Deeds and Such

Ashover appears had been divided into four manors, which were Newhall, Oldhall, Mustersí, and Pierepontís manors. The Newhall manor, was given, in 1302, by Margaret Reresby, the widow, of Adam Reresby, to her youngest son, and the hall remained with the Reresby family with the advowson of the church. Which later became known as Eastwood Hall, this was so until the time of James I. in 1623 the year in which Sir Thos. Reresby turned the estate over to trustees, who sold the estate within the same year to a Rev. Immanuel Bourn, who at that time was the rector of Ashover,

Many of the Reresbys were to become Rectors of Ashover as can be seen from the list taken from
From The Saints and Sinners of Ashover by C. E. Lugard, 1924.

It seems that in many deeds and other legal matters the use of witnesses was a case of  having quite a few people sign the deed as a witness, whereas today the use of two witnesses is considered adequate. In the early part of the 14th century we find Sir Thomas Reresby as a witness on the following Deed poll, grant.

"Adam de Reresby of York was described in September 1328 as an appealed felon, as lacking the territorial qualification in 1332 and 1334, "

Sir Thomas Reresby was the son of Thomas J. Reresby of Thribergh in Yorkshire, Esq. by Cicely daughter of Richard, and sister and coheiress of John Gotham of Brinsforth in that county, 2 and was born about the year 1326.
His deposition proves that the greater part of his life was passed in military expeditions ; and it affords some interesting information respecting many of them. Sir Thomas Reresby married Lucy daughter of John Sheffield, Esq. and by her had four sons ; Thomas, Francis, Edmond, and James ; and a daughter, Judith, who married Richard Symmes of Barnsley.

2 Sir Thomas Reresby, the eldest son, died in 1439, and was the ancestor of the family who entered their pedigree at the Visitation of Yorkshire in 1584.

2 Sir Thomas Reresby, aged sixty and upwards, said that he had seen Sir Richard Scrope always armed in the arms Azure, a bend Or, and others of his blood, some on banners and others armed in them with differences; that he was retained with Sir Henry Scrope for the expedition by sea, when the Prince of Wales first went into Guyenne, and the said Sir Henry was with his banner with the Earl of Northampton ; that the late King Edward kept the sea at that time with the deceased Duke of Lancaster, and with his sons the Earl of Richmond, the Lord Lionel, the Lord Edmond of Langley, and others, amongst whom Sir Henry Scrope was many times armed Azure, a bend Or, with a label Argent ; that Sir Richard was also so armed before Paris, in the expedition of the late King ; and when he and his cousins were armed, they always used these arms and no other, and their ancestors before them, as he had heard his ancestors say ; and his ancestors heard it from their ancestors, that the said arms have been continually . ' and peaceably used by them, as well in tournaments during peace as in wars, they having descended to Sir Richard Scrope from the time of the Conquest, and he had never heard to the contrary. The Deponent could not say who was the first ancestor of Sir Richard that bore the said arms, it being beyond the memory of any living person. He added that he never heard of the said arms being challenged by Sir Robert Grosvenor or his ancestors, or by any person in his or their name, though he had been armed thirty-nine years at many celebrated places in the time of the late King in France, Gascony, Brittany, and Scotland, and never heard of the ancestors of Grosvenor, or of any interruption made by them to the bearing of the said arms. The arms of Sir Thomas Reresby were, Gules, on a bend Argent, three crosses flory or patee Sable.1
