knight's service, the manor of Corton, also of one messuage and one hundred acres of land, six acres of meadow, and one hundred acres of pasture in Alkanning, and likewise of the manor of Wodeland, all in Wilts, and of the manor of Uphey [Upway], Dorset, and of three hundred acres of land in Heythorn in Southpederton, and of twelve messuages and two hundred acres of land in Northpederton, in the County of Somerset, all which manors and lands descended on his death to his three daughters and heiresses, Johanna, Elizabeth, and Isabella.1 Elizabeth was married to John More, and Isabella to Robert Whiting, by whom she had three sons, George, Christopher, and John, and on her death her part descended to her eldest son, George Whiting, and, as both he and the next son, Christopher, died without issue, it came ultimately to John, the youngest son. The entirety of John Clivedon's estates thus belonged to John Whiting, John More, and Elizabeth his wife, and Johanna Clivedon; and in 1505 they made a partition by which the manor of "Selys" was (inter alia) allotted to More and his wife. Notwithstanding this, under the colour of an inquisition taken after the death of his brother Christopher, John Whiting set up a claim, as his heir to their mother's one-third part, and it was seized by the Crown Escheator pendente lite. Upon the complaint, however, of More and his wife the authorities were satisfied that they were justly entitled to the whole, and pursuant to a decree in Chancery 24 Henry VII. the Crown gave up possession to them. They were succeeded by their son, Humphrey More, of Collumpton, Devon, who died 29 Henry VIII. seised of this manor and all the Clivedon lands in and about Mere, leaving John More his son and heir, from whom they were purchased by the Chafyns.

It is unnecessary to pursue the descent from Chafyn to Grove, as that is given in detail in the History of Modern Wilts. It may be observed, however, that no notice is taken in that work of the Free which were inherited by their two daughters, Joan and Nichola, the wife of John de Lisle, as co-heiresses. The issue of Joan failed, and thereupon the entirety vested in Nichola and her descendants (De Banco Roll [16] Hillary, 14 Edw. I. 1 Exemplification, dated 29th of November, 24th Hen. VII., of Inquisitions and Proceedings in Chancery.

Chapel at Zeals: but it is clear there was one, for by letters patent, 27 Elizabeth, 1585, "All that the Free Chapel with one-fourth of an acre of land north of the Chapel situate in Zeals Clivedon" was granted to Edward Morrice and James Mayland, from whom it came to the Chafyns.

Index to the Wiltshire Institutions"

As printed by Sir Thomas Phillipps.

Compiled by the late Canon J. E. JACKSON, F.S.A., February, 1851.* INTRODUCTORY NOTES.

In the volume called "Wiltshire Institutions" Sir Thomas Phillipps has given abstracts, only from the Institution Registers of the Bishops of Sarum. There were a great many parishes in Wiltshire under Peculiar jurisdiction, the institutions to which are entered from A.D. 1548 in the Registers of the Deans of Salisbury.

The following is a list of these ancient "Peculiars" in Wiltshire, which, with a great many others in the Counties of Berks, Dorset, and Devon, constituted a large episcopal jurisdiction under the Deans of Sarum. This jurisdiction was abolished by the Queen in Council in A.D. 1847 :-.

*The MS. of this Index was purchased by the Wilts Archæological Society at the sale of Canon Jackson's Library, May 9th, 1895. It is here printed as left by the author. Its value to anyone wishing to draw up a list of incumbents of any given parish is obvious.

Easton Royal, near Pewsey, was a royal donative until A.D. 1847, and under no ecclesiastical jurisdiction.

The Institution Registers of the Bishops of Salisbury commence with that of Simon de Gandavo, the seventeenth Bishop, in A.D. 1297.

The books are by no means perfect, and the following are the omissions to be principally noticed :

N.B.

Between A.D. 1300 and 1301 many leaves are lost.

Some institutions are lost in the year 1328.

There is a long deficiency from 1354 to 1361.

Again from 1366 to 1375.

Parts of 1474 and 1475 are gone.

Part of 1481, all 1482, 1483, 1484, and part of 1485.

The entries from June, 1493, to the following February are misplaced in the Register.

The Register of Bishop Dean is lost, or was never made. The omission is from August, 1499, to May, 1502.

An omission from 1557 to 1560.

Another from 3rd March, 1584-5, to 24th January, 1591-2.

Again from Bishop Coldwell's death, 14th October, 1598, to the suc
cession of Bishop Cotton, 12th November, 1598.

A deficiency occurs from 6th October, 1645, to 21st June, 1660.
And again from the latter end of 1689 to the beginning of 1694.

1.-The Roman figures I. and II. refer to the two parts of the work; both contained in this one volume. [In part I. there are 234 pages. In part II. 107 pages.]

2.- When a number occurs within brackets it signifies that there is a second or third entry (as the case may be) of the name sought, in the page then under examination, e.g., " Aldbourne. II., 2 [2]."=In the second part of the volume, and second page, are two entries of Aldbourne.
