A number of subscribers responded to my request of
information regarding John Bulkeley and Christian
Ripariis (1360-1440) All claimed no knowledge but did
desire information of the Bulkley Woore line.

John Bulkeley and Christian Ripariis definitely are
not of the Woore line. The following information may
assist those seeking data of the Woore line:

May 7th 1381. Westminster: Complaint by Thomas de
Stafford Knight of assault and theft by many
individuals including Peter Bulkeley Lichefield Co
Stafford.

July 22nd 1428. Re Hugh Bulkyley. Grant by Malpas
Rector to Hawley Rector including Hugh de Bulkyley of
Wore of his property which he has by gift and
foeffment of Robert de Bulkyley of Broxon.

April 7th 1431. Re Hugh Bulkyley. Grant all as the
1428 grant but to Tylston Church.

April 7th 1431. Re Hugh Bulkyley. Feoffment Hugh de
Holand Parson of Hawley and Hugh de Bulkyley of Wore
to Henry Westward Parson of Tylston and William
Hugynson Chaplain on condition that the said Henry and
William enfeoff Robert (son) Roger de Bulkyley in all
said lands and tenants for life of Robert remainder to
Hugh his son and his heirs by Katherine (daughter)
William de Clutton remainder to heirs general of said
Hugh remainder to Margaret his sister, remainder to
John or Joan, bastard (son) and (daughter)of said
Hugh, remainder to right heirs of said Robert.

I am still hoping to learn something of John Bulkeley
and Christian Ripariis.

Sincerely Yours,

Paul Bulkley

Dear Paul ~

I came across the following Rivers/Lokhull lawsuit in "Pedigrees from
the Plea Rolls" published in the Genealogist, n.s. 14 (1897): 104.
Curiously, the defendant in this suit was Margaret de Monthermer, widow
of John de Montagu, Knt., whose mother's Brewes ancestry has been the
topic of discussion this past week on the newsgroup.

Dear Paul ~
Thank you for your good post.
The information below comes from the helpful online A2A Catalogue. The
(http://www.a2a.org.uk/search/documentxsl.asp?com=1&i=0&nbKey=1&stylesheet=xsl\A2A_com.xsl&keyword=Ripariis&properties=0601).
Ripariis is the Latin form of the surname, Rivers. The Rivers and
Bulkeley families have royal ancestry by way of their descent from
Rohese, wife of Sir Richard de Lucy, Chief Justice of England under
King Henry II of England.

Hampshire Record Office: Coventry of Burgate, Fordingbridge [1M53]
Coventry of Burgate, Fordingbridge
Catalogue Ref. 1M53
Bulkeley family of Fordingbridge, Hampshire
Coventry family of Fordingbridge, Hampshire
[from Administrative History] Owing to a series of early disputes
about the title to the manor of N. Burgate and hundred of
Fordingbridge, documents have survived in the collection recording the
ownership of the estate from the twelfth century. A copy of a charter
of Henry II shows that Burgate and Rockborne, which belonged to the
king at the time of the Domesdey survey (V. C. H. Hants., i, 455b) were
granted with other lands to Manser Bisset before 1175. His lands
descended to the husbands of the daughters of John Bisset (d.1241) and
in a copy of an extract from pleas of the crown, 1280, it is stated
that Burgate was held by John de Ripariis and Rockborne by John de
Wotton and Ela, his wife. A faded document without date apparently
records an agreement for the partition of all the Bisset lands between
John de Ripariis John de Wotton and Ela, his wife, and Hugh de
Plessictis and Isabella, his wife.
[from Administrative History] Sir John de Ripariis, the son of
John de Ripariis, quit claimed his title to his sister John, who made
good her right against his son John, her nephew (361/3,4). John, the
son of Joan de Ripariis and Sir William Tracy, upheld his title against
John de Ripariis, 1340, and then quit claimed to his sister Margaret
and Sir Thomas de Langley, her husband, 1341 (361/5,7). The Inquisition
post mortem after the death of Sir Thomas de Langley on 22 Oct 1361
found that he had been holding the manor of H. Burgate and hundred of
Fordingbridge as the inheritance of his wife. His daughter Margaret
having died without issue, the manor and hundred escheated to the King.
Edward III thereupon granted them to Sir Richard de Pembrugge for good
service on 1 Oct 1366 (346/3) but as his son Henry did not long survive
his death in 1375 (345) his heirs were the sons of his two sisters, Sir
Richard Burley and Sir Thomas Barre. An inquisition held at
Fordingbridge on 11 Apr 1390 declared that in 1378 Barre had
surrendered his part of the manor and hundred to Burley in exchange for
an annual rent of £20 6s. 8d., later reduced by 36s. 10d. by the grant
of certain lands in Rerefordshire (365/1,5). The rent was stated to
have been in arrear since Michaelmas 1387. The inquisition declared
that after the death of Sir Richard Burley, Beatrice, his wife, and
William, his brother, had released their claims to Sir Simon Burley,
upon whose impeachment and forfeiture in 1388 the manor and hundred
came to the king.
[from Administrative History] After consideration of claims,
Richard II made a new grant to William Lekhull and Katherine, his wife,
who claimed the manor and hundred as great-granddaughter of Sir John de
Ripariis and Maud, his wife, to hold from Easter 1390. Their right was
immediately contested by Beatrice, the widow of Sir Richard Burley
(350, 346/8). Some attempt seems to have been made to prove that the
Burleys had sold the manor to John, Duke of Lancaster. Beatrice also
sued Sir Richard Arundell and Alice, his wife, who appear to have
seized the manor in 1402. Katherine de Ripariis and John Halle, her
second husband, complained to Parliament in 1402 that they had been
dispossessed by Arundell and others, that they had suffered damage of
£190 11s., and that they had lost £10 in money, bonds to the amount
of £260 and their charters, court rolls and account rolls, while their
servant, Richard, had been bound and thrown into the 'great river
called Avene Rot. Parl., iii, 512. Proceedings of novel disseisin were
brought against Arundell and others by Halle in 1403 (352) and
Beatrice, later Beatrice de Roos, continued her fight against Halle in
1403-05 (385, 346/9). Halle apparently recovered possession and held
till his death in 1433-4 (353). He was succeeded by his son, John
Rivers alias Lekhull, who was said to have been murdered by two of his
servants in 1439. William Bulkeley of Eaton (Cheshire) was named as the
heir but John's brother Thomas, thought to have died in the wars in
France, afterwards came home and claimed the estate (372/2). Bulkeley,
who was Chief Justice of the King in Cheshire, was the son of John, son
of Christian, sister of Edmund de Ripariis, father of Katherine.
[from Administrative History] Various arrangements were now
entered into by Thomas Lekhull to determine succession to the property.
A fine was levied in 1442 whereby the manor and hundred were to be held
by Thomas for life, with remainder to Thomas Payn and Joan, his wife,
daughter of Sir Thomas Romsey and cousin of Thomas Lekhull (387).
Another fine, with the additional remainder to William Bulkeley, was
levied in 1443 (389). After the deaths of Thomas and Joan Payn, Lekhull
conveyed the manor and hundred to be held by Bulkeley and others during
his life, with remainder to Bulkeley (392). Thomas Lekhull died in 1455
(357) but the Bulkeley title to the estate was not yet secure. Between
1456 and 1460 William had had to deal with a claim by John Appleby, who
was descended from Eleanor, daughter of Sir John de Ripariis and land
(374, 394). William Bulkeley settled the manor and hundred upon his son
in 1457 (396) and this was confirmed by various deeds between 1458 and
1465 (397-401). In 1468 Charles Bulkeley dealt with a claim by Sir John
Barre, grandson of Sir Thomas Barre, to a rent charge out of the estate
(377).

Hello,

Coming back to this line of Bulkeley and the Ripariis, from the same of set of documents mentioned above, I am curious, how was Joan Romsey an heiress of the Lekhulls? It seems she had a claim as good or better than William Bulkeley's, who eventually inherited the properties in question.

And does anybody know about the family of her husband, Thomas Payn or Payne? I would think he was from the same area as the Romseys.

There seems to be a bit of information about the Romseys. See, for example,

https://www.british-history.ac.uk/vch/hants/vol4/pp452-469#anchorn237

Parishes: Romsey Extra and Infra
Pages 452-469

and

358 Writ devenerunt . ‡ 12 February 1430. [Wymbyssh].
SOMERSET. Inquisition. Wells 5 April 1430. [Poulet].
and others

But what about Thomas Payne's family?

I am also trying to confirm if this William Bulkeley was the father of Catherine, who seems to have married of Randall Brereton, esq. of Malpas, who appear to have been the parents, among others, of another Randall, who married Emma Carrington, and perhaps of Alice, who married William de Sandford.
