Collections for a History of Staffordshire, Volume 7

"Stephen de Swynnerton occurs as a juror on an inquisition taken at Stafford on Monday next before the Feast of St. Bartholomew, 3 Edw. I. (i.e. 22nd August, 1275), and in a suit tried in the Bishop's Court at Lichfield, on the Monday next after the Feast of the Exhalation of the Cross in the same year (i.e. 16th September, 1275), between Robert de Knightley and the Prior of Ronton (Raunton), the jury consisted of William Wyther, John fitz Philip de Bobynton, Hugh de Weston, Knights, John de Swinerton, Stephen his brother, Adam de Swinesheved, Henry de Caverswall, Walter de Elvedon, Robert Teverey and John de Engleton.

In the same year Agnes, the widow of John de Wytemor, sued Stephen de Swynnerton for a third of a messuage and two bovates of la in Cherleston (Chorlton), and Roger de Burgilton for a third of a messuage and ten acres of land in Wytemor (Whitmore) as her dower. The defendants prayed a view; and the suit was adjourned to Trinity Term. They subsequently called to warranty John son of John de Wytemor.

We have seen that Stephen de Uselwalle (who I take to be the same person) occurs in May, 1276, as a juror at the inquisition taken after the death of Henry de Audeley. He probably died within a year or two of this time leaving, as I suppose, at least two sons, Roger and John; and in Michaelmas Term, 6 and 7 Edw. I. (1278), William de Hatton appeared against John de Swynnerton, Roger son of Stephen, Alice de Swynnerton, and three others, in a plea that whereas the custody of two messuages and a virgate of land in Hatton belongs to him until the full age of the heir of Stephen de Swynnert, inasmuch as the said Stephen held the tenament of hi by Knight's service, and William was in peacable seisin of it, John and others named had violently ejected him. The defendants did not appear, and were summoned for the Easter Term. I take this John de Swynnerto to have been John de Swynnerton, of Swynnerton, the chief lord of the fee; I take Roger son of Stephen to have been the heir himself, who was apparently still under age; and Alic de Swynnerton was probably the widow of Stephen."
