40.3.4 Researching the Durnfords -Hubert de Derneford from 1149 and as yet unmatched family members

This post contains the names of some other Derneford's at the moment unmatched but perhaps helpful to others trying to locate their ancestors.

Hugo de Derneford
Hubert de Derneford  of Suffolk
Walter de Derneford   of Huntington
Philip de Derneford   of London
Frances de Durnford
his daughter Mary      of Durnford who married Arundel      Likely they were then in Cornwall
Clement de Derneford  of York
Richard Durnford

One thing to remember is the closeness of all the towns in the south of England.  The Church was responsible for looking after the towns, and the Bristol Cathedral and Salisbury Cathedral both included lands around Cornwall, Dorset and Devon.

Hubert de Derneford   Benefactor of Sibton Abbey in Sufolk  in 1149 

Sibton Abbey, an early Cistercian abbey located near Yoxford, Suffolk, was founded about 1150 by William de Chesney, High Sheriff of Norfolk and Suffolk. A sister house of Warden Abbey, near Bedford, Bedfordshire, Sibton Abbey was the only Cistercian abbey in East Anglia.

Sibton Abbey was founded by the normal complement of 13 monks, but by the thirteenth century the numbers of monks and lay brothers had grown, and the Abbey had grown rich, owning lands across southeast England, including estates in Norfolk, Suffolk and on the borders of Cambridgeshire, as well as within 10 parishes of the city of Norwich.

 From the beginning of the thirteenth century the Abbey also hosted a hospital at its gate dedicated to St. John the Baptist which cared for the sick. The Abbey was one of the main religious houses under control of the Bishop of Norwich in the See of Norwich. Sibton's architectural style was in the austere Cistercian model.

In the intervening years, Sibton grew rich on proceeds from the wool trade, which built so many grand English churches. Although Suffolk wool wasn't of the finest quality, according to some historians, often stained with tar or grease, it was nevertheless in great demand, particularly in East Anglia, which had many Flemish weavers anxious to convert it into exportable cloth.

It would seem that Hubert was either known as Hugh or had a son Hugh, who

Hugo de Darnford gave this to the prior and convent of the Holy Trinity in Ipswich and the impropriation was granted 36 Henry VIII to Sir Thomas Pope Knight  The grange and estate 
called Derrnfords, in Foxhall Nacton Hallowtree and Ingulveston or Iselton belonged to the abbot and convent of Sibton and was by them grnated to Thomas Duke of Norfolk   (1500 Book)

The records of Foxhall perhaps need updating

Foxhall is a civil parish in the Suffolk Coastal district of Suffolk, England, a few miles east of Ipswich. It is adjacent to the parishes of Kesgrave to the north, Martlesham to thenorth east, Brightwell to the east, Purdis Heath to the south and the borough of Ipswich
to the west. The three parishes of Brightwell, Foxhall and Purdis Heath  have a
common council.

Foxhall was recorded in Domesday as "Foxehola".

The history and meaning (`fox-hole') of the name Foxhall and many other place-names in the parish are studied in a paper by Briggs. The survey mentions 1 holding under Foxhall; 
15 acres valued at 2 shillings held by the Abbot of Ely.

Under the heading of "Derneford", "which is no doubt Darnford in Foxhall, there was 
80 acres and 2 acres of meadow, 3 bordars in Saxon times having 4 ploughteams
when it was valued at 40 shillings, but at the time of the survey 3 ploughteams only,
when it was valued at 15 shillings."

About Darnford Park

Situated either side of Darnford Lane, Lichfield, Darnford Park covers 190,000 square metres of public open space.

Walter de Derneford

1295 Walterus de Deneford a Juror for the Hundred of Normancross in the County of Huntington

Between Anglo-Saxon times and the nineteenth century Huntingdonshire was divided for administrative purposes into 4 hundreds, plus the borough of Huntingdon. Each hundred had a separate council that met each month to rule on local judicial and taxation matters.
Huntingdonshire was divided into four roughly equally sized hundreds: Norman Cross, Leightonstone, Hurstingstone, and Toseland, which respectively fill the northern, western, eastern and southern quarters of the county.

The hundreds were probably of very early origin, and that of Norman Cross is referred to in 963. The Domesday Survey, besides the four existing divisions of Norman Cross, Toseland, Hurstingstone and Leightonstone, which from their assessment appear to have been double hundreds, mentions an additional hundred of Kimbolton, since absorbed in Leightonstone, while Huntingdon was assessed separately at 50 hides. The boundaries of the county have scarcely changed since the time of the Domesday Survey, except that parts of the Bedfordshire parishes of Everton, Pertenhall and Keysoe and the Northamptonshire parish of Hargrave were then assessed under Huntingdonshire.
