    • The Manor of East Luccombe
      The St. John family came into possession of East Luccombe upon marriage into the de Luccombe family. The following comes from “The parish of Selworthy in the county of Somerset, some notes on its history" by Frederick Hancock, 1897.
      In the reign of Edward, I, the manor of East Luccombe was held by Sir Baldric de Nonyngton, a person of much importance in those days. He lived at Nunnington, in the parish of Wiveliscombe, and was returned in 1300 as holding lands in the counties of Somerset, Dorset, and Southampton, to the yearly value of £^Q and more. He was one of the knights of the shire for Somerset in 1298, and formed one of the jury appointed by the king to conduct the perambulation of the Forest of Exmoor in the March of that year. John de Radyngton, Robert de Escote, and Robert de Chub worths, all, as was just, local people, were appointed as his fellow jurymen. Sir Baldric was a great soldier. It is interesting to think of his calling his levies together for the Scotch or French wars; labourers from the rich lands of the Wiveliscombe valley, artisans from the little town itself, wild hill men from Horridge and Maundown and the Brendon Hills, and stalwart husbandmen from Selworthy and Luccombe. He left an only daughter an heiress, Margaret, and her descendants took the name of Luccombe, or de Luccombe, from the parish in which they dwelt. They also owned the manor of Stockleigh Luccombe, in the parish of Cheriton Fitz paine, co. Devon. Of these estates Hugh de Luccombe died seised in the 16th Edward II, 1323. The second Inquis. p.m. of Hugh Luccombe, 10 July, 19 Edward II, 1325, no. 61, gives the following details of his estate:
      Extent of the knights' fees and advowsons of churches of Hugo de Luccombe, deceased, on the day of his death, taken at Donester, on the 10 July, 19 Edward II (1325), and the jury found : that the said Hugh had the fourth part of a knight's fee in Cloudesham, which John de Cloudesham holds in demesne of William Martyn, and it is worth per ann. 20s. ; and the fourth part of a knight's fee in Dovery, which Geoffrey de Luccombe holds in demesne, and it is worth per ann. 20s. ; and the fourth part of a knight's fee in Lynche, which John Hewyssh holds in demesne, and it is worth per ann. 30s. ; and foorth part of a knight's fee in Lynche, which the heir of Thomas de Estecote holds in demesne, and it is worth per ann. 30s. ; and the fourth part of a knight's fee in Legh Wodecote (or cok ?), which Lawrence le Tort holds in demesne of Nicholas Martyn, and it is worth per ann. i6s. ; and the fourth part of a knight's fee in Harewode, which Nicholas de Harewode holds in demesne, and it is worth i6s. ; and the eighth part of one knight's fee in Luccombe, which Roger de Roche holds in demesne, and it is worth per ann. los. ; and the fourth part of one knight's fee in Luccombe, which Walter W3miende holds in demesne, and it is worth per ann. one mark ; and the fourth part of a knight's fee, which the said Walter holds in demesne of Lawrence Tort, and it is worth per ann. one mark ; and the eighth part of one knight's fee in Overeholte, which Lawrence le Tort holds in demesne, and it is worth per ann. half mark; and the sixteenth part of one knight's fee in Dovery, which Henry de Chullinch holds in demesne, and it is worth per ann. half mark ; and the fourth part of one knight's fee in Dovery and Alreford, except the sixteenth part, which Robert Gnerard holds in demesne, and it is worth per ann. 30S. ; and the sixteenth part of one knight's fee in Luccombe, which John Fabyan holds in demesne, and it is worth per ann. half a mark; and the sixteenth part of one knight's fee in Nether Holte, which John de Holte holds in demesne, and it is worth per ann. half mark ; and the sixteenth part of one knight's in Alreford, which Walter Bronnyng holds in demesne, and it is worth per ann. half a mark ; and the sixteenth part of one knight's fee there, which the heirs of John Cadisser hold in demesne, and it is worth per ann. half a mark, in all issues about the true value.
      They also say that Hugh de Luccombe held on the day on which he died in the same county, the advowson of the church of Luccombe, which is worth per annum about the true value of the same 20 marks, and also the advowson of the church of Selworthy in the same county, which is worth per annum about the true value of 10 marks.
      Hugh de Luccombe left an only son, John de Luccombe, who died s.p. in the 19 Ed. II, leaving his sister, Elizabeth (who was born May 20, 13 Ed. II, 1320, and was baptized at Cheriton Fitzpaine), his heir-at-law. She married Sir Oliver St. John, and they had an only son, John, who died abroad in his father's lifetime, and on the death of Sir Oliver, in 1373 (13 Richard II), the manors and advowsons appear to have devolved on his brother, Henry St. John. Henry died in 1406, leaving his son, Edward, his heir-at-law. Edward, who was born 18 March, 1394-5, died after Hilary Term, 27 Henry VI (1448-9), leaving his son, William, his heir-at-law. William died in 13 Edward IV, 1473, leaving his sister Joan, who had married Nicholas Arundell, of Trerice, in the parish of Newlyn East, near Newquay, Cornwall, his heir-at-law. She died on the 5 June, 1482, and the manors, etc., descended in a direct line to the Arundells of Trerice, down to John, fourth and last baron Arundell, of Trerice, who was born 21 Nov., 1701, and succeeded to the family estates on the death of his father, on 26 Sept., 1766.
      The Calendar of Inquisitions Post Mortem and other Analogous Documents preserved in the Public Record Office, C. Edw. II. File 75 (14.) includes these details:
      403. Hugh de Luccombe
      Writ, 28 May, 16 Edward II (1323).
      Somerset. Inq. 6 June, 16 Edward II (1323).
      Luccombe. The manor (extent given), held of the king in chief by service of 2 knights’ fees.
      John his son, aged 1 year, is his next heir.

      John de Luccombe was born in 1322 (aged 1 June 6, 1323) and died in 1333/4 about 12 years old. Elizabeth de Luccombe , through whom the manor passed in the St. John family, was born at Stockleigh Luccombe on the 20th May, 1320, and was baptized on the following day at the parish church of All Saints at Cheriton Fitzpayn by Walter the chaplain. Other sources provide these details for these two children as follows:
      Alexander [St. John] bought the wardship and marriage of John de Luccombe, son and heir of Hugh de Luccombe, then a minor, 8 Edward III [1335-6]. He died young, unmarried and without issue, however, leaving his sister Elizabeth, [already] wife of Oliver St. John, then aged 13, as his heir (CIPM 7:406-7 [no. 595], 487-8 [no. 697]). Oliver St. John held lands in cos. Devon and Somerset, and died in August 1374. He married, by 19 June 1335 (the date of her proof of age), Elizabeth de Luccombe, b. 1320 at Stockleigh Luccombe, co. Devon, daughter and eventual heir of Hugh de Luccombe. Elizabeth, late wife of Alexander de St. John died Wednesday after St. Bartholomew last (writ dated 3 Sep. 19 Edw. III). Elizabeth wife of Oliver de St. John was the heir and of age (CIPM 8:468 [no. 568]). The lands concerned were Estlokcombe, Somerset (later Devon).
