Abstract:
Deeds relating to property of the Pinchpool alias Pynchepole family and other families in Windrush, Gloucestershire, c.1270-1495, 1683.

Shelfmarks: MS. Don. c. 168/1-38

Extent: 38 items

Windrush village

Windrush is a small settlement in the Cotswolds, near the Oxfordshire border. The Gloucestershire Subsidy Roll for 1327 lists only twelve inhabitants liable for taxation, and there were still only twelve households in 1563. Pinchpool manor was one of three manors in Windrush. For further details see the Victoria history of the county of Gloucester (1965), vol. vi, pp. 178-84.

Scope and Content

The Windrush deeds may have formed part of an archive of the Pinchpool family. Ten of them relate to members of the family and their property, 1308-1495 (MS. Don. c. 168/1-10). MS. Don. c. 168/5, dated 1434, refers to 'Pynchepolescourt', and the rights associated with the property. Another group of deeds (MS. Don. c. 168/11-19) concern the transfer of a property in Windrush from William Andreu, 1273-4, through various hands to John Barbour of Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, 1476, and on to John Pynchepole of Windrush and Thomas Walle in 1483. Other deeds include a letter of attorney to Walter Pinchpoll, 1409 (MS. Don. c. 168/32); and several have Pinchpool witnesses (MS. Don. c. 168/29-32, 34, dated 1371-1411).

MS. Don. c. 168/1, a deed of 1308, the earliest deed mentioning the Pinchpools, was given in Manuden, Essex. This suggests that the Pinchpool family of Windrush have their origins in Essex (they do not even appear as witnesses in any deeds before 1308), and presumably derive their name from Pinchpools in the parish of Manuden.

Winchcombe Abbey was a landowner in the parish of Windrush, and many of the names mentioned in the deeds in this catalogue can be found in the register of the abbey - see under 'Wenric' in the index to ed. David Royce, Landboc sive registrum monasterii Beate Mariae Virginis et Sancti Cenhelmi de Winchelcumba, (2 vols., Exeter, 1902-3).

Arrangement

The information about the deeds derives from typescript notes and a schedule acquired with the documents, and now kept with them (MS. Don. c. 168/38). The schedule describes the documents in five groups (see 'Scope and Content' above): (A) the Pinchpool group (MS. Don. c. 168/1-10; (B)-(D) three groups of deeds with internal connections (MS. Don. c. 168/20-2; MS. Don. c. 168/23-7; MS. Don. c. 168/11-19; and (E) a miscellaneous group (MS. Don. c. 168/28-37). These groupings have been retained, though the order in which the groupings are presented is different. Thus the present catalogue follows a different sequence of item numbers to those given in the schedule, and also incorporates several minor amendments and some additions. There is a conspectus after the catalogue entries. The modern envelopes in which the deeds are contained also have notes written on them, including lists of witnesses. The witnesses have been included in the descriptions below, with many revisions.

Acquisition

Bought, Sotheby's, 25 June 1985, lot 42, with the aid of the Friends of the Bodleian, and the V&A Purchase Grant Fund.

Restrictions on Access

The deeds must be read in the Special Collections Reading Room in the New Library. They are fragile and should be handled with care. MS. Don. c. 168/1, 3, 6, 11-15, 18-20, 26-27, 29 and 31 must only be opened under the supervision of the superintendent of the reading room.
