  • Notes 

  • Possibly of Woodford and Nettleswell: https://www.british-history.ac.uk/vch/essex/vol8/pp206-213#anchorn35

    Sir William Martin was succeeded in 1679 by his son Cuthbert (d. 1697) whose son, another William Martin, died childless in 1717. Netteswell had been settled on William's wife Mary (d. 1764). She was succeeded by the Revd. Matthew Blucke of Hunsdon (Herts.), a descendant of Cuthbert Martin's sister. Blucke, who took the surname Martin, died in 1766 leaving Netteswell to his son, also Matthew Martin. Matthew Martin sold Netteswell c. 1772 to Thomas Blackmore of Briggens, in Hunsdon. (fn. 37) In 1778 the estate comprised 797 a. (fn. 38)

    Netteswellbury manor house adjoined the church to the west. It was let to tenants until c. 1640, when Sir William Martin moved there. It seems to have remained the family seat until the death of William Martin in 1717

    He [Matthew the son] married Katharine the eldest Daughter of Sir Richard Hawkins of Middle Aston in the County of Oxford, Kt, who was Alderman of the city of London, and gives for his Arms, a Lion Rampant.
