    Biography

    "He [William] was succeeded by his son William who had married, during his father's lifetime, Elizabeth Beauchamp daughter of Sir John Beauchamp of Ryme in Dorsetshire, great-grandson of Robert de Bello Campo or Beachamp Baron of Hatch in Somerset. She afterwards became a co-heiress with her sister Joan, wife of Sir Robert Chalons, to her brother Thomas Beauchamp of Ryme, who died without issue.

    "She was the widow, without children, of Richard Branscomb. There was an assignment of dower dated the Tuesday after the Feast of St. Martin, 18 Richard II., A.D. 1394, by John Martyn, probably a trustee, to William Fortescue, the younger, and Elizabeth his wife, over all the lands in Over-Aller which were the property of the aforesaid Richard Branscomb. This assignment was sealed with the Fortescue arms, with a crescent for difference.

    "In the year 1406, being the eighth year of King Henry IV., William Fortescue and Elizabeth his wife left their manor of Estecot, "juxta Otery beatae Mariae," to John Asshe and his wife for their lives.

    "I find in Hutchins' History of Dorsetchire the following particulars of the inheritance of Elizabeth and Joan Beachamp:--- "Ryme Intrinseca.--- This little Vill is situated on the borders of the co. of Somerset. It was the seat of Sir Humphrey Beauchamp, second son of Robert de Bello Campo, Baron of Hatch in Somersetshire, whose son Sir John, by the duaghter and heir of Sir Roger Novant, had issue Sir John Beachamp of Ryme, father of Thomas, who died issueless, leaving for his heirs his sisters, wedded to Sir Robert Chalons and John (William) Fortescue. The Fortescues do not seem to have possessed this manor long. William Fortescue was Lord of Wimpstone, in Devon."

    "The children by this marriage were two sons, William and John.

    "The family estates appear by this time to have grown to a considerable extent, increased from time to time by several marriages with heiresses. From the foregoing account of grants and portions it may be gathered that this William of Wympston, or Wimstone, possessed, besides that estate, lands in Holberton, Stechleigh, Forsan, Cokesland, Broke, Donstan, Tamerton, Smytheston, Wimpell, Thurveton, and Estecot, all of them, I believe, in South Devon; besides the manor of Ryme in Dorset, inherited from the Beauchamps. Upon his death the first offset from the main trunk of the tree of descent occurs; the eldest son William succeeding at Wimstone, and, as we shall presently see, becoming the origin of several branches of Fortescues; while the second son, John, although he inherited but a small portion of the paternal estates was, through his three sons, the source whence at least as many considerable houses sprang."[1]
