Family notes:

·         After Andrew de Esteley’s father Thomas was killed at the battle of Evesham in 1265, Thomas’ lands were granted to Warin de Bassinburn, but were restored under the Dictum of Kenilworth.

·         According to multiple researchers this family is quite complicated due to intermarriages, and repetition of names in various branches at nearby locations, especially of Wimpole.
