By John E.Trivett Ross-on- Wye, Herefordshire. England.
Oswald held Durborough of the Abbey in 1066 and Roger de Courcelles in 1086. In 1256 Sir Thomas Trivett married Eleanor Braunche' granddaughter and heir of Wandrill de Courcelle. Thereby becoming Lord of Durborough Manor (Doddington) and estates. Known as Durborough Doddington by 1514. Sir John Trivett c1332 - c1396. lived here and the last person I record in our family to be here was Eleanor Trivett d1400 wife of John Pokeswell daughter of Sir Thomas Trivett cousin to Sir John .
The Trivett Arms at Doddington Hall, Somerset.
During this period we held twenty three(+) Manors and estates mainly around Bridgwater, but also in Devon and Dorset.
A book, The Ancient Borough of Bridgwater, in the county of Somerset by the Rev. Arthur Herbert Powell 1907. He mentions our family and states The Trivett badge ( shield ) is still to be seen on the porch of Doddington Church and in Doddington Hall. ( I visited the church and unfortunately the shield, due to time and erosion, is no longer visible, and worse still the inscription inside the church noting detail of the shield does not mention our family and incorrectly assigns it to another family.)
