 Thomas married Juliana.
      We know one daughter was Margery DE HAMPTON - married Thomas CRADOCK of Admundeston

And this leads to a working hypothesis of mine....that they had a son named RALPH, and that here we have our line of Hampton’s (that lead to the US).

that states Richard Gervais had two daughters, one Alice, the other "Nichola"   - but  I can find no record of a Nichola.   However, Nicholas is named as a son in Shaw’s piece.  And I can find record of Nicholas:   Collections for a History of Staffordshire:  Legal document from Blithfield mentions both Ralph de Hampton and Nicholas de Hampton (in Latin):   "Ex dono Jacubi de Blithfield quemdam boscum in Blithfield,vocatum le Frith.

    |  +-4. Hugh DE HAMPTON (working hypothesis as a son of Gervase) - It is important to note that in 1314 HUGH de HAMPTON sued Anselm le Mareschal and others for tenements located near Colton Manor, on the southern boundary of the parish on Lord Lichfield's land, near Stafford.   So Hugh and his family were in Stafford[shire], as attested by many deeds that mention them.    1283-4:    BANCO ROLL, Michaelmas, 11—12 E. I.  Staff.   Margaret the widow of HUGH de HAMPTON sued RALPH son of HUGH de HAMPTON for a third of a messuage and a carnéate of land in Hampton near Blythefeud, and she sued Richard Parson of the Church of Gretewyz for a third of five acres, and Robert de Hampton for a third of two acres in the same vill as her dower. And the defendants had been summoned to be at Salop at fifteen days from St. John the Baptist, and they made default, and the dower claimed was taken into the King's hands, and they were summoned for this day, and they now came, and Margaret claimed the dower by their default.   And Ralph and Robert denied they were ever summoned to be at Salop at the Quindene of St. John the Baptist, and they are prepared to defend it by their testimony as the court should think fit. It is therefore considered that they should wage their law against her (vadiarent ei Irgem duodécima manu.),1 and they are to come with their compurgators the (legibus) at the Quindne of St. Martin.

    |        +-6. Richard DE HAMPTONRichard, son of John, mentioned in the deed of 10 April 1351.   In about the time of King Edward III the Parish of Blithfield contained five townships; namely: Blithfield, Admaston, Newton, Bold (or Booth, as it was then called), and Hampton.
    |     +-5  Robert de HAMPTON (working hypothesis another son of Hugh)    1326:   Richard de Blithfield, having the estate of ROBERT de HAMPTON "in the wood called Little-hay," in Colton, conveys it by a further deed to Robert de Luttle-hay, with rights of herbage, etc.   The new owners retained possession until Elizabeth, daughter of Richard de Blithfield, married Sir Ralph Bagot who carried "Little-hay," together with Blithfield into the hands of the Bagots.      The Family of Bagot were possessed of Lands, and seated in the county of Stafford, before the Conquest; though no absolute proof is to be adduced till the general Survey of Estates, made by command of William the Conqueror, A.D. 1086, when they are recorded as possessors of a moiety of Bagot's Bromley, which they held of Robert de Stafford.”   

     +-3. William DE HAMPTON (son of Stephen) (died abt 1246-9) (died not long before November 1249) - About 1222 WILLIAM de HAMPTON sold Oseney Abbey his mill in Hampton with a croft and arable and meadow land. Within the next few years the abbey received other gifts of lands and rents from William and his tenants, and in 1279 possessed two water-mills and over 4 virgates of land.   Early in the 13th century WILLIAM of HAMPTON on account of his debts to the Jews was obliged to part with some of his valuable meadow-land, his mill, and fishery as well as arable land and the miller's cottage.  His grant to Oseney and other Oseney charters dated between 1220 and 1234 throw some light on economic affairs at Hampton at this time.  No record of the church at Hampton Poyle has been found before about 1225, when the rector Simon witnessed a charter for the lord of the manor, William de Hampton.    The manor of EAST WELLOW was held of the king at the time of the Domesday Survey by Agemund, who had previously held it as an alod of King Edward. At the beginning of the 13th century the manor was held of the king in chief by STEPHEN de HAMPTON.  WILLIAM de HAMPTON, son and heir of Stephen, granted his estate in East Wellow, about 1242, to the Abbot and convent of Netley.
      sp: Alice - In the following year [1243] Denise the widow of Stephen gave up her right to dower in the manor,  and Laurence de Coldecot, with the consent of his wife, Mabel daughter of William de Hampton, gave up to the abbey everything which Mabel had, or in the future might have, of the grant of her father in Wellow.   When William de Hampton died, not long before November 1249, his widow Alice brought actions against the abbot for dower in both the estates at Wellow.   
        |-4. Mabel DE HAMPTON - On 27 October 1243 the abbot of Edwardstowe for 8 marks secured a charter from Lawrence de Goldecot, husband of William de Hampton's daughter Mabel, which, with Mabel's assent, barred all her rights in the estate that William had granted the abbey.    This charter adds that Mabel had issued her own confirmation of her father's charter, and had handed over this charter and her own to the abbey.
       +-4. Stephen (2nd) DE HAMPTON (died 1252) - When William de Hampton died, not long before November 1249, his widow Alice brought actions against the abbot for dower in both the estates at Wellow.   The abbot successfully vouched to warrant him the abbot of Leicester, who had to supply Alice with lands worth 11s 8d in Leicestershire, and William's son and heir STEPHEN de HAMPTON (in respect of the manor); as Stephen now had insufficient lands left in Hampshire, he had to supply Alice with 9s ½ d worth of his lands in Oxfordshire.   In 1166 HAMPTON manor was held in chief as 1 knight's fee by Philip of Hampton (de Hanton'), who was succeeded in 1182 by his son Stephen,  in 1220 by his grandson William, and in 1246 by his great-grandson Stephen. STEPHEN died in 1252 leaving an estate held in chief as ½ knight's fee.  His heir was his daughter Alice, an infant.
           sp: UNKNOWN
          +-5. Alice DE HAMPTON – an infant when her father Stephen died.   Stephen died in 1252 leaving an estate held in chief as ½ knight's fee.  His heir was his daughter Alice, an infant whose wardship, after passing through several hands, was granted to Walter de la Poyle, who had married her by 1267.  After Walter's death in 1298 Alice continued to hold the manor of 'Hamptone Stevene' as her own inheritance.  The date of her death is uncertain, but she survived her son John, who inherited Walter's Surrey estates and died in 1317.  John's elder son and successor John died in 1332. (By 1335 Henry de la Poyle, brother and heir of the younger John, was in possession of Hampton Poyle.
             sp: Walter DE LE POYLE (founded Poyle-Hampton Family) ‘History of Hampton Poyle, co Oxford’ -  Until at least 1267, when Walter de la Poyle became lord, the village was called 'Philipeshamton' or 'HAMPTON STEPHANI' after its 12th-century lord and his descendants.
