I soon found a record on the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-days Saints website of a Lamrock CURTIS marrying Ann HIPPISLEY in 1798.Lamrock and Ann had six children, including Thomas, born in 1808.I then discovered that my great-great-great-grandfather was also called Thomas CURTIS, and his marriage certificate was the final piece in the puzzle, as it revealed that his father's name was Lamrock.I have not yet been able to conclusively prove that my HIPPISLEY ancestors were related to the Ston Easton HIPPISLEYs, but the fact that Chewton Mendip lies less than three miles from Ston Easton makes it incomprehensible that the two families were not somehow connected.The neighbouring manor of Ston Easton was bought by John HIPPISLEY in 1544 for the sum of £457-3s-4d.The manor had previously belonged to Bruton Abbey, but the land became available as a result of the Dissolution in 1539.My grandfather's full name was Alfred William Hippesley MATTHEWS - "Roy" was just a nickname.

His younger brother William, Lord WALDEGRAVE of North Hill, was a prominent Conservative M. in the 1980s and was also a governor of my old school.

When my grandparents, Roy and Winifred MATTHEWS, were sorting out their wills, their solicitor noticed my grandfather's name and asked whether he was related to the family of the same name who lived at Ston Easton.

My grandparents had no idea what he was talking about.

Also, a survey of Whitnell in 1580 shows a William HIPPISLEY paying the highest rent of all the tenants, suggesting he was living at the manor house.

So it seems that William, and possibly his descendants, may have lived at Turner's Court.
