Encourt Early Origins



The surname Encourt was first found in Lincolnshire where "Walter de Aincourt, who came from Aincourt, a lordship between Mantes and Magny [Normandy], where the remains of the ancient family castle still exists. Walter was cousin of Remigius, Bishop of Lincoln, the munificent builder of Lincoln Cathedral, and obtained, as his share of the spoil, no less that sixty-seven lordships in several counties, chiefly in Lincolnshire." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Burke, John Bernard, The Roll of Battle Abbey. London: Edward Churton, 26, Holles Street, 1848, Print.
"Walter d'Aincourt holds nearly sixty manors in Domesday [Book], chiefly in Lincolnshire, where Blankney was the head of his barony, and 'the Deyncourts flourished in a continual succession, from the coming-in of the Normans to the time of Henry VI.' All we known of Walter's lineage is derived from a leaden tablet inscribed to the memory of his son, William, which was found in 1670 in Lincoln Cathedral." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Cleveland, Dutchess of The Battle Abbey Roll with some Account of the Norman Lineages. London: John Murray, Abermarle Street, 1889. Print. Volume 1 of 3
In Derbyshire at Morton, another branch of the family was found. "The manor, previously given to Burton Abbey, belonged at the Domesday Survey to Walter Deincourt, and Roger Deincourt, in 1330, claimed a park here, and the right of having a gallows for the execution of criminals. The estate passed, with other lands, to the Leakes." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
