The Lordship of Welton is in the Fawsley hundred of Northamptonshire two miles from Daventry and twelve miles from Northampton. The area of the Lordship is about 1750 acres and includes the attractive village of Welton.

In the Doomesday Book 1086 records that Baldwin was holding the Lordship in the reign of Edward the Confessor. William the Conqueror gave the Lordship to Osborn, who was in possession in 1086.

The Testa de Nevill, which was written about 1242 records tha Robert Mallory was then Lord of the Manor which was attached to the honour of Leicester. The Mallory family continued to hold the Lordship for serveral generations, Sir John Mallory was Lord in 1421. Ellen daughter of Sir John Mallory inherited the Title which came to her husband Sir John Bernard. He died Lord of the Manor in 1468 leaving another heiress Margaret who married Thomas Peyton. They conveyed the Lordship to Welton’s most famous Lord of the Manor William Catesby.

William Catesby was a great Royalist and supporter of King Richard III, he held the office of Esquire of the King’s body. There were many references to him in Shakespeare’s play “KING RICHARD III”. On that fateful morning the 22nd August 1485 Catesby fought with great bravery alongside his Majesty King Richard III at Bosworth Field where he was eventually taken prisoner.

Three days later he died on the scaffold at Leicester. The Lordship was forfeited to King Henry VII who remained Lord of the Manor for four years before conveying the Lordship to Sir David Owen. It is believed that Sir David Owen was the natural son of Owen Tudor, the King’s Grandfather.

Sir David’s grandson conveyed the Lordship to Sir Richard Knightley of Fawsley in 1572. From the Knightley’s the title descended through the Northampton family of Newport until they conveyed the Lordship to William Adams in 1647.

The Adams family owned the Lordship for 157 years until 1804 when Samuel Miller Adams conveyed it to the Clarke family. The Lordship was conveyed in May 1989 to the current owner Mr Evans.
