• Background Information. 802
Bartholomew Fitz Torret attested to a charter which passed in or about the year 1196 in which he is called Bartholomew de Morton, and his name is followed by that of Richard Corbet, his son-in-law.

Bartholomew was assessed 40s. in 1214, to a King's Tallage, that arose from the confiscation of Bartholomew's estates. A letter from the Sheriff of Shropshire, written to King John soon after Easter 1215, espressly names Bartholomew Turet as one of the only seven Salopians who had been, and still continued to be adverse to King John. On 25 Feb 1216, King John orders William, Earl of Pembroke to give Bartholomew Turet's land and Castle of Morton to Engeram de Pratellis, to hold during King's pleasure. A Write of King Henry III, dated 4 Nov 1217, certifies that Bartholomew Turet had returned to the fealty and service of the Crown.

Sir Bartholomew de Moreton appears in his rank as a Shropshire Knight in 1229. He was deceased in 1235, and was succeeded in Shropshire by his grandson, Richard Corbet, son and heir of Richard Corbet by Joan, daughter and coheir of Bartholomew.
