There was an Inquisition upon the death of Margaret de Nevile in 12 Edward II (1318-1319), when it was found that amongst her great possessions were a messuage of two bovates of land at Potterton. [Dodsworth M.S. 44] Margaret was the wife of Geoffrey de Neville, a cadet of the Raby family and a Justice Itinerat for Pleas of the forest who died in 1285, and she was a daughter to heir of John Longvillers. [Coucher Book ob Kirstall Abbey, Thoresby Soc. Pub, vol. vii, pg. 50] It is possible that the land at Potterton was part of the extensive grant made by de Lacy, in whose fee it then was to de Longvillers, and that Margaret had inherited it from her father. In 1341, Margaret's son Robert, was shown be the Survey to be holding the land. "Robert de Nevill, knight, holds the town of Podryngton by the service of one knight's fee, rendering by the year Id. And he owes suit of court for one messuage of 9 acres of land which Richard Cisson hold of him."
