bullet  Information about this person:

• Background Information. 240
The first record Adam de Chetwynd, first lord of Chetwynd, [Forest Roll. Mt. Gilbert, Eyton, viii. p. 82] appears in 1180 when he was fine three shillings for an encroachment in the King's Forest. In 1 John (1199), the same Adam de Chetwynd and six others who have been jurors in a case of novel disseinsin tried at Shewsbury, were summoned to Westminster to show how that assize terminated. Chetwynd was a night at this time. We know this since at the same time he was summoned to Westminster, he was a visor in a case of "Essogin," which was business that, at that time, was always entrusted to knights. [Abb. Plac. Term Mich. 1 Joh. Rot. So. Eyton, viii. p. 106, 82] Sir Adam died in 1210. He is said to have married Agnes, daughter of John Lord Lovel of Tichmersh and minster-Lovel, Oxon, which is confirmed by the fact that his grandson, Sir John Chetwyn, inherited property at Baxterley in North Warwickshire "from his kinsman John, the son of William Lovell." [Blacstone's Commentaries, Ed. 1791, iii. p. 278]
