Under the Marmions the manor of Charlton was held from very early times by the Botelers of Oversley. Robert Boteler held the manor of Robert Marmion about 1182. [Habington, op. cit. i, 226; Red Bk. of Bishopric of Worc. (Eccl. Com. Rec. Var. bdle. 121, no. 43698), fol. 81, 253] It was probably his son Ralph who in 1140 endowed the abbey of Alcester with half the tithes of his lordship of Charlton. [Dugdale, Hist. of Warw. 854; Dugdale, Mon. iv, 172, 175.] The mesne lordship of Charlton remained in this family [Worcs. Inq. p.m. (Worcs. Hist. Soc.), i, 42] until about 1380, when William Boteler died, leaving a daughter Elizabeth, who married Robert de Ferrers. [Dugdale, Hist. of Warw. 854]
