BAGOT

THE BAGOT FAMILY

Chsbagotarms.jpg

The Bagots of Blithfield are one of the oldest established families in Staffordshire. 'Bagod' is recorded in the Domesday book as having land holdings near Uttoxeter. In the 12th. century they established their land holding in Abbots Bromley and added Blithfield to it by marriage in the 14th. Century. They were a very distinguished family and many Bagots held positions in the courts of successive monarchs. In 1780 the then Sir William Bagot accepted a peerage and became Baron Bagot of Bagot's Bromley.

In 1322 Robert DeWasteney sold the smaller manor in Colton called Little Hay to Richard de Blithfield. When Elizabeth de Blithfield married Sir Ralph Bagot. Little Hay Manor in Colton became part of the landholdings of the Bagot family and remained so until the mid 20th. Century . Through the centuries one or other of the younger sons of the Bagots would live here such as Anthony Bagot in the 17th. Century but mainly it was tennanted.

The Manor court for Colton was held at Little Hay presided over by the Bagots and the family have taken an active part in the affairs of Colton through the centuries.

BLOUNT

THE BLOUNT FAMILY

Sir Walter Blount inherited the main manor of Colton through his wife, Mary Aston, in 1770. The Blount family had their main family seat at Mawley Hall in Soddington, Worcestershire.
Chsblount.jpg

This family could trace their ancestry back to a lord in the service of William at the Conquest. They numbered amongst their ancestors "that warlike Blount" mentioned by Shakespeare in Henry IV as a brave opponent of Hotspur.

After her husband's death Mary, Lady Blount, lived at Bellamour in Colton and in 1796, she had a larger house built close to the first one for her second son Edward. The Blount's were a Catholic family at a time when Catholics could not practice their faith openly. Therefore included in the building was a chapel so that the family could practice their faith in secret. Some of Edward's children are recorded as being baptised there.

Mary is seen on the left in this picture.

She died a terrible death in 1805 whilst staying with her son, burnt to death when her dress caught fire. Her son Edward Blount continued to live in Colton until he sold the property in 1824.

BOUGHEY

THE BOUGHEY FAMILY

The Boughey or Boghay family came to live in Colton sometime in the late 1540's probably from the Audley area in north Staffordshire. They were a family of Yeoman farmers who had prospered by good marriages and wise land deals. They purchased the farm in Colton that had been previously known as The Grange from George Fowler who had acquired it at the Dissolution of the Monastries from Henry VIII. It had previously belonged to St. Thomas's Priory in Stafford. The cost of purchase by the Boughey's was £100.

Chsbougheyhf.jpg

Sampson, the first of the Boughey's in Colton, renamed the farm Boughey Hall Farm and entered Colton village society as a fairly prosperous land owner. Sampson, his son George and in turn, his son Sampson, all hold various offices within the parish over the next century. The last Sampson Boughey died without male heirs in 1658 and the estate passed to his five daughters. The youngest daughter Constance married Whitehall Degge, son of Sir Simon Degge a distinguished Staffordshire judge and antiquarian. Whitehall and Constance bought out the other sisters for £750 and became the sole owners of Boughey Hall Farm.


Boughey Hall Farm as it looks today

Constance had two children by this marriage, the first, a little girl, died in infancy. Shortly afterwards her husband Whitehall died and Constance was left a widow with a son. The Boughey's were a Catholic family and in 1678 Constance married again, this time to a very prominent Catholic, Thomas Whitgreave of Moseley Old Hall near Wolverhampton. Thomas Whitgreave was famous for being one of the rescuers of Charles II as he fled from Cromwell's troops after the Battle of Worcester. On his accession King Charles had rewarded Thomas for his brave help. By this marriage Boughey Hall farm passed into the Whitgreave family and remained so until the 1920's.

When Constance remarried she went to live at Moseley Old Hall taking her son with her. Moseley was an important centre for Catholics in the area and they frequently secretly harboured Jesuit priests despite the risk to their lives for doing so. Sir Simon Degge, her father in law by her first marriage, knew this and began proceedings in the Star Chamber to gain custody of his young grandson so that he could not be brought up in a Catholic household. Unfortunately for Constance he succeeded and she was never to have contact with him again.
