"In 1540 the 13 yardlands and 4 messuages were held by Giles Bannister (fn. 174) of Apperley, in Deerhurst. Giles (d. 1543) was survived by his sons William, Thomas, and John, to the last of whom he left the reversion after six years of a tenement in Hazleton. (fn. 175) The same or another William Bannister (d. 1604), who bought a manor in Turkdean, (fn. 176) was succeeded in that manor and in a principal house and 10 yardlands in Hazleton by his son Thomas and left 4 yardlands in Hazleton with a house there called the Nether House to a younger son George. (fn. 177) Thomas (d. 1633) was succeeded by his brother Richard (fn. 178) (d. c. 1640), whose successor was his nephew William Bannister, (fn. 179) son and heir of George (d. 1637). (fn. 180) After William's death in 1685 his estate was evidently merged in Hazleton manor that his eldest surviving son William had bought in 1683. (fn. 181) The Halls' medieval residence was probably on the site of the earthworks on the south side of Hazleton village near the house called the Priory. (fn. 182) The location of the Nether House, apparently also known as Watkins House, (fn. 183) is not known; in 1672 one of the Bannisters was assessed for tax in Hazleton on only a single hearth. (fn. 184)"[1]
