    • In 1411, Sir Thomas FitzNichol arranged his Hill estate so that its remainder would pass to Robert and Katherine Poyntz and their children (who are named here). The manor at Hull thus passed to their son Nicholas, and then down several generations of Poyntzs to the Nicholas who married his distance cousin Joan Berkeley, daughter of the fifth baron Berkeley. FitzNichol's Nympsfield estate passed to grandson John Browning; however, he conveyed it back to his cousin, Thomas Poyntz.
