Histories of Stoke Gifford

This is a reduced version of the History of Stoke Gifford CD available from Stoke Gifford Parish Council.

In order to fit into my available webspace I have reduced the amount of information available.

Hence the "more More information available on request and on the CD Version " notes.

If you have any information, memories, photos etc, that you would like to share please email me or contact the Parish Clerk at 01454 865202   

This aim of this history is to bring together as much as possible of the known history of Stoke Gifford that is scattered around various institutions and to capture memories and memorabilia of the local residents. Much of the information is copyright and the owners have allowed the information to be reproduced here only. Obviously this is an ongoing task and anyone wishing to help would be very welcome.

The word Giffarde meant one with round cheeks and double chin in Norman times. In Saxon, Stoche meant "property of, or dependent farmstead", and at the time of Domesday, the Manor was held by Osbern Giffard, a supporter of William the Conqueror.

 Hence we have Stoche Giffarde.

A series of evaluations (SGSMR 7424;7442;10574; 14103) has revealed traces of an extensive Bronze Age Settlement in this area. {1} Sources and further reading
Unpublished document: Evans D R. 1997. Pers Comm (Evans D R 1997).


1200 BC Iron Age
At the former Stoke Park Hospital (Fig.1), possible Iron Age field boundaries, kilns
and a hearth were uncovered during an archaeological evaluation (Wessex Archaeology
1999)

43 AD- 410 AD- Roman
Ditches containing Roman pottery and the stone foundations of a rectangular
structure were uncovered during excavation in advance of quarrying in the vicinity of Stoke
House (Jancar 1981), and a small quantity of Roman pottery was retrieved during evaluation
prior to the construction of the Abbey Wood complex (RPS Clouston 1992).

43 - 410 AD Roman
SMR Number Name 1331 Roman Settlement Hatchet Lane Stoke Gifford
Description:
This site was excavated by Dr A. J. Parker as a Univ. of Bristol training dig in 1977.Parker refer to a hoard of 3000 coins found in 1880 (SGSMR11009). The latest finds from the excavation are of a similar date to the coins,C4.Period of occupation provisionally dated to mid C4. {1} Area re-developed by Bovis Homes Development and a small scale excavation in 1977 and 1978 revealed part of a Romano-British Settlement. Several structures, iron slag and bronze scrap found. Two inhumations were found cut into Roman structures {2} Evidence of Roman occupation at Stoke Gifford has been found in the fields on the north western side of the village between Hatchet Lane and the railway, and probably extending into the fields on the east side of Hatchet Lane, extending as far northwards as Gipsy Patch Lane and Mead Lane

410 – 1000 -Post Roman
Excavations in 2005 at Hewlett Packard, Filton, revealed the truncated remains of 51 inhumation burials within an isolated post-Roman cemetery. All of the burials were extended and east-west aligned, and were arranged in rows and groups. The tradition of east/west-aligned graves is a common late Roman and post-Roman practice, and these were not necessarily Christian. The largest group comprised 24 burials clustered around a central grave that contained an unusual skeleton and evidence for a distinctive burial rite. Overall there were slightly more females than males (where sex could be determined) and ten children.

In the museum of the Somerset Archaeol Soc is an exhibit of "coins, lance-head, & a piece of iron ore found at Stoke Gifford by the Rev E. J. Everard" {1} The objects from Stoke Gifford were located in the Somerset County Museum, they consist of the following: an Anglo Saxon scramasax (sword) and iron bell said to have been found with the coins of Burgred of Mercia, Aethelred & Alfred. Unfortunately no details of the circumstances of the find were recorded. The date of the reporting of the find fits well with the date of the construction of the Bristol and South Wales 1858-63 and it is suggested that the Saxon material may have been recovered at this time. The site has been mapped on a section of the said railway but is only intended as a guide. {2}

Milicent, daughter of Maurice (III) Lord Berkeley (d. 1326) and sister of Thomas (III) Lord Berkeley (d. 1361) and of Maurice de Berkeley of Stoke Gifford (d. 1347), was married about 1314 to John Mautravers the younger (d. 1364).

1321
John Mautravers the younger (d. 1364). John's career was a spectacular one. [GEC viii. 580-6.] He took part with the Berkeleys in the Despenser war of 1321-2 and forfeited his lands in 1322 as a result, fleeing abroad. He returned with Isabella and Mortimer in 1326 and quickly became a major supporter of the new regime, being appointed one of the keepers of Edward II at Berkeley Castle with his brother-in-law Thomas Lord Berkeley. In 1329, for these and other services, he was granted the inheritance which the last Giffard of Brimpsfield had forfeited in 1322, and was summoned to parliament in 1330. He then became involved in the earl of Kent's so-called conspiracy and had to flee abroad again in the summer of 1330. In the following November Edward III staged his dramatic coup at Nottingham Castle, and one of his first independent acts was to pursue the matter of his father's death. As a result, Mautravers had to stay abroad for the next twenty years.

1322
Petitioners: Thomas Cobham, Bishop of Worcester. Name(s): Cobham, Thomas Addressees: King and council. Occupation: Bishop of Worcester Nature of request: Thomas, Bishop of Worcester states that John Giffard, who held the manor of Stoke Gifford of him as of the right of his church, and several other tenants who held of him, have forfeited their lands and tenements in war against the King, so that these lands and tenements are now in the King's hand. He asks that the services and customs due to him from the said manor might be given to him, so that he does not lose and that his church is not disinherited. Nature of endorsement:

SC 8/150/7482 AP King and council. Occupation: Bishop of Worcester Nature of request: Thomas Cobham , Bishop of Worcester states that John Giffard, who held the manor of Stoke Gifford of him as of the right of his church, and several other tenants who held of him, have forfeited their lands and tenements in war against the King, so that these lands and tenements are now in the King's hand. He asks that the services and customs due to him from the said manor might be given to him, so that he does not lose and that his church is not disinherited. Nature of endorsement: Date derivation: CFR 1319-27 p.97 is dated 18 February 1322, and CCR 1318-23 p.426 is dated 5 March 1322. If the manor was restored, this petition would seem to date from around February 1322, but, if, as the petition seems to suggest, the manor was held by John Giffard and not his mother, it might be later, but before 1327.

CCCXIII. STOKE GIFFARD, anciently Stocke,
The history of the county of Gloucester‎ - Page 359
by Thomas Rudge, Sir Robert Atkyns - History - 1803
Is a parish, containing 2000 acres, four miles N. from Bristol, and thirty-two s. from Gloucester. The soil is various, but generally of clay, and in a large proportion applied to pasture.
The name was added to distinguish it from other Stokes (42) (314) in the county, derived from the family who were proprietors for many generations.
The manor of Stoke was given, among others, by the Conqueror to Osborn Gilford (160). In 1338 it passed into the family of Berkeley after the death of Margaret, widow of John Giffard, who was executed at Gloucester for rebellion against Edward the second.
Sir Maurice Berkeley, the grantee, was the second son of Maurice Lord Berkeley, of Berkeley castle, in whose posterity it lineally descended from father to the eldest son through twelve generations till 1685, when George Berkeley, Esq. dying without issue, was succeeded by his brother, John Symes Berkeley, from whose marriage with his second wife, Elizabeth, daughter and co-heir of Walter Norborna, of Calne, co. Wilts, Esq. sprung Norborne Berkeley, Esq. and Elizabeth married to Charles Noel, Duke of Beaufort, and mother of the present Duke. Norborne Berkeley, Esq. had the claim allowed him of the Barony of Botetourt, which had long been in abeyance, and was summoned by his Majesty to Parliament as Baron Botetourt by descent. On his death, in 1770, the title became extinct, and his sister Elizabeth, Dutchess Dowager of Beaufort, succeeded to the manor and estate; and on her death, both descended to his Grace Henry, the present Duke of Beaufort, her son.
Stoke house, the manerial seat, was built originally in the reign of Queen Elizabeth, by Sir Richard Berkeley, and being much injured during the great rebellion, the present mansion was partly rebuilt, and entirely repaired and decorated by the late Lord Botetourt about 1760, and it is recorded in honour of his Lordship, that the motto placed in the front (mihivobisque) perfectly accorded with the amiable disposition and acknowledged character of the noble proprietor. The eminence on which the building. is erected gives it a peculiar grandeur, and nature has been unusually fortunate in the assistance she has derived from art, in embellishing the local beauties of the situation.
HAMLETS. 1. Great Stoke, in which the house is situated. 2. Little Stoke. 3. Harris or Kerry Stoke. The whole parish is the property of the Duke.
No freeholder voted in 1776.
Population, 200—283—281. Houses inhabited, 39.
The benefice is in the deanery and diocese of Bristol, but archdeaconry of Gloucester, a vicarage, anciently appropriated to Little Malvern, co Worcest. for which John Giffard held the advowson in trust. The patronage is now with the manor, and James Hammond Foxcroft, A. M. is incumbent.
The church, dedicated to St. Michael, consists of a nave and north aisle, separated by two fluted pillars, and as many pilasters, with capitals. The interior is neat and uniform. The tower is finished with battlements and pinnacles, and the porch ornamented with elegant tabernacle work.
In P. N. tax. the church of Stoke Giffard, 10/.
In the King's books (discharged) 6/.

Description: OS map evidence shows that a brickworks was established in this area by 1902 when it was in the process of being linked to the railway by a branch line it was still in operation in 1915 but by the mid 1930s most of the original buildings had disappeared to be replaced by a depot. A number of later buildings dating from the 30s and 40s, together with more recent buildings stand on the site today (1999).
