      Victoria History of Warwickshire page 135:-

      In 1086 MORTON, which had formerly been held by Grimuif, was held as 2 hides by Hugh from Robert de Staffbrd.6 The overlordship continued in the hands of the Staffords until at least 1403 but in 1560 the manor was said to be held of Sir Edward Aston.

      Although direct evidence is lacking, the manor seems to have come to Robert son of Odo of Loxley in the sixth century. His co-heirs were three daughters, who married respectively Peter de Mora, William Trussell, and William Bagot. Peter's grandson and namesake gave the advowson of Morton church, with land here, to Kenilworth Priory, and the descendants of Trussell and Bagot each held a manor, distinguished from about 1300 as MORTON BAGOT. Robert Bagot occurs in 1220 as buying 5 acres in Morton, and was holding half a knight's fee here jointly with William Trussell from Robert de Stafford in 1242.

      The Bagots apparently held the manor until 1296, when William Bagot the younger conveyed it to Roger de Conyngesby and Joan his wife, with the reversion of land held for life by Henry Bagot. In 1303 Roger de Conyngesby was granted free warren in his demesne lands of Morton Bagot. In 1316 Morton Bagot, with the hamlets of Spernall, Offord, and others were held by William Trussell, Roger de Conyngesby, and Thomas Durvassall. To a subsidy of 1327, John Trussell was assessed for land here at 4s 51/2d ., Edmund Trussell at 3s. 4d., and John Conyngesby at 4s 51/2d.16 This John son of Roger disputed with the Prior and Convent of Kenilworth the patronage of Morton Bagot church in 1333, was a commissioner to administer the Statute of Labourers some twenty years later and in 1365 William son of John Conyngesby of Morton Bagot occurs in connexion with lands in Ullenhall. William had no issue and the manor passed through his sister to her granddaughter Alice, the wife of Richard Archer, who in 1436 made a settlement of the manor and advowson on herself and her heirs. Alice died in 1461 without issue, and her cousin, Thomas Conyngesby, claimed the manor as heir, but the feoffees said that at the request of Alice they had released the manor to Richard Archer to be sold and the money used for masses for the souls of Richard and Alice and their ancestors. They also claimed that Thomas was no cousin of Alice, since his great-grandfather Thomas was the bastard son of William, and that William had no such brother John, now claimed to be great-grand-father of Alice. Thomas evidently established his claim, but early in the 16th century his descendant William was suing the Archers over the detention of the deeds of the manor. In 1536 the manor was conveyed from Humphrey Conyngesby to Richard Conyngesby for life, and then to Richard's eldest son, Humphrey, for life, with reversion to the sons of the elder Humphrey The latter's son John died in 1567, and his son Humphrey in 1593 conveyed the manor to Nicholas Conyngesby. The last member of the family to hold the manor seems to have been Thomas Coningsby, who in 1629 sold it to Richard Butler and William Gibbons. The subsequent descent is obscure. It seems to have passed from William Hichinson and Lettice his wife to John Tumbrell in 1676. Andrew Archer occurs as lord of the manor in 1719 and 1721. Probably the estate subsequently became merged in the second manor.
