Oxley Manor

near Wolverhampton, Staffordshire - Staveley-Hill family


"Oxley Manor is situated in the parish of Bushbury, at a distance of two miles from Wolverhampton. For the annals of Oxley Manor, the old writings describe to us how at the conquest it fell into the hands of some Norman of whom all remembrance soon passed away, Fitz Ausculpk. It then passed through succeeding owners, William de Overton, William Marnham, Edmund Low, Robert Grey (son of Lord Grey de Ruthyn), and Lord Dudley, before being passed to James Leveson in the time of Henry the Eighth.

His grandson, Sir Richard Leveson, was the celebrated Vice-Admiral under Queen Elizabeth, who was knighted after the taking of Cadiz in 1596. And then, through one of two hands, Oxley Manor passed to Mr Huskisson in the reign of George the Second, whose son, William, sold it to Mr James Hordern, a banker in Wolverhampton. On his death in 1825, it passed to his son, Alexander Hordern, and under his will to his nephew, Alexander Stavely-Hill."
