In the 13th. century the hamlet of Stillington was part of the extensive estates held by the Amurdiville family, whose head was one of the powerful barons controlling the country throughout this period 'About 1200 Robert de Amundeville granted to Ralph de Hamsterley 2 oxgangs of land in STILLINGTON (Stillyngton, xiii cent.) that had belonged to Robert son of Huchtred. The whole 'manor' was in 1268 acquired by Walter de Merton from Thomas son of Ralph de Amundeville, one of his special friends, and given to Merton College, Oxford, which he founded. ) The college possesses deeds relating to the place from 1200 onwards and court rolls of the manor from 1290 to 1396, but the customs of the manor have not been kept up. (William de Hamsterley, who granted certain lands to John his son, released part at least of his holding to the college in 1290. In 1634 Charles I granted a confirmation of the manor to the warden and scholars of Merton, and the college retains the estate in Stillington.'..
