(5) Otho Champernoun, M

A minor in July 1377, he was holding North Tawton as one knight's fee and called Oto son of Richard Chambernoun 14 Aug 1377 (Cal. Close Rolls, 1377-81, p. 13). He was exempted for life from all public offices 18 Oct 1390 (Cal. Pat. Rolls, 1381-5, p. 313), 17 Aug 1393 (Cal. Pat. Rolls, 1391-6, p. 324) and 10 Feb 1402 (Cal. Pat. Rolls, 1401-5, p. 43); license granted to Otto Chambernoun, William Gilbert and Richard Gilbert to receive 100 pilgrims in their ship la Charite and to ship them to Santiago to pay their vows and to bring them back, 8 May 1394 (Cal. Pat. Rolls, 1391-6, p. 408). As Lord of Clyst Hydon, he presented there to the church in June 1399 and March 1408/9 (Stafford, p. 156). Ordered to be arrested, 11 Feb 1407 (Cal. Pat. Rolls, 1405-8, p. 419), the problem appears to have been resolved in his favor as on 20 Dec 1407 he was appointed to a commission to inquire what lands Philip Courtenay, chivalier, deceased, held in Devonshire and its value (Cal. Pat. Rolls, 1405-8, p. 419). By charter of 9 June 1408, he and Agnes, his wife, were demised the manor and hundred of North Tawton (IPM of Otho).
He died 2 Jan 1422/3. Having left no issue, his IPM names as his heirs the descendants of his three aunts, Margaret, Elizabeth and Joan, as well as his cousin, Alexander Champernoun (IPM 1 Hen VI) and other relatives.
He was married to Agnes Hydon, who died 10 Jan 1430/1 (IPM 9 Hen. VI, file 49 (41)). Through his wife, Otho Champernoun came into possession of Clyst Hydon. Agnes may have been the daughter of the Richard de Hydon who presented to the rectory in 1362 (Grandisson, p. 1475). Agnes, herself, presented to Clyst Hydon in Feb 1427/8 and July 1430 (Lacy, p. 109, 127)
