The next possessors of Donnington were the Abburburys, who held it for 127 years and derived their name from Adderbury, anciently Eadburbury, a village three miles south of Banbury. The name of both the village and the family was variously spelt, but in the 13th century that in common use was Eadburbury, we find, too, Abbresbury, Apperbury, Alburbury, Adburbury, in ancient records as variations in the name of a place which was originally Eade's burgh or borough. The first of the family of whom I find record is a certain Nigel de Edberbury, who between the years 1267 and 1270 granted a house in Culworth, a village about eight miles from Adderbury, to Adam Roce [Ancient Deeds, P.R.O., vol. i., B 1065]. Another member of the family was Thomas, son of Roger de Abberbury, who some time prior to the passing of the Act of Mortmain in 1279 gave land in Adderbury for the use of the Parish Church. And there can be little doubt that it was this Thomas who in 1289, in consideration of the gift of a sorrel sparrow-hawk, received from Allan de Coupeland the manor of Donnington with its belongings.
