The Paulet family was resident at Freefolk.
Sir Fulke Greville's principal residence was at Beauchamp Court, near Alcester, Warwickshire. Paulet and Jervoise may have stopped at Beauchamp Court on their way to Chelmarsh, Shropshire, where Jervoise had extensive lands. Quatt is a village just over a mile east of Chelmarsh. Glazeley is a village just west of Chelmarsh.

Sir Richard Paulet (c 1558–1614)
was the grandnephew of William Paulet (1474/5?–1572), first marquess of
Winchester and longtime lord
treasurer under three Tudor monarchs. Richard Paulet inherited estates
at Herriard, south of Basingstoke, and Freefolk, near Whitchurch. He served multiple times
as sheriff of Hampshire and in parliament for Whitchurch.
Thomas Jervoise became Paulet's ward in
1601, and eventually his adopted heir and son-in-law. For further
details see the section on Hampshire families in Historical Background.
