Parochial antiquities attempted in the history of Ambrosden Vol. 2: In the year 1434 John Ormesby being enfeoffed by Cicely, the late wife of John Rede, in the manor of Standelf, in the parish of Pirton, com Oxon, conveyed it by a deed to Edmund Rede. //P// The said Robert James and Catharine had issue one only daughter Christina before this time married to Edmund Rede of Borstall son of John Rede and Cecily his wife (which Cecily was afterward wife and relict of Sir Thomas Sakevile knight) which Edmund Rede did now obtain a grant from Robert Ponynges knight, William Lisle knight, Thomas Chaucer esquire, and other trustees of a certain field called Horshole lying under a wood called Bechwode in the parish of Chakenden, com Oxon with advowson of the said church.

Survey of the antiquities of the city of Oxford: Patronage of the Austin Friary. At the first foundation of their covent they had but a small oratory but, by the benevolence of the aforementioned Sir John Handlo, was much increased with divers additions. Wherin as I have learned his body was buried under a fair monument. Who being accounted a founder caused his heires to challenge the patronage of this place and more especially one Edmund Rede of Borstall com Bucks esquire, who being desirous to be a benefactor to this place, did lay claime to the patronag also therof. Which was after this manner first he alledged that the said Sir John Handlo had a son named Sir Richard Handlo, knight, from whome descended lineally a daughter called Elizabeth de la Pole and from her another heiress named Katherine James from her also came Christina Rede, mother to this Edmund Rede father to William Rede his first begotten son. Which, being proved, he did with licence from the king become a benefactor and the cheif patron of this place. Upon which account also the priour and the covent with license from John Cap grave their Provinciall did in the year 1456 confirme to him and his son William Rede severall chambers between their church and refectory with a garden plott lying before it toward the street to have free entrance and lodge or inhabite there when they pleas at their coming to Oxon.
