From Harding, vol. II (1847) on page 125:

Hensleigh is in Clare portion and was probably named after Robert Hensleigh, who had lands in Tiverton in Henry the 8th's time, and was held under Henry Courtenay, Marquis of Exeter, who was Lord of the manor. It afterwards became the property of the Burridges, and Samuel Burridge, Esq., held it in 1724; from his descendants it passed into the hands of J. B. Cholwich, Esq., whose mother was a Burridge. He married a sister of the late Sir John Duntze, Bart., and on his death he left this property to his nephew the present Sir John Duntze, Bart.; whose uncle, the late James Duntze, Esq., had a life interest in the house.
