I think the records are in Battle Abby, but you are right they are probably written in Latin. Because of the fact that the property was previously owned by Jean de Bretagne, and our de Wanebournes only started to appear about the time the property changed hands, It looks like we are back as far as we can go with the "Wenban/Wenebourn name as prior to that they would have been known by a different name.
