Alice de Tubney

  • Marriage (1): Arnold [IV] de Bois

   Another name for Alice was Alice de Tabbeneye.


Manorial Estate: Tubney Manor, Abingdon, Oxfordshire, OX13, GB. 1 TUBNEY seems to have been included in the lands of Marcham (q.v.) granted in 965 by King Edgar to Abingdon Abbey; in 1086 Rainbald held Tubney of that house, its Saxon tenants having been Norman and Aluric, and the overlordship remained in the abbey's possession.

Rainbald, the under-tenant in 1086, was son-in-law of Abbot Reynold and made one of his own sons, Adelelm, a monk at Abingdon. He incurred the ill-will of William II, who fined him 50. The Abbot of Abingdon and others became Rainbald's sureties and on Rainbald flying the country the abbot seized his lands in order to meet the payment. Rainbald, however, returned and recovered his demesnes. John de Tubney, who held a knight's fee of Abingdon Abbey in 1166, and Richard his son are mentioned during the reign of Henry II. Henry de Tubney occurs with Joan his wife in 1198-9 ; he may be identical with the Henry de Tubney who was living in 1224-5 and early in the reign of Henry III held a knight's fee of Abingdon Abbey in Tubney, Frilford and Uffington.

Henry de Tubney left a daughter and heir Alice who married Arnold de Bois, a member of a Warwickshire family. Arnold de Bois died seised in 1277, leaving a son and heir John, who, dying childless, was succeeded by his brother Master William de Bois. He in February 1295-6 received licence to settle a moiety of the manor on himself for life with remainder to his niece Maud and her husband William la Zouche, their issue, and the heirs of Maud. They must have enfeoffed the Corbets of Hadley in Shropshire for in 1316 Roger Corbet was lord.

Alice married Arnold [IV] de Bois, son of Arnold [III] de Bois and Unknown. (Arnold [IV] de Bois died on 25 Mar 1277 2.)
