William de Houghton

  • Marriage (1): Unknown
  • Died: After 1130


Occupation: Chamberlain of Henry I.

Manorial Estate, 1130, Little Houghton Manor, Northampton, Northamptonshire, NN7, GB. 1 ...but there is nothing to connect him with William de Houghton who in the 12th century held 3 hides in the two places. William de Houghton held lands in other counties and was chamberlain of Henry I. In 1130 he paid 200 in Northamptonshire and Leicestershire for the widow and land of Edward of Salisbury, to the use of his son Payn de Houghton, 'le chamberlayne', who also made a payment. Payn presented to the church and was probably dead by 1155. By his wife Adeliz de Raimes he had a daughter Maud de Houghton, called his heir. He had another daughter Emma, not called his heir; and though she shared his inheritance she and her descendants held of Maud and her heirs.

William married.
