  General Notes:

ISABELLA Basset (-[24 Oct/11 Dec] 1225). "Isabella who was the wife of Robert Mauduit, who is one of the heirs of Thurstan Basset…"made a fine "for having her rightful portion…of lands formerly of Thurstan her father" in the honour of Wallingford, dated 8 Jan 1223. "Thomas de Venuz" made a fine for marrying "Isabella, who was the wife of Robert Mauduit…if she will consent to this", dated 24 Oct 1225. It is not certain that this second marriage took place as Isabella died soon after the date of the document. "William Mauduit" paid homage to the king for "the lands that Isabella Basset, mother of the said William, whose heir he is, held in chief in his bailiwick", dated 11 Dec 1225.

• Manorial Estate, 1223, Hawridge Manor, Hawridge, Chesham, Buckinghamshire, HP5, GB. 3 The manor of HAWRIDGE is not mentioned in the Survey of 1086, and is first referred to in the 13th century, when it was held of the honour of Wallingford, (fn. 5) to which it remained attached as late as 1507. (fn. 6) In 1560, however, it was said to be held in free socage of Sir Francis Knollys as of his manor of Wingrave. (fn. 7)

Hawridge must have been included among the possessions of which Thurstan Basset died seised c. 1223 and passed to his daughter Isabel, widow of Robert Mauduit. (fn. 8) Their son William Mauduit (fn. 9) held here in 1235, (fn. 10) and was succeeded at his death about 1257 by his son Sir William Mauduit, afterwards Earl of Warwick. (fn. 11) On his death without issue about 1268 his estates passed to his nephew and heir William Beauchamp Earl of Warwick, (fn. 12) who in 1284 occupied the position of mesne lord. (fn. 13) This intermediary lordship is last heard of in 1300, when it was held by Guy his son and heir. (fn. 14)

The John Beauchamp who was holding the manor in fee in 1284 (fn. 15) was probably the brother of the ninth Earl of Warwick. (fn. 16)
