• Title: 8th Earl of Warwick (bef 14 Feb 1257- ); Hereditary Chamberlain of the Exchequer. 3
• Manorial Estate, 1257-1267, Barrowden Manor, Barrowden, Oakham, Rutland, LE15, GB. 4 At the time of the Domesday Survey the king held BARROWDEN with its members, Seaton, Thorpe, Morcott, Bisbrooke, Glaston and Luffenham. (fn. 16) Henry I farmed the manor of Barrowden for £20 to William de Albini. (fn. 17) Barrowden seems to have been granted to Maud, queen of Henry I (1100\endash 1118), who gave Barrowden, Luffenham, Seaton and Thorpe to Michael de Hanslope, and they then became part of the Barony of Hanslope (co. Bucks). (fn. 18) Michael left a daughter Maud, who was given in marriage by the king to William Mauduit, son of William Mauduit of the Domesday Survey. (fn. 19) Barrowden was confirmed to William Mauduit, son of William Mauduit and Maud Hanslope his wife, about 1141, (fn. 20) with the soke which Michael de Hanslope had there, and he paid 100 marks of gold as relief. (fn. 21) He received releases from William the chaplain, son of Robert de Hanslope, and Roger son of William de Albini, for all claims which they had by inheritance from their fathers. (fn. 22) He married Isabel daughter of Simon de St. Liz, Earl of Northampton, (fn. 23) and was succeeded about 1196 by his son Robert, (fn. 24) who held Barrowden in 1210\endash 12 by the service of being chamberlain. (fn. 25) Robert and his son William Mauduit both took arms against King John and forfeited their lands. In 1217 both returned to fealty to Henry III, and their lands were restored. (fn. 26) William married Alice daughter of Waleran de Newburgh, Earl of Warwick, and died holding Barrowden in 1256. (fn. 27) He was succeeded by his son William, who became Earl of Warwick in 1263. He married Alice daughter of Gilbert de Segrave, but died without issue in January 1268. (fn. 28) Barrowden then passed to William de Beauchamp the younger, son of his late sister Isabel.

• Manorial Estate, 1257-1267, Hawridge Manor, Hawridge, Chesham, Buckinghamshire, HP5, GB. 5 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)

• Manorial Estate, 1257-1268, Weston Mauduit, Weston-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, GB. 6 In 1086 an estate of 4 hides in Weston which Baldwin had formerly held had come into the hands of Hugh de Grentemaisnil and was held of him by Roger. (fn. 18) Most of Hugh's estates passed to the Earl of Leicester, (fn. 19) but Weston evidently was acquired by the Earl of Warwick. It seems probable that Weston was given by Earl Waleran (1184\endash 1204) with his daughter Alice in marriage to William Mauduit, as at the death of Waleran's grandson Earl Thomas in 1242 WESTON MAUDUIT was held of him as half a knight's fee by William Mauduit. (fn. 20) This William's son William became Earl of Warwick in 1263, and on his death in 1268 it was stated that he had alienated lands worth £15 yearly in Weston. (fn. 21)
