• Manorial Estate: 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: Shalden Manor, Shalden, Alton, Hampshire, GB. 5 The manor of SHALDEN was held at the time of the Domesday Survey by William Mauduit; formerly it had been held by four freemen of King Edward the Confessor as an alod. The overlordship of the manor passed to the descendants of William Mauduit in the same way as the manor of Hartley Mauduit, of which Shalden was held.
• Manorial Estate: Easton Manor, Easton Mauduit, Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, NN29, GB. 6 Winemar [the Fleming, otherwise Winemar de Hamslape], who was returned in the Survey as holding of the Countess Judith 1 virgate of land in Bozeat, was holding in chief at the same time 2 hides and 3 virgates in a place unnamed in the hundred of Higham. (fn. 15) This was presumably EASTON, since his successor Michael de Hamslape was entered in the Northampton Survey as holding 3½ hides and 1 great virgate in Easton and Strixton. (fn. 16) The 2 hides and 3 virgates recorded in 1086 had been held before the Conquest by six freemen, one of whom was called Osgot, and his part of the land had been claimed by the Countess Judith. The lands held in Easton by Michael de Hamslape evidently passed to William Mauduit, the King's Chamberlain, by his marriage with Maud daughter of Michael, as in 1242 land in Easton was held in chief of the king by William Mauduit, (fn. 17) of whom William de Nowers was holding 3 parts of a fee in Easton, while Robert Wolf, or 'Lupus', was holding of him half a fee in Esse [Ashby] and Easton. Another account gives a fee in Easton to William de Nowers, and half a fee in Ashby to Robert Wolf. (fn. 18) This fee was held of the Mauduits until at the death of William Mauduit, s.p., in 1267, it passed with the earldom to William de Beauchamp, the younger, son of William Mauduit's sister Isabel, deceased, the wife of William de Beauchamp, the elder. (fn. 19) It was held by the Beauchamps, Earls of Warwick, until early in the 15th century, as of their manor of Hanslope.
