m HAWISE, daughter of ---. Henry I King of England granted "totam dotem suam…Sceldedenam et Herleiam et dominicum managium de Wincestr extra portam civitatis" to "Hadewise uxori Willelmi Malduit" by charter dated to [1102/05].

While William was the Domesday lord of Porchester he attested no charters but he is said by Henry II in 1153 to have been chamberlain of the treasury (exchequer) and to have passed the office to his son Robert Mauduit. Robert died in the White Ship disaster in 1120.

• Manorial Estate: Shalden Manor, Shalden, Alton, Hampshire, GB. 3 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.
The manor was apparently held by the Mauduits of Hartley Mauduit in demesne until near the end of the 12th century, when William Mauduit of Hanslope gave this manor to his brother Robert Mauduit of Warminster to be held of William and his heirs for the service of half a knight's fee. Robert Mauduit died in 1191, and his son and successor Thomas was holding the manor in 1235-6. He died in 1244, and was succeeded by his son William. Thomas the successor of William left a son and heir Warin, a minor, whose custody was assigned by Henry III to his brother Richard, Earl of Cornwall. From Warin some interest in the manor seems to have passed on his death in 1299-1300 to his son Thomas, for he granted a virgate of land at Shalden to Walter Stoner his freeman for his homage and services. Before this time, however, the manor seems to have passed to Richard, Earl of Cornwall, for he obtained from Henry III a grant of free warren there, and on his death in 1272 the manor descended to his son Edmund.
