    LAXTON. LEXINGTON. And MOREHOUSE, Nottinghamshire:

    Tochi before the Norman invasion had a manor in Laxington, which discharged itself to the publick imposition or geld of that time, for three car. The land then being found to be six car. There afterwards Walter the man (or tenant) of Goiffrid de Alselin (whose see king William made it) had one car. 22 vill. seven bord. having five car. five servants, one maid servant, and fourty acres of meadow, pasture wood one leu. long, half a leu. broad. In the Confessours time the value was 9l. in the Conquerours 6l. It had Sok in Schidrington, Wilgebi, Walesbi, Echering, Almentune, Chenaptorpe, Calneston, Besthorpe, and Carleton.

    The fees of this Goisfrid de Alselin were divided early, I suppose in the time of H. 1. or sooner, between Raph de Alselin or Hanselin, and Robert de Calz, (perhaps son of this Walter before-named) which Robert was a witness to the foundation charter of Lenton, made by William Peverell in that kings reign, and had a son 5 Steph. named Walter, whom I take to be father of Robert de Cauz, who sent his certificate to king H. 2. as other barons did, 12 H. 2. which shows that he had fifteen knights fees for which he was to answer the king. Raph de Alselin had twenty five, as in Shelford his chief seat is noted.

    This place was the principal mansion and head of the barony of Robert de Calz, who as Anneis his mother did, gave something to the knights hospitallers of Saint Johns of Hierusalem.

    NOTE: According to the Sherwood Forest website, Robert obtained most of his rights to Laxton through his marriage to Basilia de Normanville (as it seems that Laxton was the seat of the keeper of the Forests of Derby & Nottinghamshire and Basilia's father & grandfather were keepers). It is interesting that the Cauz family and the Alselin/Halselin family also shared land at Shelford (Notts), with the Halselin family taking the larger share, whereas the Cauz family seemed to eventually end up with the larger (maybe entire) share of Laxton.
