  • Note:
    The following is copied from the website "Brooksby, The Old Family", www.brooksby.org/family/old-family.html:

    William (d. 1416) had Shoby and Saxelby as his share of the inheritance. He was an important man in more than Leicestershire, being Marshall of the Kings Hall in 1401, and therefore awarded a yearly pension of 40 marks. He also married shrewdly, Joan de Saxulby, her father's heir, and so added neighbouring Saxelby to his holdings.

    Note: By Shoby is meant Shouldby or Siwoldby, a tiny hamlet (I can't even find it on the map) whose church was combined with another village named Asfordby. All of these, including Saxelby, are near Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire. Brooksby is within 5 miles, which would appear to be where the family got its name.
