    Dear Doug,

    I have a question. Do you have documentation showing Westbury, co. Wiltshire as the maritagium of Eve, wife of Henry de Tracy and Thomas de London?

    I am asking because Eugenia FitzWarin, daughter of Havise Dinan [died 1218] and Fulk FitzWarin [died aft 1194] received a large piece of land in Westbury. This is stated in Halstead and Eugenia was the wife of Thomas Mauduit of Warminster, co. Wiltshire. This is the only husband I have for her and Thomas Mauduit died aft. July 28, 1244. They had only one known child a son William Mauduit whose son Thomas upon his father's [William's] death ca. April 4, 1264, was the ward of Warin Bassingburne.

    Genealogical Proofs of the House of Maudit, A succinct Genealogy of the House of Maudit by Robert Halstead, London, 1685:

    Page 131:

    Carta Fulconis filii Warrini
    Omnibus ad quos praesens Scriptum pervenerit, Fulco filius Warrini Salutem. Noverit universitas vestra, nos concessisse & confirmasse Eudoni filio Warrini fratri nostro terram de Westbury cum pertinentiis, quam Havisia de Dinat mater nostra ei dedit & concessit, sicut in carta sua continetur, quam idem Eudo habet de dicta Havisia matre nostra. Et ut haec concessio & confirmatio nostra rata & inconcussa permaneat, eam praefenti scripto, Sigilli nostri appositione roboravi. Hic testibus, Willielmo Longespe Comite de Salisburia, Willielmo Mareschall filio Willielmi Mareschall Comite de Pembroc, Reginaldo de Albo Monasterio, Willielmo Talebot, Willielmo Frasso, Henrico filio Ricardi.....Ricardo Sumard, Galfrido de Sancto Leodegario, Mano filio Warrini, Ricardo Talebot, Thoma Corbet, Willielmo Panton, Thomas Wilkes, & Multis aliis. Seals intact.

    Carta Eudoni filiis Warrini
    Sciant praesentes & futuri, quod ego Eudo filius Warrini dedi & concessi & hac praesenti carta mea confirmavi Eugeniae de Mauduit sorori meae, pro homagio & servitio suo, totam terram meam de Westbury & de Lye cum omnibus pertinentiis suis in Villa de Westbury & Lye, & extra, sine ullo retinemento meo vel haeredum meorum, habendam & tenendam sibi & haeredibus suis, vel cui assignare voluerit, loco religioso vel alibi, de me & haeredibus meis in perpetuum, libere, quiete, & pacifice, faciendo inde mihi & haeredibus meis, ipsa & haeredes sui vel eius assignati, servitium quod ad dictam terram pertinet, pro omni consuetudine & demanda. Pro hac autem donatione & concessione dedit mihi dicta Eugenia prae manibus ducentas & quatuor viginti marcas. Et ut haec mea donatio & concessio rata & inconcussa permaneat, huic scripto sigillum meum apposui hic testibus, Fulcone filio Warrini, Reginaldo de Albo Monasterio, Henrico de Tracy, Waltero de Pavely, Willielmo de Pipard, Philippo Bret, Hugone de Shuggford, Willielmo de Hodenet, Philippo Marmion, Magistro Nicolao & multis aliis. Seal intact.

    These charters show that Westbury originally belonged to Havise de Dinan the mother of Fulk, Eudo and Eugenia. Fulk was the eldest son and heir so he gave these lands to his younger brother Eudo, who as the second charter shows bestowed them on Eugenia, his sister who was the wife of Thomas Mauduit at the time of the grant to her.

    Best regards,

    Dear Doug,

    VCH Vol. VIII for the county of Wiltshire is online and I am citing from that for ease of use:

    The 30 librates of land granted by the Empress Maud to William Defuble must have passed into the hands of Henry II, who granted land, still reckoned at 30 librates in 1274, to Joce de Dinan. Joce died c. 1166 leaving two daughters. One, Sybil, married Hugh Plucknet, and received a half share of the inheritance. Of this, five librates already formed half of the manor of Westbury Priory. The remainder had been subinfeudated to the Pavely family, lords of the capital manor, by 1210- 12, when it was held by Ralph de Beauchamp, who had the wardship of the heir. In 1242-3 it was held as ½ fee by Walter Pavely of William Plucknet. In 1280 Reynold Pavely held the land of Jocelin Plucknet and it was said to be worth £10. No more is heard of the Plucknet overlordship, and the land was probably merged into the Pavely inheritance.

    Hawise, Joce de Dinan's other daughter, married Fulk FitzWarin (d. c. 1198). Her share of the inheritance also included the overlordship of half the manor of Westbury Priory. She was still living in 1226; before her death she is said to have given the part of Westbury which she held herself to her son Fulk. By c. 1219 he had given the land which his mother gave him to his brother Eudo, who soon after gave it to their sister Eugenia. She married William Mauduit, lord of Warminster c. 1244-64, and took her Westbury property into that family, from which it was called the manor of WESTBURY MAUDUITS. A grant of free warren in his demesne lands made in 1317 to Thomas Mauduit described these as lying in Westbury, Westbury Leigh, and Chalcot. In 1562 Chalcot alone was described as a manor. But no evidence of any independent manorial organization has been found and Chalcot was probably only a part of the Mauduit lands in Westbury. These lands followed the same descent as Warminster until 1585 when George Tuchet, Lord Audley (d. 1617), sold them to the brothers Henry and Nicholas Phipps.

    In 1274 it was said that the land given by the Empress Maud to William Defuble amounted to 30 librates. The descent of these has been described above; 10 formed the holding of the Prior of Le Pré and 10 that of the Mauduit family, and the remaining 10 seem to have been merged into the capital manor. It appears, however, that Defuble's holding was larger than the 30 librates assigned to it in 1274, and in 1210-12 it was definitely said to amount to 50 librates. Of this, part was clearly the land held by the heirs of Joce de Dinan, to whom Defuble's land had been regranted by Henry II. The remainder, presumably 20 librates, was held by Ralph de Lanvaley and William de Lanvaley. This family was associated with a holding of Joce de Dinan at Lambourn (Berks.) and he may have given land at Westbury to it before his death. The first member of the family certainly holding land here was Thomas de Lanvaley, whose estate at Leigh was in the hands of the sheriff in 1190. His relationship to the later members of the family is not known, but he evidently was related to the family that held land at Lambourn, and the honor of Walkern (Herts.). William de Lanvaley of that family died c. 1215, leaving a daughter and heir Hawise, who married John de Burgh (d. 1275). He was overlord of land at Westbury in 1274, the last time the overlordship of the Lanvaley estates is mentioned.

    The fragmentation of those estates by subinfeudation began in 1204 with the gift of land at Leigh from Ralph de Lanvaley to the priory of Monkton Farleigh, in return for a life pension of 2 marks. This formed the largest part of the manor of LEIGH PRIORS. In 1242-3 it was said to be held in chief, and in 1274 it was reckoned at ½ fee. Subsequent acquisitions show the priory following a policy of augmenting and consolidating its property in Westbury Leigh. In 1226 Henry III confirmed among the other possessions of the house in Westbury, half the vill of Westbury Leigh and a tenement (mansura) there. In 1249 the prior exchanged with William and Eve Mauduit the wood of Holt for 15 a. in Westbury Leigh next to the wood which Walter of Brookway held. Another exchange was made by the prior in 1285 with Stephen the tanner of land in 'Buricrofta' and 'Cumputte' in Westbury Leigh for other land in the same place. More land was acquired in Leigh and Westbury in 1320-1 by an exchange with Walter Pavely. In 1294 the Westbury Leigh estate along with the priory's other possessions was temporarily taken into the king's hands. In 1331 the manor was leased to John Bradford, parson of the church at Bishopstrow, and Thomas de Croume for their lives. In 1368 licence was granted for John Mareys and Thomas Jordan to grant some 50 a., which they held of the Prior of Farleigh in Westbury Leigh, to the Bonhommes of Edington. The manor, then leased out, was among the property of Monkton Farleigh when the priory was dissolved in 1536.

    In 1545 the manor, with its capital messuage, and the lands leased with it to John Whatley, Leigh Common, and all appurtenances were conveyed to John Adlam, clothier, of Westbury, who also received other rents due to the priory from lands in Westbury. John died seised of the manor in the same year leaving as his heirs his daughters Edith, wife of John Lambe, and Alice, wife of Robert Cogswell. Edith married secondly John Westwell, who, after Edith's death in 1577, held the manor for life. It then passed to John Lambe, Edith's son by her first marriage. John Lambe died in 1615 holding half the manor and was succeeded by his son, John. This John sold his half of the manor to Sir James Ley (cr. Earl of Marlborough 1626) in 1615. The other half, which passed on the death of Alice Cogswell in 1606 to her grandson, Roger, had been sold by him to Sir James Ley in 1611. Ley thus acquired the entire manor of Leigh Priors, which thenceforth followed the same descent as the capital manor.

    The half of the township of Leigh which remained after the grant to the priory of Monkton Farleigh in 1204 was by 1242-3 divided into two parts, each reckoned at ? fee. Robert de Maners held one directly of the heirs of William de Lanvaley, but the other had been three times subinfeudated, and was held by Eve de Bassingburn of Eve de Tracy of Fulk FitzWarin of the heirs of de Lanvaley. Eve de Bassingburn had acquired her part of Eve de Tracy in 1241. By 1274 the two parts had been united, for John de Maners held ¼ fee directly of the tenant-in-chief. John probably subinfeudated it before the Statute of 1290. By 1316 it was held by John Rous; at his death in 1330 Rous was said to hold it jointly with his wife Ela of Robert de Maners by the gift of John of Lavington. It descended in the Rous family in the same way as the manor of Baynton in Edington to John Rous, who was holding it in 1412.

    VCH is in error as Eugenia FitzWarin was not the wife of William Mauduit. Eugenia would have been born before 1198 when Fulk FitzWarin died making it very unlikely that she would have married William Mauduit and the given birth to the son and heir Thomas Mauduit [born ca. 1248 - died 1271 on crusade with Prince Edward]. Halstead is correct in his placing of Eugenia as the wife of Thomas Mauduit that died in 1244 and she was the mother of William Mauduit. The second passage shows that William Mauduit was married to an Eve, but she is unknown. William Mauduit would have inherited Westbury Mauduits from his mother.

    The section also shows that Fulk FitzWarin was infeudated by the Lanvaley heirs and he subinfeudated Eve de Tracy who in 1241 subinfeudated Eve de Bassingburn. If Eve de Tracy were his daughter, then this would make Eugenia FitzWarin and Eve FitzWarin sisters.

    As Thomas Mauduit [son of William Mauduit and Eve] married Joan Bassingburn this would make them related as they both descended from Fulk FitzWarin. Warin Mauduit [1269-1300], son and heir of Thomas Mauduit and Joan Bassingburn, was placed in the wardship of Warin Bassingburn upon his father's death.

    I will check the citation from the Close Rolls. Thank you for presenting this so this portion of the FitzWarin ancestry can be sorted out.

    Best regards,
    MichaelAnne

    Dear Doug,

    There is an error in my last posting. Warin Bassinburn had the wardship of Thomas Mauduit, son of William Mauduit by his wife Eve. Warin Bassingburn married Thomas to his daughter Joan Bassingburn and their son was Warin Mauduit [1269-1300]. This is cited in the Close Rolls of Henry III, 1261-1264, pp. 339-340.
