  • Notes 
    • According to The Blackmans of Knight's Creek (citation details below), Robert de Grey "was granted Rotherfield by his brother Walter de Grey, archbishop of York."

      More detail in this 2 Dec 2010 John Watson post to SGM:

      In 1086 Rotherfield Greys was held by Anketil de Grey under William FitzOsbern (d. 1071). The mesne tenancy of Rotherfield Greys descended presumably through Anketil's son Richard to his grandson Robert, who held the manor in 1166 and who apparently died childless. Thereafter the manor passed to Robert's nephew John (d. by 1192), his brother Anketil's son. John's daughter and heir Eve married the royal judge Ralph Murdac, who was lord in 1192 but whose lands were forfeited in 1194 for rebellion. Rotherfield Greys was restored to Eve and her second husband, Andrew de Beauchamp, probably before 1200. Although not without heirs, before 1240 and possibly as early as 1215 Eve gave the manor to her kinsman Walter de Grey, archbishop of York, who settled it on his brother Robert de Grey.
