  • Notes 
    • "[A]mong the approximately 170 tenants-in-chief or barons listed in Domesday Book (1086) holding directly of the king, with lands in cos. Bedford, Northampton, Hertford, and Buckingham. He had been preceded in most of his lands by Levenot, an English thegn of Edward the Confessor. He retained in demesne the manors of Wahull and Langford, co. Bedford, and Pateshull, co. Northants. He established the seat of his barony at Wahull, where a wooden motte-and-bailey castle was constructed, later to be replaced by one of stone. The barony provided a yearly income of about £98 and was probably assessed for the service of thirty knights." [Charles M. Hansen, citation details below.]
