  • Notes 
    • From: 'Parishes: Tickencote', A History of the County of Rutland: Volume 2 (1935), pp. 275-281:


      The tenant holding at all events a part of the manor of the Grimbalds was Henry, son of Richard de Tickencote, who was granted 6 bovates of land here for a fifth of a fee. Henry de Tickencote had licence to export bread in 1224. Before 1234, however, the manor had passed to William le Daneys, who, with his overlord Robert Grimbald, consented to the presentation to the church of Tickencote by the abbot of Owston (co. Leic.). William had married as his second wife Mabel, who was apparently heiress of the Tickencotes, as on the death of William in 1250 his widow Mabel had the custody of the manor until the majority of the heir, John, which occurred in 1253. John in that year had seisin of the manor, which had been in the king's hands on account of the debt owing from William de Plessetis, who had a lien on the manor from William le Daneys, saving the dower of Mabel. John le Daneys seems to have died without issue before 1263, when lands in Tickencote were settled on Mabel for life with reversion to William, son of Richard le Daneys, brother of Mabel's husband William. William, son of William son of Richard, had a son Brice le Daneys, who with Isabel his wife was holding lands in Tickencote in 1287. Brice held aquarter of a fee and Hugh de Bussey half a fee there in 1305. Before 1311, however, Brice had acquired the manor, which he settled in that year on himself and Joan, probably his second wife. Brice was knight of the shire for Rutland in 1312 and took a prominent part in the affairs of the county. In the same year he was involved in a suit against Grimbald, son of Grimbald Pauncefort, heir of Brice's cousin, Ella le Daneys, as to lands in Hildesham. Brice died before 1344, when Oger Daveys (Daneys) released to his brother Roland all claim to the manor of Tickencote and all other lands which formerly belonged to Brice in Empingham.
