    From Complete Peerage V:87-8:

    "Sir Giles de Erdington, of Erdington, Shawbury, Corfe Mullen, and Barrow-on-Soar, son and heir. On 20 June 1343 he received a pardon for having acquired without licence the manor of Shawbury from his father, and on 11 July 1345 a pardon for not having taken up knighthood by the Feast of St. Lawrence last past, pursuant to the proclamation. He was on the King's service in Flanders in the retinue of Sir John de Montgomery in 1346, but returned to England before 20 January 1346/7, owing to severe illness. On 1 December 1352 he obtained an exemption for life from being put on assizes, juries, &c., and from being appointed mayor, sheriff, escheator, &c., against his will.

    "He married Elizabeth, younger daughter and coheir of William de Tolthorpe, of Tolthorpe, Rutland, by Alice, daughter of Sir Ralph de Normanville, of Empingham in that county. He was living 10 June 1359. His widow died 26 May 1375."

    From: 'Knossington', A History of the County of Leicestershire: Volume 5: Gartree Hundred (1964), pp. 187-193:

    KNOSSINGTON

    "Knossington lies on the borders of Rutland, nine miles south-east of Melton Mowbray and four miles west of Oakham. The ancient parish consisted of 1,469 a. and belonged to a detached part of the hundred of Gartree, lying north-east of the main area. In 1930 the benefices of Knossington and Cold Overton (Framland hundred) were united, and in 1936 the new ecclesiastical parish became the present civil parish of Knossington, 3,198 a. in area.

    "In 1228 Ralph de Nowers was stated to hold the manor of Robert de Tatershall. The Nowers family remained the tenants in demesne until at least 1308, at Robert de Tatershall's death. In 1319 William and Alice Playz sold the manor to Thomas de Tolthorp and his wife Alice, and although the Nowers family continued to hold land in the parish until later in the 14th century, it seems probable that the manor passed from their ownership between 1308 and 1319. Thomas Tolthorp's daughter Elizabeth married Giles de Erdington, the owner of a manor at Barrow on Soar, and the manor descended in this family, probably until the death of Sir Thomas de Erdington in 1467."

    LITTLE CASTERTON, Tolethorpe Manor,

    The subtenant of Tolethorpe at the time of the Domesday Survey (1086) was Robert who, according to Blore, was ancestor of the Tolethorpe family. His son John had a son Robert living in 1166. Robert's son Thomas de 'Tolestorp' in 1196 paid scutage due from his overlord Ralph de Somery in Rutland. He married Juliana, daughter of William de Freney, and was dealing with lands in Tolethorpe in 1220. Robert de 'Tollethorpe' his son married Alice, daughter of Robert L'Abbe, and in 1235 held a third part of a knight's fee in Rutland. In 1263 he obtained the right to a free fishery in the Gwash (Wesse) from Tolethorpe to the old bridge at Ryhall, from Hugh le Despenser. Thomas son of Robert de Tolethorpe married Maud, daughter of Brice Daneys, and held a knight's fee of Roger de Somery, in Tolethorpe in 1272, which William de Tolethorpe his son held in 1291.

    William de Tolethorpe married Alice, daughter of Ralph de Normanville of Empingham, and was holding in 1303 and 1305. He had two daughters, Maud, wife of Nicholas de Burton of Stamford, and Elizabeth, wife of Giles de Erdington, and settled the manor of Tolethorpe before 1316 on Nicholas and Maud but a little later it was reconveyed to him. He was holding the Tolethorpe fee of the Somerys in 1323, but died shortly afterwards. During the disturbed conditions of the country in the reign of Edward II, John Hakluyt, keeper of the Forest of Rutland, and his servants, were attacked at Liddington in 1318 by a great concourse of persons including William son of Robert de Tolethorpe, Robert son of John de Tolethorpe, 'mouner' and William his brother, the elder, and William his brother, the younger. In 1321 a commission was issued for their trial, but the result does not appear.

    Notes:

    Post to SGM, 26 Aug 2007, by Alan Grey:

    To this could be added the Maud who married Thomas de Tolethorpe (died c. 1290). She is said to have been the daughter of Brice Daneys [VCH Rutland, Vol. 2, p. 238] but I have not seen a primary source for the statement.

    The chronology of the Tolethorpe family would indicate to me that if Maud was of the Daneys family, then she was the sister, rather than daughter, of Brice. Her son William de Tolethorpe was in possession of the knight's fee in Tolethorpe in 1291 (i.e., born before 1270),and so Maud was born before (probably several years before) 1255, I suppose. For his part, Brice cannot have been born much before 1250 if he flourished from 1272, but lived until after 1318/21, especially since he was the great-grandson of a man whose brothers still flourished in the 1240s and whose children (Brice's grandfather's generation) were born in the 1230s (as per your post). Thus, Brice cannot be Maud's father, but perhaps he could be a brother.

    Children:
    1. 6. William de Tolethorpe was born before 1270 in Tolethorpe Manor, Little Casterton, Rutland, England; died after 1323.

  7. 14.  Ralph de Normanville was born in in of Empingham, Rutland, England (son of Ralph de Normanville and Galiena).
