  • Notes 
    • The village of Maulds Meaburn in Cumbria is named for her. According to a plaque in nearby King's Meaburn, dated 2000, the villages originally made up the manor of Meaburn. After her brother Hugh de Morville's support for the rebellion of 1173, his lands were confiscated by Henry II, who kept the part now called King's Meaburn and granted the other part to Maud, thus the name.

      Accounts on various local-history sites vary from this. The Wikipedia pages for both Maulds Meaburn and King's Meaburn give a different version, in which Henry II granted Maud and Hugh their respective portions before Hugh rebelled. Other accounts appear to connect the separation of the two portions to Hugh's part in the murder of Becket, which does not seem to have been the case; see the footnote from K. J. Stringer quoted at the entry for Hugh. At any rate, it's clear that the village is named for this Maud de Morville.
