(1) This page has been pieced together from various sources, albeit mainly within VCH, so it is difficult to identify any 'Main Source' other than VCH in toto. Thanks to a contributor (OWC, 25.03.09) for his preparatory work which made this possible.
(2) TCP (Warwick) reports that "The name Mauduit (Maledoctus) is a nickname - The Dunce. It has been confused by both Farrer and Haskins with another nickname, Mauconduit (Malconductus), meaning presumably The Boor". TCP then refers to the list of Contents of 'The Ancestor' which contains the article mentione just below which refers to "Mauduit of Hartley Maudit" which "involves confusion with a 3rd nickname, Maudit (Maledictus), The Accursed."
(3) The first few generations and connection to the Earl of Warwick come from VCH (Buckinghamshire, vol 4, Parishes : Hanslope with Castle Thorpe) with a little support & input at the beginning from an article by J. Horace Round on 'Mauduit of Hartley Mauduit' in 'The Ancestor', Number V, April 1903 (found on www.archive.org).
William Mauduit of Hartley Mauditt, Shalden & Fyfield (Hampshire) (a 1086, Chamberlain of the Exchequer)
m. Hawise or Hadewise
1. Robert Mauduit of Hartley Mauditt (d c1129-30, Chamberlain of the Exchequer)
A. daughter
  m. William de Pont de l'Arche (Chamberlain of the Exchequer)
2. William Mauduit of Hanslope (Buckinghamshire) & Porchester Castle (a 1150, Chamberlain of the Exchequer)
  m1/2. Isabel St. Liz (dau of Simon, Earl of Northampton, sister of Earl Simon)
  m2/1. Maud de Hanslope (dau of Michael de Hanslope of Hanslope)
Round reports that Dugdale was wrong to combine the William who married the heiress of Hanslope with his father, the William who held Hartley Mauditt in 1086. We are concerned that we may have combined 2 different Williams into this one, one father of the other (and possibly Robert) with the first being married to Maud de Hanslope and his son to Isabel St. Liz. However, the dates lead us to suspect that they were the same person. Round reports that Dugdale "although he worked from the cartulary on which this paper is based ... missed the big marriage of this rising family, which indeed seems to be omitted from all its pedigrees", viz. the marriage to Isabel St. Liz. We take that to imply that Isabel was not mother of William's successor as otherwise the connection with the illustrious family of St. Liz would have been more widely recorded.
  A. William Mauduit of Hanslope (d before 1196, Chamberlain of the Exchequer)
  William's wife (and mother of his children) may have been Isabel Glanville. This has yet to be confirmed.

  The following comes from VCH (Hampshire, vol 4, Parishes: Shalden) & VCH (Wiltshire, vol 8, Warminster: Manors). It is possible that this was the Robert who (also) married a sister/coheir of Andrew Giffard of Fonhhill but this has not been confirmed.

  The following comes from TCP (Mauduit) which reports that "The founder of the family of Mauduit of Somerford Mauduit is conjectured to have been Robert, younger son of Robert Mauduit of Warminster, by Agnes, da. and heir of Robert de la Mare (se R.W.

  VCH (Oxfordshire, vol 13, Standlake) implies that it was this John whose widow was Agnes (d 1369, m2.Thomas, Lord Bradeston) and that they were the parents of Gilles who married John de Moleyns. We follow TCP in showing Agnes as 2nd wife of his nephew.
