Robert de Burneby and Joanna, John le Brun and Alice, Richard Burdun and Egelina, and Ralph de Wedon and Laurencia brought a suit against William Mauduit for four parts of the manor of Letcombe Basset as their rightful inheritance. 12 William responded that they had no claim, since Thurstan had granted the manor to William by his charter for the service of 2 knights. The plaintiffs countered that Thurstan had suffered a paralytic stroke before making the grant, so that he was enfeebled and his memory failed him. Thurstan never improved and steadily deteriorated. William claimed on the contrary that Thurstan was of sound mind and fit memory when the charter was drafted on 24 June and that on the following 29 September Thurstan married off his daughter and travelled with her to a monastery.
William married Alice DE NEWBURGH, daughter of Waleran DE BEAUMONT 4th Earl of Warwick and Alice DE HARCOURT, about 1211 in Hanslope, Buckinghamshire, England. (Alice DE NEWBURGH was born in 1196 in Hanslope, Buckinghamshire, England and died before 1263.)
