  • Married:

  Also known as Winemar FLANDRENSIS and Winemar LE FLEMING.

  General Notes:

Compiler's 26 x great-grandfather

  Research Notes:

Winemar, besides his portion of Cosgrave, had the whole or parts of Easton Mauduit, Hanington, Ashton, and Easton Neston; and was also mesne lord of Preston Deanry and Hackleton under the bishop of Constance, of Wotton under Walter Flandrensis, of Rothersthorp under Geoffrey Anselyn, of Knuston under Gunfrid de Cioches or Chokes, and of Boscate, Dodington, Brayfield, Houghton, Preston Deanry, and Quinton, under the countess Judith. So ignorant were the Norman scribes of the names of the tenants in chief, or so careless of preserving their identity, that Winemar occurs under four different designations: under most of the Northamptonshire entries he has that appellation only, but as claimant of Piddington and Wollaston, against the countess Judith, he appears with the addition of de Anslepe and de Hanslepe, and it is still more singular that under Hanslope he is not described by that local addition, but as Winemar Flandr' [Flandrensis], though every circumstance combines in proof that the same individual is intended. The site selected for his castle in Hanslope, now called Castlethorp, is bordering on Cosgrave parish, which accounts for his retaining Cosgrave in his demesne. 1
