  Research Notes:

Manor of Cublington, Buckinghamshire:

Before the Conquest CUBLINGTON was held of Edward the Confessor as two manors of 8 hides and 2 hides respectively by Torchil and Godmin. By 1086 these 10 hides were held of the king by Gozelin the Breton, but by 1283 they formed part of the honour of Gloucester, to which they were still appurtenant in 1615.

Gozelin the Breton was succeeded by his son Hugh, on whose death Cublington descended to his son Walter, who bore the surname of de Chesney. Walter de Chesney appears to have been at first succeeded by his daughter Mabel, the wife of Aumary le Despencer, with whom she is mentioned in connexion with the church of Cublington in 1186. 2

  Marriage Information:

Hugh married Isabel DE CHESNEY, daughter of Roger I DE CHESNEY and Alice DE LANGETOT.
