    Bicknoller manor was held in 1086 by William de Estre under Robert, count of Mortain. From William the manor descended to his son Jordan and then grandson Richard de Estre (Som. Rec. Soc. viii, pp.168-9). From them was clearly descended a further William de Estre, whose daughter and heiress Joan had married Robert de Paveley by 1243 (c.1260 according to Bicknell).
    In Henry I's reign the de L'Estre family were in possession of the Berkhamsted fee [of Easton Neston, Northants] and the Maudits were holding eight virgates, presumably the Domesday estate of Winemar de Hanslope. (Footnote 7) By the early 13th century the Chocques fee in Easton Neston was held by Geoffrey de Estenestone of Robert de Gines, (Footnote 8) who held the Chocques lands there in 1236 and 1242. (Footnote 9) William de L'Estre held the manor in 1236. (Footnote 10) In 1240, however, Robert Paveley and his wife demised the manor to Imbert Pugeys. (Footnote 11) In 1241 Imbert was patron of the rectory of Easton Neston, together with John de Hulcote (lord of Hulcote), Eustace de Estneston, and Richard de Paveley. (Footnote 12)
