  • Note:

    The seven hides at Wicken, Cambridgeshire, possessed before 1066 by Eddeva the fair were by 1086 held in demesne by her successor, Count Alan, lord of Richmond. Soon after, that manor was granted to Wimar (Wihomarc), steward of Alan's honor of Richmond. Wicken manor continued to be held of that honor throughout the Middle Ages, in the 13th and 14th centuries as one knight's fee, and into the early 17th century.
    From Wimar the steward (fl. to c. 1125), Wicken manor was inherited by his (elder) son Warner the steward, still its tenant in the 1160s.
    In 1086 Wimar, steward of the Count of Brittany, held the manor of Wicken with lands in Fordham and Landwade; these his grandson's daughter, Beatrice, and her husband Hugh Malebiche held in 1208-9. Before 1227-8 they had founded the priory of St. Mary and the Holy Cross at Spinney in Wicken, and endowed it with the advowson of the parish church of Wicken, 55 acres of land, a marsh called Frithfen, and the fishery of Gormere; Wimar of Thornton (in Yorkshire), the distant cousin who was Beatrice's heir, gave a tillage called Meckhowe.
    Matthew, son of Wimar de Thornton, was killed in 1259, his heir Roger, in 1263, in the Barons' War. Roger's brothers died childless, and their sister Mary, wife of Humphrey de Bassingbourn, became sole heir of Beatrice Malebiche, and 'foundress' of the Priory of Spinney, Cambridgeshire.
