One of theree daus and coheirs of Simon de Aubigny of Cainhoe, Beds.
Christiana late wife of Peter de la Stane died in 1318.
The remaining third of the manor of Clophill and Cainhoe, which was the inheritance of Christina, second daughter of William de Albini, was, on her death in 1318, (fn. 29) divided again into thirds among her three daughters by Peter de la Stane, Elizabeth, Margery, and Christina. The youngest daughter Christina married Anthony de Byddik and died in 1326, (fn. 30) when the custody of the ninth part of the manor was granted to John de Mere as her son and heir John was only fifteen years old. (fn. 31) In 1334 John granted this part for life to John Dakeney and Joan his wife, (fn. 32) and in 1336 they acquired full possession. (fn. 33) This John Dakeney was probably a younger son of Joan de Albini, the youngest daughter of William de Albini and wife of Roger Dakeney, and therefore uncle to Roger, to whom in 1348 he transferred his right in the manor. (fn. 34)
Through Elizabeth the eldest daughter one ninth passed to her son Peter de Norton, who died without issue in 1330, when his brother Thomas inherited it. (fn. 35) The latter died in 1346, (fn. 36) but in 1334 he had alienated the ninth of the manor for life to John Dakeney and Joan his wife (fn. 37) ; it reverted to Thomas de Norton's son Sir Ralph de Norton, who sold his right in the ninth part of the manor to John Dakeney, grandson of Roger, and his wife Mary in 1373.
The remaining ninth, which fell to the inheritance of Margery, the second daughter, passed to her son Brian Saffey, who died in 1349, probably of the plague, leaving a daughter Alice or Joan, who also died the next year. (fn. 39) This part of the manor then reverted to her uncle, Thomas Saffey, and on his death in 1361 passed to his sister Joan. (fn. 40) In 1364 Joan alienated this ninth to John Dakeney, (fn. 41) the grandson of Roger, who thus acquired eight parts of the manor, purchasing the remaining part from Sir Ralph de Norton in 1373, when the whole manor was reunited.
