  • Note:

    Whether Robert de Padworth, son of Miles de Padworth who was tenant of Padworth in 1164, can be identified with the Robert de Coudray who died early in the reign of Henry III is uncertain, but about 1240 Fulk de Coudray was holding Padworth by the serjeanty of finding one man to hold a rope in the queen's ship when she crossed the sea between England and Normandy
    Fulk gave the manor of Padworth, together with that of Sherborne Coudray (co. Hants), to Maud de Herriard and Nicholas Sifrewast her son for their lives, in exchange for the manor of Herriard, which Maud had granted to him and his heirs for ever.
    Fulk died in 1251, leaving as his heir his son Peter.
    The first of the Coudary family to whom reference has been found in Moulsoe is Peter de Coudary, who is said to have presented to the church in the time of King John.
    Fulk de Coudary held a fee here in demesne c. 1240, and died about 1251 seised of Moulsoe Manor, which was then of sufficient importance to have five of the Earl Marshal's knights' fees in Buckinghamshire and one in Bedfordshire attached to it.
    Peter son of Fulk de Coudray was under age at his father's death. In 1262 Richard de Sifrewast relinquished his right in the manor (obtained by an agreement with Fulk) to Peter de Coudray, who is returned as holding one fee in Moulsoe in 1284?6. Peter de Coudray died about 1303
