Name: Robert de Albini
Residence: Cainhoe, Beds
Change Date: 14 FEB 2010
At the time of the Domesday Survey, Nigel d'Albini held the manor of Cainhoe and the manor of Clophill; these two manors were always held together and became known as the manor or manors of Clophill and Cainhoe. That of Clophill consisted of 5 hides, and had been held by two thegns, men of Earl Tosti, while the manor of Cainhoe was assessed at 4 hides and had been held by Alvric, a thegn of King Edward.
The manor descended to Nigel's son Henry and to the latter's son Robert, who died in 1192, and was succeeded by his son Robert, who died in 1224: his son Robert enjoyed the manor for only a short space, as he died without issue in 1233, when the manor passed to his sister Isabel, who married first William de Hocton, and secondly Drew des Preaux.
Her son William must have assumed the name de Albini, as he inherited the manor under that name on his mother's death in 1262. He apparently died soon after, when the manor passed to his son Simon, who died seised of it in 1272, leaving as his heirs his three sisters, Isabel, Christina, and Joan.
