   General Notes:

THURSTAN DE MONTFORT (b), brother and heir. His name appears in the account of the sheriff of Berks in 1130, He had succeeded his brother by the spring of 1141, when the Empress Maud at Winchester gave him a charter for a market every Sunday at his castle of Beaudesert, near Henley in Arden. He attested several charters of Roger, and one of William, Earls of Warwick, to the College of Warwick, his name coming usually after those of the Earl's immediate family. He also attested, on the Earl's side, the agreement made at Devizes in 1153 between Henry, Duke of Normandy (afterwards Henry II), and Ranulph, Earl of Chester. In 1156 he owed the King 20 marks for his land in Rutland. In 1166 he held under three tenants in chief of the Earl of Warwick 10 1/4 fees (Beaudesert, &c.), of Roger de Mowbray 3 3/4 in Yorks, and of Robert de Stafford 1/4 (Henley in Arden). After his brother's death he confirmed the grant of Wing to Thorney Abbey for the souls of himself, his wife and children, and especially of his brother Robert. He made a gift to Guisborough for the soul of his brother Henry (1155-70). His name disappears from the Pipe Roll after 1170. He married Juliane, daughter and coheir of Geoffrey MURDAC.
