Lisle Manor

After the Norman conquest of England in 1066 William FitzOsbern, 1st Earl of Hereford held a manor of 10 hides of land at Fritwell. William's son Roger de Breteuil, 2nd Earl of Hereford inherited his estates when William died in 1071, but in 1075 Roger took part in the Revolt of the Earls, was defeated by William I and imprisoned. The Crown confiscated and redistributed Roger's lands and seems to have given Fritwell to Roger de Chesney. The manor descended in the de Chesney family until 1160 by which time Maud, Daughter of William de Chesney, had become married to Henry II's chamberlain Henry FitzGerold. ...

[William de] Chesney was the son of Roger de Chesney and Alice de Langetot.[1] The elder Chesney probably originated near Quesney-Guesnon in the Calvados region of Normandy, and was a tenant of Robert d'Oilly at the time of the Domesday Survey.[2]

Of William's siblings, one was Robert de Chesney, who later became Bishop of Lincoln.[3] Another brother, Reginald, became abbot of Evesham Abbey,[4] and the rest were Hugh, Ralph, Hawise, Beatrice, Isabel,[2] and Roger.[5]
