From Story of the family of Wandesforde of Kirklington & Castlecomer : compiled from original sources with a calendar enthistorical manuscripts by McCall, Hardy Bertram, 1859- Publication date 1904 link

The heiress of the house of Musters married secondly, in or before the year 1370, John de Wandesford of Westwick in the manor of Ripon, and the history of their descendants forms the subject of the following chapters. The lordship of Treswell like that of Kirklington was a male fief, and both were inherited by the Wandesfords. But some arrangement was made after 1400 by which the Nottinghamshire estate descended in the family of Gascoigne, Kirklington becoming the inheritance of the Wandesfords. At Michaelmas in the 7th of Henry VIII. (1515) Sir William Gascoigne the younger, Kt., and Margaret his wife suffered a recovery of the manor of Tyreswell, with the advowson of the church and ten messuages, 200 acres of land, 100 of pasture and 60 acres of wood with the appurtenances in Tyreswell.

Thus ended the knightly race of Musters, which for three centuries had held the manor of Kirklington and which gave us the church and village ; but the old Norman blood still flows in the veins of their descendants, though their name has long since passed out of popular remembrance.
