notes or source: LDS

Little else is recorded of Baron William Draycote de Malbanc's life. His wife Andilicia probably died early in the reign of Henry II. They had no male heirs and, on his death, his lands and the privileges of the Nantwich barony were divided between his three daughters.[1] Philippa, the eldest, inherited Nantwich Castle as part of her share of the town. She married Thomas, Lord Basset of Headington in Oxfordshire. The second daughter, Eleanor, did not marry; her lands were granted to Henry de Audley.[1] Auda (also Adena), the youngest daughter, married Warin (also Warren) de Vernon; their daughter Auda (also Aldetha) brought Sandon in Staffordshire by marriage to Sir William Stafford, a member of the great baronial family of Stafford Castle.[1][2]
