William de Cantilupe was married to Mascelina, daughter of Audult de Bracy. William died at a very great age on 7 Apr 1239. His son and heir, William II, was most likely his son by his wife Mascelina. William Cantilupe was living during the reign of King John. He was steward of the household, and one of the chief counselors who remained faithful to John. William joined the Barons for a brief time, but returned his loyalty to King John, and was rewarded for his allegience. He received the forfeited lands of rebellious barons as a reward from the King. Included in this was Kenilworth Castle, which he made his principal residence. Henry III kept Catilupe in his office as Steward, and Catilupe continued to increase his land holding. He bought the wardship of the heirs of five great estates; matching one heiress with a brother, another with a son and keeping a third for himself. He died in 1239, leaving five sons, William, Walter, John, Nicholas and Thomas. His 5th great granddaughter
