Warin FitzGerold c. 1167 - after 14 Nov 1216. The Rotuli de Dominabus of 1185 lists “Matillis de Kaineto”, with “ii filios; primogenitus est xviii annorum, alter xii” and “terra sua in Kameltone...vii libris annuatim”.
The Red Book of the Exchequer, listing scutage payments in c. 1194/95, records "Warinus filius Geroldi" paying "xl s, ii milites" in Kent and also in Essex, Hertfordshire.
"Guarinus son of Gerold chamberlain of the king of England" confirmed donations to Marmoutier made by “William junioris de Curceio” by charter dated to before 1206.
The Red Book of the Exchequer records "Garinus filius Geroldi" holding "Suvenhantone per serjanteriam Cameræ Regis et Crikelade" in Wiltshire, and i knight’s fee "de Harewode" in Yorkshire, in c. 1210/12.
The Testa de Nevill includes a writ of King John dated 1212 which records that "Warinus filius Geroldi" held "Wtton…de baronia sua de Stok Curcy…in hundredo de Karenton" in Somerset.
Ten hides in Sparsholt, afterwards called KINGSTON LISLE, (Kyngeston Gerard), formed part of the royal demesne both in the reign of the Confessor and in 1086. This land, which was worth £20 and included 200 acres of meadow, remained in the possession of the Crown till the middle of the 12th century, when it was granted to the family of Fitz Gerold, hereditary chamberlains. Warin Fitz Gerold, the original grantee, was succeeded in 1157 by his brother Henry, the tenant in 1166. Henry married Maud de Cheney, and held the manor till his death in 1173, when he was succeeded by his son Warin. By his marriage with Alice de Courci this Warin inherited the manor of Harewood in Yorkshire. He lived till 1218, when his lands in Sparsholt were inherited, not by his daughter Margery, but by his younger brother Henry. His own descendants, however, retained an overlordship. Margery married as her first husband Baldwin de Rivers, and had a son Baldwin, Earl of Devon. His right was inherited first by his son Baldwin, who died without issue, and then by his daughter Isabel, who married William de Fortz, and had two and a half knights' fees in Kingston Lisle and Sparsholt in 1267. On her death her estates were claimed by the descendants in the direct line of Henry Fitz Gerold, the Lords de Lisle of Rougemont, who thus became overlords of Kingston Lisle, the tenancy in demesne having passed meanwhile to a younger branch. In 1368 Robert de Lisle, Lord Lisle of Rougemont, surrendered his knights' fees here and elsewhere to the Crown.

A merge with FitzGerold-13 will correct this, but of course, someone with the ability to remove the PPP, complete the merge and re-apply the protection will be needed.

Maud's LNAB is incorrect. We need to delete the 'de'. She's the daughter of Hugh de Chesney, son of Roger de Chesney by Alice de Langtot.

Any objection to my changing the LNAB from Fitzgerald to FitzGerald to conform to EuroAristo naming standards?
