Other Gostwicks and related entries from the 1309, Bedfordshire Tax Roll

Roberto de Gostwyke, taxed 0s 15d, Wottone, Incipit Hundred of Redburn, Bedfordshire (pg56 with Roger le Strange and the Botetourt families, in fact, most of Wottone names overlap with those in Wylitone)

Mulnho (aka Millowbury) There are two curious entries that could be Gostwicks?:

  • Rogero filio Gewette, taxed 0s 5 3/4d
  • Rogero de Wylitone, taxed 0s, 12d
  • Robert pater noster, taxed 2s could easily mean 'Father Robert', priest of Mulnho

Dunton (aka Dunston) More curious entries possibly Gostwicks...

  • Walter Osegodisdich, taxed 2s 6 1/2d


  • Willo de Wylliton, aka William of Willington, taxed 0s 10d (p73)

Sondeye (aka Sandy) Of note: Sibilla de Bella Campo, taxed 11s 9 1/4d

Bikelswade (aka Biggleswade) pg 100

  • Hugone de Hostwyke 0s 18 1/2d; a very suspicious entry, especially as 'hostwick' is an unknown surname at this time.

To Do

  • go back and double check the boundaries between the 1309 and 1332 lists. Few dates inline and they are taken almost a generation apart
  • Mistakes found from using incomplete access to these rolls. Call out the 1309 entries, and reconcile them with anyone using the citations. They may trigger ripples in Roger de Gostwyk's placement & logic.
