|Father||possibly William de la Launde?|
|Wife||Lucy de Okeover|
|Children||Joan, William, John, Matilda|
William's origins are uncertain, but it seems likely that he originated in or near the village of Newton (on Rawcliff), near Pickering in Yorkshire (1), where he married Lucy de Okeover (18).
Lucy's father, Hugh, granted them the manor of Caldelowe in Derbyshire (2)(3)(4), and this is presumably where they settled, as William witnessed a number of charters around the area in the late 1250s / early 1260s (5)(6)(7)(8) - some of them as a co-witness with his father in law (9)(10)(11)(12), and their eldest son was also stated to have been born in Derbyshire (31). However William also held lands in Maldon, Essex (13), which appear to have been in his family since at least 1220 (14).
Their daughter Joan is believed to have been born around the early 1250s (15), their son William about 1261 (16), and his younger brother John in the second half of the 1260s (16). They also had a daughter Matilda (3)(4), but her date of birth is unknown.
William died in 1269 (17)(28)(29)(30)(31). His wife survived him and remarried (18).

Goditha replied that at the time the Fine was levied Roger was within the four seas, becuase he wasat Mynsterton in co. Leicester, which she was prepared to prove. Philip repeated that on the date of the Fine and for a year and a day afterwards, the said Roger was in Scotland, and died there, which he was prepared to prove*. A day was therefore given to the parties in Banco on the Tuesday after three weeks from St Michael, on which day both Goditha and Philip appeared in person, and because the plea could not be determined in co. Derby a day was given to the parties on the Thursday at a month from St Michael, on which day Goditha and Philip appeared in person, and stated that they were prepared to maintain their pleas as given above, and prayed that a jury might be summoned from co Leicester; and the Sheriff was ordered to summon a jury for the Octaves of St Hillary. A postscript shows that no jury had been empanelled up to the morrow of the Ascension. m334.
