This website includes a mere taste of a larger research work eventually published as a book.  The website summarizes key elements of the many stories surrounding the Watford manor and Knight's Fee.  

I welcome comments.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS:  Numerous sources have been explored to provide the foundation for this work.  These days, excellent material is commonly available on the internet.  Sources mined extensively include: http://www.medievalgenealogy.org.uk, https://archive.org, http://www.british-history.ac.uk.  Also, my research touched the extensive archives and invaluable original material of: The Bodleian Libraries of the University of Oxford, the British Library, the College of Arms, TNA of London, and especially NRO in Northamptonshire.  The NRO's  Ormonde Kilkenny collection deserves a special mention.  My thanks to the very helpful staff of them all.
