• Background Information. 1200
In the time of Edward the Confessor Ampthill was held by seven sokemen, who could assign and sell their land to whom they wished. William I granted the manor to Nigel Albini, of whom it was held in 1086 by Nigel de Wast. It was then assessed at 5 hides and valued at £4. The estates of Nigel de Wast subsequently escheated to the lords of the fief, but before the year 1219 Nicholas Poinz and Joan his wife had been enfeoffed of it [Excerpta e Rot. Fin. (Rec. Com.), i, 26]. They held a weekly market there for which they paid 5 marks to the king [Ibid.; Pat. 3 Hen. III, m. 5; 4 Hen. III]. Soon afterwards the manor appears to have again escheated, and Joan Albini, the daughter and co-heir of Robert Albini, was granted a yearly fair there in 1242 [Cal. Chart. R. 1226-57, p. 274. It is possible that Joan wife of Nicholas Poinz may have been the same person as Joan Albini.]. The manor, together with property in Millbrook, was held by service of one and a-half knights' fees [Testa de Nevill (Rec. Com.), 250b]. Joan Albini died without issue, and her property was divided between her two sisters Isabel and Asseline [Plac. de Quo Warr. (Rec. Com.), 66]. The bulk of the Ampthill property went to Asseline.
