• Background Information. 1403
At the time of the Domesday Survey, Nigel d'Albini held the manor of Cainhoe and the manor of Clophill; [V.C.H. Beds. i, 244a] these two manors were always held together and became known as the manor or manors of Clophill and Cainhoe. That of Clophill consisted of 5 hides, and had been held by two thegns, men of Earl Tosti, while the manor of Cainhoe was assessed at 4 hides and had been held by Alvric, a thegn of King Edward. The manor descended to Nigel's son Henry and to the latter's son Robert, who died in 1192, and was succeeded by his son Robert, who died in 1224: his son Robert enjoyed the manor for only a short space, as he died without issue in 1233, when the manor passed to his sister Isabel, who married first William de Hocton, and secondly Drew des Preaux.

• Background Information. 1403
At Domesday Nigel de Albini held the manor, afterwards called Henlow Lanthony, which was then assessed at 5½ hides, three virgates of which were held by the monks of St. Nicholas of Angers in free alms. Erfast held as subtenant under Nigel de Albini. In 1199 a charter of King John confirms the gift of this manor to the monks of Lanthony, Gloucester, by Nigel son of Erfast, and by Henry de Albini and Robert his son, from whom Nigel held in socage.
