The manor of Wethersfield was in the hands of William son of William de Curci who was a ward of the King. The elder William de Curci died in or about 1170, leaving his infant son, the second William de Curci. The younger William had a daughter and heir named Alice who married Henry de Cornhill as her first husband, and Warine Fitz Gerold, as her second. Alice brought the Wethersfield manor to marriage, and it was given to the Neville family by way of Joan, her daughter by her first husband. Joane married, about 1195, Hugh de Neville.
