bullet  Information about this person:

• Background Information. 1110
William Peveral was one of the first owners of Colwick, which was known as 'Over' and 'Nether' Colwick. 'Over' Colwick was held by the family which took the name Colwick, and held the Colwick by service of twelve barbed arrows given to the Monarch when he came to Nottingham Castle. The first of this name was Reginald de Colwick. His name appears in the records as one of the witnesses in Nov. 1225 to a document by which certain tolls were let by the burgesses of Nottingham to their neighbors of Retford. He again occurs as Sir Reginald de Colwick, knight in 1241, when he witnessed a charter by which Ralph de Rhodes confirmed a grand he had made to St. John's Hospital.

In 1280, a jury found that Reginald de Colwick, grandfather of William, lived a hundred years, and that he and Philip, his son & father of William, had their part enclosed with hedge and ditch at their pleasure.

"In 1198 Reginald de Colewyk held his land in Colwick by serjeanty; the knights of the jury said his land was worth £6 a year [Bk. of Fees, 7]. The land was 1 carucate and he held it by the service of 12 arrows, and one-third carucate in Willoughby for which he must find a rouncey with a sake when the king goes into Wales; it was the honor of Peverel [Bk. of Fees, 148]. He still held it in 1219 [Bk. of Fees, 287] and 1226-29 [Bk. of Fees, 374].

"It was found in 1249-52 that nothing had been alienated from the serjeanty of Reginald de Colewic in Colwick and Willoughby; for the former he owed the king's coming to Nottingham once a year 12 arrows; for the other a horse worth 13s. 4d., a sack and pin and canvas headstall ('capustrum'), price one and one-half [Bk. of Fees, 1197]. In 1250 it was found that Reginald de Colwick held the manor of Colwick, worth 100s. a year, paying 3s. to the sheriff for all dues, including sheriff's aid. He also held 25 bovates in Willoughby, values at £6 a year, paying 25d. to the sheriff for all [Yeatman, Feudal Derbys, iii. 175]."
