Thurstan died in January 1223. His property was then divided among his 6 daughters and heirs, each of whom paid a fine to the king to receive her portion of Thurstan's estate, as revealed in the fine roll for 29 January [CFR 1222-23, no. 55]. According to the fine, all of the daughters were married: Isabel to Robert Mauduit (who had died in 1222) [CFR 1221-22, no. 196] , Joanna to Robert de Burneby, Egelina to Richard Burdun, Alice to John le Brun, Matilda to Bartholomew de Packington, and Laurencia to Ralph de Wedon. The last two husbands are not named in the entry, which simply notes that Matilda and Laurencia married without the king's licence after Thurstan died.
