Around 1 Apr 1240, William de Warren de Albo Monasterio, died leaving a son and heir, William, of full age. William, son and heir, paid a fine of twenty merks to secure the King's Writ to the Sheriff of Shropshire ordering his investiture in his late Father's estates, but the Sheriff was to retain the Castle of Album Monasterium until further orders.
William de Warren or de Albo Monasterios, Lord of Whitshurch, was deceased before 11 June 1260. A Patent of that date orders James de Audley, then Sheriff of Shropshire, to give Peter de Nevill custody of the Castle of Album Monasterium until June 24 of the same year.
In 1272, the daughters and coheirs of William de Albo Monasterio were Alienore, married to Robert le Strange; Joan, married to William de Barentyn; and Matild, married to Robert de Brascy. They joined in a suit against James de Audley over their father's estates in Whitchurch and Essex.
