Early Origins of the Maudet family
The surname Maudet was first found in Hampshire
where they held a family seat
as Lords of the Manor. Conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant
of the lands of Warminster who was recorded in the Domesday Book
census of 1086. A family Mauduit were the Lords of the Hundred
of Warminster, Wiltshire
in the 12th century. And the manor of Shalden, Hampshire
was held by William Mauduit at the time of the Domesday Survey
. This family, of St. Martin du Bosc, Eure Etrepagny, held the manor into the 12th century. A family of this name was also on record in Northamptonshire by the 12th century. A William Maudit is said to have been a Chamberlain to William the Conqueror. A later William Mauduit (d. 1170) was Chamberlain to King Henry 1st. William Maudit (or Mauduit), 8th Earl of Warwick (c.
1220-1267) was an English nobleman and son of Alice de Beaumont (daughter of the 4th Earl) and William de Maudit. When he died, his estates passed to his sister, Isabel de Maudit who had married William de Beauchamp.
