Please study this and forward it to interested parties. Raby Castle was in Staindrop and the
lords of Staindrop held both of the prior of Durham. Uchtred FitzMaldred fitzMaldred b. ca.1075-80;
d. 1128-9, was Lord of Raby. [ NEHGR 106:186-190; G. Andrews Moriarty: Origin of Nevill of Raby;
CP CIX 494 ] Also see Feodarium Dunelm, p.156, of William de St. Calais, Bishop of Durham,
purporting to give the monks part of the vill of Catton Newton Katton) "one part of which he had obtained in exchange from Meldred, for the vill of Winlaton". [or from Edmund, (son of Alstan, prob. son of Meldred fitz Crinan), who held part of Newton Ketton in 1084]. Winlaton manor was held by
the Nevills for centuries. The Nevills evidently inherited their rights in Winlaton from that Meldred, who, in or abt. 1084, received the vill from the Bishop.
