Here are my notes for Thomas de Muschamps of Wooler:
In 1168, the "carta" of Stephen de Bulmer in Northumberland, shows his
son Thomas, "Thomam filium meum" holding 1 fee of the new feoffment
Stephen de Bulmer and Thomas de Muscamp his heir, "Thomas de Muscamp
haeres meus," approved an arrangement about the fishery on the Tees
between the monks of Reivaulx and Walter de Stainsby .
In 1172, Thomas son of Stephen de Bulmer paid 100s. scutage in
Thomas de Muschamps died in (probably before) 1190, when Robert his
son gave 200 marks for his relief .
In 1182, Thomas de Muschamps paid 35l. 18d. for his lands in
Northumberland. He appears in the Pipe Roll of 1183, but in 1185, his
lands were in the king's custody .
