From the Red Book of the Exchequer, i. pp. 390-391:
"Isti sunt milites Richard de Haia, et serviunt ad servitium Regis per carucatas. Et v carucatae faciunt j militem, et milites tenaent eas, quidam plus quidam minus" or "These are the knights of Richard de la Haye, and they serve in the service of the King by carucates. And five carucates make a knight, and the knights hold them, some more, some less."
Richard de la Haye was the son of Muriel, daughter of Colswein of Lincoln. Colswein was one of the two Englishmen holding estates of baronial dimensions directly of the king at the time of the Domesday Survey. Colswein was succeeded by his son, Picot, around 1101. Picot was succeeded by his brother-in-law, the husband of Muriel, Robert de la Haye. Muriel and Robert de la Haye were the parents of Richard de la Haye.
