The manor of Thurstanston appears from the Doomsday survey to have been given, along with adjacent townships, to Robert de Rodelent. Once Robert de Rodelent died it passed to Matthew de Rodelent, who was likely the illegitimate son of Robert. Once his brother became a monk at Chester, Matthew presented the church to the abbot and convent of St. Werborgh, in that city. William, the son of this Matthew, assumed the the local name, confirmed the gift of his father to the abbey.
