• Background Information. 1026
Ryton-on-Dunsmore was one of the vills given by Earl Leofric to Coventry Priory in 1043 [Dugdale, Mon. Angl. iii, 191]. But in Dugdale's words 'it seems, that the Monks chopt it quickly away, though it appears not how', [Dugd. 46] for by 1066 it was held by 'Alwin' (Ælfwine), and in 1086 by his son Turchil of Warwick, being then assessed at 3½ hides and including woodland half a league by 2 furlongs, and a mill worth 12s. The value had seriously decreased, from 100s. in 1066 to 60s. in 1086 [VCH, warw. i, 318]. The manor remained with Turchil's descendants, the Arden or Arderne family, for about 200 years.
