Hanslope Castle was the caput of the small local honour of Hanslope sometimes called from the 12th and 13th-century holders the Mauduit barony or fee. It represented the Domesday fief of Winemar the Fleming*, which lay principally in Hanslope, but extended also into Northamptonshire, where it included small holdings in Cosgrove, Easton Maudit, Strixton, Ashton, and Easton Neston. Winemar was succeeded in all his lands held in chief by Michael de Hanslope, after whose death Henry I granted his honour and lands in marriage with his daughter, Maud de Hanslope, to William Mauduit.
*[V.C.H. Northants, i, 342] Winemar is called de Hanslope twice in the Northamptonshire Domesday [ibid. i, 290]. Barrowden in Rutland granted by Queen Maud to Michael de Hanslope and afterwards restored by the Empress Maud to William Mauduit [Add. MS. 28024, fol. 21b) was attached to this honour [Cal. Inq. p.m. Edw. II, v, 400].

Hanslape, which included Castlethrope, was bestowed by William the Conqueror on Winemar, of Flanders, one of the Conqueror's companions. During the reign of Henry I, Hanslape was held by Michael de Hanslape, who bequeathed this Manor to his daughter Maud. Michael de Hanslape was undoubtedly a son of Winemar. The King bestowed Maud de Hanslape, with her whole inheritance, on William Mauduit, Chamberlain of the Royal Exchequer.
