· In the later reign of King Henry II Walter, son of Simon de Wahull, and Simon his son confirmed grants in Grimscote.
· The Woodhill family was descended from the great Domesday baron, Walter Falndrensis, Lord of Patteshall, created 1st Baron Wahull by William the Conqueror. The s/o the 1st Baron was Simon de Wahull. (S) NY Gen. and Bio. Record, 1880, P190.
· [This is a plausible biography of this family based on the nuances of the various records – why Hugh in 1197 would purchase the wardship of Simon’s son John if John’s grandfather Walter were still living. It does not match any published genealogies. More research is needed; e.g. “1201, Simon de Wahull, the younger, owed 73 marks to the 1st scutage of King John.”]
