Adam de AUDITHLEY.
Son of Lydulph de ALDIYHLEY.
Among the Norman knights who accompanied William, the Conqueror, into England in 1066 were Adam de Aldiyhley and his two sons, Lydulph and Adam. These received, as did others of William's associates, large possessions from the conquered lands as a reward for their services. Lydulph, the elder son, had a son Adam, and Adam, the younger son, had a son William, and these two young Normans, both grandsons of the old Norman warrior, married wives of the Saxon family de Stoneley.
Adam de Alditheley, son of Lydulph, married Mabella Stonleigh, and received with her in marriage portion the two adjacent estates of Stonleigh and Balterley. They were the ancestors of the noble family of Audley, so called by the shortening of the name from Aldiyheley to Audley. (S2).
