12th & 13th Centuries Onward
The linage of the Percys ended in the male line at
the close of the 12th century by the deaths, without issue, of the four sons
of William de Perci's grandson William. The estates were divided between
their two sisters , Maud, wife of William de Mauduit, Earl of Warwick, who
died without issue, and Agnes, on whom the whole possessions of the Percy's
in England devolved, and passed to Joceleyn de Louvaine, brother of Adeliza,
Queen of Henry I, who assumed the name of Percy, Thus retaining the arms of
his own family.
Again the name of the wife of Ralph 11 is not known but he had a son Adam who inherited Thrybergh, and daughter named Margery Normanville who inherited from Adam who died without issue. Margery married a Ralph Reresby around 1287 thus beginning close to a four hundred year presence of Reresbys at Thrybergh. The Reresbys also owned properties and land in other parts of Yorkshire including Ickles which was on the land where Steel Peech and Tozer used to be in nearby Rotherham. The Reresbys also owned land at Ashover Derbyshire. Adam De Reresby Lord of Eshouere was born at Thrybergh approx 1288 Adam died prior to 1378.Adam married Thethnega approx 1302 who was also born in Thrybergh around 1282 [ For further reading see the Reresby family on this site ]
