In the time of King Edward the Confessor a high ranking Danish man named Norman was given the ownership of Thrybergh, Dalton, and Brinsworth. Normans name simply meant Northman and he was a grandson of Alwine and also Farthegn, the latter being the ruler of Yorkshire.
In 1066 with the invasion of England by the Normans
who were not exactly French but descendants of the Danes who had been
given land in France in earlier times the estates of Thrybergh, Brinsworth,
and Dalton were given to a William of Spofforth. However he had the
estates taken from him
in 1086 for refusing to pay Dane Gelt a tax which was raised to collect
money to raise armies to defend England against the Danes.
The estate of Brinsworth [ 1086 Brinsford ] was held by Rozelline along with Thrybergh under William De Percy.
Rozelline had a Co-heir whose name was Baron Adam Swain who was the son of the founder of the priory of Monkbretton. This Adam Swain had daughters and the eldest daughter and co-heir married a certain Alexandra Crevequer, so the lordship of Thrybergh still under De Percy eventually passed to her descendants who were the the Nevils and the Hetons, one of the latter in the reign of Edward 111.
After the early twelfth century, the most frequent cause for the partitioning of estates was through inheritance by heiresses. In 1159, for example, Adam, son of Sveinn, son of Alric died, leaving as his heirs his two daughters, Amabel and Maude, who had married William de Neville and Adam de Montbegan.

Rozelline's properties had also included lands in Stainton and Reresby in Lincolnshire, so when Ralph De Normanville married Avica in 1168-89 the properties at Thrybergh, Dalton, Brinsworth, Stainton, and Reasby fell into the ownership of the Normanville's.

This was a case of King John disposing of Isabella's [ Known as Johns Jezebel ] dowry lands, and Rutland was a fee farm presented by the king to Ralph de Normanville and his heirs in 1205. However the circumstances as to why Ralph abandoned his custody of the county in 1209 is not certain.
Thomas de Parenny of Boston had letters of safe conduct (dated 5th October, 1216) to the King, to obtain the redemption of Gerald de Normanville, his lord.
King John the bad guy in Robin Hood had two powerful servants in his household who were Ralph de Normanville and Ralph of Bray who were both called Marshalls of the Kings army in 1213. Ralph de Normanville had begun his career in the household of the Kings justiciar Geoffrey Fitz Peter.

Avicia who was a rightful heiress in the counties of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire had claimed the land in Stainton in 1203.

Avicia de Nornanville seeks against the abbot of Barlings and Reginald the keeper of the bridge twenty acres of land and five of meadow in Stainton by Langworth as her right and inheritance whereof Ralf de Normanville formally her husband and she were seised as of the fee and right of this Avicia.
Avicia being descended from Rozeline who had
previously been the owner of land in Stainton. From the book
"From him [ Hugh Fitz Osmond ] came the barons of
Normanville , a younger branch of whom held the--- and held Dalton in the
same county, as well as Stainton in Lincolnshire"
It seems therefore certain that the Stainton estate came to this Ralph by marriage with Avicia.

Of around 1185-90 Ralph De Normanville granted to his son lands in Thrybergh and elsewhere by consent of Avicia his wife. He also gave one oxgang in Brinsford to the Templars in 1194-5, and his widow had two oxgangs there in 1203
Throughout the history of Thrybergh the name Saville[ Sayvile ] appears time and time again and here is one of the first mentions
The little manor of Ickles which seems to have taken its name from the house can be traced back to the reign of Richard 1 when Templeborough and Ickles were given by Ralph and Avica Normanville to Richard De Savile in marriage with Iclonia their daughter. This Richard and Ralph his son may have had a residence at the Ickles, as in 1322 there was a place named ’ Sayvile sike’.
The Normanville male linage is thus:
Ralph de Normanville of Empingham born around 1115
Gerold de Normanville , of Empingham born around 1142
John de Normanville born around 1191 Oakham, Empingham, Rutlandshire.
Adam Normanville born ?
Adam was holding Thrybergh in 1316 (Feudal
Aids, vi, 199); Sir William De Wykersley priest Thrybergh
, on the près, of Adam de
Normanville of Thrybergh. 989. 7 idus Aprilis (April 7), 1313.
Margery Normanville daughter of Ralph de Normanville, and sister and heiress of Adam de Normanville. She married Ralph Reresby born 1186 son of Isorius Fitzalexander De Reresby born around 1155.

C: 1291-1309 (1901), pp. 15-20. URL: http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.asp?compid=33054.
Margery Normanville was born in Thrybergh in 1248 she was a daughter of Ralph Normanville born around 1220 at Thrybergh and Avicia born around 1224 who held Thrybergh at this time, Margery married Ralph Reresby who was born around 1248 in Ashover Derbyshire, he was the son of Isidore Reresby and Amicia.
It follows then that though the Reresby family of Ralph and Margery were resident at Thrybergh, they held the manor as sub tenant's of Adam Normanville who died circa c 1338.
