Eynion de Tilston

Eynion de Tilston

Sir Eynion de Tilston (born c. 1126) was a Norman knight and first lord of the manor of Tilston in the English county of Cheshire.

Lord of Tilston

In the 12th century, William de Malpas gave Eynion the manor of Tilston in Cheshire, near the Welsh border. He was given the lands of Tilston because he was a supporter of Hugh Lupus. The man who gave Sir Eynion de Tilston the manor was William de Malpas . He and his descendents had to be constantly alert because of the Welsh who constantly raided the border areas.

Marriage and family

In 1154 he married Beatrix de Gernons. They had at least one son born around 1156. The name of his son is unknown.
