The Mainwarings of Warmingham, and their successors the Trussels held the manor.

This Matild was Agnes Mainwaring's daughter.
When William Trussel junior died Matild married sir Oliver de Burghall (Bourdeaux).
In Edward II thirteenth year the Prince of Wales granted to Matild and Oliver the right to enclose and cultivate the wastes in their manor of Rode.

This William son of John was knighted and was the last male heir. During his lifetime he took out of Northrode £10 annually for two chaplains to celebrate divine service, at the parish church of Warmingham for the souls of William Trussell and his ancestors, and for the souls of all the faithful departed.
