Combe Hawey is now called Combe Hay.
Einion Fawr, then, had in 1091 to give up possessions, summarily of St Donats, in favour of Hawey, of Combe Hawey in Somersetshire, one of the numerous knights who holding manors under Fitzhammon in the honour of Gloucester, accompanied their lord upon the expedition which ended in the conquest of Glamorganshire.
There were far more than 'twelve' of these adventurers who obtained the reward of a 'manor' in Glamorganshire for their services in the successful foray. St Donats was held by the Haweys family until at least 1262, for in the 'extant' of the lordships of Glamorgan, taken in that year, upon the accession of Earl Gilbert de Clare - the holder of the fee of St Donats, value £10, is one of that name who also holds one fee in Marcross with £10, which the heir of Richard le Butler ought to hold.
