  • Note: From Complete Peerage (Vol XII(2):270-271): "He was one of those minor barons who rose to importance and wealth as officers of Henry I, and from 1120 or earlier he constantly attests royal chargers. In 1126 he became the King's vice-generent in the palatine county of Shropshire. In 1130 he was acting as a justice in cos. Stafford, Gloucester and Northants, usually in conjunction with Miles of Gloucester. He is said to have built Pain's Castle, co. Radnor; and in 1134 the Welsh burnt his castle of Caus, Salop, and slew all its inmates. At the death of Henry I he was vice-gerent of cos. Hereford and Salop; and he and Miles abovenamed, who ruled co. Gloucester, had extended their power over the Marches from the Severn to the sea. With other officers of the late King they would not go to court without a safe-conduct, fearing that they might be forced to disgorge the wealth which they had accumulated. Eventually they joined Stephen at Reading for the late King's funeral in Jan. 1135/36. At Easter Payn was with Stephen at Westminster and he proceeded with the King to Oxford. He m. Sibyl, da. of Geoffrey TALBOT, by Agnes, probably da. of Walter DE LACY. Payn gave Sibyl as dower land from his own inheritance.
