On p.553 in his work, Plantagenet Ancestry, Douglas Richardson states that Alice, daughter of William and Ela de Odingseles, married "Maurice or Thomas Caunton".

As the following contemporaneous Plea Roll entries from the helpful British History online site show, Alice's husband was named Maurice, not Thomas, de Caunton:

(1) Banco Roll, Michaelmas, 27 E. I.

Warwickshire: Ela formerly wife of William de Oddingeseles sued Ralph de Whyteleye of Solihul for a third of a messuage and twenty-five acres of land in Solyhull as her dower; and Ralph called to warranty John de Clynton and Ida his wife, Peter de Bermyngham and Alice his wife, Morice de Kaunton and Ela his wife, and John de Gray and Margaret his wife, because the said women were the daughters and heirs of William de Oddingseles; and John de Clynton and Ida appeared and stated that the said Peter had no wife named Alice, nor had Morice a wife named Ela, but that Peter had Ela to wife and Morice had Alice. Ralph denied this, and appealed to a jury, which is to be summoned for the Quindene of Hillary
