IRHB comments

Note that in IRHB entry 1240 - Sir Robert le Hod witness to charter, the surname is spelt with a "d". Macray, in his index,[2] treats these two R. Hods/Hotes as one and the same person.[3] "Mapeldreham" is Mapledurham, an Oxfordshire village on the banks of the Thames. This Robert Hote/Hode has not been noted in previous studies.
