his statement, you can discuss it with him.

Your pedantic fixation on this one phrase does not speak highly of your
interest in solving the underlying issue which is whether Henry V ever
took a title
with direct regard to Normandy.

That is an issue only for you. You have not been able to produce any
document where Henry V used such title. Your logic seems to be: "Henry V
conquiered Normandy, so certainly he must have taken a new title". Why? At
the time, Henry V claimed to be the king of France: he did not need an other
title.

Sitat:
So far I have produced several contemporary
documents on the issue

You have produce no quotation of a contemporary document where Henry V would
be given any particular title relating to Normandy.

Sitat:
and you have produced exactly zero.

The ball is in your court.

You claim Henry V took a new title when he occupated Normandy. What is your
source for that? The ball is and has always been in your court.

If Mr Johnson doesn't know Henry V calls himself "King of France" until the

speak of English literature since he seems to have never open Shakespeare.


And you need training in basic manners.
I never said I did not know that he calls himself King of France.
We are speaking specifically about what he claims his legal basis is for
granting land in Normandy to his followers. The only way to determine that is by
examining the documents of those grants.
You my friend seem to be the one of the rudest contributors to this list.

As far as I can say, Henry VI only used the titles "king of France and
England and Lord of Ireland" from 1415 until the treaty of Troyes (1420),
and then "King of England, Heir of the kingdom of France and Lord of
Ireland" or "King of England, Heir and Regent of the Kingdom of France and
Lord of Ireland", without any additional title.

So was Henry VI really King while his father was yet living? Henry VI was
born in 1421 according to "Heraldry of the Royal Families of Europe" by Jiri
Louda and Michael Maclagan. I assume you mean Henry V.
And you again make statements like the above evidently about Henry V (not
VI) without ANY documentation to support them. Forgive me if that leaves me

You make statements like "no King of England ever took the title of Duke of
Normandy after 1259 and that is a Fact"

I produce a document showing that Henry in 1262 did in fact called himself
Dux Norm and you completely ignore it. And that my friend is a fact.

I ask for what is your basis for this statement that no King of England ever
took that title. Knowing of course that to make such a statement you must
have actually preused every single document signed by every single monarch of
England in order to draw your conclusion. And yet what we find is you can quote
exactly one single document. Interesting that on the basis of one document
you can make such a statement. I suppose this means you're an expert in
history.

I point to your statement that "because I am French I know a bit about French
history". Quite a bit of puffery there. I suppose because I am an American
I know everything about American history and can make statements like "No US
President ever called himself the Queen of Bavaria. And that is a fact."

Your facts lack substance. When I point them out you proceed to a series of
insults, claiming I know nothing of Shakespeare, or English literature, or
French history, or what a valid source is. This is argument ad hominem and it
doesn't stand. If you have a valid argument than I'm sure we'd all love to hear
it. So far, your argument is show me the proof of your statements. And yet,
I have never said "and that is a fact" as YOU have. So I'm sure it's quite
plain to listeners, that your statements should each be taken with a grain of
salt, as any particular one of them might stand on ..... nothing, just your own
unfounded opinion.

There is no point to continuing this discussion unless you are going to start
quoting sources to support your position, as I have. It is true that I have
not yet found a source that specifically calls Henry V the Duke of Normandy,
however argument from silence is not convincing. The truth is I have not found
any source where Henry V is actually granting land IN Normandy to anybody,
and it is precisely those documents that could reliably be used to settle this
debate.

In addition, Normandy did not revert to France after Henry V died. It was
under English domination for quite a time after. And on the basis of what?
That the overlord (Governor) of Normandy was styled Regent of France? I do not
believe we have conclusively proven that as of yet. The number of citations so
far posted is too low to come to that conclusion.

In order to have a capital, would not "Northern France" have to be a
political entity? Normandy was, thus Rouen could be the capital of
Normandy. France was, but its capital is Paris. Does Britannica have an
entry for this entity of Northern France? I think our author of the
Britannica article has slipped up.

And no, I don't think it is important enough to write to him about it.

Yes I agree with you.
First I would like to point out the following:
the quote does not say "Rouen, capital of Northern France..."
but rather "Rouen, capital of northern France..."

Can anyone spot the difference?
The word "northern" is not capitalized. This implies that the usage of the phrase "northern France" is not intended to denote a proper name.

That is why one suggestion I had already posted was that the author was using the phrase figuratively and not literally.

Like calling New Orleans in 1820 the "capital of the West US". Not that it really was a political capital, but rather that it was a cultural capital.

And my defense of the professor is that he is an expert in such things, acknowledge not just by the University of Bristol, but by the editors of the EB. I would say his words would stand in higher regard than the average internet citation for that fact alone. In addition, he is the author of a number of books on this period, as you can readily determine by doing a google search on his name and counting how many times he is cited with bibliographic references.

Leo has pointed out another solution, that this may be a typographical error and thus might be intended to read "A capital of northern France" or "A capital IN northern France". This is also a possible solution.

At any rate, I think this horse is dead.

later became "dux Normanni[a]e" (duke of Normandy).

Dear Will et als,
A major glitch in this document. Edward III was
King of England in 1334, not Henry, though Henry VI was King of England and had
been crowned King of France as well ( The only One to actually be so crowned,
though I think every King from Edward III to King George II who ruled over
England also declared themselves to be King of France regardless of the
political realities of their time. Edward III could almost have made a case for his
own overlordship of France between the capture of King Jean II of France at
the Battle of Poitiers and 1364, when that King died at Edward III`s court,
a closely guarded and well treated ` guest ` of Edward.
sincerely,

In case anyone is confused, this must be a document of 1334 reciting a
charter of Henry II - as the references to his grandfather King Henry and
his uncle Earl Robert (of Gloucester) make clear.

So far using all these variant spellings I have only found three Latin documents naming Henry III Duke of Normandy. I was really expecting to find a lot more.
Each of the three use a different form
Dux Norm'
Dux Norman'
dux Normannorum

I also tried variations on comes, princeps, marchio and got nothing on those.

Here is the full list of his titles from these three
1) H. Dei gratia Rex Anglorum dominus Hibernie Dux Norm' et Aquit' Comes
2) Henry' Rex Angl' Dux Norman' & Acquietan' & Comes Androg' Ep'o Exon & Iustic' & Baronibus & Vic' & ministris & fidelibus suis Franc' & Angl' & Wallens' & Cornub' & Devon' salutem:

As I mentioned previously, the second of these must be Henry II, not Henry
III, and I believe the inclusion of "count of Anjou" in the third example
also makes it Henry II.

In the first, something has been omitted after "Comes" - presumably
"Andegavorum" again, in which case this is Henry II too.

There are not likely to be documents in English archives, showing up on
A2A, containing these - from the time of William the Conqueror onwards,
"dux" was almost invariably the title used by the rulers of Normandy
descended from him, and even that would not appear in a great many

Hello John,

This evening I arrived at the thread which you originated.

Rosie, Chris et al provided you with the proof you needed.

The following should be of interest to you.

8 Mar 1422/3 Calendar of Close Rolls 1 Henry VI p. 29
To the escheator in Cambridgeshire. Order to give William son and
heir of William Heroun seisin of the manor of Crauden in Crauden, a
messuage, 40 acres of land and 8 acres of meadow in Malketon, a messuage
and 30 acres of land in Aruyngton parcel of the said manor, and a
messuage and 40 acres of land in Wyndey ; as it is found by inquisition,
taken before John Wynter escheator of King Henry IV, that Margaret
sometime wife of Roger Heroun knight at her death held for life the said
manor of that king as of the honour of Peverell, extending into
Malketon, Aruyngton and Wendeye, and the messuages and lands aforesaid,
with reversion to the said William the son, being then within age ; and
by another inquisition, taken before John Bury the late king’s
escheator, it is found that [s]he held the same for life, by name of the
manor of Crauden with appurtenances only, by grant of Roger Nicholson to
her, by name of Margaret late the wife of Roger Heroun knight, with
remainder to William Heroun son and heir of the said Roger and to his
heirs, that William son of Roger died long before her death, having
issue William Heroun knight now living, that the reversion belongs to
William the son, and that the premises are held of others than the king
; and William the son proved his age before John Rodes late mayor of
Newcastle-upon-Tyne and the late king’s escheator therein, and the king
has taken his fealty, and for 6s. 8d. paid in the hanaper has respited
his homage until Whitsuntide next.

Although it remains unsaid, I reckon we can assume that William, son and
heir of Roger Heron, was the son of an unknown wife previous to Margaret
Hastings.

I will send you a rundown of the generations by another (lengthy) post.

Subject: Possible CP correction: Margaret (? Hastings) (Heron) Blaket
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

I think CP, in one of its Heron articles, discusses a Roger Heron (d.
by 1400), who married a woman named Margaret (no surname provided),
who remarried to a John Blaket in the decade 1400-1410.

Nichols' _Leicestershire_, 2 pt. 2, pedigree chart of "Martival and
Hesilrige," identifies this Margaret as Margaret Hastings, daughter of
Sir Ralph Hastings by his wife (of whom Margaret was the heiress)
Isabel Saddington.

Nichols' chart says that Margaret's second husband was "John Brocket,"
perhaps an understandable mistake for "John Blaket." It also shows
that Margaret's only child and heir was Isabel Heron, an ancestor
somehow of the Hesilrige family of Leicestershire.

I know that Nichols tends to be unreliable in the earlier generations
in some of his charts, so this is just mentioned as a clue ...

The Parliamentary biographies for the reigns of H!V and HV give a deal of
detail about Sir John Blaket of Icomb and his first wife Margaret Hastings, widow
of Sir Roger Heron (identified as the eldest son of William, Lord Heron).
Apparently Margaret (died 1407) had a grandson William Heron. She had dower in
the manor of Croydon, and after her death Sir John Blaket had a royal grant
enabling him to retain that manor during the minority of her grandson.

Subject: Questions concerning Bartrum


Greetings

Have unearthed some photocopies of pages that I once
made of Bartrum's Welsh Genealogies 300-1400 (alas, I
never copied the entire book when I had access) and
have a question concerning his listings concerning
wives. If anyone has a copy and can look at it, look
at "Iestyn 1", page 542, for example. Bartrum lists
two wives (or perhaps, to be more correct, partners)
for Gwrgan ap Ithel whom he letters "a" and "b".
Likewise, he lists three partners for Iestyn ap Gwrgan
whom he letters "a", "b", and "c". Yet nowhere does
he seem to indicate which of these women is the mother
of any of the children indicated for the respective
men. Is this simply because it is not known who was
the mother of whom, or am I somehow reading the charts
incorrectly? I have noticed similar treatments on
other pages. Also, on the same aforementioned Iestyn
1 page, he lists a Sara ferch Morgan ap Meurig ap
Gwrgan as the wife of Payn I Tuberville, but then adds
the parenthetical comment "(fictitious?)". Is he
questioning the existence of Sara or the marriage or
both?

Thanks in advance for your help.

all extant royal houses, as far as I know. The reason
is the fact that his gdaughter Valensa Doria married

How Wrong Wjhonson can be.

Sadly (for me) I miss out on many of the earlier descendants which cuts off
many other lines to the present.

I would say that all Crowned heads of Europe are descendants and many many
more titled people.

Lets start with a few gateway ancestors to Australia for a change
Francis William Fry, Alice Horatio Fry, Henry Philip Fry, Stephen Henry Fry,
Sir Alexander Cockburn-Campbell 2nd Bt, Marshall Waller Clifton and his ten
children.

Helene Zourabichvili, Historian and Member Academie Francaise.

Howard Dean III, Eleanor Roosevelt, Ernst Flagg Henderson Jr (Founder of the
Sheraton Hotel Chain) Wernher von Braun, Caesar von Hofacker (involved in an
assassination attempt on Hitler), Sir Winston Churchill, Paola Queen of
Belgium, and her daughter-in-law Mathilde d'Udekem d'Acoz, Alice Keppel
(mistress of Edward VII and ancestor of Camilla)
the late Queen-Mother, Lady Diana Spencer, Sarah Ferguson, Camilla
Parker-Bowles, Aga Khan IV, Prince Henrik of Denmark, Brooke Shields.

And American Gateway ancestors
Lady Christina Stewart, Andrew Monroe, John Orr, Sarah Blair, James
Cuthbert, Robert Baillie, James Dundas, Thomas Dundas.

And lets not forget Sam Sloan, Gilbert von Studnitz, Brigitte Gastel Lloyd.

I think Branca Doria's descendants can be found everywhere and in all
classes of Societies.
Best wishes.

I am wondering, though, since Gian Galeazzo Visconti married his 1st
cousin, Caterina Visconti, daughter of Bernabo, what the in-breeding
did to the descendants. Does murdering one's father-in-law (ignoring
the fact he was also his uncle) run in the blood - or genes?

Was there a dispensation for the marriage of Gian Galeazzo and
Caterina?

Just out of interest, can anyone recall an instance where a medieval
monarch used another title after accession to the throne for which
homage would have been owed to himself/herself?

As far as I can recall, the kingd of France did that only when the
fiefs in question were their be right of their wife and so were not
exactly merged in the Crown. For exemple:
- Louis VII used the title "Duke of Aquitaine" even after his father's
death, when he was the only king, and until his separation from his
wife.
- IIRC, Philip IV used the titles of "Count of Champagne and of Brie"
until his wife's death in the acts relating to Champagne, but I must
check that.

Of course, the king used titles like "dauphin of Viennois" or "Count
of Provence" in their acts relating to those possessions, but those
were not fiefs for which they could have claimed homage.

Dear John,

Here is the Fitzwilliam documentation I promised earlier.

Sir Brian de Thornhill (1298-1369) married Joan Fitzwilliam (ca. 1320-Feb.
22, 1382/3).
They were married before 1347.

claim to lands and tenements in the fee of Gomersal' (Gomersall, Yk) which he
had previously granted to Brian and Joan, and also to an annual rent of 12d
from lands there.

Joan was the daughter of Isabel D'Eincourt(?) and Sir William Fitzwilliam.

Baildon & the Baildons by William Paley Baildon, Chapter Eleven - The

Scope and Content
Thomas Flemyngs of Clifton to John Fitzwilliam, of all burdens, dues and
services due in his 3 weekly court for the manor of Wath.

For a red rose at the Nativity of St John the Baptist (24 June).

Witnesses: Bryan de Thornhill, William de Fyncheden, Elis de Bryton, John de
Dranfeld, John de Wodehall de Wath.

At Emley, Sunday before St Gregory (12 March), 1343/4.

The above show that Isabel D'Eincourt married Sir William FitzWilliam between
1317 and before 17 December 1324. As John Fitzwilliam came into the lands in
Darthyngton, Emley and Sprotborough, it is apparent that there was no male
issue of the second marriage. It is significant that the executors of the will
of Isabel D'Eincourt were her stepson John Fitzwilliam, Brian de Thornhill who
married her daughter Joan, and William Trussebut.

As to the birth date of Joan Fitzwilliam we know that she was married before
1347 to Sir Brian de Thornhill. From the ages of her children Margaret, who
married Sir Gerard de Ufflete [see below] and Simon de Thornhill who we have
recorded in documents as early as 1369 [see original post] they were probably
born 1340-1350. The marriage settlement for Margaret gives us a date of
1357-1358 but many of these settlements occurred when the children were adolescents
which is no indication of the age of the parents.

Reference: DD/SR/209/124
Creation dates: 1357 - 1358


Scope and Content
Chirograph: Marriage settlement - Henry de Nuhill clerk to Brian of Thornhill
on marriage of Gerald son of Gerard de Ufflet and Margaret daughter of Brian,
lands etc in Swanland and Ufflet.

Joan died in 1382/3 and had her first children 1340-1350 it would appear that
she was born no earlier than 1320. As for the following document:

Baildon & the Baildons by William Paley Baildon, Chapter Eleven - The
Fitzwilliams of Emley and Sprotborough, page 354:

1327 Sir William FitzWilliam of Hemeley, John his son and Brian de Thornhill,
fled for the death of Sir Richard Plaiz, killed at Helaw. [Exchequer K.R.
Misc., bundle 904 No. 1]

Joan Fitzwilliam may have been married to Sir Brian de Thornhill as a child
[at least age 7].
It is obvious from the fine cited in Thoroton that all the Fitzwilliam
children were born before 1324-1325 when the fine above was recorded.

If Isabel D'Eincourt were the mother of Joan Fitzwilliam then there would be
a line to Henry I through her mother Isabel de Mohun.

Henry I
/
Robert de Caen de Mellent
/
Maud Fitzrobert of Gloucester
/
Hugh de Keveliock, Earl of Chester
/
Agnes le Meschines
/
William de Ferrers
/
Isabel de Ferrers
/
Isabel de Mohun
/
Isabel D'Eincourt

There is no documentation showing Joan Fitzwilliam to be the child of anyone
but Isabel D'Eincourt and chronologically it is very probable that she was her
daughter.

The Savoy family started claiming the titular throne of Armenia with
Louis, Duke of Savoy (d 1465), husband of Anna di Lusignano (together

mention of it (in the short form of "rex sard. cypr. et hier.") until
the proclamation of the kingdom of Italy in 1861. After that date, the
only title used was "re d'Italia", but I do not think the claim was
formally abandoned.

Before someone asks how on earth a claim to the throne of Armenia could
pass to the Dukes of Savoy, I'll try to explain (but it is most likely
that I will make an error or two...):

A good place to start is Stephane, Lord of the Mountains, d. 1165. See
http://www.genealogics.org/getperson.php?personID=I00139819&tree=LEO>.
He was succeeded first by his eldest son Rupert III (1145-1187).
Initially, his two daughters Alix and Philippa inherited the realm, but
their uncle, Leo I set them aside, and took the title "King of Armenia"
upon his coronation in 1186. He died in 1219. His eldest daughter was a
that time Queen-Consort of Jerusalem, and his second daughter, Zabel
(1212/3-1252), succeeded in Armenia. Her second husband was the Armenia
nobleman Hethum of Brabaron, who reigned (joinly with his wife)
1226-1269. They were succeeded by their son Leo II (1236-1269-1289). His
son Thoros reigned 1293-1294, and his son Leo III reigned 1301-1307. (I
am not sure who reigned in between.) Leo III died childless in 1307.

After this, the succession is quite mangeled. You'll find some info here
http://www.nationmaster.com/encyclopedia/Kingdom-of-Armenia>.

It eventually ended up with the Kings of Cyprus (together with many of
the other crusader titles).

Then, a bit later, Anne, daughter of King Janus of Cyprus and Armenia,
married Duke Louis of Savoie (1413-1465). Their second son Louis, Count
of Geneve, married his cousin Charlotte of Lusignan, and then claimed
the Kingship for himself. Louis died in 1482, and Charlotte died 1487. I
believe she had bequated the island of Cyprus to the Republic of Venice.
However, her cousin, the Duke of Savoy now claimed the titled once
beloning to the Kings of Cyprus ("King of Jerusalem, Cyprus and Armenia").


Is this so-called Little Armenia, the Armenian state founded in Cilicia in
the 11th century or Great Armenia, the older Armenia kingdom in eastern
Anatolia (of which modern Armenia is the rump survivor)?

Hmmm.... The territory whose crown is claimed by the Savoy, is a part
of Turkey, isn't it?

"Their" Armenia has nothing to do with the modern Republic of Armenia,
except name.

Dear MichaelAnne,

Many thanks for that superb and detailed post!

In re: the placement of Joan FitzWilliam, wife of Sir Brian
de Thornhill, my prior post in the thread seems to gone astray -
I have copied it below. The involvement of Sir Brian de
Thornhill in 1327 with Sir William FitzWilliam and his son John
(coupled with Sir Brian being an executor of the will of Lady
Isabel (D'eyncourt) FitzWilliam in 1348) make it rather certain
that Sir Brian' wife was a daughter of Sir William FitzWilliam
and Lady Isabel, and not a granddaughter.

On the subject of a possible descent through the Mohun family
from Henry I of England, there is a problem concerning the
traditional position (see CP IV:120, sub _Deincourt_) that
Isabel de Mohun, wife of Sir Edmund Deincourt, was a daughter of
Sir Reynold de Mohun by his 2nd wife Isabel de Ferrers. Chris
Phillips noted a while back (medievalgenealogy.org.uk) that the
Ferrers ancestry for Isabel de Mohun is erroneous:

'The issue of Isabel de Ferrers had certainly failed by April
1327, when an inquisition was taken after the death of John
Meriet, who had married her granddaughter. But at this time at
least two of Edmund's children were alive or had surviving issue
(his son John and his daughter Margaret - see Willoughby, volume
12, part 2, page 658). Clearly, either his wife Isabel was not
the daughter of Isabel de Ferrers, or he had another wife who
was the mother of these children. '

It would seem then that Isabel de Mohun was likely a daughter
of Hawise, daughter of Geoffrey fitz Piers, Earl of Essex (d.
1213) by his 2nd wife Aveline de Clare. This fouls up the Henry
I descent: however, via the Tosny family there is a descent from
Lambert of Lens and Adelaide, sister of the Conqueror, as well as
from Richard III, Duke of Normandy via the vicomtes of the
Bessin.

Cheers,

John

Dear MichaelAnne,

Good to hear from you; and, thanks in advance for your plans
re: posting on Dronsfeld, Wentworth & c. as relates to the
Thornhills of Thornhill.

As to the issue of the parentage of Joan (FitzWilliam) de
Thornhill, I had not dealt with the placement and chronology as
per the source (Wallop) cited by Brice Clagett; however, it did
seem more likely that Sir Brian de Thornhill's wife Joan would
have been a daughter of Sir William FitzWilliam, and not a
granddaughter. I cited in my post the following from the PRO:

record dated 1327:
' Gaol delivery at York Castle, Wm son of William of Emley,
kt, John his son and Brian of Thornhill, accused of killing
Richard Playce at Dringhouses, put themselves on the county*

* [should read 'on the country']

For Sir Brian to have been 'mixed up' with his father-in-law
and brother-in-law in some possibly shady business ca. 1327 would
seem to make more sense than with his father-in-law and
grandfather-in-law. John FitzWilliam (murdered in 1385?), son
of John, was born in 1327 according to CP, so again it would seem
more likely Sir Brian de Thornhill was married to his aunt, not
his sister.

Dear John,

Here is the Fitzwilliam documentation I promised earlier.

Sir Brian de Thornhill (1298-1369) married Joan Fitzwilliam (ca. 1320-Feb.
22, 1382/3).
They were married before 1347.

Nottinghamshire Archives: Savile of Rufford: Deeds and Estate Papers

claim to lands and tenements in the fee of Gomersal' (Gomersall, Yk) which he
had previously granted to Brian and Joan, and also to an annual rent of 12d
from lands there.

Joan was the daughter of Isabel D'Eincourt(?) and Sir William Fitzwilliam.

Baildon & the Baildons by William Paley Baildon, Chapter Eleven - The
Fitzwilliams of Emley and Sprotborough, page 355:

Agnes. Sir William Deyncourt and Sir John Deyncourt, her Godson [filiolus].
Executors her son Sir John FitzWilliam, Sir William Trussebut and Sir Brian de
Thornhill. [Testamenta Ebor. Vol. 1, No. 50]


<<<<<<< regretable snip of useful material >>>>>>>

Sitat:

The above show that Isabel D'Eincourt married Sir William FitzWilliam between
1317 and before 17 December 1324. As John Fitzwilliam came into the lands in
Darthyngton, Emley and Sprotborough, it is apparent that there was no male
issue of the second marriage. It is significant that the executors of the will
of Isabel D'Eincourt were her stepson John Fitzwilliam, Brian de Thornhill who
married her daughter Joan, and William Trussebut.

As to the birth date of Joan Fitzwilliam we know that she was married before
1347 to Sir Brian de Thornhill. From the ages of her children Margaret, who
married Sir Gerard de Ufflete [see below] and Simon de Thornhill who we have
recorded in documents as early as 1369 [see original post] they were probably
born 1340-1350. The marriage settlement for Margaret gives us a date of
1357-1358 but many of these settlements occurred when the children were adolescents
which is no indication of the age of the parents.

Joan died in 1382/3 and had her first children 1340-1350 it would appear that
she was born no earlier than 1320. As for the following document:

Baildon & the Baildons by William Paley Baildon, Chapter Eleven - The
Fitzwilliams of Emley and Sprotborough, page 354:

1327 Sir William FitzWilliam of Hemeley, John his son and Brian de Thornhill,

Joan Fitzwilliam may have been married to Sir Brian de Thornhill as a child
[at least age 7].
It is obvious from the fine cited in Thoroton that all the Fitzwilliam
children were born before 1324-1325 when the fine above was recorded.

If Isabel D'Eincourt were the mother of Joan Fitzwilliam then there would be

Dear John,

Thanks for the information on the Mohun descent. I must have missed the post
from Chris and will get it from the archives. I wanted to mention one other
thing in reference to my post of yesterday. It appears that Margaret
Fitzwilliam who married William Bingham must be a definite daughter of Isabel
D'Eincourt and Sir William Fitzwilliam. Margaret is not mentioned with the other
Fitzwilliam children in the fine of 18 Edward II and she is mentioned in her
mother's will of 1348. I erroneously stated that all the children of Sir
William Fitzwilliam were mentioned in this fine and therefore born before
1324-1325, but missed Margaret Fitzwilliam in my analysis. If anyone has more
information on Margaret Fitzwilliam and her descendants I would be greatly
interested.

Thanks for opening this discussion. The Wentworth family of Emsall is
descended from Brian de Thornhill and Joan Fitzwilliam through Jane Mirfield who
married Thomas Wentworth,esq., North Emsall, co. York. Jane Mirfield was the
daughter of Oliver Mirfield by Isabel Saville, daughter of Sir John Saville
by Alice Gascoigne.

Thomas Wentworth and Jane Mirfield are ancestral to both Thomas Wentworth of
Charles County, Maryland and the New England Wentworth line as their eldest
son Roger Wentworth is the direct ancestor of Thomas Wentworth and their son
Oliver Wentworth is the ancestor of the New England Wentworth family.

Dear John,

The marriage range is based on the fact that the document you cited is the
first grant of Emley to the D'Eincourt family. The next document we have and
the first one where Isabel D'Eincourt is called wife of Sir William
Fitzwilliam is dated 17 December 1324. This is why I cited these dates. Thanks for
the detailed fine. This needs further discussion. As I stated in my previous
post only Margaret Fitzwilliam can be documented as an actual daughter of
Isabel D'Eincourt. The other daughters are based upon chronology and Joan and
Isabel seem the most likely to be daughters of the second marriage.

I've checked the chronology of the Deincourt and Mohun families. If
Edmund Deincourt's wife Isabel was the daughter of Reynold de Mohun,
then she almost certainly would be by his second marriage to Isabel de
Ferrers. If doesn't seem possible for Edmund's wife to have been a
daughter of Reynold de Mohun's lst wife, Hawise Fitz Geoffrey.

However, as you note, Complete Peerage sub Derby, vol. 4, pg. 199,
states that the issue of Isabel de Ferrers, wife of Reynold de Mohun,
failed in 1324. This statement stands in conflict with the account of
the Deincourt family in the same volume, which shows that the
descendants of Isabel de Ferrers' daughter, Isabel (de Mohun)
Deincourt, continued beyond 1324. I checked Complete Peerage, vol.
14, for a possible correction to this matter but found nothing under
either Deincourt or Derby.

VCH Bedford, 2 (1908): 351 sub Luton shows that Isabel de Ferrers'
share of Luton, co. Bedford fell to her her son, William's daughter,
Mary de Mohun, wife of John de Meriet. On John de Meriet's death in
1327, the Mohun share of Luton was redistributed to the heirs of
Isabel de Ferrers' sisters, suggesting that her issue had indeed
failed by that date. VCH Bedford cites as its source, Cal. IPM, 1
Edward III, No. 51, which I haven't examined.

If correct, then it is clear that Edmund Deincourt's wife was not
Isabel de Ferrers' daughter, or if he did marry Isabel's daughter, her
issue likewise failed in or before 1327. This would mean that Edmund
Deincourt either never married Isabel de Ferrers' daughter, or that he
had his surviving children by a different wife of whom we have no
knowledge.

I've now looked at John de Meriet's inquisitions post mortem (Calendar of
Inquisitions Post Mortem, vol.7, no 46; pp.20-22). It does seem clear from
these that, as Complete Peerage states, the descendants of Isabel de Ferrers
were extinct by this time. John was holding lands of the inheritance of his
dead wife Mary, by the courtesy of England, in several counties, including
Bedfordshire. In these counties, the heirs are said to be Henry [fitz Piers]
and John de Beauchamp the elder of Somerset (these two being the
representatives of Maud de Kyme), John de Bohun of Sussex, John de Mohun* of
Dunster and Hugh de Mortimer of Chelmarsh. (*John de Mohun appears here -
confusingly - in his capacity as the grandson of John de Mohun, who married
Joan de Ferrers, another of the sisters. This grandfather John thus married
his stepmother's sister.) These are exactly the heirs we should except from
the table showing the descendants of the Ferrers sisters in Complete
Peerage, vol.4, p.199.

Sitat:
There is another avenue, however, which needs to be examined before we
conclude that Isabel de Ferrers' issue failed before 1327. Sir H.C.
Maxwell Lyte's book, History of Dunster, 1 (1909): 32-33 shows that
Isabel de Ferrers had ten hides of land at Mildenhall, co. Wilts on
her marriage to Reynold de Mohun. He also states that Isabel's son,
Sir William de Mohun, inherited the manors of Mildenhall, in
Wiltshire, and Greywell, in Hampshire "through his mother."

If these statements are correct, then tracing the history of
Mildenhall and Greywell might well be instructive. If the Deincourt
family was later in possession of these estates, then it would appear
that they were probably blood descendants of Isabel (de Ferrers) de
Mohun.

This is slightly more confusing. John de Meriet's Hampshire inquisition post
mortem says that Greywell belong to a certain Reynold de Mohun, to him and
his heirs in fee, and that he gave it to William, his younger son, and the
heirs of his body. After stating that William's two daughters were dead,
leaving no issue, the inquisition adds that through the failure of William's
issue, the manor ought to revert to one John de Mohun, as kinsman and heir
of the said Reynold. John (aged 40 years and more) is said to be the son of
John, who was the son of John, who was the son of Reynold. (Again, this
agrees with the table in Complete Peerage - judging from the article on
Mohun, John must actually have been in his late 50s.)

A similar statement is made about the manor of Mildenhall in Wiltshire. (Not
realising this was the Mildenhall in Wiltshire, I looked in Copinger's
Manors of Suffolk (vol.4, p.188). Copinger made the same mistake (!), and
refers to an associated order to the escheator (Close Rolls 1 Edward III, pt
ii 24). Copinger was puzzled by which of the Mildenhall manors this was -
not surprising, as it was a manor in a different Mildenhall, in a different
county!)

Were it not for Maxwell Lyte's statement that Mildenhall came to the Mohuns
on Reynold's marriage with Isabel de Ferrers, those records would read as
implying that it was originally Mohun property that was settled on a younger
son, and when his issue became extinct reverted back to the head of the
family.

At any rate, it does seem clear that the Deincourts, and John de Willoughby,
could not be descendants of Isabel de Ferrers. This means that the proposal
that Iseult, the wife of Hugh Audley, was the daughter of Hugh de Mortimer
and Agatha de Ferrers doesn't account for James Audley's stated relationship
to John de Willoughby. (In fact - if we assume that Iseult had _some_ sort
of relationship with the Mortimers - it accounts for the relationship with
only one of the four men mentioned - Ralph de Ferrers.)

Dear MichaelAnne,

Do you have a source for Margaret marrying William Bingham? I ask because
I have this Margaret married to Sir Henry Pierrepont. The source is pretty
dodgy though being a 1913 history of the Pierreponts which makes Margaret
the daughter of Sir William Fitzwilliams (sic) and "Maude, dau. of Edmund,
Baron Deincourt" so hardly the most reliable.

If Margaret did marry Sir Henry Pierrepont I think she is ancestral to the
Sir Henry Pierrepont d. 1452 who married Ellen Longford of the Longfords
recently discussed in this forum. Although again, the sources for this are
poor.

Fitzgerald of LackaghThanks for the information on Fitzgerald of Lackagh. I had suspected that in this case Paget might be right and CP wrong. I guess this is a new (albeit minor) correction to CP 4:173 in that the father of Isabella Fitzgerald was a brother, not a son, of Gerald, 8th Earl of Kildare.

Now the challenge for me is to find a copy of the cited source, the Kildare Artchaeological Society Journal. Even the FHL has only a very incomplete run (lacking vol. 1), and all the other (U.S.) libraries that appear to have it are in the Midwest or East Coast. Oh, well....

Subject: Fitzgerald of Lackagh


Isabella Fitzgerald, Baroness Delvin, was a daughter of Sir Thomas
Fitzgerald (c. 1458-1487), of Lackagh Castle, Co. Kildare (which he
built), second brother of the 8th Earl of Kildare, and his wife, Elizabeth
Preston, daughter of Robert Preston, 4th Lord and 1st Viscount Gormanston,
and his wife, Jane Molyneux.

Sir Thomas was briefly Lord Chancellor of Ireland in 1483, was Lambert
Simnel's earliest and chief supporter in Dublin, and was killed as one
of the commanders at the Battle of Stoke, June 14, 1487.

The best source for his family is "The Fitzgeralds of Lackagh," by
Lord Walter Fitzgerald, in volume 1 of the Kildare Archaeological Journal.

Dear Peter, et al.,

I think there's may be a problem between your ISP (email reader)
and the font displaying the table Stewart shows. AOL does the same
(the display in the newsgroup on Google, or through Rootsweb, clears
up the problem). If you copy the message, and convert it (either in
email or a program such as Word or WordPerfect) to "New Courier"
[10-space], you'll get the chart as Stewart intended. Baldwin Balzo
then comes across as being on the illegitimate end of the dotted
line....

On another matter brought up in your post, I thought some time
ago re: the Rosala/Susanna issue there was some explanation, other
than two distinct names being assigned to this lady during her
lifetime. You noted in your response to Stewart,

'...Rozala, the widow of Count Arnulf II of Flanders and later
(as I think) wife of King Robert II, is problematically named
"Susanna regina" (Queen Susanna).'

I believe the explanation is a geographic one. The full text
from the charter of 988 might validate or disprove this idea (likely
it does neither), but I would suggest that Rozala's Piedmontese
origin gave rise to her being referred to as being from Susa, i.e.
'the Susan queen' [perhaps better in Latin as "regina Susana"]. For
what little we likely know of Rozala, she may well have been born in
the town of Susa....

I don't understand what you mean about the table - I viewed this in a
fixed-width font as intended by Stewart, and Balduin Balzo is connected
by a dotted line to the solid line from which his brothers depend, with
a common link to their father. Failing an explanation, I don't take this
to indicate illegitimacy, especially since a different mother is not
even vestigially represented on the table, but rather an uncertain
relationship.

As to "Susanna", this certainly is not an adjectival term meaning she
was born in Susa - there are several sources establishing that this was
an alternative name of Countess Rozala (see below), and the problem I
referred to is with her title as queen on 1 April 988, not with her
given name. The question is vastly more complex than the facts of the
lady's origin: for one thing, she had grown up in Germany, probably at
the imperial court, and not even in Italy much less in Susa. Her birth
is not at all likely to have occurred there.

For Susanna as her name, see 'Annales Elnonenses' in _Les annales de
Saint-Pierre de Gand et de Saint-Amand_, edited by Philip Grierson
(Brussels, 1937) p. 152: "Arnulfus iunior uxorem duxit filiam Berengeri
regis Susannam" (trans: Arnulf the younger married King Berengar's
daughter Susanna); 'Genealogia comitum Flandriae Bertiniana", edited by
Ludwig Bethmann, MGH SS IX p. 306: "Arnulfus....duxit filiam Berengeri
regis Langobardorum, Ruzelam quae et Susanna" (trans: Arnulf....married
Rozala, also known as Susanna, daughter of Berengar, king of the
Lombards); and 'Vita Bertulfi Renticensis' (excerpts), edited by Oswald
Holder-Egger, MGH SS XV part 2 p. 638: "Rozala....post mortem Arnulfi
principis Roberto regi Francorum nupsit, et Susanna dicta mutato nomine,
regina regnavit" (trans: Rozala....after the ruler Arnulf's death
married Robert, king of the Franks and, called by the alternative name
Susanna, reigned as queen).

She was also given the name Susanna by King Henri I in a diploma of
1038, after her death: "regina diuae memoriae Susanna", see _Diplomata
belgica..._, cited in my previous post, p. 197 no. 92.

The puzzle of the celebrated charter dated 1 April 988 is involved more
with politics and diplomacy than with genealogy, and would not be a
topic of interest to many here. Ferdinand Lot considered that the
document must have belonged to 989, just over a year after the death of
Rozala Susanna's first husband in 988, taken to have occurred on 30
March [see _Études sur le règne de Hugues Capet et la fin du Xe siècle_
BEHE 147 (Paris, 1903) p. 4, note 2], although he also followed the
unconvincing suggestion of the RHGF editors that as a king's daughter
she might have used the title 'regina' during her first marriage.
However, this dating does not account for the long introductory text of
the charter, meditating for half of its length on mortality, which was
clearly more suitable in the mourning period soon after Count Arnulf
II's demise than for remembrance soon after the anniversary.

Père Anselme confused this question, stating that Count Arnulf II of
Flanders was buried on 23 March 988 in the chapel of Saint-Laurent at
Mont Blandin abbey in Ghent, and that his tomb was only finished on 30
March of that year, causing some authors to mistake this for the date of
his death; however, a source was not given for this information [see
_Histoire généalogique et chronologique de la Maison royale de
France..._, third edition, 9 vols (Paris, 1726-33) II p. 715]. Guillaume
de Jumièges was cited at the end of the article on Arnulf II, but no
other medieval sources for details about him. Elsewhere in Anselme it is
claimed that Rosala (named Roselle) was a widow on 23 March 989 [op cit
I p. 71].

I think Arnulf II was dead by 23 March 988, and that his widow did not
marry King Robert II until some tme between March and November 989, a
year or so after she was titled "regina" in Flanders as a deliberate
rebuff to Hugo Capet, who was at the time prematurely seeking her hand
in marriage for his young son.

looking at Tanner's table of the counts of Flanders, I see that in
addition to the sons Arnulf and Adalulf, she gives Baldwin II of
Flanders four or five additional children by Elstrude, namely
Elfstrude, Ealswid, Ermengarde (with one of the last two as wife of
Hilduin, count of Tournai, with a question mark either indicating that
the attribution is uncertain, or that which sister is uncertain), a
child "X" (mother of abbot Hildebrand of St. Bertin, known to be a
nephew of Arnulf I - it is not clear whether or not she is allowing
for the possibility that "X" is the same as one of the other
children), and Albert provost (given as a legitimate son). She also
supplies Baldwin II with an illegitimate daughter Ricsinde, wife of
Evrard, advocate of St. Bertin, and mother of Evrard, advocate of St.
Bertin, and Adalf [sic], abbot of St. Bertin. Of the above
individuals, Baldwin II, his wife Elstrude, and his sons Arnulf I and

Grazie mille [as they say in Susa] for the added discourse and

The genealogical table from Tanner does have problems to be
sure; the representation of Baldwin Balzo's illegitimacy (use of
the subject dotted line) is a fairly typical if not precise
representation, esp. given that no mother(s) are assigned to the
indicated offspring of Adelolf (or Adalulf).

An earlier problem I noted: Arnulf I of Flanders and Adelolf

On a related note, are there any good sources of information on the
Deincourt family, especially in the 14th century?

My curiousity was aroused by the Deincourt-Fitwilliam connection, as a
son of Thomas Swynford's married a Beatrice Fitzwilliam who was
descended from William Fitzwilliam and Isabelle D'Eincourt. As Thomas
Swynford's sister, Blanche, is often stated as having married a

You've lost me - how are you suggesting that this ancestry helps to
explain the style "Susanna regina" (either the name or title, or both)
adopted by Rozala as the newly widowed countedd of Flanders? Plenty of
other contemporary women as well born as her didn't change their names
and claim a title other than that used by a living or dead husband.

I think the name Susanna and title regina can be accounted for in
several quite plausible ways, and I indicated at the end of my message
the gist of the explanation that I find most convincing - that this was
taken mainly to bolster the position of Flanders in a diplomatic contest
with Hugo Capet. There is a good deal of circumstantial evidence in
favour of this, but the matter has little or no genealogical import.

The received view of the local politics at the time was set out by Jean
Dunbabin in 'The Reign of Arnulf II, Count of Flanders, and its
Aftermath', _Francia_ 16 (1989) pp. 53-65. I don't agree with her, and
will eventually get round to arguing a different case, but this is

Dear Louise and Hap,

You are both correct and I mistakenly stated Margaret Fitzwilliam, daughter
of Sir William Fitzwilliam and Isabel D'Eincourt, married William Bingham. She
was married to Henry Pierpointe making their descendants the only documented
heirs of Isabel D'Eincourt and Sir William Fitzwilliam.

Margaret Fitzwilliam was the only daughter of Sir William Fitzwilliam not
named in the fine of Edward II cited in Thoroton:

Thoroton, Antiquities of Nottinghamshire, Vol. III, page 135: [sub Plumtree]

There was a fine levied, 18 Edward II, between William, son of William, Quer.
and Edmund, parson of the church of Plumtre, deforc. of the manor of Plumtre,
with the Appurtenances, and the advowson of the church of the same manor,
whereby it was settled on the said William Fitz-William, and the heirs of his
body; Remainder to John son of the said William and the heirs male of his;
Remainder to Thomas, brother of John in like fort; Remainder to Joan, Sister of
Thomas, and the heirs male of her body; Remainder to Agnes, and to Isabel, her
sisters respectively in the same manner; remainder to the right heirs of the said
William.

Margaret Fitzwilliam is named in Isabel D'Eincourt's will of 1348 as her
daughter along with the other daughters listed above. Margaret Fitzwilliam must
have been born after 1324-1325.

If you have other information on this line I would appreciate seeing the
descent to the Longford family of Derby.

Isabel Fitzwilliam, sister of Margaret Fitzwilliam, married William Bingham.
As I stated earlier Isabel fits the same chronological probability as Joan
Fitzwilliam that she [Isabel] may also be a daughter of Isabel D'Eincourt.

Sorry for the mixup.

Rozala Susanna's nephew Otto William was never king of the Lombards -
from youth he was considered heir to his step-father's dukedom of
Burgundy, he was titled count of Mâcon & Nevers from the mid-990s, and
failed to establish rights to the dukedom in the struggle against his
aunt's (by then) former husband King Robert II.

The problem with "Susanna regina" is that Rozala was called by this name
and title in an original document that is explicitly & outdoubtedly
dated BEFORE she could have been the wife of Robert.

The name change can be very readily and specifically explained by the
political situation, as I read it, and despite the literal rendering as
"queen" the title is probably better translated as "regent" - in that
sense it is one of at least three examples of its use by a lady of
around the same time whose husband (alive or dead) was not a king.

Dear Louise and everyone,

I thought it would be a good idea if we saw the actual will of Isabel
Fitzwilliam instead of just the summary by Bailidon.

(1) Sir William Fitz William, Lord of Elmley and Sprotborough, and lineal
ancestor of the present Earl Fitz William, to whose pedigree this will makes
numerous and important additions, and affords much authentic information relative
to the rank and wealth of this antient family at its peiod. The testatrix was
one of the family of Deyncourt, and her name was not Maud, but Isabel.--V.
Hunter's South Yorkshire, I. 336, and II. 93.


The date of July 25, 1348 used by Bailidon was the date the will was written
and not the date of death. She also mentions many people not listed in the
summary in the will.

Dear MichaelAnne,

Many thanks (and lots of liniment) for posting the will of Lady Isabel
(D'eincourt) FitzWilliam into this thread.

I think certain individuals require no added identification (e.g. Isabel
herself, her husband the deceased Lord William FitzWilliam of Emley and
Sprotborough). The will does identify John FitzWilliam of Emley (later to
die
in 1349) and Thomas as her sons; her daughter in law, 'Lady Johanna' [aka
Jane
de Reresby); and in order, Margaret, Joan, Isabel and Agnes as her daughters.
Other individuals identified in this will:

1. Sir John FitzWilliam of Emley and Sprotborough, fl. 1327-1385, son of
her son John;
" Johanni et Willielmo filiis Johannis filii mei "
2. William FitzWilliam, brother of #1 John; ibid.
3. Elizabeth FitzWilliam, sister of #1 and #2 above;
" Elizabethae filiae Johannis filii mei "
4. Agnes FitzWilliam, daughter of her son Thomas;
" Agneti filiae Thomae filii mei "
5. William Deincourt, Lord Deincourt (fl. 1300-1364), her nephew;
" Domino Willielmo Deyncourt "
6. John Deincourt, brother of #5, her nephew and godson;
" Domino Johanni Deyncourt filiolo meo "
* 7. Joan de Thornhill, evidently a granddaughter (daughter of her daughter
Joan by Sir Brian de Thornhill);
" Johannae de Trnnhill "
* 8. Elizabeth de Newmarch, evidently a granddaughter (daughter of her
daughter Agnes by Adam de Newmarch);
" Elizabethae filiae Domini Adae de Newemarche "
* 9. John de Thornhill, later a clerk, evidently a grandson (younger son of
her daughter Joan, and brother of #7 above);
" Item Johanni Turnhill XX s "

I would hypothesize that certain individuals (noted above, *) were
grandchildren, to whom Lady Isabel was a godparent - hence the added gifts in
her will. Certain others may well have been godchildren, without a blood
relationship.

Any other individuals I can identify (again not among the obvious), I
will advise.

Thanks again!

Cheers,

John

Does this include the problematic "Matilda regina", wife of Guigues and
focus of so much speculation regarding the name Dauphin?

No, there is a fair possibility that this Matilda had been married to a
king beforehand so I didn't consider her as an example.

The three I was referring to, who used the title "regina" while not the
wife or widow of a king, were Rozala Susanna herself, Emma of Bohemia
(her contemporary) and Matilda of Flanders (her great-granddaughter)
when she was properly duchess of Normandy, before 1066.

The appropriate title for a female termporarily but not in her own right
at the head of a regnum (as Normandy, Flanders and Bohemia were then
acknowledged to be, although not kingdoms) did not become firmly
established until towards the end of the 11th century.

Later on Rozala might have called herself "Susanna marchionissa" or
"comitissa" - or even helpfully "marchiocomitissa" - but none of these
would have proclaimed her authority in a troubled time & place as
effectively as "regina". This is not so much because she would be
assuming the status of a king's wife, as that she would be associating
her eminence in human affairs directly with the untouchable prestige on
a higher plane of the one "queen" whose title was in daily use
everywhere and who was definitely not married to a king: the Virgin
Mary, hailed as queen of heaven, queen of the angels and queen of the
apostles.

The churchmen who accorded & popularised such titles were wily
politicians as well as shameless flatterers. In this case of "regina"
meaning "regent" the practice didn't stick, perhaps in part because it
caused offense on coming to the attention of actual kings' wives.

Hello All,

The following is a corrected pedigree, showing the descent of the late
Queen Mother from Geoffrey 'Plantagenet' through (primarily) FitzWilliam
of Emley and Sprotborough, Thornhill of Thornhill, and Savile of Thornhill.
Note also the descent of Lady Diana Spencer and William Farrar of Virginia
from Henry Savile of Copley [details/pedigree available upon request].

Special thanks to MichaelAnne Guido for her input, and providing the
correction to the placement of Joan FitzWilliam, wife of Sir Brian de
Thornhill.

Cheers,



John *

Dear helpful SGMites,

'The Antiquities of Warwickshire' by Sir William Dugdale (Vol. II of The
Second Edition, page 981) has 'Edw. Marowe de Elmedon duxit…..filiam Andrei
Flamok mil.' with Edward being one of the sons of the Thomas Marowe who was
aged six in 1499 when his father William Marrow died.

The Marow pedigree shown in the 1619 Visitation of Warwickshire (page 69 of
the Harleian Society Vol XII) says Edward had '2 sonne' with no mention at
all of his missus.

Does anyone know anything about this Edward Marowe's wife or his family? Is
'Andrei Flamok' anything to do with the Sir Andrew Flammock who was Henry
VIII's standard bearer (and a thoroughly coarse and offensive man)?

Le,

Scots Peerage (vo. 3, pp. 240 - 241) provides the following
information:
Children of Maldred and "Ealdgith or Algitha (daughter of Uchtred,
earl of Northumberland, by his wife, Aelgifu or Elgiva, daughter of
Aethelred II, king of England.":
1. Gospatric, earl of Northumberland and first earl of Dunbar. He was
born about 1040.
2. Maldred, "who is claimed as the ancestor of Robert Fitz Maldred,
lord of Raby in Durham, & through him of the Nevills, Earls of
Westmoreland and Warwick, and other families of that name. He had
apparently, two sons, Robert & Uchtred." Source for this statement was
Priory of Hexham, Surtees Society, i, 95 & note: cf Liber Vitae
Dunelm, 146

"An Ulkil, son of Maldred, appears as a witness to charters by
Gospatric, brother of Dolfin, before 1138. They may have been
cousins." Source: Raine's North Durham, App. No. cxi; Liber de
Calchou, i, 234

John Holand [1395/6-1447], later Constable Of The Tower [1420] and 3rd
Duke of Essex [6 Jan 1443/4] certainly WAS at the Siege of Harfleur and
the Battle of Agincourt.

Thomas Beaufort was ALSO at the Siege of Harfleur, took the surrender of
the city on 22 Sep 1415 and commanded the garrison there AFTER the
surrender.

Thomas did NOT fight in the Battle of Agincourt on 25 October 1415. He
was not YET Duke of Essex either. He became the 2nd Duke of Essex [for
life], the first duke of the second creation, on 18 November 1416.

Dear Florent,

John and William Burley, who were both Members of Parliament are from a
totally different family than that of Richard and John. Richard, John.
etal. are of the family from Herefordshire. John and William are from
Shropshire.

The parentage of John is not certain. The connection with the Grey family
may come through William's second wife, whose next heir in her IPM is a
member of the Grey family.

Information on William and Ellen Grendon can be found in several places
including William Soalt Society pubs., which information I gave to Douglas
several years ago.

Hope this helps,

Hi Mr. Richardson,

Thank you for your reply.

I can read the information on page 377 in your book. I think it make a
strong point as of Joan Burley's parentage.

I do not have the possibility of getting access to Roskell for a while. Is
it possible to know what are the main points about the Burley family? or is
it available on line (I can see some items related to William, Roger, John

There is no need to be confused. If you examine the sources cited in
Plantagenet Ancestry, you should find ample evidence which proves that
Joan (Burley) Littleton is the daughter and co-heiress of Sir William
Burley, by his 1st wife, Ellen Grendon.

I particularly recommend you examine the biography of Sir William
Burley by Roskell, which is cited in the Harcourt account in my book.
Roskell discusses Sir William Burley's life history, including his two
marriages, and provides adequate documentation for him and his family.
Roskell also discusses Burley's alleged connection to the Grey
family, which he questions for lack of evidence. I concur with Mr.
Roskell.

Hi Mr. Powys-Lybbe,

Thank you for your reply to my post.

As you have probably read on a previous reply from Mr. Richardson, one of
your source seems to indicate the same parents for Joan, being William and
maybe...Ellen grendon.

Since Mr. Richardson have posted an additional reply last night as of 2
new
sources of information with respect to this William Burley I should say
that
...I do not know what to think anymore or in french we say... rester sur

Maybe there will be new/different/other evidence about my Joan Burley's
ancestry which can turn out in a near future !!

Thank you all for your time and effort.

Hi Kay Allen, Tim Powys-Lybbe, Chris Dickinson and Douglas Richardson,

I would like to think everyone who took the time to answer my queries about
Joan Burley's parents. Most of the information seen so far is aiming at
William Burley and Ellen Grendon being her parents.

I have also seen a document called: ¨Excerpts from the Institute¨ which
seems to be an update by a Mr. Coke (Coke upon Littleton) of the previous
Thomas Littleton' treatise on property laws (Tenures). The document at page
580 stipulate clearly that Thomas Littleton married to ¨Johan one of the
daughters and coheires of William Burley of Broomescroft Castle in the
county of Salop, a gentleman of ancient descent...¨ at page 582 it adds:
¨his wife Johan Lady littleton survived him and left a great inheritance of
her father, and Ellen her mother, daughter & heire of John Grendon Esquire,
and other her Ancestors, to Sir William Littleton her son¨.

Thank you all again for your help and to have taken the time to guide me in
my quest.

Regards

Florent Coache

Dear Florent,

John and William Burley, who were both Members of Parliament are from a
totally different family than that of Richard and John. Richard, John.
etal. are of the family from Herefordshire. John and William are from
Shropshire.

The parentage of John is not certain. The connection with the Grey family
may come through William's second wife, whose next heir in her IPM is a
member of the Grey family.

Information on William and Ellen Grendon can be found in several places
including William Soalt Society pubs., which information I gave to Douglas
several years ago.

Hope this helps,

Hi Mr. Richardson,

Thank you for your reply.

I can read the information on page 377 in your book. I think it make a
strong point as of Joan Burley's parentage.

I do not have the possibility of getting access to Roskell for a while. Is
it possible to know what are the main points about the Burley family? or is
it available on line (I can see some items related to William, Roger, John
and Simon Burley but with no details on the on-line Catalogue of the
National Archve of UK)?

Thank you

Whatever, John Holland may well have been at Agincourt, but not as the Duke of

Dear SGM ites,

Thomas Marowe de Hoxton, formerly 'of Rudfyn' or Rudfeld, born abt. 1516,
married Alice Yonge, daughter and heir of Richard Yonge ob. 1545 (1619
Visitation of Warwickshire and Dugdale's Antiquities). The visitation
pedigree of the Marowes has Richard as the son of Robert and Margery Yonge
and the grandson of Henrie Yonge. Dugdale has (what may have been a
mistake): 'Alicia fola filia and haeres Ric. Harreyong nupta 29.H.8.'

The A2A resource has some property dealings between Thomas Marowe and one
John Harry Yonge of Shoreditch, gentleman (the Marowes also came from
London) but of course that John may just have been a business connection
for all I know.

Can anyone tell me anything at all about this Yonge family?

The visitation has Marow adding a quartering of Young to their arms (which
also quartered Rich) as: 'Argent, a chevron chequy or and sable between
three griffins' heads erased gules, on a chief vert a ducal crown argent
between two bezants'.

best regards to all

I bought the 8th edition of Ancestral Roots, published recently. I would
not recommend it to others. There is very little in it that is new, and
the
opportunity to clean up earlier editions has largely been lost; there are
innumerable typos, and it perpetuates many errors in prior editions that
have long been demolished, such as the Corbet-Malory marriage. Like prior
editions, this one is particularly egregious on the Haringtons. As one
example, it makes Isabel Harington, wife of Sir John Stanley, a daughter
of the 2d Lord Harington. The 7th edition said she was daughter of the 3d
Lord Harington. Both are equally clueless. I thought every one knew by
now that Isabel was daughter of Sir Nicholas Harington of Farleton.

The editors of the 8th edition would have been spared many of their
mistakes if they had had the good sense to participate in this forum, as
Douglas
Richardson did.

There is at least one bogus line that appears in the 8th edition for the
first time in this series. This is the supposed descent of the Vernons of
Haddon from Sir Richard de Vernon and "Juliana de Vescy," daughter of
William de Vescy and Agnes, daughter of William de Ferrers, 5th Earl of
Derby.

The only citation is to Burke's Peerage (1953) p. 2134. This supposed
descent has been commented on once or twice in this forum with
considerable skepticism. In fact it is easy to show that the Vernons of
Haddon, and their innumerable descendants, did not spring from such a
marriage. In 1315 Gilbert de Aton was found to be the heir general of
William de Vescy, 1st Lord Vescy (d. 1297), by descent from Warin de
Vescy, uncle of the William de Vescy who married Agnes de Ferrers. CP
12:2:285 n.(b).

Thus the descendants of William who married Ferrers, and indeed of his
father, Eustace de Vescy, were extinct by 1315.

When was this title bestowed, and upon whom? I don't remember Henry V (Brannaugh

Do try not to confuse the issue David - you do tend to do this you know, not
very helpful. My abuse of drugs (as you accuse) seems not to have affected my

help if you line your syrups* with tin foil too, as something seems to be

Yes, I realize there was no Standard Spelling in English in the 17th
Century. I was just looking for a plausible preferred spelling.

Was Mareen Duvall a Huguenot?

Several of the modern Duvall men seem to be Naval Academy graduates --
not surprising. I'll bet there are some at NSA too.

This BRASSEUR connection is quite interesting -- particularly if there
is a connection to Robert Brasseur of Nansemond County, Virginia.

Dear John (SG), Jeff, Spencer, et al.,

Maureen Duvall's daughter Susannah (by his 2nd wife Susannah
Brasseur/Brashears), wife of Robert Tyler of Queen Anne Parish,
Prince George's Co., Maryland, is the ancestress of a large horde,
including the memorable (Harry S. Truman - at least one of the lines
JSG noted; the Rev. John Thomas Wheat; Major Chatham Roberdeau
Wheat, CSA; the Rev. (and Congressman) Francis Emanuel Shober of New
York; and the Wheat family of "Wheat First Securities" fame) as well
as the not-so (myself).

Maureen Duvall the emigrant may not be the holder of the title
"Kilroy of Maryland colonial genealogy", but he was/is certainly a
contender...

John

Several of us on this list descend from Benois Brasseur, the father of
Sussannah Brasseur Duvall. If Benois is the Bennett Brasseur claimed by
Robert Brasseur of Lower Norfolk Co., and "Nancimond" Co. VA, then there
may be a connection to Vice President Dick Cheney through the family of Robert.

Benois or Benjamin Brasseur was appointed a Justice of the Peace for
Calvert Co, MD but soon died. He did not leave a will, but his wife, Mary
(Richford, Rickford, Richeford?) did write onr before her marriage to
Thomas Starling or Sterling, (WILL of MARY BRASSEUR, Maryland Hall of
Records, L. 1, ff. 187-189) wherein she names a Robert Brasseur as her
Brother-in-law and joint overseer of her will with Thomas Sterling.

The home of Benois and Mary Brasseur, called "Upper Bennett" at The Cliffs,
was in existence as late as 1957. Does anyone know if it still exists or
was it destroyed when the nuclear plant was built?

Steven C. Perkins

Dear Spencer (and JSG, Jeff, Steven, et al.),

Pardon the typo - must have been thinking of a John Wayne movie....

Mareen is the 'correct' spelling, but then proper spelling and 17th
century Maryland had little to do with one another. Following are my
basic notes re: Mareen Duvall [note the different spelling in the MD
record of his patent of 1664].

Dear Spencer, et al.,

Perhaps JSG knows better re: Mareen Duvall's affiliation.
He may have been a Huguenot, although obviously emigrating well
before the revocation of the Edict of Nantes.....

Re: the hot Brasseur topic, following is what I have in my
notes re: Benois/Benjamin Brasseur, father in law of Mareen
Duvall. As I have it, his issue included his daughter Susannah
(Brasseur) Duvall, and his elder son Robert Brasseur of
Elizabeth Cittie [later Nansemond County], Virginia. Main
reference: Early Families of Southern Maryland, by Elise J.
Jourdan (5 volumes. Westminster, MD: Family Line Publications)

Comments (and conundrums), anyone?

Cheers,

John

uneducated -- self-admitted cocaine-sniffing and marijuana-smoking --
English rampant pogue obviously does NOT. His abuse of illegal drugs

Just to interject here.

When I was in London in 1987 and 1989 I went into the Tower a number
of times as there is quite a lot to take in. The Tower of London has a
number of guides who are very vocal and have their own stories about
the Tower..The only decent look around the Tower that I got was with
an old fellow ex matelot..
In fact there were two or three different tales about different parts
of the Tower.
The baptisimal font for one...

This BRASSEUR connection is quite interesting -- particularly if there

What I have on Benois and Mary Brasseur:


85. Benois/Benjamin[10] Brasseur[60] (A528). Born, circa 1610 (?), in FR.
Died, circa 1663, in The Cliffs, Calvert Co., MD. Immigration: before 1653,
in Nansemond Co., VA. Occupation: farmer-justice.

Benois or Benoit Brassieur/Brassier came to Maryland from Virginia as is
shown from his Certificate of Denization from Cecil Lord Baltimore in 1662/3
(Maryland Hall of Records, Proceedings of the Provincial Council, L. HH, ff.
157-158). Unfortunately, Benois died shortly afterwards (1663) and he did not
leave a will. His wife did make a will prior to her marriage to Thomas Starling
and it is printed below. In Maryland, Benois Brasseur became Benjamin Brashears
and he was appointed a Justice of the Peace for Calvert Co.

Benois was probably related to the Brasseur family of Lower Norfolk and
Nansemond countiess, Virginia. A Bennet Brasseur is named as one of the persons
transported by Robert Brasseur in a patent of 1200 acres in "Nanzemond Co."
dated 12 April 1653 (Virginia Patent Book 3, p. 33 in Nugent, Cavaliers and
Pioneers, vol. 1, p. 244). At least 600 acres of this land escheated to the
Crown "by reason Rob. Braseur was an alien". At the time of the escheat, 19
November 1670, the 600 acres was in the possession of Rich. Staples, husband of
one of the daughters of Robert Brasseur to whom he willed the land
("Inquisitions on Escheated Lands", The Virginia Genealogist, vol. 20, p. 111).
The escheat of an additional 300 acres of the lands of Robert Brasseur is also
recorded ("Inquisitions on Escheated Lands", The Virginia Genealogist, vol. 20,
pp. 23-24). This land was granted, 7 June 1670, to "Mr. John Brasseur his
sonn".

Benois had a patent in Virginia for "300 acres at the head of Indian
Creek, a branch of the western branch of the Nansemond River", Virginia Patent
Book 3, p. 89, dated 12 April 1653, (Nugent, Cavaliers and Pioneers, vol. 1, p.
257). One of the persons claimed as a headright was Mary RICHFORD. This patent
was renewed 26 March 1656 (Virginia Patent Book 4, p. 26 (40) in Nugent,
Cavaliers and Pioneers, vol. 1, p. 329). A Benors Brasheire was granted 100
acres in "Nancimond Co.", by an inquisition of 23 February 1662. This land was
granted to Charles Drury 23 September 1663 (Virginia Patent Book 5, p. 450
(543) in Nugent, Cavaliers and Pioneers, vol. 1, pp. 539-540).

The home of Benois Brasseuir, "Upper Bennett", was in existence in 1957
and was located at "The Cliffs" in Calvert Co., Maryland.

He married Mary Richford? (86) (A529), circa 1645, in VA. Children:

i. Robert[9] Brashier.
ii. Martha Brassier. Born, circa 1658, in VA/MD. Died in MD.
Occupation: housewife. She married Henry Kent, 1674, in MD.
iii. Elizabeth Brassier. Born, circa 1660, in Calvert Co., MD.
iv. Susannah Brassier. Born, before 1663, in VA/MD. Occupation:
housewife. She married Mareen Duvall.
v. Ann Brassier. Born, before 1663, in VA/MD. Occupation:
housewife. She married William Dalrymple.
vi. Mary Brassier. Born, before 1663. Died, after 1669, in MD?.
Occupation: housewife. She married, first, Nathaniel Robbins, 7
May 1669, in MD. She married, second, Christopher Ellis, after
1670, in Pr. George's Co., MD.
vii. John Brassier. Born, before 1663, in VA/MD. Died, circa
1696, in
Calvert Co., MD. Prob of Est: 1696, in MD Hall Records,
Wills, L
7, f 225. He married Ann Sterling?, circa 1660 (?), in MD?.
viii. Benjamin Brassier. Born, before 1663, in VA/MD. Died, Feb
1675/6, in Calvert Co., MD. Prob of Est: 13 Mar 1675/6, in MD
Hall Records, Wills, L 2, f 402.


86. Mary[10] Richford/Richeford/Rickford? (A529). Born in FR/Eng. Died,
after 1663, in MD. Prob of Est: after 1663, in MD Hall Records, L 1, ff
187-189.
Occupation: housewife.

The surname of Mary Brasseur is believed to be Richford. This is
based solely on the importation of a Mary Richford by Benois Brasseur as
mentioned above.

After the death of Benois, Mary secured a deed to the land and the
house the family had from Richard Bennett (Maryland Archives, vol. 41, p.
178). She also made a will at this time. The will was probated after she
became the wife of Thomas Starling.

WILL of MARY BRASSEUR, Maryland Hall of Records, L. 1, ff. 187-189. In the
