BARONY OF LISLE (IV)

ELIZABETH BERKELEY, according to modern doctrine suo jure BARONESS LISLEof Kingston Lisle and BARONESS TEYES, daughter and heir, succeeded tothese baronies on the death of her mother in 1392. On the death of herfather in 1417, when she was aged 30, she succeeded him, according tomodern doctrine, as BARONESS BERKELEY. She opposed the succession ofJames Berkeley her cousin, heir male of her father, to the Berkeleyestates. She married, before May 1399, as 1st wife, Richard (BEAUCHAMP),EARL OF WARWICK, who styled himself 'Comes de Warrewyk et de Aumale,seigneur L'Isle et capitayne de Rouen.' See fuller particulars of him subWARWICK. She died s.p.m., 28 December 1422, and was buried in KingswoodAbbey, Wilts. At her death the Baronies of Lisle, Teyes and Berkeleyfell, according to modern doctrine, into abeyance (k) among her 3daughters and coheirs: (i) MARGARET; see below. (ii) ELEANOR, bornSeptember 1408, at Walthamstow in Essex, married, 1stly, Thomas, LordROS, 2ndly, Edmund (Beaufort), Duke of Somerset, and, 3rdly, WalterRokesley; in the Inquisition post mortem on her father (1439) she is saidto have been aged 25. (iii) ELIZABETH, born in Warwick Castle, marriedGeorge (Nevill), Lord Latimer; she is said to have been aged 22 in herfather's Inquisition post mortem. [Complete Peerage VIII:54-5,(transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

[k] In 1823 Sir John Shelley Sidney, Bart., petitioned for thedetermination of the abeyance in the Barony of Lisle in his favour assole heir of the body of Margaret, the eldest da. and coh. of Elizabeth,Countess of Warwick. The petitioner's descent from Gerard, 1st Lord Lisle[1357] was through the families of Shelley, Perry, Sydney, Dudley, Grey,Talbot, Beauchamp, Berkeley and Lisle. The other coheirs were: George,Earl of Essex, Sir Henry Hunloke, Bart., and Charlotte, Baroness Ros, ascoheirs of the body of Eleanor, the 2nd da; and Hugh, Duke ofNorthumberland Winchcomb Henry Howard Hartley, James Knightley, TrothGrove, Villiers William Villiers, Montagu, Earl of Abingdon, Sir FrancisBurdett, Bart., William Fermor, and John, Lord Rollo, as coheirs of thebody of Elizabeth, the third da. The case is fully set out in Sir N. H.Nicolas's Report of the Proceedings on the Claim to the Barony of L'Isle[1829], which he published with a view to defending the modern doctrineas to barony by writ, in which, as a practising Peerage Counsel, he wasmuch interested. The doctrine was assailed in the judgment delivered byLord Redesdale (18 and 22 May 1826), which did not reject the petition,as has been generally supposed, on the ground of want of proof ofsitting, but because in his Lordship's opinion a writ of summons and asitting thereunder at so early a date did not in fact create anhereditary barony. On 25 May following the House of Lords resolved 'thatthere did not appear to be sufficient ground to advise His Majesty toallow the claim of the Petitioner.' In 1835 the petitioner's only son wascreated Baron De L'Isle and Dudley of Penshurst.

Thomas de Berkeley, Lord Berkeley, son and heir, who 'may bee calledThomas, the Magnificent.' He was b. at Berkeley Castle, 5 Jan 1352/3,and after having a ward to his father-in-law, Lord Lisle, made proof ofhis age on 5 Jan 1373/4. He was summoned to Parliament from 16 July 1381to 3 Sep 1415. From 1378 to 1385 he served in the wars in France, Spain,Brittany, and Scotland, and in 1386 entertained the King at BerkeleyCastle, for the deposition of whom, however, he was, 30 Sep 1399, one ofthe Commissioners.

She wasthen aged but 7, and they remained 4 years apart. At her father's death,28 June 1382, she inherited considerable estates, and, in her own right,her husband appears to have styled himself Lord Lisle.

(1) Thomas, Lord Ros, (2) Edmund, Duke of Somerset, and (3) WalterRokesley, Esq; and Elizabeth, wife of George Neville, Lord Latimer.According to the usual descent of Baronies in fee the dignity created bythe Writ of Summons of 1295 and that of 1308, should have devolved on thesaid Elizabeth, daughter and heir of Thomas, Lord Berkeley, and not uponhis collateral heir male; but whether this anomaly arose from an ideathen prevailing, that the tenure of the Castle of Berkeley conferred theBarony, or whether the heir male had the greater political influence,cannot now perhaps be ascertained: the inference which may be drawn fromthe relative situations of the husband of the said Elizabeth, who was oneof the most powerful noblemen of the time, and that of James Berkeley whosucceeded to the Barony, is, that the tenure of Berkeley Castle was thenconsidered to confer the dignity on its possessor, and consequently thatthe said James was allowed that dignity as his right, rather than by thefavour of the Crown. There were, however, other instances, as inBurghersh and De la War, of the heir male of a Baron by Writ, beingsummoned instead of the heir general, and if modern decsisions may beapplied to the subject, the Baronies of Berkeley, created by the Writs ofSummons are now in abeyance between the descendants and representativesof the three daughters and coheirs of Elizabeth, Countess of Warwick,above mentioned, whose names will be found in a Note to the account ofthe Barony of Lisle; and the Barony possessed by the Earls Berkeley(1658-1882) is that created by the Writ of Summons to James Berkeley 1421.

Meanwhile in 1357 a Gerard de Lisle, second cousin of the Robertmentioned above and grandson of another Gerard who had acquired theBerkshire manor of Kingston Lisle from his mother, was called toParliament by writ. He thus became according to later doctrine Lord(Baron) Lisle [the Barony de Lisle of the aforementioned Robert existeduntil 1428, making two Baronies named the same]. As has been remarkedelsewhere, the absurdity of two peers of Parliament with identical titlesexisting simultaneously is one of the strongest arguments for supposingearly writs of summons were not intended to create heritable titles ofhonour. This 1st Lord Lisle of the 1357 creation also fought at Crecy,as well as in other battles of the Hundred Years War. The 1357 peeragedescended to two sole heiresses in succession, who by a later doctrinewould have been deemed baronesses in their own right. With the death ofthe second sole heiress any barony created by the writ of 1357 would havebeen deemed by later doctrine to have fallen into abeyance. In 1823 adescendant of this second sole heiress, Sir John Shelley Sidney, 1stBaronet, unsuccessfully petitioned the House of Lords to terminate theabeyance in his favour.

--------------------------------------------------

BARONY OF LISLE (I)

GERARD DE LISLE, son and heir, was aged 23 years and more in February1326/7, and 40 and more in 1350. In March 1326/7 the escheator wasordered not to meddle with the lands, as the father held nothing inchief. He was a Knight in 1327. he was summoned for military service inDecember 1334 and March 1334/5; to a Council 20 June 1358, and toParliament 15 December 1357, by writs directed Gerardo de Insula or delIsle, whereby he is held to have become LORD LISLE. In 1333 and 1335 hewas engaged in the Scottish wars, in the latter year under Richard, Earlof Arundel. In 1359 he had a dispute with his mother as to thepresentation to Stowe church, Northants, but admitted that it was not histurn; he also complained of trespass on his park at Stowe. In June 1340he was going beyond seas with the Earl of Arundel, and was engaged, as abanneret, in the French camaign of 1346-1347, fighting at Crécy in theEarl's division. In 1347 he succeeded to his mother's inheritance, and,according to modern doctrine, became LORDTEYES. He made an agreement, 5March 1349/50, to accompany the Earl of Arundel with 30 men-at-arms for100 marks per annum, receiving £100 before leaving England. In September1350 he had licence to make a pilgrimage to Rome, with 7 horses. In 1351he had livery of the manor of Bracken in Kilnwick, part of his mother'sinheritance. In August 1354, as Gerard de Insula, dominus de Stowe, heagreed to the appointment of the Pope as arbitrator in the dispute withFrance. In September 1359 he was again engaged in the French wars.

He married, 1stly, in or before 1330, Eleanor, whose parentage isunknown. She was presumably dead in or before 1347 (a). He married,2ndly, before 3 July 1354, Elizabeth, widow of Edmund (DE ST. JOHN), LORDST. JOHN, of Basing (died a minor, 1347), who held several manors indower. For a fine of £100 he was pardoned for marrying her withoutlicence. He died 9 June 1360, holding the manor of Kingston Lisle ofRobert de Lisle of Rougemont by the service of one knight's fee and apair of gilt spurs or 6d. His widow married Sir Richard PEMBRUGGE, whosurvived her. She died 16 September 1362. [Complete Peerage VIII:50-1,XIV:443, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

(a) When it was reported that Margery, widow of Nicholas de la Beche, hadbeen joined in wedlock to Gerard de Lisle, but had been carried off fromBeaumes Manor, near Reading, by Sir John de Dalton and others. Gerardwas appointed to arrest the marauders, and, fearing bodily harm in theattempt, was authorized to bear arms. This marriage appears to have beenprojected only, for Margery married Dalton.

He was sent withthe Earl of Suffolk to Cherbourg, July 1370, to escort the King ofNavarre to England; sailed with the King's unsuccessful expedition forthe relief of Rochelle and Thouars, August 1372; nominated K.G. 1373;took part in John of Gaunt's historic but fruitless march from Calais toBordeaux, August-December 1373, and in the descent on Brittany, 1375;Chief Commissioner to enforce the truce with Scotland, 29 January and 29July 1375, and a Commissioner for the same, 6 September 1380. In the'Good Parliament' of 1376 and in those of February and October 1377 hewas a Commissioner appointed by the Lords to act with the Commons forreform. At the Coronation of Richard II, 16 July 1377, he carried thethird sword and exercised his hereditary office of Pantler. He wasappointed Admiral of the fleet towards the North, 5 December 1377;Guardian of the King communi sententia, circa Februaty 1379/80; aCommissioner of retrenchment, 2 March following; and he was going toIreland with the Earl of March April 1380. During the Peasants' Revolt,June 1381, he was with the King in the Tower and was later sent, with SirThomas Percy, to protect St. Albans Abbey. In 1385 he accompanied RichardII on his only expedition into Scotland. On 14 November 1387 the Earls ofGloucester, Warwick and Arundel, having taken up arms, 'appealed' oftreason the King's advisers, the Duke of Ireland (de Vere) and the Earlof Suffolk; and, with the Earl of Derby, they trapped and defeated deVere at Radcot Bridge, 20 December following. In the 'MercilessParliament' that followed, February 1387/8, these Lords Appellant,including Warwick, impeached de Vere and Suffolk and other leaders of theKing's party, some of whom were executed.

After some years of retirementand as a result of a law-suit in 1396, he was compelled to hand overGower and Swansea Castle to the Earl of Nottingham, 1 June 1397. Possiblyas a result of this he may have joined in the alleged plot of Gloucesterand Arundel (which was betrayed to Richard Il by Nottingham), for whichhe was arrested in the house of the Bishop of Exeter at Temple Bar on acharge of high treason and committed, 12 July 1397, to the Tower ofLondon and afterwards to Tintagel Castle, Cornwall.

Roger Bigod , 5th Earl of Norfolk1,2

M, b. circa 1245, d. December 1306
     Roger Bigod , 5th Earl of Norfolk was born circa 1245 at Thetford, Norfolk, England. He married Aline Basset , Countess of Norfolk after 1265.1,2 Roger Bigod , 5th Earl of Norfolk died in December 1306 at Framlingham Castle, Suffolk, England.
     He Th 5th and last Earl of Norfolk of this 1140/1 or 1189 creation, anotherRoger (le) Bigod, also served as Marshal at Edward I's coronation but wasstripped of the office by the King on refusing to take an army to Gasconyin early 1297. After a long-standing dispute with the King over theconfirmation of his charters and Magna Charta itself he in 1302surrendered the Earldom for regrant together with a life interest inadditional territorial possessions bringing him an annual income of 1000pounds (over 24 million in late 1990 pounds). On his dying childless inlate 1306 the Earldom and Marshalcy reverted to the Crown, whereas if hehad not made the surrender four years earlier the former at any ratewould have passed to his brother. [Burke's Peerage, on 'Norfolk, othercreations', p. 2090]

--------------------------

Roger was the hero of a famous altercation with Edward I in 1297, whocommanded him to serve against the King of France in Gascony, whileEdward went to Flanders. The earl asserted that by the tenure of hislands he was only compelled to serve across the seas in the company ofthe king himself, whereupon Edward said, 'By God, earl, you shall eithergo or hang,' to which Bigod replied, 'By the same oath, O king, I willneither go nor hang.' The earl gained his point, and after Edward leftfor France, he and Humphrey de Bohun, Earl of Hereford, prevented thecollection of an aid for the war and forced Edward to confirm thecharters in this year and again in 1301. Roger died without issue. Histitle became extinct and reverted to the crown. The Bigods held thehereditary office of steward (dapifer) of the royal household, and theirchief castle was at Framlingham in Suffolk. (Encyclopædia Britannica,1961 ed, Vol. 3, pages 556/557, Hugh Bigod, Earl of Norfolk.)

--------------------------

Roger Bigod, 5th Earl of Norfolk, and 2nd earl marshal of this family,took a distinguished part in the wars of King Edward I., havingpreviously, however, in conjunction with the Earl of Hereford, compelledeven that resolute monarch to ratify the Great Charter and Charter of theForest. His lordship m. 1st, Aliva, dau. and heiress of Phillip, LordBasset, and widow of Hugh Despencer, slain at Evesham, and 2ndly, Joane,dau. of John de Avenne, Earl of Bayonne, but had no issue by either. Inthe 29th of Edward I. the earl constituted that monarch his heir, andsurrendered into his hands the marshal's rod, upon condition that itshould be returned in the event of his having children, and that heshould receive £1,000 prompt, and £1,000 a year for life; in consequenceof which surrender his lordship was recreated Earl of Norfolk in 1302,with remainder to his heirs male by his 1st wife, but dying withoutissue, as stated above, in five years afterwards, the Earldom became(according to the surrender) extinct in the Bigod family, although hislordship left a brother, John Bigod, his heir-at-law, whose right seemsto have been annihilated in this very unjust and extraordinary manner,and so completely destroyed that he did not even inherit any of the greatestates of his ancestors.

     He BARONY OF MOUNTJOY (I) 1465

WALTER BLOUNT, son and heir, born circa 1420, 'in the hundred ofAppletree' [co. Derby], probably at Barton Blount. He was a Knight of theShire for Derby 1447 and later to 1460. In 1449 he was bailiff for lifeof the wapentakes of Morleston and Litchurch, co. Derby, and J.P. (exceptfrom 1456-60). During the disturbances at the time of the King's insanityin 1454, he was under suspicion of taking part in plots, and indeed hebecame a Yorkist; but he was pardoned in December 1459, though deprivedof his bailiwick. On 22 October 1460, a few days after Richard, Duke ofYork, asserted his title to the Crown and was in power, Blount was madetreasurer of Calais, being continued in that office in 1461, and K.B.before the Coronation of Edward IV, 4 March 1460/1. In October of thatyear he was laying siege to the castle of Hammes, near Calais, and inJuly 1463 was a member of the embassy sent to meet the commissioners ofthe Duke of Burgundy at St. Omer. He was made Treasurer of England, 24November 1464, and held the office for a little more than 15 months. On2O June 1465 he was created LORD MOUNTJOY (Dominus de Mountjoy), to himand the heirs male of his body, witb a fee of 20 marks, part from thetown of Thurvaston and part from the profits of Derbyshire and Notts. InAugust 1467 he was one of the King's courtiers present in the inn of theAichbishop of York when he surrendered the Great Seal to Edward IV. In1468 he was allowed to ship wool free of customs in consideration of thelarge sum of money then due to him; and in the same year entered intoarticles to serve the King as Captain of the Army, with 60 men-at-armsand 2,940 archers, in his proposed expedition against France in aid ofthe Duke of Brittany, but the design being abandoned, he was againretained to serve with 1,000 men, 60 being men-at-arms, and shortlybefore April 1469 to serve at sea. When Edward IV was a prisoner in thehands of Warwick in August and September 1469, Mountjoy apparently waswith him, for he returned to London with the King in October. In April1470 he and the Earl of Wiltshire were empowered to receive thesubmission of rebels who had taken part in the Lincolnshire revolt inMarch. There does not appear to be any record of the part he playedduring the short restoration (October 1470,to April 1471) of Henry VI,but his son William died of wounds received at the battle of Barnet, 14April 1471, fighting for Edward IV. On 3 July 1471 Mountjoy took the oathof fidelity to the King's infant son Edward (born 4 November 1470) on hiscreation as Prince of Wales; and on 24 April 1472 he was nominated K.G.In February 1472/3 he was a commissioner to inquire as to piraticalattacks on Portuguese vessels, and in July was one of the King's Councilpresent at the delivery of the Great Seat to Edward IV in the refectoryof the Franciscan house at Stamford.

He married, 1stly, in or before 1442, Ellen, daughter of Sir John BYRON,of Clayton, near Manchester. She was buried at Elvaston. He married,2ndly, before 25 November 1467, Anne, widow of Humphrey (STAFFORD), DUKEOF BUCKINGHAM (died 1460), and daughter of Ralph (NEVILLE), EARL OFWESTMORLAND, by Joan DE BEAUFORT, legitimated da. of John of Gaunt. Hedied 1 August 1474, and was buried in the chapel of the Apostles in theChurch of the Grey Friars, London. His widow, by whom he had no issue,and who continued to be known as Duchess of Buckingham, had dowerassigned 11 March 1474/5. She died 20 September 1480, and was buried atPleshey, Essex.
