Geoffrey's mother was Eremburg of La Fleche, heiress of Maine. Geoffrey himself became the father of the Plantagenet dynasty of English kings.

Nicknamed for the sprig of broom (= ''gen t'' plant, in French) he wore in his hat as a badge, at the age of 15 he married Matilda, the daughter of Henry I of England and widow of Henry IV, Holy Roman Emperor. The marriage in 1128 was meant to seal a peace between England/Normandy and Anjou. She was eleven years older than Geoffrey, and their marriage was a stormy one, but she survived him. Their eldest son became Henry II of England.

The year after the marriage Geoffrey's father left for Jerusalem (where he was to become king), leaving Geoffrey behind as count as Anjou.

When King Henry died in 1135, Maud's cousin Stephen seized the throne. While Maud turned her attentions to England, Geoffrey focused on the conquest of Normandy. This was to take a decade of steady seigework and alliance-building, a process Geoffrey would not abandon even when his wife pleaded for help in England. The merits of this strategy are sometimes debated. While Angevin forces might have been decisive if brought over to England, it also seems that the possession of Normandy played a role, possibly even a decisive one, in the eventual success of their son Henry in taking the English crown.

Geoffrey also put down three baronial rebellions in Anjou, in 1129, 1135, and 1145-1151. The threat of rebellion slowed his progress in Normandy, and is one reason he could not intervene in England.

In the remaining years of his life, Geoffrey consolidated his hold on Normandy, reforming the administration of the duchy, and, in 1150, introduced Henry into its rule.

He died on September 7, 1151, still a young man, and is buried in Le Mans Cathedral in France.

Geoffrey and Matilda had three sons, Henry, Geoffrey, and William. He also had an illegitimate son, Hamelin de Warenne.

The first reference to Norman heraldry was in 1128, when Henry I of England knighted his son-in-law Geoffrey and granted him a badge of gold lions (or leopards) on a blue background. (A gold lion may already have been Henry s own badge.) Henry II used two gold lions and two lions on a red background are still part of the arms of Normandy. Henry's son, Richard I, added a third lion to distinguish the arms of England.

Edmund Mortimer (1351-1381), 3rd earl of March, was son of Roger Mortimer, 2nd earl of March, by his wife Philippa, daughter of William Montacute, 1st earl of Salisbury. Being an infant at the death of his father, Edmund, as a ward of the crown, was placed by Edward III of England under the care of William of Wykeham and Richard Fitzalan, earl of Arundel. The position of the young earl, powerful on account of his possessions and hereditary influence in the Welsh marches, was rendered still more important by his marriage in 1368 to Philippa, only daughter of Lionel of Antwerp, duke of Clarence, third son of Edward III. Lionel's wife was Elizabeth, daughter and heiress of William de Burgh, 6th Lord of Connaught and 3rd earl of Ulster, and Lionel had himself been created earl of Ulster before his marriage. The earl of March, therefore, not only became the representative of one of the chief Anglo-Norman lordships in Ireland in right of his wife Philippa, but the latter, on the death of her father shortly after her marriage, stood next in succession to the crown after the Black Prince and his sickly son Richard, afterwards king Richard II. This marriage had, therefore, far-reaching consequences in the history of England, giving rise to the claim of the house of York to the crown of England, contested in the War of the Roses; Edward IV being descended from the third son of Edward III as great-great-grandson of Philippa, countess of March, and in the male line from Edmund, duke of York, fifth son of Edward III.

Mortimer, now styled earl of March and Ulster, became marshal of England in 1369, and was employed in various diplomatic missions during the next following years. He was a member of the committee appointed by the Peers to confer with the Commons in 1373-the first instance of such a joint conference since the institution of representative parliaments-on the question of granting supplies for John of Gaunt's war in France; and in the opposition to Edward III and the court party, which grew in strength towards the end of the reign, March took the popular side, being prominent in the Good Parliament of 1376 among the lords who, encouraged by the Prince of Wales, concerted an attack upon the court party led by John of Gaunt. The Speaker of the Commons in this parliament was March's steward, Peter de la Mare; he firmly withstood John of Gaunt in stating the grievances of the Commons, in supporting the impeachment of several high court officials, and in procuring the banishment of the king's mistress, Alice Perrers. March was a member of the administrative council appointed by the same parliament after the death of the Black Prince to attend the king and advise him in all public affairs. On the accession of Richard II, a minor, in 1377, the earl became a member of the standing council of government; though as father of the heir-presumptive to the crown he wisely abstained from claiming any actually administrative office. The most powerful person in the realm was, however, John of Gaunt, duke of Lancaster, whose jealousy of March led to the acceptance by the latter of the lieutenancy of Ireland in 1379. March succeeded in asserting his authority in eastern Ulster, but failed to subdue the O'Neills farther west. Proceeding to Munster to put down the turbulency of the chieftains of the south, March died at Cork on the 27th of December 1381. He was buried in Wigmore Abbey, of which he had been a benefactor, and where his wife Philippa who died about the same time was also interred. The earl had two sons and two daughters, the eIder of whom, Elizabeth, married Henry Percy (Hotspur), son of the earl of Northumberland. His eldest son Roger succeeded him as 4th earl of March and Ulster. His second son Edmund (1376-1409) played an important part in conjunction with his brother-in-law Hotspur against Owen Glendower; but afterwards joined the latter, whose daughter he married about 1402.

1332 - 1381 Philippa Montagu 49 49 1352 Margery Mortimer Roger Mortimer 1306 - 1351 Edmund de Mortimer 45 45 1313 - 1356 Elizabeth Baddlesmere 43 43 1287 - 1330 Roger de Mortimer 43 43 Roger Mortimer (1287-1330), nephew of the above and grandson of the 1st Baron Wigmore, was the best-known of his name, but not on merit. As a result of his adulterous relationship with Edward II's queen, Isabella of France, he became effective ruler of England after Edward had been disposed of.

Since he was an infant at the death of his father, Edmund, he was placed by Edward I under the guardianship of Piers Gaveston, and was knighted by Edward in 1306; Mortimer's mother being a relative of Edward's consort, Eleanor of Castile. Through his marriage with Joan de Join-ville, or Genevill, Roger not only acquired increased possessions on the Welsh marches, including the important castle of Ludlow, which became the chief stronghold of the Mortimers, but also extensive estates and influence in Ireland, whither he went in 1308 to enforce his authority. This brought him into conflict with the De Lacys, who turned for support to Edward Bruce, brother of Robert Bruce, king of Scotland. Mortimer was appointed lord-lieutenant of Ireland by Edward II. in 1316, and at the head of a large army drove Bruce to Carrickfergus, and the De Lacys into Connaught, wreaking vengeance on their adherents whenever they were to be found.

He was then occupied for some years with baronial disputes on the Welsh border until about 1318, when he began to interest himself in the growing opposition to Edward II. and his favourites, the Despensers; and he supported Humphrey de Bohun, earl of Hereford, in refusing to obey the king's summons to appear before him in 1321.

Forced to surrender to the king at Shrewsbury in January 1322, Mortimer was consigned to the Tower of London, whence he escaped to France in August 1324. In the following year Isabella, wife of Edward II, anxious to escape from her husband, obtained his consent to her going to France to use her influence with her brother, Charles IV, in favour of peace. At the French court the queen found Roger Mortimer; she became his mistress soon afterwards, and at his instigation refused to return to England so long as the Despensers retained power as the king's favourites.

The scandal of Isabella's relations with Mortimer compelled them both to withdraw from the French court to Flanders, where they obtained assistance for an invasion of England. Landing in England in September 1326, they were joined by Henry, Earl of Lancaster; London rose in support of the queen; and Edward took flight to the west, whither he was pursued by Mortimer and Isabella.

After wandering helplessly for some weeks in Wales, the king was taken on the 16th of November, and was compelled to abdicate in favour of his son. But though the latter was crowned as Edward III in January 1327, the country was ruled by Mortimer and Isabella, who procured the murder of Edward II in the following September.

Rich estates and offices of profit and power were now heaped on Mortimer, and in September 1328 he was created Earl of March. Greedy and grasping, he was no more competent than the Despensers to conduct the government of the country. The jealousy and anger of Lancaster having been excited by March's arrogance, Lancaster prevailed upon the young king, Edward III, to throw off the yoke of his mother's paramour. At a parliament held at Nottingham in October 1330 a plot was successfully carried out by which March was arrested in the castle, and, in spite of Isabella's entreaty to her son to "have pity on the gentle Mortimer," was conveyed to the Tower. Accused of assuming royal power and of various other high misdemeanours, he was condemned without trial and hanged at Tyburn on the 29th of November 1330, his vast estates being forfeited to the crown. March's wife, by whom he had four sons and eleven daughters, survived till 1356. The daughters all married into powerful families, chiefly of Marcher houses. His eldest son, Edmund, was father of Roger Mortimer, who was restored to his grandfather's title as 2nd earl of March.

Roger de Lacy (1171, Lincoln, – 1212, Pontefract) was commander at Château-Gaillard. Roger de Lacy serviced John of England the younger brother of Richard I of England and defended the Château against Philip II of France. Roger de Lacy is buried in the Abbey Stanlaw.

    John de Lacy (1150, Lincoln, – 1190, Palestine) was the father of Baron Roger de Lacy. He was Lord of Flamborough and Constable of Chester.
1165 Helen de Lacy 1128 - 1193 Albreda de Lisoures 65 65 He [William FitzGodric] married, probably about 1169-70, as her third husband, Aubrey, daughter and heir of Robert de Lisours (son of Fulk de Lisours, the Domesday tenant of Sprotborough and other West Riding manors under Roger de Busli), who married, about 1129-30, Aubrey, daughter of Robert de Lacy, lord of Pontefract, and in her issue heir of the great Lacy estates on the death of Robert de Lacy II, 1193-4. Aubrey de Lisours was therefore a great heiress through both parents. She married (1) Robert FitzEustace, c 1150, by whom she had issue John the Constable of Chester (died 1190, from whom the 2nd house of Lacy descended); (2) William de Clairfait, c 1167; and (3) William FitzGodric, c 1169-70. [Complete Peerage V:518 Note]
1085 - 1157 Eustace FitzJohn Clavering de Lacy 72 72 # Note:

    EUSTACE FITZJOHN, brother and heir male, was born before 1100. He became possessed of his father's manor of Saxlingham and made a further gift of 20s. therefrom to Gloucester Abbey. Like his brothers he became a trusted officer of Henry I. He first appears as a witness to a royal charter before 1120 (1116-19), after which he constantly attests Henry I's charters, &c. In 1130 he and William de Luvetot were keepers of Tickhill Castle and the Honor of Blyth, and Eustace farmed Aldborough and Knaresborough. He was acting then as a Justice itinerant in the north, usually with Walter Espec. He is said to have become an intimate friend of Henry I, who granted him large estates and made him Constable of Bamburgh Castle. In consequence of his 1st marriage, he held Alnwick Castle in Northumberland and Malton Castle in Yorkshire. He was at Stephen's Easter court at Westminster in 1136 and later was with him at Clarendon. When Stephen advanced against the King of Scots early in 1138 and pursued him across the border, Eustace was in his army; but the King, hearing that some of his barons were traitors, arrested Eustace, and deprived him of the command of the castles which Henry had entrusted to him. Angered by this treatment Eustace, when the King of Scots invaded England later in the year, joined him and marched with him into Yorkshire, where he put David in possession of Malton Castle. At the Battle of the Standard, 22 August 1138, he fought in David's army, in Prince Henry's division beside the men of Cumberland and Teviotdale, but he was wounded and escaped with difficulty to his castle.

# Note:

    In or before 1139 he became Constable of Chester in right of his 2nd wife. In 1139, when peace had been concluded between England and Scotland and Stephen had given Northumberland to Prince Henry, the Prince confirmed to Eustace all the grants which he had received from Henry I and made him further grants of lands. Eustace was evidently reconciled to Stephen, as he was with the King at Stamford before Easter 1142. During the remainder of the reign he seems to have remained quiescent, living as a great baron of the north, where he even coined his own silver pennies. On 30 November 1143 he was one of those who arranged a truce between the rival bishops of Durham. He is also found attesting, as Constable of Chester, charters of the Earls of Chester. In February 1154/5 he was probably with Henry II at York; about June 1157 he was with him at Waltham; and in the following month he took part in the King's expedition into North Wales. He founded Alnwick Abbey for Premonstratensian canons, and between 1147 and 1154 he founded Gilbertian Convents at Watton and Malton. He was a benefactor to the Abbeys of Gloucester, Fountains, and Bridlington.

# Note:

    He married, 1stly, Beatrice, only daughter and heir of Yves DE VESCY, lord of Alnwick and Malton, by [it is said] "Alda" only daughter and heir of William Tyson, also lord of Alnwick and Malton. She died in childbirth. He married, 2ndly, Agnes, elder sister and coheir of William and daughter of William FITZNEEL, both Barons of Halton in the palatinate of Chester and Constables of Chester. Eustace died in July 1157, being slain when part of Henry II's army was ambushed in the pass of Consyllt, near Basingwerk, in North Wales. His widow married Robert FITZCOUNT, apparently an illegitimate son of an Earl of Chester. He became Constable of Chester jure uxoris and died in or before 1166.

# Note: James Tait ("Knight-Service in Cheshire" [English Historical Review 57], 450)
# Note:

    says that after William, son of William FitzNigel died without issue, Earl Ranulph granted the constableship to Eustace FitzJohn, husband of Agnes, eldest sister and coheiress of William II. The actual charter by which Earl Ranulph granted the honor is printed in _A Medieval Miscellany for Doris Mary Stenton_[Pipe Roll Society, 1962] uder the authorship of Geoffrey Barraclough ("Some charters of the Earls of Chester"), 28-9. Barraclough states that Eustace fitz John's first wife, the heiress of Ivo de Vesci, died in childbirth, and that he then married Agnes, sister of William, constable of Chester, who succeeded his father [the Domesday baron] in the barony of Halton about 1130. After William [II] died childess, his inheritance was divided between his two sisters, Agnes, and Matilda, wife of Albert Grelley, lord of Manchester.

# Note:

    At one point, when Earl Ranulf was 'at loggerheads' with King David of Scotland, Eustace had sided with Scotland (remember, this was during the reign and struggle of King Stephan). After the battle of Lincoln (2 Feb. 1141), Ranulf was forced into league with the Empress Matilda against Stephan, and the Earl and Eustace were again on the same side. The date of the charter by which Eustace fitz John succeeded to the constableship is estimated to be about 1144-5. He would not have granted it to an enemy,and the grant specifically states it was hereditary ("Eustachius et heredes sui"). Eustace was also a Justice itinerant, commanded Scottish troops against Stephen at the battle of Standard in 1138, and founded the Abbeys of Alnwick, Old Malton and Watton. He was slain in Wales in 1157.

# Note:

    Eustace Fitz-John (nephew and heir of Serlo de Burgh, founder of Knaresborough Castle), one of the most powerful of the northern barons and a great favourite with King Henry I. With his two brothers, he was a witness to the foundation of the abbey of Cirencester, co. Gloucester, 1133. He m. 1st, Agnes, eldest dau. of William Fitz Nigel, Baron of Halton, constable of Chester. By this lady he acquired the Barony of Halton, and had an only son, Richard Fitz-Eustace.

# Note:

    Eustace Fitz-John, nephew and heir of Serlo de Burgh (of the great family of Burgh), the founder of Knaresborough Castle, in Yorkshire, and son of John, called Monoculus, from having but one eye, is said by an historian of the period in which he lived, to have been "one of the chiefest peers of England," and of intimate familiarity with King Henry I, as also a person of great wisdom and singular judgment in councils. He had immense grants from the crown and was constituted governor of the castle of Bamburg, in Northumberland, temp. Henry I, of which governorship, however, he was deprived by King Stephen, but he subsequently enjoyed the favour of that monarch. He fell the ensuing reign, anno, 1157, in an engagement with the Welsh, "a great and aged man, and of the chiefest English peers, most eminent for his wealth and wisdom." By his first wife, the heiress of Vesci, he had two sons, and by Agnes, his 2nd wife, dau. of William FitzNigel, Baron of Halton, and constable of Chester, he left another son, called Richard Fitz-Eustace.

He became count of Anjou (as Fulk V) in 1109. He was originally an opponent of Henry I of England and a supporter of Louis VI of France, but in 1127 he allied with Henry when Henry arranged for his daughter Matilda to marry Fulk's son Geoffrey Plantagenet.

Fulk visited the Holy Land in 1120, and become a close friend of the Templars. After his return he began to subsidize the Templars and also maintained two knights in the Holy Land for a year. In 1128 he was preparing to return to the East when he received an embassy from King Baldwin II of Jerusalem who had no male heir to succeed him. Baldwin arranged for Fulk to marry his daughter Melisende, which would allow Fulk to succeed Baldwin as king. Fulk accepted the offer and in 1129 he and Melisende were married, with the towns of Acre and Tyre as her dowry.

In 1131 Fulk became king of Jerusalem when Baldwin II died. The kingdom under Fulk was prosperous, and at the beginning of his reign he also acted as regent of the Principality of Antioch. As regent he had Raymund of Poitou marry the infant Constance, daughter of Bohemund II of Antioch. However, the greatest concern during Fulk's reign was the rise of atabeg Zengi of Mosul.

In 1137 Fulk was defeated near Barin. Fulk then allied with the vizier of Damascus, who was also threatened by Zengi, and was able to capture the fort of Banias, to the north of Lake Tiberias. Fulk also strengthened the kingdom to the south. His butler Paganus built the fortress of Kerak to the south of the Dead Sea, and to help give the kingdom access to the Red Sea, Fulk had Blanche Garde and other forts built in the south-west to overpower the Egyptian fortress at Ascalon.

In 1137 and 1142, Byzantine emperor John II Comnenus arrived in Syria attempting to impose Byzantine control over the Crusader States. John's arrival was ignored by Fulk, who declined an invitation to meet John in Jerusalem. Fulk died in 1143, leaving two sons who both became kings, as Baldwin III and Amalric I.

William of Tyre described Fulk as a capable soldier and politician, who defended both the kingdom and the church, reflecting the policies of his predecessors Baldwin I and Baldwin II. William felt that the major fault of Fulk's reign was his inattention to the defense of the states to the north against the invasions of Zengi, which culminated in the fall of the County of Edessa in 1143.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Thierry of Alsace (c. 1099 – February 4, 1168), in Flanders known as Dierik van den Elzas, was count of Flanders from 1128 to 1168. He was the youngest son of Duke Thierry II of Lorraine and Gertrude of Flanders (daughter of Robert I of Flanders).

After the murder of his cousin Charles the Good in 1127, Thierry claimed the county of Flanders as grandson of Robert I, but William Clito became count instead with the support of King Louis VI of France. William's politics and attitude towards the autonomy of Flanders made him unpopular, and by the end of the year Bruges, Gand, Lille, and Saint-Omer recognized Thierry as a rival count. Thierry's supporters came from the Imperial faction of Flanders, and upon his arrival he engaged in battle against William. Louis VI had the Archbishop of Reims excommunicate him, and Louis himself them besieged Lille, but was forced to retire when Henry I of England, William's uncle, transferred his support to Thierry. However, Thierry was defeated at Thielt and Oostcamp and fled to Bruges. He was forced to flee Bruges as well, and went to Alost, where he was soon under siege from William, Godfrey the Bearded, and Louis VI. The city was about to be captured when William was found dead on July 27, 1128, leaving Thierry as the only claimant to the county.

Thierry set up his government in Gand and was recognized by all the Flemish cities as well as King Henry, who had his Flemish lords in England swear fealty to him. Thierry himself swore homage to Louis VI after 1132, in order to gain the French king's support against Baldwin IV, Count of Hainaut, who had advanced his own claim on Flanders.

In 1133 his wife Marguerite de Clermont (widow of Charles the Good; her name has also been recorded as Suanhilde) died, leaving only a daughter. In 1139 then went on pilgrimage to the crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem, and married Sibylla of Anjou, daughter of King Fulk of Jerusalem and widow of William Clito; a very prestigious marriage. This was the first of Thierry's four pilgrimages to the Holy Land. While there he also led a victorious expedition against Caesarea Philippi, and fought alongside his father-in-law in an invasion of Gilead. He soon returned to Flanders to put down a revolt ini the Duchy of Lower Lorraine, ruled at the time by a regency government under Godfrey III, Duke of Brabant. In return Godfrey recognized Thierry's suzerainty over the Duchy of Brabant.

Thierry went on crusade a second time in 1147 during the Second Crusade. He led the crossing of the Meander River in Anatolia and fought at the Battla of Attalya in 1148, and after arriving in the crusader Kingdom he participated in the Council of Acre, where the ill-fated decision to attack Damascus was made. He participated in the Siege of Damascus, led by his wife's half-brother Baldwin III of Jerusalem, and with the support of Baldwin, Louis VII of France, and Conrad III of Germany, he lay claim to Damascus; the native crusader barons preferred one of their own nobles, Guy Brisebarre, lord of Beirut, but in any case the siege was a failure and all parties returned home.

During his absence, Baldwin IV of Hainaut invaded Flanders and pillaged Artois; Sibylla reacted strongly and had Hainaut pillaged in response. The Archbishop of Reims intervened and a treaty was signed. When Thierry returned in 1150, he took vengeance on Baldwin IV at Bouchain, with the aid of Henry I, Count of Namur and Henry, Bishop of Liège. In the subsequent peace negotiations, Thierry gave his daughter Marguerite in marriage to Baldwin IV's son, the future Baldwin V, Count of Hainaut.

In 1156 Thierry had his eldest son married to Elizabeth of Vermandois, daughter and heiress of Raoul I of Vermandois. In 1156 he returned to the Holy Land, this time with his wife accompanying him. He participated in Baldwin III's siege of Shaizar, but the fortress remained in Muslim hands when a dispute arose between Thierry and Raynald of Chatillon over who would possess it should it be captured. He returned to Flanders 1159 without Sibylla, who remained behind to become a nun at the convent of St. Lazarus in Bethany. Their son Philip had ruled the county in their absence, and he remained co-count after Thierry's return.

In 1164 Thierry returned once more to the Holy Land. He accompanied King Amalric I, another half-brother of Sibylla, to Antioch and Tripoli. He returned home in 1166, and adopted a date palm as his seal, with a crown of laurels on the reverse.

He died on February 4, 1168, and was buried in the Abbey of Watten, between Saint-Omer and Gravelines. His rule had been moderate and peaceful; the highly developed administration of the county in later centuries first began during these years. There had also been great economic and agricultural development, and new commercial enterprises were established; Flanders' greatest territorial expansion occurred under Thierry.

His first wife, Marguerite or Suanhilde, died in 1133, leaving only one daughter, Laurette of Flanders, who married four times:

Iwain, Count of Aalst;
Henry II, Duke of Limburg;
Raoul I of Vermandois, Count of Vermandois;
Henry I, Count of Luxembourg.
Laurette finally retired to a nunnery, where she died in 1170.

Thierry secondly married Sibylla of Anjou, daughter of Fulk V of Anjou and Ermengarde of Maine, and widow of William Clito. Their children were:

Philip of Flanders (died 1191)
Matthew of Alsace (died 1173), married Countess Marie of Boulogne
Margaret I of Flanders (died 1194), married Baldwin V, Count of Hainaut
Gertrude of Flanders (died 1186), married Humbert III of Savoy
Matilda, abbess of Fontevrault

He was the younger son of Baldwin V of Flanders and Adela Capet, a daughter of king Robert I of France.

Robert was originally intended to secure the northern borders of Flanders by his marriage to Gertrude of Holland. But after his brother's death in 1070 he displaced his nephews and became count of Flanders.

By Gertrude of Holland he had 5 children:
Robert II of Flanders
Adela (d.1115), who first married king Canute IV of Denmark, and was the mother of Charles the Good, later count of Flanders. She then married Roger Borsa, duke of Apulia.
Gertrude, who married Thierry II, duke of Upper Lorraine, and was the mother of Thierry of Alsace, also later count of Flanders
Philip of Loo, whose illegitimate son William of Ypres was also a claimant to the county of Flanders
Ogiva, abbess of Messines

Fulk IV, Count of Anjou, 1068-1109, surnamed the Rude, who succeeded as Count of Anjou at the decease, in prison, of his brother Geoffrey, the Bearded. Fulk died April 14, 1109, leaving by Bertrade, daughter of Simon de Montfort, a daughter Ermengarde and a son, Fulk V.

Fulk IV of Anjou (1043 – 1109), also known as Fulk le Réchin, was count of Anjou from 1068 to 1109.

The nickname by which he is usually referred has no certain translation. Philologists have made numerous very different suggestions, including "quarreler", "sullen", and "heroic".

He was the younger son of Geoffrey (sometimes known as Alberic), count of Gâtinais, and Ermengarde of Anjou, a daughter of Fulk Nera, count of Anjou, and sister of Geoffrey Martel, also count of Anjou.

When Geoffrey Martel died without direct heirs he left Anjou to his nephew Geoffrey IV of Anjou, Fulk le Réchin's older brother.

Fulk fought with his brother, whose ruled was deemed incompetent, and captured him in 1067. Under pressure from the Church he released Geoffrey. The two brothers soon fell to fighting again, and the next year Geoffrey was again imprisoned by Fulk, this time for good.

Substantial territory was lost to Angevin control due to the difficulties resulting from Geoffrey's poor rule and the subsequent civil war. Saintonge was lost, and Fulk had to give the Gâtinais to Philip I of France to placate the king.

Much of Fulk's rule was devoted to regaining control over the Angevin baronage, and to a complex struggle with Normandy for influence in Maine and Brittany.

In 1096 Fulk wrote an incomplete history of Anjou and its rulers, though the authorship and authenticity of this work is disputed. If he did write it, it is one of the first medieval works of history written by a layman.

Fulk may have married as many as five times; there is some doubt regarding two of the marriages.

His first wife was Ermengarde de Beaugency. After her death he married Ermengarde de Borbon, and then possibly Ermengarde de Châtellailon. Both these were repudiated, possibly on grounds of consanguinity.

Next he married Bertrade de Montfort, who apparently left him for Philip I of France. Finally, he may have married a daughter of Walter of Brienne.

He had two sons. The eldest (a son of Ermengarde de Borbon), Geoffrey Martel II, ruled jointly with his father for some time, but died in 1106. The younger (a son of Bertrade de Montfort) succeeded as Fulk V.

He also had a daughter, Ermengarde, who married William VII the Young, count of Poitou and duke of Aquitaine.

Heirto his father, and aged about 27 years on the latter's death,when on doing homage to the King and paying 100 marks as abaron's relief he obtained livery of his father's lands. Priorto his doing this the King had (1277) presented to the Church ofBoddington and Ufford (i.e. Torpel). He acquired by marriage aManor in Eling held in grand serjeanty by the annual service ofone pair of gilt spurs and 30 acres of assart at 6s 8d rent,with lands in Hambledon held by military service of John de St.John, and half a Manor in Lasham, all in Hampshire. Through hiswife on her father's death circa 1269 he also acquired a portionof the Gatesden estate, consisting of the Manors of Broadwater,Ullaventon, Tratinton otherwise Trotton and Budelynges, withlands and tenements of Groffam, Alfradesham, Dychenninge,Fletchinge and Demesford situated towards the aforesaid Manors,all which Manors etc. lay in Sussex (26) and apparentlycomprised 8 Knight's fees held of the Honor of Brembre: also theadvowsons of the churches, chapels, and chantries of Broadwater,Ullaventon, Groffham, Tratington, Hetchingfeld (26) andFletchinge, the Manor of Hegton, Sussex, and one third of aKnight's fee held of the Honor of Leicester, also lands inKyrkeby Betume, Norfolk, for which Sir John de Gatesdene hadpaid œ8 a year rent to the King. On the death of his grandmotherMabel de Torpel in 1276-7 Lord John de Cameys was found to beher heir and on paying a relief received livery of her lands inCambridge, held of Roger de Mowbray. As no further mention ismade of these lands he probably sold them. In addition to hisManor in Wood Ditton he held other lands in that Parish, whichwith one third of Newmarket composed three Knight's fees held ofthe Earl of Brittany; these lands he sold prior to 1284-6 toRobert de Valeynes and they then became known as Ditton Valencein contradiction to Ditton Cameys, the Manor which he held inchief in Wood Ditton; this latter Manor he demised to the Kingand Queen in 1281 for a term of 15 years, no doubt in payment ofa debt due to the Crown, and in 1285 released to them all hisrights therein. In addition to his Manor in Orwell he held 25acres as a free tenant at a rent of 17s. 9. Previous to 1290 hehad sold Orwell Manor to John de Kyrkeby and John de Lovetot,but subject to his wife's right of dower therein. Between 1276,in which year he presented to the living, and 1280 he also soldCotterstoke with the advowson of the Church of Piriho Priory toJohn de Kyrkeby; he would also appear to have sold Glapthorne.

Referred to in the Close Rolls of 1275-8-9 and 1280 as owingvarious persons sums of 35, 40, 25, 38, 20, 12 and 110 marks,and also œ32, all secured upon his lands in Sussex, Essex andCambridge. 26th July 1280 the King having granted to QueenEleanor a debt of 500 marks owned by John de Cameys to oneHaginus, a Jew of London, the Exchequer was ordered to levypayment of this debt, whereupon in payment Lord John de Cameysreleased to the King and Queen his rights in his Manor of Torpeland Upton together with their advowsons for a term of 10 years,with a proviso that his tenants in Pilketon, Cotterstoke andGlapthorn should not do suit or service at the Manor Court ofTorpel; the following year in consideration of 600 marks hereleased to the King all his rights in the said lands andadvowsons, which were estimated at the yearly value of œ80. In1291, the King granted these Manors and advowsons to the Abbotof Burgh (Peterborough) during pleasure at a rent of œ100. Isseems evident that the Abbot sublet these lands to their formerowner, as on his death in 1299 Lord John de Cameys was returnedas being seised of them. In Hengham, Norfolk, John de Cameysheld lands in chief, which he sold without license from theCrown. Mentioned as holding in 1275, 110 acres in Pampesworthehundred, Cambridgeshire, occupied by free tenants, also 57.5acres in the township of Henxton, in chief, wherein he claimedin 1279 "ab antiquo" rights of gallows, "tumberelli", assay ofbread and ale and view of frank pledge. He would appear to havesold his lands in Henxton subsequent to 1284-6 and subsequentlyto 1279 he sold Burwell Manor to Robert Tiptoft who then held itfrom him by the service of one sparrow. He claimed free warrenin Orwell by right of Charter to his father Ralph, and similarlyclaimed free warren in Flockthorpe. In 1275, he is mentioned ashaving free warren in Broadwater, Trotton, Audelings,Woolavington, Bemesford and Elnested, Sussex, together withrights of assay of bread and ale and, upon those of his landsadjoining the Sussex coast, rights of wreckage. In 1281, he ismentioned as having view of frank pledge in Stukeley. 1287presented his cousin David de Cameys (see Kemeys of Kemeys) toSt. Mary's Church, Pilton, in succession to his cousin Nicholasde Cameys deceased or resigned. 1294 presented his kinsmanStephen de Hepworth (see Cameys of Great Stukeley) to the Churchof St. George, Hardingham, which living was valued at 35 marksand possessed a manse with 60 acres of land attached to it.

In 1295, he obtained license from the King to enfeoff his sonRalph in Flockthorpe Manor. In 1277, he was summoned to performmilitary service in person for his lands in Cambridge andNorfolk against Llewelyn Prince of Wales, the muster being atWorcester in 8 days of the Festival of St. John the Baptist, inpursuance of which summons he acknowledged the service of oneKnight's fee, half for the inheritance of his father (i.e.Ditton Cameys) and half for that of his mother (i.e. Henxton),to be performed by himself and one "serviens", and also theservice of one fee held in serjeanty (i.e. Flockthorpe), to beperformed by one "serviens". In 1278-9, he was assessed to pay40s scutage on Flockthorpe for the Welsh war. In 1282 againsummoned to perform military service in person against theWelsh, the muster being at Worcester on Whitsuntide, May 17th,and he having already gone to Wales on 6th July followingletters of protection were granted to him until Machaelmaswhilst on the King's service. On a further summons to Rhuddlanfor Sunday, August 2nd - the morrow of St. Peter ad Vincula, -he acknowledged the service of one and half Knight's fees only,to be performed by himself and two "servientes", he havingpreviously, as already stated, sold Ditton Cameys Manor to theKing; to this muster he appeared three weeks late but hisdefault was excused by the King. There is no record of hishaving been summoned to Parliment, there being no writs extantbetween 49 Henry III (1265) and 23 Edward I (1295). Lord John deCameys bore "Or, on a chief gules 2 roundeles arg."

He died in 1299, when according to his post mortem inquisitionin Northamptonshire he was seised in that county of "Torpellmanor' extent'. Leholm cultura, ibidem vocat' Hilhawe contin' 63acres etc., Ayston hamlet' extent'. Ufford adv. ecc. pertin' admanor' de Torpel. Dounhall messuagia ibidem. Leholme dimid'feod'. Upton Maner' extent'" Married Margaret, daughter andheiress of Sir John de Gatesdene, whom he subsequently made overby deed (see Appendix) to Sir William Paynell, whose wife shewas then called; in 1289, he further granted to Paynell all thelands he held in Sussex in right of his wife for a term of 100years, i.e. for his own lifetime. She outlived her husband andunder this deed claimed on his death her dower of one third ofhis estate, but this by judgement by Parliment, 29 and 30 ED.I(1301-2), was negatived on the ground that a husband's deedcould not legalize adultery. After her husband's death, sheobtained license on paying the King 100 marks, to marry whom shepleased, whereupon she married Sir Wm. Paynell. He bore "arg. 2bars sable between 7 martlets gules, 4, 2 and 1.

[Burke's Peerage]


Ralph Lord de Cameys: Baron by writ also by tenure of Flockthorpe Manor, as probably also by tenure of Torpel Manor, Northants, which as will be seen he acquired by marriage.

Prior to 1253, probably on his marriage, his father granted him North Denchworth Manor, Berks. Heir to his father and aged 40 year on the latter's death. On 20th June 1259, as "Ralph, son of Ralph de Kameys", he did homage to the King as a Baron, and on giving sufficient security for payment of the usual relief for all lands and tenements which the said Ralph had held in Norfolk "ut de feodo" (i.e. Flockthorpe Manor held as a Barony), received livery of his late father's lands. By his marriage he acquired six Knight's fees in Northants, comprising Torpel Manor, (20-held in chief "per baroniam," with lands in Upton (20) with the advowson of Ufford Church (20), in Lolhamad joining Ufford, and in Helpeston, also Pilketon (Pilton) Manor and advowson (21), Glapthorne and Cotterstoke Manors (21) with the advowson of Piriho Priory (21), and probably further lands in Tansour for which he paid annually 20s to Sir John Giffard and to the Prior of Piriho apiece. He also acquired by marriage, Hengeston (Hinxton) (22) half a Knight's fee held in chief "perbaroniam": certain lands in Pampesworth (22a) also held in chief; lands in Brune, and Orwell Manor (23), one Knight's fee held of the Earl of Winchester - all in Cambridgeshire: also lands in Keston, Hunts, and certain lands in Lincolnshire. In Torpel Manor were 5 virgates of arable land in demesne, each vergate containing 20 acres, 40 acres in meadow, with a wood and water mill, and in villenage 3.5 vergates; in Pilton there were in demesne 5 virgates, each virgate containing 24 acres, an assortment of 24 acres, 6 virgates in villenage, a free fishery,with cottager's rents of 14s 4d yearly value, and 3s yearly rents of free tenants. Held a quarter of a Knight's fee in chiefin Hardingham, adjoining Flockthorpe, and also lands in Mouton, Norfolk, where Hy. Freman and his parcenors held from him one third part of a Knight's fee of the Honor of Huntingdon (of theportion of Henry de Hastings) which is stated in Lipscomb's History of Buckinghamshire to have been his father's in 1233. In Hants he held lands in Elynges and Lasham with the advowson ofthe latter church, all which he probably inherited from his father with Hambledon. He appears to have possess lands in that county by John, son of Hubert de Burgh. He also appears to have had lands in Nassington (24), Northants, since it is stated inthe Hundred Rolls that in 1275 a jury found that "Ralph deKemeys" had 11 years previous "enclosed a certain wood in Nassington called Muchhawe".

In 1253, "Ralph de Cameys junior" was granted by the King freewarren in all the lands he then held in the counties of Northants, Lincoln, Cambridge, and Berks, and also the right of holding Markets and fairs in Orwell Manor; it is therefore not improbable that he resided at Orwell during his father's lifetime. Sold his Manor of Denchesworth to Adam Fettiplace, whoin 1245 was Mayor of Oxford: a copy of his grant of these lands is to be seen in the Bodleian Library, Oxford (Ashmoleian M.S.S., and see Appendix); appears to have sold his lands in Lincolnshire at an early date; sold 4.25 virgates "in bondis" and a further 15 acres of land in Keston to Jomes Lovel. In 1255, he and his wife sold their lands in Brunne to Gilbert Peche, and in 1257 they levied a fine with Simon de Leudon upon a mill and 11 acres of meadow in Lolham to their own use, they giving to Simon their suit and service every three weeks, which was their due for their tenement in Helpeston. Assessed to pay 2 marks towards the Aid for marrying the King's sister to the Roman Emperor on Flockthorpe Manor, held in chief by serjeanty as one Knight's fee; also similarly assessed for one fee in Essex (i.e. in Toppesfield), held of the Honor of Mandeville. Stated in the Hundred Rolls to have had in 1276 rights of gallows, of assay of bread and ale, and view of frank pledge in Stukeley Magna Manor, in which Manor moreover he did not permit the King's bailiffs to execute their writs. It is also related in these Rolls that he had rights of assay of bread and ale and view of frank pledge in Ditton Cameys (Wood Ditton) wherein also he had given up the customary payment of 2s a year to the Sheriffs Court; also rights of gallows and of assay of bread and ale in Burwell Manor and in Henxton; rights of assay of bread and ale in his lands in Pampesworth, but subject to the correction of the Crown officers, which limitation he had evaded for some ten years previous; similarly it is stated that in Essex, he had for 12 years prior to 1274 evaded the service due by him in Toppesfield twice a year at the Sheriff's Court. In 1254 Ralph de Cameys was at Bordeaux with the King, where he witnessed a Royal grant of free warren to Maurice de Birmingham. About this time he was fined for holding a tournament in Cambridge contrary to the command of the King, who had in 1245 forbidden any to be holden there or within five miles of that town. 1259 witnessed a charter of Sir Richard de St. Denys granting lands in Essex. 1264 obtained a charter to have a weekly market on Thursdays in Torpel Manor and also a yearly fair on the eve, festival and morrow of St. Giles' feast. Presented his cousin Nicholas de Cameys (see Cameys of Great Stukeley) to the Church of St. Mary's, Pilton. 1268 presented to the Church of Torpel (i.e. Ufford Church) and the same year to that of Tansor. In 1272, he was sued by Warinton de Barinton for pasturing in Barton, which adjoined Orwell. 1275 summoned by the King's Exchequer to pay a debt which he owed to on Haginus, a Jew of London, since the King had assigned the said debt to Odinus le Gask, a citizen of Genoa, in payment of a Crown debt due to the latter. In 1260 summoned to an assembly near Shrewsbury at the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin, with horse and arms to give the service due to the King in an expedition against Llewelyn, Prince of Wales. Mentioned as one of the leading Barons confederate with Simon de Montfort, Earl of Leicester, in rebellion against Henry III, and in 1265 was declared a rebel by the King; after the Baron's victory at Lewes he was summoned by the Earl of Leicester to London on 14th December 1264 as one of the council of State by whom the realm was governed. In 1267 he received the King's pardon.

At a general proffer of Knight's service taken in 1276 for the King at Tweedmouth, Ralph de Cameys offered the service of one Knight for his lands in Norfolk, to be made by Richard de Macyand John Tylnercy with two equipped horses. In a Roll of Arms of the reign of Henry III and Edward I is given "d'Camais-or, on achief gules three plates". Died prior to 12th March 1277 in which year by inquisiton post mortem, he was found to have died seised of Hardington Manor (i.e. Flockthorpe), Norfolk, wherein he was found by juries to have possessed a messuage (i.e. indemesne) of 280 acres of arable land, 24 acres of meadow, 24 acres of alder and 50 acres of wood: Torpell Manor, with lands in Upton, Cotterstoke, Glapthorne, Pilketon and Tannesour, Northants: Stiveclay Manor, Hunts: Hengeston Manor, Orwell Manor and advowson, Woodacton (Wood Ditton) and Borewell Manors, Cambridge: and Wodington (Wotton) Manor, held of the Honor of Gloucester, Surrey. Married Ascelina, daughter and heiress of Roger de Torpel of Torpel, Northants, by his wife Mabel; the latter had Cotterstoke in dower, to the church of which she presented in 1258.
1188 - 1259 Ralph Camoys 71 71 Note: Lord Ralph de Cameis: Baron by tenure of Flockthorpe Manor. Aminor at his father's death, as already stated; in the scutagelevied by King John in 1201 and finally collected by 1212, hisguardian David, Earl of Huntingdon is first mentioned as havingexemption from scutage on one fee in Norfolk (i.e. Flockthorpe)and subsequently the name of Ralph de Cameis is substituted. Oncoming of age, he paid the King a relief, as a Baron, andreceived livery of his lands in Essex, Norfolk, Suffolk,Cambridge, Hunts, and Northants; in 1211 he still owed 10 marksfor his lands in Essex. Inherited from his father, FlockthorpeManor with a quarter of a Knight's fee in Hardingham and theadvowson of the latter, Norfolk, certain lands in Suffolk, aManor in Toppesfield Lete, Essex, held of the Honor of Clare,the Manor of Wood Ditton, Cambridge, held in chief, GreatStukeley Manor, Hunts, and half a Knight's fee in Tansor,Northants, all previously referred to; from his mother heinherited Wotton Manor, Surrey, and North Denchworth Manor,Berks, both as aforesaid. He appears to have acquired by hiswife Burwell Manor (16) Cambridge, one Knight's fee held of theHonor of Richmond: certain further lands in the Lete ofToppesfield, Essex, held as one Knight's fee of the Honor ofMandeville: lands in Tisted and Hambledon, Hants, (17) and landsin Eling and Lasham, (18) also in the last named county.
In 1208 he levied a fine on his lands in Cambridge; mentioned in1211 as holding one Knight's fee of the King in chief inFlockthorpe, Norfolk. In 1212, he claimed the right ofpresentation to Tansor Church, stating that Roger, Earl of Clarehad granted this advowson with the lands he held in Tansor toEobert Fitz Humphrey, his forefather. It would appear that heonly had the alternate right of presentation and therefore hisclaim on this occasion was disallowed; but twelve years later,in 1224, he presented the living. Claimed one Knight's fee inBerton and Eastmore in Baron Burial Manor, Norfolk, from Ralphde Roucester, of which he stated Ralph Wallensis, uncle ofStephen his father, was seised in the reign of Henry II. Hefarmed from the Crown at one time the Manor of Hengham, Norfolk,the payment for which was œ25. 7s. 6d. In 1210 was with theRoyal Army in Ireland and is mentioned as receiving 3 and 4marks at the camp at Odiham, Hants, and at Dublin, respectively,on account of disbursements; in 1212 assessed to pay 20s scutagefor the war against Scotland on one fee held in Norfolk, butbeing granted exemption by writ he received free quittanceaccordingly. In 1216, he joined the forces of the Barons,combined against the King John, consequently on 25th March ofthat year the King granted to Imbert de Hereford all his land inNorfolk, Suffolk, Northants, Hunts, Cambridge and Essex. Itseems probable however, that he never lost actual possession ofhis lands, as King John died shortly afterwards, and Ralphhastened to pay homage to Henry III, who by writs dated 6thSeptember and 27th October 1217 restored his lands to him. OnFebruary 19th, 1221, he was commanded to take scutage from theArchbishop of York for all the latter's lands in his Baillia,from which it may be presumed that he was then Sheriff ofcertain counties. From 1242 to 1246 as "Ralph de Keymes", heappears a Sheriff of Counties Surrey and Sussex. April 20th,1230, granted letters of protection when embarking with manyother nobles from Portsmouth on the King's service abroad; in1242, paid 10 marks as voluntary scutage for his lands in Essex,towards the fine from those Knights who did not go with the Kingto Gascony; 12th May 1244, the Sheriff of Huntingdon wascommanded to distrain him to do homage to John de Bailliol for aquarter of a Knight's fee in that county (i.e. Stukeley MagnaManor), assigned by the King to the said John and Devorguillahis wife as part of her share of the heritage of John, Earl ofChester and Huntingdon. In 1246, granted free quittance fromscutage on Flockthorpe for the army against Wales and also forscutage on half a fee in Cambridge. Prior to 1253, he appears tohave granted Denchworth Manor, aforesaid to his son. In 1253-4as "Ralph de Cameys Senior", he was granted free warren in allhis lands he then held in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridge and Essex;and in the latter year was assessed to pay 20s for half a fee inCambridge (i.e. Wood Ditton), both held in chief, towards theAid on the King's son coming of age; the year following, helevied fines on his lands in Ditton Cammays (Wood Ditton),Kertling and Cheveley, Cambridge.

In 1256, he was summoned "with horse and arms" to the GreatCouncil to be held in London on the Morrow of the Apostles Simonand Jude; and in 1258 was summoned to attend the King at Chesteron Monday preceding the Feast of St. John Baptist, with horseand arms to do service against the Welsh.

In a Roll of Arms of the reign of Henry III and dated as between1240-45, the armorial bearings of Ralph de Cameys are give as"d'or ung cheif de goules a trois torteux d'argent". Died priorto 1259 in which year by inquisitions post mortem, he was foundto have died seised of Flockthorpe Manor, including 280 acres ofland in demesne and 34 in meadow, with the advowson of the Church (i.e. Hardingham Church) and "Conteshall maner' extent"(19), all in Norfolk: Wodeton Manor, Surrey: Stivecley MagnaManor, Hunts: two Knight's fees in Essex: Ditton and BurwellManors, Cambridge, and lands in Tisted and Hambledon, Hampshire.
1195 Asceline de Torpel 1160 - 1259 Stephen de Cameis 99 99 Note: Lord Stephen de Cameis: Baron by tenure of Flockthorpe Manor,Norfolk, unquestionably inherited, with the lands and advowsonof Hardinghom and the Manor of Cemeis, from his father, asprobably also the lands in Tansour, Northants and Toppesfield,Essex, already referred to. Probably granted by Richard I theManor of Wood Ditton, (10) Cambridgeshire, held in chief as halfa Knight's fee and by annual payment of 2s to the Sheriffscourt; appears to have been granted by David, Earl of Huntingdona Manor in Stukeley Magna, (11) Hunts, which he held as aquarter of a Knight's fee from the said Earl; also held lands inSuffolk. Died before 1198 in which year the King sold thewardship of his children to the Earl of Huntingdon, as appearsfrom the following account in the Pipe Roll among the newpayments due during that year under counties Cambridge andHuntingdon, "Earl David owes 200 marks for having the wardshipof the land and the "heir" of Stephen de Cameis in the whole ofhis property, saving thereout his service to the King (i.e. forthose lands held in chief), and because the Earl may not dividethat Estate (baronies were not divisible) he also returns an account in Northamptonshire." Consequently the same year under Northamptonshire there is and entry that "Earl David returns anaccount as to 200 marks for having wardship of the estate and ofthe "heirs" of Shephen de Cameis."

The following year the Earl still owed 50 marks under the same head in Northants. Married Matilda, daughter of Gilbert de laLeghe, of la Leghe, Effingham and Polesden, Surrey, whose family bore "or, on a chevron sable 3 lions rampant argent, armed and langued gules"; she held in her own right a Manor in North Denchworth, Berks (12) as two parts of a Knight's fee held ofthe Honor of Giffard, which Honor was then possessed by Walter Marshall, Earl of Pembroke, and also lands in Wiseley, Surrey; It seems evident that she held in addition as her dower the Manor of Wotton (13), Surrey, on Knight's fee held of the Honorof Clare and worth yearly œ15. 13s. 0d. In the reign of King John, the Abbot of Chertsey claimed (12) the wardship of he rheir because, as he stated, her father had held from him a freetenement in Effingham (adjoining Wotton), whereupon Matilda replied that being dowered she was free from his claims. On 29th October 1214, the King commanded Simon de Patishull and his companions to bring Matilda de Cameis and (? her son) Nicholasde Ainesti to Court (14), evidently fearing her influence overher eldest son Ralph de Cameis, as two years later it is stated that "Matilda de Cames had her son with the Barons, "i.e. in arms against King John. She married secondly prior to 1206 Hughde Anestie.
1165 Matilda de la Leghe 1135 - 1189 Stephen de Cameis 54 54 Stephen de Cameis: Baron by tenure of Flockthorpe Manor, Norfolk, which wit the lands and advowson of Hardingham, and the Manor of Cemeis he undoubtedly inherited from his father; probably also succeeded to the lands in Tansour and Toppesfield aforesaid. Between 1154-57 he witnessed a charter of Gilbert de Clare, second Earl of Hereford, certifying the gift by King Henry of the churches of Wirecesbury (Wrasbury) and Langly to the Abbot of Gloucester (6). He is also mentioned in the Pipe Roll of 1186 amongst the Barons of Norfolk, as owing 20s scutage because he did not join the King's army against the Welsh, and is again referred to in 1189 as still owing 15s. Married a daughter of .....Wallensis (i.e. the Welshman) and sister of Ralph Wallensis.  1142 Wallensis 1110 William de Cameis William de Cameis: who may be assumed to have inherited Flockthorpe and Hardingham, with the advowson of the latter, as also the Manor of Cemeis in South Wales; witnessed as "Williamde Chames," a charter (6) of Ralph the son of Stephen, tempore King Henry (1100-35), granting Pethsage in his Manor of Winterbourne, Gloucestershire, to the monastery of St. Peter's Gloucester. Married a daughter of Robert Fitz Humphrey (7) whose family held large estates in Toppesfield and Gelham, Essex (7a) and who would appear to have been a connection of the Bec family, being heir to a Mabel de Bec; by this lady he appears to have acquired half a Knights fee in Tansour (7a), Northants, held of the Honor of Clare, with the alternate right of presentation to its church, and probably also a Manor in Toppesfield, Essex, likewise held of the Honor of Clare.  1115 Fitz- Humphrey 1085 Stephen de Cameis Stephen de Cameis: Baron by tenure of Flockthorpe Manor held in chief by serjeanty and "per baroniam"; also held in chief 1/4 Knight's fee in Hardingham, with the advowson of the latter. He undoubtedly also held the Manor of Cemeis in South Wales. Mentioned in the Pipe Roll of 1131 as one of the sureties of Blehien de Mabuderi and his brothers in Caermarthenshire who had been fined 7 marks of silver for carrying off the daughter of Bleheri by force. Granted to the Abbey of Wymondham a windmillin Flockthorpe with the "scite and suit", saving to himself the grinding of corn for his family and the tithe thereof to the Church of St. George, Hardingham. Married Mabel, daughter of Walter de Bec, who held lands in Norfolk and was possessor of a castle in Caermarthenshire which in 1135 was captured and burnt by the Welsh; he was third son of Walter de Bec, lord of large estates in Flanders, to whom William I had granted Eresby andother lands in Lincolnshire; his family bore "gules, a crossmoline argent". Lady Mabel with the consent of her sons gave tothe Church of Holy Trinity, Norwich, in the Chapter House by adeed without date witnessed by Alan, priest of Flockthorpe, and others, 20s a year out of her Manor of Herpele, otherwise Uphall, in Harpley, Norfolk, for the souls of her father and mother and her other relations, as well predecessors as successors; in 1109 by another deed witnessed by the aforesaid priest and others, she gave to the same church and to the monks her brethern serving God there, all her land in Herpele with all her men and all its appurtenances, which came to her from her ancestors and was her own proper patrimony and inheritance, with the consent of her husband and sons. These grants as also that of her husband are preserved amongst the registers of Norwich Cathedral (4), together with a Bull of Pope Eugenius confirming the gift of "that noble woman Mabilia de Bec."  1090 Mabel de Bec 1045 - 1109 John de Camays 64 64 John de Cameys: mentioned (1) in a List, supplemental to the Roll of Battel Abbey, of Normans who remained alive after the battle of Hastings, 14th October 1066 and were advanced to "the signories of England"; probably was at the conquest of Glamorganshire in 1091, receiving as his share of the lands snatched from the Welsh, the lands of Cemeis, from which he then took his cognomen. Either he or his son were afterwards granted by William I or William II a Manor in Flockthorpe (2) Norfolk, to hold from the King as one Knight's fee by serjeanty and "perbaroniam" (3) and also a quarter of a Knight's fee in Hardingham (2) adjoining Flockthorpe, to hold in chief by military service, together with the advowson of Hardingham Church. Died prior to1109; married....  1065 - 1131 Walter de Bec 66 66 1035 Walter de Bec 1075 Robert Fitz- Humphrey 1120 - 1185 Harry Wallensis 65 65 1124 Agnes 1140 Gilbert de la Leghe 1175 - 1229 Roger de Torpel 54 54 1178 Mabel 1155 - 1225 Roger de Torpel 70 70 1158 - 1220 Asceline de Waterville 62 62 1138 - 1176 Roger de Torpel 38 38 1112 - 1160 Robert Peverell 48 48 1124 - 1162 Geoffrey de Waterville 38 38 1124 Ascelina Peverell Matilda Waterville 1103 Robert de Waterville 1120 Adelicia Deincourt 1048 Fouque de Aulnay 1050 Albreda 1045 Hawise 1056 Amauri de Montfort 1014 - 1058 Hugh Bardoul de Broyes 44 44 Elizabeth de Sours 1066 - 1128 Etienne Flamdrensis le Fleming 62 62 1068 Freskin le Fleming 1072 Philip de Flanders 1075 Ogiva de Flanders 1151 - 1228 Maud de Waterville 77 77 1070 Ascelin de Wateville 1045 Robert de Wateville 1022 - 1086 Guillaume de Wateville 64 64 1047 - 1085 William de Wateville 38 38 1049 Maud de Wateville 1098 - 1137 Payne FitzJohn de Lacy 39 39 PAYN FITZJOHN, probably 1st son and heir, was born before 1100. 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 charters. In 1126 he became the King's vice-gerent 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 January 1135/6. At Easter Payn was with Stephen at Westminster and he proceeded with the King to Oxford.

He married Sibyl, daughter of Geoffrey TALBOT, by Agnes, probably daughter of Walter DE LACY. Payn gave Sibyl as dower land from his own inheritance. He was killed when pursuing Welsh marauders by a javelin which pierced his head, and so died s.p.m. 10 July 1137 and was buried in the chapter-house of Gloucester Abbey. Sibyl survived him (j). [Complete Peerage XII/2:270-1, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

(j) Shortly after her husband's death the Bishop of Salisbury, as Chief Justiciar, ordered her to restore the property of her late husband removed by her since the confirmation of his possessions to their elder daughter, Cecily and her husband Roger, son of Miles de Gloucester, in particular the wheat, hay and wine. As Sybil de Lacy, for her soul and for the soul of her lord Pay FitzJohn, she confirmed a grant to her uncle, Walter de Lacy, Abbot of Gloucester.
