(Sir) Maurice de BERKELEY. (The Magnanimous). Third Lord Berkeley. (1271-1326).

Born in April (1271-S1,S3)(1281-S1,S2) at Berkeley, Gloucestershire, England; son of Thomas de BERKELEY, second Lord Berkeley, and Joan de FERRERS [F59304961].

He married (1) Eva la ZOUCHE in 1289. He was involved in the Scottish Wars from about 1295 to 1318. He acceded on 16 August 1308. Governor of Gloucester 1312, Governor of Berwick-on-Tweed 1314.

The Morris Clan

(Sir) Eudo la ZOUCHE

(Sir) Eudo la ZOUCHE. (Ivo, Eon, Eudes, Eoun, Youn, Ivo, Ivonet).
Born about 1244 at Ashby, Lincolnshire, England.

Sir Eudes has traditionally been identified as the brother of Sir Alan la Zouche, of Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire.

While source 4 maintains that this is still the case, researcher Douglas Richardson (S2) gives credible evidence that suggests that Sir Eudes might actually be the son, not brother, of Sir Alan la Zouche. The evidence consisted of a lawsuit which showed that Sir Eudes la Zouche's widow, Milicent, claimed dower in property which clearly had been inherited by Sir Alan la Zouche's wife, Ellen de Quincy. Presumably this property passed by gift of Ellen de Quincy to Sir Eudes la Zouche. Such a gift would be easily explained if Sir Eudes was the son of Ellen de Quincy. {S2}.

The published account of the partition of the estates of Sir Roger de Quincy, Earl of Winchester, is found in Report on the MSS of Reginald Rawdon Hastings, Esq. 1 (Hist. MSS Comm. 78) (1928): 323-342. Richardson believes that a review of the inheritance of Ellen de Quincy, and its future disposition, will show correct relationships with her children; in this case, whether or not Sir Eudes is indeed her son. {S2}.

Source 5 says he is the son of Roger la ZOUCHE (1199-1238) and Margaret, but gives no source. {S5}.

He resided at Haryngworth, England. {S5}.

Grant of 30 m. p.a. till K. provide more 27 Ap. 1261.{S3}.

Livery to him Chester Beeston, and Shotwick Cas. of P. Edw. to keep and defend, 26 Dec. 1262. {S3}.

He probably had a first marriage. {S3}.

In 1265 Eudo la Zouche with Sir William la Zouche, chaplain are among those rewarded after the Battle of Evesham.

He married Millicent de CANTILUPE before 1273 at Albergaveny, Monmouthshire, Wales.

Livery to him and w. Milicent, sis. coh. of Geo. de Cantilupo: manors, late of said George at Eyton, Houton in Beds., Haringworth, Beruby, Rowell, and Bolewik, Northants., Bridgewater and Edenworth, Som., Calston, Bridmerston, Roele, and Calne, Wilts., Corneworthy, Dartmouth, and Totness, Devon, Moles-Bracy, Salop, Stok St. Edwald, Dors., Hamme, Bucks., Byngele, Yorks., Baseford, Notts., and Hereford, 1 Mar. (C.R.and F.R.), with their share of his lands in Ireland 30 May 1274 (F.R.), and in Craudon Manor and rents at Newbury, Spenhamland, and Wodespene Manors, Berks. {S3}.

3 June 1275 Grant to him and Milicent forfeiture in their ports so long as K. receives custom on wool and hides exported 16 Nov. 1275 (P.R.). {S3}.

Sumd to serve agst. Welsh, he acknowledges 1-1/2 Fee for Milicent, and will serve in person with a serjeant, 1 Jy. 1277 (P.W.). {S3}.

He and Millicent nominate attorneys in Ireland 14 June 1278, and have Protection there 28 Ap.1279 (P.R.).{S3}.

He died before 25 June 1279.

Millicent de CANTILUPE. (Milicent Cantelou, Cauntelo)(CANTILUPE-S5)(CAUNTELO-S6). .
Born about 1250 at Calne, Wiltshire, England; daughter of William de CANTILUPE and Eva de BRAOSE. (William de Cauntelo and Eve de Briouze). Milicent Cantilupe had probably married (1) John Monte Alto (Roger John Montalt, de Monealto, Mahaut) by 1255. As a result of this marriage, 19 hides of property in Bingley were assigned [by] Sir William de Cantilupo to John de Montealto, with his daughter (Elienora presedicta tenet eas de Milisanta de Monte Alto matre sua). {S3}.

She married (2) Eudo la ZOUCHE before 1273 at Abergavenny, Monmouthshire, Wales.

Milicent de Cantelowe, widow of Sir Eudes la Zouche, claimed dower in Syston, Leicestershire in Michaelmas term, 1280 against Ranulph [Fitz Robert] de Neville and his wife, Eupheme de Clavering. Syston came into the Zouche family through Eupheme de Clavering's maternal grandmother, Ellen de Quincy, wife of Sir Alan la Zouche, which Ellen was daughter and co-heiress of Sir Roger de Quincy, Earl of Winchester. Surviving records show that Sir Roger de Quincy held the "town" of Syston, Leicestershire in 1251. {S2}.

This is the record of Milicent de Cantelowe's suit for dower at Syston as given by George F. Farnham:{S2}.

"Milicent who was the wife of Eudo la Zouche v. Ralph de Nevill and Eufemia his wife in a plea of a third part of 12 messuages, 4 cottages, 11 virgates of land, etc., in Sytheston [Syston] as dower." Date: Michaelmas 1280. [Reference: George F. Farnham, Leicestershire Medieval Village Notes: histories of manors and villages, including vital records of persons and families, unpaginated, citing De Banco Roll 36. Michaelmas, 9 Edward I. 1280. m. 113d. Leic.].{S2}.

Presumably the only way for Sir Eudes la Zouche to have obtained his rights at Syston, Leicestershire would be by grant or gift of Ellen de Quincy, wife of Sir Alan la Zouche.{S2}.

Letters Patent of Milicent de Monte Alto,widow," dated 12 March 1280-1281. name among her household "Thomas la Zusche,then steward of her household." This Thomas is said from this to be her son, but is probably instead the younger brother of her husband. {S3}.

The Esquires Of The King's Household Page 16


That Sir William de Beauchamp was a friend to Chaucer has been recognized for some time. In May 1888 Mr. W. D. Selby called attention to this connection with Chaucer in a short article in The Athenaeum. In this article Mr. Selby gave a few facts about him, gathered professedly from Dugdale, but omitted all mention of the curious connection Sir William de Beauchamp had with the property of the Earl of Pembroke, for his custodianship of which Chaucer was one of the sureties.

To return now to one matter in which Chaucer is closely connected with William de Beauchamp

In 1378 the King granted William de Beauchamp the custody of the Castle and estates of Pembroke, in his hands by reason of the minority of the Earl of Pembroke. The father of the last Earl of Pembroke, John de Hastings, had, by license from the crown, settled all his possessions, in the event of failure of his own issue, except the Castle and town of Pembroke, upon his cousin William de Beauchamp (his mother's sister's son) [Footnote: Surrey Arch. Coll. XVH, 29, 30.] These lands were in the hands of the King in 1378 because John de Hastings had died and his son was still a minor; naturally he appointed the next heir custodian of them. But William de Beauchamp's management of the estates was certainly not satisfactory and, if the suretyship of Chaucer was anything but a form, the poet stood a good chance of losing by it. 

The first notice we find of Beauchamp's unsatisfactory management is in 1386, when a commission was appointed to enquire touching the waste in the possessions of John de Hastyngs by William de Beauchamp, to whom the King had committed the custody of the land. In the same year we find record of an indenture made between Margaret Mareschall, countess of Norfolk, guardian of John de Hastyngs, and the said John, on the one side, and William de Beauchamp on the other, whereby the latter agreed to surrender his custody of the estates, and the former in return to free him of liability for the "waste." [Footnote: Cal. Pat. Roll, p. 257.] 

In 1389 the King appointed a commission to enquire touching the waste in the lands of the alien priory of Kirkeby Monachorum, county Warwick, in the time of William de Beauchamp, Knight, farmer thereof. [Footnote: idem, p. 350. i idem, p. 208.]

In 1390 we find a "Revocation for reasons declared before the King and council in the present parliament, with the assent of the nobles, magnates, etc., of recent letters granting during pleasure to William de Beauchamp the custody of the lands, tenements, etc. of John de Hastyngs." [Footnote: Whether these were part of the Pembroke holdings or not, I do not know.] In the same year the custody was regranted to John Golafre, Knight of the King's chamber, at a farm of L600 (Beauchamp had paid L500). [Footnote: Gal. Pat. Roll, p. 180.]

In 1390, however, the young Earl of Pembroke was killed in a tournament, and according to the provisions made by his father, the estates devolved upon William de Beauchamp. Other heirs contested his rights to them, but he won. A curious story told about his claim, is as follows: "Beauchamp invited his learned counsel to his house in Paternoster Row in the city of London; amongst whom were Robert Charlton (then a judge), William Pinchbek, William Brenchesley, and John Catesby (all learned lawyers); and after dinner, coming out of his chapel in an angry mood, threw to each of them a piece of gold and said: 'Sirs, I desire you forthwith to tell me, whether I have any right and title to Hasting's lordships and lands!' Whereupon Pinchbek stood up (the rest being silent, fearing that he suspected them) and said: 'No man here, nor in England, dare say that you have any right in them, except Hastings [Footnote: Evidently Edward Hastings, a contesting heir.] quit his claim therein; and should he do it 'being now under age, it would be of no validity.'" (Dugdale).

In 1387 [Footnote: According to Beltz, p. 229]when Richard II was preparing for his assault upon the Gloucester faction with which William de Beauchamp was evidently, as his brother the Earl of Warwick was certainly, connected, he tried to remove Beauchamp from the office of Captain of Calais, by messenger. Beauchamp refused to leave the office, "saying that he received that charge and trust publicly from the King, in the presence of his nobles, and therefore would not quit it in a private manner" (Dugdale). When his successor arrived, Beauchamp arrested him, and took him to England. There Beauchamp himself was arrested but was soon released.

In 1393 he was summoned to Parliament as Baron Bergavenny (a title received in connection with the Pembroke estates). From 1390-96 I find reference to grants of land made by him to religious bodies. He seems to have been rather in disfavour in these closing years of Richard II's reign, but under Henry IV he received new grants, of the manor of Feckenham, rent-free, and of the custody of the Castle and county of Pembroke. He died 12 Henry IV and was buried in Black Friars, Hereford.

He married Joan, second sister and coheir of Thomas Fitz Alen, Earl of Arundel. He was a Knight of the Garter. Dugdale prints (in his Warwickshire) the wills of William de Beauchamp and his wife, remarkable medieval documents.

Ashby-de-la-Zouch -  , — Zouch being pronounced  "Zoosh" — often shortened to Ashby, is a small market town and civil parish in North West Leicestershire, England, within the National Forest. It is twinned with Pithiviers in north-central France. ... The castle was of importance from the 15th to the 17th centuries. 

Ashby de la Zouch Castle - is in the town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire, England (grid reference SK36061659).

The site originated as a Norman fortified manor house in the 12th century founded by Alain de Parrhoet, la Zouch, out of Breton, France.[4] During the next three centuries it was extended by his descendants, but when the Zouch succession line ended in the 14th Century, the castle changed ownership many times. In 1461, the castle reverted to the Crown after the then owner James Butler, the 5th Earl of Ormonde, was executed after the Battle of Towton.


There is also a Ireland connection: 1255-59 - Alain de la Zouche - Viceroy of Ireland

The Project Gutenberg E-text of The Viceroys of Ireland, by Charles O'Mahony
This viceroyalty was the first to which a definite salary was given, the sum of £580 a year being set aside for the use of Geoffery de Marreis. Richard de Burgh followed De Marreis until, in 1229, Maurice FitzGerald assumed the reins of government. Fitzgerald was born in Ireland, and was the first Anglo-Irishman to become Viceroy of Ireland. His viceroyalty extended over fifteen years, though at intervals the government was in the hands of Geoffery de Marreis and Richard de Burgh for a few months. The viceroy was given a salary of £500 a year, and unlimited authority to rob the native Irish, and even the English colony, provided he sent part of the proceeds to London to help to pay the king's debts and finance wars. But he fell from grace in 1245, and was dismissed, the reason given being his dilatoriness in bringing reinforcements to his royal master in Wales. Jean Fitz-Geoffery was appointed his successor, and during the ensuing ten years the government was nominally vested in him, minor changes occurring from time to time.

The next viceroy, Alain de la Zouche, reigned for four years (1255-59), and died as the result of an assault made upon him by the Earl of Warrene and {23} Surrey in Westminster Hall, while his successor, Etienne, who had married the widow of the second Hugh de Lacy, was murdered in 1260.
