Individual Note 2

Elizabeth was the eldest daughter of Richard Fitz-Alan the 11th Earl of Arundel and his wife Elizabeth de Bohun. Both the Fitz-Alan and Bohun family lines were among the highest in the peerage of medieval England. Elizabeth Fitz-Alan had a double line of direct descent from the Plantagenet Kings of England. Through her mother's Bohun line she was a direct descendant of King Edward I and Eleanor of Castile, and through her Fitz-Alan ancestry a direct descendant of King Henry III and Eleanor of Provence. She was also related by cousinship to both King Henry IV and to his first wife Mary Bohun. Elizabeth was born before 1372, (in 1415 she was given as aged 40 or more), and a best estimate would be closer to 1367. By December of 1378 she would be married to her first husband William de Montagu, son of the Earl of Salisbury. This marriage for Elizabeth would certainly have been in her childhood. William de Montagu was killed in a tilting match at Windsor in 1382. Elizabeth Fitz-Alan would marry as her 2nd husband Thomas Mowbray, the Earl of Nottingham and later the Duke of Norfolk, in July of 1384. This marriage would last for 15 years until Thomas Mowbray's death in Venice on September 22, 1399. Elizabeth would have 2 sons and 2 daughters during her marriage with Thomas Mowbray. The sons were Thomas Mowbray 1385-1405 and John Mowbray 1390-1432, (both of these sons would assume the title Earl of Nottingham), the 2 daughters were Margaret who married Sir Robert Howard, and Isabel who married Henry Ferrers. In 1397 Thomas Mowbray was among those who accused and condemed Elizabeth's father Richard Fitz-Alan, the Earl of Arundel. Richard Fitz-Alan was found guilty of treason and be-headed at Cheapside on September 21, 1397. One apocryphal rumor even had Thomas Mowbray as the actual executioner of his father-in-law Richard Fitz-Alan. The now twice widowed Duchess of Norfolk would next marry Sir Robert Goushill (see his entry in Family Historian). After the death of Sir Robert Goushill at Shrewsbury in 1403, she would marry Sir Gerald Usflete of Yorkshire as her fourth husband before April 18, 1411. Sir Gerald Usflete was the steward of the Duchy of Lancaster in Lincolnshire. Elizabeth Fitz-Alan would become a co-heiress of her brother Thomas, Earl of Arundel and Surrey, in 1415. (Thomas had died sans progeny on October 13, 1415, and his sisters had become his heirs). Sir Gerald Usflete died by Feb. 1420/21, having written his will on September 13, 1420. No children were born to Elizabeth Fitz-Alan and Gerald Usflete.


Elizabeth Fitz-Alan would live on after the death of her fourth husband Gerald Usflete until her own death on July 8, 1425. It is believed that she returned to Hoveringham in her final years. Born in the reign of King Edward III, she would live through the reigns of Richard II, Henry IV, Henry V, and into the reign of Henry VI. Through blood and marriage, Elizabeth Fitz-Alan would be closely touched by nearly all of the events in this period of turbulence, violence, and political turmoil in English history.4

Individual Note 3

Elizabeth Arundel was born about 1371 (aged 44 in 1415). She married her first husband, William De Montagu, Knight, before December 1378. He was the son and heir apparent of William de Montagu, 2nd Earl of Salisbury, by his 2nd wife, Elizabeth, daughter and co-heiress of John Mohun, Knight of the Garter, 2nd Lord Mohun. They had no issue. He was killed in a tilting match at Windsor, Berkshire on 6 August 1382. Elizabeth married Thomas Mowbray, Knight of the Garter, 1st Duke of Norfolk, Earl of Nottingham, Earl Marshal, 6th Lord Mowbray, Lord Segrave in July 1384. They had five children. He died of pestilence at Venice, Italy on 22 September 1399 and was buried in the Abbey of St George in Venice. She married her 3rd husband, Robert Goushill (or Gousehill), knight, of Hoveringham, Nottinghamshire, and Barlborough and Killamarsh, Derbyshire, son and heir of Nicholas de Goushill, Knight, of Hoveringham, Nottinghamshire. They married without the king's license before 19 August 1401 when her dower lands were ordered back into the king's hands. They had three daughters, John, Elizabeth and Joyce. Elizabeth was pardoned 28 September 1401 and her lands were restored. Sir Robert Goushill was slain at the Battle of Shrewsbury 21 July 1403. she married her 4th husband before 18 April 1411 (date of indenture) Gerard Usflete, knight, of Swanland, North Ferriby, and Ousefleet (in Whitgift), Yorkshire, steward of the Duchy of Lancaster in Lincolnshire, son and heir of Gerard Usflete, knight, of Swanland, North Ferriby, and Ousefleet (in Whitgift), Yorkshire, by Eleanor, daughter of Ralph Legard, of Anlaby. They had no issue. Elizabeth was co-heiress in 1415 to her brother, Thomas Arundel, Knight of Bath, Knight of the Garter, Earl of Arundel and Surrey, Chief Butler of England, Treasurer of England. Sir Gerard Usflete left a will dated 13 September 1420, proved 12 February 1430/31. Elizabeth, countess of Norfolk, died 8 July 1425, and was buried with her 3rd husband in Hoveringham, Nottinghamshire.5

Individual Note 4

After this table had been cast in nearly its present form, we became aware of the study by Carl Boyer, 3rd, Medieval English Ancestors of Robert1 Abell, and its companion work, Medieval English Ancestors of Certain Americans (both Santa Clarita, California, 2001), which together trace the majority, at least, of Elizabeth FitzAlan’s English ancestry. Therefore, we shall keep this page here for what it is worth, and correct any errors which come to our attention, but we have no immediate intention of extending its scope.


For many Americans, Elizabeth FitzAlan, wife of (among others) Robert Goushill, is a unique gateway ancestress to European royal descent. The genealogical importance of Elizabeth Fitzalan and of the two husbands by whom she left issue was underscored by Roberts in his 1977 article “The Mowbray Connection.”[1] Although her second husband, Thomas de Mowbray, afterward 1st Duke of Norfolk, was also an ancestor of many Americans, her third husband, Robert Goushill, who was not her social equal, has no known royal descent, and so any such descents from this couple must be reckoned through her.


Roberts, in his 1977 article, p. 4, states that Elizabeth FitzAlan and Robert Goushill were ancestors of 41 of the 450 (later to become 500) immigrants in his study. Now Roberts, in The Royal Descents of 500 Immigrants (RD500), and Faris, in Plantagenet Ancestry of Seventeenth-Century Colonists, 2nd ed., in fact between them conspicuously identify 42 immigrants descended from this couple, whom we list in the following table.[2] But some of these may be more recent discoveries than those Roberts had in mind when writing in 1977, and it is possible that some members of the original group may be concealed under the names of families from whom they could claim “better” descents, i.e. falling closer to the main stem of the English royal family.[3] If any reader can name others, we should be glad to know.


It should be noted that although we have cited Roberts’s accounts wherever available, they do not always give the descent from Elizabeth FitzAlan explicitly when it is not the subject’s “best” royal descent. However, some of the lines treated in Faris but not in RD500 are now treated in Roberts, The Royal Descents of 600 Immigrants (RD600) (2004).


Three quarters of Elizabeth FitzAlan’s entire ancestry are, in theory at least, given in W.H. Turton’s The Plantagenet Ancestry, as her paternal aunt, Alice FitzAlan, and her maternal grandmother, Elizabeth Badlesmere, were each direct ancestresses of Edward IV.[4] However, numerous corrections are required from later writings, such as G.A. Moriarty’s Plantagenet manuscript, which reworks some of the same ground. All this ancestry is also expected to be covered in Neil D. Thompson and Charles M. Hansen’s ongoing series in The Genealogist, “A Medieval Heritage: The Ancestry of Charles II, King of England,” but so far it has only reached Elizabeth’s paternal grandparents,[5] and it will presumably be quite some time before earlier generations are treated. A convenient summary of the progress is available through the Graphical Index to the Ancestry of Charles II at


Meanwhile, satisfactory accounts of many of her ancestral lines are supplied in G.E. Cokayne and G.W. Watson, Seize Quartiers of the Kings and Queens of England (Exeter, 1896; reprinted from The Genealogist), and in the similar ancestor-tables of British rulers and their spouses included in the first volume of Gerald Paget, The Lineage and Ancestry of H.R.H. Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, particularly since generations 3 through 5 of Elizabeth FitzAlan’s ancestry coincide with those of her double first cousin, Mary de Bohun, wife of Henry IV.[6] Many lines, both English and continental, are scattered through Ancestral Roots of Certain American Colonists, currently in its 7th edition (1992). The excellent treatment of the Fitzalans’ English royal descents in David Faris, Plantagenet Ancestry of Seventeenth-Century Colonists, has been followed closely.


It should be noted that this chart may be made to apply equally to its subject’s sister, Joan FitzAlan, wife of William de Beauchamp, who also has many American descendants: according to Faris, she and her husband were ancestors of Robert Abell, Grace Chetwode, St. Leger Codd, Edward Diggs, John Fisher, Warham Horsmanden, Anne Humphrey, Thomas Lansford, John Oxenbridge, Herbert Pelham, Katherine Saint Leger, Maria Johanna Somerset, and John West.[7] Finally, a third sister, Alice FitzAlan, may have been an ancestress of Barbara Aubrey, Elizabeth Coytemore, and Capt. William Poole.[8]


The present writer is not a mediaevalist, and this page makes no claim either to authority or originality. It is simply an attempt to gather some scattered documentation into a convenient form, in the hope that others more qualified will offer correction. (To that end, we were gratified to learn that it had been mentioned in the November 2003 update to Chris Phillips’ invaluable website Some notes on Medieval English Genealogy, at, which has brought it increased exposure.) Standard works such as the Dictionary of National Biography, the new Complete Peerage, Sanders’ English Baronies, and the first four volumes of the original edition of Europaïsche Staamtafeln (the only ones available to us) were routinely consulted, but in the interests of brevity were not cited except in the case of a controversial point.


Some immigrant descendants of Elizabeth FitzAlan & Robert Goushill

Nottingham, who d. 21 July 1403 of wounds received in the Battle of Shrewsbury, by whom she had two daughters, their father’s coheiresses. On this marriage, without the king’s permission, her dower lands were seized by the crown (19 Aug. 1401), but were subsequently restored before his death. Elizabeth FitzAlan and Robert Goushill were ancestors of H.M. Elizabeth, the late Queen Mother, in at least six lines.[11] She m. (4) before 18 April 1411, Gerard Usflete, Knt., whose will was proved in Feb. 1420/1.[12] She seems to have been buried with her third husband in Hoveringham church.


2 Richard FitzAlan III, 11th or 4th Earl of Arundel and 10th Earl of Surrey, b. 1345-47, beheaded 21 Sept. 1397 at Tower Hill, Cheapside, London, and buried in the Augustinian Church.[13] His sister, Alice, was a direct ancestress both of the brothers Edward IV and Richard III, of the latter’s wife Anne of Warwick, and of Henry VII.[14] He m.

4 Richard FitzAlan II, 10th or 3rd Earl of Arundel and 9th Earl of Surrey, Justiciar of North Wales, one of the Regents of England in 1355, b. 1313 (he came of age in 1334), d. 24 Jan. 1375/6 at Arundel, and buried at Lewes, near his wife. He was restored to his fathers honours and estates in 1330-31 (4 Edw. III). On 30 June 1347, on the death without legitimate issue of his maternal uncle, John, Earl of Surrey and Sussex, he succeeded to the estates of the Warenne family.[16] He m. (1) (marriage annulled 4 Dec. 1344) Isabel le Despenser, by whom he had issue. The Complete Peerage castigates this noble for his cynical treatment of this wife, in order whom to discard, he pursuaded the obsequious Pope Clement VI to bastardize his issue by her. His second wife was a first cousin to his first, and a papal dispensation was granted (retroactively, as it would seem) on 4 March 1344/5. In his interesting will, the earl requests burial “near to the tomb of Eleanor de Lancaster, my wife; and I desire that my tomb be no higher than hers; that no men at arms, horses, hearse, or other pomp, be used at my funeral, but only five torches … as was about the corpse of my wife, be allowed.” He leaves “to Richard, my son and heir, my best coronet, and I charge him on my blessing to keep it during his life, and then to leave it to his heir, and so to remain from heir to heir, Lords of Arundel, in remembrance of me.”[17] He m. (2) (as her second husband) 5 Feb. 1344/5 at Ditton,

5 Alianor of Lancaster, b. ca. 1318, d. 11 Jan. 1371/2 at Arundel, and buried at Lewes, widow (having been the second wife) of John de Beaumont, Knt., 2nd Lord Beaumont, Earl of Buchan (d. May 1342).[18] She was a second cousin of King Edward III. Her brother, Henry, Earl of Lancaster, was the maternal grandfather of King Henry IV.[19]

6 William de Bohun, knighted by July 1331, cr. 6th Earl of Northampton (1337), b. ca. 1312, d. 16 Sept. 1360. He m. (as her second husband) in 1335-38,

7 Elizabeth de Badlesmere, d. (testate) 8 June 1356, and buried in Walden Abbey, Essex, widow of Edmund de Mortimer, Lord Mortimer of Wigmore, and sister and coheiress of Giles de Badlesmere. By her first husband she was an ancestress of Edward V, the last Plantagenet king.[20]


8 Edmund FitzAlan, 9th or 2nd Earl of Arundel, Justice of Wales, b. 1 May 1285 in Marlborough Castle, knighted 22 May 1306, beheaded 17 Nov. 1326 at Hereford by the supporters of Queen Isabella. He was subsequently attainted, and all his estates and honours forfeited. He m. in 1305,

9 Alice de Warenne, living 1330 but d. before 23 May 1338, heiress in her issue of her brother, John, Earl of Surrey and Sussex.

11 Maud de Chaorces (modern Chaworth), her father’s sole heiress, b. on or about 2 Feb. 1282,[21] d. between 19 Feb. 1317 and 3 Dec. 1322, and buried at Mottisfont Priory, of which she was patron (as heir of William de Briwere, one of the founders).[22]

12 Humphrey de Bohun VIII, 4th Earl of Hereford and 3rd Earl of Essex, Hereditary Constable of England, b. ca. 1276 (aged 22 at his father’s death in 1298), slain 16 March 1321/2 in battle at Boroughbridge, dying testate, and buried in the church of the Friars Preachers at York.[23] He m. (as her second husband) 14 Nov. 1302 at Westminster,

13 Elizabeth of England, b. 7 Aug. 1282 at Rhuddlan Castle, co. Caernarvon, d. 5 May 1316 at Quendon, Essex, following childbirth, and buried at Walden Abbey, widow of Jan, Count of Holland and Zeeland.

14 Bartholomew de Badlesmere, of Badlesmere and Chilham Castle, Kent, cr. 1st Lord Badlesmere 1309, b. 1274-75 (aged 26 at the death of his father in 1301),[24] attainted, and hanged 14 April 1322. In 1328 he is recording as holding Hothfield, Kent, by serjeanty of Chamberlain to the Archbishop of Canterbury.[25] He m. before 20 June 1308,

15 Margaret de Clare, d. late in 1333, widow of Gilbert de Unfreville, and aunt and coheiress of Thomas de Clare, Steward of the Forest of Essex.


16 Richard FitzAlan I, feudal Lord of Clun and Oswestry in co. Salop, 8th or 1st Earl of Arundel, b. 3 Feb. 1266/7, d. 9 March 1302, and appears to have been buried in Haughmond Abbey, co. Salop.[26] He was created Earl of Sussex (Arundel) in 1289. He m. probably between Nov. 1281 and Nov. 1282,

17 Alasia del Vasto di Saluzzo, d. 25 Sept. 1292, and buried at Todingham Priory.[27] Her aunt, an elder Alasia del Vasto di Saluzzo, also married an Englishman, becoming the wife of Edmund de Lacy, Earl of Lincoln, in 1247. It was suggested by Wagner that the migration of these Savoyards to England was a result of the marriage in 1236 of Henry III to Éléanore de Provence, whose mother, Beatrix di Savoia, was a daughter of the ruling house,[28] and this is corroborated by Douglas Richardson’s discovery that the marriage was indeed arranged by Queen Eleanor.

18 William de Warenne, heir in his issue of Surrey, d. (possibly murdered) v.p. 15 Dec. 1286. His sister, Isabel, was the wife of John Baliol, King of Scotland.[29] He m. probably in June 1285,

Hants., b. 1253-54 (aged 25 at the death of his elder brother Pain in 1279), d. s.p.m. about 7 July 1283,[31] brother and heir of Pain de Chaorces III (d. s.p. 1279).[32] He m. (as her first husband),

23 Isabel de Beauchamp, d. 1306,[33] heiress of Hartley in Hampshire, sister of William de Beauchamp, 9th Earl of Warwick.[34] She m. (2) Sir Hugh le Despenser, by whom she had further issue.

24 Humphrey de Bohun VII, 3rd Earl of Hereford and 2nd Earl of Essex, Hereditary Constable of England (deprived 1297), b. about 1249 (aged “18½” in 51 Hen. III), d. 31 Dec. 1298 at Pleshey, Essex, and buried at Walden Priory, Essex. He m. 20 July 1275,

25 Maud de Fiennes, predeceased her husband, and was buried at Walden Abbey aforesaid. If her Dammartin descent is correct (see below), she was second cousin to Eleanor, wife of Edward I.[35]

32 John FitzAlan III, feudal Lord of Clun and Oswestry, co. Salop, d. 18 March 1271/2, and buried at Haughmond Abbey, co. Salop. Like his father, he never used the title of Earl of Arundel.[42] He m. (as her first husband) 1260,

At the coronation of Queen Eleanor in 1236, Gilbert de Sanford stated that (in the words of Round) “of ancient right from his predecessors, he ought to be the Queen’s Chamberlain and to have the custody that say of her chamber and her door, which right he obtained.”[61] Although his wife Lorette (le Zouche?) is often named as the mother of his daughter Alice (no. 39), this seems unlikely for, as noted by Douglas Richardson, Lorette conveyed her maritagium to a niece.[62]

Gary Boyd Roberts, “The Mowbray Connection,” The Connecticut Nutmegger, vol. 10, no. 1 (June 1977): 3-12, in which he describes his enormous unpublished project to trace their ancestors and descendants. See also, respecting this project, the same author’s The Royal Descents of 500 Immigrants (1993), pp. xvii-xxi.

2. In Roberts, see especially p. xix. In Faris, lines deriving from Elizabeth FitzAlan and Robert Goushill begin at pp. 38, 90, 101, 145, 152, 167, 212, 258, 259, 261, 264, 323, 326, 356, 357, 377, and 386, and in most cases footnotes draw attention to all colonial immigrants in each group of descent, but there are a few slips in this respect.

3. When Roberts was writing in 1977, he may have been including in his total two immigrants, William Fairfax, of Virginia, and Mary Launce, wife of the Rev. John Sherman, of Massachusetts, whom he had named as Goushill descendants in his unpublished manuscript The Mowbray Connection (our copy of which is dated 1966). However, the treatments of these two immigrants in RD500 (pp. 43 & 176, respectively), and in Faris, do not reveal obvious Goushill descents, and it would require some effort to examine their ancestries in sufficient detail to verify the statement. Mary Launce’s ancestry is treated with greater fullness in RD600, pp. 217, 370, etc., but still without revealing any obvious Goushill descent.

4. Turton, pp. 97, 72. Other strains of Elizabeth FitzAlan’s ancestry can also be found in this work, notably in pp. 25 (Fiennes) and 49 (Briouze). Indeed, apart from some of the ancestry deriving from one great-great-great-grandfather, Humphrey de Bohun VI (ancestor no. 48), Elizabeth FitzAlan’s earlier ancestry (generation 7 and back) is completely subsumed in that of Elizabeth, heiress of the Plantagenets.

35. The relationship to Queen Eleanor is pointed out in CP 6:466 n. a. The ancestry of her brother, Guillaume, is traced in Turton, p. 167. That of her brother, Robert, is traced in Edwin Jaquett Sellers, De Carpentier Allied Ancestry (Philadelphia, 1928), pp. 62 etc.

36. Page, 1:68, gives a five-generation ancestor table for him.

37. Some of her ancestry is treated in Szabolcs de Vajay, “From Alfonso VII to Alfonso X: The first two centuries of the Burgundian dynasty in Castile and Leon…,” Studies in Genealogy and Family History in tribute to Charles Evans on his eightieth birthday (Association for the Promotion of Scholarship in Genealogy Occasional Publications, no. 2), 366-417, at pp. 389-90, etc. There is also a five-generation ancestor table for her in Paget, 1:69.

38. Calendarium Genealogicum Henry III and Edward I, ed. Charles Roberts, 2:607. His parentage appears to be unknown. An unsourced posting to soc.gen.medieval by Homer B. James, dated 22 Dec. 1995 , reads in part: “Gunceline de Badlesmere [was] known first as a great rebel to King Henry III., for which he was excommunicated by the Archbishop of Canterbury; but, subsequently, returning to his allegiance, as Justice of Chester, in that office he continued until the 9th year of King Edward I (1280-1281). In the next year he was in the expedition made into Wales, and in the 25th year of the same monarch, in that into Gascony, having previously, by the writ of January 26 in that year, been summoned to the parliament at Salisbury for the following Sunday, the feast of St. Matthew, September 21, as Gunselm de Badlesmere. He died four years afterwards, seized of the manor of Badlesmere, which he held in capite of the crown, as of the barony of Crevequer, by the service of one knight’s fee. He … was succeeded by his son, then twenty-six years of age, Bartholomew.”

39. In the account of Badlesmere in CP (1:372) she was called “Joan, daughter of Ralph Fitz Bernard, of Kingsdown, Kent (aunt and, in her issue, heir to Thomas, [Lord] Fitz Bernard).” However, the statement is retracted in the account of Fitz Bernard (5:403, n. b), which concludes, “nor is anything known about the wife of Gunselin [sic], father of Bartholomew de Badlesmere.” Paul C. Reed, in TAG 77:145, especially n. 34, reaffirms the identification of Gunselm’s wife as Joan FitzBernard, daughter of Ralph FitzBernard and granddaughter of Thomas FitzBernard, but it is unclear to us whether this statement is based on a new evaluation of the evidence, since CP 5:398-404 is cited without comment on the retraction it supplies. According to Reed, Thomas FitzBernard was “dead by 4 December 1214,” which would place his death at least 86 years before that of his alleged granddaughter’s husband, a rather long stretch for only two generations. We believe the point requires further explanation.

50. The ancestry of her sister, Maud, is traced in Turton, p. 78.

51. As to her parentage, Turton (p. 167) calls her “____ de Condè [sic], daughter of Jacques de Condè [sic] and ____ de Roeux,” thus inserting an additional generation. Essentially the same account was given in CP 6:466, and AR7, line 152, both citing Anselme, Histoire généalogique et chronologique de la maison royale de France, 3rd ed., 9 vols. (Paris, 1726-1733), 6:167-69. However, this identification was retracted in The Complete Peerage 14 (Addenda & Corrigenda, 1998), p. 381 (where the reference to the original passage on p. 466 was incorrectly given as p. 462), citing Joseph Noel, Grands Seigneurs d’Autrefois: Les Haut-Voués et Dames Avoueresses de Fosse (1957), p. 31, with credit for the reference assigned to Andrew Moriarty. Her parentage was also given correctly (but without documentation) many years ago in Sellers, De Carpentier Allied Ancestry, above-cited, 156-57.

59. As pointed out in CP 10:377, n. a, s.v. Pembroke, “As Anselm [who survived his elder brother Walter, the previous holder, by not more than 30 days] died before receiving seisin, he was ignored [in an inquest of 1366], and the lands were regarded as last held by Walter.” It is perhaps for this reason that Maud was spoken of in an earlier volume (9:590, s.v. Norfolk) as heir to Walter. But she was in fact heir to Anselme. Roberts, Royal Descents of 500 Immigrants, 423, 425, 427, shows her descent from Henry I, King of France.

60. Cokyane & Watson, Table 9, and Paget, 1:65, each give a five-generation ancestor table for her.

64. Sanders, English Baronies, 125. Turton, 97, has the date of his death wrong.

65. Sanders, English Baronies, 125 n. 6; AR7 line 72. Turton, p. 97, is wrong here.

66. CP 12(2):368, 2:45 (Beachamp of Kidderminster), 2:44 (Beachamp of Bletsoe); Sanders, Feudal Baronies, p. 76 (where however his parentage is incorrectly stated); Carl Boyer, 3rd, Medieval English Ancestors of Certain Americans, 15, pointing out the error in Sanders respecting his parentage (but in one place misquoting Sanders, who makes this son of Walter II de Beauchamp, not William Ii de Beauchamp.

67. Sanders, English Baronies, pp. 50-1, 94, esp. p. 50 n. 8, citing R.W. Eyton, “Pedigree of the Baronial House of Mauduit,” Herald and Genealogist, 7:385 ff. Roberts, Royal Descents of 500 Immigrants, 429, shows her descent from Henry I, King of France.

70. Edwin Jaquett Sellers, De Carpentier Allied Ancestry, above-cited, pp. 156-7. As previously noted, Turton (p. 167) and others erroneously made him and his wife the grandparents, rather than parents, of no. 51.

72. CP 10:15 states, “He is said to have m. Juliane.”

73. Turton, p. 137. Turton seemingly did not recognize that Gerald de Prendergast (d. 1251) and his supposed grandson-in-law Maurice FitzGerald (d. 1257) were in fact close contemporaries. Furthermore, although Turton was concerned with a different wife of Maurice FitzMaurice (whom he erroneously calls “Maurice FitzGerald”) and may perhaps be forgiven the oversight, he failed to notice the consanguinity implied by such a connection. As is evident from the chart below, it would have Maurice FitzMaurice marrying his grandmother’s sister:


Gerald de Prendergast = Maud [Fitz]Walter

85. Cokayne & Watson, Table 2, and Paget, 1:61, each give a five-generation ancestor-table for her. Christian Settipani, in a posting to soc.gen.medieval dated 4 Sept. 1998 , commented in detail on her ancestry for six generations, citing, among other sources, a 7-generation (?) ancestor table by E. St.-Phalle in Heraldique and Genealogy 139 (1996), pp. 172 ff., which we have not seen.

86. G.W. Watson, “The Families of Lacy, Geneva, Joinville, and La Marche,” cited above, at pp. 5-6, justifies her double name, and presents conclusive proof as to her parentage. It is also discussed in Cokayne & Watson, table 11, and in Eugene L. Cox, The Eagles of Savoy, p. 9. Turton, table 60, and Paget 1:67, are wrong.

87. Consequently, his paternal ancestry is treated in Cokayne & Watson’s series of ancestor tables, no. 4.

95. CP 5:160, especially n. f, which discusses his parentage as follows: “It is erroneously states in L’Art de Vé les Dates and elsewhere (Anselm is correct) that Raoul was a son of Hugue IX [de Lusignan]. The mistake is obvious enough, for it represents him as a youngers brother of Hugue X, who was only a child in 1200, and not married until twenty years afterwards. It arose because Raoul is frequently styled, between 1208 and 1219, brother of the Count of La Marche: and Hugue IX was supposed … to have died in 1208, whereas he lived till 1219.”

96. Sanders, p. 147.

97. She is sometimes called Mahaut de Clermont, but we have found no source for the statement, and it was not accepted by Cokayne & Watson.

98. Some authors make her the king’s daughter by his second wife, Constance of Castile, but as this woman died in 1160, this would make Alix some 18 years older than her husband, which is very improbable.

99. DNB 11:387-88; W.E. Wightman, The Lacy family in England and Normandy, 1066-1194 (Oxford, 1966), 86, 97, 178, and first folding chart at end; CP 7:676.

100. In Edward De Lacy-Bellingari, The Roll of the house of Lacy (Baltimore, 1928), 16, she is called “sister to the treasurer of York Minster,” i.e. Bevus (or Bogo) de Clare. This statement is rejected in a posting by Paul C. Reed to soc.gen.medieval dated 8 Feb. 1999 , citing the biography of the treasurer in Alumni Oxoniensis. Carl Boyer, 3rd, Medieval English Ancestors of Certain Americans, 121, states that she is discussed in Vernon M. Norr, Some Early English Pedigrees (Arlington, Virginia, 1968), 47, which we have not seen.

101. CP 7:676, s.v. Lincoln. The marriage date of 1221 assigned to him in CP 3:169, n. a, s.v. Chester, is thus clearly impossible.

102. For his ancestry see J. Horace Round, “The Origin of the Fitzgeralds,” The Ancestor no. 1 (April 1902): 119-26; no. 2 (July 1902): 91-98, especially p. 98.

103. CP 10:13, s.v. Offaly, citing Orpen in Journal of the Royal Society of Antiquaries, 1 (1914): 99-113. Turton, 1:137, misidentifies her as Catherine de Valoines.

104. Both CP and Sanders, English Baronies, 70-71, are in error concerning the early ancestry of FitzAlans of Oswestry. See Chris Phillips, Some corrections and additions to the Complete Peerage, Volume 5: FitzAlan of Oswestry, available online at

106. CP 12(2):247.

107. The question is considered in William Addams Reitwiesner, “The Children of Joan, Princess of North Wales,” The Genealogist 1 (1980): 80-95, who reports (p. 93, n. 40) that “the beliefs of modern Welsh historians” favor Tangwystl. Older works, including CP (new edition) and Sanders, English Baronies, 98 n. 7, made Gwladus a daughter of Joan.

116. Some earlier authorities maintain that her husband’s son Tomaso (our no. 166) was by another wife, Gertrude de Flandre; L’Art de Vérifier les Dates, quarto edition (hereafter AVD) 5:152 is of this view, and makes Gertrude his fourth wife, which is seemingly impossible. As pointed out by Cokayne & Watson, Table 11, this would have made Tomaso’s son Tomaso II a second cousin of his first wife, which is very improbable; and they favored Béatrix as Tomaso’s mother. The difficulty seems to be resolved by ES, 2nd ed. (1965-), 2:110, where Umberto’s marriages are plausibly reordered, making Béatrix the only possible mother of Tomaso.

118. Eugene L. Cox, The Eagles of Savoy, p. 9; but Cokayne & Watson, table 11, make her a daughter of Guy de Valperga and Beatrice Visconti.

119. For his ancestry see Lindsay L. Brook, The Genealogist 2 (1981):3-51, at p. 7. Although the name of the first wife of Isaakios, and mother of his daughter Eirene (our no. 175), is often given as his second cousin (and second cousin once removed), Eirene Komnene (e.g. in ES 2:142 and in Paget 2:477), this identification was rejected by Brook for lack of evidence.

129. DNB 11:387, under the account of his son, Roger de Lacy. He should not (as has sometimes been done) be called “John de Lacy,” for the Lacy name was only assumed by his son Roger, who took it upon inheriting the Lacy lands.

130. CP 10, Appendices, pp. 115, 118. Turton, 95, mis-identified her as Alice de Mandeville, apparently basing this on the incorrect statement in the DNB, 11:387, that she was “Alice de Vere, sister of William de Mandeville, Earl of Essex.” Their actual relationship would appear to have been cousins, as follows:

Aubrey de Vere II, Earl of Essex


| |

Alice de Vere Rohese de Vere

= (2) Roger FitzRichard = Geoffrey de Mandeville,

lord of Warkworth Earl of Essex

| |

Alice de Vere William de Mandeville

= John FitzRobert Earl of Essex

Constable of Chester


Clay, Early Yorkshire Families, 56 n. 9, questions Round’s account of the maternity of one of the other sons of Geoffrey de Mandeville, but it is not clear whether his doubt extends to the maternity of this William. Alice de Vere (the younger) presumably used her mother’s surname because her mother was of a more prominent family than her father, a practice noted by Round in his essay on “Walter Tirel and his wife,” printed in his Feudal England pp. 468-79, at pp. 475-76.6
