  • Percy, Richard de by Walter Eustace Rhodes
  • PERCY, RICHARD de, fifth Baron Percy (1170?–1244), born about 1170, was second son of Agnes, heiress of the original Percy family, and Josceline de Louvain, a younger son of Godfrey, duke of Brabant, who took his wife's name on his marriage. Richard is said to have taken a prominent part in the vehement opposition of the northern barons to the proposed sale of Northumberland to William the Lion in 1194. In 1196 Percy's elder brother Henry died, leaving a son William (1183?–1245) [q. v.], in his fifteenth year. Percy assumed administration of his nephew's lands and the baronial rights as fifth baron Percy, though the officially appointed guardian of the minor was William Brewer (d. 1226) [q. v.] In the same year his mother Agnes died, and he seized her lands, while he received the lands of his aunt the Countess of Warwick by bequest. After his nephew had attained his majority, Richard retained his property. A long litigation between the two was not concluded till 1234, when it was decided that Richard should hold the moiety of the Percy estates bequeathed to him by the Countess of Warwick, but at his death the whole property was to revert to William.
  • Percy was one of the northern barons who began the struggle which ended in the signing of Magna Charta by refusing to accompany the king to France in 1213 (Stubbs, i. 580; Rog. Wend. Rolls Ser. ii. 114). On 7 May 1215 he and some others made an attempt to treat with the king (Patent Rolls, 17 John, Record Comm. p. 180); he was one of the twenty-five executors of Magna Charta (Stubbs, i. 582), and he was excommunicated by Innocent III by name on 26 Dec. In 1216 he and other northern barons reduced Yorkshire to the obedience of Louis of France (Rog. Wend. ii. 169, 190). On 11 May 1217 Henry III granted Percy's lands to his nephew William. But they were restored by the king on Percy's submission on 2 Nov. (Close Rolls, Record Comm. i. 308, 339).
  • Percy helped to besiege Ralph de Gaugi in Newark Castle in 1218 (ib. i. 379 b), and he was one of three barons charged with the destruction of Skipton Castle in 1221 (ib. p. 474). In 1236 he appears among the witnesses of the confirmation of the charters (Annals of Tewkesbury, i. 104). The year after, when in the parliament the barons prepared to deliberate apart on the king's demands, Gilbert Basset suggested to the king that he should send some of his friends to attend the conference. The words caught the ear of Richard de Percy, and he indignantly cried, ‘What did you say, friend Gilbert? Are we foreigners then, and not friends of the king?’ (Matt. Paris, Hist. Maj. iii. 381–2). He died before 18 Aug. 1244 (Excerpta e Rotulis Finium, Record ed. i. 421). The manor of Ludford was left by him to the priory of Sixhills (Rot. Cart. Joh. p. 159 b).
  • On the death of his first wife, a sister of William Brewer, Percy married Agnes de Neville, by whom he had two sons, Henry and Alexander.

  • JOSCELIN de Louvain, [illegitimate] son of GODEFROI V "le Barbu" Duke of Lower Lotharingia, Comte de Louvain & [his mistress ---] (-1180). His parentage is confirmed by a manuscript genealogy of the Percy family which names “Matildem et Agnetem” as the daughters and heiresses of “Willielmus de Percy”, adding that Agnes married “Goselino Lovayn fratri Ducis Brabantiæ”[1180]. It appears likely that he was illegitimate. If it is correct that he married after 1154, he would have been rather old at that date to have been born from Duke Godefroi’s first marriage. On the other hand, Duke Godefroi’s second wife was probably too old to have given birth to children after her marriage with the duke. Joscelin accompanied his half-sister Adelisa to England when she married King Henry I in 1121. He was granted the honour of Petworth, Sussex by Queen Adelisa before 1151. The Red Book of the Exchequer refers to "Jocelin de Lovein xv m et dimidiam" in Yorkshire in [1167/68][1181]. The Red Book of the Exchequer refers to "Jocelinus frater Reginæ vi l" in Yorkshire in [1171/72][1182]. "…Jocelino fratre regine…" subscribed the charter dated to [Aug 1177/Jun 1181] under which Henry II King of England confirmed donations to the cathedral of Chartres[1183].
  • m (after 1154) AGNES de Percy, daughter & co-heiress of WILLIAM de Percy & his first wife Alice de Tonbridge (-[end 1202/13 Oct 1204]). A manuscript genealogy of the Percy family names “Matildem et Agnetem” as the daughters and heiresses of “Willielmus de Percy”, adding that Agnes married “Goselino Lovayn fratri Ducis Brabantiæ”[1184]. “Mathildis de Percy comitissa de Warwic, filia Willielmi de Perci” donated property to Sawley abbey, for the souls of “…patris mei Willielmi de Percy et Adalidis de Tunbrige matris meæ et Alani de Percy fratris mei et Agnetis sororis meæ”, by undated charter[1185]. "Agnes de Perci…in viduetatis meæ" confirmed the donation of "ecclesiam de Samara" made by "Willelmus de Perci pater meus" to Whitby, for the soul of "Jocelini mariti mei defuncti", by undated charter[1186]. “Agnes de Percy” confirmed donations of property by “Matildis comitissa de Warwicke soror mea” to Sawley abbey, for the souls of “Jocelini quondam sponsi mei et Willielmi de Percy patris mei et Adelidis de Tunebrigge matris meæ”, by undated charter, witnessed by “…W. de Percy…”[1187]. “Agnes de Percy” made a grant to the hospital of St Peter, York, after the death of “sponsi mei Jocelini de Luvain”, by charter dated to [1182/85][1188]. The Red Book of the Exchequer, listing scutage payments in [1190/91], records "Agnes de Percy" paying "xx s per Simonem de Kime, ii milites" in Lincolnshire[1189]. The connection between Agnes de Percy and Simon de Kyme has not yet been established. However, one explanation could be that he was her grandson, son of Agnes’s daughter, as discussed more fully below. The Red Book of the Exchequer, listing scutage payments in [1194/95], records "Agnes de Percy" among those granted delayed payment "per brevia" in Lincolnshire[1190]. A charter dated 4 Feb 1196 records a claim by “Sibillam de Vall et Agnetem de Percy” against the church of Beverley relating to “advocacione ecclesie de Lekenfeld”[1191].
  • Joscelin & his wife had [eight] children (who assumed the name “Percy” from their mother):
    • 1. .... etc.
    • 2. RICHARD de Percy (-1244). A manuscript genealogy of the Percy family names “Henricum et Ricardum fratrem eius” as the children of “Goselino Lovayn fratri Ducis Brabantiæ” & his wife[1198]. “Agnes de Percy” granted the service of five knights to “Ricardo de Percy filio meo”, excluding land granted to “Johanni de Daiville cum filia mea in matrimonio”, by undated charter[1199]. The Percy inheritance was split between him and his nephew William de Percy (son of his older brother William). Richard received those parts in the hands of his mother, but on his death this moiety reverted to William. The Testa de Nevill lists knights who held land in Durham, dated to [1208/10]: "Ricardus de Percy" held "ereditario de…baronia in Het et in Cessai feodum i militis"[1200]. The Red Book of the Exchequer records "Ricardus de Percy" holding 15 knights’ fees in Yorkshire in [1210/12][1201]. He was one of the 25 Barons who enforced the provisions of Magna Carta 1215. “Ricardus de Percy” confirmed the donation of Topcliffe church to York Cathedral by “Willielmi de Percy avi mei”, by charter dated 13 Apr 1226, witnessed by “…Henrico de Percy…”[1202]. m firstly ALICE, daughter of ---. m secondly as her first husband, AGNES de Neville, daughter of GEOFFREY de Neville of Raby in Northumberland & his wife Joan --- (-[16 Jun 1285/20 Jul 1293]). The primary source which confirms her parentage and two marriages has not yet been identified. She married secondly (before 12 Nov 1251) John [II] Deincourt. A charter dated 8 Nov 1251 records an agreement between “Johannem de Eyncurt et Agnetem uxorem eius” and “Henricum filium Willelmi de Percy” (authorised by “Henricus filius Ricardi de Percy”) relating to land “in Herghum”[1203]. Richard had one [illegitimate] son by [an unknown mistress]:
      • a) HENRY [de Percy] (-after 1267). Probably illegitimate, as he did not inherit his father’s moiety of the Percy barony. He may have been “…Henrico de Percy…” who witnessed the charter dated 13 Apr 1226 under which “Ricardus de Percy” confirmed the donation of Topcliffe church to York Cathedral by “Willielmi de Percy avi mei”[1204]. He was granted the manor of Settle by his father. A charter dated 8 Nov 1251 records an agreement between “Johannem de Eyncurt et Agnetem uxorem eius” and “Henricum filium Willelmi de Percy” (authorised by “Henricus filius Ricardi de Percy”) relating to land “in Herghum”[1205]. m ---. The name of Henry’s wife is not known. Henry & his wife had one child:
        • i) ALEXANDER . “Henricus de Percy filius Ricardi de Percy” granted land “in villa de Erghum” to “Alexandro filio meo” by undated charter[1206].
