Baron FitzWarin

  • Baron FitzWarin (also spelt Fitz Waryn, FitzWarine,and Fitz-Warine) is an abeyant title in the Peerage of England. It was created by Writ of summons for Fulk V FitzWarine in 1295. His family had been great lords for nearly a century, at least since his grandfather Fulk III had recovered Whittington Castle in 1205. This castle was their main residence and its lordship was a marcher lordship near Oswestry. This has been in Shropshire since 1536 and also in the Domesday Book, but for much of the intervening period was regarded as part of Wales.
  • All the heads of the family had the name Fulk, and the barony with the castle and lordship of Whittington descended from father to son until the death of Fulk XI in 1420. It then passed down the female line into the Bourchier family. John Bourchier, 11th Baron FitzWarin was created Earl of Bath in 1536. However, the barony became abeyant upon the death of the 4th Earl in 1636 and remains so.
    • Predecessors of peers
  • Fulk I FitzWarin (d.1170/1), a supporter of King Henry II (1154-1189), of Whittington in Shropshire and Alveston in Gloucestershire, son of the "shadowy or mythical" Warin of Metz, Lorraine.[2]
  • Fulk II FitzWarin (fl.1194), married Hawise de Dinan, daughter and co-heiress of Joceas de Dinan.[3] His younger son was William FitzWarin who on being granted the Devon manor of Brightley for his seat, adopted the surname "de Brightley".[4]
  • Fulk III FitzWarin (died 1258), obtained Whittington Castle in 1204, and was the subject of the famous legend[5] Romance of Fouke le Fitz Waryn
  • Sir Fulk IV FitzWarin (d.1264), drowned in the River Ouse while fleeing from the Battle of Lewes in 1264.[6]
    • Barons FitzWarin (1295)
  • Fulk V FitzWarin, 1st Baron FitzWarin (1251–1315), summoned to Parliament as Lord Fitzwarine 23 June 1295.
  • Fulk VI FitzWarin, 2nd Baron FitzWarin (c.1285–1337)
  • Fulk VII FitzWarin, 3rd Baron FitzWarin (c.1315–1349)
  • Fulk VIII FitzWarin, 4th Baron FitzWarin (1340–1374)
  • Fulk IX FitzWarin, 5th Baron FitzWarin (1362–1391)
  • Fulk X FitzWarin, 6th Baron FitzWarin (1389–1407)
  • Fulk XI FitzWarin, 7th Baron FitzWarin (1406–1420)
  • Elizabeth FitzWarin, 8th Baroness FitzWarin (c.1404–c.1427), sister, married Richard II Hankford (c.1397-1431), son and heir of Richard I Hankford (dvp 1419), MP, son of Sir William Hankford (c.1350 – 1423),[7] of Annery, Devon, Chief Justice of the King's Bench. Upon her death the barony must have been in abeyance between her daughters Thomasine Hankford (1423–1453) and Elizabeth Hankford (c.1424-1433) until the death of the latter in 1433.
  • Thomasine Hankeford, 9th Baroness FitzWarin (1423–1453), married Sir William Bourchier (1407-1470), 2nd son of William Bourchier, 1st Count of Eu (1386-1420). He was summoned to Parliament as Lord FitzWarin in her right and is thus deemed:[8]
