JOHN FitzGeoffrey of Shere, Surrey (-1258). Justiciar of Ireland. He was not entitled to succeed his half-brother as Earl of Essex in 1227, the Earldom having devolved from his father's first wife. m as her second husband, ISABEL, widow of GILBERT de Lacy of Ewyas Lacy, daughter of [HUGH Bigod Earl of Norfolk & his wife Maud Marshal of Pembroke].

The sources which report the parentage of the wife of Gilbert de Lacy are conflicting. A manuscript which narrates the descents of the founders of Lanthony Abbey records that “Gilbertus de Lacy” married “Isabellæ Mareschal”[519], presumably confusing her with Isabel daughter of William Marshal Earl of Pembroke who married firstly Gilbert de Clare Earl of Gloucester and Hereford and secondly Richard Earl of Cornwall. The Chronicle of Tintern Abbey, Monmouthshire names "Isabella soror Johannis" as daughter of ”Rogerus sive Radulphus Bigod, secundus filius Hugonis le Bigod com. Norfolke et Suffolke…” and his wife “Bertam de Fornivale”, adding that she married firstly "Gilberto de Lacy" and secondly "Johanni Fitz-Geffrey"[520]. This must also be incorrect, as any children of Ralph Bigod could not have been born before the late 1220s at the earliest, which is inconsistent with the timing of Isabel´s first marriage. If Isabel was a member of the Bigod family, she must have been the daughter of Hugh and Maud Marshal of Pembroke. This is the solution adopted by the Complete Peerage[521], although the primary source on which this is based has not yet been identified.

John FitzGeoffrey & his wife had six children:

i) RICHARD FitzJohn of Shere (-1297). The Chronicle of Tintern Abbey, Monmouthshire names "Ricardus le Fitz John, Johannes et Willielmus" as the three sons of "Johanni Fitz-Geffrey" and his wife "Isabella Bygod…"[522]. Lord FitzJohn 1290. m as her first husband, EMMA, daughter of --- (-1332). She married secondly Robert de Mohaut of Mold.

ii) JOHN FitzJohn of Shere (-1275). The Chronicle of Tintern Abbey, Monmouthshire names "Ricardus le Fitz John, Johannes et Willielmus" as the three sons of "Johanni Fitz-Geffrey" and his wife "Isabella Bygod…"[523]. m MARGERY Basset, daughter of PHILIP Basset of Wycombe & his wife --- (-1271).

iii) WILLIAM FitzJohn . The Chronicle of Tintern Abbey, Monmouthshire names "Ricardus le Fitz John, Johannes et Willielmus" as the three sons of "Johanni Fitz-Geffrey" and his wife "Isabella Bygod…"[524].

iv) MAUD (-16/18 Apr 1301, bur 7 May 1301 Worcester, Friars Minor). The Chronicle of Tintern Abbey, Monmouthshire names "Matilda uxor Guidonis comitis Warwici" as the oldest daughter of "Johanni Fitz-Geffrey" and his wife "Isabella Bygod…"[525]. m firstly GERARD de Furnivalle Lord of Hallamshire (-1261). m secondly WILLIAM de Beauchamp Earl of Warwick, son of WILLIAM de Beauchamp of Elmley, Worcestershire & his wife Isabel Mauduit ([1237/41]-Elmley 5 or 9 Jun 1298, bur 22 Jun 1298 Worcester, Friars Minor).

v) AVELINE (-[20 May 1274], bur Dunmow Priory).

The Magna Carta

The Middle Ages encompass one of the most exciting periods in English History. One of the most important historical events of the Medieval era is the Magna Carta. What were the key dates of this famous historical event? What were the names of the Medieval people who were involved in this historical occasion? Interesting facts and information about the Magna Carta of 1215 are detailed below.

What is the Magna Carta?

What is the Magna Carta? The Magna Carta is a document that King John of England (1166 - 1216) was forced into signing. King John was forced into signing the charter because it greatly reduced the power he held as the King of England and allowed for the formation of a powerful parliament. The Magna Carta became the basis for English citizen's rights.

What was the purpose of the Magna Carta?

What was the purpose of the Magna Carta? The purpose of the Magna Carta was to curb the King and make him govern by the old English laws that had prevailed before the Normans came. The Magna Carta was a collection of 37 English laws - some copied, some recollected, some old and some new. The Magna Carta demonstrated that the power of the king could be limited by a written grant.

Who wrote the Magna Carta?

The content of the Magna Carta was drafted by Archbishop Stephen Langton and the most powerful Barons of England. King John signed the document which was originally called the 'Articles of the Barons' on June 10, 1215. The barons renewed the Oath of Fealty to King John on June 15, 1215. The royal chancery produced a formal royal grant, based on the agreements reached at Runnymede, which became known as Magna Carta. Copies of the Magna Carta were distributed to bishops, sheriffs and other important people throughout England.

Why the Magna Carta was famous and important to the history of England? The charter is considered to be the beginning of constitutional government in England. The Magna Carta demonstrated that the power of the king could be limited by a written grant.

Why the Magna Carta was important to the History of America

A document signed by an English King in 1215! Why the Magna Carta was important to the history of America? The Magna Carta is considered the founding document of English liberties and hence American liberties. The influence of Magna Carta can be seen in the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Article 21 from the Declaration of Rights in the Maryland Constitution of 1776 reads:

"That no freeman ought to be taken, or imprisoned, or disseized of his freehold, liberties, or privileges, or outlawed, or exiled, or in any manner destroyed, or deprived of his life, liberty, or property, but by the judgment of his peers, or by the law of the land."

King John and the Magna Carta

What events led up to King John being forced into the signing of the Magna Carta?

In 1205 King John quarrelled with the Pope Innocent III about who should be archbishop of Canterbury. The Pope wanted a man named Stephen Langton to be archbishop, but King John swore he should never come to England.

In 1209 The pope retaliated, excommunicated King John and banned all church services in all parish churches

King John gave in, and Pope Innocent made the king and people pay him money whenever he demanded it.

Taxes levied by King John were extortionate. His reprisals against defaulters were ruthless and his idea justice was considered avaricious

In 1212 King John imposes taxes on the Barons in his attempts to regain the lost lands of Aquitaine, Poitou and Anjou

King John quarrels with the Barons over his methods of ruling England

The Barons and Stephen Langton decided to curb the King and make him govern by the old English laws that had prevailed before the Normans came. The demands of the Barons were documented in the 'Articles of the Barons' in January 1215

The Barons took up arms against King John

The Barons captured London in May 1215

In June the Barons, in full armor, took King John by surprise at Windsor and he agreed to a meeting at Runnymede

King John signed and sealed the document on June 10, 1215

The barons renewed the Oath of Fealty to King John on June 15, 1215

The royal chancery produced a formal royal grant, based on the agreements reached at Runnymede, which became known as Magna Carta

Copies of the Magna Carta were distributed to bishops, sheriffs and other important people throughout England

King John had no intention of abiding by the Magna Carta. His duplicity leads to the Barons War between 1215 - 1217. The rebel barons support the son of the king of France, Prince Louis in preference to King John. In 1216 Prince Louis invades England and marches to London where he receives support and is was proclaimed and accepted as King of England (although not actually crowned). King John dies in October. The Barons turn on Prince Louis and supports the nine year old son of King John who then became King Henry III of England.

Sheriff of Yorkshire

Justiciar of Ireland -------------------- Notes for John Fitzgeoffrey: The term justiciar originally referred to any officer of the king's court (curia regis), or, indeed, anyone who possessed a law court of their own or was qualified to act as a judge the shire-courts. The chief justiciar (latterly known simply as the justiciar) was a rough equivalent to that of the modern Prime Minister

As early Norman kings were often overseas, and the justiciar was invariably a great noble or churchman, the office of justiciar became very powerful and important; indeed, important and powerful enough to be a threat to the king. The last great justiciar, Hubert de Burgh Hubert de Burgh (~1165 - May 12, 1243) was Earl of Kent, Justiciar of England and Ireland, and one of the most influential men in England during the reigns of John and Henry III.

-------------------- John FitzGeoffrey, Justiciar of Ireland was born on 1205 in Shere, Guildford, Surrey, England to Geoffrey FitzPiers, 1st Earl of Essex and Aveline De Clare FitzPiers. John married Isabel Bigod and had 6 children: Maud Fitzroy, John FitzJohn of Shere, Richard FitzJohn, Lord of Shere, Isabel Fitzroy, Avelina FitzJohn, and Joan FitzGeoffrey. He passed away on November 23, 1258.
