MARGERY ([1175/85]-after 1255). A manuscript which narrates the descents of the founders of Lanthony Abbey records that “Walterus”, son of “Gilbertus de Lacy”, married “Margeriam filiam Matildis de S. Walerico, quondam uxoris Willielmi de Brewes”[1202]. This wording suggests that Margery may have been her mother´s daughter by an earlier marriage, not the daughter of William de Briouse, although no other primary source has yet been identified which suggests that Maud married twice. Nevertheless, the Annals of Worcester record that King John exiled “Walterum de Lacy” in 1211 because he would not repudiate “uxorem suam, filiam W. de Breaus”[1203]. Her birth date range is estimated based firstly on her oldest son having had three children before he died in 1230, and her husband´s birth estimated to [1172]. If the range is correct, it is likely that Margery was one of her parents´s older children. A charter of King Edward II dated 26 Jan 1326 confirmed donations to Lanthony Abbey, among which a donation by “Walterus de Lacy filius Hugonis de Lacy” for the soul of “dominæ Margeriæ uxoris meæ”[1204]. King John granted land "in foresta nostra de Acornebur" to "Margaret de Lascy" to build a religious house, for the souls of "W. de Breusa patris sui, Matillid matris sue et W. fratris sui", dated 10 Oct 1216[1205]. "Walterus de Lacy" confirmed the donation by "Margeria uxor mea" to Acornbury priory, Herefordshire by charter dated to [1220/25], witnessed by “domino Willielmo de Lascy, domino Simone de Clifford, priore de Careswell, Egidio de Clifford…”[1206]. An undated charter of Henry III King of England confirmed a donation by ”Walterus de Lacy” to the Hospital of Ludlow, Shropshire, for the souls of “Margeriæ uxoris meæ…Gilberti de Lacy filii mei”[1207]. A charter dated 10 Oct 1241 ordered her dower to be assigned to "Margery who was the wife of Walter de Lacy"[1208].

m WALTER de Lacy Lord of Meath, son of HUGH de Lacy Lord of Meath & his first wife Rose de Monmouth ([1172]-before 24 Feb 1241). See http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/IRELAND.htm#WalterLacydied1241

Walter & his wife had [seven or more] children:

1. GILBERT de Lacy of Ewyas Lacy, Herefordshire (-[12 Aug/25 Dec] 1230, bur Lanton, Wales). The Chronicle of Tintern Abbey, Monmouthshire records that "Gilbertus de Lacy" had a son "Hugonem" who had "filium Walterum", who in turn had "filium Gilbertum de Lacy"[842]. A manuscript which narrates the descents of the founders of Lanthony Abbey names “Gilbertus de Lacy” as son of “Walterus de Lacy” and his wife[843]. An undated charter of Henry III King of England confirmed a donation by ”Walterus de Lacy” to the Hospital of Ludlow, Shropshire, for the souls of “Margeriæ uxoris meæ…Gilberti de Lacy filii mei”[844]. The Annals of Tewkesbury record the death in 1230 of “Gilebertus de Lacy filius et hæres Walteri de Lacy” and his burial “apud Lantone in Wallia”[845]. The Annals of Worcester record the death in 1230 of “Gilbertus de Lacy”[846]. m as her first husband, ISABEL, daughter of [HUGH Bigod Earl of Norfolk & his wife Maud Marshal of Pembroke] ([after 1207]-). 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”[847], 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"[848]. 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[849], although the primary source on which this is based has not yet been identified. She married secondly Sir John FitzGeoffrey. Gilbert & his wife had three children....

2. EGIDIA de Lacy (-[22 Feb 1247/5 Nov 1248]). A writ dated [29] Dec "[28?] Hen III" and 7 Mar "27 Hen III" after the death of "Richard de Burgo" assigns dower to "Egidia late the wife of the said Richard" but names no heir[862]. A charter dated 22 Feb 1247 records the homage of "Richard son and heir of Richard de Burgh for all his father´s lands…in Ireland…saving the dower of Egidia, who was Richard´s wife"[863]. Her second marriage is confirmed by a charter dated 8 Oct 1249 which records that "the Dominican friars of London have shown to the king that Egidia, who was the wife of Richard de Burgh senior, received 180 marks in which Richard was bound to Hubert de Burgh late Earl of Kent and which the Earl had left by his will to the friars, and that Richard of Rochester who subsequently married Egidia wasted her chattels" and the order to restore property to the friars[864]. A charter dated 5 Nov 1248 mandates "Peter de Bermingham to cause dower to be assigned to Alice who was the wife of Richard de Burgh…son and heir of Richard de Burgh who died in the king´s service at Bordeaux" and to have dower "of all the lands whereof Egidia, who was the wife of the latter, was endowed"[865]. m firstly RICHARD de Burgh Lord of Connaught, son of WILLIAM de Burgh Lord of Connaught & his wife --- (-Gascony before 17 Feb 1243). m secondly RICHARD de Rochester, son of ---.

3. KATHERINE de Lacy (-after Sep 1267). "Katerina de Lacy filia Walteri de Lacy" donated land in Cofham, held by "domino Waltero de Clifford", to Acornbury priory, Herefordshire, for the souls of “fratris mei…et…dicti Walteri de Clifford et Margaretæ uxoris suæ et Margaretæ filiæ ipsius” by undated charter, witnessed by "domino Willielmo de Evereus, domino Rogero de Clifford, domino Ricardo Tirel, domino Roberto de Lacy, domino Willielmo de Rachesford…"[866].

4. sons . A manuscript which narrates the descents of the founders of Lanthony Abbey records that “Walterus de Lacy” and his wife had “plures filii et filiæ” who all died childless except for their son Gilbert[867].

5. [HUGH de Lacy (-in Ireland 1245). Matthew of Paris names "in Hybernia, Hugonis de Lasey" among those who died in 1245[868]. This Hugh de Lacy has not otherwise been identified. It is possible that he was one of the otherwise unrecorded sons of Walter de Lacey.]

6. daughters . A manuscript which narrates the descents of the founders of Lanthony Abbey records that “Walterus de Lacy” and his wife had “plures filii et filiæ” who all died childless except for their son Gilbert[869].

7. PERNEL de Lacy (-after 25 Oct 1288). m firstly (Sep [1232/34]) RAOUL [VI] de Tosny, son of RAOUL [IV] de Tosny & his wife Constance de Beaumont (-[29 Sep 1239]). m secondly (before 15 Oct 1256) GUILLAUME de Saint-Omer, son of NICOLAS [I] de Saint-Omer Lord of Boetia & his wife Margit of Hungary (-after 19 Oct 1265).
