About Osmond de Stuteville

from the book A Genealogical and Heraldic Dictionary of the Peerage and Baronetage of the British Empire, By John Bernard Burke, published 1852 Starting with p.908.

His son, Robert de Estoteville II, inherited. He married Eneburga, daughter and heir of Hugh FitzBaldric. Through this marriage, de Estoteville gains Schypwyc (Skipwick, which became Skipwith). Their children were:

  • Robert de Estoteville III, inherited Cottingham.
  • Osmund de Estoteville
  • Patrick de Estoteville, inherited Skipwith and assumed the name Lord Patrick Skipwith, as was the custom. He married Beatrix, daughter and heir of Sir Pagan de Langtun.

"The History and Antiquity of the town of Beverley..." page 459 shows a pedigree of the Stuteville family (they owned Cottingham at one point), identifying the relationship of this Osmund with other members of the Stuteville family. This Osmund, married to Isabella (daughter of William of Gressinghall) is son of the Robert who married Ensberga (who is himself a son of Robert de Stuteville whom William the Conqueror called Front-de-Boeuf). Osmund had three brothers (sisters are apparently not listed): eldest brother Robert (who married firstly Hellewise, and secondly Sybilla de Valonlis), and younger brothers Patrick de Skipwith and John. Osmond had a grandson with the same name, eldest of his second son William. (Osmond also had an older son named Roger of Burton-Agnes.)

The relationships listed by the Celtic Casimir online family tree may be off in relationship to this pedigree, and should probably be reviewed. But the biographical data appears accurate.

Fecit Deo.de via de Kausebi quam frater suus Osmundus dedit illis." J.C.Atkinson (ed.), 'Rievaulx Cartulary', p.290].

Between 1189 and 1192 Osmund quitclaimed his rights in Cowesby chapel after a settlement with Hugh bishop of Durham.

Wikipedia information on the attack on Jaffa that likely killed Osmund de Stuteville:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third_Crusade

Following his victory at the Battle of Arsuf (September 7, 1191), King Richard Coeur de Lion I of England took Jaffa and established his new headquarters there. He offered to begin negotiations with Saladin, who sent his brother, Al-Adil, to meet with Richard. Negotiations (which had included an attempt to marry Richard's sister Joan to Al-Adil) failed, and Richard marched to Ascalon.

Richard called on Conrad to join him on campaign, but he refused, citing Richard's alliance with King Guy. He too had been negotiating with Saladin, as a defence against any attempt by Richard to wrest Tyre from him for Guy.

However, in April, Richard was forced to accept Conrad as king of Jerusalem after an election by the nobles of the kingdom. Guy had received no votes at all, but Richard sold him Cyprus as compensation. Before he could be crowned, Conrad was stabbed to death by two Hashshashin in the streets of Tyre.

Eight days later, Richard's nephew Henry II of Champagne married Queen Isabella, who was pregnant with Conrad's child. It was strongly suspected that the king's killers had acted on instructions from Richard.

In July 1192, Saladin's army suddenly attacked and captured Jaffa with thousands of men, but Saladin had lost control of his army because of their anger for the massacre at Acre. It was believed that Saladin even told the Crusaders to shield themselves in the Citadel until he had regained control of his army.

Later, Richard had arrived in ships, but did not land because he did not know the situation, until a priest swam to the ship and told him what happened. The city was then re-captured by Richard and a much smaller force of 55 men on July 31.

A final battle was fought on August 5 in which Richard once again emerged triumphant.

On September 2, 1192, Richard and Saladin finalized a treaty by which Jerusalem would remain under Muslim control, but which also allowed unarmed Christian pilgrims to visit the city. Richard departed the Holy Land on October 9.
