-------------------- SOURCE OF CHILDREN:


Patrick I de Chaworth [Parents] was born in 1060 in Chaworth, Nottinghamshire, England. He died in England. He married Matilda de Hesdin about 1079 in England. Patrick was born in Toddington, Bedfordshire, England.

[Source: ]

About 1126 Patricius and his wife, Matilda, gave to to the Abbey of La Couture at Le Mans for the salvation of their souls and the souls of their ancestors and their son, of Arnulf de Hodine the late Lord of Dodington, of William the Conqueror and of his son, Henry I., and of William Adeling (who was drowned in 1120 in the Blanche Nef on his way from Normandy), the church of Dodington2 in England. This gift was confirmed by Henry I. and Henry II., kings of England and dukes of Normandy. Patricius also gave to the monastery of St. Peter of Gloucester, four mills on his estate at Kemps-ford, in that county.

During the visit of Pope Urban II. to France in 1095, for the purpose of preaching the first crusade, Patricius and his son, Hugh, "were among the noblesse of Maine who raised the cry of 'Dieu le veut.'"

Patricius was succeeded by his son Payen, or Paganus Chaworth, by his wife, Avice de Londres. He possessed both the Chateau de Chaources, in Maine, and the strong Castle of Kidwelly,3 in Carmarthenshire, his mother's inheritance. He was a great benefactor to the monks of Blancheland and of Bottefant, near Southampton, and in 1158 accompanied Geoffrey de Mayenne on a fresh crusade. More than one hundred of the elite of the nobles of Maine, Anjou, and Brittany took part in the expedition, of whom only about thirty-five returned, but Pagan Chaworth was fortunate enough to be among them, as his name occurs in 1167, in a record of the abbey of La Couture."4...............

This account, abridged from the Duc des Cars' book, agrees fairly with Glover, but a mistake has been made in the marriage of Patrick, though it seems certain that the abbey of La Couture at Le Mans was benefited by Patricius and his wife, Matilda, in 1100-1122. How long the English Chaworths continued to hold property in France, as well as in England, is difficult to ascertain. Probably not after "Pagan surnamed of Mondoubleau," a town between Paris and Le Mans. He was the uncle of Matilda Chaworth, Countess of Lancaster, and according to the Duc des Cars, carried on the family from about 1224, till an heiress, the daughter of the fifth Patrick of Chaources, or Sourches, married Jean le Vayer before the year 1320.

The pedigree drawn up by Glover for Sir George Chaworth in 1581 (to which we shall frequently refer), gives a charter from the register of the Priory of Dunstable, showing that this Patricius and his wife, Matilda, gave land at Chalton to that priory "for their souls and the soul of Ernulph their predecessor" (called also Ernulph de Hodine, or Hesling).
