About Peter de Mauley, II, Sheriff of Northamptonshire

PIERS DE MAULEY the Second, son and heir. On 27 September 1237 his marriage contracted with Joan, eldest daughter of Piers de Brus, received the King's approval. On 24 May 1242, he being under age, his father's lands were granted to Gerard la Grue for a yearly payment of 500 marks. On 13 October 1243 his marriage, and in case of his death that of Robert his brother, was granted to the Archbishop of York. On 15 October 1247 he did homage to the King for all his father's lands. In 1251-52 it was found to be to the King's advantage to commit to him the wood and moor in Wheeldale, near Egton, in fee-farm for 10 marks. On 1 October 1253 he had letters of protection while on the King's service in Gascony. On 9 February 1253/4 he and his heirs were granted free warren in his demesne lands in various places, including Doncaster, and a weekly market and a yearly fair at his manor of Lythe.
