Peter de Mortimer -------------------- Baron Wigmore -------------------- RALPH DE MORTIMER, brother and heir. In 1216 he had been one of a deputation sent by King John to William de Briwere, after his forced adhesion to the Barons during their occupation of London, to arrange for his return to the King's service; and in September 1217 he had witnessed at Lambeth the articles drawn up between Henry III and Louis of France. On 23 November 1227 he gave £100 as relief for the lands of his brother Hugh, and the King took his homage; and on 8 July 1229, for his faithful service, he was pardoned all except £500 of the debts of his father and brother. In October 1230 he obtained a charter for a fair at Knighton and free warren at Stratfield, and in 1231 he was made custodian of Clun Castle and honour during pleasure. In June 1233, with the other Lords Marchers, Ralph exchanged hostages with the King de fideli servicio, quousque regnum sit ita securatum quod firma pax sit in regno Anglie. On 7 November following he attested a charter of Henry III at Hereford. He was present on 28 January 1235/6 at the confirmation of Magna Carta at Westminster, and in the same year he and the other Lords Marchers claimed the right to find and bear the silvered spears which supported the canopies held over the King and Queen in their Coronation procession; but the right of the Barons of the Cinque Ports to carry both canopies being allowed, the Marchers' claim was rejected as frivolous. In 1241 he was first of the pledges to the King for his sister-in-law Senana, wife of Griffith ap Llewelyn; but in August that year Meredith ap Howel and the other Welsh lords of Kerry made a permanent peace with Henry III, whether they should be at war with Ralph de Mortimer or not. In June 1242 he was summoned to come to the King's aid in Gascony as soon as possible. He married, in 1230, Gladys (Gladusa) Duy, or Dark-eyed, daughter of Llewelyn AP IORWORTH, by his 2nd wife, Joan (illegitimate daughter of KING JOHN), and widow of Reynold DE BRAOSE [died June 1228). He died 6 August 1246, and was buried at Wigmore. His widow died in 1251. [Complete Peerage IX:275-6] __________

Ralph de Mortimer, in the 12th Henry III [1228], paying £100 for his relief, had livery of all his lands lying in the cos. of Gloucester, Southampton, Berks, Salop, and Hereford. This nobleman being of a marital disposition, erected several strong castles by which he was enabled to extend his possessions against the Welsh so that Prince Llewellyn, seeing that he could not successfully cope with him, gave him his dau., Gladuse Duy, widow of Reginald de Braose, in marriage, and by this lady he had issue, Roger, his successor; Peter John, a grey friar at Shrewsbury; Hugh, of Chelmersh; and a dau. Isolda, m. 1st to Walter Balem, and 2ndly, to Hugh, Lord Audley. He d. in 1246, and was s. by his eldest son, Roger de Mortimer.
