Baron de la Warre -------------------- 6th Baron De La Warr and 3rd Baron West -------------------- Notes: Per Faris (1999) pp. 188-189: brother and heir of Thomas West, Lord West (died 1416). He was summoned to Parliament as Lord De La Warr from 15 Jul 1427 by writs directed Reginaldo La Warre, and as Lord West from 25 Feb 1431/2 by writs directed Reginaldo West. He had license to go to Rome, and thence to the Holy Land in 1446. He was married for the first time before 17 Feb 1428/29 to Maragret Thorley, daughter of Robert Thorley of Tybeste, Cornwall, by Anne, daughter of Michael De La Pole, 1st Earl of Suffolk. She died shortly before 24 Nov 1433. He was married for the second time by 19 Nov 1443 to Elizabeth, daughter and heiress of Robert Greyndour of Mitcheldean and Abenhall, County Glouscester, Aston Ingham, County Hereford, etc., by Joan, Daughter and heiress of Thomas Rugge of Charlecombe, Somerset. She was born 1421 (aged 23 and more in Jan 1443/44). He resided at Bourn Hall: The mansion's carved stone mantelpieces, rich wood paneling and crystal chandeliers give it an air of grandeur, a reflection of the days when it was the seat of the Earl De La Ware. The verdant meadows of Cambridgeshire lie serenely in the distance. Is now serving as a fertilization in England. Reginald West, Lord De La Warre, died aged fifty-five on 27 Aug 1450 seised of the Manor of Harby, and was buried at Broadwater, Sussex. His widow married after 10 Jun 1451, as his second wife, to John Tiptoft, Earl of Worcester ( beheaded on Tower hill on 18 Oct 1470). She died 1 Sep 1452.

-------------------- Reginald West, 6th Baron De La Warr and 3rd Baron West (7 September 1395 – 27 August 1450) was the second son of Thomas West, 1st Baron West and Joan La Warr, half-sister and heiress of Thomas la Warr, 5th Baron De La Warr. He inherited the title Baron West in 1416 when his brother Thomas West, 2nd Baron West died during the Agincourt campaign, and the title Baron De La Warr in 1427 upon the death of his uncle.He married twice: Firstly to Margaret Thorley (d.1433) of Tybeste, Cornwall c. 1424, which created a connection with William de la Pole, 1st Duke of Suffolk. She bore him the following progeny: Richard West, 7th Baron De La Warr (birth date variously given as 1430 or 1432) John West of Waith, (c. 1432), who married Eleanor Neville, thus establishing another important connection for the family. Margaret (c. 1424) who married Thomas de Echyngham Anne (c. 1426) who married Maurice Berkeley and was the mother of Sir William Berkeley. Secondly in 1433 or 1434, to Elizabeth Greyndour (d.1452), daughter and sole heiress of Robert Greyndour (d.1443) of Clearwell, Gloucestershire. (The earlier date would make her twelve or thirteen, which is not impossible, but Cokayne gives the latter date.) She bore him two daughters: Elizabeth, who in 1466 married William Berkeley, 1st Marquess of Berkeley, 2nd Baron Berkeley Mary married about 1472 to Sir Roger Lewknor. William, of uncertain birth-date, appears to have died in infancy. Career[edit]

Reginald was primarily important as the juncture between two important families, and for the politically important connections that he and his children formed, and from which later holders of the title would profit; although he did go to the wars, commanding garrisons in France from 1418 to 1421. He had to petition the Crown that he might sit in Parliament with the precedence of his la Warre ancestors, but Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester, then regent, granted it. The rules for inheritance of titles in the fifteenth century were not as definite as they are now; or he would not have had to petition. In 1446 he was granted license to go to Rome and thence to the Holy Land, but whether for pilgrimage or crusade is unclear; there is no evidence he went. He is buried at Broadwater, Sussex (now part of the town of Worthing). Ancestry
