About William la Zouche, 1st Lord of Harringworth

\n
\n
\n

William La Zouche, 1st Lord Zouche of Harringworth, Northants married, before 15 Feb. 1295/6, Maud, daughter of John (Lovel), 1st Lord Lovel (of Titchmarsh), being only child by his 1st wife, Isabel sister and (in her issue) heir of William de Bois (died shortly before 6 March 1312/3), of Thorpe-Arnold, co. Leicester, Weston-in-Arden afsd., & c., daughter of Arnold de Bois, of the same. She, who was said to be aged 30 and more in 1310 and by whom he had at least 10 children, died before 1346."

\n

My research indicates that Maud Lovel, wife of William la Zouche, was living in 1313, when William and Maud had a grant of free warren in their lands of Bramcote, Bulkington, Foleshill, Rycote, Weston, and Wolvershill, Warwickshire. Maud Lovel evidently died before c.1324, when her husband, Sir William la Zouche, petitioned the king requesting grace as Edmund, Earl of Leicester [afterwards Earl of Lancaster] formerly granted to Arnold de Bois two stags and two does in certain seasons annually from the chase of Leicester, and the heirs of the said Arnold enfeoffed him with these and he was seised of them until the chase was forfeited to the king with the other lands of Thomas, Earl of Lancaster. According to the abstract of this petition copied below, the petition was written when Maud, wife of William la Zouche, was deceased.

\n

Thus, it would appear that Maud Lovel died sometime between 1313 and c. 1324, long before 1346. -------------------- http://www.tudorplace.com.ar/ZOUCHE.htm#William La ZOUCHE (1º B.

\n
   From 1268 to 1369, the Beauchamps received several inheritances and gifts\n   of land which gave them a number of isolated properties in areas where\n   they had no other interests, and also into counties in which they had not\n   been represented before. The Fitz-Geoffrey inheritance saw them gain\n   Cherhill in Hertfordshire, Potterspury in Northamptonshire, and the\n   reversion of the Buckinghamshire manor of Quarrendon. The latter two were\n   quite near to Hanslope. Potterspury and Cherhill are two of the manors\n   for which we have receipts from September 1327 to February 1328.\n   Potterspury was considerably less important, for that time only yielding\n   a profit of £7 4s 8d, with its true value probably in the region of £39\n   p.a., although, with over £10 having to be shared amongst the other\n   Fitz-Geoffrey heirs, the true value to the Beauchamp estates was probably\n   in the region of £20 pa. The receipt for Cherhill for the five months in\n   question shows it to have yielded a staggering £47 16s 5d; three pounds\n   more than Hanslope. However this appears to be an anomalous total, for\n   over £20 of the revenue was from the sale of 64 acres of land to WILLIAM\n   DE LA ZOUCHE; again the 1298 estimate of annual income of £48 13s 7d\n   would appear a more accurate figure, although, after the death of Earl\n   Guy, the crown estimated its worth at less than £19 p.a.. Quarrendon was\n   the original caput of the Fitz-Geoffrey family, just as Hanslope had been\n   for the Mauduits and Elmley Castle for the Beauchamps, with a park\n   constructed for the lord of the manor in 1276. In 1332, on the death of\n   Robert Montalt, the manor passed into the hands of Thomas Beauchamp.
\n
   Like the lands of the Fitz-Geoffrey inheritance, the Tony inheritance was\n   concentrated in the south of England, but it brought in greater profits\n   which were much more scattered. Flamstead, in Hertfordshire, was not too\n   remote from Hanslope or Potterspury; it appears to have been the home of\n   Alice, Earl Guy's widow, with her third husband WILLIAM DE LA ZOUCHE, and\n   was one of the manors which Earl Thomas jointly entailed upon himself and\n   his wife in 1344. Abberley, with its park, was easily absorbed into the\n   earl's Worcestershire estates. Newton Tony and Stratford Tony, although\n   in Wiltshire, were considerably removed from Cherhill, being to the south\n   of Salisbury Plain. These two villages were too insignificant and too\n   remote to be held in demesne, and when the manors had passed to Thomas\n   Beauchamp in 1337, he, in turn, passed them to his brother, John. On\n   John's death in 1360, the manors were given by Earl Thomas to one of his\n   younger sons. The proximity of Walthamstow, Essex, to London appears to\n   have made the manor worthy of investment; in 1361, Earl Thomas acquired\n   the reversion of Walthamstow Bedyk to the south-west of the parish. The\n   pattern for members of the higher nobility at this time was to have a\n   residence in London, and a country retreat within easy commuting distance\n   from the capital, and Walthamstow appears to have provided this. As an\n   agricultural centre it does not appear to have been as valuable.\n   ...\n   The general pattern for Beauchamp accumulation of manors seems to be that\n   they concentrated on purchasing whole manors in Worcestershire or\n   Warwickshire; sometimes outside these counties, small-scale land and\n   property were bought, but only on very rare occasions would this be a\n   whole manor. We have already established the financial importance of the\n   property held outside the midlands, but what is interesting is that its\n   accumulation came as a result of inheritance, and not an active policy of\n   purchase; this is surely an area where the Beauchamps owed their fortune\n   to good luck and good marriages. They merely had to wait for these\n   inheritances to fall into their laps, although in some cases the wait\n   could be a considerable period of time. In the case of the Fitz-Geoffrey\n   fortune, Earl William and Countess Maud had to lobby for their full\n   share; they ‘often came to the chancery and sued instantly their\n   pourparties of the inheritance’ due to complaints of the size of their\n   portion by their co-inheritors. The matter was not settled until 1299,\n   after it had been prolonged for two years, and during which time Earl\n   William had died. Quarrendon, whose reversion had been assigned to the\n   earl as part of the Fitz-Geoffrey inheritance, did not come into\n   Beauchamp hands until 1332. The Tony inheritance proved even more\n   problematic: the inheritance was only at the disposal of the Beauchamps\n   from between 1310, when Alice de Tony had married Earl Guy, to 1315 when\n   Guy died and the estates remained with Alice, who subsequently married\n   WILLIAM DE LA ZOUCHE of Ashby. Although Alice died in 1324, the estates\n   remained with Zouche until his death in March 1337, and so most of the\n   Tony inheritance did not finally pass into the Beauchamp estates until\n   twenty-seven years after Guy and Alice's marriage. These lands alone have\n   been calculated as being worth in excess of £500 per annum. As mentioned\n   above, it was not until the 1340s when the Norfolk and west country\n   manors became available, that the full Tony estates had become\n   assimilated into the Warwick estates.\n   SOURCE: Exerpt from "The Beauchamp Earls of Warwick, 1298-1369; Chapter\n   2: Land and Wealth", A thesis by Sebastian Barfield, BA (Hons), MPhil,\n   URL http://users.powernet.co.uk/barfield/chap2.htm
