THOMAS Le Despencer.

"…Thomas dispensatore…" witnessed the charter dated to the reign of King Henry II under which "Bertram de Verdum" granted land at Long Whatton, Leicestershire to "Wauchelino filio Baldewini et Aeliz uxori sue", which was held by "mater uxoris predicti Walchelini" during the reign of King Henry I[62].

Origins of the Despenser: Geoffrey, father of Thomas

Post on the soc.genealogy.medieval forum by John P. Ravilious on 1/13/06 https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/soc.genealogy.medieval/ruz92uBAhhk

Thursday, 12 January, 2006 Hello All,

Following on Clive West's kind contribution of last week, I was able to review a copy of Nichol's History of Leicester. In particular, I was interested to see what was stated there, given Clive's notation of several charters of Thomas le Despenser, including one which stated (in translation), "I Thomas Dispensator, son of Geoffrey (Galfridus) Dispensator, have given and confirmed ten bovates in land at Burton with the consent of Asketill de Berges, my lord of the same land."

I am very pleased to confirm Clive's statements en toto. There are several charters dealing with the same 10 bovates in Burton, including one in particular, titled " Thomas Dispensator. (14.b.) " by Nichols, which states in part,

" ... Thomas Dispensator, filius Gaufridi Dispensatoris,

     salutem........  x bovatas terre, cum omnibus pertinentiis
     suis, in campo de Burtona, concessu Asketilli de Berges
     domini mei de eadem terra,... " [1]

The full text of one of the charters of Thomas, involving the confirmation of another gift of his father Geoffrey, is given below [2], which likewise makes it quite clear that Thomas' father was Geoffrey le Despenser, and not his brother Hugh as most recently conjectured. Based upon prior research (most of which has been posted to prior SGM threads), this is Geoffrey le Despenser, brother of Ivo de Alspath (sometime constable of Coventry castle for Earl Ranulf of Chester) [3].

Perhaps not as important as proving this relationship, the existence of these charters is most interesting: it is amazing to Clive and myself (and likely others) that these details had not been more widely published. The edition of the Calendar of the Charter Rolls provided an abstract of Garendon charters in 1912, including one for the grant by Thomas le Despenser of the same 10 bovates in Burton, taken from the same source as that used by Nichols (BL Lansdowne MS 415), but no notice of parentage was made [4]. More recently, Geoffrey Barraclough and David Postles have used the same source used by Nichols in the Garendon appendix to his work [5]. The edition of Monasticon Anglicanum now available online gives perhaps a sense of how this came about:

' As Mr. Nichols has been equally copious in his abstract

      and analysis of this Register also, no further account
      of it will be needed here. " [6]

In addition to the matter of Thomas le Despenser's paternity, one of the charters cited also involves Thomas' wife, and a son Geoffrey. As Clive had advised, this charter renders her name as 'Recuare', and evidences that Thomas had a son Geoffrey who predeceased him - evidently a younger son later being named Geoffrey in his stead:

Tomas Dispensator. (4.b.)

Sciatis me dedisse, concessione & bona voluntate uxoris mee Recuare & heredum meorum & hac carta mea confirmasse, Deo et ecclesie Sanct Marie de Gerondonia, et monachis....etc etc.. x bovatas terra cum omnibus pertinentiis suis in campo de Burton concesssu Asketilli de Berges domini mei de eadem terra, liberas et quitas ab omni terreno servicio et consuetudine mihi & heredibus meis pertinente, salvo forensi servicio; & excepto quod annuatim dabunt mihi & heredibus meis 2 solidus ad festum Sancte Crucis post Pascham. Preterea dedi eisdem monachis ....etc.....pro salute anime mee & patris & matris mee, & precipue pro anima filii mei Gaufridi 1111 solidos quos pro predicta terra ......etc.... Ut inde habeat annuatim conventus pitanciam in die anniversario eiusdem fillii mei, hoc est crastino Nativitatis Sanct Marie. ........etc etc......

Hiis testibus; Roberto comite Legrecestrie, Petronilla comitissa. ' [7]

I will post a corrected pedigree (with documentation) of the Despenser descent to the list in short order. The descent from NN (possibly William) de Queniborough now appears to be as follows:

[The following is from a compilation of John Ravilious' tree/chart here and one from 31 Dec 2003 posted on https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/soc.genealogy.medieval/k2x2qcVs5kE as well as one posted on 16 Jan 2006 at https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!searchin/soc.genealogy.medieval/Ancestry$20of$20Sir$20Hugh$20le$20Despenser/soc.genealogy.medieval/V1OQdMYA2K4/ytMUtdLp5d0J]

1. NN de Queniborough, of Queniborough and Burton on the Wolds, co. Leics. [possibly 'Willelmus' who held lands in Stache and Queniborough, Leics. of Geoffrey de la Guerche at Domesday Book, in 1086]

  • 'Willelmus' held lands in Stache and Queniborough, Leics. of Geoffrey de la Guerche at Domesday Book, in 1086 [DD 652][1],[2]
  • 'He also held 5 carucates of land in Burton on the Wolds. This may have been the land of Durand Malet who held 5 carucates of land in Burton on the Wolds in chief from the king. To this land coincidentally belonged one and a half carucates of land in Prestwold.'[3]

Father of (1.1) NN, a daughter = Hugh de Berges: possibly originally came from Berges, Sussex; he may have been the son (or other successor) of Hugh, who held 2 carucates of land less 1 bovate in Bortone [Burton on the Wolds] of earl Hugh at Domesday Book, 1086. His wife:sister of Thurstan de Queniborough and his brother Radulf; her father may have been the William de Queniborough who held lands of Geoffrey de la Guerche at Domesday Book, 1086. Evidently had lands in Burton on the Wolds and Prestwold, co. Leics. as her maritagium.

  • ' Hugo de Berges', made a gift of 3 carucates to Garendon abbey in Burton on the Wolds, later confirmed by son Ansketil together with his (Ansketil's) uncles Thurstan de Queniborough and Radulf[2]. This gift occurred in 1133 (year of the foundation of Garendon) or later.

(1.1.1) Ansketil de Berges of Burton on the Wolds, co. Leics. married Rohese. Gift by 'Hugo de Berges et Asketillus filius eius' of 3 carucates in Burton to Garendon abbey, confirmed by his uncles Thurstan and

Radulf de Queniborough 'cum predicto nepote nostro Asketillo' [5]. Of Burton on the Wolds, co. Leics. [also Nichols, Hist. Leicestershire vol. III, courtesy Clive West[8. Spouse: Rohese. Children:

' Thoma dispensatore ', witness to grant by H(ugh), Earl of Chester (d. 1181) to Bertram, his chamberlain, of Mabel, daughter of William Flamenc, and her inheritance of Meles, ca. 1162-1181 :

Thomas obviously held his lands (or at least these 10 bovates) in Burton of Ansketil de Berges (elsewhere Ansketil de Prestwold), evidently his first cousin.

' Honors and Knights' Fees ii:58 et seq. gives Ellis Despenser enfeoffed of Loughbourough by Hugh de Beauchamp after 1158. Ellis succeeded by Thomas, living 1166.

This evidently is another family, based in Oxfordshire. The charter of Thomas 'filius Hugonis' of a virgate of land to Eynsham abbey is dated [1213-28] by Salter (49:149)[15]

Monks Kirby (PRO, Meriden (Alspath) [ DR10/524 ][11],[13],[14].

'Thoma dispensator'; or 'dispensarius'; [also 'Toma';], witness
to numerous charters of the Earls of Chester, ca. 1178-1207
(charters #192, 194, 203, 261-2, 265, 272, 288-9, 302-3, 313,

acquired Arnesby and Loughborough, co. Leics. on the death of his

brother Elias:

' The successor of Ellis was Thomas Despenser, who was amerced 1 mark in 1166 for a default in Leicestershire. This Thomas was amerced

40s. in 1176 for forest trespass in Leicestershire.... he was
presumably the donor to [Garendon] abbey of 10 bovates in Burton
on the Wolds, Leics., of the fee of Asketil de Berges,...' [ Farrer,
HKF II:58, citing Pipe Roll 12 Hen II, p. 70; 22 Hen II, p. 185;
and Cal. Chart. Rolls iv. 475[6
~ the grant of land in Burton on the Wolds, co. Leics. to
Garendon abbey reads:
  'the grant of the same Asketil of the gift of Thomas Dispensator
  of ten bovates of land in his fee, in the same town' - CCR
  IV:475[8]
Thomas obviously held his lands (or at least these 10 bovates) in
 Burton of Ansketil de Berges (elsewhere Ansketil de Prestwold);
 these may have been either inheritance from his mother, or
 devised by his father, but were evidently therefore held of
 his elder brother.

' Honors and Knights' Fees ii:58 etseq. gives Ellis Despenser

enfeoffed of Loughbourough by Hugh de Beauchamp after 1158.
Ellis succeeded by Thomas, living 1166. This Thomas donated 10
bovates in Burton on the Wolds, Leics. of the fee of ASKETIL 
de Berges.' (the cite by Farrer references CCR IV:475)[15]

daughter in free marriage a rent of 2s in Burton', to them and
