[Terry Jackson Curator 19/04/2015]

From Medlands:

WILLIAM [II] de Beauchamp, son of WILLIAM [I] de Beauchamp & his wife Bertha de Briouse (-1197). The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. The Red Book of the Exchequer, listing scutage payments in [1190/91], records "Willelmus de Bello Campo" paying "lxx s de militibus, quos tenet de Rege in diversis comitatius, vii milites" in Worcestershire[927]. The Red Book of the Exchequer, listing scutage payments in [1194/95], records "Willelmo de Bello Campo" paying "vii l de toto sentagio quod promisit domino Regi" in Worcestershire[928]. The Annals of Worcester record the death in 1197 of “Willelmus de Bello Campo”[929].

m AMICE, daughter of ---. The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified. The introduction to the Beauchamp Cartulary states that it is clear from the cartulary of Westwood priory that "Amice (or Avice) ‘lady of Salwarpe’ was the mother of William [II]’s heir and other children"[930]. The Rotuli Curiæ Regis record a claim in 1198 by "Amic de Bello Campo" against "Will de Brause" relating to land in Oxfordshire[931]. [Mistress (1): --- de Salwarpe, sister of Odo de Salwarpe, daughter of ---. The identity of the mother of Juliana, daughter of William [II] de Beauchamp, is suggested by the three charters quoted below. The implication of the documents is that Juliana was illegitimate, and that the grant of property made by William [II] de Beauchamp to Odo de Salwarpe under the first document amounted to compensation for getting his sister pregnant, on the understanding that the property in question would later be transmitted to his [illegitimate] daughter, the transfer being effected by the second document and confirmed by the third. However, see the reference under Amice, wife of William [II] de Beauchamp, to her being “lady of Salwarpe” which, if correct, suggests that this possible mistress may have been the same person as his wife.]

William [II] & his wife had two children:

1. WILLIAM [III] de Beauchamp ([1194/96]-[1210/11]). The introduction to the Beauchamp Cartulary states that William [III] de Beauchamp, son of William [II], was in the custody of William [III] de Briouse in 1200[932]. The introduction to the Beauchamp Cartulary states that the custody of "Wilekin de Beauchamp" was transferred in 1209 to "the free tenants of the honour, headed by Robert de Beauchamp, a brother of William [II]…for four years"[933]. The period of four years remaining while William [III] was still a minor indicates that he was born in the last years of his father’s life.

2. WALTER [III] de Beauchamp ([1195/97]-14 Apr 1236). The Red Book of the Exchequer records "Walterus de Bello Campo" holding 207 knights’ fees "in Uptone, Stanes, Graftone, Ayntone, Chedeleswale, Kokesaye, Benetlega, Pancevot, Bouresdale, Costone, Dunclere" in Worcestershire in [1210/12][934]. The Annals of Worcester record the death “die Sancti Guthlaci” in 1235 of “Walterus de Bello Campo”[935]. The Annals of Tewkesbury record the death “XVIII Kal Mai” in 1236 of “W de Bellocampo”[936].

m firstly (after 1212) JOAN Mortimer, daughter of ROGER [III] de Mortimer & his [second] wife Isabel de Ferrers (-1225). The Annals of Worcester record that “Rogerus de Mortuo Mari…filiam suam” married “Waltero de Bello Campo”[937]. The Annals of Worcester record the death in 1225 of “Johanna de Mortuo Mari uxor Willelmi de Bello Campo”[938].

m secondly ANGHARAD, daughter of --- (-[1280/83]). The introduction to the Beauchamp Cartulary records that "Angaret" was the mother of Walter [II]’s son Hugh, and suggests that she may also have been the mother of his sons Thomas, Walter and John[939]. Her parentage is not known, but her name indicates Welsh origin. A lay subsidy roll for Worcester dated [1280] records "Domina Augereta de Bello Campo" in Bengeworth[940]. Walter [III] & his first wife had one child:

a) WILLIAM [IV] de Beauchamp


  Walter de Beauchamp is the son of Walter de Beauchamp and Bertha de Braose.1 He married Joane de Mortimer.1

Child of Walter de Beauchamp and Joane de Mortimer William de Beauchamp+1 d. 1269
