About William le Latimer, 1st Baron Latimer of Corby

1st Baron Latimer of Corby.

William le Latimer accompanied Prince Edward (later King Edward I) to the Holy Land in 1270. He went on pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in 1275. He often went abroad in the service of the king and served in the king’s wars against the Welsh and Scots. He was the keeper of Berwick Castle in 1300 and took part in the siege of Carlaverock in June of that year. See “The Siege of Carlaverock,” translated by N. H. Nicolas (London: J. B. Nichols and Son, 1828); the verse therein on William le Latimer has been rendered in the Complete Peerage (vol. 9:463) as

Valour and Sir William Latimer

Fast and firm friends were they;

His banner red bore a simple charge---

A cross of gold patée.

William le Latimer is considered to have become Baron Latimer of Corby by virtue of his attendance at parliament in 1290 and his summonses by writ to the parliaments of 1300 and 1302. He held manors throughout the kingdom and was buried at Helpringham, Lincoln.
