About 1st wife of Robert de Gournay

soc.gen.medieval John Watson, Apr 12, 2011, 5:54:38 PM “ Hawise, widow of Henry de Longchamp of Wilton”

Whether she was divorced, or whether Henry died, I don't know, but Hawise later turns up again in 1269 as the widow of Robert de Gurney [Gurnay / Gournay] of Beverstone, Gloucestershire. On 26 May 1269 William Ernaldi was granted the marriage of Hawise de Longo Campo, late the wife of Robert Curtenay [Gurnay], tenant in chief, or of any fine she may make with the king for the marriage or the forfeiture due if she marry without the licence of him or the said William [8]. On 15 June 1269 the king granted her reasonable dower from Robert's lands [9]. Hawise is given as the mother of Robert's heir Anselm in all pedigrees of the Gurney family, but this is not possible. Anselm was of full age in 1269, when the king granted him the lands of Robert his father [10], so was born before 1249. As can be seen above, Hawise was married to Morgan ap Hywel at this time.
