Agnes Kevelioc De Ferrers

  • Birth: 1174 Chester Cheshire, England
  • Death: Nov. 2, 1247 Stowe-by-Chartley Staffordshire, England
  • Burial: Chartley Castle Stowe-by-Chartley Staffordshire, England

Agnes de Kevelioc, alias Agnes of Chester, was Lady Chartley in her own right, and conveyed that honor into the Ferrers family as he dowery. She and the Earl were married for over 50 years, died within days of one another, and were given a joint requiem on their burial together.

The Ferrers family kept Chartley for generations even though William held it in tail for the duration of his wife's life-- it has been said the portentous nature of their double burial there had some influence on the King's conveyance of Chartley to William's son the 5th Earl.
