About Amicia Mainwaring, of Chester

Earl Hugh de Kevelioc had one [illegitimate] child by [an unknown mistress]: [Therefore, his wife Bertrade was not her mother]

g) AMICIA . Her alleged legitimacy, the subject of a bitter dispute in the late 17th century, was championed by one of her supposed descendants Thomas Mainwaring of Baddeley, Cheshire[170]. It is difficult at this distance in time to judge the merits of the arguments, although it is interesting to note that her daughter was named Bertrade, the name of Earl Hugh’s wife who herself witnessed the charter which recorded Amicia’s marriage contract (see below), which may suggest that Bertrade de Montfort was her mother. On the other hand, Amicia is not named among the earl’s legitimate daughters who are referred to in several contemporary primary sources, as quoted above. “H. comes Cestrie” granted “servicium Giliberti filii Rogeri, scilicet servicium trium militum” to “Radulfo de Meinilwarin cum Amicia filia mea in libero maritagio” by charter dated to [1178/80], witnessed by “Bertraya comitisse Cestrie...Willelmo de Meinilwarin...Roberto de Meinilwarin...”[171].

m RALPH de Mesnilwarin [Mainwaring], Justice of Chester, son of ---. Ralph & his wife had two children:

i) ROGER Mainwaring . “Rogerus de Menilwarin” donated “grangie de Biveleg” to Deulacresse, for the soul of “domini Ranulphi quondam comitis Cestriæ et Lincolniæ avunculi mei” by undated charter, witnessed by “Willielmo de Menilwarin...”[172].

ii) BERTRADE Mainwaring (-after 1249). “Radulfus de Meidnilwar” granted “ dimid Pichemere...” to “Henrico de Alditelegh in liberum maritagium cum Bertrea filia mea” by undated charter, witnessed by “Ran com Cestr, Hug com Ultoniæ...”[173]. Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by inquisitions after a writ dated 22 Apr "4 Edw I", following the death of [her grandson] "Henry de Audidelegh..." which record the manor of “Smalewode...given to Henry de Audithele grandfather of the said Henry” by “Thomas [error for Ralph?] de Meynwaryn as free marriage”[174]. m HENRY de Audley, son of ADAM de Audley & his wife Emma --- ([1175]-1246 before Nov).
