Eleanor Maltravers or Mautravers, 2nd Baroness Maltravers suo jure (c.1345 – 12 January 1405) was an English noblewoman and heiress. She was the younger daughter and coheir of Sir John Maltravers (d. 22 January 1349) and his wife Gwenthlian. She had a brother, Henry Maltravers, who died an infant before 8 February 1350, and a sister, Joan Maltravers, who married firstly Sir John de Keynes, and secondly Sir Robert Rous, but died without issue. When Eleanor's grandfather, John Maltravers, 1st Baron Maltravers, died on 13 February 1364, the Maltravers barony fell into abeyance, according to modern doctrine, between his granddaughters and coheirs, Joan and Eleanor. At the death of her sister Joan in or after 1376, Eleanor succeeded as de jure Baroness Maltravers. Marriages and issue: On 17 February 1359 Eleanor married John FitzAlan, 1st Baron Arundel (d. 13 December 1379), by whom she had five sons and two daughters. John FitzAlan, 2nd Baron Arundel (30 November 1364 – 14 August 1390), who married Elizabeth le Despenser, daughter of Edward le Despencer, 4th Baron le Despencer (d.1336 – 11 November 1375), by whom he had three sons: John FitzAlan, 13th Earl of Arundel. Sir Edward FitzAlan. Sir Thomas FitzAlan of West Betchworth (in Dorking), Surrey, who married Joan Moyne. Sir William FitzAlan, Knight of the Garter, second son, who married a wife named Agnes, but left no issue. Henry FitzAlan. Edward FitzAlan. Sir Richard FitzAlan (d. 3 June 1419), 5th son, who married Alice (d. 30 August 1436), the widow of Roger Burley, esquire, by whom he had a daughter, Joan Arundel, who married Sir Thomas Willoughby of Parham. Joan FitzAlan, who married firstly Sir William de Bryan, and secondly, Sir William Echingham. She is buried in the chancel at Etchingham. Margaret FitzAlan, who married William de Ros, 6th Baron de Ros. Sir John Fitzalan died at sea on 15 December 1379. Eleanor married secondly, on 9 August 1380, as his second wife, Reynold Cobham, 2nd Baron Cobham of Sterborough (died 3 or 6 July 1403), by whom she had three sons and two daughters: John Cobham. Reynold Cobham, 3rd Baron Cobham, who married Eleanor Culpeper and was the father of Eleanor Cobham, wife of Humphrey of Lancaster, 1st Duke of Gloucester. Thomas Cobham. Elizabeth Cobham. Margaret Cobham, who married Sir Richard Curteys. In 1384 Eleanor and her second husband were divorced on the ground that they were within the second and three degrees of consanguinity.
