  • The pedigree is as follows. It is based upon the papers referred to, and upon the county histories of Balier and Bridge and the new Victorian History. Compare the names of witnesses [vol. I.] with the Derby list above.
  • 1. Richard de Leuns m. Maud 2nd. Julianna, who was his widow 1206. He granted two virgates (80 A.) to his brother Matthew.
    • 2. Roger de Leuns m. Hawise. His dau. Margaret m. Richard, son of Walter de Sutton; their dau. m. Sir Geoffrey Luttrel; a picture of this couple adorns a psalter made for Geoffrey, and a copy thereof is published in Fairholt's Costumes, Bohn Library.
      • 3. Roger m. Joan, dau. of Adam de Napton. At her death 1278, her lands in Plympton went to their son and heir Richard, he being then 30 years.
        • 4. Richard b. 1248, was living 1288 m. Lady Emma, who was his widow 1311. He had a brother, John de Lions.(J)
          • 5. John de Lions m. Margery, dau. of Hugo de Oakley; she was his widow 1317; he d. 1312; she was living 1323. This is the John, son of Pagan, of the Philippe pedigree (vol. I. p. XI.); but the following extracts seem to be conclusive. [XIII.] Haec est finalis concordia facta in curia regis apud Ebor [aceum] inter Hugonem de Okele quaerentem et Joh[ann]em de Lyouns et Margeriam uxorem ejus deforc[iantes] per Adam de Harewedon de duabus p[ar]tibus manerii de Warkworth etc. et pro hac recognitione fine et concordia idem Hugo concessit pred[i]ctis Joh[ann]i et Margeriae et haeridit[ibus] remanere Ric[ard]o filio p[rae]d [i] c[t]i Joh' is et heredibus etc. remanere rectis heredibus d[i]c[t]i Johannis patris p[rae]d[i]c[t] or [urn] Joh'is et Ricardi. Ao. 31 Edw. I. [1302]. [XVII.] Unirersis S[an]c[t] ae matris eccl[es]iae filiis ad quor[um] noticiam praesentes pervener-int. Prior et fratres ordinis S[an]c[t]i Augustini de North'ton salutem. Nobili viro Johanni de Leonibus concessimus quod pro salubri statu suo et Aliciae consortis suae et eorum liberor[um]dum vixerint necnon pro animabus eor [um] et omnium progenitorum suorum etc. pro a[n]i[ma]bus Rogeri de Lions, Joh'is, Ricardi de Lions et Emmae nzoris suae, Joh'is de Lions et Margeriae uxoris suae etc. Sarae de Ocle, Will[ielm]i de Seintliz et Margeriae uxoris suae, Ao. 1330. [This John was son of John and Margaret. Note particularly the line of descent — Roger, John and Richard, John, and compare with Philippe, vol. I., p. 11.].
            • http://www.archive.org/stream/lyonmemorial00mill#page/17/mode/1up/search/oakley
            • 6. John de Lions(*) m. Alice, dau. of Wm. de St. Liz; m. 2nd. Elizabeth Hastings, living 1346; m. 3rd. Lora Latimer. He d. 1383. A second son was Richard de Lions. There were two daughters: Margerie, who m. Egidius St. John, and Agnes, both mentioned 1322. [XX,XXXII.].§ In 1311 he received his grandmother's dower of Severford. [XVII.] Sciant quod ego Joh'es de Liouns dedi Joh'i fllio meo capitale messuagium de Swerford parva etc. cum reversione terrarum et ten [en]tor[um] quae d[omin]a Emma mater mea de me tenet nomine dotis etc. et si contingat p[rae]d[i]c[t]um Joh'em sine herede de corpore suo obire remanerent Ricardo fratri suo. Testibus Thomas de Liouns de Dunstowe et aliis.
            • In 1319 he gave the manor of Beckbroke to his wife Alice; and in 1346 he gave to the prior and convent of Chacomb lands in Harpole and Plympton which he inherited from Adam de Napton; in 1337 he gave lands in Grimsbury to St. Leonard's Hospital in Banbury and later the hospital received lands in Banbury and Overthorp. His will was dated Saturday after the Feast of Conception of the B. V. M. 1383: To be buried in Chacomb Convent church; masses for the souls of Elizabeth Hastings and Lora Latimer his former wives: bequests to religious bodies. Proved Dec. 19, 1383. [Lincoln Wills].
            • His brother, Richard of Great Oakley, m. Margerie. He had a son Richard: [XXV.] A toutz ceaux I're verrounts ou orrounts. Richard de Lions de Warkworth et Richard son fitz etc. nouz estre tenuz k sire [Sir] John de Lyons, Seignr de Warkworth etc. Donne Ao, 35 Edw. III. (1361).
            • In 1330 Richard was summoned to show cause of his claim in Oakley. Replied that Hugo de Ocle died seized of the manor etc., leaving daughters, one Margery, his heirs; and that Margery conveyed her share to Richard de Lions and his heirs. In 1347 Richard accounts for one fee (800 A.) in Oakley, on levying aid for Knighting the King's son. In 1361 Richard died; his moiety descending to Isabella, Cecilia and Christina, his sisters and heirs [this was probably Richard the son (see also the Battle Abbey)]. In 1418 Cecilia Ragonel died possessed of one-third of the manor, descending to her daughter and heirs. She m. 1st. Hamelin de Mathan of Mulesey, Co. Surrey, who d. 1381, her dau. Elizabeth being three years old. Her dau. Margaret, wife of John Mitchell, died 1454 [Escheats 1381 and 1454— Clutterbuck's Hertford, Manning's Surrey and the Battle Abbey]. He has been confused with Richard, the vintner of Essex. Alice, sister and coheir of Richard, living 1403, m. Nicholas Lovett of Rushton in 1361. A Richard, with Claricia his wife and William his son, confirmed a grant of Waleran de Sulgrave [probably father of Claricia] to the convent— no date.
            • (*)Baker thinks there were two generations of Johns in No. 6.
            • (§)Document No. XX (omitted in Vol. I.). "Be it known that I, Margery, who was wife of Lord John de Lions, lord of Warkworth, have given to Margery and Agnes, my daughters, for the course of their lives, etc., and after their death, to Richard my son. etc." Anno 1322.
