About Eva de Tracy, III

research shows that Warin de Bassingbourne (died 1229) of Bassingbourne and Meldreth, co. Cambridge was married before 1228 to Eve de Tracy, daughter of Oliver de Tracy, baron of Barnstaple, Devon, by his wife, Eve, probably one of the daughters and co-heiresses of Matthew de Torrington. Eve's identity and parentage are proved by suits published in the Curia Regis Rolls. There is no question which Tracy family she belongs to as she had the manor of Morebath, Devonshire given to her in marriage by her brother, Henry de Tracy. In 1265, her son, Sir Warine de Bassingbourne presented James de St. Victore, clerk, as rector of Morebath, Devon, proving that Eve was his mother [Reference: Rev. F.C. Hingeston-Randolph, Registers of Walter Bronescombe and Peter Quivil, Bishops of Exeter, published 1889, pg. 156]. In addition to the son and heir, Warin, Warin Sr. and Eve de Tracy also had a daughter, Emma (died before 1276), who married Sir Lawrence de Seymour, ancestor of the Lords Saint Maur. Eve de Tracy, wife of Warin de Bassingbourne, was kin to the Chaworth family, by virtue of her mother, Eva's second marriage to Thomas de London. Eve de Tracy's half-sister was Hawise de London, who married Patrick de Chaworth. The parentage of Eva, and her relationship to the main Tracy family shown above, has not been traced. She could have been the widow of Oliver de Tracy. The king ordered the sheriff of Berkshire to "take into the king’s hands" the lands of "Fulk fitz Warin and Eva de Tracy and her sister on account of the son and heir of Thomas de London, who they detain from the king", dated to [1218/19][173]. This document suggests that Eva was closely related to Fulk FitzWarin [III], maybe his sister. Her first marriage is confirmed by an order to the sheriff of Devon to take "the daughter and heiress of Thomas of London [if] found in his bailiwick" and "if she has been abducted out of the bailiwick" to confiscate the lands of "Eva de Tracy her mother", dated to [1218/19][174]. "Eva de Tracy" paid a fine for "having a weekly market…at her manor of Bovey", dated 23 Oct 1219[175]. "William Crassus the first-born" paid a fine to marry "the daughter and heiress of Thomas de London", dated to [Dec] 1219[176]. "Eva de Tracy" made a fine for marrying "Hawise her daughter…without licence", dated [Jun] 1222[177]. The Pipe Roll 1223 records “Eva de Tracy...quia maritavit Hawisam filiam suam sine licencia R. que fuit de donatione sue” owing in “Nova Oblata” in Devon[178]. “Paganus de Cadurcis filius et hæres dominæ Hawisiæ de Londonia” donated land to Whiteland, Carmarthenshire, for the souls of “dominorum Thomæ de Londonia, Patricii de Cadurcis, Will. et Mauricii de Londonia, Warini de Bassingburne, dominæ Evæ de Tracy, Aleys et Gundre defunctorum”, by charter dated May 1270, witnessed by “dominis Patricio et Hernico militibus, fratribus nostris”[179].
