====================================================

Stephen de Segrave (or Stephen Sedgrave or Stephen Segrave) (c.1171-9 November 1241) was a medieval Chief Justiciar of England.

In 1232, he succeeded Hubert de Burgh as chief justiciar of England.[1] He officiated at the trial of de Burgh, in November 1232, which has been called the "first state trial" in England[2].

As an active coadjutor of Peter des Roches, bishop of Winchester, Segrave incurred some share of the opprobrium which was lavished on the Poitevin royal favourites of Henry III of England. In 1234, he was deprived of his office as Justiciar.[1] Soon, however, he was again occupying an influential position at Henry's court, and he retained this until his death.

He became a knight and was made constable of the Tower of London in 1203. He obtained lands and held various positions under Henry III. He was given the manor where Caludon Castle was built, at Wyken near Coventry in 1232[3] or earlier,[4] by Ranulph de Blondeville, 4th Earl of Chester. Ranulph also granted him Bretby in 1209.[5]

In 1236, he became castellan of Beeston Castle and Chester Castle, jointly with Hugh de Spencer and Henry de Aldithley.[6]

Family

He was the son of a certain Gilbert de Segrave of Segrave in Leicestershire. He married Rohese le Despenser, daughter of Thomas le Despenser; and then Ida Hastings, daughter of William de Hastings and Margery Bigod of Norfolk.[7][8]

Gilbert, 3rd Baron Segrave, obtained, from Simon de Montfort, Lord of Leicester, a grant of the whole town of Kegworth in 1230/31. He was given a grant, from the crown, of the manor of Newcastle-under-Lyme in 1232/33.

Gilbert married Amabil de Chaucombe, daughter of Robert de Chaucumbe and Juliana (?), before 1238.

Gilbert was made justice of all the royal forests, south of the Trent, and governor of Kenilworth Castle in 1241/42. He was constituted one of the justices of "Oyer and Terminer," to hear and determine all such causes as had usually been tried before the justice itinerant, at the Tower of London, in 1250/51.

Gilbert was deputed, with Roger Bigod, Earl Marshal, on an embassy to France, and he was treacherously siezed, along with many other nobility, by the French, in 1253/54. He died circa 1254 from the severe treatment he had been given by the French in their captivity.
