About Joan de Orreby, Baroness de Percy


From "Manor of Fulk Stapleford" in The History of the County Palatine and City of Chester: Comp. from ..., Volume 2 By George Ormerod

The issue of sir John Orreby, [knight bannereth] (son of Fulk), who was summoned to Parliament by Edw. II. [was John [SIC: Philip, son of Philip]. whose daughter Joan, 33 Edw. III. had license of Edward, Prince of \Vales, at the request of the countess of Exeter, to sell timber, (with the advice and consent of her friends and relations, in aid of a covenant to be made by her touching her marriage), on the manor of Stapelford, then in the hands of the prince, by reason of the minority of the said Joan.

On Joan de Orreby's decease this line appears to have] terminated in Mary, [her daughter,] wife of John lord [Roos, or] Ross, of Hamelak, when this manor passed [as follows:

18 Ric. II. Nov. 6. Writ (y Lit/cry, enrolled, to sir William Bagot, knt. of the manor of Stapleford Fulke, held of the earl by knight's service, Val. p. a.£16 ; also the manors of Walgherton, Hatherton, and Church Coppenhall, on an Inq. finding that Hugh de Wybunbury, chaplain, by Fine (19 Edw. II.) passed the said manors to John de Orreby and Joan his wife, and their issue, with successive remainders to John their son and heir, Joan his daughter, and Mary who was the wife of John de R005, and daughter and heiress of the said Joan; that the said Mary died without issue, when the manors aforesaid descended to the said \rVilliam (Bagot), as her kinsman and heir, viz. son of Joan daughter of Matild daughter of Joan daughter of John son of Philip brother of John father of Joan mother of the said Mary; and that the said William was 40 years of age or more. ...


From the Inquisitions Post Mortem for Mary wife of John Roos
John de Orreby, knight, being seised in his demesne as of fee of the under-mentioned manor, gave it by his charter to Thomas de Synythwayt, parson of the church of Hawkeswell, William Synythwayt, knight, and Richard, parson of the church of Candelsby, who by their charter gave it to the said John de Orreby and Margaret his wife, to them and the heirs of their bodies, with remainder to Adam de Clifton, knight, and Robert Barnak, and Edward III by his letters patent pardoned and confirmed the gift. John de Orreby and Margaret had issue Joan, who was married to Henry lord de Percy and had issue Mary, who was the wife of John de Roos of Hamelake, knight. John de Orreby died and Joan died in her mothers lifetime and Mary entered as daughter and heir of Joan and died without heir of her body. She died at York on 25 August last [1394].
