About John Wake, 1st Baron Wake of Liddell


John Wake, 1st Lord of Liddell (b 1268, d before 10.04.1300)

 	TCP is not clear about the identity of his wife other than to name her as Joan. It indicates that she may have been a daughter of either John FitzBernard of Kingsdown or William de Fenes, a Count of Spain. BE1883 does not name his wife at all. The following marriage is suggested by 'Tudor' and 'Mathematical' and is being followed on a provisional basis only and may not be secure.

John Wake, 1st Baron Wake of Liddell

John Wake, 1st Lord (Baron), so created by writ of summons to Parliament 24 June 1295; campaigned in Gascony between 1288 and 1297 and against the Scots 1297-1300, Jt Captain of March of Scotland in Cumberland and Westmorland 1297, fought at Battle of Falkirk 1298; married by 24 Sep 1291 Joan (died just prior to 26 Oct 1309), allegedly daughter of Sir John FitzBernard, of Kingsdown, Kent or William de Fenes, a Spanish Count, and possibly a relative of Edward I, and died just prior to 10 April 1300.

Thomas Wake, 2nd Baron Wake of Liddell (1297 – 31 May 1349), English baron, belonged to a Lincolnshire family which had lands also in Cumberland, being the son of John Wake (died 1300), who was summoned to parliament as a baron in 1295, and the grandson of Baldwin Wake (died 1282), both warriors of repute.

Among Thomas Wake's guardians were Piers Gaveston and Henry, Earl of Lancaster, whose daughter Blanche (d. 1380) he married before 1317. This lady was the niece of Thomas, Earl of Lancaster, and her husband was thus attached to the Lancastrian party, but he did not follow Earl Thomas in the proceedings which led to his death in 1322. Hating the favourites of Edward II Wake joined Queen Isabella in 1326 and was a member of the small council which advised the young king, Edward III; soon, however, he broke away from the queen and her ally, Roger Mortimer, and in conjunction with his father-in-law, now earl of Lancaster, he joined the malcontent barons.

He was possibly implicated in the plot which cost his brother-in-law, Edmund of Woodstock, 1st Earl of Kent, his life in 1330, and he fled to France, returning to England after the overthrow of Isabella and Mortimer. Edward III made him governor of the Channel Islands and he assisted Edward Bruce to invade Scotland, being afterwards sent on an errand to France. In 1341 he incurred the displeasure of the king and was imprisoned, but he had been restored and had been employed in Brittany and elsewhere when he died childless.

His estates passed to his sister Margaret (d. 1349), widow of Edmund, Earl of Kent, and her son John, 3rd Earl of Kent (d. 1352), and later to the Roland family. Wake founded a monastery Haltemprice Priory for the Austin canons at Newton near Cottingham, East Riding of Yorkshire where he is buried.
