Juhel de Mayenne II

From Medlands


2nd husband of MATILDA de Bohun

([1140/43][435]-after 1194, or after 1199).  Her parentage is established by a 1263 inquisition which confirms that Humphrey de Bohun, grandfather of Humphrey de Bohun Earl of Hereford at that time, gave Bradenham to his sister Matilda[436].  Her first and [third] marriages are confirmed by a lawsuit recorded in 1194 in which "Matill uxor Walteri fil Robti" sued "Cecilia uxore Rad fil Wigain" over Swereford manor, Oxfordshire, given to her by "Henri de Oilli vir eius…in dote"[437].  A writ dated 7 Mar "47 Hen III", after the death of "John de Plessetis alias de Plascetis earl of Warwick", notes that "Humphrey de Bohun gave the manor [of Bradenham, Buckinghamshire] in free marriage to Henry de Oylly with Maud his sister"[438].  The 1164/65 Pipe Roll records "uxor Henri de Oilli" accounting for land in Oxfordshire, presumably indicating that her husband had recently died[439].  Her possible second marriage is confirmed by the Feet of Fines which records the judgment dated 9 Feb 1196 in a claim by "Henricus de Bohon…pro Adam de Greiuill" against "Matill de Bohon" concerning land "villa de Waleton…villam de Blakemer" and "in villa de Niweton" given to Matilda "in maritagium quondam Iuhellus de Mee---e"[440].  It is supposed that Matilda was the plaintiff´s aunt, although this is not specifically stated in the document.  No other Matilda de Bohun has been identified, and the 1194 document demonstrates that Henry´s aunt was litigious.  It is supposed that the name "de Mee---e" indicates Mayenne, but this is not beyond all doubt.  ["Matill de Buun" paid a fine for "saisina de matris sue die qua obiit…de terra de Liscaret et de Kareswell" in Devonshire and Cornwall, dated 1199[441].  It is unsure whether this entry relates to Matilda, daughter of Humphrey de Bohun and Margaret of Hereford.]  m firstly HENRY de Oilly of Hook Norton, Oxfordshire, son of ROBERT d'Oilly & his wife Edith Forne (-1163).  [m secondly (after 1163) JUHEL de Mayenne, son of JUHEL Seigneur de Mayenne & his wife Clémence de Ponthieu (-after 1172).]  [442]m [thirdly] as his second wife, WALTER FitzRobert of Little Dunmow, Essex, son of ROBERT FitzRichard de Clare & his wife Matilda de Senlis (-1198, bur Dunmow Priory).
