Volume 9, page 143: He [Thomas de Monthermer (d.1340)] m. Margaret, probably the widow of Henry TEYES [LORD TEYES], who was executed in 1321.(l) ... She d. 15, 22 or 26 May 1349.(m) Note l: She held in dower 1/3 of the manor of Lydiard Tregoz, Wilts, which belonged to the said Henry (Cal. Close Rolls, 1343-46, p.50; Cal. Fine Rolls, vol.iii, p.427; Cal. Inq. p. m., vol.vi, no.535). Note m: [Cal. Inq. p.m.,] vol.ix, no.344.
Thomas was married to Margaret by 1330, when part of the manor of Lydiard Tregoz was held by Thomas de Monthermer [Victoria County History, Wiltshire, vol.9, p.83, citing P.R.O. CP40/283/229].
As well as the evidence from the tenure of Lydiard Tregoz, it was recorded in 1428 that Margaret de Monte Hermery had formerly held half a fee in Bockhampton [West Bockhampton, in the parish of Lambourn], Berkshire [Feudal Aids, vol.1, p.62]. In 1324 the king had ordered a messuage and land in Bockhampton to be delivered to Margaret, late the wife of Henry Tyeys, which had previously been granted by fine to Henry and Margaret for their lives [Cal. Close Rolls, 1323-27, pp.122-23].
Strong confirmation for this identification of Margaret is provided by a comparison of the date of death - 20 May 1349 - given for Margaret the widow of Henry Tyeys at Alice de Insula's inquisition post mortem [Cal. Inq. p.m., vol.9, no.571; cf. Cal. Fine Rolls, vol.6, p.277], with the dates of death given for Margaret the widow of Thomas de Monthermer at her own inquisitions post mortem - 15, 22 or 26 May 1349 [Cal. Inq. p.m., vol.9, no.344].
[Douglas Richardson pointed out the additional evidence about the tenure of Bockhampton in January 2002.]
