Richard de Percy

Sir Richard de Percy (c. 1170-1244), 5th Baron Percy, was a Magnate from the North of England, and a participant in the First Barons' War.[1]

He was the son of Agnes de Perci, suo jure Baroness Percy, the heiress of the Percy estates, and her husband Joscelin of Louvain, who was styled "brother of the queen" (referring to Adeliza of Louvain, second wife of Henry I).[1] It is from this marriage descends the House of Percy, following the assumption of the name Percy by Louvain.[1][2]

Percy was one of the twenty five barons appointed to enforce the observance of Magna Carta. Along with his nephew William (c. 1183-1245), latterly the 6th Baron Percy, he was amongst the lords who rose in arms against King John and his estates declared forfeit.[1] Upon John's death Percy immediately made his peace with Henry III, and had his lands restored to him.[2]

Baron Percy died in 1244, and is buried at Whitby Abbey.[2]

  • Percy, Richard de by Walter Eustace Rhodes
  • PERCY, RICHARD de, fifth Baron Percy (1170?–1244), born about 1170, was second son of Agnes, heiress of the original Percy family, and Josceline de Louvain, a younger son of Godfrey, duke of Brabant, who took his wife's name on his marriage. Richard is said to have taken a prominent part in the vehement opposition of the northern barons to the proposed sale of Northumberland to William the Lion in 1194. In 1196 Percy's elder brother Henry died, leaving a son William (1183?–1245) [q. v.], in his fifteenth year. Percy assumed administration of his nephew's lands and the baronial rights as fifth baron Percy, though the officially appointed guardian of the minor was William Brewer (d. 1226) [q. v.] In the same year his mother Agnes died, and he seized her lands, while he received the lands of his aunt the Countess of Warwick by bequest. After his nephew had attained his majority, Richard retained his property. A long litigation between the two was not concluded till 1234, when it was decided that Richard should hold the moiety of the Percy estates bequeathed to him by the Countess of Warwick, but at his death the whole property was to revert to William.
  • Percy was one of the northern barons who began the struggle which ended in the signing of Magna Charta by refusing to accompany the king to France in 1213 (Stubbs, i. 580; Rog. Wend. Rolls Ser. ii. 114). On 7 May 1215 he and some others made an attempt to treat with the king (Patent Rolls, 17 John, Record Comm. p. 180); he was one of the twenty-five executors of Magna Charta (Stubbs, i. 582), and he was excommunicated by Innocent III by name on 26 Dec. In 1216 he and other northern barons reduced Yorkshire to the obedience of Louis of France (Rog. Wend. ii. 169, 190). On 11 May 1217 Henry III granted Percy's lands to his nephew William. But they were restored by the king on Percy's submission on 2 Nov. (Close Rolls, Record Comm. i. 308, 339).
  • Percy helped to besiege Ralph de Gaugi in Newark Castle in 1218 (ib. i. 379 b), and he was one of three barons charged with the destruction of Skipton Castle in 1221 (ib. p. 474). In 1236 he appears among the witnesses of the confirmation of the charters (Annals of Tewkesbury, i. 104). The year after, when in the parliament the barons prepared to deliberate apart on the king's demands, Gilbert Basset suggested to the king that he should send some of his friends to attend the conference. The words caught the ear of Richard de Percy, and he indignantly cried, ‘What did you say, friend Gilbert? Are we foreigners then, and not friends of the king?’ (Matt. Paris, Hist. Maj. iii. 381–2). He died before 18 Aug. 1244 (Excerpta e Rotulis Finium, Record ed. i. 421). The manor of Ludford was left by him to the priory of Sixhills (Rot. Cart. Joh. p. 159 b).
  • On the death of his first wife, a sister of William Brewer, Percy married Agnes de Neville, by whom he had two sons, Henry and Alexander.

  • JOSCELIN de Louvain, [illegitimate] son of GODEFROI V "le Barbu" Duke of Lower Lotharingia, Comte de Louvain & [his mistress ---] (-1180). His parentage is confirmed by a manuscript genealogy of the Percy family which names “Matildem et Agnetem” as the daughters and heiresses of “Willielmus de Percy”, adding that Agnes married “Goselino Lovayn fratri Ducis Brabantiæ”[1180]. It appears likely that he was illegitimate. If it is correct that he married after 1154, he would have been rather old at that date to have been born from Duke Godefroi’s first marriage. On the other hand, Duke Godefroi’s second wife was probably too old to have given birth to children after her marriage with the duke. Joscelin accompanied his half-sister Adelisa to England when she married King Henry I in 1121. He was granted the honour of Petworth, Sussex by Queen Adelisa before 1151. The Red Book of the Exchequer refers to "Jocelin de Lovein xv m et dimidiam" in Yorkshire in [1167/68][1181]. The Red Book of the Exchequer refers to "Jocelinus frater Reginæ vi l" in Yorkshire in [1171/72][1182]. "…Jocelino fratre regine…" subscribed the charter dated to [Aug 1177/Jun 1181] under which Henry II King of England confirmed donations to the cathedral of Chartres[1183].

"Agnes de Perci…in viduetatis meæ" confirmed the donation of "ecclesiam de Samara" made by "Willelmus de Perci pater meus" to Whitby, for the soul of "Jocelini mariti mei defuncti", by undated charter[1186]. “Agnes de Percy” confirmed donations of property by “Matildis comitissa de Warwicke soror mea” to Sawley abbey, for the souls of “Jocelini quondam sponsi mei et Willielmi de Percy patris mei et Adelidis de Tunebrigge matris meæ”, by undated charter, witnessed by “…W. de Percy…”[1187]. “Agnes de Percy” made a grant to the hospital of St Peter, York, after the death of “sponsi mei Jocelini de Luvain”, by charter dated to [1182/85][1188]. The Red Book of the Exchequer, listing scutage payments in [1190/91], records "Agnes de Percy" paying "xx s per Simonem de Kime, ii milites" in Lincolnshire[1189]. The connection between Agnes de Percy and Simon de Kyme has not yet been established. However, one explanation could be that he was her grandson, son of Agnes’s daughter, as discussed more fully below. The Red Book of the Exchequer, listing scutage payments in [1194/95], records "Agnes de Percy" among those granted delayed payment "per brevia" in Lincolnshire[1190]. A charter dated 4 Feb 1196 records a claim by “Sibillam de Vall et Agnetem de Percy” against the church of Beverley relating to “advocacione ecclesie de Lekenfeld”[1191].

The Red Book of the Exchequer, listing scutage payments in [1190/91], records "Henricus de Percy" in Sussex[1193].

A charter dated to [1190/96] notified that “Adam de Brus” granted property to “Henrico de Perci et Isabelle filie mee uxori sue” on their marriage[1195]. This suggests that Isabel must have been only eleven years old at the most at the time of her marriage, assuming that her father’s dates of marriage and death are correctly stated above. “Juetta de Arches” granted property to “Isabelle de Brus filie mee” by charter dated to 1192[1196].

The Percy inheritance was split between him and his nephew William de Percy (son of his older brother William). Richard received those parts in the hands of his mother, but on his death this moiety reverted to William.

Richard had one [illegitimate] son by [an unknown mistress]:
      • a) HENRY [de Percy] (-after 1267). Probably illegitimate, as he did not inherit his father’s moiety of the Percy barony. He may have been “…Henrico de Percy…” who witnessed the charter dated 13 Apr 1226 under which “Ricardus de Percy” confirmed the donation of Topcliffe church to York Cathedral by “Willielmi de Percy avi mei”[1204].

It is assumed that "Simonem de Kime" can be identified as Simon, son of Philip de Kyme and his wife Hawise. The connection between Agnes de Percy (presumably the widow of Joscelin de Louvain, see above) and Simon de Kyme has not yet been established. However, it is highly unusual in the Red Book to find a widow recorded as paying scutage on behalf of another person (this is the only example which has been noted so far during the preparation of the present document). The entry therefore suggests a close family relationship between the two. Simon de Kyme was a minor in [1190/91] (a curia regis entry records that "Sim de Kima" replaced "Hawisie matris ipsius Sim" in a lawsuit relating to the dowry of "Agnete de Amundevill" in 1194[1210], demonstrating that he must have acted through his mother as guardian until that date). The death of his father is estimated in [1189]. In the normal course of events, one would have expected Simon’s mother to have acted on his behalf in transactions in [1190/91]. However, if she was temporarily unavailable for some reason (illness, childbirth…), it is possible that she would have been replaced by her own widowed mother, who would therefore have been Simon’s maternal grandmother. The name of Simon’s mother is recorded in other sources as Hawise, for example the undated charter under which “Philippus de Kima et uxor eius Hahewissa” confirmed donations to Bullington priory, Lincolnshire by "Simon filius Willelmi pater meus"[1211]. m PHILIP de Kyme, son of SIMON de Kyme & his wife Agnes --- (-[1189]).]
