Date of birth has been (erroneously?) reported to be before 1161.

He might be the father of _ de Whalesborough, wife of John le Petit.

//Additional material from RBodine996.aol.com 25/02/1999 The arms of this family are described as Argent, three bendlets, gules. In a bordure, sable, eight bezants. C.S. Gilbert in his An Historical Survey of the County of Cornwall (1820), vol. 2, p. 329 suggests that this family may have been a branch of the family of Valletort, as the arms were also borne by that house. Early records record the family name as Walebreu, Walebraus, Walebras, Walebrawuse, Walesbraus, Wallesbreu, Whalesbrew, and later as Whalesborough.

1. PHARAMUS de WALEBREU. A fine was recorded 19 Oct 1196 between Guy de Wautam, plaintiff and Pharamus de Walebraus, tenant, regarding 1/2 knight's fee in Tregaradoc (Tregardock in St. Teath), which Guy claimed for life against Pharamus, as the marriage portion of Beatrice, who was his wife. Guy quit-claimed all rights to land to Pharamus for 24 marks of silver (Cornwall Feet of Fines, no. 3). Pharamus (Faramo, Faramus) de Walebraus first appears in the Pipe Rolls of Michaelmas 1199 and with the exception of 1201, appears each year until 1207 (Publications of the Pipe Roll Society, vols. 48-60, 1933-1944). He presumably died in late 1207 or early 1208. In 1213 there is a reference to Osmunda, wife of Pharami Walebrawes in the Curia Regis Rolls (1213-1215, p. 21) and he was clearly dead the following year when in another fine of 28 Apr 1214 between Osemunda who was the wife of Pharamus de Walebrawuse, plaintiff and Robert de Cardinham, tenant, by their representatives, Osemunda claimed as her reasonable dower by the gift of Pharamus 1/3 part of the townships of Walebrawuse (Whalesborough in Marhamchurch), Elem (Hellan in Probus), Lameinwall (Lamanva in Budock), Trieseder (Tresidder in St. Buryan), and Hithenho (Edno in Perran-Uthno). Robert granted to Osemunda the manors of Walebrawuse and Lameinwal, to hold during her life, and Osemunda quit-claimed the remainder of the premises (Cornwall Feet of Fines, no. 39).

2. WILLIAM de WALEBRAUS. In 1228-9 and 1235-6, Willelmus de Walebreu was a tenant in Hutheno (The Book of Fees, 1: 394, 436). It may be he or his son who appears in a fine of 18 Nov 1269 between John de Trejagu, plaintiff and William de Walebraus, tenant, regarding 1 messuage and 1 plowland in Skuyek (Skewjack in Sennen). John quit-claimed all rights to William for 30 marks of silver (Cornwall Feet of Fines, no. 237). On 2 Feb 1277 he had protection until Midsummer to go to Wales on the King's service (Cal. Patent Rolls, 1272-81, p. 191) and on 15 June 1278 had protection until Christmas going to Santiago (ibid., p. 269). He was dead 13 Nov 1285 when Hudno was held by the heir of William de Walesbreu (IPM of Edmund, Earl of Cornwall, CIPM, 3: no. 604, p. 476).

3. MARCUS (Marcide, Marci) de WALLESBREU. As Marke le Walebreus he witnessed a deed in 1287/8 (Calendar of Ancient Deeds, 5: no. 10487). Dead by 3 Jan 1301 when John le Brun presented to the church of St. Mawgan by reason of the custody of the land and heir of Mark de Whalesbrewe belonging to the King through the death of Edmund, Earl of Cornwall (Cal. Patent Rolls, 1292-1301, p. 561).

    i.  JOHN de WALESBREUS.  Dead by 1288-1293 when his brother William came

under the wardship of William Bottreux.

    ii.  Sir WILLIAM de WALESBRAUS.  See following.

4. Sir WILLIAM de WALESBRAUS. Born c1288. In 1302 William Bottreux brought Writ of Wardship against Roger Carminow and demanded William, the brother and heir of John de Whalesboro. Roger replied "William whilst your ward married our daughter." Bottreux said, "William de Whalesboro was only 5 years old then, and under 14 now" (Year Book of Edward I, A.D. 1302). He was of age 21 Apr 1309 when Stephen de Bello Prato died holding a 3 acre meadow of William de Whalesbreus in socage and by service of rendering 1d. yearly (CIPM, 5: no. 122). On 11/13 Feb 1312, William de Whalesbrew granted to John de Carmynow the manor of Udnow and the advowson of the Church of St. Piran for the life of the said William (Trigg, 3: 51). Carminow presented to St. Perran-Uthno on 11 Dec 1312 (Reg. Bishop Stapledon, p. 257) and in Feb 1313 regranted the manor and advowson back to William de Whalesbury and Johanna his wife (Trigg, 3: 51). William presented to the church of St. Mawgan-in-Kerrier on 25 Dec 1317 and 31 Oct 1324 (Reg. Bishop Stapledon, p. 255). He died in 1328 and and is named by Risdon with his arms as "Willelmus Whalisburgh de Whalesburgh, knight, Gules, three bandlets argent on a bordure sable, nine bezants" (Notebook of Tristram Risdon, p. 211). As a child of 5, he was married c1293 to Joan (Johanna), daughter of Sir Roger de Carminow, who was Knight of the Shire for Cornwall in 1300 and 1302 and who died in 1308 leaving his son, Oliver, as his heir (Knights of Edward I, 1: 183). In a fine of 10 May 1321, Joan, wife of William de Walesbreu was called a sibling of Oliver de Carminow (Cornwall Feet of Fines, no. 458). In another fine of 13 Oct 1333 she is called Joan, who was the wife of William de Walesbreu (ibid., no. 528). As Joan, relict of William de Whalesbreu, she presented to St. Mawnan-in-Kerrier 23 Feb 1347 and 6 Nov 1348, but apparently died soon after when Sir John de Whalesbreu made the next presentation on 6 Aug 1349 (Reg. of Bishop Grandisson, p. 1365, 1368, 1406).

5. Sir JOHN de WALESBREU. Born 1314-1316. John, Earl of Cornwall presented on 2 May 1335 to St. Mawgan-in-Kerrier, in place of John de Walesbreu, who was still a minor (Reg. of Bishop Grandisson, p. 1309), but in the 1337 caption of seizin of the Duchy of Cornwall, John de Walesbreu was holding 3 knights fees in an illegible location and 1 fee in Hutno, for which he is required to do castle guard and all other services in proportion to his holdings (DCRS, NS, 17: 6, 7). Johannes de Whalisbreu, miles (knight), was Knight of the Shire for Cornwall at the Parliaments of 7 June 1344 and 23 Sep 1353 (Returns of Members of Parliament, p. 138, 153). In 1346, Johanne de Walesbreu held Laimaylwen and Lancarf "since his father William formerly held it" (quod Willelmus pater suus prius tenuit). (Feudal Aids, 1: 214). Presented to the church of St. Perran-Uthno on 17 July 1348, 19 June 1349, 10 Jan 1361/2 and to St. Mawnan-in-Kerrier 6 Aug 1349, 3 Apr 1350, 7 Dec 1361, 4 Mar 1361/2, and 22 June 1381 (Reg. of Bishop Grandisson, pp. 1367, 1392, 1472, 1396, 1406, 1470, 1478; Reg. of Bishop Brantyngham, p. 70). It was likely he who appears as Sir John Walesborough on the Roll of Edward III bearing arms "gules, three bandlets a bordure engrailed sable." Sir John died before 6 July 1382, leaving the manors of Udnou, Walesbrewe (Whalesborough), Treros, Langkerf (Lancarffe), Lamelwen (Lamellion) and Elwen and their advowsons to his widow, Margaret for life should she not remarry (Cal. Patent Rolls, 1381-5, p. 194). However, she did marry again, to Philip Trethosa, and a dispute over the wardship of the lands and heir ensued.

    i.  JOHN WHALESBOROUGH.  See following.
    ii.  BENEDICT WHALESBOROUGH (WALESBREU).  Likely a son, presented
        by Philip Trethose, his step-father, as Clerk to the Church of St.
        Mawnan-in-Kerrier on 7 Apr 1391.  (Reg. Bishop Brantyngham, p. __)

6. JOHN WHALESBOROUGH. Born c1369. His wardship was first committed to his mother and her 2nd husband, then passed in June 1383 to William, Lord Botreaux, with whom they remained until he proved his age in June 1391 and gained control over his inheritance. Commissioner of Array for Cornwall in 1399, 1403 and 1405; Knight of the Shire for Cornwall in 1402; Justice of the Peace 1403-1407.

He died 10 Jan 1418 in possession of 7 manors (having acquired Tresidder) and

extensive lands in Cornwall. He married, by 1399, Joan, daughter of Sir John Raleigh, of Nettlecombe, Somersetshire. She married 2ndly, Sir Thomas Pomeroy, and died 1435/6. (CIPM, 20: no. 298; History of Parliament, 1386-1421, 4: 822)

    i.   John Whalesborough, born 1405.
    ii.  Robert Whalesborough.
    iii.  William Whalesborough.
    iv.  Thomas Whalesborough.  Sheriff of Cornwall 1436.
    v.   Alice Whalesborough, m. John Fitz Rafe.
    vi.  Emayne Whalesborough, m.  Thomas, Lord Scales.
    vii. Anne Whalesborough, m. William, Lord Moleyns.
    viii. Elizabeth Whalesborough, m. John Hampden.

ISABEL de WALESBREU. Called "Isabell, the daughter of Sir John Whalesborow" by Pole in Devon, p. 422. This is cited by CP, 4: 97 (Daubeny). Per CP, 12(2): 649 she married Sir Henry de Wilington, of Umberleigh, Devonshire and Poulton, Gloucestershire. Henry died 1349. Their children:

    i.   John de Wilington, born 1340, son and heir.
    ii.  Thomas de Wilington (Pole's Devon, p. 422)
    iii.  Alianore de Wilington, died 1400, m. 1359 Sir Giles Daubeny (died

1386).

         (CP, 4: 97)

Since Isabel's son was born 1340, that would place her birth in or before 1320.

She was probably the daughter of John de Walesbreu (3.i.) who was dead by 1293

leaving his brother heir to the family lands. She could not have been the daughter of John Whalesborough (5) who was a minor in 1335.

Well, I certainly misstated myself here. Clearly Isabel, born about 1320, was not the daughter of John de Walesbreu who was dead by 1293. Possibly she was a granddaughter or could well have descended from an obscure collateral line. I am at a loss as to how she otherwise fits in.
