About William de Beauchamp, Lord of Bedford

William de Beauchamp (1185) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia William de Beauchamp (c.1185–1260) was a British judge and High Sheriff. He took part in the 1210 expedition to Ireland and the 1214 expedition to Poitiers before joining the rebellious barons in 1215 at the beginning of the First Barons' War, entertaining them at his seat of Bedford Castle; as such Beauchamp was one of the rebels excommunicated by Pope Innocent III. He was captured at the Battle of Lincoln on 20 May 1217 but made his peace with the government; by this point he had already lost Bedford Castle to Falkes de Breauté in 1215, leading to an odd situation; Breauté was granted the castle, while Beauchamp held the barony. When Breaté fell from power Bedford Castle was sieged and partially destroyed on royal orders, but Beauchamp was granted licence to build a residence within its Bailey. He was part of a royal expedition ambushed by Richard Marshal in 1233, and was appointed a Baron of the Exchequer in 1234 and 1237. Between 1234 and 1237 he also served as High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, and when Eleanor of Provence was crowned queen in 1236 he served as an Almoner. He died in 1260, leaving a son, also called William. [1]

William was born in 1185. He was the son of Hugh de Beauchamp and Isabella deSacre Wake.[2] He was born in 1185 at Bedford, Bedfordshire, England[3] William was born about 1187.[4]

A writ dated 4 October 23 Edward I [1294], after the death of Isabel, late wife of Simon de Bello Campo, resulted in an Inquisition in Bedford which found that Isabel held the manor of Wottone in dower by the assignment of Simon son of William de Bello Campo, and the heirs of the barony of Bedford were 1.Roger, aged 30 plus, son of Simon's sister Maud; 2.Joan, aged 30, daughter of Simon's sister Ela, and wife of Ralph Paymel; 3.Isabel, aged 24, daughter of Ida, daughter of Simon's sister Ela, and wife of Simon de Pateshulle; 4.Elizabeth, aged 34, daughter of Simon's sister Ela, and the wife of John de Horbur' 5.the heirs of the body of Beatrice sometime sister of the said Simon, who were Otto deceased, Maud aged 26 married to John Botetourte, and William de Montecanyso of Edwardestone, aged 12, but because Otto survived his mother the jury were doubtful whether Beatrice's share of the barony should revert to the children of her first or second husband.[6]
