Baldwin de Redvers

M, b. June 4, 1155

Parents

Family: Lucia of Balun (b. circa 1085)

Biography

  • Birth: Baldwin de Redvers was born on June 4, 1155 in Quarr, Isle of Wight.
  • Note: 2nd Earl of Devon Baldwin de Redvers, 2nd Earl of Devon. This Earl upon the demise of King Henry I, espousing the cause of Henry's daughter Maud or Matilda (who had married Henry, Emperor of Germany and thus called Empress Maud, who married later Geoffrey Plantagenet and they were parents of Henry II), took up arms immediately and fortified his castle at Exeter and the Isle of Wight; but being besieged by King Stephen (son of Henry I's sister Adela and Stephen of Blois, Crusader), he was obliged to surrender the castle and all his other possessions and to withdraw and go into exile. (This fight between Empress Maud to put her young son Henry, a baby, on the throne of England, ended in an agreement between her and Stephen whereby she agreed to let him become King if in return her son Henry succeed him, which was done. Stephen was King 1135-1154 and Henry II was King 1154-1189.) Baldwin de Redvers took refuge at the court of the Count of Anjou, and soon after conducted a successful raid into Normandy. About Lent in 1138 he was taken prisoner in Normandy by Enguerrard de Say, a partisan of Stephen, but escaped and returned to England in the autumn of 1139, and, landing at Wareham, seized the Castle of Corfu. This he defended successfully against the King, forcing him to eventually withdraw the siege. By the Empress Maud he was created Earl of Devon, probably about 1141. He married Lucia, daughter of Dru of Balun. He died June, 1155. (Kin of Mellcene Thurman Smith, page 276-277)

    He was the son of Richard de Redvers, 1st Earl of Devon. Baldwin de Redvers is also called 1st Earl of Devon. He founded several monasteries, notably those of Quarr Abbey (1131), in the Isle of Wight, and the Priory of St. James, at Exeter. (Wikipedia.)

Richard de Redvers

M, b. September 8, 1107, d. 1137

Parents

Family: Adeliza de Breteuil (b. 1050)

Biography

  • Birth: Richard de Redvers was born on September 8, 1107.
  • Death: He died in 1137, at age ~30.
  • Note: Richard de Brionis or Abrincis, surnamed de Redvers. He resigned the barony of Okehampton, custody of Devon and government of Exeter to his nephew, Robert de Abrancis, but they were brought back in again when Hawise above married Reginald. He stood in high favor with King Henry I, who later made him Earl of Devon, and who granted him the Isle of Wight in fee. He died 1137 and was buried at Brightley Abbey, but afterwards transferred to Ford Abbey. He married Adeliza, daughter and coheiress of William Fitz-Osborne, Earl of Hereford. He was succeeded by his eldest son, Baldwin. (Kin of Mellcene Thurman Smith, page 276)

    He accompanied William the Conqueror to England in 1066. The precise origins of this 'Richard de Ripariis' or Richard de Redvers are unclear; one school of though places him as the son of Baldwin Fitz Gilbert, who was Sheriff of Devonshire and brother of the Richard Fitz Gilbert who established the de Clare family, another denies the connection and claims the two families were entirely separate. Richard Fitz-Gilbert, first Earl of Devon, who has been more than once previously confounded with his father's kinsman, Richard Fitz-Gilbert Clare, was one of the earliest Norman settlers this country, and although he did not receive at first such a large share of the plundered property of the Saxons, as fell to the lot of his brother Baldwin de Brion, yet he held six manors, as sub-tenant to the latter, five under the Earl of Mortaigne, uterine brother to King William; two, under William the Porter and Ralph de Pomeroy respectively, besides the Manor of Levaton in that part of the parish of Ipplepen (now Woodland), which was his own demesne in the year 1087.

    He assumed the name of Richard de Ripariis, afterwards anglicized into Redvers, or less commonly, Rivers. Richard de Redvers was one of the principal supporters of Henry I in his initial struggle against his brother Robert Curthose for control of the English throne, and bestowed on him the towns of Tiverton, Honiton (1100) and the honour of Plympton, together with a yearly pension of one-third of the revenue of that county. shortly after Henry took power. The Lordship of the Isle of Wight was also bestowed on him in 1102, which remained in his lineal descendants through a series of De Redvers and De Vernons until the reign of King Edward I. In the cartulary of Carisbrook he is called the nephew of William Fitzosbern, 1st Earl of Hereford, and the grant of the Isle of Wight to him after the death of Roger de Breteuil, certainly gives some support to the assertion. William Fitzosbern had at least one other daughter besides the unfortunate Countess of Norfolk, of whom we learn no more than that she became the mother of Raynold de Cracci. Her daughter may have been the wife of Richard de Redvers, which would justify the expression "nepos," used indifferently for nephew or grandson. By others sources, his wife was Lady Adeliza, a daughter of William Peverel of Nottingham and his wife Adelina of Lancaster. (From Wikipedia, the community-written free encyclopedia.)

Baldwin Fitz Gilbert de Redvers

M, b. circa 1032, d. 1090

Parents

Family: Albrida of Goz (b. circa 1032)

Biography

  • Birth: Baldwin Fitz Gilbert de Redvers was born circa 1032 in Meules, Normandy, France.
  • Death: He died in 1090.
  • Note: Baldwin de Brionis, 2nd son, who for the distinguished part he had in the Conquest obtained from King William I the Barony of Okehampton, the custody of the County of Devon, and government of the Castle of Exeter in fee. He and his descendants were called Lords of Exeter from this Castle. He married Albrida, daughter of Richard, surnamed of Goz, Count of Auranche, by his wife Emma (sister of William, the Conqueror). They had a daughter Emma, who married William de Abrancis, and their great-granddaughter Hawise married Reginald de Courtenay, and they were the parents of Robert de Courtenay, who married Mary de Redvers. This marriage brought the property back into one line. (Kin of Mellcene Thurman Smith, page 276)

    Baldwin Fitz-Gilbert, of Brionis or Moels, 2nd son, a follower of the Conqueror, called Vicecomes, and Baldwin of Exetor. He was Seigneur de Meules and du Sap, in Normandy. After the death of his father, who was murdered by the son of Giroie, he and his brother Richard, who was ancestor of the de Clares, took refuge at the court of the Duke of Flanders. Duke William afterwards restored to Baldwin his estates of Meules and Sap, and to Richard FitzGilbert his estates of Bienfaite and Orbec, portions of their father's lands. Baldwin received from the Conqueror some 150 lordships in Devonshire, Hemington and Parlock and Apley in Somerset, and Iwerne in Dorset. Okehampton was the capital seat of his barony. He was Sheriff of Dorset 1080-1086 probably until his death. (After the Conquest the sheriffs were still the King's representatives in the county. As the King was nearly absolute, the sheriff was very powerful. The sheriff had important duties: 1. Finance. He farmed the shire at a fixed sum a year. 2. Justice. He was the King's representative in the shire court, and he sat there as president, or as a royal judge. 3. War. It was the duty of the sheriff to summon the forces of the county. The great lords led their own retainers, but the sheriff led all the rest of the troops.--Montague's Elements of English Constitutional History. E. E. W. Very different from modern sheriffs. This was from a textbook at Washington University.) In Domesday Book he is called Baldwin of Exeter, or Baldwin, the Sheriff. He married Emma or Albreda, niece of the Conqueror. He died 1090. They had Robert, Richard and William. Also a natural son called Viger. (Kin of Mellcene Thurman Smith, page 669.)
