F, b. March 20, 1297, d. September 19, 1349


Family: Edmund Plantagenet of Woodstock (b. August 5, 1301, d. March 19, 1330)


  • Birth: Margaret Wake was born on March 20, 1297 in Liddel, Cumberland, England.
  • Marriage: She and Edmund Plantagenet of Woodstock were married in 1325 in Blisworth, Northamptonshire, England.
  • Death: Margaret Wake died on September 19, 1349, at age 52, in Orkney, Orkney Islands, Scotland.
  • Note: Margaret Wake (1283-1349) was the wife of Edmund of Woodstock, 1st Earl of Kent.

    She was the daughter of John Wake, 1st Baron Wake of Liddell, and was descended directly from Llywelyn the Great, Prince of Gwynedd. Her mother was Joan de Fiennes, making her a cousin of Roger Mortimer, 1st Earl of March.

    Margaret married John Comyn, son of the John Comyn who was murdered by Robert the Bruce in 1306. Her husband John died at the Battle of Bannockburn, and their only child, Aymer Comyn, died a toddler in 1316. She married for a second time to Edmund of Woodstock, 1st Earl of Kent, they having received a dispensation in October 1325, with the wedding being celebrated probably at Christmas.

    Through her marriage to Edmund (who was executed for treason in 1330), she was the mother of two short-lived Earls of Kent and of Joan of Kent (wife of Edward, the Black Prince). The pregnant Margaret and her children were confined to Salisbury Castle, and her brother Thomas Wake was accused of treason but later pardoned. When King Edward III of England reached his majority and overthrew the regents, he took in Margaret and her children and treated them as his own family. She succeeded briefly as Baroness Wake of Liddell in 1349, but died during an outbreak of the plague that autumn. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.)

Hugh of Morville

M, b. circa 1105, d. 1162


Family: Beatrice of Beauchamp (b. circa 1120)


  • Birth: Hugh of Morville was born circa 1105 in Morville, Manche, Basse-Normandie, France.
  • Death: He died in 1162 in Scotland.
  • Note: Hugh de Morville († 1162) was a Norman knight who made his fortune in the service of David fitz Malcolm, Prince of the Cumbrians (1113-24) and King of Scots (1124-53).

    His parentage is said by some to be unclear, but Professor Barrow, in his Anglo-Norman era states: "it seems probable that the father of William, and the first Hugh de Morville, was the Richard de Morville who witnessed charters by Richard de Redvers for Montebourg and the church of St. Mary in the castle of Néhou in the early twelfth century."

    Hugh came from Morville in the Cotentin Peninsula, territory controlled by David since it had been given to him by King Henry I of England some time after 1106. It must have been sometime soon after 1106 that Hugh joined David's small French household followers and military retinue. In 1113 David became Earl of Huntingdon-Northampton (by marriage) and Prince of the Cumbrians, after forcing his brother Alexander, King of Scots, to hand over territory in southern "Scotland". David achieved this with his French followers.

    David endowed Hugh with the estates of Bozeat and Whissendine from his Huntingdon earldom, and the baronies of Lauderdale and (perhaps later) Cunningham in Scotland. During David's take-over of northern England after 1136, Hugh was also given the lordship of Appleby - essentially northern Westmorland. After the death of Edward, Constable of Scotland, almost certainly in 1138 at the Battle of the Standard, Hugh was given this position.

    In 1150 Hugh made a further mark on the history of southern Scotland by founding Dryburgh Abbey for Premonstratensian monks. Hugh eventually retired there as a monk, soon before his death in 1162. An ancient memorial to him in the South wall is said to mark his burial-place.[citation needed]

    Hugh married Beatrice, the heiress of Houghton Conquest, and daughter of Robert de Beauchamp, a son of Hugh de Beauchamp of Bedford. They had at least two sons and two daughters, including his successor, Richard de Morville. Another son, Hugh de Morville, Lord of Westmorland, was a principal player in the assassination of Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury. He subsequently fell out of favour with the king and was forfeited (1174) when the Lordship of Westmorland (which he had inherited from his father who had received it from David I) was granted to his sister, Maud. Hugh II's other sister, Joan (d.1247), married Richard, a younger son of Ralph Gernon of Bakewell, Derbyshire. (Wikipedia.)

Matilda of Taillebos

F, b. circa 1090

Family: Robert of Beauchamp (b. circa 1081)


  • Birth: Matilda of Taillebos was born circa 1090.

William Fitzgilbert of Lancaster

M, b. circa 1115, d. 1170


Family: Gundred De Warenne (b. circa 1115)


  • Birth: William Fitzgilbert of Lancaster was born circa 1115.
  • Death: He died in 1170.
  • Note: William de Lancaster I, or William Fitz Gilbert, possibly also referred to as William de Tailboys (de Taillebois), was the first person of whom we have any record to bear the name of Lancaster and pass it on to his descendants as a family name. William de Lancaster is often described as having been a Baron of Kendal. In fact this is not so clear. A major enfeoffment by Roger de Mowbray put William in control of what would become of the Barony of Kendal, Warton, Garstang, Wyresdale, and at least part of what would become the Wapentake of Ewcross in the West Riding of Yorkshire.

    Egremont Castle. During the Scottish occupation, according to several websites, William was castellan in the castle of Egremont under William Fitz Duncan. According to a later grant to Gilbert Fitz Reinfrid, William must have held some position over the whole forest of Westmarieland (the Northern or Appleby Barony of Westmorland), Kendal and Furness. His claims in Furness may have gone beyond just the forest, but this appears to have put him in conflict with the claims of the Furness Abbey, and this conflict continued over many generations. His family may have had links there before him. Some websites report that his father Gilbert was known as "Gilbert of Furness".

    Most securely, we can say that William's father was named Gilbert, and his mother was Godith. They are both mentioned clearly in a benefaction of William to St Mary de Pré. Indeed, William was often referred to as William the son of Gilbert.

    William was also said to have descended from both Ivo de Taillebois and Elred of Workington, contemporaries of William the Conqueror, but the exact nature of the relationship is unclear and indeed controversial. Most likely, the connection is through daughters of these two men. William married Gundreda, perhaps his second wife, who was said to be the daughter of William de Warenne, 2nd Earl of Surrey. She was the widow of Roger, the Earl of Warwick. Note that King Stephen's son, William, married Gundred's niece, Isabel de Warenne. This implies a very close relationship with the King's party. (Wikipedia)

    IVO TAILBOYES, or TAILBOIS, brother of Fulke, Count of Anjou, a great benefactor of Ackerfield Abbey, had ETHRED who had KETELL who had GILBERT who had WILLIAM, Baron of Kendal (Nicholas' Peerage), Governor of Lancaster Castle, whence he probably assumed the surname of Lancaster; married Gundred, daughter of William, second Earl of Warren, and widow of Roger, Earl of Warwick, and had WILLIAM DE LANCASTER II, Steward to Henry II; married helewise de Stuteville, daughter of Robert de Stuteville.
