  • William de Beauchamp, 9th Earl of Warwick (1237-1298) was an English nobleman and soldier, described as a “vigorous and innovative military commander”[1]. He was active in the field against the Welsh for many years, and at the end of his life campaigned against the Scots.

    He was a close friend of Edward I of England, and was an important leader in Edward's invasion of Wales in 1277.[2][3] In 1294 he raised the siege of Conwy Castle, where the King had been penned in[4], crossing the estuary[5]. He was victorious on 5 March 1295 at the battle of Maes Moydog, against the rebel prince of Wales Madog ap Llywelyn[6]. In a night attack on the Welsh infantry, he used cavalry to drive them into compact formations, which were then shot up by his archers, and charged[7].

    His father was William de Beauchamp of Elmley Castle, his mother, Isabel Mauduit, sister and heiress of William Mauduit, 8th Earl of Warwick.

    He married Maud FitzJohn.1

Death1301Maud FitzJohn died in 1301.
  • Maud FitzJohn, Countess of Warwick (died 16/18 April 1301), was an English noblewoman and the eldest daughter of John FitzGeoffrey, Lord of Shere. Her second husband was William de Beauchamp, 9th Earl of Warwick, a celebrated soldier. Through her daughter, Isabella, Maud was the maternal grandmother of Hugh the younger Despenser, the unpopular favourite of King Edward II of England, who was executed in 1326.

    Maud was born in Shere, Surrey, England on an unknown date, the eldest daughter of John FitzGeoffrey, Lord of Shere, Justiciar of Ireland, and Isabel Bigod, a descendant of Strongbow and Aoife of Leinster. Maud had two brothers, Richard FitzJohn of Shere and John FitzJohn of Shere, and three younger sisters, Aveline FitzJohn, Joan FitzJohn, and Isabel FitzJohn. She also had a half-brother, Walter de Lacy, and two half-sisters, Margery de Lacy, and Maud de Lacy, Baroness Geneville, from her mother's first marriage to Gilbert de Lacy of Ewyas Lacy. The chronicle of Tintern Abbey in Monmouthshire names Matilda uxor Guidono comitis Warwici as the eldest daughter of Johanni Fitz-Geffrey and Isabella Bygod.[1] Her paternal grandparents were Geoffrey Fitzpeter, 1st Earl of Essex and Aveline de Clare. Her maternal grandparents were Hugh Bigod, 3rd Earl of Norfolk and Maud Marshal.

    Maud married her first husband, Gerald de Furnivalle, Lord Hallamshire on an unknown date. Sometime after his death in 1261, Maud married her second husband, the celebrated soldier, William de Beauchamp, 9th Earl of Warwick. Upon their marriage, Maud was styled as Countess of Warwick.

    Together William and Maud had at least two children.1

Death27 October 1326Hugh the Elder le Despenser died on 27 October 1326.
  • Hugh le Despenser (1262 – 27 October 1326), sometimes referred to as "the elder Despenser", was for a time the chief adviser to King Edward II of England.

    He was the son of Hugh le Despencer, 1st Baron le Despencer (or Despenser), and Aliva Basset, sole daughter and heiress of Philip Basset. His father was killed at Evesham when Hugh was just a boy, but Hugh's patrimony was saved through the influence of his maternal grandfather (who had been loyal to the king).[1]

    He married Isabella de Beauchamp, daughter of William de Beauchamp, 9th Earl of Warwick and Maud FitzJohn.

    He was created a baron by writ of summons to Parliament in 1295. He was one of the few barons to remain loyal to Edward during the controversy regarding Piers Gaveston. Despenser became Edward's loyal servant and chief administrator after Gaveston was executed in 1312, but the jealousy of other barons - and, more importantly, his own corruption and unjust behaviour - led to his being exiled along with his son Hugh Despenser the younger in 1321, when Edmund de Woodstoke replaced him as Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports.

    Edward found it difficult to manage without them, and recalled them to England a year later, an action which enraged the queen, Isabella, the more so when Despenser was created Earl of Winchester. When Isabella and her lover, Roger Mortimer, led a rebellion against the king, they captured both Despensers —first the elder, later the younger. Queen Isabella interceded for Hugh the elder, but his enemies, notably Roger Mortimer and Henry, Earl of Lancaster, insisted both father and son should face trial and execution. The elder Despenser was hanged at Bristol on 27 October 1326.1

  • Sir Hugh (1223 – 4 August 1265) was an important ally of Simon de Montfort during the reign of Henry III. He served briefly as Justiciar of England in 1260 and as Constable of the Tower of London.

    Hugh Le Despenser, chief justiciar of England, first plays an important part in 1258, when he was prominent on the baronial side in the Mad Parliament of Oxford. In 1260 the barons choose him to succeed Hugh Bigod as Justiciar, and in 1263 the king was further compelled to put the Tower of London in his hands.

    He was the son of Hugh le Despenser I and was summoned to Parliament by Simon de Montfort Hugh was summoned as Lord Despencer Dec. 14, 1264 and was Chief Justiciar of England and a leader of the baronial party, and so might be deemed a baron, though the legality of that assembly is doubtful. He remained allied with Montfort to the end, and was present at the Battle of Lewes. He was killed fighting on de Montfort's side at the Battle of Evesham in August, 1265. He was slain by Roger Mortimer, 1st Baron Wigmore; this caused a feud to begin between the Despenser and Mortimer families.

    By his wife, Aline Bassett, he was father of Hugh the elder Despenser. She was the daughter of Philip Basset, who had also served as Justiciar.1

Death1238Hugh le Despenser died in 1238.
  • Sir Hugh le Despenser (died 1238) was a wealthy land owner in the East Midlands of England, as well as High Sheriff of Berkshire. He was probably the son of a Thomas Despencer and the brother of Thomas who died before Oct 1218, and the brother of Rohaise who married Stephen de Segrave. It is said that he married a daughter of Saier de Quincy (-1219) and Margaret de Beaumont (-1234). Hugh and his unconfirmed wife probably had at least three children; Pernell who married Geoffrey Savage, an unknown daughter who married Roger St. John; and Sir Hugh (-1265)

    He was a descendant of a noble family who came to England from the same location and same time as William The Conquerer. This family, which had the sirname of De Albetot became the Stewards of William The Conquerer.

    He held eleven manors in England: in Leicestershire, Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, and Rutland. His son was Hugh le Despencer, 1st Baron le Despencer and his descendants were the infamous Despensers that were favourites of Edward II.

    Hugh le Despencer I is reported to have been instrumental in the repairs to Porchester castle in 1232. This castle was first used by Romans in the 3rd century. Sir Hugh had this ever-evolving castle updated to include a new forebuilding to the keep, portcullises to the gate houses and the repairs to the wall and hall were complete.1
