Note
Legend and research has it that ...... Dear Denis ~ Thank you for your post. You asked a very good question. Couples of high station were sometimes married twice, once in the woman's country and again in the man's. Two examples I know of are John of Gaunt and his brother, Edmund of Langley. A couple could also be married by proxy, as King Henry III was to Jeanne de Dammartin. In such cases, the proxy marriage was usually followed by a normal ceremony before a priest at a later date. In King Henry III's case, he married Jeanne de Dammartin by proxy, then asked for a divorce from Jeanne de Dammartin, pleading consanguinity. In the meantime, he had married Eleanor of Provence, which I'm sure complicated things for the Pope. The Pope wisely granted him the divorce he sought. In King Philippe III's case, I show that he and his wife, Isabelle, were dispensed to marry 1 Dec. 1258, they being related in the 3rd and 4th degrees of kindred [Reference: B. Barbiche, Les Actes Pontificaux Originaux des Archives Nationales de Paris 1 (Index Actorum Romanorum pontificum ab Innocentio III ad Martinum V electum, vol. 1) (1975): 375-376]. According to the Archbishop of Rouen's records which I cited in an earlier post, this couple were officially married 6 July 1262, before the kings of France, Aragon, and Navarre, and various French prelates and barons. I triple checked the date to make sure I had it correctly transcribed and converted. I have no idea of the origin of the usual date of marriage [28 May 1262] for Philippe III and Isabelle. However, clearly something is askew. Perhaps this is a case in which the couple were married twice. If John Ravilious is so disposed, perhaps he can chart for us the kindred between Philippe III and Isabelle. Below is a list of New World immigrants who descend from King Philippe and Isabelle.

Since posting this information, I've located two dispensations which concern the marriage of this couple. These dispensations are found in the following source: Maurice P. Sheehy, Pontificia Hibernica, vol. 2 (1965), pp. 293-294,297. These records make it clear that Maurice and Maud were married before 28 October 1259, when a dispensation was granted to remove the impediment which make their marriage irregular. The impediment in question was that Maud de Prendergast had been married (1st) as a child to Maurice's younger brother, David Fitz Maurice, who died in 1249.

Amy Wyllys Best always, Douglas Richardson, Salt Lake City, Utah E-mail: royalancestry@msn.com From: Douglas Richardson (royalancestryNOroSPAM@msn.com.invalid) Subject: Re: Juliane Fitz Maurice, wife of Thomas de Clare View: Complete Thread (15 articles) Original Format Newsgroups: soc.genealogy.medieval Date: 2000/02/20 Hi Raymond: In answer to your question, it appears that Sir Thomas de Clare and Juliane Fitz Maurice were married shortly before 18 February 1275. It is difficult to know when Juliane was born but I would estimate around 1261, as noble women were generally around 14 when their marriages were consummated. Juliane's father, Sir Maurice Fitz Maurice, married his first wife, Maud de Prendergast, shortly after 1258, following the death of Maud's second husband, Maurice de Rochford. Maud de Prendergast was born about 1242. So the chronology fits fine for Maud de Prendergast for to be the mother of Juliane Fitz Maurice. I estimate that Maud was about 19 when Juliane was born. In any event, Juliane could not possibly be the child of her father's second wife, Emmeline Longespee, as that marriage took place long after Juliane's birth. Also, English records prove that Emmeline Longespee died without issue. All for now.

Best always, Douglas Richardson >> >> ______________________________ ------------------------------ ************** ************** ************* ************* Friday, 6 June, 2003 Hello All, In the original post on this issue, I put forth the proposition that the passing of Hemyock and Hidon, Devon to the great-granddaughter of Margaret de Hydon (and not to her heir male, and grandson, John de Dinham) in 1357 showed that she was the mother of Josce de Dinham's younger son Oliver, but not of his elder son John (d.v.m. 1332 or before). An ongoing review of the available information concerning birth and marriage dates for this family finds that there is no basis for supposing John was not her elder son, and that the passage of these lands to her younger issue (or descendant thereof) was not unusual for the period. At the same time I wish to make this information known, I am also pleased to advise that several sources (including KSB Keats-Rohan's Domesday Descendants) have made it possible to extend the ancestry of Margaret de Hydon some 7 generations, to the 12th century Devonshire tenant Robert Foliot (d. before 1130). Also, there is now one unidentified generation only now barring similar extension of her ancestry to the Domesday tenant Otelin de Hidon: once this has been resolved, that information will be posted to the newsgroup as well. ~ Perhaps with some future good fortune, any linkage between the Foliots of Devon and the family of Gilbert Foliot, Bishop of London (maybe even the Foliots of Nottinghamshire) will yet be discovered..... This affects the ancestry of many individuals descended from the Lords Dinham, and in particular that of the following 17th century emigrants to America: 1. William Asfordby 2. Barbara Aubrey 3. George Blakiston 4. Nehemiah Blakiston 5. William Bladen 6. Charles Calvert 7. William Farrar 8. Mary Launce 9. Elizabeth Poole 10. Capt. William Poole 11.

Ravilious ______________________________ ------------------------------ ************ ************ ************* ************ Dear Newsgroup ~ It has been stated in all sources that I've consulted that Elizabeth Arundel, widow of Thomas Mowbray, Duke of Norfolk (died 1399) married before 19 Aug. 1401 (as her 3rd husband) Sir Robert Goushill, of Hoveringham, co. Nottingham, by whom she had two daughters, Joan and Elizabeth [see Complete Peerage, 9 (1936): 604, note f (sub Norfolk)]. The two Goushill daughters were evidently named in their father's inquisition post mortem taken in 1403, Joan being then aged two and Elizabeth being aged one. Joan Goushill later married Thomas Stanley, Lord Stanley, and Elizabeth Goushill later married Robert Wingfield, Knt. Many American colonists descend the two Goushill sisters. It appears, however, there was a third Goushill daughter named Joyce born posthumously after her father's inquisition post mortem. Her existence is known from a lawsuit dated c. Sept. 1407 [Michaelmas 8 Henry 4] in which the three Goushill co-heiresses, Joan, Elizabeth, and Joyce, sued their uncle, Nicholas Gousehill for the manors of Barleburgh and Kynwalmersh, co. Derby, they being "daughters and heirs of Robert de Goushille." [Reference: Genealogist, n.s. 15 (1898): 154-155]. In their petition, the three co-heiresses identify their father, Robert, as the son of Nicholas de Goushill, Knt., so there is no confusion about which Robert de Goushill is intended. These statements are confirmed by the Goushill pedigree found in Thoroton's History of Nottingham, by John Throsby, vol. 3, pg. 62, which pedigree shows Robert Goushill, knight (husband of Elizabeth Arundel) was the son of Nicholas de Goushill, Knt. The author also shows that the Goushill family of Hoveringham held the manors of Barleburgh and Kynwalmersh, co. Derby as early as 20 Edward II. It is interesting that although this lawsuit has been in print since 1898, it seems to have escaped the attention of all modern sources. The lawsuit was at least partially successful, as Throsby, pg. 63, states that Sir Anthony Wingfield, Esq., a descendant of one of one of the three Goushill co-heiresses, "suffered a recovery of the manor of Barleburgh," co. Derby in 5 Henry VIII. As for Joyce Goushill, it would appear that she died as a child, as no further record is known of her. For interest sake, I have posted below a list of the colonial immigrants who descend from the two surviving Goushill daughters.
