Hugh de Mortimer

1274 - 1304

Father Robert de Mortimer
Mother Joyce la Zouche
Wife Maud
Children Joan, Margaret


Hugh was born in or around November 1274, the son of Robert and Joyce (1). He had a sister Isabel at least five years his senior (2) and a younger brother William (3). He also had a half sister, Felicia, from his mother's first marriage (3).

His father died in about July 1287 (4)(5), and his mother in about March 1290 (6).

He married a woman named Maud (aka Matilda) (7) in October 1290 (36), whilst a ward of the king (37), and they had two daughters, Joan, born about November 1291, and Margaret, born about September 1295 (8). (If there were any other children, they pre-deceased him)

He was summoned to parliament in 1297 and 1299 (19). He seems to have been in financial difficulties in 1297, but these were eased by being excused scutage in March (20), and being granted a little more time to settle his inherited debts in April (21). His debts were still a matter of public record in 1299 (23) and 1301 (25).

In August 1297 he arranged jointure for his wife, when he enfeoffed a large part of his lands to the Bishop of Bath and Wells, and the bishop granted them back to Hugh and Matilda jointly (22).

He fought at the siege of Caerlaverock in 1300, at which time his arms were "Gules, two bars Vaire" (24). He was on the king's service again in 1303 (26).

Hugh died in about July 1304 (27)(28)(29), having apparently been poisoned by his wife (30), who survived him by less than four years (31)(32)(33)


Brief details of his children:



Sources:

  1. Robert de Mortuo Mari's (unnamed) heir was mentioned as a minor on a number of occassion following Robert's death (e.g. (9)(10)(15)(16)(13)(14)). The last time being in May 1294 (17). Hugh was then given seisin of his inheritence, being of age in December 1295 (18). His birth was therefore sometime between May 1273 and December 1274, but very likely at the end of that period
  2. Isabel is named as Robert's daughter following his wife's death (11)(12), at which time (in or before March 1290 (6)) she had already been enfeoffed with the manor of Huntebere by her mother, so was obviously "of age" by then, and seemingly had been for some time, putting her birth in or before March 1269.

    March 12 1290. To Master Henry de Bray, escheator this side Trent. Order to deliver to William de Bello Campo, earl of Warwick, the lands that Joyce, late the wife of Robert de Mortuo Mari, tenant in chief, held at her death of her own inheritence, and as her dower of Robert's lands, to have in name of custody until Robert's heirs come of age, as the king, on 8 May, in his sixteenth year, granted to the earl whatsoever he had in his hands of the lands that belonged to Robert, to have until Robert's heirs come of age, with the knights' fees and dowers when they should fall in, and the lands of the inheritence of the heir's mother if they came to the king's hands during the wardship, saving to the king the marriage of the heirs and the advowsons of the churches.
  7. Matilda (aka Maud)'s surname is not known, but Complete Peerage, Volume 9, pp 264-5 claims her to be a niece of William le Marshal, and probably a distant cousin of Queen Eleanor of Castille (citing correspondance from Eleanor's son Edward, prince of Wales, who calls her cousin). This view is also stated in "Murderous Maud? The case against Maud Mortimer of Richard's Castle", chapter 6 of "Portraits of Medieval Women: Family, marriage, and politics in England 1225-1350", 2003, Linda E Mitchell. In "The Court and Household of Eleanor of Castile in 1290", John Carmi Parson, 1277, she is also said to be thought to be a relation of the queen, although William le Marshall is not mentioned.
  8. At an inquisition following Hugh's death, held in Shropshire on 30th August 1304 (29), Joan was said to have been 12 years old on the previous November 25th, and Margaret was said to be have been 8 years old on the previous September 14th.
    A later inquisition following the death of his widow (32), held in Essex on 22nd April 1308 claimed that Joan was 15 years and 5 months old, and Margaret was 12 years and 7 months old.
    These ages are further supported by the fact that the elder sister, Joan's, age was the subject of a further inquisition (34), which showed that she was born in November 1291.

    And then Hugh de Mortimer,
    who well knew how to make himself beloved;
    with two fesses vair he raised
    His banner which was red.

  36. "The Court and Household of Eleanor of Castile in 1290", John Carmi Parson, 1277, includes a transcript of the Liber Garderobe of Queen Eleanor in 1290 (British Library Add MSS 35294), which includes the following entries on pages 126 and 127:
    Desponsacio de mortuo mari. Eodem die ibidem [29/10/1290] positum super librim as desponsacionem Hugonis de mortuo mari.       v.s
    oblacio. Eodem die ibidem in oblacione ad missam relevacionis uxoris Hugonis de mortuo mari.       xiii.d
    The accompanying notes claim that the missam relevacionis for Maud (presumably some type of blessing) occured on the morning after the marriage, but as far as I can see these two entries, and all those in between, refer back to the same previously stated date of 29th October.
  37. "The Court and Household of Eleanor of Castile in 1290", John Carmi Parson, 1277, cites an entry from Chancery (C/47/4/5 fol b) dated May 1290, in which he is descibed as:
    "infans existens in custodia Regis"
