William de la Launde

died 1269

Father possibly William de la Launde?
Mother unknown
Wife Lucy de Okeover
Children Joan, William, John, Matilda


William's origins are uncertain, but it seems likely that he originated in or near the village of Newton (on Rawcliff), near Pickering in Yorkshire (1), where he married Lucy de Okeover (18).

Lucy's father, Hugh, granted them the manor of Caldelowe in Derbyshire (2)(3)(4), and this is presumably where they settled, as William witnessed a number of charters around the area in the late 1250s / early 1260s (5)(6)(7)(8) - some of them as a co-witness with his father in law (9)(10)(11)(12), and their eldest son was also stated to have been born in Derbyshire (31). However William also held lands in Maldon, Essex (13), which appear to have been in his family since at least 1220 (14).

Their daughter Joan is believed to have been born around the early 1250s (15), their son William about 1261 (16), and his younger brother John in the second half of the 1260s (16). They also had a daughter Matilda (3)(4), but her date of birth is unknown.

William died in 1269 (17)(28)(29)(30)(31). His wife survived him and remarried (18).


Brief details of his children:



Sources:

  1. William is only referred to in relation to Newton after his death. In 1270 his widow Lucy makes a claim for her dower of his land there (17). Eight years later the claim is repeated, but she adds that he endowed her with his lands in Newton at the time they married there (18).
    By the time of the later claim she was remarried, to Alan Waldeskaf. Three years later she and Alan were named as warranting a claim over land in Alsop, Derbyshire, against her daughter Joan and son-in-law Richard de Morley (19)(20)(21). This confirms that the William de la Launde and Lucy who married in Newton, were the same William and Lucy, parents of Joan in Derbyshire (3)(4).
    A William de la Launde and Eustachia his wife had bought land in Newton (22) sometime before Eustachia's death in 1251 (23). William & Eustachia could be William's parents, or William could have had a first wife Eustachia prior to marrying Lucy, but no evidence has been found to support either conjecture. A further complication is that at the time of her death, Eustachia had an adult son & heir from a prior marriage, also called William (24)(25)(26)(27).

    DE BANCO. Easter, 3 E. III.
    Derb. Richard son of Richard Foljambe and Elizabeth his wife sued John le Porter of Caldelowe and Joan his wife for a messuage and three bovates of land in Caldelowe which Hugh de Acoure had given to William de la Launde and Lucy his wife and heirs of the body of the said William and Lucy, and which, after the death of the said William and Lucy, and of William, son and heir of the said William and Lucy, and of John, brother and heir of the said William, son of William, should descend to the said Elizabeth as daughter and heir of the said John brother of William, and he stated that the said William and Lucy were seised as of fee of the said tenements temp Ed I, and from the said William the right descended, &c (as above). The defendants pleaded they did not hold the whole of the tenements in question, and a jury was ordered to be summoned at Michaelmas term to decide this issue. m. 192, dorso

    DE BANCO. MICH, 7 Ric II
    Derb. The record of an assize was returned into Court which had been taken at Derby on the Monday after the Feast of St. James the Apostle, 7 Ric. II [July 1383], in which Philip de Okoiire (Okeover), Chivaler, claimed the manor of Caldelowe against Goditha, formerly wife of Ralph de Stathum, and others. Goditha answered as tenant, and stated that one Elizabeth, daughter and heir of John de la Launde, "was formerly seised of the tenements and had married one Richard, son of Richard Foljaumpe, and afterwards a Fine was levied in 3 E. III between Joan, formerly wife of John de la Launde, complainant, and the said Richard, son of Richard Foljaumpe, and Elizabeth, deforciants of the manor of Caldelowe and of other lands and tenements, by which Joan acknowledged the said tenements to be the right of Elizabeth, for which the said Richard and Elizabeth granted them to Joan for her life, with reversion to the said Richard and Elizabeth and to the heirs of Elizabeth. And she produced the Fine in Court, and she stated that the said Richard and Elizabeth continued in seisin of the tenements for a long time after the date of the Fine, and at length Richard died, and after his death Elizabeth continued in seisin of them, and died leaving no issue, and after her death the said Goditha and one Peter Peyntour entered as cousins and heirs of Elizabeth, viz., Goditha as daughter of Lucy, daughter of Lucy, daughter of Joan, sister of John, father of the said Elizabeth, and Peter as son of Joan, son of Matilda, another sister of the said John, father of Elizabeth, and she stated that Philip was kinsman of the said Elizabeth more remotely, viz., as son of Thomas, son of Roger, son of John, son of Hugh, father of Lucy, the mother of John, father of the said Elizabeth. And the said Philip, without admitting that such a Fine had been levied, stated that long before Elizabeth held anything in the manor, one Hugh de Okoure, his ancestor, and whose heir he was, viz., father of John, father of Roger, father of Thomas, father of the said Philip, was seised of the manor in demesne as of fee, and gave it to one William de la Launde, Knight, and to Lucy, his wife, and to the heirs male of their bodies, and from the said William and Lucy the manor descended to one William as son and heir, and from this William, who died leaving no male issue, the manor descended to one John as brother and heir, and from this John, who died leaving no male issue, the right reverted to the said Philip, as kinsman and heir of the said Hugh, and after the death of John, Elizabeth had intruded herself into the manor, and Philip being under age had then entered, and was seised of it until the said Goditha and the other defendants had disseised him.
    And Goditha stated she knew nothing of the gift of the manor by the said Hugh, but that the Fine had been levied as above stated, in the third year of King Edward III, and this Fine was a Fine upon surrender,
    "finis super redditionem," and was levied before the Statute by which the non-claim, of such a Fine was restrained, "per quod non clamewm cujuscunque talis finis restringitur." And at the date of the Fine, Roger, the ancestor of Philip, was of full age, and out pf prison, and within the four seas; and the said Roger had not put in his claim to the manor within a year of the levying of the Fine, and therefore Philip was precluded from the present assize. After some further pleadings a day was given to the parties at Westminster on the Wednesday after a month from Michaelmas,* on which day the suit was adjourned to the Morrow of All Souls, and from that date to the Morrow of St. Martin, and from that date to the Octaves of St. Hillary, in statu quo nuno. A postscript states that on that date Philip did not appear and the suit was dismissed. m. 393.
    * As it involved a question of law, the decision was left to the Judges in Bank
  4. "Collections for a History of Staffordshire", Vol 13, 1892. p188 (Extracts from the pleas rolls):
    DE BANCO. EASTER, 7 Ric II
    Derb. William de Skypwyth and William de Burgh, Justices of Assize in co Derby, transmitted the record and process of an assize of novel disseisin taken before them on the Monday the feast of St James the Apostle, 8 Ric II, in these words:-
    An assize, etc, if Goditha, formerly wife of Ralph de Stathum, and others named, had unjustly disseised Philip de Okore (Okeover), Chivali, of the manor of Caldelowe, and a messuage and an acre of land in Caldelowe and Snellesron.
    In this suit Goditha repeated her plea as in the former assize, claiming by virtue of a Fine levied on the Quindene of St Michael, 3 E III, between Joan, formerly wife of John de Launde, complainant, and Richard, son of Richard Foljambe, and Elizabeth, his wife, daughter and heir of John de la Launde, and claiming to be nearer of blood to the said Elizabeth than Philip, and she gave these pedigrees:-

    Philip, the plaintiff
    
    Philip repeated his plea as in the former trial, but added that at the time the said Goditha stated that the Fine was levied, and for all the rest of his lifetime, Roger his ancestor was in Scotland, and not within the four seas of Enland, and that he died in Scotland. Goditha replied that at the time the Fine was levied Roger was within the four seas, becuase he wasat Mynsterton in co. Leicester, which she was prepared to prove. Philip repeated that on the date of the Fine and for a year and a day afterwards, the said Roger was in Scotland, and died there, which he was prepared to prove*. A day was therefore given to the parties in Banco on the Tuesday after three weeks from St Michael, on which day both Goditha and Philip appeared in person, and because the plea could not be determined in co. Derby a day was given to the parties on the Thursday at a month from St Michael, on which day Goditha and Philip appeared in person, and stated that they were prepared to maintain their pleas as given above, and prayed that a jury might be summoned from co Leicester; and the Sheriff was ordered to summon a jury for the Octaves of St Hillary. A postscript shows that no jury had been empanelled up to the morrow of the Ascension. m334.
    * Philip was certainly wrong in his date, for Roger had Letters of Protection whilst in Scotland in 9 E III. It may be assumed, however, that he died or was killed in Scotland (Scotch Roll of 9 Ed III)
