Pembroke, died s.p. Her sister Agnes married (i) Maurice Fitzgerald, (2) Hugh
de Balliol, and (3) John D'Arvennes, while Isabella, another sister, married
John Hastings, Lord Bergenny. Yet another sister, viz., Elizabeth, married
Sir Richard Talbot. By Joan Comyn David Strabolgi had a son, David, born
1307-8, who married Catherine, daughter of Henry de Beaumont {4th son of
Louis, the second son of John, King of Jerusalem, nephew of St. Louis) by
Alice Comyn, (April 19, 1326-7), Countess of Buchan, daughter and co-heiress of
Alexander Comyn, 4th Earl Buchan. This brave lady defended Locliindorb
Castle, Nov., 1335, and again in Aug., 1336. In the former year her husband
was slain at the siege of Kildrummy Castle, 30 Nov., 1335, in his 28th year.
By him she had, with Da^dd, the last Earl, a daughter Isabella, who
apparently became the wife of Sir Edmund de ComewEiU. David, who
fought Lq France under the Black Prince, married Catherine (or as some
authorities say, Elizabeth), daughter of Henry, second Lord Ferrers of Groby

by Isabel, daughter and co-heiress of Theobald, Lord Verdun. She died in
1375) twelve days after her husband, leaving by David Strabolgi, last Earl,
co-heiresses, consigned by the King to the custody of Earl Percy, who
married them to his two sons, viz., Sir Thomas Percy, whose wife was
Elizabeth, the senior co-heiress, and Sir Ralph, who married Philippa, the
junior co-heiress.

The former by Elizabeth Strabolgi had Sir Henry Percy, who left as
co-heiresses Elizabeth (who married (i) Sir Thomas Burgh of Gainsborough,
a family extinct in five generations, (2) Sir William Lucy), and Margery,
wife (i) of Lord Grey of Codnor, and (2) of Sir Richard de Vere. Elizabeth
de Strabolgi on the decease of Sir Thomas Percy, re-married Sir John Scrope,
and by him had an only child, Elizabeth, wife of Sir Thomas Clarell of Ald-
wark, York, born 1394. Their daughter Elizabeth married in 1340, Sir
Richard Fitzwilliam, of Wadworth, co. York, who died 1478, leaving by
her Sir Thomas Fitzwilliam of Alwark, M.P. and Speaker (1448-95), whose
wife was the Lady Lucy Neville, fourth daughter of John, Marquess of Montagu,
brother to Warwick, the King-maker, co-heir of George, Duke of Bedford.
By her he had Thomas Fitzwilliam of Aldwark, born i486, who fell at Flodden,
1513, having married Agnes, daughter of Sir Hugh Pagenham, a lady who
re-married Sir William Sidney. With other issue they had Alice, wife of Sir
James Foljanibe of Walton, Derby, whence the Foljambes of Aldwark. Revert-
ing to PhUippa, second co-heiress of David de Strabolgi, last Earl of Athol, and
wife of Sir Ralph Percy, she re-married Sir John Halsham, by whom she had a
son, Sir Hugh Halsham, who died s.p., 1441, and a daughter Johanna, wlio
married Sir John Lewkenor, of Goring, Sussex.*

As has already been stated, the first wife of Sir Edmund de Cornewall, son
of Sir Edmund, was Isabella. By her he had an only son, John, who died,
vit. pair, and s.p. In an Inquisition ad quod damnimi, held 34 Edw. III., 1360,
the King sought to ascertain if it would be to his damage or to that of others,
if Sir Edmund de Cornewall, Isabella, his wife, and their son John, were to
retain the Manor of KentweU, which had been granted them by David, Earl
of Athol without the royal licence. The Manor in consequence was confirmed

to them and the heirs of their son John, the holder to be tenant in chief of
the King.

A further Inquisition waa held, 47 Edward III. (1374), when it appeared
that Sir Edmund had held in fee tail by gift of David, late Earl of Athol, to him
and to his wife Isabella, the Manor of Colynbourn Valence, Wilts., with
remainder to the said Earl and his heirs, who were shown to be the daughters of
the Earl's son, David, who had died vit. pair., and further that these ladies,
being under age and in the then custody of the King (who afterwards assigned
them to that of Lord Percy in wardship) claimed to be the next heirs of Sir
Edmund and Isabella, who had died without surviving issue. A further
Inquisition in 1377 proved that John had died prior to 1374. Additional light is
thrown on the subject by two entries in the Rot. Origin. : First, " 6 Edw.
III. Wiltes. Edmund, the son of Edmund de Cornubia, paid a fine of £10 for
license to purchase the Manor of Col3mbourn, Wilts." And secondly, 48
Edw. III. " The King grants to Henry, Lord Percy, the custody of Col5mgbourn,
which belonged to Edmund de CornewaU, deceased, and which by the minority
of the heirs of David de Strabolgi, late Earl of Athol, deceased, etc. — he to hold
until the lawful age of the heirs, rendering yearly 20 marks."

Sir Edmund de CornewaU would seem to have resided mostly on his
Manor of Thonock, Line. The following from Leland's Itinerary, as regards
the date is obviously erroneous, but otherwise not inaccurate : "In paroch.
Ecc. de Gainesburghe, Dominus Edmund, dominus de Thonak facet boreali parte
ecdesice, et instituit ibidem Tres Cantuarias. Ob. Anno Dom. 1322. 16 Die.
Dec." He further speaks of Thonock as "a great motid Manor place in a
wood."

Concerning the foundation of these Chantries, and also regarding the
Strabolgis Earls of Athol, Mr. Moor, the learned historian of Gainsburgh, has
given a very full and exact account, whereof we append the subjoined excerpts :

" Sir Edmund de CornewaU took steps towards the foundation of a Chan-
try as early as 1369, and himself erected the Chapel on the North side of the
Church {i.e., Gainsborough). There was a considerable delay before the
Chantry was completed. By deed of August, 1369, he intended to give to the
Chantry his Manors of AsthaU, O.Kon., and Colyngbourne, WUts., with lands
and tenements in GasseUne and HoleweU, Herts., but the endowment was after-

wards changed, and in 1371 an Inquisition was held as to whether his Trustees
could without prejudice to the King grant an Endowinent of £20 per annum
from the Manors of Thunnack and Laghton, and other lands in Gaynesburgh
(and elsewhere). The Chantry was for three priests to celebrate divine service
daily for the health of Edmund de Cornwaill, Knight, and Isabella, his wife,
during their lifetime, and for their souls after they have departed this light
{sic) and for the souls of the father and mother of Isabella, late wife of Edmund,
and of his children, progenitors and heirs and of all the faithful at the altar of
Blessed Mary, on the Nortli side of Gaynesburgh Church.* The Jurors having
reported of the solvency of Sir Edmund's Trustees, he paid £40 license in mort-
main to enable the Trustees to assign £20 per annum — this in the Originalia
Rolls. And on August 2, 1398, the gift was completed, he, prior to his decease,
having added a more precise list of those to be prayed for. They were for
himself, Isabella, his second and living wife, Isabella, his deceased wife. Sir
William Willugby, John Breus and Johanna his wife, the Bishop of Lincoln, the
Vicar of Gainsborough, and others." If we compare the dates of the various
Inquisitions, it will appear that Isabella, the first wife, was living in 1360, but
had deceased prior to 1369, at which date Sir Edmund f was husband of
Isabella his second wife and expectant of issue — wherein, as will appear from
the devolution of Thonock he must have been disappointed. There is no evi-
dence to show the surname of his second wife.

This lady was living as late as 1408, and is styled " Lady of Thonnack," so
she must have held the Manor for life. She presented as Patroness of the
Chantries in 1390 on two occasions, and in 1408, conjointly with her husband's
nephew. Sir Louis de Cornewall, who is styled " Lord of Thonack." To antici-
pate—in 1412 Sir Louis presented by himself, so Isabella must have passed
away, and again in 1418. But in 1420 the King presented during the minority
of Sir Louis' heir; and in 1451 Sir Walter Deverose (Devereux), Edmund
Cornewayle, and Edmund Redyng presented jointly, and Thomas Cornewayle
in 1468. In 1471 Sir Thomas Cornewalle presented, and again in 1473, 1493,
and 1499. In 1506, 1507, 1511, 1521, the patronage was exercised by Richard
Cornewall, armiger, and 1531 by Sir Richard CornewaU, as also in 1533. In

1538 George Comewall, armiger, presented, and 1543 Johanna, widow of
Richard Corwell (sic), Knight. In 1541 the Chantry was suppressed.*

According to Holies' Church Notes, p. 201, among the arms on the tomb
of Sir Thomas Burgh, in Gainsborough Church are those of Comewall, e.g.,
" Arg. a Lyon rampant G. Crowned or. A bordure engrayled sa Besantee."
But the relationship remains an insoluble problem.

In the Lay Subsidy Roll, i Edw. III., 1327-28, Edmund de Comwayle
paid 10 shillings and 7f pence ; Johanna de Cornwayle four shillings and eight-
pence, for the Manor of Thunayke. Johanna was Sir Edmund de CornewaU's
only sister [vide hijra] and it would thus appear that she held for life a charge
on the Manor. But in a similar Subsidy, 6 Edw. III., 1332-3, while Edmund de
Comewall pays nine shillings and lod., Johanna's name is absent. Probably
she had forfeited her rights by marriage. At the decease of Isabella, widow
of Sir Edmund de Cornewall, and Lady of Thonock, circa 1408, the Manor
of Thonock passed to her husband's nephew. Sir Louis, eventual heir of Sir
Edmund's youngest brother, Peter de Cornewall, {vide infra].

(2) The second son of Sir Edmund de Cornwall by Elizabeth de Brampton
was Bryant de Comewall, of Kinlet, who was granted by his mother the manors
of Worthen, Overgorther, Baughaltre, and part of Abberley. The precise date of
his birth cannot be determined, but it could scarcely have been earlier than
1315. In 25 Edward III. an Inquisition ad quod damnum was held to decide
whether it would be to the King's damage if he were to hcense Elizabeth,
mother of the said Bryan de Comewall, to convey her Manors in Salop to
Henry de Mortimer the elder and Reginald De la Hay, J and for them to regrant
the said Manors to her for life with remainder to her son, Bryan de Comewall
and his heirs ? This hcence apparently was granted.

* The above entries show not only the devolution of the Advowsons of Thonock Chantry
but of the Manor also, whereof it formed a pendant. Sir George Comewall bequeathed his
Lincolnshire estates to his cousin. William Nanfan of Birtsmorton — albeit, by a visitation held at
Homcastle 1562, Humphry his son was ser\'ed as heir. Giles Nanfan aliened Thonock to the
Towers family, and in the visitation of 1592 that family are shown to have been landoivners in
Thonock for several generations. William Towers aliened a moiety of Thonock to WUham
Godfrey, whose son Joseph married Catherine WiUoughby, sister of Lady Hickman. In 1714 their
great grandson sold his moiety to Sir Willoughby Hickman. The other moiety had passed by
purchase to the Welbys of Denton, who circa iSro sold it to the Hickmans. Both moieties are
now in the possession of Sir Hickman Bacon, premier Baronet of England.

t Rot. Origin., 28 Edw. HL, Bryan, son of Elizabeth, wife of Edmund de Comewall. gives £10
for licence to purchase the reversion of the Manors of Overgorther and Bachaltre, a moiety of
Worthen, and 1000 acres of wood in Aberleye, of the said Ehzabeth.

t The Mortimers and De la Hays were joint owners of lands round Urishay Castle, the ancient
demesne of the De la Hays, which still remains in that family. [See " Robinson's Castles of Here-
fordshire."]

t It has been asserted that Bryan de Cornewall, by Maude Strange, had, besides Sir John of
Kinlet. and Isabella, Lady Blount, three sons, viz., Henry, Bryan, and Thomas, and there certainly
was a Henry Cornewaile, Valet to King Edw. III., as appears from the Roll of Bishop Brantingham.
He was awarded a pension of sixpence per diem, with a bonus of £4. Also a Henry de Cornewaile
was witness to the Will of Edmund de Mortimer, Earl of March, May i, 13S0. (Test. Vet., vol. i.,
p. 112). If that be so, these three sons must have died s.p., inasmuch as Sir John, the son of Lady
Blount, by Ahcia, daughter of Kennard De la Bere, had a son Humphry, who was served heir of
his cousin. Lady Lychfeld, me Cornewall, who again was heu- of her father. Sir John de CornewaU.
Another account makes Henry, Bryan, and Thomas sons of Sir John de Cornewall of Kinlet, i.e.,
brothers of Ladv Lvchfeld, and' to have died s.p. They do not appear in the pedigree drawn up very
carefully by the' late Dr. Marshall, York Herald. It may be added that Humphry Blount, Sheriff of
Salop, 1461, married EUzabeth, daughter of Sir Robert Winuington of Cheshire, and by her had
Thomas, Sheriff of Salop, 1480, who by Anne, daughter of Sir Richard Croft, had a family of twenty
children, inter alios Edward, who married Joyce, daughter and heiress of John Carne or Garneis — (see
the Visit. Salop pedigree, 1623). By her he had as co-heiresses, Catherine, wife of Sir James Crofts,
and Agnes of John Hopton of Bitterley, from whence come the Vaughans of Humphreston. Salop.

of Tixall,* Staffordshire, left at his decease, 2 Henry V., (1415), three co-
heiresses, viz. : —

I. — Elizabeth, wife of Roger Corbet of Moreton Corbet, Salop, s.p.

2. — Matilda, wife of John Wode. s.p.

3. — Elizabeth, bom 1391, according to the Lansdowne MSS., 86, p. 165,
twenty-four years of age on her marriage, who by Sir WiUiam
Lychefeld had an only child, Margaret. In the Inq. post mortem
on Sir John ComewaU, 1415, mention is made of Isabel, wife of
Sir William Lychefeld as his only daughter and heir. This Isabel
or Elizabeth died before 1430, and the monument in Kinlet Church
with an infant by her side, is attributed to her. Apparently Sir
William t had only a Ufe interest in Kinlet. He married as his
second wife, Joan, who survived him, but by her had no issue, as
is expressly stated in the Inq. p. m. held at his decease, 1441.

* In Clifford's History of Tixall it is stated the family name was Gastinois — a sub-division
of Orleanois, and that the first Gastineys was a companion of the Conqueror. The last of the family.
Rose, wife of Sir J. Merston, aliened the Manor to Sir Thomas Littleton, the Judge, and later it was

The following shows the devolution of the Manor of Kinlet : —
(i) De Brampton.

(2) Comewall 1309 — 1415. By marriage with De Brampton.

(3) Lychefeld 1415 — 1446. For Ufe only.

(4) Blount 1446 — 1581. By marriage with Comewall.

(5) Lacon 1581 — 1657. ^Y marriage with Blount.

(6) Childe 1657 — ^757- ^Y rnarriage with Lacon.

(7) Baldwyn, later Baldwyn-Childe

1757 to the present date. By marriage with ChUde.

There has therefore been no break In blood from the De Bramptons to
the Baldwyn-Childes.

The only daughter of Bryan de Comewall by Maude Strange was Isabella,

who became the second wife of Sir John Blount of Sodington, and by him,

who died 1424, had a son Humphry, certified in an Inquisition held 31 Hen.

VI. (1453) to be cousin and heir of EUzabeth, wife of Sir William Lychefeld,

THE HOUSE OF CORNEVVALL. 69

(3) The third son of Sir Edmund de Cornwall by Elizabeth de Brampton
was Peter, who could not have been bom earlier than 1316. We find him
serving as Valet* in the King's Household, 44 Edward III. (PeU. Records, 286).
He married Agnes, daughter of Roger Hanley, by whom he had a son Edmund,
who died young, and a second son. Sir Louis, described as of Berrington.
As already has been stated, this gentleman in combination with his aunt
Isabella, widow of Sir Edmund de Comewall, presented — as " Lord of
Thonock" — to Thonock Chapelry in Gainsborough.

Peter de ComewaU died July 13, 10 Richard II., (1387), as an Inquisition
post mortem showed, seized of the Manors of Ashton Stonage, Herefordshire,
with lands in Buryton, his heir Edmund being two years of age, and in the
custody of Sir Bryan de Cornewall, Baron of Burford. f This Edmund must
have died prior to 1405, and s.p., inasmuch as in that year his brother, Louis,
was in possession of the estates. Louis married Agnes, daughter of Sir Richard
De la Bere, J of Kynnersley Castle, and must have been knighted at Agincourt,

* Vide the Roll of Bishop de Brantingham of Exeter, Lord High Treasurer, p. 286 (Reprint
1835), Oct. 8, 44 Ed. lil. To Peter de Comewale, Valet of the King's Household, to whom the
Lord the King by his Letters Patent lately granted £40 yearly to be received at the Exchequer
during his life for the good service rendered to the same Lord the King — for money paid to him for
his half year's allowance. £20.

t From Mr. Massingberd's " Court RoUs of Ingoldmell's, we extract the following : —

P. XX. vi. — " Louis Comewaile being seized of the manors of Thuimak and Laghton, and of
lands in Upton, Northorp, etc., granted them May 6, 1405, to feofiees by the name of Lewis
Comwayle, son and heir of Peter Comwayle. In 1420-1 Edmund was son aiid heir of Louis, being
of the age of ten years and more,"

Ibid : " In the Banco Roll 579, m. 178, d., Louis is called Kinsman and heir of Edmund de
Comevaill."

Ibid: "Court RoUs, 4 July, 1330 (».e. of Ingoldmells). Distraint on Richard de Comewayle
for ser\'ices not rendered, and for tenements at Stretton next to Stow." In 1327 and 1325 this
Richard had previously been distrained upon for fealty and other ser\-ices. He was probably a
brother of Louis.
