Right Ward Knights

John de Burgh Baron de Lanville (Lanvaley), Sir Charles Oman has him the grandson of Hugh de Burgh 1st Earl of Kent (not inherited) and son of John de Burgh and Hawise de Lanvaley, b. 1236 Walkern, Hertfordshire d.1279 (28 at Lewes) married Cecily de Baliol. He inherited manor at Banstead, Surrey. Munchensy, Munchensi d.1289, brother-in-law and ward to William de Valance, Earl of Pembroke and Like many other young nobles who had been wards of the king's favourites, Munchensi joined the baronial party. (cited as fighting in Gilbert de Clares Ward) Ralph Basset, Lord of Drayton (died Evesham 1265) marired to Margaret, daughter to Roger de Someri baron of Dudley. Issue: Ralph Basset, Maud who married John Lord Grey de Wilton. Note: Ralph Basset of Scapcote is another branch of the family, being governor of Northhampton and also died with de Montfort at Evesham. William Henry Blaauw’s The Baron’s War (Cambridge 1871) has John fighting at Lewes, Evesham and Chesterfield. Note Hugh de Neville is related. Submitted as a rebel in 1266 and was pardoned, he was a signatory in the rebel case made to Louis IX at the Mise of Amiens in January 1264. Install as keeper of the peace for Essex by de Montfort in 1264. His son, Richard (junior) fought for the King throughout indicating the family was backing both sides, the son replacing the father as keeper of the peace following Evesham. Devile, de Vile, Daiville. Of Egmanton. B.1234 d.1290/1 (30 years old at Lewes). A Yorkshire knight, dismissed as Keeper of the Forests he became a Montfortian, achieving Sheriff of Yorkshire in 1263 in Simon’s supremacy. He occupied York and Carlisle castles against the King. Uncertain if he was at Lewes but took up arms in Yorkshire previously, fought for de Montfort in March 1265 against royalists holding Richmond castle, fought and survived and escaped from the battle of Chesterfield in 1266. Lord of Bourne d. c. 1282, married Hawise de Quincy c.1268. His presence at Lewes is disputed. Sir Charles Oman has him absent on the basis that he was captured at the fall of Northampton 5 April 1264. Thomas Baines (Yorkshire past and present ..) has him present and William Henry Blaauw (The Baron’s War including the battles of Lewes and Evesham 1871) questions his presence. The issue arises from his capture at Northampton but given that Simon de Montfort (younger) was both captured and present at Lewes and that we do not know the conditions of surrender and captivity, I am placing him at Lewes. If he had broken a parole and faith with the Prince, the gamble paid off in the short term given the Rebel victory one month later. Tony Moore, research Associate Reading University has in Fine of the Month 2009 (Henry II Fine Roles website) William Martel (Son of Ralph Martel) fighting at Lewes for the Rebels from fine rolls records. Fought for the barons – being captured at Kenilworth during the Wars of the Disinherited following Evesham. Lozengy vair and gules
