  General Notes:

MARGERY ([1175/85]-after 1255). A manuscript which narrates the descents of the founders of Lanthony Abbey records that "Walterus", son of "Gilbertus de Lacy", married "Margeriam filiam Matildis de S. Walerico, quondam uxoris Willielmi de Brewes". This wording suggests that Margery may have been her mother´s daughter by an earlier marriage, not the daughter of William de Briouse, although no other primary source has yet been identified which suggests that Maud married twice. Nevertheless, the Annals of Worcester record that King John exiled "Walterum de Lacy" in 1211 because he would not repudiate "uxorem suam, filiam W. de Breaus". Her birth date range is estimated based firstly on her oldest son having had three children before he died in 1230, and her husband´s birth estimated to [1172]. If the range is correct, it is likely that Margery was one of her parents´s older children. A charter of King Edward II dated 26 Jan 1326 confirmed donations to Lanthony Abbey, among which a donation by "Walterus de Lacy filius Hugonis de Lacy" for the soul of "dominĉ Margeriĉ uxoris meĉ". King John granted land "in foresta nostra de Acornebur" to "Margaret de Lascy" to build a religious house, for the souls of "W. de Breusa patris sui, Matillid matris sue et W. fratris sui", dated 10 Oct 1216. "Walterus de Lacy" confirmed the donation by "Margeria uxor mea" to Acornbury priory, Herefordshire by charter dated to [1220/25], witnessed by "domino Willielmo de Lascy, domino Simone de Clifford, priore de Careswell, Egidio de Clifford…". An undated charter of Henry III King of England confirmed a donation by "Walterus de Lacy" to the Hospital of Ludlow, Shropshire, for the souls of "Margeriĉ uxoris meĉ…Gilberti de Lacy filii mei". A charter dated 10 Oct 1241 ordered her dower to be assigned to "Margery who was the wife of Walter de Lacy".

Margery married Walter de Lacy, son of Hugh de Lacy Lord of Meath and Rohese de Monmouth. (Walter de Lacy was born about 1172 and died before 24 Feb 1241.)
