PHILIP de Belmeis of Tong, Shropshire (-after May 1145). "Philippus de Belmeis…et Matilda uxor mea" donated "terram quæ fuit Selferi de Rochelai" to Buildwas abbey by charter dated to [1138/39], signed by "Philippi de Belmeis, Matildæ uxoris eius, Philippi filii eius, R. filii eius", and witnessed by "Robertus de Belmes…". "Philippus de Belmeis" founding Lilleshall Abbey, Shropshire by undated charter, witnessed by "Philippus filius Philippi de Belmis…domina Matilda filia Willielmi Meschin uxor prædicti Philippi de Belmis…".

m as her first husband, MATILDA de Rumilly, daughter of WILLIAM FitzRanulf Meschin, of Skipton-in-Craven & his wife Cecily de Rumilly (-after 1189). "Philippus de Belmeis…et Matilda uxor mea" donated "terram quæ fuit Selferi de Rochelai" to Buildwas abbey by charter dated to [1138/39], signed by "Philippi de Belmeis, Matildæ uxoris eius, Philippi filii eius, R. filii eius", and witnessed by "Robertus de Belmes…".

She married secondly ([1150]) Hugh [II] de Mortimer . The Complete Peerage explains the the documents which confirm her parentage and second marriage: including (1) pleadings in a suit concerning land at Kimbolton, Hampshire, and in a suit dated Jan 1282 in the Chester County Court, which both name Roger de Mortimer as son and heir of "Maud la Meschine"; (2) Roger Mortimer´s grant of rents in Bisley given to him by "his brothers Philip and Ranulph de Belmeis"; (3) the undated charter under which "Philippus de Belmeis" founding Lilleshall Abbey, Shropshire (quoted above). A manuscript narrating the foundation of Wigmore Abbey records that she was "Matildem Longespey, filiam Willielmi Longespey, ducis Normanniæ" but this is confused and cannot possibly be correct.

Philip & his wife had three children: Philip, Ranulph and Adelicia.


Philip married Matilda de Rumilly, daughter of William FitzRanulph Meschin du Bessin and Cecily de Rumilly, before 1140.1 (Matilda de Rumilly was born about 1120 4 and died after 1189 4.)
