Matilda de Beauchamp 1 2 3

  • Marriage (1): Robert [V] Marmion

  General Notes:

MATILDA de Beauchamp. Her marriage and parentage are confirmed by the undated charter under which her son "Robert Marmion, neveu de Guillaume de Beauchamp" made a declaration concerning a donation of property to Sainte-Marie-de-Barberie and the charter dated 1224 under which "Robert Marmion le jeune, fils de Mathilde de Beauchamp" donated property to the same abbey.

m as his first wife, ROBERT Marmion [V], son of ROBERT Marmion [IV] & his wife Elisabeth de Rethel (-after 29 Sep 1194).


He [Robert Marmion (who d. 1218)] married, 1stly, Maud DE BEAUCHAMP (j). [Complete Peerage VIII:509-10, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

(j) Tamworth had been granted to William son of Walter de Beauchamp by the Empress Maud circa 1141. Round suggests that "in their rivalry for Tamworth, the Marmions embraced the cause of Stephen, and the Beauchamps that of Maud, their variance being terminated under Henry II by a matrimonial alliance." This alliance presumably took place before King Henry II's charter of 1155 to Robert Marmion the second, when his son Robert, afterwards the justice, could not have been more than a boy.

Note: CP does not indicate the parents of Maud, merely hinting that she is a descendant of Walter de Beauchamp (I have him as grandfather). John Ravilious, in a post to soc.genealogy.medieval, has her as daughter of William de Beauchamp, d. 1170, and Maud de Braose.


While CP above has Maud being the 1st wife of Robert Marmion (the son), Alan Wilson, in a post to SGM, identifies Maud's ancestry and states she was married to Robert Marmion the father:

Robert II Marmion, b. before 1133, d. circa 1181, m. Maud de Beauchamp, dau. of William de Beauchamp and Maud de Braose. About 1170/1175 Robert grants the church of Checkenden to the Priory of Coventry (Boarstall Cartulary No. 1). [Alan B. Wilson, SGM 14 Apr 1997] 4

Matilda married Robert [V] Marmion, son of Robert [IV] Marmion and Unknown. (Robert [V] Marmion died before 1217 4.)
