1. Richard FitzPons

Matilda of Gloucester 2

  • Marriage (1): Richard FitzPons 1
  • Died: After 1127

   Another name for Matilda was Maud of Gloucester.

  General Notes:

[MATILDA (-after [1127]). A charter dated to [1127] records that "Ricard Pontii filii" granted the manor of "Lechia" to "Mathildi uxori mee in matrimoniu" in exchange for her original marriage portion, the manor of Ullingswick in Herefordshire, which he gave to "Helie Giff in mat-monu cum filia mea Berta". Round indicates that this charter means that Matilda must have been the daughter of Walter of Gloucester, noting that Ullingswick was recorded in Domesday Book as belonging to the church of Hereford, and also that King Henry I confirmed its grant and that of Little Hereford by the bishop of Hereford to Walter of Gloucester by another charter. The fact that Matilda named two of her children after her supposed parents also indicates that this parentage is probably correct (although the name Walter was already used in the FitzPons family before Richard´s marriage). "Ricardus filius Puncii" donated "ecclesiam de Lecha" to Great Malvern monastery, Worcestershire, for the soul of "uxoris meć Mathildis et liberorum meorum…", by undated charter, witnessed by "Simon et Osbernus fratres mei…".

m RICHARD FitzPons, son of PONS & his wife --- (-[1127/29]).]
