    HOLDERS OF THE HONOUR OF CLARE (VII) 1217

    GILBERT DE CLARE, EARL OF HERTFORD, also Lord of Clare, &c., son and heir, who, about 1218, was in right of his maternal descent recognized as Earl of Gloucester. He died 25 October 1230 and was buried at Tewkesbury. [Complete Peerage III:244]

    EARLDOM OF HERTFORD (IV) 1217

    GILBERT DE CLARE, EARL OF GLOUCESTER AND HERTFORD, son and heir inherited from his father the Clare estates; from his mother those of Gloucester; from his grandmother the honour of St. Hilary, and from his ancestress, Rohese, a moiety of the Giffard estates. See fuller particulars sub GLOUCESTER. [Complete Peerage VI:503, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    EARLDOM OF GLOUCESTER (IV) 1217

    GILBERT DE CLARE, Earl of Gloucester and Hertford, son and heir of Richard de Clare, Earl of Hertford, more generally known as Earl of Clare, by Amice, 2nd daughter and coheir, and eventually sole heir, of William FitzRobert, Earl of Gloucester, inherited the Clare estates from his father, those of Gloucester from his mother, and a moiety of the Giffard estates from his ancestress Rohese. By the death of Isabel, Countess of Gloucester, 14 Oct 1217, his mother, Amice, became sole heir of her father, William, Earl of Gloucester, abovenamed, and appears to have been recognised as Countess of Gloucester up to her death, circa 1 Jan 1224/5. Gilbert was b. probably circa 1180. In June 1202 he was entrusted with the lands of Harfleur and Mostrevilliers. In 1211 he held 6 1/2 knights' fees in Kent of his mother's maritigium, and she as Amice, Countess of Clare, offered 40 marks for the recovery of certain fees of which she had been disseised by Guy de Chanceaus. In Jun 1215 he was one of the 25 barons made guardians of Magan Carta. In Dec 1216 he was excommunicated by Innocent III, and at that date and in the following March had letters of protection. He fought on the side of Louis of France at the battle of Lincoln, 19 May 1217, and was taken prisoner by William Marshal, whose daughter he married later. In the following July he was at Gloucester. In Nov 1217, shortly after the death of his aunt, Isabel, Countess of Gloucester, he appears to have been recognised as Earl of Gloucester. In the same month as Earl of Gloucester and Hertford he confirmed several benefactions. In Jan 1217/8 he was one of the King's dilecti et fiedeles, and in Oct one of the Council, approving the King's Seal. In July 1222 he was forbidden to attack the castle of Dinas Powys, in Glamorgan. From this time he frequently attests royal grants. He joined the Earl Marshal, his brother-in-law, in an expedition into Wales in 1223. In 1225 he was present at the confirmation of the Great Charter by Henry III, and in that year the sheriff of Gloucester was ordered to pay him 20 pounds "in the name of the county," as previous Earls of Gloucester had had it. He the took part of Richard, Earl of Cornwall, against the King in July 1227 with regard to the forest laws and the misgovernment of Hubert de Burgh, and in Sep was one of the nobles accredited to meet the princes of the Empire at Antwerp. He led an army against the Welsh in 1228 and captured Morgan Gam, who was released next year.

    He m. 9 Oct 1217, Isabel, daughter of William Marshal, Earl of Pembroke, by Isabel, daughter and heir of Richard de Clare, known as Strongbow, formerly Earl of Pembroke. Being engaged in an expedition to Brittany, he d. on his way back at Penros in that duchy, 25 Oct 1230. His body was conveyed by way of Plymouth and Cranbourn to Tewkesbury, where he was buried before the high altar, 10 Nov 1230, a monument being erected by his widow. He made his will 20 Apr and 23 Oct 1230. His widow m., 2ndly, 30 Mar 1231, Richard, Earl of Cornwall, 2nd son of King John. She d. 17 Jan 1239/40, in childbed, at Berkhampstead, of jaundice, and was buried at Bealieu, Hants, her heart being sent to Tewkesbury Abbey. [Complete Peerage V:694-6]

    ------------------------

    Gilbert de Clare, 5th Earl of Hertford, who, after the decease of Geoffrey de Mandeville, Earl of Essex, the 2nd wife of Isabel, the divorced wife of King John, and in her right Earl of Gloucester, and her own decease, s. p., as also the decease of Almarick D'Evereux, son of the Earl of Evereux by Mabell, the other co-heiress, who likewise succeeded to the Earldom of Gloucester, became Earl of Gloucester, in right of his mother, Amicia, the other co-heiress. This nobleman was amongst the principal barons who took up arms against King John, and was appointed one of the twenty-five chosen to enforce the observance of Magna Carta. In the ensuing reign, still opposing the arbitrary proceedings of the crown, he fought on the side of the barons at Lincoln, and was taken prisoner there by William Marshall, Earl of Pembroke; but he soon afterwards made his peace. His lordship m. Isabel (who m. after his decease, Richard, Earl of Cornwall, brother of King Henry III), one of the daus., and eventually co-heiress of William Mareschal, Earl of Pembroke, by whom he had issue, Richard, his successor; William; Amicia, m. to Baldwin de Redvers, 4th Earl of Devon; Agnes; Isabel, m. to Robert de Brus.
