    EDMUND DE MORTIMER, son and heir [of Roger by Joan de Geneville], born probably in 1305 or 1306. From March 1322, presumably till the end of the reign, he was in the King's custody. In 1327 he was made deputy keeper of the peace in Salop, Hereford and Worcs by his father. He was knighted at the Coronation of Edward III, 1 February 1327/8. In July 1330 he was joint commissioner of array with his father in Glos., Hereford, Salop and Worcs. The magnates in Parliament, September 1331, interested themselves on Mortimer's behalf, but the King refused to act upon their advice; however, before 21 October, on his own initiative,
    he restored to Edmund the castle and manor of Wigmore, the land of Maelienydd, with the castles of Kenthles and Dynbaud, the land of Kedewayn with the castle of Dolforwyn, and the land of Comotoyder, these being the lands which had formed the subject of the representation of the magnates. On 20 November1331 he was summoned to Parliament by writs directed Edmundo de Mortuomari, whereby he is held to have become LORD MORTIMER.

    He married, 27 June 1316, at Earnwood, in Kinlet, Elizabeth (aged 25 in 1338), 3rd daughter of Bartholomew DE BADLESMERE [LORD BADLESMERE], and sister and coheir of Giles DE BADLESMERE [LORD BADLESMERE.

She married, 2ndly [licence 1335), William (DE BOHUN), EARL OF NORTHAMPTON, who died in September 1360. She died June 1356. [Complete Peerage IX:284-5, XIV:489, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]
