  • ID: I07712
  • Name: Hugh de PLESSIS , of Hook & Kidlington, Sir 1 2 3
  • Sex: M
  • ALIA: Hugh de /Plessy/
  • Birth: ABT 1237 in Hook Norton, Banbury, Oxfordshire, England 4
  • Death: 7 AUG 1292 in Kidlington, Ploughley, Oxfordshire, England 5
  • Note:
    SIR HUGH DU PLESSIS, son and heir by 1st wife, was aged 24-26 at his father's death (c). He received gifts of timber from the King in 1265 and 1270; does were given to his (unnamed) wife (jacenti in puerperio) in January 1269/70 and in November following. In July 1273 he went to France to meet King Edward on his return from the Holy Land. He was summoned for service in Wales 1277 and 1282.

    He married, 1stly, as a child, before October 1249, Isabel, 3rd and youngest daughter and coheir of John BISET (died 1241), by Alice BASSET (h). The date of Isabel's death is uncertain. He married, 2ndly, in or before January 1278/9, Joan, widow of John DE SOLEHAM (or SULEHAM), of Hempton, Oxon, and daughter of Hugh DE HOYVILL (b). Hugh died shortly before 7 July 1292. [Complete Peerage X:548-9, transcribed by Dave Utzinger]

    (c) His father's IPM. The King had remitted rights in wardship of Hugh to his father, Feb 1252/3. In 1255 John was trying to obtain an aid from his tenants for the knighting of this son (who would not be Earl of Warick). On his father's death the Earldom passed to William Mauduit of Hanslope--See Warwick. Hugh's inheritance as son of John du Plessis by Christian de Sanford consisted chiefly of his mother's 1/2 fee in Great Missenden, Bucks, and land in North Moreton, Berks, with the manor of Stottesdon, Salop. The steps by which Hook Norton and Kidlington were deflected from the rightful heirs may be seen from grants to John. Bradenham, part of the same (D'Oilly) inheritance, was quitclaimed by Hugh, on his father's death, to its then rightful heir, though he took the opportunity of the later disturbances to seize it back again.

    (h) Alice Basset was 3rd dau. and coheir of Thomas Basset, of Hedington, Oxon (d. 1220), by Philippe, eldest dau. and coheir of William Malbank, lord of Wich Malbank, Cheshire. His 1st marriage brought him the manor of Headingto and property in Wich Malbank.

    (b) As to Suleham and Hoyvill (where Hempton appears as Houton). This Hugh de Hoyvill (the name is spelt also Oville, Dovyle, etc.) is probably the Hugh who held 1/4 fee in Funtley, Hants, in 1242-3. The two fines referred to above, compared with a date when the 1st wife of Hugh du Plessis was living, show that Margery, his daughter by his 2nd wife, was presumably born before their marriage.

    (c) His dau. Christian, to whom he gave Stottesdon, m. John de Segrave, afterwards Lord Segrave.

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

    Hugh de Plessets, who, doing his homage in April, 1263, had livery of the manors of Oxenardton, Kedelinton, and Stuttesdon, co. Oxford, which were his mother's inheritance; the two former being holden of the king by barony, for which manors in the 48th Henry III [1264] he paid 100 for his relief. This feudal lord m. Isabel, dau. of John de Riparius, and dying in 1291, was s. by his son, Hugh de Plessets.
