Name: Isabel de CRAFT , Heir of Weston & Willey 1 2
Birth: ABT 1198 in Weston Turville, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, England
Death: BEF 1254 in Willey, Rugby, Warwickshire, England
The following is part of a post to SGM, 1 Jun 2007, by Michael Andrews-Reading (mjcar):
A footnote to this adds that: "Cecily Croft's son Roger died without issue 1355 (Cal IPM Henry III 87) leaving three sisters as coheirs: Cecily, Isabella and Beatrice; Cecily died without issue; Isabella was succeeded by her son Hugh de Herdeburgh, holding in 1254 - he was grandfather of Ella le Botiller and Isabel her sister, mentioned in 1286 (Assize Roll, supra) and 1296 (Cal IPM 25 Ed I no 51b); Beatrice's son Nicholas de Charneles held rights in Penn in 1286 and
was succeeded by 1296 by George de Charneles."
NOTE: So VCH Warks (Manor of Monks Kirby) states that Isabel was wife of Hugh de Herdeburgh, but the above IPM apparently indicates that Hugh was her son. I believe the IPM would be more knowledgeable of the relationships. Hugh was the heir presumably because Roger, his father, was already dead (and probably his mother too).
The IPM was NOT in 1355 (must be a typo): Henry III died in 1272 and he was NOT King for 87 years. The date Henry III 37 would be 1252/3. BH states that there was a Roger de Croft (undoubtedly son of Roger & Cecily) who d. s.p. 1255, and he had already granted his Weston Turville lands to Hugh, so Hugh got them at least a year before his death. Presumably Hugh's father Roger was dead when the lands were granted to Hugh on or before 1254.
