    BARONY OF BARDOLF (II)

    THOMAS (BARDOLF), LORD BARDOLF, son and heir, born 4 October 1282 at Watton at Stone, Herts. Knighted 12 May 1306. He was summoned to Parliament from 26 August 1307, to 23 October 1330.

    He married Agnes, perhaps daughter of William DE GRANDSON, SEIGNEUR DE GRANDSON, on the Lake of Neuchatel in Switzerland, by Blanche, daughter of Louis DE SAVOIR, BARON DE VAUD. He died 15 December 1328, and was buried at Shelford Priory, Notts, aged 46. His widow, who had a protection, August 1337, as being "by birth of the parts of Almain," died 11 December 1357, at Ruskington, co. Lincoln. [Complete Peerage I:418, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    Sir Thomas Bardolf, K.B., as 2nd Baron Bardolf, was summoned to parliament from the 26 August, 1307, to 23 October, 1330 (4 Edw. I), about the latter of which years his lordship d. and was s. by his son, John Bardolf. [Sir Bernard Burke, Dormant, Abeyant, Forfeited, and Extinct Peerages, Burke's Peerage, Ltd., London, 1883, p. 22, Bardolf, Barons Bardolf]

    Page 706, Vol. II of Powicke's King Henry III and the Lord Edward, finds Powicke dealing with Edward's "playing with, not against, feudalism," his attitude to the conventions which underlay the law and custom of the land can be seen in such a letter as this, written in 1304 under his privy seal, three years before he died:

    "The King has offered to Thomas, son and heir to Sir Hugh Bardolf a suitable marriage and he has refused the king's offer and answered that he does not wish to be married, and it seems to the king that the answer is insufficient and it may be a bad example for the king and his heirs and all to whom he wishes to do well if heirs in the king's marriage are suffered to excuse themselves and refuse the marriages offered by the king."

    The chancellor, accordingly, is commanded "to be as stiff and hard toward Thomas in this business as can be without offending the law; for the king holds that the answer of Thomas to be done in despite of him and his crown". [ref.: Cal Chancery Warrants, p 188 and 241] "The lady was presumably Thomas's future wife Agnes 'by birth of the parts of Almain' said to have been the daughter of William de Grandson. cf. Complete Peerage, i. 418.

    The son of this future marriage married Elizabeth Damory, granddaughter of Joan of Acre, King Edward's daughter, who married Gilbert "the Red" de Clare. It's interesting to contemplate the various genes that come down through this marriage to [our] ancestors. [Brøderbund World Family Tree, Vol. 3, Ed. 1, Tree #6402]
