  • ID: I09362
  • Name: Maud de HOLAND 1 2 3
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: ABT 1311 in Foxhall, Staffordshire, England
  • Note:
    He [Thomas de Swynnerton] is said to have married Maud (c), and to have died in December 1361. [Complete Peerage XII/1:587-8, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    (c) Who is described by Canon Bridgeman as daughter of Sir Robert Holand (Lord Holand) of Yoxall, Staffs, and sister of Thomas Holand, Earl of Kent. There does not seem to be any record evidence of this marriage. A Maud, widow of Thomas de Swynnerton, whose 1st husband had been Sir John le Latimer (Lord Latimer), d. 18 Nov 1360. Canon Bridgeman finds a difficulty in making this Maud the widow of Thomas de Swynnerton of Swinnerton, and it seems clear that, if she was, it must have been a 2nd marriage.

    Note: Under John Latimer, CP VII:454 note (g) states that "This Thomas [de Swynnerton who married Maud, widow of John le Latimer] was probably son of Richard, son of Roger de Swynnerton of Swynnerton."

    Note concerning the marriage of Sir Thomas de Swynnerton and Maud de Holand: the fact of this marriage has been questioned in the past as it appears to rest solely upon the statement in the Savage pedigree in the Visitation of Cheshire for 1580. Review of printed sources shows that Robert de Holand and his wife Maud la Zouche did have a daughter named Maud who was betrothed as a child to John de Mowbray. After the order for the confiscation of the estates of John's father, John (then aged about 12), his mother Aline, and Maud, who was living with them, were taken on 26 Feb 1321/2 to the Tower of London to be received by the Constable of the Tower, then Roger de Swynnerton, father of Thomas. Following the imprisonment of Maud's father and the confiscation of his estates, the marriage of John was granted on 28 Feb 1326/7 to Henry, Earl of Lancaster, whose daughter Joan was then married to John de Mowbray, then fifteen years of age. When John came of age, he received a license to grant a life interest in two Mowbray manors to Maud, then free to marry. That Maud did marry Thomas de Swynnerton depends upon the sources for the article "Ancestry of Obadiah and Mary Bruen", TAG 26:12-25 at 21 (1950). In that article Donald Lines Jacobus cited the article by Rev. Canon Bridgeman, "An Account of the Family of Swynnerton of Swynnerton and Elsewhere in the County of Stafford", (Wm. Salt Soc., vol VII pt. II, cit.), which shows that the widow of Thomas de Swynnerton was named Maud (or Matilda), and that there was formerly in Swynnerton Church an "effigy of a woman over whom is written, "Matidis de Swynnerton," and a shield giving the arms of Holand, viz: azure, semee of fleurs-de-lys argent, a lion rampant guardian argent" (Staffordshire Collection, MS no. 383, William Salt Library).
