  • Note:
    Owen ap Gruffydd ap Gwenwynwyn alias de la Pole (ie. of Welshpool); allegedly surrendered the principality of Powis to Edward I in the late 13th century, though the principality had already been the subject of constant fighting and dispute between the Kings of England and Llywelyn the Last, Prince of Wales, receiving from Edward I in return the same area as a free Baron of England (ie. as Lord of a feudal barony). [Burke's Peerage]


    Observations.- The Welsh principality of Powis is said to have been established as a feudal barony by surrender to Edward I, in the Parliament at Shrewsbury, 1283, by Owen ap Griffith ap Gwenwynwyn, who received it again from the King "sub nomine et tenura liberi Baronagii AngliŠ, resignando Domino Regi heredibus suis et CoronŠ AngliŠ nomen et circulum principatus." This date should be accepted with reserve, because Owen did not succeed his father in possession till 1286; while the allegiance of Powis had varied between Llewelyn arid Edward, 1277-83, according to the fortune of war. The date 1286 is given below as that of the succession of the first lord of Powis, from whose time allegiance to England remained undisturbed.

    FEUDAL BARONY OF POWIS (I) 1286 (CP does not call it a Barony, but treats it similarly)

    OWEN AP GRIFFITH AP GWENWYNWYN (otherwise DE LA POLE, i.e. of [Welsh]pool), son and heir of the said Griffith, by Hawise, daughter of John LE STRANGE, of Ness and Chesswardine, Salop, with his father conspired with David, brother of Llewelyn, Prince of North Wales, 1276.

    He married Joan, said to have been daughter of Sir Robert CORBET, of Wattlesburgh and Moreton Corbet, by a daughter of John LE STRANGE. He died shortly before 15 October 1293. His widow, who had order for assignment of dower 20 January 1293/4, married between 18 August 1295 and 22 November 1298, Sir Roger TRUMWYNE, sheriff of Salop and Staffs, 1307-08 and 1316-18, knight of the shire, Staffs, 1312, 1313. He died about 1333; and she some time before Michaelmas 1348. [Complete Peerage X:641, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]
