    BARONY OF GREY OF ROTHERFIELD (II)

    SIR JOHN (DE GREY), LORD GREY (of Rotherfield), son and heir by 1st wife (f), had letters of protection, 3 August 1344, On going beyond seas with William (de Clinton), Earl of Huntingdon. He was in the Crécy campaign in the 1st (Prince of Wales') Division. The King took his homage and he had livery (co. Northampton) of his inheritance, saving to Avice, late wife of Sir John de Grey, reasonable dower. He was summoned to Parliament from 20 November 1360 to 4 October 1373, by writs directed Johanni de Grey or Johanni Grey de Rotherfeld.

    He married (j) Maud, possibly daughter of Sir Bartholomew DE BURGHERSH, the elder, LORD BURGHERSH (k). He died 4 June 1375. Will dated on Sunday next after the feast of the Ascension 1375 was proved in the Chapel of the Bishop of Lincoln's manor of Woburn 16 June 1375, and administration granted to Brian de Grey and Robert de Grey, the testator's natural sons, power being reserved to the other executors. He desired burial in the monastery of St. James next Northampton, and left all his goods to Maud his wife and to his sons "ut ipsi ordinent et disponant ut melius viderint pro anima mea." His widow, who had as dower a moiety of the manor of Somerton and of the advowson of the church there and the manor of Duston, died 23 January 1386/7. [Complete Peerage VI:147-8, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    (f) Aged 40 and more or 30 and more according to the various inquistions taken at his father's death.

    (j) There may have been a 1st wife, mother of the eldest son, John de Grey. Maud was certainly mother of Bartholomew, Robert and Richard de Grey.

    (k) Sir Bartholomew de Burghersh petitioned (Papal Reg., Kal Aug 1366) on behalf of Sir John de Grey of Rotherfield and Maud his wife and others for plenary remission at the hour of death. The unusual name in the Grey family of Bartholomew bestowed on the second son seems to strengthen the suggestion. Maud de Grey was probably sister of the petitioner.
