    BASKERVILLE FAMILY HISTORY

    Supplied by Brian Erwin

    Edited by Peter Baskerville Rance

    Sir Ralph's son, called RALPH (died 1148), is mentioned in Duncanís History of Herefordshire as paying a fee to the Crown for his land. He married the DAUGHTER OF LORD CLIFFORD and the following incident is related concerning them; -"Sir Ralph [or Robert] accused Lord Clifford of unjustly seizing the property of Colwyn castle, and challenged him to single combat in the churchyard of Llowes, where Lord Clifford was killed. Sir Ralph Baskerville obtained a pardon from the Pope, who was very angry that the churchyard had been desecrated. There is a curious upright stone in LIowes churchyard, which tradition points out as having been erected on the spot where Lord Clifford fell".

    Duncan, quoting from the Welsh Chronicle, gives quite another place as the scene of the duel;- "They fought near Hereford, where afterwards a white cross was erected." In the Roll of landowners liable to impose on the occasion of the marriage of King Henry 1st eldest daughter, Maud in 1109 the Rev John Duncan (1812) quotes;-"... those of Herefordshire and among them Ralph de Baskerville."

    Note: Llowes Church is in Radnorshire, Wales.
