    GEOFFREY (DE MANDEVILLE) (a), EARL OF ESSEX, son and heir, by 1st wife. On 3 November 1213 he was ordered to deliver up the Tower of London, with the prisoners and arms therein, to W., Archdeacon of Huntingdon. The next day, 4 November, the King took his homage and he had livery of his inheritaiice. In February 1213/4, Geoffrey de Say made an unsuccessful attempt to recover from him the Mandeville estates which the former had held for a short time in 1190.

    He married, 1stly, Maud, 1st daughter of Robert FITZ WAUTER, of Woodham Walter, Essex, by his 1st wife (to whom she was coheir), Gunnor, daughter and heir of Robert DE VALOINES, of Bennington, Sacomb, and Hertingfordbury, Herts, Higham, Essex, Great Fakenham and Bacton, Suffolk, &c. She died s.p. and was buried in Dunmow Priory. He married, 2ndly, between 16 and 26 January 1213/4, Isabel, COUNTESS OF GLOUCESTER (the divorced wife of KING JOHN), 3rd daughter and coheir of William, EARL OF GLOUCESTER, by Hawise, da. of Robert, EARL OF LEICESTFR. For this marriage, which appears to have been forced upon him, and by which he becarne EARL OF GLOUCESTER, he had to pay or rather he agreed to pay a ruinous fine of 20,000 marks. He had livery of the honour of Glamorgan, 26 January 1213/4, and on 28 January of all the other lands, &c. (then in the King's hand), of the Countess his wife, except the castle and forest of Bristol. The first instalment of the fine, 5,000 marks, was due ante passagium domini Regis in Pictav' anno xv, but it was not paid. Wherefore, on Sunday before Lent, 9 February 1213/4, the King, then at Yarmouth on the point of embarkation, ordered the sheriffs to resume into the King's hand any of the lands belonging to the Countess whereof they had given seizin to Geoffrey, and to hold them till he had satisfied the King concerning the fine. On 9 and 10 August following, having so satisfied the King, he had livery of the honour of Gloucester. In April 1215 he joined the confederate Barons in arms against the King. On 23 June 1215 he had livery of the advowsons of abbeys and religious houses which the Earls of Gloucester had founded, and of all the liberties pertaining to the honour of Gloucester that Earl William, father of the Countess Isabel, had held. When the Barons parcelled out the government of the country in August or September 1215, he undertook the administration of Essex. He and his brother, William were among those excommunicated by the Pope, 16 December 1215, and his lands were given to Savary de Mauleon on or before 20 December following. He died s.p., 23 February 1215/6, being mortally wounded at a tournament in London, and was buried in Trinity Priory within Aldgate. The honour of Gloucester remained in the King's hand, and on 13 August 1217 the sheriffs of nine counties were ordered to give seizin to Hubert de Burgh, Justiciar or England, of all the lands of Isabel, Countess of Gloucester, which the King had committed to his custody, and Faukes de Breauté was ordered to give him seizin of the manor of Walden, which the Countess had held in dower: but on 17 September following, the Countess having returned to her allegiance, the sheriffs were ordered to give her seizin of the lands which she had held ante guerram motam inter dominum J. Regem patrem nostrum et barones Anglie, and R. de Clifford was ordered to restore to her her residence (domum) and all her lands in Henley. She married (possibly before the date of these writs, but if so, secretly), 3rdly, as 2nd wife, the said Hubert (DE BURGH), EARL OF KENT. She died s.p., 14 October 1217, and was buried in Canterbury Cathedral Church. He died at his manor of banstead, Surrey, 12 may 1243, and was buried in the Church of the Black Friars in Holborn. [Complete Peerage V:126-30, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    [a] The children of Beatrice de Say, Countess of Essex, assumed this surname. The arms of this Geoffrey de Mandeville were, Quarterly Or and GuIes, being the same as those of Say: a seal of Geoffrey de Say, who died in 1230, bears a shield quarterly, with the legend, " + SIGILL' : GALFRIDI : DE : MAVNDEVIL'."


    Geoffrey de Mandeville (which surname he assumed), who, in the 15th King John (1314-15), had livery of the lands of his inheritance and the same year, bearing the title of Earl of Essex, the king gave him to wife, Isabel, Countess of Gloucester, 3rd dau. and co-heir of William, Earl of Gloucester, and was, in her right, Earl of Gloucester, and was so styled in the convention with King John, 1215 (which Isabel had first been m. to King John himself, but repudiated on account of consanguinity). This nobleman afterwards distinguished himself amongst the barons who rebelled again the tyrannical power of John, and was one of the twenty-five lords chosen to enforce the observance of Magna Carta, about which period, attending a tournament at London, he received a wound from a lance, which proved mortal. His lordship d. in 1216, and leaving no children, was s. by his brother, William.
