  • Note:
    SIR PAULIN PEYVERE, was put in possession, in January 1226/7, of land in Chesham, Bucks, as heir of his brother Lawrence, whose wife was Emma de Pinkeny. He obtained a footing at Court, and served the King in numerous responsible positions till his death. In 1237 he was a collector in Beds of the Aid granted to the King. From 1238 to 1244 he was keeper of the Bishopric of Winchester during the vacancy; sheriff of Beds and Bucks, 1239-41. In 1242 he was attorney for the King in a case before the Council; and in 1250, as Paulin Peyvre the elder, a justice before whom a fine was levied. In 1242 he was also charged with the provision of ships for the expedition to Poitou, where he followed the King. He was the King's steward in 1245, and in 1249 "Master Paulin, the King's buyer." In that year he was fellow justice with the Bishop of Salisbury to partition the lands of William Marshal, late Earl of Pembroke.

    He married Joan, daughter and coheir of Thomas LE ESQUIER, a Justice. He died early in June 1251, in London, and was buried there (b). His widow had writ for dower 15 June. In August she obtained custody of the lands and marriage of the heirs for 500 marks. This marriage she sold for that sum to Sir John DE GREY (of Shirland), father of the first Lord Grey of Wilton, and she married Sir John, presumably as his 3rd wife, before 17 October following. She died at Layham., (Suff.), in 1256, and was buried at Woburn. [Complete Peerage X:513-4, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    (b) His heart was taken to Toddington, resting one night on the way at St. Albans Abbey, of which, as well as of Oseney Abbey and Dunstable Priory, he was a benefactor. His arms are given by Paris, who records his epitaph, as silver, on a chevron gules 3 fleurs de lys gold. He left a younger son William, to whom he gave the manor of Thorpe (Market), Norfolk.

    NOTE: I have placed Paulin as son of Roger, the 1st known Peyvre. The dates certainly allow it and he was undoubtedly an ancestor (at worst an uncle).

    CHILTON,

    Robert [de Grenville]'s tenure had ceased by 1244, when the king gave his possessions in Chilton to Paul Pever as escheat of the lands of the Normans. In 1247 Paul's holding was further augmented by a gift of land here, similarly forfeited, which had belonged to Eustace Grenville. Paul died in 1251, when his widow Joan sold the marriage of their son Paul to John de Grey, who married him to his daughter. Shortly afterwards Joan made a runaway match with John de Grey to avoid marriage with a foreigner, Stephen de Salines, the king's choice. The younger Paul Pever evidently died without issue before his mother Joan's death in 1256, when the custody of the heir, his brother John, was given to Master Peter Pever. In 1261 this John son of Paul Pever was in possession of his inheritance and died before Michaelmas 1267, when the custody of his lands was committed to the queen. Emma, the widow, survived until 1272, when their son John was still a minor. He afterwards acquired part of Marsworth Manor (q.v.), with which Chilton descended until 1429, when at the death of Thomas Pever it passed to Alice daughter of his daughter Mary by her second husband Richard Lord St. Maur and wife of William Lord Zouche. A year after her maternal grandfather's death, when his heir, her step-brother John Broughton, was twenty-two, a release was granted to her and her husband by John Pever of Chilton and other Buckinghamshire manors formerly of Thomas Pever. As no other mention of this John Pever occurs, it is possible that John Broughton had assumed his grandfather's surname. He bore his father's, however, in a suit of 1434 touching land in Cornwall.
