    BARONY OF LISLE (IV)

    ELIZABETH BERKELEY, according to modern doctrine suo jure BARONESS LISLE of Kingston Lisle and BARONESS TEYES, daughter and heir, succeeded to these baronies on the death of her mother in 1392. On the death of her father in 1417, when she was aged 30, she succeeded him, according to modern doctrine, as BARONESS BERKELEY. She opposed the succession of James Berkeley her cousin, heir male of her father, to the Berkeley estates. She married, before May 1399, as 1st wife, Richard (BEAUCHAMP), EARL OF WARWICK, who styled himself "Comes de Warrewyk et de Aumale, seigneur L'Isle et capitayne de Rouen." See fuller particulars of him sub WARWICK. She died s.p.m., 28 December 1422, and was buried in Kingswood Abbey, Wilts. At her death the Baronies of Lisle, Teyes and Berkeley fell, according to modern doctrine, into abeyance (k) among her 3 daughters and coheirs: (i) MARGARET; see below. (ii) ELEANOR, born September 1408, at Walthamstow in Essex, married, 1stly, Thomas, Lord ROS, 2ndly, Edmund (Beaufort), Duke of Somerset, and, 3rdly, Walter Rokesley; in the Inquisition post mortem on her father (1439) she is said to have been aged 25. (iii) ELIZABETH, born in Warwick Castle, married George (Nevill), Lord Latimer; she is said to have been aged 22 in her father's Inquisition post mortem. [Complete Peerage VIII:54-5, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    [k] In 1823 Sir John Shelley Sidney, Bart., petitioned for the determination of the abeyance in the Barony of Lisle in his favour as sole heir of the body of Margaret, the eldest da. and coh. of Elizabeth, Countess of Warwick. The petitioner's descent from Gerard, 1st Lord Lisle [1357] was through the families of Shelley, Perry, Sydney, Dudley, Grey, Talbot, Beauchamp, Berkeley and Lisle. The other coheirs were: George, Earl of Essex, Sir Henry Hunloke, Bart., and Charlotte, Baroness Ros, as coheirs of the body of Eleanor, the 2nd da.; and Hugh, Duke of Northumberland Winchcomb Henry Howard Hartley, James Knightley, Troth Grove, Villiers William Villiers, Montagu, Earl of Abingdon, Sir Francis Burdett, Bart., William Fermor, and John, Lord Rollo, as coheirs of the body of Elizabeth, the third da. The case is fully set out in Sir N. H. Nicolas's Report of the Proceedings on the Claim to the Barony of L'Isle [1829], which he published with a view to defending the modern doctrine as to barony by writ, in which, as a practising Peerage Counsel, he was much interested. The doctrine was assailed in the judgment delivered by Lord Redesdale (18 and 22 May 1826), which did not reject the petition, as has been generally supposed, on the ground of want of proof of sitting, but because in his Lordship's opinion a writ of summons and a sitting thereunder at so early a date did not in fact create an hereditary barony. On 25 May following the House of Lords resolved "that there did not appear to be sufficient ground to advise His Majesty to allow the claim of the Petitioner." In 1835 the petitioner's only son was created Baron De L'Isle and Dudley of Penshurst.
