'Argent a saltire gules on a chief of the second three escallops or' were the the arms of Tailbois of Hurworth. This family descends from Ivo de Taillebois (Chamberlain to Robert de Vipont, Lord of Westmoreland), who married Elizabeth, widow of William Bardolf (married 1200). King John authorised their marriage in 1206. Through this marriage he held the manor of Hurworth by right of his wife. Elizabeth was eldest of the three daughters and coheirs of William son of William son of Waldef, thegn of Hepple in Coquetdale, co. Durham.
The arms of William of Lancaster, Lord of Kendal, representative and 4 x great grandson of Ivo Taillebois, Lord of Kendal were D'argent a deux barres de goules, un quartier de goules et un leopard en la quartier d'or (Glover).
The following e-mail from Dennis Theriot, which pointed out errors in my handling of Elizabeth's marriages and prompted my investigation leading to Rosie Bevan's post above, contains even more information plus a source:
I would like to complement you on your ancestor database on worldconnect.rootsweb.com. I have been using it to tie together the various branches of Taillebois/Tailboys and have found it to be excellent. There is one place where my records differ from your database. It is in the marriages of Elizabeth FitzWilliam, ID:I24087.
Your database shows her marrying 1st: Ivo Tailboys and having a son Robert; 2nd: Hugh Bardolf and having a daughter Elizabeth.
I. J. Sanders, English Baronies, p 122 has the following discussion of the descent of Hepple Northumberland. I quote:
" Waltheof, the first known lord of Hepple, d ante 1161 leaving William I who was followed, ante 1179, by William II. William II d 1198 leaving Elizabeth, Maud, and Agnes.
Elizabeth, whose inheritance of one-third of the fief increased to one-half in the thirteenth century, married, ante 1200, William Bardolf, d 1206. She married secondly, Ivo Taillebois, d 1213-19. She married, thirdly, Nicholas de Farendon, d post 1242. Elizabeth d 1256 when her son Robert I Taillebois was her heir. Robert I d 1257; Robert II, son and heir, d 1281 leaving Luke, d 1316. William, son and heir, d 1364, his son was Henry."
If this is so it is unlikely that she married a Hugh Bardolf and had a daughter Elizabeth by him. He may be a relative of her first husband and that would possibly explain the marriage of his daughter Elizabeth to her grandson.
