    --------------------------------------------

    BARONY OF WINDSOR (I)

    ANDREW, or ANDREWS, WINDSOR, of Stanwell (b), Middlesex, 2nd but 1st surviving son and heir of Thomas WINDSOR (d), of the same, Constable of Windsor Castle, by Elizabeth, 1st daughter and coheir of John ANDREWS, of Baylham, Suffolk, was born 1467 and succeeded his father, 29 September 1485, being then aged 18; Bencher, Middle Temple, before 1500; Keeper of the Great Wardrobe for about 37 years, 16 July (as from 20 April last) 1506 till his death; K.B. 23 June 1509, at the Coronation of Henry VIII; Steward of Windsor, 1512; was appointed to join the retinue of Sir William Sandys for the unsuccessful expedition to Guienne in 1512; and served as Treasurer of the King's Middleward in the campaign of 1513, being made a Banneret probably after the battle of the Spurs, 16 August 1513. He was a Commissioner to survey the Navy in the Thames, 26 July-11 August 1514, and to enquire into the imparking of land in 7 counties, 28 May 1517; attended the marriage of the Princess Mary to Louis XII at Abbeville, 9 October 1514; was appointed to be present at the Field of Cloth of Gold, June, and at the meeting with the Emperor, July 1520; served again in France under the Earl of Surrey, in 1522, and under the Duke of Suffolk, August-December 1523; P.C. before 5 February 1525/6; was pricked as Sheriff of Beds and Bucks, November 1526; M.P. for Bucks in the Parliament which met on 3 November 1529. Shortly afterwards, almost certainly by patent, but possibly by writ, or even par parole, he was created LORD WINDSOR, or LORD WINDSOR (of Stanwell), being admitted to the House of Lords, 1 December 1529; and he was summoned to Parliament from 1529 to 1541/2, by writs directed Andreś Windsor de Stanwell or Andreś Windsor. He signed the letter to the Pope in favour of the King's divorce, 13 July 1530; was one of the peers summoned for the trial of Queen Anne Boleyn and Lord Rochford, 15 May 1536 (a); was appointed to attend on the King's own person with 200 men during the Northern Rebellion of 1536; and accompanied Henry VIII to Blackheath to receive Anne of Cleves, 3 January 1539/40. On 27 April 1542 he was compelled to surrender to the Crown his manor of Stanwell, with all its appurtenances in cos. Midx., Surrey, Bucks, Berks and Hants and a make-weight of £2,197 5sh. 8d., in exchange for the manor of Minchinhampton, Glos., which had belonged to Sion Monastery, and other lands of St. Peter's, Westminster, St. Alban's Abbey, the Abbey of Bordesley, Worcester, &c (d2).

    He married Elizabeth, elder sister and coheir (1475) of Edward (BLOUNT), 2nd BARON MOUNTJOY, daughter of William BLOUNT (son and heir apparent of the 1st Baron), by Margaret, daughter and eventually coheir of Sir Thomas ECHINGHAM, of Etchingham, Sussex. She, who was living, 22 February 1513/4, died before him and was buried at Hounslow, Middlesex. He died 30 March 1543 and was also buried there, aged about 76. [Complete Peerage XII/2:792-4, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    (b) The manor of Stanwell was held in 1086 by Walter FitzOther, whose eldest son, William, succeeded his father as Constable of Windsor Castle and took the name of Windsor. In this family the manor remained for nearly 500 years, till on 27 Apr 1542, Henry VIII compelled the the owner, Andrew, Lord Windsor, to surrender it to him, as stated in text above. From Walter's younger son, Gerald, descend the former Earls of Desmond, the Duke of Leinster and the Marquess of Lansdowne.

    (d) This Thomas was son and heir of Miles Windsor, who d. 30 Sep 1451 in Italy, when Thomas was said to be aged 11. He came of age before 8 Nov 1461 and m. Elizabeth Andrews before 1 Feb 1465/6, when a settlement was made of Stanwell.

    (a) He also took part in the trials of Lords Darcy, and Hussey, 15 May 1537, of Lord Montagu and the Marquess of Exeter, 2 and 3 Dec 1538, and of Lord Dacre of the South, 27 June 1541.

    (d2) For this high-handed action see Dugdale, who had the traditional story from Thomas, the 6th Lord. Apparently the King dined at Stanwell, and, on leaving, told his host "that he liked so well of that place, as that he resolv'd to have it....[and] that it must be." Lord Windsor was later shown "a Draught, ready made, of an Exchange...Whereof being contrain'd to accept, he was Commanded to quit Stanwell forthwith, though he had then laid in his Christmas-Provisions."
