    EARLDOM OF BEDFORD (I) 1138

    HUGH DE MEULAN, styled also "le Pauvre", called "Hugo Pauper," 3rd son of Robert, Count of Meulan in France, and 1st EARL OF LEICESTER, by Elizabeth, daughter of Hugh, Count of Vermandois, was knighted before 1138, and is alleged to have been created EARL OF BEDFORD by King Stephen in 1138, who put him in possession of the Castle and Barony of Bedford, ejecting the sons of Robert Beauchamp, whose cousin, the daughter and heir of Sir Simon BEAUCHAMP, had been granted in marriage to the said Hugh. He appears, however, to have lapsed into poverty and even to have been degraded from his peerage three or four years afterwards, and at his death the title in all probability, became extinct. [Complete Peerage II:68-9, XIV:79, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]
