  • ID: I34159
  • Name: Mary daughter John de PEQIGNY , of Amiens 1
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: ABT 1270 in Amiens, Somme, Picardy, France
  • Death: BEF 11 APR 1333 in Ludgershall, Pewsey, Wiltshire, England 2
  • Note:
    He [Amauri de St. Amand] married Mary (----); and died s.p. 29 July 1310, when any Barony which may be supposed to have been created by the writ of 1299 became extinct. His widow married, 2ndly, John PEYVRE (LORD PEYVRE], and died shortly before 11 April 1333. [Complete Peerage XI:297-8, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    (k) In July he was given custody of Marlborough Castle--for which the manor of Ludgershall, Wilts, was afterwards substituted--so that his wife Mary might dwell there during his absence.


    He [John Peyvre] married, 2ndly, by 26 May 1312, Mary, widow of Amaury DE ST. AMAND, 1st LORD ST. AMAND, by whom he had no issue. He died 11 December 1315. His widow, who probably entertained Edward III at Toddington in October 1329, died shortly before 11 April 1333. [Complete Peerage X:515, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]


    NOTE: The following, copied from the website Some corrections and additions to the Complete Peerage (, indicates a possible identity of Amauri's wife Mary:

    J. C. Parsons [The Court and Household of Eleanor of Castile in 1290 (Toronto, 1977), pp. 50-52] suggested that Mary was a daughter of John de Pécqigny, vidame of Amiens (d. 1304). The marriage took place at Leeds Castle on 21 August 1289 [ibid, p. 52, citing P.R.O. E 101/352/13, m. 2].

    The basis of the identification is that Mary is one of a group of four "damsels" of the chamber who appear frequently throughout Queen Eleanor's wardrobe account book for 1289-90 and in one entry are described as kinswomen of the queen. Mary is usually described named as St Amand, but twice appears as domicella de Pynkeny, suggesting that she was a member of the Pécqigny family who were the queen's distant cousins (through their descent from an aunt of her maternal grandmother). Parsons also notes that Mary, who arrived at court on 10 August 1289, was apparently accompanied by John de Pécqigny, who did not leave until February 1289/90 [citing P.R.O. E 101/352/21, m. 1]. (He also notes that the marriage of Marie de Pécqigny to the "seigneur de St.-Amand" is stated by F. Darsy, Pécqigny et ses Seigneurs, Vidames d'Amiens (Abbeville, 1860), pp. 753-755.)
