    BARONY OF MONTAGU (I) 1348

    EDWARD DE MONTAGU, youngest son of William De MONTAGU, 2nd LORD MONTAGU, by Elizabeth, daughter of Piers DE MONTFORT. On 11 September 1321 Sir Thomas de Furnivalle [Lord Furnivalle], his stepfather, acknowledged a debt to him of £300. On 19 March 1336/7, having been made a knight, he was granted £100 per annum from the exchequer for his maintenance. In September 1338 he was staying beyond seas on the King's service, and in December received his wife Alice's pourparty of her inheritance in England. In October 1341 he had a grant of wool to the valiie of £200 on account of his wages in the King's service and arrears of his annuity. He was summoned 25 February 1341/2 to a Great Council, and to others later. In March 1344/5 he was pardoned the £50 relief due in respect to his wife's inheritance. In April 1346 he granted the advowson of Redenhall, Norfolk, to Bungay Priory. He fought, as a banneret, at Crécy, 26 August 1346, with a retinue of 9 knights, 15 esquires, and 20 archers. On 4 September 1346 he had a general pardon on account his good service in the French war. In September 1348 he and Alice his wife received her pourparty of the lands of her father in Ireland, and it is doubtless in this connection that in 1351,1354, and 1355 he nominated attorneys there. He was summoned to Parliament from 20 November 1348 to 20 November 1360, by writs directed Edwardo de Monte Acuto, whereby he is held to have become LORD MONTAGU. In August 1354 he and other magnates joined with the Prince of Wales in appointing proxies to treat with France. In August 1356 he was one of the custodians of the coast of Norfolk, in 1358 a commissioner at Great Yarmouth, and in 1360 a commissioner of array.

    He married, 1stly, before 29 August 1338, Alice, younger daughter and coheir of Thomas of Brotherton, EARL OF NORFOLK and EARL MARSHAL, son of Edward I. The King on 3 February 1348/9 took his homage for her lands. She was living 14 November 1351, but died before 30 January 1351/2 (c). He married, 2ndly, Joan, whose parentage is not known. He died 14 July 1361. His widow was living in 1379. [Complete Peerage IX:84-5, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    (c) Her death was the result of an assault, one of many crimes of violence committed at Bungay, of which her husband and a band of his followers were indicted.

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

    (g) Edward, 1st Lord Montagu, by his 1st wife Alice, had a son Edward, who with his sisters, Audrey and Elizabeth, must have been of reasonable age in June 1349, when all three had induits to choose confessors. Edward and Audrey d. before Feb 1358/9, when the heirs of Alice were found to be Elizabeth, wife of Walter de Ufford, aged 15; Maud, aged 13; and Joan, wife of William de Ufford, aged 11. Elizabeth would appear to have been married at her mother's death, because the marriage of only two of Alice's daughters was said to belong to the King; and they were sent in Nov 1351 to their grandmother Elizabeth, Lady Furnivalle. When the inquisitions were taken after the deaths of the 1st and 2nd Lords Montagu (July, Aug, and Nov 1361), Joan abovesaid, then aged 12, was heir of her mother, and the only surviving heir of the first marriage of her father, and (a second) Aubrey, aged 2 and more, of his second marriage. Joan proved her age in Feb 1362/3, she having been born and baptized at Bungay, Suffolk, 2 Feb 1348/9. Joan dsps. before 27 June 1376, when, according to modern doctrine, the barony emerged from abeyance and vested in her half-sister Audrey. Her wardship and marriage were granted, Jan 1366/7, to Alan Palmer, the King's sergeant. Audrey's plea of being under age in 1375 and again in 1379, though allowed, cannot have been founded on fact. She m. Sir Hugh de Strelley, brother and heir of Philip de Strelley, and son of William de Strelley, who was son and heir of Hugh de Strelley, of Hazelbadge, co. Derby. Sir Hugh held, in her right, the manor of Redenhall, Norfolk. He d. Aug 1390, leaving a son and heir, John, aged 10 or 11, and his wife Audrey surviving him. As Sir John de Strauley (Strelley) this son, who was living in 1412, appears to have been succeeded by a brother Hugh, who sold Hazelbadge in 1420. He was living 1424. Whether he left issue has not been ascertained. [Complete Peerage IX:85-6 note (g)]
