    BARONY OF WILLOUGHBY OF ERESBY (IX) 1470-1474?

    BARONY OF WELLES (IX) 1470-1474?

    JOAN DE WELLES, de jure suo jure (according to modern doctrine) BARONESS WELLES AND WILLOUGHBY, sister of the whole blood and heir, married, as his 1st wife, Sir Richard HASTINGS, younger brother of William, 1st LORD HASTINGS, so created 1461. She and her husband had licence, 1 June 1470, to enter freely into all the lands late of Robert, Lord Willoughby, and his daughter Joan, which on the death of her father and brother, both tenants-in-chief, should descend to her. She was living, 1472/3, but died s.p. before, probably shortly before, the Act of Attainder, January-March 1474/5. On her death the right to the Barony of Welles (which was subject to attainder, 1475-85, devolved on her paternal uncle and heir, John Welles, but that to the Barony of Willoughby (also subject to attainder, 1475-85) passed to her maternal 2nd cousin, Sir Christopher Willoughby. See that title. Her husband who, under the Act of Attainder, had been granted the bulk of the forfeited Welles and Willoughby lands, was summoned to Parliament from 15 November 1482 to 9 December 1483, by writs directed Ricardo Hastyng de Wellys, whereby he is held to have become LORD HASTINGS (of Welles), or LORD WELLES. In the Parliament of 1485-86 the attainders of Richard and Robert 7th and 8th Lords Welles and Willoughby, were reversed, as was also the attainder of John Welles, brother of the half-blood of the said Richard and heir, from (1474?), of Lionel, 6th Lord Welles, whereupon the said John became Lord Welles. Sir Richard Hastings thereafter was no longer recognized as Lord Welles but, it being enacted at the same time that he should have and retain for life the lands which were sometime of Robert, 6th Lord Willoughby, he was styled, and styled himself, LORD WILLOUGHBY. He died s.p. and was buried September 1503 in the Grey Friars, London. [Complete Peerage XII/2:447-8]
