[Dave Utz <UTZ@aol.com] ---------------------------------- COUNTESS OF WESTMORELAND Married: 3 FEB 1396 in Chateau de Beaufort, Meuse-et-Loire, France Joan Beaufort - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Born in about 1379, Joan Beaufort, Countess of Westmoreland, was the fourth child (and only daughter) of John of Gaunt and his mistress Katherine Swynford. Joan married Robert Ferrers, 2nd Baron Ferrers of Wemme, and they had two daughters before he died. Along with her three brothers, Joan was supposedly declared legitimate by their cousin Richard II of England in 1390, but for some reason their father secured another such declaration from Parliament in January 1397. Perhaps the reason was that on 3 February 1397, when she was 18, Joan married Ralph Neville, 1st Earl of Westmoreland, who had also been married once before. They had at least ten children, one of whom was Cecily Neville (1415 - 1495) ("Proud Cis"), who married Richard Plantagenet, Duke of York (1411 - 1460), and two of their children became Edward IV of England and Richard III of England. Joan died on 13 November 1440 and was entombed next to her mother in the sanctuary of Lincoln Cathedral. Joan's is the smaller of the two tombs; both were decorated with brass plates -- full-length representations of them on the tops, and small shields bearing coats of arms around the sides -- but those were damaged or destroyed in 1644 during the English Civil War. A 1640 drawing of them survives, showing what the tombs looked like when they were intact, and side-by-side instead of end-to-end, as they are now." Joan Beaufort, d. Howden 13 Nov 1440, widow of Robert Ferrers, daughter of John, Duke of Lancaster and Katharine (Roet) Swynford. [Magna Charta Sureties] ------------------------------------ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ch%C3%A2teau_de_Beaufort Some people have asked this interesting question "Where did the name come from?" and were these children of John of Gaunt and Katherine Swynford-Roet named after that chateau in Anjou? My first look was in The Plantagenet Encyclopedia, general editor Elizabeth Hallam, page 26. There is an entry for John Beaufort 1373?-1410 "He was the first to bear the name Beaufort, which John chose for his children by Katherine". In the Complete Peerage under Somerset, and there it is. Volume XII/1 page 39 hidden in a footnote. "The name Beaufort came (Walsingham, 'Ypodigma' Rolls Ser., p.374) from their father's castle in CHAMPAGNE (not Anjou), which devolved on him (John of Gaunt) through his 1st wife, Blanche of Lancaster, who descended from Blanche of Artois. I suppose, never mind where the castle is, it may have given its name to the four children but that doesn't mean to say that they were born there. -- Leo van de Pas The 4 children of John of Gaunt, by his mistress, Catherine [Roet] Swynford, whom Gaunt later married as his 3rd wife, at which time the 4 children were legitimized, taking the surname Beaufort. After John of Gaunt's death, however, the four Beauforts were barred from succession by their half- brother King Henry JOAN BEAUFORT Countess of Westmorland Joan Beaufort, Countess of Westmorland (c. 1379 � 13 November 1440), was the fourth child (and only daughter) of John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster and his mistress Katherine Swynford. She was born at the Ch�ateau de Beaufort in Champagne, France (from where the Beaufort children derive their surname). In 1391, at the age of twelve, Joan married Robert Ferrers, 3rd Baron Ferrers of Wemme, and they had two daughters before he died about 1395. Along with her three brothers, Joan had been privately declared legitimate by their cousin Richard II of England in 1390, but for various reasons their father secured another such declaration from Parliament in January 1397. Joan was already an adult when she was legitimized by the marriage of her mother and father with papal approval. The Beauforts were later barred from inheriting the throne by a clause inserted into the legitimation act by their half-brother, Henry IV of England. Soon after this declaration, on 3 February 1397, when she was eighteen, Joan married Ralph de Neville, 1st Earl of Westmorland, who had also been married once before. When Ralph de Neville died in 1425, his lands and titles should, by law of rights, have passed on to his eldest surviving son from his first marriage, another Ralph de Neville. Instead, while the title of Earl of Westmorland and several manors were passed to Ralph, the bulk of his rich estate went to his wife, Joan Beaufort. Although this may have been done to ensure that his widow was well provided for; by doing this, Ralph essentially split his family into two, and the result was years of bitter conflict between Joan and her stepchildren, who fiercely contested her acquisition of their father's lands. Joan however, with her royal blood and connections, was far too powerful to be called to account, and the senior branch of the Nevilles received little redress for their grievances. Inevitably, when Joan died, the lands would be inherited by her own children. Joan died on 13 November 1440 at Howden in Yorkshire. Rather than be buried with her husband Ralph (who was buried with his first wife) she was entombed next to her mother in the magnificent sanctuary of Lincoln Cathedral. Joan's is the smaller of the two tombs; both were decorated with brass plates � full-length representations of them on the tops, and small shields bearing coats of arms around the sides � but those were damaged or destroyed in 1644 during the English Civil War. A 1640 drawing of them survives, showing what the tombs looked like when they were intact, and side-by-side instead of end-to-end, as they are now. Joan Beaufort was the grandmother of Edward IV of England and Richard III of England, whom Henry VII defeated to take the throne. (Henry then married Elizabeth of York, daughter of Edward IV, and their son became Henry VIII of England). She was also the grandmother of Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick 'the Kingmaker'. Children of Joan Beaufort and Ralph Neville: They had fourteen children: * Lady Katherine Neville, married first on January 12, 1411 John Mowbray, 2nd Duke of Norfolk; married second Sir Thomas Strangways; married third John Beaumont, 1st Viscount Beaumont; married fourth Sir John Woodville (d. August 12, 1469). * Lady Eleanor Neville (d. 1472), married first Richard le Despencer, 4th Baron Burghersh, married second Henry Percy, 2nd Earl of Northumberland * Richard Neville, 5th Earl of Salisbury (1400� 1460) * Robert Neville (d. 1457), Bishop of Durham * William Neville, 1st Earl of Kent (d. 1463) * Edward Nevill, 3rd Baron Bergavenny (d. 1476) * Anne Neville (?1411� 1480), married Humphrey Stafford, 1st Duke of Buckingham * Cecily Neville (1415� 1495) ("Proud Cis"), married Richard, 3rd Duke of York and mothered Kings Edward IV of England and Richard III of England * George Neville, 1st Baron Latymer (d. 1469) * John Neville, died young * Cuthbert Neville, died young * Thomas Neville, died young * Henry Neville, died young * Joan Neville, a nun Source: Wikipedi *** Countess of Westmorland She was the fourth child (and only daughter) of John of Gaunt and his mistress Katherine Swynford.
