Note:   Ralph, Randolph, Ranulph --------------- Randolph or Ranulf de Neville, 1st Lord (Baron) Neville (of Raby), so created (according to later doctrine) by writ of summons to Parliament 24 June 1295; b 18 Oct 1262; found guilty 1313 of incest with his daughter, Anastasia, Lady de Faucomberge. [Burke's Peerage] ------------- Randolph de Neville, b. 18 Oct 1262, d. shortly after 18 Apr 1331, 1st Lord Neville of Raby. [Magna Charta Sureties] ------------- First Baron Neville of Raby Became heir to mothers lands Ranulph held eight adjoining lordships in the Prior of Durham. He had numerous disputes with the Bishop of Durhan concerning his responsibilities. He was convicted of incest with a daughter and made to do public penance for the crime. He was summoned to Parliament in 1295 as Lord Neville of Raby and served until his death (1331) Some say he is incorrectly called Ralph. He was one of the signers of a letter to Pope Boniface VIII (1292-1303) drawn up in a parliament convened in Lincoln by Edward I on January 23, 1301. This letter set forth the rights of the Crown to Scotland and strongly disapproved of the Pope's other actions in regard to England. Ranulphus was a champion of civil liberties, a soldier in Gascony and Scotland, yet has been much maligned. His mother was heiress to her father's estate but she does not appear to have held Ranulphus in much esteem as she settled them on her grandson, Robert. Buried at Coverham Abby. some show marriage in 1282, some show death as October 29, 1331. was in wars with France and Scotland ------------- Ranulf, or Ralph, de Nevill, being in minority at the time of his grandfather's decease [in 1282], obtained liberty of the king that his friends might plough and manage his lands and, in the 13th Edward I [1285], had livery of certain manors, part of his inheritance. Soon after this, he had a warm contest with the prior of Durham about the presentation of a stag upon St. Cuthbert's Day, in September, "which, in truth," says Dugdale, "was rather a rent than an obligation, in regard he held Raby with the eight adjoining townships by the yearly rent of �4 and a stag. For, contrary to the custom of his ancestors, he not only required that the prior of Durham, at the offering of that stag, ought to feast him and all the company he should bring, but that the prior's own menial servants should, for that time, be set aside, and his peculiar servants and officers be put in their stead. Whereupon, amongst other of his guests, he invited John de Baliol, of Barnard Castle, who refused to go with him, alleging that he never knew the Nevills to have such a privilege there; Sir William de Bromtpon, the bishop's chief justice, likewise acknowledging that he himself was the first that began the extravagant practice for being a young man and delighting in hunting, he came with the Lord Nevill at the offering of the stag and said to his companions, 'Come, let us go to the abbey and wind our horns,' and so they did. The prior father adding, that before the time of this Ranulph, none of his predecessors ever made any such claim, but when they brought the stag into the hall, they had only a breakfast, nor did the lord ever stay dinner, except he were invited." This Ranulph was summoned to parliament as a Baron, 8 June, 1294, and from that period to 18 February, 1331. His lordship was in the wars of France, temp. Edward I, and in those of Scotland in the next reign. It is said, however, that he little minded secular business but devoted the principal part of his time to conversation with the canons of Merton and Coverham, upon whom he bestowed some considerable grants. He m. 1st, Euphemia, dau. of Robert and sister of John de Clavering, and had two sons, Robert and Ralph, and two daus., Margaret and Anastasia. His lordship m. 2ndly, Margery, dau. of John, son of Marmaduke de Thweng, but had no issue. He d. in 1331, was buried on the south side of the altar at Coverham, and was s. by his only surviving son, Ralph de Nevill. [Sir Bernard Burke, Dormant, Abeyant, Forfeited, and Extinct Peerages, Burke's Peerage, Ltd., London, 1883, p. 392-3, Nevill, Barons Nevill, of Raby, Earls of Westmoreland] ------------------ RANDOLF or RANULPH (sometimes called, seemingly in error, RALPH, son and heir of Robert DE NEVILLE and Mary his wife, was born 18 October 1262, and was heir to the Neville estates on the death of his grandfather, in 1282 (having livery under writ of 11 January 1283/4), and to his mother's inheritance, April 1320. He was summoned, 15 July 1287, with horses and arms to a military council at Gloucester (before Edmund, Earl of Cornwall, in the King's absence abroad), and to attend the King at Westminster, June 1294. He was summoned to Parliament from 24 June 1295 to 18 February 1330/1, by writs directed Ranulpho (and Radulpho) de Neville, whereby he is held to have become LORD NEVILLE. For service in Scotland he was summoned 1291 and in later years; for service in Gascony, 1294, 1297 and 1324; and against the rebels under the Earl of Lancaster, 1322. His seal, as Dominus de Rahy, was attached to the letter of the Barons to the Pope, February 1300/1. In 1303 he was chief of the delegates summoned by the King to set forth the grievances of the people against the Bishop of Durham. He, or possibly his son Ralph, was commissioner of array in Durham, 1322, in the North Riding of Yorks, 1324, and in Northumberland, 1324 and 1326; in 1325 Keeper of the Peace and one of the specially appointed keepers of the coast in Northumberland, and in 1326 one of the commissioners to impress shipping in the ports of that county. He married, 1stly, Eupheme, daughter of Robert FITZROGER, LORD FITZROGER (see CLAVERING), and, 2ndly, Margery, daughter of John DE THWENG, by whom he had no issue. He died shortly after 18 April 1331. [Complete Peerage IX:497-8] -------------- BARON NEVILLE; LORD OF RABY AND MIDDLEHAM Subj: C.P. Addition: Marriage date of Ranulph de Neville and Eupheme de Clavering Date: 5/12/06 2:15:36 PM Pacific Daylight Time From: royalancestry@msn.com (Douglas Richardson) To: GEN-MEDIEVAL-L@rootsweb.com I encountered an unusual record this past week, unusual in that one of the defendants in the lawsuit was being sued by her own grandmother and her grandmother's two sisters. The parties involved are all well known individuals. The defendants were Ranulph [Fitz Robert] de Neville and his wife, Eupheme de Clavering, ancestors of the famous Nevilles of Raby. The plaintiffs were the three Quincy co-heiresses, Margery de Ferrers, Countess of Derby, Ellen, widow of Alan la Zouche, and Elizabeth, wife of Alexander Comyn, Earl of Buchan. All of these people are included in my book, Magna Carta Ancestry (2005). Ellen de Quincy, widow of Sir Alan la Zouche, is allegedly Eupheme de Clavering's maternal grandmother. I say allegedly because Eupheme's mother, Margery la Zouche, is thought to have been the daughter of Sir Alan la Zouche and his wife, Ellen de Qunicy. My research indicates that Margery la Zouche's maritagium evidently included lands at Boxworth, Cambridgeshire, which were formerly held by Sir Alan la Zouche her father. However, to date, I haven't obtained full verification of Margery la Zouche's parentage. I've copied below the abstract of the reference to the lawsuit: Source: Grant C. Simpson and James D. Galbraith, editors, Calendar of Documents relating to Scotland, 5 (Supplementary), pg. 142. "54. [Date: 1283-86?]. Letter to J[ohn] de Kirkeby, archdeacon, from H. de Walcote, his clerk. He has received the attorneys of Ranulph Fitz Robert de Nevile and Eufemia, his wife, namely John Cort and Ranulph Schoulard, in the plea before the justices of the bench between Margery de Ferrars, countess of Derby, Elena, widow of Alan la Suche, Alexander, earl of Buchan, and Elizabet', his wife, plaintiffs, and Ranulph and Eufemia, defendants, over 11-1/2 virgates in Sydeston. Asks for a writ to the justices concerning this. [SC 1/8/139]." END OF QUOTE. The authoritative Complete Peerage, 9 (1936): 497 (sub Neville) states that Ranulph de Neville "married, 1stly, Eupheme, daughter of Robert FitzRoger, Lord FitzRoger," but supplies no date for this marriage. The above lawsuit fixes the marriage of Ranulph and Eupheme as being before 1283-86?. So this record would appear to be a new addition for Complete Peerage. I might add that Ranulph de Neville is perhaps better known as having been convicted of having incest with his daughter, Anastase de Neville, wife of Walter de Faucomberge. The above lawsuit is an example of a woman generally known as Margaret, in this case Margaret de Quincy, who appears in a contemporary record as Margery. Yet another instance of Margaret de Quincy being called Margery may be found in Foster, Final Concords of Lincoln from the Feet of Fines A.D. 1244-1272 2 (Lincoln Rec. Soc. 17) (1920): 142, which records a fine dated 1256 between Ralph, Abbot of Croyland, and Margery countess of Ferrars. The property involved in the above lawsuit, Sydeston, may or may not be identical with Syderstone (or Sydesterne), Norfolk. The helpful online National Archives catalogue (http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/catalogue/search.asp) shows that the manor of Syderstone (or Sydesterne), Norfolk was granted by Alan Fitz Brian to his sister, Agnes, which conveyance is unfortunately undated. E 210/3582: Alan son of Brian to Agnes his sister : Grant of the manor of Syderstone ( Sydesterne ) : ( Norf. ) I presume Alan Fitz Brian is the individual of that name who resided at Bedale, Yorkshire and who died in 1267. This manor was afterwards held by the Kerdeston family, but how they came to possess it, I do not know. Quite possibly they are descended from Alan Fitz Brian's sister, Agnes.
