a. Note:   EARL OF CHESTER RESEARCH NOTES: 3rd Earl of Chester, of Earldom cr 1121 [Ref: CP III p167] Earl of Chester [Ref: Paget HRHCharles p179, CP IV p196, Weis AR7 #125, Redlich CharlemagneDesc p129] Vicomte d'Avranches in Normandy [Ref: Weis AR7 #125, Redlich CharlemagneDesc p129] inherited Barony of Chester from father [Ref: Sanders Baronies p32] 1165: answered for 20 knight's fees of Thorold, showing an interest in Bolingbroke; however the main part of the lordship passed William de Roumare, son of Lucy by her second husband [Ref: Sanders Baronies p18(2)] -------------------------- Hugh II, 5th Earl of Chester, surnamed Keveliock or Cyveliok, because he was born 1147 at Kevelioc, Co. Merioneth, Wales. He succeeded his father in the Earldom of Chester. This nobleman joined in the rebellion with Robert, Earl of Leicester, and the King of Scots against King Henry II, and in support of that monarch's son, Prince Henry's pretentions to the crown. In which proceeding he was taken prisoner with the Earl of Leicester at Almwick, but obtained his freedom soon afterwards, upon the reconciliation of the king with the young prince. During troublesome times following his lands were taken from him, but they were restored when public tranquility was restored. He died at Leeks, Co. Stafford, in 1181, aged about 34. His lordship married Bertred, daughter of Simon de Montfort, Earl of Evereaux in Normandy. They were married 1169 when Bertred was just 14 years old. She died in 1227, aged about 71. They had a son, Randle III, who succeeded his father as Earl of Chester, but he died sine prole 1232. He had the Earldom of Lincoln from his great-grandmother Lucia, and he resigned this Earldom to his sister Hawise about 1230-1. She was the widow of Robert de Quincey, and their daughter Margaret married John de Lacy, to whom the Earldom of Lincoln was confirmed Nov. 22, 1232. He was Surety for Magna Charta and his daughter Maud married Richard de Clare, son of Gilbert son of Richard de Clare, last two Sureties, and from whom you descend through Robert Abell and John Whitney. Beside Randle III and Hawise, Hugh and Bertred had Mabil, married Hugh de Albini, died sine prole.He was the Earl of Chester. Also known as Hugh le Meschin; Earl of Chester, Vicomte d'Avranches in Normandy. He joined in the rebellion against King Henry II, was taken prisoner at Alnwick on July 13, 1174, and deprived of his Earldom. Though he was again in rebellion both in England and Normandy, his Earldom was restored January 1177 (Complete Peerage, Vol III:167).He was the Earl of Chester and Lincoln, the Viscount of Avranches, taken prisoner at Alnwick, 12 jul 1174. He was the Earl of Chester. Hugh d. 1181, called Hugh of Cyveiliog, palatine Earl of Chester, was the son of Ranulf II, earl of Chester [q.v.], and of his wife Matilda, daughter of Earl Robert of Gloucester, the illegitimate son of Henry I. He is sometimes called Hugh of Cyveiliog, because, according to a late writer, he was born in that district of Wales (POWEL, Hist. of Cambria, p. 295). His father died on 16 Dec. 1153, whereupon, being probably still under age, he succeeded to his possessions on both sides of the Channel. These included the hereditary viscounties of Avranches and Bayeux. Hugh was present at the council of Clarendon in January 1164 which drew up the assize of Clarendon (STUBBS, Select Charters, p. 138). In 1171 he was in Normandy (EYTON, Itinerary of Henry II, p. 158). Hugh joined the great feudal revolt against Henry II in 1173. Aided by Ralph of Fougres, he utilised his great influence on the north-eastern marches of Brittany to excite the Bretons to revolt. Henry II despatched an army of Brabant mercenaries against them. The rebels were defeated in a battle, and on 20 August were shut up in the castle of Dol, which they had captured by fraud not long before. On 23 Aug. Henry II arrived to conduct the siege in person (HOVEDEN, ii. 51). Hugh and his comrades had no provisions (JORDAN FANTOSME in HOWLETT, Chron. of Stephen, Henry II, and Richard I, iii. 221). They were therefore forced to surrender on 26 August on a promise that their lives and limbs would be saved (W. NEWBURGH in HOWLETT, i. 176). Fourscore knights surrendered with them (DICETO, i. 378). Hugh was treated very leniently by Henry, and was confined at Falaise, whither the Earl and Countess of Leicester were also soon brought as prisoners. When Henry II returned to England, he took the two earls with him. They were conveyed from Barfleur to Southampton on 8 July 1174. Hugh was probably afterwards imprisoned at Devizes (EYTON, p. 180). On 8 Aug., however, he was taken back from Portsmouth to Barfleur, when Henry II went back to Normandy. He was now imprisoned at Caen, whence he was removed to Falaise. He was admitted to terms with Henry before the general peace, and witnessed the peace of Falaise on 11 Oct. (Federa, i. 31). Hugh seems to have remained some time longer without complete restoration. At last, at the council of Northampton on 13 Jan. 1177, he received grant of the lands on both sides of the sea which he had held fifteen days before the war broke out (BENEDICTUS, i. 135; HOVEDEN, ii. 118). In March he witnessed the Spanish award. In May, at the council at Windsor, Henry II restored him his castles, and required him to go to Ireland, along with William Fitzaldhelm [q.v.] and others, to prepare the way for the king's son John (BENEDICTUS, i. 161). But no great grants of Irish land were conferred on him, and he took no prominent part in the Irish campaigns. He died at Leek in Staffordshire on 30 June 1181 (ib. i. 277; Monasticon, iii. 218; ORMEROD, Cheshire, i. 29). He was buried next his father on the south side of the chapter-house of St. Werburgh's, Chester, now the cathedral. Hugh's liberality to the church was not so great as that of his predecessors. He granted some lands in Wirral to St. Werburgh's, and four charters of his, to Stanlaw, St. Mary's, Coventry, the nuns of Bullington and Greenfield, are printed by Ormerod (i. 27). He also confirmed his mother's grants to her foundation of Austin Canons at Calke, Derbyshire, and those of his father to his convent of the Benedictine nuns of St. Mary's, Chester (Monasticon, vi. 598, iv. 314). In 1171 he had confirmed the grants of Ranulf to the abbey of St. Stephen's in the diocese of Bayeux (EYTON, p. 158). More substantial were his grants of Bettesford Church to Trentham Priory, and of Combe in Gloucestershire to the abbey of Bordesley, Warwickshire (Monasticon, vi. 397, v. 407). Hugh married before 1171 Bertrada, the daughter of Simon III, surnamed the Bald, count of Evreux and Montfort. He was therefore brother-in-law to Simon of Montfort, the conqueror of the Albigenses, and uncle of the Earl of Leicester. His only legitimate son, Ranulf III, succeeded him as Earl of Chester [see Blundevill, Randulf de]. He also left four daughters by his wife, who became, on their brother's death, coheiresses of the Chester earldom. They were: (1) Maud, who married David, earl of Huntingdon, and became the mother of John the Scot, earl of Chester from 1232 to 1237, on whose death the line of Hugh of Avranches became extinct; (2) Mabel, who married William of Albini, Earl of Arundel (d. 1221) [q.v.]; (3) Agnes, the wife of William, Earl Ferrers of Derby; and (4) Hawise, who married Robert de Quincy, son of Saer de Quincy, earl of Winchester. Hugh was also the father of several bastards, including Pagan, lord of Milton; Roger; Amice, who married Ralph Mainwaring, justice of Chester; and another daughter who married R. Bacon, the founder of Roucester (ORMEROD, i. 28). A great controversy was carried on between Sir Peter Leycester and Sir Thomas Mainwaring, Amice's reputed descendant, as to whether that lady was legitimate or not. Fifteen pamphlets and small treatises on the subject, published between 1673 and 1679, were reprinted in the publications of the Chetham Society, vols. lxxiii. lxxix. and lxxx. Mainwaring was the champion of her legitimacy, which Leycester had denied in his Historical Antiquities. Dugdale believed that Amice was the daughter of a former wife of Hugh, of whose existence, however, there is no record. A fine seal of Earl Hugh's is engraved in Ormerod's Cheshire, i. 32.

Contributor 1 BIRT 2 DATE 1147 2 PLAC Keveliock, Merionethshire, Wales ------------------- Hugh de Kevelioc, 3rd Earl of Chester (1147 ? June 30, 1181) was the son of Ranulph de Gernon, 2nd Earl of Chester and Maud of Gloucester, daughter of Robert, 1st Earl of Gloucester (otherwise known as Robert de Caen, the illegitimate son of Henry I of England, making her Henry's granddaughter). He is thought by some to have taken his name from Kevelioc in Monmouth as his birthplace, but others think that instead he was born in, and took the name of, Cyfeiliog in Merionethshire or Meirionydd, Wales. He was underage when his father's death in 1153 made him heir to his family's estates on both sides of the channel. He joined the baronial Revolt of 1173-1174 against King Henry II of England, and was influential in convincing the Bretons to revolt. After being captured and imprisoned after the Battle of Alnwick, he finally got his estates restored in 1177, and served in King Henry's Irish campaigns. In 1169 he married Bertrade de Montfort of Evreux, daughter of Simon III de Montfort. She was the cousin of King Henry, who gave her away in marriage. (Wikipedia) Hugh de Cyvelioc, Earl of Chester, married Bertrude, daughter of Simon de Montfort, Earl of Leicester and Evereaux. They had one son, Ranulph, who died sine prole 1232, and 5 daughters, and you are descended from all five of them either through John Whitney or Robert Abell. The 1st daughter, Matilda or Maud, married David, Earl of Huntingdon, of whom further. 2nd Hawise above married Robert de Quincey. 3rd Agnes married William Ferrers, from whom both John Whitney and Robert Abell come. 4th Mabill married William de Albini, from whom John Whitney comes through Isabel de Albini, who married John FitzAlan. 5th Amicia married Ralph Mainwaring, to Robert Abell. She is the one who is claimed to have been an illegitimate daughter. (Kin of Mellcene Thurman Smith, page 271) HUGH II, surnamed Keveliok because he was born in the commote or province of Cyveliok situate in that part of Wales anciently called Powys; succeeded his father 1153; performed many valiant actions, but for some time was in rebellion against Henry II by whom he was overcome and obliged to submit to the King who, however, restored to him all his lands; died at Leeke, in Staffordshire, and was buried at Chester 1181, 27 Henry II; his wife was Bertred (or Bertrade), daughter of Simon, Earl of Evereux, in Normandy.
