QUATREMARS, TURVILLE, CRAFT AND CHARNELES

QUATREMARS

[QUAT451] Luke de Quatremars m. ?
. [QUAT463] Agnes de Quatremars m. [CHRN461] William Charneles

[QUAT451] Luke de Quatremars, of Overton Quatremars [Coleorton], Leics. In 1166 he held twelve carucates of land in Overton and Godsby, from Geoffrey II Ridel.

[QUAT463] Agnes (born c.1173, daughter of Luke), married [CHRN461] William de Charneles (born c.1160, see CHARNELES below).

[QUAT462] Sir Adam de Quatremars (born c.1170, younger son of Luke), succeeded his brother William to the lordship of Overton, and probably married Cecilia de Craft (see CRAFT below).

[QUAT461] William de Quatremars (son of Luke) held the lordship of Overton by 1218.

TURVILLE

[TURV411] Anschitil m. ?
. [TURV421] Roger m. ?
. . [TURV431] Geoffrey de Turville m. ?
. . . [TURV441] Geoffrey de Turville m. Gundred
. . . . [TURV451] William de Turville m. [FULB452] Isabel de Fulbrook
. . . . . [TURV462] Cecilia de Turville m. [CRAF461] Roger de Craft

[TURV411] Anschitil, a follower of Bishop Odo. He died before the Domesday Survey (1086).

[TURV421] Roger (son of Anschitil). At the Domesday Survey he held extensive estates as sub-tenant to the Bishop of Bayeux in Buckinghamshire (especially Weston, Taplow, Chalfont and Saunderton), in Kent (especially Hastingleigh and Eastling) and in Hertfordshire (especially Puttenham). He made Weston (henceforth known as Weston Turville) his caput and built a castle there. He died c.1120.

[TURV431] Geoffrey de Turville (born c.1080). He inherited his father's estates, by now, some of which as sub-tenant to Count Waleran of Meulan. When Waleran rebelled (1123) against King Henry I, he was naturally supported by Geoffrey. They were utterly defeated at the Battle of Rougemontier (1124), and at Rouen the following year the king caused Geoffrey to have his eyes gorged out for treason. He died c.1130, when his son Geoffrey paid a fine of 4. 8s. 6d. to inherit his father's lands.

[TURV441] Geoffrey de Turville, of Helmdon, Northants, married Gundred. He held the castle at Weston, but this was razed in 1174 probably because he had supported the Earl Robert of Leicester in his revolt against the king in the previous year (see LEICESTER (BEAUMONT) EARLDOM). Geoffrey was dead by 1177.

[TURV451] William de Turville the elder, of Weston Turville, Bucks, Lord of Warren Turville (1190-1217), and held nineteen knights' fees in the Honour of Leicester. He married [FULB452] Isabel de Fulbrook, and thereby acquired the Manor of Fulbrook, Warks. In 1198 William [or Walter] de Bereford granted two mills in Fulbrook (Warks) to William and his wife Isabel. They also held Woodcote in Warks. Both Fulbrook and Woodcote passed by marriage to Roger de Craft, and later Woodcote similarly passed to Henry Hubaud.

The following has been extracted from the "Victoria County History", Warwickshire, Volume 3, under Fulbrook, as it shows that Cecilia (wife of Roger de Craft) was the daughter of William de Turville senior, not junior, a point apparently missed by some researchers. I have inserted my own family references, and other comments within square brackets, as it otherwise makes complicated reading.

The manor of Fulbrook ... ... came by marriage to [TURV451] William de Turville the elder, who mortgaged it to Aaron the Jew some time before the death of that great financier in 1186. His son William the younger predeceased him and in 1217 Maud de Hastings, widow of William de Turville the younger, sued [TURV451] William the elder for the manor as her dower, but he said that it was the inheritance of his wife [FULB452] Isabel. After his death, his widow [FULB442] Isabel, in 1220, claimed the manor against Maud de Hastings [her daughter-in-law] and obtained it in 1222. The younger William left no [male] issue and his coheirs were his sisters  Cecilia, wife of Roger de Craft, Pernel, wife of Simon de Creulton (or Cuenton), who took the name of Turville, and Isabel, wife of Walhamet le Poure. Isabel died without issue, and in 1235 Simon de Turville [formerly Creulton] and [CRAF461] Roger de Craft answered for knight's fee in Fulbrook and Woodcote. This fee in 1292 was held of the Earl of Warwick by Roger de Craft and John Mace, who had also succeeded Simon at Bedworth and Chelmescote (perhaps as tenant during a minority). The Turvilles seem to have relinquished their share to [CRAF461] Roger de Craft or to his son Roger, who died c. 1250 without issue, leaving three coheirs [sisters of Roger de Craft junior]. One sister,  Isabel, had married Hugh de Herdebergh; another, [CRAF472] Beatrice, married first [CHRN471] William de Charneles and secondly Henry Hubaud; the third,  Cecilia de Quatremars, died without issue about 1268. In the Easter term of 1269 Hugh de Herdebergh (son of Isabel) sued Henry Hubaud and [CRAF472] Beatrice for his share in the estate of Cecilia [de Quatremars formerly de Craft], his own aunt and sister of [CRAF472] Beatrice [de Craft], in virtue of which he claimed to hold half the manor and advowson of Fulbrook.

[TURV462] Cecilia de Turville (daughter of William senior, sister & coheiress of William junior), married [CRAF461] Roger (see CRAFT below).

[TURV463] Pernel de Turville (daughter of William senior, sister & coheiress of William junior), married Simon de Creulton, who then took the surname Turville.

[TURV464] Isabel de Turville (daughter of William senior, sister & coheiress of William junior), married Walhamet le Poure.

[TURV461] William de Turville the younger (son of William senior), of Weston Turville, married Maud de Hastings. He predeceased his father (probably in 1217), and left no issue, his heirs being his three sisters.

[CRAF451] Roger de Craft married [INGA452] Beatrice (daughter of [INGA441] Walter [& Mary], son of [INGA431] Hingan aka Ingald).

[CRAF461] Roger de Craft married [TURV462] Cecilia (daughter of William, see TURVILLE above) by which he acquired part of the Manor of Weston Turville (Bucks), his moiety being afterwards known as Weston Butlers. He took part in the rebellion led by Robert FitzWalter (son of Walter FitzRobert, see FIRST HOUSE OF EU), against King John, for which he forfeited his lands, but was restored to them by King Henry III.

[CRAF472] Beatrice de Craft (daughter of Roger, and coheiress of her brother Roger), married 1. [CHRN471] William (see CHARNELES below, died 1240); then 2. Henry Hubaud.

[CRAF473] Isabel (daughter of Roger, and coheiress of her brother Roger), married Hugh de Herdebergh. They had a son Hugh.

[CRAF474] Cecilia (daughter of Roger, and coheiress of her brother Roger), married --- Quatremars. She died without issue (c.1268). Whilst her husband's name is not mentioned, he could have been Sir Adam de Quatremars, who died without male issue "in the latter end of the reign of king Henry III". Sir Adam de Quatremars had succeeded his brother William to the lordship. Adam's sole daughter and heir, Ada, married (in the reign of King Henry III, i.e. before 1277) Geoffrey de Maureward.

[CRAF471] Roger (son of Roger), held one knight's fee in Bilton (Warks) of Arundel (1235) being in abeyance at this time. He died 1255 without issue.
