[WARW351] Henry de Beaumont (born c.1048, younger son of [BEAM341] Count Roger & Adeline, see HARCOURT-1). He married [PERC352] Marguerite (daughter of Count Geoffrey, see CHATEAUDUN). He supported King William II against the rebels (1088), for which he was created 1st Earl of Warwick (1088). He died c. June 1119. Margaret was still living 1156.
[WARW361] Roger (1st son & heir), 2nd Earl of Warwick (1119), married [SURR433] Gundred (daughter of Earl William, see SURREY (WARENNE) EARLDOM).
Roger was at the Battle of Lincoln (2nd February 1141), and afterwards joined the cause of EMPRESS MATILDA of his free will. He served with her at the Siege of Winchester (1141), but was serving with King Stephen at Stamford (early 1142). At an unknown date he allowed Warwick Castle to be garrisoned by King Stephen's troops, and he was with King Stephen when he heard the garrison had been tricked by Henry's knights and the castle had surrendered. (It has also been said that Roger's wife had ejected the royal garrison and handed over the castle to Henry.) Although not to blame, Roger was said to be so overcome with shame and grief that he died suddenly (1153).
Afterwards, Roger's widow Gundred married 2. (c.1154) [LANK361] Lord William de Lancaster (see KENDAL (1)).
[WARW371] William (eldest son of Roger) became 3rd Earl. He married 1. [DAIV452] Margery d'Eiville (son of John d'Eiville, see DEIVILLE); then 2. (before 1175) Maud (daughter & coheir of William de Percy, see PERCY).
[WARW374] Agnes (daughter of Roger) married [CLIG441] Geoffrey I de Clinton (see CLINTON).
[WARW372] Waleran (2nd son of Roger) married 1. Margery (daughter of [HERE441] Humphrey III de Bohun); then 2. (c.1196) [HARC372] Alice du Harcourt (see HARCOURT-2, who had previously married 1. John de Limsey, Lord of Cavendish, Suffolk.) Waleran became 4th Earl of Warwick (1184) succeeding his elder brother, William, the 3rd Earl. He died before October 1204. Alice died sometime after 1212.
[WARW382] Alice (daughter of Waleran & Alice) married [MAUD381] Earl William (see WARWICK (MAUDUIT) EARLDOM below).
Meanwhile the Earldom remained in the Beaumont family. The 5th Earl was the 4th Earl’s brother [WARW381] Henry, and the 6th Earl was the 5th Earl’s son [WARW391] Sir Thomas. (The 7th Earl was a son-in-law of the 6th Earl.) Afterwards the Earldom passed to the Mauduit family.
[MAUD331] William I mauduit (which is said to mean dunce, [but more significantly it was also part of the name of one of his manors]) became Lord of Portchester, Hants, etc.
He was living 1086 at the time of the Domesday Survey, when he was tenant-in-chief in Hampshire, holding Bessete, Hartley Mauditt, Portchester, Preston Candover, Rowner and Shalden. He probably founded the castle at Portchester, on the site of the old Roman and later Saxon fortification.
William died c.1100, and was succeeded by his son Robert, who drowned in the "white Ship" disaster. The castle later passed through marriage to Robert de l'Arche, but apparently briefly returned to the Mauduit family c.1148, before being taken over by King Henry II following his succession to the throne.
