  Research Notes:

The Chronicle of Croxden records the death “XII Kal Nov” 1278 [sic] of “dominus Johannes de Verdun validus patronus domus hujus” and the succession of “dominus Theobaldus filius eius”. He was summoned to Parliament in 1295 whereby he is held to have become Lord Verdun.

The Chronicle of Croxden records the death “die dominica in festo Bartholomei apostoli apud Alveton” 1309 of “dominus T. de Verdun patronus noster” and his burial “apud Crokesden...III Id Oct”. Inquisitions following a writ dated 28 Aug "3 Edw II" after the death of "Theobald de Verdun alias de Verdoun, de Verdun, the elder” name “Theobald his son aged 28 [...30...24 and more...22 and more...aged 31 at the feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Mary last] is his next heir”, and noting “Byseley” Gloucestershire “held in free marriage of the earl of Hereford”.

Married [firstly] before 6 Nov 1276 Margery, daughter of ---. Letters were issued for “Margery wife of Theobald de Verdun” nominating two attorneys for her “for a year after Martinmas” (from the context of the calendar suggesting that she was going “beyond seas”), dated 6 Nov 1276. If the calendar summary correctly reflects the original document..., “beyond seas” would probably have meant Ireland considering the Verdun family’s connections. The question arises whether this Margery was the same person as Margery de Bohun, who is named below as Theobald [I]’s possible second wife. The normal reading of the 1306 document summarised below indicates a chronology which excludes Margery being the same person as Theobald’s wife who was named in 1276. While that document is poorly written, confusing and self-contradictory as explained below, there are insufficient indications from two other available sources to suggest that it should be ignored or reinterpreted. Firstly, Theobald [I]’s inquisitions suggest that he held Bisley in Gloucestershire from his Bohun wife but include no information which helps with the chronology of his marriage(s). Secondly, Theobald [II]’s inquisitions did not include Bisley, which suggests that he did not inherit the property..., although he could have sold or otherwise disposed of it after inheriting. The issue is not without doubt, but these difficulties need to be highlighted. Married secondly [as her second husband, Margery de Bohun... There is doubt about the identity of this person. Her parentage and two marriages are indicated by the following document which suggests that Margery married firstly “Robert de W---“ and secondly “Theobald de Verdun”. In connection with a lawsuit in Easter Term 1306, an edited extract states that “Theobald de Verdun” (“Tebaud de Verdone”) vouched to the Earl of Hereford that his father Humphrey (“un Umfrey sun pere”) had given “the tenements [unspecified] demanded to Robert de W. [unidentified] in frank-marriage with Margery his daughter” (“les tenements demaundez a Robert de W. en franc-mariage ove Margerie sa fille”). This edited extract is difficult to understand, particularly because the parties to the lawsuit, the property in question, and the precise nature of the claim are not specified. Logically, the “Earl of Hereford” should have been the earl then living [Humphrey [VIII] de Bohun], particularly because the extract also includes a reply on the earl’s behalf aiming to indicate that the gift was void by stating that “for fifteen years before this charter was made Humphrey our father had nothing in the tenements”. If that is correct, the earl’s father was Humphrey [VII] de Bohun, who was born in [1249] and died in 1298. In that case, Margery could not have been born before [1276/80] and, assuming that she married Theobald [I] de Verdun as her second husband, could not have been the same person as Theobald’s wife Margery who is named in 1276. The conclusion of the lawsuit appears to have been (according to the edited extract) that the deed was admitted and therefore Theobald and Margery “were seised [of the tenements] on the day of the making thereof and Robert was never seised”. This appears to make little sense if the edited extract correctly reflects the ‘voucher’. Another problem is the identity of “Tebaud de Verdone”. Logic suggests that he was Theobald [I], who was then head of the family. If that is correct, the property subject of the 1306 lawsuit was probably Bisley, Gloucestershire, noted in the inquisitions following his death as “held in free marriage of the earl of Hereford”.... However, Bisley was not mentioned in the 1316 inquisitions following the death of Theobald [II] de Verdun, son of Theobald [I]. This omission could support the hypothesis of Theobald [I]’s second marriage, as Theobald [II] would not have inherited the property if Margery de Bohun was not his mother, unless he sold or otherwise disposed of it between 1309 and 1316.] 1

[In] the 3rd of Edward I., upon doing homage, had livery of his lands, paying £100 for his relief. At this period, he held the office of CONSTABLE OF IRELAND. For some years subsequently, this eminent person seems to have enjoyed the favour of the crown, and to have received several immunities; but in the 19th of Edward's reign, we find him arraigned for treason, and divers other misdemeanours, before the king and council, at Bergavenny, and condemned to imprisonment and confiscation; the king, however, taking into consideration the good services of his ancestors, and his own submission, freed him for a fine of five hundred marks; and he was soon after summoned to parliament as BARON VERDON. In the 29th of the same reign, (Edward I.,) his lordship was one of the barons in the parliament of Lincoln, who, by a public instrument, under their seals, sent to Pope Boniface VIII., asserted the right of King Edward, as superior lord of the whole realm of Scotland. Lord Verdon having had summons to parliament, to 3rd November, 1306, d. in 1309. 2
