Hawise DE KEVELIOC, Countess of Lincoln

Robert "the elder" DE QUINCY

  • Born: Between 1187 and 1190, Winchester, Hampshire, England
  • Married: Before 1208
  • Died: 25 Apr 1217, London, Middlesex, England

  Research Notes:

"Seherus de Quency comes Wintonie" donated "ecclesiam de Gasc" to Inchaffray Abbey, for the souls of "patris nostri bone memorie Roberti de Quency et…matris nostre Orable et…Roberti de Quency primogeniti nostri et…Margarete uxoris nostre" by charter dated to [1210/13]. The husband of Hawise of Chester was, according to the Complete Peerage, either Robert son of Robert de Quincy (about whose existence there appears to be no other evidence) or Robert eldest son of Saher de Quincy Earl of Winchester. However, the (undated) charter of Saher Earl of Winchester, relating to the grant of Bukby, Grantesset, Bradcham and Herdwick resolves the matter conclusively as it clearly states that Hawise was the wife of his eldest son Robert. "Seherus de Quency comes Wintonie" donated "totam terram de Duglyn", held by "Nesus filius Willelmi avus meus" to Cambuskenneth priory, with the consent of "Robert filii mei", by undated charter. Robert was excommunicated with his father in Dec 1215.

The Annals of Waverley record the death in 1217 of “Robertus de Quinci, filius Seeri de Quinci”. The necrology of Garendon abbey (Leicestershire) records the death “die Sancti Marci Evangeliste” 1264 of “dominus Rogerus de Quyncy comes Wintonie filius et heres...Saeri de Quyncy et Margarete sororis Roberti comitis Leyc” and his burial at Garendon. He was accidentally poisoned through medicine prepared by a Cistercian monk. 1

  Marriage Information:

Robert married Hawise DE KEVELIOC, daughter of Hugh "le Meschin" DE KEVELIOC, 3rd Earl of Chester, and Bertrade DE MONTFORT, before 1208. (Hawise DE KEVELIOC was born between 1175 and 1181 in Chester, England and died shortly before 9 Mar 1242/3.)
