  Research Notes:

In an undated charter undated sometime before 23 Mar 1321/2, her first husband's father granted to them the manors of Burton in Lonsdale, Hovingham and Kirkby Malzeard, Yorkshire, saving to the father the right to hunt therein when he wished. On 26 Feb 1321/2 John de Mowbray, his mother, Aline, and Maud daughter of Robert de Holand were arrested and conducted to the Tower of London. The marriage of John and Maud was subsequently voided. In settlement of their dispute, on 26 Oct 1332 Maud quitclaimed all her right to the three Yorkshire manors which had been settled on them by his father, while he agreed to grant her the manors of Ryarsh, Kent and Crick Northamptonshire for life. 2


Maud's death date is unknown; however, she appears to have died sometime before 10 May 1380, when the manor of Crick, Northamptonshire, which she held for life, was in the possession of the Mowbray family. 3
