   Research Notes:

William d'Evereux, who, being one of the Barons Marchers, fought for the said King Henry against the Welch ; but
at the battle of Lewes, in Sussex, May 14th, 1264, he forsook
him, and siding with Simon Montfort, Earl of Leicester, and his partizans, was slain in the fight near Evesham, on August 4th,
1265. He married Maud, sister to Walter de Gifford, bishop of
Bath and Wells, and by her had an only son William.


An inquest of uncertain date but after 1228 showed William Devereux, son of Stephen Devereux, as still holding four and a half fees in Herefordshire along with a half-fee in Shropshire. By the 1242 inquest, William held a half-fee in Lower Heyton in Shropshire, a half-fee in Luntley, one fee in Lyonshall, a fifth of a fee in Lawton, a quarter fee in Holme Lacy, and four parts of one fee in Stoke Lacy. His mother, Isabelle, held a half-fee in Hamond's Frome as dower and the fourth part of one fee in Maund Aubin.... 1 2
