  General Notes:

Compiler's 24/25 x great-grandmother

  Research Notes:

Her alleged legitimacy, the subject of a bitter dispute in the late 17th century, was championed by one of her supposed descendants Thomas Mainwaring of Baddeley, Cheshire. It is difficult at this distance in time to judge the merits of the arguments, although it is interesting to note that her daughter was named Bertrade, the name of Earl Hugh’s wife who herself witnessed the charter which recorded Amicia’s marriage contract..., which may suggest that Bertrade de Montfort was her mother. On the other hand, Amicia is not named among the earl’s legitimate daughters who are referred to in several contemporary primary sources, as quoted above. “H. comes Cestrie” granted “servicium Giliberti filii Rogeri, scilicet servicium trium militum” to “Radulfo de Meinilwarin cum Amicia filia mea in libero maritagio” by charter dated to [1178/80], witnessed by “Bertraya comitisse Cestrie...Willelmo de Meinilwarin...Roberto de Meinilwarin...”. 1

  Marriage Information:

Amicia married Sir Ralph DE MAINWARING, Justice of Chester. (Ralph DE MAINWARING died after 1210.)
