  Research Notes:

The Chronicle of Meaux, in Yorkshire, names "Baldewinum de Wake" as the son of "Hugo de Wake" and his wife "Johannam". A writ dated 6 Apr "4 Edw I", after the death of "Joan de Stutevill" names "Sir Baldwin de Wake her son is her next heir and of full age", and also refers to events "after the death of Hugh le Bigot sometime her husband". 1


BALDWIN WAKE, son and heir, said to be aged 38 in 1276, was given seisin of his lands, 20 October 1259. At Easter 1260 he came to London to aid the King; and in September 1261 he swore to be faithful to the Crown, and he was summoned to London to support Henry III, October following. He expressed his willingness, 13 December 1263, to accept the arbitration of King Louis in the quarrel between the barons and the King; but in the following year he was among the rebels captured by the Royal forces at Northampton and was imprisoned in Nottingham Castle. He was released after the victory of the barons at Lewes in 1264, but was again captured by Prince Edward at Kenilworth just before the battle of Evesham in 1265. Once again he escaped and opposed the King, seizing Fotheringhay Castle, Northants, and his name is mentioned among those who were with a force of armed men at Richmond. After suffering defeat in the company of the Earl of Derby at Chesterfield, May 1266, and having attacked the castle and sacked the city of Lincoln, he joined the rebels in the Isle of Axholme. He was granted protection, in summer 1266, to appear before the King, stood trial in the autumn and was pardoned, November following, if he accepted the Dictum of Kenilworth. In June 1267 he was granted exemption from assizes, juries and being made sheriff; and he obtained seisin of his mother's lands, 1 May 1276. He was present at the Council in Westminster which passed judgment on Llewelyn, November 1276, was summoned for service in Wales in 1277 and campaigned there in the household of the Earl of Gloucester. 2
