• Background Information. 829
William de Beauchamp had been zealous in his support of empress Maud, and was therefore dispossessed of the Castle of Worcester by King Stephen. This, and all his other estates and honors were restored by King Henry II. During the reign of King Henry II he was also made sheriff of Warwickshire (2 Henry II), sheriff of Gloucestershire (3 to 9 Henry II, inclusive), and sheriff of Herefordshire (from 8 to 16 Henry II inclusive). William married Maude Braose, the daughter of William Lord Braose, of Gower. Their son who succeeded him at his death was also named William de Beauchamp.
