Subject: Identification of Julian(a), wife of Robert de Daiville
Date: Thu, 12 Sep 2002 12:32:42 -0400

In the CP account of the family of Deiville (also de Daiville, D'Eyville & c.) one individual previously unidentified was 'Julian', wife of Robert de Daiville (d. before 2 April 1201). The footnote concerning the ancestors of the Lords Deiville [Vol. IV, p. 131, note a] mentions her by name only, and states that she was the mother of John de Daiville, of Egmanton, Notts., son and heir of Robert.

The other issue arose recently in the postings concerning the Stuteville family, as a daughter of Robert de Stuteville (II as I recall) is shown as marrying 'Robert de Daivill'. At this point, it was not certain as to whether this was the 'correct' Robert, and given the lack of documentation in the CP account, which spouse of Robert de Daiville was the mother of John.

Rosie has found the identifying information in C.T. Clay, Early Yorkshire Charters vlx no. 17, and has provided the text from Curia Regis Roll, vol. ix, p. 291 which establishes that Julian was Juliana de Montfort, daughter of Thurstan de Montfort by Juliana Murdac, daughter of Geoffrey Murdac. The salient portion of the CR Roll record provided by Rosie states [concerning the claims put forward in 1220 regarding the estate of Walter de Montfort, son of Thurstan]:

' Et super hoc venit Johannes de Ayvill' et dicit quod cartas illas de Waltero debet ipse habere et non heres predicti Thurstani, quia Henricus de Muntford avus predicti heredid Thurstani dedit quandam terram predicto Waltero pro homagio suo et idem Johannes est filius sororis ipsius Walteri '

To which Rosie has also kindly provided the English rendering:

And afterwards John D'Eiville came and said that the charters of Walter [de Montfort] belonged to him and not the heirs of the said Thurstan because Henry de Montfort, the grandfather of the said Thurstan's heirs, had given the land to Walter for homage, and John was the son of the sister of this Walter.

Rosie has further demonstrated that the lands given to the Stuteville wife of Robert de Daiville [Langford] reverted back to the family, and that the lands of Kilburn, co. York. which were transferred to Roger de Mowbray (from whom de Daiville thereafter held them) were retained by the Deiville family. Rosie quoted below:

' Here is an abstract of a charter from EYC vix no.17.

Notification by Robert the dean and the chapter of York of an exchange between Roger de Mowbray, Robert de Stuteville, and Robert de Daiville and Juliana his wife, daughter of Thurstan de Montfort, by which, whereas Robert de Daiville was holding a moiety of Langford of Roger de Mowbray in fee and the other moiety of Langford with the vill of Kilburn in frank-marriage of Robert de Stuteville, whose sister he had accepted as his wife, Roger de Mowbray gave to Robert de Stuteville the former moiety of Langford in exchange for Kilburn ; and Robert Daiville, holding Kilburn of Roger de Mowbray, gave it to Juliana for her dower, who quitclaimed her dower rights in a moiety of Langford.[1154-1170]. '

The foregoing, together with the CR Roll concerning the claims of John de Daiville, proves the relationship.

All credit, and my thanks, to Rosie for her collegiality and willingness to share. Any questions, criticism or findings of shortcomings concerning this post should as always be directed to me.
