I keep notes on kinsfolk of all English and Scottish nobility in the medieval and early modern periods.
Over the past several years, I've encountered several kinsfolk of Sir Henry de Beaumont, 1st Lord Beaumont [died 1340], and his siblings, Louis de Beaumont, Bishop of Durham [died 1333], and Isabel de Beaumont [died 1334], wife of John de Vescy, Knt. I've copied below the pertinent citations.
1. Rymer, Fœdera 2(2) (1739): 16 (Almaricus [Amaury] de Trewe styled “kinsman” [consanguineus] of Louis [de Beaumont], Bishop of Durham in letter from King Edward II to the Pope John XXII dated 1321).
2. Cal.of Close Rolls, 1307–1313 (1892): 342 (Isabella de Prulay styled “kinswoman” of Henry de Beaumont in 1311; she desiring to devote herself to God, King Edward II requested that she be admitted into the convent of Caen in Normandy).
3. Cal. of Patent Rolls, 1330–1334 (1893): 240 (Amaury de Trew styled "kinsman" by Lewis [de Beaumont], Bishop of Durham in grant dated 1331).
4. Byerly & Byerly, Recs. of the Wardrobe & Household 1286–1289 (1986): 243, 258 (instances of Nicholas (or Colin) de Purle[y] styled “kinsman” [nepotis] of lady Isabel de Vescy).
As we see above, the Beaumont family had two kinsman, Amaury de Trew(e) and Nicholas (or Colin) de Purle[y], and one kinswoman, Isabella de Prulay.
Does anyone know how the Beaumont family is related to these people? Just a reminder: Such kinships can be as far afield as 5th cousin, so they need not be in the immediate family of Lord Beaumont and his siblings.
