Dear Newsgroup ~

Complete Peerage 2 (1912): 507 (sub Camoys) includes a brief biography of Sir Thomas de Camoys, 2nd Lord Camoys (died 1372). The following information is provided by Complete Peerage regarding his marriage and issue.

"He married, in or shortly before 1327, Margaret, who by her will, dated 1386, directed her burial to be in the church of St. George at Trotton. He died s.p.s., 11 April 1372, his son, Ralph, having predeceased him." END OF QUOTE.

As we can see, Complete Peerage states that Sir Thomas de Camoys had a son and heir apparent, Ralph de Camoys, but provides no particulars regarding Ralph saving his name and that he died before his father.

In the course of research, I've determined that Sir Thomas de Camoys' son, Sir Ralph de Camoys, married Elizabeth, daughter of William Croyser (or Crozier), Knt., of Stoke D’Abernon, Surrey. Sir Ralph de Camoys was living in 1365–6, and died before 12 Feb. 1370. At his death, his wife Elizabeth survived him. She re-married twice after his death, first to Sir Edward de Kendale the younger, and second to Sir Thomas [de la] Barre. Although Elizabeth had no surviving issue by either her first or second marriages, she had a son, Thomas Barre, Knt., by her third marriage. She died in advanced old age shortly before 1 Jan. 1421.

For interest's sake, I've copied my current file account of Sir Ralph de Camoys and his wife, Elizabeth Croyser, below.

Although Elizabeth Croyser has no Camoys descendants, by way of her son, Thomas Barre, Knt., Elizabeth is ancestral to the following 17th Century New World immigrants:

Henry, Thomas, & William Batte, Anne Fielder

He married ELIZABETH CROYSER (or CROZIER), daughter of William Croyser (or Crozier), Knt., of Stoke D’Abernon, Surrey. They had no issue. SIR RALPH DE CAMOYS was living in 1365–6, and died before 12 Feb. 1370. His widow, Elizabeth, married (2nd) EDWARD DE KENDALE, Knt. [the younger], of Kendals (in Wrestlingworth) and Woodcroft (in Luton), Bedfordshire, Shalden, Hampshire, Maidencroft (in Ippollitts), Titburst (in Aldenham), and Wakeley, Hertfordshire, etc. SIR EDWARD DE KENDALE died 1375. His widow, Elizabeth, married (3rd) before 1 Feb. 1381 THOMAS [DE LA] BARRE, Knt., of Barre’s Court (in Holmer), Blakemere, Clehonger, Cobham (in Allensmore), Little Marcle, Meer Court (in Allensmore), Moccas, and Rotherwas (in Dinedor), and Tarrington, Herefordshire, Ayot St. Lawrence, Hertfordshire, Matherne, Monmouthshire, etc., Justice of the Peace for Herefordshire, 1384–5, Knight of the Shire for Herefordshire, 1386, 1402, 1416, Knight of the Shire for Hertfordshire, 1401, 1407, 1411, Justice of the Peace for Hertfordshire, 1401, 1406–7. They had one son, Thomas Barre, Knt. She is possibly the Elizabeth Camoys who was paid 50s. by Sir Edward Courtenay, Earl of Devon out of his manor of Waddesdon, Buckinghamshire in 1382–3. Thomas presented to the church of Hardingham, Norfolk in 1392. He and Elizabeth his wife presented to the church of Hardington, Norfolk in 1417. SIR THOMAS BARRE died 12 or 22 Dec. 1420. Elizabeth died shortly before 1 Jan. 1421.

Of interest, Elizabeth's ipm makes it clear that her mother was Elizabeth d'Abernon (daughter of William D'Abernon) who married secondly a John Grey of Ruthin (d. 1391).

Can anyone pin down who this John was?

Dear Monica ~

I've copied below my current file account of John Grey, of Ruthin, Denbighshire, Wales, and his wife, Elizabeth d'Abernon, widow of William Croyser. In answer to your question, John Grey was a younger son of Reynold de Grey, Knt., 2nd Lord Grey of Ruthin [died 1388], by his wife, Eleanor le Strange. He appears to be the “John de Grey, brother of the lord de Grey” who was a legatee in the 1390 will of Ralph Basset, K.G., 3rd Lord Basset of Drayton.

John Grey and his wife, Elizabeth d'Abernon, presumably had a son, John Grey, who is probably the individual in the following record: In 1427 an assize was held to determine if John Grey, Esq., unjustly disseised Richard Tyrell, Esq., and Anne his wife regarding a tenement in Pavenham, Bedfordshire. The plaintiff, Anne, wife of Richard Tyrell, was the grand-daughter and heiress of Elizabeth d’Abernon, wife of William Croyser, Knt., and John Grey. Justices Itinerant, JUST 1/1539, image 478f; Date: 1427 (available at http://aalt.law.uh.edu/AALT4/JUST1/JUST1no1539/aJUST1no1539fronts/IMG_0478.htm).

I was under the impression that Elizabeth d'Abernon was the step-mother, not mother, of Elizabeth (Croyser) (Camoys) (Kendale) Barr. Can you quote the specific language in the IPM of Elizabeth Croyser which indicates that ELizabeth d'Abernon was her mother.

Best always, Douglas Richardson, Salt Lake City, Utah

1. JOHN GREY, of Ruthin, Denbighshire, Wales, and, in right of his wife, of Pavenham, Bedfordshire, Duxford, Cambridgeshire, Stoke d’Abernon, Eastwick (in Great Bookham), and Fetcham, Surrey, etc. younger son. He married before 8 July 1389 (date of fine) ELIZABETH D’ABERNON, widow of William Croyser (or Croiser), Knt. (died 1387), of Stoke d’Abernon, Surrey, Coroner of the Marshalsea, Clerk of the Market in the household of King Edward III, Steward to John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster, and daughter and heiress of William d’Abernon (died 1358), of Pavenham, Bedfordshire, Duxford, Cambridgeshire, Albury, Eastwick (in Great Bookham), Fetcham, and Stoke d’Abernon, Surrey, etc. They presumably had one son, John, Esq. In 1388 Elizabeth Croyser, lady of Stoke d’Abernon, Surrey owed Thomas Warner and John Hampton a debt of £500. The same year she conveyed the manor of Brettgrave (in Epsom), Surrey to Henry and Adam Bamme, goldsmiths of London. In 1389 Robert Lary, clerk, and John Aubyn, clerk, conveyed the manor of Pavenham, Bedfordshire to John and Elizabeth his wife and the heirs of their body. In 1390 John and Elizabeth conveyed the manors of Stoke d’Abernon, Eastwick (in Great Bookham), and Fetcham, Surrey and Duxford, Cambridgeshire to John Cobham, Esq., and three others. The same year John and Elizabeth his wife conveyed the reversion of the manors of Maidencroft (in Ippolitts) and Titburst (in Aldenham), Hertfordshire, and Wrestlingworth, Bedfordshire to Thomas de Percy, Knt., and others. He is presumably the “John de Grey, brother of the lord de Grey” who was a legatee in th 1390 will of Ralph Basset, K.G., 3rd Lord Basset of Drayton. JOHN DE GREY was living 1 July 1390 (date of fine), and died before 28 May 1391 (date of fine). In 1391 his widow, Elizabeth, conveyed the manors of Stoke d’Abernon, Fetcham, and Eastwick (in Great Bookham), Surrey, and Duxford, Cambridgeshire to John Cobham, Esq., and others. In 1392 her son William Croyser acted as a mainpernor on her behalf during the course of an action for debt brought against her by Roger Wangford, a London draper. In 1393 both mother and son joined with John Squiry in offering bonds worth £60 to two members of the Mercers’ Company, London. In July 1394 Elizabeth and her son, William Croyser, undertook to pay £200 to another city merchant named John Sandhurst, who successfully sued them for defaulting upon their agreement and was assigned the money from the manor of Albury, which Croyser then occupied. In October 1396 William Croyser specifically as Elizabeth’s son (and probably as her executor) received royal letters patent pardoning him two separate sentences of outlawry incurred for his failure to appear in court when being sued for further debts totalling £40.

Anyway, wanted to say thanks, Douglas, very helpful as always, and I'm sorry I seemed to drop off the map again.

One thing, though, Ann Tyrrell, was instead likely
the Anne Croyser who was a known dau. of Will, son of William and Elizabeth
d'Abernon. She appears to have married Sir Henry Norbury, and Sir Ingelram
Bruyn as well as Richard Tyrrell. Will dig around to see what sources I can
find for the marriages, I don't seem to have much noted in my tree other
than:

The suit came on again at Trinity term 4 H. 5, m. 112, when the plaintiffs sued Elizabeth as a feme sole, and she called to warranty Ann Croyser, kinswoman and heir of William Croyser, Kt., viz., daughter of William, son of William Croyser, Kt. Anne was under age.”

btw, I'm interested in the connections here of St. John, Dalyngrigge and Slyfield given that Nicholas Slyfield's son married the daughter of Sir Edward St. John whose identity has still not been quite sorted.

(c) "Editha que fuit uxor Willelmi Croyser armigeri defuncti." Writs of diem cl. ext. 24 May 6 Hen. V. Inq., Surrey, Kent, 1 June and Monday before St. Nicholas [5 Dec.] 1418. "predicta Editha obiit xxvj [vicesimo septimo-co. Kent] die Aprilis ultimo preterito." (Ch. Inq. p. m., Hen. V, file 32, no. 30). It is also here stated that Anne (Croyser), her da. and h., aged 13 or 14 and more, was married to Ingram [who d.s.p.], s, of Maurice Bruyn chr. So that Maurice must have been married previous to his marriage with Edith.
(Complete Peerage, Vol II, p 357 note c)

So Ingram, who d.s.p. before 5 Dec 1418, must be by a previous marriage of his father Maurice Bruyn and have married Anne Croyser a daughter of his subsequnet step mother.
