Dear Newsgroup ~

I've posted below four documents which prove that Sir Richard de Lucy's
wife was named Rohese. The documents concern a grant made in 1148/51
by which Sir Richard de Lucy gave 10 shillings annually to the canons
of Holy Trinity, London, for the soul of his wife, Rohese. This grant
was subsequently confirmed by the heirs of Sir Richard's elder son,
Geoffrey de Lucy, and also by Sir Richard's younger son, Godfrey de
Lucy, Bishop of Wincester.

The information below contains additional evidence in support of the
identification of parentage of Sir Richard de Lucy's younger grandson,
Geoffrey de Lucy, found in Complete Peerage under Lucy. In one of the
documents below, Geoffrey's son, Amaury de Lucy, specifically refers to
Sir Richard de Lucy as his great-grandfather. This confirms that
Amaury's father, Geoffrey de Lucy, was a grandchild of Sir Richard de
Lucy as set forth by the editor of Complete Peerage.

John Ravilious earlier posted the evidence that I found which proves
that Rohese de Lucy was the sister of Faramus of Boulogne. For Rohese
of Boulogne's extended ancestry, please see Hal Bradley's great
database at the following web address:

Dear Newsgroup ~

As a followup to my original post, I might note that Rohese of
Boulogne, wife of Sir Richard de Lucy, is specifically called
"grandmother" by Rohese de Dover in one of the four documents I posted
yesterday. Rohese de Dover can readily be identified as one of the
daughters and co-heirs of Geoffrey de Lucy, elder son of Sir Richard de
Lucy. This proves that Rohese of Boulogne was the mother of Sir
Richard de Lucy's elder son, Geoffrey.

Sir Richard de Lucy made his grant for the soul of his wife, Rohese,
sometime in the period, 1148/51, which was after the births of all of
his children. Consequently, this makes it rather clear that Rohese of
Boulogne was the mother of both of his sons, Geoffrey and Godfrey, and
almost certainly all of his daughters. I might add that the given
names, Geoffrey and Godfrey, are both Boulogne family given names.

As such, it is evident that (1) Sir Richard de Lucy's wife was named
Rohese; (2) that she was the mother of his sons, and almost certainly
his daughters; and (3) that Rohese was the sister of Faramus of
Boulogne (as indicated by her son, Godfrey's charter naming Faramus as
his uncle). The onomastic evidence also fits the last conclusion very
well.

Thank you for such great posts, Mr. Richardson. Appreciate the
documentation. I didn't see anything about an uncle in the charters you
posted; thus, I have a question about:

<(3) that Rohese was the sister of Faramus of
Boulogne (as indicated by her son, Godfrey's charter naming Faramus as
his uncle). >

Have you eliminated the possibility that Godfrey had a spouse who had an
uncle Faramus?


In a new vein:

Does anyone have any documentation to show where the surname Lucy came from?
I was tempted at one time to think it came from Luce but now am convinced
that Richard Lucy was a Breton and that the name Lucy came from Lessay or
L'Essay (Exaquium) aka St. Oportuna. Any comment?

Dear Ginny ~

Thank you for your good post. Much appreciated.

In answer to your question, Sir Richard de Lucy's younger son, Godfrey
de Lucy, was Bishop of Winchester. As a priest, he would have had no
wife. That being the case, Bishop Godfrey's uncle, Faramus of
Boulogne, would necessarily have been the brother of one of Bishop
Godfrey's parents. For various reasons, it is impossible for Sir
Richard de Lucy to have been a brother or half-brother of Faramus of
Boulogne. As such, the connection between Bishop Godfrey de Lucy and
his uncle, Faramus of Boulogne, would necessarily be through Godfrey's
mother, Rohese.

For those so interested, I should mention that there are good
biographies of both Sir Richard de Lucy and his son, Bishop Godfrey de
Lucy, in the older version of the DNB. I have not seen the new version
of the DNB, but I assume their biographies are found in that source as
well.

Richardson dismisses the possibility of Richard de Lucy to be either a
brother or half-brother of Faramus and therefor the connection _must be
through Godfrey's mother_
but how? Full brother or half-brother? If half-brother, who is different?
Rohese's father or mother?

It appears there is no proof, only assumption.

Dear Leo ~

Please call me Douglas, not by the formal Richardson.

I know you're confused, Leo. I recommend you review the primary

then get back to me.

For now, I will repeat my statement again: For various reasons, it is
impossible for Richard de Lucy to have been a brother or half-brother
of Faramus of Boulogne. I trust that's clear enough for you.

Boulogne, would necessarily have been the brother of one of Bishop
Godfrey's parents. For various reasons, it is impossible for Sir
Richard de Lucy to have been a brother or half-brother of Faramus of
Boulogne. As such, the connection between Bishop Godfrey de Lucy and
his uncle, Faramus of Boulogne, would necessarily be through Godfrey's
mother, Rohese.
For those so interested, I should mention that there are good
biographies of both Sir Richard de Lucy and his son, Bishop Godfrey de
Lucy, in the older version of the DNB. I have not seen the new version
of the DNB, but I assume their biographies are found in that source as
well.

So, I'll ask again nicely: What is your first name?

And, please call me Douglas, not by the formal salutation, Mr.

Richardson dismisses the possibility of Richard de Lucy to be either a

but how? Full brother or half-brother? If half-brother, who is different?
Rohese's father or mother?

Dear Mr. Richardson,

Were I to give you another name, you would be no better informed about
my identity than you are now. If I were to give you the name on my
birth certificate, of what value to you would it be?

CED has been my pen name for quite some time. I have used it for those
of my writings other than my professional writings, writings which form
the basis of a good reputation and enable me to earn a living. With
your history of abuse, my giving you my name would constitute consent,
leaving me no legal recourse. Of course, some might suggest that you
are attempting to evade my request for primary evidence.

If you check the archives, you will find that you have willingly
corresponded with a number of persons using obvious pen names without
objection. These pen names(or aliases)can be posted if you request
them.

Are you using my use of a pen name as a means of changing the subject?

If you cannot respond to my request for primary evidence regarding
Rohese, wife of Richard de Lucy, and Faramus of Boulogne, I must assume
that you do not have the primary evidence. What is the primary evidence
that Rohese was the sister of Faramus of Boulogne?

Please be assured that I intend no disrespect to you or to the group.

With my best regards,

To the Newsgroup:

Mr. Richardson has asked that I address him using his given name.

According to my family customs, one uses a given name for family of
equal generation and younger, school mates, and intimate friends. In
addition, in families having them, servants were addressed by given
name. (My family had no servants; so, I only report this in order to
be more nearly complete.) Mr. Richardson is none of these.

At the university (and I think in most of the academic world), faculty
with a doctorate were addressed by title. Others, unless they were
intimate friends in informal situations, were addressed with
"Mr./Mrs./Ms." Formalities were maintained in public. So, were I to
meet Mr. Richardson on campus, he would be just that, Mr. Richardson.

To ask that another greet or address you in terms more intimate than
exists in fact is to ask that he become a hypocrit, the worst form of
liar. Mr. Richardson has asked that I address him as 'Douglas.' That
I cannot do. He is not my friend. Never has there been a circumstance
in which he can lay a claim as to friendship with me. Therefore, to do
so would be hypocritical.

If Mr. Richardson were to continue to insist on my using intimate
terms, I shall avoid doing so by not addressing him directly. I shall
refer to him in the third person as DR.

As an example of why I cannot consider him to be a friend, I set out
the following from his last posting addressed to me: I wrote--
"> CED has been my pen name for quite some time. I have used it for

Post by CED
of my writings other than my professional writings, writings which form
the basis of a good reputation and enable me to earn a living. With
your history of abuse, my giving you my name would constitute consent,

DR has a long history of using abusive language, as all of this group
should know. He has published some awful language to this group.
Against that I must protect myself. Were he to pry into my background
without my consent and find a means of hurting my reputation, then he
would be subject to legal recourse. I do want to preserve that right.

This DR twisted into:
"If you find my asking you for your real name to be "abusive," then I
suggest you consult a psychiatrist. If you feel the need to hide among
friends, you possess irrational fears that are unwarranted. Your well
being is far more important to me than Richard de Lucy."

How could he think himself a friend when he twists my words thusly?

How does, as he claims, knowing a person's given name help with knowing
of his or her honor or integrity?

DR has willingly and without objection dealt with a number of persons
using aliases, most recently "Solitaire." He himself has used "Uriah
N. Owen."

For the moment I leave this matter; but I shall return later with the
substance of the question originally asked of DR: what is the primary
evidence that Rohese, wife of Richard de Lucy, was the sister of
Faramus of Boulogne?

Most of this group seems to have overlooked the nature of that
evidence. Some in this group are quite knowledgeable about medieval
documents. Nobody has questioned the document itself. What is its date?
Who transcribed it? Who translated it? Who was first to catalogue it?
Could it be that DR wishes to avoid questions about the document by
raising the given name question?

My reputation does not not depend upon an answer from DR about the

He uses words lightly, often without regard for their meaning. I once
thought it to be result of his education. Now I am coming to believe
that he uses and misuses words because they have no real meaning to
him -- no intergrity.

To use terms of inimacy in circumstances such as this newsgroup (where

Indeed.

Stand & Deliver, CED!

We don't cotton to pogues and poguettes who hide behind pseudonyms or
aliases here.

We figure if a person doesn't even have the courage to sign with his or
her Real Name, we can't put much credence in anything they write above
the pseudonym or alias.

Sock puppets often use pseudonyms or aliases in order to hide their true

In polite French society people used to address each other formally until
they mutually decided to tutoyer each other _allowing_ the other person to
address him/her m ore informally. To demand : I only speak to you if I can
address you by your first name is outrages.

Pandit Nehroe? My foot I call you Jahwaral whether you like it or not And
Prince Charles Your Royal Higness? Not likely. I do do think each person
_can ask_ to be addressed by what they themselves feel comfortable with. And
in polite society others should respect that.

Dear Ginny ~
Thank you for your good post. Much appreciated.
In answer to your question, Sir Richard de Lucy's younger son,
Godfrey
de Lucy, was Bishop of Winchester. As a priest, he would have had no
wife. That being the case, Bishop Godfrey's uncle, Faramus of
Boulogne, would necessarily have been the brother of one of Bishop
Godfrey's parents. For various reasons, it is impossible for Sir
Richard de Lucy to have been a brother or half-brother of Faramus of
Boulogne. As such, the connection between Bishop Godfrey de Lucy and
his uncle, Faramus of Boulogne, would necessarily be through
Godfrey's
mother, Rohese.
For those so interested, I should mention that there are good
biographies of both Sir Richard de Lucy and his son, Bishop
Godfrey de
Lucy, in the older version of the DNB. I have not seen the new
version
of the DNB, but I assume their biographies are found in that
source as
well.

I think politeness should be universal. CED made it clear that this is how
he prefers to be addressed. So far you have refused to reply to him because
you want to address him as John, Fred anything but CED. How we address
people is of less importance than the content of the reply. The contents, or
explanations, to my requests are still nil in regards to the identification
of Rohese as a Rohese de Boulogne. Is that because you do not have an
answer?

To me it seems you hoped that by blustering your way over the identification
of Rohese as Rohese de Boulogne you will cower others into accepting it.
That is not a collegial thing to do, let alone ethical.

Personally I am so hoping you can establish that Rohese is a _full_ sister
of Faramus as then her descendants have even more interesting ancestors. But
we should not be willing to accept information _because it would be so
nice_.

No, because it is not Richardson's place to decide how another person
should identify himsefl or herself.

Newsgroups like sgm are modern counterparts of 19th-century
institutions in print, such as _Notes and Queries_, where use of actual
or pseudonymous sets of initials by contributors, instead of personal
names and/or surnames, was common. And prefectly reasonable.

Doug,

Just was looking something up for another purpose and came across a Haskins
Society Journal article entitled The School of Caen Revisited, by David S.
Spear, "In addition, Bayeux was a stronghold for married clergy so that its
associations with the School of Caen would only intensify the School's
reputation outside Normandy as being theologically conservative and morally
suspect. [49]" [fn49] Brooke, Medieval Church and Society, 86; Gleason,
Ecclesiastical History, 23-5. Married clergy are still to be found in
Bayeux in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. Francois Neveux, "Trois

Here are words but it is not an answer. For various reasons it is impossible
for Richard de Lucy to have been a brother or half-brother of Faramus, and
so _the only solution_ is that Faramus is a full brother of Rohese? The
thought half-siblings is dismissed like that?
Shades of Amy de Gaveston?

I know you're confused, Leo. I recommend you review the primary

Ginny responded:

Thank you, Doug, for your response to my question. It certainly sounds like
you are very busy handling the book signings and mailings which makes your
participation here on the list even more remarkable.

Ralph Flambard is quite well known as not just a bishop of Durham but as
having 'relations' with Christina of Markyate's aunt and then wishing to
enjoy Christina's favors. And of course, there is the famous story of
Abelard and Heloise with the explanation that they married secretly so that
he could advance in position within the Church -- not that it was illegal --
just frowned upon.

In the 12c, prior to Becket, particularly in England, the appointments to
these powerful positions were more or less by the king rather than results
of piety and adherence to the Word and it would seem that since the
appointments were coming from a secular source these men very well could
have wives prior to the appointments. My ancestor was, in fact, a secular
master prior to being appointed by Henry I though the Gesta says he was
elected as abbot there is really no mention of him in the Gesta as prior or
monk before he appeared in 1119 as elected abbot; the network of kinship
throughout the abbacies and bishoprics is mind-boggling in the twelfth
century as evidenced by reading the Charters from the times.

I've read that the fact that marriage kept appearing and reappearing at
councils meant that it took a long time for doctrinal theory to become
widely practiced.

Thus, although you are quite correct in theory, I'm not willing to accept a
blanket statement of fact about the 12c that no priests were married;
although, in this case you may very well be correct. I'm sure that once you
(or someone else) find the documentation that Rohese was sister or
half-sister to Faramus, we'll all be a bit more knowledgeable. Thank you
once again for your attention. I appreciate your time. ;-) Ginny

Good Afternoon,
I believe that Rohese, (Rohaise) was the widow of the earl of essex,
daughter of Alberic de Vere, Lord Justiciary,temp Henry I,married 2nd,
Richard de Lucy,Constable of Falaise in Normandy for King Stephen, 1162
appointed Lord Justiciary of England,Henry I, 1172 appointed 2nd time High
Justiciary marching into Scotland with Humphrey de Bohun. Richard De Lucy
had 2 sons, Geoffrey and Herbert, and two daughters, Maude married Walter
fitz Robert, ancestors of the Fitzwalters, and Rohais, his other daughter,
married Fulbert de Dover, Lord of Chilham in Kent.
Data from "The Battle Abbey Roll" vol. II,p.128 and vol III,198-204 by the
Duchess of Cleveland, printed London, by John Murry, Albemarle Street,
1889. Hope this helps.

Dear Emmett ~

The information you posted on Sir Richard de Lucy's family is a bit
garbled. While interesting to read, the "Battle Abbey Roll" is not a
very reliable source. I strongly recommend you use other more
reliable sources when compiling your pedigrees for this time period.

Sir Richard de Lucy had five children in all, among them two sons,
Geoffrey and Bishop Godfrey, and one daughter, Maud, wife of Walter
Fitz Robert. Herbert de Lucy and Rohese de Dover were grandchildren of
Sir Richard de Lucy.

Rohese (or Rose) de Dover was the daughter of Geoffrey de Lucy, by an
unidentified first wife. Geoffey de Lucy in turn was the son and heir
apparent of Sir Richard de Lucy, by his wife, Rohese of Boulogne.

For your interest, I've posted below another document which proves that
Rohese (or Rose) de Dover was a granddaughter of Sir Richard de Lucy.

Doug,

Thank you for the link to Rose de Dover. Isn't it great when the title line
gives so much information? I know you are very busy right now but, can you
easily verify that Walter Lucy, abbot of Battle Abbey was a brother of
Richard and of Robert -- or maybe Robert was their father?

A Robert Lucy is mentioned in Dom David Knowles' The Monastic Order in
England, page 187 footnoted as from Chron. Bell. 65 as being introduced to
the royal circle in Henry I time by his kinsman, Abbot Geoffrey de Gorham of
St. Albans Abbey.

He also mentions on page 277-9 that Walter de Lucy, abbot of Battle from
1139 - 1171 was a brother of Richard Lucy, the celebrated justicar of Henry
II accompanied by a moving story of Walter's death and his brother Richard's
compassion.

Knowles says on page 278 that Walter was originally a monk of Lonle who "had
for some time been living with abbot Geoffrey of St. Albans, a relative, and
through him and through his brother, Richard, had become persona grata with
the king and the court circle" which is also footnoted Chron. Bell. 65.

It would be great to know just what they meant by "kin" back in the twelfth
century! Thanks for any help you can give. Much appreciated. ;-) Ginny

Dear Ginny ~

Thank you for your good post.

Yes, Walter de Lucy, Abbot of Battle Abbey, was the brother of Sir
Richard de Lucy. Walter and Richard almost certainly had another
brother, Robert de Lucy, of Essex, and a sister, Margaret de Lucy, wife
of William de Chesney (or Cheyne).

I've copied below a charter of William de Chesney which names his wife,
Margaret de Lucy. The use of Margaret's maiden name in this charter
indicates she came from a prominent family. A sister of the Chief
Justiciar of England would fall in that category. Elsewhere, I find
William de Chesney and Richard de Lucy are associated together in the
records of this period.

Good Evening again,
It is hard to say, as I understand it, and is written, at least as
recorded in one of my sources, this, in the "Battle Abbey Roll", Richard
de Lucy' had two sons Geoffrey, the heir, did not survive his
father,(Richard), and left an only son who died s.p.: Herbert, the younger
son also had no issue and their sister Rohese(Rohaise) had livery of the
whole barony, tho Maude the other sister appears to have inherited
Angre,(Normandy estates) and the Essex estates.

I have added Rohese to www.wikipedia.org

I note that wikipedia states that Richard de Lucy retired to Lesnes Abbey in
Kent where he died and is buried. I had not noted that specificity in this
thread so far.

Perhaps "he" is French or Belgian.

Brandon:

Yes, when I stop to think about it. My form of dyslexia forces me to
spell by rules I learned when I was young. Putting an 'e' at the end
of the word which sounds like hypocrit changes its sound, by
lengthening the 'i'; so that it would sound like 'hypoceyet.' So if I
type without thinking, I change the spelling of certain words. Sorry
about that.

Yep, I was thinking there was a slightly foreign aspect to his/her
writing.

From the Cartulary of the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem, a charter for Chrishall, Essex indicates that Robert de Lucy was the son of Eustace III, earl of Boulogne. The relationship of Robert to Eustace, and the origin of Robert's jurisdiction over land in Chrishall may be explained by this, including Godfrey de Lucy calling Pharamus de Boulogne avunculus. Robert could be his illegitimate son (Round believes that Ralph and Eustace, sons of the Earl were also illegitimate). Later in another charter Richard de Lucy confirmed the land was granted to the Hospitallers "concessu Roberti de Lucy".

What can you tell us more about the Cartulary? Where can it be found, what archive, which inv.number, number of the charter, etc.? Otherwise this information is nothing more than an unverifiable statement.

I'm sure most of you know that Richard de Luci founded Lesnes Abbey at Erith as an act of penance for his involvement in the murder of Thomas A Becket, Becket had previously excommunicated him twice. Luci tried to take away the churches right to try monks for crimes insisting they be tried by common law. Luci and Becket became bitter ememies. Becket's murder weighed heavily on Richard afterwards causing him to resign as Chief Justiciar of England and take up the cloth of a monk at Lesnes in 1179. He was only there three months when he died. . But many may not know that his tomb at Lesnes was dug up in the 16thc, smashed and desecrated by treasure hunters. Fortunately the remains and stone tomb were collected up and taken to Marden church in Kent. (Luci had given the endowment of Marden to Lesnes many centuries early) Richard remains at rest there still in the Lady Chapel although the tomb was greatly damaged by a fire in the church in the 18th. There is no inscription to see on the stones but Richard's re-interment is recorded by the church. Any passing relative should visit him and give some respect.
Also
Amery Lucey or Luci of the manor of Newington-Lucies in Kent in 1350 obtained royal permission to erect a tiny wayside chapel at Newington next to their house on the site of a blessed cross that once stood there commemorating St Thomas dismounting his horse outside Newington Lucies (the house was on the A2 Watling Street) and baptising some local children on his way to Canterbury. Naturally miracles were reported at the cross after Beckets murder. The Lucies sort to cash in on the pilgrim trail after Becket was canonised and the cult of Becket took off. Offerings from the chapel were given to support the already failing Lesnes Abbey. The Chapel was dedicated to St Thomas and Blessed Virgin.....Nothing like a few miracles to bring in the punters. Sadly nothing of the cross, Newington-Lucies house or the chapel remains. Hasted noted the house stood until the late 18thc.
I'm local to the area and have an interesting in local history spanning 60 years.
