Families covered: Mowbray of Mowbray, Mowbray of Norfolk

Roger de Mowbray
(1) It is possible that this family is very closely connected to that of Arkil who fled Northumberland into Scotland and was progenitor of various families there as well as in Northern England.
(2) The following connection is presumptuous inasmuch as, though BE1883 (Mowbray) reports that Nigil (Nele), son of Roger and Amice, obtained lands forfeited by his maternal uncle Robert de Mowbray, Earl of Northumberland, TCP (Mowbray) states that Amice's "parentage is unknown" and that "the nature of the kindred between Robert and Nele is unknown; it has been suggested that Nele's mother, Amice, was a sister of Roger de Mowbray, Robert's father, but no sound evidence has been produced to support such a conjecture."
1. Robert de Mowbray, Earl of Northumberland
  m. (div) Maud de L'Aigle (dau of Richard de L'Aigle)
2. Amice de Mowbray HJY
  m. Roger de Albini HJY



Roger de Mowbray (d 1188)
Roger was grandson of the above-mentioned Roger de Albini. According to BE1883, he assumed the surname of Mowbray by command of King Henry I after coming into possession of the lands of Mowbray.
m. Alice de Gant (dau of Walter de Gant by Maud of Brittany)

  m. Agnes (dau of Earl of Arundel)
  i. Nigel or Nele de Mowbray (dsp 1230)
  m. Maud (d before 06.10.1240)
  TCP reports that "the tradition" (given in BE1883) that Maud was daughter of Roger de Camvil "is without foundation" as he dsp.
ii. Roger de Mowbray (d 1266)
  m. Maud de Beauchamp (d 04.1273, dau of William de Beauchamp of Bedford)
  a. Roger de Mowbray, 1st Lord (d before 21.11.1297)

  ((1)) Thomas de Mowbray, Earl Marshal, de jure 2nd Duke of Norfolk (b c1386, dsp 10.06.1405)
BP1934 reports that "The title of Duke of Norfolk was withheld from him upon the erroneous plea that, having been conferred upon him in the parliament of 21 Richard II., the proceedings in which were avoided by an Act of 1 Henry IV., the dignity of Duke of Norfolk fell under that Act." TCP reports that the Dukedom was annulled "a few days only after his father's death". TCP reports that his brother John was restored to the Dukedom and numbers him the 2nd Duke. BP1934 numbers John the 3rd Duke.

  (2) Alexander de Mowbray of Kirtlington or Kirklington
TCP makes no mention of the 1st Lord having any son other than his successor but BE1883 mentions this Alexander "who went to Scotland". We provisionally follow the web sites which identify this Alexander as of Kirklington (and father of the Elizabeth who married Sir William Gascoigne) but hope to investigate this further in due course.
  m. Elizabeth Muster (dau of Henry Muster) name found on various web sites
  (A) Elizabeth Mowbray
  m. Sir William Gascoigne of Gawthorpe (d 1412)

  b. Maud Mowbray possibly fits here

  iii. Joan de Mowbray (d 1314-5)
  m. (c1261) Robert de Mohaut
iv.+ 2 daughters
  B. Robert de Mowbray
  C. Philip de Mowbray of Barnbougle (a 1215, ambassador) --
  m. Galiena (dau of Waldeve of Dunbar) --
  D. Roger de Mowbray
  Roger is not mentioned by TCP but is identified by BE1883 as of this generation and as ancestor of the Mowbrays of Kirklington. We have so far found references to 2 different Mowbrays of Kirklington, Willliam and Alexander, but have doubts about the William because his mention by BEB1844 (Ingleby of Ripley) may have been in error. [BEB1844 identifies the wife of Sir Thomas Ingleby (a 1350), father of the John who founded the monastery of Mount Grace, as Eleanor, daughter & heir of William Mowbay of Kirtlington by Margaret, dau of John Chaumont of Colton, but Walker's Yorkshire Pedigrees (1942, Chaumond of Colton) shows the daughter of Margaret Chaumond by William Mowbray (of no designation) as Ellenor (d 1470) who married Thomas Ingleby, son of the John who founded that monastery, ie. 2 generations later.] We provisionally follow those web sites which show Alexander of Kirklington as brother of the 2nd Lord, see above.
  E. daughter
  m. Enguerrand du Hommet (brother of William the Constable)
2. Robert de Mowbray
