Families covered: Fettiplace of Compton Beauchamp, Fettiplace of North Denchworth

(1) We give full credit to 'TUDOR' for being the source for most of the data on these pages on the Fettiplace family, with apologies to that site should we have made any errors in transcribing any data.
(2) The family name appears to have been spelt with several variations along the lines of Fettiplace, Feteplace, Pheteplas, etc.. We keep to 'Fettiplace' which appears to be the most common. BEB1841 (Fettiplace of Childrey) suggests that the family descended from a Fettiplace who (according to BEB1841) "was gentleman usher to William the Conqueror, and came in with that monarch". 'TUDOR' starts with the following Adam. We have found a web site on the family which suggests that his father may have been called Thomas.

  m. Beatrix of Portugal (widow of Gilbert Talbot, Lord Strange of Blackmere)
  'TUDOR' warns that Beatrix is often confused with Beatrice, an illegitimate dau of Joao, King of Portugal, who married Thomas FitzAlan, Earl of Arudnel, then John Holand, Duke of Exeter, and then makes a link indicating that she was a legitimate daughter of that King (by Philippa Plantagenet, dau of John of Gaunt). The true identity of this Beatrix is unclear. TCP (Talbot) notes that she may have been of the family of Pinto or of that of de Souza, the latter connection possibly explaining why her coat of arms was based on the Royal family of Portugal.
