Name: Robert de Waure
Residence: Amblecote, Staffs
Change Date: 23 MAY 2011
Presumably related to the Waure of Eccleshall in this file?
Robert de Waure was born in Amblecote about 1227 at what, presumably, was Amblecote Manor or Hall.
His daughter, Cecily (or Cecilia), born about 1255, was married to William de Stafford, the Earl of Stafford. The Manor of Amblecote descended through the Stafford family to Eleanor Strangways. Her son, Sir Giles Strangways, kt., sold the Manor to Rowland Shakerley in 1540.
...This suit gives us the name of the hoiress of Amblecote who married William de Stafford. Cecilia was doubtless daughter of Robert de Waure who held Amblecote of the Barony of Dudley in the early part of this reign.
