Name: John de Lodbroke
Death: ABT 1349
Change Date: 2 AUG 2010
Sir John must have died just about this time, not improbably of the Black Death, as in 1350 his widow Hawise (They were married in or before 1324) was granted by William son of Nicholas le Wodeward a life interest in the manor of Harbury and an estate in Tanworth, with remainder after her death to William Catesby and then to Thomas son of Sir John de Lodbroke and Alice daughter of the said William Catesby in tail male, with contingent remainders to Thomas's brothers Hugh and John. Apparently Thomas and Hugh left no male issue, as Sir John de Lodbroke died in 1385 seised of a manor of Tanworth, leaving a daughter Alice, aged 30. She was then the wife of Lewis Cook, or Cardigan, who disputed the possession of the Lodbroke estates with William Catesby's son John.
[It is alleged by Baker that] Alice had been disinherited by her father, Sir John de Ladbroke, the son-in-law of Hawise de Keynes, for marrying Lewis Cardigan who was his cook.
Who is this:
... daughter of John Lodbroke knight and cousin and heir of William de Keynes knight, to Robert Andrew of ..
(Calendar of the Close rolls 1413-1422. p196.)
In 1300 Henry de Lodbroc, grandson of the previous Henry, granted a life-tenancy of half a virgate to Robert Ede of Harbury and Alice his wife, for 5s. rent and suit of court. (fn. 68) The same Henry settled the manor, for 10 marks sterling annually, on his son John and his wife Hawise, daughter of Sir Robert de Daventry, (fn. 69) in 1323. (fn. 70) Two years later he granted the life-tenancy of another half-virgate, formerly held by John Page, to Thomas le Prestis and Alice his wife for 5s., (fn. 71) and in 1326 John de Lodbroc granted a life-interest in 5 marks rent to his father-in-law. (fn. 72) In 1328 he granted land and a mill to Simon the miller and his wife Margery for life, which property had in the same year been granted to him by John son of John Wylecokes of Harbury. (fn. 73) Another life-tenancy was made by John de Lodbroc in 1335 of a house, croft, and 1½ acres of land at le Euednest in Harbury to John le Ferur and Joan his wife; these had been held by Henry Attestretusende, and the rent was 4s. and a heriot at death. (fn. 74) In 1350 the manor was settled on Hawise, John de Lodbroc's widow, with remainder to John's son Thomas and Alice daughter of William Catesby and their heirs.
