Sir Thomas de Mandeville
Married Elizabeth Wanton. Children were Thomas, Alice, and Joane.
Thomas died in 1399 under-age. The two sisters then became co-heirs. (Under English law, all went to the eldest son. If no sons survived, all the daughters then divided the property equally).
Alice had for her share Black Notley, Stapleford Thaney and Bromfield. She married first Helmingius Legate, Esq., Sheriff of Essex and Hertfordshire in 1401 and 1408, and had by him Thomas who did not succeed to any of her estates. Morant's History of Essex, says, "Most probably he died before his mother, as I observe under Bromfield (another of Alice?s estates)." This manor of Black Notley, with that of Chatham Hall were intailed upon Alice and the heirs of her body by H. Legat (Inquis. 8 Henry V). The arms of Legat were ermine, a lion rampant gules. Alice?s second husband was Roger or Richard Spice. He died March 11, 1459 and lies buried in the church of Black Notley (no tomb in 1971). She died in 1420. Spice married Tyffany.
Joane Mandeville, Alice?s sister, first married John Barry, then William Pirton of Ipswich. Alice?s property was Bromfield, Black Notley, Chatham Hall in Great Waltham, Eastwick in Hertfordshire, and the advowson of the Stapleford Tanv church. All this property went to Roger Spice and her son Clement Spice, without any notice of Thomas Legat.
