    BARONY OF MONTAGU (III)

    EARLDOM OF SALISBURY (VI, 1)

    WILLIAM (DE MONTAGU), LORD MONTAGU, 2nd but 1st surviving son and heir, of William, 2nd LORD MONTAGU (under the writ of 29 December 1299), by Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Piers DE MONTFORTof Beaudesert, co. Warwick, by Maud, daughter and heir of Matthew DE LA MARE, was born at Cassington, Oxon, and was aged 17-18 in May 1320, having succeeded his father, 18 October 1319. In September 1325 he was going overseas with the King, being then presumably the King's yeoman. Knighted in 1326. Summoned for service in Scotland 1327. In May 1329 he attended the King to do homage at Amiens, and in June began his successful service as a diplomatist. In July following he had a grant in consideration of labours daily endured by him, dwelling at the King's side. He was prime mover in the seizure of Mortimer, 1330, and was summoned to Parliament as LORD MONTAGU, 18 February 1331. In April 1331 he accompanied the King on his short secret journey to France; in September he held a great tournament in 'Chepe.' One of the keepers of Somerset 1332, under the Act of 6 Edward III, and later commissioner of the peace. In that year he became lord of Lundy Island by purchase. In 1333 he was in command of the siege of Berwick. From March 1333/4 to May 1337 he was joint keeper, with Henry de Ferrers, of the Channel Islands. He was with the King in Scotland, 1335 and 1336. In January 1336/7 appointed Admiral from Thames' mouth westwards. On 16 March he was created in Parliament EARL OF SALISBURY. In October he was appointed joint commander in Scotland, and a commissioner to treat for a peace; in December sole commissioner to deal with John of the Isles for a treaty. He accompanied the King to Flanders, July 1338; on 20 September, at Antwerp, he was made Marshal of England for life. He was largely responsible for the negotiations, diplomatic and financial, with England's possible allies and supporters, in 1338-39, including the pawning of the royal crowns. In September 1339 a practical measure of relief, for which the Earl had long pressed, was granted to debtors of under 10 to the Exchequer, to persons sued for escapes of prisoners, &c. In December of that year he remained as hostage to the Duke of Lorraine, while the King returned to England. Soon after Easter, 1340, he and the Earl of Suffolk, in a too adventurous pursuit of the French, were taken prisoners inside the gate of Lille. In August 1343 he went, with the Earl of Derby, on an embassy to Castile, where he is said to have fought the Moors.

    He married (in or before 1327) Katharine, youngest of the 3 daughters of William (DE GRANDISON), 1st LORD GRANDISON, by Sibyl, daughter and coheir of John (TREGOZ), LORD TREGOZ, and in her issue, coheir of her nephew Thomas, 4th Lord Grandison. He died 30 January 1343/4, and was buried at Bisham. His widow, who made a vow of chastity, and had dower in all his possessions, including the 20 annuity, died 23 April 1349. [Complete Peerage XI:385-8, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    Sir William de Montacute, 2nd baron, d. in Gascony in 1319 and was s. by his eldest surviving son, William de Montacute, 3rd baron, who, the next year, although in minority, obtained a grant from the king of the wardship of his own lands, and in the 16th Edward II [1323], making proof of his age and doing his homage, had livery thereof. In three years afterwards he was made a knight of the Bath, and had an allowance of robes for that solemnity as a banneret. In the 4th Edward III [1331], his lordship was deputed ambassador to the Pope, with Bartholomew de Burghersh, to return thanks to his holiness for confirming a bull of Pope Honorius IV, touching certain favours, by him granted, to the monks at Westminster; moreover, before the end of the year, a parliament being then held at Nottingham, he was the principal person who apprehended Roger de Mortimer, Earl of March, in the night-time within the Queen's lodgings there, and sent him prisoner to London, where he was soon afterwards executed for high treason. For this service, Lord Montacute had a grant in tail, to himself and Katherine, his wife, of the estate of Sherburne, co. Dorset, and of several other manors in Hants, Berkshire, Bucks, and Cambridgeshire; part of the possessions of the attainted Earl of March. He was summoned to parliament from 5 June, 1331, to 29 November, 1336. In the 8th Edward III [1335], his lordship was constituted governor of the Isles of Guernsey, Jersey, &c., and the next year made constable of the Tower of London.

    About this time, Lord Montacute acquired great distinction in the Scottish wars, but at the expense of one of his eyes, which he lost in the campaign. In the 10th Edward III [1337], he was appointed admiral of the king's fleet, westward, and 16 March, 11th Edward III [1338], in consideration of his numerous gallant achievements, he was advanced by charter, in full parliament held at London, to the title and dignity of Earl of Salisbury, to hold to him and his heirs, with a grant of 20 out of the profits of that county. Shortly after this he was joined in command of the army in Scotland with Richard, Earl of Arundel; and pursued his victorious career as well in Scotland as in France for the two ensuing years, when in storming the town of L'Isle, he had the misfortune to be made prisoner with Robert de Ufford, Earl of Suffolk, and conveyed in fetters, amidst the acclamations of the places through which he passed, to Paris, where the French king would have put him to death but for the interference of the King of Bohemia. His lordship and his fellow captive, the Earl of Suffolk, were soon after, however, exchanged. With his liberty, he recommenced his martial career and won fresh laurels on the French soil. In the 16th Edward III [1343], having conquered the Isle of Man, he was crowned King thereof by his royal master. His lordship m. Catherine, dau. of William, Lord Grandison, and had issue, William, his successor; John (Sir), a distinguished warrior; Robert; Sibyl, m. to Edmund, son of Edmund, Earl of Arundel; Phillippa, m. to Roger Mortimer, Earl of March; Elizabeth, m. 1st, to Giles, Lord Badlesmere, and 2ndly, to Hugh le Despencer; Anne, m. to John, son of Roger, Lord Grey.

    This great earl d. in 1343, of bruises received in a tilting at Windsor, and was s. by his eldest son, William de Montacute, 2nd Earl of Salisbury.
