  I.1. SIR GEOFFREY DE GENEVILLE, or GEYNVILLE (JOINVILLE), SEIGNEUR DE VAUCOULEURS in Champagne, a younger son of Simon, SEIGNEUR DE JOINVILLE, SENESCHAL OF CHAMPAGNE (who died about April 1233), by his 2nd wife, Beatrix, daughter of Estienne, dit Estevenon, COUNT of BURGUNDY AND AUXONNE. He was born in or after 1226. He occurs as Seigneur de Vaucouleurs in July 1241, and was still in France, 9 March 1250/1. Soon afterwards he came to England. He married 4 August 1252 at Woodstock, Maud, widow of Piers De GENEVRE (who died in 1249, before 29 June), and younger daughter and coheir of Gilbert DE LACY, of Ewyas Lacy, Co. Hereford, by Isabel, daughter of Hugh (LE BIGOD), EARL OF NORFOLK, which Gilbert, who died v.p. in 1230, was son and heir apparent of Walter DE LACY, Lord of Meath. On 8 August 1252 the King granted to Geoffrey and Maud his wife, and her heirs, all the liberties and free customs in Meath, which Walter de Lacy, grandfather of Maud,, had held: on 19 September 1254 the King granted that they might issue their own writs in Meath, according to the law and custom of Ireland, and, 21 September following, they had livery of the castle of Trim and a moiety of 40 marcates of land, as the inheritance of Maud, on condition that the castle should be surrendered to the King at his pleasure. In 1255 Geoffrey was in Gascony with Edward, the King's son. By charter, dated the vigil of St. Barnabas 10 June 126o, he partitioned the barony of Weobley with John de Verdon. With Robert Walerand, he was appointed, io September 1267, to treat of peace with Llewelyn, and, 20 September following, was empowered to swear on the King's behalf to any peace that should be made. In 1272, as one of the milites banerii of the King of Navarre (Count of Champagne), he was summoned by the King of France against the Count of Foix. He was in the Holy Land with Edward L but returned before him, and was made justiciar of Ireland in September 1273: he held the office till 17 June 1276. In 1280 he was one of the commissioners sent to Paris to treat concerning peace between France and Castile. He was with the King in Wales in 1282. In 1283 he and his wife gave all their lands in England and Wales to their son, Piers. He was sent in 1290 on a mission to the Pope to arrange matters for the aid of the Holy Land. On 15 June 1294 the liberty of Trim, which, for certain causes, had been taken into the King's hand, was restored to him, to hold during pleasure: this liberty was, soon afterwards, again taken into the King's hand for Geoffrey's contempt in not executing the King's mandate concerning Nicholas Bacun, a prisoner in the gaol of the liberty, but it was again restored to him, 2 May 1295, on account of his good services in the Army of Wales. He was a commissioner on the King's part, 12 August 1297, to settle the difficulties with the Constable and the Marshal, which resulted in the King appointing him marshal, and Thomas de Berkeley constable, of the army which the King took to Flanders on 22 August. He was appointed to treat with the envoys of the King of France concerning peace, 9 November 1298 and 12 May 1299, and was one of the magnates representing the English King at the treaty of Montreuil, Friday before St. John the Baptist [19 June] 1299. He was one of the commissioners sent to Rome in 1300 to negotiate concerning peace between England and France. He was summoned for Military Service, from 6 August 1252 to 17 May 1297, and to Parliament from 6 February 1298/9 to 3 November 1306, by writs directed Galfrido de Genevill', Geynvill', Gienvill', or the like, whereby he is held to have become LORD GENEVILLE. On 12 November 1302 the liberty of Trim and Meath, which had been taken into the King's hand for contempt, and restored to Geoffrey and Maud his wife, for a term, was granted to them for a further term. She died 11 April 1304. On 24 December 1307 he obtained licence to surrender to Roger de Morterner and Joan his wife (granddaughter of Geoffrey) the lands and tenements in Ireland which he held by the courtesy after the death of Maud his wife, and which at his death would revert to the same Roger and Joan, Joan being heir of Maud. In October or November 1308, Roger and Joan took seizin of Meath, and Geoffrey entered the House of the Friars Preachers at Trim, died 21 October 1314, and was buried there.
