de Morvill, Moreville
The exact relation - if any - of the early de Morville has yet to be established with various Hugh de Morevilles getting mixed up. The following seems to reconcile differences as far as possible at this time.TCP Multon reports:
Mo25-1. Simon de Morvill (Simon is reported by some web sites to have died in 1140 and to have been son of Hugh de Moreville Mo27 who came into England at the time of the Conquest.)
m Ada Engaine dau of William Engaine by Eustacie
Mo25-1-1. Hugh de Morvill of Burgh forester of Cumberland (He may have been the Hugh d 1202 or 1204 who was one of the murderers of Thomas Becket. That Hugh was lord of Knaresborough which was supposedly obtained by this Hugh through his marriage to Heloise. Although that Hugh of Knaresborough was son of Hugh, Constable of Scotland see below. Knaresborough and Burgh are in the same region.
m Heloise de Stuteville dau of Robert de Stuteville
Mo25-1-1-1 Ada de Morvill d after 1240
m1 m1 Richard de Lucie of Egremont d c1214
m2 before 10.03.1217/8 Sir Thomas de Multon, Sheriff of Cumberland d 1240
Mo25-1-1-2 Joan de Morville
m Richard Gernun
Consistently shown by a wide range of web sites are Hugh and Beatrice, parents of Richard who, by Avice de Lancaster, was father of the Elena who married Roland of Galloway. TSP Galloway identifies that Elena as daughter of Richard, and brother of William, who were both Constables of Scotland. Hence, it is assumed that the following Hugh was the Hugh who became Constable of Scotland for King David I r 1124-1153.
Hugh de Morville, Lord of Cunningham and Lauderdale 1162 was a Norman knight who made his fortune in the service of David fitz Malcolm, Prince of the Cumbrians 1113-24 and King of Scots 1124-53.
Mo25 Hugh de Moreville, Constable of Scotland b c1105, d 1162 After the death of Edward, Constable of Scotland, almost certainly in 1138 at the Battle of the Standard, Hugh was given this position. He may have the son Simon Mo26 or brother and uncle of Mo25-1
m Beatrice de Beauchamp dau of Payne de Beauchamp of Bedford David endowed Hugh with the estates of Bozeat and Whissendine from his Huntingdon earldom,[4] which, since they are attested as his wife Beatrice's dowry, David presumably arranged by granting Hugh the wife who was herself inheriting them - this is a usual pattern of medieval rewards to lords: the reard comes in form of inheritance of an heiress whom the favored knight marries and the baronies of Lauderdale and perhaps later Cunningham in Scotland.[5] During David's take-over of northern England after 1136, Hugh was also given the lordship of Appleby - essentially northern Westmorland.[6]
Mo24. Richard de Moreville, Constable of Scotland d 1189
m Avice de Lancaster d 1191, dau of William, lord of Kendal
Mo23-1. William de Moreville, Constable of Scotland dsp 1196
Mo23-2. Elena de Moreville d 11.06.1217
m Roland, Lord of Galloway, Constable of Scotland d 19.12.1200
Mo23 y de Morville m x and hadMargaret de Morville who married Sir William de Wessyngton d 1290 if she was not the daughter or granddaughter of aforesaid William.
Various web sites show Hugh and Beatrice as parents also of ...
2. Maud de Moreville The Lordship of Westmorland passed to Hugh's sister some sources say niece, Maud, in 1174; she held the lands until Hugh's expiation. Hugh must have been confirmed dead before 1202 or 03, when his English lands were in the hands of co-heiresses.
m William de Vipont d 1202
