    Sir Edmund Deincourt, of Blankney and Branston, co. Lincoln, Holmesfield and Elmton, co. Derby, Granby, Notts, Duddington, Northants, &c., s. and h. of Sir John Deincourt, of Blankney, &c. (who d. before 14 Oct. 1257), by Agnes, da. of Sir Geoffrey de Neville, of Raby, co. Durham. The King took his homage, though he was still a minor, on or before 8 Jan. 1268/9. He was in the Army of Wales in 1277, 1282, and 1294, and in the Army of Scotland in 1299. He was sum. for Military Service from 16 Apr. (1291) 19 Edw. I to 1 May (1325) 18 Edw. II, to attend the King wherever he might be, 8 June (1294) 22 Edw. I, to attend the Coronation, 18 Jan. (1307/8) 1 Edw. II, to Councils from 8 Jan. (1308/9) 2 Edw. II to 20 Feb. (1324/5) 18 Edw. II, and to Parl. from 6 Feb. (1298/9) 27 Edw. I to 3 Dec. (1326) 20 Edw. II, by writs directed Edmundo Deyncurt or Deyncourt, whereby he is held to have become Lord Deincourt. He did homage for his lands in Burnby, co. York, to three successive Archbishops of York, 1299, 18 July 1300, and 3 May 1310. As Edmundus de Eyncourt dominus de Thurgerton, he took part in the Barons' Letter to the Pope, 12 Feb. 1300/1. He was one of those ordered, 3 Sep. 1312, to prohibit the Earl of Lancaster and others from repairing to the King with horses and arms. By a fine, levied in the octaves of St. Michael II Edw. II, he conveyed the manor and soke of Blankney, with the advowson of the chapel there, the manors of Branston, Mere, and Granby, a messuage in the bail of Lincoln, the advowsons of the Priory of Thurgarton and the Hospital of St. Leonard at Stoke, and the manors of Holmesfield and Elmton, save a messuage, &c., in Elmton, to himself for life: rem. to William s. of John Deincourt, rem. to John br. of the same William, in successive tail general: rem. to his own right heirs. By another fine, of the same date, he conveyed the said messuage, &c., in Elmton, to himself for life: rem. to Hamon de Mascy and Joan his wife [late the wife of Edmund s. of John Deincourt], for her life: rem. to Isabel da. of Edmund s. of John Deincourt, in tail male: rem. to his own right heirs. He m. Isabel, da. of Sir Reynold de Mohun, of Dunster, Somerset, by his 2nd wife, Isabel, da. of William (de Ferrers), Earl of Derby. He d. 6 Jan. 1326/7.

    *****

    Note that despite CP's assertion that he married "Isabel, da. of Sir Reynold de Mohun, of Dunster, Somerset, by his 2nd wife, Isabel, da. of William (de Ferrers), Earl of Derby," there is no clear evidence that this Isabel was the mother of his children. Moreover, Royal Ancestry doesn't even list an Isabel among the children of Reynold de Mohun and Elizabeth de Ferrers.

  1. 8.  Oliver II Deincourt (son of Oliver I Deincourt and Amabel).

    Notes:

    "Had livery in 1217." [Complete Peerage IV:118, note (c).]

    Oliver married Nichole. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 9.  Nichole

    Notes:

    CP IV:118, footnote (c), regarding John Deincourt (d. bef 14 Oct 1257), father of Sir Edmund Deincourt: "This John had livery of his lands, 19 Sep. 1246, and was s. and h. of Oliver (who had livery in 1217, by Nichole, to whom Nichole (Ist da. and coh. of Richard de la Haye, and wife of Gerard de Caunville) gave Duddington in free marriage".

    VCH Northamptonshire volume 2, page 561, says "On the death of Gerard de Camville about 1215, Duddington, according to an entry in the Pipe Roll, was granted to his widow during the king's pleasure; there is also a royal command that Lady Nichola should have seisin of Duddington, but it does not state her tenure. She granted the manor, about 1230, to Oliver Deyncourt, who had married Nichola, either her neice or grandchild."

    In other words, while we don't know the parents of this Nichole, she may have been a grandchild of Gerard de Camville and Nichole de la Haye, and she was certainly descended from Richard de la Haye and Maud de Vernon -- as grandchild if she was Nichole's neice, and as great-grandchild if she was her grandchild.
