    Notes:

    Also called William le Blund.

    "The first Lord Mountjoy descended, through younger sons in several generations, from William le Blund (Blundus-fair-haired), who married Isabel, widow of Henry Lovet, of Elmley Lovet and Hampton Lovet, co. Worcester which Henry died under age about 1256. William le Blund and his brother Walter were accused in August 1265, before the commissioners appointed under the Dictum of Kenilworth, of unlawful violence at Quinton, Northants. Tradition says that the abovesaid Isabel was a Beauchamp. The record of the assizes held at Worcester, 1275, contains several references to William le Blund. He was there pledge for [his stepson] John Lovet, and (since there is no differentiating description of either) is presumably the William le Blund who, was son and heir of John le Blund, son and heir of Walter le Blund, was found to be heir to lands in Doverdale (a parish adjoining Hampton Lovet) which had belonged to Amice, daughter of the said Walter. The above said William and Isabel, in addition to their Worcestershire property, held the manor of Belton in Rutland, and there seems to have been a close connection between this family and the family of the same name in Hanslope, Bucks. William le Blund appears to have died in the Spring of 1280. His widow was living in February 1322/3." [Complete Peerage IX:329-30]

    Notes:

    "This assumes the identity of Isabel, wife of William le Blount, as the widow of Henry Lovet [...] CP only states it as a possibility, but Croke provides other support for this identification, including the use of Beauchamp arms by Isabel's son Piers le Blount." [Nathaniel L. Taylor, "Cassandra Elizabeth Taylor's royal descents."]
