    Earl of Kent. Chief justiciar of England and Ireland. "[H]as been wrongly said to have been the son of a brother of William fitz Aldhelm, steward of Henry II. It is possible, though doubtful, that his father was the Walter whose daughter Adelina, with her son William, owed 40 marks in the pipe roll of 26 Henry II (1179/80) for recognition of their right to a knight's fee at Burgh, Norfolk. His mother's name was Alice, for in his grant (c.1230) of the advowson of the church of Oulton to the prior of Walsingham, Hubert stated that the gift was 'for the soul of my mother Alice who rests in the church at Walsingham' (BL, Cotton MS Nero E.vii, fol. 91). His elder brother was William de Burgh (d. 1206) who, in 1185, accompanied the king's youngest son, John, to Ireland, where he eventually became lord of Connacht; William's son would later refer to Hubert as uncle." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography]

    Before his fall, one of the most powerful men in England in the reigns of both John and his successor Henry III. During the childhood of the latter, De Burgh was for a time regent in all but name.

Generation: 2

  1. 2.  Walter de Burgh was born in in of Burgh near Aylsham, Norfolk, England.

    Notes:

    Richardson gives this Walter de Burgh as definitely the father of William de Burgh and Hubert de Burgh. Boyer says that William de Burgh and Hubert de Burgh were "probably" brothers and that they "may have been" sons of this Walter; further, that William "was not identical with William Fitz Adelm, Justiciar of Ireland under King Henry II."

    The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography says that William and Hubert were definitely brothers ("William's son would later refer to Hubert as uncle") and that their mother is known to have been named Alice because "in his grant (c. 1230) of the advowson of the church of Oulton to the prior of Walsingham, Hubert stated that the gift was 'for the soul of my mother Alice who rests in the church at Walsingham.'" However, the ODNB says only that it is "possible, though doubtful" that their father was Walter de Burgh of Burgh in Norfolk; and they also note that Hubert "has been wrongly said to have been the son of a brother of William fitz Aldhelm, steward of Henry II."

    Richardson notes the same evidence indicating that William and Hubert's mother was named Alice. He also gives them two further brothers. Thomas de Burgh, knight of Upper Arley, Staffordshire (now Worcestershire), married Nesta de Cockfield and died in or before March 1227 without issue. Geoffrey de Burgh was Treasurer of the Exchequer and Bishop of Ely, and died without issue 17 Dec 1228. Further according to Richardson, in a charter recorded in Norfolk Portion of the Chartulary of the Priory of St. Pancras of Lewes (Norfolk Records Society 12, 1939), the manor of the late Thomas de Burgh at Upper Arley was granted by the king to his brother, Hubert de Burgh. This charter calls the late Thomas son of Walter de Burgh, and was witnessed by Geoffrey de Burgh. Geoffrey evidently also served as witness for other charters made by Thomas de Burgh in Thomas's lifetime. This seems like enough evidence to establish that William and Hubert's father was named Walter, whether or not he was the Walter de Burgh of Burgh near Aylsham.

    Walter married Alice. Alice was buried in Walsingham, Norfolk, England. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
