    • Alternate death: 1289

    Notes:

    In this 2010 post to SGM, Douglas Richardson notes that most historical reference works before 1900 placed this Eudes la Zouche a generation later, as a younger son of Alan la Zouche and his wife Ellen de Quincy. Richardson further notes that some descendants of this Eudes la Zouche included Quincy arms among their quarterings, presumably because they believed themselves to be descended from Ellen. But Complete Peerage volume 12 (2) (1959) places Eudes as a younger brother, not a son, of Alan la Zouche, like him a son of Sir Roger la Zouche and his wife Margaret. Citing a 1262 Patent Rolls entry that refers to "Eudo la Zouche, brother of the said Alan," and noting that the record shows Eudes to have been continually active from 1251 to 1279, Richardson goes on to argue that Complete Peerage was in fact correct.

    Note also that the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography ("Zouche [de la Zouche] family, magnates") agrees with this placement of Eudes la Zouche.

    "As a younger son Eudo sought advancement through royal service, which he had already entered before 1254 when he escorted Queen Eleanor to join Henry III in Gascony. He associated with the Lord Edward in the late 1250s when he acted as witness to the prince's charters. Furthermore, during disturbances in the Welsh marches in 1262 he was entrusted with the defence of Edward's castles in Cheshire. Eudo's continuing support for the royal cause in the barons' war is suggested by his summons in arms to the king at Windsor in 1263. Royal service notwithstanding it was Eudo's marriage in 1268 to Millicent (d. 1299), widow of John de Montalt and sister and coheir of Sir George de Cantilupe (1251–1273), which established the family's landed fortune." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography]

    Regarding the date of his marriage to Millicent de Cantelow, Patricia Junkin says here that he "was married to Millicent Cantilupo by 1262 when he is given livery of her lands, including Baseford."

    In a post to SGM on 22 Feb 2017, Douglas Richardson notes that "Eudes la Zouche and his brother, Henry la Zouche, served as manucaptors (or sureties) for their niece, Joyce, daughter and heiress of William la Zouche, in 1272-3. Reference: LTR Memoranda Rolls, E368no46, image 2128 (available at http://aalt.law.uh.edu/E1/E368no46/IMG_2128.htm). For evidence that Henry la Zouche was the brother of William la Zouche, see Jenkinson & Formoy, Select Cases in the Exchequer of Pleas (Selden Soc. 48) (1932): 80–81."

    This couple were ancestors of President Rutherford B. Hayes.

    "William de Briouze, s. and h. by 1st wife. He m. Eve, da. and in her issue coh. of William (Marshal), Earl of Strigul and Pembroke, by Isabel, suo jure Countess of Pembroke. He d. 1 May 1230, being hanged by Llewelyn abovenamed. His widow d. before 1246." [Complete Peerage I:22, as corrected in Volume XIV.]

    Hanged by Llewelyn, Prince of Wales, after intrigues with Llewelyn's wife.

    "He was discovered in Joan's chambers, accused of being her lover, and promptly and publicly hanged. While the story that William and Joan were lovers has been generally accepted, the Annals of Margam (in T. Gale, ed , Historiae Britannicae et Anglicanae Scriptores XX (Oxford, 1687), 2-18, [anno] MCCXXX) implies that the 'intimacy' was devised by Llywelyn to avenge himself on William for political injuries inflicted not only by William but by the entire Braose family; the execution was hailed by the Welsh as a vindication of a blood-feud against the Braoses dating from at least 1176. Indeed, shortly after the execution Llywelyn wrote to William's widow Eva and to William Marshal, Earl of Pembroke, Eva's brother, stating, in effect, that so far as he was concerned, the intended marriage between Llywelyn's son Dafydd and Eva's daughter Isabella could go forward as planned, and that he could not have prevented the Welsh magnates from taking their vengeance. See J. Goronwy Edwards, Calendar of Ancient Correspondence concerning Wales (Board of Celtic Studies of the University of Wales, History and Law Series, 2)(Cardiff, 1935), pp 51-52, nos. XI.56a, 56b. The marriage in fact took place three months later." [William Addams Reitwiesner, "The Children of Joan, Princess of North Wales," The Genealogist 1:80, Spring 1980.]
