    Notes:

    "Amongst the most eminent Norman families in the train of the Conqueror was that of Beauchamp, and amongst those that shared most liberally in the spoils of the conquest was Hugh de Beauchamp, the companion in arms of the victorious Norman, who obtained grants to a very great extent from his triumphant chief, as he appears at the general survey to be possessed of large estates in Hertford, Buckingham, and Bedfordshires, was the founder of this illustrious house in England. This Hugh had issue, Simon, who d. s.p.; Payne, ancestor of the Beauchamps of Bedford, that barony having been conferred upon him by William Rufus; Walter, but some doubts have been thrown upon the question of his having been son of Hugh, Sir H. Nicholas stating him to have been 'supposed of the same family'; Milo, of Eaton, co. Bedford; Adeline, m. to Walter le Espec, Lord of Kirkham and Helmesley, co. of York." [Burke's Peerage, and cum grano salis as usual. There's no evidence that the first Hugh de Beauchamp was a "companion in arms" to the Conqueror. For another, at least according to the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Simon de Beauchamp doesn't seem to have dsp'd.]

    Hugh married Maud de Taillebois. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
