|Hugh II is the 7th great grandfather of William of Montacute. 3
|Birth||circa 1020||Hugh II de was born circa 1020 at Montfort-sur-Risle, Eure, Normandy, France.1
|1020||Some of the
sites on the internet say that his father was Hugh and that could be.
But those site also say that the father was the one that came to
England with William the Conqueror and that is not likely given the
dates. Turton and Burke also given differing opinions as to who actually came to England with William the Conqueror.
|Marriage||Hugh II de Montfort married Alice de Beauffou, daughter of Richard de Beauffou and Emme de Bayeau.
Hugh de Montfort had, by his second wife, a dau. who m. Gilbert de Gant. (Sir Bernard Burke, Dormant, Abeyant, Forfeited and Extinct Peerages, Burke's Peerage Ltd, London, England, 1883, p. 377, Montfort, Barons Montfort) Therefore using this as a reference we are to conclude that Hugh had a wife before Alice. Who was she?1,2
Hugh de Montfort, had issue by his first wife, two sons, viz., Robert, and Hugh. Hugh II de Montfort had, besides these sons, a dau. by his 2nd wife, who m. Gilbert de Gant, and had issue, Hugh, living 1124, who, on account of his mother being so great an heiress, assumed the name of Montfort; and Ada, m. to Simon, Earl of Huntingdon. [Sir Bernard Burke, Dormant, Abeyant, Forfeited and Extinct Peerages, Burke's Peerage Ltd, London, England, 1883, p. 377, Montfort, Barons Montfort]
|1066||Hugh de Montfort, commonly called Hugh with a
Beard, son of Thurstan de Bastenburgh, accompanied William the
Conqueror into England and aided that prince's triumph at Hastings, for
which eminent service he obtained divers fair lordships and, at the
time of the General Survey, was possessor of twenty-eight in Kent, with
a large portion of Romney Marsh; sixteen in Essex; fifty-one in
Suffolk; and nineteen in Norfolk. This gallant soldier eventually lost
his life in a duel with Walcheline de Ferrers, and was s. by his son,
Hugh de Montford. [Sir Bernard Burke, Dormant, Abeyant, Forfeited and
Extinct Peerages, Burke's Peerage Ltd, London, England, 1883, p. 377,
Montfort, Barons Montfort].2 This information does not indicate WHICH HUGH they were talking about and the dats given do NOT fit.
|1066||He may have been one of the companions of William
the Conqueror. He was the commander at the battle of Mortemer in 1054.
Also he was the Govenor of the Castle of Dover.......but no years are
Hugh de Montfort-sur-Risle accompanied William the Conquerer at the Battle of Hastings in 1066, receiving lands in Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk and Kent for his services. He was one of the barons entrusted with administering justice in England.1
