General Notes: Husband - Waltheof (Waldevus) II , Earl of Northumberland, Huntingdon & Northampton

OCCUPATION: Earl of Huntingdon, Northampton and Northumberland, son of Sigurd, Earl of North umberland, and Aelflaed, dau. of Aldred of Bernicia

DEATH: Beheaded by order of William the Conqueror Beheaded at St. Giles HillOn the history o f the Earldom of Huntingdon:

The first post-Conquest Earl of Huntingdon appears to have been Waltheof, son of Siward Ear l of Northumberland and indeed Siward's successor in the latter Earldom as well. Waltheof wa s later beheaded for conspiring against William the Conqueror. [Burke's Peerage]
------------------------------------
The county which gives designation to this earldom of Huntingdon was, according to Dr. Heylin , a thickly wooded forest until the reign of the 2nd Henry, when the timber was first cleare d away; the chief town, from the celebrity of the forest as a chase, was called Huntingtown , which soon became abbreviated into Huntington, or Huntingdon. The Earldom of Huntingdom wa s conferred by William the Conqueror upon Waltheof (son of Syward, the Saxon Earl of Northumb erland), who had m. the dau. of that monarch's sister, by the mother's side, Judith. He was a lso Earl of Northampton, and of Northumberland, but conspiring against the Normans, he was be headed in 1073 at Winchester, leaving issue, Maud and Judith. [Sir Bernard Burke, Dormant, Ab eyant, Forfeited, and Extinct Peerages, Burke's Peerage, Ltd., London, 1883, p. 467-8, St. Li z, Earls of Huntingdon]
------------------------------------
Waltheof was the last of the Old English earls to survive under William I, his execution fo r treason in 1076 marking a significant stage in the aristocratic and tenurial revolution whi ch followed 1066. Younger son of Siward, the Danish earl of Northumbria (1041-55) and Aelflae d, daughter of Aldred, earl of Northumbria, Waltheof received an earldom consisting of the sh ires of Huntingdon, Bedford, Northampton, Rutland, and Cambridge in 1065. As one of the few E nglish magnates not from the Godwin faction, he accepted and was accepted by William I, witne ssing royal charters and remaining loyal to the new regime until 1069 when he joined with th e Danes in their invasion of Northumbria. He was prominent in their capture of York, hoping , no doubt, to be restored to his father's position. This opportunism is perhaps more charact eristic of English magnate reactions to the political turmoil of 1065-70 than any supposed na tional feeling. However, the revolt and invasion were defeated by William's winter campaign o f 1069-70. It is a measure of William's insecurity that when Waltheof submitted in 1070 he wa s restored to royal favour and, in 1072, added the earldom of Northumbria to his holdings. T o bind him more tightly to the Norman dispensation, William gave him his niece Judith in marr iage. But in 1075, Waltheof was implicated in the largely French revolt led by Ralph, earl o f Norfolk, and Roger, earl of Hereford. Despite his lack of military action, his confession , apparent contrition and the support of Archbishop Lanfranc, Waltheof was executed on 31 Ma y 1076.

The king's motives are obscure. Waltheof was the only prominent Englishman to be executed i n the reign. Perhaps his removal was part of William's justifiably nervous response to the pr oblem of controlling Northumbria. It may have made sense to take the chance to remove a poten tial --- and proven --- focus of northern discontent. Yet Waltheof's heirs were not harried , one daughter, Matilda, marrying David I of Scotland (1042-53), and another Ralph IV of Tosn y, a leading Norman baron.

Waltheof is a significant reminder that the period around 1066 was transitional, with no nece ssarily definite beginnings or endings. Waltheof adapted to the new order, falling foul, it s eems, of the ambitions and schemes of others, not least of parvenus Frenchmen. He married int o the new elite, yet embodied the old. Heir to both English and Anglo-Danish traditions, it w as he who completed one of the most celebrated of Anglo-Saxon blood-feuds. In 1016, Uchtred , earl of Northumbria was murdered by a northern nobleman called Thurbrand. He was, in turn , killed by Uchtred's son and successor, Ealdred, who was himself slain by Thurbrand's son, C arl. Waltheof's mother was Ealdred's daughter and he avenged his great-grandfather and grandf ather by massacring a number of Carl's sons.

Waltheof was buried at Crowland Abbey where, as did many martyrs to royal policy in the middl e ages, he found posthumous fame in a cult which, by the mid-twelfth century, was veneratin g him as a saint. Yet his career in the north shows that not far beneath the measured tones o f Norman propagandists or the efficient gloss of English bureaucratic procedures simmered th e violence of Dark Age epic.

CONFLICT: Ancestral Roots of Sixty Colonists Who Came to New England between 1623 and 1650 , Frederick Lewis Weis, Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 1992 (FATHER maybe her mothers fir st husband [Enguerrand II, Count of Ponthieu]After the execution of Waltheof, Earl of Hunting don, King William offered Judith, his niece, the deceased earl's widow, in marriage to Simo n St. Liz, a noble Norman, but the lady peremptorily rejected the alliance, owing, Dugdale sa ys, to St. Liz's halting in one leg, which refusal so displeased the Conqueror that he immedi ately seized upon the castle and honour of Huntingdon, which the countess held in dower, expo sing herself and her dau. to a state of privation and obscurity in the Isle of Ely and othe r places, while he bestowed upon the said Simon St. Liz the town of Northampton and the whol e hundred of Falkeley, then valued at 40 per annum, to provide shoes for his horses. St. Li z thus diappointed in obtaining the hand of the Countess of Huntingdon, made his addresses wi th greater success to her elder dau., the Lady Maud, who became his wife, when William confer red upon the said Simon de St. Liz, the Earldoms of Huntingdon and Northampton. [Sir Bernar d Burke, Dormant, Abeyant, Forfeited, and Extinct Peerages, Burke's Peerage, Ltd., London, 18 83, p. 467-8, St. Liz, Earls of Huntingdon]

NOTE: The parentage of Judith of Lens has come under critical study since the early 1970's, w hen Enguerrand II was thought by some to be her father. The currently acceptable parentage am ong most scholars is as stated, i.e., Lambert of Boulogne. [Roderick W. Stuart, Royalty for C ommoners, 3rd ed., Genealogical Publishing Company, Baltimore MD, 1998]
