?Lady of Costow??
Matilda, wife of Hugh II de Boclande was widow of Piers de Lutegareshale and mother of Robert and Geoffrey fitz Piers.
The Boclande family of Buckland, Herts. is correctly covered by Keats-Rohan, except for the wife of Hugh II, whom she names as Matilda de Mandeville, which seems to have arisen from a misreading of the pedigree in CP v.V, following p.116. Moreover if she had been a Mandeville there would have been serious implications of consanguinity in immediate generations.
Matilda, wife of Hugh II de Boclande was widow of Piers de Lutegareshale and mother of Robert and Geoffrey fitz Piers. Her identity is unknown but she appears to be of Stuteville/Glanville descent.
It is unlikely that Matilda was daughter of Geoffrey de Mandeville [d 1144, [qv] [as ?Magna Carta Shureties?states.]. If she were Geoffrey?s daughter, this would imply two marriages between second cousins in the following generation. The relationship as stated seems to arise from a misunderstanding of the chart of the Earls of Essex given in Complete Peerage v. V facing p.116/7.
