  • ID: I18019
  • Name: Agnes de Bereford 1
  • Sex: F
  • Death: JUL 1375
  • Note: 1 1 2

    She was one of three sisters, who eventually became the legal coheirs of their brother Edmund de Bereford, though their eventual inheritance of his estates was delayed and complicated by the presence of Edmund's two illegitimate sons, John and Baldwin.
    She married, secondly, John de Nerford and, thirdly, John Maltravers. as his 2nd wife.
    Agnes died in July 1375, having made her will in London the previous February. The will, a long document in French, opens with a long list of gifts to religious houses (including the Argentein foundations of Wymondley Priory and Royston Hospital), and also many bequests of personal items to relatives and others. Agnes wished to be buried near John Maltravers in the church of Lychet Maltravers if she died in Dorset or Wiltshire, but in Wymondley Priory if she died in Hertfordshire or Cambridgeshire. Of her Argentein relatives, she mentions her son John, his wife Margaret, and their daughters, Maud the wife of Ivo fitz Waren and Elizabeth the wife of Baldwin St George (though curiously she refers to her granddaughters Maud and Elizabeth as her 'daughters').
    Married 2nd John Nerford (dsp 5 Jan 1529).
