  • ID: I70929
  • Name: Hamo de Longford
  • Sex: M
  • Death: BEF 1166
  • Note:

    Among those to whom the lands of Hugo de Belesme, Earl of Shropshire, and his associates were given, was a certain Hamo, who received, as tenant-in-chief, the manor of Longford, or Langford, on the eastern border of Shropshire, close to the Staffordshire line.
    Hamo had as wife, Ethclinda, otherwise called Sibil, or Basilia Fitz Odo, a name hinting at high Norman connections. He died about 1160, seized of this manor of Longford, in Shropshire, of Lacerton, in Dorset-
    shire, of Church-Eaton-cum-Orslow (Chirche-Eyton-cum-Orselawe), in Staffordshire, about six miles southeast of Longford, and of Mid-Aston, in Oxfordshire; both these latter held under the Barons Stafford. He
    had no male issue, but left three unmarried daughters, Eva, Agnes and Emma, who, accordingly, became royal wards. Emma was disposed of by being sent to the nunnery of Kingston, Wilts; Agnes was, apparently,
    not provided with a husband ; while Eva was given in marriage to Robert de Brinton, of Berks, who thus became tenant-in-chief of the Manor of Longford, in right of his wife.
    For what service King Henry V compensated him with the hand and lands of the heiress Eva, does not appear. It was certain!}' not through the intercession of his feudal chief, Hugh de Mortimer; for that turbulent noble opposed the accession of King Henry, and had to be brought to obedience by the sword. Possibly it was that Robert de Brinton, in this struggle, sided with the crown, and the king rewarded him for his loyalty by rendering him independent, and legally the peer, of Earl Hugh himself.
