  • Note:
    Richard, the favorite of his greataunt Maud, found no difficulty in usurping not only the administration of the entire estate of the family, but the baronial title as well. It was finally settled after a solemn hearing before the King in person July 6, 1234 (18th of Henry III), that the estates should be divided in equal portions during Richard's life and at his death all the ancient patrimony of the Percy family should devolve on William, a small reservation being made for Richard's son Henry. Richard continued for the remainder of his life the head of the family and enjoyed all its baronial rights, and during the contest with King John he was made one of the Sureties for the Magna Charta. His two sons died sine prole and thus he left no descendants. Richard died in 1244, and then William came into his full right and possession of the estates which had been usurped at the decease of his mother.
