Includes Notes for Margaret De Umfreville:


The Anglo-Norman family of the De Umfrevilles are one of the oldest amongst the nobility of England yet compared to the other great Border families (Percy, Wake, Clifford, De Lucy and Neville) they are relatively unknown nationally. This is somewhat misleading as at the height of their power the De Umfrevilles held Earldoms in Scotland (Angus) and England (Kyme in Lincolnshire), Lordships in Redesdale and Coquetdale, Baronies at Prudhoe, Wooler, Amphreville-sur Iton (Normandy) and manors at Holmside, near Burnhope in County Durham, and Chollerton (near Humshaugh north east of Hexham). They also fought in some of the most decisive battles of the middle ages and the hundred years war (Falkirk, Bannockburn, Otterburn and Agincourt to name but four) and held positions of high honour with Kings of England and Scotland.The De Umfrevilles Scottish Earldom of Angus was confiscated by Robert Bruce around 1328, they lost Prudhoe in 1381 through marriage and Redesdale in 1436, which they had ruled for nearly 400 years, with the death of Sir Robert De Umfreville the Vice-Admiral of England. Elsewhere an early branch of the Umfrevilles settled in Glamorgan and then gained lands in Devon. At some point in history another branch appeared in Essex and London descended from the first Earl of Angus, Gilbert, which then produced a further branch that came back to Northumberland and Newcastle with one of them even marrying in the Elsdon church. A first glance at the family trees in this document will reveal to the reader that the Umfrevilles, like most of their contemporaries, had a penchant for using the same names over and over again for their male descendants. Thus we will find many Gilberts, Richards, Roberts and Williams even within the same generation. Because of this I have attempted to give as many of them an epithet or nickname by which he was known, a title or even a number in order to make the descent a little clearer. The Umfrevilles descendants are alive today in London, Essex, the USA, Canada, New Zealand, Israel and possibly elsewhere
