Some corrections and additions to the Complete Peerage: Volume 2: Burghersh


See also "proposed" section

Volume 2, page 425:
He [Robert Burghersh (d. 1306)] m. Maud, sister of Bartholomew [1st LORD] BADLESMERE, da. of Guncelin B., by Joan, da. of Ralph FITZ BERNARD.

This identification of Guncelin's wife is removed from the Badlesmere article by volume 14 (see volume 5, page 403, note b).

Volume 2, page 427 (as modified by volume 14):
He [Bartholomew (Burghersh), Lord Burghersh (d. 1369)] m., 2ndly, before Aug. 1366, Margaret, widow of Henry PICHARD, citizen and vintner of London.(c)
Note c:
Dugdale calls her "sister to Bartholomew, Lord Badlesmere" upon the authority of Glover's MS. Collections. If this be true, she was great-aunt to her second husband! V.G.

Margaret is identified by Roskell et al., History of Parliament [The House of Commons 1386-1421, vol. 2, p. 410], as the widow of Henry Picard of London, vintner, (who was living in 1363) and the daughter and coheir of Thomas Gisors of London.

[Margaret's identity was given by Douglas Richardson in August 2002, and further details were provided by Rosie Bevan in November 2003.
