Some corrections and additions to the Complete Peerage: Volume 9: Mortimer


MORTIMER or MORTEMER of Wigmore

See also "proposed" section

Volume 9, page 273:
In 1212 he [Roger de Mortimer (d. 1214)] proffered 3,000 marks for the marriage of the heir of Walter de Beauchamp, to whom he married his daughter Joan.(g)
Note g:
Ann. Mon. (Rolls Ser.), vol. iv, p. 400; Rot. Lit. Claus., vol. i, p. 168.

In fact, both the documents cited refer to Roger de Mortimer having made fine for the lands and marriage of Walter (or Watkin) de Beauchamp, not for the marriage of the heir of Walter.

Volume 9, page 276 (as modified by volume 14):
He [Edmund de Mortimer (d. 1304)] m., 1stly, (---) [and 2ndly,] circa 1285, Margaret, da. of Sir William DE FENLES (or DE FIENES), ...
Note m:
... In addition to their son Roger, Edmund and Margaret had four daughters: Maud, ... Joan and Elizabeth ... He also had a da. Isolt by his first wife. ...

They also had a daughter Eleanor, whose marriage to William de Kyme [Lord Kyme] (d. 1338) had been contracted, but not consummated, by 29 November 1307 (see Kyme, volume 7, pages 355, 356).

For the supposed additional daughter Isolt, see "proposed" section.
