(grandson of King Henry II) [see AUDLEY 5 for his ancestry]. They had two sons, James and Hugh, Knt. [Earl of Gloucester], and one daughter, Alice. He took part in the Scottish and French wars of King Edward I. He was taken prisoner in Gascony in 1299. In 1301 they had a grant of one-third of the manor of Great Marcle, Herefordshire. He had a grant of free warren at Eastington in 1318. He was summoned to Parliament in 1321. He joined Thomas of Lancaster's rebellion in 1322, but surrendered before the Battle of Boroughbridge. SIR HUGH DE AUDLEY, Lord Audley, died while a prisoner in Wallingford castle shortly before 1 April 1325. In 1337 his widow, Iseult, endowed a chantry in the church of Eastington, Gloucestersbire.

ISEULT DE MORTIMER, born say 1255-60. She married (1st) WALTER DE BALUN, Knt., of Great Marcle, Herefordshite, Eastington, Gloucestershire, and Arley, Staffordshire, and Great Cheverel, Wiltshire. He was born about 1225 (aged 50 in 1275). They had no issue. He was heir in 1275 to his older brother, John de Balun. He was summoned to serve against the Welsh in 1277 and 1282.

In 1287 they likewise had the grant of the manor of Ailey, Staffordshire for the term of their lives from Edmund. SIR WALTER DE BALUN was living 1287.

The Following is form
Note: @N3479@N3479@ NOTEMarried #1 Walter de An article in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, vol. 116: 16-7, gives Isolt as the daughter of Edmund de Mortimer, and this opinion has been followed by Weis/Sheppard/Faris in Ancestral Roots (9-30, 207-30) and by Faris in Plantagenet Ancestry (Audley 13). -- Christopher Nash From VCH Worc (Arley): "It passed from Roger to his son Edmund in 1282 [CP V, 379], and was granted by the latter to his daughter Iseult and her first husband Walter de Balun for their lives. After Walter's death Iseult married Hugh de Audley, and on his forfeiture in 1322 the manor was granted by the King to Iseult [Cal. Close, 1323-7, p. 467], who held it until her death about 1339-40 [Abbrev.Rot.Orig. (Rec. Com.), ii, 130]. The reversion after her death, during the minority of Roger de Mortimer, had been granted in 1336 to William de Bohun, Earl of Northampton [Duchy of Lanc. Royal Chart., no. 277], who had married Elizabeth widow of Edmund de Mortimer, grandson of the Edmund who had granted the manor to Iseult. [Cal. Close, 1354-60, p. 271; CP V, 379]. Roger came of age about 1348, but Elizabeth held the manor until her death in 1356, when it passed to her son Roger [Cal. Close, 1354-60, p. 271], who had become Earl of March by the reversal of his grandfather's attainder in 1354 [CP V, 243]." -- Christopher NashMy research indicates that Iseult and her first husband, Walter de Balun, received the grant of the manor of Arley, Staffordshire from Edmund de Mortimer for the term of their lives. The grant evidently took place in or before 1286, in which year I believe Walter de Balun died. In 1305, following Edmund de Mortimer's death, his widow, Margaret, sued Iseult and her second husband, Hugh de Audley, for dower in the manor. In 1325 Iseult paid a fine of 10 pounds to the King for having acquired the manor of Arley without license from the king [References: William Salt Arch. Soc., vol. 7, pp. 6,137-138,142; vol. 9, pg. 132]. In the various wrangling over this property, there is no indication that Iseult had the manor in free marriage, or any indication that she was related to Edmund de Mortimer. Indeed, the gift being for life is unusual, as marriage settlements were usually permanent gifts, not lifetime grants. I also find it unusual that if Edmund de Mortimer granted the manor to Iseult and Walter for their lives that his widow, Margaret, would later sue them for dower, especially if Iseult was Edmund's daughter. Reading the records on this matter, I'm frankly skeptical that Iseult de Audley was Edmund de Mortimer's daughter. -- Douglas Richardson, GEN-MEDIEVAL, 19 Jan 2002My Mortimer family notes show that Edmund de Mortimer had an uncle, Hugh de Mortimer (died 1273) of Chelmarsh, who married Agatha de Ferrers (died 1306), daughter of William de Ferrers, 5th Earl of Derby. If Iseult de Audley was the child of Hugh and Agatha, it would give her grandson, Sir James de Audley, the needed links to both the Mortimer and Ferrers families. Also, it would solve the obvious chronology problem of Iseult being Edmund de Mortimer's daughter. -- Douglas Richardson, GEN-MEDIEVAL, 25 Jan 2002Reviewing the chronological difficulties involved in this problem, it seems the best solution is to push Iseult back a generation and make her a daughter of Roger de Mortimer, Knt. (died 1282), by his wife, Maud de Brewes. While this arrangement would make Iseult's first husband, Walter de Balun, the same approximate age as her father, it fits the chronology much better than Iseult being a daughter in the next generation.

He was present at the coronation of Richard I at Westminster on 3 Sept. 1189, and in 1191 he was one of eleven appointed by the Chancellor (on the part of King Richard) to treat with those of Prince John the questions between King Richard and the prince.
