      "Reginald was under age at the time of his father's death, which took place in or before 1213, and was a ward of Henry fitz Count, son of the earl of Cornwall; the wardship was, apparently, afterwards divided between the crown and William Brewer, his own grandfather.

      "He had livery of his estates and was knighted on 18 January 1227. He held office under the crown from the mid-1230s and accompanied the king regularly on military expeditions to Wales and the continent. He can occasionally be encountered as a justice in the 1230s and 1240s, though he does not seem to have gone regularly on eyre.

      Marriages and Children
      "His first wife, Hawise, a daughter of Geoffrey fitz Peter, fourth earl of Essex, was dead by 1237. With her Mohun had (besides at least three other children, who all married well) a son John, who married Joan, the fifth daughter of William Ferrers, earl of Derby, and died in Gascony in 1254 (his heart was buried at Newenham, his body at Bruton).

      "His second wife, whom he married c. 1242, was Isabel, widow of Gilbert Basset, and daughter of William Ferrers, earl of Derby, and Sybilla, the fourth daughter of William Marshal, earl of Pembroke (d. 1219), and so the elder sister of her stepson's wife. By this marriage a part of the inheritance of the earls Marshal fell to the Mohuns; this part included certain lands in Leinster about which Mohun and his wife appear to have been involved in some legal proceedings from 1248 to 1253 with the other Marshal coheirs, especially William de Valence. With Isabel, Mohun had a son named William (aged six or seven in 1258), who inherited part of the Marshal estates. His wardship and marriage were sold to Sir William de la Zouche for 200 marks in 1262.

      Death and Burial
      "He died at Torre on 20 January 1258, and was buried on the left side of the high altar at Newenham Abbey. He left 700 marks in his will for Newenham. A long and, no doubt, fanciful, account of his holy death is extant from the mid-fourteenth century, written by a monk of Newenham. He recorded that Mohun, who was wont to hear the whole divine service daily, was confessed by Henry, a Franciscan theologian of Oxford; furthermore, thirty-five years after Mohun's death the writer saw and touched the founder's body, which was then uncorrupt." Note: Newenham Abbey is near Axminster in Devon. It was destroyed in the 16th century and later and is now on minor fragments of masonry remaining at the site.
