    • Biography
      Walter was born about 1314 to William Montgomery and Philippa [1] last name unknown born about 1290 and died about 1345 in Marchington, Derbyshire, England. Another indication that his birth is about 1314 is a mention in [2] that, 'In 1338 and 1342 he was Commissioner of Oyer and Terminer, and in 1345 he was commissioned to take archers from Derbyshire to Southampton in the king's service. In 1346 he was a Justice of the Peace with Nicholas de Longford. 1355 he was escheator of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. This site also lists him with two wives, Matilda and Anne as well as a step-mother Johanna and several stepbrothers, Robert Gresley, Edmnud Gresley, Thomas Gresley, John Gresley, Peter Gresley and Geoffrey de Gresley. One son is listed a Sir Nicholas Montgomery, Knight. This however lists no source and more research will have to be done here.

      That Walter is the son and heir of William is found at his fathers inquisition post mortem [CIPM v.VI; no.509], Walter was about 10 years old (i.e. born about 1314).[3] This site also has him married by 1343, to Alice, from a fine dated Quindene of Hillary 1343 [4]. Alice was still living in May 1345 when she and Walter were granted papal indult to choose a confessor at the hour of death [5]

      He was married secondly by 1364 to Maud (possibly Furnival) according to a fine dated Easter that year. [6]

      A series of settlements in tail male were made on Walter in his lifetime. In 1335 Walter had settled on himself and his male heirs the manor of Leigh, Staffordshire [7]. In an undated deed, William son of Serlo de Grendon settled lands in Snelston on Walter with reversion to William his brother in tail male [8]

      On 10 May 15 Edw. III. (1341) William Sapirton, chaplain and John Roger, feoffees, settled the manors of Cubley, Sudbury, Aston and tenements in Hill Somersall and Potter Somersall on Walter in tail male [9] On 1 Aug. 1355 William de Caverswall made a grant to Walter in tail mail of the manor of Caverswall, Staffs. with messuage and lands in Forsebroke and Dellren (Forsbrook and Dilhorne), and manor of Roddisley (Rodsley, Derbs) [10] In an undated settlement William Akover (Oakover), Lord of Snelston, presumably acting in the role of feoffee, settled the manors of Cubley, Marston and Snelston on Walter for life, then to his son Nicholas in tail male [11] In 1338 and 1342 he was Commissioner of Oyer and Terminer, and in 1345 he was commissioned to take archers from Derbyshire to Southampton in the king's service. In 1346 he was a Justice of the Peace with Nicholas de Longford. 1355 he was escheator of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. In 1343 Walter settled the manor of Marchington (Marston Montgomery) on his son William recently married to Margaret, daughter of Sir Richard Stafford. William appears to have died without issue during the lifetime of his father as Walter's heir was his son Nicholas. In 1364 Walter and Maud granted by fine 6 rent in Cubley and a moiety of the manor of Snelston to their son Nicholas and Ann, his wife, to hold to themselves and the heirs of their body of Nicholas, of Walter and Maude and Walter's heirs forever paying therefore 1 rose each year at the feast of the Nativity of St John the Baptist for all services due etc due to Walter. [12]. Walter was dead by Michaelmas 1374 when Maud was referred to as his widow in a fine [13] She is probably the same Maud "sometime wife of Walter Mungomery, knight" mentioned in the IPM of William de Furnival (d.1383) receiving, for life, 43 marks annually from the manor of Sheffield, Yorkshire, with the king's licence.[14] . In 1596 William Wyrley recorded the arms of Furnival in heraldic glass in Sudbury church[15]. Maud was still living in 1385 when she presented to Cubley church.[16]
