• Background Information. 141
Guy de Beauchamp, Earl of Warwick, also hereditary Sheriff of Worcestershire and Chamberlain of the Exchequer, son and heir, was said to be aged 23-27 in 1298 and 30 and more in 1301. He was knighted by Edward I at Easter (25 Mar) 1296 and fought in the King's division at the battle of Falkirk, 22 Jul 1298, receiving for his good service, 25 September following a grant of Scottish lands, late of Geoffrey de Mowbray and others, to the value of 1,000 marks per annum; a Commissioner to treat for peace with France, 12 May 1299, and with the French envoys concerning losses inflicted by the Scots, 1 Mar 1300/1; was summoned for service against the Scots, 1299-1314; took part in the siege of Carlaverock, Jul 1300, being in the 2nd division under the Earl of Surrey; was at Perth with the Prince of Wales, with whom he frequently dined, Decr 1303-Apr 1304; and served under him at the siege of Stirling Castle, April-July following.

For good service rendered he was granted, 2 Feb1306/7, Barnard Castle, co. Durham; and at the Coronation of Edward 11, 25 Feb 1307/8, he carried the third sword. Falling foul of Gavaston, who called him "The Black Dog of Arden," he was prominent in procuring his banishment, 18 May 1308, and alone opposed his recall in 1309. Against the King's orders of 7 Febr he, with Thomas of Lancaster and others, came in arms to the Parliament at Westminster, March, where he was sworn as one of the Lords Ordainers, 20 Mar 1309/10. After Piers Gavaston's surrender on terms to the Earls of Pembroke and Surrey at Scarborough, 19 May 1312, Piers was escorted by Pembroke to Deddington, Oxon., where he was seized by Warwick, 10 June following, and carried off to Warwick Castle. On Lancaster's arrival there, with the Earls of Hereford and Arundel, Warwick handed over his prisoner, who was beheaded forthwith without trial, 19 Jun 1312, on Blacklow Hill. The confederate Earls remained in arms till peace was proclaimed, 22 Decr 1312, but though finally pardoned, 16 Oct 1313 they refused to serve in the Bannockburn campaign of 1314. He was a Commissioner, 28 May 1315, to treat with Thomas of Lancaster about the custody of the Scottish Marches.

Guy de Beauchamp married, 1stly, before 11 May 1297, Isabel, daughter of Gilbert (de Clare), 6th Earl of Gloucester and Hertford, by his 1st wife Alice, daughter of Hugh (de Lusignan), Count of la Marche & Angoluême. This marriage appears to have been dissolved.

Guy de Beauchamp married, 2ndly, between 12 Jan and 28 Feb 1309/10, Alice, widow of Thomas de Leyburn (who died s.p.m. and v.p. shortly before 30 May 1307; son and heir apparent of William (de Leyburn, 1st Lord Leyburn), sister and heir of Robert (de Toni), 1st Lord Toni (who died s.p. shortly before 28 Nov 1309), daughter of Ralph de Toeni VII, by his wife Mary. He died 12 Aug 1315 at Warwick and was buried in Bordesley Abbey. His widow, who was aged 24-27 in 1309, married (licence 26 Oct 1316), before 25 February 1316/7, as his 1st wife, William (la Zouche, 1st Lord Zouche (of Mortimer), who died 28 February 1336/7. She died shortly before 8 January 1324/5, leaving issue by all 3 husbands.
