Information about this person:
• Background Information. 141
Hugh de Mortimer married, apparently by 1290, Maud, a niece of William le Marshal, whose surname is not known*. He died s.p.m., 20 Jul 1304, and was buried 15 Aug, in Worcester Cathedral, having apparently been accidentally poisoned by his wife, who received a formal pardon therefor in 1305 at the instance of Queen Margaret. Maud was allowed dower in Oct 1304, and her marriage was granted, to the Queen in Apr 1305. She died on or before 15 Feb 1307/8, when the writ to the escheator issued.
*She was probably a relation of Queen Eleanor of Castile, whose son, in the correspondence calls her 'nostre chere cosine Dame Maud de Mertimer du Chastel Richard'.
