King Henry I of England via the Perrots

Descent from King Henry to Gwenthlean HERLE who married Thomas ap Evan Lloyd Blayney of Gregynog, the parents of David Lloyd Blayney and thus grandparents of Lord Edward Blayney.  Also evidence of a Plantagenet descent from King John via the Perrots and Herles to this Thomas Blayney

See also (illegitimate) descent from King HENRY to:
[1] Elizabeth GWYN, mother of Lewis Blayney via Einion SAIS;
[2] Margaret HERBERT, second wife of Thomas Blayney; and
[3] Joyce HERBERT mother-in-law of John Blayney
(both the latter via Einion SAIS, Sir Dafydd GAM and the Herberts).

A more probable Clemence was Clemence Le BOTELER b.1275, daughter of Philip Le BOTELER with Joan being conceived before John (or Clemence) were married, allowing the Pope to legitimise her. Unless she was the eldest child, it would not have been necessary to make her legitimacy conditional on removing any claim to thte throne. ]

William hadn't helped relations by being caught in Llywelyn's private bedchamber with Llywelyn's wife, Joan and so was promptly and publically hanged by Llywelyn while Joan was placed under house arrest for a year.

Tomb and Arms of
Arnaud de Gaveston
(different to Pier's)

This Peter PERROT is quite possibly the same person as Sir Piers of Gaveston Earl of Cornwall and Edward II's "favourite". [suggested by Kevin McKenzie [145] because Piers:

  • was called "brother Perrot" by Edward II [936], and many references use "Perrot" instead of Piers [948]
  • had a coat of arms with six golden eagles on green (ie junior line from Owain Gwynedd), totally different to the "assumed" father Sir Arnaud de Gabaston/Gaveston (bur. 1310, Winchester Cathedral - see above)
  • Piers is not a name found in Sir Arnaud's family (but Arnaud's brother-in-law was Pierre Caillau so he could be named for his maternal auncle [930]).
  • gifted one hundred silver shields, marked with an eagle by Edward II
  • was made guardian of the 16 yr old Roger Mortimer in 1304 by Edward I after the death Roger's father Edmund [945]. Roger would have been the 1st cousin once removed (cousin's son) of "Peter".
  • Piers called John of Brittany "trescher cosin" (very dear cousin) [939]. John (Earl of Richmond) was "Peter" Perrot's 2nd cousin once removed.
  • Piers married the daughter of the king's favourite sister and a prominent Lord, something impossible if he was a commoner.
  • Piers is known in contemporary records as Petrus de Causton or de Caveston, indicating that the later use of "de Gaveston" is actually a misreading of Canaston and as Peter's wife was Mary Canaston, Peter would "by right of his heiress wife" have been "de Canaston". The name "Piers Gaveston" has in fact only been used since Christopher Marlowe used the name in his play Edward II but has been copied ever since [145]
  • Peter Perrot's wife Mary Kynaston (Canaston) is given in Wotton's Baronage [946] as Margaret, probably confusion with Piers' 2nd wife, Margaret de Clare
  • Piers was termed a Gascon noble, so some assume he is from Gabaston in Gascony. However Sir Richard Perrot (Signeur de Perrot) of Brittany [ancestor of Peter Perrot (ie Piers)] who accompanied William the Conqueror [933], was married to Blanche de Aragon (daughter of Matilda de Aquitaine and Sancho Ramiro, second King of Aragon grandson of King Sancho III ("the Great") of Navarre, Count of Aragon, suzerain of Gascony and married to Gaya de Gascony. [946] [668] [947]

Piers Gaveston dead at
feet of Guy de Beauchamp

Sir Piers de Gaveston Earl of Cornwall b~1282/3 (Berkhamsted Castle) - he had to be at least 21 in 1304 when given Roger's Wardship and was the "contemporary" of Edward II (born 1284); m.1Nov1307; d.19Jun1312

In 1308 he served briefly as Regent when Edward II was in France. In 1312 he was abucted by the Earl of Warwick, from Scarborough Castle, taken to Blacklow Hill where he was run through then beheaded and then left on the road by Earls Lancaster, Hereford & Arundel. Piers is named as the "Headless spirit of Scarborough Castle" [937]

Piers married Margaret de Clare (b.1294 d.1342) [daughter of Joan of Acre (dau of Edward I and Eleanor of Castile) b.1272 in Akko, Syria (on Crusade); d.1307 and Gilbert 'the Red' de Clare, Earl of Gloucester and Hertford b.1243 2m.30Apr1290 d.1295]. Margaret remarried on 28Apr1317 to Hugh AUDLEY (d'Audley) the younger another of Edward II's "favourites"

Piers and Margaret had Joan GAVESTON b.Jan1312 (York), Joan bing a family name for Peter (his grandmother Joan MORTIMER and great-great grandmother Joan PLANTAGENET).
