Hugh de Morville (d.1162), Lord of Cunningham, founder of the Scot branch of the Morvilles, is sometimes mixed up with [his son] Hugh II de Morville, Lord of Westmorland (d.1173/4), who participated in Beckett's murder.[1][2]


m. Beatrice de Beauchamp.[3] Issue:

  • (disputed) Hugh II, Lord of Westmorland[2]
  • Maud m. William de Vieuxpont
  • (possibly) Richard de Morville (d.1189)[4]
  • (disputed) Ada m. Roger Bertram[5]
  • (possibly) Simon (d. 1167) m. Ada de Engaine

  1. Von Zatzikhoven & Meyer, 2011
  2. 2.0 2.1 (disputed) Hugh II may have been a son of Simon de Morville, who held the barony of Burgh-by-Sands, Cumberland, in right of his mother, Ada, daughter of William de Engaine.[citation needed] On the other hand, both Simon and Hugh I may have been brothers (Wikipedia).

  5. Ada was the sister of Hugh II (Wikipedia). Therefore, his disputed parentage also casts hers in doubt.
