Biography of Alice de Bohun

Alice (Bohun) de Tony was a member of aristocracy in the British Isles.


Alice de Bohun, Alice de Toeni, Alice Tonee

Birth and Parentage

Alice de Bohun was the daughter of Humphrey de Bohun, Knt., Earl of Hereford and Essex, by his 1st wife, Maud, daughter of Raoul (or Ralph) d'Exoudun (or d'Issoudun), Count of Eu.[1]

Alice's age at the time of the marriage agreement in 1239 is unknown, however, since her groom was aged 4 at the time, it should be assumed that both were young children and that the marriage would not become effective for some years.

To assign a date, make Alice 3 years younger than Roger de Tony and thus 1 year old in 1239 and born in 1238.

1239 Agreement to Marry Roger de Tony (age 4)

Roger de Tony married by agreement dated 30 June 1239 Alice de Bohun, daughter of Humphrey de Bohun, Knt, Earl of Hereford and Essex, by his first wife, Maud, daughter of Raoul (or Ralph) d'Exoudun (or d'Issoudun), Count of Eu. Her maritagium included the manors of Newton Tony and East Coulston, Wiltshire.[1]

The same year, 1239, Roger’s father died at sea.

Roger de Tony was titled Baron of Flamstead, Hertfordshire.

Roger was born about 29 Sept 1235 (minor in 1251, came of age in 1256). [1]

This means Roger was aged 4 at the time of the marriage agreement, and one must assume that the marriage became effective some years later!

Roger became a ward to Humphrey de Bohun.

1254 Marriage is Effective

1254, Roger married Alice. Since Roger was aged 4 in 1239, he would be aged 19, fifteen years later.

1255, Alice is living. [2]

They had one son, Ralph, Knt, and one daughter, Alice. His wife, Alice, was living in 1255. [1]

  1. Ralph de Tony, Knt born 1255 in England.[1]
  2. Alice de Tony born ~1260 in England. Married Walter Beauchamp, Knt., of Alcester, Warwickshire. [1]

1242 Queen Eleanor assumes custody of Roger's lands
