Isabel de Moun formerly Basset nee de Ferers[1]

Isabel was the daughter of Sir William de Ferers.[1]

Isabel was married to Gilbert Basset.[1] Isabel and Gilbert had no surviving children.[1]

Isabel was then married to Reginald de Moun.[1]

Isabel and Reginald had children:

  1. William, heir, born 1253/4;[1]

A writ de escaeta issued regarding Isabel Basset on 26 November, resulted in an Inquisition taken on the Friday after St Lucy in 45 Henry III, in Southhampton, which found that Grewell manor was given by Henry III to Gilbert Marescall, who then gave the manor to Gilbert and Isabel Basset, and the heirs of their bodies, but there was no heir left, and Isabel was dead, so the manor was in the king's hand again; another Inquisition was held in Wiltshire which found that Isabel held Mildehal manor in free marriage of the gift of her father, Sir William de Ferers; and another Inquisition in Southhampton revealed that Grewell manor was the ancient demesne of King Henry, the king's grandfather, and he gave it to Juliana de Aquila, mother of Gilbert de Aquila.[1]
