Biography -- Matilda "Maud" Grey (or Gray), (b. c.1382 Heton, NBL - after 1454)[1] is the daughter of Sir Thomas Grey (1359 - 26 Nov 1400) of Heaton and Joan de Mowbray (d.1410).[2][3]

Her eldest brother was beheaded for being a leader in the Southampton Plot that failed to assassinate Henry V,[4] while her first cousin was the on-again / off-again Yorkist, John de Mowbray, 3rd Duke of Norfolk. ... Norfolk and Maud, were grandchildren of Elizabeth Segrave and John, 4th Baron Mowbray.


Maud married Robert Ogle (d. 12 Aug 1436) in May of 1399.[5] The couple had three sons, but sources conflict as to the number and identity of their daughters. Burke states they had eight, while Richardson argues for seven. But only four seem well documented:[6]

  1. Margaret "Margery" Harbottle
  2. Elizabeth
  3. Joan (Jannet) Manners
  4. Constance Mitford

Maud's son Robert, 1st Baron Ogle (1406 - 1469), helped rocket the young and inexperienced Warwick to fame as the "Kingmaker,"[7] by pin-pointing Lancastrian vulnerabilities on the battlefield that started the Wars of the Roses.[8] As such, he was recognized as Northumberland's primary Yorkist.[7]

Maud Ogle has Magna Carta connections.
Magna Carta trail: Her grandfather is on a trail from Gateway Ancestor Nathanial Littleton, but it goes through a sibling of her mother's. This profile does not appear to have been reviewed and approved by the Magna Carta Project as part of a trail to another Gateway Ancestor, so I removed the Magna Carta project badge and descendant category.
