Matilda "Maud" Grey (or Gray), (b. c.1382 - d. aft. 1454)[1] was the daughter of Sir Thomas Grey (1359 - 26 Nov 1400) of Heaton (in Cornhill-on-Tweed, Northumb), and Joan de Mowbray (d.1410), dau. of John Mowbray, 4th Baron Mowbray & Elizabeth Segrave, 5th Baroness Segrave.[2]

Her eldest brother was beheaded for being a leader in the Southampton Plot that failed to assassinate Henry V,[3] 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.

Marriage and Children

In May 1399 Maud married Robert Ogle (d. 12 Aug 1436).[4] They had three sons, but sources conflict on the number and identity of their daughters. Burke states they had eight, while Richardson argues for seven.[5]

Maud's son Robert, 1st Baron Ogle (1406 - 1469), helped rocket the young and inexperienced Warwick to fame as the "Kingmaker,"[6] by pin-pointing Lancastrian vulnerabilities on the battlefield that started the Wars of the Roses.[7] As such, he was recognized as Northumberland's primary Yorkist.[6]

  • "Charleton, Lord Powys, Harl 1396, fo. 66b. S. ff. 108b. - 110b.," in Vis. of Salop., 1623, asserts that Maud's mother was Alice, dau. of Ralph Neville, Earl of Westmorland, (p. 106),[1] but this is incorrect because it was Maud's brother Thomas, who married Alice Neville. Maud belongs to the previous generation ... but there still more conflicts. It calls her mother Catherine Mowbray, and asserts that her father Thomas Grey, was the son of John Grey, (p. 105).[2]
  • "Lord Ogle & Ogle of Cawsey Park," in VIs. of Northumb., 1615 & 66, makes Maud the dau. of Sir John Grey, Earl of Tankerville, son of Sir Thos. Grey of Horton & Genet, dau. of John Mowbray & Elizabeth Segrave.[3]

I think this trail was developed in 2015 but never reviewed/approved... apparently from Fenwick-267.
