Meeting minutes record Anne Mauleverer to be the daughter of Edmimd and Anne (Pierson) Mauleverer, who was, it is thought, a descendant of Sir Richard Mauleverer, Knight Templar of the Norman Conquest. [2]

Anne's ancestry illustrates the complex intermarriages of the Neville and Percy clans.

Sir Ralph de Neville, 2nd Baron Neville of Raby, husband of Alice de Audley, was descended from Magna Carta Barons through both parents, 3 in all:

  • Roger le Bigod MCS
  • Mary le Bigod
  • Ralph fitz Ranulf
  • Mary of Middleham, m Robert de Neville
  • Ranulf de Neville, 1st Baron, m Eupheme de Clavering
  • Ralph de Neville, 2nd Baron
  • John fitz Robert MCS
  • Roger
  • Robert de Clavering, m Margaret la Zouche
  • Eupheme de Clavering, m Ranulf de Neville
  • Ralph de Neville, 2nd Baron
  • Saher de Quincy MCS
  • Roger de Quincy
  • Ellen de Quincy
  • Margaret la Zouche, m Robert de Clavering
  • Eupheme de Clavering, m Ranulf de Neville
  • Ralph de Neville, 2nd Baron

Henry de Percy, was also descended from Sureties on both sides, 6 in all:

  • Roger le Bigod MCS
  • Hugh le Bigod MCS
  • Isabel le Bigod
  • isabel fitz John
  • Isabel de Vipont
  • Robert de Clifford, m Maud de Clare
  • Idoine de Clifford
  • Richard de Clare MCS
  • Gilbert de Clare MCS
  • Richard de Clare, m Maud de Lacy
  • Thomas de Clare of Thomond
  • Maud de Clare, m Robert de Clifford
  • Idoine de Clifford
  • John de Lacy, m Margaret de Quincy MCS
  • Maud de Lacy, m Richard de Clare
  • Thomas de Clare of Thomond
  • Maud de Clare, m Robert de Clifford
  • Idoine de Clifford
  • Saher de Quincy MCS
  • Robert de Quincy
  • Margaret de Quincy, m John de Lacy
  • Maud de Lacy, m Richard de Clare
  • Thomas de Clare of Thomond
  • Maud de Clare, m Robert de Clifford
  • Idoine de Clifford

Sir Ralph de Neville, the famous 1st Earl of Westmorland, was the grandson of those two "gateways", his mother being a Percy:

  • Ralph de Neville m Alice de Audley | Henry de Percy m Idoine de Clifford
  • John Neville KG, 3rd Baron m Maud de Percy
  • Sir Ralph Neville, "Westmorland"

Westmorland was therefore descended from 7 Sureties by 9 lines (having two lines from Bigod senior and 2 from Quincy)

Westmorland was a supporter of Henry IV, and married the king's sister. Harry "Hotspur" de Percy, was descended from all the same ancestors, his mother being a Neville::

  • Henry de Percy m Idoine de Clifford
  • Henry de Percy m Mary of Lancaster | Ralph de Neville m Alice de Audley
  • Henry de Percy, 1st Earl of Northumberland m Margaret de Neville
  • Harry Percy, "Hotspur"

Note there's an extra generation on the Percy side. The effect of this is that Westmorland was 1st cousin to both Hotspur and his father.

First cousins normally have 6 grandparents between them. Double first cousins have only 4, the same as siblings. Westmorland and Hotspur were intermediate, having effectively 5 grandparents between them.

But high treason was a family affair. In spite of their political differences and genetic closeness, Hotspur's son married Westmorland's daughter. They were 2nd cousins on the Neville side and 2nd cousins once removed on the Percy side. Their children inherited all the ancestry twice over (so being descended from 7 Barons by 18 lines)

  • Hotspur m Elizabeth Mortimer | Westmorland m (2nd) Joan Beaufort
  • Henry Percy, 2nd Earl of Northumberland m Eleanor Neville
  • Henry Percy, 3rd Earl.

Continuing the line down to the Mauleverers, we find at least two more marriages where both partners were descended from Westmorland. In total then, she was descended from the 7 Barons by 36 lines.

  • Henry Percy, 3rd Earl
  • Margaret Percy m Sir William Gascoigne, son of Joan Neville
  • Dorothy Gascoigne m Ninian Markenfield
  • Alice Markenfield m Robert Mauleverer
  • Sir Edmund Mauleverer, m Mary Danby, daughter of Elizabeth Neville
  • William Mauleverer
  • James Mauleverer
  • Edmund Mauleverer
  • Anne Mauleverer
  • Westmorland m (1st) Margaret Stafford
  • Ralph Neville
  • John Neville
  • Joan Neville, m Sir William Gascoigne
  • Sir William Gascoigne, m Margaret Percy
  • Dorothy Gascoigne

Dorothy's parents were half 2nd cousins once removed.

  • Westmorland m (2nd) Joan Beaufort
  • George, 1st Baron Latimer of Snape
  • Henry
  • Richard, 2nd Baron
  • Elizabeth Neville, m Danby
  • Mary Danby, m Sir Edmund Mauleverer
  • William Mauleverer

William's parents were 4th cousins once removed (via Percy) and half 4th cousins twice removed (via Neville of Oversley).

Mary of Lancaster was a great-grand-daughter of Henry III (and also a descendant of the Bigods). Joan Beaufort was a grand-daughter of Edward III. Elizabeth Mortimer was descended from Edward III, and also from Henry III by a different route.

Elizabeth Mortimer also contributed to the Percys multiple copies of the Bigod/Clare/Quincy/Lacy bloodlines contributed by Idoine de Clifford and Eleanor de Neville.

Anne Mauleverer also appears to have at least 15 other lines of descent from Magna Carta barons, including Albini, Ros, Bohun and FitzWalter (provisional)
