Biography

Laurencia was born about 1324 which seems reasonable given life events (her son after 1370). Her family and surname does not appear in source material.

In 1364, according to the History of Surrey, Cecilia, wife of Sir Richard Tuberville, granted her half of the estate at farm to Peter atte Wode, his wife Laurencia and their son Peter, in survivorship.[1] Peter accounted for the manor of Chipstead in 1364. Before 1382, with Peter and his son both dead, Cecilia Tuberville quitclaimed the manor to Hugh Queche of London, Laurencia's son by her second marriage.

After Peter's death, likely c. 1370 (and not as implied on wikipedia), Laurencia, remarried, a man with the surname of Queche, likely a mercer (textile merchant), of London. Her son, by her second marriage, Hugh Queche must still have been a minor when he received the manor of Chipstead in Surrey even though he is named as a "mercer" (a textile merchant). This transaction is noticed in the Close Rolls of Richard II.[2]

There is a record[3] where, on 20 November 1382, John Newdigate and Laurencia, the widow of Peter atte Wode, assigned £6 14s. rents of the priory and convent of Stoke. The relationship, if any, between John Newdigate and Laurencia, is unknown. The rental was for the creation of a chantry, of one canon, to pray for Laurencia whilst living, and of the soul of Peter, and the souls of the king, bishop and Laurencia when dead.

Laurencia is thought to have died c. 1419 but there is no assurance of this.
