Married, Widowed; Abducted, Married, Widowed; Married
First Husband:
Humphrey (fitz Richard) PESHALL died young, having first married MATILDA de SWYNNERTON, by whom he had a son Richard PESHALL.
MATILDA was the daughter of Sir Robert de SWYNNERTON, of SWYNNERTON, county Stafford, Knight, by his first wife Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Nicholas de BECK, and heiress of Hopton and Tean, upon whose marriage with Sir Robert, the BECK estates and most of the SWYNNERTON estates were settled upon the issue of their two bodies.

On the death of her mother, between 1369 and 1375, MATILDA (either by herself or by her guardians) entered into possession of Hopton and Tean. I suppose her to have been married in her early years to Humphrey PESHALL, and that he died in or before 1388, leaving her still a minor and in the custody of his grandfather Richard de PESHALL at Chetwynd, where she was apparently living in 1388, though her father Sir Robert de SWYNNERTON was still alive.

The following story will in some measure account for the long lawsuit which followed between the PESHALLs and SAVAGEs for possession of her estates. These were days of great licence, and during the reign of King Richard II., neither person nor property were secure from violence and rapine.

Second Husband:
While MATILDA was thus residing at Chetwynd, in the year 1388, she was forcibly abducted by Sir John de IPSTONES and married to his son William, after signing away her estates to Sir John, who died seised of Hopton and Tean in 1394.

This is based upon the record of certain pleadings in a suit, or rather two suits, prosecuted at the Stafford Assizes in 2 to 4 Henry IV., which give a fair pretext for the retention of the heiress's estates by the PESHALLs.

Third Husband:
In one of these suits Elizabeth, who had been the wife of Richard de PESHALL, is sued by John SAVAGE and MATILDA his wife for land in Hopton, Knighton, and Tillington, in Staffordshire. It appeared from the statements of the two parties that Sir Nicholas de BECK, Knight, lord of Tene and Hopton, left issue by Joanna his wife an only daughter and heiress Elizabeth, whose daughter and heiress was MATILDA (or Maud), the plaintiff in the suit; that in 12 Richard II. (1388), John de IPSTONES took MATILDA by force to IPSTONES and imprisoned her there until she granted Hopton to him; that he afterwards married her to his son William de IPSTONES, who entered into possession of Hopton; and that the said Elizabeth, who had been the wife of Richard (de PESHALL), and was mother of William, was endowed thereof.

William had issue Christiana and Alice, and after his death the said MATILDA came to his daughters and sought to be re-enfeoffed of the said manor of Hopton, and on their refusal, the said MATILDA entered the manor and received the rents until she was dispossessed by force by the said Elizabeth, who had been the wife of Richard.

The jury find for MATILDA, with damages of 40 marks.

In the other suit
John SAVAGE and MATILDA his wife sue John de Arderne, Knight, Christiana, daughter of William de IPSTONES, and Alice her sister, and others named, for unjustly disseising them of the manor of Teyne and 50 marks of rent in Draycote. The jury give the same account of the transaction as before; and it further appears from this suit that Elizabeth the mother of MATILDA had married Sir Robert de SWYNNERTON, Knight, by whom she had the said MATILDA her daughter and heir.

The jury state in the former suit that Sir Nicholas de BECK, Knight, was seized of Tene and the reversion of Hopton and other lands in Knyghton and Tillington, and granted the reversion of Hopton, which Mary, the mother of Nicholas, held for term of life of the inheritance of the said Nicholas, to John de BECK, Rector of the Church of Chekkeleye, and to the heirs of John, and John de BECK by an indenture granted the said manor to Mary for life, and after her death to revert to Nicholas and Joan his wife and the heirs of their bodies.

Nicholas and Joan entered into possession, and had issue Elizabeth; and Nicholas and Joan died, and Elizabeth entered into possession, and had issue the said MATILDA who sues; and Elizabeth died, and MATILDA entered into possession as heir, and was seised thereof until Sir John de IPSTONES, Knight, on the day of the Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 21 Richard II. (8th December, 1388), took her by force from Chetwynd to the vill of IPSTONES, and there imprisoned her until he had extorted from her a grant of the said manor of Hopton and the other lands named, to the said John de IPSTONES and his heirs, on condition that the said John and his heirs should reenfeoff her of the said manor of Hopton, and John had issue one William, who married the said MATILDA; and John died, and after his death William entered into possession of the said manor of Hopton, and endowed therein the said Elizabeth who had been wife of Richard and was mother of the said William; and the said William had issue Christiana and Alice (as before).

Hence it appears that MATILDA or Maud, the plaintiff in the said suits, was the daughter of Sir Robert de SWYNNERTON by his wife Elizabeth de BECK, and that William de IPSTONES, her former husband (by whom she had two daughters Christiana and Alice), was the son of Sir John de IPSTONES by Elizabeth his wife, the defendant in one of the suits.

His wife Elizabeth was the daughter and heiress of Thomas, son and heir apparent of Sir Robert Corbet, of Wattlesburgh and Moreton Corbet, Knight. She was born about 1357, and married to Sir John de IPSTONES in or before the year 1372. Sir John was killed in a family quarrel on 23rd February, 1394, being at that time Knight of the Shire for the county of Stafford. His widow was afterwards re-married to Richard de PESHALE, and again a widow in 2 Henry IV. (1400-1).

Her son Sir William de IPSTONES, who was born in February, 1373, died in October, 1399, leaving Christiana and Alice, his daughters and co-heirs, aged six and three years respectively. MATILDA his widow was afterwards re-married to John, son of Sir John SAVAGE, who is joined with her in these suits.

Matilda de Swynnerton
Matilda de Swynnerton, by virtue of the above mentioned settlement, not only succeeded to her mother's inheritance, Hpton and Tene and other lands and tenements in Staffordshire, but laid claim to those parts of her father's estates which had belonged to Hugh le Despenser in Stafford and Chester. After she entered on her inheritance she married 1st Humphrey de Pershale, by whom she had a son, Richard de Pershale, her rightful heir. After his death, by 1338, she resided in the house of his grandfather, Sir Richard Pershale, Lord of Chetwynd, from whence she was forcibly abducted by Sir John Ipstone, Knight, and subsequently married to his son, William de Ipstone, died October 1399, by whom she had two daughters: Christiana and Alice. She married 3rd Sir John Savage, of Clifton, Knight. Her descent and the story of her abduction are well told in the pleadings at stafford Assizes a few years later, in two seperate suits. One suit of John Savage and Matilda, his wife, sued Elizabeth, who had been the wife of Richard Pershale ( Matilda's son by her first husband ) for lands in Hopton knighton and Tillington in Co. Stafford, and in the other suit several others and the guardians of her two daughters by Ipstone, for unjustly disseising them of the Manor of Tene and 50 marks of rent in Draycote. In both cases the jury found a verdict for Matilda, with damages. This Sir John de Ipstones, who abducted Matilda and married her to his son William, died in 1393/4, and as he was killed by one Roger de Swynnerrton, we may infer that his death was accomplished as an act of vengeance for his treatment of Matilda.
