Notes on Royals

Barlborough Hall, Derbyshire

The Rodes estates seem to have been divided or disposed of in Notts., and others retained in Yorkshire and Derbyshire, where the branch of the family in which we are interested removed.
It was founded by William Rodes who married Emme, daughter and heiress of John Cachehors, of Staveley Woodthorpe in Derbyshire.
This remained the family seat until Barlborough Hall was built by Francis Rodes. His son, Sir John Rodes, Knt., sold Staveley Woodthorpe, and made Barlborough the permanent family residence.
Barlborough Hall, Derbyshire, was built by Francis Rodes, Esq., justice, about 1583.

From "Descendants of Peter Montague" we find the following:
++Edmund Mortimer
, Earl of March 3rd, grandson of William Montague, by his dau. Philippa, (d/o Wm. & Catherine (De Grandison) Montagu) married Philippa, dau. of Lionel, Duke of Clarence, son of King Edward III. From this marriage was descended Edward IV, King of England and a long line of royal personages. Mary, Queen of Scots and her husband Lord Dernley, were cousins. She was of Montague descent through her grandmother Margaret Tudor, b. 28 Nov 1489, the aunt of Queen Elizabeth and sister of Henry VIII, who was married to James IV, of Scotland. He was slain at Flodden Field and Margaret re-married Archibald Douglas, Earl of Angus and their dau. Margaret was the mother of Henry, Lord Dernly by her marriage with Mathew Stewart, Earl of Lennox." -(See Peerage of Scotland p. 335, and Camden's Brit. p. 918, and Chronicles of the Kings by Sir R. Baker p. 269, also Burke's Royal Families.)

"History and Genealogy of the Montague Family in America"

Peter Montague, (went to VA, while his bro., Richard, went to New England) b. 1603, son of Peter, m. Elizabeth Allen
Peter Mongtague, 5th son of William, m. Eleanor, dau. of William Allen, of Burnham, Bucks
William, 2nd son of Robert, bro. of Lawrence, m. Margaret, dau. of John Malthouse, of Binfield, Berkshire
Robert, 2nd son of William, m. Margaret, dau. of Roger Cotton, of Berkshire. Robert was buried 10 Jan. 1575
William, m. Joan (?). He resided at Boveney, parish of Burnham, Buckinghamshire. His will was proved 21 Mar. 1550

This family in England are called the Boveney and Dorney Montagues, and their Coat of Arms is blazoned, "Argent three fusils in fess gules between three pellets (or ogresses)." It will be noticed that the arms of the Boveney family are the same as the arms of Sir Simon Montacute who signed the Baron's letter, except that to the former there have been added three ogresses.

The ogresses may have been added for difference in family, or they may (as it has been expressed by a gentleman in London who bears the name) have been added to mark some deed done at some time, such as a large donation of land to the church, as the church at Boveney bears such a record.

Perhaps they may have been added as a part of the maternal arms of William Montague, son of Robert, for his mother was Margaret, dau. of Roger Cotton. And the Arms of one family of Cotton were, "Argent a bend Sable between three ogresses."

Whatever may have been the origin of these pellets,, the fact still remains, that the Boveney family bear the Arms of Sir Simon Montague of A. D. 1300, which Arms were also borne by his son lord William Montacute and by his grandson the first Earl of Salisbury.

From Larry Montague's page "Montague Millennium" :

Lady Sibyl Montagu, eldest dau. of this great Earl of Salisbury, (William, b. 1301) married Edmund, son of Edmund Earl of Arundel. He was of royal blood being descended through Hamlyn Plantagenet and thence from William the Conquerer through his dau. Gundred. 

Lady Philippa Montagu, second dau. and sister of Sibyl, married Roger Mortimer Earl of March. He was son of Edmund, and grandson of that Roger Mortimer Earl of March who was put to death by Edward III. The son of Lady Philippa Montague by this marriage, also named Edmund Earl of March, married Philippa, only daughter of Lionel, Duke of Clarence, (third son of King Edward III) by Lady Elizabeth de Burgh, dau. of William Earl of Ulster. Their son, Roger Mortimer Earl of March, was direct heir to the Crown of England and was designed by King Richard as his successor, but he died before the king, leaving issue Edmund and Anne. Edmund was thrown into prison by King Henry IV. who had usurped the Government, and feared Edmund's title to the Crown, where he died of grief and discontent, leaving his sister Anne to inherit the Crown. Lady Anne Mortimer married Richard Plantagenet, Earl of Cambridge son of Edmund of Langley who was the fifth son of King Edward III. They had an only son, Richard Plantagenet, Duke of York, Protector of England, who fell at the battle of Wakefield 1460, leaving the following children (all of Montagu blood) by his wife Cicily, dau. of Ralph Nevill, Earl of Westmoreland, (see below) viz: Edward IV. King of England; Edmund Earl of Rutland, slain at Wakefield when only 12 years old; George Duke of Clarence who married Isabel, grand dau of Alice Montague (dau. of Gen'l Thomas Montagu) and was drowned in a barrel of wine; Richard III., King of England; Anne, married to the Duke of Exeter; Margaret, married to Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy; and Elizabeth, married to John de la Pole, Duke of Suffolk, who had by her, two sons; John, Earl of Lincoln, Lord Lieut. of Ireland, who was declared heir to the Crown by King Richard III. but lost his life in the battle of Stoke, 1487; Edmund Delapole who succeeded his father as Duke of Suffolk in 1491. He being an heir to the Crown was artfully secured in the Tower by King Henry VII and was beheaded in 1513 by Henry VIII. 

The Princess Elizabeth, dau of King Edward IV., of Montagu blood as above stated, married Henry Tudor, Earl of Richmond, who became Henry VII., King of England, thus uniting the Houses of Lancaster and York, the red and white rose. She became the mother of King Henry VIII; also the mother of Margaret, married to King James, IV. of Scotland, who became the grandmother of Mary Queen of Scots; and also the mother of Elizabeth, married to Lewis the XII, King of France. Thus from the marriage of Philippa Montagu to the Earl of March, there was descended a long line of royal personages that includes the Kings and Queens of England, though more remote, to the present day.
