bullet  General Notes:

Family
Lady Isabella, or Isabel de Beauchamp,[1] was born in about 1263 in Warwickshire, England. She was the only daughter of William de Beauchamp, 9th Earl of Warwick and Matilda FitzJohn[1] who married sometime between 1261 and 1268; two sisters who were nuns at Shouldham are mentioned in her father's will. She had a brother, Guy de Beauchamp, 10th Earl of Warwick who married Alice de Toeni, by whom he had seven children. Her paternal grandparents were William (III) de Beauchamp of Elmley Castle and Isabel Maudit, and her maternal grandparents were Sir John FitzGeoffrey, Lord of Shere, and Isabel Bigod.

Marriages and issue

Sometime before 1281, she married firstly Sir Patrick de Chaworth, Lord of Kidwelly in Carmarthenshire, South Wales.[2] The marriage produced one daughter:

Maud Chaworth (1282\endash 1322), married Henry, 3rd Earl of Lancaster,[3] by whom she had seven children.

Following Sir Patrick's death in 1283, Lady Isabella had in her possession four manors in Wiltshire and two manors in Berkshire, assigned to her until her dowry should be set forth along with the livery of Chedworth in Gloucestershire and the Hampshire manor of Hartley Mauditt which had been granted to her and Sir Patrick in frankmarriage by her father.

In 1286, she married secondly Sir Hugh le Despenser without the King's licence for which Sir Hugh had to pay a fine of 2000 marks.[1] He was created Baron Despenser by writ of summons to Parliament in 1295, thereby making Lady Isabella Baroness Despenser.
