    • PLANTAGENET ANCESTRY - EDMUND DE ARUNDEL (or FITZ ALAN), KNT., 9th Earl of Arundel, of the Castle and honor of Arundel Sussex, of CIun and Oswestry, Shropshire, Captain General north of the Trent, Chief justice of North and South Wales, son and heir, born at Marlborough Castle 1 May 1285. He married in 1305 ALICE DE WARENNE, daughter of William de Warenne, Knt., of Medmenham, Buckinghamshire (descendant of Geoffrey Plantagenet), by Joan, daughter of Robert de Vere, Earl of Oxford. They had three sons, Richard, Knt., Edmund (clerk) [Treasurer of Chichester, Warden of the Hospital of St. Nicholas, Portsmouth], and Michael (clerk), and five daughters, Alice, Katherine (wife of Henry Husee, Knt., 2nd Lord Husee and Andrew Peverell, Knt., Aline, Elizabeth, and Mary. Her maritagium included the manors of High Roding, Margaretting, Ovesham Hall (in Matching), Prittlewell, and Woolston (in Chigwell), Essex. He was knighted with Edward, the King's son, and many others in 1306, prior to an expedition to Scotland. He was summoned to Parliament on 9 Nov. 1306 as Earl of Arundel. In 1308 he officiated as Chief Butler at the coronation of Edward II. For a long time, he was in opposition to the King and was violent against Peter de Gavaston, Earl of Cornwall, who had beaten him in a tournament. In 1314 he was pardoned for acquiring the manor of Wing, Buckinghamshire without license. In 1321 he changed sides, being thereafter one of the few nobles who adhered to the king. SIR EDMUND DE ARUNDEL, 9th Earl of Arundel, was captured in Shropshire by Queen Isabel's party and beheaded without a trial at Hereford 17 Nov. 1326. He was subsequently attainted and his honours became forfeited. He was buried initially at the Franciscan church at Hereford, and, after repeated appeals to Queen Isabel and her son, Edward, by the abbot and convent of Haughmond, his remains were secured for reburial at Haughmond Abbey, Shropshire. His widow, Alice, was living in 1330, but died before 23 May 1338. Sources: J. Watson Memoirs of the Earls of Warren and Surrey and Their Descs. (1782). G.

      Edmund Fitz Alan, 9th/2nd Earl of Arundel; born 1 May 1285; knighted 1306, Capt General north of Trent 1316, having origianally opposed Edward II and his favourite Piers Gaveston changed sides and was on of only a handful of magnates who stayed loyal to Edward; Chief Justiciar of North and South Wales 1323, Warden of Welsh Marches 1325; married 1305 Alice, sister and in her issue eventual heir of John de Warenne, 8th Earl of Surrey of the 1088 creation, and was summarily beheaded at Hereford 17 Nov 1326, after being taken prisoner by adherents of Queen Isabella (wife but opponent of Edward II), following which he was posthumously stripped of his lands and titles. [Burke's Peerage]


      Edmund Fitz-Alan, 8th Earl of Arundel. We find this nobleman, from the 34th Edward I [1306], to the 4th of the ensuing reign [1311], constantly engaged in the wars of Scotland; but he was afterwards involved in the treason of Thomas, Earl of Lancaster, yet not greatly to his prejudice, for, in the 10th Edward II [1317], his lordship was constituted lieutenant and captain-general to the king, from the Trent northwards, as far as Roxborough, in Scotland, and for several years subsequently, he continued one of the commanders of the English army in Scotland, in which service he so distinguished himself, that he obtained a grant from the crown of the confiscated property of Lord Badlesmere, in the city of London and county of Salop, as well as the escheated lands of John, Lord Mowbray, in the Isle of Axholme, and several manors and castles, part of the possessions (also forfeited) of Roger, Lord Mortimer, of Wigmore. But those royal grants led, eventually, to the earl's ruin, for, after the fall of the unhappy Edward into the hands of his enemies, Lord Arundel, who was implacably hated by the queen and Mortimer, suffered death by decapitation at Hereford, in 1326. His lordship m. 1305, the Lady Alice Plantagenet, sister and sole heir of John, last Earl of Warren and Surrey of that family, by whom he had issue, Richard, his successor; Edmund (Sir), m. Sibil, dau. of William Montacute, Earl of Salisbury, and had one dau., Alice, m. to Leonard, Lord Carew; Alice, m. to John de Bohun, Earl of Hereford; Jane, m. to Warine Gerrard, Lord L'Isle; and Alaive, m. to Sir Roger le Strange. His lordship was s. by his eldest son, Richard Fitz-Alan. [Bernard Burke, Dormant and Extinct Peerages, Burke's Peerage, Ltd, London, 1883, p. 200, Fitz-Alan, Earls of Arundel]

      He was the son of Richard Fitzalan, 8th Earl of Arundel and Alisona of Saluzzo, and succeeded to his father's estates and titles in 1302. Arundel bore the royal robes at Edward II's coronation, but he soon fell out with the king's favorite Piers Gaveston. In 1310 he was one of the Lords Ordainer, and he was one of the 5 earls who allied in 1312 to oust de Gaveston. Arundel resisted reconciling with the king after de Gaveston's death, and in 1314 he along with some other earls refused to help the king's Scottish campaign, which contributed in part to the English defeat at Bannockburn. A few years later Arundel allied with king Edward's new favorites, Hugh le Despenser and his son of the same name, and had his son and heir Richard married to a daughter of the younger Hugh le Despenser. He reluctantly consented to the Despenser's banishment in 1321, and joined the king's efforts to restore them in 1321. Over the following years Arundel was one of the king's principal supporters, and after the capture of Roger Mortimer in 1322 he received a large part of the forfeited Mortimer estates. He also held the two great offices governing Wales, becoming justice of Wales in 1322 and warden of the Welsh marches in 1325. After Mortimer's escape from prison and invasion of England in 1326, amongst the barons only Arundel and his brother-in-law Warenne remained loyal to the king. Their defensive efforts were ineffective, and Arundel was captured and executed at the behest of queen Isabella. Arundel married Alice, sister and eventual heiress of John de Warenne, 8th Earl of Surrey or Warenne. His estates and titles were forfeited when was executed, but they were eventually restored to his eldest son Richard Fitzalan, 10th Earl of Arundel.
      (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

      Edmund FitzAlan, 9th Earl of Arundel[a] (1 May 1285 – 17 November 1326) was an English nobleman prominent in the conflict between Edward II and his barons. His father, Richard FitzAlan, 2nd Earl of Arundel, died in 1302 while Edmund was still a minor. He therefore became a ward of John de Warenne, Earl of Surrey, and married Warenne's granddaughter Alice. In 1306 he was styled Earl of Arundel, and served under Edward I in the Scottish Wars, for which he was richly rewarded.

      After Edward I's death, Arundel became part of the opposition to the new king Edward II, and his favourite Piers Gaveston. In 1311 he was one of the so-called Lords Ordainers who assumed control of government from the king. Together with Thomas, Earl of Lancaster, he was responsible for the death of Gaveston in 1312. From this point on, however, his relationship to the king became more friendly. This was to a large extent due to his association with the king's new favourite Hugh Despenser the Younger, whose daughter was married to Arundel's son. Arundel supported the king in suppressing rebellions by Roger Mortimer and other Marcher Lords, and eventually also Thomas of Lancaster. For this he was awarded with land and offices.

      His fortune changed, however, when the country was invaded in 1326 by Mortimer, who had made common cause with the king's wife, Queen Isabella. Immediately after the capture of Edward II, the queen, Edward III's regent, ordered Arundel executed, his title forfeit and his property confiscated. Arundel's son and heir Richard only recovered the title and lands in 1331, after Edward III had taken power from the regency of Isabella and Mortimer. In the 1390s, a cult emerged around the late earl. He was venerated as a martyr, though he was never canonised.
