Misc Notes on LYON Family

Count Ingelram

Ingleram aka Enguerrand

Ingleram aka Ingram

Ithleram Louvein

Ingleram de Lyon (Lions) aka Ithleram Louvein (1)*…

… Ingleram’s sister was "The Fair Maid of Brabant", Adelicia, Queen of England, second wife of Henry I "Beauclerc", King of England. Ingleram’s father was the Duke of Brabant, (also Duke of Lothier), Godfrey Louvein, who died in Jerusalem, Israel, on a Crusade.

The facts of the case, which have been elicited from the records of the Church of St. Martin d’Auchi (de Alceio), commonly called of Aumale, from its vicinity to the town of that name, are as follows: In or about the year 1000 a castle was built on the river Eu, now known as the Bresle, at the point where it divides the provinces of Normandy and Picardy, by a certain Guerinfroi (Guerinfrides), who also, in 1027, founded in its neighbourhood the Abbey of St. Martin d’Auchi. This Guerinfroi, who was Sire d’Aumale (not Count, as he has been incorrectly called), had an only daughter named Berta, who became the wife of Hugh II, Comte de Ponthieu, and mother by him of Enguerrand, or Ingleram, Sire d’Aumale in right of his mother, who married Adelaide, sister of the Conqueror, and was killed in an ambush at St. Aubin, near Arques, in 1053, leaving an only daughter, named Adelaide after her mother, and having settled on his wife the lands of Aumale in dower. The widow of Enguerrand, being still young, married secondly, and in the first year of her widowhood, Lambert, Count of Lens, in Artois, and brother of Eustace II, Count of Boulogne, and had by him a daughter, named Judith, whose hand was given by her uncle, William the Conqueror, to Waltheof, Earl of Northumberland. Count Lambert could scarcely have seen the birth of his child, for he was killed at Lille the following year, in a battle between Baldwin, Count of Flanders, and the Emperor Henry III. A widow for the second time, and still in the prime of life, she married, thirdly, Odo of Champagne, by whom she was the mother of Stephen, who, on the death of his elder sister Adelaide, became the first Comte d’Aumale, or Earl of Albemarle, the Seigneurie having been made a Comte by King William, but upon what occasion and at what time we have no evidence.

Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, was born the Honourable Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon on 4 August 1900, the ninth child and fourth daughter of Claude George Bowes-Lyon (1855-1944) and Nina Cecilia Bowes-Lyon (1862-1938), Lord and Lady Glamis.

Her parents became Earl and Countess of Strathmore and Kinghorne in 1904 on the death of Lord Glamis’s father, the 13th Earl.

The Bowes-Lyon family is descended from Robert II, King of Scotland from 1371 to 1390, whose daughter Lady Jean Stewart married his Chamberlain, Sir John Lyon of Forteviot, in 1376.

In 1372 Sir John had been granted the Royal estate of Glamis (home of Macbeth in the eleventh century) along with the title of Thane of Glamis. His grandson, Patrick, was created Baron Glamis in 1445 and the 9th Lord Glamis was created Earl of Kinghorne in 1606.

The 3rd Earl, a Lord of the Treasury and an Extraordinary Lord of Session, was created Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne, Viscount Lyon, Lord Glamis, Tannadyce, Sidlaw and Strathdichtie in 1677.

The family name was changed after the marriage of the 9th Earl in 1767 to Mary Eleanor Bowes, heiress of a wealthy landowning Member of Parliament.

The family name was changed again to Bowes-Lyon by the 13th Earl, who became Baron Bowes in 1887. In 1937 the earldom was created a title of the United Kingdom.

Lady Elizabeth’s mother was great-granddaughter of William Henry Cavendish Bentinck (1738-1809), 3rd Duke of Portland and Prime Minister in 1783 and in 1807-9.

Who was Lord Glamis in 1657? John Lyon, the 2nd Earl of Kinghorne. He was a close personal friend of the Marquis of Montrose, and was with him when the latter subscribed to the National Covenant in 1638. When Montrose broke with the Scots Parliament to fight for Charles I, the Earl of Kinghorne could not support him any longer and nearly bankrupted his estates supporting the Army of the Covenant against his friend. It has been said of the 2nd Earl of Kinghorne that he came “to his inheritance the wealthiest peer in Scotland, and he left it the poorest.” Glamis, under his tenure, was stripped of its furniture and allowed to fall into disrepair. Huntly (also called Castle Lyon), the family’s other holding in Perth, was also in a state of ruin.

John Lyon’s son, Patrick, received a new patent of nobility in 1677, and was known after as the Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne, Viscount Lyon, Baron Glamis, Tannadyce, Sidlaw and Strathdicthie. When he inherited his titles, he also inherited debts amounting to £40,000, a huge sum at the time. He was the re-builder of Glamis; he paid off his father’s debts through skilful management of his estates. Patrick Lyon is, in short, substantially responsible for the Glamis Castle we see today. Interestingly, Patrick’s mother was Lady Elizabeth Maule, a daughter of another Angus family of great influence – the Panmures – as well as a family who, like the Lyons, were Jacobites after the Reformation.

So, was Margret a Lyon? Of this influential family dating back to the times of the Bruce? Of the same family that represents the maternal line of the present Queen Elizabeth? What IS the centre image on the gravestone? It appears to be a shield, can it be arms?
