(Sir) Hugh de Meinhill and Alice de Audley

(Sir) Hugh de Meinhill (Meynell).
Born (about 1303-S3)(before 1312-S1) in Langley Meynell (in Kirk Langley), Derbyshire, England; son of Hugh de Meynell and Joan Ward. (S1).

Inquisition Post Mortem.
"Writ, 12 May, 37 Edward III." [1363]
"The reversion after his death belongs to Thomas his son and the heirs of his body. Thomas is 23 years of age and more."
"The reversion belongs to Ralph Basset of Drayton, knight, by virtue of a grant of Ralph Basset of Drayton, his grandfather."
"He died on the feast of SS. Philip and James last. Richard de Meignill his son, aged 30 years and more, is his heir, but has nothing in co. Stafford by hereditary descent."
"A messuage and a carucate of land, held of Richard Meignill, knight, (fn. 6) for life, by homage and fealty. The reversion belongs to Thomas de Meignill, his son, and the heirs of his body."
"The manor, held jointly with Joan late his wife, and the heirs of their bodies, of the duke of Lancaster by homage and fealty."
"He died on 2 May, 37 Edward III. Heir, Richard de Meignill, knight, his son, as above." (S1).

Hugh has two sons inheriting different properties, in his Inquisition Post Mortem. That son Richard is also said to be 30 "and more" (born bef. 1333), suggests that Hugh had two wives, Richard being born to the first, and Thomas inheriting lands received through the second marriage, to Alice. (S1).

Hugh died on 2 May (1363-S1)(1364-S3).
