Families covered: Herbert of Raglan, Jenkin of Gwarinddu, Thomas of Llansaintffraid

We used to show on this page the widely-reported 'fact' that the following Jenkin ap Adam was son of Adam Fitzherbert, a descendant of Herbert, Lord Chamberlain of King William Rufus. TCP (Pembroke, vol X page 400 note b) reports: "A spurious pedigree from Herbert the Chamberlain (of Henry I), who is given an equally false descent from Herbert, Count of Vermandois, is set forth by Nicholas, Counties and County Families of Wales, vol ii, pp. 776-77." On 12.02.07 we moved the pedigree of Adam FitzHerbert to FitzHerbert04 to make it clear that we do not wish to imply that we support that apparently-spurious connection.

  BE1883 reports that Sir William had 2 wives: Gwladys and Margaret. BLG1952 also shows 2 wives: Elizabeth and Gladys. Provisionally we show 3 wives as follows:
  m1. Elizabeth Bluet (d 24.05.1419, dau of Sir John Bluet of Daglingworth, widow of Sir James Berkeley and Thomas ap Harry)
  m2. Gwladys (dau of Sir David 'Gam' ap Llewelyn ap Hywel ap Einion Sais, widow of Sir Roger Vaughan of Bredwardine)
  a. Sir William Herbert of Raglan, 1st Earl of Pembroke (b c1423, d 27.07.1469)

  d. John Herbert (a 1469)
  e. Elizabeth Herbert or Thomas
  m. Sir Henry or Harry Stradling of St. Donat's
  f. Margaret Herbert
  Margaret is shown by BE1883 as daughter of Margaret, by BLG1952 (which does not mention her mother Margaret) as daughter of Gladys. Having previously favoured the former, we now follow the latter which is supported by Visitation (Michael Powell Siddons (1996, 'Visitations by the Heralds in Wales'), South Wales and Herefordshire, 1531, 'Herbert, Earls of Pembroke', p100) though that also does not mention Margaret.
  m. Sir Henry Woogan or Wogan of Wiston
  m3. Margaret (dau of Thomas ap Griffith)
  g. Maud Herbert
  Maud is not mentioned by BE1883. BLG1952, which does not mention her mother Margaret, shows her as daughter by Gladys but as younger than her sister Margaret.
  m. Howel of Blaina Gwent
  E. Gwenllian
  m. Meurig ap Howel Fychan of Penrhos Ffwrdios
