Families covered: St. Maur (Seymour) of Rode

Milo de St. Maur (a temp King John who r. 1199-1216)
1. Peter de St. Maur of Weston and Kingston Seymour (a temp Henry III who r. 1216-1272)
  A. Maud de St. Maur

  a. Milicent de St. Maur
  m. Sir John de Perceval
After providing the above, BE1883 reports "Returning to the male line, though the connection between them does not appear, the next is .." and then reports the following Geffrey "and after him" Laurence, father of the 1st Lord. TCP does not contradict this but starts with Nicholas, son of Simon, brother of Geoffrey who is presumed to be the same person as the Geffrey mentioned by BE1883. Hence, whilst the following mainly comes from TCP and may beviewed as having some security, the connection above should be treated with caution.
2. Geoffrey de St. Maur
  m. _ de Rughdon (dau of William de Rughdon)
3. Simon de St. Maur
  A. Nicholas de St. Maur (d after 04.1267)

  (1) Thomas de St. Maur, '2nd Lord' (b c1304, dsp 07.1358)
  BE1883, whilst noting that Thomas was never summoned to Parliament, shows him as the 2nd Lord. TCP admits that, according to modern doctrine, he would be viewed as 2nd Lord but identifies his half-brother Nicholas as 2nd Lord. As cross-references from other sources vary as to which numbering system to follow, we show both.

  The following all comes from BE1883.
  m. Margaret Erlegh (dau of Sir John Erlegh, son of Sir John by Margaret, sister of Sir Gui de Bryan)
  (a) John Seymour
  BE1883 identifies John's wife as Elizabeth, dau of Thomas, Lord Cobham. We originally speculated that she was Elizabeth Cobham but, noting that that Elizabeth was heiress of a barony which has not (to our knowledge) been claimed, we now follow the suggestion (kindly brought to our attention by a contributor, DS (20.09.09)) that she was misdescribed by BE1883 and was in fact ...

  m. (1464) Walter Bluett of Holcombe (d 1487)
  (iii) Nicholas Seymour
  The following comes from Visitation (Yorkshire, 1563-4, St, Maur) although it requires the notes of the Harleian editor to make it clear that the following Thomas was of this generation. Thomas is identified as the 3rd son, after Lord Richard & Sir John.
  (iv) Thomas Seymour 'of Cleveland'
  m. Mary (widow of Robert Broughton)
