      William de Mowbray
      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
      William de Mowbray, 6th Baron of Thirsk, 4th Baron
      Mowbray (c. 1173–c. 1224) was an Norman Lord and
      English noble who was one of the twenty five executors of
      the Magna Carta. He was described as being as small as a
      dwarf but very generous and valiant.[1]

      Family and early life
      William was the eldest of the one daughter and three or four
      sons of Nigel de Mowbray, by Mabel, thought to be
      daughter of William de Patri, and grandson of Roger de
      Mowbray.[2]
      Career under Richard I
      William appears to have been in the company of Richard I
      in Speyer, Germany, on 20 November 1193 during
      Richard's period of captivity on his return from Palestine.[3]
      In 1194 he had livery of his lands. paying a relief of £100.
      He was immediately called upon to pay a sum nearly as
      large as his share of the scutage levied towards Richard's
      ransom, for the payment of which he was one of the
      hostages.[4] William was later a witness to Richard's treaty
      with Baldwin of Flanders in 1197.[3]
      Career under John
      In 1215 Mowbray was prominent with other north-country barons in opposing King John. He was appointed
      one of the twenty-five executors of the Magna Carta, and as such was specially named among those
      excommunicated by Pope Innocent III. His youngest brother, Roger, has sometimes been reckoned as one of
      the twenty-five, apparently by confusion with, or as a substitute for, Roger de Mumbezon. Roger died without
      heirs about 1218, and William received his lands.[4][5]
      Career under Henry III
      In the First Barons' War, Mowbray supported Louis. Mowbray was taken prisoner in the Battle of Lincoln
      (1217), and his estates bestowed upon William Marshal the younger; but he redeemed them by the surrender of
      the lordship of Bensted in Surrey to Hubert de Burgh, before the general restoration in September of that
      year.[4]
      In January 1221, Mowbray assisted Hubert in driving his former co-executor, William of Aumâle, from his last
      stronghold at Bytham in Lincolnshire.[4]
      Benefactor, marriage and succession
      William de Mowbray founded the chapel of St. Nicholas, with a chantry, at Thirsk, and was a benefactor of his
      grandfather's foundations at Furness Abbey and Newburgh, where, on his death in Axholme about 1224, he was
      buried.[4][3]
      He married Avice, a daughter of William d'Aubigny, 3rd Earl of Arundel, of the elder branch of the d'Aubignys.
      By her he had two sons, Nigel and Roger. The ‘Progenies Moubraiorum’ makes Nigel predecease his father,
      and Nicolas and Courthope accept this date; but Dugdale adduces documentary evidence showing that he had
      livery of his lands in 1223, and did not die (at Nantes) until 1228. As Nigel left no issue by his wife Mathilda or
      Maud, daughter of Roger de Camvile, he was succeeded as sixth baron by his brother Roger II, who only came
      of age in 1240, and died in 1266. This Roger's son, Roger III, was seventh baron (1266-1298) and father of
      John I de Mowbray, eighth baron.[4]
      There has been some speculation that de Mowbray was the inspiration for the character of Tyrion Lannister in
      Game of Thrones.
