Birth of son Gilbert 5th Lord Strange of Blackmere TALBOT


  • Ankaret Le Strange remained the Baroness of Blackmere during her firstmarriage to Richard Lord Talbot of Goodrich (spelled Goderich in thattime, and Godric in the earliest form) Lord Talbot.  Lord Talbot wasthe custodian of the Le Strange Castle of Blackmere as well as hisGoderich Castle.

    At her death she passed the Blackmere title to her second husbandThomas 6th Lord Furnival Neville.  At her death Thomas Neville becameLord Strange of Blackmere.  Thus the Blackmere title and lands passedfrom the Le Strange family into the Neville family.

    The date of marriage is a bit uncertain.  Two sources, connected withthe Le Strange family line, report the marriage to Richard Talbot wason or before 23 August 1383.  Other sources, Tudorplace andWorldroots, have seemed credible and careful.  However, with a birthdate for Ankaret of about 1350, the marriage date in 1383 would meanthat Ankaret did not marry until she was 33.  This is highly unusualfor that period.

    The date of 1383, However, is also attractive because it is one yearbefore the birth of the Talbots' first child John.  This also seemsexpected.
