        Text: 9.WILLIAM DE MONTGOMERY, son of the above. Married to Philippa before 1314
        (when their son and heir was born). William was murdered in 1323 during the
        lifetime of his father.
        "Extract from the Plea Rolls. Coram Rege Hillary 18 E II
        Leic. The Sheriff had been ordered to arrest Peter son of Peter de Gresleye
        and Robert his brother, Joan, the wife of Walter de Monte Gomeri, and
        William de Northfolk, and produce them at Trinity term, to answer the appeal
        of Philippa formerly wife of William de Monte Gomeri for the death of
        William her husband, at which day Philippa appeared and the defendants did
        not appear and the Sheriff returned they could not be found and held nothing
        within his bailiwick, and he was ordered to put them on the exigend and if
        they did not appear, to outlaw them, and he now returned that the said Peter
        and William had not appeared at the county courts, and had been outlawed,
        but that the said Robert and Joan had appeared at the fifth court, and had
        surrendered themselves prisoners, and he had sent them coram Rege, and they
        were committed to the custody of the Marshall, who produced them before the
        Court, and the said Philippa likewise appeared and appealed the said Robert
        brother of Peter son of Peter de Gresleye, of procuring and abetting the
        death of her husband, and she stated that they were at the vill of Norton,
        near Twycrosse, in co. Leics on the Thursday before the Feast of the
        Exaltation of the Holy Cross , 17 E II in the manor house of Walter de Monte
        Gomeri, from which place the said Robert had feloniously procured and sent
        the said Peter son of Peter de Gresleye to kill her husband, and by which
        mission, procurement and assent, the said Peter son of Peter de Gresleye, on
        the Tuesday before the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, in the
        same year, and at the third hour, had feloniously struck her husband on the
        head in the vill of Oversheile in Co. Leicestre, on a heath called les
        Whitelondes, near the Abbey of Mirivale, with a sword of Cologne worth 6s.
        and of which he had died within the arms of the said Philippa." [The
        Gresleys of Drakelow, Wm Salt NS 1:44].
        Although Gresley was obviously guilty of the crime, the jury returned a
        verdict of not guilty on a technicality. Peter de Gresley was pardoned for
        it in 1327 and was himself murdered shortly after. Philippa appears to have
        subsequently married Richard le Breton, for he and Philippa were holding a
        third of the manor of Marchington (Marston Montgomery) and Sudbury as her
        dower in 1345. [H.J.H Garratt (ed), Derbyshire Feet of Fines 1323-1546;
        Issue of William:

        - Walter. See below.
        - William. Lands in Snelston granted to Walter and William his brother in
        tail mail by William, son of Serlo de Grendon, in an undated settlement.
        Probably the same William Mountegomery who in 1336 made an inspeximus of
        "Evidences" in the keeping of Sir John Gonuston, priest, of lands in
        Cobbeley (Cubley), Sudbury, Marston Montgomery, Snelston, Legh in Staffs.,
        and other lands in Derbs. and Staffs. [Nottinghamshire Archives
