        ID: I13153
        Name: *Fulk LE STRANGE
        Sex: M
        Birth: ABT 1267 in Longnor, Shropshire, England
        Death: 23 JAN 1324 in Blakemere, Weobley, Herefordshire, England
        Occupation: 1st Baron le Strange ?
        Summoned to Parliament as Lord Strange of Blackmere 1309-1314.

        A licence is entered on the Patent Rolls of July 14, 1294, for Fulk le Strange, going on the King's service to Gascony, to sell, cut down, and carry timber to the value of œ40 out of his wood of Chawton, within the metes of the forest of Porchester, in those places where it will be to the least damage of the said forest.
        On May 4, 1309, Fulk was placed with others on a commission of Oyer and Terminer respecting Ivo de Sutton's misappropriation of moneys. On July 30 of that year he was summoned to be at Newcastle-on-Tyne, 'equis et armis,' on Michaelmas day, to proceed against the Scots who do not observe the truce. On September 6, 1309, he attested the important family arrangement for assuring Knockin to John le Strange (VI), and enfeoffing the latter's brother Hamon in the manor of Hunstanton, and he also witnessed the further documents of November 30 and December 88 for carrying that arrangement into effect. He was one of the three le Strange knights present at the tournament at Stepney in June, 1309.
        Fulk le Strange, mindful of the blood-ties which connected him with the Welsh lords of Upper Powys, backed up his first cousin, Griffith de la Pole, in his attempt to deprive John Charlton of Pool Castle, which John claimed by right of his wife Hawise Gadarn (i.e. the mighty), granddaughter of Hawise le Strange and Griffith ap Gwenwynwyn, also a cousin of Fulk's (his aunt Hawise's granddaughter). Charlton was a prominent courtier, the King's chamberlain, and his pushful policy was naturally resented by the Shropshire lords of settled position like the le Stranges. An amnesty was granted on November 6, 1313, to Griffith de la Pole and Fulk le Strange and their adherents for the siege of Pool Castle, and for all deeds of arms in the lands of Powys and la Pole; and for John de Charlton, who held the castle during such siege, and his adherents, touching all acts done by them at that time.
        By his wife, Eleanor Giffard, Fulk had three sons and one daughter--(1) his eldest son, John, who succeeded him in Whitchurch, (2) Fulk, had had Longnor settled on him by his father two years before the latter's death, and also held the manor of Betton Strange, and (3) Hamon, who acquired Cheswardine, by the remainder to him conveyed at the time of his father's feoffment therein by John, son of Roger le Strange, of Ellesmere, in 1315.
        His heir was his son John, aged eighteen at the feast of St. Paul last [January 25, 1324].

        Fulk, the son of Robert le Strange and Alianora, eventually inherited his mother's third of Whitchurch, and apparently purchased the two other thirds, as at his death in 1324 the inquest finds him to have been seised of the whole manor.
