Maud de Clifford, daughter of Sir Roger de Clifford, Knt., 5th Lord Clifford and Maud de Beauchamp, died before 16 May 1442.1

Maud married Sir Robert Hylton, Knt., de jure 6th Lord Hylton, son of Sir William Hylton, Knt., 5th Lord Hylton and Denise de Hylton, before 13 April 1398.1

The Complete Peerage gives Maud's parents as shown here. In Royal Ancestry, Richardson does not list her as one of the children of Roger and Maud (de Beauchamp) Clifford.

For evidence, CP provides: "(i) Pardon to Robert Hilton kt., son of William de Hilton kt., in that he and Maud, late his wife, da. of Maud, Lady of Clifford, had acquired, without licence to them and their heirs male, two parts of the manor of Great Usworth and the manor of Bedick [by the enfeoffment of 13 Apr. 21 Ric. II]: and licence for him to hold the premises, in fee. (Durham Chancery Roll, no. 4-2, m. 17)."

At the time of 21 Richard II (1398), there were two Lady Cliffords, both widows: Maud, wife of Roger, and Elizabeth (de Roos), wife of Thomas, 6th Lord Clifford. While the second couple did have a daughter Maud, she is already accounted for as the wife of (1) John de Neville and (2) Richard of York.2,3


Sir Robert Hylton, Knt., de jure 6th Lord Hylton b. abt. 1385, d. 11 Aug 1448
