Details of SC 8/64/3163
Alice de Lacy, Countess of Lincoln.
de Lacy, Countess of Lincoln, Alice
King and council
Nature of request:
Lacy requests that a speedy remedy be ordained for her so that she may be at her own will and amongst her friends, as she has been ravished by Frene, who has taken her from her castle of Bolingbroke and is detained by him in the Tower of London.
Hugh de Frene; John de Lacy, brother of the petitioner.
The petition apparently dates to c. 1335. In the Complete Peerage it is noted that Lacy was abducted by Freyne and consented to live with him in matrimony by 23 March 1336, and Freyne was dead by January 1337 at the latest (Complete Peerage, VII, p.687)
