TitlesEdit

Mary became suo jure 5th Baroness Botreaux on the death of her great-grandmother, Margaret Botreaux, in 1478.[1]

Mary was the great-granddaughter of Sir William Moleyns, slain at the siege of Orleans on 8 May 1429, who married, on 1 May 1423, as his second wife, Anne Whalesborough (died c. 1487), the daughter and co-heir of John Whalesborough, esquire, of Whalesborough, Cornwall, by Joan, daughter of Sir John Raleigh. By Anne Whalesborough Sir William Moleyns had two daughters, Eleanor (died c. 1492) and Frideswide. Eleanor's marriage was granted to Thomas Chaucer, esquire, and before 5 November 1440 she married Robert Hungerford, 3rd Baron Hungerford, who was beheaded at Newcastle on 17 May 1464 after the Battle of Hexham. He was attainted, as was his son, Sir Thomas Hungerford (executed 1469), whereby all their honours became forfeited. On 7 November 1485 the attainders were reversed, and Mary became, in addition to her title of Baroness Botreaux, suo jure Baroness Hungerford and Moleyns.[2]

Marriage and childrenEdit

By papal dispensation dated 4 September 1475, Mary married Edward Hastings, 2nd Baron Hastings, son of William Hastings, 1st Baron Hastings, and Katherine Neville, daughter of Richard Neville, 5th Earl of Salisbury. Katherine was the widow of William Bonville, 6th Baron Harington. Edward Hastings and Mary Hungerford had two sons and a daughter:[3]

Mary married, secondly, on 1 May 1509, Sir Richard Sacheverell (d. 14 April 1534), second son of Ralph Sacheverell of Morley, Derbyshire, by whom she had no issue. Mary was living 30 June 1530, and died before 10 July 1533. She and her second husband were buried in the Collegiate Church of St. Mary in the Newarke (Newarke College) in Leicester.[6]
