    • Fact 2:
      According to Burke's Dormant and Extinct Peerages: Hugh Le Despenser the Elder "paid a fine of 2,000 marks to the king, in the 15th of Edward I (1286-1287], for marrying, without license, Isabel, dau. of William de Beauchamp, Earl of Warwick, and widow of Patrick Cheworth; by this lady he had an only son, the too celebrated" Hugh Le Despenser the Younger. Elsewhere in the article it is remarked that Despenser the Elder "was in his ninetieth year" when he was executed upon St. Dennis's Day [October 9], 1326, and that Despenser the Younger was executed upon St. Andrew's Eve [November 29], 1326.
