     Chris Phillips wrote to the Gen-Medieval Mailing list: Under "Mare or de la Mare" (CP v. 8, p. 463) appears John de la Mare, son of Matthew de la Mare by Florence, eldest daughter and coheir of Roger de Akeni or Akeny of Bradwell. Some further information about Matthew is given in a chart pedigree. (This John married Pernel de Dunstanville, the widow of Robert de Montfort (d. 1274), described as a younger son of Piers de Montfort [thus presumably a younger brother of the Piers who married Maud/Matilda de la Mare].)
Although these two Matthew de la Mares are contemporaries, it does appear that they are different men, so that Maud/Matilda was not the sister of John de la Mare of Bradwell
.

Maud de la Mare

(circa 1242 - )
     Maud de la Mare was born circa 1242. She is sometimes described as the daughter & heir of Matthew, son of Henry de la Mare.
Terry Mair wrote: In my charts I have Mathilda De La Mare born abt. 1242 who married Peter de Montfort, some of the information I have found says she is a sister to John Lord of Bradwell, and that she was the daughter of Matthew, is this correct, in the Victorian county records she is only refered to as being the granddaughter of Henry De La Mare, so I guess my question is, is John her brother or are these two completely different families?
Chris Phillips responded: Complete Peerage vol. 9, p. 127 has Peter/Piers married, circa 1260, to Maud, daughter and heir of Matthew, son of Henry de la Mare, "with whom he had Ashtead in Surrey" (citing Victoria County History of Surrey, vol. 3, p. 248). It comments that their son John appears to have been of age in 1284/5.
Then under "Mare or de la Mare" (vol. 8, p. 463) appears John de la Mare, son of Matthew de la Mare by Florence, eldest daughter and coheir of Roger de Akeni or Akeny of Bradwell. Some further information about Matthew is given in a chart pedigree. (To complicate matters, this John married Pernel de Dunstanville, the widow of Robert de Montfort (d. 1274), described as a younger son of Piers de Montfort [thus presumably a younger brother of the Piers who married Maud/Matilda de la Mare].) Although these two Matthew de la Mares are contemporaries, it does appear that they are different men, so that Maud/Matilda was not the sister of John de la Mare of Bradwell. This was discussed by Richard Borthwick in 1999.

Douglas Richardson on the GEN-Medieval mailing list also stated:
It is commonly stated that Maud de la Mare was the daughter and heiress of Sir Matthew de la Mare (died 1270), of Bradwell, Essex, by his wife, Florence de Akeny. This error is found in many sources, one of them being Leo's great website. That Sir Matthew de la Mare was actually survived by a son and heir, John, is indicated by a well documented chart found in Complete Peerage, 8 (1932): foll. pg. 464.
The confusion over Maud's parentage appears to have been caused by the fact that Sir Matthew de la Mare was one of the executors of Maud's father's estate. In that capacity, Sir Matthew de la Mare founded a perpetual chantry at Ashtead, Surrey in 1261 in honor of Sir Henry de la Mare (Maud's real father), his ancestors and descendants.
That Maud de la Mare was actually the daughter of Sir Henry de la Mare died 1257), is proven by a document dated 1265 found in Calendar of Close Rolls, 1264-1265 (1937), pg. 55, which reads as follows:
"Pro Matilli filia Henrici de la Mare. - Rex Willelmo de Wenling', escaetori suo citra Trentam, salutem. Monstravit nobis Matildis filia Henrici de la Mare quod, cum dudum contulissemus eidem Henrico custodiam terrarum Willelmi Ortye defuncti qui de nobis tenuit in capite habendam sibi et assignatis suis cum feodis militum, wardis et aliis ad dictam custodiam pertinentibus, et idem Henricus dudum ante mortem suam custiodiam illam assignasset eidem Matildi habendam usque
ad legitimam etatem heredem ejusdem Willelmi ..."

The above document states that before his death, Henry de la Mare
assigned custody of the lands of William de l'Orty deceased to his daughter, Maud, until the heir of the said William came of age. I have elsewhere shown that the Henry de la Mare who had possession of the de l'Orty lands was Sir Henry de la Mare, the royal justice, who died in 1257. She was the daughter of Henry de la Mare.
     Maud de la Mare married Piers de Montfort, son of Sir Piers de Montfort Lord of Beaudesert and Alice de Audley, circa 1260.
