Sir Richard II Lord Bures De Waldegrave

June 27, 2014 , , ,

My 19th great-grandfather was Speaker of the House of Commons, and asked the king to excuse him from that duty.  Richard II refused to excuse him.  He is buried on the north side of the parish church St. Mary at Bures in Essex.  These Waldegraves must be added to the buried in church tour of Europe I need to make someday.

Sir Richard Waldegrave (died 2 May 1401) was a member of Parliament for Lincolnshire in 1376, and Speaker of the House of Commons from 1381 to 1382, during the reign of King Richard II.
Life
His father Sir Richard Waldegrave was returned to parliament in 1335 for Lincolnshire. Richard the son resided at Smallbridge in Suffolk, and was returned to parliament as a knight of the shire in the parliament of February 1376. He was elected to the first and second parliaments of Richard II and to that of 1381. In 1381 he was elected speaker of the House of Commons, and prayed the king to discharge him from the office; the first instance, according to James Alexander Manning, of a speaker desiring to be excused. The king, however, insisted on his fulfilling his duties.
During his speakership parliament was chiefly occupied with the revocation of the charters granted to the villeins by Richard during Wat Tyler’s rebellion. It was dissolved in February 1382. Waldegrave represented Suffolk in the two parliaments of 1382, in those of 1383, in that of 1386, in those of 1388, and in that of January 1389–90.
He died at Smallbridge on 2 May 1402, and was buried on the north side of the parish church of St. Mary at Bures in Essex. He married Joan Silvester of Bures, by whom he had a son, Sir Richard Waldegrave.

Great addition to your family tree. Is there any information as to why Sir Richard wanted out of the speakership?

Maybe someone made him an offer he could not refuse without resigning. I have seen that myself.
