But this Lord Mowbray is a johnny-come-lately since his male ancestry is
Stourton. Lord Stourton made a claim though his maternal line and was
granted termination of the Baronies of Mowbray and Segrave 3 Jan 1878.

But the Barony is the oldest by writ, having been established 24 June
1295, although CP states there is also a valid writ of 28 June 1283.
