Assuming the expected child was born post mortem in 1239 and named
Maud/Matilda, she would, with her husband Roger de Clifford, have sworn
a writ against Christiana Ledet prior to Trinity term 27 Henry III
. That scenario doesn't seem feasible to me.
In addition, she and her sister Juliana would have been co-heiresses of
their father Hugh de Gurnay. We know that Robert de Clifford was lord of
Mapledurham in 1251 (according to the Hundred Roll). How, then, does
her sister Juliana take Mapledurham to her husband William Bardolf?
