Richard de Luci (1089 - 14. July 1179) (also Richard de Lucy) was first noted as
Sheriffof the County of Essex.
His wife Rohese, who is named in several documents, might have been a sister of Faramus of Boulogne. When Henry II came to the throne in 1154, he was made Chief
Justiciarof Englandjointly with Robert de Beaumont, Earl of Leicester. When de Beaumont died in 1168, Richard continued to hold the office in his own right.Powicke "Handbook of British Chronology" p. 69]
He resigned his office between September 1178 and Easter of 1179, and retired to
Lesnes Abbeyin Kent, where he died and was buried three months later 14 July 1179.
Walter de Lucywas abbot of Battle Abbey.Knowles "The Monastic Order in England" p. 589] His second son was Godfrey de Lucy(d. 1204), Bishop of Winchester.
His mother was Aveline, the niece and heiress of William Goth. In February 1130/31, Henry I in the charter for Séez Cathedral refers to Richard de Luci and his mother Aveline.
An early reference to the de Luci family refers to the render by Henry I of the Lordship of Dice, Norfolk to Richard de Lucie, Governor of Falais, Normandy, after defending it with great valour and heroic conduct when besieged by Geoffrey, Earl of Anjou. Later in 1153-4 he was granted Chipping Ongar, Essex by William, son of King Stephen and his wife, Maud of Boulogne where be built Ongar castle. He later became the Sheriff of both Essex and Hertfordshire in 1156.
