Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1981, Micropaedia, Vol VI, p1022, Montfort Simon De (Earl of Leicester): "The son of the elder Simon de Montfort, Simon moved to England in 1229 and acquired the earldom of Leicester, which had formerly belonged to the family of his father's mother..."
Macropaedia, Vol XII, p408: "...Simon was wholly French by birth and education. On coming of age, he rennounced to his eldest brother Amaury his claims on the family lands in return for the sole right to revive the Montfort claim to the English earldom of Leicester. This claim derived from his father's mother, Amicia, sister of Robert IV (died 1204), the last Beaumont earl of Leicester, whose lands had been divided between Amicia and her younger sister Margaret, countess of Winchester. King John had recognized Simon's father as earl (c 1205) but had deprived him as a French subject (1207), and the Montfort claim had then lapsed..."

"Young Simon soon discovered, however, that there was a worm at the core of his apple of content. The Leicester estates, spreading over a dozen counties, had been divided several generations back between Amicia and a young sister."
