This is a correction to my post. We are not descended from Eudo de Welles in our line, but from his brother as follows.

He was the son of John Welles and Maud Ross.and John married Maud de ROS daughter of William Ross and Margery Badlesmere.
John de Welles, 5th Baron Welles (1352?1421) was an English soldier and noble. He married Margaret "Eleanor," daughter of John, Lord Mowbray by Elizabeth, Baroness Segrave.
At a banquet in Edinburgh and presumably after too much alcohol he issued, as Champion of England, the following challenge to David Lindsay (later 1st Earl of Crawford): ?Let words have no place; if ye know not the Chivalry and Valiant deeds of Englishmen; appoint me a day and a place where ye list, and ye shall have experience.? As a result of the challenge, on St George?s Day, 23rd April 1390, he fought David Lindsay in mock combat on horseback on London Bridge, losing the match by falling from his horse in their third charge against each other.
