Re: Sir Henry de Bohun
Okaydon'tbite my head off but from the following can you deduce if anyof thisiscorrect or is it totally out of line towhat ispassed off as fact for this line of the family genealogy?
From Encyclopaedia Britannica 1929 edition, Vol. 8, EDUC TO EXTR, PG. 9
"BY ELEANOR OF CASTILE EDWARD I HAD FOUR SONS, HIS SUCCESSOR EDWARD II ANDTHREE WHO DIED YOUNG AND NINE DAUGHTERS,
INCLUDING JOAN OR JOANNA 1272-1307 THE WIFE OF GILBERT DE CLARE EARL OF GLOUCESTER (d. 1295) AND THEN OF RALPH DE MONTHERMER;
MARGARET (1275-1318), THE WIFE OF JOHN II, DUKE OF BRABANT;
AND ELEANOR (1282-1316) WHO MARRIED JOHN I COUNT OF HOLLAND AND THEN HUMPHREY BOHUN EARL OF HEREFORD (d. 1322)"
FROM Encyclopaedia Britannica 1929 edition, VOL. 3, BALT TO BRAI PG. 789
"AT FALKIRK (1298) HUMPHREY VII REDEEMED HIS CHARACTER FOR LOYALTY. HISSON HUMPHREY BOHUN VIII WHO SUCCEEDED HIM IN THE SAME YEAR, WAS ALLOWED TO MARRY ONE OF THE KING'S DAUGHTERS, ELEANOR THE WIDOWED COUNTESS OF HOLLAND (1302)."
This information above on Bohun comes from J.E. Doyle's Official Baronage of England 1886, the Complete Peerage G. E. C(okayne), (1887-1898)
The reasonbeing one Hugh de Courtenay2nd Earl of Devon is supposed to be married to a granddaughter of Edward I, another named Eleanor. This is again in the above sourced works vol . 6, pg. 605 pointing out this information.
any helpful direction to other sources confirming the abovewould be greatly appreciated.
Thank you again foryour other response.
