Birth and Parentage
John de Beauchamp, Knight, of Powick and Acton Beauchamp, Worcestershire, Alcester, Warwickshire, Kemerton, Gloucestershire, Brewham, Somerset, and East Coulston, Wiltshire, Knight of the King's Chamber, Keeper of Gloucester Castle, was born in or before 1330 (of military age in 1346, aged 23 in 1361). 
His parents married before May 21, 1329.  As the oldest child, a birth date of 1330 is a reasonable estimation.
1346 French Wars
John served in the French wars as early as 1346. 
1351 Marriage to Joan de Cherleton
John de Beauchamp, Knight, married (1st) about 17 April 1351 Joan de Cherleton, daughter of John de Cherleton, Knight, 2nd Lord Cherleton of Powis, by Maud, daughter of Roger de Mortimer, Knight, 1st Earl of March. 
1359 A Conflict About Markets
In 1359 he complained that Sir William le Botiller, or Wem, the younger, Robert de Knightgele, and others had prevented him from holding his market at Alcester, Warwickshire by driving away twenty of his cows, carrying away other goods, and assaulting his men.
Founded a Chantry
- "A perpetual chantry consisted of one or more priests, in a private free-standing chapel, or in an aisle of a greater church, (usually licensed by the local Bishop). A lesser option was the endowment of a fixed-term chantry, to fund masses sung (for the dead) by one or two priests at a side altar. Terms ranging from one to ten years were more common than the perpetual variety of chantry. 
1374 Second Marriage to Elizabeth
1386 License to cut timber
In 1386 he had license to cut timber on his manor of Brewham, Somerset. 
Sir John de Beauchamp died shortly before 7 Feb 1388/9.  In 1392 his widow, Elizabeth, delivered possession of the manors of Powick and Alcester to her step-son William Beauchamp.  She left a will dated 3 Sep 1411, proved 26 Sept 1411.
