Douglas Richardson, Royal Ancestry, Volume II, page 291, states in a paragraph on Henry de Erdington and his wife Joan de Wolvey, that "They had one son, Giles, Knt., and one daughter, ____ (wife of John de Grafton)."

Normally, It's a delight to find something in Richardson, but not here!  First of all, Henry de Erdington seems to also have a daughter, Matilda, referenced by other credible sources.  Secondly, I wish I knew Richardson's source for this so I could see what led him to be confident that there was a marriage without the daughter being named.  But most importantly, there seem to be two John de Grafton's of the same age not terribly far from each other.  Does anyone have a thought as to which one might be the spouse?

I was working on one of the John de Grafton's.  This one took his name from a hamlet about 3 miles northwest of Shrewsbury, Shropshire.  There were several generations of the family, documented in various Visitations, and while none of them had birth years, I gave them 30 years per generation, it all worked out and I had John born about 1300, and Henry de Erdington's daughter born 1310.  Lovely.

There apparently was a more important family associated with Grafton Manor in Worcestershire which also went by the name de Grafton.  And this family, too had a son John de Grafton, whose birth could be estimated as, say, 1295.  

Neither son is listed in his respective sources with a named wife, or a wife at all, for that matter, though they both had descendants.

The link is to the John I was working on, but I've accumulated information on the other John (who does not have a Wikitree profile yet) under Research Notes on the same profile.

Your help in solving this puzzle -- or even shining more light on it -- would be most appreciated!

Whichever John de Grafton it was, he had a son William.  See D511 in Ancient Deeds http://www.british-history.ac.uk/ancient-deeds/vol3/pp465-477
