Research Notes

Richardson and other sources show her husbands as (1) Patrick de Chaworth and (2) Hugh le Despenser. Lacking source citations, husbands Henry Lovet and William Blount (and his children) were detached from this profile. Also detached was Thomas Despencer-155 (now Despenser-41). Hugh & Isabel did not have a son named Thomas. Noland-165 20:33, 30 April 2015 (EDT)

I've detached the extra husbands & children. Thomas Despencer-155 needs parents now (I couldn't find who he belonged to with the info in his profile); William Blount-107 needs a wife (ditto), whom he may have married "in Belton, Rock, England" and a mother for his children:

Son Blount-386 Son Blount-366 Peter Blount-150 Walter Blount-103

Does anyone have a source for the marriage date in the datafield (before November 8, 1287), or know of an event that occurred on that date? Richardson has marriage as between 10 Sept. 1285 (record of Highworth Hundred Rolls) and 27 Jan. 1287 (date of fine for marrying without license).

Thanks, Liz

Richardson shows only Chaworth & Despenser as her husbands. Blount's children (attached to her) can't be hers. I posted on William's page that I was going to disconnect her as wife/mother. I couldn't find another Isabel Beauchamp who would fit the dates. If anyone runs across a source for William Blount m Isabel (even if not a Beauchamp), please let me know. Same with Henry Lovet. thanks!
