Note: Some trees have her married to the Leicester John Berkeley in error.

From "Our Royal, Titled, Noble, and Commoner Ancestors and Cousins" (website, compiled by Mr. Marlyn Lewis, Portland, OR), the Leicestershire Berkeleys appear to be:

John, b c. 1361 (husband of Isabel, not Clifford. father of Lawrence)
his dad, John, b c. 1335 (husband of Elizabeth, not Betteshorne)
John Berkeley, b c 1310 (father of previous named John and son of Thomas Berkeley, b c 1280, & Isabel Hamelin) married Joan (Isabel) Burdet

I posted notes on Berkeley-305 & -308. Berkeley-6 is Elizabeth's husband.
posted by Liz (Noland) Shifflett
Husbands Berkeley-6 and Deberkeley-25 appear the same. Berkeley-305 (Sir John Berkeley) is a different person entireley and should probably be removed as a husband.
