Among the most important developments of this period was the foundation of the guilds, beginning with the merchant guild of St. Mary's in 1340 and culminating in the amalgamation of four guilds as Holy Trinity Guild by 1392. The corporate sense fostered by membership of the guilds found expression in the charter of 1345 which confirmed town government in the hands of the dominant merchant class.

Douglas Richardson lists only Joan Poyning as a wife in Magna Carta Ancestry: A Study in Colonial and Medieval Families, 2nd Edition ... So, she is listed in the profile and de Hoo and the references for her are listed in a footnote.

Ferrers-396 and Ferrers-52 appear to represent the same person because: same person; need to merge fathers and resolve mother first.

I think that it is possible that Henry had 2 wives called Joan, Joan de Hoo and Joan de Poynings, on tudor place their full (but separate lines) are recorded. Simply put I do not think that there is a 3rd wife - Joan de Hoo Poynings, but more research could prove otherwise!

Henry is 23 degrees from Cari Starosta, 14 degrees from Marie-Antoinette d'Autriche and 6 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
