Early Life

Father: Richard Fitzalan, 11th/4th Earl of Arundel (1346 - 21 Sep 1397)[2][4]
Mother: Elizabeth de Bohun (c1350 - 3 Apr 1385)[2][5]


m.1 Dec 1378 William Montacute (1360 - 06 Aug 1382) Salisbury, Wiltshire[6]
m.2 July 1384[7] at Arundel Castle, Sussex, Thomas Mowbray, 1st Duke of Norfolk (22 Mar 1366 - 22 Sep 1399)[2][8] Issue:[9]
  • Thomas, 7th Baron Mowbray 1385 - 1405
  • John, 2nd Duke of Norfolk 1389 - 1432
  • Elizabeth, wife of Sir Michael de la Pole, 3rd Earl of Suffolk[2]
  • Isabel , wife of Sir Henry Ferrers and of Sir James Berkeley, 1st (aka 6th) Baron Berkeley
  • Margaret, wife of Sir Robert Howard and of Sir John Grey
m.3 Aug 1401 Sir Robert Goushill[10] (1350 - 21 Jul 1403) Hoveringham, Nottinghamshire. Issue:[11]
  • Joan (1401 - Apr 1466), wife of Sir Thomas Stanley, 1st Baron
  • Elizabeth (1402 - After 1453), wife of Sir Robert Wingfield
m.4 before 1411 Sir Gerard Afflete[12][13]



Robert Goushill was removed as her son August 23, 2015. With three daughters born of her (brief) marriage to Robert Goushill (Richardson's Plantagenet Ancestry says Joyce & her two sisters sued their uncle Nicholas Goushill in 1408), it's doubtful that Robert was also hers. He is still attached as her husband's son.

son Robert: With three daughters born of her (brief) marriage to Robert Goushill (Richardson's Plantagenet Ancestry says Joyce & her two sisters sued their uncle Nicholas Goushill in 1408), it's doubtful that Robert was also hers. I would suggest that, if he existed, he was born before Robert's marriage to Elizabeth and propose that he be detached as her son. Let me know if there's any objection to my detaching Goushill-24 as a son of Elizabeth FitzAlan.
