Joan (Geneville) de Mortimer was a member of aristocracy in England.


Biography

Her two younger sisters having been made nuns in the Priory of Aconbury, not necessarily willingly, Joan became sole heir of her parents to all their estates in England and Ireland. Nothing to do with her husband of course.

She received a papal indult for full remission of her sins in 1346.

As with other members of the Mortimer family, it is believed she was buried at Wigmore Abbey in Wigmore, Herefordshire.
