  3. Robert is known to have married, before December 1265, Alice de Merlay, aged 8 years, of Morpeth, but as she died shortly before 7 February 1267/68, it is believed that she was likely not the mother of his daughter Lucy. One source states that Robert had a mistress, namely Matilda Hansard, by whom two sons were born, while another source states that Matilda was Robert's second wife and the mother of Lucy. (Complete Peerage: Vol XII/1[735-739]; AR: Line 88[29-31]; Orde, 1846).

Project members working on the profile for Ralph Basset have concluded that Joan (currently Latimer-566) is not a daughter of William & Lucy (Thweng) Latimer, and that she should be disconnected from these profiles & her LNAB changed to Unknown.

It appears that Richardson does call her a "daughter"... "He [Ralph Basset] married Joan ____, daughter or kinswoman of William le Latimer, Knt., 3rd Lord Latimer, of Corby, Northamptonshire."[1] So while Richardson does include "daughter" in the sentence, he does not give her a last name & the William he means is the one who married Elizabeth Botetourt.[2]

Joan is not in the text for either this profile or William.

If no objection, I'll detach her.
