  • Name: Amy de GAVESTON 1

    Amy de Gaveston, damsel of the Chamber to Queen Philippa, b. soon after 6 Jan 1312; m. in or before 1334, John de Driby, son of Robert of Wokefield, Berks, d. after 30 Nov 1357. [Ancestral Roots]

    Note: Brad Verity in a series of postings to soc.genalogy.medieval makes the case that Amy was an illegitimate daughter of Piers de Gaveston, in that she was not the daughter of Margaret de Clare because she did not share in her inheritance; plus her position as a lady of the household at court was much lower than the daughter of an Earl would merit -- more in keeping with an illegitimate daughter.
