    Dear John et al.,

    Back of the beginning of this thread John Ravilious wrote:

    "1.2.1 Sir Peter de Fissacre

    [Knights II:27]

    Spouse: Joan de Okeston [widow of Sir Richard de Champernoun]"

    It appears Joan was not an Okeston (Oxton) but the granddaughter of King John I 'Lackland'.

    Way back in the primodeal beginnings of SGM on 1 Aug 1995, taf wrote:

    "RICHARD DE CHAMBERNOUN, second son, was granted Modbury, co.Devon, and Inceworth, co. Cornwall in right of his wife. He married Joan, (half-)sister of James de Okeston (Oxton) of Modbury. Joan's mother, also named Joan, and widow of Sir Reginald de Valletort, married secondly Alexander de Oxton, but was mistress of RICHARD (258-27), Earl of Cornwall. Pole (p. 309) reports a grant of 1284/5 in which Joan, wife of Richard Champernoun, is called "sister" by Edmund, Earl of Cornwall, legit. son of the Earl Richard, which appears to be conclusive evidence of her being illegitimate daughter of RICHARD (258-27). For a discussion of her paternity see: DCNQ xviii:108-112, and xix:319-321, and Cornwall Feet of Fines, p. 121-2."

    I have seen nothing to disprove the earl of Cornwall link and I offer it as a further link in putting the full picture of the Fissacre descendants together.
