Name: John ROYNON , of Bickfold 1 2

Death: BEF 1396 in Kelynack, St Just, Cornwall, England 2
John Roynon, of Bickfold. [Burke's Peerage]
NOTE: I don't find Bickfold on any maps or other sources, nor do I find the Roynon name before John, so I believe that the following indicates the father of John Roynon, known as John of Bickfold in 1371:
In 1236 Geoffrey de la Rode held a fee at SANDFORD, in 1482 called SAMPFORD BICKFOLD. In 1280 and 1284-5 Henry of Bickfold held 1 knight's fee in Sandford, part of which was subinfeudated to John of Bickfold. In 1303 John of Bickfold and Roger of Bickfold held Sandford as ½ knight's fee of Robert Fitzpayn, the tenant in chief; Roger was one of the lords in 1316, and Maud of Bickfold was one of the main taxpayers in Sandford in 1327. John of Bickfold had an interest in a manor called Bickfold which William Sambrook and his wife settled in reversion on their daughter Richard in 1371. In 1428 and 1431 Thomas Sambrook of Bickfold and Edward Culliford of Sandford held ½ knight's fee formerly held by John and Roger of Bickfold.

NOTE: Elsewhere in british-history.ac.uk I find the manor called SANDFORD BICKFOLD, not as SAMPFORD BICKFOLD, so I have used that name.
