Peter (son of Sir Peter) Buzun was lord in the 19th of Edward I. and in 1308, he and Sarah his wife held the lordship of Yelverton in Norfolk; and of this family were the Buzuns of Devonshire, who held in the reign of Henry III. certain knights fees of the honour of Totness .

Obviously the Bozuns of Devonshire do not descend from Peter Bozun himself (a man becoming lord in 19 Edw I is not typically father of people of age in Hen III), but Francis Blomefield the above author, indicates that they descend from the same family, which must be at this point.
