The following is part of a post to SGM, 4 Jun 2011, by John Watson:
In 1391 an indenture was sealed between Richard Scrope and John Conyers "whereby Richard has sold to John the wardship of the person and lands of Margaret, cousin and heir to Thomas St Quentin, knight, of Hornby, in Richmondshire, which pertains to him because of the minority of Margaret. John has paid 200 marks to Richard for the wardship".

Middle Ages, (Boydell Press: 2008) pp. 105-6: Citing; NYCRO, MS ZBO, Bolton Cartulary, fo. 56r.
John Conyers married his ward, Margaret St. Quintin, who in 1391 was a minor (less than 14 years old). This fits in well with John St.
Quintin marrying Elizabeth in or around 1378 and having a daughter born around 1378-80.
