    Jim ~

    My files notes show that Katherine de Cliveden, Lady Berkeley, presented to the chapel of Tockington, Gloucestershire in 1375.

    As such, Katherine, Lady Berkeley was obviously not dead before 27 August 1369.

    The document you present does indicate, however, that Eleanor Ashton (or Assheton), the first wife of Lady Katherine's son, John de
    Berkeley, had died before 27 August 1369.

    "Sir Robert de Dasshton" named in this document was Eleanor Ashton's father, Robert de Ashton, Knt., of Ashton, Charlton, East Lydford, Knole (in Long Sutton), and Pitney Lorty, Somerset, Lord High Treasurer, 1375-7, Chancellor and Justiciar of Ireland, Admiral of the West, Governor of Dover Castle and Warden of the Cinque Ports.

    Best always, Douglas Richardson, Salt Lake City, Utah
