Who should be added?
Sir John Hawkwood, c. 1320-1394, married, apparently as his second wife,
Visconti (Italian), but it doesn't seem that that marriage led to any
As far as I know, the identity of Hawkwood's first wife is unknown. It is
possible that she was also of continental origin. Antiocha Hawkwood,
daughter of the first marriage, was married to William Coggeshall of Codham
Hall, Essex before 1379. Coggeshall was in Italy in July 1379 when proof of
his age was offered (HOP II-1386-617). The biography of Hawkwood in DNB
suggests prolonged absence from England and thus I think a continental first
marriage is possible and perhaps even likely.
Curiously Matilda Coggeshall, daughter of William and Antiocha, married John
St. George of Hatley St. George (d. bef 1425), Camb. Their descendant Sir
Richard St. George, Clarenceux King of Arms (circa 1550-1635) married
Elizabeth St. John of Lydiard Tregoze, Wilts, descendant of Walter Blount
and Sancha de Ayala. There are probably many instances of combining these
foreign blood lines into British ones.
