What leads you to think that Sir William de Ferrers, 1st Baron Ferrers
de Groby, had two wives?
According to CP V:344, his wife was Ellen, who is said to have been
daughter of Sir John de Segrave of Chacombe, Northants [Lord Segrave],
by Christine, daughter of Sir Hugh de Plessy, of Hooknorton and
Kidlington, Oxon. Ellen was living, 9 Feb 1316/1317.
CP Volume XIV offers no corrections or additions.
Again, whence cometh this alleged second wife of the 1st Baron Ferrers
de Groby ---- do you have a source?
Cheers and Aloha.
