CP V ('Ferrers of Groby'), 340-42, says that William's wives are
"Anne, said to have been da. of Sir Hugh le Despenser, of Ryhall,
Rutland, Loughborough, co. Leicester, Parlington, co. York, &c....by
Aline, da. & h. of Sir Philip Basset, of Wycombe, Bucks &c.....He m.,
2ndly, Alianor, da of Sir Matthew de Lovaine, of Little Easton,
Essex" (this Alianor being the subject of a recent posting under
another header) - but does not name any daughter. He is claimed by
Hervey [GLANVILLE] (1882) and CP V ('Grey of Codnor/Ruthin/Wilton'
etc), 173-74, to have or 'be said to' have a da. Anne who m. John de
Grey of Wilton & Ruthin (b. 1268, d.1323).
There is some good reason (obviously onomastic if no other) for
thinking that if there was such a daughter Anne she would have been a
child of the first marriage. But has anyone seen clear evidence of
this Anne de Ferrers and her m. to John de Grey? This - on the Grey
side - is a notoriously perplexed corner of the geneal history of the
period. E.g. CP II ('Basset of Drayton'), 2-3, says that the wife of
Reynold Grey of Ruthin is Anne da of William de Ferrers of Groby,
Thanks for any help.
