CP IV, 323 is ambiguous as it does not state which Hugh Despenser, lord
Despenser, Eleanor was the daughter of.

However Ronny Bodine and Bro. Thos. W Spalding in their Ancestry of
Dorothea Poyntz, pp. 115 and 155, make it clear that they think he was
the Hugh who was b. c. 1223 and died at Evesham on 4 Aug 1265. They
quote CP and DNB.

Not quite evidence, I know.
