Thanks for that information, which looks like a pretty strong indication
that the Osbaldestons were descendants of Margaret Haudlo.
I didn't have much success identifying the places mentioned in C 1/352/1,
but presumably some are - like Stanley Abbey - in Wiltshire (Ambrisbery =
Amesbury?). If these are Wiltshire properties of the St Amands, this would
make sense. Provided that the younger Gerard Braybrooke (son of Gerard
Braybrooke (d. 1429) and Eleanor de St Amand) had no siblings who left
surviving issue, then according to the account in CP there would be no
closer cousins of Richard Beauchamp, arising from his St Amand ancestry,
than the descendants of Isabel de St Amand, the wife of Richard Haudlo.
Perhaps someone can confirm that the issue of the younger Gerard
Braybrooke's siblings (if he had any) was extinct. This is certainly
suggested by CP xi 303 note g, which says that in 1515 Richard Beauchamp's
heir was found to be Thomas (Brooke), Lord Cobham. It attrubutes this to a
pretended claim that he was a descendant of a brother of the _elder_ Gerard
