Dame Ros = Margaret Arundel wife of Sir William Ros 6th Baron Ros of

Dame Brien = Joan Arundel wife of Sir William Byan of Kemsing, Kent, she
m2 Sir William Echyngham

Margaret and Joan are daughters of Sir John Arundel 1st Baron Arundel
and his wife Eleanor Maltravers Baroness Maltravers de jure. She m2 Sir
Reynold Cobham 2nd Baron Cobham of Sterborough

I must disagree with Leo. I don't think the Margaret Cobham in question
is Margaret Courtenay, wife of Sir John Cobham K.G., 3rd Baron Cobham.
She had died in 1395.

Margaret Cobham is possibly, Margaret Cobham, daughter of Sir Reynold
Cobham and Eleanor Maltravers above who (according to DR in PA3 Cobham:
10) married Reginald Curteys but may still have been single at the time
of the will.

I believe Agnes, widow of Sir William Arundel K.G., is referring to her
sisters-in-law in her will and therefore her identity is still unknown.
