Dear John,

Thank you. I was not n the list in early January and will go to Archives for
the discussion.

If I am not mistaken, we has adjusted a date for the elder Roger of
Lubbesthorpe's birth to the 1260's? Re; 1286, 28 Ap. Roger la Zouche of
Lubbsesthorpe "going over seas with K. he nominates attorneys. Obviously,
there is some significant part missing in this understanding.


Eudo la Zouche brother to Alan b. c. 1200-07 m. ??

Sir William la Zouche b. ca. 1230 m. kinswoman of Milicent and was a first
cousin to Eudo who m. MIlicent who gave Lubesthorpe to this William.
[Who was the John la Zouche who witnessed Milicent's charter [1289-1296.]?

Roger la Zouche b. c. 1260 m. Juliana [kinswoman of Milicent] by whom
Roger b. c. 1292 or later

bef. 1255 Milicent de Cantilupo m. John de Montaldt
1268 Milicent de Cantilupo de Montaldt grants William la Zouche, Lobesthorp.
"service of third of knight's fee of the gift of Millicent de Montealto
1276 William la Zouche born to Milicent and Eudes la Zouche; becomes lord of
of Haryngsworth through inheritance from his mother.

What families pose a possible connection? de Boscos, Chamberlyns, etc?
