Sir Thomas's entry in CP II page 507 may give some explanations.
Sir Thomas de Camoys, nephew, or more probably half-nephew, being son and
heir of Sir John de Camoys, a son of Sir Ralph de Camoys by his second wife
, Elizabeth (see footnote j). He succeeded to the family estates.....etc.
Footnote j : Feet of Fines, Sussex, 11 Edward III, Cal. of Charter Rolls,
vol iii, p.493. Sir John had married Margaret, sister and coheir of Richard
Foliot, but it is very doubtful whether she was the mother of Thomas, as
the whole of the Foliot inheritance seems to have passed to her sister
Margery, who married Sir Hugh Hastings.
The above sounds vague as nothing seems certain. Good thing there is volume
XIV, Page 138 has corrections for the Camoys family. It gives note j line 2
after Richard add "3rd Lord Foliot, she d.s.p." lines 2-4 delete from
'but' to Hastings.
Hope this helps.
