Dear Will ~
The fine in question states that the manor of Cokeham and the advowson
were settled in 17 Edward II [1323-1324] on Ralph de Camoys and his
wife, Elizabeth, for life, "with remainder to Ralph their son and heirs
of his body, with contingent remainders to John, brother [of Ralph],
Margaret and Isabel, sisters of Ralph, or right heirs of Ralph de
Camoys." [Reference: L.F. Salzman, An Abstract of the Feet of Fines
relating to the County of Sussex (Sussex Record Society, 53) (1916):
In another fine dated 19 Edward II [1325-1326], a settlement is made on
Ralph de Camoys and Elizabeth his wife and John their son. A
contingent remainder is provided for John's brothers, Ralph and Hugh
[Reference: Ibid., 59].
The second fine proves that John de Camoys was the son of Sir Ralph de
Camoys and his 2nd wife, Elizabeth. This evidence also proves that
John was not the son of Sir Ralph de Camoys' 1st wife, Margaret de
Brewes, as stated on the Kemmis website.

by her ?
< The above definitely says "their grandson" not "his grandson"
