Dear John ~
Thank you for your good post. Much appreciated.
Please get back to us when you've heard from Doug Thompson regarding
the name of the first wife of William de Brewes, 2nd Lord Brewes. I'd
be interested in knowing his documentation for her name.
Besides Lady Clemence de Vescy, my file notes indicate there was yet
another Beaumont relative in England. I find that Lady Clemence's
aunt, Isabel de Beaumont, wife of John de Vescy the elder, referred to
Nicholas (or Colin) de Purle[y] as her 'kinsman" [nepotis] [Reference:
Byerly & Byerly, Records of the Wardrobe and Household, 1286–1289
(1986): 243, 258].
Best always, Douglas Richardson, Salt Lake City, Utah
