Subject: Re: Ancestry of Beatrix de Braose/de Brewes (who m Hugh Shirley)

To be slightly more specific
Peter de Braose and his wife Joan de Percy were *divorced*
She later died in 1370.
However when Beatrix was named as the heir of her dead brother John 1426/7
she is stated to then be "aged 60"
Peter and Joan de Percy were divorced much earlier than for which this
could be possible, and so therefore either Beatrix was a flagrant liar as to her
age, or she couldn't be a child of this marriage.
