Family notes:

·         Eudo died in 1326, and Joan claimed the manor as part of her own inheritance. She afterwards married Sir William Moton, who held half a knight's fee in Stoke Mandeville in 1346. Another Sir William Moton, [probably] his grandson, died seised in 1393 of a manor in Stoke Mandeville called Oldbury manor, which may be identified with the moiety of Stoke Mandeville, leaving a son Robert as his heir, a minor at his father's death. Robert Moton obtained seisin of the manor, but it was claimed by William la Zouche of Totteneys, the grandson of Eudo la Zouche and Joan. William based his claim on the original grant by William Inge which was made to Eudo and Joan and the heirs of their bodies, so that her heir by Sir William Moton had no right in the manor. William la Zouche was apparently successful, as he held the manor of Stoke Mandeville in 1409.

Child of Eudes and Joan:

i. William la Zouche (15211180), born by 12/1321 in England.
