• The name “Stourdon/Sturdon” does not appear to be in the records of the time in the calendar of patent rolls. The name “Stourton” [various spellings] does appear many times.
• Many genealogies say daughter Joan married Thomas de Aylesbury [deceased by 8/26/1349], and had a son John who by proof of age was born 5/6/1334. This does not seem chronologically likely.
Children of Ralph and Joan: [4 sons, 2 daughters.]
i. Eleanor Basset (2955009), born ~1335 in England.
ii. Joan Basset (3802585), born ~1340 in England.
