Family notes:

·         Sources give 2 sons John of the same name; in most cases, the 1st died as a minor before the 2nd was born. Since John the father was born late 1314, and was only 26 when the 2nd son John was born, this is likely.

Children of John and Isabel:

i. John Lovel, born ? in England.

[Likely died as an infant.]

ii. John Lovel (7605588), born 1340 in England.
