Family notes:
·         Henry de Cobeham as a justice is in many records of his lifetime in the Calendar of Patent Rolls.
·         There are also many records of a Henry de Cobeham, the younger, contemporary with this Henry, when he became “the elder” after 1316. Because there are multiple persons named Henry de Cobeham prominent before and after 1316, some of the records are likely intermixed.
·         Henry de Cobham of Rundale [born 1240, died 1316] married Joan, d/o Stephen de Penchester & Margaret de Burgo. This Henry’s heir was Stephen de Cobeham of Rundall named in the 1334-5 Kent subsidy.
Child of Henry and Maud:
i. John de Cobham (30421138), born ~1285 in England.
