Family notes:

·         By 1/8/1327 record, Edmund (15212290, b.~1255, d.1326) & Edmund (121690946, b.~1250, d.1317) are related, and both sons of ‘John’. The relationship is unknown. Neither is their relationship to William (15210574, b.~1300, d.1364), heir of Edmund (15212290) by deed, also a s/o ‘John’.

·         Most pedigrees give the lineage as Isabel, d/o Edmund, s/o John, s/o Baron Edmund. By the lastest possible date of Isabel’s birth, ~1290, the Baron would have lived to be a minimun of 90 [males marrying at 16]. There are pedigrees indicating that Baron Edmund had a son William that died at the battle of Bannockburn (1324). This cannot be because Isabel is the sole heiress by 1314.

Child of Edmund and Isabel:

i. Isabel Deincourt (7606145), born ~1280 in England.

ii. John Diencourt, born ? in England.

By 1314, John died before his father.
