Some corrections and additions to the Complete Peerage: Volume 2: Berkeley


See also "proposed" section

Volume 2, page 132:
He [James (de Berkeley), Lord Berkeley (d. 1463)] m., 3rdly, (1423-24) 2 Hen. VI, Isabel, widow of Henry FERRERS, s. and h. ap. of William, Lord FERRERS (of Groby), and 1st da. (whose issue became coh.) of Thomas (DE MOUBRAY), DUKE OF NORFOLK, by Elizabeth, da. of RICHARD (FITZ ALAN), EARL OF ARUNDEL.

Volume 9, page 610, note c, suggests that Isabel may have been younger than her sister Margaret, since John Howard, Margaret's son, was later created Duke of Norfolk.
