His widow [i.e. Isabel, the widow of Sir Oliver de Dinham (he d. 1298/9)], who survived him for some years, d. 11 Aug. ..., and was bur. in that Church.(a)
Note a:
"Relicta vero ejusdem [Johannis] domina Isabella de Courtney domino Olivero de Dineham postea se maritaverat, sed diu post ipsum tercio idus Augusti defuncta apud Fratres Predicatores Exonie a parte australi presbiterii, ex opposito ejusdem, humata erat." (Chron. of Ford, p. 379).

In fact Isabel did not survive her husband, but was dead by 7 January 1290/1 [abstract of Cornwall Record Office, AR/37/6, on the Access to Archives website].

Volume 4, page 374:
He [Sir John de Dinham (d. 1428)] m., 2ndly, before 26 Nov. 1396,(b) Maud, widow of Piers DE LA MARE, of Offley, Herts (who was aged 13 and more in June 1382,(c) m. her before 16 May 1386, and d. s.p.), and elder da. and coh. of Sir John MAUTRAVERS, of Hook, Dorset, Crowell, Oxon, &c., by Elizabeth, sister and coh. of William DAUMARLE, and yr. da. of Sir William DAUMARLE, of Middle Chinnock, Somerset, and Woodbury, Devon.

A charter of Maud dated 1 August 1396 describes her as "in pure widowhood", so that Piers must have died before that date, and her marriage to John must have taken place after it [Collectanea Topographica et Genealogica, vol. 6, p. 360 (1840)].
