Some corrections and additions to the Complete Peerage: Volume 2: Bois (PROPOSED CORRECTIONS)


Volume 2, page 202, note i:
In the quinzaine of Michaelmas, 29 Edw. I, he [Master William du Bois (d. c. 1312/3)] settled many manors in cos. Leicester, Warwick, and Northants, on William la Zouche of Harringworth and Maud his wife, and the heirs of their bodies: the said Maud being the donor's niece, and only da. and h. of his sister Isabel, who was 1st wife of John Lovel of Titchmarsh. (Feet of Fines, case 285, file 25, no. 264).

The evidence suggests that William du Bois also had another sister, who was the wife of Thomas Corbet of Hadley, Shropshire, (d. c. 1300) and the mother of his son and heir Roger Corbet (see Lovel of Titchmarsh, vol. 8, page 217).
