GREY (of Powis)

See also main section

Volume 6, page 136:
SIR JOHN GREY or GREY, yr. s. of Sir Thomas GRAY, of Heton and Wark-on-Tweed, Northumberland (who d. 26 Nov. or 3 Dec. 1400), by Joan, his wife (who was living 30 Nov. 1402). He was b. after 1384.

Dave Utzinger and Douglas Richardson, in October 2001, pointed out evidence that Joan was a daughter of John, Lord Mowbray (d. 1368) [citing the monumental inscription of Joan's son Henry, recorded by Weever and Blomefield, and a late 15th-century visitation pedigree - Surtees Society, vol. 144, pp. 53, 54 (1930)]. Douglas Richardson afterwards (February 2002) posted details of a later visitation pedigree in which the same information appears [citing the Visitation of Yorkshire 1584/5, Harleian Society, vol. 16, pp. 233, 234 (1881)].

[As pointed out by Douglas Richardson in August 1999, the first two pieces of evidence for Joan's identity were discussed by David Faris, Plantagenet Ancestry of Seventeenth-Century Colonists, p. 156 (2nd edn, 1999).

Volume 6, pages 138, 139:
He [Henry Gray, Count of Tancarville] m. Antigone, illegitimate da. of Humphrey, DUKE OF GLOUCESTER. He d. 13 Jan. 1449/50.

According to K. H. Vickers [Humphrey Duke of Gloucester (1907), pp. 335, 336], Antigone survived Henry and remarried, by 1451, to Jean d'Amancier, Esquire of the Horse to Charles VII of France [citing a list of letters of legitimisation printed by Gaston Du Fresne de Beaucourt, Histoire de Charles VII (1881-1891), vol. 5, p. 331].

[Vickers's statement was pointed out by Douglas Richardson in October 2003.
