Volume 10, page 663, note h:
His [Robert's (de Poynings), Lord Poynings (d. 1446)] marriage was granted successively to; (i) Sir James Berners, 6 Nov. 1387; (ii) Richard, Earl of Arundel, 3 Sep. 1388; (iii) William (Lescrope), Earl of Wilts, 31 Jan. 1397/8 (Cal. Patent Rolls, 1385-89, pp. 371, 501; 1396-99, p. 289).
Page 664 (as corrected by volume 14):
He m., 1stly, before 22 Oct. 1397, Elizabeth, da. of Reynold (GREY), Lord GREY OF RUTHYN by his 1st wife Margaret, da. of Thomas (ROS), 4th Lord ROS OF HELMSLEY [Devon, Issues of the Exchequer, 1837, p. 265; Sussex Arch. Colls., vol. xv, 1863, p. 16]; and, 2ndly, in or before June 1434, Margaret, elder daughter and in her issue coh. of Thomas SQUERY, of Westerham, Kent, and widow of William CROMER (d. Jan. 1433/4) ...

Douglas Richardson, in August 2002, pointed out evidence that Robert's wife in 1416 was called Eleanor, and was then pregnant [Canterbury and York Society, vol. 46, p. 455 (1945)].

Regarding the date given above for the marriage to Elizabeth Grey, note that Robert's marriage was later (31 January 1398) granted to William Lescrope, earl of Wiltshire.

[This problem was further discussed by Dave Utzinger, Paul Reed, Adrian Channing and Doug Thompson in August 2002.]
