|SOME NOTES ON MEDIEVAL ENGLISH GENEALOGY|
Volume 9, pages 404, 405:
He [John de Multon (d. 1334)] m. Alice,(m) whose parentage is not known.
... It has been suggested that his wife Alice was da. of William de la Zouche; no daughter Alice appears in the settlement by William, which seems to include all his children (Cal. Patent Rolls, 1324-27, p. 254).
Rosie Bevan, in June 2003, suggested that the evidence for this filiation is that John's marriage was granted, 10 January 1327, to a William de la Zouch [from C. M. Fraser, ed., Northern Petitions: Illustrative of Life in Berwick, Cumbria, and Durham in the Fourteenth Century, p. 99 (1981), citing Calendar of Patent Rolls, 1324-27, p. 347]. The William referred to in the text above, whose children apparently do not include an Alice, is William la Zouche of Haryngworth (d. 1351/2) [see Complete Peerage, vol. 12, part 2, p. 940, note i]. But an alternative candidate is William la Zouche of Mortimer (d. 1336/7), whose first wife was Alice de Toeni.
[This question was also discussed by John P. Ravilious.
