Some corrections and additions to the Complete Peerage: Volume 6: Greystoke (PROPOSED CORRECTIONS)


Volume 6, page 190:
He [Ralph de Greystoke (d. 1323)] m., after 25 Nov. 1317,(f) Alice, sister of Hugh, EARL OF GLOUCESTER, and da. of Hugh (AUDLEY), LORD AUDLEY, by Iseude, widow of Sir Walter DE BALUN, of Much Marcle, co. Hereford, and da. of Sir Edmund DE MORTIMER, of Wigmore, co. Hereford.
Note f:
Request, by the King, for a papal dispensation that Ralph Craystoke, of the diocese of York, and Alice de Audele the King's kinswoman, of the diocese of Coventry and Lichfield, might intermarry, although the said Ralph and Alice are related in the 4th-3rd degrees of consanguinity: Windsor, 25 Nov. 11 [not 12] Edw. II. (Roman Roll, 11-14 Edw. II, m. 14d).

For the identity of Iseude, the wife of Hugh Audley, see Audley (of Stratton Audley), vol. 1, pp. 347, 348.

Volume 6, page 199 (as corrected by volume 14):
SIR ROBERT DE GREYSTOKE, s. and h. ap. [of Ralph, Lord Greystoke (d. 1487)] He m., 1stly, Margaret, da. of Edward (GREY), LORD FERRERS of Groby, by Elizabeth, da. and h. of Sir Henry FERRERS (s. and h. ap. of William LORD FERRERS (of Groby)). She d. s.p. He m., 2ndly, Elizabeth, da. of Edmund (GREY), EARL OF KENT, by Katherine, da. of Henry (PERCY), EARL OF NORTHUMBERLAND. She d. 18 July 1472. He d. v.p. and s.p.m., 17 June 1483.

Douglas Richardson, in August 2003, provided evidence that Sir Robert married 1stly Elizabeth Grey (d. 1472) and 2ndly Margaret Grey - on 19 January 1474/5 the Bishop of Lincoln was mandated to give a dispensation for Robert Greystoke to marry Margaret Grey, of the diocese of Lincoln, who was related to Robert's late wife Elizabeth Grey in the third degree of kindred [citing Calendar of Papal Registers: Letters, vol. 13, part 1, p. 425].
