A Hitherto Unknown Daughter of Thomas Lord Berkeley (d.1361): the feet of fines and genealogy
by Bridget Wells-Furby
Two fines made in 1358 reveal the existence of Margaret, an otherwise unknown daughter of Thomas lord Berkeley (d.1361). The fines record Margaret’s marriage to the young John de la Pole. The marriage is interesting not only for the fact that Margaret evidently died without issue within a short time of her marriage as John was to marry Joan Cobham in 1362 but also within the context of Margaret’s own family background.
