    Notes:

    Richardson's Royal Ancestry (volume 4, page 268) calls her "Katherine." He may be right, but we can't discern his basis for doing so.

    The History of Parliament entry for her father-in-law Richard Clitheroe (d. 1420) says that his only son, Roger, married Joan, Lady Cobham's "stepdaughter, Maud Oldcastle", i.e., the daughter of Lady Cobham's husband John Oldcastle by his earlier wife. The History of Parliament entry for her father John Oldcastle says that his daughter Maud "married Roger, son of Richard Clitheroe I of Ash-next-Sandwich, Kent."

    The 7 Mar 1455 will of Roger Clyderow, esq., abstracted by Arthur Hussey in "Ash next Sandwich Wills", Archaeologia Cantiana 34, 1920, pages 58-59, calls his wife "Matilda." The abstract of her own will, dated 8 Oct 1457, in which she calls herself "Matilda, relict of Roger Clyderow", appears on pages 59-60 of the same article.

    Children:
    1. 7. Eleanor Clitheroe died before 1462.
