  • Notes 
    • "Sheriff of Devonshire, and Castellan of Exeter, 1209; Castellan of Oxford and Sheriff of Oxfordshire, 1215 in which year King John committed to him the coinage of tin in Devonshire and Cornwall. In 1219 he inherited from his mother the great Honour of Okehampton amounting to 92 knight's fees." [The Ancestry of Dorothea Poyntz, citation details below.]

      Ancestral Roots places Ford Abbey in Devon. It is now in Dorset, but appears to be quite close to both the Devon and Somerset borders (in fact its mailing address is in Chard, Somerset). Given shifting county borders, AR could well be correct for the time when Sir Robert was buried.
