  • Notes 
    • "John (de Botetourt), Lord Bortetourt, grandson and h., being s. and h. of Thomas de B., by Joan (living 18 Jan. 1326/7), da. of Roger de Somery, sister (and coh. of the considerable estates) of John [Lord] Somery, which Thomas de B. was s. and h. ap. of the late Lord, and d. v.p., in 1322. He, who was aged 4 in Aug. 1322, and 7 in Dec. 1324, had livery of his lands (1341) 14 Edw. III, having had livery (though then a minor) of his mother's lands 16 July 1338. He distinguished himself in the French wars. He was sum. to Parl. from 25 Feb. (1342) 16 Edw. III to 3 Feb. (1385) 9 Ric. II. [...] He m., [...], before 31 May 1347, Joyce, da. of William Zouche, formerly Mortimer [Lord Zouche of Mortimer]. She was living 4 May 1372. [...] He d. 1385, and was bur. at Halesowen, when any Barony which may be held to have been cr. by writ, became dormant, but the right thereto, according to modern doctrine, would appear to have devolved, as under. Will, as Lord of Weologh, pr. 1386 at Lambeth." [Complete Peerage II:235, as corrected by Volume XIV.]

      Even subsequent to the corrections in Volume XIV, CP is still mistaken in claiming (in passages replaced above by ellipses) that this John Botetourt had as his 1st wife Maud de Grey, daughter of John de Grey, 1st Lord Grey of Rotherfield. Details here.
