    • From Complete Peerage:

      Sir Edmund Deincourt, of Blankney and Branston, co. Lincoln, Holmesfield and Elmton, co. Derby, Granby, Notts, Duddington, Northants, &c., s. and h. of Sir John Deincourt, of Blankney, &c. (who d. before 14 Oct. 1257), by Agnes, da. of Sir Geoffrey de Neville, of Raby, co. Durham. The King took his homage, though he was still a minor, on or before 8 Jan. 1268/9. He was in the Army of Wales in 1277, 1282, and 1294, and in the Army of Scotland in 1299. He was sum. for Military Service from 16 Apr. (1291) 19 Edw. I to 1 May (1325) 18 Edw. II, to attend the King wherever he might be, 8 June (1294) 22 Edw. I, to attend the Coronation, 18 Jan. (1307/8) 1 Edw. II, to Councils from 8 Jan. (1308/9) 2 Edw. II to 20 Feb. (1324/5) 18 Edw. II, and to Parl. from 6 Feb. (1298/9) 27 Edw. I to 3 Dec. (1326) 20 Edw. II, by writs directed Edmundo Deyncurt or Deyncourt, whereby he is held to have become Lord Deincourt. He did homage for his lands in Burnby, co. York, to three successive Archbishops of York, 1299, 18 July 1300, and 3 May 1310. As Edmundus de Eyncourt dominus de Thurgerton, he took part in the Barons' Letter to the Pope, 12 Feb. 1300/1. He was one of those ordered, 3 Sep. 1312, to prohibit the Earl of Lancaster and others from repairing to the King with horses and arms. By a fine, levied in the octaves of St. Michael II Edw. II, he conveyed the manor and soke of Blankney, with the advowson of the chapel there, the manors of Branston, Mere, and Granby, a messuage in the bail of Lincoln, the advowsons of the Priory of Thurgarton and the Hospital of St. Leonard at Stoke, and the manors of Holmesfield and Elmton, save a messuage, &c., in Elmton, to himself for life: rem. to William s. of John Deincourt, rem. to John br. of the same William, in successive tail general: rem. to his own right heirs. By another fine, of the same date, he conveyed the said messuage, &c., in Elmton, to himself for life: rem. to Hamon de Mascy and Joan his wife [late the wife of Edmund s. of John Deincourt], for her life: rem. to Isabel da. of Edmund s. of John Deincourt, in tail male: rem. to his own right heirs. He m. Isabel, da. of Sir Reynold de Mohun, of Dunster, Somerset, by his 2nd wife, Isabel, da. of William (de Ferrers), Earl of Derby. He d. 6 Jan. 1326/7.

      *****

      Note that despite CP's assertion that he married "Isabel, da. of Sir Reynold de Mohun, of Dunster, Somerset, by his 2nd wife, Isabel, da. of William (de Ferrers), Earl of Derby," there is no clear evidence that this Isabel was the mother of his children. Moreover, Royal Ancestry doesn't even list an Isabel among the children of Reynold de Mohun and Elizabeth de Ferrers.
