    Email sent to the History of Parliament via their web form at http://www.historyofparliamentonline.org/about/contact-us, on 12 September 2014.

    "[Sir Thomas Gresley's] daughters, Joan and Margaret, did equally well for themselves, becoming the wives, respectively, of Sir Thomas Blount (d. 1456), treasurer of Normandy, and Thomas Astley of Patshull, who was related to the Beauchamp earls of Warwick."

    This appears to be backward. According to the History of Parliament's own page about Sir Thomas Blount (at http://www.historyofparliamentonline.org/volume/1386-1421/member/blount-thomas-ii-1383-1456 -- this should be a live link on the entry for Gresley, but isn't), Blount married Margaret, not Joan. This is corroborated by every other source I can find.

    Obviously, changing the sentence to read "Margaret and Joan" rather than "Joan and Margaret" would fix the entire problem.

    Margaret married Thomas Blount. Thomas (son of Walter Blount and Sancha de Ayala) was born Abt 1383; died 1456, Elvaston, Shardlow, Derbyshire, England. [Group Sheet]
