    CP on Sir Richard Lovel d. 1351 says that his "daughter, Eleanor, was wife of Roger Rouhaut (of Aston Rowant) in 1326". VCH Oxfordshire, volume 8 ("Parishes: Aston Rowant") says "Henry [Fitz Alan's] son Roger, known as Sir Roger Rohant, married Eleanor the daughter of Richard Lovel of Wincanton (Som.), and in 1326 entailed Aston manor on his heirs male. He was still alive in 1340 when he again put the manor in trust. In 1360 a Lady Eleanor Rohant, presumably his widow, was administering the estate. Rohant's property passed to his daughter Eleanor and her husband Thomas Champernowne. Eleanor also had died by 1369, when Thomas Champernowne, lord of Modbury (Devon), quitclaimed his rights in certain of Eleanor's estates to Richard Champernowne their son, described elsewhere as great-grandson of Richard Lovel."

He was a knight by 27 May 1379 and served as Sheriff of Devonshire 1368-69, 1381-82, and 1387-88." [The Ancestry of Dorothea Poyntz, citation details below.]

    Richard Champernoun was the direct ancestor of several well-known adventurer-explorers.

    Ancestor of Sir Walter Ralegh:

    Richard Champernoun (d. 1419) = Alice Astley
    Joan Champernoun (d. 1419) = John Courtenay (d. <1406)
    Philip Courtenay (1404-1476) = Elizabeth Hungerford (d. 1476)
    Philip Courtenay (1430-1489) = Elizabeth Wonwell (1432-1482)
    Margaret Courtenay (d. 1527) = John Champernowne (1458-1503)
    Philip Champernowne (d. 1545) = Catherine Carew (d. 1546)
    Katherine Champernowne (d. 1594) = Walter Ralegh (1505-1581)
    Sir Walter Ralegh (1554-1618)

    And of Sir Humphrey Gilbert, a man loathsome even by the standards of imperialist chancers:

    Richard Champernoun (d. 1419) = Alice Astley
    Joan Champernoun (d. 1419) = John Courtenay (d. <1406)
    Philip Courtenay (1404-1476) = Elizabeth Hungerford (d. 1476)
    Philip Courtenay (1430-1489) = Elizabeth Wonwell (1432-1482)
    Margaret Courtenay (d. 1527) = John Champernowne (1458-1503)
    Philip Champernowne (d. 1545) = Catherine Carew (d. 1546)
    Katherine Champernowne (d. 1594) = Otho Gilbert (d. 1547)
    Sir Humphrey Gilbert (1537-1583)

    And ancestor of Francis Champernowne and his father Arthur Champernowne, both of whom were associates of Sir Ferdinando Gorges in his early efforts to settle and develop the coasts of what are now Massachusetts and Maine. Gorges was married to Mary Fulford, sister of Arthur Champernowne's wife Bridget Fulford. Francis settled permanently in Massachusetts in 1637.

    Richard Champernoun (d. 1419) = Alice Astley
    Joan Champernoun (d. 1419) = John Courtenay (d. <1406)
    Philip Courtenay (1404-1476) = Elizabeth Hungerford (d. 1476)
    Philip Courtenay (1430-1489) = Elizabeth Wonwell (1432-1482)
    Margaret Courtenay (d. 1527) = John Champernowne (1458-1503)
    Philip Champernowne (d. 1545) = Catherine Carew (d. 1546)
    Arthur Champernowne (1524-1578) = Mary Norreys (d. 1570)
    Gawen Champernowne (1554-1591) = Roberta d'Orge
    Arthur Champernowne (1580-1650) = Bridget Fulford
    Francis Champernowne (1614-1687)

    It's notable that the Champernoun family was rich, and rich for a long time. In the direct male line, the earliest known individual, Jordan de Cambernon (d. >1172), married a granddaughter of Henry I. His 3XG-grandson Richard de Champernoun married a granddaughter of King John. So why did Arthur Champernowne and his son Francis involve themselves in the risky, high-stakes business of financing fishing colonies in Newfoundland and on the coast of Maine? The answer is, because their line of Champernowns had lost all their money.

    Arthur's maternal grandfather, remarkably, was Gabriel d'Orge, count of Montgomery, who at a joust in 1559 accidentally killed Henri II, king of France. Despite the dying king's forgiveness, so traumatized was the count by this -- and so immediate and complete was his exclusion from French courtly society -- that in due course he converted to Protestantism and became a leader of the Huguenots. He was one of the few Huguenots to escape the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre, from which he fled to England. The queen mother, Catherine de Medici, demanded his extradition, which Elizabeth I refused. In 1573, d'Orge raised a fleet in an unsuccessful attempt to relieve the siege of La Rochelle. The next year, he tried to raise an insurrection in Normandy but was captured and executed. Just before his execution he was told that all his property and that of his children would be confiscated and all their titles stripped.

    (All of which sounds remarkably like a Dumas novel, and in fact a novel about Gabriel, The Two Dianas (1846-47) was published with Dumas' name on it, albeit mostly or entirely written by his friend and collaborator Paul Meurice.)

    The count's daughter Roberta had married the Devon squire Gawen Champernowne, father of Arthur, and Gawen had become a close ally of the count. Now their branch of the family was substantially penniless. It's little wonder that Arthur and Francis looked to the potential riches of the New World, despite the risks involved.
