    He was closely related to John Cokeworthy of Launceston, Cornwall, who served in Parliament a staggering 19 times, but it is not certain that the two men were father and son.

Generation: 4

  1. 12.  John Chichester was born in 1365 in of Raleigh in Pilton, Devon, England; died before 1399.

    Notes:

    "John I Chichester married in about 1365 Thomasine de Raleigh (d.1402), daughter and heiress of Sir John De Raleigh. He was lord of the manors of Treverbin in Cornwall and of Beggerskewish and Donwer in Somerset. According to Sir Alexander Chichester, Bart., he was the son of Sir Roger Chichester, who was knighted in 1346 at the Siege of Calais and later fought at the Battle of Poitiers in 1356. According to the Heralds' Visitation of Devon his father was John Chichester, 7th in descent from Walleran de Cirencester alias Chichester, himself descended from a brother of Robert of Chichester, Bishop of Exeter in 1155-1160. According to the Ledger Book of Tor Abbey, in 1237 Walleran did homage to William de Raleigh for the manor of South Pool." [Wikipedia]

    In fact, of the three different published heralds' visitations of Devon, only one says anything about the John Chichester who married Thomasine Raleigh -- J. L. Vivian's notoriously squirrely The Visitations of the County of Devon, Comprising the Heralds' Visitations of 1531, 1564, & 1620 (1895). What Wikipedia doesn't mention is that Vivian gives both possible ancestries on the same page, "for comparison", the one in Alexander P. B. Chichester's book (citation details below), which he credits, and also the other, which he attributes to "Harl. MS. 1538, fo. 256, and the College of Arms."

    Alexander P. B. Chichester's is as follows:

    Richard de Cicester, went to the Holy Land with King Richard

    Robert de Cicester, m. Petronilla

    Richard de Cicester, brother of Robert de Cicester, bishop of York; Richard m. Elizabeth

    Roger de Cicester, accompanied Edward I to Gascony

    Roger de Cicester, in the French and Scottish wars with Edward III

    Roger de Cicester, knighted after the siege of Calais

    John Chichester, m. Thomasine Raleigh

    The College of Arms version is as follows, assuming that Vivian transcribed it correctly:

    Waleran to Cirencester alias Chichester, as described by Wikipedia above

    John de Cirencester

    John de Cirencester

    Thomas Chichester, m. Alice de Rotomago

    William Chichester

    John Chichester

    Richard Chichester

    John Chichester

    John Chichester, m. Thomasine Raleigh

    John married Thomasine Raleigh in 1384. Thomasine (daughter of John de Raleigh) died on 7 Aug 1402; was buried in Arlington, Devon, England. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 13.  Thomasine Raleigh (daughter of John de Raleigh); died on 7 Aug 1402; was buried in Arlington, Devon, England.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate death: 2 Aug 1402

    Notes:

    "Thomasine Raleigh (daughter and sole heiress), married firstly Sir John Chichester; secondly Sir William Talbot. Her Inquisition post mortem states that she died on the Monday following the feast of St Peter ad Vincula, 1402. A very worn stone effigy of a lady, said by Pevsner to be from the 14th century, exists in Arlington Church, under a low arch recessed into the north wall of the chancel. Lysons (1822) suggested this represented 'a female of the Raleigh family', and it may therefore represent Thomasine." [Wikipedia]
