      This John, by reason of his estate in Burgh in Flegg, became a ward to the Countess of Norfolk, of whom it was held by knight's service. In 1390 he and Dionise his mother, purchased lands in Scrouteby. He and his wife are buried in Norwich cathedral, as at vol. iv. p. 35. She remarried to Sir John Rothenhale, Knt. and by will gave to Robert Clere her son, all her goods at Ormesby, and to Edmund Clere her son, all her goods at Castor, and her manor of Horninghall there, and Henstede, Rothenhale, and Cleydon manors in Suffolk.
