  • Notes 
    • VCH Lancaster says only that she was "daughter of Sir Thomas de Dutton", without spelling out that this was Thomas de Dutton of Dutton, Cheshire (1314-1381). Annals of Warrington (Chetham Society) adds that her father was Thomas de Dutton of Dutton (emphasis ours), which helps. But a footnote to her mention in VCH Lancaster clarifies matters most of all: "John son of Gilbert de Haydock and Joan his wife occur in 1353; she was the widow of Richard le Boteler, with whom she had a third of the Boteler lands; these she took to her second husband, whose heirs retained them, an act which led to disputes between the families not settled till the 16th century. In 1368 a number of family arrangements were made. William de Wigan, chaplain, regranted to John de Haydock and Joan his wife, daughter of Sir Thomas de Dutton, various lands in Newton, with remainders to the children of John and Joan, and then to Sir Lawrence de Dutton [...]" Sir Lawrence de Dutton was the eldest surviving heir to his father Thomas de Dutton of Dutton, Cheshire (1314-1381) and his wife Ellen Thornton. This seems evidence enough to confirm that Joan's father was in fact this Thomas de Dutton.
