  • Notes 
    • "The identity of Beatrice will always remain in doubt, but there is a distinct possibility that she was Beatrice de Meaux, daughter of Sir Godfrey de Meaux and his wife Scholastica de Gayton and sister of Sir John de Meaux. That Geoffrey had a daughter named Beatrice is confirmed by a series of cases in the court of Common Pleas in 1327-28 when Beatrice, daughter of Geoffrey de Meaux sued the executors of the will of Geoffrey de Meaux for her share of the goods and chattels of her father according to the custom of the county of York. The close relationship between the families of Meaux and Langton can be seen in a deed enrolled in Chancery on 27 May 1334 when John de Langton, Nicholas de Langton and William de Garton (who married Ellen, sister of John de Langton), were the witnesses to a release by John de Dufford, knight, to Scholastica, late the wife of Godfrey de Meaux."
