  • Notes 
    • Named as escheator of Devon in 1430 and 1440 in many online sources, but it seems clear that this office was in fact his father's.

      According to Joe Cook on SGM, he and his wife are buried in the church at Yarnscombe under an inscription that begins "Hic jacet Johes Cokworthie quondam..."
