Sir Maurice de Berkeley of Uley (d c1348)
m. Margaret
BE1883 ('Berkeley of Botetourt') identified Sir Maurice's wife merely as Margaret but BE1883 ('Berkeley of Berkeley, ...') identified her as dau/heir of Sir Maurice Berkeley of Uley. [If that was so, it is not known how her father fitted into the larger family.] Thanks to a contibutor (AH, 12.02.221) for pointing out that she is identified in 'Plantagenet Ancestry' (Douglas Richardson, 2004, p260) as Margery de Vere, possibly dau of Alfonso de Vere of Aston Sandford & Great Hormead by Joan, dau of Jordan Foliot.
1. Thomas or Maurice de Berkeley of Uley (d c1361)
  m. Catherine de Botetourt (dau of John de Botetourt, 2nd Lord)

  BE1883 identifies Richard's 2nd wife, Elizabeth Jermy, as mother of his children but Elizabeth Reade is shown as their mother in 'Abstracts of Records and Manuscripts respecting the County of Gloucester' (vol 2, 1807, p86) by Thomas Dudley Fosbrooke. Provisionally, we follow the latter which also supports the identification of the children of this and close generations.
