m. Joan (Johanna) de Tetlow, heiress of Prestwich (d by 1374, dau/heir of Jordan de Tetlow or Tetlawe by Alice (sister/heir of Thomas de Woolley or Wolverley and of Robert), dau of Richard son of Henry de Pontefract)
MGH (NS2 vol 3 p75) starts with the following Roger. He is shown as son of Richard & Johanna on MGH (NS2, vol 2, p274). We start with Richard & Johanna because that was the first generation covered when we uploaded part of the following within a Temporary page on 09.02.10 using Visitation & VCH. At that time we noted that "We need to investigate Joan further. It appears that her mother Alice also married Adam de Prestwich."
