John Toke of Beere, Westcliffe, Kent
m. (1328-9) Elizabeth Malmains
1. ?? Toke
  Although BLG1952 and the Visitations show no gap between the John who married Elizabeth Malmains and the John who married Joyce Hoo, it is thought likely that there was at least one and possibly two intermediary generations.
  A. ?? Toke
  i. John Toke of Beere (a temp Henry V who r. 1413-1422)
  Visitation (Kent, 1574) shows John as son of Raulf by Margaret, dau of Richard Portinghton, and his wife as a daughter of Richard Gower of Yorkshire. What we show follows Visitation (Kent, 1619) and BLG1952. Whilst his wife may well have been a Hoo, she would probably have been a generation earlier than a niece of Lord Hoo (who d 1454/5).
  m. Joyce Hoo (dau of Sir Thomas Hoo, brother of Lord Hoo & Hastings)
