  Bank's 'Baronies in Fee' (vol 1 (1844), p435) shows Henry of Sussex in this generation and later (vol 2 (1853, p146+) shows him as father of Henry (dsp), Thomas (m. Joane Poynings) & Isabel who are all referred to below. As mentioned below, TCP disputes that.

  m. John le Strange of Knokyn (d before 26.03.1269)



TCP agrees that the following Tregoz family was most likely connected with the above one but states that the separation had arisen by the 1st half of the 12th century. BE1883 shows Henry, 1st Lord of Goring (below) as younger son of Robert of Ewyas (above) whilst Elwes & Robinson show his father as younger son of that Robert. We follow TCP.

  i. Henry de Tregoz of Goring (d before 1293) probably father of ...
  Elwes & Robinson show this as the Henry who m. Margaret Goring and, whilst showing his son Henry, 1st Lord, as dsp and brother (rather than father) of Thomas, 2nd Lord, reports that this "must be wrong". We follow TCP.
  a. Henry de Tregoz, 1st Lord (d after 02.06.1313)
  m. Margaret (dau of John Goring) identified by BE1883, not by TCP

  (i) Joane D'Oyley ('sister/heir of Sir Henry of Stoke Doyle')
  m1. Sir Thomas (sb Roger?) Lewknor (d 1375)
  There is possible confusion here. Joane's first husband is shown by Elwes & Robinson as Sir Thomas Lewknor, which is supported by some of the sources used for the Lewknor page, with her second husband John de Cobham. However, Baker (the main source used for the Lewknor page) names the first husband Roger Lewknor and her second husband Sir Robert de Knightley of Knightley (## see here ##). Baker identifies Joan as dau of Sir John and sister/heir of Sir Henry (Doilly or D'Oyley) of Stoke Doyle.
  m2. (1376) John de Cobham of Hever (d 12.11.1399)
  b. Isabel (d before 11.1342) shown as of this generation by Elwes & Robinson
