Families covered: Burghersh of Burghersh, Bratton of Minehead, Bunting of Rotherham

? de Burghersh
1. John de Burghersh of Burghersh (dsp)
2. Reynold de Burghersh of Burghersh
  A. Robert de Burghersh, 1st Lord (d c09.1306, Constable of Dover Castle, Warden of the Cinque Ports)
  m. Maud de Badlesmere (d before 1345, dau of Gunceline de Badlesmere)
  i. Stephen de Burghersh, 2nd Lord (b c1283, d 1309/10)
  a. Maud de Burghersh (b 09.08.1304)
  m1. Walter Paveley (d 1329)
  m2. Sir Thomas d'Aldon
ii. Henry de Burghersh, Bishop of Lincoln, Lord Chancellor (d 1343)
  BE1883 identifies Henry as son of Stephen rather than brother. We show him (who is not mentioned by TCP) as 2nd son of the 1st Lord because TCP reports that Stephen dspm and that Bartholomew was 3rd son of the 1st Lord. We are not sure where else to put him!
  iii. Bartholomew de Burghersh, 3rd/1st Lord (d 03.08.1355, Warden of the Cinque Ports, Constable of Tower of London)
  BE1883 identifies Bartholomew as son of Stephen rather than brother. TCP, whom we follow, identifies him as 3rd son of the 1st Lord. Whilst BE1883 shows him as the 3rd Lord, successor to his brother, TCP suggests that his brother's title passed through his daughter and that Bartholomew was summoned to Parliament in his own right.
  m. (before 11.06.1320) Elizabeth de Verdon, heiress of Ewyas Lacie (d 1360, dau of Sir Theobald de Verdon of Alton, 2nd Lord)
  a. Henry de Burghersh (dvpsp)
m. Isabel St. John (b 29.06.1333, d 16.10.1393, dau of Hugh de St. John of Basing, 2nd Lord)
  b. Bartholomew de Burghersh, 4th/2nd Lord (b by 1309, d 05.04.1369)
  m1. (before 10.05.1335) Cicely (a 08.1354, dau of Richard of Weyland)
  (1) Elizabeth de Burghersh (d 26.07.1409)
  m. (before 02.08.1354) Sir Edward Despencer, 1st Lord (d 11.11.1375)
  Although this is not mentioned in any of TCP (Burghersh), BE1883 (Burghersh) or TCP (Despenser), TCP (Audley) reports that some sources indicate that, after Edward Despencer's death, she married an Edmund Holand and had a daughter Eleanor who was second wife of James Tuchet, 5th Lord Audley. As Eleanor Holand's parents are identified in TCP (Kent) as Edmund Holand, Earl of Kent, by Constance of York, we do not show her as having married or partnered Edmund of Kent but note that it remains a possibility that she married another Edmund Holand as her second husband.
m2. (before 08.1366) Margaret (widow of _ Pichard, m3. William Burcestre)
  c. Sir John de Burghersh (d 30.06.1349) possibly of this family, of this generation
  TCP (Kerdeston) indicates that there are heraldic & other clues which suggest that Sir John may have been of this family but also infers that the evidence is not conclusive. Accordingly, showing Sir John here is somewhat presumptuous.
  m. (by 1343) Maud de Kerdeston (b by 1324, dvp 20.05.1349, dau of William de Kerdeston, 2nd Lord)
  (1) Sir John de Burghersh, 'Lord Kerdeston' (b 29.09.1343, d 21.09.1391)
