BHO reports that "This family was originally of Lancashire, from whence Otho Fogge came into this county in the beginning of king Edward I.'s reign".
Otho Fogge (a temp Edward I who r. 1272-1307)
1. John Fogge
  A. Sir Francis Fogge of Repton in Ashford, Kent the first mentioned by the Scott book
  m. Joan de Valoynes (dau/coheir of Waretius de Valoynes or Valoigns of Rapentone or Repton by dau/coheir of Robert de Hougham)
  i. Sir Thomas Fogge of Repton (a 1377, Captain of Calais Castle)
  m. Ann, Countess of Joyeaux in (Normandy
  a. Sir Thomas Fogge of Canterbury (d 1407)
  m(2). Joan de Valence (d 1425, dau of Sir Stephen de Valence)
  (1) Sir William Fogge of Repton
  The Scott book shows William as father of John by his 2nd wife, the unnamed dau/heir of Septuans of Ash & Dymchurch, without naming his 1st wife. We have seen various web sites identify his 1st wife as follows and show her as John's mother. Provisionally, we show as follows with more details on the 2nd wife (in italics) coming from various web sites.
m1. _ Wadham (dau of (Sir) William Wadham)
  m2. _ Septuans (dau/heir of William Septuans of Ash & Dymchurch by Elizabeth, dau of Richard Cheney of Shurland)
  (A) Sir John Fogge of Repton, Sheriff of Kent (b by 1417, d 1490)
  The Scott book shows John as father of John by by Alice Hawte. However, there seems to be confusion/contradiction as to which of Sir John's wives was mother of his children. As his first wife was the heiress of Westenhanger/Westernhanger which appears to have passed to his 2nd son Thomas who later sold it to his brother John (although some web sites suggest that it went to Sir John directly), we (provisionally) presume that both of his sons were by that heiress. The Scott book follows only the line of the (younger) son, Thomas.

  (i) Sir John Fogge of Repton
