  • THIS AREA HERE I THINK IS REALLY MEANT TO BE SEPARATE GENERATIONS AS ALICE BERKELEY WHO MARRIED RALPH DE STOURTON IN 1300 WOULD NOT HAVE ISSUE JOAN STOURTON WHO MARRIED TRISTAM FAUNTLEROY IN 1539. WHICH PUTS IN QUESTION THE CHILDREN LISTED FOR JOAN & TRISTAM.

  • Tristram Fauntleroy
  • Tristram was born about 1470 in Mitchell's Marsh, Dorset, England. Tristram's father was John Fauntleroy and his mother was Joan le Waleys. He had a sister named Agnes. He was the younger of the two children. He died about 1539. He was buried in Michel Marsh Church, Hants, England.
  • General Notes
  • He lived in Michelmarsh Manor House, and was educated at Oxford "Master of Chancery" (Doctor of Law).
  • Tristram's father was John Fauntleroy. His mother was either John's first wife, Joan le Waleys, or 'John's second wife, Elizabeth Wadham'.
  • Henry VII restored the Haudois estate on the Isle of Jersey to Tristram's father John Fauntleroy as heir and next of kin to Geoffrey Le Waleys who was killed in the battle of Barnet in 1471.
  • From Helen Sherman:
  • My cousin sent me a copy of "The Fauntleroy Family" by Robert H. Fauntleroy in which he states, "During the restoration of Michelmarsh Church about 1896, two stone slabs were discovered which came from the tomb of Tristram Fauntleroy,... One of them shows his Fauntelroy coat of arms impaling that of Holt. This clearly proves that Tristram married a Holt, and not Joan Stourton, as has been stated in some accounts of the family." He goes on to say that Joan Holt was the daughter of John Holt, widow of Thomas Villiers. Tristram Fauntleroy & Joan Holt had two sons, Bryan and John.
  • I don't know whether this clearly proves anything, and it would certainly be reasonable for Tristram to marry twice, and even have more offspring. No birth dates from either Bryan or John given either...
  • Incidentally, there is a wonderful picture of Tristram Fauntleroy from a stained glass window at Michelmarsh Church. When I told my brother that it was his 11th g.grandfather, he said, "I thought there was a family resemblance." !!! Oh, my!!
  • Helen
  • His will is dated 25 July 1539.
  • Tristram's first family
  • Tristram and Joan were married. They had two sons named Bryan and John.
