About Joan Reynell

Joan was the eldest daughter and eventually sole heir.

From REYNELL (REYNALD), Walter, of Malston, Devon and Badlingham, Cambs.

Walter Reynell, ?s. of John Reynell of Trumpington, Cambs. by Maud, da. of Giles Fulborne of Cambs. m. (1) bef. 1376, Agnes; (2) bef. 1383, Margaret, da. of William Styl or Stigill by Elizabeth, da. and h. of Robert Malston of Malston, 1s. Walter†; (3) bef. 1400, Joan, da. and h. of John Bassingbourne of Badlingham, 3s. 4da.1

" ... by Ascension 1400, Reynell had married again. This third marriage was to a Cambridgeshire heiress, Joan Bassingbourne, who brought him moieties of the manors of Badlingham, Fordham and Wicken. She was also a descendant and heir of Alan le Fraunceys, whose charter from Henry III was inspected and confirmed to her by Henry V. This had originally conveyed rights of free warren in Kirkeby Fleetham and Fencotes, Yorkshire, as well as in the Cambridgeshire holdings, but it is unlikely that these properties were still in the family. By a settlement made soon after their nuptuals the lands in Badlingham, Fordham and Wicken were to descend to the heirs of the bodies of Walter and Joan, but if they had no issue Reynell’s son by a former marriage, another Walter, was to inherit."
