"Joyce Burnell's inheritance from her cousin Hugh la Zouche consisted of the manors of Ashby-de-la-Zouch (Leics.), Swavesey and Fulbourn (Cambs.) and Nutbourne, in Pulborough, and River, in Tillington (Sussex). Joyce died on 1 Jan. 1407; on 27 Jan. Hugh la Zouche's feoffees quitclaimed to Hugh Burnell all the Zouche lands, including the two Sussex manors held for life by Hugh la Zouche's widow Joan (d. 1439), and in 1412 a potential Zouche heir, Robert de la Zouche, quitclaimed the five manors to Burnell.[In 1391 the manors of River (Treve) and Nutbourne, or a rent of 100 marks from the other three manors, had been settled on Joan. She married secondly Sir John Pelham (d. 1429) and died in 1439.]"

Roger la Zouche died in 1238 and his son and heir Alan, (fn. 9) lord in the 1260s, (fn. 10) in 1270. In the 1270s that manor was held under Alan's son and heir Roger (d. 1285) (fn. 11) by his younger brother Alan. (fn. 12) Roger's son Alan, (fn. 13) in possession by 1299, (fn. 14) who died in 1314, settled its reversion on his second cousin William Mortimer, (fn. 15) later lord la Zouche, (fn. 16) a lord at Fulbourn in 1316. (fn. 17) He died in 1337 and his son and heir Alan la Zouche, (fn. 18) who was granted free warren at Fulbourn in 1344, in 1346. (fn. 19) Alan's widow Eleanor, shortly remarried to Sir Nicholas d'Amory, held his Fulbourn manors as part of her jointure until she died in 1360, whereupon Alan's son Hugh bought out Amory's interest. (fn. 20) That Hugh, lord la Zouche (d. s.p. 1399), settled the reversion of his lands on his aunt Joyce's granddaughter Joyce and her husband Hugh Burnell, lord Burnell. Zouche's widow Joan retained a life interest in Fulbourn Zouches, (fn. 21) which her second husband Sir John Pelham enjoyed in 1412.
