Second wife of Humphrey de Bohun and mother of John de Bohun of Haresfield.

Some sources say that she was the daughter of Roger de Tosny/Toeni (who died in 1264), though Charles Cawley's MedLands database lists her with unknown parents. This would also be strange since this Roger de Tosny married her older half-sister Alice, and so this scenario seems unlikely.
