About Joan Bodley

Joan Bodley is the daughter of John Hone of Ottery St. Mary and the wife of John Bodley of Exeter according to The visitations of the county of Devon : Comprising the herald's visitations of 1531, 1564, & 1620 (p. 96)

It seems the above is probably incorrect. His father is now thought to be Robert Hone of Ottery St. Mary
