“Gen Coll says Renfred Arundell and Alice Lanherne were married before 1268 and he was dead before 14 December 1280. Gen Coll cites a writ of quo warranto 12 Edw. I [1284] where Alice is holding Connerton Manor. She married John Ummfraville before 1291.

“Wardour also places Remfrey Arundell and Alice Lanherne at this point in the pedigree although with less certainty that Gen Coll. Wardour states "the sole evidence that he was Ralph's son is that Odo his brother and executor in 1281 was son of Eve." However Wardour is much more certain that Remfrey married Alice Lanherne who subsequently married John Umfraville. As a result of the Lanherne marriage the Arundells inherited Connerton manor, the Hundred of Penwith, Lanherne manor, land in St Columb Major and, in Devon, the manors of Morchard Arundell and Uton Arundell which they took possession of between 1311 and 1322 when John Umfraville died.

“In Gen Coll, Alice Lanherne is shown as a daughter of John Lanherne and Margery Pincerna. It has this to say about Margery Pincerna and her daughter, Alice:

"’Alice, da. of John de Lanhern by Margerie his wife, da. and heiress of Richard Fitz John. Living 30 Edw. I (1301-2). Styled Alice da la Hurne, Lady of Conorton, in a writ of quo warranto 12 Edw. I (1283-4), by which she claimed assize of bread, etc. in her manor of Connerton. Married to her second husband before 19 Edw. I. (1290-1). The marriage settlement of John de la Hurne with Margerie, da. and heiress of Richard fitz John of Connerton, is among the Wardour Muniments.’ P. 221. “Connerton manor had been granted by Henry [should read Robert] II [of Gloucester] to Richard Pincerna and a copy of the grant appears in the Arundell archive… The grant of Connerton by Henry [should read Robert] II was confirmed by his daughter, Mabel (of Gloucester) Champernoun to John, son of Richard around 1200. [It appears that this “John, son of Richard” was actually Richard’s son-in-law John of Lanherne.]"[1]
