From Dunham Genealogy, pp. viii-ix:

"II. — The second son of King Edward (John and the two Williams having d. in infancy), was Lionel, who was b. at Antwerp Nov. 29, 1338. He was a man of great strength and beauty of person. He was m. in 1352 to Elizabeth DeBergh, dau. of Lord of Connaught, and third Earl of Ulster and head of one of the greatest of the Anglo-Norman houses in Ireland. Her mother was Maud, dau. of Lancaster, who after the death of her husband, who was murdered in 1332, was m. to Ralph Ufford. On Nov. 13, 1362, Lionel was created Duke of Clarence. This latter title was derived from the town of Clare in Suffolk, the lordship of which with other shares in the divided Gloucester estates had been inherited by Elizabeth from her grandmother, Elizabeth of Clare, the sister of Gilbert, the last Earl of Gloucester, of the house of Clare. Elizabeth d. in 1368 and left a dau. who m. Edmund Mortimer, Earl of Northumberland and Earl of March. He was sent by his father as Viceroy into Ireland and there proved himself inefficient as a ruler. After the death of his wife in 1336 a second marriage was proposed, and Humphrey Bohun, Earl of Hereford, was sent to negotiate a match with Violanti Galeazzo, dau. of the Lord of Paria and with elaborate arrangements the marriage was consummated in 1368. Soon after the ceremonies he was taken ill and died. Personally, Lionel does not appear to have had any lofty aspirations. <This> Thomas de Bergh, brother of Elizabeth, the wife of Lionel, who m. Lucy de Bellaque, dau. of John de Bellaque, was grandfather of Margaret de Bergh, who m. Sir John Zouche. Margaret de Bergh was grandmother of Elizabeth Bowett, wife of Sir John Dunham, who was dau. of Nicholas Bowett who m. Elizabeth Zouche, dau. of John Zouch and Margaret de Bergh."
