  (1) Joan de Mounteney (b 29.09.1321, d 24.02.1395/6)
  Hunter does not mention Joan's 1st marriage but shows that Joan was mother of Sir John Mounteney by Lord Thomas Furnival. However, TCP ('Furnivalle') shows that Lord Thomas dsp (and was succeeded by his brother William), having mentioned Joan's 1st marriage to Sir John Bret. We presume that it was Sir John Bret who was son of Sir John Mouteneny who is identified by both TCB & Hunter as having taken the name Moutneney "jussu matris".
