Sir John Baskervile (a temp Henry IV who r. 1399-1413)
Even though Visitation starts with this Sir John and Commoners provides the continuation page, BLG1952 starts with the next generation so there may be some doubt on (some of) the earlier generations.
m1/2. Johanna (probably not Elizabeth) de Brugge
Visitation shows this John's wife (and mother of his children) as a daughter of "Symon abruges". There is some confusion about her identity. Commoners shows only 1 wife for Sir John, Elizabeth (dau/heir of John Brugge of Letton & Stainton), indicating that she was mother of both John & Ralph. Contradicting itself, in the record for 'Hacklute of Eaton', Visitation (Herefordshire, 1569) shows the wife of Sir John and mother of John & Ralph as Elizabeth Einford. Provisionally & somewhat arbitrarily, we show Johanna as mother of Sir John and Elizabeth as mother of Ralph. This may be revised in due course.
