  BE1883 suggests that Franco was alive in 1st Richard I (ie. 1189) but, if so, he must have been very young at that time. BE1883 also reports that it was his son John who married Sibel Ferrers (daughter of William, 2nd Earl of Derby - as reported on a supplementary page for 'Ferrers1', BE1883 appears to have confused the various Earls of Derby). TCP shows that Sibyl was John's mother.
