  TCP (Audley) identifies her firstly as an illegitimate daughter of Thomas, (3rd) Earl of Kent, by Constance of York but then reports that some sources say that her parents were Edmund Holand by Elizabeth Burghersh, widow of Edward, Lord Despenser. TCP (Kent), produced some years after TCP (Audley), identifies her as an illegitimate daughter of Edmund, (4th) Earl of Kent, by Constance of York - which we follow. The following is supported by BHO ('An Essay towards a Topographical History of the County of Norfolk', vol 6, 'Hundred of South Greenhoe: Swaffham').
