William COURTENAY (Archbishop of Canterbury)
Born: 1342, Exeter, Devon, England
Died: 31 Jul 1396, Maidstone, Kent, England
Notes: Bishop of Hereford; Bishop of London; Archbishop of Canterbury. He was born in Exeter about 1342, and studied law at Stapledon Hall, Oxford. He was elected Chancellor of the University, and held Prebends at Exeter, Wells, and York. At the age of twenty-eight he was consecrated Bishop of Hereford, and six years later became Bishop of London. He took part with William of Wykeham in defending the rights of the clergy: on the one hand, against the attacks made upon them by John of Gaunt, and on the other, against the exactions of the Pope. In 1381 he was translated to Canterbury, and exerted himself for the suppression of Lollardism. Wyclif's opinions were formally condemned at a Council held in his presence at Blackfriars in 1382. Courtenay died in 1396 at Maidstone, and is thought by some to have been buried there, but there is more reason to believe that his body was transferred to Canterbury where his eggigial monument can still be seen today.

Margaret COURTENAY
Born: ABT 1499
Died: AFT 2 Jul 1520/ 15 Apr 1526
Notes: Margaret was the daughter of William Courtenay, Earl of Devon, and the Princess Catherine, and that she died at Holcombe, choked by a fishbone, A.D. 1512. Says on her tombe. This was found for her, in the person of Henry, Lord Herbert, eldest son of Charles Somerset, Earl of Worcester; and she was living at Richmond, in attendance on the infant Princess Mary, on the second of Jul, 1520. She died before her husband, who married, secondly, Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Anthony Browne. So we can only conclude that the inscription at Colyton is a mendacious inscription, and was invented to support the tradition about "little chokebone", as the natives call her, and which, like many other traditions about the Courtenays, can have had no foundation in fact.
