Whilst we presently follow BE1883, there are some uncertainties here. TCP (Beaumont) reports that Joan Stafford, daughter of the Duke of Buckingham and previously 1st wife of the 2nd Viscount Beaumont, was 2nd of the 3 wives of Sir William Knyvett of Buckenham (who was alive in 1491 aged 51). A site visitor (DS, 01.06.04) implies that BE1883 has combined generations here and misidentified & perhaps confused the wives (eg the Alice Grey who was one of Sir William Knyvett's wives was daughter of John Grey of Barwell, shown on 'Grey01' as a half-brother of the Alice we are showing here as having married Sir John). This is to be investigated further in due course. A William Knyvet fought in the Battle of Stoke on 16 June 1487.
