a. Sir John de Cobham, de jure 2nd Lord of Rundale b 1319, d 14.09.1362
It appears that neither John nor any of his successors were called to Parliament. Although TCP identifies them as Lords, BE1883 does not. We compromise and describe them as 'de jure' Lords.

m2 Anne Stafford dau of Humphrey de Stafford, 1st Duke of Buckingham
TCP Mountjoy identifies the following Anne's mother as Elizabeth Chidiok; TCP Burgh of Gainsborough identifies the mother as Anne Stafford. 'MedieGen' reports that the former is wrong ie. it confirms that her mother was Anne Stafford.
