Does anyone have the correct date of Elizabeth FitzAlan, daughter of Richard FitzAlan, 11th Early of Arundel and its source? I have seen different dates, some c. 1371, 1366, etc. Any help would be most appreciative. Regards, Stephen

You can help yourself by giving up the search for a birthdate of a woman born in the 14th century - these are very rarely recorded (and even more rarely certain when they are).

In this case, you can read the series of inquisitions post mortem (numbers 418-441) here:

https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=wu.89079952164;view=1up;seq=377

There was no need to state her age and they didn't. She was married for the first time by December 1378 (see CP vol 11 p 391 note (a): Cal. Patent Rolls, 1377-81, p. 296; B.M. Harl. Chr., 83 E 37.), hence it is assumed that she was born by 1366 in order to have been aged 12 or more at the time.

You would be very lucky to find conclusive proof of the year of her birth, and relying on luck is not a very efficient method in medieval genealogy.
