Isabel Barre, later Countess of Devon, is recorded as the only daughter of Sir John Barre by his first wife Idoine Hotoft. See Brad Verity post on this forum of 24 July 2005.

Sir John Maclean F.S.A. records a second daughter Joan (or Jane) Barre who married John Asshehurst, constable of St. Briavels. Maclean describes an Indenture dated 1467 under which John Asshehurst provided 100 marks to Sir John Barre to purchase a livelihood for the said John Asshehurst and Jane his wife, the daughter of the said Sir John Barre. See "Remarks on The Manor, Advowson and Demesne Land of English Bicknor, Co. Gloucester," Transactions of the Bristol and Gloucestershire Archaeological Society (vol 1 1876); digital images, Bristol and Gloucestershire Archaeological Society, The Bristol and Gloucestershire Archaeological Society (www.bgas.org.uk) at p. 80.

In addition to his primary residence at Clehonger in Herefordshire, Sir John Barre held land in Newland and St. Briavels. See TNA record from Gloucestershire National Archives ref. D1677/GG/1224 (Copy of "the Rentroll of Sir John Barre, knight, & Dame Johan his wife of the rents & ffarms in Newland & St Briavells taken at Clehonger" (1478).

Anne Asshehurst, daughter of John and Joan / Jane married William Wyrall. See the description of the subsequent litigation and the Wyrall pedigree in Maclean (op. cit).
