I’m attempting to establish the parentage of Joan de Taleworth (b c 1305) wife firstly of Henry de Bedyk (b c 1295-1335), citizen of London, and secondly to Arnold (III) de Mounteney (b c 1300-1365) of Mountnessing, Essex. Joan had 2 sons with Henry, Sir Thomas de Bedyk (b c 1325) and John de Bedyk (b c 1330) and at least 1 son with Arnold, Arnold (IV) de Mounteney (b c 1345-1402).
Joan may have had a brother, or other close relative, named Roger de Taleworth (b c 1300-1353) who was the Chaplain of the church of St. Michael, Bassishaw, London, of which Joan's first husband Henry was patron, and later in 1351 the Rector of Wootton, Northamptonshire. Joan may likewise have had another brother named Thomas de Taleworth who is referenced in Roger's will.
Any assistance in identifying more information about Joan de Taleworth or her parentage/family would be greatly appreciated.
