1. Sir RICHARD CHAMPERNOUN, of Modbury, Devonshire. As "Richard de Chambernon, son of Dom Henry de Chamb'noun," he terminated a Plea brought by him in City Court against Master Henry de Bollegh, Archdeacon of Cornwall, 4 Oct 1286 (DCNQ, 8: 132). In 1275/82, as Ricardus de Chambernun, he was recorded as a tenant of the manor of Inswork (Book of Fees, II, p. 1298). Married to Joan, half-sister of James de Okeston, of Modbury. Sir James de Okeston presented to Modbury Priory Sept 1321 (Stapledon, p. 235). It has been suggested that Joan had remarried by 1300, in which year Peter de Fissacre was holding Inceworth, as per the IPM of Edmund, Earl of Cornwall, and that Joan, wife of Peter de Fissacre, put in a claim in 1316, endorsed on the final concord of Modbury (RTDA, 67: 269-270, 280-282). Joan apparently died soon after as in 1319 her son Richard was holding Inceworth.
