(Sir) John ap Adam and Millicent Bessylls
(Sir) John ap ADAM. Lord of Llanllywel and Beachley. [Familytree].
Born (about 1330-S10)(in 1332-S1)(about 1332-S5)(in 1388-S2) (at Barton St. David, Somersetshire-S1)(in Gloucestershire, England-S2)(in Gorset, Chepstow, Monmouthshire, Wales-S5,S10); son of Thomas ap Adam and Joan Inge. (S1,S5).
John married Millicent Bessylls. (S1,S2,S5).
Note: S9 says he married Joyce Wynston, daughter of Andrew Wynston. (S9). The short pedigree found on page 199 (Bradney, History of Monmouthshire, vol. 1 p. 199) for this individual has mis-identified him with Sir John ap Thomas ap John ap Adam who married Joyce Wynston. (S10). S10 lists the marriage to Joyce Wynston as a second marriage.
That Sir John ap Sir Thomas ap Adam was summoned to parliament 19 Edw. I (1290-1291) (S9,S10); and to military service many times between 1297 and 1307 (S10). which does not match his approximate birth year of about 1330. (S10).
John, living 28 May 1375, who together with Margaret, his wife, sold the manor of Sharncote, Wilts, to Thomas, Lord of Berkeley, in (1414-15) 2 Hen. V. (S11). [Again, this doesn't match. The wife here is not correct].
John died (in 1360-S1,S2)(in 1375-S5)(after 1376-S10) in (Beverston-S5), Gloucestershire, England. (S1,S2).
Millicent Bessylls. [Familytree].
Born (in 1306-S2,S3)(about 1334-S10)(in 1334-S1,S7) in (Gorset-S1)(Gorsete Chepstow-S3,S7), Monmouthshire, Wales; daughter of Matthew Bessylls and Elizabeth. (S1,S10).
Millicent died (in 1388-S7)(in 1428-S2,S3) in Charlton, Gloucestershire, England. (S7).
