  22. [Edit]

  27. Humphrey de Beauchamp , Knt; b abt 1250 d bef 18 Jul 1316 (Genealogics citing Marlyn Lewis, Ian Fettes)  Cawley's Medlands does not list a son Humphrey for this couple.
  28. Alice Mohun b abt 1222 d bef 1284 (The Complete Peerage: Beauchamp of Somerset V2p48) (Genealogics citing Ian Fettes, W H Turton) Medlands seems to make this Alice the sister of the next Reynold below.
    1. The Complete Peerage: Beauchamp of Somerset V2p48 states that Alice was the "daughter of Reynold de Mohun of Dunster", but does not cite a source.
    2. Medlands records her name "Alice" as the wife of Robert de Beauchamp ("Robert de Beauchamp d 1251", Medlands citing an IPM dated 31H3), but also states that she was Alice de Mohun without citing a source for this surname.  Cawley does not list a son "Humphrey" for this couple.
    3. The Turton citation "The Plantagenet Ancestry" pg 162 merely states that Alice de Mohun, daughter of that Reynold who died in 1257, married that Robert de Beauchamp who died in 1265.  No sources are cited.
  29. Reynold de Mohun, Knt b ~1206 d 20 Jan 1258 (Genealogics citing TCP et al)
