  • Marriage: Sir Adam de Poynings Knight 141,1262

bullet  Noted events in her life were:

• Background Information. 141
the elder had two other sons, John and William, who according to the deduction made "Ante", were younger sons. John witnessed as John de Puninges a Norfolk charter of the (third) Earl to Lewes Priory, and as John de Punigges, in company with the (third) Earl, another Norfolk charter to the priory. After his death several benefactions were made to his memory. The (third) Earl made a gift to Castle Acre Priory for his soul; and confirmed the gift made to Lewes Priory by William and Adam sons of Beatrice de Puningis for the soul of John their brother, namely 10 marks, from Poynings mill. This latter gift was confirmed by Adam de Ponnynges (the younger), describing it as made by William his brother and Beatrice his mother for the soul of John his brother. Another commemorative gift was made by William de Chesney and Aubreye his wife, which Aubreye is described as sister of Adam son of Adam de Pynyngis in a charter post 1164. This evidence suggests that John died after his father Adam the elder, who must therefore have died during the tenure of the Earldom by the third Earl, and therefore before his departure for the crusade in 1147.
