A stone Monument for Reginald de Chetwynde
described in Sepulchral Monments, Vol. I Pt. I, p. cvii .
Reginald de Chetwynde, son of Sir John de Chetwynde and his first wife, Joan, was an acolyte when he was presented to the rectory of Chetwynd. He was born sometime before 1292, and was at least twenty-six years of age when he was inducted. Reginald de Chetwynde had been previously named to be the heir when his father was to die, but as a priest he could not hold land, nor could his daughter Joan who was considered illegitimate. Reginald was able to pass his father's land onto Joan by granting his estate back to his father, Sir John, for life, with remainder afterwards to Richard, son of Adam de Peshale and his wife Joan. This also ensured that the estate would be in the hands of Joan rather than in the hands of the church. Reginald returned to Chetwynd at his death and was buried at the church there.

• Background Information. 1133
Sir John de Chetwynd was alive in 1351, but his eldest son, Reginald, was deceased seven years previously. The said Reginald left an only daughter, Joan. This Lady took the great inheritance of the Chetwynds to her husband, Richard, son of Adam de Peshale, and transmitted it to her descendants by him. Lady Joan must have lived to a great age because she was married three times after Sir Richard Peshale's death. There may be a doubt about William Slepe being her husband, but he appears as Joan's husband in 1397/8. She was certainly married to Robert de Heywode in 1404 and Robert Tiptoft in 1409/10.
