Heiress of St Donats, Combe Hawey, Somerset, and other estates in southern England.
Joan was the daughter and heiress of Thomas de Halweia of St. Donat's, Combe Hawey in Somerset and Compton Hawey in Dorset.
In the 13th century St Donats was held by the de Haweys family who also had estates in Somerset and Dorset. The heiress of John de Hawey married Sir Peter de Stratelynge (Stradling), a Swiss who was in command of the castle at Neath in 1296. He died soon afterwards so it was either his sons or Joan's second husband John de Pembridge who built the castle in the early 14th century.
