Isabel married first John Peverel, second Robert de Bradeston, and third Robert de Rigge.
Roskell's Members of Parliament confused her with another Isabel and gave all six marriages to one woman. For evidence that there were two Isabel's each with three marriages, not one Isabel with six marriages, see William Salt Soc., 13 (1892): 92, 126, 134 which gives abstracts of suits for Isabel, wife of Robert de Rigge, formerly wife of John Peverel, dated 1375 and 1376. In the period, 1375-6, the first Isabel was the wife of Sir Gerard de Braybrook.
An indenture made 25 Edward III [25 January 1350/1-24 January 1351/2] between Sir William de la Pole and Margaret his wife, and Sir Robert de Bradeston and Isabel his wife, concerned the dower given to Isabel by John Peverell, described as her first husband [ Collectanea Topographica et Genealogica , vol. 7, p. 327 (1841)]. Robert de Rigge and Isabel his wife were parties to a fine in the quindene of St Martin 1357 concerning dower in Castle Ashby granted by her former husband John Peverel [CP 25/1/177/81, no 458] and they were involved in suits concerning her dower rights in Stretton, Staffordshire, as widow of John Peverel between Hillary Term 1372/3 and Trinity Term 1376 [ Staffordshire Historical Collections , vol. 13, pp. 92, 126, 134, 135 (1892); note that in the second and third of the three entries Isabel's former husband is erroneously called Robert Peverel].
Margaret, the wife of Sir William de la Pole, was the sister and coheir of Isabel's first husband, John Peverel, who died 15 November 1349 [ Calendar of Inquisitions Post Mortem , vol. 9, no 180]. The suggestion that Isabel was the daughter of Sir William de la Pole presumably arose from the misinterpretation of a document in which he appeared as the brother-in-law of her first husband.
