Heir of brother, Thomas, Lord Wake.
Thomas Wake went on to marry Blanche daughter of Henry Plantagenet. Thomas died in 1349 leaving no issue (Blanche lived on until 1357). Upon the death of Thomas Wake his estate passed to his sister, Margaret, widow of Edmund Earl of Kent (beheaded 1330). Margaret only survived Thomas by a few months and on her death in September 1349 the estate and barony passed to her surviving son, John Earl of Kent. On his death in 1352 the estate passed to his sister and ultimate heiress, Joan Plantagenet (Joan The Fair Maid of Kent) who became the Countess of Kent & Lady Wake of Liddell. In 1360 Joan, whose beauty was renowned, married the Black Prince. By this marriage, the manor of Deeping passed to the crown and remained a royal manor until sold in the 19th century.
