ALEXANDER CHAMPERNOUN. According to the 1422 IPM of his cousin, Otho Champernoun, he was aged 40 or more and the son of Richard, son of Thomas, thus was born in or before 1382.
[He must have been born well before then if he was married to Joan by Nov 1384.]
In 1405, Alexander Champernoun and Joan, his wife, and the heirs of Joan's sisters, sued for the manors of Beer Ferrers, Newton Ferrers and other lands in Devon and Cornwall (De Banco Plea Rolls, Easter Term, 6 Hen IV, m. 308). In Feb 1416/7, Alexander Champernoun, esq., Sir John Cornwall, and Thomas Bonville, esq. presented to Beer Ferrers. In 1418, John Cornwall, Knt., sued Alexander Champernoun, armiger, for the next presentation to the church of Newton Ferrers (De Banco Plea Rolls, Hillary Term, 6 Hen. V, m. 415). Cornwall lost and in Feb 1418/9, Alexander alone presented to Newton Ferrers (Stafford, p. 145, 149). He unsuccessfully disputed the claim of his nephew, Richard, to succeed, despite showing that his father had devised Ashton Rohant to the younger Richard and the heirs of his body (VCH, Oxford, 8: 21). He died 30 June 1441 (IPM, 21 Hen. VI, no. 19) and was buried in the Church of St. Andrew at Beer Ferrers (so stated in the will of his son John).
By Nov 1384 he was married to Joan, daughter of Martin Ferrers and heiress to Beer Ferrers (Cal. Close Rolls, 1381-5: 587-588).
15. Roger Champernoun.
16. John Champernoun, m. Elizabeth Bigbery.
