     Dionysia de Rotherfield married William Wentworth of Wentworth-Woodhouse, son of William Wentworth of Wentworth-Woodhouse and Beatrice Thakel, in 1288; his 1st wife.3
     Dionysia de Rotherfield
In yesterday's post concerning the immediate ancestry of John de Wentworth of Elmsall (fl. ca. 1300 - 1314), a prior post by Cris Nash was noted in which a pedigree drawn from Burke's was cited [1]. In particular, this pedigree gives the grandparents of John de Wentworth and his elder brother William as "William de Wentworth and Dyonisia da. of Peter de Rotherfield."

If this is factually based, it presents the possibility that the Wentworths descended (via de Rotherfeld) from the Deincourt family of Blankney, Lincolnshire. The following was noted by Richard Holme in his research into the records of the Wapentake of Osgoldcross:

' Thorp Audlin.
Out of the Collections of R. Gascoigne, lib. F. f. 34.

G [vol. 127] 16 To all & c. Sr Peter de Rotherfeld &
Albreda his wife daughter of Oliuer de
Daincort gaue to William de Wintworth, son of William
de Wodhus, Kt, one Toft & c. in exchange for a certaine
Toft in Thorp audelin which they had of the guift of
the foresaid William in the same towne.
Witnesse, Adam de Wanervill, John Biset. ' [2]

If it was correctly taken that the Oliver de Eincourt (or Deincourt) mentioned in the above record was the same Oliver of Blankney (fl. ca. 1196 - 1246) who was the father of Sir John Deincourt (d. bef 14 Oct 1257), it is at least chronologically feasible that such a descent exists. A daughter of this Oliver Deincourt could easily have been a grandmother of the brothers William and John de Wentworth.

Should anyone have any additional insight, or documentation, concerning these early Wentworths and their antecedents, that would be most welcome.
Cheers, John *
