; Per Genealogics:
     “Jean I 'le Roux', duke of Brittany, was born in 1217, son of Pierre I, duke of Brittany and Alix de Thouars. On 16 January 1235 he married Blanche de Champagne, daughter of Thibaut IV-I, king of Navarre, and his second wife Agnès de Beaujeu. Jean and Blanche had eight children, of whom a son Jean II and daughter Alice would have progeny.
     “Jean was nominal duke from 1221, the year of his mother's death, although his father, who had been duke of Brittany through his wife, ruled as regent until Jean reached his majority in 1237.
     “Like his father he tried to limit the temporal power of the Breton clergy, and experienced a number of conflicts with the bishop of Nantes. He was excommunicated, whereupon he journeyed to Rome to gain absolution. In 1270 with his wife and eldest son he accompanied Louis IX on the Eighth Crusade, and survived the plague that killed the king. He then returned to his duchy. He issued an edict expelling Jews from the duchy and cancelling all debts to them.
     “He died on 8 October 1286, and was succeeded by Jean II.”.5

; Per Burke's: "John de Dreux, became Earl of Richmond and Duke of Britanny on the death of his mother, 21 October, 1221, and was acknowledged as duke on attaining his twenty-sixth year in 1237. He had livery in the 50th of Henry III, of the honour of Richmond, from Guischard de Charrun, a servant of Peter of Savoy, who had authority for granting the same. Having thus acquired Peter de Savoy's title, the king, by letters patent, dated 6 July 1268, conferred upon him and his heirs under the designation of John, Duke of Britanny, the Earldom of Richmond, with the castle and honour of Richmond, &c., in fee. Soon after this he obtained a grant from the king of the honour and rape of Hastings; and the next year, he attended Prince Edward to the Holy Land. His lordship m. Blanch, dau. of Theobald, King of Navarre, and dying in 1286, was s. by his son, John de Dreux..."1

; Per Med Lands:
     "JEAN de Bretagne, son of PIERRE I Duke of Brittany & his first wife Alix de Thouars Dss of Brittany ([1217/18]-Château de l'Isle, Férel, Morbihan 8 Oct 1286, bur Prières, église abbatiale de Notre Dame). The Chronicon Ruyensis Cœnobii records the birth in 1217 of "Johannes filius Petri Comitis et Aelidis Comitissæ Britanniæ"[376]. The Chronicon Britannicum records the birth in 1218 of "Johannes, filius Petri Ducis Britanniæ"[377]. On his marriage his father-in-law declared Jean as his heir in Navarre, even if he subsequently had a male heir. After his majority, his father resigned the duchy and Jean swore allegiance to Louis IX King of France in Paris 16 Nov 1237 as JEAN I "le Roux" Duke of Brittany, Seigneur de Pontarcy, de Brie-Comte-Robert et de la Fère-en-Tardenois. Seigneur de Muzillac [1250]. He renounced his rights to Navarre for an annuity of 3,000 livres, by agreement 1254. Châtelain de Dinan 1264-1265. Seigneur de Hédé, de Hennedon-le-Viel, de Léon et de la Roche-Derrien 1265. Vicomte de Gourin [1265]. Henry III King of England restored him as Earl of Richmond at Woodstock 15 Jul 1268, but he immediately surrendered the earldom to his son. He accompanied Louis IX King of France on his second Crusade in 1270. Comte de Penthièvre, Seigneur de Lavaux 1272. Comte de Léon 1276. The Chronicon Britannicum records the death "Id Oct" 1286 of “Joannes comes Britanniæ fundator abbatiæ de Precibus” and the succession of “Joannes filius eius”[378].
     "m (contract Château-Thierry, Aisne 16 Jan 1236) Infanta doña BLANCA de Navarra, daughter of TEOBALDO I King of Navarre [THIBAUT IV Comte de Champagne] & his second wife Agnès de Beaujeu (1226-château de Hédé, Ille-et-Vilaine 11/12 Aug 1283, bur Hennebont, Morbihan, Abbaye cistercienne de Notre dame de la Joie). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records that "Agnes comitissa Campanie" left an only daughter but does not name her[379]. The marriage contract between “P. dux Britannie comes Richerimontis…Johanni de Britannia filio nostro” and “Theobaldus…rex Navarre, Campanie et Brie comes palatinus…filiam suam domiscellam Blancham” is dated 16 Jan 1236[380]. She founded the Abbaye de la Joie near Hennebont [1270], where she was later buried. The Chronicon Britannicum records the death "pridie Id Aug" 1273 (presumably error for 1283) of “domina Blancha ducissa Britanniæ” and her burial “apud Henbond”[381]. The necrology of the Abbaye des Clairets records the death "IV Id Sep" of "Blancha comitissa Britannie"[382]."

; Per Wikipedia:
     "Joanna of Flanders (c. 1295 – September 1374) was Duchess of Brittany by her marriage to John of Montfort. Much of her life was taken up in defence of the rights of her husband and, later, son to the dukedom, which was challenged by the House of Blois during the War of the Breton Succession. Known for her fiery personality, Joanna led the Montfortist cause after her husband had been captured, and began the fight-back, showing considerable skill as a military leader.
     "Shortly after taking refuge in England, she was confined to Tickhill Castle by order of King Edward III.
     "Joanna was highly praised by the chronicler Jean Froissart for her courage and energy. Because of her feats of leadership, David Hume described her as "the most extraordinary woman of the age".
Life
     "Joanna was the daughter of Louis I, Count of Nevers and Joan, Countess of Rethel, and the sister of Louis I, Count of Flanders. She married John of Monfort in March 1329. John of Monfort claimed the title of Duke of Brittany, although his claim was contested by Joan of Penthièvre and her husband, Charles of Blois. Joanna and John had two children:[1]
** John IV, Duke of Brittany (1339–1399)
** Joan of Brittany, Baroness of Drayton (1341 – aft. 20 October 1399), born at the onset of the War of the Breton Succession, married before 21 October 1385 to Ralph Basset, 4th Baron Basset de Drayton

War of the Breton Succession
     "When John III, Duke of Brittany died childless in 1341, he left behind a contentious succession dispute. For many years he tried to find means to ensure that the children of his stepmother, Yolande of Dreux would not inherit the Duchy, including trying to have her marriage to his father annulled. At this time he declared his heir to be his niece Joan of Penthièvre. However he reconciled with his half brother, John of Monfort, shortly before his death, and indicated that he was to be the successor. Thus upon the death of Duke John III, there were two rival claimants for Brittany: the House of Montfort, led by John of Montfort and his wife Joanna, and the House of Blois led by Charles of Blois and his wife Joan of Penthièvre.
     "John of Montfort went to Paris to be heard by King Philip VI of France. Philip was an uncle of Charles, and he imprisoned John, despite having given him a promise of safe conduct. Philip and the French courts then declared Joan and Charles to be the true heirs to the Duchy.
     "Joanna then announced her infant son as the leader of the Montfortist faction. She mustered an army and captured Redon. From there she went to Hennebont, to prepare it for a siege. Charles of Blois duly arrived in 1342 and besieged the town. She then sent Amaury de Clisson to ask King Edward III of England for aid. This, Edward was eager to give, since he had been claiming the French crown for himself, and was therefore at odds with Philip. If he could get Brittany as an ally, this would be of great advantage for future campaigns. He prepared ships under the command of Sir Walter Manny to relieve the siege.[2]
Siege of Hennebont
     "In the siege of Hennebont, she took up arms and, dressed in armour, conducted the defence of the town, encouraging the people to fight, and urging the women to "cut their skirts and take their safety in their own hands". When she looked from a tower and saw that the enemy camp was almost unguarded, she led three hundred men on a charge, burned down Charles' supplies and destroyed his tents. After this she became known as "Jeanne la Flamme". When the Blois faction realised what was happening, they cut off her retreat to the town, but she and her knights rode to Brest, drawing a portion of the Blois force with them. Having secured Brest, she gathered together extra supporters and secretly returned to Hennebont, evading the Blois forces and re-entering the town with her reinforcements.[2]
     "Charles of Blois tried to starve the people in Hennebont. During a long meeting the bishop of Leon tried to persuade Joanna to surrender, but from the window she saw Walter Manny's fleet from England sailing up. Hennebont was strengthened with the English forces and held out.[3] Charles was forced to retreat, but tried to isolate Joanna by taking other towns in Brittany. On his return he again failed to capture Hennebont.[2]
Fight back
     "Joanna sailed to England to seek further reinforcements from King Edward, which he provided, but the English fleet was intercepted on its way to Brittany by Charles of Blois' ally, Louis of Spain. In a hard-fought battle, the sailors and knights grappled in hand-to-hand combat as Louis' men attempted to board Joanna's ship. According to Froissart, Joanna fought in person "with the heart of a lion, and in her hand she wielded a sharp glaive, wherewith she fought fiercely".[2] Eventually the English forces beat off Louis's ships and made harbour near Vannes. Her forces then captured Vannes, besieged Rennes and sought to break the siege of Hennebont.
     "From this point Joanna played little direct part in the fighting, as her faction was now being led by English warlords. With neither side able to achieve a decisive victory, by the truce of Malestroit in 1343, her husband John was released and hostilities ceased for a period. He was later imprisoned once again, but escaped and resumed the conflict. When her husband died in 1345 in the midst of the war, she again became the leader of the Montfort party to protect the rights of her son John V against the House of Blois. In 1347, English forces acting on her behalf captured Charles of Blois in battle.
Confinement
     "By this time Joanna and her son were living in England. In England, after being initially welcomed with honor, she was later confined by order of King Edward III and spent the rest of her life in confinement at Tickhill Castle and elsewhere. King Edward III entrusted her to the care of Sir William Frank until 1346, Thomas Haukeston (1346–57), John Delves (d. 1370) and finally to his widow Isabella and Godfrei Foljambe. Arthur de la Borderie attributed her confinement to mental illness, but more recent research finds no evidence she was insane. It is unlikely that "Warmer" (Warnier?) de Giston, assisted by his yeoman, would have risked gravely compromising himself by taking her out of the castle in 1347 and attempting to flee with her if she were mentally ill.[4][5] Edward III probably imprisoned her in order to increase his own power in Brittany.
     "She lived long enough to see the final victory of her son John IV, Duke of Brittany over the House of Blois in 1364, but she never returned to the duchy. The last mention made of the duchess and her guardian is 14 February 1374. It seems she died that year.
Legacy
     "Joanna was later known as a prototype of the martial woman in Brittany, and a possible influence on Joan of Arc.[6] Jean Froissart said she "had the courage of a man and the heart of a lion".[2] David Hume described her as "the most extraordinary woman of the age".[2] Victorian feminists also cited her as a role-model. Harriet Taylor Mill mentions her as one of the "heroic chatelaines" of the Middle Ages in her essay "The Enfranchisement of Women".[7] Amelia Bloomer also cites her as one of the "heroic women" of the era.[8] Pierce Butler said that she is "known to us, through the enthusiastic record of Froissart, as an amazon, but hardly known at all as a woman". He concluded,
     "In those qualities admired by chivalry she was unquestionably an extraordinary woman: courageous and personally valiant, with a head to plan daring exploits and a heart to conduct her through the thick of the danger; impulsive and generous, a free-handed ruler and an admirer of those deeds of chivalrous daring in others which she was so willing to share in herself ... One cannot read her story without enthusiasm, yet one would like to know more of the woman before bestowing unreserved praise on the countess "who was worth a man in a fight" and "who had the heart of a lion".[2]
     "Joanna was later celebrated for her fiery exploits in Breton folklore, in particular in a ballad collected in Barzaz Breiz, which relates her attack on the camp at Hennebont. In Jeanne Coroller-Danio's Breton nationalist book Histoire de Notre Bretagne (1922), Joanna is depicted as a heroine of Breton resistance to French occupation.

; Per Genealogics: "Walter de Aincurt was from the parish of Aincourt in the Norman Vexin and was granted 67 lordships and manors by Duke William for his great zeal at the Battle of Hastings. He may also have held Ancourt in Dieppe. The ruins of their castle were still extant in 1870. His chief domain in England was at Blankney. An epitaph is preserved in Lincoln Cathedral."5

; Per Wikipedia:
     "Walter D'Aincourt (or Walter Deincourt or d'Eyncourt) was a landholder in Derby under King Edward the Confessor in 1065/1066.[1]
     "Later in 1066, he fought for William the Conqueror against Harold Godwinson and was rewarded with a large number of manors in a number of counties but particularly Nottinghamshire after the Norman conquest.
Biography
     "D'Aincourt's mark on history is recorded principally in the Domesday Book which records him as tenant-in-chief of thirteen manors in Derbyshire, one manor in Northamptonshire, four in Yorkshire, nineteen in Lincolnshire and thirty-seven in Nottinghamshire.[3][4] He made his home in Blankney in Lincolnshire.[5]
     "His surname is said to have had its origin in the village of Aincourt in Normandy on the River Seine between Mantes and Magny.[4]
     "In 1088, after the Rebellion of 1088, Walter bore a royal writ of William II of England ordering the men of William de St-Calais, Bishop of Durham, to return the cattle that they had stolen from rebels during the conflict.
     "Walter's first son, William, died young, while in fosterage at the court of King William II "Rufus", and was buried in Lincoln Cathedral, but his other son Ralph lived to become the second Baron Deincourt; his third son was named Walter. Walter (senior) was known to, and described as a blood relative of, Remigius de Fécamp, Bishop of Lincoln who contributed substantially to William I's conquest of England. It has been speculated that D'Aincourt's rewards were due not to his contribution to the conquest but to his kinship of Remigius. However, J.R. Planché believed, on the basis of Walter's son William D'Aincourt being so described on a plaque found in his tomb, that Walter's wife Matilda was of royal descent.[5] On this basis, plus proof that Walter and Matilda made donations on Alan Rufus's behalf, and chronological considerations, Matilda is argued[6] by the historian Richard Sharpe to be a daughter of Count Alan Rufus and of Gunhild of Wessex, and thus a granddaughter of Harold Godwinson, a view that Katharine Keats-Rohan finds convincing[7] (Sharpe's article also cites a suggestion by Trevor Foulds that Matilda d'Aincourt might have been the Princess Matilda who was a daughter of King William the Conqueror and his wife Queen Matilda.)
Descendants
     "Walter and his wife Matilda had many descendants, such as the later members of the House of Neville, including Warwick the Kingmaker.

     "WALTER [I] de Aincourt (-[1103]). The epitaph of his son William indicates that Walter was "consanguinei Remigii episcopi Lincolniensis" but his precise relationship to Remy Bishop of Lincoln has not been ascertained. Domesday Book records “Walter d'Aincourt” holding land in Morton, Old Brampton, Pilsley, Holmesfield, Elmton and Stony Houghton in Derbyshire; land in Flawborough, Staunton-in-the-Vale, Cotham, East Stoke, Hockerton, Knapthorpe, Bulcote…Granby, in Nottinghamshire; land in Wombwell, West Melton, Toftes and Rawmarsh in Yorkshire West Riding; land in Belton and Great Gonerby Hundreds, in Old Somerby, Humby, Westhorpe, Houghton, Sudwelle, land in the hundreds of Swinstead, Burton-le-Googles, and Branston, in Blankney, and land in Potterhanworth Hundred, all in Lincolnshire[4]. He was related to Remy Bishop of Lincoln, according to the epitaph which records the death of his son "Wi[llelmus] filius Walteri Aiencuriensis consanguinei Remigii episcopi Lincolniensis…"[5]. An undated charter of King Henry II confirms the possessions of York St Mary and lists donations including the donations of “ecclesiam [in Beltona]…decimas suas de Hanawarda et de Blankanaie et de Coreby et de Cotes et de Turgaston et de Greneby et de Hikalinga et de Cnapthorp et de Cartune” made by “Walterus de Daincourt”[6].
     "m MATILDA, daughter of ---. An undated charter of King Henry II confirms the possessions of York St Mary and lists donations including the donations made by "Walterus de Daincourt" and the donation of “unam carucatam terræ quæ fuit Brutinæ in Corby et silvam…decimam de domino de Abbingtuna et de Lins et de Thudesham et decimam Ribaldi de Pikenham de altera Lins, et decimam de Herinthorp, decimam Normanni de Fliccaburh, decimam Gerrardi in Apelby et Gamesthorp et terram…Northuuda juxta Burtunam in Lincolschira” made by “Matildis uxor eius”[7]. Richard Sharp suggests that she was Mathilde, [illegitimate] daughter of Alain "Rufus" de Bretagne Lord of Richmond & his mistress Gunhild ---[8]. This is based on her apparent royal ancestry which is indicated in the epitaph which records the death of [her son] "Wi[llelmus] filius Walteri Aiencuriensis…regia styrpe progenitus"[9]. It should be noted that the epitaph ("Wi[llelmus] filius Walteri Aiencuriensis consanguinei Remigii episcopi Lincolniensis…prefatus Willelmus regia styrpe progenitus") distinguishes between Walter’s relationship with the bishop of Lincoln and William’s being “regia styrpe progenitus”, which indicates that the latter connection must come from his mother’s family. Some of the property which she donated to York St Mary was previously held by Alain "Rufus" (including Little Abington in Cambridgeshire, which he had acquired with the lands of "Eddeva Pulcra")."

; Per Burke's: "Walter de Ayncourt, de Eyncourt, or d'Eyncourt, a noble Norman, one of the distinguished companions in arms of the Conqueror, was cousin to Remigius, bishop of Lincoln, who built the cathedral there, and obtained as his share of the spoil, sixty-seven lordships in several counties, of which many were in Lincolnshire, where Blankney was his chief seat, and the head of his feudal barony. By his wife Matilda, he had two sons, William and Ralph. William, probably the eldest, while receiving his educaiton in the Court of King William Rufus, d. there, as appears by an inscription on a plate of lead, found in the churchyard, near the west door of Lincoln Cathedral, before Dugdale published his baronage, which contains an engraving of the plate, still preserved in the library of that church. From this insctiption it seems he was descended from the royal family, probably through his mother. The inscription runs as follows: "Hic jacet Wilhelmus filius Walteri Aiencuriensis, consanguinei Remigii Episcopi Lincolniensis, qui hanc ecclesiam fecit - Praefatus Wilhelmus, regid stirps pro-enitus, dum in curid Wilhelmi filii magni Regis Wilhelmi qui Angliam conquisivit aleretur III. Kalend. Novemb obiit."1 Walter d'Eyncourt 1st Baron d'Eyncourt was also known as Walter de Eyncourt 1st Baron d'Eyncourt.1 Walter d'Eyncourt 1st Baron d'Eyncourt was also known as Walter de Ayncourt 1st Baron d'Eyncourt.1 Walter d'Eyncourt 1st Baron d'Eyncourt was also known as Walter Deincourt of Blankney.5 Walter d'Eyncourt 1st Baron d'Eyncourt was also known as Walter D'Aincourt.6
