There is a discrepancy in birth dates for John VII, 3rd Lord Strange. The family website reports one of its rare exact dates as 9 October 1296, while the Corbet-Le Strange genealogy reports he "was born about 1302." I have followed the family website since this date is exact. John had no children. Jamesina Remfry on the Le strange Website tells us he was married to a woman named Maud, but the last name is not known.

By a charter dated July 8, 1385, John le Strange, lord of Knockin, granted to Richard Earl of Arundel and Surrey, to Aleyne le Strange his mother, and to Ebulo le Strange, clerk, his brother, the manor of Holborn, in the suburb of London, in fee, with remainder to the heirs of Alice. 1 He was summoned to Parliament from August 20, 1283, to July 18, 1397. He was in the garrison of Berwick, and served in the Scotch wars. 2 The inquisition on the death of John le Strange shows that he died on July 28, 1397, 3 and that on his wife, Maud de Mohun, shows that she survived for three years, and died on September 20, 1400. 4 Mention has already been made of two brothers of John, sixth Lord Strange of Knockin, viz. Roger, who had a grant of Edgeware for life, 5 and Eubulo, who was in Holy Orders. 6 The latter was presented to the rectory of Wistanstow, Salop, c. 1373, and held it until August 6, 1385; 7 soon after we find him as rector of Gresford, in the modern county of Denbigh, then in the March of Bromfield, which had passed from the Warennes to the fitz Alans. A papal letter of Boniface IX, dated from Rome on April 28, 1391, conveyed the following dispensation: To Eubulo Strange, rector of Gresford in the diocese of St. Asaph. Dispensation to him, who is of a royal race, has for some years studied civil law, and holds also the free chapel of Hempton, in the Diocese of Lichfield, and a canonry and prebend of Lincoln, value, together with his church, 150 marks; on the petition also of King Richard, who says he is his kinsman, to hold one other benefice without cure, even a major elective dignity with cure in a cathedral, and to exchange it and his said church as often as he please, for two similar or dissimilar incompatible benefices. 8 I am indebted to Professor Tout for pointing out to me the royal descent of Eubulo, which I had been unable to trace. He writes to me the royal blood was very indirect and not very royal, but a certain distant kinship to the royal house came from ... 1 Lond. and Middlesex Arch.

Some sources spell this name Catherine. Dates vary among the sources for personages of this era. Some place the date of Katherine in 1558, rather than 1548.
Most sources report both Katherine and her sister Alice born in 1521.

Sources vary considerably on dates of birth or death on many personages during this era. The Senderling Genealogy, which includes many of the Le Strange family, gives a birth date of 1320 for Matilda, the same year as her husband, which looks suspicious. The Corbet Genealogy, whose family is intermarried with the Le Stranges, gives a date of 1333, in England, Shropshire, Blackmere. This is to olate, howver, to amtch the couple of sources that have a date of birth for her son. The earlier date of 1324 reported by the Le Strange Family Genealogy on Tudor Place is more reasonable and closer to Matilda's husband's birth date. -- http://www.tudorplace.com.ar/STRANGE.htm

Cornwall's grandfather, Sir Edmund Cornwall (d. 1354) of Thonock (Lincolnshire) and Kinlet, was the son of an illegitimate son of Richard, King of the Romans and earl of Cornwall, so he himself could claim descent from King John. His father's eldest brother, Sir Edmund, died without issue, and the bulk of the family estates (with the exception of Thonock which passed to another brother and his descendants) reverted to Sir Brian and then, at his death on 5 May 1391, to John himself. Cornwall thus inherited the manors of Asthall and Idbury in Oxfordshire, Ashton in Herefordshire, Kinlet, a moiety of the vill of Worthen and part of Caus Forest in Shropshire and other properties in the marches. He had already agreed, however, that his mother should keep two-thirds of Ashton for life, over and above her dower portion.

Nicholas succeded to his father's titles and distributed the estate to his brothers. "His [Sir Thomas Le Strange] health begun deteriorating at Christmas time 1540, with kidney stones and made him bedridden for weeks. His doctor who Anne paid for "castyng of my husbonds water & for his counsell", treated him again at Christmas 1543. Anne took some wine to her husband "Whan yow War sykke on the collyke & ston" but a recurrence two years later, in 1545 ended his life suddenly.

The Le Strange Website provides a date of birth, but no place. However, the date differs from other sources. The date of 1165 is before the date most sources give for the marriage of his parents. Also, one would expect it is the first child who would be named John after the father, and other sources have it thus. Thus I have followed the year of birth given by the Senderling Genealogy, about 1172, placing Ralph third in order of birth. The Le Strange Website states that Ralph had no children. The genealogy reporting the name of his wife also has no children. Ages reported indicate that Ralph was about 50 years older than Emma. Emma married again and had one daughter, Cecilia de Burnham.
The Le Strange Website styles Ralph as Ralph le Strange of Little Ercal. Ordinarily when a person is styled in this manner, I have understood that to mean this was the estate where he was born. However, his brothers are styled with more than one estate, so in this case it could mean this was the estate he was settled with as part of his legacy.
