  • Henry was the First Baron Lord Scrope, but among his children theywent through number 9 Lord Scrope, so many died after a short life.It was a dangerous, perilous period, with plagues and wars.

    The meager records of the Millennium File collection reports one sonof Henry Lord Scrope and his wife Joan, named John, who succeededHenry as Lord Scrope of Masham.

    --  Thompson,

    Other sources report a different Yorkshire location for the death ofJoan.  This appears to be the same location as reported by mostsources for her birth.  I have not found a documentation for thislocation.

    Death 21 September 1349 in Clifton Castle, Clifton-Upon-Ure, Yorkshire

    It seems likely the Ghent location is the correct death place of JoanAgnes LeScrope, since some sources report that Henry also died there.The latter report is somewhat vague, since often only the name of thecity/village is given, and one might think that Ghent, Flanders, isintended.

    Jonathan Scrope in South Africa, brother of Scrope/Scroopresearcher-compiler Mike Scroop, gave me the Scrope genealogy in diskfile form.  Jonathan and Mike are my first cousins many, many timesremoved.  This genealogy provides what could be found at the time ofMike's research.

    Years of birth and death are uncertain, with much variation insources.  Etienne in the first source, the only child reported there,matches the birth year of William in the second list.  John Scrope,the only child in the Millennium record above, does not appear by thatname in the other lists.
