      Research Notes
      Richardson and other sources show her husbands as (1) Patrick de Chaworth and (2) Hugh le Despenser. Lacking source citations, husbands Henry Lovet and William Blount (and his children) were detached from this profile. Also detached was Thomas Despencer-155 (now Despenser-41). Hugh & Isabel did not have a son named Thomas. Noland-165 20:33, 30 April 2015 (EDT)
