  • Notes 
    • Michael de Poynings, 1st Baron Poynings, Knt. (c.1318 - 7 March 1369),[1] of Bures St. Mary, Suffolk, was an English nobleman and soldier. He was present at the Battle of Cr‚ecy.

      Michael de Poynings was summoned to Parliament by writs direct to Michaeli de Ponynges from 20 November 1348 to 24 February 1368.[2] On account of the valiant conduct of his father, Thomas, who died in 1339 in battle at the storming of Hunycourt in Vermandois, France, the King received Michael's homage, though the latter was under age, and granted him livery of his lands and full benefit of his marriage, taking security for the payment of the relief.

      Poynings gave a thousand marks to Queen Philippa of Hainault in 1366 for the wardship and marriage of William, son and heir of John Lord Bardolf, to the end that he might take Agnes, his daughter, to wife, who by the name of "Agnes Bardolf" is mentioned as a legatee in the will of her mother, Joane Lady Poynings, dated 12 May 1369, and by that of "Lady Bardolf my sister" in the will of Thomas Lord Poynings, dated 28 October 1374.

      Marriage and issue

      Poynings married, before 1348, Joan Ruxley (d. 11 May 1369), widow of John de Moleyns, son and heir apparent of John, Baron Moleyns,[2][1] and daughter of Sir Richard Rokesley.[citation needed]

      They were buried together[citation needed] in the parish church at Poynings, Sussex.

      He was succeeded by his son Thomas de Poynings, 2nd Baron Poynings.
