      Maud FitzHugh was the daughter of Sir William FitzHugh of Ravensworth and his wife Margery Willoughby, daughter of the 5th Lord Willoughby de Eresby and Lucy le Strange.

      She married Sir William Bowes of Streatlam (sheriff of NBL), son and heir of Sir William Bowes and Joan Greystoke.[1]

      They had 5 sons and 6 daughters:

      William Esq
      Robert
      Thomas
      Sir Ralph
      Henry
      Margery, wife of Sir William Hilton
      Joan, wife of Sir Ralph Bulmer
      Katherine, wife of Sir Richard Conyers (see query below)
      Margaret, wife of Sir Humphrey Lisle.[2]
      Isabel, wife of John Swinnow
      Anne, wife of Ralph Wycliffe.
      Maud was living when her husband died on 28 July 1466.

      Query. Maud's son Sir Ralph married Margery Conyers, daughter and co-heiress of Sir Richard Conyers of South Cowton and his wife Alice Wycliffe. This Sir Richard reportedly built the church and "Castle" at South Cowton, ca. 1450-1470. He or another Sir Richard is said to have cleared and demolished the village there in 1489-90.

      So did Sir Ralph's sister Katherine become a late 2nd wife of Sir Ralph's father-in-law? (Many similar cases of a man marrying his son-in-law's sister have been noted.) Or did Katherine marry a man from a different branch of the clan?

      Effigies in the church are said to be those of Sir Richard and his two wives, but are described elsewhere as those of Sir Christopher Boynton (of Sedbury) and his two wives.
