      "On Midsummer Day 1528 [Nicholas Poyntz] married Joan youngest daughter of Thomas V, Lord Berkeley at her father's house at Yate. This was the alliance which was intended to heal all animosities between the two families to which we have before alluded (ante p. 65), but it failed of having that effect."
