Here is a list of medieval references for Maud Lovell, the great grand-daughter of Lord Bryan, and grand-daughter of Alice de Bryan. Maud was the only child of Elizabeth (Alice's younger daughter) and her husband Robert Lovell. Maud married twice, firstly to Sir Richard Stafford, by whom she had a daughter Avice (or Amicia). Sir Richard Stafford, who was a son of Humphrey Stafford of Hooke and Southwick, known as Humphrey 'of the silver hand'), died in 1427, after which Maud married John FitzAlan, 14th earl of Arundel (who succeeded his father in 1421, and died 1435). Maud bore a son to her second husband, Humphrey FitzAlan, 15th earl of Arundel, who suceeded his father at his death in 1435, but died three years later still only aged 9. Maud died in 1436, one year before her mother. She personally only owned a small portion of the Bryan estates.

This following list contains references relating to Maud herself, this is followed by a lists relating to her husbands, Richard Stafford and John earl of Arundel. The entries in each list are in date order. Actual quotes are in italics.

[There follows a long account] She was seised [of the manors of Overhall, Great Waldingfield and Acton] in demesne as of fee tail by virtue of a fine levied at Westminster on the octave of Hilary 1383 [CP 25/1/289/53 no 78] between
Guy de Bryene junior knight and Alice his wife, querents, and Guy de Bryene senior knight, William de Bryene knight and John de Rokwode, deforciants. Guy de Bryene senior, William and John granted them for them and the heirs of Guy that the manors of 'Moreves' and Overhall then held by Richard Waldegraue knight and Joan his wife for the life of Joan from the inheritance of Guy de Bryene senior, with reversion to Guy senior, William and John and the heirs of Guy and the manor of Acton then held by John de Sutton knight and Alice his wife for the life of Alice, also from the inheritance of Guy senior with the same reversion, should instead after the deaths of Joan and Alice wife of John, wholly remain to Guy junior and Alice his wife, and to the heirs of their bodies. By virtue of the fine, therefore, Richard Waldegraue and Joan, and John de Sutton and Alice his wife, attorned to Guy junior and Alice his wife.
Guy junior, Alice his wife, Joan and Alice wife of John afterwards died, and the manors remained to Elizabeth as daughter and heir of Guy junior and Alice his wife, according to the form of the fine. Elizabeth entered the manors and was seised in demesne in fee tail. She died so seised.
Richard de Sutton knight, Roger de Wolferston, John parson of Tendring, Denis parson of Raydon, Ralph Chamberleyn and John de Reydon were seaised in demesne as of fee of the manor of Layham alias Overbury Hall, to which manor belongs the advowson of the free chapel of Loyham. By charter they demised the manor and advowson to
Alice who was the wife of Guy son of Guy de Bryene knight, daughter and heir of Robert de Bures knight and to the heirs of her body. She was thus seised in demesne as of fee tail and died seised of this estate. The manor descended to Elizabeth as her daughter and heir, according to the form of the demise. Elizabeth entered the manor and was seised in demesne as of fee tail. She died so seised.
