    Sir John De la Bere first appears in 1328 attesting a charter of John De Horton and seven years later he is seen to witness a charter of his brother-in-law, Gilbert Turberville of Coyty Castle. A document of 1397 records that Sir John had died eight years earlier possessed of the castle. Its appurtenances were valued at ten marks per annum. His heir was an under-age boy, also named John. He may have been a grandson, possibly a younger son of the late Sir Richard of Crécy of fame whose own heir had inherited Kinnersley Castle through the right of his mother.
    Sir John's eldest son, also John, was in line to inherit his mother's ancestral home of Coyty Castle. This finally happened upon the death of his cousin Sir Lawrence Berkerolles in 1411. He may not have taken up residence however, for there was much controversy over who should inherit, and his cousin Joan (Stackpole) and her husband Richard Vernon were living at the castle in 1412. They were under siege by another cousin and claimant, William Gamage. Joan's claims were initially upheld by the King, but William later won his property through the courts. This  [presumably the younger] John De la Bere died in his centenary year of 1414. Thomas, his son, apparently predeceased him.
    Sir John de la Bere of Weobley Castle, in Gower, who had a moiety of Marcross manor.
    He married Agnes, daughter and coheir of Sir Payne Turberville, of Coity, and had Elizabeth, married to Oliver St. John, and Margaret, married first Roger Dennis, and secondly Sir Elias Basset.
