aka Joyce de Dinan.
Before 1155 a large holding in CHIPPING LAMBOURN, Berks, was granted to Joce de Dinan, formerly castellan of Ludlow Castle. He must have been dead in 1166, when the Crown received the revenues of his lands. Joce had two daughters and co-heirs, Sibyl and Hawise, of whom the former married Hugh Plukenet. Hugh was dead in 1202; his widow lived till 1212.
Ludlow Castle was begun about 1085 by Roger de Lacy, but the round Norman chapel, one of the earliest chapels in the county, was built in the 1130s by a rival claimant, Sir Joyce de Dinan, who temporarily ousted the Lacy's from their home.
Elizabeth Chadwick?s novel ?Shadows and Strongholds? says he married Sibyl, sister of Gilbert de Lacy, but I can see no other reference to this.
