From W.A.Copinger, The Manors of Suffolk, (Fisher-Unwin,1905) v.1., it appears that the Beaumont, or Bellomonte family, had interests in manors in Suffolk - namely a third share of Groton and Semere, Levenya Strattons manor in Assington and possibly Boxfield.
These were held by Godfrey de Bellomonte who died without issue in 1293 and was succeeded by his brother Sir John Bellomonte who died in 1297, leaving a widow Alice. He was succeeded by his son Richard Bellomonte, who held in 1299.
Chronologically it is possible that Joan is daughter of this Richard.
A full pedigree of the descendants of Robert Cokefield (d. temp. Richard I), is shown on p.111 and includes that of Sir John Bellomonte which is reproduced below.
