Recently it has been shown by John Ravilious that Joan de Beaumont, da of Richard Beaumont of Witnesham, and wife of Giles de Brewse d.1311, was also wife of Edmund Bacon who died in 1337.
The ancestry of Joan has been something of a puzzle, but today I came across a possible placing for her through information from W.A.Copinger, The Manors of Suffolk, (Fisher-Unwin,1905) v.1. Unfortunately this volume does not cover Witnesham, but it appears that the Beaumont, or Bellomonte family, had interests in other 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.
1.Robert de Cokefield 2.Gunnora de Cokefield=William Drayton 3.Alicia de Drayton=William de Bellomonte 8 John [1206/7] 4.William de Bellomonte of Drayton=Alicia da. and coh. of Fulco d'Oyri 5.Godfrey de Bellomonte d.s.p.=Cecilia de Ferrers s.[sister?] and h of Hugo de Ferrers s. of William E. of Derby 5.John de Bellomonte If Joan was a descendant of Sir John de Bellomonte, it is difficult to tell by the devolution of the above manors, as their history afterwards as given by Copinger is rather patchy. Hopefully the above may help in uncovering further information about the Beaumonts.

I have since come across information that the de Beaumonts also held a manor in Salle, the parish where the Brewes family owned the manor of Stainton. Salle had 4-5 manorial properties in the 1300s.
