Joan and John's marriageJoan Ashton of Ashton-under-Lyme was the daughter of Sir John Ashton of Ashton-under-Lyme and the wife of Robert Davenport of Bromhall. From what I gather, maybe it was a marriage that resulted from wheelin' an' dealing rather than a romantic affair - Marilyn McConnell - I would like to add some more info: Joan Ashton was born Joan de Ashton about 1373 in Ashton Under Lyne, Lancanshire, England. She died April 1443 in Bramhall, Chester, England. Christened: About. 1375 Ashton Under Lyne, Lancanshire, England. I am listing her ancestors as de Ashton.

About the marriage of the elder Robert Davenport of Bromhall from George Ormerod, The History of the County Palatine and City of Chester, incorporated with a republication of King's Vale Royal and Leycester's Cheshire Antiquities (2nd ed., revised and enlarged by Thomas Helsby, Esq.: George Routledge and Sons, Ludgate Hill, London, 1882), vol. 3, p. 824:

"20 Ric. II. Sir John de ASSHETON, knt., Hugh de Arden, and others, enter into a recog. (March 14, 1396-7), in 120 marks to John de DAVENPORT of BROMHALE, touching an intended marriage between Robert de DAVENPORT, son of the recognizee, and Joan, daughter of the said John de ASSHETON; whereby the said John de DAVENPORT agreed that if Joan should die issueless within 3 years after the nuptials, he should pay her father £40 of the said 120 marks; and should the said Robert die as aforesaid, his father should return only £20. A counter recog. was also enrolled with this in Recog. Ro. 20 and 21 R. II. mm. 5, 2."
