Born: Abt 1354, Thurcaston, Leicestershire, England
The Fauconers or Fawkners for a long period had large possessions in the parish sometimes dignified by the manor of KINGSCLERE or LYMMERS. They were already settled here in 1403, in which year William of Wykeham granted licence to William Fauconer and Margery his wife to have a chapel in their mansion at Kingsclere. In 1404 William obtained a forty-year lease of the [page 261a] chief manor of Kingsclere from John de Melton, and died in1413, being perhaps succeeded by the Richard Fauconer who in 1408 was pardoned for the death of John Belmy or Belamy at Kingsclere.
