Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1981, Micropaedia, Vol III, p197, Courtenay: "Name of an old English family, Earls of Devon, whose first known ancestor, Athon, was Lord of Courtenay in Gatinais, France, Abt 1010. A branch flourished in England from the mid-12th century, and its claim to the Earldom of Devon, recognized in 1335, stemmed from the marriage of Robert de Courtenay (Died 1242) with Mary de Redvers, daughter of William, Earl of Devon. The main line was extinguished in the Wars of the Roses, but a member of a subsidiary branch, supporting the Tudors, was granted the Earldom in 1485..."
The Political History of England 1216-1377, VolIII, T F Tout, AMS Press, 1905, p314: "... The internal history of the first few years of Edward's reign was uneventful...The country was growing rich and prosperous. The annalists tell us of little save tournaments and mummings, and thesetting up of seven new earldoms to remedy the gaps which death and forfeiture had made in the higher circle of the baronage. The earldom of Devon was revived for the house of Courtenay...William Bohun, a younger son of the Humphrey slain at Borough- bridge, became Earl of Northampton,...and Henry of Grosmont, the Earl of Lancaster's first born, Earl of Derby..."
