William de Vaux, son of Sir John de Vaux, Knt. and Juliana (…), died at Bottisham, Cambridgeshire, England, between 1367 and 1373.1

William married Joan (…), whose ancestry is unknown (or not traced here).1

Moriarty says this of William de Vaux:
Contemporaneous with Thomas and his brother Edmund was a William de Vaux, who appears to be identical with the William Vaux who appears in the Bottisham Court Roll of 13 Oct 1366. He was dead by 1372-3 when his son William and his widow Joan purchased land in Bottisham, and in the Cambridge Assize, after Easter 1375, "William son of William Vaus of Bockysham" had a suit regarding land in Bottisham, showing that by this date the son was of age.

Who his father, whom I shall call William Vaux I., was, cannot be determined with certainty, but I think we may say with a fair amount of assurance that he was either a third son of Sir John and a brother of Thomas and Edmund, or else that he was a son of Sir John's brother Elias.Personally, I think the chances greatly favour his being the son of Sir John, whose children were closely identified with Bottisham, whereas Elias disappears from the Bottisham records after 1327.2


Joan (…) d. aft. 1373
