(d. 1475), the daughter of Thomas Chaucer, the poet's son. She was three times married, finally to William de la Pole, earl, and later duke of Suffolk (d. 1450), whose grandfather had opened the parliament of 1386 in which Geoffrey Chaucer took part. She died at Ewelme in Oxfordshire, where her splendid tomb, with those of her parents, can still be seen in the church.
