Sir Nicholas de Cheny
Sir Nicholas de Cheney (Chegny) Warden of the Isles
He is mentioned in 1305 as having been warden, probably as a lieutenant to Otto de Grandison. At that time the accounts of his period of office had not been rendered.
Sir Nicholas Cheney, of Up Otterey, died about 1320. He was a Member of Parliament, Sheriff of Somerset, Dorset & Devon.
His son, William, born about 1307 and killed in 1346 at the Battle of Crecy, was Warden of the Isles for a few months in 1331, when King Edward III needed a quick replacement for Pierre Bernard de Pynsole.
