Michelle -
The lines you mention are not directly related to the question of where the name Fauntleroy comes from, if, indeed, it connects the family to royal blood. You mention Jane de Stourton's and Hannah Keene's lineage, but these names are only connected by marriage & occur much later.
Do you have any more information on Walter Fauntleroy and Joan DeThornhill? I was just perusing a book called "Royal Bastards in Late Medieval England" by Chris Given-Wilson & Alice Curteis (Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1984). On page 135 it states, "Edward II (1307-27) did have an illegitimate son, but we know practically nothing about him apart from the fact that he was called Adam, was probably born around 1310, and accompanied his father on the Scottish campaign of 1322."
I was just wondering whether this had anything to do with Adam Fauntleroy? Edward II seems an unlikely candidate to produce any abundance of illegitimate children!! But what do you have about Walter Fauntleroy? Are we certain of his surname? Just lots of questions, you seem to have the most information on the line, so grateful for input on the subject.
