Edeline, daughter and coheir of Randolf de Broc, the King's Usher and Marshal, son of Oyne Porcel.
On August 8 , Stephen de Turnham, who had married Edeline, the eldest daughter and coheir, obtained King John's writ to the Sheriff of Southants, ordering the said Sheriff to give seizin to "our faithful Stephen de Thornham and Odeline his wife, of the Manor of Frellebi, which was Dametta's (mother of the said Odeline), who is dead, whose heir she (Odeline) is."

Edeline married Stephen DE TURNHAM of Artington & Berwick, son of Robert DE TURNHAM and Unknown. (Stephen DE TURNHAM of Artington & Berwick was born about 1165 in Great Berwick near Shrewsbury, Shropshire, England and died on 6 Mar 1214 in Artington, Guildford, Surrey, England.)
