Joan Hordle is mentioned in Doc Savage: His Apocalyptic Life by Philip José Farmer as having been a descendant of the monk-turned soldier, companion of Sir Nigel Loring, John of Hordle. Joan married Rueben Clarke and had two daughters, Monica and Tabitha, from whom may be traced the descent of several figures from popular literature, including Sherlock Holmes and Doc Savage.
