I came across this statement while learning Ritva:

והנכון כמו שפירש הרב בעל המאור ז״ל זקנו של רבינו נ״ר

Who is "Rabbeinu" that he refers to? To the best of my knowledge, his teacher the Rashba was not a descendant of the Baal Hamaor.

One of the Ritva's teachers was Rav Aharon Ha-Levi, often known by the acronym רא"ה. He was indeed a direct descendant of the Ba'al Ha-Maor.
