  • ID: I04891
  • Name: Katherine HOLT , Heiress of Spernall 1 2 3 4
  • Sex: F
  • ALIA: Katherine /Holte/
  • Birth: ABT 1368 in Greethurst Manor, Yardley, Solihull, Worcestershire, England
  • Death: AFT 1438 in Coughton, Alcester, Warwickshire, England 5
  • Note:
    Note: Yardley was in Worcestshire prior to 1911, when it became a part of Birmingham.

    NOTE: There are no known properties which Katherine received as her inheritance from the Holt family. Aston Manor (probably Duddeston & Nechells as well, since they are said to have followed Aston in descent) were lost to John's son & heir Aymer (and also to Katherine Aymer's half sister), when John's younger brother William was granted the manors by Henry IV. Greethurst manor was placed in-tail male by Walter Holt & Margery, so it could not have been inherited by Katherine.

    ----------------------

    A genealogical and historical account of the Throckmorton family in England and the United States (an excerpt):

    In all pedigrees of the Throckmorton family heretofore published, the wife of Sir Guy de la Spine of Coughton, whose daughter, Alianore, married John Throckmorton of Throckmorton, is given as Katherine, the heiress of Wyke, and it has been assumed that her surname was Wyke, but I have been unable to find that a family of that name ever existed. Among the large number of charters and deeds at Coughton the name does not occur. While I have been unable to identify poitively the family of Katherine, there is no doubt in my mind that she was closely related to the family of Durvassal of Spernore, possibly a daughter of Alianore Durvassal, the heiress of Nicholas Durvassal, lord of Spernore, and her husband Walter Holt, of Yerdly, county Worcester. The two daughters of Sir Guy de la Spine and Katherine were named respectively Alianore (probably after Katherine's grandmother Alianore Durvassal) and Alice after Sir Guy's grandmother Alice de Bruley. In any event Thomas Throckmorton, the grandson of Katherine, on his death, was lord of the manor of Spernore (Inq. p. m.).

    NOTE: Despite some errors (Walter Holt of Yardley's wife was Margery Bagot; his son John Holt's (2nd) wife was Alianore Durvassal), it gives a good indication of Katherine's ancestry. The manor of Spernore/Spernall ties the line together.
