  • ID: I04893
  • Name: Eleanor (Alianore) DURVASSAL , Heir of Spernall 1
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: ABT 1350 in Spernal, Studley, Warwickshire, England
  • Death: BEF 1401 in Greethurst Manor, Yardley, Solihull, Worcestershire, England 1
  • Note:
    In 1378 Rose, the widow of Nicholas and then wife of Richard Mountford, disputed against a William Durvassal the right of her daughters, Eleanor and Elizabeth, to a tenement in Spernall. This Eleanor married John Holt, to whose son Walter the manor later came. This William Durvassal (perhaps illegitimate) seems to be identical with William Spernore, knight of the shire for Worcester in the Parliament of 1397, and obtained a life interest in the manor. In 1401 the manor of Spernall, then held as half a fee, on the death of William Spernore, reverted to Walter Holt, a minor, under the guardianship of his father John Holt. A year later (probably on the death of John Holt) a certain William Philips was given the custody of the manor, then worth 10 marks yearly. Dugdale says that Walter Holt came of age in 1402-3 and had livery of the manor, that he shortly afterwards enfeoffed John Reve, vicar of Coughton, on whose death it passed to his brother Thomas Reve, who in turn 'quitted all his right therein' to William Wybbe, esq., in 1428-9.

    NOTE: There has been some question about whether this was the right John Holt who was husband of Eleanor. See notes for husband John Holt for my reasons in thinking that this is indeed the correct person.
