ID: I24833 Isabel de Whitacre
"Meanwhile in 1330 Richard de Wytakere, son of Simon, settled a moiety of the manor of Nether Whitacre on himself and his wife Amabel and their heirs. In 1364 1/3 of 1/2 of the manor was leased to Fulk de Birmyngeham by John Waryn of Burton-Stather, co. Lincs., and Hulma his wife, for her lifetime at an annual rent of L12. Fulk was the father of Thomas de Birmingham, whose wife Isabel is said to have been the daughter of John de Whitacre (heir of Richard son of Simon) and of Amice daughter of Sir Robert Marmion and Isabel [see Footnote 2 below]. Thomas left a daughter Elizabeth, who married Thomas de la Roche, and left two daughters and co-heiresses, Ellen wife of Edmund Ferrers of Chartley, and Elizabeth wife of George Longevile. Sir Edmund Ferrers died in 1435 holding holding half the manor in right of his wife. In 1439, a year before her death, Ellen and her second husband Philip Chetewynd conveyed the moiety to John Ferrers, brother of William, Lord Ferrers, for a settlement on three of her sons. John Ferrers conveyed it in 1443 to trustees, and in 1445, after the death of Sir Philip Chetewynd, it was conveyed to Ellen's son Sir William Ferrers and his wife Elizabeth. Sir William died in 1450, leaving a daughter Anne, aged about 12 years but already married to Walter Devereux. Elizabeth continued to hold the 1/2 manor and conveyed it to feoffees in 1455. She was succeeded after her death in 1471 by her young grandson John Devereux, Lord Ferrers".

Jim, I supplied only that part of the quote that pertains directly to Isabel Whitacre, her "said to have been" parents & her descendants. You may want to check the first 4 paragraphs of the quote as it does pertain to the history of the Marmions & Whitacres re: Nether Whitacre. The SGM thread was 12 posts under subject: "Re: Ancestry of Ellen de la Roche?"
