Name: Agneta HOLT 1
Birth: ABT 1370
Death: BEF 1418 2
Doug Smith was citing 3 different fairly reliable websites when he named Agneta Holt as William Montfort's wife.
As far as I know there are no firm, original sources that give her name. I am leaving her, but have no ancestry that I can give her. In one of my flawed, previous lines, I had William's wife as the heiress of Whiston (Northants), and indeed the Catesby family did hold Whiston about 4 or 5 generations down the line, and VCH Northants did not give any explanation as to why the Catesby family was holding it. So William's wife (Agneta Holt or whoever she was) may have been the source of Whiston. Whiston was held by several powerful families in succession (Clare Audley, Stafford, Clinton, etc.).
