The following is excerpted from a post to SGM, 12 Jan 2004, by Brad Verity:
I was unable to verify 1452 as the date of death for Elizabeth Doreward Mortimer, Robert's mother - there was no writ of diem clausit extremum issued for her in the Fine Rolls. Nor was I able to discover anything further on David Mortimer's parentage.
But I did determine that Elizabeth had died by April 1467, through a document that I was quite surprised to find identified her mother (Robert Mortimer's maternal grandmother)!
From Fine Rolls: "6 April 1467. Order to the escheator in the county of Suffolk to take the fealty of Robert Mortymer, kinsman and heir of George House (to wit, the son of Elizabeth the daughter of Joan the sister of Walter the father of the said George), and cause him to have full seisin of all the lands which the said George held of the king in chief or was seised of in his demesne as of fee or in fee tail on the day of his death, as the king for 1/2 mark paid in the hanaper has respited his homage until Easter next."
