The following was copied from Richard Hodgsons website on rootsweb, db=ancestorsearch:
The family seat of the prominent and wealthy Holte family was at Duddeston Hall. The name Holte is also Saxon and the family probably lived in the area before the Conquest but the earliest record is of Henry in the 13th Century. He must have been a wealthy man as his son Hugh married Maud daughter of Sir Henry de Erdington. Maud is known to have been living in the area in 1327 with her son John and his son Simon. Simon purchased the manor of Nechells.
Simon's grandson John purchased the manor of Duddeston from his maternal grandfather in 1365. Two years later his mother bestowed on John, by charter, 'the fair manor of Aston' and so by 1400 the family owned at least 500 acres of land in Duddeston and Nechells as well as the area of Aston and they lived in a manor house in Duddeston.
