Edward Trussell (1478-1499), the heir to an estate of more than £350 a year, was the ward of William, Lord Hastings (1430?-1483). After Hastings' death, Sir John Don purchased the wardship [and] fled to the continent until after Mortimer's fall. In the sixteenth year of the reign of Edward III, he was made "admiral of the king's fleet, from the Thames to Berwick upon Tweed".
Edward Trussell was not quite twenty-one when he died in the spring of 1499, leaving a young widow (who later married Thomas Cardigan) and two children, Elizabeth and John, aged three and one.
According to McFarlane, Edward Trussell?s infant son died in the same year as his father (9, 54-5).
