    Extracts from THURSTASTON IN CHESHIRE BY F. C. BEAZLEY, F.S.A.

    Two inquisitions were made after Elizabeth?s death in 1445.3
    (1) At an inquisition made at Nantwich before John de Legh, escheator, on the Saturday before All Saints, 24 Henry VI [30 Oct., 1445], the jury stated that Elizabeth who was wife of John de Whytmore held in dower of the inheritance of William de Whitmore, cousin and heir of John (viz.: son of William son of the said John), by assignment of the escheator, a messuage and bovate

    of land in Calday (tenant Henry de Veere) another messuage and bovate there (tenant Robert Page), another messuage and half bovate (tenant Robert Coke), half a bovate there (tenant Thomas Curteys), held of William de Stanley as of his manor of Hoton in socage; also a messuage and one bovate of land in Thurstaston (tenant Henry Gyle). another messuage and bovate and a half there (tenant Gregory Smyth), another messuage and bovate there (tenant Henry de Welyngton), another messuage and bovate there (Thomas Jevan lately tenant), a cottage and half a bovate there (same tenant); all held of the king as earl of Chester by knight?s service. She [Elizabeth] died on the Thursday before St. Luke last [14 Oct.] and Joan wife of Robert Fouleshurst is her cousin and next heir, viz, daughter of Richard son of the said Elizabeth, and is aged 26 and more. [Derek?s comment therefore Joan b.c. 1418] All the tenements named should revert to the above-named William de Whitmore, who is over 28 years of age.
    (2) An inquisition made at Chester before Nicholas Danyell, mayor, on 13 Dec., 1445, found that Elizabeth held 2 messuages and gardens in Trynite lane in Chester, a messuage and garden in Watergatestrete, a cottage in Goselane, 6s. 8d. rent from a tenement in Northegatestrete, 13s. 4d. from a messuage (empty) in Gose lane; all of the inheritance of the above William de Whitmore, who is 26 years of age and more. Elizabeth?s heir as above.
    Date of death [Elizabeth?s] given as 21 Oct.

    Derek?s Summary
    Elizabeth was the widow of John de Whitmore c1358-1438. When she died in 1445 her heir was her cousin Joan Foulehurst (wife of Robert Foulehurst). Joan was born circa 1418 the daughter of Richard son of the said Elizabeth. Elizabeth was the third marriage of John de Whitmore and so it was likely that she was beyond child bearing age at that time. There is no Whitmore mentioned in connection with Richard so it seems likely that Richard was son of Elizabeth (da. Sir Piers de Malbank) and Sir Richard Vernon. On the next page it shows that the Vernons and Foulehurst families did marry together before 1424.
