    In 1440 John Harpur rebuilt Rushall church on the chapel site next to his Hall.
    Was he also the Sir John Harper (sic) of Russhall who married Margaret, dau and co heir of Sir John Bromley and Joan Hextall (qv)? The dates would fit .
    Margaret, widow of Sir Baldwin Strange, died seized of her portion of the manor of Pontefract or Pomfret in Stepney, Middlesex in 1419, and although the see of London was not vacant, the king granted the wardship of her daughter and heir Elizabeth to John, duke of Bedford, who granted it to Maud, widow of Sir Roger Salvayn. Maud farmed the wardship to John Harpur and Hugh Dorset for rent which she granted in 1422 to John Thoralby and Thomas Holden. In 1431 Elizabeth, aged 14, was the wife of Robert Molyneux. Dorset granted his portion after the death of his wife Joan to Harpur in 1435. Shares of the remaining third of two- thirds passed in 1420 from Margaret, widow of Sir Richard Mitton, to her son William, and from Philip Bokelton to his sister Catherine, wife of John Falk of Hereford. The total value of the manor was given as 60s. and each moiety was 6s. 8d. John and Catherine in 1423 conveyed their moiety of a third of two-thirds in trust for John Harpur, to whom their son Nicholas quitclaimed in 1437. (Footnote 98) William Mitton conveyed his moiety in trust in 1436 and quitclaimed to Harpur in 1437. In 1447, therefore, part of the two-thirds was held by Harpur and the other part by Elizabeth and Robert Molyneux. John Harpur of Rushall and his wife Eleanor settled their share on John's heirs in 1458.Page: Bromley
