The Atwick, Yorkshire, estate was later divided between Thomas Sutton's three daughters. Constance Sutton's second husband, Sir John Godard, held "?" of the manor at his death in 1420, and her share passed to the Ughtreds by the marriage of the Godards' daughter Margaret to Thomas Ughtred. That share then descended in the Ughtreds to Sir Robert Ughtred, who in 1527 sold it, as Atwick manor, to Cardinal Wolsey.
According to the Scrope/Grosvenor book, it was Constance?s son John who died in 1420, leaving a son John Godard who dsp in 1430, leaving his 3 aunts his heirs.
Was aged 40 at Scrope/Grosvenor case in 1390.
