About Thurstan de Holland

Sir Thurstan de HOLLAND (1) was born about 1220 in Upholland, Lancashire, England.(1) He died after 1272 in Upholland, Lancashire, England.(1) He married three times. Thurstan de Holland first married the daughter of Adam de Kellet, through whom the Hollands acquired manors in north Lancashire, as Lonsdale, Furness, and Chartmel. By his first wife he had five sons, Robert, William, Richard, Roger, Adam, and a daughter Margaret. Thurstan next married Juliana, a daughter of John Gellibrand, and had four more sons, Thurstan, Adam, Elias, and Simon. He married thirdly a daughter of Henry de Hale, an illegitimate son of Richard de Meath, Lord of Hale.

An old Norman-French petition from the 'loyal tenants of Hale' states that as Henry de Hale lay dying; came one Thurstan de Holland, who had married the daughter of said Henry and as he lay at the point of death [come il launguist a la mort] his memory lost, the said Thurstan took the said Henry's seal which he had round his neck, and made use of the seal to issue charters granting the said manor of Hale to himself, the said Thurstan, and Robert his son. He put out some old tenants and introduced new ones, which, perhaps accounts for the allegation. This accusation may not have been true, but evidently Thurstan de Holland was one of those vigorous, driven, men who, by local efforts and marriages, founded families. He lived long and is described as Sir Thurstan de Holland in witnessing a charter to Stanlaw Abby in 1272. (Researcher - Jasper Land Holland, II).
