About Andrew de Luttrell, 1st Baron of Irnham
Andrew De Luttrell served Henry III on the first journey into Brittany. He laid claims to lands in the county of Somerset, as well as the manor of Irnham, in the county of Lincoln, which formerly belonged to Maurice de Gaunt, and had descended to him by right of inheritance. The next year he had livery of the same, upon paying 100 marks to the crown. He subsequently served in the office of sheriff of Lincolnshire. He married the daughter of Philip de la Mare, a rich and powerful baron. In 1229 Sir Andrew aquired the estate of his grandfather, William PAGANEL/PAYNEL, and claimed PAGANEL/PAYNEL property in Lincolnshire & Somersetshire on the death of his 3rd cousin, Maurice of Gaunt. This second windfall included the manor of East Quantoxhead which became the headquarters of the LUTTRELL's in the south of England.
On the death in 1230 of Maurice de Gant, grandson of Robert de Gant and Alice Paynel, Irnham and East Quantockshead and the remainder of his Paynel inheritance passed to his distant cousin Andrew Luterel, who was descended from Ralph Paynel the Domesday tenant by his second wife Maud, presumed to be a daughter and coheir of Richard de Surdeval. Andrew Luterel had previously inherited the estates held by Ralph Paynel in right of his second wife, which included Hooton Pagnell and other lands in West Ride Yorks. These, which had been held by William Paynel of Hooton, grandson of Ralph by his second wife, passed to Geoffrey Luterel, Andrew's father, by marriage with Frethesant, daughter and eventually sole heir of William Paynel. Irnham, East Quantockshead and Hooton Pagnell thus descended in the Luterel family. [Complete Peerage X:320]
BARONY of LUTEREL
ANDREW LUTTRELL, son and heir, was a minor at his father's death. The wardship of his person and lands held by the Crown was transferred, in 1218, to Philip Mark (g), sometime one of the King's councillors. He had livery in 1229 (h) of his inheritance in cos. York, Northants, and Leicester (i). In February 1239/40 he was a justice in eyre at Nottingham, and in 1242 was summoned for military service in Gascony. He was appointed Sheriff of co. Lincoln in 1251. He had a grant of free warren on his estates at Gamston and Bridgeford in Notts, and a confirmation of a weekly market and a yearly fair at Irnham (d).
He married Pernel, probably daughter of Philip MARK. He died in1265. His widow was living in 1267. [Complete Peerage VIII:284-5, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]
(g) By arrangement with Ralph de Rodes, the overlord of his lands in Notts. There was a stipulation that Andrew was to marry a daughter of Philip Mark.
(h) When he attained his majority.
(i) By the deaths of his mother's niece, the only child of his aunt Isabel by William Bastard, and of his own mother Frethesant, he ultimately became heir to the whole barony of his grandfather, William Paynel. On the death in 1230 of his third cousin, Maurice of Gaunt, heir of the elder branch of the Paynell family (William the great-grandfather of Maurice being elder brother of Alexander the great-grandfather of Andrew), Andrew laid claim to the manors of East Quantockshead, Stockland, Huish, Pawlet, and Weare in Somerset, and Irnham in Lincs, as his lawful inheritance. As a result, he obtained in Apr 1231 and order for the delivery of the manor of Irnham; and in 1232 an admission of his right to the manors of Stockland, Quantockshead and Huish, which last, together with East Bagborough, was ceded by Andrew some years later to Maurice of Leigh and Agnes his wife, claimants to a great portion of the Paynell inheritance, Andrew retaining only the overlordship with certain services and reversionary rights. Altogether his barony comprised fifteen knights' fees of his grandfather William Paynell of Hooton, and twelve and a half fees of his cousin Maurice of Gaunt. C.T. Clay draws attention to a fine in 1240 by which Roger de Triberge and Frethesant his wife quitclaimed for themselves and her heirs, to Andrew Luterel, and his heirs, a moiety of the manor of Hoton Paynel, and all the lands and holdings that were of the heritage of William Paynell. Andrew granted them land in the vill to hold to them and the heirs of Frethesant of Andrew and his heirs. He suggests that this Frethesant was Andrew's mother, ie. Frethesant Paynel, then still living and married to a third husband. Henry de Newmarch [her 2nd husband] was dead in 1239.
(d) Irnham was probably his usual residence. Hooton he made over to his son Geoffrey, and East Quantockshead to his second son Alexander, presumably on the occasion of their respective marriages. He granted or confirmed lands and rights at various times to the abbey of Drax, founded by William Paynell (of the elder branch of that family), to the priory of Nostell, to the abbey of Roche, and to the hospital of St. Mark at Billeswick, near Bristol, founded by Maurice of Gaunt.
