About Joan Lyttleton

Thomas de Littleton became 'one of the great law luminaries of his country, and is immortalized by one work alone, his celebrated Treatise on Tenures.[2] He was appointed a judge of the Court of Common Pleas in 1464, and was created a Knight of the Bath in 1475. He inherited the Frankley estates from his mother. He married Joan Burley, a wealthy heiress, who was the widow of Philip Chetwynd V of Ingestre, Staffordshire. They had three sons, William, Richard and Thomas, from whom originated three lines of landed gentry in the West Midlands, all of which acquired baronetcies in the 17th century.

Note: Sir Philip Chetwynd (V) was the first cousin of Sir Thomas Malory of Newbold Revel. And Joan's (probable) aunt, Margaret (Burley), was the mother of Thomas Mallory of Papworth St. Agnes by her second husband, Sir William Mallory of Papworth St. Agnes. This means she was closely related to both of the primary candidates for authorship of the Morte d'Arthur.
