Thurstan Holland had six sons by his wife Joan — Thurstan, Robert, Richard, John, Ralph, and Lawrence. Thurstan died young. ROBERT (XIII.), who was born at his mothers old home at Harden in Cheshire on the 19th August 1491,1 and baptized at Stockport, succeeded to the property on his father's death in 1508. He married Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Richard Asheton of Middleton, Knight, and died without issue on the 9th September 1513. He was succeeded by his brother RICHARD HOLLAND (XIV.), then under age, having been born at Denton on the 25th March 1493,2 and baptized in the Collegiate Church of Manchester. On 22nd March 1515, being still under age, his wardship and marriage were granted by the King to John Byrom, Esq. He married, first, Anne, daughter of John Fitton of Gawsworth, and had issue Richard, Ralph, and Randle, all of whom died without issue; Edward Holland, who succeeded his father, and Margaret, who died unmarried.

The name of their mother is not known, but from some expressions used in Sir Richard's will it is not improbable that they may have been children by his second wife before marriage, otherwise it is unlikely that he would have requested his wife to bring up the two younger boys, and they were evidently carefully provided for by their father by special deeds of gift, as mentioned in the will.
