  • Hugh LUTTRELL (Sir Knight)
  • Born: ABT 1364, Chilton, Devonshire, England
  • Died: 24 Mar 1427/8, Shaftsbury, Dorset, England
  • Notes: served in France with Richard II and Henry IV, and held a spectrum of appointments. He was, in succession, Lieut. of Calain, Mayor of Bordeaux ABT 1404, Govenor of Marfluer, and Great Sentinal of Normandy. He was Member of Parliament for Somersetshire in the reign of Richard II, and subsequently for Devonshire. Esquire to the Household of John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster. Keeper of the Forest of Gillingham to King Henry IV ABT 1400. Ambassador to a Treaty With France and Burgundy ABT 1403. On the death of his cousin, John, he inherited East Quantoxhead, and when Old Lady De Mohun died in 1404, hastened to pursue his claim to Dunster. He began by dispatching the tenants and moving into the Castle in time to celebrate Christmas 1405. This stung the Mohuns into action and they followed a scramble for the deeds of title of the Castle, entrusted to the Prior of Christ Church, Canterbury. Sir Hugh took the Prior to court and eventually obtained the documents which prove his right to the Castle. The Mohun coheirs, Edward Plantagenet, Duke of York, the Countess of Salisbury and Lord Strange of Knockin -a formidable trio- still argued the validity of the transaction. Sir Hugh was not easily panicked; he won Parliament onto his side and so arranged arbitration by two peers and all the justices. When this failed, Parliament insisted the claim should be heard in the ordinary courts before an impartial jury. By this time, the Mohun's case was wearing thin and they resorted to arguing legal technicalities. It is nevertheless disappointing to find the the story lacks a climax; the case was adjourned in 1407 after the first hearing and was never recommenced. Henceforth, Sir Hugh's right to Dunster was unchallenged. He worked hard to make his new home habituale; and on his first note was to install windows in the neat hall and his private quarters. In 1420 work began on the gatehouse, a symbol of property of the newowner of the Castle. Steward of the Household of Queen Joan ABT 1410. Constable of Bristol Castle and Keeper of the Forests of Kingwood and Fulwood ABT 1412. He was afterwards ranger of Blackmore forest in Dorsetshire, a privy councilor to Henry V, and on of the commanders under that martial monarch at the reduction of Harfleur in Normandy in 1415, and at the memorable siege of Rouen. He died while on a visit to his daughter Joan, who was a nun at Shaftesbury, Dorset.
