  • John de Wrottesley, A.D. 1400 to A.D. 1402.
  • According to the Inquisition on his mother's death, John de Wrottesley came of age on the 29th September 1400. He is shown to be son of Sir Hugh by this Inquisition, by another Inquisition on his own death, by two writs on the Chester Recognizance Roll1 of 3-4 Henry IV, and by a suit on the Chester Plea Roll of 10 Henry IV. He had been married to his wife, Elizabeth Standish, when six years of age, and his eldest son Hugh was born just a fortnight before John attained his majority.

  • Assuming that John de Wrottesley could not have avoided the general summons, the hardships of the campaign appear to have proved fatal to him, for he died on the 7th of September. At this date he was little over twenty-two years of age.1
  • And that the said John died on the Sunday the Vigil of the Nativity of the Blessed Mary last past (7th September 1402), and that Hugh, his son, was his nearest heir, and was two years of age on the Friday the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross in the same year (14th September 1402).2

  • A few days before the date of this grant, viz., on the 20th April, the Prince had issued a mandate to Richard de Manley, the Escheator of co. Chester, to assign dower to Elizabeth, formerly wife of John, son of Hugh de Wrottesley, Kt., out of the lands which the said John had held of the Earl in capite in co. Chester, the said Elizabeth giving security that she would not remarry without the Earl's assent.2
  • Within little more than three months from this date, Elizabeth had married Sir William le Boteler, of Warrington, co. Lancaster, for the Manor Rolls at Wrottesley describe Sir Willlam as lord of Wrottesley, at a Court held on the Wednesday after the Nativity of St. John the Baptist. This

  • would be the 27th June 1403.1 Elizabeth had, therefore, married a second husband as soon as nine months had elapsed after her first husband's death. Sir William le Boteler had succeeded his father John in 1400,2 and at the date of his marriage with Elizabeth, was a widower with an infant son, a few weeks old.3 That a widower should re-marry three months after his wife's death, and a widow do the same nine months after her late husband's death is quite in accordance with the manners and customs of the day.

  • . . . . . sacrifice of nearly half the Enorlish army, which perished from the ravages of dysentery as well as the casualties of the siege. Amongst the victims was Sir William le Boteller, who died before Harfleur whilst in command of the Lancashire levies.1
  • Elizabeth was left a well endowed widow, for in addition to the Wrottesley estates, which she held for life, she would now obtain a considerable dower from the Warrington property. Under such circumstances she would not remain long a widow in the fifteenth century ; and by a writ of the 26th October, 4 Henry V (1416), the Escheator of co. Lancaster was ordered to assign to Sir William de Ferrers, of Groby, who had married Elizabeth, late wife of Sir William Botiller, Kt., reasonable dower for the said Elizabeth out of her late husband's lands, the said William de Ferrers having given a bond for payment of the Fine to be imposed upon her for marrying without the King's license.2
  • Sir William de Ferrers, the Baron of Groby, the third husband of Elizabeth, had succeeded his father, Henry, in 1388, at which date he was fifteen years of age ; he would be, therefore, forty-three when he married Elizabeth. Assuming that the latter was nearly of the same age as her first husband, John de Wrottesley, she would be about thirty-five at the same date. William was lord of Tettenhall Regis and the Wergs, a manor adjoining Wrottesley, and a portion of the Wrottesley property was held of him as overlord.3
