Eleanor DE HOLAND
- Born: Est 1405
- Married: Shortly after 14 Sep 1430
In the Parliament 9 Hen. VI. 1431, a charge of bastardy was alleged against Alianor, the wife of James lord Audley, who claimed the inheritance of Edmund earl of Kent, as being his eldest daughter, by Constance, daughter of Edmund duke of York, who was the wife of Thomas Despenser earl of Gloucester. She was declared the offspring of "pretended espousals," and consequently illegitimate, and the claims of the earl of Kent's coheirs were acknowledged. 1
Eleanor married James TUCHET, 5th Baron Audley, son of John TUCHET, 4th Baron Audley and Elizabeth STAFFORD, shortly after 14 Sep 1430. (James TUCHET was born about 1398 in Staffordshire, England and died on 23 Sep 1459 at the Battle of Blore Heath, Staffordshire, England.)
Marriage licence issued 14 Sep 1430. They were granted a Papal Dispensation for being related in the 3rd and 4th degrees of affinity.
