Search Amazon.com for the war of the roses

~1440, John born in England, s/o 184640. John Savile & 184641. Alice Gascoigne.

1441, Jane born in Thornhill, England, d/o 184642. Thomas Harrington & 184643. Elizabeth Dacre.

John, Knt., of Thornhill, Elland, etc.

9/23/1459, John Savile, esquire, a Yorkist, fought with the Earl of Salisbury at the battle of Blore Heath in western England. The force then evaded a larger royalist force and joined with the Duke of York.

The Yorkists made an advance on Worcestor. They encountered a superior royalist force and withdrew to Ludford. King Henry sent an offer of pardon to York at Ludford, which did not include pardons for Slaisbury and his associates [including John.]

10/14/1459, A commission was issued for John’s arrest.

1474-75, “Indenture Grant: John Savile of Thornhill knight to John Savile of Northland son of John Savile of Copley 3 acres in Skircoates.” (S) UKNA.

1476, “Indenture: Grant: Sir John Savile to John Savile of Holynghege, 5 acres waste land in Eland, Yorks.” (S) UKNA.

1477, “Indenture: Settlement: Sir John Savile, Manor of Eland, Yorks.” (S) UKNA.

By 1481, John died. (S) A record of commission of 9/23/1481 is address to the father and “grandson”. If this John were alive, he would likely have been named rather than his son. [Note: It is believed he died in the Duke of Gloucester’s campaign in Scotland.]

(S) Yorkshire Arch. Journal, V25, 1920, PP1-47.

Family notes:
• Since “John Savile” [1420–1481] the father, this John [~1440-?], and John the son [~1460–1504, knighted 1481,] all have the same name and title; it is possible/probable that some records may refer to any one of them. John’s father John seems to have been very active until about 1468, making records before that time likey his.

Children of John and Jane:

i. John Sayville (46160), born ~1460 in England.

ii. Alice Sayvile, born ~1460 in England.
Alice married Sir William Calverley, the elder.
3/30/1503, Alice named in the will of her brother John.
9/10/1522, Alice wrote her will asking to be buried in Calverley church near her husband. (S) Reg. Test., ix, 235; Thoresby Soc., ix, 174.
