  • Notes 
    • "[P]aymaster of the King's ships; served in Poitou and Gascony 1206; served in Ireland 1204 and 1215; appointed by King John as his agent in negotiations with regard to the dower of Queen Berengaria; received from King John grants for life of the houses of the Jew, Isaac of York, at Oxford, and Northampton." [The Wallop Family]

      "Sir Geoffrey Luttrell, of Gamston and Bridgeford, co. Notts, took part in the unsuccessful rebellion of John, Count of Mortain during the absence of his brother, Richard I, and, as a result, lost his lands. These were, however, restored to him on John's accession to the throne. His name occurs at this period as witness to many royal charters, he having been in close personal attendance on the King. He was for a time paymaster of the King's ships. In 1204, and also in 1215, he was in Ireland, vested with large administrative powers, and in 1206 in Poitou and Gascony, as one of the King's treasurers. As a reward for personal services, he received from King John grants for life of the houses of the Jew, Isaac of York, at Oxford and Northampton, and those of the Jew, Bonnechose, at Oxford. He received a further grant of land at Croxton, co. Leicester. [...Note (b):] The name is probably a diminutive of the French word Loutre, an otter. The farm of Arques in Normandy was in 1180 and 1198 held by one Osbert Lotrel." [Complete Peerage]
