  • Notes 
    • Possibly a daughter of Roger Yarde and Joan Halse of Newton Abbot, Devonshire.

      "Welthian (Walthera/Weltian/Walthean) Yarde was born in Devonshire. Around 1493, she married Walter Yorke, mayor of Exeter, by whom she had a son, Roger (c.1494-February 2, 1535). Her second husband was Thomas Drelne. In around January 1508, she married Sir Hugh Luttrell of East Quantockshead, Somerset (d. February 1521). Following his death, she claimed the manor of East Quantockshead as part of her jointure but this was contested by her stepson, Sir Andrew Luttrell. Her bill of complaint against him claimed that he had seized all her goods and chattels. On June 7, 1521, a brawl took place in Quantock Park in which a man was killed. The feud seems to have been settled with a marriage, that of Roger Yorke to Hugh Luttrell's daughter Eleanor." [A Who's Who of Tudor Women]
