Richard COURTENAY (Bishop of Norwich)

Born: 1382

Died: 1413/5

Buried: Westminster Abbey, London, England

Notes: nephew of William Courtenay, Archbishop of Canterbury, and a descendant of Edward I. Educated at Exeter College, Oxford, he entered the church, where his advance was rapid. He held several prebends, was dean of St. Asaph and then dean of Wells, and became Bishop of Norwich in 1413. As chancellor of the university of Oxford, an office to which he was elected in 1407 and again. In 1410, Courtenay asserted the independence of the university against Thomas Arundel, Archbishop of Canterbury, in 1411; but the Archbishop, supported by Henry IV and the Pope, eventually triumphed. Courtenay was a personal friend of Henry V, before and after he came to the throne; and in 1413, immediately after Henry’s accession, he was made treasurer of the royal household. On two occasions he went on diplomatic errands to France, and he was also employed by Henry on public business at home. Having accompanied the King to Harfleur in Aug 1415, Courtenay was attacked by dysentery and died on the 15 Sep 1415, his body being buried in Westminster Abbey.

Elizabeth COURTENAY

Born: ABT 1430

Died: 1 Sep 1493, Dunster, Somerset, England

Buried: Unknown Dunster Church, Somerset, England

Notes: in 1450, the Bishop at Exeter issued a license for a marriage to be celebrated in the private chapel of Powderham Castle between James Luttrell and Elizabeth daughter of Sir Phillip Courtenay, his late guardian. A large part of the Luttrell estate was settled on her in jointure, some two years later. In the proceedings of 1475, Lady Luttrell is described as a widow. She had, in point of fact, had two husbands. Sir James Luttrell had, as we have seen, been mortally wounded at the second battle of St. Albans and attainted. After his death, she had married his cousin, Sir Humphrey Touchet, brother of Lord Audley, but he in turn was taken prisoner at the battle of Tewkesbury and beheaded. Even in those distracted times of civil war, there could not have been many widows who had, within eleven years, lost two husbands fighting on behalf of the unfortunate House of Lancaster. She eventually married a third husband, Thomas Mallet of Enmore in Somerset, but, according to common medieval custom, she retained the surname of Luttrell until her death in the reign of Henry VII. It was under that name that she, in 1476, stood godmother to Richard, the short-lived son of her patron, George, Duke of Clarence. Her feelings at the christening must have been mixed, for it was performed at Tewkesbury, the very place where her late husband had lost his head.

John COURTENAY of Tremere

Born: 1520/21

Died: 1560, Tremere, Lanivet, Cornwall, England

Notes: third son of Richard Courtenay of Lostwithiel by his second wife, Jane, dau. of John Boscawen of Tregothnan. Educ. New Inn. Married Elizabeth, dau. and coh. of Richard Trengove, alias Nance of Nance in Illogan. Attorney, common pleas by 1559. A younger son of a cadet line of the influential Devon family seated at Powderham, in his youth he appears to have been attached to Cromwell's household, since the minister' s accounts for 1538 include payments for the care of one John Courtenay whose arm had been badly cut, and also for his education at an inn of chancery, where as an attorney Courtenay kept chambers until his death. He prospered in his profession, buying the Tremere estate of 250 acres and consolidating his position in his native county by a fortunate marriage. In the autumn of 1553 Courtenay used his family's connexion with Lostwithiel to have himself elected the town's junior Member in Mary's first Parliament. (The clerk compiling the list of Members for this Parliament inadvertently began to enter Courtenay's name alongside Dunheved but on realizing his mistake he corrected it). Neither he nor his fellow- Member Christopher Dauntesey, opposed the initial measures to restore Catholicism, but he is not known to have been returned to the following Parliament, unless he sat for Penryn, the names of whose Members are lost. His home at Tremere was only four miles from Bodmin and his election there with Ralph Michell for the second Parliament of 1554 met the Queen's wish that local residents should be chosen: his name was inserted, as was Michell's, in a different hand on the indenture. Both men failed to observe th chancellor's comments in his opening speech on attendance, and for their early departure from the Commons they were informed against in the King's Bench during Easter term 1555. Courtenay did not answer his summons to appear until Michaelmas 1556, by which time he had been distrained 16s., and he then ask for judgment to be deferred until the next law term: when the Hilary term came no further process was taken against him and the case was allowed to drop. The action pending against Courtenay did not prevent his further appearance at Westminster in the autumm of 1555, this time as a Member for Penryn, where he presumably owed his election to his fellow- Member Ralph Couche. Courtenay sued a general perdon at the accession of Elizabeth, and died on 1 Mar 1560, being buried at Lanivet, where a monument was erected to his memory. He left life interest in the Tremere property to his widow, who later married Thomas Arundell.
