    Or de Whitaker.
    Early in the 13th century the Whitacres were holding land at Elmdon; for in 1221 Jordan de Whitacre granted land in Elmdon to Gunnora, daughter of Richard son of Turkil, (fn. 8) to hold of him and his heirs. Some time before 1224 (fn. 9) he also granted land there to Elias son of Elias de Makinton. (fn. 10) Simon de Whitacre, Jordan's son, held Elmdon as half a knight's fee from Simon de Bercheston. (fn. 11) In 1235 he is said to hold the half-fee of the Earl of Warwick, (fn. 12) but in 1242 Hugh de Arderne appears as mesne lord intermediate between them, (fn. 13) and from that time at least the manor was held of the lord of the manor of Hampton-in-Arden.
    The principal seat of the Whitacre family was at Over Whitacre, and Elmdon followed the descent of that manor (fn. 15) (q.v.) until the middle of the 16th century.
    The Hore family, who in the 15th century, by marriage with the heiress of the Whitacres, became lords of half the manor of Over Whitacre, (fn. 16) and apparently of the whole manor of Elmdon, held land in Elmdon at least from c. 1230
    Or died abt 1375?
    Held Elmdon, Warwickshire.
