Of Holwell Castle, Devonshire.
Married 2nd Elizabeth ___ who survived him.
A perfect motte and bailey in a perfect Devon valley, Holwell Castle is one of the few castles of consequence in North Devon. In fact the whole history of this Castle is obscure. it would almost certainly have been built in the late 11th century or early 12th when the Normans were pushing their way through Devon. There seems to have been no stonework added, so perhaps it was abandoned quite soon afterwards.
