Death: BEF 1396

The Nowers were lords of Gayhurst with which this manor of Weston Underwood descended to the last John de Nowers, against whom John Barker of Olney, merchant, obtained judgement in 1361 for the recovery of £20. The sequel is probably to be found in the transfer of the manor two years later to Barker for the yearly rent of 8 marks, which rent was quitclaimed to him in the following year by John de Nowers.
John Barker of Olney, who appears to be identical with John de Olney, described in 1371 as 'marchaunt' of Weston, in 1375 obtained permission for himself and his wife Denise to have a portable altar and to choose their confessor.
John Olney had died before 1396, and had been succeeded by his son John, then holding the manor with his mother Denise, Sir Richard Abburbury and John Olney of London, the reversion belonging to himself.
