His grandson Edmund FitzHerbert was born at his house in Wales in 1338.
If I have the right man, he outlived his son in law Reginald FitzHerbert, but then that man died leaving a son aged 8.
The Hakluyt family was of Welsh descent, having originated in Radnorshire, but by the time of Leonard Hakyluyt?s birth in about 1352 it had long been established in Herefordshire. Leonard?s own landed property is difficult to trace in its entirety. In Herefordshire he is known to have held an estate at Stoke Edith, just east of Hereford, and he may also have owned the manor of Lower Venn, north of the city, as well as premises at Longford, near Leominster. At his death he possessed (unspecified) lands in Worcestershire. Outside the marches he had estates in Somerset and Dorset worth £66 13s.4d. p.a. (in 1412), including the manor of Oldland and property in Shepton Mallet and Broadmayne. His marriage brought him further holdings in the south-west, namely the manor of Grove in South Brent, Somerset, and properties at Degembris, Tremough and Carvath, in Cornwall.
The two children I show for him are shown as being born 40 years apart?
