Families covered: Holand of Exeter, Holand of Kent

We originally launched this page as 'Holland2' and (in part) spelt the family name as 'Holland' rather than 'Holand'. We retitled the page on 10.10.2003 to make it clear that this page and its continuations were nothing to do with Holland1, in the Continental section of the database, which covers the Counts of Holland.

  m. Elinor de Metsted (dau of Sir Andrew de Metsted of Upcott Avenel)
  f. Joan de Holand
  Identified as elder daughter by BLG1952 (Radclyffe of Foxdenton and Hyde). Some sources show her as sister rather than daughter of Lord Robert. Some sources show her 2nd and 3nd marriages the other way around.
  m1. Sir Hugh Dutton of Dutton (b 08.12.1276, d 1326)
  m2. Sir John Radclyyffe of Ordsall (d 1362)

  m. John La Warre (dvp before 24.06.1331)
  i. ? Matilda (Maud) de Holand (d 18.11.1360) possibly (by no means certainly) of this family
  The suggestion that Maud may be of this family is reported by Vivian & TCP (Swynnerton) but that appears to have confused the Thomas de Swynnertons. The implication is that her father may have been the same person as Sir Robert de Holland of Yoxhall but if that was the case then the Swynnerton records have confused the Matildas & Thomases.
  m1. John de Latimer, de jure 3rd Lord (b c1335, dsps 1356/7)
  m2. Thomas de Swynnerton
  ii. Avina de Holand probably of this generation
  m. (1285) Adam Austin 'de Ireland' of Hutt & Hale (d 1324)
