The Luttrells of Dunster

In 1376 Elizabeth, daughter of Hugh Courtenay, earl of Devon and his wife Margaret Bohun, and wife of Andrew Luttrell, purchased the reversion, after Joan’s death, of the Mohun’s west Somerset estate including Dunster, Minehead and Carhampton for over £3,000. The Luttrells were to keep possession of Dunster, except for brief periods, for over 500 years.
