Holme Hall branch of the Eyre Family


Roger Eyre bap 1428, the fourth son of Robert Eyre and his wife Joana de Padley, married Elizabeth Whittington heiress of Whittington estates.

Mathew de Hathersage gave the manor of Dunston and Holme Hall, to the prior and convent of Lenton in Nottinghamshire. King Henry the VIII, granted it to Francis Leake, during the dissolution of the monasteries. Roger Eyre having married settled at Holme Hall about 1450, as leasee, probably, under the priory of Lenton. Thomas Eyre, who died in 1595, sold Holme Hall to the Leakes, already possessed of the manor under King Henry's grant mentioned above.
