Looking for correct DOB and marriage date for Eleanor Throckmorton.

Richard Knightley, Esq, son of Richard Knightley and Elizabeth Purefoy, was born in 1427.  Most sources list his wife Eleanor's DOB as 1404.  I think she must have been born later, say 1424.  Also I think the marriage date for Richard and Eleanor should be 1450 instead of 1440.  Their children weren't born until after 1450, and Richard would have only been 13 in1440.
