Elizabeth Lyttelton was born about 1395. She lived her life out near the village of Frankley, north-east of the parish church. The site of her old manor-house lies to the west of the church and was the chief seat of the Lyttelton family. Elizabeth was the only surviving heir to her family's property in Frankley.
Thomas Lyttelton grandson of the first Thomas Lyttelton of Frankley by his second wife Acelina, daughter of Warin Fitz William de Upton. He claimed the property and based that claim on the fine levied in 1281 by which Nicholas de Wheathampstead and Emma his wife had settled Frankley on her son Nicholas de Frankley and his heirs, with contingent remainders to her half-brother Edmund Lyttelton. Lyttelton stated that Thomas son of Nicholas de Frankley and the said Edmund had both died without issue, though it has been seen above that Thomas had a son Edward, who was alive in 1401–2, and the defendants stated was still alive at the time of the suit. Thomas Lyttelton, the claimant, was nephew and heir of Edmund Lyttelton, and, in spite of the numerous sales that had taken place, he recovered seisin of the manor, and in 1410 settled it on his wife Maud. He is said to have died in 1422, leaving an only daughter Elizabeth, who married Thomas Westcote alias Heuster.
Elizabeth de Luttleton/Lyttelton/Littleton married Thomas Westcote alias Heuster, Esq. Because of her family stature, Elizabeth retained the surname of Littleton/Lyttelton/Luttleton as did her children. Her husband Thomas served the office of escheat of Worcester, 29th Henry VI., 1451.
