Biography

Son and heir. At the IPM of his Father in 1545, he was described as aged 21 and more 'et amplius', implying he was born c1522 or a little later. In addition to Elmley castle, he also possessed the manors of Hardwick, Worcestershire, Aston-sub-Edge, Chipping Campden, in Gloucestershire, and Tysoe, Warwickshire. He was a Knight of the Shire for Worcestershire. He had 4 sons and 3 daughters.

Savage was ‘sick in body’ when he made his Will on 17 Aug. 1557 and he died two days later. In fulfilment of his father’s Will he left annuities to his five brothers, including one who was a London apprentice. To his two infant sons he bequeathed 100 marks each and to his two daughters 200 marks. He left his lease of the manor of Hardwick, Worcestershire, to his mother for life, with remainder to his brother Thomas, and his wife Anne was similarly to enjoy the house at Elmley and one-third of the manor of Aston Subedge, Gloucestershire. He included in the Will a list of all his tenants with the value of their holdings. He named his wife and his father-in-law executors and directed them to pay £300 for the dissolved chantry in Elmley for his son William. The Will was proved on 4 July 1558.5

His surviving children are all named in his Will leaving out his son John, and an unnamed daughter, who predeceased him.

He is a descendant of King David 1st of Scotland and his son, Henry, Earl of Huntingdon; and of Alan of Galloway, the de Morvilles, and also the Plantagenets.
