Sir John Dinham died in 1457-8 seised of the manors of Eythorpe, Crendwell, and Little Kimble, held of Edward, Prince of Wales, as of the honour of Wallingford, by right of inheritance of Joan his wife, who survived him. [Chan. Inq. p.m. 36 Hen. VI, no. 39] His wife was the heiress of the Darches family, who had held the two first-named manors, and probably part of Little Kimble, [Chan. Inq. p.m. 18 Edw. II, no. 18; ibid. 2 Ric. II, no. 57; Assize R. 1458, m. 26 d.] as subtenants, but presumably Sir John's right in the manor came also through his great-grandmother, Muriel de Moels.
He was succeeded by his son John, Lord Dinham, who died leaving his four sisters and their children as his heirs. [Chan. Inq. p.m. (Ser. 2), xv, no. 58] In the inquisition on his lands, however, he was said to be seised only of tenements in Little Kimble, [ibid] but his heirs afterwards appear to have held portions of the manor. These heirs were his sisters, Lady Elizabeth Fitzwarren, a widow, who afterwards married Sir Thomas Brandon, and Lady Joan Zouche, and his nephews, Sir Edmund Carew and Sir John Arundel, sons of his sisters Margaret and Katherine respectively.
