      It is said that while Eleanor was dying she passed around to her descendants, silver items which had a crest on them. She claimed to be from a great family and these crested items were to remind them of their great blood. They were suitably impressed and her Whitbread son styled himself a gentleman. She may have been a Radcliffe or Hervey.
