"Dominus Galfridus Louterell me fieri fecit"
'The Lord Geoffrey Luttrell
caused me to be made'
reads the inscription above the illustration of Sir Geoffrey Luttrell, his wife Agnes de Sutton, and daughter-in-law Beatrice le Scrope. The illustration is from "one of the most famous manuscripts in the world",
written and illuminated in England early in the 14th century for Sir Geoffrey Luttrell of Irnham in Lincolnshire. This Sir Geoffrey was the great-great grandson of Geoffrey Luttrell, a "privy counselor" to King John and his trusted emissary to the Pope and ambassador to Ireland in its quietest years of King John's reign. This "original" Sir Geoffrey was very possibly the "father/founder" of the great Luttrell families of England, Ireland, America and Australia.
