​RE: the information above
In the mid fifteenth century Christopher Luttrell was the owner of Luttrellstown. On 25th March 1455 Christopher Luttrell of Clonchillagh (Clonsilla) died leaving a son called Thomas Luttrell who was nineteen years old and married to Elena, daughter of Philip Bellew. On 4th August 1455 an inquisition post mortem held at Castleknock, Co. Dublin found Christopher Luttrell to have Luttrellstown, held of the manor of Castleknock for 3s 4d per annum; along with Clonsilla which was held of the same manor at 30s per annum; a piece of ground called Tyremolyn which was held at 8s per annum and Barbyeston, held of Castleknock at 47s per annum. For these lands, Christopher Luttrell did royal service and suit of court at the manor of Castleknock.[15]

This inquisition shows that the Luttrell family had Luttrellstown in 1455 but that they were living in Clonsilla. It also shows that the family held no land in chief of the king but instead rented Luttrellstown and other lands from the manor of Castleknock. Evidence from elsewhere shows the Tyrrell family as lords of Castleknock in 1255 and 1355 and possibly in the time of Christopher Luttrell.[16] In 1537 John Burnell and Sir Christopher Barnewall shared the manor of Castleknock in two halves.[17]
