Richard Luttrell
of Luttrellstown, County Dublin, Ireland

Son of Sir Thomas Luttrell (d. 1554) of Luttrellstown

​Is this the son of Sir Thomas or the son of his cousin, Nicholas Luttrell of Clonsilla?

Sir Thomas Luttrell's cousin, Nicholas, named sons Richard, Andrew and Harry in his Will of 1567. 
Although Nicholas resided in Clonsilla, near Luttrellstown, would his son have been referred to in official records 
as "of Luttrellstown"? If so, then this is most likely who the records refer to and not Richard Luttrell, 
son of Sir Thomas Luttrell of Luttrellstown.

1567-8  In Nicholas Luttrell's (cousin of Sir Thomas Luttrell) WILL is shown a "Simon Cowill" 
without designating what their relationship may be.  
Simon Cowill may have some relation to the "David Cowill, late of Palmerston, near Dublin" who was pardoned in 1538 
"for stealing 20 pounds in silver in a purse from Richard Luttrell".  This may refer to Nicholas Luttrell's son, Richard.
