Sir John Luttrell
of Hoton Pagnel, Yorkshire
abt. 1100 - 1150

There are significant issues concerning the accuracy of the information provided by Burke and Lodge

From The Roll of Battle Abbey, Pg. 72 by John Bernard Burke, Esq.
"Loterell - In the reigns of Henry I. And Stephen, Sir J. Luttrell (son or grandson probably of the Norman warrior) held, in capite, the manor of Hoton Pagnel, in Yorkshire, which eventually devolved upon an heiress, who married John Scott, feudal Lord of Calverley, and Steward of the household to the Empress Maud.  Of the deriviative branches were the feudal barons of Irnham, the Earls of Carhampton and the Luttrells of Dunster, co. Somerset."  
From The Peerage of Ireland: Or, A Genealogical History of the Present ..., Volume 3
By John Lodge
Sir John Luttrell held, in capite, the manor of Hoton Pagnel in Yorkshire, in the reigns of K. Henry I and King Stephen, by service of 4 Knights fees and half, as did his posterity, in the male line, until 6 K. Henry V.  He had a daughter who married John Scott, Lord of Calverlay, and steward of the household of Maud, the Empress.

Henry I was King of England 1100 - 1135
Stephen was King of England from 22 Dec 1135 - 25 Oct 1154


“John Scot the first is given a son, John the second. He is stated to have married a daughter of Sir John Luttrell, of Huton Paynell. . . .the old pedigrees are unsupported by any evidence. . . ."
The Calverley Charters: Presented to the British Museum by Sir Walter Calverley Trevelyan, Volume 1, pg.xxxii

Geoffrey Luttrell, of Gamston and Bridgford in Nottinghamshire, was the first Luttrell documented to hold the manor and lands of Hooton Pagnel by his marriage with Frethesant, daughter and coheiress of William Paganel.
DUNSTER AND ITS LORDS by H. C. Maxwell-Lyte, 1882

“In 1203 Geoffrey acquired Frethesant, daughter and co-heir of the Yorkshire baron, William Painel. This brought to Geoffrey half the Painel barony in Hooten Painel, Yorkshire, valued at seven and a half knights’ fees. . . .”

Hooton Pagnel was held by Ralph Pagnel (and his descendants) from very near the time of the Conquest (1066) as "tenant-in-chief" of Yorkshire, and elsewhere.
Lyte, Sir H.C. Maxwell, K.C.B. A History of Dunster and of the Families of Mohun & Luttrell. The St. Catherine Press, London, 1909. pp. 63-

(-after 1088). Ellis says that "it is all but certain that [Ralph Paynel] was a younger son of the seigneur of Moûtiers-Hubert near Lisieux, and had been with his elder brother William at the battle of Hastings"[89]. He appears to base this on the Chronique de Normandie, based on le Roman de Rou, which names "Paomiel [which Ellis transcribes as "Painals"] de Moustier-Hubert" among those who took part in the conquest of England in 1066[90]. Domesday Book records “Ralph Paynel” holding Stockland, East Quantoxhead, Beggearn Huish, West Bagborough and Newhall in Somerset; Drax and other properties in Yorkshire[91]. He held Irnham, Lincolnshire in Domesday book

Spellings of Paganel, Paynel, Painel, and Pagnel refer to this family
Pavernel is a distinctly different family.
