Constance Longeley - Children with Edmund Holland, 4th Earl of Kent,

Constance had a daughter, Eleanor Holland with Edmund (b. Oct 1406 d. Sept 23, 1459). Eleanor married James Tuchet, 5th Baron Audley (who was killed at the Battle of Blore Heath, 1459), styled Eleanor Tuchet (de Holland), Baroness Audley.

Whether or not Eleanor’s parents married was challenged for Eleanor when she attempted to lay claim to her father’s lands and titles in 1430. Although she produced witnesses to prove the marriage of her parents, in about 1404, on the petition of Edmund’s sisters, Joan Duchess of York (Eleanor’s step-grandmother) and Margaret Holland, Duchess of Clarence, Eleanor was adjudged illegitimate and unable to inherit from her father.

Constance of York, Countess of Gloucester, was buried at Reading Abbey in Berkshire
