  BEB1844 (in its articles on Savile of Thornley, Savile of Methley, and Savile of Copley) identifies a Henry of this generation as marrying Ellen Copley (dau of Thomas Copley of Copley) in about 1300 and having 3 sons (1) John, 1st of Copley, but with no pedigree until John, Bart of Copley; (2) Thomas, ancestor of Saviles of Methley and hence the Earls of Mexborough; and (3) Nicholas. We follow BP1934, which starts with the John of Savile Hall who was father of Sir John of Eland, as showing that the Henry who married Helen Copley (and was father of John, Thomas and Nicholas) had that marriage in about 1403 was son of Henry of Thornhill, youngest son of Sir John of Eland.
