    Sir John de Mohun, owner of Dunster Castle acquired extravagant habit and ran foul of the law, but conscious of his mounting debts, Lady Joan de Mohun nee Burghersh set out to secure the Mohun inheritance for herself embarking on a series of sophisticated transactions, frequently of dubious legality, The first round of conveyances and reconveyances gave her a life interest in most of John's properties, including Dunster Castle.
    From 1374 to 18th November 1376 Lady Elizabeth Luttrell negotiated the purchase of the reversion of Dunster Castle, the manors of Kilton, MInehead and Carhampton and the hundred of Carhampton from Lady Joan de Mohun for the price of 5,000 marks with the propeerty being settled. Joan de Mohun enjoyed good health and survived nearly thirty years until 1404, indeed outliving Lady Lutterell, when the castle passed to her son, Sir Hugh Luttrell.
