The record of the inquisition post mortem for Elizabeth Hopton held on 3 October 1564 states as follows:
"Hopton, Elizabeth, ob. 3 Jan. 6 Eliz. - Inq.at Salop 3 Oct. 6 Eliz. - Salop - John Hopton, s. & h. of his father & mother, aet. 50 years".

This would appear to relate to Elizabeth née Wolryche, widow of Edward Hopton, and daughter of Humphrey Wolryche and Eleanor Peshale (see the pedigree of Hopton of Hopton, and Canon Frome, co. Hereford in the Visitation of Shropshire, II 256-259).
Marlon Lewis (without citing a source) estimates the date of marriage for Edward Hopton and Elizabeth Wolryche as 1524. If the age of 50 for John Hopton (born c. 1514) given in the inquisition is remotely accurate, the estimated date should be much earlier which, in turn, brings into question his estimated date for the marriage of Humphrey Wolryche and Eleanor Peshale (1504) (https://our-royal-titled-noble-and-commoner-ancestors.com/p2986.htm#i89686
Eleanor Peshale was the daughter of Humphrey Peshale (died 1498), a relationship confirmed by the 1515-1518 TNA case record:
"Plaintiffs: John Blount, esquire, son and heir of Thomas Blount, knight, and Katherine, his wife, granddaughter and heir of Humphrey Peshall, esquire. Defendants: Humphrey Wolriche and Eleanor, his wife, Hugh, son of Joan Sandford (Sawford), and Richard Alesop, and Elizabeth, his wife. Subject: Detention of deeds relating to the manors of Knightley, Hopton, Theyne, Blythwood, Little Onn, Caldon, and Waterfall, messuages and land there, and one-third of the manor of Allstonefield, late of the said Humphrey, father of the said Eleanor, Joan, and Elizabeth. Staffordshire, Shropshire".

The original pleadings are available at Anglo-American Legal Tradition but I am unable to read the images which are very faint.
The inquisitions post mortem taken after the death of Humphrey Peshale show that he had two wives, the first not known and the second Lettice Harcourt. He had a son Hugh Peshale by his first marriage who predeceased his father and whose daughter Katherine, by then married to John Blount, was 21 or more at the date of the inquisition (1502). The inquisitions also confirm that Humphrey had a son Richard Peshale by Lettice Harcourt born c. 1498 (aged 3 in 1502).

It is also perhaps of note that there was some doubt about the findings of the inquisitions which, if traversed, would have led to John Blount obtaining custody of the lands of Humphrey Peshale (C.P.R. 1494-1509, 351).
There do not appear to be any firm dates for the birth and first marriage of Lettice Harcourt. Her brother Robert Harcourt was born c. 1468, 19 at the time of the inquisition post mortem for his father, John Harcourt (3 November 1487). John Harcourt was born c. 1450 (20 in 1470) and died on 26 June 1484. Cal. IPM, Henry VII 1, no. 329.
Is there any evidence that confirms that Eleanor Peshale (and her sisters) were the daughters of Lettice Harcourt, rather than children of the first marriage of Humphrey Peshale? A timeline for Lettice which leads to the birth of a great-grandson c. 1514 or great-great-grandson for John Harcourt looks very tight, the more so if the births of the daughters are not distanced from the birth of the son Richard in 1498. It is also perhaps worth noting that one of the parties to the 1515-1518 case was a grandson, Hugh son of Joan Sandford. I accept that this query is predicated primarily on the accuracy of the 1564 inquisition summary for Elizabeth Hopton where the age of the son John may be materially misstated.
