Attended Henry VIII on Field of the Cloth of Gold. Thomas seems to have married firstly Eleanor Percy. His subsequent wife 'Elizabeth Mortimer died 29 Jun 1502, according to his will. As she predeceased her brother Sir John Mortimer (d. 1504)', it was actually her son Thomas who was (presumably) Sir John's heir (and he was later the heir of 'Elizabeth's mother (Eleanor)'. Roger Copley, the father of his last wife Eleanor, was probably not a knight. In his will Thomas provides for prayers for the soul of 'Elizabeth' and for the soul of his living wife Eleanor, but makes no mention of any other wife. Favoured Henry VIII's divorce and had large grants of monastic lands.
