He was born in Wycomb, son of William Munday. He purchased the manor of Markeaton in 1516 as well as Mackworth and Allestree, which are all now parts of Derby from Lord Audley.
In 1515 he served as a Sheriff of the City of London. Seven years later he became the Lord Mayor of London and was knighted in 1529 (some say 1523). He died in 1538.
