Biographical Detail

It is likely that Thomas Lowthroppe was the son of Robert and Ellen Aston Lowthroppe and was born in the East Riding of Yorkshire in the late spring of 1536. He was reportedly baptized in Sheriburton (i.e., Cherry Burton) Parish, which was in Harthill Wapentake.[1]

It would seem likely that he spent his entire life in this locality and, concomitantly, he appears to have become a substantial landowner.


There is evidence that Thomas Lowthroppe married three times: first, to a widow, Elizabeth Clark, whose maiden name may have been Wood; second to either Mary or Maud, further identity unknown; and third, to Jane, whose maiden name is believed to have been Carter.

Between these three wives, Thomas is attributed as the father of twenty-two children, of which at least nine sons and six daughters survived. Within this context, Thomas' second wife has been plausibly identified as Mary Howell, daughter of John Howell and the sister of Elizabeth, wife of Thomas younger brother, Lawrence. Indeed, such intermarriages between local families have been common over much of human history. In contrast, the basis for the identification of Thomas wife as Mary Salte of Yoxall in Staffordshire seems to be the result of a confusion of identies between Thomas Lowthropp of Cherry Burton in Yorkshire and Thomas Lathropp of Leighe in Staffordshire.

Although, Huntington affirms the descent of the Staffordshore Lathropp family from ancestors in Yorkshire, it is clear from his summary of the children of Thomas and Mary Salte Lathropp that she could not have been the second wife of Thomas Lowthrope of Cherry Burton.[2] Geographically, Staffordshire lies roughly one hundred miles southwest of the East Riding of Yorkshire and, although this is not a large distance by modern standards, in the sixteenth century it would have been substantial. Moreover, Mr. Clifford Stott asserts that Thomas Lowthrope's second wife was neither Mary Howell nor Mary Salte, but, rather, she was named Maud; maiden name unknown.[3] Accordingly, the second wife of Thomas Lowthroppe should be properly regarded as otherwise unidentified.
