About Thomas Stoughton

He was 7th Lord of Stoughton, and Steward to the 12th Earl of Arundel. He was a Catholic or Catholic sympathizer (1564 "misliker"). [Michael Questier, Catholicism and Community in Early Modern England (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2006), 44.] In 1575 he sold the advowson of Stoke parsonage, which his father had purchased in 1549, to William and Elizabeth Hammond of Guildford (she was the mother of his daughter-in-law), with the stipulation that after they died it would pass to the town of Guildford for the benefit of the free school.

"Adrian Stoughton's father, Thomas, had taken, as his second wife, Edmund Lewkenor's daughter Elizabeth." [Michael Questier, Catholicism and Community in Early Modern England (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2006), 45, note 68 (citing Hasler, HC, III, 453; PRO, E 368/460, mem. 17a).]
