About Thomas Wale

Sir Thomas Wale

(1303-1352) Born: 1303, possibly in Weedon, Northamptonshire Died: 26th October 1352 in Gascony, France

This knight was the only son of Sir Thomas Wale, by Lucy, his wife, Lady of the Manor of Weedon Pinkney in Northamptonshire, which she held of the King in capite by the service of one knight's fee. Her filiation does not appear, but her right to the estate was, after her husband's death, contested, in 1315, by one Edmund Pinkney. As he did not appear to defend his claim, judgment was given in the lady's favour and she died seized of the manor in 1343, when it devolved to her son and heir, then forty years of age.

Sir Thomas was a founder member of the Most Noble Order of the Garter. He attended King Edward III into Flanders, in 1339, and had command, under William De Bohun, Earl of Northampton, in the expedition to Brittany in 1342. He was also beyond the sea in the King's service with Richard, Earl of Arundel, in 1344. Few memorials remain of this individual, who, however, is described as having been "a knight of great virtue and worthiness." The following entry occurs, in 1348, in the household book of the Black Prince, "1 al. cup. deaur. de arg. de opere prec. empt. eod. die dat. per. dnum dno Thome Wale."

He died in Gascony on 26th October 1352, leaving no issue by Nichola, his wife, whose family is not known, but who survived him. By the inquisition, taken after his death, it was found that Peter Malore, the son of his deceased sister, Margaret; his sister, Alice, the wife of Thomas Chamberlain; and his sister, Juliana, were his next heirs. They quitclaimed, to the King, the manor of Weedon, by fine, in 1351.
