About Thomas de Morley, 5th Baron Morley

Source: Wikipedia - Redirected from Thomas Morley, 5th Lord Morley

Thomas Morley, 5th Lord Morley (1393-1435) was the 5th Lord of Morley, de jure Lord Marshal, Marshal of Ireland, Privy Councillor.

He took part in the seiges of Rouen, 1418, of Melun, 1420, and Meaux, 1421-22. He was present at the death of King Henry V in 1422, and bore one of the banners at his funeral rites. He was summoned to Parliament from 15 July 1427 to 05 July 1435. In 1430, he was going to France in the retinue of the King. Thomas Morley, 5th Lord Morley, died on 06 Dec 1435, and was buried at Hingham, Norfolk. His widow, Isabel, died 08 Feb 1467, leaving a will dated 03 May 1463, proved 27 Feb 1467.[1]

He married Isabel on or before 5 Feb 1403, daughter of Michael de la Pole, 2nd Earl of Suffolk. They had one son, Robert, 6th Lord Morley, and two daughters, Elizabeth and Anne.

Anne Morley (1413 - 1471) became the wife of Sir John Hastings, and mother of Elizabeth Hastings. In turn, she married Robert Hildyard (? - 1501) and their son Peter (1460-1501) married Joan de la See (1463 - ?). Joan is the great-granddaughter of Lady Elizabeth Percy. Their son Christopher Hildyard (1490 - 1538) married Margaret Coningsby. In turn, their son Martin Hildyard married Emma Rudston (1511 - ?). In turn, their son, Richard Hildyard (1532 - 1602) married Jane Thwenge (1536 - ?). And in turn, their daughter Ursula Hildyard (1577 - ?) married Richard Jackson (? - 1610) in Yorkshire. This line connects Ursula as a direct descendant to Rollo of Normandy, direct ancestor of William the Conqueror, with the JACKSON family of Eske and later Killingswold Grove in Yorkshire.

Decendants from this line include

Sir Anthony Jackson (1599 - 1666), a friend, courtier and herald to Charles I and Charles II Stuarts;

Isaac Jackson, an early (1725) Quaker settler in London Grove Township, Chester County, PA, and one of Isaac's greatgrandsons, Thomas Jackson, born in Nova Scotia, Canada in 1788;

Andrew Jackson, past President of the United States; and

Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, the Confederate States of America General during the US Civil War.


   * This succession from Thomas Morley to Ursula Hildyard is well-documented in several late middle age documents available from Google, Yahoo! Search and elsewhere, as is information on Sir Anthony Jackson and his son Anthony (1628 - ?).
   * The documentation for the descendancy of the latter Anthony's son, Isaac Jackson (1665 - 1751), is provided by Quaker records at Ballitore, County Kildare, England, and after 1725, at Quaker records from several different Quaker Monthly Meetings in rural Chester County in the 18th Century, many of which are on file in the libraries of Swarthmore and Haverford Colleges in Pennsylvania, especially in the manuscript, "Descendants of Isaac and Ann Jackson," and to records of the Pennfield Colony/Pennsfield/Belleview/Beaver Harbour, Nova Scotia, Canada settlement by Loyalist Quakers after 1783.,_5th_Baron_Morley
