Sir Thomas of Brocket Hall was born about 1405. He was the son of Thomas Brocket and wife Dionice Sampson. Thomas was Member of Parliament for County of Hertfordshire in 1435. He was patron of the Rectory of Graveley from June 1432 until his death.

Thomas married Elizabeth Ashe. Dame Elizabeth as she was known, was heir to the manor of Symonds Hide at Bishops Hatfield which became the Brocket Hall in Hertfordshire. They had no children. The rights to the manor passed to his brother Edward.

From the time of Dame Elizabeth's marriage to Thomas forward, there were TWO Brocket Halls, one in Wheathampstead, Hertfordshire and the original one in Appleton, Yorkshire.
