About Thomas Heron
Will of Thomas Heron of South Mimms, Middlesex, proved 27 January 1581. Mentions among other people:-
- "my uncle Jenkyn Heron"
- "my wellbeloved cosen Edward Heron of Stamford" (overseer)
- "Ciciley my wife" (executrix)
- "my father Gyles Heron"
Lyons’s malice did not stop there, for it was at his instance that in the month following Heron’s death three of his brothers were examined by the Council with regard to their share in his treason: all were found innocent and were dismissed. Two of them, Christopher and John, were servants of (Sir) Ralph Sadler, a neighbour of the Herons to whom Giles Heron’s schoolboy sons had appealed for help during their father’s imprisonment.
In July 1554 Queen Mary restored to Thomas Heron, the elder of these sons, part of his father’s lands.6
