About Sir Thomas Greene, VI, Lord of Greens Norton

Sir Thomas Greene, (VI), Lord of Greens Norton, was born in 1421 and died on 9 September 1462.

  • parents: son of Sir Thomas Greene and Phillippa Ferrers. 


  1. Matilda Throckmorton, daughter of Sir John de Throckmorton. Note: Possibly Maud and Matilda are the same person, as different sites show either as the mother of John. Other sites, however, show them as sisters both married to Thomas.

Note: "Maud" *is* short for "Matilda", and had long since become the common-use form, with "Matilda" restricted to formal occasions and legal documents (hattip to Justin Swanstrom).

Child of Sir Thomas Greene and Matilda Throckmorton

  1. Sir Thomas Greene+ b. c 1461, d. 9 Nov 1506.  Married Joan Fogge.

Sir Thomas Greene, of Green's Norton, b. Norton, 10 Feb. 1399/1400, d. 18 Jan. 1461/1462, sheriff of Northamptonshire 1454, m. (1) by 16 Dec. 1421, Philippa de Ferrers, and prob. had, evidence unverified.

Elizabeth Greene, m. abt. 1440, William Raleigh, Esq., of Farnborough, co. Warwick, d. 15 Oct. 1460, son of John Raleigh and his wife Idony Cotesford, dau. of Thomas Cotesford. (The fact fact of this marriage is stated in two later pedigrees, one Greene (British Libary, P 13573 Harl. 1412) and one Raleigh (Visit of Warwick (1619), 77), and supported by the Inq.p.m. of Elizabeth's brother, Sir Thomas Greene, recording that on 4 Jul. 1452 William Raleigh (with other feoffes who were related to Thomas's wife Mathilda (Maud) Throckmorton) were seised of the Greene manor of Kegworth, co. Leicester, which they released to Thomas Greene and his wife Mathilda; but see note at end.)

NOTE: the 1585 King of Arms Greene pedigree, cited in gen. 35, states that Thomas and Philippa had three sons (Thomas, Anthony and John) and four daughters (Elizabeth wife of "Sir William Rowley of co. Warwick," Joan, wife of John Reading, Isabel, wife of Edmund Cornwall, Margaret, wife of Nicholas Haulte) (printed in The Greene Family of England and America with Pedigrees (Boston, 1901)). Search of published contempory records has provided as yet the identification of only two children of Thomas and Philippa: Thomas and Isabel.
