Remarks:
was raised with the John of Gaunt's own children and was knighted in his own right. He inherited Kettlethorpe, which was much improved by Katherine, and he turned it into a prosperous holding.
He was Constable of Pontefract Castle during Richard's II improvements there. Richard was forced to abdicate in favour of Henry after a few "schisms". Richard died at Pontefract and it is likely that Thomas contrived his death.
