    SIR THOMAS DE POYNINGS, (son and) heir, was a knight in April 1315. In February 1322/3 he was preparing for service in Scotland under Earl de Warenne; and in March 1323/4 was going to Aquitaine with Edmund, Earl of Kent. In May 1324 he was summoned by proclamation to the Great Council at Westminster. He took part in the Dunstable tournament in 1333; was summoned against the Scots in 1335 and 1337, and in May 1336 was appointed one of the custodians of the ports and coasts of Surrey and Sussex against the Scots and their foreign allies. He was summoned in April 1337 to a council of prelates and magnates at Stamford, and in June following to a similar assembly at Westininster. He served with a retinue in the King's expedition to Flanders in 1338, and was in Antwerp in July 1339 (e).

    He married, about 1317, Agnes (aged 22 and more in May 1321), younger daughter and coheir of Richard DE ROKESLEY, of Westwood (in Preston) and Ruxley, Kent, by Joan, heir of her brother Bertram DE CRIOL, and daughter of Bertram DE CRIOL (died 1295), by Eleanor, younger daughter and coheir of Maud D'AVRANCHES. He was killed, 10 October 1339, in an attack on the castle of Honnecourt, on the St. Quentin canal, arr. of Cambrai (g). His widow died some time before 22 December 1346, and was buried at Poynings.

    (e) In Mar 1336/7 he was granted an annuity of 200 marks, till he could receive an equivalent in land, in recognition of his good services to the King's brother, John of Eltham, late Earl of Cornwall, and of his then engagement with the King--with the assent of Parliament.
