    BARONY OF WEST (V) 1476

    BARONY OF LA WARRE (VIII) 1476

    THOMAS (WEST), LORD LA WARRE, and LORD WEST son and heir aged 19 and more at his father's death. He obtained special livery of his lands, 1 September 1476, having served, 2 years previously, in the expedition to France. Knighted by the King, 18 January 1477/8. He was summoned to Parliament from 15 November 1482 to 15 April 1523. Espousing the cause of Henry VII he obtained from that King, 5 March 1485/6, large grants from the estates in Sussex of the attainted Duke of Norfolk, including the honour of Bramber, the forest of St. Leonards, the towns of Horsham, Shoreham, &c. He was in 1491 one of the commanders in Flanders; aided in suppressing the Cornish rebels in 1497; in 1513 was at the sieges of Therouenne and Tournay, being made a Knight Banneret at the defeat of the French at Guinegate, known as the Battle of the Spurs, 18 August 1513. Present at the Field of the Cloth of Gold. Nominated K.G. 23 April, and installed 11 May 1510. Attended the King's sister in 1514 at her marriage with Louis XII of France.

    He married, 1stly, Elizabeth, sister and heir of Sir John MORTIMER, and daughter of Hugh MORTIMER, of Mortimer's Hall, Hants, by Eleanor, daughter of John CORNWALL. He married, 2ndly, Eleanor, 3rd daughter of Sir Roger COPLEY, of Roughway, Sussex, by Anne, 2nd daughter and coheir of Thomas (Hoo), BARON HOO AND HASTINGS. He died 11 October 1525, and was buried at Broadwater, aged about 68. Will dated 8 October 1524 proved in the Catholic Church of St. Paul, London, 12 February 1525/6. The will of his widow, who was born circa 1476, was dated 10 May 1536 and proved in London 14 November 1536. [Complete Peerage IV:155-6, XIV:243, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    Note: The CP Corrections website provides a little more information and indicates that Thomas had a previously unknown 1st wife, Eleanor (d. bef. 1480), daughter of Henry Percy (d. 1461). She may have died very early, without having resided with Thomas (arranged marriages were often contracted at an early age), since she wasn't mentioned in Thomas' will, as his deceased 2nd wife & surviving 3rd wife were. The only record of Eleanor Percy is a pedigree of the Percy family compiled in the 1480s which showed a daughter of Henry married to a Lord de la Warr.
