The following information about Thomas was taken from the Culpepper Family Website, gen.culpepper.com, citing as a sources, R.E., F.S.A. and Rev. J.H.L. Booker, M.A. Col. F.W.T. Attree, "The Sussex Colepepers," Sussex Archaeological Collections XLVII; plus the 1619 Visitations of Kent:
Walter Colepeper, who continued the line, married Agnes, the daughter of Edmund Roper, of St. Dunstans, Canterbury, and is so described on her tombstone at Goudhurst. She was also the widow of John, son of John de Bedgebury, a fact not mentioned in the pedigrees recorded in the Visitations, but which is amply evidenced by an undated Chancery Procceding, temp. Hen. VI., where Walter Culpeper and Agnes, his wife, late the wife of John, son of John de Beggebury and Thomas Chaundeler, chaplain, appear as plaintiffs in a dispute relating to property in Goudhurst, Cranbrook and Hawkhurst, which John, son of Roger de Beggebury, left to pay for two chaplains to sing masses for his soul and for that of Johanna, his wife. (Sussex Colpepers-I)
The Visitation of Kent 1619 says:
Agnes Roper was the daughter of Rudolph Roper (and Beatrice Lewknor, daughter of Thomas Lewkner), son of Thomas Roper (and the daughter of Thomas Appledore), son of Thomas Roper, son of Adam Roper, son of Edwin Roper.
Note: I have Agnes as granddaughter of Ralph (not Rudolph Roper), but my pedigree follows the Visitation of Kent fairly well after that.
