[Burke's Peerage]



    THOMAS (DE BEAUCHAMP), defacto EARL OF WARWICK, also hereditary Sheriff of Worcestershire and Chamberlain of the Exchequer, 2nd but 1st surviving son and heir male, was born before 16 March 1338/9; knighted, with his brother Guy, July 1355; was granted for his good service a pension of 100 marks, 26 November following; was going to Prussia, with his brother William, November 1367, and to Brittany, May 1368; and had seisin of his inheritance as heir male of entail, 7 February 1369/70. He was sent with the Earl of Suffolk to Cherbourg, July 1370, to escort the King of Navarre to England; sailed with the King's unsuccessful expedition for the relief of Rochelle and Thouars, August 1372; nominated K.G. 1373; took part in John of Gaunt's historic but fruitless march from Calais to Bordeaux, August-December 1373, and in the descent on Brittany, 1375; Chief Commissioner to enforce the truce with Scotland, 29 January and 29 July 1375, and a Commissioner for the same, 6 September 1380. In the "Good Parliament" of 1376 and in those of February and October 1377 he was a Commissioner appointed by the Lords to act with the Commons for reform. At the Coronation of Richard II, 16 July 1377, he carried the third sword and exercised his hereditary office of Pantler. He was appointed Admiral of the fleet towards the North, 5 December 1377; Guardian of the King communi sententia, circa Februaty 1379/80; a Commissioner of retrenchment, 2 March following; and he was going to Ireland with the Earl of March April 1380. During the Peasants' Revolt, June 1381, he was with the King in the Tower and was later sent, with Sir Thomas Percy, to protect St. Albans Abbey. In 1385 he accompanied Richard II on his only expedition into Scotland. On 14 November 1387 the Earls of Gloucester, Warwick and Arundel, having taken up arms, "appealed" of treason the King's advisers, the Duke of Ireland (de Vere) and the Earl of Suffolk; and, with the Earl of Derby, they trapped and defeated de Vere at Radcot Bridge, 20 December following. In the "Merciless Parliament" that followed, February 1387/8, these Lords Appellant, including Warwick, impeached de Vere and Suffolk and other leaders of the King's party, some of whom were executed. They further obtained a grant of 20,000 for themselves, 2 June 1388, and, having introduced some reforms, remained in power till May 1389. After some years of retirement and as a result of a law-suit in 1396, he was compelled to hand over Gower and Swansea Castle to the Earl of Nottingham, 1 June 1397. Possibly as a result of this he may have joined in the alleged plot of Gloucester and Arundel (which was betrayed to Richard Il by Nottingham), for which he was arrested in the house of the Bishop of Exeter at Temple Bar on a charge of high treason and committed, 12 July 1397, to the Tower of London and afterwards to Tintagel Castle, Cornwall. At his trial in Parliament, 28 September following, he confessed his treason and pleaded guilty, whereby accordingly his honours and estates were forfeited and he himself banished to the Isle of Man under guard of William (le Scrope), Earl of Wiltshire, who treated him harshly. Being liberated on the accession of Henry IV, at whose Coronation, 13 October 1399, he bore the third sword, he was restored in Parliament, 19 November following. He became a member of the Council, before 4 December 1399, accompanied the King against the rebel Earls, January 1399/1400, and was at Shrewsbury, with the Archbishop of Canterbury and Duke of York, 15 October 1400.

    He married, before April 1381, Margaret, daughter of William (FERRERS), 3rd LORD FERRERS (of Groby), by his 1st wife, Margaret, sister and (in her issue) coheir of William, 2nd EARL OF SUFFOLK, 3rd daughter of Robert (DE UFFORD), 1st EARL OF SUFFOLK. He died 8 April 1401, aged over 62, and was buried in St. Mary's, Warwick. M.I. She died 22 January 1406/7 and was buried with him. M.I.
