Birth: 1330 in Burrough Green, Newmarket, Cambridgeshire, England 1
Death: 1393 1
Burrough Green, Newmarket, Cambridgeshire:
In the will of Lustwine, made between 1017 and 1049, Burrough Green was left to Ely abbey, but in his son Thurstan's will (1043 × 1045) it was left to Ulfketel. In 1066 it belonged to Eddeva and in 1086 was held by Count Alan. The manor of BURGH or BURROUGH with most of Count Alan's lands descended with the honor of Richmond, and c. 1166 Thomas de Burgh (d. 1199) held 4 fees of that honor. In the early 13th century one of the fees was identified as Burrough. It descended in the de Burgh family for 200 years. Thomas was succeeded by his sons Thomas (d. 1234) and Philip (d. 1235). In 1260 Burrough was held by Philip's son Sir Thomas de Burgh, who died in 1284. His son Philip died a year later, the manor passing to Philip's son Thomas, then aged 7. Thomas was knight of the shire for Cambridgeshire in 1311, and was succeeded in 1322 by his son John. Shortly before his death in 1329 John entered a religious house, and made the manor over to his brother Thomas. Thomas died in 1334 leaving a son John, aged 4, and the Crown granted the custody of the manor to John de Verdon. John de Burgh died in 1393 and was succeeded by his son Thomas. On Thomas's death in 1411 his estates were divided between his three half-sisters, the Cambridgeshire lands going to Elizabeth, wife of Sir John Ingoldisthorpe, who held Burrough in 1412.
In 1420 Sir John was succeeded by his son Thomas Ingoldisthorpe who was still a minor when he died in 1422 leaving a son Edmund, aged one. The wardship of Edmund was granted to John, Lord Tiptoft, who married Edmund to his daughter Joan. Edmund died in 1456 leaving a daughter Isabel, who married John Neville, marquess of Montagu. On Joan's death in 1494 the Ingoldisthorpe lands were divided between Isabel's five daughters. Burrough Green went to Elizabeth, wife of Thomas, Lord Scrope of Masham, and after her death to Lucy Brown, her niece. Lucy married Sir John Cutt of Childerley, who held Burrough at his death in 1521. Their son, also John, died in 1528, and his son, a third John, sold Burrough Green to Sir Anthony Cage in 1574.
