He was said to be aged 18 in his father's 1417 i.p.m. i.e. born about 1399[1][2].

The Greene monuments at St Bartholomew, Green’s Norton, Northamptonshire, now largely destroyed, were described by Halstead in 1685[3]. Thomas was recorded on the monument to his son, another Sir Thomas Greene. The Inscription was in Latin, a translation of which is:

"Here lies Thomas Greene, Knight, Lord of Norton, and Matilda, his wife. The said Thomas was son and heir of Thomas Greene, Knight, Lord of the same, and of Philippa, his wife, who was the daughter of Robert, Lord Ferrars of Charteley, and of Elizabeth his wife, daughter of Lord Thomas de Spencer. Thomas Greene, the father of Thomas aforesaid, was son and heir of Thomas Greene, Knight, Lord of Norton aforesaid, and of Mary his wife, daughter of Richard, Lord Talbot, and of Ankarete, his wife, who was the daughter and heir of Lord Strange of Blackmere. Thomas, son of Thomas and Philippa aforesaid, died on the ninth of September, A.D. 1462; and the said Matilda, one of the daughters of John Throckmorton, Esq., formerly Under-Treasurer of England, died on the …. Of the month of … A.D. 14 … May God be gracious to their souls."

Greene-2165 and Greene-4016 appear to represent the same person because: They are the exact same person after careful study. Greene-4016 has serious edit and source issues. Greene-2165 does not. I propose Green-2165 overlay Greene-4016.

Bio states: "He was said to be aged 18 in his father's 1417 i.p.m. ie born 1399, not 1397)." Another good reason for that change is that it makes more sense for Mary Talbot being the mother (having child at age 16 vs age 14).

His alleged mother would have been 6 when he was born. Either his dob is wrong or he's got the wrong parents. I suspect the latter as they already had a son Thomas.

Is there any evidence that he died in Suffolk rather than Green's Norton, Northamptonshire?

Greene-2165 and De Grene-7 appear to represent the same person because: I found this while cleaning up the other family profiles.
