Biography

Thomas Knyvett was born in 1447.[1][2] He was the son and heir apparent of John Knyvett, Esq. of Stanway and of Ramsden-Belhouse, Essex, England, and his wife, Margery Baynard, the daughter of Richard Baynard, Speaker of the House of Commons, but did not inherit as he predeceased his father.[1][2]

Thomas married Elizabeth Lunsford, daughter of William Lunsford Thomasina Barrington, before 4 November 1462.[1][2] They had at least three children:

On 4 November 1463, Thomas' father, John, granted the Manor of Whetle in Essex to William and John Lunsford, brothers of Thomas' wife; this probably was a part of the wedding bargain negotiated between the two families.[3]

Thomas died in 1479, predeceasing his father by about one year.[1][2]
