for daughter Margaret
||Thomas Lewknor is a descendant of a Magna Carta surety baron.|

WikiTree currently gives Thomas a descent from the Magna Carta Surety Robert FitzWalter, on his mother's side. This appears not to be correct. Elizabeth Carew's parents appear to be questionable, and Lucy Willoughby seems not to be identified as a granddaughter of John Grey KG.
Sir Thomas Lewknor was born about 1392.
Sir Thomas Lewknor, sometime Sheriff of Surrey & Sussex, Burgess of Lewes was born about 1392 (age 12 in 1404, 19 in 1411).
He was the son of Roger Lewknor of Horsted Keynes, Esq, and Elizabeth Carew.
Sir Thomas Lewknor, the eldest son, was in 1403, found heir, through his grandmother, Joane D'Oyley, to the extensive estates of the Tregoze family, at Goring, Co. Sussex, and elsewhere in that county, and removed his seat to Goring. 
Sir Thomas Lewknor fought in the Battle of Agincourt in 1415.
He married (1st) before 24 October 1417 Phillippe Dallingridge, daughter of Sir Walter Dallingridge.
She was the widow of Richard Berners, Esq, of West Horsley, surrey (d. 6 August 1412, and daughter and heiress of Walter Dallingridge (or Dalyngrygge), Knt, b Margaret, Daughter of John Chamond.
They had 1 son, Sir Roger, Knt..
He lived at Horsted Keynes, Sussex, England.
Philippa died 2 Oct 1421. 
Sir Thomas married (2nd) before Michaelmas 1426 (as her 2nd husband) Elizabeth Echingham, daughter of Sir William Echingham and his 2nd wife Alice Batisford. 
Sir Thomas Lewknor died on 22 June 1452. His widow survived him, but evidently did not remarry. She was living in 1455; her will, dated 1450/1 (?is that right) was proved 23 Feb 1464 (ambiguous date).
Sheriff of Sussex and Surrey, 1426, 1431-2.
He died in 1452.
Sir Thomas Lewknor left six sons, between whom his large estates were divided.

Children of Thomas and Elizabeth: (married about 1426)
In addition, Elizabeth Lewknor, b. 1423 Broadhurst, Horsted Keynes, Sussex may be a member of the family. Both the birth place and date is plausible, but she is not listed by Richardson.
However, Margaret Lewknor, b. 1432, Kingston, Devon has been de-linked from this family. While the birth date is plausible, the location is not one associated with this family and raises the question of why Margaret's mother would go to Kingston to deliver her.
