"Although born in Bristol, the plaintiff, Thomas Perrot of London Esq, formerly of the Brook in Carmarthenshire, was lineally descended from Sir Owen Perrot's fourth son John (d.c.1560s). The Perrotts of Brook were cousins to Sir James Perrot with whom they (especially the plaintiff's father also named Thomas) were on good terms.
Under the terms of a deed of settlement of his estates issued by Sir John Perrot in 1584, Thomas's father had been named as a beneficiary in the event of the deaths of the issuer's sons, namely Sir Thomas (d.1594), William (d.c.1587) and Sir James (d.1637). After Sir John's attainder for treason his estates were forfeit to the Crown and from 1594-1608 Sir James and Thomas (plaintiff's father) worked together to recover them."
G.D. Squibb, Reports of Heraldic Cases in the Court of Chivalry 1623-1732.

Despite this early co-operation, the interests of the two parties were incompatible and Thomas Perrott, often in alliance with the Countess of Northumberland, later opposed Sir James' title to several substantial properties.
