Thomas of Appleton and Westminster c 1370-1435
Thomas Broket established a land-owning dynasty that lasted 275 years. Born into a parish-gentry clan he rose to county and then national level. He became Lord of a manor near York c 1393 through marriage to the heiress. By 1399 he was working in the Exchequer at Westminster as a Clerk, and as an Attorney soon after, if not before. Then in 1410 he was appointed Lord Treasurer's Remembrancer. This brought him wealth through grants from the king, such that he could arrange a marriage for his son Thomas to a yet wealthier heiress in Hertfordshire, rebuild the manor in Appleton and endow its parish church with a Lady Chapel, probably a chantry to his perpetual memory.
