  • ID: I41171
  • Name: Thomas Abberbury
  • Sex: M
  • Death: 1416 1
  • Note: 1

    Married Alice, widow of John Baldington of Albury.
    Thomas took longer than his brother to establish himself, but after a spell as an esquire of the royal household his future seemed secured by his appointment as master of the horse to Richard II's second wife, Isabella, in 1397. By the time of their father's death, early in 1399, a courtier dynasty seemed in prospect.
    Yet the next few years brought the start of a swift decline in the fortunes of the Abberbury family. Thomas's career was cut short by the usurpation of Henry IV for, once Queen Isabella was returned to France in 1402, he was given no further employment at the Lancastrian court.
