    He was born in 1422 and in 1460 made Sheriff of Warwick and Leicester and was made a Knight the following year.   During the night of Thursday 18th August 1485, the army of the Earl of Richmond rested in Tamworth on the way to Bosworth Field, but it is not clearly evident on which side the sympathy of the Ferrers lay.  There is some probability however that Sir John Ferrers, the eldest son fell at Bosworth on the side of Richard III.  Sir Thomas married Ann, daughter of Sir Leonard Hastings, by whom he had numerous family. His eldest son Sir John married Matilda, daughter and co-heir of Sir John Stanley of Elford, and died in his father?s lifetime leaving issue.  Sir Henry Ferrers, brother to Sir Thomas was of Hambleton, co Rutland, and his son Sir Edward married in 1497 Constance Brome, a daughter and co-heiress of Nicholas Brome of Baddesley Clinton, co Warwick, and thus founded the family of Ferrers of Baddesley.  Sir Thomas died in 1449 [typo for 1499?] and was buried in Tamworth church, and was succeeded by his grandson.
