    m. Margaret de Neville; d.s.p; Duke of Exeter, K.G., Lord High Chancellor. [Burke's]

    Too young to be knighted in 1397, when the Beauforts were legitimised, but went on to become Duke of Exeter and play a prominent part in the French wars. [Wars of the Roses, p. 27]

    Son of John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster, was created by King Henry IV on 5 Jul 1411 Earl of Dorset, and by King Henry V, Duke of Exeter, which titles became extinct at his death 27 Dec 1426. [Extinct Peerages
    <http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/History/Barons/ExtinctDukes.html]

    d. 1426. Illegitimate son of John of Gaunt and Catherine Swynford, legitimized 1397. He commanded Henry IV of England's army in 1405 against rebellious forces in the north of England and was made chancellor five years later. He resigned in 1412 and the same year was sent to assist Louis, duke of Orleans, against John the Fearless, duke of Burgundy. Thomas defended Harfleur against the French in 1416. In July of the following year he drove off the Scots who, in conjunction with Lollard rebels, were besieging Roxburgh. He was active in Henry V of England's campaigns in France (1418-20). Although one of the infant Henry VI's guardians and a protector of England after Henry V's death in 1422, he played only a minor role in the political life of the 1420s.
