John de Vere, 12th Earl of Oxford, and his eldest son and heir, Aubrey, were beheaded on 26 February and 20 February, respectively, after the discovery of an alleged plot to murder Edward IV. No records of the trials of the alleged conspirators have survived to shed light on what part, if any, [James] Tyrrell's father played in the alleged conspiracy. He was not attainted, and his eldest son and heir's wardship and the custody of his lands were granted to Cecily Neville, Duchess of York, who sold them to William Tyrrell's widow in March 1463 for £50."

    Treasurer of the Household 24 May 1431 to his death.

    From "Tyrell family," Oxford Dictionary of National Biography:

    John Tyrell's abilities, and perhaps some legal training, are reflected in the links which he forged, from the outset of his career, with the leading landowners in Essex. He acted as feoffee of Anne of Woodstock, the heir of Thomas, duke of Gloucester, and her husband, William Bourchier, and also of Humphrey, duke of Gloucester (under whom he had served in France in 1415). It was probably Gloucester who secured for him the office of steward of Clare and Thaxted during the minority of Richard, duke of York, in 1427 -- a connection that was to lead to service to York himself, culminating in Tyrell's appointment as the duke's receiver-general. In the same year he was appointed chief steward of the duchy of Lancaster north of the Trent. In 1431 he was made treasurer of the king's household, a post he was to hold until his death, and knighted. He sat in parliament twelve times between 1411 and 1437, and was chosen speaker on three occasions, the last time being in 1437, when he had to resign because of ill health on 19 March; he died a fortnight later on 2 April.

    John Tyrell's landed wealth matched his national prominence. In 1412 he was said to be in possession only of Broomfield (his wife's dower from her first marriage) and Heron, Essex, which, if true, would mean that he had not yet inherited all his grandfather's lands, although he was later to do so. His father's Hampshire land had been settled on his widow, Eleanor, daughter and heir of Edmund Flambard of Shepreth, Cambridgeshire, and John had to wait until her death in 1422 to obtain possession. John himself made two good marriages. The first, to Alice, daughter and coheir of William Coggeshall, brought him half the Coggeshall lands at the death of William in 1426. Alice herself had died in 1422 and John had married Katherine, daughter and coheir of William Burgate of Burgate, Suffolk, and widow of Robert Stonham and John Spenser. In 1436 John's annual income was reckoned at £396, which made him the wealthiest non-aristocrat in the county.

    John married Alice Coggeshall before 1411. Alice (daughter of William Coggeshall and Antiocha Hawkwood) died in 1422. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

Justice of the Peace for Essex from 1401-7, 1417–19 and 1422-26. In 1381 he was one of the commissioners appointed to suppress the Peasants' Revolt.

    "[Sir John Hawkwood] also had a daughter, Antiocha or Mary, who by March 1379 was married to Sir William Coggeshall, apparently the cousin of Sir Thomas, afterwards of Codham Hall, Essex, then in Hawkwood's service in Italy and residing in Milan." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, article about Sir John Hawkwood.]

    "In the summer of 1404 came his opportunity to prove his allegiance to Henry IV by the zeal with which he helped suppress disaffection and incipient rebellion in Essex fomented by the plots of Maud, dowager countess of Oxford, and the heads of certain religious houses, who had spread rumours that Richard II was still alive. Coggeshall acted swiftly in arresting conspirators and holding inquiries into their treasons. He was re-appointed sheriff later in the year, and for his good service he was subsequently exonerated from payment of half of the arrears of £200 owing on his account." [History of Parliament]

    William married Antiocha Hawkwood before Mar 1379 in Milan, Lombardy, Italy. Antiocha (daughter of John Hawkwood and (Unknown first wife of John Hawkwood)) was born before 1361; died before Jun 1388. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: of Old Filongley, Warwickshire, England


    Knight of the shire for Warwickshire, Jan 1390. From the History of Parliament:

    Henry was probably a member of the Warwickshire family which had been settled at Old Filongley since before 1202; he was called 'of Warwickshire' when he acted as a surety in Chancery in 1393. He was also related to the Glympton or Clinton family of Hertfordshire; in 1396 he acted as a feoffee for Henry Glympton in lands at Little Hadham and Stortford, of which as Glympton's kinsman he was himself heir. The inheritance was made subject to his founding a chantry, and he appears to have relinquished his interest within ten years.

    It seems likely that Filongley entered the service of Henry of Bolingbroke some time before Henry's accession to the throne; perhaps he held a minor office at Kenilworth castle, only a few miles from Warwick. Certainly, in November 1399, after Henry had become King, he granted him an annuity of £10 charged on the royal revenues from Warwickshire, as his fee as serjeant of the royal scullery. It was in connexion with his office that in 1400 Filongley received a writ of aid to buy victuals for the Household, and in 1404 he was appointed to make an investigation into the disappearance of tables, trestles and benches from the Tower of London and elsewhere. In January 1413 he was pardoned for the loss of silver dishes and other utensils, as well as for arrears in his accounts. Two years earlier he had been granted a corrody at Llanthony priory near Gloucester. His annuity was confirmed by Henry V, and he was probably still holding his post in the Household in May 1415 when, along with other 'King's esquires', he contracted to serve on Henry's first French campaign. However, in March 1422 when he was again required to go to France in a military capacity, he enlisted another squire as a substitute. Henry VI's council renewed Filongley's annuity that December, and he was still alive nine years later, when he claimed that the then sheriff of Warwickshire (Nicholas Ruggeley) owed him £5 towards the same.
