    Notes 
    • Richardson's Royal Ancestry (citation details below), at Tyrwhit 18, gives the date of their marriage as "before 14 May 1509". But he also gives the date of their son Robert's birth (in two places, Lancaster 12.ii and Stafford 12) as "before 1504". Unless their son Robert was born several years before their marriage, which is vanishingly unlikely, surely the date of the marriage of Robert Tyrwhit and Maud Tailboys should be anchored as "before 1504", not "before 14 May 1509".

  • Notes 
    • Sheriff of Lincolnshire 1519-20, 1523-4, 1540-1.

      Entertained Henry VIII and his court in Kettleby on 8 and 9 Oct 1541. According to Notices and Remains of the Family of Tyrwhitt (citation details below), Tyrwhit "hanged the trees on the way from Kettleby to Brigg with carcases of sheep and beasts (oxen), to show that he could feed all comers."

      He is said by some to have been a vice-admiral of England under Henry VIII, but as Robert Philip Tyrwhitt (citation details below) points out, he is more likely to have been one of many titular "vice-admirals" for a piece of his nearby Lincolnshire coast, a distinction shared by many armigerous men whose seats adjoined important pieces of coast.
