  1. 1.  William Tyrrell was born in in of Gipping, Suffolk, England (son of John Tyrrell, Speaker of the House of Commons and Alice Coggeshall); died on 23 Feb 1462 in Tower Hill, London, England.

    Notes:

    "[William Tyrell] was beheaded on Tower Hill on 23 February 1462, together with Sir Thomas Tuddenham and John Montgomery. 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]

    Notes:

    "[Thomas Tyrell's] only known son at his death -- not, as often thought (and as appears in, for example, the History of Parliament), his brother -- was Walter Tyrell (fl. 1364)." ["Tyrell family," Oxford Dictionary of National Biography]

    Walter married Eleanor Flambard. Eleanor (daughter of Edmund Flambard) died on 29 Mar 1422. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Notes:

    Sheriff of Essex, 1391. Knight of the shire for Essex 1391, January 1397, 1401, 1402, October 1404, 1411, April 1414, 1420, December 1421 and 1422. 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]

Generation: 4

  1. 8.  Thomas Tyrrell was born in in of Heron in East Horndon, Essex, England; died in 1382; was buried in Downham, Essex, England.

    Notes:

    "Whatever the exact descent, it was the junior Thomas, Sir Thomas Tyrell, who established the family securely in Essex. He did so, at least in part, through royal service. In 1351 he was a yeoman of the crown, with a history of service to Queen Philippa and the king's daughter Isabel as well as to Edward III himself. From the early 1360s, however, his status suddenly rose, which could be linked (if the above argument is correct) with his acquisition of his nephew's land. In January 1362 he was made steward of the household and lands of the king's daughter Isabel. In 1365 he was knight of the shire for Essex, the first of five occasions on which he was to represent the county. By 1367 he was a knight. He died in 1382 and was buried at Downham, Essex, where he held a manor. His wife, Alice, survived him." ["Tyrell family," Oxford Dictionary of National Biography]

    Notes:

    One of the most brilliant military leaders of the late Middle Ages. A large portrait of him on horseback, by Paolo Uccello, adorns the northern wall of the Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence, Italy, the structure better known as the Duomo.

    Encyclopedia Britannica:

    The son of a tanner, Hawkwood chose a soldier's career, serving in the French wars of Edward III, who probably bestowed a knighthood on him. After the Treaty of Brétigny temporarily ended Anglo-French hostilities (1360), Hawkwood became the leader of a free company, going to Italy three years later to join the English band known as the White Company in the service of Pisa. He was elected captain general in January 1364. Using the English longbow and tactics developed by the English in France, he became famous for the rapidity of his movements, made possible by lighter armour and equipment, for his handling of infantry, and for the discipline of his troops.

    Between 1372 and 1378 he alternately served the pope and the duke of Milan, whose illegitimate daughter he married in 1377. The following year he became captain general of Florence, fighting for other clients when his services were not needed by the Florentine republic.

    In 1382 he sold lands given him by the pope in the Romagna (near Ravenna) and bought estates in the vicinity of Florence; nine years later he became an honorary Florentine citizen. In 1394, in preparation to return to England to spend his last years, he sold his Italian properties but died before his plan could be carried out.
