  • 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]
