Sir Thomas Giffard, Knt., son of Sir John Giffard, Knt. and Lucy de Morteyn, was born about 1345.1 He died at Twyford, Buckinghamshire, England, 25 September 1394.1

Thomas married (1) Elizabeth de Missenden about 1361;1 he married (2) Margery (…) before 4 January 1367/68;1 he married (3) Sybil (…) before 6 July 1383. The ancestry of all three wives is unknown (or not traced here).1

From an inquisition taken at Oxford, 23 Dec., 34 Edward III (1360), it appears that Thomas Giffard had an elder brother, John, who was living at that date, but who must have died s.p. before 11 March 42 Edward III (1367/8), as Thomas Giffard, aged twenty-five years and more, was then found to be the heir of his father. On 23 Dec 1360 Thomas' father, John settled upon himself and his wife Lucy, for the term of their lives, his manors of Somerton and Feringford, in Oxfordshire, with 30s. rent in Cogges, Oxfordshire, with remainder to their son Thomas and his issue, and the rent to Thomas and Elizabeth de Missenden and their issue, which otherwise ought to have reverted to John, eldest son of the said John. On 22 Aug 1374, Sir Thomas Giffard with his wife Margery, enfeoffed Nicholas Twyford of London, goldsmith, with a moiety of the manor of Ixning, co. Suffolk.2

Sons John, Thomas, and William were of the second or third wife, and all died s.p.3
