Thomas CHAWORTH (Sir Knight)

Born: ABT 1370, Wiverton, Nottinghamshire, England

Died: 17 Feb 1458/1459

Notes: Sheriff of Lincoln. Prepared to throw in his lot with the lollard leader, Sir John Oldcastle, whose plans for a rising in early Jan 1414 were promptly and efficiently quashed by the King. Sympathy for the lollards was strong in Derbyshire, and it is worth noting that another of Oldcastle's leading supporters, the lawyer, Henry Booth, also had estates there. Orders for Chaworth's arrest were issued on 8 Jan, and he once again found himself a captive in the Tower. He was at first kept in chains, but at the beginning of Feb bonds worth 1,000 marks were offered by William Babington and his other friends as security that he would not attempt to escape if his conditions were ameliorated. Throughout this period he and his fellow captives remained under sentence of death, but in May they were pardoned and allowed to go free. It is now impossible to tell how far Sir Thomas shared Oldcastle's heretical beliefs. His later life was given over to works of conventional piety, most notably with regard to the endowment and assistance of Launde priory in Leicestershire, although the evidence of his will shows him to have possessed a large number of devotional works (some of which were in English), including a graile (gradual) manuell and a litel portose (breviary) the whiche the saide Sir Thomas toke with hym alway when he rode, so he may well have continued the lollard practice of placing particular emphasis on private prayer. The inclusion of his distant kinsman, William Booth, Archbishop of York, among the three supervisors of his will and his appointment, in 1423, of the bishops of Durham and Worcester as his trustees would, however, confirm that, in public at least, he eschewed any suspect doctrines. Once released from prison, Sir Thomas understandably made every effort to re-establish himself in King Henry's good graces; and he seized the opportunity offered in 1415 by the latter's invasion of France to prove his loyalty. He indented to serve in the royal army with a personal retinue of eight men-at-arms and 24 archers, and was duly accorded the necessary letters of protection.

Although he never quite managed to recover the position of trust which he had previously enjoyed, Sir Thomas was in a sense able to compensate for this by making a remarkably lucrative second marriage. By his first wife, Nicola, he had only one child, a daughter named Elizabeth, who married John, Lord Scrope of Masham (d.1455) before 1418, and seems to have become her father's favourite. Whereas Nicola brought little in the way of property or advancement to the Chaworths, Sir Thomas's new bride, the daughter of Sir Thomas Aylesbury, added greatly to their territorial possessions. We do not know exactly what Isabel received at the time of her marriage, but her father was extremely rich, and in May 1416 he made his new son-in-law one of his principal trustees. The latter was thus singularly well placed to advance his own interests when Aylesbury died, two years later, and promptly obtained control of the manors of Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire and Abinger in Surrey during the minority of his young brother-in-law, John. The successive deaths within the next five years of both John and his baby son caused a dramatic change in Chaworth's circumstances, for his wife thus became coheir with her sister, Eleanor, of all her late father's property. Her share comprised the manors of Albury, Wilstone and Tiscott in Hertfordshire, Rousham in Oxfordshire, Sells Green in Wiltshire, Bradwell, Broughton and Drayton Beauchamp in Buckinghamshire, Oxhill in Warwickshire, and Dodford, Blatherwycke, Pytchley and Weston in Northamptonshire. She also inherited various tenements in Cripplegate, London. Altogether, these properties were worth a bare minimum of 93 p.a.; and although part of them remained in the hands of Isabel's widowed mother until 1436, the improvement in Chaworth's status and finances was still remarkable. He also kept up a wide and influential range of social connexions. In February 1419 he stood bail for Sir John Pelham (an executor of Henry IV), and a few weeks later he joined with Sir Ralph Shirley in offering recognizances worth 200 marks to Sir Richard Stanhope. His relations with Shirley did not remain cordial for long, since, as one of the heirs of Lord Basset of Drayton, he found himself drawn into an alliance with Humphrey, earl of Stafford, who was determined to secure the entire Basset inheritance for himself. Whereas Chaworth's mother had been prepared to relinquish her title to the Staffords, Shirley clung on grimly to what was legally his, and thus met with the full force of Earl Humphrey's displeasure. Shirley was eventually driven out of the property by force majeur, claiming that his eviction had been effected be the procurement and instance of Sir Thomas Chaworth.10 As we have already seen, another prominent member of Chaworth's circle was Sir John Zouche, who conveyed his Yorkshire manor of Bolton-upon-Dearne to him, in 1422, as a trustee, and later made him a feoffee-to-uses of other property as well. Zouche's daughter, Elizabeth, married Sir Nicholas Bowet, a kinsman of Henry Bowet, Archbishop of York, and on the latter's death, in the following year, Chaworth proceeded to exploit this connexion so that he could obtain custody of the temporalities of the archbishopric until the consecration of the next incumbent. He went on, some time later, to consolidate the relationship by arranging a marriage between his eldest son, William, and Sir Nicholas's daughter. Chaworth's young ward, William Fitzwilliam of Sprotborough in Yorkshire, meanwhile proved a more than suitable husband for his younger daughter (another Elizabeth), to whom he was betrothed while still a minor. An interesting list of Chaworth's other intimates is furnished by an enfeoffment of 1423, whereby he conveyed the bulk of his estates to a new body of trustees. As noted above, he probably chose the bishops of Durham and Worcester in order to demonstrate his return to orthodoxy, but his appointment of Thomas, Lord Roos of Helmsley, and Ralph, Lord Cromwell, provides a clear indication of where his temporal loyalties lay. He acted for a long time as Roos's feoffee-to-uses; and in 1434, some four years after the latter's death, he was permitted to farm the manor of Orston in Nottinghamshire during the minority of Roos's next heir. It was, however, Chaworth's association with Lord Cromwell which proved of particular consequence, since through it he became drawn into Cromwell's longstanding and bitter feud with Sir Henry Pierrepont (his colleague in the Parliament of 1423). Having wrested the Heriz family inheritance from Pierrepont by highly dubious means, Cromwell secured his title, in 1431, by conveying the property to a panel of influential feoffees, including Chaworth and his friend, Sir Richard Vernon. Not surprisingly, then, when violence erupted between Pierrepont and his other enemies, the Foljambes, Chaworth threw his not inconsiderable weight behind the Foljambes, and as head of the second jury at the Derby sessions of oyer and terminer, in 1434, he did everything he could to support their allegations. He even offered bail for Richard Brown of Repton, who stood accused of attempting to procure Thomas Foljambe's acquittal; and in the following year he and Cromwell capitalized upon their position as royal commissioners of inquiry in Nottinghamshire to question Pierrepont's title to the manor of Sneinton. Later, in 1440, Sir Henry tried to recover some of his losses by suing Chaworth and Lord Cromwell's other trustees, but pressure was brought upon him to settle out of court. Chaworth remained close to Cromwell until the latter's death, for the two men acted together, on New Year's Day 1448, as witnesses to an oath made by Richard Willoughby, renouncing his inheritance. In later life he was recruited into the service of Henry, duke of Warwick, who made him and one of his sons joint stewards of his property in Leicestershire and Rutland.

In May 1449 he and his sister-in-law (who had married Sir Humphrey Stafford of Grafton) complained to the King about the damage done by deer from the forest of Rockingham to crops growing on their Northamptonshire estates, and were permitted to enclose the land in question. Sir Thomas was able to consolidate his holdings even further as a result of the death, in about 1457, of John Cressy, whose next heirs were his wife and her sister. In the event, however, he did not enjoy the profits of these new acquisitions for very long, since his own death occurred, shortly after that of his wife, on 10 Feb 1459. The couple were buried together at the priory of Launde, where they had founded a chantry some seven years before.

Although he must have been well over 80 when he died, Chaworth remained active in local government until the very end.

John CHAWORTH (Sir Knight)

Born: ABT 1498, Wiverton, Nottinghamshire, England

Died: 3 Sep 1558, Wiverton, Nottinghamshire, England

Buried: Langar, Nottinghamshire, England

Notes: knighted 1533, at the coronation of Queen Anne Boleyn, and dates his will in "...the fift and sext years of the reignes of our sovraigne lord and lady Philippe and Marie by the grace of God King and Queene of England Spayne, france, both Cicilles Jerlem and Ireland. Defenders of the Faith...". Will proved 1559; Dame Mary, his widow, Sir Gervase Clifton, Knight, and John Manners, Esq., were the executors. Sir John leaves by will "...that my dearly beloved wif Dame Marie Chaworth for that she shall be the more able to mayntayne and kepe a substanciall house at Wyverton after my decease which my will and desire is she shall so do, I give unto her one acre of wood to be had and taken within my wods of Ep'ston and Burton Jorce yerly during her life to be taken for firewode and spent at Wyverton...". He also expresses a wish that an "...honest house be kepte at my house at Wyverton one half yere after my death, so that my household servants resorting thither may have meate and drynke so oft as they com...". Another bequest orders "...500 loodes of stones to be gathered in the fieldes of Bingham and Tithbye and to be lade in the lane at Wyverton...". He also leaves to every parish church in Notts., Derbyshire, and Leicestershire "...having dyvine service wekely...", where he has any land, 6s. 8d., and that quarries of glass, coloured with his arms, shall be set in every one of the churches, that "...the people seeing the same may be the rather moved to pray for me...". Sir John Chaworth and his wife lie buried under a handsome alabaster tomb in the north transept of Langar Church, and by the curious inscription round it, it would appear that husband and wife died in the same month. Glover gives the translation as follows: "Here lyeth Sir John Chaworth . . . who died at Wyverton 3rd Sept. 1558... His 2nd wife Mary daur of Sir Wm Fasten died in the year and month aforesaid, and together with him is here buried, who being joined together in this tomb, I pray may be joined together in Heaven. Thus life gave what death was not able to give". Perhaps this is only to be taken allegorically, as Dame Mary appears to have proved the will in the following year.
