Toby TRESHAM

Died: BEF 1640

Notes: Of the Brand in the parish of Geddington. Died before 1640, since his wife Mary was a widow when mentioned in her fathers will, dated 11 March 1640. A descendant of this marriage, Hans van Felius, told me that son Edward is not mentioned in his grandfathers will, but his brother Thomas is, together with a third child, a daughter Mary. After Edward Duncombe's death a conflict arose between the heirs, and it was only ended in the 16 sixties. At that time Thomas Tresham was dead too, without leaving any heirs. Only Mary Tresham survived, she was living in London at that time. It seems she was denied the money promised to her in her grandfathers will of 1640 (a sum of 300 pounds).

Thomas TRESHAM (Sir)

Born: Sep 1543

Died: 11 Sep 1605

Notes: a ward of Sir Robert Throckmorton, Thomas Tresham of Rushton Hall, succeeded his grandfather to a very large fortune in 1559. He marrried Muriel, daughter of his guardian. Knighted 1575. The Treshams were recusants and Sir Thomas was more than once imprisoned for his faith. In Apr 1582, he was released from the Fleet after twenty months of close confinement there and put under house arrest in a house in the parish of Hoxton, just outside London, one right next to a more comfortable house that Tresham himself owned. He entered into a bond of 2000 not to go out of the house that was his prison, but his wife could visit him there. During at least part of this time, Lady Thresham lived in Tuthill Street in Westminster. On 27 Aug 1584, the authorities raided Sir Thomass house in Hoxton. Present at the time were Tresham, his wife, his daughters Frances, Catherine, and Elizabeth, his son Lewis, and a number of servants. The persecution continued. Tresham was still confined to Hoxton when, on 21 Mar 1590, Muriel wrote to Lord Burghley asking that he might be moved to Banbury, nearer to Rushton, for his health.
