Families covered: Lathum of Irlam (Irelam), Lathom of Whiston

Thought by some to have been either the same person as the Thomas Lathom of Lathom who was the legendary 'Sir Oskell de Lathom' or his son, and so possibly unfairly stopped from inheriting Lathom, was the following Thomas. However, CTG suggests that the the line of Irlam "was in all likelihood a branch from Mosborough or Parbold; which last pedigree is defective at the time when the Irlam pedigree commences."
