Sir Thomas de Musgrave of Harcla Castle, Sheriff of Yorkshire, Governor of Berwick then York, Lord Musgrave (b 1302, d 1376/c1385)

1. Sir Thomas de Musgrave of Hartley Castle, Sheriff of Cumberland (b by 1337, dvp 1384/by 1372)

(2) A contributor (TG, 16.09.04) reports that the History of Parliament biography of Sir Thomas (died 1409 ?) gives his first wife as Mary (d by 08.1380, dau of Alan Strother) rather than Mary Vaux.
