'''Thomas de Audley'''
  
His marriage was granted by [[Edward I, King of England|Edward I]] to Hugh le Despencer after his father James had died.
+
He was born as a son of Nicholas de Audley (or Aldithelegh), tenant in chief to [[Edward I, King of England]].  Therefore, when Nicholas died while Thomas, his eldest surviving son and heir, was still a minor, Thomas person and marriage came to the hand of Edward.  On 23 Oct 1299, Edward granted the marriage to Hugh le Despencer "to the use of his daughter".  That grant states that Hugh and Nicholas had been negotiating for just such a marriage before Nicholas died.
  
He married [[Eve de Clavering]].
+
What happened to Thomas, has conflicting sources.  While CPR goes on later to state that Thomas died a minor and unmarried, it also later brings forth [[Eve de Clavering|Eva]] as "late the wife of Thomas de Aldithelegh, tenant in chief".
 +
 
 +
Unless there were two different persons living named Thomas de Aldithelegh, a possibility Rosie Bevan rejects, then it must be that CPR is in error on Thomas dying unmarried.
