'''Thomas de Audley'''
  
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 was born between 1296 and 1299. In CPR E1V3 p341 his marriage is granted so he was born by 23 Oct 1299, yet in CPR E2V1 p26 he is stated to have died while still a minor so he could not have been born before 7 Jul 1296.
