Name: Thomas Reynes
Death: APR 1471
Residence: Marston Moretaine, Bedfordshire
Occupation: Sheriff of Bucks 1462
Change Date: 16 JAN 2013
This Thomas Reynes, who was sheriff of the county in 1462, appears to be identical with the Thomas who died in April 1471. He was succeeded at Clifton Reynes by John Reynes, probably his son, alive in March 1498?9, who left a daughter and heir Elizabeth, the wife of Richard Dicons.
In 1518 Dicons obtained a quitclaim of rights in half the manor from George Pierpoint, son or grandson and heir by another husband of the Margaret who claimed half the manor in the suit of 1440.
The Dicons appear, however, to have renounced their interest in Clifton at an earlier date to Thomas Reynes, clerk, uncle of Elizabeth, (fn. 66) who presented to the church in February 1507?8 and died about the end of 1524. By his will, proved 18 February 1524?5, he left all his household stuff in Marston parsonage to his nieces, the three daughters of his sister.
Thomas was succeeded by his brother Richard, during whose tenure of the manor a renunciation of rights appears to have been made in 1528 by Lawrence Taillard, probably son and heir of Elizabeth wife of William Taillard, and daughter and co-heir of Joan Anstey, the claimant in the suit of 1440. Richard Reynes settled Clifton on his wife Maud, and left three daughters and co-heirs, of whom one married Thomas Lowe, esquire of the body and captain under Henry VIII.
