Thomas Bardolf, 5th Baron Bardolf

Thomas Bardolf, 5th Baron Bardolf (d. February 19, 1408, from wounds received at the Battle of Bramham Moor) was a baron in the Peerage of England, Lord of Wormegay, Norfolk, of Shelford and Stoke Bardolph in Nottinghamshire, Hallaton (Hallughton), Leicestershire, and others, and was "a person of especial eminence in his time". [ Banks, T.C., "The Dormant & Extinct Baronage of England &c., from the Norman Conquest to the year 1806", London, 1808, vol II: 28] He was an armiger, his Arms being: Azure, three cinquefoils, or.

The eldest son of William 4th Lord Bardolf, Knt., of Wormegay, Thomas Bardolf de Wormegay, 5th Baron Bardolf, was summoned to parliament from September 12, 1390, to August 25, 1404.

He took part with Henry Percy, 1st Earl of Northumberland, and others, in their insurrection against king Henry IV, and being pursued by the Royal Army in great force, was obliged to flee to France. But about three years after returning to England, he resumed his alliance with the said Earl of Northumberland, Thomas, Earl Marshall & Earl of Nottingham, and Richard le Scrope, Archbishop of York only to be defeated again in Yorkshire by John of Lancaster and the Earl of Westmorland. The king ordered the execution of the Earl Marshall & Scrope who were subsequently beheaded at York.

Finally, in 1408, at the Battle of Bramham Moor, they suffered a total defeat, Northumberland was slain, and Lord Bardolf "so much hurt", that he died of his wounds soon after.
William Dugdale states that "Lord Bardolf's remains were quartered, and the quarters disposed of by being placed above the gates of London, York, Lenne(?), and Shrewsbury, while the head was placed upon one of the gates of Lincoln; his widow obtained permission, however, in a short time, to remove and bury them."

His Lordship had married Avicia, daughter of Ralph de Cromwell, 2nd Lord Cromwell, and left two daughters, Anne and Joan, his co-heirs. However, his honours and lands had already been forfeited to the Crown by attainder.

The estates were divided between Thomas Beaufort, 1st Duke of Exeter (the king's half-brother), Sir George de Dunbar, Knight, and the Queen; but the latter's proportion, upon the petition of Sir William Clifford, knt., [ Richardson, Douglas, "Plantagenet Ancestry", Baltimore, Md., 2004, pps:215 & 223, ISBN 0-8063-1750-7 where it is assumed he is the son of Roger de Clifford, 5th Baron Clifford, who was Sheriff of both Westmoreland & Cumberland and Governor of Carlisle Castle. ] and his wife, Anne, and Sir William Phelip and his wife, Joan, to the king, was granted in reversion, after the Queen's decease, to those husband's of the attainted nobleman.

Also, on "27th April 1407. The King to the sheriff of Lincoln. Referring to the late plea in Chancery between Amicia (sic) wife of Thomas, late lord of Bardolf, and George de Dunbarre regarding certain lands in Ruskynton forfeited by Thomas, which had been granted by the King to George, with the manor of Calthorpe, the half of Ancastre (and many others), wherein it was adjudged that Rusynton should be excepted from the grant and restored to her with the rents, etc., from 27th November 1405, drawn by George, - the King orders him to restore the same to Amicia.
