Bef. 1482, Thomas’ father died leaving Thomas’ brother Henry as heir. Henry had the family property in 1482, but must have died soon after his father and Thomas became heir. [Supporting evidence is the fact that Henry is not named in the Herald’s visitation of 1565.]

He failed to make his appearance and was charged with something similar to "contempt of Court." The penalty of “outlawry” soon followed. Thomas surrendered himself to justice, and for a time was an inmate of Fleet prison.

1504, "Royal Pardon and Revocation of Outlawry for Thomas Hall, lately of Bradford, Co. Wilts, Gentleman, now in the Fleet Prison." (S) Document found in the Hall during repairs.
