· This Thomas, “of Devon”, does not appear in the records of the time. There are many “Thomas son of Richard de …” possibilities. There is a “Thomas fitz Richard” of Essex, and one of Ireland contemporary. A possible scenario is that this Thomas married a prominent heiress in Essex or Irleand, or some other place, which does not allow us to identify him without additional information.
