Sir Thomas Arundell
Birth: 1502, England
Death: Feb. 26, 1552
City of London
Greater London, England

English aristocracy. Born the second son of Sir John Arundell of Lanherne and Lady Elizabeth Grey. He served as Sheriff of Dorsetshire from 1531 to 1532, and served Cardinal Wolsey as a gentleman of the Privy Chamber. He was invested as a Knight Bachelor on June 1, 1533 at the coronation of Anne Boleyn. Two years later, he made his fortune when he was appointed to the commission for the suppression of the monasteries. Sir Thomas was then appointed receiver-general of the Duchy of Cornwall. In 1550 he and his brother, John, were commited to the Tower of London, suspected of involvement with the Cornish uprising of 1549 and would face further face charges having to do with the fall of Protector Somerset. Sentenced to hang, what was considered the less degrading death by beheading was eventually allowed. (bio by: Iola)
