    About Thomas Mede

    According to William Barrett in "History and antiquities of the city of Bristol", Thomas Mede of Wraxall is the descendant (probably great grandson) of Nicholas atte Mede (born about 1305), who was assessed for taxes in Somerset in 1327/28. Sir Thomas Mede was his son.

    Thomas Mede (Thomas atte, Thomas atte) was born Abt. 1390 in Fayland, Wraxall, Somerset, and died 1455 in St.Mary Redcliffe, Bristol.

    Thomas Mede was a merchant in Bristol. He was a juror in 1428 and was commissioned to collect taxes in 1429, 1430 and 1436. It is not certain that he was the same person as the Thomas Mede whose will was dated 1454 and was probated in 1455 in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury (PCC).
    There are a couple of reasons to think he was.

    The will of Thomas atte Mede says he was the rector of the church of Elizabeth in Mundford, Norfolk. He requested a stone in memory of "Thomas atte Mede, once rector of this church, and Agnes his mother." In the PCC records he is called Thomas Mede of St. Mary Redcliffe, Bristol. At the Bristol end there are references to Sir Thomas Mede. He was not a knight; this was a courtesy title given to a priest. The question remains how a medieval Catholic priest had children.

    In fact, it was not uncommon for a widower to take holy orders. The more famous example of this in Bristol was William Canynges, who was ordained after the deathof his wife.

    Children of Thomas Mede are:
    + 4 i. Thomas Mede, born Abt. 1410; died Abt. 1457 in St.Mary Redcliffe, Bristol.
