    Notes:

    Sir Thomas St Leger KB (c. 1440 executed 8 November 1483) was the second son of Sir John St Leger (d.1441) of Ulcombe, Kent, and his wife, Margery Donnet. He was also the second husband of Anne of York (10 August 1439 14 January 1476), daughter of Richard Plantagenet, 3rd Duke of York (by his wife Cecily Neville) and thus she was an elder sister of Kings Edward IV (1461-1483) and Richard III (1483-1485). His younger brother, Sir James St Leger of Annery in Devon, married Anne Butler, daughter of Thomas Butler, 7th Earl of Ormond, and was therefore an uncle to Thomas Boleyn, 1st Earl of Wiltshire.

    Marriage[edit]

    Heraldic glass in the Rutland Chapel, St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, erected in 1849 by Charles Manners, 6th Duke of Rutland. It shows far left the arms of Anne of York, Duchess of Exeter (1439-1476) impaled by the arms of her 1st husband Henry Holland, 3rd Duke of Exeter. To the right of the last are her arms impaled by the arms of her 2nd husband Sir Thomas St. Leger (c.1440-1483), KG. The rightmost window shows top: the arms of Anne's daughter Anne St Leger impaled by the arms of her husband George Manners, 11th Baron de Ros (c.1470-1513). Below are the arms of his son Thomas Manners, 1st Earl of Rutland (c.1492-1543) impaling the arms of his 2nd wife Eleanor Paston
    Thomas was most likely the lover of Anne of York, before their marriage in c. 1474. She had been married at the age of eight to Henry Holland, 3rd Duke of Exeter, in 1447. Anne and Exeter had had one daughter, named Anne, who had been born in c. 1455. The marriage was unhappy and Exeter and his wife mostly lived apart. Exeter was also a loyal Lancastrian while his wife was a Yorkist, and Exeter fought against Richard, 3rd Duke of York, at the Battle of Wakefield where Anne's father and her brother, Edmund, Earl of Rutland, died in battle. Anne and Exeter eventually separated. Thomas fought against Exeter at the Battle of Barnet, where Exeter was badly wounded and left for dead, but survived. Exeter was later imprisoned, and Anne divorced him in 1472. Exeter was also on Edward's expedition with Thomas St Leger to France in 1475. On the return voyage he fell overboard and drowned. Some say he was in fact thrown overboard at the King's command. St Leger's stepdaughter, Anne Holland, died some time around 1474, leaving her inherited Exeter estates behind.

    Anne of York died giving birth in 1476 to her and Thomas's only child, another girl named Anne. Following his wifes death, St. Leger remained on good terms with his brother-in-law, Edward IV, and served as the King's Controller of the Mint. In 1481, he was granted a licence to found a perpetual chantry of two chaplains at the Chapel of St. George in memory of his wife. He never remarried. In 1483, by Act of Parliament, Anne St. Leger was declared heiress to the entire Exeter estate, except for a portion which was given to the queen's son Richard Grey. This act, by which the lands of the Exeter dukedom fell into the hands of the last duke's stepdaughter and his daughter's brother-in-law, along with a number of similar acts, is thought to be a cause of difficulty in maintaining noble support for the reign of Edward IV.[3]

    Rebellion and death[edit]
    Thomas's brother-in-law, Edward IV, whom he had served faithfully, died suddenly on 9 April 1483, leaving behind a twelve-year-old son, Edward V, who was by marriage Thomas's nephew. However, Richard III ascended the throne in July 1483. Thomas St. Leger attended the new kings coronation and was given cloth of silver and velvet for the occasion, but he was soon deprived of his positions of Master of Harthounds and Controller of the Mint. His daughter Anne was ordered to be handed over to Henry Stafford, 2nd Duke of Buckingham. It has been suggested that Buckingham had the heiress in mind as a bride for his own eldest son Edward. This never came to pass, for both St. Leger and Buckingham ended up in rebellion against the new king. St Leger had been unshakably faithful to Edward IV and, like many of the other rebels of the rebellion of 1483, was undoubtedly distressed at Edward V having disappeared from sight after having been deprived of his crown.

    When the rebellion floundered, St. Leger continued the fight in Exeter, but was captured. He was executed on 13 November 1483, at Exeter Castle, despite the offer of large sums of money on his behalf. He had been executed with Sir John Rame. St. Leger, described by the Crowland Chronicler as a most noble knight, received a private burial. They are not buried in Rutland Chapel as most believe.[citation needed]

    His daughter Anne St Leger (14 January 1476 21 April 1526) eventually married George Manners, 11th Baron de Ros. Their son was Thomas Manners, 1st Earl of Rutland, and their daughter, Lady Eleanor Manners (1505 16 September 1548) married John Bourchier, 2nd Earl of Bath, and had descendants. Lady Anne St. Leger and her husband George are both buried in the private Rutland Chapel in Windsor Castle.

He was one of the leading rebels included in Lord Scrope's indictment at Great Torrington, November 1483,[9] Scrope having been given a commission by King Richard III to hold a sessions in Devon to examine the loyalty of the gentlemen of Devon to the crown, as opposed to his rival the Earl of Richmond, the future King Henry VII. At this court many of the gentry of Devon were indicted of high treason, many fled to Brittany to join the Earl, but two were captured and beheaded in Exeter, namely Thomas St Leger and Sir John Kame.[10] He married (secondly?)

    Biography

    Sir John Saint Leger [1][2]was the second son of Sir Arnold St Leger and Jeanne of Luxembourg. He was born between 1400 and 1404 in Ulcombe, County of Kent, England. The St. Leger family traced its roots back to Robertus De Vilapari Sancto Leodegario (11th Century), apparently a relation of Robert, Duke of Normandy, the father of King William I, the Conqueror. Saint Leger is a town now in the French departement of Yvelines, west of Paris. Robert de St. Leger is said to have fought with William at the Battle of Hastings (1066) and to have already been possessor of several key manors and fiefs in Sussex and Kent before that event. Between the 11th and 15th Centuries, the family had gone through many marriages and inheritances as all major British noble families did. By the mid-1200s, the St. Legers were known as "Lords of Ulcombe," Kent, which became their primary manorial domain. They allied with the powerful de Clare and Marshal families during this period and became one of the leading aristocratic families on England's strategically-important south east coast.[3]

    Little is known of Sir John's early life but no doubt he served as a knight in Guyenne and France as he grew up during the Hundred Years War. He was too young to have fought at the Battle of Agincourt (1415) and, as a second son, he depended more on a rich marriage or an inheritance from his mother, Jeanne de Luxembourg.

    In 1429, John married Margery Donnett (b. 1408), heir of the late (d.1409) James Donnett of Sileham (aka Sylham Court), an old local gentry family. As her late father's sole heir, Margery's dowry was considerable and included the manors of Rainham (Kent), Syleham (Suffolk), Pen-Court (Kent), Wildemere and others in Kent and other parts of England. She was the perfect match for the 2nd son of a prominent aristocratic family. They had 10 children in just 13 years, 5 boys and 5 girls.[4]
