      Biography

      b. by 1504, 1st s. of Sir Henry Wyatt of Allington Castle by Anne, daughter of John Skinner of Reigate, Surrey.

      Education: St. John’s, Camb. BA 1518, MA 1520.

      married by 1521, Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Brooke, 8th Lord Cobham, 1s. Sir Thomas II; 2s. illegit. by Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Edward Darrell of Littlecote, Wilts.; 1 daughter (?illegit.). Knghted. ?28 Mar. 1535. suc. father 10 Nov. 1536.[1]

      Esquire of the body by 1524; clerk of the King’s jewels 21 Oct. 1524; marshal, Calais by Sept. 1529-24 Nov. 1530; sewer extraordinary by 1533; sheriff, Kent 1536-7; ambassador to the Emperor 1537-40; Councillor by 1540-d.; commr. sewers, Kent 1540; steward, manor of Maidstone, Kent Mar. 1542.[2]

      Lady Elizabeth was first married to Sir Edward WARNER. At twelve years of age Thomas was admitted of St. John's College, Cambridge. He graduated there B.A. in 1518, and M.A. in 1520. As a boy he had made the acquaintance of Anne Boleyn, and long after the date of his marriage Wyatt was regarded as her lover. [Anne Boleyn had begun an affair with Henry Percy. Cardinal Wolsey put a stop to the romance, which could be why Anne engendered such a hatred of him later in life. The romance between Anne and Percy ended in 1522 and the King didn't notice Anne until 1526. Somewhere in this time, Anne also had a relationship of some sort with the poet Sir Thomas Wyatt. Wyatt was married in 1520, so the timing of the supposed affair is uncertain. Wyatt was separated from his wife, but there could be little suggestion of his eventual marriage to Anne. Theirs appears to be more of a courtly love. However, on May 2, 1536, Queen Anne was arrested at Greenwich and was informed of the charges against her: adultery, incest and plotting to murder the King. There were several more arrests. Sir Francis Weston and William Brereton were charged with adultery with the Queen. Sir Thomas Wyatt was also arrested, but later released.] Sir Thomas d. 1542 at Sherborne in Dorset; buried 11 October 1542 in the great church of Sherborne.
