- THOMAS DEL FELD (John, Thomas, Roger), b. Sowerby, England, 1330; m. Annabelle ------. He was named in the rolls in 1364 and was elected this year to supervise the "agistment and pannage." Constable of Sowerby in 1365, and greave there in 1370. He hired Sowerby mill in 1380 with Thomas de Helilee, and was a special juror in 1384. In 1370 he took a piece of land of Thomas Wade, in "Dedewyferode," and I think later went to Bradford.
The name of Thomas del Feld occurs frequently in the Wakefield rolls between 1348 and 1391, without the addition of senior or junior, so that it is impossible to say which one is referred to in these entries. Both senior and junior are mentioned in 1384, after which date there is but one entry, in 1391, when the name is simply Thomas del Feld. Probably both senior and junior died about this time. Others of the family mentioned in the lifetime of the two Thomases who cannot be placed with certainty, are Elena del Feld, in 1329 and in 1333, and Margaret, who paid heriot in 1357 on a cottage and land in Sowerby, "after the death of John Tomson, her uncle." She is called daughter of Thomas del Feld, but of which I am unable to state. He d. about 1391. Res. Sowerby and Bradford, England.
