From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sir Thomas Englefield (also known as Inglefield[1]) (c.1455[1] – April 3, 1514) was Speaker of England's House of Commons from 1496 to 1497 and again in 1509. A Knight of the Bath, he was probably born in Englefield in Berkshire around 1455. His family were certainly Lords of the Manor there for many generations. However, he also held land on the Welsh border, notably in Worcestershire where he became a magistrate (JP) and High Sheriff.

Sir Thomas was the grandfather of the Catholic politician, Sir Francis Englefield.
