He was Dean of Chester Cathedral. When civil war broke out in England, Thomas, who was rector at Northenden, rode immediately to the home of Robert Tatton and joined a small band holding there against Cromwell's forces. They were not well armed and were soon overtaken. Thomas seems to have been taken prisoner at this time. All his property and income were sequestered. In 1660 he petitioned Parliament to regain his property and living. A month later, Charles II being restored to the throne reinstated Thomas and made him a canon of Chester. The following December he was created a Doctor of Divinity and was afterward identified as 'Thomas Mallory the Devine.'
