Birth: May 22, 1367
Lincolnshire, England
Death: Sep. 22, 1399
Veneto, Italy

Named 1st Duke of Norfolk, Baron Mowbray and Baron Segrave when his elder brother John died in Feb. 1382; about the same time Richard II created him Earl of Nottingham, a title held by his dead brother, & made him marshal of England for life.lst married Elizabeth Le Strange dau. of John le Strange 4th Lord Strange (of Blackmere). 2nd marriage to Elizabeth Fitzalan dau. of Richard 11th Earl of Arundel and Elizabeth de B by whom he fathered Lady Margaret (Howard), Thomas 2nd Duke, John de Mowbray and Lady Isabel Mowbray. Thomas was vested as a Knight of the Garter in 1383.
He was a favorite with King for awhile. Later he was present when Gloucester was arrested at Pleshey, and Froissart says that he, (Nottingham or Mowbray) actually beheaded Arundel himself. (his brother-in-law). Gloucester was entrusted to his keeping at Calais, and in September 1397 he reported that his prisoner was dead. The duke had been murdered, and Nottingham was probably responsible, although the evidence against him is not conclusive. As a reward he received most of Arundel's lands in Surrey and Sussex, and was created duke of Norfolk. In a dispute for loyalties, a duel was planned but King stopped by bannishing men. Mowbray (or Nottingham) got to keep his estates but had to leave country. He lived in Paris until treaty was signed between ENG & France. He died in Venice, Italy where he was buried at St George's Abbey.
