Esquire of the Body to Henry VIII, who in 1537 was granted a lease to the rectory of Melton Mowbray, the lordship of Lewes within that parish, and the lands there called Great Spyney and Little Spyney, which after he "feloniously killed himself," reverted to the King's hands.

By his wife Bennett Waters he was the father of four sons, Anthony, David, Benjamin, and Christopher, and three daughters, Thomasina (wife of Sir Henry Tyrrell), Elizabeth (wife of Anthony Marler), and Avice (wife of Thomas Mildmay).
