WALLER, Thomas, of Guildford, Surr.
Available from Boydell and Brewer
Family and Education
Waller may well have been the son of the Thomas Waller who, in November 1405, was one of the Guildford men named as feoffees by Sir John Dallingridge*, and who, as the latter’s executor, obtained custody of the lordships of Rotherfield and Bramber, Sussex, within the next three years. It is just possible that the Guildford MP was himself involved in Sir John’s affairs, but the factor of age makes this rather unlikely. He does not appear to have played any significant part in the running of the borough, although he and his wife owned property there and in the neighbouring manor of Stoke, all of which they sold in 1436 to Thomas Eliot and his feoffees.
