    • 1327 Lay Subsidies in Somerset lists Nicholas atte Mede of Wraxall, 100 of Portbury, xii pence. This MAY be the father of Thomas, However, during the 14th century, surnames were not always inherited. Surnames were not commonplace in the 13th and 14th centuries and were often locative (where a person lived, i.e. Thomas Hill (lives on the hill); based on Occupation (Thomas Smith); Descriptive (Thomas Long, Thomas Short, etc.) In England, surnames started to be adopted by the end of the 14th century, so toward the beginning and throughout the middle of the 14th century, one shouldn't assume lineage based on "surname." Considering "atte" means "at the" This Nicholas could simply be living at the Mede of Wraxall.
