      Thomas Mede was a merchant in Bristol. He was a juror in 1428 and was commissioned to collect taxes in 1429, 1430 and 1436. It is not certain that he was the same person as the Thomas Mede whose will was dated 1454 and was probated in 1455 in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury (PCC). There are a couple of reasons to think he was.The will of Thomas atte Mede says he was the rector of the church of Elizabeth in Mundford, Norfolk. He requested a stone in memory of "Thomas atte Mede, once rector of this church, and Agnes his mother." In the PCC records he is called Thomas Mede of St. Mary Redcliffe, Bristol. At the Bristol end there are references to Sir Thomas Mede. He was not a knight; this was a courtesy title given to a priest. The question remains how a medieval Catholic priest had children. In fact, it was not uncommon for a widower to take holy orders. The more famous example of this in Bristol was William Canynges, who was ordained after the deathof his wife.
