Notes for Sir Thomas HOO KG 1st Baron Hoo and Hastings
Thomas Hoo, 1st Baron Hoo and Hastings KG (ca. 1396-1455) was a Knight of the Garter and English courtier.

Thomas was the son of Sir Thomas Hoo (ca. 1370 – Luton Hoo, Bedfordshire, 23 August 1420) and wife (m. 1395) Eleanor de Felton (Litcham, Norfolk, 1378 – 8 August 1400). He succeeded his father in 1420, inheriting the family's ancestral home of Luton Hoo in Bedfordshire as well as Mulbarton, Norfolk and other estates. He fought for Henry VI of England in France, and for his services was made, first Keeper of the Seals, then Chancellor of France. In 1439, he was granted the castle, lordship and honour of Hastings, and in 1445 elected Knight of the Garter. Two years later he was created Baron of Hoo and Hastings.

Lord Hoo was twice married. Before 1 July 1428, Hoo married Elizabeth Wychingham, the daughter of Nicholas Wychingham of Witchingham, Norfolk.[1] A marriage settlement is dated 1 July 1428.[citation needed] By her he had one daughter, Anne, who married Sir Geoffrey Boleyn, mercer and Lord Mayor of London.[1] Lord Hoo married, secondly, before 1445, Eleanor Welles, daughter of Lionel de Welles, 6th Baron Welles, by whom he had three daughters, Anne (wife of Roger Copley, and secondly of William Greystoke), Eleanor (wife of James Carew of Beddington) and Elizabeth (wife of Thomas Masingbeard, and secondly Sir John Devenish).[2]

Lord Hoo died 13 February 1454/5. The barony of Hoo and Hastings become extinct at his death, and his properties passed to his four daughters and his half-brother, Sir Thomas Hoo, born 1416 to his father's second wife, Elizabeth de Etchyngham. The brothers are interred together in the Dacre Tomb at Herstmonceux All Saints Church in Sussex.
