It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

It is generally accepted that William was a first cousin of Sir John Wingfield (d. 1361) of Wingfield and of Sir John's brother, Thomas (d. 1378) of Letheringham.
William's own entry into the Prince Edward's retinue was facilitated by his cousin John. He saw military action under the prince's banner at the siege of Calais in 1347, and in Jun 1355 he delivered 100 marks to Sir Baldwin Botetourt as a gift made by the prince at Sir John Wingfield's suggestion. William took part in the sea fight with the Spanish fleet off Winchelsea in 1356, so he cannot have been at Poitiers with the prince's army. He had served in Edward III's army in France in the winter of 1359-60.
After the death of his cousin, William left Prince Edward's company to become a favoured retainer of Thomas de Vere, 8th Earl of Oxford. In Dec 1364 De Vere obtained a royal licence to grant to his esquire for life the manors of Langley and Bradley in Berkshire, and he subsequently also gave him and his first wife a joint life estate in the manors of Market Overton and Paston in Northamptonshire.  It was while in Earl Thomas's service that Wingfield was made a knight, and he followed him across to France in the duke of Lancaster's army in 1369, there to take part in the engagement ‘a le Hille vers Harreflete’ (Harfleur). In Dec 1371, after Thomas de Vere's death, the widowed Countess Maud, feeling too weak to travel, named Sir William as one of her attorneys to sue in Chancery for her dower lands.
Wingfield was returned to his first Parliament in 1376 in the company of Sir Richard Waldegrave. In this Parliament, known at the time as the Good Parliament, Sir William played a prominent part in the Commons’ attack on ministerial corruption, by providing evidence for the impeachment of John, Lord Neville of Raby. His sympathies may have been determined by his early connexion with the Black Prince, who seems to have supported the stand taken by the shire knights; certainly he had maintained a close association with some of the prince's retainers. But a more immediate influence on Wingfield's stance in the Parliament was that of Michael, Lord de la Pole, the husband of Catherine, daughter and heiress of his cousin, Sir John Wingfield. One of the charges brought against Neville was that he had purchased tallies at a discount from Reynold Love, a London merchant, and had then secured full allowance on them at the Exchequer. Love, on being examined in Parliament, said that he had given the tallies to Neville in part payment for wool and that their full nominal value had been deducted from his debts, at which point De la Pole and Wingfield came forward with the assertion that, only the day before, Love had admitted in their presence the truth of the Commons’ allegations. Their testimony forced the merchant to retract his earlier statement and so added to the weight of evidence against Neville.
In 1381 Wingfield held Thrandeston of Edmund de Paston (Paston Letters). In Feb 1382, while attending the second session of the Parliament of 1381, he and John of Gaunt's retainer, Sir Henry Green, shared a grant from the duke of the farm of the manor of Willisham (Suffolk), rent-free for the duration of a minority. As there is no other evidence to connect Wingfield with Lancaster in a personal way, it may be the case that this favour marks an attempt by the duke to attach the shire knight to his interests of the moment, for he needed support in the Commons for his Castilian venture.
Well-respected in the community of East Anglia, Wingfield was constantly in demand as a trustee of estates and an executor of wills. In the 1360s he had been a feoffee-to-uses of the important Bures estates inherited by Sir Richard Waldegrave's stepdaughter, Alice; the early 1370s saw him taking on the trusteeship of those of John, Lord Bourchier, as such exercising Bourchier's rights of presentation to the hospital of St. Giles at Little Maldon (Essex); and in 1375 he had served as executor of the will of the Norfolk landowner, Sir Ralph Shelton the elder. Along with Waldegrave, he became in 1377 a custodian of yearly rents amounting to £300 from manors in Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire, in this instance on behalf of Waldegrave's kinsman, Sir John Burgh. More significantly, he had attracted the attention of William Ufford, earl of Suffolk (d. 1382), who thought so highly of him as to leave him in his will, made in Jun 1381, an ‘enpension’ of £20 a year for life as well as a covered goblet to keep in his memory. In later years Wingfield served as a feoffee of the estates of the earl's kinsman, Sir Robert Ufford. Then, in 1384-5, he was involved in property transactions on behalf of John Bacon, the King's secretary, a connexion which had probably come about through the intervention of his kinsman by marriage, Michael, Lord de la Pole, who was then chancellor and shortly to be created earl of Suffolk. Wingfield's connexion with De la Pole was particularly close: Lord Michael had headed the list of his own feoffees as named in 1377. Among the rest were Sir Nicholas Gernoun, another of the earl of Oxford's retainers, who was later (in 1384) to bequeath to him a sparver and a gold ring, and his cousin, Thomas Wingfield of Letheringham, for whom he acted both as a trustee of estates and as an executor. Naturally, other of Sir William's kinsmen called on his services, too, including Thomas Wingfield's son and heir, Sir John, and his stepson, Sir Robert Carbonel.
The fortunes of the De la Pole family had suffered a serious rebuff in 1388, and the earl of Suffolk had died in exile in the following year. But Wingfield continued to offer support to the earl's son, Sir Michael de la Pole, the new owner of the main Wingfield estates: he witnessed deeds on Sir Michael's behalf in 1392 and 1397; and in the meantime he became a feoffee of his lands and, in Oct 1396, stood as godfather at the baptism of his second son, William (who was eventually to be the 4th earl of Suffolk).
Wingfield died on 25 May 1398 and was buried in the chancel of Dennington church, where traces of his monument yet survive. He was succeeded by his son, another William, for whom about two years earlier he had arranged an important marriage, to Catherine, the younger daughter and coheir of John Hadley, a prominent merchant and financier of London. In 1417 the younger William served in France at Agincourt under the earl of Suffolk (his father's godson). There, the Duc Charles D'Orleans was, Suffolk's old friend, was captured. When, in the following year, he died childless, his commander, as his nearest male kinsman, Suffolk inherited his estates.

Margaret WINGFIELD
Born: ABT 1514
Notes: her husband, Francis Sone (Soone), of Wantisden, was born by 1523, first son of John Sone of Wantisden. Educ. G. Inn, adm. 1537. Married first Alice, dau. of Sir John Spelman of Narborough, Norf.; by whom he had two sons and three daughters. Suc. family 1552. In May 1544 Francis Sone and his father acquired the manor, rectory and advowson of Wantisden. On his father's death he inherited considerable property in Suffolk, including the manors of Boville and Peche in Alderton and of Campsea and Chillesford, some of which he sold in Feb 1553 to Robert Vesey. In the autumn of that year he levied a fine against Francis Harman for houses and pasture in east Suffolk, and three years later he acquired lands in Sudbury from Roger Warren, perhaps the brother-in-law mentioned in his will. Sone's return for Orford on three occasions may have reflected the influence of the Willoughbys or Wingfields, but as a landowner in the neighbourhood with some legal training he could well have been the town's own choice. He was brother-in-law to George Jerningham, Member for Orford and Dunwich under Mary. The Protestant leanings expressed in his will may explain his absence from most of the Marian Parliaments and his belated appointment to the Suffolk bench.

Died: 22 Jul 1525, Toledo, Spain
Buried: St. John de Pois, Toledo, Spain
Notes: Knight of the Garter. Ambassador to Spain. Lord Deputy of Calais. Although no single family predominated in Huntingdonshire, at least four of the knights Nicholas Harvey, William Lawrence, Tyrwhitt and Wingfield, were connected with Sir Richard Wingfield of Kimbolton, whose descendants later in the century were to share the representation with the Cromwells of Hinchingbroke and the Tyrwhitts of Leighton Bromswold. His second wife, Bridget was the dau. of Sir John Wiltshire, Comptroller of Calais, and was lady of the bedchamber to Queen Anne Boleyn.

Jane WINGFIELD
Born: ABT 1525
Notes: Thomas Worlich first emerges clearly in the 1540s. In Nov 1541 he was granted a 21-year lease of Alconbury rectory and it was as of Alconbury that in 1546 he was assessed for subsidy at 26s.8d. on goods valued at £20. His origin and early life are matter for speculation. It is reasonable to assume that he belonged to the family of which one branch was settled at Everton and Potton, near Sandy in Bedfordshire, and another at Wickhambrook, Suffolk. If, as one visitation has it, his daughter Honor married Charles Worlich of the Suffolk line he may be thought to have sprung from the other, yet it could have been at Wickhambrook that he first met Stephen Gardiner, who came from nearby Bury St. Edmunds and whose protégé George Eden was to become a land-holder at Wickhambrook. Worlich's other principal connexion, with the Wingfields of Kimbolton, may have been of independent origin. The marriage which sealed it could well have coincided with his settlement at Alconbury, for Jane Wingfield was probably born about the time her father died in 1525 and may have given birth to her first son about 1544. Of the education which qualified Worlich to be the recipient of Gardiner's library no trace has been found; he appears to have sent four sons to Cambridge but not to have gone to either university himself, and his name does not occur at an inn of court, although his son Francis probably entered the Inner Temple. Early dependence upon the Wingfields might have taken him to Calais, and there is a remote chance that he was the Thomas Warley who served Viscount Lisle, the deputy, for a number of years before being discharged, with a reward of 13s.4d., when Lisle's household was dissolved in 1540. Alternatively, he could have joined his future brother-in-law James Wingfield in service with Gardiner and perhaps have accompanied the Bishop on his missions abroad.
Worlich was not among Gardiner's dependants who testified at the trial in 1551 nor does his name occur in the evidence then given. If Gardiner, by then a dying man, had a hand in Worlich's election in 1555, it was presumably the Wingfields who procured him the seat for Huntingdon; Thomas Maria Wingfield had recently sat three times for the borough and it may have been Wingfield's promotion to the knighthood of the shire which gave Worlich his chance there. Unlike his brother-in-law Worlich is not listed among the Members who voted against one of the government's bills; the division concerned took place within a month of Gardiner's death and Worlich may either have acted out of respect for the chancellor's memory orperhaps have been engaged in collecting his legacy of all Gardiner's ‘humanity and law books’. It is unlikely that he shared Gardiner's beliefs, for in 1564 his Bishop was to commend him to the Privy Council as ‘earnest in religion and fit tobe trusted’, and in 1571 and 1575 he was to be named to the commission for enforcing the Acts of Supremacy and Uniformity in the dioceses of Lincoln and Peterborough. In 1558 he and seven others had been commissioned to investigate breaches of Acts governing the making of cloth and leather. Worlich is not known to have made a will and his date of death has not been discovered.

WINGFIELD, Sir HUMPHREY (d. 1545), speaker of the House of Commons, was the twelfth son of Sir John Wingfield of Letheringham, Suffolk, by Elizabeth, daughter of Sir John FitzLewis of West Horndon, Essex. Sir John Wingfield, the father of four daughters and twelve sons, of whom Sir Richard (1469?-1525) and Sir Robert are noticed separately, had been sheriff of Norfolk and Suffolk in 1443-4 and again in 1461. He was knighted by Edward IV in 1461, and made a privy councillor. In 1477 he was appointed a commissioner to treat with the French ambassadors at Amiens. He died on 10 May 1481. His wife's will, dated 14 July 1497, was proved on 22 Dec. 1500.

Humphrey was educated at Gray's Inn, where he was elected Lent reader in 1517. He had been on the commission of the peace both for Essex and Suffolk since 1509 at least. Charles Brandon, duke of Suffolk [q v.], was a cousin of the Wingfields [see Wingfield, Sir Richard], Humphrey being one of his trustees and probably through his influence Wingfield was introduced at court. In 1515 he was appointed chamberlain to Suffolk's wife Mary, queen of France, and was apparently resident in her house. On 28 May 1517 he was nominated upon the royal commission for inquiring into illegal inclosures in Suffolk (see Leadam, Domesday of Inclosures, 1897, i. 3). He appears to have acted in 1518, together with his eldest brother, Sir John Wingfield [see under Wingfield, Sir Anthony], as a financial agent between the government and the Duke of Suffolk. On 6 Nov. 1620 he was pricked high sheriff of Norfolk and Suffolk, and on 14 Nov. was appointed a commissioner of gaol delivery for Essex. In 1523 and 1524 he was a commissioner of subsidy for Suffolk and for the town of Ipswich. On 26 June 1525 he was appointed a commissioner of assize for Suffolk, On 5 Feb. 1526 he was a legal member of the king's council. He is mentioned in a letter dated 25 March 1527 as 'in great favour with the cardinal' and he took an active part in the establishment of the 'cardinal's college' at Ipswich in September 1528. On 11 June 1529 he was nominated by Wolsey one of a commission of twenty-one lawyers presided over by John Taylor (d. 1534) [q. v.] to hear cases in chancery, and on the following 3 Nov. he was returned to parliament for Great Yarmouth.

In 1530 the fall of Wolsey brought with it the forfeiture of his college at Ipswich, and Wingfield was consulted as one of 'the best counsel,' with a view to securing the exemption of the college from the penalties of Wolsey's praemunire. On the other hand, he was nominated by the crown on 14 July 1530 a commissioner to inquire into Wolsey's possessions in Suffolk. In this capacity he, sitting with three other commissioners at Woodbridge, Suffolk, returned a verdict on 19 Sept. that the college and its lands were forfeited to the king. He was at the same time high steward of St. Mary Mettingham, another Suffolk college, and under-steward in Suffolk of the estates of St. Osyth, Essex.

On 9 Feb. 1533 the commons presented Wingfield to the king as their speaker. According to Chapuys, the king 'conferred on him the order of knighthood' on this occasion. He is styled 'Sir' in a petition of this year, and frequently afterwards, though, according to the list in Metcalfe's 'Book of Knights' (p. 71), he was not dubbed before 1537. During his speakership were passed the acts severing the church of England from the .Roman obedience and affirming the royal supremacy. There can be little doubt that Wingfield was in full sympathy with Henry's policy. He appears to have received from the crown a salary of 100l. a year 'for attendance,' an addition, doubtless, to the 'wages' found by his constituency.

Parliament was dissolved on 4 April 1536. On the outbreak of the northern rebellion in 1536 Wingfield was one of the Suffolk gentry upon whom the government relied for aid. He justified Cromwell's opinion of him by his zeal to suppress the seditious incitements of the friars and other disaffected ecclesiastics. He was nominated in 1536 a commissioner for the valuation of the lands and goods of religious houses in Norfolk and Suffolk. For these services he was rewarded by a grant in tail male, dated 29 June 1537, of the manors of Netherhall and Overhall in Dedham, Essex, and all the lands in Dedham belonging to the suppressed nunnery of Campsie, Suffolk, also of the manor of Crepinghall in Stutton, Suffolk, and all lands there belonging to the late priory of Colne Comitis (Earls Colne) in Essex. According to a letter written by him to Cromwell soon after this grant he would, but for it, 'have had to begin the world again,' having 'lost half his living by his wife's death.' On 4 July 1538 he was nominated upon a special commission of oyer and terminer for treasons in six of the eastern counties. He was also commissioned to survey the defensive points of the coast when in 1539 there were apprehensions of an invasion. He was among the knights appointed to receive Anne of Cleves in January 1540. After the conviction of the Marquis of Exeter he received a grant of a lease of his lands in Lalford Says, Ardelegh, Colchester, and Mile-End, in Essex and Suffolk.

Wingfield died on 23 Oct. 1545 (Inq. port mortem, 16 Jan. 1546). He married between 1502 and 1512 Anne, daughter and heiress of Sir John Wiseman of Essex, and widow of Gregory Adgore, Edgore, or Edgar, serjeant-at-law. His son and heir, Robert, married Bridget, daughter of Sir Thomas Partiger, knt., alderman and lord mayor of London in 1530. His daughter Anne married Sir Alexander Newton. Wingfield's arms are still in the fourth window on the north side of Gray's Inn Hall.
