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.

Audley 2: Audley of Brerechurch, Audley of Earls Colne, Audley of Gransden Magna, Audley of Houghton Conquest
Annoyingly, the Visitation used as the Main Source for most of this page appears to be wrong in the way that it shows how the family's most famous member Lord Chancellor Thomas connected to the undermentioned family. BE1883 Audley of Walden reports a Lord Braybrooke as having reported that "It seems extraordinary that neither Camden, who lived so much nearer those times, nor Dugdale could with all their industry satisfy themselves as to the birth-place or extraction of Thomas Audley" but goes on to identify the following Geoffrey as his father. This is supported by TCP Audley of Walden. BE1883 indicates that the family had been at Earls Colne for several generations. TCP notes that Thomas "appears to have had two brothers, both also named Thomas, who inherited the manors of Berechurch and Gosbecks, near Colchester." This appears to confirm that Thomas was of the family covered by the Visitation but, until we see how Geoffrey fitted into that family, we show him separately.

1 Visitation Bedfordshire shows Henry as dsp and his brother Thomas of Houghton Conquest 2nd of that name, the other being Lord Chancellor Thomas as father of the Thomas who m. Anne Hewet. However, the Harleian editor notes that the Essex Visitation shows that Thomas m. Anne Hewet as son of Henry rather than Thomas and adds "which I think is right, as I do not think Henry had two brothers named Thomas."
