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.

A. Thomas Burgh, Sheriff of Lincolnshire, 3rd Lord of Gainsborough d 28.02.1549/50
BE1883 differs here from TCP. BE1883 shows Thomas, 3rd Lord d 1552, as having married Anne Tyrwhit and been father of another Thomas, 4th Lord m1. Elizabeth Owen, m2. Alice, father of William, 5th Lord. Against the name of Thomas, 4th Lord, BE1883 provides a note that "Sir Harris Nicolas omits this Thomas de Burgh as if he considered him identical with Thomas, the 3rd baron." We follow TCP BP1934 and BLG1886 and therefore hereafter use different numberings of the Lords from BE1883.
m1 1496 Agnes Tyrwhitt dau of Sir William Trywhitt of Kettleby
Elizabeth, daughter of Sir David Owen, is identified by BE1883 as the faithless wife who had children by another person during the marriage with her husband obtaining an Act of Parliament to have them bastardised and thereafter identifies William, successor of Thomas '4th Lord', as by his second wife Alice. However, TCP, which we follow, identifies Agnes Tyrwhitt as that wife but shows William as accepted by Thomas as his legitimate successor.

m2 Alice London d by 1559, dau of William London
Other than William, shown above, BE1883 shows the following as children by this marriage. As TCP identifies William as 3rd and youngest son of the first marriage, it is assumed that BE1883 was mistaken in suggesting that Henry if he was of this generation was born before William. BP1934 mentions Henry noting his ancestry of the family of Stowe but, as it does not mention the marriage to Alice London, identifies him as 4th son of Agnes Tyrwhitt.
