Thomas Tregoz (d. 1335)
Tregoz seems to be held, as a subtenant to Robert Tateshale, a few manors in Sussex but to be otherwise an undistinguished person. John de Tregoz was created Lord Tregoz in 1299 and Thomas in some genealogies appears to be his grandson, sometimes described him as 3rd Baron Tregoz, however other genealogies give a different, more distant connection. It appears he had no claim to the Tregoz family holdings in the welsh marches.
Thomas was appointed to organise and lead contingents against the Scots from Sussex, 1316, 1322, and 1323, and from Surrey and Sussex in 1326, and further summoned for personal service against the Scots 1318, 1319, 1333, 1nd 1335...As if to underline that, Thomas de Tregoz was a knight of great note; he was certified, pursuant to a writ tested at Clipstone, to be Lord of Goring, Preston, Burpham, and Greatham, Sussex... Thomas de Tregoz was appointed Knight of the Shire for Sussex, 1320 and 1321... Thomas de Tregoz, being returned by the Sheriff of Sussex to attend the Great Council at Westminster. Thomas de Tregoz was Justice for oyer and terminer in Kent, Surrey, Sussex, Hants and Wilts. He was again summoned for Parliament as a Baron, from 27 Jan 1331/2 to 1 April 1335. (Symond)
Although summoned to parliament by writ in 1317 (the parliament was prorogued) and 1331 Thomas also served as knight of the shire for Sussex. The family were clearly on the cusp of baronial status.
