THOMAS (PEYVRE), LORD PEYVRE, son and heir by 1st wife, was aged 18 on 1 (or 2) February 1361/2, and became a prominent personality in all the concerns of his county. In 1372 he was a collector of the Fifteenth in Beds; Knight of the Shire in the Parliaments of 1377, 1379, 1382 (bis), 1384 and 1385; sheriff of Beds and Bucks, 1378-79, 1388-89, 1392-93, and 1406-07; escheator in those countles, 1380-82; J.P. 1381. In addition he served on numerous commissions in the county.

He married Margaret, daughter and coheir of Sir Nele LORING, K.G., of Chalgrave, Beds, by Margaret, daughter and heir of Sir Ralph BEAUPEL, of Knowstone, Devon. He died shortly before 2 September 1429.

Manorial Estate, 1386, Chalgrave Manor, Chalgrave, Luton, Bedfordshire, LU4, GB. 3 In 1086 the manor of CHALGRAVE, extended at 8 hides 2/3 virgates, was held by Albert of Lorraine of the king in chief, but by 1168 the overlordship had passed to the barony of Bedford (q.v.). It was assigned to that portion of the honour which was inherited by the Mowbrays, and was attached to their manor of Melton Mowbray as late as 1615.

The connexion of Albert of Lorraine with the Loring family, who succeeded him in the lordship of the manor, has been explained under Sharnbrook (q.v.), with which Chalgrave was held until 1386. After the death of Robert Loring, c. 1185, Chalgrave was valued at 22 8s. per annum, and free warren was granted in 1366 to Sir Nigel, the last male representative of this family, who took part in the French wars, fought at Sluys and Poitiers, and was one of the original Knights of the Garter when the order was founded in 1344. He retired to Chalgrave about 1365 and died c. 1386, leaving two daughters and co-heirs, to the elder of whom Sharnbrook was assigned, while Margaret, the younger, the wife of Thomas Pever of Toddington, acquired Chalgrave. Since this date up to the beginning of the 19th century this manor has always been held with Toddington, the chief seat (q.v.). By his will proved in 1429 Thomas Pever left to John Broughton, the husband of his daughter and heir Mary, 'the cattle quyke and dede upon the maner of Chalgrave, the whishe harry wilde hath in kepying with his ferme that is to wyte Oxen shepe with ledys and caudrons of Bras.' The last male representative of the family, who died some time after 1519, left a daughter and heir Anne, who in 1539 carried Chalgrave in marriage to Sir Thomas Cheney.

Thomas married Margaret Loring, daughter of Sir Nigel Loring of Chalgrave, Bedfordshire and Margaret Beaupel. (Margaret Loring was born about 1356.)
