  • The place of brith reported in some genealogies for Thomas is veryinteresting.  They say he was born in Norton, Oxfordshire.  This maybe a confusion of the town of Chipping Norton in western Oxfordshirewith Greene's Norton, in Northamptonshire.  The Greenes are associatedwith a town called Greene's Norton, or Greens Norton, so-calledbecause the whole town was sold to a Greene ancestor in the 1300s.

    "In medieval times, the village was known a simply 'Norton' and was aroyal domain of Edward the Confessor and later William the Conqueror.In the 14th century the whole village was sold to Sir Henry Greene fora total of 20 shillings hence the name Greene's Norton, which today isreduced to just Greens Norton."
