  • Notes 
    • Thomas was the son of Robert ab Eynon (Baynham) and Margaret Abrahall.
      He married firstly Margaret Hody, she died before 1470.
      They were the parents of:
      Sir Alexander Baynham, born 1459, of, Westbury-on-Severn, Gloucestershire, England and died September 25, 1524
      William Baynham, born 1461,
      Elizabeth Baynham, born 1463,
      Isabell Baynham, born 1465 and died Aft June 24, 1519.
      Thomas married secondly Alice Walwyn about 1470.
      They were the parents of:
      Jane Baynham, born 1472, Mitcheldean, Gloucestershire, England
      Sir Christopher Baynham, born 1478, Mitcheldean, Gloucestershire, England and died October 6, 1557, Glowerwall, Gloucestershire, England
      Susan Baynham, born 1479
      Anne Baynham, born 1480

      It was during Thomas' life that St Michael and all Angels church attained much of the appearance it has today. In the second half of the 15th century, a clerestory and west window were added to the nave giving it a spacious air, and later in this period the roofs of the two north aisles were altered to their present form by rebuilding the centre arcade making one roof outside but inside separate finely carved wooden ones. Also the east and west windows of the north aisle were altered and the west door of the nave added. All this rebuilding was in the perpendicular style. It is likely too that the upper tower and spire were added, and also the panel paintings above the chancel entry.
      Probably most of the cost of this work fell on the Baynham and his second wife, Alice, estates. But as Thomas Baynham was at different times the sheriff of the country and co-constable of St Briavels castle, the combined resources of his and Alice families would have been able to bear these expenses.
