Rev. Thomas Mallory, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, Rev. Thomas Mallory might describe his life as follows.

My father, Sir William Mallory, a Member of Parliament, was descended from the ancient Mallory family of Yorkshire, England. Among his ancestors was Henry II, King of England. Mother was Ursula Gale, the daughter of Sir George Gale, the mayor of York.
I was probably about 16 of age when I enrolled at Cambridge University 29 September 1582. I held ecclesiastical offices at Ronaldskirk in the North Riding of York, was Dean of Chester beginning 25 July 1607, and was parson of Mobberly Church from 1621 on.
The mother of my 14 children was Elizabeth Vaughan, the daughter of Richard Vaughan, Bishop of London. Daughter Mary married John Batte, later of Virginia. Son Philip, also a clergyman and chaplain of the Grand Assembly in Jamestown, served in the Colony of Virginia 1657-61. Our grandsons Thomas and Roger Mallory were Virginians, too, and among their descendants were 4 congressmen.
One of my most famous descendants is John Mercer Langston, whose parents could not marry because his mother was of African heritage. John was the first African-American lawyer in Ohio and a U.S. congressman. Langston University in Oklahoma was named for him.
During the English Civil War between King Charles I and Oliver Cromwell, my sons and I backed the king. Forced to flee from my rectory at Mobberly in 1642, I took refuge at Chester where I died 3 April 1644 and was buried in the cathedral. Elizabeth was still living as late as 1661.

No probate records exist for Dean Mallory. He died just as the Civil War began and it is presumed that his heirs feared pursing his estate for fear they would expose themselves to the anti-royalists.

Thomas’ parents
Sir William Mallory succeeded to the titles of Studley and Hutton when his elder brother Christopher Mallory died 23 March 1553/54. In 1569 the Catholic Earls of Northumberland and Westmoreland in the North of England rose up against the Protestant Queen Elizabeth. Sir William was on the side of the Queen, giving reports and advice to the Earl of Sussex. In 1570 he was appointed high steward of Ripon, an office he held for life.
Sir William was a member of parliament for Yorkshire in 1585 and was a high sheriff of the county in 1592. He suppressed Catholics and aggressively advanced the Protestant Reformation. In 1575 the Commissioners at York for Ecclesiastical Causes asked him to pull down the golden tabernacle at Ripon, Brest Lowe, and to use the materials in repairing the chancel. They buried him at Ripon 22 March 1602/3 (will dated 15 June 1586 and proved 5 April 1603).
Gale left his daughter Ursula and her husband £20 in his will of 1536.

Elizabeth’s parents
Richard Vaughan was born about 1550 at Nyffryn in Llyn, Carnarvonshire, the second son of Thomas ap Robert Vychan, or Vaughan. Richard Vaughan enrolled at Cambridge 16 Nov. 1569, receiving a B.A. in 1573/4 and an M.A. in 1577.
Richard was successively Canon of St. Paul’s Cathedral (1583-4), and Bishop of Bangor (1596), and of Chester (1597). In 1604 King James I promoted Vaughan to the Bishopric of London as successor to Bancroft and he was enthroned 26 Dec. 1607. He died of apoplexy 30 March 1607/8 and was buried in Bishop Kemp’s Chapel at St. Paul’s.
