He entered college at Oxford on 15 Oct 1624 and received his BA on May 7 1628 and his MA on 17 Jan 1631/32. He was first appointed as Rector of Easington, Oxfordshire in 1632.
In a history about Cheshire, the following information applies to this Reverend Thomas Mallory. "Between his matriculation and his appointment to the Unknown of Northenden, (Cheshire), Thomas Mallory junior was a curate, perhaps at Davenham (was Easington, Oxfordshire according to Virginia Heraldic). His younger brother, George, was curate under his father at Mobberley. By 1635 Thomas Mallory junior had acquired a wife, Jane, and children, one of whom, Franàces, was bequeathed 20 guineas, a very substantial sum, by Bishop Forster. But the curate installed at Northenden in 1616, a Mobberley man called Ralph Lowndes, still lived at the parsonage in Northenden. Thomas Mallory came to Northenden in 1640 after the death of Ralph Lowndes. By then his first wife had died and he had married Mary. So at the time of the siege Mallory was very much a newcomer to his parish.
His presence in the garrison was probably one of necessity, as well as conviction. He was ejected from the parsonage by the Parliamentarians in September 1643, at the same time as Tatton's step-father, Dr Nicholls, was ejected from the Unknown of Cheadle.(15)
Mrs. Mary Mallory and her large family were allowed to remain in the parsonage, unmolested by the Parliamentarians, at least until the arrival of Henry Dunster in 1645, when she retired to the small cottage that was part of the glebe lands, all the time drawing a fifth of her husband's stipend and farming part of the glebe lands." (E) His 2nd wife is listed by the name of Frances in other sources, including the "Virginia Heredic".
On July 30 1660, he was made Canon of Chester. He was the Rector of Eccleston, in county Lancaster, England, a royalist minister according to the "Encyclopedia of Virginia Biography". He died 11 years later at Brindle near Eccleston, Lancashire. His will names sons Roger and Thomas in Virgina.
In his will he mentions sons Roger and Thomas in Virginia. All of Thomas children apparently weren't in his will, as I've found two children listed clearly in Virgina, USA, that aren't on the normal list for his children. Perhaps he had a son named Peter very early on before he was married at about age 18.
When civil war broke out in England, Thomas who was rector at Northenden church, rode immediately to the home of Robert Tatton and joined a small band holding there against Cromwell's forces. They were not well armed and were soon overtaken. Thomas seems to have been taken prisoner at this time. All his property and income were sequestered. In 1660 he petitioned Parliament to regain his property and Unknown. A month later, Charles II being restored to the throne reinstated Thomas and made him a canon of Chester. The following December he was created a doctor of divinity and was afterward identified as 'Thomas Mallory the Devine'. He died in 1671 in Lancashire where he was rector of Eccleston and Brindle. His will was proved in Chester in May of 1674. Sons Thomas and Roger are named as being in Virginia in his will. He was married twice, first to Jane and secondly to Frances.
