a. The Complete Peerage identifies but one wife for Sir Thomas de Weyland, that being Margaret de Moese, but recent research by John Ravilious posted on soc.genealogy.medieval indicates Margaret was his second wife, and not, as CP claims, the mother of his two eldest sons, William and John. They were Thomas's sons by his first wife, Ann de Colevill, while youngest son, Richard de Weyland was the child of Margaret de Moese. Thomas de Weyland was Lord Chief Justice of the King's Bench, and, around 1288, fell into disgrace and fled into exile, probably to France. Evidently, he did not heed King Edward's advice concerning the Scottish succession, "that the kingdom should be regarded as impartible", and rather suggested its division between Baliol, Bruce, and Hastings, as being "to Edward's greatest advantage." He is said to have fled to the abbey of the Friar's Minor at Bury St. Edmunds and subsequently to have "abjured the realm."
