     He was educated at Cambridge University, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England.1 He held the office of a Burgess of Colchester in 1516.1 He was admitted to Inner Temple in 1526 entitled to practice as a Barrister-at-Law.1 He held the office of Attorney-General [Duchy of Lancaster] between 1526 and 1531.1,4 He held the office of Member of Parliament (M.P.) for Essex between 1529 and 1532.1 He held the office of Speaker of the House of Commons in November 1529.1 He obtained a large share of Abbey lands, particular those of the Holy Trinity, Christchurch, Aldgate, in return for his services to the King.2 He held the office of King's Serjeant on 14 November 1531.1 He was invested as a Knight on 30 May 1532.1 He held the office of Lord Keeper on 30 May 1532.1 He held the office of Lord Chancellor between 24 January 1533 and 21 April 1544.2 He was created 1st Baron Audley of Walden, co.

     On his death, the Barony Audley of Warden became extinct.2
     According to E. Foss, "Audley has acquired the character of undoutably equally, if he did not exceed, all of his contemporaries in servility," and "his interpretations of the law on various criminal trials at which he presided are a disgrace not only to him, but to every member of the bench associated with him, while both branches of the legislature are equally chargeable with the ignominy of passing the acts he introduced, perilling every man's life by the new treasons they invented, and every man's conscience by the contradictory oaths they imposed."2 He has an extensive biographical entry in the Dictionary of National Biography.5
