Thomas Percy, 1st Earl of Northumberland
by Steven van der Meulan 1
     Thomas Percy, 1st Earl of Northumberland was born circa 1528. He was the son of Sir Thomas Percy and Eleanor Harbottle.2 He married Anne Somerset, daughter of Henry Somerset, 2nd Earl of Worcester and Elizabeth Browne, in 1558. He died on 22 August 1572 at York, Yorkshire, England, beheaded.
     He was created 1st Earl of Northumberland [England] on 1 May 1557.
     When beheaded for conspiring against Queen Elizabeth (avowing the Pope's supremacy, and affirming the realm to be in a state of schism, and those obedient to Elizabeth no better than heretics), his honours would have fallen under his attainder, but for the revisionary clause in favour of his brother.
