Thomas De Lisle

Thomas de Lisle (c. 1298–1361) was a medieval Bishop of Ely.

De Lisle was elected to Ely on 15 July 1345 and consecrated in July 1345. He had his servants burn down some of the houses belonging to Blanche of Lancaster, Baroness Wake of Liddell. He was rebuked by Edward III and ordered to pay damages, but after that he had her servant William Holm murdered in 1355. Edward then confiscated his possessions and made him beg for forgiveness.

De Lisle died on 23 June 1361.

Famous quotes containing the word thomas:

    But my greatest delight is to take a good bite
    At a calf that is plump and delicious;
    And if I indulge in a bite at a bulge,
    Let’s hope you won’t think me too vicious.
    —Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
