Statue of Sir Thomas Erpingham (Erpingham Gate, Norwich) (cropped).jpg

Thomas Erpingham (c. 1355 – 27 June 1428) was an English soldier and administrator who served three generations of the House of Lancaster including two English kings. Through his access to royal patronage he acquired great wealth and influence. During the reign of Richard II he served under the King's uncle John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster, in Spain and Scotland, and with John's son Henry Bolingbroke on crusades in Lithuania, Prussia and the Holy Land. On becoming king as Henry IV, Bolingbroke rewarded him with senior appointments. He later helped suppress the Epiphany Rising and was appointed guardian of Henry's second son Thomas. Erpingham was a member of the Privy Council, acting at one point as marshal of England. In 1415 he served as a knight banneret in Henry V's campaign in France and commanded the archers at the Battle of Agincourt. A benefactor to the city of Norwich, he built the main cathedral gate which bears his name. (Full article...)
