Thomas Twell, monk of Roche:

Thomas was the subprior of the abbey and, following the dissolution of the house he became a priest in Nottinghamshire; in his will of 16 November 1558, he styled himself ‘Sir Thomas Twelves of Blyth, a Nottinghamshire priest’ . Thomas left money and goods to his sister and other relatives, and made bequests to the poor of Blyth and surrounding villages. He also left a vestments and a chalice to Sheffield parish church, in return for a mass for his father and himself. (1)
