Sir Thomas Wentworth was knighted for his bravery at the battle of Spurs 16 Aug 1513. Up to this period the successors to the estate of Wentworth Woodhouse were almost all only sons and most married heiresses. By this time therefore the wealth of the family was enormous. Sir Thomas bore the nickname of Golden Thomas.
