Robert Wyvill and Thomas de Clifford, Joint Wardens 1348

Little or nothing is known about this pair who were appointed joint Wardens in 1348, serving only until 26 May the following year.

Thomas is undoubtedly a member of the prominent de Clifford family, of Herefordshire, but it is not known how he fits into that family. The surname Wyvill is also well known in Yorkshire in the 14th century and it is possible that the island Warden was Robert de Wyvill (1294-1375), Bishop of Salisbury.
