FROMOND, Gregory, of Shoreham, Suss.
Available from Boydell and Brewer
Family and Education
In December 1384, described as ‘of Sussex’, Fromond provided securities in Chancery on behalf of Thomas Outby, clerk, a defendant in a lawsuit. That he probably lived in Shoreham is suggested by the fact that he witnessed the will which Ralph Double, the London fishmonger, made there in May 1391.1
Gregory was related to the Fromonds of Winchester, of whom John Fromond (d.1420), the steward of the estates of Winchester college and founder of the chantry there which bears his name, left property in Old and New Shoreham.2
