Noted events in his life were:
• Conflict with Richard II. 2213 After Richard II regained power, Beauchamp retired to his estates, but was charged with high treason in 1397. He was imprisoned in the Tower of London (in what is now known as the "Beauchamp Tower"), pleaded guilty and threw himself on the mercy of the king. He forfeited his estates and titles, and was sentenced to life imprisonment on the Isle of Man. The next year, however, he was moved back to the Tower, until he was released in August 1399 after Henry Bolingbroke's initial victories over King Richard II. After Bolingbroke deposed Richard and became king as Henry IV , Beauchamp was restored to his titles and estates. He was one of those who urged the new King to execute Richard.
Thomas married Margaret Ferrers, daughter of William Ferrers Third Baron of Groby and Baroness Margaret de Ufford. (Margaret Ferrers was born in Mar 1347 in Groby Castle, Warwickshire, England 2212 and died on 22 Jan 1406 in Warwick, Warwickshire, England 2212.)
