  Noted events in his life were:

Scalacronica, 1355-1362. 3008 Grey was taken prisoner in late 1355 and held captive at Edinburgh Castle. He had been released by 15 August 1357. While in captivity at Edinburgh, Grey started to write the Scalacronica, a chronicle in Anglo-Norman French in five parts, which relates both universal and English history from the earliest times. He was released in 1356 and continued to work on it back in England up until the year 1362. The chief historical value of the work is in the parts dealing with the reigns of King Edward I , King Edward II , and King Edward III which draw on the personal experience of both the author and his father as soldiers in the Anglo-Scottish and French wars during those reigns.




Thomas married Margaret de Presfen, daughter of William de Presfen Of Presson, Nothumberland and Unknown, circa 1353.3008
