Sir Thomas More
Sir Thomas More married the former Jane Colt in 1505. They had four children: Margaret, Elizabeth, Cicely, and John. After Jane’s death in 1511, Thomas More was remarried that same year to a wealthy widow, Alice Harpur Middleton. She and More had no children together… Thomas More’s daughter Margaret More, married name Margaret Roper, became a widely-known writer, unusual for a woman in that era… The 1966 movie A Man For All Seasons, based on Robert Bolt’s play, won six Oscars including the best actor award for Paul Scofield… Sir Thomas More was played by Jeremy Northam in the popular TV series The Tudors (2007-10)… Pope John Paul II upped Saint Thomas More’s standing in 2000, naming him the “heavenly Patron of Statesmen and Politicians.”
