BLESSED THOMAS PALLISER
Source - A Lit. and Biog. History ... of the English Catholics, by J. Gillow, 5 v. 1885-1902
PALLISER, THOMAS, priest, ven. martyr, a native of Ellerton-upon-Swale, parish of Catterick, north riding of Yorkshire, was educated at Rheims and at Valladolid, where he was ordained priest in 1596. His missionary labours appear to have been spent in the county of Durham, where he was apprehended in the house of Mr. John Norton, near Ravensworth. At Durham he was condemned to death under the statute of 27 Eliz., and was executed Aug. 9, 1600.

Note by TJS: Thomas Palliser, in other sources, was said to have been born in Kirby Wiske. He was certainly in close contact with the same Talbot family of North Otterington, with whom the Kirby Wiske Pallisers were very friendly.
