Biography

No trace of Robert Trigges has been found before he took the senior place for Chichester in the Parliament of 1529, being presumably already the city’s recorder. He may have been helped at the election by the 9th Lord la Warr, a Sussex magnate, with whom he was associated during the 1530s. Nothing is known about Trigges’s part
