Sir William ap Thomas, The Blue Knight of Gwent

William ap Thomas (died 1445) was a member of the Welsh gentry family that came to be known as the Herbert family through his son William Herbert, 1st Earl of Pembroke and is an ancestor of the current Earls of Pembroke.
Raglan manor, attained through marriage through heiress Elizabeth Bluet, was greatly expanded by William and his son, William Herbert, into the well-fortified Raglan Castle, one of the finest late medieval Welsh castles.
William served King Henry V of England during his first French campaign and in numerous subsequent capacities and was knighted in 1426.
Remarks
In 1410, he and Thomas, lord Berkeley (brother of Sir James Berkely, whose widow he married) feloniously seized a Genoese ship laden with wine, for which they had to make restitution. (Bradney, History of Monmouthshire, vol. 1 p. 5, 6)
