2451 Thomas de Colepeper was a Recognitor of the Grand Assize. The Grand Assize was a judicial proceeding or inquiry and the Recognitors who were summoned on such a tribunal were the jurors. Their function was to investigate all cases involving questions of right. As Recognitors were probably neighbors of the disputing parties they were bound to "recognize" and speak the truth concerning the matter at issue. - From "The Sussex Colepepers" published in the "Sussex Archaeological Collections" Volume XLVII 1904 pp. 48-49. Colepeper, Sir Thomas (I5196)

2453 Thomas Digges; Compiled by Richard S. Westfall Department of History and Philosophy of Science Indiana University
Thomas Digges was a mathamatician member of parliament and a soldier. He received his early education from his father who himself was a good scientist writing on surveying. When Thomas Digges was less than ten his father was attainted for treason in the Wyatt rebellion against Mary and his estate confiscated. After the accession of Elizabeth Digges was able to reclaim the estate of his now dead father. It is simply not clear what one can say about the economic circumstances in which he was reared.
Thomas later received advanced mathematical instruction from John Dee. He was to remain a friend of Dee's and undertook joint work with him.
Digges wrote on platonic solids and Archimedian solids which appear in Pantometria (1571). This work includes contributions by Digges's father. In 1573 Digges published "Alae seu scalae mathematicae" a work on the position of the 'Tycho (Brahe)'s supernova' of 1572. This work includes observations of the position of the 'new star' and trigonometric theorems which could be used to determine the parallax of the star. The observations are particularly impressive making Digges the ablest observer of his time. Digges's friend Dee published a similar work on the supernova.
Digges was the leader of the English Copernicans. He translated part of Copernicus's "De revolutionibus" and added his own ideas of an infinite universe with the stars at varying distances an infinite space. He published "A Perfit Description
of the Caelestial Orbes" in 1576 which again restates Copernicus's views.
His military career was with the English forces in the Netherlands from 1586 to 1594. The modern state of the Netherlands came into existence with the Treaty of Utrecht in 1579. This was the year Digges wrote his military work "Stratioticos" which he dedicated to Robert Dudley Earl of Leicester. Dudley was named governor-general of the Netherlands in 1586 and Dudley appointed Digges to be Muster- Master-General of his army to assist him in the campaign. Stratioticos" (1579) is a mathematics book for soldiers and contains the first discussion of ballistics in a work published in England. He was involved in the plans for the repair of Dover Harbor in charge of fortification in 1582. He wrote extensively on surveying and published a plan of Dover Castle town and harbor in 1581.
Digges was a member of parliament from 1572 and again in 1584.
