By 1615 he was 'of Borneend' and his eldest son Thomas became 'of Warley.3'" His will, made 7 December 1627, was proved 24 February 1634/5.3

Property1623, Cranfield, Beds"In the survey of 1623, as Thomas Wheeler, Senior, he had over 29 acres, seven and one quarter being the 'Scite of his house with the Ley Close adjoyning'; two and a half acres of 'Grove Close;' over four and three quarters of 'The Brache;' and fourteen and a quarter acres, 'Tadd Croft and Tyn Meade.' In addition, Thomas Wheeler held land from the Manor of Redlands, a four and three quarters acre pasture. In [his] will, Thomas Wheeler bequeathed an item from the parlour at 'Borne end house'. Bourne End House, nearby to Washingley Manor House and Hill Green Farm, was depicted in the 1765 Jeffrey's map of Bedfordshire as a mansion house, the most impressive building at Bourne End. It later belonged to the Baker and Coleman families."1
