Vaux, Thomas, Lord. The Poems of this nobleman appeared posthumously in The Paradise of Dainty Devices, 1576. According to a note at the back of the title page of the 1580 ed., the poems which therein appear under the name of Vaux were written by "the elder," i.e. Thomas, second Lord Vaux, who was born in 1510, and died before May 31, 1557. Other writers have suggested that William, the third Lord Vaux, was a joint contributor with his father. William died. in 1595. The Vaux poems, 15 in all, were republished by Dr. Grosart in his Fuller Worthies Library, Miscell., vol. iv.
