"Thomas Luttrell, the eldest son of Simon Luttrell, was returned in 1613, with his relative Sir Christopher Plunkett of Dunsoghly, as Knight of the shire for the County Dublin, and took a prominent part in public affairs as one of the leaders of the Roman Catholic party in the House of Commons.
He was one of those who in 1605 signed the petition from the Roman Catholic lords and gentlemen of the Pale, and his action at that time led to his confinement in Dublin Castle, and to a recommendation from the Lord Deputy that on account of his obstinacy in refusing to make any acknowledgement of wrong doings he should be sent into England.
He was foremost in the contest for the Speaker's Chair in 1613, and was one of those who went on the Roman Catholic deputation to James I. He had incurred the bitter enmity of Lord Deputy Chichester, and owing to the allegations which the Lord Deputy made against him was thrown into the Fleet Prison in London and kept a prisoner for eleven weeks.
The rapid changes of that time soon brought him into favour again. In 1627 he was returned as one of the men of fair estate in the English Pale who were fit to be placed in command of a troop of horse, and in 1634 he was again elected as one of the representative's of the County Dublin, and was present at the opening of Strafford's first parliament."
"His provision for his second wife, who survived him, and for his children, indicates that the wealth of the Luttrells had not decreased in his hands."
from Ball's "A History of the County Dublin"
