Sir Eubule Thelwall (c. 1557 – 8 October 1630) was principal of Jesus College, Oxfordmarker from 1621 to 1630.

Life

Thelwall was the fifth son of John Wynne Thelwall and was educated at Westminster Schoolmarker and Trinity College, Cambridgemarker, where he received his BA in 1577. Thelwall went to Oxford in 1579, and took his MA in 1580. He accepted membership of Gray's Innmarker, became a barrister in 1599 and treasurer of Gray's Inn in 1625. He accepted a clerkship in the Alienation Office and was then promoted to become a master in ordinary of the High Court of Chancery (1617-1630). He was knighted on 29 June 1619, and elected MP for Denbighshire (1624–26 and 1628–29).

Thelwall became Principal of Jesus College, Oxfordmarker in 1621, and remained in this post until he died on 8 October 1630, aged 68. He was buried in Jesus College Chapel where a monument was erected to his memory by his brother Sir Bevis Thelwall (Page of the King's Bedchamber and Clerk of the Great Wardrobe). Eubule Thelwall was called the "second founder" of Jesus College because he spent £5,000 building the hall and chapel and succeeded in securing a new charter and statutes for the college from James I in 1622. Thelwall never married, and left his estate (Plas Coch in the parish of Llanychan, Denbighshire) to his nephew John. There is a picture of him as a child in Jesus College.
