Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


The Tomsaete or Tomsæte (dwellers of the Tame valley) were a tribe or clan in Anglo-Saxon England living in the valley of the River Tame in the West Midlands of England from around 500[1] and remaining around Tamworth throughout the existence of the Kingdom of Mercia.[2]

An Anglo-Saxon charter of 849 describes an area of Cofton Hackett in the Lickey Hills south of Birmingham as "the boundary of the Tomsæte and the Pencersæte",[3] and another charter of 835 describes Humberht as "Princeps of the Tomsæte",[4] suggesting that the group retained its identity long after being subsumed into Mercia.[5]
