Minot, Thomas an Irish prelate, was consecrated archbishop of Dublin on Palm Sunday in 1363. In 1366. the revenues of the precentor of St. Patrick's having been much reduced by the invasion of the Irish from the mountains, he united to that dignity the Church of Kilmactalwav. This addition was for the purpose of enabling the incumbent to live hospitably, give alms, and answer the expenses and charges of his office. About 1370 Minot repaired part of St.
Patrick's Church, which had been destroyed by fire. In 1373 he was one of those who advised the customs and assessments imposed, and other arbitrary measures enforced by William de Windsor, lord deputy. In 1374 he erected the Church of Rathsallagh into a prebend, and in 1375 had the royal mandate to attend a council to consider and provide against the hostilities of the O'Briens of Thomond, who invaded Munster. But in June of 1375 he died in London. See D'Alton, Memoirs of the Archbishops of Dublin, page 138.
