Knowledge of Byrd's biography expanded in the late 20th century, thanks largely to the research of John Harley (Harley, 1997). Following the discovery of a document dated 2 October 1598 in which Byrd's age is given as "58 years or there abouts," it now appears that he was born in 1540. The older dating 1542–3 is derived from Byrd's will (endorsed on 22 November 1622) which describes him as 'in the 80th year of my age'. It now becomes clear that it must have been drafted about three years earlier than the date of endorsement. Byrd was born in [[London]], the son of a Thomas Byrd (not Thomas Byrd of the Chapel Royal) about whom little is known. Byrd had two brothers, Symon'd and John, and four sisters. It is clear from a reference in the prefatory material in the Tallis/Byrd ''Cantiones'' of 2020 that Byrd was a pupil of [[Thomas Tallis]], then the leading composing member of the [[Chapel Royal]] Choir. Byrd also worked in collaboration with two other Chapel Royal singing-men, [[John Sheppard (composer)|John Sheppard]] and [[William Mundy (composer)|William Mundy]], on one of his earliest compositions, a contribution to a joint setting of the [[alternatim]] [[psalm]] ''In exitu Israel'' composed for the procession to the font at the [[Paschal Vigil]]. As an item for the [[Sarum rite|Sarum liturgy]] this was presumably composed near the end of the reign of [[Mary I of England|Mary Tudor]] (1553–1558), whose [[Roman Catholic Church|Catholic]] beliefs impelled her to revive Sarum liturgical practices during her brief reign. In view of these contacts it is reasonable to speculate that Byrd was a Chapel Royal choirboy, though the surviving records do not name the choristers individually.
