CONINGSBY, Thomas I, of Leominster, Herefs.
Available from Boydell and Brewer
Family and Education
Coningsby doubtless owed his return to his first cousin Humphrey Coningsby I, steward of the manor of Leominster at the time of the election, who in his will left a 40s. annuity to his ‘servant’ Thomas Coningsby. Little has been ascertained about him. It was probably he, rather than his namesake, Humphrey Coningsby’s son (who did not come of age until 1571), who in 1567 leased the site of Leominster priory and property at Ivington, Herefordshire, formerly held by Humphrey.
