Thomas Ingoldsby, of an old Buckinghamshire family,1 was grandson of Sir Richard Ingoldsby, K.B., M.P., the regicide and cousin of Oliver Cromwell, who sat in the Protector’s ‘other House’ as Lord Ingoldsby and represented Aylesbury from 1661 to 1681. Returned for Aylesbury at a by-election in 1730, when he defeated the sitting Member, one of Walpole’s followers, Ingoldsby voted with the Government on the excise bill 1733 and on the repeal of the Septennial Act 1734. He was listed in 1733 as a supporter of administration candidates throughout Buckinghamshire2 for the general election of 1734, at which he did not stand. He died late in 1768.
