Mayor, Leicester Mich. 1413-14.1


Evington stood surety for John Tonge when the latter was returned to Parliament in 1407, and in 1419 he was again present at the Leicester elections. In May 1420 he was a member of a distinguished group of men, headed by Thomas Langley, bishop of Durham (then chancellor of England), who were buying from Maud, widow of John, Lord Lovell, the manors of Thornton and Bagworth in Leicestershire, and those of Southrop and Wicklescott in Wiltshire.2
