Sorlebor de Cuningesbi (a c1160) after whom came ...
1. John de Coningsbie of Coningesbie (d Chesterfield 1266)
  m. ?? Badlesmere (sister (sb aunt?) of Bartholmew, Lord Badlesmere of Leeds)

  m. Joan Bagott (dau of Sir Roger or John Bagott of Morton Bagot, son of Sir William)
  a. John de Coningsbie (d 1366-7)
  Visitation identifies John's wife Agatha as Thomas Clynton of Badesley. Collins confirms this (spelling his estate as Badsley-Clinton) and identifies her mother as Maud, dau of Sir Ralph Bracebridge. This suggests that Thomas Clinton was the same person as the Thomas de Clinton of Amington and Maxstoke, who married a Maud, dau of Sir Ralph Bracebridge, but we note that the dates, whilst not denying this possibility, make this look more speculative than we like for making the connection.

  (1) Thomas Coningsby (a 1366)
BE1883, which starts properly with the Sir Humphrey who was father of Thomas who married Cicely Salway, says of this Thomas that "A Thomas de Coningsbie certainly distinguished himself in the martial reign of Edward III, and participated in the glory of Poictiers, and the family of which we are about to treat may have sprung from him, but of that there is no evidence." Collins and Visitation provide the connection.
