The Conisbees and Coningsbys
I run a one name study on the name Coningsby which over time has also become Conisbee.
I have spent 20 years piecing together a pedigree of the Coningsby family from 1180 through to 1850ish,I also have the Conisbee family (and many of their descendants)from 1650 through to the preseent date in 2011.
In particular the Coningsby pedigree deals with the myth of one Amphylis Coningsby who is alledged to have been born in Rothbury in Cumberland before marrying a John Tyndale.
The will of her father Sir Humphrey Coningbsy as reproduced in "Genealogical Memoirs of the extinct family - The Chesters of Chichley" by Robert Edmund Chester Waters; changed the descentant line quite considerably but put in no doubt that she married Sir John Tyndall and not Sir Thomas as previous authors had suggested. Further more she did not have a child Margaret Tyndale who is alledged to have married the English Martyr.
SIR JOHN TYNDALL KT., the only son of Sir 'William by Mary Mondeford, was ten years old when his father died, and was then already contracted to marry one of the daughters of Humphrey Coningsby, Serjeant-at-Law (afterwards a Knight and a Judge of the King's Bench), to whom his wardship and marriage had been sold by his father. He married accordingly Amphillis Coningsby, who died before him on 18th Jan. 1532-3, leaving nine children, none were Margaret!
