There’s quite a few references to Coningsby if you look at British History online and visitations oh Herefordshire. They were at Hampton Court in Hope under Dinmore.

Hi, Ann,

Thanks for letting me know about this. It's amazing how many families had holdings all over the country, allocating them to younger sons or distant cousins or giving them away as part of marriage settlements.

I’ve been wondering whether my Fulhams might be connected with them or the Berringtons or Goodmans. Not found a link yet unfortunately.

Regards, Ann
