Family and Education
Little is known about this Member, although he may have been related to the Geoffrey Thoresby who, in 1347, acquired a rent of 4s. p.a. from property in Grimsby. In 1398 a John Thoresby witnessed a deed at Lincoln for the chapter of the cathedral. It was probably he who, some 16 years later, bound himself to pay 20 marks to a clerk named Nicholas Wymbush and John, his brother. He is described on this occasion as coming from Lincolnshire, and he did indeed offer property there as security for the transaction.
