?s. of Hugh Aglionby m. Cicely, issue.

Offices Held


If, as is likely, Aglionby was the son of the mint official Hugh Aglionby, he probably owed his return at Beverley to his kinsman Edward Aglionby of Carlisle, who was joint comptroller at Carlisle with the 1st Lord Wharton, and an associate also of the 2nd Lord Wharton. This latter was high steward of the manor of Beverley at the time of the 1572 election. Aglionby also had a connexion with the Earl of Leicester through his brother-in-law William Glasier. There is no evidence that Aglionby himself ever lived in the north. He drew up his will as ‘of Hornsey, Middlesex’ on 20 Aug. 1581. The will, proved in January 1584, appointed his wife executrix, and his ‘dear and special friends’ Hugh Cholmondeley and Glasier overseers.
