Glynne resided on the Oxfordshire estates settled on him at the time of his marriage by his father. His name appears on Lord Wharton’s list of the Convention as a friend to be influenced by his father, and he was doubtless a court supporter, but he left no trace on its records. He may have become a Whig collaborator under James II, when he was recommended for local office in Oxfordshire. He was buried at Bicester on 8 Sept. 1690. His son, the second baronet, was returned for Oxford University in 1698 and for Woodstock in 1702 as a Tory.
