Tamworth, John -1569)

John Tamworth of Sandon in Essex, Sutton in Lincolnshire, and St Botolph Bishopgate, was the only son of Thomas Tamworth, and Elizabeth, daughter and heir of Philip Denkaring. His father was the son of John Tamworth of Leake by his second wife, Katherine, daughter and heir of John Dandelowe; and his mother was the daughter of Elizabeth Finch. As he went abroad during the reign of Mary, he was probably a Protestant. At the beginning of Elizabeth's reign he was received into royal favour, holding the post of Clerk of Windsor Castle, and Receiver General of Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Oxford, Groom of the Privy Chamber and Keeper of the Privy Purse from 1559, and Master of the Toyles from 1560, and Receiver General for Lincolnshire and for Lincoln in 1559 and 1562. He married in 1562, Christian, daughter of William Walsingham, and sister of Sir Francis. They had one daughter. He entered Parliament as Member for Boston in Lincolnshire at a by-lection 1563 1567, but served only the one term. In 1566 he accompanied Queen Elizabeth to Oxford where he was made an M.A. He died at Fulham 19 April 1569 and was buried at St Botolph's Aldersgate.
