Thomas Chaplin Esq of Henderley proposed Society for Constitutional Information 13.6.1788 by John Cartwright 2nded Lord Sempill

Probably the Thomas Chaplin  of Enderby who was sheriff of Lincs in 1799. Thomas Chaplin Esq = St Geo Han Sq 31.3.1788 Elizabeth only dau of late Godfrey Webster, Baronet. He died in 1780 and was succeeded by her brother Godfrey who was Whig MP for Seaford 1786-90 (see my entry for Oldfield, Thomas Hinton Burley). The will PCC 1804 of Thomas Chaplin of Riseholme, Lincs mentioned his wife Elizabeth and his mother-in-law Lady Webster, and estates at Blankney but not Enderby. Mavis Enderby is some way east of Lincoln, while Riseholme, Blankney and Marnham (John Cartwright's seat) were all nearer Lincoln
