  i. Sir Thomas Canninge, Mayor of London (a 1456, 2nd son)
  There was confusion in the past (hopefully no longer) concerning the Thomas who married the heiress of Foxcote and his relationship with the Thomas who was Mayor of London. Commoners identifies him as son of John son of John who was brother of Jeffrey (father of Sir Thomas, Mayor of London, and William of Bristol). BLG1886 shows him (Thomas) as son of John eldest son of John whose younger sons were Sir Thomas (Mayor of London) & William (Mayor of Bristol). We are following BP1934.
