Families covered: Coney (Cony) of Bassingthorpe, Cony of Corby, Cony of Hanthorpe, Coney of Kirton, Cony of Whissendine

Maddison spells the family name as "Cony" throughout but most (though not all) cross-references from elsewhere in the database use the spelling "Coney". As the latter appears to be more commonly used nowadays we (somewhat arbitrarily) adopt that spelling for some but not all of the following.
