Sir Thomas MOMPESSON d.1640

The Mompesson armorial stamp (British Armorial Bindings)

Biographical Note

Of Salisbury and Little Bathampton, Wiltshire, son of Thomas Mompesson (d.1588). Admitted at Lincoln's Inn 1588. His son, also Thomas (1630-1701), was MP for Salisbury and a number of other Wiltshire boroughs between 1661 and 1701.


The Armorials Database records half a dozen books, with imprint dates between 1492 and 1617, with a Mompesson stamp; these are attributed to the first Sir Thomas, but it is not certain which family member (or members) it should be associated with.
