The Coningsby Family
The Coningsby family has a long association with Meldreth, from the 1700s to the twentieth century.
It was Edward Coningsby, the convict, who sparked my initial interest in the Meldreth family.
The Coningsby family is descended from an ancient family hailing from Coningsby in Lincolnshire. Unfortunately, despite a great number of attempts, I have been unable to link the Meldreth branch to the main line family tree which I have going back to 1100. I have, on the other hand, managed to trace many descendants of the Meldreth/Melbourn branch, many of whom live in Australia, right through to the present day.
