About Anthony Throckmorton, of Corse Court

Anthony Throckmorton

  • Birth: Circa 1542 - Of, Corse Court, Gloucestershire, England
  • Parents: Thomas Throckmorton, Margaret Whittington


Much less is known about Anthony than about his older brother the MP, and he is easily confused with a cousin Anthony Throckmorton Anthony Throckmorton, MP who was the youngest son of Sir George Throckmorton. (And, perhaps, vice versa.)



"(Thomas) Throckmorton died on 31 Jan. 1607, ‘in happy and peaceable manner’, according to his tombstone. In his will, dated 17 Dec. 1600, he commended his soul to God, ‘beseeching Him that for His Son Christ Jesu’s sake, He will have mercy on the same’. His body was not to be ‘opened or bowelled’, but buried ‘without pomp or unnecessary charges’. The bulk of his property he left to his surviving son, with small annuities to his daughter, and to his ‘right honest and loving brother’ Anthony Throckmorton, who, with Sir Henry Poole, was named as overseer of the will. He was buried at Tortworth, his tomb bearing the inscription, ‘I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course ... henceforth is laid up for me a crown of righteousness’.5
