^Most sources date Minehead's enfranchisement from 1563, which seems clearly implied by the House of Commons Journals, but Browne Willis gives two names (Thomas Fitzwilliams and John Fowler) as the town's representatives in the 1559 Parliament. Sir John Neale notes that the names differ from those given for 1563 "which normally is a sign of reliability"
^This is the name given by Cobbett, whereas Browne Willis lists "Tho. Wentworth, Kt". There were two Thomas Wentworths in the House, but both sat for other constituencies, as Browne Willis correctly also records - "Tho. Wentworth, Kt. and Bart." for Yorkshire and "Tho. Wentworth Esq" for Oxford City. While it is possible that either of these might also have been elected for Minehead and chosen to sit for their other constituency, allowing Lloyd to be elected in their place, Browne Willis usually records this, and neither could correctly be described as "Tho. Wentworth, Kt" at that time, although of course an error is perfectly possible.
^Popham was also elected for Bath, which he chose to represent, and never sat for Minehead
