Burkes Peerage says that Thomas Foley was elected in 1734, not merely in 1742. It looks as if an election has been omitted from the list, but I do not have the sources to verify what is wrong.
I cannot idenfiy a Thomas Foley (listed here as IV) who lived 1778-1822. The dates of the 3rd baron were 1780-1833.
Also could some one with access to the sources improve the list of MPs for the city of Hereford, which seems very incomplete - or is there an article that I ahve missed? Peterkingiron (talk) 00:26, 8 March 2008 (UTC)
Thomas Foley (d. 1749) was returned for Hereford in 1734. He did not stand in 1741, but was returned for Herefordshire in 1742 in a by-election to succeed the 3rd Earl of Oxford and Earl Mortimer, late acceded to the peerage. Choess (talk) 01:35, 8 March 2008 (UTC)
