Foley was Member of Parliament for Weobley fron 1691 to 1698 and from 1699 to 1700. He was then MP for Hereford from 1701 to 1722. He was subsequently MP for Stafford from 1722 to 1727 and again from 1734 until his death. Throughout this period, he was the leading ironmaster in the Forest of Dean. Initially this business was managed by John Wheeler and then by William Rea, until Rea was sacked in 1725. From that time the number of ironworks operated by his business, latterly without outside partners gradually declined.
