Thomas Stanley of Grangegorman
Sir Thomas Stanley (1626 – 27 August 1674) was an English politician who sat in the Parliament of Ireland MP for County Tipperary and Waterford and Louth in the Restoration Parliament, 1661–62. He joined the Privy Council of Ireland in March 1674.
Along with another parliamentarian Sir Anthony Morgan, Sir Thomas was implicated in the notorious Blood plot of 1663, in which Thomas Blood had planned to kidnap the Duke of Ormond, the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, from Dublin Castle. Sir Thomas and Sir Anthony wrote "obsequious letters" to Ormond proclaiming their innocence and devotion to him.
