    • 18. Over two decades later, in the early 1750s, Bingley's widow felt able to ask George II for a barony for her grandson upon his coming of age. Therefore, it is near certain that some form of promise had been made. B.L.Add.32732 f.588; H.M.C.Egmont Diary i p.11; H.M.C.Carlisle p.67; James J.CartwrightThe Wentworth Papers (1833) p.133.

    • 33. It is possible that in part George II was toying with the Pelhams showing them that he was prepared to work with moderate tories, thus showing that he knew he was not dependent upon the Old Corps.
    • 34. To add to the Bruce link, he was a Wiltshire landowner, although this is perhaps taking it too far. Henry Fox may have played a part in this because his family was seated at Redlynch in the south of the county. Ilchester had started his political career as a tory, during the early 1730s. Brother Henry may well have undergone a similar change before entering parliament in 1735.
