Abstract :
In a paper on the wall paintings at North Mymms Park, published in Archaeological journal (London), 1994, 151, p. 369-399, the authors identified the 'tenth Worthy' as Guy of Warwick, but were unable to find any connection between the Coningesby family and the Earls of Warwick. However, the Coningesby family connection with Guy of Warwick is recorded in a pedigree of the family in the Lincolnshire Record Office. The will of Sir Henry Coningesby, knight, indicates that he built the present house at North Mymms Park, probably in the 1580s. Suggests that the 'Warwick' worthy depicts Sir Henry's 13th c. ancestor, Sir Roger Coningesby, knight, Steward of the house to Guy of Warwick. There was a connection by marriage between the house at North Mymms, Hertfordshire and Nether Hall, Roydon, Essex, where similar wall paintings had existed. The association between the Coningesby family, when at the Manor of Weld and the Cutts family, when at Salisbury Hall, both in the parish of Shenley, Hertfordshire, probably accounts for the similarity of the frieze in the Oak bedroom and the frieze in Childerley Hall, Cambridgeshire. ;
