Sir Baynham Throckmorton, 3rd Baronet Sir Baynham Throckmorton, 3rd Baronet (11 December 1629 – 31 July 1681) was an English politician who sat in the House of Commons at various times between 1656 and 1679.
Sir Baynham Throckmorton, 2nd Baronet In 1659 like many former active Cavaliers Throckmorton was held in preventative custody as a precaution against a Royalist and Presbyterian revolt. Parliamentary forces were successful in preventing a country-wide uprising and only the county of Cheshire partook in Booth's rebellion led by Sir George Booth. Sir Baynham was released on £2,000 bail.
Sir Baynham Throckmorton, 2nd Baronet On the death in 1635 of his wife Margaret Hopton aged 25, Throckmorton erected a very costly monument in a variety of coloured marbles to her memory in The Gaunt's Chapel, Bristol. The Gaunt's was a charitable foundation established in 1220 by Maurice de Gaunt (died 1230), who was a member of the Berkeley family of Berkeley Castle. The Berkeleys maintained close links with the foundation even after Dissolution of the Monasteries (16th century) and it appears that the Throckmorton monument was placed here on account of Sir Baynham's descent from his grandmother Elizabeth Berkleley, wife of Sir Thomas Throckmorton, the daughter of Sir Richard Berkeley (died 1604) of Stoke Gifford, Gloucestershire, whose monument is also in The Gaunt's Chapel. The monument is unusual in that it features the still living Sir Baynham, who would survive a further 29 years. He is shown in front of his wife, reclining and dressed in armour with long flowing hair. Over his shoulders he wears a wide lace collar, with knee-plates and wide-toed boots. His wife reclines behind him, half-raised and leaning on her right elbow, looking out towards the viewer. She is richly dressed and with one hand grasps that of her husband whilst with the other she holds their infant son, who is according to Barker "quaintly dressed". The monument contains the following inscription, much mutilated and worn, on two small rectangular black marble panels beneath the ceiling of the canopy:
Sir Baynham Throckmorton, 2nd Baronet "Dedicated to the never dying memory of the Lady Margaret Throckmorton, the late wife of Sir Baynham Throckmorton, of Clowerwall, in the County of Glouc., Baronet, and youngest daughter of Mr. Robert Hopton, of that ancient and worthie family of the Hoptons of Witham, in the County of Somerset, Esquire, who lifted up her soule to God upon the 18th day of August in the year of our Lord 1635 and of her age above 25".
Sir Baynham Throckmorton, 3rd Baronet Throckmorton married firstly Mary Garton, daughter of Giles Garton of Billinghurst, Sussex on 12 December 1652. He married secondly Katherine Edgecombe, daughter of Piers Edgecumbe of Mount Edgecombe on 21 December 1669. He had a daughter from each marriage and his daughter Katherine by the second marriage married Thomas Wylde, MP for Worcester.

Sir Baynham Throckmorton, 2nd Baronet In July 1660, following the Restoration, Throckmorton was appointed an oyer and terminer on the Oxford circuit. He won a seat as one of the two MP's for Gloucestershire in the Cavalier Parliament, although his election was not confirmed until 19 April 1662, due to his having been listed as a friend by Philip Wharton, 4th Baron Wharton, who was now highly distrusted by the ruling party having been a Parliamentarian during the Civil War, a Puritan and a favourite of Oliver Cromwell. Throckmorton was active from the start and was appointed to 134 committees.
Sir Baynham Throckmorton, 2nd Baronet Throckmorton died on 28 May 1664 and was buried the next day at St Margaret's, Westminster. He had probably intended to be buried with his wife in The Gaunts, Bristol, but as Barker speculated "the fates disposed otherwise". A monumental inscription in his memory exists in the parish church of Newland, Forest of Dean, in which parish is situated Clearwell. He was succeeded by his son and heir Sir Baynham Throckmorton, 3rd Baronet.
Sir Baynham Throckmorton, 3rd Baronet Throckmorton was the son of Sir Baynham Throckmorton, 2nd Baronet (c. 1606–64) and his wife Margaret Hopton, daughter of Robert Hopton.
Sir Baynham Throckmorton, 3rd Baronet Throckmorton was knighted on 28 May 1660. In June 1660 he was elected MP for Wotton Basset in a by-election to the Convention Parliament. Also in 1660, he was appointed Deputy Constable of St Briavel's, Deputy Warden of the Forest of Dean, Keeper of the Gawle in Dean Forest and Riding Forester and aleconner in Dean Forest. In 1664 succeeded to the baronetcy on the death of his father and was elected MP for Gloucestershire in the Cavalier Parliament in succession to his father. He sat until 1679. He was popular with the Forest of Dean miners, and was elected a "Free Miner" of the Forest of Dean in 1668 and sat as judge of the courts of mine law at Clearwell, his principal manor, in 1668, 1676 and 1680. However, in 1670 there were reports of a violent dispute between Throckmorton and his neighbours.
