  Sir Timothy sat for Horsham 30 George III. (1790) and for New Shoreham in four Parliaments as above. On the 18th June, 1804, we find his name in a minority on " the additional force bill " and in a majority on Mr. Whitbread's motion against Lord Melville, late Treasurer of the Navy, April 8th, 1805. Sir Timothy died 24th April, 1844, and was succeeded in the Baronetcy  
Sir Cecil preferred a claim to the ancient Barony of De la Zoucho, in right of his mother and was eventually summoned to Parliament in the dignity originally created in 1272, when William la Zouche was called to Parliament as Baron de la Zouch or Souche. From him the Barony came in regular succession to the 11th Baron, Edward la Zouche, who, dying in It 25, left two daughters-Elizabeth, wife of Sir William Tate of De la Pre Abbet, in Northamptonshire, M.P., and Mary, wife, first of Thomas Leighton, Esq., and secondly of William Connard, Esq., between whom and their descendants the Barony fell into abeyance until called out by the Crown 27th August, 1815, in favour of Sir Cecil, whose mother, Susannah Hedges, was maternally great-great-great-granddaughter of Sir William Tate by Elizabeth Zouche, eldest daughter and co-heiress of the last Baron.
