      Dysart was the son of Sir Lionel Tollemache, 3rd Baronet, a ndElizabeth, 2nd Countess of Dysart. Educated at Queens' Co llege,Cambridge, Lionel succeeded to his father's baronetc y in 1669.[1] Theencumbrance of his paternal estate by deb t bred in him a habit offrugality which was not shed in lat er years.[2] In 1673, he contestedSuffolk as a Tory; defeat ed by Sir Samuel Barnardiston, 1st Baronet,he had the retur n falsified by the sheriff, Sir William Soame, andtook hi s seat in Parliament. An election committee declaredBarnard iston elected, and he obtained 1,000 pounds damages fromHun tingtower in a suit before the King's Bench, but the verdic t wasoverturned by the Court of Exchequer Chamber. Huntingt ower was made afreeman of Eye in 1675. He briefly served a s Member of Parliament forOrford in 1679 as a member of th e Habeas Corpus Parliament. In 1685,he was again returned f or that borough and made portman of Orford, anoffice he hel d until about 1709.[2]

      On 30 September 1680, he married Grace Wilbraham, the daugh ter andcoheir of Sir Thomas Wilbraham, 3rd Baronet.[3] The y had fivechildren:

      Lionel Tollemache, Lord Huntingtower (16821712)
      Lady Elizabeth Tollemache (d. 6 August 1746), married Sir R obertSalusbury Cotton, 3rd Baronet
      Lady Catherine Tollemache (d. 17 January 1754), married Joh n Brydges,Marquess of Carnarvon (17031727) on 1 Septembe r 1724
      Lady Mary Tollemache (d. 2 December 1715)
      Lady Grace Tollemache (d. 27 May 1719)

      Huntingtower went out of Parliament again upon the fall o f James II.However, he was returned for Suffolk in 1698, an d generally supportedTory principles. In that year, he succ eeded his mother to become Earlof Dysart. In 1702, he was a ppointed Vice-Admiral of Suffolk andbecame (until 1716) a f reeman of Dunwich, and in 1703, he wasappointed Lord Lieute nant of Suffolk. He was also named High Stewardof Ipswich t hat year, an office he held until his death. As LordLieuten ant, he purged moderate Churchmen from lieutenancy offices . Hewas Mayor of Orford during the summer of 1704. His supp ort for the"Tack" of the Occasional Conformity Bill led t o his removal from hiscounty offices in 1705. Campaigning o n the basis of his support forthe Tack, he was returned fo r Suffolk again in 1705. As a Scottishpeer, he was forced t o leave the House of Commons by the Acts of Union1707.[2] H e was offered a barony in the Peerage of Great Britain byQu een Anne upon her accession, but declined.[3]
