I have some information about these two Barons as recorded in Burke's "Extinct and Dormant Baronetcies".
"In the 12th of King Henry II.
Robert Foliot, upon the assessment of the old aid for marrying the king's dau. certified that he had fifteen knights' fees, which his ancestors had held from the Conquest. This feudal lord m. Margery, dau. and heiress of Richard de Reincurt, Lord of Sutton, co. Bedford, whereupon King Henry II confirmed to him the man of Burton, in the co. of Northampton, and all other the lands and honour of Guy de Reincurt, ancestor of the said Richard.
He was s. by his son, Richard Foliot, living in 1199, who left an only dau. and heiress,
Margery, who m. Whyschard Ledet, son of Christian Ledet, Lady of Langtone, co. Leicester. The inheritance of the lady (Margery Foliot) was litigated in the 8th Richard I by Thomas Foliot, Richard de Hidon, Emme de Bolerel and Geffrey de Barinton, grand-children of Robert Foliot, and the suit was pending in the reign of King John.

With this heiresss this branch of the family appears to have terminated, but many of the same race were distinguished for several years afterwards, until the reign of Edward I, when Jordan Foliot was summoned to parliament as a Baron from 23 June 1295 to 25 January 1299, leaving a son, Richard Foliot, at fifteen, of whom nothing is known, but that he left, besides a son, Richard, two daus.,
Margery, m. before 1330, Hugh de Hastings, a younger son, (by his 2nd marriage) of John, Lord Bergavennay.
Margaret, m. to John de Camoys.
The son, Richard Foliot d.s.p. in 1326, and the barony remains in abeyance between the descendants of his two sisters.
Arns: Gu., a bend, arg.
Note: Gilbert Foliot, bishop of Hertford, anno 1149 and of London, in 1161, is another eminent person of this name.

The Rt. Hon. Sir Henry Folliott, governer of Ballyshannon, co. Sligo (son of Thomas Folliott, Esq. of Pyrton. co Worcester, by Katherine, his 2nd wife, dau. of William Lygon, Esq., and the lineal descendant of a younger branch of the old baronial family of Folliott, which was established in England at the Conquest) was knighted by Robert, Earl of Essex, lord-lieutenant of Ireland, 6 September 1599, and commanded a regiment at the victory of Kinsale. Subsequently he was raised to the peerage of Ireland, as Baron Folliott of Ballyshannon, co. Donegal, 22 January 1619. His lordship m. Anne, dau. of Sir William Strode, of Stoke-under-Hampden in Somersetshire, and by heir (who m. 2ndly, Robert, Earl of Roscommon) had issue."

I'll gladly type out the lineage from then on if anyone is interested. The names which appear include King of Roscommon, Baron Kingston, Wingfield, Trevor, Ponsonby of Bessborough, French, Soley, Walker, Sandford, Deuchards, Powell, Jones, Mason, Baugh, Dudley.

This title became extinct in 1716.
Additional note in the publication:
"The Ffolliotts now of Hollybrook House, co. Sligo descend from a common ancestor with the Lords Folliott of Ballyshannon."

Hello Jan;

If you have the detailed descendancy of Thomas Folliott and his wife, Kathryn Lygon,and if it would be easy for you to forward, I would love to have it. I descend through their son, Sir John Folliott who married Elizabeth Alymer, through their son Rev.Edward Folliott. His daughter, Elizabeth,later married Capt. Charles Hansford. That was my line.
