Thomas Dingley or Dineley (died 1695) was an English antiquary born about the middle of the seventeenth century. Dingley left in manuscript a journal of his travails. In 1680 he visited Ireland, perhaps in a military capacity, travelling from Dublin to Carlow, and from there to Limerick and Bunratty. Abbeys, church monuments and castles occupied by English settlers attracted his attention and were included in the journal of his travels. Dineley’s drawings, though very valuable, are not always accurate and need to be treated with caution.
