Per L&M Companion:

A financial expert, and a colleague of Ashley (Shaftesbury)
( http://www.pepysdiary.com/encyclo… ) at the Prize Office, where he was a Commissioner, 1665 - 7. (He had a similar post in 1656.) After service in the parliamentary army he had done well out of speculation in confiscated Irish land, and had also gathered to himself several lucrative posts -- in 1659 as auditor for the army accounts, in 1666 as Comptroller of the Excise and in 1669 as farmer of the Irish revenue.

Phil kindly checked the correct spelling of this man's name for me.

L&M say Kingdon -- with two Ns -- not an M at the end.
