I have the CD for St Mary, Old Swinford but there is no MI for Thomas Foley of Witley. 

Within the MI pages there is a heading Section I Interior.  Then numbered 57 is 'List of Rectors & Patrons of Old Swinford'.  There are three columns, Rector, Year & Patron.  The entries featuring Thomas are as follows:

Edward Eccleston 1673 Thomas Foley of Witley
Simon Ford D.D. 1676 Thomas Foley of Witley
William Halifax D.D. 1699 Thomas Foley of Witley
GIBSON: Leicestershire, Durham. MORGAN: Glamorgan, Durham, Ohio. DAVIS/DAVIES/DAVID: Glamorgan, Ohio.  JACKSON: East Yorks, North Yorks, Durham. TAYLOR: North Yorks. BOURDAS: North Yorks. JEFFREYS: Worcestershire & Northumberland. CHEESMOND: Durham/Northumberland. WINTER: Durham/Northumberland. SNOWBALL: Durham.

Many thanks Jomot, that explains the 1676 reference.
