| HE following list of the Recusants and Noncommuni- 
cants in Yorkshire in .1 604 is preserved in a folio paper 
book among the Rawlinson Manuscripts (B. 452) in the 
Bodleian Library. It is slightly imperfect. Two leaves are 
lost at the beginning, and several others have been much 
injured by damp. The editor is not aware that any other 
copy of this return is in existence except the transcript taken 
by his own hand, from which the accompanying imprint has 
been made. Of its authenticity there can be no doubt. The 


handwriting and the minute family details it discloses, are 
each alone sufficient to prove that it is a genuine return. Of 
its usefulness or interest to modern readers, there may well be 
more than one opinion. As to its genealogical importance 
there can be no doubt, but there are many, and that not among 
the entirely uninstructed classes only, who look upon such 
knowledge, when it does not relate to persons whose names 
figure in the peerage, or what they are pleased to call the 
History of England, as well nigh worthless ; with' such 
people it would show great want of humility to argue. There 
is, however, another reason far different from the genealogical, 
or purely antiquarian one, why this record is worthy of 
consideration. Although we have of late years made some 


steps in that direction, we have by no means as yet got 
rid of the vile habit of seeing all things in the past through 
the coloured medium of our own theological prejudices. The 
history of the changes of religion in the sixteenth century, 
of the triumphs of the victors, and the misfortunes of the 
vanquished, has in every country in Europe been the source 
of a mendacious literature, perfectly unique in its kind. The 
advocates of change, and the adherents of the old order of 
things, however they might differ on other matters, were in 
perfect harmony as to their plan of writing history. In 
England we have suffered most from the unscrupulousness 
of those who defended the Reformation, because here their 
cause triumphed, and the Protestant authors were consequently 
more numerous and more widely read, but the spirit on each 
side has been the same. "An adequate parallel to their 
bitterness, their shabbiness, their shirking, their habitual 
disregard of honour and veracity, is hardly afforded even by 
the so-called ' Anti- Jacobin ' press during the revolutionary 
and Imperial wars."*. 

It is not too much to say that there is hardly any one, 
except those few who have made the religious history of their 
country an express object of study, who has a true notion of 
what was the state of the Roman Catholic population of 
England during the reign of Elizabeth and the two first kings 
of the house of Stewart. 

The Editor has not endeavoured in any manner to supply 
the deficiency. The few notes he has given are almost solely 
genealogical, but he would not be doing his duty if he

neglected to draw attention to two things which are specially 
worthy of observation. Firstly, that although this list does 
not include the whole of the places within the county of 
York, almost all the old historical families of the shire are 
represented therein ; and secondly, that the inquisitorial 
proceedings of the government officials were not confined, 
. as so many fancy them to have been, to persons who, from 
their high position, had it in their power factiously to oppose 
the Government in Church and State, but that poor farm 
labourers, servant maids, tailors, and fishermen were, as much 
as their social superiors, the objects of strict scrutiny. 

That the cruel penal laws which disgraced our statute book 
were not always carried out in their full severity to the 
letter is certain, but the amount of bloodshed they occasioned 
has been much underrated, and the domestic misery of which 
they were the cause, scarcely even dwelt upon. The perse- 
cutors and their victims have alike passed away, for the most 
part unremembered ; well content, no doubt, "to be as though, 
they had not been, to be found in the register of God, not in 
the record of man."* But is it not fitting that we some- 
times should turn our mind from the luxuries of this self- 
indulgent time to those well-nigh forgotten ancestors of ours, 
who, for the sake of what they believed to be the truth, were 
content to put in peril, and oftentimes to sacrifice, all the 
objects which are commonly thought to make life desirable ? 

I have received assistance in various genealogical matters 
from Thomas Burton, Esq., Charles Jackson, Esq., David

Vnreverent receiving Mathew Haigh yeman at Easter last 
when he should haue received the comunion, the bread being 
given him, did not eat it, but conveyed it into his book and 
likewise did not drink ye wine, as him selfe hath synce re- 
ported, but onely toke it into his mouthe.t 

* The name of the place has perished. It is no doubt Kexborough, pronounced 
Kesper, hi the parish of Darton. Thomas Savile, of Kexborough, gent., 3rd son of 
Nicholas Savile, of Newhall and the Haigh, in Kexborough, by his wife Jane, 
daughter of Thomas Foxcroft. Thomas married Mary, daughter of Thomas 
Burdet of Birthwait, and by her had issue two sons, Francis (his heir) and Thomas, 
the person mentioned above. The first ancestor of this noble family who can be 
proved by record evidence is a Sir John Savile, who flourished temp. Edward I. 
There is a story to be found in many places, that the Yorkshire Saviles were a 
branch of the Italian house of Savelli. It is perhaps impossible to disprove it, 
but we may safely consign the legend to the waste-paper basket. It does not bear 
a single note of authenticity. The family, there is little reason to doubt, took its 
name from Savile hall, in the township of Dodworth and parish of Silkston, near 
the northern branch of the river Dove. Arms, argent, on a bend sable 3 owls

have claimed a Pictish lineage for the Haighs of Bemerside. Their authenticated 
pedigree begins with a Petrus de Haga, who, in all probability, took his name 
from the enclosure with which his home was fenced about. The prophecy attri- 
buted to Thomas the Rimer, 

"Betide, betide, whate'er betide, 
Haigh shall be Haigh of Bemerside." 

has given the Scottish family a wide-spread fame, such as their yeomen or peasant 
namesakes of Yorkshire have no claim to.

* Michael Wentworth, son and heir of Thomas Wentworth, of Mendom, in 
Suffolk, by his wife Susan, daughter of Christopher Hopton, of Armley. Michael 
Wentworth purchased about the year 1599 the estate of Wolley from the Wood- 
ruffe family, who had possessed it from the time of Richard II., or earlier. Richard, 
the last of the line who is given in the printed pedigrees, married Elizabeth, 
daughter and co-heiress of Thomas Percy, seventh Earl of Northumberland, by 
whom he had issue. 

f Beatrix, daughter of Thomas Burdett of Birthwait. Her husband's father 
married Beatrix, daughter of Sir Thomas Waterton of Walton Hall. The eldest 
son of Thomas and Beatrix was Sir Charles Barnby, Kt. He married Hester, 
daughter of Daniel Disney, of Norton Disney, co. Lincoln. It would seem that 
this lady was a Roman Catholic in 1624. Mr. Hunter gives, without quoting any 
authority, a list of the recusants presented in this parish in 1624. The names are 
Lady Barnby, Ann Barnby, wife of Mr. Barnby, Isabell Barnby, a daughter of 
Thomas Barnby, Esq., James Beaumont, Ann Beaumont, his daughter, and 
Margaret Rodes. Hunter, S. Yorks., ii. 233, 234. 

$ This Arthur Burdett does not appear in any pedigree that I have seen. He 
was probably a near relative, perhaps brother of Beatrix Burdett, above mentioned.

their education at the colleges established abroad, for the purpose of providing

clergy for the English mission. There were institutions for this purpose at Douay, 
Rome, Valladolid, Seville, Madrid, St. Lucar, St. Omer, Esquerchin, Paris, and 
Lisbon. The oldest of these was Douay, founded in 1568 by William Allen, S.T.P. 
cardinal and archbishop of Mechlin. The priests educated at these places were 
called seminary priests, to distinguish them from the Jesuits and members of other 
religious orders, who were employed in ministering to the spiritual -wants of 
the English catholics during the times of persecution. Some interesting Notices of 
the English Colleges and Convents established on the Continent after the Dissolution 
of the Religious Houses in England, were compiled by the late Hon. Edward Petre, 
and edited after his death by the Rev. F. C. Hussenbeth. It is much to be 
regretted that the latter gentleman, who is so thoroughly well fitted to the task, 
did not add to the work from his own stores, and give us, what is still so much 
wanted, a history of our foreign religious houses, which should take rank with 
Dodsworth and Dugdale's great work on those that were swept away by the great 
Tudor revolt from Rome.

* The family of Reresby, or Reisby, as it has been sometimes spelt, are said to 
have been of Lincolnshire extraction, and to take their name from a place in that 
county. This is, however, very doubtful. They were settled at Thriberg, in the 
reign of Edward III. Sir Thomas Reresby, Kt., was a justice of peace in the 
4Oth Elizabeth ; it is not therefore probable that he was a Roman Catholic. He 
died in 1619. His wife was Mary (or according to Dugdale, Margery), daughter of 
Sir John Monson, of South Carlton, co. Lincoln, Kt. Three of Sir Thomas's 
paternal aunts had intermarried with members of Lincolnshire families of gentle 
blood : Ellen to Marmaduke Tyrwhitt, of Scotter, at which place she was buried 
6th April, 1608 ; Elizabeth to Francis Copledike of Harrington, son of Sir John 
Copledike, Kt, and his wife Elizabeth Littlebury ; and Margaret to Ralf Bowyer 
of Bottesford. Scotter, Par. Reg., Dugdale, Visitation of Yorks., 1665-6, p. 182 ;

* A family of the name of Ashley, which ranked with the gentry, were living 
at Todwick Grange in the I7th century. They did not register their pedigree at 
the visitations. This person is probably one of them. In those days there was 
nothing necessarily menial in the word servant.

was baptized at Sheffield, 5th December, 1568, and died at Doncaster, 14$!

$ In the 43rd Elizabeth this estate, " the lands of John Gifford, a recusant," were 
leased to Henry Gifford for 21 years. The estate came into the possession of this 
family in the reign of Mary, and seems to have passed from them at about the 
period when this return was made. It is not a great stretch of probability to sup- 
pose that John Gifford had taken this long journey from the south to make 
arrangements for the alienation of the property. Sir Richard Hutton, Serjeant-at 
law, one of the judges in the great ship-money case who gave their judgment 
against the king, became the next proprietor. Hunter, ii. 142.

* The Bellamy family were of Markham in Nottinghamshire. Robert Bellamy 
of Markham and of Lambcote Grange, in the parish of Stainton, was settled in 
the latter place in 1570. His son, Original Bellamy, died 2Oth September, 1619, 
aged 80. It is this gentleman's son, also quaintly named Original, who is 
mentioned in the text. Their estate of Lambcote Grange had been part of the 
domain of the neighbouring abbey of Roche. Hunter, South Yorks., i. 259. 

The Christian name Original was used by the Babbingtons of Rampton. Lin- 
colnshire antiquaries will remember Mr. Original Peart, the Puritan Burgess of 
Lincoln. Oryginald Smyth was fined at a court of the manor of Kirton in 
Lindsey for an assault upon John Base in the xx year of Elizabeth.

I have not seen evidence to prove which of them was alive at the date of the

and two daughters. Sir Thomas Manners died in 1591? and after his death, his 
widow Theodocia, married William Brad well, gent. They were both living in 1605. 
Turnham Hall, in the parish of Hemmingbrough, was left by the will of the first 
earl to his son Sir Thomas. It is probable that his widow enjoyed the survivor- 
ship, and that it was here that she and her husband were living when this catalogue 
of papists was made out. 

* One of the Beaumonts of Whitley. Arms, Gules, a lion rampant between eight

* This was a member of an old Lincolnshire family. They were originally of 
Poolham Manor, near Horncastle ; but subsequently, by the marriage of Richard 
Thimbleby with Elizabeth, sister and co-heiress of Sir Godfrey Hilton of Irnham, 
that estate came into the family. The family were always adherents of the Roman 
Catholic religion. At the restoration of the old faith under Mary, Mrs. Eliza- 
beth Thimbleby, a nun, lent a cope and a chasuble to the church of Irnham, which 
were reclaimed by Mr. John Thimbleby on the accession of Elizabeth. The John

Thimbleby mentioned in the text was probably the grandson of the above. The 
male line of the Lincolnshire Thimblebys ended in 1 712, on the death of another 
John Thimbleby of Irnham. His heiress, Mary, had married Thomas Clifford, 
of Chillington, co. Stafford. The estate passed out of her descendants' hands, by 
sale, but a few years ago.

The Pulleyns of Lincolnshire and Yorkshire have been said to be sprung from 
Flemish Protestant settlers who came over with Sir Cornelius Vermeuyden to 
drain the level of Hatfield Chase, in the reign of Charles I. This entry alone would 
disprove the assertion. The name is of constant occurrence in records from an early 
period. Its derivation is obscure. Perhaps the Anglo-Norman Pulleyn, French 
Poulain, a colt, is its parent. Pullen is an old English word for poultry e.g., 
" Item almanner of pullen with Dukks, vjs. viijd." Invent. Jofi. Nevill de

to prove which. He died I3th November, 1615. His son and heir Ralf was

by his first wife, Mary, daughter of Roger Nowell, the father of Sir Ingram 
Hopton, Knt, who was baptized 23rd February, 1614, and slain at Winceby fight 
near Horncastle nth October, 1643. A lozenge-shaped piece of canvas, like 
a hatchment, still hangs in Horncastle Church, on which are painted his arms 
and an inscription setting forth how he met his death "in the attempt of seiz- 
ing the arch-rebel in the bloody skirmish near Winceby." No name is given, 
but of course by the arch-rebel is meant the future Lord Protector. Ducatus 
Lead., 188. 

* The author of the Patronymica Britannica derives this surname from the office 
of Dykeward. It much more probably comes from some local name.

* Sir Stephen Tempest, Knt, had two wives. By the first, Anne, daughter of 
Edmund Eltofts of Farnhill, he had daughters only ; by the second, Katherine, 
daughter of Henry Lawson of Neesham hi the bishopric of Durham, he had nine 
sons, among them Major John Tempest, who was slain in Ireland at the taking of 
Tredagh. This family have always remained attached to the old religion. 

t The Pudseys were a very ancient family settled at Bolton-in-Craven before 
the wars of the Roses. Their arms were vert a chevron between three mullets or. 
The Ambrose in the text was probably the person whom Dugdale describes as 
Ambrose Pudsey of High Close, in St. John's parish, who married (i) a daughter 
of .... Plaice, of Dinsdale in the bishopric of Durham ; and (2) Jane, daughter 
of Edward Wilkinson of Northallerton. Ambrose was however a common 
Christian name in the family, so that the identification is by no means certain.

* This strange surname is not in Mr. Lower's collection. The termination shows 
it to be local. Probably it is a conniption of Swinedalehurstj the wood of the dale 
of the swine. Swingle is a north country name for a spindle. It may therefore 
possibly mean the wood in the dale where the Spindle-trees (Euonymus) grow. 

t James Metcalf of Nappa served at the Battle of Agincourt, and from him 
the Yorkshire and Lincolnshire Metcalfs have claimed to be sprung. The name

confessed that they found dyuers things in her barne as cope,f

Running" Recusant or Messanger among \tkem~\. They also 

of Ralf Angier of Redness. Her ancestors were settled at Frickley, in the parish 
of Hooton Pagnell, in the reign of Edward II. The origin of the name is obscure. 
We may be pretty sure that the guess which makes it out to be a woman's Christian 
name taken as a surname is a blunder. In the early period of their history they 
are frequently spoken of as D'Anne, which indicates aTterritorial origin. Hunter, 
South Yorks., ii. 148. 

* This person took his name from a village near Pontefract now called Hems- 
worth. It is the Hamelesuurde or Hilmeuuord of the Domesday survey, the Him- 
melsworth of the fovirteenth and Hymnesworth of the fifteenth century. The name 
was often spelt Himsworth until a very recent period, and the common people, 
more conservative than some of those who think themselves their betters, still 
retain the old pronunciation. 

) Of course we cannot wonder at the idle tattle of servants, especially when those 
in authority hold out inducements to them to act as spies on the households in which 
they live ; but it does seem strange that the presence of a cope should have been 
considered evidence by those who drew up these papers that mass had been said. 
The cope is the processional vestment, which is never used by the celebrant at the 
Holy Sacrifice.

to have married William, eldest son of William Rawson of Bradford, who we are 
told acquired by her the manor and estate of Shipley. Reference for this fact is 
made to the Heralds' Visitation of Yorkshire for 1666, but I have not succeeded in 
finding any confirmation of the statement in the printed copy of that record, either 
where one would naturally look for it, under Rawson of Shipley, p. 258, or under 
Gascoigne of Barnbow, p. 289.

* This was the sixth William Hungate in direct succession from William Hun- 
gate of Bornby, who married Margery, daughter of Sir Anthony Ughbred of Kexby. 
After his death the lady seems to have again encountered the sorrows of wedlock, 
for in the will of John Pickering of York, proved 6th August, 1471, there is a 
bequest to "Dominse Margaretse Normanvell, nuper uxori Willielmi Hungate 
armigeri, unum annulum aureum cum pereles fere circumspectis." The person 
named in the text married Margaret, daughter and heiress of Roger Sotheby of 
Pocklington, and had issue, (i) Sir William Hungate, Knt., who married Jane, 
daughter of George Middleton of Leighton, in the co. pal. of Lancaster, and died 
without issue in 1634 ; (2) Sir Philip Hungate, created a baronet I5th August, 
1642, an officer in the army of Charles I. He married Dorothy, daughter of Roger 
Lee of Hatfield and widow of Andrew Young of Bourn, co. York. His estates 
were confiscated for his loyalty by act of Parliament in 1652. This loyal gentle- 
man did not live to see the Restoration and to have his property restored to him. 
He died in 1655. His only son Francis, a colonel in the service of the King, was 
slain at Chester, not however before he had continued the line by marrying Joan, 
second daughter of Robert Middleton of Leighton, and becoming the father of Sir 
Francis, the second baronet ; (3) Thomas Hungate, who was in custody in 1643 
for having supported the Royal cause. 

The Katherine Hungate mentioned in the text was a daughter, seemingly the 
third, of William and Margaret. She married Christopher Babthorp of Drax.

* This is, I think, William Stables who was Mayor of Pontefract in 1593. His 
son and successor was another William, who married Elizabeth, daughter of .... 
Copeland. This person had a son, Richard, who married Isabell Bywater, a 
Pontefract lady, whose father was an alderman of that corporation, and, if 1 am not 
mistaken, mayor in 1610. Their eldest son, William Stables of Tanskelfe, was a 
lieutenant of horse in the Royal army and one of the volunteers for the defence of 
Pontefract castle during the first siege in December, 1644. Ralf Thoresby had 
seen a deed relating to this family dated 1429. Boothroyd^s Pontefract, 454 ; 
Drakes Pontefract Castle, Surtees Soc., 3-5 ; Ducatus Lead., 99. 

f* There is a strong probability, but as far as I am aware no proof, that this 
person was a cadet of the family of Lilburne, of Thickley Puncherdon, in the 
bishopric of Durham. This race took its name from the village of Lilburne in 
Northumberland. In the seventeenth century there were three brothers, all of 
some celebrity John, Richard, and Henry. By far the most notable of them was 
John, the famous agitator, who, after a life spent in contest with authority, died on 
Saturday, 2gth August, 1657, and was buried> a characteristic row taking place at 
the funeral, in the churchyard adjoining Bedlam. How different those sentiments

Mres Margery Constable who hath remayned in the house 

were which Charles I. called " democratical" from the passionate ignorance of our 
own time, which thinks it has kinship with them because it uses some of the same 
party catch-words, is shown by the conduct of John Lilburn on one of his trials. 
It was in 1642, when serving as a captain in the army of the Parliament, he had 
the misfortune to fall into the hands of the Royalists. The King had not then 
begun to treat his antagonists as belligerents, so the captive was indicted at Oxford 
for high treason under the style of John Lilburn, yeoman. At the risk of his life 
he refused to plead to this, saying he was not a yeoman but a gentleman. 
The following epigram on his death was once popular : 

" Untimely 'cause so late ; and late because 
To save much mischief, it no sooner was. 
Is John departed ? and is Lilburne gone ? 
Farewell to both, to Lilburne and to John ! 
Yet being gone, take this advice from me, 
Let them not both in one grave buried be, 
Here lay ye John ; lay Lilbum there about, 
For if they both should meet they wou'd fall out. " 

Richard Lilburn was one of the King's judges, and signed the warrant for his 
execution. He was imprisoned for life at the Restoration at the isle of St. Nicholas, 
near Plymouth. Death liberated him in August, 1665, aged 52. 

Henry Lilburn was also an officer in the Parliamentary army in 1648. He was 
governor of Tynemouth castle. On the Qth of August of that year he and the 
greater part of the garrison revolted to the King. Sir Arthur Haselrig, the 
governor of Newcastle, at once despatched Col. Ashfield and Major Cobham with 
orders to storm the place. Many of the soldiers were put to the sword, among 
others the governor, whose head is said to have been smitten off and stuck upon a 
pole. Thomas Lelburn was parson of Atcliffe, co. Lincoln, in 1545. In his will, 
proved l8th May, 1546, he mentions " Welliam Oggull," his kinsman. I shall 
be glad if any one can show the connexion of this Thomas and of Richard the 
schoolmaster with the house of Thickley Puncherdon. Rush-worth, v. 83, vii. 1227 ;

in Normandy. For this information he refers to a genealogical work, popular in 
spite, or perhaps in consequence, of its inaccuracy. The present entry will convince 
most persons that such an origin cannot always be claimed for the name of Cherry. 
If this is not found sufficient, the evidence of a daughter of the princely house of 
Mowbray, who died in or before 1451, will be conclusive. By her will, among 
other bequests, Hawesia Aske, widow of Roger Aske, of Aske near Richmond, 
made the following provision : " Lego, Johannse Chery, famulse meae sex vaccas

* Sir Edward Plumpton was the representative of an old gentilitial family which 
took its patronymic from the village of Plumpton. They were fervent Roman 
Catholics. His father, Sir William, married Anne, daughter of Edward Griffin of 
Dingley, a Northamptonshire gentleman who had filled the office of Attorney- 
General in the reign of Queen Mary. He married (i) Frances, daughter of William 
Arthington of Arthington, I3th September, 1599, by whose issue the line was 
continued ; and secondly, in 1664, Frances, daughter of Richard Chamney, who 
seems to have died s. p. Yorkshire antiquaries and all others who are interested 
in the social life of our ancestors are indebted to him for having transcribed, and 
thus preserved for future ages, the large collection of letters known as the Plumpton 
Correspondence. With one exception, it is the -most important collection of the 
private correspondence of the latter middle ages that has come down to us. His 
eldest son John, who married Anne, daughter of Richard Townelly of Townelly, in 
the county palatine of Lancaster, was mortally wounded "ex parte regis" at Marston 
Moor. He died and was buried at Knaresborough very shortly after. 

Robert Plumpton, the last of the line, was born 23rd April, 1721, and died at 
Cambrai, 8th August, 1749. He conformed to Protestantism, but through the 
influence of his aunt Anne, a Benedictine nun at that place, returned to the 
faith of his ancestors before his death. Arms Azure five fusils or, each charged

f There can be little doubt that William Swale and Solomon were of the family 
of Swale Hall and South Stainley. They do not however occur in any pedi- 
gree that I have seen. Solomon was a common family name of theirs.

* This old Catholic family continued until very recent days in the possession of 
their estate at Nidd Hall, near Knaresborough. Several of them served the King 
in the great Civil War. . Mr. Robert Trappes had a commission granted to him by 
the Earl of Newcastle in 1642. Husband's Col. ofRemon., i. 903. 

Robert Trappes, a member of this family, in the preceding century settled in 
London, and enriched himself as a goldsmith. On 3Oth July, 1568, Roger Man- 
wood, Serjeant-at-law, and Richard Heywood, executors of the will of Joane 
Trappes, late of London, widow, sold certain lands to Lincoln College, Oxford, 
towards founding four scholars for ever in the said college, which scholars were to 
be called the scholars of Robert Trapps, goldsmith, and of Joane his wife. John

Trappes and his two wives were buried at St. Leonards, Foster Lane, and over 
them was a gravestone thus inscribed in brass : 

" When the bels be merely roung, 
And the masse devoutly song, 
And the mete merely eaten, 

" Then shall Robert Trappis, his wyfFs and his chyldren, quite be forgetten. 

" Wherefore Jesu, that of Mary sproung, 
Set theyr soulys the saynts amoung, 
Though it be vndeservyd on their syde, 

" Yet, good Lord, let them evermore thy mercy abyde, 

And of your cherite 
For their souls say a pater noster and an aue. "

* In the late Mr. John Richard Walbran's Memorials of Fountains Abbey a John 
Hebden is mentioned as holding certain property valued at xxvjs. viijd. of the abbey 
lately dissolved. That learned antiquary suggests that "it is by no means unlikely 
that he sprung from the ancient house of Hebden of Hebden, in the parish of 
Burnsall, about six miles from Coldstoneford, the ancestor of which, Uchtred son 
of Dolfyn, obtained the manor from Roger de Mowbray about the middle of the 
twelfth century." p. 346. The person in the text was probably of the kin of the 
abbey tenant. 

-\- Kirkby Malesart, Malsarde, Malsett, Malsherd, Malsert or Malzeard, is a 
small town, within the liberty of St. Peter near Masham. Here was once a 
chief stronghold of the Mowbrays. When Roger de Mowbray joined in" the re- . 
bellion of Prince Henry against his father, Henry II., in 1176, this fortress fell 
into the hands of the King by surrender, and was soon after dismantled. No 
remains of it appear, but fragments of sculptured stone, marking the spot where 
it stood, have more than once been turned up. 

This place is memorable for another circumstance. Generations ago there 
lived here a certain old man, a member of the Society of Friends, called Christo- 
pher Pinkney. He was very superstitious, and used frequently to entertain his 
more sceptical neighbours with accounts of divine revelations of which he had 
been the channel. One cold winter's night, as he and his wife were sitting 
warming themselves by the fire-side previous to retiring to rest, a loud blow was 
heard on the window shutter, and a deep voice addressed him thus : " Christopher 
Pinkney, take down thy staff from behind thy door, and go forth and smash the 
windows of the wicked steeple-house at Kirkby Malzeard." Christopher, doubting

Lord?" She, full of faith, replied, "Yea, verily ! Go then, do even as it has 
been commanded thee." So Christopher took his stick, and sallying forth to the 
church, broke such of the windows as were within reach. The voice he had heard 
was that of the village glazier, whose name I think was Green. He had watched 
the poor fanatic's proceedings, and lost no time in laying an information, thus 
securing to himself half the penalty. The grateful churchwardens also gave him 
the job of mending the shattered panes.

* The name of Malthus, rendered illustrious by the discoverer of the law of 
population, is a corruption or rather an old form of this name. A family so called 
lived for several generations at Northorpe, near Kirton-in-Lindsey. Their bap- 
tisms and obits occur in both forms in the parish register.

Darlington, in the bishopric of Durham. 

J This old woman was, we may be pretty sure, a peasant, and would have been 
not a little surprised at the magnificent descent which we have seen attributed to 
those who bear the name of Russell. The Norman Lords of Rosel, who were a 
younger branch of the house of Briquebec, have, it is pretty certain, nothing 
whatever to do with many who bear this name. It is in most cases a common 
local contraction. John of the Rush-well became John Russell, just as in the

* This is very probably a contracted form of Peacock. The latter name is so 

pronounced by the common people in many parts of the north of England and 
elsewhere. A family of Peacock of the yeoman class lived at or near Ripon at 
this time, and Ralf was a family name of theirs. The family of Peak or Peke, of 
Warton, near Gainsborough, were almost certainly a younger branch of the 
Peacoeks, or Pacocks of Blyton.

f This person was probably a member of the same family as that from which 
the illustrious novelist sprung. The name is no doubt taken from some Yorkshire 
locality ; but I am not aware that it has been identified. The ancestors of the 
author of Vanity Fair lived, in the seventeenth century, at Hampthwaite, a little 
village on the river Nidd, about three miles from Ripley. The name may be 
traced in that neighbourhood as far back as 1336, when John de Thakura held of 
the house of Fountains certain lands at Hartwith. The pedigree of this family has 
been ably treated by a writer in the Herald and Genealogist, ii. 315-328, 440-455. 
Some additional information as to persons of this name may be seen in Walbran's

attracts the attention of the wanderer.

Barnborough, and thus took the representation of that line and the earlier one of 
Cresacre into his family. Their grandson Thomas Peter Metcalfe assumed the 
name and arms of More. The estate of Barnborough had been in the possession 
of his ancestors from the time of Edward I. Sad to tell, it was sold but a few 
years back. 

The Metcalfes bear for coat armour argent three calves passant sable, a pun 
upon their name. 

f This word is obscure. I may not have read it aright. It is possibly a con- 
traction for deceased. 

J This surname is probably a corruption of the French Pelletier, a skinner.

* John Ingleby, sixth son of Sir William Ingleby, of Ripley, and his wife Anne, 
daughter of William Mallory, of Studley, married a daughter of Sir William 
Babthorpe, of Babthorpe, in Nottinghamshire. Dugdale says her name was 
Anne. Thoresby gives Katherine. Visit. Ebor. 30. Ducatus Lead. 192. , 

The Inglebys had reason enough to hate Protestantism. Many of their kin had 
suffered for the old religion fine and imprisonment, and but a few years before, the 
blood of Francis, the fourth son of Sir William, had been shed for the faith. He 
"was an alumnus and priest of Douay College during his residence at Rheims, 
and was ordained and sent upon the English mission, anno 1584. He laboured 
with great fruit in the northern parts of this kingdom, in the worst of times, where, 
at length, he was apprehended, tried, and condemned, barely for being a priest, 
ordained by authority derived from the see of Rome, and remaining in this king- 
dom. He suffered at York on the 3rd of June, 1586." Chattoner's Missionary 
Priests, ed. 1844, i. 197. 

f The Yorkes and Inglebys were connections by marriage. Peter Yorke, of 
Goulthwayt, eldest son of Sir John Yorke, married Elizabeth, daughter of Sir 
William Ingleby. Their second son, Thomas, marrie_d Frances Babthorpe, sister 
of John Ingleby's wife- Arms -azure, a saltire argent. They bear a monkey's

a member of this family first brought that animal into England. Visit. Ebor. 92 ;

* The Oglethorpes took their name from a village so called near York. Dug- 
dale gives two pedigrees of the family in his visitation of 1665-6, but I am not 
able certainly to identify the person in the text. It is not improbable that he is 
Thomas, the second son of John Oglethorpe, of Oglethorpe. That person married 
a daughter of one of the Vavasours of Haselwood who we may certainly assume 
to have been a Catholic. 

t A long note in Walbran's Memorials of Fountains (323), which embodies nearly 
everything that the most unwearied research could discover concerning this family, 
will well repay perusal to those persons for whom the picturesque details of 
family history have a charm. In the fourteenth century they were settled at Clint, 
in the parish of Ripley. No Simon Beckwith occurs among the names mentioned 
by Mr. Walbran. I presume it is but a guess that this person was a near relative 
of Roger Beckwith of Aldborough, whose son William was of Thurcroft, in the 
parish of Laughton en le Morthen. Roger had another son, Matthew. He was a 
Captain in the Parliamentary army, Justice of Peace 1650, Commissioner of 
Assessment 1656. He lived at Tanfield, near Masham, in a house down by the 
river-side which had once been the abode of Lady Maud Marmion's chantry priests. 
As may be imagined, such a person was not popular with the clergy after the 
Restoration. Once, when making some additions to his house, he, following the 
taste of his time, inserted over the door a stone inscribed 


whereupon Mr. Littleton, the parson of the parish, who lived on the other side 
of the way, wrote over his portal 

" I do not heed the man the more 
That hangs religion at his door." 

Beckwith's stone had been covered over with stucco, and nearly forgotten. A few 
years ago the editor, passing through the village, was shown it as a curiosity by 
the present owner of the property. It had been discovered but a few days before, 
while the old buildings, - rich with so many quaint memories, were once more 


William Stable of Tanshelf had a child but where it was 
baptized it is not knowne.

undergoing that process which, when applied to churches, is, by grim sarcasm, . 
called restoration. It was purchased for a trifle, and is now preserved at Bottes-

* Thomas Chattell was Mayor in 1603. Boothroyd 1 s Pontefract, 454. 

f He is called Hussycroft by Dr. Millar in his catalogue of the Mayors. He 
died during his mayoralty, in the month of May, and was succeeded by John 
Carnill. Either he or a namesake had filled the same office in 1595. He is no 
doubt the same person as the Alderman John Carlill, who joined with the Mayor 
in this certificate. A Richard Levett had been Mayor in 1596, and the name 
occurs again in the like post in 1608. There was a gentilitial family of this 
name at Melton near Wath upon Dearne, at this period.

* Micklegate is the entrance of the city from the London road. The upper 
portion was probably built in the reign of Edward III. ; the lower is of uncertain 
date. In 1827 a characteristic act of the citizens irreparably injured this ancient relic. 
They removed the barbican, and made a second large arch through the wall for 
the convenience of foot people. An ugly opening of a similar kind had '.been made 
by their grandfathers in the middle of the last century. 

t Wanhope is a good old word for despair e.g., 

" For her mother had hangd herselfe, 
& her one sister quicke was delfe, 
& for that her father did amisse, 
& her brother was strangled I-wis, 
Her other sister a whore stronge, 
That harlotts was ever among, 
Almost for sorrow & for thought 
In -wan-hope shee was brought. "

" For god forbedithe -wanhope, 
for that a horrible synne ys." 

RusselFs Boke of Nurture, ed. Furnivall, 119. 

We cannot, however, suppose that anybody out of a religious allegory would bear 
so depressing a name. There cannot be much doubt that it is local. Hope means 
a hill, and is often found in composition, as in Midhope, Middlehope, Blenkinsopp, 
Swinhope, Hopekirk, and Hopewell. Walter Wanhop was a lieutenant of foot 
among the Scotch prisoners after the battle of Dunbar. True Rel. of routing of the

t The family of Clitherow were yeomen of good standing, but not, I think, in 
the rank of gentry. They took their name from Clitherow, in the County Pala- 
tine of Lancaster, but some of them were settled in Yorkshire in the middle of 
the fifteenth century. In 1464 John Aldwyk, Alderman of Hull, mentions Hugh 
Cliderhowe in his will. In 1454 " William Clyderhowe, of Kyngeston opon Hull, 
marchand, mighty of mynd and of hayll witt," left his body to be buried in St. 
Mary's Church by his father's side. About the same time we find a Richard 
Clitheroe chaplain at Bolton in Wensleydale. The name has a painful interest 
from having been borne by Margaret Middleton, the martyr, whose prolonged 
tortures and death in York Castle, endured solely for the purpose of preserving the 
lives of others, is among the most harrowing incidents in the long tragedy of Tudor 
persecution. The simple narrative of the old writer is better than any words of 
mine: "On the 26th of March (some say the 25th) of this or the foregoing 
year, for authors are divided about the time, Mrs. Margaret Clithero, whose 
maiden name was Middleton, a gentlewoman of a good family in York- 
shire, was pressed to death at York. She was prosecuted, under that violent 
persecution raised in those times, by the Earl of Huntington, Lord President 
of the North. The crime she was charged with was relieving and harbour- 
ing priests. She refused to plead, that she might not bring others into danger

by her conviction, or be accessary to the jurymen's sins in condemning the

death. She bore this cruel torment with invincible patience, often repeating in 
the way to execution that this -way to heaven was as short as any other. Her hus- 
band was forced into banishment. Her little children, who wept and lamented for 
their mother, were taken up, and being questioned concerning the articles of their 
religion, and answering as they had been taught by her, were severely whipped ; 
and the eldest, who was but twelve years old, was cast into prison. Her life 
was written by the reverend and learned Mr. John Mush, her director, who, after 
many years labouring with great fruit in the English mission, after having suffered 
prisons and chains, and received even the sentence of death for his faith, died at 
length in his bed, in a good old age, in 1617." Challoner's Missionary Priests,

canonization never sanctioned their devotion. Another perhaps not less .memo- 
rable, but noteworthy for very different reasons, was Adrian Scroope, the regicide. 
He belonged to the extreme section of the Independents. Throughout the war he 
did his duty faithfully, but had the unhappiness to survive the Restoration, and 
after going through a form of trial which had little more pretension to legality 
than that in consequence of which his noble predecessor suffered, he undenvent. 
the horrible death which was then awarded to traitors. He seems to have met his 
punishment a doom from the mere mental contemplation of which we now turn 
in sickened, horror with strangely stoic heroism. On the morning of his execu- 
tion "he slept so sound that he snored, and was obliged to be waked when the 
sledge came for him." His last words, spoken but a few moments before the 
executioner began his horrid butchery, showed that even at such a time he could 
not forget the race from which he sprung : " I will not tell you what my breeding 
hath been, because it is not good for any man, especially at such a time as this, 
to boast of his lineage nor breeding ; but this I will say, I was born and bred a 
gentleman." The relationship of the persons mentioned in the text will be seen

* The editor makes no apology for inserting here a notelet concerning Cover- 
ham. Abbey, communicated to him some twelve or fourteen years ago by one who 
. had recently visited the place : " You ask about Coverham. There is little left 
of which to tell.. It was a Premonstratensian house, founded by Helewisia Glan- 
ville, daughter of Ralf, the Lord Chief Justice. The first site was at Swainby, in 
Pickhall parish, but her son Ralf Fitz Robert, Lord of Middleham, moved the 
brethren here. It never can have been a place of much wealth or political impor- 
tance. A little before the final conflagration, when the wheat and the tares of mo- 
nasticism were alike burnt up, there were only twenty brethren. One of the Abbots 
was a Rokeby, Christopher by name. I am not able to attach him to the parent 
stem, but there cannot be any doubt of what race he came. Coverham bore the 
Nevil saltire without difference of colour for its arms. It had shared in the princely 
patronage of that great house, and, it seems, was at least heraldically grateful. 
The church, as far as can be made out, was mainly an Early English building. It 
has been sadly 'ruinated.' The present state of the ruins is disgraceful beyond 
expression. I find no fault that they are not trimly kept, but they might at least 
be allowed to sink 'peacefully into decay. Their desecration is as complete as the 
most uneducated fanatic could' desire. When I was there some pigs were wander- 
ing about the sacred enclosure, and a heap of manure rotted on the spot where the 
high altar had stood. Two monumental effigies of colossal size were grubbed up 
out of the ruins some time ago, and are now stuck upright against the posts of the 
gateway of a neighbouring garden. Both are interesting, one especially so, as it 
is the vera effigies of Ralf, son of Robert Neville, who was buried here in 1331. 
The figure is surrounded by a representation of a stag hunt. It has been engraved 
by Gough, and*it is well that some at least of its spirit is so far beyond the reach 
of destruction. If excavations were made it is probable that other interesting 
objects would be found, but it is better they should remain where they are till the 
times mend." We hope the above description is not a picture of the present state 
of this interesting ruin. '

* This uncommon surname is found in the churchwardens' accounts of Louth, 
co. Lincoln, in the early part of the reign of Henry VIII. Its possessors were 
tradesmen. A wait originally meant a watchman ; in latter times it came to 
mean a Christmas minstrel. 

+. Hopp and Hopps are forms of Hope, a North-country word for hill. 

No doubt one of the very prolific race of Swale, of Swale Hall and South Stainby. 
Several members of this family still remain attached to the ancient faith. A Solomon 
Swale, but certainly not this one, was created a Baronet 2ist June, 1660. The 
title is said in the ordinary books of reference to be extinct. Three of the future 
Baronet's brothers served in the royal armies during the troubles. Their arms are 
said to represent the river Swale, from, which they took their name Azure a bend 
nebule argent.

* A Scot, or one of Scottish lineage, who had strayed over the Border and 
settled at Reeth. Perhaps he had fled for the sake of his religion, for carefully as 
Catholics were sought after here, the scrutiny was far more microscopic in Scotland. 
He was, it will be observed, a noncommtmicant, not a recusant, therefore perhaps 
not a very determined "papist." He may have been only a wandering Scot, a cattle 
dealer, perhaps, who had preferred marrying a widow and settling down as a farmer 
in a Yorkshire dale to the wild life of the Borders. If he were really a Douglas by 
lineage, not merely a retainer who had assumed the name, we see that the noblest 
blood of feudal Scotland was already blending with that of the common people. 

George Douglas, a Scottish secular priest, was executed at York in the reign of 
Elizabeth, " for persuading the queen's subjects to the Catholic religion. " He is said 
to have been of Douay, but this is doubtful. Challoner's Missionary Priests, i. 2ic.

* The Great Plague of 1600-1603. During the time of the greatest mortality, 
3000 persons a week died in London and Westminster. The deaths in those cities 
were calculated at 30,000 in all. This visitation raged in many rural districts and 
small towns with a virulence equal at least to that which it manifested in the great 
centres of population. It is the custom in the present day to attribute almost all 
the sad calamities of infectious disease to dirt, bad water, and want of fresh air. 
The belief of those who watched the progress of these pestilences in former days 
was the old and now discredited one that they were mainly the result of atmo- 
spheric causes : 

" Obscura ccelo labitur Phcebi soror ; 

Tristisque mundus nubilo pallet novo : 

Nullum serenis noctibus sidus micat ; 

Sed gravis et ater incubat terris vapor." 

The fact that the dwellers in rural districts have frequently suffered so severely 
is. surely an evidence that the olcl opinion was not entirely without foundation.

Thomas, married Mary, daughter of Ralf Nevill, fourth Earl of Westmorland, 
and through him the representation of the line was continued. Their genealogy begins 
with John of Danby, whose daughter Armatrude is said to have married "Ed- 
mond Stringent, who came in with the Conqueror." It can be supported by 
record evidence to a very distant period, but we fear that the earliest links in the 
chain have not that advantage. 

The singular name of Abstrupus was a common one in this house in latter times. 
The main stem became extinct in the male line in the early part of this century.

differenced the ancestral shield by a canton gules. In several of the Yorkshire 
churches, notably at that of Wath near Ripon, the arms on the Norton tombs have 
been wantonly mutilated. It is believed this atrocity was committed by those who 
executed the royal vengeance after the suppression of that unfortunate revolt against 
Tudor tyranny. The highly wrought religious feeling of the Nortons on that oc- 
casion is indicated by the fact that while the other leaders bore their arms and 
badges as battle insignia 

" The Nortons ancyent had the cross 
And the five wounds our Lord did beare. "

+ John Dodsworth of Thornton Watlass, married Winifrede, daughter and 
heiress of John Warde of Barton. It would be impossible for me, who have been 
so much indebted to his labours, to forget to mention here the name of Roger 
Dodsworth, the most industrious of the Yorkshire antiquaries. The man to whom 
we owe far more than to any other one person the preservation of what little we 
know of the family history of the noblest of the English shires, and to whom we 
are indebted, at least as much as to Sir William Dugdale, for the collection of the 
treasures of the Monasticon. Upwards of one hundred and sixty volumes of his 
manuscripts are preserved in Bodley's Library, and of these one hundred and 
twenty-two are in his own handwriting. No better words can be found by me 
than those used by Thomas Hearne, when moved to unwonted fervour by the 
contemplation of the results of that well-spent life : "I never look upon these 
volumes, and I have frequent occasion to inspect them, without the utmost sur- 
prise and wonder; and I cannot but bless God that He was pleased out of His 
infinite goodness and mercy to raise up so pious and diligent a person, that should 
by His blessing so effectually discover and preserve such a noble treasure of 
antiquities as is contained in those volumes." It seems hard that he who has done 
so much for others has found no biographer. He was certainly a cadet of the 
family of Dodsworth of Thornton Watlass. See what little is known of him and 
his in Hunter's Three Catalogues^ 59 et seqq.

* Son of John Rokeby, of Rokeby and Mortham, the head of main stem of this 
very ancient and honourable family. Several members of the younger branches 
embraced Protestantism in a very decided form, but the elder line remained attached 
to the old way of serving God. John, above mentioned, suffered bitterly for his 
faith. In 1584 we find him in the Fleet Prison, "religionis causa," probably 
because he could not or would not pay some fine that had been imposed. His 
wife was Anne Thweng. Their son, Sir Thomas, married Margaret, daughter of 
Sir Ralf Lawson, of Brough Hall, in Richmondshire, an old Catholic family. Sir 
Thomas Rokeby sold the domain, from which his ancestors had taken their name, 
to Mr. William Robinson, one of whose descendants was made an Irish peer, 
under the title of Lord Rokeby. The peers did not inherit even in the female 
line a drop of the Rokeby blood.

* The Wycliffes had been settled here from the reign of Edward I. and probably 
at an earlier period. Some have thought that John Wycliffe the Reformer was of 
this house. The editor declines to give an opinion on a point on which there is, 
at present, no evidence. That he was born at or near the village of Wycliffe seems 
certain ; cf. Shirley's Fasc* Zizan. x., and the authorities there quoted. William 

Wycliffe, was the son of John and his first wife, Elizabeth, daughter of 

Parkinson. He married secondly a daughter, whose Christian name I have not 
seen recorded, of Robert Thorkild. This person I have no doiibt was the "Jane 
Wyclif widow " who had been a recusant for ' ' divers yeares. " William Wycliffe 
had two wives : (r) Dorothy, daughter and heiress of John Peace, of Halnetby ; 
(2) Muriel, daughter of Sir William Eure. The family is believed to be extinct. 
Mr. Raine has informed me that Mr. Surtees, the Durham historian, was anxious 
to find a genuine Rokeby or Wycliffe that he might provide for him, but was never 
able to do so. He adds that he believes some of the latter race still linger in the 
neighbourhood of Hexham. Archteologia sSliana, Aug. 1860, p. 19. Paulson's

or about 1556 they became of Kilvington. The person mentioned here was the 
eldest son of Roger Meynell of North Kilvington, who married Margaret, daughter 
and co-heiress of Anthony Catterick of Stanwick. He joined the Catholic insur- 
rection of 1569, under the Earls of Northumberland and Westmorland, and thus 
incurred the penalties of high treason, but received the royal pardon. Thomas, 
his son and successor, was born in 1564. He married (i) Winifred, daughter of 
Thomas Pudsey of Barforth, and (2) Mary Gale. In 1600 he was committed to 
gaol as a Recusant. His place of confinement was the Blockhouse at Kingston- 
upon- Hull, from whence in the following year he was removed to York Castle. In 
1604 he received a general pardon from King James. Burke 's Commonej's, i. 403.

* No doubt this person was one of the Claxtons of the County Palatine of Durham,

Surtees's beautiful ballad of Claxton's Lament, gives a poetic interest to a family 
whose misfortunes in endeavouring to bring about a counter revolution should give 
them a corner in the memory of all those who take higher than partizan views of 
the religious history of their forefathers.

* The ancestors of the Earls of Harewood sprung from the village of Hinder- 
skelfe, in the wapentake of Bulmer. John de Lascelles held divers lands there 
in the gth of Edward II. His son, another John, was called " Filius Johannis, 
alias Jackson," and the family for many generations were known by either name. 
The person mentioned in the text was the eldest son of Robert Lascelles, or Jack- 
son, of Gauthorpe and Eryholme Grange, in the parish of Hovingham, who married 
Dorothy Newport. " His son, who is not described as a knight in Whitaker's 
pedigree (Loidis and Elmete, 168) had livery of his estate in the 1st of Elizabeth, 
and died i6th James I. He married Margery, daughter of Sir William Saint 
Quihtin of Harpham. The present Earl of Harewood descends from his brother, 
Francis Lascelles, alias Jackson, who married Anne, daughter of John Charter of 
North- Allerton, served the office of High Sheriff, 1605, and had the honour of 
knighthood conferred upon him the same year. He married Elizabeth, daughter 
of Sir George Bowes of Streatham in the Bishopric of Durham, and left numerous 
issue. Arch, sEliana, Aug. 1860, p. 49.

* These people were clearly relatives of Nicholas Postgate, the Catholic martyr, 
but the exact degree of relationship will probably for ever remain uncertain. 

An entry a little further on shows that Jane Posgate was a widow ; whether her 
name was the same before marriage, as is possible, or whether William Posgate, who 
is there called her father, was only so by marriage is doubtful. It seems however 
highly probable that one of the children mentioned as being privately baptized was 
the future martyr. He was born at Kirkdale House in the parish of Egton in York- 
shire about the end of the sixteenth century. His parents had been great sufferers

for their religion. He was admitted convictor at Douay College in 1621; took the 
college oath 1623 ; promoted to minor orders Dec. 28th, 1624 ; Sub-Deacon 
Dec. 1 8th, 1627 ; Deacon March i8th, 1628 ; and Priest March 2oth of the 
same year. He was sent on the English mission June 29th, 5:630. Nearly fifty years 
of his life were spent in his native county in fulfilling the dangerous duties of his 
office. His residence in the latter part of his life was upon a heath-clad moor 
about two miles from Mulgrave Castle and five miles from Whitby, called Blacka- 
moor. The old man. would probably have gone to the grave in peace by a natural 
death had not the popular mind been driven to fury by the supposed discoveries 
of the inventors of the Popish plot. These falsehoods stimulated the persecuting 
zeal not only of those misguided people who sincerely thought they did God 
service by hunting Catholic priests to death, but also of every unprincipled ruffian 
who did not shrink from swearing away a man's life for reward. 

" He was apprehended by one Reeves, an exciseman, an implacable enemy of 
Catholics, at the house of Matthew Lythis,at Little-Beck, near Whitby,and was, with 
his harbourer, committed to York gaol. When his trial came on, he was indicted for 
high treason, not as a plotter, but as a priest. The witnesses that appeared against 
him were Elizabeth Wood, Elizabeth Baxter, and Richard Morrice. These deposed, 
that they had seen him baptize and exercise other priestly functions ; and upon their 
evidence he was found guilty by his jury, and condemned to die ; which sentence 
was no ways unwelcome to him, who had been learning to die all his life-time. 

" The day allotted for his triumphant exit, was the 7th of August, 1679 ; on which 
day in the morning, amongst other visitors, went to see him, Mrs. Fairfax, wife 
to Mr. Charles Fairfax of York, and Mrs. Meynel of Kilvington. These ladies 
having done their devotions, went together to his room, to take their last leave of 
him and to crave his blessing. The confessor seeing them in great concern, 
whereas he was cheerful, came up to them, and laying his right hand upon the one, 
and his left upon the other, they being both at that time big with child, he spoke 
these words to them : Be of good heart, children ;you shall both be delivered oj sons, 
and they will be both saved. Immediately afterwards he was laid upon a sledge, 
and drawn through the streets, to the place of execution, where he suffered with 
great constancy. The two ladies were soon after brought to bed of sons, who were 
both baptized, and both died in their infancy. This, says the Rev. Mr. Knares-

Smithson, of Kirkdale bancke, Anne his wife, Henrie Dale of

borough, in a paper which I have now before me, was told me by Mrs. Fairfax, 
one of the parties, the 5th of October, 1705. 

At the gallows he spoke little ; the substance of his words was ' I die in the 
Catholic religion, out of which there is no salvation; Mr. Sheriff, you know I die not 
for the plot, but for my religion. I pray God bless the king and the royal family. Be 
pleased, Mr. Sheriff, to acquaint his Majesty, that I never offended him in any 
manner of way. I pray God give him his grace, and the light of truth. I forgive all that 
have wronged me and brought me to this death, and I desire forgiveness of all people.' 
He was executed according to sentence ; his quartered body was given to his friends, 
and interred. One of his hands is preserved in Douay College. The following in- 
scription was put upon a copper-plate, and thrown into his coffin : 

" ' Here lies that reverend and pious divine, Dr. Nicholas Postgate, who was 
educated in the English College at Douay. And after he had laboured fifty years 
(to the admirable benefit and conversion of hundreds of souls) was at last advanced 
to a glorious crown of martyrdom, at the city of York, on the 7th of August, 1679, 
having been priest 51 years, aged 82.' 

"The unhappy Reeves, who apprehended him, never had the 2O/. reward which 
he looked for ; but after having suffered for some time an extreme torture in body 
and mind, was found drowned in a small brook." Chattonet's Mem. of Missionary 
Priests, ii. 401. 

Thomas Ward, the author of the Errata of the Protestant Bible, knew him well. 
He speaks of him as 

"A reverend priest, devout and good, 

" Whose spotless life in length was spun 

" To eighty years and three times one. 

" Sweet his behaviour, grave his speech, 

" He did by good example teach ; 

" His love, right bent, his will resign'd, 

" Serene his look, and calm his mind ; 

" His sanctity to that degree, 

" As angels live, so lived he." 

Canto iv. ed. 1716, p. 396. 

Further on he tells us that his abode was a dismal hermitage, sheltered not by 
wood but by snowdrifts. It is possible that those who have an intimate local 
knowledge of the neighbourhood may still be able to identify the spot. 

Mr. Raine has published the depositions which were taken on Postgate's arrest.

He cannot but have been one of the race who take their name from Waterton in 
the Isle of Axholme. The Yorkshire branch, which has been settled for ages at 
Walton Hall, and of which the late Charles Waterton was the representative, 
still remain faithful to the old religion. The Lincolnshire offshoots, of which there 
were two "or three, are believed to have become extinct long ago. 

t Probably, but by no means certainly, this is the John Ingleby who married 
(i) Isabell, daughter of N. Tpwnley of Royle, co. Pal. Lane. ; (2) Mary, daughter 
of Sir Thomas Lake. This person's father was Thomas Ingleby, who died in

* Berryman probably means a thrasher. Berry is an old North-country word, now

in the following rude rhyme still associated with Hart Hall in Glaisdale : 

*' Gin Hob mun hae nowght but a hardin hamp, 
He'll come nae mairnowther to berry nor stamp."

* Here is a curious picture of the working of the old penal laws. These poor 
people had been in York .Castle, most likely for some offence connected with the 
practice of their religion, and there, even in the jaws of the grave as it were, had' 
found a minister of God to join them in holy matrimony. Probably the celebrant 
was some missioner from beyond sea who had fallen into the clutches of the civil 
power and had long before these pages were written received his martyr's crown. 
If it were not so, and a priest from, the outer world had visited them in their con- 
finement for the purpose of exercising his sacred functions, he did so at a risk which 
required little less courage and far more wariness and circumspection than martyr- 
dom itself.

V The Cholmeleys of Whitby were sprung from a notable Cheshire family, 
at present represented by George Horatio Cholmondeley, second Marquis of Chol- 
mondeley. The founder of the Whitby branch was Hugh Cholmondeley, who 
married Katherine, daughter of William Shierstow, temp. Edward III. 

In 1545, Sir Richard Cholmley, the "great black knight of the north," as he 
was afterwards called, purchased the demesne of Whitby Abbey, and in 1555 the 
manors of Whitby, Leirpol, Whitby-Lathes, Stainsacres, and Hawkesgarth. His 
first wife was Margaret, daughter of Lord Conyers ; his second, Katherine, 
daughter of Henry first Earl of Cumberland, widow of John Lord Scrope of Bolton. 

Sir Henry Cholmley, the person who signed this certificate, was the only son of 
Sir Richard by his second wife. In or about 1599 he married Margaret, daughter 
of Sir William Babthorpe. He was knighted by James I. in 1663. In the latter

* William Foster, or Forster, of Erdswyke, was sprung from-the gentle race of 
Forster of Adderstone, or Etherston, in Northumberland. The origin of the name 
is obvious ; some who bore it have, even in recent days, used a mark of contraction 
to show that it is a form of Forrester.- Their paternal coat tells of the sights and 
sounds of the merry greenwood.

might have been in the mind of him who first decorated his shield with argent a 
chevron- between three bugle horns sable. They frequently set about their arms a 
rhyming motto. For the music of the verse we can say little, but the spirit of 
family affection and reverence for the memory of those who have passed away and 
left their "worthynes" as a treasure to their offspring, is very touching. These 
verses are often found in Northumberland inscribed over the doors of houses which 
once belonged to the Forsters, and upon their grave slabs : 

" f*i s bmlie %m 
" STa mgttitt tfmr 
" |rat te\it\ our parents 
" Hailf left s to possess*." 

Thomas Forster, the Jacobite general of 1715, was of Adderstone. More fortunate 
than many of his fellow royalists, he escaped beyond the reach of the vindictiveness 
of the'Hanoverian government. He died, at Boulogne in 1737. His body was 
brought over to Dover and buried there in the following year, but shortly afterwards 
removed to sleep with its kin in the family vault at Bamborough. Probably none 
of the clans of the English side of the Border were more widely spread or more 
numerous than the Forsters; they' were scattered "in almost every village and 
hamlet in the northern wards of Northumberland, and almost all of them desiring 
to be buried Christianly in the choir of St. Aidan, at Bamborough, which, spacious 
though it be, must literally be paved with the skulls of Forster." There is no 
family in the north country whose history, could it find a fitting chronicler, 
would be more interesting than this. The labour would indeed go unrewarded in 
fame or money, but it would throw more real light on the ways of our forefathers 
than any one of those many partisan histories that are popular only because they 
are supposed to prove certain foregone conclusions in politics, morals, and 
theology, but which really are for all purposes of information of far less value than 
the chronicle plays of Shakspeare or the novels of Sir Walter Scott. William 
Forster, who retained the recusant called Jayne, whose name the Commissioners 
had forgotten or been unable to find out, married a north-country lady named

* Here is the record of a picturesque scene. The lady and her lover dare not 
marry in her father's house for fear of spies, so an appointment is made to meet at 
some secluded nook on the wild moorlands ; a priest is ready at the risk of his life 
to perform the rite, and the wedding party return home without discovery. - Such 
incidents must have been very frequent during the darker periods of the English 
persecution. The lady was daughter of William Hungate of Saxton. She is called 
Catherine in Dugdale's pedigree. After this husband's death she married Sir 
William, Howard, third son of William Howard and Elizabeth, daughter of 
Thomas Lord Dacres of Gillesland.

At the east end of the north isle of Welwick church is a slab with the brass 
effigies of William and Anne Wright ; beneath their feet is this inscription : " Here 
lies interred ye bodies of Willm Wright of Plewland Esqre & Ann his wife who 
after they had lived lovingly together ye space of 50 yeares in the feare of God & 
love of men, finished a faire pilgrimage to a Joyfvll Paradice. Ann, ye 28 of 
Deer, in ye year of grace 1618 & ye said Willm ye 23 of Avgvst A. Dni. 1621 
whose sovles God hath in his blessed keeping. Memoria Justi vivet in Sternum." 
It 'would be interesting to know whether Anne Wright were really a lunatic person, 
or whether, as is riot impossible, she may have resorted to a strange method of 
dissimulation that she might be held excused from joining in religious services 
which were hateful to her. 

John and Christopher Wright, the Powder Plot fanatics, were slain at Holbeach 
with arms in their hands, and thus escaped .the extreme penalties of high treason. 

t No doubt one of the Thorpes of Welwick Thorpe. His place in the pedigree 
is not clear. He may have been a priest ; the alias would rather lead to that 

Robert Thorpe, the priest who suffered in 1591, was, I think, of this family. 
Bishop Challoner gives the following account, of him (vol. ii. p. 264), compiled 
from the Douay diary and catalogues, from Ribadeneira, chap. 7, Champney's 
manuscript, and the relation of the Lady Babthorpe :

College, during its residence at Rheims ; from, whence he was sent upon the English 
mission, May 9th, 1585. He employed his labours in Yorkshire, his native country. 
Dr. Champney, who was acquainted with him, writes of him as follows : ' This holy 
priest, whom I knew in my younger days, and to whom I have often confessed my 
sins, had laboured for a long time, and with very great fruit, in the vineyard of the 
Lord. He was a man of low stature, of infirm health, and but indifferent in point 
of learning, but of great devotion and piety ; but though he was naturally timorous 
and weak, yet he suffered death for the Catholic faith with great constancy and 

" The manner of his apprehension is thus related by the lady Babthorpe, who 
then lived in that country, but after her husband's decease, became a nun at 
Louvain. 'To my remembrance,' says she, 'it is twenty-nine years since we 
were committed to Sheriff- Hutton castle : the president (of the North) was then 
the Earl of Huntingdon, and the archbishop's name was Piers, who had been a 
priest. And for the manner of Mr. Thorp's taking and death, I can remember 
no more, but that on a Palm- Sunday's evening, (or rather on the eve of Palm 
Sunday), he was, by an evil neighbour, seen to go into Thomas -Watkinson's 
house ; or, as some said, that neighbour saw some of Thomas Watkinson's ser- 
vants get palms, which was sufficient to assure them that he had a priest in his 
house, for they knew well that priests used much to come to his house ; 
but they could not be sure of the time ; so now thinking they were sure' 
of one, they went with speed to one Mr. John Gates, a -justice of peace, living in 
Houldone, some three miles off, one who was always ready on such evil employ- 
ments ; who, with his company, came so early on Palm- Sunday in the morning, 
that, as I heard, they took them in their beds, and carried them away to York, 
where they were martyred. The manner of their deaths I remember not, only 
this, that the good old man (Watkinson) was offered his ljf if he would go to 
church, which he refusing, was martyred with the priest. ' 

" This Thomas Watkinson, who suffered with Mr. Thorp, was a yeoman of 
Menthorpe, in Yorkshire, a good religious Catholic, who lived a kind of solitary 
life, and afforded what aid and assistance he could to the missioners. He suffered 
with great constancy, though naturally he was also timorous, and now advanced 
in years. Mr. Thorpe was condemned merely upon account of his priesthood ; 
and Mr. Watkinson merely for harbouring priests. The former was hanged, 
drawn, and quartered ; the latter only hanged. They suffered at York, May 31,

* The family of Aired or Alured, as they more frequently wrote their name, 
were settled in the neighbourhood of Hedon ; they were in the lower rank of the 
gentry. I am not aware that any pedigree of the race has been published. A John 
Alured was M.P. for the borough of Hedon in the Long Parliament. He entered 
the army at the beginning of the great Civil War, and rose to be a colonel of horse. 
He served as one of the King's judges, and signed the warrant for execution. His 
own death took place before the Restoration, but his name was put in the Act of 
Attainder and his estates forfeited. Two of his kinsmen, Lancelot and Matthew 
Alured, were active servants of the Parliament. 

t Spetch, in the folk speech of Yorkshire, means a patch. I have never heard 
it used on this side the Humber, but we used to have it far in the south of Lincoln-

spetches." Leva-ton Church Accts. in Arch&ologia, xli. 367. The personal name 
of Fetch, which is found at Kirton in Lindsey and elsewhere, is much more 
probably a form of Spetch than of the Norman Peche, which is quaintly Latinized 
De Peccato.

upon-Hull, still commemorates the father of this Robert Dalton, as follows : 

" Here Ijjet^ t^o'as balton i^rise manor of Kingston frpon bjill tnardjjante of i\t

On a brass plate, over the heads of incised figures of a man and two women, 
are these words :

lizabeth Doullman* widdow, Recusant for one yeare 

* This family was settled in the neighbourhood of Pickering in the reign of 

Edward the Third. They were of Pocklington in the. 1 5th century. Thomas 

Dolman, son and heir of William Dolman of that place, was aged twenty-three in 

38 Henry VIII. (Inq. P.M.) He probably conformed to Protestantism, as we find 

him a Justice of Peace in 1584. His death took place 3rd April, 1589. His wife, the 

"widdow" of the present return, was Elizabeth, daughter of John Vavasour, and 

sister and heiress of Peter Vavasour of Spaldington. Her will bears date igth 

Nov. 1614. They had issue, 1st, Sir Robert Dolman, Knight, who married 

Eleanor, daughter of Sir William Mallory of Studley, who died nth March, 

1628, from whom the present representative of the family is sprung ; 2nd,, John 

Dolman, of Gray's Inn, who died sine prole, 1586 ; 3rd, Marmaduke Dolman of 

Messingham, co. Lincoln ; 4th, Peter ; and 5th,. William ; and three daughters, 

Anne, Bridget, and Jane. The above Marmaduke is said to have been in arms 

for the king, and to have lost his life at Marston Moor. A traditionary account 

of his burial has even been handed down, but there seems to be some error, for if 

alive then, he must have been far too aged to do battle with the sword. His son 

Marmaduke was of Bottesford, co. Lincoln. He married Anne, daughter of 

John Shaw, the owner of the dissolved preceptory of Knights Hospitallers at that 

place. The lady was buried with her kin in their aisle in Bottesford Church, nth 

April, 1652. This Marmaduke was certainly in arms for the king, and lost his 

estate thereby (Commons Journals, vii. 202). He would have escaped with a 

fine had he not in 1648, when all rational hope for the success of the royal cause

was over, joined with his tenants and other followers the body of rash adventurers 
who, hoping that the country would rise to deliver the imprisoned monarch, 
attacked Lincoln Castle, and released from custody all the felons confined therein. 
After this questionable exploit they marched on to Gainsburgh, where they 
arrived on Saturday, the 1st of July. Mr. Edward Rossetter, of Somerby near 
Brigg (the Sir Edward Rossetter of the Restoration) was a near neighbour of Mr. 
Dolman's, but then a distinguished officer in the service of the Parliament ; at this 
time he was in command of Belvoir Castle. No sooner did the news reach him of 
the wild doings in Lindsey than he gave the alarm to his brother officers at Notting- 
ham, Leicester, Northampton, and Derby. Their troops were soon got together, 
. and when united they amounted to about five hundred and fifty men. With these 
Rossetter marched in the direction of the Royalists. On his way he fell in with a 
troop of horse from Lynn, under the command of Captain Taylor. On Monday 
night they slept in a field at Waddington near Lincoln. At three o'clock they 
marched through the city, and there the Colonel gained knowledge of the fact 
that the Cavaliers had departed from Gainsburgh in the direction of Newark. 
Rossetter at once' gave chase, and arrived at Newark that evening, when he found 
that the party of whom he was in search were quartered at the little village of 
Bingham, some six miles away. The forces of the Parliament were in motion 
again early 'on Wednesday morning. They came up with the Cavaliers in a large 
field of beans in the parish of Willoughby, about seven miles from Nottingham. 
The battle was stubborn, and for some little time doubtful, but the Puritans were 
completely victorious. In this fight Mr. Marmaduke Dolman and many others of 
the Catholic gentry of Lincolnshire and Yorkshire were made prisoners. The 

official list may be seen in A n Impartial relation of the great victoiy obtained 

by the conjoyned forces under the command of 'Col. JSdw. Rossetter 

July 5, 1648. It is also given in an abbreviated and somewhat corrupted 

form in Rush-worth, part iv. vol. ii. p. 1184. This gallant gentleman did not 
live to regain his estate. He was buried at Bottesford, 2Oth Dec., 1654. 
The arms of the family have been variously given : Dugdale blazons them 
Azure a fess dancettee or, between eight garbs of the second, banded gules. Accord- 
ing to Yorke there were only six garbs. The seals of the family attached to title 

deeds among the Bottesford Manor records give the arms as a chevron 

between six garbs

t The pedigree begins with a certain Patricius de Langdale, who is said to have

can be supported by record evidence I do not know. This William was the son 
and heir of Richard Langdale of Estrop, by his spouse Idiosa, daughter and 
one of the co-heiresses of Marmaduke Thorkeld of that place. William married

lady died August, '1604. 2nd, Bridget, daughter of Thomas Metham of Metham, 
and widow of Thomas Hoppon of Armley ; she died March, 1627. Her 
husband survived until 27th September, 1645. Paulson's Holderness, ii. 254. 

* Sir Marmaduke Grimston, eldest son and heir of Thomas Grimston, of 
Grimston Garth and Goodmanham, by his wife Dorothy, daughter and heiress of 
Marmaduke Thwayts of Smeton. He married Frances, daughter of George Gill, 
of . . . '. . co. Hertford. Sir Marmaduke had, according to Dugdale's pedigree, 
a brother who bore the same Christian name. This Marmaduke married Anne, 
daughter of Sir William Dalton of Hawkeswell. It will be observed that Sir 
Marmaduke had a servant called John Grimston, no doubt a relative. We have so 
long passed out of that state of society where the attendants of the gentry were 
often their equals in blood, that it is sometimes necessary to point out that the word 
servant attached to a man or a woman's name in documents before the middle of 
the seventeenth century does not indicate that the persons so described were 
of peasant lineage. 

+ The surname of this worthy knight has been left out by the person who 
made the transcript from the original returns. It is probable Sir Philip 
Stapylton, of Warter near Pocklington, was the person meant. 

$ Sir Thomas Metham was the eldest son and heir of Thomas Metham of 
Metham, by his wife Katherine, daughter of Sir William Bellassys of New- 
borough. He married Barbara, daughter of Sir Philip Constable of Everingham. 
Sir Thomas was slain ex farte regis at Marston Moor. The fact of his being in a 
position to make this return shows that at that time he was not a Roman Catholic. 
Most of his relatives were attached to the old religion. His nephew, Lieutenant- 
Colonel Jordan Metham, \vho was killed in the service of the king at Pontefract 
Castle, is stated by Bishop Challoner to have been a Catholic.

* These persons perhaps took their name from Garwick, or Garrick, a hamlet 
in the parish of Heckington, near Sleaford. David Garrick, the dramatist, was 
sprang from a noble family of Bordeaux, named De la Garrique. David Garrick, the 
founder of the English branch of the family, fled from Bordeaux in 1685, to escape 
from religious persecution. He died in 1694. His son Peter, afterwards a lieu- 
tenant of dragoons, was David Garrick's father. Notes and Queries, fourth series,
