227 STRAND (by Temple Bar) 



Six years to our credit. Well, that is more than was 
allotted us by some of our critics. Our continued existence 
has encouraged at least two other adventures to be announced. 
We shall see if there is room for five periodicals devoted to 
genealogy and family history in place of the two which held 
the field when our own course begun. 

If we can dispel the common idea, that genealogy is a study 
ministering to vainglory, pretence and social exclusiveness, a 
great step in advance will be gained. If genealogy teaches 
anything it teaches the absurdity of claims for consideration 
based on long descent: the proof that evidence exists to-day 
to show the descent and illustrate the career of almost every 
English-born person for the last four or five hundred years, 
and only awaits indexing, is one of the purposes we set 
before us. 

The Pedigree Register welcomed and supported The Inter- 
national Genealogical Directory; together with that useful work 
it became an instrument in the formation of The Society of 
Genealogists of London, incorporated in May 1911, whose 
official organ it has become. That Society, essentially a 
collecting and indexing Society, with over two hundred 
members, has every prospect of a long and prosperous career. 

The principal functions of The Pedigree Register will 
continue to be the preservation in print of material not easily 
accessible elsewhere and the making clear what records there 
are of this kind, where they are, and what they contain. All 
that remains is to express our deep sense of the obligation 
under which we rest to the contributors and subscribers who 
help us to carry it on.

The Pedigree Register 

JUNE 1910] [VoL. II, No. 13. 


Genealogy is coming to its own. The Philistine has been abroad, 
but no longer gibes ; at least, not so much as of yore. Quite a number 
of people, of all descriptions, here and abroad, are taking a serious 
interest in their pedigrees, and find true details of their forbears as 
worthy of attention, and more interesting than, a 2Oth. century 
romance. Genuine devotees may be complaisant, for their interest 
in dry bones is not now suspect ; nor need they be accused of a 
hankering after royal descents, titled ancestors, or even of the 
emotions aroused by crested notepaper or a coachman's button. That 
is passing, and one can afford to look around and review the situation, 
take stock of prospects, and, in the light of progress, make a fresh 
valuation of the science and art of pedigree-hunting and collecting. 

The claims of pedigree research as a hobby, and in some degree, 
though a small one, as a contribution to modern thought, may well 
be worthy of discussion. Looked at from any point of view there 
are the " high, " but certainly not " dry, " scientific theories and 
deductions to be drawn from a study of the humblest pedigree ; and 
the students of heredity and eugenics go, for some of their facts at 
least, to the dry and apparently small details of a family tree. These 
details are the unconsidered trifles which go to explain the theories 
of descent and ultimately establish the connections of heredity as a 
science with the other facts drawn from a study of education and 
environment. The three, heredity, education and environment, form 
the basis of our examination of the individual man. Anthropology 
and the study of race may cast their nets wider, but are surely 
incomplete without the facts supplied by these. 

It is only within the last twenty or thirty years however, that the 
importance of heredity as a factor in human nature has received 
serious attention. SULLY'S Psychology , about the best practical work 
on the faculties of the mind and educational training, was written well 
within the recent period of scientific interest in heredity, and some 


interesting pages of this work discuss, but all too briefly, the place of 
heredity as it concerns the individual child. Mr. SULLY makes us 
feel how much there is to be known of the true principles, pre-natal, 
and drawing their roots from the past, that go to the development 
and after bringing-up of a human being. Shortly, that is the educa- 
tional value of the study or biological facts. 

Much is being done under the name of eugenics to stimulate 
research in family history, and the medical science of the day awaits 
the results of these systematic investigations, not to mention their 
implied value to sociology and the reform of our criminal system. 

On the aesthetic side the revived interest in art of the last generation 
has brought heraldry out of the limbo of things of no account, and 
the sneers of Lord CHESTERFIELD as to the business of a Herald would 
receive scant attention in this age of stamp-collecting, coin-collecting, 
and curio-hunting, all of which have their devotees, their books, their 
societies, and their not undistinguished patrons. We mention these 
last hobbies, by way of comparison, the taste for them not being 
necessarily bound up with the liking for coat-armour, or the technique 
of quarterings. 

Is it not true that at all times the balance of sympathy inclines 
to the human and literary ? And, pace our thorough-going 
scientific man, it is this and not the purely scientific side of human 
nature that draws and interests. It is quite possible to take an 
interest in heredity pure and simple as a science, in shorr. It is 
perhaps more usual, with most of us, tp dwell on its literary and 
personal aspects, and there is little doubt that GALTON'S Hereditary 
Genius and Inquiries into the Human Faculty and Development^ have in- 
duced many to follow the subject, from its human and biographical 
attractions, as much as from its scientific uses. Be it remembered, 
that Sir Francis GALTON'S was the first voice raised in defence of 
research into family history as a means of throwing light on the facts 
of human nature. In the region of romance Mr. Thomas HARDY had 
grappled with the orthodox theory of free-will. Whether we agreed 
with him or not, Tess of the Durberuilles roused a hornet's nest at the 
time, and the religious reviews were a chosen tilting-ground for the 
defenders of the old view against this doughty heretic, who retorted 
in a preface to the second edition. That is ancient history, but 
mention of Mr. HARDY is not to discount the incidental, and, in many 


cases, intentional, part that hereditary data have borne in the produc- 
tion of more than one modern novel. Perhaps BjOrnstjerne BJ^RNSON, 
who has just passed away from us, is the best example of these, and 
we might add, in the conventional phrase, that The Heritage of the 
Kurts is a work that " no library should be without. " How far the 
same interests may be responsible for the less reputable class of fiction 
is not for us to consider here. It is enough to reflect that literature, 
along with ethics, is prone to vagaries, and that heresy may be the 
motif of a romance ; though we would fain rescue Doctor Pascal from 
the odium usually attached to the run of ZOLA'S works, for it is the 
key to the rest, a wonderful work, however rotten may be the foun- 
dations on which the other novels of the Rougon-Macquart series stand 
in their doubtful deductions and anti-mystical tone. IBSEN'S Ghosts is 
a symbol of other morbidities, and I suppose the Determinist school 
is generally reminiscent of ZOLA that is ZOLA the materialist. To 
turn from such as these, who has not read Beyond the Dreams of Avarice 
by Walter BESANT ? That romance would surely rouse the imagina- 
tion of the Philistine, who is always with us ! 

There is the utilitarian side to the question, namely, for science ; 
and there is the philosophical one, which has found its way, as we have 
seen, into general literature and fiction. Nevertheless, many of us are 
swayed as much by the antiquarian and maybe dilettante view of the 
subject, though that view is not necessarily disconnected with its more 
practical bearings reviewed above. Perhaps the antiquary and gene- 
alogist are closely related to the explorer and scientific man. The 
same elements belong to both characters ; the explorer's love of 
adventure and the physicist's passion for research ; reproduced inpetto, 
if you like, in the genealogist's quest for the unknown and sometimes 
romantic, together with his unappeasable curiosity for small details. 
Here then is your explorer and scientist working in narrower grooves, 
writ small, and, we might add, " unhonoured and unsung ; " 
though we must not forget that the late Professor FREEMAN attributed 
functions of a similar kind to the study of topography in its relation 
to a nation's history. 

It is only, I think, very matter-of-fact people who refuse their 
sympathy to small hobbies and their possibilities. The curious thing 
is, that researches of a similar kind to genealogy hold their ground, 
or at least, escape criticism. For years and years aband of enthusiastic 


scholars has been engaged on the mystery of SHAKESPEARE. One 
does not allude here to textual emendation and philology, but to the 
human problems connected with the man, ranging from the philosophy, 
religion and outlook on life of the great poet, to the smallest details 
of his life and origin. From whom was he descended ? What sort 
of a man was he ? His business transactions the people he knew 
the people who knew him, and what they thought of him as man and 
writer side references, rare signatures, supposed portraits ; personal 
details, traditional gossip, places and persons of his plays all eagerly 
looked for and drawn into the net of the SHAKESPEARE enthusiast. 
And here, one might ask, what would now be the " Shakespeare 
question " without the labours of HALLIWELL-PHILLIPS and FRENCH, 
and especially in more recent years the valuable researches of 
Mrs. STOPES and Professor WALLACE ? That might be our stand- 
point as regards family history. It is quite possible for the average 
pedigree student to imitate the zeal shown in Shakespearean or other 
like research, at least in regard to questions concerned with his own 
descent. True, in these times, his is to be the digging and delving, 
but many a pleasant hour has been filled up to his own use and interest, 
and maybe for those who come after him, who are desirous of 

" enquiring of the former age and preparing to the search of 

their fathers. " 



The surname of BODDINGTON is most probably derived from the 
name of a place. As there are two (and may have been more) places 
of that name in England it by no means follows that all BODDINGTONS 
are related to each other. 

In Domesday Book we find a place called Boddington (" Boting- 
tune "), near Cheltenham in Gloucestershire and Upper and Lower 
Bodington, alias Boddington (one joint parish), in Chipping Warden 
hundred, Northamptonshire, (" Botendone "). 

Domesday mentions also three places called " Bodetone " in York- 
shire, in the wapentakes of Morley, Skyrack and " Anestig " respect- 
ively. RUDDER'S Gloucestershire, 1779, (p-3Oo), says that Bodington is 
from the British word * bod ', a mansion, and signified a capital house 
or mansion in the town upon the water. BAKER'S Northamptonshire, 
(1.477), conjectures that the Domesday * Botendone' is from ' boten', 
a contraction of the Saxon plural of * botl ', a habitation, and c dune ' 
or * done ', a down ; which exactly corresponds with the situation of 
the upper village, overlooking the rich pastures of Stoneton and 
Wormleighton, just over the border in Warwickshire. Upper and 
Lower Bodington lie just 20 miles north, within a three hours' horse- 
back-ride of Steeple Barton. 

The main portion of the pedigree now printed, shewing the imme- 
diate descendants of Timothy BODDINGTON of Steeple Barton, who 
died in 1736, is recast with slight additions from the Pedigree of the 
Family of Boddington, (POLLARD & Sons, Exeter, 1889, oblong folio, 
8pp). The result of a further attempt to discover the antecedents of 
the above Timothy is now printed, in the hope that further details 
may be forthcoming to make the chain complete. 

It is interesting to note that these Steeple Barton BODDINGTONS 
were, right back to Timothy, who died in 1736 (at least there is much 
fact and a strong presumption), a race of corn-millers. When 
Mr. Henry BODDINGTON of Manchester (1813-1886), visited Steeple 
Barton about 1860, there was a tradition of an old time BODDINGTON, 
a miller, a wonderful weight (sack) carrier, with a remarkably resonant 
voice (a family characteristic), which was heard distinctly across the 
valley, a mile distant. John BODDINGTON, son of Timothy, migrated 
to Cuddington in Buckinghamshire ; was there in business as a miller, 
before 1713, and died there in 1746. He it was, presumably, who 
took Cuddington wind-mill, which has been in possession of the 
family for nearly 200 years. His great-grandson, John BODDINGTON 
(1777-1839), branched off to Thame (water) corn-mill; and Timothy 
(1817-1885) John's youngest son, following up old tradition and sym- 
pathy, became a corn-miller in Manchester. 

I ask for any data, as to any BODDINGTON, anywhere, but more 
particularly as to anyone of the name in Oxfordshire, Northampton- 
shire, or Warwickshire, with a view to making a complete record of 
this old yeoman family. 




William BODINGTON appears in 1529-30, as a " hanaster", q y for 
" Hanseter, " a merchant of the Hanse. And as a member of 
the Common Council of the City of Oxford in 1534 and 1548.

The family of TIPPETTS of Gloucestershire probably originated in 
one of the settlements of Flemish Weavers which took place towards 
the close of the Middle Ages, the name being a corruption of 
Theobald in its Flemish or French form of Thibault, and the family 
continued to be associated with the cloth-weaving trade down to the 
end of the i8th century. 

There are Wills in the Probate Office at Gloucester of TIPPETTS, in 
its numerous varying forms of spelling, of Berkeley and the neigh- 
bourhood, as early as 1551, but the earliest direct ancestor to whom 
I have so far been able to trace without a break is the Richard 
TIPPETTS whose name stands at the head of the accompanying chart. 
He was a clothworker, or clothier, as the cloth-weavers of that period 
were called, and his will is dated ist April 1662, and was proved at 
Gloucester 5th March 1663. He would have been an old man at the 
time of making this will, as according to his bequests he had a grand- 
daughter already married at the time. 

Of his sons who survived him, John afterwards became successively a 
constructor and a commissioner in the Royal Navy under Charles II. 
and James II., and he is mentioned in both PEPYS' and EVELYN'S 
Diaries. He received a grant of arms in 1669 and was subsequently 
knighted. He left three daughters only, one of whom, Elizabeth, 
was married to Christopher COLES Esq., of Pulborough, Sussex, where 
her monument may still be seen on the north wall of the chancel of 
the Parish Church, with the arms of the two families impaled. 

William, the elder surviving son of Richard, followed in his father's 
footsteps as a clothworker, and from BIGLAND'S Gloucestershire it 
appears he was bailiff, or mayor, of Dursley two or three times. 
His will was dated yth September 1687, and proved at Gloucester 
2nd September 1691. His widow Rebecca survived him and was 
buried at Dursley in December 1707, leaving her son Richard sole 
executor and residuary legatee. 

Richard, son of the last named William and Rebecca TIPPETTS, was 
also a clothworker at Dursley, and was twice married. There is a 
monument to his son William in the church at Dursley. 


Richard, son of the preceding Richard TIPPETTS, was married to 
Dorothy BERRIMAN at Nympsfield yth April 1702, and he is described 
in the Register as " Cloathworker. " His wife was the daughter of 
the Rev d . James BERRIMAN, who in 1717 was rector of Nympsfield, 
and she was living at Frampton-on-Severn in 1747. 

James, the eldest son of the preceding, was baptised at Nympsfield 
1 6th July 1703, and married at the same place to Elizabeth SHOWELL 
in 1727. After this I have no information of him except his will, 
which was proved at Gloucester I3thjuly 1741-2. In this he is 
described as an Apothecary of Painswick, but no records of the 
baptisms of any children of his are to be found there or at Dursley or 
at Nympsfield, and in his will he only mentions " my children except- 
ing my eldest son. " However, assistance was obtained here from the 
will of his maternal uncle John BERRIMAN, apothecary, of Dursley, 
which was dated 3<Dth October 1747, and proved the I5th July 
following, at Gloucester. In this he leaves certain property to " my 
cousin James Berriman TIPPETTS, son of James TIPPETTS, of Pains- 
wick, apothecary, my nephew deceased. " 

James Berriman TIPPETTS, just mentioned, was married by licence 
at Painswick, I2th June 1758. He also was an apothecary, like his 
father, and was afterwards in practice in Long Street, Dursley, where 
he died 28th June 1782. His children are all mentioned in his will 
dated 6th June 1782, and proved at Gloucester, in the order named. 

The particulars of the descendants of his children are either from 
personal knowledge, or family papers, and from information furnished 
by descendants themselves.

Christopher HAVILAND of Mudford,

John V. S. de HAVILLAND in The Chronicle of the De Hamllands^ 
(published about 1853), makes the statement (page 10) that 
John HAVELLAND who heads the accompanying chart, son of James 
de HAVELLAND and Helena de BEAUVOIR, " purchased the Manor of 
Wilkeswood, in the Isle of Purbeck, about 1 530, and left an only 
son, John HAVELLAND, married to Mary, daughter of Thomas CAREW, 
of Higherham Manor. " I think he is mistaken, and that the accom- 
panying chart is more nearly accurate. It is put together from the 
Parish Registers of Winstone in Gloucestershire,Anthony HAVELLAND'S 
will, and the administration of Christopher HAVELLAND. He is mis- 
taken also in saying that James H AVI LAND, mayor of Salisbury, 1602- 
1603, and son of Christopher, mayor of Poole 1569, died s.p. The 
Parish Registers of St. Thomas, Salisbury, shew this to be incorrect. 

Anthony's will, the administration of Christopher, and entries in 
the Parish Registers of Winstone, which I have from the present 
rector, the Rev. A. O. TROTTER, shew that Anthony had two sets of 
cousins ; one the sons and daughters of the Rev. John HAVILAND 
(who must have been his, Anthony's, first cousin) and the others, 
Christopher, John and Mary, parents unknown. Both sets of cousins 
must have been " cousins once removed," for the Rev. John HAVILAND 
could not be the brother of John HAVILAND of Wilkeswood, nor could 
John, mentioned in the administration of Christopher, be his brother. 

I have been searching for years for the ancestry of William HA- 
VILAND, who emigrated to America, and was living in Newport, Rhode 
Island, as early as 1646, being first churchwarden of Newport in that 
year. He was made a Freeman May iyth 1653 (right to vote) ; on 
May 2ist 1656, he was Commissioner to the General Court, and in 
1667 a Representative. He married at Newport, Hannah, daughter 
of John HICKS. John HICKS was born in London about 1606, and 
emigrated with his wife in 1635. The father of John HICKS was 
Robert HICKS, born about 1575, of a Gloucestershire family. He, 
Robert, went to America on the ship Fortune, which followed the 
Mayflower with a second body of Puritans, and arrived at Weymouth, 
Massachusetts, n Nov. 1621. 

It is possible that William HAVILAND may have been the son of 
John HAVILAND, living in 1648, since his, William's, eldest son was 
named John ; or of some other member of this branch, whose parents 
are unknown and whose grandfather may have been Thomas HAVEL- 
LAND, " Gent. ", who died in 1614. I should like also to ascertain 
the ancestry of Robert HICKS, born about 1575.

which leaves nothing to be desired, these documents offer a fine field for in-

of lawsuits, which are all one can get from the present Indexes or Calendars, 
indicate who the persons were who were chiefly concerned, or what lies hidden

RECORDS IN SCOTLAND. To the student of genealogical research 
the Scottish records provide a wide and productive area to work upon. The 
late Sir William FRASER, K. C. B., who was Deputy Keeper of the Records in 
the General Register House, Edinburgh, and a writer of numerous works relative 
to the histories of noble and other families in Scotland, relied to a considerable 
extent for pedigree matter upon the Register of Tailzies or Entails. This 
Register contains valuable information regarding pedigrees of families who were 
interested in heritable estate. Entails were first formally legalised by the 
Statute of 1685 and concern the mode under which estates or heritable subjects 
were conveyed from one heir to another. They are complete from 1685 to 
the present day. As is well known, all land originally belonged to the Crown. 
Charters were granted and gifts or grants were made to favorites and others for 
services rendered to their Sovereigns, all of which grants in Scotland are recorded 
in the Registers of the Great Seal and the Privy Seal. It must be borne in 
mind, however, that the above applies more particularly to the nobility and 
landed gentry. 

A Register more suitable to the aims of The Pedigree Register is that of the 
Services of Heirs, which is complete from 1545 to the present day. This is 
most valuable in the tracing of family histories. The records are kept in the 
Chancery Office in the Register House. Records of a much earlier date than 
1545 were known to exist, but unfortunately they perished in the burning of 
Holyrood in May 1544. 

Another important office is that of the Lyon King of Arms. In this depart- 
ment, also attached to the Register House, there is a Register of Genealogical 
and Birth Brieves from 1727 to the present time ; also Registers of Birth 
Brieves, Funeral Entries and Escutcheons from 1672, and a large number of 
unofficial MSS., such as family histories, pedigrees, inventories of private charter 
chests, &c. 

With regard to the social life of the community in the early days, Scotland 
was not unlike England in that respect, for it is known that barons, chiefs, and 
large landowners held their Domestic Courts and were known as Baron Baillies. 
They had considerable power over their dependents or vassals and could administer 
punishment even to the extent of execution when occasion demanded. So far 
as known, however, no records of such Domestic Courts are in existence ; a 
circumstance which is much to be regretted. 

As regards the Parish Registers, they are not what could be desired. In 
many parishes there are long blank periods, and numerous volumes have been 
either burned or lost. 

Another source from which much detail can be gathered is to be found in 


the Judicial Records. These begin with the system adopted in the reign of 
David I. (1124-53) wnen the law was more effectually enforced upon the 
inhabitants of the country generally. This was accomplished by the appoint- 
ment of Sheriffs, who had definite judicial authority in the districts or shires 
assigned to them, and by the grants of Regality and Barony conferred on the 
great vassals of the Crown in their respective fiefs. These appear in a series of 
volumes entitled "Acta Dominorum Councili ", and run from 1478 to 1532, 
after which they are classified and arranged under the court of Session Records. 
Attached to the Register House is the Historical Department, where 
searches of a literary character can be made. This department supervises the 
issue of those publications of Scottish records which have done so much towards 
bringing early history to light. The earlier Scottish records were written in 
Latin by the Papal Notaries. The reign of Alexander III. (1249-86) being 
one of continued prosperity, the accumulation of documents in his time must 
have been considerable. This is shewn by the Calendar or Inventory of 
documents in the King's Treasury at Edinburgh Castle, made in the year 1282, 
which is now preserved in London, and is the oldest official public record of 

Scottish writs now extant. o/^n/rT-T^rTr T T-

BURN. Major W. Bruce ARMSTRONG in his Bruces of Alrth (pp. 56-59) 
deals with the above family. He says there is no evidence for the marriage of 
Edward BRUCE and Agnes de ERTH, or that he was son of Robert BRUCE of 
Clackmannan, or even that he ever existed at all. Moreover, it would appear 
that the first of the family of Airth, of whom we have any authentic account, 
is Alexander BRUCE of Stanehouse. He apparently was not a knight ; and his 
wife * Jonete ' was not necessarily a LIVINGSTON. The Alexander BRUS or 
BRUCE of the Stanehouse and of Airth who died before 1487 married Margaret, 
daughter of Sir Malcolm FORRESTER of Torwoodhead and had six sons. They 
were (i) John who died young ; (2) Sir Alexander of Brigham and Earlshall ; 
(3) Edward of Kinnaird ; (4) Lucas of Cultmalundie ; (5) Robert of Auchen- 
bowie and Bynning ; and (6) David. 

The fifth son, Robert BRUCE, held the properties of Auchenbowie, Carnouck, 
and Bynning. In December 1500, Andrew, Abbot of Newbattle, gives to 
Robert BRUCE of Bynning and his wife the monastery lands of West Binning 
in Linlithgowshire, they paying four shillings yearly. Auchenbowie was 
murdered by Robert LIVINGSTON of Breedlaw and his adherents. He had 
married in 1490 (i) Mary, or Margaret, PRESTOUN ; and (2), on 28 July 1506, 
Margaret, daughter of Sir James SANDILANDS of Calder. By the latter he had 
three sons Robert the second of Auchenbowie, John executor of his father's 


will in 1517, and Andrew of Powfoullis, also executor. There was probably 
also a daughter Marjorie : for " Alexander DRUMMOND, fourth of Carnouck, 
married Marjorie BRUCE, sister to Robert BRUCE, laird of Auchenbowie ". 
From them descended William DRUMMOND of Hawthornden, the poet. 

Robert BRUCE II. of Auchenbowie, was depute of Lord ERSKINE in 1551 ; 
and compounded for the slaughter of his father in 1573. He had a son John 
and from this date for over a century the pedigree is in a fragmentary condition. 

Robert BRUCE of Greensyde is called third son of Robert of Auchenbowie ; 
he was probably a son of Robert II. 

Marjorie BRUCE is served heir-portioner of her father, Robert BRUCE of 
Greensyde, 17 Oct. 1599. 

Marjory BRUCE is served heir-portioner of her father's brother's son, Robert 
BRUCE, portioner of the HALLS of Airth, in lands in Greensyde 17 July 1619; 
and again 22 Jan. 1620. About 1619 she marries William LIVINGSTON of 
Easter Grenezairdis. They have a charter 25 Aug. 1619, in which she is 
mentioned as eldest lawful daughter of the late Robert BRUCE of Greensyde, 
and possessor of parts of HALLS of Airth. 

Susan BRUCE is served heir-portioner of Robert BRUCE portioner of HALLS of 
Airth, son of her uncle, 22 Jan. 1620. 

Susan BRUCE is served heir-portioner of Alexander BRUCE her uncle in part 
of HALLS of Airth, 10 March 1629. 

Susan BRUCE is served heir-portioner of Robert BRUCE of Greensyde, her 
father, 10 March 1629. 

Robert BRUCE of Auchenbowie married early in the seventeenth century Mar- 
garet, third daughter of John BOYLE of Kelburn, who adhered to Queen Mary. 

Robert BRUCE of Auchenbowie is on an inquest of 19 Feb. 1631. 

Alexander BRUCE of Auchenbowie is served heir of his father, John BRUCE of 
Auchenbowie, on 2 April 1631. 

Robert BRUCE of Auchenbowie is served heir of Susan BRUCE (legitimate 
daughter of Robert BRUCE of Greensyde, third son of Robert BRUCE of Auchen- 
bowie) daughter of the brother of his great-grandfather, 25 April 1646. 

Robert BRUCE, younger, of Auchenbowie, and Margaret CRAWFORD, his 
future spouse, and Robert BRUCE elder of Auchenbowie, are all mentioned 9 
July 1662. 

Robert BRUCE of Auchenbowie and Margaret CRAUFORD his spouse, are 
mentioned 21 June 1666. 

Robert BRUCE younger of Auchenbowie and William BRUCE his brother- 
german, are mentioned 17 September 1666. This Robert had succeeded 
before 1678 when called < now of Auchenbowie '. 

Robert BRUCE elder of Auchenbowie, assigns a bond to William BRUCE 
second son of said Robert, 29 January 1667. 



Robert BRUCE of Auchenbowie is infefted in the lands of Greensyde of HALLS 
of Airth, 28 January 1670. 

William BRUCE, brother-german to Robert BRUCE of Auchenbowie, marries 
Jonet daughter of James ALEXANDER, portioner of Redheuch, 10 Feb. 1676. 

Griselda BRUCE is served heir to her father William BRUCE, brother-german 
of Robert BRUCE of Auchenbowie, 3 Sept. 1680. 

John BRUCE of Auchenbowie died 1694, when his eldest daughter Janet, 
wife of William, eldest son of William BRUCE of Newtoune, is served heir 
to him. 

William BRUCE was outlawed for murdering Charles ELPHINSTONE of Airth 
on 29 April 1699 ; and his wife Janet, who died childless before 29 Dec. 1708, 
made over Auchenbowie to her second sister Margaret BRUCE and her husband 
Major George MONRO. 

There are divers inaccuracies in the pedigrees or MONRO of Bearcrofts and 
MONRO or Auchenbowie contained in the late Mr. Alexander MACKENZIE'S 
History of the Munros of Fowlis (1898, pp. 311-321), for the correction of 
some of which I am indebted to Mr. John A. INGLIS of 2 Rothesay Place, 
Edinburgh, a descendant of Professor Alexander MONRO (primus). 

Sir Alexander MONRO of Bearcrofts, M. P. for the County of Stirling 1690- 
1702, by his wife Lillias EASTON (omitted by MACKENZIE), had two sons. 
The elder, Major George MONRO, sold the estate of Bearcrofts immediately on 
inheriting (about 1705), to Patrick HALDANE of Gleneagles, and married 
Margaret BRUCE of Auchenbowie as stated above. Their eldest son Alexander 
MONRO II., of Auchenbowie, Lieutenant in MONTGOMERY'S Regiment, married 
Ann, daughter of Sir Robert STEWART of Tilliecoultry, a Lord of Session, and 
uncle of the first Earl of BUTE. MACKENZIE slays Alexander in his father's 
lifetime ; transforming his wife, Ann STEWART, into his step-mother. The 
son of Alexander and Ann MONRO, George MONRO III. of Auchenbowie, for 
many years H. M's Physician at Minorca, sold Auchenbowie to his father's 
first-cousin Professor Alexander MONRO (primus) the famous Anatomist. 
Dr. George MONRO'S second son, Lieutenant-General William Hector MONRO, 
sometime Governor of Trinidad, became by his marriage in 1796 with 
Philadelphia BOWER, I. of Edmondsham, Dorset. 

John, younger son of Sir Alexander MONRO of Bearcrofts, was surgeon in 
WILLIAM III.'s army in Flanders and father of Professor Alexander MONRO 
(primus), who purchased Auchenbowie. This estate is still held by his family ; 
the late owner having been David Binning MONRO, Provost of Oriel College, 
Oxford, the Homeric scholar. 

I shall be much obliged for any further details concerning the BRUGES of 



St. Margaret's, Malvern. 


HENRY DE DALE. (A forgotten pluralist). Among the Patent Rolls in 
1328 we find a Commission of Oyer and Terminer to settle a complaint that 
Henry del DALE and others had broken into the house of Henry de LATHUM at 
Hale in Lancashire. 

In 1335 among the Papal Registers there is a grant to him of the Canonry 
and Prebend of Lincoln, notwithstanding he has the church of Walstanton in 
the Diocese of Lincoln, value 40 marks. 

From the Close Rolls in November 1337 we find Henry, Earl of LANCASTER, 
has leave to grant to Isabella, his daughter, and to Henry de la DALE, the manor 
of Estgarston, in Berkshire. 

In February 1338 there is a ratification to him of the Prebend of Downham, 
in the church of St Mary, Lincoln, and he is then described as the " King's 
Clerk " ; whilst in May of the same year he obtains the Prebend of Shares- 
hull, in the King's free chapel of Penkridge. 

In July 1339, Matilda, Countess of ULSTER, (sister in law of Edward III.), 
supplicates the King to grant her and Master Henry de la DALE, clerk, the 
custody of the land in the realm belonging to the alien Abbey of Caen in 
Normandy, to the value of ^200 per annum, in part payment of ^300 granted 
her for the murder of her husband in Ireland, as she does not dare to go to 
Ireland to see after her estates there. The following year there is a similar 
application for the land of Fontrevalt, both of which are duly accorded her, and 
we also find permission for Henry de DALE to cut their wood to the value of 
40 ; whilst in July 1339 John de MOWBRAY has license to enfeoffhim of the 
Manors of Thirsk, Hovyngham, Burton in Lonsdale, Kirkby Malzard, with 
the chace of Nidderdale, and the Manor of Epworth, with all knights' fees, 
advowsons, chaces, warrens and appurtenances for him to regrant in tail to him 
or Joan his wife and their right heirs. 

In 1344 he has an indulgence to choose a confessor. Once again we find him 
in the Papal Registers, in February 1345, where he is described as an M. A., B. 
C. L., and M. B., and is provided with a Canonry in Wells, and a promise of 
any dignity short of the episcopal, notwithstanding that he has the like in Lin- 
coln, Salisbury (Prebend of Farindon), Wolverhampton, Penkridge, the warden- 
ship of St Mary Magdalen Chapel in Preston, and the church of Heigham in 
the Diocese of Lincoln ; and by 1347 he is also holding the church of Wigan in 
the Diocese of Lichfield. 

In May 1347 John de THORPE of Repingale acknowledges a debt to him of 
joo marks, and in October 1348 he himself acknowledges owing Simon SYMEON 
marks, and, in 1349, 300 to Henry de WALTON, parson of Preston. 

1349 he is dead, as we find various people applying for his man-

HUXLEY (I. 118,205). The parentage of George, Thomas, and James 
HUXLEY, brothers, is proved by Mr. J. G. BRADFORD'S note at the latter 
reference as to the ancestry of George who married Catherine ROBINSON, and 
George's Funeral Certificate mentions his brothers Thomas and James. 
Mrs. Anne GALLARD was not their sister, but the daughter of Thomas HUXLEY, 
of St. Vedast, Foster Lane, as stated at page 118. The reference to the 
Visitation of Cheshire (Pedigree Register, I. 365) completely supports Mr. 
BRADFORD'S most acceptable correction at page 205. Doubtless James HUXLEY 
(page 1 1 8), baptised at Edmonton, 6 November 1614, is the James HUXLEY of 
Dornford, Oxfordshire (page 122). He married, I believe, Elizabeth, daughter 
of Sir William BARKHAM, and had Jane, who married Sir Nicholas PELHAM, 
M. A., M. P., son of Sir Thomas PELHAM, Bart., by his third wife Margaret, 
daughter of Sir Henry VANE of Fairlawn, Kent, and Elizabeth, who married 
Robert CRESSETT, of Upton Cressett and Cound, Shropshire. 

The Will of Thomas HUXLEY of Skimpans (page 1 1 8), dated 1 2 October 
1685, was proved 10 March, 1695-6, (P.C.C.) Skimpans is given as in 
North Mimms, Hertfordshire. The Will of Katherine, widow of John DENT 
(page 1 1 8), of Windsor, Berkshire, was proved in 1637, (P.C.C.) The arms of 
HUXLEY of Brindley, in the parish of Acton, Cheshire, are stated in the Visitation 
of that county, 1613 (Harleian Society's Publication), as Ermine, on a bend coined 
gules 3 crescents or, a crescent for difference. I very greatly regret my blunder at 
page 1 1 8, with respect to the parents of George, Thomas, and James HUXLEY. 

Funeral Certificate. George HUXLEY, 1627. He was buried at Edmonton 
10 May 1627. "Son John HUXLEY (sonne and heire) about 28 years,

GENEALOGICAL PROBLEM, No. i. In the early 'twenties of last 
century, a bright, promising, boy of six or seven ; father unknown but child 
known to be illegitimate ; considerable competition amongst several well-to-do 
families to adopt him ; secured by one of them on payment of a premium of 
4000 ; did well afterwards in life ; strong likeness to George IV. ; names of 
mother and adopting parents known. How to prove his parentage ? 


[Probably not possible to prove parentage, but NEMO might try Privy Purse 
office for possible record of payments-out to adopting parents. Might be pos- 


sible to get at banking account of supposed father ; bankers are prohibited by 
law from destroying old ledgers. If the young man married after 1837 Somer- 
set House Register might be tried to see what is said as to bridegroom's father.

MOSSE. (I. 53, 70, 1 06). In the Pedigree Register, No. 3, a pedigree of 
the MOSSE family was given, but in later numbers it was shown that this pedigree 
was incorrect, part of the entries relating to MOSSE of Postwick and part to 
the Moss family of Cork. If the Pedigree Register is to be of any real service to 
present as well as to future generations, it seems to me that it would be advisable 
to publish correct pedigrees (as far as at present known) of these two families. 
Perhaps the two gentlemen responsible for the information already contributed 
would kindly take these matters in hand; as the publication of an incorrect 
pedigree in your journal may cause endless trouble to the unwary and 
inexperienced genealogist. 

In the pedigree on p. 53, Charles MOSSE, a physician of Hull, is mentioned. 
I have seen the Registers of St. Mary's, Lowgate, Hull, and found an entry : 
" 1730, Charles Moss, gent., buried Jan. 20." (/. e. 1731, new style). I 
think this Charles Moss must have had some connection with Beverley, 
because there was formerly a Monument in St. Mary's Church, Beverley, to Dr. 
Charles Moss, who died in 1731 aged 46 years. This Monument is referred 
to in POULSON'S Bever/ac, vol. II., p. 758, published in 1829. ^ went over to 
Beverley some time ago to try to find it, but was told that it had probably been 
destroyed or covered up in some of the restorations and alterations since that 
date. To which family does that Charles Moss belong ? 

I am interested in another family of Moss, some members of which were 
settled in Hull and Yorkshire, and this family has been traced back to about 
1710 at Thorner and Preston (Yorkshire). Any information about this family 
would be of interest to me. Some of their descendants in recent times bear 
names well known in connection with our public schools. (Shrewsbury, Harrow,

" The day that thou seest this letter of mine, take with thee 
...such people that thou knowest, and seek out all the tablets 
which are in their houses... And if there be any... good for 
my palace, search for it and find it and send it to me. " 
Thus wrote a king in the Babylonian language more than two 
thousand years ago, on a piece of clay one could put into one's waist- 
coat pocket. To-day these hoards of precious manuscripts, on baked 
clay, are being zealously sought for amongst the ruins of the buried 
cities of Arabia. Who shall say that we of this present era will not 
revert to the use of clay tablets, and impress upon them records, 
perhaps in a kind of shorthand character, when in our turn we realize 
the transitory nature of paper and parchment, stone and brass ? 

In England we possess our caches of unknown manuscripts amongst 
which research is often rewarded with trouvailles of the highest 
importance. Professor WALLACE'S recent Shakespearean discoveries 
form a case in point. These records await only an excavator with a 
few hundreds at his command each year to yield up their treasures. 
In the belief that systematic working is better than the casual 
tunnelling and mining of amateur fossickers it is proposed to form a 
SOCIETY OF GENEALOGISTS, whose principal function will be the collect- 
ing, exploration, and indexing of English records rather than the 
printing of them. A Maecenas might imitate the writer of the ancient 
Babylonian letter already quoted, but a practical scheme for everyday 
purposes is one which, by means of collective effort, will bring to the 
ordinary inquirer, with the least expenditure of time and energy, a 
body of evidence, and direct reference to documentary evidence, con- 
cerning any place or any family in the kingdom. 


It is proposed to form, in a central position in London, a Genea- 
logical and Topographical, Historical and Biographical, Reference 
Library for the use of the Fellows, Members and Associates of the 
proposed SOCIETY OF GENEALOGISTS. The contents of the library 
will naturally fall into five divisions : 

I. Printed volumes. 

II. Volumes of MSS. 


III. " Documents " including original MSS., lists of documents, engraved 
and other portraits, copies and abstracts of deeds, wills, pedigrees, tombstone 
inscriptions, pamphlets, extracts from periodicals, newspaper extracts, and 
the like, arranged under 



IV. A great Consolidated Index in one alphabet, on slips, on the Card 
Index system. 

V. A Subject Index on cards, with the object of bringing Richard SIMS'S 
well-known Manual for the Genealogist^ Topographer and Legal Antiquary 
up to date. 

The work of the Library, it is proposed, shall be undertaken by a 
paid Librarian (part or whole of his time), and two (or more) paid 

Committees of Members (unpaid), will be formed for the execution 
of certain desirable specific objects. 

There might be, for example : 

A Committee on the Library (printed volumes). 

A Committee on the Library (manuscript volumes). 

A Committee on " Documents ." This committee would make it its 
business to advise the Executive of original documents and records offered 
for sale, and recommend their purchase. It would draw up a circular to 
be directed to Solicitors and others asking them to send in their obsolete 
deeds and writings to the Society, rather than to the wastepaper merchant, 
and so save much valuable material from the destruction which goes on 
every day. It would see that the library was provided with all the printed 
and manuscript lists of documents obtainable. 

A Committee on Copies and abstracts of Deeds, Wills, records of lawsuits, 
State Papers, private letters, etc. This committee would collect and trans- 
cribe, in uniform style, and in duplicate, or triplicate, when necessary, 
copies and abstracts of such documents, arrange them under the principal 
surnames and places concerned, and pass them to the Librarian to be sorted 
in with the "Document" collection. 

A Committee on Copies of Tombstone Inscriptions. The business of this 
committee would be to prepare full copies of all such inscriptions available, 
transcribe them in duplicate or triplicate when necessary, sort them under 
Surnames in order of date, and under places when a place is referred to 
which is not in the parish where the monument happens to be erected. 
These also would be sorted into the " Document " collection by the 

A Committee on Marriage Registers and Marriage Licences. Its business 
would be to gather systematically a record of every entry or licence of 
Marriage prior to the beginning of General Registration in 1837, and to 
pass them to the Librarian to be sorted into the Consolidated Index (on 

A Committee on School, College, Apprenticeship and Admission Registers 
to Companies and Guilds, with functions similar to the last, and to urge 


existing bodies to print their records and throw them open to inspection 
and transcription. 
A Committee on Engraved and other Portraits, Views of places, old houses, 

etc., to collect such items for the " Document " collection. 
A Committee on Heraldry. Its business would be to bring PAPWORTH'S 
Ordinary and BURKE'S Armory up to date, providing, in the latter case, 
the date of grant or other authoritative record of the ascription of every 
known coat-of-arms. 

A Committee for Recording Pedigrees. This would be an examining body 

for pedigrees submitted to it, attesting its opinion as to authenticity after 

a scrutiny of the evidence. It would also receive, on behalf of the Society, 

such pedigrees for safe-keeping as the depositors might not wish thrown 

open for general reference until a specified number of years had passed. 

Other Committees for various special purposes would doubtless be formed. 

There is no doubt that the result of a vast amount of original 

research practically runs to waste. Our own suggestion is this. In 

the course of a year many thousands of full abstracts, giving all the 

gist of ancient documents, wills, etc., must be prepared for the use 

of genealogists and local historians all over the kingdom. If it were 

made a practice to send a duplicate copy in every case to The Society 

of Genealogists ; if these copies were filed by the Librarian, not under 

the principal families to which they relate, but under the parish, in 

order of date ; there would accrue, in a very short time, a fund of 

material for reference whose ready accessibility and value alone would 

justify the existence of a Society such as the one it is now proposed 

to form. 

Fellows and members would have access to the Library, would be 
advised periodically of notes and documents accruing likely to be of 
special interest to themselves personally, and would be at liberty to 
borrow printed books. 

Associates would have access to the Library and the privilege of 
contributing to its collections. 

The proposed Subscription for Fellows is two guineas per annum. 
For Members and Associates, one guinea. For Corresponding Asso- 
ciates, half-a-guinea. Life Fellows, a composition of ten guineas. 
Ladies would be eligible for election as Fellows, Members, or Associates. 
Inquiries and promises of support should be addressed to the Hono- 
rary Secretary, pro tern. Room 22, 227 Strand, London.

This pedigree has been fully proved and registered in the office of 
the Ulster King of Arms. As far as No. 9, the main line pedigree, 
including the whole of the early portion, was already recorded there ; 
while from the first John HAKET of Fethard to James Fitz Richard 
HACKETT (son of No. 6) it is confirmed by an old family pedigree 
now extant, dated 1586, and continued down to his own time in 1721 
by Thomas HACKETT, No. 12. The other children have been put 
in from information contained in Wills, &c. 

The ancient arms of the family, the three hakes, are carved on a 
curious stone on a pillar in Fethard church which records that Nos. 4 
and 5, (Redmond and Edmund) were " fabricatores " of the church ; 
while they also occur with the ROKEL (or ROCKLEY) arms Lozengy 
argent and gules on the tomb (1508) of the said Edmund and his 
wife in the same church. 

The other quartering, with the crest as given, and motto, Spes mea 
DeuSy is recorded in the Funeral entry of No. 8, (1639), in the 
Ulster's Office, impaling, for BROWNE, Ermine on a fess embattled 
counter-embattled sable three escallops argent. Probably these hackets, or 
plumbers' hammers, are merely a garbled form of the original fish. 

No. i. Presumably it was when the King, then Prince John, went 
to Ireland as Viceroy that William de HAKET accompanied him. 
Probably there were other members of the family with him, as the 
Irish State Papers record several persons of the name who cannot be 
found in the pedigree. 

No. 2. Andrew de HAKET is stated erroneously in the Ulster's 
pedigree to have owned Coolemine, Co. Dublin. It was his son Peter 
who acquired it in 1303 from Peter de BERMINGHAM ; and in 1328 
and 1335 his widow, Elenor le PETIT (called Emma in the Ulster's 
Pedigree), and son, John FITZ PETER, had certain transactions relating 
to the manor with the Archbishop of Dublin. 

No. 3. I have a few stray notes of the Rathmacarthy branch, but 
not sufficient to give a connected pedigree. 

No. 5. The townlands held by Edmund HACKETT'S descendants 
were Killedmond (i.e., church of Edmund), Notetown or Nodestown, 
Gambonstown and Sladoghbeg, Barony of Middlethird, Co. Tipperary. 


No. 6. The Ulster's pedigree erroneously gives his wife as Joan, 
daughter of Oliver MORRIS of Knockagh ; but her parentage is clear 
from the husband's will. The Ulster's mistake is probably due to 
references to the MORRISES as relations. The connection is through 
the WALLS of Coolnamuck. 

No. 7, is not mentioned in his brother's will. He is, however, 
given in the Ulster's pedigree, from which the pedigree of his descend- 
ants is taken. 

No. 8. John HACKETT of the funeral entry. In addition to the 
children there given he mentions " three young boys, " and " three or 
four daughters" (sic) in his will. One of his daughters married Major 
John BUTLER of Ballyclohy, and another George EVERARD. The 
family lands were confirmed to him in 1629 by Royal Letters Patent, 
but were sequestrated from his son by CROMWELL ; Fethard being in 
the territories of the ORMONDES. The lands were restored to his 
great-grandson James, then a minor, by Letters Patent of Charles II. 
in 1684. 

No. 10. Sir Thomas HACKETT was Lord Mayor 1685, Deputy 
Lieutenant for Co. Dublin, and, in 1689, M.P. for Portarlington. 
He was banker to many of the Irish nobility and lost heavily in the 
Revolution, being a staunch Jacobite. It is curious to note that his 
nephew was serving the House of Orange long before the Revolution. 

No. n. I have strong reasons for supposing that this James is the 
ancestor of HACKETT of Orchardstown, Co. Tipperary, and through 
them of the HACKETTS of Moor Park, Elm Grove, Birr, and Douras, 
and the HACKETT-MANDEVILLES of Ballydine. Further information 
on this point will be gratefully received. 

No. 12. Thomas HACKETT was a friend of GRATTAN, and is said 
to have played cards with Marie Antoinette. He dissipated the 
family property in gambling. 

No. 13. Major James HACKETT'S issue is believed to be extinct in 
the male line. 

I am anxious to trace the pedigrees of other branches of this family.

In this pedigree the links required are the parentage of Richard

inherited from his "kinsman" James, and died in 1730. The 
authorities are the PEMBERTON family deeds and papers at Halsnead 
Hall, and such usual sources of information as the records of the 
Palatinate and Duchy of Lancaster, the Public Records, local 
histories, church registers, etc. 

I should be much indebted for any light on the above points.

This is an example of how little may be known about the ancestry 
of a man who has achieved some degree of public notice. The chief fig- 
ure in the accompanying pedigree died but recently ; his biography has 
been published and contains only very scanty family particulars ; and 
though several contemporary relatives survive, the annexed particulars 
are all that an enquiry can elicit. 

Thomas Lake HARRIS, widely known as a religious mystic and 
writer of poetry which seems enigmatic to the " Philistine, " was born 
in the parish of Bletchley, the only child of a farmer and miller. As 
he went to America when five years old his career is identified with 
American rather than English interests. He visited the land of his 
birth several times, and in 1866 annexed the personality of Laurence 
OLIPHANT. It is this event which constitutes HARRIS'S claim on our 
interest, as the spiritual and mental subjugation of the " Admirable 
CRICHTON " of his day is one of the romances of real life. 

HARRIS in 1844 was minister to a " Universalist " church ; then he 
joined the Spiritualists, then the Swedenborgians, and then founded a 
religion of his own " The Brotherhood of the New Life. " In 1891 
he dedicated his Lyra Triumphalis to SWINBURNE : and announced that 
he had put on immortality and perennial youth ! 

One critic notes " Dr. DOWIE was a very simple character in com- 
parison with HARRIS. " 

It is stated that HARRIS came of " an old Puritan stock. " That 
his people were dissenters is evident ; no entry of LAKE or HARRIS is 
found in either Bletchley or Fenny Stratford Registers, and the records 
of the Baptists in Fenny Stratford are unfortunately scanty and im- 
perfect. He also claimed that his " family was descended from the 
Earl of MALMESBURY ", but no proof is offered of this assertion ; a 
similar claim, equally unsupported, is not uncommonly made by 
people of the name of HARRIS. 

American correspondents may be able to provide details of the 
father Thomas HARRIS'S second wife, the dates and places of death and 
burial ; also of Thomas Lake HARRIS'S third wife (it seems he was 
married thrice), and the names of his sons, etc.

According to the Domesday Survey, the township of Martock in 
the county of Somerset was held in chief of the Conqueror by Eustace, 
Count of BOULOGNE, whose daughter and heir conveyed it through 
marriage to Stephen, Count of BLOIS, afterwards King of England, and 
their younger son, William, Count of BOULOGNE, conceded it to his 
kinsman Pharamus de BOLONIA. 

This Pharamus was son of William and grandson of Geoffrey de 
BOLONIA, a younger brother of Count Eustace ; their eldest brother 
was the illustrious Godfrey de BOLONIA, or BOULOGNE, Duke of 
Lorraine, the famous Crusader who was elected first Christian King of 
Jerusalem. Pharamus seems to have settled the lordships of Wyde- 
combe and Ashe within his manor of Martock upon one of his 
brothers, (of whom there were two, Eustace and Simon) whose son 
(or grandson) and successor was 

Thomas de BOLONIA, lord of Wydecombe and Ashe in the parish 
of Martock, whose name appears at the head of the preceding 
pedigree. He was a benefactor to the monks of Muchelney, and his 
charter was confirmed in 1240 by his son and successor Pharamus. 

Sir Pharamus de BOLONIA was lord of Wydecombe, Tintenhull and 
Ashe in Martock 1238, 1242, 1243. ^ n addition to confirming his 
father's charter to the monks of Muchelney, he was himself their 
benefactor in 1240. He appears as a knight in 1242-43. 

Sir Pharamus de BOLONIA alias de WYDECOMBE, son of Richard, and 
grandson of Pharamus, appears first as Pharamus de BOLONIA at 
Tintenhull in 1262, and in the same year as a knight he is witness to 
a charter of Robert de SANCTO CLARO to Montacute Abbey. As 
Pharamus de WYDECOMBE he occurs at Tintenhull in 1263, and in 
the following year he is in dispute with Robert son of Walter con- 
cerning land in Wydecombe. As Sir Pharamus de WYDECOMBE he 
was one of the knights elected on a jury to enquire concerning the 
Liberty of the Island of Muchelney in 1280, in which year he is on 
the Assize Roll as Pharamus de BOLONIA. He occurs again in 1283, 
1284 and 1285 as Pharamus de WYDECOMBE. Robert de WYDECOMBE, 
who held land in Wydecombe in 1263-4, was doubtless a brother of 
his. In 1284 his name follows immediately after that of Pharamus as 
a witness to an inquest taken at Martock. 

[In Harleian MS. 1451, fo. 172, Pharamus de WYDECOMBE, in the 
parish of Martock, stands first of six generations, viz : Pharamus, 
Richard, William, John, Walter, Walter.] 

Sir Richard de BOLONIA alias de WYDECOMBE, son of Sir Pharamus, 


as Richard de BOLONIA held "Aysse and Wytecumbe " of William 
de FIENNES, his kinsman (great-grandson of Ingelram de FIENNES and 
Sybil his wife, daughter and heir of Pharamus de BOLONIA, the original 
grantee of Martock, temp. Henry II) in 1286. In 1293-4 he is in 
dispute with his brother Pharamus, son of Pharamus de WYDECOMBE, 
over land in Wydecombe and Asshe-juxta-Mertok. 

John de WYDECOMBE, son of William and grandson of Sir Richard, 
was perhaps the latter's successor. He appears on the Subsidy Roll 
for the Hundred of Martock as early as 1303, and in 1314 is witness 
to a grant of John de MOREBATHE juxta Brideport of lands at " la 
Feune-juxta-Mertoke. " In 1322 John de WYDKCOM BE was enfeoffed 
of the manor of Hardington in Somerset. 

Walter de WYDECOMBE (WIDCOMBE, WHITECOMBE, etc.) son of 
John, was lord of Wydecombe in 1325, in which year John SAY of 
Martock is appointed to arrest him. Four years later he receives 
protection with the same John SAY for going beyond the sea on the 
King's service, for which in the same year he receives exemption for 
life from being put on assizes, juries, or recognisances, and from 
appointments as mayor, sheriff, coroner or other minister of the Crown 
against his will. In 1330 we again find him associated with John SAY 
of Martock and also with William de MONTE ACUTO, Earl of Salis- 
bury, under whom in 1338 he is appointed constable of Corfe Castle, 
Dorset, an office which he still holds in 1340. He was dead by 1347 
and had left Elena his widow guardian to his son and heir Walter, 
then under age. 

Walter's appearance in Dorset is interesting and is followed in 1342 
by a complaint of trespass against John de WYDECOMBE, Stephen de 
WYDECOMBE and others in Fordington. In 1244 Philip de WYDI- 
COMBE occurs on a Dorset Roll. In 1332 William de WIDCOMBE was 
chaplain of Colbere, co. Dorset, and in 1408 Edward de WHITECOMBE 
appears as a juror in an inquest taken at Erode Wyndesore ; but 
beyond these exceptions no trace of the name is seen in Dorset until 
the latter part of the 1 5th century, when a well-defined branch of the 
family, bearing the WHITCOMBE arms, appropriately differenced, 
appears in Sherborne and afterwards in Lillington in that county, 
thriving until the middle of the i8th century. From them the 
WHITCOMBS of America (descendants of John WHETCOMBE of Dor- 
chester, Scituate and Lancaster, Massachusetts, 1588-1662) are 
derived ; but the origin and ultimate end of this family in England I 
have been unable to determine, though I suspect it to be derived from 
the original Somerset stock. 

Walter de WYPECOMBE, son and heir of Walter, was under age in 
1347. In 1353, however, he is witness to a deed of William de 
MOUNTAGUE, Earl of Salisbury, for the manor of Corry Ryvel in 


Somerset ; and in 1360 and 1363 we meet him associated with John 

Until recent times the family has had representatives in the county of 
Somerset, none of whom however seem to have been of much account. 
Walter was succeeded by a son John, who may have been that John 
de WYDECOMBE who was in 1377 benefactor to the church of Frome. 
But the last clearly settled in Martock was John WITDECOMBE, who 
by will 1527 (P.C.C. 23 " PORCH ", 3 Sept., 19 Hen. VIII.) bequeaths 
his lands in Witdecombe, Bowrehenton, Cote, Lymborough in the 
parish of Martock, Kingsbury, Drayton, Fivehead, Crewkerne, 
Greinton, Edington, Langporteston, Langton Weston, Southwick and 
Fromselwood, to his wife Alice for life, with remainder to his brother 
William and his heirs. He was son of John and Joane WITDECOMBE. 

In 1461 "John WYDECOMBE the younger, late of Mertok, co. 
Somerset, yoman " appears in the Patent Rolls. He was probably 
grandfather of John of Martock last considered (i.e. the testator of 
1527) and father of the latter's father John. His description as John 
the younger forces the conclusion that his father was also John, and 
was probably identical with that John who in 1431-2 was a deforciant 
in a suit concerning lands in Chinnock (four miles S.E. of Martock), 
Hewenbeare and Hardington in Somerset, and was undoubtedly heir 
in the second or third generation to Walter de WYDECOMBE the 
younger, just discussed. 

In 1331 Philip de WHITECOUMBE occurs in a suit against John de 
COSTON, parson of Bandrip, and in 1354 William de WYDECOMBE is 
witness to a charter of Henry de LACY concerning lands in Donneheved, 
co. Somerset. The names of Simon WYDECOMBE and Isabella his 
wife appear in 1388-9 in connection with the manor of Sandford- 
Oreskoys, Somerset. In 1412 Richard WYDECOMBE of Bath was 
elected on a jury to decide the position of the city pillory ; he was 
Member of Parliament for Bath in 1389, 1414, 1420, 1424 and 1428. 
Thomas WYDECOMBE was juror to an inquest in Martock in 1431, and 
in the Patent Rolls of Edward IV. we read of " Wydecombe, co. 
Somerset, with other lands lately held by Thomas WYDECOMBE and 
Elena his wife and Thomas his son, 1463. " 

The Arms borne by the family of WYDECOMBE of Wydecombe in 
Martock since the days of Henry III. have been : Paly of six, or and 
sable, three eagles displayed counterchanged. 

Robert WYDECOMBE (WIDCOMBE, WHITCOMBE, etc.) of Shrewsbury 
was a Somerset man, and his son Thomas, who married Edith heiress 
of MALVEYSIN of Malveysin Berwick, co. Salop, is constantly described 
as of Wydecombe, co. Somerset. He and his descendants have 
always borne and still bear the undifferenced arms of the early WYDE- 
COMBES of Wydecombe in Martock ; they were proved at the Visitation 


of Salop in 1623 and again by Richard WHITCOMBE, barrister-at-law, 
in 1 8 1 8. Robert was a man of some account in Shrewsbury. He was 
freeman of the town and five times its bailiff between 1420 and 1441 ; 
while he was its representative in Parliament in 1420, 1421, and 1433. 
By his wife, Benedicta, he left issue two sons : Robert of Shrewsbury, 
who left an only daughter Jone, wife of Thomas LLOYD of Shrewsbury, 
and Thomas aforesaid, ancestor of the Shropshire WHITCOMBES, from 
whom descended the WHITCOMBES of Worcestershire (i8th century), 
London (ijth century), and perhaps of Kent (iyth century). 

The ancestry of Robert is a matter of some doubt, and strictly it is 
not possible with the evidence as yet at hand to place him. Joseph 
MORRIS, the Shropshire genealogist, made him son of John de 
WYDECOMBE of Wydecombe (in Martock), and there is much in support 
of his assertion. 

In the 1 6th century there was a well-established branch in Devon, 
bearing the usual arms, slightly differenced, whence sprung the 
WHITCOMBES (WHETCOMBE, etc.) of Essex, who flourished in that 
county at least till 1845. ^ n tne middle of the 1 8th century a family 
of WHITCOMBE appeared in the county of Gloucester, representatives 
of which still survive. 

I should much appreciate any information or evidence leading to 
the connection of the above names and facts, the extension of the 
Somerset pedigree, establishment of the origin of the Devon, Dorset, 
Kent, Gloucester or American branches, or any particulars and data of 
the family in all its branches. Especially I am anxious to obtain 
evidence as to the ancestry and connections of Robert WYDECOMBE 
(WHITCOMBE) of Shrewsbury (1420-1445), and his son Thomas, of 
Malveysin-Berwick, co. Salop.

Qtofc* an* (gtaritw*. 

more than fifty years ago, in 1858, as the result, probably, of the appearance of 
David Copperfield, business connected with the proving and keeping of wills was 
transferred from Doctors' Commons to Somerset House. Great accumulations 
of ancient records and papers were transferred from the old, semi-ecclesiastical, 
proctors, who made so good a thing of it, to the modern permanent Civil service, 
some of the records dating back as early as 1258 ; and a separate department 
was created (at the public expense) to arrange, catalogue, index, and produce 
them when needed. There have been some excellent officials in that depart- 
ment and some excellent work has been done, but some of the old slackness, 
inherited no doubt from Doctors' Commons, has survived until the present day. 
The following are some of the conditions there as regards ancient records more 
than a hundred years old ; and these, being public records, as no one will dispute, 
should be undoubtedly as freely accessible as ancient records can be made for 
the purposes of modern historical research. 

The Literary Enquiry Department is closed for six weeks, (one eighth part 
of the year) every Summer, at a season when it is particularly convenient for 
many residents in the country to come up to town to do a little research work; 
and for a further six weeks the Department is open only from 1 1 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

There are prohibitive fees to be paid for the privilege of seeing original 

Non-testamentary records, dating from 1258, are not allowed to be seen 
under any circumstances ; which raises the question, For what purpose (at the 
public expense) are they preserved at all ? 

The accommodation is so limited during the short hours the Department is 
open that it is a common thing for applicants to be refused a seat. 

The record-keepers are so little acquainted with the elements of the business 
of record-keeping that no Schedules or Class Lists of what Bundles, books, ^c., 
exist are to be seen there on the shelves ; and, although certain Indexes have 
been printed, copies are not available. 

Priceless documents and papers remain entirely unsorted, bundled up, or 
indexed in any way ; can never be consulted, and are in imminent danger of 
destruction are, in fact, being destroyed, by dirt and neglect. 

What is the remedy ? 

A new President of the Probate Division has lately been appointed, and to 
him a humble Petition, signed by sixty readers and others of some eminence in 
the literary world, has been presented. The promoters of this Petition are 
resolved, with the aid of those who are interested at all in ancient records (kept 
at the public expense), to take every constitutional means to have them made 
freely accessible all the year round, during ordinary office hours, to those who 
can make use of them to have them brought, in short, under precisely similar 
regulations as obtain in regard to ancient records now at the Public Record 

If Socialism means finding " soft " places for some of the community, with 
hours ii to 3, and an interval for luncheon, (when the office is open), and full 



pay when it is not, at the expense of the rest, I have no hesitation in saying 
that the Department of Ancient Records in the Principal Probate Registry at 
Somerset House forms the strongest object-lesson against Socialism with which 
I have yet met. I do not think this state of things would have continued had 
these records remained in the hands of the Church. The Court Rolls of the 
Ecclesiastical Commissioners, for example, have been thrown open freely, as they 
should be, to anyone who can make use of them. G. S. 

25685, contained the following draft letter and pedigree, now in my possession 
by the courtesy of the Rev d . H.R. HUBAND. The paper is in a rather 
dilapidated condition and the writing somewhat hard to decipher, so that it will 
be as well to preserve in print the information it contains. The table is slightly 
re-arranged in conformity with the generally-accepted arrangement of pedigree 
matter. Additions and doubtful readings are in brackets : 

"T.P. 14 Octo r . 1808. Dear OAKLEY. [In reference to] the 6 difP 
Papers deliv d by you to me some few days ago relative to a supposed Right in 
M rs B. OAKLEY'S Fam y to several freeh d Estes in Petticoat Lane, St. Leonard 
[Shoreditch] &? Enfield the foll g Observ'ons & Quest ns occur to me for attent n . 

Under what Instrum* did Mr John JAMES, who appears to be Mrs BUT- 
CHER'S G l GrandP &f who is Conjectured to have cut off the Entail become 
so entitled to this Property ? Or what reason is there to imagine that he was 
only Tenant in tail ; for he states himself in his will to have a disposable interest 
w ch wo d not be the case if he had not the Fee. And how was it known to be 
an Entail ? N.B. If there was an Entail it must have been either barred by a 
Fine or a Recov y ; &f which of those Acts was the most proper the Writ 8 creat g 
the Est[at]e tail will be necess y to shew. A search made unsuccessf 7 for a Fine 
in the years 1725, 1726, 1727 &f 1728 was not suff*. ; for he not dying until 
1736 there were sev 1 . other years in which a search might have been effected 
with great Propriety, both for a Fine & a Recov 7 . Did Mrs Mary HIGGINS the 
Mo r of Mr J. JAMES, execute any appo* under his will in favour of Creditors 
or o'rwise or was his pers[onal] Est[at]e adequate to the disch[arg]e of his 
Debts? When did Mrs HIGGINS die? N.B. She was dead in Dec r 1739. 
What is become of Mr. Sam 1 JAMES, his Bro'r, and did he do any Act to bar 
his Entail ? The like question arises as to Mr J. FOULDS, the Uncle ? How 
has Mr. ROSSETER, whom you ment d to me, come into the Fam y or acquired 
an Int* ? Does not the Est[at]e tail in quest 11 arise under Mr John JAMES' 
will ? If so, all enquiry previous to that Instrum 1 will be useless. 

Has any profess 1 gent n been hitherto concerned in instituting enquiries, and, 
if so, who was he, and where is his Bill ? This circumstance is very material. 
N.B. There is a pencil observ n in the margin of fo. 4 of the Office copy of 
Mrs J. JAMES will intimat g that she did not avail herself of [appointing?] the 
Est[at]e : but on what Foundation & by whom was that observ n made? 
Unless Mesd mes KINMAN, W. JONES & F. CROWDER are dead with 1 leav g any 
descend* 8 a moiety only of these freeh d Est[at]es can be vested in M rs BUTCHER. 
And the most essential Points apparently to be established are that M re HIGGINS 
did not exec 6 any appo*., that M r Samuel JAMES had not any Issue ; or, if he 
had, that it is extinct & that no Act was done to destroy that Entail, and that 



the Fam y of John FOULDS is also determined in like manner. I shall be happy 
in congratulating you that there is a Prospect of something & with due infor- 
mation will endeavour to establish it. Yours very truly, R.G.T. Benj n

which has been so dispersed. This time there were upwards of two hundred 
volumes on vellum, besides extensive collections of State Papers, original corres-

was represented by collections of original deeds, court rolls, &fc. The lots 
numbered over nine hundred and the most interesting Catalogue ran to 151 

C. Davies SHERBORN we are indebted for the MS. slips of the Catalogue of the 
WINCKLEY Papers, now deposited in the Town Clerk's Office, Preston, Lan-

and relate principally to Preston and the neighbourhood. The papers passed 


from the WINCKLEY family to Sir John SHELLEY and Count MUENSTER ; and 
from him to Mr. SHERBORN, by whom they were handed on to the custody of 
the County Borough of Preston, on the understanding that the documents 
should be always freely accessible to literary enquirers. Typewritten copies

PARISH REGISTERS. The Parish Register, by William BRADBROOK, 
M.R.C.S., The Genealogist's Pocket Library, vol. VII. (Walton-on-Thames, 
C.A. BERNAU 1910, i6mo. 2s. 6d.) 

It is probable that a juster and more accurate view of English life and 
character could be obtained from a study of this little book than from six-months 
diligent perusal of the contemporary daily press. Beginning with Sir Thomas 
CROMWELL'S injunction of 1535, that registers of baptisms, marriages and burials 
should be systematically kept, the author gives a table of the principal enactments 
affecting registers of this kind down to the time of general Civil registration in 
1837. The one purpose which the legislature never once contemplated, and 
does not realize to this day, is that Parish Registers and other records of birth, 
marriage and death are valuable as records, altogether apart from pecuniary 
claims. It might easily be urged that the withholding from inspection of any 
public record, except upon payment of fees, amounts to a denial of justice. 

We are charmed with the numerous, hitherto unpublished, examples given of 
many entries with the author's observations, drawn from the experience of 
many years. " Quis homo hie est ? Quo patre natus ? " is the quotation at the 
head of one of the chapters. "... why this is flat knavery to take upon him 
another man's name. " Few of the half-world, one imagines, know that to 
assume a " professional " name is a survival of the old Roman law, which 
compelled women of loose character to take a name not their own, so that 
infamy might not be brought upon an honourable one. The statistics and 
historical illustrations are not the least valuable part of the book. This is the 
direct writing of experience, and throughout the book one gets that sustained 

Stony Stratford is in the author's own particular country. An entry in the 
Register there records, very appropriately, 

" 1665. Old Knockstone, the pavier, bur., Aug. I2th. " 

It was in the hotel-book there that the traveller wrote, " They may well call 
this place Stony Stratford, for I have been most terribly bitten by fleas. " 

References to English Surnames, 1601, by F.K. and S. HITCHING. (Walton 
on Thames, Chas. A. BERNAU, 1910. Small quarto, los. 6d.) This work is 
part of a scheme designed to provide an Index for certain years to all the sur- 
names in the Parish Registers of England. It takes the year 1601, and those 
Registers which happen to be printed, and shews in what Register for that 


particular year certain surnames occur. There are nearly twenty-thousand 
references. This is excellent spade-work and we hope the compilers will be 
encouraged to further effort. We do not, however, quite approve of the old 
capital " F " being treated as if it were double " f, " nor of the old " U " 
being treated as " V " when it happened to be written in that form. To 
enter a name like " UNWIN " under " V, " when a separate place is set apart 
for " U " surnames, is absurd. 

A series of such indexes would go far towards fixing the local habitation of 
families during the period covered by them. To determine this is, of course, 
the first step towards the discovery of family history. 

To think of the town of Olney is to think of COWPER, of the bridge men- 
tioned in " The Task, " and of the tame hares. Since COWPER'S time the thing 
of most permanent importance which has happened in connection with the 
town is the printing of the Parish Registers of Olney, 1665-1812. The fourth 
and fifth parts, with the Index, are now issued by the Bucks Parish Register 
Society. Pure chance saved the Registers from destruction by fire in 1786 ;

Olneyites themselves not one in fifty knows how much he owes to the producers 
of this excellent work. This Society (Hon. Sec., W. BRADBROOK, M.R.C.S.,

The Legitimist Kalendar for 1910. (Forget-me-not Royalist Club, 32, Elgin 
Crescent, Bayswater, London, W. 8 V0 . IDS.) There is much matter of histor- 
ical and biographical value in this book, in addition to the genealogical tables 
of royal personages, and there is a fairly full, but not exhaustive, Index. We 
dare not venture on any criticism of the ostensible object of the Kalendar, for 
fear of being misunderstood, beyond saying that if Legitimist claims seem logical, 
the weakness of logicians lies in this, that being but human, they are apt to 
overlook some important element or other which to the argument is vital. 

Comprehensive Pedigree, No. 3. The PISTON Family of the Midland 
Counties . . . 1600-1910, by Edward Mil ward Seede PARKER. (Weston-super- 
Mare, 1910, Folio, ypp.) The earlier parts of this scheme were noticed in 
The Pedigree Register, I, 237, 366. In this part descents of MILWARD and 
PARKER of Keynsham, Somerset, are given in careful and most accurate detail. 
It is interesting to note that the Rev d . Benjamin MILWARD (1732-1785), a 
fully-ordained clergyman, was appointed in 1773, by the lord of the manor of 
West Cranmore, Somerset, as his gamekeeper ; holding at the same time the 
office of Surrogate for granting marriage-licences. 

Catalogue of Booh and Tracts on Genealogy and Heraldry in the Central Tublic

quarto, pp. 68.) While welcoming any catalogue of genealogical works we 
cannot extend our congratulations in this case to printing, paper, or binding. 
Nor can we recommend the Index. If, for example, we wish to discover at 
once whether anything is in the Library of genealogical fact concerning inhab- 
itants of Warkworth, or of merry Carlisle, or of fifty other places named in the 
body of the work, the Index is useless. The Catalogue is a classified catalogue 
and the Index is a classified index. There is a good list of printed Rolls of 
Arms, and we note with satisfaction that a collection of deeds relating to North- 
umberland and Durham will be dealt with in a separate Calendar.

That finished, we may presume that John BENNETT'S whole duty 
of man was laid down for practice. Could the writer have seen ahead 
in the far future for clairvoyance was fashionable in those days too(!) 
that antiquary and bookhunter of the nineteenth century prowling 
about old Holywell Street, (still in being though threatened daily with 
the housebreaker), said bibliophile rescuing Bishop HALL'S Contentation 
with these pious lines from the " sixpenny box " of varia, and herein 
displaying for all to see, he might have marvelled that time and posterity 
had taken their revenge by way of The Pedigree Register, on this effort 
that for so long had blushed in the dark unseen. Allowing for seven- 
teenth-century pronunciation, BENNETT'S prosody is not far out, and 
it is plain that John had a dialect of his own ; an accent too, say 
from north of the Thames. We leave the puzzle to the " E.D.D. " 
and its learned Grammar. But, one may ask, why, with such a 
common English surname, did he not give us a little genealogy, as 
" a gift from my aunt Priscilla ", or other amiable pedigree lore ? 
What possibilities might that have opened up well, at all events, 
outside of BENNETT and.... SMITH? For such we should have been 
grateful. As it is, J.B.'s lines as evidence are not even a small mercy. 
All the same, at this distance of 200 years and odd, we are beholden 
to him for the quaint scrawl. Nay, before leaving John BENNETT and 
Contentation^ we must own to speaking in our opening lines the true 
word that is spoken in jest partly at all events for Joseph, Bishop 
of Norwich, was surely a tolerably good specimen of tireless patience 
and virile Christianity.* 

There is to me something intimate, personal, and interesting in 
these book superscriptions, though but simple autographs, and their 
material for pedigrees of the slightest. But the paradox may be 

* See Lord LYTTON'S apt use of the Bishop's characteristics in The Caxtons. LYTTON'S 
references are to HALL'S Meditations. 


risked, that even such may be of greater value than more direct tes- 
timony. They are circumstantial evidence, and perhaps not much of 
that; but there is the stimulus of the slight clue and what it is going 
to open up. In a genealogical search this is sometimes worth all. 
Keen students will appreciate the goad of the motive and the 
problem. It may be one of those little things, unimportant at first 
sight, and unnoticed except by individual collectors here and there, but 
for genealogical purposes an unworked mine. Of course data such 
as these are only one of other sources of information, more or less 
neglected, I think, and it depends on the character of the particular 
search how far such minor evidence may come into use. 

Diaries, though their much fuller detail will not bear comparison with 
the meagreness of autographs, have of course a definite interest of 
their own, which they share with memoirs, letters, and other evidence 
that lies beyond the strait confines of formal biography. In the 
"all at sixpence" box again in old Booksellers' Row there turned up 
from under a heap of musty trifles POTTER'S Grecian Antiquities ye 
booklovers know it, with its leather backs, large print and elaborate 
copper-plates. Mine was one of the usual eighteenth century editions, 
about 1747, I think, and not much to look at; but on closer inspection 
POTTER was seen to be a blind, serving here as custodian of untold 
and secret things. In days gone by he must have kept his discreet 
outside wedged in among the other books: heavy, no doubt, with 
consequential reserve; for here, in faded ink, written between the 
printed lines and running on to the margins, was revealed the diary 
of a well-known literary man of his day. The book belonged to 
Capell LOFFT the younger, and the journal dealt with the first three 
years of his married life. You will find all about Capell LOFFT, father 
and son, in the " D.N.B. "; short and adequate accounts and fairly 
prosaic not so my original writing, for here was life and gossip and 
intimacy. To profane eyes were spread open the thoughts and doings 
of those three years of work and recreation, anxiety and peace, self- 
questioning and hopeful schemes. Reticence is naturally not to be 
looked for in documents of this kind; but, apart from some personal 
self-revelation and conscious analysis, which are the characteristic, and 
indeed, the purpose most often of such daily memoranda, events 
play round the early years of Victoria's reign. To judge from the 
few remarks, grimly humorous in tone, the diarist permits himself to 
make on public events, LOFFT would now be reckoned a Socialist, if 
it is just to use so fluid a term to describe his contempt for Coronations 
and suchlike symbols of mediaeval tyranny, and his enthusiasm for 
those " agin the Government ". Labour was, in those days, begin- 
ning to stir to its grievances, and it is interesting to read these mental 
details of a barrister iand literary man, whose chief work, frequently 


referred to in the diary, is perhaps the long Chartist poem of Ernest. 
As we noted above, there is much self-questioning in the diary, 
and self-improvement and the formation or character are topics that 
are often discussed. The ethical outlook of the time came on the 
heels of more than one " revival"; a reaction from the deadness in 
a religious sense of the eighteenth century; the religious impetus 
of the greatest of these revivals bifurcating in Wesleyanism on the one 
hand, and somewhat later in the High Church movement at Oxford. 
And the literature of that time reflects, as it should, this rather self- 
conscious stirring to improvement quite good and healthy-minded 
in its way and its dissatisfaction with the grosser material age that had 
passed. For Sunday, BLAIR'S Sermons ; Hannah MORE was not long 
dead; for strict Evangelicals there were the Tales of MRS SHERWOOD; 
Sandford and Merton was still solemnly coming out at intervals (for 
people had not yet tumbled to the fun of its didactic platitudes) and 
Mr. PUNCH'S version of DAY'S masterpiece was not yet due. 

Minor books of the period these, but still significant of middle-class 
thought and taste. One could dwell longer on this interesting early 
Victorian period, and my readers of a bookish turn will doubtless 
recognise much of the moralising spirit in these and other literary 
signs of the times. The Oxford Movement was getting out of its 
swaddling-clothes, and the great new middle-class that rose to pros- 
perity after the repeal of the Corn Laws was keen for Evangelicism 
and missionary enterprise, philanthropy and the abolition of slavery, 
on the one hand, and on the other a domestic one was imposing on 
the age its ideal, a new conception of Puritanism, a code of formality, 
propriety and Sabbatarian restriction, now in 1910 fast melting away, 
but still a drear reality to most of us who can look back beyond a 
generation. Nor was it without its honest, sane, good points, subjec- 
tive in a sense, as carrying on a good and older Puritan tradition, but 
with a more recent memory of a world-loving aristocracy that was 
thought of as redolent of the gaming, the late hours and the general 
naughtiness and depravity of the eighteenth century ; for had not 
" our fathers told us " ? (and the relentless genius of HOGARTH has per- 
petuated for us of a later day the life of those times for high and 
low alike) a tradition of Puritan grandfathers engaged in honest 
trade, serving the wants of bewigged and bepatched lords and ladies 
in Sedan chairs making their way to the front-seats of the wicked 
playhouses, where WYCHERLEY and CONGREVE still held the boards, 
and the worldly wave of the later Stuart days had not yet spent its 
force. But the graceful outside, the dress, the manners and sen- 
timent of eighteenth-century life were equally shared in their degree 
by lord and lady with Puritan grandfather, and no ROUSSEAU had 
yet arrived to break the spell of their pre-revolution unconsciousness. 


That is, such traces of this as had survived the coming of the fig-leaf 
here and on the Continent after the breakdown of Holy Church 
under the Tudors. * 

Ethically speaking, we may suppose that LOFFT was only partially 
a man of his day. The diary opens up a pleasing side of the radical 
barrister and literary man. Though he betrays attachment to no 
particular church, the sway of his sympathies is towards practical 
philanthropy. He glories in Art and more than once bemoans his 
negligence of Law for the fascination of the sale-room. This, with 
his politics, and literary tastes, strikes a different note from the drab 
formality of the pre-forties. The names of well-known people whom 
he met are mentioned in his story, though unfortunately but few 
details are given of them. There has been some digression here, 
and I feel that the excursion into i8th. century times is rather beyond 
the scope of this gossip, though as a background to the diary it may 
be accepted, and my readers may pardon this retrospect and that of 
LOFFT and his days, more especially as reserve is claimed as to the 
rest of LOFFT'S writing ; for the diary must remain a memory, though 
its times are on record in print and otherwise. A shelf among the 
unpublished treasures of the British Museum Library seemed to be 
the proper place for this manuscript ; but after reading those intimate 
and personal lines not once, but several times, I changed my intention 
as to the gift. Page by page the sacred record of those three years 
was given to the flames ; his affections, frailties, criticisms, daily doings 
and meditations on all, scattered in thin air. He would have had it 
so, I think. ** 

To return to our fly-leaves and autographs. Of some literary 
interest is the inscription in a book belonging to a friend of mine. 
La Beatrice di Dante Ragionamenti Critici di Gabriele Rossetti, Londra, 
1 842, is a small book in paper-covers. Outside is written " G. P. 
BOYCE." On the fly leaf: " Al suo chiararrisimo suocero Gaetano Polidori 
nelle dottrine dantesche estesamente e profondamente versato in segno di 
sincero respetto fautore : il 2 di ottobre. " The Italian seems easy 

* I would here guard against the accusation of partisanship ; my allusion is to the morbid 
side of Puritanism, parent of that legion brood of affectations which was the sport of 
Hudibras. The point is a psychological one, and as such a problem for the philosopher 
and historian, who would, no doubt, weigh with nicety the effect of the clash of the new 
Protestant ethos with the traditional view of things and its instinctive repugnance as a 
reforming influence to the paganism of the Renaissance. Well-informed Roman Catholics, 
however, confess to Puritan influence in their church ; so that, whatever the origin, the 
strict Puritan attitude has affected the older church, as well as the Protestant sects. I speak 
under correction, but ' mauvaise honte ' is, I think, a phrase of comparatively modern invention. 
* Since writing these lines, I have come across the sentiments of an earlier diarist much 
to the point. The will (dated 1677), of William WHITE of Pusey, Berks., clerk, (P. C. C. 
80 Reeve), asks his executors " to burne and abolish all my Diaries from the year 1628 " 
" If nowe any of these things have escaped the fire I desire them forthwith to turne their Eies 
from them, and forthwith to burne them. " 


enough to translate, even by one unacquainted with the language, 
as I am. An obliging former owner (the bookseller, perhaps), has 
written on a slip of paper : " Presentation Copy Inscr n from 
Author to his Father-in-law Polidori. The name G. P. BOYCE (Lands- 
cape-painter) is B's handwriting, [and it] might at some time have 
been given to B. by Dante R , or perhaps bought by B. secondhand." 
Here then is art and literature as well as genealogy. 

A trifling record in my scrap-book was cut from the front-leaf of a 
copy ofCEuvres spirituelles de M. L'AbbeB** (LAme Interieure) 1779, 
and as we look on the formal writing of " Thomas WELD his book 
May 26th. 1781 ", there is a hint of Douay, perhaps, and the Seminary 
life of the Catholics of those days. (I was going to say, of French 
Emigre priests, but they came later) and a memory of the small body 
of English Catholics, then in the deeps of their humiliation before 
the Emancipation Acts. For is not this the father of the Cardinal ? 
Perhaps some reader on this slight evidence will to my certain 
gratitude clinch the matter. Or, we shall be told there is much ado 
here over a bare name. Maybe, but as remarked before, it is here 
that the interest comes in conjecture is proper and may lead on to more. 
Here at any rate the atmosphere created is a true one. The clues 
therefrom are not so evident, but none the less, taken with other 
facts, may establish a link, or fill in a vital blank. 

We have questioned the silent handwriting of the past, and naught 
but wraiths may have come to satisfy our want for definiteness, colour, 
or links in the chain. Well, the hunt, and the find a casual one 
perhaps, and the putting of two and two together, with our degree of 
knowledge of those bygone years, were worth much in themselves, and 
have not family details been rescued from such faint intimations of 
personality ? Faithfully followed-up there is at least the chance, and 
one would like extremely to hear of some instance in point. Though 
no direct ancestral information emerges from the quest, there is biogra- 
phy even in the passage of a book from owner to owner. Many years 
ago there came into my possession a leather-backed volume a heavy 
consequential tome, aimed, if I remember, at the Roman Catholics. 
That, however, need not detain us ; but the names on the first fly-leaf 
were worth attention. No genealogy. No details to speak of. 
Still we submit there is interest in the signatures of the successive 
owners of Defensio Ecclesi<e Anglicans . . . . D. Rich. Crakanthorp, 

S. T. D Editum, Lond. 1625. " H. W T . WORMINGTON " 

appears to be the earlier name, though the double initials would 
suggest otherwise. The other signature is of one " Joh. BURYS ", 
who adds " Jehova portio mea. " There is not much to go upon 
here, but more ado has been made over a scrap of SHAKESPEARE'S. 
How, too, if some great-great grandson of either of the writers should 


recognise here, or by other evidence, that an ancestor's autograph is 
here visible ; that he was a churchman and keen in his Anglicanism, 
and that WORMINGTON at least had the daintiest of handwritings ? 
Though the detail comes before the signatures, we have " Bought at 
an Auction at the Anne and Grecian Coffee House ffeb. 29, 1727-8, 
Price Sixpence ". Here now is a mine of information for the intel- 
ligent reader with a taste for topography and comparative economics 
to explore for himself ! To what base uses had Defensio been coming 
in these 100 years. At all events second-hand theology in those days 
seems to have been as lightly held as now : though CRAKANTHORP'S 
controversial Latin was presumably a trial. And lastly, is John BURYS 
the John BURY of the " D.N.B. ", who died in 1667 ? 

PORNY'S Heraldry [? 1717] with " John CLARK'S Book 1814 " is 
delightfully commonplace. Still there is hope for a descendant, 
though " CLARK " is not very instructive, and in the circumstances, 
his list of washing, or at all events, account of his wardrobe, written 
at the end of the volume is shameless levity. Speaking of this 
name reminds me of one " Fredk Arnaud CLARK, Leghorn, 2oth. 
Augt. 1814", whom I am anxious to know something about. He 
appears on the fly-leaf of loose covers to an old French prayer-book 
(Anglican liturgy), front page gone, and the cover itself is stamped 
Ciceronis Orationum I. The book is an heir-loom of mine, and any 
information on F. A. CLARK would be much appreciated. 

A fitting wind-up to this gossip should be mention of some signa- 
tures in an old Book of Common Prayer and Bible (bound together), and 
dated 1708-9, which I was permitted by the courtesy of the owner 
to copy some years ago. The autographs are in different hands and 
" should this meet the eye ", &c.. of any one interested, he may be 
able to piece the details together, one need scarcely add, to the great 
satisfaction of the writer of these notes. The earliest names are 
" Jos. TILLY and Mary TILLY " written one above the other, and 
presumably husband and wife. Date uncertain, but possibly early 
1 8th. century. Then a jump into about the middle of the I9th. cen- 
tury, when " W. WARD, M. D. " (about 1850 ?) records his owner- 
ship. The signature of " R. MATTHEWS " follows uncertain date, 
but quite modern, and lastly in a very neat and small handwriting, 
" George Shingleton MATTHEWS ; Campden, Dec r 22. 1850". The 
book belonged to a gentleman of the name of NOEL who had it from 
his grandfather. It is probably only a coincidence that NOEL is also 
the family name of the Earl of Gainsborough, and that the last-named 
signature is dated from Campden, which is of course the seat of the 
Marquess of Camden's (NOEL) family.

I have in my pedigree a statement for which no documentary evi- 
dence can be shown. As one is apt to get prejudiced in favour of one's 
own case I ask my brother-genealogists to sit in judgment on the doubt- 
ful point and decide if I have proof enough to establish the weak link. 

The point in dispute is this. Can I show that my great-grand- 
father Richard FOTHERGILL of Nottingham was son of Henry FOTHER- 
GILL of Ravenstonedale ? 

Richard FOTHERGILL is said by his monumental inscription in Old 
Radford Churchyard, Nottingham, to have been born 23rd September 
1763, and to have died 13 October 1822. Search for his baptism has 
been made in Ravenstonedale, but no trace of it can be found. 

Henry FOTHERGILL married, at Kirkby Stephen, Elizabeth DENT 
25 April 1763 ; the issue of the marriage being (as I assume) the 
above Richard ; James, who married in 1796 Margaret THOMPSON ; 
Elizabeth, who married by license Anthony FAWCETT 3rd July 1804 
(witnesses, Richard HEWETSON and James FOTHERGILL) ; Mary, bapt. 
at Crossby Garrett 5th September 1770, marr., 30 May 1797, William 
SLEE of Long Martin, (witnesses, Dan. SIMPSON and Henry FOTHER- 
GILL); Isabella, born 1791, and died at her house in Arboretum Street, 
Nottingham; buried in the Church Cemetery 5 June 1869. 

The parentage and marriage of Henry, and the names and marriages 
of his children were told to me, before I had searched any registers, 
by Miss Lydia FOTHERGILL of Arboretum Street, who was daughter 
of James, a son of Richard, and who had lived with her great-aunt 
Isabella and her own aunt Elizabeth FOTHERGILL. 

My father, John Henry FOTHERGILL, who knew little about his 
family, always told me that some of his ancestors had lived in Cum- 
berland ; the same statement was made to me by Miss Lydia. This 
lady wrote to her sister Mrs MOORE in America, who replied that her 
great-grandfather Henry lived from time to time either at or near 
Appleby, and returned to Ravenstonedale when the children were 
young. The old aunt Isabella, when asked by Miss Lydia, always 
said she was born in Cumberland, and that she was a daughter of 
Henry FOTHERGILL of Ravenstonedale. A marriage visit of the 


descendants of Anthony FAWCETT and Elizabeth FOTHERGILL was paid 
to the old ladies at Arboretum Street. 

The Rev d . John FOTHERGILL, who was born in 1824, grandson of 
James, the brother of Richard of Nottingham, sometime in the sixties 
inserted a FOTHERGILL query in Notes and Queries. To this I replied 
in the eighties. He wrote me several letters and we afterwards formed 
a fast friendship. He visited my Father's house, who at once remem- 
bered Him. This Rev d . John FOTHERGILL, in one of his letters, says 
his grandfather James was brother of my great-grandfather Richard, 
who was son of Henry. He also spoke of Dr. John Milner FOTHER- 
GILL as belonging to our branch. John Milner FOTHERGILL was 
descended from an uncle of the Hen^y FOTHERGILL in question. The 
Rev d . John told me about a dispute over the estate of Dubbs in 
Ravenstonedale, which was devised by will of William, the nephew of 
Henry FOTHERGILL, (proved in the Peculiar Court of Ravenstonedale 
in 1793), to his uncle Richard DIXON, and not to his uncle Henry 
FOTHERGILL. Mr. HEWITSON of Ravenstonedale lent me some papers 
with the remark that after this length of time we could let bygones 
be bygones. One of the letters is as follows : 

" Mr.William FOTHERGILL at George COLDHAM'S Esq., Attorney- 
at-Law, Broad Street Buildings, London. Dubbs Oct. 13, 1791. 

Dear Brother 

I hope these few lines will find you well wich I am at present 
and I was married to David HEWETSON on 29 Sept. [at] Raven- 
stonedale Church and we went to Kirkby to dine, we was favoured 
with the company of Uncle Richard DIXON, Brother Ben, 
Hannery John, cousins Sarah HEWITSON and Molly BECK, uncle 
Hannery came to Dubbs night before I married and they are all 
well uncle Hannery and cousin Richard WHALEY dined with us 
at Kirby faire and they are all well. Uncle Hannery has behaved 
very rude to uncle Richard DIXON you must not mind what he 
says about us he will say anything to get Dubbs if he comes to 
Dubbs he will pay no rent you must not let him come whatever 
you do when he writes to you about coming to Dubbs do not 
write to him. Peggy SKARBROUGH is very poorley and not likely 
to live long wich is all at present, From your loving sister Mary 
The uncle Richard DIXON in a letter to William FOTHERGILL, of 


which I have a copy, advises him when he writes to his uncle Henry 
to tell him that " your sister has let the estate, " before his letter 
came to hand. The foregoing letter and extract show that some 
reliance can be placed on the Rev. John's tradition, as he had never 
seen these papers when he told me about the Dubbs estate. 

Miss Lydia FOTHERGILL in a letter to me states that Isabella always 
said that her brother Richard ought to have had Dubbs. 

Mrs. HEWITSON of Brunt Hill in Ravenstonedale told me that 
Richard of Nottingham was the eldest son of Henry FOTHERGILL. 
Mr. HEWITSON had heard of the marriage trip to Nottingham. 

To sum up, it was known to Isabella FOTHERGILL, who lived to 
1869, and handed down from her to Lydia, who told the writer that 
her father was Henry of Ravenstonedale, and that he had children as 
before stated, who married as above mentioned. This has been partly 
confirmed by the marriage registration of Elizabeth and Anthony 
FAWCETT, with Richard HEWITSON and [brother] James FOTHERGILL 
as witnesses, and by that of Mary and William SLEE, witnesses Dan 
SIMPSON and [father] Henry FOTHERGILL. 

The statements of the Rev. John FOTHERGILL, who had lived and 
conversed with his old relations and other inhabitants of Ravenstone- 
dale, that his grandfather James was a brother of Richard of Notting- 
ham, and that Henry of Ravenstonedale was the father of both of 
them, and his knowledge of the dispute over Dubbs, are also testimony. 
Compare also the visit of the descendants of Anthony FAWCETT and 
the baptismal entry of Mary, daughter of Henry and Elizabeth 

From this evidence I think it can be deduced safely that Richard 
of Nottingham was the son of Henry of Ravenstonedale ; because he 
was stated to be so by his sister Isabella, confirmed by the Rev. John 
FOFHERGILL, who was well-versed in the family history. Here is an 
example of the knowledge of family connexions being within an ace of 
becoming lost. What might be done to fix the point by record- 
evidence ? I should be inclined to try in the order named, Census 
Returns of 1861, Plea Rolls for address of Henry any time between 
1763 and 1792, as a guide to the place of baptism of his children, and 
records of apprenticeship at Hull for Richard's parentage, on the 
chance that he might have been apprenticed in that town. 





An order signed by Oliver CROMWELL directs payment " unto 
Captain George DRURY of my Regiment of foote upon account the 
sume of four hundred and fifty pounds for the present supply of my 
s d Regmt." dated 29 January 1649, to Mr. James STANDISH. Receipt 
signed " George DRURY," dated 29th January 1649. No place 
named, but as King CHARLES was executed on the 3Oth, I presume 
all three named were in London on the 29th. Can anyone give 
any further information of this George DRURY ? 

In the Calendar of State Papers under date 1662, 1 5 Dec., are "Docu- 
ments relating to Adventurers and Soldiers pretending to the estate of 
the Marquess of ANTRIM, Alexander Mac DONNELL and Sir James 
Mac DONNELL in Antrim and Coleraine." One runs as follows : (i)

I would be glad of any further information about this George DRURY 
or even of the native place of Captain Wingfield CLAYPOOLE.

Miss Christine RAINY (sister of Principal RAINY) to Raymond 


" Edinburgh, 26 Dec. 1893. 
Dear Mr. Berthon, 

I rather think Sir John MUNRO'S soubriquet had some reference to 
his rotundity of figure, though he was a staunch Presbyterian and 
suffered both fines and imprisonment on account of his opinions. 
The FOWLIS family were Protestants and Presbyterians from the 
Reformation downwards. One of them was a member of the Parlia- 
ment that adopted KNOX'S " Confession of Faith " in 1 560, and several 
of them were like Sir John, very corpulent ; Sir Robert, who fell at 
Falkirk in 1746, was so. I have heard that they hailed from Ireland 
in the days of MALCOLM II, of Scotland, and came over to help him 
against the Danes. If you could make a pilgrimage to Creich, Dr. 
AIRD could tell you plenty of old stories. I am afraid most of them 
will die with him. I don't know anything about " Big William of 
the Beans, " but my father used to tell us about Mr. Gilbert ROBERT- 
SON, Minister of Kincardine, who was his grandfather and your great- 
great-great-grandfather. He was a very pious man and favoured the 
Hanoverian Government, as he feared that Popery would come in 
with the Pretender. He was supposed to be so obnoxious to the 
Jacobites that his elders persuaded him to wear a pistol for self-defence, 
and one or two of them used to go with him as a bodyguard 
when he travelled from place to place. He used to preach with the 
pistol in his belt, but he never made use of it except to light his 

The church of Scotland was in rather a bad state in his time ; the 
so called " Moderates " having got the ascendency, they used to force 
unwelcome Ministers on reclaiming congregations, and for refusing to 
take part in one of these forced settlements Mr. Gilbert had to 
appear before the General Assembly and receive a rebuke. He rode 
up to Edinburgh on horseback, and his wife was so ill of consumption 
when he left home that he marked out a grave for her, in case he 
might not get back in time to superintend her funeral. However, 
they did meet again in life but she died soon afterwards, and my 
grandmother, who was only entering her teens, took entire charge of 
the housekeeping thenceforward. She was a person of great energy 
and cheerfulness. In his later years, her father came over to live at 
Creich, an assistant and successor having been appointed to the parish 


of Kincardine. There was a room in the Manse of Creich where he 
had had a remarkable dream many years before, and he said then, 
that he would like to die in that room, where Heaven had seemed so 
near. He had his wish. The only other circumstance that occurs 
to me about him was that he had a favourite cat which followed him 
about like a dog and after his death it would not eat, but went and 
lay on his grave till it died. 

I always heard the Kiltearn family were remarkably handsome and 
amiable. My father had a special affection for his uncle's wife, Mrs. 
ROBERTSON of Kiltearn. Both she and her husband were people of 
good taste and kept their house and garden in great order. Margaret 
PARKER used to have letters written by " Aunt ROBERTSON " giving 
curious details of life in a manse in Ross-shire in her father's time. 
With best wishes of the season, Believe me 

Your affec te cousin

FORBES, who resided in Inverness. 

(2) Jane, married to Captain William DOUGLAS, Fyrish, in 1766 

who had a son Robert, who died in Jamaica about 1840. 

(3) Christian, married Rev d . Gilbert ROBERTSON, minister of Kin-

Rev d . D r . AIRD to R.T. BERTHON. 


" Free Manse, Creich, by Ardguy. 
22 Jan., 1894. 

During the latter part of the spring of 1746 a number of rebels 
encamped close to the Manse of Kincardine. Mr. ROBERTSON had to 
leave it, and the congregation had to leave the church for several 
Sabbaths. The land between Bonar Bridge and Ardguy, now turned 
into fine corn-fields, was then under broom, six feet high. The con- 
gregation met for five or six Sabbaths in the broom and Mr. ROBERTSON 
preached to them dressed in the Highland dress, kilt and hose, and 
looked remarkably well in it. But after the Battle of Culloden he 
returned to the Manse and the congregation to the church. " 

The same to the same. 

"3 January, 1894. 

I return Miss RAINY'S letter which interested me much. One of 
the traditions respecting her excellent great-grandfather Mr. Gilbert 
ROBERTSON I heard nearly fifty years ago from one of my elders, a 
little different but substantially the same. The Manses of Kincardine 
and of Creich are about two miles apart, the Sutherland Kyle or Firth 
intervening. In November 1758, when Mr. James SMITH Minister 
of Creich, died, Mr. Gilbert ROBERTSON, Kincardine, slept the night 
of Mr. SMITH'S funeral in the room in which Mr. SMITH died, in the 
Manse of Creich, and had a very extraordinary dream. He heard 
the most melodious music and his eyes were dazzled with the brightest 
light he ever beheld. He awoke and found it to have been a dream, 
but was much impressed, rose and prayed and asked if it were God's 
will that that was the room in which he would wish to die. 

In April 1771 Mr. RAINY was inducted minister of Creich ; in 
November 1772 he married Mr. Gilbert ROBERTSON'S daughter. 
Mr. ROBERTSON was a widower, and the Manse of Kincardine was 
rebuilt in 1773. He suffered much from stone, and although the 
manse was completed in November 1773, yet it was considered unwise 
that he should enter it at that season of the year, and therefore he 
resided with his daughter and son-in-law in the neighbouring manse 
of Creich, where he died in March 1774, in the identical room where 
he had the dream and prayed if it were the Lord's will that he should 
die there. There was a very protracted and severe frost, so much so 
that the water of the Kyle between Creich and Kincardine was frozen, 
as there is a good deal of fresh water flows into it from five pretty 
large salmon rivers : and his body was carried on men's shoulders on 


the ice from the manse of Creich to that of Kincardine, and buried 
next day in the MUNRO'S burying-ground in the churchyard of Kin- 
cardine. It was surrounded by a wall two centuries ago, but is now 
in a ruinous state. The MUNROS of Achany and Altas are buried 
there, and they descended from the Fowlis MUNROS. Mrs. RAINY 
was a very excellent amiable lady, possessed of much of the milk of 
human kindness. The reason why Sir John MUNRO, Fowlis, was 
called " the Mortar Piece " was because of his uncommon corpulence. 
When abroad at the head of his regiment, whenever the command 
was given to them to fire, they then lay flat on the soil so that the 
shot from the enemy passed over them and did no harm. But Sir 
John stood erect, as, if he lay flat, owing to his corpulence, it took 
five or six men to help him up again. The present Mr. George 
KENNEDY, Dornoch, who has resided in Edinburgh for the past thir- 
teen years, told me that the house in which Mrs. ROBERTSON'S, Kilt- 
earns, father and mother resided is alongside the railway now within 
less than a mile from Golspie on the Farm of Kirkton or Kilmailie. 
It is a slated cottage and I should think that they must be buried in 
the churchyard of Golspie, or it may be in the burying-ground on the 
farm of Kirkton, where the church and burying-ground originally 
were, and where some of the Earls of SUTHERLAND are buried, but 
which has not been used as a burying-ground for many years. 

I always heard my mother say that Dr. ROBERTSON was an uncom- 
monly handsome man and Mrs. ROBERTSON particularly good-looking, 
and both had a fine taste. The manse was close to the Cromarty 
Firth, the soil was beautifully laid out with shrubs and splendid 
flowers, and the garden stocked with apple and pear trees. The soil 
is particularly good and the walls of the manse were covered with 
splendid pear trees, which never failed in yielding a rich supply of 
savory fruit. " 

The same to the same. 

" 9 January, 1895. 

The Manse of Kiltearn is on the North side of the Cromarty Firth 
in a beautiful situation. The minister claimed the right of salmon- 
fishing there, which Sir Hugh MUNRO disputed. There was some 
lawsuit about it, or, at any rate, it was threatened in Dr. ROBERTSON'S 
time. I was told that Sir Hugh MUNRO said c it was too bad that 
Dr. ROBERTSON and he could not agree about it, as they were relations' 
but, said Sir Hugh, ' I am too proud and the Doctor is too positive.' " 




A In a grant of Arms to Roger DALE of Tixover, in a MS. in the 
British Museum, his grandfather is given as Robert DALE, and the 
MS. states his descent was proved from Sir Theodoric DALE (temp. 
Edward III), but the proofs are not given, nor is the place of resi- 
dence of Robert DALE, sen. 

B From certain cases in the Star Chamber it is obvious Robert DALE 
of Winkele and Hawkersley died about 1587 and his wife was living 
a widow in 1589. The Visitation of Cheshire, 1580 (Harl : Soc.) 
gives a pedigree of the LEIGHS of Baguleigh, but Katherine's name 
does not figure in it. The arms of this branch of LEIGH were 
" azure 2 bars argent over all a bend argent (or gules)" Baguley 
came into their possession by the marriage of Ellen, heir of Sir Wm. 
BAGULEY, with Sir John LEIGH of Bouthes. 

I have been unable to trace the date or place of death of Robert 
DALE of Winkele and Northants. There is no Will or Adm6n of 
him in Peterboro' Registry, Northants Wills, or in P.C.C., nor, as 
far as I am aware at Chester. The arms of BRASSEY of Terton were 
" Quarterly : Per f ess indented sable and argent y in the first quarter a 
mallard argent billed gules" 

D Robert DALE of Tixover and Newcastle-under-Lyme figures in many 
Chancery Cases, but I can find no particulars of any issue of his 
marriage. Neither have I succeeded in finding his Will. 

H No Will of Wm. DALE or Adm6n is in P.C.C. 

F At the Visitation of London (1613) and of Northants (1613) the 
arms of DALE of Rutland (Gules a swan argent) were erroneously 
confirmed to Wm. DALE, alderman and grocer of London, the crest 
being furthermore placed on a cap of maintenance. In 1614 there 
is an Adm6n of a Wm. DALE of Westminster to his widow Elizabeth. 

Q- Richard DALE survived his father and mother, but evidently died 
*./>., as we find his four sisters described as the coheirs of their 
father. All these coheirs had issue and the said issue quartered the 
(wrong) arms of DALE.

[These papers at the Rolls Office have been used but little by the men who 
make the history-books, or, indeed, by those who make the pedigrees. They 
run from the year 1554 to 1885 and are bound up in 4108 volumes. In 1790 
all eyes were turned to France; to DANTON, MARAT, ROBESPIERRE; BURKE and 
PITT and Fox. The young NELSON and the young BONAPARTE had not then 
been heard of; but very soon they were to weave round the beginning of a 
new epoch the romance with which their names will always be associated. In 
such an atmosphere as this were enacted the following minor realities.]

required number of fifty Founders and Fellows having rapidly joined, this 
Society's Memorandum and Articles of Association are in active preparation, 
for registration in due legal form. As soon as this is done a prospectus will be 
issued, and would-be Fellows, Members, or Associates may put up for election, 
the Annual Subscription being fixed at two guineas, one guinea, and half-a- 
guinea respectively. Life Fellows ten guineas. A strong Executive Com- 
mittee has been formed and the Marquess of TWEEDDALE has kindly consented 
to act as President. The Hon. Secretary (George SHERWOOD, Room 22,227 
Strand, (by Temple Bar,) London) will be pleased to answer inquiries. 

I wish to comment on one feature which might help to make the proposed 
Society self-supporting to a certain extent, to wit : the reproduction of 
manuscripts in facsimile at a reasonable charge per page of a uniform size, 
if possible, say about 8x 12 inches. To facilitate the matter, an announce- 
ment could be issued containing a request that all contributors of manuscripts 
prepare the same (preferably) with Indian-ink on architects' tracing-cloth, 
so that ordinary blue-prints or black-prints could be made direct, without 
the intervention of a camera. Still better results, however, can be attained 
where the contributor is willing to have a typist prepare his manuscript. In 
such event the typist should use a good (preferably new) black record-ribbon 
on the typewriter, and should write upon fairly' strong or tough but thin, 
translucent paper, under which should be placed a new sheet of reversed 
black carbon paper. The latter will make a reversed writing upon the back, 
thus causing two separate " images," one on the front and one on the back, 
in perfect juxtaposition with each other. In this way the requisite degree of 
opaqueness of the writing is achieved. Such sheets so written can be used 
like architects' tracings, to produce excellent blue prints or black prints in 
facsimile, at nominal cost. 

As to the permanency of the so-called black prints (or Van Dyke prints 
as they are often termed in America), I made an investigation of this point 
some years ago, and was informed by the Canadian Patent Office, Ottawa, 
that experiments and tests made with acids, etc., has established the fact that 
such prints are as permanent as Indian-ink and are therefore used freely for 
certain official records. 

Manuscripts intended for photographic reproduction as suggested above 
should have a margin of at least one inch at the left, so that the resultant 
prints will have a similar space for the purpose of binding. 


When contributors send ordinary manuscripts which are not susceptible of 
reproduction except by the use of a camera, it is still possible to avoid the 
expense of photographic plates, for an instrument using a lense has recently 
been successfully demonstrated. This new device (the Rectigraph) is indeed 
a camera but by it one can make good copies (paper negatives) of manuscripts 
direct from the latter. There is a reason to believe that these paper negatives 
can be used as negatives to produce paper positives at very small cost. 

I realize that this note relates largely to mechanical matters, but the ulti- 
mate purpose sought may perhaps justify its insertion.

MOSSE. (I. 53,70,106; II. 32). In the latter reference Mr. CHATTER- 
TON suggests that corrected pedigrees of the MOSSE family be published. 
Unfortunately, being in India, I am unable to verify the matter which has 
since arisen, nor have I the previous numbers of The Pedigree Register by me. 
I have, however, a reprint of the MOSSE pedigree as originally printed, and 
notes of the various corrections, and from these can give the following notes : 

The whole of the Irish Family, i.e. the whole of the pedigree on the 
second page of the original table, from a.a. is correct except as noted below. 

This pedigree should spring from Rev. Thomas MOSSE, rector of Mary- 
borough, Queen's County, and Prebendary of Fethard, Wexford, 1691-2 ; 
rector of Timoge and Rathaspicke 1692 ; Matric. T.C.D. 1680, aet. 17. 
Will proved Leighlin, 1732. He married Martha, daughter of Rev. Andrew 
NISBET, Rector of Timoge. Mr. Ball WRIGHT says he was the son of 
Michael MOSSE of Cork, by Mary, daughter of the Rev. Thomas BOYLE, 
and that he had a brother Rev. Michael MOSSE, Minor Canon of St. Patrick's, 
and afterwards Prebendary of Fintona, Diocese of Clogher, who matric. 
T.C.D. 1677, aet. 18. He married in 1685, Frances DRURY. 

We know that sisters of the Rev. Thomas MOSSE married respectively 

(i) FORSTER, ancestor of Sir Nicholas FORSTER, (2) Ven. Charles WHIT- 

TINGHAM, Archdeacon of Dublin, whence Bartholomew MOSSE'S wife was his 
first cousin. (3) Philip WHITTINGHAM, brother of the Archdeacon. 

The following addenda and corrigenda should be made in the pedigree : 

(1) "Thomas MOSSE, a physician," add, "born at Maryborough; matric. 

T.C.D. 1723, aet. 1 8 ; educated at Kilkenny ; married Anne (? Julian) 
daughter of Henry SHEWELL of Listowel, Co. Kerry. From him descended 
the MOSSES of Kilkenny and Mountmellick. " 

(2) Add, " another brother of preceding, 

Rev. William MOSSE, born 1713; B. A., T.C.D. 1733 ; rector of Philips- 
town, King's Co.; died unmarried 1768. " 


(3) For, "a daughter= William MOORCROFT," substitute " Mary=Rev. James 

The Coat-of-arms given with the original pedigree is that used by the 

Irish branch. 


recent Shakespearean discoveries at the Record Office seem to have aroused 
the authorities to some further inquiry as to the steps to be taken for the 
better preservation, access to, and indexing of public records still uncatalogued 
and unexamined. One might be excused for thinking that obviously the 
very first step would be to prepare Inventories (in scientific parlance 
" Class Lists ") of all the public records in the kingdom defining clearly 
what are public records in the widest possible manner. For example 
manorial Court Rolls, Assize Rolls and Quarter Sessions Rolls, Wills 
and Parish Registers, should be distinctly brought within that category. 
These Inventories (Class Lists) should have a column showing the " means 
of reference " (if any), whether Catalogue, Calendar or Index, in every 
case, placed against each enumeration of Bundle, Volume, or Roll, 
and they should be accumulated all in one building, the Public Record 
Office for choice. The Inventories could afterwards be used periodi- 
cally to check loss, transfer, and peculation. And it should be enacted 
that all ancient " public records ", without exception, of more than a hun- 
dred years old, should be freely open, without fee, to any student, all the 
year round during ordinary office hours. Failure of present custodians to 
comply and evidence of attempts to extort fees for mere inspection and 
permission to copy to be followed by immediate transference of such records 
to the Public Record Office in London. 

The Secretary of the Royal Commission is Mr. Hubert HALL, F.S.A., 
Public Record Office, Chancery Lane, London, to whom everyone who cares 
twopence about ancient records should write expressing a definite opinion on 
some definite, practicable, point. It would be of no use, for example, to 
advocate indexing every name in every record, because that would at once 
put the proposer out of court as a person of no practical experience. We may 
be sure that if little interest is expressed in the work of the Committee, little 
or nothing will be done. 

episcopal documents in the Edgar Tower has been placed in order up to the 
year 1700. The bulk of the work relates to the period before 1700. 
Consistory Court papers date from 1615 and number 12,130. The gene- 


alogical value of the papers is great, and as yet has probably never been used. 
The papers trace the rise of Nonconformity, the attack on Recusants, and the 
general tendency of each period. Presentments to benefices number 2,895. 
There is a number of documents showing the sale of next turns, and the 
presentations and bonds against simony and unlawful tithe. The section deal- 
ing with the schools and hospitals includes appointments of masters, disputes as 
to management, and the return made in 1663. Many miscellaneous docu- 
ments have come to light, the chief treasure being a fragment of a very early 
MS. of the " Romaunt de la Rose " written in the south of France. There 
is in all a total of 26,581 separate papers. (The Times.} 

dar of these documents, now at Somerset House, has been completed from the 
year 1347 down to 1489, in three volumes. There are, in the third volume, 
1467-89, notices of several bequests of books, and in the whole, references are 
given to about 1 2,240 wills of this interesting pre-reformation period.

INQUISITIONS POST MORTEM. With the Index of Inquisitions, 
vol. IV., with Appendices. (Public Record Office Lists and Indexes. No. 
XXXIII. London. H.M. Stationery Office, 1 909) the work of making bare 


lists of these records in dictionary order, comes to an end. The Appendices 
consist of lists of the Inquisitions in the Palatinate of Chester, Palatinate of 
Durham, and the Duchy of Lancaster, Henry VIII. to Charles II. There are 
few of later date than the end of Charles I. These records, otherwise 
known as Escheats, are perhaps the most frequently consulted of all personal 
records, after wills. Full calendars, or abstracts of the information contained 
in them, Henry III. to Richard III., as also of the reign of Henry VII., are 
in progress, but the work is necessarily slow, and it is unlikely that the 
later Inquisitions will be dealt with at all fully within a measurable space of 
time. The bare lists, however, will be found extremely useful and should be 
turned to in every case first, to ascertain whether the person in whom you are 
interested held land directly of the Crown. If he did do so, he will probably 
be found here, and the Escheat will shew what land he died possessed of, how 
he acquired it, and the name and age of his heir. 

SMITH. It is proposed to deposit in the library of the Historical Society 
of Pennsylvania, at Philadelphia, a collection of manuscript material, in four 
volumes comprising 1182 pages, together with some 585 illustrations, entitled 
" The Making of SMITH." This has been collected on behalf of Dr. T. 
Guilford SMITH of Buffalo, New York, by Mr. C. A. HOPPIN, and while 
chiefly illustrative of SMITH families in the United States, it comprises accounts 
of certain English families, namely LLOYD of Bristol, BRINLEY, WASE, EAST- 
WICK, HOWLAND, and HARTLEY of Lancashire. The English origin of 
Walter NEWBERY, ancestor of the NEWBERYS of Newport, Rhode Island, an 
account of whom is given in the collection, yet remains to be discovered. 

CLAYTON, Penarwel, 1908. Single sheet, 5ft. 2^"xi8". This gives the 
descendants of Edward CLAYTON (1699-1767) of Bamber Bridge, Leyland, 
Lancashire, linen-printer, who according to ABRAM'S History of Blackburn 
and BAINES'S History of Lancashire, introduced the art of linen-printing into 
Lancashire. It is said that he was an elder brother of George CLAYTON, 
ancestor of the Weigh-house preachers, for whose history see the history of the 
family of AVELING. Edward CLAYTON married Frances NAILOR who survived 
him and died in 1795. We should like to have seen in the printed sheet the 
surname repeated in the case of most of the men CLAYTONS. To omit this 
makes the table less clear than it might be to those unfamiliar with the family. 
The arms are given as Urgent, a cross engrailed sable, between four torteaux. 
The Crest a dexter arm and hand with a dagger. We miss the date of grant 
or other authority, and we think the places of birth or baptism, marriage, 
death, and burial should have been given in every case. We hope Mr. CLAYTON 
will be induced to reprint the chart with these details inserted, although we 
appreciate his putting together what he has done and value his work highly.

tfatfae of gnn Q^ie, Qtorfofft. 

The following interesting letter describes the rescue of the Lynn 
charters from CROMWELL in 1656, by the town clerk, Francis ROLFE, 
who evidently considered that the actual physical possession of these 
pieces of parchment was essential to their effectiveness. The original 
draft of the letter is in the possession of Mr. Eustace NEVILLE- 
ROLFE, C. V. O., H. M. Consul at Naples, the present head of the 
ROLFE family. 

The occasion was in the summer of 1656 when the borough of 
Lynn sent its ancient Charters to CROMWELL, congratulating him upon 
his accession to power, formally resigning all liberties and privileges, 
and praying for a new Charter, which was granted. 

The Town Clerk, possessed with a sense of the importance of pre- 
serving the earlier documents, surreptitiously removed them from the 
office of the clerk of the Council to whom they were entrusted for the 
preparation of the new one, and gleefully carried them back to Lynn. 

Within a month of the accession of Charles II., on 23 June 1660, 
the Corporation of Lynn " agreed and ordered that Oliver's charter 
confirming the privileges of the town be cancelled ". 

Seventeen years later, and but a few months before his death, 
ROLFE prayed the Corporation for " further kindness and favour " on 
account of what he considered had been his services in the matter ; 
either not knowing himself, or imagining the Corporation would be 
ignorant, that such documents would be "of record" and enrolled on 
the Patent Rolls or Charter Rolls in London. The whole affair is 
very funny and characteristic. 

Francis ROLFE died in 1678 and is buried in St. Nicholas, Lynn, 
where there is a tombstone inscribed to his memory. We are much 
indebted to Miss BLACK of Heacham for permission to print the letter 
and explanatory notes.

" My Grandfather's letter about keeping the Lynn old Charters

" To the right worthy the Mayor, Alderman and Common 
Council of the Borough of King's Lynn in Norfolk. 

Nothing is more grievous to the spirit of man than to know he 
hath well deserved of his friend yet apprehended himself ill requi- 
ted though happily there be no just cause of his supposition but 
his friend being ignorant of his kindness cannot retaliate as other- 
wise he would. This put me upon begging your Council freely to 
demonstrate wherein I considered this Corporation stands obliged 
to me upon a particular score for which I account myself to merit 
their respects. And forasmuch as I believe the same may be alto- 
gether unknown to most of you and forgotten by the rest I am 
bold to give you this account thereof as briefly as I can. About 
May or June in the year of Our Lord 1656 Mr. Thomas TOLL 
then being Mayor These several Charters of this Corporation 
namely that of King John the two Charters of Henry the VIII, 
that of P. and Mary and that of K James were by order of the 
house sent to London to Oliver Lord Protector with a petition 
handed by the same house briefly congratulating his access to the 
Government and a full resignation of all the liberties and privileges 
of this town to him ; and how all members of the same house were 
ordered to attend the same, who accordingly in solemn manner 
upon their knees actually surrendered up all the said Charters and 
all your liberties and privileges in them contained into the Lord 
Protector's own hands who received the same from the hands of 
Mr. Recorder GODDARD with abundant expressions of gratitude 
and great love for this town. And after he had read what he plea- 
sed in them and ready to dismiss the company I began to gather 
up the Charters and would have carried them away but Oliver laid 
his hand upon me saying c Nay, Nay young man these are mine 
and belong to me and I will take care of them and keep them ' ; at 
which I was very much troubled but durst not say a word ; And 
after this there being occasion to make use of these Charters for 
drawing up a new one by them ; we were enforced to petition him 
by the means of Maior Generall DESBOROW and Col JOANES he was 
pleased to deliver them to the care of one Mr. JESSOPP clerk of the 


Council upon whom we were ordered to attend, upon all occasions 
for our inspection of them, And he being wearied with our often 
attendance was pleased upon my engagement and promise of redeli- 
vering them to himself to deliver them into my hands he being 
well acquainted with me long before And we having after severall 
weeks time finished Oliver's new Charter I fearing the consequen- 
ces of loosing the old Charters purposely forgot to deliver them 
back to JESSOP according to my engagement but brought them away 
to Lynn without taking any leave of him only leaving the boxes 
behind for fear of discovery and after this I lived a long time in 
terrible fear of being questioned for the same and of being sent for 
by a pursuivant and was enforced during Oliver's time to be silent 
lest I might meet with some enemies and this account hath rested 
for long as it is almost totally forgotten : And now I hope you will 
look upon this as so signal a kindness done to this Corporation and 
every one of you (by preserving your Charters the grounds of your 
ancient rights and privileges which cost your predecessors many 
thousands of pounds in acquiring) And this done by me with the 
apparent hazard of ruin and destruction of me and of my very 
being, you will acknowledge I desire your continued favours in a 
greater measure that any that have gone before me besides such a 
reward as may encourage others that shall succeed me ; Especially 
if you shall please to consider the sad consequences the loss of the 
Charters would have been unto you. All the footsteps of your 
rights and privileges being totally abrogated and nothing left but 
the infamy and reproach of being unfaithful and disloyal subjects 
and having nothing to rely upon but what you had inadvisedly 
accepted from the hands of a wicked traitor and how could you 
have looked upon his Sacred Majesty for gaining a new Charter 
from him having thus renounced his Government and what would 
have been expected but the seizure of your lands as well as privi- 
leges there being persons about the King fit and willing to have 
begged the same. But now by the retrieving of your old Charters 
and having them in your custody it was no more but destroying or 
burning Oliver's and concealing it and then by help of the act of 
Oblivion al was salved with little or no noise. This I faithfully 
assure you is truth and hope you will duly consider of it and 
having heard my petition will not only think me worthy of having 


my desires gratified therein but of such further kindness and 

favour, as you shall esteem consonant to reason And leaving all 

this and my self to your Worship's pleasure 1 subscribe myself. 

Your most faithful humble and 
obedient Servant in all things 
(Signed) Fr. ROLFE. 

Lynn, February the 4th., 1677." 

Notes on the above document : 

The writer of the letter, Francis ROLFE, was elected Town Clerk of 
Lynn, 29th. August 1654. He was discharged from the office of 
Town Clerk on the 8th. Dec. 1662, but reinstated on the 5th. of 
Jan. 1671. He continued in office till his death in 1678. 

Thomas TOLL was Mayor of Lynn 1665-6. 

Guibon GODDARD, Counsellor at law, was elected Recorder of Lynn, 
3ist. Jan. 1650-1. 

Major General DESBOROW is mentioned in PEPY'S Diary in these 
terms. April i7th. 1667. "In our way in Tower st we met DES- 
BOROUGH walking on foot ; who is now no more a prisoner, and looks 
well, and just as he used to heretofore". 

Footnote in Lord BRAYBROOK'S edition : 

" Major General John DESBOROW, CROMWELL'S brother-in-law, and 
one of his Council of State ; afterwards promoted to the Chancellor- 
ship of Ireland by his nephew Richard CROMWELL." 

From Norfolk Official Lists : 

" Major General John DISBROW was elected M. P. for Lynn nth. 
August 1656 and seems to have succeeded Guybon GODDARD. Was 
he put in as a creature of CROMWELL'S ? 

Colonel John JONES was impeached under the Commonwealth, 
with General LUDLOW and Miles CORBET, for treasonable practices in 
Ireland, and was tried in the Star Chamber 1659-60." 

PEPYS mentions JESSOP as Secretary to the Commissioners for 
Accounts Jan. 3ist. 1667-8. "They have Mr. JESSOP their Secreta- 
ry: and it is pretty to see that they are fain to find out an oldfashion- 
ed man of CROMWELL'S to do their business for them."

of jwrpoo* 

Henry PARK was born in Water Street, Liverpool, in one of two 
large houses which were demolished not long before 1840. Miss 
Elizabeth PARK when writing a memoir of her father, which she print- 
ed in 1840, said, "in his ancestry there was little remarkable unless 
it were the transmission of an easy competence through many genera- 
tions, so that he used to declare not an individual of the race had for 
three hundred years evinced c either the talent to enrich or the spirit 
to ruin himself ". He went to a school kept by the Rev d . Mr. WOL- 
STENHOLME, and there commenced Henry PARK'S lifelong friendship 
with the Rev d . H. ROUGHSEDGE, Rector of Liverpool. At the age of 
fourteen he was apprenticed to James BROMFIELD, a surgeon of Liver- 
pool Infirmary, an uncle by marriage. During this apprenticeship, 
there were 600 French prisoners in the dep6t, whose health was 
entrusted to the care of Mr. BROMFIELD'S pupil, apparently without 
even the affectation of superintendence. Mr. PARK and his charges 
grew much attached to each other. At the end of the first apprentice- 
ship Henry PARK went to London and served his second apprentice- 
ship in the house of the celebrated Mr. POTT, after whom is named 
the fracture known as "POTT'S fracture". From there he went to the 
Hotel Dieu at Rouen, France. Mr. POTT urgently recommended 
PARK to settle in London, but, influenced by consideration for his 
mother, he decided on Liverpool, and about the year 1766, when in 
his twenty-second year, he refunded to his mother the expenses of his 
education. In 1776 he took a house in Basnett Street, Liverpool, 
which was then so much in the outskirts of Liverpool that many 
thought the young man presumptuous to expect a practice to follow 
him so far. His own length of life enabled him to witness an increase 
in the size of Liverpool unparalleled unless in the growth of towns 
in America, and when to his own recollections were added the records 
with which he had been familiar in his boyhood the change became 
astounding. These were received from his father's mother f, whom 
he remembered erect in stateliness, till, as Henry PARK used to say 
"she died an untimely death, a martyr to the gout, at the age of 96". 
She often spoke of the town as she remembered it, consisting of only 
four streets, and her temper, which was not the most gentle, would 
often suffer if anything reminded her of her husband's want of fore- 
sight, in selling for ^90 a piece of land in the vicinity of Liverpool 
which she had lived to see sold again for between 400 and 500. 
How would she have borne the trial, could her grandson Henry PARK

Chester, to John PARK, of Liverpool, mariner. Maiden name unknown. 


then have predicted that he himself should see this piece of ground in 
the heart of the town (1840) again change hands at the price of 4000 
and at last attain the value of 32,000 ! 

In 1788 Mr. PARK removed to Bold Street, and it was during his 
time here in 1804 and 1805 that he was present at the duels between 
Lieutenant SPARLING and Mr. GRAYSON and Major BROOKS and Colo- 
nel BOLTON (see Liverpool Daily Posf, 16 April, 1897.) 

In February 1798 the people of Liverpool subscribed 17,000 to 
enable the Government to meet the enormous expenses of the War. 
Henry PARK subscribed 100 ; he was Surgeon to the Liverpool 
Corps of Artillery Volunteers, the appointment of Henry PARK of 
Liverpool, surgeon, gentleman, being dated " Court at St. James's 
ii May, 1797 ". 

In 1788, though his business was great, Henry PARK still found 
some leisure for gardening. He was much attached to a piece of land 
in Smith Down Lane, near Liverpool, which had belonged, Miss 
E. PARK states, to his family from the time of Queen Elizabeth, and 
a few stunted trees in 1840 marked the boundaries of that portion of 
it, now intersected by Parliament Street, which he cultivated as a 

In 1798 he resigned his office of surgeon at the Infirmary of Liver- 
pool, which he had held since 1767. In 1820 he went to live at a 
house, Belle Vue, at Wavertree. This house he named " Wavertree 

He kept a Register of all the births that he attended, 4000, which 
he used to call his " Book of Genesis ". It was deposited after his 
death in the Library of the Liverpool Medical Institute. 

Henry PARK'S sister, Mary, born 1732 (Miss PARK), in the land 
allotted to her, had an interesting parcel of ground near Liverpool, 
afterwards known as the Jericho Strawberry Gardens, which had been 
held for above 200 years by a three life lease under the house of 

His sister Anne, born 1740, married as her second husband, John 
BARNES of Walthamstow and Lincoln's Inn Fields, and was mother of 
Lieutenant-General Sir Edward BARNES, G. C. B., K. M. T., M. P., 
Governor of Ceylon, Commander-in-Chief in India, Adjutant-General 
of the British Army at the Battle of Waterloo, where he was wounded. 

Henry PARK in his lifetime broke twenty-one bones in his body. 
He was the first surgeon to operate for excision of the ankle joint. 
He and M r PRESTON (of FAWCETT & PRESTON'S foundry) bore the 
expense of sending GIBSON (sculptor of the tinted Venus) to Rome to 
study art. The PARK family were friends of Mrs. HEMANS the

Mr. John BUNTING of the parish of Quainton, Bucks, farmer, some- 
time churchwarden, overseer and constable, like a good business man 
kept careful accounts of his business, and, no doubt agreeing with 
Lord ST. ALBANS that " writing maketh an exact man ", also made 
notes of other matters. The extracts here given include all the parti- 
culars of genealogical interest. They appear to be notes of those 
events which later on were more fully noticed in the Parish Register, 
and may have been made in his capacity as churchwarden. In addi- 
tion Mr. BUNTING entered the names, etc., of his horses, names of his 
fields, crops, prices of produce in Aylesbury Market, comments on the 
weather, etc., etc., the whole forming an interesting little record of 
village life no years ago. These entries are arranged, for conve- 
nience, in order of date.

HERALDIC ANOMALIES. An excellent little book bearing this title, 
published anonymously in 1824 (London : G. and W. B. Whittaker], contains 
the following amusing lines which seem well worth reprinting. 

" A female of low birth, but great vanity, had married a gentleman who 
became a knight ; on the decease of the latter, for fear the heraldic atchievements 
on her carnage should no longer shew her to be a Lady, she added the knight's 
open helmet to her widow's Lozenge, which was the occasion of the following 
jeu d' esprit :. 

" Some wedded Dames, unless forsworn 
Have oft their husband's small clothes worn 

All order to o'erwhelm ; 
But woman since fam'd Joan of Arc, 
Excuse the freedom of remark, 

Ne'er wore the glitt'ring helm. 

If Title needs must deck your car 
Heraldic laws you should not mar 

To trump your knightly fame ; 
Though it imply, and so far right, 
That Spousy was a simple knight, 

And you're a simple Dame. 

The Lozeng'd shield's sufficient sure 
For widow's purpose to allure 

And all her wants to trace ;

But wear you must the Helmet too, 

Close it to hide your Face." 

The Records of Naval Men, by Gerald FOTHERGILL. London : Chas A. Bernau 
1910. 12 mo., pp. 113. Price 2s. 6d. net. 

Not long ago when examining the accounts of Aylesbury Gaol we made 
many extracts like this : 

" 1779. Charges for carrying James DUMBARTON, Edw. KERBY, to the 

Marine Society and putting them on board the Tender at the Tower. 
Carrying William AYRES and Thos. SMITH to Tower Hill and delivered 

them to a Midshipman. 
Carrying five convicts to Woolwich, etc." 
Instead of imprisonment, or, perhaps, hanging, these sinners were sentenced 


to sea service : a procedure which seems to justify the opinion of Dr. JOHNSON 
that " a ship is worse than a gaol... with the additional disadvantage of being in 
danger ". Had we been anxious to learn the fate of the above men we should 
not have known how to proceed ; but now in The Records of Naval Men, 
paragraph 113 tells us where the books dealing with convicts are to be found ; 
though, unaccountable omission, this paragraph is not in the Index ! Thus fate 
allows us to illustrate at once the great usefulness (and the little weakness) of 
this very welcome little volume. 

The average sailor of the i8th. century was not usually a born seaman. 
Kidnapped by a crimp, seized by a press-gang, transferred from a prison, he was 
not devoured by a yearning for life on the ocean in one of His Majesty's ships, 
and, " once on board the lugger " his career usually terminated in death abroad; 
but, still, some of him had another fate, and the details of his life (and death) 
and prize-money are on record. Mr. FOTHERGILL tells us how to proceed, 
where to go, and what we shall find in naval records : his book is one of the 
essential working-tools of the searcher in these mazes. Every student must use 
" Fothergill " in future when designing the history of a ship, a campaign, a 
period, a policy, and, in some cases, when writing a biography : e. g. how much 
that is new may we not now find concerning SMOLLETT ? 

We regret that the index is not a fitting crown to so excellent a work ; we 
have read and re-read this " working-tool " with increasing appreciation, and 
have annotated the index. Some of our additions refer to " smugglers, 39 "; 
" letters of Marque, 42 "; " convicts, 113"; " transports, 58 ". 

Vast numbers of men were employed in the Navy during the i8th. century, 
for we were at war nearly all the time. Laird CLOWES says that during the 
war which ended in 1763, the number of men who served in the Royal Navy 
was 185,000. Only 1512 were returned as killed ; and as only 50,000 were 
on the books at the end of the war, the missing and died by sickness were 
133,000 odd in number. Every family in the Kingdom must have had a 
member or members in the service, and be interested in the genealogical value 
of the records. 

As a proof of that amiable weakness which causes the sailor to be credited 
with a wife in every port, Mr. FOTHERGILL writes in par. 96, "Not infrequent- 
ly two widows would claim in respect of one man ". 

Annah of Two Extinct Families, by Col. J. A. TEMPLE. London : F. V. White 
and Co Ltd. 1910. 8vo. pp. xii, 152. Price ros. od. 

The two extinct families, that is, extinct in the male line, are VON LUDERS 
and LIGHT. The first is traced in Hamburg from 1545, became naturalized in 
England in the i8th. century, and settled at Bath, where a member married 
into the LIGHT family. 


The LIGHTS of Baglake were a branch of the LYTES of Lytes Gary. Both 
families devoted their energies to the public service, civil and military, and did 
efficient work without attaining any great distinction. They may be taken as 
good examples of those many middle-class families whose members have acquired, 
administered and fought for the possessions of the Crown beyond the seas. 

Col. Alexander LIGHT in 1832 headed a band of emigrants to Canada, all of 
good family, and settled at Woodstock, Ontario. He died in 1857, a "d tne 
tablet to his memory states wrongly : (i) his father's name ; (2) his father's post 
in India ; (3) his mother's rank and (4) that she was a maid of honour to Marie- 
Antoinette ! 

The twenty-two illustrations of miniatures, portraits, arms, and views, together 
with the two very nicely done chart pedigrees, add value to the book ; but the 
omission of the surname in describing persons named in the charts makes them 
less clear than they might be. There is no index. 

How to Trace a Pedigree, by H. A. CROFTON. London : Elliot Stock, 1911. 
8vo., pp. 67. Price 2s. od. net. 

Probably, having emerged from our novitiate, our power of appreciation is 
atrophied for elementary books like How to Trace a Pedigree ; hence our tepid 
approval of Mr. CROFTON'S production. To begin with, ten or twelve thou- 
sand words is hardly enough to deal properly with the subject. Mr. CROFTON 
may have been restricted as to space, but even in that case he might have con- 
densed more information. Twice he gives the golden advice to * verify your 
information ' ; his instructions how to do so lack lucidity. Parish registers are 
mentioned without any details as to their extent, reliability, or the way to 
arrange a search : and on p. 31 we are told that at the Registrar-General's office 
a search over five years costs five shillings ; perhaps a misprint for one shilling. 
On p. 2 1 we read " For nineteenth-century searches Census Returns may be 
consulted " ! We rejoiced at this, but will Mr. CROFTON add to our satisfaction 
by telling us where they can be seen and by what means we can study them ? 
for he has tantalized us by concealing this important knowledge. A study of 
" Leading records in Pedigree Cases" (Pedigree Register, vol. I., p. 273) might 
have helped our Author, for his sins of omission are as noticeable as his errors of 
commission. Finally, he recommends to the neophyte in palaeography a book 
which we have found far from " smoothing away our difficulties in a wonderful 
manner "; and which, taken with his own, would not enable the beginner to 
make much, if any, progress. 

This book is more a pleasing evidence that there is a wider interest arising in 
genealogy than a satisfactory guide to the pursuit. 

The Churchyard Inscriptions of the City of London, by Percy C. RUSHEN. 
London : Phillimore and Co., Ltd. 1910. 8vo., pp. xii., 114. Price 8s. 6d. 


During those rare intervals when rain was not falling last year, we copied all 
the epitaphs in a small country churchyard, and when the occasion seemed 
favourable we deferentially hinted to the chief local resident, a gentleman 
renowned for geniality and generosity (and substance), that he might like to 
print them ; but, verba per attentam non ibunt Ceesaris aurem, perhaps, nisi dextro 
tempore, was lacking. He refused the idea, " of no value nor interest ", said he : 
and we shut up. That is the sentiment of the public on this matter ; the vul- 
gar is of that opinion to this hour. It remains for the discerning enthusiasm of 
Messrs. RUSHEN and PHILLIMORE to do good openly, and not change colour to 
find it fame by producing Churchyard Inscriptions of the City of London. We 
have, none but can have, emphatic commendation for this book. The writer's 
preface tells us of some of the difficulties he encountered during his work among 
the soot-sodden sepulchral stones of the City in 59 burial yards. As evidence 
of atmospheric destructive agencies he mentions having witnessed on one occa- 
sion chemical action in visible progress. Until we read his preface we did not 
realise how much time we saved on one expedition in our youth, by climbing an 
iron railing in the City. Among the inscriptions we notice one of a MAVOR of 
spelling-book renown ; another concerning Percival POTT, the famous surgeon 
who gave his name to POTT'S fracture, and POTT'S curvature of the spine (it 
isn't a curve, by the bye, but an angle), with other members of his family, 
spelled " POTTS " on his grave-stone ; in the " D. N. B., " he has no final s. 
Also we find GOLDSMITH and Lord Mayor Sir William STAINES, cum multis aim. 

There is an index of places, and of armorial bearings, and of names. The 
last includes all those baptismal names which appear to be surnames, a most 
useful idea. Only one who has worked in churchyards can fully appreciate the 
time, labour, enterprise and energy which Mr. RUSHEN has given to this useful 
and necessary book.

Society's Monographs, No. 4. London : The Manorial Society, I Mitre Court 
Buildings, Temple, E. C. 1910. 410.. pp. 13. 

A sanitarian, discussing sewage, told us that it was not difficult to kill a germ; 
the difficulty was to get at the germ. We sympathised, as experiencing an 
analogous state of affairs. We do not find it difficult to eviscerate a document ; 
the trouble is to get at the document. The Manorial Society does good work 
in diminishing part of our complaint by indicating where a certain class of 
documents may be found : and in the Lists of Manor Court Rolls in Private 
Hands y of which Part III. is now issued, we are told certain particulars in addi- 
tion to the name of the present possessor of the record : e. g. the Manor of 
Edwin Ralph, 1 4 Rolls, with the names of the various Lords and the dates 
covered by the rolls, and a list of the surnames occurring therein. W. B. 

The Pedigree Register 

JUNE 1911] [VoL. II, No. 17. 

Cfaci o 

All families, whether of humble or of gentle origin, have some 
characteristic traits which are more markedly exhibited in their members 
than others. This hereditary property is more marked in houses of 
gentle origin, because, with a gentle birth comes, as a natural conse- 
quence, family pride, and this pride of race brings with it a pride of 
certain natural features, or traits, which, by force of imitation and 
mental suggestion, come inevitably to be transmitted from one genera- 
tion to succeeding generations. 

Thus it is that the CLACK family, a race which, through many vi- 
cissitudes, through periods of financial depression or mental obscurity, 
has always remembered its gentle origin, and the responsibilities 
attaching to it; has maintained its racial traits as perfectly as originally. 

The most marked natural characteristics, or physical features, are the 
finely- pencilled and slightly arched eyebrows, the Roman nose, the high 
and broad forehead, black hair and fine teeth, and the dark blue eyes. 
The facial expression generally seems to evince a calm content with 
things as they are; with, albeit, a soup9on of contempt, not, be it said, 
of persons, but of the trivialities and small things which vex the 
common run of mankind a contempt which is verbally embodied in 
the family motto " Aquila non captat muscas." As to dispositional 
properties, the temper is mostly, as indexed in the features, calm and 
collected, with perhaps an irritable tendency on occasion. An ultra- 
Tory state of mind forbids any familiar intercourse with the proletariat; 
though, at the same time, the gentle spirit of chivalry always insists 
on a sincere consideration and regard for the feelings of the multitude 
a consideration and regard which, unlike the " patronage " of the 
parvenu, earn an affectionate gratitude and respect, rather than a passive, 
though none the less sturdy, resentment. 

This character, as I have lightly sketched it, is the average and most 
general one in our family, and, I hope, does not betoken a prejudiced 
view through rose-tinted spectacles. Like every family, of whatsoever 
standing, the CLACK family has had, and, unfortunately, ever must have, 


its black sheep. There have been weak men, there have been strong; 
there have been drunkards, there have been mere abstainers; there 
have been immoral members, there have been many more thoroughly 
pure; there have been bad CLACKS, but there have been many more 
who have not unworthily worn the cloth of the Church, or have faith- 
fully discharged the duties of the State. Within my own experience 
I have known many instances where a CLACK has been recognised by 
his bearing and manner, but two cases in which I was the subject seem 
to me most remarkable; and, since I am in a position to vouch for 
their truth, I record them here. 

Whilst on a stay with friends at the Manor, Wiveliscombe, I paid 
a visit to Powderham Castle, the seat of my kinsman, the Earl of 
DEVON. The whole place was of the deepest interest to me, so that I 
did not evince any more interest in one thing than in another. Not- 
withstanding this, an old retainer, who must have been close on 90 years, 
said to me afterwards (he was not aware of my identity), " If I might 
make so bold, Sir, you do remind me of a visitor we had here at the 
castle in the old Earl's time, when I was a boy. When you stood 
before that picture of the 2nd Viscountess I saw him again; he used 
to stand just as you did, only he was copying one of the young ladies 
out of the group." Naturally interested, I enquired the name of this 
visitor of the past. " Oh, Sir," he replied, " he was a cousin of the 
Earl's a Mr. CLACK he was, and related to the 2nd Viscountess up 
there " (pointing to the group). I afterwards learned that the old man 
spoke of my great-great-uncle, Richard Augustus CLACK. 

The second case was more recent, when, during my stay at Oke- 
hampton, Devon, for artillery practice, I went to Moreton Hampstead, 
with which place our family has been so long and closely rekted. By 
a lucky chance I happened upon a former sexton, and in course of 
conversation we discussed every local topic including the rector of 
Moreton Hampstead. By no word or gesture had I, to my knowledge, 
intimated who I was, and yet, to my surprise, my aged friend suddenly 
exclaimed, with the delightful accent and pronunciation peculiar to 
Devonians "I'll be danged, zur, ef you bain't a CLACK you mind 
me of ould Passon an' Maister Willum too an' when you smiles I 
sees 'em all in one. They be rare 'uns when they laughs and shows 
their teeth, an' fine white teeth they had too, the young ladies! " 
This reference was to the Reverend William Courtenay CLACK (who 
died in 1900, aged 83) and his family, and is the more remarkable in 
that our nearest common ancestor is Thomas CLACK, also a Rector of 
Moreton Hampstead, my three-times-great-grandfather^ and the Revd. 
William Courtenay CLACK'S grandfather. 



[One seems to require a definition of " gentle origin." While in 
sympathy with much of the foregoing one may say that no family is 
really of gentle origin except in the sense that "Adam was a gentle- 
man," and that the " peerage " is more closely akin to each one of us 
than seems to be generally recognized. One cannot speak of the 
gentle descent of a whole family, because there is none whose ancestors 
have not been for longer or shorter periods grossly plebeian. 

The CLACK family harks back to an innkeeper, the landlord of 
"The Bell" Inn, now "The Lamb," at Wallingford; who lived there 
from 1721 to 1759, and had ten children baptized at St. Peter's Church. 
That attractiveness of person and strength of character may crop up in 
surroundings not by any means conducive to the highest culture is 
shewn by the history of three of the daughters. These girls, instead 
of having their heads turned by the attentions of aristocratic admirers 
and yielding themselves unreservedly, insisted upon their full price, 
or else their father saw that it was paid. 

Sally married Charles, son of Sir Charles PALMER of Dorney Court, 
baronet; Betty married William HONYWOOD, also the son of a baronet; 
and Fanny married, 7 May 1762, William COURTENAY, a boy of 19, 
whose father had been created a Viscount only the day before (6 May). 
The father died almost immediately after (16 May), and the son thus 
succeeded to the title, by the veriest chance, as second Viscount 
COURTENAY of Powderham Castle, Devon, within a few days of his 
marriage to the innkeeper's daughter. 

The rise of the family fortunes, therefore, or rather the elevation of 
the family to superior surroundings, began with this amorous adven- 
ture; for the young Lord COURTENAY made his brother-in-law CLACK 
his chaplain and put him into the family living of Moreton Hampstead. 

Physical attractiveness does crop up in most unexpected places; but 
we do not think it can persist in families without nobility of character. 
It has, in this family, so persisted. Wallingford and Oxford lie within 
a morning's gallop. A good paper entitled " The Young Blood of 
Oxford, its Influence on the Female Population within a radius of 
twelve miles" would make interesting reading. ED.]

The first part of this pedigree is taken from the Visitation of London 
1634, by Gilbert DETHICK, Garter, (Harl. Soc. Vol. XVII, p. 85) 
and the remainder has been compiled from notes of wills and other 
information supplied by Mr. W. H. MASON, of Morton Hall, Notts, 
and by members of the BUCKLE family. 

Robert MASON, LL.D., of Greenwich, also inherited property in 
St. Clement Danes from his father, was Fellow of St. John's, 
Cambridge, Secretary to the Duke of BUCKINGHAM, Chancellor of 
the Diocese of Winchester, and Master of the Requests to 

He must not be confused with his contemporary, Robert MASON, 
LL.D., M.P., Recorder of London. 

Captain John MASON was born at King's Lynn, and was baptised 
in St. Margaret's Church nth Dec. 1586. He matriculated at 
Magdalen College, Oxford, 2fth June 1602, and became Governor 
of Newfoundland 1615, Commissary General for Victualling the 
Cadiz Expedition 1626, Treasurer and Paymaster of the Army, 
1 6 May 1627, and his name occurs in connection with the pay and 
victualling of the troops on several occasions in the Irish State 
Papers 1628-9. He founded the Colony of New Hampshire 1631, 
which would indicate a connection with the Hampshire MASONS, 
became Captain of Southsea Castle 1634 and first Vice-Admiral of 
New England ist Oct. 1635. He died shortly after and was buried 
in Westminster Abbey in December of that year. A tablet, to 
replace one which had fallen into disrepair, was unveiled in 
St. Alfege's Church, Greenwich, 22nd Oct. 1905, to the memory 
of Vice- Admiral Sir Christopher MASON.

Particulars of the Stepney tombstone will be found in Genealogical 
Queries, Vol. I, page 72 ; further details in the Genealogical Magazine, 
Vol. I, pp. 288 and 362. The marriage licence of Johnathen SHAKE- 
SPEARE and Eliz. SHALLETT was for Clapham and was agreed to by 
her mother (unnamed) and her uncle Arthur SHALLETT of Southwark 
and Clapham, woodmonger (i.e. coal-merchant). Thus her father 
was evidently dead. He was probably Francis SHALLETT. The 
marriage did not take place at Clapham; very likely at St. Paul's, 

Johnathen the 2nd describes himself as of St. Mary-at-H ill, "lighter- 
man," in his will, but mentions his coal business in which his partner 
was John MAINTON, his sister's son. He desires to be carried to the 
grave in Stepney by six members of the Society at the Sun Tavern 
in Billingsgate "of which Society I am a member." His office was 
at the Newcastle Coffee House in Billingsgate, and he directs that 
his son, then at Mr. BURGH'S boarding school in Newington Green, 
be admitted to the coal business when of suitable age. He left to 
his brother John SHAKESPEARE " the curious statue of the poet 
SHAKESPEARE on a bracket" and various casts in plaster of Paris. 

This statue of SHAKESPEARE, John in his turn left to Mr. Thomas 
CHILLINGWORTH, Apothecary. There is also mentioned a picture of 
Johnathen by SEYMOUR, and a picture of an old woman by Lois. 
John SHAKESPEARE died a rich man, as in addition to his house in 
Stepney Causeway he left 5,000 to his son Arthur, ^4,000 each to 
his sons John and David, and 18,000 on Trust for his other chil- 
dren. He mentions his brother-in-law Colin CURRIE of London, mer- 
chant, and makes him one of his executors. He issued a trade token. 

The Will of Arthur SHAKESPEARE, M.P., is not in P.C.C., nor is 
that of his widow. He apparently had a son, Arthur SHAKESPEARE, 
and a grandson, John Matthew SHAKESPEARE, born 2 April 1844.

appears on the title-page, and the entries at the end in the same hand-writing 
are presumably those of his children.

Arms granted, 14 Sep. 1708, to Timothy, s. of Thomas PERRY, of 
Cirencester : Az. a fesse embattled argent between 3 pears pendant or. 
Crest: From the top of a tower gules , a cubit arm erect in armour ', the 
gauntlet holding a sword, allppr. (Add. MS. 14830.) 

Arms granted, 24 Mar. 1717-18, to Samuel PERRY, of Goodman's 
Fields : Vert a fesse embattled ermine between 3 pears pendant or. 
Crest : A castle with two towers gules from the top a cubit arm erect in 
armour^ the gauntlet holding a sword allppr. (Add. MS. 14830.) 

The above arms occur on a monument at Turville, and the following 
on an escutcheon of pretence: Quarterly. One & four, Vert a 
bend sinister or, in dexter chief a mullet of six points of the last. Two 
& three, Gules three closed and clasped boo\s or [for OVEY?]. 

The arms occur also on Thomas PERRY'S tomb at Cirencester 
(1707), and on John PERRY'S monument at Spalding, Lines. 


On the monument at Turville it states that William PERRY, buried in 
1677, was the second son of Christopher PERRY, Esq., of Kenn, 
Somerset, but this seems improbable. Christopher PERRY, of 
Kenn, died in 1619, but left no sons. There was however a 
Christopher PERRY, of Clevedon, Somerset, yeoman, living in 
1616, who may have been the father of William PERRY. 

Thomas PERRY of Turville, whose will was proved in 1725, mentions 
his niece, Grace Anna Maria, wife of the Hon. Thos. COVENTRY. 
Her maiden name was BROWN, and it is not clear who her mother 
was, but she was of Stratfield Turgis, Hants, at the time of her 
marriage. The Marriage Licence runs as follows: " COVENTRYE, 
Thomas, of Hambledon, Bucks, widower, and Gratia Anna Maria 
BROWN, of Stratfield Turgiss, Hants." 

The children of William PERRY, of Penshurst, took the name 
and arms of SIDNEY in 1752. 

I am indebted for the admirable drawings of the arms to Mr. J. 
TAVENOR-PERRY. On Elizabeth PERRY'S Lozenge PERRY quarters 
BARNESLEY, with SIDNEY on an escutcheon of pretence.

(See page 79.) 

Mr. Gilbert ROBERTSON was appointed catechist in the parish of 
Coutin 31 August 1726, but he resigned the position a week after 
and became travelling tutor to Sir Harry MUNRO, of Fowlis, whom he 
accompanied to the academy of the celebrated Rev d . Dr. Philip 
DODDRIDGE at Northampton, studied Divinity under him, was licensed 
to preach the Gospel 22 August 1737, and was ordained by a class of 
Nonconformists in Northampton 7 June 1739, Dr. DODDRIDGE 
acting as moderator. Mr. ROBERTSON received a Presbyterian call in 
1740 to the church and parish of Dingwall, but the commission of 
assembly reversed the appointment in November following, the cause 
being that the MACKENZIES in Dingwall objected to having as minister 
a man who had been tutor to the heir of Fowlis. 

On 2 June 1741 Mr. Joseph MUNRO was called to Edderton, but 
on the day appointed for moderating in the call, the Presbytery found 
that while the heritors were unanimous in his favour, all the elders, 
and some of the heads of families in Edderton, desired to have the 
Rev d . Gilbert ROBERTSON appointed as their minister, and they peti- 
tioned the Presbytery accordingly. The Presbytery referred the case 
to the Synod of Ross, who, at a meeting held on 13 April 1742, 
sustained the call to Mr. Joseph MUNRO. After a petition from the 
whole parish of Kincardine, co. Ross (7 April 1742), the Rev 4 . 
Gilbert ROBERTSON was presented by George, Earl of CROMARTY, on 
the 10 July, and admitted 31 August 1742 Minister of that parish. 

Sir John MUNRO. These details are from Alexander McKENziz's 
History of the Munros. He was a member of the Convention of the 
estates of Scotland at the Revolution in 1688, and a very zealous 
promoter of that change in the Presbytery. During the period which 
intervened between the Restoration and the Revolution, from 1660 to 
1 68 8, his eminent piety and zeal exposed him to great suffering in the 
cause of religion. His estates were harassed by fine and burdened so 
that it is said they have never yet recovered. Sir John, with his 
mother the Dowager Lady MUNRO of Fowlis, was present in her house 
at Obsdale in September 1675, wnen the Lord's Supper was being 
administered by the Rev d . John MACKILLICAN, Minister of Alnes, the 


Rev d . Hugh ANDERSON of Cromarty, and Alexander FRASER of Daviot, 
Sir Roderick MACKENZIE of Findon, at the instigation of John PATER- 
SON, Bishop of Ross, sent a party of soldiers to apprehend Mr. 
MACKILLICAN, but before their arrival the communicants had dis- 
persed themselves and concealed the ministers. Mr. MACKILLICAN, 
according to tradition, escaped capture by a clever ruse. Sir John 
MUNRO was a man of Falstaffian proportions. When the officer in 
command of the military burst into Sir John's apartment in search of 
Mr. MACKILLICAN, Sir John pleaded indisposition, and on that ground 
begged to be excused his inability to rise from his chair. The soldiers 
retired without taking the liberty of disarranging the ample skirts of 
the Baronet's dressing-gown, and consequently without discovering 
that the Reverend object of their search was concealed beneath Sir 
John's robes. 

There are many stories regarding the MUNROS printed in Alexander 
MACKENZIE'S History of the Munros. He was an excellent story- 
teller and gathered his matter from Dr. AIRD and many of the old 
people, but he was a poor genealogist. An instance of his carelessness 
and want of grasp of genealogy appears in his History of the Chisholms 
regarding the relationship of Sir Kenneth MACKENZIE W. of Coul and 
his first wife, and also (in the same History} he put in an Angus 
CHISHOLM who never existed; he never looked at the original deed, 
but only at the index. The index gives the name as Angus\ the 
deed itself is about an Alexander CHISHOLM; consequently in the 
History of the Chisholms^ in the direct line of descent, there is an 
Angus CHISHOLM of Comar given who did not exist.

JENNER of Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. William JENNER of Cains- 
ford (Kempsford ?), co. Gloucester, had a daughter, Edith, married to James 
VAULX, a physician of Marston Maisey, co. Wilts. She died in 1617 leaving 
issue; see mural monument in church of Meysey Hampton and the Heralds' 
Visitation of 1623.

there is the birth of Katheren, daughter of Robert and Amy JENNER 21 May

the younger, son of John JENNER the elder, he leaves the presentation of a minis- 
ter to Marston Meysie. The manor of Widhill was apparently given to John 
JENNER the younger prior to the will, and was leased to Henry OATRIDGE until 

John JENNER would come of age. 


KEYES (see I, 196). Reginald KEYES, I have assumed to be a younger son 
of Richard KEYS or KEYES of Brockley and St. Radegund's, both in Kent, who 
was probably so named after his uncle Sir Reginald SCOTT. 

Since my communication at the above reference I have found his marriage at 

" Reynold KEYS and Joyce MEYNEY 25 Jan?. 1570," and at Hythe his burial: 
"Mr. Reignold KEYES was buried 10 Dec. 1592." 

In the Birchington Parish Registers (F. A. CRISP, 1899) there are two children, 
daughters, of Rainold KEIS, baptised there in 1576 and 1578. One died in

infancy and was buried 8 Jan. 1576/7. He may have had a son Edward, 
whose children to the number of six were baptised in Hythe Church from 1624 
to 1639. 

Reynolde KEYES held a command under his kinsman Sir Thomas SCOTT in the 
Forces raised to resist the Spanish invasion in 1588. 



WILDE: PELL ATT (see II, 116). In this pedigree of the family of 
WILDE or WILD there is mention of the marriage of Maria Esther WILDE, to 
Mill PELLATT. It may be of interest to supplement this as follows: 

Mill PELLATT, a London merchant, third son of Apsley PELLATT and his wife 
Mary, daughter of Stephen MABERLY, came of a family of good position, resi- 
dent formany generations at Steyning in Sussex. (Sussex Archaeological Collections, 
vols. 38 and 39.) He was born 14 Mar. 1795, and died 19 December 1863. 
Married 28 July 1817, Maria Esther (born n July 1793; died 9 December 
1864) daughter of Thomas WILDE and his wife Sarah JONES, and had issue, ten 
children, of whom the fourth son, Henry PELLATT, born 25 February 1830, went 
to Canada and was resident many years in Toronto, where he died in 1909. He 
married 9 May 1854, Emma Mary HOLLAND, and had issue three sons and three 
daughters, of whom the eldest son is Sir Henry Mill PELLATT, K.C.V.O., born 
6 January 1859, Honorary A.D.C. to the Governor General, Colonel Com- 
manding the 2nd Regiment the Queen's Own Rifles of Canada, a battalion of 
which Regiment went to England under his command at his personal cost in 
1910, for manoeuvres and training with the Imperial Troops. He commanded 
the Canadian Contingent sent to England for the Coronation of King Edward 
VII; he is a Lay Canon of St. Alban's Cathedral; member of Corporation of 
Trinity College, Toronto, a Trustee of the Toronto General Hospital, etc., etc. 
Sir Henry Mill PELLATT married 15 June 1882 Mary, daughter and only child 
of Robert DODGSON, and has issue one son, Reginald, born 30 June 1885, Cap- 
tain in the above Regiment.

It will be observed from these entries that my great-grandfather, Henry DALE, 
was not a twin, as stated on page 12. The error arose through his giving a 
fictitious age in 1802, when admitted to the old Lyon Lodge of Freemasons in 
Whitby. Furthermore, I think his father had only two (not three) wives.

EMINENCE AND HEREDITY. In the Nineteenth Century and After 
for May, Mr. and Mrs. W. C. D. WHETHAM suggest that the class distinction 
and segregation of type which exist among us and in all civilised races have a real 
evolutionary meaning that social association and like-to-like mating secure 
specialisation and the development of the inherent abilities of mankind. " Whether 
it would be possible or even desirable to join families of constant emotional and 
artistic gifts is a very difficult problem. We may well question whether the balance 
of such wayward and elusive talents and perceptions be not too subtle for any sys- 
tematic creation. But it is clear that, by the habit of association and the custom of 
inter-marriage among families of similar type, social conditions can be established 
and maintained by which certain sorts of ability, depending on a combination of 
character and intellect, can be brought into existence and made available for 
national purposes in constant and regular succession." One imagines that the 
reason most people marry near their own class is that it is distinctly uncomfort- 
able to marry far out of it. The old rule was for men to move a step up by 
marriage; women a step down. 

CLASS HATRED. A correspondent ot wide experience, writing to The 
Spectator , thinks that the question of how far "class" exists is one to which the 
answer would be probably very surprising. " The criterion of birth is being 
gradually rejected; the criterion of money does not allow of division into 
classes, as most people think; the criterion of intellect is really hardly recog- 
nised; the criterion of moral worth does not exist." Amongst men, we think, 
it is merely a question of mutual interest, esteem and agreement. He continues, 
" If I say that, among other things, I have been a milk-carrier, an engineering 
pupil, a university student, and have worn the King's uniform, I may be allowed 
to feel that I have met members of most 'classes.' I have seen tyranny and 


cruelty, to say nothing of blatant self-opinionativeness among the working 
classes; I have heard a King's consideration for 'popular' feeling adversely 
criticised by a retired tradesman; I have met students whose blood has risen at 
the word 'Royal'; I have seen university men almost trembling at the beck and 
call of their academic inferiors; I have seen professional dignity supported by 
'sweating' worthy of the East End; I have seen spirituality in the Army." 

GENIUS AND STATURE. Writing also to The Speflator, Mr. T. C. 
HORSFALL says that it has been ascertained by the careful examination of school 
children in Russia, in the United States, and in Germany, that there is a close 
connection between cleverness in children and their height and weight, and that 
the rule that the heavier and taller children of each age have higher places holds 
good through all schools. The decision, he says, as to whether its children 
shall be well grown and of good weight, or short and light, rests in great 
measure with the Board of Education and our other educational authorities. 

Monday to Friday, 24th to 28th April, Messrs. SOTHEBY sold a further portion 
of this wonderful collection. There were several Cartularies, unknown to 
TANNER and DUGDALE, of English and foreign Religious Houses, and much, 
of course, of genealogical and biographical interest. Two volumes of the col- 
lection of Sir William DUGDALE went to Mr. QUARITCH for 122. We do 
not altogether share the generally expressed opinion that such manuscripts 
should be all stored away in public libraries. It is better that the originals 
should be studied, used, enjoyed and passed from hand to hand, but we think that 
the information they contain should be preserved in print. Let our museums 
cease to buy, and spend the money instead in printing, cataloguing and indexing; 
they are crammed already with material more or less inaccessible, and which is, 
in consequence, imperfectly studied, used or understood.

Watton, printed in Mr. PHILLIMORE'S series, vol. II., have been indexed in

to whether any particular names occur in them.

This is in continuation of a scheme of publication last noticed on page 64,

the children of Sir Robert JASON, the sixth and last Baronet, who died in 1738. 
From Frances, (daughter of Sir Robert) who married John Stanford PERROTT 
in 1727, the descent is continued to the author's children, in such full detail

The Pedigree Register 

SEPTEMBER 1911] [VoL. II, No. 18. 


Dr. GIBSON (Bishop of Lincoln) to Dr. CHARLETT. 

"Bugden, Aug. 13, 1720. 

The more things are entered in the Registers the better, and par- 
ticularly of the kinds which you speak of in your letter; but as the 
Canon considers it no further than a Register of Marriages, Xtnings 
and Burials, we can enjoin no other entries. 

In the course of my parochial visitation in Surrey, it was one special 
part of my care, to see that the registers were duly kept in all respects; 
the titles to estates ofttimes depending on them, besides many other 
incidental conveniences in the course of men's lives, and it being so 
very reproachful to the clergy when Registers are exhibited in the 
Courts of Law, with the slovenly figure and entries which we see in 
so many parishes: besides that it may be a question whether they are 
any evidence at all, unless it appear that they have been kept and 
managed as the Canon directs." HEARNE'S Collections. 

An essential quality in the intellectual outfit of the pedigree com- 
piler is the power of discriminating between good and bad evidence. 
The sum of the possible errors in a pedigree is perhaps equalled by 
the sum of the statements contained therein, and as these statements 
have to be collected from various documentary sources, the reliability 
of the said sources and their possible and probable errors must be 
considered by the searcher, who must be conversant with the draw- 
backs and frailties inherent in each. 

That source of detail, the Parish Register, with its modern continu- 
ation, the registers controlled by the Registrar-General, is subject, 
perhaps more acutely than any other official record, to all those errors, 
both designed and accidental, which afflict human works. 

To put it graphically, and in a form we all understand, the genea- 
logy of untruth is here stated : 

Error = Register.

The compiler will welcome additions to and corrections of above 
pedigree, dates of birth not accurately known, dates of death not yet 
required, as every known member of the family is still living. N.B. 
No reward offered for information. 

To begin with, our oldest registers (ante 1603) are copies. The 
original injunction in 1538 ordered that the "curate" of every parish 
should on every Sunday take forth the register book and enter up the 
baptisms, burials, and weddings which had taken place during the 
preceding week, in the presence of the churchwardens: therefore if 
this injunction were carried out the entries were made either from 
memory or from notes, and were consequently subject to those errors 
and omissions which are the lot of all delayed undertakings. These 
early registers were on paper, and with their possibly imperfect or 
erroneous entries were transcribed on parchment in obedience to the 
canon of 1597: "Because wee wolde have regesters to be faithfully 
kepte . . . lett the names whiche are written every weeke in these 
bookes be reade openly and plainely by the mynister eu'y saboethe day 
. . . the day and monethe beinge seu'ally named in w ch they were 
p'formed and done," etc. This canon was emphasized in 1603 by 
the yo th canon which again ordered the old paper books to be copied 
on parchment "especially since the beginning of the reign of the late 
Queen." The last words seem to indicate some distrust of the earlier 
entries or a deficient appreciation of their worth. The canons, how- 
ever, show a strong appreciation of the value of registration and give 
minute and exact instructions for the avoidance of error. The direc- 
tion that the entries of the previous week were to be read publickly 
by the "mynister" every Sunday was an excellent check on error of 
every description. In those rare instances where the original paper 
book and the parchment copy are both existing, a comparison reveals 
condensations, omissions, and other faults of the copyist. 

At Aston Abbotts, Bucks, both paper book and parchment book 
are preserved. The following sample entries from the paper book 
have, within brackets, the words omitted in the parchment copy: 

1592. Will'm VYNCHER [FINCHER], [of Aston Abbotts, wydower] 
& Margrett BETTAM [of Ashendon, wydow] maryed the 
27 th . day of Marche. 

1574. Agnes [Alice ut puto] daughter of Robert VYNCHER 
bap. 6 Feb. 

Out of 360 entries in the paper book, the copyist has entirely 
omitted three in the parchment copy, and has made thirty-four 


variations in the transcript. Most of these variations are trivial 
and do not affect the truth of the entry, but some consist in omitting 
valuable detail as is shown in the samples quoted. 

In Haslemere register the entries before 1627 are copied from an 
"old booke" which was apparently kept in an irregular manner, and 
many registers commence with a statement that they are copies: e.g. 
Beer Hackett, Penrith, Pitchford, S. Nicholas, Ipswich, etc. Westbury 
(Bucks), is a copy of a copy; Thornton (Bucks), begins by stating it 
is a "coppie extracted out of the Regesterie of the Archdeacon of 
Buckingham," and therefore may be a copy of a copy of a copy of a 
copy! The last is probably an extreme instance of recopying and is 
in print from a transcript made by the writer (a paineful and careful 
scribe), therefore the printed book represents a fifth or sixth re-copy- 
ing. Thornton is a small register; begins in 1562, and has added 
interest from the fact that a cabman-claimant to the extinct TYRRELL 
baronetcy and the Thornton estate accuses the said register of imper- 
fection: i.e. hiatus of several leaves caused by the nefarious abstraction 
of same by an unlawful (?) possessor during the last century, who 
desired to destroy evidence of claimant's descent. (Burton Evening 
Gazette^ 18 Aug. 1904.) 

So much for the copy and the copyist; now for the original errors 
in the original draft. The system of entering up from notes or recol- 
lection has never died out, and never will as long as carelessness, 
procrastination and forgetfulness are inherent in human nature. The 
writer has found undestroyed rough notes on scraps of paper at Fenny 
Stratford, Bethnal Green, etc. At the Committee of 1833 the parish 
clerk of the last named parish deposed that his rough notes of mar- 
riages, burials, etc., were posted once a month; probably an under- 
statement. In The Pedigree Register of March 1911 (p. 118) is an 
example of the rough notes of a churchwarden of the late 1 8th century. 
Such a method of recording is self-condemned. Omission to register 
may be accidental and arise from procrastination or sheer negligence; 
the writer has several times during the last few years found in modern 
church registers burial certificates, etc., between the leaves, and no 
entry, and knows of forgotten baptisms. Wilful omission is not 
unknown: e.g. "Tunstall, Kent. 1557. From henceforward I omit the 
POTTMANS." In the i8th century, when there was, at times, a tax on 
the entries, registration was sometimes neglected with the object of 
avoiding the tax. 

Epidemics, plague especially, causing much sickness and death, 
often demoralized all social routine, and omission to register at such 
times must have been common: e.g. Middleton St. George, in 1645-7, 


has several entries from "a note of such as died in tyme of the sicknes 
forgotten to be sett downe in their proper place." During 1665 the 
London plague-pits received thousands of unregistered corpses; many 
a genealogy must have been carried back, in London, to this time 

and then impassable gulf; whole families were wiped out, leaving 

no trace in written record. 

Some registers contain evidence of the intrinsic untrustworthiness 
of part of their contents, in the written criticism of some stricter or 
reforming custodian. 

Pitchford, Salop, in 1800, contains a long entry of the "admission 
to the Church" of Geo. Ottley SMITH, who was baptized in Wood- 
church in 1799, but not entered in the register, because it was not the 
custom to enter private baptisms until the infant was brought to 
church. As private baptism was very common, many must have 
escaped registration. 

Upton in Overchurch, begins 1762, with "As there has been no 
regular register kept since 1738, y e following list is taken from the 
records of private families"; then follows a page of details from half 
a dozen families which, having been specially collected, are likely to 
be accurate. 

Smethcote, Salop. This register is so mixed that it is "chaos": in 
1767 is written "This is very puzzling," etc. "This register is quite 
foolish; Bad work indeed. This is the most ill contrived Register 
that is in England or Wales," etc. Then in another place: "the late 
Rector having neglected to register from 1759 to 1777, I, now Curate, 
have in 1792, by direction of the Bishop collected the following, "etc. 
Then follow several pages of details divided into sections, each section 
headed by a statement as to the origin of the information: e.g. "This 
is copied from M r . ROGERS' family Bible," etc. At the end of this 
collection is the statement that it was produced before a bench of 
Justices and verified upon oath by the Curate. It would be impos- 
sible to deny the veracity and credit of these entries, after all the care 
and precaution taken. 

Battlefield, Salop, 1749. "The old Register was in Paper and very 
ill wrote and kept in some places, therefore it is transcribed into this 
by me Leonard HOTCHKIS, Curate." 

Selattyn, Salop, 1747. "John ELLIS, late Clerk, well qualified for 
his office in every respect, keeping this Register during his long 
indisposition, and at last great weakness, must have omitted here 


some names." This is at once evidence of the trustworthiness of 
most of the Clerk's recording and the misplaced indulgence which 
allows a man to continue in responsible office when no longer fit for 
his duty. When the keeping of so many registers was left to the 
Parish Clerk in disregard of the canon ordering the "curate" to per- 
form the duty, we may feel thankful that so much was done, and 
survives as is the case ; for the clerk was more often than not an 
illiterate man. After all, total omission is less to be regretted than 
doubtful statements. Ignorance is preferable to error : the first 
stimulates our energies ; the second, when we are unconscious of it, 
leaves us satisfied. Clerical errors are certain to be common always, 
but were commoner in the past owing to the illiteracy of the parish 
clerks whose untutored minds were given to phonetic renderings of 
unfamiliar sounds. In most of this class of error, perhaps, no very 
great uncertainty is caused; where we find such variations as GOWER, 
GORE, GOOR, GOAR, all in the same book, we know that the same 
name is intended; similarly SEER, SERE, SEAR, will not cause confusion. 
Francis and Frances were apparently interchangeable in the sixteenth 
century, and the uncertain use of these forms may cause trouble. 

Errors of fact or substance are the most serious of all; in some 
instances it is difficult to account for them, when there is no doubt of 
their inadvertency, e.g. Bisham. "The W'shipfull M r . Thomas 
HOBBEY, Knight, bur. 3 Sep. 1565." 

The name is usually spelled HOBY; Sir Thomas was ambassador to 
France and died in Paris in 1566, being brought home for burial 
(D.N.B.). The difference in date is easily verified from other records. 

St. Alban's, Worcester. James ANDERSON married in 1739. A 
note appended to the entry states that the man applied at a later date 
for a certificate of his marriage, and said that the clerk had " mistook 
his name, that it shou'd be wrote HENDERSON." Had a descendant 
applied after a lapse of years no entry could have been identified as 
referring to his ancestor. 

A common name in the Meon district (Hants) was spelled ERAKER, 
name sometimes RALEGH and sometimes RAWLEY. 

At Yately (Hants) is written, "The Rev. M r Thomas having 
almost wholly neglected to register from the year 1710 to 1720, to 
supply the deficiency the Minister and Churchwardens have collected 
what intelligence they could from the memoirs of families in the 
parish (public notice being given of that effect in the church) in order 
to have the same recorded in the Parish Register." 


In the Hampshire Registers at least a dozen instances similar to the 
last are recorded. One parson seems to make a joke of his own 
carelessness: BOLDRE, late in 1646, he notes that on the sixteenth of 
last March "I married John NESCIO and Anne of ye Isle of Wight," 
and on 26 October "Thomas CARD married Aimey ignoro of Bewly." 

The Incumbent of Deane (Hants) writes in 1766: "I never could 
prevail with the Squire of the parish, John HARWOOD, to purchase a 
register-book until I had been Rector of this parish for eight 
years," etc. 

The great deficiency in registers occurred during the period 

The elected registers of 1655, whose selection and appointment is 
entered in so many register-books, may or may not have been an 
improvement on their predecessors "curates" (i.e. incumbents): 
certainly some books are kept well after this, but many were entirely 
neglected and registration stopped. At their restoration many clergy- 
men entered up such information as they could gather. Where this 
was done the entries may be regarded as correct, because they would 
be supplied by heads of families: e.g. Bradley Green (Worcester), 
begin in 1660 with the notice that there had been no registration 
since the death of John BAKER, clerk, "who died in the beginning of 
the warres"; then follows a list of entries collected by M r . Tho s . 
HUNT and comprising information since 1645, cme fty relating to his 
own family. 

As the "register" was paid I2d. for each marriage entry and 4d. 
for each birth and burial, we may suppose that this charge caused 
some evasion, apart from the abstinence of political factions. 

The writer has examined fifty-one parish registers which have 
entries before 1640. Of these, twenty-six have no deficiency during 
1640-60: in these the baptisms are entered, only one uses the term 
born ; six mention the election of the "register. " The remaining twenty- 
five are more or less imperfect, and all show definite indications of 
rebel influence. Thirteen possess an hiatus of ten years or more; 
the term "born" displaces "baptism" in the minority only, and the 
inference is that though the successful rebels were able to stop church 
registration (more or less) they were not strong enough to impose 
their own system on an unwilling and loyalist people. Shipton has a 
note that the book was taken away by soldiers. Rowington notes 
the ejection and restoration of its vicar. Moreton Corbet notes the 
imperfect registration by an intruder, etc., etc. 


The repetition of a baptismal name was not uncommon before 
A.D. 1800, and is not unknown now; the practice may cause error and 
its possibility should be borne in mind. GIBBON, who was the eldest 
of six sons, writes in his Autobiography, " so feeble was my constitu- 
tion, so precarious my life, that, in the baptism of each of my brothers, 
my father's prudence successively repeated my Christian name of 
Edward, that, in case of the departure of the eldest son, this 
patronymic appellation might be still perpetuated in the family." 
This practice has "worked" profitably in the case of more than one 
claimant for the out-door relief euphemistically styled "old-age- 

Doubtful identity may be caused by the assumption of an extra 
name in after life: the composer of "Rule Britannia" was baptized 
in 1710 by the name of Thomas; he added Augustine, and was 
known as Thomas Augustine ARNE. 

Interpolations, obvious, are found in every register, and should be 

All the causes and incentives to error in registration act in the 
twentieth century with as much strength as in former times; perhaps 
intentional error is commoner now than then. In cases of births, 
sometimes, parents do not register in order to escape vaccination, or 
in order that their own whereabouts may not be traced. Others, 
when registering, suppress or distort facts, e.g. representing the parents 
of a bastard infant as married. There is no means of checking the 
assumption of an alias. In the early years of civil registration, omis- 
sion to register births was not uncommon because many people 
objected to the system and ignored it; the writer knows several old 
people now living whose births were not registered, but whose bap- 
tisms were. Tramps, bargees, caravan-dwellers, and nomads usually 
fail to register births. 

Even in the death register, occasional fraud crops up; registry of 
a bogus death, followed by either no burial, or the interment of a 
dummy, has taken place more often than is supposed. These cases 
are naturally known only to the few (the writer knows of one), as 
they mostly escape public enquiry. 

Doubtless the great majority of register entries, both ecclesiastical 
and civil, is truth and fact; it is the minority which is suspect. In 
spite of the care and inspection of Somerset House, the civil regis- 
trar, being human, is not free from error, and in some instances, rare, 
is guilty of worse than carelessness. Some years ago the writer knew 


of one registrar, now dead, who was in the habit of increasing his 
quarterly account by inserting bogus entries. Probably in this case 
no great harm was done, but vital statistics may have received a 
shock. Another registrar, also dead, would ask particulars of an 
informant and give a certificate, filling in the entry subsequently, 
sometimes after an interval of two days, and then invent the details 
he had either forgotten or failed to take. 

A recently published book, Stranger than Fiction, contains a collec- 
tion of weird narratives. One relates to mysterious noises occurring 
in the wall of an old house. When necessary repairs caused the wall 
to be broken into, the long-lost register-book of the parish was found 
concealed therein! Upon the removal of the book the disturbing 
noises ceased. The present writer wrote to the author of the book 
asking for particulars of parish, date, etc., and received a courteous 
answer, regretting the circumstances still forbade the publication of 
details, but hinting that the event happened in Wales within the last 
ten years. In spite of this example of ghostly interest in registers, 
we need not seriously reckon with occult influence when debating the 
reliability of a parish register.

All is not gold that glitters, and all is not gospel truth which is 
printed even when it is a pedigree from a visitation of His Majesty's 
Officers of Arms. 

In offering the following two parallel pedigrees one (A) from the 
42nd volume of the Harleian Society's Publications, the other (B) 
from my own researches, I do not in the least wish to depreciate the 
valuable work which the Harleian Society has done, and is still doing 
in bringing genealogical information before the public. It is labouring 
under two disabilities, the one unavoidable, the other, I trust, one 
which may at no distant date be mended. 

The former disability is the fallibility of the old Heralds. This is 
not peculiar to those who visited Kent, as I know of one pedigree in 
the Visitation of Lancaster of 1664, where the head of the family, who 
was then alive, was made the son of his eldest brother (SOUTHWORTH 
of Samlesbury). This, of course, assuming that the Chetham Society's 
copy of the visitation in question is correct. 

The other disability of the Harleian and similar Societies is that 
they cannot obtain access to the original visitation records. The 
Officers of Arms of England are, I understand, almost entirely de- 
pendent on fees for their livelihood, and it is, therefore, obviously 
against the policy of such a body to publish any official pedigrees, 
and so far cut off the stream of their water of life. Were the Officers 
of Arms of England made government officials, as are those of Ireland 
and Scotland, and given reasonable salaries, and all fees sent direct 
into His Majesty's Treasury, the public, of course, would have to pay 
for such salaries, but after the rule of small profits and quick returns, 
the general public would in the long run gain considerably. If there is 
any doubt on the matter, the Irish Estimates will show that the Office 
of Arms, Dublin Castle, has regularly returned a balance in favour of 
the Treasury ever since that office has been run on government lines. 

The only comment I think I need make on the parallel pedigrees 
is that clearly to show the parallel "Edw. TILGHMAN de Snodland fil. 
et haeres," who married, first, Miss BREWER and, second, Susanna 
WHETTENHALL, in the Harleian Society's pedigree, is probably my 
"William TILGHMAN of Snodland, co. Kent, gent . . . Testament dat. 
9, Will dat. 17 Feb. 1593; prov. 24 Apr. 1594." "Francis TILGH- 
MAN iam superstes hoc anno 1619" is the son of Edward the son of 
William above-mentioned. This Edward (omitted in the Herald's 
pedigree) died between 1610 and 1612.

John de LOUGHTON is presumed to have been the founder of the 
Church of Loughton, Bucks, to which he presented his clerk in 
1218. William de LOUGHTON and Agnes his wife gave in the same 
year to Snelshall Priory a yard-land, abutting on Watling Street and 
lying in Little Loughton. 

In 1270 a fine was levied between John, son of John de LOUGHTON, 
Querent, and John de LOUGHTON, Impedient, of lands and rents in 
Great Loughton and of the Advowson of the Church to the use of 
John, son of John. 

In 1294 John de LOUGHTON granted his capital mansion, with all 
the appendages of a manor, to Ivo de LOUGHTON his brother and 
Cecilia the daughter of Robert de Stoke Hamond, whom Ivo seems 
to have married. 

In 1329 a fine was levied between Thomas de LOUGHTON and 
Elizabeth his wife, and John HUTCHAM, Chaplain, to the use of John, 
who granted the same to Thomas and Elizabeth for life; with re- 
mainder to Thomas son of Thomas and the heirs of his body; 
remainder to William, brother of Thomas, son of Thomas and the 
heirs of his body; remainder to Robert, brother of William, and the 
heirs of his body. 

Bartholomew de LOUGHTON was instituted Rector of Little Lough- 
ton January 4, 1305, and William de LOUGHTON March 9, 1321, on 
the presentation of Thomas de LOUGHTON. 

William de LOUGHTON was elected Prior of Bradwell Abbey, 
Bletchley, July 1336, and died in 1349. 

John LOUGHTON of Kimble, Bucks, is mentioned in 1438 as a 
party in a fine passed between members of the HAMPDEN family and 

In 1460 George de LOUGHTON and Arnethan his wife passed a fine 
of the Manor of Loughton Parva, in order to convey it to a purchaser. 

The foregoing is gleaned from LIPSCOMB'S History of Bucks 

The family is next traced to Uxbridge. At Hillingdon the follow- 
ing references are found: 

1561, Jan. 12. Laurence LOUGHTON and Joan ASTLE, widow, married.

1575, Jan. 25. Robert LOUGHTON and Margaret HUTCHING, married. 
1607, Nov. 8. John LOUGHTON and Alice GOODE, married. 
1633, May 27. Robert LOUGHTON and Isabel SAIE, married. 

1639, May i. Roger LOUGHTON and Ellin SMITH, married. 

1640, June 24. William LOUGHTON and Jane FINER, married. 
1659, Nov. 9. John LOUGHTON and Mary MARTIN, married.

1713, April. William LOUGHTON and Dorothy HULL married at 
St James, Piccadilly. 

1735, July i. John, son of John and Mary LOUGHTON, baptised. 

1737, Oct. 7. Hannah, daughter of John and Mary LOUGHTON, 

1791, Oct. 22. John LOUGHTON, buried. 

At Hayes, Middlesex, occurred the following marriage: 
1721, Nov. 15. John LOUGHTON and Mary SHAW, 

John and Mary LOUGHTON of Iver and St. Bartholomew-the-Great, 
London, had surviving issue two daughters: Elizabeth, who married 
Robert JONES of London, and Hannah, named above, who married in

The sketch pedigree below, illustrating the Chancery suit of 
LOADER v. LOADER (Chanc. Proc. "before 1714," Whlttington 533), 
is a good example of the kind of information to be got from a family 
suit, and, in this case, of the changes of residence of the elder line. 
The plaintiff, a Clerkenwell tailor, puts in a title to certain mes- 
suages in Nuneaton (tenants of these named in the plea). The 
last person actually seised of the premises was Mary LOADER, but as she 
died an infant and without issue, the plaintiff claims as cousin and next 
heir. The plea is contested by Elizabeth and Mary LOADER, 
respectively the mother and grandmother of the last owner, and the 
defendants are associated with CLARE and ILIFFE (see pedigree), 
together with one Roger STYAN and Anthony TROTMAN. (Date of 
suit 26 July, 1698.)

Anne GORDON, Mrs. William FORBES, had two sisters: Grizel, wife 
of D. SANDERSON in Cromarty, and Janet, widow, in 1769, of A. 
SUTHERLAND of Torbreck. 

William FORBES, tacksman of Culmailie, was gardener at Dunrobin 
Castle, and seems to have been able to bring his children up well. 
They were (besides Anne, Mrs. Harry ROBERTSON) William FORBES, 
attorney-at-law in Barbadoes; died 9 February 1789, who had a son 
at Eton; George FORBES, a planter in Tobago, married Miss CAMP- 
BELL of Campbellstown; James FORBES; Duncan FORBES, died in the 
West Indies; and Elizabeth FORBES, married, 16 November 1758, to 
the Revd. George McCuLLocK, minister of Loth 1756-1800. SAGE 
in his Mem. Dom. says, "the widow and daughters of Mr. McCuLLOCK, 
formerly minister of Loth, lived at Kilmote when I was at Loth. The 
old lady was very feeble, very good natured, very much addicted to 
tea, and exhibited all the loquacity incident to narrative old age. Her 
daughter Bell, equally loquacious, and, although considerably advanced 
in years, had lost none of her tact in holding fast by one side of an 
argument. Her sister Anne was an obsequious and zealous assentor 
to any side of an argument which to her appeared to be the strongest." 
Mrs. McCuLLOCK, who died 5 April 1814, had also two sons, Mr. 
William, and George, a surgeon in the Berwickshire Militia. 

Culmailie was a small house or cottage near Dunrobin Castle, and 
is believed to be still standing. 

The TINNE family came from Holland. Philip Frederic TINNE of 
Demerara, who drew up the articles by which British Guiana was 
ceded to the English, and who had been Secretary to the Dutch 
Ambassador at the Court of St. James, was descended from Johan 
Christoffel TINNE of The Hague, born at Blankenburgh, and his wife 
(married at The Hague 3 January 1683) Margriet van GELSKERKEN, 
bapt. at The Hague 16 January 1661, daughter of Harman van 
GELSKERKEN and Anna van RENTEL his wife, married 1649. William 
HARRISON, of 92 Westbourne Terrace, was the son of William 
HARRISON, known as Justice HARRISON, who died 1812, who was son 
of John HARRISON, schoolmaster at Hoghton Tower, Lancashire, son 
of Richard HARRISON of Bankfield, yeoman. Nothing is known of 
the earlier history of the GORDON and FORBES families, and any infor- 
mation regarding them will be most welcome to 


oelsey, bussex. 





Readers of The Pedigree Register will remember that in September 1910 
an article appeared under the heading of "Proposals for a Society of Genealogists." 
It is with pleasure that we now inform them that the Society then contemplated 
has been successfully formed, and that this Journal has been appointed its official 
organ. In every future number we shall therefore be able to include a quarterly 
report of the Society's progress.

In the autumn of 1910 a preliminary circular was issued setting forth the 
desirability of forming a Society which would devote its energies and funds 
more to collecting and indexing genealogical and topographical data than to 
printing such matter. It was, and is, strongly felt by all experienced genealo- 
gists that, though the Societies publishing annual volumes of Transactions are 
doing excellent work, the value of their work in a manner decreases with every 
volume they issue, for there are already more such volumes in existence than 
the most energetic searcher can ever hope to consult, even should he be one of 
the fortunate few who possess the key or have the time and opportunity for 
making a thorough investigation of these interesting but frequently costly 
volumes of Transactions, etc. 

A body of fifty representative genealogists immediately signified their hearty 
approval of the scheme outlined in the circular, and resolved to bring it to 
maturity. At their expense the Society was duly incorporated, with licence of 


the Board of Trade, on the 8th May, 1911, as an "Association not for profit," 
limited by guarantee (each member's liability, in the case of the winding-up of 
the Society, being limited to 2) under the Companies (Consolidation) Act, 1908. 

These fifty " Founders and Fellows," under the presidency of the Marquess 
of Tweeddale, appointed eleven of their number to form an Executive Commit- 
tee, on which the labour of organization has fallen. 

A pamphlet of about forty pages describing in detail the scope of the Society 
has been issued by the Executive Committee, and copies of it (free of charge) 
may be had on application to the Hon. Secretary. 

At the first general meeting, held on the 29th June at Prince Henry's Room, 
Fleet Street, London, the Chairman (Mr. William BRADBROOK, M.R.C.S., 
F.S.G.) was able to announce that an income of more than ^200 was assured 
for the first year's working. At the end of this report a complete list of 
Founders, Fellows, Members and Associates, as on the I5th August, 1911, is 

One of the chief objects of the Society is to form a Reference Library of 
printed books, chart pedigrees, manuscripts, etc., and many gifts have been re- 
ceived from members of the Society and others towards this purpose. The 
Annual Report for 1912 will contain a complete list of the Society's collections 
with the donor's name against each item. 

The Reference Library will also contain a great Consolidated Index to re- 
cords of various kinds, and many of the members of the Society are already hard 
at work preparing slips for inclusion in this Index, which will be so arranged 
that it is always capable of having further material added to it. 

This and all other work of the Society is carried on by means of Sub-Com- 
mittees. Of these there are fourteen in course of formation and others are con- 
templated. Three Sub-Committees are actively at work, viz. those on the " Con- 
solidated Index," on " Parish Registers" and on "Family Associations." A full 
account of the fourteen Sub-Committees will be found in the pamphlet to which 
reference has already been made. 

Honorary appointments are open to Fellows and Members to serve on any of 
the Committees, or act as Local Secretaries for their respective counties, towns, 
parishes or districts. Those interested in the branches of research with which 
the Sub-Committees respectively deal are recommended to apply for election to 
them, that they may at least lend aid with their counsel and advice if not able 
to give active assistance. Inquirers desiring special information as to, for exam- 
ple, Heraldry, Pedigrees already compiled, Monumental Inscriptions, Parish 
Registers, Marriage Licences, School and other Registers, Migration and Change 
of Residence, Local Records, will apply to the Hon. Secretary of the Sub- 
Committee concerned. 

As an example of the work being undertaken by these Committees, it may be 
mentioned that the Committee on the Consolidated Index, having obtained official 
permission to index will-registers at Somerset House, has six volunteers engaged 
on the period 1790 to 1800 in the Prerogative Court, that being the first period 
the Committee wishes to see indexed. The length of time the work will take 
will naturally depend upon the number of those engaged on it, but of the urgent 
need of its being taken in hand there can be no dispute. 


Another Committee, i.e. that on Parish Registers, has a body of voluntary 
helpers working on the printed and manuscript parish registers of Great Britain. 
Each entry is being copied on a separate slip, and these will be placed alphabeti- 
cally in the great Consolidated Index. More than a hundred parishes are 
already having or have had their registers dissected in this manner for the 
benefit of the Society's members. 

It will be seen that with over a dozen Sub-Committees thus pouring index slips 
into the great Consolidated Index, it is only a question of a short time before that 
Index will supply at a glance more information about any given British family 
than might be obtained in twelve months' searching through the national records. 

Another object of the Society is to endeavour to secure by legislation and 
other lawful means the preservation of records likely to be of service or interest, 
whether the same be public records or documents in private possession, and par- 
ticularly by urging upon the possessors or custodians of such records the necessity 
or expediency of arranging, cataloguing, calendaring and indexing them, and 
taking reasonable steps to ensure their protection from fire, injury or theft, and 
to allow free and ready access to them. In this connection it may be noted 
that the Rev. J. L. E. HOOPPELL, F.S.G., represented the Society at the Con- 
gress of Archaeological Societies, held at Burlington House in July, and the 
Congress " again decided to ask the Government to direct that arrangements 
should be made by the authorities at Somerset House, so that access to all docu- 
ments, ecclesiastical as well as probate records, for literary study, might be 
given in the same way as at the Public Record Office." 

The Annual Subscriptions to the Society of Genealogists are as follows : 

"Fellows," elected from among the Members by the whole body of 
Fellows, Two guineas per annum. Life composition, ten guineas. 

"Members," elected by the Executive Committee, One guinea per 
annum. Life Composition, seven guineas. 

"Associates," elected by the Executive Committee, One guinea per 
annum. Cannot make Life Composition. 

"Corresponding Associates," elected by the Executive Committee, Haifa 
guinea per annum. Cannot make Life Composition. Must reside at 
least 25 miles from London. 

Fellows are entitled to receive quarterly from the Society advice of any fresh 
information having accrued respecting certain specified families and places in 
which they may be personally interested, the number of which is limited at 
present to ten. 

As an association "not for profit" (in a pecuniary sense) the Society relies 
for increase of membership upon the efforts of individual members to make its 
purpose known. If an average of only one new member be enrolled by each 
present member, the Society will be established on a sound basis. A form of 
application for membership is sent herewith.

Qtolt** Queries anb (Repfies* 

THE MAN OF FAMILY. Our friends across the water display, at least 
in the current American literature which reaches us, so little of the kindly, 
liberal spirit which animated Wendell HOLMES, that we think no apology is 
needed for reminding our readers of his remarks on "family." We are, per- 
haps, too apt to forget that this may still be the outlook of a large class of 
American people, and our estimate of the national characteristics might be 
modified accordingly. 

Other things being equal, in most relations of life I prefer a man of 

What do I mean by a man of family? Oh, I'll give you a general idea of 
what I mean. Let us give him a first-rate fit-out; it costs us nothing. 

Four or five generations of gentlemen and gentlewomen; among them a 
member of his Majesty's Council for the Province, a Governor or so, one or 
two Doctors of Divinity, a member of Congress, not later than the time of 
top-boots with tassels. 

Family portraits. The member of the Council, by Smibert. The great 
merchant-uncle, by Copley, full length, sitting in his arm-chair, in a velvet 
cap and flowered robe, with a globe by him, to show the range of his com- 
mercial transactions, and letters with large red seals lying round, one directed 
conspicuously to The Honourable, etc., etc. Great-grandmother, by the same 
artist; brown satin, lace, very fine, hands superlative; grand old lady, stiffish 
but imposing. Her mother, artist unknown; flat, angular, hanging sleeves; 
parrot on fist. A pair of Stuarts, viz.: i. A superb, full-blown mediaeval gen- 
tleman, with a fiery dash of Tory blood in his veins, tempered down with that 
of a fine old rebel grandmother, and warmed up with the best of old India 
Madeira; his face is one flame of ruddy sunshine; his ruffled shirt rushes out of 
his bosom with an impetuous generosity, as if it would drag his heart after it; 
and his smile is good for twenty thousand dollars to the Hospital, besides ample 
bequests to all relatives and dependents. 2. Lady of the same; remarkable 
cap; high waist, as in time of Empire; bust a la Josephine; wisps of curls, like 
celery-tips, at sides of forehead; complexion clear and warm, like rose cordial. 
As for the miniatures by Malbone, we don't count them in the gallery. 

Books, too, with the names of old college students in them, family names; 
you will find them at the head of their respective classes in the days when 
students took rank on the catalogue from their parent's condition. Elzevirs, 
with the Latinized appellations of youthful progenitors, and Hie liber est meus 
on the title page. A set of Hogarth's original plates. Pope, original edition, 


15 volumes, London, 1717. Barrow on the lower shelves, in folio. Tillotson 
on the upper, in a little dark platoon of octodecimos. 

Some family silver; a string of wedding and funeral rings; the arms of the 
family curiously blazoned; the same in worsted, by a maiden aunt. 

If the man of family has an old place to keep these things in, furnished with 
claw-footed chairs and black mahogany tables, and tall bevel-edged mirrors, 
and stately upright cabinets, his outfit is complete. 

No, my friends, I go (always, other things being equal) for the man who 
inherits family traditions and the cumulative humanities of at least four or five 
generations. Above all things, as a child, he should have tumbled about in 
the library. All men are afraid of books, who have not handled them from 
infancy. Do you suppose our dear didascalos over there ever read Poll Synopsis, or 
consulted Castelli Lexicon, while he was growing up to their stature? Not he; 
but virtue passed through the hem of their parchment and leather garments 
whenever he touched them, as the precious drugs sweated through the bat's 
handle in the Arabian story. I tell you he is at home wherever he smells the 
invigorating fragrance of Russian leather. No self-made man feels so. One 
may, it is true, have all the antecedents I have spoken of, and yet be a poor or 
a shabby fellow. One may have none of them, and yet be fit for councils and 
courts. Then let them change places. Our social arrangement has this great 
beauty, that its strata shift up and down as they change specific gravity, without 
being clogged by layers of prescription. But I still insist on my democratic 
liberty of choice, and I go for the man with the gallery of family portraits 
against the one with the twenty-five cent, daguerreotype, unless I find out that 
the last is the better of the two. . . . But now observe this. Money kept for 
two or three generations transforms a race, I don't mean merely in manners 
and hereditary culture, but in blood and bone. Money buys air and sunshine, 
in which children grow up more kindly, of course, than in close, back streets; 
it buys country-places to give them happy and healthy summers, good nursing, 
good doctoring, and the best cuts of beef and mutton. When the spring 
chickens come to market I beg your pardon, that is not what I was going to 
speak of. As the young females of each successive season come on, the finest 
specimens among them, other things being equal, are apt to attract those who 
can afford the expensive luxury of beauty. The physical character of the next 
generation rises in consequence. It is plain that certain families have in this 
way acquired an elevated type of face and figure, and that in a small circle of 
city connections one may sometimes find models of both sexes which one of 
the rural counties would find it hard to match from all its townships put 
together. Because there is a good deal of running down, of degeneration and 
waste of life, among the richer classes, you must not overlook the equally 
obvious fact I have just spoken of, which in one or two generations more 
will be, I think, much more patent than just now." 


Register " WooTTON," 1658, vol. ^, by William BRIGG, B.A. (14 Clifford's 
Inn, E.G.), 1911, 4-to, pp. 169. Privately printed for the Subscribers. 

Mr. BRIGG brings out another of these excellent volumes, which comprise 
abstracts of every will, and not mere selections, proved in the Principal Court 
in the year in question. The abstracts include every proper name of person 
or place, of those which happen to be mentioned in no less than 772 wills, 
and they are fully indexed. George OTTWAY of St. Olave's, co. Surrey, leaves 
bequests to certain people, and to South Moulton, Devon, Rockburne in 
Hampshire, and St. Olave's, Southwark, "as restitution made for wrong don (in 
places forgotten) in the late warrs." In two wills "Naples biscuits" are 
offered, Pecksniffian-like, as refreshment for the funeral guests. Amongst 
unusual Christian names we find Gratian, Ithiell, Achilles, Filo-Christiana, 
Prothera, Mellony, Docy, and a Samevell (Rigsby, Lines) suggestive of 
DICKENS. "Lydia LAMKIN" (Twyford, Bucks) recalls the titles of books 
dear to the childhood of our parents. To subscribers of half a guinea apiece 
these volumes should prove a particularly good investment. 

Genealogical Abstracts of PARRY Wills, proved in the Prerogative Court of Can- 
terbury down to 1810 . . ., by Lieut. -Colonel G. S. PARRY. London: George 
Sherwood, 227 Strand (by Temple Bar), 1911, 4-to, pp. 152. Price los. 6d. 

This is a work on the same plan as Register " Wootton" just noticed, but 
confined to testators and intestates of the surname PARRY, from 1488 to 1810. 
The gist of no less than 689 wills and administrations is given, together with 
complete indexes into which few could dip without finding something of value 
and interest. Col. PARRY draws attention to the fact that servants are often 
relations of testators, and that because a man is employed in trade, or is an 
ordinary seaman, it by no means follows he is not of good family. We suspect 
that deprecation of retail business "Our people were never in trade," is a 
mark by which one may certainly distinguish newcomers in the professions 
who know very little about their "people" indeed. 

The Pedigree Register 

DECEMBER 1911] [VoL. II, No. 19. 



The Prerogative Court of Canterbury at all events takes us no 
further back than 1383. Those curious for the earlier period have 
the records of the Court of Hustings and some of the provincial 
registries to fall back on to get some idea of the daily lives of the 
people. True, the legal verbiage of these ancient documents does 
not reveal much, except what may be seen, as it were, through the 
chinks of their formal setting. The time is well contrasted with 
Elizabethan and post-Reformation days, when man had found the 
instinct of self-assertion, and no doubt the later sixteenth century 
wills have more of the personal touch, the lay spirit, shall we say, of 
the egoist, than the older writings, with which this paper is more 
especially concerned. English folk as first and chiefly children of the 
Church come forth in our study of these early testaments, some 
details of which we have set forth below. 

Dr. FURNIVALL'S First Fifty Wilh in the P.C.C. is concerned only 
with those written in English. They are primarily learned excerpts, 
instances in point for philology and the history of the English tongue, 
which the antiquary reads for themselves, for their charm as for their 
learning. Perhaps, too, by this time he has forgiven the erudite tran- 
scriber's omission of the Latin wills, for there still remain for exploita- 
tion these partly untouched mines of interest and "unpegged-out claims." 
We have, at least, the priests to deal with, who all, or most of them, 
drew up their wills and testaments in the official tongue, and a yeoman 
or craftsman here and there, of worth and substance, who preferred to 
commit his dying intentions to the writing-out of the curate the 
chief trustee of his wishes regarding his own soul or his kinsfolk's 
temporal well-being. 

The whiteness of the old vellum has gone murky with the march 
of time, and the touch of, who shall say, what countless hands? The 
rough-edged and crinkled sheepskins are without odour and the gloss 
has gone with the years, but their glamour remains through all. So 
with the sand, rough forerunner of our modern blotting-paper, 
sprinkled by monkish fingers over the glistening ink, and now long 
since sunk in the crannies of the binding, though I have shaken 
out the crystals from less-used wills of a later date. Such are the 



records that lie before us, and with the qualifications noted at the 
beginning of this paper, let us concede some little dryness (of the 
wordy legal sort) in the making of these old wills. Looked-at from 
the broader view, the generalizing eye, say of history, their value may 
be quite tributary and relative (though one knows what pitfalls for the 
student generalization has) ; their occasional theology, slight and formal 
as it is in expression, but chips of scholastic moralia, mere holy pe- 
dantry; for churchmanship and devotion a catalogue of vestments and 
objects of ritual, lists of church "lights," sacred roods, high altars and 
lesser chapels, and beside the frequent mention of nuns and friars, 
seculars and sub-orders, some cousinly tributes to the testator's kins- 
folk in religion, and lay relatives with a temporal interest in church 
lands, or axes to grind in the way of ecclesiastical office. Yet what 
more characteristic sources of reference for those days ? Such con- 
temporary documents are shadowy but authentic reflections of times 
and ways mediaeval. Somebody's essence of life and final word is 
here, disguised maybe by legal and theological silver-paper. Thus 
the preamble alone of the old wills, with its humble but graceful dedi- 
cation of the writer's soul and all that is his "Deo omnipotenti Beatae 
Mariae semper virgini et omnibus sanctis " (watered-down after the 
end of Catholic rule in England to " In the name of God Amen ") is 
evidence for the first place that the Church held in men's minds. It 
is allowable to think that the " good father, affectionate husband and 
faithful friend " standard of excellence, was only a secondary point (as 
a recommendation), in the view of the departing sinner who paid these 
formal tributes to the company of Heaven.* The unsophisticated 
testator or his clerkly deputy, along with the better instructed, just 
wrote in the pious phrase all that was in his mind; and his devotion to 
the unseen host, with what subjective concept of winged angel or mist- 
clothed cherub Church art had stamped on his intelligence, was as real 
as his more material wishes in the way of bolls of wheat to church 
lights and altars, and bequests of jewelled vestments for the service of 
the sanctuary. One can appreciate this spirit, with indulgence of 
another kind for the pathetic inventories of later days, of " the kowe 
with the white spot," " Old Cherry " the mare, " ij brasse ketylls and 
a potte " and a gift of" iij stor pigges and a ewe lambe." 

It is for the student to lighten-up by what imagination he has his view 
for in conception it is the appropriateness of the particular view that 
tells of these hints and shadows of a long-gone past; though it may 

* It would seem, too, that testators had not much chance of practising those virtues, 
as, to judge by the frequent references to their children as minors, their stay on this earth 
must have been a brief one. This is a curious fact, not to be explained by the thinning 
processes of war or other causes, as the apparently early demise of testators continued 
down to even later times. 


not be given to all of us to get as near to an adequate understanding of 
mediaeval times, to such zeal and knowledge, for instance, as brighten 
up those documents of another sort, under the abstruse learning and 
kindly handling of that earnest antiquary, Dr. Augustus JESSOPP, who 
has made to live again for us and for the general reader, in some back 
pages of the Nineteenth Century, the social and ecclesiastical surround- 
ings of old village life.* 

The first thing that strikes us in these early wills then is their church 
interest. One is carried back to a time when the prosaic (alike with 
the denouement) was for the hereafter ; the consideration a post-mortem 
one, and immortality as such the business, and not the fleeting 
everyday world: mankind resting in gremio ecclesi<e y and all-pervad- 
ing mother church not only a sentinel at the three great events in life, 
but guide and protector to the individual soul in all its earthly wander- 
ings.f So, the churches, with brotherhoods, guilds and all things that 
looked to ecclesiastical guidance, come in for special mention in the 
wills of the time, with occasional, but by no means negligible references 
to books and other matters. 

I have among my papers some scores of abstracts of these early wills, 
the results of spare time put in on odd mornings at Somerset House. 
I bore my transcripts away for digestion and translation, and knocked 
out the meaning of them at home with the aid of one Ducange, his 
Dictionary of" Middling and infamous Latin." (This neat distortion, 
by the way, is the late Cardinal WISEMAN'S, and he ought to have 

But what ingenious fellows these old scholars of the cloister must 
have been; the diligent helpers of a sort of linguistic evolution, with 
their diminutives and strange inflexions, their new-coined words, 
and power of twisting the old roots ad hoc. Esperanto is nursery 
fooling to it. True, there was a big heritage for each generation of 
workers (without resorting to our modern gift of slangy compromise), 
the old language as used by the Fathers, the canon law and the com- 
mentaries on both to expound to moving generations, with daily 
examples for the devout in the word-forms of the breviary. 

* Now collected in volume form, as The Coming of the Friars, Studies by a Recluse, 
etc., etc. I do not forget the learned researches of Father GASQUET, but to Dr. JESSOPP 
we must go for charm. '* f- 

t Readers will remember wat,,this aspect of the church has been drawn out in a 
beautiful essay of J. A. FROUDE'S, evidently written before his break with the Oxford 
Movement, and the aggressive cynScisfci which shows up in his later remarks on the 
Roman system. See a paper in his Short Studies on Great Subjects, later essays of which 
contain some ruthless attacks on the Church as it was at the Reformation. 

J Dinner table-talk noted in Wilfrid WARD'S Life of Wiseman, 


From the opening lines of the will of John de WALTHAM, Bishop 
of Salisbury (1395)* we take the following passage: "The condition 
of the human race in this lower valley of tears being ever one of 
changeless fatuity, is not accounted as a fixed abiding state, forasmuch 
as being in a state of perpetual motion it continually glides on by the 
hidden and unnoticed passage of time to the end preordained to it by 
nature, and returneth not. And such as pretend that substance is of 
the nature of sense, strive for the non-existent, the prophet testi- 
fying that because man was made like unto vanity, coming up as a 
flower, he quickly withereth away, and his days pass away as a 
shadow ..." and so on. I think that is a fair rendering of the 
crabbed old lines. We recognize our prophet in the concluding 
words, and it is for the learned to say what particular scholastics they 
were who had mixed ideas about substance. Well, the sentiments 
are right enough, and straightforward, but one could wish that the 
testator had let himself go a little more. However, there was the 
business of bequests, personal and otherwise, to deal with, and so 
the rest of the will is taken up with curious references to church 
vestments and ornaments,f the gatherings presumably of a long life, 
and gifts, bestowed, no doubt, at priestly jubilees and commemora- 
tions. All of these costly goods were for churches in need of them 
(eccijs indigentibs], monasteries, friaries, and nunneries. Cecily, the 
writer's sister, comes in for ^20, a basin and a ewer of silver and a 
robe lined with fur; her husband is John MOIGNE; her son, Thomas. 
All lands of the inheritance of Joan the daughter and heiress of Robert 
GREY of Rotherfield, said Joan being under twenty-one and unmar- 
ried, to go to his nephew John de WALTHAM. The testator's sister 
Joan completes the small list of relatives, and at the end of the will 
directions are given for the setting up of inscriptions to the writer's 
father and mother. Other bequests are mainly to religious, whose 
names are stated, including donations to " my lord the King " and the 
two Archbishops. 

The will of William AYSCOUGH, another Bishop of Salisbury (1449)^ 
is interesting for its gifts of books and manuscripts to the Cathedral 
Library, including "a new ordinal according to the use of Sarum." 
What, one wonders, was " pupilla odi" a book which goes to Sir 
Thomas BIRDFORD, the latter probably a priest? Relations mentioned 
are, nephew Master Robert AYSCOGH ; nephew Mr. William AYSCOGH; 
John AYSCOGH my brother and Matilda his wife; sister Joan; 

* Register Rous, fo. 5. 

t The actual inventory of these is given in another document " acquietencia de legatis 
solutis," etc., at the end of the will, 
t Register Rous, fo. 12. 


William TENDERYNG, Esq., and Margaret his wife my niece; Katharine 
AYSCOGH, nun of Shaston; Willm AYSCOGH, judge, and Eliz. AYSCOGH 
his wife; Elizabeth AYSCOGH, nun of Synethayte and Parnell (Pet- 
ronilla) her mother; Elizabeth, daughter of my sister Elizabeth 
TURPYN; John TURPYN my nephew; nephew Cristofer AYSCOGH 
and Thomas AYSCOGH my kinsman, to his marriage. 

The will of John PHILIPP, knight (1415), is worth noting for its 
mention of some of the CHAUCERS, though whether of the poet's 
family I cannot say. They are, "Thomas CHAUCERS my brother," 
and allusion is made to the testator's mother, wife of Thomas 
CHAUCERS, evidently father of the first-named Thomas. A. long 
codicil written in Norman-French follows (a translation of which I have 
not attempted) though I have a transcript. There is a familiar look 
about the start, "Sachent touz genez moy Johan PHLIPP," but then 
come the clouds (!) with occasional glints of sound but arid detail, 
like " manoir," "apptenncez," "a ses hers males de sonn corps." 
Such things keep up one's courage, but the crux is open* to the 
first bid. 

As to Geoffrey CHAUCER, there is an interesting reference to him in 
the will of Richard SOTHEWORTH, clerk (Vicar of Steventon, Berks), 
who gives to John STOPYNDEN " quendam libru' meu' de Cant'bury 
Tales."* This was in 1417, and as the poet died in 1400 it is early 
mention of the " Tales." STOPYNDEN and his bequest still remain to 
trace perhaps the precious parchment even now reposes in one of 
our old libraries. STOPYNDEN himself is not to be found in the P.C.C. 
calendars, but bibliographers may find him interesting enough to 
search for elsewhere. SOTHEWORTH speaks of a few other books, as 
" statuta nova & Regr'm novu' cu' meliori basalardo meo huesiato " 
basalardo I take to mean "poniard" (his" best "f one, observe). An 
odd company these things, and a hint of times when cassock and 
rochet were sometimes thrown aside for a coat of mail; maybe the 
shining dirk hung on the wall by the antlers or other restful trophies 
of the field; or was the basalardo huesiato\ for home use down the 
country lanes, where some graceless marauder might be waiting for 
the good father with the weekly " collection," or perhaps his reverence 
took journeys to London and elsewhere? St. Dunstan's, Fleet Street, 

* I offered this item to "2V. & Q." and it duly appeared, "but no one seemed one 
penny the worse" (or better). Perhaps the bibliographers had got hold of the detail 
before me. 

t Literally, of course, "better," but I find the comparative constantly used in this 
sense in the wills French influence, perhaps. 

t This last word, by the way, baffles me, though copied aright from the original, I 
think, and Ducange is apparently no good. 


and the London friars he names specifically, and there would be the 
long jaunt with its wayside perils lurking in the thickset copse, and 
the hidden chances of the nearest wood.* 

Here is a definite order for a "brass." William BAILLY, citizen 
and linendraper of London (1437),! "marble stone to lie over my 
grave in said church of blessed Mary of Abbechurch, London . . . 
engraved with the image of St. Thomas the Martyr in latten (auricako\ 
and with an image of the aforesaid William BAILLY and of the said 
Thomasine formerly my wife kneeling and praying, with a scroll 
(schedule cedula), inscribed with our names, to the aforesaid image of 
St. Thomas." The latter we know was then the special saint of all 
patriotic Englishmen, and BAILLY, doubtless a fervid client (speaking 
of another church), asks his executors to " represent and adorn in a 
picture the lower panel of the high altar in the chancel of said church 
of lambhith (Lambeth) with the Assumption of the blessed and 
glorious Mary in the centre and an Image of St. Thomas the martyr 
on one side and an Image of St. Katherine on the other side." I am 
afraid this panel must have gone long since. 

Such things are the aura of old-time study, the surviving data for 
a period when life was simpler, and faith, in a sense, more real than 
now; when (on the secular side) feudalism was the discipline of life 
for all, as it is at this day for the young in our public schools; the 
supernatural a matter of course, and the evidence for a miracle on all 
fours with the magic of a flower's growth or the sure wonder of the 
coming dawn; when an eye to this world and prudence as to the other 
rested on a due cultivation of the members of the heavenly host, with 
material tributes to their temples and to the hierarchy here on earth. 
So much for the religious reality of the time, constantly borne witness 
to by these documents, and especially marked out by the results of 
scholars' researches in the history of the guilds. 

The sumptuary laws in vogue, through part of the mediaeval 
period, must only have taken account of extravagances, and were as 
ineffectual to sweep aside the revelry in colour and fashion as a 
modern edict might be if launched against some of our hat vagaries of 
1911, and it would require more space than a paper of this sort to set 
down the items of costume, lay and ecclesiastical, occurring in almost 
every will. It would seem that once-worn garments were serviceable 
as such, and manifestly there was little market for old clothes in the

local "Jewries," when fur-lined cloaks, costly gowns and jewelled 
tunics came down, with other heirlooms, from generation to generation. 

What has become of all the manuscripts named in the testaments? 
Where are the early copies of chronicles, laws and statutes constantly 
alluded to? For it is probable that the oaken shelves of Duke 
Humphrey, or the recesses of the Cambridge University Library, can 
hold but a tithe of these mediaeval treasures, chief successors though 
they are of the old monastic collections. 

The ruffians of Elizabeth and Edward VI have been indicted long 
since for their smashings and irreverences on the change of religion, 
and every one knows the tale of ecclesiastical pillage of later times that 
has been put down to the Protector and his fanatics. And so one 
might go on speculating, did we not recognize, with some satisfaction 
perhaps, that philosophy is an indulgence, and not the main task, that 
this is the generation of the collector; our toil for the historian, for 
whom material is being gathered. Nowadays the latter needs be " scien- 
tific," and what we add for his arrangement and discernment, by way 
of careful copy or indexed transcript, is part of the labour done. 

Finally, it is much to be desired that some zealous student, well- 
versed in such things, should undertake the full transcription, 
translation and editing of one at least say Rous of these early 
Registers; or it might be a worthy project for some learned Society, 
so full as these wills are of details of etymology, book-lore, genealogy, 
costume, and social and ecclesiastical history.

"'In 1460 (i Edw. IV.) George de LOUGHTON and Arnethan his 
wife' " (see Pedigree Register, II. 175), " 'passed a fine of the Manor of 
Loughton Parva, in order to convey it to a purchaser'; and in the 
seventh year of that reign (1487) it was conveyed in pursuance thereof, 
to Thomas EDY of Stony Stratford, from whom it passed to James 
EDY, who in 1493 gave this Manor by will to Philippa his wife, soon 
after which it was held by John EDY, whose daughter Isabell carried 
it by marriage to John PIGOTT of Beachampton, son of Richard PIGOTT 
of Ripon, in Yorkshire, who was a younger brother of that family." 

"In 1467 (7 Edw. IV.) John EDY of Stony Stratford, Esq., con- 
firmed to Richard, Earl RIVERS, Sir Richard RIVERS his son, etc., his 
Manor of Loughton, which he had of the gift and feoffment of John 
BOTELER, clerk, and other feoffees of George LOUGHTON and Arnethan 
his wife, dated 4th. April, 1460." 

"In the same year Loughton Parva passed to James EDY of Stony 
Stratford, whose granddaughter, Isabell, carried it in marriage to John 
PIGOT of Beachampton." 

LIPSCOMB, in his History of Bucks, from which the above is mostly 
taken, speaks of William EDY and Thomas OVENDEN owning messuages 
in Stony Stratford, Calverton, Wolverton, etc., circa 1401, and subse- 
quently refers to William EDY as of London (1439), coupling his name 
with John EDY and John EDY, Jun r . 

William EDY and Avice his wife are referred to in a will of James 
EDY (1493) as his "progenitors," whilst John EDY and Joan are re- 
ferred to as his parents. 

There is no will traceable of William EDY or of his wife, but there 
is one of the (presumed) son John EDY (dated 20 Sept. 1487), who 
speaks of his wife Jane and of sons James and Edmund, who were to 
be his executors, and mentions his Manor of Loughton and lands in 
"North Croule, Bucks." This will was proved in London I2th June 
1488 (P.C.C. 14 MILLES) by James EDY, the son and executor. Was 
Edmund then deceased? 

John EDY, who in his will desired to be buried in the churchyard ot 
St. Mary Magdalene, appears as a contributor to the building of St. 
Giles, Stony Stratford, the church of Calverton, the church of Waddon, 
the church of Beachampton, the Prior and convent of Snelsale, the 
church of Loughton, the Prior and convent of Bradwell, the church of 
Walverton, the church of Cosgrave, Fortlie, Passenham and Wykyn. 



Then follows the will of James EDY, described as of Stony Stratford, 
Esquire, dated 2yth June, 1493 (P.C.C. DOGETT 28), desiring to be 
buried in the chapel of St. Mary Magdalene there. By this will it would 
seem that John PIGOT'S wife was Elizabeth EDY, and not Isabell, as 
stated in the pedigree of PIGOT of Beachampton and Loughton. 

There is yet another will of an earlier date (2nd Sept. 1447-26 Hen. 
VI.) that of Ewode EDY, described as a draper of London, who left 
bequests to St. Swithin's Church, London, to the building of the chapel 
of St. Giles, Stony Stratford, the Prior of Snellyshale, the Prior of 
Bradwell, the building of the chapel of Calverton and the chapel of St. 
Mary Magdalene, Stony Stratford. This will (P.C.C. 28 LUFFENAM) 
is much faded, but enough is disclosed to show that he had a sister 
Agnes and a brother, possibly named Thomas, described as a "citizen 
and clothworker of London." 

A Thomas EDY is described by LIPSCOMB as the first (DY) owner 
of the manor at Loughton Parva, etc. He conveyed it to John EDY, 
but whether as uncle or brother is not disclosed. It is more than likely 
that Ewode and Thomas EDY were brothers to William, but this is a 
question to be decided by further search. 

The name in these three wills is uniformly spelt EDY whilst the 
name Henry EDYE, a Rector of Beachampton (1470-1490), is so sub- 
scribed, a circumstance, however, which the Editor tells me is of no 

There was formerly in the east window of Beachampton church glass 
inscribed to the memory of" Thome EDIE et Agnetis uxor," with the 
arms "Bendy Lozengy Arg. and S ( ?)," (LIPSCOMB'S History of Bucks. 
II, 532), whilst " in the north Isle on the pavement was an antient 
stone thereon the Effigies of a man and woman in brass, underneath 
this inscription on a brass plate being very much worn Orate pro 
anima Johannis EDY et Alicie uxoris Eius qui obijt XVIII de Januarias 
(sic) Anno domini MCCCCLXI quorum animabus propicietur deus." 
(MS. Willis 100, Parochial History of the Hundred of Newport, 

As far as can be traced Ewode EDY left no issue, nor did probably 
Edmund the son of John, seeing that his sister Elizabeth carried the 
family property to the PIGOTS. 

Of Thomas EDY the clothworker we have no record ; the family 
appears to have survived in Northamptonshire, as may be seen from 
the entries in the marriage registers of Burton Latimer, as shown here- 
under, whilst there are other references at Kettering and in the North- 
ampton Registers. 


A study of the will of John EDY throws some doubt on the accuracy 
of the Pedigree of the PIGOTS of Beachampton,as set forth in LIPSCOMB'S 
Bucks (11.527). It is therein stated that John PIGOT of Beachampton, 
son of Richard PIGOT of Little Horwood, married " Isabella, sole 
daughter and heir of John EDY of Stony-Stratford." As a matter of 
fact, John EDY had no daughter of that name neither did the PIGOTS 
apparently inherit as LIPSCOMB sets forth. 

After making certain bequests, John EDY, who in his will does not 
mention his daughters Elizabeth and Margaret, bequeaths the residue 
of his property to his sons James and Edmund. Both lived to 
inherit but apparently Edmund died before the demise of his brother 
James, who in his will does not refer to his brother, but devises all 
his real estate to " my said wife, her heirs, etc." John EDY had two 
daughters Elizabeth and Margaret the former married to John PIGOT 
and the latter to William SHURLEY ; and according to the terms of their 
brother's will, the reversion of the estate at the mother's death was to 
pass "to John PYGOT and Elizabeth his wife my sister and William 
SHURLEY and Margaret his wife my sister and their heirs." As the 
will was signed 2yth June, and proved 2nd August 1493, ^ s evident 
Margaret SHURLEY was alive at the first named date, although she may 
have been deceased at the second.

Annaghkeene (2,700 acres, Irish) forfeited by theBouRKEsin 1641, 
was granted in 1666 to Richard COOTE, Lord COLLOONEY, in whose 
Regiment Gilbert CARTER had served, and came to him for services in 
that Regiment. Gilbert CARTER bought 300 acres in Co. Galway for 
60 from John LYNCH (cf. Exchequer Bill, Feb. 1679.) 

Thomas CARTER of Co. Galway, fourth son of Gilbert CARTER of 
Annaghkeene, who died in 1680, appears to have been the father of 
several children. 

(1) Rev d . Oliver CARTER, of Lismeen, Co. Clare, Prebendary of 
Tulla 1757. 

He was married twice, but had no issue by either wife. His will 
proved 1768.

1736, and died 1782. 

(3) Elizabeth, married Mr. SWANWICK, of Co. Mayo. 

(4) John CARTER of Dublin. 

Joshua CARTER who was of age in 1753, married 1757 Anne 
WARREN, and died 1800, was probably grandson to Oliver CARTER.

The Rolls of the Court Baron of the Royal Manor of Lyndhurst 
in the New Forest, co. Hants, are preserved at the Office of the 
Verderers' Court, Abbey Walk, Romsey, for the dates 1666-1675 ; 
1696-7; 1710-14; 1714-22. The later rolls after 1722 are at the 
King's House, Lyndhurst. At Romsey there is also a fairly complete 
series of Swainmote and Attachment Court Rolls from 1665 with 
ancient copies of an Attachment Court Roll of 1 607 ; a Justice Seat 
1620-2 ; and a Swainmote Roll of 1632. 

The following genealogical abstracts and notes from the above are 
valuable because the Parish Registers of Minstead (containing also the 
earlier entries for Lyndhurst) do not begin till 1682. They were 
made by me with the kind permission of Mr. Montague CHANDLER, 
the Clerk to the Verderers.

(For. Proc. Excheq. Treas. of Rec. and For. Proc. Chanc. Modern).

This cemetery, now used as a recreation ground for Chelsea Work- 
house, in the King's Road at the corner of Arthur Street, was 
given to the Parish by Sir Hans SLOANE, Bart., in 1733, and was en- 
larged in 1790, by a grant of some ground from Lord CADOGAN. 
Thomas FAULKNER in An Historical and Topographical description of 
Chelsea, published in 1810, (at p. 106), gives a description of it, and 
the names of some of the persons buried there, with the year in which 
they died. Inscription No. 126 he gives in full, as follows: In 
memory of John MARTYN | F.R.S., Professor of Botany at Cam- 
bridge | And | Eulalia, his wife, the youngest daughter of John KING, 
D.D., | Rector of this parish | She died February I3th 1748-9, in the 
46 th year of her Age; | He, January 29, 1768, in the 69 th year of his 
Age and both lie here | interred | "The Memory of the Righteous 
shall live for ever." 

He also mentions the following persons, whose inscriptions have 
now disappeared. 

Lady Rous, a. 90, 1777, relict of Sir Wm. Rous, Alderman, of 
London; Robert HARRIS, Esq., 1783; J. B. CIPRIANI, 1785; John 
WILKINS, Lieut. Colonel, i8 th Foot, 1789; Lucy Frances, w. of Wm. 
FURRELL, 1789; Philip WITHERS, D.D., 1790; James Delanay MUIRSON, 
M.D., 1791; James FAULKNER, infant s. of Thomas and Frances 
FAULKNER, 1805; John HAMILTON, 1808; A. POWER, 1809. 

The ground is enclosed on the south and west sides by iron railings, 
and about three yards from the railings a latticed fence serves to pre- 
vent the inmates of the workhouse from communicating with persons 
in the street. Inscriptions 1-28 are between these fences and com- 
mence at the south-east corner. On the workhouse side of the latticed 
fence, the ground is divided into "East Side" and "West Side" by a 
path, paved with tombstones, running north and south. On the " West 
Side" my abstracts begin at the north-west corner, and pass from north 
to south, and back from south to north on the east side of this portion 
of the ground. On the "East Side" they begin at the south-west 
corner, and pass up the west side of that part of the ground, and begin 
again at the south-east corner, passing up the east side. But they are 
very irregularly disposed. Many stones are now quite or nearly blank. 
These abstracts were made in August, 1911.

On the 25th August the Society entered into possession of two rooms, con- 
veniently situate at No. 227 Strand (by Temple Bar), facing the Law Courts 
and within easy reach of the Record Office, the British Museum and Somerset 
House. The usual Monthly Meetings of the Executive Committee were held 
at the Society's Rooms on yth September, 5th October and 2nd November. 
It was resolved on the yth September to appoint a representative to attend the 
Meeting in London in 1913 of the Congres International des Sciences Auxiliares 
de 1'Histoire, whose Meetings are held every five years ; that of 1903 having 
been held in Rome and that of 1908 in Berlin. On the 5th October it was 
resolved that the Rooms of the Society be open daily from 1 1 a.m. to 7 p.m., 
and letters and reports were read as to the York Archiepiscopal and Diocesan 
Records and the Census Returns. A Committee was appointed to communi- 
cate with the Registrar-General and others with a view to gaining access to the 
Census Returns of 1841 and 1851 ; the earlier ones, it is understood, being 
destroyed or useless for genealogical purposes. The Hon. Secretary lent the 
Society a collection of 339 original documents, copies, abstracts and extracts, 
arranged in parishes from Bedfordshire to Norfolk, the surnames occurring therein 
having been indexed on 4294 of the Society's index-slips. On the 2nd Nov- 
ember a large number of Members was elected to serve on Sub-Committees 
and the Hon. Secretary directed to take steps towards their formation. The 
Hon. Secretary was empowered to lend loose documents, pedigree charts, etc., 
the property of the Society, to Members for purposes of cataloguing and index- 
ing, it being desirable that those undertaking such work should have local know- 
ledge. A letter dated 5th October from Mr. George Edward MOSER of 
Kendal was read, accompanying a pamphlet concerning the custody of Parish 
Registers anterior to July 1837, and recommending the cheapening of searches 
therein. It was resolved " that this Society is strongly of opinion that the 
Parish Registers of England and Wales, before ist of July 1837, be vested in 
the Master of the Rolls, deposited in the Public Record Office, and be open to 
inspection under the same conditions as the other national archives are." A 
letter was read from Mr. W. B. BROWNE, of Blackinton, Berkshire Co., Massa- 
chusetts, urging that a more definite appeal be made to American Members by 
pointing out that this Society hopes to identify emigrants to America with their 
places of residence in the British Isles and the families to which they belonged. 
The thanks of the Executive Committee are due to Mr. Kington BAKER for 
five guineas and to Mr. G. P. TOWNEND for two guineas, gifts towards the 
general purposes fund. 

Committee on the Library^ Printed volumes. The Accessions List enumerates 
231 items received by gift, to the various donors of which the Society tenders 
its grateful thanks. A number of volumes still remains to be entered. Dr. 
BRADBROOK. and Messrs. G. L. APPERSON and C. A. BERNAU presented a con- 
siderable number, and fifteen volumes of Manchester Court Leet Records and 
Constables' Accounts were presented by the Corporation of Manchester. 
Printed Parish Registers are acknowledged by the Committee on Parish 

Committee on the Library, MS. "Volumes. The following volumes in MS 
have been received. 

A Lexicographical List of Wills in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, 
1746-7, with Indexes of surnames and places. Presented by Mr. F. 

A Catalogue of 220 Miscellaneous Deeds with Indexes of surnames and 
places. Presented by Mr. George SHERWOOD. 

An Index to Surnames in "Originalia" (EXCHEQUER) as given in Add. MSS. 
6363-6368 in the British Museum. Presented by the Rev d . Edward 

A volume of Miscellaneous Pedigrees by Joseph FOSTER. Presented by 


A volume of Miscellaneous Pedigrees by Robert HOVENDEN, F.S.A. 

Presented by Mr. F. M. R. HOLWORTHY. 

Committee on the Library ', Documents. At a Meeting on the 1 3th Nov., pre- 
sided over by Sir Thomas H. C. TROUBRIDGE, Mr. E. F. KIRK was appointed 
Hon. Secretary. It was decided to make a special appeal to solicitors and others 
to send their obsolete deeds and writings to the Society for safe keeping, so that 
their contents may be indexed. 

A collection of loose papers and catalogue slips relating to Worcestershire 
was received from the Rev d . J. Harvey BLOOM, M.A., together with many 
catalogue slips referring to Scottish Charters. Sir Thomas TROUBRIDGE pre- 
sented to the Society 42 original deeds and papers, of which 39 relate to 
Crediton in Devon, 1663 to 1720. The Rev d . Evelyn YOUNG presented a 
number of abstracts of Suffolk wills. 

Committee on the Consolidated Index. The Hon. Secretary, Mr. F. S. SNELL, 
M.A., reports the receipt of between twelve and thirteen thousand index-slips, 
including a number to wills in the Prerogative Court, 1790, at present kept 
separate. A very large number of index-slips is being dealt with by the Parish 
Registers Committee. This Committee suggests that whenever indexing is 
contemplated, of either MSS. or printed books, the Society's index-slips be used, 
and that when they are transcribed the slips be passed to the Society for sortation 
into the Consolidated Index. Blank index-slips are supplied gratuitously on this 

Committee for Cataloguing Pedigrees. A meeting was held on the 1 5th of 
November, at which the Rev d . H. L. L. DENNY, M.A., was elected Chairman 
and Mr. Campbell WYNNE, Hon. Secretary. The work of this Committee is 
to prepare lists of all accessible pedigrees, whether in print or MSS., and to cata- 
logue them in detail, showing what ground is covered by each pedigree and 
what its contents are. Its business also is to form as complete a collection as 
may be of printed pedigree charts, but Members may file with the Society 
copies of any pedigrees not already in the collection, whether they happen to be 
in print or in manuscript. Mr. GLENCROSS presented material for supplement- 
ary lists of pedigrees in printed books, all the items in which will be entered on 
the Society's index-slips. 

Committee on Monumental Inscriptions. The Society is indebted to Colonel 
G. F. NEWPORT-TINLEY for index-slips containing copies of English inscriptions 
in cemeteries at Boulogne, to Mr. BERNAU and Mr. APPERSON for a long run of 
the publications of the Society for the Preservation of Memorials of the Dead in 
Ireland, to Captain G. H. HARVEY, A.S.C., for a transcript of inscriptions in Bun- 
na-Margie churchyard, Co. Antrim, and to Mr. G. P. TOWNEND for copies 
from Keighley and Pudsey, Co. York. The Rev d . J. Harvey BLOOM sent lists 
of the Warwickshire and Worcestershire churchyards in which inscriptions, prior 
to 1812, had been copied by himself, and copies from various churchyards in 

Committee on Parish Registers and Marriage Licences. The Hon. Secretary 
(Mr. R. M. GLENCROSS, M.A., LL.B.) reports most favourable progress. In 
the Index the Marriages of eighteen parishes and the baptisms and burials of one 
have been incorporated. The Marriages of eight more parishes are waiting to 
be dealt with, making in all twenty-six parishes and about 20,000 index-slips. 
Index-slips for forty more parishes are definitely promised to be written. A 
letter was addressed to the Bishops of the Established Church with respect to 
the fees payable for inspection of " Bishops' Transcripts " of Parish Registers 
and records of Marriage Licences in the various Diocesan Registries. Many 
replies were received and a mass of information has been obtained. Index-slips 
are being written referring to the Marriage Licence Allegations in the Bishop 
of London's Registry, beginning with the year 1750. Of printed volumes of 
Parish Registers almost complete sets relating to Shropshire and Staffordshire 
have been presented by Colonel PARRY, while Dr. BRADBROOK has given us a 
set of Buckinghamshire. To Dr. BRADBROOK also we are indebted for a collec- 


tion of original Marriage Licences relating principally to Bletchley in Bucks, 
1761-1793. The Rev d . Edward COOKSON, M.A., made the Society a most 
valuable gift. We have now on our shelves Mr. COOKSON'S collection of index- 
slips referring to parishes in all parts of England, and estimated to contain 
1 80,000 references. This fine collection is now being sorted into one alphabet. 
Mr. GLENCROSS has presented a MS. list (arranged in Counties) of all the 
parishes in England and Wales, with dates showing when the Registers begin 
and what has been done towards printing and indexing them. 

Committee on Fly-leaf Inscriptions in Family Bibles, etc. Meetings were held 
on the 1st September and I2th November. The Hon. Secretary (Rev d . J. L. 
E. HOOPPELL) reports that a number of original fly-leaves with inscriptions and 
tracings and copies has been received and filed. It is proposed to copy and 
index them. 

Committee on Records of Migration and Change of Residence. Attention is 
specially directed to the letter of Mr. W. B. BROWNE or Blackinton, Massa- 
chusetts, which was placed before the Executive Committee. It was therein 
suggested that a more definite appeal be made to American Members by 
pointing out that this Society hopes to identify emigrants to America with 
their places of residence in the British Isles and the families to which they be- 
longed. Mr. Gerald FOTHERGILL presented the Society with MS. Lists of 
Emigrants 1773-6, Licences to Pass Beyond Seas, 1631-7, and Lists of persons 
likely to emigrate, taken from the State Papers. 

Committee on Local Records. Mr. GLENCROSS was elected to this Committee 
on and November, and on 6th July Mr. George Percy TOWNEND, 39 Heidelberg 
Road, Bradford, Yorkshire, was elected Honorary Local Secretary for Todmor- 
den, Lancashire, and Bradford and Halifax, Yorkshire. 

Committee on Family Associations. A Meeting was held on the 27th May at 
which Mr. Edgar Francis BRIGGS was elected Chairman and Mr. Charles Allan 
BERNAU, Honorary Secretary. Dr. George C. PEACHEY was elected a Member 
on 2nd November. Progress has been made in the compilation of a list of such 
Associations and correspondence has resulted. 

Committees to deal with Irish, Scottish and Welsh records are in course of 
formation. Members wishing to be elected to these are invited to communi- 
cate with the Hon. Secretary (Mr. SHERWOOD). There is much that a Com- 
mittee can do which an individual cannot do, because there is a quasi officialism 
about a Committee that a person cannot assume. Mr. C. S. ROMANES promises 
to present a quantity of material, chiefly Scottish, for the attention of the 
Scottish Record Committee when formed. 

The Annual Subscriptions to the Society of Genealogists are as follows : 

"Fellows," elected from among the Members by the whole body of 

Fellows, Two guineas per annum. Life composition, ten guineas. 
"Members," elected by the Executive Committee, One guinea per 

annum. Life Composition, seven guineas. 
"Associates," elected by the Executive Committee, One guinea per 

annum. Cannot make Life Composition. 

"Corresponding Associates," elected by the Executive Committee, Half a 
guinea per annum. Cannot make Life Composition. Must reside at 
least 25 miles from London. 

Fellows are entitled to receive quarterly from the Society advice of any fresh 
information having accrued respecting certain specified families and places in 
which they may be personally interested, the number of which is limited at 
present to ten. 

As an association "not for profit" (in a pecuniary sense) the Society relies 
for increase of membership upon the efforts of individual members to make its 
purpose known. If an average of only one new member be enrolled by each 
present member, the Society will be established on a sound basis. A form of 
application for membership is sent herewith. 


t Queriea anb 

The Rev d . F. E. COOPE, Thurlestone Rectory, Kingsbridge, South Devon, 
is interested in the families COOPE, COPE, COAPE, DORMAN and JESSER, and 
especially wants the parentage of Richard COOPE Esq., of London and Peckham, 
late of Fulham. He was a Director of the South-Sea Company, Master of the 
Salters' Company in 1734, and one of the founders of the London Hospital. 
He died at Fulham in December 1 765. He married first, at Newbury, in 1712, 
Mary MERRIMAN. She belonged to a well-known Roundhead and Independent 
family there, and there is evidence that he was of the same persuasion. There 
is a mourning ring in memory of Judith COOPE, who died 26 March 1728, 
aged 66. She was possibly his mother. Richard bore the arms granted by 
Henry VIII. to William COOPE, or COPE, cofferer of the Household to that 

JACKSON of Duddington, co. Northampton. Nicholas JACKSON restored the 
house at Duddington in the gth year of Chas. I., and by his will dated 
9 Nov. 1643, left his estate there to his son 

William JACKSON, who succeeded his father 1662, and by will dated 
1 2th November 1667, founded the school at Duddington. His son 

Thomas JACKSON, Esq., J.P., succeeded his father 1667. He married 
Frances, daughter of Charles THURSBY, Esq., of Castor, co. Northampton, and 
by her had issue. 

To this Thomas the arms of the family were granted in 1689. Information 
is sought as to the place of origin of the above Nicholas, who is traditionally 
supposed to have come from the parts of Holland in Lincolnshire.

Sixteenth Century Marriages (1538-1600), by Chas. A. BERNAU, F.S.G., 
(17 Billiter Square Buildings, London, E.G.) 1911, 8vo, pp. 335. 2is. 6d. 

"The best of the sport is to do the deed, and say nothing". (HERBERT'S 
Jacula Prudentum^ 1640.) However this may be, the sub-title so well describes 
the scope of this excellent work that little further need be said to commend its 
usefulness to our readers. The best test of whether it is valuable or not that 
we can suggest is to take a printed Visitation of any county and see how many 
marriages can be filled in by its aid. The sub-title runs as follows: "The 
first of a new series of volumes which, when complete, will enable genealogists 
to discover the record, if still in existence, of any marriage solemnized in England 
from the commencement of parochial registration (1538) until the end of the 
1 6th century. This volume indexes 25,000 individuals married during that 
period, giving their surnames, the surnames of those they married, the years in 
which they were married, and the names of the churches in which the marriages 
were solemnized."

Born I 5 June 



From Elizabeth RATTRAY, sister of Mrs. IBBETSON, descended the 
4th. Earl of HARDWICK. Fanny BRASSEY (Mrs. P. H. BERTHON) was an 
exceedingly pretty woman. She was married very young, and on one 
occasion her husband came home from the Trinity House and found 
his wife sitting on the floor playing with her dolls. 

Peter Henry BERTHON was presented at Court by Lord PALMERS- 
TON. The Rev. Edward Lyon BERTHON, vicar of Romsey, Hants, 
brother of Peter Henry, was the inventor of the Berthon boat. His 
arms have been placed in the window nearest the screen on the 
eastern side of the Dining Hall at Magdalen College, Cambridge. 
When he was 90 years of age, in 1889, 1 used to go and sit and talk with 
Peter Henry BERTHON at his residence, 20, Margaret Street. He 
had almost lost the use of his legs, but his memory was wonderful for 
the whole of his life, as he remembered recent events as well as those 
of his younger days ; but, of course, the early recollections interested 
me most. 

He told me he could remember the hairdresser coming to curl and 
powder his father's hair, and also how, at the time they were living in 
Finsbury Square, he and his parents used to drive every Sunday round 
Hyde Park, with all the paraphernalia of liveried and powdered foot- 
men stuck up behind them. He said the BARNES' (relatives on his 
mother's side) used also to live in Finsbury Square. When asked 
about the BERTHON livery colours (which are not drawn from the 
arms, and of which, for some unknown reason, the BERTHONS are 
expected to be proud) he said he could just remember his grand- 
father's livery colours russet and orange, or, as he described them, a 
dirty-looking brown and orange. The brown he described as being 
much the same shade as that used by the HARRISONS (his grandmother, 
Mrs. Peter BERTHON, was the daughter of John HARRISON, of Charter- 
house Square, a Director of the Bank of England). He said, however, 
that the livery colours were never used after his grandfather's death 
in 1809, as his grandmother used a sort of grayish blue liveries as mourn- 
ing. Mrs. John HINDE (nee Jane BERTHON) a cousin of P. H. BERTHON, 
who died at Ilfracombe, 30 March 1888, aged 99 years and four 
months, told me in 1887, when calling upon her, that the coat was 
russet with collar and cuffs orange ; the waistcoat and knee-breeches 
orange. She said to me, " I can remember your father running 
about when no higher than the table." He, Captain Charles Harrison 
BERTHON, Indian Navy (retired) was then aged 72. Both Peter 
Henry BERTHON and his daughter Fanny Ellen lived to be great- 

There is a monument in St. Peter's Church, Walthamstow, on the 
North wall, to Fanny BERTHON (nee BRASSEY), with arms of the 
BERTHON and BRASSEY families. Peter Henry BERTHON was in some 
way connected with the founding of the Forest School at Waltham- 
stow. On one occasion when visiting him he spoke of King GEORGE IV. 
and his ill-fated Queen. He was a strong upholder of the Queen's, 
and talked of the affair more with the spirit of a lively partisan than 
as though it was a matter of past history.

The Executive Committee has to report favourable progress, the Roll of Mem- 
bers, etc., on the I4th February numbering one hundred and sixty-one. The 
usual Monthly Meetings of the Executive Committee were held in the Society's 
Rooms on 7th December, 4th January and I4th February. On the 7th December 
a resolution of profound regret at the irreparable loss sustained by the Society 
owing to the death of its President, the late Marquess of TWEEDDALE, K.T., was 
unanimously passed. A copy of the resolution of 2nd November, as to the cus- 
tody of Parish Registers anterior to 1837, was ordered to be sent to the Arch- 
bishops of Canterbury and York, the Prime Minister, the Home Secretary and the 
Master of the Rolls. At the Meeting on 4th January it was resolved that the 
Meetings of this Committee should be held on the second Wednesday in each 
month at 2 o'clock, instead of on the first Thursday as heretofore. A special 
letter of thanks was directed to be sent to Mr. Reginald Burnet MORRIS, M.A., 
LL.B., for the work he has done and is doing in sorting the slips of the Con- 
solidated Index. In reference to Welsh records it was recommended that when 
the Parliamentary Bill for the Disestablishment of the Church in Wales is drafted, 
a print be obtained and submitted to this Committee. Steps were taken to place 
the Society on the telephone. The Hon. Secretary handed to the Society on 
loan 332 more original documents, copies, abstracts and extracts, arranged in 
parishes from Bedfordshire to Norfolk, and 191 from Norfolk to Surrey, together 
with 1,234 index-slips referring to them, making a total of 852 documents and 
5,528 index-slips, all of which have been sorted into the Consolidated Index. In 
reply to representations made by a Committee appointed by this Society to take 
steps towards getting access to the Census Returns of 1841 and 1851, a letter was 
received on the i8th January from the Registrar-General expressing regret that 
administrative difficulties prevent their being thrown open as desired. In 
January one thousand copies of a new Prospectus of 43 pages were received from 
the printers. 

Committee on the Library, Printed volumes. The Accessions List enumerates 
338 items received by gift. A number of volumes still remains to be entered. 
Advantage was taken by Members of the privilege of borrowing certain books, 
and much appreciation of this aid to study and research was expressed, it having 
been found in practice that works such as the Society possesses are unobtainable 
elsewhere. Mr. W. Roberts CROW resigned his membership of this Committee 
on the 1 3th January. 

Committee on the Library, MS. volumes. The following volumes in MS. have 
been received : A copy of the Register of Probates, Shrewsbury Canal Company, 


1833-47, with some annotations and indexes, by R. H. G. SMALLWOOD. Small 
quarto, pp. 54. Presented by Mr. R. H. G. SMALLWOOD. Abstract of the Title- 

etc., in the parish of St. Just, Cornwall now belonging to Mrs. Ann 

NICHOLAS of East Looe. 1822. (Signed) Nic'as Harris NICOLAS. Small quarto, 
pp. 72. Presented by Mr. Campbell WYNNE. A copy of the Parish Register of 
Stokenham, Devon, 1574-1591. Small quarto, pp. 49. Presented by Mr. E. 
Haviland HILLMAN. A copy of the Parish Register of Etchingham, Sussex. 
Baptisms 1561-1726; Burials 1561-1725. Folio, pp. 65. Presented by Mr. R. 
M. GLENCROSS, M.A., LL.B. A copy of the Parish Register of Bridgerule, Devon. 
Baptisms and Burials 1702-1812. Folio, pp. 43. Presented by Mr. R. M. 
GLENCROSS, M.A., LL.B. A copy of an Inclosure Award in the parish of Crop- 
thorne, Wore., 1780. Large folio, pp. 239. Presented by Mr. George SHERWOOD. 

Committee on the Library, Documents. Considerable progress has been made 
with the collection. Mr. HOLWORTHY presented 35 documents relating to the 
parishes of Bakewell, Derby ; Cheshunt, Herts. ; Chilham, Chislet, Deptford, 
Eastchurch, Harbledown, Herne and Minster, Kent ; Melton Mowbray, Leic. ; 
Llandecwyn, Merioneth ; Islington, Lincoln's Inn, St. Bartholomew Exchange, 
St. George, Hanover Square, St. Peter, Cornhill, East Smithfield, Stepney, 
Strand and Whitehall, London and Middlesex ; Thetford, Norfolk ; Carcolston, 
Notts., and Stanton St. John, Oxon. Mr. Wynne presented forty documents 
relating to Axminster, Devon ; Hawkchurch, Dorset ; St. Botolph, Bishopsgate, 
London ; St. Luke, Middlesex ; Tower of London ; Butleigh, Cricket Thomas 
and Winsham, Somerset ; and Leamington Priors, Warwick. Mr. J. C. BROOK- 
HOUSE presented 20 documents relating to the families of Fox and BRANWHITE 
and Whitechapel, Middlesex. Mr. E. F. BRIGGS presented 35 papers relating to 
the estate of William HOYS, who died in 1847. Mr. J. F. FULLER, F.S.A., pre- 
sented a considerable number of lists, copies and abstracts of FULLER wills, etc., 
from all parts of the kingdom, a most valuable collection. Mr. G. P. TOWNEND 
presented material relating to the families of ACKROYD and CRAVEN. 

The system pursued is to place loose documents in envelopes and to write 
outside all proper names mentioned in the enclosed document ; these names 
are copied on to Index-slips, which are sorted in dictionary order. This Com- 
mittee invites voluntary help in (a) writing the envelopes, (b) writing the Index- 
slips, for any county in which the helper may be interested. Offers of assistance 
may be addressed to Mr. E. F. KIRK (Hon. Secretary). 

Committee on the Consolidated Index. Additional instructions for the filling- 
in of slips have been issued, and copies may be obtained of the Hon. Secretary, 
Mr. F. S. SNELL, M.A. In the work of sortation two additional Members, viz., 
Sir Thomas TROUBRIDGE and the Revd. Dr. MOOR, have kindly undertaken 
portions of the alphabet. Besides the additions reported by the Parish Register 
Committee, slips dealing with various records have come in, not the least valuable 
being the first instalments of an Index to the Journal of the Irish Society for the 
Preservation of Memorials of the Dead. The number of Index-sh'ps now 
amounts to about 250,000. 

Committee for Cataloguing Pedigrees. A meeting of this Committee was held 
on the gth January, Sir Thomas H. C. TROUBRIDGE, Bt., in the Chair. A large 
number of printed pedigrees has been catalogued. Members are especially 
invited to assist by listing pedigrees contained in printed works or in MSS., and 
entering the same on the Society's Index-slips. The work is interesting, not 
arduous, and is of great importance to the Society. Offers of help in this direc- 
tion should be addressed to Mr. Campbell WYNNE, Hon. Secretary. 

Committee on Monumental Inscriptions. The first meeting -was held on 
3ist January, the Revd. J. L. E. HOOPPELL in the Chair. Mr. F. M. R. HOL- 
WORTHY was elefted Hon. Secretary. Some progress has been made in the 


compilation of a list of the parishes the inscriptions in which have been copied, 
showing where such copies are to be found. A considerable number of copies 
and Index-slips have been sorted into the Consolidated Index. 

Committee on Parish Registers and Marriage Licences. Since the last Report 
there have been incorporated or partly incorporated in the Consolidated Index 
the Registers of seven additional parishes, viz. Irton, Cumberland, to 1 800 ; 
Martinhoe and Trentishoe, Devon, Marriages to 1812 ; Upton, Norfolk, Mar- 
riages to 1812 ; Witton by Blofield, Norfolk, Marriages to 1809 ; Marlborough 
(St. Peter), Wilts., Marriages to 1812 ; Bradford, Yorks., Baptisms and Marriages 
to c. 1611. The entries from Irton and Bradford are not in print. Full copies 
of the Registers of Bridgerule, Devon, Baptisms and Burials 1702-1812 ; St. 
Nicholas, Cole Abbey, London, 1538-1812 ; and Etchingham, Sussex, Baptisms 
and Burials 1561-1625, have been acquired by gift. Full copies, baptisms and 
burials only, of those of the following twenty-four Cornish parishes have been 
kindly lent to the Society for the use of Members by Mrs. J. H. GLENCROSS ; 
Blisland, 1706-1812 ; Bodmin, 1558-1812 ; Cardinham, 1701-1812 ; St. Endellion, 
1732-1812 ; Helland, 1722-1812 ; St. Issey, 1596-1812; Lanhydrock, 1558-1812; 
Lanlivery, 1583-1812; Lewannick, 1660-1812; Lezant, 1539-1812; Linkin- 
horne, 1576-1812 ; Luxulyan, 1594-1812 ; St. Mabyn, 1562-1812 ; St. Mellion, 
1558-1812; St. Merryn, 1688-1812; St. Minver, 1558-1812; Morwinstow, 
1558-1812; Padstow, 1611-1812; Pillaton, 1557-1812; St. Sampson, 1568- 
1812; St. Stephen in Branwell, 1695-1812; Warleggan, c. 1549-1812; St. 
Winnow, 1622-1812 ; Withiel, 1567-1812. None of these has been printed. 

Committee on Family Associations. Information of value and interest has been 
received about the following Family Associations : The HORTON Family Asso- 
ciation, the RANDALL Historical Association, and the Clan MOFFAT in America. 
The fa6ls will be tabulated and entered on Index-slips. An inquiry has also been 
received as to whether there is a HILL Family Association. The names of any 
Family Associations will be welcomed. 

N.B. For the convenience of inquirers the names of those Members who 
undertake research professionally will be distinguished by an asterisk in the 
Annual List of Members now in preparation. Such Members are invited to send 
their names to the Hon. Secretary before the 1st of June. 

The Annual Subscriptions to the Society of Genealogists are as follows : 

"Fellows," elected from among the Members by the whole body of 

Fellows, Two guineas per annum. Life Composition, ten guineas. 
"Members," elected by the Executive Committee, One guinea per 

annum. Life Composition, seven guineas. 
"Associates," elected by the Executive Committee, One guinea per 

annum. Cannot make Life Composition. 

"Corresponding Associates," elected by the Executive Committee, Half a 
guinea per annum. Cannot make Life Composition. Must reside at 
least 25 miles from London. 

Fellows are entitled to receive quarterly from the Society advice of any fresh 
information having accrued respecting certain specified families and places in 
which they may be personally interested, the number of which is limited at 
present to ten. 

As an association "not for profit" (in a pecuniary sense) the Society relies 
for increase of membership upon the efforts of individual members to make its 
purpose known. If an average of only one new member be enrolled by each 
present member, the Society will be established on a sound basis. A form of 
application for membership is sent herewith. 


Queries anb 

STOCKER. Wanted record (circa 1575-95), of marriage of Thomas STOCKER 
to Joane (or Jeanne), daughter of William STEVENSON of Godmanchester, Hunts., 
and any particulars of Henry STOCKER, who married Agnes, the younger daughter 
of Richard ROBYNS, who founded Godmanchester Grammar School in 1558. 
C. J. S. 

PHIPPS (FYPS, PHIP, etc.), 1500-1810. Abstracts of most of the wills of 
testators of these names, in the Prerogative Court and other registries, with 
many other notes and short pedigrees, are in my possession. I am anxious to 
correspond with others interested. Major H. R. PHIPPS, R.F.A., R.A. Mess, 
Ferozepore, India. 

A Concordance of all Written Lawes concerning Lords of Mannors, iheire Tree 
Tenantes and Copieholders, by William BARLEE, 1578. The Manorial Society's 
Publications, No. 6. i, Mitre Court Buildings, London, E.G. 1911. Octavo. 
pp. 72. 

" Keape safelie (I praye yow) All these Articles . . . and hide them from Rasshe 
hedded fellowes : lest thei tare yow or yowre frendes to peces I meane lest thei 
vexe lords of manors Before my boke maye bee understodended and my tale fullie 
tolde ..." thus William BARLEE to the reader, to raise, we fear, hopes of a most 
interesting treatise, but which were doomed to disappointment. The book, 
unhappily, is not a " Concordance of aU written laws concerning manors," but 
rather the heads of chapters of a proposed work which never saw the light. Its 
quaint form and discursive language, however, make it well worthy of being 
printed by The Manorial Society. We can promise readers an hour or more's 
withdrawal from the preoccupations of the twentieth century if they care to 
immerse themselves in its pages. The Manorial Society issues therewith its Fifth 
Annual Report. 

A Quaker Royal Descent, by Josiah NEWMAN, F.R.Hist.Soc. (London) 1911. 
4to. pp. 8 [printed on one side only]. This is a table, very well set out, 
showing descent from Hugh, Bishop of Coutances in 990, through MORTIMER, 
PUMPHREY and NEWMAN of the present day. The crucial point, the marriage 
of Dorothy ONSLOW and John SOMERFORD about 1619, is proved by record- 
evidence quoted at length, and the work finishes with a " Seize Quartier " of 
John SOMERFORD of Somerford, co. Stafford, born about 1600. 

Coronation Tear Records of the Parish of The Lee (Buckinghamshire), by 
A. Lasenby LIBERTY. 1911. 8vo. pp. 60. 

The contents of this book include an account of the festivities held in the 
village on Coronation Day and during the " octave " thereof : but probably the 
real reason for being of the book is, that during 1911, the enlargement of the 
parish took place with a consequent very considerable alteration of area and 
boundaries : the Church also was re-opened after being closed for some months 
during the processes of renovation and extension. It is plain that the whole 
constitutes not only an interesting but a highly important record, and The Lee 
is to be congratulated on being under the benevolent feudal domination of such 
a Manorial Lord as Mr LIBERTY, who brings to the compilation of his excellent 


little book the qualities of historian, antiquary (he is chairman of the Bucks 
Archaeological Society, see p. 48) and man of the world. 

It is a good (and shrewd) idea to print the details of the fancy-dress procession 
and the cricket matches. Evidently the compiler is well aware of the exaltation 
felt by common clay on seeing its name in print. This alone will insure the 
permanent preservation of the book in every cottage of The Lee. Again, the 
list of names is a practical census of the population : what would we not willingly 
give for a similar record of any parish at the date, say, of Charles II, his coronation, 
or on the occasion of Queen Bess, her visit to Kenilworth; or indeed of much 
more recent events ? 

The account of the proceedings and negotiations preceding the extension of 
the parish, which lasted four years, and the reasons thereunto moving, form a 
chapter of more importance, and should be studied by those whom fate may cause 
to participate in that kind of work. Copies of the official decrees and illustrative 
plans and maps are here found, with extracts from DUGDALE, LIPSCOMB, and 
other authorities on topographical history. In this connection we might draw 
attention to the recent adtion in Chancery (January last), before Mr Justice 
EADY, concerning the rights of parishioners in Mitcham common, which demon- 
strates the need of preserving in accessible printed form such items of parochial 
history as are found in this book. 

We deferentially suggest to Mr LIBERTY that he re-introduce the ancient and 
laudable custom of beating the bounds on Ascension Day, and cause the record 
of the perambulation to be preserved in the Parish Council archives, with a 
statement of any rights of common and way that now exist. We draw attention 
to the name of the parish, The Lee, and the incorrect description in the Orders 
of the Local Government Board and County Council where it is printed, " Lee," 
and deprived of its distinguishing adjeCtive. 

The chapter on the improvement of the Church and the re-opening is enriched 
by an account of the negotiations and manoeuvres (perhaps the best expression) 
preliminary to the building in 1867-9. ^ see ms that details and plans having 
been elaborated by the promoters, they approached the Bishop and laid before 
him, in 1865, a complete scheme for consideration. Bishop WILBERFORCE at 
once claimed the work for the diocesan architect and vetoed the promoters' 
architect, which aCtion has the appearance of an episcopal job ! The promoters 
demurred and dropped the scheme. Two years later the Bishop enquired as to 
progress and on being told the condition waived his stipulation. The old 
church, a small thirteenth century building, still stands, and there is the old 
parish register beginning 1678 (KELLY). We hope Mr LIBERTY will plunge The 
Lee and the public still deeper in indebtedness to him by printing the register. 

There are other matters included in the book : e.g. names of all existing 
office-holders, such as parish councillors, school managers, local preachers, etc., 
and a plan of the parish in 1783, giving the field-names, always a suggestive 
item of history. A long article could be written round this almost unique 
book. We wish that such books were universal and recommend this one as a 
model for imitation by all those whose position or authority gives the oppor- 
tunity of producing the like record for other parishes. We exhort them to study 
this work as they do the exemplaria Grceca^ nocturna versate manu, versate diurna, 
and then go and do likewise. 

There is one omission : no index. Finally, the type, style and production of 
this stimulating little volume are evidence of care and judgment. 

The Pedigree Register 

JUNE 1912] [VoL. II, No. 21. 

5<wti% of 3fo0n a;, #* (printer of 

John DAY was born at Dunwich, Suffolk, in 1522. He died at Saf- 
fron Walden, Essex, 23 July 1584, and was buried with an interesting 
rhyming brass at Bradley Parva, Suffolk, 2 August. He married first 
(apparently) Hanna - , by whom he had thirteen children, only 
one of whom is known, viz.: 

Richard DAY, M.A. Born 1552; Fellow of King's College, Cam- 
bridge, 1574; y i car f Reigate, Surrey in 1583-4, in the room of John 
FOXE, the martyrologist. Richard DAY was a printer also, like his 
father, and died about 1607. 

John DAY married secondly Alice, daughter and heir of Richard LE 
HUNTE of Bradley Parva, by Anne, daughter, and eventually heir, of 
Francis (or Thomas) KNIGHTON of the same parish. The mother, 
Anne, married secondly Thomas SOAME of Bradley, and they were the 
parents of, amongst others (fourteen in all), Sir Stephen SOAME, Knt., 
of Little Thurlow, Suffolk, Lord Mayor of London in 1598, who mar- 
ried Anne, daughter of William STONE of Segenhoe in Ridgemont, 

By Alice LE HUNTE, so the DAY brass at Bradley Parva informs us, 
John DAY had another family of thirteen children, making twenty-six 
in all; and Alice, his second wife, also married a second time, her second 
husband being William STONE of Segenhoe in Bedfordshire (aforesaid). 
She, as the rhyming brass at Little Parva humorously expresses it, 

" was the last encreaser of his (John DAY'S) Stoore, 
Who mourning long for being left alone, 
Set upp this toombe her self turn d to a STONE." 

Of these thirteen children only three are known, viz.: 

(i.) Bartholomew DAY " the sonne of John DAY, Gent., buryed 

the 6 of May," 1581, at Bradley Parva. 

(2.) John DAY, born " near or over Aldersgate " about 1566. He 
was a Commoner of St. Alban Hall, Oxford, in 1582, aged 16; 
Fellow of Oriel in 1588; M.A. and B.A.; vicar of St. Mary's, 
Oxford, 1609-22, and rector of Little Thurlow, the next 
parish to Bradley Parva, to which he was presented by Sir 
William SOAME. He died January 1627, aged sixty-one, and 
was buried in Little Thurlow church, where there is a monu- 
ment erected to his memory by his younger brother Lyonell, 
stating that Lyonell was the sole surviving one of the family 
of twenty-six brothers and sisters. 



John DAY is best known by his Day's Dyall, 1614, etc. There is an 

account of him in BLISS'S Wood's Athenee Oxonienses (Vol. II., col. 


His will, dated 28 September 1627, was proved 20 March, 1628, by 

his brother Lyonell (P. C. C. 27 BARRINGTON). It is an interesting 


(3.) Lyonell DAY, of whom we have been speaking, born about 
1570. He was a Fellow of Balliol, and sometime of Oriel 
College, Oxon; B.D. June 1608. He was apparently curate 
at Chinnor, in Oxfordshire, about 1610-12, and in 1614 was 
reclor of Whichford, county Warwick, until his death. He 
was the author of several learned books. He died in 1640, 
and was buried in the chancel of the church of Whichford, 
I May, aged seventy. DUGDALE, in his Antiquities of 
Warwickshire, records his burial and the Latin inscription 
(ed. 1657, p. 449^. 

Lyonell DAY married in 1610 (perhaps at Chinnor) Mary , 

and had issue: 

(i.) John (1611-31) to whom his uncle John DAY bequeathed a 

valuable library of books, as we shall see later. 
(2.) Mary (1612- ) married Philip KING; both living 1649. 
(3.) Philip, baptised at Whichford 5 March 1614; eldest surviving 

son in 1649, to whom his mother bequeathed a house and

Mary DAY'S will is dated at Whichford, 27 March 1649; anc ^ was 
proved 7 May following, by Lionel DAY, her son (P. C. C. FAIRFAX 72). 
She describes herself as widow of Lionel DAY, clerk and rector of 
Whichford, and makes a bequest to the poor there. 

In connection with Lyonell DAY, we possess a valuable literary 
commonplace-book which formerly belonged to him, and was 
No. 24,043 in Sir Thomas PHILLIPPS'S library. 


It is a thick small folio in parchment covers, and is largely filled with 
Lyonell DAY'S excellent handwriting in double columns. It contains 
comments upon the following, 

(i.) John FOXE'S Actes and, Monuments, 2 vols., folio, 1583, printed 

by John DAY, father to Lyonell. 
(2.) GRIMSTON'S History of Spain, 1612. 
(3.) GRIMSTON'S History of the Netherlands, 1609. 
(4.) GRIMSTON'S Inventory of France. 

This was Edward GRIMSTONE, serjeant-at-law, who married, 
as her third husband, Lyonell DAY'S mother, Alice, widow of 
William STONE. He died 16 August 1610, aged eighty-six, 
and was buried at Rishangles. 

(5.) Sir Walter RALEIGH'S History oj the World, 1614. 
At the end of the manuscript is 

" A new noate of y e bookes w* my Brother John DAY gave unto 
my Sonn John DAY," and again, " A noate of such bookes as 
my Sonn John hath had of me of the Bookes w 011 his Uncle my 
deare Brother bestowed on him, 1628." 

These lists are most valuable, consisting of no less than nineteen 
columns (books and manuscripts), some 622 in all. There can be no 
doubt that many of these originally belonged to the great printer, John 

There is an Index to the book of two columns. Upon the last 
page is a family register, which we give exactly as it stands, having, in 
the former account of his family, supplied some additional information 
from Whichford parish register.

For further particulars of John DAY, the printer, we must refer to 
the Dictionary of National Biography, AMES'S Typographical Antiquities, 
and particularly The Gentleman's Magazine for 1832 (Part II., pp. 
417-21 and 597-99), where are a valuable " Memoir of John DAYE the 
Printer " and " Further Notices of DAYE the Printer." These include 
a full-page engraved plate of the Bradley Parva brass, autographs of 
DAY, etc., and an account of his family, with a full transcript of the 
M.I. to John DAY the younger. 

The DAY brass shews three armorial shields, one of the Stationers' 
Company, one of DAY with the motto Mihi vita Christus, and the 

The brass represents John and Alice DAY in the attitude of prayer 
kneeling at a table, at the end of which are represented two chrysom 
children. On the table are two open devotional books. Behind John 
DAY are six sons, and behind Alice DAY, five daughters, all kneeling in 
prayer. The legend is as follows : 

" heere lies the DAYE that darknes could not blynd 
When popish fogges had ouer cast the sunne 
This DAYE the cruell night did leaue behynd 
To view and shew what bloudi Actes weare donne 
he set a Fox to wright how Martyrs runne 
By death to lyfe Fox ventur'd paynes & health 
To give them light DAYE spent in print his wealth 
But God with gayn retorn'd his wealth agayne 
And gaue to him as he gaue to the poore 
Tow wyues he had pertakers of his payne 
Each wyfe twelve babes and each of them one more 
Als was the last encreaser of his Stoore 
Who mourning long for being left alone 
Set upp this toombe her self turn d to a STONE. 
obiit July 1584." 

It may be interesting to add John DAY'S administration acl (P.C.C.), 
which runs as follows : 

" 1583-4. Tertio die emanavit commissio Alice DAY relicle 
Johis DAYE nuper dum vixit parochie Sancli Anne sive 
Agnetis prope Aldergate civiti London defunct h'entis, etc." 

So far as we know this has not before been printed.

I am indebted to the Editor of The Pedigree Register, to Mr. Her- 
bert DRUITT'O Christchurch, and to Mr. Henry Gomez Binfield 
GOLDWYER (formerly of Kimberley, S.A.) for much assistance in mak- 
ing the annexed pedigree. 

Somerford, once a grange belonging to the Priory of Christchurch, 
in which the last Prior John DRAPER II. died in 1552, was inhabited 
by this family from before 1596 until 1778, or thereabouts, when it was 
purchased by Gustavus BRANDER, a Director of the Bank of England. 

The Christchurch Registers do not go above 1576, and gaps occur in 
them from 1611 to 1634, an< ^ fr m about 1640 to 1680 (roughly speak- 
ing). Tradition says that a curate's wife converted the missing pages 
into jam-pot covers ! 

The burial-place of the GOLDWYERS was the south-quire-aisle of the 
Priory Church, which is closed, to the eastwards, by the Chantry- 
Chapel of Prior John DRAPER; and there their gravestones may still be 

Their coat of arms azure, on a bend voided or, three stirrups of the 
second; Crest, a stags head -proper attired or; Motto, Caute et Certe 
occurs on the mural monument to members of the younger branch in 
St. Martin's Church, Sarum. 

1. A certain William GOLDWYER was one of the substitutes to Sir 
Walter SANDS, Kt., High Sheriff of Wilts in 1591-2. (P.R.O. Chancery 
pleadings. BRIMINGE v. GOLDWYRE, 1603.)

of Thomas, first Lord ARUNDELL of Wardour, called Ch. Ch. cum mem- 
bris, and William GOLDWYER at that time was steward.

3. 1635. Feb. 10. Wm. GOLDWYER complains that he paid his 
debt of ^5 to Samuel TURNER, first husband of DOROTHY WAVELL, 
widow, in the lifetime of said Samuel. Defendant denies complainant 
did ever pay said money, but believeth the cause of the forbearance so 
long during the life of said Samuel, her husband, was that said com- 
plainant's father being a rich man and complainant not allowed by his 
father any great livelyhood and knowing that after his father's death he 
should enjoye a very good and lardge estate pressed not upon him for 
said sum of money. Prays to be dismissed. (P.R.O. Chan. B. & A. 
Goldwyer v. Wavell 1635.) 

William GOLDWIRE was a Burgess of the Corporation of Christ- 
church on 3 Feb. 1641, when he subscribed an agreement not to claim 
any of the profits of the Borough. 

1646. Feb. II. Arthur LUKE of Lisle Court, co. South'ton, gent., 
and Eliz. his wife, one of the daus. of Francis HANBERY late of Walling- 
ton in sd. county, deceased, complain that whereas Queen Elizabeth 
by Letters Patent 21 July, 39th year, demised etc. unto Thos. 
AWDELEY of London, gent, her farm of Balloxley and lands in North 
Cheneton, alias North Neweton, from 1621 for 30 years, his title to 
same was settled upon sd. Francis HANBERY, who about I July, 18 
James, demised same to Wm. GOULDWYRE of Summerford, co. South'- 
ton, gent, for term of 21 years under a yearly rent of .19 9 8. That 
W. G. paid sd. rent until death of oratrix's father, who died about 
13 Mar. in 8th year of H.M.'s reign deceased (sic) whereupon right 
etc. of sd. premises by sd. letters patent came upon your oratrix. 
Since Michaelmas the iyth year of H.M's reign that now is, when sd. 
term of 21 years did end, sd. G. hath refused to pay rent and hath got 
into his hands the sd. writings. Prays writ of subpoena. 

Defendant W. G., knows of no such Letters Patent. Denies that 
HANBERY made him any such lease. HANBURY, pretending such 
Letters Patent, did on I July 18 James, demise farm of Balloxley, and 


lands called Bolts, Courtelands, and the Moore, unto W. G. late of 
Somerford, gent, this defendant's father since deceased, for 21 years. 
Sd. father bequeathed his interest to this defendant and made him and 
his sister Charitie joint executors of his will, and afterwards, c. 18 Dec. 
6 Chas., died. This defendant purchased from Richard FENNE, alias 
VENN, citizen and alderman of London, since deceased, the lord and 
fee farmer of the manor of Somerford, a further term and estate of and 
in sd. farm of Balloxley etc. by Indenture dated 18 June, 8 Chas., 
directed to John BUTTON of Buckland, co. Southt' Esqr, Henry TULSE

this defendant's nominees, etc. Prays to be dismissed. (P.R.O. 
Chan, plead. Luke v. Goldwyer, 1646.) 

1650. Jan. 31. John HILDSLEY of Hinton Admirall, co. South'- 
ton, Esq. and Margaret his wife, administratrix of goods, etc. of Henry 
TULSE late of Hinton, Esq. deceased, former husband of sd. Margaret, 
John BUTTON of Buckland, Esq. Thomas HUSSEY of Hungerford, Berks, 
Esq. and Thomas HOOPER of Southampton, gent, complain that 
whereas King Henry VIII. being seized in fee of Priory of Christ- 
church Twineham, etc. by Letters Patent I Mar. 33rd of his reign, 
granted to Dean etc. of Winchester, the rectory etc. of pish ch. of 
Christchurch etc. That the Dean etc. by Indenture 25 Nov. 1641 
granted to TULSE and HOOPER sd. rectory etc. (with the profits of the 
Easterbooke and the fishings called Christ's share only excepted) for 21 
years at yearly rent of .58 and .8 to vicar of Christchurch Twineham. 
That TULSE to sever the joint estate, so granted, did by Indenture 
20 Jan. 1640 grant to orators BUTTON, HUSSEY, & HILDSLEY, and to one 
Stephen CONSTANTINE, clerk, since deceased, his moiety of sd. rectory 
etc. for the residue of sd. term in trust for TULSE for life and after his 
decease for oratrix Margaret. That there are certain tythes in Somer- 
ford belonging to Christchurch. That one Wm. GOLDWIRE of 
Somerford, gent, who hath enjoyed and occupied Somerford demesnes 
and taken the whole profits thereof ever since 25 Nov. 1641, pretend- 
ing to have some estate of inheritance and taking advantage of the dis- 
traction of the times, doth refuse to accompt with your orators for the 
tithes of wool, lamb, calves, piggs, geese and all other privy tithes, etc. 
Pray writ of subpoena. 

Defendant utterly denies that Dean & Chapter of Winchester or 
any of their farmers or tenants of the parsonage impropriate of 
Christchurch Twynham did ever receive the tithe hay or any part 
thereof, and as for the tithe of wool, etc. he said that Richard FENNE, 
alias VENNE, citizen & alderman of London, being seized of the manor 
of Somerford and tithes, granted them 18 June, 8 Chas. I to BUTTON, 
dead) granted them by Indenture 25 June, 19 Chas. I. to this defen- 
dant. Prays to be dismissed. 


The Replicacon of John HILDESLEY etc. to answer of Wm. GOLD- 
WIRE. They maintain matters complained of etc. (P.R.O. Chan. 
B & A. Hildesley v. Goldwyer, 1650.) 

4. 1669. June 1 6. Edward GOLDWYER of Milton, co. South'ton, 
gent., Walter GODDARD of Barnsley in Wimborne, Dorset, gent, and 
William RUSSELL of Barnsley, gent, complain that one William NORRIS 
of Ringwood, gent., addressed himself to Rebecca GOLDWYER, sister of 
Edward, and a marriage between them was accordingly solemnized. 
That Wm. GOLDWYER of Somerford, father of Rebecca, was not well 
pleased therewith yet was prevailed with to promise her 20 a year for 
life and being ancient made his son Edward, and GODDARD and RUSSELL, 
his kindred and relations, his trustees who were bound by an obligation, 
dated 27 April 1653, to make quarterly payments of .5 at the Crown 
Inn, Ringwood. That payments were made from time to time until 
some differences happening between NORRIS & Rebecca the sd. NORRIS 
hath forbid yr. orator to pay any more to sd. Rebecca and sues orator 
on sd. bond. That he denies payment of .3 10 o to himself at 
orator Edward's house in Bughly, i 18 o to his son William 
NORRIS, etc. Prays writ of subpoena. 

The answers of Wm. NORRIS clerk, & Rebecca his wife. 

That a marriage was solemnized between them about 22 years 
since and that .20 a year was to be marriage portion of Rebecca. Deny 
that it was to befor Rebecca's sole use or that William had any doubts of 
the ill consequences of sd. marriage or that the complainant obligors 
might elecl; to which of sd. parties they would pay the same; or that there 
hath happened any such differences between these defendants as in 
sd. Bill are untruly suggested. Are willing to allow 7 certain payments 
to have been made but that the sum of three score pounds is still un- 
paid. Pray to be discharged. (P.R.O. Chan. B & A. Goldwire v. 
Norris, 1669.)

great strength of mind, unwearied and inexhaustible industry in per-

National works bear testimony to his skill as a builder, and many of 
the improvements which have greatly benefited this parish originated 
with him. He was an affectionate husband, an indulgent parent, the 
friend of the industrious poor, the enemy of no man.

each month, at 2 p.m., being the day and hour now fixed for meeting. Meetings 
of Fellows to elect new Fellows are held on the same day and at the same place, 
at 3.30 p.m. On the I3th March it was resolved to make a bid on behalf of 
the Society for Linton's Gretna Hall Marriage Registers, 1825-44, with the 
original certificates of marriage, signed by the parties, and an Index. These 
were to be put up at auction at Sotheby's on the 29th March, and a circular 
accordingly was sent to every Member asking for subscriptions, with the result 
that the Society was in a position to bid 190. The lot was sold, however, for 
420. At the meeting on 8th May the Executive Committee learned, with 
regret, of the transfer of the Archdeaconry of Richmond Wills from London 
to York, and a resolution was passed urging the authorities not to make further 
transfers of ancient records from London, where they are chiefly required for 
purposes of research. Amendments were proposed to Sections 4 and 28 of the 
Welsh Disestablishment Bill now before Parliament, in reference to Welsh 
records, and copies were to be sent to the proper quarter. 

In our Annual Report for 1912 there will be an alphabetical list of the families, 
places, and matters in which our Members are personally interested. Fellows 
only are entitled to special quarterly advices as to matter accrued to the Society's 
collections of personal interest to themselves, but ordinary Members, Associates, 
and Corresponding Associates may have as many as Jive such " interests " entered 
in the printed alphabetical list, notification of which should be sent to the 
Hon. Secretary at once. A favourable opportunity is presented to intending 
Members to put up for election at the next meeting (July loth), so that their names 
and " interests" may be in time for inclusion in this year's Annual Report. 

Committee on the Library, printed volumes. The Accessions List enumerates 
376 items, nearly all received by gift. The privilege of borrowing books is 
one that should be to members most useful and interesting, as many of the 
volumes are unobtainable elsewhere. We have added a number of Record 
Office publications to our collection. 

Committee on the Library, MS. volumes. The following volumes in MS. 
have been received: Pedigrees of Peers and others, temp. Elizabeth. MS. bound 
in vellum, oblong, 6 inches by 8 inches; 234 folios. Presented by the Rev d . 
E. H. BURTON, D.D. A Copy of the Parish Register of St. Tudy, CORNWALL, 
baptisms and burials, 1559-1812. Transcribed by Mrs. GLENCROSS. Lent by 

Committee on the Library, Documents. A very large number of original docu- 
ments as well as abstracts has been received, and voluntary help is urgently 
needed in the work of cataloguing them on the " envelope system." Abstracts 
of 234 wills relating principally to the families of BANGER (5), BEALE (n), FRENCH 
(6), STREET (38), WOODIN (8), and YARWORTH (9), were presented by Mr. Oswald 
Greenwaye KNAPP. A large collection of Original Deeds (about 2,500) relating 
to the eastern portion of KENT and dating from the end of the I4th century 
to the igth century was presented by a firm of solicitors. 

Committee on the Consolidated Index. The work on the Consolidated Index 
progresses steadily, all the letters of the alphabet having been now, for the first 
time, properly sorted out, thus making the collection as a whole available for 
consultation. The number of index-slips, apart from the COOKSON collection, is 
approximately 79,440. The Society's important scheme for indexing the 
Marriage Licences in the Bishop of London's Registry is methodically being 
taken in hand, some six or seven members of the Society now being engaged in the 
writing out and arrangement of the slips concerned. The work of indexing 
large collections like the Marriage Licences and also the Wills of the Prerogative 
Court is still, however, held back by the want of contributors, but progress is 
nevertheless being made, and it is hoped that the difficulty will be overcome by 



an increased membership of the Society, and also as the result of a special appeal 
to present members drawn up by the Society's Hon. Secretary, and now being 
circulated among them. 

Committee for Cataloguing Pedigrees. The pedigrees contained in the follow- 
ing printed works have been catalogued on index slips and the slips sorted into the 
Consolidated Index: 

Harleian Society's Publications, vols. 50 to 55. 
The Genealogist, New Series, vols. 18 to 24. 
The Ancestor, vols. 2 to 12. 
Misc. Gen. et Heraldica, 4th Series, vol. i. 
CRISP'S Visitations oj England and Wales, 

vols. i to 13; and Notes, vols. I to 6. 
The Genealogical Magazine, vols. 5 to end. 

Manuscript copies of the following pedigrees from the Public Records have 
been presented by the Rev d . T. C. DALE: 
BOOTH of Gilligate, co. Durham. 
BRASSE of Brasserton, co. Durham. 
CLARKE of Great Lumley, co. Durham. 
DALE of St. Bee's and Egremont, Cumberland.

sented by Mr. G. Rutter FLETCHER. A manuscript pedigree of CLARK of Moulton, 
co. Lincoln, was presented by Mr. Campbell M.WYNNE. A number of printed 
accounts of old Philadelphia families was presented by Mrs. M. Stanton TAYLOR. 
Committee on Monumental Inscriptions. The Society is indebted to Mr. R. H. 
STEPHENSON for copies of inscriptions at Stretton Magna, Little Stretton, and 
Burrough on the Hill, LEICESTERSHIRE, with index-slips written for the 
same; to Mr. G. P. TOWNEND for copies from the Chapel yard of Thornton in 
Bradford, YORKSHIRE (261 pp.); to Mr. J. Edwin BATESON for copies from 
the churchyards of Aston Tirrold, St. Mary le More, Wallingford, and Mouls- 
ford, BERKS, Checkendon, Nuffield, North Stoke, South Stoke and Woodcote, 
OXON, and Caen, NORMANDY. We are glad to enter on our index-slips the 
name of any parish whose inscriptions have been copied and information as to 
where copies are to be found. 

Mr. Arthur Weight MATTHEWS presented two charming little volumes con- 
taining, in manuscript, copies of inscriptions in the following DORSETSHIRE 
churchyards: Allington, Askerswell, Beaminster, Bothenhampton, Bradpole, 
Bridport, Chideock, Eype, Loders, Lyme Regis, Netherbury, Puncknole, Shipton 
Gorge, Swyre, Symondsbury, and Walditch. A third contains inscriptions in 
STAFFORDSHIRE and WARWICKSHIRE churchyards as follows: In STAF- 
FORDSHIRE: Armitage (Independent), Drayton Bassett, Edingale, Farewell, 
Harlaston, Lichfield (St. Chad's and St. Michael's), Longdon, Rugeley, Shinstone 
and Whittington. In WARWICKSHIRE : Ansley, Baddesley, Berkswell, Bicken-

A collection of 94 inscriptions, carefully copied (verb, et lit.) from rubbings of 
Monumental Brasses in the counties of Bedford, Buckingham, Gloucester, 
Lincoln, Norfolk, Somerset and Carnarvon, with an Index of Names, was pre- 
sented by Mr. Frank M. CURTIS.

Committee on Fly-leaf Inscriptions in Family Bibles. The Hon. Secretary 
(Revd. J. L. E. HOOPPELL) reports that he has in preparation a blank form of 
Family Register to take the place of the, often unsatisfactory, method of record- 
ing vital facts in the Family Bible. Original fly-leaves and copies of entries on 
fly-leaves have been received concerning the following families : SANDEMAN, FULLER; 

Committee on Family Associations. The following have been added to the 
list, and steps are being taken to obtain details: The BICKNELL Family Association,

research professionally will be distinguished by an asterisk in the Annual Report 
now in preparation. Such Members are invited to send their names at once to

Bromley College at Bromley in Kent, ten miles from London, the largest and 
most ancient foundation for clergymen's widows in England, was founded in 
1666, by John WARNER, Bishop of Rochester (of whom there is a very fine por- 
trait in the Chaplain's house), for the residence and support of the widows of 
loyal and orthodox clergymen. The original endowment was augmented by 
many subsequent benefactions and at the present time there are resident in the 
college forty-five ladies; i.e. forty houses for widows, and five houses for un- 
married daughters who have lived with their mothers in the College. I am per- 
mitted to take this transcript of the Register of Admissions and Deaths by the 
Chaplain, the Revd. James WHITE, M.A., to whom I express my obligations.

MORLEY, Esq., of Glendore, Camden Park, Tunbridge Wells. 


(Hofe0 t Queries anb 

THE EXCISE. From the time of Charles II. to the beginning of the nine- 
teenth century, the duties from the Excise were granted to and formed part of 
the revenue of the Crown. 

The head office was in London and the head officers Commissioners, were 
appointed by the King. 

The Officers in the Excise were Commissioners, Collectors, Supervisors, 
Examiners and Gagers. In the year 1796 England and Wales were divided into 
49 "Collections." Each "Collection," of which a " Colledor " was head, 
was divided into " districts "; each " District," of which a Supervisor was head, 
was divided into " out-rides," and " foot-walks," presided over by a " Gager " 
or " Officer." 

When anyone wished to enter the service he had to petition the Commissioners 
for an order that he might be instructed in his duties and take an oath. He 
paid nothing to be instructed. He had to send his Baptismal Certificate, 
showing he was 21 years of age and under 30, had to pass an examination and 
show that he was free from debt, and, if married, had not more than two chil- 
dren. " Two persons to be bound with him sufficient to answer 200 for the 
due execution of his office." " The petitioner to get a certificate and recommen- 
dation signed by so many gentlemen as he can and well affected to the Govern- 
ment." Though an applicant had an order to be instructed, "yet if the 
petitioner cannot obtain the countenance of some gentleman (a Member of 
Parliament is best) that is personally acquainted with one of the Commissioners 
to remind them his petition will certainly come to nothing." 

I give a copy of an officer's commission. " To all to whom these shall come, 
greeting, know ye that we whose hands and seals are hereunto set being the major 
part of the Chief Commissioners and Governors for the management of the 
Receipt of the Excise . . . reposing especial trust and confidence in the knowledge, 
skill, industry, integrity, fidelity and circumspection of A.B., gentleman, have 
nominated and appointed and for his majesty's service do nominate and constitute 
him the said A.B. to be one of the surveyors, messengers, gagers and officers . . . 
The office during the pleasure of us the said present commissioners. . . . Given 

under our hand and seal at the chief office of Excise and for the said duties 
in ................... this .......... day ........ in the year of our Sove- 

reign Lord George, by the grace of God, of Great Britain, France and Ireland, 
King, Defender of the Faith, Annoque Domini 174-. 

(Signed) [by five Commissioners]." 

Before an applicant could take office he had to take the oath of office, allegiance 
and supremacy, and six months after his admission take the oath and subscribe 
the declaration against Transubstantiation at the Quarter Sessions. If he acted 
before taking the oaths he would forfeit 50 a month. 

The Minute Books have recently been moved from Somerset House to the 
Library at the Custom House, Lower Thames Street, London. They are 
complete, and date back to 1695. The Establishment Books date back to 1789. 
The study of the Minute Books (each contains an alphabetical index) proves that 
the officers were frequently moved from place to place, and the books are a 


record of every appointment. There are three Lists of Officers holding com- 
missions in the years 1688, 1689 and 1694 in the British Museum. (Harleian 
MSS. 7428, 7424-7427, 7431.) 

The best account of appointments to the Excise, before the Excise was 
altered at the beginning of the nineteenth century, is to be found in The Royal 
Ganger by Charles LEADBETTER, 1743. In that year there were nearly 3,000 
persons holding Commissions, namely 

9 Commissioners. 
49 Collectors. 
190 Supervisors. 
2700 Officers.

The outstanding features of this new series of printed Parish Registers are, 
firstly, the quantity of matter which can be given for half-a-guinea ; secondly, 
the fact that the copy is brought up to 1837, when general registration in 
England and Wales began (the proper date for printed copies to finish); and, 
thirdly, the excellent index. It may be added that a small map of the adjacent

The BOYNE Peerage Case. A family episode of the XFIIIth century. By the 
Rev. Wm. Ball WRIGHT, M.A. (reprinted from The Genealogical Magazine of 
1900). York. (Yorkshire Printing Co., Ltd., Hull Road, 1912) 8vo. pp. 16. is. 6d. 

This is a most interesting account, with portraits, showing how, apparently by 
carelessness or worse, the title of Viscount BOYNE was lost to a branch of the 
HAMILTON family. It is accompanied by a pedigree of the Lords BELLEW of 
Duleek from temp. William the Conqueror to 1770, and a Report of a general 
search in Ulster's office, with observations by Mr. G. D. BURTCHAELL, M.R.I.A., 
Athlone Pursuivant.

jbcottizfy jjfamifg in 

A writer in Notes and Queries remarked, in 1860 (2nd series, X. 99), 
that the Earls of GOSFORD took their title from an estate that their 
ancestors in the direct line had never possessed. 

That there ever existed in Ireland a branch of the ACHESON family 
diredlly so descended no one seems to have noticed. 

No history of the ACHESON family in Scotland has hitherto been 
written, nor is it known for certain what was the immediate ancestry 
of Sir Archibald, the first baronet. On the strength of his funeral 
certificate he is described as a son of Captain Patrick ACHESON, but 
nothing further is known about the last-named. He is assumed to 
have been a younger brother of Alexander ACHESON, the first of 
Gosf ord, but no proof of this has been found. 

It is from this Alexander that the family of which this article 
treats traces descent. 

I. Alexander ACHESON purchased Gosf ord in Haddington in 1577 
(Register of Scottish Deeds, vol. 64). He married Helen REID. His 
Edinburgh will is dated 21 Feb. 1606; that of his widow 15 July 1614. 
Their children were : 

(i.) George, of Gosf ord in 1605. His natural son, Mark, was 
apprenticed to William NEMOCK, tailor, 4 Dec. 1605. 

(2.) Alexander, of whom presently. 

(3.) Helen, who married, first, Gavin HOME of Johnscleugh (con- 
tract dated 28 Jan. 1598) and had issue Alexander HOME, 
later of Johnscleugh. Her second husband was Robert 
HOME, the younger of Heuche, who was living in 1620, when 
she executed a deed, to which Sir Archibald ACHESON, 
advocate, was a witness, and Sir John HOME of Berwick, 
kt., a party. 

II. Alexander ACHESON succeeded to his father's estate of Gosford 
in 1605. He married Elizabeth (or Isabella) DOUGLAS, daughter of 
the laird of Bonejedward (Adi of Parliament 1633 and Betham- 
Phillips MS.). With his son and heir-apparent, Alexander, he was 
cautioner in a bond dated I June 1616 (vol. 273). He sold Gosford, 
and in 1633 Sir John ACHMOOTIE was enfeoffed of it. (A61 of Park. 



1633.) The children of Alexander and Elizabeth ACHESON then 
living were : 

(i.) Alexander, 

(2.) William, of whom presently, 
(3.) Patrick, and 

(4). Jean, who married Cornelius AINSLEY, advocate, Edinburgh, 
and had a son, Archibald. 

III. William ACHESON, the second son, obtained a grant of lands in 
Co. Wexford from King James I. (Betham-Phillips MS.). At the 
time of the rebellion, in 1641, he became Lt.-Colonel in Sir William 
COLE'S Regiment of Foot, at Enniskillen, afterwards commanding a 
regiment of his own. 

He married Jean CRANSTOUN, who survived him, and married 
secondly, , HUME. Colonel ACHESON died at Skeagh, Co. Fer- 
managh; his will is dated 4 November 1656, and was proved in the 
Prerogative Court of Dublin. From proceedings in connection with 
the proving it appears that he had been resident in Ireland from 1632, 
or earlier, and his wife from 1626, or earlier. He left his property to 
his wife and children : 

(i.) Alexander, of whom presently, 

(2.) George, buried at Enniskillen 28 Jan. 1668-9. 

(i.) Agnes. 

He appointed as overseers, Major Hugh Ross, Captain Adam 
CATHCART, and Captain Patrick HUME. 

IV. Alexander ACHESON, his only surviving son, is mentioned in a 
book by my friend the Rev. H. B. SWANZY, The Family of Hassard, to 
which I am indebted for a part of what follows. 

Alexander ACHESON became a captain in Colonel Abraham CREIGH- 
TON'S Regiment of Foot. He served as High Sheriff of the county of 
Fermanagh in 1703, and made his will 23 Sept. 1707, which was proved 
23 Feb. 1710-1. He married Catherine, daughter of Nicholas 
MONTGOMERY, of Blessingbourne, reclor of Carrickmacross (see 
Alexander's will and Burke's Landed Gentry}. In Cleenish church 
may still be seen a tombstone creeled by himself to the memory of 
himself, his wife and children. 

There is a Royal Letter to Captain ACHESON, dated 29 Jan. 1702, 
preserved in the Record Tower of Dublin Castle. 

Sir Nicholas ACHESON, fourth baronet, left him, in his will dated 
8 Nov. 1701, a mourning ring. Sir Nicholas was present with Captain 
ACHESON at the siege of Enniskillen. 

He was survived, in 1707, by the following children, all then minors : 

(i .) George, eldest son, who died young (probably). 
(2.) Alexander, of whom presently. 


(i.) Sarah, 

*(z.) Ann, who married Henry CRAWFORD, of Millwood (Marriage 
License Bond 1718). He was High Sheriff in 1738. For 
their children see Lord BELMORE'S History of the Corry 

(3.) Catherine, who married, in 1743, George NIXON, of Nixon 
Hall, Fermanagh, and had issue. Her daughter married a 

(4.) Mary, who, in 1720, married William HASSARD, of Skea. 

V. Alexander ACHESON, of Corrard, Co. Fermanagh, married (1724) 
Angel, elder daughter of William RICHARDSON, of Springtown, Co. 
Tyrone, by his wife, daughter of William WRAY, of Ards, Co. Donegal, 
by Angel, second daughter of Colonel James GALBRAITH, M.P. for 
Strabane, 1639. 

On 1 8 Feb. 1745, Alexander ACHESON filed a Chancery Bill against 
his brother-in-law Henry CRAWFORD, and another, in which he com- 
plained that " in 1734 he unfortunately fell into the habit of excessive 
drinking of strong and spirituous liquors, which by degrees increased 
to such a height as greatly to impair his reason, senses and understand- 
ing, in so much that your suppliant was for many years incapable of 
transacting business with any common degree of reason or understand- 
ing. Further, that Henry CRAWFORD . . . having intermarried with 
your suppliant's sister, and being resident in your suppliant's neigh- 
bourhood, and having an old acquaintance and intimacy with your 
suppliant, and having by degrees brought himself entirely into your 
suppliant's confidence and esteem, said Crawford found a scheme of 
getting said estate into his hands, and for that end supplied your 
suppliant from time to time with small sums of money, the better to 
continue in his course of excessive drinking . . . and got into possession 
of a great part of your suppliant's estate . . . said Crawford, having 
carried his designs into execution, in manner above-mentioned, and 
refusing to supply your suppliant with money to buy strong liquor as 
he had formerly done, your suppliant being scarce able to afford the 
necessaries of life for himself and his family, much less to support 
himself in his former course of drinking, by degrees recovered his 

It is not surprising to find CRAWFORD in his answer putting a totally 
different complexion on the matter. 

(To be continued?) 

* O'HART wrongly states that Catherine, daughter of Col. Alexander ACHESON (younger 
son of Sir Arthur, 5th Bart.), married Henry CRAWFORD. Sir Arthur had no such brother, 
and CRAWFORD married Ann ACHESON. 



The manor of Malveysin Berwick, Berwick Mavesyn, or in its 
modern corrupted form, Berwick Maviston, lying near the banks of 
the Severn, within the parish of Atcham, in Salop, was the chief of the 
Shropshire fees granted as a reward for his knighthood in the conquest 
of England by William the CONQUEROR to his companion, Walter de 
MALVOISIN, or MALVEYSIN, whose name stands recorded in the famous 
Roll of Battle Abbey. Here, for many generations, the senior line of 
his blood, lords of Berwick Mavesyn, flourished, " in the days of our 
Henrys and Edwards, a knightly, gallant, race, in the age of gallantry; 
foremost, like their Norman kindred, in deeds of arms and works of 
piety " (SHAW, Hist, of Staff.) until, in the time of Henry IV, John 
MAVESYN, the last of his house, was slain in a skirmish following a 
hunting-match, on the Wrekin. John MAVESYN was succeeded by 
Edith, his niece, twelfth in descent from MALVEYSIN, the CONQUEROR'S 
knight, the only child of his dead brother Adam, and by her marriage 
with Thomas WHITCOMBE (some notes of whose ancestry have already 
appeared in The Pedigree Register, Vol. II., pp. 52-57), the lordship 
passed to a branch of the family of WHITCOMBE, or WYDECOMBE, of 
Martock in Somerset. 

In like manner, Mary, the elder daughter and ultimate sole heir of 
Richard WHITCOMBE of Berwick Mavesyn, conveyed the estate to 
Thomas GRANT of Hambrook in the county of Gloucester, esquire. 
They were succeeded by their son Richard, whose son and heir, Richard 
GRANT, esquire, sold his ancient heritage, in 1777, to Thomas HILL, 
of Tern Hill, ancestor of the present Lord BERWICK. 

The alienator of Berwick Mavesyn left at his death, in 1788, four 
daughters and co-heirs, of whom the eldest married Sir Cornelius 
CUYLER, bart., and their great grandson, Sir Charles CUYLER, is the 
senior co-heir general of the families of MAVESYN, WHITCOMBE and 

With the possible exception of Francis WHITCOMBE (b. at Atcham, 
1629), of London, of whom there is no record that he married or had 
issue, and of Francis and Mavesyn WHITCOMBE, the son and grandson of 
the third William of Berwick (1611-1696), both of whom are believed 
to have died in childhood, the male descendants of Francis WHIT- 
COMBE are extinct; for the Uppington WHITCOMBES have also expired. 
Next in seniority are the descendants of Edward WHITCOMBE of the 
Morrey whose present heir male is Philip Sidney WHITCOMBE of New 
Zealand, esquire; perhaps the heir male of all the Shropshire WHIT- 
COMBES. Their pedigree, as shown in the following pages, is perfectly 
complete, though there may be some doubt as to John, son of the said 
Edward, who is stated to have died without issue. 

The descendants of John WHITCOMBE of London, fourth son of 
William II, of Berwick, are lost in the maze of London's greatness. 


John, the son of Thomas IV, of Berwick, lived and died at Atcham, 
and as there are no records of his children found in the registers or 
elsewhere, I conclude he had none. There may be descendants of 
Richard and Robert, sons of William I, but if there are they are cer- 
tainly impossible to trace. I know no other children than those here 
recorded of the first two Thomases, nor whether the third Thomas 
had other issue than those named, whereof even Hugo and John are not 
placed beyond doubt : it appears likely that Hugo died without issue.

Edmund SHALLETT is said to have come out of Oxfordshire, but that, 
no doubt, was but a passing sojourn, and he was really descended from 
the SHALLETTS of Bosham near Chichester. 

The family was probably of French or Swiss origin, and cannot be 
traced in England earlier than the end of the fifteenth century. 

There exists still in Exton, Hampshire, a field called " The Shalletts," 
which marks the site of their old home, since pulled down. 

All baptisms, etc., in this pedigree, where not otherwise stated, 
refer to Exton. Meonstoke is the adjoining parish. 

The last Edmond SHALLETT was of Sutton Place, Surrey; but Mr. 
Frederic HARRISON informs me this is not the well-known Tudor 
residence of Lord NORTHCLIFFE, but some other of the same name. 
Saving some 600 given in legacies, all his property came to the LOMAX 
family; and from them, three generations later, to Lord ABINGER. 

The younger branch of the family mostly resided in Stepney and in 
Clapham, Surrey, where most of them were buried. They exhibited 
strong nonconformist tendencies. 

In 1694 Arthur SHALLETT was appointed one of the Commissioners 
of the Lieutenancy for the City of London. He traded much in coal 
from Newcastle-on-Tyne and in wine and soap from Barcelona, in 
partnership with Gilbert HEATH COTE, and had a factory in Barcelona. 
His name occurs in the list of merchants who petitioned the House of 
Lords for a charter for the East India Company. His brother Joseph 
had lands in Harting parish, Sussex, under John CARILL. Doubtless 
these were the lands which one William SHALLETT sold to John CARILL 
in 1648. In his will (1712) he mentions certain nephews and nieces 
whom I have been unable to trace. These include Daniel SHALLETT, 
Edmund BLUNKETT and his wife, Herbert and Mary HUGHES, Elis 
GARDINER, Ann OSBORNE, John and Frances COLTMAN and Mary 
CARFOOT, John WOODS and his wife, John DALE and Frances his wife. 

Arthur SHALLETT was a nonconformist minister in 1712 and a 
merchant of London. He left 1,000 as a fund for poor dissenting 
ministers, and 200 to the Gravel Lane School, Southwark. He had 
property and lands in Bennett Street in the parish of Christchurch, 
Surrey. He also left 250 to Peter DALE, son of his cousin Frances 

Another branch of the SHALLETT family was living at the same time 
in Somerset.

Of the retiring members of the Executive Committee, Messrs BEACHCROFT,

TROUBRIDGE was elected to serve in the room of Mr. BEACHCROFT. 


The Executive Committee met in the Society's Rooms on I2th June, loth 
July, and I4th August, the second Wednesday in each month, at 2 p.m. Meetings 
of Fellows to elect new Fellows are held on the same day and at the same place, 
at 3.30 p.m. On the I2th June the resignation of Mr. BEACHCROFT from the 
Executive Committee was accepted with regret. Mr. HOLWORTHY offered to 
prepare for the Society's use a Calendar of Chancery Proceedings, Elizabeth, 
being those documents in Series I. omitted from the official calendar. The offer 
was gratefully accepted, and a Committee formed to arrange for the work to be 
printed. It is proposed to print in parts of 24 pp., at 35. 6d. per part to Asso- 
ciates, Corresponding Associates and the public. Some discussion took place on 
the question of the formation of an Examining Committee to give advice on 
the method of tracing pedigrees. 

On loth July the Report of the Committee of the Law Society on the subject 
of the Custody of Parish Registers was read. A form of application to land- 
owners, inviting them to deposit with or give to the Society ancient deeds for 
which they had no further use, was read and approved of. On the I4th August 
a clerk was engaged to assist the Librarian- Secretary. Members are invited 
to attend on the days of the Monthly Meetings, at 3.45 to 5 o'clock, a round- 
table conference to discuss genealogical problems, expeiiences and suggestions. 

In compliance with a petition, signed in 1910 by a number of literary inquirers, 
the President of the Probate Division has ordered the Literary Research Depart- 
ment at Somerset House to remain open during the Long Vacation, with the 
exception of ten days, when it will be closed for cleaning purposes the hours 
ii till 3; on Saturdays 10 till I. It has not been found possible to comply 
with a request by this Society that copies of all such printed Calendars of 
ancient probate records as are obtainable should be placed on the open shelves, 


but an effort will be made, it is understood, to obtain, for public use, copies 
of printed calendars and lists of ancient documents actually in the Principal 
Registry. GEORGE SHERWOOD (Hon. Secretary). 

(1) Committee on the Library, printed -volumes. The Accessions List enumerates 
414 items, nearly all received by gift. The thanks of the Society are due to the 
donors and the gifts are much appreciated. 

(2) Committee on the Library, MS. volumes. From Mr. GLEN CROSS we have 
received a volume in MS. containing a collection of Pedigrees from Wills, etc., 
including the families of KNOX, GORGES and PETER (pp. 53, size 8 by I2|). A book 
entitled Quarto Miscellanea, volume I, has been provided for the reception of 
" stray notes." Forty pages have thus been filled with memoranda concerning 
principally of Ireland. 

(3) Committee on the Library, Documents. From Mr. Oswald Greenwaye 
KNAPP we have received about 200 abstracts of Wills, Deeds, etc., relating princi- 
WHEATE. Also additions and corrections to BURKE'S Armoury concerning the 
armorial bearings of BOSTOCK and KNAPP. From Dr. T. H. PRESTON: Extracts 
concerning PRESTON of Norfolk, from the MSS. of Anthony NORRIS, antiquary

Granted at Prague 24 October 1581. Certified at Breslau 10 November 1586. 
The Society is glad to file any list of documents, long or short, relating to any 
family or place, provided it is clearly shown where such documents are to be 
seen. Lists should each be confined to one particular surname or one particular 
place. The collection of KENT deeds is being arranged under parishes. 

E. F. KIRK (Hon. Secretary). 

(4) Committee on the Consolidated Index. The work accomplished during the 
last quarter will find incidental mention in the summary for the year included 
in the Annual Report of the Society in the section dealing with this Committee. 
Some interest, however, attaches to the miscellaneous items sent in during the 
last few months, which deal with an uncommon source of reference, viz. old 
lists of persons subscribing to books, mainly of the i8th and first half of the igih 
century. The writing of these index slips is comparatively easy work, and such 
references are useful as supplying details of the addresses, and one may add 
tastes of individuals, at a time when books were more frequently published on 
the " subscription " basis. These names also supplement the omissions of the 
early directories, and it is much to be desired that such a list, for example, as that 
prefacing LEWIS'S Topographical Dictionary of England, should be written on 
slips for the Society. This list contains the names and addresses of some 12,000 
people living all over England in 1831, and is probably the longest of its kind. 

It should be noted that there has been a gratifying increase in the number of 
slips in the Place Index, though this part of the collection is still somewhat 
neglected, and probably does not at present number more than 12,000 slips.

(7) Committee for Cataloguing Pedigrees, From Mr. Edmund LUCAS we have 
received a MS. pedigree of LUCAS of Wootton Wawen, Warwickshire; from 
Messrs. STOKES and Cox a MS. pedigree, on parchment (29$ by 28^), of 
BARNSLEY of Worcestershire, London, etc., eleven generations to c. 1800; from 
Mr. GLENCROSS a MS. book of pedigrees referred to herein by the Secretary of 
the Committee on the Library MS. volumes; from the Revd. Edward COOK- 
SON, M.A., copies of pedigrees of COOKSON of Penrith, Cumberland, and of 
TEMPEST (large sheets). A list of the pedigrees, estimated at between three and 
four thousand, contained in DAVY'S Suffolk Collection in the British Museum 
(Add. MSS.), is being incorporated in the Consolidated Index. A " Pedigree 
Analysis Form " is being sent this quarter to every Member of the Society.

is a charter, dated 1464, which mentions Johannes ESTOTE. This charter con- 
cerns the manor of South Charford, the next parish to Breamore. Other Hamp- 
shire variants of the name are STOT, STOTTE, STOITE, STOATE and STOOTE, but the 
most persistent form is STOTE. I suppose " le stot " would easily become 
" estote " and " stote." 

I should be very glad of any hint of the origin of Thomas STOTE of Breamore 
(died 1556). I have no note of him before- 1534. 

The will of John STOTE IV. of Lyndhurst was proved in the Bishop's Court at 
Winchester in 1580, and has an interesting inventory attached. This inventory 
mentions " cart timber " and a " sheffe of arroos." Is this an indication that he 
too was a customary tenant and a. forest official? What is a " porsnett "? And 
what is " the trine vessell "? The acreage under cultivation agrees well with 
the known acreage of " Stotes," the customary tenancy which the extant Court 
Rolls prove to have been " in the family " from 1661 till the end of the eighteenth 

I am most anxious to hear of any Lyndhurst Court Records before 1660, or any 
other Records of minor Forest Officials of the sixteenth and early seventeenth 
centuries if they are in existence. 

The line of George STOTE I. seems to have been continued at Milford and 
Hordle, on the edge of the New Forest ; but beyond the coincidences of names of 
wife and children I as yet lack evidence to identify the George STOTE of Lynd- 
hurst, who married Mary PITT at Boldre in 1721, with the George STOTE and 
Mary, whose children are baptized at Milford soon after that date. " George 
STOTE the elder " was buried at Milford 24 August 1770. Philip STOTE was 
buried there in 1771 and George STOTE junior in 1803. The name Rebecca, as 
mother of George STOTE I., and daughter of George STOTE the elder of Milford, 
is another link in this chain that I want to make stronger. 

Can it be proved that the line of Thomas STOTE of Eling was continued in two 
branches, one at Romsey till the Commonwealth, and another at Ringwood, 
which seems to have been extinguished by smallpox in the early eighteenth cen- 
tury? I have these and other fragmentary early pedigrees which I should be 
pleased to communicate if desired.

Whatever was the result of the litigation, the family never recovered 
from the blow to its fortunes dealt by Alexander's unlucky character. 
His children : 
(i.) George, 
(2.) William, and 

(i.) Letitia, filed a bill (while still minors) in the Exchequer 
Court, 28 Oct. 1742, against their parents and others. 

Henceforward we find no trace of them, unless we are to identify 
with Alexander's son, one William ACHESON, who in 1776 and 1781 
was defending, with his wife Mary ATFIELD, of the Co. Clare, a 
Chancery action brought by the executors of Hull ATFIELD. (Repertory 
of Decrees, v. 89.) 

The Betham-Phillips MS. History of Fermanagh gives the follow- 
ing arms as belonging to Captain Alexander ACHESON : 

" This family beareth in their atchievmts. and ensigne Armorial, 
Argent, an Eagle displayed wth. 2 heads sable, but now he gives ye 
eagle surmounted on ye breast of an inescutcheon argent, chargd. with 
a saltire sable, two spurs ravell or; For ye crest A cock standing on a 
trumpet proper. For ye motto Vigilantibus, &c." 

The description is a little hard to follow, and I believe that there is 
no record in Ulster's office of a coat exactly answering to it. 

Tombstones of ACHESONS with somewhat similar arms are found at 
Templecarne (Pettigo) on the borders of Donegal and Fermanagh, 
including one dated 1765. 

These ACHESONS are found at Pettigo as early as 1681, when the 
intestate estate of Patrick ACHESON, gentleman, was administered by 
his wife Mary. 

The name Patrick is significant, and suggests that he may possibly 
be identical with one Patrick ACHESON, who, on 23 Aug. 1662, was 
married at Derry to Mary SMITH, and who in 1663 was taxed for three 
hearths at his house in Silver Street, Derry. 

It is at least possible that both of these Patricks may have been the 
third son of Alexander the second of Gosf ord. 

Of the Templecarne ACHESONS I have very full notes extending 
from 1705 to the present year, and I hope some day to publish them. 
The family held considerable property, mostly on leases renewable for 
ever, from the LESLIE family, which in turn held the lands on the same 
terms from the See of Clogher. 

John Fleetwood ACHESON, M.A., late principal of Pretoria College, 
still owns a fraction of them in the beautiful little sporting estate of 
" The Lusties," a string of islands in Lough Erne.

This burial ground, now a public garden, is divided into two 
unequal portions by a footpath running east and west to the north 
of the church. The inscriptions from the northern portion were 
copied by Mr. F. S. SNELL, about 1883, from stones, some against, 
and some immediately under, the west wall. In this part of the 
ground there still remain some inscriptions to be copied, and it is 
hoped to be able to complete them next summer. 

In the southern portion, that immediately surrounding the church, 
the inscriptions (Nos. 92-161) were taken down by myself in July, 
1912. More than half of them had been already copied by Mr. SNELL 
in August, 1906. The two copies have been compared, and certain 
details, not now legible, obtained from the earlier copy, are inserted, 
and placed between square brackets. In three instances whole in- 
scriptions have practically disappeared since 1906. 

Mr. SNELL thinks that a f preceding an inscription most probably 
indicates a Catholic interment.

In the Watermillock Registers, the capital letter " S " in the 
surname of the wife of Jonathan DAWSON, is alone decipherable. 
She is believed to have been Elizabeth SLEE, daughter of Joseph 
SLEE, of Thackthwaite, in the parish of Watermillock, who was 
baptised there 10 December, 1724. 

The DAWSON family was settled at Watermillock for some con- 
siderable time, and their pedigree can be clearly traced, from the 
Registers alone, for four generations. Elizabeth DAWSON'S only 
brother, Thomas DAWSON, of Brompton, Middlesex, gentleman, 
died without leaving issue, and was buried 28 February, 1803, at 
Kensington. His will, dated 24 September, 1799, was P rove l m 
the Prerogative Court of Canterbury 2 May, 1805. 

I should like to know the place of origin of the Revd. Joseph 
THWAITS. He was ordained Deacon and licensed to Penrith 6 August, 
1769; licensed to Watermillock 15 February, 1771, and ordained 
priest 1 8 August, 1771. 

John RAW was the only son of John RAW, of Barnard Castle, 
Durham, by his wife Jane ROBINSON, and succeeded to the family 
property of his uncle, John ROBINSON, of Watermillock, who was 
Alderman and Mayor of Appleby in 1770, and High Sheriff of Cumber- 
land for the 9th year of George III. 

The IRVINGS, of Penrith, claimed descent from the IRVINGS of 
Bonshaw, in Scotland, and a short pedigree of the Penrith family 
is recorded in Colonel IRVING'S new book The Book of the Irvings, 
an old Scots Border dan. Dr. William IRVING, F.R.C.S., was a noted 
surgeon in the North of England, and had the distinction of being the 
medical officer on board the Great Eastern, during its voyage for the 
laying of the Atlantic cable.

Esther Louisa Helen WHITEHOUSE, only 
child. Born 12 January 1891, at Warwick

Information is wanted as to the maiden name of Mary, the wife 
of Henry BARNS. She is believed to have been a sister of Thomas 
GREGSON, of Liverpool, blockmaker, the father of Matthew GREG- 
SON, F.S.A., author of The Portfolio of Lancashire Fragments. 

Mary BARNS, Mrs. John PICKERING, had four sisters; the eldest, 
Margaret, married John CLARKE, of Liverpool, merchant, and was the 
ancestress of the families of CLARKE, of Kirkland Hall and Cockerham, 
co. Lancaster, BIRLEY, of Bartle Hall, co. Lancaster, and WEBSTER 
and ASPINALL, of Liverpool. The third, Ellen, married Alexander 
SOLOMON, of Bexley, Kent. The fourth, Ann, married Thomas 
BUTTERFIELD, of Barrowford, co. Lancaster. Her only brother, 
Thomas BARNS, probably died unmarried before 1773, as he is not 
mentioned in his father's will. 

There was a family of BARNS, of Bolton le Sands, Lancashire, 
from which Henry BARNS is said to have been descended, but proof is 
wanted. A member of this family, the Revd. Francis BARNES, D.D., 
was Master of St. Peter's College, Cambridge, 1788-1838, and 
bequeathed to the College a considerable legacy by his will, proved 
in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, 15 May, 1838. 

There are two sisters of Esther YATES (Mrs. John James MYRES) 
now living, viz. Jane, widow of the late Stephen SIMPSON, of Preston, 
Esq., and Miss YATES (Isabella), of St. Mary Church, South Devon. 
The former is my mother.

The Executive Committee met as usual in the Society's Rooms on the second 
Wednesday in each month, at 2 p.m. Meetings of Fellows to elect new Fellows 
are held on the same day, and at the same place, at 3.30 p.m. On the gth October 
a resolution of profound regret was passed on the death of our Vice -President, 
the late Lord LLANGATTOCK. Mr. PRICE, the Librarian-Secretary, having 
resigned his post on I2th October, Miss WOODS was, on the 3ist October, tem- 
porarily appointed to fill his place. 

On 22nd September Miss BRADFIELD was engaged to assist the Parish Register 
Committee. Racks have been fitted in the inner room to hold the drawer- 
boxes of the Consolidated Index, providing enough space to accommodate 
460 such boxes, each containing 2,500 slips, or 1,150,000 index-slips in all. We 
now possess about half a million. Two hundred thousand blank slips were ordered. 
All our available space is rapidly being filled, and an extension of the Society's 
Rooms will soon be imperative. The number of Fellows, Members and Associates 
is now 207. 

GEORGE SHERWOOD (Hon. Secretary). 

(1) Committee on the Library, Printed Volumes. The Accessions List enume- 
rates 442 items, nearly all received by gift. The thanks of the Society are due 
to the donors. We especially invite gifts of printed Family Histories, lists and 
abstracts of original documents, wills, etc., the publications of the Record Com- 
missions and blue-books of a similar character. An incomplete set of 86 volumes 
of the Gentleman's Magazine, 1731 to 1817, was bought. 

(2) Committee on the Library, MS. Volumes. The Revd. T. C. DALE has 
presented: DALE WILLS; Abstracts from Wills in the Archdeaconry of Suffolk, 
1478 to 1811; Consistory of Norwich, 1560 to 1811; Archdeaconry of Norfolk,

MISCELLANEOUS NOTES relating to the families of BRODRICK, DALE, LEWIN, 

The Society is glad to file any lists of documents, long or short, relating to 
any family or place, provided it is clearly shown where such documents are to be 
seen. Lists should each be confined to one particular surname or one particular 
place. The collection of KENT deeds is being " enveloped " and arranged under 
parishes. Mr. S. V. L. HARFORD has been elected a Member of this Committee. 

E. F. KIRK (Hon. Secretary) 


(4) Committee on the Consolidated Index. Before mentioning briefly matters 
connedled with this Committee, I would remind members of the forthcoming 
Annual Report, which besides giving a summary of this year's work in connexion 
with this Committee, includes references to important additional matter that 
has accrued since my last report. 

I am happy to be able to say that a member has kindly undertaken to write 
on to slips the valuable list of subscribers to LEWIS'S Topographical Dictionary 
of England, 1831, to which I referred as desirable in my last notes. 

The first instalments of an index to the BEDFORDSHIRE Poll-Book of 1775 
have also been received, and are specially worthy of mention, as the contributor 
has gone to the trouble of putting the varied information of each entry on to 
five separate slips (names, places, etc.). The index to the Marriage Licences, 
Bishop of London's Registry (1751-1755) will probably be finished in the course 
of a week or two. Mr. R. Burnet MORRIS, M.A., LL.B., and Mr. S. V. L. HAR- 
FORD have been elected to serve on this committee. 

F. S. SNELL (Hon. Secretary).

June and zgth October. The Pedigree Analysis Forms sent out as mentioned 
in last quarter's Report have met with a gratifying response. A copy of FOSTER'S

ceived a valuable set of newspaper articles from the North American, illustrated

FAMILY CHARACTERISTICS (II. 129). The Editor's note to my article 
under the above title furnishes a debatable topic, and in one respect I stand 
corrected, namely, in my lax use of the term " gentle origin." The Editor 
very rightly remarks that no family is of gentle origin unless indeed Adam 
were a gentleman. Well, Adam was not a gentleman. The term " gentle " 
means " purely bred," and Adam, though of pure oiigin, was not bred, but 
created ! 

But I was (arbitrarily, if you will) taking the Conquest as the rough " origin " 
of birth distinctions in English families, and at that time, the fact that the then 
representative of the family, CLAC of Lindsey, co. Lincoln, was a tenant-in-chief 
of the Conqueror, would entitle him to a style equivalent, at least, to our present 
term " gentleman." 

Now, as to the " innkeeper " fable. This story owes its circulation entirely 
to HEDGES' History of Wallingford, but HEDGES was too artistic for an historian, 
and preferred to draw pretty comparisons between imaginary " innkeeper's 
daughters " and the " writer of the Commentaries," to placing on record, 
in a true and genealogical spirit, facts that, if less romantic, would be, at least, 
less misleading to future generations. 

The Editor, in face of Mr. HEDGES' story, felt, I suppose, justified in his 
remarks, but, unfortunately, he was not in possession of the full facts of the 
case, nor conscious of the woeful inaccuracy throughout this narrative of HEDGES. 
The following instances of the latter are noteworthy. The historian of Walling- 
ford states that Miss Elizabeth CLACK married Sir John HONEYWOOD, of Eving- 
ton,in Kent, when in reality, she was the wife of William HoNEYWOOD,of Mailing 
Abbey. Further, he says that another daughter of Mr. Thomas CLACK married 
" some titled person, but whose name I cannot find," when the most elementary 
research would have enabled him to state that she became the wife of Charles 
PALMER, of Dorney Court, Bucks, son of Sir Charles PALMER, Baronet. 

Again, Mr. HEDGES says that all Thomas CLACK'S children were baptized in 
St. Peter's, Wallingford " the eldest in 1721." As a matter of fact the eldest 
child, Richard, was baptized on the 26th July, 1720. The historian goes on 
to say that "the belles of the Bell were in number three only," whereas, if, 
according to his own standard, a " belle " is a lady who marries in the " upper 
class," there were four, for another sister married the Revd. Charles LOCK, 
Rector of North Bovey, co. Devon. 

HEDGES, in short, related the story as a piece of romantic tradition rather 
than as the incontrovertible genealogical fact that the Editor appears to be- 
lieve it. 


My ancestor, Thomas CLACK, the father of the 2nd Viscountess COURTENAY, 
of Mrs. PALMER, of Mrs. HONEYWOOD, and of Mrs. LOCK, is described in con- 
temporary documents (among them, the grant of arms in 1768 to his eldest 
son Richard CLACK, of Hereford Cathedral) as " gentleman." He certainly 
did hold a lease of the " Bell Inn " in 1754, but it was sub-let, and in the occupa- 
tion of an under-tenant while he lived at Shilton, co. Berks, in a house belonging 
to his kinsman, Philip CLACK, of Shilton, a large landed proprietor there. Thomas 
CLACK was Churchwarden of St. Peter's, Wallingford, during the years 1742- 
1744 (probably by virtue of the property he leased in the parish), and he had all 
his children baptized in the same church; but the faft that neither of the two 
sons who died young were buried there seems to suggest that his family burial 
place was elsewhere probably at Shilton. He died intestate in 1761, and 
administration of his goods was granted to his widow, Elizabeth CLACK, by the 
Archdeaconry Court of Berks, on the 8th August, 1761. 

His son, Thomas, matriculated at Brazenose College, Oxford (as the " son of 
Thomas CLACK, of Wallingford, gentleman "), a year after his sister's marriage 
to Lord COURTENAY surely an impossible feat for an uneducated " inn-keeper's " 

In no documents, either printed or in MS., are Lady COURTENAY, Mrs. PALMER 
and Mrs. HONEYWOOD ever referred to familiarly as " Fanny," " Sally," and 
" Betty " respectively. That is the Editor's imagination! 

The runaway Scotch marriage, and the subsequent confirmation of it at 
Powderham, no doubt held out irresistible possibilities for romance to Mr. 
HEDGES, but it was by no means the illicit, patched-up connexion of an irre- 
sponsible noble minor, with a sedudtive, and not too scrupulous village hoyden. 
That is the impression that, it seems to me, both Mr. HEDGES and the Editor 
have obtained. 

May I, in conclusion, point out that the family did not owe any social " rise " 
to the COURTENAYS? The CLACKS were an extremely well-placed (.if not ar- 
migerous) family on the borders of Berkshire and Oxfordshire, two hundred 
years before the COURTENAY alliance.

DUFF. In a MS. pedigree of the GORDONS, of Cairnfield, co. Banff, there 
occurs the marriage of Jane GORDON (born 7 December 1761) with James 
DUFF, Esq., wine-merchant, of " Madeira and London." 

A note to this entry says that James DUFF was " brother to the English Consul 
at Cadiz," and that two brothers of his were " Colonel DUFF, of Carnussie, 
and General Patrick DUFF, a famous Indian sportsman, well-known as Tiger 

Also it states that their mother was a Miss GORDON, of Letterfourie, co. Banff. 
I should be glad to have any further note as to the ancestry of James DUFF. 
His son, James Gordon DUFF, of Harley Street, London (died 1845, aged about 
70), is said to have been born at Nairn, co. Banff, and to have been connected 
with the Duke of FIFE'S family. He bore for arms on Seal and plate Vert, 
on a fesse dancettee erm. between a stags head cabossed in chief and two escallops 
in base or a crescent (? sa.). Crest. A hand holding an escallop shell. Motto.

Could anyone inform me what City Company (? Spe&aclemakers) he joined? 



The Manor and Manorial Records, by Nathaniel J. HONE, with 57 illustrations. 
Second edition. (METHUEN &f Co., London) 1912. 8vo. pp. 411. 7$. 6d. 
A second large edition has been called for, as we fully expected, of this excellent 
handbook on Manorial records. In our copy, to which we constantly refer, is 
carefully kept a small parchment certificate, which runs as follows. It illustrates 
the advantages of living on a manor of ancient demesne. One may learn, in 
the present work, precisely what ancient demesne is. 

MANOR OF "j These are to certify that 

J is the Occupier of a Tenement called 

Part of my aforesaid Manor which is ANCIENT DEMESNE, 
by virtue of which he is free and exempted from all 
Toll, Lastage, Stallage, Piccage, and Standage for all 
Cattle, Goods, Wares, and Merchandise, as well in 
Fairs as Markets, throughout England. Witness my 
Hand this Day of 

Lord of the said Manor. 

SEARLE, Printer, Barnstaple. 

The genealogical import of which is that if you happen to find an ancestor 
with one of these documents, it serves as a certificate of residence and leads to 
the Manor Court Rolls, from whence further genealogical data might be gleaned. 
The value of Mr. HONE'S book is much enhanced by the Index of Plates, show- 
ing where some hundreds of Manor Court Rolls are now to be found. It has 
also a useful list of elliptical phrases often occurring in such rolls.

In the index to wills in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, the following 
names are bracketed as being synonymous: STOKER, STOKKER, STOCKER, 

The family appears to have been at Eaton Socon, Bedfordshire, and its 
immediate neighbourhood, at an early date. In Domesday Book (1086) one reads 
that a STARCKER lived at Lestone (Leightone or Eaton), Beds., as a theyn of 
King Edward the Confessor, owning seven hides of the King's land there. In 
the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries a circle of fifteen miles diameter, with 
Eaton as the centre, would probably have enclosed more STOCKER families than 
were in the whole of England besides. 

It is necessary to remember that the villages of Eaton, Barford (Bereford) 
and Wybiston (Wyboldstone) are all contiguous, that STOCKERS are found in all 
these in early times and later extended to Godmanchester, St. Ives, Willingham 
and other villages close to Eaton, but in Huntingdonshire. 

In 1272, Margaret STOCKER is found as a tenant of the Abbye of Oseneye in 
the town of Langport in the hundred of Stodfold, county of Bucks. 

In 1273, in the catalogue of the Court of Hustings (London) Wills, is men- 
tioned Eleanor la STOCKER de Lillingstone, Bucks. 

In the Patent Roll of 1312 Richard de STOCKER is mentioned in a case at 
Buckingham. In the Patent Roll of 1327-30 Stodfold is said to be in the county 
of Beds. Lillingstone or Lidlington is less than twenty miles from Leighton, 
Beds., where the earliest STOCKERS are spoken of as living. 

In the Patent Roll of 1336 Roger le STOCKER is mentioned at Buckingham. In 
that of 1340 John STOKKER of Caysoe (Keysoe), Beds., is spoken of. In that of 
1384 William STOKKERE of Bedford is mentioned. In that of 1384 William 
STOKKERE of Eaton, Beds., is mentioned. William is mentioned several times 
about this date, and he was probably the father or brother of William who is 
recorded in BLOMEFIELD'S History of Norfolk as having been appointed to the 
living of Forncet in 1391 by the Countess of Norfolk. His will was proved in 
the Prerogative Court in 1408. 

An Inquisition at Bereford in 1428 was signed by William STOCKER (see 
Feudal Aids'). 

In the Visitation of Bedfordshire, 1634, Thomas STOCKER of Wybiston, 1433, 
is mentioned, as he is also in the Patent Roll of 1434, where he is said to be at 

In early Chancery Proceedings, 1436-1437, Robert STOCKER, a woolman, is 
mentioned, together with Harry STOCKER of Wybiston, Beds. Robert and 
Harry both belonged to the Drapers' Company. In the 1439 Patent Roll John 
STOCKER, draper (i.e. member of the Drapers' Company), is mentioned; the 
same year Robert STOCKER of Wyboldstone is mentioned, and also William 
STOCKER. Two STOCKERS were Masters of the Drapers' Company. 

A John STOCKER was Alderman of London in 1458-1464, and in early Chancery 
Proceedings, 1460, John and William STOCKER, merchants of London, are 

It is recorded in the Patent Roll of 1450 that John STOCKER of London was 
appointed to arrest two ships for the King's Ambassadors to Prussia, one in the 


Port of London and the other in the port of Kingston-upon-Hull. In the same 
year John and Henry STOCKER are appointed to go on an embassy to Prussia. 
This embassy is mentioned in PALGRAVE'S Antient Kalendars and Inventories, and 
also in RYMER'S Foedera, II., 681. 

John STOCKER, Master of the Drapers' Company, 1480, was evidently a 
merchant exporting beyond the sea, asking assistance from the Crown to protect 
five ships off the Isle of Wight, and that nine ships of Holland and Zealand lying 
in wait may be arrested. He traded to Morocco, lent money to the King, and 
in return was granted licence to retain the customs and subsidies in wools, 
woolfells and other merchandise for the satisfaction of the loan. He was eledted 
alderman for Langbourne Ward, London, and represented the City in Parlia- 

In 1471 William STOCKER was knighted by Edward IV. He was sheriff of 
London in 1473 and Master of the Drapers' Company, 1475-1479. STOW says: 
" He was sonne to Thos. STOCKER of Eaton in Com. Bedf." John and William 
were brothers, and were probably in partnership in business. Sir William 
founded the chantry of St. Mary and St. Thomas in 1476, was Lord Mayor in 
1485, and died the same year. He was one of two Mayors who died from the 
sweating sickness. His will exists. 

In the Visitation of Bedfordshire 1634 (Harl. Soc. XIX. 143)' is a short 
pedigree from which the following is taken : 

Henry STOCKER, = 
of Wyboston in I 
com. Bedf. 

Thomas STOCKER = 

John STOCKER of Wy boston = 
in com. Bedf. Cosen to the 
Alderman STOCKER of Lon- 
don. A 4 H. VII. [1489] 

Sir William STOCKER, to whom I have just referred, was a brother of John, 
whose will (P.C.C. LOGGE 15) exists, dated 1485; but Sir William is said by 
STOW in his Survey of London to have been " sonne to Thomas STOCKER of Eaton 
in the County of Bedford." 

On the other hand, in the Visitation pedigree John STOCKER of Wyboston is 
also said to be the son of Thomas. Consequently the Visitation pedigree can be 
enlarged as follows: 

Henry STOCKER^: 

Thomas STOCKER == 



The will of John STOCKER, 1485, mentions his wife Elizabeth and brother Sir 
William, but no children. 

The will of Sir William STOKKER, 1485 (P.C.C. LOGGE 26) mentions " my 
mother Dame Margaret CROKE " (mother-in-law, evidently), " my own 
mother," " daughter Margaret," " wife Margaret," " John STOCKER of Wyboston 
and Johan and Margaret children of my brother Robert." So that the Visitation 
pedigree when extended reads: 

Henry STOCKER = 
Thomas STOCKER == 

John STOCKER =p Sir William == Margaret Robert == 


John STOCKER Margaret Johan Margaret 


This can be still further enlarged, as the following extract from early Chancery 
Proceedings 1515-1529, Bundle 580, No. 18, proves: "John son and heir of 
John STOCKER v. Roger BASTARD late the husband of Margaret, formerly married 
to Richard JAY, sergeant-at-law, and to William STOKKER, Kt. Detention of 
bonds relating to messuages in St. Michael's, Cornhill, and St. Christopher's, 

At present nothing more is known of John, the son of John and nephew of Sir 
William, whether he was married or when he died, but it is evident he lived to 
grow up, for in the trial to recover from Roger BASTARD the action was not 
brought by a minor. He was probably born at Wyboston, the home of his 
father, where his family had been since Domesday, and that it continued to do 
so for still much longer is certain, for in the wills at Lincoln, Book 1585, is a will 
of John STOCKER of Wyboston, 1583, who desired to be buried at Eaton, and 
leaves money to the vicar of that parish for the poor. 

He mentions his wife Margaret, son John, sons Richard, Henry and Henry's 
son Thomas, daughters Cicely, Margaret, Blanche, Jane and her husband 

This John STOCKER'S will was a most important one as regards the pedigree, 
for it definitely links the Bedfordshire STOCKERS with those of Huntingdonshire; 
proving indeed that the family through John STOCKER'S family moved almost 
entirely from the one county to the other. 

John speaks of his daughter Jane and her husband GOODWYNE. Now in a 
will of Richard ROBYNS (1558) of Godmanchester, John GOODWYNE is mentioned, 
and also the daughters of Henry STOKER. 

John STOCKER'S son Henry (then living at St. Ives, close to Godmanchester) 
married Agnes, daughter of Richard ROBYNS, the founder of the Godmanchester 
Grammar School (see Fox's History of Godmanchester), and had two sons; the 
first, Henry, married Jane WILSON of Godmanchester in 1588 and died 1591 ; the 


second, Thomas, who is mentioned in the will of John STOCKER (as well as his 
father Henry) of Wyboston, thus doubly proving the connexion between the 
Hunts and Beds families. 

The above Thomas lived at Godmanchester and married Joan, or Jane, 
STEVENSON, as is proved by the wills of William STEVENSON the elder (Archd. 
Hunts., 1597) and of John STEVENSON the elder of Gcdmanchester, 1606 (P.C.C. 

Thomas died at Godmanchester in 1613. His will is amongst the Hunts 
wills. He mentions his sons John, Richard and Henry, daughters Agnes, Mary 
and Elizabeth. His wife predeceased him in 1607. 

Thomas was a tanner, and had served with " Qualivir " and sword at the 
Spanish Armada, as recorded amongst " The names of the soldiers and the 
weapons yt they are appoynted to serve withall, taken and delivered into the 
charge of Mr. Oliver CROMWELL esquire out of the hundred of Tosland at St. 
Neots, the 3 of June 1588." (Huntingdonshire and the Armada, by Revd. W. 

John, the son of the above-named Thomas, married, first, at Godmanchester 

in 1604, Susan BRAZIER, who died in 1633, and secondly Sarah , who died 

1659. John himself died in 1662 at Godmanchester. By his first wife he had 
two children, born at Godmanchester: John, baptized in 1613; Ann, in 1617. 
This last John was bailiff of Godmanchester in 1664, 1669 and 1675, and is men- 
tioned as a frank pledge there in 1657; after his death the post of bailiff was held 
more than thirty times by some member of the family. 

Thomas's daughter Agnes married William WATSON at Godmanchester in 
1619. His son William was baptized there in 1605 and died there in 1666. 

The register of birth of Thomas's son Richard is wanting. He is spoken of as 
Richard of Sutton (in the Isle of Ely, on the same River Ouse as St. Ives and 
Godmanchester, and close to both), and is mentioned in the will of Thomas. 
He married at Sutton in 1615 Elizabeth CASTELL, lived at Godmanchester for 
some time, and his children were born there; the first, Robert, was baptized at 
Godmanchester in 1616 and died there in 1627. The second, Thomas, was 
baptized at Godmanchester in 1619. The last-named, Thomas, married first, 

Elizabeth , who died in 1649, and had children; John, baptized at St. 

Ives, 1644, died 1645; and Elizabeth, baptized 1648, died 1649; both at St. 

Ives. Thomas married secondly Elizabeth , and had Ann, baptized 1651, 

Eliza, baptized 1652, Mary, baptized 1655, Sarah, baptized 1657, and Thomas, 
baptized 1659, a ^ at ^ t - ^ ves< ^is Thomas (grandson of Richard) was bailiff 
of Godmanchester 1701 and 1710, and died when coroner. 

Richard's third son was Richard, baptized at Godmanchester in 1629. He 
married at St. Ives in 1654, Sarah BOND, and his will was proved at Huntingdon 
in 1667. He had three daughters and one son (all at St. Ives), Elizabeth, bap- 
tized 1656, Elizabeth, baptized 1658, Ann, baptized 1661, and Richard, baptized 

Richard, son of Richard STOCKER and Sarah BOND, baptized at St. Ives in 
1663, married there in 1684, Mary FILTON, and died there in 1725. His children 
were: Richard, baptized at St. Ives, 1686; died there 1686; Richard, baptized 
at St. Ives, 1688, of whom hereafter; Thomas, baptized at St. Ives, 1689, died 
there 1694. 



Richard (the second son of Richard STOCKER and Mary FILTON), baptized 
1688, married at St. Ives, in 1718, Elizabeth DEAN; died 1742. He had three 
children: Thomas, baptized at St. Ives, 1721, buried there 1723; Richard, 
baptized at St. Ives, 1723; Thomas, baptized at St. Ives, 1735, married there in 
1760, Susan PAULSON; died there 1780. 

Thomas, the last-named, son of Richard STOCKER, had the following children, 
all born at St. Ives: Luff, baptized 1761, died 1845; Annie, baptized 1763, died 
1763; Jane, baptized 1765; Susan, baptized 1768; George, baptized 1770, of 
whom hereafter; Thomas, baptized 1771; Martha, baptized 1773; Elizabeth, 
baptized 1775; Anne, baptized 1778. 

George STOCKER, the fifth child of Thomas and Susan, baptized at St. Ives in 
1770, married in 1800 Amy WETENHALL at the Round Church, Cambridge; 
lived the greater part of his life at Godmanchester and died at Bedford in 1839. 
He was a maltster and had eleven children, all born at Godmanchester, as follows : 

Emma, born 1801; Eliza, born 1802, married Mr. ELLESMERE; George, born 
1804, married Miss CARPENTER; Luff, born 1805, married Miss PERRIN; Jane, 
born 1807, married Mr. PEAT; Martha, born 1809, married Mr. GIDDINGS; 
Edward, born 1811, married Miss CHURCH; Sarah, born 1812, married Mr. 
HENSMAN; Thomas, born 1813, married (i) Miss HUMBLY X (2) Miss BEALE; 
James, born 1815, of whom hereafter; Catherine, born 1817. 

James STOCKER, the tenth child of George STOCKER and Amy WETENHALL, was 
born at Godmanchester in 1815. He married in 1843, at Hail Weston, Mary 
Roberts BANKS, and died at Stratford in 1887, having had the following seven 

Arthur, born at Bedford; Elizabeth, born at Bedford, died at Stratford in 
1892; Emily, married Rev. S. SMITH, M.A. (Cantab.), rector of Westhall, Suffolk; 
Charles Joseph Stocker, of whom hereafter; Fanny, married Richard CAREY, 
M.A. (Cantab.), and had three children, Richard, Violet and Frances; Annie, 
married Rev. Walter WRIGHT, M.A. (Cantab.), rector of New Catton, Norwich, 
and had three children, Eric, James and Vera; Alice Maud May, living in 1913, 

Charles Joseph Stocker STOCKER, the fourth child of James STOCKER, married at 
Hampstead, in 1878, Emma, daughter of Simon PHILLIPS, and had two children, 
Mary Harriet and Charles James. 

It will be noted that in many of the later entries in the pedigree, for instance, 
Richard, born 1723; John, 1613; William, 1605; and others, the names of 
their wives and families have not been given; this is simply because it would 
enormously enlarge the pedigree. As I have the whole of the registers for 
Godmanchester, St. Ives, Willingham, etc., I could easily give the information 
if required, but I only wish here to trace my own descent. The tabular form 

C. J. S. 
(To be continued,!) 


This pedigree has been compiled from Quaker records, wills, &c., 
at Chichester and in the Principal Registry, and private information. 

No clue to the parentage of Thomas HORNE (d. 1718) has been 
found. The name does not occur in the Arundel parish register, 
nor to any extent in the will calendars at Chichester prior to 1700. 
He is first traced at Arundel in 1673 as witness to a Quaker marriage 
in that year. His signature on a deed referring to Arundel property 
of date 1705 is in the possession of Mr. Perceval LUCAS. Earthenware 
plates marked with the initials T. S. H. are also extant. 

Coming to the second generation of the family, an autograph letter 
of Robert HORNE (1692-1756) written 12 February 1718/9, is 
among the Sloane MSS. in the British Museum (4065, 289). It is 
addressed to James PETIVER, F.R.S., the naturalist, offering to send, 
if thought of sufficient interest, a curious animal found near Arundel. 
Probably this Robert HORNE, and certainly his son and grandson, used 
Swanbourne Mill at Arundel, the last mentioned being killed by the 
accidental starting of the water wheel in 1813. The mill was pulled 
down in the early 'forties, but lives in a picture by CONSTABLE (en- 
graved by David LUCAS) now in the possession of Lady WERNHER. 
Quakerism at Arundel died out about 1820, and the burial ground in 
Tarrant Street is now a private garden. . The only gravestone is that 
of the above-named Robert HORNE, 1813. 

The descendants of Edward HORNE, the emigrant (1688-? 1735), 
through his second son, William, are recorded at length in the 
Genealogy of the Sharpless Family, by Gilbert COPE, Philadelphia, 1887. 

Benjamin HORNE of London, coalfactor (1698-1766), died, ac- 
cording to The Gentleman's Magazine, " said to be worth 70,000." 
His line is remarkable for the long and unbroken connexion of seven 
consecutive generations with the coal trade (and, incidentally, with 
historic Bankside), and also for an allegiance of nearly equal duration 
to the Clothworkers' Company; the family from Thomas HORNE 
(1726-1802) onwards always having been represented on the Livery. 
The commercial history of this branch has been dealt with by Mr. 
Sidney Neale HORNE in The Coal Merchant and Shipper, 5 October 
1912, in an article entitled " A Notable London Coal Trade Family," 
based on a collection of partnership deeds and other documents in the 
compiler's possession. 

Though a large proportion of the descendants of Robert HORNE 
(1692-1756) remain in membership with the Society of Friends, the 
connexion of the line of Benjamin HORNE (1698-1766) with Quaker- 
ism ceased entirely during the nineteenth century.

(A.) The Rev. A. C. ALMACK, Rector of Blandf ord, St. Mary, kindly 
pointed out that on p. 454 of The Great Civil War in Dorset, 1642-60 
(1910) I had confused Dr. John PITTS, Warden of Wadham College 
and Rector of Chardstock, with the Rector of Blandford, who was 
never sequestered. The latter's second son, Governor PITT, whose 
letters have been recently published in The Dropmore Papers, bought, 
in 1710, the old Chettle manor in Blandford, restored the church 
and erected a tablet to the memory of his parents. The Governor 
and his sons lie buried in the same church. (See Mr. ALMACK'S paper 
on the PITTS in Proceedings of the Dorset Nat. Hist, and Antiq. Field 
Club, xxxi, 165.) 

(B.) Robert PITT was an original member of the Oxford Chemical 
Society (October 1683), and Deputy-Professor of Anatomy. The 
historian of Wadham College says : " He deserves special remembrance 
as being one of the first physicians who ventured to protest against 
the folly of taking too much physic, and against some of the popular 
drugs in the pharmacopoeia of the day, such as mummy or powdered 
vipers. As might be expected, his book, The Craft and Frauds of 
Physick Exposed, involved him in a storm of controversy." 

(C.) Christopher PITT the elder contributed the Plague of Athens 
to Thomas CREECH'S translation of Lucretius, a work dedicated to 
George PITT of Strathfieldsaye. CREECH, himself a native of Bland- 
ford, had been at Wadham under Robert PITT'S tuition. HUTCHINS 
(Dorset, 3rd edn., iv, 91, " PITT of Shroton ") makes the elder 
Christopher son of Robert, the physician, but from the dates (CREECH'S 
Lucretius being first published in 1682) he seems more likely to have 
been his brother. The D.N.B., under Christopher the younger, 
says that Robert, the physician, was probably the poet's great-uncle, 
and Governor Thomas his first cousin. But the physician and the 
Governor were both born in the same year. The old parish registers 
of Blandford Forum appear to have perished in the fire of 1731. I 
have given the elder Christopher's dates from his tombstone in 
Blandford (Forum) church. From the last-named downwards I am 
indebted to the kindness of Mr. E. A. FRY, who worked out the pedi- 
gree from a Recovery Roll of Easter Term 1775 in the P.R.O. The 
document itself is the deed of sale of the manors of Tarrant Gunvill 
and Tarrant Launceston (Launston), Dorset, by Richard, Earl 
TEMPLE, to Richard GLOVER and Benjamen ALLEN (probably nominees 
for other parties), dated 4 January, 15 Geo. III. The daughters of 
Christopher PITT, M.D., were owners of a tenement in Tarrant 
Launston and lands called Muston's Tenement, and, at some time 
previous to the deed of 1775, had sold the property to George Bubb 


DODINGTON, Lord Melcombe, who lived at Eastbury in Tarrant 

(D.) HUTCHINS makes the poet-parson marry his mother, and father 
his elder brother. While still an undergraduate, Christopher pub- 
lished a Poem on the Death of the late Earl of Stanhope. Humbly 
Inscribed to the Countess of Stanhope (1721). Lady STANHOPE was his 
second cousin. In 1727 he dedicated to George PITT his Poems and 
Translations, and issued in 1740 his translation of Virgil's JEneid in 
heroic couplets with a dedication to Frederick, Prince of WALES. He 
suffered from an early age from a very severe form of gout the 
family disease. 

(E.) This William GOLDWYRE was son of William GOLDWYRE, 
surgeon of New Sarum (d. 1748), and Mary SMITH ; and elder 
brother of George GOLDWYRE, surgeon of Marlborough (d. 1771), 
who married Elizabeth BAYLEY of that town. (See The Pedigree 
Register, ii, 267, 270.)

The Executive Committee met as usual in the Society's Rooms on the second Wednesday 
in each month at 2 p.m. Meetings of Fellows to elect new Fellows are held, on the same 
day and at the same place, at 3.30. On the 1 3th December the resignation of Mr. 
GLENCRossfrom the Executive Committee was accepted with regret, and Mr. BODDINCTON 
was elected on the 7th January to fill his place. 

In reply to representations by this Society, the Registrar of the diocese of Southwark 
wrote that a copy of a statement as to the monuments in St. Paul's churchyard, Deptford, 
in accordance with the Open Spaces Act, 1906, will be filed in that Registry before the 
Faculty issues for converting that churchyard into a recreation ground. 

On the zjth January, Mr. FOTHERGILL and Mr. GLENCROSS, representing the Society, 
appeared before the Royal Commission on Public Records, and the former gave much 
valuable evidence as to probate and other ancient ecclesiastical records at Somerset House. 
Attention was called by Mr. BEAZLEY to the regrettable transfer of Lancashire, West- 
morland and Yorkshire Wills from London to York, where they will certainly be less 
accessible to inquirers. 

Sir Thomas TROUBRIDGE consented to represent the Society at the International 
Congress of Historical Studies to be held at Burlington House in April, and to read a 
Paper on the scope and objects of this Society. The Membership Roll is now 218. 

George SHERWOOD, Hon. Sec.

E. F. KIRK, Hon. Sec. 


(4) Committee on the Consolidated Index. Accessions for the quarter include a com- 
plete copy 'of the inscriptions of St. Margaret's, LEICESTER, an index to the pedigrees 
(LINCOLNSHIRE) in volume 50 (Harleian Society), and the first instalment of 1,200 
slips (letters A and B) indexing the Subscribers' List to LEWIS'S Topographical Dictionary 
of England. Mention should also have been made in our last report of a valuable series 
of slips, numbering 3,774, referring to the BODDINGTON Family, 1837-1900. 

I am able to announce the completion of part of an index to the Marriage Licences at 
the Bishop of London's Registry. The period covered (1751-55) will be written out 
within the next few weeks and the original slips sorted into the Great Index. A start has 
now been made on another period of five years, but more workers, please ! 

A circular is issued with this report inviting the gift of odd copies of eighteenth and 
early nineteenth century newspapers and periodicals, for the purpose of having them 
indexed, advertisements and all. Periodicals such as The Gentleman's Magazine, in the 
Society's possession, copies of which can be lent to members undertaking this class of 
work, are enumerated. The gift of odd copies of The London Gazette, printed evidence 
in law cases, celebrated trials, commissions of inquiry, etc., all of which are full of 
genealogical and biographical evidence, badly in need of indexing, is invited. Fellows and 
members not already contributing Index slips are specially invited to offer to meet the 
expense of having some written. The Hon. Treasurer will be glad to receive contribu- 
tions for the purpose.

MORE'S Worcestershire Parish Registers if another Member will pay the other half (55. 3d.

JENNER of Gloucestershire and Wiltshire:

Will dated I November 1638, signed William JENNER, the elder; proved 
23 January 1638/9 by wife and grandchild William FORDER. Overseer of will, 
Mr. Robert JENNER of Wyddhill. Witnesses, John JENNER, Richard HEDGES, 
Thomas HEDGES, William JENNER. Poor of Kemisforde 405., of Northmarson, 
2os. In a bequest to his son William of 5, he states that it is " to enable him 
the sooner to estate his son in reversion in the copyhold tenement wherein he 
now dwells in Marson." He bequeaths to his grandson, William FORDER, ^30, 
" provided my wife yield up her jointure in two yards of land in Northmarson, 
which I bought of Sir Thomas SACKVILE, knt., she to have the 30." 

John JENNER of Crudwell, = Margaret 

Wilts., yeoman. Will Probably identical with 
dated 29 Oct. 1647. Margaret JEENER, donor 

of church plate to Crud- 
well, 1688. 

Will proved 17 July 1648 by the executor, Henry OTTRIG (OATRIDGE) (P.C.C. 
114 PEMBROKE). Mentions brother Robert JENNER, cousin Marie HAYWARD, 
kinsman Harry OTTRIG. Overseers, Robert JENNER, and neighbour, Nicholas 
WHITE of Escote. Witnesses, Robert MILLS, William CARTER, Henry LINSEY, 
William HUDSON.

A daughter. = William PEARSE. 
Katherine. Alice. Henry PEARSE. 


Testatrix desires " to be buried by the hands of my Christian brothers and 
sisters in the Church yard of Meisey Hampton." She describes William JENNER 
as her " good son-in-law " and mentions " one other of my grandchildren, John, 
20," without surname. William JENNER is appointed executor. " My kins- 
man " Edward DRIVER of South Cerney and John JENNER of Marston, overseer. 
Witnesses, Edward DRYVER, John JENNER, John TAYLOR. Proved 25 October 
1648 by the executor named. 

There is in Maisey Hampton church a wooden lectern with the following 
roughly carved on it: 




I have a note that there is a will (130 ST. JOHN) of a John JACKETTS of North 
Marston, parish of Hampton Meysey, Glouc., 1631, proved by relict Alice, and 
daughters Margaret and Alice. The will of Alice, however, expresses the wish 
" to be buried as near as possible unto my dear deceased husband Thomas." 

Since sending the notes on JENNER published in June 1911, I referred to a 
manuscript in the British Museum and find that the entry in the Heralds' 
Visitation of 1623 is Camsford and not Cainsford, evidently copied or printed 
incorrectly from the Visitation. The wills do not reveal the identity of Edith 
JENNER, the wife of Dr. VAULX. 



BURTON. Can anyone give me any information about Sir James de BURTON, 
shield-bearer to King Richard II, and Master of the Forest of Needwood? He 
is mentioned in Harleian MS. 1439, fo. 7, also in NICHOLS' Leicestershire, page 

6 35 . 


MOTHERBY, HOTHAM, GREEN, BAYLEY (II, 350). The marriage 
in question of George MOTHERBIE of Hambleton, co. York, and Anne HOTHAM 
of Welton, took place about 1720-24. The date, it is hoped, will help in the 
discovery of where it was solemnized. 


Konigsberg i-p, Tragheimer Pulverst. 44, Germany. 

We have received 'The Berks, Bucks and Oxon Archaeological Journal (C. 
SLAUGHTER & Son, Reading) for January, completing volume 18, from which we 
regret to see the valuable Berkshire Feet of Fines discontinued; the preliminary 
number of International Notes and Queries (E. F. McPiKE, 135 Park Row, 
Chicago, U.S.A.); the quarterly number of The Utah Genealogical Magazine 
(60 East South Temple Street, Salt Lake City), in which the recording of 
genealogical facts is raised to a religious principle; the quarterly number of The 
Journal of the Friends' Historical Society (Devonshire House, Bishopsgate 


Street, London), excellent for its yearly indexes; and the announcement of a 
new monthly to be called 'The Genealogical Record (34 Forest Drive, Manor

The Manorial Society (i Mitre Court Buildings, Temple, E.G.) has issued its 
Sixth Annual Report. It is printing a series of " Lists of Manor Court Rolls in 
Private Hands," and invites notification of such rolls as are known to exist. 
The saving of Manor Court rolls from destruction and making them accessible 
to searchers is work of primary importance to every genealogist.
