Of the MuldU Temj.U, Jiarrister-al-Lnw. 












In the preface to last year's volume, I expressed a hope 
that this Mafirazine would continue to receive the unstinted 
support which has for so long been extended to it, and it 
is very satisfactory to find that this hope has been amply 
fulfilled. During the nine years that I have had the honour 
of acting as editor, more than one new publication has 
appeared, dealing, though on somewhat different lines, with 
the subjects to which our columns are devoted ; nevertheless, 
it may be safely affirmed that these new ventures have in 
no way interfered with the popularity which The Genealogist 
has always enjoyed. This annual preface affords once more 
an opportunity of thanking one and all who have given me 
their help during the past year, and especially my acknow- 
ledgments are due to Mr. G. C. Bower for the very curious 
and interesting Offley manuscript, ' which will always make 
this volume memorable. As Mr. Bower has pointed out in 
his excellent introduction, its quaint and homely details 
bring vividly before our eyes the life and habits of the 
Elizabethan age, and help us to realize, as no historical text 
books can do, the England of that glorious epoch. The 
writer of the manuscript, though as a rule wonderfully 
accurate, has fallen into a few genealogical errors, and a 
pedigree has therefore been compiled, the first portion of 
which appears in this Volume, correcting these mistakes and 
at the same time carrying on the male line of the different 
branches of the Offley family, as far as has been found 
possible. As an appropriate frontispiece, the monument of 
Sir Thomas Offley in the church of St. Andrew Undershaft 

f^rx.^ ^^ 


has been selected. The "History of the Family of 
Wrottesley" has now been satisfactorily concluded, and with 
it a separate index has been issued. I am sure that all our 
subscribers will fully appreciate the importance of General 
Wrottesley's work, which has been provided without any 
extra cost to them. It is indeed a model family history, 
admirably conceived and most ably written, so that it may 
well serve as a pattern to those desirous of undertaking a 
similar enterprise. The ancient deeds which it contains, 
the originals of which perished in the unfortunate fire at 
Wrottesley Hall, render it of exceptional value and interest. 

It is hardly necessary again to refer to what may be 
termed the " standing " series of papers which have done 
so much to gain for the Magazine its high reputation, but 
among the other articles and pedigrees which have been 
contributed this year the following are deserving of special 
mention : — " The Pedigree of Maunsell," by Mr. Cokayne, 
accompanied by abstracts of the evidences from which it 
was compiled ; Dr. Law's discoveries relating to the Visitations 
of Lewys Dwnn, and the lattor's patent as Deputy Herald ; 
Mr. Henry Wagner's pedigree of the Huguenot refugee family 
of Chalid ; Mr. V. C. Sanborn's most interesting " Plough 
Company of 1630," which will receive attention both in 
this country and in America ; Mr. Foster's " Newcomen 
and Hunnings Pedigree " ; and last, but not least, " The 
Marriages at Fort St. George," which from the fact that 
many of the founders of our Indian Empire were married 
within the walls of St. Mary's Church, possess quite an 
historic interest.

A pedigree is to a family history as the skeleton to the living 
creature. The facts of birth, marriage and death are essential, 
but one longs to clothe them with the details of personal interest. 
This has been done for three generations of the Offleys by the 
author of the following pages, and after nearly three hundred 
years his chronicle seems worthy of publication. The style has 
the charm of the period in which the Authorised Version gave a 
standard to literary English : the matter illustrates a phase of 
social life at a time in which after faction fights had ended with 
the wars of the Roses, the benevolent despotism of the Tudors 
encouraged the growth of a wealthy middle class, the foundation 
of the landed gentry of England. 

No one can study the Heralds* Visitations without noticing 
the close connexion between the City and the country gentry. 
For the younger son in those days the professions can hardly 
be said to have existed. He had either to accept the position 
of a dependent of his elder brother, and to see his children 
sink into the ranks of the yeomanry, or to seek fortune by trade 
in the towns. On the other hand, the elder brother not infrequently 
consolidated his position by a judicious alliance with the daughter 
of a wealthy merchant, and the merchant found in the purchase 
of land the only permanent investment for his accumulations. 
The action and reaction of these movements is shown very clearly 
in the text. 

Sir Thomas Offley can hardly have come to London as a stranger. 
" His Mr. Nichells " had connexions in Staffordshire, if he was 
not himself of that county by birth. From the first the path 
was made smooth for the industrious apprentice. It is pleasant 
to note that when fortune smiled upon him, like Joseph of old, 
he was not unmindful of his kindred, but brought up his brothers 
and sisters to share in his prosperity. He lived and died a 
merchant of London, but he purchased Madeley Manor in Stafford- 
shire, which remained for many years the principal seat of his 

The manuscript is in the possession of Miss Martin-Edmunds, 
of Worsbrough, near Barnsley. It passed to the Edmunds family 
by the marriage (18 June 1767) of Francis Edmunds, of Worsbrough, 
with Hannah Maria, daughter of Joseph Offley, of Norton in 
Derbyshire, and coheiress, with her sister Urith, wife of Samuel 
Shore, of that Edmund Offley, the disposition of whose estates 
forms the subject of Mr. Hunter's work, " A True Account of the 



Alienation and Recovery of the Estates of the Offleys of Norton 
in 1754" (London, 1841, 12mo). It was known to Mr. Hunter 
who quotes it in his " Chorus Vatum," and to Dr. Samuel Pegge, 
the antiquary, who in a manuscript history of the owners of 
Norton, also in the possession of Miss Martin-^munds, makes it 
the basis of his account of the Norton branch of the Offley family. 

As to the authorship of the document nothing definite can be 
said. Internal evidence shows it to have been written in the 
reign of James I, and Dr. Pegge was disposed to attribute it to 
"this WiUiam Collins" whose kinship to the Offleys is traced at 
the beginning of the history. It is an equally plausible conjecture 
that it was the work of John Weston, the younger, son of the 
wise and discreet servant who secretly married Ellen Offley, Sir 
Thomas's favourite niece, to his " great choUer." There is a personal 
note in the account of the reconciliation and of the expectation 
of favours to come, which Sir Thomas's untimely death frustrated. 
The Westons lived in the neighbourhood of Madeley, and it was 
at Madeley that the sight of Sir Thomas's picture pendent in 
the dining chamber rejoiced the heart of the author. 

Whoever he may have been, it has been thought better to let 
him tell his tale without comment and to reserve for the conclusion 
a pedigree illustrating the somewhat intricate relationships which 
he describes, and the later generations of the Offleys.

Thomas Offley & mother to ould W"» Collins wife, who was Grand- 
mother to this W°> Collins. But now concerninge W" Offley hee 
had by his first wife two sons, viz^ Thomas & John, This Thomas 
was sent to London when hee was but xii Yeares of age, <fe was 
put apprentice to Mr. John Nechells merchant Taylo' of London, 
&. merchant of the Staple at Callice, This Mr. Nechells was of 
great acquaintance w'^ Mr. William Lillie who made the Grafner 
now called Lyllies Gramer, <fc was newly elected schoolem' of Jesus 
schoole in Pauls churchyard, of the foundation of that worthie 
Doct' Collett ; And this Thomas Offley became a good Gramarian 
under Mr. Lillie, & understood the Lattine tounge pfectly, & 
because hee had a sweet voyce, hee was put to learne pricksong 
amongst the choristers of Paules, for that learned Mr. Lilleye knew 
full well that the knowledge in Musick was a help & furtherance 
to all arts. Musica mentis medicina mestse, for it is a great helpe 
to pnuntiacon k Judgm*. Pythagoras would admitt of noe scholler 
unless hee had some perfect knowledge in Musick, soe had this 
Thomas in both these arts above his Fellowes of that tender age. 
And now leaving the schoole but not his Love of Learninge, hee 
applyed himselfe to his trade of M'chandize of the staple where- 
unto he was bound xiii yeares wherein hee pfited soe much by his 
wisdome & dilligence that hee deserved great love & liking of 
his Mr. Nichells insomuch that in the tyme of his apprentiship, 
hee preferred <k pmised him his Daughter & heii-e Joane Nichells 
to be his wife, Jb that they should enjoy his lands & goods k

Merchant Tayl*" of the Staple & founder of the Free Schoole in 
Wolverhampton 4k Maior of London in the last yeai-e of the Raigne 
of K. Jlenry the Seaventh of Famous memory. This Thomas Offley 
being in such Favour & Creditt & estimacon w*** the worshipfull 
Cittizens <fe Mercliants, sent for his three sisters to London, Margrett, 
Joane 4k Izabel. This Margrett was placed in service w"* Mr. John 
Nechells, w*^ whom her Brother Thomas Offley was prentise. And 
shortly after the decease of Katherine Daughter & heire of S*" Stephen 
Genings, this John Nechells tooke to wife his maide servant Margrett 
Offley, but hee had no issue by her ; And here I have occation 
somwhat to write of the godly life & Death of this Mr. John 
Nechells who mainteined dayly a plentifull table, <k releived most 
of the poore sort of his parish, a very religious and godly man 
detesting vice and embracing virtue ; from his mouth ever to all 
men pceeded gentle & loving words, & some little tyme before 
his Death <k Departure sitting in his chaire, hee called his Servant 
Thomas Offley. And s*^ to him sonn Thomas I pray thee take 
money & goc to the Mercei-s shopp, & buy mee a paire of Sattin 
sleeves ; lliat shalbe done S^ s^ Thomas will you have any thing 
else, nothing s*' Mr. Nechells but the blessing of god goe <k be 
with thee, but before hee returned with the Sattin, most quiettly 
^ in his chaire hee departed this life. And soe noe doubt hee 
prophesied truly of this .Thomas Offley, for the blessing of god 


followed him all the dayes of his life; for Imediately after hee was 
chosen Mr. of his Company of the M'chant Taylo", & shortly 
after was elected Alderman, & in Queene Maries was sherriffe of 
London. Queene Marie sent to her sherrifie Thomas Offley a guilt 
& graven armour, and xii guilt & graven partisons out of the 
tower of London in 1553 : Guilford Dudley was Deliv'd by the 
Leivetennant of the tower to Thomas Offley to be beheaded at the 
tower hill, 1553 : In a troublesome tyme when Wyatt of Kent 
rose w**** an army against the Spaniards, & this worthie sherifie 
saved many that should have dyed for this Conspiracy, <& w*hin 
two yeare after was Maio' of London, the yeare before Callice was 
lost; & in his tyme of Mairallitie was a great dearth of Corne, 
but it was not scene nor felt in the Lord Maiors howse. His 
ezpences were great when hee was sherriffe & in his Mairalitye, 
& in the yeare after his losse was greater when Callice was lost 
from the English. For hee lost lands & wools & great substance, 
yet hee greived not thereat but gave god thankes, as well for the 
adverse fortune as for his ^sperity. Hee continued Alderman untill 
the 25 yeare of Queene Elizabeth of Famous memory, & was cheife 
Alderman & Father of the Citty many yeares, welbeloved in Court 
& Countrey; hee was Maio' of the Staples both of England & 
Westminster above twenty yeares, & although the Order & Custome 
was every yeare to make theire election for theire Maio^ of him 
still they made there choice as a man most worthie of the place, 
and Dignity thereof, for in the absence of the Lord cheife Justice 
the Recognizance of the Staple are acknowledged before the Maior 
of the Staple & the Recorder of London. Hee was alsoe chosen 
by her Maiesty to assotiate the Lord Mountague in his Embassage 
to the Citty of Bruges in Flaunders. He was knowne to her 
Maiesty, for kneeling before her at the Knighting of the Lord 
Maio', shee comanded two of her gentlemen pensioners to 
take him from kneeling & to sett him upon his Feet. I 
know you well s** shee Mr. Alderman, & I knew you in my 
Father's tyme; this [thus] was hee beloved in Court & Countrey. 
A loving landlord to his tenents noe Raiser of Rents nor taker

of his Lady Dame Joane, hee begat three sons whereof two • dyed

entayled upon the heires male. I canott name all that are

noble King James keepe his Court at Tixall where hee sett Forth

Tixall the xiith day of August in the xviiith yeare of o' Raigne

<k Daughters of S' Walter Aston of the howse of Tixall, S' 
Edward Aston son and heire to S"^ Walter, a worthy Justice of

with the privy Counsell, a man of gravity & wisdome in his youth

& a justice of peace in Staffordshire, «fe Recorder of Stafford ; 
The Daughters also of S' Walter Aston <k his lady Neeces

maner were the Children of John Giffard of Chillington Esq', for 
his sons men of great wealth, pollitique, couragious, & resolute in 
all attempts. Men of great wisdome, temperance and gentleness, so 
that they did deserve and continue that name of gentle Gifford. 
The Daughters likewise were bestowed in worshipfull Familyes, as 
the Lady Dormer in Northamptonshire & others there sisters 
matched & lincked to men of like worship & Dignity. And although 
the bestowing of these Daughters soe worthily matched, might 
seeme to draw away a great pte of wealth and living into other 
Families such pvident care hath beene forseene by these 2 worshipfull 
bowses, that noe pte of ancient inheritance hath beene diminished 
from the heires, w<^h seldome may be scene to be performed in 
many noble houses where god hath blest with many noble children. 
And as touching S' Walter Aston K^ is in such creditt and Favour 
w*h his maiesty, who hath appointed him for his wisdome & 
singular Dexterity in Spaine to be an Embassador, doth obscure 
his Auncestors, in bono' and Dignitye, although none can more 
illustrate there Predecessors, then they that obscure them in such 
sorte, and althougli much more might be spoken of the Lady Aston 
of the Offleys blood who was grandmother to this Lord Embassado' 
and Mrs. Joyce Gifford mother to Walter Giffard of Chillington 
Esquire both being Neeces to S' Thomas Offley, who from his 
youth to his ould age was a welbeloved Cittizen, a worthy 
marchant & a fortunate, a wise & a grave senat', by whose love 
«Sc ac<|uaintance his sisters were advanced in Marriage. Soe that 


from W™ Offley his Father are issued by good Fortune k Education, 
from the first wife in Stafford in the blood of the OfileyB in three 
discents above foure psons of bono' worship and gentillity. But 
it may be obiected that you show the Felicity of the man, but 
let us heare of his good k godly life, for it hath beene noted 
that bee hath beene too much given to the concupiscense of the 
flesh, & had Children illegittimate, noe marvell thereat for his wife 
«fe lady Dame Joane the Daughter Jc heire of Mr. John Nechells ; 
shee was civill vertuous ct learned, meeke, mercifull, iust, sound, 
and chaste, from her cradle utterly avoyding the concupiscence of the 
flesh, and after shee came to the yeares of forty shee gi'ew weake 
k infirme in body iKj mind, for in her youth shee would write k 
cast accompts, k receive k pay for all the pvission & accompts 
bestowed in the bowse, ^ by this infirmity shee was supposed 
not to contynue many yeares, whei-eas notw^hstanding shee lived 
above fourescore. And this S' Thomas Offley the husband being 
of a pure sanguine complexion, w<^h is naturally inclined to a 
voluptuous life, to fullfill the desires of the Flesh, yett god so 
wrought in his hart that his mouth should nott offend according 
to the Psalmist, for hee was wont to say if god had appointed 
him a Fellowship, to his & her Contents, hee would never have 
trodd his shoes awrye. And in the Judgm^ of men that was 
supposed that this lady after her such suddaine defect should 
not long continue, wherefore this S' Thomas made choice of a 
vertuous sober k discreet matron, the widow of one Mr. Pike, 
whom hee had thought lawfully to have enioyed, but true it is 
that man may purpose k suppose, but god is hee that Doth 
determine and Dispose. This gentlewoman for her knowledge and 
nurture, mafiers, wisdome and behavio"" was sought unto by many 
worshipfull Cittizens for the Educacon of there Children, in 
Knowledge, Nurture and behavio*", k not only Cittizens but also 
the worshipfull in Courte and Countrey. Ladyes of bono' and 
Nobillity by birth were taught k brought up at Bedd & Board 
by this Gentlewoman who was after marry ed to one Raymond, it 
was not knowne what became of that Raymond, but shee bare 
the name of Mrs. Raymond, And S*^ Thomas begatt 2 sons of 
her body, whom he vertuously brought up in learning, k they 
became good students in the University k hee provided them 
lyvings, wherein one of them liveth reverenced, for his calling 
place k learning, ^ in great creditt k love of his parishioners, 
the other Sz the elder god hath taken to his mercy. This Mrs. 
Raymond dwelt in the next house to the mansion howse of S' 
Tliomas, k for a long tyme shee dyned and supped w*h some 
of her Gentlewomen, that shee schooled at his Table ; but this 
Gentlewoman growing into yeares departed from S*" Thomas his 
howse *fe placed herselfe a Mile of [off] having pvided sufficient 
mainteynance for her selfe where shee also lived in great Creditt 
and love of her Neighb" k dyed rich, <fe left that to her son w«h 
shee had by Ramond who unthriftily spent it, k shortly after 
Dyed, unto this Gentlewoman resorted many tymes Mr. Henry 
Offley to vissitt her k to have her advice & Councell if any thing 


did trouble him in body or mind. But now to retume to this 
worsliipfuU K* although hee sometymes was addicted to the lusts 
of the flesh, to performe the pleasure thereof, yet as it hath beene 
afores**, hee never used his toung to sp)eake any lascivious word 
or idle speech, the one being the pvocation of nature Wh hath 
beene in many of the saynts of god, the other the instigation of 
the Divell; w^'h his sin in p'^formance of the lust of the Flesh is 
cleared & covered by Xte liis Savio*^ and hee received in this 
world a iust reward for that syn, for the exti^eame punishm* <fe 
agony of the goute pceeding out of the extraordinary lust of the 
flesh, w«h he was sore tormented withall twice in the yeare. In his 
old declining age tV in his extremity, lie wold repeate these words 
in Lattine, Ego vero vermis sum, I verely am a worme & noe 
man, the reproach of the people k an abiect of men, I came naked 
into the world <fe so shall depart hence againe. All the glory 
and pompe I have in this world is but a puffe ife a blast of wind ; 
It fell out soe by the will of the allmighty that hee tfe his ladie 
were sore tormented at one tyme, the one w^h the Ordinarie 
sickness of the goute, the other w'h the Sickness unto Death ; 
whereupon hee sent for his brother Robert Ofiley whose advice 
tk Counsell hee used in all his extremities, saying the tyme is, 
that my lady <fe wifes tyme now is come ; that shee is like to 
depart hence out of this world, I canot vissitt her for god hath 
visitted mee. And I desire you it my brother Hugh Offley, to helpe 
mee for pvisio for her Funerall, w^** Black «k yard kerchiifes, for 
fourscore poore weomen k five, blacks for o*" Freinds *k Kinsfolke, 
that this Funerall may be performed to the uttermost according 
to her calling and Degree ; spare not for cost although it cost a 
1000^* (k soe was she interred in a large Vault, Jk monum* p'pared 
for her <t for S' Thomas & the kinred & posterity of them & soe 
was shee accompanyed to the grave w^h funerall pompe of 
Heraulds, Baners <k Mourners, «k M'"s livery of Marchant Taylors: 
After that god had taken to his mercy this his fellowship, whom 
hee loved cherished & mainteyned according to her calling <k 
Degree, bearing w4iall her infirmityes, «fc knowing by gods word 
that the life of man was but seventy yeares, & the rest but sorrow 
& travell, he wold not marry againe though he was moved by 
many of his Freinds to match himselfe w^h a rich <fe vertuous 
widow lady of the Citty, but hee knowing that by such meanes 
he might hinder the estate of his posterity wold not hearken to 
that motion, but p^'pared himselfe to make a godly Si liberall 
testam^ And as he lived to god, so hee dyed to god, hee raised 
no Rents, nor tooke no Fynes of his tennants but what hee was 
urged unto by them, & then hee tooke no more then they offered 
tk willingly gave him, Hee was liberall to the poore & espetially 
to his poore parishion'"s & Ncighb^'s whom hee dayly releived, hee 
never sued man for Debt but one Clothier w*h whom hee com- 
pounded for halfe the Debt ik released him ; to all the prison's in 
& about Ix)ndon hee gave releife weekly, hee was one of the 
chiefe masters of Xtes Hospitall, hee never putt any money to 
usury, Hee trusted by the blood sheding of his Savio' that the 


blotts <fe Filthiness of his life were washed & cleane purged, & 
that hee might enter into the holy hill & Dwell in the Tabernacle 
of god, hee observed the precept of the xvth psalme; of his iust 
gotten goods, hee refreshed the bowells of the poore, supposing 
that to be the best usury, that is bestowed upon the Members 
of X^. And by his last will «k testament hee left all his 
Lands to his only son, tK: the one halfe of all his goods <t substance 
to his son likewise, And the other halfe for his Funeral Charges 
Sc expences Sc Legacies, wherein hee did nott forgett his Servants, 
his Kinred, & Fourscore & two Persons of poore people, w^h 
Gownes of good bt Cloth : hee remembred all the prisons in and 
about London liberally. Hee gave to Xtes Hospitall one hundred 
pounds, Hee gave to the towne of Stafford one hund'd pounds for 
young beginers for 2 yeares to trade w^hall (as his sister Kerton 
did in like mailer to the same towne), Hee gave 4 hundred 
Markes to be bes[t]owed upon poore honest maids marriages, upon 
poore schoUers in the University, In the mending of highwayes 
k other charitable uses, at the discretion of S*^ Tliomas Bromley 
K*- Lord Chancellor of England, Hugh Offley Alderman and 
Robert Offley his Broth', and John Offley <fe Richard Offley & 
his beloved servant John Weston his Overseers. And after his 
goods were this devided, betweene hLs sons his Funerall & 
Legacyes, the remainder likewise to be devided the one halfe to 
his soiie, <fe the other halfe to Charitable Uses at the discretio of 
his Execut% Hee gave also to the poore of the wai-d where hee 
was Alderma, Aldgate Warden, certaine wood 6i Coales at every 
tyme of Xtmas for seaven yeares after his Death. I canott 
remember all the good deeds, all the good benefitts but in parte 
I reioyce in this worthy K* when his savio*" shall^e his Judge 
and say unto him come thou blessed of my Father etc. Dwell 
in my Tabernacle enter into my holy hill thou shalt never be 
removed For when I was hungry thou gavest mec meate, when 
I was thirsty thou gavest mee drinke, when I was naked thou 
clothest mee, when I was in prison thou vissitest mee <fec. 

There was for a Yeares space after every moneth a sermon in 
remembrance of him : notwithstanding hee shalbe in everlasting 
remembrance, hee shall not be afraid of any evill tydings. A 
goodly monum* was erected for him in the Chancell of S^ Andrews 
Undershaft in London, His worshipfull Grandchild S*" John Offley 
hath his picture pendent in his Dyning Chamber, the sight whereof 
doth reioyce my hart so often as I behold it.

John Maunsell, a younger son of Thomas, the emigrant to Ireland 
in 1609, who was a younger brother of John Maunsell, the purchaser, 
in 1622, of the Thorpe Malsor estate) took possession of Thorpe 
Malsor accordingly and died there 27 Sep. 1739, in his 67th year, 
being ancestor of the Rev. Cecil Henry Maunsell, the present holder.^* 

[To be continued, with copies of extracts from parish registers, wills 
and other evidences, on which the additions to the pedigree of 1634 have 
been mostly based.] 


In all the literature of romance there is no more attractive 
figure than Arthur. The legend has always had a fascination for 
me ; and many an hour have I spent in vain endeavours to spin 
from it ever so slender a thread of history; but the task was 
like making ropes of sand, and I had not the wizard's secret. 
Eagerly therefore I took up Tfu; Genealogist, hoping that a more 
cunning hand than mine might prove to have achieved success. 

Mr. Scott-Gatty's tentative pedigree gives a sad blow to these 
hopes. It is needless to remind him that neither a duchy of 
Cornwall nor a kingdom of North Wales existed in Arthur's 
time : how then are we to accept a duke of the one in the 
fifth, and a king of the other in the third century, as real persons ? 
Helen again, mother of Constantine the Great, is said to have 
been a Dacian princess. Certain it is that from Greece sprang 
the original of her name, and that her son was bom in Dacia. 
Before we are asked to reject that story in favour of King 
Coel, it would be well at least to offer some show of reason, and 
some evidence that Constantius had visited Britain at an earlier 
date. And when a second Helen is put down, without any 
evidence, as mother of a second imperial Constantine, and daughter 
of a second British king, it makes one the more incredulous. 

But let us test the pedigree by dates. Of the same generation 
are the emperor who died in 306, and another slain in 388. 
History relates that Constantine the Great was bom in 272. 
In 313 he had a marriageable daughter; in 323 a son capable 
of commanding his fleet. His mother may have been born circa 
250; her father circa 225— certainly not much later than 230. 
Llewellyn is called his next brother : suppose we date his birth 

*** By this will he excluded the Jieir» of the body of John Maunsell, who 
purchased the estate, and substituted a collateral relative, Wz., one of the 
numerous male descendants of Thomas Maunsell, a younger brother of the 

'* See his descent set out more fullv, note 4. 


as late as 245, and his son's 290. That is to strain pi*obablities ; 
but even so we make Maximus all but one hundred at the time 
of his execution, over ninety when he embarked on a career of 
military adventure, and sixty or seventy at the most probable date 
for the birth of Constantine. Before proceeding further, would it 
not be well to refute the historians who represent him as a Spaniard, 
and Constantine (here called his son) as an adventurer of humble 
origin ] Lastly if, as it would seem, Constantine's sons were 
grown men in 411, how old was Ambrose when he overthrew 
Vortigern, and begot Arthur — assuming for the moment that 
Ambrose was his son, and that the dates assigned to Ambrose 
and Arthur are correct"? 

As a matter of fact these dates have no basis except a palpable 
mistranslation of Gildas, for which a gloss of Bede's seems to 
be responsible. Other chronologers put them thirty years or so 
later. What Gildas says is this.^ From the rise of Ambrose 
the war continued, with varying fortune, 

usque ad annam obsessionis Badonici montis [qui prope Sabrinum ostium 
habetur] noyissimsBquo ferme de furciferis non minimso stragis, quiquo 
quadrageaimus quartus, ut novi, orditur annus, mense jam primo emenso, 
qui jam et meas nativitatis est. 

Apart from textual variations, the sentence is characteristically 
obscure and anacoluthic, and its ' meaning may be open to question ; 
but no editor that I have seen has introduced into his text any 
mention of ** the landing of the Saxons,'' as in Bohn's translation, 
which Mr. Scott-Gatty quotes. The words orditur (or oritur^ 
whichever is the correct reading) and ut novi seem to me to 
shew conclusively that he is reckoning backward from the date 
of writing to Mount Badon ; while mense (not annm) is the 
natural antecedent to qui, I would therefore paraphrase thus : — 
The year now begun is, to my own knowledge, the forty-fourth 
since that event ; and one month is already over — the month of 
my birth." 

What then of Gildas — the one authority contemporary with the 
age of Arthur ; and how much does he tell us ] The Vita Gildce 
makes him one of four and twenty sons of a Scottish king; but 
that is scarcely credible, after reading his own description of the 
Scots.2 Others interpret the sentence above quoted to mean that 
he was bom in the year of Mount Badon, a sense which, it 
seems to me, the words will hardly bear; yet to square with 
that theory he has been split up into two, and a Gildas Badonicv^ 
invented. Internal evidence sliews that he was either a Roman 

^ For the text of Gildas and Nennius I have used Stevenson's edition 1838, 
the Monumenta Historica Britannica (ed. Hardy) 1848, and the Monumenta 
Oermanias Historica (ed. Mommsen) Berlin 1894. The punctuation is my own. 
I enclose in square brackets words accepted by some of these editors, but 
rejected by others. Those so treated in the passage here (}Uoted, if they be 
not a gloss, shew that the Bristol Channel was an unknown region to the 
writer ; though according to the Vita Oildx he resided principally at Glastonbury, 
and upon the Steep Holm in the Channel itself. 

' For the Picts and Scots Gildas expresses a peculiar abhorrence. The 
Saxons he represents as bloodthirsty and treacherous foes; but Piots and 
Scots as ridiculous and degraded savages as well. 


domiciled in BritaiD, or a Briton saturated with the Roman 
culture and traditions, who flourished in the sixth century. 
Latin is nostra lingita : Diocletian the lawful emperor, Maximus 
and the rest being mere upstarts and pretenders. On the other 
hand, the soil of Britain is in nostro cosspite : Picts, Scots and 
Saxons nostri inimici : even the sins and follies of the Britons 
ate upon his own head. He played in fact the part of a British 
Jeremiah. His admiration is all for Rome, the seat of religion 
and empire : the Roman character and institutions he contrasts 
with the vices and disorder of his own countrymen — their lack 
of courage, manliness, and stability ; their want of foresight ; their 
internecine feuds. The desperate struggle for existence, and their 
great deliverance, had taught them a lesson ; but a generation 
since grown up was fast lapsing. into the old vices. Of all this 
Gildas writes as within his own recollection. 

Unfortunately the History ^ so called, is not a narrative, but a 
piece of turgid rhetoric, involved and obscure. The facts it supplies 
might all be compressed into a paragraph or two. Moreover even 
in his time the materials for history were wanting. The land 
was desolate ; the cities in ruins ; the people reduced to savagery, 
or scattered upon other shores. In the absence of native records, 
he tells us, he wrote the tale of all that Britain did and suffered 
under the Roman emperors as best he could, 

non tam ex scripturis patria3 scriptommvo monimentis, quippe quae vel 
si qua foerint aut ignibus hostinm exusta. [suDt] aut civium exsilii classe 
long^ua deportata non compareant, quam transmarina relatione, qua) crebris 
inmpta intcrcapedinibus non satis claret. 

In other words, continental authors supplied him with brief 
notices of the conquest of Britain, the careers of Constantius, the 
two Constantines, and Maximus, the appeal to Aiitius, and so 
forth ; but even then he could find no means of filling the gaps 

Maximus he seems to represent as British born ;^ but for a fact 
two centuries before his own time he is no better authority than 
another. As for Ambrose, he flatly contradicts Mr. Scott-Gatty 
(whom Bohn's translation seems again to have misled) and says 
distinctly that his parents, Romans, no doubt of official rank, met 
their deaths (not in the struggle for the empire, but) in the 
Saxon invasion. So much for the conjecture that Constantine the 
emperor was his father. But once more I quote the passage: — 

. . . duce Ambroeio Anrcliano, viro modeato, qui solus [fuit comis fidelis 
fortis veraxque] forte Romanov pentis [qui] tanta> tempestatis collisione 
occisis in eadcm parcntibus purpura nimirum indutis superfuerat : cujus 
nunc temporibus nostris soboles magnopere avita bonitato degeneravit . . . 

Nor does Gildas say that the soboles Ambrosii "provoke to 
battle their cruel conquerors," as Bohn has led Mr. Scott-Gatty 
to suppose,^ but that the remnant of the Britons under Ambrose 
himself took heart of grace and did so. Lastly, the word soboles 

' Insula germen sua) plantationis amarissim«^ ad Gallias Maximum mittit. 

' One word of comment on this remarkable production. Not only is the 
translation slipshod to a degree, but in each of these instances it turns out 
to be utterly wrong and misleading. I have already pointed to an instance 
where it imports words not found in the text. 


(if it have any precise application) cannot possibly refer to Arthur. 
His firm and enlightened rule (if he ever did rule) was already 
past and over when Gildas wrote. 

The EpUtola GUdcs seems to indicate the persons really meant. 
That Jeremiad selects for special reprobation or admonition five 
contempoi*ary kinglets : (i) Constantine,^ " tyrannical whelp of the 
foul Damnonian lioness," who that very year violated the sanctuary, 
and put to the sword two young princes of the blood royal; 
(ii) young Aurelius Conan [or Caninus] another " lion's whelp " j 
(iii) greyhaired Vortipor, tyrant of the Demetse, " infamous son 
of a good king " ; (iv) Cuneglas, whose name is wrested into the 
Latin lq,nio fulwSy " bloody butcher," in order to fasten upon 
him that opprobrious description- ; (v) Maglocun, " the island 
dragon," a mighty warrior who had the best of masters, overcame 
a king his uncle in his youth,^ and despoiled many tyrants of life 
and kingdom. Among these, on several grounds, one is tempted 
to seek the seed of Arthur and of Ambrose ; though indeed, so far 
as the testimony of Gildas goes, there might be no Arthur at all, 
but Ambrose the hero of Mount Badon and saviour of his race. 

From Gildas we turn to " the collection of Welsh and Anglian 
legends which passes under the name of Nennius,"* to which the 
date here assigned is circa 796 Other writers have supposed it 
a good deal later ; but the point is of little consequence. Between 
this work and the age of Arthur admittedly lies not merely the 
gulf of centuries, but a great national cataclysm. If Gildas had 
to deplore the absence of documents, few indeed can have survived 
the renewed struggle with the Saxons and their final victory. The 
consequences soon appear. Constantius, who died in Britain, is 
here the son, not the father, of Constantine the Great. Yet these 
were not obscure personages, unrecorded in the annals of their 
time. Note the introduction of the marvellous — the miracles of 
St. German and St. Patrick ; the death of Guortigirn by fire 
from heaven. Ambrosius now becomes homio sine patre, tlie fruit 
of a sort of immaculate conception ;^ though turning the page 
we find in this curious patchwork a second and contradictory 
account taken from Gildas. " Uyiun est pater metis de coiisulibus 
BomanicoB gentis^ The contemporary author tells us plainly that 
the Saxon war was long and doubtful. Here we read another 
story — an invincible hero, and unbroken success : — 

* Is this Constantine ap Tydwal, brother of the King of Little Britain ? 
This Constantine, at any rate belongs to a generation subsequent to the 
settlement of Armorica, to which Damnonia lay nearest on the opposite 

* Also "urse multomm sessor aurigaque currus receptaculi ursi." The 
expression recalls the gloss on Nennius which renders Arthur " ursus 
horribilis," and seems to suggest for his name the etymology Arcturus. 

^ This description cannot fail to remind us of the story of Modred. 

* Elton, Origins of English History. The editors discourse at length about 
the date of this book ; and by common consent it comes tu us as a patchwork 
executed by various hands at widely different dates. 

* The story attributed by later writers not to Uther Pciidragon but to 
Merlin. A gloss (which has found its way into Hardy's text) suggests 
that the mother was lying in order to shield her child from danger. Compare 
the mystery of Arthur's birth. 


Corraenmt in nno die nongenti sexaginta viri de uno impetu Arthur, et 
nemo prostravit eos nisi ipse solos ; et in omnibus bellis victor exstitit. 

In short, we have passed already from history to the realm 
of fiction and romance ; and no modern " Vindication " can disguise 
the fact. 

The texts of Nennius vary more widely even than those of 
Gildas. But all the editors I have seen read that Ambrose 
Juit rex inter omnes reges Britianicce gentis, not in omius regiones 
Brittanice, Whatever that may mean, to write of an elective 
monarchy looks to me like anachronism. It was not " the 
natives," but Guorthigim, to whom he had previously been a 
cause of apprehension, as the narrative goes on to explain. 
When Arthur jrugnahat contra illos cum regibus Brittonum, sed 
ipse dux erat bellorum, the sentence, fully quoted, need not exclude 
him from royal rank. The passage which contains the expression 
Arthur map uter is only found upon the margin of one MS., 
though for some inexplicable reason it was intei*polated in the 
text of Hardy's edition. The glossator himself, so far from making 
v4er a person's name, or even a title, translates tlie two words 
JUiiM horribilis. So much for the mighty TJther Pendragon ! 

Arthur thus remains, and must remain, a hero of romance : in 
history, the shadow of a shade. ^ Mr. Scott-Gatty's courageous 
attempt to clothe him with substance has painfully emphasised our 
doubts. His very existence is matter of faith, not of knowledge. 

** Rain, rain, and sun ! a rainbow on the lea ! 
And truth is this to me, and that to thee : 
And truth or clothed or naked let it be. 

" Rain, sun, and rain ! and the free blossom blows : 
Sun, rain, and sun ! and where is he who knows ? 
From the great deep to the great deep he goes." 

But if there be no evidence of his wisdom and his valour, 
there is even less, perhaps, of the frailties and vices attributed 
to him. While some of his exploits recall Samson and the 
Maccabees, his incestuous amours read like an echo of the story 
of Amnon. We are* thus at liberty to picture our hero as near 
spotless as we choose. As a legendary figure — saviour of his 
country, the dauntless champion of a lost cause, he is incomparable. 
We cannot part with him. Though he yield up to Ambrose his 
kingship amopg kings, or even the victory of Mount Badon, 
among the unnamed chieftains who shared the glory and anguish 
of that deadly strife, there is room for him still. With that we 
must needs be content ; for vain would be the liope that, from 
some far off Egyptian midden, may yet be unearthed the evidences 
lost even before the day when Gildas wrote. 

W. H. B. B. 

* I am surprised to find Mr. Scott-Gatty writing of Arthur's bid for the 
empire as if that were history. Had it been so, we should certainly hear 
of it from foreign annalists. When his name had become the centre of a 
legend cycle, the deeds of others tended, as usual, to crystallise round it. 
In this story, for example, we may sec the rise of Constantine, or Maximns, 
or as some have thought, of Charlemagne.

The above is the early part of the Thoresby pedigree entered by 
Sir W. Dugdale. According to the researches made by .Mr. A. S. 
Ellis (see Thoresby Soc. Miscellanea, vol. ix, 112) it is manifestly 
incorrect, though as the antiquary was only seven years old at the 
time, he is not responsible for it. 

Mr. Ellis considers it doubtful if Ralph Thoresby (VII) ever 
existed. The branch at West Cottingwith had b^n there for 
some generations and left their wills, three of which are copied 
by Mr. Ellis. He thinks it probable that it descends from John, 
a second son of Qeorge Thoresby (II).

Robert Fitz Gerald. — Who are the representatives of Robert 
Fitz Gerald, of the Dorset Domesday? 


Cheke or Cheek Family. — It is stated in Burke*s "General 
Armory " that the Chekes of Evesham are descended from Sir John 
Cheke, preceptor to Edward VI. I liave a pedigree of the Evesham 
family carried back to Solomon Cheke, living in the middle of the 
eighteenth century. 

If any reader of The Genealogist could refer me to record evidence 
of the above-mentioned Solomon Cheke's descent from the preceptor's 
family, I should feel greatly obliged.

Hamilton of Broomhill and Somerville Families. — Can any of 
your readers identify the James Somerville, of Cambusnethan, who 
married Elizabeth Hamilton, of Broomhill. She died 1665. Where 
can I see a good tree of the Broomhill family? 

S. A. B. 

Rev. Anthony Warton, 1581 — 1664. — I shall be obliged by any 
clue to his parents at Walton, liancashire, where he was born. He 
was at lincoln College, Oxford, 1596 — 1600; ordained, 1607; and 
Curate of Hamsey, Sussex, the same year. From 1626 to 1661 he 
was Curate at Breamore, Hants. His will in P.C.C. sheds no light 
on his ancestors or place of abode previously to Breamore. His son 
Francis was father of Anthony Warton, 1650 — 1715, of Godalming,

In his criticism ci my paper on King Arthur, Mr. B. accnaes 
me of carelessness in preparing it — this I candidly admit ; of mis 
leading my readers by quoting Dr. GUes' translation of GUdas — this 
I am not so sure about, and will presently consider; of quoting 
passages from Nennius that do not appear in the text — this I deny 
and will prove later on ; and, finaUy, of making a general chronological 
bungle of the whole situation. As to this, as far as my paper 
covered the ground, i.e., from a.d. 382 to 493, the chronology is 
absolutely feasible. The connection between Mazimus and Constantine 
the Great I must allow is weak, and I regret having quoted this 
particular Welsh tradition, which, after all, had very little bearing 
upon the subject my paper dealt with. My authority for it was 
The ffendre Book, and my reason for quoting it was that I am strongly 
inclined to think there was some such connection between these 
two men. One fact with regard to this criticism I must say very 
much surprises me. Mr. B., who poses as a student of the 
Arthurian legend, has missed, or entirely ignored, the only two 
novelties in my paper, the only two points, in fact, worthy of 
consideration or criticism, and for which alone the paper was 
written. The story and traditional ancestry of Arthur is known 
to every student of British or Welsh history, and every one is 
at liberty to believe it or not as they like. The sole object of 
my paper was to lay before my readers two possibilities — (I) 
that the mythical Uther Pendragon might be identical with tne 
historical Ambrosius Aurelianus; pleading that as the word Uther, 
used as a proper name, is unknown in Welsh genealogies, with 
the exception of the traditional father of Arthur, and as the term 
" Uther Pendragon " might be translated as meaning " the wonderful, 
horrible, or victorious commander in chief," it might, after all, be 
a 7iom de guerre for Ambrosius : (2) that the Cystennyn Vendigaid, 
or Constantine the Blessed, son of Tydwall, King of Armorica, with 
his son Constans, a monk, of Welsh tradition, might be identical 
with the historical Constantine the Usurper, with his son Constans, 
4 monk. The only notice Mr. B. takes of these two novelties is, 
in the one instance an exclamation of "so much for the mighty 
Uther Pendragon," of which, I must admit, I don't quite see the 
relevancy, and in the other a suggestion that Constantine ap Tydwall 
was identical with Constantine of Damnonia, mentioned by Gildas 
in his Epistola as then living ! ! 

Mr. R asks for further data. I therefore give such data as con- 
cisely as possible in the form of a tentative chronological sum- 
mary. I must ask my readera to remember that this summary, 
as was my paper, is based upon the assumption that the battle 
of Badon Mount was fought circa 492-3 and not A.D. 516, which 
is the date given in the Annalea Cambrice. This date circa 492-3 
throws King Arthur back twenty-three years, and so brings all the 
leading characters of this epoch within chronological touch of one 




382 A.D. Maximus, by birth a Briton,^ or a Spaniard,' or from 
parts near Britain,^ was in command of the Roman army of 
occupation in Britain. The army revolt, and elect him 
Emperor of the West.* 

388 A.D. Maximus was beheaded at Aqoileia, and his son Victor 
was slain at Yienne.* 

Welsh tradition claims Maximus as a Briton, and gives him 
by Helen his wife, who was daughter and heir of Eudhaf, 
King of Britain, the following sons : — Owain Vinddu, Ednyved, 
Peblig, and Cystennyn.* He is mentioned by Gildas, Bede, 
and Nennius. 

400 A.D. [N.R, this is quite a possible date for the birth of 
Ambi*osius Aurelianus, or it might be placed even earlier.] 

407 A.D. The army in Britain again revolt and elect one Marcus, 
Emperor of the West, but shortly after kill him. They then 
elect one Gratian, a Briton, to the same post; he reigned 
only four months and was, like his predecessor, put to death. 
Constantino, another Briton, was then elected Emperor of 
the West.* 

Welsh tradition states that Gratian the Usurper was killed 
both by Constantine, son of Maximus, and by Constantino, 
son of Tydwall.* 

407-11 A.D. Constantine, a Briton, of low extraction,^ no obscure 
person,® serving in the army of occupation in Britain, was, 
upon the death of Gratian the Usurper, elected Emperor 
of the West by the army. Passing into Gaul he gained a 
great victory over the Vandals, upon which Honorius the 
Emperor, against his will, recognised his election by sending 
him the Imperial robe. He had a son called Constans, who 
was a monk, but of whom he nevertheless made a Csesar. 
Gerontius, a British general commanding the forces in Spain, 
thinking he had been slighted, caused a revolt in the army 
against Constantine, the outcome of which was that Con- 
stantino and his son Julian were murdered at Aries, and 
Constans Csesar, late a monk, was slain at Vienne an^ 411^. 

Welsh tradition states that Cystennyn Vendigaid, or Con- 
stantine the Blessed, grandfather of Eling Arthur, was second 
son of Tydwall, King of Armorica. At the request of the 
Britons he landed here with an army to assist them against 
the Picts and Scots. He slew Gratian, and was thereupon

elected King of Britain. He married a Roman lady, and had 
issue by her three sons. Constans, the eldest, was a monk, yet 
nevertheless succeeded to the throne of Britain ; Emrys Wledic, 
or Ambrosius Aurelianus, the second son; and Uther Pen- 
dragon, the third son, father of King Arthur. Constantino 
and his son Constans, the monk, were both slain at the 
instigation of Vortigern, a Briton, who thereupon seized 
the British throne.^ At the time of this occurrence, both 
Ambrosius Aurelianus and Uther Pendragon were children.^ 

448-9 AD. Anterior to this date Ambrosius was leading a faction 
against Vortigem.^ The Saxons, under the leadership of 
Hengist and Horsa, landed in Kent.^ 

455 A.D. Ambrosius and Yortimer, son of Vortigern, gained a 
victory over the Saxons at the battle of Aylesford.^ 

456-63 A.D. [N-B. Between these dates Ambrosius was elected 
supreme King of Britain.] 

463 A.D. [N.B. This is a possible date for the birth of King 
Arthur. Mallory, in his Mortt Dartur, opens with this 
sentence : — '* It befel in the dayes of Uther Pendragon when 
he was kynge of all England." This must have been after 
Vortigern had been deposed. He then proceeds to relate 
the meeting of Uther (1 Ambrosius) and Igrayne, and the 
birth of Arthur. In cap. iii he writes : — ** Thenne within 
two yeres kyng Uther felle soke of a grete maladye." The 
two years are computed from Arthur's birth, and Uther 
(1 Ambrosius) dies of the "grete maladye." From the above 
one may fairly say that Arthur's father was probably a man 
advanced in years.] 

465 A.D. Ambrosius Aurelianus was completely routed by the 
Saxons.^ Concerning Ambrosius, Gildas states that his parents 
had worn the purple.^ Bede writes of them : — " regium nomen 
et insignia ferentibtf^."^ Camden writes of Ambrosius : — 
" But Gildas and Bede write that his ancestors were Emperors, 
and slain here, and if so, why may not I positively affirm 
that he was descended from that Constantino, who under the 
4th Consulship of Theodosius the younger, out of the hopes 
that good fortune would attend that name, was chosen 
Emperor in Britain, and afterwards murdered at Aries."' 

' This statement cannot be taken literally. Vortigern no donbt, either in 
blood or politicallj, represented the faction that brought abont the deaths 
of Constantine and his son Constans, as Ambrosias evidently held him 
responsible for the same, but Vortigern could not be identical with Gerontius.

Mr. B., on the other hand, in his criticism, thus writes of 
Ambrosius: — "As for Ambrose, he [i.c., Gildas] flatly con- 
tradicts Mr. Scott-Qatty (whom Bohn's translation seems again 
to have misled) and says distinctly that his parents, Romans, 
no doubt of official rank, met their deaths (not in the struggle 
for the empire, but) in the Saxon invasion. So much for 
the conjecture that Constantino the emperor was his father." 
According to Nennius, Ambrosius was leading a faction 
against Vortigern anterior to the Saxon landing in 449, how 
then could his parents, who were dead at that time, have been 
killed in an invasion which had not yet taken place, or 
Ambrosius be the sole survivor of the samel What Qildas 
does say is that Ambrosius alone had survived the upheaval 
of that great storm, the same in which his parents, who had 
been undoubtedly raised to the purple, had perished. Why 
should not this same storm have been one of those that shook 
the whole of Western Europe on the gradual decline of the 
great Roman Empire? In one of these upheavals we know 
that Constantino the Usurper, and Constans his son, the 
monk, both came to an untimely end. 

478 A.D. [Wehh tradition states that Arthur was fighting at the 
early age of 15.] 

488 A.D. Arthur was fighting against Ochta, son of Hengist, as 
Dtuc bellorum cum regibus Britonum.^ 

493 A.D. Arthur won the battle of Badon Mount, which was 
the last of a series of twelve battles.* Concerning Arthur — 
Nennius often alludes to him, but Qildas and Bede do not 
mention him by name. Geoffrey of Monmouth puts these 
words into Arthur's mouth when addressing his troops before 
his expedition against Rome : — " Likewise Constantino, the 
son of Helena and Maximian [Maximus] who were both 
my kinsmen, and both wore the crown of Britain, gained 
the imperial throne of Rome."^ Yet in the body of his 
work he makes Arthur to be the son of Uther Pendragon, 
nephew of Ambrosius, and grandson of Constantino, the 
brother of the King of Brittany.^ Mallory in his Morte 
Dartur also makes Arthur say : — " I have understood that 
Bellinus and Brenius kynges of Bretayne have had thempyre 
in their handes many dayes. And also Constantino the sone 
of Heleyne which is open evydence that we owe noo trybute 
to Rome but of ryght we that ben descended of them have 
ryght to clayme the tytle of thempyre ;"^ but in the story 
he IB son of Uther Pendragon. 

516 A.D. This is to my mind a possible date for the battle of 
Camlan, in which Arthur was mortally wounded. I am well

aware that the evidence is not sufficiently strong to establish 
this date as that of the battle, but there are indications 
that it might be such, which I here give. 

The date given in the Annales Cambrim is 537. ^^Chieitk 
Candan in qiujt Arthur et Medraut coT^ruere ;" but this same 
authority gives the date 516 as that of Badon Mount, which 
there is every reason to suppose is not correct; nevertheless, 
it would seem to indicate that there was a battle fought in 
516, in wliich Arthur took part. In The Hendre Book I 
find attached in the margin to the following individuals, the 
accompanying dates: — 

Constantius Chlorus, an^ 305. 

Emrys Wledic or Ambrosius Aurelianus, an® 466. 

King Arthur, an** 516. 

We know that Constantius died at York in 306 ; that 
Ambrosius was, according to Mr. Gardiner, overthrown in 
465. How about the date 516 to Arthur? It looks to 
me as though the compiler of The Hendre Book was at any 
rate guessing at the dates of the death of these men. 

In the same work it is stated of Caswalhon La whir or 
Caswallon with the Longhand, King of North Wales, and 
father of Maglocune or Maelgwn Gwynedd, that : — ** he was 
slaine one the parte of Kinge Arthur at Camlan field 
against Medrod." Welsh tradition says that Maelgwn succeeded 
his father as King of North Wales in 517.^ 

On turning to the Anglo Saxon Chronicle we find that 
after this date 516, the West Saxons made great headway 
under Cerdic and Cynric, his son, who had landed in 
Britain A.D. 495. 

"519. This year Cerdic and Cynric obtained the kingdom 
of the West Saxons, and the same year they fought against the 
Britons, where it is now called Cerdicsford. And that time 
forth the royal offspring of the West Saxons reigned," etc. 

This all looks as though the Britons were unable any 
longer to hold the Saxons in check. What better reason 
could there be than the loss of their great leader. King 
Arthur 1 

I will now proceed to answer some of Mr. B's criticisms, which 
have not been replied to in the foregoing summary. 

Helen, mother op Constantine the Great. — Mr. B. says 
she was probably a Dacian princess, and that her son was certainly 
born in Dacia. He does not give his authorities, but I suppose 
they are Cedrenus, an eleventh, and Nicephorus Callistus, a fourteenth 
century writer. On the other hand, Fl : Lucius Dexter, a fourth 
century historian writes : — " Ah anno 306 SiLccesserat in imperiOf 
Gvhemationeque HispanicBj Constantio patri Constantinua Jiliits cogno- 

* Williams' Eminent Welshmen^ p. 311; Cambrian Biography (Owen), p. 236; 
and Liber Landavensis, p. 348, note. 


mento Magnus ex Helena foemiiw, primaria BrUannice"^ The whole 
of this matter has been fully argued out by Mr. Morant, in his 
history of Colchester,* and to that work I would refer Mr. B., 
where he will find that the weight of evidence is in favour of 
Helena being a Briton, and that no one knows for a certainty 
where Constantino the Great was bom. 

CoNSTANTius Chlobus. — Mr. B. says I ought to show that 
Constantius was in this island at a date prior to that when he 
is known to have been here. As far as I know he makes his 
debut in the pages of history as Governor of Dalmatia, circa 283 ; 
where he resided anterior to that date no one knows. Zosimus 
states that he lived for the most part in Britain.^ It is a well- 
known fact that after he had been declared Emperor he still lived 
at York, where he died in the year 306. Also that Constantino 
the Great, his son by Helena, the year after his conversion to 
Christianity, summoned to the Council of Aries, A.D. 314, three 
British Bishops, thereby recognising the British Church as a 
branch of the true Catholic faith. Why this interest in, I might 
almost say affection for, this far-off island by these two Emperors 
of Rome? 

I may here add that Gildas does not mention either Constantius 
or the two Constantines in his De Hocddio, as stated by Mr. B. 

GiLDAs' Parentage. — Mr. B. scoffs at the idea of Gildas being 
one of twenty-four sons of a Scottish king [not that I ever said 
he was]. His reason for scoffing is that Gildas wrote so strongly 
against the Scots ! This is not what is generally said of his 
parentage; he is stated to have been one of twenty-four sons of 
Ring Caw, a North British chieftain, whose territories no doubt 
lay north of the now defined Scottish border, but the North 
Britons were a totally different race from the barbaric Scots, the 
associates of the Picts ; they were, in fact, their bitterest enemies. 
No wonder Gildas used strong language. One of the vices of the 
age was, according to Gildas, concubinage — it produces large families. 

Nennius.— Mr. B. writes: — "From Gildas we turn to *the 
collection of Welsh and Anglian legends, which passes under the 
name of Nennius ' ... in short, we have passed already from 
history to the realm of fiction and romance." What ancient chronicler 
has ever existed who at times has not given way to marvellous 
recitals, some of which contain the sternest truths of life here and 
hereafter 1 But let us keep Mr. B. to his authors — Gildas, the 
historian; Nennius, the romancer. I wonder whether Mr. B. has read 
in Gildas the story of St. Alban crossing the river Thames, the 
waters dividing for him, as in the Red Sea incident in Holy writ 1 
This is quite as marvellous as anything related in Nennius, and 
it is further a somewhat vulgar miraculous incident without any 
symbolical or allegorical meaning underlying it, such as one finds 
in the Nennius recitals. It is impossible for me here to enter

into a vindication of Nennins, and if I did I should only quote 
Professor Zimmer^s able w<»ic, Sennius VindieatuSj which, after 
all, Mr. R can read. Professor Zimmer has spent many jeam of his 
life in making a most careful and elaborate analytical study of this 
chronicle, or rather these chronicles, and I feel sure Mr. R will 
forgive me if I prefer the opinion of this learned German Professor 
to his harried and somewhat pointless remarks upon this work. 
I must here apologise for having taken for granted that Mr. Petrie 
selected to edit for that great work, Monumenta Ilistorica Britanniea^ 
the oldest edition of Nennius; on referring to the preface I find he 
selected a more modem one, but the one which he considered to be 
the most authentic^ the same edition, in fact, that had been 
edited by Dr. Gale. This manuscript is in the Public Library 
at Cambridge, and in the text of it appears the ^^ Artur 
Mah Uter^^ paragraph, and also the sentence about Ambrosius, 
" qui Juerat rex in omneB regiones BriiannitB,^*^ The " Artur Mab 
Uter*^ sentence also occurs as a marginal note in a MS. lettered 
by Mr. Petrie "B." My critic says that neither of these appear 
in the text. While upon this matter I notice that he seems 
to shy at my expression about Ambrosius being elected Ring 
of Britain. He says "to write of an elective monarchy looks to 
me like anachronism." It did not look so to that sixth century 
historian Gildas, however. In § 21 he describes the luxury that 
followed the victory of the Britons over the Picts and Soots, after 
the vain appeal to .^tius, when they were driven to bay in their 
mountains, and at last rallied. He says that they anointed wicked 
kings.' These kings in their turn were put to death by their 
own anointers,^ and others and worse were elected.^ For this and 
other reasons which could be cited, it looks as though the Supreme 
Kingship of Britain was elective. 

Gildas db Excidio, § 26. — Bede, who wrote under 200 years 
after Gildas, and evidently copied him as to this paragraph, as 
he uses almost the same words, gathered from it that the battle 
of Badon Mount took place forty-four years after the landing of 
the Saxons; no doubt he had before him a less corrupt edition 
of Gildas than now exists. The oldest MS. known to be in 
existence to-day is a copy made not earlier than the end of the 
twelfth century, and deposited in the Public Library at Cambridge. 
Bede's words are: — ^^ Et ex eo tempore nunc cives nunc hoatea vince- 
bantf usque ad annum obsessionis Badonici montisy qua/ndo non 
minimas eiadem hoatibus atragea dabant, xl^^ circiter et iiii^ anno 
adventua eorum in Brittaniam"^ 

Camden also evidently takes the same reading. He writes : — 
** The Saxons indeed, about the forty-fourth year after their landing 
in Britain, by a breach of articles renewing the war, laid siege

to this city [i.^., Bath], but being surprised by the warlike Arthur, 
they betook themselves to Badon hill, where (though in a desperate 
condition) they fought it out, and were slain in great numbers. 
This s^ms to be the same hill with that we now call Banesdown, 
hanging over a little village near the city named Bath Stone, and 
showing at this day its bulwarks, and a rampire. I know there 
are some who seek for it in Yorkshire; but let Gildas himself 
restore it to this place, for in an old manuscript copy of him 
in the Cambridge Library, where he treats of the victory of 
Aurelius Ambrosius, he says : — * To the year of Badon hill siege, 
which is not far from the mouth of the Severn,^ "^ 

Monsieur de la Borderie, in his interesting paper entitled "The 
date of the Birth of Gildas,'"^ takes it for granted that Bede 
copied Gildas, and by introducing into Gildas* text ceiiAin words 
out of Bede's, he gets therefrom the date of Badon Mount as taking 
place fourty-four years after the Saxon landing, and the date of 
the birth of Gildas as being identical with that of the battle, viz., 
493, thus : — " Et ex eo tempore nunc cives nv/nc hoates vincebant, 
usque ad annum obseeitionis Badonici montis novisaimxEque /emie de 
furciferie non minimce atragisj quique qu^ragesimus quartua [ad- 
ventua eorum in Britanniam^ ut novi, oritur anntM, menae jam uno 
emenao, qui et meas nativitatia eat" The words introduced I have 
placed between brackets. These four words, as he says, make sense 
of this otherwise incomplete passage. 

Dr. Giles, who edited the Bohn edition, also gathers from § 26 
the date of Badon Mount and the birth of Gildas. 

Feeling quite incompetent to enter the lists with such a galaxy 
of scholars, each of whom seems to take his own line on this matter, 
and not feeling at all contented with Mr. B.'s paraphrase of the 
same passage, I sent my paper, together with Mr. B.'s criticism, 
to a friend of undoubted high scholastic attainments. I have his 
consent to publish his epitome of the situation. He writes as 
follows : — 

*' In his preface Gildas describes, his own language as ' poor, 
though well meaning' [vUi licet atf/lo, tamen benigno]. It is 
unfortunate that it should be held to be so poor that no scholar 
can refrain from enriching it with additions, so as to make it 
bear his own well-meaning interpretations. 

"But Gildas is so important for his period — he is the only 
contemporary evidence we have — that it is well worth yet 
another effort to arrive at, not what he may have meant, but what 
he actually says. 

"His attitude and purpose are given us in his preface [§ 1] 'I 
have resolved,* he says, *to describe the ventures in fierce warfare 
not so much of the most valiant warriors as of the indolent.' It is 
plain, therefore, that there are * valiant warriors * to whom he 
will not do justice. The one person whom he unreservedly 
commends, he passes over in a sentence; he does not even name 

* Camden*§ Britannia^ 1695 ed., p. 70. 

* ** La date de la naissance de Gildas " (If. de la Borderie, Bevue Celtique, 
vol. vi, p. 1-13). 


tbe Idiig who is responsible for what he calls *the present peace 
and justioe ' [§ 26, prtBteniiM werenitaiu ac justiiia] which had, when 
he wrote, lasted a generation. 

**He confesses [§ 1] he has held his tongue for 10 yean or more 
out of componction, and contrition, and bewild«7nent, but at last 
has yielded to the pressure of his friends. What was the event 
whu^ ten years before had put into his head to write his 
* Hisioriola ' / Who was it whose hand had brought ' ^ereniias 
ae jtuiitia' to the land, whose departure was the signal for the 
headlong rush tui Tariara of his successors, and whose memory 
kept Gildas silent for more than ten years? 

*' What does Gildas actuaUy say about the course of events 
from the landing of the Saxons to the time of his writing] If 
this period was under 100 years, it would be well within his power 
to have heard of the events from actual survivors, as no one 
supposes that he was under forty years old when he wrote. 

"\% ^^]- ^ ^h® ^^ place he says, the Saxons were called in 
by Uurthi£;em and for sometime [miUto tempore] were kept quiet 
by doles [§ 24]. Becoming discontented with tnese they set to 
ravaging the land on their own account [§ 25]. But after a time 
[tempore aliquanio itUervenierUe] the remnant of the Britons arose 
under Ambrosius and at last were given the victory [§ 26]. After 
the time of Ambrosius [ex eo tempore] th^ struggle was uncertain, 
until the decisive victory of Badon Mount The year of Badon 
Mount is the forty-fourth year. After that victory, for a time the 
Britons lived properly, but the witnesses of ^is unhoped for 
deliverance passing away [illis deeedentibus]^ a new generation has 
arisen of men who cannot remember the struggle and who are 
conscious of the present calm and justice. These, except a very 
few [pauci valde pattcx] are rushing daily to Hell. 

" what does this plain tale amount to 1 The Saxons are supposed 
to have landed in 449 A. D. A few years of doles to an ever 
increasing and insatiable invader would seem a long time and 
account for Gildas' expression ' tntUto tempore.' Ajiother few years 
of ravaging and desolation would pass the * aliquantum tempus ' 
up to Ambrosius' success. There are sixteen years between the 
landing of the Saxons and Ambrosius' death in 465, if that is the 
date. If Arthur was born two years before Ambrosius' death, 
the date of his birth will be 463. If he began fighting at the 
traditional age of fifteen, he fought his first battle in 478, and 
would have fifteen years for the rest of the twelve battles to bring 
the battle of Badon Mount, and his twelfth and last battle to 

" Gildas says the year of Badon Mount dawns or begins the forty- 
fourth year ; this he knows as sure as he knows the date of his 
own birth. The forty-fourth year of what] Does he not mean 
what Bede understood him to mean, the forty-fourth year of the 
struggle, and therefore the forty-fourth year from the landing of 
the Saxons] 

"For the memory of the importance of this battle to have died 
out we must allow twenty to thirty years at least, which will bring 



us to 513 or 523. For ten years or more the degenerate stock 
have heen rushing to Hades, and Gildas has held his hand over 
his mouth. He must at anyrate then be writing after 523 or 533. 
If Arthur's death in 516 at the battle of Camlan was the cause 
and commencement of this ten years of evil living, it would give 
526 or a few years after as the date of Gildas' warning. 

'* Mr. B., in his paraphrase of Gildas' sentence about Badon 
Mount is just as arbitrary and inexact as the translator whom 
he condemns. Everyone must agree that whatever he meant, what 
Gildas said is *the year of Badon Mount, which dawns (or begins) 
the fourty-fourth year, as I know well.' Mr. B. paraphrases thus : 
* The year now begun is, to my knowledge, the forty-fourth since 
that event.' He proceeds at once to ask, * What then of Gildas, 
the one authority contemporary with the age of Arthur; and how 
much does he tell usi' He may well ask." 

Although Dr. Giles' somewhat free translation of Gildas § 25, 
when he states that it was the aoboles of Ambrosius who goaded 
the cruel conquerors to battle, cannot be accepted, yet this in no 
way affects my case. All I wanted from Gildas was that which 
even Mr. B. cannot deprive me of, viz : — That the parents of 
Ambrosius had been adorned with the purple, and had met with 
untimely deaths in the struggles [not Saxon, as Mr. B asserts] of 
the times. That Ambrosius alone of his race had survived the 
same, and was Commander in chief of the British forces in a 
series of battles, which series preceded another series, the latter 
ending with the great victory of Badon Mount. It is from 
Nennius, not Gildas, that I gather that the name of the Commander 
in chief of this second series was Arthur. It is also from Nennius, 
not Gildas, that I gather that it could not be Ambrosius who 
' led the forces at Badon Mount, as he was fighting ante 449, and 
would have to be of an abnormal age to be alive and on active 
service in 493, or, as Mr. B. would have it, 516. 

In conclusion, I feel that an apology is due to the Editor 
and readers of The Genealogist, in that so much of the valuable 
space of their periodical has been taken up with this subject of 
King Arthur, which, after all, is not of universal interest. I trust, 
therefore, that Mr. h, will now allow the matter to drop. He 
asked me for fuller data ; I have given such data to him. I have 
also answered his criticisms, and I hope that unless he has some . 
new light to throw upon the two points raised by me, viz., 
the identity of Uther Pendragon with Ambrosius Aurelianus, and 
that of Constantine the Blessed with Constantine the Usurper, he 
will allow the memory of Arthur to drift back again into limba

much wools, <fe after the loss of Callice the staple was kept at 
Bruges in Flanders, where he much pfited and being of great 
wealth ready to be called to a higher office k Dignity it pleased 
god to vissitt his wife w^h sickness unto Death, to whom this 
sorrowfull husband Robert made earnest suite that shee wold 
make a will tVs to the vallew of 1000 m^ks to give away to her 
Freinds k Kinred k hee would willingly performe it, & at his 
importunate request shee gave away to her freinds k others whom 
shee loved, & so most godly and devoutly departed this life upon 
whose Funerall hee spared no cost. After the death of this wife 
hee remained a widdow^ all the dayes of his life, hee dwelled in 
Gratious street over against the Conduitt, beloved of all his Neighb" 
hee kept great hospitallity ; hee p^pared yearly for his owne house 
keeping 4 hundred pounds w^'h hee liberally bestowed upon his 
Kinred Freinds, k Neighb" : and very bountifuU to the poore 
hee was very Devout k godly k used much the Company of a 
learned preacher Mr. Wager parson of Gratious Church hee was 
one of Xtes hospitall in Southwarke for the maimed sore diseased 
k Lame persons, hee p^'pared for the Frensie, Lunatick k mad 
people in Bedlam (for the better recovering of there senses) every 
thursday throughout the yeare two great Potts of wholsome 
pottage k Broth w^h Leggs k Rack of Mutton k other good 
meates w<^h great Potts were Carryed w*h 4 Porters from his 
house to Bedlam all being Done at his pper cost & charges. Hee 
had by his wife 2 Children a son k a Daughf, who were vertuously 
brought up in Learning nurture k good maners ; the Daughter 
was schooled w*^ M" Raymond, And when shee came to lawfull 
yeares for Marriage was matched w*h Alderman Brooke dwelling 
at the end of Bucklesberry who after was sherriffe k Maior of 
London ; his son Robert bearing the name and simame of his 
Father, after hee came to mans estate, did practize for recreacon 
MiUitary Discipline, wherein hee came a perfect quick k expert 
souldier in warlike affairs ready if such need did require, to bestow 
himselfe life and lim for his prince k Countrey. Hee was noted 
to be a Skilfull k expert Leader before o^ late Queene Elizabeth 
of Famous memory, in the parke at GreenW'h among 4000** 
souldiers Cittizens k for his knowledge had great comendacons. 
Robert Offley the Father a man of exquisite knowledge k judgm* 
knew that youth should be trayned up to those studdyes and 
Facultyes whereunto they be most aptest by nature, and that in 
rash adolescency, youth be more prone to pleasure k voluptuousness 
then to godliness k vertuous exercises, therefore hee did not mislike 
of his sons practize but comended k mainteyned it, for the Captaine 
k govern' of mans life is the mind, w^h when it taketh the way 
to glory by vertue is mighty k skilfull, k hee hath no need of 
fortunes helpe, w«h canott give nor take away honesty, industry 
nor vertuous Qualityes to nor from any : When Enseas arrived 
into Italy hee sent to Laviniu (where Rome is now) a hundred 
Embassad" to King Latinus Court And before the Citty of 


Laviniu, the youth there were exercising in Martiall affaires, some 
on horse back some in Charriotts & breaking the wild horaes in 
the Dust, some in Drawing strong bowes and shooting, some in 
wrestling and challenging one another, in runing <fe in the noble 
science of Defence, & theise comendable exercises were forcible 
employm^ for the defence of King and Countrey, for the stronge 
maintenance of bodily strength *fc courage, & for helpe ag* diseases 
«fe infirmityes ; whereas the youth of o' Dayes are given to wantonesse, 
to Drunkeness & quaffing S: to great excess delighting to make 
there Companies Drunke & compellinge & threatning them to Drinke 
much more then will suffice nature <fe they have found out a cloake 
for there Drunkeness to cover there excessive sinne, namely to 
drinke the health of some noble or worshipfull person or Deare 
Freind as though the health of them were held by there imoderate 
Drinking; The Lord amend this execrable practise for tis to the 
great Displeasure of almighty god in the abusing of his good 
creatures, the impoverishing of the Comonaltye, the increase of 
horrible diseases, the hindrance of health tk the shortning of life. 
This Robert the Father did not so much mistrust his sone but to 
follow the steps of his Father & Auncestors in vertuous exercise, 
& if that should fortune that if either Forreigne or Civill warrs 
(from the w«h the Lord deliver us) should Come this Robert by 
his practise & knowledge might be able to goveme & I^ead an 
army to fight for his King & Countreye. This Robert the younger 
by the consent of his Father and Freinds tooke to wife to his 
owne good liking the Daughter of Alderma Osburne somtyme

K^ by Queene Mary, although of a contrary religion when hee 
was sherriff of London w«h Dignity of Knighthood was seldome 
offered to any Alderman before hee was Lord Maio^ but the 
cause was this Chester being a marchant of great accompt in the 
Citty of Anwerpe, whereby hee Furnished Phillip Eing of Spaine 
w^h great trasure & sums of money upon his arrivall in England. 
This Richard Offley had by his wife many children w«h were

This Willia Offley had the French & Dutch tounges pfectly & 
no knowledge in the Lattine, yet had hee a sentence in his plor 
where hee used to Dine & supp, in the panes of his glasse Window 
written, w^'h hee would ofte repeate Nil Certius morte Nil incertius 
hora mortis ; w«h is nothing is more Certaine y" Deatli, Nothing 
more uncertaine then the hower of Death w<^h was a good signe 
of the motid of the holy spiritt of god to remember his mortallity, 
& the uncertainty of his end, & this uncertainty was verefyed in 
him, for being very merry & pleasant in Company, being stricken 
w^h a dead palsie hee fell downe, & lost the use of his toung & 
dyed w^hin three days ; his hart was sure Fixed in the Lord his 
Savio', for hee reioyced in godly prayers & exhortacons : His will

father Nicholas Leveson Alderman of London dwelled & there 
dyed, w<^h house this Hugh Offley plucked downe & in that 
place erected a goodly i^ stately Frame wherein hee kept a most 
bountifull house when hee was sherri£fe of London, and a little 
before that tyme as his owne charges hee sett forth a costly 
show of Prince Arthur w*h his K^ of the Round Table. Hee 
made choice of 300 Archers goodly & personable men all very well 
appointed in bi sattin Dubletts & h\ velvett hose, every one having 
a bowe of yew & a dossen of waxed Arrowes, & hee appointed 
certaine stages & Forts .& marks to shoot at, & liberall rewards 
to them that wonn the prizes, & plentifuU Banquetts hee p'^pared 
for the Archers ; & they m'ched in goodly & orderly array, three 
& three together, & every three a bow length from another, w^h 
made a comly show from the M'^chant Taylors Hall in London 
to Mile End Greene where by Fortune the late Queene Elizabeth 
(of Famous memory) passd by & caused her Charriott to be 
stayed to behold this goodly show of Archers, speaking to her 
nobility that then attended her noble person, that in her life 
shee never saw a more stately Company of Archers who 
approaching neare her maiesty did there Duty upon there Knees, 
pi-apng god long to jasper & preserve her maiesty, & shee most 
gratiously bowed her body & gave them most harty thankes, 
saying that shee wold love mainteyne and advance her Cittizens 
of the Citty of London & prayed to god to bless all her good 
subiects therein. This Hugh Offley was in great Favour w*h 
many of the Nobillity of France, so that when the Nobillity 
had obteined license to see her Ma*** & her Courte some of them 
came to this Hugh Offley s house, & to his great charges hee most 
Bountifully received them, sparing no cost to give them entertainm^ 
in most ample maiier, & they made him a Companion with them 
to the princes Court: But it may be obiected that these be 
but riotous practises & for pompe & vaine glory, nay it is rather 
manly exercises, wherein in antient tyme god hath blessed this 
Elingdome w*h most noble Victoryes, for Archery bringeth 
strength to the armes Si body, wrestleth against diseases &, 
withdraweth mens minds & affections from idle vayne Cogitations 
From Table play & Cards & Dice, & other idle pastims Kyotting 
& Drunkeness, therefore the man is to be comended highly that 
mainteyneth Archery. And now for his good deeds hee was 
beneficiall to all the hospitalls, to the prisoners about London, to 
the poore in Hackney, where he had alsoe a faire mansion 
house w% great Orchyards tk gardens adioyning thereunto. To 
the Maior & Aldermen of Chester hee gave a goodly standing 
Cup of Sylver w*h Cover Double guilt of the vallew of Fifty 


pounds to drinke wyne in theire pendisse. Hee gave two or 
three houses that hee purchased of his Brother John Offley, 
being of sixe pound of the ould Rent, to this use, that every 
moneth in the yeare the blessed Comunion should be celibrated 
& a sermon should be preached & xii poore widdowes should 
receive w*h the minister, & to every widdow should be dealt a 
peece of money, so that the Rents of those Houses should be 
devided to the poore widdowes & to the minister & to be p**

Jany 6, 1677" [1676/7]. "Ever Honored S', It has pleased God to 
bring me soe within these three last months by a consumptive cough 
that it is not likely in the opinion of many that I can live long 
in this world. Doe not, I pray, S', believe that my writing this 
is any cause or effect of melancholy, which, I thanke God, I never 
was freer from than I am at present but whatever may happen 
it is convenient to settle one's temporall as well as Spiritual! affaires. 
S', I shall have in my Lord Conway's hands, due to mee, Feb. 14, 
fiftie five pounds, which (deducting three pounds which I gave to 
the Poor of my Lord's parish) I leave and bequeath to you. The 
money I will desire my Lord to pay in to my brother, Henry Maunsell, 
for I suppose that a more convenient way then to send a man 
a purpose to Ragley. I have some few Bookes there alsoe, which, 
not being worth the fetching away, I intend to distribute in the 
family and give some to my Lord's librarie. Whatever is due to 
mee from the College and my Bookes and Bedding there be pleased % 
to fetch away or make money of it. Seaven pounds I payd for 
the income of my chamber and since have layd out some more 
for its better furniture. What I layd out myself, I abate to the 
successor ; the seaven pounds is due and I pray, S', draw it yourself e. 
The papers of this income are at Ragley, I will get them sent 
to London and soe to Cambridge. Five pounds I left in my brother 
Blundell's hands, which I alsoe give to you. But out of these summes 
of money which you have or shall receave I beseech you to pay 
to the Poore of Thorpe five pounds, which I give to them ; the 
manner and proportions of giving to each according to their necessities 
you best know, but I pray, S^ let this debt be payd with great 
care. Farther, S', I desire you to give to all my relations, yourselfe, 
my mother, all my brothers and sisters gold rings ten shillings apeece 
which will amount to seaven pounds, ^^ and the five pounds that lye 

'* This, apparently, would be as under: — 

To Father and Mother, lOs. each ... 

To brother Robert Maunsell and wife, 10s. each 

To brothers Thomas Maunsell and Henry Maunsell, 

lOs. each ... 

To sisters, Wheelowes, Courtman, Hill and Blundell 

and to their respective husbands, lOs. each 










in my brother Blundell's hands will conveniently defray part of that 
charge. I left in my brother Henry MaunselFs hands thirtie one 
pounds, which, deducting the charges hee has been at since on my 
accompt, will not amount to above twentie five pounds. This money 
I give and bequeath to him. This is my present will and testament 
in case it shall please God to take mee out of the world shortly. My 
humble dutie presented to yourselfe and my Mother and service 
to all my brothers and sisters, I am your most dutifull and obedient

The defendants claimed by a grant of William Ilketsale, and they 
stated he was son of Robert, brother of Robert, father of Thomas, 
father {sic) of Idonia, the mother of Margaret Seyve. It will be 
seen that the two pedigrees named in the pleadings do not accord.

A History of the House of Perot from the Earliest Times 
DOWN TO THE PRESENT Cbntury. By Gerald Brenan. Edited 
by W. A. Lindsay, Esq., K.C., M.A. (Windsor Herald). 
London (Freeman tie & Co.), mcmii. 

It is to be feared that Englishmen, as a rule, are far less interested 
in the history of the great feudal families of their native land 
than are their neighbours north of the Tweed. In Scotland, 
Douglas has always been a name to conjure with ; in England, 
Percy, Nevill and Howard arouse far less enthusiasm. Of all the 
great families which this country has produced, none has a more 
fascinating story than that of Percy, yet its romantic history is 
comparatively little known to the majority of Englishmen. The 
late Mr. de Fonblanque's elaborate work was printed for private 
circulation only and has always been difficult to obtain, so that a 
popular history of the Percys was much needed. We, therefore, 
all the more regret that though the first issue of this useful 
series was marked by an adequate knowledge of history, by much 
independent research, and by good judgment, we cannot say as 
much -for the two volumes before us. It is true that they differ 
in merit as in bulk ; the first and far less weighty volume being 
marked by evident haste and numberless inaccuracies, while the 
second is a readable and in the main reliable record of the later 
history of this great historic house. The explanation and apology 
in the preface, no doubt, accounts in a great measure for the 

KoncKs OF BOOKa 139 

iii£erioritT ol the e«riier portion of the work, but it cannot be 
ignored that the writer shows himself hur more at hon>e in 
Elizabethan, Stuart and Hanoverian times than in the Plaixta^net 
period. Mr. Brman poss^esses one essential qualiAcati\H\ (\>r the 
compilation of a family history intended f>r the general reaiier — 
he has the pen of a ready writer — indeed, he is occasionallv open, 
as we shall presently show, to the charse of addinff interest 
to his pages by picturesque descriptions which ha\^ no ^>undation 
in actual ^t. He writes, moreo>*er, with a storong religious bias 
throughout, which is objectionable in a work of this oharaoteti 
and which we hope will be avoided in future histories of tJiit 
series. He has created for himself a number of historical buglK^um 
— Henry VIU, Wolsey, Queen Elizabeth, Burghlev and his son 
Robert Cecil, Walsingham and Hatton. None oi these can do 
anything good ; evil deeds and evil motives are attributed to Uiemi 
which, though perhaps sometimes true enough, are for tlio most 
part far more likely to be false. 

On taking up the first volume we are struck by the following 
passage : — " It is probable that < Great Alan * fought under the 
latter sovereign [Henry I] in Normandy and France ; at any rate 
the ancient arms of Percy, — *ctzure five fusils in fesse, or -—lost 
none of their prestige while he bore them upon his shield." Tf 
Mr. Brenan has the slightest proof that Alan de Percy bore 
these arms, it would go far to settle the well known controversy 
as to the date of the introduction of hereditary heraldic insignia, 
but can he adduce a spark of evidence to prove thisi 

The next point that claims our attention is that the question 
long mooted among genealogists, as to the doubtful legitinia(;y of 
Joscelyn of Louvaine, the ancestor in the male line of the historic 
Percys, is here entirely ignored. An instance of what wo are 
compelled to call unjustifiable word painting occurs in the glowing 
passage descriptive of the battle of Shrewsbury, where Hotspur is 
said to have been found " with his face to the early Ntars and 
his forehead pierced by the arrow of doom." Mr. Brenan 
writes : — " There lay the Douglas, his great axe clutcherl In 
the grip of death." Now if this means anything at all, it must 
be intended to convey the impression that Douglas was found 
slain. History tells us, as does Sir Herbert Maxwell in the 
first issue of this series, that Douglas was taken prisoner in the 
fight, courteously treated by Henry IV, lived for twenty years 
longer and fell at length at Yemeuil. Again, in the account of 
the battle of Bramham Moor, we find the following :—<< But a 
lance-thrust pierced Bardolf s throat, and he was slain* Northumlier- 
land, bleeding from many wounds, fought valorously on, until 
life forsook him, and he fell beside the corpse of his telUfW- 
outlaw." Bardolf, according to the most reliable authorities, died 
of his wounds a few hours after the battle, while the Karl fell 
on the field When we come to the second volume we stamJ 
on firmer grotmd« The Rising of the North is well and accurately 
described, and were it not for the irritating Ume id prejiidi/;e 
which unfortunately pervades this book, the author wtmui enlist 


the genuine sympathy of every reader for the tragic story of 
the seventh Earl of Northumberland and his brave and noble 
wife. As to the mysterious death of the eighth Earl in the 
Tower, we cannot think that he was murdered by the contrivance 
of Sir Christopher Hatton. It is difficult to see how his death 
could benefit either Hatton or his royal mistress, and the fact 
that the latter at once permitted his son and successor to take 
possession of his estates, showing him marked favour, should acquit 
her of the insinuation that she had cast covetous eyes on 
Northumberland's lands. By far the most satisfactory portion of 
this work is that which deals with the career of " the Wizard 
Earl," and his long and apparently unjust incarceration in the 
Tower for supposed complicity in the Gunpowder Plot. We seem 
to see the man before us and realise his unhappy troubles and 
his wayward though never ignoble character as we have not 
before done. But even here Mr. Brenan repeats the absurd 
slander that Northumberland's wife was at the time of their 
marriage **nor maid, nor loifey nor yet widotue," and tells us 
that " her first husband, Sir Thomas Perrott, was still living, 
and no record exists to show that this union had ever been set 
aside." As Elizabeth was matchmaker on the occasion, and as 
scandal is nowadays busy with the name of the virgin Queen, it 
may be as well to clear her memory from the imputation of having 
encouraged bigamy among her courtiers. Sir Thomas Perrott died 
between the 13th and 15th Feb. 1593-4,^ while the marriage of his 
widow to the Earl was probably not celebrated until 1595, for 
the latter in his " Instructions " to his son says — " In my Choise 
of a Wyfe it was long ere I made it ; I had told thirty-one 
years ere I tooke one." He was bom in April 1564. 

A plaintive note rings through the otherwise interesting chapter 
which deals with the claims of James Percy ** the trunkmaker," 
and Francis Percy of Cambridge, to the Earldom of Northumber- 
land at the death of the eleventh Earl in 1670. The writer seems 
to think that these men were unfairly treated, but for this suspicion 
we see no justification. The rather wild theory that the claimants 
may have been descended from a mysteriously concealed elder brother 
of Alan Percy of Beverley, so far from being supported by the 
two inquisitions taken upon the death of Alan's father in 1590, is 
actually refuted by them. To judge by his remarks (vol. ii, p. 370) 
Mr. Brenan has either never seen the inquisition which he quotes, 
or has misread it. 

Among many inaccuracies which we have observed in reading these 
pages are the following : — The celebrated soldier Sir John Swinton 
is called Sir David ; Elizabeth Barton, " the maid of Kent," in 
both text and index appears as Burton, while Sir Harris Nicolas 
is always referred to as Nichoh. A more serious error occurs 
on p. 105 of the first volume, where the wife of the third Earl 

> See his Will, dated 12, with codicil 18 Feb. 1593-4, proved by Edward 
Barker, proctor of the Lady Dorothie Perrott, the relict and oxecatrix, 15 Feb. 
following (P.C.C, 14 Dixy). This will g^ves no indication of any quarrel 
between husband and wife. 


is styled Baroness Poynings, Fitz Fayn and Brycm. It is needless 
to do more than refer to the Complete Peerage under the two 
last of these titles. We have nothing but praise for the illustra- 
tions which adorn these volumes, and Mr. Herbert Railton's sketches 
are as attractive as those supplied by him for the Douglas history. 
The chart pedigrees, though containing many misprints, are useful, 
but we cannot approve the inclusion of the Smithson pedigree 
from Plantagenet Harrison's History of Yorkshire, without any 
attempt to verify step by step the statements there made. 

The Giffards. By Major-General the Hon. George Wrottesley. 
(Reprinted from the Proceedings of the William Salt Society.) 1902. 

The writer of this book has long been known as a diligent 
student of the public records, and a work from his pen is therefore 
always regarded as a rare genealogical treat by his fellow antiquaries. 
His history of the Giii^rds is the result of patient and untiring 
study of original documents, chiefly, but by no means entirely, 
ancient lawsuits ; indeed, if proof were needed of the inestimable 
value of these records, it would be sufEcient to point to this volume 
as an example. The author's chief purpose was to write the 
history of the ancient Staffordshire house of Giffard of Chillington, 
but he has in addition investigated with much care the pedigrees 
of many other families of the same surname. The theory that 
all, or nearly all, of these widely scattered families have a common 
' origin is at first sight somewhat startling, but as far as the 
three great baronial houses of the name, the Earls of Buckingham, 
the Barons of Brimsfield and the Barons of Fon thill, are concerned, 
very satisfactory evidence is produced that this is the case. It 
also appears probable that the Giffards of Chillington are an 
offshoot of the last named stock. That the Devonshire Giffards 
are likewise sprung from the Giffards of Fonthill is not by 
any means as certain, but much that is new has been brought 
to light concerning their early genealogy. The exact relation- 
ship of the Chillington family to the Barons of Fonthill cannot 
as yet be determined, though the connection between them is 
indicated, as well as by other evidence, by the fact that as 
late as 1272 John Giffard of Chillington, in a suit brought against 
him by his overlord, the Bishop of Coventry and Lichfield, 
called to warranty the then representative of the Giffards of 
Fonthill, John Fitz John, claiming to hold under him. To quote 
General Wrottesley^s words, the litigation which took place on 
this claim illustrates " the frequent introduction of new mesne 
tenures between the occupier and his lord which is often a 
stumbling-block to the antiquary.'' Notwithstanding their ancient 
birth, and the considerable position which they held in their 
own county, the Staffordshire Giffards did not cut a great figure 
in the world until the time of Henry VIII, when Sir John 
Giffard by distinguished services to that monarch and by a wealthy 
matrimonial alliance, raised his family to the zenith of its dignity 
and influence. In Elizabeth's reign the GiffEirds of Chillington 
were ardent Romanists and endured many hardships for their 


religion. General Wrottesley relates their sufferings in a spirit 
of impartiality, which is as much to be admired as it is unusual 
with those who have to treat of this controversial period of English 
history, and he has also been able to correct some errors into 
which Lingard and Froude have fallen. Like many of their co- 
religionists the Giffards were on the royalist side during the Civil 
War, and it was to George Giffard, a younger son of this family, 
that Charles II chiefly owed his preservation after the battle of 
Worcester. No previous writer has discovered the identity of the 
Mistress Giffard who was the King's hostess at Whiteladies on this 
occasion, and it is satisfactory to And that her true position on 
the pedigree is here made clear. The ancient charters printed in 
the Appendix to this work are sufficient of themselves to render 
it valuable to antiquaries, and in conclusion we can only express 
our regret that it should have been left to a local society to 
publish so interesting a book. 

The Parish Registers of Aldbnham, Hbrtfordshirr, 1559 — 1659. 
Transcribed by Kenneth F. Gibbs, Vicar of Aldenham and 
Hon. Canon of St. Albans, and edited and indexed by 
William Brigg, HA. 1902. 

Genealogists should give* a cordial welcome to this carefully 
transcribed and excellently printed Parish Register. Aldenham 
has always been an important parish, containing many gentle 
families, and owing to its proximity to the Metropolis the entries 
in the register relating to Londoners are numerous. Canon Gibbs, 
who is responsible for the transcript and from whom alone the 
printed register can be obtained, has added a very interesting 
Appendix giving an historical account of Aldenham Place and its 
various proprietors, and of the ancient Grammar School founded in 
the reign of Queen Elizabeth, together with a list of the clergy 
connected with the parish. During the period with which this 
portion of the register deals the manor passed, by purchase, from 
the family of Stepney, or Stepneth, to that of Cary, and was sold 
in 1642 by Lucius Cary, Viscount Falkland, the celebrated cavalier 
commander, to Sir Job Harby, afterwards created a Baronet by 
Charles II. Entries are to be found in the register relating to 
all these families, as well as to those of Briscoe, Cade, Coghill, 
Coningsby, and Puckering. The seventh Earl of Rutland, then 
Sir George Manners, was married here in 1605-6, and a son of 
Lord Mohun was buried in 1653. A curious breach of promise 
of marriage entry is to be found on p. 99, and in 1636 occur 
the names of several persons who died of the pestilence. The 
index provided by Mr. Brigg is all that can be desired, and will 
be very useful. The i-egister is rendered more attractive by 
several illustrations, including portraits of Henry and Lucius, first 
and second Viscounts Falkland, and views of Aldenham Place 
and the Grammar School. Canon Gibbs announces his intention 
of carrying the transcript to the year 1813, and we venture to 
suggest that when this is done, the monumental inscriptions in 
church and churchyard should he added. 


The Earliest Peerage Annual : An Exact List of the Lords 
Spiritual and Temporal. London (Elliot Stock). 

This dainty little volume is a facsimile reproduction by photo- 
graphy of what is supposed to be the first annual publication 
dealing with the personnel of both Houses of Parliament, which 
was issued in 1734, Its chief interest consists in the London 
addresses of the Lords and Commons, which are given, thus 
showing the localities in which the fashionable world lived in the 
early part of the eighteenth century. These addresses should be 
compared with those given in " A Peerage Directory, 1 727," 
published in 77te Genealogist as long ago as 1884 (New Series, 
vol. i, p. 49). Mr. Fox- Da vies in his preface comments upon 
the Earl of Abingdon's town house having been situated in Dirty 
Lane, " wherever that neighbourhood may have been." The 
euphonious locality in question is surely now known as Abingdon 
Street, Westminster. It is curious that though every other rank 
in the Peerage has been enormously increased, there are now 
fewer English Dukedoms than there were in 1734. 

^otts and a^rnxm- 

The Hamiltons op Blanterferme. — I only lately happened to 
observe in The Geiiecdoyist of October, 1899, an article by 
Mr. Joseph IJain, F.S.A. Scot., on "The Hamilton family and its 
Cadets," in which he impugns the succession of the Hamiltons of 
Blanterferme, or Blantyrefarm, in the parish of Blantyre, Lanark- 
shire, endeavouring to introduce into that succession the Rev. 
William Hamilton, Uoman Catholic Rector of Cambuslang, and his 
natural sons James and Robert, because these persons in 1557 
obtained two charters of certain lands in Blantyre barony which 
he finds recorded as Nos. 352 and 371 in the recently published 
Protocol Books of the Town Clerks of Glasgow. As the Hamiltons 
of Blanterferme died out in the male line in the year 1773, and 
cannot therefore now defend their own succession, I hope I 
may be allowed to point out that the chartera to which Mr. 
Bain refers do not relate to the lands of Blanterferme at all, 
but to other lands of much less value in the parish of Blantyre, 
which are (juite distinct. Mr. Bain does not give the description 
of the lands of which the Rev. William Hamilton in 1557 obtained 
charters in the actual words of the protocols, and, as the difference 
is important, I give them here. They are, " the west half of the 
granters dominical lands commonly called the Mains of Blanter 
with half of the tower, of the fortalice, with yards, orchards, and 
other pertinents extending to a twenty shilling land of old extent; 


with half of the granter's mill of Blanter, mill lands, etc., lying 
in the barony of Blanter and shire of Lanark," the granter being 
John Dunbar, Baron of Blanter. 

Dominical lands in Scotland, according to the late eminent 
authority, John Riddell, advocate, were lands allotted to the 
support of the Baron and his retainers. 

Mrs. George Scott, of Blantyreferme House, who is now the 
representative of the Hamiltons of Blanterferme, or Blantyrefarm, 
writes to me that the lands of Blanterferme are designated in 
the title deeds as '*all and whole the ten poufid lands of old 
extent of Blanterferme, or Blantyrefarm, with biggins, yards, tofts 
and crofts, outfields, infields, etc. ; " that no part of Blanterferme 
is called the Mains; and that the only lands known as the 
Mains are in a part of the parish called Uie Kirkton of Blantyre 
about three miles distant from Blanterferme, and connected with 
other lands called Priestfield. 

Moreover, I find in the Qreat Seal Charter of the Barony of 
Blantyre to the first Lord Blantyre, dated 18 Jan. 1599, No. 833 
as published, which also forms P^tocol No. 3425 in the Protocols 
of the Town Clerks of Glasgow, vol. xi, " the dominical lands 
commonly called the Mains of Blantyre with manor place, etc.," are 
mentioned as separate and distinct lands from those of Blanterferme 
also named amongst others in the barony, and in No. 198 of the 
Inquisitions for Lanarkshire the lands are again mentioned exactly 
in the same way as distinct and separate within the barony in 
the retour of Walter, third Lord Blantyre as heir to his father 
William, the second Lord Blantyre, on 11 May 1639. 

The evidence of the two charters adduced by Mr. Bain shows 
that the Rev. William Hamilton, Roman Catholic Hector of 
Cambuslang, and his natural sons James and Robert, held by 
charter in 1557 one half of the dominical lands commonly called 
the Mains of Blantyre, but in no way shows that they were 
ever connected with the Hamiltons or lands of Blanterferme.

Hall Family of Cambridge, Mass.— My ancestress, Mary Hall, 
came from England about 1630 with her husband, whom tradition 
calls " Mr. Nathaniel," her son John, and possibly other children. 
The early Church records of Cambridge, Mass., where they were 
located were destroyed by fire, so her husband's Christian name is 
not certain. The family is believed to have come from Coventry or 
St. Edmundsbuiy. The arms handed down are : — Argent, on a 
chevron between three columbines Azure stalked and leaved Vert, a 
mullet of six points Or. Chest-^A talhofs head erased proper. 
According to liurke, these arms belong to the Hall family of 
Salisbury, Wiltshire. The N.Y. Library contains only a partial 
list of those who sailed from London between 1600 and 1700. I 
shall be greatly obliged for any information which may enable 
me to trace the earlier origin of this family.

The Heraldic Visitations of Wales by Lewys Dwnn are so little 
known to any but students of Welsh genealogy that a few words 
concerning that antiquary may not be out of place before I pass 
on to consider his works. Lewys Dwnn, or rather Lewys ap Rhys 
ap Owain, for Dwnn was the name of his mother's family, tells 
us that he was a diligent student at the feet of William Uyn 
and of Hywel ap Sir Matthew and of other earlier and well 
known Welsh heralds. Of his date of birth or death nothing 
is known, but his labours extend over the last quarter of the 
sixteenth century, and part of the reign of James I. In the 
first half of the nineteenth century the Society for the Publication 
of Ancient Welsh Manuscripts determined that Dwnn*8 Visitations 
should be, if possible, discovered and published, and the task was 
entrusted to several competent antiquarians, under the editorship 
of Sir Samuel Rush Meyrick, LL.D., F.8.A., the well known 
author of a " History of Cardiganshire," with the result that in 
1846 two folio volumes were published. Of these, the first contains 
the counties of Carmarthen, Pembroke and Cardigan in South 
Wales, and those of Radnor, Flint and Denbigh in North Wales. 
The second volume begins with a small number of miscellaneous 
districts, some in North and some in South Wales, extending to 
only sixty-four pages in the printed folio ; the remaining and 
chief portion being occupied with the counties of Anglesea, 
Caernarvon and Merioneth in the Northern part of the Piinci- 
pality. The first difficulty that Meyrick had to encounter was 
the discovery of the original manuscripts. This proved no easy 
matter. We can imagine the search made and the correspondence 
that no doubt took place between Meyrick, Mr. Morris, of Shrews- 
bury, the eminent Welsh genealogist. Lord Cawdor, Sir Thomas 
Phillipps, Mr. Lloyd Mostyn, M.P., and others, with the somewhat 
meagre result that of all Dwnn's manuscripts the only autographs 
that came into Sir Samuel Mey rick's hands were those relating 
to the counties of Carmarthen, Pembroke and Cardigan. Meyrick 
tells us that this volume was in the possession of Mrs. Madocks, 
of Glan-y-wern, in Denbighshire, who allowed him to copy it. The 
fact that these three counties are taken from the originals at 
first hand and are not mere copies of transcripts, lends a peculiar 
value and interest to the first two hundred and forty-eight pages 
of Meyrick's volume i. The remaining eighty-four pages of this 
volume contain copies of transcripts, said to be from original 
Visitations of Radnor and Montgomery, by Dwnn. With regard 
to volume ii, the first sixty-four pages are, as I have ali*eady said, 
occupied by miscellaneous descents, which appear to have been written 
by one Hopkin ap Einion, of Brecon, and are a compilation made 
about 1604, probably from various sources, including, it may be, 
Dwnn himself, who was then living. The remaining three hundred 
pages are from a transcript made in 1685 by Lewis Owen, of 



Peniarth, from the original then in the possession of Mr. Thomas 
Mostyn, of Gloddaith. The accuracy of this transcript is, however, 
supported by two persons, William Hughes and John Davies, 
who attest each page with the remark, "This page agrees with ye 
originall being compar*^ by us.'' This copy, after many wanderings 
from its original home, came into the possession of Mr. Edward 
Evans, of Eyton Hall, in Herefordshire. Sir Samuel Meyrick, we 
see, in spite of all his enquiries and the help of Welsh antiquaries, 
had to put up with a series of transcripts in forming his text 
for the North Wales Visitation. In fact, apart from the three 
counties of South Wales, out of the i*emaining nine counties of 
the Principality, we have only Anglesey, Caernarvon and Merioneth, 
that can boast an even passable text and that merely an attested 
transcript. In his introduction, p. xxix. Sir Samuel Meyrick remarks 
as follows : — " During its (his work) being printed, the original 
by Lewis Dwnn, with the subscribed signatures in the handwriting 
of the parties, has been, through the untiring perseverance of my 
friend Mr. Wynne, discovered at Hengwrt, but I must mention 
that no energies have been wanting to ascertain what has become 
of all Lewys Dwnn's other manuscripts." It is much to be regretted 
that unique records such as these should be so constantly the 
subject of enquiry into their location and ownership. Perhaps some 
system of central registration or notification might be consented 
to by their fortunate possessors, who do not desire to part with 
their treasures into the safe keeping of an official body such as 
the Trustees of the British Museum or the College of Arms. As 
it is, such MSS. are frequently dispersed when change of ownership 
comes about by death or other means, and in consequence a sort 
of Inquisition or Domesday Survey has to be taken about 
twice in a century to ascertain if they are still extant and where 
they abide. It is more than fifty years since we last heard 
from Sir Samuel Meyrick of his quest, and I recently undertook 
another to ascertain where Dwnn's autograph Visitations now are. 
Meyrick found the South Wales Collection at Mrs. Madocks', at 
Glan-y-wem, but it is not there nou). He tells us that before 
his book issued from the press that the North Wales Visitation 
was discovered at Hengwrt, hut it is not there now. Where then 
are they? I can fortunately answer this question. The first I 
have discovered in a safe place, whence it is unlikely ever to wander 
again. It is among the Egerton MSS. in the British Museum 
and is described in the Catalogue as follows : —

"Pedigrees of Welsh families in the Counties of Carmarthen, 
Pembroke and Cardigan, by Lewis Dwnn, Deputy Herald-at-Arms 
1586—1613, Welsh and English, Autograph. The title in Welsh, 
which is written on f. 8, states that the volume is the book of 
Lewis Dwnn, the poet of Montgomeryshire, of Bettws in Cydhewain, 
which he collected as Deputy Hei-ald-at-Arms over tlie three 
Principalities of Wales and the Marches of Wales, under a patent 
sealed by Clarenceux and Norroy, Kings of Arms. In the first 


part of the MS. are interspersed some biblical, historical and 
mythical genealogies. The pedigrees of the families are not 
arranged in any order, but many of them are attested with the 
signatures of the heads of the several families. At the end is 
an index of names made in 1748. The pedigrees were edited, 
together with those in the following volume, by Sir Samuel Rush 
Meyrick, for the Welsh MSS. Society in 1846, both volumes being 
then in the possession of Mrs. Madocks, of Glan-y-wem, co. Denbigh.

The pedigrees are partly in tabular and partly in (Welsh) 
narrative foi-ra, and most are signed by the head of the family, 
whose descent is recorded, together with the date and a note of 
the sum paid to Dwnn for his labours, usually five or ten shillings. 
The language is an extraordinary compound of Welsh and English, 
for instance, " Dustus o'er pies et cwrwm," is Dwnn's rendering 
of " Justice of the Peace and of the Quorum " ! His writing too, 
is very bad, indeed he apologises for it in his introduction ; 
addressing his readers he says, ** But I request of you wise and 
learned readers that you will not form your judgment of me 
by the appearance of ray writing, for no one can go beyond 
his abilities." Nevertheless, in spite of tliese drawbacks, the 
work is one of great general accuracy, and is especially valuable 
by reason of the signatures of those from whom the herald 
obtained his information at first hand. Such evidence would in 
our own times be regarded as of legal validity for at least the 


third generation above that of the attester. Dwnn tells us that 
he had an official position as Deputy Herald under patent. I 
have made enquiry at the College of Arms and find that nothing 
is known there of the circumstances of his appointment or of 
any patent. Yet Meyrick states in his Introduction (p. xxiii) 
that this deputation was discovered at his instigation, after much 
search, by T. W. King, Rouge Dragon, among some miscellaneous 
papei*s, and that it is endorsed in a hand resembling Dugdale's, 
"Taken out of Wales Visitation Booke, nu 136." The reference 
given by Meyrick is "H 16, f. 202." It would be very interesting 
to know where this MS. is. Meyrick, however, had a full copy 
of the Patent which he gives in extenso on p. xxiii. There is 
one praiseworthy direction given to Dwnn by Clarenceux (Cooke) 
and Norroy (by his deputy Glover), and that is to carefully 
take down dates and full particulars of the families within the 
Principality and the Marches, " Omittinge all highe lynes dedvced 
from farre aboue all memorie, which for great part are found to 
be coniecturall," etc. This direction Dwnn will be found to have 
followed. His patent is dated 3rd February 1585. How it came 
about that none of Dwnn's Visitations are to be found in their 
proper home the College of Arms, and why no record of his 
appointment can be discovered, although it clearly was in existence 
within the last fifty years, are enigmas beyond my ability to 
solve. His work in South Wales is extremely full, accurate and 
duly attested, and the original MS. is easily accessible. For its 
own period it is unrivalled and superior both to Vincent and 
Prothero in detail in many cases. Turning from South to North 
Wales in my search for Dwnn's autograph of that part of the 
Principality, I fully expected from Meyrick's statement that Hengwrt 
would repay enquiry, but I found that no M8S. are now there. 
Peniarth I thought unlikely, as Meyrick states that a copy made 
by Lewis Owen, Esq., of Peniarth, from the original at Gloddaith, 
was not then in the possession of his descendant, W. W. E. Wynne, 
Esq., but had wandered to Herefordshire, whence it was lent to 
Meyrick for his work. However, it proved eventually that Peniarth 
was the right locality, and on applying to W. R. M. Wynne, Esq., 
Lord Lieutenant of Merionethshire, he with the utmost courtesy, 
informed me that the original MS. was among his valuable 
collection at Peniarth. Mr. Wynne is of opinion that it never 
formed part of the Hengwrt collection, but that it reached Peniarth 
through some ancestors of his family, " either the Mostyns or 
VVilliamses of Penbedw in Flintshire." As it would appear to 
have been at one time in the possession of Mr. Thomas Mostyn, 
of Gloddaith, Mr. Wynne is doubtless right in his belief. In 1859, 
however, the late Sir Robert Williams Vaughan bequeathed the 
great Hengwrt collection to his " friend and kinsman " W. W. E. 
Wynne, Esq., whose letter prefixed to Harl. MS. 2,299, tells us so. 
It will thus be seen that the whereabouts of the onginal Visitations 
for six counties has at length been ascertained, but there is reason 
to believe that I>3wys Dwnn included the other parts of Wales 
in his inquiries. And it is in the hope that the attention of 


persons interested in Welsh genealogy may be called to this matter 
and further stimulated, that I have written this article. I have 
had the title page of the South Wales MS. photographed (full 
size). Any subscriber to The Genealofjist who wishes a copy can 
obtain one from the photographer by applying to me. It may 
serve as a standard to test the authorship of other MSS. that may 
be, possibly, writings of Lewys Dwnn.

so after y* tyme hee wold never beleive Fryer nor their pfession. 
For this Fryer in the Chappell in one end of the house did 
celibrate the masse k in the other end did coniure the Divell. 
And so this John Offley left his trade of the staple and followed 
his Fathers trade in the Citty of Chester, k was marryed to Alice 
Rogerson, the daught' of Alderma RogersO W™ Offleys Daughter 
in law ; soe that the Father marryed the mother, k the son the 
Daughter, k he pspered in this m^'chandize k adventures, k spent 
his gaines liberally among his Freinds Cittizens k Aldermen of 
Chester, Hee entertained the Lord Ferrers of Chartley at his 
house a whole weeke together, hee builded a ship called the 
Gouldon Lyon, hee was bountifull k liberall in house keeping k 
charitable to the poore. Hee also travelled into Ireland, k pro- 
cured him w^h the Lords of the Countrey Freindship k acquaintance 
by catching of salmons ; sett up a Tent w*h a llagg on the top, 
to the which Tent the Lords of the Count[r]ey came <k had 
entcrtainm^ w'h plenty of wine k shugar k biskett Cakes k hee 
cutt them out Jerkins k stockings of greene Kersie w<^h hee brought 
w4i him thither for the same purpose ; and the Lords gave him 
liberty to fish for salmons, where hee tooke at the Fishing tymes, 
a Thousand Salmons in one tyme of the yeare ; soe was this John 
Offley a evident man and a good victualler for his Countrey, 
untill the tyme that his brother S' Thomas became a purchaser 
of whom hee tooke Counsell k advice k used him as a surveyor. 
And being this [thus] recalled from his dangerous adventures both 
by sea k Land by the Large pmises of his Brother S"* Thomas k 
espetially by the perswasion k Tears of his Loving wife Alice 
Offley hee came k dwelt at the Manor howse of iVIadely brought 
his houshold k family thither w4i great |)vission of Beefe 15arrclled 
up for the sea, k good store of wine k soe hee kept a bountifull 
house among the Tenents k Neighb". And by his good experience 
and wisdome hee caused all the Pooles k Rugged Places to Ix) 
perfect meadowing such was his Care k dilligeuce for his Brother 
k his posterity. Hee was put in trust for the Educacon of one 
M' Burtons Daughters whom hee bestowed in marriage some to 
worshipfuU gentlemen k some to men of good Livings gave them 
there portions k performed the last will k testam^ of his Cozen 
Burton k the trust that was reposed in him. His wife Alice Offley 
Brought him two Children that were borne at I^Iadcly Manor the 


one a son the other a Daughter. The Lord Ferrers of Chartley 
sent Ixis grandchild Walter Deverox to be Godfather to his son 
who bore the name of Walter in his Baptisrae & after this Walter 
Offley dyed in his minority. Mary the youngest was sent to London 
& was marryed to one M*^ Twyne a student & learned in the Law, 
Jane Offley the eldest was brought up in her Aunt M" Kirtons 
House & was marryed from thence to Mr. Gall a publick Notary 
in London. 

Three of Mr. John Offleys Daughters were matched neare unto 

there parents in Staffordshire Elizabeth the eldest to one John 

Austin of the grange a rich Farm' who died without issue & left 

her a good & sufficient anuity w«h s** Elizabeth was after marryed 

to one Mr. Phillip Belleott [Bellot] of Moreton in Cheshire & of 

her body hee had one son named John Belleott, Ann Offley was 

marryed to M' Thomas Unwyn a man of good living of antient 

inheritance in Audely parish & had of her body one sone who is 

a man of wisdomo & Creditt & estimacon among his neighb" & 

in his Countrey ; Ellen Offley the youngest of these three that 

came from Chester was a beautifull & modest maid best beloved 

of her parents welbeloved of her Uncle S' Thomas Offley who 

would ofte tymes comend her for her wisdome good behavior & 

gravity who would many tymes say that shee should be his 

Daughter by adoption, & therefore willed his brother her Father 

that hee should not bestow her in marriage but by his Consent 

for hee wold provide for her & make choice of her husband, yet 

notwithstanding shee made her owne choice unknowne to parents 

or uncle ; which tydings of her marriage to John Weston his 

servant when that came to the eare of his M' S*" Thomas by one 

of his tenents who was by at the marriage, hee was moved in 

great choller against them, &, after being pswadcd by his tenant 

that the knott that was done could not be undone, & that his 

servant was a wise man, was privy to his Counsell & secretts, 

sollicif to all Causes, had good success in them never had the 

Overthrow in any Cause hee tooke in hand, wellbeloved of all 

the worshipfull Freinds well knowne to the Reverend Judges S& 

grave Counsell" beloved of all your Tenents well accepted in 

Court spirituall & temporall w*h the Chancell*^ & Register M' 

Weston, who calleth him & accepteth him for his loving Cozen. 

And further by this his marrying you have bound him & his 

children (if god send them) to be surre pillars to your House & 

Posterity <fe upon these wise speeches S' Thomas being pacified & 

knowing that hee had spoken well & truly hee answered ; I know 

hee is wise & Discreet in all that hee takes in hand, & I will 

be good unto him, but yet will I use him as my servant & it 

shalbe no hindrance to him. For I had rather have A man wanting 

money, then money wanting a man, & that w«h wants of them 

in substance I will supply w«h he certainly had done in more 

ample maner if hee had come downe into the Countrey as hee 

did purpose <k prepare for that Journey if hee had not beene 

otherwise counselled to stay & tarry in London, where hee in 

the latter end of the s^ sumer about the last of July An" 1582 


departed this life k soe by his untymely death did not remember 
his God-Daughter Ann Weston Daughter of his servant John 
Weston k Ellen his wife k others of his servants, whom hee 
had thought to have Further benefited if god had not otherwise 
determine. This John Weston did bring againe to the Lords 
possession such Lands as were Concealed by Freeholders from the 
Lrds of the Mano' Hee had begotten of the body of his wife 
Ellen one Daughter as is afores**, to whom S' Thomas was god- 
father in Baptisme at Madely, k after one sonn whose Grandfather 
John Offley was God-Father at the Font; And now this John 
Offley k Alice his wife having bestowed all there children, some 
to god k some in marriage as you have heard k seeing theire 
children's children, they grew old in body k mind and prei>ared 
themselves to dye unto the world, k to live unto god, k so it 
pleased the Lord first to take to his mercy the loving wife Alice 
Offley, whose death the husband sore lamented k liberally perfornuKl 
her Funerall being his last care k charge. After whose Death 
hee abandoned the pleasures k ioyes of this world k lived w4i 
his son Weston k well>eloved Daughter, some few ycares in the 
service k Feare of god k in meditation of the world to come, 
and being five weeks sick in body but of a sound remembrance, 
disposed of all his tcmporall goods to his Grandchildren, comitte<l 
his soule to the Almighty, k the day before hee dyed hee called 
the Curate, to prepare for the next Day the Celebration of the 
Lords supper, for himselfe his childi-en k Freinds to Communicate 
wMi him. But it pleased god to Call him in a good k acceptable 
tyme for hee lived not unto the next day, but in the night 
before hee called for a Cup of water, <k drunke thereof uttering 
these speeches. O heavenly Father I beseech thee accept of this 
my sacrifice w^'h I offer unto thy divine maiesty in remembrance 
of the death k pa.ssion of thy son Jesus Christ my savio' into 
whose hands I cofnend my spiritt unto whom w^h the Father 
k the holy ghost be rend red all glory bono' praise ^ thanksgiving 
now and ever w^i such divine k godly words hee departed ^ was 
interrd in a monum* of stone w^'h hee had in his life tyme prepared, 
hee appointed by his will a stone of Alablaster to bee sett on 
the top thereof. And thus did this godly man depart out of 
this life in the Faith of Christ; k his Funerall most amply 
performed, k the Ixxiy of him k his loving Wife Alice to rest 
in one Tombe in the Dust untill the lx)rd shall restore them 
gloriously in the gen(Tall resurrection. After the Death of John 
Offley who had the IMilne k Farme at Thomas Hill at a reasonable 
Rate by the last will k testam^ of S*" Thomas his Brother; John 
Weston his son in law k Ellen his wife, contynued there house 
keeping there Almes to the poore in as ample maner as before <fe

liberallity, hee had many secrett enemies who envyed his Former 
Felicity k happie success in all that hee tooke in hand ; And they

Ij^thiqxtt of iht J[amtlw0 of ^ttoconun 
nxib Runnings, of co. Jtncoln, 

In volume v of The Genealogist (First Series), the Rev. W. G. 
Dymock Fletcher, F.S.A., gave an account of the Field family of 
Lacebj, co. Lincoln, and showed their connection with the Newcomens 
through the marriage on the 29th April 1734 of David Field, with 
Mary Newcomen, the only daughter of Rev. Wm. Newcomen, by 
his second wife, Ann Westhorpe. I propose to trace the descendants 
of Edward Newcomen, the only child of the Rev. Wm. Newcomen, 
by his first wife, Mary Townraw. 

It is only right to state that I am enabled to do this through the 
researches of Mr. Fletcher, who may truly be styled the historian 
of the Newcomen family. He, in volume vii of The Genealogist 
(First Series, p. 229), gave extracts from many of the Newcomen 
wiUs. He has also published in pamphlet form '^The Family of 
Newcomen of Saltfleetby," being a repHnt of an article he 
contributed to the reports of the Lincoln and Nottingham Architec- 
tural Society for the year 1897 (vol. xxiv, p. 145). To the article 
in the report, the learned Editor, Prebendary Maddison, F.S.A., 
added (p. 162) some notes on the family, from which I give 
extracts : — 

" The pedigree of the Newcomens 'is given in four Lincolnshire 
Visitations. . . . The number of branches into which the race spread 
is remarkable, and it is still more remarkable to find that nearly 
all dwindled into female heirs. The senior Saltfleetby line apparently 
ends with the daughters of John Newcomen, living in 1634, but 
that line put forth a branch in Charles Newcomen, of London, 
which spread into Ireland, where it was adorned with a peerage 
and baronetcy. Both are now extinct . . . The branch which showed 
most vitality is the one founded by Richard Newcomen, of Nether 
(Low) Toynton . . . The senior line of the Nether Toynton New- 
comens seems to have died out in Tliomas Newcomen, son and heir 
of Samuel in 1592, but the second Saltfleetby line founded by 
Charles Newcomen, who married Joan Thomdike, flourished all 
through the seventeenth century." 

I would refer to the pedigree of the Newcomen family given 
in the Heralds' Visitation of Lincolnshire in 1562-4 (see GpneaJ agist, 
First Series, vol. iv, p. 260) and also to the two pedigrees in the 
1592 Visitation (see Genealogist, First Series, vol. vi, p. 272), and 
point out that Prebendary Maddison doubts the correctness of the 
descent of Richard Newcomen, of Nether Toynton, given in the 
1592 Visitation, and considers Richard Newcomen was more probably 
descended from Wm. Newcomen, of Saltfleetby, the younger son of 
Wm. Newcomen, and that he did not die as recorded in the 1562 
Visitation in that year without issue. 

The Hunnings, through Ann Newcomen, represent the line 
descended from the youngest son of Charles and Joan Newcomen.

I am rather amused to see that Mr. Scott-Gatty, knowing all 
he does of the circumstances under which my criticisms were 
written and rewritten, finds some of tliem lacking in point. A 
few at any rate have gone home. His misquotations are handsomely 
acknowledged, and of them we will say no more. But this time 
he has been somewhat careless in quoting me. Thus I did not 
charge him with misleading his readers, or with interpolating 
glosses and other extraneous matter into his texts ; but pointed 
out that this had been done by the editor and translator on whom 
he unfortunately relied, and that he had himself evidently been 
misled. I never said that Gildas named Constantius and the 
two Constantines : merely that foreign historians would supply 
an outline of their careers. The date 516 I do not think I 
even mentioned. It was tlie Vifa Gildify not I, that made 
Gildas a Scot As for tlie legend of St. Alban, let the galled 
jade wince. While setting up Gildas as the authority — the sole 
authority — for the times in wliicli he lived, I distinctly stated my 
view that, for earlier events, " he is no better authority than 

While upon tlie subject of authorities, may I suggest that Mr. 
Scott-Gatty would find in ]Mommsen's critical and scholarly edition 
of Gildas and Nennius more help in regard to the text tlian 
in the inferior work he cites. W'hen Gildas represents Ambrose 
as on the whole victorious over the Saxons, is it respectful to cite 
a recent school history wliich asserts tliat " he was completely 
routed by them " 1 Indeed the authorities selected for the fifth 
century form a remarkable group. A single page (p. 75) supplies 
the following list ; — 

" Welsh Tradition." Gardiner, St-iident's History of 

Geoflfrey of Monmouth. Eiujlmid. 

Nennius. Malory, Jlorte D'Artur, 

Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. Gildas. 

Henry of Huntingdon. Bede. 

Camden, Britannia, 

Morant's History of Colche»ter must not be left out ; and for 
dates, the margin of the llendre Book. 

One word, in passing, about Zimmer, whose name seems to be 
the proverbial stick to beat a dog with. As it has been flourished 
over me, I must mildly protest I am not frightened. There is 
a type of German scholarship which appeals to the saving sense 
of humour of the mere Briton. Far be it from me to disparage 
the toil or the erudition spent upon the Xeniuus Vindicatus ; only 
I do not see that it helps Mr. Scott-Gatty much, for frankly the net 


result is to leave his author without one shred of authority, except 
of course for such statements as can be traced to Oildas. Heaven 
preserve our disjecta membra from such a vindicator. 

Let us now clear away the wreckage. Half the " tentative 
pedigree" or thereabouts has gone by the board. With King 
Coel, Helen, Constantine the Great, and the rest, we have no 
further concern ; and on these heads I may well be content with 
Mr. Scott-Gatty's admissions. The passage about the sobolea 
Ambrotn% which figured originally as a probable allusion to Arthur 
by Gildas himself, goes too. " It does not affect my case." No 
indeed ; but it did very materially, until Bohn's " free translation " 
was shewn to be a rank blunder. 

The " tentative pedigree," from Maximus to Arthur, remains 
for us to examine; and this Mr. Scott-Gatty complains that I 
treated with scant consideration. Well, I will endeavour vfury 
shortly to make amends. And first l)e it noted that, in order 
to fui*nish Maximus with a son named Constantine, it was necessary 
to identify him with a certain Maxcn ap Llewellyn. That identi- 
fication has now been definitely abandoned ; and with it goes the 
suggested paternity of Constantine, so that we must, in fact, begin 
with Constantino himself. 

Now Mr. Scott-Gatty has introduced three persons of that or a 
similar name. 

(i). The historical Constantine, a Roman ofHcor serving in 
Britain, proclaimed Emperor in 407 by his legionaries after the 
fall of Gratian. He crossed the channel to attack the Vandals in 
Gaul and Spain, and upon his victory a year later was recognised 
by Honorius. He and his son were put to death at Aries in 411 
by disaffected troops. Constans, another son, said to have been 
tonsured before commanding an army, was put to death at Yienne 
by Gerontius about the same time. 

(ii). A traditional Kustennyn ap Maxen ap Llewellyn, said to 
have refused a crown in order to be " duke " of Ewyos Urchonfeld 
(a highly suspicious quarter), and direct ancestor of Voi'tigern. 

(iii). A traditional Kustennyn ap Tydwal, said to liavo been a 
chief from Armorica, who fought successfully against Picts and Scots 
till treacherously slain by one, and to have had a son Emrys 

Such, for what it is worth, seems to be the core of the tradition. 
As usual there are accretions. Certain deeds of the historical Con- 
stantine, for instance, are attributed (or a garbled version of them 
is), to both the others ; his tonsured son to one of them. To cling 
to these accretions, while rejecting the genuine tradition is to drop 
the substance for the shadow, like the dog in the fable. But tliat 
is what Mr. Scott-Gatty has done. In his firat article ho selected 
the father of the second, the career of the first, and the sons of 
the first and third, and by this composite method produced the 
"novelty" (the term is his own) which he again commends to our 

It is true he brings forward another argument for this identification, 
namely the supposed statement of Gildas that Ambrose was the 


son of a Roman Emperor, slain in the continental wars. Assuming 
for the moment that Ambrose was Emrys Wledig ap Custennyn 
Vendigaid, how very cautious Gildas is, where Mr. Scott-Gatty is 
so positive. No " ut novi " here ; but " forte Romanse gentis," 
''parentibus purpura nimirum indutis.'' Gildas thus claims no 
certain knowledge of his parentage ; while the phrase " tantse 
tempestatis collisione occisis " (sandwiched in between those significant 
particles as it is) can only be interpreted by the context. The 
whole passage is too long to quote, but my readers can sec for 
themselves that these words occur towards the end of a chapter, 
that the whole chapter is about the Saxon invasion, so is the 
chapter before, and so is the chapter before that. I quite see that 
this interpretation may conflict with Mr. Scott-Gatty's chronology ; 
but that is his affair. 

Mr. Scott-Gatty's attitude towards the Welsh genealogies of that 
epoch is throughout rather perplexing. Sometimes he quotes them 
with respect : indeed his whole superatructure rests upon them. 
Sometimes again he treats them with contumely. At the few 
points where they impinge upon ascertained fact, they are, as he 
has shewn, damaged by the contact. It would be unkind to suggest 
that he has accepted just so much as will square with his theory, 
and rejected the rest. No doubt in his own mind he has some 
principle of criticism, some touclistone of credibility ; but it has 
not been disclosed, explicitly or otherwise. As to the precise weight 
to be attached to this form of tradition, opinions will widely 
differ. Pedigrees sucli as those of Tydwal and Vortigern one may 
believe or disl)elieve ; there is little or no material for argument 
about them. With Artliur it is a diffei*ent matter. Round his 
name had grown an epic or legend cycle before the date at which our 
earliest Welsli documents had taken the shape in which we know 
them. His pedigree, therefore, must be received with special 
caution ; for so famous a hero was bound to be fitted with the 
most illustrious ancestry available, even as Gildas felt sure that 
Ambrase must be son of a Roman, and an Emperor at that. 
Remember also the case of Hereward. 

At this point evidently I must have failed to make my argument 
clear, or Mr. Scott-Gatty would hardly complain that I paid 
no attention to his .second novelty. To question whether such 
persons as Arthur and Uther ever existed, is surely to deal 
somewhat drastically with their pedigree. As for Arthur, I lean 
towards the view that he is probably founded on fact — though 
admitting that this is highly questionable. Not so with Uther. 
His genesis and origin are clear enough. Someone wrote, in 
the margin of Nennius, " Arthur map uter " : the same or another 
hand added the translation *^ filius horribilis " — meaning, I suppose, 
"child of wrath" or "child of terror." Later writers (ignoring 
the translation) made Uther a proper name, and invented 
the title Pendragon to adorn it. It is a.s though a historian, 
finding Eling Charles stigmatised as a son of Belial, were to discuss 
gravely whether Belial was a title of King James, or whether 
there was an error in the royal pedigree. 


As for Mr. Scott-Gatty's British dates, I have already commented 
on the sources from which they are derived, such at least as are 
not purely his own. Since their purpose was to shew probable 
cause for making Arthur son of Ambrose, it will be sufficient 
to remark that, after selecting those most favourable to his views, 
the result is to make Ambrose perhaps only sixty-three when he 
became a father — possibly (as he admits) a good deal older. 

Here Mr. Scott-Gatty*s anonymous friend "of undoubted high 
scholastic attainments " appears on the scene, to pronounce my 
paraphrase of a disputed sentence " arbitrary and inaccurate." 
The first, with all respect, it was not, since I gave reasons for 
taking the words as I did ; nor has he condescended to specify 
any inaccuracy. Were the august name revealed, no doubt I 
should tremble : as Veiled Prophet, his scholarship must speak 
for itself. Not to dwell upon the engaging simplicity with 
which he accepts the Prefaiio GUdce as an authentic work of that 
writer, I must most humbly confess myself not scholar enough 
to see in the text the sense he desires. Let me once more quote 
the passage : — 

nsque ad annnm obseRsionis Badonici montia . . . , qniqne quadragesimus 
qnartoB, nt novi, orditur [or oritur] annus, mense jam primo emenso, qui 
jam et meao nativitatis est. 

This is rendered by the great man "the year of Badon Mount 
is the fourty-fourth year," or again, "the year of Badon Mount 
dawns or begins the forty-fourth year; this he knows as sure as 
he knows the date of his own birth " ; or yet again, " the year 
of Badon Mount, which dawns {or begins) the fourty-fourth year, 
as I know well." The words " mense jam pnmo emenso " he 
has each time omitted, also the insignificant conjunction que ; and 
indeed they are very awkward for him. 

Now let me appeal to Mr. Scott-Gatty to shake off for one 
moment his exceeding modesty, and say (if his Latin be not all 
forgotten) what the words quiqu^e oritur annu8 can be but an 
inversion of anntisque qui oritur; and then, having tried to fit 
in the missing clause, confess that this time his Homer has 
nodded. I can still see nothing in the sentence but the statement 
(i) that Gildas knew all about Mount Badon ; (ii) that he wrote 
forty- three years after the battle; and (iii) that his birthday was 
in April. The obscurity of the passage once more I freely admit, 
reserving my doubts about the text. It is open, no doubt, to Bede, 
Mr. Scott-Gatty, and his learned friend, to propose any emendation 
they please ; but at best their conjectures will be a sorry foundation 
on which to build up a new system of chronology.

The Register books of St. Mary's, Fort St. George, begin in 1680, 
the year of the consecration of the church. The mannages, baptisms 
and burials for about eighty years are bound up together in one 
volume, which is of parchment. The entries from 1680 to at 
least 1730 are apparently in one handwriting. They are, presumably 
therefore, copies of the originals up to that date, and there is little 
doubt that in some instances mistakes have been made by the 
copyist. All names are here given exactly as they stand in the 
existing registers, any probable errors being indicated by a query 
inserted within brackets. 

The first marriage to take place within the new building was 
Yale's. He married the widow of Joseph Hynmers, one of the 
Company's servants. She was the daughter of a Mrs. Anne 
Elford, of London, and her youngest son by her first husband 
bore the name of Elford. ^ He is mentioned in the records at Madras, 
under date 1 685, as having a passage home provided for him and his 
brother by Elihu Yale. 

From 1680 to 1694/5 the name of the person who gives the 
bride in marriage is recorded. At first it is "given," etc., afterwards 
he is called simply "Father." In eight of the earliest marriages 
the names of two " bridemaids " and two " bridemen " are added. 
These were not necessarily single men and women; Yale acted as 
brideman on thi-ee separate occasions after his own marriage. 

In 1779 occur the fii-st signatures of the contracting parties before 
witnesses. No printed form for filling in the registers was used 
during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

A General History of the Kemp and Kempe Families of Great 
Britain and her Colonies. By Fred. Hitchin-Kemp, assisted 
by Daniel Win. Kemp, J.P., and John Tabor Kemp, M.A. 
London (Leadenhall Press, Limited). 

This handsome volume has been compiled and published on the 
principle of " the great combine." It aims at recording the pedigrees 
of nearly every family bearing the surname of Kemp or Kempe 
throughout England, and a chapter has been added which also 
includes Scotland, Ireland, *' the British Empire " and the United 
States. A scheme of this wide character has, no doubt, certain 
advantages ; it appeals to a larger class of readers than a work 
dealing with the lineage of a single family, however ancient or even 
historic, is able to obtain, but it has its demerits as well, and more 
than once while perusing these pages, it has been our fate to ba 
met at a most interesting and critical point with the remark that 
want of time or space has prevented the further elucidation of the 
matter in question. The book opens with an insti-uctive chapter 
by Mr. John Tabor Kemp on the origin of the name, which he 
shows to have been derived from different sources, e.g. from the 
Anglo-Saxon cempa, a soldier, being then equivalent to Campion and 
Champion, while in other cases it is a place name rendered in Latin 
records by de Campo and de Campis, and in English by cUte Campe, 
But Mr. Kemp goes too far in telling us that '* Many Kemps and 
Eempes in various parts of England are met with in early documents 
claiming descent from the Earls of Warwick, who had the title 
of de Bello Campo " ! ; nor can we think that de campo AmtUphij the 
monkish rendering of Champernown, has anything whatever to do 
with Amolphus Kempe. 


The more important families of the name were those settled at 
Ollantigh, in the parish of Wye in Kent, and Slindon in Sussex; 
the Norfolk Kemps, now represented by Sir Kenneth Kemp, Bart. ; 
the Kemps of Spain's Hall in Essex, and the ancient Cornish house. 
There does not appear to us to be satisfactory proof or even 
probability of a conmion origin between any of these families, 
notwithstanding that the two first, the Kentish and Norfolk Kemps, 
have long borne, apparently by lawful authority, identically the 
same arms, the garbs being no doubt allusive to the Latin form of 
the name of which mention has been made above. The lineage 
of each of these distinct families has been carefully overhauled and 
many corrections made in previously printed genealogies, while in 
the case of the Norfolk Kemps, Mr. F. Hitchin-Kemp, according 
to his preface, has had unusual opportunities, for Sir Kenneth Kemp 
allowed him access to "great chests full of Manorial Rolls and 
documents ranging from the reign of King John to the present 
time." Unfortunately no exhaustive investigation was made among 
these valuable papers, nor does there appear to have been a complete 
search in the archives of the College of Arms. The chapters 
relating to the early pedigree of the Kemps of Gissing, are not a 
little confusing, and we must hope that the facts which have been 
gleaned relating to this interesting family may be followed up by 
a further enquiry later on. The illustrations are excellent and 
profuse ; especially to be admired are those which have been executed 
from the drawings of Miss Lucy K Kemp- Welch, an accomplished 
and well known artist. The coat of arms and crest, attributed by 
some unaccountable mistake to the Kemps of Haddington and 
Edinburgh, and of which a sketch is given, will at once be 
recognised as belonging to the ducal house of Bedford. 

The Smith Family. By the Rev. Compton Reade, M.A. London 
(EUiot Stock). 

Under a title which suggests a work of fiction rather than a 
book dealing with genealogy, Mr. Compton Reade has actually 
attempted within the compass of an octavo volume of (including an 
index) only 280 pages, to give a popular account of the greater 
number of families bearing the well nigh universal cognomen of 
Smith. In so doing he claims to be the first to produce a popular 
work of genealogy giving << the lineage of the farmer or tradesman, 
side by side with that of the noble or squire," thus betraying that 
his acquaintance with genealogical literature in this country and in 
the United States during the last decade cannot be very extensive. 
Mr. Reade always writes pleasantly and his obiter dicta are marked 
by shrewd common sense, but to the advanced student this book 
will hardly be of much assistance, for as regards descents which 
have appeared in ordinary works of reference, it is avowedly merely a 
compilation, and in some cases not even the best printed account has 
been selected. The pedigrees inserted at first hand are either extremely 
modem, or for the most part, unaccompanied by evidences. The 
collection of tabular pedigrees from the Heralds' Visitations, though 
it does not pretend to be complete, is of considerable interest, and 



serves to show how useful a work might be compiled which should 
embody records relating to this most common of all English surnames. 

Mr. Reade justly animadverts upon the absurd delusion as to 
their ancestry which induced a Ix>ndon banker to assume the title 
of Baron Carrington, and his son to take the surname of Carrington 
in lieu of Smith, though they possessed no drop of the old Carington 
blood, but passes over without comment the even more glaring 
delusions of the real Caringtons themselves, firstly, that they were 
descended through a certain Hamo, living at the Conquest, from 
the Comtes de Carinton in Normandy, which Hamo gave his name 
to " Carinton " in Cheshire, and, secondly, that one of the family 
(appropriately bom and bred in Gascony) in 1404, having been, as 
an adherent of Richard II, under attainder, not only changed his 
name to Smyth, but also adopted a fresh coat of arms ! 

By his remarks on p. 99 Mr. Reade is clearly uncertain how to 
place Henry Smith, the Regicide, in the pedigree of the Smiths of 
Withcote, and as his guess is rather wide of the mark, we append 
the true descent, for which we are mainly indebted to a gentleman 
who has devoted considerable attention to the Withcote line.

It will be observed that the above pedigree clearly proves that 
the Regicide left only one child, a daughter, and so disposes once 
and for all of the claim to descend from him (which Mr. Reade 
repeats on p. 118) made by the family until recently settled at 


Shortgrove in Essex, though some members of this line have apparently 
gone 80 far as to assume the surname of Heriz. 

Many other pedigrees contained in this book provoke criticism, 
but, as our author reminds us, there are only twenty-four hours 
in a day. 

Wiltshire Notes and Queries : An Illustrated Quarterly 
Antiquarian and Genealogical Magazine. Vol. iii, 1899- 
1901. Devizes (George Simpson). London (Phillimore and Co.). 

Under the careful editorship of Mr. Arthur Schomberg, Wiltshire 
Notes and Queries fully maintains its reputation as one of 
the best local publications of its kind. Mr. Edward Kite is 
responsible for several articles in this volume, and his " Notes on 
Amesbury Monastery " have produced some critical remarks from 
other contributors, a sure sign that they have been read with 
interest. Another of Mr. Kite's papers deals with " Old Lackham 
House and its Owners," and contains a view of the house reproduced 
from Dingley's " History from Marble," and a later sketch taken 
in 1790. Under the heading "Records of Wiltshire Parishes," the 
village of Bratton is still under consideration, its history being 
illustrated by ancient charters, assize rolls, and old wills. Lovers 
of the by-paths of history will appreciate " The Goodenoughs of 
Sherston," by Mary light, which includes an autograph letter of 
Richard Goodenough, one of the conspirators in the Rye House 
Plot, dated 11 July 1689, and a portrait believed to be that of the 
same notorious individual. Another interesting paper is that which 
deals with the ancestry of Judge Nicholas, a Baron of the Exchequer 
under Cromwell. Several correspondents discuss the mysterious dis- 
appearance from the Parish Register of Milston of the entry which 
recorded the baptism of the celebrated Joseph Addison. The Feet 
of Fines for Wiltshire are carried from 23 Henry VIII to 
4 Edward VI ; and Mr. Norman Penney continues his valuable 
Quaker Records. We venture to suggest that in the next volume 
there should be a table of contents similar to that which is inserted 
in each volume of The Genealogist. 

The Tauntons of Oxford. By One of Them. London (Elliot Stock). 

A pedigree of this family, carried, almost without a break, to the 
reign of Edward I, was printed in the earlier editions of Burke's 
Landed Gentry and in some other works, but the writer of this 
little book, has discarded this descent as incapable of proof, and has 
elected to commence with the Rev. Joseph Taunton, Vicar of 
Quethiock, in Cornwall, who heads the pedigree as officially recorded 
in the College of Arms. There can be no question as to the wisdom 
of this course, but it seems not a little curious that so enthusiastic 
a genealogist should have been unable to trace the immediate fore- 
fathers of a beneficed clergyman, who died as late as 1712. One 
member of the race has attained some distinction, namely Sir William 
Elias Taunton, once a well known Judge of the Court of King's

John Harrington, of Kelston, Somerset. — " The Marriage 
Licences in the Diocese of Bath and Wells," p. 185, printed in 
the last number of The Genealogist, include that of the above John 
Harrington and an Eleanor Foslet, of Bath. Since the name of 
the lady is incorrect, it may be advisable to state that the marriage 
is recorded in the Register of this parish as foUows : — 

Jhon Harrington Esq* k M" Helena Gk>sslett married Aug : 6 : 

The above Helena Gk>sslett was the eldest daughter and coheiress 
of Benjamin Gosslett, Esq., of Marshfield, co. Glouc, and was fourth 
wife of the above John Harrington. 

Francis J. Potnton, 

Rector of Kelston. 

Sir Richard Fry, Knt. — Burke gives Joan, daughter of Edmund 
Beaufort, Duke of Somerset, grandson of John of Gaunt, as wife 
first of Lord Howth and secondly of Sir Richard Fry, Knt. The 
Fry monument in Membury Church, Devon, records the descent 
of Fry of Yarty from John of Gaunt, through Jane (wife of John 
Fry, of Feniton, Esq.) "daughter of Edward, Duke of Somerset, 
ye grandson of John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster, who was ye 
son of King Edward the Third." Evidently there ia an error 
somewhere. Perhaps John Fry of Feniton, was son of Sir Richard 
Fry. As a descendant of Fry of Yarty, I should be grateful if 
anyone who is constantly turning over early rolls could clear up 
this point, or give any data touching this Fry and Beaufort marriage. 


Ratcliff of Stepney. — Hugh Ratcliff, "gentilman of the Mydle 
temple of London," as he styles himself in his will (proved by his 
relict at Lambeth, 28 Nov. 1531, P.C.C, 11 Thower), devises all 
his lands and tenements lying in the parish of ** Stebenhigh " to 


his wife '* MileseD " for life, and after to her children, one of whom, 
Margaret Ratcliff, married 1, John Ackland, of Ackland ; 2, John 
Brett, of Whitstanton, Somerset. The fifth quartering on the Acland 
monument in Broadclist Church, Devon, is, Arg, a bend engr. Sa.^ 
a crescent Or, for difference (Ratcliff). One writer states that Hugh 
Ratcliff, of Stepney, was of a younger branch of the Earls of Sussex. 
The crescent would seem to indicate that he was a second son.

Le JouB, JowEB, Jewkr. — Can any reader of The Genealogist add 
to the following particulars of this family 1 In a survey of the 
Manor of Cattishill, in Godalming, Surrey, made in 1292 (Escheats, 
20 Edward I), John le Jour is named as entitled to lOd. yearly 
out of the total revenue of XIO Is. lOJd. In 1297-98 Roger le 
Jour, of Stanewell, appears as one of the **> manucaptores " for 
Sir Richard de Windsor, Knt., on his election as a knight of the 
shire for Middlesex, and in the same year, 1298, Adam le Jour, 
of Woubume, fills the same office for Sir Laurence de Bluntes- 
don, Knt., on his becoming representative to Parliament {Vide 
Parliamentary Writs, temp. Edward I). In 1321 John Jour and 
Beatrice, his wife, and the heirs of Beatrice, release to John 
Lucas eighteen acres in Eynesford, Kent (Ped. Fin., Kent). On 
1 May 1335 William Jour, with others, is fined on the complaint 
of John Morice, of Cambridge, for assault; and on 3 Aug. 1339, 
a pardon under the Privy Seal, at the request of Ralph de Ufford, 
was granted to Hugh Jour, of Burgh, " hayward " to Dame Davylers, 
for the manslaughter of John Sweyn, of Hayles ( Vide Patent Rolls, 
1335, memb. 23; 1339, memb. 27). In 1390, John Jour, of Stisted, 
and others, sue John Broke and Margaret, his wife, concerning 
a messuage, garden, and twenty-six acres of land in Newington 
and Southwark. In a rental of the Manor of Tongham, in Surrey, 
John Joure is one of the three copyholders, and the family continued 
there until the end of the eighteenth century. In a Manor Roll 
of the Manor and Hundred of Godalming, in 1483, William Jowre 
held land of Margaret Towersle, and John Jowre held, by copy of 
Court Roll, land in Shekelford (Shalford), and the name occurs in 
wills and Lay Subsidies in Surrey, chiefly in the Hundred of 
Famham, and in Hants, while a branch settled at Easebourne and 
the adjoining town of Midhurst, in Sussex, in the seventeenth and 
early part of the eighteenth centuries. Thpmas Joure held a 
messuage and thirty acres of land in Peperharrow before 1506, 
from William Brocas, by copy of Court RoU, from which Richard 
Pexall, the heir of Brocas, tried to eject William Joure by force 
{Vide Chancery Proceedings, 1553). The descendants of Hugh Jour, 
of Burgh, in Suffolk, continued in that county and can be traced 
by wills; they are found at Burgh as late as 1530, and later at 
Ipswich. In the Visitation of Suffolk, in 1664, Luke Jour, Jower, 
or Jours, entered his Arms as, Az. the sun in splendour Or, hetw.

with the note, ''Came out of France." The name, in course of 


time, has uDdergone many modificatioDs of spelling, an instance of 
Shewer in the seventeenth century, indicates the soft pronunciation 
of the French Jour ; even Jewerie and Jury can be identified in 
two or three instances. 

Arthur J. Jewers. 

Lash AM. — Any information as to the family of Lasham, believed 
to have originally sprung from the village of Lasham, Hants, will 
be gratefully welcomed. The name occurs in The Parish Registers 
at Headley, Hants, in 1593, and later at Selbome, but the earliest 
mention of the family appears to be in SuiSblk — InquisitionSj Ed. I, 
1272, Babberg Hundred — one Richard de Lasham appears. Feet of 
FineSf 1320— Stuston, near Eye, SuiSblk, "John de Lasham and 
Maria, his wife," occur. In 1323, William de Lasham, lord of the 
manor of Plessis {Qy, now Place Farm), Hadleigh, was seized of 
one messuage, seventy acres of land and fifteen acres of woodland ; 
his heir, aged thirty, was named John. The lords of the manor 
of Lasham appear to have held Denham manor, SuJSblk, contiguous 
to Eye and Stuston. The name also appears at '^ Reamseye," 
Huntingdon, 1296, when one Stephen de Lassham and Sarah, his 
wife, had a grant of land made to them.

Hall Family (ante, p. 144). — The Hall crest mentioned has surely 
some connection with the Hall arms on the monument to Robert 
Hall, D.D., Canon and Treasurer of Exeter Cathedral, which are: — 
Sable three talbots heads erased^ impaling, Arg, masonry a chief 
indented Sa. (Reynell). Robert was the eldest of the six sons of 
Bishop Jos. Hall (Bishop of Exeter, 1627-41), and married Rebecca, 
fourth daughter and coheir of Richard Reynell, of Creedy, Devon, 
and the Middle Temple, Esq. 

A large number of the emigrants to New England were from 
Devon. Besides the family of Bishop Hall, who was not a Devonian 
by birth, there were other families of the name in the county. Sir 
Thomas Hall, of Wiltshire, married a Seymour, of Berry Pomeroy, 
Devon. Walter Hall, of Okehampton, Devon, was licenced to marry 
Joanna Reynell of the same or Honeychurch, Dec. 31, 1631.

* Her first husband Thomas Blower in his will, dated 7 Nov., pr. 18 Dec. 
1551 (P.C.C, 36 Backe) desires to be bur. in St. Dulistan's, near the 
tomb of Alice, his first wife. The will of Margaret Kirton mentions her 
sister Isabel Hampcottcs, and that of Alderman Robert Harding, dated 
20 Nov. 1568 (P.C.C, 26 Babington), mentions " Mrs. Hamcottes, Sir Thomas 
Offeley's sister." 

- In the Offley Manuscript she is wrongly called Joane^ but the wills of 
her two husbands Thomas Michel! and James Leveson prove that her name 
was Margery. Tlie will of Thomas Michell, dated 9 Feb. 1526-7, was proved 
P.C.C. 12 April 1527, by the executors John Nicholls (husband of his wife's 
sister Margaret Offley) and Humfrey Bame. It was probably as executor 
of the former that Sir Thomas Offley took the active part in the administra- 
tion of Michell's estate, described in the Manuscript. Shortly after her first 
husband's death Margery became the wife of James Leveson, son not of 
Nicholas, as in the Manuscript, but of Richard Leveson, and brother of 
Nicholas. James Leveson, in his will, dated 8 April 1545, and proved P.C.C. 
28 Oct. 1547, made Margery his wife one of his executors, and desired that 
memory should be made upon his grave, or near it, of himself and his two 
wives Alice and Margery. His first wife was not daughter of Sir Rowland 
Hill, as stated in the Manuscript, but was clearly Alice dau. of Bichsurd 
Wrottesley of Wrottesley. Alice, who was living 1518 (the date of her 
father's will) was the mother of three sons — Sir Richard Leveson, Walter 
Leveson, and Edward Leveson. Sir Richard, the eldest of these sons, in his 
will, dated 14 Oct., proved 28 Nov. 1560, made his "uncles" Sir Rowland 
Hill (his wife's great uncle) and Walter Wrottesley (his mother's brother) 
overseers. Richard Wrottesley, the father of Alice, in his will (of which 
there is an abstract printed in General Wrottesley's History of the Family 
of Wrottesley, p. 255), mentions his " son James Lewson."

At page 36 of Vol. xviii of The Genealogist (N.S.), in a com- 
munication by Mr. J. H. Round, it is stated, on the authority of 
G.E.C.'8 Complete Feerctgey^ that William, Ist Earl of Portland, 
married Frances, dau. of Sir Edward Villiers by his (first) wife, 
Frances Howard. 

The following is an abstract of the will of Frances, dau. of Sir 
Edward Villiers aforesaid, dated 17 July 1704, proved P.C.C., 
11 March 1707-8 (Barrett 75):— 

I Frances Villiers of the City of Westminster do make my last 
Will and Testament in form following. My body to be privately 
buried in the Church of the Paiish in which I may die. My 
debts, if any, to be paid. 

To my nieces Frances and Katherine, daus. of my bro. Mr. Henry 
Villiers, £100 apiece. The £100 per an. payable out of her Majesty's 
Court of Exchequer, for which tally was struck 25 March last past, 
to which I am entitled for life and the life of Lady Ann Hamilton 
dau. of George Earl of Orkney, and the survivor of us, I bequeath 
to my said niece Lady Ann Hamilton. The other £100 per an. 
out of same court for which tally was struck on the same day to 
which I am entitled for life and the life of Mrs. Barbara Villiers, 
dau. of my bro : Mr. Henry Villiers, and the survivor of us, I 
bequeath to my said niece Barbara Villiers. 

Further to my sd. niece Barbara Villiers all my household stuff 
and contents of my house. 

The afsd. legacies of £100 apiece to be paid to my said nieces 
Frances and Catherine Villiers within 3 years with legal interest 

Residue to my Exors in trust to pay the same to my said niece 
Lady Ann Hamilton, but in case my said niece shall die un- 
married and before she attains the age of 21, then my exors shall 
pay the same to the next dau. of my sister Orkney, and so on, 
and in default as my sister Orkney may appoint. 

One year's wages to each of my servants. 

I appoint my dearly beloved sister Elizabeth Countess of Orkney 
and Thomas Brodrick of Wandsworth, Surrey Esq., my exors. 

Signed by above Frances Villiers in presence of R. Gee, Ann Emes, 
Will : Sutton. 

It is plain from this will that the testatrix was not the wife of 
the Earl of Portland. 

Sir Edward Villiers aforesaid in his will, dated 8 May 1685 
(P.C.C. Ent 105), mentions his wife Dame Martha (his second 
wife ; see her will P.C.C. Hrodripp 266) ; two sons, Sir Edward

(afterwards Ist Earl of Jersey) and Henry (succeeded his father as 
€k>yemor of T3mmoath Castle) ; and six daughters, in the following 
order : — 
1st. Barbara (who mar*^ John, 4th Yisct. Fitz Hardinge of Bere- 

2nd. Frances (as above). 
3rd. Katherine (mar*^ first James Lewis du Puissar, and secondly 

her cousin William, 2d son of George 4th Yisct. Grandison). 
4th. Elizabeth (the well known Countess of Orkney). 
5th. Henrietta (mar^ John 2nd Earl of Breadalbane). 
6th. Mary (mar^ William, 3rd Earl of Inchiquin). 

Can the first wife of Lord Portland have been a (seventh) daughter 
named Anne as stated by Sir Egerton Brydges and in Burke's 
Peerage (1893), or were there two daughters named Frances 1

In the last number of The Genealogist will be found an article 
of mine on the Yisitations of Wales, by Lewis Dwnn, in which 
is set forth the present location of those autographs which relate 
to six out of the twelve Welsh counties now existing. I further said 
that although Sir Samuel Rush Meyrick, in the introduction to his 
printed edition of those Visitations, had given a v>erh<Uim copy of 
the patent issued by R. Cooke, Clarenceux, and William Flower, 
Norroy, to Lewis Dwnn to act as their official deputy, nothing 
was known of the existence of the original deputation at the 
College of Arms, although, after much search, it had been unearthed 
by Gregory King, Rouge Dragon, at Meyrick'a instigation, nearly 
sixty years ago. I am, however, glad to say that, thanks to a 
search undertaken by Mr. Alfred S. Scott-Gat ty, York Herald, this 
deputation has now been re-discovered. It is a lengthy document, 
and as it already exists in print in Meyrick's work, which is not 
very difficult of access, I do not propose to occupy the valuable 
space of The GenecUogist by reciting its terms. What is more 
important is the consideration of the questions — of what authoiity 
is this document 1 Is it the original patent, and if not, what is it 1 
To answer these queries we must examine it carefully. It is written 
on paper in a legible and clerk-like hand, without alterations, 
emendations, or additions, and is obviously not a rough draft. It 
is dated Feb. 3, 1585. No signatures are attached. At the foot, 
in a quite different hand, are these words — "Taken out of Wales 
Yisitation booke nu 136." On turning over the paper we find it 
endorsed by two entries of great importance, side by side thus — 

A debitacion from A debitacion from 

R. C. and W°* Flower me and Norroy to one 

for one to vyset some to vyset some part 

part of Wales. of Wales. 


234 LEWYS dwnn's patent as deputy herald. 

These entries are both evidently the writing of Robert Ck)oke 
himself, and are in a hand differing from either of the other two 
referred to above. From these interesting particulars one thing is 
clear. This document is not Dwnn's patent itself, for it is not 
signed by the Kings of Arms who appointed Dwnn as their deputy. 
But I cannot conceive any reason why a signed and sealed patent, 
handed to a deputy herald as evidence "to all and singular " of 
his delegated powers, should be in the College at all. We may 
feel pretty confident that he died in possession of it, and that it 
shared the fate of some of his MSS. after his death. An official 
herald who dies bequeathing all his collections to the College 
might conceivably include his patent in such a bequest, but even 
that is not at all probable, and we know that Dwnn*s actual 
viaitcUions are not (at any rate now) in that institution where they 
shoiUd be, and there is, therefore, less reason to expect his own 
patent to be there, where it should tiot be. The nature of the 
document brought to light admits of no doubt. It could not be 
the original signed patent that passed out of the College over 
three centuries ago into the hands of Lewis Dwnn on his appoint- 
ment, but is an official and certified copy of that patent — the official 
counterpart, endorsed in the actual hand of Clarenceux himself, as 
is clearly proved by the terms of the endorsement and the expression 
" by me and Norroy." This, then, is the official record of Dwnn's 
appointment and of the terms of reference contained in his patent, 
of which it is an exact and certified copy. It would be the merest 
pedantry to require further proof that Dwnn was properly authorised 
by patent to act for Clarenceux and Norroy in Wales. Such auto- 
graph Visitations properly taken, dated and attested by the head 
of the family concerned, are, it will hardly be denied, entitled to 
an official recognition beyond that accorded to mere collections of 
pedigrees, however excellent, that have no Collegiate authority. 
The main difficulty in the way of this recognition, since the 
important discovery of the counterpart of the deputation, arises 
from the fact that Dwnn's autographs are not at the College ; 
but those at the British Museum, at any rate, are accessible to 
all, and photographic facsimiles can easily be obtained, so that 
this difficulty is not so great as it might appear. It may be 
observed that Dwnn, in his title page to the South Wales 
Visitation, records his title of Deputy Herald at Arms to Clarenceux 
and Norroy, under Seal. Until lately almost nothing was known 
of Dwnn except through Meyrick's printed work, and though a copy 
of the latter is to be found in the College of Arms, it was not to 
be expected that a mere printed book, largely in Welsh, and partly 
composed of pedigrees attributed to a writer of whose claims to 
hersJdic status nothing was known, would be regarded as of any 
special value from the Collegiate point of view. Now, however, 
that the MSS. of Dwnn are partially traced and the original 
deputation, duly attested, discovered, it is not unreasonable to 
believe that Dwnn's position will in future receive a higher meed 
of recognition than was possible hitherto to accord him.

Cahir Conlish, CO. Limerick. 

A letter from the Rev. Robert John Gabbett, dated 24 April 
[1869 11 from Foynes Vicarage, co. Limerick, states that " In the 
chancel of Cahir Conlish Church was formerly a tombstone, whose 
fragments are now in the churchyard ; on these is this inscription : — 


. . . Aphra Maunsbll, my dear mother, daughter of Sir William 
Crafford, of Kent. Here also lies the body of my deare wife, 
Mart Maunsell, daughter of George Booth, Esq., of Cheshire, 
and of my sister Aphra Peacock, and of her daughter Ann 
Peacock. Erected by me, John Maunsell, Esq., and intended for 
myself and for my family this 17 of October 1662."^® 

On 15 Dec. 1859 according to a letter of that date, from Mr. 
J. N. G. Atkins Davis, Mill Cottage, Woolwich, the following 
fragment was all that then remained, viz. : — " . . . nsell, my dear 
mothe . . . ford of Kent. Here a . . . ary Mansell, daugh . . . 
. . . hire and of my sister Aphr . . . ne Pecocke. Erected by me 
. . . ded for myself and ... of October 1662." 

The abovenamed Aphra Maunsell appears to have been living 
21 Sep. 1651, according to a legacy receipt of that date among 
the papers at Thorpe Malsor Hall, as under : — " Sep. y* 21st 1651, 
Rec** the day of the year above men*^ of John Maunsell, of Thorpe 
Malsor in y* county of Nor°, Esq., the full summe of tenn pounds 
sterlen ... it being a legacy^® given to my late sonne Richard 
Maunsell, by my late brother Richard Maunsell of the Middle 
Temple, London, which summe I do acknowledge to have rec** being 
executor to my late sonn Richard Maunsell. Witness my hand 
Aphra Mansell." 

Entries Written in an Old Bible at Thorpe Malsor Hall. 

" This bible did belong to Anne, Lady Wray, Sir Drury Wray's 
Lady ; since to her daughter Diana Twigge, now to her grand- 
daughter Anne Maunsell, who gave it to her eldest son Thos. Cecill 
Maunsell, who left it to his brother Archdeacon William Maunsell, 
who gave it to his eldest son Thos. P. Maunsell, 1815." 

"My Grandfather Thomas Maunsell, got the Thorpe estate 1728 
and went to live there. Died 27 Sep. 1739. My grandmother died 
3 April 1747, both in England." 

" My father Thomas Maunsell, of Clovervill, co. Limerick, Esq., 
was born 12 March 1704. He died 7 Oct. 1768 about 9 or 10 
at night. Married 3 April 1726, Ann, 2d daughter of Rev. William 
Twigge, Archdeacon of Limerick ; buried at St. John's, who was 
born 20 Dec. 1703, and died 28 April 1789, aged 85."

the name in both cases is " Alphra," and where iive words at the beginning

writing (which purports to be a copy of the inscription) written in a 
modem hand on a loose slip of paper, at Thorpo Malsor. 

*• Presumably the "legacy" was merely a direction in writing, as Richard 
Maunsell, of the Middle Temple, died intestate in 1631; most probably the 
bequest was not to take effect till after the death of his wife, who sarvived 
him, and not improbably died in or shortly before 1651.

more extensive history of the Maunsell family. 

" Copy [of] Case Submitted ppR Counsel's Opinion re Loss of 
LowESMOBE Fabm, neab Glosteb, about 1646. 

The Case concerning Lowesmore Fai*m, being a lease about twenty 
years yet to come 1646. John Maunsell of Thorpe Malsor in co. 
Northants being possessed of Lowesmore Farme in co. Gloster sold 
the same to Richard Maunsell of the Middle Temple Esq. his uncle, 
who took for his assurance a covenant for the said John Maunsell 
to convey it to whom he should nominate by his last will and 
testament or other declaration in writing. 

1631 Richard Maunsell by a declaration in writing in nature 
of will gave Losemore farm to Dorothy his wife for life. And 
he willed that after her decease the children of the said John 
Maunsell of Thorpe Malsor and of Thomas Maunsell his brother 
in Ireland should have every one ten pounds out of the first rents, 
and that Susan, the wife of John Maunsell should have £20 per 
annum. The rest to be divided betwixt Robert Maunsell the son 
of John and one of the sons of his brother Thomas Maunsell, and 
by him to be nominated to be a student in the Middle Temple. 
Shortly after the said Richard Maunsell died John Maunsell took 
letters of Adm" and conveyed the estates in trust to perform 
the said declaration. 

1638 the said Dorothy widow of Richard Maunsell, married 
Thomas Haselwood of Belton in the co. of Rutland Esq. who 
enjoyed the estate until it was sequestrated by the Committee of 
Gloucester, he being a recusant in arms against the Parliament. 
He, coming in to submit and make his composition, was committed 
prisoner to Leycester where he now remains. Thomas Maunsell 
died at Gloucester, and before his death nominated John Maunsell 
his son, now Lieutenant to Major Babington, to have the moiety 
of • Losemore. 

Query — What remedy is in this Case by address to the Parliament 
for the above mentioned Dorothy Haselwood, being a recusant, 
but hath lived in the Parliament Quarters and is impoverished 
by her husbands delinquency ; 

or for John Maunsell of Thorpe Malsor in respect of his wife 
and childrens interest and is now Justice of Peace, Com'ttee 
of Accounts for Northampton and hath lost near XI, 000, by 
the Cavaliers. 

or for Lieutenant John Maunsell to whom much is due in arreai*8, 
and hath received great wounds in the Parliament Service."

connection with the Whitby family. Sir Hugh in his will " is thankful to the 
Almighty Providence that from the East broujfht me a man of my owno

OF 1630. 

Among the Companies formed in King Charles's time, for colonizing 
New England, was one, of minor importance and small success, 
whose real history has never been written. While attempting to 
present the main facts about it to English antiquaries through The 
Genealogisty I hope to obtain their help in tracing the reason for 
the Company's existence and the origin of its known agents. 

The venture of the Mayflower Pilgrims in establishing Plymouth 
Colony turned the attention of English Puritans, of all varieties of 
doctrine, to New England as a fruitful field in which to plant 
their religious ideas. England teemed with small sects, inconsiderable 
in themselves, but important collectively as representing that de- 
parture from the English Church as established by the Tudors and 
Stuarts, which led to the Civil War and to greater independence 
of religious thought. 

About the year 1629 there was formed, probably in London, a 
small body of Dissenters called the " Company of Husbandmen " 
or the "Company of the Plough." These names were perhaps 
scriptural in their allusion, for the members of the Company seem 
to have been merchants and artizans, rather than actual husbandmen. 
Who were the originators of this Company, or what was their 
special doctrine does not appear. Their chosen pastor was the 
Rev. Stephen Bachiler, one of the most earnest, as well as one 
of the most unfortunate of the Puritan ministers of his day. 

Stephen Bachiler was bom about 1561, and in 1585-6 took 
his B.A. at St. John's College, Oxford. In 1587 he was presented

to the living of Wherwell, Hants, by Lord La Warr, and for 
eighteen years was Vicar of that parish. A man of strong impulse 
and an essential Radical, he must early have embraced the Puritan 
doctrines, for he was, in 1605, ejected from his pleasant vicarage, 
probably one of the first ejections resulting from King James's 
Hampton Court Conference of 1604, when the King declared he 
would "make the Puritans conform or harry them out of the 
kingdom." Of Bachiler's family and early history, as of his life 
from 1605 to 1630, little is known. Tradition says he fled to 
Holland, to escape the persecution by the English Bishops, of which 
VVinthrop's History speaks. This association with Holland may not 
have been because of religious persecution, for some of Bachiler's 
children lived there ; but a search in the church and town records 
of Flushing and Middelburg reveals nothing concerning the sturdy 
old Puritan. The children of Stephen Bachiler, as far as known, 
were — 

1. Nathaniel, bom about 1589. A merchant of Southampton; 
married Hester Mercer of Southampton, sister of Peter, Paul and 
Rev. Francis Mercer, and of Jane (Mercer) Pryaulx, wife of 
Capt. Peter Pryaulx of Southampton. Nathaniel Bachiler left 
children, Nathaniel (who settled in Hampton, New Hampshire), 
Anne (married Daniel du Cornet of Middelburg, Holland), Stephen, 
Francis and I^njamin. 

2. Deborah, born 1591 ; married Rev. John Wing (son of 
Matthew of Banbury, Oxon), first pastor of the Puritan Church 
at Flushing, afterwards minister of the Puritan Church at the 
Hague, Holland, died in 1630, ancestor of the Wings of Cape 

3. Samuel, born about 1592, Minister in Sir (Jharles Morgan's 
regiment in Holland. Called to be minister in Middelburg in 
1622, but declined. Author of "Miles Christianus," published 
in 1625. 

4. Stephen, born about 1594. Matriculated at Magdalen 
College, Oxford, 1610. 

5. Theodate, born 1598 ; married Captain and Councillor 
Christopher Hussey of Hampton, New Hampshire — perhaps a 
relative of Christopher Hussey, Mayor of Winchester in 1609, 
1618 and 1631. 

6. Anne, born 1600 ; married [Johnl] Samborne, probably of 
the Hants family of that name. A widow in 1631, living in the 
Strand in London. Her children settled in Hampton, New 

It has seemed to me that Stephen Bachiler, always a loyal 
Hampshire man, never could have left for long that county which 
the associations of his early life had endeared to him. It is 
certain that in 1622 he was living on a small property of his 
own in Newton Stacy, but a mile from his old parish of 
Wherwell ; and in the State Papers of 1635 (Domestic Series) 
we find a petition from Sir Robert Paine, Church Warden of 


Barton Stacy, Hants, to the effect that some of his tenants, 
"having been formerly misled by Stephen Bachelor, a notorious 
inconformist, had demolished a consecrated chapel at Newton 
Stacy," etc. 

But while BachUer was living in Hampshire and preaching 
the Puritan faith, the Company of Husbandmen was forming, and 
they conceived the plan of sending a band of settlers into New 
England to propagate their ideas. We may believe that, hearing 
of Bachiler's fame, they asked him to become their pastor; and, 
though seventy years of age, he at once seized the opportunity 
and cast in his lot with theirs. His friend John Winthrop was 
then arranging for his own settlement in New England, and 
Bachiler doubtless dreamed of establishing there his Colony of 
Husbandmen, in an Arcadia of religious freedom. Sir Ferdinando 
Gk>rges was the principal figure in the ** Council of Plymouth," 
and was one of King James's grantees of vast estates in the 
New World. To Gorges the Plough Company turned, and on 
June 26th, 1630, they obtained by patent a tract of land, the 
best description of which is given as follows in an Abstract of 
Title prepared in 1686 by George Turfrey, attorney for the heirs 
of Col. Alexander Rigby : — 

"The Earle of Warwick and Sir Ferdinando Gorges, for them- 
selves and the rest of the Councell of Plimouth by indents dated 
26 June the 6 year of the raigne of Charles I, grant unto 
Bryan Binckes, John Dye, John Smith, and others their associates 
two Islands in the River Sagedahock near the South side thereof 
about sixty miles from the sea, and also a tract containing forty 
miles in length and forty miles in breadth upon the South side 
of the River Sagedahock, with all Bayes, Rivers, Ports, Inletts, 
etc., together with all Royalties and Privileges within the 
precincts thereof." 

The terms of this patent were broad, and, as in other cases, 
infringed on later grants, causing much litigation. A literal inter- 
pretation of the Plough Patent would include a large and valuable 
tract in South-Eastern Maine, taking in the present city of Portland. 
Armed with this authority the Company bought a small ship, 
equipped it with ordnance and provisions, and sent its 6rst load 
of colonists to the new province. Ten or twelve of the "Company 
of the Plough " formed this little band. They probably reached 
the Sagadehock in the winter of 1630-1, and found the land wild 
and sterile. Disheartened at the prospect, they made a feeble 
attempt at settling there, but after a few weeks or months they 
gave up the idea, and embarked again in their little vessel for 
the more fertile and prosperous settlements near Boston. The first 
record of them is in Winthrop*s History, dated July 6th, 1631 : — 
"A small ship of 60 tons arrived at Natascot, Mr. Graves, master. 
She brought ten passengers from London. They came with a patent 
for Sagadahock, but, not liking the place, they came hither. Their 
ship drew ten feet, and went up to Watertown ; but she ran on 
ground twice by the way. These were the Company called * The 
Husbandmen' and their ship called The Plough,'' Thus far the 


original entry in Winthrop's journal ; but a later hand (perhaps 
his own in after years), added this opprobrium, — " Most of them 
proved familists and vanished away." That they were " familists " 
in the offensive German sense, we have no proof except this entry, 
but perhaps this term may give a clue to the special religious 
organization which should have bound the Husbandmen together 
but did not. Their small ship. The Plough^ after visiting Watertown, 
dropped back to Charlestown, started thence for the West Indies, 
bi't returned after three weeks, "so broke," Winthrop says, "she 
couM not return home." 

Th'is the summer of 1631 found the first colonists of The Plough 
in the Massachusetts Bay, their ship worthless and their ideas of 
settlement abandoned. 

In the meantime the Company in London, imagining that all 
had gone well with their brethren in New England, went on 
vigorously with the work. Stephen Bachiler threw all his influence 
into the scale, and enlisted some of his Hampshire parishioners and 
adherents as possible members of the Company. His efiforts at 
this time may have produced the grant of arms referred to in 
Silvanus Morgan's "Sphere of Gentry" of 1661, one of the most 
rare and fantastic of early heraldic works. This author says that 
the arms, " Vert, a plough in fesse ; in base the sun rising. Or," 
"appertain to Stephen Bachelor, the first pastor of the Church of 
Ligonia in New England; which bearing was answerable to his 
profession in plowing up the fallow ground of their hearts, and 
the Sun, appearing in that part of the World, symbolically alluded 
to his motto * Sol Justitiae Ex oritur.'" It is worth noting that 
Morgan in the same volume devotes some space to a handsome 
plate of the arms of the Ix>ndon Pryaulx family, Bachiler's connections. 
Among the prospective members of the Plough Company probably 
brought in by 13achiler was a near kinsman, Richard Dummer, of 
Bishopstoke, Hants, son of John Pyldrin als. Dummer, of Swathling, 
Hants, who was a wealthy yeoman or gentleman. A man of 
substance, Dummer's name gave strength to the Plough Company. 

For some unexplained reason the Company in London had not 
heard by March, 1632, of the failure of their first colony, and 
we find them pushing the work and straining their narrow 
fortunes to make it a success. Bachiler had sold his lands in 
Newton Stacy and invested the proceeds in his new venture. 
Early in March the second party of Colonists left England, part 
in the Whale, which reached Boston May 26th, 1632, bringing 
Richard Dummer, Nathaniel Harris, John Smith (son of Francis 
Smith, a miller), Anthony Jupe, Ann Smith (wife of John Smith 
who came in The Plough) and her daughter, and Nathaniel 
Merriman, son of George Merriman of London. The William 
and Francis, which left London March 9th, 1632, and reached 
Boston June 5th, 1632, brought among its sixty passengers 
Stephen Bachiler and his wife, his grandchild, Nathaniel Bachiler, 
his three Samborne grandchildren, and several of his Hampshire 
adherents. It also brought a shipment of Company goods, as 
will appear later, and two more Company men, Thomas Payne 


of Sandwich, and John Bannister, a Yorkshireman. Bachiler 
brought with him a letter from the London Company, which I 
print in full as giving minute particulars of the Colonization. 

Grace, Mercy and Peace be multiplied forever. 

London, March the 8th, 1631. 


Wo, as members of the same body scud greeting in the name of cor 
Lord and Saviour, hoping and wishing your health as our own; and as at 
this time wc all are, thanks be unto God. Many things we have to write 
you of but our time hath been so taken up with forwarding, helping and pro- 
viding things fitting for these our brethren that are now to come unto you 
that we shall not possibly experience or put that to ink and paper which we 
desired ; wo hope that they will relate to you anything material that we fail 
to write. 

And first let us not forget to remember you of your and our duty, that 
we return humble and hearty thanks unto Almighty God, that hath filled 
the heart of our reverend pastor so full of zeal, of love and extraordinary 
affection towards our poor society. Notwithstanding all the opposition, all 
the subtle persuasions of abundance of opposers that have been stirred up 
against us partly through self-love not affecting the general servitude and 
partly through that untimely breach of our brother German, yet he remaineth 
constant, — persuading and exhorting, — yea and as much as in him lyeth, con- 
straining all that love him to join together with this society. Ajid seeing the 
Company is not liable to bear his charge over, he hath strained himself to 
provide ]>rovision for himself and his family, and hath done his utmost 
endeavor to help over as many as he ])088ibly can, for your further strength 
and encouragement. And, although it may be if he had stayed one year longer 
you might have been better provided to have received him, yet through his 
great care of all your good he will by no means stay longer from you. O 
let us not forget this unspeakable mercy of God towards us. We hope the 
Lord will make him an especial instrument to unite you all in true love to 
God and unto one another; which will he our strongest walls and bulwarks 
of defence against all our enemies. And we hope you will not forget to show 
your love unto him and to take notice of the charges he is now at, and to 
appoint for him and his, as he shall desire, such shares and parts of shares 
as shall belong unto his for the charges; and that his man-servant and his 
maid-servant may be received as members of the Company and have such 
shares or parts as in that case provided for every member. As for his neigh- 
bors that now come with him, they promise all to join with you, but because 
they do desire first to see how you agree together in love they are not joined 
to our body ; and the Lord of his mercy grant that there may be no occasion 
on your parts but they may join with you. Mr. Dummer's promise is also 
to join with you if there be any reason for it. The Lord unite you all 
together ; then shall you put to sliame and silence many that do now shame- 
fully rise up against us. 

Thomas Jupe hath also sent you a pledge of his own coming in due time, — 
his eldest son, upon liis last £20 in goods and moneys dispersed for the 
Company's use. There is also Nathaniel Harrese which we have sent you 
upon a new adventure of £10 by his father, who is now a Sargeant of the 
Roale and a member of the Company. There is also John Smyth, son of 
Francis Smyth, miller, upon a new adventure of £10 by one John Asten, 
millman ; and there is Nathaniel Merreman upon the adventure of Petter 
Wouster, being now made up to £10 ; all which being members of the Company 
according to their years and abilities, we desire you to receive them and employ 
them. Two of them are very able to work and we hope you will find them 
willing. We desire that they should be put to it according to their abilities, 
and the other two also according to their strength we desire they should be 


employed. There is also Ann Smith, our brother John Smith's wife and her 
daughter ; she, being encouraged by Mr. Dummer*8 promise to g^ve her her 
passage in part, hath resolved to go unto her husband, whom we cannot deny, 
and have put her upon the old adventure of Mr. Dummer for herself and her 

All these are coming in the Whale with Mr. Dummer; they are all 
furnished with bedding and apparel very sufficiently, and, being all able to 
labour, we hope will be helpful to the Company. There is also one Thomas 
Payne of Sandwige, experienced in the making of salt, which hath brought 
in £10 and is coming in the William and Francis whom we desire you to 
receive as a member of our com[)any; only, in regard that ho hath a wife 
and four small children, which he desireth to be transported 12 months hence, — 
we have only conditionally received him, — that if between this and that time 
you do find that he will not be a more help unto the Company than his charge 
will be hinderance, and if he cannot bring in £20 for his wife and children, 
that then, he having worked one year for his passage the Company shall 
give him back his £10 again and so let him shift for himself. 

Some provision for these we have sent you ; what provision you also want 
wo desire you to take of Mr. Dummer and send us over your commodities, 
that we may pay both for that and some old debts which we have made 
hard shift for unto this time. Pray neglect not but by what messenger 
soever Mr. Thomas, master of the William and Francis doth send over 
his letters to have his freight paid let us by the same messenger if not 
before receive some goods from you, for we wore constrained to make use 
of the tonnage money of 20 passengers to pay old debts, until a certificate 
be sent over. 

The goods you shall receive in the William and Francis that is the 
Company's is — 

£ 8. d. 
4 hogsheads pease, which cost, cask and all ... 6 6 

The cask is marked with two plows marked on one 
head, whereas all other goods have one plow on 
each head. 
And 12 yards of broadcloth at Ss. 6d. comes unto ... 3 6 
200 yards of list at 78. 6d. per 100 (which list we 
thought it may be good to make Indian Breeches 
or blankets of; I pray send word if it be a com- 
modity worth sending more of) ... ... 15 

1 fries coat, 1 pr. breeches ... ... ... 19 

These goods are packed up into hogsheads amongrat some of Mr. Bachiller's 
goods and some things of Thomas Jupo which he hath pent upon his particular 
adventure; so soon as you can sell them there is to the value of £10 ad 
mone (sic) as you will see by his particular letters. Mr. Harding hath sent 
also a parcel of commodities upon his particular, as by his letter you shall 
receive directions. 

We have sent you notice by Mr. Allerton, and we hope you have long 
since received it, that we have had much to do about our patent ; and that 
there was one Bradshaw that had procured letters patent for a part (as we 
supposed) of our former grant: and so we think still, but ho and Sir 
Ferdinando think it is not in our bounds. He was frustrate of his first 
purpose of coming over, but is now joined with two very able captains and 
merchants, who will set him over, and we suppose will be there as soon as 
this ship if not before. We cannot possibly relate the labour and trouble 
we have had to establish our former grant ; many rough words we have 
had from Sir Ferdinando at the first and to this hour he doth affirm that 
he never gave consent that you should have above 40 miles in length and 
20 in breadth and saith that his own hand is not to your patent, if it have 
any more. So we have shown our good wills and have procured his love 
and many promises that we shall have no wrong. We bestowed a sugar- 
loaf upon him of some 16 shillings' price, and he hath promised to do us 
all the good he oan. We can procure nothing under his hand, bat in onr 


hcariDg he gave order unto Mr. Ayres to write anto Captain Neale of 
Pascatowaj, that Bradshaw and we might be bounded, that we may not 
trouble each other; and hath g^ven the Captain command to search your 
patent ; what it is you have under my Lord's hand and his. This controversy 
must be ended between yourselves and such governors of their Pemaquid as 
they have appointed. 

We have given Sir Ferdinando this reason why we desired so large a 
patent, — because that the greatest part of it was not habitable, being rock, 
where no man could live ; and he answered that we should doubt not but 
he allowed enough for us all, and in the best part of it, according to our 
desire ; but if we should have as much as we say they have gpranted, then 
do we include divers of their former plantations, which they never intended. 
We shall pray to God to direct you and to help you; this business doth 
require the assistance of all of you to join together in one ; we hope the 
Lord in mercy will so dispose of it. 

£ 8. d. 
We have sent in the Whale — 

70 stone of ocum at lOd. and the cartage ... 2 19 8 

3 cwt. of cassel, all charges is ... ... 1 14 

1 firkin of flour of 5 pecks and a firkin of pease 14 

There is also a poor Yorkshire man ; — ^his name is John Banester, — he hath 
made such extraordinary moan to come over that Mr. Bachiler and Mr. 
Dummer have had compassion upon him and paid for his passage. If you 
think that you will be able to receive him, and do so for the good of it, 
we do then desire you to let him bo the Company's servant, and put him 
to such employment as you think good, and upon such conditions as you 
think fit. 

Goodman Tamadge and his wife take it very unkindly that you should 
keep bis malt and not let his son have a small quantity of plateware at 
his request, 'to be paid at return. How you will answer this unkindness 
we know not ; wo do desire you to give no occasions for such unkindness. 
Here is now the people themselves come unto you we assure you they 
be very honest pluin downright-dealing people ; if they find you loving and 
kind and upright towards them, then will you have their company, — if not 
I pray consider you will not only lose them, but wonderful discouragement 
it will be to others for time to come. 

It may be upon first view you may suppose them to bo a charge, in 

regard the men look aged and the children young but 

and by the next ship you will receive our account for the 

whole year ; and so the Lord protect you and defend you for ever and 

Your loving brethren,

The Massachusetts Colony Court had already (October 18th, 
1631), ordered that "there should be taken out of the estate of 
Mr. Crispe and his Company the sum of XI 2 Is. 5d., and 
delivered to John Kirman as his proper goods, and that the 
whole estate be inventoried, whereof the said John Kirman is to 
have an eighth part." On the arrival of Dummer and Bachiler, 
the Court further directed (June 5th, 1632) "That the goods of 
the Company of Husbandmen shall be inventoiied by the Beadle, 
and preserved for the use and benefit of the said Company." 
We may imagine from this that Crispe, Bryan Binckes, Peter 
Johnson, with the other one or two of the original emigrants of 
The Plough ship had held together in Boston until Dummer and 


Bachiler came over. But now the whole matter was discussed, 
the assets of the Company turned over to the Courts, and Crispe 
probably started back for England to acquaint the London members 
with the failure of the Colony. On July 3rd, 1632, three 
orders were entered by the Court — first, that John Smith (the 
younger, son of Francis) be apprenticed to Rev. John Wilson ; 
second, that Bryan Binckes and Peter Johnson should bind them- 
selves in £10 that they should not depart out of Massachusetts 
without leave from the Governor (Winthrop), and should be ready 
to attend upon the Coui-t when called, to account for the 
Company's goods in their hands ; third, that John Smith should 
likewise be bound in £10 to be accountable for the Company's 
goods remaining in his hands. 

Dummer and Carman settled in Roxbury, under Rev. John 
Eliot. Bachiler and his little flock established themselves in 
Lynn ; Binckes and Johnson went to Virginia ; and the next record 
of the Company appears from the following letter, apparently 
signed by all the London members and sent as soon as Crispe 
had reported the condition of affairs : — 

London, Dec. 1, 1632. 

Grace, mercy and peace bo mnltiplied. 


Whereas there has come over from New England of late divers reports of the 
harsh dealing of Master Dummer against onr loving brethren, Bryan Binckes, 
Fetter Johnson and John Smyth, in that he hath not only taken from them 
that which was left them for their maintenance, by the Company, but also 
retained that which we sent; and do keep in their hands all that there is 
left of the Company's and retain it, contrary to that order that we sent over 
by Master Allerton. And whereas we have received, the day before the 
writing hereof one letter from John Smyth which doth for the main part 
justify that which we have heard, and also another from Master Bachiller 
not denying the same; and having received encouragement by divers that 
there is justice to be had, we therefore appeal to you for justice. 

There is other letters also sent in this ship, which were written three 
weeks before this, wherein we did by all the power that we have command 
them to deliver our goods back again to be disposed according to tlie order 
of the Company. But being now certified that Bryan Binckes and Fetter 
Johnson are gone to Virginia according to the Company's order, we desire 
you that whatsoever there is left of the Company's estate should be there 
sold and returned into England either in bills of exchange or in merchantable 
notes, unto John Dye, dwelling in Fillpot Lane, or unto John Roach, Grace 
Harding or Thomas Juppe, dwelling in Crooked Lane. 

These things that are there of the Company's to our knowledge are these, — 

First, there is the ordnance with their carriages, four £ s. d. 

cables and anchors, — which stand us here in England 

little less than ... ... ... ... 160 

There is also a parcel of ... . izion sent by Mr. 

A parcel of pease ... 

And a parcel of broadcloth and a coat and list 
And a parcel of platewares, of Thomas Juppe's own 

particular adventure 
And a parcel of Master Harding's goods ... 
There was also a parcel of the Company's goods 

Yetaoed by one Muxze ... ... ... 10 










There is much other goods there of the Company's which we oannot gire 
yon notice of. We desire yon to call John Smyth to account. By his own 
letter he hath £20 worth of the Company's estate which, although we desire 
not that it should be presently taken from him, because we pity his poor 
estate, yet we refer it unto your wise consideration to order it to be disposed 
towards the payment of Master Bachiller if you see fit, unto whom we do 
owe £60; it was something more, but the rest we have laid out for him in 
his freight to the value of £7. We therefore desire that he should be paid 

There is goods also to the value of £40, as we are informed, that Master 
Dummer hath taken from Brvan Binckes and Fetter Johnson. There is also 
the old ship and divers debts owing us which we desire you to call John 
Smyth to account for. And for as much as there is owing £200 by the 
Company in London upon bond upon our security, and is yearly a great 
burden unto us, we desire you therefore that our goods may not longer be 
there retained ; for the debts due upon bond the Company's goods must pay ; 
although we lose all, let them not diuhonour God and disgrace religion. 

There hath been a great deal of comi)laint and much evil surmizing about 
the dealing of our brethren departed to Virginia; but we wish we may have 
no worse from thence; wo have fair account and good reason for what they 
did ; and for profit or loss, God's will be done. We hope that that part of 
the estate carried away to Virginia will be as well improved for all the 
company, according to their proportion as they will improve their own that 
do so surmize of their brethren; time will try all things. 

We desire you further to take notice that when Master Bachiller doubled 
his adventure and made it £100 it was upon condition that we and Master 
Dummer should do likewise; we did double our adventure, yet after some 
further consideration, Mr. Dummer sent his money into the hands of a friend 
that would not deliver it to us without bond to pay it again. Now, Mr. 
Dummer promising as well as we to double his adventure and to have a part 
of the loss (if it so fall out) as this enclosed letter will testify, being the 
letter of his own hand, sent with the money, we desire to refer ourselves to 
you there to judge what is lit for him to have. If to venture it as we are 
constrained to do, then at the end of the term of years we shall be accountable ; 
at the least we think he should bear a part of the loss as well as we. We 
hope you will be pleased to take this pains for us to put an end to this con- 
troversy that is a greater grief unto us than all those other crosses that 
have befallen us. 

There was in all £1,400 of joint stock ; of this but the value of £250 carried 
to Virginia, according to your prising when you paid Carman. We leave all 
to your Christian wisdom ; the Lord direct you. And so we rest : 

Your Christian friends, for ourselves and the rest of the 

Company of Husbandmen,

The " Harsh dealing of Master Dummer " here referred to probably 
means that he had, to secure the investment of himself and Bachiler, 
seized on the patent and what assets the Company had. No Court 
proceeding appears to have followed the receipt of this letter, but 
probably Winthrop's justice and wisdom arranged an equitable 
division of the property. 

Bachiler had, in the fall of 1G32, come under the displeasure 
of the Court for some heresies of doctrine. He soon found the 
Massachusetts Puritans were as rigid in their tenets of religion 


as the English Church, and they ordered that he " forbear exercising 
his gifts as a pastor" temporarily. Early in 1633 this prohibition 
was removed and on June 3rd of that year we find him writing to 
Winthrop as follows to protest against an unjust seizure of part 
of the Company's goods. 


The Wisdom of God's spirit direct and g^de yoa in all your affairs, now 
and forever. Amen. 

Right Worshipful and mt Loving Friend, Mr. Governor: 

I have sent jou this enclosed letter from our Company at London to that 
part of our Company which was then supposed to 1)0 here the last year, to 
certify to you that the four hogsheads of pease (which are assigned to my 
brother Wilson in the right of the youth that is with him) do no way belong 
to him, but to me and the rest of our Company, — and, to speak the truth, 
to me only and properly, by reason of the Company's debt to me which 
all that I have (by your favour) seized on will not countervayle my debt 
by a great deal, in case I could sell the goods presently, which I know not 
how long they will lie and (be) worse and worse before they may be any 
satisfaction to me. 

The goods which are looked after for the boy came not in the ship wherein 
these pease came, but, as I take it, in the Whale, if any were sent. Beside 
these pease, coming with my goods in the William and Fraitcis (the ship 
wherein I cume) were the 12 yards of cloth mentioned in the letter, and 
200 yards of list, etc. I paid both for the tonnage of them to the shipmaster 
and for the carrying of them from the ship to New Town ; the cloth also 
and the list, I took into my keeping and wear of it. And, wrapping up 
the letter with many others, forgot to seize upon the pease till within these 
8 or 9 days, when, reading over the letter for some cause or other occasion, 
I lit upon that passage which mentioneth the pease and the cloth of list, 
etc., whereupon I demanded of my wife, " What became of these pease men- 
tioned ? " She answered, — " Certainly they are the pease which lie unowned 
at New Town," whereupon I sent to compare the marks of the letter with 
the marks upon the pease hogsheads, and found them perfectly to agree; 
and there understood that the pease, for want of an owner, were, by your 
authority, committed to my brother to be disposed of in right of his 
servant; and that this day, being the third of this fourth month, my 
brother sent me this message, that, forasmuch as these pease were assigned 
to him by the authority of your Worship and the Court — though he saw the 
contents of this letter — he would sell them and stand answerable for the 
money that they yield. 

My request is therefore unto you that, forasmuch as the pease do clearly 
appear to be no goods of the boy's, but to belong to our Company and that 
I lay claim to them as to the rest, not in respect of my adventure, but for 
the debt of near an hundred pounds which I lent the Company in as good 
gold as can be weighed with scales; and that I paid both for the tonnage 
and freightage of them; and only through forgetfulness left them thus long; 
and divers other considerations of reason which I forbear for tediousness to 
urge ; that you would be pleased to prevent the withholding of them from 
the right owners, — at least to stay the sale of them, forasmuch as I have 
even disposed of part of them and the residue are exceedingly wanting in 
mine own congregation, who, upon the understanding of the business thus 
coming to light, have been earnest with me for them, and I have accordingly 
granted their requests. 

There being equity in all that I require, as I trust will appear upon the 
sight of that passage in the letter, I trust I shall not doubt of your uprightness 
toward me, and between my brother and me, whose care for his servant I 
do maoh approve, though I cannot see the means which he nseth to recover 


his senrant's doubtful goods to be so right as I conld wish. For mj part, 
were it my case, as it is his, I shoald easily 3rield upon the sight of such 
eyidence as I conceive doth appear, that the goods can no way belong to 

One thing more ; whereas I understand that you put apart the last day 
of this week for inquiry of God to discover a great and difficult secret, we 
will, by God's grace, assist you upon that day in like manner. And thus, 
with my loving 8cr\'ice and Christian respect unto you; with mine and my 
wife's hearty salutations to your blessed and beloved yoke-feUow, I cease any 
further to trouble you, and rest at your service and commandment in Christ, 
His most unworthy servant, 

Stephen Bachilbb. 

Sir, — I understand since the writing of my letter that it is conceived that 
the goods of the boy came wholly or in part to mc, — which if it may but 
probably appear, I will make 7 fold satisfaction ; verily it is not so. Neither did 
I (but my wife) meddle with mine own goods ; and my wife saith from Mrs. 
Smyth of Watertown that the boy's father and an uncle of his or some such 
friend, did venture £10 into the Company with the boy. So that I cannot 
conceive how any such goods should be ex .... d ; but for my part I claime 
them and these goods belonging to our Company. 

No further mention of the Plough Company appears on the 
Massachusetts Court Records, except that on April 7th, 1635, 
Captain Traske was ordered " to pay to John Kerman out of 
the estate of the Company of Husbandmen the sum of X24 1 Is. 5d., 
being the remainder of the eighth part given by the Court to 
Kerman," it being noted that if the total assets of the Company 
failed to equal JL'250, Kerman was to make restitution. 

Dummer took an active part in the affairs of the Massachusetts 
Colony. He was an adherent of Sir Henry Vane, and in 1636 
was "disarmed" for his espousal of the Antinomian ideas of Anne 
Hutchinson, and moved to Newbury. All this time Dummer 
seems to have held the Plough Patent, but in 1638, when he 
returned to England to bring to America his brother, nephew 
and niece, he took the patent with him, and, we presume, 
delivered it to the remaining members of the Company. In a 
petition to the Massachusetts General Court in 1683, Jeremy 
Dummer stated that " his father, Richard Dummer, was wholly 
intrusted with the Plough Patent and the management of sundry 
concerns relating to the same, by virtue of a power derived from 
the patentees; and thereafter (in 1638) the said Patent being 
ordered home for England, the patentees granted him 800 acres 
and more, laid out at Casco Bay." 

Between 1632 and 1638 the terms of the Plough Patent were 
discovered by George Cleeve, an ambitious man who early settled 
on Casco Bay. He found that the original patentees had abandoned 
the colony, and thereupon induced them to sell their grant. The 
Commonwealth party was then dominant in England, and Gorges 
was in disfavor. A Puritan Commander, Alexander Rigby, pur- 
chased the Patent, and in 1643 appointed Cleeve as his Deputy- 
Lieutenant of the Province of Lygonia. 

This transaction is thus described in the Abstract of Title 
above referred to as drawn up by Turfrey : — " John Dye and 


John Smyth, Thomas Jupe and others, survivors of Bryan Binckes 
and others their associates, do on the 7 of April, 1643, grant 
unto Alexander Rigby of Rigby in Jjancashire, the said Province 
of ligonia, etc. The said Alexander Rigby makes several leases 
and grants of several parcels of land within the said Province 
of Ligonia ; and expends valuable sums of money ; and draws up 
constitutions which were on the 30 of July, 1644, confirmed by 
the Earl of Warwick and others, by which Alexander Rigby and 
his heirs and assigns are appointed Presidents of the Province 
of Ligonia.'' 

Cleeve attempted to enforce these claims upon the Casco settlers 
and to attach Bachiler and Dummer to his cause by asking the 
former to become pastor of the settlement on Casco Bay ; but he 
met with determined opposition from the Massachusetts authorities, 
who desired control of the whole Province of Maine. The case was 
appealed to England, and the result appears thus in Turfrey's 
Abstract: — "There arising some difference as to bounds between 
Alexander Rigby and John Gorges, son and heir of Sir Ferdinando 
Gorges, the same was heard by the Earl of Warwick and the then 
Commissioner for settling affairs of foreign plantations, and they 
did, by deed in writing, 27 March 1646, adjudge that the title 
of the Province of Ligonia was in the said Rigby and his heirs 
and all the inhabitants were commanded to submit to the govern- 
ment and jurisdiction of the said Rigby." 

Continued opposition was made, and resulted in much litigation, 
until the whole Province of Maine was granted to Massachusetts 
in 1686. This finally wiped out the Plough Patent, which dis- 
appears from view. Ill success seems to have been the fate of 
most of the companies formed for colonizing New England. Chalmers 
and Egerton, in their Histories of British Colonies dwell at some 
length on this fact. Gorges' and Mason's colonies likewise faUed, 
so that the luckless Plough Colony had abundance of company in 
its misfortunes. 

Having thus recited the history of the Patent, let us turn to 
the individual members and colonists of the Company and trace what 
little is known of them. 

We left BachUer in Lynn, where he set up a church for himself 
and the few adherents who had followed him to the New World. 
Here he found his daughter Theodate and her husband, Christopher 
Hussey, who had come to America in 1631. After four years of 
conflict with the Bay authorities, Bachiler moved to Ipswich and 
then to Newbury, having "laid down the ministry." At Newbury 
were his kinsmen Dummer and Hussey, and others from Bachiler's 
part of England ; and after two years this stout old Dissenter, at 
the age of 80 conceived the idea of starting a plantation of his 
own a day's march further north. Accordingly, in 1638-9, the 
plantation was begun, and in 1639, at Bachiler's request and in 
honour of the English city of Southampton, it was called Hampton. 
Among the new settlers were many Suffolk men, and one of these, 
Timothy Dal ton,- A.M. of St. John's College, Cambridge, was 
chosen as Bachiler's assistant. Open conflict resulted between these 



two men, both able and obstinate. The culmination of the whole 
matter was a charge of immorality made, in 1641, against Bachiler. 
This charge — so difficult to disprove, so easily made— was probably 
without real foundation, but it resulted in Bachiler's excommuni<iation. 
He was opposed to the existing authorities, was a man of great 
ability and iron will, outspoken and passionate ; they feared him, 
and wreaked their vengeance on him. Immediately he was urged 
by two other parishes to become their pastor, but he refused to 
go until, by public trial, he was vindicated. Writing to Governor 
Winthrop late in 1643, he said : 

^'I see not how I can depart hence" (that is from Hampton, to accept 
one of the calls he had received, to Casco and to Exeter), " till I have, 
or God for me, cleared and vindicated the cause and wrongs I have suffered 
of the church I yet live in; that is, from the Teacher, who hath done all 
and been the cause of all the dishonor that hath accrued to God, shame 
to myself, and grief to all God's people, by his irregular prooeedings and 
abuse of the power of the church in his hand, — by the major part cleaving 
to him, being his countrymen and acquaintance in old England. My caoae, 
though looked slightly into by diverse Elders and brethren, could never 
come to a judicial searching forth of things, and an impartial trial of his 
allegations and my defence ; which, if yet they might, I am confident 
before God, upon certain knowledge and due proof before yourselves the 
Teacher's act of his excommunicating me (such as I am, to say no 'more 
of myself), would prove the foulest matter, — both for the cause alleg^ of 
that excommunication, and the im])ulBive cause, — even wrath and revenge. 
Also, the manner of all his proceeding throughout, to the very end, and 
lastly his keeping me still under bonds, — and much worse than here I may 
mention for divers causes, — than ever was committed against any member 
of a church. Neglecting of the complaints of the afflicted in such a State, — 
wherein Magistrates, Elders, and brethren all are in the sincerest manner 
set to find out sin, and search into the complaints of the poor, — not knowing 
father, nor mother, church nor Elder, — in such a State, I say, — in such a 
wine-cellar to find sach a cockatrice, and not to kill him, — to have such 
monstrous proceedings passed over, without due justice, — this again stirs 
up my spirit to seek for a writ ad melius inquirendum. Towards which 
the enclosed letter tendoth, as you may perceive. Yet if your wisdoms 
shall judge it more safe and reasonable to refer all my wrongs (conceived) 
to God's own judgment, I can submit myself to be overruled by you. To 
conclude, — if the Apostle's words be objected, that this is thanksworthy if 
a man for conscience' sake shall endure grief, suffering wrongfully, — and 
therefore I ought to endure, without seeking any redress or justice against 
the offender, — I profess it was more absolutely necessary so to suffer, when 
the Church had no civil power to seek unto, than in such a land of 
righteousness as our New England is." 

This public hearing was denied him, and though his excommuni- 
cation was soon withdrawn, he left Hampton, broken down with 
the weight of his persecutions. As an evidence of the respect in 
which he was held, he was just before this chosen referee in a 
dispute between Ti*elawney and Cleeve as to boundaries in Maine. 
The Rev. Robert Jordan, writing to an English friend about the 
trial, says : — " Mr. Stephen Bachiler was, I must say, a grave, 
reverend and a good man ; but whether more inclined to justice or 
mercy, or whether carried aside by secret insinuations, T must 
refer to your own judgment. Sui-e I am that Cleeve is well nigh 
able to disable the wisest brain." Considering that this letter, 
written July 31st, 1642, is that of the defeated party, and that 
Jordan was well placed to know what his real character was, a 


year after the slanders against him, there could be few testimonials 
more convincing. 

Bachiler settled in Portsmouth and contracted an unfortunate third 
marriage, at the age of 86, with a woman of 40. He soon discovered 
the character of this adventuress, and prayed for a divorce, which 
the Massachusetts authorities with great injustice denied. 

After twenty years of life in New England, Bachiler found 
himself, at the age of 90, poor and dishonored. His effort to 
seek peace in America from the pei'secutions of the Bishops had 
brought him renewed conflict with a bitter and bigoted sect. 
His house, library and goods, had been destroyed by fire. The 
Plough Company, from which he had hoped so much, failed and 
cost him a large sum of money. He was linked to a woman 
whose immorality had been proved in Court, but from whom he 
could not obtain a divorce. He determined to return to England 
and end his days there, and left America in 1654 with his 
grandson Stephen Sambome. Tradition says he died at Hackney 
in 1660.

The Genealogist's Guide. By George W. Marshall, LL.D., 
Rouge Croix Pursuivant of Arms. Privately printed for the 
Author by Billing and Sons, Guildford, 1903. 

In his preface to this the latest edition of the Genealogist's 
Guide f the author justly claims that it has been accepted by the 
public as a useful work of reference. He might with truth have 
added that no practical genealogist can afiford to be without it. 
To anyone who desires to compile a family history it is indis- 
pensable that he should know how far others have travelled on 
the same road, and as printed pedigrees are often hidden away 
in the most unlikely tomes, a pioneer of some sort is an absolute 
necessity. It is exactly here that the Genealogist's Guide supplies 


a want which until its first appearance had long been felt. A 
word of caution may not come amiss. There is a danger that 
the student of genealogy may learn to depend too entirely on a 
work of this character, and shirk the task of searching indepen- 
dently for himself the calendars of our great public libraries, 
tiresome and confusing as they too often are. 

By a curious omission the fact that this is the fourth edition 
does not appear either on the title page or in the preface. To 
those who have been in the habit of frequently consulting 
the third edition it is a relief to find that the cumbrous supple- 
ment, nearly as large as the -book itself, has been incorporated 
into the body of the work, a manifest improvement. The 
Guide now contains upwards of 87,000 references to pedigrees, 
which will give an idea of the labour involved in its compilation. 
Dr. Marshall adheres to his rule of including all books dealing 
with pedigrees which have three generations in the male line, 
good, bad, or indifferent, making no attempt to point out which 
are worthy of attention and which are the reverse. This is as 
it should be, for after a very short experience the student learns 
to appraise at its true value a work which treats of a family 
in which he is himself interested. 

The list of printed Parish Registers has been omitted from 
this edition, having been separately printed by the Parish Register 

It is a matter of some satisfaction to us to observe that nearly 
every one of the 871 pages of this most useful Guide contains 
a reference, and often many references, to The Oenealogisi.

Lincoln's Inn, Barrister-at-Law. London (Elliot Stock). 

Ireland is not fruitful in records, and certainly County Qalway 
is not the most likely spot in that " disti*essful " country from 
which to expect a treasure trove such as that which has here 
been carefully calendared. All the more welcome to antiquaries 
therefore will be this valuable and hitherto little known collection, 
and it is to be hoped that advantage will be taken of the 
owner's generous offer to allow the whole of the documents to 
be printed in ext^nso by the Irish Historical MSS. ('ommission. 
In the meantime he has done wisely to calendar them and thus 
call attention to their interest and importance. The whole collection, 
which has always been preserved in the same family, ranges over 
six centuries, the present series dealing only with the earlier 
portion. It consists of documents of a varied character — grants 
of land, mortgages, marriage dispensations and marriage settlements, 
wills, awards of arbitration and some ecclesiastical mandates and 
appointments to benefices. Attention is drawn in the preface to 
the fact that we have liere several probates of wills granted by 
the Court of the Archdiocese of TuAm much earlier in date than 
those to be found in the Irish Public Record Office. The 


dispensations are often curious, and are a peculiar feature of 
Irish records. Mr. Blake has added explanatory and historical 
notes, and at the end some Blake pedigrees reprinted, with 
additions and corrections, from Burke, These include the lineage 
of the Lords Wallscourt and the baronets of the name The 
volume is illustrated with photographs of the more important 
documents contained in the calendar. No index has been provided. 

The First Register Book of the Parish of Old Buckenham 
IN Norfolk, 1560 to 1649. Transcribed, Edited and Indexed 
by Walter Rye. Norwich (Agas H. Goose). 

Mr. Rye's account of the condition in which he found this record 
is truly deplorable. He tells us that quite a third of the paper 
has rotted away from exposure to damp, and that a great part of 
the writing is perfectly illegible. It is not the least of Mr. Rye's 
many services to genealogy that he should have preserved to future 
generations what remains of this register book, and have run the 
probable risk of pecuniary loss in so doing We know not if 
episcopal transcripts are in existence for this parish, and if so whetlier 
they have been consulted, but it is hardly likely that so obvious a 
means of solving difficulties in deciphering the register should have 
been neglected by so experienced a genealogist as Mr. Rye. During 
the period in question several gentle families had their habitation in 
Old Buckenham, notably the Kny vetts and Prestons ; and in addition 
to these, among the names to which " gent.," " clerk " or " Mr." are 
attached we find Bentley, Brewster, Bunne, Downes, Harrison, 
Jolly, Pope and Wright. There are at least two omissions from 
the index — Agas on p. 73, and Ingram on p. 29. Under the heading 
"1631 (?)," occurs the following entry, "Jacob . . . gent., buried 
9 March." This probably relates to Jacob Preston, who is stated 
in the Preston pedigree in Bv/rke to have died in 1630, and to 
have been buried at Old Buckenham. 

The Book of Matriculations and Degrees : A Catalogue of 
those who have been matriculated or admitted to any 
Degree in the University of Cambridge from 1851 to 
1900. Cambridge : at the University Press, 1902. 

The first official calendar of the University of Cambridge was 
published in 1787, and recorded all degrees conferred to that date 
from the year 1659. Successive registraries have continued the 
list of graduates to 1884, when the late learned Dr. Luard, whose 
kindness and accessibility are still gratefully remembered by many, 
issued his GraducUi Ccmtahrigienses, The present volume partly 
overlaps Dr. Luard's calendar, for it ranges from 1851 to 1900, but 
it is far more comprehensive, as it contains not only graduates, 
but also all persons who have matriculated at the University 
during the past half century. Another change for the better has 
been made in printing the names in English instead of Latin, a 
concession which has almost become a necessity since surnames are 
now so frequently given at baptism. The calendar has been edited 
by the Rev. J. F. £. Faning, M.A., under the superintendence of the 


present learned registrary, Mr. John Willis Clark. Genealogists 
must continue to regret that there is still no printed record of the 
admissions to all the Colleges at Cambridge, giving the parentage 
of the scholars, as does Mr. Joseph Foster's monumental Alumni 

The Dightons op Clifford Chambers, and their Descexdaxts. 
By Conway Dighton. London (Elliot Stock). 

There is much to interest the reader in this little book, especially 
that part of it which relates to the career of (Richard) Henry 
Dighton in India during a momentous period in the history of that 
country. The genealogical particulars are, however, given in a 
somewhat confusing manner, and would have l)een greatly elucidated 
by a tabular p)edigree. At the end of the work there are some 
extracts relating to the name of Dighton from the Parish Register 
of Clifford Chambers, and a pedigree of the closely allied family 
of Dormer of Ascott and Rousham, the latter place being, by the 
way, spelt throughout Ro:»isham. The illustrations include views 
of the old family mansion at Clifford Chambers, and portraits of 
members of the family. One of the latter represents Lieut. -Gen. 
John Dighton, E.I.C.S., 1761-1840, an officer of some distinction, 
and father of (Richard) Henry Dighton, to whom reference has 
been made above.

Sir Richard Fry, Knt. (ante p. 214). — The facts of this enquiry 
are as follow. There certainly was a Richard Fry who married 
Joan Beaufort. His will was proved in the Prerogative Court of 
Canterbury (Holgrave, 18). It is dated 21 June 1504; he desires 
to be buried in the cemetery of the Friars Minors at Stanford (sic) ; 
he gives all his property moveable and immoveable (but no mention 
of what or where) to " Dfia Johanna * uxor mea,' " whom he appoints 
his executrix in conjunction with Robert Beckenfalbe and James 
Ajors "cognatum meum." The will was proved by said Johanna, 
relict and executrix, on 19 Oct. 1504. No title such as Sir or 
Knight is mentioned, nor any children. 

So far as I have been able to investigate the matter there is 


nothing whatever to connect this Richard Fry with any particular 
family, whether of Devon or elsewhere, and what he had to do 
with the Friars Minors of " Stanford " is unknown. Stamford in co. 
Lincoln is probably intended, as this place had a cell of the Friars 

Richard Fry is further mentioned in the Rolls of Parliament, 
vol. vi, p. 454, in a Bill dated 7 Henry VII (U91-2), to give 
Thomas Lovel the guardianship of Edmund, son of Thomas, late 
Lord Roos, which said Thomas had been attainted, 1 Edw. IV, 
and his estates forfeited. At the end of this Bill is a saving 
clause to various persons, among them to " Richard Frye, squier, 
and Jane his wife another daughter of said Duchess " [of Somerset]. 

Sir Richard Fry has been a puzzle for many years, for as far 
back as 1859 a gentleman in Notes and Queries (2nd series, vii, 
p. 129) asked for information concerning him, but unsuccessfully. 
After quoting the Parliamentary Roll above mentioned, he states 
that his name occurs as a guest at Thorn bury Castle, Gloucestershire, 
during the feast of the Epiphany, 23 Henry VII (6 Jan. 1508), a 
description of which is given in Archfp^lof/ia, xxv, p. 323, under 
the article "Household Expenses of Edward Staflford, Duke of 
Buckingham." We do indeed find a Richard Frye mentioned there, 
with three servants, but it can hardly be the same as the one now 
under discussion, since the date of these festivities is 1508, or some 
four years after the death of our Richard Fry. 

Further references I have come across are as follow. In the 
Calendar of Letters and Papers, Foreign and Domestic, of the 
reign of Henry VIII, vol. i, p. 47, grant 347, there is a grant, 
27 July 1509, to Joan Lady Howethe, widow of Richard Frye, 
daughter of Eleanor, late Duchess of Somerset, of cei*tain lands in 
Worcestershire and elsewhere. And in vol. iii of same series, part i, 
p. 15, there is a grant. No. 55, in Jan. 1519 to Sir William Tyler 
of these same Worcestershire lands lately held by Joan, Lady 
Howeth, deceased (died 1 1 Aug. 1518), wife of John {sic) Frye. 

Mention of our Richard Fry is also to be found in " Letters 
and Papers, Richard III to Henry VII " (Roll Series, vol. xxiv), 
vol. ii, p. 87, at a meeting at Calais in 1500 between Henry VII 
and the Archduke Philip of Austria (afterwards Philip I ** le beau," 
King of Spain), where, ()uoting Harleian MSS. 1757, fo. 361, it 
says, "Hereafter ensueth the names of such Lords, Knights and 
other gentyls being about the King at his meeting with the Arch- 
duke of Austrige," and among the " Squyers for the body " will 
be found Richard Frie. 

In Nichols* " Collectanea Topographica and Genealogica " are 
printed some tables of pe<ligrees shewing relationship between many 
of the nobility and gentrv and the Blood Royal, compiled about 
the year 1500 (Harl. MSS. 1074, fo. 286), and in table xi will be 
found "Jane (daughter of Edmund, Duke of Somerset), first wedded 
to the Lord Howth of Ireland and after to Fry." 

Respecting the Lady Joan Beaufort, she was the second daughter 
of Edmund Beaufort (grandson of John of Gaunt) and Eleanor, 
daughter of Richard Beauchamp, Earl of Warwick. She mariied 


first Robert St. Lawrence, Lord Howth, Lord Chancellor of Ireland 
(1 483-1 486), who died in 1486, and secondly (said to be in 1489) 
Richaixl Fry, and she died 11 Aug. 1518, burial place unknown 
to me. 

Above are the facts of the case, but they do not prove that 
Richard Fry was ancestor (either direct or collateral) of the Frys 
of Yarty. It must be remembered also that the tablet in Membury 
Church was erected as recently as 1742, by directions contained in 
the will of Frances Fry, daughter of the last heir male of this 
branch of the Devonshire Fr}' family, and therefore is by no means 
to be considered as proof of the connection with royalty it seems to 
imply. Possibly such a tradition had been current in the family, 
but as far as I have been able to examine the actual facts there 
is nothing to prove it. 

I shall be as delighted as ^^Yartye" to find further information 
concerning this Richard Fry, and hope additional references will 
be found. Possibly an inspection of documents relating to the 
Friars Minors (or Franciscans) at Stamford might reveal something.

The Early Devkkeux Pedigrep:.— The following occur as witneeses 
to charters in Mr. J. H. Round's Calendar of Documents preserved 
in France : — 

[702] Charter of Richard, Duke of Normandy. AD. ;?) 1026. 
Walteriiis vicecomes, 

[716] Charter of Robert, Count of Mortain, and Almodis his 
wife. A.D. 1087—1091. On the part of the Count, 
Rothertus Gnauferidea. 

[233] Charter of Henry, Count of Eu. A.D. 1107. Guillelmo 
filio Walterii, 

Tlie first of these, Walferius vicecomesy is probably the Walter 
Evrus of the Book of Lacock (Cotton Coll. Brit. Mus. ). 

The second, liotbertuH Gunuteride^, I take to be Robert de 
Ebrois, who was dead in 1 1 30, wlien his son and heir Reginald 
claimed his lands in Cornwall (Pipe Roll, 1130). 

The third, GuiUelvms filius Walteriiy is, 1 suggest, William de 
Kverous (d. in 1110), whose wife, Helewyse, was of kin to 
Walter de Laci. He occurs in Domesday Book (Heref and Glouc). 
R. de Ebrois (whom I suppose to be Richard) occurs also in 
Domesday Book (Noi-f., vol. ii, p. 222, in dorso), as does Roger de 
Ebrois, subtenant of William de JScohies, who held in Herefordshire. 
These 1 consider to be sons of William, the ancestor of the Earls 
of Essex and Viscounts Hereford. The pedigree is given in Blount 
of Orleton's collection of Hereford Families, A.D., 1675.

In the case of forfeited estates one-fifth was reserved for 
the support of the families of the owners. All who had 
been in the personal service of the King and were bound 
to attend him, were fined at the lowest rate, viz., one-tenth. 

An act of pardon was passed on the 24th February 1652, 
which freed from sequestration all estates not sequestered 
before the Ist December 1651. 

An act of 2l8t October 1653 empowered all Recusants to 
contract for two-thirds of their estates, which had been 
forfeited for religious opinions. By this act they were to 
pay four years' value of their estates and one-third of their 

There appears, however, to have been a considerable amount 
of favouritism, and those who had friends on the two Com- 
mittees fared very much better than others. 

On the 28th July 1644, the Committee for the Advance 
of Money assessed Sir Hervey Bagot, of Field and Blithfield, 
at £2,000, but on the 9th June 1648, on proof that his 
estate was only worth £1,745 and his debts were £3,120, his 
assessment was discharged and he paid nothing.^ 

An informer gave the following particulars respecting Mr. 
William Ward, of Himley, co. Stafford, the rich goldsmith, 
who had purchased the wardship of the Dudley heiress from 
James I. He stated that William Ward was the reputed 
owner of Himley, Dudley and other manors in co. Stafford, 
which hiul cost him £30,000 He had lent the King £400 or 
£500, had given £500 to have his son made a Baronet and 
£1,500 to have him made a Peer and Justice of the Peace. 
This last item was probably correct, for the date of the 
Barony of Ward is 1643. The son Humble, Lord Ward, 
was married to the Dudley heiress, and an information was 
laid against him that he had been taken prisoner in 
Dudley Castle when it was surrendered, and his estate 
had been sequestered. 

No further proceedings were taken in these cases and it 
is difficult to resist the conviction that there was favouritism 
or bribery which affected the decisions of both Committees. 

One of the most remarkable cases was that of Walter 
Astley, of Patshull. An information was laid against him 
and his son Richard on the 2nd December 1651, which 
stated that Walter^ was a disaflfected Papist who had made 
his house a garrison for the King in 1644 and 1645, and 
had sent two of his sons with horses, arms and money to 

' Stat« Papers — Committee for Compounding, Record Series, printed. 

^ He had, however, to compound for his estates in 1646 at three years* 
purchase, having sat in the Assembly at Oxford. In 1649 his fine was fixed 
at £1,004 17s. Od. 

' Erroneously called William Astley in the information. 



the King^s army, and that Bichard Astley was a Captain 
in the King's garrison at Dudley in 1643-44-45. On the 
10th April 1655, the County Committee reported that an 
information had been laid in 1651, but no proceedings had 
been taken under it, and as the cause was not depending 
on the 10th February 1654, it was pardoned by the Act of 
Oblivion. Mr. Astley was therefore to be restored to the 
full possession of his estates. 

Henry Grey, the brother-in-law of' Sir Walter Wrottesley, 
likewise escaped sequestration. An information was laid 
against him in July 1650 that he had maintained a garrison 
against Parliament at his house at Enville, and in 1643-44 
was in arms for the King and was at the fight at Stourton 
Castle. Henry Grey's cousin. Lord Grey of Groby, the 
regicide, was one of the Committee for compounding, and 
apparently had stopped all proceedings against his relative. 

There were many other cases where the men who actually 
bore arms against Parliament were treated with more leniency 
than those who maintained a neutral attitude, thus : — In 
1650 an information was laid against Colonel John Lane, of 
Wolverhampton, who had served three years as a Colonel 
for the King and had commanded the King's garrison at 
Stafford, but no proceedings were taken in his case. On 
the other hand his father, Thomas Lane, of Bentley, who 
never bore arms, had to compound for his estates. 

In the same way Hervey Bagot, of Park Hall, co. Warwick, 
a son of Sir Hervey Bagot, who had been in arms for the 
King, escaped sequestration, whilst his father, who never 
bore arms, had to pay a fine of one-third. It is possible, 
however, that in these cases, both Lane and Bagot had 
been serving in garrisons, which had surrendered upon terms. 
Bichard, another son of Sir Hervey Bagot, who commanded 
the garrison at Lichfield, had been killed at Naseby in 1645. 
Another remarkable case was that of Sir Richard Prince, 
Sir Walter's relative, who had married Mary Wrottesley in 
1618, see p. 294. In his petition to compound he stated 
that he had been imprisoned at Shrewsbury when it was a 
garrison for the King, owing to his affection for Parliament, 
that his son and heir was a Colonel in the service of the 
Parliament and had been slain in battle, and that he had 
paid his one-fifth and one-twentieth. Notwithstanding these 
circumstances, he was forced to compound. His composi- 
tion was fixed at one-tenth and amounted to £1,400, but 
on the 16th September 1647 his Fine was reduced to 
£750 on his undertaking to discharge his son's debts. 
On the. 18th December 1650, Rochley (Wrottesley) Prince 
and Susan Prince, two of his children, were allowed one- 
half of some property in Bettisfield, co. Flint, which they 


had purchased in 1644, and which had been sequestered 
with the rest of their father's estate. 

Other interesting cases were those of Dugdale and Ashmole. 
William Dugdale, who is styled Chester Herald, of Shustoke, 
CO. Warwick, had his estate sequestered because he went to 
Oxford and was there at the date of the surrender. He paid 
£168 in 1646, on a composition of one-tenth. In 1650, an 
information was laid against Elias Ashmole, Gentleman. It 
states that he was a Gentleman of the Ordnance for the King 
in 1647, and was a very dangerous person, speaking against 
the Parliament. He had married the widow of Sir Thomas 
Mainwaring, by whom he had £600 a year or more. No 
proceedings appear to have been taken in this instance. 

Summarising the contents of the Composition Papers, it 
appears that the Protestant landowners who actually fought 

for the King were twelve in number, these were : — 

Sir Edward Littleton Lord Ward of Dudley 

Henry Grey of Enville John Lane of Hide^ 

Thomas Broughton Sir Thomas Wolrich, Bart. 

Walter Noel of Hilcot Sir Henry Griffiths of Wichnor 

William Brereton Randolph Egerton, and 

Thomas Pershouse Richard Cresswell, of Perton.* 

The Roman Catholic landowners who took up arms for 
the King were : — 

Walter Astlej'' of Patshull and Sir William Peshall of Can- 
two sons well and two sons 
Francis Biddulph^ Oliver Fitz William of Ipstones 
Thomas Coyney of Weston Thomas Leveson of Wolver- 

Coyney hampton 

Philip Draycote of Painsley Thomas Whitgreave of Moseley 

Walter Fowler of St. Thomas Lord Aston of Tixall and two 

Ralph Sneyd of Keele brothers 

Peter Giffard of Chillington, his Sir Richard Fleetwood of 

eldest son Walter Giffard of Calwich 

Marston, and three younger William FitzHerbert of Swyn- 

sons nerton, and 

Sir Richard Weston* and his son Francis Harcourt of Fanton. 

The landowners who attempted to maintain a neutral attitude 
and whose estates were sequestrated upon various pretences, were: — 

' ThiR is the Colonel Lane who assisted so materially in the escape of 
Charles II. The part his sister Jane Lane took in the King's escape is well 
known. Their father, Thomas Lane of Bentley, was still alive. 

^ In addition to these, Mr. Sleigh in his " History of Leek," mentions William 
TrafiFord of Swithamley as one of those who took up arms for the King. 

* His father, John Biddulph of Biddnlph, died in November 1642, after 
the commencement of the war. 

* Sir Richard Weston was one of the Barons of the Exchequer, and was 
sixty-five years of age in 1642.

There were also some Roman Catholic landowners, who 
from age and other causes, were not in arms for the King, 
and whose estates were sequestrated. These were : — 

Sir Walter Heveningham, of Walter Brook of Lapley 

Aston Viscount Stafford 

John Biddulph of Biddulph Peter Macclesfield of Maer, and 

Thomas Coyney of Weston John Giffard, of Whiteladies. 

The above lists account for fifty-eight out of the ninety-eight 
landowners, who had to find cuirassiers or light horse in 
1634,^ and who may be said to be fairly representative of 
the landed interest in the county. The remaining forty 
must have been active adherents of Parliament. Deducting, 
therefore, the Roman Catholics, who were twenty-three in 
number, we find that of the Protestant landowners, twelve 
served the King actively, twenty were neutral, and forty 
served against him, proportions which will probably astonish 
those readers who derive their impressions of the political 
feeling of the day from current histories. - 

There is little else to record respecting Sir W^alter 
Wrottesley. In 1642, at the commencement of the troubles, 
he placed all his property into trust, with power to the 
trustees to pay his debts and raise portions for his children. 
His trustees were: — Sir Richard Lee, of the Lee, co. 
Salop, Baronet, Edward Littleton, Kt., Humfrey Mack worth, 
Leicester Devereux, John Dyckins, John Byrch and Alexander 
Wightwyke. The property conveyed consisted of the manors
