IN completing the Secood Volume of this Work, Dothiog remains for 
the Author beyond the repetition of his acknowledgments for the 
support he continues daily to receive from every part of the kingdom, 
— support the more acceptable and the more gracious, because coming, 
m many instances, without solicitation — in all, without reserve and 
without distrust. The aid of the ablest and most celebrated writers 
in his own peculiar walk of literature has been freely proffered him ; 
and collections, acquired by vast expense, and vaster labour, have 
been gratuitously opened to his investigation. Thus sustained, 
arduous though the task he has undertaken may appear to be, and 
arduous though it really is, he can have little apprehension now as 
to the result : the difficulties, which at first seemed almost insur- 
mountable, are entirely removed, and the road before him, although 
yet a ru^ed one, presents no impediment which perseverance and 
industry may not be found sufficient to overcome. 

In the first volume, the Author was anxious to name the eminent 
persons to whom he stood so deeply indebted, individually ; but the 
list was even then so eitensive, that he was obliged to abandon the 
intention, and to content himself with a generaP acknowledgment of 
obligation. He is now placed in a similar situation ; nay, the cata- 


logue has become so much enlarged as to preclude the possibility of 
eDumeration. He must not, however, omit particularizing his highly 
gifted and accomplished friend James Roche, Esq. of Cork, to whom 
he is indebted for the most important literary assistance, and the most 
valuable information : nor should he foi^t especially naming that 
able genealogist, Mr. Joseph Morris, of Shrewsbury, who has fur- 
nished materials, admirably digested, for some of the most elaborate 
pedigrees in this volume. In returning thanks to his esteemed cor- 
respondent, Mr. Allan, of Durham, in the Brst volume, that gentleman 
is called William Henry Allan, Esq. instead of Robert Henry Allan, 
Esq. which inaccuracy the Author b^ now to apologize for, and to 

December, 1834.

rect version of the tradition regard- 
ing Littlecott, when possessed by the 
" About aeven or eight miles from the 
Dianaion of an ancient and reipectable 
family in Wiltshire, toward! the close of the 
■ixteenth century, there dwelt a midwife of 
gTPal skill and practice, who one night was 
called up juat as she bad gone to rest, after 
having returned from exercising the duties 
of her profession in another quarter. As 
•oon as she knew the caose of her being 
disturbed, she endcBvoared to eicnse her- 
self, on account of fatigue, and wished to 
■end an assistant whom slie kept in the 
borne. The messenger, however, being 
resolved to gain the principal only for hii 
pnrpoEP, urged that he had something to 
ask of ber, for a person of consequence, 
after which the deputy might do. She ac- 
cordingly came down stairs and opened the 
door, after which she disappeared, and was 
absent for many hours. 

" The deposition she made of what fol- 
lowed before a magistrate, and afterwards 
upon trial, was to the following eSect. — She 
stated that as soon as sbe hui unfastened 
the door, and partly opened it, a hand was 
thrust in, which struck down the candle, 
and at the same instant palled her into the 
road in front of ber house, which was de- 

tached from the village, or any other dwell- 
ing. The person who had used these abrupt 
means, desired her to tie a handkerchief over 
her head, and not wait for a hat, as a lady 
of the firil quality in the neighbourhood waa 
in want of her immediate assittaoce. He 
then led to a stile at a short distance, where 
there was a borse saddled, and with a pil- 
lion on its back ; he desired her to seat 
herself first, and then mounting immediately 
he set off at a brisk trot. After they bad 
travelled about three qnarters of an hour 
she expressed great alarm, but her con- 
ductor assured her that no harm should 
happen to her, and that she should be well 
paid, but added, that they had still further 
to go. He got off his horse several times 
to open gates, and tbey crossed many 
ploughed and com fields, for though it was 
quite dark she could discover that they had 
quilted the high road within two miles of 
her own house ; she also said they crossed 
a river tviet. After they had been about 
an hour and a half on their journey tbey 
entered a paved court or yard, as sbe con- 
clnded from the clatteTiug of the horse's feet 
on the stones. Her guide now lifted her off 
the horse, and conducted her through a long 
dark passage, in which she only saw a 
glimmering of light at a distance, which was 
concealed or put out upon the shotting of a 
large gate through which they passed. As 
soon as they arrived at a sort of laitding 

filace, ber guide addressed ber to the fol- 
owing effect. 'You must now suffer me to 
put this cap and bandage over your eyea, 
which will allow vou to speak and brcMhe, 
but not to see ; keep up your presence of 
mind, it will be wanted, and I again repeat, 
no harm will happen to you.' Then con- 
ducting her into a chamber, he continued, 
■ DOW you are in a room with a lady in 
labour, perform your office well and you 
shall be amply rewarded, but if you attempt 
the bandage from your eyea, take 



she said that horror and dread had so be- 
.mbed ber faculties, that had any assistance 
been wanted she was rendered incapable of 
giving it, but nature had effected all that 
— requisite, and what remained for her to 
ras little more than to receive a male 
infant, and to give it into the hands of a 
female, who bv her voice she conceived to 
woman advanced in years. Her patient 
was sure was a very young lady, but 
she was forbid to ask any questions, or to 
speak a word. As soon as the event was 
completely over, she had a glass of wine 
given her, and was told to prepare to return 
borne by another road, which was not quite 
so near, but free from gales or stiles. She 
begged to be allowed to repose herself for 
a quarter of an hour in the arm chair, whilst 
the horse was getting ready, pleading the

oedii^ day ; Bud under the pretence oi 
■lecptng Bhe nude thoce reflectioM which 
hii dte fonndatioti of that le^l enquiry, 
whieb aflenrarda took place. She, undis- 
ODveicd and nnaiupected, contriTed with 
h«r •cuaon to cut off h •mall bit of the 
cartain. Tbia circiUDitance, added to olben 
«f a local BBtnre, wu (appoted sufficient 
cvujeiice (o Gx the tranuclion on Ibe house 
poiotnl out, and, but for the icrntiny and 
croia-«xaii] nation on the trial, would baie 
preu the law great scope over the lives of 
•ereral pcraons, u H appeared improbable 
that Tewer than five or six persons coold 
have been concerned in a business so regu- 
larly conducted, in the coarse of her evi- 
dea«e Ae midwife affirmed she perceived an 
■ncoauDon smell of bumiag, which fallowed 
ihsBi throBgta all tbe avenues of tbe bouae 
Id the GOnrt-yard, where she remounted the 
horse. Sbe 'said that she remarked to the 
gvide, that sbe saw a light and smelt a smell 
•f bamiog, which he said was the work of 
tte caideBerB, who were firing the weeds 
aB4 Darning ihe moles amODgsI them, as 
ttey always did at that time of year. And 
•be staled, that at (he time of parting from 
Ibe guide, which was within fifty yards of 
Wr own dwelling, be made her swear to 
obaerre secrecy, at tbe same time putting a 
|iBrae into her hand, which she afterwards 
fewMl contained twenly-flve guiness ; and 
IQI Out moment tbe bandage had never been 
reiBaved from her eyes, llie morning was 
then breaking ; she also deposed that she 
comtcd the, steps on the Grsl and second 
bus^Dg-pUcea, which agreed with those of 
tbe anapected honse. and the piece of cnr- 
taia was found to match one exactly in s 
roan where the birth of the child was sup- 
pOMd to bave taken place. With such 
evidence it was expected that nothing short 
ct a convictiou of some of the parties for 
the murder of a new bom infant must have 
Mhnred ; psrticnUrly as a beantifhl young 
Udy in the family (a niece) bad withdrawn 
henelf from ber acquaintance, under the 
plea of going to a convent at Avignon, to 
team French, when she had lieen seen more 
&an once after her declared departure, by 
a frait woman, looking oat of a small win- 
doir next to ber nsnal apartment. In tbe 
coorae of the trial, however, the circnm- 
■taaee of tte cartain was rendered suipi- 

«atioa, that a Ca£olick servant bad left the 
faauly in malice a abort time before, with 
horrid declaratioiia of revenge, on acconut 
ef ber baring been forbidden to attend mass, 
wUeb snggMted a poasibiUty of her sap- 
piyi^ Ae Uct ot ibe cnrtain, as well aa all 
the local deacription gi*en by the midwife 
of Ibe soapeeted manaion. Tbe midwife'a 
siDty, ibo«gb a|q»rently plausible, was 

Plrat, that of ber dlitingnisbing the being 
carried over com and ploughed fleldi, tbougb 
she only knew, it being so extremely darli, 
thst they had qnitted tbe high road from tbe 
sound of the horse's feet. Next, her affirm- 
ing that when introduced into die chamber 
sbe was so benumbed and stupified with 
horror and dread, that in a case of difficulty 
she coold have given no assistance ; yet, 
during this state of horror and dread, she 
could, though blindfolded, swear positively 
that her patient was very young; the child 
a male ; and tbe person to whom it was 
given advanced in years ; and immediately 
afterwards had tbe presence of mind to 
execute the ingenious hot hazardons ex- 
periment of cutting tbe curtain. She also 
•aid, ibat sbe remarked to tbe guide ber 
letiHff a light, ss well as smelling the bnm- 
ing, yet affirmed immediately afterwards, 
that the bandage was not taken from her till 
she was within fifty yards of her own hoase. 
But an apparent coniradiction, and which 
was supposed to have over-tuned her whole 
evidence, was her positively insisting that in 
their way to the bouse, where her assistance 
was wanted, they crossed a ford twiee, when 
it was proved that there was only mie 
ttraight river between Ibe two houses. Now 
Buf posing the guide to bave made a wheel 
round, in order to deceive the midwife, and 
to have again crossed Ibe river, they most 
still have forded it a tkird time to arrive at 
the suspected house. All these circum-

The ^nealogist GEOSGECRiWFiiiiD'g de- 
ductionorthii family rromSwiNE, of Daoisb 
oriein, lolely from that person's holding part 
of tlie barODy ofCrairfurd, is palpably errone- 
ous. Swane baviog been contemporary witli 
GalGriduB, and iriib hii father, DominuH Gal- 
friduadeCrawfurd, in tbe reign ofWiLUAM, 
fAi Lion. It U only stated, however, pro- 
blematically by Cranfurd. Chalmers's en- 
quiriea amongst the records in the Tower 
bad not, when Crawfurd wrote, given the 
right direction to antiquarian research. 
The recent discovery, in an old illuminated 
manuscript at the British Museum, in the 
Cotton collection, of the arms of Stephen, 
third earl of Richmond, who died in 1104, 
and their close similitude to the coat borne 
by the Crawfurds, coupled with other cor- 
roborative circumstBDces, has thrown new 
light upon the subject, and leaves hardly a 
doubt that those old Earls or Richhond, 
and this ancient and widely dispersed Cale- 
donian family sprang from a common pro- 
genitor. The original coat of the earls of 
Kicbmond, as shewn by Gale, in his Acvu- 
fr«Ns Honorum Ritiaiiondia, was ermine ; 
the arms of Britanny, whence thoae earls 
descended. Gale further states, and is 
•upported hy Clahkson, in his History of 
BuJimond, that the family adopted gules, 
the tinotnre of roy^ally, in addition to ermine, 
as a mark of gratituoe to their royal bene- 
factor, William, tkt Cottqueror, under whose

Some of their successors carried leopard*

the colours of the lords of Bedale, sprang 
from Brian, second son of Alan, fourut earl 
of Richmond. The ermine, after gules

Reginald, the youngest son of tbe fourth 
earl of Richmond, and the great-great 
gnndson of Galfridus, duke of Britanny, 
who died in 11M>8, does not appear to hav* 
founded any establishment or family in 
England, but at the period in which he 
lived, we find at the court of King David, 
in Scotland, a person bearing the name of 
Reginald, whom George Crawford deems 
the extreme ancestor of the Crawfurds, and 
who obtained large grants from that prince ; 
whose policy it was, as staled in the intro- 
ductory observations to the Halliday family 
(page 127). to allure the young and no- 
endowed Anglo-Norman knights, to settle 
in his dominions. This Reginald was lather 
or grendfather of the Dominiu Galfridus 
DE Cbawfukd, who freqaentl;r witnesssd 
the charters of William, tht Lion, and ap- 
pears to have received many marks beaidfl 
of royal consideration, demonstrative of 
alliance to the court ; for which Cravrford 
states himself unable to account. If. how- 
ever, Reginald were, as now conjectureii, 
one of the sons of the Earl of Richmond, 
(and of which the concurrent testimony of 
a.variety of facts forms the strongest pre- 
snmptiou), he, Galfridus, would, be closely 
connected wiOi the Lion, his uncle, Comh

Although Ibis family has lost its own 
early records, there are documents in exist- 
ence, cerliGed by its chiefs living in (he reign 
of ittuM Elizabeth and Jahei I. from 
which we are enabled to correct the state- 
ment at page 314, and to complete the 
early descents. 

The Edwardses, of Trefgarne, quite dif- 
ferent in descent from the EdwRrdses of 
Rhydygors, are a branch of the nume 
descenosnls of Tudor Trevor, a powerful 
chieftain, whose residence was on the border 
of North Wales and Shropshire, whence he 
is styled the head of the tribe of the Marches, 
of Wales, Third in direct line from Tudor 
Trevor,wa#CYNRic, or Cvnvbic, thesonof 
Rhiwliilow, which Cynric was lord of Chris- 
tionydd, Cynric, and Maelor Cymraeg, in 
North Wales. Eleventh from Cynric was 
EowARD-ap- John, who resided, not atCbirk 
Caitle, as stated in page 314, but in Chiric- 
land, as a considerable district in Denbigh- 
shire is termed. He married Catherine, 
daughter of levan, or Evan-ap-William, of 
Hold, in Flintshire, and had issue, 

1. John-af-Edward, or ioHN 
WAHDB), who m. Gwenn, daozbter of 
leoan-ap-Grnffydd, of Fenllyn, 
North Wales, and had three daugh- 

2. Richard Edwardes, the first of the 
family who settled in Pembrokeshire, 
He wBS chancellor of St. David's, and 
ajustice of the peace for the county of 
Pembroke, in the year 1597. Ri- 
chard Edwardes married Mirabel, 
daogbter of Henry Evans, by Jane, 
his wife, sister to Sir William Wake, 
but had no issue. 

3. Thomas Edwarpes, ancestor of Mr. 
Edwardes Tucker, of Sealyhun. 

1. Margaret, Ml. to Thomas Hewett,son 
and beir of Thomas Hewelt, chanter 
of St. David's, and ajustice of peace 
for Pembrokeshire. 
The three brothers above mentioned were 
the lirBt members of this family who adopted 
the surname of Edwardes ; and it was not 
in the reign of Henrv the Fourth, aa as- 
serted at p. 314, but in that of Henrv VII. 
that surnames were first adopted by tbe 

principal gentry of Wales. In this famOy, 
the surname of Edwardbs was not asauncd 
until the time of Elizabkth, when Richard 
Edwardea, being appointed chanoellor of 
St David's, appears to have gathered all 
the anrvivin^ member* of his family into

of St. Mary's Gateshead, in the county of

Tit Rtv. John Wbroe. A.M. vicar of 
Kirknewton, in Northumberland. Of this 
gentleman the following extraordinary cir- 
cumstance is well authenticated, and has 
been banded down in many families in the 
north. About the year 1690, when the feel- 
ing in Scotland was so strong against epis- 
copacy, on the night before Cbnstmas-day, 
abont ten o'clock, a knock was heard at the 
door of the vicarage, and upon the servant 
enquiring who was there, the answer was — 
a friend from Gateshead, (where the Rev. 
gentleman's father nai rector) upon which 
orders were given to open the door, when a 
person ruihed In armed, and found his way 
into the room where Mr. Werge was sitting. 
He, without preface, declared his intention, 
and made a stroke with a sword, which in 
all probability would have proved fatal, but 
the room being low, and a large beam pro- 
jecting across the ceiling, the weapon caught 
the beam, and onlyinOicted a tri&ing wound 
on one shoulder. The reverend gentleman, 
who was a powerfal man, and in the act of 
rising when the blow was given, imme- 
diately closed with the aaunn, b<rt not be-

this post, says Prince, *' ho continned 
man^ years, manifesting in all his actions 
an inSexible virtue and honesty. And, 
indeed, it fell out at last that he had an 
extraordinary occasion laid before bim, for 
Ihe proof and trval thereof; npon which 
we find he proven as tmo as steel, for the 
greatest dangers could not afiright him from 
bis dn^and loyalty to hia distressed master, 
King Richard II., unto whom he faithfully 
adhered wben roost others had forsaken 
bim : to bis present loss indeed, but to hia 
btnre eternal renown. For in the catas- 
trophe of that king's reign, this reverend 
judge, unable and unwilling to bow, like a 
willow, with every blast of wind, did freely 
and confidently speak his mind. He op- 
posed the proceedings for procurators, in 
regard to his oath, to take King Richard's 
resignation, bis true and undoubted sove- 
reign. This cause be pursued with so much 
zeiU and eameetuess, Uiat at the entrance of 
Henry IV. into the English crown, about 
Ihe year of our Lord 1400. he was by tlia( 
prince banished his coantry. and his goods

dying without iMne, he "l. secondly, Jane, 
dangWr of Sir William Haiu^fon), knt. 
and widow of — Wadhim. A proof of thu 
great proweM in arms of thii gallant knight 
It recorded in the following exploit: " In 
the beginning of the reign of HeNRT V, m 
certain knight-errand of Arregon. hdTing 
pnraed throagh direr* countries, and per- 
formed many feata of arms, to his high com- 
inendation, arrived here in England, where 
be challenged any inan of hu rank and 
quality to make tryal of his ralor and skill 
in arms. This challenge Sir Robert Gary 
Accepted ; between whom a crnel enconnler 
■nd ■ longand doubtful combat was waged, 
in Smith field, Loudon. But at length, this 
noble champion Tanqnished the presamp- 
tooDS Arragonois : for which King Henrv 
V. restored nntohim good part of bu father's 
lands, which, for bis loyal^ to King Rich- 
ard 11., he had been depnTed of by King 
Henrv IV. ; and authorized him to bear the 
arnn of the knight of Arragon, vis. ' In a 
Held lilTer, on a bend sa. three white roses,' 
which the noble posterity of thii gentleman 
mntinne to wear unto this day ; for, accord- 
ing to the laws of heraldry, whosoever

may justify the bearing of his arms."

A Scottisb writer, Buchanjin, of Aug hmi 

in Scotland, iras one Buey Ansblan, 

O'Kj-an, King of Ulster, who (when the 
Danei, to avenre the Hassacre of limerick, 
peraecuted aniT dcitroTcd numbers of the 
uiA,) paMed orer to Scotland with a body 
of foUowera in or about the year 1016, and 
that the (aid Anielan, harinr giren great 
ataiatance to Malcolh II. in hie wan, was 
rewarded by that king with graiita of lands 
of can«der«bte value, and a iplendid coat 
of aroiB. (The aame monarcb conferred 
abost Ae aaroe time similar grants upon the 
hmiij of Keith, and several othen.) Bn- 
dnnan goes on to state that the territory 
M cDBferred was called the " lands of Bu- 
t^anan ;" but diet the traditjou ia, that this 
BoET Anselan married an heiress of the 
■ame of Bennieatonn, and in ber right ac- 

e~r«d ihoM lands. He establishes the 
t, however, that Anslan took up his abode 
Oneit a* " Bney Anaelan, Dominna de Bn- 
fhsn»n," and that his ancceasors were all 
Lairds of Buchanan. Of these feudal chiefs 
be givGo a regalar dynasty, beginning in 
tte year lOlS, with the said Anselah ( the 
•ecood laird, in loeo, be denominates John 
Mac Auslane, and be proceeds ontil he 
extiiigaishes ilie line with the last of the 
Urds, John, who flooriabed in 1683, leaving 
■a raly dauhter and heireia. 

Snd is BacbanaB's descent of Ae Ba- 
^•■•n famQy, the yonnger sons of the dif~ 
fcreat lairds of which foimded the numerona 
WaaAea now bearing the name. His state- 
■eim, faowerer, concerning the branch 
*Uch always adhered to the designation of 
Kac Aoilaxe are not so clear ; me flr«t of 

MM to a charter, granted by Malcolm, Earl 
ef Iiciinos, of the lands of Loss, to John, 
Iduid of Luss, abovt the year 1360, the sig- 
■alnre to that charter being "Malcolm, 
BaiM Mac Anslaae." The next he men- 
timi* is one " Mac Beth, Baron Mao Anse- 
lane," of whom there are variotu traditional 
■ccowitB as to his stature and nncommou 
■narth. Be lived about the year 1400. 
^aird beiroo was Alexander, " Wf Baron 
Vac Anselane," whoae only daughter mar- 
■U tme of the Campbella, uler whose deaOi 
■k add her inheritance to Sir Hnmphry 
Cvlfabtmn, of Loss, her superior. " 

IK aow settled In the counties of Tyroni 

and Derry, in the north of Ireland," and 
that those are descended from " the Baron 
Mac Aoslane who went out of the parish of 
Loss, about the latter period of the reign of 
Kin^ Jaues VI." From this baron the 
family before ns claims descent. 

Baroh M'Auslane, of Olenduglas, came 
over to Ireland in the latter end of ATin; 
James I.'a reign, about the year IflOO, and 
left two sons, Andrew and John. Of tbe 
younger the line is now extinct The elder, 
Andrew M'Adslahb, had a son, 
Alexander M'Auslahe, who served in 
tbe army in Ireland before the Tear 1M6, 
as appears by the auditor-general s acconntt 
of the period, wherein tbe said Alexander is 
stated to be entitled to a share of tbe for- 
feited and debenture lands, and to a share 
of money as one of the adventnrers and sol- 
diers before the rebellion of 1S41. He set- 
tled in the county of Tyrone, and was at 
his death possessed of the manors of Ard- 
Btrath, Mountfield, and others. He m.

entered on the Bolls as " Oliveiios Mac

of sheriff for the conn^ of Tyrone in 1687.

Tka fiunily, wbieh is of remote antiquity, 
betit one of the earlieM British ■nmamea 
tfoa record ; familiar nofr for more than 
ail bwklred jreara on either aide of the 
Tweed, bat originally adopted, according 
M badhiOD, ■• wall as aothenticated written 
tvidnee, ob the Scottish Border. The peo- 
pi>i whom it came to deoi^ate, are repre- 
•eatad, bv the same teatioiony, as a portion 
of fte Ulaler Crdithene, which about the 
Wfianing of the ninth centnr7, crowed the 
Iriih Channel, and reconquered from the 
Saxrat die greater part of their o^inal 
poMewiona in the aonth of Scotland. These 
laadi L»own in onr time as the district of 
GaikiwKj, DnmfrieMhire, and part of 
Peehle*, formed, in coojanction with La~ 
aaik and Reii£rew, the Celtic kinzdom of 
Sfutb Clutd, where in some of ue most 
mnote di s trict s , nnlil rery recently, the 
Gwlie t»r Irish langnage was conatantly 
^fcktB. The Craithene, so called from the 
Cehie word, " Cmiteneaeb," to paint, had 
been driven into Ireland by the Roman 
C»B^eror« and had taken posaesaion of the 
pmiDce of Ulster ; but becomins in pro- 
CMB of tine too numerous for their new 
w W ement, adTentBred to regain from the 
SnuHia, a portioa of that territory from 
•Ueh Ae Romans had expelled their fore- 
fttbm. VielorionB, — the conquered coun- 
try, was divided amongst thetr leaders: 
aad the Vale or Dale of the River Annan, 
tbe portion of one of these cbieflnini, 
•M taken posioriou of by hit followers. 

This Tale was then thickly wooded, and 
ttie deer and Ae wild boar could be chaaed 
from " the Devil's Punch Bowl to Annan 
Water Foot," without once emei^ing 
from the Forest. With the settlement 
of tbia people on the borders of the two 
kingdoms, began Aat harassing and petty 
wamre which may be said to have con- 
tiuDed until long after the Union ; and tra- 
dition affirms, that " a holyday" became the 
warcry or stoggan of tbe chief and people 
of Annjuidale, whenever they made a 
" raide" or foray upon the Saxon border — 
for they accounted every day holy, that 
was spent In ravaging the enemy's eonnlnr. 
The wars that in aflertiraes so fiercely 
raged between two neighbouring and rival 
nations, thus arose from the hatred that 
existed and long continued to exist between 
two distinct people, the Saxon and the Gaul, 
theoppressor and the oppressed. The Clan, 
when provisions became scarce were sum- 
moned to make a holyday, and in proof of 
the probability of this origin of the name, 
the eminence where tbe " Annandale Moss 
Troopers," were accustomed to asBembla 
when a foray into England was ordered, 
still retains uedeajgnntion of the Hallidat 
Hill. Whether this derivation be correct 
or not, there are now no means of ascer- 
taining — bnt tbe evidence is complete, that 
the chieftain, who first assumed the sur- 
name, had his castle or strong tower, near 
the source of flie River Annan, and abont 
two or three miles above the present flou- 
riiliing vHtage of Moffat, so celebrated for 
its mineral waters; at the CoREHEAn the 
rnins of this castle may still bo traced, and 
there we may suppose that generation after 
generation had lived in Celtic greatness as 
chieft, andhadhunted the wolf and tbe wild 
boar in the woody vale, when tbe more 
profitable pursuit of Saxon beeves was not 
necessary or advisable. 

On the accession of David, the first of 
hia name, to the throne of Scotland, a new 
era may be said to have arisen ; not only 
new laws but a new race of people were 
introduced into the country. DAVin had 
resided, during the greater part of bis hro~ 
ther's reign, at the court of the Norman 
conquerors of England, and had married 
the heiress of Waltheof Earl ofHunting- 




don and NorthumberUnd, to whfcb titlet 
lie wu in consequence advanced by bis royal 
brotber-in-law in 1130. Hence, in habib 
and feeling, he became a Norman himaeir, 
M)d finding his Scotlish crown aurronnded 
with many thorns, and the Celtic tribes 
more ready to fight for independence, 
than to submit to control, he prevailed 
upon aa many as he could of the younger 
■ODS of the Nonuan baians to accom- 
pany him into Scotland. In this David 
was actoated by more than one motiTe, for 
wbile thev could not fail to enliven his court, 
and by Ineir better breeding and greater 
polish tend to soften and civilize the man- 
ners of the Scotch, they would, at the same 
time, form a very efficient body guard and 
enable him to raise and dicipline an army 
with more advantage than could be done 
by the natives. Amongst the many young 
men of noble birth but scant fortune, that 
accompanied King Djivid, was Robert de 
Bttuis, a son of the Baron of Cleveland, 
who as a reward for thus exiling himself 
from "merry England," received a grant 
of the Valla de Annan, to be held of the 

Border Celts were a warlike, though at all 
times an undisciplined people, and subdued 
and heart-broken in their own territory, it 
may naturally be supposed they sought for 
adventure on some other shore. Tbe Nor- 
man yoke must have been felt most acutely — 
and certain it is, that almost every man able 
to bear arms within the Stewartr^ (as it 
was now called) of Annandale, joined the 
standard of the Earl of Huntingdon, and 
accompanied the lion-hearted RtCH«itD to 
tiie Holy Land.* But even previous to this 
levy " en masse," many of tbe Hallioay 
clan had returned to Ireland, or Sed into 
the wilds of Galloway, where their valour 
long kept tbe Norman at bay. It is not 
required to follow the history of the legions 
which Jfiny Richard led to Palestine — 
while the illfated monarch was in capti- 
vity, the Esrl of Huntingdon returned to 
England with all that remained of the British 
force — and such was the jealousy of the 
two factions, or rather the faction of Prijtct 
John, which then disturbed the peace of 
the kingdom, that this little band of worn 
out, but distinguished warriors, was dis- 
charged and dispersed over the kingdom. 
Among these veterans.there must have been 
seen many of the name of Halliday, for 
we very soon afterwards find the samame 
common in several counties in England, 
holding freehold lands of the sovereign, as 
also vassals of superior lords. 

■ Of the five tbomuid men lent by Wiluah 
of ScolUnd to join King Richihd, ons tbouisnii 
wera from Annsndilf, *nd alinast all Ualudavi. 

In 1240, a Walter HuxtDAT stands ia 
the Exchequer Rolls, as lord of a manor, 
called St. Bololpb, in Kent, and a Wtuiiic 
Halliday is mentioned in 1278, as pos- 
sessing Trivil, in the same county. Is 
1298, ThohasHaixiday, and in 13(15, John 
Halliday represented the town of Bedfoid 
in parliament. About this period also a 
Gbrard Halliday, and four others of bit 
name are mentioned as land holders in lb( 
hundred of Lackford, county of Suffolk. 
Others stand recorded aa proprietors of die 
parishes of " Wardeboys, or "Waibojs," 
and Caldicole, in Huntingdonshire; and of 
Bampton-Pogys, Oxfordshire. 

In 1338, 

John Halliday, of Pontefract, was snm- 
moned to attend his sovereign, Edward III. 
with twenty bowmen, and men at arms (to 
be paid by him) in the wars against tbe 
Scots. In 1435, 

Thomas Haujday, of Pontefract, com- 
manded five hundred archers in Sir John 
Shirley's division of the English army, il 
the battle of Agincourt. In 1470, 

Waltee Halliday, called " Thi Mai- 
itrel," became master of the revels to Ed- 
ward IV., and acquired lands in the pa- 
rish of Rodborough, in the county of Glou- 
cester, which are still held by his descen- 
dants. He was father of 

Henry Haluday, styled of Hinchis

at bis father's decease, «si 
sent to London, where be 
rose to be sheriff, and, in 
1606, was lord mavor, (nd 
knighted by King James 1. 
Stowe, in his annals, states 
how Sir Leonard converted 
tbe Mooriields, then " a per- 
fect lystal," in the viciai^ 
of London, into the beiuti- 
ful and fashionable gardens 
which they were in siter- 
times, and so little agreeabl* 
was this labonr to the men 
employed, that they sdopled

became a colonel of horse, chief justice, 
spealter of the assembly, and one of the

for his spirited and Buccesglul resistance to 
the arbitrary measures of the crown in 1679, 
as related in Edwards's West Indies. He

was h%h-Bheriff of Salop in 1788. 


The fhmil; of Huckleston is of con- 
aideraUe antiquity in the counly of Salop. 

A charter of the Earl of Arundel and 
Surrey, dated 1399, recites that the lands 
of RooER, son of RooEH de Mokleston, 
had been seised into the hands of the earl, 
his father, "nhom God assoile," bj reason 
of forfeiture for ontlawry, pronounced 
M|ainst Ro^, the sou, for the death of 
Richard de Mokleston, his brother, hy him 

standing the lands nere in the earl's hands, 
purchased them in fee simple from the said 
Roger, the sou, " now by the advise of our 
council," says the earl, (such is the almost 
regal style of our ancient nobles) "and for 
the sum of £20 paid by Trland to us, we 
pardon his purchase of the said land, with- 
out having first oblaiued our license." 

There can he no doubt that this transac- 
tion refers to the family before us, but it rs 
difficult lo assign its proper place iu the 
pedigree, which commeocrs with

Mr. Macleod Bucceeded hia lather in 1770. He was. 
formerly, repreBccilatJre in parliaaient forCromarty, and 
was constituted lord-lienlenant for that shire when the 
office was first instituted in Scotland, anno 1 794. He re- 
signed in 1 83 3. He ii a deputy-lientenant for Roaa-shire. 


It ts aAnowledged nniversally that the 
Hackeods uf Seo^md, sprang from the Nor- 
wegim Kings of Han, of which monarchs 
the fonmrtag is a brief narratire, as re- 
<M4«d in &e Oironicle of the Island, pnb- 
Uri wiA CaMMen'a BritanaU, anno 1566. 

I. Gonrnu), somamed Crovan, son 
of HahoU), tkt Black, being ap- 
pointed sovereizn of Man, and tbe 
Western Isles, bv Harolo, Ihe Im- 
ptri»Ht, came with a fleet, and army, 
and took poaaeasion of hia kingdom, 



anno 106S, bnt the saperiority still 
reoieined with the kinga. He left ml 
hb decease three Mtu, 

1. LitGHilN. 

2. HitRaLD. 

3. Otftua, or Olare, a child at hit 
father's death. 

II. Laoman, KinKofHanBiidthelBlea: 
this monarch's brother, Harold, 
having raised a rebellion againat 
liim, wasdcfeated and made prisoner, 
and Laginan pnt oat his ejes, and 
otherwise treated him barbarously, 
l^pnan being afterwards seized with 
remorae, went on a pilgrimage to 
Jerusalem, and died there issueless, 
in the year 1089. Hts anhapp; 
brotiier, Harold, dying also childlesa, 
the kingdom fell to the youngest and 
only surviving brother, 

III. Olal's, or Olave, snmamed the 
Snartk^, who being still in minority, 
the government of the island was 
committed to a nobleman of Ireland, 
named Donald, son of Thade, but 
the regent acting tyrannically, was 
expelled the kingdom, and Olaus 
having then attained majority, as- 
sumed the reins of government, 
anno 1102. This monarch espoused 
Africa, daughter of Fergus, Lord of 
Galloway, at the timeoueof the most 
powerful subjects in Scotland, and 
had one ion, Godfred, kitkeir, with 
several daughters, one of whom, 
Africa, married Sonbrl.ei>*Macoii.- 
BRED, Qiane of Argyll, ancestor of 
the Macdonalds, and by him had 
four sons, viz. Dungall, Reginald, 
Angus, aiid Olave. Through this 
marriage the family eventually lost 
the kingdom of the Isles, and upon it . 
vras founded the title of Kings and 
Lords of the Isles, assumed ov the 
descendants of Somerlade, the Hac- 
donalda ; Olaua had likewise three 
illegitimate aona, Reginald, legman, 
and Harold. He waa a good prince, 
and always lived in league and 
friendship with the kings of Scotland 
and Ireland. After a peaceful reign 
of about forty years, he was treache- 
rously murdered by the sons of his 
natural brother, Harold, anno 1143, 
and waa /. by hia only lawful aon, 

IV. OoDFRED, King of Man and the 
lalea, who m. Phingold, daughter of 
Hactotten, son of Hackartae, King 
of Ireland, by whom he had one sod, 
Olaus, or Olave, hia heir, and two 
natural aona, Reginald and Ivar. 

This God&«d proving a tyrant, hts 
subjects rebelled under Torphin, the 
BOD of Otter, and others, who trana- 
ferred the goverment of the island to 
Dungall, aon of Somerlede. King 
Godfred d. in 1187, and his ouly 
lawful bod, 

V. Olaus, sumamed the Black, being 
then only len years of age, the noblea 
ca#t their eyes ou Regiuald, his 
natural brother, who was a brave 
man, but he had no sooner got the 
reigna of government than he seised 
upon ttie cowD, of which he retained 
possession thirty eight years, and 
gave his brother, Olaus, the rightful 
heir, the island of Lewes, for bis sub- 
sistence. Olaua, however, after en- 
countering maay dangers and diiE- 
culttes, recovered, by the assistance 
of Paul, sheriff of Skye, possession of 
hia kingdom of Han and the Isles, 
anno 1220, and enjoyed it until he 
died, in tbe)rear 1337. Hehadbeea 
thrice married, first, to a daughter of 
one of the nobles of Kintyre, by 
whom he had three sons, viz. 

1. Harold, "l Kinga of Han and 

2. Reginald, \^ai Isles, in suc- 

3. Hagnus, J ceasion. 

By his second wife he had im iaan«, 
but by the third, Christina, daughter 
of Ferquhar, earl of Ross, he waa 
father of three other sons, 

1. Leoid, Lovd, or Leod, Ibe 
acknowledged progenitor of tbe 
clan Macleod. 

2. GuiN, from whom the clan Gun, 
in Sutiierland, are desceaded. 

3. Leaundres, of whom the clan 
Le sunders, in Roaa-shire. 

The three elder sons became in sac- 
cession Kinga of Han and the Isles, 
but that dominion terminated when 
Maonus, King of Norway, made a 
aurrender of Han, and the weatern 
islea to Alexander III. King of 
Scotland, in 1265. Ha gnus, the 
youngest of the three aona, and last 
king, died without issue, at ^e castle 
Koaa.anno 1366, and thus tenninBt«d 
theNorwegian race of sovereigns; ve 
now proceed with the eldest of lb« 
three younger sons.

his father, the island of Lewea, be. 

and brought up in the house of Paul, 
son of Soke, sheriff of Skye, a ^an

of Prudhoe, aa guarantee for his loyalty ; 
notwithglandiDgwhich, BOBoon bh the barons 
look up arms, he appeared amongst them, 
when his lands were seized, and |:ranted to 
Hngh de Baliol. In the reign of Henry 
III. however, be made his peace, and had 
reititation of the castle of Prudboe, Ri- 
chard's eldest son, 

Gilbert de Uhfreviixe, succeeded to 
the barony of Prudhoe, and doing homare, 
3nd Henry III. and paying £lOO. for bis 
relief, had livery of his lands. In the 13th 
of the same reign he was one of the uorthem 
baroDS appointed by the king to be at Ber- 
wick-upon-Tweed npon Sunday before Hid- 
Lent, to attend Alexander of Scotland 
thence to York, where the English monarch 
met tiie Scoliish Ling, and to a charter be- 
tween the two princes the name of Gilbert 
de UmfreTille is affixed as a witness. Me 
died 39th Henry 111. according to Matthew 
Paris, " a famous baron, guardian and chief 
flower of the north," leaving a son and heir, 

Gilbert DE UiirHeviLL, seven years old 
at his father's decease, whose gaardianship 
was committed to Simon de Montfort, Earl 
of Leicester, in consideration of one thou- 
sand marks paid to the king. This feudal 
lord attained majority in the 43rd Henry HI. 
and in six years afterwards we find him in 
arms with the barons, but he made his peace 
before tbe battle of Evesham, and obtained 
then some immunities from the crown. In 
the 30lh of Edward 1. he was governor of 
the castles of Dundee and Forfar, and tbe 
whole territory of Angus, in Scotland, and 
appears to have borne the title of Earl of 
Angus, in right of his wife, Elizabeth, 
daughter and heiress of John Comyn, Barl of 
Angus. He was summoned to parliament 
however, subsequently, 24th June, 1395, as 
Baron Uhfrevill only ; but in the2&th of 
Edward I. and from that period to the 1st of 
Edward II. he had summons as "Gilberlo 
de Umfrevill, Comili de Angos." This title 
the English lawyers refused to acknowledge 
(Angus not being within the kingdom of 
England), until he had openly produced the 
king's writ in pnblic court, by which he was 
called toparliamentas Eahl OF Angus. His 
lordship was highlv instrumental in forti- 
fying tbe castles aoa strongholds in Scotland, 
and was the only man who refused to sur- 
render the fortresses in his custody to the 
enemy. He died in 1908, and was succeeded 
by his son (then thirty years of age), 

Robert de Uhfrevill, second Earl of 
Angus, and feudal baron of Prudboe. This 
noMeman distineaiabed himself, while his 
father lived, in &e Scottish wars, and sood 
after his •ccession to the honors of the fa- 

. Lord Roa, of Hamlake, and Henry, 
Lord Beaumont, in the lieutenancy of Scot- 
land. In the Iltb of Edward Jl. he wbii 
one of the confmissioners appointed to treat 
with Robert Bruce for a truce between tbe 
realms. His lordship espoused, first, Lucie, 
dangbter of Philip de Kyme, Baron Kvme, 
and eventually heiress of her brother Wil- 
liam, second BaroD Kyme, by whom he had 

Gilbert, summoned to parliament as 
third Eahl of Anou«, from 27tb Ja- 
nuary, 1332, to 26th August. 1380. 
This nobleman acquired great reputa- 
tion in tbe Scottish wars, and was a 
chief commander at the battle of 
Durham, 20th Edward HI. where 
David Brus was totally defeated, 
and made prisoner by the English. 
His lordship wedded, first, Johanna, 
daughter of Robert, Lord Willough- 
by de Eresby, by whom be had n?

of Anthony Lucy, and had an only 
child, Robert, who «. Margaret,

in the county of York, and of Kyme, 
Ersewardby, Methringham, Barom- 
burgb, Culseby, Elkynlon, Joyng-

leaving Alianore, his niece, wife of 
Henry Talhoys, his heir of the whole 
blood, and Thomas Umfrerille, hia 
brother of the half blood, his next 
male heir, but none of the family

Sir John Pophah, knt. adopting the legal 
profession, attained its highest bonoars, and 
accnmnlating an ample fortnne, purchased, 
in the time of Euzabbth, from the family of 
Darbll, the estate of Littlecolt, in the 
countr of Wilts. Fuller, in his English 
Worthies, speaks thus of this learned per- 
son. " Sir John Popham, of most ancient 
descent, was bom at Hontwortb, in the 
county of Somerset. In his youthful dayes 
he was as stotit and skilful a man at sword 
and buckler as any in that age, and wild 
enough in his recreations. Bat oh ! if 
qnicksilTer could be really fixed, to what a 
treasure it would amount! Such is wild . 
youth seriously reduced to gravity, as by 
this young man did appear. He applied 
himself to a more profitable fencing, the 
study of the law, therein attaining to such 
eminency, that he became the quAn's at- 
torney, and aHerwards Lord ChiepJustice 
OF Enoland. Being sent, anno 1000, by 
the queen, with some others, to the Earl of 
Essex, to know the cause of die confluence of 
so many military men into his house, the 
soldiers therein detained him for a time, 
which some did mske tantamonnt to an im- 
prisonment. This, his violent detention. 
Sir John deposed upon oath at the Earl's 
trial, which 1 note uie rather for the rarity 
thereof, that a lord-chief-justice ahould be 

Erodnced as witness in open court. In the 
eginning of the reign of Kixg James his 
justice was exeraplsry on thieves and rob- 
bers. The land then swarmed with people 
which had been souldiers, who had never 
gotten (or else quite forgotten) any other 
vocation. Hard it was for peace to feed all 
the mouths which a former war did breed ; 
being too proud to begge, too lazy to labour, 
those infected the bigbwayes with their felo- 
nies, some presuming on their mnttitades, 
as the robbers on the northern rode, whose 
knot (otherwise not to be untyed) Sir John 
cut asunder with the sword of justice. He 
possessed King Janes bow die frequent 
granting of pardons was prejudicial to jus- 
tice, rendering the judges to the contempt of 
insolent malefactors ; which made His Ma- 
jesty more sparing afterwards in that kind. 
In a word, the deserved death of some scores

TER Scott appends the following tradition 
regarding Littlecott, when possessed by the 

■■ Littlecott House stands in a low and 
lonely situation. On three aides it is sar-. 
rounded by a park, that spreads over tbe 
adjoining hill ; on the fourth by meadows, 
which are watered by tlie river Kennet. 
Close on one side of Ihe house is a grove of 
lofty trees, alon^ the verge of which mna 
one of tbe principal avenues to it through 
Ao park. It is an irregular building, of 
great antiquity, and was probably erected 
about the termination of feudal warfare, 
when delimce came no hmger to be an 
object in a country mansion. Many cir- 
curaslances, however, in the interior of ths 
house, seem appropriiitc 1o feudal dniM.

haek-frout of toe house from one end to the 
oQierof It, and looks npon aa old garden. 
Thia gallery is hong with portraits, chiefiy 
in Spanish dresses of the sixteenth century. 
Id one of the bedchaiubera which vou pass 
!■ gcAag towaMs the gallery, is a bedstead 
with blue furniture, which time lins now 
made dingy and thraadbare, and in the bot- 
tom of ooe of the bed curtains you are 
showir a place where a small piece had 
been cut out and sewn in a^n, a circum- 
stance which serres to identify the scene of 
the following story. 

" It was a dark rainy night, in the month 
of November, that an old midwife sat mus- 
ing by her cottage fireside, when on a sndden 
shewsa startled by a load knocking at the 
door. On opening it she found a horsemiu, 
who toM her that her assistance was required 
immediately by a person of rank, and that 
she should be handsomely rewarded, but 
that there were icasons for keeping the affair 
a strict secret, and therefore she must snb- 
mic to being blindfolded, and to be con- 
ducted to the bedchamber of the lady. With 
some hesitation the midwife consented: the 
horseman bound her eyes.vnd placed heron 
a pillion behind him. After proceeding in 
silence for many jniles tbrou^ rough and 

dirty lanes, they stopped, and the midwife 
was led into a house, which from the length 
of her walk throngh the apartments, aa 
well as the sounds Aont her, she disco- 
rered to be the seat of wealth and power- 
When the bandnge was removed from her 
eyes, she found herself in a bedchamber, ip 
which there was a lady, en whose account 
she had been scot for, and a man of haughty 
and ferocious aspecL The lady whs deli- 
vered of a fine boy. Immediately the man 
commanded the midwife to give him the 
child, and catching it from her, he hurried 
across the room, and threw it on the back of 
the fire that was blazing in the chimney. 
The child, however, was strong, and by its 
struggles rolled itself off upon the hearth, 
when the raSian again seized it with fury, 
and, in spite of the intercemion of the mid- 
wife, and the more pious entreaties of the 
mother, thmst it under the grate, and raking 
the live coals upon it, soon put an end to lis 
life. The midwife, after spending some 
time in affording all the relief in her power 
to the wretched mother, was told thai she 
must begone. Her former conductor ap- 
peared, who aRBin bound her eyes, and 
conveyed her beniDd him (o her own home ; 
he then paid her handsomely, and departed. 
The midwife was strongly agitated by the 
horrors of the preceding night ; and she 
immediately made a deposition of the fact 
befose a magistrate. Two circumstances 
aflbrded hopes of delecting the house in 
which the crime b4d been committed ; one 
was, that the midwife, as she sat by the bed- 
side, had, with a view to discover the place, 
cut out a piece of the bed curtain, and sown 
it in again ; the other was, that as tbt bad 
descended the staircase, she bad counted 
the steps. Some suspicion fell upon one 
Darell, at that time the proprietor of Lit- 
tlecolt House, and the domain around it. 
The house was examined, and identifled 
by the midwife, and Darell was tried at 
Salisbury for the murder. He escaped the 
sentence of the law; but broke his neck by 
a fall from his horse in bunting, in a few 
months after. The place where this hap- 
pened is still known by the name of Darell's 
Stile, a spot to be dreaded by the peasant 
whom the shades of evening have overtaken 
on his way. 
" Uttleeott HooM is two miles from Hnn- 

gerford. in Berk^ire, through which the 
Bath road passes. The fact occurred in the 
reign of Euzabeth. All the important 
I have given exactly as they 
oic Hiiu lu uie county; some trifles only 
are added, either to render the whole 
connected, or to increane the impression.*'

Edward IV. Of this distinguished 
and upright judge we hare ate fol- 
lowing accoant, " John Markham 
was born at Harkham, in Notting- 
hamshire, descended of an ancient 
and worthy family. He employed 
his yonth in the studying of the mu- 
nicipal law of thw realm, wherein he 
attained to auch eminency, tLal King 
Edward IV. koishted him, and made 
him Lord Chief JoiCice of the King's 
Bench, in the place of Sir John For- 
tcscue, that leprued and upright 
judge, who fled away with King 
Henry VI. Yet Fortescue was not 
missed, because Markham succeeded 
him ; and that loss, which otherwise 
could not be repaired, now could not 
be perceived. For though these two 
judges did seTerally.lean to the sides 
of Lancaster and York, yet both sat 
nprighl in matters of judicature." 
Camden states this chief justice " the 
greatest ornament of this family, who 
tempered bis judgments with so niiieh 
c^uit}^ (a* yon may read in the 
hittoriea nt England), that his name 
will endure as long as time itself.

Dr. Wrighta died !■ 1668, and was s. by 

his SOD, 

Sir NathanWriohte, 6. at Thurcaston, 
11th Pebmary. 1663. This eminent person 
received his education at Emanuel College, 
Cambridge, and thence became a member 
of the Inner Temple, London, where for 
seven years he devoted the entire of bis 
time to the stndy of the law ; but acquiring 
then an independent fortune, with his wife, 
Elixahelh, daughter of George Aebby, esq. 
of Queenby, he declined practising at the 
bar, until ui^d by the advice of his friends, 
and the increase of his family. Subse- 
quently acquiring high reputation as a sound 
lawyerandeloqoentadvocale.he was elected 
recorder of Leicester, in 1680; called to the 
degree of seijeant, in 1602 ; and knighted 
the 301h December, 1686. In four years 
afterwards, Sir Nslhati Wrigbte was de- 
clared by the kins in council successor to 
Lord Somers in uie custody of the Great 
Seal, under the title of Lord Keeper, and 
he continued in this elevated office until 
the 6th October, 170&, when, through the 
intrigues of the Duchess of Marlborough, 
be received his dismissal. 

The character and abllitiea of the Lord 
Keeper Wrigbte have been very differently 
estimated by cotemporary writers. 

Jobo Dunton describes him as " de- 
servedly advanced to the highest pinnacle of 
state preferments," while he is stigmatized 
fay Burnet, as " covetous, slothful and ex- 
ceptionable in all respects." 



.1 Blow chin- 
cellor, &Dd ao ciTiliui> Chuice, more than 
choice, brought him the se&li ; the lords 
chief jucticcB, Hall and Trehy, refilling to 
succeed bo great K man as the Lord Somen, 
they fell into the hands of thii gentleman ; 
who being recommended by the oppoaite 
parhr, proved their faithful tool ever lince. 
He {■ a plain man, both in person aod coa- 
Teraation, of middle itature, inclining (o 
corpalency, and liatb a fat broad face, much 
marked with the small pox." 

A more farorable eitimate of Sir Nathan'i 
conduct is recorded by Sir T. little, who 
states the Lord Keeper to have been " of 
an iDTiolable fidelity, and of a steady regard 
to the conititation in cborch and state.

tbe East BidinK, which property he had 
derired from bis mother Beck with, aud 
where .be was probably induced to Ex from 
the contiguity to his wife's family at Barley, 
uear Selbj. This small estate descended 
regularlv in the hands of the Lawrani till 
tbe death ofMarmadukeLansoii, of Horeby 
and Seaton Rosse (great uncle of tbe pre- 
aept direct representative of the &mily), ia 
January 1761. 

The patrimony of the I^wBoua passed thro 
into other bands, under the will of that 
gentleman, made before the birth of bis 
nephew, Harmaduke, father of tbe preseul 
Mr. Lawson, leaving the estates at Moreby, 
Seatan Roue, Holme, and Beilby, failing 
^e more direct heirs, " to his brother Bi- 

ton and his liejis." Richard predeceaaed 
the testator six months, in consequence of 
which the property devolved upon Hr. 
PrEston, a distant relation of the family. 

The Ret. Harmaduke I^wson bat in g 
thus been deprived of hia paternal inherit- 
ance, the Wilkinson property (one much 
superior to the Lawson) was lelt by will of 
tbe Inst male descendant, and the Lawsone 
are thus continued in their native county, 
within twelve milea of Poppleton, sixteen 
of York, and twenty-one of Moreby, ro- 
tainiag their proper name of I^wsod, but 
indebted for their eatatea to Wilkinson.
