This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover.

My " Dictionary of the Landed Gentry " is now, for the first time, 
presented to the public complete in a single volume, exactly similar to 
that of my " Peerage and Baronetage/' The book may appear lai^, 
yet, its contents, in the same manner, as with the Dictionary of the 
Peerage and Baronetage, have been compressed into the smallest compass 
consistent with the fall information such productions should necessarily 
possess, to be historically, genealogically, and generally usefdl. 

This work, the subject of which is of deep, and I may say, national 
interest, has been a favourite occupation of my past life, and has been 
cheered in its course by great and flattering success : I have laboured in 
this new edition, with a spirit fully alive to the importance of perpetuating 
such prosperity. I have spared in the task neither toil nor devotion; 
every page has been re-written, every memoir careftQly revised, and every 
pedigree minutely examined. Communications in emendation have been 
received from all parts of the kingdom, and new information of great 
value obtained: these means of perfection, when acquired, have been 
carefully attended to. 

I may, therefore be pardoned in the agreeable and sanguine hope that 
"The Dictionary of the Landed Gentry/^ thus submitted to further public 
approval, will be deemed a more comprehensive, faithful^ and worthy record, 
than can be obtained from any other source, of that class of gentlemen, 
who, though undistinguished by hereditary titles, possess an undeniable 
right, from antiquity of race, extent of property, and brilliancy of 
achievement, to take foremost rank among the lesser nobility of Europe.

Mr. Adair, who #. his father 14 July, 180d, is J.P. 
and D.L. for the Queen's County, and was high- 
sheriff in 1822. 

Itnrage.— The traditional origin of the Adajbs </ 
BeUtgrovt is this: 

Thomas, the 8th Esri of Desmond, having gone on a 
hunting expedition, lost his way, and was benighted be- 
tween Tralee and Newcastle, co. Limerick, where he was 
received and hospitably entertained by William M'Cormio, 
whose dau. he subsequently married. At this alliance his 
family and dan, it is s^d, were much oflfended, and com- 
pelled him to fly to France, and resign his title and estates 
to his younger brother, in 1418. He d. of grief at Rouen, 
A.O. 1490, the king of England attending his Amend. The 
fiunily account proceeds to state that his grandscm, 

RoBCST, returning to Ireland, with the hope of regaining 
his fiunily title and estates, kUled Gerald, the White Knight 
(2nd son of Gerald, the then Earl of Desmond) in single 
combat, at Athdare (Ford of the OaksX oo. limerick, but 
was subsequently defeated, and fled to Scotland, where he 
assumed the name of Adaibb. From him descended 

Thomas Aoaibb, Esq. (son of Archibald Adaire). who m. 
Mary Hamilton, of the Scotdi noble temily, and settled in 
the Queen's County, his patrimonial estates being much dimi- 
nished, in consequence of his father having been attainted 
by King Jamo. He had issue^ Archibald, William, John,

Clare, h, 10 May, 1826; s. 29 June, 1850, to the 
extsDsiTe estates of his maternal uncle, the late John 
ICacDonnell, Esq. of New HalL Mr. Armstrong is a 
magistrate for the county of Clare, and filled the 
office of high-sheriff in 1858. 

SintaSt. — ^This fiamlly has long held a leading position 
in the eoonties of Tipperary and King's, where it acquired 
eearfdenble property, as also in the counties of limerick 
sad fWmanagh. Its progenitors were formerly Scotch, 
ffid bore the name of FAiBBAmr, which was changed to 
thstof Amiaisoiio. The Armstrongs of the border were at 
the head of a nomerons and warlike dan, the most famed 
of whose eUeftatns was John Armstrong, of Gilnockie, in 
the*parish of Cannonby, Eskdale. His castle was built on 
a promootocy washed on three sides by the Eslc, which 
h^ng steep and rocky, was soarody aooessiUe but on the 
land side, where it was fenced with a deep ditch. This 
ppwoAil border ehieftain Hred in the reign of Jamb V. 
(1^13 to 1M5) and was the terror of the Western Msiches 
ef BhglanH, baring forced the inhaUtonta of Cumberland, 
Wastaaoriaod, and a great part of Northumberland, to 
Wove Us tribotaries. At length, his power having grown 
too great for a sohiJeet, he became an object of Jealousy to 
the Seottlah king, who levied an army for the avowed pur- 
poee ot poniahing Gilnockie and his foUowera, and marched 
St their head to the parish of Elves. There John was 
anniftnoed to attend the king, upon the promise of security, 
md having aeoordin^y obeyed his summons, in violation of 
tite pohlk Ciith pledged for his personal safety, as observed 
bf Bnfhanan, he and his attendants were hanged at 
Oietlawiek rfgg; two miles to the north of Mosspeul, on 
ti» road b et ween Hawick and Langholm. Alter this 
oeeation, the family dispersed, and some of them aettled 
h diffiemt parts of Eni^and, one branch in linoolnahire : 
tbe preeent liunily trace their deeoent fhnn Sir Thomas 
Anas tfo u g, w^ was the representative of that line. 

8ia Thomas ABMsnoiro, Knt., fr. at Nimeguen, in Holland, 
bad been a great suflbrsr in the royal cause, and was very 
>cdve for CMAauBS II. before the restoration. His enter- 
prubg apidt ezdted the Jealousy of Cromwell, who 
tbw him into prison and even threatened his life. He 
««aged with all the seal that was natural to him in the 
>Bviee of the Duke of Monmooth. Finding himself 


obnoxions to the court, he fled the kingdom and went to 
Holland, and his flight was soon followed by outlawry. 
He was seized abroad and sent to London, where he was 
condemned by Chief Justice JefiMss, and executed at 
Tyburn, without a trial, and with peculiar dreumstances 
of rigour. He at his death denied having ever had ahy 
intention against his Majesty's lifie. The attahider was 
subsequently reversed. Sir Thomas was gentleman of the 
horse to tlie king, captain of the flrst troop of royal horw 
guards, and served as a burgess in parliament for Stafford 
and Leicester town. He had no issue male. 

CaPTAur WiLUAM Abmstboho, brother to Sir Thomas, 
and founder of the family in Tippei-ary, went over to Ireland 
shortly after the battle of Worcester, and settled In the 
old castle at Famey Bridge, near Thurles, where he was 
followed by his brother's widow. Lady Armstrong. William 
Armstrong we find was captain of the troop Of horse 
attached to the Tipperary militia in 1688. He m. Alice,

in Ireland. He was twice urged by the Irish government 
to take a baronetcy (which he declined), in oonsideration of 
important services he had done the country, It was sub- 
sequently arranged that he was to be made a peer, under 
the title of Banm o/Jhmamaie, in Ireland, and the patent

Thomas Bates, Esq. of Ovington Hall, ki Northumbei^

i^iXltKQf, — ^This family has been seated for neariy six 
oenturiee in the ooimty of Somerset. 

Its origin appears to have been Flemish. In the reign of 
EnwARD I., the leading merchants of the wool staple, trading 
-with Flanders and of Flemish origin, were Ingeram do Be- 
isyn, William de Beteyn, and John Beteyn. 

Ingeram de Beteyn a^ held lands In Wendover, co. 
Bucks, where Andrew Batyn, probsbly his son, was M.P. 
for Wycombe hi 1307. 

William Beteyn was sheriff of London, 1280, and amember 
of the Goldsmiths' Company/ Richard Beteyn, goldsmith, 
probably his son, served as mayor of London in 1327, and 
twice T^resented the dty in parliament He bore a con- 
oonspicuouspartinthe dethronement of Edward II., and in 
sequence the city reorived extensive charters from Eoward 
III. on his accession. His arms were Tor many hundred 
yean in the Grey Friars' Church, Newgate, where he was 

Henry Batyn settled in Somersetshire, and was M.P. for 
Bath, 1297 ; from that time to the present his dcisoendants 
have ranalned in that county. 

For a period of 250 years, this fiMnUy occupied an im- 
portant stati<Hi at Bath, and in the adjoining counties, 
ihomas Batten was steward of the priory of Bath in 1684. 
After the dissolution of monasteries, the fiunily seem to 
have quitted Bath, cue brsnch to have settled in Wiltshire, 
of which was Sir Hekbt Batten, Knt., gentleman- 
pensioner to Jambb I., snd another to have gone to the 
more western parts of the county, of which were AxnaEW 
Baitkv, of EaJBton St. Oeoige, and John Battkn, of 
Michael Church, co. Somerset. 

ANniUEW Batten, of Easton, had a son. Sib Wiluam 
Batten, Knt., one of the most eminent naval commanders 
in the civfl wars ; he wss surveyor of the navy, 1638, vice- 
admiral of En^^d from 1642 to 1647, and particularly dis- 
tinguished himself at the sieges of Dartmouth, Lyme, and 
Portland Castle. He was appointed governor of Mount 
Batten, a fort which he built at Plymouth, and which is 
still existing. Though he served the parliament, he was 
sincerely attached to a constitutional monarchy, and averse 
to the designs of the army, to stop whose attempts upon the 
king's life, he revolted with the fleet to Prince Charles. On 
the Restoration, however, he was merely reinstated in his 
post of surveyor, snd became M.P. for Rochester, till his 
death, in 1667. His issue in the male line is extinct. 

John Batten, of Michael Church, is the immediate 
ancestor of the line before us. In 1597, hs is returned as 
having lands in Michael Church. From him sprang, in a 
direct line (with a dau., Grace, m. to John Fletcher), a 

Nathanisl-Butleb Batten, Esq., b. 1718 (son of Robert 
Batten, the friend of Sir Richard Steele, and the author 
of the letten in the Stteetator, vol. i., signed R B.), sold his 
estate At Pitminster, and ptutshased the manor and advow- 
son of Thorn Faulcon. He m. in 1788, Joanna, dau. and

the Bbin in the south and west of Scotland; but the 
Bukin ^ JteUAfodfr, settled in the eountiee of Fife, Perth,

vhom the point was referred, determined that *'the oldest

Ktieft0f •— This is snother brandi of the Bhke fsmily,

Connaught in 1800 ; but more immediately from Richard, 
seoond son of John Blake (sixth in descent from the 
founder), by his wife Eveline Skerrett Richard-FitsJohn 
iUed the oflEiee of mayor of Galway in 1533. On a dlTiiiaQ 
of the property (between the BlakesX the csstle of KUtul- 
la^ and some of the adjoining townlands fell to the lot of 
Bichard. This was part of the estate purchased by 
Richsrd Caddie, aUat Blake, from Thomas Hobzidge, in 

The csstle of KiltuUsgh was built by a person of the 
name of McWelycke, whoee grandson, John MoWelydke, in 
1658, filed a bill in Chancery against Richard and Nicolas 
Bkke. seekiiw compensation for the loss his gnndfather 
sustained in buUding the csstle of Kiltullagh. The Lord 
Chancellor, Sir Thomas Cnsack, ordered Richard Blake to 
pay to complainant, John McWelycke. a small annuity for 
life, inasmuch as his grandfather built the castle, under 
the fanpivssion that he held the lands in perpetuity, 
whereas he only held them for a term of fouiacore years.

Uttlf Sfft. — ^Thefiunay name was originaOy TmosBALD. 
A younger son of the ancient and powerful fsmily, the 
FiTSGEBALDS of Jktmond and KUdaa% came to Connaught 
in the 13th century, and settled in Athenry, as meet of .the 
Anglo-Normans did at that period. A descendant of his 
had BoWDBKiKB added to his name, which was retained, 
and the original diacon t tnii e d in a similar maimer to tha4 

..„....„, J^oogle 



by whleh the dMoendantt of the Gaddlee took the name 
of BUke. The motto of their ancoiton the Flts^ralds ie 
that of the Bodktna of the preeeut day. 

The Bodktne took an aotive part in the aflUn of Athemy 
in the time of Edwabd III. : many of the funily removed 
to Oalway in the auooeeding roign, that of Riohabd II., 
where they gave their name to a street, and at that early 
period Thomas Bodkin and his son Henry were, in and 
about the town, extensive proprietors. In 1465, John Bod- 
kin was oompositor of the customs. Members of the family 
were fk«quently elected provosts of Athenry ; Richard Bod- 
kin, a burgess of Oalway, was provost of Athenry in 14M. 
A groat many of the Aunily became mayors and Bheiifls 
for the town of Galway up to the time when it surrendered 
to Blr Charles Coote In 1662. So attached were they to their i 
i-ollglon and king, that not a single member of the Bodkin ! 
Aunily signed the ai'tioles of assent on that occasion ; it ' 
appears by the returns of the town-major of Galway to the ; 
commissioners of the Commonwealth, in 1662, that the 
repitieenutives of six of the Bodkin family refused to sign, 
and that ten others were absent. During the short reign 
of Jambs II., many of the ancient Roman Catholic fkmilies 
returned to Galway ; amongst them, Johk Bodkin Fits-

ILltttK^tt — ^There are fbwfamiliM in England which can 
b« traced, by means of authentic evidences, through so 
many centuries, as that of Bosvile. 

The eumame is found in England from nearly the time of 
the Conquest, when, in all probability, it was introduced. 
In a charter of Humphrey de Bohun, dated in 1126. a Wil- 
liam de Doevile appeai-s aa a witness. In a ohartulary of 
the abbey of Warden, in Bedfordshire, a William de Bi^svUe 
is spoken of as his knight by Geffrey de Maundevile, the 
Earl, that is, of Essex ; and Michael, son of William de 
Bosvile, was an early benefhctor to the same house. The 
senior branches, seated at New Hall, Darfleld, at Ounth- 
waite, oc. York, and at Bradboum, oo. Kent, are all now 
•xUnot in the male line.

fttlKagt* — ^The Bowdons of Bowdon Hall, nearChi^- 
en-le-Frith, co. Derby, were settled there, according to 
many writers, upwazda of four hundred years. Lysons 
mentions them as a very wealthy and andent fsmily. It is 
generally supposed that the Bowdons came over at the 
Conquest as the name Bodln or Bowdon appears on the 
roll of Battel Abbey. During the times of perseoutioii 
carried on against the Catholics, most of the fiamily p^)erB 
were either loet or destroyed, and we are therefore compelled 
to begin only at the year 1600, when

ECtieage.—Ormerod, in his able Hiitorp of ChtAire, 
mentions Oroerenor, DsTenport, and Brereton as "three 
grantees who can be proved by ancient deeds to have 
existed at or near the Conquest, though unnoticed in 
Domesday." Of these, the fiamily least fkvoored by forw 
tune in later times (the peerage and the baronetcy in th9 
Brsreton £unily haring both become extinct, and the heir- 
ship in lands and manors, in all the prindpal Wnglish lines, 
having descended to females) was, during the earlier cen- 
turies after the Conquest, among the most distinguished 
in the Palatinate ; and by its fortunate and splendid mar- 
riages became entitled to prefer for its issue the highast 
claims, even to ducal and regal descent. 

The Breretons appear to have arrived in England from 
Normandy with Wiluaic thc Cokqubbob, under Oilbeit 
or Oislebert de Venables, suraamed Venator (the hunterX 
afterwards Baron of Kinderton, in the retinue of Hu^^ 
Lupus, or Hugh d'Avranohes, nephew of the Cokqukbob, 
and afterwards Earl of Chester. 

After the Conquest, the manor of Brereton (called 
Bretone in Domesday) was one of the six dependencies of 
the Barony of Kinderton. Very shortly after this period, 
says Ormerod, " the manor of Brereton was granted to a 
family which assumed the local name, and was probably 
descended from the same stock as the Norman grantee of 
the Barony of Kinderton, if an opinion may be formed 
from the arms which the Breretens subsequently used, 
arg., two bars, sa., difiering only in tincture from the coat 
which the Barons of Kinderton had adopted.** And what 
seems a decisive test of consanguinity is, that upon any 
intermarriage of the Venables with the BrereUma, a dispen- 
sation was required. 

On these grounds it is inferred, that the first grantee of 
the manor of Brereton, who assumed the local name, was 
a Venables, or a youthful kinsman engaged in the Norman 
adventxue. What we find as a fact is, that, in reign of 
William Rufub, Ralf - de Brereton witnessed a deed of 
Gilbert de Venables, and was probably his esquire. 

The lineage of the direct line of the Bbebetohs of BrereUm 
Hatl, and the Irish branch descended therefhun, is to be 
found in Orroerod's NiHorjf qf ChetUr^ Lysons' Magwi 
Britannia^ Collins' Peerage, and Sir F. Dwarris' Memoin fif 
the Brereton Family. 

Fixran the branch seated at Shocklack and Malpas Hall, 
Cheshire, which separated from the elder branch of the 
family in the person of Sir Randle Brereton, of Ipstanee, 
descend the Bbcbbtoms qf Norfolk.

KtlfSffT. — ^The Brewsters are one of the oldest of our 
BMt Anglian families : in the c(mfinnation by Harvey, 
Ctaraioeux, a-d. 1661, of the original grant of arms (now 
in the possession of Cardinal Brewster, Esq. of Habtead, 
GasexX the house of Brewster is descrilfed as " most an- 
eient; " the date of original grant is not known. In a list 
«f the gentry of Norfolk, returned to King Henbt VII., 
Aj>. 148S, we find the name of GalfHdus Brewster, and 
in 1560, Sir J(dm Brewster died at Kirton, in Lincolnshire. 
Ibe fiunily became connected with the county of Suffolk at a 
stiU earlier period, for in 1376, John Brewster was witness 
to a deed relating to land in the parish of Henstead. In the 
early part of the reign of Edward IV., the manor of Wren- 
tham was ptirchased by this &mily ; and in 1550, Humphrey 
Brewster, Esq., built Wrentham Hall, which was occupied 
by his descendants until 1797, when on the death of ano- 
ther Humphrey Brewster, the estate was sold and the 
mansimi taken down. 

In the toaaty of Suflblk, this family ^possessed oonrider- 
aUe influence ; and in the great rebellion, became active 
partisans of the parliament Colonel Humphrey Brewster 
rated and commanded a troop of horse against the king ; 
and Bobett Brewster, Esq. of Wrentham Hall, sat for Dun- 
vkh in the Long Parliament.

one branch settled at Barking, in Essex, and possessed the 
manor of Withfidd, in Great Ilford, and the manor of 
Condovers, in West Tilbury; another branch was esta- 
blished at Castle Hedingham, in Essex. There was also a 
branch of the family which, in the reign of Elizabeth, 
owned land in Luddenham, Linstead, Lonham, Ospringe, 
and other parishes, in the cotmty of Kent ; another branch 
settled in Northamptonshire, in the reign of Charles I., 
where they possessed the manor of Welford, and other 
lands; and another branch, seated in Lincolnshire, gave 
birth to William Brewster, the ruling elder and chief pastor 
of the Pilgrim Fathers, who in 16i0 went to America to 
avoid the religious persecutions to which they were ex- 
posed in this country, and became the fbunders of New 
England. In 1655. Nathanid Brewster, of Aldby, in Nor- 
folk, was appointed chaplain to Henry Cromwell, lord- 
lieutenant of Ireland, and was actively engaged in the 
service of the parliament; and in the same year, Hugh 
Brewster and Frands Brewster were acting as commis- 
sioners for securing the peace of the commonwealth at 
Bury St. Edmunds; their correspondence with Cromwell 
and his secretary Thurloe may be seen in Thurloe's Stat* 
Paperi. In 1699, Sir Francis Brewster was appointed, in 
company with the Earl of Drogheda and others, a commis- 
sioner to take account of forfdted estates in Ireland. 

The Hedingham brandi of the Wrentham family settled
