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. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

Keport far the fear 190Q-19Q1. 

Recui at tlie Council Meeting field in the Audit Room of tlie 
Chetham Hospital, Manchester, November Isf, 1901. 



Since the last Annual Meeting, held on the 24th October, 1900, 
two volumes have been issued to the Members. These are volumes 
41 and 42. Volume 41 was ** Some Court Kolls of the Lordships, 
Wapentakes and Demesne Manors of Thomas, Earl of Lancaster, 
in the County of Lancaster, for the years 1323-4.** The manu- 
script was kindly presented to the Society by Mr. Farrer, a member 
of the Council, who also edited the volume. As Mr. Axon's 
** Quarter Sessions Kecords," promised in our last Annual Report 
as No. 41, was not ready, this volume of Court Rolls was substi- 
tuted and issued as the second volume for the year 1899-1900. 

Volume 42 was the first part of the "Manchester Quarter 
Sessions Records," and was edited by Mr. Ernest Axon in col- 
laboration with Mr. Charles Sutton. This has been issued as the 
first volume for the year 1900-1. 

The second volume for the same year, at present in the press, 
is a fourth volume of Miscellanies, a portion of which has been 
in type for some years. It contains (a) A List of Freeholders for 
Cheshire, 1578. (b) The Ordination Book of the Diocese of 
Chester, 1542-1558. (o) Index ta recently discovered Wills at the 



IV 



Report of the Society, 



Bishop's Registry, Chester, 1621-1700. The whole of items (a) 
and (6) are printed off and more than half of item (c), so that the 

Council hope to be able to issue this volume very shortly. 

As to future work the Council have again to tender their very 
cordial thanks to Mr. Farrer, who has ungrudgingly placed his 
splendid store of transcripts at their disposal. Mr. Farrer has not 
only presented the Society with the transcripts for another volume 
of Lancashire Fines to follow on volume 89, but has also kindly 
agreed to edit it. An interesting work, which the Council hope to 
issue at an early date, is the first portion of the ** Court Bolls of 
the Lordship of Halton/* which are being transcribed by Miss 
Ethel Stokes, who has also kindly undertaken the work of editing.

GENERAL PREFACE. 



The following Volume of Miscellanies was originally 
begun nearly eight years ago, and carried as far as the 
end of the second item, but owing to a question arising 
as to the Record-type used, it was arrested at that point, 
and for various other reasons has remained incomplete 
until the present. Some months ago, however, when it 
was found impossible to complete a volume which was to 
have been No. xliii of the Society's publications, the Council 
decided to issue this suspended volume of Miscellanies, to 
take the place of the one that had failed. The Council 
considered that under the circumstances, the members 
would probably be willing to receive the documents in 
their present form, even with the slight variations in the 
"peculiars," rather than that the Society should be put 
to the cost of reprinting the whole. 

^ The Ordination Book of the Diocese of Chester, a 
quarto book on paper, containing 208 pages, was no doubt 
originally Begun with the inception of the See in the 
Autumn of 1541, but the back has long ago perished, and 
with it the first one or two pages. The first entry is in 
the middle of the list of sub-deacons for the Easter 
Ordination in the year 1542, so probably one if not two 
Ordinations are missing. From this date until the end 
of the volume (17th December, 1558) the lists are apparently 
complete. 

There is, however, a curious break between the 
December Ordination in 1547 and the Easter Ordination 
in 1555. Unless the ordinations for this period were 
entered in another volume, which has since been lost, we 



^ In the Introduction to this item (p. 27), the Editor promised that 
a fall account would appear in the General Preface. He regress that the 
pressure of work there referred to, still obtains, so that the above short 
reference is all that it is possible to compile at present. 



vi PREFACE. 

must conclude that during this time none took place at 
Chester. A similar gap for an almost precisely similar 
period occurs at Durham.^ 

Mr. Frere suggests^ that the cessation was due to the 
introduction of the new Ordinal in 1550, or rather to 
the knowledge which existed as early as 1547 that changes 
were coming, a knowledge which did not carry approval 
with it among Cheshire and Lancashire men who were 
contemplating taking orders. 

That it was an actual cessation and not a mere fault 
in the record, is rather borne out by the fact that one of 
the deacons on folio 56, John Millington, appears to 
have been ordained priest, at London, in 1554,^ while a 
deacon on folio 58, dorso^ William Herdman, was not 
ordained priest until the ordination lists were resumed 
in 1555. 

The second volume of Ordinations at Chester begins 
in 1562, and continues with some gaps until the year 
161 1. It is hoped that the Society will ultimately print 
this also. From 161 1 until 1752 no ordination books are 
now to be found at Chester. 

The Index to Wills, etc., now preserved in the Diocesan 
Registry at Chester for the years 162 1-1700, is in con- 
tinuation of the Index published in the last Miscellaneous 
Volume (xxxiii), and has been compiled and edited by 
Mr. W. H. Price, whose excellent work is already known 
to most of the members. 

Of the three items, the first two are paged con- 
tinuously and have a common index, while the List of 
Wills has a separate pagination. The Editor takes this 
opportunity of tendering the Society's grateful thanks to 
John Gamon, Esq., the Registrar of the Diocese of Chester, 
for kind permission to transcribe and print the Ordination 
Book and the List of Wills.

INTRODUCTION. 




N the First Volume of Miscellanies the late Mr. 
Sl^\ Earwaker edited an interesting list of Freeholders 
in the County of Lancaster for the year 1600, and 
the Council have thought it desirable that a similar 
return for Cheshire should be printed. I have made a careful 
search for such a document and can find none so full and detailed 
as that drawn up in 1578, when, with troubles looming in the 
near future, Elizabeth called for a particular account of all her 
subjects in Cheshire who were liable to supply troops for land 
defence. In addition to this complete Catalogue of Land- 
owners we have an opportunity of comparing their relative 
standing in the numbers of the men they were expected 
to supply. 

The document itself, now at the Record Office, is evidently 
a fair copy made, from the returns sent up from the different 
hundreds, by a clerk not well acquainted with Cheshire 
names, for though the names of the leading people are usually 
correctly rendered, among those of the minor gentry are many 
obvious mistakes. Thus, in Wirral Hundred Richard Linacre 
or Linaker, of Grange, appears as " Lingarte,^' Neston is 
written Weston ; in Macclesfield Hundred, Shird appears 

as Shearle, Thornicroft as Shorincrofte ; in Northwick 

B 



2 INTRODUCTION. 

Hundred, Smethwick is disguised as Sanethwicke and so 
on. Doubtless there are several such errors scattered 
through the list, but they can usually be easily detected, and 
I merely mention this to put readers on their guard against 
placing a too implicit trust in the document. Where ex- 
planations are added in square brackets it has only been done 
when I have had thoroughly good evidence from other sources 
that such elucidations are the correct oaes. 

I may add that there are several incomplete lists for the 
period which are interesting to compare with this one and 
sometimes clear up difficulties. Such an one has been printed 
by Mr. J. Paul Rylands, in the Visitations of Cheshire, which 
he edited for the Harleian Society. Another is to be found 
among the Harleian Manuscripts, in No. 1988, and is for the 
following year, 1579.

INTRODUCTION. 



Owing to pressure of work, it has not been possible 
for me to write a suitable introduction to this interesting

a full account of it, together with some explanatory 
remarks, will be found in the General Preface to the
