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.

The manor of Haling, comprising a park and mansion, 
situate at the southern extremity of the town of Croydon, was 
thought by Ducarel* to have found its designation with our Saxon 
ancestors. Holy, in their language is haliT^y and meadow in^ — 
and from these two words he deduces Haling — holy-meadow, 
a supposition that is in some degree strengthened by the con- 
tiguity of this estate to the manor of Wodden — which he deduced 
with an equal degree of probability from their idol Woden. 

It is stated by Bray,^ but on no cited authority, that towards 
the close of the fifteenth century the manor of Haling was in the 
possession of Thomas Warham. Thomas Warham, citizen and 
carpenter of London, was one of the twelve principal inhabitants 
of Croydon, presenting to the chauntry of St. Mary in the 
church of that parish in 1458, and again in 1476,<^ and who 
appears, from an imperfect roll de anno 34 Henry VI. (1456), 
to have been professionally employed on the archiepiscopal re- 
sidence. In his will, dated 3rd September 1478, and proved in 
the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, on the 8th November 1481, 
he directs his body to be buried in the parish church of St. John 
the Baptist, at Croydon, in the chapel of St. Nicholas, " before 
the ymage of Our Lady of Pitie." In his will he makes mention 
of Ellen his wife, of his brother Richard and his two daughters —

The William Warham, whose estates are here enumerated, 
was either William Warham, Archdeacon of Canterbury, e 
who died in 1557, or his cousin Sir WDliam Warham, ^ of 

• William Warham was appointed Archdeacon of Canterbury in 1504, and had 
a papal dispensation for not proceeding to higher orders (than a deacon) for 
seven years, which dispensation was renewed in 1510 for six more. In 1515 he 
was appointed to the prebend of Brownswood in St. PauPs Cathedral ; he after- 
wards exchanged it for that of Newington, which he held till his death. In 1517 
he was collated to the rectory of Wrotham, Kent, which he resigned in 1532 for 
that of Harrow on the Hill, and that again he exchanged in 1537 for Hayes in 
Middlesex, which he held at his death. In 1520 he was appointed Provost of 
Wingham College, Kent. In 1527 he accompanied Cardinal Wolsey on his em- 
bassy to France ; and in 1532 his uncle the Archbishop died at his archidiaconal 
house at Heckington near Canterbury. After the accession of Cranmer to the 
archiepiscopal see, he was, in 1534, required to resign the Archdeaconry and the 
ProTOstship of Wingham, when he was assigned a pension of 60/. out of the former, 
and 20/. out of the latter. He died in 1557, on the 14th of October in which 
year a successor was appointed to the rectory of Hayes. Newcourt, and Hasted. 

' " It must be known now there was a young Knight called William Warham, 
godson and nephew to the Archbishop (as being son to his brother Hugh War- 
ham,) that waited upon him in his chamber : with him the Archb: being always 


Malsanger, in the parish of Oakley, Southampton, whose father 
Hugh Warham, Esq. was certainly a possessor of the estate, 
and appears to have resided here, as his pedigree is to be found 
in one of the early Visitations of the county .& This gentleman, 
styling himself of Malsanger,sold the manor with other lands in 
Wodden and Mitcham, by deed bearing date 1st March 1536, 
to Henry VIII. for the sum of 710/>

That Robert Warham was brother to the " citizen and car- 
penter," and consequently to his brother Richard, I infer from 
the arms on the tomb presumed to be in memory of Thomas 
Warham in Croydon church, which are those borne by his son 
Hugh, as of the third houseJ^ Tlie arms borne by Archbishop 
Warham were, Gu. a fess Or betw, a goat's head couped in 
chief and three escallops in base Arg.l Nicholas Warham bore 
the same, charged with a crescent of the second house^ all within 
a bordure engrailed Or ;°^ and Hugh Warham the same arms 
within a bordure Arg. charged with a mullet of the ihird house.^ 
Ilie absence of the names of Robert Warham and his family 
from the will of Thomas, also adds to the strength of my hypo-» 
thesis, that the former was the elder of the brothers, as he 
thus inherited an estate which placed him in a higher 
sphere than his brothers. It has always been stated by the 
biographers of Archbishop Warham that he was descended of 
an ancient family ; but, as the pedigrees inserted by its members 
in the various Heralds' Visitations have in no one instance been 
carried higher than his father, we may with safety esteem that 
assertion to be unfounded. 

In 1554 Queen Mary granted to Sir John Gage, K. G. the ma- 
nor of Haling, valued with its appurtenances in all issues beyond 
reprises at 15/. per ann., to be held by the said Sir John and his 
heirs by the tenure of knight's service in capite^ viz. for the. 
fortieth part of a knight's fee.® 

Sir John Gage, the grantee, died in 1558, at his residence at 
Firle, in the county of Sussex. By his wife, Philippa, daughter 
of Sir Richard Guildford, K. G., he left issue four sons and four 
daughters, of whom Robert his third son possessed the manor 
of Haling; and it is to this gentleman we are indebted for a 
memoir of his father, preserved, in the hand writing of his 
eldest son Sir Henry, among the MSS. of Sir Thomas Gage^ 
Bart, and which will be found printed in Collins's Peerage.

Of the said Robert Gage, of Haling, no further particulars 
have descended to us than the facts that he represented the bo- 
rough of Lewes in Parliament in 1533 ; enjoyed the favour of his 
sovereign ; married Elizabeth, eldest daughter of Nicholas Wil- 
ford, Esq. of London ; and died 20th October 1587 ; P leaving 
John his son and heir aged 24 years. His death was probably 
accelerated by the unhappy end of his second son Robert, who 
deeply feeling the tyrannical oppression under which his reli- 
gion suffered, he, after some solicitation, was persuaded by his 
young and accomplished friend, Anthony Babington, of Dethick, 
to join with him and other Catholic gentlemen of family and 
fortune in a plot, the object of which was the assassination of 
the Queen, and the liberation of Mary of Scotland from her con- 

The fortune which awaited this plot was no better than that 
which had visited so many of its forerunners, and the conspira- 
tors, whose names are too well known to require enumeration, — 
** Youths," in the words of D'Israeli, " worthy of ranking with 
the heroes, rather than with the traitors of England," — were soon 
driven to various disguises, and to various hiding places. To 
Charnock's residence in Westminster repaired Gage and Babing- 
ton, where having arrayed themselves in other clothing, they 
directly withdrew into St. John's wood, where they were shortly 
after joined by others of their companions. 

Having vainly endeavoured, whilst in this concealment, to 
obtain so small a sum as three crowns from the French Ambas« 
sador's secretary,*! and horses from Titchbourne, they wandered 
about from place to place, till hunger directed them to a house 
at Uxendon, near Harrow-on-the-Hill, the residence of a family 
zealously devoted to the Catholic faith, of the name of Bellamy. 
Here they were fed and clothed, and here they were discovered, 
concealed in barns and in the habiliments of countrymen. 

Returning more immediately to Gage, — he was taken in 
Charnock's apparel ; but appears, from his own account, to have 

P Inq. p. mort. taken at Croydon 10th Jan. 30 Eliz. 

4 " After flyinge, Babington imparted a Pre to Gage, w«^ he had written to the 
French Embassador's secretaries conteyninge that their doinges for the Sco. Q. 
were discou'ed, and requested him to be a means to lende him 3 crownes, and that 
the Q. his m**, viz. the Sco. Q. shoulde thank him in his behalf/* Harl. MSS. 
No. 6365. Dugdale (Life of Queen Elizabeth) mentions the attempt to borrow 
money, of which my quotation supplies the sum. 


withdrawn himself from his companions previous to his capture. 
On the 15th of September 1586, together with six other of the 
conspirators, he was arraigned before the Court at Westminster, 
tried, found guilty, as an accessory after the fact, and on the 2 1st 
of the same month, suffered the extreme penalty of the law at St. 
Giles's in the fields. 

John Gage, who succeeded to the estate, was scarcely less un- 
fortunate than his unhappy brother. Having concealed, proba- 
bly on his manor of Haling, a missionary priest of the name of 
Beesley,' he was arrested under the act 27th of Elizabeth, on a 
a warrant dated 10th January 1590, and committed to the Tower, 
there to await his trial.^ In durance he appears to have occupied 
the " Broad-arrow Tower," in which room, between the first and 
second recesses, on the left-hand side, is yet extant an inscrip- 
tion, apparently his work. 

In this confinement he was suffered to remain undisturbed till 
the 1st of July, when he was tried, convicted, and attainted, and as 
Beesly was executed on the following day, * it is not unlikely 
that they were arraigned together. Death, the common award 
of the Judges, was remitted on Gage — a mercy which he pur- 
chased by a long imprisonment. 

On the 17th February 1592, I find her Majesty issuing a com- 
mission, directing Sir Francis Carew, Knt. Edmund Bowyer, 
and John Ownsted, Esqrs. and Robert Moyse, Ilichard Hop- 
kins, and Edmund Farrant, gentlemen, to hold an inquisition 
on the estate hereby forfeited, which estate, from the return of 
the Commissioners dated 20th March following, comprised :

Alices die wife of John Barret, and Margery, the wife of John 
Maffisam, and of Annis the daughter of his nephew William 
Warham deceased. In 1543 (34 Henry VIIL) certain lands 
of Thomas Warham were held by William Wilde, gentleman, 
in r^t of his wife Dorothy, the o%ring of an incestooos 
marriage between Jane, daughter and heir of the before-men- 
tioned John Barret, and Thomas Morley, son of his widow 
by her seomd husband Robert Morley. In a complaint made to 
Archbishop Warham, then Archbishop of Canterbury, by certain 
tenants holding lands under the said Wilde, that they had been 
then lately threatened with an ejectment, and praying his interfer- 
ence, as lord of the manor of Croydon, this marriage — as contrary 
to the laws both of God and the King — ^is urged against the right 
of his wife to the lands of her maternal grandfather John Barret, 
and his wife's uncle Thomas Warham. It is also here noticed, 
that, as the latter made no surrender of any part of his copyhold 
lands to the use of his brother Richard or his children before 
mentioned, or to the use of any other person, according U> 
the custom of the manor, the said copyholds had reverted to 
the lord, and were consequently unjustly held by the said Wilde 
and his predecessors from the time of Warham's death. 

From this paper, indorsed, ^' The pedigree & other things 
concemyng Wild," and preserved in the Chapter House of 
Westminster, the following pedigree is compiled, with some 
assistance from the will mentioned above.

The William Warliam, whose estates are here enumerated, 
was either William Warham, Archdeacon of Canterbury,® 
who died in 1557, or his cousin Sir WDliam Warham, ^ of 

< William Warham was appointed Archdeacon of Canterbury in 1504, and had 
a papal dispensation for not proceeding to higher orders (than a deacon) for 
seven years, which dispensation was renewed in 1510 for six more. In 1515 he 
was appointed to the prebend of Brownswood in St. PauPs Cathedral ; he after- 
wards exchanged it for that of Newington, which he held till his death. In 1517 
he was collated to the rectory of Wrotham, Kent, which he resigned in 1532 for 
that of Harrow on the Hill, and that again he exchanged in 1537 for Hayes in 
Middlesex, which he held at his death. In 1520 he was appointed Provost of 
Wingham College, Kent. In 1527 he accompanied Cardinal Wolsey on his em- 
bassy to France ; and in 1532 his uncle the Archbishop died at his archidiaconal 
house at Heckington near Canterbury. After the accession of Cranmer to the 
archiepiscopal see, he was, in 1534, required to resign the Archdeaconry and the 
ProYostship of Wingham, when he was assigned a pension of 60/. out of the former, 
and 20/. out of the latter. He died in 1557t on the 14th of October in which 
year a successor was appointed to the rectory of Hayes. Newcourt, and Hasted. 

' " It must be known now there was a young Knight called William Warham, 
godson and nephew to the Archbishop (as being son to his brother Hugh War* 
ham,) that waited upon him in his chamber : with him the Archb: being always

withdrawn himself from his companions previous to his capture. 
On the 15th of September 1586, tc^ether with six other of the 
conspirators, he was arraigned before the Court at Westminster, 
tried, found guilty, as an accessory after the fact, and on the 2 1st 
of the same month, suffered the extreme penalty of the law at St, 
Giles's in the fields. 

John Gage, who succeeded to the estate, was scarcely less un- 
fortunate than his unhappy brother. Having concealed, proba- 
bly on his manor of Haling, a missionary priest of the name of 
Beesley,"* he was arrested under the act 27th of Elizabeth, on a 
a warrant dated 10th January 1590, and committed to the Tower, 
there to await his trial .^ In durance he appears to have occupied 
the " Broad-arrow Tower," in which room, between the first and 
second recesses, on the left-hand side, is yet extant an inscrip- 
tion, apparently his work. 

In this confinement he was suffered to remain undisturbed till 
the 1st of July, when he was tried, convicted, and attainted, and as 
Beesly was executed on the following day, * it is not unlikely 
that they were arraigned together. Death, the common award 
of the Judges, was remitted on Gage — a mercy which he pur- 
chased by a long imprisonment. 

On the 17th February 1592, I find her Majesty issuing a com- 
mission, directing Sir Francis Carew, Knt. Edmund Bowyer, 
and John Ownsted, Esqrs. and Robert Moyse, Richard Hop- 
kins, and Edmund Farrant, gentlemen, to hold an inquisition 
on the estate hereby forfeited, which estate, from the return of

Six days after the date of this return, the manor, lands, and 
tenements therein specified, were let by the Crown to Charles 
Lord Howard, of Effingham, Lord High Admiral of England, 
who was already in possession of the mansion, for the tenii of 
twenty-one years, at a rent of 15/. per ann.,^ and who, about the 
expiration of his lease, obtained a renewal for a like term for the 
same rent, dated 3rd March 1612.* Haling was now one of the 
*' seven standing houses " mentioned by Fuller as maintained by 
this sumptuous nobleman.y 

Here his brother Sir William Howard, to whom he was 
greatly attached, breathed his last on the 1st of September 1600; z

and here his second son Charles, afterwards third and last Earl 
of Nottingham of the family of Howard, was born 25th of De- 
cember 1610;* and here also the Admiral himself committed 
his soul unto God, at the great age of 87, on the 14th of De- 
cember 1624. 

Reverting to the unfortunate lord of the manor. The date 
of his emancipation does not appear; but the birth of his 
eldest son Henry in 1597, leads us to suppose that at 
that time he was at large. The lady by whom he had this 
son, and other children hereafter to be mentioned, was Mar- 
garet, eldest daughter of Sir Thomas Copley, Knt. of Gatton, 
Surrey ; and to her — from the rank of her family— I should ima- 
gine he was united prior to his misfortunes, — more especially as 
he was afterwards compelled to subsist on the charity of his kin- 

This lady was now dead ; and, low as his finances of necessity 
must then have been, they were not such as to deter him from 
leading to the altar a second wife — a lady of the name of Barnes. 
This was previous to the 21st of February 1621, as the second 
son of this lady, Francis, afterwards President of the English 
college at Douay, was born on that day. 

Bowed down as he was by misfortune, yet in the piety of his 
eldest son he found a mitigation of his troubles. This gentleman, 
with a disinterestedness rarely to be met with, voluntarily relin- 
quished to his parent, as a means of removing his pecuniary dif- 
ficulties, the reversion of the forfeited manor, " waiving all re- 
spect of wrong to himselfe, or prejudice to his wife and chil- 
dren." c Accordingly, in the names of Sir John Gage, Baronet, 
of Firle, John Gage, Esq. and Henry Gage, he alienated by in- 
denture, dated 12th July 1626, the fee simple of the estate to 
Christopher Gardiner, Esq. of Dorking, Surrey, in considera- 
tion of the sum of 2,350/. He did not long survive the sale ; 
dying at Croydon on the 6th of December following. ^ 

In his will, proved 3d January 1627, and dated 4th December 
1625, five months previous to his obtaining that property which 
he there demises, and wherein he describes himself of Clerken-

well,® in the county of Middlesex; he bequeaths to his wife 800/. 
in performance of a covenant entered into at his marriage, in which 
he is bound to endow her with that sum during his life, and, in de- 
fault thereof, to bequeath it heron his death. He also bequeaths 
her an annuity of 16/. and a mark, with the further sum of 10/. 
being a debt due to him from the Lord Montacute. To his son 
Henry he bequeaths the sum of 300/. and his lands at Mitcham, 
— ^a sum, the smallness of which he deems it necessary to apolo- 
gize for, by stating that he had previously paid a debt of 400/. 
for the said Henry, and further that he had received " no pro- 
fit** from his said son's marriage, " as fathers used to doe." Pass- 
ing over his second son, Thomas, who had displeased him, he 
bequeaths to his son George 40/., and to his three younger sons, 
John, Francis, and Robert, 200/. each, to be disposed of ac- 
cording to their mother's direction. To his daughter Helen he 
bequeaths an annuity of 20/. per ann. payable out of the manor 
of Arundel, by the Earl of Arundel. Item. Two pair of sheets 
and one dozen napkins, marked with the initials of himself and 
wife, " I. M. G." To his daughter Mary 200/. He also gives 
directions for the payment of his debts, viz. To Sir John Gage, 
Bart. 50/. ; to his cousin Blackwell,^ 10/., and to Roger How 20/. 

Of his family, by his first wife, he had three sons and one 
daughter, viz. Sir Henry, a Colonel under the King in the civil 
wars, and sometime governor of Oxford, who was killed at Cul- 
lum-bridge, near Abingdon, January 7th, 1644 ; Thomas, author 
of "Travels in Spane," &c.; George, D.D. prothonotary in Eng- 
land for the See of Rome ; and Mary, the wife of Thomas Cold- 
ham, of Midhurst, Sussex. By his second lady, who survived 
him, he left issue in the same proportion : John, author of " The 
Christian Sodality; or Catholic Hive of Bees;" Francis, D.D. 
before-mentioned ; Robert ; and Helen. 

Although I can find no authority in the church registers of the 
parish, for assigning Haling as the birthplace of John and Ro- 
bert Gage, still it is more than probable that the brothers were na- 

* He probably resided in the house of his kinsman Sir John Gage, Bart, in the 
parish of St. John's, ClerkenweU. 

' William BUckwell married Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Wilford, Esq. of 
Wandsworth, Surrey, Treasurer of London and President of the Company of 
Spanish Merchants, whose sister Elizabeth had married Robert Gage, as before 


lives of this place. Yet, if in this authority the names above-* 
mentioned are absent, there are to be found in it those of other 
children of the same father — names which till now were un- 
known to the pedigree of this ancient family. — Mary, christened 
3 Oct. 1563; Elizabeth, 3 March 1564; Edward. 26 Aug. 1567; 
and William, 3 Oct. 1568. 

Returning to the manor. In the octaves of Hilary, 2nd 
Charles I. a suit was instituted in the Exchequer by Christopher 
Gardiner, Esq. of Croydon, to recover the manor of Haling; in 
support of which claim, he alleged that John Gage being at the 
time of the felony seised in fee tail, and having, in conjunction 
with his son Henry, by a bargain and sale enrolled, and a fine 
and recovery levied (17th January 1627), conveyed the reversion 
of the estate to him, the said Christopher Gardiner, he was en- 
titled to possession of the said manor from the death of the said 
John Gage, freed from the unexpired term of the lease granted 
by the Crown to the Earl of Nottingham. In all which points 
he succeeded by the judgment of the

The estate remained in the family of Gardiner till July 1707, 
when it was conveyed by its representative to Edward Stringer, 
Esq. He died in 1710, and from his widow, who married for 
her second husband William Parker, Esq. it has descended (as 
shewn in the preceding pedigree) to its present possessor, Wil- 
liam Parker Hamond, Esq. great-grandson of that lady. 

There are now no courts held for this manor. 

Notes to the Pedigree of Gardmer of Peckham. 

* In CamberweU churchyard was formerly this epitaph on a hirge black marble 
slab : " Here lieth buried Sir Thomas Gardyner, Knt. the servant of Jesus Christ.'* 

t This William Gardiner, having married Anne, dau. of Simon Hastings, esq. 
of Dailsford, co. Wore, died Jan. 1, 1632, set. 26, and was buried at that place. 
(See his epitaph in Nash's Worcestershire, toL i. p. 287.) He left a son WiUiam 
Gardiner, 4 months old 1632, (Esc. 8 Chas. I.) which William, or William his son, 
sold the rectory of Ewell 1690. Hist and Antiq. of Surrey, i. 470. 

X The husband of Anne Gardiner, Henry Bard, Viscount Bellamont, was 
an adventurous cavalier, who obtained rank and title from King Charles I. at a 
time when that monarch could not easily refuse such rewards to those who were 
solicitous to obtain them, and at the same time were zealous in his service. Some 
singular anecdotes of him are related in Wood's Fasti Oxon, (edit Bliss,) ii. 67, 
and he is also noticed in Lloyd's Worthies ; and Cole, in a memoir in his MS. 
history of King's College, Camb. (MS. Addit. Brit Mus. 1716, p. 137) endeavours 
to place bis character in a more favourable view than that of the needy adventurer, 
depicted by Wood. He was a son of the Rev. George Bard, who died Vicar of 
Staines in Middlesex in 1616 ; and he had himself a Fellowship of King's College, 
which he resigned on hit marriage in 1645. He was knighted Nov. 22, 1643 ; 
created a Baronet Oct. 8, 1644, being then styled " of Staines;" and a Peer of 
Ireland July 8, 1G46, by the titles of Baron Bard, of Drombeg, co. Down (not 
Brombry, as in Wood), and Viscount Bellamont. He appears to have been parti- 
cularly favoured by the notice of Prince Rupert ; and was appointed to lead off the 
left tertia with Sir George Lisle at the field of Naseby. He died whilst Ambassa- 
dor in Persia about the year 1660 ; leaving behind him, says Wood, ** a widow, not 
so rich, but that she received relief upon her petition after his Majesty's return, 
from King's Coll. in Cambridge, and two daughters, who were of his religion 
[Roman Catholic], one of which was afterwards mistress to Prince Rupert." 
Dudley Bard, the issue of that connection, was killed at the siege of Buda in 
16H6, aged scarcely twenty, and is further noticed by Wood, Fasti (by Bliss)!. 490. 
Persiana, a daughter of the Viscount, married Nathaniel Bard, Esq. whose heiress 
married Henry llarcourt, Esq. (see Clutterbuek's Herts, i. 285.)

AND WALES, IN 1647. 

fMS. Rawlimon 240.) 

The date of the following Survey, which is printed from a MS. pre- 
served in the Rawlinson collection^ in the Bodleian library> may be ascer- 
tained from the following notices. In the Act passed by the Parlia- 
ment^ 9 Oct. 1 646^ for abolishing of Archbishops and Bishops, and 
vesting their lands in Trustees, the Trustees are empowered to appoint 
from time to time fit and able persons to survey the premises, to hold 
Courts of Surveys, and to demand and receive all the evidences and 
title deeds relative to the same. The form of an oath to be taken by 
each Surveyor is also prescribed. (Scobell, pt. i. p. 1 00.) In the 
Ordinance which followed, 1 6 Nov. of the same year, it is further ordered 
that the Surveyors should make returns of their Surveys from time to 
time to Henry Elsyng, Esq. Clerk of the House of Commons, who was 
to make entry of such returns^ and also to have the custody of the 
evidences concerning the lands, (ib. p. 106.) The powers given to 
these Surveyors are there stated at length, by which any three or more 
of them were to examine on oath, to compel the production of writings 
and evidences, and to commit to prison all such persons as refused, 
(ib. pp. 106, 107.) Their Instructions are annexed to the Ordinance 
by which such Surveys as shall be made by them are declared to be 
''good and effectual.'* (ib. p. 1 10.) On the 24th of December follow- 
ing an Act passed for the alteration and explanation of the oath ap- 
pointed to be taken by the Surveyors, by which each is to swear as 
follows, '* I shall use my best endeavour and skill to discover the estate 
therein [viz. the Ordinance for the sale of Bishops' Lands] mentioned, 
and every part thereof which shall be given me in charge, and to finde 
out the true values and improvements thereof, and thereof shall make 
true Surveys, according to my best skill and cunning ^ and the same 
from time to time deliver in writing closely sealed up, unto Henry 
Elsing, Esquire, Register in that behalf appointed, together with a true 
copy or duplicate thereof, likewise close sealed up, unto the said Trus- 
tees." This Survey therefore must have been made between Januai-y 
1646-7 and July 1647, when the sale of the episcopal lands commenced. 
It must also be remarked, that the document here printed only contains

The following article describes that part of a volume in the Harleian 
Library a which contains sketches of Banners^ Standards, and Badges of 
the English Monarchs from Edward III. to Henry VIII. and of the 
nobility and gentry in the latter reign. These sketches appear to have 
been executed between the years 1522 and 1534, the volume beginning 
with the arms of Christopher Barker as Richmond Herald,^ and the 
badge of Wriothesley being given as that of ''Master Garter.** The 
early part of the volume is a collection of arms arranged somewhat 
in the manner of an ordinary, but the portion which is here described 
commences on folio 209, and concludes at 225 B. It is very probably 
a transcript from some more highly finished book of drawings which is 
at present unknown. A very finely drawn collection of the same period 
stiU exists in the College of Arms, marked I. 2, part of which has been 
described in the Retrospective Review, and the continuation in the 
" Excerpta Historica,** page 50 3 but the two collections differ, not only 
in the names of the parties to whom the Standards belonged, but also 
in the bearings of those Standards ascribed to the same persons. 

With the Standards now given are drawings of a considerable number 
of badges and crests, the last being distinguished by being placed on 
wreaths or in coronets. It is not unlikely that, in this part, the artist 
may have contented himself with sketching the charges on other Stan- 
dards, instead of continuing, as he at first began, drawings of the whole 
Standards themselves. They are, however, extremely curious, as but 
few memorials remain to us of family badges. In the Archseologia c are 

• No. 4632. fol. 309—225. 

^ The volume belonged to Barker, and appears to have been written for the greater 
part in his own hand. On folio 1 is the following entry, " M'*. that the iij*' day 
of September, the ziiij yer of the Regne of our soveren King Henry the viij. the 
ordinacio of Sancti Gregori, being Wednesday and Sanct Cuthberti Even, betwene 
T of the cloke and vi was borne my sone Justeniaen, at aftemone, in my hows in 
paternoster row, the name of his godfathers Master Doctur Cokes, Chanceler to my 
Lord of Canturberry, and Master Luopton, Doctur of Arches, and godemoder 
Mastres Asheley, at the beshoppyng Master Potkyn godfader. An" Mv'^xxij." The 
arms of Barker are quarterly, 1 and 4, Argent, three bears' heads erased, two and 
one, Gules, muzzled Or, in chief three Torteaux ; 2 and 3, Argent, on a chevron 
Sable between three ravens Proper, as many estoils Or, for * Carllyll.* " 

« Vol. xxi. p. 89. 

VOL. 111. E 


printed some political verses of the time of Richard the Second, and in 
the ** Excerpta Historica," d others of the time of Henry the Sixth, in 
all of which the personages are designated by their several badges. 
The Retrospective Review e contains also a list of Badges used about the 
15th of King Edward the Fourth, and another of the year 1513/ the 
fifth of Henry the Eighth j these, with the book of Standards in the 
College of Arms alluded to above, the Royal Badges given in the *' Regal 
Heraldry,** and the miscellaneous collection in the Retrospective Re- 
view,? comprise all that has been published on the subject. 

The use on seals of an heraldic figure distinct from the arms or crest, 
is extremely common at a very early date, and appears to have been 
generally used for the purpose of showing the descent or affinity of the 
bearer to other families, as the annulet of Vipont used by Clifford, and 
the garb of Chester by Lacy, afterwards shewn by quartering the whole 
arms of heiresses with the paternal coat. Sometimes the badges were 
punning allusions to the bearer*s name, as the long sword of Longespee, 
and the plantagenesta of Plantagenet. In the reign of King Edward 
the Third family badges were used with profusion to decorate the 
dresses, caparisons, furniture, and utensils 3 and although the tourna- 
ments sometimes presented a device fancifully adopted for the particular 
ceremony, still the principal houses, in imitation of the royal family, had 
a distinctive mark for their retainers^ which was no doubt at that time 
as well or better known than the personal arms or crest of their Lord. 

About the time of Richard the Second, supporters became in use 
among the higher orders, and these appear to have been generally 
selected in the same manner as the badges had been. The severity of 
King Henry the Seventh against the practice of keeping large numbers 
of retsdners, must have much contracted the use of badges ; and the 
usual fashion of Elizabeth*s time, which was to adopt for the tournament 
some fanciful and far-fetched deiice from classical or fabulous history, 
frequently changed at each pageant, tended still more to throw the an- 
cient distinctions into disuse. Many of them were then placed on wreaths 
as crests, and have thereby been much confounded with them. There are 
now very few of our nobility who continue the use of the badge dis- 
tinctly 3 but they are still retsdned by some charitable foundations, and 
the yeomen of the King's Guard wear them as in the time of Henry the 
Eighth. The following collection, with those already printed, may 
serve to make these interesting family distinctions more known to their

The banners of Brut^ Arthur, and the other worthies with which 
the collection begins, were frequently displayed in pageants and trium- 
phal processions 3 others might have been assigned^ and perhaps were, 
with quite as much truth and propriety, to the Cardinal Virtues and the 
heroes of Heathenism.

the Seine, the Pavilion of Charles was decorated on the top, by '* a whyte harte 
flying, made all of fyne silver, with wings enamelled/' This King is said to have 
adopted this device at the early part of his reign ; and Anstis seems to infer that it 
might be the origin of the white hart of Richard the Second.

This badge had been used by his grandfather Lewis of Orleans. Menestrier 
says it was part of the armorial bearings of Blois. According to Sauval, *' Antiq. 
de Paris,*' the Celestins preserved the helmet of Charles, Duke of Orleans, father 
of Louis XII. round which was a collar of the order of the Porcupine ; and also 
one of his banners, which was repainted in 1554, by order of Henry II. ; the 
device on it was a porcupine lancing his quills, suspended from a wreath burning 
at both ends; round which, on a white ribband, was written, " Ma Yolont^.'* 

' Charles Count d'Angoulesme, father of Francis I. had used the salamander 
as his badge, with the motto ''Nutrisco et extinguo.'* On the tapestry at 
FontainebleaUi of the time of Francis, the Salamander was accompanied by this

i In Westminster Hall, now in the course of restoration by Sir Robert Smirke, 
the ornaments have been admirably perfected by Mr. Nichol, wit^ strict attention 
to the style and spirit of the ancient work. The large trusses under the principals, 
are richly sculptured ; alternately with the arms of King Edward the Confessor 
between two stags , ducally gorged and chained ; and with the quartered arms of 
France, ancient, and England, between two lions. These animals can scarcely be 
called supporters, but they are evidently a commencement of those additions to 
the heraldic escutcheons. 

The string course that connects the trusses, has two kinds of enrichments ; one the 
crest of the lion guardant, crowned, standing on a chapeau, which is placed on a hel- 
met ; the other the badge of the stag, ducally gorged and chained ; these are alter- 
nated. There are some curious variations in both figures ; the crest is sometimes 
placed in front of three ostrich feathers, in other places between two of them ; and 
one instance occurs of a single feather appearing behind the lion ; in another, the 
crest and helmet are placed on a square tablet, formed of clouds. The stag is 
usually lodged on a single row of nebulae, with ornamental foliage springing from 
behind ; this foliage is in some places distingi^hed as oak with acorns ; or as a 
rose bush ; or terminates in fleurs-de-lis. In one instance the shape of the tree is 
the same in form as that on the seal of the hind, used by John Holland Earl of Hunt- 
ingdon. The stag is in one instance placed in a four-wheeled cart, as if on his way 
to the chase ; in another he is pulled down by dogs ; in a third he is lodged , the 
end of his chain being held by a *' woodhouse,*' or wild man, who bears a club over 
his shoulder. In the whole series especial care has been taken to distinguish the 
crest from the badge ; the lion invariably being placed on a helmet.

1 When Henry, as Duke of Hereford, appeared at the lists against Thomas 
Mowbray Duke of Norfolk, his bands were blue and green, embroidered with swans

■ Walter Hungerford, Steward of the Household to King Henry the Fifth, 
received a grant of the Castle and Barony of Homet in Normandy, by the service of 
providing to the King and his heirs at the Castle of Rouen, a lance with a fox's 
tail hanging from it ; and Monstrelet mentions that at a magnificent entry of Henry 
into that city, a fox's brush was fastened as a pennon to the end of a lance, carried 
by a page superbly mounted, the circumstance, he says, occasioned much talk at 
the time.

The pedigree of the Baronial Family of Mautravers or Maltravers^ 
owing to the frequent repetition of a favourite name, has ever been a 
source of much perplexity to the genealogist. Not only has the patro- 
nymic of John descended from generation to generation, but in two 
instances we find it borne by brothers, increasing exceedingly the 
difficulty coDjiplained of. Thus the history of a family, conspicuous in 
the criminal annals of our country by the participation of one of its 
members in the murder of his Sovereign (Edward the Second), and 
again in the death of the brother of that Sovereign (the Earl of Kent)^ 
has been buried in the tomb of obscurity. 

The following table comprises the whole of the genealogical informa- 
tion given in Dugdale*s Baronage. 

John Maltravers, ob. 24 £dw. I. 

r-^ T 

Fonn Lord Matravers senior, St. 30,^Agiies, widow of Johii de Argcn.

Henry. Joan, w. of Sir John de Maud, wife of Elizabeth, mar. to Hum- 

Kaynes. Peter de la phrey, son of Sir Hum- 

Alianor, w. of Sir John Mare. V^^l Stafford. 

In this very imperfect and erroneous genealogy a generation is 
omitted between the first and second descents ; and another between 
the second and John Maltravers of Hooke. It is true that fuller infor- 
mation has since been published in Hutchins's Dorsetshire^ where a 
pedigree of Maltravers,* of litchet, will be found in vol. iii. p. 19, and 
one of Maltravers, of Hooke, in vol. ii. p. 492 1 but the former of these 
is much confused by the introduction of the wife of John Maltravers, of 
Melbury Sampfolrd, temp. Ric. II. to the side of John his great-grand- 
father, temp. Edw. II. which error is partly, but not wholly, removed in 
Banks*s Extinct Peerage \ whilst the last-named author acknowledges 
himself to be entirely at a loss respecting the Melbury Sampford

At the east end of Paternoster Row stood the church of St. Michael 
le Querne, in front of which " by PauFs-gate ** was a Conduit. '* Wil- 
liam Eastfield, Maior, the ninth of Henry the Sixths at the request of 
divers Common-Councels> granted it to be ; whereupon^ in the 19. of 
the same Henry^ 1000. Markes was granted by a Common -Councell> 
towards the workes of this Conduit^ and the reparations of other. This 
is called the Little Conduit in West Cheap, by Paul's Gate." Stow's 
Survey^ fol. 1633^ p 388. The hall of the Minor Canons was situated 
on the north side of Pardon Church-yard, which was on the north side 
of the Cathedral Church, east of the Bishop's palace $ and consequently 
in the immediate neighbourhood of the Conduit. See the Appendix to 
Dugdale's St. Paul's, No. xxxv.

The Constitutions and Ordinances of this Gild^ together with some 
particulars of its foundation^ will be found in the Gentleman's Magazine 
for Feb. 1835 -, and some extracts from the Gild Ledger in that for 
April. The originals of the following documents are in the possession 
of the Corporation of Stratford. 

Indenture relative to the foundation of a Dree Grammar School, 

Leiand says, this Grammar School was "of the foundation of one 
Jolepe, Mr. of Arts, borne in Stratford ; '* which is repeated without 
further information in Dugdale's History of the County. By the fol- 
lowing indenture the founder's name will be shown to have been 
Thomas Jolyffe -, but it is remarkable that a schoolmaster is mentioned 
in the document which follows, at the earlier period of the beginning of 
the previous reign. The School is not noticed in Carlisle's History of 
the Grammar Schools of England and Wales. It was directed to be 
maintained by the Corporation in the charter granted to the town in 
7 Edw. VL

is much disfigured by ponderous and unsightly galleries, which 
extend over the whole length of the nave^ which is upwards of 
sixty feety and over the spacious transepts, as well as block up 
some of the arches of the chancel.* 

The tower is supported by four lofty pointed arches springing 
from piers having the remains of rich clustered capitals, but the 
beauty of these arches is in some measure obscured by the 

The transepts are separated from the side ailes of the chancel 
by very broad pointed arches, resting on octangular columns 
with plain capitals. The chancel has on each side three pointed 
arches in the style of Henry the Fourth's time. 

The ceiling of the chancel and choir is of oak paneling ; and 
that of the Oteley aile is beautifully carved, and the intersections 
of the beams adorned with bosses and various devices, the dif- 
ferent compartments having nebule quatrefoils. 

The eastern window is filled with some modern stained glass, 
beautifully executed by Mr. David Evans, of Shrewsbury, at the 
expense of Robert Clarke, Esq. It consists of figures of St. 
Paul and the four Evangelists, the arms of David Prince of 
Wales and Emma dau. of King Henry II., Llewellyn the Great 
and Joan natural daughter of King John ; Le Strange impaling 
Ferrers ; Le Strange inpaling Ingham ; Egerton quartering 
Bassett ; the see of Lichfield ; and various other devices.^ This 
was erected in 1829; and in the year 1834 the chancel was 
enriched with two other windows of stained glass by the liberality 
of the same benefactor, and the work of the same able artist. 
That on the south side contains, in its central division, the armo- 
rial bearings of the late Earl of Bridgewater and his Countess, 
above which is placed the badge of Henry the Seventh, and be- 
neath the arms of the Isle of Man. In the first light are the 

* The pews in these gaUeries are freehold property, and of course only available 
by purchase from the respective possessors ; otherwise, if the nave was taken 
down and rebuUt with the addition of side ailes, the Church would more conveni- 
ently accommodate a larger congregation, as weU as afford a good situation for the 
organ, which is much wanted.

vol. XCIX. pt. ii. p* 115. 


coats of Le Strange, Bassett of Blore, Stanley, and Egerton ; 
and in the third those of Mortimer, Brandon impaling Clifford^ 
Grey, and Byron. The arch of the window contains the arms 
of Sir John Kynaston, Bart, and C. K. Mainwaring, Esq. of 
of Oteley. 

The small window on the north side has the armorial bearings 
of the present Vicar, — the Rev- J. A. Cotton, A. Matthews (of 
Lyth), T. B. Owen, and E. Dymock, Esquires. 

At the further end of the gallery over the south transept is a 
diminutive organ, made by John Snetzler, but very powerful and 
sweet in its tone. In the tower is a peal of eight bells. 

The Church is in length 138 feet, of which the nave is 64 ft., 
the space imder the tower 24 ft., and the chancel 50 ft., breadth 
of nave and transepts 80 ft. 

Ellesmere Church appears never to have been rich in ancient 
memorials. Against the south-west wall of the Oteley chancel 
is a recumbent figure, which from its battered appearance (having 
sometime been exposed to the weather) seems at first sight to be 
of great antiquity, but a little examination will not assign it to a 
very remote period ; it appears to be the figure of a knight cut 
in stone, and resting on a shallow basement from the floor, above 
which are the remains of a shield surmounted by the helmet and 
mantle. Though the person whom this figure was intended to 
represent is unknown, yet, from a lion passant guardant appear* 
ing on the shield, it may throw some light on the subject to 
mention, that the Kynastons of Oteley in Shropshire quartered 
these arms from the marriage of an heiress of Edward ap Mor- 
gan, of Alrhey. 

At the eastern end of the same chancel is a fine altar-tomb, on 
which are recumbent figures of marble, much mutilated, with the 
following inscription on the ledge : 


At the head of the monument are the following quarterings in 
marble, the colours of which are destroyed: 1. A lion rampant; 
2. A chevron engrailed between three mullets; 3. On a chevron 


three mullets ; 4. On a chief a raven ; 5. A chevron engrailed ; 
6. A lion passant guardant ; 7. On a bend three garbs. 

In the same aile a long oblong tablet bears the following in- 
scription :

" The Armes & Pedigrees of the Chamberlaines, descended from

arms of John de Millaine, Earl of Leicester, were Gules, an 
escocheon between 8 mullets, as Sir Edwd Feme and Mr. Bramp- 
ton, two of the most ancient writers of Heraldry, agree. Count 
John de Tankervile had issue John, who had issue Richard, 
Lord Chamberlayne to King Stephen ; at which time surnames 
began in England, whereupon Richard assumed the name of

Norfolk, and much more lands in that and other Countys. She 
was accounted the greatest female heir in England, and had 
many of the nobility of England suitors to her, but she refused 
all, and took this great Commander, who was fain to ask leave of 
Edward the 3^^ to be a suiter to her before he went, and then 
addressed her with one hundred men in white armour mounted 
on stately horses, accoutred in warlike manner, and summoned 
East Harling Castle ; she delivered up both herself and Castle to 
S^ John Chamberlayn. There is one of his family now at 
Barnam Brome, near Norwich ; after his decease his Lady 
marryed with the Lord Scrope, from whom the Scropes family 
descended, and afterwards to Beneiield of Norfolk ; but she 
chosed and ordered herself to be buryed by her husband Cham- 
berlayne ; ^ there is a large history of this on the tomb of Cham- 
berlayne and his lady in East Harling Church, and in the window 
of the great chambre in the said Castle, but all to this effect. 

" The kindred and allyes of the house of the Chamberlayns of 
Gloucestei'shire were so numerous that one Dean Hurst, Rector 
of Burton on the Water, in the County of Gloucester, made a 
catalogue of the kindred and allyes, only in Glocestershire, where 
he found neare allyed to that family one hundred Gentlemen of 
SOOl. p. ann. ; 100 Gent'^ of 200/. p. ann. ; and 100 Gent^ of 
100/. p. ann., besides many of much greater estates, and also 
saith that there cou'd not be a Jury of Gent^ returned in Glo- 
cestershire but that one of them must be allyed to that family. 
This catalogue was found among Deane Hurst's writings after 
his deaths about the year 1600." 

^ He and bis wife in 1457 settled 9 marks annual rent, issuing out of Falconars 
manor, on the chantry priests who officiated in Sir Robert Herling's Chapel; 
according to Lis will, he was buried in a fine arched monument with his wife» on the 
north side of the chancel of East Herling in Norfolk. — See vol. I. of the present

St. Andrew's Priory at Tywardreth, situated about half way between 
Lostwithiel and Fowey, was founded soon after the Conquest, and was 
a Cell to the Benedictine Abbey of SS. Sergius and Bacchus at Angers. 
At this distance of time it may be impossible to recover the complete 
succession of its Priors -, the following is the best that I can now offer. 

li OsBERT occurs Prior in the time of Robert Warelwast, 
Bishop of Exeter; consequently between 1155 and 1160, and, 
it is believed, was in the sequel Abbat of the mother house at 

2. Baldwin, as Prior, witnessed a deed of Robert Fitz- 
william in Nov. 1169. 


8. Theobald, it is probable, succeeded Baldwin. 

4. Michael, whose obit was kept 6th March. 

5. Hamelin, who died 1st April, 

6. James, who died 24th March. 

7. John Loenter, died 6th April. 

8. Roger, whose anniversary was kept 12 October. 

9. Roger, whose anniversary was kept 31 Oct. 

The six preceding are from the Tywardreth Calendar^ but the years 
are unrecorded. 

10. Galfridus, or Geoffrey, was admitted Prior 22 May 

11. Philip de Trembleyon, after a long superiority died 
25 May 1333. 

12. William Bonges, confirmed Prior 17 Nov^ 1333. One. 
account states that he died 18 Oct 1355: another fixes his 
death in 1371. 

13. William de la Hay succeeded 1 Nov. 1371; ob. 18 
June 1399. 

14. John Maslyn followed : I find that he died Prior 7 
Aug. 1406. 

15. John Rogger, confirmed Maslyn's successor 18th Dec. 
1406, and resigned his ofiice 27 years later. 

16. John Brentyngham succeeded 28 Oct. 1433, and died 
Prior 11th Oct. 1450. 

17. William or Walter Barnecote was admitted Prior 
31 Oct. 1450, and held his dignity until his decease 20 Nov. 

18. Richard Marston or Martyn died Prior 4 Nov. 1510. 

19. Thomas Colyns (son, I believe, of John Colyns and 
Alice his wife) succeeded on 25 Nov. 1510, and was the Prior 
at the dissolution of his house in 1536. 

Bat the present object of the writer is not to attempt a history of the 
Priory, but to furnish some account of a folio Latin Manuscript now 
before him, which formerly belonged to it, and is still in a fair state of 
preservation. A consideral)le portion, he conceives, was written in the 
early part of the fifteenth century j but there is intrinsic evidence that 
certain parts were not written until the close of that century, and that 
several entries were made but within a short period antecedent to the 
suppression of the Monastery. 

The work is divided into five parts. The first contains about thirty- 
six folios. On one side are placed the obits of the religious brethren 

I 2 


under the title of Prof east ; on the other side occur the names of 
friends and benefactors under the title of Familiares. Many of the 
names in this Calendar are Norman -, they would be too numerous and 
uninteresting to copy j some^ however, with several curious memoranda 
interspersed, will be given towards the conclusion of this article. 

The second part consists of nine folios ; it contains the ceremonial of 
blessing the religious habit, and of receiving Novices. The following 
English dialogue, between the Prior, standing in the Chapter House 
surrounded by his brethren, and the Novice kneeling before him, may 
amuse the readers of the Collectanea : 

Prior, What desire ye ? 

Novice. To be mad Broder. 

P. Ys hit yowr wyl & yow hertely desyre to be parte taker 
of all massis and prayers and almys dede done yn holy place, 
or schall be done here after ? 

N. Ye. 

P. Al so ys hit yowr wille to defende and to manteyne the 
righte of this holy plas to yowr power, where by God & Sjoit 
Androw may be the pesabeler servyd by yowr worde and gode- 
wille, as a trewe broder otghte to do ? 

N. Ye. 

The third part has twenty-five folios, and comprehends thirty-three 
homilies selected from the works of SS. Augustine, Maximus, Leo the 
Great, and John Chrysostom. One of these was read at the collation 
or evening refreshment, granted to the Community before complin, on 
most of the week days in Lent, viz. from the first Monday until the last 
Wednesday inclusively 3 for no collation was allowed on the four first 
days, nor on the last three days of that penitential season. In more 
ancient times the Lecture was taken from one of the twenty-four '' Col- 
lationes Patrum," » or Conferences of the Fathers of the Desert, and 
by degrees the refreshment itself obtained the name of Collation. For 
a long time the refreshment was confined to a draught of wine mingled 
with water ; but gradually the relaxation of a morsel of bread or dried 
fruits was introduced. 

The fourth part comprises in forty-one folios Usuard's Martyrolo^um. 
The dedication to Charles the Bald (fourth son of Louis le Debonnaire 
and grandson of Charlemagne, and who died in 877, aet. 54) begins thus, 
'' Domino Regum piissimo Karolo, Usuardus indignus Sacerdos ac Moua- 
chus perhennem in Christo coronam.** The author states that, in 
obedience to the orders of this " wisest of Princes,** he had ventured to 

* This work #a8 written by lohn Cassian, an eminent spiritualist, who died at 
Marseilles abmtt the year 43Cf. 


imitate the labours of St. Jerome^ of venerable Bede, of Florus, the 
Deacon of Lyons^ a contemporary, — that he had revised and added 
several notices^ and had derived important assistance from one Stepha- 
nas. This Martyrologium begins with Christmas Eve. 

The fifth part contains the rule of St. Benedict in twenty-one folios. 
'' Hie Incipit Regula eximii Patris Benedicti." 

We may now transcribe from the Calendar what is more generally 
interesting :

^ Our Cornish readers may not have generally heard that the last of this family, 
Francis Tregian, Esq. after 28 years* close imprisonment under Queen Elizabeth, 
for adhering to the Catholic religion, was set at liberty by King James I. or that he 
retired to Lisbon and died there 25 Sept. 1608. His life in Latin (a rare duode- 
cimo) was written by a relation, Francis Plunkett, and was published at Lisbon in 
1655. A poetical compliment to Yerstegan by this Francis Tregian is prefixed to 
the ** Decayed Intelligence."

for the sake of preserving the beasts of the chace (to kill any of which 
within the limits of a royal forest ^ was as penal as the death of a man) 
occasioned our ancestors to be not less jealous for their reformation than 
they were for the relaxation of the feudal rigours and other exactions 
introduced by our Norman monarchs } and accordingly, we find the 
immunities of the Carta de Foresta as warmly contended for as those 
of Magna Carta itself. By the former, which was confirmed in Parlia- 

* Besides the royal forests, there were in the county of Salop others which w6re 
in the hands of private individuals ; but the latter, though called forests, were pro- - 
perly the same with chaces, being subject to the common law, and not to the forest 
laws, unless the jurisdiction were added in the original grant The^e forest laws^ 
have fallen into total disuse since 1688. 



ment^ 9 Henry III. many forests were disafforested or stripped of their 
oppressive privileges ; and regulations were made in the regimen of 
those that remained. Henry^ however^ very soon commenced making 
fresh encroachments by extending the forests^ and by enforcing tbdr 
laws in places over which they had no legal jarisdiction ; and his suc- 
cessor Edward I. pursued the same system until the difficulties he got 
into by his arbitrary conduct towards the then Earls of Hereford and 
Norfolk^ enabled the Barons of the realm to extort from him a fresh 
confirmation of the two charters. On which occasion, for the better 
and more complete execution of the Carta de Foresta, or ' lesser charter * 
as it was called, the King agreed that new perambulations thereof 
should be made, whereby the exact boundaries of all the royal forests 
should be defined by a jury in each county ; that all those places and 
lands which had by former encroachments been comprehended mthin 
their limits should be disafforested ^ and that Commissioners should be 
appointed to inquire into offences done contrary to both the charters ; 
in every county three substantial men, knights, or other lawful^ wise, 
and well disposed persons, which should be Justices, sworn and assigned 
by the King s letter. 

In pursuance of this arrangement the perambulation of the royal 
forests took place ; that of those in Shropshire, 28 Edw. I. A. D. ISOO, 
as appears from the following important charter granted by that mo- 
narch, a copy of which stands No. 279 in the cartulary of Shrewsbury 
abbey, and shews by and before whom the same was made, the bounda- 
ries of the respective forests, and the places that ought to be disaffo- 
rested ; thereby enabling any one possessed of local knowledge of the 
county to form a tolerably correct estimate of the immense extent to 
which those encroachments had been carried.

and when it acquired the name of Mount Grilbert is not easily ascertained satis- 
factorily. It is so called in a grant of all the land of Upinton and land in Hodin- 
ton, which had been Hamo Peverell's, made by King Henry the Second, when at 
Salop 1152, or 1158, to Roger de Mussun, who is therein denominated *' seruienti 
meo.*' This Roger de Mussun or Muisun, and his brother Gilbert de Muisun, 
had an extensive property in the neighbourhood of the Wrekin : — Gilbert may 
have been proprietor of it, and thence its appellation of Mount Gilbert, but this 
is only conjecture ; he appears to have died without issue, and his property was 
probably inherited by his brother Roger, who left thirteen daughters, coheiresses ; 
most of whom were benefactors to the priory of Wombridge, co. Salop, in the 
cartulary of which, tit " Upinton," No. CV. is the following entry: " Be yt

and wife to Sir Danvers Osborn of Chicksands, Baronet, 
bom March 10th, 1718, died July 23d, 1743, in the 26th year 

of her age. 

We are conscious, gentle reader, 

that in death itself there is no real calamity ; 

Yet, should reflection on the instability of human affairs, 

should the remembrance of so sweet a flower^ cut off so early in 

her prime, 

raise the least tender passion in your breast, 

indulge one generous tear to the memory of this Lady, 

who, when alive, was all that could be wish'd in Woman. 

Her very Person spoke her illustrious birth ; 

nor was her mind less noble : 

In both of these a perfect ornament of her sex, 

and bright example of Human Nature's superior excellence. 

The virtues that possessed her were many, unalloyed ^ 

even with a tincture of the least vice ! 

Above all, the sincere and tender affection she bore her husband, 

was so predominant. — But no more : 

Gratitude required this last testimony. 
Love, Friendship, and Regard, inscribe the rest. 

Here also rest the remains of the Husband of this excellent Lady; 

few we presume will visit this awful place, 

who will not, with the most affectionate gratitude, remember 

that the several Virtues, which endear the Father, the Master, and 

the Friend, 

were all united in the most amiable character of 

Sir Danvers Osborn of Chicksands, Baronet, Governor of 

New York, 
son of John Osborn, Esq. (eldest son of S^ John Osborn, Baronet),

he died 4 June 1812^ and was buried at Campton. (See his character in 
Gent. Mag. lxxxii. ii. 187). He had for one of his pupils, Bernard 
Edward Howard, the present Duke of Norfolk, who for some time resided 
with him at Shefford. The successors of Mr. Taylor were. 

The Rev.* John Potier. He was born in Hampshire 5 at 7 years of 
age went to school at Sedgeley Park, neiur Wolverhampton, and completed 
his education at Douay. — Previously to his coming to Shefford he kept a 
school, and officiated as Catholic Priest, at Old Hall Green, Herts. He 
died 31 March 1823, aged 65 years, and was buried in Hertfordshire.

CO. SOMERSET, 36 HEN. VI. 1457-8. 

Among the Churchwardens' Accounts published in the '* lUustrations 
of the Manners and Expenses of Antient Times in England/' 4to, 1797> 
there is very little that is of so early a date as the present Roll, which 
abounds with entries of much curiosity. 

Its most remarkable feature in contrast to parish accounts of the pre- 
sent day, is the absence of any rate (unless we so regard the collection 
for the Easter wax) j notwithstanding which, the procJtors, or wardens, 
entered on their office with the large stock in hand of 12/. 11^. 0\d,, 
and left it with a balance of within twelve shiUings of the same sum. 
The several sources of income were the sale of seats 10^. \0d. 5 the fees 
for tolling the bell 16^. > the rents for cart-standing by the church-yard 
\8.4d.; the gifts of pious individuals, &c. 2/. 13^. Ad. ; and the rents of 
the parish weights 99- \d. Total of receipts, independent of the money 
in hand, 4/. 10^. 7d. 

The first item is remarkable as affording an instance of seats in 
churches being made subject to sale at so early a period 5 though, as the 
only price paid appears to have been rendered to the benefit of the 
parish, it may be considered rather a fine on alienation or transfer, than 
either rent or purchase money. It may be observed that the two sexes 
must have sat in different parts of the church, as with only one excep- 
tion the seats are let to other persons of the same sex as before. The 


price of seats varied from lOd. to ISd., the former sum being paid«for 
one behind the font, and the latter for one opposite the pulpit. 

The fee for a simple knell was 6d, } but when the brazen (or latten) 
cross was likewise used, it was 1 Od. Many of the knells were tolled 
on the anniversaries of the defunct. The larger sum of 20d, was re- 
ceived from Richard Flynt, for the striking of the bells when his wife 
was carried through the town towards Crewkeme for burial there ; 
and 3^. 4d. from Henry Byndelaus for the use of the cope, cross, and 
silver censer of the church at the funeral of his wife. 

The total sum of I6d. was received from four several persons for the 
accommodation of allowing their carts to stand next the church yard 
wall^ a spot still used for that purpose on market days. 

Among the gifts or votive offerings are some curious items. Several 
other loans of the church furniture occur under this head. On the feast 
of St. Lawrence the linen and jewels of the church were sent to Stour- 
minster, the market-town in the adjoining county of Dorset, about sixteen 
miles distant. Bradford, to which they were sent in the summer season, 
was doubtless the next parish of Bradford Abbas in Dorsetshire. Even 
the Vicar of Yeovil himself had to pay for the loan of the cross, cope, and 
censer belonging to the church, when he took them to the funeral of the 
neighbouring Rector of Berwick.^ He had also to purchase for 13^. 4d, 
the gown which had been given by Margery Hagard, for prayer yearly 
in the pulpit. A coopertorium (it is believed a cassock) another gift, 
was sold for 3^. 6d, The parish kept a store of three sheep, and their 
wool was sold for 6d. j and in the expenses we find that the pasture for 
the two ewes cost Sd* 

''The issues of the weights of the church/' convey the information 
that a store of these important standards of value, duly authenticated, 
was kept by the parish, and that they were let out from year to year. 

Such are the several heads of Receipt. Those of Expenditure are 
composed of a greater variety of subjects. A considerable number of 
the entries belong to the bells, which frequently required a new " baw- 
drye/* or thong, or the mending of a clapper. For the great bell a new 
rope was made of thirteen pounds of hemp given by Tristram Bumell, 
and the making cost 4d. The provision and erection of a new bell was 
the most important work done during the year. On this object 100^. Sd. 
appears to have been spent in the year preceding, to which was added, 
for the making of the bell, 20^. Id. -, for carrying the old broken bell to 
Bristol 58., for bringing the new bell home Gs. 8(f., for its suspension, to 
three carpenters 28. to Richard Hosyer (one of the accompting proc- 

* Barwick is properly a chapelry of YeoTil ; and on the endowment of the ricarage 
of YeoTil in 1438 the incumbent is called the Perpetual Chaplain of Berwyk cum 


tors) superintending the work 6d., and to Guy Corveser (the other) 2d. 
To these ex|>enses were added several other items 5 in which it is remark- 
able that, whilst the bell was brought from Bristol, the cable to raise 
it was procured from Montacute, and the nails and bolts from Sher- 
borne. These items are wound up with one characteristic of such 
operations in all ages : ^' And in victuals and drink for the said men 
helping to raise the bell into the belfivj^ during two days and a half, 
28. 2id.'\ 

The minor bells are also thus mentioned ; " For a new clapper fcHr 
the bell serving for the body of Christ 1 d. For a string bought for the 
SalsyngbeDe 2rf." 

For two ells and a half of linen cloth for two banners of the church 
to be carried round the fields, probably on beating the parish bounda- 
ries, was paid I5d. j and for dying half of the same id.; and in making 
the banners 6d. -, and for seven wooden rods to carry them in proces- 
sion 2^d. Again, for three ells of linen cloth for the dex (desk ?) at 
Sd, an ell, with the painting of the same, 8s* Sd, For a silken cloth 
bought to lie upon the altar oi St. Thomas 1 6d. ; and for two hesses to 
lie over the biers 2^. For ten ells of woollen cloth of a crimson (blodii) 
colour to lie before the high altar, for the preservation of the vestments 
at the pvincipal feasts, 4^. 4d. A new surplice also was made, for which 
eleven ells of linen were bought, which cost 4^. 6d* and the making aiid 
thread 2ld. 

Of annual customs and observances the following notices occur : 

Lent. " For holding the general anniversary,'* or obit, Ss. 3d. 

Easter. *'For making the Sepulchre, with the placing of the canopy, 1 d. 
For four iron staples for the covering of the Lord's body Id. For wax 
bought to renew the paschal light, with its making, I2d.'* As we find 
in the receipts that 7s. 6d. was collected for this special object, the 
parish purse was considerably benefited thereby. 

Whitsuntide. " For cirribus ? bought for the vestry towards the feast 
of pentecost; \dy 

Christmas. ''For a torche made for the high altar, viz. for four 
pounds of wax, at 5^d. a lb., 22d., for twelve pounds of rosin 9d.y for 
match yeems 4d., verdegrece . . , and in the making of the torch lOrf." 
Richard Hosyer again gave his assistance in this work, and took 2d. for 
his trouble 5 as he did on spending half a day on the carpenter's work 
in the belfry 5 and again for carrying the ladder when a window was 

Corpus Christi. '' To the ringers for ringing whilst the procession 
went round the town Id. And to John Mershe for the placing of the 
canopy, with the mending of one parish surplice, Id." 

To these memorials of the religious observances we may add that, 
''For drink ^ven to the ringers when it thundered; Id.'* 


Of the remaining items the most remarkable are^ for cleaning and 
scouring the great latten candlesticks standing before the high altar, 
with two other small candlesticks, 8d. For making three candles with 
the store wax to bam on the high altar. Id, For greasing the bells 
throughout the year, 4d, For washing the church linen during the 
year, 3^. For a pair of clasps for the great book lying in the chancel, 6d, 
For the parchment used for this roll 2d. and for making and finishing 
this account 4d. 

The total expenditure was 101^. l^d. 

The original roll was communicated by Mr. J. Batten, jun. of Yeovil, 
one of the Subscribers to this Work.

The first Register begins in 1557, and is a transcript to the year 1 62 1 . 

The principal families a residing at Camberwell, whose pedigrees are 
entered in the Visitations of 1 623 and 1 662, are Scott, Muschamp, Dra- 
per, Bowyer, Duke, Gardiner, Grymes, Turner, Cherry, Harper, Shel- 
bury, Vernon, Fox, and Wytham. The entries of Gardiner have been 
already given in the pedigree at p. 15 of this volume -, of Harper, Fox^ 
and Wytham, none have been found. Those of the other leading 
families will now be given distinctly, and then the most remarkable 
of other names. 


Arms. Party per chevron Az. and Vert, three doves with wings ad- 
dorsed Arg. membered Gules. Crest, A dove, close. Proper, membered 
Gules, within a wreath Vert, fructed Gules and banded Or. 

This family is not noticed in the Visitations ; but in a table in the 
volume of Surrey pedigrees, MS. Harl. 5830, f. 108, its connection 
with Camber well is shown to have commenced at a very early period. 
Henry Dove of Camberwell was slain at Bosworth field under King Rich- 
ard III. having married Joan, daughter of Thomas Brereton of Cheshire, 
*' a younger brother j ** both of them, as well as John Brereton the grand- 
father of Joan, were buried in Camberwell Church, — of course before 
the period of the registers.c 

John Dove, his son and heir, married Margaret, daughter of 

Pike, of Nutfield in Sussex -, and had issue John, the father of John, 
Edward, and John -, another John, of whom presently ; Henry, and 
Oliver, s. p. 

John Dove married Katharine, daughter of Waker of Carshalton^ 

• " The CoUecc'on for Teneths 1604, delyv'de to Mr. Roger Coole the 23 of 
May, by Will'm Fell and Jhon Peare churchwardens,** exhibits the principal

* The orthography of the name was changed from Dowe or Doue to Dove. The 
same was th^ case with another family of the name, or a branch of the same, who 
bore for arms the same doves with a fess and different field, of whom some parti- 
culars will be found in Wilson's History of Merchant-taylors' School, pp. 1149, 

1150, 1164.

and had issue Elizabeth, John, and Walter, the father of WiUiam, 
Henry, Samuel, Giles, and Catharine. He was buried at Camberwell. 

Elizabeth Dowe, bur. 3 Apr. 1558. 

Walter Dowe, gent. bur. 26 Sept. 1562. 

Bridgett Dowe, his dau.bap. 16 Feb. 1560; bur. 20 Oct. 1562. 

Alice Dowe, another dau. bur. 25 Oct in the same year. 

John, son of John Doue, bap. 9 May 1562. 

This is unquestionably the same person who in 1580, being then 18, 
was elected from Westminster School a student of Christ Church, Ox- 
ford ; was afterwards D.D. and Rector of St. Mary Aldermary, in Lon- 
don. He was a celebrated preacher, and author of several publications, 
an account of which will be found in the Adiense Oxonienses, where 
Wood styles him " a Surrey man, born of plebeian parents/* He died 
Apr. 19, 1618; but it is not known where he was buried. He mar- 
ried Frances, only daughter of Thomas Blague,^ D.D. Dean of Rochester, 
by whom he had an only daughter, Brooke Dove, and secondly Anne, 
daughter of Carleton, of Bridewell, co. Oxford.

An erroneous and imperfect pedigree of Scott is printed in the I£st 
of Surrey, iii. 406. The following is taken from that in the MS. Harl. 
1561, f. 43, and from the Visitation of 1662. It appears that William 
Scott, by Isabella, (who died 18 Sep. 5 Hen. V.) daughter and heiress 
of William Beck well, had issue William, aged 7 in 5 Hen. V. who, by 
Margaret, dau. and coh. of *— Bredinghurst, had issue John Scott, 
Baron of. the Exchequer 3 and Agnes the wife of William Mnschamp, 
of Camberwell. 

John Scott was Sheriff of Surrey and Sussex in 1520; was consti- 
tuted third Baron of the Exchequer,^ 15 May 20 Hen. VIII. (1529) j 
and died 7 Sept. 1532. He married Elizabeth, dau. of Richard Sk3mner, 
and sister and coheiress to WiUiam Skynner, of Camberwell, Esq. ^ j by 
whom he had issue John his son and heir ; and Edward, who died 29 
Sept. 1538 (epitaph in Camberwell Church, with a figure in brass^ en- 
graved in Hone's Year Book, p. 914)5 and Elizabeth, mar. to • 

Appleyard. The monument of the Baron of the Exchequer still remains 
in CamberweU Church, with representations, on brass plates, of himself, 
attired in armour, his wife, four sons, and seven daughters. This is 
engraved in Lysons's Environs. 

John Scott, Esq. his son and heir,c lord of the manor of Camberwell 
Buckingham's, and Sheriff of Surrey and Sussex in 1548, married three 
wives: 1. Elizabeth, dau. and heir of John Robins, of London^ mer- 
chant of the Staple of Calais, by whom he had issue John, Richard, 
Edward, William, Bartholomew, Acton ^ 2. Catharine,^ widow of John 
Sandford, and had issue Margaret, who was married to Edward Stone {see 
hereafter)', 3. Margaret Borton, and had issue Edgar and Southwell, who 
both died s. p. The nine childreti already named are mentioned in the 
epitaph erected by the widow of his son Bartholomew ; but in his will 
dated 3 Nov. 1557, it appears that he had, besides Margaret, four other 
daughters, Elizabeth, Ann, Mary, and Friswith, bequeathing to each of 
the five 1 0/. on their marriage. His eldest son John died before him ; 

* There was a former John Scot, appointed Baron of the Exchequer 8 Jan. 
4 Hen. VIII. (1513.) 

^ See the sepulchral memorials and epitaphs of the Skynuers in Hist, of Surrey,

^ In the month of November 1520 this gentleman, together with the Lords 
Ogle and Howard, Sir Matthew Browne, and Sir William Bulmer, was brought in 
the Star Chamber before the King ** for diverse riots, misdemeaners and offences 
by them committed." See Holinshed, ed. 1577, vol. ii. p. 1507. It appears that 
they were all pardoned save the Lord Ogle, whose case being murder, he was 
remitted to the Common Law.

husband before Scott, probably the " Maister Wychurch," who was buried at 
Camberwell, 1 Dec. 1561. Strype, in his Life of the Archbishop, gives no further 
information of his last wife than that she survived him, ** and living she was to- 
ward the latter end of Archbishop Parker's time, and for her subsistence enjoyed 
an abbey in Nottinghamshire, which King Henry, upon Dr. Butt's motion, with-

In the Surrey Visitations, this family is derived from John Dra- 
per of Flintham, Notts, father of Thomas^ of the same place, who by 

the daughter and heiress of Auger, by daughter and heiress of 

Urswicke, had another Thomas, also of Flintham,? the father of Robert 
Draper, of Camberwell, Page of the Jewel Office to King Henry VIII. 
This Robert married Elizabeth^ daughter and heiress of John Fyfield,

the ensuing extracts) who both died without issue ; Elizabeth, the wife 
of John Bowyer, Esq. of Lincoln's Inn, and afterwards of William Foster, 
Esq. (see p. 152) and Benedicta the wife of John Fromond, of Carshal- 
ton (see note in p. 162.) 

Rohert had a younger brother John, father of Sir Christopher Draper, 
who was Lord Mayor of London in 1560, and whose three daughters 
Bennet, Agnes, and Bridget, were married to Sir William Webbe,

that in the reign of Queen Elizabeth, the manor of Flintham came to ** the wife 
of John Draper, whose ancestors had been here resident since the beginning 
of Edward the Third.'' These Drapers, of Flintham, bore also the same arms as 
those of Camberwell. (ibid. p. 135.)

TThis family of Bowyer is derived in the Visitations from John Bowyer 
of Chichester^^ whose descendants for five generations were of Shepton 
fieauchamp in Somersetshire. Ralph his son was father of Richard, 
father of William, who married Joan Lambert, and had issue Thomas, 
who married Joan (who, according to the pedigree in Hist, of Surrey, 
iii. 409, died 15 Oct. 1539). Their son John married a third Joan, 
daughter and heiress of William Brabant, of Brnton, by Alice, daughter 
and heiress of Richard Boys (both which coats were quartered by the 
Bowyers), and had issue John Bowyer of Camberwell, William and John, 
who both died without issue ; and Agnes, married to John Browne, by 
whom she had William, Agnes, and Joan. 

John Bowyer, of Camberwell, bom at Shepton Beauchamp, was mar- 
ried to his first wife, Anne Jenes, 29 Apr. 1540, and had issue Rice,

of Robert Bowyer, Mayor of Chichester in 1532, and bore the same arms as the 
Bowyers of Camberwell, Arg. a fess Vaire cottised Gules. His immediate relations 
are fully described in his epitaph at St. Nicholas Aeons (Stow*s Survey, 1754, i. 
483). He was the ancestor of the Bowyers of Denham, co. Bucks, Baronets ; and 
from his uncle Thomas Bowyer of London, were descended those of Leythome, 
CO. Sussex. See a pedigree in Dallaway's Rape of Chichester, p. 61. In the

Of this family some account is given in the History of Surrey, iii.

he is glad to hear of his sister Frances* preferment (her marriage with Sir John

on the last Whitsunday was brought to bed safely of a daughter (Elizabeth, above

In Sir Edward Bysshe's Visitation of Surrey, 1662, the title of

old mansion, erected another, which was afterwards the residence of Chief Justice 
Trevor, and then of the Shards. See Hist, of Surrey, iii. 411; also Eveljm's 
Diary, 8vo. ii. 420, iii. 54, in both which places it is called a " fine house.'' This

1644, (Hist, of Surrey, i. 214) by the patronage of his brother-in law, Roger James, 
Esq. and held that living for some years after. His presentation to Camberwell

this time became Minister of Camberwell by the presentation of S' Edmond Bow- 
yer, Knt. patron." He retained the living for thirty-eight years ; duirng which, 
says Anthony Wood, *' he broke two conventicles in his neighbourhood, by his 
outvying the Presbyterians and Independents in his extemporanean preaching." 
He was also Rector of Bermondsey from 1654 to 1682, and a Canon of Armagh,

CHESTER, IN 1185. 

The existence of this important charter in the Harleian CoUectioD 
(43 I. 38) is not noticed in the new edition of the Monasticon -, 
although the fact of the transaction it records was known from the 
Register of the Hospital preserved in the Harleian collection^ No. 
1616, p. 27. 

The founder of the Hospital of St. Cross, Bishop Henry de Blois 
(hftlf-brother to King Stephen), had committed the government of the 
institution to the Prior and Brethren of the Hospital of Jerusalem ; 
but one of his successors^ Richard de Toclyve, in the reign of Henry 
the Second, appears to have disputed their jurisdiction, and finally 
obtained its resignation by the charter before us. It was executed at 
Dover, in the presence of the King, of Eraclius Patriarch of Jerusalem, 
John Bishop of Norwich, the Justiciary Glanville, and other witnesses 
of consequence. It is remarkable that it was in the very same year, 
about two months before (iv id. Feb.), that the Patriarch Eraclius, being 
in London, dedicated the present Temple church, as was recorded 
in the inscription formerly over its door ; a and about one month before 
(vi id. Mart.) he dedicated the church of St. John's, Clerkenwell.*> 

Notwithstanding the present Charter, the Prior of the Hospital of 
Jerusalem managed to obtain from Pope Clement, within two years 
afterwards, a full confirmation to him and his successors of the Hospital 
of St. Cross and its possessions, dat. xiv kal. April 1 187, (MS. Harl. 
1616, p. 121,) but, apparently, without any material result. With 
regard also to the surrender of the Muniments of the Hospital to the 
Bishop of Winchester, as specified in the Charter, it was certainly not 
carried into effect, since it was not till the year 1372 that the docu- 
ments were finally ^ven up by Robert Hales, then Prior, to William of 
Wykeham. A list of these Muniments is given in the Register, p. 4, 
and among them is noticed the very Charter now printed.

In continuing the progress of this Controversy^ it is obvious that the 
reader must be subjected to considerable repetition. The same line of 
evidence would of necessity be followed, and the same proofs be ad- 
duced, in the second suit as in the first. Nevertheless, as there is un- 
doubtedly much original matter mixed up in this rehearing of the case^ 
it is thought best to pursue the path as it was then pursued, rather than 
by an attempt at abbreviation to run the risk of impairing the fidelity 
of the narrative. 

The great mass of these papers seems to be in the hand-writing of 
William Wickham of Abingdon, who prosecuted his researches with un- 
wearied perseverance, and whose balance sheet of the expenses incurred 
is a curious document, and will be given at the conclusion of the case.

wicam's breviat. 

About 68 yeares since Humfrie Wicam of Swalecliffe, hav- 
inge 4 sonnes, tendered one of them to be chosen child into 
Wint CoUedg as kyn to the founder : But by S^ Richard Fyennes 
his meanes he was refused, notw^hstandinge 3 of y^ Electors did 
conceive him to be kyn. 

The Electors beinge equaly divided in opinion, they & Hum- 
fiy Wicam by consent referred the matter to be descided by the 
Heralds, as most competent judges of descents and kyndred. 

The Heralds, upon examination of y® cause, & sight of divers 
ancient Deeds and Court-rolls, & other evidences produced then 
by Humfry Wicam, allowed y® said Humfiy to beare y« foun- 
der's & Colledg armes, as beinge of y® same bloode w^ the 
founder : but upon S^ Richard Fyennes his suggestion, that the 
said Humfry would thereby claime his landes, judgment was for a 
time stayed : and then the IJuke of Norfolke fell into his trobles.

At an other election Humfry Wicam againe tendered one of 


his sonnes to be chosen as y^ founder's kinsman : but, y^ Electors 
beinge againe divided in their opinions, some thinkinge him to 
be kyn & somme denyinge his kyndred, they 8c y® said Hum- 
fry Wicam referred the matter to be ordered by y® Lord Trea- 
surer Burleigh : who appoynted D^ Lewes & D"^ Awberie to 
heere all tlieir allegations, & to certifie them unto him, w^^ they 
did; and then S' Rich. Fyennes dyed.

M^ Kingsmeale (attorney of y« Court of Wards, & unkle to 
Richard Fyennes) to peruse : and in the raeane time writt his 
letter to D^ Culpepper (to whom D*" White had then resigned 
y« Wardenship of New Colledg) in the behalf of Humfry Wicam, 
promisinge to sende his finall sentence in y^ cause soe sone as he 
should receave it back fro M^ Kingsmeale.

sonne as kyn to y« founder, & thereupon the said Humfry moved 
y« visitor to heare & descide y« matter, & upon his refusinge to 
medle therew*!*, the said Humfry exhibited a Bill in y« Chancery 
against y« Wardens of y« Colledges, D"^ Culpeper & D"^ Stempe.

D"^ Stempe answered to Wicam's Bill, Wicam replyed, Stempe 
rejoyned, &c. Then they proceeded to commission, examined 
witnesses & brought y« cause to a hearinge : but for some re- 
spects judgment was againe deferred.

A gentleman, a meere strainger unto Humfry Wicam, that 
chanced to be at the hearinge in y« Chancery, after ye Court 
was risen, came to Humfry Wica & tould him that he had 
heard his cause: and that he had an ould geneallogie in his 
custodie, w<^b he conceived might stand him in somme steede : 
and that he would bestow it upon him if ye said Humfry would 
direct him whither he should sende it to him in London ; wch ye 
said Humfry Wicam did, & ye gentleman sent it accordingly. 
The ould Geneallogie. 


Shortly after Humfry Wicam dyed, & his eldest sonne Richard 
Wicam, havinge noe issue, gave over y® prosecution of y« cause, 
and about twoyeares since the said Richard Wicam died: and soe 
this ould geneallogie hath not as yet beene produced for evidence. 

A nameles author, but said to be one Thomas Marten, writt 
y« founder's life, & as in y© next page, at the beginninge of y* 
answer to y« first objection. 

About July 1635, Edward Wicam, the second sonne of 
Humfi'y Wicam aforesaid, & his kinsman W™ Wicam of Abing- 
don, to revive their clayme, petitioned y« Earle Marshall about 
it, who, after y^ officers of armes by his direction had searched 
their records & made certificat unto him of what they founde, 
was gratiously pleased to write to the Wardens & officers of y® 
Colledges in the behalf of the petitioners.

At the election at Winchester 1635, the petitioner delivered 
the Earle Marshall's letter to the Wardens & other electors, 
shewed them the Heralds' certificat under the scale of their office: 
and tendered one Joseph Deane, a neere kinsman of theirs, to 
be chosen child as of y« bloode of y® founder. But by the inter- 
position of y« Lo. Sey the electors denyed to choose him. 

In Michaelmas terme 1635 the petitioners moved the Court 
of honor, that y® Wardens & other electors might be ordered to 
shew cause why they did denye the said Joseph Deane to be of 
ye founder's bloode. 

The Wardens & other electors havinge notice of y® petitioners' 
motion, acquainted the Lord Sey therew*, who undertooke the 
cause, & ^bout the ende of the same terme brought into the 
office of armes 5 objections against the petitioners' kyndred to 
ye founder ; & meetinge in the office w^^ the petitioners' sollicitor, 
upon somme conference had of y® cause, said that, although the 
Earle Marshall were Judg of armes & descents, yet he had noe 
power to force admission into y^ Colledges.

Thereupon Edward & W™ Wicam petitioned y® Kinges Ma*"* 
to referr the cause to the right ho^^e the Earle Marshall of Eng- 
lande, & to y* right reverend father in God the Lord Bishop of 


Winton : and his Ma**e was pleased to add unto them the Lord's

The Petition to yc Kinge. 


To all Christian people to whome this present writinge shall 
come, I Richard Wickham of SwacIifFe, in the countie of Oxon, 
Esq. aged fowerscore yeares and upward, doe by these presents 
testify, publish, and declare, that William Wickham, of Abing- 
don, in the countie of Berks, sonne of John Wickham, late of 
Rotherfeild, in the countie of Sussex, deceased, is my kinsman in 
bloode, & descended from y® Wickhams of Swacliffe aforesaid ; 
and further I doe make knowne that my father Humfry Wick- 
ham havinge fower sonnes, me self, Thomas, Edward, & Ferdi- 
nand, and endeavoringe to place some of us (as others of our 
kindred before had beene) in the new Colledg by Winchester, as 
kinsmen to the founder, to be chosen from thence under the 
same title unto the new Colledg in Oxford, had not beene denyed 
(as I am assuredlye perswaded) but that S"^ Richard Fenis, 
grandfather to the honorable William now Lord Seye, (upon a 
suspition that my father, beinge allowed to be of the same bloode 
w**» the founder of the said CoUedges, might ^tende title to some 
of his lands if he the said S"^ Richard should have dyed w^hout 
issue) affirmed that my father was not descended from those 
Wickhams w^^ were of the same bloode w^l^ the said founder, 
meaninge the Perrotts, who, by the said founder's adoption, 
chainged their names from Perrott to Wickham, and ^swaded 
D. White ^ & D. Stempe,^ the Wardens of y© said CoUedges, 
to deny our admission into the said CoUedges as the founder's 
kinsmen, wc^ although they did, yet it was by them & the rest of 
the electors agreed that the offices of armes 8c descents should be 
searched, to trye my father's pedegree & kindred, wch was done, 
& those armes w^t S' Richard Fenis claymed, & w^^ ye monu- 
mentes of the said CoUedges shew to be the armes of the founder, 
were allowed unto my father by Thomas Duke of Norfolke, then 
Lord high Marshall of England, and sett downe and blazed by

Hugh Cottgrave, Richmond herault of armes, by the advice &

Fenys* opposition, the Duke for a tyme delayed to geve his fynall 
sentence in the cause, and then, by reason of the Duke's trebles & 
death, the cause remayned undetermined. 

At the election after the death of the Duke of Norfblke, my 
father againe prayed D. White & D. Stempe, then wardens, 
John Underbill <1 & Michael Manshorte, then posers, John 
Chandler, then sub-warden of Newe Colledg by Winchester, & 
Thomas Bilson,® then scholemaster, to receave one of his sonnes 
as cozen to the founder: The wardens and sub-warden de- 
nyed his request; but the two posei-s and the scholemaster thought 
it reasonable, and thereupon my father's allegations and prooflFes 
were putt in writinge and sent to the right ho^'® S^ 'William 
Cecill, Lord Burleigh, high Treasurer of England, and the de-

attorney of the Courte of Wardes, unkle to Richard Fenis the 
Queenes warde, did resolve that there was good apparent matter 
to prove my father to be the founder's kinsman, and writt to 
each of the wardens a severall letter to admit his sonnes as the 
founder's kinsmen, certifyinge further by his letters that he had 
sett downe his finall sentence in writinge, & delivered it to M' 
Kingesmill, & that it should be sent unto them. This notw*^

lawe might bynde. And then my father moved the Bisshoppe 
of Winchester, visitor of bothe Colledges, to vouchsafe to see the 
redresse of the pmisses, who refused to meddle therein. 

When the Bisshopp had refused to meddle in the cause, my 
father exhibited a Bill in the Chancery against Doctor Culpep- 
per & Doctor Stempe the wardens of the two Colledges ; and, 
after Doctor Stempe had answered, my father replyed, and Doc- 
tor Stempe rejoyned, and my father surreioyned, they proceeded 
to commission and examined witnesses, and on the thirteth daie 
of Januarie in the two & twentieth yeare of Queene Elizabeth 
the cause was brought to a hearinge and (if my father would 
have consented there unto) had beene ordered & decreed, That 
fower severall schollers of my father's bloode & issue male suc- 
cessively one after other should upon request be admitted into 
the said Colledges. But my father would not consent unto any 
such order, and because none of his sonnes could then be admitted 
as founder's kinsmen w^hout such limitation, would not to the 
preiudice of his right suffer any of them to be admitted into ether 
of the said Colledges. 

Furthermore my father, to geve light in this cause to his pos- 
teritie & kindred, committed all the proceedings in these matters 
to writinge, & left divers books of them, & charged me to lett all 
my brothers, my sisters, and our kinsman John Wickham of 
Rotherfeild aforesaid, to have the sight & use of them, & copeys 
also, if they required them : and by reason of this my father's 
charge, 8c his assurance of me that the said John Wickham of 
Rotherfeild was my neare kinsman in bloode & my neerest kins- 
man of my name, me selfe havinge noe issue at all, & nether of 
my brothers for a longe tyme havinge any issue male, I intended 
for many yeares together (notw^*»standinge one of my brothers 
had many daughters) to settle the mannor of Swaclife (where 
my ancestors the Wickhams have continued by the space of 
above three hundred yeares now last past) upon my kinsman 
William Wickham of Abingdon, and his heires male, wc*» I 
would not have doone had not the said William beene descended 
from my ancestors the Wickhams of Swacliffe. But after my 
brother Edward had beene married, & his wife continued childles 
above the space of eight yeares, it pleased God to blesse her w*^ a 
Sonne, to whome I now intende my estate. Lastly, I make knowne 
that my kinsman William of Abingdon, when I shewed him the 
books & notes w^^ my father left of his prooffes of our kindred 


to the founder aforesaid, & of S' Richard Fenis his objections 
8c prooffes against it, he desyred a copye of them, and I permit-

The following letter, in the hand-writing of William Wickham of

officers of arms. 

S', I have beene at the Election at Winchester and tendered 
a schoUer to be chosen into the Colledg there as the founder's 
kinsman, his name was Joseph Deane, grandchild to Margaret 
that was sister to Humfry Wickham named in the pedigree. The 
Wardens, with the rest of the electors, examined him, and for 
his leaminge tooke noe exceptions against him. But D. Pinke, 
the Warden of New Colledge in Oxford, in the behalf of all the 
rest, tould me that their founder's name was not Wickham, but 
de Wickham, and that he was prayd for by the name of de 
Wickham, & soe written in all their statute books, and that ac- 
cordinge to somme his father's name was John Longe, and ac«

Petition to the Archbishop of Canterbury. 

To the most reverend father in God William L<1 Archbishop of

The humble Petition of William Wickham, & Elizabeth 
Mayott of Abingdon, in the countie of Berks, 

That William Wickham, Bishop of Wintoti, & founder of 
New CoUedg in Oxford, & the CoUedg by Winchester, indulged 
p'^cedency in election & other p'vileges in those his CoUedges 
unto his kindred & their posteritie. That your Grace's peti- 
tioner William Wickham, beinge descended of the same bloode 
& kindred w* the said Bishop, about July last petitioned the 
right hohle Thomas Earle of Arundel! & Surry, Earle Marshall 
of England, that he would be pleased to geve order to the offi- 
cers of armes to examine the veritie of his pedegree & to certifye 
his honor how they founde the same, that soe his Lo'shp might 
iudg of your petitioner's kindred. 

That the officers of armes did search & certifie under the seale 
of their office, that your petitioner was of the same bloode w*** 
the said Bishop. And his honor, in attestation thereof, was gra- 
tiously pleased to write to the Wardens & other officers & fel- 
lowes of the said Colledges to affi^rde to suche as were of your 
petitioner's bloode the p'vileges aforesaid, beinge of right due 
unto them. 

That upon the delivery of the Earle's letter & shewinge the 

Father of Edward Wickham the petitioner. 


certificat aforesaid, your petitioner, at the laist election at Win- 
chester, tendered one Joseph Deane, a poor schoUer of his 
bloode, to be chosen child there. But nether his kinsman nor 
cause could be admitted ; not soe much by y^ opposition of the 
Wardens & other electors of the Colledges, as by the interposi- 
tion of the Lord Sey, who beinge descended from one of the 
Bishop's sisters, to ingrosse the benefitt to his owne posteritie, 
labors to suppresse your petitioner's right, undertakinge at his 
owne charge to defende tiie Wardens & other electors from all 
suites wch by reason of that their denyall may be brought against 

That the eldest sonne of y' Grace's petitioner Elizabeth Mayot, 
hath intermarried wth the daughter of yo' Grace's other peti- 
tioner Wickham, and have issue, who ought to have and enioye 
the benefitt of the said foundacons, as beinge of the bloode and 
kindred of their said Founder. But by the opposition of the 
Lord Sey both they and their posterities are like to be deprived 

Yo' peti^ners therefore humblie beseech yo' Grace that you 
wilbe meanes that their cause male have faire and speedie 

determinacon. Soe as neither the powerfull greatnes of their 
adversarie, nor the meane estate of y^ Grace's petiffiners, maie

Petition to the King. 

To the Kinges most excellent Msfi^. 

The humble petition of Edward Wickham of Swacliff, in the 
countie of Oxon, & William Wickham of Abingdon, in the 
countie of Berks. 

Humbly shewetli, That, whereas William Wickham, Bishop 
of Winton, & founder of New Colledg in Oxford, & the Colledg 
of Winchester, indulged p^cedency & other previledges in those 
Colledges unto his kindred & their' posteritie, Your petitioners, 
beinge descended of ye same bloode & kinred w^h the said 
Bishop (as appeareth by the certificat of your Mefi^ oflScers of 
armes, under the scale of their office : they beinge, upon the 
petition of the now petitioners, exhibited to the right honable the 
Earle Marshall of England, by his LoP required to examine the 
veritie of their pedegree & accordingly to certifye the same), att 
the last election at Winchester, tendered one Joseph Deane, a 


poor ^holler of their bloode, to be chosen a chHde there : pro- 
ducinge at the same tyme the certificat of the said officers of 
amies touchinge his descent, together w^ the said Earle Mar- 
shall's owne {^testation to the electors, that the said certificat was 
grounded upon a refer^ice made by his LoP. 

For as much as nether the petitioner's kinsman nor their 
cause could then be admitted by the Wardens and other electors 
of those Colledges by reason of the interposition of the Lo. Vis- 
count Say & Scale, who beinge descended fro one of the Bishop's 
sisters, to appropriat the afcu'esaid previledges wholy to his owne 
posteritie, endeavored to suppresse the petitioners right, & ani- 
mated the said Wardens & electioners to that their denyall. 

They humbly beseech your Ma^ to be graciously pleased to 
refer the examination of the p'sent difiGerence unto the right 
hoble the Earle Marshall of England, to whose place the exa- 
mination of pedegrees and discentes doth propperly belonge, & 
to the right reverend father in God the Lo. Bishop of Winton, 
visiter of the said Colledges, w^ some other whom your Msfi^ 
shall thinke fitt, gevinge them power, after a full bearinge of all 
parties, & vewe of their exhibitts 6c other records, to put some 
iayer ende & speedie determination there unto, and your peti- 
tioners, as in dutie bound, will ever pray for your Ma*^^ longe &

Objections and Answers in brief. The sentences within brackets 
are side-notes in the original. 

[Lo. Viscoont Sey & Seale.] 

1. That the Wickharas of Swaclive were not of the same 
bloode w^^ ye Bishop^ because about one yeare after the Bishop's 
death, one John Wickham of Swaclive was admittdd probationer 
into New College in Oxford ; who> had he beene the Bishop's 
kinsman, should have been admitted fellow, 

[By y« Prothocall, or register booke of New Colledg in Oxf.J 

2. That the Coate borne by the Bishop was not his p a tern a ll 
coate, but was geven him in respect of his dignitie. 

S' Richard Fyennes, grandfather to the now Lo. Sey, claymed 
the coate borne by Bishop Wickham to be the propper coate of 
the Perrotts ; but upon examination of the matter by the heralds 
it was denyed him, & adiudged to be the propper coate of the 
Wickhams of Swaclive. 

3. That ye Bishop's father was noe gendeman, but a base 
fellow, 8c that his name was not John Wickham, but John 

That the Bishop took his name Wickham, or de Wickham, 
from ye towne of Wickham where he was borne, & not from his

And that D'^ Lewes & "D^ Awbery, upon the credit of the 
geneallogies written at the ende of the Prothocall booke of Win- 
chester Colledg, reiected all the probabilities and prooflfes w<* 
Humfry Wickham produced to the contrary. 

4. That the Bishop, in respect he was borne at a towne called 
Wickham, did not only take the name of the towne unto himself^ 
but also caused Thomas, John, 8c William Perrott, the sons of 
his eldest sister's daughter, 8c his heires, to chainge their names 
from Perrott to Wickham. 

5. That there were noe Wickhams of the Bishop's bloode, but 
only such as were discended fro those Perrott Wickhams. Be- 
cause there are noe other Wickhams named in the intayle of y^ 
Bishop's lands; nor noe other Wickhams named kinsmen in his 
will, nor in a letter of attorney made to one of them, 8c Thorn. 
Wick of Swaclive.

6. That the pedegree drawne by Hugh Cotgrave, Richmond 
Herald of Armes, & subscribed by him the 20*h of Februarie, 
120 Eliza. 1569, about 2 yeares before the death of the Duke of 
Norfolke, was after ward by the said Hugh Cotgrave, upon his 
better information, disallowed againe, 8c the true coate of the 
Wickhams approved by him at the foote of the said pedegree in 
the margent. 

7. That the proper Coate of the Wickhams of Swaclive is a 
field ermins bordered gules, charged w^^ • • • • mullets Or, as ap- 
peares in the books of the office of armes & in y® windowes of 
Swacliffe church. 

8. That William Camden, Clarenceux Kange of Armes, ap- 
posinge at the foote of our pedegree drawne by Hugh Cotgrave 
the propper crest belonginge to the coate there allowed us, and 
subscribinge his name there unto, did not approve that coate to 
belonge to us. 


That, about the yeare 1570, Humfry Wickham tendered his 
Sonne to be chosen childe at Winchester as the founder's kins- 
man, w^h Sir Richard Fyennes then opposinge, the decydinge 
thereof was by consent referred to the Duke of Norfolke, Earl 
Marshall of England. 

That, by the appoyntment of the Earle Marshall, Hugh Cot- 
grave [Richmond] herald, and also Robert Cooke Clarenceux, & 
Rob: Darmer, accordinge to ancient evidences & proofFes out of 
the register booke of New Colledg, produced by Humfiy Wickha, 
did delineat his pedegree. And that upon proofFes then made, 
the coate w^h the Bishop gave, & w^h S' Rich. Fyennes then 
clajnned to belonge unto the Perrots, was allowed & adiudged to 
be the coate of Humf. Wickhas predecessors, & annexed to the 
said pedegrees, 

[The pedegree drawne by Cotgrave/J

That in Januarie [1572]- the Duke of Norfolke dyed, and 
Humfry Wickham, at the election followinge, tendered his sonne 
againe at Winchester : S' Rich. Fyennes againe opposinge his 
kindred, procured 3 of the electors to ioyne w**^ him therein; 
and then, by consent of all six ellectors, S' RicL Fynes & 
Humfry Wickham, the decydinge of the matter was referred to 
Sr Wm Cecill, Lo. Burleigh, Lo. Treasurer of England, who 


appoynted T)' Lewes & D'' Awbery to heare th^ alle^tions of 
both parties, & to certifye him what they found. 

That not longe afler S' Rich. Fyennes dyed, and lefte a sonne 
Rich, fyennes warde unto the Queene. 

That, before the next election at Winchestei*, the Lord Bur- 
kigh hnvinge omsiderod of theDi^ certifioat and Humfry Wick- 
ham's reply to some objections therein made against him, ^vrit 
bis letter to the Wardens of the Colledges in Wiokham's behallH 
yet they againe denyed to admitt hit sonne. 

That there upon Humfry Wickham exhibited a Bill in Chan- 
cery against D' White, Warden of New Colledg, & D' Stomp, 
Warden of Winchester Colledg. But D' Whito surrenderinge 
his place to D' Culpepper, D^ Steiape only answered, & in liis 
answer insisted only upon Humfry Wickham's clayme of S' 
Rich. Fyennes his lands or inheritance, but denyed no^ nor, 
upon examination of witnesses, disproved not any ^dcular pojmt 
of the bill. 

That in the cause was brought to a hearinge, but not 

decreed, &. shortly afler Humfry Wickham dyed, & left 4 sonnes, 
viz, Richard, Edward, Thomas, & Ferdinando. Rich. Wick- 
ham, eldest sonne to Humfry, never had issue, & therefore never 
revived the suite, 8c the younger broUiers neglected it, because 
they were not of abiUtie to contende w*"" such adversaries, in re- 
spect of the small meanes left them by their father, one of them 
also bavinge noe issue at all, Thomas having only daughters, & 
Edward, one of the now petitioners, beinge married 8 yeares or 
upward before he had any childe. 

That the said Rich. & Edward Wickham knowinge that W"* 

Wickham of Abingdon, their neerest kinsman in bloode Sc name, 

had a sonne whome he desyred to make a scholler, shewed unto 

die said W^^ Wickham divers books & nota of all the aflPoresaid 

proceedinges betweene their &ther Humfry Wickham & & 

Rich. Fyennes ; and thereupon the said W™ Wickham, intend- 

« to tender his sonne to be chosen as founder's kinsman into 

inchester Colledg, repayred to the Lo. Sey, and acquainted 

1 wA his intent. And in respect the cause for w'^ S' Richard 

ennes did oppose Humfry Wickham's kindred to the founder 

) taken away (the intayle wob the Bishop made of his lands 

Dge cutt of), craved bisLo^P* favor, & furtherance for the 

rment of his sodd^ hopinge that upon his request his .Lo'shp 


would at the least stand indifferent and desist to 6ppose the said 
Wickhams kindred. He the said Wickham offeringe to shewe 
unto his Lo'shp all his prooffes, and desyringe, if his Lo'shp by 
the sight of them should not be fully satisfyed that he was of the 
same bloode wth the founder, his Lo'shp would be pleased to 
refer the decydinge thereof to one or more, who might have 
power and authoricie to determine the same. 

That, as the said W"^ Wickhwn conceaved> the Lord Sey for & 
tyme seemed to yeald unto his request ; but at the last, \vhen the 
petitioner's sonne was allmost superannuated to be chosen at 
Windiester, his Lo'shps resolute answer was, that the said W>n 
Wickham should expect nothinge but what he could obteyne by 
lawe ; and his Lop spake unto the Warden of New Colledg to 
denye the said Wickham to be of the same bloode wt*» the foun- 
der, promisinge to be at the charge of all suits w^fa should arrive 

That, about July 1635, Edward 8c W^ Wickham petitioned 
ye right ho^^e fho. Earle of Arundell & Surrey, Earle Marshall 
of England) that the officers of armes might by their records ex- 
amine the veritie of their pedegree and kindred to the said Bishop, 
that soe his LoP might iudg thereof. 

That the officers of armes, upon what they found recorded in 
their office upon the first difference betweene S*^ Rich. Fyennes 
and Humfiy Wickha^ did certifye his honor that the said Edward 
& W"* Wickham were of the same bloode w<^ Bishop Wkkham 
the founder. 

That, upon this certificate the Earle Marshall was gratiously 
pleased to write his letter to the Wardens & other officers of the 
said CoUedges, to afford them those p'Vileges w^^ of right were 
due unto the said Edw. & W^ Wickham. 

That at the election at Winchester in August 1635, the Peti- 
tioner W"* Wickham delivered the Earie Marshall's letter, & 
shewed the certificate under y« scale of the office of armes; &, his 
owne Sonne being then superannuated^ tendered one Joseph 
Deane of Us bloode & kindred, beinge grand child to Mai^garclt 
the sister of Humfry Wickham aforesaid^ to be diosen childe 
there as of the founder's bloode. 

That, by the Lo. Sey^s meanes, the Wardens and other elec- 
tors refused to admitt of the said Joseph Deane as the founder's 
kinsman, w^ to prove, if they had beene pleased, or that their 


leasure would have pi^itted them to pnise the proofies & proba- 
bilities alleaged heretofore by Humrry Wickham out of their 
owne register hooks & out of antient evidences, & a roll of ac- 
compts of the maynteynance of certayne schoUers in Oxford by 
the Bishop before the erection of New Colledg, and out of the 
Bishop's will & intayle of bis landes, & by an ancient geneallogie, 
Bgreeinge w^^ the said will & intayle, the said W"" Wickham 
would have shewed them unto them. 

That the Bishop's father's name was not Perrott, for that, the 
Ferrotts beinge his neerest kinsmen & his heires, he altered their 
names from Perrott to Wickham that they might inherit his 
name ns well as his lands, nether did y^ Bishop beare the armes 
of y« Perrotts. 

That his father's name was nether Perrott nor Longe, for thai 
the Bishop sued not forth his pardon by the name of W*" Per- 
rott or W™ Longe, but by the name of William Wickham, or 
de Wickham. And he well knewe misnomer in a pardon made 
it voyde. 

That in those ^mies it was usiall to add de, or de la, before 
the surnames of men, and that divers of our ancestors did some- 
tyme write them selves Wickham &. sometyme de Wickham. 
Robert or Thomas de Wickham signifyinge Bob. or Tho. y" 
Sonne of Wickham. 

That the Bishop's father's name was not Longe, for that it 
appeares not by y Bishop's will, nor by the intayle of his lands, 
nor by the register books of his Colledges (notwitbstandinge divers 
Longes have beene admitted into his Colledges) that the Bishop 
ever had any kinsman of that name. 

That the Bishop's father (accordinge to some writers) was 
called John Longe only in respect of his tallnes, or lenght of his 

[Bishop Godwine in his Catalogue.] 

That there is noe credit in this poynt to be geven to the gene- 
Uogies written in the ende of y^ register booke of Winchester, 
jr that they are apparendy false, one assertion in them disagree- 
ige w*** an other, and because they disagree also w^h the Bishop's 
rill & intayle of his lands. 

That the Bishop was a gentleman borne & a Wickham, his 
oate of armes of S chevernes betweene 3 roses doth witnes ; w^^ 
i the same the Wickhams now geve, &. w^h their ancestors did 



geve before the Bishop was borne, & w** therefore, but by de- 
scent, the Bishop could not have geven. 

That the said coate doth propply belonge unto these Wick- 
hams, Robert Cooke, Clarenceux Kinge of Armes, 8c Rob. Dar- 
mer oflScer at armes at one tyme, Hugh Cotgrave [Richmond] 
herald at an other tyme, and afterward W™ Camden, Clarenceux 
Kinge of Armes, assigninge the crest there unto, have under their 
hands iustifyed and confirmed, & lastly they have beene con- 
firmed unto them by all the officers of armes under the seale of 
their office. 

That, if these armes (as the Lord Sey affirmeth) had beene 
geven the Bishop in regard of his dignitie, he beinge a clergie 
man, & soe in those dayes single, they had dyed w^^ him, 8c should 
not at any tyme have beene blazoned w^^ the difference of a 
younger brother, nor ought not to have beene quartered w^ any 
other coate. 

That at the funerall of S'^ Richard Fyennes, Humfiy Wick- 
ham did see the Bishop's armes quartered by Somerset herald 
w^ the coate armor of S'^ Rich. Fyennes. 

That this coate of two cheverns betweene 3 roses, seeminge to 
be of great antiquitie, was scene by John Underbill crested some- 
tyme w**^ a myter and sometyme w*^ a bulPs head, 8c blazed in 
S*. Martyn's church in Oxford, wt^ the difference of a mullet. 

[The bull's head is allowed for our crest by Camden, Claren- 
ceux Kinge of Armes, according to Underbill's deposition.] 

That the same coate was scene in Thame church blazoned wth 
the like difference. 

That upon such prooffes as these, this coate, when S' Richard 
Fyennes denyed it to Humfiy Wickham, and claymed it for the 
Perrotts, was allowed to Humfry Wickham by the heralds afore- 
said, by the approbation of the Earle Marshall, & now to ques- 
tion it againe were to question the credit 8c judgment of the 
heralds and court of honor. 

That in aequitie we ought not now to be driven to prove these 
thinges againe, in respect those armes beinge but in glasse are 
since broken and defaced, and the parties that did testifie them 
are dead. 

That in the yeare 1539, one Agnes Wickham, the wife of 
William Faunt & Edward Bolney, was buried in the cathedrall 
church of Canterbury w*^ this coate of the two chevemes be- 


tweene 3 roses ingraven in brasse on the fower corners of the 
grave stone. 

That W"^ Camden in his Britannia reporteth, that when 
William Wickham was made overseer of the kinges buildinges 
at Winsor, he caused these words, hoc fecit Wickham^ to be in- 
graven in a wall of the said buildinges, for w<^ beinge questioned 
by the kinge, he answered, that that made Wickham, meaninge 
himself, whereby it is apparent that his name was Wickham. 

That, by the epitaph upon the Bishop's tombe at Winchester^ 
not sett there w*lk)ut the approbation of his executors, who doubt- 
lesly well knew his name» it is apparent tliat his mune was Wick- 
ham, for it beginnes thus : WiUkelmm dktus WichawMs Jacet hie 
nece victus* Longus would as well have stoode in the verse a» 

That if the Bishop's name had not beene Wickham from his 
father, but Longe, it was a great absurditie in the author of the 
first parte of the geneallogies written in y® ende of y« Register 
booke of Winchester CoUedg to sayifuit igitur Willidmus fVick' 
ham de quo loqui disposm apud opidum de Wickham enixusy for 
Jiiit tgUwr WiUielmus Longus de quo, &c. But the author, to his 
best abilitie, was willinge to expresse in the most retborical man- 
ner he could, that the Bishop's surname was simply Wickham, 
8c de Wickham a loco, and that it was a grace to the towne to 
have soe excellent a man c^ its name to be borne there, & a grace 
to the Bishop to be borne in a towne of his owne name. If the 
Bishop's surname had beene altogether unknowne unio the au- 
thor, he would certaynly then have said : fuit igitur WilUelmus^ 
or fuit igitur WiUiehrrms Episcopus de quo loqui, &c. 

That, in a booke in New Colledge Librarie, called Vita 
Wichami, written longe since the beginninge of the aforesaid 

suits betweene S^ Rich. Fyennes Wickham, &. as we 

conceave purposely to avoyd our clayme, we finde ...... 

Wicham natusfuit in pago sui nominis, & for this he cyteth in 

the margent records of the Colledg of Winchester & 

some other authors. Now the name of the where y« 

Bishop was borne is Wickham, & therefore the Bishop's name 

was also Wickham he could not be borne in pago sui 


That, by a geneallogie of exceeduig great antiquitie 

with the Bishop's will 8c intayl of his lands, it is apparent that the 
Bishop's father's name was Wickham. 



That D"" Harpsfeild, a New Colledg man, and sometyme 
Archdeacon of Canterbury (who dyed longe before that S^ Rich* 
Fyennes denyed Hum fry Wickham to be of the same bloode 
w^h the founder »), in his Ecclesiastical History of England doth 
testifye, that the Bishop was descended fro S"^ Robert Wickham^ 
& that that geneallogie was then extant, cum multis aliis.

With the Lord Say's Objections & the Answers. 

The Lord Sey, to prove that the Wickhams of Swaclive are 

not of the kindred of Bishop Wickham the founder of New 

Colledg in Oxford, 

Ob. 1 . That by the statutes of New Colledg in Oxford none 
that are of the founder's kyndred ought to be admitted proba- 
tioners, but fellowes of the said Colledg. 

But John Wickham of Swaclive, as appeares by the register 
book of the same Colledg, was admitted probationer in the yeare 
1403, wc*i was but one yeare after the founder's death, and he 
must needs be admitted child of Winchester in the founder's 
life time : And then if y« Wickhams of Swaclive had beene of 
his kindred, it should not have beene vnknowne unto him, he hav- 
inge bought the parsonage of Swaclive of him : And therefore 
conclude that the Wickhams of Swaclive are not kyn to the 

Ans. 1. To this we answer, that at this present there are at 
Swaclive two families of the Wickhams, w^h have continued 
there for many ages, & are not, nor never were, knowne to be 
any kin to each other. And therefore but one of these famelies 
could be kin to the founder, & that was the famely of S' Robert 
Wickham, lord of Swaclive : Nether doth or ever did the other 
famely clay me to be of the same bloode w^*i S*^ Robert Wickham 
or w^^ the founder. 

And therefore the admittance of John Wickham of Swaclive 
of that family wc** was noe kin, as a probationer, doth not dis* 

* Not true. He died in 1583, and the denial was in 1570, see voL i. p. 327. 


prove the kyndred of S' Robert Wickham's famely to the 

Also in respect it is evident by an ancynt roll of accomptes 
made of the expences of schoUers mayntayned in Oxford by the 
Bishop before the erection of New Colledg, that one Richard 
Wickham was of the bloode of the Bishop. 

And that it is apparent by the register book & other records 
of the CoUedg, that Nicholas Wickham y© first Warden of that 
Colledg was of the founder's bloode. 

That Thomas Wickham of the bloode of the founder was 
fellow of New Colledg in the founder's life time, viz. in the yeare 
1390, as appears by a roll of the burser s accompts, annis Rich: 
2i 140 & 150. 

And that one John Wickham of the founder's bloode was 
admitted into Winchester Colledg 1393, and that ten yeares 
after, viz. 1403, one other John Wickham of the founder's 
bloode was named in election to be Warden of New Colledg in 
Oxford, (for in respect that none above 15 yeares of age may be 
admitted into Winchester Colledg, and that none are elegible to 
the office of Warden under 30 yeares of age, it is evident that 
there were two John Wickhams of the founder *s bloode:) and it 
appeares also by a roll of accoumpt for the 5 and 6 yeares of 
Richard the Second 1381, in w^l^ roll is found. In lib Magistro 
Johannni Wikeham consanguineo domini diversis vicibus hoc 
anno ex mandato dni xx^. 

And that Percevall Wickham of Swaclive of the founder's 
bloode and of our famely was sworne of Winton. Colledg in the 
yeare 1439. 

And that the aforesaid Richard, Nicholas, Thomas, 8c John 
Wickham were not descended fro any of the Wickhams w<* 
were the children of W™ & Alice Perrott, because then the 
founder's lands had not descended to a daughter. 

It must be granted that besides the Perrotts, whose names 
were altered fro Perrott to Wickham, there were divers Wick- 
hams of the same bloode w^ the founder — And that all those 
Wickhams were of one & the same family — Or els that the 
Bishop was a kinsman in bloode vnto two famelies of the Wick- 
hams, whereof the one was noe kyn to the other. 

Wch if the Lord Sey or the Wardens of the CoUedges shall 
admitt, it being apparent that Percevall Wickham was of the 
famely of S'^ Robert Wickham of Swaclive, let them show of 
what other famely the rest were. 


Note: — Therefore to conclude this poynt, the admission of John 
Wickham of Swacliffe Probationer in the year 1403, And the 
admission of Percevall Wickham and of the bloode of the 
founder in the yeare 1438, doth plajmly prove that, as at this 
present there are, soe heretofore there were, two famelyes of the 
Wickhams in Swaclive noe kin to each other, & whereof the one 
was kin, the other no kin to the Bishop. 

That there were somme of ether of these famelies of the 
Wickhams livinge also in Hampshire or diocesse of Winchester 
as well as in Swalecliffe, appeares by the admission of John & 
Richard Wickham into Winton Colledg in the founder's life 
time : John beinge admitted as his kinsman, 8c Richard as noe 

Whether Humfry Wickham, now Lord of Swalecliffe, & 
Thomas Wickham, now also of Swalecliffe, be or ever were re- 
puted to be of the same bloode. See at the ende of this booke 
what Thomas Harper hath heard the said Thomas Wickham 
say. See also what Thomas Wickham's mother hath acknow- 
ledged under her hand. 

Besides these Wickhams of Swaclive w^^ are not of the famely 
of S"" Robert Wickham, lord of Swaclive, there were divers 
Wickhams livinge in Banbury, about 5 miles distant from Swa- 
clive, w^^ were noe kin to the said S' Robert, nor to the Bishop, 
of wch famely were Symon Wickham of Banbury & others, fro 
somme of whome D' Wickha, sometime of Baliall Colledg in 
Oxford, but late of Chichester, was descended.^ 

Ob. 2. Secondly, to prove that the founder was not of the 
famely of S' Robert Wickham of Swaclive, the Lo: Sey affirmeth 
that he was noe gentleman borne, and that the coate he gave was 
not his patemall coate ; & for confirmation thereof, alleageth two 
geneallogies written in the ende of the statute book of the Col- 
ledg by Winchester, producinge the copyes of them examined & 
subscribed by Clarenceux Kinge of Armes, & D'^ Stampe War- 
den of the same Colledg. 

And to free them from forgery and falshoode, 8c to inforce the 
truth of them, he sayeth : 

I. First, that they were written in the ouldest register book of 
the Colledg. 

^ See vol. ii. p. 384. He was Rector of Storrington, co. Sussex, and bur. 
there Aug, 21, 1621. Elizabeth, the wife of Simon Wickham, was buried ^there 
April 24, 1606. These are the only entries of Wickham in the Register. 


2. Then that the booke wherein they were written, hath all- 
Avayes remayned in y« ciistodie of the CoUedg. 

3. Thirdly, that they were written in the life tyme of Agnes, 
daughter to Matild cosen-german to the founder, & soe if they 
had not been true would then have beene controuled when the 
truth was soe well knowne. 

4. Fowerthly, for that they doe agree w^h the Bursers ac- 
coumpts, w'l> the admission of schollers, & the traditions of tlie 
Colledg from their ancestors, as appears by a certificat under the 
handes of D*^ Stempe, & M*^ Larke, Warden & Subwarden of the 
same CoUedg. 

5. Fifthly, for that they agree w^l> the founder's will, wherin 
legacies are geven unto divers men mentioned in the said geneal- 
logies, under the name of kinsmen, and w^** the intayle of his 
lands soe fully as if they had beene drawne out of them. 

6. Sixtly, for tliat the credit of these geneallogies seemed soe 
great to D' Lewes and D*^ Awbery, appoynted by the Lo: Trea- 
surer Burleigh, to heare this matter, when it was first contro- 
verted betweene Humfry Wickham & S'^ Richard Fyennes, that 
there upon espetialy they reiected the proofes & presumptions of 
Humfry Wickham as not beinge compatible therew^-k 

7. Seaventhly, for that Somerset Herald, gevinge his opinion 
in this matter, confirmed what was written in these geneallogies, 
sayinge that he hadd readd certayne learned authors' opinions of 
die Bishop, which did all agree that he was libertinuSy vel a patre 
liberUno natus^ w^b he sayth consenteth w^^ what is said in these 
geneallogies, viz. that he was progenitorum libertate dotatus : And 
for proofe of this he referreth himself to certaine letters of the 
Lo: Burleigh & Somerset Herald concerninge this matter. 

Ans. 2. We grant that there are two geneallogies or more 
written at the beginninge or before the beginninge, on the inside 
of the cover of an ould, if not the ouldest, statute or register 
book of Winchester Colledg : But say, that their beinge there 
written is noe proofe of their antiquitie. 

Nether can we admit it for an aphorisme, that the antiquitie 
of books must allway inforce their truth ; for then there is 
nothinge soe false, but that by printinge or writinge thereof it 
may in time be inforced to be true. 

It is apparent that W™, John, & Thomas Wickham, the 
sonnes of Perrott, were all dead before these geneallogies were 


Wiitten, for in them they are said to be nwnjc mortuosy whereby it 
must follow yt they were not written in 37 years after the 
Bishop's death, for that Thomas Wickham soe longe survived 
the Bishop ; and for ought we can conceave they may be written 
40 years after. See y« office found upon Tho: Wickham's 

And allthough we will not brand the authors of these geneal- 
logies w**» forgerie, that is w*** writinge of lyes wittingly & wil- 
lingly, of purpose to wronge posteritie, yet we shall make it ap- 
peare that these geneallogieii are very false & erroneous. 

As touchinge the former parte of these geneallogies, if we shall 
grant that it was written in the life time of Agnes, daughter to 
Matild (allthough we conceave the founder had noe such 
cosen-german, because there is noe such mentioned in his will) 
yet the latter partes of these geneallogies might be written a 
Jonge time after, for, as we are informed, they are written secun- 
dum quosdaniy Sf secundum alios, & in different handes from the 
former parte, wherefore we desyer the book it self may be pro- 

We confesse that the book wherein these geneallogies are 
written, hath allwayes remayned close kept in the Colledg: And 
therefore we say, if, when those geneallogies were first written, 
the said Agnes were livinge, & that she knew the true name of 
the founder's father, his sisters, brothers in lawe, uncles, aunts, 
kindred, & allyance, & could have understoode the latin tongue 
{w^^ is not very likely), yet in respect these geneallogies were 
obscurly kept in the Colledg, & not divulged & exposed to the 
oppen & publike vewe of the world, they were not only allto- 
gether unknowne unto the said Agnes, but to all other who 
knew the truth, & therefore could not then de controwled by her 
or. any of them. 

Againe, these geneallogies beinge written upon the cover of 
an ould book in divers hands secundum quosdam §* secundum 
alios by nameles authors, the actes of children of the schoole, 
(for others then children could not have committed such errors 
in penninge of a geneallogie as are to be found in these,) they 
^ere then by the wiser sorte in the Colledg regarded as thinges 
of noe esteeme, & soe not questioned nor controuled by them. 

We grant that these geneallogies may in somme thinges agree 
w^ the Bursers accoumpts, the admission of schollers, & w^^ 
some traditions delivered to those of the Colledg from their Jpde- 


cessors, but what those traditions were is not yet explayned, 
nether is their agreement in those poynts much materiall ; they 
beinge thinges acted & doone when the children w^h writt these 
geneallogies might live in the Colledg. Nether ought D'f 
Stempe's certificat to be alleaged as a thinge of any force against 
us, he beinge one of Humfry Wickham's adversaries in this 
cause, & (as we may say) S^ Richard Fyennes his creature : See 
Stempes Ans: to Wick, bill in ye Chancery. 

Farther we grant that soe farforth as those geneallogies doe 
agree w**' the founder's will, & the intayle of his landes (w«*» is 
but in few thinges) they are true ; but their contrarietie to the 
will & intayle doth prove their falshoode. 

For allthough the syrnames and christian names of divers men 
and weomen specified in these geneallogies to be the founder's 
kindred & allyance, doe agree w**i somme syrnames & somme 
christian names of men & weomen mentioned in the founder's 
will & in the intayle of his landes to be his kyndred & allyance, 
yet in respect they are not sett downe in these geneallogies in the 
right place & degree of their kindred and allyance — And that 
somme of them wc^ agree w^ the will or intayle in their symame, 
disagree therew^^^ in their christian name — And other, agreeinge 
in their christian name, disagree in their syrname, & the like, we 
deny these geneallogies to be true. 

And by the juditious comparinge of these geneallogies w^^ y« 
Bishop's will & the intayle of his landes, & w**^ a geneallogie w** 
by chance is come unto our hands, & w^^ we conceave by the 
very lookes thereof is far more ancient then these ; but certaynly 
more agreeable to the founder's will & the intayle of his landes ; 
conteyninge not only the founder's pedegree, & the progenie of 
his sisters, but also the descent & progenies of divers other gentle- 
men of good rank & qualitie, in such sorte as may releave it from 
all suspition that it should be delineated of sett purpose to ex- 
presse the descent, issue, or offspring of any one of them more 
then of the other : wherein it appeareth that the founder had 
two sisters, and that his father's name was Wickham, though 
haply for his talents or length of stature, he might by somm^ be 
nicknamed Longe, as Bishop Godwine in his catalogue of our 
English Bishops, relates to have beene by some affirmed. 

7. Now as touchinge Somersett's opinion geven in this matter, 
grounded upon his readinge of divers learned authors ooncerninge 
the Bishop, all w^b he sayth agree that he was humilis candUUmis, 


and that he was called WicKham a loco unde natus estj et non a 
parentibus : 

We grant that in respect of wealth the Bishop at the first was 
but of a lowe or meane estate, and that he might be called de 
Wickham from the place of his birth ; but that he was not called 
Wickham from his father we denye ; and to prove that his 
father's name was Wickham will cyte as many & as learned 
authors as have beene yet coated to the contrary. [Nicholas 
Harpsfeild, who geves good reasons for his opinion.] 

For by this obiection of the Lo: Sey, it seemeth that Somerset, 
for the confirmation of hb opinion, of all his learned authors 
cyteth only Ragnald munk of Chester, who sayth that the Bishop 
was liberHntis vel apatre libertino natus, by w^h it is manifest that 
the munk was doubtful what he was. 

Nether doe these words prove that he was Wickham a loco Sf 
non parentibus ; but, in the opinion of Somersett or of the Lo: 
Sey, these words consent w**» those in the forecyted geneallogies, 
viz. that he was progenitorum libertate dotatus : 

After the author of the former part of the forecyted geneallo- 
gies, had declared the founder's mother's name to be Sibbill, and 
that she was a gentlewoman well descended, he sayth pcUer vero 
eius Johatmes nomine, progenitorum libertate dotatus^ honestum 
-moribus et gesturis se omnibus exhibebat : out of w<^ words our 
opposers doe infer that the founder's father was noe gentleman ; 
but we cannot conceave how this consequence can be drawne 
out of them, except they will afErme that a gentleman ought not 
to inioy the libertie of his ancestoi*s, nor show him self honest in 
•his manners 8c behavior, for the words can be noe otherwise 
translated then thus : 

And his father, by name John, endowed w^ the libertie of his 
progenitors, did shew him self honest in all his manners and be- 
havior. [Nota: non patris sed pgenitoru libertate dotatus.] 

Againe it is manyfest, or at the least may well be coniec- 
tured, by the founder's father's man*iage w*^ a gentleman's eldest 
daughter, & by the marriage of his father's sister to John Achemore 
a gentleman also ; and by the marriage of the founder's sisters 
& their daughters to Champnes, Perrott, Ringebone, Warner, 
Ayno, Mauile, & others of good rank & qualitie, that the father 
& aunt of the founder were not descended from soe poore and 
base a stock as the Lo: Sey (in some sorte to his owne dishonor) 


by misinterpreting or to much creditinge those false & childishly 
written geneallogies, endeavours to derive them. 

And because the Lo: Sey doth acknowledg & confesse that the 
credit of these geneallogies seemed soe great to D^ Lewes & D' 
Awbery, appoynted by the Lo. Treasurer Burleigh to heare this 
matter when it was first controverted betweene Humfry Wick- 
ham & S^ Richard Fyennes, that there vpon espetialy they re- 
iected all the proofFes & presumptions of Humfry Wickham, as 
not compatible therew^^ we desyer that the credit of these gene- 
allogies may be examined : 

[Geneallogies examined.] As it is said before, they are 
written upon the inside of the cover of an ould register book of 
Winchester Colledg ; but when or by whome they were written 
it cannot be knowne ; nor how long the one part was written 
after the other, for they are without date, & not written at one 
tyme, because written in divers handes, & therefore also not by 
one but by divers authors, and those nameles, some children as 
may be supposed of Winchester Schoole, who for want of lattine, 
or iudgment, or both, were not able to set downe truly those 
truthes wcl* they had heard of their founder's birth and kyndred, 
much lesse to descerne a nickname from a true name, or flyinge 
& false reportes (though never soe grosse and palpable) from 
the truth ; but whatsoever they heard, they sett it downe accord- 
inge to the best skill their childish capacitie did afford : secundum 
quosdam ^ secundum alios^ not making, because not knowinge, 
any difference betweene oppidum & pagum^ a cittie or walled 
towne, and a cuntrie towne or village ; nor betweene amitam & 
materteram^ an aunt by the father's side & an aunt by the mo- 
ther's side ; nor betweene fratres & uterinos^ or leuiroSy brothers, 
& brothers of half bloode, or brothers in lawe, ether by their 
owne marriage or by the marriage of their parentes ; nor be- 
tweene patrem & vitricum^ a father & a stepfather. 

[De psapia :] For, say they, Willielmus Wicam enixtcs fuU 
apud oppidum de Wicam in comitatu Southamptony whereas that 
Wicam in Hampshier (as it is well knowne) is hut pagusj a cuntrie 

[Secundum quosdam :] They say also, Willielmus Stratton 
proereemit de Alicia Stratton tres filiaSf Aliciam, Julianam^ et 
AlHemoram, or Elianoram. And that Willielmus Boude duxit 
Aliciam in vxorem de qtui hdbuitjiliam nomine Sibillamj mother to 


the Founder : whereby it foUoweth that Julian & Elinore were 
the Founder's mother's sisters, & soe matertercB^ aunts by the 
mother's side, to Sibbill, & mojgruB matertercB^ great aunts by the 
mother's side, to the Founder ; yet, w*Mn 4 or 5 lines after, these 
childish geneallogies doe call Julian & Elinore the Founder's 
mother's aunts by the father's side, sayinge, JtUianam amitam 
mcUrisfundatoris duadt Richardus Botasle in vxorem^ et Elianoram 
amitam matris fumdatmis dtixit in vxorem Richardus Kerswell. 

[Wm Perrott eldest] Also by these geneallogies William, 
beinge in them first named, should be y^ eldest sonne, & Tho- 
mas, beinge last named, should be the youngest sonne of W"^ & 
Alice Perrott. But it is evident by the Bishop's will, & the 
intayle of his lands, that Thomas was the eldest & William the 
youngest sonne. 

Also in these geneallogies, next after the progenie of the 
Bishop's eldest sister Agnes, the daughters of John Achemore 
& Alice, the Bishop's father's sister, are registered to be the 
neerest in blood to the Bishop : And that the eldest of them, 
named Emma, was first espoused to John Warner, & then to 
W"^ Carpenter; And that the second, named Margeria or Mar- 
geretta, was espoused first to Ringebone, then to Mauiell or 
Mauile, 8c then to Rockloe. 

But by the Bishop's will 8c the intayle of his landes, it is appa- 
rent that the name of his kinswoman married to Warner was 
Jone, the name of his kinswoman married to Ringebone was 
Edith, 8c that Guie Ayno married an other kinswoman of his 
called Agnes. The said Edith, Jone, 8c Agnes beinge in truth 
the daughters of the Bishop's second sister, as by the ancient 
geneallogie produced by us is most evident, 8c by the said intayle 
may playnly be perceaved. 

Nota : — We do not insist upon the Bishop's havinge of two 
sisters for any advantage to our cause, or for profFe of our kyn- 
dred, as if we were descended from one of his sisters : Nor any 
way to piudice the Lo. Seye's kindred, but only for the truth's 
sake, for we conceave there is none of the progenie of the second 
sister now livinge. 

Also whereas in these geneallogies it is said that Richard Benet 
did wedd w^** Emma the daughter of Julian Stratton 8c Richard 
Botasle, it is more probable by the intayle that Rich. Bennet did 
marry w^ Emma the daughter of John Achemore 8c Alice the 
Bishop's father's sister, because the Bishdp did intayle his lands 



to the heires of Bennet : And it is not likely that he did intayle 
them to his kindred by his mother's side. 

Also in these geneallogies the sonne of Warner, by the 
Bishop's kinswoman, is named John, whereas by the will it ap- 
}>eares that his name was Thomas. 

Also in these geneallogies two of the Bishop's kinsweomen, to 
witt, Margerie & Alice, are said to be espoused to Mauile : But 
by the intayle of the Bishop's lands, it is apparent that the name 
of one of the Bishop's kinsweomen married to Mauile was Isabell. 
And by his will it is evident that the other was Jone. 

Also we doe fynde by the Bishop's will that Agnes espoused 
to Woodlocke, Edith espoused to Crasier, & Agnes espoused to 
Sannes, were his kinsweomen : But in respect he did not intayle 
his lands upon any of these or their issue, it seemes they were 
his kinsweomen by his mother's side. 

But that the Bishop had any kinswoman called Matilda, or 
Zelota, or any kinswoman married to Carpenter or Rocklo, as 
in these geneallogies is sett forth. Or that John Bowlney did 
many wtl* Jone daughter to Agnes & grandchild to Matild, doth 
not appeare by the Bishop's will, nor by the intayle of his lands, 
nor by them cannot be coniectured. 

[John Philpott, Somerset.] But that Edward Bowlney did 
marry w^b one Agnes Wickham, a kinswoman of the Bishop's, 
who dyed in the yeare 1539, doth appeare by the inscription & 
armes of two cheverons between three roses^ ingraued in brasse 
upon her tombestone, in the south ile, betweene the boddie & 
upper parte of the Cathedral Church in Canterbury. 

[Secundum alios.] Againe in the latter parte of these gene- 
allogies it is thus said, Johannes Longer pater fundatoris^ habuit 
fratrem nomine Henricum Ahas, ^c : Now by the difference of 
their surnames, it is apparent that Henry Ahas could not be 
absolute brother to John the Founder's father, were his name 
Wickham or Longe. Nether could they be brothers in lawe, 
by ether's marriage of the other's sister, if the former parte of 
these geneallogies be true ; for it is there said that John Longe 
the Founder's father married w^^ Sibbill Boude, and that Alice, 
the only sister to the Founder's father, was mai-ried to John Ache- 
more, & by him had 13 daughters, whereof there are only six 
named, & of them scarce two rightly, as allreaddie hath beene 

If it shall be alleaged that John the Founder's father and 


Henry Ahas might be brothers by havinge the same mother, but 
not the same father, ether by Ahas his marriage of John Longe's 
father's widdow, 8c havinge of Henry by her, or els by Jo. 
Longe's father's marryinge of Ahas his widdow, & begettinge 
John uppon her ; If it shall be admitted that John, the Founder's 
father, & Henry Ahas were such brothers, yet in a geneallogie 
they ought not to be written simply fratres, but vterini^ ovfratres 
semigermani : Nether could they be such brothers, if the Lo: 
Sey will heare admitt of the like argument as he urgeth against 
us in his 4th 8c 5th obiection. 

For if Hen: Ahas & the Founder's father were brothers of the 
half bloode, it must follow that Faelicia Ahas of Romsey, men- 
tioned in the same geneallogie to be grandchild to Henry Ahas, 
was kyn to the Founder, wcl* she was not, because the Founder in 
his will gave her a legacie of 5^^, yet doth not there terme her 
kinswoman, as he did others of his kyndred to whome he gave 
legacies : And therefore the Founder's father & Hen. Ahas were 
not brothers of the half bloode. 

We deny not but that John the Founder's father 8c Henry 
Ahas might be Jratres collectanijy foster brothers, or fratres 
conuotij swome brothers, or leuiri^ brothers by John's father's 
marriage w*'* the relict or widdow of Ahas, or by Henry Ahas 
his marriage w^ the relict of John's father. And were it soe, 
yet we cannot conceave how in the writinge of the geneallogie of 
one of these brothers, the other beinge not kin should have a 
place therein ; or if for somme reasons he be admitted tp have 
a place, it cannot be the place of fratris^ but of leuiriy or of 
fratris conuotiy or collectanifj 8l soe w<* way soever this geneal- 
logie must needes be false. 

In like sorte those children w^h, many yeares after the first 
parte of these geneallogies was written, penned the latter partes 
secundum quosdam, 8c secundum alios (as may be conceaved by 
the difference of hands wherein they are written) Notw%tand- 
inge in the former parte of these geneallogies, they did fynde 
that their Founder, William Wickham, was borne at the towne 
of Wickham, 8c that his mother's name was Sibbill, 8c his 
father's name John, wthout any addition of their surnames : And 
might thereby have easely perceaved or collected, that William 
Wickham the sonne of John, could not be the naturall sonne of 
any other John but John Wickham : And that John Longe 



could not be pater but vitricus Wickhami^ not the father but the 
step- father of Wickham ; or that the name Longe must needs be 
some nickname imposed upon him : wt^out any consideration or 
examination of these matters say that secundum quosdam Johannes 
Longe duxit Sihillam in vxorem de qua p'creavit Jilium nomine 
Wilhelmum Episcopum : And that secundU alios Johannes Longe^ 
pater fundatoris^ hdbuitfratrem nomine Henricum AhaSj it beinge 
as true that the Founder's natural! father's true name was John 
Longe, as that he had a naturall brother of his whole bloode 
called Henry Abas. 

Thus much may suffice to be spoken of the agreement of these 
geneallogies w*J» the Bishop's will & the intayle of his lands, & 
of their truth & credit, upon w<^ espetialy Humfry Wickham's 
prooffes & psumptions were heretofore recited by D' Lewes & 
D' Awbrey, 

Now that the truth of what we have spoaken conceminge these 
geneallogies may the better & more easely be understoode : And 
their disagreement w*^ the Bishop's will & the intayle of his 
landes playnly descerned, we have not only sett them downe 
verbatim^ but also delineated them severally to the eye ; first that 
which describes the ofspringe of Alice, sister to the Founder's 
father, then that secundum quosdam, 8c lastly tllat secundum (dies*

It doth not appeare by y« Bishop's will, or by the intayle of

Of 13 daughters, w^h in this geneallogie John Achemore is 
said to have begotten upon Alice y® Bishop's father's sister, here 

% -^m Maville married w*^ 2 kinswomen of the Bishop, as appeares by y« Bishop's 
wiU & the intayle of his hindes, but nether of their names was Alice : For the 
first was IsabeU, grandchild to Alice, the Bishop's father's sister, and upon her 
issue, after y' issue of his sister, y^ Bishop did intayle his landes. The second 
was Jane, daughter to y*" Bishop's mother's aunt, and to her y^ Bishop in his will 
did geye a legacie : But did not intayle his landes upon her issue. For he did not 
intayle his landes to any of his kindred by his mother's side.

Nether did W"^ Ringebone marry wth Margery or Margeret

second sister, & by her had issue William & not Edith, as by 
the intayle of the Bishop' lands, his will, & our ancient geneal-

It may be well coniectured by the ould geneallogie by us 
produced, and the intayle of the Bishop's landes, that the Bishop 
had noe neece called Matilda nor cosen-german called Agnes. 
But it is apparent that he had a neece called Agnes marryed to 
Guie Ayno, whose mother the Bishop's second sister might be 
called Matilda, for in the ould geneallogie the Bishop's second 
sister's name is not expressed. And by the Bishop's will it is 
very probable (if not certayne) that at the time of the makinge 
thereof, there was noe such Agnes livinge that had any such 
issue livinge as Jone married to Bolney, because in the will there 
is noe legacie geven to such Agnes or to her issue.

Clarenceux kinge of Armes, at the earnest request of S^ Rich-

gies were written at the ende of the register book of Wincliester 

And Somersett Herald might report to D' Lewes & D*" Aw-

we denye it not. 

But nether Clarenceux nor Somersett could iustify these 
geneallogies to be true, or agreeable wtl» the Bishop's will & the 
intayle of his lands. 

And it is most probable that such authors as agree vf^^ these 
geneallogies took their errors upon trust from these geneallogies, 
never examininge nor comparinge them w^*» the Bishop's will or 
the intayle of his landes, nor w*i» the pardons he sued forth, nor

This geneallogie of the Bishop's kyndred, both by his father 
& mother, is not only agreeable wth the ancient geneallogie by 
us produced, & w^h the Bishop's will & the intayle of his landes, 
but also wth the geneallogies in the register book of Winchester 
Colledg, soe far forth as they may be coniectured to be true or 
agreeable wth the Bishop's will or the intayle of his landes, & 
doth confirme the Lo: Sey's kindred to the Bishop. And for the 
difference of this from the geneallogies in the register book we 
geve these reasons folloinge. 

First, in respect that in the geneallogies in the register book 
the Bishop is said to have a kinswoman called Jone, grandchild 
to EUinor his grandmother's sister : And that by y^ intayle of his 
landes it is evident that Wm Mauiell or Mauile did marry a 
kinswoman of his called Isabell, upon whose issue the Bishop did 
intayle his landes : And that it likewise appeares by the Bishop's 
will, that W"^ Mauiell or Mauile did also marry a kinswoman 
of his called Jone, upon whose issue the Bishop did not intayle 
his landes : It may well be coniectured that Isabell, the first wife 
of W"* Mauile, was the Bishop's kinswoman by his father's side, 
And that Jone, grandchild to Ellinor, beinge the Bishop's kins- 
woman by his mother's side, was the second wife of the said W^n 

[Isabell ye wife of Maviell beinge dead is not mentioned in y^ 
will.] Secondly, for that the Bishop in his will doth geve lega- 
cies to his kinswomen, viz. to Agnes the wife of Woodlock, Jone 
the wife of Mauile, Edith the wife of Crasier, & Agnes the wife 
of Sannes ; But did not intayle his landes upon any of them, or 
upon the issue of any of them : It is evident they were his kin- 
dred by his mother's side : And may well be coniectured that 
Agnes & Jone, the wives of Woodlock & Mauile, were the grand 


children of the Bishop's great aunt Elinore, And that Edith & 
Agnes, the wifes of Crasier & Sannes, were the grand children of 
his great aunt Julian, And that Ellinor was the eldest sister to 
Julian, for that in the geneallogie in the register book aforesaid, 
it is said that Jone was the daughter to Ellinor, And because 
Agnes & Jone, the wives of Woodlock and Mauile, are named in 
the will before Edith & Agnes the wives of Crasier & Sannes. 

Thirdly, by the Bishop's will, & the intayle of his landes, & 
our ancient geneallogie, it is apparent that the name of the 
Bishop's kinswoman married to Warner was Jone & not Emma. 
And that the name of his kinswoman married to Ringebone was 
Edith, & not Margaret nor Margery. And that they were the 
daughters of the Bishop's sea>nd sister, & not of his aunt Ache- 
more. And that Warner, by the said Jone, had issue Thomas 
& not John. And that Ringebone, by the said Edith, had issue 
Wm & not Edith. 

And because it doth not appeare by the Bishop's will, or by 
the intayle of his landes, that he had any kinswoman married to 
Carpenter, Rocklo, or Bolney ; or any kinswoman named Alice 
besides his sister's daughter, marry ed to Perrott; or any kins- 
woman called Matilda or Zelota : It is most certayne that Alice, 
by Achemore, had noe such numerous offspringe as in the gene- 
allogie in the register book is sett forth. 

But because it is said in that geneallogie, that Margery or 
Margrett the daughter of John & Alice Achemore, was the 
mother of Isabell Mauile, and that by the intayle of the Bishop's 
lands it appears that the Bishop had a kinswoman called Isabell 
espoused to Mauile, And that the Bishop did intayle his landes 
upon her issue, next after the issue of his owne sisters, It is very 
probable, if not evident, that Achemore's eldest daughter by 
Alice, y® Bishop's aunt by his father's side, was called Margery 
or Margaret, & that she was mother to Isabell, w^h was wife to 
W^ Mauile. 

Fowerthly, because Julian the wife of Botasle, & y« Bishop's 
great aunt by his mother's side, is termed in the geneallogies in 
the register book amitam matris fundatoris^ and said to have a 
daughter called Emma marry ed to Rich: Bennet, by whome she 
had issue Richard ; 8c that Alice the Bishop's father's sister had 
also a daughter by Achemore called Emma, married to Warner : 
And because it appears by the said geneallogies that Julian was 
matertera matris Jnndatoris & not amita : And that by the in- 


tayle, and our ancient geneallogie, it is evident that Warner did 
marry w*^ Jone y® Founder's second sister's daughter, & not w«J» 
Emma Achemore, and that the Bishop's kinswoman married to 
Bennet, had issue John & not Richard : there is small or noe 
credit to be geven to these geneallogies. 

Yet because the Bishop did intayle his landes unto his kins- 
man John Bennet 8c his issue, next after the issue of his kins- 
woman Isabell, married to Mauile, It may be coniectured that 
the said John Bennet was the sonne of £mma Achemore, rather 
then of Emma Botasle, for that Emma Achemore was not mar- 
ried to Warner, And for that in all likely hoode the Bishop did 
intayle his landes only to his kindred by his father's side, as the 
Lo: Sey averres in his next obiection. 

And because by the Bishop's will, & the intayle of his lands, it 
cannot be coniectured that Achemore had any more children 
then two, we in this geneallogie have sett downe noe more, & for 
the reasons aforesaid we admit that their names might be Mar- 
gery & Emma. 

Ob: 3. The Lo: Sey's third obiection is, that, if the Bishop 
had beene kin to the Wickhams of Swaclive, then should his 
landes, after the issue of his sister, have gone to the next of his 
kindred by his father's side, & consequently to somme of the 
Wickhams. But it appears by the deede of intayle, wherein the 
land is intayled to half a score or more, & tlien to remayne to 
the right heires of the Bishop, that there is not pvision at all 
made, that his land soe intayled, should in any case come to any 
of ye Wickhams, sauinge only to them wc^ were the children of 
William & Alice Perrott. 

Ans: 3. We confesse that the Bishop's lands were, after the 
issue of his sisters, to goe to y^ next of his kindred by his father's 
side : But it is noe true consequence, that immediatly after the 
issue of his sisters, they should go to the Wickhams ; for by the 
intayle, next after the issue of his sisters, he setled his lands to the 
issue of his father's sister : And then for want of heires of them, 
to his next heires ; w^l* were the Wickhams, lords of Swaclive, 
allthough not named in the intayle. Because noe man in an 
intayle, after soe many reversions, can certainly know what the 
name of his right heire shall be, in respect that heires female 
alter their names to the names of their husbands. 


To expresse this more at large, we say that, by comparinge the 
intayle of y® Bishop's landes w^^ the ancient geneallogie by us 
produced, It is evident that Agnes y^ Bishop's eldest sister had a 
daughter called Alice married to W"* Perrott, by whome she 
had 3 sonnes, Thomas, John, & W"^ Perrott. 

And the Bishop, desyrous to have his lands to continew in his 
owne name, & to his neerest kinsmen in bloode, intayled them 
unto the said Thomas, John, & William Wickham, & to their 
issue male, that soe they might inherit his name as well as his 

[The effect of y© intayle.] For want of issue male of the said 
Thomas, John, & W"* Wickham, the sonnes of Perrott, the 
Bishop intayled his landes to the heires generall of the said Tho- 
mas, & for want of such heires of Thomas, to the heires generall 
of John, & for want of such heires of John to the heires generall 
of William ; & for want of such heires of the said W™ Wick- 
ham, then to W"* Ringebone & Edith his wife, & to the heires 
male of theboddie of the said Edith, beinge the Bishop's second 
sister's eldest daughter ; 8c for want of the heires male of the said 
Edith, then to Thomas Warner & Jone his wife & to the heires 
males of Jone, she being likewise daughter to the Bishop's second 
sister. And for want of issue male of the boddie of Jone, then 
to Guie Ayno and Agnes his wfe, & to the heires male of Agnes, 
she beinge the third daughter of the Bishop's second sister. And 
for want of such issue male of Agnes, then to the next of his 
kindred by his father's side, viz. to.W™ Mauile & Isabell his 
wife, & to the heires males of the said Isabell. And for want of 
such issue male of Isabell, to John Bennet & his heires male (the 
said Isabell beinge the daughter of Alice Achemore, the Bishop's 
aunt by his father's side, & the said John Bennet beinge also 
descended fro y« said Alice) ; and for want of issue male of the 
said John Bennet, fjo the heires generall of Edith aforesaid ; & 
for want of heires of Edith, to the heires of Jone aforesaid ; & for 
waut of heires of Jone, to the heires of Agnes aforesaid ; & for 
want of heires of Agnes, to the heires of Isabell aforesaid ; & for 
want of heires of Isabell, to the heires of y« aforesaid John Ben- 
net ; & for want of heires of the aforesaid John Bennet, to the 
right heires of the Bishop, not naming who they were : But cer- 
tayne it is, that they were (as the Lo: Sey himself affirmes) the 
next of the Bishop's kindred by his father's side, vf^^ were the 
Wickhams, the Bishop's genuine name from hb father beinge 


Wickham, as by his alteringe the names of his neerest kinsmen 
from Perrott to Wickham, is manifest enough, were there noe 
other proofies thereof, as there are many. 

For by the register book & records of New Colledg it is 
manyfest, that, besides the children of Perrott & their issue 
{wch was only one, viz. Thomas the sonne of Thomas), 
there were many other Wickhams w^^ were of the Fomider*s 
bloode, as in our answer to the first obiection is sett forth. And 
for want of issue of the pticular psons named in y« intayle, the 
lands intayled were to come unto the heires of somme of those 
Wickhams, beinge the next in bloode to the Bishop by his 
father's side, save only such as were named in the said intayle, 
& the knowledg thereof (as? Humfry Wickham hath left it to 
posteritie) was the only cause that S"" Richard Fyennes, before 
the said intayle was cutt ofFe, beinge like to dye w^hout issue, & 
desyringe to convey those lands to somme of his neerer kyndred, 
did denye the said Humfry Wickham's sonne (then standinge 
to be child of Winchester Colledg) to be of the bloode of the 
founder. That soe those to whome he should convey those 
landes, might have somme colorable plea to wt^stand the said 
Humfry Wickham's title & plea unto the said landes, by vertue 
of the said intayle. 

If the Lo: Sey shall affirme, that the Longes were the right 
heires of the Bishop & not the Wickhams, because in those 
childish geneallogies John Longe is said to be y® Founder's father, 

The same argument w^h he urgeth against us in his 4: & 5: 
obiections, may be far more strongly inforced against himself— 
for, beside that there is noe provision made in the intayle of the 
Bishop's landes that the landes should come to any of the 
Longes, it doth not any where appeare, nether by the Bishop's 
will nor the records of his Colledg, that any of the Longes were 
of his bloode : Notw^^standinge divers of them were admitted of 
New Colledg, as in our Answer to the Lo: Sey's 4 & 5: obiec- 
tions shall be sett forth. 

Ob: 4, 5. The 4*^ & 5^*» reasons alleaged against us by y« Lo: 
Sey are in effect the same : viz. y« Bishop in his will gevinge 
legacies to John Wickham of Crondall & John Wickham of 
Barton, doth not there calle them kinsmen. And makinge 

* Had y* Perrott Wickhams had issue male the landes had not descended to a 


Thomas Wickham the sonne of Perrott, & one Nicholas Wick- 
ham two of his executors, he expresseth the said Thomas to be 
his kinsman, but not Nicholas. 

5. Soe also in a letter of attorney y« Bishop, makinge men- 
tion of Thomas Wickham of Swaclive & Thomas Wickham the 
Sonne of Perrott, he geves the title of kinsman only to Tho: 
Wickham the sonne of Perrott, And therefore the Lo: Sey con- 
cludes that nether Thomas Wickham of Swaclive, nor John 
Wickham of Crondale, nor John Wickham of Barton, nor 
Nicholas Wickham, were any kyn to the Bishop. 

Ans: 4, 5. First, it is cleere that the sonnes of W™ & Alice 
Perrott, accordinge to their father's name, were Perrottes ; But, 
beinge by their mother descended from the Wickhams, viz. from 
the Bishop's eldest sister, & soe neerer in bloode to the Bishop 
then any of his kindred whose true surname was Wickham: 
The Bishop, to continew his landes in his owne name and yet 
not to disinherit his kinsmen neerest in bloode, chainged their 
names from Perrott to Wickham : And in the intayle of his 
landes, & in his last will, calles Thomas Perrott by the name of 
Thomas Wickham his kinsman, expressinge thereby that he was 
his kinsman by the Wickhams not by the Perrotts. 

Secondly, to manyfest that Thomas Wickham, the sonne of 
Perrott, was his neerest kinsman, he calles him his heire. 

Thirdly, to pvent that noe other Thomas of bloode & kindred, 
whose true surname was Wickham, should clayme the first 
interest in his landes, by vertue of the said intayle, or to be one 
of the executors of his last will : By obiectinge that the Bishop 
had intavled his landes to his kinsman Thomas Wickham, & not 
to his kinsman Thomas Perrott, & that the Bishop's kinsman 
Thomas W^ickham, & not his kinsman Thomas Perrott, was to 
be one of his executors : The Bishop, both in the intayle & in 
his will, naminge his kinsman Thomas Wickham to be his heir 
& one of his executors, to expresse vf^^ Thomas Wickham he 
ment, describes him to be the sonne of W™ & Alice Perrott. 

A reason also why the Bishop in the letter of attorney geves 
the adiunct of kinsman unto Thomas Wickham the sonne of 
Wna & Alice Perrott, & not to Tho: Wickham of Swaclive, and 
likewise why the Bishop in his will geves the title of kinsman 
unto Tho: Wickham the sonne of Perrott, & not unto Nicholas 
Wickham, nor to ether of the John Wickhams named in the 
will, might be because the said Thomas Wickham the sonne of 


Perrott t s his kinsman in a neerer degree then the rest : and 
not beca 3 the rest were not his kinsmen. 

Anott r reason why John Wickham of Bireton and John 
Wickham of Crondall were not in the Bishop's will styled his 
kinsmen^ might be because they were clergie men, & therefore 
in those daies could have noe issue, nether was Faelix Aas therein 
stiled his kinswoman, for shee also was a votarie. 

For if, because in the intayle of the Bishop's landes Thomas, 
John, & W™ Wickliam, the sonnes of Perrott, are only styled 
the Bishop's kinsmen, & that Edith Ringebone, Jone W^amer, 
Agnes Ayno, Isabell Mauile, 8c John Bennet are not likewise 
therein styled his kindred, we should draw this conclusion, that 
therefore the said Edith, Jone, Agnes, Isabell, & John were noe 
kin to the Bishop, we conceave the Lo: Sey himself would not 
think it a true consequent of the pmisses. The Bishop in his will 
havinge declared somme of these to be his kindred. 

Nether must we admitt that, because in the intayle of the 
Bishop's landes & in his last will Thomas Wickham & his bro- 
thers the sonnes of Perrott are only named y« Bishop's kinsmen, 
& not any of the other Wickhams mentioned in the said will, 
that therefore none of the other Wickhams there mentioned 
w%)ut the adiunct of kinsman, were of the same bloode w^ the 
Bishop ; for in likelyhoode (if not all) somme of them were the 
very same Wickhams w^li were admitted into New Colledg as 
his kinsmen. 

Nota. But if the Lo: Sey could proue, or if it should be 
granted, that these two Johns and Nicholas Wickham named 
in the Founder's will and Tho. Wickham of Swaclive named 
in the letter of attorney, w^^ut the adiunct of kinsmen, 
were none of those w^h were admitted into New Colledg as 
of the Founder's bloode, but others of an other family w^ were 
not his kinsmen. Yet their not beinge his kinsmen doth not 
disprove our kindred : It beinge evident by the register book of 
the CoUedges, that there were two famelies of the Wickhams, 
whereof the one was kin, the other noe kin to y© Bishop. And 
that there are somme of ether famely dwellinge in Swaclive, and 
that we can prove our selves to be descended from the same 
famely w^^ those w^h were admitted as his kinsmen. 

Nota. Nether if the Lo: Sey could prove, or that it should be 
granted, that the Bishop's father's name was Longe or Perrott, 
& that the Bishop took the name of Wickham only from the 
place of his birth, & not from his father. And that in that 


respect only, he also made the Perrotts to take up that name (as 
the Lo: Sey allegeth) It could not ^iudice our clay me to be of 
the Bishop's bloode & kindred, in respect that Nicholas, Richard, 
Thomas, John, & Percevall Wickham, (not descended from the 
sonnes of W™ & Alice Perrott,) were of the Bishop's bloode & 
kindred, & of our famely, w^^ upon our profTe that the said 
Percevall was of our famely must be granted ; or els that the 
Bishop was kin unto two severall famelyes of the Wickhams w^'* 
were no kin to each other : as in our Answ. to the first Obiec- 

That the Founder took the name of Wickham only from the 
place of his birth is altogether improbable : 

[Not Wickham a loco et rum a parentibus.] First in respect 
that, if the Founder's father's name were not Wickham, it cannot 
be made to appear how Nicholas, Richard, Thomas, John, & 
Percevall Wickham aforesaid could be of the Founder's bloode, 
for it is evident that the kindred came not by his mother's side, 
she being the daughter of W™ Boude & Alice Stratton, 

Secondly it is generaly knowne that in ancient times it was a 
usiall thinge to write de before the surnames of men, W"* de 
Wickham beinge then accoumpted as much as to say William 
tlie Sonne of Wickham. And for proofFe thereof we can pro-* 
duce divers ancient deeds wherein our predecessors were written 
sometime Wickham & sometimes de Wickham ; and therefore, 
although the Founder were borne at Wickham, & sometime writ- 
ten de Wickham, it was not soe much in respect that he was 
borne at Wickham, as that he was the sonne of Wickham ; for 
the Bishop in matters of greatest weight & moment, as in his 
pardon, 8c in the licences he took to build his Colledges, did 
9ause himself to be written W"* Wickham & not de Wickham, 
& we conceave that noe man knew his name better then himself. 

If the Bishop took his name Wickham from the village where 
he was borne, & not from his father, every man that was borne 
in that village might as well as the Bishop take unto himself 
that name, & every W"* borne there might write himself W™ 
de Wickham as well as the Bishop. 

If it be alleaged that in those dales some clergie men only did 
take unto themselves the name of the place where they were 
borne, as W™ de Wainfleete ; we answer that our Bishop was 
called W™ Wickham or de Wickham longe before he was a 



clergieman, viz. when he was the overseer of the kinges buildings 
at Windsore. 

It is most usiall for bastardes only to be called by the name 
of the place where they are borne, for that ether their father's 
name is not knowne at all, or that their mother, beinge a com- 
mon whore, doth assigne them many fathers. But the Bishc^'s 
mother was noe such leaud woman. And it is confessed that his 
father's christian name was knowne to be John, and therefore 
at that time, men were not, or need not to have beene i^orant 
of his surname ; Nether was the Bishop ashamed of his father or 
of his name, for he erected a chappell for the buriall of his 
parentes at Tichfeild, neere the towne of Wickham in Hamp- 
shire. (God wine's Catalo.) 

And it may well be coniectured that, had the Bishop soe well 
affected the village of Wickham where he was bom, that he did 
choose to be called by its name rather then by his owne father's 
name, he would have built the chappell for his parentes* buriall 
there. Or that, doinge soe many good & charitable works as he 
did, and beinge of that abilitie and authority he was, he would 
eertaynly have endowed that towne w^ somme lands, & made it 
a corporat towne, or have built a free schoole there, out of w^k 
the schoUers to supply his Colledg in Oxford should have beene 
chosen. Or have granted to such as should have beene borne at 
that towne of Wickham, somme previledg or prioritie of election 
into his schoole at Winchester, 8c his Colledg in Oxford, or the 

[Not Perrott nor Longe.] That the Bishop's father's name 
was nether Perrott nor Longe is evident, for that he sued not for 
his pardon by the name of W™ Perrott or W"» Longe, but by 
the name of W™ Wickham or de Wickham, w^^ was all one, 
because in these times it was usiall to write de before the sur- 
names of men. And eertaynly the Bishop was not ignorant 
that a misnomer in a pardon made it voyde. 

Nether did the Bishop beare the armes of the Perrotts or of 
the Longes ; and the grandchildren to the Bishop's eldest sister 
beinge Perrotts & the next heires, he altered their names from 
Perrott to Wickham, w^t eertaynly he would never have doone 
had his owne name beene Perrott, — Yea had not his owne name 
beene Wickham. 

If the Bishop's father were called Longe, eertaynly he was his 


fether-in-law, or els he was by sonune soe nicknamed in respect 
of his talenes or lenght of stature, and that he was soe nicknamed 
hath by somme historians beene affirmed, as Bishop Godwine in 
his catalogue of our English Bishops reporteth. 

For if the Bishop's naturall father's true surname had beene 
Longe^ it could not be but that the Bishop should have had 
somme kindred of that name ; but it doth noe where appeare 
that he had any ; there beinge noe mention made of any of that 
name in the intayle of the Bishop's landes, nor any legacie geven 
by the Bishop in his will to any of that name, as his kinsman or 

And divers of the Longes beinge fellowes of New CoUedg, 
there is not one of them recorded to be the Founder's kinsman. 

In the Prothocall or register book of New CoUedg, fol. 21, 
columna 2*, W"* Longe was admitted fellow, not naminge him 
cosen to the Founder, w^li was w^Mn 80 yeares after the Founder's 
death. The same leafe, columna 4^^^ W™ Longe went away, 
wcl» was of the Countie of Somerset. 

Fol. 22, W™ Longe of Hampshire (vf^^ was the countie where 
the Bishop was borne,) died, columna 1*. 

Fol. 170, W™ Longe de Overton, in com. Southampton, 
admitted fellow, did sweare, amongst other thinges, to observe 
the orders appoynted by the reverend father W"* Wickham, 
Founder of the CoUedg, &c. And afterward that he should pfer 
the kinsmen of the founder. 

Nether doth it any where appeare that the Bishop ever had 
any kinsman named Perrott, save only the sonnes of his eldest 
sister's daughter Alice, & W"* Perrott, to whom when he in- 
tayled his landes, he chainged their names from Perrott to 

[That the Bishop's father's name was Wickham.] Now in 
honor of the Lo. Sey, & to that worthie prelate Bishop Wick- 
ham, from whome (besides the benefit of his CoUedges) the Lo: 
Sey & his pdecessors have receaved a very large & magnificent 
patrymony, we will shew that the Bishop's father was a gentle- 
man, though not of any great wealth, & that his name was John 
W^ickham, notw^^^standinge in respect of his talenes he might be 
nicknamed John Longe, as aforesaid. 

If the Bishop's surname from his father had not beene knowne 
to be Wickham, the author of the former parte of the geneal- 

R 2 


logies, so much insisted on by the Lo. Sey, should have said, 
fuit igitur WiPmus Episcopus de quo loqui disposui^ w^^ut an? 
surname; or, had his father's name beene knowne to be Perrott or 
Longe, he should have said Juit igitur WiVmus Perottus or fViF- 
mus LonguSf de quo loqui disposuij apiid oppidum de Wickham 
enixus^ et sic nomen Wickham or de Wickham a loco assumpsit^ d 
nomen loci elogio perpetuo decorauit : But the author, knowinge 
that yc Bishop's true, propper, & genuine surname was Wickham 
from his father, sayih/uit igitur Wilhelmus Wickham, de quo loqui 
disposui, apud oppidum de Wickham enixusy et sic nomen a loco 
assumpsit, et nomen cum loco elogio perpetuo decorauit .- All wcl» 
words beinge rightly expounded do signifie noe more but this, 

That W™ Wickham was borne in a towne or village of his 
owne name, & soe graced his name & the towne w'h the per- 
petuall reporte of his praise. 

The meaninge of the author beinge only to expresse in the 
best & most rethoricall manner he could, that the Bishop's 
name was Wickham de Wickham, viz. Wickham fro his father, 
& de Wickham from the place of his birth. And that it was 
a grace for W™ Wickham to be borne in a village of his owne 
name, & a grace to the village to have soe excellent a man to 
be borne there. 

[Martin's booke.] Att Oxford, in the Universiti librarie, & 
also at New CoUedg, we finde a book called Vita Wickhami, 
written by an obscure author (for there are only two letters sett 
for hLs name) & printed about the year 1597, beinge about 39 
yeares since, and at the least 27 yeares after S"" Richard Fyennes 
did firet denye Humfry Wickham's children to be of the same 
bloode w*l> the Bishop. 

This book, as we are informed, was composed, printed, & 
geven unto New Colledg by one Martyn, who, as we coniecture» 
ether was the Lo. Seyes kinsman, or did pen, print, & geve this 
book to New Colledg, by the information, advise, "8c counsell, of 
somme of the Lo: Seyes predecessors or kindred, or at the least 
did it all to please that kindred, or to insinuat him self into their 
or somme of their favors. 


The reasons moving us for to coniecture are : 

For that there were a very smale number of the said books 

Also for that he doth exemplifye the Bishop's geneallogie 
written as he sayth by Heresius & approved by the Kinges 
Heralds, expressinge therein (cheifly, if not only) the pedegree of 
S** Rich. Fyennes, & not of Ringebone, Warner, or Bennet, 
or any other of the Bishop's kindred specifyed in his will or in 
the intayle of his landes. 

Then, in respect he indeavors to make good the reasons urged 
heretofore by S"" Richard Fyennes against Humfiy Wickham's 
claime of kindred to the Bishop, not only by a false assertion 
that John Wickham of Swaclive, w^^ was admitted probationer 
1403, was of the Knight's famely ; but also by wrongful! & 
deceiptfull layinge & controwlinge of D"" Harpsfeild (a man of 
far greater learninge & iudgment then him self) for placinge 
that John soe admitted probationer, & Richard Wickham of 
Hampshire admitted childe of Winchester 1401, amongst the 
Founder's kinsmen. Whereas Harpsfeild doth not place that 
John nor that Richard amongst the Founder's kinsmen, but an 
other John & an other Richard, w^t we confesse were of the 
Knight's famely : To witt, John, wch in the Founder's life time 
was admitted in election as his kinsman to be Warden of New 
Colledg, and Richard vf^^ was mayntayned by the Founder in 
Harte hall as his kinsman before y^ erection of the Colledg, & 
(as we conceave) admitted fellow upon the first admission of 
fellows into New Colledg. 

Againe, whereas Nicholas Wickham, w^^ was the first War- 
den of New Colledg, & Thomas Wickham, w^^ was admitted 
fellow as of the Founder's bloode 1403, the Bishop being then 
alive, are by D"" Harpsfeild placed w*^ the last mentioned John 
& Rich: Wickham amongst the Founder's kinsmen, this Martyn, 
not able to fynd any colorable cavill against them, passeth them 
over w*^ silence, least the mentioninge of them should make the 
truth appeare. 

Lastly, this Martyn sayth, that the Bishop in his will doth 
cale Fselicia Ahas his kinswoman, vvch accordipg to our copey of 
the will is false. 

Now not wthstandinge Martin's full intention was to confirme 
S"" Rich. Fyennes his kindred, & to strengthen his arguments 


urged against Humfry Wickham's claime : yet in the first chap- 
ter of his book, the said Martin affirmeth that the Bishop was 
borne in Pago sui nominis^ & therefore his name was Wickham, 
for it is granted by all that he was borne at Wickham in Hamp- 
shire : And Martin by his quotations in the margent sheweth he 
had this truth. 

Ex archiuis Collegij Winton, &c. ^ Chandeler was 

Ex Thoma Chandelero in vita Wickhami V j^ eof WeJJs. 

Ex Thoma Vasseo, or Walseo in vita eiusdem j 

AUthough in respect of the reasons aforesaid, the testimony of 
Martin ought not to be of any force against us, yet for us it is of 
great validitie ; because, if by chance (the truth inforcinge him 
there unto) he did sett downe any thinge wc^» might advantage 
Humfry Wickham's cause, it was contrary to his intent & 

Therefore this testimony of Martin's, agreeinge in this poynt 
w**> what is written in the former parte of the geneallogies in the 
ende of y^ register book, & confirmed by his quotations in the 
margent, doth playnly prove y* the Bishop's name was Wickham ; 
for that otherwise, beinge borne at Wickl^am, he would be borne 
in Pago sui nominis. 

[Camden's Brit: Godwines Catalo:] To this we add the testi- 
mony of M' W"* Camden & Bishop Godwine, who reporte that 
when William Wickham was made overseer of the Kinges 
buiidinges at Windsor, he caused these wordes, Hoc fecit fVick- 
ham^ or this made Wickham, to be ingraven in a wall of the 
said buiidinges ; whereof when some complayned to y« Kinge, as 
a thinge derrogatinge from his honor, that an other should 
seeme to beare y^ charge of his buiidinges ; and the Kinge in 
displeasure reprehendinge him for it, he answered, that by these 
words he did not ascribe the honor of the buildinge to him self, 
but his owne honor & ^ferment to that buildinge, the words noe 
way importinge that Wickham made the tower, but that the 
tower made Wickham. 

[Godwines Catalo.] Also the epitaph ingraven upon the 
Bishop's tombe in y® cathedral church at Winchester, vi^^ was 
not sett upon the tombe w^^out the approbation & allowance of 
yc Bishop's executors, (who doubtless well knew the Bishop's 
name,) doth playnly shew that his name was Wickham, for it 


beginnes thus, Wilhelmus dictus fVicamus iacet hie nece victiis, 
Longus vtrould have stoode in the verse as well as Wicamus^ 

Againe the argument alleaged before in our Answer to the Lo: 
Sey's 3 Obiect: against our claime is not heere to be omitted ; 
viz, that the usiall 8c only reason why men make their adopted 
heires to chainge their names^ is to have their landes continew 
unto their owne name, & not to the name of the towne where 
they were borne. Aud therefore the Bishop causinge the Per- 
rottes to take the name of Wickham, is a stronge proofFe that 
the Bishop's name was Wickham as well a patre as a loco, for 
as Martin truly sayth he was borne in Pago sui nominis. 

Moreover, the pardon granted by Kinge Edw, the 3: to W"* 
Wickham Bishop of Winchester, is a strong evidence that the 
Bishop's name from his father was Wickham, in respect that 
any misnomen in a pardon makes it voyde. And the Bishop 
for many yeares together havinge beene sifted & queestioned 
for his estate & life, could not be soe ignorant, nor would 
not be so careles, as to take a pardon in the name of the towne 
where he was borne, & not in his owne paternall name. 

Furthermore it appeares by the records & register book of the 
Bishop's Colledges, that Nicholas, Richard, Thomas, John, & 
Percevall Wickham were of the same bloode w^ the Bishop : 
but there is noe profTe nor probabilitie that they were of his 
bloode by his mother's side, for she was the daughter to Boude 
& grandchild to Stratton, & therefore it may well be ^sumed 
that the Bishop's name was Wickham from his father.

In English thus : 

Upon the death of W™ Edington, the Munks of Winchester, 
tlie Kinge sollicitinge the busines w^h great care, chose for their 
Bishop W™ Wicham ; he was borne in the yeare of our Lord 
1342, in the Diocesse of Winchester ; his father was John Longe 
as somme calle him, as others John Perrott, his mother was 
Sibill ; y« place of his birth was a village called Wicham, whence 
somme calle him W"* of Wicham : but many reasons present 
themselves to me for w^l* I may not be of their opinion, & vf^^ 
make me think that Wicham was the right name of his ancestors ; 
for soe he calles him self in his will, soe in those statutes w^** he 
made for his Colledges, & often in other places, that is W™ 





Wicham not of Wicham. Soe the Kinges grantes wherebyrbe 
had power geven him to build CoUedges, & soe the statutes of 
the realme calle him : besides, the first Warden of his Colledg 
in Oxford, was Nicholas Wicham, his kinsman by bloode ; More- 
over there were chosen into the same Colledg John, Richard, & 
Thomas Wicham as his kinsmen, who, by vertue of the statutes, 
were admitted to a better estate & progative then others chosen 
into the same Colledg; besides, in the raigne of Kinge John 
there was one Ralf Wicham, & in the time of Kinge Henry one 
Robert Wicam, knight, out of whose stock, famely, & kindred 
came our Wicham, Though, according to the chainges of hu- 
mane affares, his parentes had but small meanes. And these 
-thinges I rather mention, that I may take from them that blott 
where wth somme have stayned them, as if they had beene of 
servile condition. [That geneallogie at this dale is extant.] 

[The ould geneallogie.] This testimonie of D"" Harpsfeild, 
being an excellent schoUer, a New Colledg man, and noe kin to 
the Founder, & written before the controversie betweene Hum- 
fry Wickham and S"" Richard Fyennes, is of it self sufficient to 
prove the Bishop's name to be Wicham, & that he was descended 
from our famely : Yet in confirmation of this we produce a 
geneallogie of greate antiquitie, far more agreeable to the 
Bishop's will, & the intayle of his landes, then the geneallogies 
written on the cover of the register book of Winchester Col- 
ledg, & therefore of more credit, whereby it appeares that the 
Bishop's father's -name was John Wicam. 

And in respect not only the Bishop's father, his sisters, & their 
progenie are delineated in this geneallogie, but also the succes- 
sion 8c kindred of divers other gentlemen of good rank & qua- 
litie, livinge longe since & not in these later times, we conceave 
it doth only proue the antiquitie thereof, but also cleere it from 
all suspition, that it should ever be drawne purposely to credit 
our cause. 

The second Robert Wicham, in the pedegree drawne by 
Robert Cook, Clarenceux, had two brothers Thomas & Richard, 
wc^ Richard (as by an ancient court roll then shewed did ap- 
peare) was of the bloode of the Bishop. 

[See y« deede of intayle of Swaclive.] And by a deede made 
330 Edw. 3i the mannor of Swaclive was geven to Katherine, the 


wife of Robert Wicam for life, the remayoder to the sjud Tho- 
mas of Wicam for life, the remaynder to the said Richard of 
Wicam in tayle, the remaynder unto the said Thomas oi Wicam 
in tayle, the remaynder unto W™ of Wicam, cosen to the said 
Thoc & Rich: & to the heires of the boddie c^ the said William, 
the remaynder unto the right heires of the said Thomas. 

[The Bishop was borne 1324; this intayle was made 1859; 
the Bidiop made Preist 1361 ; and consecrat Bishop 1366. 
Here also consider of their psentinge him to y^ Parsonage of 
Swadive, their assentinge to j^ imprc^riatinge thereof and 
their conveyance of it & of y« gifte of y« Vicarage unto him.] 
This William Wickham named in the last mentioned deede 
oosen to Thomas 8c Rich: of Wicham, was he that was after 
Bi^iop of Wincliester, as by the last m^itioned deede & court 
roll aforesaid may well be coniectured. And by the age of said 
W™ Wicham,* beinge borne in the 18^ yeare of Edward the 
Second, in the yeare of our Lord 1324, & receaved into the 
service of Edward the Third in the yeare 1344, and about the 
dme of the date of the said deede made overseer c^ the Kinases 
boildinges at Windsor: and by his pres^itation to Swaclive by 
the Wickhams & their selling him the parsonage & ppetuall 
donation of jr^ vicarage. 

And alldiough it cannot be shewed in what d^ree the said 
W™ of Wickham was to the said Thomas & Richard, yet it is 
apparent that it was in a very neere d^ree, for that otherwise 
they would not have intayled the mannor of Swaclive upon him, 
it beinge the most ancient state of the Wickhams. 

[Armes.] Lasdy, that the Founder was a gendeman borne & a 
Widkbam his coate of Armes doth witnes, w<* are the same the 
Widdiams of Swaclive now geve, & did geve before the Bishop 
was borne, & w<^ therefore but by descent the Bishop could not 
have geven. 

That the armes w<* the Founder gave doe properly belonge 
unto the Wickhams lordes of Swaclive, Hugh Cotgrave, Rich- 
mond Herald, at one time, viz. anno 1569, and Robert Cook, 
Clarenoevx Kinge of Armes, & Roger Dormer at another time, 
vix. anno 1571 ; and afterward W™ Camden, Clarenceux, as- 
signinge the bull's head for the Crest, thereunto have under. 
their faandes iostifyed & confirmed. And now of late they have 


beene confirmed unto them by the officers of armes mider the 
scale of their office. 

If these armes had beene geven the Founder in regard of his 
owne worth, he beinge a clergie man, & soe in those daies single, 
they had dyed w^^ him. And should not at any time have beene 
blazoned vf^^ the difference of a younger brother, nor ought not 
to have beene quartered w^^ any other coate. 

But this coate of 2 chevrons betweene 8 roses was longe since 
seene by one John Vnderhill, blazoned in S*^ Martin's Church 
in Oxford, with the difference of a mullet, & crested sometime 
w^ a miter & sometime w^ a bull's head, & then seemed to him 
to be of greate antiquitie ; and W™ Camden, Clarenqeux, hath 
allowed us to beare the bull's head for our Crest. 

And we doubt not if the Lo: Sey shall be questioned to 
this effect, and answer upon his honor, he will confesse that 
John Vnderhill aforesaid, sometime fellow oi New Colledg, 
beinge examined as a witnes in the Chancery, in a suite 
betweene Humfry Wickham complaynant, against Thomas 
Stempe & others def £% did there depose to the effect afore- 
And as it doth appeare unto us by a little note found of late 
amongst Humfry Wickam's writinges, the same coate, w*** the 
same difference of a mullet, was then also seene in the church of 
Thame in the countie of Oxford, of great antiquitie. And there 
upon the sixt daie of September 1636, W"* Wickham of Abing- 
don, & John his sonne, 8c one Wi" Lane, & others, went into 
the said church to search for the said coate, 8c there in the 
middle windowe on the north side of the boddie or middle ile of 
the said church found it blazond w*^ the difference of a mullet 
whole & undefaced. 

And we finde that Humfry Wicham did testifie unto the Lo: 
Burleigh that he the said Humfry had also seene in S^ Martin's 
Church in Oxford aforesaid, the Bishop's armes of great anti- 
quitie, blazond w^ the difference of a younger brother. 

And that the said Humfry, at the funerall of S»^ Rich: Fyennes, 
had seene the said S^ Richardes coate armor offered up by 
Somersett, herald of armes, quartered w^h the Bishop's armes. 

[The Lo: Sey dwells at Broughton. The 12th of Sep: 1637 
me self & Thomas Harper did see this coate in Broughton 
Church.] And as we are credably informed on thursdaie the 
12 of Jannuarie 1635, in a litle windowe on the north side of 


Broughton Church next to the belfry, & neere to the rooffe of 
y® Church, the Bishop's armes were seene quartered, but what 
the coate was wherew*^*» they were quartered the parties could 
not well descerne, but by their description, it was after this man- 
ner : a feild Az. charged w**> a bird Arg. spread in this manner." 

Upon such prooflFes as these, when S"" Richard Fyennes denyed 
Humfry Wickham to beare this coate of 2 cheverons belweene 
three roses, & claymed it for the Perrottes, it was allowed to 
Humfry Wickham by the Heraldes aforesaid, w**> the approba^ 
tion of the Duke of Norfolk, then Earle Marshall ; and now to 
question it againe is to question the credit of y® Heralds & Court 
of Honor, 

And in aequitie we ought not to be forced to prove these 
thinges againe, in respect these armes were but in glasse, & that 
somme of them are, & the rest might have beene, broaken & 
defaced, & the men w<^ could & did then testifie them are now dead. 

Yet at this present, besides the coate w*** the difference of the 
third house, to be seene in Thame Church as aforesaid, there is 
to be seene in the east window of the chancel at Swaclive (beinge 
the ancient seate of the Wickhams) in severall peeces of glasse, 
dismembered & misplaced, the greatest parte of an armes w<^^ 
beareth Argent, 2 cheverons Sables betweene 3 roses Gules. 

[Anno 1637. The 12tli of Sept: 1637, Wm Wickham & 
Tho Harper did see this coate in Welsbome Church.] And in 
the east ende window of the south side of the Church of Welles- 
borne in Warwick shire, in Aprill 1636, these armes thus im- 
paled ^ were seene by Thom: Harper & John Wilson, & testefied 
by Bartholemew Dobson, minister there. 

And one Midleton lyeth buried in the chancell there who dyed 
the 4t^ of August 143 l.c 

Thomas Harper is servant to Humfry Wickham of Swa- 
clive, & John Wilson is a weaver in Warwick. 

The crosse in the Midleton's armes is not soe much longer 
one way then the other, as is there decyphered, & over the crosse 
there is a lambeaux vf^^ 3 labells Argent, & the 2 quarters that 
bear Or, are after this manner ^ diapred Or. 

* Here the arms are drawn, viz. 41y the Bishop's coat and a bird displayed. 

^ Here the coat is drawn, yiz. the Bishop's coat impaling Quarterly Gules and 
Or, in the first quarter a cross flory Or, Midleton. It is engraved in Dugdale's 
Warwickshire, the cross flory surmounted by a label. 

* The Epitaph is not in Dugdale. 

' Here is sketched one of the usual diapered patterns. 


Also at this present, in the top of the cloyster of the Cathe- 
drall Church in Canterbury, at the very coi'ner, where the west 
& north sides ioyne together, these armes of two cheverons be- 
tweene 3 roses are to be seene carved in stone,e not placed there 
in any respect to the Bishop, he beinge dead longe before the 
buildinge of those cloisters. 

[Witnes John Philpott, Somerset.] And in the said Cathe- 
drall Church, neere to the south doore of the crosse ile, betweene 
the boddie of the church & the quier, these armes of two cheve- 
rons betweene 3 roses, where wtl»in these 2 yeares, viz. 1634 (and 
we thinke still are) to be seene ingraven in brasse upon the 4 
corners of the gravestone of one Agnes, wife of W™ Faunt & 
Edward Bolney, who was there buried anno Dni 1539, & in 
somme of the scutchions these armes are quartered w^^ her hus- 
band's armes. 

Now the Bolneys are allowed to be the Founder's kinsmen, w^li 
we conceave they cannot prove but only by the marriage w*h this 
Agnes, except they clayme it by the childish geneallogies at the 
ende of the register book of Winchester Colledg, w^b sayth that 
Bolney of Sussex married wth Jone the daughter of Agnes, whose 
mother was Matild, & whose grandmother was Alice the Bishop's 
father's sister. 

If it be alleaged out of Somersett's letter that a cheveron wad 
the armes of the Companie of Carpenters, & that the Founder, 
before he was Bishop, in respect he was a carpenter or had good 
skill in architecture, did use a scale of one cheveron betweene 
3 roses, & that afterward he did use a scale w^^ 2 cheverons be- 
twene 3 roses, w^^ in his opinion was geven to the Bishop for 
his skill in architecture. 

If the cheveron were given in armes to y^ Carpenters since the 
Bishop gave that coate, then was it not geven to the Bishop for 
his skill in architecture. 

If this coate had beene geven to the Bishop, it had dyed wV^ 
him, & ought not to have beene quartered wth the coate armor 
of S^^ Rich: Fyennes & offered up . at his funerall by Somersett 

' • See Willement's Heraldic Notices of Canterbury Cathedral, 4to. 1827, p. 108 : 
but this coat is there assigned to Richard Clifford, Archdeacon of Canterbury in 
1397, afterwards Bishop of Worcester, Bishop of London, and a Cardinal ; which 
appropriation is confirmed by the inscription formerly affixed to the same arms in' 
a window of the Chapter House, ** Ricard' Clifford, Episcopus," (ibid. pp. 66, 


him self: nether should it have beene quartered wtt the Midle- 
ton's armes as in Wellesborne Church in Warwickshire, nor 
v/^^ Bolney's or Faunt's armes, as in the Cathedrall Church in 
Canterbury, nether should it have beene blazoned w^ the dif- 
ference of a younger brother, as it was in the churches of Thame 
& of S' Martin in Oxford, crested sometime w**» a bull's head, & 
sometime w*** a miter. 

Thomas Wickham, lord of Swaclive, married the daughter 
& heire of W™ Doyly, & by her did geve one cheveron betweene 
3 fowerleaved grasses like roses ; and haply the Founder might 
use this scale, beinge ignorant at the first what was his paternall 
coate, & afterward upon better knowledg he might alter his scale. 

Also, if Somerset in his letter to the Lo: Burleigh affirme that 
in the books belonginge to the office of armes, it doth appeare 
that the propper coate of the Wickhams was far diflFerent from 
the Bishop's, & that the Lo: Sey urge it against us : 

Let the difference be showed in the books, & then let it be 
proved to be the coate of the Wickhams lords of Swaclive, for 
we denye not but that there might be an other famely of the 
Wickhams, w** might geve a coate of armes different from the 
Bishop's & ours. 

It seemes by one book in the office of armes, that the coate of 
one famely of the Wickhams is a feild Ermine, bordered Gules, 
garnished w*^ 9 or more mullets Or; and the Lord Sey, to prove 
this to be the coate of the Wickhams of Swaclive, hath sometime 
alleaged that this very coate of greate antiquitie is to be seene iu 
divers windowes of the Church of Swaclive : and in that very ile 
of y« Church where the Wickhams lords of Swaclive have 
usially beene buried. 

We confesse that in the windowes of Swaclive Church and 
chancell there are 4 severall coates w^^ seeme to be of great 
antiquitie, each of wch is bordered Gules, & garnished wtl» 6 
mulletts Or, peirced Sables, wch we suppose might be geven by 
somme of the Wickhams of Swaclive in respect of some matches 
w*^ the heires of other houses. 

But there are not any armes in Swaclive Church that beare 
Ermins bordered Gules, nor any w^^ hath the border Gules 
garnished w^** aboue 6 mulletts Or. 

Yet we conceave that Robert Wickham, the sonne of S^ Ro- 
bert Wickham, by his match w^^ the daughter and heire of S"^ 



W"" of the Lee, did or might geve a coate pouldred Ermins, 
but not as his paternal! coate. 

If, because Percivall Wickham in his admission is not said to 
be of Swalecliffe, as he is in the book of swearinge, it shall be 
objected that the booke of swearinge is not waranted by the 
booke of admission, we answer that in the admission of the 
Founder's kinsmen it is usiall not to sett downe the place of their 
birth, because they are all* admitted vbicunque sint oriundi : and 
for John Sands was admitted 1412; Jo: Aas 1413; Bartholo- 
mew Bolney 1415; John Mavile 1427; Thomas Spore 1424; 
Thomas Gilbert 1462; and one Rich. Fyennes 1465, all Founder's 
kinsmen : but when they be sworne the notary is bound by his 
oath to note\pticularly the place of their byrth, id si qptis fuerit 
redegatur in jyublicum. 

Notes added on a fly-leaf by William Wickham : 

The 12th dale of September 1637, W™ Wickham of Abing- 
don & Thomas Harper of Swalecliffe did see the armes wch 
Bishop Wickham did geve quartered w^h an other coate of 
armes in a window in Broughton Church, where the Lo: Sey 
dwelleth; and in a window in Wellesborne Church in War- 
wickshire we did see them impaled w^^ an other coate w^h wee 
were tould was the Midleton's armes, & in both these churdies 
these armes doe seeme to be of great antiquitie. 

The 13*^ of September 1637, Thomas Harper aforesaid asked 
Thomas Wickham, now of Swalecliffe, if he were any kyn to 
Humfry now Lord of Swalecliffe, and the said Thomas reply'd 
that he did not know nor ever heard that he or his ^decessors 
ever were, or did at any tyme repute them selves to be kyn to 
the said Humfry or his pdecessors, till of late that one of the Lo: 
Seyes sonnes did say that it was likely that he the said Thomas 
& the said Humfry were of the same bloode and kyndred ; be- 
cause their pdecessors lived soe neere together & were of one & 
the same name, 8c that if he the said Thomas Wickham should 
deny his kyndred to the said Humfry, the said Thomas Wick- 
bam's children were never likely to be chosen into New Colledge*

Amongst the miscellaneous manuscripts in the Library of the College 
of Arms are eight folio volumes, containing Collections formed with a 
view to a History of the County of Derby. 

The Collector, the Rev. Samuel Pegge, LL.D. and F.S.A. bom at 
Chesterfield 5th November 1704. was inducted to the Rectory of Whit- 
tington 11th November 1751, and died there on the 14th of February 
1796. His publications on various subjects of antiquarian research are 
numerous and valuable. His son, Samuel Pegge, Esq. born iu 1731, 
Gentleman of his Majesty's Privy Chamber, and one of the Esquires of 
the King's Household, is also well known to the antiquarian world as the 
author of the work entitled " Curialia." He died 22d May 1 800, 
having presented, as is believed, his father s Derbyshire Collections 
to his friend the late John Nichols, Esq. the Historian of Leicester- 
shire, who in 1 809 disposed of them to the Members of the College of 

Until recently they were in a confused and ill-arranged condition, 
when the Rev. Joseph Hunter, the Historian of South Yorkshire, a 
gentleman well acquainted with the County of Derby, kindly undertook 
the examination of them, and by a very judicious arrangement under 
the several heads of *' Parochial matter," *' Biography," and " Miscel- 
laneous," has rendered the MSS. more available to all persons interested 
in the History of this County. Mr. Hunter's short summary of the 
principal contents of the different volumes, now prefixed to each, 
will show what the Topographer has to expect from them, and espe- 
cially the several parishes to which the Collections more particularly 

It may be remarked that the following parishes are wanting : Castle- 
ton, Glossop, Hathersage, Hope, and Tides well. As these are all in 
the immediate neighbourhood of Whittington, there can be no doubt 
that Dr. Pegge must have formed considerable collections for them j 
and as it is to be regretted that the collection should be imperfect, it is 
hoped this notice may lead to the discovery of what he left respecting 

Memoirs of Dr. Pegge, written by his son, will be found in the Gen- 


tleman's Magazine for 1796, and in the sixth volume of Nichols's 
'* Literary Anecdotes of the Eighteenth Century.*' 

The only portions of his Derbyshire Collections that were published

A small quarto volume, entitied " Woolley's History of Der- 
byshire," accompanies Dr. Pegge's collection. 

Prefixed to it is a letter addressed to M^ George Rogers, Mercht at 
Mile -end, near London, signed " W™ WooUey." At the end of the 
same volume will be found some extracts from Inquisitions post mortem 
of persons connected with the County of Derby, apparently in the 
handwriting of Samuel Pegge, followed by some other miscellaneous 


matters. This volume was obtained by the College at the same time as 
the other MSS. 

There is also in the Library of the College a folio volume (of 286 
pages) of Derbyshire Church Notes taken about the year 1710, by 
Francis Bassano, which was presented to the College by Samuel Lysons, 
Esq. and his brother the Rev. Daniel Lysons, in 1 8 1 7. It will be found 
to contain a curious and interesting collection of Church notes : many 
of the monuments therein described have long since disappeared. 

More than fifty volumes of MSS. chiefly consisting of collections re- 
lative to Derbyshire, were bequeathed to the British Mnseum in 1827 
by Adam Wolley, of Matlock, co. Derby, Esq. and form the Addi-

Coningsby, of co. Hereford. 

No. 6697 and 6698 are of similar miscellaneous contents. 

No. 6699 is an Index to Mr. WoUey's series of original charters 
relating to Derbyshire (originally bound up in twelve folio volumes) 
now deposited with his other collections in the British Museum. 

No. 6700 is '* Breviarium Recordorum Regiorum in Capell^ Rotulo- 
rum et in Turri Londinensi remanentium, de maneriis, terris, et tene- 
mentis in com. Derb. collect, per Nathan Ringros, Gen." with addi-

on points of law.

shire, from 2 Hen. YII. to 44 Eliz. with indexes of places and names. 

No. 6711 contains transcripts of the Cartae Antiquae in the Tower 
during the reigns of Richard I , John, and Henry III., with an index. 

No. 6712 is a similar volume of extracts from the Charter, Patent, 
and Clause Rolls from 1 to 31 Hen. III. 

No. 6713 is a large folio volume, containing a Treatise on the Customs 
of the Cornish Stannaries, composed in 1586, by Mr. Hoblyn, Town 
Clerk of Bodmin, and other matters relating thereto. 

No. 6714 relates to the priories of Tutbury, Brewood, Stafford, and 
Deulacres, co. Stafford, and Dale and Repton, co. Derby. It belonged 
to Mr. Astle in 1 766.

in the possession of Mrs. Dakeyne, at Chesterfield, his widow. 

Thomas Birds, Esq. of Eyam, lately deceased, left a considerable 
collection of original deeds and other papers relating to this County. 

Mr. William Bateman, of Middleton Hall, near Bakewell (the only 
son of Thomas Bateman, Esq. late High Sheriff of the County) died in 
June 1835, leaving a large and valuable collection of materials, both 
printed and manuscript, for the History of Derbyshire. 




In Sir Harris Nicolas*s biographical notices of the deponents in the 
" Scrope and Grosvenor Roll," vol. ii. p. 245, will be found a memoir 
of Sir Guy Bryan, one of the most distinguished characters in the reign 
of Edward III. He was summoned to Parliament in 1350, elected 
K.G. in 1370, and died in 1390, at the age, most extraordinary in that 
warlike time, of ninety years. It is noticed in the same article, p. 250, 
that there has been considerable discrepancy and uncertainty in the 
published accounts of his marriages and issue. The following documents, 
some of which have been there referred to, contribute to throw consider- 
able light on a subject which is still attended with partial obscurity.

CO. Pembroke, to Guy de Bryan, jun. 1331. (Escaet. 5 Edw. III. Pars

Sir Guy de Bryan, sen. Knight, died in 23 Edw. III. when his son 
and heir Guy was thirty years of age. Inq. p. mort. 

Elizabeth^ daughter of William de Montacute^ Earl of Salisbury, 
widow in 1 2 Edw. III. of Giles Lord Badlesmere, and in 22 Edw. III. 
of Hugh Lord le Despenser, was in 25 Edw. III. the wife of Sir Guy de 
Bryan^ as appears by a hne. She died 31 May 33 Edw. III. when the 
following Inquisition was taken : 

Esc. 33 Edw. III. 1 No. 42. — Inq. capta apud Bokeland in 
com Hertford. — quod Elizabetha quae fuit uxor Hugonis le 
Despenser defuncti, tenuit ad totam vitam suam nomine dotis

et Elizabetha uxor tenuerunt, S^c. apparet. Et dicunt quod Eli- 
zabetha obiit xxxjo die Maii ult. preterit. 

In 40 Edw. III. Robert Jltzpayne, Chevr, granted to Sir Guy de 
Bryan and others the manoi: of Ackford Fitzpayne in the co. of Dorset, 
the manor of Stourton in Wilts^ and the manors of Brighthampton, 
Spekington^ Staple, and Sedene in Somersetshire, and the advowsons

presents a shield bearing quarterly^ Three bars surmounted by a bendlet, 
Ponynges, and Three lions passant surmounted by a bendlet, Fitz- 
payne \ on the sinister point of the shield is placed a helmet with 
mantling, and bearing for a crest a large griffon's head with wings dis- 
played. On one side of the helmet is the badge of a crowned key (see 
pp. 60, 68, of this volume), on the other a unicorn, statant. Legend, 
^iOtUum Eobecti l^on^nce^ militis. This is engraved in the Gentleman's

sents, on a helmet, a boar's head, gorged with a coronet, the crest of 
Cheyne. The third, of the same small size, shows the face of an animal, 
probably intended for a camel, in allusion to the owner's name.

To the copy before us are appended the Seals of

thus written on the labels, but evidently by the draughtsman, and there 
are no sign-manuals. The names show it to have been the first of the four 
parts of the indenture, destined for the Earl of Northumberland. The 
seal of the Earl of Ormond seems to represent a bird's nest placed in a 
tripod. The second seal is wholly flattened ; and the third is so much 
defaced and broken, that it can only be perceived that it once repre- 
sented a shield of arms. The deed is indorsed : '^ Irro"* in dors* clans*

« Here again the genealogist was wrong : it was William who died without issue, 
and Guy who had issue Philippa and Elizabeth (see p. 253). Philippa married 
first Sir John Devereux ; and secondly, about July 1398, Henry third Lord Scrope 
of Masham, K. G. but died s. p. Nov. 19» 1406. Elizabeth was married to ;Sir 
Robert Lovel, by whom she had Maud, her daughter and heiress, married first (not 
secondly, as in Scrope and Grosvener Roll, vol. ii. p. 253) to Sir Richard Stafford, 
by whom she was mother of Avicia their heiress, afterwards Countess of Wiltshire ; 
and secondly to John Earl of Arundel, K. G. who died May 12, 1435, by whom 
she had issue Humphrey Earl of Arundel, who died in 1437, set. 9. The will of 
Maud Countess of Arundel is dated May 11, 1436, and proved Oct. 25 that year.

don, bur. 13 Nov. 1664. 

Sir John Lawrence, of Tver, and of Chelsea, near London, Knt. and 
Bart, was the son and heir of Thomas Lawrence, of London, citizen and 
goldsmith, who, according to the Buckinghamshire Visitation of 1634, 
was " descended from Lawrence of Ijancashire." Thomas Lawrence 
died October 28, 1593, set. 54, leaving a widow and five surviving of 
eleven children. The whole family are represented kneeling in a moral 
monument at Chelsea church, which is engraved in Faulkner's History 
of that parish, 1829, vol. i. p. 221. It is surmounted by the arms of 
Lawrence, Arg. a cross ragulee Gu. those of the Merchants Adventurers, 
and those of the Goldsmiths* Company. His wife was Martha, daugh- 
ter of Sir Anthony Cage of London. Of his daughters, Mary was the 
wife of William Jackson, Esq. (Visit. 1634) ; and Sarah, of Richard 
Col vile of Newton in the isle of Ely. The latter died 17 Apr. 1631, 
set. 40. leaving eight sons and two daus. and was buried in Chelsea 
church (see her epitaph in Faulkner, i. 221). ''Jane Lawrance, gen- 
tl woman, buried at Chelsea, Aug. 31, 1633,*' was probably another 

• "Youngest sonne,'* and a Turkey merchant; he died 14 Oct 1661, Kt. 30, and 
was buried at Chelsea. See his poetical epitaph in Faulkner's History of that 
parish, i. 2^2S* 


Sar John Law renoe, of Chelsea, and oi Delaford in Iver, was knighted 
at RoystOD, Jan. 26, 1609-10 ^ and created a Baronet Oct. 9, 1628. 
He died Nov. 13^ 1 638, set. 50, and was buried the next day in Chelsea 
church. On his monument the Lawrence coat is differenced with a 
chief Aznre, charged with three leopard's heads, evidently taken from 
tiie arms of the Groldsmiths (see the epitaph in Fanlkner, i. 222). He 
married Grissell, dan. and coh. of Gervase Gibbon of Benenden, Kent, 
who anrriyed him, and was bnried at Chelsea, March 22, 1675. They 
had issoe seven sons and four daughters. Six of these are named above 
from the Iver register. Grace was baptised and bnried at Hackney in 
1613. Those who are mentioned in the Visitation of 1634, and were 
probably then snrriving, are John, Robert, Sampson, Henry; Anne, 
Frances, GriselL The last vras married to Isaac Lawrence, of Chelsea, 
and of Sherdington, co. Glooc. and had issue. This Isaac Lawrence 
was baptised at Badgeworth, co. Glouc. 30 March 1614, and bnried 
there March 3J, 1684; Grisell became his administratrix, Apr. 19, 

Sir John Lawrence,^ the second Baronet, married Mary, second 
daughter of Sir Thomas Hampson, of Taplow, co. Bucks. Bart, probably 
the same Lady Lawrence who was bnried at Chelsea, Oct. 11,1 664 ; by 
whom be had issue Mary, who died 13 Dec 1649, aet.3, and was buried 
at Taplow^ and his son and heir, Thomas. Sir John was living in 1676, 
when his son is styled *' Esquire " in the Chelsea register. 

Sir Thomas Lawrence, the third Baronet, was buried at Chelsea, 
Apr. 25, 1714. He married Anne,? daughter of ■ English,^ 

and bad issue Anne, baptised at Chelsea, May 4, 1675, and John, 
baptised there Nov. 5, 1676. ''Anne, Lady Lawrence" vras buried 
at Chelsea, Nov. 2, 1723. 

John Lawrence of Chelsea, Esq. heir apparent of Sir Thomas Law- 
rence, Bart, and Anne his wife, sold an estate at Chelsea to Lord Cheyne, 
March 26, 1706 (Fanlkner, i. 262). His wife, Elizabeth, was buried 
at Chelsea, Aug. 7, 1701. 

Ann, dau. of Mr. Robert Bowyer,> bap. 1 Feb. 1631. 

' This Sir John Lawrence, about the year 1644, restored the inscriptioii on Sir 
Thomas More's monument in Chelsea chorch, causing it to be recut on a hand* 
some table of black marble. In Faulkner, 1829, toL iL 133, he is incorrectlj 
identified with Sir John Lawrence, Lord Biayor of London during the plague in 
1665, whose coat of arms was differenced by a canton Ermines.

This early charter (temp. Richard Bishop of Winchester 1 1 73— 
1189) was copied by Richard St. George into the book now the MS. 
Harl. 6148^ f. 140, with the following memorandum: '* Ista Cbarta 
cam sigillo jam in custodia Oliveri S^i Johannis.'* On the opposite 
page are some imperfect notes from very ancient charters, relative to 
Patrisey in Surrey, which were in possession of the same party. 

It is not perfectly certain where the City Gaol was ; but in all pro- 
bability it was Newgate^ that being the City prison in the reign of King 
John. (Stow's Survey.)

There are few genealogical documeDts more interesting thau tbe 
Heralds' Certificates of Funerals j and, as far as they extend, they are 
of equal importance with the Visitations. They commence in 1567, 
pursuant to an order of the Earl Marshal made in that year, and con-* 
tinue to the close of the following century -, after which period they 
gradually fell into disuse. See Grimaldi*s Origines Genealogicse, p. 
255 } where, at p. 261, 262, are published those of Fulke Grevill, Lord 
Brooke, 1628, and Archbishop Accepted Frewen, 1664. 

From the circumstance of their having been chiefly preserved among 
the official records of the College of Arms, their merits have scarcely 
been appreciated except by the professional herald 3 the following are 
therefore given as specimens of a series of records, the whole of which 
are well deserving of publication. 

The present are extracted from a small parcel of originals, '* found 
in Mr. Clarencieux Lee*s stud ye at his death,*' and now in the posses- 
sion of J. B. Nichols, Esq. F.S.A. 

To the records of these Certificates in the College of Arms, the armo- 
rial bearings of the deceased are generally attached.

The Charch of Withyam was almost entirely rebuilt in the reign of 
Charles the Second, in consequence of the stmctare having been de^ 
stroyed by one of those violent storms from which the churches in the 
hilly districts of Kent and Sussex have frequently suffered. This cata- 
strophe happened on the 16th of June 1663 ; and the following curious 
ootice rating to it, occurs in Baxter's " Certainty of the World of 
Spirits "Fully Evinced/' 1691 : " The Church where the present Lord 
Chamberlain, Earl of Dorset and Middlesex^ his ancestors* monuments 
were^ was torn by lightning that came in at the steeple, melted the 
l^lls, ^d went up to the chancel^ and there tore the monuments to 
]^eces. J saw pieces of the monuments which had some of the golden 
letters, which 9> ti:nly worthy lady brought home> that went from 
Tunbridge Watere to see the Church." 

Whether tiiere now exists any particular account of these ancient 
monuments I am not aware ; but it appears from C<^i]^s*s Peerage 
that some of them were to the memory of :

The father of Humfrey, Edward, was here buried 1459. 
Sir John Sackville was buried here 1557. (Strype.) 
Sir Richard Sackville, in 8 Eliz. desired burial at Withyam. 
The great Lord Treasurer Buckhurst, the first Earl of Dorset, directed 
in his will " that my bodie be buried in the church of Withiam in Sus- 
sex, namelie within the isle and chapel there appropriate to the Sack- 
villes my ancestors, and with and amongst the rest of my progenitors 
there interred.*' Collins states, on the authority of Wood's AthenaB 
Oxon. that his remains were deposited in Westminster Abbey 3 but it 
will be seen in the next page, that his coffin is now at Withyam. The 
fact is, that the principal ceremonies of his obsequies were solemnised 
at Westminster, where Dr. Abbot, afterwards Archbishop of Canter- 
bury, preached the funeral sermon 3 but the body was conveyed to Uie 
cemetery of his ancestors.

I. Id the centre of the Chapel is a magnificent tomb, consisting of a 
table monument^ Cfi which the figure of a youth is reclining, whilst on 
either side of the tomb are his father and mother, intently gazing upon 
him, and kneeling in easy postures as if they were just come to the spot 
for that purpose^ The youth reclines on his right arm^ his left hand 
holding a skull, resting on his thigh. His mother kneels, contemplat- 
ing his countenance, her head resting on her right hand, and her left

At the west end of the tomb are these lines in capitals : 

Stand not amaz'd (Reader) to see us shead 
From drowned eyes vaiile offerings to the dead ; 
For he whose sacred ashes here doth lye 
Was the great hopes of all our Familly. 
To blaze whose vertues is but to detract 
From them, for in them none can be exact 
So grave and hopefull was his youth, 
So deare a freind to piety and truth. 
He scarce knew sin, but what curst nature gave, 
And yet grim death hath snatch'd him to his grave. 
He jiever to his parents was un^eind 
But in his early leaving them behind ; 
And UQwe hath left us, and for e'er is gon, 
What Mother would not weep for such a Son ? 
Majr this faire monument then never fade, 
Or be by blasting time or age decayed ; 
Then the succeeding times to all may tell 
Here lieth one that liv'd and dyed well. 
Here lyes the thirteenth child and seaventh son. 
Who in his thirteenth yeare his race had run. 
Thomas Sackville.

III. A mural monument, byFlaxman, represents in alto-relievo a female 
(the Duchess Arabella-Diana) in plain full drapery, seated in front of 
an urn -, her head resting on her right hand, and her left on her knee. 
Above is a medallion of the deceased, front faced. 

Under this marble are deposited the remains of George John 
Frederick, Duke of Dorset, who was killed by a fall from his 
horse in the vicinity of Dublin, on the 14th day of February, 
A.D. 1815, havivg just attained the age of 21 years. In the 
highest rank he was humble, amidst the temptations of youth his 
morals were exemplary; his reason strengthened by early culture, 
his mind enlightened by knowledge, his manners formed by 
benevolence, his virtues founded on religion, rendered him the 
delight of his friends, the hope of his country. His premature 
death was by two Nations deplored as a publick calamity ; but to 
those who loved him, his virtues supply a consolatory sorrow, 
but not as without hope ; for, through the mercy of their Re- 
deemer, the spirits of just men made perfect shall meet to part 
no more.

females, of the size of life, kneeling before an urn, (the Countess of 
Plymouth and Countess De la Warr) 5 the one behind places her hand 
before her face, but not so close as to conceal her features : 



To the memory of Arabella Diana Ducliess of Dorset; thi 
hours of her last illness were few, and her death sudden ; bu 
her sorrowing daughters had the consolation of knowing that sh 
was not unprepared to meet it, for in her was all the piety of 
Christian, extensive charity to the indigent, and constancy i 
exercising the duties which adorn and render happy domesti 
life. She died August the 1st, 1825, in the 59th year of ht

O God I Thy will be done ! 

To the memory of Anne, the wife of Rich** Cheslyn, of Langley Priory, Esq'. 

She was the second daughter of Thomas Barber, of Derby, E8q^ 

An excellent heart and amiable manners 

insured her the esteem of an extensive acquaintance ; 

but her delicate form of body, and extreme sensibility of mind, 

tended to shorten her life, and she died beloved by all who knew her, 

and greatly bewailed by her husband and children, 

on the 10th day of August 1823, in her 54th year. 

Accept, blest shade, the tributary tear 

That mourns thy exit from a world like this ; 
Forgive the wish that would have kept thee here, 

And stayM thy progress to the seat of bliss. 
Tho' thou art free from mortal care. 

Thy spirit fled to realms above ; 
Still shalt thou be to memory dear. 

And ever claim thy husband^s love.'

In the Additional MS. 5937, Brit. Mas. (which containB tlie genealo- 
gical collections of James Strangeniaa and Sir Richard St. George, Cla- 
reacenx, in the r^gDS of Q. Eliz. and James I. similar to those in MSS. 
Lansd. 860j A. B.) at f, 203 is a transcript in the haadwriljog of Sir 
Henry St. Geoige (grandson of Sir Richard, into whose possession the 
MS. sabseqnently came), thug headed, " Notes of some Familyes of 
Staffordshire, taken by Leland, being his owne hand writing, being 
loose in folio 2? of this Booke, which I have transcribed in this placCi 
fearing they might be lost." The first 39 folios of the volume, as ap- 
pears by the paging, and a list of Contents prefixed by Sir Hen. St. 
George, are now missing, anda recent possessor (Dr. EdmoDdBeanvoir!) 
has noted, " as far as foL 40 is bound np separately," Of these 39 
folios, the first 26 were in Leland's handwriting, and were transcribed 
in the year 1682, whilst the volume belonged to Sir Henry St. George, 
by the procurement of Dr. Robert Plot, and the copy deposited in the 
Bodleian library, marked NE. F. 1 1 > IS, from which Heame printed the 
whole, in the Appendix to his fonrth volume of Leland's ltinerary> 
pp. 108—145, 8vo. Ox. 171 1. It is, however, 
the time this Transcript was made, the fears < 
respecting the loss of the " Notes " of Leland 
the Table of Contents as written on " a loose 
quarto "), must have been verified, for of thee 


BwlltiaD MS. and Sir Henry St. George's own tnnscript at the end of 
the votonie most have been overlooked. Tbey are therefore now printed 
for the first time.

Declaration of Thomas Harper relative to another family of Wick) 
residing at Siralcliffe. 

Thomas Harper of Swaleclifle, in y" countie of Oxon, of 
age of 39 yeares, or thereabout, maketh oath, that since 
sviij'l' duie of I>ecember 1635, 8c before the xiij^ of Septeml 
1637, be, the s^d Thomas Harper, hath often asked Thot 
Wicam of Swalecliffe & his sister Anne Wicam severally & 
severall tymes, whether be or she were any kyn to Kichi 
Wicam Lord of Swaleclifie, or to hb nephew Humfry Wia 
and that both y< said Thomas Wicam and his sister, untill ab 
the xiiji^ of September last 1637, did assure this deponent t 
they never reputed them selves to be any kyn to y* said Rich 
or Humfry, nor ever heard that any of their pdecessors < 
thinke them selves to be kyn to them or to their ancestors ; t 
that about y^ tai]^ of September last this deponent, askii 
againe the said lliomas Wicam y> if he were sure he were i 
any kyn to Humfry Wicam now Lord of Swaleclilfe ; the s 
Thomas Wicam answered in these, or y^ like words, to I 
effect, viz. That he did not know that He was any kyn unto h 
nor ever heard that his pdecessors did ever accompt them sel 
to be y« same bloode v^ y* said Humfi-y's ancestors, till of 1 
that one of y^ Lord Seyes sonnes did tell a kinsman of the s 
Thomas Wicam's at Sheningdon, that it was likely that he, 
sdd Thomas Wicam, & Humfry Wicam were of y^ sune blot 
& kyndred, because their [Idecessors lived soe neere togethei 
were of one & y" same name: And that if the said Thou 
Wicam should deny his kindred to y* said Humfry, the s 
Thomas Wicam's children were likely never to have any bei 
fitt by New Colledg.

In the centre of this inscription is a shield bearing Wickham impaling. Cheeky, 
on a bend three lion's heads erased. At the four comers of the monument are four 
shields. 1. Wickham, charged with a crescent. 3. Cheeky, on a bend three lion's 
heads erased. 3. Ermine, a lion ramp, crowned, a border charged with bezants or 
plates. 4. Wickham impaling 3. I am informed that this plate still remains in 
the middle aile; but that the centre shield and that at the sinister base comer 
are gone. 

^ There are three errors m this pedigree as entered in the College book», 
one of which may be proved from Thorpe's Reg. RoflF. First, the name of 
her father was not Robert, as wiU be seen by the inscription in that work, p. 881 : 
'* Hie jacet Maria Hovenden, filia Wilhelmi Hovenden, Cantuarise nata. uxor 
Johannis Wickham, hujus ecclesiee Rectoris, per quem sex habuit liberos, Marga- 
retam, Richardum, Wilhelmum, Margeriam, Aliciam, et Elizabetham. Obiit 6** 
Juniianno 1587." Secondly she is. stated to have remarried *' Hallet of Canter- 
bury," whereas, as will be seen from her husband's (Wickham s) monumental in- 
scription at Rotherfield, she was his (W's) first wife. Another error has been com- 
mitted by making the daughters, Sarah and Mary, the issue of the first wife ;

(..hristopber, the first Warden, the other a Fellow, of All Souls', were brothers to

Notes to the Pedigree. 

* He was a tenant of lands at Walden. See the Duchy of Lancaster Records 16 
Hen. VIII. Godwin styles him of Enfield, Guillim of Walden. The following is 
an extract from a letter of Mr. Gough to the Rev. E. Robson, dated Jan. 21 y 1799y 
Enfield: ''You judge rightly in supposing I gave Mr. Lysons what information, 
respecting Bp. Wickham, was in the power of one, whose curiosity after so emi- 
nokt a native of this town, led him to every source of intelligence. But Mr. L's 
penetration found out more, and determined that the old mansion by the West aide of 
the North Road in this parish, did not take its name, as commonly ima^^ed, from 
the Bishop of Lincoln, but from the noble family of Lincoln. He ascertained from 
original records that the Bishop's father was tenant of a different house, the manor 
house of Honylands, or Pentriches, of which not an ancient trace remained within 
my memory ; and that which supplied its place was completely taken away about 
five years since. This house the Bishop*s father rented of the Crown in the reign 
of Henry VI I L Sir Giles Capel (whose name the manor now bears) past it to the 
Crown 1547. Queen Elizabeth sold it 1562 ; and through various hands it came 
to Mr. Boddam. The Bishop's grandmother was daughter of John Wrothe, whose 
family had been settled at Enfield from the reign of Rich. II., so that his father 
was probably under-tenant of some of them (see Lysons, vol. ii. pp. 302, 303, and 
329). If John Wickham's will could be found in Doctors* Commons, or in the 
Bishop of London*s Register (and it is worth a search) more of his profession and 
property might be ascertained. The period for this search should be between 
1547 and 1590.'* There is no wiU in the Prerog. Court. 

i> William Parker was 5th son of John Parker of Norton Lees, by Ellen, 
daughter of Roger North. The Wroths were of Enfield in 1374, and John Tayler 
held the manor circa 1526. 

^ The Bishop is stated by Fuller and Wood to have been bom at Enfield, 
although in an old MS. account of this Prelate and his son, sent by Mr. William 
Smith of Queen*8 Coll, Cambridge in I699f to Dr. James, Master of Queen's, 
then at York, at the request of Tobias his grandson, and taken by Mr. Smith from 
the books at King's College, there is a marginal note as follows : " His father lived 
there," viz. at Enfield, ** but this Wm. Wickham was not bom there." This note 
the Provost (Dr. Roderick) said he knew to be in Wood's hand-writing, and that 
the book had been sent to Wood. He was a Fellow of Eton and of King's ; a Pre- 
bendary of Windsor in 1571| and Dean of Lincoln in 1577. In 1584 he was 
consecrated Bishop of Lincoln, and preached at the burial of Mary Queen of 
Scots at Peterborough Aug. 1, 1587. (See Fuller's Church History and Gunton's 
Hist, of Peterborough.) Mr. Gough endeavoured, but in vain, to discover a copy 
of this sermon. He was translated to Winchester, March 25, 1595, died in the 
same year, and was buried at St. Saviour's Southwark, on the 13th June, according 
to an extract from the parish register, made Oct. 8, 1798, by the Rev. E. Robson, 
who compiled a MS. account of this Prelate for Mr. Wickham. This Register 
Book was given to the Church by Thomas Cure in 1570, who, Stowe says, was 
Saddler to Edward VI. and Elizabeth. The monumental inscription, printed in 
Stowe, and erected by Frances Matthew the Bishop's sister-in-law in 1600, is en- 
tirely destroyed. In Cooke's Grants, F. 13, the Arms allowed to the Bishop are 
entered as follows : Coat, Ermine, a border engrailed Gules, charged with eleven 
mullets Or pierced. No Crest. ** William Wickham, Bishope of Lincoloe, the 
son of John Wickham of Walden in Essex, which John was descended of Wickham

man of York. According to C. 40, a daughter of Stephen Oglethorpe of Kelling- 
ton, CO. York, bom about 1620, was married to " Wickham of York. 

^ The records of the Quarter Sessions for the West Riding, show this William 
to have been both of Ulskelf and Wakefield. He was sworn into office as Clerk of 
the Peace for the West Riding at Wetherby Sessions, Jan. 14, 1718, as ** William 
Wickham, Esq. of Ulleskelfe, alias Uskelfe,*' and again at Skipton Sessions July 
14, 1719, as " late of Uskelfe, but now of Wakefield." The will of 1733 describes 
him as of Ulskelf. An old pedigree in the possession of the Rt. Hon. W. Wick- 
ham, copied from E. 8, fol. 14, was done for him in 1718. The descents, with 
the dijBTerent impalements of arms, are brought down to the children of Humphrey 
Wickham of Swacliffe and Martha Ward ; and collaterally to himself and his issue, 
and to Henry Wickham his nephew, the Rector of Guiseley. The Jenkyns descent 
is also continued to Lady Goodricke, but not including the younger children of 
Tobias and Anthonina. A Dorothy, "wife of Lawyer Wickham," was buried in 
the Minster in Feb. 1716, but whether a first wife of this gentleman or not does 
not appear. 

^ Of Queen*s College, Cambridge, took his degree of B.A. in 1712, and of M.A. 
in 1717. 

° In the entry of his burial he is styled ** Captain Henry Wickham," and there 
^s great reason to believe, indeed it appears almost evident, that he was the Captain 
Henry Wickham of the Navy, who was so severely and unjustly punished by Court 
Martial in 1694. A pamphlet printed in 1695 in his defence, is entitled, ** An 
Accoimt of the Loss of their Majesties* ship the Diamond, Commanded by Captain 
Heory Wickham, Sep. 20, 1693 ; captured by two French Ships oflf Cape Clear, 
on the Coast of Ireland." For this he was tried on board the Britannia at Spithead 
April 30, 1604 ; fined 1000/., and to suffer imprisonment for ten years. According 
to Charnock's Biog. Nav. vol. ii. p. 374, he was appointed second Lieutenant of the 
Crown June 1, 1688 ; to the command of the Antelope March 22, 1690 ; and 
Captain of the Diamond, 42 guns, in 1691, and sent to West Indies with Sir 
Francis Wheeler. He was released from imprisonment on the accession of Anne. 
The minutes of the Court Martial, and the substance of the defence, sufficiently 
show that this was a sort of prelude to those Admiralty proceedings which, in 1754, 
sacrificed the gallant Byng to party vengeance. He is described in the administra- 
tion as of St. Michael le Belfry's parish in York. 

P He took his degree of B.A. in 1 720, and of M.A. in 1724. The monumental 
inscription to his first wife is given in Whitaker's Leeds, p. 208. 

« Their son, the Rev. James Scott, D.D. was a celebrated preacher, and held 
the Rectory of Simonbum, co. Northumberland. He also rendered himself con- 
spicuous by the publication of some letters, under the signature of Anti-Sejanus, 
in 1765, in the Public Advertiser. There is a biographical notice of him in 
Gent. Mag. vol. lxxxiv. ii. p. 601. There are, however, two mistakes, first in 
calling the Dean of York John Wickham ; secondly, in naming the Bishop of 
Chichester Barton instead of Barlow, 


eader will no doabt have decided with Glover that the Peti- 
^ate waa by no means proved, and that Wickham was ho called 
node natnB eat, et non a parentibus."

On one of the fly-leaves of a Cartulary of Westminster Abbey, 
MS. Cott. Faust. A. iii. are entered the following curious memoranda 
respecting the expenses of the funeral hearses of several sovereigns 
and persons of rank. 

In Gough*s Sepulchral Monuments^ vol. i. pp. 170*— 173*, will be 
found a full account from the Exchequer records of the expenses of 
making four hearses at the funeral of Anne the Queen of Richard the 
Second^ to be erected in the churches of Westminster (the hearse below 
mentioned), St Paul's cathedral, and the parish churches of St. Mary 
Overy and Wandsworth. King Richard likewise directed by his will 
four hearses at his funeral, two at the principal churches to which his 
body might be carried, a third at St. Paul's, and the fourth at West- 
minster ', or, if he died at Westminster, then four hearses at such places 
as his executors might direct.

edged by the Common Law. 

ODseqnence of this was, that nearly every Chapel in and about

was in the habit of marrying persons, and somedmes of keeping

riages at Chapels^ for banns were scarcely ever published but in Parish 
Churches. Indeed^ so restrictive did the clause in the Act proYCi that 
it was found that marriages could not be solemnized even in St. Paul s 
CathedraT, Westminster Abbey, the Temple Church, &c. &c. Whether 
this was Lord Hardwicke*s intention on framing the Marriage Bill> need 
not now be discussed ; but there seems no good reason for allowing a 
marriage by License to be solemnized in a Church and not in a Cathe- 
dral ; and it seems absurd to require as special a License to be married 
in the Abbey Church of St. Peter's (or rather in Henry the Seventh's 
Chapel) as in a private house. 

The discontinuance of marriages at Chapeby and the pasnng of the 
ownership of the Chapels themselves from one to another, together with 
the lapse of time, and accidental circumstances, have occa^oned the 
loss of many of the registers kept at these places of worship, and it is^ 
intended to ^ve some account of those which are now known to exist, 
with the addition of information obtained from other sources^ which has 
been obtained at very consideralde labour and expense. 

The affidavit made by one of the parties on obtaining the marriage 
License, is called in the Ecclesiastical Courts a ^ Matrimonial Allega- 
tion." The Allegations belonging to the Bishop of London are bound 
up in yearly volumes and deposited in the Muniment Room at St. PauFs^ 
and to these books frequent reference will be made, since they afford 
particulars of the ages of the parties, and frequently some account of 
their parentage. 


This Chapel is situate at the south end of Duke Street, in the Parish 
of St. Margaret's, Westminster. It was founded by a Mr. Higgins and 
by private subscriptions in 1709. It is now the property of Lewi» 
Wolfe, Esq. the lessee of the Crown. 

The only existing register of this Chapel, consists of several sheets 
of foolscap paper, containing twelve entries of marriage. It is in- 
tituled :

This Chapel was built about 1720^ and consecrated in Sept. 1723. 
The public journals of 1722 state it to have been then nearly finished, 
and that the Ministers were the Rev. Dr. Marshall^ Jun. and the Rer. 
Dr. Rogers. The Proprietors in 1737 chose the Rev. Mr. Cradock,

This Chapel was built by Sir George Wheeler prior to the year 1714,5 
and was used by the inhabitants of Spitalfields before their present 
Church, Christ Church, was built. It is situated near to Wheeler Street, 
on the east side of Bishopsgate Street. The Register is a small quarto,, 
neatly bound, in the possession of one of the Trustees of the Chapel. 
It contains at one end entries of 197 baptisms from the 24th of March 
1734 to 1824, and at the other end entries of the following twenty-three 
marriages : 

John White of Stepney and Anne Bates of same, 28 Apl 1720.

2. It is clear that in ^e time of King Henry II. die Arundeli 
bore swallows in their escutcheon, as they do at present. For 
in the Philippeis' we read the foilowing verses de^ribing an 
Arundell encountering William de Ban- : 

Vidit HiinadellL velocior itlite quee dat 
Hoc AgnomeD ei, fert ci^ns in ffigide Bignam, 
Se rapit ngminibna mediis clypeoqne niteDti 
Qaem 8ibi Gnillelmna InvfL prgetenderat nln&, 
Immer^t validam pnetCDtte cnspidis faastam. 

P. 207-e of Camden's Remains, 1637. 

3. It is an unquestionable fact, that the knightly family of 
Arundell flourished in Cornwall long before Messrs. Lysons (in 
their History of that County) suppose them to have settled there. 
This is easily proved by reference to the Episcopal RegLsters of 
Exeter. When the tamily began to present to the Churches of 
St. Columb Major and to St. Mawgan, I cannot discover ; but 
the following extract from the Register (and it is the earliest) of 
Bishop Bronescomb, disproves the assertion of Messrs. Lysons: 

<* In vi^lia Assumptionis Beate Marie, A.D. 1266, ad presen- 
tationem Dni Radulphi de Arundell, ad quern jus Patronatus 
Eccte See Columbe pertinere dignoscebatut, Dns Epus admisit 
Rogerum de Derteford." 

Lanherne, the seat of the Arundell family in Cornwall, was 
held of the Bbhop of Exeter by Military Service. This I learn 
from fol. 103 of Bishop Stapeldon's Renter: 

" Noverint universi per presentes nos Walterum permissione

7. Dr. John Arundell, Bishop of Lichfield & Coventry, was 
translated to Exeter, and after governing this See nearly 1 year 
and 9 months, departed this life 15 March 1503-4. To his 
Register is a " Prologus," written by his Secretary, John Six- 
tinus, highly complimentary to his Lordship : " Cujus generose 
stirpis antiquam nobilitatem excellensdoctrina maximeque virtutes 
adornant : cujus in Deum pietatem quotidianus Dei in suo

8. I have seen a letter dated Greenwich, 13 June 1685, signed 
by Francis (Earl of) Bedford and (Sir) Francis Walsyngham to 
the Mayor of Exeter, thanking him for having detained at ELxeter 
John Arundell of Trevenack, Esq. who had attempted to go 
over the seas with a large sum of money. The money is ad- 
judged to be sequestered to the Exchequer, and his person to 
be detained in safe custody until further orders. On 13th July 
Sir Francis Walsyngham alone signs a letter, directing the 
money to be restored to the Squire, and that he should be dis- 
charged forthwith.

charters respecting the gospatric and other northern 
families, from the newminsitr chartulaey and lord 
Wallace's muniments; communicated by the rev. john 


The first of these documents is Trom a copy of the long-lost New- 
minster Chartolary, which (probably at some law-suit) found its way 
from Naworth Castle into the hands of the late Edward Cook, Esq. «f 
Blakemoor, in North n in berland, Recorder of Berwick-upon-Tweed, and 
an eminent untiqnary, frum whom it passed with other e&ecta to William 
Bum, Esq. of ^outhwick, in the County of Durham, who haa lately 
restored it to the Karl of Carlisle. The other fonr abstracts are from 
original charters in the possession of Lord Wallace at Featherstone 
Castle, in Northumberland.

The possessions conveyed by this deed were probably Blackall and 
other lands in the manor of Botchardley within and without Carlisle -, 
and the history of which^ though treated of in the Denton MS. in the 
possession of Miss Carlisle of Carlisle^ is still very imperfectly told.
