PREFACE. '»b0a7l5 

. ^6887' 

At the conclusion of the first volume of the " Collectanea 
TopoGRAPHicA ET Genealogica," a few remarks may be 
thought requisite on the plan pursued in its compilation. 

Every Local Historian has more or less had to deplore the 
limited means of access to the public and private repositories of 
documents which throw light on the descent of property and 
families ; and although by the exertions of the Record Commis- 
sion, the former evil may in time be removed, yet the latter must 
necessarily continue. It appeared, therefore, to the projectors 
of the " Collectanea," that a work conducted on a moderate scale 
of expense, and chiefly founded on the publication oio?'iginal and 
inedited materials of value to the topographer and genealogist, 
might be favourably received and supported by those interested 
in such pursuits. The only work of a similar nature pre- 
viously attempted, was Shaw's " Topographer," which appeared 
in 4 vols. 1789-1791 ; but the admission of much extraneous 
matter and the want of judgment often displayed in its arrange- 
ment — not to mention the almost total absence of original docu- 
ments — prevent any just comparison being drawn between the 
" Topographer" and the " Collectanea." The subsequent effort 
to revive it, under the title of " Topographical Miscellanies," 1792, proved still more unsuccessful. The " Bibliotheca " 
of the laborious Mr. Nichols and his coadjutors, can much 


less serve as a parallel to the " Collectanea," since the former 
valuable miscellany not only admitted distinct histories of Pa- 
rishes, sufficiently copious to form by themselves a volume, but 
also dissertations on subjects of an antiquarian, historical, or bio- 
graphical character, which could not properly fall within the 
scope of our publication. 

In regard to the materials of which the " Collectanea " is com- 
posed, it is only necessary to observe, that those whose opinion is 
really of weight — to whom the inspection of a document literatim 
is more satisfactory than a brief and possibly erroneous abstract 
or translation — will scarcely be inclined to find fault with us 
for presenting them with the originals. It must also be re- 
membered, that the " Collectanea" is intended to be, not a mere 
temporary vehicle of amusement, but a permanent storehouse of 
authentic information, to which reference may hereafter confi- 
dently be made. Rymer's Fcedera, or any other collection of 
documents, may just as well be objected to, since the real fault 
(if any) rests with the learning of our ancestors, who preferred 
recording their transactions relative to property and pedigree in 
a dead language. 

It would be difficult, if not impossible, to please all tastes ; for 
what to one might seem useless another would esteem of the 
hio-hest value. But on looking at the materials from which our 
first volume is composed, and without wishing to challenge un- 
due commendation, it will, we hope, be admitted, that much has 
been for the first time made available to the Local Historian and 
Genealogist; that much has been done to correct and improve 
die three great works of Dugdale, Tanner, and Dodsworth ; and 
that, on the whole, the "Collectanea" has fulfilled the expec- 
tations held out in our Prospectus.

It has been a principal object with the Editors, that the volume 
should be furnished with complete Indexes, which form so im- 
portant a feature of any book intended for reference. It was by 
means of its Index of Names that the Monasticon became of 
essential service to Dugdale when compiling the materials of his 
Baronage; and it is only by the aid of their Indexes that the 
multifarious but invaluable collections of Leland and Hearne, 
have been rendered very extensively available to succeeding an- 

In the succeeding volume of the present Work (and we would 
add volumes^ but that must depend on the continuance of a sub- 
scription list, not yet adequate to our expenses), the same zeal 
will be manifested to enrich our publication from the inedited 
stores of the British Museum and Bodleian Library, as well as 
from the valuable collections of individuals ; and when we review 
the distinguished names of those who have already favoured our 
pages with their Communications, and on whose future co-opera- 
tion we have reason confidently to rely, a strong guarantee is held 
out to our Subscribers for the increasing stability and sterling 
value of the " Collectanea."

YEARS 1647 AND 1651. 

So early as the month of September 1642^ the memorable Long Par- 
liament had appointed a Committee for the Sequestration of the lands 
of all Bishops, Deans, and Chapters, (Whitl. Mem. p. G3,) and subse- 
quently proceeded to utterly abolish the name and title of Archbishops 
and Bishops by an ordinance bearing date 9 Oct. 1646, by which they 
vested all their honors, manors, lordships, &c. and all their charters, 
deeds, books, writings, &c. in the hands of Trustees, " for the payment 
of the just and necessary debts of the kingdom." (Scobell, p. 99, pt. i.) 
Pursuant to which, on 16 Nov. 1646, an ordinance was issued for the 
sale of all the Bishops' lands and estates for the service of the Common- 
wealth, (lb. p. 101.) By the same authority all purchasers were to 
have letters patents under the Great Seal of England for these grants, 
and to hold of the King in fealty only, according to the tenure of the 
manor of East Greenwich. The Attorney-general vvas authorised to 
prepare a Bill for each grant or sale, and the Lord Chancellor em- 
powered to pass it ; whilst the titles of the purchasers were to be de- 
fended at the pubhc charge. (lb. p. 133.) In addition to these secu- 
rities, and in order to afford greater encouragement to their chapmen 
(as Walker calls them), the estates were sold at an appraisement barely 
equivalent to the materials of the mansion-houses and timber on the 
grounds, so that, as Dr. Bate truly remarks, (Elench. Mot. p. 52, 
edit. 1676.), " Episcoporura latifundia vili pretio sub hasta posuerint, 
unde sectores innumeri confluxerunt, qui materia ruderibusque palatio- 
rum et silvis excisis pretium emptionis solventes, praedia ampla et In- 
tegra maneria gratis fere adipiscuntur." It was, moreover, ordered, 
that all surveys, particulars, contracts, &c. of the lands so sequestrated, 
should be registered by a public officer, and catalogues drawn up of all 
evidences and writings touching the titles of the same (Scob. p. II !•) i 
and this register ought still to exist in some one of the public Record 
Offices, and would be at the present day a singularly curious document. 
The same steps, in regard to the lands of Deans and Chapters, were taken 


in April, 1649, in referring to which, and to the previous act. Walker 
only says, " Having no information relating to the proceedings on that 
act, I can only assure the reader, that the lands, &c. were, in fact, sold, 
or converted by the Commissioners to their own private uses 5 but can 
give him no particulars relating to these matters." (p. 14 ) 

The account now first printed, of the sale of the Episcopal lands, with 
the names of the purchasers, and prices, will sufficiently show to what 
an extent the proceedings in question were carried. It is transcribed 
from a MS. nearly or quite coeval, recently presented to the British 
Museum by William Bray, Esq. F.S.A. (MSS. Add. 9049) A recent 
copy of it exists among the Rawlinson MSS. in the Bodleian library, 
B. 230, from which a list of the estates belonging to the Sees of Dur- 
ham and Winchester was inserted in the new edition of the Monasticon, 
vol. i.pp. 203, 233. 

As a necessary prelude to the Restoration, the two acts of Sequestra- 
tion were repealed in March, 1659-16(30 3 and, on the King's return, 
the subject of the restoration of these lauds to the rightful owners, and 
the compensation to be made to the purchasers, became a subject of 
frequent deliberation in Parliament, and produced several pamphlets on 
the side of the latter party. Among which may be noticed. An 
Apology for purchases of lands late of Bishops, Deans, and Chapters. 
(Aug. 1660.) Proposals on behalf of the Purchasers, &c. (Sept. 1660), 
and Petition of the Purchasers to the House of Commons (Oct. 1660.) 

The King had partly pledged himself to some equitable accommoda- 
tion, and communicated his wishes on the subject to the Parliament in 
September, 1660 ; and, on the 7th of October following, a Commission 
was especially appointed " to inquire into the pretended sales and pur- 
chases of Crown and Church Lands/' (Kennet's Regist. p. 273.) These 
Commissioners sate in the Star Chamber, and their proceedings are 
stated to have given the parties concerned great satisfaction. Bishop 
Kennet repeatedly refers to a MS. containing the orders of the Com- 
missioners, but chiefly in regard to lands belonging to the Dean and 
Chapter of Peterborough. (Cf. Reg. pp. 376, 388-9, 475, 579, 605, 
628, 631.) He does not state, however, where this MS. was deposited, 
nor does it seem to form a part of his own collections, now existing in 
the British Museum among the Lansdowne MSS. If hereafter found, 
it will, no doubt, afford some useful information in illustration of the 
document here printed. 

The only liberty taken with the IMS. is to restore in some cases a 
stricter chronological order than there observed, and occasionally to 
abbreviate the Christian names of persons.

This Manuscript, preserved in the library of Sir Thomas Phillipps, 
Bart, at Middle Hill, in Worcestershire, contains a history of the Abbats 
of Meaux or Melsa, intermixed with a narrative of the public transactions 
of the kingdom. It is a folio, written on paper about the end of the 
fourteenth century, and is probably the same as that mentioned by Dug- 
dale, in his list of Cartularies, then belonging to Sir William Aldford. 

Caput 9. 

De Grangid nostra de Hayholm, et Genealogid Feoffatoris nostri. 
[scil. lioherti de Scurres.~\ 

Robertus quoque de Scurres dedit nobis cum se ipso unam 
carucatam terras, viz. totuni suum Holm quod est inter Leven 
et Brysthyll, cum suis pertinentiis, ab omni terreno servicio libe- 
ram et solutam, ubi nunc constructum est manerium nostrum 
quod Hayholm nuncupatur. Ipse autem Robertus apud nos 
factus novicius, secundus fuit qui inter nos in noviciatu est de- 
functus. Cujus donacionem Willielmus frater et heres suus 
nobis confirmabat ; nosque quiete damans de forinseco servicio 
Regis et Comitis quod sibi et heredibus suis pro dicta terra, facere 
debebamus, ut omnino essemus attendentes erga Comitem et 
heredes suos de predict© forinseco servicio imperpetuum ; ita 
quod de se et heredibus suis de omnibus secularibus serviciis qui- 
buscunque quieti in perpetuum maneremus. Quod servicium 
postea Hawisia, filia et heres prescripti Willielmi Groos, Comi- 
tis Albemarliae, fundatoris nostri, ac Baldwinus de Betoyn, vir 
suus, cum omnibus serviciis ceterarum terrarum quas de eorum 
dominio tenebamus in perpetuam elemosinam nobis relaxabant. 

Et quia prefatus Wilhelmus de Scurres sine herede de se pro- 
create decedebat, hereditas ad MatiJdem sororem ipsorum Ro- 
berti et Willielmi est jure hereditario devoluta. Quie Malildis, 
et Turgisius de Bray maritus suus, ipsam elemosinam nobis con- 


firmaverunt, et ut ipsi de omni servicio quod pertinet ad war- 
dam Castri de Skypse nos acquietarent, fideliter promiserunt. 
Ad quos etiam Robertum, Willielmum, et Matildem dominium 
Villae de Ryston pertinebat. Et quia ipsa Matildis sine herede 
corporis sui decedebat, dominium de Reston descendebat ad 
Walterum de Scurres, filium Ricardi de Scurres, patrui sui. 
Qui et ipse Walterus de Scurres, et Dominus Robertus de Scur- 
res, Miles, filius suus, eandem terram de Hayholm nobis iterum 
in perpetuam elemosinam confirmabant. Quorum quidem gene- 
alogia in scriptis sic legitur exarata. Asketillus de Scurres fuit 
dominus de Reston, qui duos filios genuerat, Alanum videlicet et 
Ricardum. Alanus autem frater senior genuit prescriptum Ro- 
bertum, feofFatorem nostrum, et Willielmum, fratrem suum, ac 
Matildem, sororem eorundem. Ricardus autem frater junior 
genuit Walterum. Et quia prefati Robertus, Willielmus, et Ma- 
tildis, sineheredibusde se procreatis decesserunt, hereditas eorum 
ad dictum Walterum, filium Ricardi, patrui sui, descendebat. At 
ipse Walterus genuit Dominum Robertum de Scurres, Militem, 
qui dedit Domino Roberto de Hyldeyhard, seniori, quicquid ha- 
buit in villa de Reston. Qui quidem Robertus de Hyldeyhard 
emit terras in Reston, quas Mathaeus de Rowton de nobis tenebat 
per servicium militare : de quibus terris, tempore Domini Alex- 
andri, Abbatis quarti, postea referetur. Ipse autem Robertus de 
H. genuit alium Robertum, qui nobis de valore maritagii sui pro 
dictis terris in Reston satisfaciebat, ut iterum postea referetur. 
Ipse autem Robertus junior genuit Thomam. Cujus Thomge 
terras de feodo nostro in Reston, dum infra aetatem extiterat, 
usque ad ejus legitimam atatem, ad firmam pro xxxvis. annuis 
dimittebamus. Ipse autem Thomas genuit duas filias, Kateri- 
nam, viz. et Ceciliam, ad quam Katerinam Reston pertinebat. 
De qua Dominus Petrus de Nuthyll, Miles, ipsam secundam 
suam ducens uxorem, Petrum filium suum secundum, ipsius 
Katherinae heredem, procreavit. At ipse Petrus de Nuthyll, 
junior, ipsum Reston ex sorte hereditatis matris suk retinet in 

Cap. 10. 

De molendino super Hull in Cotyngham, et aliis tenementis ibidem, 
et Genealogia feoffatoris nostri [sc. lloherii de Stutevyll']. 

Robertus etiam de Stutevyll, quondam Dominus de Cotyngham, 
dedit eidem Monasterio nostro sedem unius molendini super ripani 


de Hull, in territorio de Cotyngham, cum aquis quae descendunt 
de Cotyngham in Hull, et quoddam croftum duarum acrarum et 
iiij perticarum, et unam piscariam ibidem ; castellum etiam 
ligneum unde edificatas sunt pistrinum, stabulum, et alias Monas- 
terii officince. Dedit etiam Monasterio xxiiii fasces virgarum de 
boscis de Cotyngham, ad reficiendas carectas nostras in Hol- 
dernesse, et duas carectatas virgarum de parco de Kyrkeby, in 
Moresed, ad reficiendas carectas nostras in Walda. Inceperamus 
quidem tunc tres grangias in Walda, Blanchemarle, Etton, et 
Wharrom ; de quibus infra breve in suis locis referetur. Qui 
etiam Robertus, Miles, genuit Willielmum, Nicholaum, Eusta- 
chium, et Robertum. Willielmus et Eustachius et Robertus sine 
liberis mortui sunt. Willielmus vero molendinum, quod pater 
suus prius nobis contulit, nobis vi sustulit, sicut in sequentibus, 
tempore Domini Thomae Abbatis, referetur. Ipse tamen "Wil- 
lielmus apud nos sepelitur. Nicholaus autem de novo quasi con- 
tulit nobis easdem duas acras et quatuor perticatas terrse pre- 
scriptEej et servicia dimidii feodi unius militis apud Skyrefi et 
Crauncewyk, ac obiens duos filios post se reliquit, Robertum, viz. 
et Nicholaum. Robertus genuit Eustachium, et apud nos tumu- 
latur. Eustachius autem dedit nobis unum clausum apud Hul- 
bank, continens x acras prati. Et quia dictus Eustachius sine 
prole obiit, ad Nicholaum, patruum suum, hereditas est devoluta. 
Nicholaus autem predictus contulit nobis unum clausum juxta 
predictas duas acras, et iiii perticas, apud Newland, et etiam pas- 
turam xxiii vaccis et i tauro in communi pastura de Cotyngham. 
Qui Nicholaus genuit Johannam, de qua Dominus Hugo de 
Wake genuit Baldewinum de Wake, qui genuit Johannem, qui 
genuit Thomam, Johannem, et Margaretam. Thomas vero et 
Johannes sine prole obierunt, et Margaretam desponsavit Ed- 
mundus. Comes Canciae, filius Regis Edwardi primi, de qua 
genuit Robertum, Thomam, » et Johannam. 

Defuncto Roberto, et Thoma hereditatem assecuto, et sine 
prole obeunte, Johannae, sorori sua?, hereditatis sortem dereliquit. 
Quam quidam Miles strenuus Dominus Thomas de Holand 
desponsavit, et ex ea heredem Dominum Thomam de Holand, 
Comitem Canciae, qui nunc est, generavit, 

Berardus itaque de Cotyngham novem piscarias in Hull eidem 
Monasterio conferebat. Dabantur etiam nobis tunc duo alia 
crofta super ripam de Hull, in eodem territorio, sed tamen qui 
• An error ; Edmuud and John, who were botli Earls of Kent. — Edit. 


faerunt feoffatores nostri de ipsis croftis minime reperitur. Ipsa 
tamen crofta, tempore Domini Thomas, Abbatis tertii, fuerunt 
alienata, sicut postea referetur. Quidam etiam vir nobilis Helias 
de Fannecourt nomine, cujus pater, miles egregius nomine Gi- 
rardus, monachus in dicto monasterio nostro efFectus fuei'at, dedit 
eisdem Monachis, eo tempore, unam bovatam terrae in Bruneby, 
et quinque acras prati cum una mansura ibidem. Quae, tempore 
Hugonis, Abbatis quinti, postea fuerunt alienata. 


In the Cartulary of the Abbey of Meaux, preserved in the Cotton 
collection, Vi tell. C. VI. written in the years 1396-7, of which a brief 
abstract is given by the editor of the New Monasticon, vol. v. p. 389, 
we find, at fob 50, a list of the persons who gave lands to the Abbey on 
condition of being buried there. As this list is, in many respects, of 
interest, a copy of it is annexed.

The very short account (comprised in ten lines) of the Premonstraten- 
sian Abbey of Tichfield, in Hampshire, given by the editors of the new 
Monasticon, vol. vi. p. 93 1, will, perhaps, render some occasional illus- 
trations of its history, drawn from the original monastic Registers, 
acceptable to the Topographer. A description of these Registers (now 
in the possession of the Duke of Portland) will hereafter be submitted. 
At present, a Hst of the Abbats of this monastery, extracted from the 
" Rememoratorium," compiled in the reign of Richard II. is offered to 
the " Collectanea,"

Sir, Your proposal of iutroducing so much as you can obtain of any 
respectable family that are deceased, seems to be a plan that may be of 
considerable use to some who may have been remotely connected with 
those famiUes. I therefore send you the inclosed account of a very 
respectable family, now extinct in the male line, in their late situation 
of Compton, near Guildford, in Surrey. The earliest knowledge that I 
have of them does not begin before the time of James the First, but from 
that time I believe it to be perfectly complete. 

W. Bray. 

The Family of Fulham, of Compton. 

In 1637, Edward Fulham, D. D. purchased the manor of 
Compton Eastbury, in the parish of Compton,^ with a very good 
mansion adjoining to the church-yard, and looking over ..... 
acres to the south or south-west. 

The Fulliam family formed matrimonial connections with very 
respectable families, and have been chiefly devoted to the Church 
of England, in which they have possessed many livings and other 
preferments ; but one of tliem was Recorder of Guildford in 
1703, and M. P. for Haslemere in 1705 and 1707, and which 
was under the patronage of the one of the Molyneux family, who 
had married the heiress of the More family, of Loseley. 

The estate at Compton descended to the late Rev. Edward 
Fulham, who died 1st of June 1832. 

He had the living of St. Nicholas' parish, Guildford, on the 
presentation of Dr. Greene, as Dean of Salisbury, who was his 
grand-uncle; but Mr. Fulham resided in the parish of Compton, 
on his estate, in the ornamenting and improving of which he 
took great delight, and had made it a much admired situation. 
The house is a handsome one, adjoining the churchyard.

appointed Rector of West lldesley, Berks, and Rector of Hampton Poyle, Ox., and 
Vicar of Bray in Berks, and was one of the Prebendaries of Winchester. In 1667 he 
purchased the manor of Compton Eastbury ; but tlie manor of Compton Westbuiy, and 
the leet of the whole of the parish of Compton, are part of the Loseley estate, belonging 
to James More Molyneux, Esq. — See Manning and Bray's History of Surrey, vol. ii. p. .5. 
Dr. Edward Fulham had also two daughters : Margaret, who married Henry Bickley, 
June 14, 1676 ; and Katharine, mar. 1. Robert Waith, Esq. 2. Edw. Jones, D.D. 

"^ Rector of West lldesley, Prebendary of Wellington in the Church of Lichfield, 
1673. — See Manning and Bray's History of Surrey, vol. ii, p. 5. 

■^ Instituted Rector of Compton in 1684 ; Prebendary of Winchester in 16.92, and Rec- 
tor of St. Mary, Southampton; 1700 Archdeacon of Winchester. He was Fellow of Mag- 
dalene College, Oxford ; and was one of those who stoutly resisted the intention of King 



James the Second to introduce a Roman Catholic as head of that College : but I suppose 
was expelled, and in the Revolution, when William the Third became King, it is pro- 
bable tliat he iiad a stall given him in that Cathedral as a recompense for what he had 
lost at the College. 

' This lady was one of the three daughters of George Evelyn, the son and heir-appa- 
rent of George Evelyn, Esq. of Wotton, the latter being the elder brother of the so 
much celebrated John Evelyn, the publication of whose Memoirs from his own MSS, 
has been so well received by the public. George Evelyn, her father, died in his father's 
lifetime, leaviijg by his wife three daughters. The male branch being likely to fail, 
leaving only daughters, George Evelyn the father made a new settlement of the 
Wotton estate in favour of a younger brother, the celebrated John Evelyn, subject to 
the payment of about 5000Z. to each of these three daughters, and which money was 
paid on John Evelyn coming into possession of the Wotton estate under the new limi- 
tation. — See Evelyn's Memoirs, vol. ii. p. 65, 4to. edit. 

Mrs. Fiilhani was buried in Winchester Cathedral, where there is a tablet erected to 
her memory, the copy of an inscription on which is printed in Gale's History of that 
Cathedral, 1715, p. 48.

^ Appointed Recorder of Guildford 4th Oct. 1703, was MP. for Haslemere in 1705 
an.l 1707; this was probably owing to his friendship with the Molyneux family, who 
were at that time Patrons of this Borough. 

' Married 1.9th May 1687. 

^ Instituted Rector of Compton 1722 and of Merrow in 1736, to the latter of which 
he was presented by Thomas Lurd Onslow the patron ; in 1796 he was appointed Pre- 
bendary of Heathlield in the Cathedral of Chichester, and Archdeacon of Landaflf ; in 
1750 one of the Canons of Windsor, having been Chaplain to Arthur Onslow, Esq. 
Speaker of the House of Commons ; he was Rector of Compton 55 years. 

I A medical gentleman of Guildford, who by the interest of the Onslow family ob- 
tained a Land-waiter's place in the Custom-house, London.

We write no more of mariages by cause the fees of thoffice of

[Fol. 89.] Pedigree of Broke. 

Roger Broke, of Leighton, maried the daughter of Bokeley of 
Weston Woods, in Cheshire. The said Roger had issue, bi the 
daughter of Bukeley, Thomas Broke of Leighton. Thomas 
Broke, of Leighton, maried the daughter of Thomas Dawkinson, 
Eschetour of Cheshire, and Chamberleyne of North Walis, and 
Constable of the Castell of Carnarvan, l)i whos daughter the seid 
Thomas had issue, John Broke of Leighton, which John maried 
the daughter of Parker of Copnall (which Parker married the 
daughter of Copnall, sumtyme Lord of Copnall), of whom he 
had issue Thomas Broke that now is, which Thomas maried the 
daughter of Sterkey of Olton, and had issue Richard Broke, 
which Richard Broke is now one of the religion of Seynt John's 

The mother of the wift" of the seid Thomas was daughter of 
Phillipe Egerton of Edgerton. The mother of Hugh Sterkley 
fsic) of Olton, was suster to Sir John Nedeham, which was 
Justice of Chester. Nedeham that now is, heire unto the seid 

John SterkeVj grauudfalhcr to the wil!" of Thomas Broke his 


mother, was sister unto Sir John Delves, that wassleyne at Blowre 
heath. Phelip Egerton, that was father to the wiff of Hugh 
Sterkeley (sic) of Ohon, maried the daughter of Wilham Ma- 
neringe of Yghtfekl, which was grandfather to John Maneringe, 
and father to Richard Manering that now is. 

This pedigree having been written in the reign of Henry VIII. and 
varying in some degree from that in Ormerod's " History of Cheshire," 
it has been thought desirable to print it, because the person who wrote 
it lived at the same period as the Thomas Broke who married Starkey. 




This volume contains 430 folio leaves of original Cartulary, with eight 
leaves of miscellaneous Charters at the beginning, and six leaves added 
later at the end. 

It is written in a fine broad character, about the latter end of the 
13th century, between 12/8 and 1292. The references in Dugdale to 
Sir Richard Leveson's copy correspond so exactly with this, that there 
can be little doubt of its being the identical book. 

On the last cover are stamped the initials H. L. which are supposed 
to be those of Sir Henry Leigh or Leighton, of Shropshire. 

On the page previous to the first Charter is the following note and 
pedigree, well written in the beginning of Elizabeth's reign, about 1562. 

Guillaume seigneur de Bellesme et de Alen^on en Normendie, 
fils de Yvon, avoit de Mathild sa feme quatre fils, nommes Guerin

The Pedigree is carried down to George Eyrl of Shrewsbury 1562, 
with a branch showing the descent of Corbet from Talbot ; but, as it 
seems to want sufficient authority, we omit it. 

The first Charter deserves to be transcribed at length, since it is more 
descriptive of Earl Roger's conduct at the moment when he designed the 
foundation of the monastery, than that printed in the Monasticon. 

1. Testimonium Walteri Constahulatoris, et Roherti Episcopi 
Cestrice, qualiter Damns (S. FetriJ fuit fundata. 

Venerabilis Comes Rogerius, cum sepius volveret in animo 
quatinus banc ecclesiam coustrueret in honore Sanctorum Apos- 
tolorum Petri et Pauli, vocans ad se Siwardum, (qui Grossus di- 
cebatur, et aliquando hujus loci extiterat dominus,) suum ei indi- 
cavit desiderium, dicens : " Si bono animo banc ei elemosinam 
concederet perficiendam, daret ei quandam villam quaB Langafeld 
vocabatur." Quo ille audito, ut erat vir bonus, libenter annuit, 
et eandem villam accipiens a Comite statim S^^ Petro et jNIona- 
chis ejus hilar! animo condonavit, in presentia scilicet Comitis et 
Raronum ejus: hoc solum lanien retiiiuit, ut, quoad ipse viveret, 
a monachis earn habere posset. Quod gratantur {sic) concessum 
est. Eo aulem postea defuncto, et decenter in hoc monasterio 
sepulto, filius ejus Aldredus, nolens patris sequi vestigia, predic- 
tum villam sibi retinuit, et vi et poteslate Ricardi de Belmesio 


(qui tunc Dapifer luijus Comitatus erat, et postea Londoniae 
Episcopus lactus est,) per aliquod tempus possedit, vastans omnia 
quai Pater illius in ea reliquerat. Ha3C videns pise memoriae 
Fulcheredus Abbas, per amorem potius quam per placitum, vil- 
1am predictam reducere studuit. Consilio igitur amicorum et 
predict! Ricardi dedit supradicto Aldredo quindecim libras, et 
fratribus ejus donaria, ut jam dictam villam sine retractione sibi 
redderent. Quo concesso et coram multis testibus confirmato, 
recepit Ecclesia quod injuste amiserat. Hoc vero sciendum, 
quod tunc temporis tantas erat villa ilia paupertatis, quod nee ex- 
traneis tanti vendi posset. Hujus rei testes extiterunt predictus 
Ricardus, Kogerus Corbeth et Robertus frater ejus, Hamo Pe- 
verel, et omnis Comitatus. Supradictus Rogerius Comes con- 
stituens banc ecclesiam nostram dedit S™ Petro et Monachis ejus 
ecclesiam S^i Gregorii cum omnibus quae ad eam pertinebant, ut 
in carta Regis scriptum est, eo scilicet tenore, ut dum canonici 
qui in ea prebendas habebant morte deficerent, prebendae in do- 
minum Monachorum devenirent. Ricardus vero Capellanus de 
Meilnil Hermer, qui unam prebendam habebat in eadem eccle- 
sia, dum moreretur a Monachis nostris factus est Monachus, et 
in nostra ecclesia sepultus. Filius autem illius, Hubertus nomine, 
laicus, sperans prebendam patris in hereditatem posse sibi ad- 
quirere, multis modis monachos inde fatigavit. Sed percipiente 
piissimo Rege Henrico, ut Ricardus Londoniensis Episcopus inde 
rectum teneret, quia idem Hubertus juste eandem non potuit ha- 
bere prebendam, post multa placita sine omni calumnia dere- 
liquit. Inde testes fuerunt praedictus gloriosus Rex, Ricardus 
Episcopus, Alanus filius Flaald, Hamo Peverel, Rogerus Cor- 
beth et Robertus frater ejus, Herbertus filius Helgoti, cum multis 
aliis probis et honestis hoaiinibus. 

Kainerius de Tangelanda =* habuit quandam terrulam de hec 
Ecclesia nomine Fertecotam, quam sibi Abbas Fulcheredus tali 
pacto commiserat, ut eo defuncto sine aliqua retractatione statim 
in dominium ecclesiae rediret. Filius vero ejus, Willielmus no- 
mine, eam retinere cupiens, similiter nos plurimum fatigavit, et 
nuilta placita coadunavit. Tandem vero Fulcheredus Abbas tes- 
timoniis suis probans priorem conventionem, quod injuste pre- 
dictus WiUielnuis ecclesiae volebat auferre, justo judicio vindi- 
cavit. Hujus rei testes sunt Ricardus Episcopus, et omnes 

' Qy. whether tliis is a name derived from the Saxun " Tainland " ? P. 


Rainaldus filius Elieth reddidit huic Ecclesias et nobis unam 
hidam, quam pater ejus aliquando habuerat ad firmam ex hac 
ecclesia. Et quia hoc spontanea voluntate fecit, sine omni re- 
tractatione vel calumnia sui aut alicujus heredis illius, dedit illi 
Godefridus Abbas x//. et xs. coram multis testibus, Teoderico 
scilicet domino illius qui banc conventionem inter nos et ilium 
composuit, Hamone Peverel et Warino dapifero ejus; Williel- 
mo milite predicti Theodorici, Willielmo Coco, Meriet et We- 
ret famulis Abbatis, cum multis aliis. 

Turstinus Buich habuit quandam terram juxta Savernam in 
confinio Bruge de hac ecclesia ad quendam terminum, set, eo 
mortuo, Rainaldus filius ejus voluit earn retinere per vim in here- 
ditate. Qui post patrem non diu superstes existens, in infirmi- 
tate qua defunctus est, penituit, monachilem habitum a monachis 
nostris suscepit, terram reddidit, et seipsum in nostro monasterio 
ad sepeliendum dedit. His interfuit avunculus ejus Odo, Ri- 
cardus frater ejus, Ulgerius, et alii plures. 

Herbertus filius Helgoti, nolens postse aliquam calumniam fieri 
de his quae Pater ejus vel ipse huic ecclesiae contulerant, licet hec 
in carta Regis firmasset, voluit tamen ut filii ejus propria sua con- 
cessione eadem confirmassent. Misit igitur eos cum pia matre 
ad banc ecclesiam, Eutropium scilicet, qui heres post patrem fu-

In the sixth volume of the Monasticon, p. 540, new edit, is an interest- 
ing account of this reUgious house, which was founded by Henry V. in 
1414, and was the only one in Great Britain which professed the modi- 
fied Order of St. Austin, called the Order of St. Saviour and St. Bridget. 
The Rule of the Order is not given by Dugdale, probably because he 
had never met with it, and the deficiency is not suppUed by his editors. 
But among the Add. MSS. in the British Museum, No. 5208, is a 
volume formerly belonging to this monastery, and neatly written on 
parchment, soon after the period of its foundation. It contains : 

1. Regula Sancti Salvatoris, in 24 capp. as adapted to the nuns aud 
brethren of the Order. 

2. Regule bead Augustini Episcopi, secundum exposicionem N. Tryvet. 

3. Exposicio regule Sancti Augustini, per Hugonem de Sancto Victore. 

4. Exposicio regule beati Augustini secundum fratrem Nicholaum 

5. Dialog us inter Kacionem et Animam. 

It is not unreasonable to suppose, that this Aolume was expressly 
compiled for the use of the monastery by Nicholas Trevet, who, in all 
probability, was either father confessor, or one of the professed brothers. 
At the close of the manuscript is written a memorandum respecting the 
anniversaries to be celebrated in the monastery, by which we learn that 
Henry Lord Fitzhugh was the person who first caused the order to be 
brought into England, and endowed the foundation with twenty pounds 
a-year. This nobleman is not mentioned in the king's charter, and were 
it not for this memorandum (a copy of which is annexed) we should be 
ignorant of the part he had taken in the establishment of the Brigittines.

There is a much fuller Rule in English of this monastery preserved 
among the Arundel MSS. in the British Museum, No. 146, but unfor- 
tunately imperfect at the beginning and end.^l It contains the most 
minute directions concerning penance for different grades of offence, the 
duties of each person holding office, the mode of living, performing ser- 
vice, clothing, &c. An extract or two will show the nature of this rule. 
In cap. 13, the officers of the monastery are thus enumerated : 

A pryores, the serches, the chauntres and sub-chauntresses, 
the sexteyne and undersexteyn, the treseres and undertreseres, 

" Istud oflncium tecetur modn, non solum pro dicto Domino Henrico F. sed pro

at the end of which is added a Table of Signs used during the hours of silence by the

the frutes theof, the keper of the butry and of the freytour, the 
keper of the whele, the keper of the grates, the keper of the reve- 
lacion gate, the keper of the cl oyster and dortour dores. 

The fifty-third chapter is entitled, " Of the observaunces in the dor- 
tour," and contains the rule to be observed in the sleeping apartment of 
the nuns : 

In the dortour, none schal beholde other, nor make sygne 
to other, w^oute a resonable cause, but alle schal there kepe hyghe 
silence. There also none shal enclyne to other, thof it be the 
abbes that passethe by them, but all schal go forthe mekly withe 
ther veyles down over ther eyn. There none schal julte up on 
other wylfully, nor spyt up on the stayres, goyng up or down, 
nor in none other place reprevably, but yf they trede it oute 
forthewythe. Nor any schal make any noyse there of unreste, 
aboute makyng of ther beddes, or schakyng of clothes, or remov- 
ynge of strawe, or of any other thynge, from curfewe belle into 
ther pryme, neyther from mete into it be thre of the clokke 
after none. And therfor to suche as gretly rowte [snore] or 
make any unrestful noyse in ther sleppe, or at the leste, to suche 
as may not suffer such unquyetnes, schal be purveyd a nother 
place, wher they may slepe w^oute unrestyng of other. Ther 
beddes schal be made of hordes faste nayled togyder, and stuffed 
with strawe, and they schal have as many clothes up on them as 
nede requyrethe, after the descrecion of the sovereyne, whiche 
owethe to se that none have more than nedethe nor lasse, and 
that two lye not togyder in oo bedde. Ther lyenge schal be in 
tlier stamens gyrde aboute hem withe a lyste, and in ther hosen, 
and up on ther hedes they may have a nyght kerchyf and a nyght 
cappe. If any have desire to lyghe in her cowle, none schal pre- 
sume thys, withe oute special licence of the abbes. — In ther beddes 
they schal sytte and 3yve thankynges to God withe some special 
but no longe prayers or they slepe. And after thys, they schal 
blysse themself withe In nomme patris, and slepe withe sylence 
in pece. 

The seventh chapter is " Of the Decle, how they shal be buri/ed," and 
contains same curious particulars. 

When any suster is dede, the dede body schal be leyde bare, 
al possible honcste saved and keptc, up on a bare borde ordeyned 



thertbr, covered witlie lede yf nede be. And there sche schal be 
wasche withe warme water, by them that have the cure of the 
fermery, and by other sad [grave'] persones, suche as the sove- 
reyne wyl assygne ther to, whiche done, they schal clothe the 
body withe stamen, cowle, and mantel, wymple, veyle, and 
crowne, withe oute rewle cote, but withe hosen and schone 
tanned, and withe a gyrdel, whiche al schal be of the vileste 
gere, and in al these, excepte mantel, sche shal be buryed. After 
th* the body is thus arayed, it schal be leyed up on the bere, 
and covered withe a cheste, made in maner of a wyde latyce, 
that the body may be seen, and so it schal be brcughte in to 
the sustres quyer, chapter, cloyster, or in to some other more 
conveniente place. And the body schal never be w^oute two 
sustres at leste, prayeng for the sowle, saynge ther psauter, or 
dirige, or any other prayers, tyl it be had to chirch, nor it schal 
be lefte alone at any tyme, tyl it be buryed. What tyme the 
body schal be had to the chirche or to sepulture, that is reserved 
to the discrecion of the confessour and hys brethren, counsel had 
of the abbes in thys party, as for the sustres. Before that the 
coorse be buryed schal be seyd a masse of requiem for the soule, 
but yf it 1)6 so corrupte, that it may not so longe be kepte above 
erthe, witlie oute infeccion of other. 




Robert de Todenei, founder of the Priory of Belvoir, and who among 
other manors in Lincolnshire held Talintune in capita, died in 1088, 
leaving issue several children. 

William, the eldest son, bore, according to Dugdale,^ the surname of 
Albini, with the addition of Brko to distinguish him from \^^illiam de 
Albini, the King's chief butler, called from his office P'mcerna. This 
William is said, by Maud daughter of Simon St. Liz, Earl of Huntingdon, 
to be the father of William de Albini, also surnamed Brito, who in the 
12th Henry II. certified that he held thirty-eight knight's fees. 

'^ liaronage, vol. i. p. 111. 



Notwitlistanding the autlioritics quoted by Dugdalc, pcrliaps further 
proof may be wanting that the last-named William was grandson and 
heir-male of Robert de Todenei, and that Maud de St. Liz was his mo- 
ther 3 •> but, that William de Albini, who died in the 14 Henry II. bore 
the surname of Brito, and that he was father by Cicely his wife, of a son 
William, v^ ill aj)pcar in the following original charter l)clotiging to John 
Cage, Esq. Director of the Society of Antiquaries. It will also be seen 
that the name of Robert Brito occurs among the witnesses to the charter, 
which purports to be a grant of the church and tithes of Talintune to 
the Priory of Belvoir.c This grant is not noticed in the new edition 
of the Monasticon.

•' The truth seems to be, that Dugdale has made an error, and confounded two persons 
into one, as remarked by Hornby, p. 105. The elder Maud de St. Liz, daughter of tlie 
Earl of Huntingdon, died in 1140 (Dugd. i. 218) ; but, according to Baker, was living 
in 1 147, whilst the second Maud de St. Liz, her daughter, who became the wife of Wil- 
liam de Albini Brito L was living in 1185, aged 60. See the Rotul. de Dominahus, p. I , 
MS. Harl. 2188, f.30 b, and Baker's Northamptonshire, vol. i. p.SOG. — Edit. 

c In a roll of knights' fees, taken 20 Hen. UL among the fees of William do Alliini is 
the following entry : " Will'us de Albiiiiaco tenet i feodum et dimid. in Oftiiigton, 
Talliiif^ldu et Casewykes, uude I'riorcs do Bclvtro, de Novo Loco, et de I3issemede feoffati

p. 42. And in 1277, Archbishop Kilwardby declared the right of the Priory of Belvoir 
(int. al.) to the a-lvowson of Talinlon. Monast. lii. 28r), new cd. 




These notes were taken by Mr. John Reynolds, jun. of Plaistow, co. 
Derby, about the middle of the last century', and exhibit faithfully the 
state of the monuments, &c. at that period. They are printed almost 
verbatim from a copy among the WoUey collections, MS. Add. 6701, 
Brit. Mus, which contains also occasional notes and additions made by 
Mr. Wolley himself, whose industry in compiling materials for the 
history of Derbyshire, is entitled to the praise of every native of that 


The chancel of the parish church here is built with an aisle on 
the south side thereof, the same as the church, which said aisle 
IS parted in two from north to south by iron rails or palisadoes, 
just by the chancel door, and the more easterly part thereof is 
the burying place of the ancient family of the Frechevilles, the 
principal branch whereof had their residence here for more than 
300 years, till it terminated in females, in 1682. 

The entrance into this burying place is on your right hand, 
just as you come up at the communion rails, through a pair of 
iron gates ; and the first and most remarkable object that pre- 
sents itself, is a curious painted window, just opposite to you, 
as you enter, which window is secured from injuries on the out- 
side by a fine grate of iron wire. 

This Mdndow contains three panes or lights, that in the middle 
being broadest, all of which are adorned with curious fohage, 
angels, &c. and five escutcheons of arms, two in each exterior 
pane or light, and one large one towards the bottom of the 
middle one, the blazon of all which follow : 

» The Wolley collections now form Nos. 6666—6716 of the Add. M8S. in the 
British Museum, and are comprised in fifty volumes of various sizes. — Edit. 

^ It fortunately happens that notes on the monuments and arms in Staveley church, 
were taken in the visitation of that county hy Rich. St. George, Norroy, in 1611, and 
suhsequently, about 1660, hy the antiquary Gervase Holies. The notes of the latter 
were printed in the Topoj^iuphef, vol. iii. j)p. 360-363, from MS. Harl. 68'2.9, and con- 
tain the same a»at»;/ inscriptions as above copied by Reynolds; but as these are but 
few, it was not thought advisable to omit them, since thej are now given more accurately 
than before. — Eiltl.

N. B. The north-east corner of this tombstone has been 
broken off, and the deficiency is supphed by a piece put in the 
place, without any letters upon it, which defect I have noted 
by the dotted space in the above inscription-^ 

Without the before-mentioned burying place, by the north 
wall of the chancel, and within the communion rails, stands an 
old chest-tomb, one of whose sides joins to the said wall, and the 
moulding round the other three sides is inlaid with brass, con- 
taining the following inscription in ancient letters : S 

[^©rate pro] animafau^ J>etri 5rrecl)ixic[[, ©'ni De [vl>tabelcj,i

N.B. The dotted spaces in this inscription denote where the 
brass is torn away^ and gone, and the plain spaces shew where 
the brass is left smooth, without having ever had ought en- 
graven thereon. 

On the top of this tomb is the portrait of the said Peter in 
brass, inlaid into the stone, and over his head an old man, 
sitting in a chair, with a glory about his head, and a crucifix 
leaning against his knees, to which from the mouth of the said 
Peter ascend two scrolls, on one of which (being that nearest 
you) is written : 

^'c'a ^Trinita^, un'' ©cuip, mi.^ercrc nofaii^. 
And on the other : 

<^zu^ p'pitiu^ c^to mif)! peccatori. 

Upon a brass plate fastened to the wall over the said tonil) is 
written (in eodem charactere) : '

Over this inscription are the portraits of the said Peter and 
Maud, drawn upon brass, and fixed to the wall, in kneeling 
postures, facing each other, (each having several of their children 
kneehng also behind them k), and from each of their mouths 
ascends a scroll to the Virgin Mary, who is represented sitting 
in a chair al)ove their heads, holding her son in her lap, (all of 
brass and inlaid in the stone wall,) and upon that scroll which 
issues from the said Peter's mouth, is written : 
^ancta Mam, ora pro nobt^. 
And upon that from Maud's, 

C> mater Dei, memento met. 

All the writing upon and about this monument is in the same 
ancient character, and very neatly engraven. 

There are also some broken alabaster pavers lying before the 
communion rails, on some of whose edges one may just discern 
there have been letters. As also one lying by Lady St. John's 
monument, but it has had every edge but one cut oif, to make 
it suit with the rest of the pavement. On that edge left, one 
may just discern, 

Cuju.iJ anime propitictuc ^tu^. 3men. 
but no more.' 

There are also several blueish flat stones lying as common 
pavers in the before-mentioned burying place, several of which 
have had brass inlaid round their edges, and the portraits of 
men or women in the middle of them, but the metal is become 
a prey to sacrilegious avarice. 

There is also an inscription affixed to the back side (as it were) 
of Lady St. John's monument (being the partition betwixt the 
before-mentioned burying place and the communion table) for 
one John Bullock, Gent, who died in ICDJ), whom the parish 
clerk of Staveley told me had been steward to John, Lord Fre- 
cheville. Upon [over ?] this inscription is an escutcheon, bear- 
ing Ermine, on a chief [gul."'], a label of 5 points [sab."], which 
is the coat armour of Bullock of Ounston, in the co. of l)er])y. 

Likewise upon the top and sides of the old tomb of Peyrs 
Freychwell (standing by the north wall) are several escutcheons ; 
some of Frecheville alone, others impaUng therewith a lion

upon the top towards the n. w. corner, is an escutcheon im])aling

The Hall stands just by the church, and is a fine old building, 
erected by Sir Peter Frecheville, in 1 604 : as an inscription cut 
upon a stone in the wall testifieth. Under this inscription are 
two coats impaled, the 1st Frecheville, the 2d charged with 2

J. Reynolds, Jun^ 

The ravages caused by time, and the destruction effected by less par- 
donable agents among the monuments of our parish churches, is, per- 
haps, no where more strikingly exemplified than in the instance of 
Staveley, and demonstrates the value of some work like the present to 
perpetuate what marble and brass fail in handing down to posterity. 
From Reynolds's account, only one window of painted glass remained 
when he visited the church, which was put up in the year 1 676' But 
in HoUes's time several similar windows, containing eleven coats of 
arms and four figures (viz. of John Frecheville, Esq. Elizabeth, his wife, 
Peter, his son, and a daughter) were in different parts of the building, 
all of which must have perished before the middle of the last century. 
They are copied by him in MS. Harl. 6829, p. 347, and described in 
the Topographer, vol. iii. p. 361. Yet this was not the only damage 
received by the chancel of the Frechevilles, for in the notes of St. 
George, taken half a century previous to Holies, are several more coats 
mentioned, which had disappeared when the latter visited Staveley ; 
and as these were not consulted by the editors of the Topographer, it 
cannot be deemed out of place to insert them here, from MS. Harl. 
5809, f. 34.

Two other windows are drawn by St. George, viz. one made by John 
Frcchevillc, Es(i. with tlie arms of Frccheville and Leek, and a second 
made by John Bakewell, chaplain, « with his arms, but as these are the 
same as those described from Holies in the Topographer, no further 
notice of them is necessary. Besides the above, St. (ieorge has pre- 
served two coats and inscriptions on grave-stones, wliich became obli- 
terated before Holles's visit. They are :

The Church here is built of stone, and the roof thereof covered 
with lead ; both the church and the chancel. At the west end is 
a tower, with an octagonal spire thereupon, in which tower is a 
ring of five excellent bells. 

The living is a Vicarage, but whether in the gift of Sir Wol- 
stan Dixie, of Market Bosworth, in the county of Leicester, 
Bart, or Sir Edward Wilmot, of Chaddesden, in the county of 
Derby, Bart, (both of whom claim the right of presenting to the 
vicarage) 'tis not in my power to determine." 

The present fabrick of the church seems to me to have been 
built at three several times from the different kinds of workman- 
ship of which it consists ; the north side appearing to be much 
the oldest, the body of the church or nave the next, and lastly 
the south aisle seems to be the newest of all. 

In the middle alley of this church, towards the middle of the 
same, is a large alabaster paver, to which is affixed a brass plate, 
containing the following inscription, in roman capitals : 








Weatcrost is for Wheatcroft, a village in Crich parish. 

In the same middle alley, but somewhat niglicr the chancel, is 
another brass plate, upon a common broad stone, having this in- 
scrii:)tion thereon, in antique characters :

There is no date ujion tliis plate, and I am told there is a stone 
coffin under the stone the plate is fastened to. 

There is also in this middle alley a sword drawn upon one of 

the pavers, wdth these letters H. W and 1657, being for 

one of the Woodwards of Tansley, who died that year, and had 
been a soldier in the army. 

Just before the reading-desk door is an inscription cut on a 
stone, for Ehzabeth daughter of Richard Taylor of Washington, 
who died in 1688, aged 28 years. 

In the N. E. corner of the church was a chantry, founded (as 
I have good reason to believe) in the time of king Edward the 
Third, by Sir William de Wakebrugge, Knight, the vestiges 
whereof plainly appear at this day." It was separated from the 
residue of the north aisle of the church at the second pillar from 
the east end thereof, so that two of the three windows looking 
northwards in the said north aisle gave light unto it, as well as 
to that in the east end. 

In this chantry the Pooles or Poles of Wakebridge had their 
burying place, who are descended from Cecily, the sole sister and 
heir of the before-mentioned William de Wakebrugge, which 
Cecily M^as married to John Pole, and from that match several 
families (if not all) of the Poles or Pooles in Derbyshire are de- 
scended. In an arch in the north wall of this church, betwixt 
the two windows looking northwards out of this chantry, lies the 
figure of a man, carved in aver}' white kind of freestone, haljited 
in a long vestment down to his ancles, and l^uttoned very thick 
with small buttons, from the neck down to the hips; with a long 
beard and long lank hair, his crown unshaven, and hands con- 
joined over his Ijreast and elevated ; resting his feet against a 
hound couchant; but both the figures of man and dog are much 

"^ Some iiiforiuatiun on this sul>Ject will be given in a future niiuibcr uf the Collec- 
tanea.— Edit. 


defaced.y There is an iron rail and palisadocs round it of 
rude workmanship, which pahsadoes are fastened into the lid or 
top of the tomb, whereon the said figures are carved, with lead, 
and the iron rail into the wall at both ends in the same manner, 
all of which seem very ancient, but there are neither arms nor 
inscription any where upon this tomb, neither have there been, 
neither in my time, nor any body's now living, that I could ever 
make out. Tradition says this is the tomb of the before-men- 
tioned William de Wakebrugge, and most probably it is so, as 
he founded the chantry in which it is. 

Within this chantry, on the left hand as you entered it by the 
old passage thereinto, (which was through a seat or pew adjoin- 
ing the reading desk,) but on the right, as you now enter it, 
stands an alabaster tomb, having the portraits of a man and a 
woman drawn out upon the top thereof, both in long vestments, 
adtalos demissa ; the man having a staff in his right hand, a pair 
of gloves in his left, and a hawk at his feet ; the woman a pair of 
gloves in her left hand, and nothing in her right, and an unicorn 
laid down at her feet. On the south-west corner of this tomb- 
stone, by the head of the man, is drawn an escutcheon of two 
coats quarterly, the 1st and 4th having an annulet (for a diifer- 
ence) on a chevron between 3 crescents, Poole, 2d and 3d, a fess 
between 6 lozenges, Wakebrugge, and on the northwest corner, 
just by the woman's head, is another escutcheon, xerry, Ferrers; 
but no colours are distinguished on any of them. 

Overcross the bottom or east end of this tombstone is the 
following inscription in roman capital letters, all of which are 
very plain, only the beginning of the Hnes are wanting, by reason 
of the southeast corner being broke off and lost.

It appears from the old parish register, that German Poole of 
Wakeliridge was buried 26'th April, 1588. 

About the middle of this chantry (being, as it now is, in the 
alley going down the north aisle) is a small grey marble stone, 
whereupon is fixed two brass plates, one of which has the portrait 
of a man in a long loose garment drawoi upon it, but the head is 
now taken away ; and the other has the following inscription in 
antique letters, but without date ?

There are several alabaster pavers in the floor of this chantry, 
which appear to have had inscriptions round their edges, but 
some parts of them are covered by pews, and the letters in 
other places partly worn out by frequently treading upon them, 
so that little can he made therefrom at this time. 

Going out of the church into the chancel, stand two alaliastcr 
tombs, one on each hand. That on the right, having the figure 
of a man in armour drawn upon the top, with his hands conjoined 
over his breast, and resting his left elbow upon his sword hilt. 
At the N. w. corner is an escutcheon, seemingly quartered, but 
no charge now visible thereupon.f* Round the edge of this 
tomb is written in antique characters :

one in the chancel. The insertions have been placed above. — Edit.

The tomb on the left hand is for one Claye of Crich, and his

of Tamworth Castle ; his second wife being Margaret, daughter 
to Edward Ferrers of Tamworth, Esquire, son of Sir John Fer- 
rers, of the same place, Knight, and widow of German Poole, of 
Wakebridge, Esquire ; that coat on the x. w. corner is his first 
wife's, alone, in a lozenge-shield, being a saltire engr. betw. 4 
cross-crosslets. [Calton.^ The colours on the arms upon this 
tomb are not distinguished. 

This tomb is so much worn with boys climbering upon it 
whilst the churchwardens suffered one Joseph Mather, a lame 
ignorant person, to teach school in the chancel, (which infamous 
practice was continued till about 1732,) that most of the writing 
is obliterated. What I have been able to make out is as follows. 

Down the south side of the top of this tomb, near the edge, 
and on the east end, is written : 





Overcross the middle of the tomb is drawn, as it were, a tablet

a long inscription thereon, but now greatly obliterated, and 
some part quite worn out. What I was able to make out here

There are three pannels on the south side of the tomb, upon

with their names added, Susanna, Mary, and Penelope, kneehig 
upon cushions, with their faces towards the east. Behind each of 
the two westermost (Susanna and Mary) are drawn escutcheons, 
party per pale, the dexter half being left uncharged (signifying 
they were unmarried at the erection of this tomb) and each of the 
sinister halves bearing their own arms. But behind that portrait 
which is the most easterly (Penelope) is a shield, party per pale,

dugdale's mss. additions to his baronage. 

These additions and corrections are copied from the MSS. notes of 
the author, in his own handwriting, inserted in a copy of his work now 
preserved among Cough's books in the Bodleian library. 

At some future period, a new edition of this valuable work may pro- 
bably be undertaken, and it is with the hope of contributing in no small 
degree to render it more complete, as well as more accurate, that the 
pages of the "Collectanea" have been opened to the Genealogist. In 
pursuance with this object, it is proposed to print from the stores of the 
Bodleian, the whole of the MSS. notes of Dugdale himself, and of Lc 
Neve ; as well as to glean from the additions made by other eminent 
antiquaries, inserted in various copies of the Baronage. There probablv 
exist many private collections directed towards the improvement of Dug- 
dale, and the Editors would feel obliged by the communication of any 
particulars which tend to illustrate the descents of the ancient Peerage. 

Page 1. " Earl of Gloucester." 

Having in my preface (which, in generall setteth forth the 
Designe of this worke) briefly intimated, that those eminent per- 
sons, who had the title oi Barks in this llealme, before the Nor- 
man-Conquest, were meerely officiary : before I come to the 
particular persons, in* that age, w^h were so called, of whom I 
have seen any thing memorable, I shall, by way of Introduction, 
take notice; that, as to their officiary imployment, they had the 
Rule and Government of the same Shires or Counties, whereof 

■" The arms, Azure, two chevrons or, usually given to the family of Musard, have, in 
the preceding communication, been assigned to FitzRalph on the authority of Sir 
Edward Walker, and the Visitations of Derbyshire ; but some doubts may exist whether 
Fitz- Ralph may not have been confounded witlj Fitz-Hanulph, lord of Alfreton, wlio 
bore the same coat. However this may be, no early instance has yet been met with of 
the right of the Musards to the above arms. — Edit.

they bad those Titles, and wherein they did reside. And as to 
the attribute and appellation of Comes or Count, it was by reason 
of their attendance on the king, as Companions in Councills, and 
upon all other great occasions; for w^h respect the territory, 
whereof they had the governance in a civill capacitie, was called a 

But, as the military chardge thereof lay also wboly on them, 
they are by our old writers frequently termed Duces ; that is to 
say, Comanders of those forces w^i were armed for the defence 
and preservation of the peace of those Countries ; and therefore 
by the Saxons called pejie-togan, the word pepe signifying an army. 
So that one and the same person is, by those ancient historio- 
graphers, sometimes called Dux, and sometimes Comes. 

They also not seldome [bear] the title of Ealdormen; no7i 
propter senectutem, sed propter sapientiam, as Roger Hoveden ex- 
presseth — not for their age, but for their wisdome ; w^li title of 
Ealdorman continued till about the yeare mxx. or reign of K. 
Canutus the Dane ; instead whereof, that king first brought in 
the name of Earle, w^i in the Danish language did denote men 
of that dignity and trust. 

It is, moreover, observable that in those days, sometimes the 
name of Consul, by reason of the king's advising wth them ; and 
sometimes Reguhis, and Sub-Regulus, from their ruling and 
governing in their respective provinces, was also attributed to 
them. But of them who bore those Titles, there ai-e very many, 
of whom not any thing more then the bare name is to be found, 
and no notice of the province or territory whereof they did pre- 
side ; as Athelme Dux, Alchere Consul, Alswold Comes, JEthelric 
suh-Regulus, Graphio Comes, Hocca Comes : How can it then be 
expected, that I should give an account of their chief Actings ; 
or that much can be sayd of any, considering how short our old 
writers are in relating the most memorable occurrences of those 
illiterate times. I have therefore confin'd my selfe only to such 
of whom I have met w'^^' anything much materiall ; beginning 
w^h the most antient, and so taking the rest in order.

since that time, seen a pedigree of that family oHVarren of Popn-

about well time, upon that motion made by H. Chichleyi 
Arch Bpp of (JTanterfeurp, that the King should rayse an Army, 
for recovering the Realme of ^France, w^l' was of right de- 
scended to him from his great-grandfather K. Edw. III. 
he proposed o that the warr should first begin in .^cotlanb ; w^i 
kingdome, being an easy conquest (as he sayd), would much 
conduce to the accomplishing that great designe. But the argu- 
ments used by Thomas Beaufort (then Earle of Dorset, and 
afterwards Duke of ^Ej^i'tcr) to begin w^li jfrance, being more pre- 
valent, it was so resolved on, and practised accordingly.

This Cartulary, containing 173 vellum leaves, was formerly in the 
library of Sir Robert Cotton, and is stamped with his arms on the cover. 
The form is a small 4to. bound in leather with clasps. On the fly leaf, 
in the beginning, are Sir Robert's instructions to the binder how he 
should bind it : " Bind this book very strong, cut it smoth, but as litle 
as you can. I care not for the new notts . lett it be don against Satur- 
day at night 3 in any cass I will then send for it .fayll not I pray you. 
Sow it carfully, and with twisted thred. Place the book as I have, 
alphabetically." (The words in Italics are so spelled.) 
On the second page of that fly leaf is " Vitellius D. 9. " 
On another fly leaf is this list of the contents (probably by Dr. Jam 

" Elenchus contentorum in hoc codice. 

1. Tabula Phlebotomise. 

2. Chronica brevis a Christi nativitate ad Ann. Dni 1328, in 
qua agitur de rebus Anglise, WaUize, Hibernian, Galiiae, &.c. 

3. Nomina Priorum Domus Sci Nicholai in Exon. 

4. Registrum Donius Sci Nicholai Exon. in quo etiani conti- 
nentur variae chartae et privilegia Domus Sci Martini de Bello,

concessa per Regem Johannem." 

This volume is not mentioned in the Cotton catalogues,^ and it ap- 
pears to have been lent to some person before these were made, who 
never returned it, and it has thus escaped entire destruction by the 
fire of 1731, when most of its neighbours in the Vitellius press were 
burnt. This short notice of the volume will serve to vouch for its au- 
thenticity, and as an introducdon to the following Index. The MS. 
was, recently purchased at the sale of ]\lr. Cooper, Dublin, for the library 
at Middle-Hill.

&C. &C. 

The Parish of Jarrow, in the County of Durham, is justly celebrated 
for its Monastery, founded in anno Domini 685 ; but its greatest glory 
is derived from the famous seminary of learning which flourished in that 
house in the 7th and 8th centuries ; and from its being the residence 
of the Venerable Bede, and the place where all his valuable works were 
written. The Church of Jarrow, too, still numbers three chapelries 
under it — those of Heworth, South Shields, and Wallseud ; and in for- 
mer times had three Roman towns or stations within it — one at Jarrow, 
another on the Law on the south side of the mouth of the Tyne, and the 
third at \\^allsend. Of this parish a summary account has been given in 
Hutchinson's History of Durham ; and a vigorous and more detailed de- 
scription of it is drawn by Surtees. The Treasury of the Dean and 
Chapter of Durham, however, contains vast stores of curious and valua 
ble unpublished materials, both respecting the monastery itself, and the 
parish at large. From these, some years since, I made a great number of 
extracts, with an intention of publishing a History of the Parish of 
Jarrow, and its three dependent chapelries. All hope of ever having 
leisure to accomplish that desirable object I have now for some time, but 
very unwillingly, relinquished. The plan of the Collectanea Topo- 
GRAPHicA seems, however, to offer a place of public reception to mate- 
rials such as I have collected ; and I therefore do myself the honour of 
soliciting the proprietors of that work to admit into it the following 
selections from my Jarrow portfolio. 

The first extract is of the date of 1 093, and after the expulsion of the dis- 
solute secular canons of Durham, by Bishop Carilepho in 1083, from the 
priory there, and the consequent removal of the monks of Jarrow and Wear- 
mouth to their vacant stalls. It contains a slight sketch of the boundaries of 
that part of the rectory of Jarrow w hich is situated on the south side of the 
Tyne, and also mentions the names of several townships within it, and 
of the yares or fisheries on that side of the river, as well as the names of 
the two townships Wallsend and \A'iHington (now VVillington) which 
form the present chapelry of Wallsend, and adjoin the north side of the 


The second and third articles show the value of the Tithes in the se- 
veral townships within the rectory, so far as they were let to annual 
tenants, in the years of the Bursar's Rolls from which the extracts are 
made, or were appropriated to individual ecclesiastics. 

The fourth extract gives a detail of the establishment of the Master 
and Brethren of the Cell of Jarrow ; and it is a curious inventory of their 
goods and chattels, spiritual as well as temporal. It proves that the 
Prior and Convent of Durham did not leave to their brethren of Jarrow 
an over ample means of support, after they had appropriated to them- 
selves the lands and tithes of nearly the whole parish. 

The fifth and sixth articles are extracts from two yearly rolls or 
accounts of the Bailiff of VVardley, where tie Priors of Durham had an 
^des Recreandl, or summer residence, situated within a deep four-sided 
intrenchment, enclosing an area of a little more than six acres. The 
second of these rolls has its back covered with various minor accounts 
of receipts and expenses, about the grange of the manor, for seed corn, 
oxen, poultry, implements of husbandry, repairs, and numerous other 
particulars. Then the expences at Harangaria, an establishment on the 
Tyne belonging to the Priory of Durham, for curing herrings ; and the 
compotus of the resident bailiffs at VVardley and Heworth, which con- 
tain many very curious particulars, but would be difficult to condense, 
and are too voluminous for publication in their original form. The ex- 
tracts given will, it is thought, be found interesting in a high degree to 
the reader who is acquainted with Wardley and its neighbourhood ; and 
cannot fail to engage the attention of general readers, on account of 
their showing the prices of provisions and labour in the north of England 
in the I 1th century.

The value of these documents to the Topographer is so obvious as to 
need no comment, and the utility of a list like the present to those who 
are in search of information not easily obtained, may be advocated on the 
authorities of Dugdale, Ashuiole, and Bishop Konnet (to say nothing of 


Tanner) all of whom compiled similar catalogues of cartularies, more or 
less perfect. The list which follows is the result of very considerable 
labour and research, and will doubtless be appreciated by those who know 
how to estimate it justly. Mere extracts of Cartularies have, in general, 
been omitted, unless the originals are destroyed or lost. In the column 
containing the names of possessors, those which are inserted on the au- 
thority of Dugdale or Tanner, are marked with a D. or T. and the date, 
when known, added. Some additions probably might be made to this 
list from the muniments of noblemen and gentlemen, still unexplored, 
and it is hoped that this work may be the means of bringing them to

According to Dugdale, Beatrix, an illegitimate daughter of the 
King of Portugal, married Gilbert Lord Talbot; became his 
widow on the 19th October 7 Hen. V. 1419 ; » married secondly 
on the 26th November 6 Hen. IV. 1404, Thomas Fitz Alan 
Earl of Arundel, who died 10 Octobers Hen. V. 1415 ;b and 
thirdly, in the 1 1th Hen. VI. 1432,c John Holland Earl of Hunt- 
ingdon ; whilst other autliorities state that the said Beatrix, 
widow of the Earl of Arundel, remarried Gilbert Lord Talbot, 
and after his decease became the wife of the Earl of Huntingdon, 
and then of John Fettiplace of Childrey in Berkshire.^ 

These assertions respecting Beatrix, natural daughter of the 
King of Portugal, have been repeated with slight variations by 
every genealogical writer who has mentioned her ; and no 
attempt has hitherto been made to reconcile the manifest contra- 
dictions in Dugdale's Baronage, or to ascertain the exact facts of 
the case. 

The following statements, which are founded upon evidence, 
throw much light on the point, if they do not even finally settle 
the question. 

John the First, King of Poi'tugal, besides the children by his 
Queen Philippa, daughter of John of Gant and sister of King 
Henry the Fourth, liad issue by Donna Agnez Pires, or Perez, a 
son named Alphonso and a daughter named Beatrix ; ^ the son 
Alphonso was legitimated by his father f on the 20th October

Joao I. do anno de 1383 ate ao anno 1433. Escritas pelo Academico Joseph Soares 
de Sylva." tonno i. pp. 246, 252. Sylva has devoted several pages to Agnes Perez aud 
her family. It appears that she became "Commendadeira " (that is, held a Com- 
mandery, assigned to her for her support,) or Superior of the Convent De Santos in Lis-

Braganza, and was the immediate ancestor of the present royal 
family of Portugal. 

Donna Beatrix was contracted in 1404 to Thomas Fitz-Alan, 
Earl of Arundel and Surrey, whom the Portuguese historians pro- 
perly describe " do sangue Real da Inglaterra," g as he was 
through one descent second cousin, and through another descent 
third cousin, of Philippa Queen of Portugal : and fourth cousin 
once removed of the King of Portugal his father-in-law.h It 
may be presumed that his marriage with Beatrix arose from his 
relationship to the Queen ; but no proof has been found that he 
was ever in Portugal. This alliance was proposed to Henry the 
Fourth by Sir John Vasquez de Almada and Doctor Martin 
Docem ; and Henry wrote to the King of Portugal signifying his 
approval of it. On the 29th October [query 1404] King John 
acknowledged the receipt of Henry's letter, and said that he 
should again write to him by Dr. Docem respecting the arrange- 
ments for Donna Beatrix's voyage, and on other matters con- 
cerning her marriage.i 

In April 1405 she was solemnly contracted to the Earl at 
Lisbon, his proxy being Sir John Huelcitsyra,^ first gentleman

143,9, which corresponds with the year 1401, as the Portuguese and Spanish aera 
till the year 1415, commenced thirty-eiglic years before the birth of Clirist according 
to the vulgar computation. It can scarcely admit of a doubt, that similar letters of 
legitimation were granted to his sister Beatrix.

Earl of Arundel in Blore's Monumental Remains. In February 2 Hen. IV. (1401) Dr. 
Martin de Serisu, Ambassador from the King of Portugal to Henry, is stated in a docu- 
ment in the Fcedera (viii. 178) to be then about to return to Poitugal. In September

'' Sir John Wiltshire, respecting wliom tlie following notices occur : In Novem- 
ber 1381 he was charged with having rescued a prisoner fiom the custody of the 
Keeper of the Fleet. (Rot. Pari. iii. 128.) He obtained letters of protection dated 
6th March 1386, in consequence of being about to serve under Jolin of Gant in Spain. 
(Fcedera, viii. 499.) Some messuages in Calais were granted to him and his wife 5lh 
October 1395. (Carte's Norman Rolls, ii. 171.) He was present with Thomas Filz- 
Alan Archbishop of Canterbury, and others, when Riciiard the Second solemnly pro- 
mised Richard Earl of Arundel that no harm should be done to him, a short lime 



of the Earl's household; ^ and about October in the same year 
she proceeded to England, accompanied, it appears, by her 
brother Alphonso Count of Barcellos."i Her marriage took 
place at Lambeth, with great splendour, on the 26th of Novem- 
ber following, in the presence of the King and Queen, the Prince 
of Wales, the Duke of York, the Earl of Kent, the Earl of War- 
wick, her brother Don Alphonso, and many other distinguished 
personages of the Court. Henry the Fourth acted as her father 
on the occasion, and a proces verbal of the ceremony, which was 
performed by her husband's uncle Thomas Arundel, Archbishop 
ot Canterbury, was legally executed and deposited among the 
archives of Portugal." She brought the Earl fifty thousand 
crowns,o one half of which sum was paid at her marriage, security 
being given for the remainder ; P but the expences attending her 
voyage were so heavy that in June following the Earl requested 
the King to remit him a debt which he owed to his Majesty, in 
consequence of the destruction of Arundel's lands in Wales, and 
of " les graundes charges q iay encountre la venue ma muliere," 
which petition was soon afterwards supported by a letter from 
the King, his father-in-law, to Henry .q 

before the Earl's execution in 1397. (Rot. Pari. iii. 435.) Sir John Wiltshire again 
obtained letters of protection on going abroad in April 1398 ; (Carte's Norman 
Rolls, ii. 175.) and in October 1403 he, Sir John Sutheron, and John Waleys, 
Esquire, " qui versus partes transmarinas profecturi sunt," received letters of general 
attorney. (Ibid. ii. 186.) On the 22nd April 1412 Wiltshire was appointed a com- 
missioner to settle a dispute respecting the ransom of the Count of Denia. (Foedera, 
viii. 730.) His name frequently occurs in St. Lo Kniveton's Collection for a History 
of the Earls of Arundel, MS. Harl. 4840, and at f. 621 he appears from an inquisition 
after the death of Beatrix Countess of Arundel, 18 Hen. VI. to have then been dead.

ceremony ; and two writs are printed in the Foedera, the one dated 20th January and 
the other on the 18ih February 7 Hen. IV. 1406, commanding that the goods and 
mercliaodize, to the value of 100/., of " Alphonso Count of Barceilos, son of the King of 
Portugal, then lately arrived in England," and of certain Knights in his suite, should be 
allowed to pass free of duty. Tome viii. pp. 428, 431.

The Earl of Arundel died witliout issue on the 13th October 
3 Hen. V. 1415;'' and in 1421 his widow, describing herself as 
" Beatrix who was the wife of Thomas late Earl of Arundel," 
presented a petition to the King in which she stated that she was 
born and engendered in Portugal, ("nee et engendree en la terre 
de Portingale") ; that since her marriage with the late Earl he 
was seised of divers castles, manors, lands, &c. in England and 
Wales, part in fee simple and part in fee tail ; that some of the 
heirs and " terretenaunts " of the late Earl had disturbed the 
petitioner of her reasonable dower, alleging that she was not 
dowable because she was born and engendered in Portugal, to 
her great injury. She therefore prayed that it might be ordained 
by the authority of Parliament, that she might be enabled in law 
to enjoy her dower in the said lands as effectually as if she had 
been born the King's liege woman in the kingdom of England, 
which request was granted.* 

The next notice of her is that on the llth February 5 Hen. 
VI. 1426, by the style of Beatrix Countess of Arundel, she re- 
ceived letters of protection, being about to go abroad.* In Feb- 
ruary, 10 Hen. VI. (1432) she executed a receipt for 40/. from 
her late husband's sister, whom she describes as, " sorore nostra 
Johanna de Bello campo, Domina de Bergavenny," being part 
of a larger sum for the purchase of her dower of Bromfield and 
Yale, in the marches of Wales and Essex." To this instrument 
her seal, of which the annexed engraving is a copy, was affixed.

In the 11th Hen. VI. 1433, Beatrix Countess of Arundel 
married John Holland, Earl of Huntingdon, afterwards Duke of 
Exeter, the license for which alliance is dated on the 20th Jan- 
uary in that year :

In August in the same yeai' the Countess lost her father 
the King of Portugal, who in his will, dated in 1426, speaks 
of her as his daughter Beatrix Countess of Arundel in England.^ 
In the inscription on his tomb he is said to have left two 
daughters, " quarum una erat Domina Infans Elizabeth Ducissa 
Burgundiae, et Comitissa Flandriae, et aliorum Ducatuum, et 
Comitatuum ; et alia Domina Beatrix Comitissa Huntinto et 
Arondel ; quae in suis terris pernianebant." ^ 

The Earl of Huntingdon was appointed Lieutenant of Guienne 
for six years in the 16 Hen. VI. 1487,^ to which province he 
appears to have been accompanied by his Countess, as she died 
at Bordeaux without issue on 13th November 1439.^ She was 
buried with her first husband in the College of Arundel, and the 
following notice of the circumstance occurs in the Register of 
tlie Priory of Lewes.^

The effigies of the Earl and his Countess were placed on their 
tomb, an engraving and description of which is given in Stothard's 
Monumental Effigies and in Blore's Monumental Remains.^ 

y Rot. Patent. II Hen. VL p. 1, m. 14, The fact of her having actually married th« 
Earl of Huntingdon (which the royal license by itself would not prove) appears from the 
inquisitions taken after the death of John, Earl of Arimdel, 14 Hen. VL 1436", in which 
she is called " Beatrix jam uxor Johannis, Comitis Huntyngdon." (MS. Harl.4840, 
ff. 581 ""j 590 ) ; as well as from the epitaph on her fatiier's monument.

« Sir William Burrell, who visited this tomb in 1780, says that at that period the 
only arms visible on it were those of Fitzalan and Warren, impaling Bohun and Beau- 
champ (MS. Add. 56'99), and this statement has been negligently adopted by Gough, 
DallawBv, and others. But twenty years later, as the Editors are assured by an able 



All which is known of Beatrix Countess of Arundel having 
been alluded to, the following particulars will be added of Beatrix 
Lady Talbot ; from which it will be evident that she was a dis- 
tinct person from the Countess of Arundel and Huntingdon, with 
whom she has been hitherto erroneously identified. 

antiquary and herald, at the S. E. angle of the monument was a shield, supported by an 
angel, on which clearly appeared the arms of Fitzalan and Warren, quarterly, impaling 
Portugal, precisely as on the seal of the Countess of Arundel. On the south side of the 
tomb five other coats were also then distinguishable, and among them the escutcheon of 
Portugal, as borne by the Dukes of Braganza. In one of the Wriothesley MSS. sold 
from the library of Sir George Nayler, Garter King of Arms, (as we are informed by a 
correspondent,) drawings of the whole of these shields exist, taken in the time of Henry 
VIII. when the monument was in a perfect state. At present (I8a3) scarcely a trace of 
the arms supported by the angel remains, and of the other five coats, only one (the 
second from the S. E. corner) is suflSclently perfect to elucidate this inquiry. It still 
distinctly retains on the sinister side the border of castles dimidiated. 

Dallaway, in a note to his History of Sussex, vol. ii. p. 19S, new ed. describes some 
j)aintings of the Earls and Countesses of Arundel, formerly extant in the windows of the 
chapel, and refers to the Visitation of 1 634 (MS. in Coll. Arm. and MS. Harl. 1076) as 
his authority. Among these he instances Thomas Earl of Arundel, and Beatrix of Por- 
tugal, his wife ; but on examining the MSS. referred to, there ap|jears no evidence to 
warrant such a description ; the whole of which betrays such an extraordinary want of 
accuracy, as to create a very unfavourable opinion of Mr. Dailuway's topographical 

It may be worth notice here (particularly since the historian just cited has omitted 
to mention it,) that in the Burrell collection of monuments in the chapel at Arundel 
(MS. Aild. 56'99, f. 25 ^) is a drawing of a grave-stone, near the foot of the Countess 
Beatrix's monument, on which were the figures in brass of John Threel, marshall of the 
liousehold to William Earl of Arundel, and Joan, his wife. The latter died 14 Sept. 
1459, and beneath her efiigy was inscribed :

The brass is now destroyed. A little to the left of the above, and immediately below 
the Countess's tomb, is the grave-stone of Thomas Salmon, Esq. Usher of the Chamber 
to King Henry V. and of Agnes, his wife, " alias dicta D'Olyvere, nuper de Portugalia, 
jirincipalis nuper mulier illustris d'ne Beatricis Comitisse Arundell et Surr." She died 
'M May 1418. Pier arms (which are torn from the stone) were 6 crescents, 2, 2, and 
2, impaled with an eagle displayed, bearing on its breast a leopard's head, for Salmon. 
The figure of her husband has been taken away ; but that of the lady still remains, and is 
a beautiful specimen of the dress of that period. An engraving of it will appear in the 
History of Arundel Castle, by the Rev. M. A. Tierney, Domestic Chaplain to his Grace 
the Duke of Norfolk, which is now in the press. — Edit. 



Of the pedigree of Lady Talbot nothing can with certainty l)e 
said, and the only evidence on the subject is her arms. The 
seal, of which the annexed is an engraving, is taken from a draw- 
ing in a manuscript in the British Museum : f 

This seal is inscribed, "sigillvm beatricis talbot d'ne 
DE BLAKEMERE," and occurred to a grant of a fee of lOOs. yearly 
value to Richard Cholmundleigh, seneschal of the manors of 
Blakemere, Dodington, and Cheswardin, in Shropshire, in the 
8th Hen. V. In the Church of Whitchurch the same arms 
formerly stood ; viz. Talbot quartering Strange, impaling quar- 
terly, 1 and 4, Argent, five escutcheons in cross azure, each 
charged with five plates in saltire, for Portugal ; 2 and 3, Azure, 
five crescents in saltire or ; with this inscription, " Gilbertus 
Talbott Do. de Blakmere et Beatrix uxor ejus." s 

Of Lady Talbot but little is known. She was the second wife 
of Lord Talbot; and on his death on the 19th October 7 Hen. V, 
1419, Ankaret his only child was about three years of age,i so 
that she must have been married before 1415. 

Immediately after Lord Talbot's decease a writ was issued to 
the escheator of Shropshire, stating that Beatrix the widow of 
Lord Talbot was born in Portugal ; that during the time 
that his wife was an alien, they became seised of the manor of 
Blackmere, alias Whitchurch, to the use of himself and the

Her daughter Ankaret died in 1421,1 being then about five 
years old, leaving her father's brother. Sir John Talbot, after-

year 1423 Lady Talbot married her second husband Thomas 
Fettiplace of East Shefford, in Berkshire, Esquire, of an ancient 
family in that county. Fettiplace had been appointed by Lord 
Talbot on the 17th September 1413, Steward of the manor and 
hundred of Bampton,™ and possibly it was this Thomas Fetti- 
place who in 1421 obtained a grant of a house in the town of 

Lady Talbot died on Christmas Day 26 Hen. VI. 1447, 
leaving her son William Fettiplace her heir, who M'as then twenty- 
four years of age.o According to the pedigrees of Fettiplace in 
the Heralds' Visitations of Berkshire, she had several other chil- 
dren, namely, James, John, and Constance, whose descendants 
flourished in various branches for several generations. In 1G61 
John Fettiplace of Childrey was created a Baronet,P and the 
title did not become extinct until 1743.

JOHNSTON, 31. D. 1701. 

From a transcript among Mr, Gough's MSS. in the Bodleian library. 
The original is preserved among the evidences of the family. See 
Hunter's History of South Yorkshire, vol. ii. p. 57, sq. 


This Thomas Foljambe, being the antientest person of the 
family, which manifestly appears in the original deeds which 
hitherto I have found, I shall begin with him; and if I shall hap- 
pen to meet with any evidence of his predecessors besides, I shall 
give an account of them in a proper place. 

That it may appear of what quality this Thomas Foljambe 
was, and the time when he lived, the following prescript will 
evidence ; 

No. 1. Whereby Nicholas de Edensover appoints John de 
Baukwell (now called Bakewell) to perfect the agreement be- 
tween Thomas Foljambe, Balivum de Pecco, concerning Rents 
in Longsdein.— Dated 1272, 56 Hen. III. 

That he held this office, appears likewise by another deed : 

No. 2. Whereby Nicholas son of Peter de Hope, com. Derb. 
gives to Roger Woodrove of Hope, lands in Hope : — Testibus 
Tho. Foljambe, tunc custode Ballivat. de Pecco ; Will^^o 
Hallye, Petro de Heysill, Rog. fratre ejus; Rob. Balguy ; Will^o 
le Hey res, now called Eyre. 

I find also that Thomas executed the same office, by the follow- 
ing Deed : (No. 3.) Wherein Roger Woodrove, of Hope, gives 
to Nicholas his son, lands in Hope : Test. D"" Tho. Foljambe, 
Ballivo de Pecco; Rob^" Balguy ; Will'^o le Heyres; Rich. fil. 
Will"'' de Hope. — Sans date. 

From this deed it appears that now this Thomas Foljambe, 
Bailiff of the Peak, had the title of Dominus, which, though it 
does not always import that the person before whose name D. 
or Dom. was prefixed, was a Knight, unless the word Miles was 
superadded, yet it always signified the person so denominated 


to be then what we now repute to be in next degree to a Knight, 
as our Esquires are. 

Secondly, it is observable that in our age, Jane, daughter and 
coheiress of Ellis Woodrove of this very Hope, was married to 
Peter Foljambe, Esquire, father of the present Francis. 

Thirdly, I must observe that the Peak of Derbyshire is an 
antient honour belonging to the crown, in which is a castle stiled 
De Alto Pecco, and the Wapentake is called the Wapentake of 
the Peak ; and within it is a forest called the Forest of the Peak, 
as De Campana is in Latin. 

Also in that age it was an honourable employment to be 
Bailiff. Then such as either Knights or persons of Quality were 
intrusted with the custody of the office, as will appear in several 
deeds hereafter to be inserted, wherein Sir William Horsenden, 
Knight, then Bailiff, hath the precedence in the order of ranking 
the Witnesses, before several knights in Deed 23. As also 
Henry Fleming, a person of an antient family of that surname in 
the Deed 31. 

No. 4. It appears also (Dods. Coll. W. 132) that this 
Thomas Foljambe, 8 Edw. I., was a Knight, by the^ following 
Deed, wherein Richard de Weston, Knight, gives to the monas- 
tery of Blida (Blythe in com. Nott.) all his right in the advow- 
son of the church of Weston. Testibus Dno. Tho. de Furnival 
(Lord of Sheffield) D'^o. Hug. de Pierpoint, D^o. Rich, de Sher- 
burne, D"o. Tho. Foljambe, D^o. Johan. Heyrce, Tho. Allale de 
Welbeck, Ra. de Noketon : Dat. 1280.— 8 Edw. L 

No. 5. Also in the following deed (Dods. Coll. F. 142) 
wherein Rich, de Sylveyne, de Thorp, Knight, son and heir of 
Osbert de Sylvayne, gives to the Canons of Radford (Worksop 
Abbey) of the Grant of his Ancestors, Lands in Nether- Thorpe, 
Ravinal (Ranfield), Testibus, Thom. de Furnival; Thorn, de 
Foljambe ; Tho. de Eyvill ; Rob. de Montney ; John de Orbery ; 
et Joh. de Bayley, militibus. By this it appears that he had the 
Precedence of all the following Knights of ancient and eminent 
families there mentioned ; and the very next to Tho. de Furnival, 
a great Baron in those parts. That this was the first Thomas is 
manifest in that he died not until the 11th Edw. L And I do 
not find iiis son Thomas to be a knight, before the 16th Edw. I. 
or thereabouts. 

Having found nothing more considerable, I proceed now to 
the treating of the time of his death ; towards the clearing of 


which, I am beholden to the help of the collections of that most 
industrious antiquary Roger Dodsworth, Esquire; whose volu- 
minous manuscripts I had the perusal of, before they were given 
by his great patron Thomas Lord Fairfax of Cameron, to the 
Bodleian Library in Oxford. This laborious gentleman hath 
exhibited a Record (No. 6), wherein it appears, that this Tho- 
mas Foljambe paid 400 marks for the firm of the castle in the 
Peake for nine years (Dods. Collect. II. 58). By which it may 
be computed that he held that castle in firm for nine years, and 
it may be presumed that the demesne and bailiwick of the Wa- 
pentake, and it may be the Forest, were included. The same 
author hath from the Record (No. 7) of Escheat inserted that 
he died on Saturday next after the feast of St. Hilary, 1 1 Edw. I. 
and held of the King an Oxgang of land by the Sergeantry of 
keeping the King's forest de Campana, (which was the stile of 
the forest in the Peak, as will elsewhere appear) himself serving 
on hoi'seback with his servant on foot (garsoigne ejus ante 
pedem) ; and divers other lands, paying rent to the castle of 
Dover (as in the Transcript, for Derby, as I suppose) ; and that 
he held sixty acres of land in Tideswell of Sir John Daniel ; 
and that Thomas was his son and heir, twenty-seven years of age. 

As to the children of this Thomas Foljambe, Knight, it is 
clear by the preceding Escheat that Thomas was his son and heir, 
of whom and his descendants I shall treat hereafter. 

Also finding a clear proof of a daughter he had, called 
Cecilia, before I proceed to enquire into the doubtful title of the 
rest of his sons or brothers, I shall here insert what I find of 
this Cecilia : No. 8. For I find a fine levied 8 Edw. L three 
years before the death of this Thomas, inter Tho. Foljambe 
quer. et Rad, de Eccleshall, deforciant, of the Manors of Eccles- 
hall and Aldwark, and forty shillings rent in Thorp, and twenty 
shillings rent in Dalton, and five shillings rent in Routhmarshe 
(now called Rawmarsh), all which lands are in Yorkshire. The 
right of Thomas for life. Remainder to Robert son of the said 
Ralph and Cecilia his wife, daughter of the said Thomas Fol- 
jambe. By this fine the quality of the said Thomas Foljambe 
is farther illustrated, in that his daugiiter was married into so 
worshipful a family as that of Eccleshall of Eccleshall, near Shef- 
field, in com. Ebor. was. It is further also observable, that after 
a long series of years, these lands, or at least considerable lands 
in these very towns should be part of the inheritance of the pre- 


sent heir of the family of Foljambe, descending to them by the 
heiress of Fitzwilliam of Aldwark. 

I shall begin with such as for the ancientness of their deeds, 
without dates, I presume might be brothers of the first Sir Tho- 
mas ; especially those, whose sons where any of them appear to 
have had sons, were found to be living in the time of the first or 
second Sir Thomas. 

I shall therefore begin with John Foljambe ; though I find no 
special deede, wherein he is either styled brother or son of the 
first Sir Thomas, in which either he passeth or purchaseth lands ; 
yet because there are great numbers of deeds, wherein his son 
Thomas, by the name of Thomas son of John Foljambe is a 
party, I shall give this John the preference to William, Roger, 
and others who were contemporary with Thomas son of John 

I shall begin with the Deed following: (No. 9.) — Wherein 
Richard Danyel of Tideswell, com. Derb., gives to Thomas de 
Wymondham, Clerk, the lands of Thomas Danyel his brother in 
Tideswell — Testibus Ric. de Vernon, Will, de Horsenden 
(who was knight afterwards), Hen. de Lytton, Joh. Foljambe, 
Hug. Martin. Ex autograph, sans date. 

No. 10. I am prone to believe that this John Foljambe, a wit- 
ness here, might be father of Thomas, of which see more in the 
first deed of his son Thomas. See Deed, No. 23, and compare it 
with this : for it is not improbable that John Foljambe then wit- 
ness, was father of Thomas. 

The first Deed (No. 11.) to prove this Thomas Foljambe to be 
the son of John shall be what hath so near relation to the first 
deed wherein John Foljambe is witness ; wherein Thomas of 
Wymondham gives to Thomas son of John Foljambe, the same 
lands in Tideswell, ex traditione D"* Ric. Danyel. Testibus D"o 
Rich, de Vernon ; Rob^o de Hurdhill ; Ricli. le Ragged ; Rad. 
de Win; Tho. le Archer; Tho. fil. Rogeri de Foljambe. Ex 
autograph, sans date. 

No. 12. I shall next place such Deeds as prove that this Tho- 
mas son of John Foljambe had lands in Tideswell ; as in the fol- 
lowing Deed: Wherein Baldwin de Hersy and Cecilia his wife, 


give to Thomas Foljambe, son of John Foljambe, lands in Tides- 
well. Sans date. 

No. 13. Also Cecilia, daughter of Richard Herfield, gives to 
Thomas Foljambe lands in Tideswell. Testibus A^'ill. Fol- 


jambe, Sec. 1 am prone to believe that this William was uncle 
to this Thomas. 

No. 14. I find also in an agreement between John Daniel of 
Tideswell, and Thomas son of John Foljambe, whereby John 
Daniel gives to this Thomas ten acres in Kirk-Furlong, in Lyt- 
ton-Dale, and Thomas gives to John Daniel eleven acres in 
Tideswell. Testibus Rich. Vernon ; Will, de Morteyne; Gilb. 
Francis ; Gervas. Bernake ; Rob. de Harthill ; Rob. Abney ; 
Will, de Heyley ; Tho. le Archer; Rich. Ragged; Johanna 
filio Rogeri Foljambe. See another Deed, No. 26. 

No. 15. That this Thomas, son of John Foljambe, lived in 
the time of the first Thomas, 7 Edward I. appears by the follow- 
ing Deed, wherein Sir Richard Daniel of Tideswell gives to 
Thomas, son of John Foljambe, lands in Tideswell, near the end 
of the lane in Litton, near Greenhow, and lands upon Kirk- 
Furlong, towards the manor of the said Thomas Foljambe. 
Test. Johanne fil. Hugonis Martin; Johanne filio suo. Dat. 7 
Edw. 1. 

This Deed is sufficient of itself to prove that this John, father 
of Thomas, was not the son of the first Sir Thomas, where this 
Thomas his son lived so early in the age of the first Sir Thomas. 
Therefore I conclude him to be the brother of the first Sir 

By the word Manor may be either understood his mansion- 
house or his manor-house ; and if the latter, then this Thomas 
seems to have had a manor here in Tideswell. 

That this Thomas, son of John Foljambe, had lands also at 
Little Hocklow, appears by these following Deeds: (No. 16.) 
Wherein Richard Daniel of Tideswell, gives to Richard, son 
of Rawkill, of Little Hocklow, all his right in the lands of Little 
Hocklow. Test. Will. Morteyn ; Gerv. de Bernake ; Joh. 
Harthill ; Rob. frat. ejus, — militibus : Hen. do Tuddington ; Rob. 
de Abney; Will. Haley; Tho. le Archer; Rich, le Ragged; 
Joh. Foljambe, filio Rogeri. 

No. 17. The same Richard, son of Rawkhill of Little Hock- 
low, gives to Thomas, son of John Foljambe, several lands in 
Little Hocklow. Testibus D°*^ Roberto de Harthill; Hugone 
de Styley ; Tho. le Archer; Will'"" Foljambe ; Tho. de Worm- 
hill, clerico. 

No. 18. He appears likewise to have lands in Bakewell by the 
following Deed: — Wherein Crervas de Nottingham gives to 


Thomas, son of John Foljambe, four acres in Bakewell. Testibus, 
Rad. de Wyn ; Rob. frat. ejus. 

No. 19. Also Robert de Attburn gives to the same Thomas, 
son of John Foljambe, several lands in Bakewell. Test. D^o 
Robto de Herthill, Rad. le Wyn. 

No. 20. He also had lands in Litton or Lyetou, as appears 
by the following Deed : — Wherein William, son of Ulcotes de 
Lyeton, gives to Thomas, son of John Foljambe, lands in Lye- 
ton. Sans date. 

No. 2L Also Andrew de Schagsby gives to the same Thomas 
lands in Lyeton. Test. Willmo Foljambe; Tho. Foljambe. Sans 

No. 22. This Thomas was a clerk, as appears by the next 
Deed. Also the same Andrew de Schagsby grants to the same 
Thomas Foljambe six shillings rent in Leyton, which Thomas, 
son of Robert Baumford, knight, used to pay. Testibus Will. 
Hayley; Roberto Bozon ; Will. Foljambe; Tho. Foljambe, 
clerico. Sans date. 

It is probable that this Thomas Foljambe, clerk, is the same 
with Thomas de Wormhill, clerk, in Deed, No. 17. But whose 
son this Thomas was I have not found. 

This Thomas, son of John Foljambe, had also lands in Worm- 
hill, as appears by the following Deed: (No. 23.) 

Wherein Robert, son and heir of Robert de Wormbill (some- 
times written Wermhill, but generally Wormhill) gives to Tho- 
mas, son of John Foljambe, lands of the inheritance of his father 
in Wormhill. Testibus, D^o Willmo de Horsenden, ballivo de 
Pecco ; Will, de Morteyne : Gervasio Bernake ; Richardo 
Daniel,— militibus ; Robto le Archer ; Rich, le Ragged ; Johan. 
Foljambe. Sans date. 

No. 24. John, son of Adam Forrester of Wormhill, gives to 
Thomas, son of John Foljambe, lands in Wormhill. Test. 
Will. Foljambe. Sans date. 

No. 25. Also Thomas, son of Nicholas de Theyres, gives to 
the same Thomas nine acres in Wormhill. Testibus, Di^o Will'"o 
de Morteyne ; Gervasio Bernake, militibus ; Will. Foljambe, 
Tho. filio Rogeri Foljambe, Henrico et Wlllielmo fratribus ejus. 
Sans date. 

No. 26. I have found also a different deed of exchange from 
that mentioned before. No. 14, between John Daniel, and Tho- 
mas son of John Foljambe ; asfolloweth. Wherein John Daniel 


gives to Thomas, son of John Foljambe, the culture of Kirk 
Furlong, and Salterford in Lytton Dale and Customes Furlong, 
and the said Thomas gives to the said John (there called John 
Deryn) in exchange, lands in Tideswell. Testibus, D^'^ Ric. 
de Vernon, Will. Morteyne, Gilberto Francis, Gervasio Ber- 
nake, Rob. de Harthill, militibus ; Will. Foljambe ; Thomas 
son of Roger Foljambe; Rob. Bozon; Rob. de Stanton; Hen. 
fiho Rogeri Foljambe; Hugone Martyn. Sans date. 

This Deed must be made before the 6th Edw. I. because Sir 
Gilbert Francis was dead in that year, as appears by the Inquisi- 
tion then taken at his death. 


I suppose that William Foljambe was another brother of Sir 
Thomas Foljambe, because I find him witness to several Deeds 
before other branches of the surname, as in Nos. 13, 17, 21, 22, 
24, 25, 26, 27. 

I place these references to the Deeds that the reader may con- 
sider their proofs without inlarging these collections with repeti- 
tions. I shall therefore add one Deed to clear the matter, which 
may be referred to what I have formerly specified in Lytton or 
Litton. It is as followeth : 

No. 27. Margery daughter of Lucy de Weyley gives to 
Thomas, son of John Foljambe, 7 acres in Lyeton. Testib. 
j)no W'ill. Haley (he was afterwards Bailiff of the Peak), Wil- 
liam Foljambe, Thomas son of Roger Foljambe, Hugone 
Martyn. Sans date. 

That this William Foljambe was not that William Foljambe 
who was brother to the second Sir Thomas Foljambe will appear 
in its proper place. Though I believe that William had his 
Christian name from this William, of which first William I find 
no issue, and its probable that the second William was the 
inheritor of what estate this William had. 


Although I find no Deeds wherein any estate was either con- 
veyed to this Roger or from him, yet being styled in many Deeds 
father of John, Thomas, Henry, William, and Hugh Foljambe. 
all or most of which lived in the time of Thomas, son of Johr 
Foljambe, as appears in the Deeds before recited, No. 11, 25, 26, 
I give him a place among the brothers of the first Sir Thomas. 




Although I have seen no Deeds which positively prove this 
John to be the eldest son of Roger, yet finding the Deeds 
wherein he is styled the son of Roger, of the number of the 
ancient ones without date, till I am better informed I place him 
the eldest. The Deeds wherein by that style he is mentioned 
as witness, are No. 14 and J 6, which positively style him John, 
son of Roger Foljambe, before the 7th of Edward I. as Deed 14 

No. 28. But it is not certain whether it be of this John 
whereof Mr. Dodsworth gives the following account ; 

That in 2 Edw. II. there was a return of an ad quod damnum 
that John Foljambe of Bi'ode may have a mess, and two bovates 
in Wyfield, purchased by James Mainwaring of Derby. 


By denomination of Thomas Foljambe, son of Roger Fol- 
jambe, he is witness to the Deeds No. 11, 25, 26, and 27. 

No. 29. Also John Daniel of Tideswell gives to Thomas, 
son of Roger Foljambe of Wormhill, half of the mill of Fairfield 
and the service of it. Test. D^^^ Alano, Vicario de Tideswell ; 
Will. Foljambe, Tho. Foljambe, brothers. Sans date. 

Who those Will, and Tho. were, being brothers, is not easy 
to guess, for there is no mention of two brothers of these 
names where William is the elder brother, unless they were 
sons of the first Thomas, and then William must be the elder 
brother; or else they were sons of Robert Foljambe, of whom 

It seems probable to me that this Thomas, son of Roger, had 
a son called Thomas, as will appear in a Deed No. 31, wherein 
I treat of Henry Foljambe, Bailiff of Tideswell : and it may be 
he had also a son called Henry, unless that Henry be a younger 
son of the first Thomas, for which Deed No. 37 may be consulted. 


These appear by the following Deeds, wherein, (No. 30) 
John Daniel, son and heir of Sir Richard Daniel, gives to 
John Martin, son of Hugh Martin, lands in Tideswell. Testibus 
DnoTho. Foljambe, Ada de Herthill, militibus ; Will. Foljambe; 


Thomas, son oJt' Roger Foljambe ; Henry and William brothers. 
Sans date. 

By this it appears that they Hved in the time of the second 
Sir Thomas Foljambe, and this William Foljambe the witness 
must either be W^illiam the brother of the first or second Sir 
Thomas, for William son of Roger was a younger brother of 
Thomas son of Roger Foljambe. 

These brothers will also be further cleared in my relation of 
W^illiam, brother of the second Sir Thomas. 

These Henry and William, brothers of Thomas, son of Roger, 
were witnesses in the Deeds No. 25, 26, 30, 40, 42, to which I 
must refer the inquisitive reader. 

As to Henry, particularly, see Deed No. 27. 


This will appear in a Deed, No. 29, as also in the next Deed, 
wherein I treat of Henry Foljambe, Bailiff of Tideswell, No. 31. 


I am prone to think that this Henry was a younger brother of 
the first Sir Thomas by the date of this following Deed, wherein, 

No. 31. Richard, son of Richard Daniel of Tideswell, gives 
John, son of Hugh Martin of Tideswell, lands which he held of 
John Daniel his brother. Dated May 12, 1288, 16 Edw. I. 
Testib. Joh. Fleming, Ballivo de Pecco; Hen. Foljambe tunc 
Ballivo de Tideswell ; Tho. son of Tho. Foljambe. 

And this may be a son of Thomas, son of Roger, as I have 
hinted, in a Deed No. 29. 

The rest of the witnesses are Hugh, son of Roger Foljambe, 
Thomas, Andrew, and Henry Andrew's brother. 

The reason why I believe this Thomas, son of Thomas Foljambe, 
to be son of Thomas son of Roger, rather than the eldest son of the 
first Sir Thomas, is, because he follows after Henry the Bailiff 
of Tideswell, whom he would have preceded if he had been the 
eldest son of the first Sir Thomas ; besides, 1 find that Thomas, 
eldest son of Sir Thomas, was then a Knt. and this Thomas, the 
witness, may have the precedence of Hugh though his uncle, as 
being the eldest son of Thomas, son of Roger. 


1 find Robert Foljambe witness with William Foljambe, the 
H 2 


first of that name, and in order after him, but not styled his 
brother, as usual where two of a name are witnesses together, if 
they were brothers, are so styled. Yet I am prone to believe that 
William and Robert were brothers of the first Sir Thomas; 
otherwise I am ignorant who was their father ; for by the date of 
the Deed No. 32, it appears that his son Thomas lived the 6th of 
Edw. I. that is five years before the first Sir Thomas died, so that 
then this Robert might be as old as the other Brother of the first 
Sir Thomas. 


This is proved in the following Deed, wherein William and 
Thomas are styled brothers (No. 29), which can agree with none 
so well as these. Though I find no issue by him ; for Richard, 
son of William, seems to me rather to be the son of William, bro- 
ther of this second Sir Thomas, as in Deed No. 38 will appear, 
but in No. 29, William and Thomas are positively styled brothers. 


I find that Thomas, son of Robert Foljambe, lived in the 
6th Edw. I. by this following Inquisition recorded by Mr. 
Dodsworth, wherein he recites that (No. 32) Thomas, son of 
Robert Foljambe, was one of the Jury with Thomas de Langford 
and Adam de Hertley at an Inquisition taken after the death of 
Gilbert Francis, who held the manor of Haddon, now the in- 
heritance of the Earl of Rutland. By this it appears that Gilbert 
Francis was dead the 6th Edw. I. 

No. 33. I find also that the I4th Edw. I. Thomas, son and 
heir of Robert Foljambe, held the lands in Wormhill, which was 
a town in which the younger sons of the family had estates, as ap- 
pears by several Deeds, and its probable they reverted to the 
family when they died without issue male. 

No. 34. Thus I have given the best account from the original 
Deeds, of all the persons I have found relating to this family 
out of the oldest Deeds, and not finding any certain designation 
of the fathers of John, William, the eldest Roger, Henry, 
Robert, and Nicholas, I am at present of opinion that John, 
William, Thomas, Roger, Henry, and Robert, were bro- 
thers of the first Sir Thomas ; (No. 35) and that William 
and Nicholas were younger sons of the first Sir Thomas, and so 
that they were all branches of the same family and not of two 


distinct families of Tideswell and Wormhill, as at first I con- 
ceived ; and that whicli induceth me the rather to believe it is, 
that all those Deeds are continued in the possession of the 
present most worthy heir male of the family, from whence it is 
rational to conclude that their descendants successively who died 
without issue male, their lands and deeds devolved upon the 
heirs male of the principal stock. 

No. 36. However disputable it may be whether John or Wil- 
liam, Roger, Henry, and Robert, were brothers or sons of the first 
Sir Thomas Foljambe, yet, considering the time of their living, 
and other circumstances, I think it is past controversy that Wil- 
liam and Nicholas were younger sons of the said Sir Thomas, and 
probably Henry also. 

Therefore, before I treat of Sir Thomas Foljambe, eldest son of 
the first Sir Thomas, 1 shall treat of the younger sons of the first 
Sir Thomas, and begin with William son of Sir Thomas Fol- 

This is exactly proved by the following Deed, wherein 

No. 37. Mr. John Daniel, son of Richard Daniel, gives to 
John Martin, son of Hugh Martin, lands in Tideswell. Testibus 
Dno Tho. Foljambe; Will, his brother; also, Hugh and Will. 
Martin ; Hen. Foljambe, son of Roger; Hen. Foljambe, son o 
Thos. ; Will, son of Roger. 

In this Deed may be observed, that Mr. John Daniel, the do- 
nor in several of the preceeding Deeds, is styled son of Richard 
Daniel, and only son and heir of Sir Richard Daniel, so that 
it must not seem strange if sometimes we find Thomas son 
of Thomas Foljambe only, when the father was a knight. 
Secondly, it is doubtful who this Henry, son of Thomas, was, 
being placed in order betwixt Henry and William Foljambe, 
sons of Roger Foljambe, so that either he must be son of Thomas 
son of Roger, or of Thomas Foljambe the first or second, though 
his father be not styled a knight. So that I shall suspend die de- 
termination, till I find further clearing of the matter. 

However, as to William Foljambe, I conceive this William 
Foljambe to be the brother of the second Sir Thomas, as is 
to be understood in the Deeds whereto William Foljambe is a 

That he lived in 26 th Edw. 1. and was called Richard 
of Wormhill, appears by the Deed, No. 34, in the life of 
Sir Thomas the second, and hath there the precedence of Ni- 


cholas Foljambe, who I suppose was his uncle, and this Richard 
the eldest son of William, brother to the second Sir Thomas. 

No. 38. Also he was of VVormhiil, as appears by the following 
Deed, wherein John, son of William Martin of Tideswell, gives 
to Richard le Archer of Great Hocklow, lands in W^ormhill : the 
witnesses are Sir Thomas Foljambe, Sir Richard Daniel, Sir 
Richard Foljambe of Wormhill, which can be no other but 
Richard, son of William Foljambe, brother to the second Sir 


I find this Nicholas lived In the 26th Edw. I. as will appear by 
his being a witness to a Deed of that date in the time of Sir 
Thomas Foljambe, the third of that name, as in the Deed from 
Robert, son of Elias de Bradwell and Alice his wife, to Sir 
Thomas Foljambe. Deed, No. 43, also Deed, No. 30. 

No. 39. The 13th of Edw. II. I find he held on the day of 
his death, of the King, one messuage and 30 acres of land by the 
Serjeanty of keeping the King's Forest de Campana in the Peak 
per corpus suum, with bows and arrows, and that Robert his 
son and heir was 23 years old. 

No. 40. The 14t'h of Edw. 11. I find that Robert, son and 
heir of Nicholas Foljambe, held lands in Wormhill by the same 

No. 41. Also the 1 5th of Edw. II. the same Robert did his 
homage the 4th day of June that year. 

Having thus with no small trouble arranged out of the heaps of 
the oldest miscellany Deeds of the anomalous branches of the 
family, by much revolving in my mind several schemes before I 
could reduce such confused Deeds into any competent order to 
please myself, in the hopes of having ranged the series right, all 
which I submit to the judgment of such as may clear the matter 
better, or at least to such as may find other deeds to rectify any 
mistakes, I shall now proceed in the history of Sir Thomas 
l'\)ljambe. Bailiff' of the High Peak, eldest son of Sir Thomas 


No. 42. One of the first Deeds which proves the succession 
is from Richard de Hereford, who gives to Thomas, son of Thomas 
Foljambe, lands in Tidtesweil. I'estibus D)^" Rad. de Eccleshall, 


the same whose son Robert married Cecilia, daughter of the first 
Sir Thomas, as appears by the fine in Edw. I. and in the first 
year of his reign, in a Deed, No. 8, The rest of the witnesses 
are Rich, le Ragged, Thos. le Archer, Wm. Foljambe, who was 
brother of this Sir Thomas. 

That he lived in the 16th of Edw. I. appears by the following 
short note in Mr. Dodsworth's collection, wherein he relates that 
Thomas Foljambe, son of Thomas Foljambe, held WormhilL 
(Pipe Roll 16 Edw. I.) Here, because it is not specified what 
particular lands he held in Wormhill, it is to be supposed that 
he held the most or a very considerable part of the town, espe- 
cially seeing this is a record in the Pipe Roll, which takes no 
notice of owners of small members of villages, but principally of 
manors or large portions of them. 

Concernins his marriage I shall relate hereafter in Deed 
No. 42, upon which Deed I shall make some remarks of its anti- 
quity, and other matters. 

That he was a knight, and had lands given or purchased by him 
in Tideswell, will appear in the two following Deeds collated the 
one with the other. 

No. 43. 'J'he first Deed is from John Daniel, son of Sir Rich- 
ard Danyel, whereby he gives to John, son of Hugh Martyn, 
lands in Tideswell. Testibus, Tho. Foljambe, Ada de Herthill, 
militib. ; Tho. son of Roger Foljambe; Hen. and Wm. his bro- 

No. 44. I find also the same John Danyel gives to Sir Thomas 
Foljambe himself all his lands in Tideswell. Testibus, Ada de 
Herthill ; Rob. Bozon ; Will. Foljambe. 

Here also this William Foljambe is to be understood brother 
of this Sir Thomas, and that he and his son and heir Richard, 
held lands in Wormhill, is plain by several Deeds before and here- 
after specified. 

No. 45. That his wife's name was Catherine appears by the 
following Deed, wherein Thomas Foljambe, son of Thomas Fol- 
jambe, with consent of Catherine his wife, gives to Thomas Fol- 
jambe, son of John Foljambe, lands in Wormhill. Testibus D"o 
Will, de Morteyn ; Gervasio de Bernake, milit. ; Joh. Danyel ; 
Thos. son of Roger Foljambe ; Hen. and Will, brothers. 

By this sole Deed it appears that Thomas, son of John 
Foljambe, was cotemporary with the second Sir Thon)as, which 
farther illustrates that John was not the common ancestor and 


father of Sir Thomas, the Bailiff of the High Peak, as I formerly 
judged, but rather a brother of that Sir Thomas, as I am from 
this and some other Deeds induced to believe ; otherwise it must 
be concluded that this gift must be from some other Sir Thomas, 
son of a Thomas, which could be none of all the Thomas's be- 
fore-mentioned, unless it were a son of Thomas son of Roger, 
which is not likely when that Thomas, son of Roger, is a witness 
to this very Deed.** 


But here recurs a greater difficulty concerning the death of the 
second Sir Thomas Foljambe, as will appear by the following 
Deed, whereby 

No. 46. Robert son of Elyas de Brad well and Alice his wife, 
give to Sir Thomas Foljambe of Tideswell, son and heir of Sir 
Thomas Foljambe, lis. rents in Tideswell. Testib. Rich, son of 
Will. Foljambe de Wormhill, Nich. Foljambe, Ralph Cotteral. 
Dat. 26 Edw. I. 

No. 47. The reason why I doubt whether the second Sir Tho- 
mas was now living is, because, though it is usual to style the son 
of any person son and heir, either for a year or two after the death 
of his father, or where such a son conveys any estate as heir to his 
father, but it is a rare thing to style such a son, son and heir 
to his father who was dead eleven years before, as Sir Thomas 
the first was, which inclines me to believe that the second Sir 
Thomas was about this time dead, and so his son, being a knight 
also, was now styled son and heir of Sir Thomas. 

Besides, in the Deed succeeding, No. 44, he is only styled Sir 
Thomas, and when this thii'd Sir Thomas died, his son, being not 
knighted, is styled Thomas Foljambe, son and heir of Sir Thomas, 
as in Deeds Nos. 46, 47, will appear. 

Secondly, by this Deed it seems to me clear that Richard 
Foljambe was son and heir to William Foljambe, brother to the 
second Sir Thomas, and so had the precedence of Nicholas, a 
younger son of the first Sir Thomas. 

No. 48. That he lived the 29th of Edw. the First appears by 

* Here concludes the transcript in the possession of the Rev. Mr. Hunter, whicli 
has hitherto been followed, and which in p. 91 was erroneously stated to have been 
copied from the Gough MS. The remaining portion is printed from the Gough copy, 
furnished by the kindness of the Rev. Dr. Bandinel. 


the following Deeds, wherein Richard, son of John Danyell, 
releases to Thomas Foljambe, Knt. all his right in a certain 
place, late belonging to Thomas, betwixt the lands of the said 
Thomas and the manor of John, son of John Pekit. Testib. 
D°o Rich. Herthill, D^o Rog. de Radburne, — Richard, son of 
William Foljambe of Wormhill. Dated 29 Edw. I. 

No. 49. That he also lived the 15th of Edw. the Second, 
appears by the following Deed, wherein John, son of William 
Martyn of Tideswell, gives to Richard le Archer, of Great 
Hocklow, lands in Tideswell. Testib. The. Foljambe, milit. ; 
Rich. Danyel, milit.; Rich. Foljambe of Wormhill; dated 15 
Edw. II. and that he was dead within two years after, will ap- 
pear by the first Deed I shall insert to the life of Thomas his 
son, No. 50. 


No. 50. To prove this I shall produce the following Inqui- 
sition in Mr. Dodsworth's Collections, (KK. 132, 17 Edw. II.) 
wherein it is certified that Thomas, son and heir of Thomas 
Foljambe, knt. held in Wormhill 15 acres of land by the service 
of finding a footman, with bow and arrows, in the Forest of the 
Peak, to keep it cum arcu et sagittis in Forres ta de Pecco ad 
ipsius custodiam. 

By this Thomas being styled son and heir of Thomas, I con- 
clude his father was then dead, as before noted upon the death of 
this second Sir Thomas for the same reason, and before I gave 
an account why sometimes the son is styled son of Thomas or 
Richard, &c. without the addition of being a knt. though his 
father was so. 

In the 1st Edw. III. also I find this Thomas, son of Thomas, 
in the following Deed, wherein John son of John Martyn, of 
Tideswell, gives to John son of Thomas Foljambe, a mess, in 
Tideswell. Test. Thomas Foljambe, son of Thomas Foljambe, 
Had. de Wardeslow. Dated 1327, 1 Edw. III. 

This John, son of Thomas Foljambe, to whom this deed was 
made, was the eldest son of this Thomas Foljambe, as will more 
fully appear hereafter. 


John Foljambe, son of Thomas Foljambe, lived 4 Edw. III. 
as appears by the following Deed, wherein, (No. 52) William, 


son of William Peronell of Tideswell, gives to John, son of 
Thomas Foljambe of Tideswell, a mess. &c. in Tideswell. Test. 
John Martyn, Had. de Wardeslow. Dated 14 Edw. III. 

No. 53. The 21st Edw, III. he is a witness to the charter of 
John, son of Ralph le Marken of Grendo, wherein he gives to 
Ralph his son lands in Tideswell. 

No. 54. The 34di Edw. III. Simon de Langham, Abbat of 
Westminster, Treasurer of England, constitutes this John Fol- 
jambe of Tideswell collector of the tenths and fifteenths granted 
to the King in the Wapentake of the High Peak. 

Of this John it is recorded that multa bona fecit in fabrica- 
tione Ecctie de Tideswell. He lived to a great age, for in some 
Deeds I find he was alive the 50th of Edw. III. 


Before I proceed to declare the issue of this John Foljambe, 
I must interpose an account of Thomas Foljambe, brother to this 
John, who I suppose was a younger son of Sir Thomas. 

No. 55. I suppose this Thomas was witness by the name of 
Thomas Foljambe, son of Thomas Foljambe, to the Deed of 
John, son of John Martyn of Tideswell, whereby he gives to 
John Foljambe of Tideswell, lands in T*ideswell, 1 Edw. III. as 
is specified before in the life of Sir Thomas, No. 47. 

No 56. This Thomas married Elena, — which Elena, relict 
of the said Thomas Foljambe, was married to Robert de Stave- 
leigh, as appears by this following Deed, whereby John Fol- 
jambe of Tideswell passes all the lands which he has setlled upon 
John, son of this Thomas, as will appear below, in reversion 
after the death of Helen, relict of Thomas Foljambe, as in carta 
No. 57, 41st of Edw. III. hereafter specified. 

No. 57. Also the 44th of Edw. III. Robert Staveleigh and 
Elena his wife leave to John Foljambe of Tideswell, lands in 
Tideswell, Elton, and Litton, which Elen held in dower of the 
gift of Thomas Foljambe her husband. 


No. 58. This Thomas had issue John, who was styled of 
Elton. I find that this John, and Thomas his brother, were 
wards to Henry Duke of Lancaster, 39 Edw. III. and Sir God- 
frey Foljambe was his guardian. This Sir Godfrey Foljambe 


%vas eldest son of Thomas Foljambe, grandfather of this John by 
his second wife, and so was uncle to this John ; and this John 
and Thomas leave to Richard Bon of Elton, a messuasre belonf- 
ing to this John. 

No. 59. The 41st Edw. III. he was married, as appears by 
the following Deed, whereby John Foljambe of Tideswell, uncle 
to this John, gives to him, as son of Thomas Foljambe, of Elton, 
and Johanna his wife, daughter of Anchier Fretchevil of Stave- 
ley, com. Derb. ancestor to the late Lord Fretchevil, all lands, 
&c. in Tideswell, which he had of the gift of Thomas, son of 
Sir Thomas Foljambe, to the use of John and Johanna his wife, 
and the heirs of their bodies, and for default of such issue to the 
heirs of the aforesaid John, son of Thomas; and to the aforesaid 
Deed Sir Godfrey Foljambe is witness. 


No. 60. In the 41st Edw. III. John Foljambe of Tideswell 
passes the reversion of the same lands to the sons of John and 
Johanna, after the death of Elena, relict of Thomas Foljambe. 

I suppose this John died without issue, for I have not found 
any mention of his children. 


No. 61. I presume that Hugh Foljambe was brother of John 
and Thomas Foljambe, sons of Sir Thomas Foljambe, beino- that 
J find him stiled of Elton in the following certificate, wherein 
Hugh Foljambe of Elton, near Baukwell, had a daughter named 
Johanna, who testifyeth that in the 10th year of her age she en- 
tered the house of Nuns of Sewall, and before public notary 
testifieth that she did it without compulsion. 

This is dated 1369, the 44th Edw. HI. 


No. 62. I shall now proceed to give an account of the .sons 
of John Foljambe of Tideswell, eldest son of Sir Thomas Fol- 
jambe of Tideswell, and how the lands were intailcd on them, 
and for want of their issue upon Sir Godfrey Foljambe, wjio 
was the eldest son by tlie second wife of the said Sir Thomas, 
though some pedigree makes him the son of John. 


The first Intail, as to the time which I have yet found, is dated 
the 23d of Edw. III. as special provision for Thomas, son of 
John Foljambe of Tideswell, though that doth not necessarily 
imply that he was eldest brother of Roger, as will further appear 
in the intail on the 45th of Edw. III. 

No. 63. In the first intail, the 23rd of Edw. III. John Steed, 
chapleyn, gives to John Foljambe of Tideswell two mess, and 
several parcells of lands in Tideswell, to be held by the said 
John Foljambe for life, and then to Thomas, son of John, and 
the heirs of his body, and if he dies without issue, then to Roger, 
brother of Thomas, and if he dies without issue, then to Agnes, 
sister to Roger, and if she die without issue then to Joan, sister 
to Agnes. Dated on the Feast of the Holy Trinity, the 23rd of 
Edw. III. 

No. 64. The second intail bears date 45 Edw. III. whereby 
Thomas Castleton, Vicar of Wirksworth, William del Hogh, 
and John Eyre, chaplains, give to John Foljambe of Tideswell 
one mess, and seventy acres of land, which were of Thomas, 
brother of the said John, and twenty-four acres of land in Longs- 
den, which were Thomas Ellysses, and the reversion of the lands 
and rents and half the mill called Over Mill, which Ellena, which 
was the wife of Thomas Foljambe, held for life in Wormhill, 
Lytton, and Tideswell, and the reversion of lands in Burton, 
near Baukwell, which Godfrey Foljambe held for term of life, of 
the gift of Sir Thomas Foljambe his father [all which reversions 
were to come to those chapleyns by the gift of John Foljambe, 
43 Edw. III. to which Thomas le Archer, of Highlow, and John 
le Archer are witnesses] : whereupon these chapleyns, &c. settle 
those lands upon John Foljambe of Tideswell, for life, and after 
his decease, upon Roger Foljambe, son of the said John, and his 
heirs male, and if he dies without heirs male, then to Thomas 
brother of the said Roger and his heirs male, and if Thomas die 
without issue heirs male, then to remain to Sir Godfrey Foljambe 
and his heirs male. Then to come to the right heirs of John 
Foljambe of Tideswell. 

By this special intail it plainly appears that Roger and Tho- 
mas were the sons of John Foljambe, son of Sir Thomas, and 
that Sir Godfrey was son also of Sir Thomas. But by the rever- 
sional intail upon the heirs male of the said Sir Godfrey and his 
heirs male, coming only upon default of the heirs male of Roger 
and Thomas, sons of John, it appears that Sir Godfrey was the 


son of Sir Thomas by a second marriage, which will further ap- 
pear when I treat of Sir Godfrey, who by virtue of this intail 
came to be heir of the family, by the death of the descendants 
of the heirs of Roger, and also of Thomas, his brother, without 


No. 65. I shall therefore now treat of Roger Foljambe and 
his descendants, as eldest son of John Foljambe of Tideswell, son 
and heir of Sir Thomas. 

No. 66. Because I find not that Thomas his brother left any 
issue, male at least ; neither have I found any thing considerable 
of him besides this following Deed, whereby John, son of Robert 
Cattin, releaseth to Thomas, son of John Foljambe of Tideswell, 
his right in lands in Tideswell. Dat. 40 Edw. III. 1 shall dis- 
course no further of him at present. 

Having thus dispatched what I find of Thomas Foljambe, son 
of John and brother of Roger, I proceed to treat of Roger and his 

No. 67. The 7th of Ric. II. Roger Foljambe gives to Henry, 
Alexander, John, sons of William Redman of Tideswell, and John, 
son of William le Smith of Wormhill, Chapleyn, one mess, and 
nine acres of land in Abney. Test. John le Archer of High- 

Also, the same year, Cecilia, late wife of Thomas Boythorp, in 
her widowhood gives to Roger Foljambe all her right in Abney, 
which was Robert le Archer's her father. In anno 1392, 16 
and 17 Ric. II. I find Roger Foljambe held a place called Skelat. 


Edward Foljambe appears to be son and heir of the last Roger. 

No. 68. The 3rd of Hen. V. I find a fine betwixt Sir Phillip 
Leake, Knt. and William Pyrton, Clerk, Querents, and Edward 
Foljambe, Esq. Defendant, of the manors of Elton and Tides- 
well, and 400 acres of land, and 40 acres of meadow, &c. in 
Wormhill, Lytton, Burton, and Abney. 

This fine seems to be passed to empower this Edward Fol- 
jambe, who was knighted shortly after, to settle a jointure upon 
Cecilia his wife, daughter of the said Sir Phillip Leake [which 
Sir Phillip was ancestor to the present Earl of Scarsdale]. 


That he was knight the 3rd Hen. VI. appears by the following 
Deed indented, wherein is recited, 

No. 69. That, whereas Dame Joan Countess of Kent, Lady 
Wake, in the time of Hen. V. has leased to Sir Edward Foijambe 
and John Cokefield the manor of Chesterfield, the said Sir Ed- 
ward grants to Robert Whittington the government and custody 
of the same. 

No. 70. In the 3rd Hen. VI. the aforesaid W^illiani Pyrton, 
Clerk, Quer. in the fine before mentioned, gives to Edward Foi- 
jambe the manor of Tideswell, Sic. as in the aforesaid fine, and 
so settles this upon Sir Edward and his heirs male, and for default 
of such heirs male, to the heirs male of Sir Godfrey Foijambe, 
and if he died without heirs male, to remain to the heirs of a John 
Foijambe, brother of Sir Godfrey. 

That this Sir Edward Foijambe died before 26th Hen. VI. 
and that Dame Cecilia his relict, was then married to a second 
husband, and that Roger Foijambe was son and heir of the said 
Sir Edward and his Lady Cecilia, will clearly appear by the fol- 
lowing conveyance : 

No. 71. Whereby John Woodburne, Esq. and Dame Cecilia 
his wife, and Roger Foijambe, son of the said Lady Cecilia, lease 
to James Draughtgate the manor of Elton for ten years. Dated 
26th Henry VI. 


No. 72. This Roger, son and heir of Sir Edward, married 
Godith, the daughter of John Statham, Esq. as appears by the 
following settlement made the aforesaid 26th Hen. VI. (No. 73.) 
whereby Hugh Willoughby, Knt. and John Cokfield, Esq. give 
to Roger Foijambe, son and heir of Sir Edward Foijambe, lands 
in Tideswell, which were the lands of Thomas Foijambe, brother 
of John Foijambe, and lands in Lytton and Hocklow which were 
Thomas Ellys's, and half of the Over Mill, which Ellen, which 
was the wife of Thomas Foijambe, held ; and lands in Burton, 
near Baukwell, [which Godfrey Foijambe formerly held,] to the 
said Roger, son of Sir Edward Foijambe, and his heirs male. 
And if he died without heirs male, then to Thomas Foijambe, 
brother of Roger. And if he die without heirs male, then to 
the heirs male of Sir Godfrey Foijambe. And if all die without 
heirs male, then to the right heirs of John Foijambe. Dated the 
26th of Hen. VI. 


No. 74. But it seems that both this Roger and his brother 
Thomas died this year without issue male, for I find the same 
year, that John Sacheverill, Esq., Robert Tickhill, Esq., John, 
Francis, and William Norton, give to Godith Statham, daughter 
of John Statham, a mess, in Tideswell and other lands, which 
they held of the feofment of Roger Foljambe, son and heir of Sir 
Edward Foljambe, which was intailed to the said Roger and his 
heirs male, and for want of such issue to Thomas Foljambe of 
Walton [this Thomas was son of Godfrey Foljambe, knt. whose 
other progeny dying without issue male, was heir male to the 
family, which will appear hereafter]. And if the said Thomas 
Foljambe of Walton die without issue, then to the heirs of the 
aforesaid Roger Foljambe. 

No. 75. I find that Godith, the relict of this Roger, lived 
the 8th of King Edw. IV. the 5th of May, and then received 
from Henry Foljambe of Walton nine marks of her rents in 

And the same year John Griffith and John Statham demise to 
her by the name of Godith Foljambe, relict of Roger Foljambe, 
Esq. the manor of Tideswell and lands in Hocklow, Wormhill, 
Abney, Longsden, and Burton, com. Derb. 8 Edw. IV.

(From an original Roll in the collection of Edward Lloyd, Esq. 
1832, now in possession of Richard Heher, Esq.) 

As there is no County History of Shropshire, a Roll like the present 
is of great value in supplying information as to the possessors of manors 
and estates in the county in the thirteenth century. It has also this 
additional value, that it forms a Supplement to the Testa de Neville, for 
it contains similar information, but is about seventy years later. Al- 
though the Roll is written in a hand of the fifteenth century, yet it was 
certainly compiled before 21st Edw. I. as appears l)y the Inquis. post 
mort. of John fitz Acri of that year, for he is stated here to be li\ing 


and holding the two Whlthefords, one of John le Strange, the other of 
Richard fitz Alan. There are numerous inaccuracies in the writing of 
this Roll, most of which are indicated where they occur. P.

These Pedigrees are contained in a thin folio volume of 32 pages, 
preserved amongst the Rawlinson collection in the Bodleian Library, 
No. 116. They are neatly written in a hand of about Queen Elizabeth's 
reign, and have an index prefixed, which obviates the partial inconve- 
nience of their not being disposed in chronological order. The volume 
formerly belonged to Richard St. George, whose arms are on the covers, 
and afterwards to W. Whiston. B. B. 

Only a few of the records are noticed in the Placitorum Abbreviatio, 
fol. 1 8 11 J but several that do not occur there, have been already pub- 
lished by County Historians, and are therefore omitted.

ford, the antient Legiolium, not far from Pontefract. The most 
considerable of the towns which have arisen upon its banks is 
Wakefield, which had a church and an extensive soke in the 
Saxon times. Five or six miles higher on the stream, on its 
northern bank, and at about an equal distance from its source and 
fall, stand the church and town of Dewsbury. 

This place has a peculiar claim upon public attention, arising 
out of this circumstance, that it is pointed out by a tradition sup- 
ported by some concurrent probabilities, and even by something 
which aspires to the character if not of contemporary yet of very 
early documentary evidence, as having been a scene of the labours 
of one of those apostolic men who, following in the train of Au- 
gustine, were the means of reviving the almost extinguished light 
of British Christianity. The tradition is in substance this : That 
Paulinus, the Northumbrian Apostle, in the course of his mission 
among the subjects of King Edwin, visited this place, and that on 
the low and level ground near the river on which now the church 
is built, he presented the claims of Christian truth to the inhabit- 
ants of these regions, and performed in the Calder the initiatory 
rite of Baptism. 

The main support of this tradition is an inscription on a cross 
in the church-yard : 


These words may now be read ; but as the existing cross is con- 
fessedly modern, no such cross or inscription being to be seen 
here even a century ago, they are rather to be regarded as some- 
thing which has grown out of the tradition, than as affording 
any support to the tradition. But on the other hand there is evi- 
dence well deserviu"; our regard, that there was a cross at Dews- 


bury bearing this inscription at a more remote period, the erec- 
tion of which may be referred to early times ; not early enough 
indeed to raise it into the rank of contemporary evidence, but 
sufficiently early to carry us back into a period when the invention 
of such a fact was not likely to have taken place, and when even 
some faint recollection may be supposed to have remained among 
the villagery, of the visit made to their forefathers by the Chris- 
tian apostle. 

None of the Antiquaries and Topographers, professedly and 
peculiarly of Yorkshire, whose collections have come down to us, 
seem, however, to have seen this cross : not even Dodsworth, who 
has done so much, and whose notes were made before the civil 
wars. Johnston speaks of it only from tradition : and Thoresby, 
who was at Dewsbury in 1691, "very inquisitive for the stone, 
could not so much as hear of any that had seen it :" and he pro- 
ceeds to say that " Mr. Pierson an antient minister, a native here, 
whose father was the minister here for thirty years, told me that 
neither of them could find any thing of it." ^ Of the more gene- 
ral inquirers into the antiquities of the British nation, Leland has 
not any notice of this cross : and, in short, Camden is the only 
early English Antiquary who has mentioned it, and all subse- 
quent notices are little if any thing more than repetitions of the 
little which he has related concerning it. 

Camden was in Yorkshire in 1582:^ and no doubt in these 
parts, where at Bradley, a few miles higher on the Calder, resided 
the family of Savile, with several learned members of wliich family 
he was intimately acquainted. But Camden does not profess to 
have seen the cross. He speaks of it rather as of a thing which 
had been : and we can hardly believe that his is more than a tra- 
ditionary testimony, collected from the people of the neighbour- 
hood, and especially from the information of the Saviles, wiiose 
assistance in the preparation of the Britannia he gratefully ac- 

Camden, however, was not a man likely to speak of such a cross 
and such an inscription, if he had not what appeared to him suf- 
ficient reason to believe that a cross bearing ihat inscription had 
existed at Dewsbury ; and he lived at no distant period from the 
Reformation, the time when so much of the ancient sculpture 
and painting of England, and so much of our historical testimony, 

" Di,iry, &c. vol. i. p. 207. ^ Epistolw Camdeni, Addenda, p. 85, 


1 am happy, however, in benig able to corroboi'ate the testi- 
mony of Camden by an authority contemporary with his, which, 
however humble in other respects it may be regai'ded, is entitled 
on this point to great weight. It is a piece of doggrel verse 
written at the very beginning of the seventeenth century, " In 
praise of Dewsbury." The author was Mr. Thomas Tingle, a 
minister here ; and Johnston, in whose manuscripts I found the 
only copy I have ever seen or heard of, took it down about 1670 
from the mouth of the Parish-clerk, the only person who could 
then repeat it: 

In Church-yard once a Cross did stand 

Of Apostles pictured there; 
And had engraven thereupon, 

"Paulinus preached here." 

This testimony is independent of the testimony of Camden, 
and it is plain and express to the fact of the existence of the 
Cross. We have also the additional circumstance, that it was not 
a mere Cross, like the present, in which we have an imitation of 
the wheel-cross of the Saxons, but one about which were sculp- 
tured figures of the Apostles. 

This circumstance opens a further view on this curious subject. 
In the years 1766 and 1767, in digging about the church, various 
pieces of Saxon sculpture were discovered, which are now heaped 
together in a sort of pile in the garden of the Vicarage-house. 
Some of these are represented in engravings in the Loidis and 
Elmete of Dr. Whitaker. One of the figures in the plate en- 
titled "Sculptured Stones from the Saxon Church of Dewsbury," 
is plainly our Saviour, and some of the others have the appear- 
ance of being Apostles ; there are also faint traces of a Saxon 
inscription ; so that on the whole there is a strong probability 
that we have in these remains portions of the Cross, demolished 
as it may be presumed at the Reformation, when such things 
were declared to be superstitious, a time when, as it has been 
eloquently said, " men seem to have conspired to abolish the 
memory of the things that had been, and to begin the affairs 
of the human species afresh." 

If these sculptures can be received as genuine fragments of the 
Cross, they are evidences that it was a work of very high anti- 
quity. If it be thought to be too bold an assumption that they 
are fragments of the Cross, this must at least be allowed, that 
they are decisive evidences of the existence upon this spot, of 



something devoted to Christian purposes, at a very remote period. 
In the latter case it will be allowed that they afford some sup- 
port to the tradition : in the former they go far to show that the 
Cross was erected not by the Norman family to whom the patron- 
age of Dewsbury fell after the Conquest, nor by the religious 
house to whom that family conveyed it, but by the Saxon inha- 
bitants of Dew'sbury, and those, persons living in the earlier 
Saxon times. Dr. Whitaker observes that their high antiquity 
is proved not merely by the style of the workmanship, but by a 
circumstance which marks a barbarous age, — that the eyes of the 
figures are made of some white extraneous substance : to which 
he also adds, as concurrent to the same point, that the genuine 
Saxon N for S may be traced among the characters which re- 

Such then is the evidence which we possess to the existence of 
the Cross and its celebrated inscription, and to the people by 
whom it was erected. I proceed to observe that what we know 
of the labours of Paulinus is favourable to the tradition. 

He was employed from A.D. 626 to A.D. 633, the year of the 
death of King Edwin, in the conversion of the Northumbrians. 
Beside what he did at York and in the Court of King Edwin, 
Bede informs us that he spent thirty-six days at Adregin in Ber- 
nicia ; but that Deira rather than Bernicia, was the scene of his 
labours, because there the King for the most part resided : and 
that in Deira, he baptized many in the river Swale near Catte- 
rick, and founded a church at Campodonum, which is indisputably 
Doncaster.'J He then penetrated into Lindsey and Nottingham- 
shire ; built a church of stone at what is now supposed to be 
Lincoln ; and performed for many the rite of baptism in the 
Trent, near the city called by Bede Tiouulfingacaster. Deda, 
a friend of Bede, was one of these whom Paulinus here baptized. 
He well remembered the holy man by whom he was thus intro- 
duced into the Christian Church, and gave to Bede that minute 
and extremely interesting description of the person and manner 
of Paulinus, which he has delivered down to us in his history. 

I cannot find that Bede contains more on what we may call the 
rural labours of Paulinus ; and it is manifest that this is but an 

* Loidis and Elmete, p. 301. 

* IMay I, after all tliat lias been written on this great question in the topogrtphical 
history of Yorkshire, hint at the possibility of the " Villa Regia " of King Edwin having 
been Coi)ingsboiough ? 


imperfect account of what so zealous a votary would do when 
he had the King's permission to make every exertion to reclaim 
his subjects from idolatry, and was supported by the example 
and authority of the Court. While we peruse the pages of Bede 
we must be deeply sensible of the value of such a trustworthy 
historian. But we cannot but regret that he has not been more 
particular, and enabled us to trace in the labours of the primitive 
apostle of Northumbria, the origin of more of the Northumbrian 
churches. VVe see, however, in what he has related, that it was 
the practice of Paulinus to perform his multitudinous baptisms in 
the running streams ; and few places would be more favourable 
to this purpose than the flat meadows of Dewsbury. 

One of tlie most curious parts of Bede's account of the labours 
of Paulinus, is that in which he speaks of the conversion of Edwin 
himself and of Coiffi, who appears to have been the arch-priest of 
the antient superstition. One of the first efforts of these persons, 
filled with the zeal of new converts, was directed against the tem- 
ple of Godmundham, which must have been a central point of 
that superstition. They broke into the sacred inclosure ; violated 
the sanctuary ; and soon a Christian Church arose upon the 

Here then we see the zeal of Paulinus and his converts directed 
against a place which was sacred in the eyes of the Saxon popu- 
lation, and a Church arising where before had been an idol-tem- 
ple. What is similar to this occurred elsewhere. On the site of 
Saint Paul's have been found the horns of deer, which are sup- 
posed to mark it as a place in which sacrifices were wont to be 
made. A Christian Church arose close to the Circle at Abury : 
and close to the Temple of Minerva at Bath, arose buildings 
erected for the purpose of Christian devotion. Out of these facts 
I raise another probability for the early preaching of Christianity 
at Dewsbury : for Dewsbury may, as it seems to me, be con- 
nected, like Godmundham, with the ancient superstitions of 

The Roman, or Romano-British relics which have lately been 
discovered there, and of which it is to be regretted that fuller and 
more exact accounts have not been given to the world, shew it 
to have been at least a seat of population before the time of Pau- 
linus. But it is upon the probable etymology of the name that 
I propose to found this part of the argument. What is this syl- 
lable Dew (in Domesday, the oldest known instance of it, Deu) 


which in the name is coupled with hnrij ? The hu7'y o^ Deu; not 
surely a common Saxon appellative, as by a skilful master in this 
obscure science has been somewhat hastily conjectured. 

Again we must resort to Camden. At Greetland, a little 
higher on the stream than Dewsbury, an altar was dug up, in- 
scribed Dvi CI BRIG. In the time of Camden it was preserved at 
Bradley. Horsley, following him at the distance of nearly a cen- 
tury and a half, found this very altar in the church of Conington. 
He has given the inscription exactly as it appears, in his plate, 
Yorkshire, xviii. and has no hesitation in reading the inscription 
thus : — To the Dui of the state of the Brigantes, Titus Aurelius 

Whether dvi be generic or specific, whether it is any kind of 
obumbration of the sacred word Deus, or the name of some local 
divinity, like Andates, Bellotucader, or the Sul of the banks of 
the Avon, is not material to the use which I would make of this 
inscription. It proves, that in the vale of the Calder an altar 
was erected to a divinity known by the name Dvi : and it opens 
a strong probability that Dewsbury is in fact the hury of this Z)?«', 
the place peculiarly consecrated to the worship of him, and that 
it might be on that account peculiarly selected by the Christian 
Aposde as the scene of his labours. 

The commemoration of such an event as the preaching of Pau- 
linus by the erection of a cross, may be regarded as so much in 
the natural course of events, as to require no support from pa- 
rallel instances. But we may observe, since the fact has been 
already connected with this inquiry, that the Saxon Crosses at 
Whalley, on the Lancashire side of the mountains, were regarded 
ages ago as having been erected to commemorate the first preach- 
ing of Christianity in that neighbourhood by Augustine or some 
of his followers. 

We may add in the last place, that there was beyond all ques- 
tion a Christian Church at Dewsbury in the Saxon times. This 
we learn from Domesday Book, a decisive record of the fact, but 
leaving wholly uncertain the period at which it was erected. 

We must not, however, pass over in this place the important 
circumstance, that six of the neighbouring churches render a por- 
tion of their profits to the church at Dewsbury. These, and the 
sum rendered, are thus returned in the Valor of King Henry the 
Eighth :

These payments, not however in the form of money, as they now 
appear, but as portions of tithe or altarage, are declared in the 
instrument of Ordination of a Vicarage in 1349, to have been ex 
antiquo belonging to the Church. And upon this has been raised 
an argument that the lands which now compose the six parishes 
did anciently render their whole tithe to the Church of Dewsbury. 
A right which the Church of Dewsbury had to tithe from a part 
of the parish of Halifax, has also been construed into proof that 
the whole of that extensive parish is to be regarded as having 
originally been subject to the Church of Dewsbury. On different 
evidence the parish of Mirfield is assumed to have been carved out 
of the original parish of Dewsbury : and the worthy minister, 
who two centuries ago chaunted the praise of Dewsbury, speaks 
of a long-lost render of three-pence from the Church of Wake- 
field, as a proof that the Church of Wakefield owned the Church 
of Dewsbury in the light of her mother. So that, on the whole, it 
lias been contended that the Church of Dewsbury is in fact the 
mother church for the whole of the Vale of the Calder, and the 
wide extent of high land reaching to the county division in the 
summits of the mountains, bounded on the north by Craven and 
the wapentake of Skyrack, and on the south by the northern 
boundary of the Staincross wapentake. 

This is a very startling position. But if no more is meant by 
it than that there was a church at Dewsbury long before any 
church had been erected on the lands which foj-m the western 
parishes, then it would seem that it nmst be admitted as a truth. 
But if it is contended that the Church of Dewsbury could ever 
have claimed the entire tithe throughout those parishes, and 
that the lands which now compose them were gradually severed 
from the parish of Dewsbury as churches arose, then I denun*. I 
ask for better proof than it is, I am persuaded, possible to pro- 
duce; and I deny that the money payments, calleil prescriptive, 
can be received as any sufficient proof of this starding position. 
Those payments, in the form in which they now appear, came into 


existence between 1349 and 1530. What they were before, we 
may perhaps be able to disclose. 

The earliest view which we possess of the distribution of pro- 
perty in this portion of the kinj^dom is in Domesday Book, where 
we find that large portions of tlie wapentakes of Agbrigg and 
Morley were royal demesne, and a still larger portion in the 
hands of various Saxon proprietors. The lands not royal demesne 
were given in mass to llbert de Laci, and formed, with other 
lands in Skyrack, Staincross, and Osgodcross, the honour of Pon- 
tefract. But the lands which were royal demesne remained in 
the Crown at the time of the Great Survey. Not long after, how- 
ever, they also were granted out in mass, and the person to whom 
the grant was made was William de Warren, who had married 
Gundred, a daughter of the Conqueror. This William had be- 
fore acquired the lands of Coningsborough which had belonged to 
King Harold. 

Thus the whole of the country of which we are speaking, was 
divided between the two fees of the Lacis and the W^arrens. 
Wakefield and Dewsbury were both on the royal demesne, and 
both accordingly passed to the \\'arrens. 

None of the six churches which now render a portion of their 
profit to the Church of Dewsbury existed at the time of the 
Domesday Survey, except Thornhill, which may fairly be deemed 
to have then been of recent foundation. Neither indeed was there 
any church at Mirfield or at Halifax. The erection of these 
churches, then, was a work long subsequent to the foundation of 
the Church of Dewsbury. The Churches of Bradford, Halifax, 
Mirfield, Almondbury, Heton, Thornhill, and Huddersfield, 
were erected on lands which belonged not to the Warren but 
the Laci fee. The Church of Burton only was raised on lands 
which were given to the Warrens. 

But in the formation of the parishes to belong to those 
churches, lands were assigned which belonged to the fee of War- 
ren ; and my hypothesis respecting the origin of the payments 
now made to the Church of Dewsbury is, that they are compo- 
sitions for tithe arising in portions of the Warren fee, which were 
assigned as parcel of the parishes annexed to churches founded 
on the Laci lands ; whence it would follow that the true character 
of the Church of Dewsbury at the time of the Conquest was 
this, — that it was the Church of the Royal demesne in this part 
of the County of York. 


The inequality of the payments from the six churches, is of itself 
a presumptive proof that these payments were not originally 
in token of filial subjection. Thus Burton pays four pounds, 
while Bradford, a parish at least equally extensive, pays only 
eight shillings. But the fact is, that the Church of Burton was 
raised upon the Warren lands, while the Church of Bradford 
was erected on the Laci lands, and of the townships assigned to 
it, only one, Eccleshill, was originally royal demesne. But I 
now proceed to bring to bear upon this question a piece of evi- 
dence of which no use has heretofore by any one been made, 
namely, the Accompts of one Edward Savage, who was Proctor 
of the Church of Dewsbury from 1348 to 1356, of which the 
originals on skins are now before me. These show distinctly 1st, 
that there were at that time no money payments at all issuing out 
of the six churches ; and 2d, that the Church of Dewsbury did 
receive tithe from certain townships which go to compose those 

From Burton indeed, in conformity with what I heretofore 
said of the Church havinof been founded on lands belonjiincr to 
the Warrens and not the Lacis, the Church of Dewsbury received 
what is described as a portion of the Church ; and the average 
receipts from the Church for the eight years amounted to 
5/. 9s. lO^d. The other townships, and the average receipts, 
stand thus : 

Dalton, in the parish of Heton 

Eccleshill, in the parish of Bradford 



Holme, V in the parish of Almondbury 5 4 



Quernby, -. 

„ , /» in the parish of Huddersfield 2 7 

Golcar, | * 













\ in the parish of Thonihill . . 9 2i 

These were the places from which the Church of Dewsbury 
received profits during the time that Savage was the Collector, 
not from the whole parish in any case ; and without being able 
to show of every one of these places that they were lands of the 


Warren fee attached to churches of the foundation of the Lacis 
or their subinfeudatories, I submit that this is the most probable 
supposition on which the fact can be explained. 

We further find in these accounts from what portion of the 
lands which compose the parish of Halifax the Church of Dews- 
bury received tithe. It was from Hipperholm, Rastrick, Brig- 
house, Toothill, and Fixby ; precisely those portions of the parish 
which in their civil relations pertained to the Warrens. The 
average receipts by sale of the tithe was 9/. 14s. Id. 

There is a difficulty in accounting for the Church of Halifax 
having escaped the imposition of a pension to the Church of 
Dewsbury, when, at what time soever it was, the six churches 
made what appears to have been a commutation. There is also 
a difficulty in respect of the Church of Mirfield which must once 
have belonged to Dewsbury, and yet, neither in the time of Sa- 
vage nor since, does it appear that Dewsbury had any pecuniary 
advantages from it. The Church of Mirfield was founded vmder 
very peculiar circumstances, the particulars of which may be seen 
in the Loidis and Elmete : and as it was only a single township 
that was assigned to it» the Church of Dewsbury might unreluc- 
tantly forego every claim, on the interposition of even papal au- 
thority, and the reasonable plea of personal danger to the inha- 
bitants of Mirfield in resorting to the morning mass of their more 
ancient parish church. 

What, after all the separations from it, constitutes now the 
parish of Dewsbury, and did so in the time of Savage, is the fol- 
lowing : 


Hartshead, where is a chapel founded 
in the first century after the Conquest. 





The gross value of the tithes in the time of Savage was about 
281. per annum. 

Accompts of the receipts and expenditure of the Proctor of a 
country church in the middle of the fourteenth century not being 
of very frequent occurrence, I shall make a few further extracts 
from those of DeAvsbu)y : 















A rent of assize of divers tenants was received, amounting 
annually to 5/. 7*. ; but in 1351 there was a six-pence added for 
a tenement, formerly a chapel. 

A fulling-mill produced 13^. 4-fi?. per ann. 

A water corn-mill usually produced from 3/. to 47. ; but in 
1350 it produced only 21. as no one would take it on account of 
the pestilence. 

A piece of arable at Hartshead produced 13.«. 4c?. 

The Altarage is thus described, in 1349 :

The last entry is the only entry in these accompts which can 
afford the least countenance to the claim set up by the old minis- 
ter of Dewsbury for the superiority of his Church to that of 
"Wakefield. There are in these accompts other entries of sums 
expended in the repair of the mill, grange, &c. 

Hitherto we have said little of the persons in whom the patron- 
age of this rich benefice has been vested. 

As Dewsbury before the Conquest was on the royal demesne, 
we cannot doubt that the Saxon kings were accustomed to name 
the clerk or clerks officiating in this church, and taking the pro- 
fits. After the Conquest, the Church of Dewsbury passed with 
the lands, to the Warrens. But they did not keep it long : for, 
having founded a Cluniac monastery at Lewes in Sussex, among 
the other endowments they gave to it the churches on their York- 
shire lands. The instrument by which this gift was made has 
been often printed. It belongs to the reign of Rufus. 

From that period to the reign of Edward II. the patronage was 
in the house of Lewes ; and we have no notice of any disturbance 
in the possession of it, except that in 1266 John then Earl of 
Warren nominated one William de London to be the rector. 
This was resisted by the Prior, and successfully.^ 

As far as we can collect from Domesday Book there was at 
that time only one presbyter in the Church of Dewsbury. But 
previously to the 15th of Henry HI. the custom was to name two 
clerks, who divided between them the duties and profits of the 
cure : for in that year Archbishop Walter Gray thought proper 
to consolidate the two rectories, one being then void by the death

of John de Dewsbury.f Man} of the larger benefices in York- 
shire had two or more incumbents accordinfj to their original 
constitution ; and the policy of the Archbishop in consolidating so 
many of them, seems at this distance of time of very doubtful ex- 
pediency. From this time to 1319, when the Rector was super- 
seded by a Vicar, the parish had the service of one Rector only. 

The last Rectors were John de Dewsbury and Odo de Rich- 
mond. These appear under the denomination of Personse de 
Dewsbury in a charier of the year 1225 seen by Johnston. It is 
a grant to Henry de Savile, their parishioner, of the chantry of 
his chapel of Gulhlaker (Golcar) which is situated in his court 
(curia) there, within the limits of our parish, saving the rights of 
their church : 12(1. to be paid by the said Henry and his heirs at 
the feast of All Saints, at Dewsbury, in token of subjection. The 
Dean of York to have full power to settle all questions arising 
concerning the said chapel, without further strife, and without 
appeal. There is something peculiar in such a grant as this 
being made by the Rectors, without, as far as appears, papal or 
archiepiscopal authority. 

The Monastery of Lewes derived a pension of 4/. out of the 
profits of the benefice. 

In 1325, the connection of this remote monastery with the 
Church of Dewsbury terminated. On July 26th in that year, by 
deed executed in chapter of the house, the Prior and Convent of 
Lewes grant to Hugh le Despenser, son of Hugh Earl of Win- 
chester, and to Eleanor his wife, the advowsons of tiie Churches 
of Dewsbury and Wakefield, for life, with remainder to Gilbert 
their son: which grant was confirmed by the King on 11th Au- 
gust following. The record is on the Patent Rolls of 19 Edw. II, 

This was probably one of the rapacious acts of the Spensers, 
and yielded to by the monks to preserve something better. But 
the fall of the Spensers was near at hand. In the October fol- 
lowing the elder Spenser suffered death at Bristol. The death 
of the younger Spenser soon followed. Of Gilbert little is known : 
and it is uncertain whether the remainder in the grant took effect 
in his favour. However, the nomination to the two rectories of 
Dewsbury and Wakefield came into the hands of the King, early 
in the reign of Edward III. 

By that King both these rectories were made part of the en-

dowment on the Dean and College of the Free Chapel Royal of 
Saint Stephen in the King's Palace of Westminster : and now it 
was that for the first time the Church of Dewsbury, as was also 
the Church of Wakefield, became appropriated, and was hence- 
forth to be served by a deputy. 

The King gave the Church to the Chapel of Saint Stephen, 
with the intention that it should be taken in proprios usus by the 
Dean and College. This fact we learn from the instrument of 
appropriation in the Consistory Court of York, which, though 
illegible in a few places, is yet sufficiently entire to leave no room 
for doubt as to any part of its meaning. It is in the usual form 
of a letter from William (Zouch) Archbishop of York to the 
Dean and College, and after reciting that the work is good to 
promote divine worship, and that a petition has been presented 
from the Dean and College, setting forth that the endowments of 
their Chapel are small and insufficient, and that the King their 
founder has given them the advowson of the Church of Dews- 
bury, with a view that it should be appropriated to them for their 
better support — in pursuance of the pious intention of the King, 
8cc. the Archbishop, with consent of the Chapter, appropriates 
the Church of Dewsbury to them. Sir John de Maydensone, now 
the Rector, yielding up possession. A Vicar is to be appointed 
to have the cure of souls by the Dean and College : and the Arch- 
bishop and the Dean and Chapter of Yoi'k are to be prayed for by 
the Dean and College. Furthermore, in recompence of the in- 
jury done to the Church of York, and in sign of the subjection of 
the Church of Dewsbury, there is reserved out of the profits an 
annual sum of 60 shillings ; to wit, 40 shillings to the Archbishop 
and 20 to the Dean and Chapter. This instrument was executed 
at the Archbishop's manor of Ripon, on the last day of Novem- 
ber, 1348. 

It remained now to settle the terms on which a Vicar was to 
be appointed to discharge the duties heretofore performed by the 
Rector. This was an affair between the College and the Arch- 
bishop. I'he arrangement was finally completed, and the Ordi- 
nation, as it is called, of a Vicarage perfected by an instrument 
which bears date at Ripon, 20 Jun. 1349. 

By this instrument the portion of the Vicar was declared to 
consist in these things : 

A competent manse, to consist of a hall, two chambers at the 


least, a kitchen, stable, frranary, and a house for cattle, to be 
built at the expense of the College ; with a suitable garden and 
close, as near as conveniently may be to the church. 

The Oblations at the Feasts Principal, and at other times of 
the year, both in the parish church and at the chapel of Harts- 

All Mortuaries, quick and dead. 

The Quadragesimal tithes, as of line, hemp, eggs, calves, lambs, 
colts, pigs, bees, wax, honey, geese, poultry, pigeons; whether 
they are accounted for in kind or by money ; of fruit and herb- 
age ; of the hay of gardens and crofts throughout the whole parish ; 
of any mills, as well now already built as to be built ; and all ob- 
ventions and minute tithes in whatsoever thing they consist, to the 
said church and chapel belonging. Also lithe of wool when it 
ought to be paid in money not in the fleece. 

The tithe of lambs, calves, pigs, geese, and poultry, and all 
lesser tithes and obventions whatsoever; mortuaries, dead and quick, 
(tithes of wool only excepted,) which, under the name of altar- 
age, has been from ancient times wont to be paid to the Church 
of Dewsbury in the parishes of Bradford, Heton, Almondbury, 
Huddersfield, Burton, and Thornhill. 

All the Peter pence, and the pennies for the consecrated bread, 
wont to be paid by the parishioners. 

Oblations at spousals, purifications of women, baptisms of 
children, and wax provided at the interment and exequies of tlie 
dead (ac ceram pervenientem in sepulturis et exequiis mor- 

Such was the ample provision made for the Vicar, in the as- 
signment of which, when we compare it with what was set apart 
for the Vicars in other northern parishes, we may seem to perceive 
that regard was had to the ancient honoui's of the church. Still 
there was enough remaining to the impropriators to make the 
Rectory of Dewsbury no mean addition to the revenues of even a 
royal college. It is declared in the instrument of the ordination 
to consist in the things following : 

All lands, meadows, rents, farms, perquisites of court, and all 
tithe of garb and hay (except tithe of the hay of gardens and 
crofts assigned to the Vicar) and of wool throughout the whole 
parish, except tithe of wool when it is paid in money which be- 
longs to the Vicar. Also the tithes and portions of the garb of 



Eccleshill, Halifax, Dalton, Huddersfleld, Almondbury, (viz. in 
Lockwood,) Burton, and Flockton, due to the said Church of 
Dewsbury, and of ancient time wont to be paid. Also tithes of 
herbage of woods and parks, sylvae ceduse, iron-mines, and coal 
within the parish or places wherein the church is entitled to 
tithe : but of these tithes last mentioned, whenever they are ga- 
thered, the tithe of the tithe is to be given to the Vicar. 

The burthens which fell upon the Vicar are declared to be 
these followinof : 

Procurations, Synodals, and Peter-pence. 

He shall find a chaplain in the Church of Dewsbury, and an- 
other in the Chapel of Hartshead ; and also other ministers mi- 
nistering in divine things in the same, as the Rector had been 
wont to do, at his own expence. 

Lights and lamps in the church and chapel. 

Bread and wine for the celebration of divine service in both. 

The oblations distributed in the church and chapel at Easter. 

"Cancellos vero earundem EcclesijB et Capellae," It stands thus 
in an office copy of the Ordination ; but I confess the meaning is 
to me obscure, unless it is the reparation of the chancels at Dews- 
bury and Hartshead. 

Books and vestments to be repaired, with the washing of the 

The Dean and College are to build anew the chancels of the 
said church and chapel, and to provide anew the books and vest- 
ments for both. But by this it is not meant to be declared that 
the Dean and College are to be burthened with finding such 
books and vestments as by the parishioners ought and are accus- 
tomed to be found, nor the Vicar with the reparation of them. 
The Dean and College are also to pay Procurations of Cardinals, 
Legates, and Nuncios of the Apostolic See when called for. 

All other burthens, ordinary and extraordinary, to rest on the 

Ordinations are seldom found so full of minute particulars 
as this. 

Li the partition of the profits of the benefice, by far the larger 
moiety was taken by the College : for in the return made in the 
time of Henry VHI. the College returned their share of the pro- 
fits of this church at 50/. ; while the Vicar's return was as follows :

The method of proceeding when a church was to be appropri- 
ated, is a part of our Ecclesiastical Antiquities which has received 
little illusti-ation. Some light may, however, be now thrown 
upon it, from those accompts of Savage, the Proctor of the church, 
to which we have before referred, and from which I shall here 
extract the entries relating to the appropriation of this church.

The expenses of the Dean of Pontefract and the Vicar of

to Ripon at one time for 2 days and 2 nights, and at another, 
T) days and 5 nights, about prosecuting the said business, and 
the making a Vicarage . . . . . . 12 5 

We see that the whole business was conducted with great deli- 
beration and care, under the eye of the Dean of that Deanery in 
which Dewsbury was situated, who summoned for the purpose a 
jury of clerks; and again (for what reason another Dean was 
chosen does not appear,) under the eye of the Dean of Doncaster, 
the next adjacent Deanery, who summons a jury of parishioners : 
the Deans in both instances being assisted by the Vicars of the 
towns from whence the Deaneries had their denominations. 

At the Reformation, the College of Saint Stephen was dis- 
solved ; and the presentation of the Vicar which had belonged to 
it came into possession of the Crown, and the Vicar has ever since 
been presented by the King. 

The College appears to have been accustomed to grant leases 
of their Rectories in Yorkshire. The two Rectories of Dews- 
bury and Wakefield were held on lease in 1568 by Henry Savile 
of Lupset, near Wakefield, who was one of the council of the 
North, and Sheriff of Yorkshire in the tenth of Elizabeth. This 
Henry Savile sprung from a younger branch of Savile of Thorn- 
hill, and was the ancestor of the later Saviles of that place, his 
posterity succeeding to Edward Savile the long-lived and ineffi- 
cient son of Sir Elenry. In his will, dated 1 January 1568,. 
Henry Savile leaves his lease of the Rectories of Dewsbury and 
Wakefield to his wife Dorothy for life, with remainder to his son 
Francis Savile. 

Johnston says that the Rectory of Dewsbury was purchased by 
Dame Elizabeth Savile, widow of Sir George Savile of Thornhill, 
Bart, eldest son of Henry, and by her settled upon her younger 
son. Sir John Savile, who was seated at Lupset, from whom they 
descended to his son Thomas Savile, the last Savile of Lupset. 

Thomas Savile sold the impropriation of Dewsbury to John 
Peebles, who was Clerk of the Peace, and also one of the Gentle- 
men of the Privy Chamber in ordinary to King Charles II. He 


came to reside at Dewsbury, where he built a fine house, with a 
bowhng-green and walks, which attracted at the time much ad- 
mii-ation, and was perhaps one of the first instances of ornamen- 
tal grounds in the north. His pedigree was entered at the Visi- 
tation of Yorkshire, 1666, in which it appears that his grandfather 
{son to a Bishop in Scotland) was Chaplain to King James, 
whom he accompanied to England, and his father a clergyman. 
Rector of Wold-Newton. He himself married the heiress of the 
Franks of Alwoodley, an ancient esquire's family. Mr. Peebles 
died in 1684, leaving three daughters, Elizabeth, married to Jo- 
seph Richardson of the flimily at North-Bierley, Ann, and Mary 
wife of Bartin AUott, Esq. of Bilham-Grange. 

In the church are several monumental inscriptions of the 
family of Peebles. There also lies Henry Tilson, Bishop of El- 
phin, in Ireland, who fled to England in the time of the troubles 
in the seventeenth century. Reference may be made to the 
Loidis and Elmete of Dr. Whitaker, for the monumental inscrip- 
tions, and for other particulars respecting the fabric of the church. 
To that work also we refer for the catalogue of the Vicars before 
and since the Reformation. 

Only one chantry appears to have been founded in this 
church. It was that of John Sothill, and alms of five shillings 
were distributed annually by the Chaplain out of his income of 
61. which arose from lands at Dewsbury, Ossett, and Batley. 
This is probably the Sothill whose ancient and remarkable grave- 
stone is among the old stones preserved in the vicai'age garden. 
They were the only family of consequence which arose in the 
parish, having their name from Sothill, a member of the parish. 
The heiress married a Savile of Thornhill, a f^imily with whom 
we for ever meet in enquiries into the early history of the lands 
which compose the Wapentakes of Morley and Agbi-igg. 

The old priest who chaunted in strains better we may believe 
than they appear as taken down from the mouth of the parish 
clerk by Johnston, does not forget to speak of the " sweet bells " 
of Dewsbury, England's sweetest melody. One of them is 
known by the name of Black Tom of Sothill, and the tradition 
is, that it was an expiatory gift for a murder. One of the bells, 
whether it is this I do not know, is tolled at Christmas Eve as at 
a funeral, or in the manner of a passing-bell ; and any one 
asking whose bell it was? would be told that it was the Devil's 
Knell. The moral of it is that the Devil died when Christ was 


born. The custom was discontinued for some years ; but at 
Christmas 1828, it was revived, by order of the Vicar. 

The feast is on Saint James' Day ; in which it is just possible 
that there may be an allusion to James the assistant of Paulinus, 
who was left by him to watch over the interests of Christianity in 
the North, when he returned into Kent with the widow of King 
Edwin ; but we may observe that the payment of the Saviles for 
their chapel at Golcar, was to be made on the feast of All-Saints, 
and we may commonly find the churches of Saxon foundation 
not assigned to any particular Saint, owing, it is supposed, to the 
difficulty in those times of obtaining relics.

Seton, in Rutlandshire, was the residence of a family of Sheffield, the 
first of whom was William Sheffield, who settled there on marrying 
Isabella, the daughter and co-heir of Rowland de St. Liz, in 1409, 10 
Hen. IV. He was Knight of the Shire that year ; and was father of 
William, who was also Knight of the Shire in 1480, 8 Hen. V. (See 
AVright's Rutland, fol. 1 684.) 

I have obtained the following extracts concerning this family from the 
Parish Register, which commences in 1561 : 

1562. Margareta Sheffeld sepulta erat decimo quarto Junii. 

1563. Will'mus ShefFekl baptizatus erat vicessimo qiiinto

Edward, Kenelm, Anthony, and John, are on record in the pedigree 
of the Rutland Visitation of 1618, as having all died s. p. being the 
youngest sons of George Sheffield, of Setou, co, Rutland, by his wife 
Elizabeth Harrison, daughter of Robert Harrison of Stow, co. North- 
ampton, Esq. by his wife Elizabeth Fitz-Geffry of co. Beds. See Visi- 
tation of Northamptonshire in Heralds' College, Anno 1619.

On a search through the Institutions from 1600 to 1/00 to the Rec- 
tory of Seton in the Registry of the diocese of Peterborough, most 
courteously made for me by the present learned and orthodox Prelate 
(Herbert Marsh), I have ascertained that " the first institution on record 
after IGOO was in 1627 on the 17th of May, when the Rev. John 
[Josias] Beacham was instituted on the presentation of John Dryden, 
Esq. How long Mr. Beacham retained the rectory and who was his 
successor docs not [thence] appear." He was de jure Rector for forty- 
seven years, till Oct. 2, 1674. Of this person we can add a few notices 
from the information of the present worthy Rector of Seton, the Rev. 
Hugh Monckton, who observes : — "Josias Beacham, or Beachamp as 
he sometimes spelled, as appears from the Register was instituted to the 
Rectory of Seton 1627, vice Will. Hornbie, or Hornbye, deceased ; and 
married same year Maria Sheffeld, by whom he had Maria 1 633. His wife 
died Nov. 1634, on occasion of whose illness he seems to have become 
non-resident from June in that year till December 1637, when he re- 
turned with a second wife, by whom he had a large family. During 
this supposed non-residence his daughter Maria probably died in some 
other place ; for, though her burial does not appear in the Register, the 
baptism of another daughter of the same name is found Nov. 4, 1649. 
He appears to have been ejected by the Puritans Nov. 1653. March 1 
of the year following, the Puritan Registrar, A\'illiam Palmer, records, 
rather disrespectfully, ' Eliz. Beachamp buryed,' without describing her 
relation to the lawful Rector. Now Elizabeth was the name of his eldest 
daughter by the second wife, probably therefore the name of the wife. 
If this were the burial of the latter, his ejectment and his second widow- 


liood must have taken place within a few months, and, as she had borne 
him a child the year before, his affliction, with a young family, must 
have pressed heavily upon him. It is gratifying to see him restored 
September 1G02, and writing a fine steady hand on the 2nd October 
] 674, on the 20th of which month he was buried. 

"During the eventful period of the grand rebellion no appointment 
was recorded in the Registry, nor even after the Restoration was any 
institution recorded before the 14th of November 1674, when the Rev. 
Edmund Sheaphard was instituted on the presentation of John Meere, 
Gent, who was Patron for that turn only. On the 1 7th of November 
] 682 the Rev. Edward Camocke was instituted on the presentation of 
Edward Cony, Esq. who was again Patron for that turn only. On the 
29th of March 1686 the Rev. William Peake was instituted on the pre- 
sentation of Charles Tryon, Esq. in whose family the patronage remained 
above a hundred years, till it was purchased by Colonel Monckton, to 
whose heir the patronage now belongs." 

To this we may add, that Sampson Sheffield of Navestock, co. Essex, 
by will in the registry of the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, 34 Brent, 
dated June 22, 1648, administration granted 18 IMay 16.53, was seised 
of the next presentation to Seton. His words are: — "And whereas 
the next presentation of the parsonage of Seaton in Rutlandshire is in 
my power to dispose of, my will is, that if my Executors can find out 
any honest Godly man who will buy the same, and if they conceive it 
lawful to sell the same, that they shall have power to do so, and that 
the money arising upon the sale thereof shall go towards the payment of 
the legacies herein bequeathed." It would appear that John Meere 
obtained Sheffield's presentation, and presented as his clerk Edmund 
Sheaphard in 1674, on the death of Beachamp, and that such presenta- 
tion did not take place till upwards of twenty years after the Testator's 
death. S. H. C. 



In the printed Calendar of the Charter-Rolls, under 17 Hon. III. it 
is said that " Diversce Charlie" were then granted to Ralph Fitz- 
Nicholas, concerning feodal privileges in sundry manors in the Counties

In the Parliament held at Westminster on Monday next after the 
Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross (Sept. 17, 13;M) a Subsidy 
was granted to the King on account of the expenses caused by the war 
with Scotland ; the Barons and Knights of Shires giving hiui a fifteenth, 
as the Citizens and Burgesses did a tenth. The writ addressed to the 
Abbat of Cerne for collecting this aid in the county of Dorset, is printed 
in the Appendix to the Rolls of Parliament, vol. ii. ]). 44. 

In all probability the original Rolls of this and all other Subsidies 
remain in the Exchequer ; but none have ever yet been printed, with 
the exception of the ninth levied 14 Edw. III. under the title of " No- 
nurum Inquisitiones hi Curia Scaccarii." 

The present copy of the taxation in Haniiishire in 8 Edw. III. will be 
found of service to the topographer, from atVording a knowledge of the 
value of the respective jjarislics and hamlets as then assessed. F. M.

qui in nomine Patris, & Filii, et Spiritus Sancti in Sancta Ecclesia 
regiminis gubernacula hactenus tenuerunt, quique suos adjutores 
sancta3que ecclesiaifundatores sua nobis industria suorumque scrip- 
torum longa traditione cognitos reddiderunt, admoneri videmur, 
ut ea quae a contemporaneis nostris in sanctae matris EcclesiiE 
exaltatione facta sunt, presentibus per nos manifestentur, poste- 
risque dinoscenda nobis scribentibus reserventur. Nos igitur ma- 
jorum imitantes exempla, jam quaedam pietatis opera referamus 
quae in Anglica terra gesta sunt a Comite Rogerio anno ab In- 
carnatione Domini 1087, regnante potentissimo Rege Willelmo, 
atque in Archiep'atu Cantuar' pontificante Lanfranco. Volumus 
vero ut religiosi atque fideles Christiani cognoscant quia iccirco 
nobis ista describere placuit, ut qui ea relegerint vel audierint 
Deum supplicabiliori affectu pro sanctae Ecclesiae fundatorum 
salute implorent, et ut presentes ad regna celestia tendentes etiam 
inter bujus aetatis primates quos sequantur inveniant. Igitur ad 
gloriam summae et individual Trinitatis atque incompreliensibilis 
Divinitatis jam proferamus qua3 nos dicere spopondimus. 

Rogerius Comes atque Adelaisa Comitissa devotioni religiosa; 
pia mente subditi piissimaque Dei visitationeinspirati, in quadam 
Ecclesia qua? constructa est in honore SS. Apostolor. Petri et 
Pauli in suburbio Salopesberie civitatis, Monaclios religiose vi- 
ventes posuerunt, concedente Rege Willelmo, qui Deum assidue 
exorarent tam proutilitate anima3 Regis Will'mi atque Mathildis 
Reglnae Regisque Eduuardi, quam pro animarum suarum salute, 
et pro anima Comitissce Mabilios, et omnium antecessorum here- 
dumque suorum qui anteeos ip^um honorem recto possederunt vel 
possessuri sunt. Hanc etiam S. Petri et Pauli Ecclesiam supra- 
dictus Comes Rogerius et Adelaisa Comitiss;i dv. suis propriis 
facultatibus, quia parvula crat nee habilalioni nK)nachoruui con- 


grua, majorem cupientes efficere, cum magna devotione incepe- 
runt, sed morte Comitis interveniente imperfectam reliquerunt. 
In hac etiam ecclesia ea quae infra continentur tam pro animarum 
suarum quam pro omnium Christianorum salute donaverunt per- 
petuoque concesserunt. Primo scilicet dederunt ei quendam vicum 
qui positus est juxta dictam ecclesiam, cum tribus molendinis 
cunctisque redditibus quae ad eum pertinere noscuntur. Hie autem 
vicus dividitur a Civitate Salopesberia solo alveo fluminis inter- 
currentis cui nomen est Saverna; Vicus autem Biforieta voca- 
tur, quod lingua Gallorum " ante portam " dicitur. Addiderunt 
etiam supradictis donis quasdam Ecclesias cum omnibus perti- 
nentibusad eas tam in terra quam in hominibus, universisque aliis 
possessionibus quas hie nominatim annotare commodum duxi- 
mus, scilicet, Ecclesiam S'ci Gregorii, Ecclesiamque de Stotes- 
dona, et illam de Dodeleberia, illamque de Conendovre, et eam 
de Walintona, et illam de Eadmundona, et villam de Archalou, 
et eam de Hodenet, et illam de Toenga, et eam de Donnitona, 
et illam de llecordina, illam etiam de Bascerce et illam de Nessa. 
Et super haec omnia concessit ut milites atque primates sui, qui- 
cunque in elemosinam conferre vellent huic ecclesiee aliquam par- 
tem terrarum suarum, non qusesita licentia a Comite vel ab aliquo 
alio, libera mente donarent ex eo tempore, liberrimi ab omni 
servicio ejusdem datae terrae in perpetuum. Monachi vero eandem 
libertatem suscipientes si quandoque de his vel aliis suis rebus co- 
gerentur geldum communem dare, quod nunquam contingeret, nisi 
Comes de dominio suo daret, geldum tamen militum nunquam 
ullo modo darent. Quod omnibus audientibus valde placuit, to- 
taque sua curia laudando Deoque gratias referendo confirmavit. 
Addiderunt etiam Comes et Comitissa his supradictis donis quas- 
dam villas quarum nomina hie habentur ; Haitonam scilicet et 
Alministram et Burtonam, et cum his omnibus concesserunt etiam 
tributum, quod redditur de lignis quae in civitatem afFeruntur per 
portam qua^ ad orientem aperitur. Teste Godebaldo et Oilerio 
sacerdotibus, Herberto Grammatico, Warino Vicecomite, Ro- 
berto filio Thebaldi, Rogerio filio Corbeth, multisque nobilibus 
atque popularibus qui haec audierunt et concesserunt. Locus 
autem ille in quo supradicta ecclesia fundata est fuit de 
hereditate cujusdam Militis cui nomen Seuuardus. Et quia 
Comes Rogerius in hereditate illius, eo invito, ecclesiam fun- 
dare noluit, dedit ei quandam villam nomine Languafectam, ut 
ipse cum bona voluntate in predicto loco sibi ecclesiam fundare 


concederet, ejusdemque elemosina3 idem Seuuardus particeps ex- 
isteret. Postea autem memoratus Seuuardus illani eandem vil- 
lain, quam Comes ei dederat, Ecclesiae S. P. et P. post mortem 
suam concessit, fr'nitatemque ejusdem loci recepit. Teste Gode- 
baldo, et Ricardo de Belmesio, et Ricardo de Monte Uuarult. 
Post ista autem supradicta dona quidam milites istius provincial 
eidem loco pro animarum suarum salute de suis possessionibus 
contulerunt, scilicet Warinus Vicecomes duas hidus terrae in 
villa quae dicitur Tugafort et decimam Obtonae quam et semper 
eadem Ecclesia habuerat a tempore Regis Eaduuardi ; Ecclesi- 
amque Beritone cum decima ipsius manerii. Rainadus (sic) 
vero frater ejus unam hidam quae vocatur Lega. Alherius au- 
tem Eadburtonam. Rogerius de Laceio, Manafordam. Haec 
omnia concessit atque firmavit venerabilis Comes Rogerius ; tes- 
tibus filiis ejus et cum patre firmantibus Hugone et Rogerio, 
Arnulfo, cum Baronibus plurimis. Rainaldus, qui, post mortem 
predicti Warini, uxorem illius cum ejus honore suscepit, et Hugo 
filius ejusdem Warini dederunt huic Ecclesiae S. Petri Ecclesiam 
S'ci Oswaldi et illam de Muthla, et decimas de Nessa et de Sera- 
ordina ; concedente Hugone Comite et testimonium perhibente 
cum pluribus aliis. Gerardus de Tornai dedit unam Villam quae 
dicitur Bectona ; cujus successor Hamo Peverel, qui ejus honorem 
post eum cum filia optinuit, rogatu ejusdem bene-morigeratae

tam ab omni geldo vel aliis consuetudinibus. 

Helgotus dedit quandam («c) juxta Savernam, quae, pro silvula 
quae adjacet, Mora vocatur, et piscariam in eodem flumine. 
Cujus filius Herbertus et successor in hereditatem attribuit quan- 
dam villam nomine Nortonam, et Ecclesiam de Stantona cum 
omnibus decimis suis et omnium militum suorum, et cum om- 
nibus quae ad eandem ecclesiam pertinent.

ipsius manerii et decimam de JoclehuUe dedit Rogerius filius 
Corbet. Et decimam de Cireberia dedit Gislebertus de Salner-

et ab omnibus ad eum pertinentibus, excepto geldo Regis, libera 
et quieta condonavit. Testibus, Ricardo Lundoniensi Episcopo, 
Hamone Peverello, Rogerio filio Corbet, cum omni fere comi- 

Post obitum autem Rogerii venerabilis Comitis, Plugo filius 
ejus digna proles tanti Patris qui post eum successit in honorem, 
quadam die dum staret ante sepulturam sui patris, divina in- 
spiratus gratia motusque pietate paterna, convocavit dominum 
Fulcheredum primum hujus loci Abbatem, coram multis 
baronibus suis resolutus in lacrimas dixit : " Pacem et quietem 
volo esse in hoc loco, et ideo constituo banc abbatiam et omnia 
ad eam pertinentia ab omni consuetudine hujus terrae quam ego 
possum condonare esse liberam in perpetuum et pacatam et quie- 
tam. Et hoc sciant omnes mei fideles quia nichil retineo in 
honore SS. Apostolorum Petri et Pauli nisi orationes et bene- 
ficium monachorum in hoc loco manentium, et tam liberum hunc 
honorem hodie constituo ut nullus sit qui post me aliquid liber- 
tatis vel quietis possit adderc ; hoc tantum retineo quod si Ab- 
bas hujus loci superbia inflatus nollet faccre rectum vicinis suis, 


ego vel heres mens post me ad rectum eum constringerem facien- 
dum. Et si falsus monetarius de alia terra adventicius in terra 
S'ci Petri captus fuerit, corpus cum pecunia reddatur Comiti. 
Si autem ftilsarius de terra S'ci Petri fuerit, solummodo corpus 
reddatur Comiti, pecunia autem erit Abbatis. De latronibus 
autem justiciam sibi concedo et pccuniam, si Abbas per se vel 
per suos ipsam justiciam facere voluerit ; sin autem, corpus tan- 
tummodo reddatur Comiti, ct pecunia erit Abbatis ; boc tantum 
modo retineo et nicbil aliud. Decimam vero venationis mea; tocius 
Comitatus Salopesberia^ concedo perpetuo esse in boc loco, prop- 
ter Silvas S'cae Milburga;. Haec autem omnia facio pro anima 
patris et matris nieae et mea et Iratrum meorum et omnium ad 
me pertinentium, et pro anima Regis Willelmi et Mathildis re- 
ginae et filiorum eorum. Siquis autem vel meo tempore vel post 
obitum usque in finem sa?culi aliquid ex his voluerit infringere 
vel auferre vel minuere, anathema sit." Barones vero qui tunc 
aderant presentes, videntes tantam conpunctionem domini sui et 
tantam audientes libertatem honoris hujus Monasterii, pedibus 
ejus provoluti gratias egerunt Deo, et tam piissimae venerabilis 
Comitis voluntati, Arnulfus frater ejusdem Comitis, Kicardus 
de Belmesio qui postea Londonia3 Episcopus factus est, llainaldus 
Vicecomes, Rogerius Corbet et Robertus frater ejus, Hamundus 
Peverel, Eulcoius Vicecomes, et omnes fere hujus comitatus 

Robertus de Belismo, qui post eundem venerabilem Hugonem 
fratrem suum comitatus suscepit honorem, dedit Ecclesia S'ci 
Petri et Monachis ejusdem loci Bascerce, cum omnibus quae ad 
eam villam pertinebant, concedente et sigilli sui auctoritate fir- 
mante piissimo Rege Henrico. Predictus itaque gloriosissimus 
Rex Henricus eandem libertatem pacem et quietem quam sa^pe 
dictus venerabilis Comes Hugo huic ecclesia} sanctorum Aposto- 
lorum Petri et Pauli condonaverat, prompta voluntate et alacri 
animo in perpetuum concessit donavit et proprio sigillo roboravit. 

Comes autem Rogerius qui Pictavensis dicitur, magni Rogerii 
filius, dedit Eccl'iae S. Petri et monachis ejusdem loci piscariam 
de Tareuuella pro anima sua et sme conjugis et pro salute animaj 
patris et matris sua?, et cum ipsa piscaria terrulam quandam 
Ocsitonam et Poltonam, et base de dominio suo. De rebus autem 
Godefridi Vicecomitis sui quas idem Godefridus de eo babcbat 
dedit Ecclesiam de Uualetona et eam de Cherchcam cum quadam 
terra qua? dicitur Gerhstnn, petente codem Godefrido et multis 


precibus exorante, eo quod in Eccl'Ia S. Petri haberet quendam 
filium suum monachum nomine Achardum. Et haec omnia in- 
perpetuo firmavit quieta et libera ab omnium hominum invasione, 
addens quod qui haec disturbaret anathema esset. Teste Rob'to 
Ep'o de Cestra, et Hugone ejusdem Civitatis Comite. 

Quae omnia gloriosus Rex H. cum omnibus supra dictis pro- 
prio sigillo firmavit.

• Weever cites a Cartulary of Feveisham in the Cotton Library. It is not there at 
present. It is said that James, the Librarian to Sir Robert Cotton, took the liberty of 
lending Sir Robert's MSS. to whomsoever he pleased. This is a clue to the cause of 
the loss of those which are not in Smith's Catalogue ; but it appears that some were not 
restored which were lent afterwards by Sir T. Cotton, as may be proved by his book of 
loans in the British Museum. 

' The Kirkhams still possess Finched. Qy. if they have the Cartulary ? 

I Tanner refers to a Cartulary in the Harleian CoUoctiou, 1731, but it is not there now.

Fitz-Herbert.— P. 624, dele all from line 8, col. 1, '' Fitz-

Herbert. — The first mention I have of this name and family 
(vych is both antient and honourable) is in 5 Steph. where it ap- 
pears ff that Herbert^ the common ancestor thereof, was Cham- 
berlain to that King ; and that he and Herbert his son then gave 
CCCliiijl' in silver, for livery of his father's lands. 

By some •' he is sayd to have been naturall son to King Henry 
the First, and called Herbert Fitz-Henry and Herbert Fitz-Roy ; 
but that is not likely ; for plain it is that he had to wife Adela i 
daughter and coheir to S^' Robert Corbet, Kn*. Lord of the Bo- 
rough of Jtlces'tcr, in the county of HDartoicft ; wd' Adela was one 
of the concubines to that King, and on whom he begot ^ a bas- 
tard son, called Reginald, afterwards made Earle of tJTorntoaTl by 
King Stephen, 

As to the parentage therefore of this Herbert, I cannot positively 
affirnie any thing of certainty; but that w^li I findel further memo- 
rable is, that to him and his son Herbert before specified, Thomas 
ArchbPP of F!oihc gave the Lordships of ^Hviunsfjovouofj, (CoHcrtfjorpe, 
J©!itiert{)orpc, ]C?oIj)crtFjoipe, and the two Sottumjf. Also in (3rui-0jjs][eiip,

three ; in .iHfJitict{)orpe five ; in Stlhittftcrjic five ; in (ffropni one ; and 
in «iro{[jum foure. Also in 4E>(ourestfr5()JcE all the lands which Her- 
man and Turhet'dl held by the service of three knight's fees ; and 
that, by this Adela his wife he had issue three '" sons, Herbert, 
Stephen,"^ and WilliamP 

Which William was, first. Treasurer P of the Church of gorfecj 
and Cliaplain to K. Stephen, and afterwards ArchbPP of that Pro- 
vince ; of whom notable mention is made by Godwyn in his cata- 
logue of Bishops, and that for his strict and holy life he was ca- 
nonized for a Saint. Of whom also an old Register ^ of the 
Church of gorfee thus speaketh, Sanctus llDinicitmii?', >iEIior. Archie- 
piscopus,fuitJiliustHvitvti, Wintoniensis,Camerarii et Thesaiirarii 
Henrici Regis ; whereby it seemes that the before mentioned 
Herbert was also Treasurer to K. Henry the First.

To this Herbert succeeded Herbert his sayd son, called ^ Her- 
hertus films Herberti Camerarii (as hath been before observed). 
Which Herbert obtained from K. Henry the Second, a confirma- 
tion s of all the lands w^b Herbert his father held ; as also of the 
office s of Chamberlain; and in ]2 H. II. upon the assessment 
of the Ayde, v/hich was then levyed for marrying the sayd King's 
daughter, certifyed that he held one knight's fee in UDi'(t|5f)ire and 
three in "iSerft^'&iie. In 6 R. I. he underwent the * Shireeve's 
office ^ for the county of ^Btoucej^tcr, for the one half of diat yeare. 
So likewise afterwards ^ during the whole reigne of the King, 
and in 8 Ric. I. Y was also Shireeve of ^\)xti^s\)\xt. 

Upon the conquest of 3Irelanlj, in the time of K, Henry the 
2nd, I find z that, in a great Councill held at <0pfortt a° 1 177 that 
King gave the kingdom of Upmeric, in that realme, to this Herbert, 
and William his brother, Reginald Earle of CorntoaH, and Josce- 
line de la Pomerai their nephew, (the Citty of 'Simeric and one 
Cantred excepted, w^h the King reserved to himself and his 
heirs,) to be held by the service of sixty knight's fees; but that 
they refused ^ that his gift. This was at that time ^ when King 
Henry made his son John King of Irclanb. 

This Herbert tooke to wife ^ Lucie, the third daughter to Milo 
Earle of ](!|crEford, and had ^ with her, in marriage, the Forest of 
JDcne and other lands in 42n0(anl> ; but for some transgression (as 
it is sayd) he gave them back to K. Henry the Second. 

By the consent of which Lucie,^ and Reginald his son, he be- 
stowed f on the monks of iDatacriep (m com. Surr.) all his lands in 
•iScitiiette ; Peter and Matthew, two other of his sons, being wit- 
nesses to the grant. Of which Reginald I finde no other men- 
tion ; for Peter succeeded in the inheritance. 

Which Peter first marryed Alice,S daughter of Robert Fitz- 
Roger (a great Baron in jfiortfeum&erKanb,) and by her had issue l» 
Reginald ; and he two sons John and Adam. 

After which he tooke to his second wife Alice,^ daughter of

H. III. "Otiber Jfttj-RegtnaltJ (a bastard son of K. John) obtained 
a grant * of all the other lands of this Peter, to support himself 
in liis service. But before the end of that yeare, returning " to 
his obedience, the Castle and LoPP of '55l[cnk'Ucn5 and all those 
lands belonging to the Honour of "iSrEcfinocfi whereof he had been

P:vin Fitz-John, a great favourite of Henry I. was in posscssioii 
of this castle when the Welsh took it from him, making cruel 
havock among the tenants." It is reasonable to suppose that 
Roger Corbet or his son iiacl espoused the cause of l{obert do 
Belesme, his patron, against Henry J. and so, upon incurring the 
King's displeasure, forfeited his inh.eritance, which was given to 
the said Pain Fitz-John, It should seem that after this depreda- 
tion of the Welsh, that Pain Fitz-John quitted his pretensions, 
■and that the Corbets were restored to their former interest iii 
these parts ; but, be it as it will, our records of the earliest date 
fix it in that family. 

In 1 Joh. Robert Corbet had a charter for keeping a market 
every week on a Wednesxlay at Coos (Cans), " Cum omnibus 
libertatibus et liberis consuetudinibus ad hujusmodi INIercata 
pertinentibus^ ita tamen quod Mercatum illud non sit ad nocu- 
mentum vi<;inorum Mercatorum."° 

In 2 H. III. t\te King commanded the Earl of Chester to re- 
store to Thomas Corbet, the son of Robert, the Castle of Caos, 
and all other his lands seized in the King's hands upon his acting 
in conjunction with the King's enemies, since that he had sworn 
■allegiance, and done homage as a lawful liege subject ; for it seems 
the seizure had been made upon the father by reason of the son's 

In 30 H. III. the said Thomas Corbet had a grant of free war- 
ren in Cans, Scc.j^l and, about two years after,"" the grant of a 
fair, to be kept on the eve, the day, and the day after the trans*- 
lation of 8t. Thomas the Martyr.^ 

In 33 II. III. a fine was levied between the said Thomas Cor- 
bet, complainant, and Foulk Fitz-W^arin, defendant, " De con- 
suetudinibus et serviciis terrae in Albei-byr 1 feodi militis, et de 
secta ad curiam de Caus, iuveniendo militem ad wardam Castri 
Cans per 40 dies." Peter Coi-bet acknowledged upon record, 
tliat he held the barony of Kaus })er servicium 1 feodi militis, 
which was entered in the Scutage of Wales, oih of Kdward the 
First, and the year following,^ a fine was levied of Caux by the

said Peter, " Qui concessit Roberto Corbet tenementa vocat la 
Haye de Luctone et tenementa Bragynton in Wallia, et quod 
Robertus possit assartare et Petrus et han'edes ejus fugabunt in 
la Haye." 

In 20 £. I. a Quo Warranto was brought for holding Pleas of 
the Crown and Wayffe in this manor. The defendant, Peter 
Corbet, claimed those liberties by prescription, so the Cause was 
adjourned to Lichfield. At the same Assizes a complaint was 
exhibited against the said Peter Corbet by William Passenarulf 
for taking his oxen in their passage through Worthyn, and after 
detaining him as prisoner in the Castle of Caux ; Peter pleads 
that he was Custos or Marescal of the King's army under Roger 
Mortimer, General against the Welsh, and found the said Wil- 
liam returning from the army without leave " cum bobus, ideo 
cepit." William replied, that those oxen fell to his lot as part of 
the booty then taken, " et quia Willielmus cognovit quod Petrus 
cepit boves tempore quo Willielmus habuii de praeda," the 
Justices declared that they had no cognizance of the plea, so it 
was dismissed. u 

In 27 E. I. the said Peter Corbet was found by Inquisition x to 
be one of the next heirs to Roger de Valletort, a great Baron in 
the west of England, and then departed this life, 28 E. I., leaving 
Peter his son and heir,y being thirty years of age; who died with- 
out issue 15 E. II. and left John his brother and heir, twenty- 
four years of age ; who dying without issue, it was found by Inqui- 
sition 21 E. III. that Thomas Corbet, ancestor of Peter Coi'bet, 
had issue Peter and three [two] daughters, viz. Alice, Venice,z and 
Emme, and that Peter the son had issue another Peter, and tliat 
all the heirs male of that line were extinct. It was likewise found 
that Alice, the eldest daughter of Thomas, became the wife of 
Robert de Stafford, who had issue Nicholas his son and heir, and 
Nicholas had issue Edmund, and Edmund had issue Ralph, then 
Lord Stafford, when the inquisition was found; and that Emme, 
the other daughter of Thomas Corbet, married de Bromp- 

ton, who had issue Walter de Brompton her son and heir, who 
was the father of Brian de Brompton, who left Margaret and 
Elizabeth his heirs. Margaret took to husband Robert de Har- 
ley, and Elizabeth, Edmund de Cornwall ; so that the Barony of

Peter Corbet ran into three channels, and by agreement '- the 
coheirs made a partition as follows : '^ Ralph de Stafford gave the 
King, 24 E. III. fifty marks as a relief for the moiety of the 
Barony of Cans, which moiety consisted of the manor of Cans, 
medietas manerii de Worthyn, cum medietate 2 molend'. et 1 
molend'. fulleritici, ac maneriorum de Munsterley, de Nether- 
gorthere in North Wallia, et medietas maner' de Byn Weston." 
The purparty of Robert the son of Robert de Harley and Mar- 
garet his wife was, the manors of Yockelton, Wentnore, Stretton, 
Chelvie, with the moiety of two water-mills, and of one fuller's 
mill, and of the fourth part of the manor of Bin Weston, which 
were the fourth part of the Barony ; so that of course the remain- 
der fell to the share ^ of Edmund de Cornwall and Elizabeth his 
wife, who accordingly paid twenty-five marks relief for their pur- 

In 38 E. III. Robert Harley levied a fine of Yockelton, Shelve, 
Wentnore, and of the fourth part of the forest of Cans, for the 
use of himself and Johanna his wife for their lives, the remainder 
to Foulk, the son of Robert Corbet de Morton, and the heirs of 
his body, the remainder to the right heirs of Johanna.^ But to 
return to the elder brancli, Ralph Lord Stafford died at Tun- 
bridge in Kent, 46 E. III., leaving Hugh his son and heir, the 
father of Thomas, who dying without issue, William his brother 
succeeded, in whose time Roger L'Estrange had the custody of 
the castle and forest of Caux.d He also died without issue, and 
then a younger brother, Edmund Earl of Stafford, succeeded, 
who was afterwards slain at the battle of Shrewsbury, fighting for 
the King, and left Humphrey his son and heir dien an infant. 

In 12 H. IV. Robert Cluelegh, David Holbache, and Roger 
Thornes, had a commission to enquire into all trespasses, con- 
tempts, oppressions, deceits, extortions, maintenance, and waste, 
committed in the territories of Caux, from the time the King was 
possessed, and to certify the same into the Court of Chancery.^ 
Humphrey Earl of Stafford, in die 23 H. VI. was created 
Duke of Buckingham, and 25 H. VI. the Duke of Warwick his 
great competitor for precedency being dead, lie had a grant to

Royal. In 38 H. VI. he had a grant of all the forfeitures of Walter 
Devereux of Weobly, in county of Hereford, Esq. and that 
Walter de Hopton, of the county of Salop, had incurred ; and 
afterwards in that year was killed at the battle of Northampton, 
on the Lancastrian side. 

To him succeeded Henry his grandson (whose father had been 
killed at the battle of Saint Albans) then five years of age. This 
Henry Duke of Buckingham M'as a great instrument of the pro- 
motion of Richard the Third, by whom he was created Constable 
of England, and Constable of all the Castles and Steward of all 
the King's Lordships in the counties of Salop and Hereford ; but 
plotting with Morton, Bishop of Ely, how to effect the union of 
the Houses of Lancaster and York by the marriage of Henry 
Earl ot Richmond (afterwards King Henry the Seventh) with the 
eldest daughter of King Edward the Fourth, the project was dis- 
covered, and he with his friends and adherents fled to arms; but, 
being disappointed in the measures they had concerted, the Duke 
betook himself to the house of Humphrey Bannester, an old ser- 
vant of his, living near Shrewsbury, who, upon die King's Pro- 
clamation promising a thousand pounds reward to any one that 
shoidd apprehend the Duke, betrayed his lord and master to 
John Mytton, Esq. Sheriff of the county, and, in conclusion, he 
was beheaded at Shrewsbury, and left Edward his son and heir, 
who, by tlie contrivances of Cardinal Wolsey, was sentenced to 
death the 13 H. VHL whereupon the King granted to Walter 
Devereux, knight, Lord Ferrers, the office of Steward and Con- 
stable of Caux "et officium Janitoris ac Forestarii de Minsterley 
et Habberlcy, nee non officium Magistri J3eductus Ferarum 
Regis Forestae de Hogstowe et Heth pro termino vitf^e." f Henry 
his eldest son obtained an act of Parliament, 14 H. VHL to re- 
verse the attainder, but not to be restored to his honours, and in 
consequence thereof he enjoyed the possessions of his father, and 
liad issue Edward, the father of Edward who married Isabel the 
daughter of Ti)omas Forester of Tonge, in the county of Salop. 

In 22 Eliz. the Queen pardoned the alienation of the Castle of

after, Bartholomew Turoe, the Governor, was commanded upon 
his allegiance to put the place into the possession of William Earl 
of Salisbury, the King's brother, and Thomas de Erdinton." 
So that the King reserved the disposal of the government of the 
castle, this being a fx-ontier town, and of some importance to the 
Marches, and consequently not to be left entirely in the power 
of the Prince of Wales, who, we may suppose, had only the rents 
and profits arising from the tenants. 

In 4 H. III. Roger L'Estrange yielded up to the King the 
inheritance of the manors of Colmere and Hampton, and received 
in consideration of the same the said manors again, cum Castro 
et Hundredo de Elsmere ad vitam tantum.o 

In 21 H. III. John L'Estrange was Governor of this Castle. 

In 25 H. III. David, son of Lewellin late Prince of Wales, by 
his charter in writing, surrendered up Elsmere and Englefeud to 
the Crown of England.? After that we hear no more of its being 
in the hands of the Welsh. The continual skirmishes between 
the English and W^elsh made the tenure of the latter very uncer- 
tain; and though King Henry the Second and King John, being 
embroiled in foreign wars, gave this town and castle in dower, the 
first with his sister, the other with his natural daughter, in order 
to conciliate the ancient animosities of both people, yet, upon the 
least appearance of a rupture, those Kings might, and actually 
did resume at pleasure, or gave what recompence they thought 
fit upon the seizure, and such as the Princes of Wales holding 
upon their good behaviour were glad to receive.

L'Estrange, Lord of Knockin. We read of him, that the Arch- 
bishop of Canterbury excommunicated him by name for his in- 
solences upon the breaking out of the Barons' wars; but presently 
after, returning to a just sense of his duty, he had his pardon 
of the King, and was employed in places of the greatest trust 
and honour, which he discharged with a fidelity suitable to his 
great abilities. He is said to have purchased the manors of 
Colmere and Hampton of Peter de Montford, sometime Go- 
vernor of Ellesmere Castle, and then gave or left them to his 
brother Sir Roger, who, the 4th E. I. had the royal confirmation 
of the grant,r with this condition, that upon surrendering a grant 
of his brother Hamon L'Estrange, which was to him and his 
heirs, he should be content to accept of a grant from the King 
of the castle and hundred of Elsmere, to hold for life, the remain- 
der to the King in fee. This Roger afterwards, with the King's 
approbation and warrant, s 12 E. H. granted several parcels of 
land, part of the demesnes of the manor, to several persons in fee, 
at which time the wastes and commons of the manor were in- 
closed and converted into freeholds.

married Roger Kynaston, Esq. her dower being the manors of 
Nesse, Strange, Kynton, Cohncre hamlet, Hampton hamlet, 
Knokin castrum et dominium, Elsmere manor and hundred, the 
Castle of Mudle with the manor.z John, the son of Ptichard, died 
17 E. IV. leaving issue Joan, his sole daughter and heir, marrie<l 
to George, son and heir apparent to Thomas Stanley the first 
Earl of J)erby of that name, in which noble family the inherit- 
ance vested for four descents, when William Earl of Derby had 
licence, ■* 42 Eliz. to make an alienation of the manor of Elsmere 
to Richard Si)encer, Esq. and Edward Savage, the year follow- 
ing ^ obtained the Queen's pardon for the alienation quam fecere 
Thomse Egerton, Militi, CustocU Magni Sigilli, afterwards Lord 
Chancellor, and created Baron of Elsmere, from whom the right 
honourable the Earl of Bridgewater (now Duke) is descended^ 
the present inheritor of Elsmere, Colemere, and Hampton, under 
whom the tenants at half rack, paying a fine, live very comfort- 
ably and handsomely. 

In 6 Jac. George Onslow, Esq. alienated the manor of Saint 
John of Jerusalem, infra villam et parochiam de Elsmere, to Sir 
Thomas Egerton, Lord Elsmere.^ 

Having mentioned the arrentation and inclosures of the waste 
of the manor in 12 E. II., yet the principal tenants to be found 
upon the Inquisition Rolls, were only John Croesmere, alias 
Elsmere, and John Hastings. f^ 

The antientest freeholds of the manor were Ockle or Otteley 
(the noble seat of the ancient and worshipful family of the Kynas'- 
tons, of which there have been several knights who have borne 
the highest offices that gentlemen in a private capacity are ca- 
pable of, particularly the ingenious and learned Sir Francis Ky- 
naston, Esquire of the Body to King Charles the First, and 
Umious for his Latin translation of die Loves of Troilus and Cre- 
sida out of Chaucer,) Loughton, and Walton. 

Richard Laken had an extent 5 H. IV. of the lands of John 
Kynaston, lying in the hundred of Elsmere and Hampton \\^oodj 
and which were forfeited to the King.*^ 

In 13 E. IV. John Langford, of the town of Shrewsbury, had 
a grant for life of all the lands and tenements not exceeding the

attainted of high treason, which lay in Salop and in the hundred 
of Elsmere.f 

By the statute 21 H. VIII. c. 26, Elsmere cum membris was 
united to the hundred of Pimhill. 

In 40 Eliz. the Queen gave a licence to Sir Edward Kynaston 
knight, to keep a market on Tuesday, and a fair in Elsniere;& but 
the account of Leland concerning this town is, that it had four 
streets, three fairs, and no market. None of tlie ruins of the 
castle are left ; but the eminence on which it stood does plainly 
discover that it has been an ancient fort.

Church will be found in the Gentleman's Magazine, vol. xeix. ii. 1 15.} 


Ernui held Pontesberie in the Confessor's time, and also after

A fine was levied 21 Hen. I. between Thomas Corbet, com- 
plainant, and Herbert, the son of Peter, defendant, de duobus

By the Escheat Rolls,' 14 E. I. Reginald, the son of Peter, 
was lord of the manor ; and 28 E. I. one William de Bowdlers 
received the profits that accrued from the Court Baron. 

In 33 E. I. Rehese, the son of Howell, had a gift of the 
advowson and of the manor of Pontesbury from John, the son 
of Reginald the son of Peter.k

which he gave to Sir John de Cherleton, then Lord Chamber- 
lain, and the heirs of his body, to hold by the service of the 40tli 
part of a knight's fee, who had also a grant ^ of free warren in 
this manor. This John de Cherleton was summoned to Parlia- 
ment IT E. II. being Lord Chamberlain to the King, in which 
honourable post John Lord Powis his son succeeded him. Ed-

knight, and Joyce, who married Sir John Tiptoft, Lord Tiptoft, 
who sometimes is styled Lord Powis. But that title properly 
ran in the family of the Greys, who were Lords of Powis, for four 
descents ; when Edward Lord Powis, by his last will and testa- 
ment, 36 H. in. having entailed his estate upon the heirs male of 
his body, limited the remainder to Edward Grey, his illegitimate 
son by Jane Orwell, daughter of Sir Lewis Orwell, knt. and to 
the heirs of his body lawfully begotten, remainder to that child, 
if a son, wherewith the said Jane Orwell was then great by him, 
and to the heirs of his body lawfully begotten, the remainder to 
Jane Grey his daughter, and the heirs of her body lawfully begot- 
ten, the remainder to such woman child as should be born of the 
body of the said Jane Orwell, in fee. In 2 Eliz. the Queen 
committed to Edward Grey, Esq. the custody of the manors of 
Charleton and Pontesbury, habend'. quousque travers. dicti Ed-

In 42 Eliz. Henry Verdon, Esq. and Ursula his wife, had

the like liberty to convey Pontesbury to Roger Owen, Esq. and 
his heirs for ever.o 

The Earl of Dorset, 13 Jac. I. was trustee for Sir Roger Owen

Mr. Owen of Condover, the patron.

the Lords of Powis, as appears by all the Escheat Rolls.

Genealogies of the middle ages are almost wholly confined to the 
families of Sovereign Princes, and some of the chief nobility, beside 
those pedigrees which have been recorded by the gratitude of recluses 
to preserve the memory and descent of their founders and principal 
benefactors. A genealogy, therefore, of a family in one of the lowest 
stations of life, both in narrative and in the form of a pedigree, written 
so early as 1437, and reaching back a century farther, may be considered 
as a curiosity and a rarity. Such is the following, copied by permission 
of the Rector of Exeter College, Oxford, from the earliest document 
relating to their estate of Clifton -ferry, in the parish of Long-Witten- 
ham, in Berkshire. It is a small parchment, about the size of an old 
charter, and is written on both sides by the same ancient hand 5 the 
pedigree is in roundlets.

This pedigree seems to have been designed to show that Thomas 
Frenshe, alias King, grandson of Alice, the second daughter, and (by 
failure of her brother's issue) coheir of John Brouns, the hithe- ward or 
ferryman of Clifton, was one of the heirs at law to his great-grandfather's 
estate. By what means he satisfied the other heirs, it does not appear : 
but on Holy-rood Day, 18 Hen. VI. (3 May 14-40) he conveyed, under 
the name of " Thomas Kynge de ^Vittenam Abbatis/' all his part of the 
" hithe" and passage over the Thames at Clifton, with all chambers, 
houses, lands, meadows, pastures, ditches, waters, and fisheries, to Peter 
Shotesbroke, Esq. of Newenham, John Shephard of Wittenham-Comitis, 
clerk, and Thomas Haukyne of the same ; one of the witnesses of his 
deed being John Tubbe, the old man from whose knowledge of the 
family the genealogy had been drawn. These three persons rc-infeoffed 
Iiiui and Joan hit. wife of the same estate, for their li\cy, and to the 


assigns of the said Thomas Kynge for ever, on Saturday in Easter-week, 
19 Hen. VI. 1441. In 1483, 4 Nov. 22 Edw. IV. Joan Goldry and 
John Frenshe alias John Kynge, of Redyng, (who seem to have been 
the widow and the son of Thomas Kynge,) gave their half-part of the 
hithc to John Yonge, of ^\^atlyngton, his heirs and assigns ; and on 
the 30th of the same month, the said J. F. alias J. K. released and 
quit-claimed the same to him ; Sir W. Stoner being the principal wit- 
ness to both deeds. This John Yonge conveyed it to John Mercer, 
clerk, William Buldry, and Roger Roper of Watlington, and to the heirs 
and assigns of the last named, 12 Jan. 2 Ric. III. (1485); appointing 
on the 14th, Chr. Swan, bailiif of Abyndon, and John Gibon of Wat- 
lington, his attorneys, to give seizin ; and on the 3 1 st he released the 
same with the same remainder. Eight years after, this Roger Roper, 
described as a " draper," demised it unto Ric. Panter, Rector of Exeter 
College, Will. Ford, Walter Kyngdone, John Philipe, Will. Brue, Will. 
Merifelde, John Frendshipe, Tho. Laurey, Walter Cowse, and John 
Hickys, clerks. Rich. Robertis, Walter Dudman, Will. Glovere, Tho. 
Tremayne, and Peter Druet, scholars {liter atis), and to their heirs for 
ever, by deed dated at Oxford, 1 Aug. 8 Hen. VII. 1493; and by 
another, on the 28th of Nov. he quit-claimed all his right unto the said 
Rector and to the Fellows of the College, said to be " then in full pos- 
session," and to their successors; Tho. Larkyne, Robert and Reginald 
Curteys, and Roger Aleyne, being witnesses to both these deeds. This 
is the substance of the only (nine) ancient deeds relating to the estate 
of Clifton-ferry.

The boundaries of manors and parishes often contain in the names of 
places the records of past events, which those who are well versed in the 
Saxon language are best capable of unravelling. This observation is 
occasioned by the word " Bispeslowe." This is a compound word, the 
last syllable of which is a corruption of the Saxon " leawe," a burial- 
place, and therefore the whole word probably marks the tumxdus or 
grave of a Saxon of the former name, unless the word " Bispes" itself 
should be a corruption of the Saxon word, Biscopes, and therefore 
denote that it is the burial-place of a Bishop.

In 1833 nearly one thousand ancient deeds of Shropshire and of the 
Priory of St. Thomas near Stafford, were sold by auction, and came to 
the hands of one of the Editors of these Collectanea ; from which }ie has 
selected the following deed for the purpose of shewing the probability 
that the two great families of Stafford and Bagot were descended in 
the male line from a common ancestor of the name of Bagot. This 
original charter is undated ; but appears to have been written about the 
time of King John. It has been injured by wet, and is thereby partly 
decayed in the middle. The seal is lost.

Lysons, in his account of St. George's Chapel, (Magna Britannia, 
i. 424) says, "The rood loft and lanthorn were erected in 1516." The 
following extract from the Liber Niger Ordinis Garterii, (copied in St. 
Lo Kniveton's Collections respecting the Earls of Arundel, MS. Harl. 
4840, fo. 725 ^.) illustrates that statement ; and furnishes the interest- 
ing fact that the Knights of the Order were then contributors to the 
embellishment of the edifice. It occurs among the proceedings of a 
council of the Order, held at Greenwich, on St. George's day, 1517. 

" Ibi decretum est quod pulpitum e quo Crucifixus respicit et 
vitrea superne specula in sacello regio Windesori curerentur 
apposite perficiendse, utque tota Societas insimul, ad id tanto 
citius et facilius conficiendum, manus porrigeretadjutrices. Sumniffi 
vero turn appositae fuerunt, ut dux Suft"' 4()li annumeraret, 
Comes Arondellias totitlem. Conies Surrey 301', J)ns Burga- 
venny 20ii, &c." J. G. N. 




Previously to the establishment of Parish Registers it was a practice 
among many families to insert entries of their marriages, births, and 
deaths in their books of devotion, just in the same manner as a family 
Bible is now used for the same purpose. To these entries are often 
added others of an historical nature. They ought certainly to be con- 
sidered good legal evidence, being generally registered by the parties 
themselves or their immediate relations, and are worth preserving when- 
ever they are met with. In the hope of inducing others to contribute 
similar articles (which must prove of great value to the genealogist) a 
specimen is here subjoined from some MSS. which have recently fallen 
under the notice of an antiquary. 

Among the documents of this description already published may be 
enumerated the following : 

Obits, &c. of the Mandevilles and Bohuns, Earls of Essex, and their 
families and connections, from a Register of Walden Abbey, MS. Arun- 
del, 51, 2, Br. Mus. printed in the Monasticon, vol. iv. p. 139, new ed. 

Of the Chaworths and others from a calendar of Beauchief Abbey 
(MS. olim R. Graves) in Hcarne's John of Glastonbury, ii, 557-566. 

Twelve obits of the Fitz-AA'illiams and Clarells, from a missal in the 
Fitz-William Museum, Cambridge, in Hunter's South Yorkshire, ii. 54. 

Two obits of Chaucombe, and ten obits and nativities of Segrave, from 
the Cartulary of Chaucombe Priory, in Black's Catalogue of the MSS. 
in Colh Arm. p. 91.

" A very beautiful Breviary written in the reign of Henry VI. Prefixed are many 
well-executed illuminations of different Saints ; among tliem is John, Prior of Bridling- 
ton. On the last miniature are represented a male and female figure kneeling, which 
are, douhtless, intended for tlie original owners of the volume, and probably, members 
of the Grandesone family. The entries are added in three or four different hands in the 
Calendar. In Mr. Douce's library is a fine copy of the Salisbury missal, printed by 
Pynson, in 1495, and in the Calendar prefixed are duplicate entries of many of the above 
historical notices, and some few others, not in the royal MS. which are here subjoined :

" A mistake has been made by Mr. Bray, in computing three of the entries which be- 
1 ong to Exeter under Oxford, and also in erroneously adding up the amount, so that there 
is a difference in his total and ours of 6Q0l, 9s. 7d. — Edil. 




This document, wliicli is indorsed, " A Note of the p'ticuler commo- 
dities of Lemmington Hastings," appears to have been prepared in order 
to recommend to sale the advowson of the Vicarage. It has been pre- 
served among the papers of Sir Wilham Hericke, Goldsmith to King 
James the First ; by whose lineal descendant, the present William Her- 
rick, Esq. of Beaumanor Park, Leicestershire, it was presented to me in 
the year 1831. 

From the list of the incumbents of Leamington Hastings, printed in 
Dugdale's History of Warwickshire, it appears that Queen Elizabeth 
presented to the Vicarage in 1570, Jane Locksmyth, widow, in 1619, 
and Sir Thomas Trevor, Bart, in 1646. It was evidently whilst the ad- 
vowson was in the market between these dates that the present docu- 
ment was drawn up. 

The Fee simple of the Advowson, pesentac'on and right ot 
Patronage of y^ Personage and vicarage of Lemmington Hastings, 
in the Countie of Warvvickc, w^hin die Diocesse of Coventrye and 

There belongeth to the said pish of Lemmington Hastings 
these Townes standinge all nppon Mannors and great Fermes of 

Lemmington the pisli Towne, where the church standeth and 
the psonage howse, wtl» all other edifices most faire and bewtifull. 

There belongeth to the same Church a great village of iuis- 
bandry called Bradwell, and an other village of husbandrie called 

An other village of most fruitful! soyle called Kittes Hardicke, 
where the Parson haili one hundred acres of glebe land, one pte 
thereof called Ougham, uppon W^'' pcell there is a curtelage 
called passe yard, uppon W^'' the pson hath builded a tenem*^ 
wtl'in tiiese five yeares. 

And alsoe there lyeth an other pcell of glcabe land apptayn- 
inge to the said Parsonage vv'^l'in the s'> village of Hardwick 
called Wcstcroft, all w<^li contayne one luuulreil acres of most 
fruitfull arable and pasture grounds. 


The yearelie commoditie of Lemmington Hastings 
about 30 yeares past. 

Impri's the gleabe land called Ougham and Westcroft lyinge 
in the village of Hardwick, as I remember a plough-land of 
husbandrie, for it keepeth 10 milch beastes beside rearers ; 200 
or three hundred sheepe besides comons ; and a husbandrie of

[Harkian MS. 1074.) 

The valuable volume in which these pedigrees occur, appears to have 
been the compilation of a Herald about the latter part of the reign of 
Henry the Seventh. At folio 286 a collection commences of the pedi- 
grees of numerous families who were descended from the blood royal, or 
from some other common ancestor of King Henry VII., or of his consort 
Elizabeth of York. Some of these descents are headed, " Of dyvers 
oder Nobles wyche ben to the Kyng in the 3 degree." " Here under 
showeth how the more part of the Nobles of this Realme ben within 
degree of marriage of my Lord Prince Arthur." " How the Due of Buk- 
yngham [and other Peers] ys of the Kyng's blod," &c. It is impossible 
to state the motive with which this compilation was made, whether by 
order of the King to show how nearly some of his subjects were allied to 
him in blood, — from that alliance conferring any particular privilege at 
Court, — or from mere curiosity on the part of the Herald ; but its utility 
is obvious. As a contemporary collection of pedigrees by an Officer of 
Arms, it is useful in corroborating what was previously known of the 
numerous families to which they relate, and from its comprising all the 
younger children, whose names and marriages are in some cases here only 
to be found. 

To the attention of the historian of the period this collection has 
strong claims, as it explains why many great families espoused the 
cause of Henry the Seventh ; and it throws much light on many alliances 
which have hitherto been inexplicable. For instance, it has been a 
subject of surprise that Sir Richard Pole, of whom, or of whose family, 
little was known, should have married Margaret Countess of Salisbury, 
the last descendant of the Plantagenets. One of these pedigrees proves 
that Sir Richard Pole was nearly related to the King, which accounts 
for thefact. 

As these pedigrees are very extensive, and necessarily contain many 
repetitions, they are here printed in a condensed form, by introducing 
several tables relating to the same family into one. Every name, 
and the exact words of the JMS. have, however, been most carefully 
retained ; but the spelling has been changed to the present orthography.

Marquise of Dorset was there." His will, dated 2nd March 1496, and in which 
he styles himself " Olyver Seynt John, Esqiiyer, sonne to the excellent Duchesse of 
Somersett," is printed in Nicolas's Testamenta Vetusta. In his wife's epitaph, which 
is printed imperfectly in the Peerages, but at full in Turner's History of the Soke of 
Grantham, he is styled " Mastyr Olyu' Sentjohn, squier, sonne unto y^" right excellent 
hye and mightty pryuces duchesse of Som'sete, g'ndarae unto ou' sov'eyn Lord Kynge 
Herre the vij." 

'• In another pedigree, f. 117 of the same volume, he is called " Gaulfredus Polle, 
miles ; " but on a shield in which his wife's arms occupy the sinister side, the dexter is 
left blank. The coat of Sir Richard Pole on his plate as Knight of the Garter at Wind- 
sor, is Party per pale Argent and Sable, a saltire engrailed Counterchanged; a charge 
which, if first assigned to him, may have been suggested by his lady's inheritance, tlie 
saltire of the Nevilles.

This Bridge, which is of stone, crosses the river Thames, and 
joins Wiltshire with Gloucestershire near the town of Lechlade. 
By an examination of its foundation, it has been ascertained that 
the present erection, although repaired and altered in the upper 
part, is the original Bridge, and of great antiquity. 

The county of Gloucester in the year 1831 indicted George 
Milward, Esq. the lord of the manor, the Honourable William 
Frederick Spencer Ponsonby, M. P., Pryce Pryce, Esq. M. P., 
and others, for not repairing this Bridge, which it was asserted 
they were bound to do, as owners of the lands formerly belonging 
to the priory of Saint John, at Lechlade, and to rebut this asser- 
tion, it became necessary to search the public records, in order to 
ascertain the history of the Bridge, and the following is an epitome 
of the documents found. The trial of the Indictment took place 
at Hereford, when, after two days investigation, the jury not 
being able to agree were discharged, having previously suffered 
themselves to be locked up all night. A second indictment had 
an exactly similar trial and result, so that the county failed in 
their attempt. It is said that the expenditure on these two trials 
would have much more than rebuilt the Bridge. 

The first record discovered was, a licence on the Charter Rolls 
in the 12th year of Henry the Tliird, permitting Peter Fitzher- 
bert to build a gate at the foot of the Bridge. Peter Fitzherbert 
was the second husband of Isabella Ferrers, whose descent may 
be seen in the ordinary genealogical works. She was the heiress 
of the manor of Lechlade, and founded during the lifetime of her 
first husband, Roger Mortimer, or during lier widowhood, a reli- 
gious house at the foot of the Bridge, which she granted to the 
Brothers of the hospital of Saint John at Lechlade, " together 
with the Bridge of Lechlade of her the same Isabel." This grant 
was confirmed in 1245 by Henry the Third. 

No further notice of the Bridge occurs until the 12th Edward 
the Third (1388) when the King gave the prior of the religious 
house, a grant of Pontage, or right of taking toll for three years 
in aid of the repairs of the Bridge, whicli had become ruinous ; at 


tlie end of which period, the Bridge not having been amended, a 
similar grant was given by the King to the Prior ; and about fifty 
years afterwards (11th Richard 11. 1387) King Richard the Se- 
cond made a third grant of similar purport. As these grants 
enumerate the ordinary articles of commerce at that period, one 
of them is here inserted :

The King to his well-beloved in Christ, Richard, Prior of 
Lichelade, greeting. Know ye, that in aid of repairing and

lialfpenny; for every horse, mare, ox, and cow for sale, one far-

carried over that Bridge (except wool, fleeces, hides of oxen 
and cows, and iron) one farthing. And therefore we command 
you that you take the aforesaid customs until the end of the 
aforesaid 2 years, and use them about the reparation and amend- 
ment of the aforesaid Bridge as is before mentioned. But the 
said term of two years being completed the said customs shall 
entirely cease. Witness the King at Westminster the second 
day of March. (11th Ric. 11.) 

It appears by the Hundred Rolls of the 4th Edward I. (1275) 
that the Prior at that early date possessed a tenement in the 
tythlng of Buscot in Berkshire, in which tything one end of the 
Bridge abuts, and this tenement was doubtless the gift of some 
patriotic individual for the pur})ose of assisting in the repairs of 
the Bridge, as appears by the ensuing Records. 

In the 21st, 22d, 26th, and 36th years of Henry VIII. (1529 
to 1544) are entries on the Court Rolls of the manor of Shriven- 
ham in Berkshire for the tything of Buscot, that the Prior of St. 
John's was fined for not repairing the Bridge of Lechlade, and 
this liability could only have been in respect of the Prior's tene- 
ment at Buscot, as the Hospital possessed no other property 
within that manor or tything, and could only have become liable 
in respect of property within such jurisdiction. 

On the suppression of Monasteries by Heniy VIII. the 
Commissioners certified that the College of Wallingford (to which 
the Hospital of St. John at Lechlade then belonged) was liable 
for 3/. 6^. 8c?. for reparations of St. John's Bridge. (Certificate 
in Augmentation Office). 

In the Reign of EtUvard VI. the Bridge had become so ruinous 
that the King sent a Commission down to inquire who ought to 
repair it, and the Commissioners having examined numerous 
very aged persons, certified that the Prior of St. John's (being 
then Dean of Wallingford) did repair the Bridge, that he had 
been fined at Slnivenham Court for not repairing it, and that 
Jacket's tenement at Buscot was liable to the repairs. 

From 1579 to 1029 are constant entries on die Court Rolls of 
Shrivenham manor, of individuals, who were owners of property 
/. 2 


at Buscot, being fined for not repairing the Bridge, as they 
ought to do by tenure of those lands. 

From the circumstance of a tenement belonging to the Prior 
being charged with repairing the Bridge, arose in later years a 
local opinion that all the lands of the Priory were liable to such 
repairs ; and to show the folly of trusting to tradition, it may be 
mentioned that lands have long been " Jinoicn " by the inhabitants 
of Lechlade as Priory lands which the Public Records prove never 
were so, and that even the owners of some of the lands were 
equally in error with their tenants and the unlettered villagers, 
in considering them to have belonged to the religious house of 
St. John. 

Under the Bridge are weirs for fish, and other purposes, and 
the eels caught there are in high repute ; it is mentioned in the 
Domesday Survey that there was at that period a fishery of 175 
eels there.

ESSEX, IN 1722. 

Morant (vol. i. p. 108.) states that this manor was " sold in 1/21 by 
a widow of Mr. Graves, brother to IVIr. Joseph Graves, a Clergyman of 
Lewes in Sussex, who had enjoyed it about sixty years, to Mr. Amos 
White, present possessor." The date here given is evidently a little 
too early, as it appears from the following letter that the estate was on 
sale in June 1/22. These documents are placed in a copy of Morant's 
Essex in the possession of John Bowyer Nichols, Esq. F.S.A. and the

Having dispatched the preceding principal and collateral 
branches of the worshipful family of Foljambe, I proceed now to

the Deed (No. 64) of Thomas Castleton, Vicar of Wirksvvorth,

And that the ancient estates belonging to the flimily were ulti- 
mately intailed upon him and the heirs male of himself in default 
of heirs male of John and Thomas his brothers, by the first wife 
of Sir Thomas Foljambe their father, as hath been sufficiently

No. 85. He died the 50th Edw. III. as appears by the inqui- 
sition of that year, and Godfrey, the son of Godfrey his son, was 
his heir, being then nine years old. He had issue Godfrey, who 
died in his father's Hfetiine, and Thomas, of whom in due place.

Foljambe, Knt. and Margaret his wife, and Robert Delaport, 
clerk, of the manor of Kynalton, &c. the right of Godfrey and 
Margaret, and the heirs of their bodies. (Dodsw. Collect.) This 
Margaret I suppose was daughter and heir of Payne Villers, of 
Kinalton, and was the same who was afterwards married to Sir 
Thomas Rempston, and probably she bought several of those 
lands that Sir Robert Plompton had with Alice her grandchild, 
and if it be so, then this Godfrey was also a knight, as will ap- 
pear afterwards. 

No. 88. The 42d Edw. HI. frere William Rainsbout, Prior 
of St. Mary of Lancaster, grants to Godfrey, son of Sir Godfrey

the advowson of the churches of Croxton and Eccleston for life, 
and the King confirms it. 

No. 90. He lived the 45th Edw. III. for the 11th of July that 
year the King gave to Godfrey Foljambe and William de Sa-

No. 91. He married Margaret, as is before related; which 
Margaret, before the 21st Rich. II. was married to Sir Tho-

appear after the account I shall give of Alice her grandchild, and 
when certainly she did die I have not yet found. But, if she was 
but fourteen years old at her marriage, she must be about seventy- 
two years old in the 17th Hen. VI. 

He had issue Sir Godfrey. 

No. 93. Margaret married to Sir Nicholas Montgomery, Knt. 
by whom she had Matildis, that died the 30th Hen. VI., haviug 
married Thomas Clarell of Aldwai'ke, who lived to the 36th of 
Hen. VI. anno 1457. 


Godfrey Foljambe was nine years old at his father's death. 
He was a knight, as will appear by all the evidences hereafter to 
be related. 

No. 94. He seems to be dead before the 12th Rich. Il.d and 
lived not above 22 years. But if he was dead when Sir Richard 
Green died, then he was under age, and left his daughter and 
heir unborn. 

No. 95. By inquisition taken 12di Ric. II. (No. 22.) it ap-

the rent of 40s. out of Cowbridge, com. Stafford, for life. Testib.

No. 105. The 2d Hen. V. this Sir Robert Plompton is Steward

which particular proofs will be exhibited when (if God grant 
life) I treat of that ancient family. ( Dodsw. Collect. 239.) 

No. 106. The 9th Hen. V. this Sir Robert Plompton died. 
In the settlement made for the use of his last will the feoffees are 
Henry Fitz Hugh, lord of Ravensworth, Treasurer of England, 
the Lady Margaret de Rempston, the Lady Alice de Plomp- 
ton his mother, and others, and he settles 20 marks for life 
on Godfrey de Plompton his son, &c. Johan and Alice his 
daughters, &c. 

No. 107. It seems his lady was then dead, for in Spofforth 
church this epitaph appears : 

Hie jacet Robertas Plompton, mil. nuper Seuescallus de Knares-

succeeding history of the family of the Foljambes, that by virtue 
of some intails, the next heirsmaleof the Foljambes, viz. Thomas 
son of the first Sir Godfrey and his posterity, enjoyed some of 


No. 114. Having seen the direct line of the first Sir God- 
frey Foljambe thus end in a female, we must ascend higher again 
to deduce the heir male of the family from the first Sir Godfrey, 
in whose life I have given an account of his settlement of six 
marks out of his manor of Pillesley on his son Thomas, the 44th 
Edw. III. being four years after Godfrey his son was married, 
and the mention of this Thomas, son of Godfrey Foljambe, the 
34th Edw. III. to which I must refer the reader (No. 76). 

No. 115. So great an estate being by Alice, the daughter and 
heir of the last Sir Godfrey, carried to tlie family of tlie Plomp- 
tons, it was the good fortune of this Thomas to lay the founda- 
tion of a considerable estate by his marriage with Margaret, 
daughter of Sir John Loudham, and sister and coheir of Sir John 
Loudham the younger. The other sister, Isabell, was married

cates in Newton, and the advowson of the church of Billesthorp, 
and did demise the same to Margaret, which was wife to Sir John 
Zouch, Knt. for the life of Margaret, and he dying without issue

after the death of Thomas Rempston, Knt. that he held of the in- 
heritance of EHzabeth, wife of John Cheney, Esq., Isabell, wife of 
Brian Stapleton, Knt. and Margaret, wife of Richard Bingham, 
jun. Esq. daughter and heir of Ahce, which was wife of the said 
Thomas Rempston, the manor of Tuxford, called Beckering 
manor, and the advowson of the two chantries of St. Thomas 
the Martyr and St. Mary the Virgin, in the church of Laxtoii,

suages and six carucates in Newton, and the advowson of the 
church of Billesthorp, and a chantry in Loudham, and the manor 
of Arsnell, and that Thomas died the 15th October last, and 
Elizabeth is forty years old, Isabell thirty-six, and Margaret 
thirty-two years old. 

This Thomas Foljambe that married Mai'garet, daughter and 
heir of Loudham, in the 3d Hen. V. was Alderman of the 
Guild of Saint Mary in Chesterfield, and grants to William 
Barber, of Chesterfield, lands belonging to the same. 

The 6th Hen. V. John Parker, of Walton, gives to Thomas 
Foljambe, sen. of Walton, all the lands in Walton got of Isabel 
Ker, of Walton, his aunt. Test. John de Hill, of Walton.

Statham, Esq. holds for term of life three messuages and lands 
in Tideswell and Lytton, the remainder, after the death of 
Roger Foljambe, to the said Thomas and his heirs, he con- 
firms the possession of Godith for life. By this it appears that 
the entail on the heirs male was very ancient. 

The 16th Hen. VI. John le Zouch, Knt. receives of Thomas 
Foljambe, Esq. 9/. in payment of the dower of Margaret his wife, 
widow of John Loudham. 

The 11th Hen. VI. Thomas Foljambe, Esq. grants to Sir 
Richard Vernon, Knt. the grange of Evanbroke. 

The 15th Hen. VI. W' illiam Hudson, Gent, grants to Thomas 
Foljambe the lands in Halewell Gate in Chesterfield. 

This Thomas Foljambe had issue Thomas, of whom iiere- 
after, Margaret, of whom below, and Joan ; for I find in a Roll 
of the fraternity of the Guild of Chesterfield, in the first row, 
Thomas Foljambe is alderman, and in that row is mention of 
Joan his daughter, which Joan may possibly be the sister of the 
next Thomas, who was a nun at Scnipringiiain, and that may be 


the reason why she is set before so many others, next to her 

Margaret married to John Cokefield, for I find that the 22d 
Hen. VI. a fine was levied between John Cokefield, Esq. and 
Margaret his wife, querent, and Richard Bingham and William 
Foljambe, defendant, of the manor of Notthall and Basford, 
with lands in Radford and Lenton, and the advowson of Nott- 
hall, the right of John and Margaret his wife, and their heirs 
male, the remainder to John Ayskwith and Margaret his wife? 
daughter and heir of John Taylboys, jun. Esq. the remainder to 
the heirs of John Cokefield, Knt. By an inquisition 4th Edw. IV. 
it is found, that Margaret, wife of John Cokefield, was seised 
of the manor of Notthall, &c. as before, and that John Cokefield 
died without issue, and that Margaret was sister to Sir Thomas 
Foljambe, and that Thomas Foljambe, son and heir of Thomas 
Foljambe, is her heir, and is four years old. 


Thomas Foljambe (son and heir of Thomas Foljambe and 
Margaret Loudham) was forty years old the 29th Henry VI. and 
held the manor of Walton. 

The 26th Hen. VI. this Thomas Foljambe with his father, in 
the deed before, wherein his father is entitled to the remainder 
of Roger Foljambe, son of Sir Edward, died without issue male, 
which he did. And so the estate of the descendant John Fol- 
jambe, of Tideswell, came to him and his son, as is cleared 
in the account I give of Roger. 

This Thomas Foljambe gave lands in Walton, Brampton, 
Callow, and Redich, and the moiety of the manor of Briming- 
ton, and lands in Whittington, Tapton, and Normanton, to 
Henry Foljambe his son. The year obliterated. 

In the Roll of the fraternity of the Guild of Chesterfield, in 
the second column, the Prior is Thomas Foljambe, minor, and 
Joan his wife. He married Jane, daughter of Sir Thomas 
Ashton, Knt. they had issue Thomas and Henry, and two 
daughters ; Anne married to William Thorp. I suppose the 
other daughter was intended a nun at Sempringham ; for I find 
a letter without date, and by wet and moths much defaced, 
yet so much as can be read for the matter and writing, and 
writing of the English in that age, I think worth the transcribing. 


I believe it writ to this Thomas, and not to his son. It is sub- 

To my right reverend Thomas Foljambe this letter to be delivered. 

Reverant Sir, I com'eud me to you, please it you to understand that I 
have com'uned with your sister as ye desired me by your wryting, if she 
is disposed to be professed or otherwise ; and schyrly. Sir, she is disposed 
for to continue in her first purpose that she and [?] give her god perse- 
verance, and your consayle be your words in your writing if sche will 
be religious ; yet I had levehyr sche had nere comen theyr and sche 
should depart now, and be better pleased than she had bene marryed to 
the Knight. And yf ye understand it noght in ys world, 1 trust verily 
ye shall know that in the world yat is for to come, if our Lord dispose 
that ye like him to her will, and therefore of your charyte give hyr com- 
forth in her god and devote purpose, that ye may have thanks of hym. 
At Sempringham, on the Monday in the Rogation Days. 

By the humble Minyster of the order of Sempringham. 

The 22d Hen. VI. I find Thomas Foljambe, jun. and William 
Foljambe Avitness with Thomas Clarell. 

The 35th Hen. VI. Nicholas Longford, Knt. gives to Tho- 
mas Foljambe, Esq. all his lands in Killamarsh and Barlborough 
for term of years, paying 20/. a-year to Thomas Meverell, 
John Longford, George Carrington, Roger Foljambe, William 
Bascet, Esq. 

The same year John Holme, son and heir of Thomas Holme 
of Chesterfield, is bound to him in 20/. the condition of the said 
Thomas enjoy a rent in Chesterfield and lands in Boythorp 
which he hath, to the grant of Thomas Holme and William 
Foljambe of llepham. 

The 1st Edw. IV. he is styled lord of Walton, in a deed 
wherein he gives to Thomas Babington of Dethick, sen. Esq. an 
annual rent of 20/. out of the tenements in Loudham, com. Not- 
tingham, for 2G years. Testib. Henry Cullumbell, John Kin- 

The same year John Peck, of Chesterfield, and Margaret his 
wife, release to Thomas Foljambe, Richard Fitzwilliams, and 
John Clarell, Esqrs. all his right in lands in Sheffield, which were 
John Peck his grandfather's. 

The 2d Edw. IV. Robert Lacy and Margaret his wife gave 
to Thomas Foljambe, Esq. Richard Stallbrd of Heslow, and 
James Foljambe, chaplain, the right of Margaret in Hope and 
Castleton, which Elizabeth mollier of Margaret held in dower. 

The 4th Edw. IV. Thomas Foljambe of Walton, Esq. gives to 


Richard Earl of Warwick, and William Lord Hastings, Chamber- 
lain of the King, the manor of Tideswell, com. Derby, and lands in 
Tideswell, Hucklow, Wormhill, Abney, Longsdon, and Button. 
By which it appears that some of the lands in those places still 
remained to the heirs male, or that he enfeofed those great per- 
sons in those lands for the better recover}^ of them from Sir 
William Plompton. But of this I have seen no clear proof. 

This Thomas married Margery, oldest daughter of Sir Nicholas 
Longford, Knt. he died without issue, and so his estate de- 
scended to his brother Henry. The marriage is proved by 
this indenture, dated die 15tli Nov. 1454. Wherein it is agreed 
that Thomas Foljambe, Esq. shall marry Margery, eldest daugh- 
ter of Nicholas Longford, Knt.; that Sir Nicholas pay on the day 
of marriage 70/. and to find security or sixteen several obligations, 
of 1 0/. a piece for fifteen of them, and five marks for the last, the 
first obligation to be paid on St. Martin's 1454, the second on 
St. John Baptist day, and so after two half-yearly ; and every 
obligation to have this condition, that if divorce or disagreement 
be had between the said Thomas and Margery, the cause arising 
from Thomas, where-through the matrimony or espousal or con- 
tract to be had between them be undone or made void, before 
any of the days of payment, that payment to be void; or if Mar- 
gery should die without issue being alive at the day of her death 
then that obligation to be void ; that 20 marks a-year be settled 
for her jointure. 


This Thomas was dead before the 8th Edward IV. for then his 
relict Margery was remarried to Thomas Odall, and in some 
writings called Woodhall, Esq. for then Henry Foljambe, bro- 
ther and heir of Thomas, confirms to this Thomas Odall, Esq. 
and Margery his wife a rent of 24/. a-year for her life, to be re- 
ceived out of the manor of Walton and Brimington, com. Derb. 

I find acquittance from this Thomas Odall, or Woodhall, Esq. 
from that time to 14T0; and the 17th Edw. IV. for 12/. half 
yearly rent paid by the said Henry Foljambe of Walton, son of 
Thomas Foljambe and Jane Ash ton, and heir of his brother 

The 8th Henry VI. Richard Lestow, late of Chesterfield,

Archbishop of Canterbury, in the reign of Henry II.) grants to 
Henry Foljambe of Walton for term of life, " pro bono concilio 
ac supportatione et auxilio nobis impensis, et quod nobis in 
posterum divina gratia impendet et impendere intendit," an 
annual rent of 40s. yearly. 

The 12th Edw. IV. John Catton, Sheriff of Nottingham and 
Derby, receives of Henry Foljambe, Esq, 10/. by virtue of a 
scire facias. 

In a paper I find this :

to say, his grandfather, father, mother, brother, sister, or any 
other, have any thing of the said place, or owe any duties to the

I shall now exhibit two letters relating to this Henry : 
Honourable Cousin, after faithfull commendations like it you to un- 
derstand my Lord is soer and grievously against you for the matter 
between you and Ash, and purposeth to seek remedy in that matter as 
a Lord oweth to do for his servant, by means according to the Law, and 
I promise you he is sharply set thereto. Sir, my Lord, at mine instance, 
is agreeable if ye be here at Codnore, and if ye will bring with you a 
learned man and proofe your title good. 

By this and the following letter it seems there was some differ- 
ences betwixt the Lord Grey of Codnor and this Henry Fol- 

Henry Foljambe writes to the Lord Grey as followeth : 
Honourable and my Right Reverend and Worshipfull Lord, I re- 
com'end me unto your good [Lordship], and have receyved your letter of 
credence hy Sir Robert Skipton, &c. as touching the matter for Rawfe 
Rodbles Lyleland (?) and his moders, in which matter I beseech you to be 
my good Lord, and remember that I have been in your service when it 
was fuh laude (?) upon the lands, and ye be remembered ye appointed me 
in the King's Chamher that I should have a day assigned me to be paid. 
I tryst to find you much better Lord to me, when I have a letter from 
your Lordship here very knowleg of the truth, &c. Jesu, Jesus, pre- 
serve you at all times. AA'ritten at VV^ilton on Tuesday before the 
feast of All Souls.

No. 163. Li a roll of the fraternity of the Guild of Chester- 
field, next to Robert Barley, Esq. Alderman of the Guild, Henry 
Foljambe and Benedicta his wife, Godfrey Foljambe, and John 
Foljambe, are inroUed; then Peter Fretchvile and Matilda his

Ellen his wife, John Lynacre and Katherine his wife, and many 

No. 164. The 15th Hen. VH. John Bride of Skegby, com. 
Nottingham, and Ralph his son and heir, are obliged to Henry 
Foljambe, lord of Walton, to lease to Henry Foljambe and 
Bennet his wife, Skegby for ten years. 

The same year John Dunham of Kirklinton, com. Netting- 


ham, Esq. gives to Henry Foljambe of Walton, lands in Skip- 
ton for 61 years. 

The ICtli Hen. VH. by the name of Henry Foljambe, of Wal- 
ton, Esq. he grants to Reynald Bray, Henry ^^ernon, John Sa- 
vile, and Thomas Ashton, Knts. 8cc. all his lands in Chesterfield, 
Newbald, Langley, Boythorp, Netherhill, Hasland Hill, Wyn- 
gerworth, Hatchwick, Ashover, Beley, Brad way, Birched, Green-

neslow, Darnall, llotherham. Whales, and Bromley, com. Ebor. 
as he the said Henry had purchased of several persons. Dated 
the 28th August. 

In the account I am to give of Roger, one of the sons of 
Henry, it will appear that those lands were thus enfeoffed for the 
use of the last will of the said Henry, and that he died without 
declaring any uses : so that these lands descended to Sir Godfrey 
his eldest son; but by agreement the younger sons had some divi- 
sions made, as will appear more manifest hereafter. However, 
it may by this be observed how greatly this Henry increased his 

By an inquisition taken die 20th Hen. VHL before Thomas 
Mering, escheator, after the death of Roger Foljambe, this 
Henry Foljambe, Esq. father of the said Roger, before his death 
was seised of ten messuages, 400 acres of land, 200 acres of mea- 
dow, 200 acres of pasture, and 30 acres of wood in Brampton, 
and of 13 messuages, 15 cottages, 500 acres of land in Chester- 
field; two messuages, 60 acres of land, and 16 acres of mea- 
dow in Brad way ; of one messuage, 30 acres of land in Res- 
ton ; two messuages, 60 acres of land, 20 acres of meadow, and 
six acres of wood in Oneston and Somervile ; one messuage and 
40 acres of land in Nether Hanley ; two messuages, 60 acres of 
land in Brimington ; two messuages and 60 acres of land in Han- 
ley near Parkgate, and 30 acres in Eckington ; one messuage 
and six cottages, and 40 acres of land, and ten acres of land in 
Beighton ; one messuage and 30 acres of land, and 12 acres 
of meadow, and seven acres of wood in \\ ingerworth ; one

one shop (selda), and 40 acres of land in Derby ; one barn and 
60 acres of land in Over Hadden ; three messuages and 80 
acres of land in Abney ; two messuages and one cottage, and 
30 acres of land in Hope ; two messuages and 40 acres of 
land; 15 acres of meadow in Hehedge, and 20 acres in Tap-- 
ton. And by his charter, the 28th of August, the 16th Hen.VII. 
feoffed in the same Reginald Bray, Henry Vernon, John Savile, 
Thomas Ashton, Knts. Henry Shaw, &,c. for the feoffees of the 
will of the said Henry, and he died without declaring his will, and 
so the feoffees stood seised in this to the use of Godfrey his son. 

How Godfrey and his brother Roger agreed will be shown in 
the life of Roger. 

This Henry married Bennett, the daughter of Sir William 
Vernon, of Nether Hadden ; and it seems he resided in Walton, 
and had some interest there before the death of Thomas his bro- 
tlier ; for I find in the 20th Hen. VI. that Henry Foljambe, of 
Walton, is bound to Henry Vernon and John Savill in 200/. 
the 9th of October, for performance, I suppose, of covenants of 
marriage. They had issue Sir Godfrey, Thomas, Henry, Rich- 
ard, John, and Roger ; Mary married to Miles Bussey ; Jennett 
to John Leek, of Worksop ; Elizabeth married to Riciiard Town- 
ley ; Anne married to Robert Colevill. 

Tlie 27th Hen. VH., Thomas Barley, son and heir of John 
Barley, late of Dronfield Woodhouse, is bound to Thomas, 
Henry, Gilbert, Roger, sons of Henry Foljambe, to perform 
covenants betwixt him and Henry Foljambe, the 14th Hen. VH. 
then to be void. 

The 3d of October, . . . Hen. VH. Henry Vernon and John Sa- 
vile, Knts. supervisors of the testament of Henry Foljambe, late 
of Walton, Esq. made an agreement betwixt Godfrey Foljambe, 
of Walton, son and heir of Henry, and Thomas, Henry, Gilbert, 
and Roger, younger sons and brethren of Godfrey ; Bennett, the 
relict of this Henry Foljambe, Godfrey, Thomas, and Roger, 
his sons, agree with Flenry Harpur and William Moorecock, of 
Burton, in Staffordshire, to make a tomb for Henry Foljambe, 
husband of Bennett, in St. Mary's Quire, in the church of All- 
hallows, in Chesterfield, and to make it as good as is the tomb of 
Sir Nicholas Montgomery at Colley, with eighteen images under 
the table, and the arms upon them, and the said Henry in cop- 
per and gilt upon the table of marble, with two arms at the 


head, and two arms at the feet of the same, and the table of 
marble to be of a whole stone, and all fair marble. They pay 
in hand 5/. and the other 5/. when all is performed ; the 26tli 
October, the 2d Hen. Vlll.f 


Sir Godfrey Foljambe, Knt. son and heir of Henry Foljambe, 
was born at Walton on Easter Day, the 27th of March, 12di 
Edw. IV. 1472. The 21st July, 21st Hen. VH. the King gives 
his precept, " Whereas our trusty servant Godfrey Foljambe 
and one Roger Cook stand bound to our trusty councellor 
Sir Thomas Lovell, Knt. and others, to our use, in an obligation 
of 500 marks with Nicholas Saville and Alice Jepson, now de- 
ceased, and the obligation, forfeit, &;c. of our especial love we 
bear unto the said Godfrey, we be content to pardon a great part 
of the said 500 marks." And the King grants him power to levy 
on the executors of Nicholas Savile and Alice Jepson. 

The 12th November, 2tth Henry VII. he pays to Robert 
Blackwell 125. 8c?. for receipt of homage. 

The 2d Henry VHI. William Zouch, late of Marley, com. 
Derby, Esq. receives lOl. 6s. 8d. of Godfrey Foljambe, of Wal- 
ton, Esq. which the said William Zouch was charged with, when 
Sheriff of Derbyshire, in the Exchequer, to levy and take for a 
riot made by Gilbert Foljambe, late of Walton, and others. He 
was Sheriff 2d Hen. VHI. and gives his discharge 14th Henry 
VHI. ; this Gilbert was brother of Godfrey, and by this it should 
seem as if he was dead, and his brother paid it for him. 

The 14th Hen. VIII. by the name of Godfrey Foljambe, 
Esq. he gives to Miles Bushye, Knt. Robert Colevill, Esq. John 
Bosswell, &c. his manor of Brimington and Whittington, com, 
Derby, and lands in Chesterfield. Dated 23d of April. 

The 5th Hen. VIII. he gives to the same his manor of Ryby, 
com. Lincoln, the 27th April, and a tenement called the Angel 
in Blydi, and lands in Whiston. And die 23d April die same 
year to the same, his manor of Walton with Brampton, and 
Callow, com. Derby. 

John Leek, of Sutton-in-le dale, com. Derby, is bound to him 
in 200/. to perform covenants, die 18th April, 4th Hen. VHL

The 15th Henry VIII. 1513 he was Esqiure of the Body of 
the King, and then Thomas Wriothesley, Garter, and John 
Young, Norroy, the 19th June grant him by the name of Godfrey 
Foljambe, of Walton, com. Derby, Esq. " de Corpe du Roy," for 
Supporters or Crest of his Arms, " une Calopus, autrement dit 
Chatlonp,8" dc Or ct de Sables esquartelees, les cornes aussi," as

No. 17T. The 7th Hen. VIII. he accomplished the great ad- 
vantage to his two elder sons in procuring their marriage with 
the heiresses of Fitzwilliam as hereafter shall be related. 

I might have placed these matters relating to the heiresses of 
Fitzwilliam in the lives of their husbands, but the date of the 
transactions about them put me upon the placing them according 
to the order of years, so that when I come to treat of the sons of 
this Godfrey I shall refer to their preceding matters. 

The 8th Henry VIII. Godfrey Foljambe and Roger Foljambe 
impleaded Nicholas Croft of two messuages and 60 acres of land 
in Brampton.

Thomas Lord Cromwell writes to him, but the year is not 
set down. 

After my hearty com'endations, ye shall understand I have received 
your letter of the 19th of this present, and well perused the same, 
whereby it appears the good rule and diligent dexterity ye use to see 
such felinous persons as the Hermit (wlio was sent to me) to be appre- 
hended, and their malice repressed, thanking you heartily for the same, 
being assured that I will not fail to make report thereof to the King's 
Highness, who, I doubt not, shall have your gentle proceeding right 
acceptable. I have sent and removed the said Hermit to my Lord Stew- 
ard, with an indictment there to be brought before the Justices of Assize 
as to receive such punishment for his pernicious demeaner as the Law 
requireth, to the fearfull example of all alike. I doubt not but you will 
do therein to see justice ministered, as to right and duty towards his 
Majesty shall appertain. 

Thus fare you heartily well. Your loving friend, 

Thomas Cromwelit. 
The 12th of August (the year not expressed).

Sir Godfrey Foljambe married Katherine, daughter of John

John Herdwise, of Chesterfield, covenants with Mr. Henry Fol- 
jambe and John Leake, Esqrs. for a marriage betwixt Godfrey 
and Katherine Leake, daughter of the said John. This is not 
dated. There is a complaint before Sir Thomas Audley, Lord 
Chancellor, that Sir Godfrey Foljambe, uncle to John Leake, son 


of Sir John Leake, of Sutton, who had the tuition of the said John 
Leake, being but eight years old, and did not pay 100 marks, ap- 
pointed for portion to Katherine Leake, daughter of Sir Jolin

'■ Hallestan nnw Halstone, near Oswestry, was a ]'reci'ptory of tlie Knight Templars, 
and afterwards of Hospitallers. This was the iioiise described in tlie Monasticon as 
liaving beeu siniated in Norfolk. 


The follouing W\]\, which is the only one in the English language 
that appears in the Haghinon Cartulary, is that of William Bromshill, 
Esq. of Aston Rogers, co. Salop, who was High Sheriff of Shropshire in 
1408. It is curious, not only as a specimen of the orthography, &c. of 
the time, but as fixing very nearly the period when the present fine old 
parochial Church of VVorthen was erected. It has evidently been drawn 
up by an attorney, and I presume by John Rodenhurste, who occurs 
therein as a legatee, and was the same individual employed by the 
Abbat and Convent of Haghmon against Sir Richard le Strange, respect- 
ing the advowson of Hanmer Church, as mentioned in the note in p. 362. 

This is the laste will indentede of me, William Bromshill, 
Squier. Aboue all thinges in my testament of my meuable godes 
made contened, first I woll pray, require, and beseche al my 
feoffees in ail my londes and tentis with the appurtennces, in 
Aston Rogers and Minton, that they a noon after my decesse 
make an estate of all my londes and tentis, with the appurtefincf , 
to the Abbot and Couent of Haghmon : To have and to holde 
to the said Abbot and Couent and to ther successf to pray for 
my sowle and for the soules of myii auncestres for eiimore. Ex- 
cept that I woll that Nichas Boerley haue to him, and to his 
assignes, a tent w* the appurtennces called Wises place, sette in 
Aston Rogers aforsaid, peel of the saide londes 8c tentes ; whiche 
teiit w't the appurtennces I purchased some tyme of Adam 
Tolonge, in to the tyme the said Nichas haue arerede and re- 
ceyued of the saide tent wt the appurtennces ten markf sterlinges. 
Also I woll that my feoffes in all my londes and tentes w^ 
thappurtenances in Hope, Aston-Pigot, Worthin, Lokeley, and 
Hampton beside Cawes, anoofi after my decesse, in the beste 
wise that they can and may, selle all the said londes and tentes 
wt the appurtennces. And I woll that all the money comynge 
of the sale of the same londes w* the appurteiincC, be holly yeuen 
to the makinge of the Churche and of the Stepill of Worthin 
aforsaide. Also I woll that my feoffees in a teiit w* the appur- 
tennces in medewe,f anoofi after my decesse, make an estate of 
the said tent w* the appurtennces to John Rodenhurst ; To haue 
and to holde to the said John Rodenhurste, to his heires, and 
his assignes for eiimore, of the cheef lord of that fee, by the 
s'uice thereof due and of right accustumed. In witnesse wherof 
to bothe parties of thies my psent wille indentede, I haue sett my

King Harry, the sixth after the conquest, the seuenthe. 

The Cartulary of Haghmon Abbey, from which the foregoing extracts 
have been taken, and now in the jwssession of Mrs. Corbet of Sundorne, 
is, as conjectured in the List of Cartularies at p. 205, that which pre- 
viously belonged to Walter Barker and John Kynaston, Esqrs. The 
estates of the former, including the venerable and interesting ruins of 
Haghmon Abbey, and the domain thereto belonging, passing by the 
marriage of Amy, daughter and heiress of Thomas Barker of Haghmon, 
Esq. with Edward, father of the above John Kynaston, to the Kynastons 
of Hordley 3 and thence, by the devise of Corbet Kynaston, son of the 
above John, to Andrew Corbet of Lee, Adbright Husscy, and Sundorue, 
Esq. Transcripts of tlie Shrewsbury and Haghmon Cartularies are 
among the valuable MSS. of the late Rev. Edward Williams.

Richard Fitz Gilbert, Earl of Clare, elder brother of Gilbert surnamed 
StroiJgbovv, married the sister of Ranulf second Earl of Chester. Dug- 
dale a gives the marriage on the authority of William of Jumieges ; but 
neither writer mentions her name. It occurs in the following Charter of 
lands, in Hawkedon, Suffolk, given by the Earl her husband, in 1154, 
to the Sacrist of the Abbey of St. Edmundsbury. The Countess Chris- 
tiana and her second son, Roger, are assenting parties to this grant ; 
which is extracted from the Registrum Sacristoe of the Abbey, preserved 
in the Public Library at Cambridge.

The following curious specimen of ancient local poetry is copied from 
a small thin manuscript volume in the possession of Thomas Philip Maun- 
scll, Esq. of Thorpe Malsor, Northamptonshire, the lineal representative 
of the Hugh Mansel, of Berry End, mentioned in the poem. It is writ- 
ten in a small, cramped, and in some parts almost illegible hand, of the 
time of Charles I ; but is, I apprehend, the composition of an earlier 
period. It is followed in the volume by entries made by John Maunsell, 
Barrister at Law, then of Woodford, in Essex, but afterwards of Thorpe 
Malsor, commencing with the births, marriages, and burials of the family 
from 1539 to 160G 3 a rough genealogical sketch from Sier le jNlaunsell, 
which nearly corresponds with the poem, and is verified by references to 
deeds from s. d. to 24 Eliz. and ending with a pedigree from Richard 
Maunsell, of Chicheley, in Buckinghamshire, buried 1539, to which 
is prefixed, "Mem. Sir John Borough, being Garter King at Armes, there 


was a visitation made by Mr. Yorke and Mr. Lilly, and I being absent nt 
tlie visitation at Romford, entered my armes and pedigree as foUovveth, 
25 Sept. 1634, for wci> I paid 27s. Gd." signed " John Maunsell." 

These private documents furnish a general corroboration of the legen- 
dary tradition of the story ; but it is a most remarkable circumstance 
that almost every fact related, except the accidental murder, is confirmed 
by historical evidence from extraneous sources, as will be shown in the 
accompanying Notes. 

G. B. 

Radix Genologla Mauselline de Chichelye. 
Sier le Maunsell genuit apud Thickthorns, William, Simon, 
Roger, ut est in tabula genologia a Thoma Mausello conscripta. 

In this table here may you see 

How manye generations nowe gone we be. 

Some tyme by course we livede here, 

Wtli cark and care troubled we weare : 

But at ye laste we were soone gone. 

And soner forgotten everye one ; 

Had we not some thinge lefte behinde 

We had bene worne quite out of minde. 

But now by writing-f it may appeare 

That we sometyme in Chicheley were. 

Some riche, some pore, some simple, some wise, 

Some fortuned to good, some unfortunate thrise. 

For yt some got othar did spende. 

But blessed be God y*^ all doth sende. 

Of us sometyme, some knightes made weare, 

And in this coutrye greate rule did beare 

Ontill yt brother of brother was slayne, 

For vayne possessions & worldelye gayne. 

Then fortune begane to turne hir wheele 

And caused awayeward all to reele. 

Forthewith did Allmightye God begine 

To punishe & plague us for our synne. 

But yet at yc laste he of his grace 

Agayne in Chichelye did us place ; 

In Berrye end, & este end, seates he us sente 

That we our sinnes ther mighte repente ; 

liut when he see it would not be, 

One braunche of us eftesone cut of did he. 


But yet of his mercye for to extende 

He preferred the other in Ikrrye ende ; 

And yt they mighte repente agcayne, 

Both landf and goodf he parted in twayne, 

And for ye one he cut of y^ name 

The other he keepte wt'iouten shame. 

Wherefore remember children all 

Yt sinefull lyfe hath had a fall ; 

And that God w^h mercye his plagues did sende, 

And wtli plagues his mercye did extende, 

That we mighte once our lives amende ; 

To him he glory worlde with oute ende. 

Sier ^ the syer of us all, a man of micle grace, 

Above ye corner (as I reed) at Tickthorns^ had his place; 

This Sier did at Turvye take a wife as may appeare, 

For yt thre lovelye sisters then of Turvye ladyes weare, 

The eldest Mordane, ye second Ardes, ye 3 Mausell did take,e 

And these thre men wtli one accorde ther living^ ther did make. 

And Ardf y* so erneste was ther mindinge to abide, 

Ferste placed was uppon ye hill under ye hard wood syde. 

" Sier is doubtless intended for Saher or Seher, no uncommon name in the 12th and 
13th centuries, and the orthography is not improbably varied for the purpose of pro- 
ducing the pun excited by its synonyme. Ralph Mansel held a fee of the new feoffment 
from Gervase Paganell in 14 Hen. II. 1167, (Lib. Nig. p. 140.) ; and by deed s. d. 
with the consent of Cecily his wife, and Sehcr his son and heir, and for the souls of his 
father and mother, and his sons Gilbert, Roger, Simon, William, and Hugh, gave his 
land of '• Cuculmes ho" (qu. where ?) to Tickford priory, near Newport Pagnell, in 
Buckinghamshire. (Mon. Ang. ii. p. 912.) This grant was made in the presence of, 
and confirmed by, his lord Gervase Paganell, (ibid.) and must have been anterior 
to 1187 (33 Hen. II.) as the general confirmatory Charter from Gervase to the priory, 
in that year, includes all the men and lauds, meadow and pasture, and woods, liberties} 
and ways, of the gift of Ralph Mansel! and Cecily his wife. (Ibid. p. 911.) 

*> The manor of Tickthornes orTliickthornes in Chicheley and Hardmead, near New- 
port Pagnell, was part of the original endowment of Tickford Priory by Fulke Paga- 
nell. (Ibid. i. p. 686'.) 

' The "three lovely sisters " were the daughters of William de Alneto, and sisters 
and coheiresses of Hugh de Alneto, of Turvey in Bedfordshire and Maidford in North- 
amptonshire. Of this family an ample account will be found in that exceedingly 
rare and splendid work, Halstead's Genealogies, and in the portion of the History of 
Northamptonshire now in the press. The matches with Mordane, or Mordaunt, and 
Ardres, are historically correct. William de Alneto gave to Eustace le Mordaunt (an- 
cestor of the Earls of Peterborough) with Alice his eldest daughter a moiety of all the lands 
of his vill of Turvey, to hold by the service of half a fee, (Halstead, p. 447.) and Hugh 
de Alneto gave to Richard, the son of his sister Sarah, a moiety of his land of Turvey, 
free from all service save what belonged to the King for so much of tho said fee ; 
(ibid. p. 13.) which Richard, by the name of Richard dc Ardres, sold to his cousin 



And Mordane yt soe dealye was to the y'^ him w^li stoode, 

Placed was in ye midle vale under y^selfe same woode. 

And Sier le Maiisell was, accordinge to his will, 

Placed nere unto y*^ toppe of y^ other hill/^ 

This Sier ther a sone begotte, & Willia ^ did him name, 

Who did his mother ther succeed inheritinge y^ same ; 

For when his mother buried was, & Willia of age pleine, 

Then did his father suffer him at Turvye still remeane. 

And he himselfe at Tickethornes bood f wher was his great delight. 

And yet he had at eche place y*^ companye of ij knightes. 

For as ser Mordan & ser Ardf at Turvye dwelt him nere, 

Soe at Tickthornes by him dwelt ser Gedney & ser Bublere ; 

This to be true that I here wrote all ye yt doute I praye 

That ye will take y^ paynes to reede y" booke called Domesday. 

Then Witt did at Turvye get a soe Sapso by name, 

W^hom Sier did to Tickthornf take & gave to him y^ same. 

For when Sier was dedde and goiie Sampson at Tickthornes dwelte, 

And William like a good father wtl» Turvye was contente. 

This Sampson did a soe begett, and John S he did him call. 

Whom he broughte upp in knowledge greate, & in ye vertues all. 

This Jhon, in knowledge of y^ lawe who lerned was right well, 

Hen rye ye therd cheefe Justice made of Englande I you tell. 

And after one of ye xij peer, as chronicles witnesse, 

Those he was in ye wholl realme to sett at quietnesse ; 

William le Mordaunt, son of Eustace, liis share in the mill of Turvey. (ibid. p. 453.) 
The existence of the third sister is apocryphal, and the poem is the only authority, 
if it can be deemed such, for the marriage with Maunseil ; which, however, is not 
unsupported by presumptive evidence. It will subsequently appear that the family cer- 
tainly had an interest in Turvey ; that local spots within the lordship were designated 
by their name ; and the variation in the terms of the grants from William de AIneto the 
father, and Hugh the son, must not be forgotten. The former expressly includes a 
moiety of his vill by the service of half a fee; consequently a moiety only of the vill 
would descend to Hugh; his grant is only of a moiety of his Ia7ids, and the remaining 
moiety of his lands, or quarter of the vill, might pass to Maunseil with the third sister. 

"I Eustace de Mordaunt, for the souls of himself and his wife Alice (AIneto), granted 
to Caldwell Priory, near Bedford, lands in Turvey abutting upon the way which leads to 
the Church of Turvey over " Mansellshull." (Halstead, p. 449.) 

" H^lliam Mancell attested more than one conveyance of lands in Turvey from 
Eustace le Mordaunt. (Halstead, p. 14 and 448.) 'Abode. 

K This John is an interpolation introduced for the embellishment of the tale. There 
was, however, a contemporary John Mansell, ancestor of the Lords Mansel, (Collins's 
Peerage (1741 ) vol. iv. p. 266.) who was Lord Keeper of the Great Seal, not Chief 
Justice of England, and it seems the poet was not able to resist the temptation of 
appiopiiating l>im. 


Wherof after ensued greate strife, for y^ y^ barrens wente 

Wtli ye comons agaynst y^ kinge in Oxford parlamte. 

This John, then at Thickthornes had ij sons as doth appeare, 

The youngest Willia, y^ eldeste was Thomas to him full dere ; 

This Thomas then at man's estate his father's parte did take, 

And wth ye comons did avise y^ barrons warre to make. 

To Nottinghame strayghte waye he wente, as Polidore^i expresse, 

Wher at y^ last he taken was & put in greate distresse. 

But when y^ barrons warre was done & he delivered was, 

Eftesone herto his father's home w^li him his time to 

She was some time one Tickthorne's wife, and came of saving 
Woodei she was for y*^ Thomas unto his father came, [blud. 

For then she had here doughter dere betrothed to Willia, 
Meaninge therby to gett Thickthornf to y^ l)lud agayne 
Of her husband y^ some tymewas, by joyning of them twayne. 
W^h thinge she now perceaved well she could not bring to passe, 
For yt it was her husbandf minde to geve it to Thomas. 
Wherfore she sought meanes all she could this Thomas for to kill, 
And her daughter at Thickthorne's place, such was her wicked 
She never lefte until Willia w^h him a huntinge wente, [will. 

And eche of them ther standingf took with hisboereadye bente. 
And when the game chanced to come to Thomas somewhat nye, 
Then eche of them aimed at the game ther arrowes to let flye. 
And Thomas did the game then strike, but stroake he was w^^^all, 
His brother's arrow did him hitt y' to y^ grounde he fall ; 
Then <owe alasse,' cried all men ther, 'what cruell chance is this, 
That in pastime of brothers twayne y^ one now thus slayne is,' 
And one strayghte way to ther father went & sayd, 'Of yo"" sones 

Alas (good lord) by cruell chauceone hathe y^ other slayne.' 
'Th k (qouth he) Lord why live I to se this woefull daye ; 
Yf this be true, the eldeste is then slayne I dare well say ; 
The yonger hathe y^ marke it selfe then hit wherat he shett. 
But yet (by . . . . ) 1 assure y« game he never gett.' 
Forthw'l' his father in greate rage his landf conveyde awaye. 
And gave Tickthornes to Tickford house for his soulle for to pray. 
Soe he in places manye moe bestoed as he thoughte goode. 
And litle lefte his sonne Willia he was w*'' him soe woode.> 

'' I'olydoie N'irgil. ' Of an ill-tfn»iier, angry, '' Tlien ? 


But at ye lasle, by meanes of frendf, Turvye he lefte his wife, 
And y' Willia should have y^ same when she ended her life. 
But Willia . . . unthriftie still, soe sone as his frendf wente, 
To Mordane strayghte waye Turvye sold ^ & all y*^ he had, spente. 
And in Chichelye likewise he sold land ^ w^h cae by his wife, 
And shortly e had her nothinge lefte, had he not lefte his life- 
But at ye laste when he gone was, litle y* did remeane 
Betwene her sones Hughe & Willia she parted them in twayne. 
Thus when Mansell wtl» Thickthornes blud mingled, Tickthornes 

he loste, 
And Turvye sold then quite awaye, so maried to his coste ; 
But thoughehe be fro Turvye thus with Ardf '" worne qite awaye, 
Yet Ardf wod & MaCisell hill ther names beare to this daye. 
And thoughe he have thus Thickthornes loste, yet for remeb^nce 
The p'ore for him did daylye praye soe long as a bestode, [good, 
In Tickthorne's Chappell mas he songe untill y*^ it was done, 
And after y* his . . . . sayde at churche in Chichelye towne. 
Thus Mansellf land was made awaye, unknone be of his nae, 
Save y* when men olde writingf reed y^y chance .... on y^ sae. 
Thus women more wicked then ought was never well contente 
Untill she had her purpose wrought, w^h we may all repente. 
Thus God justelye his plagues did sende, desyring quit the place, 
As he had done, ther stocke alsoe, save y^ he shewed grace. 
But w"^!! justice he mercye shewed, & Hughe in Buriende" 
Ferste place he did, the Willia is placed in Estende ; 
From Estend nowe y^ stocke is gone. Si nae worne qite awaye, 
Save yt wher Willia dwelte caled is, Witt Mansellf at this daye." 

* Substituting Sampson for John, as the father of Thomas and William, this portion 
of the narrative is completely authenticated by unquestionable evidence ; for U^illiani son 
of Sampson le Mansell of Tiirvy by deed dated on the day of the Annunciation of the 
blessed Virgin (25 Marchj 15 Edw. I. (1287) sold to William, son of William le Mor- 
daunt, all his lands in " Chechle," (Halstead, p. 456'.) and though the conveyance of 
Mansell's lands iu Turvey is not extant, yet the fact is placed beyond doubt by the license 
which William le Mordaunt had in 25 Edw. I. (1297) to enclose his wood of " Mancels- 
grove," with other lands in Turvey, and convert them into a park (ibid. p. 457). 

"' Thomas D'Ardres in 49 Edw. III. (1375) conveyed to Robert Mordaunt of Turvey 
all his lands of Turvey, in exchange for lands at Shephale, Herts, (ibid. p. 471.) 

" From Hugh of Berry End have descended two branches, both now seated in North- 
amptonsliire ; the elder represented, as already stated, by Tlioraas Philip Maunsell, Esq. 
of Thorp Malsor ; and the second by John Christopher Mansell, Esq. of Cosgrave.

The third day of Aprill, Anno Dom. 1638, betweene eleuen 
& twelue of the Clocke in the Forenoone, by y'^ spetiall mercye 
& prouidence of God, my wife was happily safely deliuered of 
her first Child & first borne sonne Thomas, who was Christ- 
ened the first day of October following at London, in Aldersgate 
Church : his Godfathers were, my father Tho. Hales, Esq. and

Buckinghamshire ; his Godmother, my Sister Mi^'^ Elizabeth 

' A Breviary or book of Hours, and Calendar, written and illuminated in the Low 
Countries about the middle of the 15th century. It belonged in the reign of Henry the 
Eighth to the Harlestone family, as appears by the entries in the Calendar above copied. 
At fol. 18, is the autograph of •' M'res Margaryte Harlyston'." It was probably pre- 
sented by a member of this family to Queen Mary, in whose possession it afterwards was, 
as is evident from the royal arms and the letters M. R. stamped on the cover. 

l' On a slip of paper prefixed to a volume of miscellaneous papers which formerly 
belonged to R. Hales. At p. 147, are some memoranda by him in which he mentions 
his sister Dorothy, his brothers Samuel, Thomas, Luke, aud Stephen, his brothers 
Loaguevile and Short, and his sister Kennett.

Colne. Cole's MS. vol. 59, is a transcript of Mrs, Holgate's Cartulary. 

Essex. Colchester. In 1 784 the Cartulary of St. John's was in 

possession of the Hon. Philip Yorke. Lord Hardwicke's name ought to 

have been attached to the original, not to the transcript ; but on inrpiiry 

it should seem that the Cartulary is, at present, missing. 

P. 200. Coventry. For " Archdeacon's office," read " City Archives."

have possessed a Cartulary of St. Peter's. 

P. 205. Shrop. Haghmon. Dele the reference to MS. Harl. 2188, 
which only contains a few Excerpts. The Cartulary noted as belonging 
to ^A'^ alter Barker, John Kynaston, and Mrs. Corbet, proves, as conjec- 
tured, to be one and the same volume ; a transcript of it was in the pos- 
session of the late Rev. Edw. Williams. (See before, in p. 374.) 

Bedf. Harewood. This MS. of Walter Clavcl, belonged, in 

17G3, to J. West. There is an abridgement of it in MS. Lansd. 391. 

Clouc. Hayles. MS. Harl. 3725. In reality, the first portion of 
this MS. is only a Chronicle of Hayles, and the second is a Chronicle of 
A hereon wey, intermixed with a few Charters. 

P. 207. Norf. Langley. The Cartulary, stated to belong to the Pub- 
lic Library, Cambridge, is, in reality, in the Bodleian Library, and marked 
Bodl. 242. (1926-.) 

Glouc. Lanthony. The late Lord Scudamore appears to have pos- 
sessed six vols, including " Lanthony," " Prima," and '^ Secunda." 

P. 208. Shrop. LilleshuU. It is supposed that Sir Richard Leveson 
exchanged the Cartulary of Lilleshull to Sir Richard Lee for that of 
Shrewsbury abbey, between the years 1636 and 1638. (Blakeway's 
History of Shrewsbury, ii. 138.) When Stevens compiled his Supple- 
ment to the Monasticon, the Lilleshull Cartulary was in the possession 
of John Smith, Esq. of Acton Burnell, whose father Sir Edward Smith, 
Bart, had married the daughter and coheir of Sir Richard Lee, 



P. 11. In lines 32, 33, the names of Robert and Thomas arc put 
for tliose of Edward ajid John, who were both Earls of Kent, 

P. 47, line 5, for Swarston, read Snarston. 

P. 55, line 8, for ^A^issington, read Nassington. 

P. 92. It is probable that Beatrix Lady Talbot was a member of the 
Portuguese family of Pinto, which is the only house in Portugal that 
bears the five crescents in saltier as displayed on her seal. 

P. 228. Mr. Lloyd here states, from Domesday Book, that " Roger, 
the son of Corbet, held of Earl Roger, all that tract of land since known 
by the name of the hundred of Ford, with part of Chirbury and Con- 
dover hundreds, which in the whole consisted of nine and thirty manors 
or hamlets." The number of manors or vills in the County of Salop 
and borders of Wales adjoining, stated in Domesday Book to be held by 
Roger son of Corbet, is only twenty-four ; of which, eleven are situated 
in that part of Shropshire which now constitutes the hundred of Ford, 
There is, however, every reason to believe that the Roger who held 
" Ministrehe," ''Alretone," and "Alberberie" under Earl Roger de 
Montgomery was the same individual as Roger son of Corbet. His 
brother Robert, son of Corbet, also held fifteen manors or vills ; of 
which three only he within the same hundred, nearly all the others 
being witliin the hundred of Chirbury. 

The manor of Ford itself, whence the name of the hundred, was not 
in possession of either of the brothers, being retained by Earl Roger de 
Montgomery in his own hands, as a reference to Domesday Book 
will show. G. M. 

P. 254. The two pedigrees in this page both represent the heiresses of 
Creuker or Crevecoeur, and their descendants ; but the names are thrown 
much out of place. The following table of their true positions has been

of Brightwell, co. Suff. by whom he had issue Edmund and Elizabeth. 
MS. Add. (Br.Mus.) 5524, f. 94. 


P. 279. In the entry under iii. kl. Jul. the name of the Duchess of 
Somerset is clearly an error of the writer for Margaret Countess of 
Richmond and Derby. 

P. 283. Thomas Dannet, S.T.P. was Dean of AVindsor and Almoner 
to King Edward IV. See a fragment of his epitaph in St, George's 
chapel, printed in Ashmole's Berkshire. 

P. 295. Pedigrees of Noble Families related to the Blood 
Royal. — These Pedigrees are written in two or three hands, and the 
latter portion of them appear, undoubtedly, to be in the hand-writing of 
Sir Thomas Wriothesley, Garter King of Arms, who died in 1534 ; as 
may be seen by comparing similar Pedigrees in his hand-writing, in 
MS. Add. 5530, MS. Harl. 1417, and a Paper written by him in 
MS. Add. 6113. A few corrections and additions, gleaned from these

The following Letter, copied from the original, concerns some of the 
parties whose names occur in the above Pedigree : 

Cousyn Trevylion, I com'aunde ine unto you in as herty maner as I 
can, and understand that upon my late vvUiug unto you for taking hede 
unto the Kinges game w'^in the forest of Exmore, ye have right well 
endevoured you for the good keping of the same ; for the which I am 
right hertely well contented w* you, and pray you of yr like contynuance 
of the same. Howe soo be it I am enformed that of late a little grugge 
is fallen bitwene my brother Sir Hugh Luttrell and you, for that he 
hunted of late in the oute wods of the said forest, and therupon a couple 
of liounds were taken ujj by s'vants of yo^s from his s'vants. After that, 
Cousyn, inasmoche as my said broth'r Luttrell is a borderer of the said 
forest, and that ye knowe he hath maried my sister, and the man whome 
I do love tenderly, my minde is and desire unto you that ye shuld have 
an yghe unto hym above ail others in those p'ties. And that when it 
shall like hym to kyll a dere or to hunt for his disport, that ye suffer 
hym soo to do I pray you as hartely as I can, Witen at Grenewich the 
XX daie of Feverer. 

'"And I pray you, Cousyn, let my said broder take his disporte, and if 
he list, let hym kyll one dere in somer and a nother in vvynter heraftcr, 
" To my Cousyn Yo"" Cousin, 

^ir John Trevylion, Knight. Giles Daubney." 

This Giles Daubeney was Lord Daubcney, Chamberlain to Henry the 
Seventh, and commanded part of the troops in the engagement with 
Lord Audlcy on Blacklieath, June 22, 1495. His sister, by the mother, 
married Sir Hugh Luttrell, who was one of the Knights of the Bath, 
created at the Coronation of Elizabeth, Queen of Hen. VIL 

This Forest of Exmoor was lately sold by Government to Mr. Knight, 
who has inclosed and improved a great part of it. W. C. T.
