.^lUCStVl).— The family of Beiitinck is known to have been settled, as 
early as the thirteenth centur\', in the Duchy of Guelder, and they ap|jear 
to have derived their name from the castle of Benting or Bentinck, between 
Zutphen and Deventer. Their pedigree has been traced in detail thirteen 
generations prior to William Bentinck's .settlement in England in the seven- 
teenth century, and it may be noted that there still flourish in Holland 
se\eral branches of the of Bentinck. The English branch descends 
from the fourth son of Freiheer Bernhard Bentinck of Diepenheim, in the 
province of Overyssel, who died in i668. He was the father of nine 
children, amongst whom was the first Earl of Portland, with whom we 
accordingly commence the pedigree ; — 

Woodstock and Baron Cirencester, 
being so created 9 April 1689. Born 
20 July 1649; died, "after a fever of 
twelve days", at his seat at Bulstrode 
Park, Buckinghamshire, 23 November 
1709, and was buried 3 December 1709, at Westminster, "in the vault at 
the east end of King Henry VII's chapel", and was succeeded by his 
eldest son as below. 

The Earl of Portland, founder of the House of Bentinck in England, 
was the fourth son of Bernhard Bentinck of Diepenheim, in Overyssel. He 
was Page of Honour and Gentleman of the Bedchamber to William, Prince 
of Orange, whom he accompanied to England on that prince's accession 
to the English throne as William III in 16S8. He was sworn of the Privy 
Council 14 February 1689, Keeper of tlie Privy Purse 1689, Superintendent of 
the Royal Gardens 8 June 1689. 

Prior to this, when in Holland, he was in command of a Dutch 
Regiment of Horse Guards 1672; Bailiff and Stadtholder of Breda i'i74; 
Bailiff and Stadtholder of Lingen 1675; Lieutenant Forester in Holland and 
West Friesland 16S1 ; created D.C.L. Oxon. 1670; Envoy to England 4 June 
1677 and July 1685, and to Berlin in 1685. 

He was appointed Lieut. -General in Ireland 1 July 1690, and was 
engaged in the battle of the Boyne ; Commissioner of Greenwich Hospital 
20 February 1695 ; elected 19 February and installed 15 March 1697 as Knight 
of the Garter; Ranger of Windsor Great Park 20 May 1697 to 7 May 1700; 
General of Horse 1 June 1697; Keeper of the Little Park of Windsor 
13 January 169S to 7 May 1700; Plenipotentiary to France 29 December 1697 ; 
Ambassador to discuss terms of treaty with Louis XIV 1 July 1699. 

In the Revolution William Bentinck took an active part, being tiie 
confidential agent of the Prince, and continued to be his trusted friend to

the end of his life. As was to be expected, he received many grants from the 
King, and preferment from time to time for his services, A biograph}- of the 
Earl of Portland becomes of necessity the political history of his time, and can 
be but briefly summarized here. After the death of King William, the Earl's 
"visits to his native country seem to have recurred with their usual regularity, 
and occasionall}' to have been combined with confidential business of a public 
nature. . . His domestic life had probably continued to be a happy one, as 
it had been in the days of his great friend who had taken so warm an interest 
in the children of his family. The\' were numerous and settled parti}' in 
England, partly in his native land. . . . Patriotism, as well as friendship 
and loyalty, was prominent amongst the motives which prompted his services. 
He was wholly unskilled in flattery, and, according to Burnet, 'seemed to have 
the art of creating manj' enemies and not one friend'. The Earl of Portland 
was, during William's reign, 'probably the most unpopular man in this country'. 
In requital of the unpopularity to which he was exposed, Portland's name 
will always be remembered as inseparable from the histor}' of the most 
important political transactions of William Ill's reign." 

The Earl of Portland married, (i) i Feb. 167S, .i ////(■, daughter of 
Sir Edward Villicrs, Knight-Marshal; she was Maid of Honour tn the

The third Duke of Portland, who succeeded his father at the age of 24, 
had entered Parliament as M.P. for Weobley two years before, and became a 
membei- of Lord Rockingham's first Government in 1765, as Lord Chamberlain. 
He took an active part in politics, belonging to the Whig party, as was 
natural, and, in 1783, became Prime Minister, with Lord North and Fox as 
Secretaries of State, but this coalition Cabinet fell the same yeai', and for 
a time he left the active duties of political leader of the opposition to Fox 
and Burke, retiring to his country seat. The tendencies of the French 
Revolution alarmed the great Whig houses, and the Duke of Portland, after 
some hesitation, joined Pitt's Government. He himself was Home Secretary 
from 1794 to iSoi, and though the repressive acts brought about by dread of 
the French Revolution placed an enormous power in the Duke's hands, his 
administration of the Home Office "was marked bj* no straining of his powers 
and by no consequent unpopulaiity of the Government". He has been 



described as a "tolerant man of the world, not a man of great ability, but of 
great experience, who knew the advantage of leaving the expression of public 
opinion as free as possible". 

In Addington's administration he became Lord President of the Council, 
continuing as such until January 1S05. He held no office in the "Ministry of 
all the Talents", but in 1807 he again became Premier, he being the only man 
under whom the rivals Canning and Lord Castlereagh would serve. He was 
old and feeble, but from a high sense of public duty, though unwillingly, 
accepted the burden. The duel on Wimbledon Common between those two 
btatesmen resulted in their resignation, and the Duke, whose health was 
rapidly declining, insisted on retiring ; and his death followed a few weeks later. 

"Few statesmen have suffered more obloquy." Yet he has been 
described in the Dictionary of National Biograpliy as a "good administrator, 
tolerant in his exercise of" great and extraordinary powers, careful in details, 
and yet not wanting in broad statesmanlike views. In private life he was in 
every way admirable." 

In ciinscquencc i.>f his descent fnmi the e'avcnclish Uukes of New- 
castle thnHii;h his mother, he, b>- Rnyal Licence, 5 Oct. 1801, assumed for 
himself and issue the additional surname and arms of Cavendish. 

lie married, at Burlington, Piccadilly, 8 November 1766, 
Porn/I/v C,i:'ci/(iis/i, only daughter of William, 4th Duke of Devon-

dau. of Arthur, 1st Earl of Gosford. 

lie entered the army, in 1791, as an ensign in the Coldstream 
Guards, becoming Captain in 2nd Light Dragoons 1792, and, on 
20 iVIay 1794, Lieut. -Col. of the 24th Light Dragoons. He served in 
the Netherlands and in North Italy in 1799 to 1801. From 1803 to 
1807 he was Governor of Madras, from which he was recalled in con- 
sequence of the mutiny at Vellore, caused, it was thought, by the 
regulations introduced " by the Government. Subsequently, having 
been promoted as Major-General, he took part in the Peninsular War, 
and commanded a brigade at Corunna. From 181 1 to 1814 he was 
envoy to, practically Governor of, Sicily. At the close of the war he was 
13 years unemployed, but, in 1827, was appointed Governor of Bengal, 
becoming, in 1S33, the first Governor-General of India. He resigned 
the Government 1S35 "much regretted by Europeans and natives", 
and a statue in his honour was erected at Calcutta. "There can be 
no question that Bentinck's Indian administration must be regarded 
as a marked era in the history of Indian progress. He was the first 
British statesman entrusted with the government of India who de- 
clared and acted upon the policy of governing India in the interests ot 
the people of that country."

He was educated at home, and entered the loth Hussars, as 
Cornet, in 1S19. He entered political life as secretaiy of Mr. Canning, 
who had married his maternal aunt, and was so engaged fjr three 
j'ears. "Tall and well made, both in grace and figure, a model of 
manl\- beauty, quick of eye and action, he was distinguished by his 
skill in every kind of sport." He inherited a taste for racing, com- 
bining with it "a fine sense of honour which made his patronage of 
the sport a benefit for racing society". On the turf he was most 
successful. Later he joined the 2nd Life Guards, but in 1S2S became 
M.P. for King]s Lynn, which he represented till .his death. 

He was, "as became his birth, a Whig of the Revolution era". 
He voted for the Catholic Emancipation Bill, and upheld generally the 
principles of the Reform Bill. In 1845 he became an active opponent 
of Sir Robert Peel, and approved of the Corn Laws, taking an active 
part in organizing the Protectionists as an independent party, and, in 
1847, sold his racing stud that he might devote himself to politics.

It seems probable, though it has not been definitely determined, that 
William Gregory and Jane Shelton were parents of the Robert Gregory, 
with whom the pedigree commences, and that Doroth)- Gregor)-, who 
married John Rowe in 1757, was sister of William Gregory. 

The ascertained pedigree commences thus : — 

ROBERT GREGORY, of Nottingham, of the firm of Gregor\- and 
Son, wharfingers, coal, and bone merchants, died at Nottingham in 1824, 
"advanced in life". Will proved at York 21 May 1824, by his wife /«/w 
lUirnayd. His children were : — 

i. Robert Gregory, of whom next, 
ii. Charlotte, mar. Robert Wilson, of Beastmarket Hill, Nottingliam, draper, 

and left issue. 
iii. Maria, married, before iii24, John Shel/on, of Nottingham, 
iv. Harriet, married Mr. Hall, a surgeon in Sheffield. He was brother of 
Samuel Hall, and of the famous surgeon, Marshall Hall. The lives 
of both are given in the Did. Nat. Biog. They were sons of Robert 
Hall, of Basford, bleacher. 

ROBERT GREGORY, of Nottingham, in partnership with his father 
as wharfingers, coal, and bone merchants, born at Nottingham 27 November 
1793, was baptized there, and died at Leenside 16 November 1824, aged 31 ; 
buried at Nottingham. Will proved at York 8 October 1825 ; married, 
by licence, at St. Mary's, Nottingham, by the Rev. Robert Burra, curate, 
24 January 1817, Amie Sop/iia, daughter of Alderman Joseph Oldkiio-io, 
grocer, of Angel Row, Nottingham [Sheriff, 1769; and twice Maj-or, 1792 
and 1799], by his wife Mary Roberts, who died at Leenside 28 November 
1824. She was born 16 March 1789, and died 15 Jul_\- 1824, aged 35 )-ears, 
and was buried at Nottingham. 

Mr. Gregory's funeral sermon, afterwards published, was preached by the 
Rev. John Hannah at Halifax Place Chapel, and the preface states that "the 
death of Mr. and Mrs. Gregory in the prime of life, and the full flow of 
temporal prosperity, had excited an unusual degree of public feeling". A note 
states that "within the space of sixteen months five died under the same roof, 
Mr. Gregory sen., an infant, Mrs. Gregory jun., Mr. Gregor}' jun., and 
Mr. Oldknow". It may be observed that the large brick mansion of the 
Gregorys still exists on Leenside, between Meadows Street and Malt Mill 
Lane, as well as their wharf in Trent Street, near by.

SlUCStni. — The family of Wadsworth, or Wordsworth, as some branches spell the name, was 
ancientl}- a Yorkshire one, and e\-identl\- deri\ed its name from a place called Wadsworth, pre- 
sumably the township of that name in the parish of Halifax, in the West Riding of that County. 
The earliest mention of the name which has been noted is that of John de Wades\\(jrth, who was 
a knight of the shire for the County of Nottingham in 25 Edward III, i.e.. in 1351. We find 
also a Robert de Wadesworth assessed for the poll tax at that place in 2 Richard II, 137S. The 
will of Thomas W'adesworth, of Tevelb}-, was proved at Lincoln in 1580, and so far this is the 
earliest known connection with that county. This branch of the family was settled at Cla_\'pole 
in Lincolnshire in the latter part of the seventeenth century. The first ancestor, so far as at 
pre.sent ascertained, was : —

.^lUCStriJ. — Recent researches into the history of the Sanda_\- famil\- shows that the\- were 
settled in Cotgrave .some three hundrcfl years ago, but how much earlier is at present not known. 
The spelling and Sandies, of the two earliest entries we find in the Cotgrave register. 



would suggest that it is a variant uf the name Sandys, also found in Nottint^hamshire at that 
date, but as the name seems to have been spelt uniformly without a final j- from 1613 to the 
present time, it seems probable that Sanda\- and Sand_\'s are distinct families. It ma}- be well 
to note that in the sixteenth century there was an armigerous family of Sanda\" in Devon, though 
we ha\e no t-vidence connecting Ihcin with the Nottinghamshire Sanday.s. 

The name of Sanday is doubtless uf local ori 
^\■ith an\' particular localit\\ though we find .Sand\ 
Bardsley's Eiio-lis/i Snr/Mwrs notJs the occurrence < 

jin, but it is impossible to connect the famil\' 

in Bedfordshire, in Doiiicsdirv Sandeia, and 

f Xicliolas de Sand\-e in Huntingdonshire in 



une IJi 



"The surname .Sanday is pretty certainly fruni a place-name, compounded of the \\o\\\ snini 
and of the word (Old Norse cy. Old Engligh eg', Ig, Old Nortliumbriaii en) which is connnonl_\' tran- 
slated "island", but (like the German true, which is etymologically identical) could be applied to a 
piece of land close to a river. The form of the name affords no sufficient indication to show whether 
it is Old Norse {Saiid-iy) or Old Mercian {Saii(/-Pg: as place-names chiefly survive in the dative 
or locative, we may write Snntf-c-ge ; the^ was pronounced asv). There were probably many places 
in England, both iii the .Scandinavian and purely Anglian districts, that had this name. It need not 
have been a village that was the origin of the surname. .\ny place, inhabited or not, that answered 
to the description, would be called a-/ S<v/(/t'iir ; and a man who built a house at such a place would 
naturallv take his surname from it.'" 

istcrs thi 

.\t Cotgrave w c find from ll 
seems to ha\e been twice married, extending o\er 
to be imperfect in the middle of the seventeenth 
hardly doubt that Samuel Sanda\-, who died in 

• entries of the famil)- of Robert Sanday. who 
the period 161 2 to 1637. The Registers seem 
century, as is too often the case, but we can 
701, was his descendant, most probabl)' the 

grandson. This Samuel .Sanday, whose wife L}'dia [perhaps Kettleburn, see p. 40] survived him 
and took out letters of administration to his estate, was presumably the of that Samuel 
Sanda\- with whom the following pedigree commences: —

OBrabe^aw of (Uothng^am, 

WILLIAM BRADSHAW, n{ Carisbroukc House, The Park, 
Nottingham. Mr. Bradshaw, who wa.s born in F"letcher Gate, Nottingham, 
21 April 1836, wa.-^ educated at Lincohi, and became a, entering 
the office of the A'ottiiighaiii Journal in 1850, joining as partner in 1866. 
He founded the Leicester Daily Post, the only morning paper in that town, 
in 1870, and withdrew from the proprietorship of that paper in 1877 and 
from the Nottiiigliaiii Journal \n 1888, and since then has ceased to be con- 
nected with journalism. Mr. Bradshaw was President of the Nottingham 
Dispensary 1893-4 and 1898 ; President of the Nottingham Naturalists' 
Society 1904; President of the General Hospital 1906-7 ; President of 
Bromle\- House Librar}- 1898-9, and 1904; Member of the Thoroton 
Societ\- and the Geologists' Association ; Member of Council for several 
\ears of the Nottingham University College, and of the Free Library and 
Natural Hi.story Museum ; Trustee of the Nottingham Blue Coat School, 
and a Governor of the Wood School at Woodborough, Notts. Mr. Bradshaw 
takes an active interest in the Medical Charities of Nottingham, and also, 
for man\- )-ears, was a Trustee of Saunderson's Charity, with which the 
famil}- have been connected for over 100 \-ears. 

Mr. Bradshaw is unmarried. 

;5llUCStn).— The liradshaws' of Nottingham come from Stretton, in 
the parish of Great l^udworth, in Cheshire, from which also came another 
well-known Nottingham famih', the Lowes of Highfield, Lenton, Notts. 
Stretton, which is in Bucklow Hundred, adjoining Macclesfield Hundred, 
anciently belonged to the Starke\- family, having been granted to Richard 
Starkey in the time of King John, which ultimatel)- divided into two 
branches, Starkey of the Nether Hall, and Starke_\- of the Over Hall. "The 
Upper or Over Hall is supposed to have passed in marriage to the l^rad- 
shaws, b}' whose representatives it was sold to Mr. Peter Dutton, of 
Warrington, the pre.sent proprietor, 181 5." See Ormerod's Cheshire, i, 664. 
The earlier pedigree of the Bradshaws of Stretton has not been 
traced out in detail, and it is not possible at present to show the connection 
which ver}' possibly exists between them and aii\' other Cheshire Bradshaws, 
or, indeed, the exact line of descent of the Nottingham family from that of 
the Stretton Bradshaw.s. But in the parish church of St. Mary, Nottingham, 
is a tablet with the following inscription: — 

"Sacred to the memory of Joii.n Braush.wv, second son of Joh\ 
Bradshaw, Esq., late of Stretton, in the county of Cheshire, who departed 
this life on the 27th day of August 1822, aged 67 years." 

' The name of Bi-adsliaw IS not uncommon in Cheshire, and Ormerods History of that 
county gives a detailed pedigree of Bradsliavv of Marple, tracing the descent from Henry 
Bradshaw of Bradshaw, in Derbyshire, whose grandson, Henry Bradsliaw, purchased Marple 
Hall, in Macclesfield Hundred, from the Stanleys, in 1606, Irom which tamily came John 
Bradshaw the regicide, and there are many entries of the name amongst the list of Wills at 
Chester. The pedigree of the Nottingham Bradshaws has not been investigated further 
than is shown above.

.^InCCStvn. -The name <..f VMiwcll, which is cvidentlv of local origin, is found in Notting- 
hamshire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Rutland, Lssc.x, Bedford, Hertfordshire, Middlesex, Surre)', and 
in Staffordshire, but it is not probable that the various bearers of the name have a common 
origin. There is a tradition in Mr. Ashwell's family that they came from Ashwell Thorpe, 
Norfolk, but the Parish Registers around there, which have been searched, do not contain 
references to the name. However that may be, it is certain that Ashwells were settled in 
Nottinghamshire at an early date. The earl)- Assize Rolls mention a John Ashwell, disseized 
of land at Morton in \X^--,\ and in the sixteenth ccntur\- Ashwell Hall in Morton was solrl to 
Sir Roger (oopcr. 

.At C<iddington, near .Newark, a famil\- of Ashwell held land and resided there from the 
reign of Richard H until recent times ; a fine old Manor House, and also Hall, exist there, with 
Ashwell names built iiL John Ashwell is mentioned immediately after the Prior of Thurgarton 
in connection with a chantry founded by Henry de Coddington in that village. W^ills of the 
Coddington Ashwells are extant from 1549. It ma\- be that the tradition claiming for the 
Ashwells of Shelford a common origin with those of Coddington is c(_irrect, although at present 
we ha\'e no ex'iflence to confirm it. 

SoiiK- .\sh wells were settled in Shelton, near Newark, before the end of the fifteenth centur\-. 
Henry .Asshcwell of Shelton is inentitmed in the inquisition jxist mortem of William Staunton, 
in January 1497-8. Robert .Xshwvll was presented to the Rectory of Shelton in .April 1505, 
and was buried in the chancel of that church in Ma)- 1507. His will is at ^'ork. 

The pro\en pedigree of the .Nottingham Ashwells can be traced back to the seventeenth 
centin')-, and we connnence the |)edigree with : —

;3lurStVl_). — The pedigree of this famil)' has not been tiefinitcly traced 
further back than the earl)- part of the eighteenth century, but it seems 
likely tliat the Wilcockson famil}- came from Derbjshire, for the list of 
Wills proved at Lichfield record many of the name of Wilcockson and 
Wilcocks, spelt in various ways, during the sixteenth and seventeenth 
centuries. Thomas Wilcoxson occurs in 1556, and James Wilcoxson in 
1558. Some Wilcocksons were settled in Newark-upon-Trent in the 
sixteenth centur}-, and the parish register of Newark records the burial 
there of Margarett Wilcokessonne on 8 Dec. 1600, age 46, and of Robarte 
Wilkcok.ssonne on 19 April 1600, age 44, but as there are no further entries 
of the name till the eighteenth centin-\-, it is not safe to assume that the\- were 
related to the famil_\- with which we are now dealing. The first ascertained 
ancestor was:— 

I. JAMES WILCOCKSON of Newark, whose wife Am/c, who 
died 10 C)ctober 1 74 1, was binied in the na\-e of Newark Parish Church.

distinguished chemist, who settled in England about 16S0, and became the first 
professor of chemistry in the University of Cambridge in 16S3. He was 
author q{ Medulla Cliyntiae, published at Dantzig in 16S2, which went through 
several editions. He gave private tuition at Cambridge in chemistry and 
pharmacj-, and in 1703 his labours were recognised by his University when 
a grace passed the Senate for investing him with the title of Professor of 
Chemistry, and he was lecturing on pharmacy at Queens' College in 1705. 
Later he went to reside at Newark-upon-Trent, and was buried there 26 Jan. 
1712-3. His will, dated 19 July 171 2, was proved at York 13 June 1713, and 
to his daughter, Mrs. Wilcockson, he gave one shilling, "having done for her 
sufficiently already". His wife Elizabeth was buried at Newark in 171 1. 
Besides Mrs. Wilcockson he had an elder daughter, executri.x of his will,

when tirst established, and remained there until his 
death, being manager for thirt}- years, and becoming, 
in 1 886, one of the board of directors Being an 
ardent churchman he took much interest in church 
affairs, and aided the formation of the first surpliced 
choir at Snenton, where he was organist for several 
j-ears. When the ancient chancel stalls at St. Mary's, 
Nottingham, were removed at the restoration of 1848, 
Mr. Wilcockson bought them and presented 
them to St. Stephen's, where the}- still 
remain. A stained glass window to his

JOSEPH THOMPSON of i, Oxford Street, Nottingham, surgeon. Mr. Thompson, 

who was born at .Xottingham 17 February 1844, was baptized at St. Mary's, Nottingham, and 
was educated pri\ately, and, like his father, studied medicine at University College, London, 
where he obtained honours in medicine, surger)', and midwifery. M.R.C.S., 186^; L.R.C.P., 
1866; surgeon to Xottingham General Hospital and late consulting surgeon to the Nottingham 
General Dispensary, and surgeon to the \\'omen's Hospital ; fellow of the Obstetrical Society of 
London. Married, 8 September 1874, at St. Mary's, Nottingham, Edtt// Jl/uria, elder daughter 
of William Henry IVi/cockson, manager of the Nottingham and Notts Banking Company, by his 
wife Maria Lister, daughter of the Rev. Henr\- White, of Kew, Surrey. 

Their children's names and other particulars are given in the pedigree which follows. 

.•slncCStril. — The surname of Thompson in one or other of its spellings is amongst the most 
comm<_)n of English patronymics, standing twentj'-first in order of frequency, and consequently 
the earh- history of any family of this name presents special difficulty to the genealogist. The 
present family was settled at Colston Bassett in the early years of the eighteenth century, but in 
the registers of that place no earlier trace of the name appears, except an isolated marriage 
in the j-ear 1645, so that it would seem that the family settled there shortly before the year 
1 7 14. A memorandum given to his eldest grandson by the late Mr. Joseph Thompson of 
Hickling, who died in 1875 in his hundredth year, points to a Leicestershire origin for the family. 
He stated therein that his great grandfather, John Thompson of Colston Bassett, married 
Elizabeth Berridge "either from Thromaston [i.e., Thurmaston] or Syston, nr. Leicester". In 
this district we find both the families of Tomson and Berridge settled before the middle of the 
sixteenth century. The will of William Tomson of Kirb}- Muxloe was proved in 15 17, that of 
John Tomsone of Belgrave in 1526, John Thomson of Barkby in 1520. The will of John 
Berridge of Barkby was proved in 1543, and one of the same name in 1544, and yet another 
John Berridge of Barkby in 1580. And it may be noted that the wills of twenty-two Berridges 
were proved at Leicester between 1495 and 1649. Barkb\- is not far distant from Syston and 
Thurmaston, and it seems likely that the two families had been long settled as neighbours 
in that district before we find John Tomson and his wife, Elizabeth Berridge, at Colston Bassett. 
Lideed, a reference to the marriage registers of J^arkb\-, which commence in 1586, show before 
1700 the following marriages of the two families : — 

John Nydd & Elizabeth Berridge .. .. .. .. 13 Nov. 15S7 

Saint John Peale, of Burrow, & Kateryne ronisone, of Barkby . . 10 Feb. 1605/6 

Lawrence Sarson & Frauncys Tomson .. .. .. .. 7 Nov. i6oy 

Thomas Thompson, of Belgrave, & Ellen Gellibrande, of Barkby . . — Aug. 1614 

Thomas Duckett, of Thurmaston, & Ann Berridge, of Barkby . . 25 May 1641 

Thomas Berridge & Elizabeth James .. .. .. .. 27 Nov. 1691 

Further search amongst Leicestershire Wills, Marriage Licences, and Parish Registers 
clearly would much extend our knowledge of the two families, but at pre.sent it has not been 
possible to undertake such an inquir\'. The wills in the Leicester Archdeacon's Court, between 
1495 and 1649, include one hundred and twent_\'-six of the name of Tomson, in various spellings, 
and the Leicestershire Marriage Licences, 1570- 1729, give nine bridegrooms of the name of

'The occupation of J(.).SKPil Tliu.MUSoX (died 1771J and hi.s s(jn 
T)[(j.\l.\.S TiKJMi'SON (died 17S4J has not been ascertained, thoui^h it may 
be presumed that they were farmers. According to tradition the 
Thompsons were settled at a farm called The Lodge, about a mile distant 
from the village of Colston Hassett. The house has been rebuilt since 
their da_\'. 

JDSKl'll Thomp.son, formerly of The Lodge Farm, afterwards of 
Hickling, to which he removed slv'.rtl\- before 1S46, died in 1875, having 


ver)- near!)' completed his hundredth )'ear. He was a man of some con- 
siderable abilit}' and fond of mathematical studies. His wife, Alary Sniuner, 
belonged to an old Colston Bassett family strongly attached to the Roman 
Catholic faith, and he himself joined that communion and, later on, per- 
suaded b}' him, his son, Joseph Thompson of Nottingham, did the same. 
At Hickling Mr. Thompson fitted up a little oratory at his house for the 
benefit of the villagers, which was served b_\- a priest either from Newark 
or Eastwell. 

Colston Bassett ancientl)- was closely associated with the Roman 
Catholics, and the Golding famil)-, the principal family in the \illage, were 
well-known "popish recusants". A chapel had long existed in the village, 
and .services were still occasionall)- held, being served b)- priests from 
Nottingham, until last year, when the building was sold. 

The memorandum already referred to, which was given by Mr. 
Thompson to his grandson, follows : — 

"In the year 1710 there was at Colston Bassett John Thompson, who 
had two sons; 'rhomas the eldest died a batchelor, and Joseph, born in 1719, 
married Anne Marriott April 5, 1741. They had three sons, Thomas Thompson 
the eldest married Elizabeth Stokes October 2, 1772, who had three sons; 
Joseph Thompson the eldest (myself) married Mary Sumner, who had three 
sons ; Joseph the eldest (a surgeon) married Elizabeth Hall, Joseph the eldest 
son being yourself John Thompson manied Elizabetli Berridge either from 
Thromaston or Syston, nr. Leicester." 

As alread}- stated, Joseph Thompson, the writer of the preceding 
note, died in 1875 in the hundredth _\'ear of his age, and was buried with 
his ancestors at Colston Bassett. 

Jo.SKPH Thompson, his eldest son, received only such education as 
was available in a village for a farmer's son in the early years of the last 
centur}-. He was sent in to pursue his medical studies at University 
College, London, which then had not long been opened, where he obtained 
two silver medals for anatomy and surgery, and in 1831 he became 
L.S.A., and a member of the College of Surgeons. Shortl}- after, he com- 
menced practice as a surgeon in Nottingham, being at first in partnership 
with Mr. William Wright. This partnership was dissolved about 1842, and 
he soon made a very large practice, continuing alone until his son joined 
him in 1865. He resided successivel)- at Felham Street, Carlton Street, 
and High Pavement until 1858, when he built for himself a large house, 
No. I, O-Kford Street, Nottingham, still occupied by his .son. 

In 184S he published a little book itnt\\.\ed Epilefi/ic Form of Pner- 
pci-al Coiiviibioiis, and contributed various papers to the medical journals. 
As a surgeon he attained considerable repute throughout the Midlands. 
He held various appointments, and was hon. surgeon to the General 
Hospital from 1859 till his death. Besides being a member of the Not- 
tingham Town Council he was an active politician on the Tor\- side. 

The Registers at Colston Bassett, which have been e.vamined from 
165 I to 187s, contain the following entries relating to the Thom|json and 
Sumner families : —

The ancient church of Colston Bassett is now a mere neglected ruin, 
having been dismantled in 1892, when a new church was built in the centre 
of the village, though the grave)-ard is kept in order and is still used for 
burial. On the south side are nine slate headstones of the Thompsons, 


some of them very quaintl}- carved in the style not uncommon in Nottini;- 
hamshire churchyards. The_\- are thus placed ; —

These headstones appear in the extreme left hand of the accom- 
panying illustration. The inscriptinns upon them, taking; them in order of 
date, are as follows: —

III. EDWARD ENFIELD of London, b..rn at N,,ttin-ham 
15 Ma\- 181 1, died at 19, Chester Terrace, N.VV., 21 .April iSSo, ai^cd 
68 )-ears, and was buried 26 April at Woking. In 1826 he entered 
Manchester College, York, as a student, and he was afterwards President of 
Manchester New College, London. Sub.sequently, "through the influence 
of Lord Holland, he was appointed one of the Mone\'ers of the Mint, and 
became one of the most active members of the Corporation.'" The company 
of Moneyers was dissolved in 1 851, when Mr. Enfield retired, and thence- 
forward "gave his time and energy to works of education and philanthropy". 
In 1867 he became the Treasurer of University College Hospital, London, 
and was a "guiding spirit" in the management of that college and hospital. 

' The Moneyers were a body of considerable historical interest, coming 
down from Anglo-Saxon times. They were incorporated by a Charter of King 
Edward II, and continued to have charge of the gold and silver coinage of the 
realm until 1851, when the system was changed and the existing Moneyers, 
of whom Edward Enfield was one, received pensions. 


As a Unitarian dissenter he took a large share in nnsectarian efforts for the 
elevation of the poor in East London. His biograph\- appears in the Diet. 
Nat. Biog. He married, ( i ) at Little Portland Street Chapel, London, 3 Oct. 
1848, Honom, daughter of John Tay/oi , F.R.S., of Sheffield House, Ken- 
sington, and Anne Row Pring his wife, sister of John Taylor above-named ; 
.she was born 20 May 1815, and died 28 Nov. 1849, aged 34 years. Son : — 
i. Krmsi \Villi.\m Km'ield, of whom above. 

Mr. Kdward Knfield married, (2J at Berne, Switzerland, 19 Aug. 1S54, 
Harriet, daughter of Henr}- Roseoe of Liverpool, a barrister of the Inner 
Temple and a distinguished legal writer (see Diet. Nat. Biog.), whu now 
(1909) resides at Hamjistead. 

X ( ) T K . 

In 1789 Richard I'lnfield, eldest son uf Dr. Knfield, settled in Xuttir 
ham as an attorne)-, and succeeded Robert Segrave as town clerk 
Nottingham in 1790, but held office onl\- 
about a year, his death occurring in 1791 
at the early age of 22. His brother, Henr\- 
Enfield, was articled to him, and, on his 
death, to Mr. George Coldham, who was 
chosen town clerk in 1791, but the name of 
Henr_\- Knfielcl does not occur in the Law 
List until 1799, when he became, the previous year, a partner with Mr. 
Coldham, practising with him as "Coldham and Enfield". At that time 
there were but fourteen attornies practising in Nottingham. Mr. Coldham 
died in 181 5, and was followed as town clerk b_\' his partner, Henr\- Enfield, 
who held office from 18 15 to 1845, practising alone until 1824, when 
he was joined b_\- his son, William Enfield, the firm being known as 
"Enfield and Son" until 1841, when it became "Enfield and Sons" on 
the late Mr. Richard Enfield joining his father and brother in partnership. 
Mr. Henry Enfield died in 1845, and the business was continued by his .sons 
as "W. & R. Enfield", the elder brother, William Enfield, succeeding as 
town clerk, which office he held till 1873, when he resigned. The .same year, 
a nephew, Benjamin Dowson, joined them, and for a short time the firm was 
known as "W. & R. Enfield and Dow.son", and on Mr. William Enfield's 
retirement as "Enfield and Dowson". Mr. Dowson retired from it in i S74, 
and Mr. Richard Enfield continued to alone till 1880, when he was 
joined by his .son, Henry Houghton Enfield, the business becoming, as it 
now is, "Enfield and Son". It will be .seen that the Enfield family have 
been associated with the legal profession in Nottingham for at least one 
hundred ami twcntv x'ears, and since 181 5 have occupied the same house,

GEORGE GERSHOM BONSER nf Kirkstede, Sutton-in-Ash-

185 1. Mr. Bonser was educated at Mansfield Grammar School; he 
formerly resided at Brighton, was member of the Brighton Town Council 
and School Board, and has also been chairman of the School Board. Local 
Board, and Urban District Council of Sutton-in-Ashfield. He married at

.itlUCStrn. — The family nf Bonser first appears in South Xottingham- 
shire in 1693, at Granby and Colston Bassett, the name being variously 
spelt as Bonsar, Bonsire, Bonsier, Bonsor. In 17 17 the then representative 
was described as a weaver. The Revocation of the Edict of Nantes, in 
1685, drove many Protestants to England, where they found safe as\'lum. 
and many of them a livelihood by weaving. It seems likely that the 
Bonsires or Bonsiers were amongst those who came over.

OBooSer of (llo^hn^^am. 

."SllUEStrii. — The name Booker is spelled in various ways, 
but Hooker and Rowker largelj- predominate ; the original 
probabl}- is le linker, which ajjpears in Lancashire as earl_\' as 
30-31 Henry III [1345-6], anil on various other dates. The 
earliest mention of the Booker family so far noted in the town 
of Nottingham is in 1621, when the baptism of James, son of 
Robert Booker, is recorded in St. Mary's registers. At that 
period a family of Bookers had been settled for several genera- 
tions in and amund W. m in the of Blyth, Not- 
tinghamshire, and the visitation pedigree and other records 
show that they were connected with a more numerous grinip 
of families of the same name at Manchester. William B(HikL-r, 
with whom the pedigree here printed commences, presumably 
came from this, and it is not unlikel\- that he was iden- 
tical with William Booker, baptized at Blyth in 1 604, brother 
of John Booker, who entered his arms at the Visitation oi 
London in 1634 — Or, an eagle displayed vert ducally crowned 
of the first, all within a bordure azure charged with eight fleurs- 
de-lys of the first. This John Booker was s<.n of l-.-lmund 
Booker <jf W'oodhouse, but he was then resident in London, 
where he appears to have been a merchant of some importance, 
and ca|jtain of one of the trained bands. 

Arms have also been recorded to two branches of the 
Nottingham Bookers. On iS.Xugust 1 S5 :;, Thomas William 
Booker of the Leys, Heref..rd, a s,\n of l")r. Luke Booker [.w 
Fedigirc'], obtained a grant of the following coat : — Per pale 
or and vert, an eagle displayed, within a bordure charged with 

four roundels and four fleur.s-de-lys, all counterchanged. Cre.ST : A demi-eagle displa_\-ed 
or, in the beak a fleur-de-lys vert, the dexter wing bendy of six or and vert, the sinister wing 
bend}' sinister of six, also or and vert. 

The descendants of William Booker of Nottingham (d. 1S61 ) are entitled to the following 
Arms, hitherto borne by their ancestors, duly differenced, which were recorded in 1906 in 
Heralds' College:— Quarterly or and argent, an eagle displayed vert ducally crowned of the 
first, all within a bordure azure charged with four fleurs-de-lys and four roses alternatelj' also 
of the first. Crk.ST:— A swan proper collared and lined or, and charged with a fusil azure, 
thereon a rose argent. MOTTfJ:— "Semper fidelis." Mr. F. W. Booker also imj^ales the arms of 
Russell :— Argent, on a fesse between three gules barbed and seeded proper, as man)' 
water bougets of the field. 

The following pedigree has been registered in the books of the College of Arms as regards 
the lineal line from William l^ooker, who died in 1657, to the present time.

(gucvoft of Tl?iffot5, 

.•iluCCStnj. — This is a branch of a family which has been settled at Tithby, Notts, for several 
i^enerations. The earhest Beecroft entry in the Tithby Parish Register, which commences in 
1559, is the baptism of "Thomas Beecroft, y'' sonn of Thomas and Mary Beecroft his wife", on 
10 June 1665. Mar}' Beecroft died in January 1673, and in October of tlie same year Thomas 
married, at Tithby, Mary Beecroft, by whom he had at least four children, the youngest, John, 
having been baptized at Tithby on i June 1683. Further particulars of the Beecroft entries in 
the Tithb}' Registers are given in the Notes following this pedigree. 

William Beecroft, with wlmm the following pedigree opens, and who settled at VVilford 
near the end of the eighteenth centur\-, was born at Tithby, but owing to the disappearance of 
the Registers it is impossible to trace his ancestry. He was possibly a son of Thomas 
Beecroft, who married Elizabeth Threaves in 1762, who may have been a son of "John Becroft 
of T\-thb\' & Hannah Deeping of Cotgrave. Notts", who were married by licence at St. Peter's 
Church, Nottingham, i Feb. 1729. 

William Beecroft lived in a quaint thatched cottage at a corner of four cross roads, near 
the village-green, mentioned in Jl'ir/ZiS round Notti)igha>ii (1835J, as "formerl)- an ale house 
under the sign of the Star". An illustration of it (with references to the Beecroft family) appears 
in The Homes and Haunts of Henry Kirk Wliite {\<^o%). Here four generations of Beecrofts 
have been born, and the cottage is still in the tenancy of the present William Beecroft, who, 
however, resides at a .substantial modern house, known as "Grotto Farm", in the middle of the 
village. In some notes about Wilford, which appeared a few years ago in a local paper, we 
find: "Prior to the erection of the Infant School, in 1828, the children were taught by Mrs. 
Beecroft [who died 1858], in the house now occupied by Mr. W. Beecroft (one of her descen- 
dants), upon which Lady Lucy Smith voted Mrs. Beecroft an annuity" ; in other words. Lady 
Lucy granted Mrs. Beecroft a pension as compen.sation for the removal of the school, which 
pension she enjoyed for a period of thirty years. 

The Beecroft family, for two or three generations, farmed land in the parish of Wilford 
belonging to the Clifton estate on the north side of the river Trent, on which the Clifton Colliery, 
opened by Lady Clifton 16 June 1870, now stands. 

We therefore commence the pedigree as follows : —

HknRY 15LAGG, 

of Car-Colstoii, 



&Ci^^ of Car;€oee^on, 

.^nCCStnj. — The surname of Blagg is of very limited distribution in 
England, being apparently confined previous to the year 1500 to the two 
counties of Chester and Nottingham (Wiltshire examples of Blage and 
Blague being apparently variants of the surname Blake) ; while by the j-ear 
1600 it had only spread into the additional counties of Somerset, Kent, 
Suffolk, Salop, Gloucester, and into N.E. Leicester, London examples, of 
course, not being reckoned. As it can be proved that the Blaggs of Somer- 
set, Kent, and Suffolk all originated from the same Cheshire stock, while 
N.E. Leicester counts the same as Notts., which it adjoins, and Shropshire 
and Gloucester are only represented by isolated instances, it seems pre- 
sumable that Cheshire may be the cradle of the kindred. 

The earliest record of the name we have is from the manor court of 
Macclesfield, where, in the year 1350, some tenements were transferred to 
John, son of Thomas Blagge, Henry Blagge being surety. In 1362 Cecily 
Blag was fined \od. before Bartholomew de Burghersh, Justice of Chester, in 
his itinerary at Macclesfield, for breaking the assize of ale. In 141 5 Hugh 
Blagge paid \\d. for pannage in the forest of Macclesfield, and in 
the same year Thomas Blagge helped to build a barn called "le dome", in 
the park of Macclesfield, for "keeping the wild beasts within the park in 
winter". In the Ministers' Accounts of the Duchy of Lancaster, the name 
of Blagge occurs annually as that of a family of tenants in the forest of 
Macclesfield from 1350 until the rolls cease in 1487. In a muster roll of 
the army going to France under the Duke of Somerset, in 1442, occur the 
names of Robert Blagge and Stephen Blagge with other Cheshire men, 
under the command of John Dan)^el of Lymme, in that county, h'rom 
this family evidently came Rcibert Blagge, who rose to great wealth 
and eminence under Kings Henry VII and VIII. He states in his will 
(dated 1522) that he was the son of Stephen Blagge and Alice his wife, 
and was born at Witton, in Northwich, Cheshire. In 1502 he received 
a grant for life of the office of King's Remembrancer in the Exchequer, 
and was raised to the bench as the third Baron of the Exchequer, 
ij June 15 1 1. He married, first, Katherine, daughter and sole heir of 
Thomas Browne of Horseman's Place, in Dartford, Kent ; and, second, in 
1536, Mary, daughter of John Broke, Lord Cobham, by Margaret, daughter 
of Edward Nevile, Lord Abergavenny. With the first he acquired some 
property in Kent, which went to his sons by her, and with the second the 
estate of Broke-Montague, in Somerset. His son by his second wife. 
Sir George Blagge, was a favourite courtier of King Henry VIII. He 
was born in 1512, is mentioned as being present at the siege of Landreci 
in 1543, narrowly escaped being burnt at the stake in 1546, accompanied 
the expedition to Scotland and was knighted after the fight at Mussel- 
burgh in 1547. He was the father of Henry Blagge, who acquired 
b\- marriage the estate of Horningsherth, in Suffolk, and founded the 
famih- of Blagge of that county, whose pedigree is printed in Gage's 
History of Suffolk (Thingoe Hundred). Henry Blagge's son. Colonel 
Thomas Blagge, was groom of the bedchamber to King Charles I, and was 


the governor of Wallingford, whicli he gallantly defended for the King 
during the Civil War. He died in 1660, and was buried in Westminster 
Abbey, his widow being granted a pension of ii^200, afterwards increased to 
;^500, a year from the Treasur)'. Three of Colonel Thomas Blagge's 
daughters were maids of honour at the Court of Charles II — Henrietta 
Maria "the Blagge with the blond e}-e-lids", mentioned in Grammont's 
Memoirs, who married Sir Thomas Yarburgh of Snaith ; Mar)-, who became 
Mrs. Colclough ; and Margaret, the friend of E\-cl)-n the diarist, who 
married Sj'dney, Earl of Godolphin. 

It was Colonel Blagge who, after Worcester fight, preserved King 
Charles the Second's jewel of the "George", passing it, for safety, into the 
hands of the wife of Mr. Barlow of Blare- Pipe House in Staffordshire, 
where he took refuge. From her Robert Milward had it, who gave it to 
Isaak Walton, who again passed it to Blague, then a prisoner in the To^\•er, 
whence escaping he restored it to the King. (Elias Ashmole's Hist, of the 
Garter, 17 15, p. 182.) 

Among others of this name whose lives are of interest must be 
mentioned Thomas Blage, or Blague, of Queens' College, Cambridge, w ho 
wrote A Schole of Wise Conceytes, an exceedingly rare book, printed at 
London in 1569. He is probably identical with the Thomas Blague who 
was Dean of Rochester from 1592 to 161 1. He it was who performed the 
marriage ceremony between William Seymour and the Lad}' Arabella 
Stuart, between four and five o'clock one Friday morning in the Lady 
Arabella's chamber at Greenwich. This Thomas Blage descended from an 
ancient Wiltshire family, settled at Calne and Pinnell ("Pynhills"j in that 
county, as appears by a long pedigree given in Harl. MS. 1548, fo. 100 ; of 
this family also was John Blague, Abbot of Cirencester. Their name is fre- 
quently spelt Blake, which .seems interchangeable with Blagg in Wiltshire. 
A John Blake, implicated with Simon Burley, and executed for treason in 
1387, is described as John Blagge in a MS. in the Bodleian (Rawliuson, 
Ixxiii, fo. 1096J, and the famous Admiral Robert Blake is called "General 
Blague" in a pamphlet of 1653, and "Blage" in some contemporarj' MSS. 

A Stephen Blage, of Warminster, co. Wilt., is mentioned in a 
petition to Sir Nicolas Bacon, Lord Keeper (Cliaucery I'roeeediiigs, Sec. II, 
bdl. 145, no. 125.) 

Another was a Captain Blage who was tried in 1683 for high treason 
and conspiring the death of the King and raising a rebellion by having 
planned to the Tower with his own ship, manned by two hundred 
men armed with mortar pieces! The jury brought him in "Not guiltv". 

To come to the Blaggs of Nottinghamshire, we find them settled 
first in the hamlets of Sutton and Barnston, in the parishes of Granb}- and 
Langar. Geori^e Blngg of Barnston made a will, dated 18 October 1506, 
in which he directed that his body should be buried in the church of 
St. Andrew, at Langar. To the church of Langar he left a quarter of malt, 
and to the chapel at Barnston half a quarter of malt, to the light before the 
Sepulchre two sheep, to the light before the image of the Blessed Mary 
two sheep, to each house of Friars in Nottingham twenty shillings, to the 
Blessed Mary of Barnston two sheep, to the new bridge, xij(/. ; to Margaret 
Blage, a black steer (unam nigram juvencam) ; and, after .some other legacies, 
the remainder of his property to his wife Elizabeth and his son Thomas Blagg. 
Thomas Blagg of Barnston makes a will, proved in 1559, in which he 
mentions his sons Thomas, Richard, John, and Robert. William Blage of 
Barnston made a will in 1579, mentioning his sons Thomas, Henr}-, and 

Mks. Henry Bi.agg, 

Rchccoi Wait',-,!. 



Robert, and leaving, among other bequests, twenty shillings to "the 
repar\-nge of Langar churche, and ending quaintl)', "I bequithe my ferme 
unto Margaret my wif and Thomas my sonne, and my wyf to be the head 
so longe as she doithe keipe her widdowe, and }'f she do marrye, my ferme 
wholle [wholly] to remayne unto my sonne Thomas, she to taike hir parte 
[departure] and goo hir waye"! Possibly this son Thomas is the Thomas 
Blagge, senior, of Barnston, who makes a will in 1596, naming " nyne 
of my yongest children", viz., William, Thomas, Richard, and six 
daughters. In the neighbouring parish of Granby we find the name of 
Henry Blagge appearing as a juror on the. Court Rolls for that parish, 
preserved at Belvoir, as early as 1539, and frequently thereafter. This 
Henry apparently died in 1568, leaving a will, in which he describes 
himself as "of Suttmi in the parish of Granebe", and making his son Henry 
his sole e.xecutor, incnliduiiig also his sons Richard, John, and William, 
besides daughters. /'//////' lUagiie was parson of Barkston, in Leicestershire, 
an adjoining parish, from 1604 to 162 1, and there are isolated entries of the 
name of Blagg in the parish registers of Muston, Barkston, and Wood borough, 
between the years 1562 and 1573, but the only other parish in this part of 
England, besides Granby and Langar, in which the name occurs for any 
continuous period prior to 1600, is Cotgrave, where Henry Blagge appears 
as a juror at an Inquisition Post Mortem as early as 1566, from whence 
there are records of that family down into the seventeenth century. The 
frequency of the names of Henry and Thomas in the Blagg family, in 
proportion to the generally more common names of John and William in 
other families, and the way in which they prevail throughout all periods 
from 1350 to the pre.sent time, and in all branches of the surname, both in 
Notts and elsewhere, is worthy of notice and remark, as supporting the 
theory of a common ancestry. 

With one of Henrys the pedigree here printed begins. It is 
possible he was the Henry mentioned as one of the younger sons of 
William Blagg of Barnston, from the wording of the will evidently quite a 
child in 1579, or he may have come from Sutton-cum-Granby or Cotgrave ; 
but all we know at present, for certain, is that he came to East Bridgford, 
where the name does not occur before his time, and married Katherine 
Branston, a widow, in 1616. From that date to the present day the 
pedigree is unbroken and unusually detailed and complete. Biographical 
particulars, so far as they are es.sential, are given under the individual 
names in the chart pedigree which follows. 

In North Nottinghamshire there was a family of this name at Tux- 
ford and East Markham in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. 
In the churchyard of the latter village are many headstones to them. 
Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Blagg of Tuxford married Sir Thomas 
Wolla.ston White of Wallingwells, Bart, 3 January iSoi. James Blagg of 
Tuxford was a colleger at Eton in 1808. 

Arms. — Sir George Blagge and his descendants, the Blagges of 
Suffolk, bore on their shield : Argent, two bends engrailed gules. The 
Kentish branch used Argent, two bends engrailed sable, a baton 
gules. There has been no grant of arms to Blagg of Nottingham- 
shire. Henry Blagg, senr., when signing a family settlement with his 
son Henry I^lagg, junr., of Car-Colston, in 1 806, sealed it with a lion 


rampant, but there is no evidence that he was entitled to it as a crest or charge. Of recent )-ear.s 
a "blague" or pouch with the punning motto: "Partagez votre blague" — Share your pouch — 
has been used as a badge or rebus. A bookplate so devised is illustrated on page 152.
