Introduction. 



IT is iinknown when Members were first summoned from Wales, but Hugbes' Pari. 
Rep. of Cardiganshire 1849, contains a Writ ("No. 34, De Wallensibus ad parliamentum 
apud Bborum Venire faciendis,") addressed 18 April, 15 Bdw. 2, to Bdmund Earl of Arundell, 
Justiciary of Wales, directing him to cause 24 discreet and able persons to be chosen for 
" Suth Walliae," and the same number for " North Wallise," to attend the Parliament 
summoned to meet at York 2 May 1322, but no returns to this writ have been found. In the 
Pari. Returns, the earliest instance of their names being preserved, occurs in 20 Bdw. 2, when 
"by writ, dated Kenilworth 8 January 1326-7, the Justiciary of North Wales is ordered to 
send twenty-four men from these parts, as well Bnglish as Welsh," to assist in the last 
Parliament of Bdw. II., summoned to meet at Westminster 14 Dec. 1326, and by 
Prorogation 7 Jan. 1326-7, when the following were returned: —

No further Members appear to have been again summoned from the Principality 
until the reign of Henry VIII., when, having established the thirteen counties as at present, 
that Monarch further granted them, by 27 Hen. 8, cap. 26, the privilege of returning 27 
Members to the Parliament at Westminster, one for each county and county town, with the 
exception that Monmouthshire was allowed two, and Haverfordwest one, while the county town 



iv. INTRODUCTION. 



of Merionetlisliire was debarred separate representation. The generally received idea is 
that Wales did not exercise this privilege until 1541, but although the returns to the two 
short Parliaments of 8 June to 18 July 1536, and 28 April 1539 to 24 July 1540. have 
unfortunately been totally lost, yet, judging from other evidence, it may fairly be inferred 
that the Principality did actually return Members in 1536 and 1539, as well as the English 
counties, although the names are not preserved in either case. So matters remained until 
the Reform Act, 1832, when a second member was granted to the shires of Carmarthen, 
Denbigh, and Glamorgan, and the towns of Merthyr Tydfil and Swansea were each allowed 
a representative, thus increasing the total to 32, while the Reform Act, 1867, gave a second 
member to Merthyr, and the third Reform Act of 1885, disfranchising the Boroughs of 
Beaumaris, Brecknock, Cardigan, Haverfordwest, and Radnor, gave five members to 
Glamorgan and an additional member to Monmouthshire and Swansea, thus bringing up 
the number of representatives to 34. During Barebone's Parliament, 1653, six members 
were appointed, not elected, for Wales, and one for Monmouthshire, while to the Common- 
wealth Assemblies of 1654 and 1656, each shire returned two members except Merioneth 
which sent one, and Monmouthshire three. Cardiff was the only borough represented in 
1654, and Cardiff and Haverfordwest in 1656, while Swansea was allowed, pro hac vice, to 
send a member to the Assembly of 1659. By Act of Parliament, 35 Henry VIII, cap.^, 
Welsh members were to receive the same wages as English members, namely, four 
shillings a day for the Knights of the Shire, and two shillings a day for Burgesses, and 
soon afterwards the various boroughs rated for this purpose, were allowed to share in 
choosing a member as well as the shire town. Many were the petitions arising from this system. 

During the 350 years or so of its representation at Westminster, Wales has 
continually shewn a wonderful preference for members of its own nationality, scions of ■ its 
ancient county families ; and although the extension of the franchise in 1832 and 1867, 
made some changes in this respect, notably in the boroughs, it remained for the general 
election of 1885 to effect such a complete revolution of affairs, as happened at that date. 
Taking a general survey of the Principality, with which Monmouthshire is blended with 
inseparable ties of relationship, kindred, and feeling, it is interesting in the highest degree 
to observe the really remarkable manner in which the various old county families, supplying 
the Members of Parliament, were connected together, not only the same families 
representing the same constituency for many generations, as frequently happened, but also 
extending their influence over several constituencies, in different counties, forming by .ties 
of kindred or marriage, a perfect network of relationship. A reference to the Index will at 
once shew the enormous influence of the many branches of the great Herbert family, who 
contributed 41 members, and after their time, arose in North Wales the great house of 



INTRODUCTION. 



Wynnstay, which furnished many members for the counties of Denbigh and Montg-omery, 
and the boroughs of Beaumaris and Flint, while in the South, the Tredegar family sat for 
the shires and boroughs alike of Monmouth and Brecknock, and, to a lesser extent, other 
families followed suit. Moreover, when one county failed to find a suitable member within 
its own borders, it had only to step across to the adjacent county to borrow a representative, 
and even then the member usually possessed a landed interest in both counties, of which 
there are instances in the cases of Denbigh and Flint, Brecknock and Radnor, Carmarthen 
or Cardigan and Pembroke. In nearly every instance where a borough has chosen a 
stranger from Bngland, (which the counties seldom did), some satisfactory reason has been 
found for doing so, su.ch as a marriage relationship, or at least, intimate friendship with 
some great local landowner. 

Wales has been represented by many noted personages, distinguished in one way 
or another. It seated Sir Heneage Finch and Sir Simon Harcourt, both afterwards Lord 
Chancellors, at Beaumaris and Cardigan, and found seats for two Cabinet Ministers, 
rejected elsewhere. Sir James Graham at Pembroke 1838, and the present Duke of 
Devonshire at Radnor 1869. A Prime Minister, Robert Harley, Earl of Oxford, sat for 
Radnor 20 years, while 3 other Speakers of the House, Sir John Puckering, Sir Wm. 
Williams, and Sir Thomas Hanmer, were chosen for Carmarthen, Beaumaris, and Flint- 
shire. Other members of various Governments, some Privy Councillors or in the Cabinet, 
were Francis Gwyn, John Jeffreys, Thomas Morgan, Sir Charles Gould, Bragge Bathurst, 
Charles Wynn, Lord Granville Somerset, John Nicholl, Sir G. Cornewall Lewis, Lord 
Aberdare, and Sir G. Osborne Morgan, while several others held junior appointments at 
the Treasury or Admiralty, or occupied positions in the Royal Household. Lord 
Stalbridge has been Chief Ministerial Whip, a position filled at the present day 
by Mr. Thomas Ellis. Of sailors there were Sir Sackville Trevor, Sir Robert Mansel, 
and Thomas Mathews ; of soldiers, Sir Thomas Baskerville, Sir Henry Bagenal, (slain 
in Ireland,) Lord Windsor and his brother, General Rooke, Sir Thomas Picton, (who 
fell at Waterloo), the Marquis of Anglesey and his brother, and several Somersets; 
of lawyers, Sir David Williams, Hugh Hughes, Sir Wm. Jones, Sir John Vaughan, 
and Robert Atkins ; of ambassadors, Sir C. Hanbury Williams, Fulke Greville, Sir 
John Stepney, and Sir Arthur Paget ; of scholars and antiquaries. Sir John Price, Thomas 
Phaer, Humphrey Lloyd, W. W. E. Wynne, and Octavius Morgan ; of civilians, 
David Lewis, Sir Edw. Carne, Ellis Price, William Awbrey, Griffith Lloyd, and Sir 
John Herbert. Many of the Members sat in the Council of the Marches of Wales, 
whilst others became Welsh Judges. In Queen Elizabeth's reign some of the Members 
were clergymen, while the gentle poet, George Herbert, afterwards took Holy Orders, 



vi. INTRODUCTION. 



and so did Henry Glynne. Sir Hugh Middleton constructed the New River, and his 
brother was Lord Mayor of London. Others achieved fame in a less enviable mode. 
Sir John Perrott, Lord Deputy of Ireland, was condemned for high treason, a fate shared 
by Sir Gelly Meyrick and Algernon'^Sidney, who both suffered death on the scaffold. 
Three Members, Sir John Danvers, Thomas Wogan, and Col. John Jones, sat upon the 
trial of Charles I., and earned the opprobrious epithet of " regicide," Col. Joncs being 
hanged, drawn, and quartered at Tyburn. One Member, Richard Pryse, " died of 
obesity," two died on the day of their election, one died in the House of Commons, and 
two in a debtor's prison. 

During the times of the Civil War most of the Members for Wales were staunch 
Royalists, and for their loyalty were " disabled to sit," by the Parliament. Of such were 
Lord Carbery, Col. Bodvel, Sir Herbert Price, Sir Walter Lloyd, Sir Henry Vaughan, 
Col. Wm. Salisbury, and Sir Philip Warwick the historian, while Col. Wm. Herbert, 
Capt. Charles Price, and Sir Nicholas Kemsys were slain in battle, fighting for their 
King. On the the other side were the Parliamentary Colonels, some risen from the ranks, 
or taken from behind the counter, who under the Commonwealth ruled Wales with an 
iron hand, Carter, Twisleton, Jones, Dawkins, Watkins, Ellice, Clerke, Berry, and Phillips ; 
while other noted men were their lawyers, John Glynne and Wm. Fbxwist, Richard 
Cromwell the Protector, Bdw. Lawrence the President of the Council of State, and Jenkyn 
Lloyd the Protector's chaplain. 

In later times two Members, Mr. Charles Wynn and Mr. C. R. M. Talbot, 
have enjoyed the position of Father of the House of Commons, while several others 
attained to great longevity. On the other hand there have been several instances where 
Members have been elected when under age. Of titles the Welsh Members have never 
been deficient. Many received the honour of knighthood, were created baronets, or were 
elevated to the peerage ; while the Dukes of Beaufort, Bolton, Chandos, and Devonshire, 
the Marquises of Anglesey and Camden, and the Earls of Abergavenny, Anglesey, Oxford, 
Pembroke and Montgomery, Leicester, Lisburne, Essex, Verney. Nottingham, Talbot, 
Dunraven, Clarendon, and Cawdor, have at different times represented Welsh constituencies. 

Of contested elections Wales has had its share. There was opposition at Denbigh 
as far back as 1572, double returns for Cardigan in 1601 and 1604, and several elsewhere 
afterwards, and although of course most of tlie contests and petitions occurred in contributory 
boroughs, yet from time to time two rival families would meet in fierce contest for a county, 
and the poll be kept open over a fortnight perhaps, at ruinous expense. The contest for 
Flint in 1734, it is said, cost ^70,000. The elections for Denbighshire 1601 and 



INTRODUCTION. vii. 



Carmarthen 183 1 were interrupted by rioting, and fresh elections had to be held; and the 

elections to the Long Parliament for the counties and boroughs of Cardigan and Carnarvon 

were postponed owing to the Sheriffs receiving the writs " too late for Members to be 
elected before the meeting of Parliament." One Member was unseated for being a 
Scotchman. In one instance two Brothers contested the same seat, while at another 
election Father and Son were rival candidates. The elections at Montgomery 1580, 

Carmarthen 1614, and Cardiff 1661, are unique in their way. Cardiff twice rejected a 
future Lord Chancellor. 

The Blue Book return of charges made to Candidates at the General Election of 

1892, issued from the Home Office, gave the following statistics with reference to South 
Wales : —

INTRODUCTION. ix. 



The authorities used are far too many to be completely enumerated where research 
extending over many years has been made in so many directions, but mention may 
especially be made of such standard works as the Peerages and Baronetages (Extant and 
Extinct) of Collins, Burke, Dod, and Foster, Burke's Landed Gentry, the Parliamentary 
Companions of Dod and Debrett, and other similar works ; Dwnn's Visitation of Wales, by 
Meyrick, Fenton's Tour in Pembrokeshire, Pennant's Tour in Wales, Jones's History of 
Breconshire, Meyrick's Cardiganshire, Williams's Radnorshire, Coxe's Tour in, and 
Williams's History of Monmouthire, Williams's Ancient and Modem Denbigh, Taylor's 
Historic Notices of Flint, Breese's Kalendars of Gwynedd, Nicholas's Annals of Wales, 
Clark's Genealogies of Glamorgan, the truly valuable Alumni Oxonienses by Foster, and 
the indispensible Diet, of Nat. Biography. The lists of members, of course, have been 
taken from the Pari. Blue Book of Returns, (supplemented and corrected by Mr. Duncombe 
Pink's indefatigable research among independent M.S. authorities and contemporary 
sources), and other sources of information have been the works, on kindred subjects, of 
Browne Willis, Parry, and Beatson, Haydn and Ockerby's Book of Dignities, the Calendars 
of State Papers, and of the Committee for Compounding, and the Reports of the Historical 
Manuscripts Commission. It has been considered unnecessary to insert in this work any 
remarks at length upon the history of Parliament itself, considered as an institution, but 
the reader is referred to Oldfield's Hist.^of Pari. Rep., which contains the old law on the 
subject, and to the interesting preface to Hughes's Pari. Rep. of Cardiganshire, -which 
throws much light upon the matter of the ancient franchises in Wales, while the recent 
changes in this respect are too well known to need recapitulation. It has been found 
impossible in some few cases to identify the member at all, while in other cases only 
suppositions can be made, the similarity of names and the absence of dates in pedigrees 
rendering complete identity hopeless. As regards dates before 1752, the new system, as at 
present, has been adopted thoughout. It has also been considered best not to attempt to 
define the political principles of the Members. The figures at contested elections and of 
registered electors are taken chiefly from such works as H. Stocks Smith's " Parliaments of 
England," continued by McCalmont and Rowe, and similar or contemporary sources, but in 
some cases complete accuracy cannot be vouched for, as different accounts vary slightly. 

In addition to the ordinary Index to the Members, which contains copious cross- 
references, the work has been supplemented by an Index to such of the defeated candidates 
as never succeeded in winning a Welsh seat. 

In conclusion, the writer wishes to thank those ladies and gentlemen who have so 
courteously supplied him with information concerning their families, and desires to tender 



INTRODUCTION. 



his acknowledgments to Messrs. D. Duncan & Sons, the proprietors of the Cardiff Thnes, 
(in whose columns a portion of this history at one time appeared), for their courtesy in the 
matter. He also wishes to recognize with gratitude the information he has received on 
many points, from the Rev. C. Whaley, M. A., while he is very greatly indebted indeed to the 
unfailing kindness and invaluable assistance of that eminent authority on Members of 
Parliament, Mr. W. Buncombe Pink, who has been good enough to revise the earlier 
portion of the work.

June 1648 charged by the army " with high treason, as enemies to the army and evil counsellors to the 
" parliament The eleven begged leave to retire from the House, but were expelled Aug. 1648, and most 
" of them retired beyond sea " (Hume.) " Lewis and Glynne were charged with acting m excess of their 
" powers as members of a committee app. to consider the propositions for the setthng of Wales, m ordering 
" the .committee for sequestration to forbear all proceedings against the inhabitants of the Principality, 
" whereby all that had borne arms against the Parliament, all disaffected and scandalous ministers, who 
" in their sermons had reviled the Parliament, calling them rebels and traitors, and not only incensing 
" the people against the parliament, but taking up arms, and leading their parishioners m arms against 
" the parliament, and many other desperate malignants, were freed from sequestration. Sir Wm. Lewis 
" was also charged with having protected many notorious delinquents. Lord Carbery and others m co. 
" Carm., Mr. Morgan late Knight of the Shire, Mr. Gwyn in co. Radnor, by freeing them from composi-

full age in the tynie that the discovery of principles was most dangerous ; and it is conceived he hath not

Mr Bulstiode Whitlocke, than by his own desires." (M.S. 1661.)

claim under him might have the ore, paying the proprietors for it upon the bank within 30 days after

acquired the Maesyfelin estate in 1750, on the death of his bro. -in-law Sir Lucius Christianus Lloyd 3rd

circumstance that both gentlemen had agreed that the survivor should be heir to the other. Mr Lloyd

celebrated Henry Fox, afterwards Lord Holland, Sir Chas. Hanbury Williams (see co. Hon, 1735), and 
Richard Rigly M.P., many years Paymaster General, who were often their guests, and whose extreme 
partiality for the card tables resulted eventually in the two Cardiganshire gentlemen being considerable 
losers, " but both retrieved their fortunes by marrying heiresses."

opposed in the House, and it is recorded that Sir Robert Mansell was appealed to by several members 
who wished to be informed whether the money had been recommended by the Council for War. During 
two days' debate Sir Robert held his peace, feeling that, being a member of what in those days was 
equivalent to the present Cabinet, he ought not to divulge private counsels, but ultimately he was 
pressed so hard by his fellow-members that he unburdened his mind, and admitted that for many months 
he had not been summoned to the deliberations of the Council of War because he had opposed the policy 
of the King and propounded a plan of his own, which had been rejected. This disclosure still further 
encouraged the Opposition, and their resistance led to the Parliament being suddenly dissolved ; and 
when the next was summoned Sir Robert retired to his seat in Glamorganshire."

Mary dau. of Sir Robert Napier Bt. of Luton Hoo, Beds., and had the estate and Castle of Chirk settled 
upon hini by his father on his first marriage 1612. He was Knighted at Whitehall 10 Feb. 1617, M.P. 
Weymouth and Melcombe Regis 1624, co. Denb. May to Aug. 1625, Oct. 1640 until secluded Dec. 1648, 
and April to Dec. 1660. From the commencement of the Long Parliament he took an active part against 
the King, was one of the members who took the Protestation May 1641, and the Negative Oath 7 June 
1643, and subscribed to the Solemn League and Covenant 22 Dec. 1643, was app. by commission dated 
12 June 1643 Sergeant-Major-General of the forces of Parliament in five counties of North Wales, and in 
Nov. following captured the Castles of Holt, Flint, and Hawarden, Wrexham, and Mostyn House. 
He was afterwards reinforced with additional forces and gained several victories, and by his capture of 
Powis Castle 3 Oct. 1644, became practically the master of North Wales. He received the thanks of the 
House of Commons 12 Aug. and 10 Oct. 1644, and afterwards marched into South Wales, " and so 
" important were his services deemed that upon the passing of the self-denying Ordinance in 1645, Sir 
" Thomas Middleton was one of the few members of parliament in whose favour the Ordinance was 
" relaxed, and he was ordered to remain in militarj^ command." He was app. by parliament Dep. Lieut, 
for CO. Denbigh 2 July 1646, but took no part in those extreme measures which culminated in the trial 
and execution of Charles I., and being a staunch Presbyterian, was with the greater part of the members 
forcibly secluded from the House by Col. Pride and his soldiers in the famous " Purge " of Dec. 1648, 
while a garrison was put into Chirk Castle " of which he could not get rid till he had given them a bond 
" of ;^20,ooo and other security for his good behaviour, upon which they gave an order for the withdrawal 
" of their garrison 16 May 1651." In 1659 Sir Thomas promised his assistance to Sir George Booth in his 
. premature rising at Warrington in Cheshire, when the Rump Parliament resolved 9 Aug. 1659, "that Sir 
" George Booth, Sir Thomas Middleton (with others named) being in Arms against the Parliament and 
" Commonwealth and all their Adherents and Partakers, are Rebels and Traytors to the Commonwealth 
" and shall be proceeded against as Rebels and Traytors." The rising was speedily put down by Gen. 
" Lord " Lambert, to whom Chirk Castle was surrendered 24 Aug. 1659, and on 27 Aug. the Rump 
resolved " that Chirk Castle be demolished, and the Lord Lambert is to see it demolished accordingly." 
" This resolution however was not fully carried out, owing to the King's restoration following soon after, 
" but the damage done to the building and its contents were not repaired for less than ,^30,000, and Sir 
" Thomas estimated his losses in the earlier years of the war at ;^45,ooo." " In Feb. 1660 Gen. Monk 
" enforced the return of the surviving members of the House who had been excluded in the Purge of 
" Dec. 1648, and Sir Thomas once more took his seat at Westminster as M.P. for Denbighshire," and it 
was ordered 27 Feb. 1660 that Sir Thomas Middleton and his son " and the other persons who were taken 
" upon the surrender of Chirque Castle have their liberty, and that the sequestration of their estates be 
"suspended." Sir Thomas was app. Cus. Rot. ofco. Denb. 31 Aug. 1660, nom. a Knight of the Royal 
Oak 1660 (estate worth ;^6oo a year), and was again M.P. co. Denb. in the Convention Parliament April

27 April that Col. Twisleton having ;^90q or so of sequestered money with him, should pay it over to Col.

sent from London to reinforce Gen. Middleton and marched to join his army in co. Cardigan,

who execrated his memory as a rapacious oppressor and petty tyrant, averred that he compelled the

a small estate which his wife had brought him . All the activity he discovered,, and which never was 
great, was however exerted to beneficient purposes ; at the time of the King's trial, he had fallen on his 
knees before his father, and had conjured him by every tie of duty and humanity to spare the life of that 
monarch " (Hume.) On his father becoming Lord Protector in 1653, Richard was forced to leave his 
pleasant country life, brought to Court, and placed on many Parliamentary Committees, app. First

Edward Herbert was a prominent supporter of Cromwell in co. Mon. which he represented Sept 
1656-8 Jan., but little more can be gleaned about him, except from some references in the Cal State papers 
by w;hich it appears that he was app. a member of the High Court of Justice 25 June 165 1 and that on 
4 Sept. 1655 he was in possession, (probably by lease from the Countv Commrs. of Sequestr'atiou ) of The

they had been bequeathed to him by his relative Elizabeth Somerset, "who died 6 months aeo " and 
" m which he IS disturbed on pretence of her recusancy." On 10 Nov. 1661 Sir Robert Mason wrote from 
Kingsdere, CO .Glouc, to Secretary Nicholas, saying: " The person whom he has taken into custody is 
Edw. Herbert, late of the Grange, near Magor, co. Mon., where he was Cromwell's tenant of part of the 
Marquis of Worcester's estate, but since the Marquis had power to recover it, he retired to Bristol He 
was Cromwell's right hand, was talked of for Knighthood, and is an Independent. Suspects him now as 
an instrument of new mischief, for he corresponds with malcontents and nonconformists in Wales

John Nicholas of Chepstovsr, was a Capt. in the army, Governor of Chepstow in Jan., 165 1 and 
1659, added to the High Court of Justice 25 June 1651, app. by the Protector in 1656, Steward to hold 
courts for the conservation of the Severn and its branches, and held that office till 1657, was M.P. co. Mon. 
1656-8 and Jan. to April 1659, and in command of the militia troops in Chepstow and Monmouth in July 
1659. At the restoration he went abroad, but receiving pardon, a pass was ordered to be sent in 1661 to 
" Capt. Nicholas as one of those whom the King wishes to call home." (Cal. State Papers.) 

General Berry, who was a friend of Richard Baxter, and appears to have been a man of some 
principle, was a clerk in some ironworks in Salop, at the outbreak of the Civil War in 1642, but joining 
the parliamentary forces, distinguished himself as an active soldier, and speedily attained to great power 
in the army, was Captain Lieutenant under Oliver Cromwell at the battle of Gainsborough 28 July 1643, 
distinguished himself at the battle of Preston, chosen by the army President of the Council of Adjustors 
in the disputes between the Army and the Parliament in 1647, and app. to suppress an intended rising in 
Nottinghamshire 1655, and made one of the 12 Major Generals instituted by Cromwell March 1655, and 
placed in command of cos. Monmouth, Hereford, Salop, and N. and S. Wales, but whose almost despotic 
powers were greatly abridged by the Protector's measures Dec. 1656, little but the title being retained. 
He was elected M.P. for cos. Mon., Hereford, and Worcester 1656, but choosing the latter, represented it 
till made one of the Protector's House of Lords as Lord Berry 10 Dec. 1657, was app. one of the sub- 
committee on the business of the Fens 28 June 1653, and served upon numerous committees. He joined 
the cabal against Richard Cromwell April 1659, was added to the Council of State by order of Parliament 
9 May 1659, app. one of the Council of State ordered to exist from 17 May to i Dec. 1659, was a member 
of the Committee of Safety and for the nomination of Officers July to Oct. 1659, (attended 11 meetings out 
of 16 in July,) was one of the Committee for Dunkirk Sept. and Oct. 1659, one of the Pari. Commrs. for 
governing Ireland 1659, and app. by the Army a Commr. for the same purpose Jan. 1660. He was 
cashiered with the other Generals by Pari. 12 Oct. 1659, but on the army gaining the upper hand, was 
nominated by the army 28 Oct. 1659 one of the council of 10, to constitute the Committee of Safety, and 
for nominating Officers. Being suspected with other officers of designs against the Council, he was 
ordered by them "to repair to his house" 9 Jan. 1660, and a further order of the Council was made 
14 Jan., " that he be secured for disobeying." He was attainted at the restoration, and being regarded as 
too dangerous a foe to be left at liberty, remained under restraint for years in one prison or another. On 
18 May 1662, a warrant was granted to the Lieutenant of the Tower " to receive Col. Berry into his 
custody, and keep him close prisoner." On the 25 July following another warrant issued to the Governor 
of Scarborough Castle, " to receive Col. Berry into custody for treasonable designs," and he was so 
received 30 Aug. 1662. Secretary Nicholas wrote to the Gov. of Scarborough Castle (Sir Jordan Cross- 
land,) 14 April 1664, requesting that Col. Berry "be allowed so much liberty as may conduce to the 
benefit of his health," and in Oct. 1667, Berry, who was then the only prisoner in the Castle, addressed 
a letter to the Governor, saying that he " hoped after nearly 8 years imprisonment and damage suffi^red•,^ 
in his estate, that he might have had liberty without making any tacit acknowledgement of guilt, or having 
any character put upon him. Has been passive in his sufferings hitherto, and shall endeavour to continue 
to do so, and not trouble him any further." Whether he' continued a prisoner until his death is uncertain, 
but his friend Baxter, in his Autobiography, relates that on being released " he became a gardener, and 
lived in a safer state than in all his greatness." Anothei authority identifies him as second in command 
at Newton Butler in Ireland in 1689, and gives his death as taking place 9 May 1691, but this appears very 
improbable. (Diet. Nat. Biog.) 

1656. Nov. 26. Nathaniel Waterhouse of Westminster, vice Berry, who el. to serve for co. 
Wore. He was M.P. co. Mon. 1656-8, and Monmouth Jan. to April 1659, and was of the great family of 
Waterhouse of Halifax, and of kin to Sir Edw. W. Chancellor of the Exchequer in Ireland temp. Q. 
Eliz. and to Edw. Waterhouse LL-D. an antiquarian and ethical writer of London. He is frequently 
mentioned in the Cal. State Papers as Steward of Oliver Cromwell's lands 1651-8, and although sometimes 
styled his servant, undoubtedly occupied an important fiduciary position, and he served Richard 
Cromwell in the same manner 1658-9. In 1651 Parliament granted Biddlesdon Manor, Bucks, (part ofthe 
Duke of Buckingham's sequestered estates,) to Nathaniel Waterhouse and John Thurloe in trust for the 
wife and children of Henry Ireton, Lord Deputy of Ireland. Report by the Committee 25 Aug. 1659, that

of Monmouth, Hereford, and Gloucester. In the exercise of this extensive commission, his Grace, who 
was dignified with the title of Lord President of Wales and the Marches, made his celebtated semi-regal 
progress in state through South Wales in 1685. Being high in favour at the Court of the Stnarts, he 
carried the Queen's Crown at the coronation of James II., and was the means of obtaining a ne^V charter 
for the borough of Brecon in 1686. On the accession of William and Mary, he refused to take the oath of 
allegiance to them, and retired from Court, when his lieutenancies were conferred upon the Earl of 
Macclesfield. His Grace, who was patron of several livings, and presented to Llanbedr 1661, Crickhowell 
1668, Llangattock 1661 and 1675, and Llangynidyr 1678, all in co. Brecon, was Gov. and Captain of 
Chepstow Castle in 1661, and d. 21 Jan. 1699. He was assessed at ;^5000 by the Committee for the 
Advance of Money 17 Nov. 1645, and information was laid against him 6 Jan. 1651 that " he rode armed 
in Oxford garrison, was at the King's quarters at Newent near Gloucester, with his father, when the 
King's party besieged Gloucester, till the siege was raised, when the King reviewed the troop in which he 
rode." The Sequestration Commrs., however, ordered 6 June 1651, "that he is not a delinquent within

Commr. of Array for co. Mon. by the King 1642, and taken prisoner at the fight at Highnam near 
Gloucester 25 March 1643, after which period he seemed to have changed sides, and was arrested by order 
of the King at Abergavenny 11 Sept. 1645, but being released on bail, captured Monmouth for Parliament 
24 Oct. following, but was afterwards again suspected of changing sides, as appears from the following 
letter written by Cromwell in 1648 ;— " We have plain discoveries that Sir Trevor Williams of Llangibby, 
" was very deep in the plot of betraying Chepstow Castle. I do hereby authorise you to seize him. He is

1624. Jan. 26. Walter Steward or Stewart of Westminster. He was uns. on petition 28 March 
1624, and a new writ ordered to be issued, " being obiected to as being a Scotchman, and not naturalized. 
" The Committee thought his election good, but the House resolved, That Mr. William Stuart hath dealt 
" very worthily m forbearing to come to the House. Sir Edward Coke was of opinion, no alien denizated 
" ought to sit. ' No return to the fresh writ has been found. He was again returned, apparently without 
further question, to the next parliament, and he seems to have been adm. to Gray's Inn 9 March 1620, 
being then one of the Gentlemen of the Privy Chamber to James I. 

1625. May. The same. 

1626. Jan. William Fortune. Of a Monmouthshire family. A Wm. Fortune, possibly his

settled as the parliament was dissolved 5 May 1640. The latter was the same as the member for 
Beaumaris March 1640, and being at this time returned for both constituencies, " had not yet made his 
choice," 16 April 1640 (Cal; State Papers.)

" agent of the Propagators and resided at Penyworlodd until his death, when he left a number of coats of 
" mail, and other armour." He seems to have risen to notice under the patronage of the powerful Col. 
Philip Jones, see Glam. 1654, (to whose Will he was witness 15 April 1673,) as the Cal. State Papers 
contains a complaint made by the Breconshire Committee 29 Oct. 1651 to the Committee for Compounding 
in London, that they had been obliged to fine Watkins ;^2o for contempt in refusing to deliver up books 
and papers, and charging the late Sequestration Commrs. for S. Wales for the previous two years with 
letting sequestered estates at extreme under values. Furthermore, on 2 Dec. 1651 articles were brought 
by Wm. Jenkins of co. Carm. against Wm. Watkins and other late Commissioners, alleging that "Col. Jones 
"who had but_^7 a year but has purchased estates worth ;^iooo a year, and his servant or officer under 
" him Wm. Watkins (who has been Sub.-Commr. two years and a half,) has bought estates worth ;^200 a 
" year. They are all Jones's creatures." Wm. Watkins was appointed a Sub-Commr. of '.Sequestration in 
S. Wales 7 Feb. 1650. He was one of those members at Oxford who signed the loyal Letter to the Earl 
of Essex in the interests of peace 27 Jan 1644, but afterwards changed sides. He was living at Court

28 Sept. 1643. The year before he had built his new house, " The Argoed," overlooking the Wye, and to 
shew boldly which side he belonged to, had place a large device of the Royal Arms wrought in iron over

influence of the Earl of Essex) Feb. to April 1593, and was slain in Ireland Aug. 1599. The Cal. State 
Papers 1599 contains a letter from John Chamberlain to Dudley Carleton dated i Aug. saying, " Sir 
Coniers Clifford is intended to go to Lough Foyle with 3000 men," and another of 23 Aug., as follows : — 
" Sir Coniers' defeat was very foul. He was at the Curlewes in O'Donnell's country, and besides himself 
and Sir Alex. Ratcliffe, 8 or 9 commanders were lost, and above 240 men. Capt. Cosbie is much blamed 
for causing the first disorder by wheeling about, but some say Sir Coniers went not soldier-Hke to work, 
and when he saw his error, and might have escaped, would not outlive such a loss."

gave the late King ^800, sued out his pardon under the Great Seal of Oxford, and then lived in N. 
Wales, till most of the garrisons were reduced to obedience. That he countenanced Poyer, and had him 
continued Gov. of Pembroke till his revolting, and after he was praclaimed traitor by Pari., sent him 
provisions during the siege. That contrary ta the order for malignants to leave London, he Was in town 
all the last insurrection, and did not help the Pari, army in the siege of Pembroke. That he was excepted 
from the Act for a general fine for S. Wales, because he was sequestered for acting with Laugharne and 
Poyer, and from Anglesea articles, because he did not surrender in Feb. 1646, and corresponded with 
Gerard. That his house is a refuge for notorious delinquents, and that he now harbours Laugharne's 
wife in his house in Dean's Yard, and she is constantly railing against Pari., though she received much 
favour from the Lieut. Gen. when in the county. Request that his estate m Anglesea worth ;^iooo a year, 
may be sequestered, and that the State may not be moved by his deceitful allegations, trying to excuse 
himself."

" royal navy, app. Commrs. for executing the oflace of Gov. and Commander-in-Chief in and over the 
"island of Trinidad." An alleged act of cruelty committed in his official character as Gov. of Trinidad 
involved Gen. Picton in tedious litigation and great expense, with the result however of completely 
vindicating his character as a just and humane man. The Duke of Queensberry offered him a present of 
;^ioooo to pay his legal expenses, which he respectfully declined, and when the inhabitants of Trinidad 
voted him the sum of ^^5000 for the same purpose as a token of their entire approval of his conduct, he 
took an early opportunity presented by the outbreak of a disastrous fire on the island, to return that sum, 
which he handed over to the fund raised to assist the sufferers from that calamity. Soon afterwards how-

the following year, Lt.-Gen. Picton left London on 11 June, and took command of the Fifth Division and 
was wounded at Quatre Bras 16 June. Two days later " the right hand of Wellington," at he was styled, 
found a soldier's death on the historic plain of Waterloo, shot through the head, when leading a desperate 
charge of his infantry against a solid square of French cavalry, at the end of that memorable day " In 
Lieut.-Gen. Sir T. Picton," said the Duke of Wellington in his Despatch, " His Majesty has sustained the 
" loss of an of&cer who has frequently distinguished himself in his service, and he fell gloriously leading 
" his division to a charge with bayonets, by which one of the most serious attacks made by the enemy on 
" our position was defeated." He was bur. 3 July 1815 in the family vault in the burial ground of St 
George, Hanover Square, aged 57, and the House of Commons ordered a monument to his memory to be

was the only Prime Minister ever returned by a Welsh constituency. On 8 March 1711 Mr Harley was 
stabbed with a penknife by the Marquis de Guiscard, while under examination before a Committee of the 
Privy Council at Whitehall, and had a narrow escape from assassination. Pope celebrated his memory 
in the following lines : 

" A soul supreme, in each hard instance tried, 

Above all pain, all anger, and all pride. 

The rage of power, the blast of public breath. 

The lust of lucre, and the dread of death." 
An affray took place 2 Oct 1693 in the streets of New Radnor between Col. Thomas Lewis of Harpton 
(the aggressor,) and his bro. Nourse Lewis on one side, and Robert Harley on the other, in which swords
