PREFACE. 

This work is intended to set forth the entire Baronetage, 
giving a short account of all holders of the dignity, as also of 
their wives, with (as far as can be ascertained) the name and 
description of the parents of both parties. It is arranged on 
the same principle as The Complete Peerage (eight vols., 8vo., 
1884-98), by the same Editor, save that the more convenient form 
of an alphabetical arrangement has, in this case, had to be 
abandoned for a chronological one; the former being practically 
impossible in treating of a dignity in which every holder may 
(and very many actually do) bear a different name from the 
grantee. (*) 

Baronetcies, will, accordingly, be here treated of according to 
the date of their creation; thus, the reign of James I will 
be first dealt with and will comprise the Unglish Baronetcies 
(1611-1625) and the Irish Baronetcies (1619-1625) conferred by 
that King ; then will follow the reign of Charles I, which will 
comprise the Unglish, Irish and Scotch (or Nova Scotia) Baronetcies 
(these last having been first instituted in this reign in 1625) 
conferred (1625-1649) by that King. See fuller prospectus on 
p. 272. 

The date of creation is put within square brackets after 
each Baronet, inasmuch as the territorial description of a grantee 
(a description which, in many caseSjC") does not exist) is not, by 

(*) Besides the cases (more numerous than would be imagined) where the 
heir, by royal licence, or otherwise, has changed his name, there are many 
Baronetcies granted with special remainder to famiUes of a different name to 
that of the grantee, e.g., Foots, cr. 1660, with rem. to Onslow ; Bowtek, cr. 
1678 with rem. to Gorinq ; Babkow, cr. 1784, with rem. to Cbawlet- Boevey, 
etc. 

(*>) Thus for instance, the description of Francis Cottington, cr. a Bart, by 

I James I, 15 Feb. 1622/3, is simply "Secretary to Charles, Prince of Wales"; 

that of Thomas Aylesbury, cr. a Bart, by Charles I, 29 April 1627, is ''one of 

the Masters of Requests," while, later on, in 1746, William Gooch was cr. a 

Bart, as "Lieut. Governor of Virginia''; in 1755, Horatio Mann as "Envoy at

the grant of a Baronetcy, made hereditary. In a few cases where 
two Baronetcies of the same name have been created in the same 
year, the numerals "1" and "2" are added after such date, 
thus, in the case of the two Baronetcies of Molyneux, "[1611(1)]" 
signifies that it was the first of that name created in- that year, 
and "[1611(2)] t^at it was the second so created. 

The letters " [S.] " and " [I.] " put before the date of creation, 
denote severally that the Baronetcy is one of "Scotland" (or 
Nova Scotia) or of Ireland. The letters " [E.] " for England, 



the Court of Florence"; in 1764, George Brydges Rodney as " Vice Admiral"; 
in 1765, Charles Knowles as "Admiral of the Blue"; in 1766, John Moore 
as " Admiral of the Red." Thus in a single year, 1813, we have the Baronetcies 
of Sheaffe, " Major General "; of Duckworth, " Admiral of the Blue "; of Cakes, 
"Lieut. General"; of Rowley, " Capt, R.N."; of Broke, " Capt. R.N."; and of 
Hewett, " General in the Army." In the next year, 1814, we have the Baronetcies 
of Beresford, "Capt. R.N."; of Grey, "Capt. R.N."; of Wylie, "Physician to 
the Emperor of Russia"; of Blackwood, "Rear Admiral"; of CoUier, "Capt. 
R.N."; of Hoste, "Capt. R.N." In the next year, 1815, we have those of 
Hamilton, " Lieut. Gen." ; of Campbell, " Lieut. Gen." ; of McMahon, " Master 
of the Rolls in Ireland " ; of Campbell, " Lieut. Colonel." In the next year, 
1816, those of Ochterlony "Major General"; of Brownrigg, "Lieut. General"; 
of Ogle, "Admiral of the Red"; of Floyd, "General in the Army," and of 
Elphinstone, "Lieut. Colonel." In 1660, the territorial description "of London" 
was given to Gould, Adams, Allen, Humble, Robinson, Brown, Backhouse, 
Cutler, Foote, and Gardiner, grantees of Baronetcies ; in like manner, that " of 
Westminster," in 1662, to Long; in 1698, to Germaine; in 1723, to Frederick; 
etc. In many cases (probably most) the estate by which the grantee is 
described, has been alienated by one of his successors in the dignity, as, for instance 
(to go no further than the first Baronetcy), was that " of Redgrave, co. Suffolk," 
about 1690, by Sir Robert Bacon, the 5th Baronet [1611]. In that family 
the following curious incident occurred as to the territorial designation " of 
Gillingham, co. Norfolk," being that of Nicholas Bacon, the grautee of a Baronetcy 
in 1662. That Baronetcy became extinct in 1685, when the estate of Gilling- 
ham devolved on the last holder's cousin. Sir Henry Bacon, 3d Bart. [1627], 
whose ancestor had been cr. u, Bart, in 1627, as "of Mildenhall, co. Suffolk." 
The estate of Mildenhall, however, had been alienated before 1685, at which 
date the holder of the Baronetcy of Bacon, which, in 1627, was " of Milden- 
hall " became (by possession of the estate) " of Gillingham,," though the 
Baronetcy of Bacon, which, in 1662, was " of GilUngham," was extinct. In 
1765, the Baronetcy of Bacon, which, in 1611, was "of Redgrave" (an estate, 
which had long since been aUenated) devolved on the 8th Baronet of the 
creation of 1627, and the two Baronetcies (1611 and 1627) became united and 
continue to be so held by his posterity. 



PREFACE. Vll 

" [G.B.] " for Great Britain, and " [U.K.] " for the United Kingdom, 
are sometimes used (when required for the sake of clearness), but 
must be understood when absent. 

The index at the end of each volume will shew the surname of 
every holder (being a Commoner) of any Baronetcy created during 
the period treated of therein, while a general index at the end of 
the work (the incorporation of all these several indexes) will 
shew the same during the entire period. 

As to the term " Baronet," it is here used in the same sense as 
it was by Thomas Fuller in his Worthies, who (under Sir John 
Darell, Bart., of Berkshire) writes, "We meddle not with ancient 
Babonets, finding that word promiscuously blended with Banneeets 
(Sir Ralph Fane in a patent(») passed unto him [by Edward VI 
in 1550] is expressly termed a Baronet) but insist on their 
new erection in [1611] the ninth of Eling James. "('') 

Baronetcies of England were instituted (as above stated) by 
James I, on 22 May 1611, who also, on 30 Sep. 1619, instituted 
Baronetcies of Ireland, while Baronetcies of Scotland, or of Nova 
Scotia, were instituted by Charles I on 26 May 1625. The creation 
of the last two classes ceased respectively at the date of the 
Union with Scotland, 1 May 1707, and with Ireland, 1 Jan. 1801. 
After the first date. Baronetcies of Great Britain took the place 
of English and Scotch Baronetcies till the last date, since which, 
all creations are styled Baronetcies of the United Kingdom. 

Much interesting and original information respecting " the 
institution and early history of the dignity of Baronet " is given 
in The Herald amd Genealogist (vol. iii, pp. 193-212, 341-352, 
449-458) in an article, so headed, contributed by its learned and 

(°) In the Oenealogical Magazine (vol. iii, p. 55) this grant (Pat. Roll, 4 Ed. VI) 
of the " order, state, rank, honour and dignity of a. Baronet," is set out in full. 

C") Besides Sir Halph Fane, or Vane, above mentioned, whose dignity seems 
to have been but personal, William de la Pole and his heirs had (according 
to Sir Robert Cotton, the Antiquary) letters patent of 13 Ed. Ill [1339], 
conferring on them the dignity of a Baronet in return for a sum of money; 
a precedent more in accordance with the Baronetcies conferred by James I. 
" By the statutes of Richard II, every Archbishop, Bishop, Abbot, Prior, Duke, 
Earl, Baron, Baronet and Knight of the Shire, was commanded to appear in 
Parliament, according to ancient usage, and in an attaint, under Henry VI, one 
of the jury challenged himself because his ancestors had been Baronets and 
Seigneurs des Parlesments." [Debrett's Baronetage, etc., p. zxxiii, edit. 1900]. 



Viii PREFACE. 

accomplished editor, John Gough Nichols. In this it is stated 
(p. 346) that though James I engaged "for himself, his heirs and 
successors," that the number of Baronets in the Kingdom of 
England should never exceed 200, and that, though he eventually 
created 204 (or 205, if Vavasour, a creation of 22 June 1631, 
with the precedency of 29 June 1611, be reckoned) yet "he did 
not depart from his bargain, inasmuch as five vacancies had arisen, 
not by extinction, but by promotion to the peerage, mz.. Sir Robert 
Dormer to an English Barony in 1615 ; Sir Thomas Ridgeway, Sir 
William Maynard and Sir William Hervey to Irish Baronies in 
1616 and 1620, and Sir Thomas Beaumont to an Irish Viacountcy 
in 1622." This mode, however, of reckoning mergers as equivalent 
to extinctions is not necessary, for six actual extinctions occurred 
in the lifetime of James I, four of them being before 1623, in 
which year the last English Baronetcies created by him were 
conferred. These extinctions were (1) St. Paul, 28 Oct. 1613; 
(2) Bigg, 11 June 1621; (3) Clere, 21 Aug. 1622; (4) Forster, in 
or about 1623; (5) Ashby, 23 Dec. 1623, and (6) Courteen, in 
or about 1624. Whether, however, the King was aware of these 
extinctions, or' of these mergers in the peerage, before he proceeded 
to create English Baronetcies above the number of 200, is very 
questionable. It is more probable that, like his son and his other 
successors, he would, had he lived longer, have disregarded the 
stipulated limitation altogether, as he certainly did one clause 
thereof which stipulated that, failing the heir male of the body of 
the grantee, "the first number of 200 should thereby be allowed 
to decrease and be reduced to a lesser number." 

The •precedency of the Scotch and Irish Ba/ronetcies in relation to 
those of England and Great Britain is left undetermined by the 
respective acts of Union with Scotland and Ireland. The general 
opinion, held for more than half a century after the Irish Union, was 
that, by analogy, they followed the precedency assigned under those 
acts to other hereditary dignities, i.e., Peerages. One thing, however, 
is certain, viz., that either they were, or they were not, afiected by 
these acts. If the former, the precedency in Englamd, ScoUamd 
and Irela/nd of the Scotch Baronets is next after those of England 
and before those of Great Britain, while the precedency, as above, of 
the Irish Baronets is next after those of Great Britain, and before 
those of the United Kingdom. If, however, Scottish and Irish 



PREFACE. IX 

Baronetcies were not (analogously) so affected, their precedency in 
England would (still) be in the case of Scotch Baronetcies below 
those of England, and in the case of Irish Baronetcies below 
those of Great Britain (such having been their precedence in 
England at the time of the respective Unions), but there would 
be this difference, that in Scotland (and in Scotland alone) the 
Scotch Baronets would precede all others, and in Ireland (and in 
Ireland alone) the Irish Baronets would, also, precede all others, such 
having been the precedency that existed in each of those Kingdoms 
before the respective acts of Union. Sir Charles George Young, Garter 
(1842-69), probably the best authority in all matters of "precedence," 
writes (9 June 1863) as under, "By the act of Union in 1801, 
no direct provision is made for the precedence of Baronets of 
Ireland any more than in the prior case for those of Scotland, 
which, though hereditary dignities, were overlooked in these acts. 
By analogy (and no other reason can be applied) their rank must 
be determined by those rules which govern superior hereditary 
dignities ... so that, regard being had to the ranking of 
the Baronets of Scotland and Ireland after those of England, Sir 
James [should be ' Charles '] Coote, although he may retain his 
precedence of 1620 among Baronets of Ireland as a class, would, 
nevertheless, give place to Sir James Pergusson [whose ancestor 
was], created a Baronet of England [sic, but doubtless a mis- 
print for 'of Scotland'] in 1703,(*) upon occasions where the 
respective orders are ranked in public proceedings, and this analogy 
is recognised and admitted in the Boll of Precedence in Ireland, 
issued by ' Ulster ' [Sir John Bernard Burke] himself from Dublin 
Castle in 1854." It appears, however, that " Ulster " changed his 
views some nine years later, for he writes, on 9 June 1863, in 
answer to " Garter," as under, " To the doctrine insisted on by Sir 
Charles Young, that an act of Pari, which alters the precedence 
of one body of men [i.e., Peers] can, by analogy, be made to take 

(*) This Scotch Baronetcy is, apparently, quoted, as the letter has reference 
to the relative precedence of Scotland and Ireland only. The relative precedency 
of the Baronets of the three Kingdoms would have been better illustrated, 
by the substitution of " Stirling " (in lieu of " Fergusson "), that dignity cr. 
15 Dec 1800, being the last creation of a Baronetcy of Great Britain and, 
accordingly, one which, at the date of the Irish Union (1 Jan. ISOl), ranked 
unquestionably in England next immediately above all Irish Baronetoie

away the precedence of others not named in it, I demur in toto 
. Baronets of England, Ireland and Scotland, hold at this 
moment the exact precedence granted to them by their respective 
patents, according to the priority and seniority of their creations 
unaffected by the acts of Union, which acts do not name Baronets 
at all. Consequently, Sir Charles Coote, Baronet of Ireland, does 
retain his precedence of 1620, and should not give place to Sir 
James Ferguson [whose ancestor was], created a Baronet of Scotland 
in 1703" [See Herald and Genealogist, vol. i, pp. 555-558, in 
an article, on the relative precedence of the cities of Dublin and 
Edinburgh]. It is difficult to follow the late(») "Ulster's" 
argument. No doubt the Baronetcy of Coote retains "the exact 
precedence " granted to it by its patent, one which places it (with 
the exception of Annesley) probably above all other existing Irish 
Baronetcies. Irish Baronetcies may possibly (perhaps probably) rank 
in Ireland (as they did previous to the Irish Union) before all 
other Baronetcies whatsoever, but neither by express words, nor 
by analogy, does the act of Union give them a precedency in 
England or Scotland over the Baronetcies of England, Scotland, or 
Great Britain, which they previously had never enjoyed.C") 

The great diflaculty which presents itself in a work treating of 
Baronetcies is to ascertain the persons who, 6y succession, are 
entitled to that dignity. There is, however, in many cases, no 
little difficulty in determining as to whether, or no, the fact of the 
creation itself may fairly be assumed. The enrollment of the patent 
on the patent rolls is, of course, the best evidence (next to the 
actual production of the original) of the creation of the dignity, 
but its non-enrolment by no means disproves its existence. Passing 
over the later years of the reign of Charles I (when, owing to the 
Civil War, such enrolments were the exception rather than the 
rule) it is astonishing to find that no less than twenty English 
Baronetcies (of whose existence there has never been any doubt) are

in that plight out of the 204 that were created by James I. These are 
(1) Napier; (2) Bayning; (3) Temple; (4) Penyston, all four created 
24 Sep. 1611; (5) Blakiston, created 27 May 1615; (6) Grey; 
(7) Salisbury; (8) Mill; (9) Phelipps ; (10) Foulis; (11) Hervey; 
(12) Mackworth; (13) Ley; (14) Villiers ; (15) Hicks; (16) 
Beaumont; (17) Dryden; (18) Airmyn ; (19) Forster ; and (20) 
Chester, of which the last named fifteen were created in 1619 
or 1619/20. With respect to the first nine of these, there being 
no signet bill or other document respecting their creation, their 
names do not appear in the valuable list of the Creation of 
Baronets, 1611-1646, in the appendix to the 47th Report of the 
Deputy Keeper of the Public Records. The names, however, of 
the- other eleven do so appear, as the signet bills for their creations 
(in one case, Beaumont, being only a fragment) exist, besides, 
also, that in one case, Foulis, there is the " warrant for granting 
receipt of £1,100 on his creation as Baronet." 

The compiler, has, however, endeavoured to include all, who, 
rightly, or wrongly, have assumed the title of Baronet, though 
when he himself is not satisfied with their right thereto he has 
ventured to call attention to the want (or possible want) of proper 
evidence. No check, however, exists to anyone assuming a Baronetcy 
and such assumptions unfortunately, in rapidly increasing number, 
pass muster but too frequently in Society, and even (it is believed) 
at Court, while Official gazetting of naval, military, and other 
appointments given to " soi-disant Baronets,'' are (it is feared) not 
uncommon. The withholding of Royal and Official recognition 
until proper proof is given of the succession to a Baronetcy seems 
the only practical method of restraining these ever increasing and, 
in many cases, preposterous assumptions. (*) It may, of course, 
be a question as to the desirability of withholding recognition from 
the existing holders of (doubtful or fictitious) Baronetcies, but, at 
all events, no hardship would be caused by a notice that no person, 
who succeeded to the dignity of a Baronet on or after a certain 
date next ensuing, would be recognised as such, until proper 

(») In Foster's Baronetage for 1883, no less than sixiy-five Baronets (then 
living) are relegated to the part of that work called " Chaos," as being 
among " the more questionable assumptions," to which statement is added 
the remark that "it is, however, more than probable that there are weak 
points in some of the other titles which I have not discovered." 



XU PREFACE. 

proof of his right to such succession had been given. This would 
gradually and effectively (without any violent measures having to 
be adopted) effect the purpose, though it would not interfere with 
the existing style of any person, save of those who, after due 
warning and in defiance of such notice, had assumed the 
dignity, without having proved their right thereto. The heir 
apparent of a Baronetcy (unlike the heir apparent to a peerage) 
has no distinctive title (such as "Honble.," or "Lord"), so that 
he would, by this measure, be only detained in the position 
he had always occupied, instead of being recognised at once in a 
new one to which he had not proved himself to be entitled. (*) The 
Baronets themselves have recently become alive to the want of a 
proper court to determine the claim of succession to that dignity, 
and are endeavouring to obtain one. It is to be hoped that 
whatever may be the measures that they are able to enforce 
against the existing pretenders they will not fail to obtain the 
power by some such method as this to bar any future assumptions 
of the title.

remarks thereon by (J. G. Nichols) the well known editor of that work. 



LIST OF PRINTED BARONETAGES,(») 

PREVIOUS TO 1900. 

[Note. — Those works which contain merely the existing holder of the dignity, 
with no account of his predecessors therein, are excluded. Such are the 
second (1819) and all later editions of Stockdale's Present Baronetage; such 
also Dod's (most useful) Peerage, Baronetage and Knightage, first issued in 
1841, and, with three exceptions (1843, 1845 and 1847), continued annually to 
the present date, the vol. for 1900 being the fifty-seventh issue ; and such 
also, since 1840, Debrett's Baronetage, etc., of which the edition for this year 
(1900) is stated to be the " ninety -second year."] 

A-D. 1720.—" The Baronettage of England, etc., by Arthur Collins " [the well 
known editor of Collins' Peerage\ 2 vols., 8vo. This work is incomplete, 
dealing only with the creations of James I, and containing but three-quarters 
or so of them, as it ends with Palmer, a creation of 29 June 1621. It, 
however, unlike any of its succesors, comprises all the creations (whether 
existing or extinct) within the period of which it treats, save only those 
which were then (1720) merged in an English peerage, and of which its 
editor had accordingly treated in bis Peerage. This work was re-issued in 
1742, with (merely) a new title page.

vol. being in two parts and usually bound in two vols.), 8vo. This is the 
same work, but greatly enlarged, as the one next above. Its editor, in the 
preface, acknowledges bis obligations to " Arthur Collins, Esq. , the author of

exist for such a purpose — the collections made by Peter le Neve, Esq., 
Norroy " [1704-27]. These, as far as they relate to the Baronetage, are now 
in the library of the College of Arms, and W. Courthope [Somerset Herald, 
1854-66] had " free access to them " when compiling his Extinct Baronetage 
[1839], so that such Baronetcies as are not noticed by Wotton, from having 
been extinct before his period, are dealt with, by Courthope, in this work. See

by W. Courthope [afterwards, 1839-66, Rouge Croix Pursuivant and Somerset 
Herald] and published in 1835, in 1 vol., 8vo. ; the eighth edition, ed. by 
G. W. CoUen [afterwards, 1841-78, Portcullis Pursuivant], was published in 
1840, in the same form. After that date this work ceased to contain more 
than the notice of such members of the Baronetage and their collaterals as 
were then living.

vols, relating solely to the Peerage) vols, vi and vii contain the English Baronetage 
then existing ; vol. viii, The Baronetage of Scotland, and vol. ix, The Baronetage 
of Ireland.{'^) These all relate only to such dignities as were existing at that date. 

C) Collins, is often credited with being the actual author of this work, 
an error which obtained great circulation from the well known Sir Egertou 
Brydges having stated in the preface to his valuable edition (1812) of Collins' 
Peerage, that Arthur Collins "reprinted and completed, in 1741 in 5 vols., 8vo., 
his incomplete Baronetage of 1720," to which [erroneous] statement Brydges adds 
(most justly) that this Baronetage of 1741 is " an admirable work." 

(•>) John Almon, celebrated as a publisher of political pamphlets, printed the 
Peerage of Scotland, 1767 ; the Peerage of Ireland, 1768, and that of England, 
Scotland and Ireland, 1769. John Debrett, was, in or before 1802, his successor. 

{') For a full account of these 5 vols., see Moule's Bibliotheca Beraldica, 
p. 498. Betham contributed also to a smaller Baronetage published by W. 
Miller in 1804, being the first edition of Debrett's Baronetage. 

(d) This bulky (though uncritical) work is especially valuable for the Irish 
Baronetage, which had never before been dealt with, as also was the case in 
regard to that of Scotland, other then as to certain families settled in England, 
who had obtained Scotch Baronetcies. > 



PRINTED BARONETAGES. XV 

1827-1900. — lu 1827 the work so well known as Burke's Peerage and Baronetage 
first appeared under the name of A Genealogical and Ueraldie Dictionary of 
the Peerage and Baronetage of the United Kingdom for MDCCCXXVI, by 
"John Burke, Esq.," 8vo. It was claimed for this work, which " inaugurated the 
eucylopedic form in treating of our aristocratic genealogy," that in it " all the 
[existing] British hereditary dignities were then, for the first time, brought together 
and combined in one alphabetical arrangement " [i.e., Baronetcies were for the first 
time intermingled alphabetically with peerages]. In the second edition (1828) 
" the [existing] Baronets of Ireland and Nova Scotia, which [said the editor] 
are not to be found in any other book of reference(*), are inserted. The fourth 
edition (1832) was (alone of all the series) in 2 vols,, all subsequent editions 
being in one large vol. of increasing bulk, till in the sixty-first edition (1899) 
the number of pages amounted to (cxxxvi + 1848) 1984, and in the sixty- 
second edition (1900) to (olxvi -f- 1916), 2082. After the death of the first editor, 
John Burke (27 March 1848, aged 61) his son, the well known Sir John Bernard 
Burke, C.B. , Ulster King of Arms (1853-92), who had been for some years 
joint editor with his father, continued the work with great success till his 
death (12 Dec. 1892, aged 80), when his sous succeeded him therein, the last 
(1900) edition, however, being edited by " Ashworth P. Burke " [alone]. This 
was of a yet lai'ger size than the previous ones. 

1880 to 1883- — " The Baronetage and Knightage of the British Empire " (as 
then existing), by Joseph Foster. 1 vol., 8vo. The first edition appeared 
(together with the Peerage) in 1880, and the last (pp. 786) in 1883. This 
work is chiefly remarkable for the "Chaos" [pp. 693-708], in which persons 
are placed "claiming the dignity of Baronet, but regarding whose claims 
there does not appear to be accessible the 'primCi. facie evidence, which would 
justify their inclusion among those whose titles are unquestioned." 

The above works, excepting the fragmentary one of 1720 (dealing only with 
creations during the first ten years of the existence of the dignity of a Baronet), 
deal only with Baronetcies then existing, but the two following, excluding the 
existing Baronetcies, deal with Baronetcies then extinct, viz. — 

1835. — " Synopsis I of the Extinct Baronetage of England, containing the 
date of the creation with succession of Baronets and their respective marriages 
and time of death, by William Courthope, Esq., editor of the improved editions 
of Debrett's Peerage and Baronetage " [and, afterwards, 1839-54, Rouge Croix ' 
Pursuivant, and, 1854-66, Somerset Herald]. Small 8vo., pp. (xii + 256) 358. 

1838 is the date on the illuminated title page of The Extinct and 
Dormant Baronetcies of England, by John Burke and John Bernard Burke."('') 
1 vol., 8vo. A second edition (none has since been issued) of this most 
valuable work has on the title page the date of 1844, though the preface is 
dated " July 1841." At the end of it are added The Extinct and Dormant Baronet- 
cies of Ireland and Scotland, as also some " addenda " (pp. 509-604) and an unpaged 
"supplement" of four pages, of which last but twenty-five copies were printed. 

(") This, however, was not the case. See the Baronetage of these two 
Kingdoms in Playfair's British Family Antiquity, 1809-12. 

Q') See as to these writers under the dates 1827-1900, above.

BACON 

(Premier Baronetcy) : 
cr. 22 May 1611. 

[Note. — With this Baronetcy the Baronetcy of Bacon, cr. 29 July 1627, has been 
united since 30 April 1755.] 

I. 1611. "Nicholas Bacon, of Eedgrave, co. SufFolk, Knt.,"(*) 

B. and h. of Sir Nicholas Bacon, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal 
(1559-79), by his 1st wife, Jane, da. of William Fbenlbt, of West Creting, Suffolk, 
and of London (being elder br., of the half blood, to the still more celebrated Lord 
Chancellor, Francis BaconjC") afterwards Baron Verulam and Viscount St. Albans), 
was b. about 1540; Pensioner of Gonville and Cains Coll., Cambridge, Nov. 1554 ; 
student of Gray's Inn, 1562 ; Sheriff of Suffolk, 1581-82, and of Norfolk, 1597-98 ; 
M.P. for Beverley, 1563-67 ; and for Suffolk, 1572-83 ; Knighted by Queen Elizabeth,

(^) The style of each grantee (here given in inverted commas), and the date of 
creation, during the reigns of Jame.s I and Charles I, are taken from the Creations 
of Peers and Baronets, 1483 to 1646, in the 47th Rep. of the D.K. of the Public 
Records. 

(*>) It appears to have been by Francis Bacon's advice, given in 1606 (some five or 
six years before it was carried into effect) that the order of Baronets was instituted ; 
so that " it is not surprising to find that the first of the new dignity was Sir Nicholas 
Bacon," his eldest brother, and the head of the family. See Notes and Queries, 
3d S., xii, 168. 

(°) He was the first of a batch of eighteen persona with whom the order originated. 
This was followed, about five weeks later (29 June 1611), by a larger batch of fifty- 
two (53 according to Dugdale and others, who, erroneously, include " Dallison " 
therein), and, subsequently, on 24 Sep. by one of four, and on 25 Nov. following by one 
of seventeen, after which "creations (91 in all, ending with that of Holte, all being in 
] 611), each creation in this reign, and for the most part in those following, is dated on 
a separate day. There were " twenty-two patents originally intended for the first seal 
(22 May 1611), of which four " were stayed " viz., those for (1) Sir Geokge Teenohaed, 
of Wolverton, Dorset ; (2) his son in law, SiE John Stranqwats, of Melbury in that 
county, " subsequently conspicuous for his opposition to the measures of the Court ; " 
(3) Sib Thomas Walsinqham, of Scadbury, Kent, who d. 1639, aged 69 ; (4) 
Sir Thomas' cousin german (by the mother), SiE Thomas Baenabdiston, of Ketton, 
Suffolk, who d. 23 Dec, 1619, two of whose great grandsons were, in 1663, created 
Baronets. See a fuller account in Her. et Gen., iii, 208—212,

family, correcting many previous inaccuracies. See also Herald and Genealogist,

pp. 109—131. 

(b) There appear to have been two Knights d.ubbed within a few weeks of each 
other, each being called "Edward Peyto," vis., (1) cne, in Feb. 1610/1, who (see 
Philipot's List of Knights) is described of " co. Warwick," and who doubtless, 
therefore, was the Sir Edward Peyto, who was of Chesterton, co. Warwick, and (2) the 
other, 28 March 1611, to whom there is no designation of County, and who, 
presumably, is the Edward Peyton, of the text. It is certain that this Edward 
Peyton was Knighted between Nov. 1607 (when he is called " Esq." in the baptismal 
register of his son, at Iselham), and before Aug. 1611, when he is admitted, as a 
" Knight " to Gray's Inn.

Dublin. His widow was bur,, at St. Audoen's aforesaid 19 Sep. 1730. Her will pr. 
1730 at Dublin. 

[After his death the succession seems very doubttul(<i), but the title was assumed 
and is recognised in Wotton's (1741) Baronetage, as below.] 

("•) In the admon. of 1693, he is described " of Iselham,'' though as having died 
at St. Giles in the Fields, but the sale of Iselham was probably before 1657. See 
Iter, and Oen., vol. vi, p. 97, note 2. 

C") This, apparently, is the last entry in the Iselham register of the name of 
Peyton. 

(") Wotton's [1741] Baronetage, as also the earlier one (1720) of Arthur Collins, 
where the date of death is given as 1666. There seems no reason to question this 
date, as letters of admon. are frequently granted many years after the death. It 
is certain that he was dead before 1673, and probably before 1672, as his son was 
appointed a Lieut., as " Sir John " in June 1672, and a Quartermaster, as "Bart." 
in 1673. His burial at St. Giles, however, is not in the extracts from those 
registers in Col. Chester's collection. See note " a." 

(*) The male issue of his father (the 3d Bart.) was probably extinct, his only Burv. 
brother, presumably, the " Lieut. Thomas Peyton," who was bur. 3 March 1674/5 at 
St. Martin's in the Fields, being said to have d. s.p. — but, of his uncles, (1) Edward 
the 2d sou of the 2d Bart., was living in 1632, was in Holy Orders, and left three 
sons (Edward, Robert, and Henry), of whom no more is known. (2) Robert, the 3d son 
of the said 2d Bart., bap. at Bromley, Kent, 23 July 1611, was living 1632; (3) Thomas 
the 4th son (the only son of the second wife), is the ancestor (through his third son, 
Charles), of Yelverton Peyton, who, in 1720, assumed the title, and through his 
second sou Robert, of the family of Peyton, settled in Virginia, who, presumably, 
were the rightful heirs of the Baronetcy in and after 1720.

that the male descendants, in Virginia, of the Peyton Baronets are extinct, and that 
Col. John Lewis Peyton (said to claim that title) ia only collaterally related to the 1st 
Bart., he being 9th in descent (as there shewn) from Thomas Peyton, from whom 
the said 1st Bart, was 5th. It is not, however, very clear whether the successor in 
Virginia to Robert, the first settler {d. 1685) was not (as m page 68 of that work) 
"his eldest son SiE John Peyton, of Isleham " [Virginia], who d. s.p.m. legit., and 
was sue. by his nephew (son of his br. Robert) " Sib John Peyton, Bart., of Isleham. 
In this line the title and estate remained till 1776," when, " after the declaration 
of American independence the title was dropped. The estate of Isleham, however, 
remained in this line till about 1830, when, the male line failing, it was sold for 
distribution among the female descendants of the late Baronet (by hereditary right) 
who died in that year."

In the annual issue of Dod's Peerage and Baronetage, 1870 to 

1884, no mention is made of this title, but in that from 1885 to 1887 it is 
stated that " this title, which is presumed to have become extinct in 1869, has 
been ossumed by Mr. Francis Clifton, of The Hollies, Fulham, S.W." From 
the issue in 1888 of that work, and the subsequent ones, the following 
information is obtained.

I. 1611. "Thomas Gerrard, of BrynnejC*) co. Lancaster, Knt.," 

B. and h. of Sir Thomas Gerard, of Bryn aforesaid, by Elizabeth, 1st 
da. and coheir of Sir John Poet, of Etwall, co. Derby, b. 1560 ; matric. at Oxford 

(a) His uncle. Gen. Sir Arthur Benjamin Clifton, G.C.B., the heir presumptive to 
the Baronetcy, died unm. but a few days before him, 7 March 1869, at 52 Old 
Steyne, Brighton, in his 99th year. The representation of the family devolved on the 
late Baronet's only sister and h., Marianne-Margaret, who m., 12 June 1842, Sir Henry 
Hervey Bruce, 4th Bart. [1804], and had issue. The estates, however, passed to 
Henry Robert Markham (grandson and h. of the Ven, Robert Markham, Archdeacon 
of York, by Prances, the only sister of the 7th and 8th Barts.), who, by royal lie. 
dat. 6 Aug. 1869, took the name of Clifton. 

(*) It is to be observed that the existence of a 10th Bart., who enjoyed the title 
from 1869 to 1880, is, here presumed, who (in the edit, of Dod's Peerage, etc., of 
1893) is said to have been " the heir male of the 4th Barfc.," and that on his death, 
and the consequent failure of issue male from the 4th Bart., it was " claimed by the 
present holder and his predecessors [sic] as descendants of the Ist Baronet.' 

(°) No indication is given as to the descent of this gentleman from any of the 
Clifton Baronets (or even as to his parentage), but as the issue male of the 4th Bart, 
is said to have failed (see note next above), and as the 3d and 2d Barts. d. s.p,, it 
must have been through the 1st Bart. only. 

(d) " Le Bryn " is iu the parish of Winwick, in the hundred of West Derby, co. 
Lancaster.

When it is remembered that the writer was grandson to a Duke ; in remainder 
to the (then dormant) Dukedom, and to the existing Earldom of Hertford, and that 
his descendant (the 6th Bart.) actually succeeded to both those dignities in 1750, 
these passages are certainly worthy of notice in proof of the estimation in which the 
dignity of Baronet was held in some quarters at its first institution." [Serald and 
Genealogist, vol. iii, p. 351, being part of an article " on the dignity of Baronet," by 
its accomplished editor, John Gough Nichols.]

(") The general impression, doubtless, was that the title had been altogether 
forfeited. Collins {Baronetage, 1720) says that "by reason of the aforesaid degrada- 
tion the title expired, though his descendants are yet possessed of Merton in com. 
Oxon." Wotton, who only deals with the [then] existing Baronetage, omits 
" Harington " altogether in his valuable work of 1741 ; Kimber, however, includes 
it in his work of 1771, but makes the then Bart., Sir James's father, Richard (whom, 
however, he does not style a Baronet), to be eldest son and successor [in 1680] of the 
degraded Baronet.

in his Baronetage (vol. i, p. 474), sub "Williamson," states that "Elizabetl 
da. of Sir Maurice Tresham, Bart." married Lyon Falconer, whose da. Elizabetl

(•>) Among the 52 Baronets created 29 June 1611, " Sir Roger DALLisoN,.of 
Laughton, Lincolnshire, Knt." (making the number 53), is erroneously placed in 
Dugdale's £ist between those of Tyrwhitt and Carr, all three being of the same 
county, i.e. Lincolnshire [List in Her. and Oen., vol. iii, p. 350]. As undoubtedly the 
precedency of 29 June 1611 was granted (though the grant was after the said Sir 
Roger's decease) to his son, on the creation of the Baronetcy, 27 Oct. 1624, this 
precise place among the numerous creations of 29 June 1611 would probably have 
been that of the dignity if the patent to the father had been sealed at that date. 
See under " Dallison," cr. 27 Oct. 1624. 

(") This Richard wasted the whole of his immense estates by gambling, and was 
found dead in the stable of a small inn, resting his head on the saddle of his pack 
horse. 

(*) The list of these is given in Dugdale's Ancient Usage of Arms (ed. by T. 0. 
Banks, 1812), as also in Burke's Commoners (edit. 1837, vol. i, pp. 688-697). The 
annual value of £4,000 (a sum that, in that list, is in very few instances exceeded) 
is ascribed to the estate of Sir Robert Carr.

MORDAUNT, or MORDAJSIT : 

cr. 29 June 1611. 

I. 1611. "Lb Straungb IVIordant, of Itlassingham Parva, co. 

Norfolk, Esq.," s. and h. of Henry Moedaunt,(^) of King's Lynn in 
that county, by Ann, da. of ( — ) Foley, of Beds, was 6. at Lynn, 1572 ; distinguished

1700, Robert Apreeoe, of Washingley, co. Huntingdon, and had issue, who inherited 
the Lincolnshire estates of Doddington and Honington. 

C") Called "Anne " (by mistake) in mar. reg. at St. Sepulchre's. 

(") Charlotte, sister of the half blood to the last Bart., da. of the 3d Bart., by Ma first 
wife, m. Thomas Pochin, of Barkby, co. Leicester. Their da., Charlotte, m. Charles 
James Packe, of Prestwold Hall, and eventually inherited the Caythorpe estates. 

C) On the M.I. at Caythorpe, to the 3d Bart , it is stated that he had eleven 
children by his 1st wife, all of whom, save Charlotte and Sarah, died unm., and that 
he had three sons and one daughter by his 2d wife, viz., " Anne-Charlotte, Henry, 
Robert and Edward " ; that " Sir Edward died Feb. 19, 1724/5, ffit. 65 ; Henry 
succeeded him, and died unmarried, Feb. 14, 1729, set. 27 ; Anne-Charlotte, Robert 
and Edward died young. This monument erected by the widow, Elizabeth." 

It would therefore seem that Edward died before his brother, Henry. In Collins' 
Baronetage (1720) it is stated that of the three sons by the 2d wife " only Henry 
and Edward are living." 

(^) This Henry was son of Robert Mordaunt, of Hempsted, co. Essex, by Barbara,

Thomas Fleetwood, Bart.," to Mary Bostock, and the will of the Baronet, who died in 
1802, mentions his cousins. Rev. Charles Berington and Rev. Thomas Berington, 
doubtless relatives of his mother, the wife of the 6th Bart, No Baronet of the name 
of Thomas Fleetwood appears to have died in Jan. 1780.

(a) His plays and poems are now almost forgotten, save the charming madrigal 
commencing " Phillis is my only joy." 

(b) It is said that he disapproved of his only da. and h., Catharine (b. 21 Dec. 1657), 
being the mistress of that king, by whom she was cr. Countess of Dorchester. This 
incident is alluded to by Dr. Johnson (when speaking of the wish for beauty) he 
writes in his Vanity of Human Wishes " And Sedley cursed the form that pleased 
a King." Her lack of beauty was, however (as a matter of fact), notorious, and it is 
doubtful whether her father (one of the most licentious men of his age) would 
feel any real resentment at the Royal honours (though of a. somewhat questionable 
kind) thus conferred on his daughter.

Luton. He surrendered the patent of his Baronetcy, with the intent that it should 
be regranted with the date of the old precedency (24 Sep. 1611), to himself and his 
issue male by his second niarriage.('') A patent to that effect was accordingly 
granted, dated 4 March 1660/1, the date, however, being but three days before his 
burial. He was bvr. 7 March 1660/1, at Luton. Will pr. 26 April 1661. 

III. 1661. Sir Robert Napier, Bart [1611], grandson and h., being 

s. and h. of Robert NAPrEE,(«) by Margaret, da. of Sir Edward 
Littleton, Ist Bart. [1627], which Robert last named, who was s. and h. ap. (by 
his 1st wife), of the 1st Bart. d. v.p., and was bur. 2 Oct. 1656, at Luton. He of 
right would have sue. to the Baronetcy{^) in March 1660/1, but, as he appears to have 
been disinherited by his grandfather, as to the estates, probably never assumed the 
title. He d. unm. and under age, and was bur. as " Mr. Robert Napire," 5 April 
1675, at Luton. 

IV. 1675. Sir John Napier, Bart. [1611 and 1661], of Luton Hoo 

aforesaid, uncle and h. male of the half blood, being 2d s. (but Ist' 

(a) None of the four Baronetcies (Napier, Bayning, Temple, and Penyston), which 
were cr. on 24 Sep. 1611, are enrolled on the Patent Rolls, and, consequently, do 
not appear among the Creations, 14SS—16i6, in the Appendix of the 47th Report of the 
Deputy Keeper of the Public Records. The compiler thereof (R. Douglas Trimmer) 
states (27 May 1899) that they are not either in the indexes " of the Privy Seals and 
Signed bills (Chancery) or of the Signet bills (Chapter House) under date, September 
1611." The description of the four grantees of these Baronetcies is therefore taken 
from Collins' Baronetage of 1720. These four Baronetcies (as well as the next batch 
of seventeen created on 25 Nov. following) are frequently misattributed to 1612 
instead of to 1611. 

(ti) This Alexander, who was second of the two sons (each named Alexander) of 
Sir Alexander Napier, of Merchistoun, in Scotland, was the first of his race, who 
settled in England, where he was popularly known as Sandy." 

(°) See p. 18, note, "c," sub " ToUemaohe." 

(d) This surrender by the holder (the 2d Bart.) of an English hereditary dignity, 
defeating the vested rights of posterity, is here treated as inoperative, it being 
doubtless illegal.

to a creditor. His widow was bur. at Stowe, 3 April 1655. 

(a) See p. 80, note "a," sub "Napier." 

(fc) The family of Temple ife ably dealt with in the Her. and Gen. (vol. iii, pp. 305- 
410, pp. 530-544, vol. iv, pp. 8-13, and vol. viii, pp. 510-514), where it is shewn that, 
notwithstanding their alleged descent in the male line from the Saxon Earls of 
Mercia (see Edmondson's Baronagium [vol. iii, p. 278], etc.), they " did not rise above 
the rank of small gentry until the latter part of the fifteenth century," and it was 
not till the seventeenth century that any member obtained the rank of knighthood. 

(') His yr. br., Anthony Temple, of Coughton, co. Warwick, is said, but whether 
truly or not is very doubtful (see Nat. Biogr, under "Temple, Sir William"), 
to have been father of Sir William Temple, Provost of Trinity College, Dublin, 
(1609-1627), who undoubtedly, by his son Sir John Temple, Master of the Rolls in 
Ireland, (1640-1677), was grandfather of Sir William Temple, Bart, (so cr. 31 Jan. 1665), 
the celebrated Statesman, and of Sir John Temple, the father of Henry, 1st Viscount 
Palmerston [I.] 

(d) " She had four sons and nine daughters, which lived to be married, and 
so exceedingly multiplied, that this lady saw 700 extracted from her body " [Fuller's 
Worthies]. If this is true, she far exceeds Mrs. Honywood {d. 11 May 1620, aged 
93), who had but 376 descendants at her death (see Top. and Oen., vol. i, pp. 397-411, 
and 568-576), but it should be noted that the Honywood case is well authenticated, 
whereas that of Temple rests merely on Dr. Fuller's statement. 

(*) He was, at first, a zealous partisan of the Pari., and was actually nominated one of 
the Judges for the King's trial, but he abstained from attendance thereat, and, after 
the King's executien, threw up his commission in the Army. He is often confused 
both (1) with his cousin, Peter Temple, one of the Eegicide Judges (who, having signed 
the death warrant, was condemned to be hanged, 16 Oct. 1660, and died a prisoner, 
20 Deo. 1663, aged 63), as also (2) with his nephew. Sir Peter Temple (Knt.), of 
Stanton Bury, Bucks, ancestor of the 5th, 6th, and 7tli Baronets. 

O Ann, her only surv. child, bap. 26 Jan. 1619/20, m. Thomas (Roper), Viscount

paternal grandmother, Christian, being 2d da. and coheir of Sir John Leveson, by 
Frances, da. of Sir Thomas Sondes, and Margaret, his wife, sister, but not heir or

cr. (a few days later), 14 Oct. 1749, Countess Temple, with reni. of that dignity to 
her issue male. This and her other peerage dignities continued in such issue, till, by 
the death s.p.m., 28 March 1889, of the Duke of Buckingham and Chandos, 5th in 
descent from her, and the last of her issue male, the Earldom of Temple'(1749) 
became extinct, but the Barony and Viscountcy of Cobham (1718) passed (under the 
spec. rem. in its creation) to Baron Lyttelton of Frankley, heir male of the body of 
Dame Christian Lyttelton, the other sister of Richard (Temple), 1st Viscount 
Cobham, who was in remainder to that title. The 2d Duke of Buckingham 
and Chandos had, however, obtained an Earldom of Temple of Stowe, co. Buckingham, 
cr. 4 Feb. 1822, with a spec, rem., in fault of his issue male, to his daughter and her 
issue male. This rem. took effect on the death, abovementioned, of the 3d Duke in 
1889, when William Stephen Qore-Langton, the son and heir of such daughter, 
became Earl Temple of Stowe (1822), though he neither inherited the estate of 
Stowe, nor in any way represented the family of Temple, of which (though a 
descendant), he was not even a junior coheir.

b. 1689, was of Sibbertoft aforesaid, and d. 16 May 1763, aged 74, leaving, by Mary 
his wife (who d. 1771), one son, Edward. 

" There appears every probability that the last named Edward [Temple] was the 
Baronet fm- the last ten years of his life [1786-96], unless there was any issue in the 
male line existing, from his uncle Richard. At any event, it is clear that till his 
decease [15 Sep. 1796], the dignity could not have devolved on any younger branch of 
the family." {ffer. and Gen. iii, 542.] This Edward Temple, presumably the dejure 
Baronet, d. num., 15 Sep. 1796.

6th Baronet), was living 22 Aug. 1683, being then father of a son named Purbeck; 
was of Leicester in 1690, soon after which date he appears to have died, leaving 
Ellen, his widow. His son, Pdrbeok Temple, was living 14 July 1693, being 
mentioned in the will of that date of his great uncle and godfather. Sir Purbeck 
Temple. The male issue of this Edmund Temple, of Leicester, is not, improbably, 
stUl in existence.

At his death the Baronetcy became dormant ; the heir male of the body of the grantee

as under. 



VIII. 1786. "Sm John Temple, Bart," assumed the dignity 

of a Baronet [1611] in Nov. 1786 (being at that date Consul 
Gen. of New York), as heir male of the body of the grantee. 

Various descents are assigned to him [I]. A memorandum in his own hand- 
writing gives his descent from Sir Peter Temple, the 2d Bart., as being " the 
sou of Robert, eldest son of Thomas, the son of Purbeck, who was 2d sou of 
the aforementioned Sir Peter Temple, Bart.,('') of Stowe." He is accordingly 
"stated in editions of the Baronetage, published before 1828, to have 
descended from the second Baronet. This [however] could not have been the 
fact, or his branch would have inherited the dignity [in 1749] before those of 
Stanton Bury [whose descent was from «. younger brother of the said 
2d Bart.] Other lines of descent have, subsequently, been suggested for him, 
but none has been actually ascertained " [tier, and Gen., iii, 396]. [11] A 
conjecture in Debrett's Baronetage, of 1835 (edited by W. Courthope), that 
the descent might be from Col. Edmund Temple (one of the sons of Sir John 
Temple, 2d son of the 1st Bart.), is, in Burke's Baronetage (1841), adopted as a 
certainty, though the precise descent is not given. (") [III] An American 
genealogist makes the said John to be ion of Robert, son of Thomas, son of Sir 
Purbeck Temple, a younger son of Sir John Temple, of Stanton Bury, the 
2d son of the 1st Bart. \_New England Hist, and Oen. Reg., vol. x]. It is, 
however, quite certain that the said Sir Purbeck died without issue. [IV] The 
descent (as in Burke's Peerage, 1899) is from the Rev. Thomas Temple, D.C.L. 
[1633], said (therein) to be Rector of Bourton on the Water, co. Gloucester,('') 
which Thomas, who was hap. 8 April 1604, at Stowe, was 3d son of the 1st Bart. 
This Thomas is stated to have had " a grandson " [the child's parentage, a 
most important part in the pedigree, is apparently unknown], named Thomas 



(*) Failing any nearer heir male (and none such, apparently, existed), Edward 
Temple was entitled to the Baronetcy, from 1786 to 1796. He was son of Purbeck 
Temple (rf. 1763, aged 71), son of John Temple {d. 1702, aged 52), son of Col. 
Edmund Temple (d. 1668, aged 46), sou of Sir John Temple (Knt.), of Stantonbury 
(d. 1632), who was 2d son of the 1st Baronet. See p. 83, note " d." 

C') The remarkable letter to "Sir John Temple, Bart., Consul Qen., New York," 
from the Marquess of Buckingham, dated " Stowe, 3 Dec. 1786 " [printed in the 
Ser. and Gen., vol. iv, p. 8], states that on the recent death of Sir Richard Temple, 
Bart., " the title devolves upon you as heir male to Sir Peter Temple, my great great 
grandfather and your great grandfather." His Lordship does not say that this Sir 
Peter was a Baronet, and possibly does not mean Sir Peter Temple, Bart, (i.e., the 
2d Bart.), the person claimed by the said John for a great great (not great) grand- 
father. This Peter, the 2d Bart., was great gi-andfather (not, as stated, to the writer 
himself, but) to the writer's father, through that father's mother, Hester, Countess 
Temple, wife of Richard Grenville. Another Sir Peter Temple [Knt., not Bart.] may 
possibly be meant, who was the lineal ancestor of the lately deceased Bart., and who 
was great grandfather (not, as stated, to the writer himself but) to the writer's 
father, the Rt. Hon. George Grenville, son of Richard Grenville (by Hester, Countess 
Temple above named) and grandson of another Richard Grenville, by Elinor, da. of 
the last named Sir Peter Temple. 

(i-') The male issue of this Edmund is dealt with on p. 83, note •' d," among 
which was Edward Temple, who was not improbably the rightful Baronet in 1786. 

(S) In the Visit, of Surrey for 1662, " Sir Ralph Freeman, of Lee, co. Surrey, Knt., 
1662," is said to have m. "Margaret, da. of CoUonell Tho. Temple, of Stow in co. 
Bucks, Dr. of the Civil Law." This is, unquestionably, the 3d son of the 1st Bart., 
called in the Visit, of 1634, "Thomas Temple, Dr. of the Civil Law," and is 
important as shewing that the said Thomas married and had issue.

Temple, who resided in Ireland, and who, by the sister of Nathaniel White, 
was father of Robert Temple, of Boston in America {b. 1694), who was father 
of John, who, in 1786, assumed the [1611] Baronetcy. As to these last two 
named descents, neither of them would, even if genuine, justify John Temple 
in assuming; the Baronetcy while issue male remafned, which it undoubtedly 
did till 1796, of Col. Edmund Temple, elder brother of Sir Purbeck Temple, 
and a descendant of the second son of the 1st Baronet, 

JOHN TEMPLE, who (as abovestated) assumed the Baronetcy in 1786 was, 
undoubtedly, 3d son, and (after 1781), heir male of Robert Temple, of Boston, 
in New England, " descended from Ireland,"(a) by Mehitabel {m. 11 Aug. 1721), 
da. of John Nelson, of Boston aforesaid, which John Nelson was " executor 
of the will of his uncle, Sir Thomas(l>) Temple, "(*) being s. of Robert Nelson, 
of Gray's Inn, Midx., by Mary, 3d da. of Sir John Temple (ancestor of the 
5th, 6th and 7th Barts.), 2d s. of Sir Thomas Temple the Ist Bart. His 
maternal descent from that Baronet is, therefore, undoubted, and the cousin- 
ship thus existing with the Temple Baronets may have given rise to the 
idea that it was one, in the male line, through Temple, instead of one in the 
female line, through Nelson. His paternal lineage, however, is, even if allowed 
as far as his grandfather, altogether conjectural beyond that period. His father, 
" Capt. Robert Temple," 6. 1694, emigrated from the north of Ireland to Boston, 
in New England, in Sep. 1717, and d. 14 April 1754, at Charlestown, aged 60, 
being, probably, son of a Thomas Temple, who d. in Ireland, by [ — ], da. of [ — ] 
White, (°) in Ireland, the parentage of the said Thomas Temple (said to have 
been a ship's carpenter), being unproved. (*) He hinnself, the second 8.(^)

private MSS. of Sir Isaac Heard, Garter ["J. P., 89," in the Coll. of Arms], as 
"Edmund Temple, Col, of a Regt.," which Edmund, by subsequent additions, is 
suggested to have been a " younger son of Peter, sou of Sir Thomas, the 1st Bart." 
"These suggestions are, however, very unhappy. If Edmund Temple, of Sulby, co. 
Northampton, who was, undoubtedly, a Colonel, is meant, he had no son named 
Thomas (see p. 83, note " d ") neither was his father named Peter. The 1st Bart, 
had, indeed, a son Peter, viz., his son and heir, the 2d Bart., which Sir Peter Temple, 
Bart,, left but one son. Sir Richard, the 3d Bart., whose male issue failed in 1749.

On the supposition that the assumption of the Baronetcy [1611], by John 
Temple, in 1786, was a legal one. For some period it was generally considered as 
not existing, e.g., "it is not to be found in Debrett's Baronetage of 1840, but 
gradually it has reappeared and made its way into Debrett, Burke, Dod and the 
Court Kaleudar." {Eer. and Gen., iv, 284].

(") This is the first in order of the seventeen creations of this date, which are here 
dealt with, as placed in the Creations, H8S — 16JiG, in app. 47th rep. of the D.K. Pub. 
Records. The order in Collins' Baronetage of 1720, and in most other printed lists, 
is as under (1) Portman, (2) Saunderson, (3) Sandys, (4) Gostwick, (5) Puckering, 
(6) Wray, (7) Ayloffe, (8) Wyvill, (9) Pershall, (10) Englefield, (11) Ridgway, (12) 
Essex, (13) Gorges, (14) Devereux, (15) Mohun, (16) Grimston, and (17) Holte. 

(^) The error of attributing the last seventeen creations in 1611 to the year 1612 is 
thus dealt with by J. Gough Nichols. " In all lists of the Baronets these creations will 
be found placed under the date, 25 Nov. 1612, instead of 1611. This error crept into 
the lists on some very early occasion, and has never hitherto been duly corrected. As 
regards Sir Marmuduke Wyvill it was detected 'from examination of the original patent 
the date whereof has hitherto been erroneously printed (by Dugdale, and in other 
catalogues of Baronets) Nov. 25, 1612. Ex. inf. Dom. Mar. Wyvill, Bar.' [The English 
Baronetage, 1741, vol. i, p. 232]. But this discovery, being confined to the Wyvill 
patent, the only result was au undue removal [in the Baronetage of 1741] of the article 
of Wyvill from its proper precedence to a place before that of Gostwick, and in the 
Baronetage [by Kimber] of 1771, Wyvill is further advanced before Temple, cr. 
Sep. 12, 1611 ; the latter being misassigned to 1612." [Her. and Oen., vol. iii,

("') In Sir Joseph Williamson's notes (see note " b " above), it is stated under Wray 
of Glentworth that " Ye 3 last brothers. Sir Jo., Sir Chr. and Sir Theoph. succeeded in 
yo Bar'°y one to another and dyed almost all mad iu y^ compasse of few months." 
The following entry of burial from Winteringham, co. Lincoln, contradicts the 
supposition that Theophilus (who was indeed the next br. to Christopher, having been 
bap. at Glentworth, 8 July 1624), did so succeed, although it in just possible he may 
have done so (for a day or so) unknown to the person who entered his burial. 
" Theophilus Wray, Generosus, Alius dom. Johis W. , Mil. and Bar., phreneticus, qui 
se submersit, Novembris 21, 1664," i.e., three days before the burial of his elder br., 
at Glentworth. It is, however, more probable that Theophilus is confused with 
Bethell Wray, who, also, was dead long before the notes were written, and who is not 
mentioned, though (if it were true of the three others), he would make a fourth 
brother who was insane, and who sue. to the title.

("*) In the JBer. and Gen., vol. iii, p. 450, is a letter, dated 14 Aug. 1611, from 
Robert Eowyer, Clerk of the Parliament, to Sir Robert Cotton, "to entreate you to 
have commended my cosen Essex his name to be in the list of the next Baronetts 
and one chiefe point of ours is that he mai be ranked as high as by your good meaues

C) In Fuller's Worthies he is spoken of {sub "Berks) as "a Baronet with the 
revenues of a Baron, but " [adds the writer] " riches endure not for ever if providence 
be not as well used in preserving as attaining them." This alludes doubtless to his

{") Visit, of Beds, 1634. The baptism, 5 Feb. 1625, at Colmworth, Beds, of 
" Edward Gostwick, son of Edward and Ann," presumably applies (not to him, but) 
to some child of his paternal aunt Ann, by (her cousin), Capt. Edward Gostwick. 

(d) His elder br., " Edward Gostwick, Esq., a. and h. to Sir Edwd., Bart.," was bur. 
13 Aug. 1659, at Willington. 

(°) The estate of WiUington, which had been 400 years in the family, was sold in 
1731 to the old Duchess of Marlborough, in consequence of the debts of the 4th Bart. 
The 5th Bart, in his will (dat. 1760), states that "I have, thro' the improvidence of 
grandfather, succeeded to no part of a very large family estate."

The title was assumed about 1770 by the Kev. John Pearsall, 
descended from a yeoman family of that name, seated at Hawu, in Halesowen, 
CO. Worcester, who asserted that his father and grandfather were entitled 
thereto, the latter being grandson (as alleged) of Humphrey Pershall,(') who 
(according to an inscription to him placed by his said great great grandson 
in Halesowen church) was " fil. dui Johis de Horsley Hall in agro' Staff. 
B'ti," and died 1650, set. 51, an age which agrees (possibly being for that 
very purpose adopted) with the birth (1 Nov. 1599), of HumphreyC) a son of 
the 1st Bart. See Her. and Gen., vol. vii, pp. 270-272.

Thomas, the 3d Bart., " the title of Baronet ceased in this family," and the dignity 
is omitted accordingly in Wotton's (existing) Baronetage of 1741, In Kimber's

Elizabeth, the Ist wife of the Rev. Christopher Wyvill, Rector of Black Notley, 
Essex. She d. s.p.s. 23 July 1783, and her husband appears to have sue. to them. He 
by a second wife, is ancestor of the present (1899) family of Wyvill, of Constable 
Burton. He d. 8 March 1822 aged 82, being, probably, the " Christopher Wyvill" 
who was LL.B., Cambridge (Queen's Coll.), 1764. He is said to have been only son of 
Edward Wyvill, Supervisor of Excise at Edinburgh [d. at York, 12 March 1791), 
second son of Darcy Wyvill, Collector of Excise at Derby (d. there 4 Jan. 1735), who 
was 2d son of the 4th Baronet. If so, it is of course obvious, that he would have 
been, in 1774, entitled to the Baronetcy, failing any nearer heirs male. Such, 
however, appear to have existed among the descendants of WilliamWyvill, eJdest son of 
Darcy Wyvill abovenamed, as set forth in the text.

(<•) He was so named after his maternal uncle, Erasmus Cope, who d. (v.p.) before

story of Erasmus Dryden's father having been a schoolmaster is highly improbable. 
[See Wotton's Baronetage (1741), vol. i, p. 350]. 

(^) It is shewn in Baker's NortJiamptonshire (vol. ii, p. 5) that the notion that the 
Dryden property in Ashby was a portion of the Cope estate is wrong. The bulk of 
Sir John Cope's estate, including the site of the monastery at Ashby, descended to 
Edward Cope, his grandson, but it was purchased by Sir Robert Dryden, in 1665.

manor of Glassenbury passed, under her will, to Thomas Roberts of the co. of Cork, 
her Grace being apparently under the impression that he was of her family, inasmuch 
as his great great grandfather, the Rev. Thomas Roberts, Chancellor of the diocese of 
Cork [d. 1664, aged about 74), was, in a pedigree (by Hawkins, Ulster, 22 June 1775), 
made identical with Thomas, 2d s, of the lat Bart. The last mentioned Thomas, 
however, d. s.p. in 1644. Had such descent been proved, it would have carried with 
it the Baronetcy of 1611 and the right to the Coat of Arms borne by those Baronets. 
That pedigree, however, was rejected by the Heralds' College, a new Coat of Arms 
was granted to him, and the Grantee was cr. a Bart. 20 Sep. 1809, he being 
described as " of Glassenbury, co. Kent and Brightfieldston, co. Cork."

(*) It is quite evident that his father, Charles, had not been so created, so that the 
dignity could not have been one, granted (as were several) during the rebellion by 
Charles I, of which grants no record exists. There is no evidence that he ever styled 
himself a Baronet, but he is so styled in his mar. lie, (Vic. Gen.) 15 Nov. 1669, as 
also in his admon., 28 Nov. 1681, though apparently erroneously. His son and 
successor does not appear to have assumed it. 

(*>) Kimber, in his Baronetage (A.D. 1771),' vol, i, p. 210, says that Philip Palmer, 
of Richmond, Surrey [a younger br. of Sir Charles Palmer, Bart., of Dorney Court], 
by his wife Jane, da. and h. of John Thompson, of Nettleden, Bucks, and of 
Ludgate Hill, London, mercer (m. before 1741), "has had three sons and two 
daughters, viz., Philip, John, Charles, Jane, and Anna, all now (A.D. 1771) living. 
This is the only remaining branch of the male line." In the " Addenda " to Burke's 
Mxtinet Baronets (edit. 1844), it is stated that all these sons and one of their sisters 
Jane, d. unm., while Anna m. James Landon, of Cheshunt, Herts, and had issue. 

(") They were (together with a da. named Angelica, who m., before 1835, William 
Watts Wilson, R.N.) his illegit. children, by his cousin, Caroline Bonin, spinster, 
da. of GouBse Bonin, of Antigua, by Dorothy, da. of Sir Charles Palmer, the 5th 
Bart. He left his estates to his three illegit. sons successively in tail male, with 
remainders over. He had also left in his will of 1835 (though he revoked it in the 
codicil of 1838) £4,000 to his "cousin, Caroline Bonin." The will. of the said 
" Caeoline Bonin, of Dorney Court, Bucks, gentlewoman, dat. 10 May 1849, was 
proved 17 Feb. 1852, by Angelica Finch, wife of William Finch, Esq., heretofore 
Angelica Wilson (relict of William Watts Wilson), executrix and residuary legatee.

to his brother in 1862 in Walford's County Families (1864), the Editor thereof 
adding that the title " was not assumed between 1838 and 1862." [Her. and Oen., 
vol. iv, pp. 283-284, where is a note by the Editor thereof that, " In the 3d edit.

bur. at Kidwelly, 12 April 1640. Admon. 10 Feb. 1640/1, to Elizabeth, his widow. 
She, who, presumably, was bap. at Canterbury Cathedral, 24 April 1614 (though, in 
that case, she would be somewhat under 10 years at her marriage), d. at the house of 
Mr. George Norbury, at Great St. Bartholomew's, London, 11, was carried thence 
18 and bm: 20 Sep. 1643, in the cathedral aforesaid. Will dat. 10 Sep. and pr. 
29 Nov. 1643, at the Prerog. Court, then at Oxford. 

III. 1640. Sir Francis Mansel, Bart. [1622], of Muddlescombe 

aforesaid, only s. and K. ; sue. to the Baronetcy in April 1640. He 
was living 10 Sep. 1643, being then a minor, and under the age at which he could 
make choice of his guardian. He d. s.p.m., most probably unm. and under age. 

[The succession to this Baronetcy is obscure during the period 
of nearly fifty years', viz., between 1643 and the death of Sir Richard Mansel, 
Bart, in 1691. There is a pedigree entered at the College of Arms, shewing 
(in full) the first four sons of the 1st Bart, and the issue of the 4th son, Bichard 
Mansel, of Ischoed {d. before 1636), whose grandson. Sir Richard Mansel above- 
named was the first of that issue who inherited the Baronetcy, and was progenitor 
of all the succeeding Baronets. The third of those sons, Francis Mansell, D.D., 
Principal of Jesus College, Oxford, d. unm. 1 May 1665, not having inherited the 
title, which must, therefore, have vested between 1643 and 1666, and probably 
later, in Francis, the 3d Bart., or his issue (he being the only son of Walter, the 
2d Bart., the eldest son), or in Anthony, the second son, therein stated to have 
been slain (ex. parte Regis) at Newbury, 27 Oct. 1644,('») or his issue. In 
this pedigree no issue, or mark of issue, is given either to the said Walter or 
Anthony, though there is no express statement that they d. without issue. Anthony 
is described as a " Knight " (only), not as a " Baronet." Le Neve, however, in his 
(MS.) Baronetage, makes (correctly) Walter, the 2d Bart., to be father (of a da., 
Elizabeth, (1)) and) of « Sir Francis Mansell, Bart., ob, s.p." He also makes the 
said Anthony to have issue, " Sir Edward Mansell, Francis, and Arthur, a Barrister," 
of whom, he states. Sir Edward was father of " Sir Edward Mansell, 1694."(o) 
Sir Edward Mansel, Bart., is, however (with more probability), made the son (not 
grandson) of this Anthony in Prothero's Welsli Pedigrees. The account in Wotton's 
Baronetage is strangely inaccurate, the 2d and 3d Barts. being totally ignored. The 
suggested succession as to the next holder is as under]. 

IV? 1650? Sir Edward ]\Iansbl, Bart. [1622], of Muddlescombe 

aforesaid, cousin and h. male, being (presumably) s. and h. 
(possibly, however, grandson and h., as being s. and h. of another Sir Edward 
Mansel, said to have been s. and h.) of Sir Anthony Mahsel (by Jane, da. of 
William Peioe, of Britton Ferry, co. Glamorgan), which Anthony (who was 
Knighted, 19 July 1629, and was Sherifi' of Glamorgan 1630-31), was 2d s. of the 1st 
Bart, (by his 1st wife), and was living 3 April 1641, but is said to have been slain in 
the Royal cause at Newbury, 27 Oct. 1644.(a) He sue. to the Baronetcy about 1650, 
and was Sheriff of co. Carmarthen, 1661. He m. Jane, widow of Sir Roger LoKT, Ist 
Bart. [1662], da. of Humphrey Windham, of Dunraven, co. Glamorgan. He d. s.p.m. 

V? 1680? Sir Eichard IVIansbl, Bart. [1622], of Ischoed, in St. 

Ishmaell's, co. Carmarthen, cousin and h. male, being next br. and h. 
of Anthony Mansel, of Ischoed [d. s.p. and was bur. 4 April 1679, at Margam), both 
being sons of Anthony Mansel, of Ischoed, by Mary, da. of Edward Cabne, of 
Cowbndge, which last named Anthony (6. 1613, and living May 1666) was eldest s. and 
h. of Richard Mansel, also of Ischoed, by Catherine, da. and h. of Rees Morgan, of 
Ischoed aforesaid, the said Richard (whose will, dat. 1634 was pr. 17 March 1635/6) 
°«™g *tji B. (by his 1st wife) of the 1st Bart. He was bap. 6 Jan. 1641, at St. 
Ishmaell s ; sue, t o the Baronetcy, on his cousin's death, at some date after 4 April 

(") It should be mentioned that Le Neve, in his Ba/rts., says " slain at Newby, co. 
York, _which statement Wotton (in his Baronetage) follows, adding, however, " temp. 
Oar. I, but neither of them say that it was in a battle.

his heirs. 

('') Hugh, an elder br., 6ap. 20 Sep. 1601, at St. Matthew's, was, about 1620, 
described as "of London, son and heir," i.e. heir apparent. 

(«) It should be mentioned that Le Neve (in his MS. " Baronets ") states this 
Hugh to be a son of the third wife, Elizabeth, and that also, about two years later 
there occurs among the burials at Croydon on 22 June 1655, " Sir Hugh Midlton's 
Sonne." This may refer to the Hugh, bap. 6 April 1653, but may equally well refer 
to some yr. child (possibly unbaptized) born shortly before such burial. See Col. 
Chester's Westm. Abbey Reg. (p. 21), as to a mention in 1694 of Sir Hugh Middleton, 
Bart., as son of Sir Hugh Middleton, of Ruthyn.

" ASSUMPTION of TITLE.— Whereas King James the First, by his Patent, 
dated the 18th day of December 1622, granted the dignity and title of a 
Baronet of England unto Hardolph Wasteneys, of Headon, in the county of 
Notts, esquire, and the heirs male of his body lawfully begotten ; and 
Whereas Sir Hardolph Wasteneys, fourth baronet, great grandson of the first 
mentioned Baronet, died without male issue, and all other collateral male 
issue being extinct, the title vested in the cousin and heir-at-law of the said 
fourth baronet, that is to say, in Simon Wasteneys, of Kdlington, in the 
county of York, who was also the direct male issue of the grantee of the title. 
And Whereas the said Simon left oiie son only, William, who left one son 
only, William (deceased), who had two sons and no more, William Parslove 
and Hardolph, whereof the elder, William Parslove is dead, leaving me, 
William Wasteneys, his only sou and heir-at-law surviving ; and Whereas I 
am advised and believe that it is expedient that I should reassume the title 
and dignity of baronet to which I am entitled as aforesaid. Now I hereby

His burial as an " Esq.," and his will as such (dat. 25 April and pr. 8 Dec. 1699, at

CREATIONS [e.J BY JAMES I. 



consequence of the omission to seal the original letters patent of that date, creating 
the said Sir Roger, a Baronet. "(*) The abovenamed Thomas Dallison, of Laughton, 
CO. Lincoln, s. and h. of the abovenamed Sir Roger Dallison, of the same, Lieut. 
Gen. of the Ordnance, by his 2d wife, Elizabeth, da, of ( — ) TiKWHiTT, was bap. 
4 June 1591, at Laughton aforesaid ; sue. his father in or before Jan. 1622/3,('') and 
was cr. a Bart., 27 Oct. 1624, as above, with a direction that the said patent should 
be pre-dated 29 June 1611, being the date of the dignity intended for his said 
father, but of which the patent was never sealed. He d. s.p., presumably unm,,(c) 
being slain at Naseby, fighting on the King's side, 14 June 1645, when the Baronetcy 
became extinct. 



A Baronetcy of Dallison, presumably one purporting to be of 

this creation (27 Oct. 1624) was assumed as under. 

1677. "Sir Robert Dallyson, Bart., of Greetwell, co. Lincoln," 
had lie. (Vie. Gen.), 17 April 1677, to marry at Swinderly, co. Lincoln, 
Mrs. Alice Andrewes, of the city of Lincoln, widow. 

1713. "Sir Thomas Dallison, Bart., of St. Paul's, Covent 

Garden, Midx., Bachr.," admon., 25 June 1713, of his goods to 
the principal creditor, " Dame Alice Dallison, mother of deed., having 
renounced." 

1714. "Sir .Iambs Dalyson, Bart, of Chelsea, Midx., above 
25, Bachr.," had lie. (Vic. Gen.), 13 April 1714, to marry at St. 

Bride's or St. Mary le Bow, London, Anne Symonds, of Chelsea, aged 18; 
spinster, with consent of her mother, Anne Symonds, of the same, wife of 
John Symonds, now at Barbadoes. 



(*) The exact position attributed by Diigdale, and followed in all succeeding 
lists, to this Baronetcy, among the 53 creations of the date of 29 June 1611, is between 
Tirwhitt and Carre, numbers 31 and 32 of that batch of creations. Probably the 
warrant or sign manual, which directed the said dignity to be conferred on Sir 
Roger, allots it such a place. "Sir Roger Dallison" figures in these lists as a 
Baronet, but inasmuch as he was dead before Jan. 1622/3, nearly two years before 
the patent was granted to his son, Thomas, the pre-dating of that patent (though 
possibly granting the precedence of such pre-date) cannot be construed as raising a 
dead man to a Baronetcy. A clause (equally unjust to the previous patentees) 
in the patent, 22 June 1631, of the Vavasor Baronetcy, grants it the precedency of 
this same date of 29 June 1611, between numbers 9 and 10 of that batch of creations. 
See p. 40, note " a," sub " Qresley." The practical effect of each patent seems the 
same. 

C") The Baronet's father (who was Sheriff of Lincolnshire, 1601-02) was dead 
before 21 Jan. 1622/3, when his admon. as that of " Sir Roger Dallison, Knight, 
of St. Bride's, Fleet street, London " [he being possibly a debtor in the Fleet prison] 
was granted to a creditor.

CREATIONS BY JAMES I, 
30 July 1619 to 27 March 1625.('') 



[Instituted by letters under the Privy Signet, dat. at Apthorpe, 30 July [1619] 
17 Jac. I, and by letters patent at Dublin, 30 Sep. following. In the warrant, 
24 Jan. 1620/1, for the creation of the Baronetcy of Coote, the King thus refers to 
his reasons for extending that dignity to Ireland : — " Having cast our eyes upon 
that kingdom, we find, to our comfort and the glory of that age, that Ireland, which 
was heretofore a place of rebellions and troubles, is now by the happy peace which it 
hath enjoyed under our government, become as our other kingdoms replenished with 
many worthy and well deserying men ; and to the end that they may not want 
encouragement from us, we did purposely institute the dignity of Baronets in that 
realm to be conferred upon them, that their virtues and our grace might be made 
known both to the present, and succeeding times."] 

SARSFIELD: 

cr. 30 Sep. 1619, 

afterwards, 1625-27, Viscount Kingsalb [I.], 

and subseqiiently, 1627-91, Viscounts Sarsfield of Kilmallock [I.]; 

forfeited July 1691. 

I. 1619. "Sir Dominick Sarsfield, Knt, Chief Justice of the 

Common Pleas [I.], of Carrickleamlery, co. Cork,"('') 3d and yst. s. 
of Edmund Sarsfield, of Cork, Alderman ; was Knighted, at Dublin Castle, 10 Feb. 
1604/5 ; Justice of the King's Bench [I.], 1609 ; Chief Justice of the Common Pleas 
[I.], 1616, till deprived by the Star Chamber, 1634, and was, by patent dat. at 
Dublin, 30 Sep. 1619 (Privy Seal dat. at Apthorpe, 30 July previous), cr. a Bart. [I.], 

C) For a vast quantity of original and valuable information (mostly obtained from 
hitherto unexplored sources) respecting these Baronetcies, the editor is indebted to 
George Dames Burtchaell, M.A., LL.B., Barrister at Law, now (1900) of the OfiBce 
of Arms, Dublin, author of a very valuable and critical work, entitled The 
Genealogical Memoirs oftheM.P.'sfor Killcenny (1888). Sir Arthur Vicars, Ulster, has 
kindly and very fully replied to several queries concerning them, while C. M. Tenison 
(of Hobart, Tasmania) has contributed a considerable amount of facts from his copious 
genealogical collection. 

C*) The description of each grantee and (down to 1772) the date of each creation is 
taken from the list in a bulky work (two huge vols., folio) entitled iifter Munerum 
Puhlicorum JJibernicB, 115S — 18S7, published by the Irish Record Commissioners 
(1832). As far as 27 July 1772, that date being (as stated) the end of Lodge's 
Baronetage, this list seems to furnish full particulars, but not so between that date 
and 1800, during which period the date of the year only is given. After the Union, 
however, the exact date and desciintion is given of some forty-five Baronetcies, from 
that of " Crofton," 9 July 1801, to that of " James," 11 Jan. 1822, conferred on natives 
of Ireland, all of which, of course, were Baronetcies (not of Ireland, but) of the United 
Kingdom. This circumstance throws some doubt on to the acumen of the editor, or 
editors, of these vols., in dealing with other Irish matters. It appears to have been 
(erroneously) assumed that becaiise by a special clause in the Irish Union Act the 
Crown was enabled to continue the creations of Peers of a non-existing kingdom, the 
same anomalous power was therein granted to it (and actually exceroised) as to 
Baronetcies.

(») Ex. inform. G. D. Burtohaell. See p. 223, note " a." With respect to the Coote 
Baronetcy he remarks that there is a " full pedigree in Ulster Office. Lodge, in 
the earlier portion, is all wrong." 

(*) This is given in full in Playfair's Baronetage, and is somewhat curious as setting 
forth the reason the King gives for these Irish creations. See p. 223. 

(o) Most of the existing Baronetages state that Coote is the premier Baronetcy of 
Ireland. This honour, even if one grants that the premier creation, viz., Sarsfield 
(which undoubtedly is under forfeiture), is extinct, would appear to belong (not to 
\iie fifth, but) to the second creation, viz., Annesley, and to be now vested in Viscount 
Valentia [I.]. 

(■*) The 2d son, Chidley Coote, was ancestor of the 9th and all the succeeding 
Baronets, as also of the Barons Gastle-Coote [I.], a Barony which became extinct in 
1827. The third son, Richard Coote, was cr. in 1660 Baron Coote of Coloony [I.], a 
dignity which became extinct, together with the Earldom of Bellamont [I.], in 
1800. 

(«) " Coote was the ablest friend of the Commonwealth in Ireland, and enjoyed 
the implicit trust of the Parliamentary party, even after the death of Cromwell " 
{Nat. Biogr.]. 

In recognition of his father's famous passage through Mountrath woods.

V. 1735. Sir George Barnewall, Bart. [I. 1623], cousin and h. 

male, being 2d but 1st surv. s. of Barnaby Barnewall, of Ballyard, 
by Jane, da. of Kedagh Geoghegan, of Carne and Jamestown, which Barnaby was s. 
of James Barnewall, of Roskeen, Queen's County {d. 1692), who was s. of John 
Barnewall, of Athronan, the 2d s. of the 2d Bart. Having established in the 
College of Arms, Dublin, 28 Aug. 1744, his pedigree and (consequently) his right to 
the Baronetcy to which he had sue., 22 Oct. 1735, he returned to Germany, where he 
had previously resided. He d. s.p. after June 1770.("*) 

(") The names of his sons, as given in Lodge's Irish Peerage, 1789 {sub "Kings- 
land "), are Richard, John, George and Michael. These four and no others, in his will, 
dat. 24 March 1615, are the devisees of his land in tail male, with rem. to his two 
brothers, to his uncle, and to a variety of cousins. This devise is unaltered by the 
subsequent codicils, and seems to preclude the birth of a younger son, James, " born 
subsequent to March 1615 " [Burke's Peerage etc., 1899], who would thus be 
disinherited. There is, however, an entry in Ulster's Office (being, apparently, 
the draft of a proposed funeral certificate), wherein the fourth and last named son of 
the said Sir Patrick is called " James " instead of " Michael." This entry, however, 
is both undated and uncertified. It is printed (with notes thereon) in Foster's 
Collect. Oen. 

(*>) " It is to be observed that the original will does not exist. In the copy inserted 
in the inq. p.m. engrossed on a separate skin, in a different handwriting, and sewn 
in, the engrosser writes the date of the last codicil xxxth June, while the jurors 
found the testator died on the 21st. This last codicil is nuncupative, and certainly 
mentions the wife, Elizabeth. Could this be a mistake ? but, on the other hand, why 
this codicil, if not to make provision for another wife ? The second wife is admitted 
in the pedigrees in Ulster's office." [G. D. Burtchaell, see p. 223, note " a."] 

(") His sisters inherited the lands at Crickstown, said to have been for twelve 
generations in the Barnewall family. Of these, EUinor, Countess of Mount 
Alexander [I.], d. s.p., and the three others d. unm. before 1758. 

(<l) "Sir George, the 5th Bart., is supposed to have died after June 1770, as the 
will of John Barnewall, only child of George Barnewalls the eldest br. of Sir Thomas, 
the 6th Bart., is dated 15 Feb. and pr. 22 June 1770, as appears in the pedigree 
registered [I.] in 1884 of the then Baronet.' [G. D. Burtchaell, see p. 223,

250 CREATIONS [l.] BY JAMES I, 

VI. 1771 1 SiE Thomas Barnbwall, Bart. [I. 1623], cousin and h. 
male, being only surv. 8. of James Baenewall (d. 20 Nov. 1709), by 
Margaret, da. of Kedagh Geoqhegan abovenamed, which Jamea was br. to Barnaby 
Barnewall abovenamed, the father of the 5th Bart. He m. ( — ), da. of (— ) 
MuLHALL, of Kilcauligar Castle, Queen's County. He sue. to tke Baronetcy after 
June 1770, but not to any of the family estates. He d. B.p.m. 1790. 



After 1790 this Baronetcy was, for more than thirty years, generally 
considered extinct, and, as such, is consequently omitted in Playfair's (extensive) 
Baronetage of Ireland (1809-12). Its devolution, however, as below, is in Burke's 
Peerage and Baronetage of 1871 (possibly in those for 1868-70), though, in that work, 
from 1828 to 1867, a different pedigree had been given, viz., one deducing the then 
Baronet from Michael Barnewall, 4th s. of the 1st Bart., which Michael (not James) 
is therein made the father of Bartholomew Barnewall, of Ballyhost, hereafter named. 
According to that work (1841 and 1871) each of these two contradictory descents had 
" full recognition by the College of Arms in Ire]and."(») It appears, however, " that 
this is not so," and that " the descent from Michael is not registered in any of the 
pedigrees registered in Ulster's Office. His name only occurs in one of them, but 
nothing further," and "that pedigree only comes down to Sir George, the 5th 
Bart " [G. D. Burtchaell, see p. 223, note " a "]. In Burke's edition of 1871, the 
account runs thus : — 

"From the period of the decease of Sir George [fhe 5th Bart.], the Baronetcy 
remained dormant until revived in Nov. 1821, In favour of the late Sm Robert 
Baknewall, by a full recognition of his right by the College of Arms in Ireland. 
The immediate line of this gentleman we shall now trace. (1) James Barnewall, 
Esq.jC") 4th s. of the 1st Bart., left an only s. and h. (2) Bartholomew Barnewall, 
Esq.,('') of Ballyhost, co. Westmeath, who m. Jane, da. of Kidagh Geoghbgan, Esq., 
of Castletown Geoghegan, and, dying in 1732, was sue. by (3) his eldest son, Robert 
Barnewall, Esq., of Mograth, co. Meath, m. Bridget, widow of Richard Barnewall, 
Esq., of Mograth, da. of Henry Piers, Esq., of Lisloughan, and had (4) Bartholomew, 
his successor." This Bartholomew Barnewall is the de jure Baronet of 1790, as set 
forth in the succesion given below. 

VII. 1790. Bartholomew Barnewall, of Greenanstown, co. West- 
meath, who, according to the above pedigree, was cousin and h. male, 
and, as h. male of the body of the grantee, the de jure 7th Bart. [I.], being s. and h. 
of Robert Barnewall, of Moyrath, co. Meath, by Bridget, da. of Henry PlEES, of 
Lisloughan, which Robert (6. 1702 ; m. 1723) was s. and h. of Bartholomew 
Barnewall,(») of Ballyhost, co. Westmeath (d 1736), said to be s. of James 
Barnewall, Lieut. Col. of Horse, said to be the 4th s. of the 1st Bart. He, who 
was b. about 1724, never assumed the Baronetcy, to which his right, as above, would 
have accrued in 1790.("') He m. (settlm. 16 April 1748), Mary, sister and h. of Isaac 
Brand Colt, of Brightlingsey Hall, Essex, 2d da. of John Colt. She d. 24 March 
1802. He d. also in 1802. 

(») These words occur in the edition of Burke's work in 1841, where the descent of 
the then Baronet is deduced from Michael Barnewall, as well as in that of 1871, 
where the deduction is from James Barnewall. 

(*>) As to this James being such 4th son, see p. 249, note "a," but Q. D. Burtchaell 
(see p. 223, note " a ") states that " there are numerous proofs given for the descent 
of the present Bart, from James in the pedigree registered [I.] in 1884." 

(0) " Bartholomew Barnewall, who married Mrs. of Castletown's daughter, who 
lives, or did live, in co. Westmeath," is mentioned in the will of Sir George, the 
4th Bart., dat. 18 April 1735, as having lent testator £10. No relationship to 
the testator is, however, mentioned, and certainly the affiliation of the said 
Bartholomew (as son of James and grandson of the 1st Bart.) cannot be conjectured 
therefrom. 

(d) Assuming the male descent from the grantee to be sufficiently proved. See 
note " b," next above.

(a) Thus the surname of the Earl of Wiuchilsea, who, 2 Aug. 1826, succeeded his 
kinsman in that peerage and in the Baronetcy of Finch {cr. 29 June 1611) was Finch- 
Hatton, but the name of " Hatton " is not given in this index in connection 
with this Baronetcy. So also as to the names of " Hampden " and " Bruce " iu 
connection with the Baronetcies of Hobart {cr. 22 May 1611) and of Brudenell {cr. 
29 June 1611), though the surname of the Earls of Buckinghamshire, who enjoy the 
former, has been, since 1878, " Hobart-Hampden," while that of the Marquessea of 
Ailesbury, who, in 1868, inherited the latter, is " Bi-udeuell-Bruce."
