da. of John Castbll, of Raveningham aforesaid. He d. 10 and was bur. 17 July

(") Such surrender, however would have been invalid, according to the decision, 
1678, in the case of the Viscountcy of Purbeck. See note sub " Stonehouse " 
Baronetcy, cr. 7 May 1628. 

(*>) This transaction is supposed to have been effected in consequence of a bribe from 
Goring to the needy baronet, who (save for such bribe), gained nothing whatever by it. 
There appears to have been no relationship between the parties, and the connection 
between them is so ludicrously remote as hardly to be worth any consideration. 
A certain Sir Henry Bowyer married (as her first husband) Dorothy, da. of George 
Goring, of Danny, co. Sussex, and died childless in 1606, his widow promptly 
remarrying. That Henry was great grandson of William Bowyer, from whom, by 
another of his sons, the grantee of 1678 was a great great great grandson. The said 
Dorothy was granddaughter of Si| William Goring, of Burton (d. 1553), from whom 
Henry Goring, the successor to the Baronetcy created in 1678, was (by another son), 
4th in descent . Thus James Bowyer, the grantee of 1678 was 2d cousin twice removed 
to a man who died above seventy years ago, without issue, leaving a widow, who was 
first cousin (also) twice removed to Henry Goring, the remainder man and subsequent 
inheritor of the Baronetcy thus created.

in 1678 of the Baronetcy of Bowyer, cr. 23 July 1527.

how that his father was by his parents disinherited, " though he never gave them any 
provocation, and it was for no other reason but by their having taken an antipathy 
against him."

1697 M.P. tor Northumberland (in five Paris.) 1677-87, having sue. to 
the Baronetcy about 1682. He, in 1685, brought up the bill of 
attainder against the Duke of Monmouth. He was so prodigal of his wealth 
that he was forced to alienate nearly all his estates. His fidelity to the here- 
ditary royal race of Stuart was unbounded. He was concerned in a scheme for 
the restoration of James II, in which it is said that Lord Marlborough, the Duke of 
Shrewsbury, Admiral Russell and many others who held posts under the established 
government were implicated. He was apprehended at New Romney, committed to 
the Tower, and indicted for high treason 28 May 1696. The great national influence 
of the other conspirators made it good policy to ignore their backslidinga, and, though 
narrowly watched, they were continued in the Government employment, but Sir 
John Fenwick, being a ruined man and desperate Jacobite, it was thought fit to make 
an example of him. It was, however, against the law of the land to convict a person 
of high treason on the oath of only one witness,'") but an ex post facto law was made 
to apply to this case (the majority in the Commons being 33, out of 345, and that in 
the Lords only 7, besides that 40 Peers protested against it), which act promptly, 
and even it is said gladly (*) received the Royal assent. He was thus legally murdered 
by an act " which cannot be too much condemned as a breach of the most sacred and 
unalterable rules of justice." He d. B.p.s., being beheaded on Tower Hill 27 Jan. 
1696/7, aged 52. He was hur. the day following in the church of St. Martin's in the 
fields. The Baronetcy at his death became extinct, but it was not forfeited, as all 
execution of the act of attainder (excepting only that of the beheading) had been 
remitted by writ of the 18th inst. He m. 14 July 1663, at St. James', Clerkenwell 
(Lie. London, he about 19, she about 16), Mary, 1st da. of Charles (Howard), 1st 
Earl of Carlisle, by Anne, da. of Edward (Howard), 1st Bakon Howard of 
EsoRiOK. She, who had been unremitting in her exertions to save her husband's 
life, d. 27 Oct. 1708, aged 60, and was bur. at York Minster. M.I.

at the battle of Marston Moor, 2 July 1644.

Meldon, co. Northd., and a younger br of Sir John, the 1st Bart [Genealogist, O.S., 
pt, ii, p. 17]. His admon 2 May 1653 was granted to Elizabeth, the widow. 

(■=) This witness was a certain Capt. George Porter, who, it is said, had taken a 
bribe of £300. 

(i*) It appears he was personally obnoxious to hoth their Majesties — (1) to 
William, for some remarks made on his conduct while serving in the army in 
Holland ; and (2) to Mary (whom, doubtless, he considered a modern " TuUia ") 
for ostentatiously refusing to take off his hat to her when he met her as Queen in the 
park.

1677/8 to Jan. 1678/9 ; for Devon, 1685-87; and for Liskeard, again (three Paris.), 

(*) In many accounts, this Baronetcy is stated to have been given to Sir William, 
the son and successor of this Sir William. Such, however, was not the case, as 
this last named William, in his will, dated 1634, calls himself " Knt. and Bart.," and 
describes his son William [not as " Bart.," but] as " Knt." 

(*") Admon. 30 June 1670, " Dame Elizabeth Wrey, late of St. Martin's in the 
Fields, Midx., but formerly of Treleigh, in St. Ives, co. Cornwall," granted to Mary 
Courtney, niece or grandchild ["nepti"] and next of kin. This admon. probably 
refers to Elizabeth, da. of Sir William Courtenay, wife of the 1st Bart. She, 
however, was a mother as early as, or earlier than 1600, and certainly left issue. It is 
.possible (conaidering the date), that the admon. may refer to Elizabeth (Chichester), 
born 1607, wife of the 2d Bart. 

{") He is not the " Sir William Wray," who was one of seven persons, all of the 
Bishopric of Durham, who were Knighted there, 24 April 1617. That William was

(") In this last entry she is called " Ellen Caroline Wrey, formerly Riddle," the place 
and date of the previous marriage being recited, and it being added " doubts having 
arisen as to the validity of such marriage." In the North Devon Journal, 25 Sep. 
1879 (quoting the Western Times for the 22 and 23 inst.), is a long account of the 
marriages of this Baronet. His first wife is stated to have been an Irish woman 
" of rare beauty, who bore the name of the widow Johnson, nee Ellen O'Brien," and 
who was nurse to the eldest child of Mrs. Hartopp, his sister. The marriage of 1818 
is said to have been in the belief of the death of the said Ellen's first husband, who 
had not been heard of for seven years. His existence, however, is said to have been 
afterwards discovered, as also that his name was not Johnson but Riddle ; that he 
had " been a groom to Lord Adare," and that his death took place in 1826. The 
second wife ia said to have been daughter of the lodge keeper at Tawstock and lady's 
maid to the first. There are, apparently, some inaccuracies in this newspaper account, 
as e.g., that the first marriage in 1818 was " at St. Anne's, Holborn," the second 
one " at Brighton," etc. 

(b) Ellen Caroline, his 1st daughter, and, eventually, sole heir, 6. 1819, m. 
9 Aug. 1888, Edward Joseph Weld, of Lulworth Castle, co. Dorset, and d. 13 Oct. 
1866, leaving issue, among whom (if the said Ellen can be proved to have been 
legitimate) the coheirship of the Barony of Fitzwarine is vested.

{^) The feeling roused by this arbitrary act is well set forth in a spirited poem by 
the Rev. Robert Stephen Hawker (41 years Vicar of Morwenstow, Cornwall, d. 15 Aug. 
1875, aged 70), entitled " The Song of the Wealem Men," who (the head of one of 
their leading families, being a prisoner) may naturally be supposed to have been 
especially affected. It commences as below — 

" A good sword and a trusty hand, 

A merry heart and true, 
King James's men shall understand 

What Cornish lads can do. 
And have they fixed the Where and When, 

And shall Trelawny die ? 
Then twenty thousand Cornish men 

Will know the reason why ! 
What ! will they scorn The, Pol and Pen ? 

And shall Trelawny die ? 
Then twenty thousand underground 
Will know the reason why 1 " 

The whole of this long passed for an original song dating from 1688, and its author 
(when he declared himself) states from local tradition that the refrain [" And shall 
Trelawny die," etc.] was so, but " Hawker's testimony is not quite conclusive. There 
is some ground for believing that the cry was first raised in 1628, owing to the fears 
of Cornishmen for the life of Sir John Trelawny, 1st Bart., at the hands of the Bouse 
of Commons " [Diot. Nat. Biogr,]. 

(0) Their ten years' courtship is recounted in the " Love- Letters of Myrtilla 
and Philander, 1706-36." The match was opposed by the bride's father.

(b) " Neither as a Peer or a Baronet is the existence of this person or his posterity 
admitted in Wood's edit. (1813) of Douglas's Peerage of Scotland, nor is he inserted 
[in Wotton's Baronetage, 1741] in Kimber and Johnson's Baronetage, 1771, either in 
a distinct article or in the account of this family given in relation to the Norton 
Conyers branch, which is also descended from the first Baronet of Esk. In the 
Baronetage of 1819 an article for " Graham of Esk " is inserted, and thenceforward 
the title [i e., that Baronetcy] is recognised by all subsequent works of that class, but 
we have failed to discover anywhere that the attainder of 1690 has actually been 
reversed." [Her. and Gen., vol. iv., p. 278.] 

(«) In the Gent. Mag. for 1777 his death is thus recorded: " Sep. 21, at Mr. Lewis', 
in Carmarthen, the Rt. Hon. and Rev. William Graham, Lord Viscount Preston," 
which notice is followed by an erroneous statement that he was son and successor of 
the Viscount who died in 1739. That [erroneous] affiliation is, however, ascribed to 
him in the old (1764) edit, of Douglas's Peerage of Scotland, though not in the sub- 
sequent one of 1816,

after the date of May 1641 when the enrolments are so very irregular, to follow 
this official (or semi-official) Catalogue as given by Dugdale (referring to it as "Dugdale's 
Catalogue "), which includes the above-named nineteen Baronetcies, indispersed among 
those mentioned in the list of Creations, 1483 — 1646. There are, however, many 
other Baronetcies conferred during the Civil Wars which are not comprehended in 
this Catalogue {e.g., Bathurst, Cokayne, Courtenay, Haggerston, Lloyd, etc.) which 
will be here dealt with at the end of those given by Dugdale.

obtained patents for that honour, which were not enrolled, should, by descerning an 
omission of their names therein, take care to supply that defect, so that upon a second 
impression thereof they might be inserted. Now, whereas, after 12 years and more, 
no enrollments are yet to be found for sundry persons which have assumed this 
title, which causeth some to doubt whether they can make any justifiable claims thereto. 
Whereas, therefore, no person [sic] whatsoever ought to take upon them [sic] this title

According to Burke's Extinct Baronetage, on the death, in 1748, of the 
6th Bart, the Baronetcy reverted to his kinsman. 

Sir Alexander Carew, (who was "in Holy Orders") in right of his descent 
from " Thomas Carew, of Harrowbear, 2d s. of Sir Alexander, the 2d Bart.," 
and that at his death without issue it became extinct. 

This, apparently, ia a mistake. Thomas Carew, abovenamed, had, by Wilmot 
his wife, two sons, of whom the yr. son, John Carew, living 1691, d. s.p., 
while the elder son, Alexander, living 1678 and 1691, who was in Holy Orders 
and Vicar of St. Wenn, d. (also) s.p. in 1709.('') This Alexander appears to 
be the person piesumed (erroneously) to be living in 1748, and consequently 
then entitled to the Baronetcy. Sir Thomas Carew, of Barley, co. Devon (a 
yr. B. of the lat Bart, by his 2d wife), had by Elizabeth, da. of John Cooper, 
several children, on some of whose deseendants, if such there were, the 
Baronetcy is more likely to have devolved. 



(*) Jane, her eldest da., m. Jonathan Rashleigh, whose da. and h., Sarah, m. the Rev 
Carolus Pole and was grandmother of Reginald Pole who, after the death, s.p.m., of 
John Carew, of Camerton, inherited the estate of Antony and took the name of Carew 
(under the will of the 6th Bart,), being ancestor of the family of Pole-Carew.

CURZON : 

cr. 11 Aug. 1641(''); 

having been previously, 18 June 1636, cr. a Baronet [S.]; 

afterwards, since 1761, Harons Scarsdalb. 

I. 1641. "John CuRzon, of Kedleston, co. Derby, Baronet of 

Scotland," 1st s. and h. of John Curzon, of Kedleston aforesaid, by 

Millicent, da. of Sir Ralph Sacheverell, of Stanton, co. Derby, was b. about 1 599 ; matric. 

General John Owen (d. Jan. 1776), a yr. s. of the 3d Bart. Inasmuch, however, as 
the said Corbetta had a brother, Brigadier General William Owen (d. 1795), who was 
father not only of the 8th Bart, (who d. unm.), but of Frances, who m. Rev. Charles 
Tripp and had issue, the family of Tripp (and not that of Lord) represented these 
Baronets. 

(*) A petition was presented, soon after 1861, to the Crown, by the Rev. Henry 
Tripp, M.A., Fellow of Worcester College, Oxford, eldest s. of Charles Tripp, D.D., 
Rector of Silverton, Devon, by Frances, sister and coheir (being the only sister who 
left issue) of Sir William Owen-Barlow, 8th and last Bart. [1641], praying that the 
dignity of a Baronet should be conferred on him " in consideration of his being the 
heir-in-blood of the ancient Baronets [of Owen] of Orielton," adding that this had 
been recently done in the cases of Pakington [cr. 1846], Barker-Mill [cr. 1836], and 
Mackenzie, afterwards Douglas of Glenbervie [cr. 1831]. To this the petitioner 
thought fit to add several very irrelevant statements, e.g., that his grandfather, 
the Rev. John Tripp, Rector of Spofforth, Yorkshire, was a friend of George (O'Brien), 
Earl of Egremont, and was the son of Dr. Tripp, Barrister at Law, Deputy Recorder 
of Taunton, the family being traditionally descended "from a scion of the 
illustrious house of Norfolk, whose arms they bear in addition to the scaling ladder 
which was substituted for their bend by Henry V, when their name was changed 
from Howard to Tripp." The ridiculous statements thus set forth by the petitioner 
failed, naturally enough, to gain him his object. His eldest son, however, Owen 
Howard Tripp, took by royal licence in 1898 the name of Owen, though he inherited 
none of the estates of that family, which had been devised to the family' of Lord. 
In the Times of (22 or 23 ?) August 1900 he advertised his intention to assume this 
Baronetcy of 1641 [one, it is to be observed, limited to heirs iitale of the body of the 
grantee] as being grandson of Frances, sister of the late Baronet, and consequently 
his heir, not however stating that, though (through this female descent) he was feeir 
general, he was not the h^ir male, to whom only the succession was limited,

Memorandum. — All Bahonetcies couferked by Charles I, after 4 Jan. 1641/2,('') 
WERE (until the Restoration) DISALLOWED under the act of [the Rump] Pari, 
dated 4 Feb. 1651/2, whereby "all and every honours, titles, dignities and 
precedences whatsoever granted, confirmed and given by the late King since 
4 Jan. 1641 " were made " null and void " ; no one, after 25 March 1662, 
being allowed to apsiime them ; each Peer so doing to forfeit £100, each Baronet 
or Knight to forfeit £40 ; all such patents to be brought into the Court of 
Chancery so that they might be cancelled. 

All Royalist Baronetcies conferred after 22 May 1642(*) had previously been 
so disallowed by Pari., 11 Nov. 1643, under the act which made void " all 
grants since 22 May 1642 of any honours, dignities, baronies, hereditaments 
or other thing whatsoever to any person or persons which have voluntarily 
contributed, or shall voluntarily contribute any aid or assistance to the maintenance 
of the unnatural war raised against the Parliament." The new Great Seal 
" already made and provided [i.e.,oii 28 Sep. 1643] was then placed in the hands of six 
Commissioners for use. Thus, for nearly three years there were two (rival) Great 
Seals of England, until, on 11 Aug. 1646, the King's Great Seal (which was taken at 
Oxford) was broken to pieces with great solemnity in the presence of both houses of 
Pari. After that date this seal of 1643 would, presumably, be, even after the 
Restoration of the Monarchy, considered as the legitimate Great Seal of the realm, 
but it seems a moot point how far the Parliamentary Great Seal, when for nearly 
three years (1643 — 1646) it ran concurrently with, and often in opposition to, that 
of the King, would be thus acknowledged. On 9 Jan. 1648/9, a new Great Seal 
was ordered. [Ex inform. W. D. Pink]. 



C) There is some reason for the selection of the date of 22 May 1642, but there 
is none for that of the earlier date of 4 Jan. 1641/2. "By no manner of reasoning 
could it be pretended that Grants and Patents which had passed the (one) Great Seal 
between Jan. and May 1642, when that Seal was in actual attendance upon Pari, 
could be illegal." The date of 4 Jan. 1641/2, however, appears to have been chosen 
as being that on which the King attempted the arrest of the five members of the 
House of Commons, and so to have been looked on as the date of the commencement of 
the Civil War, after which everything done by the King alone was considered illegal. 
The fixing of this early date (4 Jan. 1641/2) was an afterthought, enacted nine years 
after the later date, 22 May 1642, had been fixed upon on the much more 
intelligible ground, as being that on which the Great Seal was held to have deserted 
the Pari, on its having been delivered by Lord Keeper Lyttelton to the King at York.

166 CREATIONS [e.] BY CHARLES 



This Baronetcy was assumed in April 1810 by the Rev. William 
Eeade, who at first alleged himself to be descended from a younger son of the 
1st Bart., whom, at that date, he stated to be Major John Reade.(») The name 
of this younger son he subsequently, however, altered to Matthew, and a 
statement was added that this Matthew, whose very existence is questionable, 
succeeded to the Baronetcy in 1712. As to the fact that Matthew, or any of 
the petsons undermentioned, were, until 1810, ever known as " Baronets," it 
seems more than doubtful. The pedigree, as finally alleged, is as under, (h)

John Reade, Bart., deceased, and his brother, Sir James Reade, Bart., deceased)

English Baronetcy, through his ancestor. Major John [sic.] Read, 2d sou of the 1st 
Bart., but that sometime afterwards he produced a copy of the will of Sir Matthew

printed in_1832, as also were copies of all papers in the Heralds' College connected 
with this claim.

" Sir Matthew," of 1712, is printed in (that most uncritical work) Playfair's 
Baronetage, 1811. It was doubtless furnished by Sir William himself, together with 
a laudatory account of his own exploits against the Irish rebels. 

{") Two elder brothers, the Rev. John Reade and Charles Reade, are, however, ' 
stated to have been living in 1810. 

(*) This misrepresentation was apparently the cause of the omission of the clause 
enforcing such Knightage in the patents of Baronetage. It would have been a more 
desirable result had it lead to the granting such Knighthood, in the cases only where 
proof of the father's Baronetcy had been furnished.

{") The will is that of Sir Sampson Lennard, but it is manifest that this must 
be a clerical error. In the pedigree entered at the College of Arms he is called 
" Samuel " ; the baptism, the entrance to the Temple, the matric. at Oxford, the 
return to Pari., etc., all refer to " Samuel " ; the will of " Sir Sampson," directs his 
burial to be at West Wickham, where, accordingly (two days before its proof) " Sir 
Samuel Lennard, Bart.," is buried. The name of " Sampson Lennard" does notoccur 
either among the burials or anywhere else, in the pariah register of West Wickham.

(a) See p. 189, note " d," sub " Hungate." 

(b) William Thorold, of "co. York," was Knighted 3 Aug. 1617, at Brougham 
Castle. This description can be explained by his not having as yet succeeded 
his brother Anthony in the Lincolnshire estates. It is hardly probable that the 
William 'J'horold of Lincolnshire, who was knighted 15 March 1603/4, can 
refer to him, as he was then but a younger son, aged about 13. This last-named 
William was probably of the Harmeston branch.

Williamson's Lincolnshire Families, temp. Oar. II.

From information kindly supplied by G. D. Burtchaell [Office 
of Arms, Dublin], it appears that in 1775 a pedigree of Prkstwich, of Holme 
in Lancashire, was registered in Ulster's office, verified 10 Jan- 1775 (1) by 
the joint certificate of George Evans Parkbb and of George Purdon Drew, 
one of the six clerks in Chancery [I.], the latter being s. of Francis Drew, 
of Drew's Court, oo. Limerick, by the eldest ila. of John Ringrose, who 
was s. of Richard Ringrose of Minoe, co. Clare, by Margaret, 3d da. of 
Sir Thomas Pkestwich, of Holme in Lancashire, Bart., which Margaret 
" came over to Ireland to her brother ii^lias, the s. of Sir Thomas Prest- 
wioh, who resided at Balliculliue in co. Limerick " ; and (2) by the affidavit 



(") See p. 217, note " b," under " AoTON." 

(*>) This fact and many others in this article have been kindly supplied by Ernest 
Axon. 

(=) In the admon. of 1689, they are called Isabella Prestwich and PrisciUa 
Prestwich. Their real names appear to have been Arabella, who, 23 June 1692, was 
wife of Matthew Moreton, afterwards 1st Baron Ducie, and who d. 14 March 1749/50, 
aged 90, and Penelope, who was unm. at the said date of 23 June 1692. See a deed 
of that date in the Mis. Gen. et Her., new series, vol, i, p. 14. In that deed they 
call themselves heirs to John Prestwich, late of All Souls' College, Oxford, the 
brother of Sir Thomas, their grandfather. The printed continuation of the pedigree 
in the Visit, of Lancashire, 1613 [Chttham Hoc, vol. 82, p. 41], accords therewith; 
and states that the said John (who d. 30 July 1672, aged 72), gave a legacy of 
£20 in his will, proved 1680, to his cousin Elias Prestwich, of BallacuUom, near 
Limerick, in Ireland. It appears also that Arms to be used at the funeral, at Mort- 
lake, 6 July 1655, of another sister, Mary, were ordered [Harl. MS. 1372]. In 
Burke's Extinct Baronetage yet another sister is mentioned, who does not elsewhere 
appear, viz., Margaret, wife of Richard Ringrose, of Moynoe, oo. Clare, Col, in the 
Army, whose issue is there set out, but the existence of this Margaret seems doubtful. 



CREATIONS [e.1 BY CHARLES I. 223 



Bworn 16 Feb. 1775, of " Elias Prxstwioh, of the city of Dublin, gent.," stating 
that he is the true and lawful son and heir of Richard Peestwioh, who was 
the s. and h. of Elias Prbstwich, who was the s. and h. of Thouas Pbestwioh, 
of Holme, in Lancashire, Bart. 

In the following year (1776) there ia registered the "Genealogy of John 
Pebstwich, Esq., only s. of Sir EIi£^3 Pbestwioh, Bart." This second pedigree 
givesmore details, but they are practically the same so far as the descent and 
marriages of the male line are concerned. John Pbestwioh was not married 
at the time the first pedigree was entered. According to the second pedigree, 
it was Margaret, yst. (not eldest) da. of John Rinqbose, who m. Francis Drew. 

The daughters of Sir Thomas Prbstwioh are stated to be Arabella (eldest 
da.) m. Matthew DnoiB, Lord Morton ; " Preoelia, her name supposed to be, 
2d da., m. ( — ), merchant of London, d. without issue," and Margaret, 3d da., 
m. Richard Ringrose, of Barraboy, near Moynoe, co. Clare. 

Elias Pbestwioh is mentioned as " brother-in-law " by Captain William 
GouGH, of Dunasa, co. Clare, who m. Mercy, da. of George Parker, of Dunkip, 
in his will dat. 14 Sept. 1664; and also as "brother-in-law" by Williiim 
Carpenter, of Limerick, gent., in his will dat. 27 March 1684. He (Carpenter) 
presumably m. another da. of George Parkee, of Dunkip. 

The Pedigrees registered in Ulster Office state that — 

Thomas Pebstwich, of Holme, in Lancashire, Esq., cr. a Banmet, 

25 April 1644, had two sons. John, the eldest, d. unm. in England, and 

Elias Prbstwich, 2d son, who was in the Army, and who came 
over to Ireland in the Army, under the command of Oliver Cromwell, settling 
at Ballaculine, co. Limerick. He m. Anne, da. of George Pabkkr, of Dunkip, 
CO. Limerick, Esq., and had 

Richard Prbstwich, who was a minor about eight years old at 
his father's death. His house and effects were burned by the Irish, but 
he was preserved and secreted by his nurse (an Irish Roman Catholic), 
during the late wars in Ireland. He m. Elizabeth, eldest da. of John 
Lombard, of White Church, co. Cork, and had 

Elias Pebstwich, about sixteen years old at the death of his 
father. He m. Catherine, da. of John Lander, of the City of Cork, 
merchant, and had an only son, 

John Prbstwich, "now [i.e., 1775] living in London," b. 29 Jan. 

1744/5, or (according to second pedigree) "January the 30th 1744/5, o.s., at 
six o'clock in the evening." He m. in April 1776, at London, Margaret, da. 
of Joseph Hall, Alderman of Dublin, by Ruth, 2d da. of Francis Dbew, of 
Drew's Court, co. Limerick. 

These two pedigrees do not give the title of " Sir " or the style of 
"Baronet" to any of the above, and in some particulars differ from the one 
in the Visit, of Lancashire, as printed in the Ohetham Society. They both 
ignore Thomas Pbestwioh, the 2d Baronet, who undoubtedly was the first 
surviving son [and successor] of Sir Thomas, the 1st Bart. 



The title is stated by Courthope, in his Extinct Baronetage 
[1833] to have been "assumed and borne for several generations by the 
possessors of Holm." It certainly was assumed, late in the eighteenth 
century by the John Prbstwich, last abovenamed, who signs himself as 
"Baronet" in his preface, dated "Bath, £ April 1787," to his '■ Sespublica," 
and whose arms, surmounted with the badge of Baronetcy, appear on the 
title page thereto. His descent (indicated on p. 152 therein) is set forth 
fully in a pedigree (apparently composed by himself), which is printed as 
an addition to the Visit of Lancashire, 1613 [Ohetham Society, vol. Ixxxii, 
p. 41]. This makes his father, " Sir Elias Prbstwich, now [1787] living 
in London," to be s. of "' Sir Richard Pebstwich," who was s. of " Sir Elias 
Pbestwioh," s. of " Thomas Prbstwich, of Hulme, co. Lancaster, Bart., cousin 
to Sir Thomas Peestwioh, Banneret." He d. in Dublin, 15 Aug. 1795.

(») To the succession to the Baronetcy after the death of Sir Walter in 1695 there 
were at least four more persons entitled prior to himself, viz., hie father, two of his 
father's elder brothers, and his grandfather. This, too, is exclusive of any issue 
male of the numerous brothers of the 1st Baronet, one of whom, Thomas Williams, 
of London (1653), had a sou, David Williams, of Stapleford, Herts, whose will 
dat. 16 Jan. 1712/3 to 26 Oct. 1715, was pr. 3 Sep. 1717. [£x inform. H. J. T. 
Wood.] The claimant's ancestor was but an uncle of the grantee. 

C") The pedigree in Clutterbuck's Herts (vol. iii., p. 224) is wrong in making 
David Williams, of Corneden, the grandfather of " Sir Gilbert " to be son of Henry 
Williams, of Gwernevet and Eleanor (Whitney), and in making the said Henry 
■ (instead of his son) to be the 1st Bart. The information supplied by " Sir Gilbert" 
to Wotton for his Baronetage of 1741 (who is careful to quote him as his sole 
authority) as to his descent from the 1st Baronet is false and must apparently have 
been known so to be by the informant, who speaks of himself as " successor to his 
cousin, Sir Walter" [who died in or before 1695], but styles his father, through whom 
he derived his claim, and who did not die till 1737 as " Matthew Williams, Esq.," 
and makes no mention of any of his uncles, thie elder brothers (living long after Sir 
Walter's death) of the said Matthew, having either assumed or even laid claim to 
the title. The descent of " Sir Gilbert " from Sir David Williams, the Judge, as 
given in the text, is from the pedigree recorded in the College of Arms [Norfolk, 
vol. vii.]in 1836. 

(") Wotton's Baronetage of that date. The " Sir David Williams, Bart., Guernever

AREANGBD ALPHABETICALLY. 

Memorandum. — There are some Baronetcies conferred shortly before or during 
the CivU War, of which not only the patents (which possibly in many oases hart 
never passed the Seals), but not even the docquets or warrants were enrolleil, 
and which are not mentioned in Dugdale's carefully compiled Cataloque of the 
Baronets of England, as to which see Memorandum on p. 84. A complete, or even 
approximately complete, list of these is unattainable, but there seems reason to 
believe that the following persons obtained, or at all events had the Royal warrant for. 
Baronetcies. The unlawful assumption of titles, which was so common in the nineteenth 
and even in the eighteenth century, was not usual in the seventeenth ; and it will 
be observed that the position of the parties who thus styled themselves, and were 
recognised as, Baronets, was such as to render it unlikely that they would expose 
themselves to the ridicule and contempt attending such assumption. At the same time 
it is evident that in the cases of some of them [e.g., in those of Acland, Boothby, and 
Edwards, where a patent de novo was granted with a clause giving the precedency 
of the former creation), the grant of the dignity by Charles I was not held to be 
sufficient ; while on the contrary, the sufficiency of the creation of others has 
been generally acknowledged. Each case therefore should be judged separately. 
The dates of these Baronetcies, not being in many cases ascertainable, the names 
are here given in alphabetical order.

{') The previous creation of Boothby, 13 July 1660, was practically a similar case, 
and that of Edwards, 22 April, 1678 (the next creation following this one) was 
precisely similar. 

(*) See p. 236, notes " a " and " b." In this case, however, there is said to 
have been a warrant for its creation under the Privy Seal at Oxford, dat. 15 Dec. 
1641. If the creation was before 4 Jan. 1641/2, it would not be affected by the 
disallowing acts of Pari, (see Memorandum on p. 152). Unlike many other un- 
recorded creations of this period, this particular one appears to have been considered 
fictitious by (Dugdale) Garter ; as also by (St. George) Clarenceux, and four other 
Heralds, 3 Sep. 1679 and 19 May (1681), 33 Car. II. See "1 L. 2," (p. 1561', 145)

the Visitation of Gloucestershire of 1682 (printed by the Harleian Society), the above-

or sign manual is enrolled, nor is the creation given in Dugdale's Catalogue, (see 
Memorandum on p. 236), but its existence is acknowledged (as stated in the text) in 
the Heralds' Visitations and elsewhere. The date of creation is indicated in Lodge's 
Peerage of Ireland (edit. 1789, vol. iv, p. 328), as " created, after the King had by 
violence been compelled to leave the Parliament, about 10 Jan. 1641."

HAGGERSTON : 
cr. 15 Aug. 16i2.(<=) 

I. 1642. Thomas Haguerston, of Haggerston Castle, CO. Northum- 

berland, Esq., s. and h. of William Haqgeeston of the same, by 
Margaret, da. of Henry Botlee, of Rowcliffe, oo. Lancaster, having; distinguished

in that county. She was bur. 10 April 1673. He d. at a great age, and was bur. 
7 March 1673/4. 

II. 1674. Sir Thomas Haggerston, Bart. [1642], of Haggerston 

Castle aforesaid, 2d but yst. surviving s. and h. :(*) luc. to the 
Baronetcy, 7 March 1673/4. He was Governor of Berwick Castle, his house there 
being burnt down 19 Feb. 1687 and the damage sustained being above £6,000. Hem. 

as the 450th, between Boreel and Carteret. Anthony a Wood indeed speaks 
(more luo) of Dr. Greaves as a " Pretended Baronet," but Dr. Munk, in his 
"Roll of the Royal College of Physicians," aptly remarks, "I am disposed to 
believe, despite Wood's sueer, that he was really entitled to that dignity. I find 
him so characterised in the Annals ; he styles himself Baronet on the title page of 
his Herveian Oration .... Thomas Guidott, M.B., of Bath, writing of him iu 
1676 says, ' he is full of honour, wealth, and years, being a Baronet, a Fellow of the 
College of Physicians in London, and Physician in Ordinary to His Majesty," and in 
the official list of the Fellows of the College prefixed to the Pharmacopoeia Londinensis 
of 1677, his Baronetcy is acknowledged, and he appears as Edvardus Greaves, 
Baronettus. The point is of some interest, as this is the first instance of an English 
Physician being honoured with an hereditary title." The original patent of creation 
is said to be " in the family of one Mr. Calfe, of St. Leonard's Forest, Sussex " 
[probably descendants of his 2d wife], and a letter of Le Neve, Norroy, says that 
" he was apt to think " that " as the patent was dated at Oxford, 4 May 1645, there 
was no enrollment thereof, which was the case of several persons of honour passed 
about that time, the Rolls being taken into the possession of Parliament." 

(a) Seep. 243, note "e." 

(") The burial at Christ Church, London, 19 Nov. 1669, of "Sir Thomas Graves, 
Barronet, from Newgate," may possibly, if not an erroneous designation, relate to 
this creation. 

(=) See p. 236, note " a." Le Neve in his MS. Baronetage (vol. ii, p. 217) writes, 
" Sir Thomas Haggerton in his letter to me, dated 12 July 1696, saith his patent 
is dated 15 Oct. 1642," but the date usually [though apparently incorrectly] given to 
it is a year later, xiz, 15 Oct. 1643, between Waldegrave (1 Aug. 1643) and Pate 
(28 Oct. 1643).

the Baronetcy became fwfeited, his estates being granted in 1696 in trust for his

s. and h. He d. unm. 24 May 1728, and was lur. in St.

(=■) The words " Baronet " [in full] and " Bt." [when abbreviated], are henceforth 
used in this work instead of the word " Bart.," which familiar abbreviation appears 
to have recently [1900] become odious to several existing Baronets; indeed, in The 
Athenceum of 1 Sep. 1900, the reviewer of Pixley's History vf the Baronetage speaks 
of this usage as being, in that work, indicated to be " one of the worst wrongs 
inflicted on the long-sufifering degree." According to the statement of a certain 
Baronet (10 Sep. 1900), " the words Dart, and .Sorts, cannot be recognised as 
anything but very impure English," but, as he also states in the previous sentence 
that they "do not exist," his sense of impurity seems supernatural. The com- 
piler of the present work is no philologist, and consequently is not deeply moved 
in the matter, but for the sake of courtesy he is willing to comply with the 
sue;gestiou as under, made to him, 19 Sep. 1900, by the author of the abovenamed 
valuable work, "Francis W. Pixley, F.S.A., Registrar to the Honourable Society of 
the Baronetage " : — " It would be gratifying to this Representative Society if you 
would instruct your printers and publishers to refrain throughout the work from 
printing the abbreviation Bart, for Baronet, and to substitute Bt. in cases where 
it is desired not to print the title at full length." 

(>>) The eldest son, Alexander Macdonell, was killed in a duel, 1677, having had 
an only son, Randal, who d. young. This Alexander is sometimes mistaken for his 
namesake, generally known as " Coll. Kittagh," who was killed at the battle of 
Knockranos, 13 Nov. 1647 [O'Donovan's Annals of the Pour Masters.]

temporary author of " An Aphorismical Discovery of Treasonable Faction " refers to

against there having been a lawful son. [Ex inform, G. D. Burtohaell].

i^) Since the publication, in 1880, of the Calendar of the State Papers, Ireland, 
1615-25, his parentage has ceased to be a matter of conjecture. There was con- 
siderable litigation between him and the representatives of his legitimate brother, 
Theobald, Viscount Butler of TuUeophelim [I.], who d. s.p. in Jan. 1613. TuUeo- 
phelim is part of the estate of these Baronets, and the bordure that surrounds their 
arms is an indication of their illegitimacy. 

(«) He, probably, is not identical with Sir Edmund Butler, Knight (in no place 
called Baronet), who was killed, 4 Oct. 1649, at the taking of Wexford by Cromwell. 
That Edmund, who possibly was the " Sir ( — ) Butler, Irish," Knighted at Oxford, 
15 July 1640, was a Roman Catholic, whereas the Cloughgrenan family, from the 1st 
to the present Baronet, have always been Piotestants. [Ex inform. G. D. Burtchaell.]

He suffered great losses, and was one of the persons named in 1662, by Charles

male issue, and mentioning in his will, dat. 1 Sep. 1640, his brother Maurice Fitz- 
Gerald, of Castlelisheen. This, apparently, is the same Maurice who, in a pedigree 
certified, 19 Nov. 1780, by Hawkins, Ulster King of Arms, is (incorrectly) made 
to be a sou of Sir Edmond FitzGerald, the Saronet (of Clenlish), and whose descen- 
dant, in right of such descent, assumed that Baronetcy, as stated in the text below.

county of Limerick, Kn', who was cr. a Baronet the 8 Feb. 1644,"('') a state- 
ment which (coupled with the title of " Barouet " having been given to the Baid 
Richard), presumably, implied that he was heir male of the body of the said 
grantee, and, as such, was entitled to the Baronetcy of the abovenamed date. 
The pedigree as given by Hawkins, the parts within brackets being howfiver 
supplied from elsewhere, is below : — " Sm RiohaKd Fitzgerald, of Castle 
Ishin, CO. Cork, Baronet, son of Maurice Fitzgerald, by Helen, da. of Walter 
BuTLEK (1st son of Richard Butler, Esq., of Kilcasli), which Maurice [ivho d., 
presumably v.p., 16 Sep. 1726, being bur. at Buttevant Abbey, and called on 
the M.I. there 'of Castle Ishin, of the house of Desmond'] was s. [and h.] of 
James Fitz-Gerald (living Jan. 175.3), by [his 1st wife] Amy, da. of Thomas 
FitzGbrald, Knight of Kerry, which James was [a younger] son('') of Garbet 
FitzGehald, by [his •2d wife'] Catherine, da. of Charles O'Bbien, commonly 
called Lord Viscount Claue [I.], which Garret was son of Maumce Fitz- 
Gekald, of Castle Ishin [will dat. 20 March 1678/9 as 'of Castlelisshyne, 
CO. Cork, Esq.,' pr. 7 June 1679 in Prerog. Court of Ireland], by Lady 
Honora [Maccarthv], da. of [Donogb], Eakt.ok Clancabty [I.], which Maurice 
was [according to this pedigree, see, however, p. 266, note " d "] son of Slii 
Edmund Fitzgerald, of Clonlish, co. Limerick, Kn', who was cr. a Baronet 
[I.], 8 Feb. 1644." 

VIHy") 1780. 'Sir Kichard FitzGerald, Baronet" [I. 1644], of 
Castle Ishen, co. Cork, whose parentage and alleged ancestry 
have been above stated. He apparently was b. between 1710 and 1721, (•*) and 
having sue. his father, 16 Sep. 1726, obtained, 18 Nov. 1780, the certificate 
from Ulster King of Arms mentioned above, styling him a- Baronet, and 
implying that he was entitled to the Baronetcy [I.] conferred 6 Feb. 1643/4.(») 
He m. Joanna Maria, da. and li. of James Teant, of Dingle, co. Kerry. He d. 
about 1787. Will pr. 1787 in Prerog. Court [I.]. 



{^) Foster's Baronetage for 1883, p, 698 (being in the part of that work called 
" Chaos "), where a full account of this assumption is given, from which the one in 
the text is mainly derived. 

(*>) An elder br. of this James is said to have been Maurice FitzGerald '■ of Castle 
Ishen," who d. s.p. Feb. 1750, but the date of the will of the said James, also of 
Castle Ishen, dat. 19 Jan. 1753, and pr. 27 Nov. 1768, is hardly consistent with his 
son and his son's wife (the contiuuators of the line), having d. in 1726 and 1721 
respectively. 

(") This number is purely conjectural. " Sir Richard " is stated in Playfair's 
Baronetage to have been "the second of this family who bore that title, but the 6th 
in descent from the 1st Baronet." The second Baronet was, however, s. and h. of 
the first, and was not (even according to Hawkins' pedigree) one of " Sir Richard's " 
lineal ancestors. " Sir Richard's " grandfather had an elder brother, Maurice, 
who d. s.p. Feb. 1750 (see note " b " above), and who may, apparently, be reckoned, 
equally with himself, as entitled to this dignity, thereby rendering '• Sir Richard " 
the 7th in succession. 

(d) His sister Mary, who m. 29 Nov. 1731, the Earl of Fingall [I.], was probably 
h. about 1710 ; their mother d. in 1721. 

(e) " There can be no doubt that the claim of the Castle Ishen (properly Castle- 
lishen) family to the title was devoid of foundation. It was not acknowledged by Sir 
W. Betham, Ulster King of Arms. The fact that Maurice Fitzgerald, late of 
Castielisheen, Esq., was 4th and yst. s. of Sir Edmund FitzGerald, of Cloyne (by 
Honora, widow of John FitzGerald, of Ballymarter, commonly called the Seneschal 
of Imokilly, da. of James FitzGerald, of Desmond) appears from a pedigree of the 
Desmond family in Ulster's office in the year 1684, as also that Katharine, 2d da. of 
Conor O'Bryen, 2d Lord Clare, married Gerrott FitzGerald, surv. s. of Maurice, of 
Castielisheen " [G. D. Burtchaell].

ceeding, some of which were afterwards enrolled ; some suggested titles appear never 
to have reached a privy seal, and so were not assumed, e.g., the Earldom of Wexford 
for Viscount Mountgarret, and the Viscounty of Newry for Walter Bagenal, of 
Dunleckney. The privy seal for Walsh is set out in full in the Fiant. I think the

1625—1707. 



Memmandum. — The province of Nova Scotia in North America was annexed to 
the Kingdom of Scotland, and granted, under the Great Seal, 10 [not 29] Sep. 1621, 
to Sir William Alexander, of Menstrie (subsequently .Eael of Stirling [S.]) as a 
foreign plantation. " The personal influence of Sir William with the King [James I] 
caused him to approve of the scheme of creating in Scotland an hereditary dignity 
under the titles of Knights Baronets of Nova Scotia, by means of a scheme similar 
to that which had proved successful for colonising the districts in the province of 
Ulster."('') He accordingly informed the Privy Council of Scotland of his design, 
18 Oct. 1624, who, on 30 Nov. following, issued a proolaniation announcing the King's 
intention of creating 100 such Baronets on 1 April next. Before that date was 
reached, viz. on 27 March 1625, King James died, but the grant of 1621 was confirmed 
in a novodamus, 12 July 1625, by Charles I, who, however (six weeks before), on 
28 May 1625, had already nominated the premier Baronet, Gordon, as also, then, 
or a few days later, some others. Pixley [Uistori/ of Baronetage, p. 160], states that 
ten Baronetcies had been created between 28 May and 19 July 1625, viz., Gordon, 
Strachan, Keith, Campbell, Innes, Wemyss, Livingston, Douglas, Macdouald, and 
Murray. This statement is probably correct, but it is added that, on the 
said 19 July, the King acquainted the Lords of the Privy Council [S.], "that he 
had created the above [ten] Baronets" whereas in his letter of that date, he makes 
no mention of the names or number of such his creations, but merely eays 
that. " we have preferred some to be Knight Baronettes." The Royal charter 
of 28 May 1625 (given in full in Pixley's work, pp. 59-89), " which was twice 
ratified and confirmed by acts of the Pari, of Scotland, viz., 31 July 1630 and 
28 June 1633 .... was made, by subsequent instruments under the Great 
Seal, the regulating charter for the Baronets of Scotland and Nova Sootia."('') 
Each Baronet received, on the resignation of Sir William Alexander, above- 
named "a grant of 16,000 [or more in some cases, as in that of Keith] acres of 
land in the Royal Province of Nova Scotia (which, as anciently bounded, 
eomprehended Nova Scotia proper. Cape Breton, Anticosti, Gaspe, Prince 
Edward's Island and New Brunswick), to be incorporated into a full entire 
and free Barony and Regality for ever to be held of the Kingdom of 
Scotland('') .... The number of jjersons when this order was instituted 
in 1625 was not to exceed 150, and Nova Scotia w-as nominally divided into 
so many Baronies. The sum payable by each was 3,000 merks (the equivalent 
to £166 11 13s. 4d. sterling) of which one-third was to go into [Sir W.] Alexander's 
pocket, he engaging that the other two-thirds should be expended in setting forth 
the plantation. During the first four years the applicants who received patents were 
only about 60 ; during the next 10 years about 50 more, and thus the object re- 
mained unaccomplished during the reign of Charles although its original sphere was 
so enlarged as to render persons not connected with Scotland admissible to this 
dignity."('') During the entire reign of Charles I " 122 Baronets [S.] appear to have 

('') The Editor is deeply indebted to Sir James Balfour Paul, Lyon King of Arms, 
for numerous and most valuable additions (of which the most important only are 
specifically acknowledged) to the account here given of these dignities. The reader, 
however, must not imagine that (unless expressly so stated) this account has the 
official, or even the practical imprimatur of " Lyon," but must consider it merely 
as the one which seems to be the most correct, or at least the most probable, to 
the compiler. Robert Riddle Stodart, Lyon Clerk Depute (1863-86), kindly gave, 
from his own genealogical collection, much information as to some of these 
Baronetcies.

been created, of whom about 111 had grants ot' 16,000 acres each,"("') but such 
grants ceased altogether after 1638. (b) 

The somewhat complicated history of Nova Scotia as respects its alternate 
possession by England or France, and the sale, or alleged sale, in 1630, by Sir W. 
Alexander of all " his title to the whole of Nova Scotia, with the exception of Port 
Royal," are set forth in Laing's New Scotland Tracta.{'^) 

" It is no easy matter to prepare a very accurate or satisfactory List op these 
Knioht Baronets [S.]. The earliest list 1 have met with is contained in A catalogve 
of the Dukes, etc. of England, Scotland, and Ireland, etc., collected by T. W. [i.e., 
Thomas Walkeley] London, 1640, 12mo. At p. 21 [pp. 117-120 of the edit. pub. in 
1642] the names of Knight Baronets of Scotland, amounting in all to 95, including Sir 
Henry Gib (of St. Martin's) but the dates of the patents are not given. Of this 
catalogue by T. W., or Thomas Walkeley, Lowndes quotes several editions."(°) Tbis 
catalogue ends about 1638, with the names of Sir John Lowther, Sir Gilbert 
Pickering, Sir Edward Longevile, Sir Thomas Perse [i.e., Piers], Sir Edward 
Musgrave, and Sir William Witherington, all six stated to be English. 

Another list (containing, however, but 70 Baronets) ending, about the same date, 
with the name of Sir Henry Bingham [cr. 30 June 1634], and signed " T. P., Ulster" 
[i.e., Thomas Preston, Ulster King of arms, 1633-1642], is now remaining in Ulster's 
office. A copy of this has courteously been sent to the Editor by G. D. Burtohaell, 
with the kind permission of Sir Arthur Vicars, Ulster King ot arms. 

The " Roll of Baronets op Nova Scotia who had territorial grants from Sir 
William Alexander, Earl of Stirling," is printed in Laing's New Scotland 2'iacts.{') 
The grantees there given are 114 in number and it is stated that "the Precepts are 
entered" in a volume at the General Register House, Edinburgh, entitled "Segist. 
Precep. Cart, pro Baronettis Nov. Seotim, 1625-1630." The reference to the pages in 
that volume, which refers to 94 of these Baronetcies, are set out, it being (somewhat 
perplexingly) added, that as to the remaining 20, " the names having no references are 
given on the authority of former lists." The date, presumably that of the creation of the 
dignity is affixed to all but these three, viz.: — No. 41, "James Campbell of Aberuchill," 
placed between 13 Dec. 1627 and 1 Jan. following ; No. 63, " Edward Barrett, Lord of 
Newburgh," placed between 2 Oct. 1628, and 26 June following, and No. 93 " Sir 
John Gascoigne" placed next, after 6 Jan. 1634/5, to whom however the date in 
brackets of " 8 June " is affixed. At the end of this list, which concludes with No. 
114, Sir Edward Longueville, 17 Dec. 1638, is added : "Two blank precepts, names 
and dates not supplied. Several of the above are included in the Register of the 
Great Seal, and also at great length in the Register of SigTiatouris in the o^ce of 
ComptroUene, but others, prbbably from not having paid the fees, seem not to have 
been registered. "(e) This chronologically arranged list is the one chiefly followed, as 
to the placing of these Baronetcies, by the editor of this present work. 

By far the most valuable list of these Baronets is that by Robert Milne, printed from 
a MS. in the Advocates' Library, Edinburgh, supposed to have been taken from a 
list or book of accounts in the Exchequer which was destroyed by a fire that occurred 
in that office. This list has been printed (with various additions) by Joseph Foster 
in his Baronetage for 1883, and (uYilike the lists abovenamed) extends beyond the reign

(•>) The following interesting and contemporary account of this institution is given 
by the first member thereof, Sir Robert Gordon, in his History of the Earldom of 
Sutherland. " This yeir of God 1625, King Charles created and instituted the order of 
Knights-Baronets in Old Scotland, for the furtherance of the plantation of New 
Scotland in America, being the true mean or honor betuein a Barone of Parlament 
and a Knight ; a purpose intended by his father of worthie memorie, bot perfyted by 
his Majestic. Sir Robert Qordoun, tutor of Southerland, wes maid the first Baronet 
of the Kingdome of Old Scotland and called Baronet Gordoun, which dignitie wes by 
his Majestie's lettres patent under his Great Scale granted to him and to his heyrs- 
maill whatsoever. The Lairds of Cluny and Lesmoir, both of the surname of 
Gordoun, were also this yeir created Baronets. James Gourdoun, the Laird ot 
Lesmoir's eldest sone, wes knighted, according to the tennor of his father's 
patent, wherby the Baronet's eldest sones are to be knighted at the aige of 21 years, 
is ther fathers bee then alive."
