the heirs male of the said Edward Goodere," the grantee. It is presumed that the 
words " of the body " are by mistake omitted after the word " male " in both 
instances. It is possible that as John was the 2d son, his elder br. (slain in a 
duel v.p. and s.p.) may thus have been postponed to him.

(<=) A list of the 32 members elected in Feb. 1717 (including the King, as 
governor) of this notorious company (founded 1702-03, 1 Anne), is given in 
Stow's London (edit. 1720), vol. v, 272. In Aug. 1720, its shares attained their 
maximum (£1,000 for every £100), but before Christmas it had entirely collapsed, 
ruining thereby many thousands of families, as well as the (in some cases 
innocent) directors, all of those who were M.P's being expelled from Parliament.

17X3 to 1783 (4th edit.), vol. ii, pp. 4-38.

Carroll. The alteration of the name of " O'Crean " to " O'Connor " in Dalton's 
King James' Irish Army List (vol. i, p. 315) is an error, possibly indeed an 
accidental one, as the account there (though stated to be on the authority of an 
ancient MS.) follows in all other respects the pedigree in Keating's Irela/nd.

(d) Either kingdom might lay claim to this Baronetcy, but it is here treated 
of as one of Great Britain. In the obituary of the grantee (Gent. Mag. and 
London Mug.) he is called " Baronet of Great Britain," and the Baronetcy (though 
under the erroneous date of 18 Feb. 1742, as to which see p. 13, note " c "), is 
placed in Beatsou's List of such Baronetcies, and in that in Betham's Baronetage 
[1806], in both of which he is described as " of Denton, Yorkshire," though on 
what ground is unknown. Solly's /Hiie.c [1880] follows the above, adding " s.p. 
1758, extinct."

an older man, also commemorated by O'Callaghan [Irish Brigade, p. 287] and

1698, and who died in 1712." [G. D. Burtchaell].

Admiral who had been so cr. 29 May 1689. This last creation was but seven 
months, after an earlier Earldom of Torrington, had become extinct, by the death,

PERROTT, or PERROT :{') 

1716, or 1711(<=) to 1759? 

" Sir James Perrot," one of the children of " Richard 
Pekrott," by " Anne, da. of Gabriel Smith, of the Brookhouse, in 
Cheshire," is alleged (though apparently untruly) to hare been " employed 
in many capacities by the GoTernment, and, on his relinquishing a 
balance due to him for the redemption of British slaves " is alleged to 
have been " cr. a Baronet, 1 July 1716, (c) with limitation to the eldest 
son of his brother Richard and his heirs male, but nbt permitted to 
take rank from the original grant of this dignity to Sir Francis PERR0TT,(d) 
Knight and Baronet, 29 June 1611."(^) This alleged grant of 1611 was, 
however, undoubtedly fictitious. 



(^) See an account of this family, in Wotton's Baronetage, 1st edit. 1727. 

C') This John was son of John Dutry, of Thonnin, in the province of Guienne 
in France, said to have been son of " one of the Prime Ministers at the Court of 
Governante of the Netherlands, the Dutchess of Parma," but to have been dis- 
inherited by his father for having become a Protestant. See note " a " above. 

(>-■) The date, 1 July 1717, is assigned to the Perrott creation in " the list of all 
the Baronets from their first institution," given in Kiniber's Baronetage [1771], 
presuming the grantee there called " Robert Perrot, of Richmond, Surrey, Esq. " 
(whose Baronetcy was then [1771] " claimed by Sir Richard, who has no patent "), 
to be the same person as the " Sir James " in the text. This date of 1717 is 
copied in Courthope's List of all the Baronetcies of England, but inasmuch as 
the date of 1 July 1716, is that of the precedency granted to Sir Richard Perrott 
by the Royal Warrant of 3 Jan. 1767, the date of 1717 is presumably an error for 
1716. No creation of a Baronetcy of Perrot under either date is to be found 
in Wotton's Baronetage [1741]. 

(*) Francis is apparently meant for Thomas, it being stated (see note " e " 
below) that Sir Thomas Perrott, who m. Dorothy, d. of Walter (Devereux), Earl 
of Essex, and who d. s.p.m., " was cr. u, Baronet, 29 June 1611, but died before his 
patent was made out." Not only, however, is there no warrant for such creation, 
but the will of the said Sir Thomas Perrott was pr. 1594, and in 1595 his relict 
was the wife of the Earl of Northumberland, more than fifteen years before this 
alleged creation. .,„,,, -o r

No locality is assigned to this James, neither can the date of his death 
or any other particular be ascertained abont him. It is probable that he 
is meant for the same person(") as Robert Perrot mentioned next below. 



by " Mr. T. L." [i.e., Thomas Lowndes, one of the booksellers whose names 
appear in the title page to that work], which purports to give "a short 
accouQt of Sir Richard and his family, from a curious pedigree left by him 
in the hands of the late Mr. Kiniber." This mendacious account of the 
family is, for the most part, the authority for the statements in the text, as 
above. The earlier portion is stated to be based on a pedigree (deducing the 
family from " Brutus, who first inherited this land, which after him was called 
Britain about 116 years before the birth of Christ"), which purposes to be 
made by one Owen Griffiths, who was wounded in Carew Castle, in 1650, by 
the side of his master. Sir James Perrott, " Marquis of Nerberth," etc. There 
was, however, no siege of Carew Castle in 1650 (which indeed had surrendered 
in 1644), neither was there any Marquess of Narbeth, though the pedigree 
(which, of course purports to have been compiled at some date after 1650) is 
dedicated to him. This Sir James Perrott, who is stated in one part of this 
account to have had a warrant from Charles I for his creation as " Marquis 
of Narbeth, Earl and Viscount Carew, and Baron Perrott," and to have been 
in command at Carew Castle in 1650 is, however, stated elsewhere therein, 
to have died in 1641, though (as a matter of fact) his will was pr. as early as 
May 1637. Thomas, elsewhere called Francis (who d. in or before 1594), elder 
br. of this James, is said to have been cr. a Baronet in 1611, though that date 
is more than fifteen years after his death (see p. 33, note "d"). This Sir Thomas 
had in reality but owe " da. and sole heir" [Top. and Gen. ii, 501], Penelope, 
who m. (1) Sir Thomas Gower, and (2) Sir Kobert Naunton, but another da. is 
here (falsely) assigned to him, viz., Dorothy, who is alleged to have m. her cousin, 
James Perrott, and to have been ancestress of the (so called) Baronet of 1767, said, 
in her right, to quarter the arms of " Devereux, Earls of Essex." The said James 
is stated to be s. of Thomas, s. of Owen Perrott {d. 1597), who is said to 
have been a yr. br. of Sir John Perrott, K.B., the Lord Deputy of Ireland 
(father of Sir Thomas Perrott, the alleged Baronet of 1611), both being sons of 
Sir Thomas Perrott, of Haroldston, co. Pembroke. — No such Owen Perrott, 
however, nor any such Dorothy ever existed. (See B. L. Barnwell's Notes on the 
Perrott Family, 1867, p. 62). This James Perrott, said to have been in right of 
his mother, "Lord of Wellington under Dinmer, oo. Hereford," is stated to 
have had three sons, by this apocryphal Dorothy, viz. (1) Sir Herbert Perrott 
[whose will was pr. Sep. 1683] ; (3) James Perrott, who d. 1683, and was bw, 
at Haverfordwest; and (2) Francis [called a few lines lower "Thomas") 
Perrott, of Upper Bignall Hill, who is stated to have been father of Richard, 
the father of James Perrott, stated therein to have been cr. a Baroi\et, 1 July 
1716, and of Richard, father of " Sir Richard Perrot, the present [1771] Baronet." 
The above genealogy is thns spoken of as early as 1811 in Fenton's weU-known 
Historicid Tour through Pemhrokeshire, "The pedigree this charlatan Baronet 
delivered in, is a most curious travesty of the genuine one appertaining 
to that family * * * and may throw some light on the history of a man, who 
blazed on the town about thirty-five years ago, and practised his imposture so 
successfully that there exists a fiat of his present majesty, dated 3 Jan. 1767 
* » * for his taking rank and title from 1 July 1716." T. C. Banks (in his 
Baronia Angl. Cone, vol. ii, p. 1167) speaks (1) of this warrant as " declaratory of 
honours that were never granted," and (2) of the pedigree as a compilation that 
" one would imagine was rather the fruit of a disordered mind than the 
produce of a serious research and faithful representation." 

(a) This view is adopted in Burke's Baronetage (1902), but there is no such 
person as a Robert Perrott, in the pedigree supplied by Sir Richard to Kimber s 
Baronetage [1771], the said Richard being therein stated to have succeeded Us 
uncle, James Perrott, the grantee in the Baronetcy.

No such Eobert Perrott, however, is mentioned in Sir Richard's pedigree 
(see p. 33, note " e "), and no patent, sign manual, docquet, nor any other 
document exists to indicate that any person named James, or Eobert 
Perrot, was created, or was intended to be created, a Baronet iu 1716 or 
1717. A Royal Warrant, however, dated 3 Jan. 1767, was obtained,(''.) in 
which it is stated that " to avoid all doubts and disputes about the rank 
and precedency of Sir Richard Perrott, Baronet " (whose relationship, 
however, to any former Baronet is not indicated), the place, rank, pre- 
cedency, etc., of a Baronet, to commence from 1 July 1716, are granted to 
him and the heirs male of his body. This grant of the precedency of a 
Baronetcy of 1 July 1716, made by a Royal Warrant, dated more than 
fifty years later, will (though more properly belonging to the date of 
the said warrant, 3 Jan. 1767) be dealt with (for the sake of convenience) 
under the date of 1 July 1716.

{^) Oent. Mag. for 1759. In that publication for 1769 is the death in Nov. of 
" Sir Richard Perrot, DiMin." This last person, however, is not styled a Baronet. 
It is to be observed, however, that the then [1771] Baronet is spoken of as 
" Sir Richard Perrott," as early as 24 Oct. 1758 (see p. 33, note " c "), while it is 
stated in J. 6. Nichols's article (see note " c " below), that " he sue. as 2d Baronet 
in 1731." 

(c) See an able article in the Her. and Gen. (vol. viii, pp. 314-324 (by its 
accomplished editor, John Gough Nichols, F.S.A., a most acute genealogist), 
entitled " Sir Richard Perrott, a soi-disant Baronet." The words used therein, 
as applied to the Royal warrant of 3 Jan. 1767, are, that it was " surreptitiously 
obtained " ; and the grantee is styled " one of the most daring pretenders to 
title and pedigree in the last [i.e., the eighteenth] century." The matter is 
fully dealt with in that article, and the proceedings described therein appear 
to justify the strong language used above. 

(^) According to the Royal warrant, dated 3 Jan. 1767, and signed " H. S. 
Conway," whereby "to avoid all doubts and disputes about the rank and 
precedency of our trusty and well beloved subject Sir Richard Perrott, Baronet," 
it is declared that he " and the heirs male of his body lawfully begotten, shall 
have and enjoy in all places, assemblies and meetings, the place, rank, pre- 
eminence, precedency, privileges and immunities of, or belonging to the degree of 
a Baronet of this our Realm, and to take place and commence as from 1 July 
1716." No Royal warrant, it is believed, ever has or ever can create a hereditary 
dignity (such as that of a Baronetcy or Peerage), and though such warrant can 
direct letters patent of creation to be issued, or can refer to any such patent 
that had previously been passed, this [most extraordinary] warrant does 
neither. The effect of this Royal warrant is, apparently, not to create a Baronetcy, 
but to give to its recipient and " the heirs male of his body " the style and 
precedency of a Baronet of the creation of 1 July 1716. See J. G. Nichols's 
article (note " e" above), as to the obtaining of this document. As to the date 
of 1 July 1716 or 1 July 1717, which is that of a Baronetcy alleged to have 
been conferred on James Perrot and Robert Perrott, respectively, see text, 
pp. 33 and 35, under these respective dates.

shortly before 1716, and is said to have sue. to a Baronetcy conferred on 
his uncle, James Perrot, 1 .Tuly 1716, with a spec. rem. in his faTour.('') 
The date of his succession to this alleged Baronetcy is stated to have 
been in 1731, (c) but a notice (Gent. Mag., 1759) of the death at Brussels, 
29 May 1759, of a " Sir Bohert Peerot, Bt.," coupled with an alleged 
creation (see above) on 1 July 1717 [not, however, 1716], as a Baronet, 
of "Robert Perrot, of Richmond, Surrey, Esq., now claimed by Sir Richard, 
who has no patent " (see List of all the Baroiiets in Kiraber's Baronetage 
[1771]), rather suggests that Robert{^) (not James) was the uncle he 
purported to succeed and that 1759 (not 1731) was the date of such 
succession. It is to be observed that there is no reference in this 
warrant to any Baronetcy of the date of 1 July 1716 having ever been 
granted, nor to the Christian name [Qy. James or Robert?] or surname 
IQy. Perrot ?] of the grantee, but the date is that of the Baronetcy 
alleged by the grantee of the warrant of 1767 (*) to have been conferred 
on his uncle " Sir James Perrot," with a special remainder to himself. 
This Richard Perrot is stated to have been " of a military genius and 
in service in East India before he was 14 years old," and to have received 
from Frederick, King of Prussia, a [most extraordinary] commission 
(called in J. G. Nichols's article [see p. 35, note " c "] a "pretended com- 
mission"), dated 24 Oct. 1758, in which that King "confided solely to 
him the sole care of his intended marine," with instructions to destroy 
the ships of the Empress Queen, the King of Sweden, and the Grand 
Duke of Tuscany. The comment added thereto is that " A Lord High 
Admiral of Great Britain could not have been vested with more extra- 
ordinary powers. "('■) He however procured a Royal warrant (said to 
have been "surreptitiously obtained, "('^) dated 3 Jan. 1767 (in which he 
is styled "Sir Richard Perrott, IBaeonet"), whereby, to avoid all 
doubts about his rank or precedency, he and the heirs male of his 
body are granted the rank, precedency, privileges, etc., of a Baronet, 



(") In the pedigree put forth by him (as to which see p. 33, note " f"") his 
mother is said to be " Rebecca, da. of Isaac Wyke, of Wacton Court, in Hereford- 
shire, Esq., paternally descended from Wyke, a Knight, to whom William the 
Conqueror granted divers lands," etc. No description or place of residence is 
given to his father (said in Burke's Baronetage for 1902 to have been "of 
Broseley, Salop"), but these particulars have been supplied by an article in the 
Oeiit. Mug. for Feb. 1770, entitled " Particulars of the noted Perrot, who presented the 
Fliiil petition," where it is stated that "The pretended Baronet is plain D—k 
P — t, the second son of one P — t, a decayed Distiller, of Mardol, in Shrewsbury ; 
his elder brother an Apothecary, but now practices as a Physician at Tewkesbury, 
by virtue of a diploma from Leyden." 

(*") According to the recipient's account (as to the value of which see p. 33, 
note " e," circa finem) printed in Kimber's Baronetage [1771], and, apparently 
according to that account alone. 

(<:) The words in J. G. Nichols's article (see p. 35, note " r") are, "He 
succeeded, we are told, as 2d Baronet in 1731," but it does not appear therein 
where "we are told " of this fact. 

(^) No such Robert, however, appears in the pedigree (see note " o " above), 
and the [marvellous] commission (printed therewith) signed by Frederick, King 
of Prussia, and dated 24 Oct. 1758, speaks of him [at that date] as " S'' Richard 
Perrott." Possibly, however, as the commission is in French, and as neither the 
word " Chevalier" nor that of " Baronet " is used, the " S""' does not necessarily 
indicate that he was either.

at the battle of Culloden in 1745 " in personal attendance on the 
Duke of Cumberland," and to have been cr. a Baron by Louis XV of 
Prance " with the privilege of the tabouret to his Lady and the wives of 
his successors." C") A. very different account of his career previous to 
1770 is given elsewhere. (-) He, undoubtedly, presented a loyal address 
8 Jan. 1770 from " the Bailiffs, Corporation and borough of Flint " to the 
young Prince of Wales, expressive of their disapproval of petitions for the 
dissolution of ParliameutC) ; and his house " in Gloucester View, Park 
lane," was not long after " dismantled " by cue of the Wilkes mobs and its 
" costly effects " burned, though " in compensation he received a grant of 
the ancient manor of Cheslemere (wherever that may be)," etc.(**) He m.

had been granted in 1789, was living at 25 Warren street, Pitzroy sqiiare, 
Marylebone, 7 Deo. 1803.(8) 



(a) See p. 35, note " d," as to the Royal' warrant. It may be observed that 
(probably from inadvertence) nothing is said therein about the style of a Baronet, 
but possibly the style of " Sir " may be considered as included among the 
" privileges" belonging to that degree. 

{^) See J. G. Nichols's article (as on p. 35, note " n ") where it is observed that 
" To the initiated in Court etiquette this statement will appear scarcely less 
ridiculous than the appointment to be Lord High Admiral of Prussia. The 
privilege of the tabouret (or to be seated on a stool in the Royal presence) was 
confined to the Duchesses of Prance and the wives of grandees of Spain, and 
attempts to extend it to titular Princesses were jealous resisted. See the 
Memoires du Due de Saint Simon." 

(c) i.e., In the article in the Oent. Mag. for Feb. 1770 (as to which see p. 36, 
note " a," where several very discreditable transactions as to swindling women out 
of their fortune as well as character are recounted, and it is added that at 
Worcester " he passed for a Knight of the Order of the Eagle of Prussia — that 
was his travelling title there," and that " in 1760 he passed at Beverley, in York- 
shire, for Admiral to his Prussian Majesty, and pretended a commission to 
purchase shipping for that monarch, but Lord Rockingham, suspecting the 
impostor, obliged him to decamp." 

(■1) The following comments thereon occur in the Historical Chronicle of the 
Oent. Mag. for Jan. 1770 : — " The concurring accounts that are published in the

(' ) The Baronetcy appears in Burke's Baronetage of 1847 for, apparently, the 
first time, being certainly absent in that of 1841. It is not in Debrett's Baronetage 
of 1819, 1824 or 1840, nor in Playfair's Baronetage (1809), nor (as an existing 
creation) in Betham's Baronetage (1805), but in that work it is given in the list 
of creations (under 1767, "with precedency from 1 July 1716"), being printed 
initalics to signify that it was then extinct, being, presumably, so considered after 
the death of the grantee of the warrant of the precedency of a Baronetcy of 1767.

C") The family were settled in this parish as early as 1608, when their 
name first appears in the parish register in a baptism (24 Feb.) of " Mary, 
da. of Thomas Elton, Dr. of Physic." This Dr. Thomas Elton, who d. at Bath, 
1618, left a large family (mostly bop. -at Bristol), and makes his brother, 
Ambrose Elton, of the Hazles, near Ledbury, one of his executors. One of 
his sons, Richard Elton, of Bristol (bap. 29 April 1610 in the same parish), 
was Col. of the London 'Train bands, and was afterwards Deputy Gov. of Hull, 
being a well known Puritan, as were most of his Bristol kindred. They, 
according to Wotton's Baronetage [1741] (who states it to be " eie inform. 
Ab. Elton, Bar., 1727"), were "of an ancient family, till lately of the Hazle in 
Herefordshire, and Gloucestershire." This letter, dated 26 Sep. 1725 [sic], is 
written in the third person, and is [1905] among the Addit. MSS. [24,120, fo. 301] 
in the British Museum. The date of " 1727 " as ascribed to it in Wotton's 
Baronetage [second edition 1741] means, no doubt, that the information was 
given for the first edition of that work, which was issued in 1727.

1857 till cr. a Peer in 1868. He claimed in 1841 the Barony of Fitzwalter {cr.

The abeyance however was not terminated in his favour, (>*) though some twenty-

29 Feb. 1756, Fanny Fowler (afterwards Lady Bridges) became (in right of her said 
grandmother, Frances Mildmay) one of the three coheirs of that ancient Barony. 

C") Brook Bridges, the 1st s., was b. 14 Aug. 1766, aud'd. v.p. 9 July 1781. 

(") Presumably this was done at Confirmation, but there is no indication as 
to the date, which was probably after the death (9 July 1781) of his elder br. 
Brook. There is a curious note on this ecclesiastical ■' assumption of a new 
christian name" in Betham's Baronetage [1803], which, however, in Foster's 
Baronetage is stated to have been done by Act of Parliament. An instance of 
change of baptismal name is entered in the parish register of St. Finn Bai-r's 
Cathedral, Cork, under 21 Sep. 1761, being that of Lieut. Robert St. George 
Caulfield, 93d Foot, then presented for confirmation, who was permitted by the 
Bishop to change his name of Robert St. George to that of William, and was 
confirmed as William. 

(*) A vulgar proverb says that " Kissing goes by favour," and the Whig 
Ministry of the early Victorian period were scrupulously careful not to allow 
any considerations of Equity or Desert to prevent the extension of this sound 
maxim to the domain of abeyances. Sir Brooke's politics were Tory and this 
ensured the rejection of his claim, and it mattered not at all that the abeyance 
of numerous Baronies (e.g. Beaumont, Braye, Camoys, Hastings, etc.), were, at 
or about the same time terminated, these being in favour of Whig claimants 
(notwithstanding the fact that the said Baronies had been for centuries unheard 
of and that the fortunate claimants in most cases represented a very small 
fraction of them), while in this case the Barony of Fitzwalter had continued 
uninterruptedly from 1295 to 1756, and the claimant (who in all probability 
was heir tg the entirety) was undoubtedly the representative of a moiety thereof.

refusing to be Master of the Merchant Taylors' Company, in which month the 
shares of the South Sea Company (in which he was deeply involved) were at 
their highest price, but before Christmas it had collapsed, and he (as were the 
other Directors) was compelled to render the value of his estate, which, in his 
case, was £183,349 10s. 8Jd.(d) Twelve years later, viz. in 1732, he was fined by

Will as of Westham, Essex, dat. 27 Nov. 1742, pr. 10 Sep. 1743. 

(a) Their marriage, 27 March 1654, is thus recorded at Stroud, co. Kent, 
"Thomas Blunt, of Strood, Shoemaker (the son of John Blunt, of St. Sepulchre's, 
London, Upholder), and Isabella Blacke, of Frindsbury (da. of Thomas Blacke, 
yeoman), after three times being published." This entry (interesting as illus- 
trative of the status of the alleged male descendants of the ancient Counts of 
Guisnes) carries the grantee's pedigree as far back as to his grandfather, whereas 
his very parentage had been ignored in all the Baronetages of the eighteenth and 
of the nineteenth century. In the first edition [1727] of Wotton's Baronetage, he 
is indeed said to have been " descended from the ancient family of the Blunts 
in Shropshire," but these words are omitted (probably not without a good reason) 
by the careful editor of that work in his second [1741] edition. In Debrett's 
Baronetage [1840] it is said that " this family is supposed to be descended from 
a junior branch of the Blounts of Sodington, which was seated at Eye and 
Stretton, co. Hereford," but in Burke's Baronetage of 1871, the father of the 
grantee {viz., " Thomas Blunt, of Rochester," ignored in the 1841 edition), appears, 
together with the positive statement that " This is a branch of the ancient and 
eminent family of Blunt or Blount," called (in earlier editions) " Le Blount, 
descended from the Earls of Guisnes." Finally in Burke's Baronetage for 1902 
the grantee's father is said to have been " Thomas Blunt, oi' Blount, of Rochester, 
Kent, and formerly of ]Sye, Herefordshire," but as we now find that this Thomas 
Blunt was a shoemaker at Stroud or Rochester from 1654 till his death in 1703, 
and was the son of John Blunt of St. Sepulchre's, London, " Upholder," there 
does not seem much probability of his ever having figured as " Thomas Blount, 
of Eye," CO. Hereford. There is indeed a conjectural pedigree among Biglaud's 
MSS., preserved in the College of Arms [R.B.G., vol. ii), deducing this Thomas 
(the Baptist shoemaker) from the well known (Roman Catholic) family of 
Blount, of Bye, co. Hereford, but it does not agree with the pedigree of that 
family in the Visit, of Herefordshire, 1634. 

(•>) There are no entries of births or baptisms of this family at St. Nicholas', 
Rochester, prior to that of 24 July 1665, the births of the three elder children 
(Thomas, Elizabeth, and Joane, 30 March 1655, 21 Feb. 1657, and 25 Oct. 1660), 
being entered among the baptisms of Stroud.

this Company. 

{^) " The public indignation was pointed chiefiy against Sir John Blunt, as 
Projector, and against [the Earl of] Sunderland and Aislabie as heads of the 
Treasury . . The character of Blunt himself was that of a dishonest and 
now ruined man." [Stanhope's England, as on p. 10, note " o."] 

(") He appealed therefrom, and a day was appointed for the hearing, but no 
further proceedings took place, possibly on account of his death, a few months 
later, in Jan. 1732/3.

of the notorious Lord Chancellor Jeffreys, who had been " dragged into the 
Justice room followed by a raging multitude " after his capture at Wapping.

III. 1792. Sill William Codrington, Baronet [1721], only s. and 
h., b. about 1737 ; matric. at Oxford (Ch. Ch.), 9 May 1755, aged 
18; sue. to the Baronetcy, 11 March 1792, but to none of the principal estates 
which were left by his father(") to his [the said father's] nephew, Christopher 
Codrington, afterwards Bethell-Codeington, as is mentioned below. This 
Christopher, however, allowed him an annuity of £2,000 during his life. He, who 
appears to have residfid chiefly in Brittany, in France, m.(^) Mary, da. of ( — ) 
KiEKE. She, who was b. about 1732 in Derby, d. s.p. 20 April 1789, aged 57, in 
the Place de la Liberie, at Dinan, in Brittany. He vi. subsequently, (c) in or 

(^) His being thus disinherited (whatever was its cause) was not from any 
question of his legitimacy. There is a deed executed by the 2d Baronet 
10 March 1769, in which he settles some estate on this son, William, by the 
description of his " only son and heir apparent," which description is again 
applied to him on a bond, dat. 20 May 1776, for raising £1,000. [See report of 
3 Oct. 1827, as in note (— ) below]. 

C") It is possible that besides the two wives mentiened in the text, he m., as a 
1st wife, " in July 1776, Mary, da. of the late Hon. William Ward," which lady 
is the only wife assigned to him in Playfair's Baronetage [1811]. 

(") On the legality of this last marriage the question of the legitimacy of 
the 4th Baronet depends. The only point that tells against this legitimacy seems 
to be a letter from the Baronet, in 1812, announcing his marriage and the birth 
of children to his cousin, Christopher Bethell-Codrington, the giver of the 
£2,000 annuity, in which he writes that as he '* had been married before the 
Church and not before the municipality, such marriage, not having been 
according to the laws of France, could not be looked upon as valid in England." 
This depreciation of the validity of his marriage was presumably made from 
fear of losing the [liberal] annuity assigned to him, if he offended one whom he 
probably had led to suppose would inherit the Baronetcy at his death. The 
validity of the marriage and the consequent legitimacy of the issue is, however, 
strongly supported, on the other hand, as below. There are attested copies 
(1) Of the death, 20 April 1789, at Dinan, of " Mary Kirke, aged 57, wife of 
William Codrington " j (2) Of a deposition that there was no issue of such 
marriage; (3) Of the registration at Rennes by William Codrington, then 
aged 69, of a male infant, born, 25 Jan. 1806, to him and Eleanor Kirke, his 
wife, which received the name of William Raimond ; (4) Of the death at 
Kennes, 13 Feb. 1816, of Dame Eleanor Kirke, aged 42^, native of London 
(da. of Godfrey Kirke and Marie Holland), wife of William Codrington, an 
English Baronet ; (5) The legitimacy of the said William Raimond Codrington 
was allowed at the Probate Court, and succession duty of one per cent, (not ten 
per cent, as in the case of a bastard) was paid. From enquiries made at Paris 
in 1827, it was ascertained that the marriage with a deceased wife's niece was 
valid there (as in England) if not set aside in the lifetime of the parties. [See 
report of C. G. Young, York Herald (afterwards "Garter"), and G. P. Beltz, 
Lancaster Herald, to the College of Arms, 27 Oct. 1827, previous to the entering 
of the pedigree there].

For above a century (1783-1895) this Baronetcy was con-

never assumed the title that had been granted to his father.

at Tingwall ; was living 13 July 1725, when he is styled " John Mitchell " 
[only] by his father in a deed of that date. He is said to be identical 
with John Charles Mitchell, of Great Tew, Oxon [1750-76], and after- 
wards of South Weston and Tetsworth, in that county, and consequently 
to be uncle and h. male of the last Baronet, and as such entitled to succeed

(a) In Playfair's Bajomeiage [1811] (not, however, in that of Betham [1803]), 
his only br. Andrew Mitchell is (presumably in error) said to have succeeded him 
as 4th Baronet. This Andrew, b. 30 Sep. and hap. 7 Oct. 1736, at Tingwall, was 
an Advocate in 1765, and d. unm. at Rome of a fever, in Dec. 1780, before his

(<^) According to a pedigree (privately printed 20 Nov. 1878), compiled by 
James William Mitchell, Rothesay Herald, in which his descent is shewn from 
the grantee, and his right, consequently, to the title of Baronet. In this pedigree 
the first three (actual) Baronets as also those entitled to that dignity (he himself 
being the ninth) are printed in black letter, but the prefix "Sir" and the 
designation "Baronet" is attributed to the first three, only.

(») The date of the grantee's death in 1756, aged 61, is stated in Court- 
hope's as also in Burke's Extinct Baronetage, and he certainly must be presumed 
to have been alive when his cousin Cyril Wyche, of Hockwood, Norfolk, furnished 
the information about the family to Wotton's Baronetage [1741], where, too, 
the death is recorded, in 1740, of his sou Magnus Wyche. [The account in 
Kimber's Baronetage, though dated as late as 1771, being merely an exact reprint of 
the above, may be passed over.] The death, however, is recorded in the Gent. 
Mag. of 1739 of " Sir Cecil Wyche, Bart., Minister to Circle of Lower Saxony, in 
Holstein," on 30 April 1739, which, presumably (though a very accurate descrip- 
tion of the grantee) is, as to the date, an error. 

(•>) The name of Cyril was first given to the grantee's great uncle. Sir Cyril 
Wyche, sometime (1693-95) one of the Lords Justices (Chief Governors) of Ireland, 
who was b. at Constantinople (where his father. Sir Peter Wyche, was Ambassador) 
about 1635, his godfather being " Cyril," the well-known Patriarch of that city.

issue. His widow d. 11 Dec. 1723.

F.R.S. ; was also an amateur architect, and incurred very great expenses in

were represented (by deputy) as doing homage to the King of England. 
Churchill in his poem of The Ghost, erroneously assigns to him the wrong 
Duchy — 

" Till how he did a Dukedom gain. 
And Robinson was AquiTAiN." 
(i>) He had, 1725-30, rebuilt the mansion there; enclosed the park with a stone 
wall, planted many forest trees, and built the great bridge, which there spans the 
Tees. " He practically made the Roheby, of which Sir Walter Scott wrote, and 
which the tourist visits." [Diet. Nat. Biogr.]. 

(>:) He was "a specious empty man," with a great talent for flattery, and for 
forcing his acquaintance on every great man. (See N. 8c Q., 1st S., x, 164 and 
294). He was unusually tall and thin, being generally known as "Long Sir 
Thomas," in allusion to which nickname and to his lack of humour Lord 
Chesterfield wrote — 

" Unlike to Robinson shall be my song, 
It shall be witty — it shall not be Long."

said son's father-in-law of defrauding him of a lead mine discovered on his [late] 
wife's property, and yielding an average of £22,000 a year. This mine is said in 
the course of twenty years to have yielded at least £360,000. Her fortune 
at marriage was but £350 in cash and £30 a year in land on Halkin mountain.

was Mr. Edward Turner, of Ambrosden, whose patent, dated 24 Aug. 1783 [sic, but

corresponds very approximately to the patents in Latin, which succeeded the 
earliest patents of King James I." [F. W. Pixley's History of the Baronetage 
(p.32), published by Duckworth and Co., London, 1900]. It is to be observed, 
however, that the creation of Sir William Heathcote, on 16 Aug. 1733 (which is

('') He applied for a special license for marriage, 25 April 1771 [the date of 
9 Feb. 1771 is erased] making oath that he was above 40 and a Bachelor 
and that " Maria Keeling" was above 30 and a Spinster, both being of Boxton, 
near Tempsford, Beds. There is, however, " no evidence of the marriage having 
taken plaice" [note to a MS. pedigree of this family in Bulman's Collections, 
" J.P. 81, fo. 405," in the College of Arms]. The date of 1754 is assigned to this 
marriage in Playfair's Baronetage [1811] and that of 1761 in more modern 
Baronetages [e.jr., that of Burke in 1841], this last date being apparently assumed 
from the Chancery decree in which Peter Payne (born Feb. 1762) was said to 
have been the first legitimate child. 

{") In the Annual Beg. for 1771, under the date of " 16 Oct. 1771," the death 
is recorded of " Sir Giles Payne, Knt.," as having occurred " lately at St. Kitts." 
This is presumably a mistake for Sir Gillies Payne, Baronet, whose death, however, 
did not occur till " 31 Jan. 1801, aged 80," as is recorded in the vol. of that work 
for the year 1801.

as " natural son."('') He was declared, by a finding, 7 June 1828, of one of 
the Masters of the Court of Chancery, to be the eldest son bom in wedlock 
of his father (whose marriage is therein stated to have been " about 
1761 "), and, accordingly, assumed the Baronetcy ; this finding, however, 
was reversed a few months later, in Jan. 1829, and the question of his 
legitimacy, as also of that of John, his elder brother, was directed to be 
tried, though such trial never took place. He was M.P. for Beds (in the 
Whig interest), 1831-32. He m. in 1789, Elizabeth Sarah, only da. of

(") According to the assumption of that dignity in and after 1801. 

Q>) It appears that the certificate of his baptiswi was produced before the 
Masler in Chancery who gave the decree in 1828 as to his legitimacy, and that 
the statement therein that he was a " natural son " was got over by the ludicrous 
argument that the marriage of the child's parents had been so private as to be 
unknown to the minister of his parish, who, being accustomed to enter all the 
children of Sir Gillies Payne as bastards, entered, in error, this one alao as such, 
without any question to the parents or any supervision on their part. Five suSh 
children (1757-61) had been previously entered as " natural."

(^) In Betham's Baronetage (1805) stated to be in 1779, but in Playfair's

(*=) The series of letters during forty-five years (1741-86) between himself and 
Horace "Wa,lpole (who had paid him a visit at Florence 1740-41) is well known, 
more especially those of Walpole — but those of Mann give, perhaps, the best 
account of the last days of Prince Charles Edward Stuart, who after 1775 
resided at Florence.

Citizen and Grocer of London, and a considerable merchant in that city; Alderman

1753-54 ; Knighted, at Kensington, 8 June 1759, on the occasion of the coming of 
age of George, Prince of Wales ; was Lord Mayor, 1760-61, and was cr. a Baronet, 
as above, 22 April 1763. He was Col. of the Green Regt. of the London Militia. 
He m. firstly ( — ), da. of Rev. Charles Hall, of Halsay, co. York.(e) He m. 
secondly, Mrs. Mary Blew, of Chelsea, Midx. She d. s.p. 8 and was hur. 13 Jan.

London), 8 April 1760, at St. James', Westm., Aunabella, da. of Thomas Batley, 
of Hampton Court, Midx., and of Coventry, by Bridget, da. of Sir Wolston Dixie,

1776, Hugh Cane, Lieut-Col. 5th Dragoon Guards. She d. at Winterton, Berks, 
9 June, 1783. 

C) The title and property, worth £30,000 a year, were, however, claimed a few 
years after the death of the 4th Baronet by a clever impostor, styling himself 
" Sir Richard Htigh Smyth, Baronet," and claiming to be s. and h. of Sir Hugh 
Smyth, the 3d Baronet, by Jane Vandenbergh, who was m. 19 May 1796, and who 
d. in giving him birth, 2 Feb. 1797, at Warminster, Wilts. His real name, 
however, proved to be John Provis, son of a carpenter at Warminster. On the 
death of the 3d Baronet in 1824, his alleged father, he claimed to have had the 
right to succeed him. His evidence, supported by an intricate series of perjuries 
and forged documents, was found false, Aug. 1853, when he was sentenced, at 
the Gloucester Assizes, to twenty years' transportation. He apparently derived 
much knowledge of the Smyth family by having m. in 1814 one of the domestic 
servants at Ashton Court. [See Animal Reg. for 1853, pp. 308-330, for an 
elaborate account of this celebrated trial, entitled " Smyth v, Smyth and others."] 

('') The estates devolved on Florence, the elder of his two sisters and coheirs. 
She was b. 27 May 1769; m. (as his 2d wife), 11 May 1799, John Upton, of 
Ingmire Hall, co. York (d. 3 Jan. 1832), took the name of Smyth in 1849, 
and d. 15 July 1852, aged 83, being sue. by her grandson, John Henry Greville 
Upton, who accordingly took the name of Smyth in 1852, and was cr. a Baronet 
(as of Long Ashton, Somerset), 25 April 1859, a dignity which became extinct on 
his death, 27 Sep. 1901. 

(") See p. 125, note " a," under " Lloyd." 

C) His election was petitioned against, on the ground of his being disqualified by 
not residing in the city, but was confirmed. 

(<>) By her he is said to have had a son, Charles George Blakiston, who d. unm. 
and v.p., in 1758. It is possible that the burial of " Margaret Blaokston, woman," 
19 Aug. 1725, at St. Martiu's-in-the-Fields (where his 2d wife and he himself was 
buried), may refer to this wife.

(») According to " P. G. H. Price " [N. ^ Q., 5th S., iv, 397], " in 1762, there 
was a Banking firm in London styled Sir George Amyand, Staples and Mercer, 
carrying on business in Comhill, near to Graoechurch street. In 1776, this firm 
became Staples, Baron Dimsdale & Co., 50 Comhill, which now [1875] flourishes 
under the style of Dimsdale & Co." Either the date " 1762 " or the " Sir " is 
apparently, incorrect, for the Baronetcy dates from 1764, and no previous Knight- 
hood was apparently conferred. In Price's London Bankers (p. 52) the firm in 
1762 is described as " Messrs. Amyand, Staples and Mercer."

Jamaica, 1752-58 ; Vice-Admiral of the Blue, 1755, and Admiral thereof 1760,

President of the Admiralty, and resided for five or six years at St. Petersbnrgh. 
He was of Level Hill, near Windsor, Berks. He m. firstly, 22 Dec. 1740, Mary, 
sister of Sir John Gay Alleyne, 1st Baronet [1769], da. of John Alleyne, of

registers, etc., relating to this family. 

(*>) Wraxall in his Historical Memoirs [vol. i, pp. 265-266], says that " he spoke 
with great good sense though not with brilliancy," but that " from some unfortu- 
nate circumstances in his private life, never could obtain a patient or a candid 
hearing in Parliament." In 1780 he, " like Wilkes, refused to concur in the vote 
of thanks to Lord Comwallis," on the ground of its giving approbation to the 
American War. In 1784, however, he had joined the party of Pitt. He is thus 
spoken off in The Bolliad in the lines which commiserate the trials of the Speaker 
(Charles Wolfran Cornewall). 

" There Cornewall sits, and ah ! compelled by fate, 
Must sit for ever, through the long debate, 
Painful pre-eminence ! he hears, 'tis true, 
Fox, North and Burke — but hears Sir Joseph too." 
(o) He was author of several poems and treatises, and a contributor to the 
Oent. Mag. and other periodicals.

sex, 20 Jan. 1888, who kindly sent a copy thereof to the compiler. of this work. 

(<=) See p. 137, note " c," under " Cornish." 

(d) " Charles Godfrey Wolff, a Baron of the Holy Roman Empire,'' was cr. 
D.C.L. by the University of Oxford, 9 July 1793. This was apparently a brother 
of the 1st Baronet, who, like him, had, possibly, been cr. a Baron of the Holy 
Roman Empire. See Playfair's Baronetage [1811], but the account there seems 
inaccurate. That Baron (though of the same name) most certainly could not be 
the " Charles Godfrey Wolff, born at Narva in 1701, and died in 1783, aged 
83," who was father of the 1st Baronet.

(*) Lipscomb's BucTcs, vol. ii, 324. 

(") The cause of his leaving is thus "painfully adverted" to in some verses he 
sent from " Tobago, Oct. 1814," to Sir George Lee, 6th Baronet [1660], from 
whom he had rented Hartwell House : — 

" When sudden, on one hapless day, 
A calamity happened so grievous, that yet 
T'were painful to write, tho' I can not forget. 
What from Hartwell then forced me away." 

('') This Charles is said to have been s. of Capt. Thomas Lawrence, R.N., 
Governor of Greenwich (b. 1680), Betham's Baronetage [1803], and "great 
grand-nephew of Henry Lawrence, the Lord President of Cromwell's Council in 
1653." [Burke's Baronetage, 1905]. 

(°) The date of his death is often given as " 10 Jan. 1811," but it is clear that 
he was alive iu Oct. 1814 (see note """ above), and his death " 10 Jan. 1815, 
aged 66," is recorded in the Annual Beg. of that year.

subjecting him to ceaseless tortures, eveutually«brought him to hia end," and 
for the last sixteen years of his life rendered him unable to lie down in bed. It is 
conjectured, in the Diet. Nat. Biog., that this pain may have " rendered him 
irritable, and led to his quarrel with Keppel." In that work, however, there is 
no mention of this "desperate action." The wounds, whether received during 
action or not, were, however, undoubtedly caused by the explosion of an arm-chest.

Fellow Commoner of Trinity College, Dublin, (2) Richard Coote, then aged 16, 
and (3) Thomas Coote, then aged 12, successively. The descendants of this 
Charles Coote, who was of Bellamont Forest, co. Cavan (being Sheriff of that 
county 1807), became extinct on the death s.p. of his last surviving son, Major- 
General Charles George Henry Coote, of Carrickacromin, co. Cavan, who was 
Sheriff (as above) 1880. 

(c) So styled in the Earl's will, dated 9 June 1800. 

('') Charles Coote (styled in the notS to the Graduati Gantab. as " Baronettus ") 
was M.A. (Triu. Coll.), Cambridge, 1811. Probably, however, the person 
thus indicated was Sir Charles Henry Coote, the 9th Baronet [I. 1621], who was 
b. Jan. 1792, and sue. to the Baronetcy in March 1802. 

(') " The Earl in his will [9 June 1800] says of his natural da. Jane [who m. 
Ralph Dawson, of Tanna, co. Monaghan] that hers was the only marriage of my 
natural children as to which I was consulted or my approbation sought or obtained. 
So, possibly, the [future] Baronet's marriage was distasteful to his father, and 
hence the estates were not left to him. These Baronets never had any land "

for Warren and Boyd is 31 May, and for Leith and Etherington, 11 Nov. 1775. 

(^) In the able account of him in the Diet. Nat. Biogr., some curious mistakes 
occur. He is called " 4th " son, and it is stated that " as a lad, young Warren 
was intended for the church," and that " the death of his elder brother changing 
his prospects, changed also his views, and on 24 April 1771 he was entered on 
the books of the Marlborough guardship in the Medway as an able seaman. 
From this time his residence at Cambridge was curiously intermittent." He, 
however, never had an elder brother, being born but ten months after the 
marriage (14 Nov. 1752, at Risley, co. Derby), of his parents, and inasmuch as, at 
the age of 9, he, by his father's death, came into considerable estates and a large 
fortune, he is not likely to have contemplated taking holy orders, indeed in 
early life he was considered a great "buck" or "dandy," and his predilections 
were nautical. Also, his mother's name was Bridget (not "Anne"), and it 
was his great grandfather (not his grandfather), who by marriage with Anne 
(not " Alice") Borlase, brought the estates of Little Marlow and Medmenham, 
Bucks, and of Stratton Audley, Oxon, into the family, she being j'st. sister and 
coheir (not "Only da. and heiress") of Sir John Borlase, the 2d and last 
Baronet [1642].

C") Playfair's Baronetage [1811], where the descent is deduced from the family 
of Tailzour, " originally of Norman extraction, who settled in Scotland early in 
the fourteenth century," though [oddly enough] " the first we find on record is 
Robert Tailzour, of Tailzourtown, who married Mary, da. of Sir Alexander 
Strachan, Baronet " .' and therefore could not have lived before the seventeenth 
century, when that dignity was first created. There is, however, no mention in 
this pedigree of that celebrated " Knyghte who wedded the Taylzeour's daughter " 
(commemorated in the Boole of Ballads by Bon Gaultier) whose armorial ensigns 
(borne presumably in right of his alliance with that illustrious race) were : — 
"A goose, regardant, proper 
Hissing on an azure shield."

22 Dec. [not Jan.] 1784 and to have become extinct on the death, s.p., of Edward, 
the 2d Baronet, " circa 1823, set. circa 55." In the chronological list of creations, 
however, in that work the creation of " Smith, now Dodsworth, of Newland Park, 
York," is [rightly] given as on " 22 Jan. 1784 " (between the creations of Rycroft 
and Lorabe), but is followed (strange to say) after seven others by the creation 
on " 22 Bee. 1784 " of " Smyth, of Newland Park, York," this last creation being 
printed in type that denotes it to be then [1835] extinct. This duplicate creation 
in Bee. 1784 as also its [supposed] extinction, "circa 1823," seem palpable errors.
