ADVERTISEMENT. 

The long established reputation of Debrett's Baronetage, and the 
extensive patronage it has been uniformly honoured with, render it unne- 
cessary for the Proprietors, in offering the present Edition to the Public, to 
say more than that the Editor, under whose superintendence the last Edition 
of the Peerage was published, has taken equal pains as with that Work, and 
spared neither time nor trouble in the endeavour to render the present 
Edition as accurate as far as the nature of a Work involving so many 
dates, and to be obtained from such a variety of sources, would permit ; 
amongst other improvements, the correct dates of the patents have been 
uniformly ascertained, and the Baronets placed in strict order of precedency. 

The Proprietors have to return their grateful thanks to those Baronets 
(too numerous to be individually mentioned) who were kind enough to 
honour their circular letter of enquiries with an answer. They most re- 
spectfully entreat a continuance of similar favours, for, though industry and 
application may collect the history of past generations from other sources, 
the present state of families can be furnished only by the existing members 
of the families themselves. 

On the subject of Communications, the Editor sohcits most earnestly, 
and wiU receive with the utmost thankfulness, any information (authenti- 
cated by a signature) relative to the present state of the families which form 
the subject of this work ; correct dates of births, marriages, and deaths ; 
and, more especially, the Christian names of children. Where a communi- 
cation may refer to the origin or earlier genealogy of a family, he will give 
it his best attention ; but he must be allowed to compare it with such other 
authorities on the same subject as he has access to, and finally to exercise his 
own discretion as to using it or not. 

*»* Address to the Editor, under cover to Messrs. Rivington, Waterloo 
Place, or St. Paul's Church Yard ; or to any other of the Publishers.

PREFACE, 



The title of Baronet is an hereditary dignity, intermediate in rank between 
the Peerage and Knighthood. The Order was founded by King James the 
First in 1611, and owes its origin to the laudable anxiety of that monarch 
for the settlement and civilization of Ireland. That country, during nearly 
the whole reign of his predecessor, had been desolated by wars of the most 
remorseless description ; the rebels, or native Irish, were at length com- 
pletely subdued by Elizabeth, but so late in her reign that the task of civiliz- 
ing the people she had conquered, of reconciling them to laws and industry, 
of rendering their obedience durable, and their subjection useful to the 
crown of England, devolved entirely on her successor. In this work, ac- 
cording to Hume, King James proceeded by so steady, regular, and well 
connected a plan, that in the short space of nine years he made more ad- 
vances towards the reformation of that kingdom than had been made in the 
four hundred and forty years which had elapsed since the conquest of it was 
first attempted. 

The province of Ulster had been particularly depopulated during the 
wars, and its whole proprietorship vested in the crown by the attainder and 
forfeiture of the rebels : for its settlement, English adventurers were en- 
couraged to go over, grants of land were made to them, and to any English- 
man who would undertake to maintain thirty soldiers there for three years, 
at the rate of 8d. per day, and to remit the first year's pay into the English 
Treasury, the degree of BARONET was held out as an honorary reward, 
with a solemn undertaking on the part of the Sovereign that neither he nor 
his successors would at any time in future institute a degree of hereditary 
dignity that should intervene between the Baronets and the Peerage of the 
realm. To mark more strongly the object of this Institution, every Baronet 
was authorized to add in a canton or escocheon on the armorial bearings of 
his family the arms of the province of Ulster, being " a sinister hand, couped 
at the Avrist gules," or, as it has since been more familiarly termed, the 
bloody hand. 

At the first institution of the Order, its numbers were limited to 200 ; 
and its members carefully selected from the most wealthy and distinguished 
famiUes of landed gentry. In subsequent periods, although landed pro- 
perty and interest has always been much regarded in these promotions, 
many other considerations, arising out of the circumstances of the times 
and the progress of society, have been allowed to direct the royal favour. 
In the reign of the first Charles it was at once the stimulus and reward of 
devoted loyalty ; by his son, it was often bestowed as an honorary recom- 
pense for suflferings and attachment, on which he was unable or unwilling 
to confer more solid remuneration. As the commerce of our country in- 
creased, the wealthy and distinguished JMerchant learned to look forward to 
it as the well earned meed of long continued and successful industry. In 
the latter, we have seen it associated with all that was eminent in science, 
respectable in wealth, or distinguished in public service, whether civil or 
military ; the man who scorning, even in youth, the allurements of riches, 
braved the dangers of every clime in the pursuit of science, and dedicated 
his whole after-life to its promotion ; the profound and upright dispenser of 
the Laws ; the Physician who arrested the progress, or soothed the pains

PREFACE. 



of disease ; the Philosopher who subjected to chains the element of fire ; 
and the Poet whose genius has shed a lustre on the literature of his times, 
will be found, associated with the Heroes of the Nile, of Trafalgar, and of 
Waterloo, and with the statesmen whose exertions at home sustained and 
directed the efforts of the warrior, and supplied the means of victory, in the 
list of Baronets created by his late Majesty, and his Royal Father. 

The rank and precedence of Baronets is immediately after the younger 
sons of Barons, and before all Knights, whether of the Orders or Knights 
Bachelors, except Knights of the Garter and Knights Bannerets created in 
open war under the Royal Banner displayed, the King himself, or the 
Prince of M^ales being present. Commoners, however, who are of His 
Majesty's Privy Council, the Chancellors of the Exchequer, and of the 
Duchy of Lancaster, the Judges, the Master of the Rolls, and the Vice- 
Chancellor take precedence of Baronets. 

The eldest son of a Baronet, until 19 Dec. 1827, might, on coming of 
age, claim the honour of Knighthood, by virtue of a clause in the Patent 
of Creation, inserted therein in pursuance of a provision of letters patent, 
granting, amongst other things, that privilege, which King James issued 
about a twelvemonth after the foundation of the Order. His late Ma- 
jesty, however, was pleased, by letters patent of the above-mentioned date, 
to revoke and annul those of King James so far as the said privilege is con- 
cerned, and to declare that in future no svich covenant should be inserted.

This family is said to be descended from 
Grimbald, who came into England with his 
kinsman William, earl Warren, at the 
Norman invasion, and settled at Lethering- 
set, near Holt, in Norfolk. His great- 
grandson, Robert, took the name of Bavon. 

The above-named Robert had a brother, 
sir William, of Monks-Bradfield, in Suffolk ; 
from whom descended, in the 10th genera- 
tion, 

Sir Nicholas Bacon, who filled the 
office of lord-keeper of the great seal to 
queen Elizabeth, and d. 20 Feb. 1579, hav- 
ing m. 1st, Jane Fermley, and 2dly, Anne, 
one of the 6 das. of sir Anthony Cook, of 
Giddy Hall, co. Essex, one of the tutors of 
kmg Edward VI. By his 2d wife he had 2 
sons, the younger of whom was that great 
luminary of modern science, sir Francis 
Bavon. He was h. 22 Jan. 155(1-1, was of 
Trinity College, Cambridge, and afterwards 
of Gray's Inn; appointed counsel-extraor- 
dinary to the queen, 1588, solicitor-general 
to king James I. IC07, attorney-general, 
1G13, a privy-counsellor, IGKi, lord keeper, 
March l(il(i-17, and lord chancellor l(il8 ; 
created baron Veritlam in the same year, 
and viscount St. Albau's, 2(1 Jan. 162(»-1 ; 
liut being shortly afterwards accused of cor- 
rupt practices, and confessing in a great 
measure his guilt, he was sentenced, on the 
3d of May 1021, to be fined £40,000. and to 
be imprisoned in the Tower during his ma- 
jesty's pleasure ; was rendered incapable of 
holding any office, sitting in parliament, or 
coming within the verge of the court. After 
a short imprisonment his fine was remitted, 
and it is probable the whole of his sentence 
was cancelled, as he was again summoned to 
parliament in the first year of Charles I. 
He d. 9 April 162G, having by his labours in 
retirement, during the latter part of his 



life, made a brilliant atonement for his 
errors. He w. Anne Barnham, da. of an al-

This family came into England with the 
Conqueror, and settled at Musgrave, in 
Westmoreland. — The first of the name on 
record was Peter Mwgrave, who lived about 
the time of king Stephen, from whom the 
18th in descent was 

I. RICHARD MUSGRAVE, the 1st 
bart., who represented co. Westmoreland in 
parliament, 1 Jac. I., and at the coronation 
of that king was made K. B. He /«. Frances,

his successor, and deceasing at Naples in 
1615, was succeeded by his only son, 

II. Sir Philip, aged then seven years. 
He was one of the knts. of the shire for 
Westmoreland in 1640; but in April 1642, 
he withdrew from the house of commons, 
and returned to it no more till after the 
Restoration. In 1(;44, he was made com- 
mander-in-chief of Cumberland and West- 
moreland, by a commission from the Mar- 
quess of Newcastle. He asserted the royal 
cause with all courage and dutiful allegiance, 
and was made governor of Carlisle. To the 
marquess at York, he sent first 600 soldiers, 
then 1800, and afterwards to prince Rvipert 
1000 more, whom he raised in the cos. of 
Cumberland and Westmoreland. After the 
battle at Marston Moor, he, with sir Tho- 
mas Glenham, retired to Carlisle ; upon 
the surrender of which garrison (the last 
that yielded to the parliament) he attended 
the king at Cardiff. At the desire of some 
loyal gentlemen, a new regt. of foot being 



raised in Cumberland, he was appointed 
col. of it. Sir Philip was taken prisoner at 
Rowton Moor in 1645, after which he took 
Carlisle by surprise, and was a 2d time 
appointed governor. After the battle of 
Worcester, sir Philip attended on king 
Charles II. in France, Holland, and Scot- 
land, from whence he retired to the Isle of 
Man, which he bravely defended under the 
countess of Derby, until it was reduced to 
the last extremity; and then, that lady 
having surrendered upon honourable terms, 
he had leave to retire to any part of England. 
At the restoration of Charles II. 1660, he 
was a 3d time made governor of Carlisle. 
He had a warrant for creating him baron 
Musgrave, of Hartley Castle, but never 
took out the patent. He m. Julian, youngest 
da. of sir Richard Hutton, knt., judge of

that a favourite white buck had been killed 
in his park by king Edward IV., he, in his 
first passion, wished the buck's horns in the 
belly of hi.n who had moved the king to do 
80 — he had already made himself obnoxious 
by his attachment to the duke of Clarence, 
and advantage was taken of these words (as 
imagining the death of the king) to arraign 
and convict him of high treason. His son, 

Sir John, was restored in blood on the 
accession of Henry VH., and was seated at 
Bramcote. He was father of Robkrt, fa- 
ther of Thomas, father of another Robert,

form the canon laws, and was one of the

* This is the account given by Collins 
and all succeeding authors on the subject. 
In a MS. collection of baronets' pedigrees 
made by Peter Le Neve, Norroy king of 
armsabout 1700, and very frequently quoted 
by Collins, it is stated that sir John, here 
called 2d bart., was the person originally 
created, with remainder to his nephews; 
that his sen, John, here called 3d bart.. 



died during his father's lifetime; and that 
on the death of Sir John, ist bart., he was 
succeeded by a John, eldest son of his bro- 
ther, William, and that John, in l(i92, by 
his brother, William, the same who is in the 
text called 4th baronet. The patent which 
was granted at Oxford is not enrolled, or 
the Editor would have been enabled to clear 
up the point.

Sir Richard SJiuckburgh, knt., father to

wick in parliament, 1641. Dugdale, in his 
History of Warwickshire, relates of him 
that, as king Charles I. marched to Edgcott, 
near Banbury, on 22 Oct. 1642, he saw him 
hunting in the fields ; upon which he fetched 
a deep sigh, and asked. Who that gentleman 
was that hunted so merrily that morning 
when he wns going to fight for his crown 
and dignity ? and being told it was sir Rich- 
ard Shuckburi^h, he was ordered to be called 
to him and was very graciously received; 
upon which he went immediately home, 
armed all Iiis tenants, and the next day at- 
tended on him in the field, where he was 
knighted, and v/as present at the battle of 
Edgehill. After his majesty's retreat from 
those parts, he went to his own scat and for- 
tified himself on the top of Sliuckburgh 
Hill, where, being attacked by some of the 
parliament forces, he defended himself till 
he fell, with most of his tenants about him ; 
but being taken up, and life perceived in 
him, he was carried away prisoner, first to

worth Castle, where he lay a considerable

WooTTOv, in his Baronetage, 1727, says, 
there is a tradition that this ancient family 
is descended from Wolstan, earl of Ellenden, 
(now called Wilton,) who m. the sister of 
Egbert, the first English monarch. An- 
otner asserts, upon a relation of sir Walter 
Littleton, chancellor of Lichfield, that one 

of the Dixies m. the da. and h. of Wohtari, 

of Wolstan, co. Warwick, about 7"" years 
since; and in confirmation of the same, a 
piece of alabaster was, manv years ago, 
found under a pillar in Wolvey church, 
near Wolstan, with this inscription in old 
characters, viz., Wolstan DLrie, in the year of 
our Lord IKM). But Dugdale, in his " War- 
wickshire," intimates, that Wohian was so 
called (quasi Wulfricston) from some Saxon 
possessor named W^ulfric. The first men- 
tioned in the Herald's visitations is 

Wolstan DLrie, who was seated at Catworth, 
CO. Huntingdon, about the reign of Edward 
IIL

the rebellion, 1(J41, appeared early in the de- 
fence of the king, and was a great sufferer

majesty, sir Wolstan gave himself towards 
that Slim, £ 183o ; for which signal service 
he had a warrant for a baronet's patent; 
but through the confusion of the times, it 
was not taken out till after the Restoration.

This ancient family, to use the words of 
sir Peter Leycester, " is descended from 
the Brookes of Leighton, co. Chester, of 
which family I find one Adam, Dominus 
deLeighton, sub Henrico tertio, whose son 
was styled William dela Brooke, of Leighton, 
(probably the fVilliam noticed by Camden, 
as master of Leighton in 1249,) and his son, 
Richard, styled Rieardus de Doito, in an old 
deed, 127'>, that is of the i?K>o/t, for doet in 
French is a brook in English; and under 
the said manor-house of Leighton a brook 
runneth, from whence their posterity as- 
sumed the surname of Del Brook. Thomas 
Brook, of Leighton, the last of that family 
in the direct line, d. about 1(J52, very aged, 
having issue 4 das. ; but he sold away the 
reversion of his lands to the lady Mary

chasing and disposing of lands, styled lords 
of Nunwell, It is plain, from the most

taken.

CROFT, of Croft Castle, co. Hereford. 

18 Nov. 1671. 

Sir THOMAS-ELMSLEY CROFT, Baronet, F.S.A., bor7i 2 Sept. 
1798, succeeded his father, sir Richard, 13 Feb. 1818; married., 9 Sept. 
1824, Sophia- Jane-Lateward, only child of Richard-Lateward Lateward, 
esq., of Grove House, Ealing, Middlesex, and has, Grace, b. 3 June 182G. 



It has been remarked that this family 
" presents one of the very few instances in 
which property has descended from father 
to son for more than seven hundred years", 
and that "in almost every generation, from 
the commencement of the 14th century, re- 
cords exist of the public services of its re- 
presentatives." 

The name is undoubtedly Saxon ; and in 
Doomsday Book, Bernard de Croft is stated 
to have held the tenement of Croft in Here- 
fordshire, which continued in the possession 
of his descendants until the last century. In 
1274, Roger de Croft was sub-escheator for 
that county. Sir Hugh de Croft, lord of 
Croft, was created a knight of the Bath, 33 
Edw. I. ; was M.P. for the county of Here- 
ford 1315; and in a contemporary roll of 
arms he is said to have used the same bear- 
ings as have been borne by his descendants, 
but his ancestors bore that coat withovit the 
lion. 

His son, Hugh, was a justice of assize 
1338, and was succeeded by his son, sir John 
de Croft, who was frequently employed in 
negotiations in Flanders, between 1402, 
when he was captain of Merk Castle, near 
Calais, and 1404. By Janet, 3d da. and co- 
h. of the renowned Owen Glendower, he 
had issue William, whose son, sir Richard, 
was one of the most distinguished soldiers 
of his times, and a zealous partisan of the 
House of York. At the battle of Tewkes- 
bury he took the Prince of Wales prisoner, 
and"having brought him before Edward-, the 
young prince was barbarously murdered, 
though without sir Richard's participation 
in the deed. He was sheriff co. Hereford in 
tlie IKlh, and knight of the shire for that 
county in the 17th Edw. IV. In 1 Hen. 



VII. he was treasurer of the king's house- 
hold ; and at the battle of Stoke, 1487, was 
created a knight banneret : at the death of 
Prince Arthur, 1502, sir Richard was steward 
of his household; and d. very aged in 1509. 

His son, sir Edward, was several times 
sheriff of Herefordshire ; and was one of 
the counsel to the princess Mary; he d. 
1547, and was succeeded by his son, Richard, 
the father of sir James Croft, whose name 
so frequently occurs in the history of the 
reigns of Edward VI., Mary, and Elizabeth, 
as governor of Haddington, and lord de- 
puty of Ireland, 1551 ; deputy constable of 
the Tower, 1.552; governor of Berwick, 
1559; comptroller of the household, and 
privy counsellor, 1570 ; knight of the shire 
CO. Hereford 5th, 13th, 28th, 29th, 30th, and 
35th Eliz., and a commissioner to treat with 
the agents of the king of Spain at Bour- 
bourg in 1588. Sir James d. 1591. Ed- 
ward, his son, was M.P. for Leominster, 
1571 and 1586, d. 1601, leaving a son, sir 
Herbert, M.P. co. Hereford, tewp. Eliz. and 
Jas. I., who had four sons, of whom sir 
William, sir James, and Robert were colo- 
nels in the service of Charles I., and were 
conspicuous for their eminent loyalty. The 
two first mentioned d. s.p. ; Herbert, the 3d 
son, and eventually h. of sir Herbert, b. 
1608, having entered into holy orders, be- 
came celebrated as a divine and a scholar : 
he Was appointed bishop of Hereford 1662, 
and d. 1692. His only child, 

I. Sir HEBERT, 1st bart., was so created 
18th Nov. 1671, >n. Elizabeth, da. of Thomas 
Archer, of Umbersdale, co. Warwick, esq.,

the surname and arms of Johnson in addition, by royal sign manual, 
succeeded his father, sir John, 23 Aug. 1812. 



181] 



This family was resident co. Durham for 
several generations prior to the close of the 
14th century ; and there is no reason to 
doubt that the name is local, and derived 
either from CaMle Eden, or Little Eden, in 
the same county. We are unable to trace 
the family to an earlier period than 1413, 
when, by an inquisition of Thomas Lang- 
ley, bishop of Durham, it appears that 
Robert de Eden died possessed of 3 mes- 
suages and 10 ox-gangs of land, with their 
appurtenances, in Preston-on-Tees, held of 
the bishop in capite, by knight's service. 
He was succeeded by hisson WiUiam, who 
d. seised of the same estate, 1475 ; his son 
and heir was Thomas Eden, father of John, 
of Belsis, CO. Durham, esq., »i. Elizabeth, 
da. and co-h. of Perceval Lambton, of Dur- 
ham, esq., by whom he had Robert Eden, of 
West Auckland, and of Windleston, esq., 
where the family appear to have been resi- 
dent from the commencement of the reign 
of queen Elizabeth. He was living in 1575, 
and m. Jane, da. and co-h. of John Hutton, 
of Hinmch, co. Durham, by whom he had

he commanded at St. Lucia, and in the me- 
morable action with the Dutch on the Dog- 
ger Bank, 5 Aug. 1781. The impression 



made on the public mind from this hard- 
fought battle was such as to induce the king, 
attended by the prince of Wales, to pay the 
admiral a visit at the Nore. In the follow- 
ing year the vice-admiral was appointed 
commander-in-chief of his majesty's fleet in 
the East Indies : he left England in the 
Cato, in Sept., and having wooded and

be added to, or altered.
