The origin of the illuHtrious family of Hamilton haa been

^ !■■ IfilHtimde BiHaeIdoa,(ao samamed from tim place oC hit

to have heen a yoiitiger wro of Rflhert do Belloinoni , 
of Leicester, and M'bai^faai) s Kon Gilbert, wlio, having killed 
JoiiD le De^iicer, a favmmte officer about the court of king 
Edward JL, fled fram the apprehended vengeance of that 
moDarch ; and being closely pimued into a n-ood, he and his 
Berrant changed clijthea with two woodcatlen, and, taking 
their saw. were cutting Ihrottgh an oak tree when their pur. 
■uera passed by. Perceiving hia servant take notice of them, 
he hastily cried out to hini, " THaoPen ;" which word, \ '-^ 
the oak and saw through it, lie look for his motta and ci 
in mtimory of Lis happy deliverance. This detail is, Lowe 
liable to sereml atijectiani. Neither DugSale, nor any other 
of the Ensliidi gen^logists, maJies mention of the descent of 
the Haniilt^ns from the earls of Leicester. Accarding to 
them, Rol>ert, 3d earl, had tliMe sons; Robert, 4th earl, 
who died without issue in 1304 ; Roger, bishop of Si. Ad. 
drew's, and chancellor of Scotland, who died in 1202; and 
William, a ]eper,founder of thehospitnl of St. Leonard at Leices. 
ter. That this William pre.deoeosDd his eldest brother with. 
out issue, is evident, from the drmnatance of the great inlierit- 
ance of the family being divided, on the death of the 4th earl, 
between bis siiten ; and it ia further proved by a deed of Pe. 
tronetla, widow of the 3d earl, that the surname of her son 
WiUiam was not Hamilton, but de Britolio. It is, therefore, 
clear that he was not the progenitor of the family of Han *' 
whose desceTit, if derived from the earls of Leiixster at i 
Indeitd the similarity of arms, and the concurring testimony of 
several authors, seems to render probable,) must have been from 
one of the younger sOna of the first or second earl. We there. 
fore comm^uce our account of the fanuly with 
L OiLBEit-r DE Hamelduh, whose name occurs In the 

H Charlulary of Paisley, 1272, and who was father of Walteb,

This title is the most ancient of any in Great Britain, 
having continued, without interruption, in the lineal course 
of descent, for near six centuries : while nearly all the other 
ancient titles have been changed in their destinations by re- 
signations and new patents, this earldom has remained unal# 
tered, and been transmitted through twenty generations, in the 
legal order of descent, to Elizabeth, the present possessor. 

William, 1st earl of Sutherland, was great-grandson of 
Freskin, a Fleming, who settled in Scotland during the reign 
of David I. His father, Hugh Freskin, had obtained the 
territory of Sutherland forfeited by the earl of Caithness, 
when he rebelled, 1197 ; and he was created an earl, by Alex- 
ander II., in reward of his assistance in crashiiig the rebellion

The origin of the royal house of Stewart is traced by the 
inde&tigable researches of Ohalmers to Alak Fitz-Fleald, 
a Norman oompanion of William the Conqueror. He had 3 
KBs; 1. fFi/Ztam, ancestor of the Fitz- Alans, earls of Arundel 
m Endand; 2. Walier, who settled in Scotland, and obtained 
from king David I. the office of lord high steward, from 
vhenoe his descendants adopted the name of Stewart ; 3. Simon, 
vho also settled in Scotland, and was progenitor of the family 
of Boyd. 

Alexander, high steward of Scotland, great-grandson of 
Walter, had 2 sons ; I.James, whose grandson, Robert, ascended 
the throne of Scotland 1371, and whose male line ended in the 
person of king James V., father of Mary queen of Scots; 2. sir 
Jbhn, of Bonkyll, who had 4 sons, who left issue, viz. : Alex- 
ander, ancestor of the earls of Angus, whose male line became 
«tinct 1377 ; Alan, ancestor of the house of Darnley, earls and 
dukes of Lennox, and of the kings of Scotland and England ; 




Walter, of -Oarlies, whose great-^and-daughter and heir m, 
the ancestor of the earl of Galloway ; James, ancestor of the ^^ 
earls of Atholl, Buchan, and Traquair, and the lords Lorn ^ 
and Innermeath. ^i 

This hranch of the house of Stewavt is descended from sir ^ 
- William Stewart, of Jedworth, who lived in the beginning of ^ 
the 15th century, and whose precise connexion with the royil ^ 
line has been the subject of much and warm controversy. On <« 
the part of the earl it is contended, that the above sir WiUiami ^ 
was second son of sir Alexander Stewart, of Damley, who was ti 
grandfather of the first Stewart, earl of Lennox ; and in that ^i 
■case, the whole male line of sir John Stewart, sir Alexander** ^ 
eldest son, having failed on the death of .cardinal York, in ^ 
1807, the earl of Oalloway must be the imdoubted male heir l( 
and representative of the Damley family. That sir WiUUun lb 
was of the house of Damley, is clear from the words of the k{ 
.patent creating his descendant earl of Galloway, wherein his ^ 
origin, ^^ ab antiqttd domo de Lennox derivata,*^ is ezpreiBljr ^' 
enumerated as one of the reasons of his elevation to Uie M 
.peerage. '\ 

Sir John Stewa&t, son of sir William, m. Marion, d|u ^ 
and heir of sir Walter Stewart, of Dalswinton, who was mm ^ 
of sir John Stewart, of Dalswinton, one of the hostages for ^ 
king David II., 1357) and grandson of sir Walter Stewut, (t^ 
of Garlies, 3d son of sir John Stewart of Bonkyll, above«inei^ i^ 
tioned. They had issue, i^ 

Sir William Stewart, of Dalswinton and Garlies, who ^, 
had 3 sons ; Alexander, his successor ; Thomas, of Minto, ^i 
ancestor of lord Blautyre ajid the earls of Londonderry ; aiwl i^ 
Walter, of Tonderghie. ^ 

Sir Alexander Stewart, eldest son, left an oplyim. vj

tied his title and estate on sir David Lindsay, of Edzell, great- 
fsrandson of AValter above mentioned, who consequently be- 
t-dme the 8th earl of Crawford ; but, notwithstanding he had 
several sons, and one of them ancestor of the earl of J3o/cor- 
ras, the generosity of his disposition induced him to make a

settlement of the honours and estate on the rightftil heir in 
blood, David^ grandson of the 7th earl, reserving to himself, 
during his life only, the title of earl of Crawford, and a com- 
petent provision out of the estate, to support him according 
to his rank. He expressly conditioned, that, in failure of the 
heirs male of the body of David^ above-mentioned, who, in 
virtue of that settlement, became 9th earl of Crawford, die 
honours and estate should revert to the descendants of his 
own body, as next heirs male. Liuhvick^ 14th earl of Craw« 
ford, having engaged on the side of king Charles L, in the 
civil wars, was taken prisoner, and condemned to be exeoated, 
by the parliament of Scotland ;^ by whom his title and estates 
were conveyed to John, earl of Xifuiffoy, lord high treasurer 
of Scotland, a remote branch of the family, which were de- 
scended from the principal stock, previous to their creation 
as earls of Crawford. The earl of Lindsay being doubtful of 
the validity of this grant by parliament, entered into a con* 
tract with the earl of Crawford, then in prison, under sen- 
tence of death, to whom he gave assurances of saving him 
from the hands of the executioner. By this transaction, 
Crawford agreed to resign his title in favour of Lindsay, re- 
servii^ that the resignation should not take effect in the 
event of his leaving issue male of his own body. On his 
death, without issue, the earl of Lindsay became, accordingly, 
15th earl of Crawford; and thus the succession was con- 
veyed away from the legitimate heirs male. The male line of 
his body failed in GeorgCy 20th earl of Crawford, who died 
withont issue, in 1808. 

Sir David Lindsay, of Balcarras (grandson of John 
Lindsay, 2d son of David, 8th earl of Crawford, above-named,) 
was served heir to John, his father, 19 May, 1601 : when 
Hing Charles I. visited Scotland, he was advanced to the dig- 
nity of the peerage, by the title of lord Lindsay^ of Balcarras, 
27 June, 1633 ; m, Sophia Setoh, da. of Alexander, 1st earl

Seotland from falling into the hands of Cromwell, during 
whose nsurpatiou they had been carried to Dtmmore caxtle, 
hsth as the earl Marischal, in virtue of his office, had a right 
to keep them, and it was thought a place of safety, Duunoter 
being besi^ed. Sir John Keith got the regalia safely nni- 
ve^ away, and deposited under ground, in the church of 
Kmneft. Sir John then sailed for France, where ho pretended 
Id have carried these valuable articles. On his return home, 
be wu apprehended and examined ; dedaring tliat he had 
ftsnrtjed ttiem to France, all further search for the regalia 
was dropped. He had a charter of the lands of (Hiskieben,

George, lOth carl Marischal, grandson of George, (elder bro- 
ther of the 1st earl of Kintore,) upon whose issue male the 
title was entailed by the charter of 1694 ; but the honours be- 
came dormant, as lord Marischal would not allow a clause, 
enabling him to inherit titles, to be inserted in the act of par- 
liament by which he was allowed to inherit estates. On the 
earl Mari^chal's death, 23 May, 1778, the titles and estates 
of Kintore devolved on Anthont-Adrian, 8th lord Fal- 

' coner, of Halkertoun, above-named, whose paternal descent

of George, 6th earl of Caithness, whose debts are said to have 
exceeded a million of marks, that earl, 8 Oct., 1672, made 
a disposition of his whole estate and earldom, with the heri- 
table jurisdictions and titles, to sir John Campbell^ of Glen- 
orchy, who took the whole of his lordship^s debts to himself: 
on which disposition, a charter passed, 11 Jan., 1673, investing 
sir John with the lands and earldom of Caithness, 27 Feb., 
1673. The eari of Caithness reserved his life-rent of the title, 
and an annuity for life of 12,000 marks to him and his coun- 
tess, and the survivor of them. The charter contained also a 
danse of redemption of the earldom within a limited period, 
and an obligatitm on sir John Campbell, and his issue, to 
iKume and use the name of Sindair, and arms of the house 
of Caithness, when he should be possessed of the earldom irre-

retain the title of earl of Caithness, corif erred upon him by

the authority of parliament, found that George Sinclair, 
of Keiss, the heir male of the last earl, had a right to the 
dignity of earl of Caithness, and he in consequence took place

Lord Haddo, b, 28 Sept., 1816 ; 2. Alexander, b, Dec 1817 ; 
Frances ; and 4. a son, b, March 1824. 

The origin of the illustrious house of Gordon will be found 
under the title of Duke of Gordon ; but it may be here ob- 
served, that the principal line terminated early in an heiress, 
who m. sir Alexander Seton, whose desicendants assumed the 
maternal name ; while the family represented by the earl of 
Aberdeen, has continued uninterruptedly in a male line of 
descent. A current tradition is, that his lordship derives his 
descent from the Bertrand de Goiirdon, who shot the fatal 
arrow at king Richard Coeur de Lion, and that the crest of 
the Aberdeen family, two arms, in the act of letting fly an 
arrow from a bow, and their motto, ^^fortuna seqtiatur," bear 
allusion to th% event. Crawfurd, on the other hand, in his 
lives of the officers of state, derives the earl from a sir William 
Gordon, a younger brother of the principal house living in the 
reign of king Edward I. of Enghmd. In consequence, how- 
ever, of the imperfect state of the Scotch records, and the 
destruction of the family papers during the civil wars, the 
exact descent of the Aberdeen family cannot be clearly ascer- 
tained higher than 

Patrick Gordon, of Methlic, slain at the battle of Ar- 
broath, 1445 : 'eighth in lineal descent from whom was

ate ancestor of the earl of Roseberry, however, was seated at 
Colniss, CO. Perth, in the reign of queen Mary. He was 
fH'andfather of James Primrose, who was bred to the law, and

of Nova Scotia devolved on James, 2d earl of Roseberry, as

JOHN HOPE, Earl of IIOPETOUN, Viscount Aithrie, 
Lord Hope, Baron Hopetoim, of Hopetoun, and Bahok 
NiDDBY, CO. Linlithgow; b. 15 Nov., 1803; succeeded his 
father, John, late Earl, 27 Aug., 1823. 

The surname of Hope is of great antiquity in Scotland. 
John de Hope swore fealty to king Edward I. when he over- 

s 2 ran 


• ran Scotland, 1296. Another John de Hope had a protection 
•from king Henry IV. of England, 1405. John de Hope^ the 
- immediate ancestor of this family, is said to have come from 

France, in the reign of Magdalen, queen of Jame» V.^ 1537 ; 
settling in Scotland, he m, Elizabeth Gumming^ by whom he 
had Edwaed, who was one of the most considerable inha- 
bitants of Edinburgh in the reign of queen Mary ; and being 
a great promoter of the reformation, was chosen one of the 
< commissioners for that metropolis to that parliament, 1560 : 
'he was father of Henry Hope, a considerable, merchant, 
who, having frequent occasion to visit the continent, m., in 
'one' of these excursions, a French lady, Jaqueline de Tott, 

• and by her h^ 2 sons ; 1. Henry ^ ancestor of the great and 
( opulent branch of the Hope8\ long settled in Amsterdam ; 

• and, 2. Thomas, entering upon the study of the law, made 
so rapid a progress in judicial knowledge, that he was, at an 
early age, c^ed to the bar : his practice was, however, 
limited till 1606, when he undertook the defence of the 6 

' ministers tried for high treason, for denying that the king 
possessed authority in matters ecclesiastical : he acquitted 
'himself so much to the satisfaction of the Presbyterians at 
'this important trial, that they never afterwards undertook 
any business of importance without previously consulting him, 
and he immediately came into the first practice in the king- 
dom ; by this, in a few years, he acquired one of the most 
considerable fortunes ever made at the Scots bar, which 
enabled him to make great landed purchases, as between 1613 
and 1642 he had charters of the lands of Grantoun, Edmons. 

• toun, and Cauldcotts, co. Edinburgh ; Preston Grange, co. 
Haddington ; Kerse, co. Stirling ; Mertoun, co. Berwick ; 
Kinninmouth, Arnydie, Craighall, Ceres, Hilltawet, and 
others, in Fife. His reputation now advanced so high, that 
he was constituted king*s advocate, jointly with sir William 
Oliphant, of Newton, and was created a baronet, 11 Feb., 
1628. Sir WiUiam Oliphant dying 13 April, 1628, king 
Charles I. was pleased not only to appoint sir Thomas Hope 
his sole advocate, but likewise to grant him several honourable 
privileges not enjoyed by his predecessors : m, Elizabeth, da. 
of John Bennet, of Wallyford, co. Haddington, and by her 
had a numerous issue.

The first of this name on record, is sir Gauliier de SomeV'-r 
villCy lord of Wichnour, &c., co. Stafford, and Aston-Somer- 
ville, CO. Gloucester, who came into England with William 
the Conqueror. He was ancestor of all the Somervilles in 
Great Britain. It appears, from Rymer^s Pcedera^ vol. xi. 
p. 301, that Thomas 'de Somerville, baron of Camwath^ was 
one of the ambassadors who, 1423, were permitted to come 
to London to treat for the ransom of their sovereign, king 
James I. Thomas Dominus de Somerville, is also a warden 
of the border, 1424. Thomas de Somerville of that ilk, sat as 
one of the assize by whom Murdoch, duke of Albany, was 
attainted of high treason. His lordship, 1386, founded, and, 
1424, endowed with some lands the collegiate church of Cam- 
wath, the burial-place of this ancient family : he m. Jane 
Stewart, da. of sir Alexander Stewart, of Damlie ; and had

Mowatt, (of ^tannas. His lordship was present at the ooro- 
nadon of king James II. at Edinburgh, 10 Mardi, 1437, And 
was in great favour with that monairh ; 1449, he was ap. 
pointed one of the Soots conservators of the trace between 
England and Scotland, then concluded, (see Rymer's Feed., 
rcL xL p. 254) ; in 1451 he was one of the ambassadors of 
Scotland nominated in a royal safe conduct, and in the same 
year we find him once more a conservator of the peace, which 
he had moat probably a share in the establishing, ib. 28&-900. 
His lordship had issue, 1. Johk, 3d lord; and, 2. Mary, m.,

of Quathquan, b, 1 April, 1457, Ist baron of Cambusnethan, 
of Uie name of Somerviiley after it was separated from the 
house of Cowthally, and became a distinct family. His lord- 
diip distinguished himself by his gallantry at the battle of 
Sark, 1448, in which the great champion, Magnus, with the 
red beard, was killed; his lordship, in 1457 &nd 1459, appears 
£rotn Rymer to have been a conservator of the peace in those 
years ; 1460, he attended king James II. to the siege of Rox- 
barjg^ in which that monarch was killed, aged 30. His lord-

rille. and otight to be placed on the roll of the peers of Scot- 
land, in wlii£ bin ancestor, lord SamernDe, sat in parliament, 
15 Feb., 1524. His lordship enlarged the family estate con- 
Bdenddy upon the following occasion : WilRam de Somervitte, 
the fonnder of the Soots baronial family, was second son of 
sir Walter de Somerville, of Whidmour, co. Stafford : the 
&ect male liiie of this English branch of the Somervilles had 
bem long ea:tinct, having ended in a sole heiress, who m, 
Staffiord^nke of Biiddngham, executed temp. Henry VIII. ; 
bat a ▼ery anaent branch of this family of Whichnour con- 
tiiraed to'floiuish in the descendants of Hoger de Semervitte^ 
who having obtained from his fhther^ sir Wailter de Sqiner- 
T^, of WhichAoor, the barony of Aston, co. Oloncesfer, 
bestowed u^aa it the name o( SomervUle Astbn : from a long 
line of aaoestony this esta,te, and the represetltation of the 
Engliak house, desdended upon WilHam Somerville, esq., of 
Eadstofie, ob. Warwick, and of Somerville-Aston, co. Oloa- 
eester, tilie cdebrafedauthdr of ^' T'he Chase," and other 
poems. Sconomy is seldom the companion of the nnises, sind 
this amiable and ing^^oos man became, ere the close of his 
Kfe, tnVtdved in 'jfeciiniary difficulties, whidi, mOst probably, 
a more strict attention, to hip affairs might nave prevented. 
3Ir. Sdiherville had been introduced to his Idr^mp by the 
ciiromstanoe of their common ancestry, which had neen an- 
nounced to him by the celebrated Scots poet, Alan Ramsay, 
ia Verses addressed to Mr. Somerville : 

" You hoth from one great lineage spring, 

Both from Somerville, who came 
With William, England's conquered king. 

To win fair plains and lasting fame. 

*' Whichnour he left to 's eldest son, 
That first-bom chief you represent ; 

His second came to Caledon, 

From whom our Somer*le takes descent." 

Being himself without issue, and desirous to continue the 
ancient estate in the same family, the poet made, 1730, an ar- 
rangement with lord Somerville, by which, in consideration of 
i^rtain sums, applied to the relief of burdens, he settled upon 
his lordship the reversion of his estates at his death, which 
ha]ijKMied 1742, when the English estates passed to the baro- 
nial Iwnise of Somerville, in Scotland, with whom they still 
rnniain. By this arrangement, the representation and "the 
ff^idiie of the ])roperty of both English and Scots branches 
1)1 this ancient family became united with the Scots title^ 


after a separation of more than 600 years. His lordship m., 
l8t, 1724, Anne, uterine sister of William, earl oC Brooke 
and earl of Warwick, sole da. of Henry Bayntun^ of Spye

the title, according to the patent of creation, devolved on his 
cousin, John, eldest son of Alexander Colville, commendator 
of Culross, above named, brother of the 1st lord ; but neither 
this John, his son, grandson, or great-grandson, ever ansumed 
the title, whidi consequently does not appear upon the union 
n»lL In 1722, however, John Colville, 6th in descent from 
Alexander, claimed the barony, and was declared, by a reso- 
lution of the house of lords, 27 May, 1723, to have made good 
liis claim, and his name directed to be added to the roll of 
peers, according to the date of the patent of 1609. His line

Cochrane- Johnstone, and has issue a son and a daughter. 

The origin of the family of Napier, is stated in a certificate 
under the hand and seal of sir Archibald Napier, of Merchistoun, 
dated 1 June, 1625, in the following words : — ^^ One of the 
ancient earles of Lenox, in Scotland, had issue three sonnes ; 
the eldest succeeded him in the earledom of Lenox ; the 
second, whose name was Donald, and the third was named 
Gillchrist ; the then king of Scotts having warres, &c., 
amongst some that were then commanded to serve the king 
in those warres, was the earle of Lenox, who keeping his 
eldest Sonne at home, sent his second sonne to serve for 
him ; this battell went hard with the Scotts, who were forced 
to loose grounde, and at last to runne away, which being 
perceived by Donald, he pulled his father's standard from 
the bearer thereof, and valiantly encountering the /oe, being 
well followed, repulsed the enemy, and changed the fortune 
of the day, whereby a greate victory was gott. After the 
battaile, the king said unto them : — Vov have all done va- 
liantly^ but there is one amongst you who hath na pier, — and 
calling Donald to his presence, in regarde of his worthy ser- 
vice, gave him in augmentacion of honor to change his name 
from Lenox to Napier, and gave him the lands of Gosfoord, 
&c., and made him his servant, which discourse is confirmed 
by sundry of my old evidences, wherein we are called Lenox, 
alias Napier." 

John Napier, " to whom," says Mr. Hume, the celebrated

M^ted him an extraordinary lord of session, 1626; and a 
r^ulation having taken place, that the officers of state should 
not sit as ordinary judges in that court, created him a baronet, 
2d March, and then advanced him to the title of lord Napier ^ 
to him and his heirs male, 4 May, 1627. He was a steady 
loyalist, and invariably attached to the interests of his sove- 
reign, which rendered him very obnoxious to the Covenanters, 
who threatened to forfeit him after his death, which happened 
in 1645 : their forfeiture was prevented by his family paying 
a considerable fine. He m. Margaret Graham, da. of John, 
4th earl of Montrose, and sister to the 1st marquess of Mon -

He was particularly excepted in Cromwell's Act of Indemnity, 
1654, and d. in Holland, where he had retired from the per- 
secution of his enemies, 1660, leaving issue by his wife, lady

Charles II., 7 Feb., 1677? confirming the original patent of 
the peerage of Napier to himself and his heirs male, farther 
granting the honours to his heirs female, and their heirs 
male and female, then to his sisters in sucoessioa, and their

a companion of William the Conqueror, to have been its ori* 
ginal ancestor ; others derive it from a younger son of the 
house of Clare, earls of Gloucester and Hertford ; and others, 
again, assert that a Walter Fitz-Gilbert, son of Gilbert 
Becket, a wealthy citizen of London, and brother of Thomas 
h Becket, archbif^op of Canterbury, was its founder. It is 
certain, however, that the family name was derived from the 
office of chief butler of Ireland ; we commence our account, 
therefore, with 

Theobald le BotxcIsb, on whom that office was con- 
ferred by king Henry lT.y anno 1177) ^^^ he and his succes- 
sors were bound to attend the kings of England at their coro- 
nation, and that day present them with the first cup of wine, 
for which they were to have certain pieces of the king's plate. 
Some time after, that king granted him the prisage and but- 
lerage of wines, to enable him and his heirs the better to sup- 
port the dignity of their office.* 

From this Theobald the office descended, through four 
generations, all of the same Christian name, to Theobald, 
5th butler, who dying unm^ 1290, was succeeded by his 

Edmokd d^ BotELCR, who sat in parlioibent a« a baron, 
1302, and-in 1315 was created earl of Carrickw He d, 1321, 
leaving^ besides other issue, 2 sons ; 1. James, his successor ; 
and^ 2. John, ancestor of the present earl of Carrick (see 
that Title). 

James, 2d earl of Carrick, was created, 2 Nov., 1328, 
earl of Ormond ; m. Eleanol', da. of Humphry de Bohun, earl 
<^ Hereford and Essex, and constable of England, (by the 
princess Elizabeth, da. of king Edward L,) and dying 1337, 
waQ succeeded by his son, 

James, 2d earl of Ormond, and 3d earl of Carrick; d. 
1383, leavmg a son, James, 3d earl of Ormond, who d. 1405, 
leaving 2 sons ; 1. James, 4th earl of Ormond ; and, 2. sir 
Richard^ ancestor of the present earl. 

James, 4th earl oi Ormond, d, 1452, leaving 3 sons ; 1. 
James, 5th earl, who was created earl of Wiltshire, 1440, 
taken prisoner at the battle of Towton, 1461, and beheaded, 

. * Under a decree of 12 Feb., 1584, the earl claimed to be entitled to the 
prisage and butlerage of all wines brought into aby of the ports, havensj &c. 
in Ireland ; but this claim having been foimd troublesome and vexations td 
trade, an act passed, 20 June, 1810, for the purchase of this right, and the 
sum of two hundred and sbcteoi thousand pounds was accordi^ly granted 
for the surrender of this claim, and revesting it in the crown for the public 
service ; and, 31 May, 1811, an act received the royal assent for abolishing 
the duties of the yriaage and butlerage of wines in Ireland.

Douglas the preceding year. On the 12th of July he also 
gained the decisive battle of Aghrim, over general St. Ruth. 
For these brilliant services he was most deservedly rewarded 
with the earldom of Athlone and barony of Aghrim. He like- 
wise received the thanks of the British house of commons; and, 
in 1693, had the grant of the forfeited estates of William Don- 
gan, earl of Limerick, amounting to 26,480 acres, confirmed in 
1695 ; and, 1692, was created earl of Athlone, and baron of

VOL. II. D D miss 


mitt Dooovan, Hut after an investigation wbieh lasted near 
4 years, the question was decided in favour of the earPs soil, 

Arthur, who, on coming of age in 1765) took his seat in 
the Irish house of peers as viscount Valentia, and immediately 
petitioned for his writ to the English parliament as earl <Mf 
Anglesey. Here, however, the judgement was different, the 
En^sh house of lords deciding against the petitioner. His 
oause was again argued before the Irish house of lords, who 
affirmed the contested marriage, and his lordship continued to 
sit as viscount Valentia, in Ireland. Some details of this case, 
one of the most curious in the history of the peomge, are 
given in the note. * His lordship was created, 20 Dec., 1793, 

* His lordship having been sspvratsd from his lady sereBsl ymn before 
her death, and at the tume of her death meeting an express in Wales, on his 
way to Ireland, giving him an account of that event, immediately I^ 
Wales, and returned to Ireland, accompanied by the rev. L. Neil, his lord- 
ship's chaplain, and on the 15th Sept., 1741, he was m. to Juliami Dooovan, 
by the said L. Neil, at hi« lordship's pindpal seat, at Camolin Park, oo. 
Wexford ; she was then about the i^ of 17, extremdy beautiful, and Mshly 
accompUshedf and a lady of an ancient and respectaote fismily, and haa re- 
sided with her mother in the town of Camolui, near his lordship's teat. 
Her motJiePs maiden name was Nixon, a very respectable ^Eimily, who 
possessed consideralde estates in tha^county. In 17q8, after the oieatfa of 
earl Richard, Mr. Jdbn Annesley, of Ballisack, preaentsd a petition to the 
then lord-lieut of Ireland, claiming the titles of viscount Valentia, and 
baron Mountnorris, as next in succession to those honours, In case Richard, 
the late earl of Anglesey, had died without issue male, lawfully b^otten. 
The said Arthur, the only son of the aforesaid Richard, earl of Anglesey, 
and viscount Valentia, presented a counter petition by his mother and guar- 
dian, Juliana, countess of Anglesey. The matter was referred to the at- 
torney and solicitor-gen. of Ireland, who heard counsel, and received evi- 
dence on both sides. After the fullest investigation, on examination of 
evidence, (which lasted near 4 years,) they reported, 21 Sept., 17G5, that the 
marriage of Richard, earl of Anglesey, with Juliana Donovan was duly 
solemnized, and that the titles of viscount Valentia, baron Mcuntnorris, 
and baron Altham, were legally vested in the said Arthur, the only son of 
the aforesaid Richard, earl of Anglesey, and viscount Valentia. 

In 1765, the said Arthur, having attained his age of 21 yearp, was calletl 
to parliament in Ireland by a writ of summons, and took his scat in the 
house of peers as Aiscount Valentia, baron Mountnorris, and baron Altham. 
In the same year, 1766, lord Valentia, towards the end of the session of par- 
liament, petitioned his majesty for his writ of siunmons to the parliament 
of Great Britain, as earl of Anglesey and baron Annesley, of Newport Pag- 
nell. This petition was referred by his majesty' to the then attorney -gen. of 
England, sir William de Grey, who reported, in the strongest terras, in 
favour of issuing the writ. Sir William was afterwards directed to re-con- 
sider his former report, and to give his opinion upon such new evidence as 
should be laid before him. After considering the whole of the evidence that 

was laid before hun on all sides, sir William dc Grey made a 2d report, re- 

■ Vale 
fe reported that Arthur, then lord Valentia, was the legitimate 

fkvour. He 

the evidence, and deciding u|)on every point in lord Valentia's 

son of the late earl of Anglesey, and, as such, entitled to the honours of the 
carl of Anglesey and baron Aimesley, of Newport Pagnell. Not withstanding 
these several proceedings and reports, his majestv was pleased to refer the 
matter to the house of lords of Great Britain. The question m this case 
was. Whether lord Valentia was the legitimate son or the late earl of An- 

glcst'y ?

iOwimb (notwithstanding tte prior decision of the house of lords of Great 
BrlfaA), ft Wa« finally mtermined, on the 2d of June, in the same year, 
upon a very full attendance of tte lords spiritual and temporal, ttet the latb 
lord viscount Valentia in Ireland, tte earl of Anglesey in England, was mar- 
ried, 15 Sept., 1741, to the said Juliana Donovan, the then countess dowager 
of Angleaey, tte mother of the sitting lord. This determination, it is ob- 
servable, was in the country wtere the facts allied by lord Valentia may bo 
supposed to be best known, and were liable to the strictest scrutiny, where 
tliey cottM te easily investigated, and where the characters of the several 
wi tut a uM were thoroughly known. IxMd AnnaW, the then chief iustice of 
tte klng'a bench in Ireland, spoke and argued very strongly in fkvour of 
Loid Valctltia*fe claim, and ^'oted for it The consequence was, ttet lord 
Valentia being acknowledged and declared by the house of peers in Ireland 
tote the iGgitlraate son of his father, Richard, the late earl of Anglesey, 
and viscount Valentia, was ever after duly summoned to parliament m 
that kingdom, and attended his duty there, and ei^oycd all the estates 
In GrcatBritaln and Ireland of which his said father, Richard, tte late carl 
of Anglesey, died seised. The said Arthur, viscount Valentia, onlv son of 
tte said Richard, earl of Anglesey, and viscount Valentia, was, in the vear 
1793, created an earl of the kingdom of Ireland, by the title of earl of 
Mountnorris, of Mountnorris Castle, co. Armof^h, to him and the liclrs male

John, tiie late Earl, 28 Jan., 1802. 

The ftmily of FitMffihbon^ the diief of which was styled 
the White Knight, otherwise ClangUfbon^ is descended 
from tiie Fitageruds, barons Offaley, progenitors of the great 
ha me i ef KUdaro and Desmond; from the same origin 
are d esc e nd e d the Ejughts of G/ifi, and the Valley, and the 
KnjiKhta of JT^rry, otherwise the BUu^ Knights. These 
titles were conferred by the earl of Desmond, as a count 
Filatfaie, <m junior branches of the house of Fitzgerald ; in 
the Bke manner as Hugh Lupus, the earl of Chester, created 
his infoior barons. 

The elder branch of the Fitzgibbons terminated in an 
heiresB, who carried the estate to the Kingston family, as thus 
described by 8mith, in his History of Cork, voL i. p. 45 ; viz.

laige po ssess ions in this territory, a part of which is now the 
estate of the right hon. the lord baron of Kingston, whose 
grandfather, sir John King, was, 4 Sept., 1660, so created by 
king Gharies IL The Ist lord m. Catharine, daughter of sir 
WnSiam Fenton, knt., and dame Mar^ret Fitz-Oibbon, his 
wife, sole heiress to the family of the White Knights.*' 

Thomas Fitzgibbok, of Ballylander, co. Kerry, esq., 
anoestor of the earls of Clare, representative of the collateral 
m^ line of the White Knights, assigned his estate to lord 
Kingston, for its better protection from the forfeitures then 
dire^ed against the families of Roman catholics ; but his 
leidship and Mr. Fitzgibbon shortly after deceased, leaving 
infsnt families ; and as no legal re-assignment of the estate 
perfiscted, it was never recovered. His son, John Fitz.

BninKren, Visoount Mounteurl, Baron Adiure, co. Limeridc, 
mA a Baronet of Great Britain, horn 24 Sept., 1782, suc- 
eeeded his father, Valentine-Richard, Ist Earl, 24 Aug., 1824 ; 
took the name of Wyndham^ in addition to, and before that 
of Qoin, by Royal Sign Manual, 7 April, 1815; married^ 27 
Be&, 1810, Caroline, da. and sole heiress of Thomas Wynd-

AmD-WTNDHAM, Viscoutit Mounteorl, b, 19 May, 1812 ; and, 
2. AtmO'Maria, b. Nov. 1814. 

The family of Qutn, according to the andent Irish gene- 
alogista, derive their surname from Con Cead Caha, or Con 
of the hundred battles, monarch of Ireland, in the 2d cen- 
tury ; his grandson, Cormac, was the first who bore the name 
of QttWi, I. e. the descendant of Con ; he is said to have been 
monarch of Ireland, in 254. At the first arrival of the Eng- 
liah, temp. Henry II., the family of Quin certainly possessed 
large territories, over which they governed as hereditary 
diieftains ; many places still retain their name, as Inchiquin, 
Tyquin, &c, though now conveyed to other proprietors. 
Camden mentions 0*Quin, of Dunderlus, among the Ulster 
chieftains, temp, queen Elizabeth ; he m. the sister of the 
famous 0*NeiL 


The immediate descent of the earl is from the anden^ 
bnmuch of Inchiquin, co. Clare, where his aiiioestors possessed 
Corofin, Inchiquin, and Glanquin, with the castles of Inchi- 
quin, Stomehouse, and Balleyportrey, and a|M>ear to have had 
great feudal power for many centuries. The family docu- 
ments detail a number of marriages with considerable fiamiliea 
during this period, and describe their feuds and final ezpulaioa 
from Clare by the more powerfid sept of the O'Briens, an4 
bring the pedigree down to 

John Quik, bishop of Limerick, 1621, which see he re- 
signed 1551, in consequence of his infirmities ; his brother, 
James Quiv, of KilmaUock, oo. J^imerick, (in which county 
their ancestor settled, on being deprived of his ancient 
patrimony in Clare,) was faUier of Donouoh Quiv, who 
m, Judidi, da. and sole heiress of O'Riordan, an Irish 
chieftain, d, 1671, and was interred in the abbey of Adare; 
he left issue^

chased a considerable estate, co. Limerick, and had a grant 
from Charles II., 13 Mardi, 1684, confirming to him the 
estate of Adare ; his descent fi^mi the andent princes of Ire- 
land is recognized by sir Richard Oamey, knt., Ulster king 
at arms, in a record entered in Ulster's office, in 1688 ; he m., 
1st, Bridget, da. and sole heiress of Andrew Rice, of Dingle, 
CO. Kerry, esq., (eldest brother of sir Stephen Rice, knt., lord-

The family of Upian was seated at Upton, oo. Cornwall, 
as early as the Conquest. 

Henry Uptok, 2d son of Arthur Upton, of Luckton, oo. 
Devon, went over to Ireland a capt. in the army, under the 
earl of Essex, 1698, and settled at Castle Upton, co. Tippe- 
rary. The several heads of the Upton family in Ireland have 
served near 140 years in parliament, without intermission. 
They were leaders of the dissenting interest ; had a very ez^ 
tensive influence in the north of Ireland ; and being firmly 
attached to the illustrious house of Hanover, as the strenuous 
supporters of the civil and religious liberties of the nation, 
they constantly exerted themselves in those northern counties 
witn the greatest zeal, activity, and spirit, in that cause. 

Arthur Upton, son and heir of Henry above named, 
left, besides other issue, two sons; 1. Clotworthjf, whose only 
da. and heir was created, 1766, viscountess Langford (see

LoDOE-EvANS DE MoNTMORENCY, Ist visoount Frank- 
fort de Montmorency, was returned to parliament 1768, and 
was 8 most zealous supporter of the rights and freedom of his 
ooontrj^; he assisted during the greatest part (tf five parlia- 
ments in all the measures then carried on for the establishing 
a free trade, and liberation of the constitution of Ireland ; he 
oontinued in parliament till he was called to the peerage in 
1800; tometunes in office, and frequently sacrifiosd to the 
politics of the day, he concurred in the legislative union of 
Oreat Britain and Ireland, upon the principle of its being the 
only measure likely to give quiet and repose to his country, 
long torn by civil and religious dissensions, by frequent in- 
surrections, and at length by actual rebellion ; whi<^ dissen- 
sioiu were fomented and encouraged by ambitious and disap- 
pointed men, who found, too late, that the/ were unable to 
preaerve their country from a baneful and horrible rebellion; 
and who, though certainly not intentionally accessory to the 
same, laid the foundation by their conduct for a legislative 
nnion, whidi at length became necessary for the purpose of 
oonaolidating the strength of the empire, and estabUshingand 
■ecnring the like constitution in church and state that Eng- 
land ei^oyed; amongst other offices, he was appointed re- 
erirer-general of the post-office, and master of the permit- 
ofBee, which offices he resigned 1789; in 1708, on the ap- 
pointment of earl Fitzwilliam to the government of Ireland, 
he was nominated his second secretary ; on the recall of the 
earl, he resigned his office, and went out of parliament ; 1707) 
he came into parliament, and was appointed a lord of the 
treasury and of the privy coimcil ; but it is not in this ele- 
vated sphere of b'fe that the real value of hian consists ; he 
was a useAil member of society in all the diiferent branches of 
public economy ; high sheriff of his own county of Kilkenny, 
vice-president of the society for the encouragement of arts, 
manufiictnres, and commerce in Ireland ; a trustee of the 
linen and hempen manufacture ; a commissioner for the im- 
nrovements of the port and harbour of Dublin, and the 
nridgea, quays, and docks thereof; president of the harmonic 
society, and foremost in every plan which had for its object 
social pleasures, or public utility ; in 1800 he was called to 
tha house of peers, by the title of baron Frankfort, of Gal- 
moye; and, 1815, his lordship was raised to the dignity of 
a viscount, by the title of viscount Frarikfort de Montmorency. 
With the strictest justice may be said of this noble family, 

o o 2 that 


that their ancient alliances in France, England, and Ireland, 
are of a superior kind ; nor have the descendant of those 
illustrious progenitors degenerated in any respect; for, in 
I773, no less than five members of t]bis distinguished family 
were, all at one time, seated in the parliament of Ireland, viz. 
lord Mountmorres, sir William Evans, and sir Heydock, for 
the dty of Kilkenny, Reymond for the city of Dublin, and 
Lodge-Evans, the present viscount, for the borough of Ban- 
don. In 1816, after a laborious investigation, as appears 
from the most unquestionable evidence, the royal Hoence was 
obtained for the re-assumption of the ancient surname of de 
Monimorenep orUy^ which had been delayed until then, occa- 
sioned by the present branch of the family having but re- 
cently iiUierited the title of baronet, which had succeeded to 
the ancient title of de Montemarisco, The late succession to 
the ancient family estate contributed materially to dear up 
many difficulties ; to which causes of delay may be added the 
time, labour, an^ expense, attendant upon an extensive and 
minute research through the records and chronicles of Eng- 
land, Ireland, and France. The viscount' m., 1st, 1 Jan.,
