THIS genealogical record of a prominent Quaker family and its collaterals 
is yet another testimony to the spiritual force and marv^ellous vitality 
of the teaching of George Fox. The history of the house is co-extensive 
with that of the Society of Friends, which was joined by its founder, a simple 
yeoman, one of that class which contributed so largely, in the seventeenth 
century, to the making not only of England, but of the United States of 
America. The spirit of the Pilgrim Fathers in the " Mayflower," and of 
the " Ironsides " on the field of battle, fighting for liberty of conscience, was 
also shown in that of the Friends when, " in their resolute performance of 
duties they conceived imposed upon them," they faced every hardship in the 
sacred cause of toleration. It was reflected in that sturdy yeoman, John 
Backhouse (p. 13), who, in 1661, endured patiently months of imprisonment 
in Lancaster Castle for meeting to worship with other Friends. In 1684 his 
cattle were sold for payment of tithes, and his younger son, James Backhouse 
(p. 14), our ancestor, obtained a place in Friends' " Book of Sufferings," by 
dying a prisoner in the same place and for the same cause in 1697. With 
unflinching persistence the family have adhered to the principles for which 
he died, and have continued to oppose as sturdily, even unto the present day, 
the similar impost of church rates. 

The singular success in commercial enterprise attained by those foreign 
Protestant refugees who fled to our shores " for conscience sake " proves that 
the qualities which drove them into exile stood them in good stead even in 
practical life. And so the sturdy independence of the Friends and their 
stubborn adherence to their principles were carried with success into business 


life, when England, from an agricultural, became a manufacturing countr}^ 
Such names as those of Bright, Forster, Vrf, Gurney, Pease, and other 
Quaker families remind us how prominent a part, in proportion to their 
numbers, the Friends have played, not only in modern commerce, but in 
the Legislature. 

The strenuous belief of Friends in the mission of the evangelist led them 
to seek converts even abroad. Many of our ancestors and their wives became 
public ministers of the Society of Friends, and Iceland and North America 
were visited by William (p. 15), (the son of the martyred James), who died in 
the middle of the last century, and Mauritius, Cape Colony, and Van Dieman's 
Land by James Backhouse (p. 37), of York, 1831-41, as missionaries. 

William Backhouse (p. 15), the first missionary, and the last yeoman of his 
line, left Yealand, the home of his ancestors, removed to Over Kellett about 
1727, becoming, as he tells us in his will, a " dealer in yarn;" -and there he 
died. His son James (p. 17) was the first settler in Darlington, where, together 
with his sons, he carried on the business of flax dresser and linen manu- 
facturer, and established in 1774 the banking house, now a household word 
in the north of England. 

From this date the various members of the family have interested them- 
selves in the principal commercial enterprises in the palatinate. Conspicuous 
among them may be named Jonathan Backhouse (p. 25), of Darlington, silver 
medallist of the Society of Arts, who was a promoter of the Stockton and 
Darlington Railway — the first to carry passengers — and who yet, amongst his 
varied engagements, found time, as did his wife, to travel extensively as 
ministers of the Society of Friends. Another, Thomas Backhouse (p. 34), of 
York, was a prominent director both of railways and of banks ; while his younger 
brother James (p. 37), one of the missionaries referred to, now represented by 
his grandson and namesake, was a well-known York botanist. This recital may 
fittingly close with a reference to the late Edward Backhouse (p. 32), author of 
" Early Church Histor}^" so well known in Sunderland (see " Dictionary of 
National Biography "), and to the present head of the family and of the bank, 
Edmund Backhouse (p. 1 1), who was Darlington's first Member of Parliament, 
1868-74, and 1874-80. 


Nor does this exhaust the roll, for among collaterals is John WakcficKi 
(p. 64), of Kendal, founder of another and equally well-known banking house, 
Wakefields, Crewdsons and Co. ; and a casual glance at the names in the index 
will doubtless recall other triumphs in commerce by many offshoots of tlu; 

The 130 portraits which illustrate this work will lend a hitherto uni(]Uc 
charm to the book, and their appearance in a work of this kind is due in the 
first instance to the acquiescence of T. W. Backhouse (p. 33), of West Hcndoii 
House. ToW. Ecroyd (p. 36), of Lomeshaye, Nelson (editor of " Court Rolls 
of the Honor of Clithcroe," 2 vols.), the family is also indebted for contributing 
much original matter, for revising proofs, and for the pedigrees in the wil!.^' 
volume, which has expanded far beyond its intended limits, and which canncA 
fail to be correspondingly appreciated by the genealogical faculty, though the 
wills are tantalizing to us in their refusal to illustrate the history of this faniiiy 
to any appreciable extent. My hope is, however, that our combined efforts 
will be approved by our kin, and be a fresh encouragement to me in my life- 
long exertions against spurious titles, spurious genealogy, and spurious coat 

It is not a little singular that in the United States, where families arc 
now widely scattered and more difficult to trace than with us, there is infinitely 
more of the family feeling, as exhibited in numerous family histories and 
interesting family gatherings. One may fairly hope that such works as this 
tend to foster here also a wholesome family spirit, an intelligent and rational 
interest in our forefathers. To quote from a well-known writer who has nut 
long passed away: "We shall surely not be the less at home in our own 
generation if we bear in mind that we are the heirs and scholars of the 
generations that went before us, if we now and then stop in our own course 
to thank the memory of those without whom our own course could not have 
been run, if we are ready at every fitting moment to praise ' famous men and 
our fathers that begat us.' "
