PREFACE TO EDITION OF 1844.
Compiled by Sarah Lawrence, a Descendant in the Fifth Degree.
THE annexed tables of the Descendants of the Rev. Philip Henry are
founded upon a genealogical tree, drawn up originally about fifty years ago
by Mr. Matthew Witton, one of the descendants of that excellent man,
a copy of which was made, some years ago, by a friend for the editor. Having
availed herself of the several opportunities of communication with different
branches of the family which have occurred during the long period that has
elapsed since the original document came into her possession, to make such
additions as were from time to time needful, she is induced to print a few copies
for the benefit of such of the descendants as may desire to possess one ; in the
belief that a reverential regard for the memory of our forefathers, where it is
founded on the intrinsic qualities of the mind and character, rather than on the
adventitious circumstances of rank and position — on what they have been, rather
than what they have possessed, can scarcely fail to exert a valuable moral in-
fluence on the minds of their descendants. The editor prefixes a summary of
the life of the head of the family, which was drawn up by the gentleman, (Mr.
Witton) who originally made out the tree, which was ingeniously arranged,
so as to compose the trunk, whilst the names of the different children diverged
off in the form of branches. As these however had become, in the lapse of so
many years, too heavily laden with names, to admit of their retention in their
original form, a different mode of arrangement has been adopted, and one
which it is believed will prove more convenient for reference.
The following works (from the first of which the summary here given is
taken) may be consulted as throwing additional light on the family history :
1. — Life of Philip Henry by his son, Matthew Henry; an
enlarged edition of this has been published within the last few
years by Sir John Bickerton Williams.
2. — The Life of Matthew Henry by Mr. Tong, and one also by
Sir J. B. Williams.
3. — The Life of Mrs. Savage (P. Henry's eldest daughter) by Sir
J. B. Williams, to which is added a memoir of Mrs. Hulton
and one of Mrs. Radford by Rev. M. Henry.
The editor has been anxious to render this little work as complete and cor-
rect as possible ; but fears that, in spite of all her care, some omissions and errors
will be found ; for any such, she must entreat the reader's candid indulgence.

LIFE OF REV. PHILIP HENRY, REFERRED TO IN PRECEDING PREFACE.
JOHN HENRY, father to Philip, was the son to Henry Williams of Brittons-
Ferry, near Swansea ; according to the custom then prevalent in Wales,
to make the christian name of the father the surname of the son. John
Henry was first Gentleman to the Earl of Pembroke, and afterwards page to
James II., when Duke of York. He married Mrs. Magdalen Rochdale of St.
Martin's-in-the-Fields, Westminster, a virtuous, pious gentlewoman, and one that
feared God above many. She died March 6th, 1645, leaving behind, her son
Philip and five daughters. A little before her death she had this saying, "My
head is in Heaven and my heart is in Heaven, it is but one step more and I shall
be there too."
Philip Henry was born at Whitehall, Westminster, 1631 ; named Philip, by
Philip, Earl of Pembroke, who, with James, Earl of Carlisle, and the Countess of
Salisbury, were his sponsors. He was chosen in 1647 from Westminster School,
to Christ Church, Oxford. In 1651, B.A.; in 1652, M.A. He preached his
first sermon at Hincksey, in Oxfordshire, Jan. 1653. In this year he removed
to Worthenbury, a small town in the detached portion of Flintshire, about eight
miles from Whitchurch, to be Chaplain to Judge Puleston, whose Lady was emi-
nent for wisdom, piety and learning, above most of her sex. In 1657 he was
ordained by the nearest class of acting Presbyters in the north of Shropshire. In
1659, presented to the living of Worthenbury; in this year Judge Puleston died,
and Philip Henry's interest in that family died with him. April 26th, 1660, he
married Katharine, only daughter of Daniel Matthews, Esq., of Broad-Oak, near
Whitchurch, by whom he had a competent estate, which supported him when he
was ejected in 1662, and enabled him to assist others, in which he sowed plenti-
fully, saying, "it is more blessed to give than to receive." The maiden name of
Mrs. Henry's mother was Sarah Benyon, originally ap Einion, as appears by a short
table of her descent from that family inserted at the end of the volume. On
being ejected from Worthenbury in 1662, he removed to Broad-Oak. From this
time till 1666 he endured great persecution. In 1667 he removed to Whit-
church and on the following year back to Broad-Oak again. In 1674 he set up
a week-day lecture there, which was continued for about eighty years. In 1685
he, with Mr. Owen, held a public disputation with Lloyd, bishop of St. Asaph
and Mr. Dodwell at Oswestry. In 1685 he with many others was committed to
Chester Castle, where he remained three weeks. Nevertheless in May, 1688, he
was nominated a Justice of the Peace for Flintshire, but declined acting. On
Lord's Day, June 21st., 1696, he preached as usual. On Tuesday the 23rd, he
was seized with a fit of stone and colic; and after about sixteen hours' illness he
departed June 24th., 1696. He took an affectionate leave of his wife, with a
thousand thanks for all her care and tenderness ; and, like dying Jacob, said to
his son, "The Lord bless you and grant that you may do worthily in your gener-
ation, and be more serviceable to the church of God than I have been." His
last words were, " Oh death where is thy ? " the last word was lost in death.
He was buried in Whitchurch Church, June 27th, where is a monument, erected
by his son-in-law, Dr. Tylston, of Chester, on which is inscribed an epitaph. His
funeral sermon was preached by his friend Mr. Talents, of Shrewsbury. Kath-
arine Henry, his wife, died in 1703. His usual compliment to his children when
settling, was, " I wish you all holiness, and then, there is no doubt that you will
have all happiness."
PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION.
During the fifty-five years that have elapsed since the publication by Miss
Sarah Lawrence of a list of the descendants of Philip Henry it would have been
impossible without continuous and systematic effort to keep a complete record of
the various branches of the family. The fair-sized volume filled by the enumer-
ation of the descendants of his great-great-grandson, John Swanwick, indicates
that the task of obtaining a complete list of all the descendants of Philip Henry
at the present day would be almost too extensive an undertaking. If it had
been possible to obtain such a list, the person best qualified to have done so was
the Rev. Matthew Henry Lee, vicar of Hanmer, Flintshire, who in 1882 collected
and published "The Diaries and Letters of Philip Henry."* The original diaries
and letters are the prized possessions of a large number of persons belonging to
different branches of the family.
It is remarkable that in 1844 when facilities for postal communication were
so scanty, Miss Lawrence was able to collect so complete and correct a list.
The compilers of the present edition hope that now when the ends of the world
are so much nearer together, it may be possible to gather material for a future
and more extended edition not confined to the Swanwick branch. Some ma-
terial is already in hand.
Opposite page 50 will be found a table, the result of researches of Edward
Filliter, Esq. The descendants of the brothers of Joseph Swanwick must surely
have died out, or the search in the city directories described on page 1 2 would
have resulted differently.
To any who may apply for a grant of arms the following facts may prove inter-
esting and of value. Philip Henry had, as his seal, chequers, with a fleur-de-lis
for crest, and Matthew Henry bore three battle-axes ppr. per fess upon a field,
gules. But neither these nor the Swanwick "sable, 3 swans argent" are to be
found in " Burke's Armorial" or in the Heralds' College of Arms. The Swan-
wick arms appear in an old pedigree of an ancient Swanwick family contained in a
manuscript at the British Museum. Mr. Carter who has written some articles on
the Swanwick family in "The Midland Antiquary," says that Randal Holme, an
ancient and eminent genealogist of Cheshire, gives as the arms of Henry de Swan-
wirke — "sable, 3 swans argent" and he adds that "these arms were probably

ancient arms but were not allowed by the Heralds, and the Swanwicks at various
times used other coats; but none the less any of the Cheshire and Shropshire
Swanwicks who may hereafter apply for a grant of arms should seek to have it
founded on these bearings whose simplicity is strong evidence of their antiquity."
It would have been interesting to have collected for this edition brief sketches
of the different members of the family, but time and opportunity have sufficed
only for gathering the few biographical notes which are here appended.
In view of the possibility of a third edition being hereafter desired, it is hoped
that all who are in possession of any items of interest will communicate them to
the compilers without delay, and will notify them of any necessary or desirable
additions or corrections.
The arrangement finally adopted seemed the most convenient, and to
the following features of it attention is specially invited.
For the names of each generation a different type is employed. The last
four generations, in their order, are marked as follows :—
i ; a; (i) ; and (a), and so on respectively,
the columns being correspondingly indented.
The heads of the different families are set out on page 14. The names
throughout are not printed closely, and a wide margin is left, in order that the
record may be more conveniently annotated as the years roll by.
So far as possible the compilers have endeavored to obtain correct addresses
together with such other information as might facilitate inter -communication,
hoping thus to make the book a sort of vade mecum. Members of the family
who happen to travel may find therein convenient guidance, should they wish to
verify by personal experience the reputation for clannishness and hospitality which
has always distinguished the Swanwick family.
The compilers regret that a larger number of photogravures are not inserted.
In any future edition, however, it might be possible to enlarge the collection, al-
though this would involve much additional labor and expense.
Great pains have been taken to make the subjoined genealogical lists as
complete and as correct as possible. If any success has heen achieved it is due
to the kindly interest taken in the compilation by a large number of the persons
mentioned therein. If any errors or omissions are observed, the compilers will
esteem it a favor if such are promptly pointed out and forgiven. While the
record was in course of preparation, and while it was in the press, changes oc-
curred which the compilers were unable to correct in type. Many suggestions
and corrections were received only at the last moment. Each copy of the book
will before delivery be carefully corrected up to date, so that subscribers may
have as true a record as possible.
Special thanks are due and are hereby presented to the following persons :
Alfred J. Boult, Cedric R. Boult, Louis H. Boult, Edward Filliter, Mrs. Frances
Garrett, Rev. Alex. Gordon, Mrs. Eliza Lucy Hunter, Miss Susan Katharine
Hutton, Barton Hutton, Darnton Hutton, Rev. and Mrs. D. D. Jeremy, Rev.
Septimus Jones, Mrs. Arnold Lupton, W. N. Ponton, Miss Hannah T.
Swanwick, J. Alfred Swanwick, Frank Swanwick, and Arthur Wicksteed.
" He believed ill of no one, and never dreamed of imputing' im-
proper motives, so absolutely unconscious was he in his own integrity."
'Twas thus that an aged man spoke of the writer's grandfather, William Hutton.
Fortunate is the man who is thus taught to think of his forefathers. If in early
years one is imbued with veneration for the integrity of his ancestors, it is little
wonder that as he grows older the tracing of his ancestry becomes a fascination
to him. My father's generation always spoke of England as " the Old Country,"
and a journey thither was called "going home." We of our generation were
never allowed to forget those whom our fathers or grandfathers left behind
them when they journeyed forth into the further parts of the great Empire,
"vaster than has been."*
In 1 83 1 the late William Hutton (p. 20) and his family removed to Canada.
At that time, and for many years thereafter communication between Canada and
Great Britain was slow and difficult. Other branches of the family removed to
the United States of America, to New Zealand, and to various distant lands.
Under ordinary circumstances where no such family centres continued to exist as
'Fairfield' at Glasnevin, Dublin, their common origin would have soon been forgotten-
In 1856 the Rev. Joseph Hutton died aged 90 years, and in 1864 Mary Swan-
wick Hutton, his wife, aged 96, (p. 14) but " Fairfield" still continued to be a shrine
for family pilgrims who journeyed thereto show their devotion to as sweet a woman
as ever God breathed the breath of life into, "Aunt Mary " or "Cousin Mary "
Hutton. (p. 16).
It was my privilege in 1886 to spend two weeks at " Fairfield," where ninety-
four years sat so lightly on my old Aunt's head, that it was indeed a merry visit.
As she presented in a highly developed form a beautiful type of womanhood
frequently recurring in the different branches of the family, the following remin-
iscences may prove interesting in themselves, and may also serve to call to mind
other loved ones.
Barton Hutton (see p. 20) is perhaps best qualified to describe this dear old
lady, for he lived at " Fairfield " when he was a boy. He writes : "It was what
authors would call 'a home of ancient peace,' not depressed by ennui nor ruffled
by a shadow of ill humour. During all the thirty years I knew her I cannot re-
member Aunt Mary once out of temper, though my brother and I must often have
been very tiresome. Servants used to stay there till they were superannuated.
Those whom you found there were successors of a trio who were old when I was a
child. Visitors used to say that not even a tea-cup was ever broken at Fairfield,
where they saw the old cups of Dr. Johnson's time made without handles, brought
on the tea table In the main her mind seemed to be occupied by senti-
ment, tender but not sad, and rarely expressed in words, but no doubt the source of
her many loving actions. On one occasion when over seventy years of age,
hearing of a prime favorite of hers, Miss Fanny Boult, of Liverpool, being near
her death, she suddenly left Fairfield without a word to anyone and travelled to
f " We hold a vaster Empire than has been," (from a poem by Lewis Morris) is the superscription upon
the Canadian Imperial penny stamp issued upon the inauguration of Imperial penny postage on Christmas day,
Liverpool by herself, arriving just in time to say goodbye. I suppose she had
not been out of County Dublin before that since the days of stage coaches, and
was quite unequal to such an effort. Nothing but her profound appreciation of
a character as genuine as her own and as unselfish, could explain it. Excepting
this, I fear I cannot recall for you any characteristic anecdote of her or of
Fairfield life. Perhaps, because the whole life there was so uniformly character-
istic of genuine goodness and happiness of an uneventful kind.
" I remember, however, one incident of a letter written and posted by me
when a boy, concerning a " row " got into at school which Aunt Mary thought
would be to my prejudice in some way and ought to have been differently
expressed. So she started off by herself, induced the postmistress of Glasnevin,
whom she knew, to give up the letter (thereby no doubt committing some very
illegal act) and destroyed it, getting me to write another. Yet a more tender
conscience I suppose never existed. I daresay the postmistress presumed that
she could do no wrong."
" Fairfield " was built in the early seventeenth century style, when Glasnevin
used to be affected by Addison f Parnell the poet, and others, and also by Dean
Delany and his guest Dean Swift, who is said to have there written some of
From the landing, half way up the stairs, one looked out on a garden as old
fashioned as the house and its occupants. Mulberry trees ever so old, even in
Aunt Mary's childhood, a yew tree hedge known to travellers as one of the high-
est and finest in the world, hazel trees planted by her own hand, grown from
nuts she brought from her grandfather's home at Wem, Shropshire, these and
other objects of interest the charming hostess lingered upon the landing
to point out. Playfully after each meal would the old lady draw attention to
these, pausing for breath beside the old fashioned casement, never so indis-
creet as to admit her real object in thus breaking her journeys to the sittingroom.
On the other side of the house stood the row of magnificent elms. Within
a few rods of her brother William Hutton's homestead, near Belleville, Ontario,
still stands part of a monster elm which in the early part of this century attracted
him to that spot as it reminded him of " Fairfield."
In 1886 it was found necessary to cut down the Fairfield elms. This was a
great grief to Aunt Mary, but her sunny disposition appeared even when she
spoke of that catastrophe. Her old servant Kate, whose attachment to her
mistress was delightful to behold, was standing near, when the old lady
remarked : —
" I had to get those fine old elms cut down, for they were getting very
rotten. If one had fallen and killed Kate," (this very seriously), " why that
wouldn't have mattered ; but if one had fallen and killed me, that would have
been a dreadful loss."
On another occasion she begged me " not to go near the Jeremys. They
have scarletina there. There are eleven children at my lodge gate house. It
would not matter about them, but it would be dreadful if you brought it to me."
This, said with a mock solemnity and followed by a merry chuckle, was a tempta-
tion to give her a heartier hug than her frail body would sustain.
A barer house it would have been hard to find. Aunt Mary, in her attempts
to give a present or a souvenir to every relative that visited her, had well nigh
stripped her dwelling. Her nature was as generous as it was serene.
One day as I walked with her through the rooms of the old house, she
searched for something to give me; but alas "the cupboard was bare.'' Leaning
on my arm she chatted merrily. Pointing to a cupboard over a door-way, she
said, as she lovingly patted my arm with her left hand, "and there, my dear, is
where we store old lumber and useless old things, — like your head my dear."
She showed me a window pane on which a domestic had scratched,
" Tender, slender, very young,
An ugly face but pleasing tongue."
— Mary Kirkpatrick, ijbj.
Aunt Mary's father "Joseph" and mother "Mary" had an Irish coach-
man of whom she told the following story.
If kept waiting too long on a cold night when his master and mistress were
at some evening entertainment, he used in those laxer days to fortify himself
somewhat too strongly by imbibing warmth. On one occasion they found him
somewhat incapacitated, so they put him inside the family coach while they
mounted the driver's seat. The hilarious passenger, good Roman Catholic as he
was, kept shouting as the carriage rattled home, " Joseph and Mary have mercy
on us." The sin was soon forgiven this pious servant.
Aunt Mary was one day taking her mid-day doze. As she used to rise early
and breakfast at eight, it was a wonder she did not doze oftener. [As an early
riser she followed the example of her mother who lived till she was 96. Her
Aunt, Mrs. Drennan, always breakfasted in bed, and also lived till nearly a century
old, both systems answering equally well.] The floors of the ancient house were
wont to creak most inconsiderately, so that the house was almost burglar proof.
I had to pass for some purpose through the room in which Aunt Mary was lying,
and took off my boots so that my passage might be less noisy. At a critical
moment, however, the floor creaked and woke the old lady. She raised her head
upon her hand and with mock solemnity thus rebuked me.
" You noisy boy," she said, shaking her finger at me, " you wake all Dublin
with your noise."
" You conceited old lady," I retorted, glad of an opportunity to start Aunt
Mary into repartee, at which she was never beaten, " You seem to imagine that
you are all Dublin."
The old lady, with an assumed air of great importance sat upright upon the
sofa, and referring to the fact that " Fairfield " was a little distance out of Dublin,
retorted (with that merry, appreciative chuckle of hers, which of itself would
have endeared her to her companion), "That's very good, but I would have
you know that I am beyond Dublin."
Those who knew not the lovely woman I have thus inadequately described,
yet wjjl recall from what I have here set down, some saintly woman, the memory
of whose face and life is an inspiration and a spur to a higher holier life.
" The light upon her face
" Shines from the windows of another world.
" Saints only have such faces."*
" Long-fellow. " Michael Angelo."
One of my earliest recollections is of such a face, that of my " Aunt Annie "
Ponton. Surely a pride of ancestry and of family that serves only to increase
one's longing to do and to be something better and more like those whom one
has learned to love and revere has in it nothing priggish or ignoble.
To trace one's descent from the Reverend Philip Henry and to spend time
and labor in doing so, may seem a foolish toil to those who know not and care
not who their great grandfather was or to those who trace their origin from royal
But a descent from such an eminent and truly admirable Christian as Philip
Henry can never fail to be of interest to those whose family pride is like that of
the greatest poet of the home and of the domestic affections, who declared ;
" My boast is not that I deduce my birth
" From loins enthroned and rulers of the earth;
" But higher far my proud pretensions rise, —
" The son of parents passed into the skies." t
Religious history is soon forgotten, and so Philip Henry is now little known
to a generation that is still familiar with the work of his great son, the commen-
tator, Mathew Henry.
It is interesting to read the latter's notes on Titus, chap. III., v. 9.
" But avoid foolish questions and genealogies and contentions and strivings
about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain."
"There are needful questions to be discussed and cleared, such as make
for improvement in useful knowledge ; but idle and foolish enquiries tending
neither to God's glory nor the edification of men, these must be shunned. And
genealogies of the gods say some, that the heathen poets made such noise about ;
or rather those that the Jews were so curious in : some lawful and useful
enquiries might be made into these things, to see the fulfilling of the scriptures in
some cases, and especially in the descent of Christ the Messiah ; but all that
served to pomp only and to feed vanity, in boasting of a long pedigree and much
more such as the Jewish teachers were ready to busy themselves in and trouble
their hearers with even since Christ was come, and that distinction of families
and tribes had been taken away, as if they would build again that polity which
now is abolished; these Titus must withstand as foolish and vain."
Perhaps the most famous passage in Matthew Henry's commentary is his
note on Genesis, chap. II., v. 21.
" The woman was made out of a rib out of the side of Adam ; not made out
of his head to top him, not out of his feet to be trampled upon by him, but out
of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected, and near his
heart to be beloved."
Philip Henry's wife was a beautiful character, and indeed her personality
adds much to the charm of his biography. The following interesting anecdote is
related of her. Her father was much opposed to her marriage, urging that
although Mr. Henry was a gentleman and a scholar, and an excellent preacher,
he was quite a stranger and it was not even known where he came from.
" True," replied Miss Matthewes, " but I know where he is going to, and I should
like to go with him."
t Cowper. " On the receipt of my Mother's Picture."
One of Philip Henry's descendants, Mr. John Ireland, editor of Hogarth's
works, was introduced to Dr. Johnson as a descendant of Philip Henry, on
which that great man remarked, in his emphatic manner, — *
"Sir, you are descended from a man whose genuine simplicity and unaffected
piety would have done honour to any sect of Christians, and as a scholar he must
have had uncommon acquirements when Busby boasted of having been his
One is inclined to regard the nonconformists of the time of Charles II. as
somewhat narrow-minded in their religious zeal. And lest the reader might be
tempted to think that the pre-eminent nonconformist Henry was prone to think
all damned who were not of his mind in religious matters, I cite a passage from
his diary :
" In those things wherein all the people of God are agreed I will spend my
zeal ; and wherein they differ I will endeavor to walk according to the light that
God hath given me, and charitably believe that others do so too." Those of us
who are tolerant are hardly aware that at times ours is the greatest intolerance in
the world when we feel and express our impatience at the narrow mindedness of
an intolerant man. In proportion let us admire and esteem broad-mindedness.
We read with satisfaction John Wesley's i comments on " the disputatious
temper of some as to opinions and externals." He adds, " But I do not include
that venerable man Mr. Philip Henry nor any that were of his spirit, in this
number. I know they abhorred contending about externals. Neither did they
separate themselves from the church. They continued therein till they were
driven out, whether they would or not."
An example of Philip Henry's broad-mindedness is related in a short
biography of him, published by the Religious Tract Society :
" One day when he and many of his followers were at Whitewell Chapel, the
clergyman tried to prove in his sermon that all dissenters were in a state of
damnation. When Henry was about to preach in the afternoon he said, 'perhaps
some of you expect me to answer the severe charge that has been brought
against us ; but truly I have something else to do,' and then he preached to them
Jesus Christ and Him crucified. With his large liberal heart he could neither
bear narrowness of mind in others, nor allow it in himself."
It is remarkable that the life of the incumbent of a small living in Flintshire,
whose mouth was stopped and public work suspended for some of the best years
of his life should still be remembered, when thousands of others of his day and
generation are forgotten. His descendants have never ceased to remember with
pride the simple piety, true orthodoxy, and high attainments of their common
ancestor. If anyone is industrious enough to count the number of persons
named " Philip Henry" in the genealogical list now published, he will be satisfied
that even to the present day men boast of a lineage, noble in a true sense.
Miss Anna Swanwick, (seep. 27), the most eminent person of any of
those now living, mentioned in these pages, told me of an interesting petition
presented to Parliament by Lord Macaulay, and signed by no descendants of

Philip Henry. Through the kind researches of the Rev. D. D. Jeremy, * I am
able to give full particulars and to relate the events which led' to its presentation.
Soon after the restoration of Charles II. the "Act of Uniformity" was
renewed, which required the ministers of the Church of England to " give their
consent and assent " to everything contained in the Prayer-book. The result
was that 2000 of the clergy (about one-fifth of the entire number) refused and
were ejected from their livings on St. Bartholomew's Day, 1662.! Many of these
ejected ministers carried their people with them and formed congregations,
thenceforth designated as the " English Presbyterians." These ministers and
their followers though at first differing little from the Established Church, had no
written or fixed creed. They held together by sympathies and agreements which
were not defined. This was one of their leading characteristics and was not
accidental. In course of time they built meeting houses and became possessed
of considerable endowments, J but they deliberately avoided binding their succes-
sors by the insertion of creeds in the trust deeds of their chapels. These
"English Presbyterians" thus became a free religious community, and in the
exercise of their freedom some of them gradually passed through various phases
of faith, exchanging Calvinism for Armenianism and Armenianism for Arianism,
and passing from Arianism to Modern Unitarianism. §
About 1835 dissenters who considered themselves more orthodox began to
question the right of some of the congregations to their Meeting Houses and en-
dowments on the ground that the latter did not hold the same views as the
founders of the trusts. After long litigation " Lady Hewley's Fund " was wrest-
ed from the persons to whose control it had passed. Thereupon legislation was
applied for, and Sir Robert Peel, though not in the least sympathizing with the
religious views of the petitioners, introduced into parliament the " Dissenters'
Chapel Bill" which was passed and put a stop to all litigation in July, 1844. The
act provides that where there is no express statement in a chapel trust deed as to
the doctrine for which the chapel was to be employed, 25 years undisturbed en-
joyment shall be conclusive in favor of the congregation in possession.
The following is a copy of the petition referred to.
The humble petition of the Undersigned, Members of the Presbyterian De-
nomination, being Descendants of Philip and Matthew Henry,
That your petitioners are lineally descended from the learned and
pious Philip Henry, M.A., who was ejected by the Act of Uniformity in
the year of our Lord, 1662, from the Incumbency of Worth ingbury, in
the county of Flint, and who greatly contributed by his laborious ministry,
both public and private, to collect those non-conformist societies which
afterwards became known by the designation of " English Presbyterians."
y Mr. Jeremy (p. 19) was for many years minister of "the Eustace Street Meeting-house," Dublin, of
which my great-grandfather, Rev. Joseph Hutton, was minister for over sixty years.
t Cf. Philip Henry's will " Witness my hand and seal this 24th day of August, 1695, being the day of the
year of which I was born, '631, and also the day of the year in which, by law, I died, as did also near two
thousand other faithful ministers of Jesus Christ, 1662."
I In the dedication of the fourth edition of the Rev. Joseph Hutton's " Family Prayers " his congregation
is spoken of as "The Presbyterian Congregation Assembling in Eustace Street Meeting-house, Dublin."
This meeting-house is well endowed.
§ To a person unlearned in theology such differences appear to be mere matters of terms and not of sub-
stance, if he reads such prayers as those contained in the book written by the Rev. Joseph Hutton, for it would
be difficult to imagine language and thought more suited to the feelings and beliefs of all Christians than this
That your petitioners are also collaterally descended from the Rev. Mat-
thew Henry, son of the above named Philip Henry, well known by his
public preaching among the early non-conformists of England and to a
wider circle by his learned and laborious Commentary on the Scriptures
That your petitioners and their ancestors from the times of the said Philip
and Matthew Henry to the present day have been wont to worship in the
chapels and meeting-houses called Presbyterian in an unbroken succession
of generations without let or hindrance from any parties whatsoever.
That some of your petitioners sustain the office of Christian ministers
among the afore-named societies and in this respect follow in the steps
of their fathers for several generations, and others of your petitioners
have been appointed Trustees of various of the afore-named Meeting-
houses by regular appointment at the hands of their predecessors.
That nevertheless they understand that if recent decisions of the
highest Courts of Law shall remain in force they will be endangered in
the continuance of their worship in these their wonted places of assembly
and will be liable to be ejected at the suit of any stranger from chapels
with some one or other of which they and their ancestors have remained
connected for a period approaching to 200 years and where alone they
find a form of worship carried on which accords with their convictions of
God's sacred truth.
That they have therefore heard with the liveliest satisfaction and
gratitude that a bill has already received the sanction of the Right Honor-
able the House of Lords, the purpose of which is to confirm themselves
and others situated like themselves in the possession of their present
places of worship, and they humbly petition your Honourable House to
bestow upon that bill your further sanction, that it may with all con-
venient speed become the law of the land, and thus the minds of your
Petitioners may be relieved from much anguish and distress, the con-
sequence of their present uncertain tenure of their Houses of Prayer
and places of interment which have become endeared to them by so
many cherished associations.
And your Petitioners will ever pray.

It is interesting to note that although the Rev. Joseph Hutton and his son,
the Rev. Joseph Hutton, remained " English Presbyterians," the Rev. Joseph
Henry Hutton, his grandson, joined the established church, and four great grand-
sons were ordained clergymen of the Church of England.
His grandson, Richard Holt Hutton, (p. 18) was at first a Unitarian, but after-
wards joined the Church of England as a follower of Maurice. Of him it has been
written : " Through a period of great intellectual and religious disquietude he
made a splendid use of the vantage ground afforded by the pages of a prominent
secular journal * for the defence of the Christian faith. It would be hard to
point to any one Christian apologist to whom we owe more than we do to the
man who used ' The Spectator" 1 as a bulwark against the agnostic and material-
istic thought of our times."
Details of the longevity of different members of the family will no doubt be
of interest. Mr. John Swan wick, [p. 45] the oldest member on 'Change in Man-
chester, at the age of ninety-one goes every day to his office, thirteen miles, and
is still an alert member. A fall which broke two ribs when he was ninety kept
him from business five weeks only. At eighty-six years of age Miss Anna Swan-
wick takes an active part in public functions and delivers addresses on literary
subjects. At eighty-nine years of age her sister, Mrs. Henry Bruce, presides
over her household and entertains her stream of visitors with the same striking
dignity and grace as she did twenty years ago. At ninety-two Mrs. Andrews, of
Comber, Ireland, [p. 24] preserves her fine figure, and still travels and enjoys
her daily walks. At ninety-two Miss Hannah Swanwick of Chester, 111., [p. 29]
states in youthful handwriting that with her sister aged eighty-six she attends to
the wants of an invalid, and walks up and down stairs many times a day. At
eighty-seven years of age Mrs. Thomas Swanwick, of Manchester, [p. 44] though
partially paralyzed, retains her mental vigor and flow of spirits. In 1898, she
entertained the writer for several hours with her quaint humor and anecdotal
talk. Bearing in mind her great age and her light-hearted disregard of her own
infirmities, one cannot fail to enjoy the humour of the following :
"Once when I was young," she said, "we were to have a party, which was to
us an unusual and eagerly looked for event. My aunt was very old, nearing her
hundredth birthday, which it was hoped she would survive in order to raise the
Swanwick record for longevity. Imagine our vexation when the sudden death of
the old lady prevented our party, and did not even give us the satisfaction of
being able to boast of a hundred year old Swanwick." And this was told with
a merry chuckle which is not the only characteristic that reminds one of her
cousin, the late Mary Hutton of "Fairfield."
In the following genealogical lists the orthodox method of naming the sons first
and the daughters next is not followed, but each person is named in order of seni-
ority. This is not only fitting in these days of the equality of man and woman, but
moreover is due to the women of the Swanwick family, for they, rather than the
men, have kept the family tree alive. In the directories of eighty-three of the
principal English speaking cities of the world, aggregating over nineteen million in-
habitants, the name of Swanwick by actual count occurs only twenty-five times.
In the "Life of Philip Henry" it is recorded that "in the spring and sum-
mer of 1673 ne preached over the parable of the Prodigal Son in about forty
sermons." In these random biographical notes it would be unwise to try and
emulate such a power of expansion. The foregoing remarks must not therefore
be considered an attempt to do more than suggest the subjects of which they
treat. Each reader will from the archives of his family history add incidents
and details that are for obvious reasons unrecorded here.

ROBERT HUTTON OF DUBLIN.
The following list of the descendants of Robert Hutton is founded upon a
genealogical table lent to the writer by J. Barton Hutton, of Trinidad (p. 20), who
compiled the same in 1867, chiefly from details furnished by Mary Hutton, of
Fairfield, (p. 16). The memory of the latter, especially as to details of family
history, was remarkably correct and retentive. Since then, however, no effort
has been made to continue the record, so that the compilation of a complete list
has become very difficult if not impossible. Through the kind assistance, how-
ever, of Mrs. John Couch Adams, Mrs. D. D. Jeremy, Major Armstrong, Barton
Hutton, Darnton Hutton, Henry Dix Hutton, Lucius O. Hutton and others, the
writer has been able considerably to extend the record. The list is not submitted
as final, but in the hope that those possessed of further useful information will
promptly communicate the same to the compiler so that errors may be corrected
and omissions supplied.
Through the researches of Darnton Hutton there have been found wills,
marriage settlements and other records which not only render much assistance
in tracing the family for two generations further back than Robert Hutton himself,
but also supply much additional information as to his collateral relatives. But as
the table has not yet been verified and completed in all its details, especially as
to collateral branches, the publication of it is deferred. At present it is sufficient
to say that the family appears to have been of Dublin in the lifetime of Robert's
father George, and also of his grandfather Thomas, who was married in 1662.
Mary Hutton of " Fairfield " used to say that her father claimed descent from an
officer in Cromwell's army who was granted lands in Ireland. If such was his
descent, he and his wife Mary Swanwick were both of Nonconformist families.
It is fitting for more than one reason that the names of the Huttons and Swan-
wicks should be recorded in the same volume. Agreement in religious opinions
brought them very close together ; and further, not to speak of intermarriages,
the schools carried on by the clerical members of the Hutton family, where the
Swanwick and Hutton boys grew up together, were potent influences in uniting
the two families. The family centre at " Fairfield," Dublin, described at some
length in earlier pages of this volume, drew the two families together.
Such particulars of the family of Sarah Hutton (p. 58) as are here set down
are for the most part gleaned from Mr. Graves' exhaustive " Life " *of that remark-
able man, Sir William Rowan Hamilton, to which most interesting work the reader is
referred for further information concerning one of the greatest men of his time and
also as to the Hutton family in general. He is a standing refutation of the popular
theory that precocious boys never rise to eminence in manhood. At four and a
half the future inventor of Quaternions was reading Latin, Greek and Hebrew.
' Life of Sir Win. Rowan Hamilton. Knt., LL.D., D.C.L., M.R.I. A., Andrews Prof, of Astronomy in Univ.
of Dublin, and Royal Astronomer of Ireland, etc.. etc., by Rev. Robt. P. Graves, M.A.; London, Longmans
Green & Co., 3 vols. (1882.)
At eight he could speak and declaim in Latin. At thirteen he had acquired almost
as many languages as he numbered years. When he was eighteen the Astrono-
mer Royal of Ireland said concerning him, " This young man I do not say will be,
but is the first mathematician of our age." His permanent position in the scien-
tific world like that of John Couch Adams (p. 63) was established before he was
Intermarriage between Huttons and Bruces adds much additional interest to
the tracing of collateral relationships. Major Armstrong's book, "The Bruces
of Airth and their Cadets " (one of an immense collection relative to the Bruce
family in all its branches), is the source from which most of the information on
pages 61, 62 and 63 is obtained.
Although from time to time branches of the Hutton family have removed from
Dublin, it has always been well represented there. It is interesting to note that
by a recent purchase Lucius O. Hutton occupies the same residence as did his
great-uncle Henry Hutton, Lord Mayor of Dublin in 1800.
Lest it may seem to some that the following lists are not so extensive as one
might expect, the reader's attention is called to the fact that many names of Huttons
occur in the Swanwick record. These are not repeated, but references are made
to prior pages on which they may be found. Not only is a saving of expense thus
effected, but interest is added to the record.
At the end of this volume are inserted several blank pages on which might be
conveniently entered from time to time such particulars and biographical notes as
may serve to continue and enrich the record. This would greatly facilitate the
compilation of a third and more extended edition. Here also each possessor of
this volume might set down the names of such of his ancestors and collateral
relatives as are not in the line of descent from either Robert Hutton or Philip
The amount of correspondence, labor and care involved in compiling these
Swanwick and Hutton lists, and in superintending the printing of them has been
enormous. The utmost diligence has been observed in collating the information
contained in the hundreds of letters received, and references have as far as pos-
sible been verified in each case.
Frank Stockton, an American humorist, tells of the tribulations of an artist who
lingered over the painting of a calf that grew as the artist worked. The compiler
has found the same difficulty in bringing his subject exactly down to date and his
his labors to a close. He entreats his readers to reflect upon the magnitude of
the undertaking and freely forgive any errors or shortcomings that may appear.
A list of names without further information would have been easier to accomplish
but in the opinion of most readers such a list would no doubt have been con-
sidered a veritable "valley of dry bones."

JV compliance with your kind request, I have pleasure in forwarding
herewith copies of THE DESCENDANTS OF
PHILIP HENRY (SWANWICK BRANCH J and THE DESCEND-
ANTS OF ROBERT BUTTON.
It has been a source of great satisfaction to the editors — Miss Sarah
Sioanwick, of Manchester, and the undersigned — to find that there is a
general desire among the members of the family to assist in the compilation
of the work as well as to possess it. Copies of the first edition, pub-
lished in 1844, are th e valued possessions of many of the older members,
and, even after the lapse of nearly fifty years, the book is still in
request. The compilers of this second edition would fain believe that their
work will possess interest and value for many years to come. They have
therefore ventured to print an edition much larger than suffices for the
It will be a gratification to the compilers if, when acknowledging the
receipt of the work, you will kindly say whether it has met your expecta-
tions, and also indicate any respects in which it might be amended, added
to or othenvise improved in the event of any supplement or future edition.
The demand for a work of this kind, printed simply for private circu-
lation, is necessarily limited, while the expense of producing it is about the
same as for an extensive edition. Hence the cost of each copy is so
enhanced as to seem at first sight disproportionate .
In order, therefore, to meet the outlay incurred, it will be necessary
to make the list of subscribers as full and complete as possible.
No effort has been spared to communicate with all who might be
expected to be interested in the work, but no doubt there are still many
who have not yet been reached.
You would, therefore, confer a particular favour by bringing the book
under the notice of any who you think might wish to possess a copy of it.

Price, one copy, $2.50 (10 Shillings),
Each additional copy, $1.50 (6 Shillings).
Please remit bv Post Office Order to Jas. Edmund Jones, Toronto, Canada.
The following blank leaves are inserted to facilitate the continuing of the record
and to avoid the disfigurement of the previous printed pages by additions. These
pages will also serve to remind subscribers that in order to perpetuate the roll,
the co-operation of each and all is required.
As to the practical use to be made of this appendix the following suggestions
are submitted : —
Number the pages so that to them reference may conveniently be made from
any previous printed pages where additions, etc., are required.
Enter births, deaths and marriages promptly as they occur.
Insert newspaper cuttings and particularly obituary notices.
Record achievements and other incidents in the lives of members of the family
and keep a general outline of careers.
Some of the space may be used for autographs.
Genealogical lists in tree form may be inserted.
Without ousting the Family Bible a record with original signatures may here
be preserved, which might prove convenient and perhaps afford valuable evidence
in legal proceedings by way of proving inheritance and otherwise.
Family resemblances and marks of heredity may be noted.
Some pages may be used to preserve a list of addresses of relatives.
Many may wish to introduce other lines of descent with which the family have
become connected by intermarriage.
Inside the cover will be found attached a durable envelope which will serve as
a handy temporary receptacle for clippings, unmounted photographs, etc. A
more extensive collection of photo-gravures would much enhance the interest of
any future edition.
These appendices, if punctually and faithfully kepi up to date, will furnish
valuable, if not indispensable material for any future edition.
Some provision, however, must be made for gathering at one centre the infor-
mation contained in them. If, therefore, as events occur, and at any rate every
Christmas-tide, each subscriber will communicate to the compilers a copy of his
entries, valuable assistance will thereby be rendered.
