PREFACE. 

The following account of the family of Bayley of 
Manchester and Hope was originally reprinted from the 
Transactions of the Antiquarian Society of Lancashire and 
Cheshire for i88g, and is now re-issued at the request of 
several members of the family. It has been rearranged 
and is so much enlarged that it is practically a new work. 
The author has to express his thanks to the members of 
the family who have kindly assisted him, and especially to 
Lady Bayley, the widow of Sir Edw'akd Clive Bayley, 
K.C.S.I., Mrs. Edward Bayley, Mrs. Macnamara, 
Mrs. John Arthur Fowler, Mrs. J. A. Harris, Sir 
Steuart Colvin Bayley, K.C.I.E., Mr. Thomas 
Bayley Potter, M.P., the late Dr. W. C. Henry, 
F.R.S., and Mr. Francis S. Bayley. Mr. W. A. 
Shaw, M.A., Mr. T. Cann Hughes, M.A., and Mr. John 
Owen have also rendered assistance. To Sir Steuart 
Bayley the author is also indebted for the opportunity 
of reproducing, as a frontispiece, the view of Hope 
Hall as it existed in the time of Thomas Butterworth 
Bayley.

Thomas Bayley, of Deansgate, Manchester, silk 
weaver. 1 From 1647 to 1679 he acted frequently as an 
office holder under the Court Leet, as officer for mastiff 
dogs and for forestallers and regrators of the market, 
as market looker for white meat, as mise gatherer, and 
in various other capacities. In 165 1 and several later 
years he was one of the jur>'.2 In 1661 he took the 
oath of allegiance, and in 1668 was assessed at is. 4d. 
for his house in Deansgate. He was buried at the 
Collegiate Church, 28th August, 1688. His adminis- 
tration bond, preserved at Chester, is printed below: —

officer for Markett Street Lane, bylaw man for Deansgate, 
and market looker for weights and measures. In 1684 he 
was fined for not keeping in repair the street before his 
house. ^ He died before his father, his death being re- 
ferred to by the Rev. Henry Newcome,^ under date 23rd 
February, 1684-5: "Dan Bayley died this morning." 
He was buried at the Collegiate Church on the following 
day. Administration to his estate was granted 14th 
March, 1684-5, to " Sara Bale)'' widow, relict of the 
deceased." 

Daniel Bayley was married by licence, dated 25 Car. 
n. and filed at Chester,^ to Sarah, daughter of the Rev. 
James Bradshaw, of Darcy Lever. She was baptized at 
Wigan, 15th September, 1650.'^ After the death of her 
husband she appears to have continued his business. She 
is mentioned in the Court Leet Records in 1686 and 
1687, and on 22nd May, i6go, was assessed at o. i. o. for 
the poll tax.^ She was buried in the Collegiate Church, 
30th July, 1695, and her will, dated 26th April, 1695, was 
proved at Chester on 14th August following.

III. 

James Bayley, of Manchester, merchant. He was 
baptized at the Collegiate Church, 4th February, 1673-4. 
In 1703 he was churchwarden.^ In 1721 he was one of 
the undertakers for making the Mersey and Irwell navi- 
gable.^ At the time of the rebelHon, in 1745, he was the 
oldest and one of the most prosperous of the Manchester 
merchants, and, as he was also a Whig, he was amongst 
those to whom, on gth December, 1745, the young Pre- 
tender, then on his retreat from Derby, addressed a 
warrant " to raise from the town £5,000 against the next 
day by four o'clock on pain of military execution." It 
was thought impossible to do this considering the sums, 
amounting to nearly ;^3,ooo, that had been extorted from 
the town before. Next morning, loth December, 1745, a 
number of the inhabitants "waited on the Pretender to 
acquaint him with the impossibility of raising the money, 
and to endeavour to have the payment excused. Upon 
this he mitigated it to ^^2,500, and sent a warrant for that 
sum to be levied upon Manchester and Salford by one 
o'clock ; and while methods were being contrived how to 
procure it, three or four of the rebels seized Mr. James 
Bailey, senior, took him to Secretary Murray at the 
Pretender's lodgings, and told him he must be prisoner 
till it was paid ; and if it was not paid he must go vdth 
them. Mr. Bailey excused himself by saying he was 
betwixt seventy and eighty years old, and, to his remem- 
brance, had not lain a night out of his own bed for two

years, nor could bear travel. He was told, if he could not 
ride, they would endeavour to get him a wheel carriage. 
Mr. Bailey said his confinement was an obstruction to 
the raising of the money, and that if he was at liberty he 
might borrow some. The Secretary brought an answer, 
that the Prince, in consideration of his age, if he would 
give him his word and honour to fetch him ,^2,500 in two 
hours or surrender himself a prisoner, consented he should 
have his liberty so long. This Mr. Bailey agreed to, and 
went to the coffee-house where a great number of the 
inhabitants were; and it being proposed that Mr. Bailey 
and Mr. Dickinson should give promissary notes, payable 
in three months, to such as would lend any money; it 
was agreed to, and the money being thereby procured 
was paid about two o'clock. "^ 

Dr. Byrom's journals give a similiar account of the 
matter, though it has been said by some writers that Mr. 
Bayley was seized by the rebels when on their way to 
Derby, and that he was not released until their retreat. 
Mr. Bayley is sometimes described as of Hope Hall, but 
it is doubtful if he ever resided there. As late as 1744 
Mr. Thomas Bradshaw is given in a list of ley payers as 
the occupant of Hope.^ There is no doubt that for the 
greater part of his life he resided in Bayley's Court, 
Market Place. His house there is no longer standing, 
but Mr. John Owen saw it in 1864, and has kindly given 
me this description: "At the bottom of this Court is a 
tolerably large house of brick, three stories in height,

exclusive of the cellar, the stories being divided by a couple 
of plain stone string-courses. The front has five windows 
to each story, except the lower one, which has the door- 
way in the centre under a round arch ; the windows have 
flat arches of brick, and appear to be twice as long as 
broad. In some of them are the original framework, 
having a central mullion or stanchion with a transom in 
the upper part. The eaves project considerably, sup- 
ported by brackets, and immediately underneath is a 
border of ornamental plaisterwork. The base of the 
building, to a height of about three feet, is of stone and 
weathered. On the leaden spout which is against the face 
of the building is the following inscription, I-^S 1707, 
the initials of James and Sarah Bayley. The entrance 
leads to a square oak staircase, and the internal walls 
are of timber and plaister." James Bayley died on the 
6th April, 1753, and was buried in the north aisle of the 
chancel of the Collegiate Church. 

James Bayley married on 3rd January, 1698, Sarah, 
daughter of Samuel Kirkes, of Chester. Mrs. Bayley 
was buried 8th January, 1719-20, at the Collegiate 
Church. 

The children of James and Sarah Bayley were: — 

1. Daniel, of whom presently. 

2. Samuel, bap. i6th December, 1701; bur. at Collegiate 
Church, 4th January, 1701-2. 

3. James, of whom below (Pedigree C). 

4. John, bap. 23rd February, 1707-8; bur. ist July, 1709. 

5. Sarah, born 12th May, bap. 22nd May, 1710; married 
4th March, 1734, at the Collegiate Church, to John Touchet, 
of Manchester, merchant, and one of the trustees of Cross 
Street Chapel. From this marriage descended, amongst

IV. 

Daniel Bayley, of Hope Hall, eldest son of James 
and Sarah Bayley, was born 13th October, 1699. He 
seems to have been at an early age associated with his 
father in business, and in 1721 was one of the under- 
takers for making the rivers Mersey and Irwell navigable. 
It is probable that he retired while still a young man. 
In 1732, when he was described as "gentleman," he was 
appointed a trustee of Cross Street Chapel, where he was 
a regular attendant, and remained in the trust until his 
death. In June, 1749, Daniel Bayley went to reside at 
Hope Hall, in the parish of Eccles, a property which had 
belonged to his distant kinsfolk the Bradshaws, and a 
few years later rebuilt it on the old foundations. He is 
said to have been a deputy-lieutenant for the county,^ 
and he served occasionally as a grand juryman at the 
Lancaster assizes. He took an interest in science, and 
under his auspices and on his estate Samuel Smethurst 
and Peter Clare observed in 1761 the transit of Venus. 
Eight years later the hall was again placed at their 
disposal for a similar purpose by Daniel Bayley's son. 
Daniel Bayley was an energetic Dissenter; his name

appears first of those appended to the circular calling the 
first general meeting for the foundation of the Warring- 
ton Academy, and he gave ;^ioo to be held on the same 
trusts as the ;f500 which had been given by his wife's 
grandmother, Ann Butterworth, for binding apprentice 
the children of poor Protestant Dissenting ministers and 
decayed tradesmen. He died 14th May, 1764, and is 
said to have been buried in a vault he had made in Hart's 
Hill Meadow, behind Hope Hall, and to have been sub- 
sequently interred in the family vault in Eccles Church. 
In opposition to this it is stated by Sir Thomas Baker-'- 
that he was buried in Cross Street Chapel, where "the 
words on the stone are not 'In memory of,' &c., but 
'Here lie the remains of,' &c." 

Daniel Bayley was twice married. His first wife, 
whom he married in 1717,^ was Elizabeth, daughter and 
coheiress of Nathaniel Gaskell, of Manchester. Mrs. 
Bayley's two sisters married respectively Hugh, eleventh 
Lord Sempill, and Richard Chve, M.P., of Styche. Mrs. 
Clive's son, Robert, afterwards the celebrated Lord Clive, 
lived for several years with Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Bayley, 
at Manchester, and was trained and educated by Mr. 
Bayley as though he had been his own son. At the end 
of 1728 the little fellow, then only two years old, had a 
dangerous attack of fever, on which occasion Mr. Bayley 
wrote to Styche: "Thank God, I do now inform you 
that Bob continues better, and is in a very likely way to 
recover. We hope that the crisis of the fever was on

Saturday last, about noon, it having abated ever since. 
His exceeding patience is also exchanged for as eminent 
a degree of crossness, which we take as a good omen of 
his mending. I am writing this close to his bedside, and 
he is crying with the greatest impatience for me to be on 
the bed with him ; nor will he be quiet one moment, with 
all the line words I can give him, which now makes me 
conclude abruptly." Young Clive had a relapse, but by 
January he was well again, and " with some reluctance 
suffered his Aunt Bay to go to Chapel." The chapel here 
mentioned is the Presbyterian, now Unitarian, Chapel in 
Cross Street, Manchester, at which the Bayley family 
were at that time regular attendants, and of which 
Nathaniel Gaskell, Clive's grandfather, was one of the 
founders, and is named first in the earliest trust deed. In 
1732 Mr. Bayley wrote: "I hope I have made a little 
further conquest over Bob, and that he regards me in 
some degree as well as his Aunt Bay. He has just had a 
new suit of clothes, and promises by his reformation to 
deserve them. I am satisfied that his fighting (to which 
he is out of measure addicted) gives his temper a fierce- 
ness and imperiousness, and he flies out upon trifling 
occasion ; for this reason I do what I can to suppress the 
hero, that I may help forward the valuable qualities of 
meekness, benevolence, and patience. I assure you, sir, 
it is a matter of concern to us, as it is of importance to 
himself, that he may be a good and virtuous man, to 
which no care of ours shall be wanting." Plassy showed 
that the worthy uncle was unable to "suppress the hero" 
in his young charge. Long afterwards, when Clive was 
far away in India, his thoughts would turn back to his

pleasant Lancashire home, to the unpretending chapel 
frequented by his Presbyterian relatives, to his juvenile 
encounters and battles, and to all the other circumstances 
that made him sigh for what, in one of his letters, he calls 
"dear, delightful Manchester." In another letter he 
says, " If I could be so far blest as to revisit again my 
own country, but more especially Manchester, the centre 
of all my wishes, and all that I could hope for or desire 
would be presented before me in one view." Mr. Bayley 
lived long enough to see Clive the most famous man of 
his age. Mrs. Bayley died 26th February, 1734-5, in her 
thirty-fifth year, and on the 12th April following her only 
child, Elizabeth, died, aged two. Mother and child were 
buried in the Collegiate Church, Manchester. 

Mr. Daniel Bayley's second wife was Anne, daughter 
and coheiress (with her sisters. Lady Hoghton and Mrs. 
Joddrell, afterwards the Hon. Mrs. George Sempill) of 
Thomas Butterworth, of Manchester, gentleman, by his 
wife, Frances, daughter of Sir Robert Dukinfield, baronet. 
Mr. Butterworth's father, Thomas Butterworth, was a 
leading Manchester merchant, and had married Ann 
Crowther, a niece of Sir Edward Mosley, of Hulme, 
knight, and a cousin of Sir Robert Booth, lord chief jus- 
tice of the common pleas in Ireland. Mrs. Bayley was 
born 25th March, 1713, and was married 24th June, 
1736. At her marriage she had not been dealt with 
by father so generously as her sister Lady Hoghton, 
who had a marriage portion of ;^8,ooo, but her father^ 
who died in 1745, by his will dated 25th December, 
1744, made further provision for her, as is shown by 
the following abstracts: "To his daughter Anne wife of

Mrs. Bayley survived her husband thirty years. In 
her later years she lived in a house at the corner of St. 
Ann's Square (on the site now occupied by Heywood's 
Bank), which had been her father's. Her stately manners 
made such an impression on the youttiful mind of Samuel 
Hibbert Ware, the antiquary, whose father lived opposite 
to Mrs. Bayley, that in after years whenever he met any 
severe-looking old lady he would style her " Madam 
Bayley."^ She died at St. Ann's Square, 3rd March, 
1795, aged eighty-two, and was buried at Cross Street. 
Daniel and Anne (Butterworth) Bayley had issue: — 

1. James, born 5th April, 1737; died 3rd July, 1746, aged 
ten; bur. at Cross Street. 

2. Frances, born 15th April, 1738; died 3rd May, 1742, 
aged five; bur. at Cross Street.

V. 

Thomas Butterworth Bayley, the only survivor of 
the children of Daniel Bayley, was born at Manchester, 
20th June, 1744, and was educated at Edinburgh Univer- 
sity. Shortly after succeeding his father, he was sworn 
a justice of the peace for the county of Lancaster, and 
he threw himself into his magisterial work with great 
energy. At the early age of twenty-four he was appointed 
high sheriff, and for a number of years he acted as chair- 
man of quarter sessions, and as receiver of duchy rents. 
He was elected F.R.S., i8th February, 1773. In 1774 
he offered himself as a candidate for the borough of 
Liverpool, but did not go to the poll.^ 

Of course so prominent a magistrate could not escape 
the Rev. Thomas Seddon when he was looking round for 
victims to impale in the Characteristic Strictures. Con- 
sequently he appears in that interesting work, published 
in 1779, as follows : — 

"Thomas B. B — ley, Esq., Hope. 
The figure of Hope. 
"Among the various attempts of this artist we have 
not seen one tolerable performance. Had he modestly

confined himself to single figures he might probably have 
been more successful; to represent numbers is infinitely 
superior to his powers. We cannot, however, give him 
much credit for this figure ; the attitude is too presump- 
tive for Hope and the cable too slender for the weight of 
the anchor." 

And in a foot note Seddon says: "His ambition has 
led him to offer himself a candidate for several boroughs 
in the county, but these and many other examples of 
Quixotism, with a variety of curious anecdotes, will be 
particularly described in the history of his life, which is 
speedily to be published." Seddon refers to him again 
in ironical terms in the dedication of a seriiion printed in 
1780; but what was the nature of the quarrel between 
the clergyman and magistrate I have not been able 
to ascertain. 1 Bayley took part in all the patriotic 



lit is interesting to compare the three following dedications to 
Buttervvorth Bayley: — 

"To Thomas Butterworth Bayley, Esq.; High-Sheriff of the County 
Palatine of Lancaster, the following Essay is with the highest Respect, 
for his Distinguished Abilities, and the sincerest Esteem, for his Amiable 
Character, inscribed by his affectionate, and most obedient Servant 

"Thomas Percival." 
(Percival's Experiments and Observations on Water, 1769.) 

"To Thomas Butterworth Bayley, Esq., of Hope, 
"Fellow of the Royal Society.

condescended to receive this my first Essay under your Protection. And 
all who are honoured with your Friendship, and are acquainted with your 
superior knowledge in polite and useful Learning, in which you have 
justly included the Science of Numbers, will be sensible of my Happiness 
in being thus permitted to address you. 

"Were my Abilities, Sir, equal to my Wishes, I could with Pleasure 
dilate on those excellent Qualifications, adorned with the utmost Good- 
nature and Humanity, which have rendered your Character so con- 
spicuous. But, as I well know I should fail in the attempt, the only Use 
I can make of this opportunity, is, to testify my Regard to so generous a

efforts in the neighbourhood, and no scheme for the 
amehoration of the condition of the people was carried 
out without his assistance. In 1782 he was Heutenant- 
colonel of the Manchester MiHtary Association. In 1797 
he took an active part in raising the Manchester and 
Salford Volunteers, subscribing twenty guineas towards

undeserving, have received at your Hands, and which I shall always

"To introduce a publication of a political nature to the world, under 
the protection of a Great ]\Ian, is to ensure it a general reading by the 
Publick. — I therefore humbly dedicate the following Declamation to my 
most worthy Friend, Mr. Bayley, — trusting on his neighbourly affection 
to support me against the malignity of partial Commentators, or the 
attacks of dissatisfied Fanatics ; and I am the more inclined to confide in 
this expectation, from the many observations made upon his publick, as 
well as private Conduct, both which declare his sincere attachment to the 
King and dutiful attention to the privileges of the Crown. 

" As a Magistrate, — his Worship is so strenuous a defender of the Laws, 
that even those which are generally esteemed lenient, — when dealt out 
with his spirited exertion, — have in their consequences, — by moderate 
Men, — unwittingly been called severe. 

"As a private Gentleman, he is so indefatigable to rectify every 
Grievance, that even the shadow of complaint cannot escape him, for with 
becoming activity he investigates the cupboard of every cottager in his 
neighbourhood, — with a manifest intention to suppress Luxury in its 
infancy, knowing by Family experience, that AEs in presenti perfectum 
format, and how difficult it is to soar above the loathsome Habitation of a 
Cellar, — without Temperance and Industry. 

"From the above considerations I am persuaded, Mr. Bayley will not 
be displeased with this, tho' hasty attempt to vindicate the rights of 
rvlajesty, and to give evidence against the Stratagems of Treason, 
especially as it will discover to him a wish, — to follow his own laudable 
example of extracting another Name from deep obscurity. 

" I am with much Gratitude, for the unmerited favours Mr. Bayley has 
so repeatedly conferred upon me, his most oblig'd and very humble 
Servant,

the initial expenses/ and becoming colonel of the regi- 
ment on its embodiment. The work in which he took 
the greatest interest, however, was the improvement of 
prisons. An earnest disciple of John Howard, he became 
convinced of the necessity for a prison on the modern 
plan to replace the old House of Correction, which was 
then in a disgraceful condition. With characteristic 
energy he overcame all opposition to his project; a site 
was selected, and in 1787 Mr. Bayley laid the first stone 
of the New Bayley Prison. ^ In 1790 the place was 
finished, but when, as chairman of quarter sessions, Mr. 
Bayley charged the grand jury, he had to speak of the 
death of Howard only a few weeks before the completion 
of one of the earliest of the prisons constructed in entire 
accordance with his views. The name of the prison 
has excited some discussion ; the question in dispute is 
whether it is called the New Bailey after the Old Bailey 
in London, or whether it owed its name as well as 
existence to Mr. Butterworth Bayley. That during Mr. 
Bayley's lifetime the name was usually spelled as he 
spelled his name there can be no doubt, but it is equally 
certain that the next chairman of quarter sessions, who 
did not share Mr. Bayley's political views, was dis- 
inclined to allow the honour of the name to his Whig 
predecessor, and always insisted that the gaol was named 
after the prison in London and not after Mr. Bayley.^ 

In 1794, the grand jury, of which Mr. Bayley was 
foreman, requested the high sheriff to make efforts for

the amelioration of the condition of the debtors in 
Lancaster Gaol.^ In 1796 Mr. Bayley was elected 
president of the newly-formed Manchester Board of 
Health.- Working on the lines of a plan drawn up at 
his request by Dr. John Ferriar, the board established 
the House of Recovery, an institution now amalgamated 
with the Royal Infirmary. Mr. Bayley was one of the 
first vice-presidents of the Literary and Philosophical 
Society,^ and was the first promoter of the Manchester 
Humane Society in 1791; and when, in 1787, a society 
was formed in Manchester for the purpose of effecting 
the abolition of the slave trade, he and his mother were 
amongst the subscribers, and Mr. Bayley was elected a 
member of the first committee of the society."* It is 
worth mentioning that so early as 1788 Mr. Bayley 
advocated the substitution of paid constables for the 
then universal honorary constables.-^ 

Mr. Ba3dey's leisure was devoted to agriculture, and 
it is to him that we owe the elms at Hope Hall. He 
was one of the founders of the Manchester x^gricultural 
Society, and was awarded, by that society, several pre- 
miums ; and he was an honorary member of the Board of 
Agriculture in London. Thomas B. Bayley was the author 
of several pamphlets, principally on agricultural topics, a 
list of which will be found in the appendix. Mr. Bayley's 
religious beliefs were broad. He was from 1778 to 1802 a

trustee of Cross Street Chapel,^ and he was also a vice- 
president of the Warrington Academy. ^ It is related that 
on the occasion of the presentation of colours to the 
regiment, of which Mr. Bayley was colonel, there was a 
religious service at St. Ann's. It happened to be St. 
Matthew's Day, when the Athanasian Creed is appointed 
to be read in churches. Mr. Hall, in deference to the 
Presbyterian colonel, omitted this portion of the service, 
an action which lost Mr. Hall the chaplaincy of the 
Collegiate Church, which became vacant about that 
time.^ He was an original seatholder and trustee 
of St. John's, Deansgate, the first incumbent of which 
was an earnest Swedenborgian.** Mr. Bayley was also 
an attendant at Eccles Church. Charles Hulbert, in his 
Memoirs of an Eventful Life, says : "I remember with 
reverence that w^orthy magistrate, chairman of the 
Salford quarter sessions, Thomas Butterworth Bayley, 
Esq. The first sermon for a Sunday school that I ever 
heard was at Eccles Church, when the justice bare- 
headed took his place at the church door with his box in 
his hand, repeatedly solicitin-g the congregation as it 
passed him, 'To remember the poor,' 'Do remember the 
poor.'" 

Thomas Butterworth Bayley died, from mortification 
of the bowels, at Buxton, on 24th June, 1802, and was 
buried at Eccles, and in the parish church there is

his services as chayge d'affaires, during the absence of the 
Enghsh ambassador, were also rewarded by the knighthood 
of the Hanoverian Guelphic Order. Sir Daniel, some years 
after his father's death, sold the Hope estate, and had hence- 
forward little connection with his native county, but he was 
a member of the Manchester Agricultural Society, and a 
justice of the peace and deputy-lieutenant for the county

I have heard them rated at 100,000 roubles per annum, including the 
Hanoverian agency ; this situation is held by Sir Daniel Bayley, Knt., 
which he obtained through the interest of Mr. Samuel Thornton, his late 
partner in London. The society of these few families is limited to each

residence at Trinity College, Cambridge, and in 1800 took 
the degree of B.A. and was first prizeman of the junior and 
in the following year of the senior bachelors. He was then 
pronounced by Porson to be the first Greek scholar of his 
standing in England. In October, 1802, he was elected 
fellow of his college, and became M.A. in the following year 
and D.D. in 1824. He was ordained by Dr. Majendie, 
bishop of Chester, whose chaplain he became. He shortly 
afterwards became preceptor to Mr. W. E. Tomline, son of 
the bishop of Lincoln, and received from the bishop the 
rectory of Stilton, Huntingdonshire, 1804. In 1805 he was 
appointed sub- dean of Lincoln, and prebend of Crackpool 
St. Mary, in Lincoln Cathedral, and was installed 5th July, 
1805. In 1806 he became vicar of Hibaldstow, Lincolnshire, 
and in 181 1 rector of Messingham with Bottesford. On 
going to Lincoln Bayley found that one of the towers was 
unsafe, and had it taken down; and, as the other tower was 
now thought to be out of place, that also was removed. The 
alterations caused considerable ill feeling towards the new 
sub-dean. Mr. Bayley also had numerous monuments that 
disfigured the walls of the cathedral removed, and placed in 
a small chapel, thus restoring some of its pristine beauty to 
the interior of the cathedral. Acting on Dr. Bayley's advice, 
the Chapter sold, from the Cathedral Library, some Caxtons 
to Dibdin for a very small sum, and with the proceeds pur- 
chased "more useful" books. Dr. Bayley established a joint- 
stock library in Lincoln, and in 181 3 founded some schools 
on the Madras system. At Messingham he made numerous 
improvements and alterations in the church. He purchased 
from the Manchester Collegiate Church, then undergoing 
extensive "improvements," some stained-glass windows, 
Avhich he placed in Messingham Church. In 1823 he became 
archdeacon of Stow, and in 1826 rector of Westmeon with 
Privet, Hampshire, resigning at the same time his living at 
Messingham. Simday was the favourite day of the Hamp- 
shire villagers for playing cricket, and this desecration of

the Lord's Day Dr. Baylcy endeavoured in his own parish to 
summarily put a stop to ; but this aroused the anger of the 
parishioners. He then tried other methods; he estabHshed a 
Sunday afternoon service, but this only delayed Sunday 
playing until a little later in the day, as the farm boys 
brought their bats under their smocks and left them in the 
porch during service, after which they proceeded to the 
village green and began playing. Dr. Bayley then induced 
the farmers to allow their labourers several hours on the week- 
days for the game, and he had the satisfaction of thus having 
abolished what, though Sunday recreation had been by no 
means discouraged by the early English reformers, he con- 
sidered to be a profanation of the Christian Sabbath. In 
1828 he exchanged the sub-deanery of Lincoln for a canonry 
of Westminster. He died 12th August, 1844, and was bur. 
at Westmeon. The following passage from a MS. note by 
Archdeacon Bonney, in a copy of Archdeacon Bayley's 
"Charge," formerly in the possession of Mr. J. E. Bailey, is 
worth quoting: " In person he [Dr. Bayley] was of the middle 
size, inclining at one time to corpulency. His countenance 
was full and expressive of benevolence; his manner good- 
humoured, sprightly, and friendly, mixed often with a vein 
of drollery which enlivened the spirits of his companion. 
He was earnest in his rehgion without affectation, and a true 
member of the Church of England, spending large sums out 
of his own income in her cause, particularly towards refitting 
of the church at Messingham and a new church in his parish 
of Westmeon, which was nearly completed at the time of 
his decease. In the last years of his life he became blind 
and infirm, and died of natural decay without a pang or 
sigh." Archdeacon Bayley married, at Eccles, 17th June, 
1S07, Hannah, second daughter of James Touchet, of Broom 
House, to whom he was related, her grandmother having 
been a daughter of James Bayley, senior. Mrs. Bayley 
died, without issue, 17th June, 1839, and was- bur. at 
Westmeon.

THE BAY LEY FAMILY. 29 

VII, 

Sir Edward Clive Bavley, K.C.S.I., CLE., only 
surviving son of Edward Clive Bayley, was born at 
St. Petersburg, 17th October, 1821, and, after having 
distinguished himself at Haileybury, entered the Bengal 
Civil Service in 1842. He commenced his official career 
at Allahabad, and subsequently held appointments at 
Meerut, Bulandshahr, and Rohtak. On the annexation 
of the Panjab, he was appointed a deputy-commissioner, 
and entered on his duties at Gujarat in 1849. In the 
same year he became under-secretary to the Government 
of India in the Foreign Department. In 1851 he was 
appointed deputy-commissioner of the Kangra district of 
the Punjab, but in 1854 ill-health compelled him to take 
furlough in England. He was called to the Bar in 1857, 
and, shortly after the outbreak of the Mutiny, returned 
to India, and was ordered in September, 1857, to Allaha- 
bad, where he acted as one of the under-secretaries in Sir 
John P. Grant's provisional government, and afterwards 
as magistrate at Allahabad. In 1859 he was appointed 
judge in the Futtehgurh district, and afterwards was 
judicial commissioner at Lucknow, and judge at Agra. 
For a short time he acted as foreign secretary to the 
Government of India, and in March, 1862, became home 
secretary. This post he filled until 1872, when he was 
appointed to a temporary' vacancy in the council. In 
the following year he became an ordinary member of the 
Supreme Council, which post he filled until his retire- 
ment from the civil service in April, 1S78. He was 
created a K. C.S.I, on January ist, 1877. During his 



30- THE B A YLEY FAMILY: _ 

long career in India, Sir E. Clive Bayley was a devoted 
friend of the natives, and in all the different posts he 
held their welfare was his chief object. During his 
leisure hours he studied deeply the history of the people : 
their traditions, their literature, their arts, and their 
archaeology, and became the chief authority on the 
numismatic history of India. Sir Edward Clive Bayley 
was five times elected president of the Bengal Asiatic 
Society, and was for five years vice-chancellor of the 
University of Calcutta. Sir Clive Bayley died at Wil- 
mington Lodge, Keymer, on the 30th April, .1884.

32 THE BAYLEY FAMILY. 



B.— WILLIAM BUTTERWORTH BAYLEY AND 
HIS DESCENDANTS. 

VI. 

William Butterworth Bayley (twelfth child of 
Thomas Butterworth Bayley, F.R.S.),born 3rd November, 
1781, and baptized at his grandmother's house in Man- 
chester, 7th January, 1782. He was educated at Winwick 
and Eton, and went to Trinity College, Cambridge 1798. 
On 18th June, 1799, he sailed for Bengal, having obtained 
an appointment in the Bengal Civil Service; and, on 
reaching India, was entered as a member of the new 
College of Fort William, which Lord Wellesley had just 
established for the education of the Indian civil servants. 
Of the College of Fort William Mr. Bayley was one of 
the most distinguished alumni. In 1800 he took a second 
prize in the third class for Hindustani, and in 1802 
proved his talent for languages by being in the first class 
in Persian. On completing his college course he was 
selected by the Governor-General for the confidential 
duties of his own office. Here, in company with Met- 
calfe and others of the cleverest of the young civil 
servants, Mr. Bayley learned the art of government under 
Lord Wellesley's eye. He decided to confine himself to 
the routine of judicial and revenue work. In 1805 he 
was made deputy-registrar of the Sudder Court, and in 
1807 interpreter to the commission for regulating the 
government and land settlement of the North-Western 
Provinces. In 1809 he was appointed judge at Dacca 
Jalalpur; in 1810, judge at Bardwan; and, in 1814, 



THE BAYLEY FAMILY. J3 

fourth judge of the Provincial Court of Appeal, first at 
Bareilly and then at Dacca. In 1814 he entered the 
secretariat as secretary to the Revenue and Judicial 
departments, and in i8ig became chief secretary to the 
Government, in which capacity he was of the greatest 
service to Lord Hastings. In 1822 he temporarily filled 
a seat at the council, and in 1825 became a regular 
member of the Supreme Council. In 1828 he filled the 
office of governor-general of India from March 13th to 
4th July, when he became president of the Board of 
Trade. He returned to England April, 183 1, and retired 
from the Company's service ist May, 1834. Mr. Bayley 
was elected a director of the East India Company 23rd 
July. 1833, and remained a director until 1854, i" which 
year he declined nomination as a permanent director. 
He was deputy-chairman in 1839, and chairman of the 
court in 1840. Mr. W. B. Bayley died at St. Leonards- 
on-Sea, 20th May, i860. Mr. Bayley's work, though 
perhaps not so conspicuous as that of his contemporaries, 
Lord Metcalfe or Jenkins, was no less important, and it 
was due entirely to his unobtrusive modesty that he 
received no titular distinction or reward for his services. 
William Butterworth Bayley, married, February, 1809, 
at Calcutta, Anne Augusta, daughter of William Jackson, 
registrar of the Supreme Court, Calcutta, and solicitor to 
the Hon. East India Company. She was born January,

Bayley, cotton merchant, was riding towards home, on the Rusholme 
Road, he was suddenly entangled by a rope, stretched across the 
road, for the purpose of robbery. His mare was upon a short canter, and 
he was in a moment swept off her back, and instantly seized by four men, 
who told him if he made any resistance they would shoot him. They 
proceeded to rifle him of his property, and told him to proceed and make 
no alarm, or his life should pay for it. He endeavoured in vain to recover 
his mare, but she found her way home alone, about six o'clock next 
morning."

NOTES 



1. AutJioriiies. — This pedigree of the Bayley family is founded 
to some extent on a MS. pedigree compiled by the Rev. 
Joseph Hunter, from the information of Mr. Gamaliel Lloyd, 
and now in the British Museum (Add. MSS. 24, 458, f. 66), 
which has been recently printed by the Harleian Society, 
and with a few additions by the late Mr. Croston in his 
edition of Baines's History of Lancashire. Additional facts as 
to the early generations are taken from the MSS. of Mr. 
John Owen, from an unpublished pedigree compiled by Mr. 
John Eglington Bailey, from Mr. J. Fred Beever's paper in 
Local Gleanings, i. 103, 166, from the Manchester Court Leet 
Records and Constable's Accounts, and from a pedigree in 
the Piccope MSS. in Chetham's Library. The facts con- 
cerning the later generations have been obtained from the 
members of the family who are named in the preface. 

2. Origin of the Family. — I have been unable to trace the 
family beyond the seventeenth century. The name was by no 
means uncommon in Lancashire and Cheshire at that time. 
A family tradition, dating apparently from the date of 
Thomas Butterworth Bayley's stay in Edinburgh, that the 
Bayleys were descended from a cadet of the Baillies of 
Linlithgowshire, does not seem to have any foundation in 
fact, the family having been established in Manchester long 
before the date assigned for the migration. Mr. J. E. Bailey 
was of opinion that Thomas Bayley, the first known member 
of the family, was a native of the neighbourhood of Black- 
burn, but I do not know on what authority he based his 
opinion. It is worth mentioning that the unusual spelling of 
the name is not a recent adoption, but has always been used 
by the members of the family since the time of Thomas 
Bayley, who died in 1688.
