Sir John Wittewronge, Bart., of Stantonbury, Bucks, and Botham- 
sted, Herts, was married thrice. His first wife was the second 
daughter of Sir Thomas Myddelton, of Chirk Castle, Denbigh, and 
the marriage was celebrated at the chapel of the castle, which was 
the family residence of the Myddeltons. This lady died of small-pox 
on the 4th April, 1 639, and, according to the Wittewronge Memoirs 
partially published in the History of Hertfordshire by Clutterbuck, 
'' lyeth buried in the church of West-ham in the same grave with my 
father." It is curious, however, that on the brass tablet on the north 
waU of the north transept of the Harpenden Parish Church it is 
stated that Mary, late wife of Sir John Wittewronge, Bart., and 
daughter of Sir Thomas Myddelton, Bart., of Chirk Castle, Denbigh, 
was interred in the vault at Harpenden. 

This is most probably erroneous. It is doubtful if at the time of 
his first wife's death Sir John Wittewronge had bought the Manor of 
Bothamsted, and from the memoirs of that gentleman it woidd appear 
that his first wife died in London. From the nature of the disease 
from which death resulted it is not likely that the body would be 
removed fi*om the vault at West Ham when the family took possession 
of the Bothamsted estate; nor is it likely that such a careful 
chronicler of family events, as Sii* John Wittewronge undoubtedly 
was, would have omitted to state if such were the case. 

Sir John's third wife was Catherine, daughter of Maurice Thomson, 
of London. This lady died on the 10th of April, 1659, and "lyeth 
buried in my vault at Harpenden by my mother and my second 
wife." 

Tliis interment the brass tablet fails altogether to mention, and it 
would appear that the name of the first wife had been inserted by 
mistake m the place of the third. It is probable that the first member 
of the family to be buried at Harpenden was Jacob, the first son by 
the second wife, who died at Bothamsted on March 7th, 1645, and 
" lyeth buried in my vault in Harpenden Church." 

A 



'2 THE HERTS OEXEAL0OI8T. 

A further error in the same tablet has been ]^)ointed out by 
Mr. Oussans. John Bennet, of Bothamsted, Esq., who died June 
14th, 1763, and his sister Mar}', widow of Thomas Lawes, Esq., who 
died Dec. 14th, 1816, are described as the great-grandson and great- 
granddaughter of Sir John "Wittewronge, Bart. These should both 
be described as the great-g^eat-grandchildren of the first Sir John 
Wittewronge.

In compliance with an Ordinance made in 1597, afterwards 
embodied in the 70th Canon of 1603, every parish was to purchase a 
parchment volume, into which the entries horn the old paper books 
were to be fairly and legibly copied. Unfortunately, in most cases, 
the old paper originals have disappeared but Mr. Chester Waters 
states,* and gives instances to prove, that in some few parishes where 
the orig^al paper books are in existence, it has been discovered by 
careful collation, that the original entries are often abbreviated in the 
copy. 

A glance at these transcribed copies shows them generally to have 
been the work of some derk or scrivener, and beautifully written for 
the most part. Probably the scribe's task was one of difficulty, and 
he may have been unable in many cases to decipher or make order out 
of the paper orig^als. 

According to the above-mentioned ordinance every page of the 
transcribed register ought to have been signed by the minister and 
churchwardens for the year in which the copy was made. But this 
was not invariably done and we are left in the dark as to how far 
any examination or revision of the copy was carried out. The 
uniformity of these transcribed registers is in itself calculated to arouse 
doubt and a few more corrections than one generally finds in the 
scribe's handwriting would have been some elight evidence that he 
had re-read his copy. Possibly he did not like to mar the appearance 
of his work by any unsightly erasures or alterations. 

Cases in which one is able to check even a small portion of a 
transcribed register are rare, and it is to be hoped that the example 
which is given here, is an exception, otherwise our confidence in 
transcribed registers prior to 1603 must be considerably shaken and it 
behoves genealog^ts not to place too g^at reliance on the absolute 
literal accuracy of entries found therein. 

Amongst the few annual transcripts sent in to the Beg^stry of the 
Archdeacon of St. Albans prior to 1 603 is one for St. Peter's parish in 
St. Albans for the year from Michaelmas 1571 to Michaelnias 1572.

It is duly signed by the Yicar, and seeing that it contains an entry of 
the christening of a son of the Yicar, it is reasonable to suppose that 
before signing the document he would satisfy himself of its accuracy. 
A comparison of this document with the corresponding portion of 
the transcribed early register now remaining at St. Peter's is 
instructive. For convenience of reference the two records are here 
given in parallel columns.

knight, was killed at the Second Battle of St. Albans 1471 {Will in 
P. C. C, Watty* 5). Margai*et, a daughter of Sir Humphrey Bourchier, 
man-ied to her second husband Sir Thomas Bryan & was the mother of 
the Sir Francis Bryan mentioned in the above Proceeding.

A pedigree of Ferrers printed in an Appendix to the Visitations of 
Hertfordsliire, published oy the Harleian Society, states that George 
Ferrers married Jane daughter of John Southcote. Amongst the 
Marriage Licenses from the Faculty Office (also printed by the 
Hai-ieian Society), under date 5 Mch. 1545-6, occurs the entry 
** George Feres of the King's household & Jane Sowthtrote [«<<?] of 
the town of S* Albans." 

George Ferrers appears to have married a third wife, Margaret 
Preston, widow, of S^ Albans, (see Bp. of London Marr. Lie. 26 riov. 
1569) at St Albans Abbey on the 29«» Nov. 1569.

wodo, recites that one Wm. Salford of the same town gent, on the 
2"^ October last, came to a certain ground or pasture of the com- 
plainants called Arkeley in the holding of one Wm. Preston & 
distrained six kine being great in calf & seven "bolokf there beyng 

§a8tor}'ng of the seid Willm Preston " & ** theym enchased into a 
:oren Counte & ther wrongfully thaym impounded " ; that the com- 
plainant seeing her tenant wrongfully vexed, came to the dwelling 
house of said Salford & reasonably moved him to deliver up the 
s^ beasts, but he ** nothynge regardyng god yo' lawes ne good cosyens 
in f orsibull man' leyde his hande oppon yo' seid oratrix & w^ the other

again distrained three colts from the same ground. The complaint is 
a very poor widow, whilst the defendant is a man of great substance & 
power in the countay. 

The Answer of Salford is, that the land where the taking of the 
beasts is supposed, is and was the freehold of the Abbot of S^ Albans 
& the complainant had the land for certain years paying yearly a 
certain rent, & he (Salford) as bailifi of the Abbot distrained the beasts 
for rent behind, upon which distress the said Wm. Preston '^ sued a 
repleg fac " against s^ Salford '' within the libertie & seignorye of 
Bigge and hath declared according to Ids writte the whiche accion is 
yet hangyng." Moreover s^ Joan is a woman of good substance & 
** hable to sue by thordre of the c5en lawe."

is one described in the official index as " Portfolio 19/12. A Valor of 
certain manors purchased from the Crown. Dorset and Hertford.

is not stated m the document, it is easily ascertainable from other 
sources. 

The Valor so far as relates to the county of Hertford is as follows :

Item my howse in London iiij/«. 

Kef erring to the Feet of Fines alrea dy printed in this Magazine, we 
find that in Hilary Term 34 Hen. YIII. (1542-3), John E%d$ purchased 
a moiety of a third part of the manors of Aldbury and Thyscote from 
Oeo. Denham esq & Alice bis wife and in Easter Term 36 Henry YIII. 
(1544) John Hyde esq purchased a third part of the manor of Albury & 
of lands in Albury & the advowson of the Chantry in Albury Church, 
from Thos. Dynham esq. In the following term John Hyde gent & 
Margt. his wife & Thos. Hyde son & heir apparent of said John are 
found disposing of the manor of Gledseys & other property to John 
Gylle gent & Margaret his wife. About the same penod John Hyde 
made further purchases of property in Albury & Tyscote & the neigh- 
bourhood from Thos. Babyngton esq. 

An Inquisition post mortem of John Hyde for the county of Hertford 
doQs not appear to be in existence, but that for Dorset may be found 
at the Eecord Office under the 37**^ year of Henry Vm. No. 28. It 
was taken at Bridport on the 24^ Oct. 1545 & sets out the Dorsetshire 
property fully & names Stephen Hyde & Richard Hyde as tenant of 
tenements in Hyde, Waldyche & Loders & states that John Hyde died 
20^ Sept. 1545 & Thomas Hyde was his son & next heir & was aged 
26 years & more at his father's death. 

Mr. Cussans' accoimt of the manor of Aldbuiy appears to be wrong. 
He states that in the early part of Henry the eighth's reigu, the manor 
was in the possession of Sir Thos. Denham knight who married Joan 
Hide, and that Joan after the death of Sir Thomas was married to 
\Vm. Fitz- William but leaving no issue by either husband, she devised 
the manor to her kinsman Thomas Hide who held a court there in 1547 
and again in 1569. 

The following wills of Sir Thos. Denham & his wife effectually 
disprove most of the above statements.

THE EXGUSH KMERSONB. 385 



(IDIt^ <IIBtt0U0lr (/BtnevB0n0^ 



Dr P. H. £mei-80u has added a very valuable contribution to 
genealogical literature in *' The Exolish Emersons.' * Unlike many 
compilers of family histoiies who amplify the record of their own with 
chapters on allied families, Dr. Emerson has confined himself strictly 
to a record of facts relating to persons of his own name and may be 
congratulated on liaving produced a veiy readable volume. 

Every available source of information appears to have been investi- 
gated and a highly important feature of the work is the Appendix 
wliich contains over a hundred closely printed pages of Authorities. 
Too often "chapter and verse'* are conspicuous by their absence in 
family histories and tlie plan adopted by Dr. Emerson of g^uping his 
authorities in an appendix is excellent and does not interfere with the 
text. 

With the diapters on the origin of the surname, the armorial 
bearings of the family and the history of the numerous north-country 
and other Emersons, it would be impossible to deal, in the compass of 
this short notice. It was my good fortune to be instrumental in 
identifying the ancestor, not only of the author, but also of the dis- 
ting^shed American, Ralph Waldo £mer9<m^ with Bishops Stortford, a 
fact which should be of great interest to Herts genealogists. The 
details of my discoveiy are given in the sixth chapter. 

Tabular sketch pedigrees abound throughout the book and I am
