Lord BoDEM being anxious to gratify those Friends the more 
readily, who wished to have copies of the manuscript, desired 
that a few should be printed, to be distributed among them. 
Before it went to the Printer I begged to be allowed to make 
some amendments and improvements, that it might be some- 
what less unworthy of a place in his Lordship^s Inbrarj, and to 
add dates, &c., to make it more intelligible to those who had not 
a ready access to the Genealogical Chart. I have also added the 
present state of his Lordship's Family, and given the changes 
that have tak«n place since I wrote, in 1835 ; but the Dedication 
and Preface are given as they are in the manuscripts

As I wrote this Book for a companion for the Pedigree which I 
drew out in the form of a Genealogical Map, for Lord Roden, it 
is not so fall in its accounts of births, deaths, and marriages, as 
it might otherwise have been, as thej are all recorded on the 
Pedigree ; and my sole object in compiling this, was to give a 
short account of each individual therein named, who had been in 
any way noted as connected with the History of our Country, or 
for the excellence of their characters in their more private station. 
I have brought down the account of the family through an un- 
usually lengthened line of ancestry, renowned for noble deeds, 
powerful minds, great learning, and steady adherence to the 
Protestant Faith. Many have been celebrated for their great 
personal attractions, and not a few for their exemplary piety. I 
conclude with an account of the late Earl of Eoden, leaving it to 
future Biographers, and more able pens, to record the patriotism, 
the piety, the unceasing exertions, both of mind and body, in the 
cause of his Country and his Beligion, of the present Earl. 
They may relate how he emulated the best of his ancestors in his 
public virtues and his private worth, and how he was assisted in 
all by his noble Wife, who in herself is a bright and lovely example 
of a long line of noble ancestors producing excellence. 

I have given at the end a list of the very rare and valuable 
coUection of Family Portraits in Lord Roden*s possession. There 
is one line of the Portraits, of every generation, continued unin- 
terruptedly for a period of upwards of three hundred years, that 
from Mary Boleyne down to the present Earl of Bodec.

Descent of the Bai*onies of Beauchamp and Mordaunt. 
Descent from King Edward III. 
Descent from Mary Boleyne. 


The iainily of Bullin, or Boletne, is said to be 
of ancient date in NorfolL The first man of note 
amongst them was Sir Geoffrey Boletn e, who S'' ^wfrrey boi.) 
settled in London, and gained immense wealth as a 
mercer. He was Lord Mayor in 1458, and Knighted 
at the same time, in the reign of Henry VI. He 
married Anne, the eldest daughter and co-heir of 
Thomas, Lord Hoo and Hastings, by whom he had 
a large fiimily. 


Sir William Boletne, second son of Sir Geoffrey, sw wmum Boie> 
was of Blickling, in Norfolk, and merried Margaret, 
the youngest daughter of Thomas Butler, seventh 
£arl of Ormonde, and co-heiress of his large pos- 
sessions in England, consisting of seventy-two manors. 
Sir William died in 1505, and was buried in Norwich 
Cathedral beside his mother. He left, with other 


and Orniondv. 

Sir Thomas Boletne, his eldest son, who with ^^^£1?;"^'^;;:},^ 
his father and others took arms against Perkin 
Warbeck and the Cornish rebels in 1496. He was 
sent by Henry VIIL as one of his Ambassadors 


to the Emperor Maximilian, and was also Knight 
of the King's body, and Governor of the Castle 
of Norwich. In 1519, being then Ambassador to 
the Court of France, he arranged the famous inter- 
view between Henry VJII. and Francis I. Three 
years ailerwards he was sent as Ambassador to Spain, 
and was advanced to the Peerage as Viscount 
RocHFORD. In 1527 he was sent to Paris with 
the Order of the Garter to Francis I., and is said 
to have then brought his daughter Anna finally from 
Paris. He was one of the Peers who subscribed the 
articles against Cardinal Wolsey ; and in the same 
year, 1529, was made Knight of the Garter, and 
created Eakl of Wiltshibb, &c*, to his heirs male, 
and also Earl of Ormonde to his heirs general; 
honors to which he had certain hereditary pre* 
tensions, but most likely so rapidly conferred on 
account of the King's love for his beautiful daughter 
Anna. In consequence of his earnest desire to have 
the title of Ormonde, Sir Pierce Butler, eighth Earl 
of Ormonde, was induced by Henry VIIL to resign 
his ancient title, and in lieu thereof was created 
Earl of Ossory ; but on the death of Sir Thomas 
Boleyne, Earl of Ormonde, in 1536, the King restored 
him to his ancient title, and the Butlers are Earls 
of Ormonde and Ossory to this day. In 1530 the 
Earl of Wiltshire was Lord Privy Seal, and was 
soon after sent again as Ambassador to Spain. He 
was continually in some high office, br employed 
abroad on some embassy. He was the principal 
Ambassador sent by Henry YIII., in 1530, to argue 

the point of his divorce from Catharine of Arragon 
before the Council assembled at Bologna, in the 
presence of Pope Clement VII. He was required 
to acknowledge the Pope's supremacy by kissing his 
toe, which he, being of the reformed religion, posi- 
tively refused to do. It is said by some that while 
Clement in a very high tone was insisting on the 
propriety of the English Earl submitting to this 
ceremony, and extending his toe significantly towards 
him at the. same time, the EarVs dog, imagining no 
doubt that some signal insult was intended to his 
master by this gesture, sprang forward and bit his 
Holiness's toe, which provoked a genei*al burst of 
laughter from all present, and was so highly resented 
by the Pope that he refused to admit the Earl to a 
second audience : so he returned to England with his 
suite, and the separation of this country from the 
Papal See took place shortly after this ludicrous in- 
cident is said to have occurred. He married Elizabeth, 
second daughter of Thomas Howard, second Duke 
of Norfolk, and had one son, Greorge, and two 
daughters, Anna and Mary. He did not survive the 
execution of his two children much more than six 
months ; worn out by sorrow and melancholy reflec- 
tion, he died in the latter end of the year 1536« 

Geokge Boletne, the only son of the Earl of vi«coiint nochf.rJ. 
Wiltshire and Ormonde, was summoned to Parliament 
as Yiscount Eoghford, and was one of the most 
favored Noblemen of that day. He was sent by 
Henry YIII. to Francis I. to announce his private 

marriage with his sister Anna Boleyne, and to solicit 
that Monarch's advice about making it public. He 
was afterwards made Constable cf Dover and Warder 
of the Cinque Forts. He wad sent again to Yer- 
sailles in 1535, to propose a union between the King's 
infant daughter, Elizabeth (his niece), and one of 
the sons of Francis. He rose by the exaltation of 
his sister, and fell an innocent victim. He was much 
admired and beloved at Court, as well for his tal^its 
as the beauty of his person. He was committed to 
the Tower on the 2nd of May, 1536, and arraigned, 
his wicked wife appearing against him as a witness, 
and was beheaded on the 17th of the same month. 
He was attainted soon after his execution, and as he 
left no children, the honors of the Bolejne j&mily 
ended with the Earl his father. 

\M*ky Hochf(>rd. 

Jane Parker was his wife. ^'This detestable 
'' woman, whose name should never be forgotten, 
" was the daughter of Henry, Lord Morley." She 
was ^' the accuser of her own husband to the seeking 
^' of his blood." She was a Lady of the Bedchamber 
to Anna Boleyne, and continued so to Jane Seymour, 
Anne of Cleves, and also to Catharine Howard, and 
very deservedly shared the fate of her last mistress, 
being beheaded in the Tower on the 14th of February, 

A mm Holeyne. 

The eldest daughter of the Earl of Wiltshire was 
Anna Boletne, the beautiful and unfortunate Queen 
of Henry VIII. At eight years old she attended the 

Princess Mary of England into France, as one of 
her Maids of Honor, when she married Louis XIL ; 
and on his death, a few months afterwards, was 
taken into the household of Claude, Queen of France, 
for the sake of her childish attractions. On the 
approach of a rupture between the two countries, 
in 1522, Henry VIII. required her being returned to 
England before he declared war — ^for, being a Lady 
of the Household, she could not leave France without 
the King's permission. Whether she came home 
then or not is doubtful, but Henry YIII. does not 
seem to have noticed her until 1527, when she was 
in her twenty-second year. That year, in May, 
Henry gave a magnificent entertainment at Green- 
wich, at which she was his partner in the dance. 
Anna was created Marchioness of Pembroke in 
September, 1532, and privately married to the King 
in the November following. Her daughter Elizabeth, 
our famous Queen, was bom in September, 1533. 
Anna lived about three years in grandeur as the 
Queen of England ; but the tyrant tiring of her, 
shortly after the birth of a still-born son, sent her 
to the Tower on the 2nd May, 1536, in custody of 
her uncle the Duke of Norfolk. At the gate of 
that fortress, so lately her Palace, she knelt down 
and prayed, ^^ Lord ! help me as I am guiltless 
*^ of this whereof I am accused." On the 5th Mav 


she was examined before the Privy Council at 
Greenwich ; on the 15 th, she was tried in the Tower, 
just after her brother, — and on the 19th, she was 
brought to the scaffold erected within its walls. 

Anna was the only person present whose mind was 
composed ; and, humbly kneeling, she repeated se- 
veral times just before the blow, " Christ, I pray 
" Thee, receive my spirit." Her body was thrown 
into a large box, and buried without ceremony in 
the Tower. 

Man- Boleynt* 


Mary Boletne was Anna's younger sister, though 
some say elder. Nothing more seems to be known 
of her but her marriage with William Carei, and 
her being the mother of Lord Hundson. Her por- 
trait, and that of Queen Anna Boleyne (a very 
beautiful painting), are in the possession of the Earl 
of Eoden at Tollymore Park. 

We must now turn to the Careys. 


The ancient family of Cabet was seated for many 
ages in the Counties of Devon and Somerset. The 
first whom I can trace is Adam de Kaert, who^*^^***^- 
was Lord of Castle Earry, in Somersetshire, and 
appears to have lived in the reign of Henry III. He 
married Anne, daughter of William Trevet, and 
was father of 

John de Ka&rt, who married Elizabeth, daughter John da emxtj, 
of Sir Sichard Stapleton, and had 

William de Kaery, who held the Manor of West ^«»«° *• ^"^ 
Polwarth, in Devonshire, by the tenth part of a 
Knight's fee. His wife, Alice, daughter of Sir William 
Beaumont, had Favestou and Karry. Their son. 

Sir William Caret, married a daughter of Sir s*' ''^*"*«»^ ^"•y- 
John Archdeckene, and left two sons, William and 

Sir Willum Caret, the eldest, was elected Mem- sir wjiumi cany. 
ber for Devonshire in 1361 and 1367, two Parliaments 
of £dward III. In 1387, by license from Kichard II., 


and by the Pope's authority, he coDverted the Parish 
Church of Clovelly, in Devonshire, into a Collegiate 
(church, with seven Chaplains and a Warden ; built 
houses for them, and granted them the advowson of 
the Church. He died without children. 

.sirj.hnci«v, SiE John Cabet, his brother, succeeded. He 
was elected, along with Sir William, Member for 
Devonshire, in 1361 and 1367. He was seated at 
Cockington. In 1382, he was Sergeant-at-Law, and 
in 1386, a Baron of the Exchequer. In 1388, he 
was (for opposing those who wished to procure the 
resignation of Bichard IL,) banished to Ireland, 
and had his lands confiscated. He died at Waterford, 
in 1404. He married, first Agnes, daughter of 
Bichard de Stafford, first Baron de Stafford, who 
died in 1381 ; secondly, Margaret, daughter and 
heiress of William Holwell, of Holwell, in Devonshire, 
and the widow of Sir Guy de Brian. By her he had 
^TxeJ!*^ two Sons, John Carey, who was Bishop of Exeter 
in 1419, and

he fled to a Church for sanctuary, but was induced 
to surrender himself under a promise of pardon from 
Edward lY. ; and, notwithstanding, was beheaded. • 
His first wife, Anne, daughter of Sir William Paulet, 
of Hinton St Greorge, in Somersetshire, was the 
mother of his eldest son, 

KoBEBT Cabet, who settled at Cockington, where, ^^j^^j^j^f 
and also at Clovelly, in Devonshire, his descendants 
are yet to be found. A branch of them migrated to

recalled. He was of Berkamstead and Aldenham, 
in Hertfordshire, and married Catherine, daughter of 
Sir Heory Knevet, Knight, and widow of Henry, 
second Lord Paget He died in 1618, and was 
buried at Aldenham. He left one son and two 
daughters: Anne, who married Francis Leak, first 
£arl of Scarsdale — and Frances, whose second hus- 
band was Greorge Manners, seventh Earl of Kutland, 
and who died September, 1641. 

ut imta Faikkna SiB Henry Caret, his only son, was educated at 

Oxford, where he acquired a celebrated name, and 
became an accomplished Grentleman. He was made 
a Knight of the Bath at the creation of Henry, Prince 
of Wales. He was Member for Hertfordshire, a 
Privy Councillor, and, in 1617, Comptroller of the 
Household to James L, who, in 1620, created him, 
with all the privileges, as if he had been a native of 
Scotland, Viscount Falkland of Fife ; and, know- 
ing his great abilities and experience, made him Lord 
Deputy of Ireland, where he remained seven years. 
He kept a strict hand over the Boman Catholics, who 
contrived to get him removed in disgrace — but his 
innocence was afterwards vindicated, and the King 
took him again into favour. He is remarkable for 
an invention to prevent his name being forged, by 
concealing it in the successive years of his age, and 
po>^riti'. by that means detected a forger. His portrait is 
in Walpole's ^^ Royal and Noble Authors." He was 
a complete Courtier, but wasted, instead of making, a 
fortune at Court. He got the Manor of Great Tew, 


Burford, and other estates in Oxfordshire, by his wife, 
Elizabeth, only child of Sir Lawrence Tanfield, Chief 
Baron of the Exchequer. He died in 1633, in con- 
sequence of breaking his leg on a stand at Theobald's, 
and was buried at Aldenham. He had two sons, and 
one daughter, Anne, married to James, second Earl 
of Home. His second son, Lawrence Caret, was 
killed in 1642, fighting under Sir Charles Coote, at 
Swords, where the Irish rebels were defeated. 

Lucius Carey, his eldest son, was the second Lord ^ ^««'* vM«id 
Falkland. In all the Peerages, he is called Henry, 
but as the historical accounts of him universally call 
him Lucius, I have adopted it as the correct name. 
He was one of those rare characters who serve as 
proverbial instances of excellence. He was partly 
educated in Dublin College, while his father was 
Lord Deputy, and afterwards went to St. John's at 
Cambridge. He married, very young, Letitia, daugh- 
ter of Sir Richard Morrison, Ejiight, of Tooley Park, 
in Leicestershire, "a young Lady of extraordinary 
wit and judgment, and of the most signal virtue and (sir r. uuugu^) 
exemplary life," but without fortune. His marriage 
so offended his &ther, that he would not forgive him, 
in spite of all the generous offers of the son, who was 
so affected by his father's displeasure, that he made 
an attempt to devote himself to a military life in 
Holland, but failing in the negociation, he returned 
to England, and, giving himself up to a life of retire- 
ment, pursued the studies of profound literature with 
uncommon ardor. His father's death in 1 633, when 


he was bat 23, drew him to Court, and he was 
made one of the Grentlemen of the Bedchamber to 
Charles L, but his love of study and a rural life in- 
duced him to settle again at Great Tew, which he 
made a kind of Academy of learned men by his 
visitors. The state of the times drew him from his 
retirement again in 1639. He was Member for 
Newport, in Cornwall. He was a great " Eeformer," 
but a strong attachment to established forms, and 
growing suspicious of the designs of the Parliamentary 
leaders, induced him to change his opinions, and 
afterwards to give his utmost opposition to them. 
His high character made it a great object to gain him 
over to the King's service. In 1642 he was prevailed 
on to be Secretary of State, and to become a Privy 
Councillor. He with firmness supported his unhappy 
master ; but a view of the calamities brought on his 
native country quite broke his spirits, and he became 
careless of every thing, morose, and reserved. Fre- 
quently, after long silence and deep sighs, he would 
repeat with a shrill voice, " peace, peace,'' and say 
he was unable to live in such a state of anxiety. He 
attended the King in his battles. On the morning of 
the battle of Newberry, 20th September, 1643, his 
friends tried to dissuade him from going into the fight, 
as he was not a military character. He said he was 
weary of the times, and foresaw much misery to his 
country, and did believe he would be out of it 'ere 
night. He called for a clean shirt, and being asked 
the reason, said, if he were slain they should not find 
his body in foul linen. Placing himself in the front 


rank of Lord Byron's regiment, he was struck by a 
musket ball, and falling from his horse his body was 
not found till the next morning. 

^ Thus died Falkland, the generous and the just/* 
He was a sincere Christian. His praises have been 
resounded by Poets, Historians, and Moralists. Lord 
Clarendon gives him a high character: he says he 
was a person of such prodigious parts, of learning 
and knowledge, and of such worth, ^^ that if there was 
^ no other brand upon that odious and accursed civil 
^^ war than that single loss, it must be most infamous 
^' to all posterity." Though he was of inimitable 
sweetness and delight in conversation, he was not at* 
tractive or pleasing in his personal appearance; he 
had a great mind in a little body. His usual saying 
was, ^^ I pity unlearned Gentlemen on a rainy day." 
His portrait is in Walpole's collection of ^^Boyal and 
Noble Authors." He was but thirty-three years old 
at his death. When this great and amiable man was 
no more, his widow, the excellent Lady Falkland, i^yFaikund. 
sunk in the deepest affliction, but fixed her mind on 
her Savioue, and soon found that relief, from acts of 
piety and devotion, which nothing else could have 
administered. After the tumults of her grief had 
subsided, and her mind was restored to her former 
tranquillity, she began to experience that happiness to 
which all are strangers but the truly pious Christian. 
She was constant in the public and private exercises 
of devotion, and spent much of her time in family 
prayer, singing psalms, and in religious exercises 
with her children and servants. She frequently 



visited her poor neighbours, and would read to them 
while they were employed in spinning, but especially 
attended them in their illnesses — and distributed a 
great number of religious tracts. Her husband lefk 
her by will all he was possessed of, and committed his 
three sons (the only children he had) to her sole care : 
but she only survived him two years and a half, dying 
in February, 1646, being about 35 years of age. 

sd vuct. Faikund. Henbt Caret, thc eldest son, was of quick and 

extraordinary parts, and great spirit. He went very 
young into the House of Commons. A grave Senator 
objected to his youth, and to his not looking as if he 
had ^^sown his wild oats/' He quickly replied, '' then 
"/ am come to the properest place^ where there are 
*^ so many geese to pick them up/' He had been re- 
turned for Newton, in Hampshire. A new writ wBs 
ordered for it. This was in 1645. In 1659, he was 
sent to the Tower, suspected of being concerned in Sir 
Greorge Booth's rising for the restoration of Charles II. 
He died in 1668, in the prime of his years, as much 
missed when dead, as beloved when living. He wrote 
repy»Di«,y.8-iT8. thc " Wcddiug Night," a kind of tragedy. His wife 

was Margaret, daughter of Anthony Hungerford. He 
was succeeded by his son, 

4th vuK-t. Faikund. Anthont Cabet, hls only child, as the fourth 

Viscount Falkland. He was also a Member of the 
House of Commons, and an author, and is mentioned 
as such in Walpole's catalogue. He was Paymaster 
of the Navy during the reigns of Charles II. and 


James II. He joined in the Revolntion, and was 
appointed Commissioner of the Admiralty in 1690, 
and also a Privy Councillor. He was committed to 
the Tower by the Commons in 169S, for a breach of 
trust, and died the same year. He purchased the 
Manor of Stanwell, in Middlesex. He married 
Rebecca, daughter of Sir Rowland Litton, of Eneb- 
worth, in Hertfordshire, and lefk one daughter, the 
Honorable Frances Carey, married to John Villiers, 
first Earl of Grandison; and one son, 

Lucius Hbnet Caret, who succeeded his father •'**^''''«*^'^''**'*'^ 
as fifth Viscount He served in Spain under General 
Stanhope. Lord Lansdowne,* in some verses he 
addressed to him, mentions it thus — 

'< When Stauhope led thee thro^ the heats of Spain, 
To die in purple Almenara's plain." 

He died at Paris in 1730, and was buried in the 
Chapel of St Sulpice. He had three sons and three 
daughters by his first wife, Dorothy, eldest daughter 
of Francis Molyneuz, of London. His second wife, 
Laura Dillon, was sister of Charles and Henry, 
Viscounts Dillon, and of Arthur, Archbishop of

of a soldierly disposition, and a great lover of itien 
of the sword ; remarkable for a freedom of speech 
and behaviour, oftener to be found in a Camp than

He died at Somerset House, 23rd July, 1596, and 
was buried in Westminster Abbey, where a noble 
MoDument. monumcut was erected to his memory, which yet 
remains.* The illness which occasioned his death is 
said to have arisen from disappointed ambition, in 
never having obtained the dignity of Earl of Wilt-

that " when he lay on his death bed, the Queen gave

his execution in 1685. She did not survive him many 
months, and dying in 1686, a costly monument was 
erected to her memory at Toddington, where she lies

Robert Caret, the seventh Lord Hunsdon, was in rth Loni Huniid.,n 
very poor circumstances. It is said that he was a 
weaver by trade before he came to the title, so low 
was the family reduced ! But considering the proba-

James, the future King of England. He was on 
board the Fleet at the destruction of the Armada, in 
1588. He served in Normandy, under Essex, Queen 
Elizabeth's unfortunate favorite, to whom he was 
much attached. Essex Knighted him at Dieppe, in 
1590. He was afterwards Deputy Warden of the 
Marches towards Scotland, Warden of the East 
Alarch, and, finaUy, Warden of the Middle March 
until Elizabeth's death. He married about 1592,

observes, "^ I only relied on God and the Eang. The 
^^one never left me; the other, shortly after his 
^^ coming to London, deceived my expectation, and 
^^ adhered to those that sought my ruin." He still 
remained about the Court of James. His wife was 
appointed Mistress of the Kobcs to the Queen, and 
they both had the charge of the Duke of York 
(afterwards Charles I.) in his childhood. Being at 
the head of his household on his becoming Prince of 
Wales, on the lamented death of Prince Henry, Sir 
Robert Carey was made his Chamberlain, and ever 
remained attached to him till his death, in 1639, at 
a good old age, nearly eighty. ^^ The blue sapphire

(Anthony Wo jd) 


Henrt Caret, Lord Leppington, was his eldest 
son, and became second Earl of Monmouth. He 
was brought up with the Duke of Tork (afterwards 
Charles L) Before he entered upon his travels he 
received this admonition from Charles — ^ Be always 
" doing something while you are abroad/' It appears 
that he acted in conformity to that Prince's advice, as 
he returned home complete master of the languages of 
those countries through which he travelled. He was 
made a Knight of the Bath, at the creation of Charles, 
Prince of Wales, in 1616. He was noted "as a 
" person well skilled in the modern languages, and a 
" generous scholar ; the fruit whereof he found in the 
'' troublesome times of the Bebellion, when, by a 
"forced retirement, he was enabled to study while 
" others of the Nobility were obliged to truckle to 
"their inferiors for company's sake." He wrote 
much, but "we have scarce anything of his own 
" composition, and are as little acquainted with his 
"character as with his genius." He was a great 
sufferer by the civil wars, especially by the death of 
his son, a youth of great hopes, who was kiQed at 
Marston Moor. But while some of the Nobility 
were actually embroiled in this war, and others were 
miserable from the effects of it, the Earl of Monmouth 


enjoyed the calm pleasures of a studious retirement. 
His wife, with whom he ]ived forty-one years, was 
Martha, daughter of Lionel Cranfield, first Earl of 
Middlesex, Lord Treasurer. He had two sons, 
Lionel and Henry, who both died before him, so 
that, at his death in 1661, the titles of Baron Lep- 
pington and Earl of Monmouth became extinct 
fle was buried at Eickmansworth, in Hertfordshire, 
where a monument was erected to his memory. Monamenc 

Lionel Caeet, Lord Leppington, his eldest son, Lord i^ppin9t«D. 
was killed, fighting for Charles L, at Marston Moor, 
in 1644. He was not married. 

Henry Carey, his seccmd son, died of the small Hon. Henry c^rey. 
pox, in 1641, also unmarried. 

Lord Monmouth had also eight daughters, three 
only of whom were married. 

Lady Anne Carey, the eldest daughter, married ^^^ISS^I^'""* 
James Hamilton, Earl of Clanbrassil, and was mother 
of Henry Hamilton, the last Earl of Clanbrassil, of 
the first creation. 

Lady Maiy Carey was the second wife of William count6« or Deobigh 
Fielding, third Earl of Denbigh, and second Earl of 

Lady Martha Carey, Countess of Middleton, oouauwofMiddi- 
second wife of John, Earl of Middleton, and mother 
of Lady Elizabeth Spelman, who told the history of "^sSS""'*' 
" the blue ring," to John, fifth Earl of Cork, when he 
was publishing her great grandfather's memoirs. The 
portrait of the Earl of Middleton, three-quarters Portrmiu. 
length, is at Castleward, and the same at Tollymore 
Park, and that of Lady Elizabeth Spelman also. She 


left fifteen portraits of the Caroj family to James 
Hamilton, the first Earl of Clanbrassil, of the second 
creation, in 1747. 

Hon Thomas Carey. Thomas Garet, tiic secottd son of Bobcrt, first 

Earl of Monmouth, was also brought up with Charles L, 
and was Groom of the Bedchamber to him when 
Prince of Wales, and continued so when he became 
King. lie was amongst that unfortunate Monarch's 
most faithful servants and friends ; so &ithful and 
attached that upon the execution of his royal master, 
he fell sick of grief, and died about the year 1648, 
in the fifty-second year of his age. He obtained 
celebrity as a Poet, and is buried in Westminster 
Abbey« He left two daughters, Philadelphia and 
Elizabeth Carey. His wife was Margaret, daughter 
and heir of Sir Thomas Smith, a very beautiful 
person, who, affcer his death, was married to Sir Edward 
Herbert, Knight, Attorney-Greneral to Charles I.,, 
and Keeper of the Great Seal to Charles II. in his 
exile, and had three sons, Arthur, afterwards Earl of 
Torrington, the famous Admiral ; Edward, and 
Charles who died at Paris in 1()57. There are two 
poiiraitB. portraits of Margaret at Tolly more Park, one as Mrs. 
iM, Herbert Carcy, aud the other as Lady Herbert, and there was, 
in the Wharton collection, a full-length of her, by 
Vandyke, in 1636. Granger in his "Biography," 
also mentions a print of her as Lady Herbert, half- 
sheet, engraved by Fairthorne, of which he says, 
"tliis is one of the scarcest and finest of all our 
** English prints.'' 


Philadelphia Carey, the eldest daughter of the i-tay Lyweiton. 
Honorable Thomas Carey, married Sir Henry 
Lyttelton, Bart, uncle to the first Lord Lyttelton. 
8he died at Tunbridge Wells, on the 2nd August, 
1663, aged thirty'-two, where she was in attendance 
upon Queen Catherine, to whom she was Lady of 
the Bedchamber. She was buried in the Church of 
Tunbridge, where a handsome monument is erected 
to her memory, with a Latin inscription, written by

She married about the year 1656, John Mordaunt,

the second son of John, first Earl of Peterborough. 
Clarendon mentions her as ^' a young, beautiful Lady,

and brought tf trial, she, by her judicious manage-

ment in bribing some of the Judges, getting a chief 
ivitness out of the way, and, though strictly guarded 
in the Tower, had a note of instruction conveyed to 
him, how to conduct himself upon the trial — so that 
she was, under GoD, the means of having him 
acquitted. Besides being gifted with superior sense 
and beauty, this excellent Lady was eminently pious ; 
she kept a Diary, which is still extant, in her own 
hand-writing, in which she ^ves an interesting 
account of her feelings, with a strict examination of 
them, on the various events of her life, with her 
prayers and thanksgivings on those occasions, 
especially during the imprisonment of her husband, 
his differences and law-suit with his brother, Lord 
Peterborough, the birth of her children, &c. &c But 
I regret I cannot give more from this interesting 
volume, as it is some years since I have seen it — ^it is 
bound in vellum, and closed with a silver lock. 
About forty years ago this valuable family relic was 
discovered, at the back of the books, in the old 
library at Dundalk House, by Anne, Countess of 
£oden, and came into the possession of her daughter, 
Hariot, Countess of Massereene, who bequeathed it, 
amongst her valuable papers, to her son-inJaw, Yisct 
Ferrard. Lady Massereene made some few extracts 
from it| and had them printed as a Beligious Tract, not 
long after it was found. Lady Mordaunt appears to 
have survived her husband about three years, dying 
probably in 1678, when the Diary ceases. She 
became sole heiress to her father, on tlie death of her 
sister. Lady Lyttleton, and this was the last of the 


Careys of the Monmouth line. She left five sons and 

four daughters. Her eldest son, Charles Mordaunt, 

who was created Earl of Monmouth, and succeeded 

as third Earl of Peterborough, was the famous 

General in the time of Queen Anne — his descendants 

in the male line are extinct — but some of the family 

honors were carried, through his grand-daughter, to 

the Dukes of Grordon. The second, Greneral Harry 

Mordaunt, whose line failed in the third generation — 

the third, Lewis, whose male line is now extinct — 

the fourth, Osmund, killed at the battle of the Boyne, 

unmarried — and George, bom after his father's death, 

who left two daughters. Her eldest daughter, 

Charlotte, married Benjamin Albin, and had no 

children. Carey, the second, died unmarried. The 

third, Sophia, married James Hamilton of Bangor, 

and the fourth, Anne, married James Hamilton of

Mordaunt, a very proper one, from dare mortem^

in the conquest of Ireland. He had from Harvey de

and many great possessions. He left two sons, 
Osmund; and Baldwin, who was witness to many 
ancient charters still extant 

Osmund le Mordaunt, who lived in the times of onmud le Monunnt 
Henry II., had the lands of Kadwell, Fehnarsham, 
Ghellington, Wahull, and other places. It is possible 
that he may have been a younger son, and that the 
eldest remained settled in Ireland, under some other 
name. However, he was Knight of much renown, 
and married Ellen, daughter of Sampson Fortis, 
with whom he got Chellington ; and had two sons^ 
Eustace and Boberb 

Eustace ls Mordaunt was a valiant Knight, and Ewtwe le Mai<uaat 
went with Richard I. to the Holy Land. He acquired 
the Lordship of Tubvet, in Bedfordshire, and other 
fiiir possessions, by his marriage with Alice, the 
eldest of the two beautiful daughters and co-heiresses 
of Sir William de Alneto, who was also one of the 
Knights who accompanied King Richard in his first 
voyage to Palestine. Sarah, the second daughter, 
married Sir Richard de Ardres. There are several 
deeds of Eustace's stiU extant, by the name of Eus- 
tachius Mordaunt de Wahull. He died in 1231, 
leaving a daughter, Agnes, and one son, William : 

William de Mordaunt succeeded to Radwell and wmiMn de Mor 


Turvey. He married Amicia, daughter of Sir William 
de Olney, by whom he got Esthull and Yerdly, and 



died in 1280, leaving twosons, William and Biohard. 
She married afterwards Egidius de Albeney, Lord 
of Dempster. 

'^*"*Xi\**'*' WiLLUM DE MoBBAUNT, the eldest son, became 

Lord of Tunrej, Badwell and Esthull, and purchased 
the Manor of Chichely. He obtained a patent from 
Edward L, in 1296, to empark certain lands in 
Turvej. His wife was Boesia, or Rose, the daughter 
of Sir Balph de Wake, Lord of Clifton, with whom 
he got the Manor of Clifton, which remained for 
centuries after in possession of the Mordaunts, under 
the name of Wake's Manor. He died about 1327, 
and left three sons, Robebt ; William, who married 
Maud ; and Edward, who married Eleanor.

came into the possession of a very large inheritance 
in the Counties of Bedford, Cambridge, Northampton, 
Hertford and Bucks ; and by exchange of Shephaell, 
he got the half of Turvey from Thomas de Ardres, 
and re-united the Manor, which had been divided for 
one hundred and ninety-five years, since the marriages 
of Alice and Sarah, the beautiful sisters of Hugh 
de Alneto. He also added to his property by his mar- 
riage with Agnes, daughter and, eventually, sole 
heirass of John L'Estrange, of Hampton Tudworth, 
in Sussex, by Elizabeth, sister and heiress of William 
Bottler, of Waldem, in the same County. He died 
about 1394, leaving one son, EoBiET, and a daugh-

Members for Bedfordshire in Henry Y.'s Parliament,

the expenses attendant upon the wars abroad, and 


the civil troubles in the reign of Henry YL, he dis- 
posed of a large portion of his great estates. He 
married Elizabeth, daughter of Robert Uoldenby, 
of Holdenbjy and died in 1448, leaving one son, 
William, and two daughters, Maud and Elizabeth.

of Drayton, to which he added much, and lived in 
great magnificence, and ^^his hospitality is to this 
^^daj famous/' He was a great lover of art, and an 
encourager of learning. He was knighted bj Queen 
Elizabeth, in 1567. He was one of the Peers who 
sat in judgment upon the Duke of Norfolk, in 1576, 
and also in 1586, on Mary Queen of Scots, at 
Fotheringay. He sat in many Parliaments, and 
commanded the troops in his district assembled 
against the Spanish invasion. He lived a long and 
prosperous life, and died at Drayton in 1601, and 
lies buried at Turvey, under a tomb * of black marble. 
There was a serious disunion in the family, occasioned 
by his father, Sir John, encouraging him to marry 
Anne Witney, the beautiful daughter of his second 
wife, Johanne, who was also very desirous of the 
match. But the grandfather, the old Lord Mordaunt, 
opposed it violently, and, threatening to dismember 
the estates, they all found it their advantage to make 
peace, and concurred in his marriage with Elizabeth, 
daughter of Sir Arthur D'Arcy, Ent, brother to the 
Lord D'Arcy, by whom he had three daughters, Mary;

and estates. His strict adherence to the Roman 
Catholic religion kept him away from the Court of 
James L, and he lived in retirement in the enjoyment 
of hb large possessions. However, he was not free 
from suspicion, and was, in 1605, committed to the 
Tower, charged with having a knowledge of the 
Gunpowder Plot He was fined by the Star Cham- 
ber, and released the year following, on the 8rd June, 
but his health suffering from the confinement it 
brought him to an early grave, as he died in 1608. 
He had married Margaret, daughter of Sir Henry 
Compton, Lord Compton (and sister of William, first 
Earl of Northampton), by Lady Frances, daughter 
of Francis Hastings, second Earl of Huntingdon. 
Through this marriage we trace our descent from 
King Edward IIL* Lord Mordaunt left four daugh* 
ters, Frances, married to Sir Thomas Keville, eldest 
son of Henry, Lord Abergavenny ; Elizabeth ; Mar-> 
garet ; and Anne, died unmarried ; and three sons, 
John, his heir; James, who married first, Mary 
Tirringham, and secondly, Frances Gostwick, from 
whom are descended the Mordaunts of Medborn, in 
Leicestershire ; and Lewis, who married and died 
without children.

young at his iather^s death, and remained under the

care of hU mother, Lady Mordaunt, who was a 
zealous professor of the Roman Catholic religion. 
After he came to an age capahle of taking important 
impressions, he was, in consequence, by the command 
of James L, removed from her control, and placed 
in the house of Greorge Abbot, Archbishop of Can- 
terbury, under whose tuition he was educated until 
he was sent to finish his studies at Oxford, where 
he is said to have been ^ the star of the University." 
He was converted to Protestantism by a disputation 
between Dr. James Usher, afterwards Archbishop of 
Armagh, and the Jesuit Bookwood, which took place 
in his presence. Bookwood confessed himself silenced 
by the just hand of God, for presuming, without 
leave from his superiors, to dispute with the Doctor. 
Lord Mordaunt ^^ was very beautiful, ingenious, affisu (Hai.te«d) 
ble, and applicable to all was good and useful." James 
I. early called him to Court — ^gave him many marks 
of his favor, and remitted the fine of £10,000 imposed 
upon his father by the Star Chamber. He continued 
in favor with the unfortunate Charles I., who created 
him an Earl, and made him Lord Lieutenant and 
Governor of Northamptonshire, and honored him 
with his private friendship. But, notwithstanding, 
he allowed himself to be induced by his wife, a Lady 
of a very haughty spirit, who had received some 
disgust at Courts to take part with those ^ unhappy 
^' Beformers, who at last destroyed all they pretended 
'' to mend." He was, in 1642, Field-Marshal of the 
army raised by the Parliament, pretended to be for 
the defence of the Protestant religion; and had 



besides, the command of a Begiment of Foot, and a 
Troop of Horse, acting under Bobert, larl of Essex, 
Captain-General of all the Parliamentary forces. 
However, with much regret at the part he had taken 
against his King, he died of consumption on the 18th 
of June in the same jear, and was buried at Turvey. 
His wife was Elisabeth, daughter and sole heir of 
William Howard, Lord Howard of Effingham (eldest 
son of Charles, first Earl of Nottingham, the grandson 
of Thomas Howard, second Dnke of Norfolk*), by

such a spirit of loyalty and love for his King as never 
afterwards could be extinguished. He took the op- 
posite side to his father in the civil war, and distin- 
guished himself on behalf of Charles I. ; raised a 
Segiment at his own expensCi and was wounded in 
the battle of Newbury, in 1643, when but twenty 
years of age. He married, soon after he came of 
age, Lady Penelope, only daughter of Sir Barnabus 
O'Brien, sixth Earl of Thomond, with whom he got 
some fortune, which was of great use to him, as the 
Parliament party had sequestered his estates. He 
went to Ireland, and from thence to France with 
Lady Peterborough, but having made a composition 
for his estate, through the interest of his mother, with 
the Parliament party, he returned to live at Turvey 
in quiet He waited upon King Charles the night 
he slept at Ampthill, when in the power of his ene- 
mies. ^^Cheerfulness there was not much in the 
^^ King's looks, but no disorder; grave they were, 
^ but distinguishing to any he took for friends : and 
" injured greatness appeared in every motion." Lord 
Peterborough left him resolved to run all risks in the 
service of his unhappy master. He joined the Earl 
of Holland in his unsuccessful rising to rescue the 
King; and though Lord Holland was taken and 
afterwards beheaded. Lord Peterborough and his 
brother, John Mordaunt, escaped, and were voted 
traitors to the Commonwealth. He retired to Ant- 
werp, but after the murder of the King, through the 
management of his Countess, ^'an ingenious and 
^industrious Lady," he was permitted to make 




another composition for his estate, and returned to 
England, and lived retired till the Sestoration. On 
the marriage of Charles 11. he was sent with a fleet 
and took possession of Tangiers, where he remained 
as Governor till 1663. In 1673 he was sent Ambas- 
sador Extraordinary to Modena, to negociate the 
marriage of the Duke of York, afterwards James II., 
with the Princess Maiy Beatrix Eleanora D'Este, 
daughter of Alphonso U., Duke of Modena. He was 
for some time previous employed in searching out a 
Princess fit for his Boyal Highness ; and no less than 
eight were at different times under his consideration, 
with most of whom he had personal interviews at the 
respective Courts of their Boyal relatives ; and though 
Clauda Felicia, Archduchess of Inspruck — ^the Duchess 
of Guise — Mademoiselle de Kais — Mary Anne, Prin- 
cess of Wirtemberg — the Princess of Newburgh — Ma- 
demoiselle D'Alboeuf, and a Princess of the house of 
Parma, were severaUy in question, yet the young 
Princess of Modena was selected as the most suitable. 
He presented her with £20,000 worth of jewels, 
entrusted to him by the Duke of York, as the wedding 
present. The Earl of Peterborough was proxy in the 
marriage, and conducted the Princess over through 
France as far as Calais, where she was met by the 
retinue of the Duke, who received her himself at 
Dover, and there they were married. 

At the Coronation of James IL, in 1685, he car- 
ried the Sceptre with the Cross, and was soon after 
made Eoiight of the Garter, and Colonel of the 3rd 
Kegiment of Horse. In 1689, after the accession of 


William and Mary, the Commons resolved that the 
Earl of Peterborough and the Earl of Salisbury should 
be impeached of High Treason, for departing from 
their allegiance and being reconciled to the Church 
ofBome; but the impeachment was dropped. He 
died in 1097, and was buried at Turvey. He was 
distinguished for his antiquarian knowledge, and his 
desire to preserve the records of his own family, which 
induced him to compile that now scarce folio volume, 
entitled "Halstead's Genealogies/' Pepys, in his 
Diary, mentions him as ^^ a great lover of bows and 
arrows ; " and also of ^^ a new-fashioned gun, brought 
^ to my Lord Peterborough, to shoot often, one after 
"another, without trouble or danger.** Pepys also 
says, "God forgive how our report, of my Lord 
"Peterborough's accounts (of the Committee of Tan- 
" giers), was read over and agreed to by the Lords, 
" without one of them understanding it ! And had it 
been what it would^ it had gone." His wife, the 
Countess, is mentioned by Pepys as an active, intel- 
ligent person. She died in 1702. He had no son, 
and left Lady Mary, his only surviving daughter, his 
sole heir : his eldest daughter, Lady Elizabeth, died 
at twelve years of age. 

Ladt Mart Mokdaunt, the sole heir of her father, •Duehe.,, or Norfolk. 
married in 1677, Henry Howard, seventh Duke of 
Norfolk, but he, having reason to be displeased with 
her conduct, separated himself from her in October, 
1685, about eight years after their marriage. In 
1695, he moved for an Act of Parliament to dissolve 


his marriage, and allow him to marry again. He 
did not then succeed — ^but in the Session of 1699 he 
again moved the Lords ^^to dissolve his marriage 
^^ with Ladj Mary Mordaunt, and to enable him to 
^^ marry again/' which passed the House in a few 
days, but not without a protest, and had the Eoyal 
assent in April, ITQO. The Duke died in AprU, 
1701, without marrying again ; but after his death, 
Lady Mary married Sir John Grermaine. She only 
survived four years, and died in 1705, leaving all her 
Drmjton. propcrty, and the magnificent seat of D&atton, in 
Northamptonshire, to her second husband. Sir John 
Germaine. She became, on her father's death in 
1697, Babon£88 Mordaukt — but the Earldom of 
Peterborough then devolved upon Charles Mor- 
DAUNT, the eldest son of Lord Peterborough's brother, 
John, Lord Mordaunt ; and at Lady Mary's death, 
1705, the Barony of Mordaunt devolved on him, and 
also that of Beauohamp of Bletsoe. 
^"^"ofATSom*""* John Mokdaunt, the second son of John, first 

Earl of Peterborough, was created Viscount Mor- 
daunt of AvALON. He was educated in France and 
Italy. He was famed for his signal exploits during 
the Usurpation, and very early engaged in that attempt 
of Lord Holland's to rescue Charles I. Of his active 
• exertions and wonderful perils, in bringing about the 
Bestoration, Lord Clarendon gives a long and fuD 
account He calls him ^^a young Gentleman of 
^^ parts and great vigour of mind/* His wife, Eliza- 
beth Cabst, zealously assisted him in every thing* 


He was committed to the Tower in 1658, and broaght 
to trial hj Cromwell. The full account of which is 
given by Clarendon and very particularly noticed by 
Lady Mordaunt, in her own Diary. She was able to 
bribe some of the Judges, of whom there were twenty. 
One of them, Pride, was taken ill, and obliged to 
leave the Court, so that they were divided, one half for 
condemning him, the other saying he was not guilty ; 
whereupon the determination depended on the single 
vote of the President, John Lisle, (who had voted for 
the murder of Charles L,) and he, makings some 
excuses for the justice he was about to do, and ac- 
knowledging many obligations to the mother of the 
prisoner (Elizabeth Howard), pronounced him inno- 
cent for aught appeared to the Court Cromwell 
was so enraged at this, that he sent him back to 
the Tower, but in the end he was prevailed on to 
set him at liberty. He had but a very few days 
enjoyed that liberty, when he engaged himself as 
freely in the King's service as before, and with better 
success. Charles IL, in testimony of his faithful 
services to the hazard of his life and fortune, and as 
a mark to future ages of his great loyalty, advanced 
him to the Peerage, by the title of Baron Moedaunt 
of Ktegate, and Viscount Avalon, by letters 
patent, dated 10th July, 1659. On Charles's landing .

Lord Winchdsea brought up General Monck to his 
Majesty, who invested him with the Garter, and 
Knighted them all three. He was soon afterwards 
made Constable of Windsor Castle; and in June, 



1660, Lord Lieutenant of Surrey. In 1666 his 
Lordship was impeached hy the House of Commons, 
for forcibly ejecting William Taylor and his family, 
from the apartments they occupied in Windsor 
Castle, and other charges, all of which he denied in 
his place in the House of Lords, and put in answers 
to the articles of impeachment, for hearing which a 
day was fixed, but the Parliament shortly afterwards 
being prorogued, the inquiry seems to have been 
entirely abandoned, notwithstanding the vehemence 
with which the House of Commons had taken up the 
matter. Lord Mordaunt having had ^^ great and 
incomposable differences '' with his brother the Earl 
of Peterborough^ about the estate of Syegate, their 
mothers property, Charles II., by the advice of 
the Chancellor Hyde, in 1670, granted it to Lord 
Mordaunt ; on it stood one of the noblest houses in 
the South of England. He died in 1675, in his forty- 
eighth year, and was buried in the Church at Fulham, 
where a magnificent Monument* is erected to his me> 
mory, of white and black Marble, with his effigy in his 
Robes, and a batten in his right hand, as Constable 
of Windsor Castle. He married Elizabeth, second 
daughter and co-heiress with her sister, Philadelphia, 
Lady Lyttleton, of the Honourable Thomas Carey, 
youngest son of Robert, first Earl of Monmouth, 
and had four daughters, Charlotte, who married 
Benjamin Albin ; Carey, who died unmarried ; 
Sophia, who married James Hamilton, of Bangor ;

and Anns, married to James Hamilton, of T0II7- 
more ; and four sons, Ghables, who sncceeded him ; 
Henry ; Lewis ; Osmund ; and Greorge, bora after 
his death. 

Chahlbs Mobdaunt, the eldest son of John, Lord ^ tJoSih '""■ 
Uordaunt) Succeeded his father as second Viscount, 
in 1675 ; his uncle, Henry, Earl of Peterborough, 
as third Earl, in. 1697 ; and his cousin, Mary, 
Duchess of Norfolk, as fourteenth Baron Beanchamp, 
and eighth Baron Mordaunt, in 1705. He rendered 
himself very conspicuous by many remarkable ser- 
vices to his country. He dktinguished himself at 
Tangiers, under the Earl of Plymouth, when it was 
besieged by the Moors. OfL the accession' of James II. 
he was one of the prrndpal arguers in the House of 
Peers against repealing the Test Acts ; and, disliking 
the proceedings of the Court, he went over to Holland. 
On his arrival at the Hague, he was among the first 
of the English Nobility who engaged in the Prince of 
Qrangei^s expedition inta England. Burnet says he 
wag among those whom that Prince chiefly trusted, 
and by whose advice he governed all his motions. 
At the Coronation of William and Mary, 9th April, 
1689, he was created Earl of Monmouth, that he 
might attend at that ceremony as an Earl, having 
been appointed the day before First Lord of the 
Treasury, which office he held five years. In 1692, he 
made the campaign of Flanders under William III. In 
170S, the first of Queen^ Anne, he was sent Crovemor 
to Jamaica, and Commander of the Army and Fleet on 


that expedition. In 1705, his Lordship was declared 
General and Commander-in-Chief of the Forces sent 
to Spain, and joint-Admiral of the Fleet with Sir 
Cloudesley Shovel; for which well-known expedition, 
in which all his actions appear snitahle to the dignity 
of his character, and where he displayed a chivalrous 
courage and conduct worthy of being recorded in any 
age, he got the thanks of the House of Peers in 
January, 1710, for ^^that during the time he had 
^^ the command of the Army in Spain he performed 
^^ many great and eminent services/' The Lord 
Chancellor in his speech to him expressed himself in 
the strongest terms — saying, ^ Had more days been 
'^ allowed me than I have minutes, to call to mind 
^^ the wonderful and amazing success which perpetually 
^^ attended your Lordship in Spain (the effect of your 
<^ Lordship's personal bravery and conduct), I would 
" not attempt the enumerating your particular services, 
*' since I should offend your Lordship by the mention 
^' of such as I could recollect, and give a just occasion 
^ of offence to this Honourable House, by my involun* 
^^ tary omission of the far greater part of them." 
After this he was sent Ambassador to Turin, and on 
his return in 1712, was made Colonel of the Boyal 
Begiment of Horse Guards, and instaUed at Windsor, 
in 1713, Knight of the Garter.' He then went Am- 
bassador to Sicily, where he remained until 1715, 
the year after Queen Anne's death. He was also 
employed by Greorge I. and George IL, as General of 
all the Marine forces in Great Britain. He was a 
Nobleman too well known as a wit, and the friend of 


Swift and Pope, to require much elucidation of his 
character. "He was," says Lord Orford, "one of 
"those men of careless and negligent grace, who 
" scattered a thousand bon-mots and idle verses, which 
"we, painful compilers, gather and hoard, till the 
"owners stare to find themselves authors." Such 
was this Lord — ^^ of an advantageous figure and enter* 
" prising spirit as gallant as Amadis and as brave," 
but a little more expeditious in his journeys^ for he is 
said to have seen more Kings and more postillions 
than any other man in Europe. The following verses 
of Swift's, written on him, show his character and 
genius so strongly that I must give them here : 

Mordanto fills the tramp of Fame, 
The Christian world his deeds prodaim, 
And prints are crowded with his name. 

In journeys he outrides the post. 
Sits up *till midnight with his host, 
Talks politics, and gives a toast. 

Kqows every Prince in Europe's face, 
Flies, like a squib, from place to place, 
And travels not, but runs a race. 

From Paris Gazette a-la-main. 
This day arrived without his train, 
Mordanto in a week from Spain. 

A messenger comes all a-reek, 
Mordanto at Madrid to seek; 
He left the town above a week. 

Next day the post* boy winds his horn, 
And rides through Dover in the mom, 
Mordanto*8 landed from Leghorn.

Heroic aetiona early bred in,

But by his namesake Charles of Sweden. 

His enmity to the Duke of Marlborough, and his 
friendship with Pope, will preserve his name, when 
his genius, too romantic to have laid a solid founda^ 
tion for fiime, and his politics, too disinterested for 
his age and country, shall be equally forgotten. He 
was a man, in short, " who would neither live nor 
^^ die like other mortals.'' ^ Tet even particularities 
*^were becoming in him, as he had a natural ease, 
'^that immediately adopted them, and saved them 
^^ from the air of affectation." His first wife was 
Carey, daughter of Sir Alexander Fraser, of Dotes, 
in Meamshire, in Scotland, who died in 1709, and 


was busied at Turvey. He remained a widower 
twenty-six years, and married his second wife, Anas- 
tatia Bobinson, juat before he went to Lisbon for the 
benefit of his health, where he died the same year, 
on the 10th of October, 1735, aged seventy-seven. 
He was brought over from Lisbon, and interred 
at Turvey, among his ancestors, who almost all lie 
buried there. There is a large three-quarters length 
portrait of him at Castleward, and a half-sized one at 
ToUymore Park. His two sons, John and Henry, 
both died of the small-pox, in 1710. His only daugh- 
ter, Lady Hkn&iitta Mo&DAUirr, married in 1706, D«ebenof6ordM. 
Alexander Gordon, Marquis of Huntley, eldest son 
of George, first Duke of Gordon. In 1716 he be- 
came Duke on the death of his father, and died in 
1728. The Duchess survived her husband thirty-two 
years. She brought up all her children in the Pro- 
testant faith, and upon that account had, in 1735, a 
pension of £1,000 a year, granted by George IL, for 
the better support of herself and children. She died in 
1760, at Preston Hall, in the County of Edinburgh, 
an estate which she purchased, and left to her second 
son. Lord Adam Gordon. My mother* has often met i^ Ad«i go«i.l. 
that Lord Adam, visiting his cousins at Castleward. 
He lived until 1801. There were several letters at 
Castleward some years ago, very neatly written on 
note paper, with envelopes, and signed ^^ Henrietta 
'' Huntly," addressed to her '' Dear Aunt Sophia " 
(Mrs. Hamilton), at Bangor. In one she gave the 

• Th« HonoiumUe Mn. XontgoiMiy. 


account of her first arrival in Scotland on her marriage, 
and that the Duke of Gordon met them with ^^a thou- 
^ sand Gentlemen on horsebacL In others she asked 
her to buy linen for the use .of her house, and said, 
^^ you may judge how much we require, as we sit down 
^ forty every day to dinner/' She mentioned having 
written to her Aunt Anne at ToUymore, for the same 
purpose. In another letter she asked her aunt Sophia 
to get Mr. Hamilton to return Mr. O'Neill* for the 
Borough of Bangor. I have seen and read these 
letters, but they were unfortunately destroyed, with 
other curious old papers, at Gastleward. By this 
marriage of Lady Henrietta Mordaunt, the Baronies 
of Mordaunt and Beauchamp merged into the &mily 
of Gk>rdon, and are now enjoyed by Charlotte, Duchess 
of Kichmond, eldest sister of the late Duke of Gordon, 
whose father assumed them on the death of the sister 
of the last Earl of Peterborough, in 1819.

great Earl of Peterborough and Monmouth, died 
twenty-five years before his father. He was Member 
of Parliament for Chippenham ; and Colonel of the 
Grenadiers in the 1st Foot Guards, at the battle of 
Blenheim, in 1704, where he lost his left arm. He 
died of the small pox in April, 1710, and was buried 

^""u^nt!^ at Turvey. His only brother, Henry Mordaunt, 

who was in the Navy, died unmarried two months

the Army, and served in two Parliaments for Not-

Sir Scrope Howe, first Viscount Howe, and widow 
of Thomas Herbert, eighth Earl of Pembroke and

secondly, Elizabeth, daughter of Samuel Hamilton, 
but died without children, in 1767. 

Charles Mordaunt, the eldest son of Lord 4thE»iofFetw 


Mordaunt, succeeded his grandfather, Charles, the 
great Earl, as fourth Earl, and also succeeded to the 
property of his great-uncle. Sir Peter Fraser, in 
Scotland. He married twice. His first wite was 
Mary, daughter of John Cox, of London, who was 
the mother of his two daughters, Lady Frances, 
who married the Rev. Samuel Bulkeley, of Hatfield ; 
and Lady Mart Anastatia Grace. His second 
wife, Robiniana, daughter of Colonel Brown, was 
mother of his two sons, Charles Henrt, his suc- 
cessor ; and Powlett, who died young. The Earl 
died in 1779, and 

Charlbs Henrt Mordaunt, the only surviving 
son of the fourth Earl, became the fifth, and was the 
last Earl of Peterborough. He lived a private life, 
was addicted to literature, and collected a good

in 1814, when the Earldoms of Peterborough 
and Monmouth, and the Yiscountt of Mordaukt, 
of Ayalon, became extinct All the honors of this 
great family, except the Barony of Mordannt, died 
with him ; bat their celebrity and noble deeds had 
gone before, as there is nothing to record worthy of 
note of either the last Earl or his father.

second sister of the last Earl, became deventh 
Baroness Mordaunt, on the death of her brother, in 
1814. She enjoyed that honor five years, and died 
unmarried, in 1819. The Baronies of Mordaunt, 
and Beauchamp of Bletsoe, at her death reverted

the next heir, being the grandson of Lady Henrietta

I most DOW return to the younger children of Lord 
Mordaunt and Elizabeth Carey, and give some 
aooount of them and their posterity : 

General Habrt Mordaunt was their second son, own^ Monuiiiit. 
and next brother to Charles, the great and celebrated 
Earl of Peterborough and Monmouth. He was 
Treasurer of the Ordnance, and was Member for 
Brackly, and afterwards for Sichmond, until his 
death, in 1720. He was twice married, and had 
eight children ; but his posterity, by his sons, ceased 
in the third generation. His first wife was Margaret, 
daughter of Sir Thomas Spencer, of Yarnton, in 
Oxfordshire, and his second, Penelope, daughter and 
heiress of William Tipping, of Ewelm, in Oxfordshire. 
One son. Sir John, and two daughters, Elizabeth 
and Penelope only survived him. His portrait, head Portmit. 
size, taken when a boy, is at ToUymore Park, and 
also at Castleward. 

Sir John Mordaunt, who was his third son, was sir John Mordaunt. 
Enight of the Bath, a M^jor-General, and Member 
of Parliament for Cockermouth, but does not appear 
to have married. 

Lewis Mordaunt, the third son of the celebrated ^""SSSSiC'^ 
John, Lord Mordaunt, and Elizabeth Carey, and 
brother of Charles, the great Earl, was also in the 
Army, as Brigadier-GeneraL He died in 1712. He 
had two wives. His first wife, Anne, daughter of 
Boger Martin, son of Sir Boger Martin, Bart, of 
Long*Melford, Sufiblk, was mother of Colonel 


coionei^oh^ie. Mar- Oharles Morfaunt, who married, first, Chdriotte, 

daughter of Thomas Mainwaring, of Cheshire, by 
whom he had no children. He married, secondly, 
Anne, fourth daughter of Sir Scrope Howe, first 
Viscount Howe, by whom he had three sons, one of 
osbtrt Moidaunt whom, Osbert Mordaunt, was living in 1808. 

Lewis Mordaunt married secondly, Mary, daughter

by some impostors, that Osmund had only been 
wounded in the battle, and that he had been carried 
off the field to some farm-house, where he recovered, 
and remained afterwards, having married the farmer's 
daughter, and that a descendant of his was coming 
forward to claim the titles. But this story soon died

at'seventeen, to Thomas Butler, sixth Viscount Ikerrin, 
and was mother of Somerset Hamilton Butler, first 
Earl of Carrick, who was grandfather of the late Earl, 
who died in 1837 ; of Juliana, Countess of Belmore; counuMofBeiniow 
and of Ladj Harriet Forde ; and great grandfather i^y Hamtt Forde 
of Harriet, the present Lady Bangor. 

Anne-Catherins Hamilton, the eldest daughter 

of Mrs. Hamilton, of Bangor, was married at eighteen, 

three years before her sister, and not much to her 

mother's satisfaction, to Michael Wabd, who was 

then a handsome young Barrister, the second son of 

Bernard Ward, of Gastleward, who, in 1690, when 

Sheriff of the County of Down, was killed in a duel 

by Jocdyn Hamilton, brother of Jiames Hamilton, of 

ToUymore, who was mortally wounded at the same 

time. Michael Ward, by the death of his elder brother, 

Nicholas, became possessed of Castleward, and was 

afterwards Justice of the King's Bench. He was an 

excellent and a dever man. He is mentioned in 

the History of the County of Down, as the first person 

who introduced marl as a manure. He was also a great 

promoter of the linen trade. I have in my possession,

to which are now added my own initials, and the date 
of my marriage. It was given to me by my aunt, her 
granddaughter and namesake, Anne-Catherine Ward. 
Mrs. Ward died in 1760. She sarvived her hus- 
band but a short time, and left by her will £300, 
to be laid out on a monument, to be erected in the 
Church at Bangor, to the memory of her father and 
mother, who were buried there. It is very handsome, 
of pure white marble, — a figure as large as life 
weeping over an urn, surmounting the tablet The 
inscription on the tablet does not do justice to the 
monument^ It is very deficient in giving information, 
and ends with an absurd allusion to the Hamilton 
connexions. There is a large portrait of Mrs. Ward 
and another of her sister. Lady Ikerrin, in the hall 
at Tollymore Park, and one also of their brother, 
James Hamilton, who died a boy — ^all three taken 
when they were young. At Castle ward there is a 
very large portrait of Mrs. Ward, taken after her 
marriage, and a very handsome one of Judge Ward to 
match. There is also a smaller one of the Judge in 
his robes. They left one son, Beknard, who succeeded 
him ; and two daughters, Anne and Sophia. 

Sophia Ward, the youngest, married Arthur Upton, 
of Castle Upton, in the County of Antrim, but had no 
children. His brother and heir, Clotworthy Upton, 
was tiie first Viscount Templeton, father of John

Bbbnard Ward, the only son of Judge Ward, ut vi^coum Bangor 
succeeded him at Castleward, and was Member for 
the County of Down from 1745 till 1770, when he 
was made a Peer, by Greorge III., under the title of 
Baron Castleward, and Viscount Bangor. He 
built the present house at Castleward. There is a 
ridiculous story told that he and his wife differed 
about the architecture of it— -and, in consequence, one 
side of the house has a beautiful Grecian front, and 
the other is not very good Gothic His portrait is at p^'"^"^^ 
Castleward, with the plan of the house in his hand. 
His wife was Lady Anne Bligh, the eldest daughter 
of John, first Earl of Damly, and the widow of 
Bobert Hawkins Mi^, of Gill-Hatl, in the County 
of Down, to whom she was not more than four or five 


years married when he died, at Seaforde, during a 
great hunting parly, at which most of the Gentlemen 
of the County were assembled. As he had been 
Member for the County of Down for twenty years, 
he recommended to the Gentlemen to choose Bernard 
Ward as his successor. Mr. Ward not only succeeded 
him in his seat for the County, but married his widow 
also, in about three years after his death. Lady

persons in this, pedigree: v\ i 

"**" tS^SSS?***' ^^"^ MoBDAUNT, the youngest daughter of Lord 

Moi:daunt and.Elizabelli Carey, yf)iO married Jj^mes 
Hamilton of Tolltmors. She was a clever, sensible, 
managing person, which is evidently shown by her 
letters, many of which are still at ToUymore Park, 
mostly a!ldres8e4 to her husband during his long 
^ absences in England. During one of these absences, 


he died in London, in 1701. She sarvived him many 
years, and died in 1736. Soon afber his death she 
purchased the Dondalk estate for her son, from 
Marcus Trevor, second Viscount Dungannon. She 
improved the town, built a Charity School,* &sc., &c. 
She took great care of the education of her only son, 
James, afterwards Earl of Clanbrassil, who was left, 
with his three sisters, under her guardianship. There 
is a very handsome portrait of her in the Cloisters v<ntniL 
at ToUymore Park, and one of her husband to match. 
She was married before her eldest sister, Sophia; 
their husbands were first cousins, being both great- 
grandsons of Hans Hamilton, the Vicar of Dunlop, 
the father of the noted Lord Claneboye. 

* S«6 Appendix, Note K. 


The ancient and far-spreading family of Hamilton 
is descended from Beenabd, a near relative of Rollo, BenukHi 
the first Duke of Normandy. Roger de Beaumont, ^^^^ 
the direct descendant of Bemard| came to England, 
with William the Conqueror, and had ninety-one 
Manors granted to him for his portion of the spoil 
His son, Eobebt, was made Eabl of Leicester, by Robert, E«ri of i^i. 
Henry I., and was grandfather of Bobebt, the third 
Eabl of Leigesteb, whose son. Sib William, surnamed sir wm. Hamilton. 
Hamilton, from the place of his birth, Hambledon, in 
the County of Leicester, was father of Sib Gilbebt 
Hamilton, who settled in Scotland about 1323. He siroubert 
fled from England for having mortally wounded John 
le Despencer, a favourite of Edward 11. ; in his flight 
he was closely pursued into a wood, he and his 
servant changed clothes with two wood-cutters, and, 
taking their saw, were cutting an oak tree through 
when the pursuers passed by : this event is the origin 
of the family crest. The fourth in descent from Sir 
Gilbert, was 

Sib John Hamilton, Lord of Cadyow, or Kadshaw, ^IJf ^^S^;;"* 
in the County of Lanark, who lived in the reign of 


Kobert III., of Scotland, and married, in 1388, Janet, 
daughter of Sir James Douglas, of Dalkeith. He 
was father of Sir James Hamilton, ancestor of the 
ThoDiaiL Marquis of Abercorn; and of Thomas Hamilton, 
ancestor of 

HausHHii.uton.vioar Hans HAMILTON, thc Yicar of Danlop, who mar- 

of Ouulop. * 

ried Margaret Denham, daughter of the Laird of 

_ * 

Wisheals, had six sons, who all came to Ireland in 
the seventeenth century, mostly following their elder 


i-ord cianeboye. James HAMILTON, thc cldcst of thc slx SOUS, bcgau 
his career as a schoolmaster in Dublin. His school 
was in Ship-street, and Sir James Fullarton, after- 
wards tutor to Charles I., was his usher, though the 
Peerages and many of the family say he was a great 
man in disguise, who was to hold a correspondence 
with the English Court, and to inform King ^ James 
how matters stood, so as to prepare the way to 
his succeeding to the Throne on the death of Queen 
Elizabeth. Birch, in his "Life of Henry Prince 
"of Wales," however, gives this account of him : — 
Sir June. Fullarton. " There was a Scots Gentleman, of great learning 

" and parts, sent out of Ireland to be chief governor 
" for the Duke (Charles L) This Gentleman, whose 
" name was Sir James Fullarton, who had been at 
"first usher of the Free School in Dublin, while 
" another Scotsman, Mr. James Hamilton, afterwards 
" Knighted, and at last created Viscount Claneboye 
" in Ireland, was master of it The first foundations 


^ of their fortunes being laid at Dubliiiy in the latter 
" end of Queen Elizabeth's reign, by conveying the 
" letters of some great Lords of England, who wor- 
^^ shipped the rising sun, to King James, and his 
^* letters back to them, that way being chosen as more 
" safe than the direct Northern road." 

On the completing of Dublin College, in 1593, Mr. 
Hamilton, for his extraordinary learning and merit, 
was made Senior Fellow ; and James Usher, after- 
wards the celebrated Archbishop of Armagh, and 
who had been educated at the Ship-street school, 
became again his pupiL Sir James FuUarton being a 
great favourite at Court, and one who loved money, 
did not desert his old master — and, no doubt, was 
well paid for it. Mr. Hamilton got large possessions 
in Ulster, through his assistance, in a manner which 
I must now relate. 

Con O'Neil having been put in prison in Carrick- con oTfeui. 
fergus, for a fray between his servants and the 
English soldiers in Belfast, a few months before 
Queen Elizabeth's death, and having continued a 
prisoner for several months after the accession of 
James I., but with greater liberty to walk about, as 
James had been a secret favourer of the O'Neils and 
McDonnells, to secure them in his own interest in 
Ireland ; so Con the more easily made his escape from 
Carrickfergus, in which he was assisted by Hugh sirHu.Mootgoratiy. 
Montgomery, sixth Laird of Braidstane, a younger 
branch of the house of Eglintoun, who took him to 
his own house in Scotland, and undertook to get him 
pardoned, and to have the' one-half of his great estate 


secured to himself by Letter^ Patent from the King, 
provided that, for this service, Con made over to him 
the other half of it, which Con agreed to, and a deed 
was made to that purpose, which was registered in 
the Council Book at Ayr. Hugh Montgomery had 
great interest at Court through his brother, George 
Montgomery, then Dean of Norwich, and Chaplain 
to the King, and afterwards Bishop of Meath, who had 
been one of James's secret friends in England during 
the last years of Elizabeth. So, after arranging all 
matters with Con O'Neil at Braidstane, they went 
to London together. The King having been prepared 
for them, Hugh Montgomery was Knighted, and, on 
his application. Con was graciously received at Court, 
their petition granted, and orders given for Letters 
Patent being made under the Great Seal of Ireland 
for the two parts of Con O'NeiVs property. But, 
ouitgoBitfyMss.) however, the affisiir " getting wind at Court," in spite 

of their secrecy, Sir James FuUarton '^made sug. 
^^ gestions to the King that the lands granted to Sir 
^^ Hugh and Con, were vast territories, too large for 
^^ two men of their degree, and might serve for three 
^^ Lords' estates ; therefore, his Majesty, who was 
^^ already said to be over*hastily liberal, had been 
^^ overreached as to the quantity and value of the 
" lands ; and, therefore, begged his Majesty that Mr. 
'^ James Hamilton, who had iurnished himself for 
^ some years last past with intelligence from Dublin, 
^ very important to his Majesty, might be admitted to 
^a third share of that which was intended to be 
** granted to Sir Hugh Montgomery and Con O'Neil ; " 


whereupon a stop was put to the Patent, and the King 
sent for Sir Hugh, and told him privately what he 
now intended, and that for the loss he would have 
in not getting the full half of Con*s estate, he would 
compensate him out of the Abbey Lands and Impro- 
priations, which in a few months he was to grant in 
fee, and that he would also abstract out of Con's 
share the whole of the Great Ardes, for his and Mr. 
Hamiltons benefit, that they might have the com- 
mand of the coast ; and that the rest should be laid 
off about Castlereagh, though Con wished for it, but 
it was ^' too great a favour for such an Irishman/' 
Sir Hugh submitted to all the King proposed, so Mr. 
Hamilton was sent for to Dublin, by Sir James 
Fullarton ; ^' all which contrivances brought money 
^^ to Sir James Fullarton, for whose sake and request 
" it was readilyer done by the King." New Letters 
Patent were accordingly ordered to pass under the 
Great Seal of Ireland ; in which Sir James Fullarton 
obtained also from the King, that the Patent should 
be passed in Mr. James Hamilton's name alone, 
paying £100 a year to the King, and that it should 
be inserted that the lands were in trust for himself, 
Sir Hugh, and Con O'Neil. The Patent is dated, Th« p»^%. 
16th April, 1605, and immediately after it^ a tri- 
partite deed was made between these three persons. 
There had been a Patent of these lands granted by 
Queen Elizabeth to Sir Thomas Smith, one of her 
Secretaries, on the forfeiture of the O'Neil's by 
rebellion. His heirs gave great trouble to Hamilton 
and Montgomery at two different periods ; but it was 


decided at law that Sir Thomas Smith's claim was 
null and void, he not having performed certain con- 
ditions. Sir Thomas's heir, in his petition, calb 
James Hamilton *^a cunning Scotch schoolmaster/' 
Mr. Hamilton was Knighted by King James, and, 
together with Sir Hugh Montgomery, planted the 
country granted to them with Scotch and English 
Protestants. They were both Privy Councillors 
before 1612, and were both members for the County 
of Down in the Parliament of 1613. Sir Hugh 
Montgomery was created Viscount Montgomery of 
the Great Ardes (his grandson was created Earl of 
""^'''JUSJn*^**^ Mount-Alexander), and Sir James Hamilton a short 

time after, in 1622, became Viscount Clanebote. 
He died in 1643, and was buried at Bangor. There 
Portnat is a very fine large portrait of him at Castleward. 
He married three times. His first wife was Penelope 
Cooke ; his second was Ursula Brabazon, sixth 
daufghter of Edward, first Lord Brabazon of Ardee, 
and sister cf William, first Earl of Meath — she died 
in 1625 ; and hi& third was Jane, daughter of Sir 
John Phillips, Bart., of Picton Castle, in Pembroke- 
shire. She survived him, and was mother of his only 
son, James Hamilton. 

igtB*riofcunbr«»a Jambs HAMILTON, the only son of Lord Claneboye^ 

became second Viscount He had suffered much 
with his father in the service of King Charles I. He 
raised a Begiment of Foot, and a Troop of Horse, 
which he maintained eight years, and joined with the 
Marqtds of Ormonde against Cromwell. The King^ 


for hiff loyalty, created him, at Oxford, in 1644, 
Earl of Glanbrassil, in the County of Armagh; 
but, on accotint of his fidelity to the King, his estate 
was sequestered, and for six years and a half all the 
profits arising from it were^ received by Cromwell. 
He was included among the Protestants with whom 
the Protector capitulated to live peaceably at home, 
and to regain their estates upon a composition settled 
by Parliament In 1654, Lord Clanbrassil com- 
pounded for £9,435, of which he paid about the half. 
There is a yeiy comical story told of him in the 
Montgomery manuscripts (page 210), of his adyenture 
with a brownie. He married, in 1635^ Lady Anxte, ^""^J.^*^ 
eldest daughter of Henry Carey, second Earl of 
Monmouth. She surviyed him, and afterwards mar- 
ried Sir Robert Maxwell, of Waringstown, in the 
County of Down, Bart., and died in 1688. The 
Earl died 20th June, 1659, and was buried with 
great splendour at Bangor, beside his father, on the 
29th of July. The procession was made from a 
payilion in the fields. He had three sons, James, 
Hbnrt, and Hans, two only of whom survived him ; 
and by his will, dated 8th June, 1659, he settles that 
if his sons die without children, that all his estates, 
after paying his debts, be divided into five equal 
parts amongst the sons of his five uncles. He left 
his two sons to the care of their mother and grand* 
mother, all to live together in the Castle of Eilly- 
leagh, with a competent number of useful servants ; 
earnestly praying that his two sons might be brought 
up in the true Protestant religion, and after the best

Henbt Hamilton, his eldest surviving son, who 
became second Earl of Clanbrassil, was twelve years 
of age at his father's death. He was sent to Christ 
Church, Oxford, where he took his degree on the 
28th April, 1663. He was a Privy Councillor of 
Charles IL He died in Dublin, in 1675, and was 
buried in Christ Church. He had no children, and 
left his estates, contrary to his father's will, to his 
wife. Lady Alice, daughter of Henry Moore, first 
Earl of Drogheda, who, in the year after his death, 
married John, Lord Burgany, of Scotland. She 
died two years after her second marriage, and be- 
queathed to her brother Henry, third Earl of Drogheda, 
the estates she had received from Lord Clanbrassil. 
In consequence, he assumed the name of Hamilton ;

but, after an expensive lawsuit, he sold his interest 
in them to Sir Hans Hamilton and James Hamilton, 
of Bangor, and their heirs for ever, by deeds dated 
February, 1679, for £2,400. With this Henry, 
second Earl of Clanbrassil, all the titles became 
extinct His portrait is now at Castleward. 

I must now return to give the descent of the five uncles 
mentioned in the will of the first Earl of ClanbrassiL 

Archibald Hamilton, of Halcraig, was the eldest ^""'*"^^**^ 
uncle, next brother to the noted Lord Claneboye, 
and second son of the Vicar of Dunlop. He had two 
sons, James and Gawen, living at the death of Earl 
Henry, and they became possessed of one-fifth of the 
Claneboye estates. 

James Hamilton, of Neilsbrooke, the eldest, died J«a« E»jnaum, 
in 1683, and left an only daughter and heiress, Anne, 
who married Hans Stephenson, and died in 1707, 
leaving a son, James Stephenson, whose eldest 
daughter and co-heiress, Dorcas Stephenson, married 
Sir John Blackwood, of Ballyleidy, and was in 1801

of his descendants — ^he being our ancestor. He was 
Member for Eillyleagh in the first Parliament of 
James I., in 1613, and married Jane, daughter of Sir 
John Melville. He died in 1627, leaving four sons, 
James, John, who died without children^ Hans, and 
William ; and three daughters. 

James Hamilton, his eldest son, succeeded to '""•^SSl?"''*' 
the property bequeathed by the first Earl of Clan- 
brassil, to whom he was first cousin, and he, along 
with Sir Hans HamUton, was the purchaser of 
Lord Drogheda's claim on the estate for £2,400, 
in 1669. His wife, Margaret Eynaston, was the 
daughter of Francis Eynaston, of Pontey Besley, in 
Shropshire, and Saul, in the County of Down, by his 
wife, Catherine, sister of Sir Edward Trevor. She 
appears to have become an heiress on the death of 
her only brother, Edward Eynaston, Member for 
Downjpatrick in 1634. James Hamilton was Member 




for Bangor in 1639. He left one son, James, and 
one daughter, Catherine.

j«B» Hamaton. James HAMILTON, of ToUymorc, the eldest son of 

William, of Erinagh, married the Honourable Anne

promoter of a general rising of the Protestants of Ireland 
in 1689, to shake off the tyranny of King James's go- 
vernment ; and was empowered by the Gentlemen of 
Ulster to fix on a proper person in Dublin to carry their 
addresses to the Prince of Orange, on his arrival there. 
His endeavours to defend his religion and his country 
did not rest here, for he and his first cousin, James Ha-

Ladt Anxe Hamilton, his only sister, married, 
in 1752, Bobert Jocelyn, first Earl of Roden. Anne, 
Princess of Orange, eldest daughter of George II., 
was her godmother. Following the example of her 
great-grandmother, the excellent Lady Mordaunt, 
she kept a diary of her life, which she left to her 
eldest daughter, Harriet, Countess of Massereene, 
and is now preserved in a cabinet at Antrim Castle. 
She was an exemplary character through a long life, 
the last five years of which she spent a widow at 
ToUymore Park, where she died in 1802, and was 
buried at Dundalk, where a monument is erected to 
her memory.t Her picture is in the Cloisters at 
ToUymore Park, painted when she was far advanced 
in years. She had three sons and six daughters. 
Her husband, the Earl of Soden, was only son of 
Chancellor Jocelyn, who was descended firom a long 
line of ancestry. 

The Chancellor Jocelyn had a pedigree in his 
possession, entitled, "The true and perfect descent 
"of the ancient and honourable family of JoceljnDf 
^^ inhabiting in the Counties of Hertford and Essex, 
"firom the Norman Conquest to this day, by the 

• Set Appendix, Note N. •f 8m Appendix, Note O. 


^^ space of 600 years and more, being now twenty-three 
^'generations — collected from the public records of 
^'tbis Kingdom, and private evidences of the said 
** family. Done in the year of our Lord, 1712." 
Sir Henry Chauncey and Dr. Salmon, in the History 
of the County of Hertford, give the pedigree of the 
family down to Sir Strange Jocelyn, second Baronet 
There was another, more ancient, being drawn out 
in the reign of Charles L, and thus approved of by 
Sir John Jocelyn, 29th March, 1731— "This pedi- 
^'gree seems the work of an exact, careful, and 
^' learned hand — corrects many mistakes in the pedi- 
" gree of the family, and is by much superior to any 
" I have seen printed or written." 


It is supposed that the Joceltns left Britain with 
the Romans, in 426, and, with others of the brave 
Soman British soldiers, settled in Little Brittanj, 
and that there they gave their name to the town of 
Joselin, or Gosselin, in Upper Brittany. " However (Lo^g*^ 
"this may be, the family derives its descent from 
^^ Charlemagne with more certainty than the houses 
" of Loraine and Guise, who so highly boast of it" 
" The prime ancestor of the family " is said to have 
been a younger brother of Godfrey, Duke of Brabant, 
ancestor of the Northumberland family, by his 
younger son, Joceline, Lord of Petworth, in Sussex, 
who married Agnes, daughter and heir of Percy, 
Baron of Topclifb, who, therefore, assumed the name 
of Percy. His male line terminated in a Joceline, 
in the year 1670. This younger brother of the 
Duke of Brabant is said to have married Grerbucca, 
daughter of Lotharius, King of France, and to have 
been father of Egidius Jocelyn : but I cannot discover 
his name, nor make the times agree, for Godfrey, 
Duke of Brabant, died in 1139, and Egidius, his 
supposed nephew, came into England about the year 


1045. However, although I cannot to my satisfitctian 
ascertain about his father, it appears that 
din. jooeiyn. Egidius Joceltn was a Nobleman of Brittany, 
and that he passed over into England in the time of 
Edward the Oonfessor, a great favouoer of strangers. 

Sir Gilbert joceijii. SiR GiLBERT JocELTN was the son of Egidius : 

he married an Englishwoman, and returned into 
Normandy. He came back to England with William 
the Conqueror, and had large possessions granted to 
him in Lincolnshire, among which were the Lordships 
of Sempringham and Tyrington. He had two sons, 
Gilbert and Egidius or Geoffrey. 

Saint Gubert GILBERT JocELYN, the eldest son, was born at 
Sempringham, in the reign of the Conqueror. He 
was educated in France, and, after his return, ap- 
plied himself gratuitously to the instruction of youth 
in literature and religion. He became Chaplain to 
the Bishop of Lincoln, and held the Church of 
Sempringham and Tyrington; hut^ showing a con- 
tempt for honours and preferments, refused the Arch- 
deaconry of Lincoln, dispensed his large patrimony to 
the poor, and sequestered himself wholly from the 
world, having founded a Monastery in 1146 in his 
own house at Sempringham, where he shut himself up 
with seven virgins ; he there subsequently established 
Monks of the Order of the Augustins, to whom he 
committed the care of the Abbey. The Nuns were 
of the Cistercian Institution of the Order of St 
Benedict. All this was done by the advice and under 


tke authority; of the Bishop of Lincoln, and. was 

appro¥ed of by three successive^ Pop^, Eugenius 

IIL, Adrian lY., and Alexander IIL This order 

of Saint Gilbert, called the Gilbertines, increased so 

much, that at the dissolution of the Monasteries by 

Henry VIIL, there were twenty^one of that order in 

England, containing nearly 1200 persons. He died 

at the great age of 106, in 1189, and was buried in 

Saint Andrew's Church, of Sempringham. In 1202 

he was canonized by Pope Innocent IIL, and the 4 th 

of February is the day of his commemoration. There 

is at this present moment a fine large portrait of Ponndt.

ried, in 1249, Maud, daughter and co-heir of Sir John 
Hide, of Hide-Hall, in Sabridgeworth, in Hertford-

Manor of Hide-Hall into the family, in whose pos* 
session it has continued ever since, a period of nearly 
six hundred years. In the Conqueror's time, it was 
included among the lands of Geoffrey de Magnaville ; 
and was afterwards called Hide-Hall, from the Hides 
who succeeded the Mandevilles. It was repaired 
and modernized in the beginning of this century, by 
Bobert Jocelyn, second Earl of Boden. The mother 
of Maud Hide, was Elizabeth Sudeley, daughter of

The magnificent seat of Dbatt0N| in Northamp- 
tonshire, for two centuries the property and residence 
of the Mordaunts, still stands proudly pre-eminent 
amongst its neighbours, and its walls are still covered 
with portraits of many generations of that family, 
though it is upwards of one hundred and thirty years 
since it passed into other hands: and, although it 
never was bought or sold, its transitions from one 
proprietor to another have been numerous, and, in 
some cases, singular. 

Before the Conquest, it was in the possession of 
Oswinus, a famous Saxon Nobleman. William the 
Conqueror, in dividing his newly-acquired dominions 
among his followers, allotted Drayton and its appen- 
dages to Alberic de Vere, who was father of Aubrey 
de Vere, the Lord High Chamberlain of Henry L 
His eldest son was Aubrey de Vere, first Earl of 
Oxford, and his second, Bobert de Vere, to whom 
he gave the Lordship of Drayton as his patri- 
mony. On it then stood ^^a fair, ancient Castle,'' 
encompassed with four large high walls, embattled 
round with such fortifications as were necessary in 
those times. He and his posterity becoming so a^' 
tached to it, his grandson, Walter de Vere, assumed 
Drayton as his surname, and under that name the 


family continued to possess it until the reign of Edward 
III., when Catherine of Drayton married Sir Henry 
Greene, Lord Chief Justice of England ; and her 
nephew, Sir John Drayton, from what inducement 
does not appear, settled his Lordship of Drayton 
upon his cousin. Sir Henry Greene, the second son 
of the Chief Justice, to the prejudice of his own son, 
Sir Baldwin of Drayton. It continued in the family 
of Greene for four generations^ till the time of Ed- 
ward IV,, when Constance Greene, the only daughter 
and heiress of H-enry Greene, the then Lord of 
Drayton, carried it into the family of Stafford, by her 
marriage with John Stafford, first Earl of Wiltshire, 
third son of Humphrey Stafford, first Duke of Buck- 
ingham, but on the death of her only son, Edward 
Stafford, second Earl of Wiltshire, without children, 
it returned to the heirs of Isabella Greene, the sister 
of that Henry Greene. She had married Sir Richard 
Yere^ of Addington, and her granddaughter, Elizabeth 
de Yere as sole heiresa, carried it again out of the 
&milie8 of Greerie and de Yere into thatof Mordaunt, 
in the reign of Henry YIL, by her marriage with 
John, the first Baron Mordaunt, who had, however, 
a dispute for many years about this noble Lordship 
with Edward Staffoid, third Duke of Buckingham, 
and George Talbot, fi)urtibL Earl of Shrewsbury, both 
claiming it as heirs to Edward, Earl of Wiltshire, 
which terminated in Lord Mordaunt's getting full 
possession of it, having proved his title in right of his 
wife. He was again in danger of losing it, after it 
had become his favorite residence, by Henry YilL, 


nvho, not finding him zealously inclined towards the 
reformed religion, being urged by his enemies to force 
him to exchange it for some of the Abbey lands, 
newly acquired by the Crown. He could not have 
managed to have resisted this vexatious order had it 
not, fortunately for him, been put an end to by the 
death of the King, and he was allowed to live on in 
peace, and died there in the second year of Queen 
Elizabeth. His grandson, Lewis, the third Lord 
Mordaunt, added much to the noble old Castle, the 
beloved seat of his grandmother, about the year 1584. 
That date is now very conspicuous on the house, cut 
on a stone, placed high on the wall of one of the inner 
Courts. John Mordaunt, the first, and Henry, the 
second, Earl of Peterborough, added to it, and em- 
bellished it considerably. The latter had his initials, 
and those of his wife, interwoven in many of die 
ornamental parts of the building. It was for a short 
time in the possession of Henry Howard, seventh 
Duke of Norfolk, he having married, in 1677, the 
Lady Mary Mordaunt, only child and heiress of 
Henry, second Earl of Peterborough ; he, however, 
divorced her in 1700, and she married Sir John 
Germaine, in 1702, and died without children in 
1705, leaving Drayton and all belonging to her to 
her second husband,* who erected a costly Monument 
to her in St Peter's Church, LufTwick. 

Sir John was a man of low origin and ignoble 
name, and had taken to himself the higher-sounding

one of Germainey fttid baring become master of a 
fine estate, alter Lady Maiy's death, married Ladj 
Elizabeth, second datrghter of Charles Berkeley, 
second Earl of Berkeley, and made it his residence, 
and died there in 1718. He had no children, so he 
left by will this magnificent seat of Drayton, and all 
he had so unfortunately acquired of the Mordaunt 
prot)erty, to his second wife. Lady Elizabeth, a most 
excellent and pious woman, who constantly resided 
there, a widow for fifty-one years, doing all the good in 
her power, and dying in 1769, lies buried at Drayton, 
in the Parish Church of St Peter's, Luffwick, in 
which are a great number of ancient Monuments 
of the old proprietors of Drayton. At her death 
another transition of this ancient seat, as extraordinary 
as any of them, took place. She willed it to one 
who seems to have been no relation of hers, or those 
she derived it from. Lord George Sackville, third 
son of Lionel, first Duke of Dorset. He took the 
name of Germaine along with the estate, and was 
created, in 1782, Viscount Sackville, of Drayton, 
and was succeeded by his son, Charles, as second 
Viscount Sackville, who is now the fifth Duke of 
Dorset and the possessor of Drayton. He succeeded 
to the Dukedom in 1815, on the premature death of 
George John Frederick Sackville, the fourth Duke, 
who was killed by a fall from his horse, while hunting 
near Powerscourt Drayton is likely to make one tran- 
sition more, even in our time, for the Duke is seventy- 
one years of age, and unmarried ; and the only child 
of his only brother George, who died in 1836, is 


Garc^ioe Sackville, lAo married^ ia 1837, Ckorge 
Stopfbrdy eldest son of the Honourable and Rer. 
Sichard Bruce Stopford, son of James George, tliird 
Earl of Courtown, and Hector of Barton Seagrave, 
in Northamptonshire. 

Being very anxious to see this venerable seat of 
some of my ancestors, I went there in Maj, 1837, 
and as the fiunilj were in London, we were at liberty 
to go over all the house. It is very extensive, and 
has some very large rooms in it The largest is the 
library, quite at the top of the house, well stocked 
with books and valuable curiosities ; off it are two 
small rooms, or closets, for retired reading rooms, one 
of them very curiously decorated, by Elizabeth, Coun- 
tess of Peterborough, with coloured glass and <shina, 
and her initials, E. P., appearing every where in tbe or- 
naments of the room. In the centre of the building is 
a large room, called the dining room, in the old style, 
off which <^ned other rooms and two rtair-eases. The 
walls of tiiis dining room or ball, are covered with 
' Mordaiunt portraits, in high preservation and of an- 
cient date, two of them at least nearly three hundred 
years old, that is tiiose of the second and third Lord 
Mordaunts. The fine of portraiits continue for every 
generation to the last of the name who possessed 
that mansion, the Lady Mary Mordaunt, some time 
Duchess of Norfolk. Through a little ante-room off 
this large room is the entrance to two tapestry rooms, 
in one of which is a rich velvet bed, and the walls 
entirely hung wltSi tapestry and decorated, as is also 
the bed, with ooats of tirms, done in needle-work, the 

m ^ 

Mordannt and Howard quartered with O'Brien. 
The second is a sitting room, with Scripture pieces 
wrought in the tapestry hangings, with which the 
walls are covered. There are various bed-rooms, 
some modern and some ancient ; an upper drawing* 
room, furnished with yellow satin, in which are 
curious old pictures, among them those of Lord and 
Lady Hunsdon ; a lower drawing-room and a dining- 
room, both having furniture of modern date, looking 
out upon green terraces, yew hedges, straight ponds, 
&c. But the most striking part of all is the approach. 
The first thing to be seen among the stately rows of 
trees, extending across the entire front of the castel- 
lated mansion, on a beautiful green sward, unbroken 
by any gravelled approach, is a magnificent high 
iron railing and gates, beautifully wrought, twisted 
into all the fancy shapes, the fashion of the day, with 
the letters P. P., the initials of Penelope, Countess of 
Peterborough, interwoven, and surmounted by an 
Earl's Coronet, proclaiming their antiquity ; two 
centuries must have passed since they were erected 
there. Through the centre gate we drove to a large 
a^hed gateway, with a close massive wooden gate, 
which let us into a square paved court, the opposite 
side of which was the entrance hall. It is spacious 
and handsome, of an oblong shape, with the windows 
down one side. The walls are covered with fine 
paintings. At one end is a magnificent picture of 
Henry, Duke of Norfolk, on horseback, as large as 
life, particularly attractive. Crossing again the square 
paved court, in the left hand corner there is a passage 


leading to the Chapel, which is rather a large one, 
but particularly remarkable for the infinity of coats 
of arms with which it is decorated, the ceiling and 
walls being entirely covered with them, emblazoned 
in their proper colours, and also on the windows in 
stained glass, displaying the arms of the various 
proprietors of Drayton. Lady Elizabeth Grermaine 
added hers, and refitted the Chapel, which she kept 
in good order. 

I shall now add an account of some of the Por- 
traits : 

Henry Howard, seventh Duke of Norfolk, first 
husband of Lady Mary Mordaunt, d. 1706, a

daughter of Thomas Howard, third Duke of 
Norfolk, born 1577," died 1639. She was daugh- 
ter of Thomas Howard, Viscount Bindon, and

condly, to Edward Seymour, Earl of Hertford,

mond, who died in 1624. A yery old, stiff picture. 

I saw these Pictures at Drayton House, near 
Thrapston, in Northamptonshire, in May, 1837.

SherifEand poor JocelTU, they were both buried yesterday. Jocelin 
was liasely kild by a PiatoU, w^ the Sheriff carried unknown to 
yt Brother, and shot him with it, tho' he called out it was not fair, 
and having rec^ the shot, made so home a thrust that he run the 
aword ahnost to the hilt thro' the Sheriff : for further particulars, 
I wave untiU meeting. The main cause of my writing is to inform 
you, that severall have designs upon the Sheriffship, upon w^ de- 
signs uncertain, but no doubt they have an eye upon the Chattells 
of the Duellers. I therefore desire you would consider of it, and 
make it your interest to haye some honest man put iu, that will 
neither do you nor the country prejudice by their griping and 

I am just going home, and will add no further but that his 
will and papers are safe. 

I am your humble 

Jam£S Hamilton.

Inscription on the Monument of Ladt Anke Joceltn, in the 

Church at Dundalk. 

This Tablet was erected to the memory of 
Lady Anne Jocelyn, 
By her attached brother. 
She died in the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, 

October ISth, 1822, at the age of 24 years, 
And her remains lie buried in the family vault 

Near this spot. 
Blame not the Monumental stone we raise, 
'Tis to the Saviour's, not the smner*s, praise; 
Sin was the whole she could call her own, 
Her good was all derived from Him alone. 
To sin her conflict, pains, and griefs, she owed, 
Her conquering Faith and Patience He bestowed. 
Reader I mayest thou obtain like precious Faith, 
To smile in anguish, and rejoice in death.
