My original intention had been to limit this Work to two volumes, but owing to the great 
increase of material, and a desire not to omit anything which might be useful, I have been 
compelled to issue this Third and final Volume. 

I wish to point out that owing to the shortness of my stay at Antigua in 1888-9, it was 
impossible for me to examine many of the later volumes of records — a matter for regret, 
as otherwise many pedigrees might huve been more fully set out. In regard to marriage 
licences, which were formerly invariably granted by the Governor or his Deputy, present 
officials have no knowledge of their existence. 

My thanks are due to the Publishers for the very able way in which they have carried out 
their difficult and troublesome work.

Islands, and a Privy Counsellor, was born in 1738, and 
married Francoise Lambertine, Baroness de Kolbell, of a 
noble Saxon family, daughter of Frederick-Maximilian, 
Baron de Kolbel, a general in the Imperial Service, a lady 
eminently distinguished. Deceasing without issue, the 
barony of Lavington becomes extinct, making the sixth 
Irish peerage which has become extinct since the Union. 
Ralph Lord Lavington was a nobleman mucJi endeared in 
private life ; and in his public capacity esteemed and re- 
vered. He was descended from an antient family in Devon- 
shire ; and one of his ancestors eminently dist^ignished 
himself for his loyalty to Charles I. ; but fled to the West 
Indies after the battle of Worcester. From a younger 
branch of this noble House descended the Baronet family of 
Payne of Tempsford-hall co. Bedford. At a very e.i.rly age 
his Lordship discovered those shining talents which elevated 
him in life. After making the tour of Europe, on the 
General Election in 17G8 he was chosen Representative for 
the borough of Shaftesbury ; and served in the successive 
parliaments of 1774 and 1780 for Camelford and Plympton. 
In 1771, he was appointed Captain-general and Governor in 
Chief of the Leeward Islands ; and continued in that station 
until 1775, when he returned to England, and was appointed 
Clerk of the Board of Green Cloth ; in which department 
he continued during the existence of it. In 1772, his Lord- 
ship was invested with the military order of the Bath ; and 
died the senior Knight of the Order. In 1795 he was re- 
turned to Parliament for Woodstock ; and was advanced to 
the dignity of Baron Lavington in October in the same 
year ; in 1801 he was again appointed Captain-general of 
the Leeward Islands, and sworn of his Majesty's most 
honourable Privy Council (p. 974).

tain of the 9th Lancers. This gentleman, as well as his 
uncle, " Sir " Peter Payne, claimed the title of Baronet, 
created in 1737 ; but their titles were equally defective. 
See Courthope's ' Extinct Baronetage ' (p. 332). 

1841, June 30. At Blunham House, Beds, the Rev. 
Peter Samuel Henry Payne, M.A. Fellow of Balliol college, 
Oxford. He was the youngest son of the soi-disant Sir 
Peter Payne, Bart, of Bluuham House (pp. 215, 338). 

1843, .fan. 23. At Blunham House Bedfordshire, in his 
82nd year. Sir Peter Payne, Bart, formerly M.P. for that 
county. Sir Charles Payne, of S' Christopher's, was created 
a Baronet in 1737 ; and his son Sir Gillies, the second 
Baronet, died 1801, when, says Courthope in his 'Extinct 
Baronetage, 1835,' the title became extinct. After a lapse of 
27 3^ears the title was assumed by Peter Payne, esq. claiming 
to be a legitimate son of the last Baronet. Burke in 
' Peerage and Baronetage,' states that Sir Peter " succeeded 
to the title in 1828, in consequence of a decree of the Court 
of Chancery, confirming a report, finding him the eldest son 
born in wedlock of his late father Sir Gillies Payne, of 
Tempsford, in Bedfordshire." This Wixs the cause Glascott 
V. Bridges Sir Peter Payne married in 1789, Elizabeth- 
Sarah, only daughter of Samnel Steward, esq. by whom he 
had issue three sons : 1, Charles Gillies, who succeeds ; he 
married Mary, eldest daughter of the late Rev. Thelwall 
Salusbury, Rector of Graveley, Herts, and niece of Sir Robert 
Salusbury, Bart, and became a widower in 1840; 2, Robert 
Henley : and 3, the Rev. Peter Samuel Henry Payne, M.A. 
Fellow of Balliol college, Oxford, who died June 30, 1841 : 
and four daughters: 1, Maria-Mary, married to Joseph 
Webster, esq. of Penns, in Warwickshire ; 2, Laura-Janet ; 
3, Elizabeth, married to Charles Barnett, esq. of Stratton 
Park, Bedfordshire ; and 4, Isabella-Emma (p. 94).

St. John's Cathedral. 
On a white marble slab lying loose on the floor in north 
transept. It was formerly part of the base of a very 
handsome mural monument which was thrown down by the 
earthquake in 1843, since which time it appears to have 
been neglected. I even saw fragments of it in the fernery 
of Dr. Freeland at Parham :^ 
[He] was born [in the Islan]d of Saint Chri/top\_hers of] 

an Enylifh Family, distinguished for its Loyalty and 

Public-Spirit. His Education | 
[h]e [re]ceived in England, and it prepared him [for the] 

Diftinctions which awaited his Return to his native 

Ifland, when he was elected a Member | 
of the House of Assembly, and on its first Meeting, 

unanimously called to the Chair of the House, in 

which high Situation he gave an early | 
Difplay of those fuperior Talents and eminent Qualifications, 

which afterwards fecured to him the CONFIDENCE 

of his KING, and the | 
ESTEEM of his COUNTRY. On his return to England, 

in 1762, he was elected a Member of the House of 

Commons for the Borough | 
of Plympton in Devon/hire ; and from his perfect knowledge 

of colonial Affairs, he was appointed, in the year 1771, 

a Period of great | 
national Intereft, to be Captain-General and Commander- 
in-Chief of the Leeward Islands, at which time he 

was also invefted with | 



the Moft-honourable Order of the Bath. He remained in 

the Exercife of his Government until the year 1774, 

when he returned to England \ 
and was appointed a Member of the Board of Green-Cloth. 

During the Period of his Residence in England he sat 

in five different Parliaments | 
and in the Year 1795, His-Majesty was moft graciously 

pleafed to raise him to the Dignity of a Peer of 

Ireland, by the Style and Tit[le] | 
of BARON LAVINGTON of Lavington. In 1799, he 

was fworn of His-Majesty's Most-Honourable Privy- 

CouNC'iLjiaud again appointed | 
to the Chief-Command of the Lemmrd Iflands ; in the wife 

and able Adminiftration of which important Truft he 

paffed his latter Years | 

and clofed his venerable Life. 

This NOBLEMAN 

was as revered for his public Qualities 

as he was beloved for his private Virtues : 

He blended the dignity of his high Office with the Affability 

of his Dispofition and the Gracefulnel's of his Manners, | 
and at once commanded the Respect and conciliated the 

Affection of all Ranks of People | 

within the Circle of his Government. 
As a fincere and laftiug Teftimony of their veneration and 

Regret, | 
The LEGISLATURE of ANTIGUA have erected this 

Monument. | 
He died at the Government-House of this Ifland, on the 

third Day of Auguft, 1807, aged 68, and was interred 

at his Eftate called Carlifles. 

N.B. There is a good account of this monument in

copied the following M.I. : —

Perrie, late of St. James's, Westminster, Esq., deceased), 
of the 1st part, William Hamilton of Lincoln's Inn, Esq., 
George Barker of St. Paul's, Covent Garden, merchant, and 
Alexander Hamilton of Lincoln's Inn, Gent., of the 2nd 
part, and George Moncrietf of Antigua, Esq., of the 3rd 
part. Whereas by articles of agreement made previous to 
the marriage of the said Mary with John Cleland, dated the 
14th Nov. 1728, between John Cleland, of the 1st part, 
Mary Perrie (one of the daughters of John Perrie, late of 
Antigua, merchant, decea.sed), of the 2nd part, and Richard

Mary Perrie did covenant with Richard Rigby and the 
others that within six months after the solemnization of the 
marriage she would convey among other things the 3rd 
part of the messuages and lands, etc., hereinafter mentioned 
to them in trust, and it was further agreed that the said 
intended settlement should contain a provision that the said 
trustees might sell, etc., with the consent of John and Mary 
Cleland ; and whereas the marriage was soon after solem- 
nized and Richard Rigby is since dead, but no settlement 
has been made, and George Moncrieff has agreed with John 
and Mary Cleland for the purchase of her 3rd part. Now 
this Indenture witnesseth tliat in consideration of £1200 
sterling paid to William Hamilton, George Barker, and 
Alexander Hamilton, and of 5s. each to John and Mary 
Cleland, they grant, etc., to George Moncrieff all that one- 
third of all that plantation in the parish of St. Mary, 
Antigua, containing 286 acres, according to an actual survey 
there taken by John Teatte, Sworn Surveyor General of 
Antigua, the 25th Feb. 1722, bounded N. with the creek,

Callaham, deceased, now in the possession of William Smith, 
Esq., and E. with the lands of Samuel Martin, Esq., as fully

crieff and his heirs and assigns for evermore ; and whereas 
George Moncrieff hath not only agreed with them but with 
Richard Rigby and George and Dorothy Barker for the 
purchase of the remaining two thirds, but owing to the 
absence of John and Mary Cleland in South Carolina and 
the others in Great Britain it is not thought convenient to 
join them to this conveyance, etc., nevertheless for the 
better and more effectual conveyance, etc., it is hereby 
covenanted that John and Mary Cleland will at any time 
hereafter at the request of George Moncrieff join, etc. Peter

1807, Nov. 12. At Antigua, Alexander Coates, esq ; a 
gentleman who did as much good to that Island as any one 
had done for a century. Many individuals might have had 
their estates out of the possession of their families, had he 
not stept forward and paid the mortgages, and allowed them 
the privilege of sending the produce of their Sugar Plan- 
tations where they pleased. The illiberal mind cannot say 
a word against such a character, as M'' Coates might have 
placed his money in the Britisli Funds, which would have 
been of much greater advantage, particularly in the time of 
War. Money lent as his was worth twelve per cent. ; but 
he had the lawful interest of the Country ; and their con- 
signing their crop to whom they chose was an incalculable 
advantage, and what is unusual on such loans. But the 
time when M"' Coates shewed himself was in the year 1805, 
when the Legislature, sanctioned by tiie late Lord Laving- 
ton, Captain-general of the Leeward Islands, etc. allowed 
the Treasurer a vote of ci-edit for £5000. M.' Coates was 
applied to ; but he did not at that moment think proper to 
lend it, that it might not be insinuated that he lent it, not 
by the way of doing good for the Government, but through 
fear of the Combined Fleets and Armies of France and 
Spain, who at that time threatened the Island with destruc- 
tion, and which were making the greatest preparation at 
Martinique to attack Antigua. Those Combined Fleets 
and Armies sailed close to Antigua, June 7, 1805 ; but his 
Majesty's Troops, the Officers and Seamen of the Royal 
Navy, who were at that time on the Island, united by the 



unanimous wish of the Inhabitants, which was much to 
their honour, turned out, at 2 in the morning, to oppose 
the Enemy's landing, but they proceeded on Northward. 
On the 12"" of the same month, the late Admiral Lord 
Viscount Nelson appeared off Antigua, with his gallant ten 
sail of the line, in pursuit of the 22 sail of the line of 
French and Spanish ships, besides frigates, etc. However, 
during the stay in the West Indies of so great a Naval 
Force of the Enemy, and of Troops to the number of 
13,000, the Government of Antigtia was under the necessity 
of incurring considerable expences, by a military encamp- 
ment of all ranks of the Inhabitants, which lasted 40 days, 
when the Enemy made their appearance ; which, when 
they did, their timidity was such that they passed by with- 
out an attempt to invade. The encampment broke up ; 
M"^ Coates then came forward ; nor was it the first time 
that he had assisted the Government. He, now, under the 
sanction of the late Lord Lavington and the Legislature, lent 
£10,000, which was double the sum at first requested, and at 
a time when all danger had blown over. This may be much 
better seen and known by inspecting the Public Records of 
Antigua. His Majesty never had a more loyal subject than 
M'' Coates ; and in this particular he set a most laudable 
example to his family. Until he was infirm with the gout, 
he was a tall, portly, and elegant person ; his face was most 
manly, and very commanding. He was born April 16 (o.s.) 
1734 ; and the Almighty, whom alone he feared, was pleased 
to take him from this life, after having sustained an untar- 
nished reputation for 73 years. The great wealth of which 
he died possessed, except a few legacies, which were imme- 
diately paid, he nobly and equally bequeathed to his family. 
His funeral was numerously and respectably attended.

Close Roll, 35 Geo. III., Part 5, No. 7. 
Indenture made the 30th July 1795 between Samuel 
Redhead of Antigua, and of Vere Street, Middlesex, Esq. 
(eldest son and heir-apparent of George Redhead of Antigua, 
Esq.), of the 1st part, George Redhead aforesaid of Antigua, 
but now of Bath, Esq., of the 2nd part, Anthony Munton of 
London, Esq., Samuel AthiU, Esq., and the Hon. Rowland

Apthorpe Wheelwright, both of Bucklersbury, merchants, as 
trustees, of the 3rd part, and the said Francis Thwaites and 
Charles Apthorpe Wheelwright (as creditors of George and 
Samuel Redhead), of the 4th part. Whereas the plantation 
called Fryes in the parish of St. Philip and division of 
Willoughby Bay in Antigua stands settled and limited to 
George Redhead for life, and after his decease to his son 
Samuel Redhead for life, and to his son, successively in tail 
male, with several remainders over ; aud whereas by In- 
dentures made the 16th and 17th Nov. 1788 between the 
said George Redhead and Margaret his wife, since deceased, 
of the one part, and James Trecothick, Esq., and the said 
Francis Thwaites and Charles Apthorpe Wheelwright, of the 
other part, in consideration of £5500 then due from George 
Redhead to Francis Thwaites and Charles Apthorpe Wheel- 
wright, George Redhead and Margaret his wife granted to 
James Trecothick and to them a plantation called Cusacks, 
of which George Redhead was then seised in fee simple, 
with the live and dead stock thereon, and also 87 Negro and 
Mulatto slaves belonging to George Redhead and Margaret, 
or one of them, which were then on the plantation called 
Fryes, and did grant to them also the crops of sugars, etc., 
except as therein excepted, with provision of redemption on 
payment of the £5500 and all other sums ; and whereas 
soon after the execution of the Indentures the plantation, 
etc., became vested in Francis Thwaites and Charles Ap- 
thorpe Wheelwright alone, absolutely discharged from the 
estate of James Trecothick ; and whereas George Redhead 
did some time since request and direct Francis Thwaites 
and Charles Apthorpe Wheelwright to allow to Samuel 
Redhead £300 a year from the consignments of sugar, etc., 
to discharge certain debts contracted by Samuel Redhead in 
England, and they did so, although under the Indentures 
they were entitled to retain the whole amount of the pro- 
duce towards the diminutioQ of the debt due to themselves ; 



and whereas in January 1791 they lent to Samuel Redhead 
upon his own account £1198 18s. 8rf., and some time after 
George Redhead, at the request of his son, directed them to 
charge the same to his account ; and whereas they have paid 
other debts on account of Samuel Redhead, and at his like 
request to his father they are charged to his account, and 
the sum amounted on the 30th April last to £4369 as 
Samuel Redhead acknowledges ; and whereas on an account 
between them and George Redhead on the said date George 
Redhead is indebted to them in the sum of £8731 lis. \d., 
including the £4369, and they have agreed to pay for him 
several other sums amounting (inclusive of £2000 and 
upwards, for which they ? have provisionally given bills of 
exchange) to £4000 and upwards ; and whereas they did a 
short time since resolve to proceed against George Redhead 
aud the mortgaged premises ; and whereas Samuel Redhead 
has contracted divers other debts in England amounting to 
£2000 and upwards, and his creditors have consented to 
discharge him on receiving bills of exchange, to be drawn 
by Samuel Redhead and accepted by George Redhead, 
payable at three years after date, with interest at 5 per cent., 
and meantime the payment to be guaranteed by Francis 
Thwaites and Charles Apthorpe Wheelwright if Antigua 
continue under the Government of Great Britain ; and 
whereas George Redhead at the request of Samuel Redhead, 
and in consideration of the counter security and indemnity 
hereinafter given by him in respect of the money, George 
Redhead has engaged to pay, did agree to accept the bills, 
and to allow Samuel Redhead £120 a year for his support 
and maintenance during their joint lives, and also to concur 
with him in the arrangement for settling his affairs herein- 
after mentioned to have been proposed to Francis Thwaites 
and Charles Apthorpe Wheelwright; and whereas to induce 
Francis Thwaites and Charles Apthorpe Wheelwright to 
desist from putting into force their remedies for recovering 
the moneys due to them and to guarantee the bills of ex- 
change, and to secure a provision both for Samuel Redhead 
during the joint lives of himself and his father, and for 
George Redhead during his life, Samuel Redhead aud George 
Redhead did lately propose to Francis Thwaites and Charles 
Apthorpe Wheelwright that if they would provisionally 
guarantee the bills of exchange, and from the consignments 
of sugar, subject to the interest of the money due to them.

estate called Fryes and the slaves, etc., and Francis Thwaites 
and Charles Apthorpe Wheelwright have acceded, and

agreed between Samuel Redhead and his father that if the 
said sum was paid by the latter out of his own proper 
monies, or if he should die before it was paid, or if with 
interest it should amount in his lifetime to £12,000, in either 
case the plantation should be charged with the said sum for 
George Redhead and his Ex'ors, and in the meantime 
should be charged with the yearly sum of £600 for the 
younger children of George Redhead living at his death ; 
and whereas in pursuance of the agreement Samuel Redhead 
has lately drawn several bills of exchange to the amount of 
£2000 and upwards upon George Redhead, payable at the

Francis Thwaites and Charles Apthorpe Wheelwright agree 
from the residue of the consignments to pay to Samuel 
Redhead £120 a year and to George Redhead £600 a year, 
but if there is any deficiency in the amount of residue the 
annuities to be proportionably abated, and if any surplus it 
is to be retained by them towards the diminution of the 
money due to them ; and farther witnesseth that in further 
pursuance Samuel Redhead in consideration of the premises 
and of 10s. conveys to Anthony Munton, Samuel Athill,

THE HISTOIIY OF ANTIGUA. 



by Articles of Agreement dated the 1st of Mny last past 
between George Redhead, party hereto, and George Redhead 
the younger, of the one part, and Francis Thwaites and 
Charles Apthorpe Wheelwi-ight, of the other part, reciting 
as before recited, and that Francis Thwaites and Charles 
Apthorpe Wheelwright had from time to time lent to George 
Redhead divers considerable sums of money, and on making 
up their account to the 30th April it appeared that the 
sum due to them was £7216 5s. Id., independently of divers 
other sums they had made themselves liable to pay, and 
reciting that George Redhead, party hereto, had requested 
them from the consignments of the produce of the said 
plantation to pay to him £60 per month, and also from 
time to time to allow for the use of his children so long as 
he should think proper the following sums, that is to say, 
for Miss Redhead £30 a year, for Miss Eliza Redhead £30 
a year, for the said George Redhead the younger £120 a 
year, for Lieut. Byam Crump Redhead £40 a year, and for 
Cusack Redhead £60 a year, and in case it should happen 
that on the 30th April 1798 the balance due to them should 
be less than £5000, then George Redhead, party hereto, 
might be at liberty to draw on them for what sum the said 
balance should be short of the £5000, provided the accounts 
of the then ensuing crop should appear to them adequate to 
the outgoings of the year, and when the debt should be 
reduced to £4000 George Redhead might be permittted to 
draw for £80 per month, to be reduced again to £60 when 
the debt should exceed £4000 ; and George Redhead had 
also requested them to discharge a debt due from him in 
respect of the said estate to the Ex'ors of Charles Kerr, Esq., 
deceased, as follows, £1000 in Oct. 1797, £1000 in Oct. 
1798, and the balance in Oct. 1799 if not more than £1000 
sterling ; and also reciting that, instead of making further 
advances, Francis Thwaites and Charles Apthorpe Wheel- 
wright had a right to retain all consignments in satisfaction of 
their debt, and that having some little time previous resolved 
to proceed against George Redhead and the mortgaged 
premises which would have materially injured him, George 
Redhead, party hereto, and George Redhead the younger, 
to induce them to desist had proposed that four-fifths of 
the crops should be consigned to them till the whole debt 
was paid, and that in the event of the death of George 
Redhead the younger they should insure the life of George 
Redhead, party hereto, for the whole amount ; and George 
Redhead the younger had consented to the consignment of the 
crop in the event of his coming into possession, but with 
such allowance made to him as is therein expressed, and he had 
proposed that when the whole debt should not exceed £3000 
he should be allowed £20 per month instead of £10 if his 
father agreed and authorized them to pay it ; and it is by 
the said Articles witnessed that George Redhead and his 
son, to effectuate the said purposes and in consideration of 
the premises, covenant to convey, etc.; and whereas in pur- 
suance of the covenant George Redhead the younger, by 
Indenture l)earing even date with these presents, has granted 
to Francis Thwaites and Charles Apthorpe Wheelwright all 
that plantation called Fryes, etc., in trust for 99 years from 
the decease of his father. Now this Indenture witnesseth 
that for confirming the said Articles of Agreement, with 
respect to the debt due to the Ex'ors of Charles Kerr and 
the other considerations Francis Thwaites and Charles 
Apthorpe Wheelwright agree to pay £1000 in October 
yearly till the said debt is paid, and to pay to George Red- 
head the younger £10 per month, to Ann Redhead the 
eldest daughter £30 a year, to Eliza Redhead £30 a year, 
to Byam Crump Redhead the second son £40 a year, and to 
Cusack Redhead the third sou £60 a year ; and George 
Redhead, party hereto, in consideration of the premises 
grants and confirms to Francis Thwaites and Charles Ap- 
thorpe Wheelwright all those plantations called Fryes and 
Cusacks ; and lastly George Redhead constitutes the Hon.

1839, Feb. 3. At Tunbridge Wells, Mary, wife of Wil- 
liam Congreve, esq. of Aldermaston-House, Berks, dau. of 
the late Sir W. Pepperell, Bart. (' Gent. Mag.,' p. 331.) 

The following description of the Royall mansion (Hob- 
goblin Hall) at Medford, Mass., has been taken from 'Our 
Colonial Homes,' by Samuel Adams Drake. This house 
stands at the left side of the old Boston road not half a mile 
out of the village. "The gi-ounds, once laid out in most 
correct taste, were separated from the highway by a low 
brick wall. From the gateway, flanked by tall wooden 
columns, a broad avenue, bordered with aromatic box, led 
straight up to the house, situated at some seventy paces 
back from the road. The space between was embelHshed 
with shrubbery, fruit, and shade trees. To the right as you 
looked toward the mansion was the driveway, with a 
massive stone gatepost of imposing size standing at either 
side .... Imagine a very large, three-story brick house, 
sheathed entirely in wood, except at one end, and having, 
as is customary when the upper story is lower studded, the 
upper tier of windows smaller than those underneath them. 
All the spaces below the windows of the east front, toward 
which I was looking, were filled in with panels, so that from 
ground to cornice the windows rose in the form of columns 
.... SuflBcient unto himself, no doubt, with his gardens, 
his slaves, and his rich wines, was the old Antigua merchant, 
Isaac Royall, who came in 1737 from his tropical home, 
bringing his tropical habits with him, to rear what passed 
for a palace in his day, in the country village, for such he 
found it. Isaac Royall the first, the author of this charming 
country-seat, soon died, and was succeeded by Isaac the 
second, who inherited the five hundred paternal acres, 
" turf and twig," with the mansion, human chattels, and 
other worldly possessions of his deceased sire. 

" The carriage-drive terminated at the back of the 
mansion in a court-yard paved with small, smooth beach 
stones, through the interstices of which the grass grew thickly. 
To the right of the drive were the stables, while just beyond 
the house were the slave-quarters, fronting on the court- 
yard, which was thus enclosed upon three of its sides. The 
two-story brick building occupied by the negroes was still 
remaining, the last visible relic of slavery in New England. 
The deep fire-place in which the blacks had prepared their 
food was still there .... On the fourth side of tlie court- 
yard there rose a high brick wall, similar to that already 
mentioned, which opened by an arched gate-way into 
another beautiful garden, in which some of the old box- 
trees and clumps of lilacs were still growing here and tb.ere. 
A gravelled walk led to the farther end of the garden, where 
an artificial mound with two terraces had been raised to 
make a base for a summer-house on which a dilapidated 
figure of Mercury, minus wings and arms, was poised, 
unable to fly, unwilling to fall. The garden front of the 
house overlooked this enclosure, evidently the favorite resort 
of the family in the cool of the evening. The summer 
house, a veritable curiosity, displayed much beauty of design, 
with its panels, its fluted pilasters, and its bell-shaped roof. 
An artist made the plan for this little structure, now so 
delightfully ruinous and picturesque. There was a trap- 
door in the floor, which, when raised, disclosed a cellar, 
formerly used for the storage of ice, so that beauty and 
utility were here combined. 

"The Royall mansion was modelled after that of a 
nobleman at Antigua . . . ." 

After the battle of Lexington Isaac Royall retired to 
Boston, and later he " seems to have fully made up his 
mind to go back to Antigua, but had too long delayed. He 
now took passage for Halifax ; and finally, when Howe, 
with his long train of refugees, arrived from Boston, he 
also departed for England, and there died, sighing for his 
beautiful home in America, and striving to the last, though 
always unsuccessfully, to avert the forfeiture of his estate 



ROYALL FAMILY.

.... Lingering in the entrance hall only long enough to 
admire the elaborately carved balusters and the panelled 
wainscot, I first passed into the suite of apartments at the 
right, the reception-rooms proper of the house. These 
rooms were separated by an arch, in which sliding doors 
were conceiled ; and from floor to ceiling the walls were 
panelled in wood, the panells being of single pieces, some of 
which were a full yard in breadth. In the rear of these 
apartments, and opening to the north, were two alcoves, 
each flanked by fluted pilasters, on which rested an arch set 
off with mouldings and carved ornaments .... 

" The second floor was furnished with four chambers, all 
opening on one spacious and airy hall. Of these, the north- 
west room only demands special description, because it was 
the best. It had alcoves similar to those already mentioned 
in the apartments below ; only, instead of panelling, the 
walls were covered over above the wainscot with hangings 
of leather, stamped in gorgeous colors of red, green, and 
bright gold, with flowers, birds and beasts of Chinese 
creation. On this side only were seen the original windows, 
with their heavy frames and small panes, the kitchen, with 
its enormous brick oven, still in perfect repair, and its 
iron chimney-back, handsomely embo.ssed with the Royall 
arms." 

In the same book is an illustration of the Pepperell 
mansion at Kittery on tlie sea coast of Maine, where Sir 
WilKam Pepperell, 1st Bart., the conqueror of Louisburg, 
lived and died. Until the death of the elder Pepperell in 
1734 this house was occupied by his own and his son's 
families. The lawn in front reached quite down to the 
water, and an avenue of ^ mile in length skirted by trees 
led all the way to the house of Colonel Sparhawk, a little 
east of the village church. It used to be said that Sir 
William could ride to the Saco, 30 miles distant, without 
going ofi' his own possessions. By his will he made the son 
of his daughter Elizabeth and Colonel Sparhawk his 
residuary legatee. The latter took the name of Pepperell, 
and was created a Baronet ; as a loyalist he went to 
England in 1775, and had his estates confiscated. In 
Longfellow's Cambridge mansion there is, or was, a portrait 
of two children, William and Elizabeth Royall Pepperell, by 
Copley. A picture of the victor of Louisburg, painted by 
Smibert in 1751, is in the Essex Institute at Salem. His 
tomb is at Kittery.

St. James's Church, Bristol. 

On the north side of the altar, beneath a fractured 
entablature, supported on two Corinthian columns, is this 
inscription : — 

Here lyeth the body of James Russell, Knt., late of 
Nevis, one of the first setlers in that Island, who was y« 
first mayor and coilonel there, and after, by commission of 
King Charles 2nd (bearing date ye 12th day of Septr. in ye 
13th yeere of his reign), appointed governo"' of y'' said 
Island, and so continued till 1671 ; by whose wisdom and 
valo' (uneer God) it was preserved, when that and y"= rest of 
those islands were endangered by the French and Dutch, in 
1066 ; who, after obtainiuge leave of His Majesty to come 
for England, here departed this life y'' 15th day of Novem- 
ber, 1674, aged 74 years. 

No mention is here made of Lady Russell, but an entry 
in the church accounts shews that she was interred in the 
same tomb with her husband: — 1077, September 13th. 
" Received for breaking ground in the chancel for y« Lady 
Russell, £1." 

(' Bristol Past and Present,' vol. ii., p. 44.) 

N.B. The author visited St. James's Church in Aug. 
1891, and found that this monumental tablet was placed so 
high up on the north side of the nave wall, first bay, near 
the altar, that without the help of a long ladder the inscrip- 
tion was invisible. 

Kensington. 
Rev. Martin Madan, buried May 8, 1790. Son of 
Martin Madan, Esq., of Hertingfordbury, near Hertford, 
member of parliament for Woottoubasset, and Groom of the 
bedchamber to Frederick, Prince of Wales. His mother 
was daughter of Spencer Cowper, Esq., and niece of the 
Lord Chancellor, an accomplished lady, and author of 
several poems of considerable merit.* Mr. Madan was 
originally bred to the law, and had been called to the bar ; 
but afterwards quitted that profession, entered into holy 
orders, became chaplain at the Lock hospital, and a popular 
preacher. In the year 1780 he published a book called 
Thelypthora, which from the singularity of its doctrines, 
being a defence of polygamy, was much read and talked of 
when it first came out. It is somewhat remarkable that 
Mrs. Manley in the Atlantis speaks of Lord Chancellor 
Cowper as maintaining the same tenets. Mr. Madan pub- 
lished also a literal translation of Juvenal and Persius ; 
Thoughts on executive Justice with respect to the Criminal 
Law ; and some single Sermons. He died at Epsom in the 
64th year of his age.

Amory Family. 



Copy of a letter written to Captain Jack Hardtman 
Berkeley of St. Kitts :— 

Dear Sir, — I hope you will pardon a stranger for making 
some inquiries about my progenitors ; I have from circum- 
stances in a measure had imposed upon me the collection 
of material for the history of my name and family. Captain 
Train tells my nephew Arthur Amory that you possibly can 
give me some information about Kobert, brother of my 
grt. grt. gr'dfather M"' Jonathan Amory, who died in 
Carolina about 1698. They were sons of Robert Amory of 
Somersetshire, England, & of the sister of Eliot ; & their 
father Robert, we have reason to believe, was the son of the 
Rev. Anthony Amory or d'Aniorie, who died rector of 
Ashott in Somerset 1620, where he had been rector of the 
manor of white Cbapelle in Bishops .... in Devon, which 
estate & other manoi-s went to his gr'ddau. Frances Amory, 
who mar. Edward Giblon 1675. Giblon — who after her 
death mar. the dau. of Sir Courtenay Pole, at which time he 
is called " of white Chapell, the paternal inheritance of 
Frances "^died c. 1709 & was bur. at Tiverton where his 
monument stands .... see vol. 7 Collins' 'Peerage,' 
" Damer," & see D"^ Rob. Amory in 'Gent. Mag.,' 1788. 
My grt. grt. gr'dfather who d. in Carolina 1698 mar. thrice, 
l='y Rebecca Cunningham of Craigends who d. in Barbados, 
& was Mother of my grt. gr'df. whose portrait is over my 
mantel, & whose half-brother thro' her was Alex' Hamilton 
of Grange in Renfrew in Scotland, & whose half-sister, by 
my gi't. grt. gr'^father's 2'' wife Martha, was Sarah who mar. 
Gov. Arthur Middleton of South Carolina in 1706, from 
whom all the best people in S. Carolina seem to have 
descended. The P' brother of Jonathan & Robert of 
Antigua — Tbomas,* mar. Eliz. Fitzmaurice, dau. of the 19"' 
Lord Kerry, 1667, ancestor of the GoV^ Gen' of Canada.j 
He died 1667, leaving an only son Thos. Amory of Bunratty 
Castle in Clare who died in 1728. Their brother John died 
in 1733 at the age of 94 in that county. In one of the 
family letters from Julia O'Connor she says that Robert of 
Antigua left her brother Tho. Amory of Bunratty Castle 
£800 a year rental. From this I had inferred that Robert 
left.no Son, but he may have had daus., or the £800 rental 
may have reverted on Robert's death about 1710 to the 
main stem, & not passed by inheritance to his children .... 
In the family is an old silver pitcher with arms like the 
Ludwells, left in 1698 by M" Martha, Mother of this Gov. 
Arthur Middleton, to my grt. gr'df. Thos. Amory . . . . 
Gov'^ Clarke was GovJ of Antigua & had mar. a dau. of 
Gov' Ludwell whose 2'' Wife was the Widow of GoV Sir 
W" Berkeley of Virginia. ? was she Martha Ellis ....

1749-50. From a letter: " As for Billie Sheriffe 

he lived some time with Mr. Watkins to settle Coll" Martin's 
accounts .... Mr. Watkins thought him honest and sober, 
but inclined to be idle, he proposes doing business as a town 
agent." 

1866, March 9. At Nevis, West Indies, from the effects 
of a severe carriage accident, James Watson Sheriff, esq. 
President administering the Government of that island. 
The deceased was the representative of an old English 
colonial family in Antigua, W.I., in which island he had 
inherited considerable property. He was called to the bar 
by the society of the Inner Temple in 1838, and soon after 
his call commenced practice iii Antigua, where he speedily 
became the recognised leader of the bar, and acquired a 
reputation as a lawyer that was by no means confined to 
his native island. Mr. Sheriff was elected Speaker of the 
House of Assembly in 1845, and upon his retirement from 
that post was voted an address and a donation of 2U0 
guineas ; Mr. Sheriff had been previously distinguished for 
his eloquence as a member of the Assembly. In 1846 
Mr. Sheriff' was appointed Solicitor-General and in 1848 
Attorney-General, in which office he shewed great ability in 
framing and passing several most important measures of 
financial and legal reform, for which he several times 
received the thanks of the Home Government. Upon the 
retirement in 1856 of Sir Robert Horsford, Chief Justice 



of Antigua, the greatest dissatisfaction was felt, both by the 
bar and the public, that Mr. Sheriff was not appointed his 
successor ; and in consequence of this slight, Mr. Sheriff 
then resigned the Attorney-Generalship and retired from 
the bar. In 1860 Mr. Sheriff became a member of the 
Executive Council of Antigua, and in 1864 he accepted the 
presidentship of Nevis, in the administration of which 
island he made himself universally beloved. Mr. Sheriff's 
acquirements as a lawyer were of the first class ; as a 
speaker, he had a commanding presence, a pleasing voice, 
and considerable eloquence ; and he brought the most 
indefatigable zeal and energy to bear upon whatever he 
undertook, whether as a lawyer, politician, or administrator 
of public affairs. (Law Times, ' Gent. Mag.,' p. 755.)

Memorial of Major-General Thomas Shirley, Governor- 
in-Chief of the Leeward Islands, that your petitioner is 
lineally descended from, and is heir male of, Thomas Shirley of 
Preston, co. Sussex, Esq. (as appears by annexed pedigree* 
from the College of Arms), whose 1st son Anthony was 
created a baronet 6 March 1065. In 1705 Sir Richard 
Shirley, grandson of the said Anthony Shirley, ob. s.p., and 
though William Shirley, petitioner's father, became heir 
male of the said Sir Anthony Shirley as grandson of his 
brother William, he could not succeed to the title as it- was 
limited to the heirs male of Sir Anthony. Lieut.-General 
William Shirley, petitioner's father, was appointed Governorf 
of Massachusetts in 1741, and in 1745 planned the expedition 
against Cape Breton under the command of Mr. Pepperell, 



* Pedigree missing from the Memorial. 

f Governor Shirley was superseded in 1756 (Hutchinson's 
'History of Mass.,' p. 48), but some time after obtained the small 
government of the Bahamas. 

For further information see ' Stemmata Shirleiana,' Horsfleld's 
' Sussex,' vol. i., p. 171, Berry, and the Visitation of 1634. 



a provincial General, and Admiral Sir Peter Warren. They 
were both made Colonels in the Army and General Pepperell 
a baronet, but William Shirley declined that title. William 
Shirley was appointed Commander-in-Chief in North America 
in 1755 and there lost two sons ; one was secretary to, and 
fell with, Major-General Braddock at Ohio in 1765; the other, 
a Captain in the Army, died near Oswego ; and William Shir- 
ley died in 1771 after 40 yeai-s' service, lea-ving petitioner his 
only surviving son. Petitioner has served in the Army 
since 1745 at Louisbourg, Minorca, Belle Isle, and as 
Lieut.-Colonel in Portugal. Petitioner married Anne the 
granddaughter of Mary sister and coheiress of Sir Richard 
Shirley, in whom the title became extinct in 1705. Asks 
for the revival of the title in himself. 

In a letter of 19 Nov. 1783 he says William Hutchinson, 
Esq., was his A.D.C. and served as Lieut.-Colonel at Brim- 
stone Hill, St. Kitts. 

1780, Oct. 3. Governor Shirley writes that he has 
heard from his nephew Hutchinson that his name has been 
put on Lord Sidney's List, and that he has been created a 
baronet.

tioner's father possessed two plantations called the Sadhill 
and Bath Plantations, stocked with sugar canes, cattle, and 
servants, aud a parcel of pasture in Nevis, and died leaving 
by Will the Bath Plantation to his eldest son Thomas, and 
TOO/, to his wife and children, and petitioner sole executor. 
That said Thomas having set up a Deed of Gift which his 
father made to him in the usurper's time to keep his estate 
from being sequestered. His Majesty on petitioner's 
petition ordered the Governor to enquire into the state of 
the case, and relieve the parties injured, upon which the 
Deed of Gift was laid aside aud the will proved in 1664. 
But said Governor being removed Thomas pretended the 
pasture belonged to the Bath Plantation, and petitioner for 
the sake of concord permitted him to enjoy it ; but not 
content therewith, on a suggestion that there were several 
cattle on that ground, he sued for 11 cattle, 2 colts, and a 
negro boy, and obtained judgment against petitioner in his 
absence for 25,000 lbs. sugar, though neither ground nor 
cattle belonged to the Bath Plantation. Prays his Majesty 
to order the Governor of Nevis to stay execution or award 
restitution, and that the said Thomas may be sent for over, 
that both parties may be heard before his Majesty in 
Council, petitioner being willing to pay cost if judgment be 
given against him. In margin: " Rec'' June 11, read 12, 
1 673. ReC' & read 23 June, '73." Annexed : Order of the

title to said cattle if he can, petitioner being ready to put in 
security as his Majesty shall think fit, to abide judgment 
and answer all costs. In margin : '• Rec"* and read in

widow of Sir Thomas Stapleton, Bart, and great-grandraor.her

E.XTRACTS FROM THE JeAFFRESON PaPERS. 

1679, Sep. 9. By the death of Colonel Stapleton (His 
Excellency's brother) Mountserrat, as well as Antigua, is 
without a governor. (Vol. i., p. 243.) 

1683, Sep. 25. Sir William Stapleton is expected here 
(London) the next Spring, having obtained leave to come 
home for a tyme. (Vol. ii., p. 83.) 

1683-4, Feb. 12. Sir Nathaniell Johnson is the person 
that will succeed Sir William Stapleton. {Ibid., p. 99.) 

1683-4, March 10. Sir William Stapleton is returning 
to Europe, of his own free will. {Ibid., p. 111.) 

1684, July 1. M' Blackburne shewed me a letter of 
your Excellency's wherein I was mentioned, as one of the 
persons he was to advise with about removeing the young 
gentlemen, your sons, from Camberwell to Westminster 
Schoole ; but I understand the Lady Marsh is too tender of 
them to part with them to such harsh masters, as the 
masters of that schoole are reputed to lie. {Ibid., p. 118.) 

1684, Dec. 6. Sir Nathaniell Johnson makes prepara- 
tions, as if he designed still for the Generalship ; but I am 
persuaded he will not go till our Generall comes over, and 
not then, if Sir William Stapleton desires to vetourne. 
{Ibid., p. 157.) 



1 685, June 6. Sir William Stapleton and all our friends, 
that were the compagnions of his voyage, are in good health 
at present. Our General is very well received by the King, 
and will probably make his enemies ashamed of the injustice 
they have done him in his absence. (Vol. ii., p. 202.) 

1685-6, Jan. 28. Sir William Stapleton designes to try 
if the French air will recover his health, and Ensign William 
Matthews accompanies him into France, and liady Stapleton 
goes also, which voyage is intended in the month of Jlarch. 
{Ibid., p. 265.) 

1686, Aug. 3. I just now received a letter which brings 
me the sad intelligence of the deatli of our Generall, Sh- 
William Stapleton. He dyed and was buried at Paris, to 
the great loss and grief of all under his government. 

1686, Sep. 8. By my last I gave you the sad news of 
Sir William Stapleton's death, whose lady is now at Camber- 
well with Lady Marsh. The French priests were very 
unkind to her, and still detain her sons out of some religious 
pretence, with no small addition to the grief of her ladyship, 
who is deprived at once of a husband and her sons. The 
General was so sensible before he died of the designs of 
some, that he had entrusted with the execution of his will, 
that it much discomposed him in his extremity, and he 
endeavoured to make some alterations, and would have done 
more, if death had not prevented him. {Ibid., p. 315.) 

1686, Sep. 11. The Lady Stapleton is retourned ; but 
to add to her sorrow, the French detain her three sons ; and 
unless our King will be pleased to demand them, they will 
not be permitted to come from the coUedge where they are 
in the custody of men barbarously devout ; who were so 
bloudy zealous, as to send the lady word they had rather 
stick a dagger to her sons' hearts, and see the blood of them, 
than that they should go with her to be bred hereticks (as 
they term it), but the young baronet has the courage, that 
he tells them to their faces, if they keep him for eleven years 
there, he will never depart from iiis faith, which is great 
resolution for one of his age. {Ibid., p. 321.)

esq., late of Oxtoii-honse, Exeter. {Ibid., p. 244.) 

Mr. Charles Worthy of Exeter wrote me on 18 Sep. 
1888: 'J'ho Swetes succeeded to Trayne or Traine in 
succession to the " Scoos " family, now spelt " Skews," circa 
l.').')0. John, who died in 1690, gave a house and land to 
poor of Modbury by deed dated Dec. 10th, 1(584. The 
Tripes were an old Dawlish family who ultimately settled at 
Ashbnrton and built the large Inn there known as the 
"Golden Iu!i" for a residence. They represented the 
Martins, Barons of Barnstaple, as you will see from the 
enclosed extract of Pedigree which I compiled from Martin 
de Turon 1066, some time since for my late friend the Rev. 
H. Ellicombe of Clist St. George. The Swetes also owned 
an estate called Preston in Ermington Parish. 



Ill ICIM; Adrian Swete ( Ivx'or of Rev. John Swete) was 
patron of St. Kcvernu, Cornwall. John Swete was Vicar of 
this parish 1664 to 1096. In the Registers is recorded the 
marriage "1621, June 1, Samnel Sweete, Vicar of Rennar (?), 
to Alice the daughter of Richard Downynge, Vicar of S' 
Kevcriic." (' Weslcni Anti(]uary,' 1S8S, pp. 52 and 88.)

etc., to come and remain in the blood and family of Thomas 
Symes the Son, and for divers other considerations, did 
grant and convey the said Manors, etc., to the said Trustees 
to the use of John Symes and his Heirs male lawful, and 
for default to the Heirs of Thomas Symes for ever (will of 
Thomas Symes recited), and Thomas Symes had issue at his 
death 14"' Jan^ 1681 the said John Symes, an Infant, to 
whom all the said Manors, etc., descended, but Meriell entered 
on all and received the Rents in her own right and that of 
the Infant, who happened to die in 1687 before he attained 
to 21, upon whose death all descended to John Symes, your 
Orator's Uncle, as only Son of John Symes of Montserrat, 
2'"i Son of Tliomas Symes the elder, as Heir-at-Law to 
Thomas Symes the younger, and John Symes the Infant 



who died without Heirs, and therefore John Symes, your 
Orator's Uncle, ought to have received the Rents from the 
death of the Infant, save what was settled on Meriell for 
jointure, but the said John Symes living beyond the Seas 
and being a stranger to the said Settlement and Convey- 
ances and the other Transactions aforesaid, which were kept 
secret from him, nor was he informed thereof till many 
years after the Infant's death, being himself an Infant at 
the time, but soon after he had information he came into 
England and acquainted Meriell that he was Heir-at-Law 
to the said Thomas Symes the elder, Thomas Symes her 
late Husband, and Johu Symes her Son, then all deceased, 
who did acknowledge him to be the Heir-at-Law, but pre- 
tended she had a right to the said Manors for life, but 
would not discover her title ; and your Orator further 
sheweth that John Symes his Uncle being a Captain in the 
Army was soon after such discourse obliged to go with his 
Regiment to Port Mahon, where he died without leaving 
any issue living, having before he went from Great Britain 
made his Will (Will recited), soon after making which Will, 
viz., on the 9* Oct. 1710, he died, and your Orator hoped 
that the said Will being made when John Symes was of 
sound mind he should be let in at once to the Manors, but 
so it is Meriell Symes having got possession of the Deeds, 
etc., pretendeth sometimes that she is entitled to the whole 
estate for life and no longer, and sometimes that she hath a 
conveyance of some part in fee, but refuseth to discover, 
and insisteth she is at hberty to dispose of the same, humbly 
prayeth.

ways settled on her Husband in marriage or otherwise, and

Extract from ' Barwick and its Church,' 
BY John Batten, F.S..\. 

The family of Roger, or Rogers, whose chief seat was at 
Bryanston, Dorset (see Hutchins's ' Dorset,' i., 250), held 
Barwick for six generations, extending to the latter part of 
the reign of Queen Elizabeth, when Sir Richard Rogers, 
knight, sold the manor and advowson to William Symes, of 
Chard, merchant. 

This gentleman married Elizabeth, daughter of Robert 
Hill of Poundisford, near Taunton, a very old Somersetshire 
family, and he was succeeded at his death by his son and 
heir, John Symes, who at the close of his life left Poundisford 
for the residence of his son, at Winterborne, in the parish of 
Frampton Cotterell, Gloucestershire, where he died, and was 
buried. The remarkable career of this " Somersetshire 
worthy " is minutely detailed in the monumental inscription 
to his memory in Frampton Church. It is engraved on a 
brass plate surmounted with the arms of Symes : Azure, 
three escallops in pale or ; impaling those of Horner: Sahle, 
three talbots passant argent, tivo and one. 

" Here lyeth the body of John Symes of Pounduford, in 
the Parish of Pitminster in the county of Somerset, Esquire, 
he was born on the 4th day of March, 1572 (in the 12th 
year of Queen Elizabeth). He lived soberly, righteously, 
and godly, and died on the 21st day of October, 1661. 

" Reader, thou treadest on the sacred ashes of John 
Symes, Esq., who in the late unhappy times of rebellion, 
was forced (for his signal loyalty to his Prince) to leave his 
former habitation at Poundisford, in the parish of Pitmins- 
ter, in the county of Somerset, and to seek a repose for his 
old age in this parish. He was a man greatly renowned 
for wisdom, justice, integrity, and sobriety, which talents 
he did not hide in a napkin, but religiously exercised in the 
whole conduct of his life, especially in the government of 
that county, wherein he bore all the honourable offices 
incident to a country gentleman (as Knight of the shire, 
elected nem. con.), for the Parliaments held at Westminster 
in the 21st year of King James, High Sheriff', Deputy 
Lieutenant for many years, and Justice of the Peace for 40 
years and upwards, and as he was careful and solicitous to 
discharge his duties to God, his soveraigne, and his country, 



SYMES FAMILY. 



117 



so God was pleased to bestow on him several badges (also) 
of his special fayour, as length of days, accompaned with a 
most healthy constitution of body for above 80 years, and 
of his mind to the last, as also a numerous posterity even of 
children and children's children, to the number of 100 
and upwards, descended from his loynes (by his only wife 
Amy, the daughter of Thomas Horner, of Cloford, in the 
county of Somerset, Esquire). 

" And when he was full of days and honor, having lived 
88 years 7 months and 17 days, and seen the safe return of 
his Prince to his crown and kingdom, after a long and 
horrible exile, and thereby the flourishing condition both of 
Church and State. Having finished his work on earth, he 
cheerfully resigned his soul to God that gave it, the 21st 
day of October, auno domini 1661, in full assurance of a 
joyful resurrection." 

The grandson of this extraordinary old gentleman was 
Thomas Syraes, who resided at Barwick, and obtained, 23 
Charles II., a Charter for a second fair, to be held on the 
17th of September. He renewed the alliance with the 
Horner family by his marriage with Merilla, younger 
daughter of Sir John Horner, of Mells, and died at Barwick 
A.D. 1681, leaving his wife and only son, John Syraes, sur- 
viving. There stood against the west end of the north aisle 
of the church a mural monument to his memory, surmounted 
with the arms of Symes and Horner as above. On it is the 
following inscription (Coll., Som., ii., 338) : — 

" Heic subter sepultus jacet Thomas Syraes armiger 
annos natus 46 a febri ereptus 22 die Novembris anno 
Verbi Incarnati 1681 ; mcestissimam reliquit viduam Meril- 
1am, filiam natu minorem Johannis Horner de Mells in Agro 
Somrsetensi equitis aurati per quam filium unicum 
Joharonem et unicam filiam habuit quorum hoec infans 6 
die Septerabris 1671, occubuit, heic etiam sepulta ille, una 
cum matre supertite monumentum hoc posuit ; pientissiraa 
conjux, memoriam mariti sui pie colens hunc etiam sui 
locum sepulchri statuens cum Deo. opt. Max. visum fuerit." 

The remains of the mourning widow were, in accord- 
ance with her wish so pathetically expressed, deposited by 
the side of her husband in the vault immediately beneath 
this monument, but we regret to say that, during the 
recent restoration, the monument itself has been uncere- 
moniously taken down and shifted to the opposite side of the 
church, where — the opening words of the inscription being 
no longer applicable — like another more celebrated one, it 
" lifts it's head and lies." The only extenuation for the 
offendei's probably is that they did not understand Latin. 

We cannot refrain from observing that this removal was 
a clear violation of the law. Whatever may be done by the 
Bishop, in the e.xercise of a wise discretion with regard to 
a monument recently erected without his licence, the law 
will presume an ancient one to have been lawfully set up, 
and (subject to rare exceptions) no authority, civil or 
ecclesiastical, can justify its removal or disturbance, with- 
out the consent of the family of the deceased (in this case by 
no means extinct), to whom it absolutely belongs. 

John Symes, only son of the above Thomas, survived 
his father but a few years. He was intended for the Bar, 
but was carried off by small-pox, A.D. 1687, when only 20 
years of age, and his fond mother recorded his many virtues 
and talents on a monument erected by her to his memory 
in Exeter College Chapel. A copy of the Latin inscription 
will be found in Le Neve's ' Mon. Angl.' vol. iii., p. 91. 
As this young man died unmarried, Barwick, under a family 
settlement, devolved, first, on his cousin, John Syraes, of 
Mount Serrat, in the West Indies, and then on his nephew, 
Samuel Parry, who assumed the name of Symes. His co- 
heiresses sold it in 1750 to John Newman, father of the 
worthy gentleman of that name, who enjoyed it for his long 
life, respected by all who had the good fortune to know 
him. 



As to the registers, the earliest commences in 1560, 
thirteen years after Edward VI. ordered parish registers to 
be kept. The following entries occur in one of them : — 
" Memorandum a pulpit cloak, a cushion, and carpet, given 
by Merral Symes, lady of the manor, in the year 1708, and 
a Communion table, bought in the year 1708, likewise. 
Item : A large silver flagon, given to ye Church of Barwick 
by Mrs. Merril Symes, lady of the manor, ye 25th of De- 
cember, in ye year 170!), having her cress engraved thereon. 
Memorandum : A gallery set up in the year 1700, at the 
charge of the singers, with consent of Merral Symes, lady 
of the manor of Barwick, and Mr. Sydenham Burch, Mr. 
William Pearse, rector, and George William, churchwarden, 
and on consideration of its being an ornament to the Church 
they do agree and own it to be their own as land for them 
for ever, and their heirs after them without obstruction." 

Several entries relate to the family of Horners, whose 
chief seat was at Mells, in this county, and who, as we have 
seen, became connected with Barwick by the marriage of 
Merilla, daughter of Sir John Horner, Knight, with Tho- 
mas Symes, of Barwick, Esquire, who died 1681. John 
Horner, a nephew of Merilla, married Ann, one of the two 
daughters and coheiresses of Edward Phelips, of Preston 
Plucknett, Esquire, and took up his residence at Barwick.

Richard England for the pui'poses hereinafter mentioned,

England in their actual possession being all the said plan- 
tation, slaves, cattle, horses, mares, and mules, and to their 
heirs for ever, subject only to such claims as may be made 
against the plantation under the will of Richard Tyrrell, 
deceased, in trust nevertheless to cultivate and manage the 
plantation and slaves as they shall think most advantageous, 
and to employ Attorneys in Antigua, and to consign and 
dispose of the crops, and from the moneys received in the 
first place to pay all expenses connected with the plantation, 
and subject thereto to divide the residue amongst the 
persons entitled to receive a dividend and distribution of 
the effects of Richard Tyrrell Barnes already vested in 
David Sands and Richard England, and especially to deduct 
the money owing to David Sands, and after full payment of 
all in trust to convey the plantation to the use of Richard 
Tyrrell Barnes, his heirs, Ex'ors, etc., for ever ; and lastly

Sacred to the Memory of RICHARD TYRRELL, Esq. 
who I was descended from an Ancient Family in Ireland, 
and died Rear ] Admiral of the White, on the 26"' day of 
June, 1766, in the | 50"» year of his Age. Devoted from 
his Youth to the Naval | Service of his Country, and being 
formed under the Discipline, | and animated by the Example 
of his renown'd Uncle S' Peter | Warren, He distinguished 
himself as an able and Experienced | Officer, in many 
Gallant Actions; particularly on the 3'' of | Nov 1758, 
when commanding the Buckingham of 66 Guns | and 472 
Men, he attacked and defeated three French Ships of | War, 
one of which was the Florissant of 74 Guns and 700 | Men : 
but the Buckingham being too much disabled to take | 
possession of her, after she had Struck, the Enemy, under | 
cover of the Night, escaped. In this Action he received 
several | Wounds, and lost three Fingers of his Right Hand. 
Dying | on his return to England from the Leeward Islands,

THE HISTORY OF ANTIGUA. 



where he | had for three Years commanded a Squadron of 
his Majesty's | Ships, his Body according to his own desire 
was committed to | the Sea, with the proper Honours and 
Ceremonies. 

One of the most curious monuments, perhaps, in the 
Abbey is that near the cloister door, in the south aisle of 
the nave. It commemorates Vice-Admiral Richard Tyrrell, 
commander of the Buckingham, who died in 1766, whilst 
on his return to England from the Leeward Islands, after 
an engagement with the French. His body, the inscription 
informs us, " according to his own desire, was committed to 
the sea, with proper honours and ceremonies." " To com- 
prehend this monument," says Mr. Malcolm, " the spectator 



must suppose himself in a diving-bell at the bottom of the 
sea. When he has shaken off the terrors of his situation 
he will find on his right hand the Buckingham, of sixty-six 
guns, jammed in a bed of coral. Directly before him he 
will perceive a figure pointing to a spot on a globe, either 
intending to shew where the deceased body was committed 
to the deep, or the latitude where an action mentioned in 
the inscription was fought." The figures introduced into 
this piece of monumental composition are History, Navi- 
gatian, and Hibernia ; they are represented among the 
rocks, with the sea above their heads ; above all is the 
Admiral himself, ascending amidst heavy clouds — the latter 
being highly suggestive of ill-made pancakes. (' Old and 
New London,' by E. Walford, vol. iii., p. 417.)

THE HISTORY OF ANTIGUA. 



in tail general of the real estate devised subject to the dower 
of his mother, widow and relict of Jacob Thibou his father, 
now wife of Francis Delap of Antigua, Esq. ; and whereas 
Esther Thibou on the death of her husband became dowable 
in f of the said real estate ; and whereas Stephen Blizard of 
Antigua, Esq., hath in pursuance of authority given him by 
George Blount come to an agreement with Thomas JarvLs 
to lease the dower of Esther to him for her life at the rate 
of £580 currency a year. Now George Blount and Esther 
his wife grant, etc., to Thomas Jarvis all her dower from 
the lands and negros of Jacob Thibou the younger in 
Antigua or in Long Island adjoining, which is by law deemed 
part of Antigua, all which estates are now in the possession 



of Thomas Jarvis in right of Rachel his wife, or by virtue 
of deeds executed by chem since their intermarriage, to have 
and to hold for 99 years if Esther Blount so long lives and 
to determine upon her death, yielding therefore on the Ist 
August yearly £580 currency at the south door of the Court 
House in the town of St. John's free from all taxes, and 
Thomas Jarvis is not to send off any slaves charged with 
the dower of Esther, save from Antigua to Long Island or 
from Long Island to Antigua under a penalty of £50 cuiTency 
for each slave, and lastly George Blount and Esther his wife 
constitute Stephen Blizard and Thomas Warner of Antigua, 
Esquires, and William Warner of Antigua, merchant, their 
Attorneys.

buildings, slaves, and cattle, by Indenture of demise dated 
10 Dec. 1768, made between her of the 1 part, and Walter

ment of the rents by the defendant. In 1773 Catherine 
Thibou drew bills for £600 in favour of William Thibou 
for an-ears. The bills were not accepted and the defendant

1851. Sir John Tobin, Mayor of Liverpool, knighted

John Tobin. 

Born in the house now occupied by Mr. Foot, solicitor, 
in Endless Street, January 26, 1770. His father had been 
destined for one of the liberal professions, and his mother 
was the daughter of Mr. Webb, an opulent West Indian, 
who then resided in the Manor House at Stratford. At the 
commencement of the American war Mr. Tobin repaired to 
Nevis, to take charge oi" an estate in that island, which had 
been resigned to him on his maiTiage by his father. He 
left the subject of this article, and two brothers, under the 
care of their maternal grandfather, Mr. Webb, by whom 
they were placed in the school of Dr. Mant, at Southampton. 
Even at this early period young Tobin evinced a decided 
taste for dramatic representations. 

On the conclusion of peace in 1783, Mr. Tobin returned 
to England, and settled in a mercantile business at Bristol ; 
and his father-in-law in consequence removed to Redland 
in the neighbourhood. In the ensuing year John Tobin 
was articled to Mr. Wildman, an eminent solicitor in Lin- 
coln's Inn. He passed through his clerkship, without 
acquiring a partiality for his profession, and devoted his 
leisure to the cultivation of literature, especially poetry. 

On the expiration of his term he was admitted into 
partnership with his late master. His inclination for the 
drama became, however, still more decided. He composed 
several pieces, and was subjected to all the mortifications, 
difficulties, and disappointments, which generally await the 
early efforts of a writer for the stage. At length, in 18(i3, 
he obtained for a farce entitled " All's fair in Love," the 
honour of a representation ; but it was coldly received. He 
however persevered, and, by the influence of Mr. Wroughton, 
procured the acceptance of " The Honey Moon," to which 
he owes his reputation. At this period his constitution 
suffered from the effects of his studious and sedentary 
habits. He spent the winter in Cornwall, for a change of 
air and scene; but the appearances of consumption becoming 



more marked and alarming, he was induced to undertake a 
voyage to the West Indies. He embarked at Bristol, with 
aggravated symptoms, in the latter end of 1804, and sailed 
to Cork. From thence he took his departure on the 7th of 
December ; and the first night proving boisterous, exhausted 
the sinking powers of his enfeebled frame. On the ensuing 
morning he was found dead in his bed, and his remains 
were can'ied back for interment at Cork. 

" The Honey Moon " was represented at Drury Lane 
on the 31st of January following, and received with that 
applause, which it has never since failed to call forth. 
Subsequently his other productions were offered to public 
notice. " The Curfew," was acted in 1806 ; " The School 
for Authors," in 1808 ; and " The Faro Table," in 1816 ; 
but all without attaining that rank which was at once 
assigned to his principal composition.

From the Mackinen Petition it appears that William

Montserrat, Mr. David Rice, and Mr. Thomas Trant, jun., 
of Loudon, etc., to sell or let that estate, and two of them 
accordingly in 1702 granted a lease of it for 99 years to Dr. 
Daniel Mackinen at £100 a year. 

1709, Oct. 3. Nicholas Trant of Falmouth, merchant, 
is refused any grant of land because in the late war he had 
been iu the French service. 

1710, Jan. 3. Nicholas Trant petitions for four parcels

Martin French of Montserrat referred in his will of

1729-30. Montserrat Census. Dominick Trant, Esq., 
Counsellor. 2 cattle mills, 3 men, 1 girl under 8, 80 negro

1803, Dec. 10. At Montserrat, in the West Indies, 
aged 29, Dominick James Trant, esq. {Ibid., 1804, p. 182.) 

Mr. Fitzgibbon Trant of Dovea, co. Tipperary, informs 
me that : " Sir Patrick Trant having left Ireland with 
James II. his estates were confiscated and all records lost. 
We believe he was one of a very large family located in the 
County Kerry. My great-grandfather Dominick Trant 
mentions in one of his letters the amount of income he 
received from his ' cozen ' in the West Indies — some £700 
a year, and he also mentions meeting his relation Mr. Trant 
of Montserrat during a tour on the Continent about 1759. 

"There is still an estate in St. Kitts called Trant's 
Estate, now held by the Rev. William R. C. Adamson, but 
by a deed dated 6 Oct. 1775 Dominique Henry Trant and 
Sarah Blake conveyed this estate in trust to Sir Richard 
Neave, Bart., and John Willet. In the ' Last Colonel of 
the Irish Brigade,' by Mr. M. J. O'Connell, are to be found 
some notes and a pedigree of the Trants prior to Sir Patrick 
Trant, and in King James II. army list (infantry) are to be 
found some more particulars."

Freeland, Esq., all of Antigua, of the .")th part. Whereas 
Clement Tudway, late of Wells, Esq., duly made his will, 
dated the 22nd Dec. 1814, will recited, and the will was 
duly proved by Edward Foster and Richard Thomas Whalley; 
and whereas Edward Foster and John Holloway have de- 
parted this life ; and whereas Robert Charles Tudway is the 
eldest son of .John Paine Tudway and was born at his house 
in Wells on the 4th July 1808 and was baptized in the 
parish church of St. Cuthbert in Wells on the 20th Sep. 
1808 ; and whereas by virtue of an Indenture dated the 6th 
July 1829 and of a common recovery suffered in perform- 
ance thereof in Trinity Term now last past, wherein William 
Wilkins Dyne was tenant, Edwin Lovell demandant, John 
Paine Tudway first vouchee, and Robert Charles Tudway 
second vouchee, it was witnessed that by force thereof 
certain farms, etc., were assigned to the use of the persons 
mentioned and to such uses as John Paine Tudway and 
Robert Charles Tudway should appoint, with power of 
revocation and new appointment by them during their joint 
lives, and by the said Indenture it was witnessed that for 
barring and destroying all estates tail and remainders and 
for the nominal considerations mentioned Richard Thomas 
Whalley and John Paine Tudway and his son did grant and 
convey to \\'illiam Wilkins Dyne all those plantations to the 
like uses and trusts ; and whereas it is appreliended that 
some difficulty may hereafter arise in proving the time of 
birth of Robert Charles Tudway and that he was of age at 
the time of the hereinbefore recited Indenture, the persons 
who can testify to such facts being few in number and of 
advanced ages, it has therefore been agreed that a new 
bargain and sale of the said plantations shall be executed. 
Now this Indenture witnesseth that in conformity with an 
Act of the Leeward Caribbee Islands, and in consideration 
of 5s. each, John Paine Tudway, Robert Charles Tudway, 
and Richard Thomas Whalley convey to William Wilkins 
Dyne all that plantation in the division of Old North Sound 
and parish of St. Peter, Parham, called Parham Hill Planta- 
tion, and all those slaves as by three schedules annexed, and 
lastly they constitute Samuel Athill, Nicholas Nugent, 
George Weatherill Ottley, and John Freeland their Attorneys.

Paine Tudway, John Westmore and James Shaw, clerks to

Close Roll, 5 Geo. II., Part 7, No. 21. 

Indenture made the 16th Nov. 1730 between Frederick 
Voguell of London, merchant, and Frances Voguell his 
■wife, of the one part, and Richard Oliver of Antigua, Esq., 
of the other part. Whereas by Indentures of Lease of 
4th Nov. 1730 tripartite between Frederick Voguell and 
Frances Voguell his wife (daughter and only child of Tho- 
mas Vaughan, late of Mills, Berks, Esq., deceased, who was 
son and heir of James Vaughan, Esq., deceased, formerly 
Lieut.-Governor of Antigua), of the 1st part, Richard Oliver, 
Esq., of the 2nd part, Gilbert Fleming of St. Kitts, formerly 
of Antigua, Esq., of the 3rd part, Frederick Voguell and 
Frances his wife demised to Richard Oliver, among other 
lands, all that Roger Williams's plantation, containing 470 
or 500 acres, in St. John's and New Divisions in Antigua, 
bounded N. with the lands formerly sold by James Vaughan 
to Thomas Buncombe, S. with the lands formerly belonging 
to Luke Child and John Coker, now or late in the possession 
of William Home, W. with the lands formerly of one 
Fletcher, now or late possessed by Samuel Martin, Esq., 
E. with the lands formerly of John Lucas and John Traverse, 
but now or late in the possession of Edward Byam, jun., 
Esq., and the heirs of one Penny, deceased, to hold from 
the 17th Aug. then last past for 21 years, with a covenant 
to leave on the premises all works, buildings, etc., mentioned 
in a schedule annexed to the Indenture, valued at £111 
currency ; and whereas the title of the said demised plan- 
tation has been but lately recovered at law in Antigua by 
Frederick Voguell and Frances his wife from William 
Gregson of London, Gentleman, under an intail thereof 
created by the last will of James Vaughan aforesaid, de- 
ceased, dated 14th Oct. 1681, and on which recovery 
William Gregson has brought a writt of error before the 
Commander-in-Chief of the Leeward Islands and the Council 
of Antigua, upon which writt of error and the judgment to 
be given an apiwal is intended to be brought to the King 
in Council by either party against whom the Commander- 
in-Chief and Council shall give judgment ; and whereas it 
is agreed by the Indenture of Lease that if it is finally 
determined on the appeal that the title is not in Frederick 
Voguell and Frances his wife (in right of Frances) but in 
William Gregson and his heirs, who claim the same under 
Roger Williams, formerly of Antigua, planter, that the 
intail created by James Vaughan's will is sufficiently docked 
and baiTed, then the said lease shall be void from the 
beginning ; and whereas Richard Oliver is minded to build 
a windmill and also, if he shall then proceed, to erect a 
convenient and necessary small dwelling-house, which will 
be to the advantage of Frederick and Frances Voguell, but 
it is not provided for by the lease. Now this Indenture 
witnesseth that in consideration of the said Indenture of 
Demise and of bs. Frederick Voguell and Frances his wife 
agree to pay to Richard Oliver the half part of the full value 
of such erections, the value to be settled by four indifferent 
men which shall be then inhabitants of Antigua, and if the 
appeal confirms the right of Frederick and Frances Voguell, 
then the lease to Richard (Jliver to remain in force. 

[A copy of above deed was recorded at Antigua in 
Libro Y, and it is therein stated that the estate was leased 
for £200 sterling a year.]

the said premises for 1000 years for securing repayment 
with interest at 4 per cent., and Henry Voguell had become 
bound to Frances Strongfellow for the payment, and also 
reciting that Henry Voguell did make his last will dated 
the 12th June 1746 (recited), and also reciting that the 
money advanced by Henry Voguell in his life-time and by 
his Ex'ors since his death amounted to £21,000, and that

•whereas the marriage soon after took effect, and the said 
recited articles were sent to Antigua to be recorded, but 
being delayed in the passage did not arrive within the time 
prescribed by the Acts for Registering Deeds after the 
execution thereof ; and whereas it is necessary that the 
articles should be carried into execution by a proper convey-

during her life to receive the rents to her sole use, and after 
her death to the use of Richard Cleeve for life, and after the 
death of the survivor to all children as they may appoint, 
and failing their appointment to the first son and his heirs 
male lawful, etc., and if Henry Voguell, son and heir of 
Frederick, should pay to Anthony Furstenau and George 
Edward Pakenham the two-thirds of the £21,000 and dis- 
charge the mortgage of the 7 th and 8th June 1734, they 
are to receive the money and lay it out in lands in fee simple 
in England, and they are to receive all rents till a son of 
Richard and Elizabetli Cleeve is 21, and to apply a sum not 
exceeding £100 a year meantime towards the education and 
maintenance of such eldest son, and not exceeding £50 a 
year for each younger child till 21, and all residue to increase 
the portions of younger children, the said lands are free 
from all claims, etc., save one Indenture made the 13ih

because the plantation was sold without the sanction of the 
mortgagor. He recites the will of James Vaughan, Esq., 
and goes on to say that his widow married William William- 
son and by deed quadrupartite of 10 and 11 Feb. 1696 
between Thomas Vaughan, son and heir of James Vaughan, 
Esq., William Williamson and Elizabeth his wife, of the 
2nd part, Roger Williams, of the 3rd part, and Joseph 
French, of the 4th part, Thomas Vaughan and William 
Williamson and Elizabeth his wife for £500 conveyed to 
Roger Williams the said plantation. (This was a mortgage.) 
Roger Williams in 1713 owed £1200 to William Gregson, 
and mortgaged the estate to him. Roger Williams by will 
left it to Allen Smith and William G-regson. (B. T. Lee- 
ward Islands, vol. 21.) 

[The Act for the sale of these lands was evidently 
negatived by the King, as Mrs. Prances Voguell in 1730 
stated that she had just succeeded in recovering possession 
of them. Francis Fane was the legal adviser to the Privy 
Council and all Acts, etc., passed through his hands, the 
King and Council acting on his written report. — V. L. 0.]

1647, Jan. 10. Samuel Winthrop writes to his father 
of " Cap'an Clement Everet (of 8' Christopher's), a justice 
of peace, who being o"' country man & hearing o"^ name, vsed 
me verry courtiously, and assisted me much in my law suites, 
which were there verry many. Justice Froth,* who was of yC 
acquaintance in England (as he informs me), was his grand- 
father. I have left in his handes my busines in S' X'per's." 
(' Winthrop Papers,' part iv., p. 239.) 

It is probable that this Clement Everard was a member 
of the Essex family whose pedigree may be seen in the 
Visitation of that county. 

1659. Twelve articles of complaint were drawn up 
against Colonel Clement Everard the Deputy-Governor of 
St. Christopher's, but the petition and sentence have been

had been devastated by the French since the notice of the 
Peace.

The Vernon Family. 



Mr. Urban, — I should be much obliged to any of your 
correspondents who may be able to give me some particulars 
respecting the family of Vernon of Antigua, formerly of 
Egham, Surrey, St. James's, Westminster, and Lombard 
Street. My father (whose eldest son I am) is the present 
representative of this family. The Antigua estate was a 
grant, made in 1664-5, by Lord Willoughby of Parham, and 
Sir W. Stapleton, Captain-General of the Leeward Islands, 
to my ancestor Colonel John Vernon, an officer in the 
Royalist Army. The chief matters concerning which I 
desire information are: — 1. The Christian name of this 
Colonel Vernon's father. 2. The name of Colonel Vernon's 
first wife. 3. The name of his eldest son's wife. From 
what I gather from family records I think these two latter 
names are two of the following : Boyle, Carew, Clifford, 
Moore, Phipps, Duncombe, Robartes, Hedges, Berkeley. 
Manning and Bray in their ' History of Surrey,' mention 
the old mansion of this family. Little Foster Hall, now 
called Egham Lodge, as "belonging to the Vernons formerly." 
Little Foster Hall or Egham Lodge was in the possession 
of my great uncle, James Vernon, at the time of his death, 
and soon after my grandfather came into the property in 
the West Indies, Little Foster Hall seems to have ceased to 
belong to the Vernons ; it subsequently became the property 
of a Mr. Blaythwayte. Tiie arms of this family are, Or ; 
on a fesse azure, three garbs or ; crest, on a wreath or, a 
demi-figure of Ceres, habited azure, crined or, holding a 
garb or in the sinister arm, and a reaping-hook in the dexter 
hand. Motto " Ver non semper viret." The above-named 
Colonel John Vernon was born about 1610, and died in 
1689 (I think in the West Indies, for I cannot find his will 
at Doctors' Commons). His second wife was Elizabeth 
Everard, widow of Thomas Everard, Governorf of the Lee- 
ward Islands. His eldest son by his first wife (whose name 

* If I recollect rightly this Map was shewn to me by the Hon. 
Thomas D. Foote at Parham Hill.— V. L. 0. 

f This is incorrect. A Colonel Clement Everard, perhap.s father 
of Thomas, was Lieut.-Governor of St. Kitts in 16.59. 



VERNON EAMILY. 



177 



I wish to discover) was John Vernon, born 1650, died 1704, 
concerning whom I find the following among family 
records : — John Vernon, Esq. of Golden Square and 
Antigua, died at his house in Golden Square, 1704. Will 
in Doctors' Commons, proved in November 1705. The 
Antigua estate is therein devised to his eldest son John, a 
third of the nett profits being left annually to his wife 
Elizabeth (who died in 1737). The said John Vernon was 
a cousin of Mr. James Vernon, Secretary of State to King 
William III., and father to Admiral Vernon, — and his 
funeral was attended by Lord Radnor, Mr. Secretary Ver- 
non, Mr. Vernon of the Exchequer, Sir Charles Hedges, 
and Mr. Constantine Phipps of the Temple. A list of the 
same, in the handwriting of the said John Vernon, is in the 
hands of a Mr. Martin of the Heralds' Office. The Execu- 
tors of this John Vernon were Sir AVilliam Mathew, K.B., 
Colonel Rowland Williams, Colonel Edward Byam, Major 
Edmund Nott, Archibald Hutchinson,* and Nathaniel Car- 
penter. This John Vernon had by his wife Elizabeth 
(whose surname I wish to ascertain) three sons and two 
daughters. The eldest son, John Vernon, born in 1696, 
died 1765, was I believe a colonel in the army, and was 
a privy councillor for Antigua. He married (1) Anne 
Lysons, only daughter and heiress of George Lysons, of 
Lincoln's Inn, and of Gloucestershire, by Magdalene, 
daughter of Sir Marmaduke Rawdon of Hoddesdon, Herts. 
Their four sons and three daughters all died s.p. One of 
the sons, James Vernon, succeeded to the estate in 1765, 
but died s.p. in 1769, having married Margaret Gascoyne, 
daughter of Sir Crisp Gascoyne of London, and sister of 
Bamber Gascoyne, M.P. for Truro, and high steward of 
Southwark, etc. John Vernon (1696 — 1765) married (2) 
Elizabeth Weston, who died in 1760, and was buried at 
Paddington Church. They had two sons and two daugh- 
ters. The eldest son, Robert, died s.p. The second John 
Joseph James Vernon, born 1744, died 182.3, succeeded in 
1769 to the estates. He was a captain in the 4th Dragoons. 
He married (1) Mary only dau. and heiress of the Rev. 
Randal Andrews, vicar of Preston, liancashire, and by her 
had nine children, who all died s.p. except the eldest son, 
John Vernon, born 1773, died 1859, a Heut.-colonel in the 
army (23rd Fusiliers, and subsequently 18th Hussars). He 
married (2) Hannah, daughter of Miles Mason, Esq., of 
Westhouse, Dent, Yorkshire, and by her had thirteen 
children, of whom the eldest son, William Vernon, M.A. 
in holy orders, and formerly Vicar of Littlehampton, and of 
Patcham, Sussex, is now the head of the family. Lieut.- 
Colonel John Vernon, married Elizabeth Grace Casamajor, 
daughter of Justinian Casamajor, Esq., of Potterells, Herts ; 
but their three sons, John, Justinian (a captain in the 15th 
Hussars), and George James (a captain in the 8th Hussars), 
all died s.p. The executors of John Vernon (1696—1765) 
were Sir Edmund Thomas, Bart., of Wenvoe Castle, Glamor- 
ganshire, Charles Spooner, and the Rev. Martin Madan of 
St. Christopher's, West Indies, and W. Brown, of Cursitor 
Street, Middlesex. The two sisters of this John Vernon 
married respectively, Thos. Hurst, Esq., of Stamford, and 
William Oxenden, Esq., of Kent. I have found among the 
family papers various deeds and other MSS. relating to the 
families of Boyle, Carew, CliflFord, etc., but none of these 
enable me positively to determine the points I have above 



indicated as the objects of my inquiry. The peerage of the 
late Francis Vernon, Baron Orwell of Newry, co. Down, 
Ireland, Viscount Orwell, and Earl of Shipbrooke, who died 
in 1783, was considered on his death to be only dormant; 
and my grandfather (the late Captain Vernon, of Antigua, 
Egham, and White Hall, near Clitheroe, Lancashire) was 
considered as having a claim to it, but he did not take his 
claim to the House of Lords ; and my uncle, the late Lieut.- 
Colonel Vernon, has frequently asserted that he had in his 
possession all the documents necessary to substantiate his 
claim, but where all these are I cannot discover, for he left 
most of his papers I believe to a stranger. Lord Shipbrooke 
was the nephew and heir of the celebrated Admiral Vernon, 
and I believe he claimed the barony of Orwell in right of 
his mother Lady .\rethusa Boyle, daughter of Charles Boyle, 
Baron Cliflford, of Lanesborough, eldest son of Richard 
Boyle, 2nd Earl of Cork and 1st Earl of Burlington. —
