The late Mr. Robert Pa lg rave made considerable 
Collections relating to his Family History, and presumed 
Ancestry, for many years, and up to the date of his death 
in 1841. 

An investigation to establish the Pedigree of the Pulham 
Branch was commenced in 1873 by the Editors, and the proof 
of that Pedigree, for over three centuries, having led to and 
involved the accumulation of much valuable information con- 
nected with that and other lines of Palgrave, it was decided, 
at the request and cost of Mr. CHARLES GEORGE PALGRAVE, 
to arrange and print them in this form. 

The Editors are greatly indebted to Mr. Charles Bridger 
for the long and painstaking assistance he has rendered in 
every step of the work.

T^^^^glALGRAVE, Palgrava in Domesday, a plea- 
f\(8^i^'" sant v '" a S e an ^ parish in the county of 
[ |?^ §yT Suffolk, on the borders of Norfolk, gave 
its name to a family so called ; but 
Blomefield, the historian of Norfolk, says that the 
Palgraves were "a very ancient family," and took 
their name from a place called Pagrave in the hundred 
of South Greenhowe in that county. An examination 
of early Palgrave records clearly establishes the co- 
existence of two main lines, who both eventually adopted 
one common form of surname : and this theory enables 
us to account for the frequency of its occurrence (and 
the impossibility of assigning all to one origin) in the 
fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. It is worthy of re- 
mark also, that, while each of these wide-spreading 
families were at times styled variously " Pagrave " and 


t% Palgrave," as a rule that deriving its name from Pagrave 
in the north so wrote it, and the Palgraves of the south 
were as generally distinguished by the addition of 
the ' I/ 

Soon after the Conquest a part of Pagrave in 
Norfolk was separated from the rest and became the 
village called Pagrave Parva, or Little Pagrave \ whilst 
the other part was distinguished as Pagrave Magna* 

The lordship of the former, says the same authority, 
was for many generations held by the Pagrave or, as 
the name became, Palgrave family, and here they had 
a seat, to which they built a chapel and attached to it 
the tythes of the manor, so that this chapel became 
parochial, and it was for a long time independent of 
the adjoining parish of Sporle ; but ultimately the 
a/ivowson and rectory of Little Pagrave were con- 
solidated with the vicarage of Sporle, and the lofty and 
spacious church of the Virgin Mary at Sporle became 
th<r parish church of both places. The rectory and 
vicarage were both appropriated to the alien priory 
<A Sporle, which was a cell to the monastery of 
St. Florence at Saumers, in the diocese of Anjou in 
France, of the order of St. Bennet. The priory at 

* HIornefielcTs Norfolk, vol. vi. pp. 119, 125, 127. 


Sporle is believed to have been founded by Henry II., 
who was Earl of Anjou, and on the suppression of 
English alien priories in 1420 it became vested in 
the Crown, until King Edward VI. gave it to the 
College of Eton, with which college the patronage still 
remains. " The Chapel at Pagrave," says Blomefield, 
"had long been delapidated," but in his time (1736) 
its site was well known. Pagrave Parva, although 
it still retains its separate name, is included in the 
parish of Sporle- with- Pagrave, and the whole is now 
designated Sporle. 

In the reign of Henry II. John de Pagrave, son of 
Thomas de Pagrave, gave to the monks of Castleacre 
a yearly rent ; and it appears by the register of that 
abbey that several of the Palgraves gave lands to it 
from time to time. (*) 

By the will of Henry Palgrave, who died in 1527, 
it is found that his widow was jointured on the manor 
of Pagrave Parva ; and indeed their possessions at this 
place remained in the Palgrave family until the final 
dispersion of their estates in 1737. 

By Domesday Book it will be seen that at the time 
of the Survey there was a town in the hundred of 
Erpingham, in the county of Norfolk, called Barning- 
ham or Berningham, the lordship of which, after the 

b 2 


Conquest, was held by the Bigots, Earls of Norfolk, 
under whom the ancient family of De Berningham were 
early enfeoffed. After remaining in the latter family 
for several generations, their possessions passed to the 
Hethersets, ( 2 ) by the marriage of John de Hetherset 
with Elizabeth, one of the sisters and coheirs of Richard 
de Berningham. 

This John de Hetherset was the 
son of Sir Simon de Hetherset, lord 
of Cringleford in Norfolk, and one of 
the Justices Itinerant, by Cecilia his 

John Pagrave acquired the lordship of Berningham 
by marrying Sibilla, * one of the two daughters and 
coheirs of William de Hetherset, son and heir of John 
de Hetherset, who in 1337 was made guardian of the 
wool customs in Norfolk. ( 8 ) William de Hetherset 
married Eva, daughter of Sir John de Hetherset, Knt, 

and, leaving no son, this ancient family 
became extinct in the male line.

riage entitled to quarter with the arms of Palgrave, 
which, according to Blomefield, were 
Az., a lion rampant arg., and for a crest 
a leopard's head regardant ppr* 

A view of Berningham church from 
the north north-east is here given. 
A family named Winter was possessed of an estate 
at Berningham from a very early period. 

John Winter, son and heir of William Winter, a 
representative for the county of Norfolk in 1409, married 
for his second wife Elizabeth, one of the two daughters 
and coheirs (already mentioned) of William de Hetherset 
and Eva his wife, and consequently sister of the wife 
of John de Pagrave. By her he acquired a considerable 
estate, which was thenceforth called Berningham Winter 
or Ton Berningham to distinguish it from the pos- 
sessions of the Palgraves in Berningham Northwood. 

* Blomefield's Norfolk, vol. viii. p. 92 et seq. Blomefield gives for Heth- 
erset a "leopard salient." Other authorities, a "lion." Certain it is that 
the Palgraves of Berningham quartered Arg. a lion salient or on their monu- 
ments in Berningham church ; but there is no record of these arras at 
Heralds' College. 

The Palgrave arms frequently occur with the variations of the lion being 
gold or silver on the blue field, and either simply "rampant" or rampant 
gardant. It is reasonably conjectured that the family did not bear arms 
till the Hetherset marriage, when the arms of the heiress-wife were adopted 
(as was frequently the case) as the cognizance of the descendants. — S. T. 


In the hall of the manor-house of 
Berningham Winter* were the arms 
of Winter, Cheqtty or and sa. a /ess 
arg. ; in the parlour, Winter quartered 
Berningham and impaled Hetherset, 
and also quartered the coats of nu- 
merous families into which the Berninghams, the 
Hethersets, and the Winters had married. ( 4 ) 

John Pagrave, eldest son of John Pagrave and Sibilla 
(Hetherset) his wife, married, first, Margaret,t daughter 
of Clement Herward of Aldborough in Norfolk, ( 6 ) and, 
secondly, Anne daughter and heir of Henry Sturmer of 
the city of Norwich. The latter survived her husband, 

* Margaret Paston, writing to John Paston in 1450, says, " It ys told me 
that the Lord Moleyns xuld kepe his fastyngong (/>., Shrovetide) att John 
Wynter's plase." — Paston Letters. 

t Blomefield calls this wife of John Pagrave the daughter of William 
Hanningfield ; and at " Hawsted Howse " in Suffolk, the seat of Roger 
Drury her third husband, the arms attributed to " Hanningfeild," Or 
a chev. sa., occur impaled with Drury. — Gage's Suffolk^ p. 443. William 
Hanningfield died 1426, leaving three daughters his coheirs, Elizabeth aged 
4j Katherine aged 2, and Agnes aged 30 weeks. The second daughter, it is 
believed, married Henry Sturmer of Norwich, and Katherine Sturmer, 
widow, is mentioned in the will of John Banyard the second husband of the 
lady in question. It is just possible she may have been their only child and 
heir, as the Visitation states she was, or she may have been the Agnes 
mentioned in the Inq. /. m. f taken after the death of Wm. Hanningfield, 
as his youngest child, and on inheriting the estates of Henry Sturmer and 
Katherine his wife, after the death of the latter, was erroneously treated at 
the Visitation as heiress in blood. 



and intermarried secondly with John Banyard of Norwich, 
and thirdly with Roger Drury of Hawstead in Suffolk. ( 6 ) 

John Pagrave, the eldest son by the first marriage, 
wedded Margaret, daughter of Sir William Yelverton, 
Knt., of Rougham, Norfolk.* ( 7 ) 

Henry Pagrave, their son, married Anne, daughter 
of John Glemham of Glemham in Suffolk. ( 8 ) He died 
in 15 16 and was buried in the parish church of Berning- 
ham Northwood, where there is a curious monumental 
brass to his memory and to that of his wife and of their 
twelve children, an engraving of which is annexed. 

Clement Pagrave, their eldest son, married Margaret, 
daughter of William Rede of Beccles in Suffolk. ( 9 ) 
He died in 1583 and his wife in 1566. They were 
both buried in the church of Berningham Northwood. 

Margaret the daughter of Clement Palgrave married 
first, temp. Queen Elizabeth, Thomas Hoo ; and secondly 
John Ferrour of Gressenhall. ( 10 ) 

John Palgrave, a learned and upright magistrate, 
"descended from many worthy ancestors of great 

• John Palgrave was one of the gentlemen of Norfolk who, in 1452, 
petitioned the " High and mighty Prince " the Duke of Norfolk to come 
into Norfolk for the suppression of certain riots of which they complained ; 
and in 1455 Thomas Canon, writing to John Paston, offered to sell him land 
in Little Palgrave on condition that he " kept it counsel from John Palgrave " 
until the bargain was concluded. — Paston Letters. 


" authority in the county," commended his spirit to his 
Redeemer, as his epitaph informs us, in 1611, being 
then in his eighty-first year. An engraving of his 
monument in Barningham church is annexed. He left, 
by Urith, daughter of William Saunders of Ewell, 
Surrey, an only son, Sir Augustine Palgrave, who had 
been knighted by James I. at Hinchingbroke, 24th 
November, 1604. He filled the office of Sheriff of 
Norfolk in 161 7, in which capacity, when attending 
Chief Justice Montague at the Norwich Assizes, he 
advised the Chief Justice to take the chair at the 
annual open-air preaching, which, according to ancient 
custom, was held in the " Green Yard " of the cathedral. 
To this innovation John Mingay, the then Mayor of 
Norwich, would by no means submit, whereupon the 
Chief Justice had to give way to the civic authority, 
and consoled himself by blaming the High Sheriff for 
his officiousness. 

Sir Augustine Palgrave married Elizabeth, daughter 
of Sir John Willoughby of Rysley in Derbyshire, by 
whom he had nine sons and five daughters. She 
" commended her spirit," as her epitaph records, in 1634, 
aged fifty- three. He and his wife were buried under 
a stately monument in the parish church of Berningham 
North wood, of which an engraving is here given.

John Palgrave, their eldest son and heir, was created 
a baronet 24th June, 1641. He married first Elizabeth, 
daughter of John Jermy of Gunton (") in Norfolk, 
who died in 1634, and secondly, Anne, daughter of Sir 
William De Grey of Merton, Norfolk, ( 12 ) and widow 
of Cotton Gascoigne, Esq., of Illington in Norfolk. ( 13 ) 
She survived her second husband, Sir John Palgrave, 
and died on Christmas Day, 1676, and was buried in 
the chancel of the church of St. Peter H ungate, 
Norwich, where there is a monument to her memory 
bearing the shields of Gascoigne (single), De Grey (in 
a lozenge), and Palgrave (single). Annexed is an 
engraving of this monument. The Palgrave arms also 
appear in stained glass. They had one daughter, 
Ursula, who married first William Barsham of Colkirk, 
and secondly Samuel Smith of Colkirk, Norfolk, and 
upon her issue by the second marriage the Palgrave 
estates ultimately devolved, as will be presently seen. 

John Palgrave was returned to Parliament for the 
county of Norfolk in 1640; and although created a 
baronet by Charles I., in the following year we find 
him in strong hostility to the Crown. This, however, 
does not prove any change in his political opinions. It 
may be that the honour was forced upon him for the 
sake of the fees which attended it ; but it is strong 


evidence of his social position at that time and of his 
ability to sustain this title. In 1642 he was made a 
commissioner for the maintenance of an army in Norfolk, 
and in the following year was appointed a commissioner 
for sequestering the estates of delinquents, and also a 
commissioner "for the relief of the Commonwealth." 
He was on the Committee of the Associated Counties 
of Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Cambridge, Hertford, and 
Huntingdon, to which Leicester was afterwards added. 
In 1643 h e was one of the Earl of Manchester's com- 
missioners for the surrender of King's Lynn, and on 
the 15th of February following he was named in the 
Ordinance for the defence of the kingdom and for the 
levying of money, and in September of that year he 
was appointed to treat with Prince Rupert at Newark. 

In 1650 he was appointed a Justice of the Peace for 
the county of Norfolk, and his last appointment appears 
to have been that of Commissioner of Assessments in 
1656. He never despaired of the Commonwealth, for in 
April, 1660, when a "Healing Parliament " was called, 
Sir John Palgrave consented to stand for the borough 
of Great Yarmouth, having that notorious regicide Miles 
Corbet as his colleague. They were elected by the 
corporation, who at that time claimed the sole right 
of voting for burgesses to Parliament, in exclusion of

the freemen at large. The latter however determined 
to assert their right to vote, and nominated Sir John 
Potts, Knt. and Bart., of Mannington in Norfolk, and 
Sir William D'Oyley, Bart., of Shotesham in Norfolk. 
The bailiffs made a return of Sir John Palgrave and 
Miles Corbet, and were ordered by the corporation not 
to sign or seal any other indenture which might be 
tendered to them. A petition to Parliament was then 
presented complaining of the return made by the bailiffs. 
It was referred to a Committee of the House of 
Commons, and Mr. Bailiff Emperor and Mr. Bends, the 
Town Clerk, went to London to defend what they 
considered to be the privileges of the corporation. The 
committee decided that the freemen at large were 
entitled to vote, and they ever after retained this pri- 
vilege until disfranchised in 1848. Palgrave and Miles 
Corbet were unseated, and Potts and D'Oyley declared 
duly elected, and they, being royalists, no doubt voted 
for the unconditional return of King Charles II. Miles 
Corbet fled to the continent, but was afterwards cap- 
tured, and ultimately hanged at Tyburn. Nothing 
apparently happened to Sir John Palgrave after the 
loss of his seat, for we hear of him no more. 

He died in 1672, aged sixty-seven, and was buried 
at Berningham North wood, and was succeeded in the 

c 2 


baronetcy by his eldest son Sir Augustine Palgrave, 
who married first Barbara, daughter and heir of Cotton 
Gascoigne of Illington, and secondly Catherine, daughter 
of Sir William Spring of* Pakenham, Suffolk, ( 14 ) and 
thirdly Anne, daughter of Sir Richard Grubham Howe 
of Wishford in Wiltshire. ( 16 ) Sir Augustine Palgrave 
was one of the Gentlemen of the Privy Chamber, and 
at the coronation of James I. his name stands at the 
head of the list of those in attendance on that occasion. 

In Sandford's book of the " Grand proceeding to 
" their Majesties Coronation from Westminster Hall to 
"the Collegiate Chufch of Saint Peter in Westminster 
"on Thursday, 23 rd of April, being the Festival of 
" St. George in y c year of our Lord 1685," there is a 
plate representing the " Gentlemen of y c Privy Cham- 
ber" in their habits, four abreast, the first being, as 
is supposed, " Sir Augustine Palgrave, Baronet." 

The annexed plate is from a drawing made from the 
above-mentioned engraving, and is believed to represent 
Sir Augustine Palgrave. He died in 1629, aged eighty- 
one, and was buried at Berningham North wood. 

Urith, daughter of Sir Augustine Palgrave, born 
in 1661, was married at Berningham North wood in 
1683 to Haynes Barlee, who was son of Haynes 
Barlee, Esq., and Mary his wife, daughter of William 



Riddlesden of London. He was a captain in the 
Essex Trained Bands, Deputy Lieutenant of, and in 
the Commission of the Peace for, that county. He 
died 6th July, 1691, in the twenty-seventh year of 
his age, and was %< invaulted," as his epitaph terms it, 
in Clavering church, Essex. (**) 

By his third marriage Sir Augustine Palgrave left 
an only son and heir, Sir Richard Palgrave, Bart., 
who died at Norwich in 1732, aged forty-four, and 
was the last of his race, buried in the Church of 
Berningham Northwood. Dying unmarried, and there 
being no known living male descendant of the first 
baronet, the tide became extinct. 

A suit in Chancery was then instituted, and under 
a decree of that court, the estates, which had been 
for centuries vested in the Palgrave family, were sold 
and dispersed, and the purchase-money divided among 
the four daughters of Samuel Smith of Colkirk, who 
was the son of Ursula Palgrave (by Samuel Smith 
her husband,) already mentioned as the daughter of 
Sir John Palgrave, Bart. ; they being declared to be 
the next of kin and coheiresses at law of Sir Richard 
Palgrave, the last baronet. 


* A Pedigree of the Baronet Family of Palgrave of Northwood Barn 
ingham is annexed. 


They were — 

i. Catherine, who married Thomas Bendish, Esq., 
and died s.p. ( 17 ) ; called of " Colkirk, jure tixoris" 

2. Urith, who married Stephen Offley of Norton 
Hall, Derbyshire. 

3. Theodosia, who married Samuel Sparrow of 
Lavenham in Suffolk, ( 18 ) and secondly, Samuel Freeman 
of Beverley, Yorkshire. 

4. Lucy, who married John Pett of Debenham, 
Suffolk, and secondly, Jonas Rolfe of Kings Lynn. 

The Pagrave estates at Berningham North wood came 
by purchase to the Windhams of Felbrigg. 

William Windham was lord in 1760. 

In the hall of the manor house of Berningham 
North wood were, with the arms of Palgrave, those 
of Wanton, Beaston, Drury, Rede, and others. 

The advowson of the rectory of Berningham North- 
wood was vested in the family of Berningham, who 
presented in the reign of Edward L, and passed from 
them to the Hethersets, and so to the Palgraves. 

In 1508, Henry Pagrave presented, and, dying in 
1524, Sir William Paston presented as guardian to 
Henry Palgrave's infant son, Clement Palgrave ; and 
the Palgraves continued to present until the death 
of Sir Richard Palgrave, the last baronet. * 

* John Palgrave died Rector in 1721.

[l) Page 3. Castleacre. 

Of this prior>-, to which the Palgraves were benefactors, some picturesqu. 
-uins still exist, especially the west front, a view of which is here given. 

At the Dissolution it was granted to the Duke of Norfolk, and i 
the property of the Earl of Leicester. 

(2) P. 4. H ETHERNET. 

The name is derived from the parish of Hethersetc, HtdmtUt in 

The manor here was possessed by Sir Simon Hetherset, "a man of 
note." From the Hethersets it passed to the P.igraves by the marriage 
already mentioned. 


(3) P. 4. Wool Customs. 

In the middle ages the duty upon wool exported formed a considerable 
item in the king's revenue from customs. 

These duties were usually farmed. 

Thus we find, by the Abbreviatio Rotulorum origiualium, that the 
celebrated Yarmouth Admiral, John Perebrown, farmed the king's customs 
on all wool exported. R. Assignavit Johfm Perbrown ad custunam 
/ana, &*c., inportu ville ntagne Jeremuth. Edward III. — See Perlustration 
of Great Yarmouth, vol. i. p. 204 ; ii. p. 182. 

(4) P. 6. Berningham Winter. 

This lordship, in the reign of Queen Elizabeth, passed into the possession 
of the great Norfolk family of Paston, and in 161 2, instead of the former 
hall, which was then pulled down, Sir Edward Paston, Knt., erected 
the present mansion, which continued with his descendants until 1756. 

In 1775, it came into the possession of the Mott family, the present 
owner being John Thomas Mott, Esq., who is the principal land owner 
in the parish. The west or entrance front of the hall remains in its 
original state, and presents a fine example of the style prevailing in the 
reign of James I., in which the double dormer is a conspicuous feature. 
The drawing-room is a good specimen of the Elizabethan style of internal 

(5) P. 6. Herward. 

This family, which bore Az. a fesse gabonee arg. and vert, between 
three owlets arg., had large estates at Aldburgh and at Boton in Norfolk. 
—Blomefield, vol. viii. p. 73, and vol. vi. pp. 359, 462. 

(6) P. 7. Drury. 

The Drurys were a very ancient and honorable family in the counties 
of Norfolk and Suffolk. 

The Drurys of Hawstead in Suffolk bore, Argent, on a chief vert a tau 
between two mullets pierced or. — See Gage's Suffolk, p. 405. 


Anne Drury of Norwich, widow, "late wife of Roger Drury, Squyer," 
by her will, proved in 1 503, desired " to be buryed in the hows of the Blak 
Ffryers in Norwich, by the grave of John Pagrave, sutyme my husband." 
She bequeathed to Henry Pagrave, her "neve," her "stondyng pece all 
gilt," with her father's and mother's arms thereon. To Anne Pagrave her 
" best gown," and to Margaret Drury a gown " next the best." She made 
Henry Pagrave one of her executors, and Sir Robert Drury, Knt, 

A branch of the Drury family established itself at Great Yarmouth 
in the sixteenth century, where, upon what had been the precinct of the 
Dominicans or Black Friars, Roger Drury erected a dwelling-house, which 
remains to this day, and has a cut-Hint front which is a good specimen of the 
style of architecture then prevailing. — See Per lustration , vol. ii. p. 432. 

(7) P. 7. YELVERTON. 

Sir William Yelverton was a Judge of the King's Bench in 1444, and 
was made a Knight of the Bath in 1460 ; and by Jane his first wife, 
daughter of Sir Oliver le Gros, was father of Sir John Yelverton, Esquire 
to the body of Edward IV. 

The Yelvertons were a very ancient and honorable Norfolk family, 
having large possessions at Rougham and elsewhere.

(8) P. 7. Glenham. 

Glenham of Glenham in Suffolk bore, Or, a chev. between three torteaux. 
They had also possessions in Norfolk, and matched with the best in that 
county. — Gage's Suffolk. 

(9) P. 7. Rede. 

William Rede, a merchant and citizen of London, obtained a grant of 
the manor and advowson of Beccles in 1539, on the dissolution of 
the great monastery of Bury St. Edmund's, to which they belonged. 



He bore, A 2., on a bend wavy or, three Cornish 
chough's ppr., within a bordure engrailed arg., charged 
with torteaux or, pallets az. 

Peter his brother, who was knighted by Charles V. 
for the winning of Tunis, in 1538, was allowed, with 
other augmentations, "a sword in pale, point down- 
wards, sticking into a Moor's head." 
A branch of the family settled at Great Yarmouth. 
For further particulars see Perlustration, vol. i. p. 109. Thomas Rede 
of Beccles married Theophila, one of the two daughters and coheirs of 
William Leman of Beccles (descended from an ancient Suffolk family) 
and by her left two daughters and coheirs, one of whom married the Rev. 
Richard Turner of Great Yarmouth, and the other the Rev. Samuel Lovick 
Cooper of Great Yarmouth, (see Perlustration, vol. ii. p. 202) ; the latter 
was the mother of Sir Astley Cooper, Bart., the celebrated surgeon. 

The Rev. Rede Cooper, second son of the Rev. Samuel Lovick Cooper, 
assumed the name and arms of Rede only, by royal sign manual, in pur- 
suance of the will of his maternal uncle, and succeeded to the Rede 
property at Beccles, and to other estates inherited by the Redes from the 
Wingfield, Naunton, and Leman families. —See Gage's Suffolk, 

(10) P. 7. FERROUR. 

John Fcrrour, Steward of the Manor of Gressenhall, Norfolk, by his will, 
made in 1483, gave lands there "to keep his anniversary." The north 
transept of the parish church at Gressenhall was called Ferrour's Chapel. 
A family of this name flourished at Norwich in the sixteenth century. 

Robert Ferrour was twice Mayor of Norwich, as was William his son, 
who died in 1577. Richard Ferrer, son of the latter, filled the same office 
in 1596, and died in 161 6. 

Richard Ferrour, or Ferrier, as the name became, son of the last-mentioned 
Mayor of Norwich, came to Yarmouth, where he appears to have soon 
taken root, for in 1643 he was chosen one of the bailiffs. His descendants, 
during that and the succeeding century, repeatedly filled the office of mayor, 
and also represented the borough in Parliament. 

A further account of this family will be found in the Perlustration of 
Great Yarmouth, vol. i. p. 237. 


(I I) P. 9. JERMY. 

John Jermy was lord of Gunton in Norfolk. This 
lordship was sold by his son to the Harbords, and is 
now enjoyed by Lord Suffield. 

Some account of the Jermy family will be found 
in the Perlustration^ vol. iii. p. 141 ; and also of the 
murder at Stanfield Hall, which will ever be connected 
with the name. 

Jermy bore, Arg.,a lion passant guardant gu. 

(12) P. 9. De Grey. 

The family of De Grey, ancestors of the present Lord Walsingham, 
acquired their estate at Merton in Norfolk, in the fourteenth century, by 
the marriage of Sir Thomas de Grey with Isabel daughter and coheir of 
Fulk Baynard, Esq. 

(13) P. 9. Gascoigne of Illington. 

Lady Palgrave by her first marriage was jointured on the manor and 
advowson of Illington, and in 1743 Sir John Palgrave, Baronet, in her right, 
presented the Rev. John Palgrave, M.A., to that rectory. 

(14) P. 12. Spring. 

This family bore, Arg. on a chevron between three mascles gu, as many 
cinquefoils or. 

They settled at Lavenham in Suffolk early in the fifteenth century, and 
afterwards flourished at Pakenham in the same county. 

John Spring was lord of the manor of Gorlcston, Suffolk, temp. Hen. VIII. 
— See Perlustration, vol. iii. p. 317. 

A Pedigree of this ancient family has been privately printed. 

(15) P. 12. HOWE of Wishford. 

John Howe of Wishford, son of John Howe, Paymaster General of the 
Forces to Queen Anne, was created a peer by the title of Baron Chedworth, 
and died in 1742. 



The second lord died in 1 781, and was succeeded by his nephew, who 
resided for many years at Ipswich, and made frequent visits to Yarmouth. 
He was remarkable for his eccentricity and for his peculiar will, printed in 
the Gentleman's Magazine for 1804. — See Perlustration, vol. ii. p. 161, and 
Gage's Suffolk, p. 4. 

(16) P. 13. Barlee. 

The family of Barlee came originally from Barlee, 
or Barley, in Hertfordshire, and settled at Albury in 
that county : had possessions at an early period at 
Clavering in Essex. 

Henry Barlee filled the office of Sheriff of Herts 
and Essex in 1466. 

William his son forfeited the family estates by 
joining Perkin Warbeck in 1550. His son Henry was 
Sheriff of Essex and Herts in 1524. Under the will of Palgrave Barlee of 
Clavering, some of the family estates passed to Catherine, the only daughter 
of William Buckle of Ditchingham, by Bridget his wife, daughter and at 
length heir of Edward Hobart, Esq., by Catherine his wife, daughter of 
Haynes Barlee and sister of Palgrave Barlee, both of Clavering, whereupon 
Catherine Buckle obtained a grant of the name and arms of Barlee — Barry, 
wavy of six, sa. and erm., with a canton for difference.— See Perlustration, 
vol. iii. p. 265. Frederick Palgrave Barlee is now (1877) Lieutenant 
Governor of British Honduras. 

(17) P. 14. Thomas Bendish. 

He was descended from "the very ancient family 
of Sir Thomas Bendish of Essex, Ambassador from 
King Charles I. to the Grand Seignior," and from 
Thomas Bendish, who resided at Great Yarmouth, 
and took a prominent part in the civil and religious 
controversies in that reign, as may be seen in the 
Perlustration, vol. iii. p. 281. This Thomas Bendish left 
one son, Thomas Bendish of Gray's Inn, who married, in 
1669, Bridget, daughter of General Ireton by Bridget his wife, eldest daughter 
of Oliver Cromwell. He resided on the Southtown road, Great Yarmouth, 


and dying in 1707, was buried in St. Nicholas' church, where his hatchment 
still remains, bearing, Arg. a chevron between three rams' heads cus. for 
Bendish imp. ertn. a bend voided or, for I ret on. By the above marriage 
there were two sons and one daughter, the latter being the well-known 
and eccentric Bridget Bendish, who is said greatly to have resembled 
her grandfather, the Lord Protector. 

The eldest son was Thomas Bendish, who married Catherine, the 
granddaughter of Sir John Palgrave, and one of the coheiresses, and he is 
said to have squandered the fortune acquired by her, and to have gone 
to the West Indies. 

(18) P. 14. Sparrow. 

A large landed proprietor in Suffolk of this name had the misfortune 
to differ with his humble neighbours. Their cause was espoused by the 
parson of the parish, who had his own ground of quarrel, and who 
preached a sermon from the text, " Fear not, you are of more value than 
many sparrows" 


[|T the commencement of the sixteenth 
century Henry Pagrave was lord both 
of the Manor of Thuxton and the Manor 
of Berningham- North wood, for in 1513 
he appointed both Manors to remain in the hands of 
Sir Robert Brandon, William Paston, Esq., Anne his 
wife and John his son. — See Blomefield's Norfolk, vol. 
x. p. 253. 

His second son, Thomas Palgrave, founded the 
Thuxton branch of the Palgrave family. They became 
very numerous, and matched with the Guntons. 
Patricks, Sefoules, Pigeons, Plewes, Lanes, Tyrrells, 
Pearsons, and other Norfolk families of repute.* 

* A Pedigree of the Palgraves of Thuxton is annexed. 
E 2 


There are monuments and sepulchral brasses in 
Thuxton church to the memory of the Palgraves. 

Two brasses with the following inscriptions, pre- 
viously in Thuxton church, but which had been rived 
from the stone, were purchased some years ago by 
Mr. Thomas Balls of Kirtley, and by him restored : — 

" Mary Seffowle bvryed in this place, 
Second wife to Gregory Pagrave was, 
Of hir he have children too sones only, 
The eldest named Robt y* other Gregory ; 
Hirsovle Christ toke to his endless mercy 
The xj lh of June M.D. eight and seventy." 

Another brass has this inscription : — 

u The bodie buried in this Grave 

" Was third wife of Gregory Pagrave 

" Katherine Pigeon was her first name 

" Rich in faythe and honest fame 

u Who's Vertues and Works briefly to declare 

" Many poore folks did fele what they were 

" This life she ended the fiftenth of July 

" The yere of Grace M.D. six and nyenty 

" Her sovle rest in joy by God's fre mercy." 

Mary Palgrave of Letheringset, spinster, descended 
from the North wood -Barningham family (see that 
Pedigree), by her will, proved 27th August, 1723, de- 
vised her several Manors in Hackford, Whitwell, and 
Reepham, and elsewhere in Norfolk, and the advow- 
sons of Hackford and Whitwell, to James Hunt of 


Thornham in Norfolk, and his heirs ; and her estates 
at Letheringset and Holt to the right heirs of Charles 
Worsley, then late of Salhouse in Norfolk, Clerk. 
She mentions her cousin Elizabeth, daughter of 
Elizabeth Winspear, and grandchild of Sir Augustine 
Palgrave, Bart., deceased, and to her she gave pictures 
of Sir William de Grey and his Lady; she gave all 
her books, &c, to William, son of the Rev. John 
Cory (*) of Landbeach in Cambridgeshire, and to the 
Rev. Palgrave Cory of the city of Norwich, and to 
the former a picture of her grandfather Sadler. She 
bequeathed to the said James Hunt three pictures of 
the Hunts, and all the rest of her pictures and the 
hangings in her parlour to the right heirs of the said 
Charles Worsley. She bequeathed a legacy of ^20 
to Sir Richard Palgrave, Bart., and many legacies to 
others, and to her cousin Nicholas Playford of North 
Repps ;£io and a ring with the Playford coat of arms.

*J 5^jQ ^,' hundred, viz., Pulham St Mary Magdalen, 
commonly called Pulham Market, and Pul- 
ham St. Mary the Virgin, usually called Pulham Mary. 

In 1558 Thomas, son of Thomas Palgrave of 
Pulham Market, married Christian, daughter of Thomas 
Sayer,(*) a considerable landed proprietor ; and in 1681 
their descendants, Thomas Sayer, Justice of the Peace, 
and William Palgrave, were returned as lords of the 

In the church of St Mary Magdalen there are 
several monuments to the memory of the Palgraves, 
the oldest of which is a gravestone, with shield of 
arms sculptured, in memory of Thomas Palgrave, who 
died in 1638. A plate of these arms is here given. 
There are, or were, hatchments of Palgrave, Howman

between three talbot's heads erased or.)* 

Thomas Palgrave, of the city of Norwich and of 
Pulham Market, filled the office of Sheriff of that city 
in 1699, and was returned as one of her Members 
of Parliament in 1 703 ; was re-elected in 1 704, and 
again in 1707. He died 7th August, 1726, in his 
eighty-fifth year, and was buried in the parish church 
of Pulham, where there is an inscription to his memory, 
which records that "he gave ^100 to a Charity School 
" in the Parish of St. Peters Mancroft in Norwich 
" (where he was born) towards the education of poor 
"children according to the Liturgy of the Church of 
" England." ( 3 ) 

He married Mary, daughter of Robert Howard of 
Norwich, and by her had three daughters, who became 
his coheirs. Elizabeth the eldest married, first, Richard 
Lubbock, an alderman of NorwUfc, who died when 
filling the office of Mayor in 171 7; and, secondly, 
Richard Bacon of Norwich ; Margaret, the second 
daughter, married Edward Howman of Norwich, M.D.,

D.D., of Trinity College, Cambridge, rector of Dickie- 
burgh in Norfolk. She died in 1730, and in the chancel 
of Dickleburgh parish church there is a highly laudatory 
epitaph, in Latin, to her memory, composed by her 
husband, who died 16th October, 1731, aged fifty. He 
was a native of Wem in Shropshire, and, according to 
her tomb, bore a bend between two cotises engrailed. 
William Palgrave of Ipswich was educated at Caius 
College, Cambridge, and practised as a physician at 
Ipswich, where he died in 1742, aged forty-nine. By 
his will he settled estates at Pulham, Dickleburgh, 
and elsewhere, on his sons ; and as to one settlement 
he included in the remainder his brother-in-law the 
Rev. Francis Burton. His capital messuage at 
Ipswich he devised to his wife. 

There is a monument to his memory on the wall 
of the north aisle in Pulham church, with the arms of 
Palgrave and the following inscription : — " H. S. E. 
" Gulielmus Palgrave, M.D., de Gippovico in Comitatu 
" Suffolciensi. Gulielmi Palgrave, de fwc Pago Generosi

Catherine Palgrave of Needham Market (born Jay) 
and widow of Austin Palgrave, by her will, proved 21st 
August, 1764, desired to be buried in the church of 
Pulham St. Mary Magdalen near her late husband. She 
gave an estate in Needham to Anne her daughter 
absolutely, she paying her sister Catherine, ( 6 ) the wife of 
the Rev. John Manclarke of Great Yarmouth, ;£ioo; 
all the residue she gave to her son William Palgrave 
of Needham Market (who died s. p.), and to her said 
two daughters except " one guinea," which she gave to 
her son Thomas Palgrave, if he should be living at 
her decease.* 

Another descendant of the Pulham family was the 
Rev. William Palgrave. He was a Fellow of Pem- 
broke College, Cambridge. In 1766 he was instituted 
to the Rectory of Palgrave, which had long been the 
object of his desire, his ambition having been to 
call himself Palgrave of Palgrave. He was also 
Rector of Thrandeston in Suffolk, both livings being 
then in the gift of the Cornwallis family, who held 
large possessions in Suffolk, which ultimately passed by 

• This is an example of " cutting off with a shilling," or guinea, the legal 
reason being to prove that the relative so cut off was not forgotten, for by 
the Roman law a will could be set aside if the testator passed over one of 
his offspring without mention. 


purchase to the Kerrisons. When at Cambridge he 
enjoyed the friendship of Gray ; and in Mason's Life 
of the Poet will be found some letters written by him 
to Mr. Palgrave in a style of easy friendship and 
openness, which indicate the esteem in which he 
held him. 

Gray addressed a letter to Mr. Palgrave in 1758, 
when the latter was paying a visit to Scotland, and 
again in 1765, when he was making a tour in France 
and Italy. ( 6 ) The literary associations of Mr. Palgrave 
were not confined to the Poet Gray at the University of 
Cambridge, for Gibbon, in the Autobiography (published 
by Lord Sheffield after Gibbons death) describing his 
life in England between 1765 and 1770, during "the 
"winter months in London," mentions that "a weekly 
" convivial meeting was established by myself and other 
" travellers, under the name of the Roman Club." A 
note to this states that — 

" The Members were Lord Mountstuart (now Marquis 
4 * of Bute), Colonel Edmonstone, W. Weddal, Rev d . M r . 
14 Palgrave, Earl of Berkley, Godfrey Clarke (Member 
44 for Derbyshire), Holroyd (Lord Sheffield), Major 
41 Ridley, Thomas Charles Bigge, Sir William Guise, 
44 Sir John Aubrey, the late Earl of Abingdon, Hon. 
44 Peregrine Bertie, Rev d . M r . Cleaver, Hon. John 


" Darner, Hon. George Darner (late Earl of Dor- 
" chester), Sir Thomas Gascoygne, Sir John Hort, and 
"E. Gibbon." 

This note is supposed to be by Gibbon, and was 
probably completed by Lord Sheffield after 1796, the 
date of the Marquisate of Bute. 

The rector of Palgrave was wry-necked. Riding one 
day with his brother, who had an impediment in his 
speech, his horse ran away with him and ultimately 
threw him. Some rustics, to whom the Rector's person 
was unknown, found him stunned and speechless. 
Supposing the above-mentioned defect to be the result 
of the accident, they endeavoured to force the head 
straight on the shoulders, when the brother rode up 
and with much sputtering and difficulty made them 
understand that "the gentleman was born so." 

He died at Brighton, 5th November, 1799, aged 
sixty-four, " Amidst/ ' says the Ipswich ^ourna/ f "a 
"concurrence of his sorrowing parishioners, who on 
" the death of their worthy rector lamented, in common 
"with all who knew him, the loss of a man in whom 
"every benevolent, social, and amiable quality of the 
"heart that could endear him to his fellow creatures 
"were combined." 

By his will he appointed Thomas Maynard of Hoxne 


Hall, Suffolk, executor, and directed him to dispose 
of all the lands which testator had purchased in Pal- 
grave. All his other lands he devised to his cousin, 
the Rev. Marmaduke Lawson, rector of Sproatley in 
Yorkshire. He gave to the Rev. Joseph Turner, 
Dean of Norwich, portraits of his mother and Mrs. 
Jessop. To Mrs. Wilkinson, late Dorothy Lawson, 
and widow of Andrew Wilkinson, Esq., of Borough 
Bridge in Yorkshire, pictures of his brother and himself. 
To the Rev. John Dixon, Rector of Tuddington, his 
MSS., and to Mrs. Marmaduke an enamel of his 
father by Zincke. 

The Rev. Marmaduke Lawson, the brother of Mrs. 
Wilkinson, mentioned in the will, married Barbara 
Isabella, daughter of John Wilkinson of the Temple, 
who was brother of the Rev. James Wilkinson, Vicar 
of Sheffield, and of Borough Bridge Hall. 

They had a son, Marmaduke, who, dying in 1823, 
H the Wilkinson estates devolved on his next brother." 
It is probable therefore that Mrs. Wilkinson (Dorothy 
Lawson) left no children, and that the Palgrave portraits 
art; now at one of Mr. Lawson s seats.*

The family of Sayer, or Sayers. had been resident at Pulham for many 
generations previous to their connection with the Palgrave family. 

John Sayer of Pulham St. Mary the Virgin died there in 1583, in the 
90th year of his age. 

They bore, according to Blomefield, Gu., a chev. irm. 
between three seamews ppr. Among other posses- 
sions, they were lords of the manor of Pulham as were 
afterwards the Palgraves. The services rendered by 
the tenants in this manor were very remarkable. One 
held his lands by carnage, which service was performed 
by blowing a horn before the commencement of pro- 
ceedings in the lord's court, for which the lord had 
to pay him fourpence and give him a dinner. He had the liberty of keeping 
hounds, and following game anywhere within the manor. Another tenant 
held seven acres of land by being the lord's hangman. All other services 
were remitted, but whenever a thief was hanged in the manor, he was 
obliged to perform this hateful office by reason of his tenure. 

A family of the name of Sayer flourished at Great Yarmouth in the 


seventeenth century, but ultimately added a final s 9 making the name 

It became distinguished in the literary world by Dr. Frank Sayers, the 
German scholar and poet, and by James Sayers, the caricaturist. 

They bore the same arms as Sayer of Pulham.

Great Yarmouth. He was High Sheriff of Norfolk in 1740, and died in 
1794, aged 86. His daughter married James Burkin Burroughes, Esq., of 
Burlingham, and took the Hoveton estates into that family.

Catherine, daughter and eventually sole heir of Austin Palgrave of 
Pulham, by Catherine Jay his wife, was born in 1734, and married in 
1 76 1 the Reverend John Manclarke, Incumbent of Great Yarmouth. 



The name of Manclarke was of long continuance at Great Yarmouth,, 
for Henry Manclarke was in 1627 admitted a Freeman on producing 
his father s Burgess Letter. 

They were shipowners and merchants. Coleman Manclark filled the office 
of Mayor in 1770, and died in 1790, aged 76. 

His youngest brother was the above-named Rev. John Manclarke, who 
succeeded Dr. Butler, Bishop of Oxford, in the incumbency of Great 
Yarmouth in 1 751, and retained it till his death. By the above marriage 
he left two sons, Thomas, who was Registrar of the Yarmouth Admiralty 
Court, and Austin Palgrave Manclarke, . who married in 1793 Catherine 
Cook, widow, of Rockland, and had two sons, Rev. William Palgrave 
Manthorpe of Pulham, who married at Blofield Susan daughter of 
Lieutenant Popplewell, R.N., and Mary Ann his wife, daughter of 
William Taylor, Esq., of Great Yarmouth ; and Richard Beatniffe Man- 
thorpe. The latter died in 1874, aged 77, leaving a son, the Rev. 
Richard Palgrave Manthorpe, now Vicar of St. James', Barrow-in-Furness.

Gray also addressed some of his letters to another Suffolk Rector, the 
Rev. Norton Nicholls of Lound, at whose picturesque seat at Blundeston, 
near Great Yarmouth, he was a frequent visitor, and where his favourite 
resorts are still pointed out. Blundeston was the seat of the late Charles 
Steward, Esq., and is now the residence of Mrs. Johnson.

HE name of Palgrave existed in Great 
Yarmouth early in the seventeenth century, 
Jeremy Palgrave of Great Yarmouth was 
a son of John Palgrave of Pulham St. Mary 
the Virgin and afterwards of Panxworth, co. Norfolk. 
He was baptised at Ranworth in 1603, and settled 
in Great Yarmouth, where he was thrice married 
and where he died in 1672. Ruth his daughter 
married Roger Godsale, but nothing more is known 
of any descendant. ( l ) — See Pedigree. 

The branch which flourished at Great Yarmouth in 
the last century descended from the Palgraves of 
Pulham. Thomas Palgrave, who, as already stated, 
married Christian Sayer, had issue William Palgrave 
of Pulham St. Mary Magdalen, who married Elizabeth 
Randoll. They were the parents of Robert Palgrave {*) 
of Pulham St. Mary the Virgin, who died in 1659, 


leaving a son, William Palgrave, who, having taken 
Holy Orders, was presented to the Rectory of Burgh 
near Woodbridge in Suffolk, then in the gift of the 
family of Rous of H'enham, now represented by the 
Earl of Stradbroke. 

The Rector of Burgh, died in 1701, leaving an 
elder son, Robert Palgrave, who settled at Great 
Yarmouth and became the founder of the Coltishall 
family. 'I 

Hfe married, first, Hannah, daughter of John Bacon ( 8 ) 
of Great Yarmouth, who died in 1727; and, secondly, 
Ann/. widow of Robert Dehrtison of Great Yarmouth. ( 4 ) 
He died in 1737, and was the first of his family 
buried at Great Yarmouth. 

Byi his first marriage he had two sons, Thomas 
and William. 

Thomas Palgrave served an apprenticeship at sea, 
during which he displayed so much courage and ability 
that* he was selected for. the command of a privateer 
then" fitting -out at Great Yarmouth. His first ex- 
pedition was unsuccessful, for meeting with a French 
vessel of superior size and armament he was compelled 
to surrender! After being detained for some time 
a prisoner fei Fraiice, he obtained his discharge, and 
was then employed by those who knew his ability to 


superintend the building of another privateer, of 
which when completed he obtained the command. 
In this ship, however, he was again unsuccessful ; 
being compelled to yield to superior force. 

Notwithstanding these mishaps he persevered, and 
having obtained the command of a third privateer, he 
made amends for former failures by capturing many 
rich prizes, and was enabled to retire with a sufficient 
fortune. He settled in London, where he was much 
esteemed and respected ; became one of the Elder 
Brethren of the Trinity House, and a Director of 
Greenwich Hospital. He was regarded as an authority 
on all naval matters, and, it is said, was consulted by 
Lord Sandwich when First Lord of the Admiralty. 

Captain Palgrave's gold-headed stick and signet are 
still preserved in the family : both engraved with the 
arms of Palgrave. Among other family relics is a gold 
ring, inscribed, " The Gift of the Duke of Grafton." This 
ring is now in the possession of Thomas Palgrave, Esq., 
of Bryn-y-gynod, LlansaintfTraed. It is supposed to have 
been presented to Captain Palgrave by Charles, second 
Duke of Grafton, who died in 1757, aged seventy-eight. 

Among other peculiarities, the old sailor was accus- 
tomed to keep in his bed-room, wherever he happened 
to be, a rope' ladder coiled up under his bed, by which 


he could lower himself from the window in case of fire, 
and also a sword-stick containing a splendid rapier, 
with which to defend himself against thieves. 

He purchased an estate at Coltishall in Norfolk, 
and resided in the Manor-house there, where he died 
in 1775, and was the first of his family buried at 

William Palgrave, the second son of Robert Palgrave, 
was a merchant at Great Yarmouth, and surviving his 
brother died unmarried in 1780, aged sixty-two, and 
was buried at Coltishall. 

Of the daughters of Robert Palgrave, Margaretta, the 
youngest, married John^ Miles ( 6 ) of Burgh Castle, Suffolk. 

Thomas and William Palgrave, the two brothers, 
carried . on business in partnership at Coltishall and 
Great Yarmouth, as Corn Merchants, and used an 
office seal which is still in the possession of Mr. Thomas 
Palgrave of Bryn-y-gynog, of which an engraving is 
here given. 

Thomas Palgrave married Mary, daughter of Thomas 
Manning {*) of Great Yarmouth in 1737, and by her left 


an only surviving son, William Palgrave, who was born 

in I745-*C) 

Under the will of his uncle, William Palgrave, he 

succeeded to all the estates of the latter both at Coltis- 
hall and Great Yarmouth, and also had bequeathed to 
him all his uncle's personal estate, and he for many 
years made the Manor-house at Coltishall his residence. 
He also carried on an extensive business as a Ship- 
owner and Corn Merchant at Great Yarmouth, and 
was selected to attend upon the minister, Mr. Pitt, in 
conference on the subject of the trade of the town. 

He took an active part in local politics and municipal 
affairs. He was a strong adherent of the Whig party 
at a time when Radicals and Liberals were unknown by 
those names, and he was a warm supporter of Thomas 
William Coke of Holkham (afterwards Earl of Leicester) 
in his frequent contests for the representation of Norfolk 
in Parliament, when that county was undivided, and when 
freeholders alone were entitled to vote. Mr. Palgrave 
was a frequent guest at the annual Holkham Sheep 
Shearing, ( 8 ) to which all the celebrated agriculturists 

• When a child, the only one of a large family who survived infancy, he 
was sent to Pulham to be nursed, a circumstance which is confirmatory of 
the traditional connection of the Yarmouth family of Palgrave with that 
place. It is a singular fact that the lady he married was also the only one 
of ten children who lived to maturity. 



of this and other counties were usually invited. He 
entered the Yarmouth Corporation in 1774, and filled 
the office of Mayor in 1782 and again in 1805. So 
popular was he that on one occasion the freemen pro- 
posed to nominate him as a candidate for the repre- 
sentation of the town in Parliament, an honour which 
he declined. He married 16th April, 1771, Elizabeth, 
only surviving child of Robert Thirkettle ( 9 ) of Flegg 
Burgh, Norfolk, by Elizabeth his wife, daughter of 
Samuel Tolver. Mrs. Palgrave died 19th October, 
1805, aged fifty-seven, and was buried at Coltishall. 
Mr. Palgrave died at the Manor House there on 9th 
November, 1822, aged seventy-seven, and was buried 
in Coltishall church. ( 10 ) 

The annexed view of this church is from a private 
plate engraved by the late Mrs. Dawson Turner. The 
north-east view of the same is drawn and engraved 
by Winter. 

The annexed portrait of William Palgrave (private 
plate) was engraved by the late Mrs. Dawson Turner 
from a painting commenced by Sir Thomas Lawrence 
and finished by Lane in 1816, now in the possession 
of Mr. Thomas Palgrave of Bryn-y-gynod. 

By the above marriage he left three sons, viz. — 

1. William, born 10th September, 1771, of whom 


2. Thomas, born 26th June, 1779; married Ann 
Hasting ; and died on the 3rd December, 1859, s.p. 

3. Robert, born 12th July, 1780; ob. 2nd November, 
1804, unmarried. 

And six daughters, whose numerous descendants down 
to the present generation will be found presently. 

Robert Palgrave, the third and youngest son of 
William Palgrave, early evinced a taste for learning, 
and was sent to the University of Cambridge, where 
he obtained the Gold Classical Medal, which is now in 
the possession of Mr. Simpson of Norwich. At college 
he formed a friendship with Thomas Denman, after- 
wards Solicitor General to Queen Caroline, and Lord 
Chief Justice of England, created Lord Denman in 1834. 

For some youthful indiscretion they were, as an im- 
position, ordered to repeat three hundred verses from 
memory. In order to lighten the burden they resorted 
to the following expedient. Denman went up at the 
appointed time and repeated one hundred and fifty 
verses, when Palgrave stepped forward and repeated the 
remaining hundred and fifty. " Oh ! " says the impositor, 
44 1 see how it is ; but you shall not escape so easily 
" another time." 

Having accepted the appointment of Registrar of the 
High Court of Admiralty at Gibraltar, he died there 
of Yellow Fever in 1 804.

£otta to Part I©. 

(i) P. 45. Palgrave of Yarmouth. 

The name of Palgrave does not appear in any Yarmouth municipal record, 
except that we find, in 1618, John Palgrave was in possession of part of the 
site of the then dissolved convent of the Grey Friars at Great Yarmouth. 
Some account of this Franciscan Priory will be found in the Appendix 
to Manship's History of Great Yarmouth. A small portion of the cloister, 
now occupied as a dwelling, alone exists, and is represented in the annexed 

In 1692, when it was expected that King William III. would land in 
Great Yarmouth on his return from an expedition to the Continent, a Mr. 
Palgrave of that day was sent express from Yarmouth to Sir Thomas Allin, 
a* Somerleyton, to beg the loan of his coach and horses for the accommo- 
dation of His Majesty. The King landed and was entertained at the house 
of Mr. Bailiff Robins on the South Quay. 


(2) P. 45. Robert Palgrave. 

Elizabeth Palgrave of Pulham, spinster, by her will, proved 20th June, 
17 1 5, gave her nephew Robert Palgrave of Great Yarmouth a legacy of 
^30 ; and to her two neices Elizabeth and Sarah, the two daughters of her 
then late brother, the Rev. William Palgrave, Rector of Burgh in Suffolk, 
,£30 each, to be paid in the church porch of the parish of Pulham St. 
Mary Magdalen. 

It was formerly the custom to appoint a precise place where bonds and 
other payments were to be made, and the church porch or market cross 
was usually selected. 

(3) P. 46. Bacon. 

John Bacon, by his will proved 7th May, 1728, devised his tenements 
in Great Yarmouth to Richard and John his sons, and bequeathed the 
residue of his personal estate to his four daughters, of whom Hannah, 
the wife of Robert Palgrave, was one. 

(4) P. 46. DENNISON. 

Robert Dennison of Great Yarmouth, gentleman, by his will proved 
4th June, 1728, devised to Anne his loving wife all his real estate absolutely, 
and bequeathed to her all his personal estate, and made her sole executrix ; 
and appointed Edmund Lock of Norwich and John Colby of Great 
Yarmouth, supervisors. 

(5) P. 48. Miles. 

Sarah, daughter of John Miles by Margaretta (Palgrave) his wife, 
married Samuel Tolver of Great Yarmouth, by which means and sub- 
sequently, as will be seen, by the marriage of her nephew William Palgrave 
with Elizabeth Thirkettle, the Palgraves became connected with the Tolvers, 
and through them with many Yarmouth families ; among others, the 
Dowsons, Prestons, and Pagets.

(6) P. 48. Manning. 

" I had in 1816," says a memorandum in pencil on 
a MS. account of the Yarmouth family of Palgrave, 
" a small oval-shaped box inscribed James Manning, an 
old family relic. It stood on the chimney-piece in my 
lodgings at Yarmouth. It disappeared unaccountably." 
The Mannings of Yarmouth bore gu. a cross patonee 
between four trefoils or. 
John Manning of Great Yarmouth, Merchant, by his will dated in 1745, 
gave to the Rev. Ralph Milner, /50, to his cousin Henry Gooch of Earsham, 
Norfolk, £$o 9 to his cousin Thomas Manning, j£io, to Elizabeth, widow of 
John Palmer, /8 a year, to his brother William, ^500. Residue to brother 
Thomas Manning. 

(7) 1\ 49. Captain Thomas Palgrave. 

Captain Thomas Palgrave purchased a messuage, then and still called the 
" Manor House," an ancient tenement called " Postills," and an estate of 
about >"0 acres of land at Coltishall, a parish and small town of some an- 
tiquity on the high road between Norwich and North Walsham. in the hundred 
of South Krptngham, Norfolk. This estate was then held, as it still is, of 
"the Provost and Scholars of the King's College of Blessed Mary and 
" St, Nicholas of Cambridge,* and had been acquired by that college in the 
eighteenth year of King Edward I\\ The rent, invariably reserved to the 
college on every renewal of the lease, was 27** 4/. yearly on the 10th 
iVtober, with one quarter v at and after the customary measure theretofore 
used in Cambridge of sixty-seven pints to the busheP of "good and mer- 

* chantahle parky wheat, sweet, clean, and well dressed, to be approved by 

* the Colkye Raker, and one and~a~half quarters of good and merchantable 

* nvafe of barley, well dried and cleaned, approved by the CoDe$e Brewer.* 

It was afc>o AH^itioned that the tenant should collect and pay over to 
the cvtftoj^ all the customary rents, as well of the manor of Cotezshafl 
as of their manor of Le$$an£hanv of which they w*re kwds. a?»d therefore 
the tenant of their Co&shaU estate was ;»^a£y ca3oi depacy^ord. and 


for this service the provost and scholars covenanted to allow the tenant 
£4. 4s. T%d. "at such time and place as he should make account and 
" due payment of all the yearly rents of both the said manors." 

The Lease was renewable by custom but not of right, at the expiration 
of every twenty years, on payment of an agreed fine. 

The Coltishall estate was in 1826 purchased of William Palgrave, Esq., 
the Collector, by William Danby Palmer, Esq., of Great Yarmouth, who 
died in 1828, aged 77, and who by will left it to his grandson, Robert Palmer 
Kemp, Esq., who resided at the Manor House until his death in 1873, 
leaving the property by will to his great-nephew, George William Danby 
Palmer, Esq., who now holds the same at a rack-rent, the college having 
declined to grant a renewal of the last lease. 

(8) P. 49. Holkham Sheep-Shearing. 

The Earl of Albemarle, in his u Fifty Years of my Life," says, " In 1820, 
'* I accompanied the Duke of Sussex for a second time to Holkham. The 
"occasion was the famous Annual Sheep-shearing. There were assembled 
"men from all parts of Europe to witness the practical working of a system 
" of husbandry of which Mr. Coke was considered the founder. We sat 
" down each day upwards of five hundred to dinner in the state apartments. 
u There were plenty of speeches, principally on the science of agriculture. 
"The dinner, an early one, was followed by a supper for the guests who 
" remained in the house. The Sheep-shearing lasted till the 6th of June." 

(9) P. 50. THIRKETTLE. 

Through this marriage the Palgraves again became connected with the 
Yarmouth families of Tolver and Paget. — See p. 63. 

This name is of Danish origin. Thurketel was employed by King Canute, 
and commanded the Danes at Gorleston ; and under the orthography of 
Thurkylet, Thirtell, and down to Kettle, has prevailed in Yarmouth and 
its neighbourhood from an early period, but is now extinct. 



Samuel Tolver, the father of Mrs. Thirkettle, bore, 
Arg., a cross gu. between four oak leaves, vert. 
Thirkettle of Flegg Burgh bore, Gu. a maunch 
arg., ensigned with a fleur de lis of the first and a 
chief of the second. 

<io) P. so. William Palgrave of Coltishall. 

He purchased in 1799 the "Quay Mill," which stood on the present site 
of Lacon's Stores and. of Millmount House, which latter was for many 
years occupied by Edmund Preston, Esq. 

He also occupied as a residence the house, No. 7, on the Hall Quay, 
the property of the Love family, now converted into shops.

|ILLIAM PALGRAVE, the eldest son of 
William Palgrave, of Coltishall, and Eliza- 
beth (Thirkettle) his wife, was born on 
the ioth of September, 1771. 
The conflict in which this country became engaged 
with revolutionary France towards the close of the 
last century, led to the formation of Corps of Volunteers, 
of all arms, throughout the kingdom ; and in 1 794 
some troops of mounted yeomanry were raised in 
Norfolk, so called as being principally composed of 
farmers finding their own horses. 

This spirit of resistance to threats of invasion reached 
the town of Great Yarmouth, where a troop of 
"Yarmouth Gentlemen of Yeomanry" was formed, 
in which, on the 20th June, 1798, young Palgrave 
was commissioned by the Duke of Portland, as 

K 2 


Lieutenant; and in the gay uniform of his corps the 
young officer forthwith had a likeness taken, which 
is now in the possession of his eldest surviving son, 
Thomas Palgrave, Esq., of Bryn-y-gynog, and has 
been engraved expressly for this work by Mr. 
Joseph Brown. He is represented in the large 
white cravat then recently introduced by George, 
Prince of Wales. 

On the 1 8th of October, 1798, Mr. Palgrave was 
married at St. Paul's, Covent Garden, to Elizabeth, 
only daughter of Samuel Barker, Esq., of Great Yar- 
mouth. (*) They resided in George Street until 1 808. 
Mr. Barker had then purchased an old house 
on the South Quay, Great Yarmouth, which had 
previously been a tavern called the Three Crattcs, but 
which had been more recently converted into a bank- 
ing house, in which Messrs. Gurneys and Co., of 
Norwich, commenced their business at Yarmouth in 
1775. This old building Mr. Barker demolished, and 
on its site erected a spacious mansion, which became 
the family residence of Mr. Palgrave until he re- 
moved from Yarmouth in 1826. The peculiarly toned 
white bricks with which this house was erected were 
made on the Holkham estate, and were a present 
from Thomas William Coke, Esq., of Holkham, after- 


wards Earl of Leicester, with whom the Palgraves, 
father and son, had been on friendly terms.* 

At the age of thirty-four Mr. Palgr&ve was appointed 
to the Collectorship of Customs at the Port of Great 
Yarmouth. Offices of this kind, then of considerable 
emolument, were at that time frequently obtained 
through political influence and without any previous 
experience in the service. It was, however, univer- 
sally admitted that Mr. Palgrave discharged his 
important duties with marked ability, and not only 
to the satisfaction of all with whom he had any 
official intercourse, but with the approbation of the 
heads of his department, then called "Commissioners 
of Customs," by whom Mr. Palgrave was usually 
selected to enquire and report upon irregularities 
occurring at any out-port in England, and on other 
official matters. 

In 1824 he held an important Inquiry at Norwich, 
and for his services on that occasion was presented 
with a silver salver of the value of two hundred 

* When the Duke of Sussex was at Holkham, a visit to Yarmouth was 
projected, and preparations were made at Mr. Palgrave's house for his 
reception. Great was the disappointment when Mr. Coke, Admiral Digby, 
and Lord Anson arrived without His Royal Highness, who was detained 
by an attack of gout 


guineas (now in the possession of Thomas Palgrave, 
Esq.), inscribed as follows : — 

" Presented to William Palgrave, Esq., Collector of 
" Customs at the Port of Great Yarmouth, by the Mer- 
chants and Manufacturers of the City of Norwich, to 
" express their sense of his official conduct in regulating 
" the drawback granted to them by Government on 
"the Repeal of the Duties on Silk in April and May 
" 1824, on which occasion he united the most considerate 
"regard for the convenience of the Trade with the 
" most vigilant attention to the interests of the State." * 

* When George IV. was returning from Scotland the royal yacht anchored 
unexpectedly in Yarmouth Roads on the 31st January, 1822. The then 
Mayor (John Danby Palmer, Esq.) was advised that as a mark of respect 
he ought to go on board. Accordingly, accompanied by the Town Clerk 
and some members of the Corporation and other friends, a boat was launched 
from the beach ; but as she approached the royal yacht, the Mayor's boat, 
like all others, was warned off. Captain Claxton, R.N., who was with his 
worship, in vain shouted " The Mayor ! the Mayor ! " but no notice was 
taken from the yacht except by repeated calls for " The Collector ! the 
Collector ! " Teste me ipso. No Collector was however there ; and after 
waiting a short time the anchor was weighed and the yacht proceeded. The 
mystery was solved by the next post, which brought an official letter to the 
Collector of Customs, giving him notice that it was intended to anchor in 
Yarmouth Roads, and requesting him to be prepared with a supply of milk 
and fresh provisions. Alas ! there were no telegrams in those days ! 

On another occasion, the services of Mr. Palgrave were required by 
royalty. When the Duke of Clarence, afterwards William IV., and his 
Duchess, afterwards Queen Adelaide, landed at Yarmouth, they went to 
the Angel Hotel in the Market Place, and in the evening the Collector of 
Customs was sent for, and was received by the Duchess (the Duke being 


He was particularly fond of music, and was himself 
a skilful player on the violoncello. It was through his 
exertions that a musical society was established at Great 
Yarmouth in 1814, when a concert-room was erected at 
the rear of the Town House on the South Quay, which 
room was afterwards and still is used as a Public Library. 
This society flourished so long as Mr. Palgrave resided 
in Great Yarmouth and had the management of it, but 
when he left the town it fell away. 

Mr. Palgrave, like his father, entered the Yarmouth 
Corporation, and, after filling the subordinate offices, 
was elected Mayor in 18 14, after the "Inquest" had 
"laid" from Monday morning till Wednesday afternoon 
before they could agree on their verdict. This delay 
arose from no dislike to Mr. Palgrave, who was uni- 
versally popular, but in consequence of a difference 
which then existed in the Corporation as to the nomi- 
nating of Commoners. 

The mode of electing a Mayor of Great Yarmouth 
was so peculiar that some account of it may not be 
unacceptable here. It was in this wise. Annually 
on the anniversary of " the Decollation of St. John 

disabled by fatigue) and was informed that the royal party were short of 
money and required some assistance to reach London, which was of course 
readily supplied.

devise was on such occasions resorted to to mitigate the 
stringency of the custody. 

To meet the difficulties of a protracted "lay" in 1813, 
the Inquest made a double return, naming Mr. Palgrave 
and Mr. Jacob Preston; but this verdict could not be 
received, and they were shut up again, and eventually 
nine of the twelve agreed to elect Mr. Preston. 

When a sufficient number of Common Councilmen 
were not found to form an Inquest, the Mayor was 
accustomed to nominate " Commoners " from the Free- 
men to make up the number. This was supposed to 
give the Mayor an undue influence in the choice of a 
successor, and was therefore resisted by Mr. Palgrave 
and others. 

In 1826 Mr. Palgrave was promoted to the Collector- 
ship at Dublin, then esteemed one of the prizes in the 
service, and he held this appointment until his death, 
which occurred at Dublin on the nth of January, 1838, 
being then in his sixty-eighth year. He was buried in 
the Mount Jerome Cemetery at St. Harold's Cross, 

His widow removed to Liverpool, where she died 
on the 23rd of March, 1863, aged eighty-three, and was 
buried in the family vault at Mount Jerome Cemetery, 


There is a portrait of Mr. Palgrave (the Collector) 
by Samuel Lane, and also a portrait of Mrs. Palgrave 
by J. P. Davis, both of which are in the possession 
of Thomas Palgrave, Esq., of Bryn-y-gynog.

(1) P. 68. Barker. 

Samuel Barker, the father of Mrs. Palgrave, was descended from a 
family of that name long resident at Lowestoft. In 1643 Sir Edward 
Barker was, with others, taken prisoner by Oliver Cromwell at Low- 
estoft, and carried to his head-quarters at Somerleyton Hall in Suffolk. 

John Barker, fishing merchant at Lowestoft, was a sufferer by the great 
fire which happened there in 1644. 

Samuel Barker, an eminent merchant and " a great friend of the poor " 
at Lowestoft, married Margaret Arnold, of an old Lowestoft family, by 
whom he had two sons, John and Samuel. The former was one of the 
Elder Brethren of the Trinity House and a Director of Greenwich Hospital. 
He acquired a considerable fortune, and died in London in 1787, aged 8o» 
and was buried with much funereal pomp at Lowestoft in a mausoleum in 
the churchyard there, for the erection of which he had bequeathed jCs°° and 
also ;£iooo, the interest of which was to be applied in keeping the same in 
repair, an obligation which is still observed. For many years previous to 
his death, he distributed annually ,£250 among poor and infirm sailors, their 
widows and children. There is a portrait of him painted by John Jones (but 
erroneously ascribed to Sir Joshua Reynolds) which represents the old 
gentleman attired in black velvet, seated at a table on which are maps and 
papers ; and in the background is seen the entrance to a harbour. 

This picture was engraved at the expense, it is said, of 500 guineas, and a 


limited number of impressions only were taken before the plate was destroyed, 
so that the prints have become extremely rare. 

The picture itself was discovered in London many years ago by Mr. John 
Barker, Mrs. Palgrave's brother, and by him brought to his house at 
Norwich, where it continued until his death in 1855 > anc * it remained the 
property of his widow, until it was purchased by Mr. Charles George 
Palgrave, and it now hangs in the hall of Shaddingfield Lodge, Great 

John Barker of Lowestoft had an only sister Elizabeth, who married 
Richard Church. They had a son, John Barker Church, of whose extra- 
ordinary career, both in this country and in North America (where he had 
gone before the breaking out of the War of Independence) a full account 
has been published. 

Church bore, Gu. a fesse or y in chief three sinister 
gauntlets ppr. 

Samuel Barker, the other son of Samuel Barker of 
Lowestoft, settled in Great Yarmouth as a merchant 
and shipowner, and filled the office of Mayor in 1800, 
and in that capacity had the honor of entertaining 
Lord Nelson on his landing at Great Yarmouth 
after the victory of Aboukir. There the hero met 
the Mayor's daughter, and in a letter to Mr. Barker in the following year, he 
says, " I beg my respects to Mrs. Palgrave." 

After the Battle of Copenhagen, when Nelson's flag was flying on board 
the 67. George in Koige Bay, he addressed the following letter to 
Mr. Barker. 

" St. George, Koige Bay, April 27th, 1801. 
" My dear Sir, 

" I feel truly sensible of your kind congratulations on the 
success of His Majesty's arms ; the spirit and zeal of the Navy, I never saw 
higher than in this fleet, and if England is true to herself she may bid 
defiance to Europe. The French have always in ridicule called us a nation 
of shopkeepers, so I hope we shall always remain, and like other shopkeepers, 
if our goods are better than those of any other country, and we can afford to 
sell them cheaper, we may depend upon our shop being well resorted to. If 
I land at Yarmouth, I shall most assuredly pay my personal respects to you, 
not only as a Gentleman who has shewn me great civilities, but also as the 
Chief Magistrate of a borough of which I have the honour to be a freeman. 


I beg you will have the goodness to present my best respects and good 

wishes to every individual of the corporate body, and believe me, my dear 

sir, your truly obliged n 


" Samuel Barker, Esq., 

" Mayor of Great Yarmouth, Norfolk." 

In July following Nelson was compelled on account of his health to resign 
his command, and again landed at Great Yarmouth. After remaining some 
time in the town he proceeded to his house at Merton in Surrey, which the 
hero had then recently acquired. From that place he wrote to Mr. Barker, 
saying, " I never shall forget all your goodness to me ; and if ever I am 
" placed in a situation to shew my gratitude I trust I shall not be found 
" wanting." 

In acknowledgment of the hospitality of Mr. Barker to naval officers, 
Captain Hardy presented him with a model of the Admiral's barge, with the 
figure of Nelson seated at the stern, and rowed by the jolly tars of that day, 
with their ample pigtails. It remained in Mr. Barker's possession until his 
death, but what subsequently became of it is not known. 

As an example of the social habits which prevailed at the commencement 
of the present century, it may be mentioned that Mr. Barker, when mayor, 
gave as usual his Inauguration Dinner at the Town Hall on Michaelmas 
Day, to as many guests as the tables would accommodate. He was 
also Captain of a Company of Volunteers, who were entertained else- 
where ; but when a sufficient number of guests had left the Hall at 
night, the Volunteers " marched in, preceded by their band, and caroused 
" till three or four o'clock in the morning." 

Mr. Barker died in 1812, leaving two sons, the Rev. 
Samuel Loney Barker, who was run over and killed in 
the streets of London, and John Barker, who (being 
deaf) was accidentally knocked down and killed in the 
streets of Norwich. 

Barker of Lowestoft and Yarmouth bore, Barry of 
ten or and sa., over all a bend gu. An emblazonment 
of their arms on vellum was presented by Sir William 
Woods, Garter, to the above-named John Barker, Esq., of Norwich. 



(2 P. 74. William Parr Palgrave, 

The eldest son of the Collector was named after the celebrated Dr. Parr, 
who then resided at Norwich, and with whom the Collector and his father 
were intimate. The doctor occasionally paid a visit at Coltishall, one bond 
of union with the Collector being a mutual fondness for tobacco. The 
doctor, it is said, always indulged in a pipe after dinner, and before com- 
mencing operations used, whoever happened to be present, to desire the 
servant to bring his " smoking coat.* 

(3) P. 74. Mrs. Ker, 

Was named after Miss Matilda Church of Great Yarmouth, her maternal 
cousin, who by her will left her godchild a legacy of ^2000. 

(4) P. 75. William Barker Palgrave, 

The second but eldest surviving son of William Palgrave the Collector. 
When his father was selected for Dublin, he commenced business in that 
city as a merchant and shipowner; and his brother Charles George 
Palgrave joining him, the firm became W. B. and C. Palgrave and Co., 
and their extensive shipping and mercantile transactions necessitated 
the establishment of a house in London. 

Ireland is much indebted to this enterprising firm for opening out a 
direct steam communication with many foreign countries ; and they are 
well known for their early and large importations of cattle from abroad 
into Ireland and^England. 

There is a portrait of Mr. Charles George Palgrave at Shaddingfield 

(5) P. 75. Thomas Palgrave, 

The third but now the eldest surviving son of the Collector, was destined 
to the profession of the law, and served his articles of clerkship at Great 
Yarmouth, with Thomas Fowler Steward, Esq. (who still survives). He left 
his native town on the appointment of his father to the Collectorship of 
Customs at Dublin, and established himself at Liverpool, where he ob- 
tained a large and lucrative practice as a solicitor and notary public ; after 


enjoying which for thirty-five years, he retired, and purchased an estate in 
North Wales, in the valley of the Conway, where he erected a house called 
Bryn-y-gynog for his own residence, and was made a county magistrate. 

(6) P. 75. WOODHOUSE, 

There was a family of this name which, according lo Elomefield, held 
considerable possessions at Waxham in Norfolk, and bore Quarterly as. 
and erm. t in the first quarter a leopard's head or; but which family was 
quite distinct from the great Norfolk family of WODEHOUSE of Kimberley. 
—See Blomefield's Norfolk, vol. ix. p. 353. 

Henry Alderson Woodhouse, who married Mary Elizabeth Palgrave, was 
the son of Ollyctt Woodhouse, Esq., of the Temple, Barrister -at- law, who 
was Judge Advocate in Bombay, by Harriett, his wife, who was a daughter 
of Joseph Atkinson, of Bradley Mills, Lancashire. 

The mother of Mr. Ollyett Woodhouse was a daughter of James 
1 of Lowestoft, and consequently a sister of Robert Alderson, Esq., 
Recorder of Norwich, Ipswich, and Great Yarmouth. Mrs. Woodhouse 
had three other brothers,— James Alderson, the eldest, attained to con- 
siderable eminence as a physician at Norwich, where he died in 1S48 ; 
Thomas, who settled at Newcastle ; and John, a physician at Hull, where 
he died in 1829, aged seventy-two, leaving a son, Sir James Alderson, M,D. 

M 2 


Amelia, the only child of Dr. James Alderson of Norwich, married 
John Opie, the celebrated portrait painter, who died in 1807. She was 
a well-known authoress, and published White Lies and other works, and 
continued to reside at Norwich, in a house at a corner of a new street 
leading from London Street to the Castle Ditches (called in her honour Opie 
Street), until her death. 

Recorder Alderson married Elizabeth, only child of Thomas Hurry, Esq., 
of Great Yarmouth, by Isabella his wife, daughter of John Hall of Whitby, 
by whom the recorder had a son, Sir Edward Hall Alderson, one of the 
Barons of the Court of Exchequer, who, by Georgina Catherine his wife, 
daughter of the Rev. Edward Drew, of Broadhants, Devon, had, with 
other children, Georgina Caroline, now Marchioness of Salisbury. 

Serjeant Firth, when the Recordership of Great Yarmouth became vacant 
by the resignation of Mr. Joddrell, became a candidate for that office; 
but Mr. Alderson, although not coinciding with a majority of the corpo- 
ration in politics, was elected, when, it is pretended, he gave vent to 
his satisfaction in some lines beginning with — 

" Recorder I am, but I don't care a d 

" For the mayor and the whole corporation." 

Lionel Leighton Woodhouse, who, as seen in the pedigree, married 
Harriette Clara Woodhouse, his cousin, was son of Richard Woodhouse, 
Esq., of London (by Harriet Sarah his wife, daughter of Henry Thomas 
Williams by Honoria Torriano his wife), an elder brother of Ollyett Wood- 
house, whose eldest brother was Thomas Woodhouse, of Corpus Christi 
College, Cambridge, well known for his eccentricities. Mr. Robert Wood- 
house, of Corpus Christi College, another brother, was Professor of As- 
tronomy at Cambridge. He married a daughter of Wilkins, the 
distinguished architect. 

(7) P. 75. Robert Palgrave, 

The fourth son of William Palgrave and Elizabeth (Barker) his wife 
was named after his uncle, the Registrar of Gibraltar already mentioned. 
He was educated for the medical profession at the University of Dublin, 
where he took the degree of M.D. He commenced practice at Liverpool, 
but his early death prevented his attaining the eminence he sought He 
instituted numerous researches into his family history, and made extensive 
genealogical collections. 


(8) P. 75. John Palgrave, 

The fifth son of the Collector, entered early into the same public 
service as his father, and was attached to the Custom House, first at 
Dublin and afterwards in London, where his intelligence and assiduity- 
gave promise of promotion ; but unfortunately becoming incapacitated 
by ill health, he was compelled to leave the service at an early age, and 
retired to Great Yarmouth, "here he died in 1868. 

(9) P. 76. Quintin Fleming, 

Eldest surviving son of Nicholas Fleming of Dublin, descended from the 
old Irish family of Slanc, Earls of Slane in the county of Mealh, a title 
now extinct or in abeyance. He claims to represent that family. 


This house on the South Beach, Great Yarmouth, now the property and 
residence of Samuel Nightingale, Esq., of which an engraving is here 
given, was erected by James Cuddon, Esq., of Lincoln's Inn, and in 1862 
it was the temporary residence of H.R.H. the Prince of Wales, when he 
paid a visit to Great Yarmouth to join the Norfolk Militia Artillery, of 
which regiment His Royal Highness had then recently been appointed 
Colonel by the Queen. It was subsequently purchased by Samuel 
Nightingale, Esq., who filled the office of Mayor of Yarmouth in i860, 
and again in 1868.

(2) Page 90. Turner Family. 

The ancestors of the Turners of Yarmouth were small 
landed proprietors at Kcnnington, a village in Norfolk 
now united to Mulbarion, the property (purchased in 
1570) descending from father to son for many genera- 
tions, until the present century, when it was sold. 

The founder of the Yarmouth family was Francis 
Turner, who was bred to the law, and having settled 
in Yarmouth, married the daughter of Thomas 
Godfrey, then Town Gerk, and eventually succeeded to that office in 
1710, but died at the early age of 38 in 1719, leaving a son, the Rev. 
Francis Turner, who by Sarah his wife, daughter of James Dawson, Esq , 
had issue (t) Francis, an eminent surgeon; (2) Joseph, who was Senior 
Wrangler in 1768, Master of Pembroke College, Cambridge, and ultimately 


Dean of Norwich ; (3) Richard, who through the influence of the Dean 
became Incumbent of Great Yarmouth ; and (4) James, the youngest, who 
became the resident partner of the firm of Gurneys and Co. of Norwich, 
when they first opened a bank at Great Yarmouth. The latter, by Elizabeth 
his wife, daughter of John Cotman, Esq., (of an old Yarmouth family) was 
the father of Dawson Turner, Esq., who married Mary, the eldest daughter 
of William Palgrave, Esq. 

Dawson Turner was born at Great Yarmouth in 1775, an< * was entered at 
Pembroke College, Cambridge, under the care of his uncle, the then Master ; 
but his father dying in the following year he was compelled to leave the 
University to supply his father's place in the bank. Business could but 
slightly interfere with his devotion to literature, and the name of Dawson 
Turner soon became known especially for his acquirements in Botany, in 
furtherance of whicli science he published some valuable works. In 1797 
he was elected a Fellow of the Linmcan Society. Few individuals have 
been more distinguished by literary honors, cither domestic or foreign. He 
became a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, the Royal Society, and 
others of less importance, whilst the foreign societies into which he was 
elected arc too numerous to mention. He formed an extensive library, 
was indefatigable in the collection of autographs, and was possessed of 
a small but choice collection of pictures. His best known illustrated books 
are Blomefield's History of Norfolk, 1 1 vols., swelled into 70, now in the 
Library of the British Museum. He also wrote and published A Tour in 
Normandy, and other works. In 1848 he issued his Sepulchral Remin- 
iscences, a very useful work for local genealogists, a new edition of which, 
extending to the churchyards and cemeteries down to the present time, 
is much required. 

The Turners of Yarmouth used for their arms, Sa. f a chev. erm. three 
mill rials or, on a chief arg, a lion pass. or. These arms appear on the 
family pew in Mulbarton church. 

The annexed portrait of Mrs. Dawson Turner is engraved by Edwards 
from a picture by Phillips, R.A., painted in 1814. 

Mrs. Turner was highly accomplished, and the Editors of this work are 
greatly indebted to her for the portraits of many members of her family 
engraved by her (as private plates). 

The annexed portrait of Mr. Dawson Turner was engraved by Mrs. Turner 
from a picture by Phillips, R.A , in 18 16.

(3) Page 91. Sir William Jackson Hooker. 

He claimed to be descended from the Secretary of Ireland who was a con- 
tributor to Hollingshed's Chronicles, and was of the same family of which 
Richard Hooker, author of the Ecclesiastical Polity \ was a member. He was 
the only surviving son of Joseph Hooker, Esq., of Exeter. He received his 
education at the Grammar School at Norwich. His turn for natural history 
early developed itself, and he made many botanical tours, the most important 
of which was that in Iceland, of which he gave an account in his Tour 
in Iceland, which was printed at Keymer's press, in Great Yarmouth. On 
returning from Iceland he narrowly escaped a terrible death. The ship on 
board which he was a passenger caught fire, and his only means of escape 
was the chance of a passing vessel. His father-in-law, Mr. Dawson Turner, 
proved a valuable and able assistant to him in his unwearied literary labours. 
He first settled at Halesworth in Suffolk, and in 1820 he accepted the Regius 
Professorship in the University at Glasgow, where he received the degree 
of LL.D. Here he published many important botanical works, and formed 
that Herbarium which became the finest in Europe. In 1841 he was ap- 
pointed to the Directorship of the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew, which 
he retained until his death. The honour of knighthood was conferred on 
him in 1836 in consideration of his scientific services. He was a D.C.L. 
of Oxford, and a Fellow of most of the scientific societies. He died at 
Kew at the advanced age of 81. He was succeeded in the Directorship of 
the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew by his son, Joseph Dalton Hooker, 
Esq., M.D., C.B., who on the 2nd of June, 1877, was gazetted a Knight 
Commander of the Most Exalted Order of the Star of India. 

The annexed portraits of Sir William and Lady Hooker were engraved by 
the late Mrs. Dawson Turner (private plates) ; that of Sir W. J. Hooker 
from a drawing by J. S. Cotman ; that of Lady Hooker from a drawing by 
T. Phillips, R.A.

He wrote and printed for private distribution, Notes in Norway in the 
Summer of 1836. 


(S) Page 91. Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker, K.CS.I. 

Joseph Dalton Hooker was born at Halesworth, Suffolk, on the 30th of 
June, 1 8 17. He was educated at the High School and University of 
Glasgow, and having imbibed from childhood a strong predilection for 
natural-history pursuits, collecting and examining, as opportunity offered, 
plants, minerals, and insects, his interest in such subjects was largely 
increased by the society which he met at his father's house ; for the rooms 
of Professor Hooker at Glasgow were the resort of scientific travellers, 
especially those engaged in arctic exploration. Among the associates of his 
youth were Franklin, Parry, Ross, Richardson, and indeed travellers from 
all parts of the world. Hence the reading of books of travel became a 
passion with him, and at the age of twenty-two he accompanied, officially as 
Assistant-Surgeon, but in reality as Naturalist, the famous expedition of Sir 
James Clark Ross, for the purpose of investigating the phenomena of 
terrestrial magnetism in the south circumpolar seas. And so actively did 
Hooker avail himself of the opportunities afforded by his visits to the various 
antarctic Islands, in addition to those in the vicinity of the Australian 
continent, that a grant of ^1000 was awarded by the Government to assist 
in the description and publication of his collected specimens. The botanical 
results of this adventurous voyage, worked out by Dr. Hooker in a manner 
quite unprecedented for its picturesque and philosophical detail, were pub- 
lished in six quarto volumes of closely-printed pages, illustrated with 500 
coloured plates. 

On the return of Dr. Hooker to England, the describing of his plants, 
coupled with the arduous duty of collating his specimens with those collected 
by previous voyagers, preserved in the herbarium of the British Museum, 
occupied the principal share of his attention until 1846, when he accepted 
the appointment of Botanist to the Geological Survey. His researches in 
connection with the duties of this office were directed more especially to the 
coal plants, and he contributed some valuable papers on the subject to the 
publications of that institution. 

Dr. Hooker having acquired a knowledge of the botany of the temperate 
zones, now felt a desire to explore that of the tropics. In 1847 he under- 
took an important botanical mission to the Sikkim and Nepal Himalayas ; 
his chief object being to collect facts for a geographical distribution of plants. 
He sent home rich collections both of dried and living plants, amongst the 
latter of which must especially be mentioned a magnificent series of new 
Rhododendrons, which now form conspicuous ornaments of our gardens and 


greenhouses. From drawings and specimens of these, transmitted by him 
to England, Sir William Hooker edited a superb folio volume, entitled 
Rhododendrons of the Sikkhn-Himalaya. 

In the Autumn of 1849 he was joined by Dr. Campbell, the political 
resident at Darjceling. Ti'^eiher they crossed the jealously-guarded frontier 
of Tibet, remaining two days on the forbidden grounds north of the snowy 
range. On their return into Sikkim, the natives of that country, with the 
short-sighted policy of semi-civilized people, seized and threw them into 
prison, thinking thus to extort a more favourable treaty from Dr. Campbell. 
For six weeks they were detained ; after which their return to Darjeeling 
was connived at. the natives being dismayed at the intelligence that an 
English force was advancing to their rescue. In the course of this journey 
Dr. Hooker surveyed the territory of Sikkim, from the plains of India to 
the frontier of Tibet, and from Bhotnn in the east to Nepal in the west, 
This map IH published by the Trigonometrical Survey of India. 

On his return to England in 1851 he published a narrative of his expe- 
dition, under the title of Himalayan Journals, or Notes of a Naturalist 
in Bengal, the Sikkim and Nepal Himalaya, the Khasia Mountains, &•£. 

In [856 the botanical establishment at Kew, with its museums, herbarium, 
and library, had so largely increased, that an appointment was created for 
him under his father as Assistant-Director. He became a Vice-President 
of the Royal and Linncan Societies, and it is in the Transactions of these 
Societies, especially the latter, that his principal botanical papers have been 
published, His most important work is a new Genera Plantarum, written 
in conjunction with Mr. Bent ham, on the plan of Endlicher's famous work, 
of which the first Part appeared in 1862. He was also one of the authors 
engaged In the preparation of a valuable series of the Floras of the British 
Colonies, now publishing under the authority of the GoTCTMnenfc He has 
also published The Student's Flora of the British Islands, the most 
scientific account of British plants which has hitherto appeared. He is 
M.D. of Glasgow, C.B., D.C.L. Oxford, LL.D, Cambridge and Glasgow, 
Correspondent of the Institute of France, and Member and Correspondent of 
all the scientific acadamies on the Continent and in America. He was 
elected President of the Royal Society in 1872, and in this capacity took the 
chair at the Norwich meeting; and in 1877 finally appointed a Knight of 
the Most Exalted Order of the Star of India. 


(6) Page 91. Sir Francis Palgrave. 

At an early age he showed signs of the ability which distinguished him in 
later years. When but eight years old, he translated the Battle of the Frogs 
and Mice, attributed to Homer, from Latin into French ; and before he had 
attained his twentieth year he had contributed many articles to the minor 
periodicals of the day, and, not many years later, he became a regular 
contributor to the Edinburgh and Quarterly Reviews. Being one of the 
Municipal Corporation Commissioners, he was knighted in 1831, and 
received the order of the White Horse of Hanover, in acknowledgment of 
his contributions to constitutional and parliamentary history. About that 
time he suggested to Lord Spencer a scheme for collecting the public 
muniments, which were scattered in many different repositories, under one 
management. This was effected by his energy, and in 1838 he was appointed 
Deputy Keeper of the Public Records, which were, by his exertions, 
systematically arranged and placed in the well-planned repository in the 
Rolls Court, Chancery Lane, where they were rendered as secure as possible, 
and can be easily inspected. 

The historical works which gained him an European reputation were 
The Rise and Progress of the English Commonwealth, published in 1832; 
an historical story called The Merchant and Friar, published in 1837 ; and 
The History of Normandy and England, published in 1851, which he was 
unhappily prevented by failing health from completing on his original plan. 

He died at Hampstead 8th July, 1861, aged 72. 

On his marriage with Elizabeth, second daughter of Dawson Turner, 
Esq., he, with the assent of William Palgrave, Esq., the then head of the 
family, assumed by Royal license the name of Palgrave, and obtained 
from the Herald's College the following coat of arms : Per pale as. and 
gu. a lion rampant arg., on a canton or an escarbuncle of the second ; and 
for the crest, on a wreath of the colours between two branches of palms 
ppr. a leopard's head affronte'e erased arg., charged on the neck with an 
escarbuncle sa. t with the motto " Laudans invocabo Dominum."

(9) Page 92. Robert Harry Inglis Palgrave. 

Sir Robert Harry Inglis, Bart., M.P. for the University of Oxford, was his 
Godfather. In 1871 he published The Local Taxation of Great Britain atid 
Ireland, and in 1873 Notes on Banking of Great Britain and Ireland, 
Sweden, Denmark, and Hamburg : and, principally in recognition of the 
latter work, he in 1874 received from the King of Sweden the Order of 
Vasa. In 1875 ^ e was appointed one of the three representatives of the 
English Issuing Country Bankers, to give evidence on their behalf before the 
" Select Committee of the House of Commons on Banks of Issue." His 
evidence will be found in the proceedings of that committee. He has 



edited for some years the Banker? Almanack and the Banker? Magazine. 
In 1877 he acquired a part ownership of the Economist, and became 
financial editor of that newspaper.

He is President of the Geological Society of Norwich, 
and has contributed many Papers to that science, to 
which he is devotedly attached. During his residence 
at Irstead he made a collection of geological remains 
found principally at Bacton, near his rectory, on the 
coast of Norfolk. He presented them to the Norwich 
Museum, and they are now deposited in the "Gunn 
Room " there. 
The Rev. William Gunn was the clergyman who officiated at the marriage 
of Prince Augustus Frederick, afterwards Duke of Sussex, with the Lady 
Augusta Murray, at Rome. In the latter years of his life he was Vicar of 
Gorleston, and died in 1841, aged 91. He published several well-known 
works on art.

(16) Page 96. Dr. Rigby. 

He was born at Chowbent, near Leigh, in Lan- 
cashire, and bore, Arg. a cross botonne* sa. charged 
with five mullets of the first. 

He settled as a physician at Norwich, where he 
soon acquired a large practice, and where he married, 
firstly, Miss Beevor, by whom he had two daughters. 
Dr. Rigby's sister married Dr. Parry of Bath, and 
became the mother of Sir Edward Parry, the Arctic 
voyager, who married a sister of the first Lord Stanley of Alderley, and was 
the father of Dr. Parry, now Bishop Suffragan of Dover. 

By his marriage, secondly, with Miss Palgrave he became the father of 
twelve children, the last four being at one birth, Dr. Rigby being then 70 
years of age and his wife 40. In celebration of this event the Corporation 
of Norwich presented him with a piece of plate. 

Dr. Rigby was an intimate friend of Thomas William Coke of Holkham, 
created Earl of Leicester on the accession of Queen Victoria, and took 
great interest in agriculture, upon which subject he was a prolific writer. 
Dr. Rigby was buried in the churchyard at Framingham Earl. 

" A monument to Rigby do you seek ? 
On every side the whispering woodlands speak ; " 

alluding to the extensive plantations made by him. 


His widow died at Slough in 1872, aged 95, leaving numerous des- 
cendants in the fourth generation. 

A family named Rigby, but not related it is believed to the Norfolk family, 
resided at Mistley Hall, in Essex.* 

Dr. Rigby filled the office of Mayor of Norwich in 1805. He was author 
of An Essay on Animal Heat, and on The Agriculture of Framingham 
and Ho Ik ham. There is an engraved portrait of him. 

His eldest son was a physician of acknowledged eminence in London, 
succeeding Dr. Gooch in the Lying-in Hospital, and was named Examiner 
in Midwifery in succession to Sir Charles Locock, and published several

The variations in the Palgrave arms referred to in the note, page 5, and 
the many ajmorial illustrations with which the monuments at Northwood 
Barningham are embellished, seem to require special notice and explana- 
tion ; and the more so as some of these armorials, as will be presently 
shown, are either entirely erroneous or at least irreconcileable with the known 
descents and alliances of the family. 

As to the Palgrave lion, it has already been, and is here again suggested, 
that it was the bearing of Hetherset, and adopted by the Palgraves on the 
marriage with the heiress. In the Visitation of Norfolk in 1563 (College of 
Arms, G 1, 79 b ) the pedigree, entered by Clement Palgrave, has for arms, 
Dexter, quarterly, 1 and 4, Azure, a lion rampant gardant or, for Palgrave; 
2 and 3, Gules, a maunche ermine, obviously for Hetherset, to which name I 
find this coat assigned in the books, as well as to that of Berningham (see 
ante, p. 4). Thus it would appear that the Palgraves adopted at that time 
a quarterly coat, as from the Hethersets. The impalement (sinister) is 
Reade. It may here be mentioned that in two collections of Norfolk arms 
(College of Arms, 2 G 13, 6j h y and H 16, 63) this quarterly coat, impaling 
Reade, is in error entered as that of John Palgrave. 

In the Norfolk Visitation of 161 3 (College of Arms, C 15, 27 b ) Robert 
Palgrave of Thuxton (see ante, p. 30) entered his pedigree. The quarterly 
coat is allowed to him, with a crescent for difference, but the lion is argent, 
not or, and he impales Pigeon. 

In a collection of Yorkshire arms (College of Arms, D 9, 42** and 43) 
Palgrave is entered alone and impaled with Pennington (see the marriage, 
ante, p. 17), and in these instances we have the variation of the lion {argent) 
being rampant and not gardant. 

So far the Heralds. We will now see how the Palgraves by degrees piled 
up arms for themselves. The brass to Henry Palgrave, who died 11 Oct. 


15 16, has four shields — 1, Palgrave, the lion rampant and gardant ; 2, Pal- 
grave impaling Glemham (wife of Henry) ; 3, Palgrave impaling (device 
defaced, but probably Yelverton, Henry's mother) ; and 4, Glemham im- 
paling Brandon (Eleanor, daughter of Sir William Brandon, and mother 
of the wife of Henry Palgrave.) 

By 161 1, when John Palgrave died and a monument was raised, they had, 
in imitation of the elaborate armorial display of that age, by hook or by 
crook, accumulated nine quarterings, which, in a shield, surmounted the 
monument, and (though making allowances for original mistakes in the 
representation or marshalling of the coats, and for subsequent wrong colour- 
ing) it is impossible to read these quarters from any light of the pedigree. 
John Palgrave had a right to quarter Hetherset, Bemingham, Sturmer, 
Yelverton, and Glemham, with any other arms those may have " brought 
in," but instead of this we have an impossible shield, — 1 and 9, Azure, a 
lion rampant (not gardant) and argent for Palgrave; 2, Azure, a lion ram- 
pant gardant or, query for Hethersett; 3, Gules, a maunche ermine, query 
for Berningham; 4, Gules, a chevron argent between three plates, which 
coat is entered to the name of Stormyn, and may be meant for Sturmer; 
or, if wrongly coloured, for Glemham, whose arms were Or, a chevron gules 
between three torteaux ; ^ Ermine^ a chief indented gules, is on the books 
to the Sieur de Morteigne and to Hengrave and Brome. Its introduction 
here cannot be accounted for. The same observation applies to 6, Argent, 
a fess between two chevrons sable, which is given to the name Honington; 
7, Sable, two chevronels or, does not appear to be a known coat ; 8, Per pale 
dancette'e argent and sable, six wrens, two, two, and two counterchanged, is 
the coat of Wren, but why here is not known. 

The monument of John Palgrave contains eight other shields. The five 
surrounding the half-circle, on which is the inscription to his memory, are as 
follows, Palgrave in each case having the argent lion, and rampant only : — 

1. Palgrave impaling Saunders (wife of John), Sable, a chevron ermine 
between three bulls' heads cabossed argent. 

2. Palgrave impaling Willoughby (wife of Sir Austin), Or, two bars 
gules charged (two and one) with three maunches ermine, 

3. Ridlesden, Argent y a chevron between three cross crosslets fitche'e 
sable, impaling Palgrave. (Elizabeth, daughter of John). 

4. Jermy, Argent, a lion rampant gardant gules, impaling Palgrave. 
(Jane, daughter of John). 

5. Dexter, a blank; sinister, Palgrave. (Intended for Margaret, daughter 
of John, shortly afterwards married to John Pope, LL.D.) 


The three other shields on the base are : — 1, Palgravc impaling Glemham 
(wrongly coloured) ; 2, Palgrave impaling Yelverton, Argent, three lions 
rampant and a chief gules ; and 3, Palgrave impaling Argent, a chevron 
azure between three squirrels sejant ppr. ; a coat assigned to Holt, but 
the presence of which here is unaccountable. 

The next in chronological order of the monuments is that to Margaret 
Pope, the daughter of John Palgrave, who died in 1621. Here again we 
have another heraldic puzzle. The monument is surmounted of a shield 
with six quarters in the dexter (presumably belonging to Pope, but into 
which it is not necessary to enter), and twelve in the sinister for his wife 
Margaret She thus added four to her father's shield, viz., Argent \ on a 
bend sable three mullets of the field ; a coat which appears elsewhere on the 
monument, and is only found to the name of Entwistle, 2, Sadie, a chevron 
between three cross crosslets argent; which cannot be accounted for, 
except it is a mis-coloured representation of Ridlesden. 3, Sable, a fess 
between two chevrons or; which is assigned to the name of Gerbridge. 
And 4, Sable, a cross engrailed or; which is the coat of Ufford, but may 
" have been intended for Willoughby. It should be observed that the colour- 
ing of the sixth quarter in this achievement, Azure, a fess between two 
chevrons argent, differs from that on the shield of John Palgrave before 

The six other shields on this monument are as follows : — 

1. Palgrave (lion not gardant) impaling Saunders. 

2. Palgrave impaling the three mullets on the bend, as in the shield above. 

3. Pofie, Or, three chevronels gules, on a canton of the last a mullet of 
the field. 

4. Palgrave. 

5. Palgrave impaling Azure, a bend within a bordure engrailed argent; 
a coat borne by no family connected with the Palgraves. 

And 6. Glemham impaling Brandon. 

In 1639 Sir Austin Palgrave died, and a monument was raised to him, 
which is surmounted by an achievement of thirteen quartcrings ; the twelve 
as on the monument of his sister Margaret Pope, and an extra one (the 
second, and immediately following Palgrave), viz., Gules, a bend between 
three escallops or; arms which, entered to IVignall or IVigenall, would 
seem, like many others, to be introduced without any ground or pretence 

Of the six minor shields on this monument we find— 1, Palgrave alone. 
2, Palgrave impaling a chevron between three roundels, intended for 


Sturmer or Glemham. 3, Palgrave impaling the three mullets on the bend 
above named. 4, Palgrave impaling Yelverton. 5, Palgrave impaling 
Saunders, And 6, Palgrave impaling Willoughby (the three maunches on 
the two bars). 

Sir John Palgrave, first baronet, who doubtless authorized this monument 
to his father's memory, entered his pedigree at the Visitation in 1664 (College 
of Arms, D 20, 170). The official return of the arms allowed at this Visi- 
tation are entered in a separate volume (College of Arms, D 2i # , 11), and 
here, to the credit of the Heralds, the simple coat of Palgrave only (and as 
u Azure, a lion rampant argent") is entered for Sir John ; but at the foot of 
the pedigree a "tricking" is added of the thirteen quarters on the then 
recently-erected monument to Sir Austin, but without names or other usual 
indications of official recognition. They may have purposed identifying 
them on their return to their records, but they remain to this day, and will 
probably always remain, an assemblage of fanciful heraldry. 

It should be stated, however, that in an exemplification of the twelve 
quarterings of the Pastons (College of Arms, Philp 34, ioo, b ), the following, 
as named and numbered, occur : — 

7. Ermine, a chief indented gules, H engrave. 

8. Argent, a fess between three crescents gules, Watsam (not borne by 

9. Azure, a lion rampant gardant or, Hetherset; and, 

10. Sable, a fess between two chevrons or, Gerbridge* 

Other variations in the Palgrave arms should be noted. John Pagrave of 
Coleford, co. Somerset, bore, Azure, a lion statant argent; and for crest, A 
rhinoceros or (College of Arms, Misc. Gts. 1, 117, and 4, 138). 

Gules, a lion rampant gardant or, collared argent, debruised by a bendlet 
azure, is entered to Simon Paldegrave (College of Arms, Vin. Ord. 250), and 
the same coat is found to Polgrave and Poldegrew, corruptions of the name. 

The same authority (fo. 226) gives Azure, a lion passant argent to the 
name of Palegrave. Or, a lion rampant gardant azure, is also entered to 
the name of Pagrave (College of Arms, E. D. N. Ind.) ; and in the same 
volume the rhinoceros crest is noted as borne by a Norfolk family of the 

* Mr. Walter Rye and the Rev. H. T. Griffith of Felmingham were both kind 
enough to put this shield of quarterings to the test of their well-known collections of 
and acquaintance with early Norfolk descents, but were unable to throw any light 
upon it 


name, though it has not appeared in any of the investigations relating to 
them and comprised in this book. 

In 1730 (8th June) Thomas Lubbock, son of Richard Lubbock and 
Elizabeth his wife, eldest daughter and coheir of Thomas Palgrave (see 
p. 55), had a grant of arms for Lubbock, which see in extenso, p. 183 ; and 
his descent from the, Palgraves was commemorated in the crest as follows, A 
stork rising ppr., reposing the dexter foot on an antique shield charged with 
the arms of Palgrave, being Azure, a lion rampant gardant argent (College 
of Arms, Gts. 8, 75 b ). 

In 1796, on the entry of the Pedigree of the Northwood Barningham 
family, consequent on the law-suit referred to on the extinction of the line of 
the baronets (see p. 13), the arms are given as Azure, a lion rampant 
gardant or (College of Arms, N 3, 51). 

In 1825 (2nd July) the following were exemplified to Sir Francis Palgrave 
on his taking that name, Per pale azure and gules, a lion rampant argent, on 
a canton or an escarbuncle of the second. Crest: Between two branches of 
palm ppr. a leopard's head affronte'e erased argent charged on the neck with 
an escarbuncle sable (College of Arms, Gts. 35, 217). See the grant in 
extenso, p. 185. 

The only subsequent official dealing with the arms was the grant and 
confirmation to Mr. Thomas Palgrave, which see in extenso, p. 187.

in the Patent and in the Tabular Pedigree arises from the evidence of the 
monument having been required in establishing the claim to the arms 
(and on which monument the date is 6th March, 1638), and the evidence 
of the register (which gives it as 11 th May % 1638) being of course accepted 
in preference by the examiners of the Pedigree. 

These alterations have already appeared in the preceding pages.

John Palgrave or Pallgrave. 

Celebrated as a grammarian, is spoken of in most biographical notices 
as a native of London. Although unable to assign any place to him in the 
Norfolk Pedigrees, there are circumstances which suggest his connection 
with the North wood Barningham line. He was tutor to Mary Tudor, 
Dowager of France, and wife of Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk, to 
whom the Palgraves were, as has been shown, related through the Glemham 
marriage. Again, Frances Pennington (ne'e Palgrave) was in the household 
of the Dowager, who, with her second husband, stayed for three days at 
Great Yarmouth, and " took great liking for the same, promising that they 
would procure the King's Majesty himself to come to see it." — Manship the 
elder, p. 22. A contract for printing one of John Palgrave's works has been 
edited, from the original in the Record Office, by Mr. FurnivaJl, for the 
Philosophical Society. 

Note. — There was a family of Palgrave in Bedfordshire, a descendant of 
which, Mr. Robert Palgrave, of Queen Victoria Street, London, is now
