EEPOET 

Presented at the Annual Meeting, 21st March, 1906. 



The 4tli Volume of the KSociety's publications has been issued 
to the members and contains Miscellaneous Documents of much 
interest and usefulness. In particular, voluminous Extracts from 
three parts of the Eegister of Bishop Praty (1438-1445) have been 
compiled by Prebendary Deedes. The compilation has been made 
with great skill and very considerable labour, and the best thanks 
of the members are due to the compiler. 

Volume v., containing the Protestation Returns for West Sussex 
in 1642, prepared by Mr. E. Garraway Eige, F.S.A., is being 
printed. This is the Volume for 1905 ; that for 1906, Volume VI., 
which will be commenced as soon as Volume V. is finished, will 
contain a continuation of the Marriage Licenses, contributed to the 
Society in Volume I. by Mr. E. H. W. Dunkin, F.S.A. To follow 
these, the Council have in contemplation for 1907 The Poll Tax for 
the Eape of Chichester, in course of preparation by Mr. Percy S. 
GoDMAN, and also beyond 1907 further Extracts from the Episcopal 
Registers, by Prebendary Deedes. 

The Council have again to acknowledge a further most generous 
gift of £30 (in addition to his former donation of £20 last year), 
from Mr. Henry Wagner, P.S.A. The Council desire to express 
their grateful sense of such invaluable assistance towards the 
development of the Society. 

The Council would once more urge upon all its members the 
importance of obtaining a larger number of subscribers, to enable 
the Society to enlarge its publications. 

The Officers of the Society o&ev themselves for re-election.

INTEODUCTION. 



rjlHE PEOTESTATION EETUENS were the outcome of a Resolu- 
tion of the House of Commons made on the 30th of July, 
1641, declaring inter alia " That what person soever shall not take 
the Protestation is unfit to heare Office in the Church or Common- 
wealth" (p. 3). The Protestation (p. 2) with the Order, Preamble, 
and Resolutions of the House of Commons thereon are given in the 
opening pages of this work (pp. 1 to 3), and by reference thereto the 
scope of the movement, which was both religious and political, can 
be easily gathered. These documents are given verbatim et literatim 
from an official printed copy sent down to Tangmere (p. 174), upon 
the dorse of which the Rector of that Parish made his Beturn. It is 
interesting to note that the printer of this official document apparently 
ran out of capital P's and had to use some of a different fount. Another 
copy, but not printed from the same type, was used in a like manner 
in making the Beturn for the Cathedral Close of Chichester (p. 45), a 
duplicate of which is also attached to the Beturns for the parishes in 
that City (p. 44). The Protestations have been dealt with by the 
Royal Commission on Historical Manuscripts.^ The Protestation is 
printed in extenso in the Report,^ where the annexed account of the 
movement is given : — 

"This protestation was reported and agreed to in the Commons, 
and ordered to be made by every member of that House on the 3rd of 
May, 1641. It was agreed to by the Lords, and ordered to be made 
by every member of their House on the following day. On the 5th 
of May the Commons ordered the protestation and preamble to be 
printed, the copies to be attested by the Clerk, and then sent b}' the 
members of their several counties and boroughs, with an intimation 
' with what willingness the members of this House made this protesta- 
' tion, and as they justify their taking of it in themselves, so they 
' cannot but approve it in them that shall likewise take it.' Subse- 
quently it was resolved that the protestation is fit to be made by

everyone, and that what person soever shall not make the protestation 
is unfit to bear office in the church or common-wealth, and that it is a 
' Shibboleth to discover a true Israelite.' " 

"In January 1641-2, the Speaker recommended by letter the 
making of the protestation to the sheriffs, mayors, and others in 
general. The returns of the names of those who had made the pro- 
testation appear to have come in rapidly after this, for on the 8th of 
March they are referred to a committee instructed to receive them, and 
to consider what is fit to be done with those that refuse the protesta- 
tion. The returns are for the most part dated February or March 
1641-2, and contain in almost all cases the names of those persons 
who have subscribed the protestation, and sometimes also the names 
of any who have refused. In a few cases the minister of the parish 
certifies that all have subscribed without giving the names." ^ 

The Protestation Bcturns are preserved at the House of Lords (p. 6). 

Amongst many other points of interest, the West Sussex Protesta- 
tion Returns cannot fail to be of service to inquirers who are studying 
the distribution of the population of the County in the 17th century ; 
further, as indicating the names of those persons professing the Uoman 
Catholic Religion, they are perhaps unrivalled, while to the genealogist 
the parochial lists of names are invaluable, for by their aid the 
whereabouts of off-shoots from families can be ascertained, and thus 
much haphazard searching of parish registers avoided. 

These Beturns, containing, as they do, lists of the names of all 
males aged eighteen years and upwards, whether householders or not, 
and in which lists absentees, etc., are carefully accounted for, form 
almost a complete Directory of the period for the Western half of the 
County, showing a total of about twelve thousand eight hundred and 
nineteen persons, omitting duplicate names. This number is inclusive 
of those names partly gone, which occur in the few damaged Returns, 
and also of the parish officers, who are not always mentioned by 
name in the Returns, in consequence of having previously taken 
the Protestation before the Justices. To these may be added the 
estimated number of six hundred, for those i^ersons whose names 
were entered in the five missing Returns (p. 6), based upon the 
l^opulation of those parishes in 1801, which gives in 1641-2, for the 

^ Amongst the Sussex Returns there are not any of this description. 



INTRODUCTION. Ill 

three Western Bapes, a male population, aged eighteen years and 
upwards, of abont thirteen thousand four hundred and nineteen. 

r\ A petition to the House of Lords is extant (p. 4), dated the 17th of 
February, 1641-2, of the High Sheriff, Knights, Esquires, Gentlemen, 
Ministers, Freeholders and inhabitants of the County of Sussex, asking 
iyiter alia " That yo' hon" would be pleased to joyne w"' y^ house of 
Commons for y* generall takinge of y® Protestacion, many reporting 
it as a thinge discountenanced by some of yo"^ hon"." 

The Beturns for the parishes in the Western half of Sussex (which 
are alone extant, those for the three Eastern Eapes having been lost) 
have been sorted by the Commission, and these are now arranged 
under the three Western Rapes respectively, the Beturns for the 
parishes in each Hundred being put up in separate wrappers. A 
topographical list made according to this arrangement is given in the 
Report.^ For the purpose of this work and in order to facilitate 
ready reference. I have placed the parishes in strict lexicographical 
order, and at the commencement of each Beturn have given both the 
Rape and Hundred, and also the official number, etc., with which the 
document is indorsed, so that if occasion should arise, reference to the 
original can easily be made. 

The Protestation was administered by the Justices of the Peace to 
the respective Ministers, Curates, Constables, Churchwardens and 
Overseers, who subsequently gave it to the male inhabitants of their 
parishes who were aged eighteen years and upwards. The only 
exception in the Sussex Beturns is that the Minister and Church- 
wardens, etc., of Billingshurst made the Protestation before " Giles 
Garton, sheriffe of the said County " (pp. 7 and 29). The Beturn 
for Chichester Bape containing the names of such officials is 
fortunately preserved (pp. 8 to 16). Amongst these is the name 
of "John Woodman, Curat of Yapton " (p. 14), to which is added 
" Arrondel Rape, but in respect of his being at Chichester, tooke it at 
Chichester before me Ed : Higgons." Reference to this list will be 
found amongst the notes given in brackets at the head of the Beturn 
for each parish mentioned in it. A similar Beturn for the parishes in 
Chichester is amongst the Beturns for that City (pp. 44 and 45). 

^ p. 132 et seq. 



IV WEST SUSSEX PROTESTATION EETURNS. 

Three Justices of the Peace in each Eape appear to have received 
directions from the Speaker of the House of Commons to take the Pro- 
testation themselves, and afterwards to administer it to the respective 
Ministers, Churchwardens and Overseers of the Poor, etc. The Justices 
so appointed for Arundel Eape, as appears from their letter dated the 
28th February, 1641-2 (p. 7), were Sir William Goring, Baronet, who 
was of Burton, and Sir John Leedes, Knight, who was of Wapping- 
thorne in Steyning ; the Protestation was administered to the latter 
by his two colleagues at Petworth, on the 12th February, 1641-2, " who 
by reason of the indisposition of his health was disabled to travaile 
into Lewes there to take the Protestacion, as by Summons from the 
High Sheriffe hee was required" (p. 7) ; the third Justice was John 
Apsley, Esq., who was of Pulborough. The names of the three 
Justices acting for Bramber Eape can be gathered from the Beturns, 
viz., Henry Groringe, Esq., who was of Highden in Washington, to 
"the Minister, and Churchwai'dens, and Overseers of the Poor," of 
which parish he administered the Protestation on the 23rd February, 
1641-2 (p. 189), and he himself received it from the same Minister on 
27th February, as appears from the following note in the Beturii, '• M'', 
the day abovesayed, the sayed Henry Groringe, beeiuge of the Parishe 
of Washington, did take the Protestation aforesayed, beefore mee, Nic. 
Garbrand, Parson of Washington" (p. 189) ; the two other Justices were 
Ealfe Cowper, Esq., who was of Stroode in Slinfold, and Thomas 
Middleton, Esq., who was of Hills Place in Horsham. Two of the 
Justices who acted for Chichester Eape were, as appears from their 
Return of the names of the Ministers, etc., in that Eape who took the 
Protestation (p. 8), Edward Higgons, Esq., who was of Bnrj, and Sir 
William Forde, Knight, who was of South Harting; his name, as 
" Edw : Forde, Justice of the Peace," occurs amongst those of the 
parish ofHcers of Harting, in above Beturn, who took the Protestation 
at Chichester before him and the said Edward Higgons, Esq., on the 
l7th February, 1641-2 (p. 10). The name of the third Justice who served 
for Chichester Eape does not appear. For the City of Chichester, the 
Mayor and four other Justices acted, as appears from their Beturn 
(p. 44). The Mayor in that year [1641-2], according to both Hay's 
"History of Chichester" and the list painted up in the Council 
Chamber there, was one Eobert Exton, but in the Beturn (p. 44) his 
christian name appears, from his signature, to be " Elix " [PChr'', 
certainly not Eobert, or any abbreviation of that name. 



INTRODUCTION. V 

The procedure followed upon the arrival, in the respective parishes, 
of the Protestation from London, so far as can be gleaned from the 
Sussex Returns, would seem to have been this : — Warning was first 
given to the parishioners to attend at the church and take the Pro- 
testation there ; those persons who were unable to do so could receive 
it from the Incumbent or parish officers subsequently, and finally such 
persons as did not present themselves were called upon by the respec- 
tive Incumbents, Churchwardens and Overseers. In proof of these 
deductions some extracts are appended. 

The receipt of the printed Protestation from London appears to be 
recorded in the Return for Appledram (p. 22), for besides stating that 
the Protestation was taken "this 13"^ of February," 17th of Charles, 
1641-2, a note at the foot runs thus, " Eeceaved at the Swane on 
Saturday the twelfe of February 1641." The Minister, Church- 
wardens and Overseers of the Poor of Nuthurst (p. 130), after record-, 
ing having taken the Protestation themselves, state that they " Have, 
accordinge to the Direccions of the Howse of Commons, called the rest 
of the Parishoners together ^^ the 13th of February, 17th Charles 
[1641-2], "and tendercl unto them the same Protestacion, and have 
hereunder written the names of those Persons w"*^ have taken the 
same ; And further wee answere that there are none of our Parishoners 
w'='' refuse the same." At the end of the Return for St. Peter the 
Great, Chichester (p. 56), is a list containing twelve names, under the 
heading, " The names of the Inhabitants w'inthe Cloase of Chichester 
^^ch refused to take the Protestacion according to the Order." These 
persons, with fourteen others, as appears from the Return for the 
Cathedral Close (p. 45), all being " y*' inhabitants of y^ Claus of y* 
Cathedrall Church of Chichester, did upon y® eleventh dale of Febr : 
1641, w'^ all willingness, take y^ Protestation loHn y^ Quire of 'if same 
Cliurch, before Joseph Henshawe Do"^ of Divinitie, who had formerly 
himself taken it before the Justices of y^ Peace, according to y^ 
directions of this Ho'''^ House." From the annexed note from the 
Return for Lancing (p. 112), it is also clear that the Protestation was 
administered at the church, and subsequently by the Vicar to such 
parishioners as came to him, for he records that " Onely one, Thomas 
Swifte, the brother of John Swifte, the Coppieholder, a poore Fellow, 
haveing laivfull tuarning came not unto the Church or tmto me, to take 
the Protestacion," The Minister, Churchwardens and Overseers of 



VI WEST SUSSEX PROTESTATION RETURNS. 

the Poor of Tillington (p. 181), in making their Return, give the names 
of three inhabitants " whiche have not made Protestacion," adding 
"the Minister and officers of the Parishe havinge bin at their Jtouses 
and cannot sj)eake with them." In the Beturn for Singleton (p. 157), 
in addition to the list of protesters, is a supplementary one of sixteen 
names, to which the following note, by the Rector, is appended : 
"Some of these have taken the above Protestation, and I doubt not 
but they all will, as soon as I can get to them, take the said Pro- 
testacion." It appears, from what is evidently a postscript, that three 
of the persons whose names are in the supplementary list, did not take 
"the said Protestacion;" it may be assumed, therefore, that as the 
result of the visits from the Rector, the rest did. Again, it appears 
from the Beturn for Westbourne (p. 192), that two parishioners "were 
warned . . . but did not come accordingly." 

The Sussex Returns are for the most part on paper, but some are 
on parchment. Taken as a whole, they are in an excellent state of 
preservation, although a few are slightly damaged at the edges, 
causing the loss of a small number of surnames ; attention is called 
to this where it occurs. In some of the Beturns the Protestation is 
recited, whilst in others it is not. Occasionally the Beturns contain 
the actual signatures and marks of those parishioners who took the 
Protestation. These names are frequently difficult to decipher, and in 
some few instances little more than a guess can be made. The marks 
have been reproduced as far as type would permit, crosses and 
nondesci'ipt marks being rendered by a cross thus X. The greater 
number of the Sussex Beturns are carefully written lists of names, 
generally certified by the Incumbents or Curates, Churchwardens and 
Overseers, etc. In these written lists the spelling is to a great extent 
phonetic, and at the caprice of the respective scribes, but they contain 
many items of interest not to be found in the first-mentioned lists. 
For example, the social position of the more important protesters is 
sometimes indicated either by the prefix " M''," or by the addition of 
"Esq.," "Gent.," "Alderman," "Phisitian," "Clark," etc. Trades 
are, however, rarely mentioned, but Thomas Cannon, of Henfield (p. 95), 
is described as "tanner," and Thomas Simmons, of Boxgrove (p. 36), 
as "shouelm" (?shovelman), besides which two or three trades are given 
in the Beturn for West Dean (p. 69), hereinafter mentioned. One 
John Swifte, of Lancing (p. 112), is called "the Coppieholder." 



INTRODUCTION. Vll 

Yeomen and farmers are described occasionally, as of their respective 
farms, e.g., "John Mich ell de Oox, sen"^," and "John Michell de 
Maies," both in Warnham (p. 187). Senior and junior are used to 
distinguish persons of the same name, and in the Bekirn for Petworth 
(pp. 136 to 1 39), where there are five persons named John Philpe, one is 
described as " midle " (p. 1 39). In the South Harting Return (pp. 92 to 
94) there are three persons named John Pitt, one of whom is described as 
"of Uppton," and another as "the heire ; " again in the Beturn for 
Barlavington (p. 25) there is a like number of protesters, each named 
Edward Q-arrett, one being described as "Leiutenant at Portsmouth." 
Servants are occasionally described as such, e.g., in the Northchapel 
Return (p. 130) two protesters are severally described as " M'' Paylers 
man." In two or three of the Returns the inhabitants are grouped 
under hamlets within the respective parishes, thus in Lyminster (p. 
1 20 and 121) they ajjpear in three lists, headed Lyminster, Tottington 
and Weeke respectively, and in the Return for West Dean (pp. 69 and 
70) the protesters are severally gi'ouped under "West Deane and 
Chilgrove " and " Chilegrove and Stapleash." The Return for West 
Dean is of special interest, for it is the only Sussex one where, it 
would seem, the protesters, including servants, are arranged under 
households. In this Return, as also in that for Westbourne, when 
both fathers and sons protested, the latter are described as such. The 
names of "Robert Brooker" and "Thomas Brooker " are bracketted 
together in the Pagham Return (p. 134), and the word "frater" is 
written after the same. 

The material upon which each Return is made, and also whether 
the Return contains signatures and marks, or is merely a written list 
of names, is stated in the head note to each ; in the one case this may 
suggest a possible source, if the facsimile of an autograph is required, 
and in the other may prevent a useless journey. 

Two of the Sussex Returns are described in the Reporf^ as "of 
places not named ; " these I have identified as for Bosham (p. 34) and 
Chidham (p. 57) respectively. Another Return, from which a small 
piece that contained the name of the parish is torn, is indorsed in 
pencil "Place Unnamed, perhaps Linch." This I have likewise 
identified as really the Beturn for South Harting (p. 92), while 

5 Fifth Report [see ante, p. i, note 1), p. 133. 



Vlll WEST SUSSEX PROTESTATION RETURNS. 

another which, is indorsed, upon the authority of intx-insic evidence, as 
"West Preston," seems clearly to be the Beturn for Eustington (p. 148), 
in which parish the Manor and Hamlet of West Preston are situated, 
the place last named not being a parish. Again one sheet of a Beturn 
is indorsed in pencil " AVashington " etc. (p. 39), and consequently it 
is now placed with the Beturn for that parish, but it forms really part 
of the Beturn for Broadwater (pp. 37 to 39). The evidence by which 
the respective identifications have been effected is set out at the 
commencement of each of the above-mentioned Beturns. With the 
exception of five parishes," the Beturns for the three Western Eapes 
are complete. It is probable that the Beturn for Arundel, which is 
one of the missing ones, if sent in at all, went up at a later date, for 
in the letter of the Justices of the Peace (p. 7), dated 28th February 
1641-2, it is stated "And for the Burro we of Arrundell wee have 
receaved noe Accompt from them," etc. 

The care which was taken in order that none should pass unrecorded 
who refused to take the Protestation, or were absent, or suffering 
from sickness, etc., when it was tendered, may be gathered from the 
number of non-protesting Roman Catholics reported, with which I 
have dealt fully later, and from the following references relating 
to absentees : — 

Boxgrovo (p. 37); " There be non as have not taken this Protesta- 
cion, but only Thomas Browne, William Hartley, & Thomas Simmons 
who is very sieke." 

Chichester Cathedral Close (p. 46); "William Aldrige & Durant 
Hunt, two of y^ inhabitants of y® said Claus, did not take y^ Protesta-

Rectors of St. Olave and St. Andrew respectively and their names 
occur in "The retourne of the Mair & Justices of y^ Citty " (p. 44).

INTRODUCTION. XI 

Master affirmetli) he hath taken this Protestation." The name of 
"Eichard Flott " occurs in the Return for Aldingbourne (p. 19). 

As another instance of the careful way in which the Returns appear to 
have been made, the annexed memorandum written by the Minister of 
Donnington at the foot of his Return (p. 71) maybe cited, "These 
are to certifie, That I my selfe tooke the Protestation before Edward 
Higgins, Esq', Justice of the Peace, viz. Febru : H''' ; And upon Joh : 
Brags Informacion [he was one of the churchwardens] I doe boleeve 
that the Partyes herein named have also taken the Protestation (though 
I my self were not personally present), in regard of my present 
infirmity." 

That the principal object of the Protestation was not only to support 
the Protestant Religion, but also to discover Roman Catholics cannot 
be doubted, and this view seems to have been grasped by several of the 
Sussex Clergy, as may be gathered from statements made in some of the 
Returns. Thus in the Return for Binderton (p. 32), "There is noe 
Recusant Papist, or any other in this Parish, that refused to make this 
Protestation." The Vicar of West Dean (p. 70) reported, "We have 
no recusant Papist in our Parrish," etc., and in the Return for Iping 
(p. 105) it is recorded, "There is noe Popish Recusant Inhabitinge 
within this Parrish," etc., while the Rector of Parham (p. 135), 
after giving the names of absentees, mentions, "We have no Papists 
nor other sectaries in our Parish." Again the Rector of Treyford ctim 
Didling (p. 182) adds, "And as concerninge Popish & Romish 
recusants, we have none dwelling or abiding with us," and in the Return 
for Wiggonholt cum Qreatham (p. 194), following more the wording 
of the Protestation, it is recorded, "And there is not any in this 
Parish who are Popishly addicted, or any way disaffected to the 
reformed Protestant Religion, expressed in the doctrine of the Church 
of England, against all Popery and Popish Innovations." 

For those persons who professed the Roman Catholic Religion, the 
position must have been a trying one. Some appear to have accepted 
what seemed to be the inevitable and taken the Protestation, and it is 
probable that the lists of protesters contain names of many Roman 
Catholics who adopted this course. Others at first refused, but relenting 
took it, possibly considering discretion to be the better part of valour. 
Again others were ready to take it, omitting only that part relating to 



XU WEST SUSSEX PROTESTATION RETUENS. 

religion, while some appear to have hit upon the expedient of not 
being at home. In illustration of the above, the following extracts 
may be cited : — 

Angmering (p. 21); "All taken y^ Protestation . . . except 
William Bui-gess, a Popish Eecusant who refused to take it." 

Chichester, St. Pancras, without the City (p. 52); "James Druett, 
Alehouse keeper, a Popish Recusant, hath Refused to take this Pro- 
testacion." 

Chichester; St. Peter- the Great (p. 56) ; " The Persons refusing, 
George Lewknor, George Mathees, junior, John Winter, Recusants." 

Clapham (p. 61); " Som of Michelgrove Howse take itt not of us, 
wee not findinge y"" att home ; " this must have referred to the Shell eys, 
who were Roman Catholics. 

Cocking (p. 63); "The names of such Persons as have not taken 
this Protestation, Francis Complin, Recusant, George Miclienor, his 
servant." 

Easehourne (pp. 75 and 76) ; Following the list of those persons who 
had taken the Protestation are five names under this heading, " The 
names of Recusantes subscribing to this Protestation and taking it 
wholy," while under "Recusantes absent" are four names. The 
rest of the Beturn, which is crossed out, is headed " The names of 
Recusantes refusing to take the whole Protestation according to the 
Prescript forme ; " fourteen names are given and the following note : 
"The Recusantes abovewritten doe refuse to subscribe to this clause 
of the Protestation, viz., ' The true Protestant Religion expressed in the 
doctrine of the church of England against all Popery w*in this Realme 
contrary to the same doctrine.' All the other part of the Protestation 
thejf have already taken & have subscribd unto it." The large 
number of Roman Catholics, whose names aj)pear in the Returns for 
Easebourne and Midhurst, was doubtless owing to the Browne -family 
of Cowdray being of that Faith. 

Ileyshot (p. 97); " Andrico Hammon, Papist," did not protest. 

Horsham (p. 102); "These whose names are under written have 
refused to take the Protestacion, viz', John Wakeman, William Nash, 
Thomas Edden, Popish Recusants." 



INTRODUCTION. Xlll 

Ifield (p. 104) ; " None refuseing but James Hircombe." 

Linclwiere (p. 115); At the foot of the Return is this note, " Thomas 
Ailing, a Popish recusant, absent & hath not soe [?] taken this Pro- 
testacion, being an Inhabitant of Lynchmere aforesaid etc." This is 
crossed out, and as the name of "Thomas Ayling" occurs last in the 
list of protesters, he probably changed his mind and his name was 
added to the Bet urn. 

Midhurst (pp. 127 and 128); Following the list " of such as have 
taken the Protestation," is another headed " The names of such 
Eecusant Papists as refuse to take y^ Protestation in Midhurst." This 
list, which as well as the heading, is crossed out, contains fifty- 
four names. It appears from an indorsement that the Protestation 
was taken "y*^ 18 of February." On another sheet are two lists; the 
first, which contains thirty-five names, is headed "The names of such 
Pajiists as have taken this Protestation February 20"" 1641, in Mid- 
hurst." The second, which contains nineteen names, is headed " The 
names of such Recusant Papists as have refused to take this Protesta- 
tion February 20"' 1641, in Midhurst." It is interesting to note that 
the deleted list contains the same number of names as is to be found 
in the two substituted ones when added together, and further that the 
names are those of the same persons. This shows that a majority 
of the non-protesting Roman Catholics of Midhurst of the 18th of 
February took the Protestation two days after. 

Racton (p. 143) ; The names of two Popish Recusants occur in the 
Return iox this parish; one is given as "Mar. Mathewes, recusant, 
absent," but it would seem from an altered paragraph that both he 
and " Eichard Baker, a Popish recusant, who is [_altered to ' are '] 
willing to Protest this present Protestacion, only leaving out as farr as 
yt concerneth his Religion." 

Rogatc (p. 145); " AVilliam Eldridge, a Poore Popish recusant, 
refuseth onely to take that Part of the Protestation touchiuge Religion." 

Shipley (p. 153); The last name on the list is that of "Thomas 
Banfild," which is preceded by the word " Negate 

Slindon (p. 158); "Their are none other within the said Parish as

Stedham (p. 163) ; The first name in the Return for this parish is 
that of " M"^ William Coldham, se.," while at the foot is this 
memorandum, " For the three elder sonnes of M"" William Coldham, 
M"^ William, M'^ Richard, M"" Anthony, Popish Recusantes, there were 
none of them at home at the same time." 

Warnham (p. 187); Under the general heading, "The names of 
those w""^ have not taken the Protestation," are the following Roman 
Catholics: "John Kempe, gentl. ; Henry, AVilliam, two servants; an 
olde man, whose name is not knowne, reported to be M™ Kemps unkle. 
These are recusants, who were warned to appeare, but came not." 

Wisborough Green (p. 196) ; " M"^ Thomas Smith, and John Smith, 
his Sonne" were entered on the 15th of February as refusing, but 
from a note it appears that they took "the Protestation" on the 19th. 

Woolavington (p. 200) ; " David White, a Popish recusant, hath 
refused to take this Protestacion, & William Dobbing, another Popish 
recusant, would not be fownd." 

Amongst the protesters having unusual christian names may be men- 
tioned "Quintilian Summers," of Bar nham (p. 26); "Granado Chester," 
rector oiBroachvater, and " Granado Chester, parvo " (pp. 38 and 39) ; 
" Aquila Cruso " and " Fregift Culins," both of St. Peter the Great, 
Chichester {-p-p. 53 and 55); " Stanislaus Browne, gent." and "Claudius 
Malbranke," both of Easehournc (p. 75); "Prosper Raynsford," of 
Henfield (p. 95); " Andrico Hammon," of Heyshot (p. 97); " Euticus 
Delton," of Horsham {p. 98); " Dominacle Fames," of Loxioood {p.

" Gersham Butcher, jun.," both of Petworth (pp. 137 aJid 138) ; 
" Shrimtin Aburra " and " Eusebius Hayes," both of Sidleshavi (j)p. 
155 and 156); " Herda Davie," of Slindon (p. 158); " Spinola

INTRODUCTION. XV 

By way of illustration of the Steyning ProtestatioJi Return (pp. 164 
and 165), dated the 25th of February, 1641-2, 1 have copied the names 
of all those inhabitants of the parish who subscribed to the Solemn 
League and Covenant (pp. 166 and 167) on the 24th of May, 1643. 
The list is taken from a volume preserved in the church, containing 
Churchwardens' Accounts, Vestry Minutes, etc. (p. 166). 

The value of the Beturns as giving a clue to the population of the 
various parishes has been already alluded to.® It is interesting to 
note that the Beturn containing the largest number of names is the 
one for Horsham (pp. 97 to 102), with a total of yii'e Immdred and 
nine ; of these names one hundred and sixty-nine appear to be of 
persons within the Borough, while the rest are those of parishioners 
only. The eleven other largest parochial Returns are Petworth, 419; 
St. Peter the Great, Chichester, 316, being exclusive of four inhabi- 
tants of the Cathedral Close, who are entered in the St. Peter's Beturn, 
and also twenty -six other inhabitants of the Close, who took the 
Protestation in the choir of the Cathedral ; Kirdford, 309 ; Midhurst, 
271 ; Westbourne, 236 ; Billingshurst, 225 ; Pulborough, 220 ; 
Steyning, 204; South Harting, 199; Wisborough Green, 181, and 
West Grinstead, 179, The aggregate of the Chichester parishes is 
about 772. The Beturn for North Marden (p. 123) has the smallest 
number of names, seven in all ; it is unique amongst the Sussex ones, 
for the Rector not only gives the names of his parishioners who took 
the Protestation, but also a list of the " Names of the men Inhabitants 
of the Parish of North Marden." This contains ten names only 
(exclusive of the Rector's) ; seven of these are the same names as in 
the list of protesters, to which number may be added: " Tho : 
Trunlett [or Trimlet] Churchwarden," and " Fran : James," the 
worthy Rector, who both had previously taken the Protestation at 
Chichester before the Justices. The two non -protesters were " William 
Jenman " who " is under eighteen yeers old," and " Timothy Arnold " 
who "is dumb & speechless." 

The index of Surnames and Places, in which all the more important 
variations in the spelling of the former are given, will facilitate 
reference to the work for genealogical purposes. In consequence of 
indexing only the Surnames of persons, the bulk of the index, which 

8 Ante, p. ii. 



XVI WEST SUSSEX PROTESTATION RETURNS. 

is still considerable, has been reduced, yet it is hoped without 
materially detracting from its usefulness. It seems not unreasonable 
to suppose that the genealogical inquirer would but seldom want to 
look for a particular individual, the contrary of which is often the case 
when searching a parish register, while, as has been already pointed 
out, the location of the off -shoots of a family must save many useless 
searches ; this can be readily ascertained from the index of Surnames. 
Such corrections as it has been necessary to make in the lists of names, 
since they were printed, are given in the Corrigenda (p. xvii) and 
attention is also called in the index to all of these. 

In conclusion I would suggest that the respective Beturns might 
well find a place in the Histories of AVest Sussex Parishes yet to be 
written, while the names of Incumbents, Curates and Parochial 
Officers, etc., mentioned therein, will help to complete local lists which 
are necessarily often imperfect. Finally, my thanks are specially due 
to H. P. St. John, Esq., of the House of Lords Journal Office, for 
the facilities afforded me when copying the Beturns, also to W. Powell 
Breach, Esq., J. P., of Steyniug, for making arrangements for me to 
transcribe the list of the inhabitants of that town, who in 1643 took 
the "Solemn League and Covenant," and to W. Paley Baildon, 
Esq., F.S.A., for many valuable suggestions and for kindly assisting 
me whilst passing the work through the press.

THE PROTESTATION, 

WITH THE OEDER AND EESOLUTIONS OF THE 
HOUSE OF COMMONS THEREON. 



The Return for the parish of Tangmere, Sussex [I.F. 4], is written 
on the back of the original printed sheet of paper containing the 
Protestation, with the Resolutions, etc., sent down from the House of 
Commons. The sheet measures 14} inches in length by Hi in width. 
The following is a verbatim et literatim copy of the printed matter.* 



Die Mercurii 5 Maii 1641, 

IT is this day Ordered by the House of Commons now assembled in 
Parliament, That the Preamble, together with the Pro | testation, 
which the Members of this House made the third of May, shall 
be forthwith Printed, and the Copies Printed | brought to the Clark 
of the said House, to attest under his hand, to the end that the 
Knights, Citizens, and Burgesses may send | them down to the Sheriffs 
and Justices of Peace of the severall Shires, and to the Citizens and 
Burgesses of the severall Cities, | Boroughs, and CinCj[ue Ports, 
respectively. And the Knights, Citizens, and Burgesses, are to 
intimate unto the Shires, Cities, Bo | roughs, and Cinque Ports, with 
what willingnesse all the Members of this House made this Protesta- 
tion : And further to signi | fie, that as they justifie the taking of it in 
themselves, so they cannot but approve it in all such as shall take it. 

WE the Knights, Citizens, and Burgesses of the Commons house in 
Parliament, finding, to the great grief of our hearts, | that the 
designes of the Priests and Jesuites, and other Adherents to 
the See of Home, have of late been more boldly and | frequently put 
in practice then formerly, to the undermining and danger of the ruiue 
of the true reformed Protestant | Religion in His Majesties Dominions 
established : And finding also that there have been, and having just 
cause to suspect that | there still are, even during this sitting in 
Parliament, indeavours to subvert the fundamentall Laws of England 

* See p. 3, and also under Chichester, City of, and Chichester Cathedi-al-Close,

[The Photestatiox.] 

and Ireland, and 1 to introduce tlie exercise of an Arbitrary and 
Tyrannicall Government, by most pernicious and wicked Councels, 
Practises, | Plots, and Conspiracies : And that the long intermission, 
and unhappy breach of Parliaments, hath occasioned man}' illegall 
Tax I atious, whereupon the Subject hath been prosecuted and grieved: 
And that divers Innovations and Superstitions have been ( brought 
into the Church; multitudes driven out of His Majesties Dominions; 
Jealousies raised and fomented betwixt the King | and His People ; a 
Popish Army leavied in Ireland, and two Armies brought into the 
bowels of this Kingdome, to the hazard of | His Majesties Eoyall 
Person, the consumption of the Revenues of the Crown, and Treasure 
of this Kingdome : And lastly, find | iug great cause of Jealousie, 
that indeavours have been, and are used to bring the English Army 
into a misunderstanding of this | Parliament, thereby to incline the 
Army, with force to bring to passe those wicked Councels, Have 
therefore thought good to | joyn our selves in a Declaration of our 
united Affections and Eesolutions, and to make this ensuing Protesta- 
tion. 

IA.B. do in the presence of Almighty God, Promise, Vow and 
Protest, to maintain and defend, as far as lawfully I | may, 
with my life, power, and estate, the true Reformed Protestant 
Religion, expressed in the Doctrine of the Church | of England 
against all Popery and Popish Innovations within this Realm, 
contrary to the same Doctrine, and accor | ding to the duty of my 
Allegiance, His Majesties Royall Person, Honour, and Estate ; 
As also the Power and Priviledges | of Parliament ; The lawful 
Rights and Liberties of the Subject, and everj^ person that 
maketli this Protestation, in what | soever he shall do in the 
lawful pursuance of the same. And to my power, and as far as 
lawfully I may, I will oppose, | and by all good wayes and means 
endeavour to bring to condigne punishment, all such as shall 
either by Force, Practise, | Councels, Plots, Conspiracies or other- 
wise, do any thing to the contrary of any thing in this present 
Protestation contai | ned. And further, that I shall in all just 
and Honourable wayes indeavour to preserve the Vnion and Peace 
between | the three Kingdoms of England, Scotland, and Ireland ; 
And neither for hope, fear, nor other respect, shall relinquish 
this I Promise, Vow, and Protestation. 

WHereas some doubts have been raised by several persons out 
of this House, concerning the meaning of these words | con- 
tained in the Protestation lately made by the Members of this 
House, {viz.) The true reformed Protestant Eeligion ex \ jJt'essed in 
the Doctrine of the Church of England against all Popery and Popish 
Innovations %oithin this Beahn, contrary to the same \ doctrine ; This 
House doth declare. That by those words, was and is meant, only 



WEST SUSSEX PROTESTATIOX RETURNS. 3 

[The Protestation.] 

the publike Doctrine professed in the said Church, | so farre as it is 
opposite to Popery and Popish Innovations ; And that the said words 
are not to be extended to the maintaining of | any form of Worship, 
Discipline, or Government, nor of any Kites or Ceremonies of the said 
Church of England. 

Die Veneris 30 : Julii 1641. 
Resolved upon the Question. 

THat this House doth conceiA^e that the Protestation made by 
them, is fit to be taken by every person that is well affected ] in 
Religion, and to the good of the Common-wealth ; And therefore 
doth declare, That what person soever shall not | take the Protestation, 
is unfit to beare Office in the Church or Common-wealth. 

Resolved upon the Question. 

THat the Knights, Citizens, and Burgesses, and Barons of the 
Cinque-Ports respectivel}', shall forthwith send down to the 
seve I rail places for which they serve, Copies of this Vote of 
the House, concerning the Protestation. 

Resolved upon the Question. 
That these Totes shall be Printed and Attested under the Clerks 
hand. 



Die Sabbati 8. Januarii, 1641. 
At the Committee of the House of Commons appointed to sit in 
London to consider of the safety of the Kingdome, and of | the 
City of Loudon, and of vindicating the Priviledges of Parliament. 

Resolved upon the Question. 

THat the actions of the Citizens of London, or of any other 
person whatsoever, for the defence of the Parliament, | or the 
Priviledges theieof, or the preservation of the Members thereof, 
are according to their duty, and to their late | Protestation, and the 
Lawes of this Kingdome. " And if any person shall arrest or trouble 
any of them, for so | doing, he is declared to be a publike enemy of 
the Common- wealth. | 

Resolved upon the Question. 
That this Vote shall be made known to the Common Councell of the 
City of London. 
John Wilde Sergeant at Law sitting in the Chaire of that Committee.

post), is also made on the back of the printed sheet sent down from 
the House of Commons. This printed copy of the Protestation and

[The Protestation.] 

"Resolutions differs from that upon whicTi the Eeturn for Tangmere is 
indorsed, in that it consists of the first four paragraphs only. It is 
headed with the Eoyal Arms, and it commences "Die Mercurii : 
5° Maii. 1641." The first paragraph is in Eoman letters, the second in 
black letter, the third, i.e., the Protestation, in Eoman letters, and the 
fourth, and last paragraph, commencing "Whereas some doubts," 
etc., and terminating " Eites and Cei-emonies of the said Church of 
England," is in black letter. The sheet measures 16 inches in length 
by 12 in width, and under the fourth paragraph is this statement 
"^ Imprinted at London by Eobert Barker, Printer to the Kings | most 
Excellent Majestie: And by the Assignes of John Bill. 1641." 
Another copy, identical with this one, is attached to the Eeturns for 
the City of Chichester (see j^ost).

BOSHAM. 



[CiiiciiESTEK liape, BosiiAM Hundred.'] 



[This Beturn. is 
I.L. 12 (2).' 



indorsed in 2:)encil "Parish not named. ? Sussex. 



It consists of written names on a sheet of thick paper, measuring 
22^ inches by 17^, and it is one of two Returns for Sussex, of " Places 
not Named ; " both are on a like make of thick paper and they are 
written bj^the same hand. Each bears the signature of " John Butt," 
and in neither is there any reference to the parish for which the Return 
was made. One "John Butt" was instituted Yicar of Bosham, 
according to Hennessy's Chichester Diocese Clergy Lists, in 1637, and 
it appears from Add. MS. Brit. Mus. 5699, that he was married there 
on the 14th Dec. in that year, as "John Butt, Vicar of Bosham," to 
" Susan Pullens." In 1639 "John Butt, B.A.," was instituted Vicar 
of Chidham. The Returns for both of these parishes are missing from 
the series, unless, as seems clear, the two Returns not named, 
are for Bosham and Chidham respectively. The first name in the 
Bosham Retui'n is that of " Christopher Pescodd ; " it is recorded in 
the Add. MS., above quoted, that "Mr. Christopher Pescod " was 
married at Bosham, on 29th Sept., 1639, and it would seem again on 
24th of May, 1641, as "Christopher Pescod." The second name in 
the Return is that of "Henry Grigge, ju.," and amongst the burial 
entries from Bosham parish registers for the year 1652, given in the 
same MS., is that of "Henry Grigg, Senior." The will of " Henry 
Grigg, Sen.," of Bosham, co. Sussex, yeoman, dated 7th of May, 1652, 
was proved in P.C.C, on 28th of June in the same year [Bowyer, fa. 
132), by Thomas Grigg, the son and executor, and the will of Henry 
Grigg, of Bossame, co. Sussex, gentleman, dated 12th of Nov., 1654, 
was proved in P.C.C. 1st of July, 1658 {Berkley, fo. 255), by Catharine 
Grigg, the relict and sole executrix. See also ante, p. 16.]

Protestation LA. 4." Signatures and marks on paper. This sheet is 
now placed with, and made to form part of, the Eeturn for that paj-ish, 
which is clearly an error, for the A'^icar of AVashington in 1641-2 was 
Nicholas Garbrand, S.T.B., and he signed that Eeturn [as Eector]. 
According to Hennessy's Chichester Diocese Clergy Lists, he was 
instituted Vicar of Washington in 1638. The Eector of Broadwater in 
1641-2 was Granado Chester, who was instituted in 1624-5, and as 
this sheet is signed by him, it is evidently the concluding one of the 
licturn for Broadwater, which would be otherwise incomplete.]

HARTING, SOUTH. 

[CiiicnESTEK Bape, Dumpford Hundred.'] 

[TJiis Ficturn is indorsed in pencil ''Place Unnamed, perhaps 
Linch, Chich. ; Easb. ; I.J. 14." The suggestion is clearly an error, 
for the list of names is much too long a one for a small parish such 
as Linch. This Return is doubtless for the extensive and important 
parish of South Harting, which otherwise is missing from the series ; 
it consists of written names on two sheets of paper pinned together, 
so as to form one sheet. A small piece of the upper sinister corner of 
the first sheet is torn off, which contained, inter alia, the name of the 
parish, and the edges on the sinister side of both sheets are much 
decayed. The first sheet has five columns of names, the surnames in 
the last column of which are imperfect. The evidence proving this 
Return (which does not bear any Minister's signature) to be that for 
South Harting is as follows : Amongst the entries from South Harting 
parish registers noted by Sir William Burrell, in what is now xidd. 
MS. Brit. Mils. 5699, are several of the Cliffe family; "William 
Clyffe" was buried 11th of Feb., 1655, and the name of "William 
Cliffe" occurs in the Return, as also that of "John Cliffe," One 
"John Apytt," was buried 5th of April, 1569, and on the 2nd of 
June, 1664, " Judith Ijewkenor," which surnames also occur in the list. 
The will of "John AVilde of Eastharting in the County of Sussex, 
yeoman," dated 26th of March, 16 Chas., 1640, in which he mentions 
" My daughter Mary Frj- " and " John Fry my godsone," was proved 
in the Consistory Court of Chichester on 7th April, 1646 [Vol. xxi., fo. 
78h). Thomas Fowler, of the parish of Harting in Sussex, the elder, 
Innholder, in his will dated 20tli of November, 1649, also mentions his 
godson, Richard Fry ; this will was proved in the same Court on the 
5th of Feb., 1649-50 ( Vol. xxi., fo. 330b). The names of John Wilde, 
both senior and junior, and others of the name appear in the Return, 
as also Thomas Fowler, senior and junior, and one Clement Frye.'^' 
The will of " Elenor Heather of South Hartinge in the County of 
Sussex, widdowe," dated 15th of Sept., 1653, was proved in the P.C.C. 
on the 2nd of Feb., 1653-4 {Alchin, fo. 371), by George and Elenor, 
the son and daughter, executors, whilst the names of George and 
Thomas Heather are in list of protesters. Finally amongst the 
several occurrencies, in the Return of the name of Pitt, one John 
Pitt is described as "of Uppton," which place is probably identical 
with " Upperton Farm," marked in the one inch scale Ordnance Map, 
as at West Harting, a hamlet in South Harting. See also ante, p. 10.] 

* The following note in further ideiitificatiou of this Return, is kindly contri- 
buted by Jlr. Geo. S. Fry. It appears from Chancery Proceedings, Bills and 
Answers, Chas. I., No. 50-140, in Fry v. Fry, that the will of Clement Fry of 
Harting, yeoman, was dated 2Sth of March, 16.59, and that he was jnst dead at 
the passing of the Bill, viz., 1661. The will does not ajipear to be in P.C.C, or 
in the Consistory Coui't of Chichester, so probably it was not proved.

EUSTINGTON. 



[Arundel Bape, Poling Hundred.'} 

[This Return is indorsed in pencil " West Preston, Poling H., 
H.Q. 9." It consists of written names on paper, and although it is 
headed " Preston, West," as heloiv, it would seem that it must be really 
the Return for Rustington, which parish is otherwise missing from the 
series. West Preston is not a parish. Horsfield, in his History of 
Sussex, states under Rustington (Vol. II., p. 135), that "The manor 
and hamlet of West Preston lie at the eastern extremity of this 
parish," and in dealing with the manors in the parish, he calls it " the 
small manor of West Preston." The Return is attested, inter alia, by 
Thomas Upperton, as churchwarden, who is probably identical with 
Thomas Upperton, of Rustington, co. Sussex, yeoman, whose will, dated 
22nd of May 1657, was proved in P.C.C. on 24th of July in the same 
year {Euthen, fo. 278), by Thomas Upperton, one of the executors, 
power reserved to John Kewell, the other executor. One Roger Ashton 
certifies this Return as " Curate," and he also signs the Return for the 
adjoining parish of East Preston, in the same capacity.]

WEST SUSSEX PROTESTATION RETURNS. 



[Steyning.] 

[Bj/ way of illustration of the Steyning Protestation Beturn as 
printed above, I have copied the subjoined names of all those inhabi- 
tants of the parish loho subscribed to the " Solemn League and 
Covenant " in the folloioing year. The list is taken from a volume 
preserved in the church, containing Ghurchtvardens^ Accounts, Vestry 
Minutes, etc. The book was rebound in recent years, and was then 
incorrectly lettered on the back "Parish Eegister, S' Andrew's Churcli, 
Steyning."] 

[Heading.^ 

A Soleni League and Covenant for Reformation & Defence of 
Religion, tlie Honnour & Happines of the King, and the Peace & 
Safety of the three Kingdomes of England, Scotland & L-eland, Takin 
by the Parishoners of the Parish of Steninge whoss Names are under 
ritten, the 24 Maiy, 1643. 

IHere follotvs the " Solemn League and Covenant " entered at length, 
whicli fills two pages of the book {a large folio). It commences "Wee, 
woohs Names are under ritten, by the Providence of god beinge under 
one Kinge and beinge of one Reformed Religione," etc., and terminates 
" To joine for the same and like Association and Covenant, to the glory 
of god, the Inlargment of the Kingdom of Jesuss christ, & the peas 
& Tranquility of Christian Kingdomes & Commonwealths." Imme- 
diately following the above are tlie Nantes of those taking the " Solemn 
League and Covenant," which consist of signatures, marks, and 
apparently some written names ; many of these are difficult to decipher.~\

INDEX or SUENAMES and PLACES. 



INDEX OF SUENAMES and PLACES. 



The Names of Places are printed in Italics. 

The Surnames of Persons are indexed as far as possible under the 
best form of spelling occurring ; to these the more important variations 
are annexed, ■which are also inserted in the index with cross references. 
The Names in the Betitrns being for the most part written words, and 
not signatures, the spelling is to a great extent phonetic, and at the 
caprice of the respective writers. This renders it impossible to 
differentiate between such names as Ailewin, Ailing, Allwin, Ayline, 
etc., Gittens, Gittence, Githens, Guytens, etc., and also such names 
as are sometimes spelt with a final s, such as Hill, Hyll, Hiles, Hilles, 
Hillis, and Parson, Parsons, etc. 

The figures in brackets indicate the number of times a name occurs 
on a page, but in referring to the page or pages, where the Returns 
for the respective parishes are given, the name of each parish is 
indexed once only. 

The corrections given under Corrigenda {see ante) are noted in the 
index.
