COUNCIL FOR 1870-71. 


















FORTY-SIX years had elapsed after Flower's 
Heraldic Visitation of Lancashire, in the early part 
of the reign of queen Elizabeth, before another Visitation 
was made in the early part of the reign of her successor. 
In the interval, education and commerce had effected 
great changes in the state of society, and the learned 
works on heraldry, genealogy and ceremonies, by Glover, 
Segar, Camden and Milles, had imparted much impor- 
tance to the study of those feudal subjects. It was held 
that heraldic distinctions preserved the remembrance 
of military prowess, supported hereditary rank, and 
illustrated national history and antiquities. Churches 
and castles, monuments, windows and pavements, family 
bearings and numismatics, were all connected with the 
study of heraldry. It thus became an object of interest 
to many of the old territorial families publicly to record 
their title to their armorial bearings, and to register their 
descents when it had not already been done, and to per- 
petuate it when it had. But this observance was not

general, especially in Lancashire. The number of fami- 
lies who answered the summons of the heralds continued 
very slowly to increase, notwithstanding the increase of 
new and opulent families. At the first visitation in 1533 
there had been recorded the arms and descents of thirty- 
three houses; at the second visitation in 1567 the num- 
ber had increased to one hundred and twelve; and in the 
third visitation in 1613 to one hundred and twenty-four. 
But as a proof of the little general interest felt in the 
matter in Lancashire, fifty-six families who had appeared 
in 1567, absented themselves in 1613, and only forty- 
three families appeared, by their representatives, at both 
the visitations ; so that in a period of nearly half a century 
only twenty-two fresh entries were made, and of these, 
two, at least, ought to have been recorded in the visita- 
tion of Cheshire, 1 one in that of Middlesex, 2 and another, 3 
perhaps, not at all. 

There were two qualifications which guided the heralds 
in summoning gentlemen to appear before them at the 
visitations. The one was that the individual should be 
found in the list of the great freeholders of the county, 
and the other that he should be eligible to serve on grand 
juries. On these grounds we seldom meet with the 
clergy at the visitations, although after the reformation, 
as a rule, they used arms and not merely ecclesiastical 
badges and devices. Lancashire had only two noblemen 
when this visitation was made, but they did not appear

by deputy or otherwise, and the reason is obvious. The 
peerage has always been under the jurisdiction of Garter, 
whose rule is quite independent of Clarencieux or Norroy, 
and no commission was ever issued to him to "visit." 
The provincial kings, Clarencieux and Norroy, had de- 
fined and limited powers, and were only authorized to 
take notices of gentlemen holding rank inferior to that 
of the peerage. 

In this Visitation the only visible progress or improve- 
ment is to be found in the mode of registration, the nar- 
rative form being abandoned, and the tabular form intro- 
duced. The statements for the most part are still vague 
and meagre, and the results unsatisfactory, dates and docu- 
ments being generally avoided, or when introduced they 
sometimes elude the attempt to prove their authenticity 
or to confute their genuineness. Norroy carried out the 
existing system and there was no divergence from it 
for at least half a century; and then came a change for 
the better, which has continued, with improvements, to 
the present time. 

The Visitation book now printed, being the original 
manuscript, has not been collated with an official copy by 
St. George remaining in the Heralds' college, although 
the genealogies printed on pp. 130-135 are supplied from 
it, as they are omitted in the Harleian volume. It would 
involve the expenditure of much time and labour to 
collate the various transcripts of the several visitations 
extant at the same period, and almost futile to attempt to 
account for the marvellous discrepancies that occur in them 

vi Introduction. 

all. From these discrepancies arises the uncertainty of 
genealogical information at almost any former time. It 
may perhaps be admitted without dispute, that unless 
pedigrees have been well sifted, according to the present 
usage of the College of arms, and subjected almost to 
legal proof by documentary evidence, extraneous to viva 
voce testimony (which was the general mode of taking 
information at the visitations), little or no dependence 
can be placed upon them. Traditionary evidence and 
oral communications are insufficient proof. Daily expe- 
rience shows that different members of the same family, 
in giving testimony of their arms and descent, make 
statements equally conflicting and equally absurd with 
those made at this visitation ; and when the stern test 
of contemporaneous documentary proof is applied, it is 
not unfrequently found that the whole fabric of an old 
pedigree 4 is in a state of very doubtful security. 

It is apparent that at this visitation the heads of houses 
themselves did not always see to the correct registration 
of their arms and descents. They commissioned their 
attorneys 5 or stewards 6 or a younger son 7 to record such 
evidence as they had at hand, and these officials some- 
times attested by their signature the correctness of their 
statements, doubtless made to the best of their knowledge, 
information, and belief, the first however being often super- 
ficial, the next small, and the last capacious. Where the 
pedigrees are not authenticated by the signature of the

head of the family who made the entry, the errors appear 
to be the most startling ; and there is sometimes a sad 
absence of information even where the squire himself 
appeared. A gentleman attested his genealogy of eight 
lineal descents, but entered on the record neither the 
name of his wife nor his mother, nor the name of one 
female ancestor except that of a great heiress who had 
conveyed her estate to his family about two centuries 
before, and he had to retire from the court with the 
mortifying information that he had no allowance of 
arms. 8 In two pedigrees, the one of fifteen 9 and the 
other of eight 10 generations in direct lineal descent, 
only one marriage in each case is recorded. There 
are nine generations of the Radcliffes on record without 
the name of one wife," and in the third generation 
of the Hoghtons the eldest son is named Thomas, 12 
and he having no heir male is said to have been succeeded 
by his brother bearing the same Christian name, being the 
sons of the same parents, whereas we know from another 
source that they were brothers in half-blood only. Ano- 
ther instance of two sons of the same father bearing the 
same Christian name 13 is accurately recorded by the intel- 
ligent head of the house, who, like his grandfather, an old 
and sagacious lawyer, who had died three years before, 
was fully alive to the importance of legal evidence. 14 An

viii Introduction. 

error which seems to be inexplicable is found in another 
pedigree, 15 where there are three sons living, two of them 
being named Thomas ; one of these is recorded as the 
" first" son, and aged a year and a half, the other as the 
"second" son, and the eldest son is described as being 
of the age of 1 2 years ; their parents being alive, and 
all their offspring being the grand-children of the attorney- 
general of the Duchy of Lancaster, and the father who 
verified these incongruous statements being a learned 
councillor at law. It seemed to be unnecessary to 
record that the four daughters of a gentleman were 
"co-heiresses" when the youngest was only two years 
of age and the parents still living. 16 These are passages 
which require no Ralph Brooke to parade a "Discoverie 
of errors," and will find no Camden to vindicate them. 
In one instance four generations of the same house were 
living at the time of the visitation, and the patriarch of 
the family at the age of 95 years ought to have supplied 
more copious evidence regarding his forbears. 17 

The sort of proof required and brought for the infor- 
mation of the heralds seems to have been various, but in 
the greater number of cases parole evidence was tendered 
and accepted. Bradshaw of Bradshaw produced two 
precious letters:' 8 one of them from Henry Percy, the first 
earl of Northumberland, K.G., the father of Hotspur, and 
with whom Bradshaw the young Lancashire soldier had 
probably served and fought at Chevy Chace and else-

where, in the reign of Richard II.; and the other letter 
was probably from sir William Harrington, the second 
and brave son of Nicholas Harrington of Huyton Hey, 
esq., in the time of Henry VI. These letters had been 
addressed to some members of the Bradshaw family who 
could not have their place assigned on the face of the 
pedigree, although the letters had been so carefully pre- 
served, but the result was satisfactory in another respect, 
as the old arms were recognized and entered, and it is to 
be regretted that the letters also were not "entered" 
in extenso. 

Travers brought his ancient muniments from the time 
of Edward I. to Henry VII. in proof of his descent and 
armorial rights, and the lineal succession was satisfactorily 
deduced, although the herald could not decide which of 
the two old seals containing arms, then presented to him, 
ought to be borne by the house. 19 

In one instance there is a reference to Holinshed, the 
historian, to establish a fact. 20 

Hindley produced his evidences and described his 
descent well for at least three centuries, but was not 
allowed to bear arms." 

Winckley also produced his charters from a remote 
age and proved succession, but the legend of an ancient 
seal of arms which was inspected being partly decayed 
or defaced, the armorial bearing was not allowed." 

Ashhurst also was able to bring forward the treasures

from his muniment chest 23 and to prove a great deal, being 
probably proud of his descent; so that when the head of 
an old house felt an interest in the subject, streams of 
evidence poured in and the cause of heraldry and gene- 
alogy was upheld in what has been considered its dazzling 
and palmy age. 

But few gentlemen were as pretentious and ambitious 
as Gellibrand, who mounted up to the Norman Conquest 
and supported himself in his airy flight and shadowy 
claim by bringing forward a document, with an exact 
date, of the nth century "5 W. Conq.," 24 which 
might perchance be proof positive to Norroy of either 
simple credulity or of incautious audacity on the squire's 
part touching the evidence submitted. 

The heralds of 1533 and 1613 appear alike to have 
waged war with the wealthy family of Holt of Stubley and 
Castleton, who could fairly boast of high local rank and 
influence. ls At the first named visitation Tonge recorded 
that " Robart Holt of Stubley had marrd an ould woman 
and woud not enter" his pedigree, which, notwithstanding, 
was entered by somebody in 1 56j* 6 and "the ould woman" 
had certainly female issue. Robert, the nephew and heir 
male of Robert Holt the elder, had, also, only surviving 
daughters, the eldest of whom, Mary, married her kins- 
man, Charles Holt, and continued the line. This Charles 
Holt's father is called a "yeaman," and in the estimation 
of a herald of that day such he might be ; but he was

assuredly "descended out of the house of Stubley," and 
had a very considerable estate in the parish of Bury, al- 
though he might lack the advantage of the education and 
social position of his cousin, the head of the house in 
Rochdale parish, who was an active justice of the peace 
in the reign of Henry VIII., and connected by descent 
and marriage with some good knightly families. This 
is an instance of the arbitrary manner in which country 
gentlemen were sometimes treated by the kings of 
arms. Charles Holt of Stubley, jure uxoris, and re- 
lated to her in the third degree of consanguinity, was 
not an illiterate man, as he wrote a fair hand ; intelli- 
gently defended the just rights of the poor chapels of 
Saddleworth and Milnrow in 1561 ; boldly opposed the 
wrongful dealing of sir John Byron with church pro- 
perty ; promoted the principles of the Reformation ; and 
was one of archbishop Parker's correspondents on the 
founding of Rochdale grammar school. It is to be 
noticed that the herald styles the family in 1613, "but 
yeamen" and having " noe coat at all," and yet Charles 
Holt himself had arms allowed by Flower in i^7^ 7 

The statement of the marriage of Nicholas Townley 28 is 
singularly incorrect, and some years ago proved a diffi- 
culty to an indefatigable genealogist, who was tracing his 
family descent. After a laborious investigation of evi- 
dences, public and private, the difficulty, I have reason to 
know, was ultimately surmounted, and St. George's egre-

gious error was rectified to the satisfaction of his able suc- 
cessor, sir Charles G. Young, Garter. Nicholas Townley 
married Lettice, daughter and coheiress of William Tal- 
bot of Shuttleworth hall, near Padiham, and the widow of 
Edmund Asheton of Chaderton, esq. Of the three pedi- 
grees of Townley, 29 one records the descendants of a 
collateral of the Royle family, settled at Littleton, co. 
Middlesex, and seems out of place in a visitation of 

The herald who visited Lancashire in 1613 was Richard 
St. George, esq., who claimed to be descended from a 
family of his name who had held the manor of Hatley 
St. George in Cambridgeshire during five centuries, and 
who had become connected by marriage with several dis- 
tinguished and noble houses. He was a man of respect- 
able learning, and had acquired considerable heraldic 
knowledge. In the year 1602 his great ambition was 
gratified on his being appointed a Pursuivant extraor- 
dinary. His rise was rapid, as in the same year he 
became Windsor herald by patent dated i8th December 
45 Elizabeth 1602, and Norroy by signet in January 
1 603-4, but his patent for that office was not dated until 
24th January 1607, and on the I7th December 1623 he 
was created Clarencieux by patent. On the 28th Sep- 
tember 1616 he received the honour of knighthood. 
Whilst Norroy he was indefatigable in personally holding 
visitations . in various counties, being attended by his

deputies. In 1613 his son Henry, who two years be- 
fore had purchased the office of Blue Mantle of his 
predecessor, accompanied his father into Lancashire, and 
some of the pedigrees and tricking of arms in the Visita- 
tion book now printed are written and tricked by him. 
Sir Richard St. George has the reputation, in the College 
of arms, of having been an able and industrious officer, 
possessed of ability to grasp a complicated subject of 
descent, and to master its details and legal bearings in 
a clear and satisfactory manner. He had the privilege 
of ranking amongst his personal friends, sir Robert Cot- 
ton, Camden, Spelman and Weaver, all kindred spirits, 
and all cultivating the same branches of learning. 

He died at his house in High Holborn, co. Middlesex, 
on Whitsunday, the i ;th May 1635, and was buried in the 
chancel of St. Andrew's church, Holborn, on the Friday 
following. His will was proved 26th May 1635 in the 
Prerogative court of Canterbury (83 Sadler), of which he 
made his eldest son (afterwards Garter) sole executor. 
He married Elizabeth, eldest daughter of Nicholas St. 
John of Lidyard Tregoza, co. Wilts, esq., ancestor of the 
viscounts St. John and Bolinbroke, by whom he had issue 
five sons and three daughters. Of these the eldest son, 
Sir Henry St. George, knighted by the king of Sweden, 
was a zealous royalist, attended upon the king at Oxford, 
was there created D.C.L., and, having risen through all the 
gradations of the College of arms, became Garter. 30 He

1635, Garter 1644, and died the same year. 

xiv Introduction. 

seems to have been well skilled in the duties of his pro- 
fession which were afterwards discharged by his two sons, 
sir Thomas 31 and sir Henry, 32 who both rose successively 
to the high office of Garter. The fourth son of sir 
Richard settled in Ireland as Ulster king of arms, was 
knighted, and had a son Oliver created a baronet. 
George, eldest son of the baronet, was ennobled in 
1714-15 by the title of baron Hatley St. George, of the 
co. of Roscommon, and the family long flourished in 
Ireland. 33 

Although this Visitation was made in the year 1613, 
there are a few additions and interpolations of a more 
recent date, which were not made by the visiting heralds, 
Norroy and Blue Mantle. The pedigrees are, however, 
chiefly in the handwriting of sir Richard St. George, and 
some are written by his son. There are also a few 
additions of arms and some continuations to divers 
descents, which will be easily perceived, being the handy- 
work of John Withie, who, like Camden's father, was a 
painter-stainer, 34 but of whom nothing more is known. 
It may be feared that he had neither skilful training

nor sage experience to qualify him for the office he 
assumed. Of these additions reference may be made 
to the pedigree of Humfrey Chetham entered in i635, 35 
at which time the family arms were "confirmed" to 
the great Manchester benefactor by sir Henry St. 
George, Garter, who had upwards of twenty years 
before visited Lancashire as Blue Mantle. 

On the face of the pedigree of Preston of Furness 
manor 36 recorded by the head of the house, who gave in 
the information and signed the office book, the last 
generation was a subsequent addition, as there are the 
dates 1615, 1621 and 1623. 

Blundell of I nee Blundell did not complete his pedi- 
gree until the year 1614," which may account for the 
details being more exact and copious than many of the 
others, and also why it was not entered during the visita- 
tion of Norroy in Lancashire. This may also account 
for its not being verified by Mr. Blundell's signature. 

The pedigree of Walmesley 38 is not authenticated by 
any signature, and the date 1637 is an interpolation. 

The statements regarding Chadwick of Healey, 39 made 
apparently upon the authority of a judge and sustained 
by apparently legal and heraldic documents, although not 
authenticated or subscribed by the person who gave the

is erroneously stated to have been compiled by sir Richard St. George. 
He was dead at the time.

information, are altogether fabulous, and probably the 
"handy-work" of John Withie, as Dr. John Chadwick 
in 1613 is said to be chaplain to king Charles I. There 
is not a better evidenced pedigree in the College of arms, 
supported by a series of family deeds and authentic docu- 
ments, than that of Chadwick of Healey; and the attempt 
to unite the Nottinghamshire Chad wicks with those of 
Lancashire by colonel John Chadwick ; his pains-taking 
and well-informed son Charles Chadwick, F.S.A., and J. 
C. Brooke, esq., Somerset herald, was a complete failure. 
It was supposed by these exact and cautious genealo- 
gists that the Irish judge (whose son James married 
Mary, daughter and coheiress of archbishop Tillotson), 
was a very remote connection of Chadwick of Chadwick, 
but the connecting link was wanting. Their surname 
alone proved them of Lancashire and Saxon origin, and 
traditionally at least they were descended from Chadwick 
of Healey, bore the same silver martlets on their shield, 
and the same white lily for their crest. 40 

As this Visitation book became the property of the 
nation with lord Harley's library about the year 1753, it 
is obvious that the additions to the pedigree of Prest- 
wich of Hulme were made whilst the MS. was in his 
lordship's possession, about or a little after the year 
I744-5. 41 The writer was undoubtedly the Irish author

notwithstanding his Quixotic claim to the extinct baro- 
netcy which he assumed, shows by these manuscript notes 
that he had no legal title to it. He had been invested 
with a trust in the loan of the manuscript, and by making 
these additions it may be feared that he had abused 
the confidence placed in him. The amount of clumsy 
work done by him, here and elsewhere, exacts little

gent., and of his wife Agnes, daughter of James Heywood of Heywood, gent. He was educated at Christ's col- 
lege, Cambridge, and became B.A. in 1579, and M.A. in 1583. He afterwards removed to Emmanuel college, 
and was elected senior fellow at the first foundation of the college in 1584; was President of the college loth 
December 1588; took the degree of B.D. in 1589; was instituted to the rectory of Woodham Ferrers in Essex, 
30th January 1601 ; and was styled D.D. in 1607. He was chaplain to queen Elizabeth and to James I., and also 
to Thomas Howard earl of Suffolk. Having always had an affectionate regard for his Rochdale relatives, he died 
unmarried 4th May 1627, the probate of his will bearing date gth June 1625, by which he leaves to his nephew 
John Chadwick all his books and library, and all his estates in Woodham Ferrers, by name, Nutting, Motes, 
Foxholes, Dunsecouns, Archdens, Chandlers, Parler, and Jackes house; to his brother Robert Chadwick of 
Healey hall, his Geneva Bible in folio, and the Book of Martyrs, with one silver bowl double gilt, with cover over 
the top, to remain to his brother's wife ; to Richard Ashworth his servant, 2O/. a year for life, and then lo/. thereof to 
the poor within the hamlet of Healey ; to Edward Harris of Baddow in Essex, esq., 5/. In a letter to his brother 
Robert, dated 7th May 1616, he writes thus : "I sent Dick Entwisle to see your son John [afterwards rector of 
Standish] admitted, and I sent the tutor 6/., as at entrance there are extraordinary charges. I would have you pay 
him regularly 34?. \d. per quarter, and I will allow him io/. a year till he is master of arts, whether I live or die, 
and if that wont do, I will make an addition." Dr. Charles Chadwick had a brother John, rector of Darfield in 
the county of York, and prebendary of Southwell, also of Christ's college, Cambridge ; but as he did not become 
a doctor of divinity until the year 1614, the elder brother will be the individual who was to "give the herald fur- 
ther satisfaction" about the right of the family to bear arms. The proof was adduced, and the arms borne by this 
ancient family still remain, gules, an inescutcheon, within an orb of martlets, argent. This is the coat of Rackdale 
the Norman lords of Rochdale, differenced. The pedigree, with fifty quarterings, marshalled by John Charles 
Brooke, esq., Somerset herald, was recorded in the College of arms by John Chadwick, esq., and Charles Chad- 
wick, esq., F.S.A., his son, in the year 1788. - (Lane. MSS., vol. xiii. p. 136.) 

t Robert Chadwick of Healey, gent., son and heir of John Chadwick above named, and of his wife Agnes 
(marriage covenant dated 8th February 1551), married Alice, daughter of Edward Butterworth of Belfield hall, 
Rochdale, gent., in the year 1581 (marriage covenant dated 22nd October 1581). He rebuilt the old mansion of 
Healey in 1618, being much encouraged by his brother Dr. Charles Chadwick. He was buried in Rochdale 
church igth October 1625, ret. about 73 ; she, on the 8th December 1628, having had issue three sons and four 
daughters. (Lane. MSS., vol. xiii. p. 138.) 

i This name is unknown to me. 

Richard, son and heir of Edmund Linney, gent., was the head of a respectable family of inferior gentry, 
long connected with the town of Rochdale. He was baptized there on the igth May 1583, educated at the gram- 
mar school, and married 9th September 1606 Margaret, daughter of John Chadwick of Healey, gent., and had 
issue two sons, Richard and Edmund, and other children, all minors at his death. He died 2ist March 1618-19, 
and his relict married 2nd August 1622 the rev. Richard Walker, M. A., master of the grammar school, Rochdale. 
He is probably the Mr. Linney who settled 2/. per annum on the master of the school, although not by his will, 
which is dated I2th March 1618-19. Amongst other legacies he gave to "Mr. Henry Tilston, clerke, vicar of 
Rachdale, his best Cloke and Greek Lexicon," and legacies to his brother-in-law Jordan Chadwick, gent., and to 
his uncles Dr. Charles Chadwick and Dr. John Chadwick. (Lane. MSS., vol. xiii. p. 272; Hist. Koch. Gram. 
School, p. 23.) 

|| Thomas Healey of Rochdale was a wealthy yeoman, but made no proof of his right to arms. He was 
much connected with the Chadwicks of Healey, but not, perhaps, in blood. His father Thomas Healey of Lower 
Healey, yeoman, held lands there which he conveyed on the 22nd April, 4 Philip and Mary, to Robert Buckley of 
Buckley, gent., John Wolstenholm of Wolstenholm, gent., Arthur Whitehead of Dearnley and others, as feoffees 
in trust for the use of Robert Healey his eldest son and Elizabeth his wife, and their heirs male, and in default 
remainder to Thomas Healey his second son, and his heirs male in tail. (Lane. MSS., vol. xxi. p. 210.) Thomas 
Healey, gent., also held copyhold lands by deed dated 27th March, 30 Elizabeth, by surrender of John Lord of 
Clough house, and Henry Lord of Hatton house, yeomen ; and on the 22nd September, 3 Car. 1628, Thomas 
Healey the younger was admitted to the same on the death of Mr. Thomas Healey, his uncle. On the 3rd July 
1638, Thomas Healey of Birches, yeoman, surrendered these lands to Ottiwell Woolfenden of Hallsgrave. (Ibid. 
p. 212.) The family never became heraldic. 

1 Oliver Chadwick of Chadwick, gent., was the head of the parent house of that name, from a younger son of 
which in the 1 5th century descended the Chadwicks of Healey, who continue to the present time, although they 
abandoned their old seat in the parish of Rochdale, as one of them, full of the noble instincts of a true English 
gentleman, sorrowfully observed, "when the prowess of Rochdale's esquires and gentlemen had dwindled into a 
mercantile race, and when the age of chivalry was no more." Oliver Chadwick, here named, was the eldest son 
of.Roger Chadwick of Chadwick hall, gent., by his wife Isabel, daughter of Arthur Asheton of Rochdale, gent., and 
sister of William Asheton of Clegg hall, esq. He married Jane, daughter of Edmund Haslam of Falinge, gent,, 
and dying on the 6th December 1621, 19 Jac., was buried in the chancel of Rochdale church, being succeeded by 
his only son and heir John Chadwick. (Lane. MSS., vol. xiii. p. 163.)
