INTRODUCTION. 



(Figures preceded by the letter " p," within brackets, indicate pages of 
the present volume.) 



Iii the year 1911, a country mansion in the north of 
Northumberland was sold to new owners. The library was 
taken over with the house, but some old books and papers, 
found in clearing out the attics, were disposed of to a book- 
seller, who re-sold part of them to a well-known local collec- 
tor, the late Mr. Matthew Mackey, of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. 
Mr. Mackey's purchase included a number of heraldic manu- 
scripts which had been apparently part of a collection 
formed, at the close of the eighteenth century, by an 
ancestor of the late owners of the property. Amongst them 
was a parchment-bound volume, written in sixteenth cen- 
tury handwritings, containing an heraldic visitation of the 
north, made by William Harvey, Norroy, in 1552, another 
heraldic visitation of the north, made by Lawrence Dalton, 
Norroy, in 1558, and an anonymous collection of pedigrees, 
dated in 1567, apparently in the handwriting of William 
Flower, who was then Norroy, having succeeded Dalton in 
that office in 1502. 

It was Mr. Mackey's wish that the manuscript should 
be published, and he generously offered it to the Surtees 
Society for that purpose. His offer was gratefully accepted, 
and the present writer was requested to edit it, with other 
early heraldic visitations and collections of pedigrees of the 
north, for publication as part of the series of that society. 
Mr. Mackey unfortunately died in 1913, but Mrs. Mackey, 
his widow and beneficiary, desired that his wishes should 
be carried out and kindly confirmed the offer which he had 
made. 

Later on, the manuscript volume and its contents will 
be fully described, but that description will be better under- 
stood if it is prefaced by a brief account of visitations in 
general, of heraldic arms, and of still earlier visitations of 
the north, even though such prefatory remarks must contain 
much which may seem trite to readers versed in heraldry. 



VISITATIONS OF THE NORTH. 



HERALDIC VISITATIONS. 



The ancient duties of the king's martial messengers 
called heralds, were to announce war, to proclaim peace, to 
manage tournaments and combats, to attend on embassies, 
and to officiate at solemnities. In the reigns of Henry YII. 
and Henry Till., their functions were extended in many 
ways. Previously thereto, their management of tourna- 
ments carried with it the right to confirm or sanction the 
bearing of heraldic arms, and they exercised also the right 
to grant them by licence of the king or his minister the Earl 
Marshal. But, in those reigns, it became customary to give, 
by patent, this power of granting arms to the three chief 
heralds, Garter, Clarenceux, and Norroy. Garter, whose 
duties lay principally with the Order of that name, and with 
the higher nobility, was the principal king of arms for the 
whole of England ; Clareuceux, who came next in order of 
rank and emolument, was king of arms for the parts of 
England south of the river Trent ; and Norroy, who came 
next to Clarenceux, was king of arms for the parts of Eng- 
land north of that river. 

Upon the two provincial kings of arms, Clarenceux and 
Norroy, were conferred also the task and privilege of visit- 
ing their provinces, personally or by deputy. Their duties 
at these visitations were to register the descents, marriages, 
and issue of noblemen and gentlemen residing within their 
province, to record their arms, to correct false heraldry, to 
confirm the arms of rightful claimants thereto, to grant new 
arms to ' any person of ability to have armes by reason of 
office, authority, wisdome, substance, good manners, sadd 
governance,' and to devise and grant crests, cognizances, 
differences, and mottoes.* 

The provision for registering the descents, marriages. 
and issue of men of note in the provinces was of undoubted 
public utility. The government records of succession and 
taxation, so well kept under the Plantagenet kings, had 
been neglected in the fifteenth century, owing to Lancastrian 
and Yorkist troubles, and difficulties had arisen in provinsr 
descents and titles to property. Moreover, the old order of 
things was changing and giving place to new. The estates 
of the large landowners had been dismembered by 
attainders, those of the church were being broken up by 
disendowment, and both were being sold to new men owning 
smaller properties. Many of the buyers had made their

money in the rising- commerce of the trading towns. They 
were principally of country descent, for the law provided 
that none who had not land or rent should put their children 
to he apprentices in any city or borough, and, when large 
retinues had been forbidden to the feudal nobility, and war 
no longer afforded a sufficient outlet, the sons of the country 
gentry served as apprentices in the towns, and thought it in 
no way derogatory to live above the shop and to sell across 
the counter.* But they did not forget their origin, and 
when they came back to the land again they were wishful to 
have their claims of birth and ancestry recognised and re- 
corded. 

Lord Coke, writing of the heralds, says : ' Their learning 
and faithful dealing in descents and pedigrees upon just 
proof, may be a mean to quiet controversies about titles of 
honors, dignities, and inheritances. 't Edmondson, writing 
of the pedigrees entered at these visitations, says they 
' contain memorials of past transactions and events ; and 
from them chroiiologers and historians have drawn very con- 
siderable assistance ; they have operated to the detection of 
frauds, forgeries, and impostures; cleared up doubts and 
difficulties ; established marriages ; supported and defended 
legitimacy of blood; ascertained family alliances; proved 
and maintained affinity and consanguinity ; vindicated and 
corroborated the titles of land to their possessors ; and been 
of essential use in settling claims and rights of inheritance 
by furnishing effectual evidence. '+ The original entries of 
the heralds made at the visitations are, up to the present 
day. frequently produced from the College of Arms in the 
House of Lords, and are there given in evidence in trials 
relating to the titles to baronies. 

The making of visitations flourished, on the whole, 
throughout the sixteenth century, but, by its close, the prac- 
tice was beginning to fall into disrepute. This was owing, 
partly to the exactions of the heralds, and partly to the 
inroads of unauthorised dealers in arms and makers of false 
pedigrees, but principally to the growth of Puritan doctrines 
inimical to arbitrary distinctions and artificial dignities. 
Good visiting work was done in many counties between 
1600 and 1634, but in 1624 the heralds were complained of 
in Parliament, and in May of that year the Commons voted 
that their visitations were a grievance.

XVI VISITATIONS OF THE NORTH. 

They were discontinued during the Commonwealth, but 
were revived at the Restoration. In 1665 and 1666, William 
Dugdale, Norroy, made his great visitation of Yorkshire. 
Although he entered the pedigrees of no fewer than 472 
families, yet nearly one-third of the gentry whom he sum- 
moned to appear before him, neglected to do so.* The last- 
commission to visit was granted to Sir Henry St. George in 
1686, and the last pedigrees recorded under it were collected 
in 1704. Edmondson says that ' when the Powers of the 
Curia Militaris or Earl Marshal's Court ceased, by reason 
that no Constable of England was appointed, the Officers of 
Arms could no longer maintain their authority, enforce their 
commands, or punish delinquents; so that Commissions for 
Visitations which had been occasionally granted from the 
20th Henry VIII., to the year 1686 were no longer applied 
for.'t 

Another reason for the decay and ultimate discontinu- 
ance of visitations was, that they were being superseded in 
utility in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries by the 
more democratic provision that all baptisms, marriages, and 
burials should be registered in parishes, much as the utility 
of parish registers is being superseded in the nineteenth and 
twentieth centuries by the civil registration of all births, 
marriages, and deaths. 

The parochial system of registration was indeed in- 
stituted as early as the reign of Henry VIII., but, owing to 
the ravages of time and the carelessness of incumbents, few 
registers remain extant for the sixteenth century, and fewer 
still for the first half of it ; so that, for that century, heralds' 
visitations have a special value, especially when their con- 
tents are confirmed by contemporaneous wills, deeds, or 
public records. Many such wills, relating to testators in 
Yorkshire, Durham, and Northumberland, have been printed 
in the volumes issued by this Society, and this has been 
supplemented, in Yorkshire, by the publication, by the 
Yorkshire Archaeological and Topographical Association, of 
an index of all the wills in the York Registry. It is much to 
be hoped that a similar index may some day be published of 
all the wills for Durham and Xortlmmberland in the Dur- 
ham Registry. Wherever this printed material has come 
under the notice of the editor, it has been referred to in the 
notes accompanying the pedigrees printed in this volume. 

In Grarter Leake's account of the Heralds' College, 
delivered to a committee of the House of Lords in 176T, it is

stated that, in tlie reign of Henry VIII., ' the provincial 
kings of arms obtained commissions to visit their provinces, 
which before they had done by virtue of their offices.'* The 
commission was an open letter from the sovereign, under the 
great seal, addressed to mayors, sheriffs, and others in 
authority, whereby, after reciting that the king of arms, by 
the sovereign's special licence, intended to visit his province, 
they were directed to show him all favour and assistance. 
The commission to Harvey, Norroy, is set out in the appen- 
dix (p. 199); that to Benolte, Clarenceux, which was granted 
on the 19th April, 1529, and is the earliest commission now 
extant, contains the following clause : ' willing and grant- 
ing, by these our said letters, that the same shall be at all 
times in full power, strength, and effect, now and here- 
after, ivhile our said servant liveth; and to execute his visita- 
tions in his said province, wheresoever he thinketh best to 
employ him thereunto. 't 

The earliest visitation in the library of the College of 
Arms of a part of the south province, namely, the visitation 
of Worcestershire, Berks., Oxon., Wilts., Gloucestershire, 
and Staffordshire, was made by Benolte under the above- 
mentioned commission to him. According to Leake's report, 
there was no commission for the earliest visitation contained 
in the same library, of part of the north province, namely, 
the counties of Nottingham, York, Northumberland, West- 
morland, and Cumberland, made by Thomas Tonge, 
Norroy, in 1530, for the report states that the first commis- 
sion to Norroy was in 1542, at which time William Fellows 
held the post.J In that case. Tonge must, to use the words 
of the report, have made his visitation ' by virtue of his 
office.' There was, as has been said, a commission to 
Harvey, Norroy, in 1552 (p. 199), and his visitation of the 
same year was doubtless made pursuant thereto, but there 
was apparently no commission to Dalton, Norroy, and, if so, 
he also must have made his visitation of 1558 'by virtue of 
his office.' It is clear, from the dates given by Dalton's 
successor, Flower, Norroy, on the faces of his pedigrees, that 
he began his visitation of 156-3-4-5 in 156.3, which was before 
he received his commission of the 10th July. 1564, set out 
in the appendix (p. 204), and lie also must, therefore, have 
commenced it ' by virtue of his office.' It is noteworthy, 
however, that whilst the letters patent appointing Fellows, 
Dethick, Harvey, Dalton, and Flower, as Norroy, all con-

XVlll VISITATIONS OF THE NORTH. 

tained express power from the Crown ' to grant arms and to 
visit/ the letters patent appointing Touge contained no such 
power, and it may possibly be inferred from this that Leake 
was mistaken, and that there was a commission, now lost, to 
Tonge to make his visitation of 1530.* 

The first commissions were little more than formal 
letters, addressed by the Crown to the civil authorities, claim- 
ing their assistance for the king of arms in his work, and 
at that time his chief warrant must have lain in the right 
to grant arms and to visit contained in, or to be inferred 
from, his letters patent; but later commissions conferred 
additional powers on the king of arms and his deputies, and, 
it is submitted that it was only then that a commission came 
to be considered to be a necesssary preliminary to every 
visitation. The commission was followed by circular letters 
from the Earl Marshal to the lord lieutenants of counties, by 
warrants from the kings of arms or their deputies to the 
bailiffs of hundreds, and by summonses to attend, addressed 
to the persons intended to be visited. t 

The first visits of the kings of arms, or their deputies, 
were roving journeys over many counties, and their efforts 
were apparently directed towards making, in time, one com- 
plete record for the entire province without distinction of 
counties. But they soon began to arrange their collections 
into counties, and, later on, each county was made the sub- 
ject of a separate visitation, although throughout the visita- 
tion period, from the time of Benolte, in 1529, to that of Sir 
Henry St. George, in 1686, the commission was for the king 
of arms or his deputy to visit the whole province, and not 
merely any particular county therein. +

INTRODUCTION. XIX 

perhaps primarily, for the purpose of regulating the use of 
coat-armour, and some of the heralds are said to have paid 
more attention to the armorial than to the genealogical 
part of their duties. 

The origin of arms-bearing, of the property in arms, and 
of their descendible nature, is succinctly explained by an 
able writer as follows : ' There can be little doubt that 
heraldic devices, which in course of time have come to be 
regarded rather as the property of a family than of an indi- 
vidual, were originally a purely personal distinction. Their 
primary use was to distinguish the warrior in the field, when 
his form and features were hidden by his armour. This 
purpose would have been frustrated, if the same emblems 
had been adopted by several persons. Hence, the assertion 
of an exclusive property in arms. It was natural that the 
device which had been borne with honour by the father 
should be adopted by the son, and that its assumption by a 
stranger should be resented as the invasion of a prior right. 
Hence, the hereditary character of the right to coat- 
armour.'* 

The form, colour, and symbolism of these devices adapted 
them admirably to schemes of decoration. They spread 
from the shield of the soldier to the silken surcoat of his 
armour (whence came the term coat-armour), to the trap- 
pings of his horse, and to the engraving on his seal. From 
the depositions in the Scrope and Grosvenor case,t taken 
between 1-385 and 1390, it is clear that, long before that 
time, they had been used profusely, on the stonework of 
tombs, in the stained glass windows of abbeys and manor 
houses, and even on clerical vestments given to churches 
by patrons of livings. Many of the deponents in that case 
who bore arms had received them, when very young men, at 
battles or sieges, from their king or prince or commandant, 
from which it may be gathered that, notwithstanding their 
ornamental uses, arms still remained in their essence a badge 
of military service. In Grey against Hastings, another 
case of disputed arms, tried shortly after the case of Scroue 
against Grosvenor, one of the witnesses, of noble origin, 
deposed that he had no arms, because neither he nor any of 
his ancestors had ever taken part in any war.+ 

So long as there was no usurpation of another's arms, 
there seems to have been no law to prevent the assumption

XX VISITATIONS OF THE NORTH. 

of new conventional devices at pleasure, until the proclam- 
ation of Henry V. in 1418, which ordained, in effect, that 
no man should assume arms unless he held them by inherit- 
ance, or by gift of some pejrson empowered to grant them. 
It is clear, from the evidence in the trials above cited, that, 
before that ordinance of Henry V. was issued, arms had 
become highly esteemed possessions, and its result was to 
enhance their value. Applications were made to the king, 
who is the fountain of honour, for new grants, and those 
applications, writes Edmondson, ' became so frequent and 
troublesome, that our sovereigns, for their own ease, im- 
powered the two provincial kings of arms to grant arms, 
crests, and ensigns-armorial, within their respective pro- 
vinces, with the privity and consent of the Earl Marshal/* 

At the same time, that is early in the fifteenth century, 
gifts of arms were extended to others than militants, and, 
by the middle of that century, we find the records of many 
grants to civilians of repute, to clerics, to corporate bodies, 
both lay and clerical, and to trading companies. 

For example, arms were granted to King's College, Cam- 
bridge, and to Eton College in 1449, to the Tallow Chandlers' 
Company of London in 1450, t and to Peter Hellard, prior 
of the canons of Bridlington, in 1470. + 

The regulations made in the reign of Henry YIII., al- 
ready cited at page xiv. of this introduction, specified the 
qualifications then required to be possessed by applicants for 
grants of arms, and, in the order made by Charles Brandon, 
Duke of Suffolk, who was Earl Marshal from 1524 to 1533, 
4 As to what all degrees should pay for the grants of new 
arms,' it is recommended that men of the church and all 
temporal men of good repute, able to maintain the state of a 
gentleman, and all crafts and companies corporate in London 
and elsewhere within the realm, should have tokens of arms 
devised and given to them ; and this is followed by a differ- 
ential list of the fees to be taken for such grants from various 
orders of men, including bishops, abbots, priors, deans, 
archdeacons, clergymen, corporate crafts, and temporal men 
having one hundred marks and upwards by the year, in land 
or fees. 

This was the position at the beginning of the visitation 
period. The king of arms was not only to enter the pedi- 
gree of the person visited, but, if so required, was to record

hundred and fifty years, many hundreds of coats of arms 
were allowed, continued, or granted. Although before, 
during, and after that period, arms were granted inde- 
pendently of visitations, by far the largest proportion of the 
arms borne at the present day, derive their title from visita- 
tion records. Early rolls of arms and ancient armorial seals 
blazon the heraldic bearings of many knights and gentlemen 
who lived long before the Heralds' College was instituted, 
and persons who can prove descent in the male line from 
them have a clear, though it may be an unregistered, title 
to the arms of their forefathers. But, according to the 
present practice of the College, male descent, either from a 
grantee of arms, or from a family whose right to bear arms 
has been recognised at some visitation, is the only accepted 
title to an hereditary shield.* 

By the time that the visitation period commenced, coat- 
armour had ceased to be useful for the identification of the 
soldier. It had become merely an hereditary possession, 
denoting either honoured ancestry, or the attainment of 
honourable rank, and the style of its devices, or charges, 
naturally changed. They became elaborate, and in some 
cases involved. Part of this alteration was due to the 
attempts of the heralds to distinguish between the increasing 
number of holders, and in the case of crests, which were 
originally merely the ornamental apexes of helmets, these 
attempts to differentiate led to complicated and incongruous 
results, of which the reproductions on pages .100 and 192 of 
this volume are unhappy examples. 

The simple clearness of shields was also impaired by the 
practice of impaling the arms of wives to show alliances, 
and of quartering the arms of heiress-ancestresses to show 
descents; although, against this impaired simplicity, must 
be set the added value of such shield;- 1 as a record of the 
kindred of their holders. 

It will be seen by a reference to the illustrations of this 
volume, that the shields of the sixteenth century still show 
freedom of treatment, and in many cases simplicity of effect, 
but deterioration in these respects bad already set in. This 
was pointed out at an early date by Wyrley, an heraldic 
author, who, writing in 1592, protested that men's ancestors 
had contented themselves with ' certain fair, ancient, and 
well-known marks,' and that their successors were using 
something like a ' curtain ' instead, and he expresses a wish

Herald, Nineteenth Century Magazine for June, 1896, p. 1033.

' that every man would content himself with his own pecu- 
liar coat of name.'* In the seventeenth and eighteenth 
centuries, both design and workmanship suffered so much 
from incompetent treatment, that they are said by a modern 
artist writer to have ' stumbled from feebleness to feeble- 
ness,'! and, notwithstanding that this became acknowledged 
in the nineteenth century, and that individual efforts were 
made for its amendment, it was only at the close of that 
century that heraldic art in England began to re-attain some- 
what of its old high level. 

It is stated by Mr. Everard Green, Somerset Herald, 
that instances are not wanting in which families have 
recovered estates by virtue of preserving the armorial 
escutcheons of their ancestors,* but, as a general rule, such 
armorial bearings are, at the present day, of no practical 
utility in this country. 

They are, however, still necessary for many orders of 
chivalry, and in some foreign countries for court appoint- 
ments. The heralds still grant arms and record pedigrees 
for those who require them, and those pedigrees, according 
to modern practice, now contain references to the evidences 
on which they are founded. It appears by Dr. Marshall's 
note to Leake's return (supra cit.) that in the fifteen years 
ending in 1777, about 220 grants of arms were issued, 
whilst according to the return made to the House of 
Commons in 1863 some 869 grants in all were made in the 
thirteen years ending in 1862, || thus showing a fourfold 
ratio of increase in the intervening one hundred years. 
A return made at the present day would no doubt show 
a continuance of that increase ; for decent people who 
desire the distinction, such as it is, have learnt that it is 
wrong to adopt, without title, the heraldic coat of another, 
simply because his surname is the same as theirs. The new 
man still obtains his grant, or confirmation of arms, as an 
ornamental possession which will not only serve to mark the 
position in life he has attained by his own exertions, but 
will descend to his family ; while the modern democratic 
council of the twentieth century is as interested in its new 
heraldic coat as was the close incorporated company of the 
sixteenth century.

EARLIER VISITATIONS OF THE NORTH. 

The area of the province of Norroy, king of arms, is 
usually described as extending ' from the river of Trent 
northwards.' The counties, and part of a county, which the 
area contained in 1534, are enumerated in an indenture of 
that date, made between Wriothsley, Garter, and Hawley, 
Norroy. They were Yorkshire, Richmondshire, the bishop- 
ric of Durham, Northumberland, Cumberland, Westmor- 
land, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Lancashire, Shropshire, 
and half Staffordshire beyond Trent.* Cheshire w r as ex- 
cluded, because it was then in the western province assigned 
to March king of arms, but the title of March expired on the 
death of William Ballard, the last herald who held the 
office ; his province was divided between the two remaining 
kings of arms, and Cheshire was then added to the province 
of Norroy. t 

Prior to the commencement of the recognised visitation 
period which, as already stated, began about 1530, pedigrees 
privately drawn up for noble families in the north were not 
uncommon. The Ashmole MS. 846, contains (fol. 132-139) 
pedigrees drawn up by Thomas Pickering, abbot of 
Whitby, of the families of Percy, Tyson, and Vescy, by the 
request of Ralph Eure in 1485, and the Harl. MS. 1171 
contains (fol. 9b) a pedigree of the ancestors of Sir William 
Griffith, drawn up by his command in 1511. Prior to that 
period also the kings of arms appear to have made something 
very like visitations ; for it is recorded that the above-named 
William Ballard, March king of arms, drew up in the reign 
of Edward IV. (that is before the 9th April, 1483), a book of 
pedigrees of the nobility and gentry of his province. That 
book was still in the College of Arms when Wanley edited 
the Harleian manuscripts in 1759. + Although the Reverend 
Mark Noble, author of A History of the College of Arms was 
wrong in countenancing the since disproved statement that 
there was a visitation lay ' the Marshal of Norroy ' as early 
as 1412, yet he was probably right in his suggeistion that 
visitations originated ' from some skilful and industrious 
herald, taking minutes of what he could obtain respecting 
arms and genealogies, whilst attending royal progresses,

XXIV VISITATIONS OF THE NORTH. 

or some public commission, in different bounties in his 
province.' 1 * 

We get on much surer ground when we come to the well- 
known visitation of the northern counties begun by Thomas 
Tonge, Norroy, on the 7th August, 1530. There appear to 
be no fewer than five manuscripts of this visitation in the 
College of Armsf and two in the British Museum. + The 
two chief manuscripts are Heralds' College D. 4, which is 
said to be the original, and Harl. MS. 1499 (12), which is 
said to be the official copy. Tonge's visitation is also in 
print, for it was carefully edited from the Harl. MS. 1499, 
by the late Mr. W. H. D. Longstatt'e, a well-known northern 
antiquary, and was published by this Society as number 41 
of its series of volumes. 

Tonge's visitation included Northumberland, Durham, 
Cumberland, Westmorland, Yorkshire, and Nottingham- 
shire. The working area of the Surtees Society extends over 
only the first five of the counties above mentioned, and they 
are spoken of in this book as the northern counties. 

The visitations, not only of Nottinghamshire, but also of 
the remaining counties, namely Derbyshire, Staffordshire, 
Lancashire, and Cheshire, comprised in the province of Nor- 
roy, have been dealt with, wholly or in part, by other 
societies, and our main attention must be confined to the 
usual area of this Society's labours. 

Speaking then of the northern counties in the restricted 
sense above defined, the next extant and recorded visitation, 
after Tonge's visitation in 1530, is that by William Harvey, 
Norroy, in 1552, which is printed in the first section of this 
volume. 

It does not follow, however, that there were no other 
visitations, or heraldic collections of pedigrees, made in the 
northern counties between 1530 and 1552. In that period, 
between the reigns of Tonge and Harvey, there were four 
intermediate Norroy kings of arms. They were Thomas 
Hawley, appointed in 1534 ; Christopher Barker, who was 
appointed in 1536, and only held the office for one month; 
William Fellows, appointed in 1536 ; and Gilbert Dethick, 
who was appointed in 1546, and was succeeded by Harvev 
in 1550.

There is a list of printed visitations relating to the above counties,

agencies, in Dr. Marshall's Notes on the Heralds' Visitations, in the

Research in England, Scotland and Ireland (Boston and London, 1906). 



INTRODUCTION". XXV 

Thomas Hawley, on the 2nd August, 1534, executed, as 
Norroy, the deed before alluded to,* by which he agreed to 
share with Wriothsley, Garter, the profits of interments, 
confirmations, and gifts of arms in the north province, and 
in the same year he confirmed from London, as Norroy, the 
gift made by Henry, Earl of Northumberland, to Sir 
Reginald Carnaby, of an augmentation of his arms and crest, 
for services rendered by the latter in Scotia nd.t Although 
Hawley does not appear as Norroy in the usual lists of kings 
of arms, it is clear from the above facts that he held that 
office, but there is no indication that either he or Christopher 
Barker, who followed him, ever visited the north. 

It is otherwise with their successors, William Fellows 
and Gilbert Dethick. According to Leake's report, already 
mentioned, + it was in 1542 that the first commission to 
visit was granted to a king of arms of the northern province. 
Fellows was Norroy in that year, and, as he remained in 
office until 1540, it is probable that he executed the com- 
mission granted to him, and that he made a visitation of 
the northern counties which has since been lost. In Septem- 
ber, 1547, Gilbert Dethick, Norroy, was sent from London 
to Scotland on a mission to the Queen Dowager and Council 
of Scotland. So soon as he had accomplished his mission, 
and, apparently, on his way back to London, he granted 
arms to many men in the north, and it is probable that at 
the same time he recorded their pedigrees. Some of the 
dates and names of the grantees of these 'gifts of arms are as 
follows : 

3rd November, 1547, Henry Anderson, of Newcastle- 

upon-Tyne. 

9th November, 1547, Matthew Meir, of the north. 
10th December, 1547, Francis Armorer of Belford in 

Northumberland . 

6th April, 1548, John Baker of Morpeth in Northum- 
berland. 
15th May, 1548, Sir Ralph Leycester of Tofte in 

Cheshire. 
17th May. 1548, Christopher Ashton of Croston in 

Lancashire. 
18th May, 1548, Sir George Conyers, knight, of Durham 

(crest). 

1st July, 1548, John Fleetwood, of the County of 
Lancaster.

XXVI VISITATIONS OF THE NORTH. 

By the 15th December, 1548, Gilbert Dethick had re- 
turned to London, for his grant of that date to George 
Dakins of the county of York is dated at London, and 
another grant of the same year, of which the day and month 
are not given, namely, that to Hugh Partridge, residing in 
the north parts, is also dated in London.* Gutch, in his 
notes to Anstis's List of Visitations, states that when an 
army was constantly kept on the Marches (of Scotland), 
the heralds were frequently sent as attendants on em- 
bassies and other special affairs, and took these opportunities 
of obtaining patents for making their itineraries, t an obser- 
vation that may have been applicable to the aforesaid mission 
of Gilbert Dethick, as well as to the missions of Harvey and 
Dalton hereinafter mentioned. 

The probability, above stated, that both Fellows and 
Gilbert Dethick made visitations of the north, or collec- 
tions of north country pedigrees, is supported by the cer- 
tainty that visitations or heraldic collections of pedigrees of 
the north, were made, not only before Tonge's time, but 
also between Tonge's termination of office as Norroy in 
1534 and Gilbert Dethick's termination of the same office 
in 1550. 

Mr. Longstaffe published, as an appendix to his edition 
of Tonge's visitation, + a roll of arms, copied by Sir 
Marmaduke Constable in 1558, out of an old roll of the 
visitation of the northern province. He (Mr. Longstaffe) 
extracted it from the Lansdowne MS. 205, folio 235, and 
entitled it Constable's Boll. It contains no fewer than three 
hundred and fifty names of men prominent in Yorkshire 
and Northumberland in the first half of the sixteenth cen- 
tury, and that is a slightly larger total than the number of 
pedigrees in the Xorcliffe manuscript, printed in the six- 
teenth volume of the Harleian Society's publications. It will 
be shown hereafter that the Norcliffe manuscript did not 
merely contain, as assumed by its editor, Flower's visitation 
of 1563-4, but was an ingathering also of many visitations 
and collections of pedigrees made by previous heralds. 
In the same way, the ' Old roll of the visitation 
of the province ' from which Constable extracted, in 1558, 
his roll of arms, must have been the result of the 
labours of several heralds, for an examination of its contents

shows that the pedigrees it records were made at intervals 
extending over many years. For instance, it contained, on 
the one hand, the pedigrees of Sir Thomas Wortley, of 
Wortley, whose will was proved on the 12th March, 1514, 
of Roger Eyre, whose will was proved on the 9th October, 
1516, and of Sir Richard Bassett of Fledborough, whose 
will was proved on the llth May, 1525. On the other hand, 
it contained the pedigree of Robert Middleton of Belsay in 
Northumberland, whose father, Thomas Middleton, of 
Belsay, fatally wounded at Ancrum Moor, did not die until 
the 8th March, 1545, when he left the said Robert Middle- 
ton, then aged sixteen, his eldest son and heir. It also con- 
tained the pedigree of Sir Reginald Carnaby, entered after 
he obtained the augmentation to his arms in 1534, and 
before his death in 1548. It included (as does the collection 
comprised in 10 Hurl. Soc.) practically the whole of 
Tonge's work of 1530, but it also contained early sixteenth 
century pedigrees of many other families of distinction in 
the north, who do not re-appear in extant visitations until 
the seventeenth century. 

In the second half of the sixteenth century new regula- 
tions were made, both in Mary's reign* and in that of 
Elizabeth, t for insuring that the records of the heralds 
should be deposited in the College of Arms. Notwithstand- 
ing those regulations, we find that Flower, Norroy, looked 
upon the ' old recordes of thoffyce of Norrey ' as the private 
property of the kings of arms (p. 204), that Sir William 
Dethick, Garter, is alleged to have conveyed eighteen folio 
volumes of the best books of the College into his private 
study, and never to have restored them,* and that Cooke, 
Clarenceux, is said to have made many profitable visitations, 
for which he received his fees, but of which he never entered 
the results in the books of the College.

XXV111 VISITATIONS OF THE NORTH. 

In the first half of that century, before those regulations 
were made, and when visitations themselves were more desul- 
tory and fragmentary, the leakage was greater still, and 
many heraldic manuscripts compiled during that period 
appear to be entirely lost. The result is that only the 
ninety north country families comprised in Tonge's visita- 
tion of 1530, can prove descent by means of any college 
record made prior to Harvey's visitation of 1552. although, 
as we gather from the wording of Constable's Roll, 110 fewer 
than three hundred and fifty families had then been visited. 

The foregoing observations on visitations in general, 
heraldic arms, and earlier visitations of the north, have now 
cleared the way for a description of the manuscript lately 
brought to light, which is designated in this volume as MS. 
Anstis, C. 9." 

THE MANUSCRIPT ANSTIS, C. 9. 

It has been usual and convenient in writing on visita- 
tions, to enumerate them by separate counties, even where, 
as in the earliest visitations of Benolte and Tonge, they 
extended over more counties than one. Taking Yorkshire 
separately, we find that heraldic writers of comparatively 
recent times, including Marshall, Norcliffe, and Foster,* 
have stated that there were in all five visitations of that 
county, and that they have all been printed and published 
as follows: 

(1) 1530. Tonge, in Surtees Society publ. vol. 41. 

(2) 1563-4. Flower, in Harleian Society publ. vol. 16. 

(3) 1584-5. Glover (for Flower), \ j n Foster's 

(4) 1612. Richard St. George, J Visitations of Yorkshire. 

(5) 1664-5. Dugdale, in Surtees Society publ. vol. 36. 

Heraldic writers of a century ago. including Noble and 
Moule,t mention also a visitation of Yorkshire and North- 
umberland made by William Harvey in 1552, and another 
visitation of those two counties made by Lawrence Dalton 
in 1558. 

All the references to Harvey's and Dalton's visitations 
come from one source, namely, a list by Anstis, Garter, of 
' The names of the heralds who have visited the counties of 
England and AVales, in what year, and where the originals

and copies are to be found.' This list was printed in 1781, 
with notes thereon, in Gutch's 'Collectanea Curiosa,' 
vol. 2, page 210, from a manuscript in the library of 
All Souls College, Oxford. Harvey's visitation is the better 
known of the two, for there are three manuscripts of it in 
the College of Arms.* From those manuscripts it has been 
used by historians and genealogists, but it has not hitherto 
been published, because it was not known until lately that 
any copy of it existed outside the College. Dalton's visita- 
tion has been hitherto unknown, beyond the references to 
it in Anstis's list and in Gutch's notes thereto, for there is 
apparently no manuscript of it in the College of Arms itself, 
and it was not known until lately that any manuscript of it 
existed elsewhere. 

Anstis appears to have treated Harvey's visitation as a 
visitation of both Northumberland and Yorkshire, and 
Dalton's visitation as one of Northumberland only. Under 
the heading of Northumberland he has (inter alia) the 
words, ' Penes me C. 8., C. 9. bis. William Harvey. Law- 
rence Dalton 1557 't and, under the heading of Yorkshire, 
Anstis has (inter alia] the words ' AVilliam Harvey ' (with 
' 1552 ' in square brackets added by Gutch) ' Penes me C. 9 ' 
Gutch, in his notes thereto, under Yorkshire, adds the 
heading of Harvey's visitation as >set out in this volume 
(p. 1), and also the following note of the heading of Dalton's 
visitation : ' Visitation of the County of York, begun March 
8, 1557, 4 & 5 Philip and Mary, by Lawrence Dalton, Esq., 
Norroy king of arms.'+ 

As the manuscript which is mentioned on page xiii. of 
this introduction to have been purchased by Mr. Mackey in 
1911, bears, inside its cover, the pressmark C. 9, and as it 
contains an index in the handwriting of Anstis, and some 
emendations to the Carnaby pedigrees, also in his hand- 
writing (pp. 28-27), it is clear that it is the manuscript 
referred to in Anstis's list as being then in his possession, 
and as bearing his pressmark C. 9. His library was sold in 
17G8, after the death of his son who had inherited it. The 
books were not well catalogued. The manuscript is uniform 
in binding and endorsement, with a manuscript of Harvey's 
visitation of Norfolk, also acquired by Mr. Mackey in 1911, 
as part of his same purchase, and it is possible that they both

t The words cited are as they stand in Collectanea Curiosa, vol. 2,

C. 9 ' follow separately, both after the name of William Harvey and 
after that of Lawrence Dalton.

XXX VISITATIONS OF THE NORTH. 

passed at Anstis's sale under lot 36, described in the cata- 
logue as ' Miscellaneous collections relating to Norfolk, 
Yorkshire, and other counties,' which fell at the auction to 
' Scott,' as purchaser, for 1 7s. Od. 

This MS. Anstis C. 9, is bound in a parchment 
cover, inscribed on the back with the index-letter, words, 
and figures following : ' N. Harvey's Visitation of the North, 
1550. Dalton's Visitation of the North, 1557,' and on the 
outside with the words and figure following : ' The Visit- 
ation of the North parte by Harvy Norroy temp: Ed: 6: ' 
and on the inside with the letters, figures, and word 
following: ' C. 9. W. Paul. 6.' The inside lining of the 
cover is formed of two vellum leaves of a fourteenth century 
manuscript of the Legenda Aurea. 

Its contents fall into sections as follows : 

1. Twenty-six tabular pedigrees with roundels, being 

a selection (chiefly Yorkshire pedigrees) from 

section two. 
2. Fifty-four pedigrees and headings of pedigrees in 

narrative form, being Harvey's visitation of 1552. 
3. Sixty-five tabular pedigrees with square labels. 

being a visitation or collection of pedigrees made 

by Flower, Norroy, in 1567. 
4. Twenty-nine pedigrees and headings of pedigrees 

in narrative form, being part of Dalton's visitation 

of 1558. 
5. Two leaves, bound in towards the end, being a 

fragment of an armorial in an older handwriting 

of the first half of the sixteenth century. 
6. An index in the handwriting of John Anstis the 

elder. 

Nearly all the pedigrees in sections one and two (except 
those in section two which are left unfinished), a few of the 
pedigrees in section three, and nearly all the pedigrees in 
section four are marked at the top of the page, in Flower's 
handwriting, with a cross, and the word ' entered ' written 
after it. Wanley, in editing the Harleian manuscripts for 
the British Museum, commented on this cross and word 
which appear in many visitation manuscripts. He explained 
that this denoted that the pedigrees and arms had been fair- 
copied into other books, and he added that the heralds, at 
visitations, took the descents on loose sheets of paper. These 
loose sheets were not delivered up to the College, and, if not 
lost, fell by death or otherwise into other hands and were 
bound up in varying order, so ' that a descent which is in the 
beginning of one copy shall be found toward the middle or 
end of another.' This serves to explain why the Harvey 



INTRODUCTION*. XXXI 

descents in section one, which begins with that of John 
Eglesfield, are in almost inverse order with those in section 
two, which begins with that of Francis Aslakeby.* 

In the top right-hand corner of the first page of section 
one, written evidently to evince ownership, is trie signature 
of William Colbarne, York Herald. 




This signature by William Colbarne approximately dates 
section one of the manuscript. He was appointed York 
Herald on the 25th January, 1564, and died on the 13th 
September, 1567, and it must have been between those' two 
dates that he so signed himself .t He is called Colborue by 
Xoble and other heraldic writers, but he signs as ' Colbarne ' 
and the latter was his real name. There is a manuscript in 
the British Museum (Harl. MS. 1394), described as 'Arms 
given by Christopher Barker, copied oute of an old booke, 
sometimes Wm. Colborne's, York Herald, and late of Rafe 
Brook, York Herald, and now in the custody of Sir Edward 
Bering.' Among the grants contained in it is one to Col- 
borne, namely, Argent, a fess and canton gules, thereon a 
crescent of the field, and on the same folio (fol. 29) there 
is also a grant to Colbarne, Argent, a chevron between three 
bugle-horns sable, stringed or. These latter were the arms 
placed on his memorial brass in the church of St. Dunstan 
in the West, Fleet Street, and the inscription on the brass 
described him as William Colbarne.* 

The continuity of family connection existed, in the 
Heralds' College in the sixteenth century, as it does to-day, 
and just as Dalton, Norroy, was a brother-in-law of Christo- 
pher Barker, Garter, (from whom Colbarne inherited the 
said book of arms), so there are strong indications that Col- 
barne was related to Dalton. Dalton's sister married a 
Francis Colbarnejl and the name is so uncommon as to sup-

Machyn, in his Diary (Camden Soc. vol. xlii. pp. 49 and 336), under the

port the presumption that "William Colbarne, York Herald, 
was of the same family. He was with Dalton, in attendance 
on Henry Earl of Westmorland, from February to October, 
1558, during which time Dalton made his visitation of that 
year. He also made, either with or for Dalton, the collection 
of pedigrees of 1560-61 printed herein (p. 157 et seq.) for 
they are in Colbarne's handwriting, and when he died his 
memorial brass was placed, below Dalton's, on the same pil- 
lar of the church of St. Dunstan in the West. 

Colbarne had also heraldic relationships with William 
Harvey, Nprroy, for he had not only copied from Harvey's 
draft (section two of the manuscript which is hereinafter 
reproduced) another version in roundels signed at the top 
by him (section one of the manuscript), but he entered what 
appears to be Harvey's original draft (section two) in the 
book D. 4 of the College of Arms. Colbarne's handwriting 
is well known, for it is found in the Harleian MS. No. 6113, 
where he heads a warrant for payment to him as ' my 
liberate,'* and, as well in that manuscript in the British 
Museum, as in D. 4 in the College, he adds a list of the 
' Dukes, Earls, Lords, and Knights, which were at the 
Coronation of Richard III.,' a list which is to be found 
nowhere else in manuscript. 

Dalton had died in 1561, and William Flower had been 
appointed Norroy in his place in 1562. In his petition to the 
Earl Marshal, which was prior to his commission of the 
10th July. 1564 (appendix p. 205), Flower had complained 
that he had no store of books of arms, and was destitute for 
the supply of his visitation ; but, on the death of Colbarne in 
1567, he must have immediately acquired, from the latter's 
representatives, sections one, two, and four (that is, the 
Harvey and Dalton parts), of the Anstis manuscript. For 
not only are there numerous additions in Flower's hand- 
writing in section one, and not only do the cross and the 
word ' entered ' (above explained) appear in his handwriting 
throughout section two, but there is also the date ' 1567,' in 
his handwriting, placed opposite an addition by him to 
Dalton's pedigree, of the family of Brackenbury in section 
four (p. 117). He must also have immediately started section 
three, which is all in his handwriting, for uno^r the entry, 
in the pedigree of SHngsby, of Mary, daughter of Thomas 
Percy and wife of Francis Slingsby, are the words ' now 
lyveth in Ao. 1567.' 

From Flower, all four sections of the manuscript appear 
to have passed to his son-in-law, Robert Glover, Somerset

Archaeologia, vol. 23, p. 335.

Herald. There are entries in Glover's handwriting in 
sections one, two, and four (pp. 40, 93, and 134). Afterwards 
it came into the possession of Ralph Brooke, Somerset 
Herald. There is a pedigree in his handwriting* at the end 
of section four (p. 154). The four sections had by then 
apparently been bound up into the present volume by either 
Flower, Glover, or Brooke, for in Wanley's index of the 
Harleian manuscripts, under the number 1571 (IT), there 
is an entry of ' Seven descents said by Mr. Mundy to be 
taken out of an old visitation of Yorkshire made by William 
Harvey alias Norroy, in the reign of King Henry VIII., 
which book was sometime in the custody of Ralph e Brooke, 
Esq., Yorke Herald.' The descents are those of Swift, 
Skelton, Eglesfield, Escot, Danyell, Aslakeby, and Thorpe. 
Of these the last four only are from the Harvey sections, 
and the first two are from the third, or Flower section of 
1567, indicating, if the book be the same, that it had then 
been bound up into one volume. 

The evidences pointing to the subsequent ownership of 
the Anstis manuscript, and the facts relating to its recent 
acquisition by Mr. Mackey, have already been detailed, 
and we may next consider the circumstances attending the 
visitations contained in it. 

WILLIAM HARVEY'S VISITATION IN 1552. 

As there is a life of Harvey in the Dictionary of National 
Biography^ from which further particulars can readily be 
obtained, it is sufficient to say here that, after serving 
successively as Hampness Pursuivant Extraordinary, Blue- 
mantle Pursuivant, and Somerset Herald, he was appointed 
Norroy king of arms, by letters patent, dated the 4th 
February, 1550, was promoted to be Clarenceux king of 
arms by letters patent dated in 1557, and died on the ,27th 
February, 1567. Noble says that, whilst Norroy, Harvey 
was sent seven times to Germany and once to France (to 
declare war against Henry II. of France), and that ' he was 
assiduous in visiting his province chiefly by deputy. J It 
is not known whether he ever went north between his 

* Whilst the editor has been careful to compare the handwritings of 
Colbarne, Flower, Glover, and Brooke, with verified specimens thereof at 
the British Museum, the Bodleian Library and the College of Arms, and 
the statements as to their authorship are made to the best of his judg- 
ment, yet his professional experience has led him to recognise the 
dangers incident to the identification of handwritings, and he does not 
positively guarantee the accuracy of his conclusions in this respect.

XXXIV VISITATIONS OF THE XORTH. 

appointment as Norroy, in 1550, and his visitation, which 
took place in the latter half of 1552. He granted arms to 
William Strickland of Boynton in Yorkshire on the 15th 
April, 1550,* to John Swinburne of Chopwell in Durham 
on the 6th September, 1551 (p. 184), and to the borough of 
Morpeth on the 20th May, 1552. t On the 15th June, 1552, 
he was granted a commission to assist him in visiting his 
province (appendix p. 199), and on the 29th June, 1552, 
amongst a list of suits to be made to the king, is one ' for 
Norroy king of arms to hold a visitation.'* 

Owing to the then difficulties of winter travel, visita- 
tions of the provinces were usually made in the summer time, 
and it was probably on the 24th of July, 1552 (the month is 
left blank in the heading reproduced on p. 1) that Harvey 
began his visitation at the house of John Eglesfield of 
Leconfield, near Beverley. The manuscript affords no clue 
to the direction of his progress onwards from that place. 
Wanley's suggestion, hereinbefore cited, that the original 
drafts of the arms and pedigrees were made on loose sheets 
of paper and afterwards bound up in any order, seems to 
have applied in this case. In the original draft, section two 
of the manuscript reproduced in this volume, Eglesfield's 
pedigree, comes at the end instead of the beginning. In 
Colbarne's extracts, forming section one of the manuscript, 
Eglesfield's pedigree comes first, but the two sections are not 
in completely reverse order throughout. In both sections 
Yorkshire, I^orthumberland, and Durham pedigrees are 
mixed up in a manner which precludes the idea that they 
follow the course of the actual progress of the visitation. 
Neither is there any date in either section to show when the 
visitation was finished, but there is interesting evidence that 
the manuscript was contemporaneous with the visitation. 

Prior to the 23rd April, 1553, the arms borne by Thomas, 
first Lord Wharton, were Sable, a maunch argent. In 1542, 
this first Lord Wharton, then Sir Thomas Wharton, defeated 
the Scots at Solway Moss and, in recognition thereof, Edward 
VI. granted him an augmentation to his shield of arms. 
That augmentation was to include the device of lions' paws, 
presumably as an allusion to his maimins- the limbs of the 
lion of Scotland. The precise alteration which the inclusion 
of this device was to make in the shield, was evidently under 
consideration when the Harvey part (section two) of the

INTRODUCTION. XXXV 

manuscript was written, for on folio 2 thereof, where the 
Wharton shield is depicted (p. b'), the quarter for the 
Wharton arms is left blank, whilst on folio 22d of the same 
part of the manuscript there are three rough sketches of 
attempts to design a shield, combining the Wharton maunch 
with the lions' paws, either by way of a canton or by way 
of a quarter. Two of these sketches are reproduced on page 
208. The ultimate form which the augmentation took, 
namely, a bordure of lions' paws in saltire round the original 
Wharton arms, is first blazoned in Harvey's grant of the 
23rd April, 1553, and this seems to show that section two of 
the manuscript was written before that date. Harvey pos- 
sibly completed the visitation before the winter of 1552-3, 
but we find him attendant upon the king's army into Scot- 
land in August, 1553 (appendix p. 201), and he may have 
taken that opportunity to complete the Northumberland 
part of his visitation. 

The handwriting of Harvey's visitation, section two of 
the manuscript, reproduced in this volume, is unidentified. 
It differs from the extant specimens of Harvey's own writing 
and more slightly from that of Colbarne. The name of the 
herald or pursuivant who accompanied Harvey on his visit- 
ation is not recorded. Edward Atkinson, Somerset Herald, 
and Lawrence Dalton, then Richmond Herald, accompanied 
him the next year into Scotland (p. 201). The rough sketches 
of the arms, also reproduced, head the pedigrees. They 
are by the same hand, done with the same ink, and are 
obviously contemporaneous with the rest of that part of the 
manuscript. They are less neat than Colbarne's sketches 
in section one. 

There are, as has been said, three manuscripts of Har- 
vey's visitation in the College of Arms, namely, E. G, D. 9, 
and D. 4. The editor has received every kindness from his 
friends in the College, but he has not, for want of time and 
opportunity, and perhaps from other reasons, compared the 
Anstis manuscript with either E. 6 or D. 9. He has, how- 
ever, taken advantage of the kind privilege afforded him to 
cursorily compare that manuscript with D. 4, and he finds 
that the latter was copied from the former. This is borne 
out by the fact that where the headings of the pedigrees are 
wanting in Anstis, C. 9. as in the instances of Darcy (p. 9), 
Thomas Carnaby (p. 27), Armorer (p. 29), John Carr (p. 31), 
John Swinburne (p. 53), and George Lord Talbot (p. 69), 
they are likewise wanting in Heralds' College D. 4. Where, 
in the Anstis manuscript, there are only coats of arms with- 
out pedigrees, or with only very incomplete pedigrees, as 
in the cases of Grey of Horton (p. 10), Carr of Ford (p. 11), 



XXXVI VISITATIONS OF THE NOKTH. 

Lisle of Felton (p. 12), Thwaites (p. 35), and Brandling 
(p. 56), the entries are altogether omitted in D. 4. That 
Heralds' College manuscript also does not contain the pedi- 
gree of Cave of Cave (p. 76), which seems to have been an 
addition by Colbarne, nor the pedigree of Eltoft (p. 93), 
which was certainly a later addition by Glover. The 
spelling of proper names is more corrupt in D. 4, than in 
Anstis, C. 9, but in other respects the two manuscripts are 
the same. 

LAWRENCE DALTON's VISITATION IN 1558. 

There is a short life of Dalton also in the Dictionary of 
National Biography.* He was a son of Roger Dalton of 
Dalton Hall, in Yorkshire, and a nephew of Ellen Dalton 
who married Christopher Barker, Garter king of arms.f 

After serving successively as Rouge Croix Pursuivant 
and Calais Pursuivant Extraordinary, he was appointed 
Richmond Herald in 1547. Although the entries of the 
heralds of that time are found to be in the main reliable, they 
were not all men of high personal character. Harvey was 
accused of falsifying, whilst he was Norroy, the pedigree of 
the Duke of Northumberland,* and Dalton, whilst he was 
Richmond Herald, was accused of extortion, for which 
offence he was pardoned by Mary, in 1556. Subsequently, 
by letters patent dated the 6th September, 1557, she 
appointed him Norroy king of arms, with power to visit and 
grant arms, but he did not undergo the consequent ceremony 
of ' creation ' as Norroy, until fifteen months afterwards, 
namely, on the 9th December, 1558, which was in the reign 
of Elizabeth (appendix p. 203). He made the visitation 
printed in this volume (pp. 95-153) between those two dates 
(6th September, 1557 and 9th December, 1558) under the 
following circumstances. 

At the beginning of the year 1558, a large English force 
was assembled at Berwick to keep in check the Scots, whilst 
Mary was engaged in the struggle with the French which 
lost us Calais. That force was commanded by Henry 
Neville, Earl of Westmorland, the queen's lieutenant- 
general of the north parts, and Lawrence Dalton, as Norroy, 
and William Colbarne, as Rouge Dragon, were the heralds

false.'

appointed to attend upon the earl in the expedition. 
According to the contemporary memorandum set out in 
the appendix (p. 202), they left London on that errand, on 
the 7th February, 155T-8, and they received at Newcastle, 
on the 20th April, an order from the earl to the treasurer 
at Berwick, to pay their conduct money and diet up to the 
17th April, 1558. Other warrants were afterwards made 
for their diet during their abode in the north, until the 
18th October, 1558, and, at that date, for their conduct 
money up to London again. 

During their stay at Newcastle and Berwick, Dalton 
and Colbarne, besides performing their duties as heralds 
attendant upon the earl, filled up their time (possibly under 
some commission not now existing) by recording the pedi- 
grees and arms of prominent men for the most part con- 
nected officially with the expedition. The heading of the 
visitation, which was made in Dalton's name as Norroy, 
shows that it was begun at Newcastle, on the 7th March, 
1557-8, and the internal evidence afforded by the contents 
of the visitation is confirmatory of its date. Bartram 
Anderson, therein described as 'now mayor of Newcastle' 
(p. 103), and William Carr, therein described as ' now 
sheriff of Newcastle ' (p. 105), were respectively mayor and 
sheriff of that town from Michaelmas 1557 to Michaelmas 
1558 ; William Swinhoe, who is described in the present 
tense as if then living (p. 112), was slain at Cornhill in 
December, 1558; Thomas Bradford, described as 'mayor 
of Berwick' (p. 128), became mayor thereof about the 27th 
March, 1557-8; George Bowes, described, without the 
prefix of 'Sir,' as 'now marshal of Berwick' (p. 131), 
had been appointed marshal prior to the 16th January, 
1557-8, and was knighted in 1560; and William_Hethering- 
ton, described as ' now captain here ' (p. 135). commanded 
100 horsemen on the Border in 1558, and had died before 
the 10th January, 1558-9. 

The pedigrees are in the handwriting of Colbarne. witli 
some few additions thereto in the handwriting of Flower. 
There is evidence that this record of Dalton's visitation, 
forming section four of the Anstis manuscript, is incom- 
plete, for in the margin of the pedigree of Dalton of Byspam, 
on folio 93 of the manuscript, opposite to the last generation 
therein entered, are inserted the words ' look more vi 
leaves afterwards,' (p. 149), whilst in this section of the 
manuscript as now existing there is only one written leaf 
which comes afterwards,* so that at least five leaves are 
apparently missing from it. 

* Not ' five leaves/ as erroneously stated in the editor's note to 
p. 149. 



XXXV111 VISITATIONS OF THE XORTH. 

The arms in this section are drawn in a smaller, neater 
style than those in the Harvey sections, and they are placed 
in the margin instead of, as in the Harvey narrative part, at 
the heads of the pedigrees. They may have been added at 
a slightly later date than the pedigree entries, and the fact 
that the crest of Francis Gale, which was not granted by 
Dalton until the 26th March, 1559, is placed in the margin 
of the Gale pedigree (p. 150), is some evidence of this. 

According to the heading of the visitation (p. 95), Dalton 
continued it until the death of Queen Mary. She died on 
the 17th November, 1558, her funeral took place in London 
on the 12th December following, and Dalton officiated at it 
as Norroy and bore ' the target with the garter and the 
crown.'* 

Three days previously thereto, namely on the 9th Decem- 
ber, 1558, Dalton underwent the ceremony of ' creation ' 
as Norroy. The record of that creation, set out in the 
appendix (p. 203), mentions that his letters patent had been 
given him twelve months before ' all which time (for the 
most part) the said Richmond had been in the north attend- 
ing upon the Earl of Westmorland, the king and queen's 
lieutenant there.' 

Anciently, heralds had been constituted at some high 
festival by the solemnity of creation only, and it was not 
until the reign of Edward IV. that the practice had been 
established of appointing them also by letters patent from 
the crown. In Dalton's day it was still considered that the 
appointment was not complete until the letters patent had 
been followed by creation, t but thirty years later it was held 
by the judges of the queen's bench, in the case of William 
Dethick, Garter king of arms, that letters patent, followed 
by the swearing in of the recipient, constituted him king of 
heralds, and that the subsequent ceremony and circumstance 
of the creation were not material.* It was also held in the 
same case that the term Garter denoted, not merely an office, 
but also a dignity, and was therefore part of William 
Dethick's name. 

The fact that Dalton made his visitation of 1558 before 
his creation, may be a reason why that visitation is not re- 
corded in the College of Arms. His colleagues of that time 
may have thought that his proceedings were irregular, 
although the subsequent decision in Dethick's case estab-

lished their validity.* Dalton successfully took the risk of 
this, but he did not take the risk of granting arms before 
his creation, for his earliest recorded grant, that to John 
Bobbins of Dover, ' a captaine,' is dated the 19th Decem- 
ber, 1558, which was ten days after the ceremony. f He 
made a few grants of arms, extending over a wide area, in 
1559, but in that year and in the first half of 1560 he was 
under a cloud and in ill-health. He had contracted a 
serious malady as a result of his own misconduct; his col- 
leagues refused to sit in chapter with him, and allowed him 
during his illness only one half of the usual fees and lar- 
gesses of his office. + Instead of Dalton and Colbarne, 
Flower, then Chester Herald, and Copgrave, then Rouge 
Croix Pursuivant, were sent, in the spring of 1560, to attend 
the Duke of Norfolk on the Border, and on their return 
there were contentions between Dalton and Flower. Col- 
barne also was probably absent from duty in 1559, for in 
June of that year he obtained a licence to travel to improve 
himself in foreign languages. || But between the Michaelmas 
of 1560 and the death of Dalton on the 13th December, 
1561, either he and Colbarne were, or Colbarne, as his 
deputy, was, in the north, engaged in making the collec- 
tion of pedigrees which are recorded in the Brit. Mus. Add. 
MS. 12477. 

THE BRITISH MUSEUM ADDITIONAL MANUSCRIPT 12477. 

This manuscript was purchased by the Museum from 
Thomas Rodd in 1842. It is bound in a parchment cover 
which is endorsed ' Visitations of Somersetshire and Lan- 
cashire, etc., 1567-1575.' The fly-leaves at each end are 
leaves from thirteenth and fourteenth century manuscripts, 
differing in detail from the fourteenth century cover- 
lining of the Anstis manuscript. The contents of the Museum 

* Mr. W. H. Rylands thinks it more likely that Dalton never made 
ready his fair copy and delivered it to the College, as he ought to have 
done, for the purpose of its being recorded or that it has been lost. 

t This statement is made on the faith of the British Museum 
Harleian manuscript 1359, which pxirports to contain particulars of 
Dalton's grants, but Mr. W. Beamont says in his book, The Lords of 
Warrington, p. 471, that Norroy [Dalton] was at Bewsey in Lancashire 
and allowed Thomas Boteler the family arms and a crest, on the 25th of 
September, 1557. If this date is correct it was only sixteen days after 
Dalton's appointment by patent, and was more than a year before his 
creation. If the visitation of Lancashire in 3567 is intended, Flower 
was then Norroy.

* VISITATIONS OF THE NORTH. 

manuscript fall into two sections. Section one consists of 
Somersetshire pedigrees, written in a cursive hand of the 
sixteenth century, different from any of the hands in Anstis, 
C. 9., and starts at folio 86 of the original foliation, thus 
showing that it was at one time preceded by other material 
which is now lost. Section two consists of the nineteen 
Northumberland, Durham, and Yorkshire pedigrees, which 
have been set out, and of the thirty-eight Lancashire pedi- 
grees which have been listed in this present volume (pp. 
157-198). Section two (forming the collection of pedigrees 
of 1560-61) is like section four of the Anstis manuscript 
(forming the extant part of Dalton's visitation of 1558) in 
the handwriting of Colbarne. The two manuscripts also 
resemble each other in the descriptive character of their 
headings, and both contain emendations in the handwriting 
of Flower. In both documents the compiler seems to have 
primarily addressed himself to recording the pedigrees and 
arms of official personages in the north, and whilst in 
Dalton's visitation of 1558 are found entries of the then 
mayor and sheriff of Newcastle, the mayor, the marshal, the 
captain, and the clerk to the captain of Berwick, and at least 
four captains of the garrison there, so, in the collection of 
1560-61, are found entries of the then mayor, sheriff and 
customer of Newcastle, and the captain of the castles of 
Tynemouth and Norham. The date of the compilation of 
the collection of 1560-61 is well established by internal 
evidence. Cuthbert Musgrave, therein described as mayor 
of Newcastle, was mayor thereof from Michaelmas, 1560 to 
Michaelmas, 1561; Francis Anderson, therein described as 
sheriff of Newcastle, was sheriff thereof for the same period ; 
William Sherwood, therein described as customer of New- 
castle, was customer there in 1560 and 1561 ; and Sir Henry 
Percy, therein described as captain of the castles of Tyne- 
mouth and Norham, held both those offices in 1561. 

The earliest folios of this second section of the manuscript 
12477, namely, those numbered from 95 to 103, contain 
Northumberland and Durham pedigrees. There is a York- 
shire pedigree at folio 104. The Lancashire pedigrees begin 
at folio 105 and continue to folio 134, and at the end, come 
one Durham and two Yorkshire pedigrees. If the sheets are 
bound up in the order in which they were written, it looks as 
if the compiler had started his collection in Northumberland, 
had then proceeded through Durham and Yorkshire into 
Lancashire, and had returned to Durham and Yorkshire on 
his way back to London. 

The arms which accompany the pedigrees of 1560-1, 
are delineated in a freer and bolder stvle than are those 



INTRODUCTION. x 

which accompany the pedigrees contained in Dalton's 
visitation of 15o8. It has already been stated that 
Dalton made but few grants oi arms or crests in 
1558 and 1559, but he was more active in that respect in 
1560 and 1561. He made at least sixteen grants in 
1560, chiefly in the latter half of that year, and he made at 
least twenty grants in 1561.* Taking the order of date of 
these grants they show no sequence of counties. Grants 
to persons resident in the above-named counties are inter- 
mixed with each other, and with a few grants to persons 
resident in southern counties outside his province. The 
latest are the grant to Sir Robert Brandling, of Newcastle, 
dated the 4th December, 1561, and the grant of a crest to 
Adam Hulton, of the Park, in Lancashire, dated the 10th 
December, 1561. Dalton died on the 13th of the same 
month of December and was buried at London. From these 
facts it looks as if Colbarne only had travelled north in 
1560-1 or 1561, to collect these further pedigrees for 
Dalton as Norroy, and that Dalton himself had remained in 
London, and had issued from thence the grants he made, 
many of which were to persons whose pedigrees are entered 
in the collection of 1560-61. t Whether Dalton was with 
Colbarne in the north of England when the pedigrees of 
1560-61, comprised in the Brit. Mus. MS. 12477, were re- 
corded, or whether he remained in London, it seems clear 
that that manuscript came into Dalton's hands before he 
died, for on one of the concluding fly-leaves of the document

the church was the ' picture ' of Lawrence Dalton, Norroy, 
between two coats of arms, attired in his tabard or herald's 
coat, and having a coronet upon his head to denote his 
office. In the Brit. Mus. Hatrl. MS. 1099, folio 69 1 is a 
drawing of another effigy of Lawrence Dalton, erroneously 
inscribed in a later hand, ' This Grave stone Lyeth in the 
church of Great St. Hellins, London, 1639.' The editor is 
indebted to Mr. W. H. Rylands, F.S.A., for the copy of the 
British Museum drawing- of the effigy, which appears as the 
frontispiece to this volume. In it, Dalton is represented at 
full length, with hands raised in prayer, wearing his tabard 
over a furred gown, his crown on his head, and on his breast a 
large collar of SS, ' remarkable as an example of the fashion 
in which that collar was then made, of gold and silver SS, 
alternately, and in front an S suspended between two port- 
cullises with a rose dependent between them.'*

face, by Norcliffe, to the Norcliffe manuscript, published 
by the Harleian Society as their volume xvi. 

After serving as Guisnes Pursuivant, Rouge Croix Pur- 
suivant, and Chester Herald, he was, on the 29th January, 
1561-2. appointed Norroy by letters patent, in the place of 
Dalton, who had died in December, 1561. 

In 1563-4, he made his well-known visitation of York- 
shire. The original manuscript of that visitation is in the 
College of Arms referenced as H. 19, and a transcript of it, 

* Collectanea Topographica et Heraldica, vol. iv. p. 112. The collar 
of SS was the Badge of the Lancastrian princes and their friends, 
partisans and dependents. Henry vn. added to it the portcullises and 
the Tudor rose shown in the drawing. A collar of SS, with variations 
is still worn by the heralds, the Lord Mayor of London, and the Lord 
Chief Justice of England. For sketches of the monuments of Dalton and

with some additions by liobert Cooke, Chester Herald, is in 
the Bodleian Library, and is referenced as Ashmole MS. 834, 
part iii. Many of the pedigrees in it bear on their face the 
datal year 1563. It would seeni that Flower made that visi- 
tation and entered the pedigrees in it, not in pursuance of 
any special commission granted to him for that purpose, but 
solely by virtue of the power to visit and give arms conferred 
by the words of his patent appointing him Norroy. 

He found himself hampered by the restricted extent of 
those powers, and petitioned the Earl Marshal for their 
extension, with the result that, on the 10th July, 15G4, 
Queen Elizabeth granted him a commission, conferring on 
him most ample powers, for his whole life, to visit his pro- 
vince from time to time personally, or by deputy, and to 
perform other ancillary and cognate acts and duties, useful 
for the support of his authority and jurisdiction (p. 204). 

In his petition he states, as has before been mentioned, 
that having served in the office of arms for thirty years, for 
the most part abroad, he had no time to come by any store 
of books of arms, at the death of any of the kings of arms 
or heralds, as Clarenceux and others had done, which 
books, the most of them, were the old records of the office 
of Norroy, for want whereof he was destitute for the supply 
of his visitation (p. 204). He had quarrelled with Dalton, 
when the latter was Xorroy and Flower was Chester Herald, 
and Barton's fellow-worker, Colbarne, since appointed York 
Herald, still evidently held his own tabular copy of Harvey's 
visitation of 1552 (section one of the Anstis manuscript), for 
he signs it as York Herald, to which post he was appointed 
in 1564. He probably held also the narrative copy of that 
visitation, for he entered it at Heralds' College, and, more- 
over, he probably held also the Balton visitation of 1558 
(section four of that manuscript) and the collection of pedi- 
grees in Balton's time of 1560-1 (Brit, Mus. Add. MS. 
12477), for both that visitation and that collection are in 
Colbarne's handwriting. 

Colbarne died in 1567, and in that same year we find a 
note so dated, in Flower's handwriting, on Balton's pedi- 
gree of Brackenbury (p. 117), and we find also, throughout 
all the sections of the Anstis manuscript, and the northern 
section of the British Museum manuscript, short additions 
in Flower's handwriting. The conclusion is that in 1567. 
at or before the death of Colbarne, the manuscripts in ques- 
tion passed to Flower, who had pleaded in his petition that 
he grreatly needed them. 

In the same year that he had acquired those manuscripts, 
he drew up the sixty-five tabular pedigrees (section three of 
the Anstis manuscript), for he dated those pedigrees also, by 



VISITATIONS OF THE NORTH. 

stating in the pedigree of Slingsby (as has before been 
mentioned), that Mary Percy ' now liveth in anno 1567.'* 
These pedigrees of Flower in 1567, contained in the Anstis 
manuscript, dift'er in most cases in the families visited, and in 
other cases in detail, from the pedigrees of 1563-4 contained 
in the College of Arms MS. H. 19, and in the Ashmole MS. 
834. They have been usually treated as comprised in 
Flower's visitation of 1563-4, but they form, it is submitted, 
a separate visitation, made under the greater powers of the 
wide commission granted to Flower in 1564. Possibly, he 
was engaged in making this visitation in Yorkshire, whilst 
his son-in-law and deputy, Robert Glover, then Portcullis 
Pursuivant, was engaged in making the visitation of the 
same year in Lancashire, published by the Chetham Society. 

Flower was an old man, verging on seventy, when he 
made his visits of 1563-4 and 1567, and the character of his 
handwriting in them testifies to that fact. He was some ten 
years older still when, in 1575, his son-in-law, Robert 
Glover, then Somerset Herald, made for him his visitations 
of that year in Northumberland, Durham, and Yorkshire. 

The original of the 1575 visitation of Northumberland 
is in the College of Arms and is there indexed ^ufidalc^ and 
copies of it are in the library of Queen's College, Oxford, 
and are there referenced manuscripts 97 and 126. There 
is also a copy of it amongst the Marquis of Ripon's manu- 
scripts at Studley Royal. The 1575 visitation of Durham, 
referenced in the College of Arms under Dugdale $, and 
H. 19, has been printed and published by Philipson in 1820 
and by Foster in 1887, from the Brit. Mus. Harl. MS. 1171. t

introduction to that part where the text of them will be

to make the present introduction complete, it is needful to 
say something here about the attempt that has already been 
made by the Harleian Society to publish Flower's visita- 
tion of 1563-4. 

THE NORCLIFFE MS. HARLEIAN SOCIETY PUBLICATIONS. 
VOL. xvi. 

The title-page of the above volume describes it as ' The 
Visitation of Yorkshire in the years 1563 and 1564, made by 
William Flower, Esquire, Norroy King of Arms. Edited 
by Charles Best Norcliffe, M.A., of Langton.' In his pre- 
face thereto Mr. Norcliffe mentions that it has been com- 
pared throughout with the College of Arms MS. D. 
2, which is usually accepted at the College as containing, 
Flower's visitation for those years. It may be contended, 
therefore, that there is no necessity to print that visitation 
in the present series, on the ground that it is already pub- 
lished. There is reason for believing, however, that 
notwithstanding the support derived from the Heralds' Col- 
lege MS. D. 2, the above title-page does not accurately des- 
cribe the contents of the volume. 

In the year 1875, the late Mr. Joseph Foster issued a 
prospectus, inviting subscribers for the proposed publica- 
tion of ' Harvey's Visitation of Yorkshire in 1563-4, with 
continuations by Ralph Brooke, Le Neve, and others; 
printed from a manuscript formerly belonging to Sir Peter 
Le Neve and afterwards (1738-1768) to Thomas Norcliffe, 
Esq., of Langton, Co. York. Editor: Rev. C. B. Norcliffe, 
M.A.' The prospectus went on to say, 'This visitation 
includes families seated in Northumberland, Lancaster, 
Cumberland, Nottingham, Durham, Leicester, Norfolk, 
Westmorland, Lincoln, etc/ That scheme for publication

failed; the Harleian Society took up the work, and their 
volume was published in 1881. There may have been some- 
thing in the manuscript to suggest that the author of it was 
Harvey, and it will be shown that all Harvey's pedigrees 
are in it ; but the facts that Harvey had ceased to be Norroy 
long before 1563-4, and that Flower held the office in those 
years, led Mr. Norcliffe, no doubt correctly, to change, be- 
tween 1875 and 1881, his attribution of its authorship from 
Harvey to Flower. 

The improbability that Flower, at his age, and under 
the disabilities stated in his petition, could have visited 
upwards of three hundred families in 1563 and 1564, scat- 
tered as they were over the wide area described in Foster's 
prospectus, and the fact that so many of the pedigrees in the 
Anstis manuscript corresponded exactly in wording and 
contents with those set out in the Harleian Society volume, 
led the editor hereof to make an analysis of that volume. 
The analysis so made shows that the Norcliffe manuscript, 
as set out in volume 16 of the Harleian Society's publica- 
tions, contains, amongst its pedigrees, the whole of Tonge's 
visitation of 1530, the whole of Harvey's visitation of 1552, 
the whole of Dalton's visitation of 1558, the whole of the 
pedigrees in the collection of 1560-1561, the greater part, 
but not the whole, of the pedigrees contained in Flower's 
visitation of 1563-4, as entered in the College of Arms MS. 
H. 19, and the greater part, but not the whole, of Flower's 
visitation of the north in 1567, as entered in the Anstis 
manuscript. Where the pedigrees in 16 Harl. Soc. differ 
in detail from those in the Anstis manuscript, the College 
of Arms MS. D. 2 accords more closely with the latter. 

About two-thirds of the pedigrees in 16 Harl. Soc. are 
taken from the above sources. The remaining one-third of 
its contents is in part composed of later pedigrees to be 
found in Foster's edition of the later visitation of 1584-5, 
in part of pedigrees earlier than 1552, but later than 1530, 
and in part of pedigrees earlier than 1530. Many of those 
earlier pedigrees correspond with the names of those in the 
'old visitation' mentioned in Constable's Roll of Arms, 
printed in 41 Surtees Society (as to which see the editor's 
observations ante), but that old visitation was apparently un- 
known to the compilers of the Noreliffe manuscript and of 
the College of Arms MS. D. 2, because it contains so many 
pedigrees of old and important families not reproduced in 
them. 

Mention is made in the Noreliffe manuscript of ' my 
grete boke of Petegres,'* thus evidencing the existence of 

* 16 Harl. Soc., p. 23, and see ibid., pp. 168n and 276r?. This may be 
an addition by Le Neve who writes of ' my great book of Yorkshire 
pedigrees' in The Book of Knights, Harl. Soc. publ., vol. viii., p. 311. 



xlviii VISITATIONS OF THE NORTH. 

another compilation of pedigrees, and tke Norcliffe manu- 
script itself would seem to be either the original or a tran- 
script of an attempt by Flower to make, from all the sources 
to which he had access, an ingathering of all the pedigrees 
up to that time recorded, either by himself or by any 
previous Norroy king- of arms, relating to families resident 
in the northernmost portion of his province. 

There are many small differences between the details 
of the pedigrees in 16 Harl. Soc. and those which are also in 
the Anstis manuscript, and these differences are for the most 
part indicated in tlip notes to this volume, but, on the 
whole, the wording shows unmistakeably that the inform- 
ation contained in them comes from the same sources. Some 
differences are the result of subsequent emendation, and 
others are the faults of copyists. For example, in the pedi- 
gree of AViddrington in 1(! Harl. Soc. p. 349, it is said that 
Sir John Widdrington had two base sons by Alice, his maid 
' in the time he was Wodward ' and this incomprehensible 
statement is copied by Foster in his Northumberland pedi- 
grees, p. 125, but the right expression is revealed by Dalton's 
visitation, to be ' in the tyme he was a ivydoer.' In the 
same way, in the pedigree of Micldleton of Silksworth, in 
16 Harl. Soc. p. 208 (n), it is said that Gilbert Middleton 
had recovered all the lands ' that pertained to his grandson,' 
but the right expression ' that pertained to his grandam' is 
recorded in Tonge's visitation in 41 Surtees Society, p. 35, 
and this right expression is also to be found in Flower's 
pedigrees made in 1567, entered in the Anstis manuscript, 
section three. The forgoing illustrations, which might be 
multiplied, tend to show that the Xorcliffe manuscript is 
only a compilation and not so reliable as the MS. Anstis, 
C. 9. 

Other more important differences arise from mistakes in 
converting the narrative form of pedigree into the tabular 
form, as in the pedigrees of Rutherford (pp. 99, 100) and 
Dent (pp. 173, 174). Not only were the pedigrees by Har- 
vey and Dalton and by the author of the collection of 1560-1 
compiled in narrative form, as shown in the text of the 
present volume, but Flower's visitation of 1563-4 too is so 
written both in H. 19 and in the Ashmole MS. 834. It is 
known also that Flower's visitation of Lancashire, in 1567, 
was drawn up in narrative form.* It may be assumed, 
therefore, that either the original compiler, or the late editor 
of the Norcliffe manuscript published in 16 Harl. Soc., con- 

*Kaines' Introduction to Flower's Visitation of Lancashire in 1567, 
p. i. 



INTRODUCTION. xx 

verted the pedigrees in that volume, or most of them, from 
the narrative to the tabular form, and this would increase 
the liability to error. 

The pedigrees in the volume 1G Harl. Soc., are placed 
in alphabetical order. This, although very convenient for 
ready reference, prevents any conclusion of origin being- 
drawn from the order in which they are put, and if, as is 
probable, they are differently grouped in the Norcliffe 
manuscript itself, such different grouping might tend to 
elucidate the sources from which that manuscript was 
compiled. 

The facts and conclusions above stated are not intended 
to detract in any way from the value of the Xorclifre manu- 
script, as printed in the volume 16 Harl. Soc. That volume 
was edited with care by the Ileverend Charles Best Norcliffe, 
who was a skilled genealogist, particularly versed in York- 
shire pedigrees. His notes alone illuminate many obscure 
points, and the entries in the volume itself have been of 
infinite assistance to local historians and genealogists for 
upwards of thirty years. They contain, in fact, nearly all 
that is in the present volume, and much besides. What is 
attempted to be pointed out, is that that volume is inaccur- 
ately described as being Flower's visitation of 1563-4, and 
that its prior publication does not lessen the desirability of 
trying to separate the pedigrees into various years, and of 
printing the collections actually made in 1563-4, in the 
present series from the source Ashmole MS. 834, compared 
with the Heralds' College MS. H. 19. 

Although the volume 16 Harl. Soc. anticipates much of 
the information herein contained, it also leaves a consider- 
able value attached to the printing also of the prior visita- 
tions and collection of pedigrees comprised in the present 
volume. They contain more first-hand information, and 
they are more nearly contemporary with the facts they 
record. The use of the present tense, frequently occurring 
in them under their several dates of 1552, 1558, and 1560-1, 
indicates what was the state of the families entered in them 
at those respective dates. An illustration of this datal value 
will be found with regard to the family of Anderson of 
Newcastle, whose pedigree is entered in all three of the 
above records of 1552, 1558, and 1560-1. It is shown by 
them that in 1552, Bertram Anderson had only one daughter 
named Isabel ; between 1552 and 1558, a second daughter, 
Barbara, had been born; between 1558 and 1560-1 a third 
daughter, Alenson, had been given him, and a comparison 
of the entry in the collection of 1560-1 with his will of 
1571, printed in Durham Wills, part iii, page 58, shows 
that his youngest son, Henry, was born between those latter

dates. The above illustration, although showing 1 clearly a 
sequence of dates, refers only to events of very minor import- 
ance, but. the times of the births, marriages, and deaths of 
members of more historic families are also iuferentially 
dated in the like manner, and the reader will find, in the 
text of the volume, confirmation of the dates of the happen- 
ing of many stirring incidents in border history, and of the 
holding, by eminent men, of public offices in the north of 
England. 

GENERAL OBSERVATIONS. 

Except that contractions appearing in the manuscripts 
have been enlarged, an attempt has been made to print the 
original manuscripts verbally and literally, thus following 
the rule cited by Raines* that ' the heralds should be allowed 
to give, in their own style, the result of their visitations/ 
Some of the many obscurities which will be found in the 
orthography of names and places are elucidated by the 
index. 

Since this volume follows, in the chronological sequence 
of northern visitations, Longstaffe's edition of Tonge's visit- 
ation of 1530, the general style of that edition has been 
observed, and the names of main-line successors have been 
printed in italics, so as to afford a guide for the eye in fol- 
lowing down the pedigrees. But. if the editor had to do the 
same work over again, he would substitute small capitals 
for the italics and leave the latter type free to indicate 
additions. The notes and the printed matter in brackets 
have been added by the editor. A list of the contractions 
used in indicating authorities frequently cited is given on 
a separate page immediately before this introduction. 

In describing the shields of arms reproduced in the text 
where the colours are tricked on the face of the shield, only 
the names attributable to the impalements and quarterings 
are given below the shield, but, where the colours of the 
shield are not so tricked, the blazon also is there given. 
The original tricks of arms in the manuscripts vary in 
size, some of them being large : they have been reduced to 
about one regular size and are copies of the originals, with 
the exception that the lines have all been straightened. 

In his notes to the pedigrees, the editor has not at- 
tempted (except in a few cases and for special reasons), to 
give references to the other published visitations in which 
the same pedigrees occur, with or without variation. That 
information is already available in a more complete form

than the editor could hope to emulate, in the late Dr. Mar- 
shall's book, The Genealogists" Guide, to which the reader is 
referred. Neither has he attempted (except in a few cases 
and for special reasons), to give additions of known ances- 
tors and successors at the beginnings and ends of pedigrees. 
For these, the reader is referred to the county histories 
specified in Dr. Marshall's book above cited, and to that 
still more fruitful source of such information, Mr. J. H. 
Clay's edition of Ditydules Visitation of Yorkshire ivith 
Additions, now in course of publication in the pages of the 
Genealogist. What he has tried to do, is to give references 
to wills, deeds, and inquests relating to persons actually 
named in the pedigrees in this volume, in order that the 
entries in those pedigrees may be verified or corrected, and 
even this he has only been able to accomplish in a partial 
and tentative manner. In the same way, he has referred 
in his notes to such grants of arms as have come under his 
notice, relating to persons mentioned in the pedigrees, in 
order that those grants may be compared with the arms and 
crests reproduced in this volume. For those references to 
arms, he is principally indebted to Mr. Arthur J. Jewers' 
' Grants and Certificates of Arms,' contributed by him to 
the Genealogist, and to the late Mr. Foster's 'Grants of 
Arms,' being the Brit. Mus. Add. MSS. '\ 7 147 -8-9-50. 

The best thanks of the editor are due to Mrs. Mackey 
for the loan of the Anstis manuscript, to the Secretary, 
Mr. William Brown, F.S.A., to Mr. H. H. E. Craster, 
M . A . , F . S . A . , Mr . J . Cra wf ord H odgson , M . A . , F . S . A . , a n d 
Mr. Richard Welford, M.A., for much kind advice and help, 
to Miss Drucker and Miss Parker for copies made at London 
and Oxford, to Miss Measham for the index, and lastly, but 
above all, to Mr. W. Harry Kylands, F.S.A., who has not 
only enriched the volume with the drawings for all the 
illustrations which appear in it, but has, throughout, en- 
couraged the editor with his valuable advice and given him 
the benefit of his skilled experience

* The above title is not in the MS. Anstis C. 9. It is taken (set in 
inverted commas) from Gutch's Collectanea Curiosa, vol. ii. p. 253, citing 
Gough's British Topography, vol. ii. p. 504. The first leaf of the MS. 
Anstis C. 9, is missing, and as the next leaf of the MS. starts with the 
pedigree of the above-mentioned John Eglesfield of Leconfield, it may be 
assumed that the above title was on the first leaf of the MS. The title 
does not appear in the Heralds' College MS. D. 4. As explained in the 
introduction the tabular version of Harvey's Visitation stands first in the 
bound up vol. MS. C. 9, and John Eglesfield's pedigree stands first in 
that version, though not in the narrative version here reproduced. The 
leaves of the narrative version appear to have been transposed from 
their original order, but are given as they stand, and in this version the 
pedigree of Francis Aslakeby stand* first.

dowghter to Sir Robert Constabell of Everyngham. 



The will dated 1438 of John Ellerker, father of the judge, is printed 
Test. Ebor. part ii. p. 69. The later visitations (16 Harl. Soc. p. 109, 
Foster's Yorkshire Visitations, p. 136) give an intermediate Sir Ralph 
Ellerker between the two Sir Ralph Ellerkers above-mentioned, and 
state that he married Jane (the name should be Joan), daughter of John 
Arden. There is much information from inquisitions and other sources 
as to the first and second Sir Ralphs in a note to Yorkshire Star Chamber 
Proceedings, p. 35. From this note it appears that the first Sir Ralph 
died 22nd Nov., 1539, and the second Sir Ralph died 26 April, 1546, 
leaving Ralph Ellerker, knight, his son and heir. The last-named was 
the Sir Ralph Ellerker, knight, of Risbye, who was buried at Rowley, 
and whose will is stated to be dated 22 Sept., 1559, and to have been 
proved 11 June, 1562. Wills in the York Registry, 1554-1568, p. 51. 
But by inq. p.m. taken on the 22nd Dec., 1558 (1 Eliz.) it was found that 
he died on the 24th Sept., 1558. Edward Ellerker, his eldest son and 
heir, was aged 21. For the grant of a crest by Christopher Barker, 
Garter, on the 20th March, 1545, to the second Sir Ralph Ellerker, who 
took the cre.st from the Dauphin at Boulogne, see Genealogist, 1st 
series, vol. i. p. 290, where the grant is set out in full, and see also 
Diet. Nat. Biog., vol. xvii. p. 243. Barker also made a grant to Edward 
Ellerker on the 20th Nov., 1545. Foster's Grants of Arms B.M. Add. MS.

dowghter of Sir John Conyers of Horneby, and by her had

dowghter of Reynold Warcope of Smerdale, and by her had 
yssu Thomas, fyrst Lord Wharton; Xpofer, ijnd son; 
Janne, maryed to John Fulthrope ; Florence, maryed to 
Thomas Foster, of Ethelston. 

SIR THOMAS WHARTON, fyrst Lord Wharton, maryed

by her had yssu Sir Thomas, son and heyre ; Syr Henry,

SYR THOMAS WHARTON, knyghte, sone and heyre to 
Thomas, Lord Wharton, maryed Lady Anne RatclyfE, 
dowghter to [blank] Therle of Sussex, and by her had yssu. 



Thomas, first Lord Wharton, died in 1568, and was buried in Helaugh 
Church, where is a fine altar tomb to him and his second wife, Anne, 
daughter of Francis, fifth Earl of Shrewsbury, who survived him some 
years. There is also a monument to him and his two wives in Kirkby 
Stephen church. Arch. Aeliana, 1st series, vol. ii. p. 224. 

On the 23rd April, 1553, William Harvey, Norroy, signed a grant by 
Edward VI. to Sir Thomas Wharton, knight, Lord of Wharton, of an 
augmentation to his ancient arms, such augmentation being a bordure 
engrailed gold, remplised with lyons legs in saltire rased gules, armed 
azure. The grant is set out in Genealogist, vol. viii. p. 127. It was given 
for services at Solway Moss. 

It will be noted that in the tricked shield of arms reproduced the 
quartering for Wharton is left blank. This was probably because the 
form of the augmentation granted as above in 1553 had not been fixed 
upon. On page 22 d. of the manuscript are sketches of shields showing 
the Wharton maunch in two cases cantoned with, and in one case 
quartered with the lions' legs in saltire and these are evidently attempts 
to settle upon the proposed new Wharton shield of arms.

HARVEY'S VISITATION IN 1552. 11 



THE PEDEGRE OF SIR THOMAS GREY OF HORTON. 

Fol. 3. 



The pedigree is left blank by Harvey, but a shield of arms is tricked 
which is here reproduced. It will be observed that the arms differ from 
the ordinary Grey of Horton arms, argent, two bars azure on a bend 
gules a bezant, which first appear in the visitation of 1575, and consist 
of the Horton arms borne according to Burke's Armoury by the extinct 
baronetly family of Horton of Chadderton in Lancashire. The arms for 
Grey of Horton in Constable's Roll, Surtees Society, vol. 41, app. p. viii. 
are barry of six, azure and argent, a bend gules. The impalement 
is unfinished. The arms intended are probably those of Widdrington 
or Clavering. The Horton arms are evidently formed by differencing 
the arms of Grey of Heton. For pedigree see Dalton's visitation post. 



THE PEDEGRE OF THOMAS CARE OF FORD. 

Fol. 3. 

THOMAS CARE, ijd son to John Care, maryed Elyzabeth, 
dowghter of Wylliani Heron and cossyn and heyre to Sir

eldyst; Agnes, Elyzabeth. 



The will dated Aug., 1551, of John Carr of Hetton, father of Thomas 
Carr, is printed in Durham Wills, part i. p. 138. By the inq. p.m. of 
Thomas Carr taken 9 March, 1560, it was found that he died 26 Jan., 
1558, and that William Carr, his son and heir, was aged 9.

When them exchanged Bellasis for the Henknowl." 

Several versions of the above rhyme appear in Denham Tracts, ed. 
1891, p. 96. One was preserved in Denham's day, inscribed on a belt 
encircling the arms of Bellasis in Auckland St. Andrew. It refers to an 
exchange made in 1380 with the prior and convent of Durham. See also 
Foster's Yorkshire Pedigrees, Misc. Gen. et Her., new series, vol. i.

Wylliam, inaryed Dorothe, dowghter to Thomas Forster of

Ursula [da. and coh. wife to Edward Woderington] ; and 
Mabell, coheyres to Sir Regnold [which Mabell married to 
George Lawson]. 



The words within square brackets are in the handwriting of Anstis. 

Sir Reginald Carnaby was sent by Secretary Cromwell in 1536 to 
request the seventh Earl of Northumberland to withdraw his denial of a 
pre-contract between him and Queen Anne Boleyn. Brenan's House of 
Percy, vol. i. p. 230. Sir Reginald Carnaby obtained the grant from the 
Crown of Hexham Priory in 1538. Raine's Priory of Hexham, vol. i. 
Surtees Soc. no. 44, preface, p. cxxx. The grant to him by Hawley 
Norroy in 1534 of an augmentation to his shield and crest is printed 
in New History of Northumberland, vol. x. p. 408. A complete account 
of the family will be found in that volume. 

The second and third quarterings of the impalement in the repro- 
duced shield, namely, argent, on a bend cotised sable three martlets or, 
are usually attributed to Ederston or Adderstone, and it is said that 
Thomas Forster who heads the pedigree of Forster of Adderstone married 
Elizabeth, daughter and heiress of Roger de Ederston. New History of 
Northumberland, vol. i. p. 228. Blair, Northumberland Armorials, p. 99. 
Raine, North Durham, p. 306. But those arms are not assigned to 
Ederston by either Burke or Papworth, and the only authority for them 
is a manuscript variant of Jenyn's Roll cited by Mr. Blair. The only 
authority cited for the marriage is a visitation of 1585 for Northumber- 
land, which does not seem to exist. In the visitation of 1575 the marriage 
of the first Thomas Forster is left blank, and both in that visitation 
and in the visitation of 1615 the first marriage recorded is that of 
Thomas Forster the third to a daughter of Baron Hilton. The family of 
Ederston never seem to have owned the manor of that name. It was 
held by the Chartres familv as late as 1386. Feet of Fines 10 Ric. 11, 
and by the first Thomas Forster of Adderstone in 1402. The usual arms 
of the Hiltons were argent, two bars azure, but in the visitation of 
Durham in 1615 Philipson's edition, p. 80, the arms on a bend cotised 
three martlets, with a mullet for a difference are assigned to Hilton of 
Dyons. They are more properly the arms of Hinton, but in the writer's 
view the Ederston marriage is apocryphal, and the arms are more 
probably for Hilton than for Ederston.

The words within .square brackets are additions to the manuscript

of a single horse in the first and fourth quarters of the impalement in

No pedigree is given by Harvey for Thwaites, but two shields of 
arms are tricked in the narrative part of the manuscript, one on folio 5 
under the unfinished heading of " Th," contains the arms argent on a 
fess sable between three fleurs-de-lis gules as many torteaux, attributed 
with bezants instead of torteaux by Burke to Thwaites of Bemerstone 
in the county of Derby. The other on folio 10 d. under the heading of 
Thaytte of Thaytte, contains the arms argent, a cross sable fretty or, 
usually attributed to Thwaites of Thwaites. Both shields are accom- 
panied by the same crest which is described above it as a " demy- 
faulcon." The second shield of arms is probably a correction of the 
first. Both shields and the crest are reproduced.

After the death of this Sir John Ratclif that dyed sans yssue, James 
Radclif, the sonne of Nicholas, sued Sir George Radclif for the landes of 
Derwentwater, as beinge descended of the elder brother. But Sir George 
a Hedged that his father, Sir Cutbet, bought the title of Richard Radclif, 
sonne and heire of Sir Richard Radclif, knight. And James said he had 
no right, for he was never seased of any landes of Derwentwater, and 
that his father, Sir Richard Radclif, was a traytor, and faught against 
King Henry the vijth ,and was slayne in King Richardes feld, and lost 
his title and his sonnes bothe : and Thomas Radclif, father to Sir 



HARVEY'S VISITATION IN 1 552. 41 

Richard, was on lyve, after the feld was foughten, and went to King 
Henry to crave pardon for his sonnes offences, sayeng they were diso- 
bedient children to him, for they put out his wyf's eyes. And the suyte 
contyneweng betwixt theim, they sought out the entayle of Thomas 
itadclife, and it was found that Edward Radclif had put himself before 
his elder brother, Nicholas Radclif, in the intayle, for so it was in the 
recordes, by reason wherof it fell from them bothe to the right heires of 
Thomas Radclif, which was Anne, the sister of Sir John Radclif, who 
dyed without yssu, which Anne aforesaid was daughter to John Radclif, 
who was eldest sonne and heire to Thomas Radclif. 



The above account of the Radcliffe family given by Mr. Francis Dacre 
is interesting. He states that Nicholas Radcliffe, from whom were 
descended the Radcliffes of Keswick and Ullock Close, was elder brother 
of Sir Edward Radcliffe who married the Dilston heiress. If so, the 
present representatives of the house of Derwentwater are the descendants 
of the Keswick and Ullock Close Radcliffes. Francis Dacre's statement is 
not followed by St. George in the 1615 pedigree (Genealogist, vol. i. 
p. 308), but may be accepted since it goes to explain the claims to the 
Derwentwater estates made by Nicholas's son and grandson, as to which 
see Archaeologia Aeliana, 2nd series, vol. 2, page 142. (Note by Mr. 
H. H. E. Craster.) 

The Francis Dacre who gave the information and had married the 
heiress of the Radcliffes was the youngest son of William, Lord Dacre. 
Full particulars concerning him and his son, Randall Dacre, the last 
male heir of the house of Dacre, will be found in The household books of 
Lord William Howard, no. 68, Surtees Soc. publ. introduction, pp. xi.- 
xxi. 

When William Colbarne entered Harvey's visitation in the book of 
the Heralds' Office D.4, he omitted the Radcliffe pedigree; possibly, as 
given to Harvey, it had already been qiiestioned. 

The inventory dated 5 June, 1588, made after the death of Sir George 
Radcliffe is printed in Durham Wills, part ii. p. 325.

The will of John Swiuburn, the natural son of Thomas, is said by 
Surtees to have been dated 20 Sept., 1545, and to have been proved at 
York, but it is not to be found in the Yorkshire Archaeological Society's 
indexes of wills in that registry. His son, John Swinburn, the extractor 
of the pedigree, was a chief leader in the Rising of the North in 1569, 
was attainted, fled to Flanders, and is believed to have died abroad. 
Besides the sons above-mentioned he had three other children. They all 
died without leaving issue. Surtees History of Durham, vol. ii, p. 278. 
Arms were granted to him by Harvey, 6 Sept., 1551, ibid. No arms are 
given in the Harvey manuscript Anstis C.9, but the arms as granted are 
given in the Anonymous Visitation of 1560-1 and are set out post. 

* Harvey also gives under the pedigree of John Carr of Hetton ante 
a third marriage of George Swinburn, namely, with Janet, daughter of 
John Carr.

ARCHBUSHOP OF YORKE. 

Folio 20. 

The right reverent father in God, ROBERT HOLGAT, 
Archbushope of York, maryed Barbara, dowghter of Roger 
Wentworth of Elmsale. 



For a biography of Eobert Holgate, who was president of the north, 
1538-54; archbishop of York, 1545-54; deprived for being married, 1554; 
and died 1555; see Diet. Nat. Biog., vol. xxvii. p. 128. 

His will dated 27 April, 1555, and proved 5 Dec., 1556, is printed in 
North Country Wills, part i. p. 232. By it he gives his executors besides 
other property the site of the late priory of Old Malton in Yorkshire 
and lands belonging to the late priory of the White Friars in Newcastle- 
upon-Tyne upon trust to found a hospital for poor people at Hemsworth 
in Yorkshire. 

Arms were granted him by William Fellows, Norroy, 29 June, 1539.

In 1547 and 1550 Thomas Metham, esq., and Dorothea, his wife, were 
deforciants in fines relating to properties in Yorkshire, and in 1550 
Thomas Metham described as Thomas Metham, senr., was deforciant in 
another similar fine. Yorkshire Fines, part i. pp. 145, 147, 148. 

The crest only is depicted in the MS. The shield for arms is left 
blank. The crest reproduced is taken from the tabular part of Harvey's 
visitation as being the better representation, but in the crest delineated 
in the narrative part, the colours of the buck's horns are also tricked as 
being party-coloured azure and argent. Both crests differ in detail and 
colour from that given in Thomas Wall's Book of Crests. The Ancestor, 
vol. xii. p. 71.

THE PEDEGRE OF SIR ROBERT BRANDLYNG OF 
NEWCASTELL. 

Folio 23. 
[Here follows in the MS. a blank shield and no pedigree.] 



Owing possibly to some difficulty in satisfying the heralds. Sir 
Robert Srandling's pedigree is left blank not only by Harvey in his 
visitation in 1552, but also by Dalton in the latter's subsequent visitation 
in 1557. It was not until the 4th Dec., 1561, that he got his grant of 
arms from Dalton a few days before Dalton's death, and it is only in the 
anonymous visitation of 1560-1561 that his pedigree first appears. 
Particulars of his grant of arms, will, etc., will be found in notes to 
Dalton's visitation and to the visitation of 1560-1561 post.

[No arms are given in the manuscript, and this pedigree is not in the 
narrative part of the Harvey visitation MS. It is therefore inserted from 
the tabular part of the MS. of that visitation. One page, being folio 31, 
has been torn out of the narrative part, and as the tabular part is evidently 
taken and made up from the narrative part it may be that the missing 
page contained the narrative form of this pedigree. It is the only one 
(except Eltoft which has been added in a later handwriting) to be found in 
the tabular part which is not in the narrative part. On the other hand 
there are several pedigrees, mainly of Northumberland families, in the 
narrative part which are not in the tabular part, the compiler of the tabular 
part having apparently confined his extracts from the narrative part to the 
Yorkshire families to be found therein. The pedigree is not in the Heralds 
College MS. D.4. It is in the same handwriting of Colbarne, but as Edward 
Saunders was not made a judge of the Common Pleas until 4 Oct., 1553, the 
tabular part may be of slightly later date than the narative pedigrees.]

NORTHE ESTE AND WESTE PARTYES OF ENGLONDE FROM

KINGE PHYLLYPP AND QUENE MARY* &c., AND SO 
CONTYNEWED THE SAME TYLL THE DEATH OF THE SAYD 
QUENE A. 5 ET 6* [1558]. 



This visitation is usually described as made in 1557 and 1558, but it 
took place solely in 1558. It will be seen from the above heading that it 
was begun 8 March, 1557, old style, which is 8 March, 1558, new style, 
and was continued until the death of Queen Mary, which took place 
17 Nov., 1558. That the year was 1558 is also borne out by Harl. MS. 
6069, fol. 103, containing an account of payments made to the heralds 
attending the army into Scotland. From this account, which is set out 
in the appendix to this volume, it appears that Dalton's pay began 
7 Feb., 1558, new style, and continued until 18 Oct., in the same year. 

* The words in italics are in the slightly later hand of 1567, probably 
that of Flower.

SIR ROBERT BRANDLYNG, KNIGHT, OF

Folio 72. 



As mentioned in a note to Harvey's Visitation ante p. 56, Dalton, 
although he began his visitation with Sir Robert Brandling's name, did 
not insert his pedigree and he did not grant him arms until the 4th 
December, 1561. The shield he then granted him, namely, Brandling 
quartering Browne and on an inescutcheon of pretence Halnaby quarter- 
ing Surtees and the shield which at the same date he granted to his 
brothers, namely, Thomas and Henry, Brandling quartering Browne, 
Harl. MS., 1359, both differ in arrangement from the shield in the 
margin of the Dalton manuscript and here reproduced. In the Dalton 
manuscript the arms of the families visited do not head the text as in 
the Harvey manuscript, but are put in the side margin on the left of 
the writing. For further information as to the Brandling family and 
their arms see the pedigree in the collection of pedigrees 1560-1561 post 
and the notes thereto.

doughtre to William Byveley of Homelton, and hadde issue

It will be seen from the above pedigree that Robert Rutherford's 
eldest son was Thomas Rutherford, then of Middleton Hall, who supplied 
the pedigree, and that Robert Rutherford's second son was John 
Rutherford. Thomas Rutherford is in the above pedigree stated to have 
married Margaret Selby, and to have had children by her. But in 1567, 
after the death of Thomas Rutherford, his brother, John Rutherford, 
brought a suit against Thomas Rutherford's children George, Roger

and others before the Council of the North, who by their decree recited 
that it appeared that the said Thomas Kutherford did first marry one 
Janet Beadnell, and that afterwards in her life-time and without 
divorce, he did also marry the said Margaret Selby and by her, in the 
life-time of the said Janet Beadnell, had issue the said George and 
Roger, so that they were both bastards and could not inherit; therefore 
it was ordered that the said John Eutherford should enjoy the inherit- 
ance without interruption by the defendants. Ford Castle MSS. cited 
in Mr. J. C. Hodgson's article, "The Three Middletons," in Arch. 
Aeliana, 3rd ser. vol. vii. pp. 137-8. 

* This first wife is not mentioned in 16 Harl. Soc. 

t These children are wrongly stated in 16 Harl. Soc., being confused 
with the children of John, son of Henry, which are repeated. Foster 
notes the error in his Northumberland Visitation Pedigrees, but had not 
the information necessary to correct it.

The above is the only Cheshire pedigree appearing in the manuscript. 
It differs in detail from the later pedigrees of the same family set out 
in Flower's Visitation of Cheshire, 1580, 18 Harl. Soc. Publ. p. 41, and 
in St. George's Visitation of Cheshire, 1613, Record Society for 
Lancashire and Cheshire Publ., vol. 58, p. 36, and Harl. Soc., 
vol. 59, p. 36. Cheshire was within Dalton's province as Norroy. 
He granted arms to several Cheshire families, Harl. MS. 1359, 
and it is possible that he visited Cheshire and that his records for 
that county are lost. In Harl. MS. 1174, there is a note in the hand- 
writing of Le Neve, preceding some Cheshire pedigrees, which is as 

* The words in these brackets are interlined in the manuscript.

follows : "This descent as it is entered in the Visitation of Cheshire, 
Daulton Norroy, K. of Armes." So many, however, of these pedigrees by 
Dalton relate to officials and officers at Berwick and on the Border (see 
pedigrees of Eure, Bradford, Bowes and Hetherington post) that it is 
more probable that Dalton was supplied with the pedigree by Sir 
William Brereton "which now is" at Berwick, for in 1558, the year of the 
visitation, Sir William Brereton was serving under Sir Henry Percy and 
in the Berwick garrison, Eidpath, Border History, pp. 190, 191 (nn).

Bertram Anderson above described as " now mayor of Newcastle," 
was mayor of that borough from Michaelmas, 1551, to Michaelmas, 
1552, and again from Michaelmas, 1557, to Michaelmas, 1558, Welford, 
History of Newcastle and Gateshead, vol. ii. pp. 276, 283, 322, 328. This 
visitation refers to the second period because his colleague, William 
<3arr, whose pedigree is given a few pages later on and who is therein 
described as " now sheriff of Newcastle," was only sheriff from Michael- 
mas, 1557, to Michaelmas, 1558. Bertram Anderson was eldest son of 
Henry Anderson, whose pedigree is given in Harvey's visitation ante 
p. 73. It will be observed that between Harvey's visitation in 1552 and 
Dalton's in 1558, Bertram Anderson's daughter, Barbara, had been born. 
Between Dalton's visitation in 1558 and the collection of pedigrees 1560- 
1561 printed post a fourth daughter, Alenson, had been born. His will, 
dated 8 March, 1570-1, and proved 12 June, 1571, printed in Durham 
Wills, part iii. p. 58, mentions also a younger son, Bertram, who was 
therefore born after 1560. Biographies of both Bertram Andersons will 
be found in Welford's Men of Mark twixt Tyne and Tweed, vol. i. pp. 47, 
51. Durham inquisitions on the deaths of the Bertram Anderson who 
supplied the pedigree and of his son, Henry Anderson, above-named, and 
of Isabella, widow of the same Henry, are abstracted in 44 D.K.R., 
P.E.O , app. p. 314.

There is a blank shield with a canton in blank in the manuscript and 
no arms are given. 

The following arms and cre.st were confirmed to Thomas or John 
Wilson of Kendal in 1586, namely, 1 and 4, argent, three wolves' heads 
couped sable vulned gules; 2 and 3, per fess indented or and gules, 
three mullets of six points counterchanged. Crest : a crescent or with 
fire proper from between the horns. 1 and 4, Wilson; 2 and 3, Ossio an 
Italian. Jewers, Grants of Arms, Genealogist, vol. xxix. p. 187, citing 
Stowe MS., 670; Harl. MS., 1359. 

The will of William Wilson of Howgill, dated 24 September, 1545, 
and proved 22 May, 1546, is printed in North Country Wills, part i. 
p. 198. In it he mentions his brother Thomas and his brother George, 
and he appoints Thomas Wylson of Strickland Gate and Kendal a 
supervisor. The will of Thomas Wylson of Strickland Gate dated 
14 September, 1553, is printed in Richmond Wills, p. 77. 

The above pedigree, without addition, appears as part of the visita- 
tion of 1615, in Bridger's edition of 1853, and again in Foster, Visitations 
of Cumberland and Westmorland , but both appear to have taken as their 
authority Harl. MS., 1435, a collection of pedigrees the dates of which 
cannot be relied on. The original of that visitation, as is well known, 
does not exist. 

The dates of the above wills support the obvious view that the above 
pedigree, like the others in the Dalton part of the manuscript, Anstis, 
C. 9, was made in 1558, and confirmation of this could probably be 
obtained from the Kendal parish registers which are extant from 1558 
to 1561 and from 1570 to 1587. 

A later pedigree of 1664, commencing with Thomas Wilson of 
Stavely Hall, who died circa 1625, is printed in Foster, .vttp. cit. p. 145.

It is possible that a generation is missing between Sir John Roddam 
who fell at Towton in 1461 and William Roddam above described as 
his son. One John Roddam is said to have purchased lands in Reunington 
in 1520, Lambert MS. penes the Northumberland County History Com- 
mittee. William Roddam heads the muster roll of Little Houghton in 
1538, Arch. Aeliana, 1st ser. vol. iv. p. 162. The John Roddam who 
married Lucy Swinburne, levied a fine in 1553 of Roddam, Little Hough- 
ton, Rennington and other lands to trustees for himself for life with 
remainder to John Roddam, his son, with remainders to Thomas 
Roddam and Matthew Hoddam, brothers of John, Lambert MS. In

Sir Henry Widdringfton died 26 August, 1517, Hodgson, History of 
Northumberland, part u. vol. ii. p. 235. Hodgson's pedigree loc. cit.

Sir John Widdrington and his son Henry were in 1552 committed to the 
Tower by the House of Commons for an assault upon Sir Robert 
Brandling, then M.P. for Newcastle, Welford, His tor y of Newcastle 
and Gateshead, vol. iii. p. 284. As Sir Robert Brandling was the host 
at Newcastle of Dalton, Norroy, this may perhaps account for the trace 
of scandal apparent in the pedigree. The will of Hector Widdrington, 
Sir John Widdringtou's illegitimate son, dated 28 April, 1593, and 
proved 15 June, 1593, is printed in Durham Wills, part ii. p. 232. The 
will of Sir Henry Widdrington, son of Sir John and husband of Barbara 
Gower, dated 15 Feb., 1592-3, is printed in Durham Wills, part ii.

who married Ralph Swinhoe was probably a great-aunt of Sir Guischard. 
Kaine's pedigree loc. cit. supplies other information; it differs in 
detail from this pedigree. Gilbert Swinhoe who supplied this pedigree 
died 3 June, 1560, Kaine, North Durham, p. 184. Two of the sons of 
Gilbert Swinhoe who supplied the pedigree, namely, William Swinhoe, 
who is described by Dalton as being alive when he made the visitation, 
and Ralph Swinhoe, each commanded 100 horsemen on the Border in 
1558, and William was slain at Cornhill where he lay with his garrison 
on the 22 Dec., 1558. Cal. State Papers Foreign, 1558-9, p. 47. The

opposite the last interlineation. Interesting abstracts,, too long to be 
reproduced here, of inquests after the deaths of Anthony Brackenbury 
husband of Agnes Wycliffe, and of Richard Brackenbury and Henry 
Brackenbury his sons, are contained in 44 D.K.R., P.R.O. app. pp. 337, 
341. They narrate the entails on Southbedburn and Sellaby, give earlier 
and later generations of the family than those set out in the above 
pedigree, and afford confirmatory evidence both of the original entries 
and of the additions made by Flower. Between Dalton's visitation in 
1558 and Flower's additions made in 1567 Dorothy Brackenbury had 
married Robert Aske, Grace Brackenbury had married Thomas Tunstall, 
Ann Brackenbury, who was only twelve years old in 1556, ibid. p. 336, 
had married, first one Stephenson and secondly Robert Tunstall, and 
their uncle William who had supplied the pedigree had died and been 
succeeded in the entail by their uncle Henry Brackenbury. 

By a Yorkshire inquisition taken 30 March, 1564, it was found that 
William Brackenbury, son and heir of Anthony Brackenbury of Sellaby 
in the County of Durham died at Sellaby 6 Jan., 1563-4 without issue 
male, and that Henry his brother and heir was aged 35.

the will of Elizabeth Brackenbury, daughter of Sir Robert Brackenbury, 
lieutenant of Tower, printed in Test. Ebor. part iv. p. 233. The will 
of Anthony Brackenbury dated 14 Nov., 1552, and proved 27 June,

Foster's elaborate pedigree of Eure in Visitations of Yorkshire, 
pp. 607-617 gives full particulars of these generations. This pedigree 
by Dalton is useful as giving the original contemporary information. 
It has evidently been copied in 16 Harl. Soc. with some errors which 
Foster has followed. William, second Lord Eure, was appointed Captain 
of Berwick by patent dated shortly prior to 4th Jan., 1558-9, Cal. State 
Papers Foreign, 1558-9, p. 72. The divorce proceedings between Mary, 
daughter of George, Lord Darcy, and William, second Lord Eure, 
mentioned in Foster's pedigree are printed in Surtees Society publ., 
vol. xxii. p. 54. The following are references to Eure wills which have 
been printed or abstracted. The notes of the editors of the wills give 
much additional information.

Thomas Bradford who supplied the pedigree was mayor of Berwick 
in 1558, having succeeded Robert Barrow who was slain the 27 March, 
1557 old style, in the fray between the Herons and the Carrs over the 
estate of Ford. Thomas Bradford was also mayor of that town in 1559, 
1561, and 1564, and was M.P. for Berwick in 1555. His father, Ralph 
Bradford, had served as mayor of the same town in 1553 and his son, 
Robert Bradford was mayor thereof in 1572, Scott, Berwick upon Tweed, 
pp. 477, 479. 

Two inquisitions on the death of his great-grandfather, the Thomas 
Bradford wno married Eleanor Horsley, are abstracted in a note to New 
History of Northumberland, vol. ii. p. 301, and extracts from the 
Berwick Guild Book illustrative of the latter portion of the pedigree 
will be found ibid., p. 302 (n). See also some further notices of the 
family in Proceedings, Newcastle Society of Antiquaries, 3 ser. vol. iv. 
p. 129. By inquisition taken at Newcastle-upon-Tyne, 7 April, 1618, it 
was found that Thomas Bradford (presumably the Thomas Bradford who 
married Jane Clavering) died 1 Sept., 1612, and that Thomas, his son and 
heir, was aged 60. The shield of arms is left blank in the manuscript.

1553 he and his second wife Dorothy received from Queen Mary a pardon

At the foot of the above pedigree it is sketched again in tabular 
form in the handwriting of Glover without addition. It will be noted 
that in Harvey's Visitation ante p. 11, he gives Sir Thomas Grey of 
Horton the arms of Horton, but does not venture on any pedigree. 
Dalton's attempt at a pedigree as given above is full of blanks in the 
earlier part and notwithstanding the elaborate pedigree of the family 
of Grey in Baine, North Durham, p. 326, there is still much obscurity 
around the early family history both of Grey of Heton and of Grey of 
Horton. No arms are given by Dalton in the manuscript.

The word Bletton is a corruption for Bleatarn in the township of 
Laversdale in the parish of Irthington in Cumberland in which parish 
there is a charity, established in 1792, called Hetheringfton's Charity. 
The name Hetherington is at present well represented in that parish. 

The description of William Hetherington as " nowe capteyne here " 
is omitted in 16 Harl. Soc. where the pedigree is reproduced without 
other alteration or addition, but the words " a captaine " are retained 
and the pedigree goes only down to the same date (1558) in Richard 
Mundy's manuscript, Harl. MS. 1374 (2) printed in vol. vii. of the 
Harleian Society's publications as the Visitation of Cumberland by 
Richard St. George, Norroy, in 1615. In December, 1558, Captain 
Hetherington or Etherington commanded 100 horsemen on the Border. 
He had died by 10 Jan., 1558-9, Cal. State Papers Foreign 1558-9, pp. 47,

Conyers last mentioned in the pedigree married Mary, daughter of 
Thomas Layton and died 7 Oct., 1558. 

In the P.R.O. List of Sheriffs, Cuthbert Conyers is given as under- 
sheriff of Durham county in 1552 and Robert Tempest as under-sheriff in 
1558. The names of the sheriffs of Durham from 1549 to 1575 are not 
given therein. In the margin of the pedigree the arms of the fathers 
of the wives of the Conyers are described as in 16 Harl. Soc., but no arms 
are given for Conyers in the manuscript. 

In Arch. Aeliana, 2 ser. vol. xv. p. 214, are three fine illustrations 
from photographs of the Conyers Falchion and an article thereon by 
Mr. Charles Clement Hodges. It was exhibited by Sir Edward W. 
Blackett at a meeting of the Newcastle Society of Antiquaries on 
29 April, 1891. 

Mr. H. W. E. Davis, editor of Regesta Regum Anglo-Normannorum, 
thinks that the charter of Henry i. supra, p. 139, was addressed to the 
custodes of the bishopric sede vacant e ie 1129-33, and that the word 
pads is an interpolation by Dalton.

1514, p. 49, and to the effects of Edmund Dalton of Kirby Misperton 
22 Oct., 1529, Wills in the Yorkshire Registry 1514 to 1553, p. 49. By 
inquisition taken at York, 18 Sept., 1530, it was found that Edmund 
Dalton died 31 May, 1530, that Roger his son and heir was aged 14 and 
was married to Anne, daughter of Christopher Whalley and that his 
other sons were William, Walter, Thomas and Christopher. Henry 
Neville, Earl of Westmorland, who had been lieutenant-general of the 
army in the North in 1558 by his will dated 18 Aug., 1563, bequeathed to 
Roger Dalton a black gelding, from which it may be inferred that Roger 
Dalton was probably like his cousin, Lawrence Dalton, Norroy, in 
attendance upon the Earl on the Border. The will of Roger Dalton 
"sometymes of Kirkby Misperton and nowe of Knockmoan in the Countie 
of Waterford in Irelande," dated 9 Oct., 1595, and proved 27 April, 1597, 
is printed in North Country Wills, part ii. p. 167.

issue Alys and other doughters. 

ALYCE DALTON, one of the doughters and heyres wedyd to 
William Gryffyth of Penryn in Carnarvanshere, and had 
issue Sir William and Je.nnett. 



In the margin in the above pedigree opposite to the last generation 
are inserted in the manuscript the words " Loke more vi leaves after- 
warde," but in the manuscript as now existing there are only five leaves 
which come after the above pedigree. This is unfortunate, for the 
missing part would probably have given the descent of Lawrence Dalton 
the herald as in 16 Harl. Soc. p. 87. 

On the seal of Lawrence Dalton set to the grant of a crest to Thomas 
Venables, Baron of Kinderton, dated 2 Nov., 1560, are the same quartered 
arms and crest for Dalton as are in this manuscript Anstis C. 9, and 
reproduced here. On the seal the arms and crest are encircled by the 
motto 71 sera come dieu plaira. The seal is tricked in Ashmole MS. 833, 
30 fol. 235. The same seal from Dalton's grant of arms to John Bennett 
dated 6 Nov., 1560, is reproduced on page 156. To the shield given in the 
manuscript for Sir Robert Dalton of Bispham, reproduced on the opposite 
page, there is a note in Flower's handwrit : ng " this have not to do with 
Flemynge cote " ;ind this would appear to be correct.

11 March, 1513-14, is printed ibid. By inquisition taken 10 March, 1487-8 
it was found that Sir Thomas Gower died 22 Aug., 1485. John Gower, 
aged 14, was at the date of the inquisition his son and heir, and by

of Sir John Gower of Stittenham, knight, dated 1 Sept., 1513, and proved

Gower who supplied the pedigree and who had married Anne Mauleverer

VISITATIONS OF THE NORTH. 




The personal seal with arms and crest of Lawrence 
Dalton, Norroy, attached to the grant of arms by him to 
John Bennett of Newcastle-upon-Tyne dated 6 Dec., 1560. 
Reproduced in exact size from a photograph of the original. 



PEDIGREES COLLECTED IX 1560-1561. 157 




THE NORTHERN COUNTIES 

COLLECTED IN 1560 AND 1561, 



PROBABLY BY 



LAWREXCE DALTON, NORROY KING OF ARMS, 

OR HIS DEPUTY. 



Brit. Museum, Add. MS. 12,4", 



The reasons for attributing this collection of pedigrees to Lawrence 
Dalton, Norroy, or his deputy, will be found more fully treated of in the 
introduction. Briefly, they are (1) that he was king of arms of the north 
parts of England at the time the collection was made and would have 
resented the encroachment of any other herald, (2) that the first pedigree 
after that of Musgrave, mayor of Newcastle (who had precedence there), 
is that of Sir Robert Brandling, with whom Dalton started his visitation 
in 1558, (3) that Dalton granted or confirmed arms, or a crest, to at 
least seven of the persons whose pedigrees are given in the collection, 
(4) that the handwriting of the British Museum manuscript of this 
collection is so closely similar to that of Dalton's visitation of 1558 in 
the manuscript Anstis C. 9, as to lead to the belief that the two hand- 
writings are identical, (5) that in both manuscripts the style of the 
headings and the wording of the contents are similar and the inter- 
lineations in both are in one handwriting probably that of Flower, 
(6) that on one of the parchment fly-leaves next the cover of the British 
Museum manuscript of this collection of pedigrees are written the words 
" be me Lawrence Dalton.' 

The folios cited are those originally marked in ink in the British 
museum volume as at present bound up. That volume commences with a 
collection of Somersetshire pedigrees of contemporary date but different 
authorship. It is only at folio 95 that the manuscript begins which is 
here reproduced so far as relates to Northumberland, Durham and York- 
shire. The Lancashire and Cheshire pedigrees in it will be found noted 
at the end of this section. 



158 VISITATIONS OF THE NORTH. 

THE PEDEGRE OF CUDBERDE MUSGRAVE OF 
NEWCASTELL, MERCHANTE, AND NOW 
MAYRE OF THE SAME TOWNE. 

Folio 95. 

WILLIAM MUSGRAVE of Ryall maryed [blank] dowghter 
to [blank] and had issue Roberte, William, Roberte sanz 
issue. 

WILLIAM, the ijde son of William, maryed Annes, 
dowghter to Alexander Preste of Coopon in Northomber- 
lande, and had issue John, Alexander, Cudberde, Edward 
and Thomas. 

JOHN, the furste son, maryed Elsabethe, dowghter to 
John a Fenwycke, and had issue William, Leonard 
Roberte and Thomas. 

ALEXANDER, the ijde son, maryed Elyzabethe, dowghter 
to Roberte Thowrlowe of Exam-shyre and had issue Myghell 
and Mathewe. 

CUDBERDE, iijde son and mayre of Newcastell, maryed 
Elyzabethe, dowghter to Gylberte Mydelton of Newcastell, 
and had issue by her. 

The sayd Cudberde maryed to his ijde wyff Grace, dowgh- 
ter to Cudberde Shaftow of Northumberland, and had issue 
John and Marke sanz issue. 

EDWARD, iiijth son, maryed Gunes, dowghter to [blank] 
and had issue William, Alexander, Cudberd, Edward and 
Thomas. 

THOMAS, vth son, maryed Elyanor, dowghter to Gylberte 
Mydelton of Newcastell, and had issue Marke, Cudberte and 
Roberte. 



Cuthbert Musgrave, who furnished the pedigree, was mayor of 
Newcastle from Michaelmas, 1560, to Michaelmas, 1561, Welford, 
Newcastle and Gateshead, vol. ii. pp. 353, 366. He had been apprenticed 
as a merchant adventurer in 1525 to Gilbert Middleton, whose daughter 
he married. His grandfather, William Musgrave, who heads the pedi- 
gree, is described in 16 Harl. Soc. (followed by Foster in Northumberland 
Visitations) as of Musgrave Royal, but this is a mistake. The right 
place is the township and chapelry of Ryal in the parish of Stamfordham 
in the county of Northumberland. In the fourteenth century Ryal 
passed to John fitz Robert de Musgrave by his marriage with Margaret, 
daughter and heiress of Robert de Ryhill, Plantagenet Harrison, 
History of Yorkshire, p. 166. In 1426 John Musgrave died seized of the 
manors of Ryal and of Heaton near Newcastle. nq. p.m. abstracted in 



PEDIGREES COLLECTED IX 1560-1561. 159 

Hodgson's Northumberland, part in, vol. ii. p. 268. On the death of 
Thomas Musgrave in 1482 both manors passed (subject to the life 
interests of Elizabeth Musgrave and Isabel Musgrave) to Thomas 
Musgrave's co-heiresses who married respectively William Fenwick and 
Robert Mitford, Cal. Inq. Henry vn, vol. i. p. 144. William Musgrave 
of Eiall in Northumberland, gentleman, is named as a trustee in two 
deeds dated in 1489 and 1490, Arch. Aeliana, 2 ser. vol. xxv. pp. 79, 81, 
and llobert Musgrave was a justice of the peace for Northumberland in 
1509, ibid. vol. iv. p. 122. For the family of Alexander Presten of 
Cowpen whose daughter married the second above-named William Mils- 
grave, see Xorthumberland County History, vol. ix. p. 342. 

No arms are given in the manuscript. The Carr MS. printed by 
Longstaffe in 41 Surtees Society publ. appendix, p. Ixvi. gives for Cuth- 
bert Musgrave the arms, azure, six annulets and in fess a mullet or.

There is no place called Spytton in Northumberland. The place 
intended is probably Spital at the mouth of the Tweed opposite Berwick 
and next Tweedmouth. Adam Brandling was a burgess of Berwick in 
1449 and John Brandling of Tweedmouth was pardoned in 1496. Surtees, 
Durham, vol. ii. p. 93. 

Neither Browne of Wark nor Browne, captain of the castle of Calais 
can be traced ; the name was not uncommon on the Border. The Browne

t George omitted in 16 Harl. Soc.

who was lord mayor of London in 1507 and died in his mayoralty. On 
leaves bound up at the end of the MS. Anstis C. 9 is the fragment of an 
armorial in a still earlier handwriting than that of the rest of the 
manuscript. They contain amongst others the following entry : 
" William browne : silver and gold per pale endented, upon all a chevron 
betwene iij scaloppis geules ; his wiffe geules, a chevron betwene iij luces 
ayrantz silver." Sir Anthony Browne, grandfather of Anthony Browne, 
first Viscount Montagu, was made Constable of the Castle of" Calais in 
1503, and died and was buried there in 1506. 

John Brandling, the father of Sir Robert, was sheriff of Newcastle 
in 1505-6 and mayor thereof in 1509-10 and thrice afterwards. He died 
in 1522. On a tomb to his memory formerly existing in St. Nicholas' 
church was engraved a shield bearing Brandling quartering Browne. 
Eichardson, Armorial Bearings in the Church of St. Nicholas, vol. i. 
p. 5, and plate i, fig. 1. 

For a biography of Sir Eobert Brandling, mayor and M.P. for 
Newcastle and governor of the Merchants Company there, knighted by 
Somerset after the battle of Musselborough, see Welford, Men of Mark, 
vol. i. p. 369. The same volume contains also biographies of later 
members of the family. His will dated 1 Jan., 1562-3 and proved at 
London 6 May, 1569, is printed in North Country Wills, part ii. p. 34. 
From the depositions taken in the Durham Consistory Court, Surtees 
Soc., vol. xxi. p. 121, it had been supposed prior to the publication 
of North Country Wills, part ii. that there had been no valid 
will. The testamentary document, the subject of the depositions, had 
evidently been rejected by the Durham Court, for on the 20 Sept., 1568, 
administration to the effects of the deceased was granted to his sisters 
Katherine Birkfilde, Margaret Tailor and Eleanor Foster out of the 
Prerogative Court of Canterbury. Glencross, Administrations in the 
Prerogative Court of Canterbury, 1559-1571, p. 89. That grant would 
be revoked when probate was granted of the will in 1569. 

The other Brandling wills are those of Ursula Brandling dated 
11 Aug., 1593, and of Henry Brandling, dated 10 July, 1578, and proved 
19 Jan., 1578-9. Durham Wills, part ii. p 234. The statement in the 
last paragraph of the above pedigree that Ursula Brandling who married 
John Carr was Henry Brandling's daughter is an error. She was 
Ursula Bucton who married first John Collingwood of Eslington, 
secondly John Carr of Hetton and Wark, and thirdly Henry Brandling. 
See ante pp. 31, 49. 

The way in which Sir Eobert Brandling, in right of his wife, Anne 
Place, obtained the Surtees lands in Durham and Northumberland, and 
the claims of the Place family to the Halnaby and Surtees arms are 
described in Surtees, Durham, vol. ii. p. 86, and vol. iii. p. 231. 

According to Harl MS. 1359, the crest as reproduced but with the 
flames " proper " instead " of gules and or " and with the dexter side 
blazoned " or " instead of " argent " was granted by Dalton on the 
4 Dec., 1561; the arms Brandling quartering Browne, with, on an 
inescutcheon of pretence, Halnaby quartering Surtees, were confirmed 
to him by the same grant, and the arms without the inescutcheon were 
by the same grant confirmed to his brothers Thomas Brandling and 
Henry Brandling. The later Brandlings dropped the Browne coat and 
substituted for that quartering the three flaming cressets on a field 
argent of the Hebburns of Hebburn in Northumberland, but there seems 
to have been no warrant for the change.

This pedigree althcmgh given in Dalton's visitation is here repro- 
duced to accompany the arms. Alenson, the youngest daughter is not 
named either in 16 Harl. Soc. or in Dalton's visitation of 1557-8. She 
was probably born between that time and 1560-1, the date of this 
visitation. See notes on p. 103. 

On the 10 Feb., 1575, Isabel Morleye, daughter of Christopher 
Morleye, and then the wife of Henry Anderson (Bertram Anderson's 
eldest son) had a grant of arms from Sir Gilbert Dethick, Garter.

William Dent who furnished the pedigree was sheriff of Newcastle 
and mayor in 1562. He had, in 1548, purchased considerable monastic 
possessions in Newcastle, Bourne, Newcastle, p. 142, and, in 1582, he and 
his son William Dent conveyed the priory of St. Michael de Wall Knoll 
(part of his purchase) to trustees for the corporation of that town, 
Brand, Newcastle, vol. i. p. 410. Besides the pedigrees indexed in 
Marshall, Genealogist's Ouide, there are notes on the family in Hodgson, 
Northumberland, part n, vol. i. p. 367. The following inq. p.m. though

relating to a later descendant had better be recorded here : by inquisi- 
tion taken 17 April, 1629, it was found that Henry Dent of Byker, 
esquire, died 4 Nov., 1628, and that Robert, his son and heir was aged 10. 

The abstract of this pedigree in 16 Harl. Soc. followed by Foster, 
Visitations of Northumberland makes George and Robert, who were the 
fifth and sixth sons of Roger Dent, to be the sons of William Dent, 
whilst Richard, Roger's seventh son is made to be the son of Robert. 

Numerous entries confirmatory of the above pedigree and giving 
earlier generations will be found in Feet of Fines, Northumberland and 
Newcastle, 1514-1602, extracted in a manuscript volume in the possession 
of the Northumberland County History Committee. 

The coat of arms and crest are described in the sketch in the manu-

CUDBERD now of Xewcastell, alderman and merchante of 
the same maryed Anne, dowghter to William Selbye, mer- 
chante of Newcastell, and had issue Cudbert and Barbara, 
nowe lyvynge. 



Cuthbert Ellison (1) who furnished the pedigree was sheriff of 
Newcastle in 1544-5 and mayor in 1549-50 and 1554-5. His will dated 24 
Feb., 1556-7, is printed in Durham Wills, part i. p. 148. Neither the date 
of his death nor that of the probate of his will is recorded. He was a 
witness in the Durham Consistory Court on the 24 Nov., 1561, and was 
still living on the 29 April, 1563, but on the 16 Aug., 1565, John Sotheron, 
who had been apprenticed to him in 1559, was turned over to his 
son-in-law Cuthbert Carr, who had married his daughter Barbara. 
Surtees Society publ. vol. 93, p. 90, and vol. 101, p. 207. The presump- 
tion therefore is that he died between 1563 and 1565. The inventory of 
the goods of his son Cuthbert Ellison (2) made immediately after the 



PEDIGREES COLLECTED IX 1560-1561. 177 

latter's death in 1580 is printed in Durham Wills, part i. p. 434. There 
are biographies of Cuthbert Ellison (1) and of eight of his descendants 
in Welford, Men of Mark 'twixt Tyne and Tweed, vol. 2. The elaborate 
pedigrees of this distinguished Newcastle family in Surtees, Durham, 
vol. ii. p. 73, and in Hodgson, Northumberland, part n, vol. iii. p. 346, 
start with Cuthbert Ellison (1) and the earlier descents are only found 
recorded in this visitation followed by 16 Harl. Soc. and Foster, 
Visitations of Northumberland. It will be noted that there is an 
omission in the pedigree of the parents of Cuthbert Ellison (1). The 
compiler of the Norcliffe MS., printed in 16 Harl. Soc. bridges this over 
by adding after the words " Cudberd a preste " the words "this 
Cuthbert is also an alderman and marchant of Newcastle." This explana- 
tion, which seems to be an assumption from the above text, is very 
doubtful. Cuthbert Ellison (1) the merchant was apprenticed in 1524, 
and thereafter led a mercantile life. Cuthbert Ellison the priest was 
ordained sub-deacon in 1556 on his title of Master of St. Thomas's 
Chapel. Sir Cuthbert Ellison, "clerk," was a legatee and supervisor 
under the will of Cuthbert Ellison (1). In that will Cuthbert Ellison (1) 
mentions his brother William and his brother William's son Edward. 
The editor suggests that there has been an omission in the manuscript 
and that Cuthbert Ellison (1) the merchant may have been a son of 
Edward (fifth son of Kobert) who is recorded to have had a son William. 

By inq. p.m. held at Stannerton 9 Jan., 1562-3 it was found that 
John Ellison died 20 Oct., 1556, possessed of a capital messuage and 
land in Hawkwell and that Katherine and Jennet were his daughters 
and co-heirs. 

No arms are given in the mamiscript. The Carr MS. in 41 Surtees 
Society putf., appendix, p. Ixv. gives for Cuthbert Ellison the arms, gules, 
between three gryphons' heads erased or, a chevron argent charged with 
a crescent sable.

No arms are given in the manuscript. On the 26 May, 1560, Dalton 
Norroy granted him the coat : " Azure, on a fess argent between three 
hawks closed of the last belled or, as many gilly flowers gules slipped 
and leaved vert," and the crest : " An arm embowed in armour per 
cross or and azure the gauntlet grasping a plume of five ostrich feathers 
argent." Harl. MS. 1359. The next year Flower Norroy granted him 
a modified and simpler coat, omitting the fess and gilly flowers, and 
accompanied it by the different crest : " A demi horse salient, holding a 
broken spear, all argent." Harl. MS. 1571. Dalton's more complicated 
coat and crest were, however, afterwards recognised by the Heralds 
College, for in 1579 Dethick Garter granted to Fabian Phillips of 
Yarpool in the county of Hereford, who claimed descent from Phillips of 
Yorkshire, the coat "and crest of Dalton's grant slightly differenced. 
Jewers, Grants of Arms, Genealogist, vol. 24, p. 62. According to 
Surtees and Raine citing Shakespeare's King John, act I, the hawks in 
both coats should be sparrows, as the word " Philip " means a tame 
sparrow.
