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
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.
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-
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
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-

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. +
It has been shown that the visitations were instituted, not
only for the purpose of recording pedigrees, but also, and

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-
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

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
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

his arms, or grant him new arms, on payment of the fees
prescribed. During- that time, extending 1 over, roughly, one
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
* The Resurrection of Heraldry, by Mr. Everard Green, Somerset
Herald, Nineteenth Century Magazine for June, 1896, p. 1033.
XX11 VISITATIONS OF THE NORTH.
' 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

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,

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
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

There is a list of printed visitations relating to the above counties,
as published by the Harleian Society, the Chetham Society, and other
agencies, in Dr. Marshall's Notes on the Heralds' Visitations, in the
Genealogist, new series, vols. 1, 2, and 3, and see Lea, Genealogical
Research in England, Scotland and Ireland (Boston and London, 1906).
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
3rd November, 1547, Henry Anderson, of Newcastle-
9th November, 1547, Matthew Meir, of the north.

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
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

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
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

logue as ' Miscellaneous collections relating to Norfolk,
Yorkshire, and other counties,' which fell at the auction to

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
2. Fifty-four pedigrees and headings of pedigrees in
narrative form, being Harvey's visitation of 1552.

by Flower, Norroy, in 1567.
4. Twenty-nine pedigrees and headings of pedigrees
in narrative form, being part of Dalton's visitation
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
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
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
date 15th November, 1553, mentions among the creation of heralds,

was William Colbarne.

XXX11 VISITATIONS OF THE NORTH.
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

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

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.

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

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
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
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

editor's extracted note is ' Extract from a volume of grants in the same

Northumberland, corrected by Sir Gilbert Dethick, Garter, King Edward
vi. time. Note that Harvey was Norroy when he made the pedigree
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
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
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
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
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.
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.

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
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
are written, in a shaky hand, the words, and apparent signa-
ture, ' be me Lawrence Dalton.'
The publication Collectanea Topographica et Heraldica,
in vol. iv. pp. 96-112, contains extracts from notes of
epitaphs formerly existing in the Church of St. Dunstan in
the West. Those extracts give details of the inscriptions to,
the arms borne by, and the dates of death and burial of,

latter' s wife. It is there stated (citing some church notes
taken in 1656-7) that, on a brass plate nailed to a pillar of

of the Hawe, Standish of Standish, Blundell of Blundell, Sharpies of

Bewsy, of whom the five first named have their pedigrees recorded in

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

indebted to Mr. W. H. Rylands, F.S.A., for the copy of the
British Museum drawing- of the effigy, which appears as the

full length, with hands raised in prayer, wearing his tabard

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 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

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

Yorkshire, visitations of Staffordshire (1569), Derbyshire ( P1569), Not-
tinghamshire (1569), and Cheshire (?1580). The descents are certified.
The volume H.19 seems to contain three visitations by Flower, namely
Yorkshire (1563) original, Staffordshire (1566), and Durham (1575) copy.
It has no tricks of arms.
INTENDED ORDER OF PUBLICATION.
Next after these visitations of 1575, by or for Flower,
comes the visitation of Yorkshire in 1584-5 by Glover,
which has been published by Foster, and then follow the
visitations of the next or seventeenth century for Yorkshire,
Northumberland, Cumberland, Westmorland, and Durham
respectively made in 1612-15 and 1664-5-6, by St. George
and Dugdale respectively, all of which have been pub-
lished.* It is the intention of the editor to fill in the gap
between the printed visitation of Tonge, made in 1530, and
the printed visitation of Glover, made in 1584-5, by printing,
in their chronological order, the intermediate visitations
and collections of pedigrees with arms as follows:

Any review of the details of the visitations to be con-

introduction to that part where the text of them will be
available for the illustration of what is said, but, in order
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.
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
Mention is made in the Noreliffe manuscript of ' my
grete boke of Petegres,'* thus evidencing the existence of

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,
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,
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
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
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
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.

and had yssue Edward, Raft'e, and Robert; Frances, a
EDWARD, son and heyr to Sir Rafte, maryed Elysabeth,
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.

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.

THE PEDEGRE OF SIR THOMAS GREY OF HORTON.
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.

1558, and that William Carr, his son and heir, was aged 9.

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.

a Hedged that his father, Sir Cutbet, bought the title of Richard Radclif,

no right, for he was never seased of any landes of Derwentwater, and

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.-
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.

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.

[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

[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.]

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
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.

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

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

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.,

There is a blank shield with a canton in blank in the manuscript and

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

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.

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

Tower by the House of Commons for an assault upon Sir Robert
Brandling, then M.P. for Newcastle, Welford, His tor y of Newcastle

at Newcastle of Dalton, Norroy, this may perhaps account for the trace
of scandal apparent in the pedigree. The will of Hector Widdrington,

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
last named Ralph Swinhoe and James, another son of Gilbert Swinhoe,
joined the rebellion in 1569, and are named in the subsequent Act of
Attainder, but both escaped execution. The shield of arms is left blank

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.
There are notices of the early members of the family in the notes to
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.

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.

Sir George Conyers who supplied the pedigree was appointed one of
the Council of North, 31 Dec., 1558. Cal. State Papers Foreign 1558-
1559, p. 55.
The wills, inquisitions and evidences for proving the Conyers pedi-
gree are all given more fully than can be attempted here in Surtees,
Durham, vol. iii, in the pedigree of Conyers of Sockburn on p. 247 and
in the pedigree of Conyers of Layton on p. 37 of that volume. Cuthbert
VISITATIONS OF THE NORTH.
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,

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

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.

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

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,

arms given in the shield reproduced are those of south country families
of that name; in particular they were the arms of Sir William Browne
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.

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
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.
