INTRODUCTION 

« The district covered by the two registers of Brindle and Samles- 

■ bury, now presented, forms roughly a triangle between the three 
ttowns of Preston, Blackburn, and Chorley; Brindle, lying almost 
I ^exactly in the centre of the area, and Santlesbury towards the north 
\^ on the high road from Preston to Blackburn, being about three miles 
^ from the former, and five miles from the latter. It was originally 
' intended to include the registers of Brownedge, which adjoins on 
\ the west, but it would have made the volume too bulky. The 
Brindle registers will be found to be amongst the most interesting 
of any yet published by the Society. Commencing in 1721-2, which is 
about 50 years earlier than the majority of Lancashire registers, 
there are not only a large number of baptismal entries for each 
^^^ year, but also Hsts of marriages and burials from the same early 
date, which is most unusual, and of great importance to the genealo- 
gist. There are also lists of conversions which is an uncommon 
^/"^z feature, and of confraternities and confirmations. The amount of 
family information given in the burials 1722-1766 when the registers 
were kept by Dom William Placid Naylor, O.S.B., is quite unique, 
and makes one regret that other missioners did not keep their 
records in the same interesting way. 

It is only right that a tribute should here be paid to the memory 

of the late Mr Joseph Gillow, to whom the Society owes such a debt 

of gratitude. Without an equal in the post-reformation history 

of Catholicity in this country, he was, of course, especially at home 

when tracing the fortunes of Catholic families in his ovm county of 

^ Lancashire, very few of the older families of any class not having 

(i^ been the subject of his most interesting notes in the various pub- 

\ lications of the Society, and particularly in Volumes IV (Burghley's 

Wap of Lancashire), VI (Recusants under Charles II), and the four 

volumes of Lancashire registers. 

Mr Gillow had promised to write the historical notes for both of 
the missions now printed, and to annotate the entries, but, owing to 
the unusual time taken in getting this volume through the press, 
he was barely able to complete Brindle before his last illness over- 
took him, and we are left to mourn one who has done yeoman service 
in the cause of Catholic research, and whose loss, even yet, is hardly 
realised. — R.I.P. 

After the death of Mr Gillow, Dom Joseph Edward Smith, 
O.S.B., of Ampleforth Abbey, who had already very kindly corrected 
all the proofs from the originals, again came to the rescue of the 
Society, undertaking at short notice to write the historical notes for 
Samlesbury, and the Society is very greatly indebted to him for the 
able way in which he has carried out this task. j p Sunu 

P.S. — Re the note on page 305, attention may be called to the 
Samlesbury register, in which, out of thirteen baptismal entries of 
the Hubberstey family (pp. 313-329) no less than fifteen different 
spellings are used. The same family appears in the Brindle registers, 
but Dom Placid Naylor always gives it as Huberche.

THE CATHOLIC REGISTERS OF ST. JOSEPH'S, BRINDLE, 
LANCASHIRE, 1721-2 to 1834. 

HISTORICAL NOTKS BY JOSEPH GILLOW. 

Brindle 

is a township and parish in the hundred of Leyland, co. Lancaster, 
seven miles south-west of Blackburn and six miles south-east of Preston. 
It lies to the south of Walton-le-Dale, and on every other side is bounded 
by the parish of Leyland, to which it originally belonged. It appears 
to have derived its name from the British Bryn, a spring, with the 
suffix hull, or hill. Through the marriage of Joan, daughter and heiress 
of Sir Peter de Bryn, of Brynhill, the manor of Brindle, as well as that 
of Bryn and Ashton-in-Makerfield, in the parish of Winwick, in the 
hundred of West Derby, passed to her husband, William Gerard, whose 
father and namesake died at Eaton Hall in 1352, and since that period 
the principal seat of the family, now represented by Lord Gerard, has 
been at Bryn, subsequently re-named Garswood. The Gerards retained 
the lordship of Brindle till the middle of the i8th century, when it 
passed by purchase into the family of Cavendish, and in 18 19 Lord 
George Cavendish, afterwards Earl of Burlington, became lord, and 
the Dukes of Devonshire have since held the presentation to the rectory. 
Descendants of the Gerards, usually spelling their name Gerrard, are 
very numerous in the locality. But before proceeding with the history 
of Brindle, a word must be said about the adjoining township of — 

Hoghton. 

Dominating Brindle, in the parish of Leyland, on the crest of the 
hill, stands Hoghton Tower, the lordly seat of the Hoghtons, whose 
present representative. Sir James de Hoghton, Bart., resides in the 
castle {Haydock Papers: C.R.S. iii). During the earlier portion of the 
reign of Elizabeth it was a centre of catholicity, and at the re-opening 
of the Tower after the extensive additions and alterations effected 
between 1563 and 1565 by its most distinguished lord, Thomas Hoghton, 
subsequently an exile for his ' Blessed Conscience,' his great friend, 
William Allen, later cardinal, Vivian Haydock, lord of Cottam and 
finally priest and exile, besides many other notable priests and 
confessors, were present at the celebrations in the domestic chapel, 
to which they were summoned by the ancient bell brought from the 
suppressed chantry of Assheton-under-Lyne, bearing the inscription 
Benedicta sit sancta Trinitas. It was a relic of the lord of Hoghton's 
maternal ancestors, his mother having been the co-heiress of Sir Thomas 
Assheton and wife of Sir Richard Hoghton. Within four years the 
government of Elizabeth, alarmed by such manifestations of the abso- 
lute refusal of Lancashire folk to embrace the new religion, summoned 
many of the leading gentry to appear before an ecclesiastical inquisition 
at Lathom, increased the severity of the penal laws, imprisoned notable 
adherents of the ancient faith, and necessitated the lord of Hoghton's 



Z REGISTERS OF BRINDLE 

flight into exile at Antwerp. He died at Liege in 1580, at the age of 
63, and was buried in the church of St. Gervais under a handsome monu- 
ment surmounted by the Hoghton arms, quartered with those of 
Assheton, with the appropriate motto of the family — Malgre le Tort. 
In the concluding words of the Hoghton ballad, entitled " The Blessed 
Conscience," attributed to the exile's personal friend, Richard Verstegan — 

" Hys life a myrour was to all, 
Hys death wythout offence ; 
Confessor, then, lett us hym call, 
O blessed conscyence ! " 

His wife was Anne, daughter of Sir Thomas Gerard, of Bryn, and 
thus he was inseparably connected with Brindle. She seems, however, 
to have predeceased him, and meanwhile the Tower was administered 
by the exile's faithful brother, to whom in the ballad he bids — 

" Fayr wel, my broder Richard trewe, 
Whom I dyd love soe wel" 

and under his administration holy sacrifice continued in the chapel. 

His daughter, Jane, became the wife of James Bradshaigh, of Haigh 
HaU, whose descendant, when a minor, was taken possession of by 
the lord-lieutenant of the county, and brought up a protestant, his 
representative at the present day being the Earl of Crawford and 
Balcarres, of Haigh Hall. 

Immediately after the exile's death, Hoghton Tower was visited at 
Eastertide, 1581, by Blessed Edmund Campion, the famous Jesuit 
martyr, who also stayed with Sir John Southworth at Samlesbury 
Hall and the Talbots at Salesbury Hall (Simpson, Edm. Campion, 
ed. 1867, p. 188), and this venerable priest preached in the ancient 
chapel attached to the castle with such wonderful fire and eloquence 
that many leading gentry of the county flocked to hear him. In 
the words of " A Songe of the Blessed martire ffather Campion of the 
Societie of Jesus " {John Brereley, Priest, MSS., apud me ; Pollen, Acts 
of English Martyrs, 29) — 

" The Tower had never man 
that stood in more defense. 
More farre from foile, more full of fayth 
or more sensere of sence." 

The excitement caused by the famous Jesuit's preaching did not 
escape the notice of the Queen's Council. Catholic prisoners were 
used with greater severity, and searches of greater strictness were made 
for those not apprehended. A few months later Campion was arrested, 
and the Earl of Derby apprehended Sir John Southworth, as well as 
the late exile's brother, Richard Hoghton, still in charge of the Tower, 
which was raided and a number of papers seized. The latter was 
examined relative to the great Jesuit's visit with Bro. Ralph Emerson, 
his attendant. Though Mr. Hoghton survived this imprisonment, he 
was pursued with relentless persecution to the end of his long life. 

After Thomas Hoghton's death, the estate passed to his next brother, 
Alexander, of Lea Hall, who died in 1581 before he took possession 
of the Tower, upon which his half-brother, Thomas Hoghton the 
younger, succeeded to the family inheritance. The latter was slain 
in 1589 at The Lea, by the Baron of Newton, frequently called Baron 
of Walton-le-Dale, after which his son. Sir Richard Hoghton, then 
a boy, was, at the instigation of the lord-lieutenant of the county, given 
in ward to Sir Gilbert Gerard, of Gerard's Bromley, co. Stafford, father 



REGISTERS OF BRTNDLE 3 

of the first baron of that title, and the representative of the protestant 
branch of the Gerards of Bryn. Sir Gilbert brought him up a protes- 
tant, and married him to his daughter Catharine. Thus, like other 
ancient catholic families, the Hoghtons were robbed of their Faith. Thus 
Hoghton Tower ceased to be the centre of catholicity in this locality, 
and the missioners had to seek shelter in the houses of such as clung 
to the Faith. From this period the descent of the mission at Brindle 
may be traced as follows: 

Brindh. 

" In the way from Brindle Church to Clajrton Green," says Dr. 
Kuerden, the Lancashire antiquary, " nere the brok cald Rodburn, 
standeth a fayr stone building, the inheritance of Mr .Thomas Walmsley." 
Richard Walmesley, of Sholley Hall in Clayton-le-Dale, Esq., married 
Ellen, daughter of William Gerard, Esq., of Radbum, and was buried 
at Blackburn, March 17, 1678-9, aged 80. His second surviving son, 
Thomas, eventually succeeded to Sholley. James Gerard was residing 
at Radburn in 1597, according to an ancient MS. pedigree of the Gerards 
of Haighton, and his grandson, Evan Gerard, gent., in 1640 " was 
the owner of a good estate in Brindle called The Holt, which was sold 
to the late Thomas Walmesley, Esq., of Ashton." About this time 
the Gerard family had acquired an estate in Haighton, where one branch 
of the family eventually settled, their residence being known as Gerard's 
Hall, and finally as Haighton House after a new mansion was erected 
by Evan Richard Gerard, Esq., in 1821 {C.R.S. vi, 98). Other members 
of the family, however, continued to hold property in Brindle, their 
residence being at St. Helen's Well. 

Previous to this, Oliver Gerard, of Brindle, had leased to William 
Chorley, of Chorley Hall, gent., property called Denham Bank, and 
this is referred to in William Chorley 's will bearing date Dec. 13, 1585 
{Chetham Society li. Lane. Wills ii, 195). This branch of the Gerards 
appears in the parish registers {L.P.R.S. ii) as residing at Denham Hall 
between 1592 and 1657, and it was probably here that the venerable 
martyr, Edmund Arrowsmith alias Rigby and Bradshaw, chiefly 
resided during some years of his missionary career. He had been 
christened Bryan, but used his confirmation name of Edmund, which 
was that of his uncle, a distinguished professor at Douay College, where 
the future martyr was ordained in 161 2, and came to the mission in 
his native county in the following year. He was the son of Robert 
Arrowsmith, of Haydock, and his wife Margery, daughter of Nicholas 
Gerard, younger brother of Sir Thomas Gerard, of Bryn, Knt. About 
1622 he was apprehended and brought before Dr. Bridgeman, bishop 
of Chester, with whom he had a controversy before being committed 
to Lancaster Castle. Thence he was released about the time of the 
negotiations for a marriage between Prince Charles and a Spanish 
princess. Shortly afterwards he joined the Society of Jesus, as he 
had long desired, making his novitiate on the mission, but spending 
two or three months in Essex before his profession under the name of 
Rigby in 1624. From that date he continued to serve the mission at 
Brindle and neighbourhood till his apprehension before the summer 
of 1628. He was then arraigned at Lancaster, condemned to death 
for being a priest, and martyred August 28, 1628, aged 43 {True and 
Exact Relation ; Knaresborough MS., Account of his Martyrdom, pp. 177 
seq.; Challoner, Memoirs). The martyr's right hand was secured 
by the Gerards of Bryn, and to this day is held in great veneration. 
An illustration of it, with other relics of Fr. Arrowsmith, will be found 
in Dom Bede Camm's fascinating " Forgotten Shrines." 



4 REGISTERS OF BRINDI.E 

The Rev. Thomas Abbot who succeeded his uncle, Dr. Thomas 
Burgess, subsequently bishop of Clifton, to Monmouth in 1851, com- 
municated to the present writer certain conceived family traditions 
respecting the mission at Brindle which are quite irreconcilable with 
documentary evidence. For instance, the parish registers of Burnley, 
Walton, and Brindle show that the family of Burgess was not settled 
in those places at the time related. The origin of the family will be 
found C.R.S. xiii, 14. These stories eventually found a misplacement 
i n Fr. Camm's otherwise charming work. 

St. Helen's Well. 
Whilst showing that Denham Hall, a large stone edifice with gables, 
originally erected by Sir Henry Slater, and later the property of the Earl 
of Burlington, and used as a farm-house, was not the manor-house of 
Brindle as it had been termed, Kuerden states : " Over against Swansey 
House, a little towards the hill, standeth an ancient fabric, once the 
manor-house of Brindle, where hath been a chappel belonging to the 
same, and a little above it a spring of very clear water, rushing straight 
upward into the midst of a fayr fountain, walled square about in stone 
and flagged in the bottom, very transparent to be seen, and a strong 
stream issuing out of the same. This fountain is called St. Ellen's 
Well, to which place the vulgar neighbouring people of the Red Letter 
[catholics] do much resort with pretended devotion on each year, 
upon St. Ellin's day [Aug. 18]." Mr. Henry Taylor, in his "Ancient 
Crosses and Holy Wells of Lancashire," in 1906, gives some diagrams 
of the well, along with an interesting account, in which he says: "I 
could not find the chapel, but some of the stones in a dilapidated house 
close by may have formed a portion of such an edifice." This was the 
residence of the Gerards, and so continued till the early part of the 
1 8th century. According to the Brindle parish registers, William 
Gerard, of the Well, married Elizabeth Cowpe, of Cuerden, Sept. 14, 
1619; Oliver Gerard, of the Well, was buried AprU 17, 1664, James 
Gerard, of St. Ellen's Well, May 15, 1675, and Alice Gerard, of the Well, 
Feb. 8, 1679, the wills of the two last being proved at Chester in the 
respective years. Another Alice Gerard, widow, was buried June i, 
1688, as well as another James, of the Well, May ii, 1696, and the 
latter's son and successor was living at St. Helen's Well, and registered 
his name at the Preston Guild of 1702. Elizabeth Gerard, of the Well, 
was buried March 27, 1713. There was a chapel in the house, and if 
the priest did not generally reside at St. Helen's Well, it was at one 
time the principal place where Mass was said in the district. 

Brindle Mission, S.J. 
The name of Fr. Arrowsmith's successor has not been ascertained, 
but Fr. John Penketh alias Birkett, S.J., was here in 1669, as appears 
by the Visitation Presentments at Chester Diocesan Registry. This holy 
confessor of the Faith was the thirteenth child of Richard Penketh, of 
Penketh Hall, co. Lancaster, and of Bridge TrafEord, co. Chester, 
gent. He was born in 1630, and was ordained priest at the English 
College at Rome, Dec. 17, 1656, but entered the Society in 1663, and 
came to the mission in his native county in 1666. He is said to have 
accepted a nominal chaplaincy from Mr. Scarisbrick, at Scarisbrick 
Hall, under the stipulation that he might be allowed to do missionary 
work at Brindle and perhaps Bedford. At one of these places he was 
arrested in Jan. 1678-9, during the Oates Plot ferment, but being very 
seriously ill at the time, was not committed to Lancaster Castle till the 



REGISTERS OF BRINDLE 5 

following month {C.R.S. iv, 433). There he was arraigned and con- 
demned to death, but reprieved in 1679. He was retained in prison, 
however, till his release upon the accession of James II in 1685. 

In the notice of " Fr. John Birkett, confessor in Lancaster Castle," 
C.R.S. iv, 431-440, an effort was made to unravel the mystery caused by 
two priests using the name of Birkett, of whom one died a prisoner in 
Lancaster Castle and was buried at the parish church as " Mr. Birkett, 
a prisoner," Dec. 25, 1680. In " Memoirs of Missionary Priests " (vol. 
ii, 446), edited anonymously by Bishop Richard Challoner from the 
Rev. John Knaresborough's MS., but subsequently attributed to the 
Bishop as his own work, it is stated that the name of the confessor 
was Richard Berket, a secular priest, "but of what college I have 
not found," who was tried at Lancaster at the same time with Fr. John 
Penketh, S.J., and another secular priest of Douay College called 
Richard Fletcher alias Barton. The Assize Rolls in the P.R.O. have 
recently been searched,* and the Pleas of the Crown at Lancaster Castle, 
on Saturday, 23 Aug., 31 Chas. II, 1679 (No. 55), before Sir William 
Dolben, Knt., justice, and Sir Thomas Raymond, Knt., and others, re- 
veal that John Penketh was a priest and had been in the parish of Leigh, 
and that the jurors found him guilty, that he with others was com- 
mitted, and that John Penketh and Richard Barton, of Melling, also a 
priest, were condemned to death, but that afterwards for certain causes 
then specially moving, the justices respited execution against Penketh and 
Barton, and they were remitted to the King's gaol at Lancaster Castle. 
These two were the only priests tried on this occasion, and the name 
Birket does not appear. Richard Fletcher alias Barton, of the ancient 
family of Fletcher of Denton's Green in Windle, came from Douay and 
eventually became chaplain to Robert Molyneux, Esq., of The Wood in 
Melling, where he was arrested, and to which after his release he returned 
and remained till his death in 1700 when he was buried in the ancient 
catholic burial-ground at Harkirk (Gibson, Crosby Records, pp. 81, 85). 
This disposes of Knaresborough's statement that three priests were 
tried and condemned, and also shows that Richard Barton must not be 
confused with "Mr. Birkett " who died a prisoner in 1680, but it leaves 
the identity of the last a mystery. 

After his release in 1685 Fr. John Penketh returned to live with 
Richard Shuttleworth, Esq., at Bedford Leigh [C.R.S. iv, 437), and 
died there Aug. i, 1701, aged 71. By a proposed will he had left a 
substantial sum as well as a freehold house and grounds in Brindle for the 
foundation of a mission on a firmer basis, to be served by the Jesuits 
in Brindle, Walton-le-dale, Hoghton Lordship, and SamJesbury, "in 
circuit round abouts." The house in which he lived, on which he had 
a lease for the life of Henry Gerard, of Bamfurlong Hall, Esq., descended 
from Henry Gerard, of Brindle, was bequeathed for the same purpose, 
and both this and the other house and grounds were held in trust by 
James Gerard, of Wheelton, who died in 1678, and subsequently by 
his widow Bridget and others. His executor was Fr. Henry Scarisbrick 
alias Neville, S.J., of Scarisbrick Hall. After Fr. Birkett's release the 
funds as in his draft will were used by Fr. Thomas Eccleston alias 
Holland, S.J., to build a house and chapel during the lull of persecu- 
tion ensuing upon the accession of James II to the throne. Fr. 
Eccleston was the son of Thomas Eccleston, of Eccleston Hall, Esq. , 
by Jane, daughter of Sir Cuthbert Clifton, of Westby Hall. He came

Sherwood.

to Lancashire in 1677, and one Bennet, presumably the trustee under 
Fr. Birkett's settlement, who was seized in fee of a chapel called Brindle 
chapel and two messuages and 20 acres of land in Brindle, did enfeoff 
Fr. Holland " in trust and to the intent that Mass and prayers according 
to the usuage of the Church of Rome should be said daily in the said 
chappel " {Forfeited Estates Papers, P.R.O., 107 S). According to other 
information given to the Commissioners in 171 8, this chapel was buUt 
towards the end of the reign of James II in 1688. Fr. Eccleston alias 
Holland remained in charge till his death, Nov. 25, 1698, aged 55. 

Fr. John Richardson, S.J., succeeded and had his chapel confiscated 
after the rising of 1715, but removed to some other house in the neigh- 
bourhood, and continued to serve the mission till his death, Sept. 27, 
1728, aged 66. The confiscated property in 1734 was converted into 
the Brindle Workhouse. After Fr. Richardson's death the mission 
was removed in 1729 to Wheelton, where a chapel was opened in the 
garret of the house of Matthew Talbot, at Slate Delph, convicted of 
recusancy Apr. 30, 1717, and Fr. George Palmer, S.J., from Eccleston 
Hall, took charge. He was still there in 1741, but shortly afterwards 
removed to Chorley, and was succeeded by Fr. Cornelius Morphy, S.J., 
and so the mission continued at Slate Delph till its removal to South 
Hill, Chorley, in 1790. Its subsequent history to the present time will 
be found under the notice of Fr. John Birkett, C.R.S. iv, 431-440. 

The old bell at Brindle Chapel, after remaining buried for many 
years, was dug up and sold to Eccleston Chapel, and the proceeds 
handed over for the benefit of the house and chapel at Slate Delph. 
The old altar-rails were also removed to the same chapel. 

Brindle Benedictine Mission. 
Meanwhile, the widow, Alice Gerard, of St. Helen's Well, died and 
was buried at Brindle, Feb. 8, 1679. Previous to her death, probably 
about 1677, she gave the site and built upon it a new chapel and house 
in Gregson Lane, known as Newhouse. Among the Forfeited Estates 
Papers in the P.R.O. are several depositions [M 10) made before the 
Commissioners in reference to this chapel. " George Hilton, of Brindle, 
CO. Lancaster, swornethis 18 July, 1718, saith he hath known Newhouse 
ever since it was built by Alice Gerard, viz. about forty years ago: 
that one Green lived there about ten years & died about thirteen 
years ago, & this deponent did frequently hear the said Green say 
Mass there, after whose death Mr. Hutchinson, a Roman priest, suc- 
ceeded him, & used to ofiiciate there untill he died, which is about 
a year since, when Hudlestone succeeded him, & now usually resides 
there: that there are about 12 acres of ground belonging to the said 
house." And " William Hilton, of the same, sworne, saith he hath 
known Newhouse about forty years: that the said Green lived there 
about ten years, & used to ofl&ciate there as a Romish priest untUl 
he died & was succeeded by Mr. Hutchinson, a Priest, who used in 
like manner to ofiiciate there untill he died, & then Mr. Hudleston, 
a priest, succeeded him, & doth now or of late in like manner officiate 
there." Then " William Turnor, of the same, sworne, saith he hath 
known Newhouse about twenty years, & that said Green then lived 
there (but refusing to go on was sent to Lancaster goal) ." Yet the 
words in brackets being subsequently erased he goes on — " and ofiiciated 
as a Romish priest, & after him came Hutchinson, & officiated in 
like manner, & after him came Hudlestone, or one that went by 
that name, & officiated in like manner." Another witness — " Thomas 
Oram, of the same, sworne, saith he hath known Newhouse about 



REGISTERS OF BRINDLE 7 

twelve years, & that then said Green lived there, & after his death 
Hutchinson lived there, & after his death Mr. Hudlestone came there, 
but did never see either of them officiate as priests." P 134 is " An 
account of Estates granted to superstitious uses in & about Preston, 
CO. Lancaster," reported by the vicar of that town, Samuel Peploe, 
subsequently rewarded for his anti-papist activity at this period by 
a bishopric, number 11 of which reads — "Newhouse & grounds be- 
longing to it in Brindle is mostly let in parcels. One Hutchinson, a 
Popish priest, has lived on it some time, who succeeded Mr. Green, a 
priest, who died there. Mr. Hutchinson wiU be proved to be a priest 
by Mr. Hitchmough." The last was the infamous pervert priest and 
informer, Richard Hitchmough. In MS. S 95 is — " John Thornton of 
Croston's Information as to Popish Priests," and under Brindle appears — 
" Hutchinson, a priest resident in Brindle, or was so not so long since." 
John Thornton, of Croston, gent., and Edward Woodcock, of Euxton, 
gent., were high constables for Leyland Hundred, and on Oct. 13, 1716, 
in L 2 had reported under Brindle " Mr. Hutchinson, a reputed Pop. 
Priest." 

The record of the priests in charge of the mission, so far as ascer- 
tained, is as follows : — 

Dom Francis Leander Green, O.S.B., a native of Monmouthshire, 
was professed at Lambspring Apr. 11, 1660, was sent to the mission 
in the North Province, and was stationed about 1695 at Brindle, where 
he is stated to have died Nov. 8, but according to the registers was 
buried at the parish church of Brindle Oct. 31, 1704 {L.P.R.S. ii, 171). 

Dom Joseph Wilfrid Hutchinson, O.S.B., born in Northumberland, 
was professed at Lambspring Nov. 7, 1679, came to the mission in 
the North Province in 1697, succeeded Fr. Green in 1704, and died 
at Brindle Aug. 24, 171 7. In this year the protestant rector of 
Brindle estimated the catholics in his parish at 170 {Lane. Cath., p. 8). 
Of course at this period the catholic mission included several other 
parishes. He was succeeded by — 

Dom William Denis Huddleston, O.S.B., second son of Henry Hud- 
dleston, of Sawston Hall, co. Cambridge, a lieut.-colonel in the service 
of Charles I, and his wife Mary, daughter of William Havers, of Thelton 
Hall, CO. Norfolk, Esq. (Burke, Commoners, ii, 585). He was professed 
April 24, 1 701, at the English Abbey of SS. Adrian and Denis at Lamb- 
spring (Weldon, Chron. Notes), and, according to his own statement 
in his ' Renunciation ' printed at the end of his sermon in 1729, became 
" Master and Director of Studies, Secretary of the English Benedictine 
Order, Deputy of the General, and Deputy of the Lord Abbot of Lamb- 
spring to the General Chapter. Twice appointed representative to 
the Court of Rome, Deputy sent to the Pope's Nuncio in Flanders 
by the Provincial and Province of Canterbury, and lately Confessor- 
elect of Sion House." He came to Brindle in 171 7, and remained in 
charge of Newhouse mission till 1721, after which he is lost to sight 
until he apostatized and publicly read his ' Renunciation ' of the 
Catholic Religion, which was published under the title of " A Recanta- 
tion Sermon, Preached before the Right Reverend Father in God, 
Samuel [Peploe, the former vicar of Preston], Lord Bishop of Chester, 
at the Collegiate Church in Manchester, Sept. 21, anno dom. 1729. By 
William Hudleston, lately a Benedictin Missionary, &c., of the Church 
of Rome. Pubhshed at the Desire of His Lordship." London, printed 
for J. Hodges in Manchester, 1729, 8vo, pp. 36. He was then made 
rector of Navenden, in Kent. 



8 REGISTERS OF BRINDLE 

Dom William Placid Naylor, O.S.B., took charge of the mission in 
1721 or 1722. He was a son of Thomas Naylor, at that time a farmer 
in Scarisbrick, and later under the Gerards in Ashton. He was pro- 
fessed at St. Laurence's at Dieulward in 1711, came to the mission in 
the North Province, and was appointed to Brindle as stated. Bishop 
Williams made his Visitation in this district in Oct., 1728, and confirmed 
402 persons from Lower HaU in Samlesbury, Brindle, and Little Mosna 
in Walton-le-dale, Fr. GoUingridge, O.S.B., Dom Nailer, O.S.B., and 
Dom Champney, O.S.B., being the respective priests {Merry England, 
No. 56, p. 483). About this time, in 1726, he had been enabled with 
the aid of various benefactions to acquire Stanfield House and the 
grounds in which it stood. It was purchased for him by James Wood- 
cock and others, and was held by them in trust until it was formally 
transferred to him in 1731. This property, with five acres of land, 
he made over to the mission in 1735, and on it he erected a new chapel, 
near the site of the old one. Other episcopal visitations in the district 
were made during his term in 1749, 1755, 1760, and 1766 (Abram, 
Hist, of Blackburn, 353 seq.). He held many ofiices in the Benedictine 
Congregation — Definitor of the Province in 1733, Definitor of the 
Regimen, 1737, Provincial of York, 1741-66; filled the dignities of 
Prior of Norwich, 1741, Durham, 1745, and Canterbury, 1769, and 
became President-General, 1766, till his death at Dieulward Nov. 8, 
1772, at an advanced age. He remained nominally in charge of Brindle 
till July 16, 1769, two years before that date having been succeeded by — 

Dom Joseph Laurence Hadley, O.S.B., son of John Hadley and his 
wife, Mary Clements, of London, where he was born in 1739. He was 
professed at St. Gregory's, Douay, Mar. 25, 1757, and sent to the mission 
in the North Province to Biddleston, the seat of the Selbys, in 1764, 
whence he was transferred to Brindle in 1767, in which year his con- 
gregation in the protestant Bishop of Chester's return is put down at 
364 {Lane. Cath., 8). In 1774 Bishop William Walton made his 
Visitation of the district, and confirmed 216 of the Brindle and Slate 
Delph congregations ; and on Sept. 30, 1784, Bishop Matthew Gibson 
confirmed 168 of Fr. Hadley 's congregation, which was estimated at 
591 communicants. The Rev. John Chadwick, vicar-general in Lanca- 
shire for the bishop, had informed his lordship in a letter dated Weld 
Bank, Feb. 3, 1783, that Mr. Hadley 's congregation at Brindle num- 
bered 600 communicants {Ushaw Collections, MSS., ii, 491). Early 
in 1786 Mr. Hadley commenced to build adjoining the park of Brindle 
Lodge, the seat of the Heatleys, a new chapel and house in Gregson 
Lane, dedicated to St. Joseph, which was opened in that year. He 
had likewise established a Sunday school {Records of the Catholic Brethren, 
or First Catholic Charitable Society, Preston). The building is of stone, 
devoid of architectural elaboration, but good and substantial. Over 
the door, approached by two steps, k a tablet inscribed with the date 
of the erection of the chapel. Mr. Hadley continued to serve Brindle 
till 1802, when he retired in ill -health to Netherton, co. Lancaster; 
thence in 1803 he went to Sarnesfield, co. Hereford, the seat of the 
Monington family, and finally to Liverpool, where he died May 30, 1805, 
aged 65. 

In 1792 Dom John Placid Bennet, a native of Lancashire, assisted 
Mr. Hadley for a short time before going to Hindley in that year. 
Another assistant during his failing health was Dom Henry Lawson, 
a native of York, in 1763, and third son of John Lawson, Esq., and 
his wife Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Selby, of Biddleston Hall, co. 
Northumberland, Esq. He came from Bath in 1800, and remained 



REGISTERS OF BRTNDLE 9 

here till 1802, when he went to Morpeth. Upon Mr. Hadley's final 
retirement in 1802, his appointed successor was — 

Dom James Alexius Pope, O.S.B., born in Lancashire in 1755, was 
professed at Dieulward in 1776, sent to the North Province to Beaufront, 
CO. Northumberland, the seat of the Erringtons, 1788-93, transferred 
to Hesleyside, in the same county, the seat of the Charltons, 1793-7, 
so to St. Mary's, Liverpool, 1797-1802, Lawkland, co. York, 1802, and, 
finally, in the same year was given the charge of Brindle. In 1829 
an assistant was assigned to him, who became his successor in 1830, 
when Mr. Pope withdrew to Southport, and there lived in retirement 
till his death Feb. 19, 1837, aged 81. 

Dom Joseph Bede Smith, O.S.B., born June 9, 1801, was son of 
Robert Smith, of Drax Abbey, yeoman, and his wife Ann, daughter 
of John Howe, of Everingham, co. York, game-keeper. Two of his 
uncles, younger sons of William Smith, of Drax Abbey Farm, and his 
wife Dorothy, daughter of Thomas Owst, of Halsham, and Dorothy 
his wife, became Dominicans at Bornhem, the second son, Fr. John 
Bernard Smith, O.P., dying at Bornhem College Mar. 16, 1804, aged 55, 
and the other and the fifth son, being Fr. Joseph Smith, O.P., dying 
at Stourton Lodge, co. York, the seat of Lord Stourton, Dec. 21, 1804 
(Gillow, Miscellaneous Yorkshire Catholic Pedigrees, MS., xvii, 97 seq.). 
Joseph Smith was educated at St. Lawrence's College, Ampleforth, 
where he was professed, under the name of Bede, Dec. 23, 18 19, and 
was ordained priest July 11, 1825. His first mission was at St. Mary's, 
Liverpool, from 1827 to 1829, whence he came to Brindle as assistant 
to Mr. Pope, and from 1830 till his death Fr. Bede retained charge of 
the mission, dying here Jan. 29, 1874, aged 72. 

Mr. Anthony Hewitson, in " Our Country Churches and Chapels," 
1872, p. 155, described him as " one of the most genial, as he has been 
one of the most industrious priests." Short in stature, and rather 
inclined to be stout, he had "a sharp merry eye," was quick-witted, 
beamed with good humour, and believed in " old friends, old times, 
old manners, old books, and old wine," and the present writer may 
add from his own knowledge was fond of spending a musical evening 
at a friend's house. 

In 1 83 1 Mr. Joseph Knight, of Chelsea (Gillow, Biog. Diet, iv, 74), 
erected the schools, about two hundred yards from the chapel, com- 
memoratory of his being a native of Brindle. In 1832 Capt. William 
Heatley, of Brindle Lodge, generously paid for the enlargement of 
the chapel, and a " Lady Chapel " was formed on the left-hand side 
of the sanctuary. A further enlargement took place in 1843, which 
provided a total accommodation for about 800 persons {Biog. Diet, iii, 
252-6; Kelly, Cath. Missions, 100). 

After the death of Squire Heatley in 1840, Mr. Thomas Eastwood, 
the husband of his niece Catherine, to whom he had bequeathed Brindle 
Lodge, was most dissatisfied with the terms of the old squire's will, 
and at once instituted proceedings of various kinds. The bulk of the 
estate, both real and personal, had been left to the old squire's spiritual 
adviser, the Rev. Thomas Sherburne vere Irving, of the Willows, Kirk- 
ham, whose compromise in 1841 was followed by further litigation 
and much controversy, in which Bishop Brown, Francis Middelton, 
Esq., of the Stockeld Hall family, the Rev. Francis Trappes, who acted 
as the latter's theologian, 194 members of the Brindle congregation, 
and many others took part. Amongst numerous publications was a 
broad sheet containing a poetical effusion entitled " The Brindle 
Lament." In June, 1844, a petition was presented to the House of 



10 REGISTERS OF BRINDLE 

Commons signed by a number of Mr. Eastwood's adherents in the 
Brindle congregation, praying the House to afEord that protection 
formerly given to patrons of catholic chapels, and that the same should 
be vested in laymen, and not the Pope's vicar. Mr, Eastwood's next 
move was to defy Fr. Bede Smith by refusing to pay pew-rent, Mr. 
Heatley having occupied a tribune in the chapel to which Mr. Eastwood 
laid claim, and six members of the congregation were committed to 
the Preston House of Correction on refusing to pay the penalties of 
conviction for assault, at the Chorley Petty Sessions, Mar. 24, 1846, 
during a disturbance made by Mr. Eastwood. An action against the 
magistrates for false imprisonment was commenced in the follow- 
ing August, but withdrawn on some technical grounds. After this 
Mr. Eastwood became a protestant, and turned the domestic oratory 
at Brindle Lodge into a bathroom and lavatory, and removed from 
college his two sons who were studying for the priesthood. It was 
not long before he quarrelled with the Anglican rector of Brindle, but 
was buried as a protestant in Walton churchyard [Haydock Papers 
MSS.; Biog. Diet. Engl. Caths. iii, 254-5). In July, 1867, the efiects 
at Brindle Lodge, including the Heatley library, were put up to auction 
by his widow, and the estate privately sold to Mr. Whitehead, since 
which time its catholic associations have ceased. 

Shortly before 1857, Fr. Bede established the existing mission at 
Walton-le-Dale. From 1844-8 he had an assistant, Dom Richard 
Clement Croft, O.S.B. (Birt, Obit Book, 158), but otherwise Fr. Bede con- 
tinued to serve Brindle alone until his death. He was succeeded by — 

Dom John Ildephonsus Brown, O.S.B., ordained at Ampleforth in 
1862, prior of Downside, 1868 to 1870, came to Brindle in 1874 to 1883, 
when he returned to Ampleforth Abbey, and, finally, was transferred 
to Parbold, Lancashire, where he died Feb. 10, 1917. Meanwhile, 
the mission was supplied by Dom Joseph Murphy, O.S.B. , 1883, till 
the appointment of — 

Dom Michael Wilfrid Brown, O.S.B. (elder brother of Dom John 
Ildephonsus Brown), born at Wigan July 6, 1832, educated at Ample- 
forth and ordained priest Oct. 3, 1858; prefect of studies, 1858-66; 
sub-prior, 1866-74; sent on the mission to St. Anne's, Liverpool, 1874; 
St. Peter's, Liverpool, 1874-7; Easingwold, 1877-g; Birtley, 1879-80; 
St. Anne's, Liverpool, again, 1880-4; ^■nd came to Brindle in 1884 till 
death here May 2, 1905, aged 72. In 1896 he enlarged the Lady Chapel 
and erected a new altar. He was succeeded by — 

Dom Basil Feeny, O.S.B., 1906 to date, assisted by Dom Joseph 
Cuthbert Almond, O.S.B., from 1914 to date. The latter is the author 
of the interesting article in " The Ampleforth Journal " for Jan., 1915, 
entitled " Religious Parsimony at Brindle." J.G.

:<c Samlesbury, a township-chapelry in Blackburn parish, 
f This name is found in various forms — Paldwin, Paulden, Palding, 
Pauden, Paudin, Poadeing, and Polding. Administration to the will of Wm. 
Paudlin, of Brindle, was granted in 1708, and the name appears in the Brindle 
registers somewhat earher, but may be traced to Upper Darwen, parish of 
Blackburn, where Henry Palding, yeo., died in 1751. He had a son WiUiam, 
bom in 1699, and another son John in 1703. Archbishop John Bade Polding, 
O.S.B., who died in 1877, was of this family, which in the middle of last cen- 
tury acquired extensive estates within the radius of the old Brindle mission. 
They owned a cotton mill in Livesey, and were also com merchants in Black- 
bum. 

J WiUiam Heatley, subsequently O.S.B., was the second son of Hugh 
Heatley, of Samlesbury, yeoman, a CathoUc non -juror in 171 7, who registered 
leasehold estates in Samlesbury inherited from his father and grandfather, 
James and Hugh Heatley, yeomen. His grandmother, AUce Heatley, then a 
widow, was a recusant convict in 171 7, as well as his uncle, Peter Heatley, of 
Whittle-le-Woods, yeoman, whose son, Fr. James Heatley, S.J., bom Apr. 2, 
1715, died chaplain to the Tempests at Broughton Hall, co. York, May 11, 
1782, aged 67. Through the instrumentaUty of Dom Wm. Placid Naylor, 
O.S.B., Wilham Heatley was sent to Lambspring, where he was professed 
under the name of Maurus in 1740, and ordained in 1746. He was at St. 
Gregory's, Douai, in 1750, and came to the mission in the South Province and 
was placed at Cheame, Surrey. In 1757 he became Definitor of the Province, 
remaining at Cheame till he was elected Abbot of Lambspring in 1762, which 
office he retained till his death there, Aug. 15, 1802, aged 79. His nephew, 
Dom Hugh Jerome Heatley, O.S.B., eldest son of James Heatley, of Samles- 
bury, was bom in 1757 at Preston, where his father was engaged in business, 
was professed at Lambspring in 1777, and was sent to Bath in 1787, where he 
died April 28, 1792, aged 35. Ariother relative, Dom John Lewis Heatley, 
O.S.B., born at Samlesbury in 1752, died at Lambspring May 9, 1805.

1789. The Gregsons of Balderston derived from the family of Normanton of 
Normanton, co. York, which returned a pedigree of twenty generations at th« 
Visitation of 1563 (Harl. Soc. xvi, 147). Gregory Normanton married a Lanca- 
shire lady, as did his son who for lirevity was called Grygson, and from that 
period the family adopted that name and settled at Balderston, where they held 
an estate and intermarried with the Ashtons, Hoghtons, Faringtons, South- 
worths, and other leading families. They gradually became reduced, and 
latterly held a small estate at Balderston called Green House, which passed 
with an heiress to the Gradwells, and through them in like manner to Richard 
Carr, Esq., of Preston, and is now occupied and held by his grsmdchildren.

Thomas Burgess, bom Oct. 1, 1791, was professed O.S.B. at Ampleforth under 
the name of Lawrence, Oct. 13, 1807, and was elected prior in July, 1818, but 
resigned his office and became secularized in 1830, withdrew to the college at 
Prior Park, Bath, and subsequently served Cannington, Portland chapel, 
Bath, and finally Monmouth till his consecration as the first bishop of Clifton, 
July 27, 1851. He died at Westbury-on-Trym Nov. 27, 1854, aged 63. His 
sister Ann was mother of the Rev. Thomas Abbot, who went to Ampleforth 
to become a Benedictine, but left at the time of the exodus from Ample- 
forth in 1830, followed Prior Burgess to Prior Park, and in 1846, after ordina- 
tion, was given charge of the mission at Coedrangred, co. Monmouth, which 
his uncle, the Rev. Thomas Burgess, had commenced in 1845. Mr. Abbot 
erected a chapel in 1847, but succeeded his uncle to Monmouth after his ele- 
vation to the see of Chfton, and remained there till his retirement to Lancaster 
in 1894, where he died Feb. 18, 1904.

to his wife Elizabeth's father, Richard Kellet, of Cuerdale (buried at Walton 
Jan. 25, 1704-5). Three of his sons and four daughters were baptized at Walton

jf: Richard Gerard, born May 19, 1701, was a younger son of Evan Gerard, 
of Alston and Haighton, gent, (son of John Gerard, of Brindle, gent.), whose 
marriage covenant with his wife Ann was dated Feb. 8, 1696. He went to 
London and entered business as a draper, his residence being in the parish of 
St. Martin's-in-the-Fields. Unfortunately the printed marriage registers at 
Brindle parish church {L.P.R.S. vol. xi) are not brought down to this date, 
and hence the surname of Richard's wife Helen has not been ascertained. 
She may have been a Heatley, daughter or niece of Peter Heatley, one of the 
witnesses to the marriage, of Whittle-in-the- Woods, a CathoUc non-juror in 
1717, and a younger brother of Hugh Heatley, grandfather of William Heatley, 
Esq., of Brindle Lodge. " Dominus Joannes Gerard de Haighton " was 
Richard Gerard's eldest brother, who died unmarried and was buried at 
Broughton June 20, 1744. Richard was buried at Broughton June 3, 1747, 
and Gerard's Hall, subsequently known as Haighton House estate, eventually 
passed to Richard's eldest son Evan John Gerard, Esq., captain in the Royal 
Lancashire Volunteers, whose portrait in oil is still at Haighton, and whose 
grandson and namesake was the last male heir of the family and died intestate 
at Haighton Nov. 7, 1832, his sister being a Franciscan nun at Taunton Lodge 
Convent. The senior Evan John's second wife, Elizabeth, widow of Thomas 
Davis, Esq., had been previously married to Henry Roper, loth Baron Teyn- 
ham, who died in 178 1. At one time the Gerards had the residence called 
Green Bank, subsequently occupied by Mr. M. A. Motler as a school for Catholic 
boys, then in the suburbs but now part of Preston. 

'f Parents of Bro. Joseph Valentine, O.S.B., baptized Nov. 10, 1723.

3|j One of this family settled in Friargate, Preston, and was the father of 
four Benedictines, where the eldest, Dom William Gregory Sharrock, subse- 
quently bishop and V.A.-W.D., was born in 1742. The father then removed 
to Walton-le-Dale, and apparently commenced the printing business carried 
on by his son, J. Sharrock, who pubhshed at W^alton, amongst other reUgious 
works, " The Paradise of the Soul " in 1771, and whose widow continued as a 
CathoUc bookseller in Preston for many years, and died at Ribchester Mar. 13, 
1827, aged 79. At Walton were bom the three other sons, Dom James 
Jerome in 1750, Dom John Dunston in 1754, and Bro. Walter William in 
1756, all having followed their uncle, Bro. WilUam Joseph Sharrock, to St. 
Gregory's at Douai (Kirk, Biog. Collns. MSS.; Snow, Necrology; Maziere 
Brady, Episc. Succ). Several Sharrocks of Ribbleton, Brindle, and Clayton 
were convicted of recusancy at the Preston sessions in Jan. 1714 and April 
1717. 

•f The name, Hugh especially, was very common about this locaUty, 
Euxton and Chorley, and though no relationship with Hugh Tootell, the errii- 
nent church historian, has liitherto been traced, these Tootells were no doubt 
remotely descended from the ancient Catholic lords of Healey so long seated 
at Lower Ilealey Hall.

Edmundsons of Durton, and other old Catholic families, and the heiress of one 
of them, Dorothy Walmesley, became the wife of Hugh Howarth, of Preston, 
and died July 3, 1766, aged 44, her husband outUving her till Mar. 26, 1794, 
aged 66, both being buried at Walton. Their daughter and heiress EUzabeth

•f Henry Gradell (or Gradwell), of Clifton-cum-Salwick in the Fylde, 
yeoman, was a younger brother of Robert Grad\vell, who held a leasehold 
under the Cliftons of Lytham Hall of a farm in Clifton. 

J Thomas Ivitchen, of Rough Heys in Ribbleton, was the son of John 
Kitchen, of the same, whose brother Richard resided at Fulwood. His wife's 
father, Richard Bolton, of Ribbleton, yeoman, was a Catholic non-juror in 
1717. In the previous year, 1716, Peploe, the Vicar of Preston, informed the 
Commissioners for Forfeited Estates (p. 134, P.R.O.), " Richard Bolton & 
John Banes, both of Preston, were left executors to one Mrs. Anne Brewer 
who left much money in trust as believed for Popish uses, for Bolton and 
Banes were .strangers to her, Sc only named for conveying the effects to the 
Priests." The Brewers resided at Fishwick and Moor House in Newton-

wick. The sons of Johu Brewer, of Fishwick, gent., ended with FF. John and 
Thomas Brewer, S.J., born respectively in 1732 and 1743, and Henry Brewer, 
of Moor House, and their sister and heiress Isabel carried the latter entailed 
estate in marriage to Richard Gillow, of Great Singleton. Of the latter branch 
were Dom John Bede Brewer. O.S.B., D.D., bom in 1742 at Ribbleton Lodge,

Henry Anselm Brewer, O.S.B., son of Henry Brewer, Esq., of Ribbleton Lodge,

j{t There were many Benedictines of this name, both monks and nuns, from 
this mission. Dom Richard Vincent Gregson, O.S.B., born in 1721, who died 
in 1800, was probably George's eldest son. 

f Thomas Duckworth, Ducketh, or Duckett, was apparently brother to 
Bartholomew Duckett, of Alston and Claughton, and uncle to Dom George 
Edmund Duckett, O.S.B. {C.R.S. xx, 302-3).

of Sholley, which had already formed connections with Essex, to which county 
it removed about this period, abandoned Sholley Hall, and ultimately sold 
their estate about 1870, when the portion of the venerable mansion that had 
not been demohshed a few years before was rebuilt by its purchaser. The 
house enclosed a court, and the present writer remembers the remains of the 
ancient domestic chapel. A long list of the chaplains could be given, one of 
them, the Rev. Charles Ingleby, having been buried at Ribchester only a few 
years before this date, on June 6, 1743. The last chaplain to reside in the hall, 
the Rev. William Fisher, removed the mission to Stydd Lodge, Ribchester, 
when the chapel was erected in 1789, and died there Nov. i, 1813.

* The Heatleys, always staunch recusants, had resided at Samlesbury, 
Brindle, and the neighbourhood for many generations. James at one time 
resided in Preston, and gave his name to Heatley Street. His son, Captain 
William Heatley, of Brindle Lodge, who died July 21, 1840, aged 76, was the 
squire so identified with the chapel at Brindle. During his life he was a gener- 
ous benefactor to chapels at Manchester, Preston and elsewhere, and bequeathed 
large sums to the Church,

bom at Walton in 1800, and ordained at Ushaw, who died at Ugthorpe, co.

•f" The name was really Withington, and she was probably a descendant of 
Jane Withington, widow, of Ribbleton, whose husband Richard died in or 
about 1 710, and she was convicted of recusancy at the Lancashire sessions 
Jan. 15, 1716-7, and Thomas Withington, of Clayton, on Sept. 3, 1717. James' 
son Richard, of Ribbleton and Preston, was attainted and convicted of treason 
for the part he took in the Rising of 171 5, and in consequence he emigrated to 
Maryland.

* Robert Worden, linen weaver, and Ellen Talbot were married the next 
day at Walton parish church {L.P.R.S. xxxvii, 433). James Talbot resided 
at Walton at this period, having married Mary Parke, a Protestant, and one 
of their sons. Rev. Thomas Talbot, born 1736, was ordained priest at Rome in 
1762 (Foley, Records S.J. vi, 494), was at Egton Bridge in 1773 whence he at- 
tended to Ugthorpe, subsequently was at Kilvington Hall, and West Wittou 
or Leybum, and died July 19, 1818, aged 82. Another son was Fr. John 
Talbot, S.J., born in 1737, who died at Rixton in 1801. And a third son. 
Rev. Richard Talbot, bom in 1738, was ordained with his brother at Rome in 
1762, and was at Croxdale Hall, the seat of the Salvins iu Durham, till 1771, 
when he was transferred to Bishop Thornton, Yorks., till his death Aug. i, 
1823, aged 85. James Talbot had two brothers — Fr. John Talbot alias 
Mansell, S.J., bom in 1708, who retired from the chaplaincy at Lytham Hall, 
the seat of the CUftons {C.R.S. xvi, 424), and died at his sister's house at 
Walton in 1799, aged 91, and Fr. Thomas Talbot, S.J., born in 171 7, who died 
in London in 1799, aged 82 (Foley, Records S.J. vii, 759). William Talbot, 
who removed from \Vheelton to Preston, was another son or else a nephew of 
James Talbot. He accumulated very considerable wealth in business, and 
purchased the manor of Wheelton from the Sudells, who had bought it from 
the Hoghtons of Hoghton Tower. After the death of his first wife, he married 
secondly at Walton, June 6, 1761, Dorothy Duddell, of a local 171 7 recusant 
family, and by her had a son William and several daughters, one of whom, 
Margaret, born June 18, 1766, died a nun at York Bar in 18 10, and another was 
buried at Walton in 1771. William Talbot, sen., died Aug. 10, 1813, aged 79, 
and was interred at Fernyhalgh beside his wife Dorothy, who died Oct. ro, 
1810, aged 74, where a tablet in the chapel commemorates them as well as a

granddaughter who died Aug. 21, 181 4, aged 9. The son, William Talbot, 
jun., of Preston, Esq., lord of the manor of Wheelton, married Catharine, 
daughter of Thomas Penswick of the Manor House, Ashton in Makerfield, 
steward to the Gerards of Bryn, and sister to Bishop Thomas Penswick, V.A.- 
N.D., and had three daughters — Dorothy, the wife of James Sidgreaves, of 
Inglewhite Lodge, Goosnargh, who died in 1853; Catharine, wife of John 
O'Reilly, brother to the Rt. Rev. Bernard O'Reilly, third Bishop of Liverpool 
(whose mother Teresa was the daughter of John Blundell, of Preston, com 
merchant), and who for a time after Mr. Talbot's death occupied the "Talbot 
mansion at Wheelton, but had no issue ; and Mary Anne, who died unmarried 
at Preston Mar. 14, 1840. Mr. Talbot died at Preston June 29, 1848, aged 78, 
and his granddaughter Catharine Sidgreaves, her only brother James Sid- 
greaves having died unmarried in 1853, ultimately became heiress to the 
Talbot and Sidgreaves estates, and married Sept. 13, 1859, ^Enas Ronald 
Macdonell, Esq., of Morar, Inverness-shire, and died at Edinburgh Nov. 14, 
1888. The Talbots were great benefactors to South Hill, Chorley, and to the 
Jesuits at Preston, where the schools attached to St. Walburge bear their 
name. 

:<: Some account of this family appears in C.R.S. vi, 196-7. WilUam 
Grimbaldeston was sent to Douay College as an ecclesiastical student in 1741, 
but left in 1743 having no vocation for the priesthood. He seems to have had 
family connections with this neighbourhood, and two of his sons became 
Benedictines, Dom William Clement, born at Alston in 1752, who died at 
Woolston in 1824, and Dom Joseph Paul, born at Alston in 1756, who died at 
Lambspring in 1 807. The family appear as farmers in various parts of the Fylde 
for centuries.

[Page 27] Martii i. D°* Gregson mater Joannis Gregson, Vidua D 
Southworth* Samsbury 

* Jane Gregson had been the last Southworth mistress of the venerable 
hall of Samlesbury. As the daughter and heiress of Richard ffarington, of 
Farington Hall in Ribbleton, Esq., by Grace, daughter of Thomas Middleton, 
of Leighton Hall, Esq., and sister of Sir George Middleton, Bart., she was 
twelve years of age at the time of Dugdale's Visitation of Lancashire, Aug. 6, 
1665, when her father returned his pedigree. The ffaringtons of Ribbleton, 
descending from the ffaringtons of Worden and Farington, had previously 
returned pedigrees in 1567 and 1613, and that of 1665 commences with Richard 
ffarington and his wife Ellen, daughter of Sir John Southworth, of Samlesbury 
Hall. Jane ffarington, the heiress of the Ribbleton estate, which was much en- 
cumbered, became the wife of Edward Southworth, Esq., the last of his great 
CathoUc family to reside at Samlesbury Hall, which Ukewise was irretrievably 
encumbered, and sold by him on Mar. 16, 1678, after which he retired to 
Balderstone, where he died in 1694, leaving a son John, bom in 1678, and.

according to Croston, another son, Thomas, born in 1690. The latter was 
set up by certain Southworths living at Bethnal Green, who claimed descent 
from the lords of Samlesbury, asserting that this Thomas had a son and name- 
sake, born Sept. 17, 1724, who quitted his native place early in life in conse- 
quence of a dispute with his family on religious matters, he having become a 
convert to the Protestant faith (vide Croston's Hist, of the Ancient Hall of 
Samlesbury) . The claim of the Bethnal Green Southworths was based on two 
documents which had come into their possession — a lease of twelve acres in 
Ribbleton, Fishwick, and Brockholes, originally granted to Hugh ffarington, of 
Elston, gent., 1680, and an assignment in 1 714 of the small interest that Thomas 
South worth, of Samlesbury, gent., possessed in the same premises, which were 
then in the tenure of John Gregson, of Ribbleton, gent., who had married his 
mother, Jane Southworth, the niece and heiress-at-law of the said Hugh 
ffarington, who died intestate in 1701. Under any circumstances the Thomas 
Southworth of Bethnal was not likely to be the eldest son of Thomas South- 
worth, of Samlesbury. Some of the family continued to reside in Ribbleton, 
and intermarried with connections of the ffaringtons. Ralph Southworth, 
of Ribbleton, married Catharine, daughter of John Kay, of Alston, and his 
wife Catharine, daughter of John Kendal, of Fulwood, and had issue five sons — 
(i) Richard, bom in 1742, who went to Douay College in 1756, became pro- 
fessor of philosophy and divinity, and eventually V.P. till he left for the 
mission Aug. 25, 1786, and was stationed at Brockhampton, in Hants, till his 
death Nov. 19, 1817; (2) Henry, went to Douay as an ecclesiastical student 
Nov, 8, 1762, but died in the college Feb. 5, 1765; (3) Ralph, bom July 20, 
1747, who also arrived at Douay Nov. 8, 1762, after being at Dame Alice's 
school at Fernyhalgh, and on leaving the college became chaplain to the 
Augustinian convent at Louvain, removed with the nuns at the Revolution to 
Spetisbury, where he remained till his death July 13, 1810; (4) Thomas, bom 
July 24, 1749, who also received a preliminary training under Dame Ahce, 
after which he went to Sedgley Park School, then under the presidency of his 
relative, the Rev. Hugh Kendal, Dec. 21, 1765, thence in May, 1766, proceeded 
to Douay, and in 1777 or 1778 returned to Sedgley Park to assist Mr. Kendal, 
whom he succeeded as president in July, 1778, and continued in that ofl&ce 
with an interval between 1793 and 1797 until his death at the Park June 11, 
1 8 16 5 and (5) WiUiam, who went to Sedgley from Dame Alice's school Dec. 
21, 1765, thence proceeded to Douay in May, 1766, came to the mission at 
Hathersage, co. Derby, in 1780, and, after serving at Moseley, co. Stafford, 
and at another place on the borders of Norfolk and Suffolk, finally became 
chaplain to a small community of nuns settled first at Church Hill, co. Wor- 
cester, and then at Wyre Piddle, co. Stafford, where he died rather suddenly 
after visiting Lady Smythe at Wootton House April 28, 181 4. 

John Gregson, of Balderstoue, the second husband of Jane ffarington, 
removed to Ribbleton after his marriage, and taking part in the Jacobite 
Rising of 1715 was convicted of high treason in 1716, but died immediately 
afterwards, for his will dated June i of that year, was proved at Chester in 
1 718. He and his wife had further mortgaged the Ribbleton estate, which 
was sold by his widow in 1720 to John Winckley, of Brockholes Hall and an 
attorney in Preston, only son of Thomas Winckley, registrar to the Duchy of 
Lancaster Chancery Court in Preston (Deeds of Farington Hall estate apud me). 
Farington Hall, Ribbleton, now corrupted into Faringdon Hall, has in recent 
times been converted into a popular place of amusement for Prestonians. 

Thus, with the death of Domina Gregson, Mar. i, 1722, was broken the last 
link of the knightly family of Southworth with its historical home of Samles- 
bury Hall, with all its glorious and sorrowful Catholic associations. Originally 
of Southworth, the family at a remote period settled at Samlesbury, and 
returned pedigrees at all the Visitations. Domina Gregson's first husband, 
Edward Southworth, was the descendant of the valiant Confessor of the Faith, 
Sir John Southworth, and third surviving son and heir of John Southworth 
and his wife EUzabeth, daughter of Philip Langton, of Low Hall, and his wife 
Mary, daughter of Abraham Abram, of Abram Hall.

* Edward Brettargh, of Heath Charnock, gent., second son of James 
Brettargh, of Brettargh Holt, co. Lane, Esq., of a strong Puritan family which 
returned a pedigree at Dugdale's Visitation in 1664, became a Catholic and was 
convicted of recusancy at Ormskirk July 22, 1700. He also appears with a 
daughter in a list of recusants at Chester, dated Nov. 15, 1706, with the note 
that his estates were much indebted. His son Jonathan (named after his 
father's elder brother, Jonathan Brettargh, of Brettargh Holt, aged eight at 
the Visitation of 1664, and the last squire to occupy the hall) resided at Ulnes 
Walton when he was convicted of recusancy at Lancaster April 30, 171 7, and 
by his wife Jenet was the father of Edward, James, and Richard, besides two 
daughters, Anne and Margaret. Richard became steward to the Stanleys of 
Hooton, CO. Chester, and his will proved in 1746, describes him as of Hooton, 
gent. His son and namesake held a similar position to the Blundells of Ince

!)e The Lemon House family represented a branch of the Woodcocks of 
Woodcock Hall in the adjoining township of Cuerden, which Dr. Kuerden, the 
Lancashire antiquary, writing in the seventeenth century, describes as a 
" fayre-built house upon the lower Cuerden Green the ancient in- 
heritance of John Woodcoc and his family for 400 or 500 years," of which an 
imperfect pedigree is given by Abraham in his Hist, of Blackburn, p. 733. 
John Woodcock alias ffarington, O.S.F., martyred at Lancaster Aug. 7, 1646, 
was a younger son of Thomas Woodcock, gent., and Dorothy, daughter of 
James Anderton, of Clayton Hall, Esq. Richard Woodcock, of Walton-le- 
dale, died in 1641, possessed of lands in Walton, Whittle, Cuerden, and also 
the estate of Bank Hall in Broughton, the ancient seat of the Singletons, 
which, however, may have been in secret trust, for towards the close of the 
century it was nominally vested in the Claytons for the Church, the Rev. 
George Crook being in possession. Lemon House was purchased from William 
Lemon, of Preston, gent., in 1663, by John Woodcock, of Walton Wood.

Richard's son died in 1690, leaving issue by his wife Elizabeth — Richard 
his son and heir, of Lemon House and Euxton, John, James, and William. 
Richard mortgaged Lemon House, and died at Euxton about 1694, leaving 
sons John and WiUiam, the elder son being a minor at his father's death, 
and he with the consent of his grandfather's surviving trustee, Christopher 
Preston, of Leyland, gent., and Robert Scarisbrick, of Scarisbrick Hall, Esq., 
further mortgaged the estate in 1720, 1723, 1724, etc., and getting into Chancery, 
the mortgages being unredeemed, was sold by the mortgagees some years after 
1733. The last John Woodcock of Lemon House registered as a Catholic 
non-juror in 171 7 estate at Walton and Clayton Brook, and his mother, 
Elizabeth Woodcock, of Walton, widow, property at Euxton. He had a son 
Richard, living in 1722, who apparently predeceased his father before 1742, 
when John was described as late of Lemon House. The latter's death, Jan. 8, 
1758, is later recorded in these registers as late of Lemon House. 

♦ Dom John Placid Acton, O.S.B., bom in London about 1667 (Birt, Obits 
O.S.B.), was chaplain to the Langtons at Low Hall in Hindley, where he died 
Nov. 25, and was buried at Wigan Nov. 28, 1727.

^ Dom Richard Anselm Walmesley, O.S.B., was the second son of Richard 
Walmesley, of Sholley Hall, Esq., by Jane, daughter of John Hoghton, of 
Park Hall, Esq. The pedigree says he died on May 5th, whilst Snow (Necrology) 
says the 12th. He was professed at Dieulward in 1710 and came on the 
mission to Woolston in 1719 till death at Ormskirk. 

f These Tootells can be traced in the Brindle and Walton parish registers 
for a long period without showing any connection with the Tootells of Lower 
Healey Hall, from whom, no doubt, they originally derived. At this time they 
farmed the Holt, which had been sold by the Gerards to the Walmesleys after 
they settled at Haighton.

* Domina Anna Cuerden, granddaughter of Edward Langton, of Low 
Hall, Esq., was widow of Matthew Cuerden, of Clayton-le-Dale and Cuerden, 
apparently son of WilUam Cuerden, of the same, noticed hereafter. The 
Cuerdens of Cuerden and Walton were of very ancient Hneage. The parent 
stem returned a pedigree at the Visitation of 1567, and ended with three 
sisters and coheiresses — Mary wife of George Chatterton, of Streta, co. Stafford, 
gent., Alice wife of Henry Banastre, of Bank Hall, Esq., whose daughter Alice 
married Sir Thomas Haggerston, of Haggerston Castle, co. Northumberland, 
Bart., and Isabel wife of Alexander Rigby, of Wigan, gent. Cuerden Hall, 
near Walton-le-Dale, passed to the Parkers of Entwistle with the marriage of 
the daughter of Christopher Banastre of Bank Hall, grandson of Henry 
Banastre by his third wife Ellen, daughter of Ralph Standish, of Standish 
Hall, Esq., and from that period Cuerden has remained the seat of the Parkers 
and their present representative. Through a daughter of the coheiress' 
uncle, William Cuerden, the Lancashire antiquarian. Dr. Richard Kuerden, of 
Preston, claimed to represent the original Cuerdens of Cuerden, and entered 
an intricate and somewhat fantastical pedigree at the Visitation of 1664. 
The original Cuerdens were always staunch recusants, and intermarried with the 
CathoUc famihes of Orrell, Woodcock, ffarington, Chorley, Eyves, etc. The 
Cuerdens represented by the husband of the lady of the text were an offshoot 
from the territorial lords of Cuerden, and, whilst generally residing at Walton 
and Clayton, always seem to have retained estate in Cuerden. 

t George Abbot, of Cuerdale, probably a near relative of Richard Abbot, 
of Lower Hall, Samlesbury, g.r., followed the same profession, tiecoming steward 
to Nicholas Blundell, of Crosby Hall, Esq., Nov. 20, 1713, according to Gibson's 
Blundell's Diary, pp. 119-20, where the editor confuses him with Richard 
Abbot. His son John, also of Cuerdale, by his wife Margaret, seems to have 
had a son and namesake, whose son married Auu, daughter of Thomas Burgess,

sje William Winckley, baptized Sept. 6, 1677, son of William Winckley, of 
Banister Hall, Esq., and his wife Isabel, daughter of Richard Elston, of 
Higher Brockholes Hall, gent., was admitted into the EngUsh College at 
Rome Sept. 12, 1699, aged 22 (Foley, Records S.J., vol. vi), where he was 
ordained priest Meir. 22, 1704, left the college for England via Paris on 
April 15, 1706, and served Banister Hall and other places. In 1712 he was 
still residing at Banister Hall, but frequently said Mass at Fox Hall near 
Blackpool, a sporting seat of Thomas Tyldesley the Jacobite squire, whose 
confessor he was, and who frequently mentions him in his diary. On Jam. 15, 
1716-7. he was convicted of recusancy at Lancaster as " Mr. William Winckley, 
a reputed Priest of Walton -le-Dale," and probably on account of the out- 
lawry of his brother Edward as a traitor he removed to Barbies Moor, Ulnes 
Walton, in the parish of Croston, the seat of Christopher Gradell, Esq., who 
had married as his second wife his aunt Anne, daughter of WilUam Winckley, 
of Banister Hall, gent., whose father, Thomas Winckley, of BilUngton, gent., 
younger son of Thomas Winckley, of Winckley Hall, gent., had obtained 
Banister Hall with his wife Rosamund, sister and heiress to her brother 
Thomas, and daughter of Edward Walmesley, of Banister Hall in Walton, 
gent., younger son of Thomas Walmesley, of Sholley Hall, Esq. Mr. Winckley 
became rural dean of Leyland Hundred, and remained at Barbies Moor till 
his death Aug. 25, 1742, aged almost 65, being interred in the private burial 
ground attached to the mansion. Bishop Goss informed the writer that an 
old stone cross, plain and rough, and without inscription, marked the spot 
where his remains were laid in the garden at Gradells in Barbies Moor. On 
Nov. I, 1740, he had estabUshed a Fund of ;^400 at Douay College for the 
education of a youth for the priesthood, preference to be given to youths akin 
to the Winckleys or Gradells, his nephews Rev. Thomas Winckley. of Banister 
Hall, and Christopher Gradell, of Barbies Moor, as well as Bishop Edward 
Dicconson, V.A.-L.D., being appointed trustees. This foundation is now at

jf William Cowling, of Chorley, yeoman, as a Catholic non-juror in 1717 
registered a house in Chorley for the Uves of himself and Bridget his wife. 
Apparently he was hving at Latham when he was convicted of recusancy at 
Lancaster April 10, 17 16, and finally he died at Euxton, his father and name- 
sake having died at Ley land in 1704. It is probable that he was the father 
of the Rev. John Cowling (C.R.S. xvi, 572). 

"f Edward Winckley had sold Banister Hall Feb. i, 1738, and retired to 
Preston. He was interred at Walton by the side of his wife Mary, who had 
preceded him on Dec. 7, 1709. As a member, his death was recorded by the 
First Catholic Charitable Society of Preston. 

S Edward Langton was the last male representative of the ever-staunch 
Catholic family seated at Low Hall in Hindley, descended from the Langtons, 
barons of Newton-in-Makerfield, lords of the manors of Walton-le-Dale and 
Lanton acquired with the heiress of the Banastres temp. Edw. II, whilst the 
family continued to be manorial lords of West Langton, co. Leicester, of whom 
was Cardinal Stephen Langton, Archbishop of Canterbury. The barony of 
Ne>yton expired in 1604 with the death of Sir Thomas Langton, who was 
buried in Westminster Abbey. The Langtons of Low returned a pedigree at 
Dugdale's Visitation of Lancashire in 1664, commencing with Peter Langton 
of Low, whose son Robert married a daughter of Sir Peter Leicester, of Tofte, 
CO. Chester. Edward Langton, of Low Hall, youngest son of Philip Langton, 
succeeded to his father's estates, and was a Catholic non- juror in 1717. Upon 
his death in 1733 his grandson William Pugh inherited the Low estate, which 
his nephew and heir-at-law, Edward Philip Pugh, who married Bridget Coyt- 
more, of Coytmore, and had two daughters and coheirs, sold to the Duke of 
Bridgewater in 1765. Edward Langton's great aunt, EUzabeth Langton, 
married John Southworth, of Samlesbury Hall, Esq., and her brother was Dom 
John Ambrose Langton, O.S.B., professed at Dieulward in 1615, and his nephew 
Thomas, bom 1642, son of Edward Langton, of Newton, gent., and his wife 
Helen Harrison, became a secular priest at the English College at Rome in 
1669 under the alias of Joseph Harrison (Foley, Records S.J. vi). Another 
nephew of the Benedictine, John Langton alias Baldwin, came to the mission 
from Lisbon in 1670, and died at Higher Shutthng fields in Walton-le-Dale in 
1684. The Langtons suffered heavily for their rehgion, both in fine and im- 
prisonment, as well as for their loyalty to the Stuarts, PhiUp Langton being 
one of the prisoners in the Jacobite trials in 1694. Low Hall, now a farm- 
house surrounded by a moat, formerly contained a chapel which was served 
throughout the days of persecution, and towards the close of the seventeenth 
century it became established as a Benedictine mission, transferred when the 
estate was sold by the Pughs to Strangcways, and ultimately removed in 1 789 
to Hindley, where it still contmues.

connected, but their pedigree is somewhat difficult to trace. The following 
names appear in the Preston Guild Rolls {C.R.S. ix) — Ralph, gent., 1742, 
John of Euxton, gent., 1662, Edward and Ralph, sons of Thomas then deceased! 
1682. Edward ffameworth with his wife Alice and Wilham ffameworth, of 
the parish of Wigan, were on the recusant roll for 1667, whilst Edward ffame- 
worth of Euxton was buried at Leyland Sept. 3, 1660, and Edward and Ralph 
sons of Thomas then deceased were at the Guild of 1682. There were others of 
the same names residing at Wheelton and Walton. Ann Famworth, daughter 
of Edward of Euxton, married at Leyland Aug. 2, 1670, Thomas Rishton, of 
Preston, gent. Edward Famworth, of Runshaw Hall, gent., brother of the 
two Benedictines and the eldest son of John who was buried at Leyland Nov. 
16, 1691, was described as of Fishwick, in the parish of Preston, at the time of 
his marriage at Walton-le-Dale, with Dorothy, daughter of John Crosse, of 
Crosse Hall, Chorley, and Shaw Hill, Esq., May 3, 1702. Her sister Jane was 
the wife of John ffrance, of Little Eccleston Hall and RawcUffe Hall, Esq., 
and her family had intermarried with the Langtons of Low Hall, the Banastres 
of Banke Hall, and other county famihes. Nicholas BlundeU, of Crosby, 
speaks of calling at Runshaw Hall to see Miss Famworth, sister of Edward, 
on Oct. 5, 1 713 (Gibson, Diary, p. 119). Edward had a daughter Mary, 
christened at Leyland May 31, 1703 {Leyland Fegisters), and she became the 
wife of William Patten, of London, Esq., heir of Thomas Patten, of Patten 
Lane, Warrington {vide Pedigree of Wtlson-Patten, Lord Winmarleigh), and 
her son. Dom Thomas Patten, O.S.B., bora in 1727, died June 4, 1787. Ed- 
ward Famworth, of Runshaw Hall, gent., was convicted of recusancy at 
Lancaster Sept. 3, 1716, and in the following year registered his estate as a 
Catholic non-juror. He died in 1747. His daughter may have been his 
only child and heiress, for Runshaw Hall ceased to be occupied by Famworths 
about this time.

* Richard Gerard, bom May 10, 1701 {Broughton Registers, L.P.R.S, 
xlviii), was a younger son of Evan Gerard, of Alston and Haighton, gent, 
(son of John Gerard, of Brindle, gent.), whose marriage-covenant with his 
wife Ann was dated Feb. 8, 1696. He went to London and engaged in business 
as a draper, his residence being in the parish of St. Martin's-in-the-Fields. 
Unfortunately the printed marriage-registers of Brindle parish church are not 
brought down to this date, and hence the surname of Richard's wife Helen 
has not been ascertained. She may have been a Heatley, daughter or niece 
of Peter Heatley, of Whittle-Woods, one of the witnesses to the marriage, a 
Catholic non-juror in 171 7, and a younger brother of Hugh Heatley, grand- 
father of WilUam Heatley, Esq., of Brindle Lodge. Richard Gerard's eldest 
brother John died unmarried and was buried at Broughton June 20, 1744, 
when " Dominus Richard Gerard de Gerard's Hall, Haighton," and his son, 
succeeded to the estate. He died May 31, and was buried at Broughton June 3, 
1747. Gerard's Hall subsequently became known as Haighton House, after 
the new residence was erected just below the old hall by Richard's eldest son, 
Evan John Gerard. The latter married first Elizabeth, dau. of Richard Farrer, 
Esq., twice Lord Mayor of York, by Margaret, dau. of John Napier of York, 
merchant tailor, and, secondly, EUzabeth, relict of Henry Roper, loth Baron 
Teynham, by whom he had no issue. Evan Richard, the son and heir by the 
first marriage, married Elizabeth, daughter of George Blanchard, of Alston, 
gent., and died Oct. 25, 1823, aged 51, leaving a son, a second Evan John, captain 
in the Royal Lancashire Volunteers, whose portrait in oil is still at Haighton, 
who died Nov. 7, 1832, aged 28, the last male representative of the Gerards of 
Haighton. The estate with the contents of the mansion, including an old 
library, was then sold by his only sister, a Franciscan nun at Taunton, to James 
Francis Anderton, Esq., whose wife Mary, daughter of James Sidgreaves, of 
Inglewhite Lodge, Esq., was first cousin to the last of the Gerards, their mother 
being sister to the wife of Evan Richard Gerard. Mass was very frequently 
said at Haighton, where the ancient chalice is still used in the domestic chapel. 

ifi John Walmesley was the third son of Richard Walmesley, of Sholley 
Hall, Esq., and his wife Jane, daughter of John Hoghton, of Park Hall, Esq. 
From St. Omers he had entered the Society at Walton, but had been dismissed 
owing to his mind giving way, and thus being omitted from the printed 
Collectanea S.J., his missionary career cannot at present be traced. 

S Widow of Thomas Naylor and mother of the incumbent of Brindle 
mission, Dom William Placid Naylor, O.S.B.

* By her first husband, John Harrison, of Lea, administration to whose 
estate was granted in 1738, she was the mother of tlie Rev. John Harrison, of 
Cottam, and Lawrence Cottam, of Preston {C.R.S. vi, 168; xv, no). Her 
second husband was a Gradwell of the Clifton family. James Harrison, of 
Preston, probably brother to John of Lea, was a member of the Catholic Breth- 
ren, and either died or his subscription to the Society ceased in Feb. 1737, his 
will being proved in 1738. Further information about the family may be 
culled from the great Harrison Trial, edited by Earwaker in 1887. 

f Dom Robert Michael Paul Gilmore, O.S.B., a native of Ramsbury, co. 
Wilts., was chaplain to the Gascoignes at Parlington Hall and Aberford, co. 
York. According to the Benedictine Necrology he died on Feb. 20, 1748. 

{ For note on the Vaux or Vause family, vide C.R.S. vi, 94M. This branch, 
in humble circumstances, of the Blackrod family appears in this locality to- 
wards the close of the seventeenth century. Stephen Vause, of Samlesbury, 
was a recusant in 1716. 

S From this family derived Dom James Edmund Poole, O.S.B., bom in 
Liverpool in 1819, and also died there in 1878. •

Eventually the Lovely estate was purchased by the Starkies ol Huntroyd, and 
the old seventeenth century mansion, consisting of a central block with pro- 
jecting and gabled wings, was enlarged and restored by Le Gendre Nicholas 
Starkie, Esq., of Huntroyd, as a temporary residence for himself. The Win- 
ders were in some way allied to the Waltons of Little Walton Hall in Walton- 
le-Dale, and after the sale of their ancestral estate by Thomas Walton on 
Oct. 26, 1682, according to the deed cited by Abram, and given by the present

of this family. 

t The family of Blackledge, originally Blacklach, was of some antiquity 
in Leyland, no doubt deriving from Blacklach House, subsequently known as 
the Old Hall of Leyland, in which parish the family continued to possess pro- 
perty for many generations. In the reign of EUzabeth John Blackledge, of 
Leyland, married Janet, daughter of WiUiam Fleetwood, of Heskin Hall, 
Esq., her brother John marrjdng Joan, daughter of Sir Thomas Langton, 
baron of Newton, and her sister Agnes being the wife of Thomas Gillibrand , of 
Chorley Hall. The Blackledges subsequently resided at Copthurst in Whittle- 
le-Woods, and a stone in Leyland churchyard is inscribed with the names of a 
number of the family buried there^John Blackledge, of Copthurst, yeoman, 
Sept. 9, 1688, and others. WiUiam Blackledge, of Wheelton, yeoman, was a 
Catholic non-jurorin 171 7, and registered freehold and leasehold estate in which 
his son Henry and daughter Anne were interested. It was the father and son 
who by deed dated May i, 1729, conveyed to Matthew Talbot, of Wheelton, the 
premises for the chapel there. The son's wife was Jane, daughter of Oliver 
Whittle, of Wheelton. About 1832 Mr. William Blackledge purchased the 
estate of Wliite Lee in Goosnargh, the ancient inheritance of the Keighlej's 
(or Kighleys), which descended to his son, John Blackledge, of Clayton-le- 
Woods, who left his estate to the Audertons of Euxton Hall. 

$ Dom Anthony Cuthbert Hutchinson, O.S.B. , a native of Yorkshire, 
probably son of WilUam Hutchinson and nephew of Dom Joseph Wilfrid 
Hutchinson, O.S.B., the former missioner at Brindle, and Dom Matthew 
Dimstan Hutchinson, O.S.B., both of whom were bom at Hexham in Northum- 
berland, was missioner at Aberfbrd, co. York, after the chaplaincy had ceased 
at Parhngton Hall, the seat of the Gascoignes. His uncle, Mr. William, was 
brother to Mrs. Hugh Heatley.

Sydall, etc.), of Brindle, and had a family of whom was probably Philip Shar- 
pies, a professed cleric O.S.F. at Douai in 1767 (Thaddeus, Franciscans in Eng., 
p. 303). Of this family also were Bishop James Sharpies and his brother, the 
Rev. Henry Sharpies, of Alston, sons of William Sharpies who had settled in 
Liverpool as a timber merchant {C.R.S. xv, 157-8, 55), and was the first im- 
porter of timber into Liverpool, The Bishop's nephew, Henry Sharpies, of 
Oswaldcroft, Esq., J. P., born in 1808, died Dec. 17, 1874, and was buried

father, William Salvin, of Croxdale Hall, co. Durham, had as his first wife 
Mary, daughter of Sir Edward Gascoigne, 5th Bart., thus forming a reminiscent 
link with the Gascoignes appearing in the Brindle register. Monica, one of 
the daughters of Henry Sharpies, married Charles Joseph Sibeth, Esq., son of 
Werner Sibeth, of Downey Abbey, co. Herts, Esq. 

* Doubtless of this family was Dom Richard Wolstan Ingham alias 
Walmesley, O.S.B., professed at Paris in 1630, ordained in 1634, and died at 
Paris 1638 (Snow, Necrology, p. 44). 

f Mary Kighley, of Preston, was formerly housekeeper to Dom Thomas 
Simpson, O.S.B., of Cuerden. 

{ Widow of Hugh Heatley, of Samlesbury, yeoman, and sister of Dom 
Joseph Wilfrid Hutchinson, O.S.B., the former missioner at Brindle. Her son, 
Mr. James Heatley, had removed from Samlesbury to Dunkenhalgh, where 
he was probably agent to the Walmesley estate for the heiress. Lady Catherine 
Stourton, widow of Charles, 14th Lord Stourton, and previously wife of Robert, 
7th Lord Petre, resided at Dunkenhalgh. Her ladyship died in 1785, and the 
Dunkenhalgh estate passed to her grandson, Robert Edward, 9th Lord Petre, 
and through him to lus grandson, Henry William Petre, Esq., of Dunkenhalgh, 
whose descendants still reside there. 

5 Mary Mather, relict of Robert Burgess, of Cronton, and wife of Nicholas 
Mather, of Clayton Brook, was mother of Thomas Burgess, of Clayton Brook, 
Dame Margaret Burgess, O.S.B., bom in 1721, who died in prison at Com- 
pi^gne during the French Revolution in 1795. and Dame Scholastica Burgess, 
O.S.B., who died in 1770. The Nicholas Mather of the text came from Abram,

subsequently resided at Newton-in-Matherfield, and he died in 1743. The

Mathers at one time fanned Fishwick Hall, formerly the seat of the Eyves 
family, afterwards acquired by the Viscounts Molyneux of Sefton, and there 
was a chapel in the hall more or less served throughout penal times. Early 
in the reign of James II, Dom Bartholomew Gregory Hesketh.O.S.B., a younger 
son of Gabriel Hesketh, of White Hill in Goosnargh, Esq., erected a semi- 
public chapel adjoining Fishwick Hall, which was leased to the Benedictines 
by Caryl, 3rd Viscount Molyneux, for the three lives of — Dom James Mather, 
O.S.B., bom at Fishwick Hall and then Prior of St. Lawrence's at Dieulward, 
who was professed there in 1668 and afterwards served in London till his death 
Jan. 16, 1724; Dom John Augustine Hudson, O.S.B., son of Alexander Hud- 
son, of Fishwick, linen-weaver, a catholic non-juror in 1717, who was professed 
at Dieulward in 1686 and died at Flixton, Suffolk, in 1732; and Dom Hugo 
Gregory Helme, O.S.B., son of William Helme, of Blackmoss in Chipping and 
subsequently of Lea, gent., professed at Dieulward in 1686, succeeded Dom 
Gregory Hesketh at Fishwick Hall, and died there Aug. 11, 1696. The grant 
of the lease of Fishwick Hall and estate included a messuage in the possession 
of Edward Ireland alias Green, who died in 1720. Dom Gregory Hesketh had 
been professed at Dieulward in 1653, and had served Fishwick Hall for some 
time before he obtained the lease for the benefit of his Order, and continued to 
do so till his death Jan. 25, when his remains were conveyed to the family 
burial-place at Goosnargh, and there interred Feb. i, 1694-5. He had been 
definitor of the province from 1685 to 1693. The chapel which he had erected 
at Fishwick was furnished with organ and pulpit, and had two bells to call 
the congregation to service. At the revolution of 1688 the chapel fittings and 
altar furniture were hidden, and the two bells were taken down and buried — 
never to be rehung. Dom Gregory was succeeded at Fishwick by Dom Arthur 
Francis Watmough, O.S.B., bom 1665, son of William Watmough, of Westby, 
who died in 1685. He was professed at Dieulward in 1684, came after or- 
dination to Fishwick Hall, but did not stay long as he was appointed pro- 
curator at Rome in 1698, eventually became president-general, 171 3-7. and 
died at Fonthill-Giffard, co. Wilts., Aug. 15, 1733 (Snow, Necrology, p. 199). 
Some of the Mathers after leaving Fishwick Hall settled at Broughton, Fulwood, 
Goosnargh, and Whittingham. Thomas Mather died at Goosnargh in 1775, 
and Nicholas Mather, formerly of Broughton, died at Whittingham in Goos- 
nargh in 1785. One of these was the father of Dom James Cyril Mather, 
O.S.B., bom 1769, professed at Lambspring in 1790, who died at Hildesheim 
Mar. 12, 1812. Nicholas Mather, the second husband of the lady of the text, 
who died in 1763, was probably the grandfather of Dom Cyril. 

♦ He was evidently the Thomas Talbot, son of John and Alice, of Brindle, 
who married, Feb. 23, 1748, Dorothy, daughter of Richard and Alice Valentine, 
of Samlesbury. 

t She was the daughter of Alexander Osbaldeston, of Sunderland Hall, 
Esq., and his wife Lettice, daughter of John Ajoiesworth (or Ainsworth), 
of Pleasington Hall, Esq. Her father died in Sept., 1729. He registered his 
estate as a Catholic non-juror in 171 7, declaring that /i.ooo of his debts was 
due to his daughter Mary as her portion. Alexander Osbaldeston, of Preston, 
gent., was married at Broughton Jan. 17, 1748, to Ellen Clayton. He was 
probably son and heir to Alexander Osbaldeston, the younger, of Sunderland, 
and a nephew of Mary, but if so the marriage must have been a second one. 
Sunderland Hall estate had then been sold, and the family had removed to 
Preston. Abram, in his History of Blackburn, pp. 419-20, gives an account 
and pedigree of the family, but is very unsatisfactory about the last three 
generations. John Osbaldeston returned a pedigree at Dugdale's Visitation

Aynesworth, of Newton, gent. The younger Richard founded the famiUes 
seated at The Hill and The Brooks in Goosnargh, and his grandson, John Black- 
bume, of The Hill, gent., was the grandson of the Rev. James Blackburne, 
who died at the Enghsh College at Lisbon in July, 1754, having transferrej 
The Hill in Goosnargh to the Franciscans, who had previously served the mis- 
sion at White Hill in Goosnargh, the seat of the Heskeths, and finally in 
1833-4 it was taken over by the Benedictines, who still retain the charge.

Cuerden Green in 1746, and served both chapels till his sudden death whilst 
on a visit to the Benedictine mission at Ormskirk. Little Mosna, as it was 
usually called, was one of the old Benedictine missions in Walton-le-Dale, and 
its history will come under that of Bro^vnedge. 

£ The Linakers were farmers at Altcar, where several of them were con- 
victed of recusancy in April, 1716. Mary Linaker, widow, resided with her 
relations at Scarisbrick, being a sister of Dom \^'illiam Placid Naylor.

* Anne Shuttleworth was apparently daughter of Richard Shuttleworth, 
of Preston and Brockside, gent., who was executed as a traitor at Gallows 
Hill. Preston, Jan. 28, 1716, for joining Prince Charlie at Preston. His estate 
in Bilsborough was forfeited. He was a friend of Thomas Tyldesley, the 
Jacobite squire, and is frequently mentioned in his diary. The death of 
Anne's sister Jane appears in the following September. 

t He may be identical with WiUiam Cuerden, of Clayton-le-Dale. chap- 
man, son of Matthew Cuerden who was convicted of recusancy Sept. 3, 1717. 
and as a Catholic non-juror registered an estate there in which his infant son 
Thomas had an estate in fee simple; also freehold estates in Cuerden, mention- 
ing therewith his sons Thomas and Matthew; and Ukewise a leasehold estate 
in Walton-le-Dale. Apparently Anne Cuerden, grand-daughter of Edward 
Langton, previously noticed as dying in 1740, wais the widow of William 
Cuerden's second son Matthew. Fr. Thomas Cuerden, S.J., who first served 
in London, then became chaplain to the Cliftons at Westby Hall, and died at 
Scholes in 1793 was thought to be the elder son, but the date of his birth, 
June 25, 1718, as given by Foley {Records S.J. vii, 186) hardly can be reconciled 
with the foregoing registration. On the other hand, Fr. Zimmerman (Carmel 
in England, p. 369) says that Fr. John Hyacinth Cuerden, discalced CarmeUte, 
bom at Croston, June 23, 1696, was the son of WiUiam Cuerden and his wife 
Jane Rymer, and was ordained priest Sept. 21, 1720, was chaplain to Nicholas 
Blundell at Crosby Hall, afterwards served in the same capacity to Lord 
Molyneux at Sefton and Croxteth, and died in London Sept. 28, 1761. It 
should be remarked that his birth does not appear in the registers of Croston 
parish church. 

$ Ann Critchlow, of Goosnargh-cum-Newsham, widow of William Critch- 
low, of Clock House, Lea, gent., who died in 1711, registered as a Catholic 
non -juror in 1717, an estate in Woodplumpton for life as dower. The Critch- 
lowes (Chrichlows, Crouchleys, or Critchleys) were of considerable antiquity. 
Roger Critchlowe, of Chamock Richard, settled at Lea through his marriage

with Margaret, illegitimate daughter of Alexander Hoghton, of Lea Hall and 
Hoghton Tower, who died in 1581, leaving by will, but revoked by codicil, 
considerable legacies to Mrs. Critchlowe. William Critchlowe, gent., probably 
her son, was living at Lea in 161 3. During the civil wars the residence of the 
Critchlowes was partially demolished, and was rebuilt by William Critchlow. 
In 1679 a clock was put up in the front of the house which struck the hour, 
and from that it became known as Clock House. The family lost its Faith 
towards the end of the eighteenth century, the last possessor of the estate being 
chiefly remarkable for his loose and profane language. James Critchley, son 
of William, the last of Lea, was captain in the Liverpool Light Horse, and died 
in 1873. All the family were distinguished for their size, being very tall and 
heavy men. Towards the close of the eighteenth century the estate was 
purchased by George Gillow, of Moor House, Newton-cum-Scales, gent., 
subsequently transferred to William Smith, of Wards House, Salwick, and 
Forton, gent., and finally sold by Joseph Gillow, Esq., J. P., after which its 
name was changed to Lea Lodge. A new house was erected shghtly in front 
of the old one in Sidgreaves Lane, but the works and face of the ancient clock 
were still in position in the old one early in the last century. 

sis Thomas Chamley, of Durton in Broughton, chapman, son of Hugh 
Charnley, of the same, gent., a great benefactor to the chapel at Lady Well, 
Femyhalgh, registered as a CathoUc non-juror in 1717 an estate leased to 
his father by WilUam Langton. of Broughton Tower, Esq. Thomas Chamley 
and his wife Grace were both buried on the same day at Broughton Oct. 3, 
1723 {L.P.R.S. xlviii, 108). The Chamley residence subsequently became the 
seat of the famous school kept by Dame Alice Harrison in connection with the 
mission at Femyhalgh, and in 1883 when the present writer visited it there 
remained in the barn attached to the present farm a long, narrow oak table, 
stoutly built and supported by six turned legs of great thickness, and carved 
in a panel in front over the centre legs are the initials and date — " H.C. — 1629 — 
A.C." — but the initials seemed of later carving than the date, the letters 
" H.C." and " A.C." corresponding with the date being over the side legs. 
They stand for Hugh Chamley and his wife " A," 1629, and their grandson 
Hugh and his wife " F." This table had been used in Dame AUce's school 
for more than haU-a-century before she retired to the Gerards at Garswood 
about 1760, and it was covered with initials cut by the boys, amongst whom 
were many who subsequently became distinguished ecclesiastics, such as 
Alban Butler, the writer of the " Lives of the Saints," the South worths, of 
whom Hugh was President of Sedgley Park, Hugh Kendal, John Daniel, the 
last President of Douay, John White, S.J., Charles Tootell, O.S.F., Dr. John 
Gillow, President of Ushaw, and many others. The Charnleys were inter- 
married with the Heskeths of White Hill and other good families. Hugh 
Chamley, the younger, of Durton, gent., by deed dated Mar. 16, 1685, conveyed 
the site of the well or spring at Femyhalgh called Lady Well, part and parcell 
of the ancient chantry, his inheritance, to George Leybume, of Nateby Hall, 
Esq., Nicholas Wadsworth, of Haighton Hall, Esq., Cuthbert Hesketh, of 
WkLte Hill, Esq., the donor's son-in-law, and Robert Shepherd, of Broughton, 
gent., in trust for the secular mission at Femyhalgh. The property conveyed 
adjoined the old chapel-house, to which a new chapel was added at this time 
and openly used. John Gerard, of The Holt, Brindle, who acquired about 
this time the estate at Haighton, near Femyhalgh, subsequently known as 
Gerard Hall, was a great supporter of the chapel at Lady Well, and settled 
upon it in trust some ;^300 according to the evidence of Richard Hitchmough, 
the pervert priest and informer in 1716 (P.R.O. Forfeited Estates Papers, p. 134). 
The Rev. Peter Gooden (Gillow, Biog. Diet. Engl. Caths. ii, 424-8), the incum- 
bent at Lady Well, was one of the witnesses to the Chamley conveyance, the 
others being John Daniel, of Durton, and Nicholas Glave (Gleave), of Brough-

ton. This distinguished man resigned the chaplaincy at Leighton Hall about 
1680, and had opened a sort of academy at Aldclifie Hall, near Lancaster, the 
residence of the survivors of the seven Misses Dalton, better known as the 
" Catholic Virgins," but from the fact of his being at Lady Well at this time 
it would appear that owing to persecution he had removed to this secluded 
spot and joined his school with that long conducted at Lady Well, the Rev. 
Richard Sherburne alias Tunstall having recently been in charge. This good 
priest came to the English mission from Douay in 1625, and from the fact 
that many classical books still at Femyhalgh bear his autograph with the 
scribblings of students between 1650 and 1695, it would seem almost certain 
that a Cathohc school had secretly existed here for a great number of years 
during penal times. Amongst the autographs on the fly-leaves of the books — 
" In Usum Scholae Stx-. Maria> ad Fontem " — are " Samuell Hart his Bk., 
witnesse Christopher Home April 29th 1651. Amen "; " Raufe Tyldesley " 
(in Prosodia. 1650), bom in 1644, being the third son of General Sir Thomas

Alice had retired to Garswood, latterly by Peter Newby (Biog. Diet, v, 163-4) 
who took Gerard Hall, Haighton, near Femyhalgh, for that purpose in 1780, 
when the Gerards removed for a time to Green Bank near Preston. Thus

Scarisbrick, of Scarisbrick Hall, Esq., who likewise assumed the name of

:^ Oswald Eyves, or Eaves as the name was latterly spelt, was son of Oswald 
Eyves, of Ashton-super-Ribble, younger son of Richard Eyves, of Fishwick 
Hall, Esq., by Jane, daughter of Nicholas Grimshaw, of Clayton Hall, Esq. 
The elder Oswald's will was proved in 1715, and his widow EUzabeth registered* 
in 1 7 1 7 her house and estate in Ashton held for life under her marriage settle- 
ment by her late husband, the trustees being WiUiam Haydock, of Cottam 
Hall, and Thomas Cooper, of Cuerden, both deceased. The elder Oswald's 
nephew, Dom Thomas Eyves, O.S.B., bom in 1659, son of James Eyves, of 
Fishwick, gent., died at Dieulward April 29, 1747, and his sister. Dame Mary 
Eyves, O.S.B., died at Cambrai July 28, 1732. The younger Oswald was father 
to Dom Oswald Eyves, or Eaves, O.S.B., bom in 1739 and professed at Dieul- 
ward in 1755, was at Cuerden 1764-80, and Brownedge 1780 till death Oct. 15, 
1 793, and his sister Anne, eventual heiress to the Eyves family upon his death) 
married John ffrance, of Greaves Town in Ashton-super-Ribble, gent., the repre- 
sentative of a very ancient family from whom descended the ffrances of Little 
Eccleston Hall and Rawchffe Hall, whose grandson and namesake, of Greaves 
Town, married Oct. 25, 1826, Mary, daughter of John Gillow, of Salwick Hall, 
gent. The Eyves family of Fishwick Hall always retained the Faith and suf- 
fered severely in consequence. They intermarried with many famiUes of 
distinction as shown in the pedigree they returned at Dugdale's Visitation in 
1664. Mass was very regularly said in the domestic chapel at Fishwick Hall 
from the reign of Elizabeth. It was reported to the privy council in 1586 that 
Sir Evan Banester, a Marian priest, of Preston, was being harboured by Mis- 
tress Jane Eyves. The family ceased to reside at Fishwick Hall towards the 
close of the 17th century. 

t She was buried at Broughton Dec. 13, 1756 (L.P.R.S. xlviii, 127). 

J She subsequently became Mrs. Graystoke. Her father farmed the 
site of Chfton old hall, then known as Hall-yards, held under lease from the 
CUftons to his father Richard Gradwell, who died in Jan. 1706-7. Robert 
registered his estate as a Catholic non-juror in 171 7, and was buried at Kirk- 
ham Mar. 24, 1746, leaving by his wife, AUce Holden, a son Richard, of Chfton, 
whose son John married Margaret, daughter and heiress of John Gregson, of 
Balderston. The Grad wells remotely descended from a younger son of the 
Gradells of Barbies More, a very ancient and honourable Cathohc family.

Fr. Joseph Beaumont, S.J., who died at Cowley Hill Feb. 13, 1773, aged 71, and 
was buried at Windleshaw. Mrs. Eccleston was a very generous benefactor to 
the Jesuits of the district until her death at Cowley Hill June 15, 1793, aged 81, 
after being a widow for 51 years (Foley, Records S.J., v). Just before her death, 
to supply the loss of the mission at Eccleston in 1783, when the property passed 
to the Scarisbrick family, the pious widow established a mission at St. Helens, 
which was opened by her chaplain, Fr. Joseph Barrow, S.J., Sept. i, 1793, and 
called Lowe House after its founder, and dedicated to St. Mary, and he con- 
tinued to serve it till his death Jan. 5, 1813, aged 72, being buried near the altar 
of the chapel. Meanwhile, Fr. William Doyle, S.J., succeeded him at Cowley 
Hill, where he had 50 communicants when Bishop Matthew Gibson made his 
visitation in 1784, and confirmed 79 persons, but he died on the following Jan. 
^5> 1785, aged 67, and was buried in the neighbouring old Catholic cemetery 
of Windleshaw. After that the mission was taken over by the Benedictines, 
and Dom James Berry, O.S.B., took charge in 1786, but died on Nov. 4 in that 
year, after which the chapel at Cowley Hill ceased to be the seat of a mission . 
Dr. Anthony Low's brother, Charles Low, was lord of the manor of Gratton, 
CO. Derby. The Lows were intermarried with the Eyres and other leading 
families (Payne, Records, p. 55).

and manufacturer in Blackburn. Osbaldeston Hall, situated on the left bank 
of the Ribble, and intrenched with a moat, was a fine mansion, containing a 
banqueting hall and many handsomely panelled chambers with antique 
mantel-pieces and chimney-breasts covered with elaborate scroll carving, 
bearing the initials E: O: and M: O:, representing Sir Edward Osbaldeston and 
Maud, his wife, the daughter and coheiress of Sir Thomas Halsall, of Halsall 
and Selwick, who died respectively in 1590 and 1592. There are also inscrip- 
tions with dates and armorial bearings elsewhere on the buildings. The Osbal- 
destons intermarried with the oldest and leading families of the country and 
returned pedigrees at the visitations of 1587, 161 3, and 1664. Fr. Francis a 
S. Magdalena Osbaldeston, O.S.F., son of Sir Edward Osbaldeston by Mary, 
daughter of Francis ffarington, of Hutton Grange, bom very early in the seven- 
teenth century, was approved for preaching and hearing confessions in 1648, 
suffered imprisonment during the Gates Plot in 1679, but escaped death and 
died at Douai in 1685 or 1686. 

^ He died on the following day, and the Low Hall estate passed to bis 
nephew and heir-at-law, Edward Philip Pugh, Esq. Thus the ancient seat 
of the Langtons ceased to shelter a chaplaincy and finally passed out of 
Catholic possession.

* Edward Craven, of Leyland, and " Amey " [Emerentiana] Heys were 
married by licence at Walton parish church Oct. 27, 1770 {L.P.R.S. xxxvii, 
438). The Cravens ol Craven Fold in Dinkley and of Walton, Clayton, and 
district were of some antiquity. Dom Vincent Craven, O.S.B., professed at 
Dieulward in 1686, died there Dec. 9, 1704. He was no doubt one of the Cravens 
of Craven Fold in Dinkley and Elkar in Billington, of whom Abram gives a 
pedigree in his Hist, of Blackburn, p. 749, but is difficult to identify, as " Vin- 
cent " was probably his name in religion. It is most probable, however, that 
he was one of the sons of John Craven, of Elkar — Giles, Richard, Edward, or 
John, recusants temp. Charles II. Richard Craven, of Craven Fold, and his 
relative, Richard Craven, of Elkar in BiUington, were Cathohc non-jurors in 
1717. Finally the family settled at Westwood House in Clayton Green, 
Dalton Lodge, and Whittle-le- Woods. John Craven went to Sedgley Park 
School in 1784, and in 1795 married Margaret, daughter of Jasper Gibson, 
attomey-at-law, of Hexham, eldest son of Jasper Gibson, of Stonecroft, Hex- 
ham. He died at Clayton Green May 28, 1852, aged 80. Two of his sons, 
Edward and Jasper, went to Sedgley Park in 1806, the former eventually d3ang 
at South Hill, Chorley, April 13, 1869, and the latter, after finishing his studies 
at Ushaw College, returned to Sedgley as a master, 1822-38, and died at the 
English College at Lisbon in Sept. 1862. A third son, Wilham, bom Feb. 27, 
1799, went to Sedgley in 1811, and thence to Lisbon in 1814, but returned 
home in 18 16. Another of the family, Giles Craven, died at Preston May 9, 
1824; and Mrs. Emma Craven died at Dalton Lodge July 3, 1844, aged 39. 
John Arthur Craven, who went to Sedgley in 1857, entered the Bengal Pro- 
vincial Service, was a magistrate, and died at Serampore Max. 16, 1899, aged 
54; and James Craven, of the East Indian Railway Service, died suddenly 
Dec. 10, 1902, aged 59. Another member of the family, John Craven, with his 
son-in-law, Nicholas Hayes, established the grocery firm of Hayes and Craven, 
in Preston, and in his latter years retired to Westwood House, Clayton Green, 
and became a justice of the peace, dying there Dec. 3, 1898, aged 75. 

^ The child was called after her aunt Emerentiana, wife of Edward Craven, 
of Walton. Emerentiana was a favourite family name. One of that name be- 
came the wife of James Foster, of Chamock Richard, tanner, and was mother 
of James Foster, bom Feb. 14, 1746-7, who became an alumnus of Douay 
College in 1771. The surname was and is variously spelt — Heys and Hayes. 
The family settled at Wheelton and Whittle-le-Woods, and were connected 
with the Heatleys, from whom they derived property. Some of them were at 
Sedgley Park, Lisbon, Stonyhurst, Ampleforth, etc. In the middle of last 
centiory Nicholas Hayes was in partaership with his son-in-law, John Craven, of 
Westwood House, Clayton Green, as a grocer in Friargate, Preston, under the 
style of Hayes and Craven. He was the father of Fr. James, S.J. ; of William, 
founder of the firm of Hayes and Finch, Ltd. ; and of Nicholas, of Dalton 
Lodge. Whittle-le-Woods, three of whose sons joined the community at 
Ampleforth, Dom Wilfrid IBemard, bom 1871, author of the Via Vitta 0/ 
St. Benedict {Cath. Who's Who, 1920), Dom Austin Benedict, and Dom Vincent 
Leo Hayes, O.S.B. Henry Heys, of Dalton Lodge, went to Sedgley in 1805. 
John Heys, of Gorse Hall, WTiittle-le-Woods, died May 31, 1849, aged 55, and 
his widow Elizabeth Oct. 8, 1853, aged 34.

sj: From the " Records of the Catholic Brethren, or First CathoUc Charitable 
Society of Preston," it appears that the Society on April 13, 1783, subscribed 
£1 li. towards sending John Wearden's son abroad to college. This was Dom 
John Vincent Wearden, O.S.B., bom at Walton-le-Dale in 1769, who went to 
Lambspring where he was professed in 1787, and thence came as assistant to 
Dom Bernard Anselm Bradshaw, O.S.B., at Warrington, whom he succeeded 
in 1799. He died there of fever July 10, 1801, and was buried in Warrington 
old parish church.

Notes of the Rosary Confraternity (p. 128). 

When Mr. Joseph Gillow, our lamented Hon. Recorder, found him- 
self obliged to abandon annotating the Brindle registers, he sent word 
by Mrs. Gillow that the English branch of the Confraternity of the 
Rosary was originally established at St. Gregory's, Douai, and after- 
wards set up in London by Dom Arthur An.selm Crowther, O.S.B., and 
Dom Thomas Vincent Faustus Sadler, O.S.B. (Diet. Engl. Caths. i, 
603-5, ^■nd V, 463-6) ; that the Sodality Book is now at Downside Abbey ; 
and that he had a copy of the sodales admitted at Douai. 

It may be well to remind readers that the Very Rev. Bede Jarrett, 
Provincied, O.P., supplied a collection of lists of members of the Con- 
fraternity, which was printed in our Volume xiv, 204-236. Some of 
the names in this Volume appear more correctly, with more personal 
particulars, so that collation may well be made. 

For instance, whilst in xiv, 220, we find " Laurence Maska " and 
" Elizabeth Maska." Here (p. 128) they appear as,— Lawrence and 
Elizabeth Myerscough of Myerscough, a married couple. This is an 
extreme case of mis-spelling, which can only have been conveyed by 
word of mouth to the headquarters of the Confraternity, the Dominican 
Superior, who authorised others to enroll members as sodales. — j.s.h. 



No. II. 

THE CATHOLIC REGISTERS OF ST. MARY'S, 
SAMLESBURY, LANCASHIRE, 1753-1837. 

HISTORICAL NOTES BY DOM JOSEPH EDWARD SMITH, O.S.B. 

Samlesbury, a rural township within the Parish of Blackburn, lies 
in Lower Ribblesdale, and extends from that river (which bounds it 
to the west, and also to the north for some distance) over undulating 
ground into the valley of the Darwen and upwards as far as Arley Brook 
in Woodford Park, a distance of three miles. From that point the eastern 
boundary extends over the slope of Hoolster Hill, the highest ground in 
the township, to the village of Mellor Brook. To the south the river 
Darwen and its tributary, the Beasting Brook, form the boundary 
until the hundred of Leyland is touched. Samlesbury covers an area 
of 4,379 acres. Needless to say, the Mission of this name, with whose 
history we are now concerned, must not be regarded as confined within 
such nicely defined boundaries as the above, which are civil and of com- 
paratively modern date. 

In the second half of the twelfth century, Gospatric, lord of Samles- 
bury, built a chapel dedicated to St. Leonard for the use of his depen- 
dents, on the site occupied to this day by what has now become the 
parish church, though it is no longer Catholic. A mere chapel-of- 
ease to Lawe (Walton), at that time a dependent of Blackburn, 
St. Leonard's had no burial ground of its own till some time 
between 1185-1191, when Gospatric induced two Irish bishops, 
his guests of the moment, to consecrate a cemetery for him, with 
the consent indeed of Henry, rector of Blackburn, but unknown 
to the Bishop of Lichfield in whose diocese the parish was then 
situated. Hugh de Nonant,* the local Ordinary, resenting this in- 
vasion of his rights, declared the consecration null ; but, having had the 
local difficulties represented to him, he eventually gave way and allowed 
burial there {Whalley Coucher, Chet. Soc, i, 90). In 1238 John de Lacy 
made a grant (ib. 74), confirmed by the Bislaop of Lichfield in 1239 and 
again in 1267 {ib. 70), conveying Samlesbury chapel together with the 
rectory of Blackburn, to Stanlaw Abbey, and after the removal of the 
Stanlaw community to Whalley in 1296 it continued to be served by the 
Cistercians until the dissolution of that Abbey in 1537. Traces of the 
monks may, perhaps, be discerned in "Monk's Lane," "pack and 
Prime (divine office) road" or "Egg (abstinence) road," by all of 
which names the lower lane from Samlesbury towards Whalley was 
still known in 1875, and which suggest the early stage of the return 
journey to the monastery after a " supply " at Samlesbury. 

The history of religion at Samlesbury throughout the whole of this 
jjeriod is so intimately bound up with that of the lords of the manor, 
that some slight sketch of the ruling families must now be given. 

Sir William de Samlesbury, grandson of Gospatric, had issue by his 
wife Avine, daughter and heir of William de Notton, three daughters, 

5|c Consecrated Bishop of Lichfield and Coventry in 1186, died March 27, 
1 199. 



REGISTERS OF SAMLESBURY 307 

co-heirs: Cicely, Margery, and Elizabeth. Margery, though twice 
married, had no children, so that after her death, July 1267, the manor 
was divided between her two sisters. 

Elizabeth married Robert de Holand, son and heir of Thurstan de 
Holand, and her moiet>' of the manor passed, like the other estates of 
the family, to the Lovels and was forfeited by Francis Viscount Lovel 
upon his attainder in 1485 after the battle of Bosworth Field. On 
25 Feb. 1489 it was granted by Henry VII to Thomas, ist Earl of Derby. 
This moiety would seem to have included the western portion of Samles- 
bury together with St. Leonard's chapel, which had been raided by the 
Scots in 1322, who included in their boot}'^ " 2 vestments from the chapel, 
a chalice, missal and psalter " {Tnq. ad q. d., Edw. II, No. 62; Cal. Close, 
1323-7, p. 207). In 1464 the tithes of St. Leonard's had been granted 
to Whalley, and Richard Holden, who was Abbot 1471-80, found it 
necessary to insist upon his rights in this respect (Croston, Satnlesbury 
Old Hall, 1871). After the Suppression the King's surveyor of Whalley 
Abbey estates in 1538 valued " the chappell of Samlesbury with ye 
tyeth belonging to ye same by ye year " at ;^i2 8s. id. Queen Mary's 
commissioners in 1553 found, surviving the spoliation under Edward VI, 
"one little bell, weighing fourscore pounds," and computed its value 
at 10 shillings. It is probably this which Hewitson saw in 1871, hung in 
a grated box at the west end of the church and known by the country 
people as " the Catholic bell " {Our Country Churches and Chapels, p. 123). 
Following the suppression of Catholic worship in 1537, St. Leonard's 
fell into disuse and decay, so much so that the lord of the manor became 
concerned for its safety and issued the following appeal: " 13 May, 
1558, Edward [3rd] Earl of Derby, to al his louing frendes. As I am 
crediblie informed the church at Sambery is in ruine and endangeringe 
people that resort to heare God's worde, I have thought good to move 
my louing frendes to help with ther charity towards the re-edifjnng 
therof " {Notitia Cesir., Chet. See, ii, 293«). The restoration of the 
chapel, including the addition of two aisles and an elevation of the nave, 
would seem to have been the result of this appeal, and thenceforward it 
has secured State support as part of the "Church by law established." 
The font, which remains to this day, probably dates back to Gospatric's 
original foundation. In July, 1600, William, Earl of Derby, passed his 
half of the manor of Samlesbury by fine to trustees, by whom it was 
conveyed about 1606 to Thomas Walmsley, of Dunkenhalgh, Knt., 
Justice of the Common Pleas. From him it descended with the other 
family estates until in 1852 it was left to the father of its present owner, 
Oswald Henry Turville-Petre, Esq. 

Having thus traced the descent of the one moiety, let us revert to 
the partition of the manor in order to follow the vicissitudes of Catholic- 
ism at Samlesbury through the penal times, so closely linked with the 
history of the other moiety, which fell to — 

Cicely, daughter and coheiress with her sister Elizabeth de Holand, 
of Sir William de Samlesbury, grandson of Gospatric. By her mar- 
riage (before 13 Apr. 1259) with John Deuyas (D'Ewas, D'Evyas), son 
of Nicholas Deuyas by his wife Alice, daughter of Jordan Foliot, her 
portion of the Samlesbury manor, together with estates in Riseholme, 
CO. Lincoln, eventually descended to her granddaughter and sole heiress, 
Alice, and to her issue by Gilbert, son and heir of Gilbert de Sotheworth, 
lord of Sotheworth and Croft, in Win wick parish, to whom she had been 
married before 8 July 1325. Thus commenced the historic connection 
of the Southworth family with Samlesburv, fully dealt with by Croston 
in his Samlesbury Old Hall (London, Chiswick Press, 1871). To do more 



308 REGISTERS OF SAMLESBURY 

than trace their influence on the Mission would be beyond the scope of 
the present article. 

Sir Thomas de Southworth, grandson of Sir Gilbert and Alice 
Deuyas, succeeded, in 1416 at the age of 23, to his father. Sir John, 
who had married Margaret, daughter of Sir Richard de Hoghton, Knt. 
He married Johan, daughter of Sir John de Bothe of Barton, and held 
the family estates till his death Apr. 27, 1432. A licence was granted 
about 1420 by the Bishop of Lichfield to Sir Thomas and Johan his wife, 
to have mass celebrated in their mansions of " Sothelworth and Samles- 
bury " {Lib. ix, fol. 3, Cur. Lichf.). 

The Old Hall, Sanilesbury, had been rebuilt and used as manor house 
by his grandfather, Sir Gilbert, who was living in 1363, and this grant 
of a private oratory may account in some measure for the decline of the 
neighbouring chapel of St. Leonard, referred to above. His son Gilbert 
was at Agincourt, 1415; and Sir John Southworth, great-grandson and 
eventual heir of Sir Thomas and Johan, was at Flodden Field, May 1513, 
and, dying in 1517, the estates passed to his son Thomas, by his wife 
Helen, daughter of Sir Richard Langton, baron of Newton. Thomas was 
knighted in 1523, restored the west wing of the Old Hall in 1532, and 
rebuilt the south part in 1545. He served as Sheriff of Lancaster 
1541-2, and, dying 13 Jan. 1546, was succeeded by his son John, the 
child of his second wife Margery, daughter of Thomas Butler (or Boteler) 
of Bewsey, Knt. 

This Sir John Southworth, who was 20 years old at his father's 
death, was perhaps the most noteworthy scion of this distinguished 
family. He married, 23 July 1547, at St. Leonard's, co. Middlesex, Mary 
daughter of Sir Richard Assheton of Middleton, Knt., and had issue 
sons: Thomas; Richard; Michael; Gilbert, a lawyer of some standing; 
Leonard ; John and Christopher — ^the two latter of whom were priests 
{C.R.S. vi, 158); and daughters: Anne, wife of Robert Singleton, 

gent.; Jane, married Stanley; Mary, wife of George Talbot; 

and Margaret, wife of Bartholomew Hesketh, gent. The father, John 
Southworth, received knighthood in Scotland in 1547, and in 1557 so 
distinguished himself in military service in the north that a second hun- 
dred men was added to his command. He was High Sheriff of the county 
in 1562 after the accession of Elizabeth, but, if his patriotism was above 
suspicion, he proved himself no less staunch a champion of the ancient 
faith, and consequently fell foul of the civil authorities. On i Nov. 
1568 William Downham, Bishop of Chester, reported Sir John to Secre- 
tary Cecil " for not repairing to Church, nor receiving the sacrament, 
and for speaking against the Book of Common Prayer." He had also 
refused to sign a form of submission, promising inter alia to " obey all 
Her Majesty's Authority in all matters of Religion and Orders Ecclesias- 
tical " In Feb. 1575-6 the Bishop of Chester reported to the 

Privy Council as " obstinate recusants in the Blagburne Parish 

John Sothworth, knight and ladie his wife. Thomas Sothworth, his 
Sonne and heir. John Sothworth, gent, sonne to John Sothworth, Kt. 
Ann Sothworth, his daughter; Dorothie Sothworth, his sister." In 
1577 Sir John, his wife and his heir are again repori:ed " recusant " 
(C.R.S. xxii, 69), and in 1581 this steadfast confessor was arrested and 
committed to the New Fleet, Manchester, for harbouring at Samlesbury 
the Ven, Edmund Campion, S.J. In this prison he remained with a 
certain amount of liberty to take exercise until 1584, when he was 
summoned to reside in the metropolis as being less dangerous there than 
in the county where he was " greatly allied and befriended " (Abram, 
History of Blackburn, 77-81). In a report dated 10 Sept. 1586 and cover- 



REGISTERS OF SAMLESBURY 309 

ing the period 1580-6, his son Thomas was reported lor harbouring 
" James Cowper, a seminarie priest at the lodge in Samlesbury Park 
whither many of the family, servants and friends resorted to hear Mass." 
The same document {Harleian MSS., ff. 326 and 33) mentions " one 
Duckson, an old priest," as resident in Samlesbury, and that " at the 

house of James Sherples was a Masse done on CandlemcLS day 

by one Harry Duckesson, aJias Dueson "; also that " at the Lodge in 
Samlesburie Park, there be masses daily and Seminaries [seminarists] 
diverse resort thither, as James Cowpe, Harrisson,* Bell, and such 
like." 

This would be James Bell, bom ca. 1524 at Warrington, Lanes., 
who was educated at Oxford and ordained priest during the reign of 
Queen Mary. A severe illness coupled with the remonstrances of a 
Catholic matron were the means under God of reclaiming him in 1581 
from apostacy, when, after some months devoted to penitential exer- 
cises, he resumed his priestly functions, labouring for souls with exemp- 
lary diligence for the space of about two years. On 17 Jan. 1584 he was 
apprehended, very probably in the act of saying mass, and brought be- 
fore the Earl of Derby, to whom he acknowledged himself to be a priest, 
and confessed his reconciliation to the Catholic Church after having for 
a long time gone astray. At the Manchester Sessions, held 22 and 23 
of the same month, he was condemned for saying mass in Golborn, 
near Wigan. From Salford gaol he was removed to Lancaster to 
be tried at the Lent Assizes, and during the journey, a distance of 60 
miles by road, his arms were tied behind him and his legs under the 
horse's belly. 

He was arraigned, together with others, under the Act of Supremacy, 
and at his trial displayed great courage and resolution, boldly professing 
that he had been reconciled to the Church and that he did not acknow- 
ledge the Queen's ecclesiastical supremacy, but that of the Pope. Upon 
hearing the sentence of death Fr. Bell evinced great satisfaction, and, 
looking at the Judge, said: " I beg your Lordship would add to the 
sentence that my lips and the tips of my fingers may be cut off, for hav- 
ing sworn and subscribed to the articles of heretics, contrary to my 
conscience and to God's truth." He spent the following night in 
prayer and meditation, and sufiered on the ensuing day, 20 Apr. 1584, 
not only with constancy, but with great joy, being then 60 years of age 
(Gillow, Did. Biog. i, 173-4). 

Sir John Southworth died 3 Nov. 1595, leaving his son Thomas suc- 
cessor to the family estates, then more or less encumbered as the result 
of many years of bitter persecution. In 1605, Thomas settled the 
Lower HaU, Samlesbury, probably then but recently erected, on his son 
John, who married Jane, natural daughter of Sir Richard Shireburn 
of Stonyhurst, Knt. John predeceased his father, leaving as heir his 
son Thomas, who succeeded to the Old Hall in 1597, whilst his mother, 
who would appear, from the affair of the " Samlesbury witches " tried 
at Lancaster, 1612 (Abram, History of Blackburn, 88-95), "to have turned 
Protestant, resided at the Lower Hall which she had for jointure during 
her lifetime. To a junior branch of this family doubtless belonged the 
Ven. John Southworth, priest, bom 1592. As a prisoner in Lancaster 
Castle he absolved Ven. Edmund Arrowsmith, S.J,, on his way to mar- 
tyrdom there 28 Aug. 1628, and after long detention in various gaols, 
himself won the martyr's crown at Tyburn 28 June 1654 [C.R.S. vi, 158). 
In 1668 there were 30 recusants at Samlesbury {C.R.S. ib.), including 

Hf Probably Fr. James Harrison — cf. C.R.S. v, 162-5. 



310 REGISTERS OF SAMLESBURY 

Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Langton of Low, wife of the John 
Southworth who had succeeded to the estates in 1641 owing to the ex- 
tinction of his elder brother Thomas' line of succession. This Thomas, 
who died in 1623, had sold the Lower Hall to Thomas Walmesley of 
Dunkenhalgh, Knt., whose father had acquired the Earl of Derby's 
moiety of the manor some years earlier, as related above. 

John would appear to have been a man of no very strong convictions, 
religious or political. The absence of his name from the recusant rolls 
of 1668, where that of his wife appears, may indicate compliance with 
the custom, far too common in those evil days, whereby the husband 
conformed occasionally with the statutory worship in order to escape 
conviction for recusancy and the consequent fines and disabilities, 
trusting to a deathbed repentance. Be that as it may, his lack of 
political zeal during the Commonwealth regime involved him in further 
difficulties, and he only avoided sequestration of his estates by paying a 
fine of ^359 {Vict. Hist, of Lanes, vi, 301). Dying early in 1676 he was 
succeeded by his third but eldest surviving son Edward, who on 10 Mar. 
1679 finally sold the manor, together with the Old Hall, to Thomas 
Bradyll of Portfield, Brockhall and Conishead Priory, Esq., for ;^3,i5o. 
He died at Balderston in 1694. The subsequent history of the South- 
worth family will be found above in the note on p. 8g. 

The ancient chapel, first licensed for service about 1620, is now the 
morning room and lies in the north-east wing of this historic mansion. 
In former days its altitude equalled that of the building itself. It is 
lighted by three windows, that in the south side being Gothic in design 
and of four lights with tracery heads, cinquef oiled and subarcuated; 
it is believed to have been transported hither from Our Lady's chapel, 
Whalley Abbey, at the Dissolution (Abram, 664). An ancient piscina 
of uncertain date still bears witness to the former character and purpose 
of this apartment. The names of priests known to have found shelter 
at the Old Hall have been given above. 

The Lower Hall, Samlesbury, — 

overlooking the Ribble, and no\y little more than a ruin, is situated 
at a distance of about three-quarters of a mile to the north- 
cast of St. Leonard's Chapel. As has already been said, it was 
sold about 1620 by Thomas Southworth, great-grandson of that 
stout confessor. Sir John Southworth, to Thomas Walmesley, of 
Dunkenhalgh, Knt., Justice of the Court of Common Pleas. His wife 
Juliana in 1655 gave a property. Mount Grace, at Osmotherley, near 
Northallerton, co. York, to the Franciscans as a missionary residence 
(Oliver, Coll., p. 559), and it would seem to have been through these 
same Walmesleys that St. Chad's chapel in the rear of the Lower Hall 
was also entrusted to the sons of St. Francis, who continued to serve 
the mission throughout the troubled penal times until early in 1817, 
when a new church, dedicated to St. Mary, was built, half-a-mile from 
and overlooking St. Leonard's, to replace the now dilapidated chapel 
at the Lower Hall. St. Mary's was opened in 1818 under the care of 
Fr. John Bell, the first Secular rector of Samlesbury, and since that date 
the mission has been served by the Secular Clergy of the diocese of Sal- 
ford, as noted below. 

During penal days, when it was high treason to be or to harbour a 
priest, circumstances rendered imperative a secrecy, as perfect as possible 
then, and so almost impenetrable how; and forbade, moreover, any- 
thing like a permanent address for either chapel or priest. Lower Hall, 
from its proximity to the river, was conveniently situated as a base for 



REGISTERS OF SAMLESBURY 311 

priests, and traces of the altar, the hiding-place and the look-out holes 
in the vestry were still discernible in 1871. 

Brockholes also, across the water, was similarly equipped, and 
tradition has it that on one occasion the hunted priest swam the Kibble 
in his vestments. Bessa Wood, too, is known to have provided cover 
for the celebration of the holy sacrifice, probably about 1745; and at 
Balderstone, two miles to the east of Lower Hall, may still be seen 
what is known as the " Priest's Well." 

But scanty information is available concerning the early chaplains 
at the Lower Hall. Fr. Michael Howarden, O.S.F., commissioned by 
his Chapter held at Douai, 28 Sept. 1689, to preach and hear con- 
fessions, was here in 1690, and Bishop James Smith, writing in 
1703, refers to him as being still its incumbent. A letter written 
by Rev. John Holme, the Protestant vicar of Blackburn under 
date 3 Nov. 1709, is interesting for the light which it throws 
on the state of Catholicism in the district at this time. He reports 
to his Primate the holding of episcopal Visitations of the Lower 
HciU mission by Bishop James Smith in 1704, and again on July 
8, 9, and loth, 1709, which leist day being a Sunday, crowds flocked to 
hear his lordship preach and to receive Confirmation. " ]VIr. Hall, 
my curate at Samlesbury chapel, teUs me that he saw multitudes goe 
that way -past his house, some on foot, some on horseback, most of them 
with little children under their arms The neighbouring Pro- 
testants seemed to take little notice of the matter, it being no novelty 

with them " In conclusion the vicar deplores his inabiUty to 

interfere: " 'tis dangerous meddUng with the papists here, where they 
bear all down by their power and Interest " (Abram, op. cit, 82). In 
the list of non-jurors of 1717* the following names appear from Samles- 
bury: Robert Brindle, James and Mary Turner, Hugh Walmesley, 
Thomas High, Wm, Moulden, Anne Cocker, Anne Hoole, Hugh Heatley, 
and Richard Abbot, of Lower HaU, where Mass was said {cf. note on 
p. 100 supra). Fr. Howarden remained here until he was appointed 
Vicar of Douai in 171 7. Eventually he returned to the mission, this 
time in the south of England, where he died 29 Aug. 1738, " £iet. 73: 
Relig. 57: sacerdos 49: Jub. 7 " (Thaddeus, Taunton MS.). 

From the Brindle Registers {supra, p. 98) we learn that Fr. Richard 
Collingridge, O.S.F. (probably of the same family as R.R. Peter Ber- 
nardine Collingridge, "f O.S.F., V.A.-W.D.), died at Lower Hall 25 Feb. 
1732; and also that at a Confirmation held by Bp. Edward Dicconson, 
V.A.-N.D., at Brindle in June, 1749, the Samlesbury candidates were 
presented by Fr. William Tootell, O.S.F. Probably " William " repre- 
sents the baptismal name of Fr. John Evangelist Tootell, who died at 
Douai in 13 Dec. 1758, " aet. 81: relig. 62: seic. 56" {Taunton MS.). 
The death of Fr. Charles Tootell, the only other Franciscan of that name 
in those times, is recorded in the Anniversary lists as occurring on 
2 Oct. 1771 {cf. infra, p. 335). 

From 4 Jan. 1753, the commencement of the existing registers, 
we are able to reconstruct fairly accurately the series of pastors who 
compiled them. From that date until 21 Jan. 1770 all the entries are 
in the hand^^-riting of Fr. Robert Painter, O.S.F., who came to Lower 
HaU in 1753 from the neighbouring Franciscan mission of White Hill, 
in Goosnargh, which had been entrusted to his charge 15 Oct. 1753 
{cf note, p. 139 supra). During his rectorship of nearly sixteen years

the number of Easter confessions rose from 93 to 234, and he presented 
for confirmation at Brindle batches of 27, 50, and again 50 candidates 
in 1755, 1760, and 1766 respectively {supra, p. 139), The registers re- 
veal the zealous missionary as well as the practical man of method, 
while tradition has it that he employed his leisure in making weather- 
glasses which he gave to his friends. The Samlesbury anniversary table 
places his death on the 8th, but the Brindle register on the loth of 
March, 1770. 

Of his successor, Fr. Alexius Whalley, O.S.F,, little is known save 
that for fifteen years he maintained Fr. Painter's good traditions until 
his removal, which occurred, as he had so confidently expected,* shortly 
before Christmas, 1785. He died at Osmotherley 21 July 181 1 {C.R.S. 
xii. III). 

From 13 Oct. 1785 till 14 Oct. 1792, Fr. Richard Angelus Ravenhill, 
O.S.F., was in charge of the mission. He died 22 Oct. 1792, and, like 
several of his successors, his remains were interred in the Samlesbury 
Protestant church, where the Southworth and Gregson families still 
retained pew rights. 

Fr. Edward Andrew Weetman, O.S.F., the next pastor, was born at 
Rowington, co. Warwick, on 2 May 1765, and was sent from St. Bona- 
venture's Friary, Douai, to Lower Hall as his first mission early in 1793. 
He left five years later, and was successively employed at Wooton- 
Wawen, co. Warwick; Perthyre, co. Monmouth; and Britwell, Oxon. 
He filled at different times the responsible offices of Guardian of Douai, 
President of Hereford and Definitor of the Province, and in 18 12 was 
transferred to Taunton Lodge where "for 31 years, his career was 
marked with every virtue, especially for a quiet meek spirit, so rich in 
the sight of God. This beloved of God and man calmly expired on 
Sunday, 15 Jan. 1843, and was buried in the conventual cemetery " 
(Oliver, Coll., p. 433). 

Meanwhile, his place at Samlesbury had been taken by Fr. William 
Ignatius Casemore, O.S.F., who was bom at Reading 13 Sept. 1751, and 
after making his first studies amongst the Jesuits, finally embraced the 
Rule of St. Francis. He served Lower Hall from July 1798 till Nov. 
1802, with the exception of a short interval in the autumn of 1801. 
In Jan. 1805 he was sent by Bishop Sharrock, V.A.-W.D., to whom he 
had offered his services, to Falmouth as its first incumbent. Here he 
continued for 13 J years, when declining health occasioned his retire- 
ment to the Convent of Poor Clares at Coxside, Plymouth, where he 
died 29 Sept. 1824, and was buried in their cemetery (Oliver, Coll., p.261). 
In the autumn of 1801 the Lower Hall mission was the scene of the 
last labours of another distinguished Franciscan, Fr. William Leo 
Pilling, younger brother of John Bonaventure Pilling, O.S.F. (who died 
at Osmotherley, Yorks., 12 Jan. 1800, aet. 66: rel. 49). Born in Lanca- 
shire in 1 74 1, William took the habit at Douai, where he taught philo- 
sophy 1770-6, and theology 1776-82. He was ordained priest in 1773. 
A well-read scholar, a clear headed theologian and an exemplary mis- 
sionary, he was successively entrusted with the responsible ofi&ces of 
Guardian of Canterbury in 1784, President of Hereford 1785-7, Guardian 
of Oxford, Definitor and Procurator of the Province, and after presiding 
over the College conducted by his Order at Edgbaston, finally retired 
in 1 80 1 to Lower Hall. At an age when most men look to enjoy a well- 
earned leisure, this indefatigable missionary is found teaching in the 
day school attached to the mission, until he fell the victim of an apo-

plectic stroke, aud departed to his reward on the 4tli of Dec. iSoi, iii 
the 6oth year of his age. 

Of Fr. John Waring. O.S.F., who replaced Fr. Casemore in 1802, 
little is known save that he laboured here for the next 13 years till his 
death on i July 1816, when he was buried alongside Fr. Pilling in 
Gregson's or Cowpe's pew in St. Leonard's Church, Sanilesbury. He was 
the last Franciscan to serve this mission, but in Aug. 1816, shortly 
after his death, we find acting as locum tenens, — 

Fr. John Bernardine Davison, O.S.F., from the neighbouring mission 
of Lee House, near Stonyhurst. He was born at Catterick, co. York, 
27 Feb. 1791, and this must have been his first mission. From it lie 
was transferred shortly after and appointed to be chaplain to tlie Poor 
Clares at Plymouth. Here he continued for about four years, until 
in Aug. 1820 he was reinstated at Lee House; and when that mission 
was given up by his Order to the Bishop of the Northern District, he 
retired to Osmotherley, a retreat for superannuated members of his 
Province. Understanding that Rev. Edward Metcalf, the incumbent 
of Newport, required additional aid in the arduous duties of his mission, 
he volunteered and commenced on 14 Oct. 1842 his zealous labours 
which were to bring to a fitting close a life devoted to humble work for 
souls. In a letter dated 2 Feb. 1842, his bishop wTites thus to Dr. 
Oliver: " I am greatly distressed by the death, about 4-30 a.m. yester- 
day, of Fr. John Bernardine Davison, at Newport, at the age of 51. 
He caught typhus fever from visiting the sick, and is gone, I trust, to 
receive the crown of a martyr of charity " (Oliver, Coll., 284). 

In Nov. 1816 we find Dom John Turner. O.S.B., supplying at the 
Lower Hall. He was born at Woolston. Lanes., 3 Aug. 1765. He was 
professed at Douai, 8 Sept. 1786. for St. Edmund's, and ordained at 
the outbreak of the Revolution. 1790. He remained some time in Paris 
after being released from prison, but eventually found his way to the 
English Mission in the North Province. After a year at Croston, 
Lanes., 18 14, he remained at Holme Hall till his retirement in 1843 to 
St. Lawrence's, Amplef orth, where he died July 1 3th in the following year. 

The year 1818 marks a new era in the story of Sanilesbury mission. 
Early in that year the new church, St. Mary's, which reckoned Squire 
(William) Heatley of Brindle amongst its chief benefactors, was opened 
under the care of its first Secular rector, Fr. John Bell. Born at Snaith, 
CO. Yorks., in 1767, he was in his second year's theology at Douai when 
the College was seized by the Revolutionists. Effecting his escape, he 
became in April, 1793. tutor to the sons of John Silvertop of Minster 
Acres. Esq. When the Douai refugees had established themselves at 
Crook Hall, co. Durham, Fr. Bell rejoined them on 7 Nov. 1794. and 
was followed by Henry Silvertop. one of his pupils. He served on the 
College Staff, as Professor of Rhetoric and Poetry besides acting as 
Prefect General, from his ordination 23 Dec. 1794, through the transfer 
of the establishment to Ushaw, 1808. down to 18 17, when he left the 
College and devoted his talents to missionary labours at Samlesbury 
till April 1828, being then removed to Kippax Park. co. Yorks. Even- 
tually he retired to Selby. where he died at the advanced age of 87, 
31 May 1854 (Gillow, Diet. Biog. i). 

Fr. William Carter, the new incumbent, was the son of John Carter 
of Little Poulton Hall, co. Lanes., by his first wife, Elizabeth, daughter 
and coheiress of Henry Atkinson of Poulton. Educated and ordained 
at Ushaw, he succeeded Fr. Bell at Samlesbur>' in April 1828. The 
mission was then nearing its zenith, but after 1834, when Fr. Carter 
registered his Easter confessions at 460, various causes contributed to 



314 REGISTERS OF SAMLESBURY 

its gradual decline. In 1837 Osbaldeston chapel had been opened, 
having for its first rector Rev. J. A. Corless, D.D., whose widowed mother 
became the second wife of the John Carter above mentioned. This 
new mission drew off nearly half the congregation, and by 1847, when 
Fr. Carter was removed to the newly-built church of St. Joseph, Liver- 
pool, the "Paschal penitents" numbered but 286. He died aged 51, 
13 July 1853, on a visit to Samlesbury, and a handsome monument 
has been erected to his memory in St. Mary's churchyard, while his 
remains lie buried before the High Altar of this church which he 
served so long. 

Samlesbury 's next pastor was Fr. William Fayer, born in the Fylde 
in 1802 and educated at Ushaw. He first served Sunnyside, near Bum- 
ley, whence he was moved in 1842 to St. Anthony's, Scotland Road, 
Liverpool. From St. Patrick's, Liverpool, whither he had been trans- 
ferred the next year, he came to Samlesbury on 14 Oct. 1847, and here 
for 28 years he maintained an uphill struggle against a gradual but con- 
stant diminution of his flock, a feature not uncommon in the history of 
country parishes, and a consequence of the concentration of the more 
abundant means of livelihood in the industrial towns. Thrice during 
his rectorship was the Rocher Factory, which provided employment for 
many parishioners, burnt down, and in 1873 he records great mortality 
amongst the children from malignant scarlet fever. The decline, 
however, was, as Fr. Fayer's notes show, one in " temporals," not in 
" spirituals." In 1868 when his flock was reduced to 139, only two 
were " out of the church," and in 1872 but three out of 123, and these 
were strangers. In 1874 the total population of the parish, which in 
1821 had been 1,979, had fallen to 600, of whom 116 were Catholic. 
In Jan. 1875 Fr. Fayer retired to Kirkham where he died 17 Sept. 1883, 
aged 81. Hewitson, writing in 1872, has left a pleasing and interesting 
account of the impressions he received on a visit to Fr. Fayer: " He 
looks hale, homely, plump and fatherly ; is kindly, careful, exact in his 
habits, and plain in speech ; has a regard for antiquities — for old stones 
and old coins, and anjrthing of a genealogical or historical character; 
for farming, physic, and Roman bricks; for music, cow draughts and 
divinity; is a very sociable gentleman and full of anecdote." Indeed 
it is to this bent of the good priest for research, which led him to analyse 
the mission registers and to record his findings and surmises in pencil 
jottings therein, that the present writer is indebted for much that has 
greatly facilitated tlae preparation of this sketch. Hewitson, usually 
more lavish of blame than praise, concludes thus: " He is a cheerful 
and unassuming priest — earnest in his duties, lively in his leisure mo- 
ments, and generous towards the poor and the distressed. The school 
connected with the mission is attended by about 25 children on week- 
days, and 50 on Sundays, and the bulk of the scholars know music, 
whilst all of them can sing ! " {Country Churches and Chapels, p. 127). 

A new school at Sowerbutts Green, Samlesbury, erected by the sub- 
scriptions of the local Catholics (prominent amongst whom was Mr. 
Robert Hubberstey, who advanced the necessary funds as a loan without 
interest and superintended the building operations), was opened in 1875, 
and on Sept. i of that year Fr. Richard Gerrard took over the rectorship 
of the mission. He served St. Mary's, Mulberry Street, Manchester, 
from 1863 until 1870, when he was removed to Ashton-under-Lyne. 
Next year he is found at Radcliffe, near Bury, whence he came to 
Samlesbury as mentioned above. He succeeded, despite hard times 
and a dwindling population, in freeing the new school from debt before 
leaving Salmesbury, 30 June 1901. He died at Blackburn 26 Dec. 1901. 



REGISTERS OF SAMLESBURY 315 

Since July 190 1 Samlesbury has been under the care of its present 
Parish Piiest, R.R. Mgr. William Hill, who was educated at Ushaw 
and ordained at Salford Cathedral 9 Sept. 1877. After two years at 
St. Bede's, Manchester, he was appointed Secretary to the Bishop of 
Salford, a post which he retained for some 22 years, first under Bishop 
(afterwards Cardinal) Vaughan, and then under his successor Bishop 
Bilsborrow, until he replaced Fr. Gerrard at Samlesbury, July ist 1901. 
In recognition of his valuable services he was appointed in 1897 Privy 
Chamberlain to the Pope, and in 1906 Domestic Prelate to His Holiness. 

Among Samlesbury 's treasured relics, now preserved in the museum 
at St. Bede's, Manchester, are an ancient pyx of silver gilt, beautifully 
engraved, and bearing this, amongst other inscriptions: " For the use 
of the Rev. Father A. from the gift of S.B. 1689 "; and a chasuble, 
probably some 600 years old, richly worked in gold, silver, silk and 
velvet. — j.E.s.
