" Bis dat qui cito dat." 

The Colonies form such an important portion of our Empire that a 
^history of the leading families, and their connection with the mother 

country, cannot fail to be of interest. 
^*< The preparation of this work has already been the means of bringing 
\ together kinsfolk from both sides of the globe, and I trust that the result 
of my labours may still further tend to promote that family love and 
unity which has always been the characteristic trait of our race. 
5' I have received, from every one of my correspondents, unvarying 
4 politeness and attention — from many, most important assistance — and to 
1 I now beg to return my best and sincerest acknowledgments. 
Many imperfections will be apparent, I fear, to the critic of these 
pages, but I may be permitted to say that the popularity of "Burke's 
Landed Gentry " was not lessened by the fact that faults were numerous 
in the first edition. The publication of this volume, by inviting public 
criticism, is the only way to draw forth more detailed and correct informa- 
tion on the subject, and I cordially ask all persons interested to put 
themselves into direct communication with me, so that any points they 
may raise could be dealt with in a subsequent edition. I need not say 
that it will afford me much pleasure to reply to any questions affecting 
the various memoirs. 

THE EDITOIL

Gentry," at Hakrison and Sons', 59, Pall Mall (S.W.), London.

ILmtagE. 



The ancestors of this family settled at 
Kington, Thornbury, co. Gloucester, Eng- 
land, a copyhold belonging to the Duie of 
Buckingham. The family, of -which there 
are still many branches existing, is one of the 
oldest in Gloucestershire, and has now been 
seated at Kington House for nearly five 
centuries. 

The Suffolk family of Thurston, like the 
Kentish line, is now extinct, and it is believed 
that these, the Thurstons, of Gloucestershire, 
are the only direct descendants of John 
Turstin, the branches of whose family in 
COS. Norfolk, Suffolk, and Kent called them- 
selves Turstin, Thurston, and Thruston, and 
in the western counties assumed the name of 



E.ICHAED TuBSTiN, lord of the manor of 
Chemingnarde, near Thornbury, Witelai Hun- 
dred, CO. Gloucester, a.d. 1399, came out of 
the south of Norfolk, where the family was 
numerous. He claimed a common origin 
with the Bassets, and acquired Chemingnarde 
from William and Maud Stafford. On his 
death, in 1413, the family appears to have 
broken up and to have found new homes at 
Wootton-under-Edge, Thornbury, and other 
places. His great grandson, 

EoBEET Thubstin, of Kington House, 
Thornbury, co. Gloucester, d. 1484, and was

HiiuagE. 



The paternal ancestors of the Hon. Sir W. 
J. ClAEKE, Bart, of Rupertswood, in Victoria, 
were from a very early period resident in the 
neighbourhood of Wells, co. Somerset, 
England. They were at first settled in the- 
manor of Greinton, and subsequently at 
Middlezoy and Weston Zoyland in that 
vicinity. The descent of Sir William is 
deduced step by step from one of the name 
resident at Grreinton in the time of Queen 
Elizabeth. His widow, Joane, was a 
benefactress as well of her own church at 
Greinton as of the neighbouring cathedral of 
Wells, as shown by her will, dated 30th

ILmtage. 



Tlie Davenports descend from Ormus de 
Davenport, living in the time of the Conquest. 

This family was seated at Great Wigston, 
in Leicestershire, in the 16th century, where 
they resided at the Moated House, which was 
standing till abont 1745, the site being now 
the property of Sir Samuel Davenport's 
brother, Mr. Henry Devereux Davenport. 
There is a tradition in the family that this 
property was bought for a younger son of the 
Davynports of Bramhall, Cheshire, in the 
16th century. In that century (1553) Thomas 
Davynporte was mayor of Leicester. He en- 
tertained Makt Queen of Scots in Leicester 
Castle. His son purchased lands at Q-reat 
Wigston, in the parish registers of which 
place entries occur relating to the family 
from the commencement of the registers in 
1569. Numerous monumental tablets exist 
in the parish church of Grreat Wigston, of 
which some members of the family were vicars.

Hineage. 



This family is believed to be identical with 
that of Bourchier. Mr. Bowker's ancestor, 
according to tradition, having lost all his 
estates, through adherence to the Pretender, 
Charles Stuaet, was compelled to change 
Ills name from Bourchier to Bowker. 

Tlie Anglo-Norman family of Bourchier is 
of great antiquity. They are frequently men- 
tioned in English history. One of the family 



is famous as having been the patron of Caxton, 
the printer, and an Archbishop Bourchier, 
who was killed at the battle of Barnet, is in- 
terred at Westminster Abbey. 

Thomas Bowkeb, Esq., left co. Westmore- 
land to settle in Northumberland. He was 
father of several children, amongst whom were 
Benjamin and Miles ; the latter gentleman.

The family of Tilley was originally seated 
in Devonshire, England. Two of the name 
came to America in the " Mayflower," and it 
is supposed that Sir S. L. Tilley is a descend- 
ant of one of these. It can, however, be 
affirmed with certainty that his ancestors

ILt'neage. 



According to tradition the ancestors of the 
Aberdeenshire family of Gill came originally 
from Cumberland (where, at a very early 
period, they owned lands, amongst others the 
bai'ony of G-illsland) into Scotland. Certain 
it is that the surname is of great antiquity in 
both countries. 

In 1296, Patrick del Gryle is amongst the 
gentlemen of Peeblesshire who sign the Rag- 
man Koll (see " Chambers' Peeblesshire," p. 
65). This prefix " del " was not uncommon 
at that period. The above Patrick Gill, as 
well as some others of the surname, appear 
in various of the Scotch counties as people of 
some position. 

It ha3 been the constant family tradition 
that tbis family is directly descended from a 
John Gill, wlio was Provost of Perth early in 
the 15th century. The various records of 
Perth show that the family had then been 
very floru-ishing, and besides owning the lands 
of Haltoun and Torsopy, in the county of 
Perth (John Gill, lord of Torsopy, appears 
as witness to a charter, signed at Edin- 
burgh, 11th February, 1366), held such 
positions of trust and distinction as proved 
them lo be worthy men. 

John Gill, of Haltoun, was burgess, baillie, 
and afterwards, 1403, provost of Perth. 
Another John Gill, burgess of Perth (prob- 
ably father of the former) is mentioned fre- 
quently in the town records from 1328 
downwards. John Gill, burgess of Perth, 
and M.P. for that town, 1364, 1367, 1369 
and 1373, together with the old family of the 
Mercers, of Aldie, takes a prominent part, at 
this pei-iod, in the management of public 
affairs, and in 1406 — 7 proceeds to Paris with 
Sir Walter Stewart of Ralston, and others, 
to renew the league between Scotland and 
France. He is mentioned as deceased be- 
tween 10th June, 1-118, and 27th July, 1420. 
In 1410, John Gill (probably a son of the 
last-mentioned John Gill) was one of the 
three first lecturers on philosophy and logic in 
St. Andrew's University, under bishop Henry 
Wardlaw, the pious founder of that seat of 
learning. The family, much reduced in cir- 
cumstances, appear in the records of Perth- 
shire as late as 1648. 

The Aberdeenshire branch are believed to 
iiave left Perthshire, and to have settled in 



Aberdeenshire, in the early half of the 16th 
century. Most probably they had done so 
to escape some of the constant feuds only too 
common at that period, but owing to the 
very defective state of the registers and re- 
cords generally (the Aberdeen and Banff 
wills were unfortunately nearly all destroyed 
by &re previous to 1721), the connection of 
this family with their more southern jjro- 
genitors cannot well be traced. 

Alexanbeb Gill, b. about 1550, who 
settled at Auchlyne, in the parish of Aberdour, 
in the Buchan district of Aberdeenshire, 
m. Barbara Findlay, and was dead before 18th 
March, 1618. Their son, 

RoBEBT Gill, of Auchlyne, appears as 
living there in 1618 and 1655, m. and had 
two sons, 

I. George, 

II. Patrick, of Ailhouseburne, co. Banff, 
m. and had a daughter, Issobell, bap- 
tised 2nd April, 1653. 

The elder son, 

George Gill, who removed to Warie- 
lip, in the adjoining parish of Boyndie, 
and county of Banff, where, according to a 
curious old raised-lettered tombstone, he 
"departed this lyf" 3rd April, 1689, m. 
M. C. (initials on tombstone ; Cumming may 
have been the maiden name of Mrs. Gill, as 
a family of this surname are interred in an 
adjoining grave). Many members of the 
Gill family were interred at Boyndie, 
although there are only two tombstones there. 
Issue, two sons, 

I. Alexander. 

II. Patrick or Peter, b. about 1680, re- 
sident for many years at Fingask,

family, who all d. young, with the 
exception of one daughter, Barbara, 
m. 1st, Capt. Alexander Catto ; and 
2ndly, Alexander Walker, shipmaster, 
of Fraserburgh. Patrick Gill m. 
2ndly, Barbara Sim, but by her had 
no issue. By his will, dated 16th 
March, 1763, he leaves the bulk of 
his property to his grandchild " Pat- 
rick Catto, and his heirs male or fe- 
male, procreat of his body ; failing, to

fuer (Pitfour), in tlie parish of Old Deer;

III. Florence Mabel. 
This gentleman, who was educated at Ballymena Academy, co. Antrim, 
Ireland, emigrated to Australia, where his brothers had preceded him thii-teen 
years previously, and arrived in Melbourne in May, 1852. After visiting the 
goldfields with some degree of success, he entered into pastoral pursuits, subse- 
quently, in conjunction with his brothers, purchasing Longerenong, one of the 
best stations on the Wimmera ; and afterwards, Yanko station, Murrumbidgee, 
New South Wales, with other properties. He was twice elected a member of 
the Legislative Assembly of Victoria for the Wimmera ; and was twice elected 
(first in 1875) to the Upper House of Legislature for the Western Province. 
He built the " Wilson Hall," of the Melbourne University ; introduced the 
salmon into Australian waters ; is the author of works entitled : Salmon at 
the Antipodes, The Angora Goat, and other valuable papers on acclimatisation. 
Sir Samuel Wilson was vice-president of the Melbourne International 
Exhibition of 1880, and a royal commissioner for the Fisheries Exhibition in 
1883. He unsuccessfully contested the county of Londonderry in 1881, and 
the northern division of Buckinghamshire in 1885, and was returned to 
Parliament, as M.P. for Portsmouth, in 1886 ; knighted in 1875. 



Hineage. 



SlE Samtjel Wilsox is paternally of a 
branch of the family of Wilson, settled in 
the north of Ireland. In the female line he 
claims descent from the ancient histi ric 
house of Kirkpatiick, of Closeburn, Dum- 
friesshire, traceable back to Ivone Kirk- 
PATKICK, who lived in the time of David I, 
and witnessed a charter of Robert Brus, Lord 
of Annandale, to the monks of Abbeyholm. 
In the troublous times of the latter half of 
the 17th century, three brothers (so says 
tradition) of the chief of the Closeburn 
family, crossed in an open boat from Gallo- 
way to the county of Antrim, landed at the 
Gi-iant's Causeway, and settled in the north 
of Ireland, where several families descended 
from them are still resident. One of these, 

James Kiekpateick, of Kinflay, co. An- 
trim, had a daughter, Elizabeth Kiek- 
pateick, b. in 1740 ; m. 1759, John Wilson, 
of Birneyhill (6. 1719 ; d. 1789), and had ten 
sons and two daughters. Of the former the 
seventh son, 

SAiirEt Wilson, of Ballycloughan, co. 
Antrim, b. 1775, m. 1808, Mary, daughter 
of Samuel Smyley, of Dunard, by his wife, 
Sarah Henry, of Fairview, Dungiven. They 
had issue, six sons and five daughters, viz.,

borne, in that county, b in 1731, was the 
only surviying son of William Cox, Esq., 
who was b. in 1695, and was the son of 
Thomas Cox, Esq. of Wimborne, co. Dorset,

New South Wales in 1801 as paymaster of 
the 102nd Regiment or New South Wales 
Corps, m charge of a number of convicts, 
chiefly Irishmen, who were concerned in the 
Rebellion of 1798, amongst wliom was Holt, 
the leader or general. Mr. Cox retired from 
the army, and became a successful colonist,

(where he employed Greneral Holt as man- 
ager), and subsequently at Clarendon on the 
Hawkestury river. Mr. Cox was chosen by 
Governor Macquarie to construct the road 
which crosses the Blue Mountains from 
Sydney, crosses Cox's river, and connects 
Bathurst Tvith the coast. Tliis road is 130 
miles in length, and for the service i-endered 
by its construction Mr. Cox received a grant 
of land in the Batliurst plains, which he 
called Hereford. He afterwards took up 
land in tlie Mulgoa valley, and also formed 
stations on the Macquarie river at Biu'rend- 
ong, and on the Coolah creek. In 1833 he 
removed from Clarendon to Fairfield, near 
Windsor. He was for some time engaged in 
pastoral pursuits, and the progeny of his 
merinos from the Cape now form the cele- 
brated Mudgee flocks. Mr. Cox was a magis- 
trate of the Territory, and d. at Fairfield,

journey, resting for awhile beneath a tree, 
fell asleep from fatigue. Three chiefs of a 
neighbouring tribe, at enmity, were on the

sprung up to defend himself, sIpw their chief, 
who was mounted on a white horse, and 



mortally wounded the other two. To com- 
memorate this achievement, he assumed for 
his crest a lizard (in Ireland termed a man 
keeper), and for his shield of arms three 
mullets pierced, with a white horse capari- 
soned, without a rider, on a field gu. ; adopt- 
ing for his motto the words, in Irish, I 
wound and I kill.

Hintage. 



The Bonytlions are an ancient Cornish 
family. Their original seat, Bonython, is 
" in the Lizard district in the parish of Cury, 
a bleak wild tract on the serpentine forma- 
tion, where the sea washes the lonely shores 
of Gunwalloe ; and in this remote district 
they flourished for many generations in great 
repute, exercising a wide influence, botii 
social and political, throughout the length 
and breadth of the land" (Gentleman's 
Maffazine, February, 1868). In the 12th 
century, Simon de Bonytlion went into 
Ireland as the king's special representative ; 
and one of the Cornish historians mentions a 
member of the family as a man of great 
repute in the reign of Henet V. During 
the preceding reign, the well-known estate 
of Carclew, iiear Falmouth, with an ad- 
joining manor, passed by marriage to Richard 
Bonython, son of Simon Bonython of Bony- 
tlion. Later on, the family had other seats, 
notably one in St. Columb Minor. They 
intermarried with the leading families of 
Cornwall. Sir Francis G-odolphin, the famous 
soldier of the reign of Queen Elizabeth, and 
the ancestor of the Earls of Q-odolphin, was 
the son of Katherine, daughter of Edmund 
Bonython. But it was during the troublous 
days of the Stuart dynasty that the Bony- 
thons figured conspicuously. They held 
various important official positions, had seats 
in Parliament and were to be found as 
distinguished men at the Bar, as well as in 
the Army and the Navy. The poet Long- 
fellow was a descendant of Captain Eichard 
Bonython, who was one of the original pro- 
prietors of what is now known as Maine in 
the United States of America. Both Bony- 



thon and Carclew have passed into otlier 
hands. At the beginning of the present 
century, the only property which remained 
was in St. Columb Minor. There lived 
John Bonython, Esq., the head of the 
family, who was the son of Thomas Bont- 
thon, Esq., by Mary Eoberts. his wife, and 
was b. in 1755. His eldest son (by Ann, 
daughter of John Langdon, Esq.), 

Thomas Bonython, Esq., was b. in 1787 ; 
emigrated first to Canada, and afterwards to 
Sovith Australia, whither he was followed by 
his eldest son (George Langdon) and grand- 
son (John Langdon) ; m. 5tli October, 1816, 
Ann, daughter of John Harris Langdon, Esq. 
of Newport (she was b. at Torpoint, co. 
Cornwall in 1799, and is still living in 
Launceston, Tasmania), and d. at Mount 
Barker, South Australia, 21st September, 
1860. His eldest son, 

Geoege Langdon Bonython, Esq. of 
Adelaide, South Australia, b. in Prince 
Edward's Island, 8th August, 1820; m. in

Tlie family of "Wentworth, originally

ford, and CO. of Yorlc.

to son, in an unbroken series, till the succes- 
sion of male heirs failed with William, the 
second Earl of Straiford, the junior scions of 
the family founded in several instances houses

dTamily of Cocfeburn. 

Petrits de Cockburn witnessed a dona- 
tion to the monastery of Soltra, co. Berwick, 
a. D. 1230; his ancestors possessed the lands 
of Cockburn in that co. as far back as Scottish 
history extends ; the adjoining estate of 
Langton came by the marriage of Alexander 
de Cockburn with Mary, daughter of De 
Vetereponte, Baron of Langton, killed at 
Bannockburn, and remained the seat of the 
principal family for nearly 500 years. 

The latest offshoot from the baronial house 
of Langton was that of Selburnrigg, founded 
by a younger son, who inherited that estate 
in Lammermoor from his father, the Baron 
of Langton, about the end of the 15th 
century ; it descended to 

James Cockburn, of Selburnrigg, whose 
loyalty to King James VII resulted in his 
being obliged to take refuge abroad, his lands, 
after the troubles of 1688. were added to the 
estate of Sir Archibald Cockburn, Bart, of 
Langton. He was father of 

John Cockbhen, d. at Langton, 1712,

other excellent parts (amongst which skill in 
music), was of the first rank in the court."

he was involved obliged him to sell his seat

" The word of denial, and letter of fifty. 
Is that gentleman's name who will never

Jeremiah Fbench, Esq. (the great grand- 
father of the above), or his immediate 
ancestor, is said to have come from the neigh- 
bourhood of Manchester, co. Lancaster. 
There is some account of him given in 
Munson's Early History of Manchester, 
Vermont, U.S.A., in 1764, to which point he 
came from New York State, and the public 
records at Montpelier, the capital of Vermont, 
contain much information about him. On 
the breaking out of the Revolution he, with a 
few others at Manchester, refused to assist 
the rebels, and joined the British A.rmy in 
Canada, serving as an officer under Burgoyne. 
In consequence of his loyalty to the British 
Crown his lands at Manchester were con- 
fiscated, and his wife and children driven 
from their home and land across the border. 
In 1792 he was a member of the first Canadian 
Parliament, and his name appears in the 
original records of the Parliament, which are 
in England. During the visit of the Duke of 
Kent (father of Queen Victoria), in the early 
part of this century, he was entertained at the 
residence of Jeremiah Fi-ench, and it was 
during the festivities on this occasion that 
the latter's daughter, a young girl, was 
accidentally shot by her own father, when the 
gentlemen, including the duke, were at target 



practice. He »»., and had, amongst other 
issue, a son,

1863 ; in. 1859, Frances, eldest daughter of Colonel Alexander Lawe, H.E.I.C.S, 
of Cork, Ireland, and has issue. 



Hineaae. 



There were three families bearing this 
surname in the time of Hbnbt VIII. Sir 
Richard is supposed to be descended from the 
Eet. S. Caetwright, pi-incipal of one of the 
colleges in Oxford, temp. Queen Elizabeth. 
Mr. Cartwright, who was sent to Boston by 
Charles II, in 1663, as commissioner to tlie 
then colony of Massachusetts, is also thought 
to be an ancestor of Sir Richard John Cart- 
wright. 

Richard Caetwright, Esq., was h. in 
London, February, 1720, settled in New 
York, 1741. In the troubles of 1775-6 his 
house was sacked and burnt, and he and liis 
son driven into exile. It is probable that all 
documentary evidence which might have 
proved the family to have been a cadet of the 
Cartwrights of Aynhoe then perished. He 
m. in 1743, Miss Beaseley, of Albany, State of 
New York (descended from one of the early 
Dutch families wlio settled in New Amster- 
dam when a Dutch colony), and had issue, 

Hon. Richard Cartwright, member of 
the Legislative Council of tipper Canada 
from its formation in 1792 vmtil his death, h. 
at Albany, State of New York, then a British 
colony, 2nd February, 1759. He accom- 
panied his parents into Canada, and for a 
time attended Colonel Butler, of the Queen's 
Rangers, as his secretary. He afterwards was 
associated with the Hon. Robert Hamilton, 
until this gentleman went to Niagara, Mr. 
Cartwright remaining at Kingston. Soon 
after his settlement in Kingston, Mr. Cart- 



wright was appointed judge of the Common 
Pleas, and on the division of the provinces 
was appointed a member of the Legislative 
Council, but declined to accept a seat in the 
Executive Council, which was several times 
offered to him. He m,. Miss Secord, of French 
Huguenot extraction (whose family came to 
America on the revocation of the Edict of 
Nantes by Lotus XIV), and d. at Montreal 
in 1815, having had issue,

Ht'neage. 



The name of Baillie is met with in the 
time of Edwaed I. Sir John Baillie is 
mentioned as being appointed one of the 
arbitrators to hear and determine upon the 
claims of the competitors for the Crown of 
Scotland in 1292, whose name and seal, 
seven stars with the motto " Quid clarius 
astris," is attached to that document. 
Tradition says that on a certain occasion one 
of the family single-handed killed a wild 
boar, and relieved his sovereign from danger, 
■whereupon he was desired henceforth to 
bear nine stars, which all his descendants do, 
but some of them have the boar's head for a 
crest, and others the arm and seymitar, being 
the weapon with which the deed was done. 

SiE William Baillie, of Lamington, co. 
Lanark, by Marian, his wife, daugliter of Sir 
John Seton, of Seton, had a numerous issue. 
The three eldest sons, it is said, had maimed 
a clergyman, who had been taken into the 
house as tutor, for a grievous offence which 
he had committed in their family, of which 
injury he died. The power of the Church 
at this time being great in Scotland, the 
three brothers were (continues the tradition) 
obliged to fly. 

The eldest, who settled in Inverness, is 
stated to have fought at the battle of 
Brechin, and to have been for his services 
rewarded with the lands of Dunain and 



Torbreck, part of the castle lands of Inver- 
ness; from him springs the family of Doch- 
four, and its derivative branch of Bedoastle 
and Tarradale (see Burke's Landed Qentri/ 
of Q-reat Britain and Ireland'). The second, 
of whom presently, settled in Ireland, and 
the third went to the Isle of Anglesey, and 
founded the family of which the Marquess 
of Anglesey is a descendant. The second 
brother was 

Alexawdee Baillie, who settled in Ire- 
land, at Innishargie, co. Down, in the reign 
of James I., about the year 1620, and d. 
1687. He had issue, John (Capt.), of whom 
presently; and Edward, who settled at Ring- 
dufferin, co. Down, and was ancestor of the 
family of Bailie of Ringdufferin (see Burke's 
Landed Oentry of Great Britain and Ire- 
land). The eldest son, 

Capt. John Baillie, who was h. 1623, 
d. 1687, and was s. in Innishargie by his 
eldest son, 

James Baillie, Esq., who was h. 1653, 
and d. 1710. He was s. by his second son, 

John Baillie, Esq. of Innishargie, 6. 
1697, who m. Jane, daughter of Matthew 
Forde, Esq. of Seaforde, co. Down, and d.

The Moffatts came from the Moffatt Hills,

Hi'ncaar. 



This family, styled by Camden in his 
Britanuica "the honourable and ancient 
house of Tyrwhitts, knts.," has been seated 
for several centuries in the north of England. 
It has had an able historian in one of its 
members, Mr. Robert Philip Tyrwhitt. The 



first person of the name of whom we have 
any certain account, is a SlE Hkeculps, who 
is said (on the authority of the Vincent and 
Harleian MSS.) to liave been knighted and 
settled in Northumberland, 2nd William I. 
This knight, or his son, bearing the same 

P 2

BURKE'S COLONIAL GENTRY. 



name, married a daughter of Sir Thomas 
Scargill, Knt., and was living A.D. 1109, 10th 
Hehry I. 

Sir Hercules is stated to have thus acquired 
the surname of Tyrwhitt : — Severely wounded 
in defending a bridge, single handed, against 
numerous assailants, at the moment he had 
succeeded in ibrcing them to retire, he fell 
exhausted amongst the flags and rushes of an 
adjoining swamp, while the attention of his 
party, who, in the interim had rallied, was 
fortunately directed to the spot where he lay 
by a flock of lapwings (or as called in some 
counties tyrwhits) screaming and hovering 
above, as is customary with those birds when 
disturbed in the vicinity of their nests. 
Camden, however, in liis Remains, derives 
the name from the place so called. The son 
of Sir Hercules, 

SiB Robert Tyrwhitt, was Lord of 
Tyrwhitt and Assancke, in Northumberland. 
He wedded a daughter of Sir John Wither- 
ington, and from this marriage descended, 
through a line of ^jrogenitors who allied with 
tlie Umfravilles, Lowthers, Harbottles, Ogles, 
Vauxes, of Gillesland, Nevilles, &c., 

Robert Tyrwhitt, grandson of Sir 
Oliver, who was grandson of Sir Hercules. 
This gentleman, who is described (Harl. 
MSS. 810) as " Robertus Tyrwhit arm. de 
Ketilby, com. Line, ac Tyrwhitt com. North- 
umbria," is mentioned in several of the MSS. 
sometimes as of Tyrwhitt and at others as of 
Ketilby. He m. Anne, daughter of William 
Wyciiffe, Esq. of WyclifEe (a sister or cousin 
of the celebrated John Wyciiffe, who was 
succeeded in the mastership of Balliol Col- 
lege, Oxford, by Thomas Tyrwhitt, a cadet 
of the family), and had two sons, 

I. Thoma?, of Tyrwhitt, who m. a 
daughter of Alan de Boisterick, and 
was ancestor of the Tyrwhitts, of 
Northumberland. 

II. William (Sib). 

The second son. 

Sir William Tyrwhitt, of Ketilby, in 
the county of Lincoln, is described in the 
Harleian MSS., No. 1550, as " Primarius 
Justicianus Anglise," but of Sir William's 
being invested with the chief-justiceship we 
liave no other authority. He in. the daughter 
and heiress of John G-rovale, Esq. of Harps- 
well, in Lincolnshire, and liad (with a 
daughter, Cecilia, who wedded Sir William 
Newport, Knt., and became, after her 
husband's death, Abbess of Ipswich) a son 
and successor. 

Sib Robert Tyrwhitt, Knt., of Ketilby, 
who was one of the judges of the court of 
king's bench, in the reigns of Henry IV, V, 
and VI ; his patents, four in number, are 
dated 8th Henry IV, 1st Henry V, Ist 
Henry VI, and may be found in Calen- 
darium Patentium, Twrri Londinensi. 
He is named among the " Tireurs des 
Peticions " to Parliament either for England 
or Ijascony and Aquitaine, for every parlia- 
ment between 9ih Henby IV and 7th 
Heney VI. That the boldness of the feudal 



chief, however, strongly predominated in the 
character of this learned functionary over the 
meekness of the christian judge, appears too 
evident by the following curious extract from 
Cotton's records : — " 13 Henry IV, William 
Lord Rosse, of Famlake, complayneth 
against Robert Tirwhitt, one of the justices 
of the king's bench, for withholding from 
him the manor of Molton Rosse, in Lincoln- 
shire, and laying wait for the said Lord Rosse 
with the number of 500 men. Sir Robert 
Tirwhitt before the kynge confesseth his 
fault and craveth pardon, and offeringe to 
stand to by order of two lords of the kindred 
of the sayd Lord Rosse as they should 
choose, whereunto the kynge agreed, and the 
sayd Lord Rosse chose the archbishop of 
Canterbury and the Lord Grey, chamberlaine 
to the kynge, who made alonge award, leav- 
ing the right of common of pasture in 
Wragby, in com. Line, to the determination 
of Sir William Gascoigne, chief justice, and 
it was enjoigned to the said Sir Robert 
Tirwhitt that at a day certaine he shod 
repair at Molton Rosse 2 tunnesof Gascoigne 
wyne, 2 fatt oxen, and 12 fatt sheepes, and 
offer rej)aration. And that he should bring 
together all knights, esquires, and yeomen, 
that were of his own, and that they shod all 
confess their fault and crave pardon, and 
further offer to the sayd Lord Rosse 500 
markes in money, and that the sayde Lorde 
Rosse should refuse the money, graunt him 
pardon, and take his dinner only." The 
whole of the proceedings in this matter, from 
their commencement by the petition of . 
William Lord Roos to the award of the 
arbitrators above mentioned, are recorded at 
great length in the rolls of Parliament, 13 
Henry IV. The details are very curious, 
and throw much light on the manners of that 
day. The award is an object of particular 
interest to the philological antiquary, as 
being almost the earliest specimen, on record, 
of English as a written language. 

This feud between the families of Rosse 
(or Roos) and Tyrwhitt continued up to the 
time of James I who, on the occasion of 
several lives being lost on both sides in a 
casual rencontre during a hunting party, 
caused a gallows to be erected at Molton 
Rosse, near Belvoir, declaring that he 
would hang the first like offender on it. 
This gallows is said to be renewed from time 
to time, up to the present day, whenever it 
falls into decay. (Gough's Camden, vol. ii, 
p. 388 ; History of Lincolnshire, 1826 ; and 
Gent's Magazine, part I, A.D. 1799.) Sir 
Robert had issue, 

I. William (Sir), his heir. 

II. John, of Harpswell, who m. the 
daughter and heiress of Sir . . . RoUes- 
ton, Knt., and had four daughters, of 
whom Elizabeth espoused John Which-

second son of Sir Goddard Oxenbridge, 
sometime governess to the Princess 
Elizabeth, by whom he had an only 
daughter and heiress, who m. Sir

tinct, but the estates have passed by 
will to the Drakes, of Shardeloes, and

Sir Robert's eldest son and heir, 

Sir William Tyrwhitt, Knt., seneschal 
of the priory of Gaykewell, served the office 
of sheriff for Lincolnshire, 28th Henry VIII, 
and, with his brother Robert, was one of the 
ecclesiastical commissioners for that county, 
in tlie 26th of the same reign. Sir William, 
who obtained large grants from the crown at 
the dissolution of the monasteries, married a 
daughter of Sir Robert Girlington, of Nor- 
manby, and, predeceasing his father in 1541, 
left issue, 

I. Robert (Sir), of Ketilby, who raised 
and led 250 of his tenantry with the 

the Tyrwhitts, descended from Adam Tyr- 
whitt, second son of Brian Tyrwhitt, of Tyr- 
whitt, and in the fourth degree from Sir 
Hercules, became extinct, the great part of 
their possessions in the counties of York and 
Lincoln devolving on the Tyrwhitts of Ketilby. 
A William Tyrwhitt, of this branch, after- 
wards Sir William, who married a daughter 
of John, Lord Lumley, was at Agincourt, with 
three archers ; he was son of Robert Tyrwhitt, 
of Beverley, who died 6th January, 1427, two 
years before his contemporary. Sir Robert 
Tyrwhitt, of Ketilby. It appears, too, that 
soon after the first Sir William Tyrwhite, 
described as " Primarius Justicianus Anglise," 
settled at Ketilby, that the lordship of Tyr- 
whitt, in Northumberland, was usui-pcd by a 
prior of the Order of Knights Hospitallers of 
St. John of Jerusalem ; it shortly after came 
into the possession of the Ogles, who were 
connected with the Tyrwhitts. 

+ This lady was the authoress of a small 
volume of Morning and Evening Praters, 
with dirers Psalmes, Simnes, and Medita- 
tions, Land. 1574. This little book was so 
highly valued by Queen Elizabeth, tliat she 
had a copy of it bound in solid gold. — Watt's

raised 1,500 men for the service of

successor, the Duke of Saxe-Weimar, 
had reformed the 6,000 British into 
two regiments, Lieutenant-Colonel 
Francis Tyrwhitt was, by Gustavus's 
desire, appointed to the command of 
the first. In November of the same 
year, a few days before the battle of 
Lutzen, he was taken prisoner by the 
Imperialists, whilst on a reconnoitring 
party with Gustavus, and was thus 
debarred from sharing the honours of 
that fatal day. He escaped after the 
action. In 1642, he joined King

HCineage. 



This family is lineally descended from that 
of Campbell, of Aberuehill, Baronets of 
Nova Scotia. The immediate ancestor of 
the family is SiE John Campbell, of Lawers, 
CO. Perth (great grandson of John Campbell, 
of Lawers, youngest son of SiE Colin Camp- 
bell, first of Glenorchy, 3rd son of Duncan, 
1st LoED Campbell, the ancestor of the 
families of Aegyle and Beeadalbane, see 
those titles in Burke's Feerar/e), who m. his 
cousin Beatrix, daughter of Sir Colin Camp- 
bell, of Glenorchy, and had three sons, 

I. Sir James Campbell, of Lawers, m. 
Jean, daughter of James, 1st Lobd 
Colville oe Culhoss (see Burke's 
Peerage). Their son, John, m. 1629, 
Margaret, Baeoness Loudoun, and 
was elevated to the peerage, 12th May, 
1633, by the titles of Baeon Faerin- 
TEANE AND Mauchline, and Eael of 
Loudoun, to him and his male heirs 
for ever ; but his lordship joining the 
opposition to the Court, the patent 
was, by a special order, stopped at the 
Chancery, and the title superseded 
until 1641, when it was allowed with 
the original precedency. In this year 
he was appointed high chancellor of 
Scotland, and first commissioner of the 
Treasury ; and after the decapitation 
of the king, when the Parliament re- 
assembled in 1648, Lord Loudoun was 
chosen president of the Session, which 
ordered the Proclamation of Charles 
II. Upon his majesty's subsequent 
defeat at Worcester, the earl was not 
only deprived of his office, but forced 



to conceal himself in the Highlands, 
while an act of attainder and forfeiture 
passed against him. His lordship and 
his son. Lord Mauchline, had the 
honour, afterwards, of being specially 
excepted frojn the indemnity granted 
by the usurper to the people of Scot- 
land. He d. 15th March, 1662, and 
was s. \>y his only son James, 2nd Earl 
of Loudoun (see that title in Burke's 
Peerage), who is represented as lieu- 
general by the Earl of Loudoun and as 
heir male by Sir James Campbell, of 
Aberuehill, 13ait. 

II. Colin Campbell, of Aberuehill. 

III. Archibald Campbell, prior of Stratli- 
Bllan. 

In 1594 Sir John acquired Aberuehill, and 
other lands, from the family of Moray, of 
Abereairny, and the following year resigned 
them in favour of his second son, 

Colin Campbell, of Aberuehill, who had 
a crown charter of confirmation in that estate, 
12th July, 1596, and acquired Craigineh, 
Leonards, and other lands. In 1612, Archi- 
bald, Earl of Argyll, justice general of Scot- 
land, granted a commission to " my lovit 
Colin Campbell, of Aberuehill," to apprehend 
or pursue to the death all persons of " that 
most unhappie and barbarous raice of the 
name of M'Gregor," his majesty's rebels. 
An Act of Parliament, 1617, against the elan 
Gregor, mentions depredations committed by 
tliem on the estate of Aberuehill. Colin 
Campbell had issue by his wife, Jean, daughter 
of Harie Drummond, of Eicearfon, 
I. James (Sinj.

from this marriage descends Sir 
Archibald Douglas Stewart, Bart., of 
Grandtidly, co. Perth (see Burke's 
Peerage and Baronetage). 
He was s. in 1618 by his eldest son, 

Sir James Campbell, of Aberuchill, a firm 
adherent of the royal cause, vpho was created 
a baronet of Nova Scotia by Eoyal Patent 
dated 13th December, 1627 (see Douglas's 
Baronage of Scotland). He m. Ann, daughter 
of Patrick Hepburn, of WooUing, and Janet 
Napier, his wife, and dying in November, 
1640, was s. by his son, 

SiB Colin Campbell, 2nd baronet of 
Aberuchill, then a minor, who became a 
lawyer and politician of note, and held the 
various high appointments of sheriff depute 
of Argyllshire 1668 ; senator of the College 
of Justice under the title of Lord Aberuchill 
1689 ; lord of justiciary and privy councillor 
1690 ; and was also of the Privy Council to 
Queen Anne 1703. He represented the co. 
of Perth in Parliament from 1690 to 1702. In 
1669 Sir Colin Campbell acquired the barony 
of Kilbryde, with its fine old castle near Dun- 
blane, Perthshire, the seat of the Earls of 
Menteith, still the property of his represen- 
tative. A crown charter a few months later 
erected all his lands into one free barony, hold- 
ing direct of tlie king, to be called Aberuchill, 
and made Innerucliill into a burgh of barony. 
Lord Aberuchill suffered losses amounting to 
17,201Z. at the hands of the Scots from the 
Highland Army, under Lord Dundee, and

pensation, which he appears never to have

Hi'ncngt. 



The family of Alison from very early times 
resided in the parish of Avondale, Lanark- 
shire. The Gaelic name is McAlister, and 
was changed into Alison when the clan was 
driven from Loupe, Argyllshire, by the fol- 
lowers of King Robert the Beuce. Alex- 
ander McAlister, a descendant of Gromerled, 
the Lord of the Isles, took the side of Baliol, 
and, with his brother John, was attacked by 
King Robert the Bruce in his principal 
stronghold called Castle Sweyn, in Knapdale. 
Compelled to flee he was taken pri-oner on 
liis way to Ayrshire and was confined in 
Dundonald Castle, where he d. in 1300. His 
brother John escaped to the abode of Sir 
Winter de Hamilton, in Hamilton, the an- 
cestor of the dukes of that name, who also at 
first took the side of Baliol. To preserve 
liim and his followers from the wrath of 
Bruce, Sir Winter de Hamilton placed them 
in Avondale. There tliey have continued for 
t;00 years, and a great many of the small 
estates in that neighbourhood are still owned 
by their descendants. Their original estate 
of Loupe was confiscated and given to the 
youngest brother, who remained faithful to 
£ruce, and that branch of the clan retained 
the ancient name of McAlister to the present 
century and are frequently mentioned in 
Scotch history. The Alison family are also 
alluded to several times in the time of the 
Covenanters. One Archibald Alison, of 
Windyedge, a farm belonging to the ancient 
estate of Cairnduff, fought at the battle of 
Drumclog against Claverhouse, afterwards 
Viscount Dundee, and also at the battle of 
Bothwell Bridge ; but at the skirmish at 
Ayrsmoss, he was taken prisoner and suifered 
martyrdom at the Grassmarket of Edinburgh 



in 1679. His dying testimony is recorded in 
the well-known volume called The Cloud of 
Witnesses. The sword of Michael, his 
brother, is still in the hands of the family, a 
sword which he wielded at the battles of 
Drumclog and Bothwell Bridge, and at the 
siege of Londonderry. His estate is still in 
the possession of a cousin of the present 
William Alison, Esq.

Etneage. 



The Macartliurs were originally the chiefs 
of the clan Campbell. 

The first appearance of the Campbells is 
in the reign of Alexander II of Scotland. 
The most ancient MS. genealogies attest their 
Gaelic origin. When iirst mentioned we find 
them divided into two great families, after- 
wards distinguislied by the patronymics of 
Macarthur and MaoCailinmore. Till the 
reign of Robert Bruce the Campbells did 
not possess a heritable right to any property 
in Argyllshire. The situation of the Mac- 
arthur branch at this time was very different, 
for we find them in possession of a very ex- 
tensive territory in the earldom of G-armoran, 
the original seat of the clan. It is, there- 
fore, impossible to doubt that Macarthur was 
at tliis time the head of the elan. This posi- 
tion he appears to have maintained until the 
reign of James I of Scotland. In 1487, when 
this monarch summoned his parliament at 
Inverness for the piurpose of entrapping the 
highland chiefs, John Macarthur was one of 
those who fell into the snare and seems to 
have been amongst the few specially devoted 
to destruction. He was beheaded along with 
Alexander the Lord of Garmoran, and his 
whole property forfeited with the exception 
of " Strachur," and some lands in Perthshire, 
which remained to his descendants. His 
position at the head of the clan is sufficiently 
pointed out by the historian. Bower, who 
calls him " Princeps Magnum apud suos, et 
dux Mille Nominum." 

Macarthur of Strachur was chief of the 
clan Campbell previous to 1427, since which 
date the oldest cadet, MacCailinmore of 
Campbell of Loch Arve, now Duke of Argyle, 
has filled that position, not by right of de- 
scent, but by feudal and territorial power. 

John Macarthur, Esq. of Strachur, Loch 
Arve, N.B., was slain at Culloden. He had 
seven sons (all of whom fought at Culloden 
Moor, a.d. 1746) : — i. Charles, who uiort- 
gagen his estate to the MacCailinmore or 
Argyle family. He had issue, two sons, 



1. Charles, in whose time the Strachur mort- 
gage fell due and was foreclosed; and, 2. 
Duncan, who entered the royal navy in 1794 
as an assistant surgeon. He eventually rose 
to the rank of a "pliysician of the fleet," and 
it was he who attended the great Duke of 
Wellington at his death ; ii. a son, who, 
after Culloden, went to Perthshire. His 
grandson was " Macarthur of Little Mill," 
Perthshire; ill. a son, whose grandson was 
" Macarthur of Hinton," a purser in the royal 
navy. He wrote a book of considerable merit 
on Naval Courts Martial ; IT. Alexander, 
of whom presently ; V. a son, also went to 
Perthshire, after Culloden. His grandson 
was a lieutenant R.N. ; Tl. a son, supposed 
to have been killed at Culloden; and Tii. a 
son, supposed to have gone out to the 
American colonies. The fourth son, 

Alexander Macarthur, Esq., fled from 
Scotland after the battle of Culloden, and 
apyie.'irs to have taken refuge in the West 
Indies, whence, after a time, he returned and 
settled at Devonport, Devonshire, England. 
He m. a Scotch lady, and by her had two 
sons, 

I. James, of whom presently. 

II. John, of Camden Park, Menangle, 
Camden co., and of Elizabeth Farm, 
Paramatta, Cumberland co., both 
New South Wales, Australia ; b. in 
1767, at Plymouth, co. Devon ; and 
entered the army in 1782, and at the 
close of the war in 1783 (his regiment 
having been reduced, and he being put 
on half -pay) entered upon a course of 
study to complete his education. 
After the lapse of some time he pur- 
chased a captain's commission in the 
102nd Regiment, destined for New 
South Wales ; embarked for Sydney 
with his young wife and infant son, 
afterwards General Sir Edward 
Macarthur, and arrived in Sydney in 
June, 1790. As early as 1791 he 
began to turn his attention to agricul-

ture ; in comiiion ■witli tlie other 
officers of llie regiment, lie was offered 
100 acres of land near Parraniatta, -with 
a promise that -wlioeTer first brought 
his land into cultivation should have 
an additional quantity. Captain Mac- 
arthur was the one to claim this privi- 
lege, and he it was who, in 1795, first 
broke Australian soil with a plough, 
all previous cultivation having been 
carried on in true primitive style, with 
the hoe. On the land thus acquii-ed 
he established a homestead, to which 
he gave the name of " Elizabeth 
Farm." In 1794, he purchased from 
a brother officer sixty Bengal sheep, 
which had been imported into the 
colony, and from that time devoted 
himself to the production of fine wool 
in Australia. In 1796 he obtained 
from the Cape some pure Spanish 
merino sheep, in all five ewes and three 
rams, and with this new and valuable 
blood he commenced to crop his hairy 
sheep ; and whilst others were devot- 
ing themselves to the jiroduction of 
carcasses, he steadily jaersevered in his 
original object — the production of fine 
wool. In 1801 he took the first sam- 
ples of merino wool to England, and 
having submitted them to the inspec- 
tion of a committee of manufacturers, 
they reported that the merino wool 
was equal to any Spanish wool, and 
the crossbred of considerable value. 
Supported by the manufacturers, who, 
in the unsettled state of Euroj^ean 
affairs, were fully alive to the advan- 
tage of obtaining a national source of 
supply for their raw material, and en- 
couraged by Lord Camden, the Secre- 
tary of State, Captain Macarthur 
decided on retiring from the army 
and devoting himself to the production 
of fine wool, on condition that he 
should receive a grant of not less than 
5,000 acres of land in any locality he 
might point out. He obtained some 
sheep from the royal flock of Spanish 
merinos at Kew, and retvirning to the 
colony in 1805, in the sliip "Argo," 
which he had purchased, he succeeded 
in landing five rams and one ewe. The 
land which was granted to him by 
Lord Camden, then known as " The 
Cowpastures," became the foundation 
of the Camden Park Estate, where the 
descendants of her grandfather's flock 
are preserved with great care by the 
present owner. After taking a lead- 
ing part in the deposition of Governor 
Bligh (a most accurate account of 
which is to be found in Eusden's 
History of Australia, vol. i), Captain 
Macarthur was, with several officers of 
the New South Wales corps, sent to 
England under arrest, and after an 
absence of seven years, being honour- 
ably acquitted, he returned to Aus- 
tralia in 1817, provided by the 



Government with suflncient accommo- 
dation for himself and his sons, James 
and William. John Macarthur was 
called the " Father of the Colony." 
In 1825 he was appointed member of 
the first Legislative Council of New 
South Wales. The expectations that 
he liad formed of the wool trade of 
the colony were crowned with com- 
plete success, and the wines from 
the vineyard which he formed at 
Camden have taken the first rank at 
international exhibitions. He m., 1788,

of Judgeworthy, Bridge Eide, Devon-

tenant, in 1820 to that of captain, 
and in 1826 to that of major. He

War ; was present at the battles 
of Corunna, Yittoria, the Py- 
renees, Nive, Nivelle, Orthes, and 
Toulouse, and was with the 39th 
Eegiment in Sicily, Canada, 
Spain, and France. After his 
return to England he was, for 
several years, secretary to the 
lord chamberlain ; was appointed 
to the charge of a district in 
Ireland during the troubles of 
1837 ; made lieutenant-colonel 
1841 ; subsequently went to New

1868; appointed first af?ent-general in England for Victoria, 1867, resigned

Ht'neage. 

At the G-eneral Survey, 

Bebteam de Vebditn (stated to have been 
son of G-odfreye, Comte de Verdun, sur- 
named "le Caplif ") possessed Farnham 
Royal, Buckinghamshire, holding the same 
by grand serjeanty, viz., by the service of 
providing a glove on the day of tiie king's 
coronation for his right hand, and of supijort- 
ing the monarch's right arm during the same 
ceremony, so long as he bore the royal 
sceptre. At the coronation of King G-eoege 
IV, it is believed that Sir G-. F. Verdon's 
grandfather was named as the person quali- 
fied by descent for this service, but being too 
old and infirm to attend the Court, it was 
performed by some representative Irish peer 
on his behalf. Bertram had three sons.

and of Ibstock, co. Leicester. 
IV. Simon. 

I. Alicia, m. to Ivo de Pantulf, of Wem, 
CO. Salop. 
Bekteam de Vebdon, the eldest son, was 
sheriff of Leicestershire from the 16th to the 
30th of King Henry II's, reign inclusive. 
He subsequently attended Richaed I to the 
Holy Land, and was at the siege of Aeon, 
which place, upon its surrender, was com- 
mitted to his custody. This Bertram founded 
the abbey of Croxden, co. Stafford, anno 
1176, and was otherwise a liberal benefactor 
to tlie Church. He ot. first, Maud, daughter 
of Eobert de Ferrers, Earl of Derby, by 
whom he had no issue ; and secondly, Eoesia, 
but of what family is unknown. He d. at 
Joppa, in 1192, having had issue, 

I. William d. s.p., 1199. 

II. Thomas, of whom presently. 

III. Bertram. 

IV. Robert. 

V. Nicholas, successor to his brother. 

VI. Walter, constable of Bruges Castle, 
in Valois, and had a son, Ralf de

I. Leceline, m. to Hugh de Lacy. 

The second son and heir, 

Thomas de Veedon-, m. Eustachia, 
daughter of Gilbert Bassett, and by her (who 
m. secondly, Richard Camville) he had no 
issue. He' d. in Ireland, amio 1199, s.p., 
when he was s. by his brother, 

Nicholas de 'Veedon, who, in the 6th 
John, paid to the king lOOZ., as also a 
courser and palfrey, for livery of those lands 
in Ireland, whereof his father died possessed. 
But in 12 years afterwards he took part with 
the rebellious barons, whereupon all his 
lands were seized by special precepts from 
the crown to the sheriffs of Warwick, Lei- 
cester, Stafford, Lincoln, Bucks, and Oxford, 
and placed in the custody of William de 
Cantilupe, during the king's pleasure. On 
his submission, however, to King Heney III, 
those lands were restored to him in the first 
year of that monarch, and he appears after- 
wards to have enjoyed the favour of the 
king. He died in 1231, leaving (by Joan, 
his wife) an only daughter and heiress, 

RoEsiA DE Veedon, who m. Theobald 
Le Botillee, of the noble family of Butler, 
of Ireland, but being so great an heiress, re- 
tained her maiden name after marriage, 
which her husband adopted. At the time of 
her father's decease, she appears to have 
been a widow. This lady, who founded the 
abbey of Grace Dieu, for Cistertian monks, 
at Beldon, in Leicestershire, d. in 1248, 
leaving issue, 

John, her heir. 

Humphrey, rector of Alveton, d. at 

Paris, 1285. 
Nicholas, who had the manor of Clu- 

more, in Ireland, d. s.p. 
Theobald de Veedon, ancestor of the 



Veedons, Lords of Darlaston and 
Biddulph, CO. Stafford. 
Maud, m. to John Eitz-Alan, Earl of 
Arundel. 

Roesia was s. by her eldest son, 

John de Veedon (alias Le Botiller). This 
great feudal lord, being one of the barons 
marchers, had orders, in the 44th HenetIII, 
on the incursions of the Welsh, to keep his 
residence upon the borders. After which he 
was one of the barons who adhered to the 
king, in the conflict between the crown and 
the nobles ; and upon the triumph of the 
royal cause at Evesham, he was commissioned 
to raise forces in Worcestershire, for the 
purpose of attacking the only remaining hold 
of the barons, at Kenilworth. But these 
troubles being at length ended, John de 
Verdon was signed with the cross, and 
accompanied Prince Edward to the Holy 
Land. John de Verdon m. first, Margerie, 
daughter of Gilbert de Lacie, and co-heir to 
her grandfather, Walter de Lacie, Lord 
Palatine of Meath, in Ireland, by which 
alliance the castle of Weobley, co. Hereford, 
came into the Verdon family ; and secondly, 
Alianore, whose surname is unknown. At 
his death, being slain in Ireland, 1278, he 
left issue, 

I. Nicholas (Sir), of Ewyas Lacie, d. v.p. 
and s.p., 1271. 

II. John, Lord of Weobley, d. s.p., circa 
1295. 

III. Theobald, of whom presently. 

IV. Thomas, of Staffordshire ; returned 
as a man-at-arms, l7th Edwabd II ; 
ancestor, it is believed, of Sir Thomas 
de Verdon, Knt., of Denston, co. Staf- 
ford, and of his brother. Sir John de 
Verdon, sheriff of Staffordshire, 34th 
Edwaed III, who d. s.p., leaving his 
sister, Joan, wife of John de Whit- 
more, Lord of Whitmore, his heir. This 
Joan left two daughters and co-heirs, 
viz., Joan, in. to Henry Clerk, of 
Ruyton, co. Salop; and Elizabeth, m. 
to James de Boghay, Lord of Whit- 
more. (See Burke's Landed Oentri/, 
MAiNWAEiNe of Whitmoee.) 

I. Agnes, d. 1305. 

The third son, 

Theobald de Veedon, lord of the moiety 
of Meath, in Ireland, had, in the 3rd 
Edwaed I, on doing homage, livery of his 
lands, paying 100?. for his relief. At this 
period he held the otfioe of Constable of 
Ireland. For some years subsequently this 
eminent person seems to have enjoyed the 
favour of the crown, and to have received 
several immunities ; but in the 19th of 
Edwaed's reign we find him arraigned for 
treason, and divers other misdemeanours, 
before the king and covmcil, at Bergavenny, 
ana condemned to imprisonment and con- 
fiscation ; the king, however, taking into con- 
sideration the good services of his ancestors, 
and his own submission, freed him for a fine 
of 500 marks; and he \\as soon after sum-

In the 29tli of the same reign (Edward 1),

24th October, 1314. This nobleman, in the

This family is of Scottish origin. About 
the middle of the 17th century several 
members of the family settled in London- 
derry, Ireland, where they remained till about 
the middle of the 18th century. Some of these 
went to America and settled temporarily in 
Londonderry, New Hampton, from which 
place four brothers of the name went to Nova 
Scotia, and settled in Truro in 17fi2. David 
Archibald, the eldest of these brothers, was 
b. in 1717. In 1766 he became the first 
member of the township of Truro, in the 
General Assembly of that province, and in 
after years the seat was held by his son, 
Samuel; his grandson, Samuel Greorge William; 
and his great grandson, Charles Dickson

liad landed property in that county for many 
generations, appears from a great number of 
old parchment deeds still in the possession 
of the family. The oldest which has at

VIII, and relates to the estate of East Brent, 
■which has only lately been sold. Referring

several deeds in the succeeding reigns, and a 
marriage settlement of the time of Chaeles II, 
in -which East Brent, Shipliam, and Kewbay 
are mentioned as family property.

Le, from his name. He was the grandfather 
of Mrs. Caroline Geant, tiee Nbve, the 
mother of the late James Grant, Esq.
