Palgrave 1

: Palgrave of Norwood Barningham, Palgrave of Palgrave, Palgrave of Thuckston
It appears that there is/was a village called Pargrave in Norfolk and there certainly is one called Palgrave in Suffolk whilst it appears from the web site of The Palgrave Society that some Palgraves moved from Suffolk into Norfolk at an early date. BEB1841 uses Palgrave throughout as did the later Visitation but the early Visitation used Pagrave whilst identifying the first John as "of Pagrave in Norfolk". 'Pargrave' was a common variant.

The late Mr. Robert Pa lg rave made considerable Collections relating to his Family History, and presumed Ancestry, for many years, and up to the date of his death in 1841.
An investigation to establish the Pedigree of the Pulham Branch was commenced in 1873 by the Editors, and the proof of that Pedigree, for over three centuries, having led to and involved the accumulation of much valuable information con- nected with that and other lines of Palgrave, it was decided, at the request and cost of Mr. CHARLES GEORGE PALGRAVE, to arrange and print them in this form.
The Editors are greatly indebted to Mr. Charles Bridger for the long and painstaking assistance he has rendered in every step of the work.

PALGRAVE, Palgrava in Domesday, a plea- f\(8^i^'" sant v '" a S e an ^ parish in the county of [ |?^ §yT Suffolk, on the borders of Norfolk, gave its name to a family so called ; but Blomefield, the historian of Norfolk, says that the Palgraves were "a very ancient family," and took their name from a place called Pagrave in the hundred of South Greenhowe in that county. An examination of early Palgrave records clearly establishes the co- existence of two main lines, who both eventually adopted one common form of surname : and this theory enables us to account for the frequency of its occurrence (and the impossibility of assigning all to one origin) in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. It is worthy of re- mark also, that, while each of these wide-spreading families were at times styled variously " Pagrave " and
t% Palgrave," as a rule that deriving its name from Pagrave in the north so wrote it, and the Palgraves of the south were as generally distinguished by the addition of the ' I/
Soon after the Conquest a part of Pagrave in Norfolk was separated from the rest and became the village called Pagrave Parva, or Little Pagrave \ whilst the other part was distinguished as Pagrave Magna*
The lordship of the former, says the same authority, was for many generations held by the Pagrave or, as the name became, Palgrave family, and here they had a seat, to which they built a chapel and attached to it the tythes of the manor, so that this chapel became parochial, and it was for a long time independent of the adjoining parish of Sporle ; but ultimately the a/ivowson and rectory of Little Pagrave were con- solidated with the vicarage of Sporle, and the lofty and spacious church of the Virgin Mary at Sporle became th * HIornefielcTs Norfolk, vol. vi. pp. 119, 125, 127.
Sporle is believed to have been founded by Henry II., who was Earl of Anjou, and on the suppression of English alien priories in 1420 it became vested in the Crown, until King Edward VI. gave it to the College of Eton, with which college the patronage still remains. " The Chapel at Pagrave," says Blomefield, "had long been delapidated," but in his time (1736) its site was well known. Pagrave Parva, although it still retains its separate name, is included in the parish of Sporle- with- Pagrave, and the whole is now designated Sporle.
In the reign of Henry II. John de Pagrave, son of Thomas de Pagrave, gave to the monks of Castleacre a yearly rent ; and it appears by the register of that abbey that several of the Palgraves gave lands to it from time to time. (*)
By the will of Henry Palgrave, who died in 1527, it is found that his widow was jointured on the manor of Pagrave Parva ; and indeed their possessions at this place remained in the Palgrave family until the final dispersion of their estates in 1737.
By Domesday Book it will be seen that at the time of the Survey there was a town in the hundred of Erpingham, in the county of Norfolk, called Barning- ham or Berningham, the lordship of which, after the
b 2
Conquest, was held by the Bigots, Earls of Norfolk, under whom the ancient family of De Berningham were early enfeoffed. After remaining in the latter family for several generations, their possessions passed to the Hethersets, ( 2 ) by the marriage of John de Hetherset with Elizabeth, one of the sisters and coheirs of Richard de Berningham.
This John de Hetherset was the son of Sir Simon de Hetherset, lord of Cringleford in Norfolk, and one of the Justices Itinerant, by Cecilia his wife.
John Pagrave acquired the lordship of Berningham by marrying Sibilla, * one of the two daughters and coheirs of William de Hetherset, son and heir of John de Hetherset, who in 1337 was made guardian of the wool customs in Norfolk. ( 8 ) William de Hetherset married Eva, daughter of Sir John de Hetherset, Knt,
and, leaving no son, this ancient family became extinct in the male line.

riage entitled to quarter with the arms of Palgrave, which, according to Blomefield, were Az., a lion rampant arg., and for a crest a leopard's head regardant ppr*
A view of Berningham church from the north north-east is here given. A family named Winter was possessed of an estate at Berningham from a very early period.
John Winter, son and heir of William Winter, a representative for the county of Norfolk in 1409, married for his second wife Elizabeth, one of the two daughters and coheirs (already mentioned) of William de Hetherset and Eva his wife, and consequently sister of the wife of John de Pagrave. By her he acquired a considerable estate, which was thenceforth called Berningham Winter or Ton Berningham to distinguish it from the pos- sessions of the Palgraves in Berningham Northwood.
* Blomefield's Norfolk, vol. viii. p. 92 et seq. Blomefield gives for Heth- erset a "leopard salient." Other authorities, a "lion." Certain it is that the Palgraves of Berningham quartered Arg. a lion salient or on their monu- ments in Berningham church ; but there is no record of these arras at Heralds' College.
The Palgrave arms frequently occur with the variations of the lion being gold or silver on the blue field, and either simply "rampant" or rampant gardant. It is reasonably conjectured that the family did not bear arms till the Hetherset marriage, when the arms of the heiress-wife were adopted (as was frequently the case) as the cognizance of the descendants. — S. T.
In the hall of the manor-house of Berningham Winter* were the arms of Winter, Cheqtty or and sa. a /ess arg. ; in the parlour, Winter quartered Berningham and impaled Hetherset, and also quartered the coats of nu- merous families into which the Berninghams, the Hethersets, and the Winters had married. ( 4 )
John Pagrave, eldest son of John Pagrave and Sibilla (Hetherset) his wife, married, first, Margaret,t daughter of Clement Herward of Aldborough in Norfolk, ( 6 ) and, secondly, Anne daughter and heir of Henry Sturmer of the city of Norwich. The latter survived her husband,
* Margaret Paston, writing to John Paston in 1450, says, " It ys told me that the Lord Moleyns xuld kepe his fastyngong (/>., Shrovetide) att John Wynter's plase." — Paston Letters.
t Blomefield calls this wife of John Pagrave the daughter of William Hanningfield ; and at " Hawsted Howse " in Suffolk, the seat of Roger Drury her third husband, the arms attributed to " Hanningfeild," Or a chev. sa., occur impaled with Drury. — Gage's Suffolk^ p. 443. William Hanningfield died 1426, leaving three daughters his coheirs, Elizabeth aged 4j Katherine aged 2, and Agnes aged 30 weeks. The second daughter, it is believed, married Henry Sturmer of Norwich, and Katherine Sturmer, widow, is mentioned in the will of John Banyard the second husband of the lady in question. It is just possible she may have been their only child and heir, as the Visitation states she was, or she may have been the Agnes mentioned in the Inq. /. m. f taken after the death of Wm. Hanningfield, as his youngest child, and on inheriting the estates of Henry Sturmer and Katherine his wife, after the death of the latter, was erroneously treated at the Visitation as heiress in blood.
and intermarried secondly with John Banyard of Norwich, and thirdly with Roger Drury of Hawstead in Suffolk. ( 6 )
John Pagrave, the eldest son by the first marriage, wedded Margaret, daughter of Sir William Yelverton, Knt., of Rougham, Norfolk.* ( 7 )
Henry Pagrave, their son, married Anne, daughter of John Glemham of Glemham in Suffolk. ( 8 ) He died in 15 16 and was buried in the parish church of Berning- ham Northwood, where there is a curious monumental brass to his memory and to that of his wife and of their twelve children, an engraving of which is annexed.
Clement Pagrave, their eldest son, married Margaret, daughter of William Rede of Beccles in Suffolk. ( 9 ) He died in 1583 and his wife in 1566. They were both buried in the church of Berningham Northwood.
Margaret the daughter of Clement Palgrave married first, temp. Queen Elizabeth, Thomas Hoo ; and secondly John Ferrour of Gressenhall. ( 10 )

• John Palgrave was one of the gentlemen of Norfolk who, in 1452, petitioned the " High and mighty Prince " the Duke of Norfolk to come into Norfolk for the suppression of certain riots of which they complained ; and in 1455 Thomas Canon, writing to John Paston, offered to sell him land in Little Palgrave on condition that he " kept it counsel from John Palgrave " until the bargain was concluded. — Paston Letters.
" authority in the county," commended his spirit to his Redeemer, as his epitaph informs us, in 1611, being then in his eighty-first year. An engraving of his monument in Barningham church is annexed. He left, by Urith, daughter of William Saunders of Ewell, Surrey, an only son, Sir Augustine Palgrave, who had been knighted by James I. at Hinchingbroke, 24th November, 1604. He filled the office of Sheriff of Norfolk in 161 7, in which capacity, when attending Chief Justice Montague at the Norwich Assizes, he advised the Chief Justice to take the chair at the annual open-air preaching, which, according to ancient custom, was held in the " Green Yard " of the cathedral. To this innovation John Mingay, the then Mayor of Norwich, would by no means submit, whereupon the Chief Justice had to give way to the civic authority, and consoled himself by blaming the High Sheriff for his officiousness.
Sir Augustine Palgrave married Elizabeth, daughter of Sir John Willoughby of Rysley in Derbyshire, by whom he had nine sons and five daughters. She " commended her spirit," as her epitaph records, in 1634, aged fifty- three. He and his wife were buried under a stately monument in the parish church of Berningham North wood, of which an engraving is here given.

FAMILY OF PALGRAVE. 9

John Palgrave, their eldest son and heir, was created a baronet 24th June, 1641. He married first Elizabeth, daughter of John Jermy of Gunton (") in Norfolk, who died in 1634, and secondly, Anne, daughter of Sir William De Grey of Merton, Norfolk, ( 12 ) and widow of Cotton Gascoigne, Esq., of Illington in Norfolk. ( 13 ) She survived her second husband, Sir John Palgrave, and died on Christmas Day, 1676, and was buried in the chancel of the church of St. Peter H ungate, Norwich, where there is a monument to her memory bearing the shields of Gascoigne (single), De Grey (in a lozenge), and Palgrave (single). Annexed is an engraving of this monument. The Palgrave arms also appear in stained glass. They had one daughter, Ursula, who married first William Barsham of Colkirk, and secondly Samuel Smith of Colkirk, Norfolk, and upon her issue by the second marriage the Palgrave estates ultimately devolved, as will be presently seen.
John Palgrave was returned to Parliament for the county of Norfolk in 1640; and although created a baronet by Charles I., in the following year we find him in strong hostility to the Crown. This, however, does not prove any change in his political opinions. It may be that the honour was forced upon him for the sake of the fees which attended it ; but it is strong
evidence of his social position at that time and of his ability to sustain this title. In 1642 he was made a commissioner for the maintenance of an army in Norfolk, and in the following year was appointed a commissioner for sequestering the estates of delinquents, and also a commissioner "for the relief of the Commonwealth." He was on the Committee of the Associated Counties of Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Cambridge, Hertford, and Huntingdon, to which Leicester was afterwards added. In 1643 h e was one of the Earl of Manchester's com- missioners for the surrender of King's Lynn, and on the 15th of February following he was named in the Ordinance for the defence of the kingdom and for the levying of money, and in September of that year he was appointed to treat with Prince Rupert at Newark.
In 1650 he was appointed a Justice of the Peace for the county of Norfolk, and his last appointment appears to have been that of Commissioner of Assessments in 1656. He never despaired of the Commonwealth, for in April, 1660, when a "Healing Parliament " was called, Sir John Palgrave consented to stand for the borough of Great Yarmouth, having that notorious regicide Miles Corbet as his colleague. They were elected by the corporation, who at that time claimed the sole right of voting for burgesses to Parliament, in exclusion of

the freemen at large. The latter however determined to assert their right to vote, and nominated Sir John Potts, Knt. and Bart., of Mannington in Norfolk, and Sir William D'Oyley, Bart., of Shotesham in Norfolk. The bailiffs made a return of Sir John Palgrave and Miles Corbet, and were ordered by the corporation not to sign or seal any other indenture which might be tendered to them. A petition to Parliament was then presented complaining of the return made by the bailiffs. It was referred to a Committee of the House of Commons, and Mr. Bailiff Emperor and Mr. Bends, the Town Clerk, went to London to defend what they considered to be the privileges of the corporation. The committee decided that the freemen at large were entitled to vote, and they ever after retained this pri- vilege until disfranchised in 1848. Palgrave and Miles Corbet were unseated, and Potts and D'Oyley declared duly elected, and they, being royalists, no doubt voted for the unconditional return of King Charles II. Miles Corbet fled to the continent, but was afterwards cap- tured, and ultimately hanged at Tyburn. Nothing apparently happened to Sir John Palgrave after the loss of his seat, for we hear of him no more.
He died in 1672, aged sixty-seven, and was buried at Berningham North wood, and was succeeded in the c 2
baronetcy by his eldest son Sir Augustine Palgrave, who married first Barbara, daughter and heir of Cotton Gascoigne of Illington, and secondly Catherine, daughter of Sir William Spring of* Pakenham, Suffolk, ( 14 ) and thirdly Anne, daughter of Sir Richard Grubham Howe of Wishford in Wiltshire. ( 16 ) Sir Augustine Palgrave was one of the Gentlemen of the Privy Chamber, and at the coronation of James I. his name stands at the head of the list of those in attendance on that occasion.
In Sandford's book of the " Grand proceeding to " their Majesties Coronation from Westminster Hall to "the Collegiate Chufch of Saint Peter in Westminster "on Thursday, 23 rd of April, being the Festival of " St. George in y c year of our Lord 1685," there is a plate representing the " Gentlemen of y c Privy Cham- ber" in their habits, four abreast, the first being, as is supposed, " Sir Augustine Palgrave, Baronet."
The annexed plate is from a drawing made from the above-mentioned engraving, and is believed to represent Sir Augustine Palgrave. He died in 1629, aged eighty- one, and was buried at Berningham North wood.
Urith, daughter of Sir Augustine Palgrave, born in 1661, was married at Berningham North wood in 1683 to Haynes Barlee, who was son of Haynes Barlee, Esq., and Mary his wife, daughter of William
Riddlesden of London. He was a captain in the Essex Trained Bands, Deputy Lieutenant of, and in the Commission of the Peace for, that county. He died 6th July, 1691, in the twenty-seventh year of his age, and was %< invaulted," as his epitaph terms it, in Clavering church, Essex. (**)
By his third marriage Sir Augustine Palgrave left an only son and heir, Sir Richard Palgrave, Bart., who died at Norwich in 1732, aged forty-four, and was the last of his race, buried in the Church of Berningham Northwood. Dying unmarried, and there being no known living male descendant of the first baronet, the tide became extinct.
A suit in Chancery was then instituted, and under a decree of that court, the estates, which had been for centuries vested in the Palgrave family, were sold and dispersed, and the purchase-money divided among the four daughters of Samuel Smith of Colkirk, who was the son of Ursula Palgrave (by Samuel Smith her husband,) already mentioned as the daughter of Sir John Palgrave, Bart. ; they being declared to be the next of kin and coheiresses at law of Sir Richard Palgrave, the last baronet.
* A Pedigree of the Baronet Family of Palgrave of Northwood Barn ingham is annexed.
They were —
i. Catherine, who married Thomas Bendish, Esq., and died s.p. ( 17 ) ; called of " Colkirk, jure tixoris"
2. Urith, who married Stephen Offley of Norton Hall, Derbyshire.
3. Theodosia, who married Samuel Sparrow of Lavenham in Suffolk, ( 18 ) and secondly, Samuel Freeman of Beverley, Yorkshire.
4. Lucy, who married John Pett of Debenham, Suffolk, and secondly, Jonas Rolfe of Kings Lynn.
The Pagrave estates at Berningham North wood came by purchase to the Windhams of Felbrigg.
William Windham was lord in 1760.
In the hall of the manor house of Berningham North wood were, with the arms of Palgrave, those of Wanton, Beaston, Drury, Rede, and others.
The advowson of the rectory of Berningham North- wood was vested in the family of Berningham, who presented in the reign of Edward L, and passed from them to the Hethersets, and so to the Palgraves.
In 1508, Henry Pagrave presented, and, dying in 1524, Sir William Paston presented as guardian to Henry Palgrave's infant son, Clement Palgrave ; and the Palgraves continued to present until the death of Sir Richard Palgrave, the last baronet. *
* John Palgrave died Rector in 1721.

Of this prior>-, to which the Palgraves were benefactors, some picturesqu. -uins still exist, especially the west front, a view of which is here given.
At the Dissolution it was granted to the Duke of Norfolk, and i the property of the Earl of Leicester.
(2) P. 4. H ETHERNET.
The name is derived from the parish of Hethersetc, HtdmtUt in Domesday.
The manor here was possessed by Sir Simon Hetherset, "a man of note." From the Hethersets it passed to the P.igraves by the marriage already mentioned.
(3) P. 4. Wool Customs.
In the middle ages the duty upon wool exported formed a considerable item in the king's revenue from customs.
These duties were usually farmed.
Thus we find, by the Abbreviatio Rotulorum origiualium, that the celebrated Yarmouth Admiral, John Perebrown, farmed the king's customs on all wool exported. R. Assignavit Johfm Perbrown ad custunam /ana, &*c., inportu ville ntagne Jeremuth. Edward III. — See Perlustration of Great Yarmouth, vol. i. p. 204 ; ii. p. 182.
(4) P. 6. Berningham Winter.
This lordship, in the reign of Queen Elizabeth, passed into the possession of the great Norfolk family of Paston, and in 161 2, instead of the former hall, which was then pulled down, Sir Edward Paston, Knt., erected the present mansion, which continued with his descendants until 1756.
In 1775, it came into the possession of the Mott family, the present owner being John Thomas Mott, Esq., who is the principal land owner in the parish. The west or entrance front of the hall remains in its original state, and presents a fine example of the style prevailing in the reign of James I., in which the double dormer is a conspicuous feature. The drawing-room is a good specimen of the Elizabethan style of internal decoration.
(5) P. 6. Herward.
This family, which bore Az. a fesse gabonee arg. and vert, between three owlets arg., had large estates at Aldburgh and at Boton in Norfolk. —Blomefield, vol. viii. p. 73, and vol. vi. pp. 359, 462.
(6) P. 7. Drury.
The Drurys were a very ancient and honorable family in the counties of Norfolk and Suffolk.
The Drurys of Hawstead in Suffolk bore, Argent, on a chief vert a tau between two mullets pierced or. — See Gage's Suffolk, p. 405.
Anne Drury of Norwich, widow, "late wife of Roger Drury, Squyer," by her will, proved in 1 503, desired " to be buryed in the hows of the Blak Ffryers in Norwich, by the grave of John Pagrave, sutyme my husband." She bequeathed to Henry Pagrave, her "neve," her "stondyng pece all gilt," with her father's and mother's arms thereon. To Anne Pagrave her " best gown," and to Margaret Drury a gown " next the best." She made Henry Pagrave one of her executors, and Sir Robert Drury, Knt, supervisor.
A branch of the Drury family established itself at Great Yarmouth in the sixteenth century, where, upon what had been the precinct of the Dominicans or Black Friars, Roger Drury erected a dwelling-house, which remains to this day, and has a cut-Hint front which is a good specimen of the style of architecture then prevailing. — See Per lustration , vol. ii. p. 432.
(7) P. 7. YELVERTON.
Sir William Yelverton was a Judge of the King's Bench in 1444, and was made a Knight of the Bath in 1460 ; and by Jane his first wife, daughter of Sir Oliver le Gros, was father of Sir John Yelverton, Esquire to the body of Edward IV.
The Yelvertons were a very ancient and honorable Norfolk family, having large possessions at Rougham and elsewhere.

(8) P. 7. Glenham.
Glenham of Glenham in Suffolk bore, Or, a chev. between three torteaux. They had also possessions in Norfolk, and matched with the best in that county. — Gage's Suffolk.
(9) P. 7. Rede.
William Rede, a merchant and citizen of London, obtained a grant of the manor and advowson of Beccles in 1539, on the dissolution of the great monastery of Bury St. Edmund's, to which they belonged.
He bore, A 2., on a bend wavy or, three Cornish chough's ppr., within a bordure engrailed arg., charged with torteaux or, pallets az.
Peter his brother, who was knighted by Charles V. for the winning of Tunis, in 1538, was allowed, with other augmentations, "a sword in pale, point down- wards, sticking into a Moor's head." A branch of the family settled at Great Yarmouth. For further particulars see Perlustration, vol. i. p. 109. Thomas Rede of Beccles married Theophila, one of the two daughters and coheirs of William Leman of Beccles (descended from an ancient Suffolk family) and by her left two daughters and coheirs, one of whom married the Rev. Richard Turner of Great Yarmouth, and the other the Rev. Samuel Lovick Cooper of Great Yarmouth, (see Perlustration, vol. ii. p. 202) ; the latter was the mother of Sir Astley Cooper, Bart., the celebrated surgeon.
The Rev. Rede Cooper, second son of the Rev. Samuel Lovick Cooper, assumed the name and arms of Rede only, by royal sign manual, in pur- suance of the will of his maternal uncle, and succeeded to the Rede property at Beccles, and to other estates inherited by the Redes from the Wingfield, Naunton, and Leman families. —See Gage's Suffolk,
(10) P. 7. FERROUR.
John Ferrour, Steward of the Manor of Gressenhall, Norfolk, by his will, made in 1483, gave lands there "to keep his anniversary." The north transept of the parish church at Gressenhall was called Ferrour's Chapel. A family of this name flourished at Norwich in the sixteenth century.
Robert Ferrour was twice Mayor of Norwich, as was William his son, who died in 1577. Richard Ferrer, son of the latter, filled the same office in 1596, and died in 161 6.
Richard Ferrour, or Ferrier, as the name became, son of the last-mentioned Mayor of Norwich, came to Yarmouth, where he appears to have soon taken root, for in 1643 he was chosen one of the bailiffs. His descendants, during that and the succeeding century, repeatedly filled the office of mayor, and also represented the borough in Parliament.
A further account of this family will be found in the Perlustration of Great Yarmouth, vol. i. p. 237.
(I I) P. 9. JERMY.
John Jermy was lord of Gunton in Norfolk. This lordship was sold by his son to the Harbords, and is now enjoyed by Lord Suffield.
Some account of the Jermy family will be found in the Perlustration^ vol. iii. p. 141 ; and also of the murder at Stanfield Hall, which will ever be connected with the name.
Jermy bore, Arg.,a lion passant guardant gu.
(12) P. 9. De Grey.
The family of De Grey, ancestors of the present Lord Walsingham, acquired their estate at Merton in Norfolk, in the fourteenth century, by the marriage of Sir Thomas de Grey with Isabel daughter and coheir of Fulk Baynard, Esq.
(13) P. 9. Gascoigne of Illington.
Lady Palgrave by her first marriage was jointured on the manor and advowson of Illington, and in 1743 Sir John Palgrave, Baronet, in her right, presented the Rev. John Palgrave, M.A., to that rectory.
(14) P. 12. Spring.
This family bore, Arg. on a chevron between three mascles gu, as many cinquefoils or.
They settled at Lavenham in Suffolk early in the fifteenth century, and afterwards flourished at Pakenham in the same county.
John Spring was lord of the manor of Gorlcston, Suffolk, temp. Hen. VIII. — See Perlustration, vol. iii. p. 317.
A Pedigree of this ancient family has been privately printed.
(15) P. 12. HOWE of Wishford.
John Howe of Wishford, son of John Howe, Paymaster General of the Forces to Queen Anne, was created a peer by the title of Baron Chedworth, and died in 1742.
The second lord died in 1 781, and was succeeded by his nephew, who resided for many years at Ipswich, and made frequent visits to Yarmouth. He was remarkable for his eccentricity and for his peculiar will, printed in the Gentleman's Magazine for 1804. — See Perlustration, vol. ii. p. 161, and Gage's Suffolk, p. 4.
(16) P. 13. Barlee.
The family of Barlee came originally from Barlee, or Barley, in Hertfordshire, and settled at Albury in that county : had possessions at an early period at Clavering in Essex.
Henry Barlee filled the office of Sheriff of Herts and Essex in 1466.
William his son forfeited the family estates by joining Perkin Warbeck in 1550. His son Henry was Sheriff of Essex and Herts in 1524. Under the will of Palgrave Barlee of Clavering, some of the family estates passed to Catherine, the only daughter of William Buckle of Ditchingham, by Bridget his wife, daughter and at length heir of Edward Hobart, Esq., by Catherine his wife, daughter of Haynes Barlee and sister of Palgrave Barlee, both of Clavering, whereupon Catherine Buckle obtained a grant of the name and arms of Barlee — Barry, wavy of six, sa. and erm., with a canton for difference.— See Perlustration, vol. iii. p. 265. Frederick Palgrave Barlee is now (1877) Lieutenant Governor of British Honduras.
(17) P. 14. Thomas Bendish.
He was descended from "the very ancient family of Sir Thomas Bendish of Essex, Ambassador from King Charles I. to the Grand Seignior," and from Thomas Bendish, who resided at Great Yarmouth, and took a prominent part in the civil and religious controversies in that reign, as may be seen in the Perlustration, vol. iii. p. 281. This Thomas Bendish left one son, Thomas Bendish of Gray's Inn, who married, in 1669, Bridget, daughter of General Ireton by Bridget his wife, eldest daughter of Oliver Cromwell. He resided on the Southtown road, Great Yarmouth,
and dying in 1707, was buried in St. Nicholas' church, where his hatchment still remains, bearing, Arg. a chevron between three rams' heads cus. for Bendish imp. ertn. a bend voided or, for I ret on. By the above marriage there were two sons and one daughter, the latter being the well-known and eccentric Bridget Bendish, who is said greatly to have resembled her grandfather, the Lord Protector.
The eldest son was Thomas Bendish, who married Catherine, the granddaughter of Sir John Palgrave, and one of the coheiresses, and he is said to have squandered the fortune acquired by her, and to have gone to the West Indies.
(18) P. 14. Sparrow.
A large landed proprietor in Suffolk of this name had the misfortune to differ with his humble neighbours. Their cause was espoused by the parson of the parish, who had his own ground of quarrel, and who preached a sermon from the text, " Fear not, you are of more value than many sparrows"
[|T the commencement of the sixteenth century Henry Pagrave was lord both of the Manor of Thuxton and the Manor of Berningham- North wood, for in 1513 he appointed both Manors to remain in the hands of Sir Robert Brandon, William Paston, Esq., Anne his wife and John his son. — See Blomefield's Norfolk, vol. x. p. 253.
His second son, Thomas Palgrave, founded the Thuxton branch of the Palgrave family. They became very numerous, and matched with the Guntons. Patricks, Sefoules, Pigeons, Plewes, Lanes, Tyrrells, Pearsons, and other Norfolk families of repute.*
* A Pedigree of the Palgraves of Thuxton is annexed. E 2
There are monuments and sepulchral brasses in Thuxton church to the memory of the Palgraves.
Two brasses with the following inscriptions, pre- viously in Thuxton church, but which had been rived from the stone, were purchased some years ago by Mr. Thomas Balls of Kirtley, and by him restored : —
" Mary Seffowle bvryed in this place, Second wife to Gregory Pagrave was, Of hir he have children too sones only, The eldest named Robt y* other Gregory ; Hirsovle Christ toke to his endless mercy The xj lh of June M.D. eight and seventy."
Another brass has this inscription : —

" Her sovle rest in joy by God's fre mercy."
Mary Palgrave of Letheringset, spinster, descended from the North wood -Barningham family (see that Pedigree), by her will, proved 27th August, 1723, de- vised her several Manors in Hackford, Whitwell, and Reepham, and elsewhere in Norfolk, and the advow- sons of Hackford and Whitwell, to James Hunt of
Thornham in Norfolk, and his heirs ; and her estates at Letheringset and Holt to the right heirs of Charles Worsley, then late of Salhouse in Norfolk, Clerk. She mentions her cousin Elizabeth, daughter of Elizabeth Winspear, and grandchild of Sir Augustine Palgrave, Bart., deceased, and to her she gave pictures of Sir William de Grey and his Lady; she gave all her books, &c, to William, son of the Rev. John Cory (*) of Landbeach in Cambridgeshire, and to the Rev. Palgrave Cory of the city of Norwich, and to the former a picture of her grandfather Sadler. She bequeathed to the said James Hunt three pictures of the Hunts, and all the rest of her pictures and the hangings in her parlour to the right heirs of the said Charles Worsley. She bequeathed a legacy of ^20 to Sir Richard Palgrave, Bart., and many legacies to others, and to her cousin Nicholas Playford of North Repps ;£io and a ring with the Playford coat of arms.

J »iifcT«aJ HERE are two adjoining parishes named !^|L»Jk Pulham in Norfolk, both in the Earsham *J 5^jQ ^,' hundred, viz., Pulham St Mary Magdalen, commonly called Pulham Market, and Pul- ham St. Mary the Virgin, usually called Pulham Mary.
In 1558 Thomas, son of Thomas Palgrave of Pulham Market, married Christian, daughter of Thomas Sayer,(*) a considerable landed proprietor ; and in 1681 their descendants, Thomas Sayer, Justice of the Peace, and William Palgrave, were returned as lords of the manor.
In the church of St Mary Magdalen there are several monuments to the memory of the Palgraves, the oldest of which is a gravestone, with shield of arms sculptured, in memory of Thomas Palgrave, who died in 1638. A plate of these arms is here given. There are, or were, hatchments of Palgrave, Howman (Gu. a rose arg, barbed vert, a chief erm.) impaling

Thomas Palgrave, of the city of Norwich and of Pulham Market, filled the office of Sheriff of that city in 1699, and was returned as one of her Members of Parliament in 1 703 ; was re-elected in 1 704, and again in 1707. He died 7th August, 1726, in his eighty-fifth year, and was buried in the parish church of Pulham, where there is an inscription to his memory, which records that "he gave ^100 to a Charity School " in the Parish of St. Peters Mancroft in Norwich " (where he was born) towards the education of poor "children according to the Liturgy of the Church of " England." ( 3 )
He married Mary, daughter of Robert Howard of Norwich, and by her had three daughters, who became his coheirs. Elizabeth the eldest married, first, Richard Lubbock, an alderman of NorwUfc, who died when filling the office of Mayor in 171 7; and, secondly, Richard Bacon of Norwich ; Margaret, the second daughter, married Edward Howman of Norwich, M.D., and Christian, the third, married Henry Negus of

Hoveton, Norfolk. ( 4 ) Maria, daughter of William Palgrave of Pulham, married the Rev. John Whitfield, D.D., of Trinity College, Cambridge, rector of Dickie- burgh in Norfolk. She died in 1730, and in the chancel of Dickleburgh parish church there is a highly laudatory epitaph, in Latin, to her memory, composed by her husband, who died 16th October, 1731, aged fifty. He was a native of Wem in Shropshire, and, according to her tomb, bore a bend between two cotises engrailed. William Palgrave of Ipswich was educated at Caius College, Cambridge, and practised as a physician at Ipswich, where he died in 1742, aged forty-nine. By his will he settled estates at Pulham, Dickleburgh, and elsewhere, on his sons ; and as to one settlement he included in the remainder his brother-in-law the Rev. Francis Burton. His capital messuage at Ipswich he devised to his wife.
There is a monument to his memory on the wall of the north aisle in Pulham church, with the arms of Palgrave and the following inscription : — " H. S. E. " Gulielmus Palgrave, M.D., de Gippovico in Comitatu " Suffolciensi. Gulielmi Palgrave, de fwc Pago Generosi " Filius, ob. Sept. 14 , a.d. mdccxlii. JEt. 49. Liberi 4< ejus Johannes et Dorothea Infantes, morte abrepti " hie sepeliuntur."
Catherine Palgrave of Needham Market (born Jay) and widow of Austin Palgrave, by her will, proved 21st August, 1764, desired to be buried in the church of Pulham St. Mary Magdalen near her late husband. She gave an estate in Needham to Anne her daughter absolutely, she paying her sister Catherine, ( 6 ) the wife of the Rev. John Manclarke of Great Yarmouth, ;£ioo; all the residue she gave to her son William Palgrave of Needham Market (who died s. p.), and to her said two daughters except " one guinea," which she gave to her son Thomas Palgrave, if he should be living at her decease.*
Another descendant of the Pulham family was the Rev. William Palgrave. He was a Fellow of Pem- broke College, Cambridge. In 1766 he was instituted to the Rectory of Palgrave, which had long been the object of his desire, his ambition having been to call himself Palgrave of Palgrave. He was also Rector of Thrandeston in Suffolk, both livings being then in the gift of the Cornwallis family, who held large possessions in Suffolk, which ultimately passed by

purchase to the Kerrisons. When at Cambridge he enjoyed the friendship of Gray ; and in Mason's Life of the Poet will be found some letters written by him to Mr. Palgrave in a style of easy friendship and openness, which indicate the esteem in which he held him.
Gray addressed a letter to Mr. Palgrave in 1758, when the latter was paying a visit to Scotland, and again in 1765, when he was making a tour in France and Italy. ( 6 ) The literary associations of Mr. Palgrave were not confined to the Poet Gray at the University of Cambridge, for Gibbon, in the Autobiography (published by Lord Sheffield after Gibbons death) describing his life in England between 1765 and 1770, during "the "winter months in London," mentions that "a weekly " convivial meeting was established by myself and other " travellers, under the name of the Roman Club." A note to this states that —
" The Members were Lord Mountstuart (now Marquis 4 * of Bute), Colonel Edmonstone, W. Weddal, Rev d . M r . 14 Palgrave, Earl of Berkley, Godfrey Clarke (Member 44 for Derbyshire), Holroyd (Lord Sheffield), Major 41 Ridley, Thomas Charles Bigge, Sir William Guise, 44 Sir John Aubrey, the late Earl of Abingdon, Hon. 44 Peregrine Bertie, Rev d . M r . Cleaver, Hon. John
" Darner, Hon. George Darner (late Earl of Dor- " chester), Sir Thomas Gascoygne, Sir John Hort, and "E. Gibbon." This note is supposed to be by Gibbon, and was probably completed by Lord Sheffield after 1796, the date of the Marquisate of Bute. The rector of Palgrave was wry-necked. Riding one day with his brother, who had an impediment in his speech, his horse ran away with him and ultimately threw him. Some rustics, to whom the Rector's person was unknown, found him stunned and speechless. Supposing the above-mentioned defect to be the result of the accident, they endeavoured to force the head straight on the shoulders, when the brother rode up and with much sputtering and difficulty made them understand that "the gentleman was born so."
He died at Brighton, 5th November, 1799, aged sixty-four, " Amidst/ ' says the Ipswich ^ourna/ f "a "concurrence of his sorrowing parishioners, who on " the death of their worthy rector lamented, in common "with all who knew him, the loss of a man in whom "every benevolent, social, and amiable quality of the "heart that could endear him to his fellow creatures "were combined."
By his will he appointed Thomas Maynard of Hoxne
Hall, Suffolk, executor, and directed him to dispose of all the lands which testator had purchased in Pal- grave. All his other lands he devised to his cousin, the Rev. Marmaduke Lawson, rector of Sproatley in Yorkshire. He gave to the Rev. Joseph Turner, Dean of Norwich, portraits of his mother and Mrs. Jessop. To Mrs. Wilkinson, late Dorothy Lawson, and widow of Andrew Wilkinson, Esq., of Borough Bridge in Yorkshire, pictures of his brother and himself. To the Rev. John Dixon, Rector of Tuddington, his MSS., and to Mrs. Marmaduke an enamel of his father by Zincke.
The Rev. Marmaduke Lawson, the brother of Mrs. Wilkinson, mentioned in the will, married Barbara Isabella, daughter of John Wilkinson of the Temple, who was brother of the Rev. James Wilkinson, Vicar of Sheffield, and of Borough Bridge Hall.
They had a son, Marmaduke, who, dying in 1823, H the Wilkinson estates devolved on his next brother." It is probable therefore that Mrs. Wilkinson (Dorothy Lawson) left no children, and that the Palgrave portraits art; now at one of Mr. Lawson s seats.*

The family of Sayer, or Sayers. had been resident at Pulham for many generations previous to their connection with the Palgrave family.
John Sayer of Pulham St. Mary the Virgin died there in 1583, in the 90th year of his age.
They bore, according to Blomefield, Gu., a chev. irm. between three seamews ppr. Among other posses- sions, they were lords of the manor of Pulham as were afterwards the Palgraves. The services rendered by the tenants in this manor were very remarkable. One held his lands by carnage, which service was performed by blowing a horn before the commencement of pro- ceedings in the lord's court, for which the lord had to pay him fourpence and give him a dinner. He had the liberty of keeping hounds, and following game anywhere within the manor. Another tenant held seven acres of land by being the lord's hangman. All other services were remitted, but whenever a thief was hanged in the manor, he was obliged to perform this hateful office by reason of his tenure.
A family of the name of Sayer flourished at Great Yarmouth in the
seventeenth century, but ultimately added a final s 9 making the name Sayers.
It became distinguished in the literary world by Dr. Frank Sayers, the German scholar and poet, and by James Sayers, the caricaturist.
They bore the same arms as Sayer of Pulham.

Henry Negus of Hoveton, connected by descents with several Yarmouth families, held the patent and sinecure office of Customer at the Port of Great Yarmouth. He was High Sheriff of Norfolk in 1740, and died in 1794, aged 86. His daughter married James Burkin Burroughes, Esq., of Burlingham, and took the Hoveton estates into that family.

Catherine, daughter and eventually sole heir of Austin Palgrave of Pulham, by Catherine Jay his wife, was born in 1734, and married in 1 76 1 the Reverend John Manclarke, Incumbent of Great Yarmouth.
The name of Manclarke was of long continuance at Great Yarmouth,, for Henry Manclarke was in 1627 admitted a Freeman on producing his father s Burgess Letter.
They were shipowners and merchants. Coleman Manclark filled the office of Mayor in 1770, and died in 1790, aged 76.
His youngest brother was the above-named Rev. John Manclarke, who succeeded Dr. Butler, Bishop of Oxford, in the incumbency of Great Yarmouth in 1 751, and retained it till his death. By the above marriage he left two sons, Thomas, who was Registrar of the Yarmouth Admiralty Court, and Austin Palgrave Manclarke, . who married in 1793 Catherine Cook, widow, of Rockland, and had two sons, Rev. William Palgrave Manthorpe of Pulham, who married at Blofield Susan daughter of Lieutenant Popplewell, R.N., and Mary Ann his wife, daughter of William Taylor, Esq., of Great Yarmouth ; and Richard Beatniffe Man- thorpe. The latter died in 1874, aged 77, leaving a son, the Rev. Richard Palgrave Manthorpe, now Vicar of St. James', Barrow-in-Furness.

Gray also addressed some of his letters to another Suffolk Rector, the Rev. Norton Nicholls of Lound, at whose picturesque seat at Blundeston, near Great Yarmouth, he was a frequent visitor, and where his favourite resorts are still pointed out.

HE name of Palgrave existed in Great Yarmouth early in the seventeenth century, Jeremy Palgrave of Great Yarmouth was a son of John Palgrave of Pulham St. Mary the Virgin and afterwards of Panxworth, co. Norfolk. He was baptised at Ranworth in 1603, and settled in Great Yarmouth, where he was thrice married and where he died in 1672. Ruth his daughter married Roger Godsale, but nothing more is known of any descendant. ( l ) — See Pedigree.
The branch which flourished at Great Yarmouth in the last century descended from the Palgraves of Pulham. Thomas Palgrave, who, as already stated, married Christian Sayer, had issue William Palgrave of Pulham St. Mary Magdalen, who married Elizabeth Randoll. They were the parents of Robert Palgrave {*) of Pulham St. Mary the Virgin, who died in 1659,
leaving a son, William Palgrave, who, having taken Holy Orders, was presented to the Rectory of Burgh near Woodbridge in Suffolk, then in the gift of the family of Rous of H'enham, now represented by the Earl of Stradbroke.
The Rector of Burgh, died in 1701, leaving an elder son, Robert Palgrave, who settled at Great Yarmouth and became the founder of the Coltishall family. 'I
Hfe married, first, Hannah, daughter of John Bacon ( 8 ) of Great Yarmouth, who died in 1727; and, secondly, Ann/. widow of Robert Dehrtison of Great Yarmouth. ( 4 ) He died in 1737, and was the first of his family buried at Great Yarmouth.
Byi his first marriage he had two sons, Thomas a
nd William. Thomas Palgrave served an apprenticeship at sea, during which he displayed so much courage and ability that* he was selected for. the command of a privateer then" fitting -out at Great Yarmouth. His first ex- pedition was unsuccessful, for meeting with a French vessel of superior size and armament he was compelled to surrender! After being detained for some time a prisoner fei Fraiice, he obtained his discharge, and was then employed by those who knew his ability to
superintend the building of another privateer, of which when completed he obtained the command. In this ship, however, he was again unsuccessful ; being compelled to yield to superior force.
Notwithstanding these mishaps he persevered, and having obtained the command of a third privateer, he made amends for former failures by capturing many rich prizes, and was enabled to retire with a sufficient fortune. He settled in London, where he was much esteemed and respected ; became one of the Elder Brethren of the Trinity House, and a Director of Greenwich Hospital. He was regarded as an authority on all naval matters, and, it is said, was consulted by Lord Sandwich when First Lord of the Admiralty.
Captain Palgrave's gold-headed stick and signet are still preserved in the family : both engraved with the arms of Palgrave. Among other family relics is a gold ring, inscribed, " The Gift of the Duke of Grafton." This ring is now in the possession of Thomas Palgrave, Esq., of Bryn-y-gynod, LlansaintfTraed. It is supposed to have been presented to Captain Palgrave by Charles, second Duke of Grafton, who died in 1757, aged seventy-eight.
Among other peculiarities, the old sailor was accus- tomed to keep in his bed-room, wherever he happened to be, a rope' ladder coiled up under his bed, by which
he could lower himself from the window in case of fire, and also a sword-stick containing a splendid rapier, with which to defend himself against thieves.
He purchased an estate at Coltishall in Norfolk, and resided in the Manor-house there, where he died in 1775, and was the first of his family buried at Coltishall.
William Palgrave, the second son of Robert Palgrave, was a merchant at Great Yarmouth, and surviving his brother died unmarried in 1780, aged sixty-two, and was buried at Coltishall.
Of the daughters of Robert Palgrave, Margaretta, the youngest, married John^ Miles ( 6 ) of Burgh Castle, Suffolk.
Thomas and William Palgrave, the two brothers, carried . on business in partnership at Coltishall and Great Yarmouth, as Corn Merchants, and used an office seal which is still in the possession of Mr. Thomas Palgrave of Bryn-y-gynog, of which an engraving is here given.
Thomas Palgrave married Mary, daughter of Thomas Manning {*) of Great Yarmouth in 1737, and by her left
an only surviving son, William Palgrave, who was born in I745-*C)
Under the will of his uncle, William Palgrave, he
succeeded to all the estates of the latter both at Coltis- hall and Great Yarmouth, and also had bequeathed to him all his uncle's personal estate, and he for many years made the Manor-house at Coltishall his residence. He also carried on an extensive business as a Ship- owner and Corn Merchant at Great Yarmouth, and was selected to attend upon the minister, Mr. Pitt, in conference on the subject of the trade of the town.
He took an active part in local politics and municipal affairs. He was a strong adherent of the Whig party at a time when Radicals and Liberals were unknown by those names, and he was a warm supporter of Thomas William Coke of Holkham (afterwards Earl of Leicester) in his frequent contests for the representation of Norfolk in Parliament, when that county was undivided, and when freeholders alone were entitled to vote. Mr. Palgrave was a frequent guest at the annual Holkham Sheep Shearing, ( 8 ) to which all the celebrated agriculturists
• When a child, the only one of a large family who survived infancy, he was sent to Pulham to be nursed, a circumstance which is confirmatory of the traditional connection of the Yarmouth family of Palgrave with that place. It is a singular fact that the lady he married was also the only one of ten children who lived to maturity.
5 of this and other counties were usually invited. He entered the Yarmouth Corporation in 1774, and filled the office of Mayor in 1782 and again in 1805. So popular was he that on one occasion the freemen pro- posed to nominate him as a candidate for the repre- sentation of the town in Parliament, an honour which he declined. He married 16th April, 1771, Elizabeth, only surviving child of Robert Thirkettle ( 9 ) of Flegg Burgh, Norfolk, by Elizabeth his wife, daughter of Samuel Tolver. Mrs. Palgrave died 19th October, 1805, aged fifty-seven, and was buried at Coltishall. Mr. Palgrave died at the Manor House there on 9th November, 1822, aged seventy-seven, and was buried in Coltishall church. ( 10 )
The annexed view of this church is from a private plate engraved by the late Mrs. Dawson Turner. The north-east view of the same is drawn and engraved by Winter.
The annexed portrait of William Palgrave (private plate) was engraved by the late Mrs. Dawson Turner from a painting commenced by Sir Thomas Lawrence and finished by Lane in 1816, now in the possession of Mr. Thomas Palgrave of Bryn-y-gynod.
By the above marriage he left three sons, viz. —
1. William, born 10th September, 1771, of whom presently.
2. Thomas, born 26th June, 1779; married Ann Hasting ; and died on the 3rd December, 1859, s.p.
3. Robert, born 12th July, 1780; ob. 2nd November, 1804, unmarried.
And six daughters, whose numerous descendants down to the present generation will be found presently.
Robert Palgrave, the third and youngest son of William Palgrave, early evinced a taste for learning, and was sent to the University of Cambridge, where he obtained the Gold Classical Medal, which is now in the possession of Mr. Simpson of Norwich. At college he formed a friendship with Thomas Denman, after- wards Solicitor General to Queen Caroline, and Lord Chief Justice of England, created Lord Denman in 1834.
For some youthful indiscretion they were, as an im- position, ordered to repeat three hundred verses from memory. In order to lighten the burden they resorted to the following expedient. Denman went up at the appointed time and repeated one hundred and fifty verses, when Palgrave stepped forward and repeated the remaining hundred and fifty. " Oh ! " says the impositor, 44 1 see how it is ; but you shall not escape so easily " another time."
Having accepted the appointment of Registrar of the High Court of Admiralty at Gibraltar, he died there of Yellow Fever in 1 804.

(i) P. 45. Palgrave of Yarmouth.
The name of Palgrave does not appear in any Yarmouth municipal record, except that we find, in 1618, John Palgrave was in possession of part of the site of the then dissolved convent of the Grey Friars at Great Yarmouth. Some account of this Franciscan Priory will be found in the Appendix to Manship's History of Great Yarmouth. A small portion of the cloister, now occupied as a dwelling, alone exists, and is represented in the annexed engraving.
In 1692, when it was expected that King William III. would land in Great Yarmouth on his return from an expedition to the Continent, a Mr. Palgrave of that day was sent express from Yarmouth to Sir Thomas Allin, a* Somerleyton, to beg the loan of his coach and horses for the accommo- dation of His Majesty. The King landed and was entertained at the house of Mr. Bailiff Robins on the South Quay.
(2) P. 45. Robert Palgrave.
Elizabeth Palgrave of Pulham, spinster, by her will, proved 20th June, 17 1 5, gave her nephew Robert Palgrave of Great Yarmouth a legacy of ^30 ; and to her two neices Elizabeth and Sarah, the two daughters of her then late brother, the Rev. William Palgrave, Rector of Burgh in Suffolk, ,£30 each, to be paid in the church porch of the parish of Pulham St. Mary Magdalen.
It was formerly the custom to appoint a precise place where bonds and other payments were to be made, and the church porch or market cross was usually selected.
(3) P. 46. Bacon.
John Bacon, by his will proved 7th May, 1728, devised his tenements in Great Yarmouth to Richard and John his sons, and bequeathed the residue of his personal estate to his four daughters, of whom Hannah, the wife of Robert Palgrave, was one.
(4) P. 46. DENNISON.
Robert Dennison of Great Yarmouth, gentleman, by his will proved 4th June, 1728, devised to Anne his loving wife all his real estate absolutely, and bequeathed to her all his personal estate, and made her sole executrix ; and appointed Edmund Lock of Norwich and John Colby of Great Yarmouth, supervisors.
(5) P. 48. Miles.
Sarah, daughter of John Miles by Margaretta (Palgrave) his wife, married Samuel Tolver of Great Yarmouth, by which means and sub- sequently, as will be seen, by the marriage of her nephew William Palgrave with Elizabeth Thirkettle, the Palgraves became connected with the Tolvers, and through them with many Yarmouth families ; among others, the Dowsons, Prestons, and Pagets.

" I had in 1816," says a memorandum in pencil on a MS. account of the Yarmouth family of Palgrave, " a small oval-shaped box inscribed James Manning, an old family relic. It stood on the chimney-piece in my lodgings at Yarmouth. It disappeared unaccountably." The Mannings of Yarmouth bore gu. a cross patonee between four trefoils or.

Residue to brother Thomas Manning.
(7) 1\ 49. Captain Thomas Palgrave.
Captain Thomas Palgrave purchased a messuage, then and still called the " Manor House," an ancient tenement called " Postills," and an estate of about >"0 acres of land at Coltishall, a parish and small town of some an- tiquity on the high road between Norwich and North Walsham. in the hundred of South Krptngham, Norfolk. This estate was then held, as it still is, of "the Provost and Scholars of the King's College of Blessed Mary and " St, Nicholas of Cambridge,* and had been acquired by that college in the eighteenth year of King Edward I\\ The rent, invariably reserved to the college on every renewal of the lease, was 27** 4/. yearly on the 10th iVtober, with one quarter v at and after the customary measure theretofore used in Cambridge of sixty-seven pints to the busheP of "good and mer-
* chantahle parky wheat, sweet, clean, and well dressed, to be approved by
* the Colkye Raker, and one and~a~half quarters of good and merchantable
* nvafe of barley, well dried and cleaned, approved by the CoDe$e Brewer.*
It was afc>o AH^itioned that the tenant should collect and pay over to the cvtftoj^ all the customary rents, as well of the manor of Cotezshafl as of their manor of Le$$an£hanv of which they w*re kwds. a?»d therefore the tenant of their Co&shaU estate was ;»^a£y ca3oi depacy^ord. and
for this service the provost and scholars covenanted to allow the tenant £4. 4s. T%d. "at such time and place as he should make account and " due payment of all the yearly rents of both the said manors." The Lease was renewable by custom but not of right, at the expiration of every twenty years, on payment of an agreed fine.
The Coltishall estate was in 1826 purchased of William Palgrave, Esq., the Collector, by William Danby Palmer, Esq., of Great Yarmouth, who died in 1828, aged 77, and who by will left it to his grandson, Robert Palmer Kemp, Esq., who resided at the Manor House until his death in 1873, leaving the property by will to his great-nephew, George William Danby Palmer, Esq., who now holds the same at a rack-rent, the college having declined to grant a renewal of the last lease.
(8) P. 49. Holkham Sheep-Shearing.
The Earl of Albemarle, in his u Fifty Years of my Life," says, " In 1820, '* I accompanied the Duke of Sussex for a second time to Holkham. The "occasion was the famous Annual Sheep-shearing. There were assembled "men from all parts of Europe to witness the practical working of a system " of husbandry of which Mr. Coke was considered the founder. We sat " down each day upwards of five hundred to dinner in the state apartments. u There were plenty of speeches, principally on the science of agriculture. "The dinner, an early one, was followed by a supper for the guests who " remained in the house. The Sheep-shearing lasted till the 6th of June."
(9) P. 50. THIRKETTLE.
Through this marriage the Palgraves again became connected with the Yarmouth families of Tolver and Paget. — See p. 63.
This name is of Danish origin. Thurketel was employed by King Canute, and commanded the Danes at Gorleston ; and under the orthography of Thurkylet, Thirtell, and down to Kettle, has prevailed in Yarmouth and its neighbourhood from an early period, but is now extinct. K NOTES TO PART IV.

WILLIAM PALGRAVE, the eldest son of William Palgrave, of Coltishall, and Eliza- beth (Thirkettle) his wife, was born on the ioth of September, 1771. The conflict in which this country became engaged with revolutionary France towards the close of the last century, led to the formation of Corps of Volunteers, of all arms, throughout the kingdom ; and in 1 794 some troops of mounted yeomanry were raised in Norfolk, so called as being principally composed of farmers finding their own horses.
This spirit of resistance to threats of invasion reached the town of Great Yarmouth, where a troop of "Yarmouth Gentlemen of Yeomanry" was formed, in which, on the 20th June, 1798, young Palgrave was commissioned by the Duke of Portland, as
K 2
Lieutenant; and in the gay uniform of his corps the young officer forthwith had a likeness taken, which is now in the possession of his eldest surviving son, Thomas Palgrave, Esq., of Bryn-y-gynog, and has been engraved expressly for this work by Mr. Joseph Brown. He is represented in the large white cravat then recently introduced by George, Prince of Wales. On the 1 8th of October, 1798, Mr. Palgrave was married at St. Paul's, Covent Garden, to Elizabeth, only daughter of Samuel Barker, Esq., of Great Yar- mouth. (*) They resided in George Street until 1 808. Mr. Barker had then purchased an old house on the South Quay, Great Yarmouth, which had previously been a tavern called the Three Crattcs, but which had been more recently converted into a bank- ing house, in which Messrs. Gurneys and Co., of Norwich, commenced their business at Yarmouth in 1775. This old building Mr. Barker demolished, and on its site erected a spacious mansion, which became the family residence of Mr. Palgrave until he re- moved from Yarmouth in 1826. The peculiarly toned white bricks with which this house was erected were made on the Holkham estate, and were a present from Thomas William Coke, Esq., of Holkham, after-
wards Earl of Leicester, with whom the Palgraves, father and son, had been on friendly terms.*
At the age of thirty-four Mr. Palgr&ve was appointed to the Collectorship of Customs at the Port of Great Yarmouth. Offices of this kind, then of considerable emolument, were at that time frequently obtained through political influence and without any previous experience in the service. It was, however, univer- sally admitted that Mr. Palgrave discharged his important duties with marked ability, and not only to the satisfaction of all with whom he had any official intercourse, but with the approbation of the heads of his department, then called "Commissioners of Customs," by whom Mr. Palgrave was usually selected to enquire and report upon irregularities occurring at any out-port in England, and on other official matters.
In 1824 he held an important Inquiry at Norwich, and for his services on that occasion was presented with a silver salver of the value of two hundred
* When the Duke of Sussex was at Holkham, a visit to Yarmouth was projected, and preparations were made at Mr. Palgrave's house for his reception. Great was the disappointment when Mr. Coke, Admiral Digby, and Lord Anson arrived without His Royal Highness, who was detained by an attack of gout
guineas (now in the possession of Thomas Palgrave, Esq.), inscribed as follows : — " Presented to William Palgrave, Esq., Collector of " Customs at the Port of Great Yarmouth, by the Mer- chants and Manufacturers of the City of Norwich, to " express their sense of his official conduct in regulating " the drawback granted to them by Government on "the Repeal of the Duties on Silk in April and May " 1824, on which occasion he united the most considerate "regard for the convenience of the Trade with the " most vigilant attention to the interests of the State." *
* When George IV. was returning from Scotland the royal yacht anchored unexpectedly in Yarmouth Roads on the 31st January, 1822. The then Mayor (John Danby Palmer, Esq.) was advised that as a mark of respect he ought to go on board. Accordingly, accompanied by the Town Clerk and some members of the Corporation and other friends, a boat was launched from the beach ; but as she approached the royal yacht, the Mayor's boat, like all others, was warned off. Captain Claxton, R.N., who was with his worship, in vain shouted " The Mayor ! the Mayor ! " but no notice was taken from the yacht except by repeated calls for " The Collector ! the Collector ! " Teste me ipso. No Collector was however there ; and after waiting a short time the anchor was weighed and the yacht proceeded. The mystery was solved by the next post, which brought an official letter to the Collector of Customs, giving him notice that it was intended to anchor in Yarmouth Roads, and requesting him to be prepared with a supply of milk and fresh provisions. Alas ! there were no telegrams in those days !
On another occasion, the services of Mr. Palgrave were required by royalty. When the Duke of Clarence, afterwards William IV., and his Duchess, afterwards Queen Adelaide, landed at Yarmouth, they went to the Angel Hotel in the Market Place, and in the evening the Collector of Customs was sent for, and was received by the Duchess (the Duke being
He was particularly fond of music, and was himself a skilful player on the violoncello. It was through his exertions that a musical society was established at Great Yarmouth in 1814, when a concert-room was erected at the rear of the Town House on the South Quay, which room was afterwards and still is used as a Public Library. This society flourished so long as Mr. Palgrave resided in Great Yarmouth and had the management of it, but when he left the town it fell away.
Mr. Palgrave, like his father, entered the Yarmouth Corporation, and, after filling the subordinate offices, was elected Mayor in 18 14, after the "Inquest" had "laid" from Monday morning till Wednesday afternoon before they could agree on their verdict. This delay arose from no dislike to Mr. Palgrave, who was uni- versally popular, but in consequence of a difference which then existed in the Corporation as to the nomi- nating of Commoners.
The mode of electing a Mayor of Great Yarmouth was so peculiar that some account of it may not be unacceptable here. It was in this wise. Annually on the anniversary of " the Decollation of St. John disabled by fatigue) and was informed that the royal party were short of money and required some assistance to reach London, which was of course readily supplied.
devise was on such occasions resorted to to mitigate the stringency of the custody.
To meet the difficulties of a protracted "lay" in 1813, the Inquest made a double return, naming Mr. Palgrave and Mr. Jacob Preston; but this verdict could not be received, and they were shut up again, and eventually nine of the twelve agreed to elect Mr. Preston.
When a sufficient number of Common Councilmen were not found to form an Inquest, the Mayor was accustomed to nominate " Commoners " from the Free- men to make up the number. This was supposed to give the Mayor an undue influence in the choice of a successor, and was therefore resisted by Mr. Palgrave and others.
In 1826 Mr. Palgrave was promoted to the Collector- ship at Dublin, then esteemed one of the prizes in the service, and he held this appointment until his death, which occurred at Dublin on the nth of January, 1838, being then in his sixty-eighth year. He was buried in the Mount Jerome Cemetery at St. Harold's Cross, Dublin.
His widow removed to Liverpool, where she died on the 23rd of March, 1863, aged eighty-three, and was buried in the family vault at Mount Jerome Cemetery, Dublin.
There is a portrait of Mr. Palgrave (the Collector) by Samuel Lane, and also a portrait of Mrs. Palgrave by J. P. Davis, both of which are in the possession of Thomas Palgrave, Esq., of Bryn-y-gynog.

(1) P. 68. Barker.
Samuel Barker, the father of Mrs. Palgrave, was descended from a family of that name long resident at Lowestoft. In 1643 Sir Edward Barker was, with others, taken prisoner by Oliver Cromwell at Low- estoft, and carried to his head-quarters at Somerleyton Hall in Suffolk.
John Barker, fishing merchant at Lowestoft, was a sufferer by the great fire which happened there in 1644.
Samuel Barker, an eminent merchant and " a great friend of the poor " at Lowestoft, married Margaret Arnold, of an old Lowestoft family, by whom he had two sons, John and Samuel. The former was one of the Elder Brethren of the Trinity House and a Director of Greenwich Hospital. He acquired a considerable fortune, and died in London in 1787, aged 8o» and was buried with much funereal pomp at Lowestoft in a mausoleum in the churchyard there, for the erection of which he had bequeathed jCs°° and also ;£iooo, the interest of which was to be applied in keeping the same in repair, an obligation which is still observed. For many years previous to his death, he distributed annually ,£250 among poor and infirm sailors, their widows and children. There is a portrait of him painted by John Jones (but erroneously ascribed to Sir Joshua Reynolds) which represents the old gentleman attired in black velvet, seated at a table on which are maps and papers ; and in the background is seen the entrance to a harbour.
This picture was engraved at the expense, it is said, of 500 guineas, and a
limited number of impressions only were taken before the plate was destroyed, so that the prints have become extremely rare.
The picture itself was discovered in London many years ago by Mr. John Barker, Mrs. Palgrave's brother, and by him brought to his house at Norwich, where it continued until his death in 1855 > anc * it remained the property of his widow, until it was purchased by Mr. Charles George Palgrave, and it now hangs in the hall of Shaddingfield Lodge, Great Yarmouth.
John Barker of Lowestoft had an only sister Elizabeth, who married Richard Church. They had a son, John Barker Church, of whose extra- ordinary career, both in this country and in North America (where he had gone before the breaking out of the War of Independence) a full account has been published.
Church bore, Gu. a fesse or y in chief three sinister gauntlets ppr.
Samuel Barker, the other son of Samuel Barker of Lowestoft, settled in Great Yarmouth as a merchant and shipowner, and filled the office of Mayor in 1800, and in that capacity had the honor of entertaining Lord Nelson on his landing at Great Yarmouth after the victory of Aboukir. There the hero met the Mayor's daughter, and in a letter to Mr. Barker in the following year, he says, " I beg my respects to Mrs. Palgrave."
After the Battle of Copenhagen, when Nelson's flag was flying on board the 67. George in Koige Bay, he addressed the following letter to Mr. Barker.
" St. George, Koige Bay, April 27th, 1801. " My dear Sir,
" I feel truly sensible of your kind congratulations on the success of His Majesty's arms ; the spirit and zeal of the Navy, I never saw higher than in this fleet, and if England is true to herself she may bid defiance to Europe. The French have always in ridicule called us a nation of shopkeepers, so I hope we shall always remain, and like other shopkeepers, if our goods are better than those of any other country, and we can afford to sell them cheaper, we may depend upon our shop being well resorted to. If I land at Yarmouth, I shall most assuredly pay my personal respects to you, not only as a Gentleman who has shewn me great civilities, but also as the Chief Magistrate of a borough of which I have the honour to be a freeman.
I beg you will have the goodness to present my best respects and good wishes to every individual of the corporate body, and believe me, my dear
sir, your truly obliged n
" Samuel Barker, Esq.,
" Mayor of Great Yarmouth, Norfolk."
In July following Nelson was compelled on account of his health to resign his command, and again landed at Great Yarmouth. After remaining some time in the town he proceeded to his house at Merton in Surrey, which the hero had then recently acquired. From that place he wrote to Mr. Barker, saying, " I never shall forget all your goodness to me ; and if ever I am " placed in a situation to shew my gratitude I trust I shall not be found " wanting."
In acknowledgment of the hospitality of Mr. Barker to naval officers, Captain Hardy presented him with a model of the Admiral's barge, with the figure of Nelson seated at the stern, and rowed by the jolly tars of that day, with their ample pigtails. It remained in Mr. Barker's possession until his death, but what subsequently became of it is not known.
As an example of the social habits which prevailed at the commencement of the present century, it may be mentioned that Mr. Barker, when mayor, gave as usual his Inauguration Dinner at the Town Hall on Michaelmas Day, to as many guests as the tables would accommodate. He was also Captain of a Company of Volunteers, who were entertained else- where ; but when a sufficient number of guests had left the Hall at night, the Volunteers " marched in, preceded by their band, and caroused " till three or four o'clock in the morning."
Mr. Barker died in 1812, leaving two sons, the Rev. Samuel Loney Barker, who was run over and killed in the streets of London, and John Barker, who (being deaf) was accidentally knocked down and killed in the streets of Norwich.
Barker of Lowestoft and Yarmouth bore, Barry of ten or and sa., over all a bend gu. An emblazonment of their arms on vellum was presented by Sir William Woods, Garter, to the above-named John Barker, Esq., of Norwich.
(2 P. 74. William Parr Palgrave,
The eldest son of the Collector was named after the celebrated Dr. Parr, who then resided at Norwich, and with whom the Collector and his father were intimate. The doctor occasionally paid a visit at Coltishall, one bond of union with the Collector being a mutual fondness for tobacco. The doctor, it is said, always indulged in a pipe after dinner, and before com- mencing operations used, whoever happened to be present, to desire the servant to bring his " smoking coat.*
(3) P. 74. Mrs. Ker,
Was named after Miss Matilda Church of Great Yarmouth, her maternal cousin, who by her will left her godchild a legacy of ^2000.
(4) P. 75. William Barker Palgrave,
The second but eldest surviving son of William Palgrave the Collector. When his father was selected for Dublin, he commenced business in that city as a merchant and shipowner; and his brother Charles George Palgrave joining him, the firm became W. B. and C. Palgrave and Co., and their extensive shipping and mercantile transactions necessitated the establishment of a house in London.
Ireland is much indebted to this enterprising firm for opening out a direct steam communication with many foreign countries ; and they are well known for their early and large importations of cattle from abroad into Ireland and^England.
There is a portrait of Mr. Charles George Palgrave at Shaddingfield Lodge.
(5) P. 75. Thomas Palgrave,
The third but now the eldest surviving son of the Collector, was destined to the profession of the law, and served his articles of clerkship at Great Yarmouth, with Thomas Fowler Steward, Esq. (who still survives). He left his native town on the appointment of his father to the Collectorship of Customs at Dublin, and established himself at Liverpool, where he ob- tained a large and lucrative practice as a solicitor and notary public ; after
enjoying which for thirty-five years, he retired, and purchased an estate in North Wales, in the valley of the Conway, where he erected a house called Bryn-y-gynog for his own residence, and was made a county magistrate.
(6) P. 75. WOODHOUSE,
There was a family of this name which, according lo Elomefield, held considerable possessions at Waxham in Norfolk, and bore Quarterly as. and erm. t in the first quarter a leopard's head or; but which family was quite distinct from the great Norfolk family of WODEHOUSE of Kimberley. —See Blomefield's Norfolk, vol. ix. p. 353.
Henry Alderson Woodhouse, who married Mary Elizabeth Palgrave, was the son of Ollyctt Woodhouse, Esq., of the Temple, Barrister -at- law, who was Judge Advocate in Bombay, by Harriett, his wife, who was a daughter of Joseph Atkinson, of Bradley Mills, Lancashire.
The mother of Mr. Ollyett Woodhouse was a daughter of James 1 of Lowestoft, and consequently a sister of Robert Alderson, Esq., Recorder of Norwich, Ipswich, and Great Yarmouth. Mrs. Woodhouse had three other brothers,— James Alderson, the eldest, attained to con- siderable eminence as a physician at Norwich, where he died in 1S48 ; Thomas, who settled at Newcastle ; and John, a physician at Hull, where he died in 1829, aged seventy-two, leaving a son, Sir James Alderson, M,D.
M 2
Amelia, the only child of Dr. James Alderson of Norwich, married John Opie, the celebrated portrait painter, who died in 1807. She was a well-known authoress, and published White Lies and other works, and continued to reside at Norwich, in a house at a corner of a new street leading from London Street to the Castle Ditches (called in her honour Opie Street), until her death.
Recorder Alderson married Elizabeth, only child of Thomas Hurry, Esq., of Great Yarmouth, by Isabella his wife, daughter of John Hall of Whitby, by whom the recorder had a son, Sir Edward Hall Alderson, one of the Barons of the Court of Exchequer, who, by Georgina Catherine his wife, daughter of the Rev. Edward Drew, of Broadhants, Devon, had, with other children, Georgina Caroline, now Marchioness of Salisbury.
Serjeant Firth, when the Recordership of Great Yarmouth became vacant by the resignation of Mr. Joddrell, became a candidate for that office; but Mr. Alderson, although not coinciding with a majority of the corpo- ration in politics, was elected, when, it is pretended, he gave vent to his satisfaction in some lines beginning with —
" Recorder I am, but I don't care a d
" For the mayor and the whole corporation."
Lionel Leighton Woodhouse, who, as seen in the pedigree, married Harriette Clara Woodhouse, his cousin, was son of Richard Woodhouse, Esq., of London (by Harriet Sarah his wife, daughter of Henry Thomas Williams by Honoria Torriano his wife), an elder brother of Ollyett Wood- house, whose eldest brother was Thomas Woodhouse, of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, well known for his eccentricities. Mr. Robert Wood- house, of Corpus Christi College, another brother, was Professor of As- tronomy at Cambridge. He married a daughter of Wilkins, the distinguished architect.
(7) P. 75. Robert Palgrave,
The fourth son of William Palgrave and Elizabeth (Barker) his wife was named after his uncle, the Registrar of Gibraltar already mentioned. He was educated for the medical profession at the University of Dublin, where he took the degree of M.D. He commenced practice at Liverpool, but his early death prevented his attaining the eminence he sought He instituted numerous researches into his family history, and made extensive genealogical collections.
(8) P. 75. John Palgrave,
The fifth son of the Collector, entered early into the same public service as his father, and was attached to the Custom House, first at Dublin and afterwards in London, where his intelligence and assiduity- gave promise of promotion ; but unfortunately becoming incapacitated by ill health, he was compelled to leave the service at an early age, and retired to Great Yarmouth, "here he died in 1868.
(9) P. 76. Quintin Fleming,
Eldest surviving son of Nicholas Fleming of Dublin, descended from the old Irish family of Slanc, Earls of Slane in the county of Mealh, a title now extinct or in abeyance. He claims to represent that family.
This house on the South Beach, Great Yarmouth, now the property and residence of Samuel Nightingale, Esq., of which an engraving is here given, was erected by James Cuddon, Esq., of Lincoln's Inn, and in 1862 it was the temporary residence of H.R.H. the Prince of Wales, when he paid a visit to Great Yarmouth to join the Norfolk Militia Artillery, of which regiment His Royal Highness had then recently been appointed Colonel by the Queen.

The ancestors of the Turners of Yarmouth were small landed proprietors at Kcnnington, a village in Norfolk now united to Mulbarion, the property (purchased in 1570) descending from father to son for many genera- tions, until the present century, when it was sold. The founder of the Yarmouth family was Francis Turner, who was bred to the law, and having settled in Yarmouth, married the daughter of Thomas Godfrey, then Town Gerk, and eventually succeeded to that office in 1710, but died at the early age of 38 in 1719, leaving a son, the Rev. Francis Turner, who by Sarah his wife, daughter of James Dawson, Esq , had issue (t) Francis, an eminent surgeon; (2) Joseph, who was Senior Wrangler in 1768, Master of Pembroke College, Cambridge, and ultimately
Dean of Norwich ; (3) Richard, who through the influence of the Dean became Incumbent of Great Yarmouth ; and (4) James, the youngest, who became the resident partner of the firm of Gurneys and Co. of Norwich, when they first opened a bank at Great Yarmouth. The latter, by Elizabeth his wife, daughter of John Cotman, Esq., (of an old Yarmouth family) was the father of Dawson Turner, Esq., who married Mary, the eldest daughter of William Palgrave, Esq.
Dawson Turner was born at Great Yarmouth in 1775, an< * was entered at Pembroke College, Cambridge, under the care of his uncle, the then Master ; but his father dying in the following year he was compelled to leave the University to supply his father's place in the bank. Business could but slightly interfere with his devotion to literature, and the name of Dawson Turner soon became known especially for his acquirements in Botany, in furtherance of whicli science he published some valuable works. In 1797 he was elected a Fellow of the Linmcan Society. Few individuals have been more distinguished by literary honors, cither domestic or foreign. He became a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, the Royal Society, and others of less importance, whilst the foreign societies into which he was elected arc too numerous to mention. He formed an extensive library, was indefatigable in the collection of autographs, and was possessed of a small but choice collection of pictures. His best known illustrated books are Blomefield's History of Norfolk, 1 1 vols., swelled into 70, now in the Library of the British Museum. He also wrote and published A Tour in Normandy, and other works. In 1848 he issued his Sepulchral Remin- iscences, a very useful work for local genealogists, a new edition of which, extending to the churchyards and cemeteries down to the present time, is much required.
The Turners of Yarmouth used for their arms, Sa. f a chev. erm. three mill rials or, on a chief arg, a lion pass. or. These arms appear on the family pew in Mulbarton church.

(3) Page 91. Sir William Jackson Hooker.
He claimed to be descended from the Secretary of Ireland who was a con- tributor to Hollingshed's Chronicles, and was of the same family of which Richard Hooker, author of the Ecclesiastical Polity \ was a member. He was the only surviving son of Joseph Hooker, Esq., of Exeter. He received his education at the Grammar School at Norwich. His turn for natural history early developed itself, and he made many botanical tours, the most important of which was that in Iceland, of which he gave an account in his Tour in Iceland, which was printed at Keymer's press, in Great Yarmouth. On returning from Iceland he narrowly escaped a terrible death. The ship on board which he was a passenger caught fire, and his only means of escape was the chance of a passing vessel. His father-in-law, Mr. Dawson Turner, proved a valuable and able assistant to him in his unwearied literary labours. He first settled at Halesworth in Suffolk, and in 1820 he accepted the Regius Professorship in the University at Glasgow, where he received the degree of LL.D. Here he published many important botanical works, and formed that Herbarium which became the finest in Europe. In 1841 he was ap- pointed to the Directorship of the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew, which he retained until his death. The honour of knighthood was conferred on him in 1836 in consideration of his scientific services. He was a D.C.L. of Oxford, and a Fellow of most of the scientific societies. He died at Kew at the advanced age of 81. He was succeeded in the Directorship of the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew by his son, Joseph Dalton Hooker, Esq., M.D., C.B., who on the 2nd of June, 1877, was gazetted a Knight Commander of the Most Exalted Order of the Star of India.
The annexed portraits of Sir William and Lady Hooker were engraved by the late Mrs. Dawson Turner (private plates) ; that of Sir W. J. Hooker from a drawing by J. S. Cotman ; that of Lady Hooker from a drawing by T. Phillips, R.A.

(S) Page 91. Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker, K.CS.I.
Joseph Dalton Hooker was born at Halesworth, Suffolk, on the 30th of June, 1 8 17. He was educated at the High School and University of Glasgow, and having imbibed from childhood a strong predilection for natural-history pursuits, collecting and examining, as opportunity offered, plants, minerals, and insects, his interest in such subjects was largely increased by the society which he met at his father's house ; for the rooms of Professor Hooker at Glasgow were the resort of scientific travellers, especially those engaged in arctic exploration. Among the associates of his youth were Franklin, Parry, Ross, Richardson, and indeed travellers from all parts of the world. Hence the reading of books of travel became a passion with him, and at the age of twenty-two he accompanied, officially as Assistant-Surgeon, but in reality as Naturalist, the famous expedition of Sir James Clark Ross, for the purpose of investigating the phenomena of terrestrial magnetism in the south circumpolar seas. And so actively did Hooker avail himself of the opportunities afforded by his visits to the various antarctic Islands, in addition to those in the vicinity of the Australian continent, that a grant of ^1000 was awarded by the Government to assist in the description and publication of his collected specimens. The botanical results of this adventurous voyage, worked out by Dr. Hooker in a manner quite unprecedented for its picturesque and philosophical detail, were pub- lished in six quarto volumes of closely-printed pages, illustrated with 500 coloured plates.
On the return of Dr. Hooker to England, the describing of his plants, coupled with the arduous duty of collating his specimens with those collected by previous voyagers, preserved in the herbarium of the British Museum, occupied the principal share of his attention until 1846, when he accepted the appointment of Botanist to the Geological Survey. His researches in connection with the duties of this office were directed more especially to the coal plants, and he contributed some valuable papers on the subject to the publications of that institution.
Dr. Hooker having acquired a knowledge of the botany of the temperate zones, now felt a desire to explore that of the tropics. In 1847 he under- took an important botanical mission to the Sikkim and Nepal Himalayas ; his chief object being to collect facts for a geographical distribution of plants. He sent home rich collections both of dried and living plants, amongst the latter of which must especially be mentioned a magnificent series of new Rhododendrons, which now form conspicuous ornaments of our gardens and
greenhouses. From drawings and specimens of these, transmitted by him to England, Sir William Hooker edited a superb folio volume, entitled Rhododendrons of the Sikkhn-Himalaya.
In the Autumn of 1849 he was joined by Dr. Campbell, the political resident at Darjceling. Ti'^eiher they crossed the jealously-guarded frontier of Tibet, remaining two days on the forbidden grounds north of the snowy range. On their return into Sikkim, the natives of that country, with the short-sighted policy of semi-civilized people, seized and threw them into prison, thinking thus to extort a more favourable treaty from Dr. Campbell. For six weeks they were detained ; after which their return to Darjeeling was connived at. the natives being dismayed at the intelligence that an English force was advancing to their rescue. In the course of this journey Dr. Hooker surveyed the territory of Sikkim, from the plains of India to the frontier of Tibet, and from Bhotnn in the east to Nepal in the west, This map IH published by the Trigonometrical Survey of India.
On his return to England in 1851 he published a narrative of his expe- dition, under the title of Himalayan Journals, or Notes of a Naturalist in Bengal, the Sikkim and Nepal Himalaya, the Khasia Mountains, &•£.
In 1856 the botanical establishment at Kew, with its museums, herbarium, and library, had so largely increased, that an appointment was created for him under his father as Assistant-Director. He became a Vice-President of the Royal and Linncan Societies, and it is in the Transactions of these Societies, especially the latter, that his principal botanical papers have been published, His most important work is a new Genera Plantarum, written in conjunction with Mr. Bent ham, on the plan of Endlicher's famous work, of which the first Part appeared in 1862. He was also one of the authors engaged In the preparation of a valuable series of the Floras of the British Colonies, now publishing under the authority of the GoTCTMnenfc He has also published The Student's Flora of the British Islands, the most scientific account of British plants which has hitherto appeared. He is M.D. of Glasgow, C.B., D.C.L. Oxford, LL.D, Cambridge and Glasgow, Correspondent of the Institute of France, and Member and Correspondent of all the scientific acadamies on the Continent and in America. He was elected President of the Royal Society in 1872, and in this capacity took the chair at the Norwich meeting; and in 1877 finally appointed a Knight of the Most Exalted Order of the Star of India.
(6) Page 91. Sir Francis Palgrave.
At an early age he showed signs of the ability which distinguished him in later years. When but eight years old, he translated the Battle of the Frogs and Mice, attributed to Homer, from Latin into French ; and before he had attained his twentieth year he had contributed many articles to the minor periodicals of the day, and, not many years later, he became a regular contributor to the Edinburgh and Quarterly Reviews. Being one of the Municipal Corporation Commissioners, he was knighted in 1831, and received the order of the White Horse of Hanover, in acknowledgment of his contributions to constitutional and parliamentary history. About that time he suggested to Lord Spencer a scheme for collecting the public muniments, which were scattered in many different repositories, under one management. This was effected by his energy, and in 1838 he was appointed Deputy Keeper of the Public Records, which were, by his exertions, systematically arranged and placed in the well-planned repository in the Rolls Court, Chancery Lane, where they were rendered as secure as possible, and can be easily inspected.
The historical works which gained him an European reputation were The Rise and Progress of the English Commonwealth, published in 1832; an historical story called The Merchant and Friar, published in 1837 ; and The History of Normandy and England, published in 1851, which he was unhappily prevented by failing health from completing on his original plan.
He died at Hampstead 8th July, 1861, aged 72.
On his marriage with Elizabeth, second daughter of Dawson Turner, Esq., he, with the assent of William Palgrave, Esq., the then head of the family, assumed by Royal license the name of Palgrave, and obtained from the Herald's College the following coat of arms : Per pale as. and gu. a lion rampant arg., on a canton or an escarbuncle of the second ; and for the crest, on a wreath of the colours between two branches of palms ppr. a leopard's head affronte'e erased arg., charged on the neck with an escarbuncle sa. t with the motto " Laudans invocabo Dominum."

Sir Robert Harry Inglis, Bart., M.P. for the University of Oxford, was his Godfather. In 1871 he published The Local Taxation of Great Britain atid Ireland, and in 1873 Notes on Banking of Great Britain and Ireland, Sweden, Denmark, and Hamburg : and, principally in recognition of the latter work, he in 1874 received from the King of Sweden the Order of Vasa. In 1875 ^ e was appointed one of the three representatives of the English Issuing Country Bankers, to give evidence on their behalf before the " Select Committee of the House of Commons on Banks of Issue." His evidence will be found in the proceedings of that committee. He has no
edited for some years the Banker? Almanack and the Banker? Magazine. In 1877 he acquired a part ownership of the Economist, and became financial editor of that newspaper.

' Son of the Rev. William Gunn, Rector of Irstead. He is President of the Geological Society of Norwich, and has contributed many Papers to that science, to which he is devotedly attached. During his residence at Irstead he made a collection of geological remains found principally at Bacton, near his rectory, on the coast of Norfolk. He presented them to the Norwich Museum, and they are now deposited in the "Gunn Room " there. The Rev. William Gunn was the clergyman who officiated at the marriage of Prince Augustus Frederick, afterwards Duke of Sussex, with the Lady Augusta Murray, at Rome. In the latter years of his life he was Vicar of Gorleston, and died in 1841, aged 91. He published several well-known works on art.

(16) Page 96. Dr. Rigby. He was born at Chowbent, near Leigh, in Lan- cashire, and bore, Arg. a cross botonne* sa. charged with five mullets of the first.
He settled as a physician at Norwich, where he soon acquired a large practice, and where he married, firstly, Miss Beevor, by whom he had two daughters. Dr. Rigby's sister married Dr. Parry of Bath, and became the mother of Sir Edward Parry, the Arctic voyager, who married a sister of the first Lord Stanley of Alderley, and was the father of Dr. Parry, now Bishop Suffragan of Dover.
By his marriage, secondly, with Miss Palgrave he became the father of twelve children, the last four being at one birth, Dr. Rigby being then 70 years of age and his wife 40. In celebration of this event the Corporation of Norwich presented him with a piece of plate.
Dr. Rigby was an intimate friend of Thomas William Coke of Holkham, created Earl of Leicester on the accession of Queen Victoria, and took great interest in agriculture, upon which subject he was a prolific writer. Dr. Rigby was buried in the churchyard at Framingham Earl.
" A monument to Rigby do you seek ? On every side the whispering woodlands speak ; " alluding to the extensive plantations made by him.
His widow died at Slough in 1872, aged 95, leaving numerous des- cendants in the fourth generation.
A family named Rigby, but not related it is believed to the Norfolk family, resided at Mistley Hall, in Essex.*
Dr. Rigby filled the office of Mayor of Norwich in 1805. He was author of An Essay on Animal Heat, and on The Agriculture of Framingham and Ho Ik ham. There is an engraved portrait of him.
His eldest son was a physician of acknowledged eminence in London, succeeding Dr. Gooch in the Lying-in Hospital, and was named Examiner in Midwifery in succession to Sir Charles Locock, and published several medical works, but his career of usefulness was cut short by an untimely death in 1861, and he left no issue male.

TO ALL AND SINGULAR to whom these Presents shall come, Sir Albert William Woods, Knight, Garter, Principal King of Anns, Rodert Laurie, Esquire, Clarenceux King of Arms, and Walter Aston Blount, Esquire, Norroy King of Arms, send Greeting. Whereas Thomas Palgrave of Bryn-y-gynog in the Parish of Lansaintffraid in the County of Denbigh, Esquire, in the Commission of the Peace for the said County, eldest surviving son of William Palgrave, formerly Collector of Revenue and Customs of the Ports of Great Yarmouth and afterwards of Dublin, deceased, hath represented unto The Most Noble Henry, Duke of Norfolk, Earl Marshal, and Hereditary Marshal of England, that the Pedigree of his Family has been duly recorded in the College of Arms, and by which it is shewn that he is the seventh in descent from William Palgrave of Pulham St. Mary Magdalen in the County of Norfolk, whose elder Brother, Thomas Palgrave, died on the Sixth day of March One thousand six hundred and thirty-eight, and to whose memory a monument still exists in the Church of St Mary Magdalen, Pulham, having thereon the Arms of the Family of Palgrave, namely, a Lion rampant, and a Crescent for difference. That the said Arms have been borne and used by him and his direct Ancestors but they do not appear to have been duly registered to them in the College of Arms, he is desirous that such registration should be made and therefore requested the favor of His Grace's Warrant for Our granting and confirming the same in such manner as may be proper to be borne by him and his descendants and by the other descendants of his father the said William Palgrave, deceased, according to the Laws of Arms.

The variations in the Palgrave arms referred to in the note, page 5, and the many ajmorial illustrations with which the monuments at Northwood Barningham are embellished, seem to require special notice and explana- tion ; and the more so as some of these armorials, as will be presently shown, are either entirely erroneous or at least irreconcileable with the known descents and alliances of the family.
As to the Palgrave lion, it has already been, and is here again suggested, that it was the bearing of Hetherset, and adopted by the Palgraves on the marriage with the heiress. In the Visitation of Norfolk in 1563 (College of Arms, G 1, 79 b ) the pedigree, entered by Clement Palgrave, has for arms, Dexter, quarterly, 1 and 4, Azure, a lion rampant gardant or, for Palgrave; 2 and 3, Gules, a maunche ermine, obviously for Hetherset, to which name I find this coat assigned in the books, as well as to that of Berningham (see ante, p. 4). Thus it would appear that the Palgraves adopted at that time a quarterly coat, as from the Hethersets. The impalement (sinister) is Reade. It may here be mentioned that in two collections of Norfolk arms (College of Arms, 2 G 13, 6j h y and H 16, 63) this quarterly coat, impaling Reade, is in error entered as that of John Palgrave.
In the Norfolk Visitation of 161 3 (College of Arms, C 15, 27 b ) Robert Palgrave of Thuxton (see ante, p. 30) entered his pedigree. The quarterly coat is allowed to him, with a crescent for difference, but the lion is argent, not or, and he impales Pigeon.
In a collection of Yorkshire arms (College of Arms, D 9, 42** and 43) Palgrave is entered alone and impaled with Pennington (see the marriage, ante, p. 17), and in these instances we have the variation of the lion {argent) being rampant and not gardant.
So far the Heralds. We will now see how the Palgraves by degrees piled up arms for themselves. The brass to Henry Palgrave, who died 11 Oct.
15 16, has four shields — 1, Palgrave, the lion rampant and gardant ; 2, Pal- grave impaling Glemham (wife of Henry) ; 3, Palgrave impaling (device defaced, but probably Yelverton, Henry's mother) ; and 4, Glemham im- paling Brandon (Eleanor, daughter of Sir William Brandon, and mother of the wife of Henry Palgrave.)
By 1611, when John Palgrave died and a monument was raised, they had, in imitation of the elaborate armorial display of that age, by hook or by crook, accumulated nine quarterings, which, in a shield, surmounted the monument, and (though making allowances for original mistakes in the representation or marshalling of the coats, and for subsequent wrong colour- ing) it is impossible to read these quarters from any light of the pedigree. John Palgrave had a right to quarter Hetherset, Bemingham, Sturmer, Yelverton, and Glemham, with any other arms those may have " brought in," but instead of this we have an impossible shield, — 1 and 9, Azure, a lion rampant (not gardant) and argent for Palgrave; 2, Azure, a lion ram- pant gardant or, query for Hethersett; 3, Gules, a maunche ermine, query for Berningham; 4, Gules, a chevron argent between three plates, which coat is entered to the name of Stormyn, and may be meant for Sturmer; or, if wrongly coloured, for Glemham, whose arms were Or, a chevron gules between three torteaux ; ^ Ermine^ a chief indented gules, is on the books to the Sieur de Morteigne and to Hengrave and Brome. Its introduction here cannot be accounted for. The same observation applies to 6, Argent, a fess between two chevrons sable, which is given to the name Honington; 7, Sable, two chevronels or, does not appear to be a known coat ; 8, Per pale dancette'e argent and sable, six wrens, two, two, and two counterchanged, is the coat of Wren, but why here is not known.
The monument of John Palgrave contains eight other shields. The five surrounding the half-circle, on which is the inscription to his memory, are as follows, Palgrave in each case having the argent lion, and rampant only : —
1. Palgrave impaling Saunders (wife of John), Sable, a chevron ermine between three bulls' heads cabossed argent.
2. Palgrave impaling Willoughby (wife of Sir Austin), Or, two bars gules charged (two and one) with three maunches ermine,
3. Ridlesden, Argent y a chevron between three cross crosslets fitche'e sable, impaling Palgrave. (Elizabeth, daughter of John).
4. Jermy, Argent, a lion rampant gardant gules, impaling Palgrave. (Jane, daughter of John).
5. Dexter, a blank; sinister, Palgrave. (Intended for Margaret, daughter of John, shortly afterwards married to John Pope, LL.D.)
The three other shields on the base are : — 1, Palgravc impaling Glemham (wrongly coloured) ; 2, Palgrave impaling Yelverton, Argent, three lions rampant and a chief gules ; and 3, Palgrave impaling Argent, a chevron azure between three squirrels sejant ppr. ; a coat assigned to Holt, but the presence of which here is unaccountable.
The next in chronological order of the monuments is that to Margaret Pope, the daughter of John Palgrave, who died in 1621. Here again we have another heraldic puzzle. The monument is surmounted of a shield with six quarters in the dexter (presumably belonging to Pope, but into which it is not necessary to enter), and twelve in the sinister for his wife Margaret She thus added four to her father's shield, viz., Argent \ on a bend sable three mullets of the field ; a coat which appears elsewhere on the monument, and is only found to the name of Entwistle, 2, Sadie, a chevron between three cross crosslets argent; which cannot be accounted for, except it is a mis-coloured representation of Ridlesden. 3, Sable, a fess between two chevrons or; which is assigned to the name of Gerbridge. And 4, Sable, a cross engrailed or; which is the coat of Ufford, but may " have been intended for Willoughby. It should be observed that the colour- ing of the sixth quarter in this achievement, Azure, a fess between two chevrons argent, differs from that on the shield of John Palgrave before described.
The six other shields on this monument are as follows : —
1. Palgrave (lion not gardant) impaling Saunders.
2. Palgrave impaling the three mullets on the bend, as in the shield above.
3. Pofie, Or, three chevronels gules, on a canton of the last a mullet of the field.
4. Palgrave.
5. Palgrave impaling Azure, a bend within a bordure engrailed argent; a coat borne by no family connected with the Palgraves.
And 6. Glemham impaling Brandon.
In 1639 Sir Austin Palgrave died, and a monument was raised to him, which is surmounted by an achievement of thirteen quartcrings ; the twelve as on the monument of his sister Margaret Pope, and an extra one (the second, and immediately following Palgrave), viz., Gules, a bend between three escallops or; arms which, entered to IVignall or IVigenall, would seem, like many others, to be introduced without any ground or pretence whatever.
Of the six minor shields on this monument we find— 1, Palgrave alone. 2, Palgrave impaling a chevron between three roundels, intended for
Sturmer or Glemham. 3, Palgrave impaling the three mullets on the bend above named. 4, Palgrave impaling Yelverton. 5, Palgrave impaling Saunders, And 6, Palgrave impaling Willoughby (the three maunches on the two bars).
Sir John Palgrave, first baronet, who doubtless authorized this monument to his father's memory, entered his pedigree at the Visitation in 1664 (College of Arms, D 20, 170). The official return of the arms allowed at this Visi- tation are entered in a separate volume (College of Arms, D 2i # , 11), and here, to the credit of the Heralds, the simple coat of Palgrave only (and as u Azure, a lion rampant argent") is entered for Sir John ; but at the foot of the pedigree a "tricking" is added of the thirteen quarters on the then recently-erected monument to Sir Austin, but without names or other usual indications of official recognition. They may have purposed identifying them on their return to their records, but they remain to this day, and will probably always remain, an assemblage of fanciful heraldry.
It should be stated, however, that in an exemplification of the twelve quarterings of the Pastons (College of Arms, Philp 34, ioo, b ), the following, as named and numbered, occur : —
7. Ermine, a chief indented gules, H engrave.
8. Argent, a fess between three crescents gules, Watsam (not borne by Palgrave.)
9. Azure, a lion rampant gardant or, Hetherset; and,
10. Sable, a fess between two chevrons or, Gerbridge*
Other variations in the Palgrave arms should be noted. John Pagrave of Coleford, co. Somerset, bore, Azure, a lion statant argent; and for crest, A rhinoceros or (College of Arms, Misc. Gts. 1, 117, and 4, 138).
Gules, a lion rampant gardant or, collared argent, debruised by a bendlet azure, is entered to Simon Paldegrave (College of Arms, Vin. Ord. 250), and the same coat is found to Polgrave and Poldegrew, corruptions of the name.
The same authority (fo. 226) gives Azure, a lion passant argent to the name of Palegrave. Or, a lion rampant gardant azure, is also entered to the name of Pagrave (College of Arms, E. D. N. Ind.) ; and in the same volume the rhinoceros crest is noted as borne by a Norfolk family of the

name, though it has not appeared in any of the investigations relating to them and comprised in this book.
In 1730 (8th June) Thomas Lubbock, son of Richard Lubbock and Elizabeth his wife, eldest daughter and coheir of Thomas Palgrave (see p. 55), had a grant of arms for Lubbock, which see in extenso, p. 183 ; and his descent from the, Palgraves was commemorated in the crest as follows, A stork rising ppr., reposing the dexter foot on an antique shield charged with the arms of Palgrave, being Azure, a lion rampant gardant argent (College of Arms, Gts. 8, 75 b ).
In 1796, on the entry of the Pedigree of the Northwood Barningham family, consequent on the law-suit referred to on the extinction of the line of the baronets (see p. 13), the arms are given as Azure, a lion rampant gardant or (College of Arms, N 3, 51).
In 1825 (2nd July) the following were exemplified to Sir Francis Palgrave on his taking that name, Per pale azure and gules, a lion rampant argent, on a canton or an escarbuncle of the second. Crest: Between two branches of palm ppr. a leopard's head affronte'e erased argent charged on the neck with an escarbuncle sable (College of Arms, Gts. 35, 217). See the grant in extenso, p. 185.
The only subsequent official dealing with the arms was the grant and confirmation to Mr. Thomas Palgrave, which see in extenso, p. 187.

Note, — The discrepancy in the date of the death of Thomas Palgrave in the Patent and in the Tabular Pedigree arises from the evidence of the monument having been required in establishing the claim to the arms (and on which monument the date is 6th March, 1638), and the evidence of the register (which gives it as 11 th May % 1638) being of course accepted in preference by the examiners of the Pedigree.
These alterations have already appeared in the preceding pages.

Celebrated as a grammarian, is spoken of in most biographical notices as a native of London. Although unable to assign any place to him in the Norfolk Pedigrees, there are circumstances which suggest his connection with the North wood Barningham line. He was tutor to Mary Tudor, Dowager of France, and wife of Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk, to whom the Palgraves were, as has been shown, related through the Glemham marriage. Again, Frances Pennington (ne'e Palgrave) was in the household of the Dowager, who, with her second husband, stayed for three days at Great Yarmouth, and " took great liking for the same, promising that they would procure the King's Majesty himself to come to see it." — Manship the elder, p. 22. A contract for printing one of John Palgrave's works has been edited, from the original in the Record Office, by Mr. FurnivaJl, for the Philosophical Society.
