Monumental Inscriptions inside the Church There is no plan of the interior layout of the church

His death called forth the following general order to his Corps: Whilst the impressions attendant on the remains of our late brother officer, Sir John Douglas, are present in our minds, I would fain draw the attention of the Junior members of his corps to the animating prospects which his career holds out. In him will be perceived an officer of a corps almost constitutionally serving in subordinate detachments possessing the confidence of all in command with the love of those who obey. He is seen equally admired and trusted on every service; whether in the West Indies, America or Cape of Good Hope; whether animating his corps in defending one fortress or leading them to the reduction of another; whether in executing the most arduous duties or in bearing the most confidential and important dispatches. I need not repeat to you the distinguished part he acted in the long, glorious, and successful struggle for the defence of Acre or the reduction of El Arich; the siege of which he conducted in person, commanding the allied British and Ottoman Forces.
The historian will associate Douglas and marines with the 1st discomfiture of the greatest conqueror on record. In his life will be found not only every honourable incentive to the soldier, but in his example the marine officers will see that Royal Approbation, confidence, and the bounty of a grateful country have been opened to reward his exertions. Death is equally the fate of all. May we be held in readiness for the unknown summons, and may the success of this brave soldier and worthy man be as indelibly engraven on the memory of the young marine as on the walls of Acre and of El Arich. Signed: Andrew BURN, Major-General.

For the signal ability, energy, and promptitude displayed by him in these services he received the thanks of both Houses of Parliament, and created by his Sovereign King George the IV, K.C., C.B. In private life his goodness of heart and kindness of feeling were unfailing, and she who best knows the rare excellence of her beloved and lamented husband’s character erects this tablet in testimony of her affectionate sorrow.

Arms above: On a mount vert a buck couchant under a tree all proper on a chief azure a mount vert theron a lion tearing a flag all proper and beneath the word Madripore.

(On a shield a castle with a griffin rising out of it). Blue floor slab. This stone is very much worn, but we believe it is correctly identified: 1, because the name Livingstone occurs among the burials in the old note book referred to later; 2, because the old Livingstones, Barons Livingstone, EARLS of NEWBURGH, bore a castle in their ancient coat, and a castle is not a very common bearing.

Translation: Sacred to the memory of Dame Katherine Puckering. This monument, erected by an upright man to a distinguished lady, by a dearly loving husband to a sorely missed wife, was raised to the memory of Katherine Newton, youngest daughter of Sir John Puckering; Chancellor or Keeper of the Great Seal of England; a woman second to none in the quire of womanly Virtues, in Modesty, Uprightness and Chastity, by Sir Adam Newton, first Tutor then Private Secretary to Henry, most Illustrious Prince of Wales, and after he was cut off by an early death Receiver General to the Most Excellent Prince Charles, his brother. It is his fixed intention shortly to be interred in the same tomb. The above-mentioned Sir Adam Newton some years after he had written the above epitaph, which he composed while surviving in the enjoyment of complete health [the death of his wife], was created Baronet by King James and afterwards appointed Secretary to the Council of the Marches of Wales. He lies buried beneath this monument, as the pious devotion of his executors fulfilled his will, gladly awaiting the Resurrection through Christ his Redeemer. He yielded his body to death on the 13th of January, 1629, but his soul had long dwelt in the heavenly regions before that. He left behind him five children, to wit one son and the rest daughters.
This handsome monument was erected by the elder Nicholas Stone*, and formerly stood in the north chancel. It is surmounted by a very fine shield of arms in white marble with the twin visors, crests and mantling of Newton and Puckering. (* Walpole, "Anecdotes of Painting").
The arms are: NEWTON with the honourable augmentation granted by King James, i.e. azure, 2 ostrich’s feathers in saltire (because Sir Adam Newton was tutor to Henry, Prince of Wales) between 3 boars’ heads couped at the neck, heads to the dexter, argent bristled and tusked or; impaling, PUCKERING of 6 pieces; 1 and 6, sable a bend fussily cotised argent (Puckering of Warwickshire); 2, ..../a mullet of 5 points unpierced (ASHTON); 3, ermine in a fesse, 3 annulets (BARTON, of Wherby, Yorks, or of Norfolk); 4, paly of eight (LANGLEY (?); 5, a bend dauncettée and in base a bendlet plain (LEVER of Lever, Lancs).

350. PERCEVAL (2). Near this place are the mortal remains of the Right Hon. Spencer PERCEVAL, first Lord of the Treasury and Chancellor of the Exchequer, who died on the 11 May, 1812, in the Commons House of Parliament, in the 56th year of his age. His noblest epitaph is the regret of his Sovereign and his country, his most splendid monument the glory of England by his counsels maintained, exalted, amplified. But the hand of the Assassin not only broke asunder the brilliant chains of duty which bind a Statesman to his native land and made a void in the high and eloquent Councils of the Nation. It severed ties more delicate, those of conjugal and parental affection, and turned a home of peace and love into a house of mourning and desolation.
Above the inscription is a beautiful portrait bust executed by the celebrated Sir Francis CHANTREY. There is another memorial tablet to Perceval in Lincoln’s Inn Chapel; and his achievement of arms, with the list of his honours, hangs in the Great Hall there.
It would be useless to record a few isolated facts in the career of this most brilliant statesman. In the awful opening of the nineteenth century his fame was almost European. His terrible death by the hand of a madman in the very midst of all his labours for his country’s good plunged all England into mourning. The Rt. Hon. Spencer Walpole is his most recent biographer.

York); 5, argent on a bend sable 3 covered cups (RIXTON); 6, paly of 6 or and azure on a chief of the second a griffin passant guardant of the first wings displayed (WHITE ,of Winchelsea, Sussex); 7, arg. a chevron gules within a bordure sable besantée (VANNELL, of Norfolk); 8, or on a chief azure 3 cinquefoils of the first (MOCKET, of Kent); 9, az. 2 lions rampant combatant or (CARTER, of St. Cullumbe, Cornwall); 10, chequy gules and or over all a chevron azure charged with 3 annulets or (GILDRIDGE, of East Bourne, Sussex); 11, argent 2 lions passant azure (LOVETT?); 12, GARDINER (?); 13, or a naked human leg couped at the thigh az. HADDON; 14, BYFIELD; 15, WELLER; all impaling SMITH as coat number 2 above. The DALES of Yorkshire, the GOLDINGTONS of Bedfordshire, and the HANMERS also all bear the coat number 11 as above.
375. WILSON (53). This monument was erected by Sir Thomas Maryon WILSON in memory of his beloved mother, Dame Elizabeth, wife of Sir Thomas Maryon Wilson, who died the 15 Novr, 1818, in the 48th year of her age.
Wilson impaling SMITH the same as impaled and quartered on the tomb of her husband. The quartering being almost certainly for an earlier connection of the Wilsons with the same Smith family. This would explain the arms in the glass windows described by Mr Swainson, one of them representing quarterly Wilson, Smith, HADDON and WELLER, and being of earlier date than the above connection.
376. WILSON (64). Sacred to the memory of William Maryon WILSON, Esq., fourth son of Sir Thomas Maryon Wilson, Bart, by Dame Elizabeth, his wife, who died June, 1808, aged 16 months. Quarterly Wilson and WELLER. It is curious that he should bear his grandmother’s arms quarterly, seeing the Wilsons did not incorporate the coat of Weller permanently in their arms.
377. WILSON (8). Sacred to the memory of Sir John Maryon WILSLON, 9th Bart., of Charlton House, Kent, born the 13 Decr, 1802, died the 11 May, 1876. Also Dame Charlotte Julia Wilson, his wife, born the 13 February, 1808, died the 8 March, 1895. Also Jane Charlotte Wilson, eldest daughter of the above, born 7 January, 1827, died the 22 Janry, 1902. "Christ our life!. [Monument of white and black marble].
378. WILSON (10). This monument is erected by Sir John Maryon WILSON, Bart, of Charlton House, in memory of his dearly beloved son, Captn Dudley Maryon Wilson, R.H.A., who died at Rawail Pindee, India, 24 Novr, 1871, aged 31 years.
Inscriptions on the Windows and Ornaments There is no plan of the interior layout of the church
379. To the glory of God and in loving memory of her father and only sister this window is erected by Maria RICHARDSON, 1881.
380. This window is erected to the glory of God and in loving memory of Edward Arthur WILLIAMS, C.B., Lieut-General of the Royal Artillery, who entered into rest June 20, 1898, aged 74 years. Also of his son Robin, who died August 8, 1898, of yellow fever, at Rio di Janeira, aged 24 years.
381. Heraldic window of 6 pieces described by Rev. Chas. SWAINSON in the Annual Report of the Woolwich Antiquarian Society for 1897-8. Beneath this window is a stone with the following inscription: The north west aisle of this Church was erected in the year 1693 by the executors of Sir William NEWTON, Bart, Patron of the living and Lord of the Manor. Francis CAMERON, D.D., Rector, William WRIGHT, Charles CURTOYS, Churchwardens. [Note: This inscription is inaccurate, as Sir William Newton was alive in 1700.]
382. To the glory of God and in thankful memory of our mother, Charlotte DALGETY, who died the 13 June, 1888. Below this window is a coat of arms in brass with the motto "Evasi". (See BLOUNT, to which it belongs).

385. This Charity School and Vestry Room were erected at the charge of Sir William LANGHORNE, Bart, a Patron of this Church, Anno Domini 1713. The above stone was removed from the old school room on the site of which the east end of the chancel stands, 1840. Arthur DRUMMOND, Rector, William WRIGHT, John DOBBS, Churchwardens.
386. May we suggest that the Bugle Horn Inn outside the Church is far more probably named or renamed out of compliment to Sir William Langhorne, whose arms contain 3 bugle-horns, than from any vague connection with one of those numerous "horn fairs" formerly held in so many places.
387. The east window is the work of Isaac OLIVER. The centre figure was inserted in 1882, when the half lengths of Moses and Aaron were made whole lengths. Of the three lower panels the two outside ones have coats of arms as follows:
1. Argent on a saltire gules an escallop or (SEE of Rochester, impaling quarterly. 1 & 4, grand quarters quarterly 1 and 4 per bend embattled sable above argent below; 2 and 3, azure a fleur-de-lis [for WARNER, Bishop of Rochester, consecrated A.D. 1637 (founded Bromley College, 1666)].
2. Azure three boars’ heads couped at the neck argent langued gules tusked or. Crest: Out of a ducal coronet or a boar’s head argent, James NEWTON, dated A.D. 1639. James Newton was brother of Sir Adam and Gentleman Usher to King Charles I.
3. In the third panel is the following inscription: This window was glazed at the cost of James Newton, Esq., uncle of Sir Henry Puckering Newton, Barronett, son and heir to Sir Adam Newton, Baroronett, deceased, A. 1639. [Note: There is still a small portion of a Latin inscription at the base of this window which may have belonged to some other window].
388. In memory of Sir Thomas Maryon WILSON, Bart, who died May 5, 1869, and Sir John Maryon Wilson, Bart, died May 11, 1876. In this window is a plate showing the descent of the Baronetcy, which is given in full later.
389. Another window in the south aisle has "The gift of Charles CURTOYS, Churchwarden MDCCCLXXIX".
390. To the glory of God and in memory of Vivian Derring MAJENDIE, April 24, 1898.
391. To the glory of God and in memory of Henry Grills MAJENDIE, February 12, 1900.
392. Taken from a Mahdi tomb on the 2 Septr, 1898. by the Field Battery R.H.A., and presented to Lieut-Col. HELMSLEY, R.A., who commanded the Battery on that day, it having been looted by the Dervishes from the Christian Church at Khartoum at the sack of that place in 1885, restored to the services of the Church to the glory of God, 1899.
393. This is classical, of wine glass shape, and of late date, and without inscription, with four escallops on the four faces, three turned inwards and one outwards, and a cover ornamented with fruit and flowers.
There are three Tables of Benefactions at the west end on the south wall. They are as follows:

The Chaplain’s yearly salary £50 and £100 left by the founder’s last will and testament the interest thereof to be applied to the augmentation of the Chaplain’s yearly salary. The Revd Thomas CHAMBERLAYNE, Rector. Joseph COOPER, Farmer FLOYD, Churchwardens. 1817.
394b. Benefactions that was left by the will of the Revd William COREY to this parish of £4 a year for the land and tenements in the parish of East Greenwich was let on lease in the year of our Lord 1810 to the Governors of Greenwich Hospital for 61 years at the yearly rent of £28 to be paid quarterly £2.6s.8d. to be paid to the Rector per annum and the remainder £25.13s.4d. to be given to the Poor of the Parish.

394c.

There are other benefactions, by Miss Georgina CAFFIN, in 1888, about £600; Mr William FLEMING, 1895, about £180; and Mrs Jane Webster FOX, 1903, about £90. The first two for the benefit of the poor of the Parish and the last for the upkeep of her husband’s tomb in Charlton Cemetery.
These latter have not yet been inscribed on the boards in the Church, but particulars are to be found in the book of the Churchwardens’ Accounts.
395. This is a very nice plain example of Jacobean work, very slightly ornamented above the panels with cherubs heads and scroll work. On it are the arms of Sir David CUNINGHAM (?), Kt. and Bt., one of the trustees for the rebuilding of the Church under Sir Adam NEWTON’s will. These arms are very curious. All the CUNNINGHAMs (Whether CONYNGHAM, CUNINGHAM, or CUNYNGHAM) seem to bear the ordinary shake-fork, but here is what is anciently described as a Bishop’s pall, that is a shake-fork which only terminates at the very edge of the shield. There is also in the chief angle an inescutcheon charged with a lion rampant crowned, while in the two base angles are castles embattled and machicolated all proper. The whole with the cherub face and scrolls below making a very pretty piece of Jacobean carving.
396. Under the tower of the Church inside is nailed what seems to be the old sounding board although apparently of different wood to the pulpit.
Three is a small example of the Royal arms, painted on wood of later date, surrounded by four little cherub heads. It is of the time of George III, being quarterly 1 and 4, England; 2, Scotland; 3, Ireland; over all Hanover ensigned with a royal crown. Up to 1816 the inescutcheon of Hanover was ensigned by an electoral bonnet. Hence it must be later than that date. Mottoes: "Honi soit qui mal y pense" and "Semper Eadem".
There is another example of the royal arms in a large gilt frame also on the west wall, of the Stuart period, most probably put up in the time of Queen Anne, but certainly not later than the Union with Scotland, at which time the Royal arms underwent a change. This coat is: Quarterly first and fourth grand quarters, France and England quarterly; second grand quarter, Scotland; third, Ireland. Same two mottoes as above.
Nailed to the west wall is a small lozenge-shaped tin plate of about 1ft. square bearing these arms: Per pale sable and gules a chevron per pale gules and argent in the dexter 3 arrows 2 and 1 heads to the base and feathered proper (probably argent) and in the sinister 3 roundels sable 2 above and 1 below flaming or. Above is a baron’s coronet and below the motto "Zeal and Honour", while the supporters are a stag and a unicorn.
Above on the same west wall is a very handsome hatchment containing: Quarterly first and fourth grand quarters, PERCEVAL; second and third grand quarters, BLOUNT and CORNWALL quarterly: all impaling WILSON.
397. The older volumes of the registers are as follows:
One folio size. "The gift of Anthony BATEMAN", Baptisms, Marriages and Deaths, 1653-1753.
One small volume. Christenings, Marriages and Burials, 1695-1715.
Two small volumes of Baptisms, Burials and Marriages by special licence, 1754-1798 and 1799-1812.
A Churchwardens’ Account Book, 1709-1726.
398. On the splay of the south window over the squire’s pew is a brass plate bearing at the top the arms of WILSON with the motto: "Pro lgeibus et Regibus" and the following Inscription: In Memoriam. Sir William WILSON, b. 1605, created Baronet for his loyalty on Mar. 4, 1660, by the title of Willelmus Wilson de Eastborne, Master of Horse to Earl of Suffolk, High Sherriff of Sussex, 1655, died 9 Dec., 1684, buried at Eastborne.

Sir Thomas Wilson, 4th Bt., born 1684, died Oct. 6, 1759, buried at Uckfield.
Sir Edward Wilson, 5th Bt., F.SA., born 1717, died June 1, 1760, buried at Uckfield.

Col. Sir Thos. Maryon Wilson, 8th Bt., born April 14, 1800, died May 5, 1860, buried at Charlton.
Sir John Maryon Wilson, 9th Bt., born Dec. 14, 1802, died May 11, 1876, buried at Charlton.
Sir Spencer Maryon Maryon-Wilson, 10th Bt., born Dec. 4, 1829, Lieut. R.N., High Sheriff of Sussex, 1890, died Dec. 31, 1897, buried at Fletching.
399. One covered flagon inscribed "Ex dono Elizabethae CRAGGS Uxoris Jacobi Craggs, Armigeria; Vicesimo Quinto Die Decembris Annoq. Domini 1711". Also arms and crest of Craggs.
400. Two patens inscribed "The gift of Sir Richard RAYNES, Knt., A.D. 1710" (Arms as given by Rev. Chas. SWAINSON: Chequy, on a bend a leopard’s face between two annulets, a canton ermine charged with a mullet, which coat differs slightly from that of Raynes of Hampstead, Middlesex and Marwood, Kent. The family seem to have originated in Buckingham, where they bore plain chequy argent and gules a canton ermine, which coat is differenced and elaborated for very many branches).
401. Chalice inscribed "The gift of Mrs. Sophia GROVES, A.D. 1858".
And others not inscribed.
1. R. PHELPS, Fecit, 1713.
2. Ch made me, 1685. Abraham WHELOR, Church Warden.

Further list of Charlton Burials (with out gravestones)
403. The following is an uncorroborated list of persons buried in Charlton Churchyard, but not commemorated by any inscription now to be seen. It is extracted from an old note-book originally kept by Henry CARVER in 1833, but added to irregularly for many years after. The only virtue of this list lies in the fact that any name found in it would suggest a search in the Parish Register. It, however, also shows incidentally what a very large number of people are buried in our old churchyards without any memorial stone of any kind. The figures wherever given refer to the date and the age of the person at death, and where the actual day is given, if it is not the day of death, but the day of burial. In this list we have made no attempt at corroboration of any kind, either by reference to the registers or otherwise.

Addenda. Numbers in brackets refer to churchyard plan
In the year 1833 a plan of the churchyard was made, and before going to press I made vigorous but unsuccessful efforts to discover it. It has now come to light again, and thanks to the kindness of Major Sheppard I have been able to inspect it. Unfortunately these remarks are too late to be included in their proper place. Although the key to this old plan is lost we are able with the assistance of the old notebook to clear up several difficulties.
427. At first sight there appears to be a mistake in the drawing of this old plan, for the BRADFORD and COOPER tombs are quite near the south gate. The churchyard has evidently been extended a little both on the west and on the south since 1833.
428. Where the DUNBAR tomb (No.4) now stands was then a tomb marked NICHOLSON, while the large 429. FALKINGHAM monument has entirely disappeared, the site being occupied by that of TOWNSEND.
429. Near (12) is a monument marked "BYERS"; (14) is Mrs. Ann HUDSON, d. 1807, aged 52 years.
On the site of 16 (RUSSELL) and 17 (RANKING) was the tomb of Ann OLD, d. November, 1842, aged 31 years.
430. No.(20) may be STEPHENSON; but several monuments have disappeared just here to the memory of the ARCHER, BLACKHALL, HOGE, QUANCE, WIGHT and WOOTTEN families. The wife of Thomas CHAMBERLAYNE, and one William FORD are buried between (34) and (36), where is now the BURNETT monument.
431. Many tombs seem to have disappeared at the corner now occupied by Nos.(40-43), notably a large one marked "BUXTON". The following were buried just here: Miss Sally BAKER, d. 1816, aged 21; Charlotte COLEMAN, d. Dec. 1837, aged 38; Mrs. Ann CRODE, d. Apr. 1829, aged 74; Rebecca C. FEATHRESTONE, d. 1799; Wilhelmina LAFARGIN.
432. Near the MITFORD monument (45) was a large tomb marked "HOADS", which seems to have disappeared as a result of the enlargement of the RICHARDSON tomb (67). A certain Sergt. NICHOLS was also buried near this Richardson monument.
433. Between (70) and (89) were the tombs of George PARKS, d. Sep. 1834, aged 34, and John MILLINGS, d. Dec. 1838. 74 may not be PREBBLE, as stated in text, but may be John PARKER, d. 1801, aged 41.
434. Between (36) and (37) are buried George MILL and Mrs. DOWNS – the latter d. Jany. 1837, aged 49.
435. Near (87) is buried Sarah GEORGE, d. August, 1839, aged 45.
436. Near (91) are buried Mrs. JAMES, d. 1832, aged 60; also Ann James, d. Jan. 1838, aged 64; also Richard James, d. Feb. 1838, aged 72 years. Also Mrs. HOPGOOD, d. Aug. 1834; Mrs. THURLOW, d. Jany. 1825, aged 73; Mrs. Thurlow, d. Apr. 1837, aged 39; Fanny Elizth. Thurlow, d. Sep. 1837.
437. On the south of the PERCEVAL monument were buried three people named NODRUM.
438. Near (90) are buried Mr. Samuel POILO, d. Dec. 1840, aged 32, and Mrs. MITCHELL, d. 1844.
439. Near (97) were buried Richard ANDREWS, Mrs. Andrews, Robert DAY, d. June, 1841, aged 65 years, and Mrs. Day.
440. Near (111) are buried Harriot HINTON, d. 1842, aged 45; Mr. COPELAND, d. 1832.
441. To east of (128) lies Mrs. SEABROOK, d. Nov. 1829, aged 56.
442. Where (141) now stands are buried Mrs. BIBLER, William Newman Bibler, d. Nov. 1837, aged 75; William WATERMAN, d. 1830, aged 80.
443. Between (142) and (143) was the tomb of Mrs. HARMOND, d. 1826, aged 86.
444. Between the MIDDLETON monument and the wall of the church, was a big grave marked "RIDDLE" and the stone of Charlotte COLEMAN, which latter was removed, by consent, to a position near (41), and has now disappeared.
445. Between (148) and (149) lies Esther LEGGATT, d. 1822, aged 42.
446. A large monument marked "HAYNES" has entirely disappeared from between (151) and (152).
447. Between (156) and (158) was a large monument marked "REDMAYNE", which has also now disappeared.
448. At the corner, near (159), lie Mrs. BOLTON, d. Nov. 1857, aged 50, and Mrs. WHITFIELD.
449. Near (161) are buried Thomas CARVER, d. 1825, aged 68, and Mrs. Carver, d. 1826, aged 68.
450. Under what was then (1833) the east wall of the church were buried several members of the PRICKETT family.
451. Near (165) were buried Thomas and Mrs. MEADOWS and John BOYD – the latter d. 1833.
452. Just beyond (167) lie Mrs. WINGFIELD, d. 1836, aged 91, Mrs. ASHSTON, d. Dec. 1826, aged 88, and several members of the HATCHARD family.
453. Owing to the extension of the church eastwards it is now impossible to trace where many of those mentioned in the old notebook lie at this corner of the churchyard. The following tombs, however, appear to have disappeared altogether: Large "COWAN" monument. Solomon CORNSDALE, d. Feby. 1827, aged 48. Mrs. Elizabeth HUDSON, d. Mar. 1841, aged 27. Mrs. Samuel ROOK, d. May, 1825, aged 84. James SIMPER, d. 1784, aged 45.
454. South of (200) lie Mrs. and Mrs. WICKENDEN.
455. North of (178) lies Thomas PARK, d. May, 1836, aged 65.
456. (217) is the grave of William SKYRING, Esq., d. 1806, aged 40. (2011-01-12 John Leslie reports that his researches indicate that William Skyring was a Colonel in the Royal Artillery. He was married to Elizabeth Motley Austen, Janes cousin. He left behind two daughters & his widow. He had a son William Francis Skyring who died "young" in possibly 1804. Burial site unknown.
457. Many tombs have disappeared north of 213, notably a large "PAIGE" monument, together with those of the Rev. William GARDNER, d. 1812, aged 70, and Mrs. Ann NICHOLS, d. 1838, aged 86.
458. No. (251) is the tomb of the NOBLE family; Mrs Susanna Noble, d. Nov. 1834, aged 64.
459. South of (253) lies Thomas HAMPSHIRE, d. May, 1837, aged 77.
460. In the space north of Nos. (265) and (283) many monuments have disappeared, notably two large ones marked "WIGHTWICK" and "SAUNDERS".
461. No. (312) is the tomb of Catherine BLUND, d. July, 1834, aged 57.
Families connected with Charlton.
The following seem to call for slight genealogical and biographical notes:
Edward Blount (portions of whose tomb still remain in the Church, namely, two brass plates, one with inscription (as given) nailed on a pillar, and the other with coat of arms nailed under a window on the north wall) was the second son of Thomas Blount by his second wife, Elizabeth BALL, widow of Lawrence Ball, of London, gent. (she was born Elizabeth HOTE, and married firstly one GAGE, secondly Lawrence Ball as above), who on the 18th of March 1549, had purchased the fee simple of Wricklemarsh for £400 from William GREAYE, of Reading. Edward Blount only acquired part of the Manor of Wricklemarsh in right of his wife, the other portion being conveyed by her son Sophony Ball, to Brian ANNESLEY, of London. On 1st November, 1656, his son, Thomas Blount, settled it on his own son Thomas, who, on 7th July 1669, conveyed it to Sir John MORDEN (q.v.).
We can learn very little of the various members of his family. His eldest son, Thomas, under the title of Col. Blount, is frequently mentioned in Evelyn’s Diary, but mostly on account of his mechanical devices, such as his new kind of plough, and his "way-wiser" for telling the distance his coach travelled, evidently a species of seventeenth century cyclometer. We give one reference under 30th September, 1659, from Evelyn: "I went to Sir William DUCIE and Col. BLOUNT, where I met Sir Henry Blount, the famous traveller and water-drinker". [This Sir Henry Blount (1602-1682) was the third son of Sir Thomas Pope Blount, Bart., of Tittenhanger, Herts]. Col. Thomas Blount appears to have got into trouble at the restoration. In the Cal. State Papers, Domestic Series, 1660-61, under January 25th, we find him pleading against an insinuation that he was not a good Royalist. As a matter of fact he was actually clapped into prison at the restoration of KING CHARLES II. In 1661-2 William BOREMAN, of Greenwich, pleads for him to Secretary Nicholas that at least he may have a hearing. Future events show that he evidently cleared his character. The family of Blount is so large that we have found it almost impossible to link up this branch with the original parent stem. Our principal clue arises from the fact that those at Charlton incorporate the coat of Cornwall in their arms. This Edward Blount’s grandfather (William Blount) is mentioned by DRAKE as of Waddesley and Glose, co. Salop. This is most probably William Blount, of Wadley and Glazeley, co. Salop. In the arms as given on this tomb occurs the mullet, which is the differencing mark for the descendants from a third son. Now the gentleman who fits in best with the above William of Glazeley is William, fourth son of John Blount, of Kinlet, by Alicia, daugher of Kynard De LA BERE, and grandson of Sir John Blount, of Sodington, who married secondly Isabella CORNWALL, of Kinlet, daughter and heir of Sir Brian Cornwall. But there is no certainty at present about this matter, for in 1505 we find one, Peter Blount, the great grandson of the above Sir John Blount, of Sodington, through his first wife, Juliana FOWLESHURST, marrying Ann, daughter of Sir Edward Cornwall, of Burford. These Blounts at Charlton may have been descended form a third son of this match.
General Sir William CONGREVE, first Baronet, here buried, was Comptroller of the Royal Laboratory, and was created a Baronet 7th December, 1812. He was descended from the Congreves of Staffordshire; the Poet and Playwright, William Congreve, being, almost certainly, his great-uncle. He has most unfortunately been confused with his rather more distinguished son, also General Sir William Congreve, second Baronet, who was also Comptroller of the Royal Laboratory in succession to his father. This latter, not the first Sir William, was in reality the inventor of the "Congreve Rockets", which did such good service at the battle of Leipzic, for which service he received from the Emperor Alexander of Russia, the insignia of the Russian order of St. Anne. This latter died at Toulouse in 1828, where he is most probably buried. In 1829 John BURKE mentions a Sir Ralph Thomas Congreve, brother of the above Sir William, as the third Baronet. However, there seems to be no further mention of him anywhere else.
In 1872 Debrett speaks of the Baronetcy of Congreve being in reality extinct, because what he described as the third Baronet, namely William Augustus, son of Sir William, second Baronet, and another son, named Frederick, had then (1872) been lost for many years. Now (1908) there is only one of the books of present dignities which mentions the Baronetcy, and that, strange to say, is Burke. And by a still stranger irony, Burke, in 1907 ignores Burke of 1829 altogether, and speaks of William Augustus, third Baronet, born 1827, and his brother, Frederick Augustus, born 1828, as "not having been heard of for many years", thus altogether ignoring their own statement of 1829 re. Sir Ralph Thomas Congreve.
The Proud House of CONYERS, who bore az a maunche or, were descended from Roger of COIGNIERS, in Normandy, who was invited by William The Conqueror, near the close of his reign, to come over to England. In 1095 William CARELIPPO, the Prince Bishop of Durham, who held almost sovereign sway in the north, appointed him Constable of the Castle of Durham. His son, grandson and great-grandson were all great barons, being Lords of Horton, in York, which took their name, and henceforth became known as Horton Conyers. The name of Conyers frequently figures in the Rolls of Arms of the warriors who fought under the banners of Edward III and Henry V in France and elsewhere. In 1628 John was created first Baronet by Charles I. His grandson, Sir John Conyers, third Baronet, is the one who became Lord of the Manor of Charlton. This gentleman’s third son was named John, and this John may possibly be buried at Charlton in the Churchyard, for there is a curious ornamented tomb, with cherub heads and bead-work, date 1748, and inscription almost illegible, which although erected to the memory of one NORTHWOOD, has another inscription at the bottom, apparently to John Conyers. Sir John Conyers’ son, Sir Baldwin Conyers, died without issue male, thus the Manor of Charlton was lost to the Conyers family, for the title reverted to Sir Ralph Conyers, Baronet, a cousin of Sir Baldwin. It is sad to read that the last Baronet, Sir Thomas Conyers, died in 1810 in great poverty in the Workhouse of Chester-le-Street. (Burke’s "Vicissitudes of Families").
In the "Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica" is a most interesting report on the pedigree of James CRAGGS, Postmaster General; an extract from which we are tempted to quote. We quote from a portion of the depositions of John Craggs, uncle of the said John Craggs: "And the deponent farther saith that he hath seen the said arms on an antient gravestone which belonged to their family and which was destroyed and broke to pieces by the Scots in the time of the Civil Wars, and also that all their deeds and principal writings were lost and destroyed by hiding them in boxes under ground from the outrage of the Scots which this deponent very well remembers, by which means the evidences of their family was totally or almost all quite lost, and further this deponent saith not". (Signed) "John Craggs".
The James Craggs here buried has also been the subject of much confusion. We have frequently seen him referred to in local books as the Secretary of State, whereas in reality he was Postmaster General, as stated on his tomb, his son being the rather famous Secretary of State. Horace WALPOLE, Old Peter LE NEVE, the antiquary, and others have been unnecessarily caustic about his antecedents. [Walpole, of course, thought it great presumption that James Craggs the younger, the Secretary of State, should "contest a seat" against the all-powerful Sir Robert Walpole, hence the reason for his sarcasm, while with poor old Le Neve it was different, for to him greatness consisted entirely in yards of pedigree, which Craggs certainly had not]. However, the fact remains that his father, Anthony Craggs, was a country squire at Wolsingham, Co. Durham, with quite an appreciable amount of landed property, and although the Lady Mary Wortley MONTAGU speaks of this James Craggs the elder as "footman to the old
466. DUCHESS of NORFOLK", this statement admits of considerable softening. It most probably in this instance means Steward or Land Agent for the very vast estates of the House of Norfolk. We find mention of several members of this family as settled in County Durham. Hasted tells us that the grandfather of Anthony CRAGGS was settled at Landew and Wiserley, and we have discovered some of the Craggs family about this time (1700-1750) occupying the Manor of Seaton-Carrow, in this same County of Durham, and described as yeomen.
The subject of this note, James Craggs the elder, finds a place in the "Dictionary of National Biography". He was a man of remarkable energy and ability, which was spoilt by an all-consuming avarice. He heaped up a vast fortune, said to be over a million and a half of money, with which he hoped his son would become great, but alas for all his hopes his only son caught the small-pox and died (1721), and James the elder soon died too – it is said by his own hand.
His son, James Craggs the younger, was a man of much more mark than his father, possibly because he had a more liberal education at the Courts of Hanover and Turin. He certainly was employed on some most important negociations, and although he has many detractors his praises have been loudly sung by his supporters. Alexander Pope was unfailing in his unstinted admiration of him, and laboured incessantly for the erection of the tomb in Westminster Abbey over his remains. He was said to be an exceedingly handsome man of most commanding presence. He died of small-pox as stated above (1721). He also finds a place in the "Dictionary of National Biography" (q.v. for further particulars of both).
And here let us venture to clear up another popular local error. We are frequently told that the Earls of St Germans derive from Edward ELIOT, of Port Eliot, who married Elizabeth Craggs. They do not. They derive from Edward Eliot, of Port Eliot (1727-1804), who was the son of Richard Eliot, of Port Eliot, by Harriot, illegitimate daughter of James Craggs the younger. This Harriot was married at the age of thirteen to Richard Eliot, and after his death she married a HAMILTON, and became the mother of John James, MARQUIS of ABERCORN. Like her father, she was celebrated for her good looks. Richard Eliot was a brother of the first-mentioned Edward Eliot (see Vivian’s "Visitation of Cornwall").
There is much confusion with regard to the Cunninghams in the days of the early Stuarts, as James I seems to have attracted several gentleman of that name from Scotland to seek their fortune in London. This Sir David CUNNINGHAM, of London, Kt. and Bart., apparently died without issue, and by his will he left "Sir David Cunningham of Robertland Kt. and Bart. my honoured kinsman" his universal legatee. We wonder if he was related to the David Cunningham who was incumbent of Charlton about this time. They are both buried in Charlton Church, and one of them evidently presented the pulpit, which bears the arms of Cunningham.
There is the description of the very grand funeral accorded to this distinguished soldier in the "Gentleman’s Magazine", volume 84, page 413, but beyond informing us of the manner of his death and burial it does not much increase our knowledge of the man. Dr. BORTHWICK, who is described as a relation, was chief mourner, although an Admiral DOUGLAS is mentioned among those present. [Note: In August of same year another Maj.-Genl. Douglas, son of W. Douglas, of Bryton, Scotland, died at Narbonne of a wound received at Bayonne].
Sir William DUCIE, Bart., was second son of Sir Robert Ducie, Bart., Alderman of London, created Baronet 1629, by Charles I. His elder brother, Sir Richard Ducie, Bart., a great Royalist, had his estates sequestrated in 1643, and died, unmarried, 7th March 1656-7, and was buried at Tortworth. Sir William Ducie, Bart., succeeded to the title, and was created after the Coronation of Charles II, 1661, Baron Cloncy and Viscount Downe. He married Frances, daughter and co-heir of Francis SEYMOUR, first Baron Seymour of Trowbridge, and died at Charlton, 9th September 1679. His nephew, Sir William Ducie, Bart., died in the Fleet Prison, 1691, leaving his brother, Robert Ducie, of Islington, heir to the Baronetcy, but he died, unmarried 1703, and thus the title became extinct.
Sir Augustus Simon FRAZER (1776-1835), Colonel, was only son of Col. Andrew Frazer, and grandson of George Frazer. His mother was Charlotte DURNFORD. He was born at Dunkirk. Became gentleman cadet at Woolwich, 1792. In 1793, at age of 17, he joined Duke of York in Flanders. He was present at battles of Nouveaux, Cateau Cambrésis, Tournay and Boxtel. In 1799 he served in the expedition to the Helder and at the battle of Bergen. In 1807 he commanded the artillery in the assault on Buenos Ayres. Served on Wellington’s staff in Peninsular Wars. Was present at Salamanca and Osma, and at the battle of Vittoria and the siege of San Sebastian, also at the battle of Toulouse. In 1815 he commanded the Artillery under Wellington, in Belgium, and by bringing nine-pounders into action instead of the old six-pounders, very much increased the effect produced by the English guns at Waterloo. This was his last engagement. He died at Woolwich, 1835. * See "Dictionary of National Biography".
Sir William GOSSET was second son of Matthew Gosset, of Bagot, Jersey, by Elizabeth HILGROVE. His great-uncle was Isaac Gosset (1713-1799), who was such a wonderful modeller of portraits in wax, even as his uncle, Matthew Gosset, had been before him (for these two artists see "Dictionary of National Biography"). Sir William was M.P. for Truro and Under-Secretary of State in Ireland; he was afterwards Sergeant-at-Arms to the House of Commons, till his death in 1848. He married, Gertrude, daughter of Thomas DANIELL, of Trelissick, Cornwall, by whom he had a son, Sir Ralph Allen Gossett, who was also Sergeant-at-Arms to the House of Commons.
Sir Thos. HISLOP was third and youngest son of Lieut.-Col. William Hislop, R.A., who died at Woolwich, 1779. His two elder brothers were killed in India. The active service which he saw is mostly detailed upon his tomb. He was created a Baronet 2nd November 1813. He seems to have behaved with considerable severity in India, and though defended in the House of Parliament by the Duke of Wellington his action at the Fort of Talner was never satisfactorily explained. After his signal victory over the rebellious Mahrattas at Mabridpore he arrived before the Fort of Talner, and on the refusal of the Mahratta Governor of the fort to surrender, he stormed the fort, hanged the governor as a rebel, and put the garrison of 300 to the sword.
Sir William LANGHORNE (1629-1715) was son of William Langhorne, East India Merchant, probably descended from the Langhornes of Layston, Herts., who were themselves a branch of the Langhornes of Fryers, Bedfordshire. He was admitted to the Inner Temple on 6th August, 1664. He succeeded to his father’s East India trade, and was created Baronet, 1668. In 1670 he became Governor of Madras in succession to Sir William Winter. He left Madras in 1677, after seven years of difficult work in keeping the balance between England and France out there. He purchased the Manors of Charlton and Hampstead, and settled down in the former, dying at the ripe age of 85, and by his will leaving much of his wealth in a species of "Queen Anne’s Bounty" bequest for augmenting poor livings. Charlton, at least, will always preserve the memory of his benefactions, for he left one thousand pounds to augment the living and money to build and endow a school. *See "Dictionary of National Biography".
474. MIDDLETON, of Belsay, Northumberland
There is a good account of this family in Cokayne’s Complete Baronetage, Vol.3. The fourth Baronet, Sir William Lambert MIDDLETON, married Anne, widow of Warner PERKINS, hence the reason for his burial at Charlton in the vault of St. Quentin Bladen Perkins. It is interesting to note that he was the grandson of the famous (or infamous) General Lambert, of Cromwell’s Army, his father, Sir John Middleton, having married Frances, daughter and heir of John LAMBERT, of Carlton, in Craven, Yorks., and son of General John Lambert aforesaid (died 1683, aged 64).
"Gentleman’s Magazine, 1790: "At Charlton, Kent, James MOFFAT, Esq., Director of East India Company. He was the oldest Commander in the Service, and would have had to be out of the direction by rotation in April next".
No monograph of Charlton, however brief, should omit to mention Sir John MORDEN, Bart., who founded the well-known charity called "Morden College", which has always been so intimately connected with Charlton, standing as it does on a portion of the land forming the Old Manor of Wricklemarsh. Sir John was himself a Londoner, being only son of George
477. MORDEN, of St. Bride’s, citizen and goldsmith, by Martha, daughter of Thomas HARRIS of London, but he came of a Suffolk family, whose pedigree is traced in Volume II of Mr J.J. Muskett’s well-known book. He entered into trade with the Turks at Aleppo. He was created a Baronet in 1688, and was M.P. for Colchester, 1695. He married Susan, daughter of Joseph BRAND of Edwardstone, Suffolk, and died without issue, 1708, aged 86, leaving nearly all his fortune to found "Morden College" for decayed Turkey Merchants.
Sir Adam NEWTON, Bart., who rebuilt the Church, is described in the deed of transfer of Charlton Manor to himself from Sir James ERSKINE, as Adam Newton, of Richmond, co. Surrey. We have failed altogether to trace his antecedents, but we are told in the "Dictionary of National Biography" that he was a native of Scotland. In early life he was a teacher at the College of St. Maixant, in Poitou. In 1600 he returned to Scotland, and was appointed tutor to Prince Henry, son of James VI of Scotland. In 1605 he married the daughter of Lord Keper PUCKERING, and, though a layman, was presented to the Deanery of Durham the same year. In 1606 he purchased the Manor of Charlton, and built a "goodly brave house" there. In 1610 Henry, Prince of Wales, was given a separate household, and Adam Newton was appointed Secretary. On the death of Prince Henry, in 1612, he was made Treasurer to Prince Charles, and in 1620 he sold the Deanery of Durham and was created a Baronet. After Charles I’s accession he became Secretary to the Council, and in 1628 Secretary to the Marches of Wales, which last was a very lucrative post. He died 1629. He was a very learned scholar in Latin and Greek, and wrote several books in those languages. His son, Sir Henry Newton, the famous Royalist, came into the large estates of his uncle, Sir Thomas Puckering, in Warwickshire and elsewhere, and assumed the name and arms of Puckering. He died at the Priory, Warwick, in 1701, aged 83, and was buried with the Puckerings, in St. Mary’s Church, Warwick. He kept open house for all poor Cavaliers who had been beggared in the Royal cause. These Puckerings must on no account be confused with the Pickerings, of whom the most famous, Sir John PICKERING, is buried at St. Helen’s Church, Bishopsgate, London. On the death of Sir Henry PUCKERING-NEWTON the baronetcy became extinct.
This distinguished old General, who lost his leg at Waterloo, was a familiar figure in Charlton for many years. He was second son of Admiral Sir Hyde Parker (1739-1807, Knighted on April 21st, 1779) and younger brother of Vice-Admiral Hyde Parker (1784-1854). His youngest brother, Harry Parker, fell fighting for his country at Talavera, and so did his nephew, Captain Hyde Parker, who commanded the "Firebrand" in its attack on the Russian forts at the mouth of the Danube in 1854, and was killed in the action. His grandfather, Vice-Admiral Sir Hyde Parker, Bart., was a still more distinguished naval commander. The title had been created in 1681, in favour of Hugh Parker, Alderman of London, with special remainder to his nephew, Henry Parker, of Honington, Co. Warwick, who married Margaret, daughter of Alexander HYDE, Bishop of Salisbury, and first cousin of the first Earl of Clarendon. This Sir Henry was grandfather to Sir Hyde Parker, Bart. The title descended through Sir Harry Parker, Bart., of Melford Hall, Suffolk, elder brother of Admiral Sir Hyde Parker, Kt.
The family of PERCEVAL have had a very long connection with Charlton. In 1766 an Act of Parliament was passed to enable John JONES and Margaretta Maria, his wife, late Margaretta Maria WELLER, to grant a long lease of the Manor, and the Percevals accordingly became tenants, with the result that many of them are buried here, and hence it is that Charlton Church enshrines the mortal remains of that great and celebrated statesman, the Rt. Hon. Spencer Perceval. The connection of the Percevals with Charlton, however, begins much earlier than 1766, for in 1757 Catherine, first wife of the second EARL of EGMONT, was buried here, and from that time onwards many of the Percevals have found a last resting place here, In fact, all the Earls of Egmont and most of their Countesses, and the connection with Charlton seems hardly yet severed, for the sixth Earl and his Countess were buried in Charlton Cemetery in 1874 and 1870 respectively.
[Burke, in his "Landed Gentry of Ireland", mentions a Brigadier-General Michael RICHARDS who died 1721 unmarried, and who was fourth son of Col. Solomon Richards, of Solsborough, co. Wexford, and died October, 1691, and was buried in Westminster Abbey 6th of that month. His wife was Abigail, daughter of Henry GODDARD, of Deptford and Chatham. This coincidence would certainly be worth investigating to discover the early history of the family to which the Charlton Michael Richards belonged].
Michael Richard (1673-1721) was one of three very distinguished brothers, sons of Jacob Richards. His sister Elizabeth married the Rt. Hon. James CRAGGS, the elder, the Postmaster-General, whose monument is in the chancel of Charlton. He and his two brothers were distinguished not only for their great bravery but also for their remarkable talent in military engineering. Jacob, the eldest, was sent to Hungary to "survey, learn, and observe the fortifications", and he made many very valuable discoveries about explosives. He also did good work in Ireland at the siege of Carrickfergus and the battle of the Boyne, and later, in Flanders, with his brother Michael at the battle of Steinkirk. He was appointed Third Engineer of the Kingdom, and died in 1701. John, the next brother, saw service with the Venetians, and in the Polish and Portuguese armies. In 1706 he was sent by Marlborough into Spain, and became Governor of Alicant, where he was besieged. He sustained the siege for four months, and no relief came, and when the enemy invited him to inspect the mine they had dug under his fortifications he sent his engineer, and finding there really was a mine he wrote to his brother about the troops to be sent to his succour, ending "Good night, Micky, God send us a merry meeting". Four days afterwards the enemy fired the mine and John Richards perished,
Michael, the youngest, whose monument is such a prominent object in our Church, was the most distinguished soldier of the three. He was a great favourite with John CHURCHILL, the all-conquering Duke of MARLBOROUGH. When he was only eighteen years of age he was fighting under his brother Jacob in Ireland, and a year later was present in Flanders at the battles of Steinkirk and Landen. At twenty-two he was wounded at the siege of Namur. In 1696, when only twenty-three, his engineering genius was recognized, and he was appointed Chief Engineer and Commander-in-Chief to the Expedition to Newfoundland. In 1704 he joined Marlborough in the Netherlands, and was present at the battles of Schellenberg and Blenheim. In 1706 he was again in action at Ramilies, and carried the despatches after the battle from MARLBOROUGH to the Queen. He behaved with splendid bravery at the defeat at Almanza, covering the retreat of the sick and wounded. His genius in bridge-building made his services of unique value to Marlborough, and on more than one occasion he saved the situation by the rapid construction of a bridge. On 9th December, 1710, came the crowning effort of his pluck. He had now been fighting for over two years in Spain, having arrived there before the sad death of his brother John, whom he was too late to save, in March, 1709. The English Artillery, under RICHARDS, arrived with von Staremberg’s Army at Brehuega just half-an-hour too late, for Stanhope had been forced to surrender. However, they joined battle with Vendome, who had 20,000 men with him, and after a hard fight, lasting an hour-and-a-half, during which Richards’ train was almost annihilated, the English won. This was Richards’ last fight. He returned home September, 1711, and was appointed Chief Engineer of Great Britain, and spent his time visiting Portsmouth, Plymouth, Sheerness, etc. In 1720 he was instrumental in forming the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich. He died 5th February, 1721, and his three nieces, daughters of his sister, by James CRAGGS the elder, erected the ridiculous monument over his remains in Charlton Church, by which he seems best known.
Drake tells us that this Robert De VERE was third son of John de Vere, fifteenth Earl of Oxford, who died 1539, and was present at his father’s funeral. He is not, however, mentioned by Brooke in the list of this nobleman’s sons. But John de Vere married the heiress of the TRUSSELS, Lords of the Manor of Shottisbrooke, so this would fit in well with the appointment of this Robert de Vere to be Lay Rector of Shottisbrooke College. He died in 1598, so if he was present at his father’s funeral in 1539 he must have been a very old man when he died. He describes himself in his will as of Wricklemarsh, but he does not appear to have been Lord of that Manor, which probably by the 16th century had several houses in it, as it stretched much in the direction of the village of Lee.
There is a very interesting account of the early history of the ancestry of Sir Spencer Pocklington MARYON-WILSON, Bart. (now Lord of the Manor of Charlton, Kent, and of Hampstead and other places) to be found in Old Thomas Wotton’s Baronetage. From this we gather that the family is descended from Thomas Wilson, of Elton, in Yorkshire (?) who in 1250 bore sable, a wolf salient and in chief three estoiles or, even as the Wilsons of Charlton do to-day. His great grandson, Anthony Wilson, of Elton, married a daughter of John PROFIT, of Pocklington, *Yorks. (*The present Baronet, however, derives its name of POCKLINGTON from his mother, who was a daughter of Rev. H.S. Pocklington). Again, Anthony’s great grandson, Thomas Wilson, of Elton, had two sons, William Wilson, of Stroby, Lincoln, and Edmond Wilson, of Tockwith.
We are not going to deal with the numerous ramifications of this very large family of Wilson, which, if properly done, would fill many weighty volumes, but we wish to explain a little matter in Drake’s Hasted which seems to demand some explanation, for it conveyed to our minds a wrong impression which we have since been able to correct, and might also do so to others. It is an unintentional result of condensation. Most of the people living in the neighbourhood of Charlton talk loosely of the WILSON family as being descended from a very worthy and learned man of Queen Elizabeth’s day, to wit, Sir Thomas Wilson, or Dr. Thomas Wilson, and those who have had the pleasure of visiting Charlton House are shown his portrait. Now this Dr. Thomas Wilson was certainly a cousin of the first Baronet, as we will presently show, and, moreover, he was in every respect a most worthy and learned man (see "Dictionary of National Biography"), but he is NOT the infamous Sir Thomas Wilson mentioned in the note on page 123 of Drake’s Hasted, who behaved in such a devilish manner to the great Sir Walter RALEIGH; and, after looking through many genealogical books, we do not believe that this latter was any relation at all to the worthy old Doctor, Dr. Thomas Wilson, whose biography in the Dictionary above-mentioned makes most interesting reading, was the great-great-grandson of William Wilson, of Stroby, aforementioned, while Sir William Wilson, first Baronet, was fifth in descent from Edmond Wilson, of Tockwith, brother of William Wilson, of Stroby. John Wilson, of Fletching, father of Sir William Wilson, first Baronet, was a lawyer of considerable note. He married Mary, daughter of Thomas GARDENER, and his mother was the daughter of William SMITH, of Dringhouses, near York (see later, large coat of arms under Sir. Thomas. MARYON-WILSON’s monument). Sir William Wilson was a Cavalier of considerable distinction, and several of his cousins fought in the Royal cause, his cousin Charles being slain at the King’s side t the battle of Naseby. The future history of the Baronetcy is given in many books of present dignities, but it is noteworthy to remark that recent publications of the Historical Manuscripts Commission have thrown much new light on the services rendered by General Sir Thos. Spencer Wilson, sixth Baronet, in the Anglo-Hanoverian War, especially at the battle of Minden, in 1759.
A few brief (sic) notes concerning the Manor of Charlton, near Woolwich, Kent.
The name Charlton, Cherleton, or Coerl-ton, the settlement of the Coerls, or husbandmen, is not unnaturally a very common one for our English Villages. It occurs no less than four times in the County of Kent alone. Hence the necessity for more closely designating the neighbourhood which forms the subject of these notes.
The earliest reference to this Manor as a separate entity is found in the Doomsday Book.
It is as follows: Wills filius Ogerii ten’ de ep’o Cerletone. p uno solin se detd. T’ra.e.v.car. In dnio e. i. car.
7 xiii.uill’I bnt. iii. car. Ibi. ii. serni. 7 viii. ac. p’ti. Silna.v.porc’.T.R.E. 7 post. 7 modo ual’.vii.lib. Hanc t’ra

And is thus translated*:
William, son of OGER, holds, of the Bishop, Cerletone. It answers for one suling. There is the arable land of five teams. In demesne there is one team and thirteen villans have three teams. Two slaves there. And eight acres of meadow. Wood of five hogs. In the time of King Edward, and afterwards, and now, it is worth seven pounds. Two brothers held this land of the King for two manors, Goduin and Aluuard.
* We give Larking’s translation, which, though not so picturesque, is much more literal than that of Daniel
[Note: Money as mentioned in Doomsday is generally estimated at about thirty times its present value (1908).
There is much difference of opinion with regard to the various measures of land in the Doomsday Survey. It is usually thought that the Norman "Carucate" of land was the amount of land one plough and team could manage in one year; while the Saxon "Hide" is estimated at about 120 acres.
The Kentish "Suling" as a unit of land has given rise to endless discussion. There is a most able and scholarly account of it to be found in "Feudal England" by that very eminent authority. J.H. ROUND].
From the above account we gather that King William gave the Manor of Charlton to his half-brother ODO, Bishop of Bayeux; under whom it was held by William Fitz OGER.
It afterwards came into the possession of Robert BLOET, Bishop of Lincoln, the King’s Chancellor, who gave it to the monks of Bermondsey.
The original grant is not now to be found, but among the Cottonian MSS. at the British Museum, in the volume called Claudius A VIII, is a MS.* [Early 16th Century] consisting of sixteen closely written pages, all in one very neat handwriting, and written on both sides of the paper. This is called by Dugdale the "Chronicle of Bermondsey", and we extract the following from it:
Robertus Lincoln episcopus salutem. Novent universitas vestra quod ego, pro salute domini mei Willelmi, Anglorum regis, et pro salute animarum patris et matris meae, et pro salute animae fratris mei, Baiocencis episcopi etc, concessi monachis de Bermundes Charletonam sicut frater meus Baiocensis episcopus tenuit et similiter ego tempore Willelmi Regis, et patris sui. Testibus, Eudone dapifero, Roberto de Ver, magello de Maundeville, Wellelmode de Albereio, Roberto de Wardic, et aliis.
Translation: Robert, Bishop of Lincoln, sends greeting. Let your Body take knowledge that for the salvation of my Lord William, King of England, and for the soul’s weal of my Father and Mother, and for the salvation of the soul of my brother, the Bishop of Bayeux, etc., I have made over to the monks of Bermondsey, Charleton, just as my brother, the Bishop of Bayeux, held it and likewise myself in the days of William the King and of his Father. Witnesses: EUDO, Master of the House, Robert de VERE, Magillus de MAUNDEVILLE, Willelmodes de ALBERIUS, Robert de WARDIC, and Others.
And now King William Rufus ratifies this gift in the following words:
Willelmus Rex Anglorum, Anselmo Archiepiscopo et G. Episcopo Roffensi et H. dapifero, et omnibus fidelibus suis Francigenis and Anglicis, salutem. Sciates me concessisse donum quod fecit Robertus Cancellarius meus videlicet episcopus Lincoln de manerio suo de Cherletona quod dedit pro salute animae nostrae ecclesiae sancti Salvatoris de Bermundsey et volo ut monachis praedictae ecclesiae iter honorifici et pacifice teneant sicut Baiocensis episcopus et Robertus predictus melius tenuerunt tempore patris mei et meo tempore. Teste episcopo Willelmo Dunelmiensi.
[Note: "G. Episcopo Roffensi" refers to Gundulph, Bishop of Rochester, the renowned castle-building Bishop, much of whose work still remains at the Tower of London, in both the Castle and Cathedral at Rochester, and in the St. Leonards Tower at Malling.
"H. dapifero" may refer to Hugh, Earl of Shrewsbury, or possibly to Hugh de Lacy].
Translation: William, King of the English, to Anselm the Archbishop, and to G. Bishop of Rochester and H. Master of the House, and to all his faithful lieges, French-born and English, greeting.
Ye must know that We have given our consent to the gift which Robert our Chancellor, to wit the Bishop of Lincoln, hath bestowed of his Manor of Charlton in that he gave it for our soul’s weal to the Church of Saint Saviour in Bermondsey, and we desire that the monks of the aforesaid Church walk honourably and peacefully even as the Bishop of Bayeux and the aforesaid Robert have walked excellently in the time of our Father and in our own time.
Witness: William, Bishop of Durham.

Robert BLOET was promoted to the See of Lincoln in 1092, and William CARELIPPO, Bishop of Durham, died in 1095. Hence we can approximate to the dates of the above documents.
The new Monastery of Bermondsey, which was founded about this time by Alwin CHILD, had evidently not yet received its first Charter from the King, for in that document* we find mention of the Manor of Charlton among the lands belonging to the Monastery. This was still, however, in the reign of William Rufus, who himself granted this first charter for some monks form La Charité sur Loire to found a Priory at Bermondsey, which afterwards became such a great and powerful abbey. Henry I confirmed his predecessor’s charter to these monks, and again we have the mention of the Manor of Charlton among the ever-increasing list of their lands.
And now we regret that we have been unable to break the silence of over a century by the discovery of any documents relating definitely to this Charlton. But in the year 1241 (25 Henry III) a "Quo Warranto" writ was issued against the Prior of Bermondsey to show cause why he had erected a gallows at Charlton, and the twelve jurors were amerced for concealing the fact**. But the men of Charlton were evidently determined not to submit tamely to be fined again for the Prior of Bermondsey’s misdeeds, for in the 7 Ed. I (1278) we find another Jury of Charlton men notifying *** the Court that the Prior had again erected his "gallows tumbril, and pillory" and committed sundry other misdemeanors at Charlton, whereon the Prior produced a charter from King Henry II giving him all sorts of privileges, which were duly admitted. We wonder where this Charter of Henry II is now.
The next document of great interest in connection with this manor is to be found in the great Charter Roll of the nation now preserved in the Record Office. The date of it is 1268 (53 Henry III). It is as follows:
Pro Priore et Conventu de Bermundesaia.

Translation: Be it known to all faithful men for all time, that I, William, King of the English, for my soul’s weal and that of my Father King William, whom I succeeded in this kingdom that I have given to God and the monks of "Charity" the Church of St. Saviour of Bermondsey and with it Bermondsey itself and all its appendages as a possession with perpetual right free and undisturbed by any tolls or customary exactions. I yield this to them in addition to whatever gifts others have made with whatever conditions, and I ratify those gifts, viz., Charlton and its appendages, which Robert, Bishop of Lincoln, granted to them, also the Church of Hardwicke with the ground adjoining the church and the tithes of the forenamed village, with the tithes of Upton which Winebald de Baalun gave them, also the Church of Omeney and its land and tithes, with other tithes of Estenton and Alvineton which Odo de Tirone, a knight of the same Winebald, gave them, and also the tithes of Fyfield which Roger, a knight of John the son of Waleran, gave them with the said John’s permission, as well as two hides of land in Easton which Walter the son of Ausger gave them, and likewise the land at Hoddesdon which Peter of St. Olave gave them even as he had the goodwill of it in the time of my Father.
Whatever was granted to them of land in London, either in churches, tithes, houses, land, or any other property, whether in the city or without the bounds, as in parks or meadows, mills or fisheries, or any other property (I confirm the grant).
Such is my will, and I charge that the monks of Bermondsey shall enjoy the possession of their property and all their wealth fairly and freely in peace and honour.
William, by the will of the Almighty king of the English, confirms and ratifies these presents with his seal. (Here follow the seals of the other witnesses).
**. Prior de Bermundeseye summonitus fuit ad respondendum domino Regi de placito quo warranto clausulam habere visum franci plegii emendas assise panis et cerevisie fracte trebuchet tumbrelas furcas et infangenethef in manerio suo de Cherleton.
Et Prior per attornatum suum venit et dicit quod ipse invenit ecclesiam suam inde seisitum et quod ipse et omnes predecessores sui semper hujusque a tempore quo memoria non existit continue usi sunt libertatibus predictis etc et de hoc point se super patriam.
Et Galfridus de Hertspol qui sequitur pro rege similiter petit quod inquiratur etc. Ideo fiat inde Jurata etc. Jurata hundredi de Blakeheth dicunt super sacrementum suum quod predictus Prior et omnes predecessores sui semper hujusque a tempore quo non existat memoria sine interruptione usi sunt libertatibus predictis sicut predictus Prior dicit. Ideo predictus Prior inde sine die salvo Jure Regis, etc.
Translation: The Prior of Bermondsey was summoned to give answer before the Lord King concerning the decree by warrant of which he was alleged to have a licence and right of Frankpledge, a right to claim compensation for any violation of the assize of bread and ale, a control of gallows and jurisdiction over thieves caught within the boundaries of his Manor at Charlton.
The Prior was represented by his attorney, who pleaded that the Prior had found his Church possessed of these privileges and that he and all his predecessors had always hitherto from time immemorial enjoyed the said privileges, and on this account he appealed to the State for protection.
Galfridus de Hartspool followed on the King’s behalf and likewise pleaded that enquiry should be made. So it was decided to appoint a jury for the purpose. The Jury of the Hundred Court of Blackheath declared on oath that the said Prior and all his predecessors always hitherto had enjoyed the said privileges from time immemorial as the said Prior had claimed. And so the said Prior was allowed the use of these privileges without limit imposed provided the King’s rights wee not infringed.
***. Idem Prior clamat habere has libertates subscriptas per cartas Regis Henrici senilis Regis Henrici secundi et Regis Henrici tercii videlicet quod ipse et successores sui quieti sint de scotto et scottis geldis et auxiliis forestariae percis claudendis et sartis viceniti schyris et hundredorum placitis et theoloniis et ab omnibus querelis consuetudinariorum sacca et socca thol et them et infangenethef. Clamant eciam habere per easdem cartas in maneriis suis in Cherletona, Rylewg, Werlingham, et Waddon furcas curiam suam de libertatibus septimanariis in tres septimanarias visum franci plegii bis per annum et assisam panis et cerevisiae. Et quod hujus modis libertates ipse et predecessores sui usi sunt a tempore quo non existat memoria et quod nichil super dominum Regem vel antecessores suos petunt quod inquiratur per patriam.
Et milites at hoc electi dicunt super sacrementum suum quod predictus Prior et predecessores sui plene usi sunt predictis libertatibus et quod nichil occuparerunt seu usurparerunt super dominum Regem vel antecessores suos postea (preteriae?) hoc quod perferunt veredictum suum in hec verba. Dicunt quod Prior de Bermundesey habet in manerio suo de Cherletona liberam curiam suam de tenentibus suis furcas infangenethef saccae socca et alias libertates quas clamat. Itan tamen quod tenentes sui venient ad tumum vicecomitati bis per annum et si, non venient vicecomitatus amerciatur eos, Dominus Rex habet amerciamenta et dicti similiter tenentes debent sequi bis per annum ad hundredum de Blakeheth per Borgesaldrum de Cherleton et quatuor homines et sumere ibi assisam panis et cerevisiae et si non venunt amerciantur et quod dicunt quod dominus Rex est in seisina sicut predicti tenentes sequi debent bis per annum ad turnum preductum. Et quod habere debet amerciamenta eorum si non venient et similiter quod iisdem tenentes sequi debent bis per annum ad turnum predictum de Blekehethe in forma predicta et similiter quod ibi sumere debent assisam predictam et ideo dominus Rex habeat et teneat inde seisinam suam inde pacifice et Prior cum omnibus libertatibus inde sine die salvo domino Regi et heredibus suis jure et accessione sua cum alias inde loqui voluerit.
Translation: The same Prior claims that he has these privileges confirmed in charters of Old King Henry (Henry II) and King Henry III, namely, that he and his successors should be exempt from poll tax and all taxes and from contributions for forestry, from closing their parks and assarts of the neighbouring shires from the decisions of the Hundred Court, and duties on imports and all disputes of Customary dues with jurisdiction in matters of dispute, franchise, with duties and warranties and criminal jurisdiction within the precincts. And they claim that by right of the same charters they have on their Manors of Charlton, Rylewg, Werlingham and Waddon gallows, their own Court every three weeks to define privileges, view of frankpledge twice in the year and assize of bread and ale. And whereas he and his predecessors have enjoyed such privileges from time immemorial and whereas they have in no way infringed upon or usurped the King’s rights either in regard to the King or his predecessors, they pray that a State enquiry may be made.
And the Knights chosen "ad hoc" declare on oath that the said Prior and his predecessors have enjoyed full use of these said privileges and have in no wise infringed upon or usurped the Rights of the King or his predecessors beyond this true claim that they put forward in these terms. They declare that the Prior of Bermondsey has in his manor of Charlton his own free Court for his tenants, the right of hanging, criminal jurisdiction within the precincts, with duties and warranties and other privileges which he claims. However it must be added that the tenants come to the periodical Court of the Sheriff of the County twice in the year, and if they do not come the Sheriff shall impose a fine upon them. The Lord King hath the right to impose fines, and likewise the said tenants are bound to repair to the Hundred Court of Blackheath twice in the year represented by the "Borseholder" of Charlton and four men, and to take there an assize of bread and ale, and if they do not come they shall be mulcted, and because they say that the King is in possession of the land even so the said tenants must repair twice in the year to the said Court. And whereas he is entitled to impose fines if they do not come, and whereas likewise these said same tenants must repair twice in the year to the said court of Blackheath in the manner prescribed, and whereas also they must take there the aforesaid assize, therefore shall the Lord King have and hold thence his possession in peace and the Prior shall enjoy all his privileges without limit imposed, provided always the King and his heirs be not injured thereby and provided always he my summon (the Prior) if he desire to make any other arrangement afterwards.
On behalf of the Prior and Monastery of Bermondsey. Henry, by the grace of God, etc., to the Archbishops, etc., Greeting. Be it known unto you that we have granted and by this our charter have confirmed to our Well Beloved in Christ the Prior and Monastery of Bermondsey that they and their successors shall hold in perpetuity one market each week on Monday in their Manor of Charlton in the County of Kent, and one fair in the same place each year lasting for three days, namely, upon the Vigil and Feast of the Holy Trinity and upon the day following provided that market and fair are in no wise to the detriment of neighbouring markets and fairs. So we will and so it is provided. And these are witnesses thereto. Henry, of Germany, our nephew, etc.
[Note: This fair afterwards became quite historic, and was not finally abolished till a few years go. Mr W.T. Vincent gives many interesting references to it in his "Records of Old Woolwich"].
We extract the next document from the De Banco Roll of 15 Edward I (1287). It gives us an interesting description of a squabble between the Prior of Bermondsey and the Bishop of Rochester over the Presentation to the Living [We think this presumptive evidence of a church here at Charlton as early as reign of Edward I]. We copy from Thorpe’s "Registrum Roffense".
Assisa Venit recognoscere quis advocatus tempore pacis persentavit ultimam parsonam que mortua est ad ecclesiam de Cherlton. Que vacat, et cujus advocacionem prior de Bermundeseye clamat versus Thomam episcopam Roffens. Et episcopus per attornatum suum venit, et concedit predicto priori presentacionem suam hac vice ad predictam ecclesiam, salvo sibi jure suo cum alis inde loqui voluerit. Ideo predictus prior habet breve ad ipsum episcopum, quod non obstante reclamacione sua ad presentationem ipsuis prioris ad predictam ecclesiam hac vice ydoneam personam admittat. Istud placitum irrotulatum fuit coram Thoma de Weylande, et sociis suis, justiciariis domini Regis de Banco, apud Westmonasterium a die sancti michaelis in unum mensem, anno regni regis Edwardi quinto-decimo, incipienti sexto-decimo.
Translation: A commissioner came to enquire who the Patron was who when there was no dispute presented the last Parson, now deceased, to the Church of Charlton, now vacant, to which the Prior of Bermondsey claims the right to present against Thomas, Bishop of Rochester.
The Bishop appeared in the person of his attorney and yielded the presentation to the aforesaid Church on this occasion to the said Prior, always provided that his own right be observed if on any other occasion he desired to nominate to that living. The said Prior therefore presented a brief to the Bishop himself that whereas his counter-claim did not hinder the Prior’s presentation to the said Church the Bishop should on this occasion admit a suitable person.
This decision was ratified in the presence of Thomas de Weyland and his fellows, the Justices of the King’s Bench at Westminster, to take effect one month from St. Michael’s Day, in the 15th-16th year of the reign of King Edward.
[Note: The Bishop of Rochester referred to is Thomas Inglethorpe].
In the reign of Edward II the Prior of Bermondsey’s rights in Charlton seem to be once again a subject of dispute, and again a writ of "Quo Warranto" issues against him.
Edward III, however, confirms the Charter for the Weekly Market and the Fair on the Feast of St. Luke. This confirmation is included in an immense Charter of Privileges granted by the King to the now very important and influential monastery of St. Saviour at Bermondsey. The Charter occupies a space of about two feet of the Charter Roll and would fill about forty of our modern folios. (Charter 4 E.III. no.57).
And now, alas! we hear nothing more of the Prior and his doings at Charlton until just before the heavy hand of Bluff King Harry the Eighth fell upon and put an end to all Abbots and Priors, and confiscated all their lands and goods to swell the Royal Coffers.
In 1527 Robert, Bishop of St. Asaph and Abbot of Bermondsey, leased the Manor of Charlton for 33 years to Sir Christopher GARNEYS. Only nine years later, i.e. in 1536, the blow fell, and the Monastery of Bermondsey became only a memory, and we must assume that the Royal Attorney instructed Sir Christopher Garneys for the future to pay his rent to his Most Sovereign Lord the King.
[Note: Before we pass on to the Post-Reformation history of the Manor, we wish to point out that there are many documents in the Record Office, some identified, but many not identified, referring to the various villages called Charlton scattered up and down the country. We give the reference to one of them, as a sample, from Vol. III of the Descriptive Catalogue of Antient Deeds in the Record Office No. A 4997.
Demise by Thos. de Hecham to Dunstan de Kingeston, Citizen of London for 15 years, of land, rents and tenements, with houses and the third part of a mill in Woolwych and Charlton, reserving a wood. Michaelmas, A.D. 1275)].
The next tenant under the Crown, after Sir Christopher Garneys, was William RICE, who obtained a lease for forty years (Pat.4 and 5, Ph. & M., p.5, m.43), in which the Manor House is mentioned. However, in 1558, Queen Mary conveyed the manor to Sir Thomas WHITE (Sir Thomas White was Lord Mayor of London at this time), William BLACKWELL, John White, and Roger MARTYN and their heirs, to hold, with other premises in capite, by service of the fortieth part of one knight’s fee (Pat. 5 and 6, Ph. & M., p.3, m.1. This again is a very long deed, conveying many other properties as well. There were many such grants about this time. They were most probably only made in order to discover definitely to whom the manors really did belong, and were not meant to take effect in actuality).
It, however, again vested in the Crown, and was granted to Lady Anne PARRY by Queen Elizabeth for a term of twenty-one years, to commence in 1595, on the determination of the lease to William Rice aforesaid. This lady bequeathed her interest in the manor to Thomas FORTESCUE, of Donnington, Berks, her son by her first husband, the unfortunate Sir Adrian Fortescue, who perished on the scaffold in 1539.
On October 18th, 1603, King James I granted (Pat. I. Jas., p.13) the Manor of Charlton, together with Ballard’s Mill (which latter had been left by the will of Robert Ballard for an "obit" for his soul’s good for ever, and had come into the possession of the Crown by a Statute, 1 Edward VI, chap. 14, for the Royal Appropriation of such gifts) and the Manor of Kidbrook, together with many other valuable manors, to John ERSKINE, Earl of Mar, not "in capite", but "in full and common socage". In June, 1606, however, the Earl of Mar conveyed the Manor to Sir James Erskine, of Okinge, Co. Surrey, and he sold it in the following year to Adam NEWTON (Lyson says Sir James Erskine paid the Earl of Mar £2,000 and sold it the next year to Newton for £4,500). Adam Newton’s son, Sir Henry Puckering Newton, Bart., spent so much of his substance in the "Royal Cause" that he was forced to sell Charlton Manor, the purchaser being Sir William DUCIE, son of the rich Sir Robert Ducie, Lord Mayor of London in 1630 and Banker to King Charles I, who left what was then the vast fortune of £400,000.
In 1680 occurred the last sale of the Manor, the purchaser being Sir William LANGHORNE, Bart. (Claus. 33, Ch. II, p.10). Drake sums up the remaining history of the Manor in these words: "He (Sir William Langhorne) entailed the Manor on his nephew and heir, Sir John CONYERS, whose only surviving son and heir, Sir Baldwin Conyers, died without surviving male issue; then on William Langhorne Games, Esq., who died without issue male; and lastly on the Rev. John MARYON, who devised it to his niece, Margaret Maria WELLER, with remainder to her sole daughter, Jane, who carried it in marriage to the family of WILSON, where is now remains". This is certainly the crystal of the story, but we will elaborate it a little as follows:
In 1679 (Drake somewhat confuses his account by transposing the figures and calling it 1697) Sir William Ducie, who had been created Viscount Downe by King Charles II, died at Charlton House without issue, and his executors sold the Manor of Charlton to Sir William Langhorne, Bart., who, although twice married, died without issue 16th February 1714-15, aged 85, and was buried in Charlton Church. Sir William Langhorne was also Lord of the Manor of Hampstead by purchase, but, although the history of the devolution of the two manors soon became identical, it was not originally so intended by Sir William, for he entailed the Manor at Hampstead first on the son of his elder sister by Mr GAMES, i.e. on William Langhorne Games and his heirs male, with remainder to the son of his next sister by Sir Christopher Conyers, Bart., i.e. Sir John Conyers, Bart., and his heirs male, with further remainders identical with those at Charlton, while he observed the reverse order at Charlton, the Manor being here entailed first on Sir John Conyers, Bart., and his heirs male, and secondly on William Langhorne Games and his heirs male, and remainders as before. Thus it was only by the failure of the ultimate issue male of both William Langhorne Games and Sir John Conyers, Bart, that the two Manors came into one ownership. The manor at Charlton was owned by Sir John Conyers, Bart., till his death, 14th September 1719, aged 75. He had large possessions elsewhere, and was buried at Great Stoughton, Hunts. His son, Sir Baldwin Conyers, Bart., dying without surviving male issue in 1731, William Langhorne Games inherited, but he died unmarried 27th January 1732, and is said to have been buried at Charlton. Thus the Manor devolved on John Maryon, who was the devisee in ultimate remainder under the will of Sir William Langhorne.
This John Maryon was the son of Joseph Maryon, Rector of White Roding, Essex, and Margaret Crouch. His mother, Margaret CROUCH, was the daughter of Charles Crouch, of Layston, Herts, and Frances Langhorne, daughter and heir of Benjamin LANGHORNE, of St. Ippolyts, near Hitchin, Herts. He himself afterwards became Rector of White Roding, Essex, and dying without surviving issue 28th November 1760, he devised the Manor of Charlton to his niece, Margaret WELLER, the daughter of his sister Mary MARYON by William PEERS, and at that time widow of John Badger Weller, of Hornchurch. In 1761 this lady took for her second husband one John JONES. In 1767 her only child, Jane Weller, married Lieut.Genl. Sir Thomas Spencer WILSON, Bart. Margaret Jones died 1777; her daughter, Jane Wilson, died in 1818, leaving her son, Sir Thomas Maryon Wilson, Bart., Lord of the Manor, and from him it has descended in direct line to his great-grandson, the present owner, Sir Spencer Pocklington Maryon-Wilson, eleventh Baronet.
