PREFACE TO VOL. Ill 

The wriling of this Preface emphasises again the loss sustained by 
the untimely death of the Author, which unfortunately prevented him 
from having the satisfaction of seeing the whole of the book in print. 
Had he lived he might have found the missing links connecting some 
of the persons included in the Chapters " Waifs and Strays " with the 
better known branches of the family. 

Some further information has come to my knowledge since his 
death, and this has been incorporated with his work. Some of this has 
come almost by chance. For instance, a few weeks ago in Lownde's 
Bibliographers' Manual of English Literature, edition 1857, I found a 
reference to another book by Joshua Baildon. The entry reads 
" Baildon J. ' Wonder of the World'; 410. 1656. Portrait by 
Marshall." It is also mentioned in Alibone's Dictionary of English 
Literature. My efforts to find a copy have failed. 

For other items I am indebted to Mr. Louis Ambler, F.S.A., F.R.I. 
B.A., and to Mr. W. E. Preston of the Cartwright Memorial Hall, 
Bradford, Yorks. To Mr. Charles Clay, F.S.A., Librarian of the 
House of Lords, I am much indebted for advice on various points, the 
filling in of some incomplete references and some translations. Mr. F. 
W. Cudlip of the Bishopgate Institute, London, has sent me some notes 
and he has undertaken the task of completing die index, which the 
Author had compiled up to the end of Part XI. (Vol. II. p. 352). It 
is prefaced by an explanatory memorandum by the Audior. 

Mr. John Bayldon of Stamford has given me some additional notes 
and corrections and informs me oi' a mis-description of the ownership 
of the miniatures reproduced opposite pp. 402, 418 and 426 in Vol. II. 
It appears that the originals from which diese reproductions were made 
belonged to die Rev. J. W. Bayldon, and after his death to the late 
Miss J. M. Addey (Vol. II. p. 423). Through the good offices of Mrs. 
Boswell Tucker they were lent to my brother for reproduction. Miss 
Addey bequeathed them to Mr. John Bayldon of Stamford (Vol. II. 



p. 400) in whose possession they are now. Mrs. Tucker has du;--U- 
cates of those opposite pp. 402 and 418 which the Misses Clarkson of 
Alverthorpe Hall inherited from their grandmother, Jane, eldest 
daughter of Richard and Susannah Bayldon (Vol. II. p. 422) and 
bequeathed to Mrs. Tucker. I am much indebted to Mr. Bayldon 
for the above information, and also for the photographs from which 
the portraits in this volume are reproduced. 

The frontispiece and illustrations facing pp. 39, 123, 174, 191 and 
192 are reproduced from the illustrations in The Ancestors and 
Descendants of Royal D. Belden which were originally chosen by, and 
made under the supervision of, W. Paley Baildon. See Preface to 
that work and p. 43 of this volume. 

I again regret that I am unable to add a list of those who assisted the 
author in his work. Some few names are mentioned in the text, to 
these and those unknown to me I know the author was grateful. 

I found it necessary to draw a date line for the items not connected 
with the main branches of the family. This line I fixed at the close 
of the eighteenth century. Many items later than this date have been 
forwarded to Bradford for addition to the Baildon collection there. 
Finally, a few blank pages are added for notes. These may be bound 
in with this volume. 

I have to apologise for some few typographical errors which were 
not detected until too late for correction. The care exercised by the 
printers has been of valuable assistance in this respect.

OBITUARY NOTICE 

" Historical and Literary Societies, particularly in the County of York, have sustained 
a great loss through the death of Mr. W. Paley Baildon, a Fellow of the Society of 
Antiquaries. Mr. Baildon during his lifetime was one of the most valued contributors 
to the publications of learned societies of the county associated with historical research. 
His monumental work ' Baildon and the Baildons,' issued in parts, was nearing com- 
pletion at the time of his death. His great collection of Yorkshire Notes, compiled 
from National Records, was well known to antiquaries. By the terms of his Will, 
those valuable manuscripts were bequeathed to the Corporation, and are now being 
arranged according to his directions in such a manner as to make them easily accessible 
to the student, and will form part of the important group of original Manuscripts 
already in the Reference Department of the Public Library."

CHAPTER VII 



THE BAILDONS OF METHLEY, WALTONHEAD, SNAITH, 
KIPPAX, ETC. 



The descent of this branch of the family is not proved ; there are two 
missing links, the parentage of George of Methley, and that of Hilary 
and his brother Francis. 



George Baildon, i.A., of Swanland in the parish of Ferriby, Methley, 
Leeds, and Great Hecke in the parish of Snaith, was probably a younger 
son of Robert Baildon of Baildon, by his wife Margaret Mirfield [ante, 
p. 217], and a grandson of John Baildon who married . . . . . 
Haldenby [ante, p. 203] ; l there is strong evidence of a near connection 
both with the Mirlields and the Haldenbys. He was probably born 
about 1525. 

1559, July 20. — Swanland. Francis Haldynby paid subsidy of 26s. Sd. for £10 of 
lands, and George Bayldon paid 3s. -jd. for 265. 8 if. of lands, which he had by a " pat- 
ton " [patent]. 2 

Sir Francis Baildon of Kippax bequeaths his interest in two leases in 
Swanland by his will in 161 5 [post]. 

1563, Easter Term. — Lincolnshire. George Bayldon and Anne his wife, formerly 
wife of James Standish, claimed Anne's dower in the property of her late husband 
against Henry Standish. The details given show a large estate in Lincolnshire, situated 
in Spanby, Aswarly, Walcot and Billingay [South of Sleaford]. The defendant admitted 
Anne's right to dower in 4 messuages, 3 tofts, 40 acres of land, 100 acres of meadow and 
100 acres of pasture in Spanby, and submitted to judgment. As to the property in 
Aswarly, he says that he is not the tenant, but one John Booth is, and so he cannot give 
Anne dower therein. As to the property in Walcot and Billingay, he says that it was 
settled on James Standish and Margery, hisfirst wife, and the heirs of their bodies, and 
that he, Henry, is the son and heir of that marriage, and therefore Anne has no right to 
d iwer therein. The plaintiffs admit the correctness of these pleas, and ask for an enquiry 
as to the Spanby property and their damages in respect thereof. 3 

1567, Easter Term.— George Baylden of Medley [Methley], yeoman, was sued 
by William Gybson of York, baker, for £18 due on a bond dated June 23, 1566. The 
bond was to secure the payment of £8 and four bushells of wheat. George said that 

1 I see in a note supplied by me to Mr. G. D. Lumb, F.S.A., the editor of the Methley parish 
register, I have stated that George was the son of John ; this is probably an error, as stated above

he paid the £S on October 23, 1566, at York Castle, and that he delivered the wheat 
immediately after the making of the bond ; which the plaintiff denied. The case was 
tried at the Lent Assizes at York in 1568, when George did not appear, and judgment 
was given for the plaintiff. 1 

1567, Easter Term. — George Bayldon of Medley [Methley], here called " gentle- 
man," was again sued by William Gibson for a debt of £5, due on a bond dated at 
Methley on July 18, 1566. The bond was to secure the payment of 50 shillings. George 
said that he paid the 505. at Methley at Michaelmas, 1566, which Gibson denies. I 
have not found any further proceedings in this case. 2 

1572, Trinity Term. — Robert Grcnewood, one of the attorneys of the bench, 
sued George Bayldon of Medley, gent., for a debt of 40s. 3 

1573, Easter Term. — Anthony Wardman of Wike i probably W. near Harewood], . 
tailor, sued George Bavldon of Great Hecke in the parish of Snaith, gent., for a debt 
of ^io. 1 

Robert Haldenby was party to a fine of lands in Great Heck in 
1537-8 ; Yorks. Record Series, vol. 2, p. So. 

1574, Trinity Term. — Margaret, Countess of Lennox, lodged a bill of complaint 
in the Star Chamber, stating that she is seised in fee tail of the Park of " Temple 
Ncwsame alias Newbyggene," which is " inclosyd and tensed wit one greate payle and 
quycksett hedges " ; and that on April 17 last, " one George Bayldone of Hardewycke 
witin the parrishe of Poumfret, gentleman, accompaned withe divers other ryotous 
and ev!e dysposed persons to the noumber of eight, whose names ar as yctt . . . . 
unknowen, . . . not havyng the feare of God before ther eyes, . . . as- 
sembelyd themselefes to geyther, and then and ther, withe force and armes, in ryotous 
and forsably maner, that is to say, with crossbowes, gonnes, swordes and pykestaves, 
and other wapons defensive and invasive, then and ther dyd pull upe and breake downe 
the payle of the sayd parke . . . and with lyke force dyd enter, kyll, waste and 
dystroye the game and deare . . . beinge within the sayd parke : speakinge and 
utteringe many dyspitfull and furyous wordes, not only aganst the kepers and offycers 
of yor sayd oratrix, but also contemptuouslye aganst yor hyghenes' peace and lawes, 
utteryd by them for the mouer terror of suche of yor subjecte's servantes and offycers 
as wold have hyndryd and letted ther sayd ryotousse ungodly and forsablie doinges." 

No details are given of the game killed, nor is it alleged that any was taken away. 
But we are told that " at ther departure thence [they] dyd cary away a great parte of the 
parke payl so by them poullyd downe, to the losse and dammage of yor sayd oratrix 
of xl /;'." " The sayd ryotusse forses and dysorders wer very notoryous, and to the 
great dysturbance of yor mats peace in and about the sayd manor of Temple Xewsame." 

The Countess asks for a writ of subpoena against George Bayldone, " who as yett 
of the sayd notoryous persons is knowne." 6 

1574, Michaelmas Term. — Fine between George Bayldon, gent., and John 
Brigge, plaintiffs, and Robert Civile of Copley, esq., deforciant, whereby there mes- 
suages and land in Haneworth and Woodhouse 7 were conveyed to Savile and his 
heirs. 8

THE BAILDONS 3 

1577, Hilary Term. — The Countess of Lennox made a further complaint to the 
Court of Star Chamber, and though George Baildon is not mentioned in it, there is 
little doubt that he was one of the " evill disposed personnes " who are referred to. 
She says that " Thomas Falkingham, 1 William Killingbecke and John Killingbecke of 
Leedes, . . . and Richard Leigh of the parish of Bradford, togeather with dy vers 
and sondrye other wicked, ungodlic and evill disposed personnes to the number of 
twentie or thereaboutes, whose names are . . . unknowen, did, the second daye 
of June now laste paste, and at dyvers . . . other tymes, . . . assemble . . . 
at Temple Newsam, . . . armed, weaponed and arrayed wth jackes, coates of 
piate, and Steele cappes . . . and also havinge gonnes, crossebowes, longebowes, 
and other weapons, .... and did enter into the saide parke . . . and the 
deare ... to the nomber of twentye or thereaboutes, as well rascall 2 as other 
deare of season, . . did then kill and destroye" ; they also broke down some part 
of the park pale, in order that the deer might escape. She mentions that Temple 
Newsam alias Newbiggen was given to her and " Matthew lait Earle of Lenox, now 
deceased, her lait husband,'' by " the lait Kinge of famous memorye, Henry the 
Eighie, lait Kinge of Englande, youre Highnesse deare father " in the 36th year " of 
his Highnesse most fortunate and happye reigne." 3 

1581, Easter Term. — Robert Grenewood, one of the attorneys of the Bench, sued 
George Baldon, late of Leedes, yeoman, otherwise George Baldon of Medley, gent., 
for a debt of 40:;. 4 . 

George Baiidon was buried at Kippax, May 31, 1588. 

George Baildon married, before Easter Term, 1563, Anne, widow of 
James Standish of Kiilingham, Lincolnshire, and daughter of Thomas 
Falkingham (son of Robert F. of Barton-le-Willows) by his wife Jane, 
daughter and coheir of Thomas Pygott of Clotherholme and widow of 
Sir Giles Hussey of Cawthorpe, Lincolnshire. The manor of North 
Hall in Leeds, and a good deal of property elsewhere in Yorkshire, came 
to die Falkinghams by this marriage. 

In my note to the Methley Parish register, mentioned above, I have 
.stated that George Baildon and Anne Standish were married in 1549. 
I have mislaid the authority (if any) for tins date, and it is incorrect. 
James Standish, described as of Billinghay, Lincolnshire, died November 
3, 1556, leaving a son and heir Henry, aged 17. The inquisition does 
not mention the widow. 5 

Anne Baildon was buried at Leeds, December 17, 1577, as " Mastris 
Anne Standysh, doughtere to my Ladye Hussye of the North Hall." It 
will be noticed that both Anne and her mother arc described by the 
surnames of their first husbands. Lady Hussey, Thomas Falkingham' s 
widow, was buried there, October 29, 1597, as "Ladye Hussye of the 
North Hall." The custom of using a former husband's surname vyas 
not at all uncommon, especially where the former husband had a title 
or was thought to be of a superior social position ; it often gives rise to 

1 Probably Thomas the younger, brother of Anne, George Baildon't, wife. He married K ■■

great confusion, but is still often used in the case of a peer's widow 
marrying a commoner. 1 

Their children appear to have been 

i. Hilary; baptism not found. See below. 

2. Francis ; baptism not found. See p. 8. 

3. William; baptised (Bayldon) at Methley, June 19, 1564. 

4. Richard; baptised (Bayldon) at Methley, April 15, 1570. 
1. Anne ; baptism not found ; married .... Ascombe. 



Hilary Baildon, 2.A., of Snaith, was probably the eldest son of 
George, i.A. [ante, p. 1], but there is no evidence to show conclusively 
whether he or his brother Francis was the elder. He was probably born 
about 1558 ; the Methley Register of baptisms does not begin until 
June, 1560. 

He cannot have been very much more than 18 when he married, 
Hillarie Baildon married at Snaith, Agnes Nottingham, July 8, 1576. - 
She is often called Anne ; the names Agnes, Annes and Anne were 
almost interchangeable. 

1583, October 28. — Hilary Bayldon sued Edward Duffeld for debt in the manor 
Court of Snaith. 3 

1583, December 21. — Hilary Bedlon sued Roger Chester for debt in the Snaith 
Court. 3 

1584, April 27. — Margaret Nottingham and Hilary Beldon and Anne his wife 
surrendered all their interest in a toft in Snaith in a place called Bondgate, to the use 
of Isabel wife of William Harome. 3 Margaret was probably Anne's mother. 

1584, June 8. — Agnes Aumbler surrendered all her lands, tenements, meadows, 
etc., and buildings, within the Soke of Snaith, to the use of Agnes Beldon, Margaret 
Nottingham and Isabel Harome, their heirs and assigns, reserving a life estate to the 
said Agnes Aumbler. 3 

1584, June 8. — James Holmes sued Uxor Blake for debt ; the matter was re- 
ferred to the arbitration of Hilary Beldon and Robert Lambarte. 3 

1588, November 25. — John Frcston of Altofte [Altofts], esq., filed a Bill of Com- 
plaint in the Court of the Duchy of Lancaster against Hilary Baildon, William Prince, 
and others. He recites that Queen Elizabeth granted a lease to Sir William Corge, 
knight (subject to an existing lease to John and William Tyndall) of " ali those her 
mynes of coles within the manors and lordshippes of Kyppax and Allerton by Water, 
and also licence and power to gette and digge as many other pytes for coolcs . . . 
any wheare within the lordshipps aforesaid wheare the same maye be found in search- 
inge from time to time." Gorge assigned this lease to Peter Tyndall ,\vho assigned it to 
the plaintirt"; Preston thereupon took possession, and had quiet enjoyment until about 
four years ago. Then " Hyllarye Baldon " and " divers others, Her Mats tcnaunts and 
coppihoulders within the said manors, practised with one Heughe Higgons, servante 
with William Gascoyne, esquire, a man of great welth and power, to procure his master 
to joyne with them in device and confederacie." Accordingly, they exhibited " a most 
heynous, slanderous and untrewe suggestion and complainte before the Lord Presidente 
and Her Mats Councell established in the North Partes," against Freston, who " was

tnjoyned to suye his worke and to give over the getiinge of colles," and against some 
of his workmen. This Bill was dismissed as against six of the workmen, who were 
awarded los. for costs. Ralph Roydhouse, one the six workmen, served an order to pay 
this 105. upon the said Prince. But " Hyllarye Baledon," Prince and the others, 
" confederated together and devised this practise," that one Michael Saunders, 
another of the six workmen, and " one the most simple in substance and wisdome, 
should take a shewe onely of the receite of the said tenn shillings," and so to defraud 
the others of the six workmen of their share. It is difficult to see how this " practise,"' 
admitting it to be true, could have damaged Freston himself. The principal complaint 
comes later. " The said Hyllary Baildon," Prince, and the others, induced Roydhouse 
and others of Freston's workmen to leave him ; they chose those " of most abilitie in 
substance and skill in workmanshippe, and polletiquely [i.e., craftily] enduced and 
perswaded them to joyne and confederate with them against Freston; exhortinge 
them, beinge pore and simple men, to leave Her Mats worke, and to become copartners 
with them in such other workes as they would take in hand and finde out." 

This offer seems rather vague, but it satisfied the simple-minded workmen. 
Roydhouse and the others "presently consented to joyne themselves unto them, 
according to their mocion and request." They began " to digge and set downe pittes " 
in the copyholds of various tenants within the lordship of Kippax, alleging that they 
were freeholds, and also to " digg colles " in places adjoining to Freston's mines, 
" to th'ende to kepe the said workmen so occupied in one place when their worke 
fayleth them in an other," which seems to have been a sensible thing to do. Baildon 
and the others also compounded with Nicholas Barret, Vicar of Kippax, for " freledge 
[privilege] and libertie to digg and set down pittes on his glebe, being certayne odd 
landcs liemg in sundry places, to th'ende they might therby gette to themselffes the 
colles within the coppieholde adjoyninge on every side upon the said glebe, which they 
did accordinglye." 

The consequences of all this miscellaneous digging were disastrous, according to 
Freston's tale of woe. The aggressors of whom he complains " not onclye themselves 
wear driven from their several! workes throughe the abundance of water, but also the 
Quene's Mats said mines there are so utterly drouned with water drawne thether by 
their meanes and diginge of coles, as yor Orator shall not be able, without excessive 
charge of sowinge or drainynge to gett the mines of coles yet remayninge." 

The whole country thereabouts is " indamaged " by the " hinderance and staye " 
of the mines, and the people " make such soringe 1 and lamentacion as is pittifull to 
be hard or knowne." 

The Bill is signed by Edward Heron. 

1588-9, February 6. — The defendants put in a joint answer, drawn by John 
Saville. After calling attention to the fact that the Bill " ys very uncertayne, untrue 
and insufficient in the lawe to be answeared," they proceed to deal with their own 
complaint before the Council of the North, the details of which Freston had carefully 
omitted. All the previous lessees of the coal mines (they say) had been careful " that 
the freehoulders, occupiers and tennantes of Kippax . . . weare never hindered,

which manor belonged to the Queen. In 15SS, Francis Bayldon of Kepax, gent., 
" pretendinge title " to the copyhold property, commenced an action for trespass in 
the Common Pleas against the plaintiff and Francis Beckwith, alleging that they, on 
August 20, 158S, had wrongfully entered into the same. The defendants pleaded not 
guilty, and the action was tried at the last Assizes heid at York Castle, before Francis 
Beamond, J.C.P., and Matthew Ewyns, B.E., then Justices of Assize. Baildon produced 
six witnesses, one of whom was Hillarie Baildon [his brother. These witnesses, accord- 
ing to Beckwith, all committed perjury in their description of the properly, as they 
stated that his freehold toft was copyhold. The discrepancies, as he puts them, are not 
very clear, and do not seem to be very material, but he says that " by reason of there

BAILDON AND 



SIR FRANCIS BAILDON, 1560 to 1622. 

Sir Francis Baildon, knight, 2.B., of Walton Head in the parish of 
Kirkby Overblow, Snaith, Kippax, Methley, and Blithborough (Suffolk), 
was possibly the eldest son of George of Methley, i.A. [ante, p. 1]. 
There is nothing to show whether he or his brother Hilary was the 
elder ; and their parentage is nowhere stated, though there is no reason- 
able doubt about it. 

15S2, Trinitv Term.— Francis Baldon, gent., and Frances his wife complained of 
Christopher Harryson and Laurence H. of Pannall, labourers, Alexander Ingle, 
labourer, Anthony Poole, yeoman, Henry Spence, labourer, these three of Walton 
Head, and George Wyndcr and Christopher Baxter of Goldsborough, yeoman, for 
assaulting Frances [Francisco] at Walton Head, and beating, wounding and ill-treating 
her, so that she despaired of her life. 1 

Same term. — Francis Baldon, gent., sued the said Christopher Harryson for 
slander. He, F.B., being a good, true and faithful liege of the Queen, and of good name 
and fame, bearing and condition, among good and grave men, as well his neighbours 
as other faithful subjects, nevertheless Harryson used scandalous words of him at 
York Castle, in the presence of many lieges, saying to him, "Yowc willed your man 
to steale a bee hyve of myne, and you receyved it when he had stolne yt." He claimed 
£40 damages. 2 

1582, Trinity Term.— Notts. William Chambers sued Francis Bayldon of Walton 
Head, gent., for a debt of £20. 3 

These three cases show that Francis had already married his first wife, Frances, 
daughter of Henry Johnson of Walton Head, by his wife Elizabeth, daughter of Richard 
Norton of Norton Conyers [see post, Note on the Johnsons ] . 

1583, January 12. — Francis Baildon of Waltonhead, gentleman, entered into a 
recognizance with Richard Goodrick of Ribston, esq., in the sum of £1,600. This 
sum was to be forfeited in case of the breach of any of the covenants or articles con- 
tained in "two payre of severall indentures," dated respectively January 8 and January 
10, 1583, and made between Baildon and "Frauncis his wyfe" of the one part and 
Goodrick of the other part. 4 

1583, Easter Term.— Fine between Richard Gocdricke, esq., plaintiff and Francis 
Baildo'n, gent., and Frances his wife, one of the daughters of Henry Johnson, esq., 
deforciants, of the manors of Leathley, Farnley [near Otley], and Waltonhead, and of 
80 messuages, 50 cottages, 10 tofts, a windmill, a watermill, 60 gardens, 20 orchards, 
600 acres of land, 200 acres of meadow, 400 acres of pasture, 300 acres of furze and 
heath, 300 acres of turbary, 300 acres of moss, and £3, 6s. %d. rent, in the same three 
places. The Baildons released all their rights to Goodrick, and they warranted 
against the heirs of Frances. 3 

1- ;. Easter Term.— Francis Baledon of Waltonhead, gent., Frances his wife, 
and Edward Chapman of Waltonhead, yeoman, were attached to answer William 
Knype, for breaking his close and house at Waltonhead in 15S2, putting cattle in his 
grass, seizing 60 loads of hay, cutting down 100 ash trees and 60 oaks, and taking 
40 loads of underwood. He claimed £100 damages. He also claimed £40 damages 
for trespass done in 15S1 and 1582 by a separate writ. 6

THE BAILDONS 9 

15S3, Trinity Term. — Francis Baildon of Waltonhead, gent., George Forest and 
John Angram, filed a bill of complaint in the Star Chamber against Richard Golds- 
borough, William Knype and Henry Dunwell. They recite that about 18 years ago, 
[which would be about 1565], Henry Johnson of Waltonhead, esq., father-in-law to 
Francis Baildon, being seised of the manors of Waltonhead, Farnley and Leathley, 
leased them (with other property) to Edmund Norton, gent., his brother-in-law, 1 for 
a term of 60 years, if Johnson should live so long. He is at present "in perfecte healrhe," 
and living at Waltonhead. The lease was made upon the understanding that Norton, 
his executors, admiiustralors and assigns, should hold all the premises comprised in 
it, to the use of Johnson, Elizabeth his wife, and of Elizabeth, Frances and Susan, 
their daughters, who were then infants of very tender age. Norton assigned the lease 
to William Burnande of York, esq., with notice of the trust, and he duly accounted for 
the income so long as he held it. Burnande subsequently assigned the lease to Richard 
Goldsborough, one of the defendants, "haveing also notice and good understanding 
of the foresaid use, truste and confidence ... he assureing and protesting the 
performance of the use and confidence, the rather for that he . . . had then 
maryed and yet hath to wyffe the forenamed Elizabeth, one of the dawghters of the 
said Henrye Johnson ; synce whiche tyme also, youre Maties said subjecte Frauncis 
Baildon hathe also maryed and taken to wyffe the forenamed Fraunces, one other of the 
dowghters of the said Henrye Johnson." Baildon thereupon became entitled to one 
fourth part 2 of the lands contained in the lease and of the rents and profits thereof. 
Goldsborough has not performed the said trust, for which Baildon has "nowe a longe 
tyme" sued him in the Court of Chancery. 3 Goldsborough, however, contemptuously, 
presumptuously and wilfully disobeys the process of that Court, and is at this present 
in contempt, for which a proclamation of rebellion has been issued against him. 
Baildon has even obtained an interim injunction against him and "his confederates 
ar.d adherents," "for the quyett establishing and enjoyeing of the possession of youre 
saide subject .... untill suche tyme as the same were hard and determyned 
in your Mats Courte of Chauncerye." 

Notwithstanding all this, Goldsborough, William Knype and Henry Dunwell, 
in Michaelmas Term last, "of theire fraudulent and evill disposed myndes, without 
cither feare of God or dreade of your Maties lawes in that case provided, confederated 
and conspired by subtill shifte of cosynage . . to have a secrete and covenous 
tryall of the foresaid leasse . . . thereby to defeate and infeble as moche as they 
could the lawfull possession and true interest of youre said subjecte, . . devysed 

that he the said Knype, as pleyntyf in your Mats Courte of Exchequor then holden at 
Hereford, should bringe an accion of trespasse . . againste the said Goldesbrough 
and also againste yor Mats said subjecte and Fraunces his wyffe, Henry Johnson, 
George Forrest, and John Angram, and dyvers others leassees and tenants unto . . . 
Frauncis Baildon, as defendaunts." This was accordingly done, but none of the de- 
fendants but Goldsborough knew anything about it, nor were they served with process. 
Goldsborough, "in manyfest contempte and deceite of that honorable Courte," 
retained an attorney in the name of the other defendants, one Richard Hatton, to act 
f>r them, and to plead in their names, without their consent or knowledge. "And 
further, to the intente theise theire pernitcious practise and cosonage myght be fulli 
lynished before yt should come unto the knowledge of your saide subjectes or anye 
the other supposed defendaunts, .... they the said Gouldesbroughe, Knype 
and Dunwell devised to lave their said accion in London, to th'intente they myght 
have theire tryall there, as afterwarde in the last term, being Hillarye tearme, they had 
the same tryed by Nisi Prius at Guilde Hall in London aforesaid. In whiche tryall 
theire yssue was whether the forenamed Henry Johnson did demyse or not demyse 
the lands or tenements aforesaid," and the question of the trust was not raised.

"That is, one fourth to Johnson and his wife, they being one i 1 la' ad one fourth to each of 
the three daughters. 

' 1 have not found these Chancery proceedings. 



io BAILDON AND 

Since the trial and verdict, 1 "so deceitfullie practised as aforesaid." Goldsborou^h and 
one Francis Palmes have made certain conveyances of part of the trust premises, 
"meanynge thereby to defraud your said subjecte and Fraunces his wife of their true 
use thereof, . . . althoughe the same leasse before bathe bene tried at Yorkc, in 
the countie where the same landes do lie, and the use and confidence thereof proved 
by verditt there." 

He prays for writs of subpoena against Goldsborough, Knype and Dunwell, in 
order that "condigne punyshemente" may be meted out for such "pernitious and 
detestable practises." 

The defence alleges that Baildon had sold his interest in the manors in question 
to Richard Goodrick, esq. ; that Henry Johnson had been attainted and convicted of 
high treason for participation in the Rebellion in the North Parts ; and that his lands 
being thereby escheated, Knype had obtained grants for years of them. - 

1583. — Richard Goldsbrough filed a counter complaint in the Star Chamber. 
He was owner (he says) of the manor of Goldsbrough, and also of the park there, which 
was well stocked with deer and all manner of game, being an ancient park of warren. 
On the night of November 2, 15S2, Richard Goodrick of Ribston, esq., Francis Baildon 
and Henry Goodrick, gentlemen, Thomas Walker and William Wyndler, yeomen, and 
some others, assembled at the park ; they were armed with swords, daggers, long 
piked staves, long bows, cross-bows, and arrows, and had with them many "grew- 
houndes." They posted sentries at the lodge, where George Wynder, Goldsbrough's 
keeper, lived, and took away his dog, a buck-hound; having thus provided against a 
surprise in that quarter, the others began to hunt the deer "wth their grewehoundes, 
and wth other engyns wch they had provided for that purpose." The keeper, however, 
managed to get out, and tried to get near the hunting party to ascertain who they were. 
But they shot arrows at him and would have killed him, but that they dared not come 
within distance, as the night was very light "by reason of the shynynge of the mune," 
and they were afraid the keeper would recognize them, as most of them lived within a 
mile of the park. So the whole party retired, but left some of their dogs behind them, 
which were captured by the keeper. 

Moreover, Goldsbrough has a lease of many years yet to come of the manors of 
Waltonhead, Farnley and Lcathley, which is referred to in more detail in the previous 
suit. Francis Baildon pretends title to a fourth part of these manors, and several 
times since January 1, 1581, he, accompanied by Henry Goodrick and some of the 
other defendants, has entered into possession and put in cattle to graze there. Further- 
more, Baildon had confederated with Richard Goodrick, "a m3n of great lyvinge and 
countenance," and had promised to convey his share of the said manors to Goodrick, 
though Baildon and those through whom he claims have not been in possession for 
five years past. 

There had been a trial at the "Guylde Halle," London, in Hilary Term last, 
before Sir Roger Manwood, Lord Chief Baron, where William Knype, who claimed 
as lessee under Goldsborough, was plaintiff, and Goldsbrough and others defendants. 
At the trial, Baildon suborned one William Burton to commit perjury, by swearing 
that at the Autumn Assizes in 1579, at York, before Judge Monson, he (Burton) 
had heard Edmund Norton depose that the lease of the said manors made by Henry 
Johnson to Norton was really made to the use of [that is, in trust for] Johnson himself, 
Elizabeth his wife, and his three daughters, Elizabeth, Frances and Susan ; whereas 
in fact Norton did not so depose. 

Goldsbrough has a yet a further ground of complaint. On May 31, 15S3, he 
had occasion to see Francis Palmer, esq., Justice of the Peace, of "Lyndley Hall," 3 and 
accordingly, he and George Knaggs and Edmund Johnson, his servants, rode over 

l The verdict is not set out, but it obviously was th 1' ' I < 1 1 1 [ol 1151 n ' 1' <!. mise. Baiklon 
and the others, being nominally defendants, and not raising the question of the trust, would be 
deemed to have waived it.

THE BAILDONS n 

to Lindley. On their way back, when they got to Follifait Rigge, a piece of waste 
ground between Follifait and Pannal, they perceived Richard Goodrick, Francis 
Baildon, Henry Goodrick, the perjured William Burton, and some four and twenty 
others, all on horseback, waiting in ambush. Goldsbrough and his party turned round 
and made off, pursued by the rioters, sword in hand. 

They managed to reach Pannal, where they entered the house of one Christopher 
Linthwait, and fastened the doors. The pursuers were clearly close on their heels, 
and had marked down the place of refuge. They battered at the doors and tried to 
get in, but failed. The whole town of Pannal came out at the uproar, demanding, 
very naturally, to know what it was ali about. Richard Goodrick was the spokesman 
of the besiegers ; he was merely trying, he said, to serve a Star Chamber writ. Golds- 
brough, evidently doubling the impregnability of Master Linthwait's castle, called 
out that he was willing to receive it, and Goodrick put "a little billett" over the door. 

But, however such a pretext might awe the good people of Pannal, Goldsbrough 
was not so easily deceived. The "little billett," it is true, purported to be a writ 
at the suit of Goodrick, but Goodrick had not shown him the seal, and he suspected 
that the writ was forged. He had search made at London, and failing to get any 
information at the Star Chamber as to the issue of any such writ, he took no notice 
of it. But shrewdness was not a monopoly of the house of Goldsbrough, for Burton, 
f.nding that the writ had not been obeyed, suborned one Robert Wytham to swear 
that he saw it duly served. 

For all of which misdemeanours he prays speedy remedy. 

The only Answer preserved is that of Richard Goodrick and William Burton. 
They firstly deny everything, in the coldly contemptuous ianguage deemed appropriate 
in such pleadings. Baildon, they say, had been in possession of all or a great part of 
the one fourth share claimed by him, more than a year before the supposed bargain 
between him and Goodrick. And they deny that the beseigers of Linthwait's house 
had any weapons with them. 1 

15S3, November S. — Witnesses were examined in Baildon's suit and their de- 
positions taken, but no further information can be get from them.- 

1583, November 24. — Depositions were taken in Goldsborough's suit, from which 
some interesting details can be gathered. 

William Burton, the alleged perjurer, is described as "of Clements Inne nere 
London." He admits that he was a witness at the trial, as stated by Goldsborough 
[lute, p. 10], but he says that Francis Baildon only asked him to depose "the trothe 
of his knowinge touchinge the same." 

Richard Goodrick confesses that on or about November 2, 1582, he and Henry 
Goodrick, Francis Baildon, Thomas Walker and William Wyndle, did go "into the 
place supposid by the plaintiff to be a parke,'' "to th'intente to hunte therein." Wyndle 

was posted "at the doore of the house termed by the plaintiff to be a lodge 

to th'intent to give warning to the rest yf the keper or any of the housholde dyd winne 
forthe." He admits the seizure of the buckhound, but this was on account of "somme 
dyscourtisyes shewid by the plaintiff to this deft," and when his keeper took the hound 
it was on Goodrich's land. He admits that the party hunted in the Park that night ; 
they had with them "eyther a lcashe or two brace of gruyhound.es ;" they "dyd kyll 
one deere" with their dogs, "and no more to his knowlidge." "This deft was then 
weaponed wth a sworde, Henry Goodrycke a shorte walking staffe, Francis Baildon 
a long staffe, Thorns Walker a bowe and arrowes, and Willm Wyndle a staffe." When 
Wynder, the keeper, came out, Walker shot at him once or twice. The valiant Wynder 
pursued them, notwithstanding this archery practice, whereupon "they fled awaye 
out of the grounds, and lefte one grayehounde behinde them." 

With regard to the disputed claim to the manor of Waltonhead, Goodrick states 

"that by reason he had an interest from Frauncis Bayldon this deft, accompanyed 

sometymes wth one or more of his scrvauntes, and somctymes alone, and sometymes

wth the same Bayldon, hathe entred into the grounde belonging to the same mannor 
and put catte 1 thereinto, and hathe also caryed awaye haye growing uppon the same, 
as he might lawlullye do." 

With regard to the famous encounter at Follifoot Rigg on May 31, he says that 
he rode over to Francis Baildon's house at Waltonhead on that day/with his kinsman 
Henry Goodrick, two servants, and a man of Mr. Burton's, "to conferre howe her 
Mats processe might be servid uppon the pi.," Burton's man being taken as a witness. 
lney evidently had some information that Goldsborough had gone to Lindley 
and was intending to come back that way. "And because this deft dowbtid leaste 
me pi. wolde come thorough the moore whyles this deft was in Bayldon's howse, 
he lerte one of Ins men to watche his cominge that waye." The rest of the party 
men evidently concealed themselves.. "So sone as his man espyed him [Goldsboroughl 
r.e cailid this deft and his said compenye, who came therfor furthwth out." Neither 

u °°° dncks carned an >' weapons, "or the saide Frauncis Bayldon, to his knowelidge 
neythcr had any one of his then companye any weapen other then suche as they 
usuallye ryde wthall." When Goldsborough saw the party waiting for him, he rode 
another way towards Pannal, pursued by Goodrick and the others "over a Becke 
called Crymple ; they followed him to Lvnthwait's house, "to serve the said pro- 
cesse. Goodrick does not remember saying that "the howse shulde not save hym," 
or any soche wordes." He had the writ with him, and served Goldsborough with 
a note in wrytyng of the day and place of th'apparaunce," which note was written 
by Francis Baildon. "He dothe not remembr whether he shewid him the stocke 
or seale of the wrytte or not." 1 

f r . Rl u chard N Goodrick > mentioned in these two documents, married Clare, daughter 
or Kicnard Norton of Norton Conyers, sister of Elizabeth wife of Henry Johnson ; 
he was thus uncle by marriage to Frances wife of Francis Baildon. He had bought

1583, Easter Term.— Norts. William Chambers sued Francis Bayldon of Walton 
Head, gent., lor £20, due on a bond dated at Fenton [probably Church Fenton, near

TVHE BAILDONS 13 

of Rawcliff, 1 gentleman, about 1565, and the various assignments thereof, in almost 
identical language with that in the Star Chamber Bill [ante, p. 9]. 

One William Justice had married Susan, another of Henry Johnson's daughters, 
who, about two years ago, assigned their interest in the lease to Francis Baildon for 
a term of 21 years. Francis thus claimed to have a half interest in Johnson's lease, 
namely, one quarter for the original term, in right of his wife, and one quarter for 
21 years. The original lease was then in Goldsborough's possession, and he had 
entered into the moiety of the said manors, and dispossessed Baildon. He had also 
threatened to expel Baildon from that part of the manor of Walton Head that he 
occupied. 

Goldsborough's answer asserted that Johnson was "geven to unthryftynes and 
excessyive expcnces, and havinge throughe occasion thereof solde and consumed a 
greate parte of his inherytaunce absolutlye awaye from him and his heyres," he sold 
certain lands called Tranmere 2 and Old Hall, both in Yorkshire, to William Hawks- 
worth, esq. These lands " were parcell of the jointure of Elizabethe Johnson wyfe 
of Henrye," and it was therefore necessary that Elizabeth should join in a fine, "to 
avoid and barre her for havinge any interest or dower therein after his, Henry's, 
decease, yf she did survive him." This she refused to do unless Henry would assure 
the rest of her jointure to some person nominated by her, "to th'entente he should 
have noe povver to dispose or medle therewithail duringe his lyfe." Henry agreed to 
this, "and did geve his faythfull promise to Master Justice Welshe and Master Serjaunt 
Powtrell, 3 then Justices of Assyse, to make the said assurance accordingly e." There- 
upon she joined in the fine to Hawksworth. 4 It was in pursuance of this arrangement 
that Johnson granted the lease to Edmund Norton. Soon afterwards "Johnson did 
enter into the late actuall Rebellyon in the North partes, and thereof was atteynted 
of Highe Treason." One William Knypc, "supposinge that the premisses were comme 
to the Quene's Majestie's handes" on account of Johnson's attainder, procured two 
leases of the said manors, and commenced proceedings in the Court of Exchequer, 
against Norton and others, to recover possession. Norton then assigned Johnson's 
lease to William Byrnande of Howden, esq., deceased, who, to Goldsborough's 
knowledge, had no notice of any trust attaching to it. He was a man "learr.ed in the 
lawes, and one who was greatly busyed with his clyentes causes ;" and Elizabeth 
Johnson was afraid "that he could not have tyme to defende the title againste Knype." 
She declared as much to Goldsborough, and also told him that some of the tenants 
had given her "divers sommes of money" for leases of their tenements, which she had 
promised to procure for them, and that she had borrowed "divers great sommes of 
moneye" for the defence of the lease. She therefore requested Goldsborough to 
get an assignment of the lease from Byrnand, and to make the leases promised by her 
to the tenants, and to repay the moneys she had borrowed, and to "allowe unto her 
some thinge for her mayntenance and staye of lyvinge, and that he would disburse 
some moneye for the charges of the pardon of the said Johnson, before that tyme 
obteyned."' Byrnand accordingly assigned the lease, and Goldsborough executed 
a bond to pav £200 "which was spente in defence of the title of the saide lease." 
Then Knype commenced proceedings before the Council of the North and elsewhere 
against Goldsborough, who was thereby "put to greate and excessyve charges, so that 
he was forced to let the premisses," and he granted leases of the greater part to the 
tenants. Knype's suit in the Exchequer was tried at the Guild Hall, London, before 
Sir Roger Man wood, Chief Baron, and a verdict was given for the defendants. These 
various legal proceedings have cost Goldsborough £900. Moreover, Francis Baildon,

while this suit was pending, had conveyed his interest to Richard Goodrick, so that 
he "had not anye tytle therein." 

Alexander Ingle, Christopher Harryson, Laurence Harryson and Henry Thornton, 
four other defendants to the bill, claimed as lesses from Goldsborough, and also alleged 
"somme mysdemenors practised by the plaintyf." 

About December 28 last, Baildon, Goodrick, and William Justice on the one part, 
and Goldsborough on the other part, "did submitte themselves to the awarde and fynall 
determynacion of John Norton, Richard Alboroughe and Willm Malyverer, Esquires, 
and Frauncis Tanckarde, gent., 1 arbytrators chosen by them to arbytrate and fynally 
determyne all sutes, variaunces, and troubles amongst the said parties, and that yf 
there were noe awarde made by the arbytrators before a certen daye, then the parties 
did submytte themselves to th'awarde and umperage of the Righte Honorable Henry, 
Earle of Huntt [ingdonV' 2 They entered into mutual bonds to insure the performance 
of the award. The arbitrators "did make no award before the said daye, for which 
cause the Earle, havinge had all the parties before him, and havinge hard their de- 
maundes, did make his awarde, which beareth date the xxiij daye of Zvlaye laste paste." 

On July 1, the Solicitor General on behalf of Baildon, moved for a subpoena 
against Goldsborough to show cause why the Earl's award should not be decreed, 
but as it contained a clause "that the plaintyf should not sue the def. for any matter 
conteyned therein," the Lord Chancellor, Sir Thomas Bromley, dismissed the suit 
without making any order as to costs. 3 

The effect of the award is not given, and I have not been able to find it, but as 
Baildon wished to have it decreed, it was presumably in his favour. 

15S5, October 12. — At the Kippax Manor Court, Francis Baildon, gent., was 
presented for several small offences. He was fined is. for putting a beast on the com- 
mon pasture more than he was entitled to ; 6d. for having geese there ; and 2d. for not 
cleaning the ditch or watercourse called the Sike. 4 

1586, April 4. — Francis was again fined 6d. at the Kippax Court, for keeping gce.;e 
contrary to the regulations. At the same Court the inhabitants of Kippax were lined 
lid. for not having bows and arrows and for not practising archery according to the 
Statute. 5 

1586, May 6. — A Commission was issued to Dennis Plompton and Christopher 
Vavasor, esquires, and Robert Long and Francis Bayldon, gentlemen, to take the 
depositions of witnesses in a complaint made in the Court of the Duchy of Lancaster 
by Robert Ramsden, clerk, against Clare Goodrick, widow, 6 and another, relating 
to a messuage and land at Timble. Witnesses were examined at Knaresborough on 
May 31, but Francis was not present on that occasion. A further Commission was 
issued to the same four persons on June 23, and depositions were taken at Knares- 
borough on August 24, when Francis attended. He signed the necessary documents 
in four places ; two of the signatures are spelt Bayldon and two Baildon. 7 It is 
somewhat amazing to our modern notions to find a man spelling his name in two 
different ways on the same document, but it is an excellent example of the utter in- 
difference of the people of this period to the spelling of their names. 

1586, Michaelmas Term. — Francis Bayldon sued Thomas Walker of Little 
Rib ton, yeoman, for £30 due on a bond dated January 16, 15S4. He obtained judg- 
ment for the debt and 30s. damages.

THE BAILDONS 15 

At the same time he obtained judgment against Thomas Chambers of North 
Deighton [between Wetherby and Knaresborough], yeoman, also for £30, a bond of 
the same date. 1 

1586, October 18. — The litigation with regard to Walton Head broke out anew. 
William Knype of Cartmell in Lancashire filed a Bill in the Star Chamber against 
Richard Goodrick, Edmund Norton, Richard Goldsborough and Henry Dunwell. 

We get once more the story of Henry Johnson, the rebel, and his lease to Norton 
[ante, p. 9], with a few useful additions. Knype states that after Johnson's attainder 
and forfeiture Queen Elizabeth, by letters patent, dated February 8, 1575, granted 
the manor of Walton Head to Edward Gresham, gent., and Percival Gunson, and 
their heirs for ever, to hold of the Crown of the manor of East Greenwich in free 
socage. Gresham released his interest to Gunson, who, "for a greatc somme of money," 
sold the manor to Knype. Thereupon Norton, "brother in lawe to the saide Henrye 
Johnson, yor Highnes' rebell," put in a claim "by color of a certaine false and covenous 
wry tinge under seale, made in the name of the said Henrie Johnson, beringe date 
the fowerthe daye of Marche in the fowerthe yere of yor Matics raygne" [1562]. This 
was the lease of which we have already heard so much, the date of which is here 
mentioned for the first time. This document, says Knype, "was forged longe sythence 
the date thereof, about the time of the saide Rebellion or sythence, for the purpose of 
fraude, and antidated." No consideration was expressed in the lease, Johnson 
himself remained in possession and received the rents, made leases, and shortly belore 
his attainder sold part of the land. 2 Norton never made any claim until after Johnson's 
attainder, when he sold the lease to Burnand, here called "Wyllm Burnerd, Esquire, 
neare kinseman to the wyf to the said Rebell, 3 to the ende the same myght be bolstred 
and borne onte by Burnarde, he beinge a man learned in the lawes." At this time 
"the wyfFe of the said Johnson, by the sufferaunce of Burnerd, :oke the whole rents 
and profitts thereof diverse yeres after the attainder of her husband." 

Afterwards, "for that the said lease was lyke to be drawen in question of lawe 
on the behalf of yor Hyghnes," Bernard assigned it to Goldsborough, "who maried 
one of the daughters of the said Rebell." He entered, and turned out Knype, "and 
toke the profitts divers yeres." Thereupon Knype, "for eschewinge of suite and 
troble, was dryven and did compound with Gouldburghe, and gave hym the somme 
of £300, in money and moneyworthc, for the saide pretenced tcrme, and obtayned 
a deed of assygnmente thereof unto Allen Wyllson, a frend of truste," dated March 

I 7> 1 5^3- 

Nevertheless, Goldsborough, Goodrick ("nephewe to the wyfe of the said Rebell"), 
Norton, and Dunwell (Goldsborough's servant) have confederated together, and 
"betweene them have made and contrived a wryunge of assygnmente of the said lease 
from Gouldbourghe solye, or from him and Barnarde, to the saide Edmonde Norton, 
and antedated it before the assignemente made by Gouldbourghe" to Knype. 

He also alleges that they and Johnson "have made and contrived on other false 
and fraudulente deed, antedated," purporting to be a feoffment of all the said manors 
to the use of himself and his wife for life, with remainder to the use of his daughters 
and their heirs ; "whiche deed had never anie execucion." Nevertheless, Goodrick, 
on ihe strength of this deed, and oi' some "pretended tytles" lately bought from 
Johnson's daughters and their husbands, had turned Knype out of Walton Head. 
Knvpe brought an assize of novel disseisin against him, which was tried at York 
Ass'izes on March 17 last, before Mr. Justice Clench. Goodrick and his confederates 
then swore "that the said fraudulente deeds were good and true deeds, made uppon 
good consideracions, bona fide, wythoute fraude, whiche so farr prcvayled with the 
recognitors of the saide assyse that they acquited Goodericke and his coadjutors of 
the saide disseisin."

16 BAILDONAND 

There was a delay of eighteen months between the Bill and Goodrick's Answer, 
which was sworn on May 12, 158S. He said that Francis Baildon married Frances, 
one of the daughters of Henry Johnson (which Frances was then dead), " in con- 
sidcracion of a greate somme of money," sold to him a third part of the said manors, and 
conveyed the same to him by a fine and other conveyances about five years ago. 
He denied all the story as to forgery, fraud and conspiracy. 1 

158S, May 16. — Goodrick was examined on behalf of the plaintiff. He deposed 
that he had seen all the various deeds referred to in the Bill ; that the hand and seal 
on the lease "is the hande and seale of the sd Henry Johnson ;" that he "hath bought 
and obtaynyd the interest and tytle of Frauncis Bailedon to the premisses, and by that 
meanes this deponent doth holde the said Bailedon his parte ;" and that he duly entered 
into possession. 

There was a further delay of two years before anything further was done. 

1590, May 12. — Depositions on behalf of the plaintiff Anthony Taylor of the 
parish of Kirkbye Overblawes, blacksmith, aged 60, said that the Queen granted 
to Knype "the capitall howse of East Hall and the landes thereto belonging, being 
parccll of the mannor of Leathley." These Knype has assigned to Francis Pallmes, 
Esq., and John Lynley [Lindley], gent., who "doe yet enjiye the same." Francis 
Baj'lden and Frances his wife never occupied or enjoj-ed the manors of Farnley and 
Leathley. He then gave estimates of the values of the three manors either for sale 
or by the year, viz. : Waltonhead £50 a year, £1000 on sale, Leathley £40 a year, 
£1000 and more on sale, "before yt was dysmembred," Farnley £36 a year, £1000 or 
near it on sale, "before the dysmembring thereof," Farnley and Leathley, "being 
dys me inbred," not more than £600 each. 

Francis Pallmes of Laumbeth, Surrey, esq., aged 35, said that about ten years 
ago "Fr. Baldone" and his wife offered to sell him their interest in the three 
manors ; he took the opinion of Mr. [Edmund^ Plowden, who " did advyse this 
deponent not to medle therein." He also goes into the question of valuation ; his 
estimates are a good deal lower than Taylor's. 

John Lyndleye of Leathley, gent., aged 40, was examined on July 2, 1590. He 
stated that Goldsborough offered Knype £1000 for the manor of Waltonhead, and 
that Plowden's opinion was "that the sd Fr. Balden had not any right in him to make 
the same sale." 2 

1590, October 6. — Examination of the defendants' witnesses. 

Anthony Teyle of York, yeoman, aged 54 . On September 2,1568, Henry Johnson 
enfeoffed Thomas Markenfield and Francis Norton, as before mentioned ; the deed 
is now produced to him ; it was sealed and delivered in his presence ; the deed was 
sealed and delivered on the day of the date thereof, or within one week after, "at the 
howse of one Henry Mayc, nowe one of the Alderman of the City of Yorke, scittuatt 
in a streete there callid Conye Streete." There were present at the execution of the 
deed, "one Willm Tanckard, who was of Councell in the drawinge of the said deed, 
and allso one Peter Benson, and others whose names are indorsed uppon the said 
deed, wch was ingrossed by this deponent." 

Peter Benson of Knaresborough, yeoman, aged 44, also identified the deed ; 
"Mr. Tanckard, this deponent's then Mr.," was present when it was executed. 

Henry Johnson of Waltonhead, esq., "agid threscore & one yeres," deposed to 
the terms of the deed of feoffment, and names six witnesses in whose presence he 
sealed it. Thomas Markenfield and Francis Norton, the feoffees, appointed John 
Markenfield and Laurence Bayne to take livery of seisin, and they did so about 
Christmas afterwards, at all three manors. His wife has told him that the Countess 
of Northumberland attorned tenant to the feoffees, and he knows that Edmund Norton 
did so.

THE BAILDONS 17 

Alice Burnett wife of Henry Burnett of Waltonhead, aged 40, remembered Johnson 
giving possession of the house at Waltonhead to the feoffees. He "caused all his 
people to gow out of his howse," and then delivered seisin to John Markenfield and 
Laurence Bayne to the use of the feoffees. "This she knowithe to be trew for that 
she was present and sawe all the same donne, and this deponent was one of those 
wch were shutt or putt fourthe of doores by the sd Mr. Johnson." 

Leonard Cowlton of Micklefield, yeoman, aged 57, said that Mistress Johnson 
went to the old Countess of Northumberland to "Bromesall," "and beeingc come 
thither besought her Ladishippe, in the hearing of this deponent, beinge then attending 
uppon his said Mistress, to attornc to the feoffees mencioned in a deed of feoffment 
made by the husbande of the said Mris Johnson ; whercunto the said Countesse 

yeilded and agreed, saying unto the said Mris these words, viz. : 'God 

give yow good if it, and sende yow lucke wth it, seeing it is for yor children,' with 
other words of frendshippe." 

Francis Bayldon of Kippax, gent., aged 30, gives another account of this interview. 
"He hard Mris Johnson .... a littell before her deatbe, say and reporte (uppon 
some speche wch passed betwixt her and this deponent) that she had byn a sutor 
to the old Countesse of Northumberland to attorne unto the feoffees in a deed of 
feoffment made by her husband Henrye Johnson, wherunto the said Countesse 

dyd not only yielde and agree, but allso said that of it had byn to have 

donne the husband of the said Mris Johnson anye good, she would not, nor had not 
any reason so to doe ; but forsomuch as the same her attornment tendid to the good 
of the children of the said Mris Johnson, she, the said Countesse was content to attorne 
wth all her harte — or wordes to that effecte." 




1591, May 19. — Further examination of Richard Goodrick. He said that he 
was lawfully in possession of the lands and tenements in controversy at the time when 
Knype exhibited his Bill of complaint, and was then and had been since in receipt 
of the rents and profits. Anthony Pole, one of his tenants, had shown him a copy 
of an injunction of the Court of Star Chamber, commanding Pole and the other tenants 
to deliver possession to Knype of such lands as Knype was possessed of at the date 
of his Bill. They had not obeyed the injunction, because Knype was not in possesion 
of any part of the said lands at that date. He advised his tenants rot to pay rent to 
Knype, nor acknowledge him as their landlord. '- 

1587. — Edmund Kighlcy of Gouldisbroughe, gent., and Anne his wife and Raynold 
Jaicke of G., made complaint to the Star Chamber against Richard Goldsborough 
and a large number of his friends. In order to make this intelligible it will be necessary 
to narrate the circumstances leading up to it.

J 8 BAILDON AND 

Edmond Kighley and his wife and Raynold Jaicke of Goldsbrough accordingly 
hied their bill. Anne and her husband are seized of the mannor of Goldsborough, 
the Hall and the Park, and other property there. They leased the Hall and other 
property to Jaicke for a term of years, and he entered into possession. Richard 
Goldsborough, Miles Elsworthe, and others, thereupon turned him out, and he brought 
an action against them for so doing. This action was tried at York Castle in 1586, 
before Mr. Justice Clenche, and "after longe and deliberat heringe," the jury found 
for the plaintiff. 3 

Apparently Goldsborough went off the moment the verdict was givep, and what 
follows seems to have been deliberately planned. "Before judgment gyven (we are 
told) the said Richard Gouldisbrough, Frauncis Baildon, gentle, Will Justice, gentle, 
Launcelot Preston, Anthony Gouldisbroughe, Charles Gouldisbroughe, Richard 
Gouldisbroughe younger (and forty-five others 1 ), of thcr develishe and wickid myndes, 
did, m most ryotous and unlawful] mannour assemble them together with dyvers 
others unknowne, and did utterlie deface and pull downe to the ground the foresaid 
capitall mesuage called Gouldisbroughe Hall, and all the barnes, stables, dovecotes, 
brewhouses, and kilnes, and one new buyldinge callid Aldbroughe Parlor, 2 and all 
the edefices and buyldings therunto belonginge ; and did saw and cut in sunder the 
pnncipall postes and tymber therof, and did breake in peccs all such archler [ashlarl 
stones, mullyons and table stones, as might have servid agayne for the reedifiynge 
of the same. By reason wherof the said capitall mesuage ys utterlve distroyed, and 
nothinge remaynynge but onclie the soile or ground where the house did stand ; beyinge 
a house of ancyent tyme and contcnewance, and worth to have bene sould, before the 
pullinge downe thereof, one thousand poundes at the least. And after the pullinge 
downe thereof the said Richard Gouldisbroughe, and the other persons beforenamed, 
did not onelye carrye such tymber and stones there unto other places, to there ownc 
uses, but also did in ryotous mannor, havinge a great nomber in there companye to 
yor said Orators unknowne, repayre to the said parke called Gouldisbroughe Parke, 
and there, wth force and armes, did pull downe a great quantitye of the pale of the 
said parke, and in like ryotous mannr did drvve out thre score of the dere, whereby 
there ys no dere left." 

After judgment was given, Jaicke obtained a writ to the Sheriff to put him in 
possession of Goldsborough Hall and the other premises, which was done on May 17, 
after the Assizes, probably in 15S6. Notwithstanding this, Richard Goldsborough 
and the other persons have again ejected Jaicke, and" have entered into possession 
of the remainder of the manor of Goldsborough, "and wth force and armes, beyinge 
weapned wth dyvers and sundric unlawful! wapons, do in most riotous mannr kepe 
the possession of the said premises ; and have of lait made dwers and great assaltes 
and affrayes upon Laurence Kighley, brother of the said Edmund Kighley, Robte 
Hall, and other the servantes of the said Edmund Kighley." They also continue 
to pull down and carry away the rest of the park pale and" fences. 

Further, Anthony Goldsborough and Richard How, two of the defendants, 
on June 3 last, probably 15S6, "bcying weaponed wth longe pyked staves and daggers, 
did, at Gouldisbroughe aforesaid, make one great and havnous assalt and afray upon 
I horns Wild, one of the servantes of the said Edmund Kishlev an \ beyinse kepper 
ot the said parke, and did, wth the pike of one of there staves,' thrust the said Waid 
into his theighe, and did also wth one dagger, beying made of one sword blad, sore 
wound the said Thorns Waid upon his arme and shoulder, wherupon he died." 

Only one Answer has been preserved, that of William Bowling and Thomas 
Emonson, dated May 20, 1587. They pleaded the General Pardon passed by Parlia- 
ment on February 15, 1587. 3

history of Walton Head and the Johnsons a stage further, and therefore must be 
shortly referred to. 

1592, Michaelmas Term.— The Attorney General, then Thomas Egerton, 11 
filed a Bill in the Court of Exchequer against Richard Gouldesboroughe, Richard 
Goodrycke, and others, alleging that they had got possession of the deeds and evidences 
relating to the manors of Walton Head, Leathley and Farnley (late the property of 
Henry Johnson, and now of the Queen by virtue of Johnson's attainder), and had 
entered into the premises, and brought actions at Common Law, with a view to avoiding 
the Queen's title. 

Richard Goldsborough's answer was sworn on May 25, 159^ ; he pleads the deed 
of feoffment of September 2, 156S, which has been so often referred to. lie admits

having divers ancient deeds and evidences, and he will see if any of these refer to the 
three manors ; there are other deeds in a chest at ililstone, of which he and Goodrick 
have the keys. 

Samson Ingleby, 1 another defendant, says that he entered into the manor of 
Leathley as servant to and by orders of Henry, Earl of Northumberland, apparently 
some years ago. Arthur Johnson [Sir Thomas's second son] had a lease of West Hall 
in Leathley for a term of 40 years from the death of Alary, Countess of Northumber- 
land, who died about 20 years ago. Arthur Johnson assigned this lease to Robert and 
John Waterhouse of Har thill, to the use of their sister Anne, Johnson's wife.- After 
Arthur's death, Robert Witham, another defendant, married his widow, and they now 
occupy West Hall. 

Goodrick's answer was taken by Sir Richard Mauleverer and Francis Baildon, 
gent., under a commission dated July 4. He admits that he has in his custody certain 
evidences touching the manor of Walton Head, and says that he has good right to it 
and to them. [In bad condition.]. 3 

1592, October 13. — Francis was at Kippax and served on the manor jury. He was 
fined Ed. for having his cattle in the common fields. He surrendered certain lands 
there to William Taillior, who surrendered certain other lands to him ; as also did 
Thomas Rawson. 4 

1592-3, Hilary Term.— John Watson sued Brian Hamond of Skardingwell 

[Scarthingweir, esq., Robert Taylboyes of , co. Durham, esq., 

Thomas Bankes of Gaynesbroughe. gent., and Francis Baildon of Kepas, gent., for a 
debt of £35.° 

1592-3, Hilary Term. — John Watson sued Francis Baldon or Bayldon of Kippax, 
gent., for £j, 12s. 4^. due on a bond, for certain parcels of merchandise. Judgment 
of the plaintiff, with 33s. ^d. damages. 6 

1592-3, Hilary Term. — William Knipe of Cartmell Fell, Lancashire, commenced 
fresh proceedings in the Court of Exchequer, with regard to Walton Head. The Bill 
recited a former decreee in that Court, dated February 12, 1592, that he was to have 
quiet possession of a capital messuage and 300 acres of land in Walton Head, and 
ordering Richard Tempest, esq., John Lyndley, gent., and Matthew Hoppey, gent., 
to inquire as to mesne profits. He had proved by competent witnesses that about 
May 31, 1576, Richard Goldesborough had entered into possession, and had taken 
profits for three years amounting to £40 a year ; then Francis Baildon entered, and 
took the profits at the same rate for another three years ; then Richard Goodrick, who 
"ys a gentleman of great estate and countenance in the cuntrye," took the profits until 
May 1, 1592 [about 10 yearsj. Goodrick has also cut down 100 oaks, worth £18, 
and has allowed the houses to fall into decay and become very ruinous. Altogether 
Goldsborough has had £120, Baildon £100, and Goodrick £416, which sums the 
plaintiff seeks to recover. The Bill was drawn by Richard Hutton. 

Goodrick and Baildon put in a joint answer in Easter Term. 7 They prayed that 
the Bill might be dismissed, on the ground that Knipe had a complete remedy at 
Common Law, and that the matter had already been decided several times, both in 
the Court of Exchequer and elsewhere, and several verdicts had been given against 
him. 8 

1592-3, February 10. — A Commission was issued to Thomas Blande, esq., John 
Lyndley, Francis Bayldon and Leonard Rereslye, gentlemen, to take the depositions

1594, August 19. — Depositions at Knaresborough. 

Francis Baildon gave evidence in a suit in the Court of Requests, in which his 
father-in-law, Richard Goodrick, was the defendant. 

Bill of Complaint, filed July 20, 1593, of Henry Topclife of London, gent., "late 
the servaunt and poore kynsman 1 of Richard Goodrick of Create Ribstone in the 
Countye of Yorke, Esquire," [the defendant's father]. The said Richard Goodricke, 
"of his meare motion," by his will bequeathed an annuity to the plaintiff, in these 
words : — "Item, I gyve unto one Henry Topclife, my cosyn, whom I brought up of a 
boye, for and in consideracion of his good service don to me and to be don to my 
heires," an annuity for his life of five marks, [£3, 6j. Sd.] issuing out of my said lands 
and tenements, with power of distress, etc. After the death of his said late master, 
the plaintiff made tender of his service unto the Worshipfull Richard Goodricke, 
Esquire, sonne and heire of his said late xMr., but he refused to accept of the same or to 
gyve yor Highnes' subject any intertaynemt, but lycensed him to departe and to serve 
elles where, as he could best provide for him self." About two years ago, [in 1591], 
Mr. Goodricke was appointed High Sheriff of Yorkshire, and he then sent to the 
plaintiff "to his servyce for that yere onely." The plaintiff, "thoughe it were some 
hinderaunce unto him to departe from the service wherein he then was," repaired 
with all convenient speed to Goodricke's house in Yorkshire, and for that year served 
him "faithfully, paynefully and diligently." After the appointment of the new Sheriff, 
he was discharged by Goodrick, who paid him five marks, but whether for his wages 
or for one year's annuity, he knoweth not. The testator, the defendant's father, died 
in January, 24 Elizabeth, [Jan. 8, 1581-2], and ever since his death the defendant has 
refused to pay the annuity. The plaintiff dare not distrain for the arrears, as provided 
by the will, for "the said Mr. Goodrick is a man of great worship and might in his 
county," and the defendant is "a poore servinge man, for the most parte resident and 
remayninge in yor Mats Citie of London." 

The Answer of Richard Goodricke, Esquire. 

Richard Goodricke, this defendant's father, had his last will and testament "redye 
made bye the space of nyen or tenn yeares before his death." A little before he died, 
he called for this will, which was brought to him, and "it playnlie appered that that 
parte of the said will wherebye the said annuitie . . . [was] supposed to be 
given to the saide Complt, was (emongst other thinges) raced and put owt of the saide 
will, and that the same had bene so raced and done bye the saide Richard Goodricke, 
the Testator himself, before that tyme." 

Depositions taken at Knaresborough, August, 19, 36 Elizabeth, 1594. 

Francis Bayldon of Kepax, gent., about th'age of xxxiij yeres, sworne and examined 
on the party and behalf of Richard Goodricke, Esquyer, the defendt. 

He knoweth the pi. and defendt, and did knowe the said Richard Goodricke, 
esquyer, deceased. The said Richard Goodricke, esq., before his death did call for his 
will, and the said will was brought unto him accordingly, by the nowe defendt, about 
two daies before the death of the said Richard Goodricke ; and this he [Baildon] 
knoweth to be trewe, for that he, this deponent, was then present. The said will was 
then openly redd before divers witnesses, wch the said Richard Goodricke hadd pur- 
posive sent for to heare the same, viz., before Robt Ramsden, Arehedeacon, Robt 
Cloughe and William Danbie, in the presens of this deponent and divers others, about 
two daies before his death. At the tyme of the reading of the said will, he, this depont 
did nether rede the same nor vevve it, but the same nyght he sawe the said will, after it 
was redd as aforesaid, and then it appeared to this depont, by the same will, that the 
said legacyc of iij//' . v)s. viijtf. was rased and quyte put furth of the said will. This 
will nowe showed unto this examinate in paper, and whereunto this depont name is to 
the codicill, is the very same will that was brought upp to the testator by the defendt 
and then and there redd, before the death of the testator, and before the making of the 
codicill.

Sir Richard Maleverer. 

April 1 6, 37 Elizabeth [1595]. 

Certificate of Sir Richard Maleverer, "geven at my house of Allerton Mauleverer." 
He has examined the parties and the depositions. The plaintiff has not sufficiently 
proved the contents of his Bill, but the defendant has proved the matters contained in 
his Answer. "Whereupon I traviled to end the sayd controversye betwene them ; 
but the defendt answered directly that as the sayd pi. had begonne to proceed against 
him in lawe, even so he mente to answer him by lawe." 1 

1595, Easter Term. — Francis Baildon, gent., sued William Beckwith of Raw-

1595, June 22. — Deed Poll of Francis Baildon the elder of Kippax, gent., in 
pursuance of certain covenants contained in an indenture made between Francis 
Haldenby the elder of Haldenby, Esquire, and Francis Baildon. This was a settle- 
ment on the marriage of Francis Baildon the younger, and Elizabeth daughter of 
Robert Haldenby, son and heir of Francis Haldenby. Baildon had already conveyed 
certain property to Hiiary Baildon of Snaith and Anthony Haldenby of Crowle, co. 
Lincoln, as feoffees or trustees. The property settled consisted of Kippax Hall and 
all other messuages and cottages, lands, and so forth, in Kippax, except "one tithe 
called Clementetythe in Kipax." The trusts were as follows : one half or moiety of 
all the above property was to be held to the use of Francis the elder and Margaret his 
wife for their lives ; and after the death of the survivor of them, to Francis the younger 
and Elizabeth his wife, and the heirs male of their bodies ; with remainder to the heirs 
male of the body of Francis the younger ; with remainder to the heirs male of the body 
of Francis the elder ; with remainder to the right heirs of Francis the elder. The other 
moiety was settled in the same way, with the exception that Elizabeth, the wife of 
Francis the younger, was not mentioned, and the estate in special tale to her male 
heirs was omitted. 4

quit-claimed to Henry and Margery and the heirs of Henry, and they warranted 
against themselves and" the heirs of Francis, and against William Ingleby, esq., and his 
heirs, and against the heirs of Richard Burnand, esq., deceased. 6 I cannot explain 
these warranties. The property appears to be part of that purchased in 1594 [ante, 
P- 21]. 

[598, Michaelmas Term. — Fine between John Crotte alias Carver and Agnes his 
wife, plaintiffs, and Francis Baildon, gent., and Margaret his wife, deforciants, of three

due on a bond dated January 28, 1598. '• 

1602, September 4. — Thomas Goldesborough of Goldsborough, esq., now 
deceased, by deed dated November 8, 1556, leased the manor of Kexbrough and other 
property there and in the parishes of Darton and Cawthorne to Nicholas Savile of 
Newhall near Elland, esq., now deceased, his heirs and assigns, at a yearly fee-farm 
rent of £11, payable "at the font stone of the parishe churche of Goldesbroughe." 
This rent had descended to Richard Goldesborough of Waltonhead, esq., Thomas's 
son, who now mortgaged it to Francis Bayldon of Kippax, gent., for £21, subject to 
the life interest of Cicely wife of John Emott of Farnham, clerk. 3 There was a pro «iso 
for redemption on payment of £21 within the next five years "at the nowe dwellinge 
house of the said Frauncis Bayldon in Kippax." 4

1603. — On the 23rd of July (says Nicholls) not less than 300 Gentlemen reaped the

After 1603. — Sir William Vavasour of Hazlewood compiled a fist of manors and 
their lords within ten miles of Hazlewood. The manor of South Milford, near 
Pontefract, in the parish of Sherburn in Elmete, is put down as belonging to Sir 
Francis Baildon. I believe this to be an error, as I have found no evidence to support 
it, in the Feet of Fines or elsewhere.

evidence of witnesses in a cause pending in the High Court of Admiralty between 
Matthew Robson and Robert Redhead, esq. 2 The Commissioners appear to be 
divided into two parties, each consisting of two knights and one esquire, and each 
group was probably nominated by one of the parties to the cause. Sir Francis and 
two fellows, Sir Hugh Bethell and Marmaduke Marshall, appear to represent the 
defendant, Robert Redhead.

ill Consequence of such Contentions, an Order was made at Becclcs Sessions, October 
2, 1609, with the Privity and Consent of the chiefest Inhabitants of Walberswick, that 
none but old Men, who had spent their former Days in Fishing-Fare, should occupy 
the coasting Business for Butter, &c, and that the young Men should diligently attend

to the Destruction of a Nursery that bred up fit and able Masters of Ships, and skilful 
Pilots, for the Service of the Nation. And for the Preservation thereof, only eight 
Vessels, with their Crews, were appointed to Trade as aforesaid ; and regularly to take

By an Indenture dated July 6, 1615, Sir Edward Tinvhitt and his trustees, in

shire, to Thomas Colby and Cuthbert Baildon for 99 years. 

On July 6, 1615, Sir Francis and others demised the manor of Irforth Sotherey 
Place, the site of Irforth Priory and a house and land at Caborne, in Lincolnshire, to 
Thomas Colby and Cuthbert Baildon ; see post under Cuthbert Baildon, 1626. 

1615, November 5. — Sir Francis Baildon made his will at this date, in which he 
describes himself as of Medley (Methley). It is very long, and difficult to condense, as 
he deals with all his property in detail. He desires to be buried where he should die. 

He gives to Dame Anne his wife, his lease of half Phippins Park in Snaith and 
Cowick, of which he has two leases, one granted by Elizabeth and the other by James 
I.j for life or the remainder of the term, she paying half the rent. She was also to have 
certain other lands in Snaith and Cowick for life. 

The capital messuage called Kippax Hall was left to Francis Baildon, his grandson, 
son of his son Francis, deceased, also another house in Kippax ; he was to have one 
half immediately, and the other half on the death of his mother, Elizabeth, then the 
wife of William Powe. This property was settled on Francis the grandson and the heirs 
male of his body, with remainder to the right heirs of the testator. Half the interest in 
the coal mines in Kippax was also given to Francis ; the profits were to be accumulated 
during his minority for the purpose of building a house at Kippax. All timber requisite 
was also given to him, but it was not to be used for any other purpose than the 
house. 

The profits of the other half of the coal mines were to be accumulated until they 
amounted to 200 marks [£133 6s. Sd.], and then this sum was to be divided between the 
other two children of Francis II, Gilbert and Margaret. After this, the half of the 
coal mines was given to the testator's sons, Richard, Cuthbert, Martin, Henry, and 
Thomas, for the remainder of the lease. 

A copyhold messuage in Kippax was given to William Powe and Elizabeth his 
wife [widow of Francis II], for their lives, and then to Cuthbert and Martin ; but this 
gift to the Powes was conditional on their conveying all their interest in the testator's 
freehold lands to Cuthbert and Martin. Cuthbert and Martin were to have all the 
remaining copyholds except the profits of the first five years, which were to go to 
Richard and Henry. 

Richard and Henry were to have the tithes of corn, grain, wool and lambs in Kip- 
pax, except the profits of the first five years, which were to be accumulated. 

Thomas was to have certain messuages and lands in Cadeby [near Doncaster 

after the death of Barwick ; a messuage and lands called Eringdon Park, 

bought of Master Readhead ; a windmill in Stainforth [near Thorne and Doncaster] ; 
certain lands in Snaith, after the death of Dame Anne ; the advowson of the Rectory 
of Leathley ; and some leaseholds in Swaneland.

Tirwhitt and Sir Francis Baildon, to secure the payment of £1,100 by Sir Edward 
Tirwhitt to Sir Francis at Michaelmas, 1617. Tirwliitt is to be forgiven £100, and, if 
he pays the £1,000, it is to be dealt with in the following way. The testator had in- 
tended to give his daughter Meriall a portion of £500, and had bought certain bonds 
in her name ; the amount of these bonds was to be made up to £500. Then £400 was 
to be paid to Sir Henry Goodrick of Ribston, Knight, for the benefit of the testator's 
daughter, Clare wife of Laurence Kighley, and her child. The balance was to be 
divided between Richard, Cuthbert, Martin, Henry and Thomas. If Tirwhitt did not 
pay, the lease was to be sold, and the proceeds divided in the same way. 

Provision was made for keeping Thomas " at schoole and Universitie." 

A rent of £11 payable out of the manor of Kexborough was left to the testator's 
nephew Richard Goldsborough and Elizabeth his mother, and the heirs male of 
Richard, with remainder to Clare Kighley. 

Sir Thomas Leeds and his wife and Sir John Leeds their son, were requested to 
surrender to Cuthbert and Martin certain copyhold lands in Kippax bought and paid 
for by the testator. 

Dame Anne was to have £100 in satisfaction to all her right to any other of the 
testator's goods or lands ; also all her " apparell, Jewells, coatch, coatch-horses, and 
furniture." He gave his best horse to "my son Colebie " ; £13, 6s. Sd. to Francis 
Colebie, my godson ; £10 to each of his wife's younger sons ; and £50 to Anne Colebie, 
his wife's daughter.

one part, and John Goodman of Blakesware, co. Hertford, esq., and John, his son and 
heir apparent of the other part. Baildon, Rookwood and Rowlte are seised of one 
third of the manor of Wenslcydale, co. York, in trust for Smith, who has contracted 
to sell half of the said third part to the Goodmans. They accordingly convey the same 
at Smith's request. The manor had been conveyed to them by Ludovic, Duke of 
Lennox. 

1616, May 16. — Ludovic, Duke of Lennox, by an indenture dated August 11, 
1614, by the procurement of John Throckmorton of Rollright, co. Oxford, esq., John 
Colby of Layston, co. Suffolk, esq., Samuel Hales of Barking, co. Essex, esq., and 
Henry Goodrock of Temple Newsome, co. York, esq., and in consideration of £10,000 
paid by them, conveyed to Sir Francis Baildon, Thomas Rookwood and Edward 
Rowlte, the lordship or manor of Wenslcydale. Another indenture of the same date 
declared that Baildon, Rookwood and Rowlte were to hold the property in trust, as to 
one third, for Throckmorton, one third for Colby, and one third for Hales and Good- 
rick. They now at Colby's request conveyed his one third to him. 

1616, May 16. — Goodrick had released his interest to Hales, who had agreed to 
sell his one third to Sir Thomas Smith of Bidborough, co. Kent, Knight. Baildon and

1627, November 9. — An order was made in Dame Anne's suit against Sir Thomas 
Dawney and Sir Henry Goodrick. The defendant's Counsel said that their names had 
been used by Sir Francis Baildon " vvth out theire privitic " ; that Cuthbert's Bill 
against them had been settled by a Decree of the Court ; and that Dame Anne's Bill 
was long and unnecessary. It was ordered that their personal attendance might be 
dispensed with. 

1634, April 18. — Administration of the personal estate of Sir Francis, not ad- 
ministered by Dame Anne, was granted to Martin Baildon, the son. 

1630, October I. — Dame Anne Baildon made her will. She was then living at 
Drousfield in Derbyshire. She mentions that she is weake and sicke of bodie, but 
" of good and perfect memory," and then goes on to recite her pious beliefs, in the 
manner of the time. She gives an annuity of £12 to her dear and well-beloved sister, 
Jane Ascham, widow, and a legacy of £20 ; also " a silver beere boule and a trencher 
salt of silver and guilt." To the poor of the parish where she shall happen to die, she 
gives 40s., and 105. to " such Reverend Minister as shall preach at my funerall." She 
gives a gold ring of 20s. value to her son-in-law, Edward Hawkins, gentleman, and 
another of 10s. value to his wife. She appoints her grandchild, Mary Hawkins, 
residuary legatee and devisee and sole executrix. 

The will was proved by Mary Hawkins on February 12, 1630-1. 

After Cuihbeit's death fresh Letters of Administration to the unadministered 
estate of Sir Francis were granted to Martin, dated April 17, 1649.

1622.

34 BAILDONAND 

1623, November 11. — Anne, widow of George Mirfeild, gentleman, deceased, 
surrendered to Thomas Lownsdale of Cowick all her right and interest in certain lands 
in Snaith and Cowick, which lands Thomas had by surrender from the said George. 

She also surrendered various lands in Snaith and Cowick to Robert Hawtene, his 
heirs and assigns. 1 

Sir Francis Baildon was tour times married. His first wife was 
Frances, daughter of Henry Johnson by his wife Elizabeth, daughter of 
Richard Norton of Norton. The first child mentioned in the Kippax 
Register is Ellen, so we may assume that Francis was born before his 
father settled there. Francis was possibly born at Waltonhcad, where, 
as we have seen, Sir Francis was living in 1583-4. In the Kippax 
Register is the following " Frauncis Baldon buried 21 May, 1587." 
This I take to be Frances Baildon, the first wife of Sir Francis. The 
spellings Frances and Francis were frequently confounded, in parish 
registers especially. In that case by his first wife Sir Francis Baildon 
had one son and three daughters. 
1. Francis, of whom vide post. 

1. Ellen, baptised at Kippax, 8 March, 1585. 

2. Dorothy, or " Doritye," baptised at Kippax, 10 April, 1586 ; 
buried there 9 August following. 

3. Elizabeth, baptised 21 May, 15S7. An Elizabeth Baildon was 
buried at Kippax 9 February, 1666, but I think the entry 
cannot refer to this Elizabeth, because it seems unlikely that 
if she had been living and unmarried at date of her father's 
will, she should not be mentioned in it. 

Frances, wife of Sir Francis Baildon was, as I have already stated, 
buried at Kippax, 21 May, 1587. She appears to have died in child- 
birth as Elizabeth, her youngest child, was baptised on the same day as 
her mother was buried. 

Sir Francis next married Margaret, daughter of Richard Goodrick 
of Ribstone, by his wife Clare, daughter of Richard Norton of Norton. 
His first tw r o wives thus appear to have been first cousins as this small 
pedigree will more clearly show.

4. Clare was a daughter of Alargaret, but she was not baptised at 
Kippax. She may have been born between William and 
Richard in 15 89 or 90 ; or between Cuthbert and Martin in 
1593 ; or between Thomas and Muriel in 1597. She married 
Laurence Kighley or Knightley ; it is spelt both ways in 
Sir Francis's will ; and by him had one child born prior to 
November 5, 1615. 

5. Muriel, or " Mereall," baptised 30 September, 1598 ; married 
Edward Chadderton of York, by whom she had a son Francis, 
born 1623. In Dugdale's " Visitation," in the pedigree of 
Chadderton, she is described as " Muriell, eldest daughter of 
Sir Francis Baildon of Baildon in com. Ebor. knt." Of course, 
this is a mistake, for there was no Francis Baildon of Baildon 
at that time. As Aluriel is here called eldest daughter, we may 
assume that Ellen and Elizabeth her sisters both died young. 

Margaret, second wife of Sir Francis Baildon, was buried at Kippax, 
22 September, 1598. " 

Sir Francis married for the third time Isabel, daughter of Sir Philip 
Tyrwhit, and widow of Robert Haldenby of Haldenby. She was the 
mother of Elizabeth Haldenby, wife of Francis, eldest son of Sir Francis.

Isabel does not appear to have had any children. She was buried 
at Kippax, 9 March, 1601. 

Sir Francis married for the fourth time, Anne Colebie or Colby, 
widow (between Hil. 1604-5 and Hil. 1605-6). 

The entry in the Kippax register of the marriage of Sir Francis's 
eldest son is " Francis Baldon and Elizabeth Haldenbe, married 15 May, 
1595." He had issue two sons and one daughter : 

1. Francis, of whom vide post. 

1. Alargaret, baptised at Kippax, 27 July, 1608. 

2. Gilbert, baptised at Kippax, 1 December, 161 1. He had a 
daughter, Ann, baptised at Kippax, 25 January, 1634, and was 
buried there 19 Alarch, 1640. 



36 BAILDONAND 

A Jane Bayldon was buried at Kippax, 23 June, 1642; she was 
possibly wife of Gilbert Bail don. There are no further entries relating 
to him at Kippax, but there is a hiatus in the registers from 1642 to 
1653, so that he may have been buried there during that period. 

Francis Baildon, as we learn from his father's inq. p. in., died at 
Kippax, and was buried there 9 March, 1612. Elizabeth, his wife, 
survived him, and married William Powe, yeoman. She survived him 
also, and, on 6 February, 1625, she married John Baildon. 

The before-mentioned Elizabeth Baildon, who was buried at Kippax, 
9 February, 1666, was most probably a daughter of either Francis or 
Gilbert.

NOTE ON THE HALDENBYS. 

There is a long pedigree of the Haldenbys in Glover's Visitation of 1584-5 (ed. 
Foster), with some additions from that of 1612. There is also a pedigree of seven 
generations in Tonge {Surtees Soc, Vol. 41, p. 74), but none in Dugdale. 

John, the first with whom we are concerned, married Katherine, daughter of 

Sir Robert Kildyard of Winestead, and had issue, Robert, and 

wife of John Baildon [ante, Vol. II., p. 203.] 

Robert H., son of John, married Anne, daughter of Sir Guy Dawnay of Cowick, 
and had issue four sons and four daughters. 

Robert Kaldenby, the eldest son of Robert, married Anne, daughter of Thomas 
Boynton of Barmston, by his wife Cicely, daughter of James Strangeways of Smeton, 
and had a large family of seven sons and three daughters. 1 

Anne's sister, Jane, married Thomas Goldsborough, the father of Richard who 
married Elizabeth Johnson. 

Robert Haldenby died Oct. 27, 1558, leaving Francis, his son and heir, then aged 30. 

Francis Haldenby married Elizabeth, daughter of Sir John Wentworth of Elmsall 
(son of Thomas W., who married Jane, daughter of Oliver Mirficld of Mirfield and 
Howley), by his 2nd wife, Jane, daughter of Roger Appleton, of Dartford, Kent. Th^y 
also had seven sons, and one or two daughters. Francis died in 1595 ; some notes 
from his will are printed on p. 6. 

Robert Haldenby, his eldest son, died in his father's lifetime. He married Eleanour, 
daughter of Sir Philip Tyrwhit, of and had issue, 

Francis, aged 2, in 1585, Christopher, Robert, and Elizabeth wife of Francis Baildon 
of Kippax, eldest son of Sir Francis. The Visitation of 1612, shows that Francis H. 
married Elizabeth, daughter of Darley of Buttercrambe, before September 6, 1594, 
when Francis was 10 years old.

THE BAILDONS 39 

Francis Baildon, 3.— (A) was the eldest son of Sir Francis Baildon 
by his first wife Frances Johnson. His baptism is not in the Snaith or 
Kippax registers. 

Francis Baildon was married, some time before June 22, 1595, to 
Elizabeth, daughter of Robert Haldenby of Haldenby, see ante, p. 35. 
The marriage settlement of that date has already been set out ; see ante, 
p. 23. 

Francis Baildon was buried March 9th, 1612. 
As Francis Baildon died before his father, Sir Francis Baildon, there appears to be 
very little recorded about him. The above is all the information that is in the Author's 
MSS. 



Richard Baildon, 3.— (B.) the third son of Sir Francis Baildon 
was baptised May 26th, 1591. 

1613, March 26. — License to pass beyond the seas : — " Richard Bayldon, aged 
19 yeres, borne at Kippax in com. Ebor., intending to pass over for Bredangh to be a 
souldier under Capen Blundcll, hath taken the oath of allegiance.*' 







1616, May 31. — Richard Baildon of London, gentleman, was indicted for two 
highway robberies. On February 16, 1616, at Woolwich, co. Kent, he assaulted John 
Brett on the King's highway, and took 305. from him. Again on February 19, at Wold- 
ham, co. Kent, he assaulted Thomas Parker, and took 49s. from him. 

Baildon was a young man, " and not known to have formerly offended the Lawe," 
and he bad some influential friends. The Lord Chief Justice of the Common Pleas, 
Mr. Justice Houghton, and Sir Christopher Perkins, interested themselves, and 
managed to procure a pardon. He was to find sureties for his good behaviour. 1

40 BAILDON AND 

1623, June 10. — A Bill of Complaint in Chancery was filed by Richard, Cuthbert, 
and Martin Baildon, gentlemen, Laurence Keighley, gentleman, and Clare his wife, 
and Edmund Chatterton, gentleman, and Muriel his wife, being three sons and two 
daughters of Sir Francis Baildon late of Methley, and all his children by his second 
wife Margaret. They recite that Sir Francis at the time of his death had real estate 
worth £150 a year, and personal estate worth £3.000. They recite his will at con- 
siderable length, and especially that part of it relating to Dame Anne's legacies and the 
gift to her of the lease of a moiety of Phippin Park, which with other legacies was de- 
clared to be in satisfaction of all claim she might have on his estate [see ante, p. 29]. 
They also mention the annuity to Anne Mirfield, and the gift of the residuary per- 
sonality to the plaintiffs, conjointly with Henry and Thomas Baildon, since deceased. 
The moiety of the park was held for the residue of a lease of 41 years granted by Queen 
Elizabeth. After making his will. Sir Francis bought from Thomas Fanshawe, esq., 
a lease for 21 years, granted by James I., of" the whole herbage and pawnage " of the 
park. He assigned his interest in both these leases to Sir Thomas Smith, Knight, by a 
deed dated September 11, 1618, to secure a loan of £400, to be repaid on October 12, 
1620. If this were not paid on the day specified, it was agreed that Smith should pay 
" so much more money above the said £400 as the estates of the said premises should 
be worth bona fide to be sold outright." Dame Anne " hath disclaymcd and refused 
the legacies geven her by the will, and for her greater advantage and preferment hath 
betaken her to the thirds of her said husband's lands of inheritance " ; and conse- 
quently the leases became part of the residue given to the plaintiffs. They have re- 
quested Smith to carry out his agreement, but he hath refused to give them any more 
money. [Part of the £400 had been paid off, as appears by Smith's Answer, post.} 
The executors named in Sir Francis Baildon's will, being " gentlemen of worship and 
quallitie," finding his estate much incumbered, " refused to take upon them the 
burthen and trouble thereof," and Dame Anne obtained letters of administration with 
will annexed. She has since tried " to make a further benefitt unto herself by the 
rcdempcion of the said morgaged premisses, and to stripp yor poore Orators of all the 
benefitt that thereby by the lymittacions of the said will ought to redound unto them 
for their maintenance." Accordingly, on March 31 last, " in very secrett manner," 
she commenced a suit in Chancery against Smith, offering to pay all principal moneys 
and interest. The matter was arranged between them to get a decree of the Court, 
and this appears by the fact that Smith's Answer was filed on April 1, the next day 
after the Bill was recorded. In it Smith declared his willingness " to accept his due 
dctt wth reasonable dammages, and to assigne the premisses as the Court shalbe pleased 
to order." Dame Anne having " disclaymed any benefitt by the said will be accepting 
her thirds," the benefit of rcdempcion ought to be considered as residue and acruue 
to the plaintiffs, who are otherwise " very meanely provided for out of their father's 
estate." They offer to pay Smith whatever shall be found due to him and ask for an 
order that he convey his interest to them. They also pray that all proceedings on Dame 
Anne's bill may be stayed, and that she may be ordered to account for all profits of 
Phippin Park received by her since her husband's death, " to th'end that yor Oraturs 
(whome the said Dame Anne hath diverslie wronged by dctayning their dues from 
them and by stirring upp unjust sutes and vexacions :m) may thereby be 

somewhat eased m their paymt." 

Dame Anne's Answer is characteristic of the pleadings of the time. The Bill is 
not only untrue and insufficient in law, but is " both frivolous, impertinent and 
clamorous, and contrived (as she concciveth) by the secrett animation and perswasion 
underhand of some professed adversarye of this deft, and is exhibited for vexacion 
sake and to put this defendant to needles costes, and to hinder the personall estate of 
the said Sr Francys Bayldon, that hath many and greate debts to pay, wch they would 
hide and shadowe." 

The property was forfeited in her husband's lifetime, and therefore the plaintiffs 
have shown no title. Sir Francis died on June 24, 1622, at Monkefreston. Adminis- 
tration was granted to her on October 11 following. The assignment to Sir Thomas 



THEBAILDONS 41 

Smith was dated September 11, 1618, and the condition thereof was to be performed 
on October 12, 1620. Only the executors or administrators are entitled to redeem, 
which she claims to do, " to advance his personall estate for the payment of his greate 
and many debts, for diverse of wch this deft is sued already in many of his Maries 
Courts of Record." 

Sir Thomas Smith complains that there are already two other suits in Chancery 
against him in respect of this same mortgage, one by Dame Anne as administratrix, 
and the other by Francis, Gilbert and Margaret Baildon. There is due on the mortgage 
£223, 6s. Sd. for principal and interest, and, on receipt of this sum, he will reconvey as 
directed by the Court. 

The Bill of Francis, Gilbert and Margaret Baildon against Sir Thomas Smith and 
Dame Anne, and Dame Anne's Bill against Smith, have not been found, but their 
effect is sufficiently apparent from the other documents. The first of these was filed 
before May 1, 1623, when an order was made staying proceedings in Dame Anne's 
suit against Smith until a further answer was filed. 

An order of July 2, 1623, referred the three suits to Mr. Justice Hutton. 

Dame Anne demurred to the Bill of Francis and the others on the ground that they 
had not sued by their next friend. 

This demurrer and the answer to Richard's Bill were pronounced by the Court 
to be insufficient, and she was ordered to put in a better answer to both Bills. 

This she did, the document being sworn to on January 26, 1624. The inventories 
of the goods and chattels of Sir Francis at Monkfryston, Kippax and Snaith, have been 
duly hied by her, " conteyninge in present value not more then about £300, whereof 
there is not yet come to her hands, nore is likely to come, but £120 or thereabouts." 
The sum of £23 or £24 in a bag " was suddenly had and taken away " from her 
messenger in his own lodging by Richard Baildon, and is still detained by him. Other 
goods of Sir Francis " have bine purloyned and imbeziled " from her by the plaintiffs. 
" Diverse bonds and specialtyes wch the said Sr Francys caused to be taken in the name 
of Cuthbert, Martin and Mariall, to shaddow his estate, being in greate danger of debt 
himsclfe for diverse yeres together next before his death, were after his death violently 
taken and carried away from this defts bedchamber by one of the complts whose names 
were therein used, together wth other writings." As to this there is a suit now pending 
before the Council of the North, and the documents have been deposited in Court ; 
but notwithstanding this, Cuthbert, Martin and Meriall have since released most of 
the bonds, by which the personal estate of Sir Francis has lost to the extent of £800 at 
the least. The profits of certain lands, etc., ordered by the will to be accumulated 
for live years, have not been paid to her, and Cuthbert and Martin have sold all " the 
coppihold the demeasne leases " to Sir William Slingsby, knight. Sir William also takes 
the profits of the coal mines, " and is become a greivous and vexatious adversary to 
this deft latelie, because she seeketh to recover the prorhtts of the said coles lawfully of 
him, and is the only instigator also of the complts to prosecute this their wrongfull 
suite against her." She mentions Nicholas Hooker, citizen of London, who is a creditor 
of the estate for £2,000, and other debts amounting to £2,500. When she married 
Sir Francis, she brought him in jointure, lands and leases from her former husband 
above £450 a year, and goods above (2. coo. " out of wch meanes six of her owne 
former children should have bine provided lor by covenent of the said Sr Francys 
Bayldon made before marriage, but were no: by him provided for at all, and her said 
jointure, lands and leases were by him after sould away, and her goods altered in 
property, and disposed of from her and her owne children to their undoing." 

Eventually the whole matter of both suits was referred to Mr. Justice Hutton, by 
an Order dated March 5, 1624. 

The Judge's Report is dated January 28, 1625, and was confirmed by an Order of 
the Court on February 5, 1625, and the judgment thereon was duly enrolled. It appears 
that the Bill of Francis, Gilbert and Margaret was exhibited in Easter Term, 1623, by 
which they claimed to redeem the mortgage of Phippin Park, the defendants being 
Dame Anne Baildon and Sir Thomas Smith. Dame Anne's Bill against Sir Thomas 



42 BAILDON AND 

was dated March 31, and that of Richard and the others [ante, p. 40] in Trinity Term 
of the same year. Sir Richard Hutton's Report is set out in full. He states that Lady 
Baildon brought a good estate to her husband, " havinge smale means left her by him." 
He advises that the lease be sold by Smith with all convenient speed, and the proceeds 
divided as follows : — Sir Thomas Smith £iSo, in satisfaction of his mortgage debt ; 
Richard Baildon, £30 ; Cuthbert, " whoe hath borne the greatest part of the charge 
of the suites," £So ; Martin, £30 ; Clare Kighley, £30 ; Meriall Chatterton, £30 ; 
Francis Baildon the granchild, " who hath disbursed the charge of this suite in the 
behalfe of him and the rest of the grandchildren," £40 ; Gilbert, £30 ; Margaret, £30 ; 
and the residue to Dame Anne. This was confirmed by the Lord Keeper on February 
5, 1625. 

1626, December 22. — A commission was issued to Richard Baildon, esq., and 
three others, to take the oath of Robert Marshall of Selby to his Answer to the Bill of 
Complaint in Chancery of Martin Baildon, Richard's brother. Marshall was sworn 
at Selby on January 22, 1627 ; Richard signed both the Answer and the writ. 

1627, February 9. — Sir Henry Saville of Methley, Baronet, filed a Bill of Com- 
plaint in Chancery against Richard Baildon of Kippax. He states that in September, 
1623, Richard asked him, the plaintiff, for a loan of X 200 ' offering as security the 
tithes of corn and grain within the township or lordship of Kippax. Saville agreed, and 
accordingly, by a deed dated September S, 1623, Richard conveyed the tithes to 
William Freston and William Wolnough, Saville's nominees, to secure the repayment 
of £231, 13s. 4<f. on May 9, 1625, in the south porch of Kippax Church. 1 If Richard 
should make default, the conveyance should become absolute, and the mortgagees were 
to pay him £168, 6s. Sd. ; but if Lady Anne Baildon, here called Richard's mother, 
should recover any part of the tithes for her life, [apparently as dower,, then Richard 
was to have £SS, 6s. 8<2. only. By another deed, dated May 4, 1625, Saville advanced 
a further sum, and Richard charged the tithes with the repayment of /32S on July 6, 
1626, in the south porch of Methley Church. If Richard made default, Saville was 
to pay £72 and be the absolute owner, but if Lady Anne recovered, as before, then 
he was not to pay anything more ; in either case Richard was to hand over all the deeds, 
etc., and to make further assurance if required. Richard was to retain possession until 
default. The money was not paid at the date fixed, but notwithstanding, Richard 
refuses to let Saville into possession. Dame Anne did claim the tithes. Freston and 
Wolnough released their interest to Saville by a deed dated August 30, 1626. Richard 
has got possession of the deeds between himself and Saville, his mortgage to Freston 
and Woolnough, and their assignment to Saville. 

Rchard Baildon's Answer was sworn on April 6, 1627. He admits the first mort- 
gage to Freston and Woolnough, as set out in the Bill, but says that it was cancelled by 
the consent of all parties. He also admits the second mortgage, made to Saville, and 
says that on the execution thereof Saville handed over the first mortgage to be can- 
celled. He admits default in payment, but says that he is ready and willing to redeem 
the tithes if he can have an equitable account of what is really due, without reckoning 
" use upon use," that is, compound interest, whereby the debt is " hoysted up to soe 
greate a some " ; or he is willing that Saville should keep the tithes if he will pay 
valuable consideration for them, they produce a clear £ico yearly, and are worth £Soo. 
In August or September last, Richard, with Saville's knowledge and consent, treated 
with Sir William Slingsby for the sale of the tithes to him ; Slingsby offered to pay 
Saville and give Richard £500. But Saville persuaded Richard to ask a very high 
price, and said he would give as much, so the sale to Slingsby fell through. He denies 
that Dame Anne made any entry or claim, or that he has any of the deeds except the 
cancelled mortgage. 

In his replication, Saville denies the charge of usury, and says that Richard is " a 
man full of ymportunities and clamors " ; that the tithes do not bring in more than 
£40 a year, and that they are yearly growing worse " by reason of the abundance of 

1 Allowing £l 13s. i'. for costs, t! e interest is exactly 20 per cent. 



THEBAILDONS 43 

coale-delves and digging and burning of lymestone " in Kippax ; Dame Anne claims 
dower in the tithes ; they are charged with a fee-farm rent of £8 to the King, which is 
£20 or £3° in arrear ; a tithe-barn worth £40 has been recovered by the heir-at-law, 
Francis III, from Richard. 

On June 23, 1627, Richard was ordered to pay £328 into Court by the Morrow 
of All Souls. This was not done, and accordingly on November 10, 1627, an injunction 
was granted " for setling the possession of the said tithes with the plaintiff." 

1627, Trinity Term. — Richard Baildon, gen., by Francis Hemsworth, his attorney, 
v. Thomas Taylor junior, in the custody of the Marshal of the Marshalsea, in a plea 
of debt of 405., viz., that whereas Richard on 5 Sept. 2 Charles I, 1626, at Kippax, 
demised to Thomas all tithes of peas growing on 7 acres of land of the said Thomas in 
the fields of Kippax for that year, paying 16/4 (part of the 40/-) within 8 days thereafter. 
He has not paid the 16 4. Also on October 1, 2 Charles, at Kippax, Taylor borrowed 
from Richard 23/8 (balance of the said 40 -) to be paid on demand. 

(Entry not completed in roll.) 1 




To complete the record of Richard Bayldon, it is necessary to follow him to the 
United States of America, for he emigrated to Wethersfield, Connecticut, in the year 
1635. An account of his life in Wethersfield is contained in a book by Jessie Perry 
Van Zile Belden (Mrs. James Mead Belden) of Syracuse, New York, printed for 
private circulation (J. B. Lippincott Company, Philadelphia) in 189S. 

Mrs. Belden came to England to get first hand information. A great deal of this 
was obtained from my brother Paley, and on the question of the identity of the Richard 
Bayldon who emigrated, with Richard Bayldon of Kippax, he wrote a letter which I 
transcribe from Mrs. Belden's book Ancestors and Descendants of Royal Denison Bddcn. 
He wrote as follows : — 

" There is only one family of Bayldon : all persons bearing that name by inherit- 
ance must have sprung from the Yorkshire manor of that name. Richard Bayldon, son 
of Sir Francis Bayldon of Kippax, baptised May 26, 1591, was the only Richard, so 
far as I know, who would have had money to spend in the purchase of land, as Richard 
of Wethersfield did. Richard Bayldon, of Wethersfield, was a man of some substance ; 
whatever his motives for emigrating may have been, he was clearly in a very different 
position from so many of the early settlers, who had nothing beyond their clothes and 
a few cooking utensils. His whole career shows him also to have been a man of mark, 
a ' man of affairs,' one to whom his fellow townsmen looked up ; he was also pre- 
sumably a man of education, and, judging from the actions of his descendants, he was 
also a man oi' fighting instincts. All these are Kippax characteristics. The Coat of 
Arms in the possession of the descendants of Richard is identical with the one used 
by the Bayldons of Bayldon and Kippax.'"' 

This seems to be conclusive. 

The first emigrant land records of Wethersfield contain the following : — 

" The 2nd month and 7th daic 1641. 
The lands of Ric Bayldon (those given him by the towne and those he bought of Jonas 
Wod) lying in Wethersfield on Connecticut river one piece whereon his house standeth,

44 BAILDONAND 

In 1641, the spelling of Bayldon was changed to " Belden," altered again, in 1643, 
to " Belding." After several alterations between these two variations, it was last 
changed to " Belden " in 1825. 

1643. — " Richard Belding is bownd in £xx., George Chappcll in £10 that the 
sd George keepe good behaivior and appeare the next Court;." 1 

1646, June 5th. — " Richard Belding stands bownd in £20. Robt. Rugge in £40,

THEBAILDONS 45 

Richard Bayldon was married in England and had two sons — Samuel and John. 

A copy of Ancestors and Descendants of Royal Dcnison Belden is included in the 
Baildon Collection at Bradford. It may be consulted there for the later history of the 
American branch of the family, the details of which are given up to the date of com- 
pilation — 1898. 



Cuthbert Baildon, 3. — (C) fourth son of Sir Francis Baildon, was 
baptised Feb. 26, 1592. 

1612, March 25. — Cuthbert Bayldon, son of Francis Bayldon of Huntingfield, 
Suffolk, knight, was apprenticed to John Burges, haberdasher, for a term of eight years. 
This was registered with the Haberdashers' Company on December 4 following. 1 

1615, July 6. — By an Indenture of this date Sir Edward Tirwhitt and his trustees, 
in consideration of £1,100 paid to him by Sir Francis Baildon, demised the manors of 
Eagle, North Scarle, Southeray and Irforth, the site and demesnes of the late dissolved 
monastery of Irforth, and certain lands in Caborne and Stainton, all in Lincolnshire, 
to Thomas Colby and Cuthbert Baildon, for 99 years. 

1620, May 5. — By an Indenture of this date Sir Edward Tirwhitt confirmed the 
lease to Thomas Colby and Cuthbert Baildon already mentioned : [ante, p. 29]. 

1622, August 11. — At a Court held at Snaith, Cuthbert Bayledon was found to be 
one of the customary heirs of Sir Francis, his father, to the copyhold property in 
Snaith : see ante, p. 32. 2 

1623, June 10. — See under Richard Baildon, ante, p. 40. 

1626, January. — Cuthbert Baildon filed his Bill in Chancery against Sir Edward 
Tyrwhitt, knight and baronet, Richard Smith and Robert Smith. He states that on 
July 6, 1615, Sir Edward Tyrwhitt, Sir Gervase Clifton, Sir John Mollineux and Sir 
Francis Baildon, demised unto Thomas Colby, Citizen and Grocer of London, and 
Cuthbert himself, the manor of Irforth or Urforth, and Sotherey or Sorrey Place, the 
site and demesnes of Irforth Priory, and a messuage and land at Caborne, all in Lin- 
colnshire, after the life estate of Sir Philip Tyrwhitt and Dame Martha his wife, for a 
term of ninety-nine years, at a yearly rent of 12 d. This lease was made by the direction 
of Sir Francis, for the special advancement of Cuthbert, and it was made by Sir Edward 
Tyrwhitt as security for the repayment of £1,100, due by him to Sir Francis, and 
further secured by a bond. Sir Edward made default in payment, whereby the lease 
became effective, subject to the said life estate. On November 5, 1615, Sir Francis 
made his will, and thereby gave the said lease to his supervisors. He had faithfully 
promised to recompense Cuthbert for the loss, and therefore he (Cuthbert) and Colby 
assigned the lease to Sir Thomas Dawney, Sir Henry Goodrick and John Colby, three 
of the supervisors named in the will. Sir Francis died in June, 1622, " seized or pos- 
sessed of a verie greate estate, reall and personall." John and Thomas Colby are also 
dead. The Bill goes on to allege that Thomas Prince of Kippax and Laurence Hutchin- 
son of Methley, yeoman, were possessed of a term of years not yet ended in the manors 
of Eagle and North Scarle, Lincolnshire, by a lease from Tyrwhitt, Clifton, Mollineux, 
and Sir Francis Baildon, in trust for Sir Francis, and as further security for Tyr.vhitt's 
debt to him. On May 18, 1617, Prince and Hutchinson, by the direction of Sir Francis, 
assigned t! ii lea;e to Cuthbert, Sir Thomas Dawney and Sir Henry Goodrick, in iru^t 
for Cuthbert. In Trinity Term, 1625, Cuthbert filed a Bill in Chancery against Sir 
Edward Tyrwhitt, Dame Anne Baildon, and others asking for relief in the matter. 
The defendants put in their answers in Trinity Term, 1626. Before making the lca^e 10 
Cuthbert and Colby, Tyrwhitt had fraudulently made a secret conveyance to Richard 
and Robert Smith, " upon secret trust or for noe valuable or good consideracion," 

1 Haberdashers' Company, Register of Bindings.

BAILDON AND 



" with a purpose to defeate the said Sir Fr. and to frustrate the lease." He asks 
for discovery as to these secret conveyances. Tyrwhitt and the two Smiths denied 
by their answers that any secret conveyances had been made. 

In the same month of January, 1626, Cuthbcrt filed another Bill in Chancery 
against Christopher Colby, which is in form very similar to the last. He first sets out 
the lease of July 6, 1615, [ante, p. 29] to Thomas Colby and Cuthbcrt himself; 
and the passage from Sir Francis's will ; the assignment of the lease to Sir Henry 
Goodrick and John Colby, dated December 8, 1615 ; the death of Sir Francis, John 
Colby and Thomas Colby ; the lease to Prince and Hutchinson ; their assignment to 
Cuthbert, Sir Thomas Dawney and Sir Henry Goodrick, dated May 18, 1617 ; Cuth- 
bert's Bill in Chancery in Trinity Term, 1625, against Sir Edward Tyrwhitt, Dame 
Anne Baildon, Christopher Colby, and others ; and Sir Edward's secret conveyances 
to the two Smiths. Cuthbert has since ascertained that certain evidences, books of 
accounts, etc., relating to these matters are in the possession of Christopher Colby, 
and he now asks for discovery against him. In his answer, Christopher Colby admits 
that since his answer to the former Bill the documents referred to have come into his 
possession, but he has since handed them over to one John Freshwater of London, 
gentleman, in whose hands they now are so far as he knows. 

1626, August 28. — Depositions were taken at Kippax in the suit between Cuthbert 
Baildon, plaintiff, and Sir Edward Tyrwhitt, Dame Anne Baildon, and Christopher 
Colby, defendants. 

The first witness was John Baildon of Kippax, yeoman, aged 44. He was Cuth- 
bert's cousin, son of his uncle Hilary. [See pedigree, post.]. He stated that Sir 
Francis Baildon owed him £20 which was a legacy given him by his father's will, of 
which Sir Francis was the executor. He had often demanded this sum of Sir Francis, 
and, since his death, of Dame Anne ; she refused to pay, on the ground that she had 
not sufficient goods of Sir Francis to do so. He has been informed that the inventory 
of Sir Francis's goods amounted to £1,000 at the least. 

Ralph Pratt of Kippax, yeoman, deposes to various small debts owing by Sir 
Francis ; one of these was a sum of £3 to Sir Richard Hawks worth, " for three quarters 
of seed oates and for sumering and some part of wintering of a young horse." A legacy 
given by Sir Francis to " one Mris Murfeild, wife unto Gei rge Murfeild, deceased." 
" He hath often heard Sr Francis Baildon say wth great greif that he had ruinated 
his estate by money disbursed and payed or otherwise engaged himself for Sr Edward 

Tirwhitt, amounting to £2,400 and further that he knoweth that Sr 

Francis was forced for along time to keepe Iris house and live privatly for [fear of] 
being arrested and imprisoned for the debts of Sr Edward, and that he was arrested 
at Rippon for debt of Sr Edward." 

Lawrence Hutchinson of Sherborn, yeoman, said that Christopher Colby, in 
December or January last, showed him a deed executed by Edmund Chatterton and 
Muriel his wife, assigning and releasing to Colby and Dame Anne all the Chattertons' 
right or claim to Sir Edward Tyrwhitt's lands by virtue of any legacy given by Sir 
Francis Baildon ; and Colby requested Hutchinson to engross a similar deed for 
Lawrence Keighley and Clare his wife to execute. He told Hutchinson that he had 
paid the Chattertons £150. Hutchinson saw the Keighleys execute the deed, when 
Colby paid them £21 and gave them a bond to pay £1 10, and a bond for £50 to redeem 
a house at Keswick in Cumberland, mortgaged by Keighley ; and he further promised 
to give Sir Henry Goodrick £100 for the use of Lawrence Keighly, their son. 

Sir William Slingsby of the Strand, Middlesex, states that on the 21st of August 
instant, at the request of the plaintiff, he went to the office of the Secretary to the 
Council of the North at York, and examined a schedule of bonds, which had been 
brought into that Court by order in a case between Dame Anne and Cuthbcrt. He 
found in the schedule bonds to the amount of £347 taken by Sir Francis in Muriel's 
name. There was also a bond for £60 to secure payment of £26, 19s., not mentioned 
in the Schedule, which had been paid. He produced a copy of the inventory exhibited 



THEBAILDONS 47 

by Dame Anne as administratrix of Sir Francis, wliich he had compared with the 
original in the Commissary Court at York. The value of the goods and chattels was 
£560, besides certain leases and bonds, and certain goods taken by the children and 
others claimed by Dame Anne. Dame Anne has received £iSo for rents due to the 
estate, not contained in the inventory ; she has also received bills and bonds amounting 
to £185 ; and Sir Thomas Dawnay bought her interest in Phippin Park, for which he 
paid her £220 in cash and granted her an annuity of £60, valued at £300, making 
altogether £520. He has heard several creditors of Sir Francis complain that the)' 
could not get their debts from Dame Anne, " shee haveing wasted the personall estate 
of the said Sr Francis." A year before Sir Francis died, he complained to Slingsby, 
with much sorrow and grief, that he had paid for Sir Edward Tyrwhitt more than £1,800 
for which he had no satisfaction, and " had almost ruinated his estate and his repu- 
tacion." 

Meriall Chatterton, wife of Edmund Chatterion of Milford, gentleman, aged 24, 
said that she and her husband had received £260 from the bonds taken by Sir Francis 
in her name, and that Christopher Colby paid her a further sum of £56 6s. 8J. about 
Christmas last, when she and her husband executed a release of their interest in Sir 
Edward Tyrwhitt's lands. 

Cuthbert Bramham of Kippax said that he had often heard Sir Francis complain 
" that he was out of purse and engaged for Sr Edward Tirwhitt £2,700, and that hem 
being his servant and wayting uppon him in London, Sr Francis durst not walke 
abroadc, but kept his house for feare to be arrested for the said engagmts ; and that 
Sr Francis was diverse times arrested for the detts of Sr Edward." He mentions debts 
amounting to £540, which he knows Sir Francis paid. 

On June 5, 1626, an order was made to attach Sir Edward Tyrwhitt and Dame 
Anne Baildon for not answering Cuthbert's Bill ; and on June 20, a subpama was given 
against Dame Anue, ordering her to bring into Court various documents admitted to 
be in her possession. 

1626. — In the early part of this year Cuthbert filed a third Bill in Chancery 
relating to the same matters, the defendants being Sir Thomas Dawnay, Sir Henry 
Goodrick, Sir Edward Tyrwhitt, Dame Anne Baildon, and Christopher Colby. The 
document is in bad condition, but, as far as can be made out, appears to set forth the 
facts in much the same language as the previous ones. The answers of all the de- 
fendants are preserved. Sir Thomas Dawnay states that he never acted in the 
ot Sir Francis Baildon's will, and disclaims all interest. Sir Henry Goodri - 
refused to act " in respect of divers distractions, incumbrances and trobles semenng 
to accompanie the said trust of supervisorshipp." 

Sir Edward Tyrwhitt admits the lease to Thomas Colby and Cuthbert Baildon, 
as collateral security for some of his debts for which Sir Francis was bound. He has 
not paid the £1,100, but he has paid a large part of the debts. He declines to account 
to Cuthbert, as he is neither heir, executor nor administrator. He made an agreement 
with Dame Anne, as administratrix, in May, 1625, to discharge his estate from all 
incumbrances due to Sir Francis, he having already paid £360 besides interest, with 
divers pieces of plate, etc., that he should pay a further £900, whereof he has paid 
£250. 

Dame Anne and Christopher Colby deny that the lease was made for Cuthbert's 
benefit. Dame Anne docs not admit that Sir Francis died possessed of a large estate 
" for shee saith that shee hath not hitherto found any such matter." She says that " at 
the time of her intermarriage wth her said late husband, she had an estate of five 
hundred pounds per annum in lands and tenemts, and in mony, goods and chattels to 
the value of two thousand pounds, wch estate her said late husband in his lifetime did 
quite aliene from her, and hath now left her a poorc distressed widdow wthout any 
competencye of livelyhood or maintenance." She also alleges that Cuthbert has sold 
all his interest to Sir William Slingsby. 



4§ BAILDONAND 

1627, May 5. — It was ordered that Sir Thomas Dawnay should release his interest 
in the manor of Irforth, and the other property directed by Sir Francis Baildon's will 
to be sold, to Sir Henry Goodrick, that Goodrick should sell the same, and that he and 
Dawnay should then be discharged from the trust ; Sir Edward Tyrwhitt was to have 
the refusal of the property at its market value ; the purchase money was to be distributed 
as directed by the will. 

1627, October 26. — Colby was ordered to produce on oath all the documents in 
his possession or that he could " come by." This he did, for on January 26 following, 
the Master certified that they did not belong to Colby, and it was ordered that any 
property belonging to Cuthbert should be given to him. On Alay 26, the Court was 
informed that Sir Henry Goodrick refused to execute the conveyance of the manors 
of Irforth and Sotherey without an express Order of the Court. 

1627, November 5. — A much mutilated document, being a plea and demurrer of 
Cuthbert Baildon, one of the defendants, Dame Anne being the plaintiff. He refers to 
the Chancery Bill of Trinity Term, 1625, in which Cuthbert was the plaintiff [see 
ante, p. 45]. Sets out the Order of May 3, 1627 — relates to the Lincolnshire 
manors. 

1627, November j. — Dame Anne complained that Cuthbert's demurrer to her 
Bill was insufficient, and it was referred to one of the Masters. On November 12, the 
Solicitor General applied on her behalf to have it referred to a judge instead of to a 
Master. The application was adjourned for a week, for the plaintiff to show cause. 
It does not appear that this was done. 

1628, November 8.— A Commission of Rebellion was issued to attach the de- 
fendants, John Smith and Richard Boyfield. On November 28, the Court was informed 
that Smith and Boyfield, who held possession of part of the lands directed to be sold, 
were keeping close and could not be apprehended under the Commission. The Ser- 
jeant at Arms was ordered to arrest them. 

The decree had ordered Dame Anne to assign Sir Edward Tirwhitt's recognizance 
for £4,000. When, however, it came to a question of executing the assignment, we 
learn that " she doth neverthcles nowe obscure herself, and beinge an aged Ladye, 
retyres wholye to her chamber and will not be spoken wthall ; " and when Cuthbert 
" by casualty gott unto her," she refused to seal the deed. 

1634, June 27. — Cuthbert filed a Bill of Complaint in Chancery against Sir Philip 
Tirwhitt. He recites his former Bill, in 1625, against Sir Edward Tirwhitt, Sir Thomas 
Dawnay, Sir Henry Goodrick, Dame Anne Baildon, and Christopher Colby, relating 
to the manors of Irforth, Eagle and North Scarle, etc. [ante, p. 45", and the 
judgment thereon, dated May 5, 1627. Sir Edward Tirwhitt died without performing 
the Order of the Court, leaving Sir Philip his son and heir. Sir Philip has taken posses- 
sion of Eagle and North Scarle, and receives the rents and profits. Cuthbert prays that 
the former suit may be revived, and Sir Philip compelled to answer. 

1634, June 27. — Cuthbert exhibited a petition to the Lord Keeper, reciting the 
judgment of May 5, 1627 [see supra], and that Sir Edward Tirwhitt had 
died about a year afterwards, without discharging the debts therein mentioned, which 
rest upon the plaintiff to discharge. He wished to have the title to the lease vested in 
himself alone, in order that he might raise money on it for the discharge of the debts. 
He prayed for a subpama against Sir Thomas Dawney and Sir Henry Goodrick, the 
trustees of the lease, to show cause why they should not assign their interest to him. 
This was granted ; the heir of Sir Edward Tirwhitt was to be served with notice. 1 

On October 23 following, Sir Philip Tirwhitt, Sir Edward's heir, showed cause. 
He alleged that lease was granted to secure Sir Francis Baildon from future engage- 
ments that he should afterwards enter into for Sir Edward Tirwhitt, " and that in 
trueth he was noe way ingaged for him afterwardes." He stated that Cuthbert had 
preferred a separate Bill against him for the same matters, which he had answered, and 
denied on oath that Cuthbert was liable for any engagements of Sir Edward Tirwhitt.

THE BAILDONS 49 

It was ordered that the lease should not be assigned, as prayed, " but that all matters 
shall rest as now they are, untill the hearing of the cause." 1 

1635, April 15. — Mr. Mollett, the Queen's Solicitor, appeared for Cuthbert, and 
once more the whole story of the two leases, the debts, Sir Francis Baildon's will, and 
the subsequent litigation, is set out at length, and the former judgment of May 5, 1627. 
He asked, as before, that Dawney and Goodrick should be ordered to assign the lease 
to the plaintiff. It was ordered that, unless Sir Philip should within a fortnight show 
good cause to the contrary, an injunction should be granted against Sir Philip " to 
establish the pit. and his assignes in the quiett and peaceable possession of the said 
mannors of Eagle and Northskarle " ; but the assignment of the lease by the two 
trustees was respited until the hearing of Sir Philip's cross Bill [see infra.]. 2 

On May 11 following, Mr. Dollison appeared for Sir Philip, and raised certain 
technical objections that Cuthbert was neither heir nor executor of his father, which 
seem to have been over-ruled. He went on to refer to Sir Philip's cross Bill, to which 
Cuthbert had demurred, and he asked that he should put in an answer. It was ordered 
that Cuthbert should put in an answer, " but in case the said Baildon can make it 
appeare by matter of Record that he or the said Sir Francis Baildon paid those debts 

which by the Decree were to be discharged by Sir Edward Tirwhit 

then it is reason the possession of the said mannors of Eagle and Scarle should be 
setled with the pit., according to the former Order ;" and it was referred to Sir Edward 
Salter, one of the Masters, to consider and certify. 3 

1634, November. — Sir Philip Tirwhitt of Stainfield, co. Lincoln, Knight and 
Baronet, filed a Bill of Complaint in Chancery against Cuthbert Baildon, John Dodd, 
and others, and once more we have the story of the financial dealings of Sir Francis 
Baildon and Sir Edward Tirwhitt. It is not necessary to reprint the whole story here ; 
the following are the most interesting scraps of detail. The plaintiff was the son and 
heir of Sir Edward, and grandson of Sir Philip Tirwhitt and his wife Martha, who was 
a daughter of Sir Anthony Thorald, Knight. Sir Edward " then lived about the Citty 
of London," where " one Sir Francis Bayldon did insinuate himselfe into his acquain- 
tance, and in short time did become familier and of great acquaintance " with him. 
" Under a coullor and shewe of love and friendshipp " he lent Sir Edward much 
money, which Sir Edward " was occasioned vainely to consume and spend uppon the 
sayde Sir Francis Bayldon and in such company," " wch much occasioned the Ruyne 
of his estate and fortunes." In 10 James I, [1612-3^, Sir Edward conveyed part of his 
Lincolnshire property 10 Sir John Mulleneux, Sir Gcrvas Clifton and Sir Francis 
Baildon, as trustees for himself. About two years afterwards an account was made up 
of the money owing to Sir Francis, which with interest came to about £1,100, to secure 
which Sir Edward agreed to give him a lease for 99 years of part of the property. This 
was done on July 6, 1615, when a lease was granted to Thomas Colby and Cuthbert 
Baildon of the manors of Irforth and Sothery, the site of Irforth Priory, and a house 
and land at Caborne, to become void on payment of what was owing to Sir Francis. 
The manors of Eagle and North Scarle were leased on similar terms to Thomas Prince 
and Laurence Hutchinson. Sir Edward also gave a bond for £3,000 as additional 
security, inasmuch as the leases could not take effect until the deaths of Sir Philip and 
Dame Martha Tirwhitt, Sir Edward's father and mother. Subsequently Sir Edward 
borrowed a further sum of £400 on a bond by himself and Sir George Chute, Knight. 
The Bill goes on to recite the conveyance by Sir Francis to feoffees, his death, will, 
and the grant of administration to Dame Anne Baildon. Dame Anne, as administratrix, 
demanded payment from Sir Edward, who " did enter into treaty and come to an 
account and reckonninge betweene them." He claimed to have paid £400 to Sir 
Francis during Iris lifetime, and " likewise had departed with diverse parcells of plate 
and other things of great value." It was agreed that these payments should " goe for 
interest," and that the capital debt should be taken at £1,500, to be repaid by yearly

instalments of £200. To secure this he assigned certain property to Dame Anne and 
Christopher Colby. He had paid her £350, when Cuthbert Baildon wrote to him 
" charginge him uppon his peril not to pay any more unto the said Dame Anne 
Bayldon and Christopher Colby or either of them." Sir Philip and Dame Martha 
Tirwhitt died shortly afterwards. Thereupon Dame Anne, Cuthbert, Christopher 
Colby, Sir Thomas Dawney, Sir Henry Goodrick, Sir William Slingsby, Prince and 
Hutchinson, having possession of all the leases, bonds, and other documents, " did 
combync by what meanes to defeate the sayde Sir Edward Tirwhitt of the sayde 
mannors and landes, being of the value of £6,000 att the leaste." They therefore 
refused to accept the money due and deliver up the various documents to be cancelled. 
Cuthbert " havinge improvidently and unthriftily spent and wasted a greate parte of 
his estate," set up a claim that the leases had been procured by Sir Francis for his 
(Cuthbert's) benefit and for the increase of the portions of two of his sisters ; and he 
offered to sell the leases to Sir William Slingsby of London, Knight. Sir William bought 
them " for a very small somme of money," and began many suits in this Court against 
Sir Edward and others. He also gave out " that he would cause Sir Edward to spend 
£4,000 before he should recover his sayd land againe." 

Cuthbert's Answer is dated February 11, 1634-5 ; he puts a very different com- 
plexion on the story. He recites the former litigation and the Decree in the Court of 
Chancery of May 5, 1627, [see ante, p. 48^ The leases were sold in pursuance of 
that decree, and with the consent of Sir Edward Tirwhitt, the plaintiff's father. Sir 
William Slingsby gave £1,600, which was £528 less than what was due to Sir Francis 
Baildon's estate. He gives a long list of bonds which Sir Francis had been compelled 
to pay on Sir Edward's account, on one of which he had been arrested. 

Cuthbert filed a further Answer on January 20, 1635-6, in which he goes through 
the Bill, item by item, and admits or denies each one. He admits that his father became 
bound as surety for Sir Edward for large sums had by the latter, " but how the said 
summes were disposed of this defendant knoweth not. But sure he is that his said 
father was not any occasion of any vaine consuming or spending thereof; neither could 
his said father ever till his deathe be quiett, but still was solicited by the Complts 

father to be further ingaged for him His said father never received 

either any plate or any thing els in satisfaction or recompense of this Complts father, 
and this Complt doth wrong this defts father herein. But sure this deft is that his [the 
plaintiff's] father, upon his urgent soliciting, gott many great summes of reddy monies 
out of this defts father's owne purse." " And this defendant further saithe that this 
defendant's father, a very short space before his deathe, speakeing of such debts as hee 
stood bound for and ingagements as hee had entered into for the debt of the said 
Complainant's father, did weepeing declare to this Defendant and others that he was 
then out of pursse £3,300 of his owne estate." " And further this Defendant saithe that 
his said father was so impoverished by reason of the said debts and ingagements that 
he, haveing bound this Defendt Apprentice to a Mercer, to the wch Trade this Defendt 
served eight yeares, But by reason of these greate disbursemts for this Complainant's 
father, this Defendt his father could not at the end of the Defendts apprenticeship give 
him any stock to sett upp his saide Trade withall. And so this Defendt was forced 
utterh to loose his trade, wch was a greate greife to tiro )efendts father, ind .1 meanes 
of shortening his dayes, and the utter undocing of this Defendt." 

In the meantime Sir Phillip Tirwhitt was proceeding with his cross Bill. 

On October 29, 1634, a writ of attachment was issued against Cuthbert " Blaydon " 
for non-appearance. 1 This was apparently successful, but certain other applications 
were necessary to induce him to answer. These I have not found, but a process of 
contempt had been issued. 

On April 28, 1635, Mr. Phillipps appeared for Cuthbert, here called Baildon, and 
his co-defendant John Dodd, and informed the Court that the delay in filing an answer 
was due to the fact that some of the bonds, etc., were not in their possession, which 

Orders, B 1 534, fo. 54. 



THE BAILDONS 51 

involved " divers searches in other mens bookcs." The process of contempt was 
thereupon discharged. 1 

1635, May 9. — By an Order it was declared that if Cuthbert could show by matter 
of record that Sir Francis Baildon had paid certain debts which ought, by Decree of the 
Court to have been paid by Sir Edward Tirvvhitt, deceased, then the possession of the 
said manors should be settled with Cuthbert. The Master's Certificate, dated February 
23, 1636, states that Cuthbert had produced an answer to a cross Bill against him, filed 
by Sir Philip Tirwhitt, in which Cuthbert sets out debts paid by Sir Francis on behalf 
of Sir Edward Tirwhitt to the amount of £995. This answer is a record of this Court, 
but Cuthbert " hath not produced anie other matter of Record to manifest the same." 

On March 24, 1636, and again on April 30, John Dod made oath that several 
persons had broken the injunction granted. Writs of attachment were directed to the 
Sheriff of Lincolnshire. 2 

1636, May 2. — Cuthbert petitioned the Lord Keeper in the former suits of 
Francis Baildon and others v. Dame Anne, Dame Anne v. Sir Thomas Smith, Richard 
Baildon and others v. Dame Anne and others, [see ante, p. 41] ; he sets out the 
reference to Mr. Justice Hutton, dated March, 1624, and his report thereon, directing 
the lease of Phippin Park to be sold and the proceeds divided as therein mentioned ; 
" and amongst other distribucions of the money, appointed So ft", to be paid to the said 
Cuthbert, to whome the same being not knowne untill about a yeare since, he being 
beyond seas in his Mats service ; " the lease was sold, and the purchase money was 
paid to Sir William Slingsby, " who was thereby to satisfie the said distribucions, but 
denied to pay the same to the said Cuthbert, and retaineth the same in his owne haiides 
ever since." The Lord Keeper ordered that Sir William should see the petition, and 
return an answer to his Lordship within six days. This was done, and on May 26 the 
matter was again referred to Mr. Justice Hutton to consider, " and if he shall thinke 
fit, to send for both parties to attend him, and either to reconcile the differences, or to 
certifie unto his Lopp his opinion touching the same. 3 

1642. — Cuthbert Baildon was Lieutenant in Captain Oliver Cromwell's Company 
in the Earl of Bedford's Regiment. 

1642, February 23. — " These arc to authorize you to enter into the houses of all

164S, March 27. — Cuthbert Baildon made his will, describing himself of the 
parish of S. Clement Danes, esquire. He gives everything to his " loveinge friende 
Thomas Hodgson of London, gent.," and appoints him sole executor. He is to be buried 
at his executor's discretion. The witnesses were George Haslocke and William Stockly. 
Indorsed on the original will, but not copies into the Register, is : " I bequeath my 
buff coat to Capt. Younge." 

The will was proved by Hodgson on April 3, 164S.

1622, August 11. — At a Court held at Snaith, Martin Bayledon was found to be 
one of the customary heirs of Sir Francis, his father, to the copyhold property in Snaith; 
see ante, p. 32. 2 

1623, June 10. — See under Richard Baildon, ante, p. 40. 

1624, February. — A Bill of Complaint was filed in Chancery by John Rippon and 
others of South Milford against Martin Baildon. It relates to some property in 
Sherburn, which had been mortgaged by Thomas Barton of Water Fryston, about 
1619, to Sir Francis Baildon, late of South Milford, for £120. The property was 
copyhold, and was duly surrendered to Sir Francis and Martin his son. It turned 
out, however, that it was entailed, and so for further security Sir Francis took a lease 
from Barton. This was contrary to the custom of the manor, and Sir William Hungate, 
the lord of the manor, seized the lands as forfeited. An arrangement was afterwards 
come to, by which the property was sold to the plaintiffs for £,160, of which £115, 105. 
was to be paid to Sir Francis as mortgagee, and £45 to Barton as mortgagor, and 
Hungate admitted the plaintiffs as tenants. The money to be paid to Sir Francis was 
secured by a bond entered into by the plaintiffs to Muriel Baildon, daughter of Sir 
Francis, dated July 16, 1622. Sir Francis died before the money was payable ; and on 
the appointed day and place, the plaintiffs went to pay the £115, 10s., but there was 
no one to receive it. In the meantime, Muriel Baildon had married Edward Chaderton, 
and they had some disputes with the Lady Anne Baildon, widow of Sir Franis. The 
plaintiffs paid £25 to Chaderton, " but forbore to pay the balance until they knew to 
whom to pay the same." Thereupon Chaderton and his wife sued them for the 
balance before the Council of the North, and recovered judgment against them on 
September 27, 1622, lor £90, los., winch has since been paid. Since then, Martin 
Baildon, as surviving joint tenant of the mortgage surrender, has made some claim, 
and threatens to commence proceedings at common law for recovery of the premises. 
They ask for an injunction against him. 

1626, October 21. — Martin Baildon of Kippax, gent., filed a Bill of Complaint in 
Chancery against Robert Marshall of Selby, yeoman. About four years ago Martin 
bought a gelding from Marshall for £11, and gave him a bond in £22 to secure payment. 
Martin had to go to London " upon necessary and urgent occasions," and was not able 
to return until after the bond was due, and was not then " provided of moneyes " to

pay Marshall. He therefore on June 7, 1623, surrendered to him a toft, 2 acres and 
half a rood of arable land and half an acre of meadow in Shcrburn, and copyhold of the 
manor ; it was agreed that Marshall should sell this properly for not less than £30, 
(which was the sum that Martin had paid for it not long before), pay himself the £il, 
and hand the balance to Martin. Martin is married, " and upon that occasion liveing 
within the County of Cornewall." Marshall taking advantage of this, sold the land to 
Robert Hughes, the Bailiff of the manor for 20 marks, £13, 6s. &d. Hughes has since 
sold the toft alone for £15 or £16. Marshall refuses to account for the balance, 
although often requested " in moste loveing and freindly manner " to do so. 

1626, December 22. — A Commission was issued to Richard Baildon, esq., and 
three others, to take the defendant's answer, which was sworn at Selby on January 22, 
1627. Both the answer and the writ were signed " Richard Bayldon " [ante p. 42.] 

Marshall denies the agreement set out in the Bill, and states that the land was 
surrendered in satisfaction of the debt damages and costs. Martin had not paid the 
fine on his admittance, nor had Edmund Simpson, from whom he bought it, so that 
with Marshall's admission there were three fines to pay, which came to £10 ; Hughes 
undertook to pay these. 

1627. June 4. — Martin Baildon of the parish of St. Clement's Danes, co. Middlesex, 
gent., filed a Bill of Complaint in Chancery against 

About July 17, 1626, he obtained " a proces of replevye " from John Poole and 
Christopher Clithcroe, late Sheriffs of Middlesex, against Thomas Reddinge, " for 
takeing and unjustlye detayneinge of one nagge ; " and he and Thomas Clarke of High 
Holborn, grocer, entered into a bond of £40, for the due prosecution of the suit and the 
return of the " nagge." if ordered. As Martin was about " to take a jornye into 
Yorkshere, where he was borne, to see his frindes," he retained Giles Thomas, clerk 
and officer to the Sheriffs, and an attorney practising in the County Court, to proceed 
against Reddinge, and gave him 5s., and directions where and how he might obtain 
other moneys in Martin's absence. Giles Thomas not only neglected the case, so that 
Martin was nonsuited, but he " complotted " with Reddinge and one Hodges, the 
Under-Sheriff, to bring about a forfeiture of the bond. Thereupon Reddinge brought 
an action of trover and conversion in the Marshalsea Court against John Drew the 
bailiff "warranted to deliver the said nagg " to Martin, and charged him with "unjustly 
detayneinge and convertinge the said nagge to his owne use." Drew, instead of plead- 
ing his warrant and Martin's claim to the nag, " willfully suffered hymself to be 
condemned therein." Whereupon Poole and Clitheroe sued Martin on his bond 
in the King's Bench, and Martin was summoned to appear at the next County Court 
" by attachlnge a mare of his of £30 price." Hodges did not give Martin notice of 
this, " ymagyninge to have confiscated the mare and to have detayned her for his owne 
use." Martin, however, had private intelligence of " the said Cort and plott," and 
duly appeared when, as no declaration was made against him, he freed his mare. The 
mare is still detained by the Under-Sheriff. 

About five years ago, Elizabeth, Martin's " new wief, beinge a gentlewoman well 
discended, and then the widdow and relict of one Henry Reade, gent., deceased, 
retayned as an apprentice by Indentures one Edward Jones, an artist in musicke, as 
well to instruct and teach her in the arte of musicke, as otherwayes to attend and be 
serviceable unto her aboute her lawfull ymploynues and affayres, for the termc of 
seaven yeres, for whose service duringe that tyme she gave hym her bond in £200 for 
the paymt of £100 wthin a certen tyme wch ys now past." Jones entered into covenants 
not to demand the £100 until he had duly performed his service at the end of the seven 
years. Jones much neglected his service, and " did ymbeasell and convey away " 
goods and plate belonging to Elizabeth, " to a greate value." About two and a half 
years afterwards, when the day was past on which the £100 was to be paid according 
to the bond, though a long time before it was due under the agreement. Jones offered 
to assign the bond to divers persons, for £5, for 405., " and would accept of any chapman 1

for the same att any rate whatsoever, but none would deale wth him." He then 
assigned the bond to John Jones, his father, and one Hunkins, an attorney or solicitor, 
who now threaten to sue Martin and his wife for the £200. The assignees " have 
conveyed hym the said Edward Jones beyond the seas."

1628, February 12. — A writ was directed to the Sheriff of Devon. It appears 
that Elizeus Hale lately recovered a debt of £50, with 24s. \d. costs, against Henry 
Rede, as executor of the will of his father, Lawrence Rede of Stonehouse, Devon. 
Henry Rede having died intestate, administration was taken out to his personal estate 
by Elizabeth, his widow, who afterwards married Martin Baildon. Martin and his 
wife were to be summoned to show cause why the said debt and costs should not be 
levied against the property of Henry Rede in their possession. They did not appear, 
and the Sherilf returned that they had no goods in his Bailiwick. Judgment was given 
against them by default. 

1634. April iS. — Martin Baildon obtained letters of administration to the personal 
estate of Sir Francis, his father, not administered by Dame Anne. 

1634, October 10. — In a suit in Chancery by Sir John Calverley, knt., and others 
against Martin Baildon, the plaintiffs were ordered to pay the defendant 46*. Sd. 
" for want of a bill." 2 

1635, January 26. — Martin Baildon, as administrator of his father, filed a Bill of 
Complaint in Chancery against John Colby (the younger) and Thomas Proctor. 
About 33 years ago, Anne Colby, widow of Francis Colby of Layston, Suffolk, Esquire, 
was seised for life, under the will of the said Francis, of lands worth £400 a year, in 
Layston, Thcberton and Kelleshal alias Knothall, all in Suffolk ; the reversion in fee 
then being in John Colby (the elder), son and heir of Francis and Anne. She was also 
possessed of personal estate worth £3,500, consisting of leases, plate, sheep, cattle, 
household stuff, and other goods and chattels, either by legacy from Francis her 
husband or as his executrix. About the fourth or fifth year of the late King James 
[1606-160SJ Anne married Sir Francis Baildon, who thus became seised of her life 
estate and possessed of the said personal estate, in her right. Shortly after the marriage 
it was proposed that John Colby (the elder) should pay Sir Francis Baildon £200 a 
year during the life of Dame Anne, and should release Iris interest in her personal 
property to the value of £2000, and that he should then enjoy her third part of the

BAILDON AND 



said lands. This was agreed to by Sir Francis " out of the love and affection hee bare 
to the said Dame Ann, his wife, and the said John Colby (the elder) her son, for the 
preferement of the said John Colby, and at the request of the said Dame Ann." In 
pursuance of this agreement, John Colby (the elder) gave a statute staple for £2,000 to 
Sir Francis, on December 6, 1609 ; and in the same year Sir Francis and Dame Anne 
released to John their interest in all or the most part of the said lands, and he granted 
them by deed two annuities of £140 and £60, charged upon his lands in Suffolk. 

Some time afterwards, Colby and two other persons contracted with Ludovick, 
the then Duke of Lennox, for the purchase of the Dominion or Manor of Wensleydale, 
in Yorkshire, in the name of Sir Francis Baildon, for the price of £10,000, being really 
worth a far greater sum. Colby could not raise his share of the purchase money 
without selling some of his Suffolk property, and he contracted to sell part of it, on 
which the said annuities were charged, to Paul Banning, esq., and Sir Paul Banning, 
knight, for £3,500. It was advised by Counsel that Sir Francis and Dame Anne 
should join with John Colby (the elder) and Mary his wife, in levying a fine, in order 
to release the annuities, which might be charged on Colby's share of the Wesnleydale 
property, when purchased. The conveyance to the Bannings was dated May 13, 161 4 ; 
and_the fine was levied in Hilary Term, 1615. In the same term, the Duke of Lennox 
conveyed the manor of Wensleydale to Sir Francis Baildon and two other persons, 
upon trust, to convey one-third to each of the purchasers, which was done shortly 
afterwards. Sir Francis and Dame Anne then demanded that their annuities should 
be charged upon Colby's share of Wensleydale. Colby, however, died about two 
years afterwards, before anything was done, leaving two sons, Francis, then aged nine, 
and John (the younger) then aged two. He devised his share of Wensleydale to his 
wife, Mary, upon trust to pay the annuities to Sir Francis and Dame Anne. After 
his death, Mary entered into possession, and admitted the liability to pay the said 
annuities, but she begged Sir Francis to wait until she got in some moneys, alleging 
that she had many law suits, and that Sir Thomas Metcalfe of Nappa owed her £1,600. 
Sir Francis did not commence proceedings, again " out of love and affection," and 
nothing was done up to the time of his death in Jure, 1622. Dame Anne, who was 
administratrix to her husband's estate, took no proceedings against her daughter-in 
law ; and so the annuities have never been paid. 

Colby's answer, made by Alexander More, his guardian and next friend, is dated 
February, 1635. He denies the Bill at great length. 

Martin's reply was merely formal. 

1635, February 12. — It was ordered that Martin should bring into Court the 
defeasance admitted in his answer to be in his possession. 1 This Order not being 
obeyed, a writ of attachment was directed to the Sheriff of Middlesex to enforce it.* 
This also failed in its object, and accordingly a commission of rebellion was issued on 
June 11, 1635. 3 This brought up the defendants with a humble petition, on June 27, 
1635 ; Sir Robert Rich [one of the Masters J, was ordered to lix time and place for the 
commission [to take depositions]. 4 

1635, July S. — Martin filed a further petition and an affidavit, in which he stated 
that the statute had been handed by him to one Bennett Hobbs, esq., as security for a 
loan, and that Hobbs had offered a copy to Colby's guardian and attorney. Martin 
was ordered to attend Sir Robert Rich with the defeasance, which was to be disposed 
of as he should think fit. 5 

1635, Trinity Term.— Martin Baildon v. William Fawkenbridge. The defendant 
not having appeared, and the service of the subpoena on him being proved, a writ of 
attachment against him was directed to the Sheriff of Yorkshire."

THE BAILDONS 57 

1635, June 27. — The Master directed that the examination of witnesses should be 
held at Kippax on August 5. On the appointed day, Martin, with his Commissioners 
and witnesses, duly attended at Kippax from 8 o'clock in the morning until S o'clock at 
night. The plaintiff Colby attended with the Commission, but would not produce it 
or permit the examination to proceed. Apparently Colby proceeded to examine his 
own witnesses somewhere in Lincolnshire, but it was ordered, on December 19, that 
these depositions should be suppressed, and the defendant should have his costs 
of the abortive commission. Martin Bai'.don had leave to add William Calverley as 
a defendant in his cross Bill against Colby. 

1636, February 8th. — The last Order was varied. Colby stated that he had no 
proper notice of the appointment at Kippax on August 5 last until ten days before. 
However, he rode to Kippax, and wishing to speak to Martin and his Commissioners, 
sent his servant to the room they were in. The servant " was bidden to gett him gone 
as he came, and could gett no other answere." " And the Host of the Housse tould 
the pit's servant that the defendt sayd that if any come unto him from the pi., he would 
thrust his Rapycre through him." It was ordered that Colby's depositions should 
be suppressed, but without costs. 

1636, April 28. — The depositions of witnesses in Aiartin's suit against John Colby 
were taken at Kippax. 

Cuthbert Bramham of Kippax, labourer ; hath heard Sir Francis Baildon, his 
late master, say that he had a statute from John Colby, deceased, for £2,000, to secure 
the annuity of X 200 t0 himself and Dame Anne ; and that Colby paid the annuity as 
long as he lived. Sir Francis often sent him to Airs. Mary Colby ; [this apparently 
would be after John Colby's death]. She generally put him off, " by reason of her 
debtes, great charge of children, suites, and other troubles," and she " did hope Sr 
Francis Bayldon would be pleased to forbeare her untill shee gott in some money." 

Jane Askham of Drousfield in Derbyshire, widow, aged 60, sister of Dame Anne 
Baildon. She deposes as to the estates of Francis Colby, Dame Anne's first husband, 
and John Colby his son. Mary Colby, John's widow, never paid the £200 annuity. 
Martin Baildon was not present at the death of Sir Francis or of" the La. Dame Anne." 
Edward Hawkins, " being agent and dealer for the Lady Baildon," delivered the statute 
and other writings relating to the annuity, to Martin as administrator of Sir Francis. 
Mary Colby died five or six years ago, and left her three daughters £500, £400 and 
£400 respectively. 

Mary Hawkins of Drousfield, spinster, aged 20, [see Dame Anne's will], had often 
heard her grandmother [Dame AnneJ mention the arrangement as to the annuity ; 
and " hath often heard her demaund the sd somme of £200 of her, the said Mary 
Colby, wch shee [Mary] never denied to pay, butt because of her necessities and 
wantes." 

1636, April 27. — The depositions of witnesses in John Colby's suit against Martin 
Baildon and others, were taken at Kippax. 

Lawrence Hutchinson of North Aluskham, co. Notts, clerk, aged 62. He gives 
a very interesting account of how Sir Francis, " lying sick on his bed " at Monk 
Fryston, four or five days before his death, wished to make some alterations in his will. 
Hutchinson had been a " servant and retayner to the said Sr Francis by the space of 
nyne or ten yeares before his death, and served as clarke to him, being Justice of Peace." 

Thomas Procter of Newall, co. York, esq., aged 56. He had heard Mary Colby 
declare that the statute for £2,000 was satisfied by John Colby, her husband. Alary 
Colby at one time had a house at Nappa, where Dame Anne " then sojourned," and 
William Calverley, Alary Colby's brother. Alary Colby then stated that her late 
husband, John Colby, had satisfied the statute for £2,000. 

This was confirmed by William Falconbridge of Aliddleton, co. York, gentleman, 
who was " servant in household wth the sd Alris Colby, and sollicited her causes, yet 
he never knew that the said Lady Anne Baildon, after the death of her said husband, 
demaunded a rent charge of yearely annuity of £200 out of the landes in Suffolke."

1636, May 21.— The publication of the depositions was ordered. 1 

JU-.M 1 , 637, June : 9-— Martin Baildon, described as of Paddington in the County of 
Middlesex, gentleman, filed a Bill in Chancery against Richard Tisdale of " Graysin- 
lane, tailor. Martin together with Tisdale and one Edward Hawkins, had executed 

Y« iu m pCnal SUm of £ 30 t0 secure the Payment of £15 to Nathaniel Sampson 
ot Holborn, gentleman. He did so at the request of Hawkins and Tisdale, and the 
money due to Sampson was their debt. He goes into other monetary transactions 
with 1 isdale and others, which are not very interesting. Martin had been outlawed 
in respect of one of the bonds mentioned on October 20, 1636. He had also been 
arrested at the suit of Tisdale, and imprisoned in Newgate. 

1642 February 23.— Lord Gray of Wark issued a warrant to Colonel Coke, 
Ueut.-Col. Bayldon and others, to arrest all Malignants and Papists in Cambridge- 
shire, to search their houses, and to seize their horses, arms and ammunition, [v. p. 51]

1646, July 23. — King Charles, then at Newcastle-on-Tyne, wrote to Col. Henry 
Washington, Governor of Worcester, thanking him for the " singular courage and 
integrity " with which he had defended the city, regretting that he could not send any 
relief, and authorizing the surrender of the garrison on the best terms that could be 
obtained. 

After the death of his brother Cuthbert in March or April, 164S, Martin took out 
Letters of Administration to his father's estate, dated April 17, 1649. 

1652, May 17. — London. St. Bartholomew the Less. — Marriages.— Martin 
Bayldon and Florence Banister. 

1654, about March or April. — Martin Baildon, " now a prisoner in the Fleete," 
complained in Chancery against Pcrcival Stanny and Thomas Darcy. The plaintiff is 
" the onely surviveing sonne and administrator of all the goods, chatells and creditts 
of Sr Francis Baildon, late of Kippax," deceased. In April, 1649, he had " in his 
owne hands divers deeds, leases, bills, bonds, recognizences, and other specialites and 
writings of a very good value," and amongst them a lease of the manors of Eagle and 
Northscarle, co. Lincoln, granted by Sir Edward Tirwhit, deceased, to certain trustees, 
to indemnify Sir Francis Baildon against certain liabilities contracted on behalf of 
Sir Edward. Sir Francis paid for Sir Edward £ [so in the original 

MS.], at least, which has never been repaid. On April 23, 1649, Martin agreed to 
release to Stanny all his interest in the lease as to the manor of Northscarle (worth £14 
a year), and in half the manor of Eagle, (worth £200 a year), for £20. Darcy was to 
draw the agreement. The agreement or articles, as drawn by Darcy, contained 
clauses reciting that, by a deed poll of even date, Martin released all his interest in the 
lease to Stanny, and that Martin and one Whelpedale had given a bond in £40 to secure 
payment of £20 to Stanny ; in consideration whereof Stanny covenanted that upon his 
recovery of the manor of Eagle, either at common law or in equity, he, Stanny, would 
assure the half of it to Martin for the unexpired term of the lease, and that upon 
recovery of the manor of Northscarle, by the suit then depending in Chancery by Stanny 
and others against one Thomas Hudson and others, Stanny would discharge Martin 
and Whelpedale of the said bond, provided that Fludson could be ejected within ten 
months from the date of the articles. This was not in the terms of the original agree- 
ment, but Martin was persuaded to execute both the articles and the bond, as he was 
at that time " much straightened for moneys to beare his charges into the Countrey 
upon some extraordinary occasions he then had there." Stanny has since recovered 
the two manors, but refuses to settle the moiety of Eagle, as agreed. Martin left with 
Stanny the letters of administration to his father's estate,. and certain bills, bonds, etc., 
amounting to £8,000 at the least, for safe custody until his return to town. Stanny now 
refuses to give up these, and also the bond for £40, upon which he is suing. 

The Answer of Stanny and Darcy was sworn on April 12, 1654. 

Stanny admits the agreement and the loan of £20, and says he is willing to settle 
all his interest in the manor of Eagle on the plaintiil'on receipt of the £20 and £5 which 
he also lent the plaintiff. Says that the plaintiff well knoweth that he hath noe right 
either in lawe or equiety unto the said Mannors of Eagle and North Scarle, for although 
the Complaint and Cuthbert Bayldon his brother, deceased, did for some tyme pick 
upp a lyvelyhood about London upon their pretended right of and unto the said 
Mannors, one of them pretending one while to be Administrator to their said father, 
and the other another while, and soe brought some credulous people upon hopes of a 
great profitt by the recovery of them, yet they or cither of them had no pretence of 
right thereunto, for Sr Phillip Tirwhit, as sonne and heire of Sr Edward, preferred 
his bill to be releved for the said Mannors against one Thomas Hudson, to whome the 



THEBAILDONS 61 

said Cuthbert had either sold or contracted to sell his estate in the said Mannors, 
thereby setting forth that all dampnifications wch Sir Francis Eayldon had suffered 
by reason of his ingagemts for the said Sir Edward Tirwhit were satisfied. The Court 
awarded that all dampnificacions were long since satisfied, and thereupon the Mannor 
of North Scarie was in Trinity Terme last decreed unto Sr Phillip Tirwhit. And 
this deft denyeth that hee found the Complt much straightened for monyes for the 
purpose in the bill mentioned, or any otherwise streightened for monyes then he used 
formerly to be, wch, as this deft conceyveth, was very streight indeed and beleeveth 
that the said £20 had loosened and elevated the Complt more then hee was many 
yeares before. Stanny admits having the Letters of Administration, which he is 
willing :o give up when he is paid the £20, but denies having any ether writings 
belonging to the Complainant, but wheresoever such writings are this deft hopeth they 
shall bee cancelled by the judgment of this Court, to the end that the Complt may not 
defraud any others wth false pretences thereupon. 

The plaintiff submitted that this answer was very scandalous, and it was referred 
to one of the Alasters of the Court. 

1654, Michaelmas Term. London. — James Luffman puts in his place Henry 
Cutts against Martin Bayidan of London, esq., otherwise called Martyn Bayldan of 
the parish of St. Buttolphe without Aldersgate, London, esq., in a plea of debt. 

Martyn Bayldan of London, esq., otherwise called [as before] puts in his place 
Church against James Luffman in a plea of debt. 1 

1657, December 1. — Bennett Hobbes of Ardington, co. Berks, gent., and Rous 
Clapton of London, clerk, filed a Bill of Complaint again;: Martin Baildon, " now or 
late of Paddington in the County of Midd., Gent." They allege that in July, 1634, 
Martin Baildon and Edward Hawkins, late of Dranfield, co. Derby, lately deceased, 
" haveing very great occasions for money," borrowed £200 of the plaintiffs, for which 
they gave a Statute Staple for £300, acknowledged before Sir Robert Heath, Lord 
Chief Justice of the Common Pleas. The plaintiffs have been unable to get repayment 
of the loan, and now " the sd Martyn doth not onely utterly refuse to pay it, but giveth 
out publickely in speeches that he hath payd it, & not onely soe, but giveth out that yor 
Orators joyntly have released the sd debt, or yor Orator Bennet Hobbes hath singly 
under his hand & seal released the sd debt, whereby yor Orator Bennett is not onely 
disgraced under the pretence of doeing soe foul an act without the consent of the sd 
Rous Clapton, the joynt Connsee, but like to bee much prejucided & damnifyed by 
suites att Common law " ; as for the alleged release, if any such be produced, " itt is 
false, scandalous, and forged." Some of the plaintiffs' witnesses are dead and some 
beyond the seas ; they therefore pray for discovery and for the examination of the 
defendant. 

The author's notes contain no further information about Martin Baildon.

1629, October 6. — Francis sold [? all] his Kippax property to Sir William 
Slingsby of the Strand, Middlesex, Knight, for £20 and an annuity of £30 charged 
on all Slingsby's lands in Yorkshire. The conveyance, which was made to Sir William 
and his eldest son, Henry, describes the property in detail. It comprised the capital 
messuage late of Sir Francis Baildon, with the stables, gardens and orchards ; the Hall 
Croft, Oke-flatt Close, Shuttokes Close, Rycroft Close, Colepitt Close, Pond flatt, 
Booneroode-hill flatt, otherwise called the Lymekilnes ; eighteen acres of arable land 
in the common fields, and certain " pasture gates " in the Ox-pasture, otherwise called 
the Town Ciose. The estate was subject to the life interest of Elizabeth, mother of 
Francis, then the wife of John Baildon of Kippax, yeoman, in a moiety. Francis 
covenanted against any incumbrances made by himself or Gilbert Baildon, his brother. 

1629, October 29. — Francis, in his proper person, surrendered three acres of 
copyhold land in Kippax to Sir William Slingsby and Lancelot Wells, the Lords of 
the Manor. 

1630, April 2 1 . — At the Kippax Court, Francis Du fheld appeared, and acknowledged 
that Francis Baildon had satisfied the mortgage of ,"32, [see ante, p. 62], by the sale 
to Dufheld of some freehold lands in Kippax ; and he gave a bond in £40 to Sir 
William Slingsby that his son, Thomas Duffield, to whom the mortgaged land had been 
surrendered, should (when he attained 21) re-surrender and release it to Baildon. 

1632, July 4. — A further Order was made in the Court of Wards. It first recites 
at length the inquisition taken after the death of Sir Francis on March 24, 21 James I., 
1623, and that Francis, the heir, " having accomplished hiss full age and neglected his 
Ousterlemaine," two charges were imposed on two messuages and certain lands at 
Byram, which had become in arrear, which arrears had then been paid. " And for 
that also yt appeareth ... by the affidavitt of Phillipp Wawyn, recorded in this 
Court July 9th last, that the said Frauncis Bayldon died the XVth day of February, 
1629, and was buried the next day following, in regard whereof the Ousterlemaine was 
lost by the Acte of God." It was therefore ordered that " the said Ousterlemaine 
shalbe and is freed and dischardged, and that all the said chardges and all other the 
chardges, seizures, attachmtes and proces, for or by reason of the said Inquisicion, 
shalbe and hereby are discharged." and the tenants, farmers and occupiers thereof 
freed. " Provided alwaies that if any better matter shall hereafter appeare to entitle 
his Matie, then this Decree shalbe voide." 1 

Francis Baildon died before the end of November, 1629, without issue, and 
apparently unmarried, leaving his brother Gilbert his heir. 

" A very weakc young man." 1

64 BAILDON AND 

Gilbert Baildon, 4.— (B) Grandson of Sir Francis Baildon, of 
Kippax. 

1629, October 6. — When Francis Baildon of Kippax sold his estate there to Sir 
William Slingsby on this date, [ante, p. 63], he covenanted against incumbrances 
made by himself or by Gilbert Baildon, his brother. 

1630, May 3. — An order was made by the Court of Wards with regard to the 
estate of Sii Francis Baildon of Kippax. It begins by reciting the Inquisition taken, 
after his death, on March 24, 1623, [see ante, p. 32J, and sets out his various pro- 
perties in Kippax, Snaith, Co wick, Leathley, Ayringden Park in the parish of Hepton- 
stall Byrom, Stainford [parish of Hatfield'], Cadeby, Sprotborough and Willthrop ; 
his death, and the minority of the heir, and the wardship. The wardship " being 
neglected to be compounded for," one George Whiting presented a petition that he 
might be admitted to compound for the same. This was granted, and Whiting paid 
a fine for the wardship. " And afterwards, the said Warde being dead, Gilbertc 
Bayldon, William Lishman and Margarctt his wife, sister of the said Gilbert Bayldon, 
brother to the said Warde, Sr Willm Slyngesbie, knight, in the behalfe of himselfe, 
[and of] Thomas Bingley, Thomas Riccard and Mrchaell Pearson, purchasers of som of 
the landes of the said Ward, [presented a petition] sheweing thereby that whereas by 
reason the said Francys Baildon, being found by the said Office [inquisition] to be his 
Mates Ward, haveing neglected the composicion of his marriage, notwthstanding he had 
accomplished the age of three and twentie yeres and more . . . was granted 
considcracion of a Fyne paid to his Mates use by the said George Whiting ; And for 
that the said Frauncys Baylden died the seaventh day of February last, before his 
Composicion was made, it was thought fin by the said Courte that extentes should be 
awarded to seaze the goodes and landes of the said Warde into his Mates handes untill 
composicion should be made wth the said George Whiting, whereof the said 
Peticioners had knoweledge ; They therefore humbly prayed that the said proces of 
extentc might be staied, and that the said George Whitinge might be, by the Courte's 
intercession, moved to accept of the composicion of Thirtie poundes, the same being 
of small value, And the rather for that the Warde's brother and sister and next of 
kindred did refuse to entermedle wth the administracion of his personall estate, his 
landes in possession being sold to the rest of the Peticioners and to some others. It 
might be ordered and decreed that out of his goodes and debtes, being prized at 
41/. 15s. 4>i. by Inventorie, out of wch, deductinge his due debtes and funerall charges, 
there will advance but 9/. eight shillinges of good debte and value ; And that the said 
xxx li. at the suite of the Peticioners might be thus raised, vizt, from the purchasers, 
according to the value of the landes by them purchased, whereunto most of them doe 
willingly agree and submitt, vizt, from Sr William Slingsbie 8 li., Francis Duffeild 
iiij li., Thomas Bingley iiij li., Michaell Pearson iiij /;'., and Thomas Riccard xxxs. ; 
And that the overplus of his goodes and personall estate . . . might be allowed 
to make upp the said some of thirtie poundes to the said George Whitinge ; And 
finally that . . . the purchasors of his landes and possessors of his goods pro rata 
might be for ever discharged, for soe muchas is conteyned in the said Inventorie, 
against the Kinge's Made, the said prosecutor [Whiting], and all others. Dat. the 
xxjth of Aprill, 1630." 

Thereupon a Rule was given in the Council Chamber on May 1, subscribed under 
the said Petition, that the said George Whiting, the prosecutor, should be paid £30, 
namely, £10 this Easter Term, £10 in Trinity Term, and £10 in Michaelmas Term, 
for his interest. This Rule was confirmed on May 3, 6 Charles I., by Sir Robert 
Naunton, Master of the said Court, and the Council of the same, and it was ordered 
accordingly, as desired by the said Petition. 1

1634, April 14. — Indenture of this date between Gilbert Bayldon of the parish 
of St. Martyn in the Feilds, Midd., gent., cosen & heire of Sir Francis Bayldon, late 
of Dunwich, co. Suff. km., deceased, that is to say, the brother & heire of Francis 
Bayldon deceased the late grandchild of the said Sir Francis Bayldon, the sonne & 
Heire of Francis Bayldon deceased, the late sonne & heire apparant whilest he lived 
of the said Sir Francis Bayldon deceased, of the one part, & Sir William Slyngisbie of 
the parish of St. Clement Danes, co. Alidd., knt. & John Pithcr of London, gent, of 
the other part. Gilbert in concon. of £20, granted bargained & sold to Slyngisbye 
& Pithcr, their heircs & assigns, a windemill with appurts. at Staynford, co. York, late 
in tenure or occ. of Thos. Alapull, of the yearly rent or value of 13 4, parcel of the 
honor of Hatfeild & of the Dukedom of York, &c, with the " suite, soke, toll, mulcture 
& customes " thof., which King James by patent of April iS, 9 James, granted to Felix 
Wilson & Robert .Morgan, gents., in fee farm at a rent of 13/4 to the King. 1 

1636, November 28. — Gilbert Baildon filed a Bill in Chancery against Thomas 
Bingley of Kippax, in which he describes himself as brother and heir of Francis, son 
and heir of Francis, son and heir of Sir Francis. He begins by reciting the settlement 
of June 22, 1595 [ante, p. 23], which included a messuage and lands in Kippax, called 
Tailor's Farm. By virtue of this entail the settled property has descended to Gilbert 
on the death of his brother Francis without male issue. About November 6, 1628, 
Bingley took possession of Tailor's Farm, " minding and intending to disinhcrite the 
said Francis Baildon, the youngest in his life tyme and your sayd Orator after his death," 
Francis being then " a very weake young man, and your Orator then being in his 
mynoritie." " By some undue and sinister meanes " Bingley had got possession of 
the said " deed of feofement and intaile, whereby to disable the said Francis Baildon, 
the youngest from the recovery of the premises at the Common Law ; " " and doth 
give out in speeches that he hath some deed or deeds or some estate thereof made unto 
him by the said Francis Baildon the youngest, whereas, if he have any such, they were 
very unduely gotten from him and for very little or noe consideracion at all to him 
truely and bona fide payd therefor, and are not good in law." 

In his Answer, Bingley states that after the death of Sir Francis and Margaret 
his wife, Elizabeth Baildon, widow of Francis II, entered into one half of the settled 
property (including Tailor's Farm) as tenant for life, and Francis III, her son, entered 
into the other half as tenant in tail, he being also entitled in reversion to the first half. 
By a deed dated November 6, 162S, Francis III conveyed Tailor's Farm to Bingley 
and Thomas his son, for £81, and covenanted that he was lawfully and solely seised 
to him and his heirs for ever in fee simple or fee tail general. Elizabeth, the tenant 
for life, and John Baildon, her then husband, attorned tenants to the B 
Francis III was willing to have levied a Fine of Tailor's Farm in order to bar the entail, 
but Bingley was informed that it was included in a Fine already levied in 1627. The 
sum of £81 was a reasonable price. Elizabeth demised her life interest, or part of it, 
to Lancelot Wells in 1624. 

1640, October 21. — An Order was made in the Court of Wards on an information 
by Gilbert Baildon against William Copley, Lancelot Wells, Francis Duffield and 
Henry Slingsby, to attach the defendant-- for nut putting in any answer. A further 
Order to the like effect was made on October 2S. On November 27, Gilbert made 
oath that he was not worth £5, after payment of his debts, beyond " such estate as he 
hopes to recover by suit in this Honorable Court for the lands in question." On 
February 18, 1641, Gilbert, here called Esquire, proved service of a further Order on 
one Wilson, defendants' attorney, as to payment of 20s. for the costs of the attachment, 
which Wilson refused to pay. 

There are no further notes.

CHAPTER VIII. 
WAIFS AND STRAYS IN YORKSHIRE. 

The material printed in this chapter consists of items from many 
sources which have either reached the Author too late to be included in 
their proper place or relate to individuals whose identification is not so 
definite as to satisfy the Author. The MSS. was in jackets labelled 
as above, and the entries were arranged in chronological order. 

The later chapters, dealing with the Baildons of Lincolnshire, Wales 
and London, will be of similar nature, a reference to the earlier volumes 
being made whenever it is possible to do so. 

Section I. 1290— 1400. 

William de Baildon ; no indication of parentage. 

1290-1, Nones of January. — William de Baildon, who hud the first tonsure, was 
degraded for having stolen fourteen silver spoons at York. The sentence was pro- 
nounced by Archbishop John Romanus in the west porch of the minster at Ripon. The 
document describes William as having the first tonsure, and he was declared to be 
degraded from the order of psalmist. 1 

The sentence being pronounced at Ripon suggests that William was in the 
monastery of St. Wilfred there. The word psalmisiaius is defined by Ducange as 
meaning " dignhas el onio psalniistae ; pmua tonsura, quae apud nos vacatur Psali/ri- 
status, nun est ordo, sed tantum dispositio ad ordinem " ; and he defines psalniistae as 
cantores. 

Hugh de Baildon ; no indication of parentage. 

1300, Trinity Term. — The executors of the will of Laurence de Bootham claimed 
20 qrs. of oats from Alice widow of Stephen le Waleys, 405. from John Sampson, and 
54s. from Elizabeth de Colville. John's sureties were John Gilbert of Appleton, Hugh 
de Bayldon, William Bateman of the same, and William Elybrun. (?)'- 

In 1305 or earlier, Henry attc Croiz, at the Cross, complained of William, Prior 
of Healaugh Park, Brother Robert de Spofford, Alan the " Prioresman," John de 
Touthorp, William of the Barkhous, Hugh de Baildon, Adam de Angrum, and 
Thomas Mareys, for trespass. The case came on in Easter Term of that year, when it 
was adjourned to Michaelmas for default of the jury. No details are given. 3 



Hugh de Baliden of Sourby. 

1313. — At a Court held for the Manor of Wakefield in Whitweek, Hugh de 
Baliden of the Graveship of Sourby was fined 2d. for an escape.' 1 

1315. — At the Tourn at Halifax on the morrow of the Octave of Easter, Hugh de 
Baliden was fined izd. as a forestaller of meat. •'

THE BAILDONS 69 

William de Baildon. 

1325. — Alice, widow of Walter de Hodeleston v. Adam de Hoperton and William 
de Bayldon, custodians of the land and heir of Godfrey de Melsa, in a plea of dower. 1 

1327. — William de Bayldon was crushed to death at the watermill at Multhorp. 
Two wheels, the axle, the fusil, the bearings, and the moving mill-stone were forfeited 
as deodands ; they were valued altogether at is. 6d.- From this it is clear that he fell 
among the machinery while the mill was working. 

Alulthorp, now Mowthorpe, is a hamlet in the parish of Terrington, in the North 
Riding, wapentake of Bulmer, about 8 miles west by south from New Malton. 

1329, Michaelmas Term. — William de Baildon, Laurence de Coupmar.thorp, and 
seventeen others, of Sherburn, Church Fenton, Ulskelf, Bretton, and Bigging, were 
charged by Thomas de Usseflete, clerk, with cutting down his trees at Church Fenton, 
near Tadcaster, to the value of £60. In Michaelmas Term, 1330, several of the 
defendants (but not Baildon) appeared, and pleaded that the place where the trees were 
growing was the common wood of all the free tenants of the vill of Church Fenton for 
necessaries in connection with their free tenements ; part of the soil of the wood 
belonged to the Queen and part to the Archbishop, and the plaintiff had no more 
interest in it than any other free tenant ; they admitted cutting down the trees, but 
said it was for necessaries, and was therefore lawful, and only what had been done by 
their predecessors from time immemorial. The plaintiff in reply, said that he was lord 
of the vill of Church Fenton, and that the soil of the wood in question belonged to him. 
The case was heard at York on the Monday after the feast of St. Gregory the Pope, 
[March 12], 1330-31. The jury found that the plainiff was the lord of the vill, End that 
the soil of the wood did belong to him, but that the defendants who were then before 
the Court were free tenants, and had only taken such reasonable estovers as they were; 
entitled to. Judgment was therefore given for them, and the case against the other 
defendants, including William de Baildon, was dropped 3 . 

The defendant in this case is probably William of Huddleston, which is not far 
from Church Fenton [post, p. 71]. 



John de Baliden of Sowerby. 

1331, January 11. — At the Court held at Wakefield, the Grave of Sourby was 
ordered to distrain John de Baliden to answer Thomas de Totehill in a plea of debt. 
They afterwards agreed, and John was fined 2<:. 4 



John de Baildon, of Sherburn. 

1331, June 2. — An Inquisition was taken at the Archbishop of York's Court at 
Sherburn, as to a collage at Sherburn which was claimed by William de Hodelston and 
Alice his wife in her right, as daughter and heir of Thomas le Graunt. One of the 
jurors was John de Bayldon. 5 It is quite possible that this is John, 7. A. [ante, Vol. ii, 
p. 98].

Thomas de Baildon. 

1331, September 8. — Thomas de Baledon, " cantarist," was presented to the 
Chapelry of Norton in the parish of Campsall, near Pontefract, by Sir Hugh de Hastings. 
He resigned in 1339 for the Chapelry of Langbrigg, in the Diocese of Winchester. 



Roger de Baildon. 

1336, Michaelmas Term. — John de Ledeston of York, taverner, and Roger de 
Baildon, were defendants in an action of trespass. The membrane is much decayed, 
the name of the plaintiff has gone entirely, and it is not quite clear that the Christian 
name of the Baildon defendant was Roger. 1 



Adam de Baildon, son of Maude. 

1338, June. — At the Summer Assizes at York, Adam, son of Maude de Baildon 
was indicted for stealing a cloak and a trokett of blue cloth, worth 6s. %d., from John 
Na-knave of Burley, in July, 1336. He pleaded Not Guilty, and was acquitted. 2 



William de Baildon of Fenton. 

1342, Michaelmas Term. — John de Cawode and Peter de Newton, both of York, 
complained that Gilbert, son of Elias de Fenton and Alice, his wife, William de Bailton 
of Fenton, Robert de Mikelfeld of South Fenton and others, had forcibly seized and 
carried off the plaintiffs' goods and chattels at Kirk Fenton and South Fenton, worth 
10 marks [£6 13s. ^d.] 3 



John de Baildon of Allerton. 

1343, Michaelmas Term. — John de Baildon of Allerton was bailiff and receiver 
for Robert de Baildon at Allerton near Leeds, and was sued by Robert for an account. 4 

It is quite possible that this is John, 7. A. [ante, vol. ii, p. 98]. 



John de Baildon of Tollerton. 

1344, Michaelmas Term. — John Somer complained of Thomas the Clerk of Alne 
(4 miles from Easingwold, 10 miles from York), John de Baildon of Tollerton, Peter de 
Alne, John his son, and others, for trespass, the details of which are not given. Baildon 
had been attacked by Richard Russel and Adam Moigne. He did not appear and was 
to be distrained. 5

In 1523, William Baylton, lister or dyer, was tenant of a garden in North Street, 
York, belonging to Joan Tong. 

In 1524, William Bailton of the Parish of All Saints, North Street, York, paid 12J. 
subsidy for 405. worth of goods. 1 

1532, Trinity Term. — William Lawrance of the city of York, tylemaker, was 
summoned to pay to Henry Deyson, late Sheriff of the city of York, 200 marks due on 
a bond dated Oct. 1, 16 Henry VIII., to the said Henry and to John Roger, now 
deceased ; he claimed £20 damages. 

The condition of the bond was that if the abovebounden William Bailton should 
keep the King's gaol of the city of York called the Kydcotez, and all prisoners then or 
thereafter therein, safely and securely, without any escapes, from Michaelmas, 16 
Hen. VIII. for one year, and that no prisoner in the custody of William Bailton by 
virtue of his office should be allowed out of his custody without license of the Sheriffs, 
and that Bailton should duely and lawfully do his office as one of the Serjeants of the 
City of York, etc. 

Lawrance had license to imparl until the octave of Michaelmas and then to the 
octave of Hilary. - 

Some time between March 10, 1557, and November 17, 1558, William Beldon 
filed a Bill in Chancery addressed to Nicholas, Archbishop of York, and Lord Chan- 
cellor. He described himself as " one of your Grace's houshold servantes," and stated 
that by an indenture dated March 10, 3 and 4 Philip and Mary [1557], the Archbishop 
had demised to him, among other lands and tenements, " three parcelles of ground 
callid Carres or Pittes, whereof the one is callid Darell Pitt, the other Barbor pytt, and 
the third Oxpasture, lying and being in Yorke Feldes, otherwise callid Nonne Feldes, 
wtin the Counte of the Cite of Yorke, late in the tenure of one Richard Gowthorp of 
the Cite of Yorke, gent., and parcell of the landes, tenementes and hereditamentes of 
the Archbisshoprick of Yorke," to hold from Michaelmas, 1556, for 21 years, at a 
certain yearly rent therein specified. " But so it is, and please your Grace, that one 
Edmond Dobson of .... in the Countie of Yorke and Peter Hudlesse of the 
said Cite of Yorke, ever syns the said lease have kept and yet still kepe the possession 
of the said three parcelles of ground, and will in nowise permyit ne suffer your said 
Orator to entromytt ne medle therwt not to entre therin, by meanys wherof your said 
Orator shall not be able to paie his rent att the daies of paymt therof, and for non 
paymt wherof he shall forfett and losse his said intrist and terme of yeres." He prayed 
for a subpoena against Dobson and Hudlesse. 

Dobson filed an Answer, in which he stated that Edward, late Archbishop of York, 
by indenture dated March 24, 31 Henry VIII., [1540 1, " did demyse unto one Thomas 
Swynerton of Yorke, gent., and servaunt of the saved late Archebieshopp, for the 
terme of manye yeres yet induryng, the same percelles, among other thynges, by the 
name of all those hys demesne landes wthin one feld lying nighe unto the Citie of York, 
commonly called Nonnefeld, except foitie acres of arrable land then in the tenure of 
Willm Mansfeld and tenn acres of arrable land and foure acres of medow late in the 
tenure of John Scalfe, Purcyvaunt, wch sayed lease was confirmed by the Deanc and 
Chapiter of Yorke. The same Thomas Swynerton did demyse unto the same defendant 
all the sayed parcells mencioned in the sayed Bill, for terms of certcn yeres yett 
induryng, by vertue wherof the same defendant entered into the same." He prayed 
to be dismissed with costs. The Replication of Beldon and the Rejoinder of Dobson 
are merely formal. 3

THE BAILDONS 101 



CHAPTER IX. 

THE BAILDONS OF LINCOLNSHIRE 

(Arranged mainly in chronological order). 

Note. — The Author's MSS. is followed throughout this Chapter in the spelling of names. 

Section i. — to 1400. 



Simon de Baildon — See Vol. II, p. 159. 

Undated. — I, Simon Beldon, have granted to William, my son, the moiety of a 
messuage in Kyrkely-on-Bayne, which I have of the feoffment of the Abbat and 
Convent of Kyrkested ; to hold to William, his heirs and assigns, of the chief lords of 
the fee, by the accustomed services. General warranty. Witnesses : John Walker, 
William Nepes [?], Henry Nepes [?], Thomas the Cobbler [sutor], and Robert Yape. 
Pointed seal, very roughly cut. The device appears to be meant for a fieur-de-lys, 
but if so the inscription begins at the bottom instead of at the top. Legend : 
S' SIMONEM. BELDVN : in Lombardic capitals. 1 

Kirkly-on-Bain and Kirkstead are parishes in the wapentake of Gartell in Lincoln- 
shire, near Horncastle. Kirkstead Abbey was a house of Cistercian monks. 

There is some difficulty about this deed, which it is my duty to point out. In 
the first place, there is no trace of this house at Kirklyin later generations of the Baildon 
family, and I cannot suggest any reason why the Abbat of Kirkstead should grant 
property to a small Yorkshire yeoman, so far from his own home. Then again, there 
is no means of guessing at the date of the document, and the writing hardly looks early 
enough for this Simon. The witnesses are no doubt all local men, and apparently of 
humble station, so that we get no help from them. Further, the de is left out in the 
body of the charter. This, however, is not infrequently found, even in early docu- 
ments. 

On the other hand, there was undoubtedly a Simon and a William de Baildon in 
Yorkshire early in Henry III.'s reign, who may well have stood in the relation of father 
and son. There is clear evidence as to the existence of both of them, though not of 
their relationship. The seal, too, though of extremely rough workmanship, bears what 
is evidently a very clumsily cut fleur-de-lys. The spelling of the name, Beldon, and 
Beldun, follows the Domesday spelling of Baildon. 

On the whole, therefore, I believe that this deed relates to the Simon we are now 
considering. We shall see later that in the next century there were several Baildons 
settled in Lincolnshire, including a Simon who lived in the reign of Richard II. ; this 
deed, however, is clearly much earlier than that. 



John Baildon. 

1302, February 2. — William le Provost of Aby, co. Lincoln, received a pardon, 
at the instance of Adam de Welles, for the death of John Beldon and his consequent 
outlawry.*

possibly be Eastrington, near Howden, Yorkshire.

io8 BAILDON AND 



THE REVEREND JOHN BAYLDON OF BRIGSLEY 

AND 

THE REVEREND OSWALD BAYLDON OF MUCKING. 

1562, November 12. — John Bayldon, having been appointed to the Rectory of 
Brigsley, Lincolnshire, compounded for the First Fruits at £7, 41. i,d. He paid one- 
tenth down, viz. : 145. $\d., and the balance was to be paid in four instalments at 
Pentecost and All Saints, 1563, and at the same feasts in 1564. His sureties were 
Thomas Went worth of Asby, Lincolnshire, esquire, and George Forman of Lincoln, 
gentleman. 1 

John Baildon made his will on July 31, 1569. He desires to be buried in the 
Chancel of his church at Brigsley. All his books and apparel he bequeathed to his 
brother, Oswald Baildon, and all his bedding and " household stuffe " to Ann Baildon, 
Oswald's wife. He gives 10s. each to his sister Isabel Ellis and her daughter Jane ; 
105. to his sister Helen Harrison and 6s. %d. each to George, Thomas, John, Cnristo- 
pher, and Alice Harrison, presumably her children ; and 105. to his half-sister, Margaret 
Baildon. He appoints his brother Oswald sole executor and residuary iegatee. The 
will was proved on August 6, 1574. 

155S, Trinity Term. — A very curious line was levied, between Oswald Baildon, 
plaintiff, and William Gascoigne, esq., and William Ball, gentleman, deforciants. The 
property affected consisted of a house and lands in Weardley and Harewood, apparently 
belonging to Gascoigne. Ball was to hold for one month ; then Isabel, daughter of 
Robert Rawson was to have it for a term of 60 years, paying an annual rent of 40s. to 
Baildon and his heirs ; at the end of the term, it was to come back to Gascoigne and his 
heirs. 

1572, Trinity Term. — Oswald Baildon of Manchester, merchant, sued Robert 
Bryd or Bryde, a Chester merchant, for £100. There seems to have been some 
confusion about the defendant's christian name, as in the record of the case he is 
frequently called Richard. It appears that on July 31, 1560, Byrd executed a bond, 
" in the parish of S. Mary de Arcubus in the Ward of Chepe," " in consideration of 
a marriage to be had and solempnised betwene th'above named Oswald Bayldon .... 
and Anne Bryde, doughter of the same Richard Bryde." Byrd was to pay £33, 65. %d. 
by three instalments. The first of these, £23, 6s. 8<f., was to be paid at Michaelmas, 
1560, " at and upon the font stone of the parishe church of Tarvyn within the County 
of Chester, betwene the howres of one and fyve in the afternoone." The other two 
instalments of £5 each were to be paid at Michaelmas, 1561. and Michaelmas, 1562, at 
the same time and place. Bryde also bound himself to " permute and suffer the saide 
Anne and hyr assignes to have receyve and enjoy all such goodes and chattels whatso- 
ever as any person or persons shall geve and bequeath unto the saide Anne " ; and to 
deliver to Oswald or his assigns, upon reasonable request, " one grey mare with a colt." 
The penalty for default was the £100 claimed. The defendant says that the money 
was duly paid, and mare and colt handed over, and that no one had bequeathed any- 
thing to Anne. Oswald denied the first two statements, and the case was remitted to 
Chester for trial. 

The Rev. Oswald Baildon, Vicar of Mucking, Essex, made his will on January 18, 
1575-6, " being in bodie weake and sicke." He desires to be buried in the church or 
churchyard of Mucking. He gives to his son Josias a large number of specific legacies, 
some of which arc worth notice : " one joyned table standing on a frame, with a doble 
carpett thereto belonging, standing in my parlor ; certaine pictures framed about with 
wood, and also a mappe, all hanging in my sayd parlor ; two chestes standing in my

bed chamber, with lockes and keyes belonging to the same, that is to say, the greatest 
and lest ; a drinking cloth wrought with blacke ; twelve peeces of the best pewter ; 
fower of the best latten candlesticks ; one warminge panne ; the greatest brasse pott, 
which his grandfather gave him ; the brasse chaffer ; a great mastuling bassin, one 
sword ; one askyne with a dart ; a blacke staffe with two graves ; my best sadle and 
bridle ; all my bookes, with my penners and inkhornes, my gold weightes, with tuch- 
stones ; my dagger, knifes and bodkynes." He also gives to Josias a bond, dated 
October 20, 1571, " wherein Roger Bride of Clotton in the Countie of West Chester 
standeth bound to me. . . in the somme of fiftie pound for the true payment of 
xxvij /;'." He mentions that he was executorr of the will of his brother, " Air. John 
Baildon, late parson of Brigsley," and gives all his right therein to Josias. He gives 
6d. each to fourteen of the poorest householders in Mucking, and directs " bread, 
drinke, and cheese to be given to the parishioners in the church at the day of my 
buriall." All the residue is to go to Anne, his wife, who is appointed sole executrix ; 
she is to give some of the goods " not bequest " to Susanna and Fortune Baildon, his 
daughters and hers. The right worshipfull Air. Thomas Watts, Archdeacon of 
Aliddlesex, and Air. Ralph Whitling, Parson of St. Andrew's in Holborn, are appointed 
surpervisors ; they are to have " the ordering, guiding and governing of my sonne 
Josias, for to see him well used and set forward to some man of law, or to some other 
good occupation, as they shall thinke most best and convenient for him." Dr. Wattes 
is to have a silver spoon " waighing vj s. viij d." and Air. Whitling " a ringe which he 
" hath in his hands," for a remembrance " to be good to my sonne." 

The will was not executed until February 15 ; it was proved by the widow en 
May 6 following.

THE BAILDONS 115 

1609, November 15. — The Rev. William Baildon, Vicar of Houghton [Holton-le- 
Cley] and Waith 1 in the County of Lincoln, filed a Bill of Complaint in Chancery 
against Hugh Mapletoft and others. He had been Vicar for eight years. The 
Vicarage " consits " of a capital messuage, " one greate barne of three bayes," stable, 
etc., certain glebe land, and of " the tythes of honnye, waxe, and swarmes of bees, 
and of other petite tythes," and of all tithes arising " of the olde tofte and annciente 
toft-steades " in Waith ; also of one quarter of wheat yearly payable out of the Rectory 
of Waith by the owners thereof. Mapletoft and others, who are farmers or under- 
tenants of the Rectory under Thomas Moryson, gentleman, have " by the comaundemte 
perswasion and incoragemente of the said Moryson, taken and carryd away the said 
greate barne unjustlye," and have withheld a large portion of the tithes and the said 
quarter of wheat. 

1611, October 14. — Judgment was given this day in the Court of Exchequer in a 
suit between Thomas Marrison, esquire, and William Bayldon, Clerk, Vicar of Waith. 
Morrison, as lessee of the Rectory under the Crown, claimed certain tithes of corn and 
hay as belonging to the Rectory. The Court considered that the plantiff " did noi 
shewe forthe sufficient proofe to maynteyne his pretended intereste to the sayd tythes 
in question," and therefore dismissed the bill with costs. " And for that it appeared 
that the proffittes of the saiyd Vicaredge were but smale for the mayntenance of a 
Vicar there, therefore the Courte doth further order that the def. shall quietly enjoye, 
perceive and take the tythes belonginge to the sayd lands ; and if the plaintife doe 
comence any new suite againste the sayd def. for the sayd tythes now in question, then 
the Courte will consider of some further costes to be given to the sayd defendant, for 
his wrongfull vexacion."

Lincoln.

Explanatory Notes taken by the author from " A History of Ancient 
Tenures of Land in North Wales and the Marches." By Alfred Neobard 
Palmer and Edward Owen, F.S.A., 1910, 2nd. ed. 

p. 127. — The princedoms, kingdoms and under-kingdoms of Wales were divided 
into " cantrefydd " (plural of cantref) or groups, presumed to contain 100 

townships. Each cantref is supposed to contain two 

" cymydan " (plural of cymwd) or " commots." (More often contained 
3 than 2.) 

p. 129. The 2 chief officers of the commot were the " maer " or mayor and the 

" canghellor " or chancellor Another officer of the commot was 

the " rhir.gyll " that is the usher, summoner or bailiff, called in English the 
" ringild." 

p. 162. — The bailiff of the hundred was the ragiot or ringild of the commot. 

p. 193. — The ragiot occupied within the commot much the same position as the 
sheriff within the wider area of the county. 

p. 194. — One of the raglot's officers was the ringild (but he was often a manorial 
officer only, in free manors).

Between Michaelmas 1401, and Michaelmas, 1402, Raynold was appointed joint 
Keeper of the town of Conway with Hugh de Moreton. The previous Keepers had 
been Roger de Massey and Hugh de Moreton. The garrison was increased from eight 
archers to twenty-four. The wages of the keepers and the archers came to £15, 3*. 4<i. 1 

The Castle at Conway had been surprised and captured by the Welsh on the 
evening of Good Friday, April 1, 1401, when the captain and the garrison of 15 men- 
at-arms and 60 archers, except five, were attending service in the town church. It was 
surrendered to Henry Percy (eldest son of the Earl of Northumberland) on May 28. 2 



Williams' " History of Conway " : — 

81. — One of the towers on the South has a wall built on the town side, and contains 
some spacious apartments ; it is called Twr Llywelyn ; the town wall 
immediately adjoining has also three windows ; there probably was a house 
here, which being principally made of wood has left no remains.

1402, April 3. — Robert Parys, the Chamberlain of North Wales, was directed by 
Prince Henry to pay to Rainald de Bailton 20 marks [£13, 6s. %d., equivalent to some 
£250 of our money] as the Prince's gift in considera.! f his expenses in riding from 
North Wales to London and elsewhere on the Prince's behalf, and for attending the 
Privy Council, and informing them as to the state and governance of North 

On April 10, Parys paid £2 on account. The journey apparently lasted from March 13 
to April 10, 1401. 

Hugh de Moreton and Rainald de Baildon, variously called " esquires " or " men 
at arms," or " lancers " and eight archers, constituted the garrison of the town of 
Conway at this time. The pay of the former was Si. a day, and 2d. a day extra as a 
" reward," while the archers had half those sums. Later in the year the garrison was 
strengthened by the addition of 16 other archers, probably on account of Baildon's 
representations to the Council. 3 

In 1403, Reynold Baildon was paid £4, 85. for his wages and the wages of six 
archers at the usual wages, for service between June 13 and July 17. Reynold Bailton 
and his six fellows also received a reward of 55. each for leading the Prince of Wales 
and his army to Hardclagh [Harlech] and thence to Abristwyth. These sums were 
paid by John Spencer, the Comptroller of the Prince's Household.' 1 The scale of pay 
was apparently 6d. a day for the archers and is. for their leader. Sir Richard Tempest 
is the only prominent Yorkshireman mentioned in this account ; he served for 35 days, 
from June 13 to July 17, with 12 esquires [scutiferi], who are also called " lances," and 
60 archers, and received £77, that is, 2s. a day for himself, one shilling a day for each 
esquire, and 6i. a day for each archer.

the town of Conewey. 2S days' pay, from November 7 to December 5, at lod. a day, 
with this note, that he was so retained by the lord [the Prince of Wales] and the Council 
by letters of the Lord Chamberlain, dated November 7, 1403.' 

1404, April 19. — Paid to Hugh de Morton and Raynold tie Baildon, Keepers of 
the town of Conewey, for the wages of themselves and 24 archers in their train within

5^. a day for each archer £78, 15s.. and £80 on account of arrears. 2 

1404. January 16. — William Venables of Kinderton and Roger Brescy wrote to 
Henry IV., to inform him of the state of affairs in North Wales. Carnarvon Castle 
and town, it appears, was besieged by Owen Glendour and his French allies, with 
engines, sows, and ladders of very great length. The garrison had only twenty-eight 
" defensible " men ; eleven of the best men who were there at the last siege had since 
died, some of the plague, and some of wounds received at the assault. Carnarvon, in 
short, was in great peril. Roger Paris the younger, Constable of the Castle, had man- 
aged to send word to Chester by means of a woman, because he had no man who dared 
come ; and neither man nor woman dared bring any letter, because of the rebels. The 
writers inclosed, for the King's perusal, a letter from " Raignald " de Baildon to 
themselves, from which some extremely interesting details may be gathered. 

To begin with, " al Caenarvan shire," that is the Welsh inhabitants, are proposing 
to go into Anglesey " in al ye haste yat yae mae," taking all the cattle with them into 
the mountains, " leste englishemen shulde be refreshitte yerwith." The Frenchmen 
are making " al ye ordenaunce yat yae mae or can for to assaele ye towne of Caer- 
narvon," " knowyng wel yt ye towne is more febil no we yen bit was ye laste tyme yt 
yae were before hit, forasmuche as a hope of ye beste yt were in Caenarvan yt tyme 
bene god betaghte sethun," i.e., were dead since. This no doubt refers to the eleven 
men already mentioned as having died of wounds or the plague. Help must be sent 
at once, " in haste tyme." Then follows a very interesting item about Harlech Castle. 
" Ferthimore " (writes Baildon) " hit was done me to ' t ; ;:ie dae be a mon of 
Krykett [CriccicthJ for certen, yt William Hunte, Constabil of Hardelagh [Harlech], 
opon Teisdae yt laste was, cam owte of ye Castel for to trete with ye rebell, withowte 
any ostage leade in for hym. And yt ye same tyme, Robin of Holand & othir with 
hym, ye wheche toke Jankyn Evor, laede honde opon ye same William, & lad hym 
awae & two zemen [yeomen] with hym, one Jak Mercer & yt othir Harry Baker, and 
whate yae did with hem I connot sac at yis tyme." Fevian Colier is " ful seke," if 
still alive ; many of the soldiers there, at Harlech, are dead of the plague ; some have 
gone to England, and several have been killed on the way. " But Sir Lewes & ye 
remanent of the sowdiors kepyn ye Castel welynogh yet." The soldiers took the keys 
of the castle from the Constable and delivered them to Fevian Colier and Sir Lewis 
some three months ago. Baildon then proceeds to give his advice on the military 
situation. " I durste lae my hede " (he says) " yat and [if 1 yer were two hundrct men 
in Conowey &two hundret in Caernarvon, abiding yer from Condilmesse [February 2] 
intil ye Feste of Saynt Philip and Jacob [May 1], yat ye commuyns of Caernarvonshire 
woldyn come to pees, and pae hor [their] duities to my lord as wel as evir yae diddyn ; 
& zif hit be tarict til sunimyr, hit wilnot be [done] si lightly, for yen ye rebel! mae lie 
vie owte [out of doors], & so yae macnot nowc." 

This advice seems excellent. Two strong forces, having their headquarters at 
Conway and Carnarvon, would have an immense advantage in a winter campaign 
against the Welsh, when the rebels would have to face the inclement weather among 
the hills. 

The better class among the Welsh were, if not friendly, disposed to submit, 
provided that their protection could be guaranteed from Glendowei's guerillas. " I 
have herde my selfe," (says Baildon) ' mony of ye gentilmen & of ye commyns of

1404, July 20. — Hugh de Moreton and Rainald Baildon were paid £210, 16s. 8d. 
in full payment of all arrears due for their own wages and those of their 24 archers. 2 

1404-5, February 27. — The Prince of Wales, who was then at Hereford, wrote to 
John Defford, Victualler of the Castles in North Wales, directing him to pay " to our 
well-beloved esquire, Reigr.old de Bailton, one of our Keepers of our town of Cone- 
way," 10 marks [£6, 13s. 41/.] out of moneys in Defford's hands from the sale of victuals, 
and also to hand over to Reignold victuals to the like amount ; both of which payments 
were on account of Baildon's wages. 3 

1405, Michaelmas.— Paid to Hugh de Moreton and Reynold Baildon, Keepers 
of Conway, £96, 6s. 8<f., for themselves and their archers. 4 

1406, May 8. — Paid to Reynold Baildon, esq., by warrant from the Prince, 
£3, 6s. 'id., for sums due to him for certain victuals stored in Hardelagh [Harlech] 
Castle in payment of his wages. 5 

This is not very clear, but it seems to suggest that certain stores belonging to 
Reynald had been at Harlech when the Castle was taken by the rebels, and that this 
payment was to compensate for their loss. This view is bjrne out by the next docu- 
ment. 

1406, June iS. — Know all men by these presents that I, Reynold de Baylton, have 
received from Joint Defforde, Keeper of the Victuals of our lord the Prince in North 
Wales, 3 pipes of honey, worth 12 marks [£8j, 5 crannogs of rock salt, [? : salts grossi] 
worth 405., 19 crannogs of corn, worth 4 marks, 10s. [£3, 35. \d.\ and one crannog 
of beans, worth 40c'., out of the Prince's victuals in the 1 aernarvon, in part 

payment of wages due to me by the Prince ; by the receipt of which I own myself 
satisfied and paid to the extent of 20 marks [£13, by these presents do 

acquit the said John thereof." 

During the year ending -Michaelmas, 1406, Moreton and Baildon received £97 
for the wages of the garrison at Conway. 7 

In the following year they received £142. s

124 BAILDONAND 

1407, May 28. — Reynald Bayledon was appointed Sheriff of Carnarvonshire. 
His accounts from that date up to Michaelmas following show that he was charged 
with the receipt of £41, 135. 8J., but many items were not paid, owing to the rebellion. 
His allowances for disbursement for the same period, including his own fee of £10, 
came to £19, js. J,d., leaving a balance due from him of £22, 65. \d. 

He continued in office until Michaelmas, 1408. In his second account he is 
charged with the receipts of £73, 6s. $\d., which includes the previous balance due 
from him, and, as before, several sums which he was unable to collect owing to the 
rebellion. The allowances, including his own fee of £20 and 40s. for parchment, 
come to £43, 15. 41/., leaving an adverse balance of £30, 5s. \\d. The £30 was 
remitted ou account of the sums not actually received. 1 

For the year ending Michaelmas, 140S, Moreton and Baildon, as Keepers of 
Conway, received £250, 135. i,d. for themselves and their archers. 

This is probably a full year's pay, for we are told that for a portion of the time the 
pay was reduced to %d. a day for the two men-at-arms, and 4^. a day for the archers. 2 
A year's pay at the higher rate would amount to £255, 10s. 

For the year ending Michaelmas, 1409, Moreton and Baildon were entered in the 
Chamberlain's accounts as having received £129, 14s. 8d., but this was subsequently 
altered to £84, because more was not paid. 3 

The same figures are given in the accounts for 1409-10. 4 

They were relieved on April 12, 141 1, when John de Boldc, Constable of Conway 
Castle, was appointed Keeper of the town also. They were then paid £90, 13s. \d., 
leaving a balance due to them of £23, 16s. 5 This had not been paid up to Michaelmas, 
1412. 6 

1412-13, Lent. — Inquisition held for North Wales before Thomas, Earl of 

Arundel Quadragcsime, 1 Hen. V., to inquire into certain complaints of 

oppression, etc. [mutilated]. 

The jury said that whereas the commons of the commote of Enyonyth in the 
county of Carnarvon came into the grace of King Henry the King's father, in the 
8th year of his reign, with regard to their rebellion with Owein de Glyndour, at which 
time the greater part of the tenants of the said county had come to grace, and before 
Raynald de Baildon, then Sheriff of the Comity, had humbly appeared at the Hundreds, 
Counties and Sessions, each hundred by itself, to the great profit of the now King, then 
Prince of Wales, as more fully appears by the Sheriffs accounts of that year, and since 
the ensuing year certain persons of the parts of the north of England [del partie de 
Northengleter] were ordained for the war against the rebels of the county of Meryonny th, 
the which persons of the north have robbed all the tenants of the said commo e of 
Enyonyth of all their moveable goods, and have made prisoners all the persons of the 
said commote, men, women and children, and have brought them to the town of 
Carnarvon, where the said persons of the north were arrested by Ranlyn de Dotton 
then Lieutenant within the co. of Carnarvon, for the said wrong done to the said 
tenants, etc. 7 

Reynald de " Baelton " died on September 14, 1416, without heirs of his body. 
At the time of his death he was seized in fee of a place in Conway called " the Anker 
house," by the service of is. .1 year to the chief lord. It was worth 2s. a year. He 
had also hall' a burgage in Conway, held of John Spryton at a fee-farm rent of is. $J. 
This also was worth 2s. a year. He had also one of the towers in the walls of the town, 
called " Llewellyn's Towre," which the Prince [Henry] had granted to him and his 
English heirs. It was worth nothing beyond reprises/

In 1417-8, Richard BaiJdon paid 13s. $d., part of 26.?. 8 J., his fine for having the 
third [sic] part of a burgage in Conway, late in the tenure of Reynald Bayldon, which 
he purchased of John Sprotton. The Escheator delivered to him the half '[sic] burgage, 
in pursuance of the royal writ, under the seal of Carnarvon, dated February 28, 1418. 1 

The balance of the fine was paid in the following year. 2 

The " Ankyrhous," late Reynold de Baildon's was granted to John Hokes on 
August 1, 1418. 3 



Robert de Baildon of Wales, 1401 to 1434. 

1401, June 1. — Robert de Bailton was appointed Surveyor of Works in all the 
Prince of Wales' Castles in North Wales, and Receiver Surveyor and Keeper of stores 
and victuals in the same castles, receiving i,d. a day for his wages. The appointment 
was by Letters Patent of Prince Henry, enrolled in the Exchequer of Carnarvon. On 
June 13, the Prince wrote to Robert Parys, the Chamberlain of North Wales, directing 
him to pay the expenses incurred by Bailton from time to time in doing repairs. Robert 
was paid 13s. qd. on account of his wages. He had executed repairs at Beaumaris, 
Carnarvon, Conway, Criccieth and Harlech Castles. At Carnarvon £83, js. 8£d. 
was spent on making the barbican and rebuilding one arch of the bridge outside the 
gate of the town, which had been destroyed by a flood. 1 

Apparently the duties of acting as Surveyor of Works in all the Castles of North 
Wales at this critical period was considered too much for one man to perform. Accord- 
ingly, 1402, September 22, Robert de Baildon was appointed Keeper and Surveyor of 
Victuals in Conway and Carnarvon Castles, and Surveyor of Works in the Castle and 
town of Conway. At the same time his wages were raised to 6d. a day. The grant 
was by letters patent of Prince Hal, dated at Chester Castle, and was expressed to be of 
the Prince's especial grace, and in consideration of the good and acceptable service that 
his well-beloved servant had done in the past and would do in the future. 5 

1402, September 22. — Henry, eldest son of the most noble King of England and 
France, Prince of Wales, Duke of Guienne, Lancaster and Cornwall, Earl of Chester, 
to all who shall see or hear these our letters, greeting ! Know ye that of our special 
grace and for the good and acceptable [grcakle] service that our well-beloved servant 
[servitor], Robert de Baildon, has done for us and will do hereafter, we have given and 
granted to him as well the offices of Keeper and Surveyor of all our victuals within our 
Castles of Concway and Caernarvan, as of Surveyor of our Works with respect to our 
Castle and town of Coneway aforesaid, taking for his wages, so long as he shall be in the 
said offices, 6d. a day, at the hands of our Chamberlain of Cestre [Chester] for the time 
being, at the usual terms and by equal portions. In witness whereof we have caused 
these our letters patent to be made, during our pleasure. Given under our seal, 
within our Castle of Cestre, September 22, in the 3rd year of the reign of our most 
redoubted lord and father, the King/' 

Robert received his first week's pay, 3$. 6d., on September 29, 1402, but of his 
next year's salary, up to Michaelmas, 1403, he only received £4, 2s. 6d.' : The Treasury 
for North Wales was constantly short of money at this period, and the salaries were 
consequently nearly always in arrear. 

1403, April 22. — Robert Baildon received a special " gift and reward " of 405. by 
special letter of warrant, for leading the Prince of Wales, with his army, beyond the 
mountains in the Counties of Meryonyth and Caernarvon, in August, 1402, when the 
Prince set out to rescue the Hardelagh [Harlech] Castle. 7

CHAPTER XI 

THE BAILDONS OF LONDON AND SURREY 

THE PARISH REGISTERS: LONDON— 1570-1774. 

MIDDLESEX— 1835. 

Francis Baildon, of S. Katherine's by the Tower, London, 
Merchant, born 1568 or 1569 ; died 1618. Parentage unknown. 
The earliest note I have found concerning him is in 1604. 

1604, April 16.— John Williamson of Arro [?] in Scotland, fisherman, examined 
before Sir Julius Cesar, knight, Judge of the High Court of Admiralty, upon certain 
articles ministered on behalf of Anthony Duffeiid and Francis Bayldon, siith : 

He affermcth that the " Anthony " of London, beinge laden with hops, beare, 
aquavite, onions, tobacco, breade, and other mechandizes, arrived in a Sounde betwixte 
Eust and Barry, two of the Islandes of Scotlande, and there came to an anker by reason 
of foule weather ; and uppon arrival! there, the lord of the said Island of Barry, called 
Rory Mackneele, sente Mr. Lory, a preist, and John Makrory [?], Captaine of Killi- 
barr'y, on borde in a boate which' was rowed by six of that Island, and offered kindness 
to trie Mr and Company of the said shipp at the first, and wished them to come under 
the Castle of Kismell ["?], or otherwise the Clanranoldes, beinge in the nexte Island, 
would make spoile of shipp and goodes. Whereuppon Frauncis Baildon, beinge 
merchant of the shipp, wente on shore to the Lord Macknele's Castle, and spake with 
him and at first was kindly used by him, and was persuaded by the said Lord to bring 
the shipp and goodes under his castle, and he should be safe from the Clanfanolds. 
And uppon that persuation the said Baildon returned on bord, and brought the shipp 
and goodes under the said Castle. And this he knoweth to be true, for that he was 
servant to said L. Mackneele, and went on horde the said shippe before her comminge 
in. 

The Clanranardes [sic] wente not aboute to take the said shippe or to take away 
eany of the lives of the company of the said shipp or their goodes ; For there came 
almost forty men from the Clanranardes Island on borde the said shippe the "Anthony," 
and offered not eany wronge unto them in the shippe ; But that tale was given out 
by the L. .Mackneele and liis people, to gett shipp and goodes into there fingers, and 
to spoile the Merchant and Mr of all. He heard the L. Macknele and John Makrory 
[and others] say that they were not subjectes to the Kinge of Scotland, but allwayes 
subjecte to the Kinge of Denmarck, and so theire forfathers were before them. 

The Saturday before Newe Yeare's Day last, the said shipp the " Anthony " 
uppon the persuations aforesaid was brought under the said Castle of Kismell ; and 
beinge there at an anker, the said John Mackrory with aboute xxx persons more, on 
the Munday followinge came on bord the said shipp and rifled the same uppe and 
downe. and first tooke away a rundlette of aquavite and foure hogsheads of beare, and 
caried yt into the said Castle, and there in two dayes dronck yt upp ; and for that 
tyme departed. And the nexte day there came as many more on borde, and dronck 



THEBAILDONS 129 

and eate what pleased them, and when eany of the company refused to fetch sunch 
thinges as they required, they would and did beate them, and inforce them to doe yt. 
And in this manner they used to come on borde, and eate and spoile and carry away 
what pleased them, for the space of aboute thirtye dayes, and what they caried ashore 
was brought into the Castle, and there consumed by the cuntrey people, of this extes 
[examinate's] knowledge, who was dayly on borde with them, and knoweth that thre 
rundlettes of aquavite, aboute nyne tuns of beare, gereate store of onions, aboute xx 
pounde of tobacco, and xiiij or xv bagges of breade, were caried ashore to the said 
Castle, and besides there was dronck and eaten aborde by the cuntrey people aboute 
xiiij or xv tonnes of beare, aboute xxx bagges of breade, aboute fifty gallons of aquavite 
fyve firkins of butter, and greate store of onions, and what more he knoweth not. 
Savinge that foure bagges of hops were lifted out of the said shipp by John Makrory 
by commaundement of the Lord Makneele, and delivered to one Abraim Simpson of 
the kirke of Lardges in Scotland, havinge a barck there, called the " Gifte of God," 
whereof Henry Fenison of the Tovvne of Renfro, nere Glasco, was Mr, and the same 
hops were so delivered in satisfaction of xxx//. for the price of ale, aquavity, wines and 
other things which the said Abraham Simpson brought thither and solde to the said 
Lord Mackneele and John Mackrory. And this he also knoweth to be true, for that 
he sawe the said hops delivered, as also that Francis Baildon tould the sai 
and Makrory that the said hops and goodes before spoyled were belong) I e 

King's Matie of England and were sent to Lofoill [Lough Foyle] in Ireland for p tion 
of his souldiers there, and that they answered they cared not whose goodes they were, 
in his hearinge. 

Yt is true that John Mackrory gretly misused the said Francis Baildon, and had 
slayne him, if yt had not byn that Gillonen Macknele, sonne to the Lord Macknele, 
restrayned him. 

Lory the Preist and one John Mackneele and an old Scottishe man beinge in the 
" Gifie of God " aforesaid, fell out, and the said Lory thereupon tould them they 
had rcceaved good share out of the said shipp the " Anthony " as eany other of the 
Island had. 

He knoweth that the said Francis Baildon had his trunckes and apparell, with 
such other necessaries as he had in the said shipp, taken from him by the said Macknele 
and Mackrory, and the rest aforenamed, at theire pleasure ; for, as he sayth, the said 
Baildon and his company durst not deny cany thinge to the said Lord Macknele, John 
Mackrory, and their consortes, that they would have, for, as he sayth, the best man in 
the " Anthony " durst not deny the worst boy the Lord Macknell had, eany thinge 
he would have. 

1604, April 19. — Raffe Wallin of the Tower Hill nere London, mariner, aged 30 
yeares, sayth :— 

Yt is true that the articulate shipp the " Anthony " of London was laden in this 
porte of London with 35 or 36 tonnes of beare, two hogsheades and vj tearsles of 
aquavite, fyve bagges of hops, certaine onions, and other goodes beionginge to Mr. 
Anthony Duffeild and Frances Baildon, to be caried to Galloway in Ireland : he was 
Boateswanc of the s.iid shipp for the said viadge, 

Yi is true chat the said shipp the " Anthony '" with her ladings, beinge on the sd 
viadge, was inforccd by foule weather to come to. an anker betwixte Eust and Barry, 
aboute the third day after Christmas day last, and the nexte day they putt into a sounde 
there, where aboute xij or xvj readshankes came on borde from the Isle of Eust, and 
there eate and dranck at theire pleasure ; and the nexte day they spent theire maine 
mast by force of weather, so as they were constrayned to make a jury mast ; and whiles 
they remayned there, there came sundry persons on borde both from the Island of 
Eust and from the Island of Barry, and eate and drunck what pleased them ; and some 
of the servantes of the L. Macknele, Governor of Barry, persuaded the Mr and com- 
pany of the " Anthony " to bringe the shipp to the Isle of Barry, aid there she should 
ride safe from eany wronge, and so they wer persuaded also by the Mr of a Scottishe 



130 BAILDON AND 

Barck called " the Gifte of God " which then was at Barry ; and by the same per- 
suations they removed the said Barck and goodes out of the said Sounde to the Island 
of Barry. 

The scrvantes of the L. Macknele who came on borde the " Anthony," tould 
them that the Clanranardes men would cutt theire throtes and make spoile of shipp 
and goodes if they stayed in the Sound, and came not under the Isle of Barry. Not 
withstandinge, he sayth he sawe no such attempte made by them of the said Island 
of Eust, althoughe they came on borde in greate companyes whiles they were in the 
said Sounde. 

He hearde younge Macknele and a Scottishe prcist called Lory, say that they were 
not subjectcs to the Kinge of Scotland, but to the Kinge of Denmarck. 

Uppon the persuasions of the said Lory and others of the Island of Barry who 
came on bord the said shipp, this cxte and company brought the said shipp and goods 
to the Island of Barrye, and under the command of the Castle ; and they were no soner 
come there to an anker, but first the servantes of the said L. Macknele and his lady 
came dayly on bord in such sorte that the shipp for the space of xxx dayes or there- 
aboutes was never empty, day nor nighte, but eate, drunck and caried awaye what 
victualls and goodes as they liked of. In so much that they dronck and caried away 
aboute xxvj tonnes of beare, about xvj or xviij bundreth of breade, aboute two hogs- 
heads of aquavite, the vale we often poundes worth of onions, thre firkins of butter, two 
trunckes of the merchantes, thre bagges of hops, and other goodes, hovve much he 
knoweth not. And sayth the said Lord Macknele gave them his hande sondry tymes 
that they should not be so used and spoyled, notwithstanding they of the Island and 
the servantes of the said L. Macknele dayly spoyled and caried away what they thoughte 
good, in so much that nether merchant, Mr nor this cxte, or eany of the company, could 
be mr of eany thinge, eyther apparell or other provition whatsoever ; nether durst 
deny them eany thinge which they would have ; notwirhstandinge they were tould 
that the said goodes belonged to the Kinges Maty of Englande, and were goinge for 
Ireland for his provitions there, of this extes knowledge, who was then boateswaine 
of the said shippe, and coulde not keepe his bande aboute his neck or the clothes on 
his back, but they tooke them from him. 

One Mackrory, a Captaine commaunded one sack of hops out of the said shipp 
the " Anthony," which was caried on borde the said Scottishe shipp called " the 
Gifte of God," then beinge in the said place, and two sackes of hops more were taken 
away by commaundemente of the L. Alacknele and sente on borde the said Scottishe 
barck, in satisfaction of other thinges wch the said L. Macknele and Captaine Mackrory 
had of the said Scottishe man, as he hearde. And he knoweth that Lory, the preist, 
greatly misused Frances Baildon, and beate his pistoll against him, and had discharged 
yt, as he thinketh, if Gellonen Macknele, then beinge presente, had not spoken unto 
him and restrayncd him. 

He knoweth that Lory, the priest, fallinge out with one of the Scottishe men of 
" the Gifte of God," tould him that he and his company had as good parte of the 
goodes taken out of the " Anthony " as they of the Island had. 

There was taken from Frances Baildon two trunckes, a satten dublett, two dub- 
lettes, clothes of Spanish stuffe verey fair, a hatt band with velvett, some tobacco, how 
much he knoweth not, which the I.. Macknele and his sone and Lady had from him. 

Abraham Acland of Wappinge ncre London, marriner, aged 3S. 

In the moncth of November last paste, the articulate shippe the " Anthonie " 
was laden in this porte of London wth bearc, aquavite, breade, hoppes, and divers 
other goods, to be transported to Loffoile [Loughfoyle[ in Ireland, for the accompte 
of the articulate Anthony Duffcild and Fraunces Baildon; this cxammatc did helpe 
to take in the said goods at Mr Duffeild's keye in St Katherirfs, and was appointed 
boatswaine's mate of the sd shippe for the sd viadge. 

As this exte and companie of the sd shippe the " Anthonie " were sayleinge for 
Loffoile afcresavd, they were inforced by extreamitie of foule weather to come to an 
anker betwixte the Islands of Barry and Easte, in a sounde there, where theye stayed 



THEBAILDONS 131 

by the space of fower daies. The next daie after theye came to anker, as aforesaide, 
there came firste on bord the sd shippe the " Anthonye " one called Captaine John 
Alackrory, wth two Skottishemen, where theye stayed on bord all that nighte ; and 
the next daie after, theye went a shore againe, and intreated Fraunces Baildon, the 
merchante, to goe a shoarc wth them to talke wth the Lord Alacknele, to see if he 
coulde gett thinges to fitt his shippe againe, for that they had spent their masts by foule 
weather. And after the sd Fraunces Baildon had talked wth the sd Lord Alacknell, he 
answered he coulde not doe it unlesse he would bringe his shippe the " Anthonie " 
upp under his Castle, where he had to doe [sic\. Whereuppon, the next daie after 
the said Frances Baildon came on bord againe, togeather wth the sd Alackrorie and 
ten persons more, wch (as the sd merchante saide) the Lord Macknele had sent on 
borde to better man theire said shippe from ClanrennolPs men, Governor of an other 
Island hard bye, whoe would spoile them if theye came on borde them, as the sd 
Alackrorie tould this exte and companie. The said Alackrorie and companie aforesaid 
staied on borde the " Anthonie " in the place where theye first ankored, by the space 
of a whole weeke, and then by theire perswasions the sd shippe was carried upp under 
the Castle of the Lord Alacknele, where there came divers more men of that Island 
on borde, and made spoile of all the goods wch theye carried from London, as aforesaide. 
He, this exte, sawe the servantes of the sd Lord Alacknele, and others of his Island 
wch came on borde, take and carrie awaie what goods theye pleased, and forced this 
exte and his companie to hoise out their goods into theire boates and carrie them a shore. 

He affirmcth that Clanranardes and divers of that Island where he was Governor, 
came on borde the sd shippe the " Anthonie " by force and violence, and made spoile 
and waste of suche goods as pleased them, and carried awaie by force muche of the 
beare, bread, aquavite and other goods, as the Lord Alacknele and his men did, of 
this extes certaine sighte and knowledge, whoe sawe the goods soe spoiled and carried 
awaie, to his great greife as aforesaid. 

He hath heard Fraunces Baildon reporte divers tymes on borde the sd shippe 
the " Anthonie " that the Lord Alacknele did saie that he was not subjecte to the Kinge 
of Scotland, but to the Kinge of Denmarke. 

After the exte and companie came under the sd Macknele's commande wth theire 
shippe and goods as aforesaid, theye were used verie cruellye by him and his people. 
The sd Alacknele and his people did take out of the sd shippe the " Anthonie," by 
force and violence, great store of beare, breade, acquavite and other goods, and carried 
them a shore, and did eate and spoile alsoe greate store on borde, and staved much 
of theire beare and aquavite, notwfhstandinge this exte and companie tould the said 
Alacknele and his people that the goods aforesaid belonged to the Kinge of England, 
and were to be carried to Loffoile for provision of his souldiors there. 

True it is that by commandemt of the said L. Alacknele there v. ere taken out of 
the sd shippe the " Anthonie " fower sackes of hoppes, and carried on bord a Scottishe 
barque wch road hard by them there, whereof Abraham Simpson, of the Kirke of 
Larges in Scotland, was Air, and delivered to the sd Abraham Simpson ; wch the sd 
Alacknele did give unto the sd Simpson for a debte wch he did owe him, as this exte 
heard it there reported amongste the Scottish men. And true it is that the sd Lorie, 
whoe was said to be a Preist (but whether he were a Preiste or a Devill this exte knoweth 
not), did greatlye misuse the sd Frances Baildon, as he did this exte and all the rest 
of his companie. 

Uppon some faleinge out betwixte the sd Lorie the Preiste and Abraham Simpson, 
owner of the sd Scottishe barque called the " Gyfte of God," the sd Lorie charged 
and tould the sd Abraham Simpson that he and his men had as good parte of the said 
goods taken out of the " Anthonie " as they of the sd Island of Barry had, wch the 
sd Scottishernan called Abraham Simpson did not muche denie in this extes hearinge. 

True it is that the sd Lord Alacknele and his men and people of the sd Island of 
Barrie alsoe tooke from the sd Frances ijaiidon one chest and two truncks, togeather 
wth a satten dublett and two dublett clothes newe of Spanish stuffe, and divers other 



132 BAILDON AND 

necessaries and apparrell, what they pleased. For this exte and companie durste not 
denie them anie thinge they demanded wch they had ; for if they did, theye did use 
this exte and companie the worse, and tooke it awaie perforce. 1

ster., with the said Muckell, and the same Muckell gave a negro to the said Kinge. 
What other deaiinges the said Kinge or eany his company had with the said Muckell

same, but how much he knoweth not. 

Also this exte sayth that he paide aboute viij li. in money to the company of 
Captaine Muckell for such goodes as he had of them, as is aforesaid, over and above 
the reckning made as aforesaid wt Captaine Muckell. 

Being asked what goodes John Godolphin, Captaine of Silley, receaved or had of 
Captaine Muckell or his company, sayth that Captaine Muckell and his men were 
kindly imerteyned a shore by [he said Captaine, and had supply of victualls and such

1605, Trinity Term. — Some of the linen claimed by Balthasar de Smith and the 
other Antwerp merchants, and then in the hands of Francis Baidon, was ordered to 
be arrested. 

1606, January 26. — Adward Rower of St. Katherine's, sailor, v. " The Adven- 
venture." Francis Bayldon, a witness for the plaintiff. 2 

1607, Easter Term. — London. Francis Bayldon, late of London, merchant, was 
summoned to answer Henry Brooke, in a plea that he do pay him £60, which Francis 
borrowed of him on March 1, 4 James 1, to be repaid on demand, and which, though 
often demanded, he has not paid. He claims £10 damages. 

Francis comes by Robert Smyth, his attorney, and says nothing in defence. 
Judgment for the plaintiff for the amount of his debt and 20.t. for damages. 3 
In the same year — 1607 — Francis has a suit in the Admiralty Court against one 

Robert Martyn. I have not found any details. The " libel " or bill of complaint 

was dismissed on November 21, but without costs. 

1609, June 23. — Francis Baildon, one of the officers [ministri] of this Court, aged 
40, sworn and examined. 

[The bulk of the deposition has little to do with the witness himself, and has not 
been copied by the Author.] 

The said shipp " the Grace " was arrested by this exte in Saltenashe Water 
[" the porte of London, struck out], by the warrant wch Jacob Stephens procured out 
of this Court against the saide shippe 

He came first acquainted with Jacob Stephens in Plimouthe, uppon occasion that 
he came to this respondent and entreated him to arreste the said shipp " the Grace " 
by vertue of a warrante which he had under the seale of this Courte 

He first sawe " the Grace " in Linnard Water, nere St Germans on the sea coast 
of Cornewall, when he arrested her at the sute of the said Jacob Stephens, the said 
shipp being then bond forth for Newefoundlande 

Per me Francis Bayldon. 4 

1609, December 7. — Frar.cis Baildon was ordered to arrest the ship " Mary " of 
St. Malo, which had latcl zd and spoiled on the high seas by certain pirates. 

He was evidently acting as Bailiff or other officer of the Admiralty Court though 
not so described. 

1610, May 18. — Francis Baildon, here described as " one of the Officers of this " 
[the Admiralty] " Court," aged 42, deposed that on December 7, 1609, he was ordered 
by Mr. Mouldsworth to arrest certain goods of Andrew Pawling on board the ship 
" May Flower " of London. He thereupon boarded the said ship, then " riding at

an anker in the River of Thames, over against Ratcliff Mill." Having seized the 
goods, he returned to St. Katherine's Stairs, " and when he landed, the Tower bell 
did ringe, which allwayes ringeth at elleven of the clocke in the forenoone." 

My fiiend Mr. R. G. Marsden, the well-known authority on all Admiralty matters, 
(to whom I am indebted for these notes), tells me that Baildon was probably one of 
the Deputy-Marshals of the Admiralty Court. There were several ships called the 
" May Flower " at this time ; Mr. Marsden, who has spent much time in tracing 
them, says that the one here referred to is the ship that afterwards became so world- 
renowned in connection with the Pilgrim Fathers. 

1611, July 20. — A warrant was issued by the Admiralty Court to Francis Baildon, 
one of the Messengers of the Royal Chamber [units ex nuntiis Camere Regies], to arrest 
James Easton and William Twynly of Bristol, wherever they could be found, to answer 
Sir Andrew Zimenes, knight, Hieronimus Zimeues, and others, who claimed £1000 
in a cause of spoil. 1 

1615, May 2. — Francis Baildon of the Precinct of Saint Katherine's near the Tower 
of London, Merchant, filed a Bill of Complaint in forma pauperis against Henry Brooke, 
Citizen and Barber Surgeon of London. There had been " much tradinge and 
trafique " between them, and upon taking certain accounts, it appeared that Baildon 
owed Brooke £160. This sum had been satisfied all but £31, to secure which Baildon 
signed a judgment for £61. The £31, however, was duly paid ; nevertheless Brooke 
caused Baildon to be arrested, " uppon pretence of somme money to be behinde." 
The dispute was, " by rnediacion of freindes," referred to the arbitration of Peter 
Hutchins, Merchant Taylor, and Roger Hollowaie, Grocer, Citizens of London, and 
Baildon and Brooke " bounde themselves either to other in a hundreth poundes a 
peecc, by the enterchaungeable dcliverey of a sixe pence," to abide their award. The 
arbitrators decided that within 15 days Baildon should deliver to Brooke " his Mates 
Letters patents under the Greate Seale of England for the collection and gatheringe 
of the almcs and charitable benevolence of all lovinge subjectes whatsoever inhabitinge 
wthin the Counties of Suffolke and Norffolke and wthin the Cittie of Norwich," in 
full satisfaction of all claims by Brooke ; and Brooke was to pay Baildon £15 within 
five months, and to give a bond as security. At the time the award was made Baildon 
was under arrest at the suit of Brooke, and so " to procure his enlargmt was in somme 
sorte " compelled thereunto." Brooke refuses to pay the £15, and has arrested 
Baildon for the third time on the same judgment, contrary to the terms of the award. 
Baildon is still in prison, " where he now lyeth in greate miserie like to perrishe, wthout 
hope of release unless yor Lordp be good and favorable unto him." No reference 
given. 

1618, September 12. — Letters of Administration to the personal estate of Francis 
Bayldonn of Saint Katherine's next the Tower, who died abroad, were granted to 
Abigail Bayldonn, the widow. 



Roger Baildon, of Barn Elms, in the County of Surrey. 

15SS, Easter Term. — Middlesex. Roger Baildon, gent., sued iohn Fraunces 
of London, letherseller, citizen of London, for £40 due on a bond dated 6 September, 
28th year, at Westminster, payable on December 21 at the dwelling house of Henry 
Marshe in Pawle's Churchyarde. Bond produced. Judgment for the plaintiff, with 
33s. damages. And because Roger has recovered the same debt and damages against 
Henry Marshe, he is only to have one execution against John and Henry or either 
of them. 2

1592, September 14. — In the name of God, Amen ! The fourteenth day of 
September, Anno Domini, a thousand, fyve hundred, nynctye two, Roger Bayldon of 
Barne Eimes in the Countye of Surrey, beying of good and perfect mynde and remem- 
braunce, made and declared his last will and testament nuncupative, or the like in 
effect, in manner and forme followinge : First he gave and bequeathed his soule into 
the handes of Allmightie God, and his body to the earthe from whence yt came. As 
concerninge the disposicion of all and singular the goodes, chattels and debtes wherwith 
God had endowed hym, he willed and bequeathed in manner and forme folowinge, 
viz. : after his debtes payed and funeralls dischardged, his full mynde, will and intent 
was that John Eayldon, Josua, Elisha and Sara Bayldon, the children of Edward 
Bayldon, his brother, dwellinge in the Ould Jurye in London, should have the residue 
of his said goodes, chattells and debtes, to be divided amongst them, and he, the sayed 
Edward, thcire father, to have the use of the saied goodes, chattells and debtes untill 
the saied children shall accomplishe and come to theire several ages of one and twentie 
yeares. Provided allwayes that he theire saied father shall put in sufficient bonde 
for the securitie and true paymente of theire saied porcions. Theise wordes or the 
like in effect were spoken in the presence and hearinge of Raphe Hall, Richard Bicerton 
and Robert Price. Administration with will annexed was granted September 19, 
1592, to Edward Bayldon, the natural and lawful brother, during the minority of John, 
Johosua, Elisha, and Sara Bayldon, children of the said Edward, and legatees named 
in the said will. 1 



Edward Baildon of Old Jewry, London, gentleman. 

Edward's letter to his cousin Robert Baildon of Baildon, dated August 26, 1589, 
has already been printed [ante, vol. ii. p. 230]. He was then living in Old Jewry, and 
appears to have married and to have had a family. He refers several times to his 
cousin " Perslow," whom I take to have been one of the Paslews of Riddlesden. 
" Cozen Perslow " was evidently a near neighbour of Robert's, and was going from 
London to Yorkshire and back. Perslow had informed Edward of " his comming 
downe to yow," and Edward asks Robert " to send by my Cozen Perslow yr Petigree 
and ours." 

!594j January 19. — Administration was granted to Edward Baildon and Ursula 
his wife of the personal estate of their two sons Elisha and John, who had died intestate 
and probably under age. The grant was in respect of their share of the residue under 
the will of their uncle Roger. 



Joshua Baildon, son of Edward of London. 

l6oo, October 17 — Joshua Baildon was admitted to the Merchant Taylors' 
School, " son of Edward Bayldon of London, gentleman." 

1616, May 4. — Whereas in the moneth of March last, a certen Bark, called the 
Phenix of Dovor. was cast away by fowle weather upon the Goodwin Sandes wthin

Dovor, Mariner, was Master and part owner ; Now know all men by these presentes 
that I, the sayd Fleminge, do freely and willingly confess and acknowledge that the 
sayd Bark by this casualty doth absolutely belonge and apperteyne, as a wreck, unto

1635. — Joshua Baildon was one of the witnesses to the will and codicil of Sir 
Walter Pye, Knight, Attorney of the Wards, dated respectively August 22 and Nov- 
ember 2.- 

1651. — The Rarities of the World, etc. 

Joshua Baildon translated several books. The earliest in date [1651I, is " The 
Rarities of the World." For reproduction of title page see plate. The preface, called 
" The Epistle,'' is addressed " To my honoured friend and kinsman Paul Holdenby, 
Esquire. Sir, When you arrived at Dover from your Travels, near upon twenty years 
since, it was my happiness to meet you there, when I received a token of your love, 
out of the store you brought with you, a book, Petrus Messia, translated into French, 
which hath lien by me ever since, till now, not at all perused ; for which I blame my 
own negligence. But being once entered into it, I found great delight in the varieties 
of the histories, and withall, that there might be much profit gathered therein, which 
encouraged me as I read, to translate it into English . . . which I dedicate to you, as 
a small recompence for the many ancient favours I have received from you . . . for 
which I must yet, and will ever remain, 

" Your affectionate and thankfull friend, 
Joshua Baildon." 3 

The two copies in the possession of the author and the present editor are of the 
same date, and, in the main, identical with the copy in the British .Museum. There 
are, however, certain differences which show that if there are not two distinct 
editions, certain alterations were made during the progress of th; printing so that 
the later printed copies differed from the earlier ones. 

The greater part of the second edition (if edition it was) is absolutely identical 
with the first, and has clearly been printed from the same type, and that without 
the type having been re-set up.

THE BAILDONS 141 

The contents of the book are entertaining reading and give a good picture of the 
superstitions and fancies of the time. The headings of some of the chapters may be 
quoted. 

Chap. I. Why men lived longer in former ages, than now in these daies. 
Chap. V. How commendable it is to speak little. 

Chap. VIII. Why man goeth upright : why he weigheth more fasting, than when 
he hath eaten : and the cause why he weigheth more dead than alive, with 
other pretty discourses. 

Chap. XI. Of men that are bred in the sea, and some other things of note. 

Chap. XXVI. Of some properties of the Viper, and how the flesh of it may safely 

be eaten. 
Chap. XXXII. Wherefore sleep was given to man, and how too much sleep is 

hurtful and naught. 
Chap. XXXIIII. What a mischievous thing it is to desire a revelation of things in 

the world to come. 

1663. — The second in date is a manuscript book with the title (see plate) Historie 
of the Great Kingdom of China, etc. On the page opposite the title page is drawn the 
same device or monogram which appears on the title page of the book on Hereticks, 
(see below). It does not appear to have been printed. 

" Historie of the greate Kingdome of China, in the East Indies. Containeing 
the Scituation, Antiquities, Fertilitie, Religion, Ceremonies, Sacrifices, Kings, Magi- 
strats, Manners, Customes, Lawes, and other memorable Thinges of that Kingdome. 
Together with three voyages made thither in the years 1577, 1579, and 15S1, with the 
most remarkable singularities there seene and taken notice of. Allsoe an Itinerarie 
of the New World and the discovery of new Mexico in the yeare 1538. Translated by 
Jos. Baildon of the Society of that most magnificent hospitall founded by Thomas 
Sutton, esquire, in Charterhouse, 1663." 

This Jos. Baildon published " Rarities of the World," translated from Pero 
Mexia, in 4to, 165 1 (see ante.) 

He does not say from what original he translated the present book, but that it 
" was written by an author who was an eyewitnesse of many things therein conteyned, 
and by the care of others having partly known and understood them from Persons 
of note who had been in China, and partly drawen and extracted as well from Bookes 
and Histories of the Country as from many worthy manuscripts and Registers worthy 
of credit, which have been presented to him at Mexico and at Philipi, and translated 
in the same places by natural Interpreters." (Preface.) 

This extends as far as the end of the 3rd Book and first part of the History, and 
appears to have been in the author's own writing. 1 

A note recently made in the book, which is in the British Museum, says " Trans- 
lated from the French translation of Juan Gonzales de Mendoza's HisLoria de las cosas 
mas notabiles del gran Regno de la China (1585)." The whole book is apparently 
in the handwriting of Joshua Baildon, and is identical in character with that of the 
book on Hereticks. 

Another manuscript book of 163 pages and an index was purchased by the author 
some years ago. It is neatly written and bound with new name labels affixed. The 
title page : 

The Damnable Opinions, Blasphemies and Tenents both of Antient and Moderne 

Hereticks. Theire Lives and End. 

1 Calendar of the Harleian MSS. 5069. 



142 BAILDONAND 

A curious design and monogram are drawn in the lower half of the page (see plate) 
and the date is 1555. This is an error ; for included among the heretics are the 
Quakers, who were not known by that name before the middle of the 17th century. 

This same design and monogram appear on the page opposite the title page of the 
Historic of China. Comparison of the two volumes shows that both are written by 
the same hand, presumably that of the author, Joshua Baildon. 

There is a copy in my brother's handwriting of " Bigarrures, or The Pleasant, 
and witless and simple Speeches of The Lord Gaulard of Burgundy." Translated 
by J. B. of Charterhouse. Lower down the title page is the device as in the other books. 

The date of the translation is not mentioned. My brother's note runs " The 
foregoing pages are translated from ' Les Bigarrures et Touches du Sieur Gsulard, 
et les Escraignes Dijonnoies,' by E. Tabouret, and probably from the Paris edition 
of 1603." Later editions published at Rouen, 1640, and Paris, 1662, add to the title — 
" de nouveau augmentee des plussieurs Epitaphes, Dialogues, et Ingenious Equivo- 
ques." It consists of short stories or episodes in the taste and manner of the period 
more or less loosely strung together.

8vo. ; preface, pp. viii ; the Translator to the Reader, pp. ii, signed J.B. ; a Tabic 
of the Several Discourses, pp. ii ; pp. 114. 

This is not certainly known to be by Joshua Baildon. The Preface is signed 
J. B., and the style and contents of the book suggest strongly that he is the translator. 
Like the Rarities of the World, it deals with curious customs and superstitions, as 
the following extract from the Table of the Several Discourses will show. 

VI. Wherefore in Cyprus they por:ra\'d Venus with a Beard. 

VIII. Wherefore Physitians affect to wear great D: 

XIII. Wherefore Old people Sleep ordinarily less than young ones. 

XVIII. In dispraise of Women. 

XIX. Whether is most potent to beget Affection Weeping or Singing.

John Baildon, Curate of St. Mildred's, Poultry, London ; ob. 1571. 

Proceedings of the Huguenot Society of London, vol. ix, p. 455, by Foster Watson, 
M.A. — Apparently Jean de Beauchesne was the first foreign writing master in England. 
Roger Ascham was proud of his calligraphy, and appears to have taught Queen Eliza- 
beth writing, but Beauchesne was the first in England to publish (1570) a writing-book 
with specimens of all the usual kinds of writing, English and French secretary, Italian, 
Chancery, and Court. 

William Massey 1 states that Beauchesne (otherwise known as John Baildon) lived 
near St. Bartholomew's Hospital. His book was imprinted from wooden blocks. 
It contains forty-five leaves. Prefixed to it there are rules in verse (by " E. B.") 
" for children to write by," as well as other verses teaching how " to make ink." 

1571. — Beauchesne and Baildon (title) A Booke Containing Divers Sortes of 
hands, with the Italian, Roman, Chancelry and court hands. 2 There is a copy in the 
British Museum.

1632, October 22. — William Baildon, gentleman, swore an affidavit in Chancery 
in the suit of Francis Plowden, esquire, against Edward Plowden, knight, and others. 
He deposed that on the fourth instant he went to one of the defendants' mansion 
houses, called Wansted, in the County of Southampton, apparently to serve him with 
a subpoena. He was told by the servant or tenant that Sir Edward was not there, but 
was believed to be in Ireland, as letters had been received thence about three weeks 
before. Baildon showed the subpoena and left the label. He then went, on the same 
day, to another house of Sir Edward's at Stanstead in Sussex, and was again told that 
Sir Edward was in Ireland and was expected back in about a fortnight. Baildon left 
the subpoena there ; it was to require the defendant to appear in the Court of Chancery 
on 20 October, to hear judgment in the suit on the 23rd.- 

1634, May 15. — By deed, Rees Probert of Llanvarcth, in the County of Radnor, 
gentleman, mortgaged two messuages and land at Llanvareth, and all other land there 
purchased by Robert Price, deceased, his father, to William Baildon of the parish of S. 
Andrew's, Holborn, gentleman, to secure £200. 

Settlement of the Rixton Estates, 10 March 1641. 
The original document at Broughton Hall is much damaged by mice. 
Richard Masey of Rixton the settlor, born 1573, died 1645. 
Hamlet his eldest son died 1636. 
Richard, Hamlet's eldest son, born 1619, died 1667 : .he married in 1640 or 1641 May 
daughter of Francis Plowden of Plowden, Salop. 

Settlement on 

1. Richard the younger and his sons in tail. 

2. George his brother, and his sons. 

3. Thomas his brother and his sons. 

4. William his brother and his sons. 
These were the four surviving sons of Hamlet. 

5. Thomas Masey of Standish, eldest son of William (younger) son of Richard 

the elder, and his sons. 

6. Hamlet, another son of said William. 

This appears to exhaust the male descendants of Richard the settlor. Semble, Settlor's 
brothers had no male issue or their male issue living. Male issue of Settlor's father 
exhausted. 

7. Thurstan Masey son of Richard, uncle of the Settlor, and his sons. 

8. Thomas M :r son of said Richard. 

This appears to exhaust the sons of Richard Masey, the Settlor's grandfather.

lor a sufficient time been confined to his Led by a tit of the gout ; but a fit of the gout 
is not to be had for love nor money for poor Mr Savage ; nay, the utmost efforts of all 
the choristers and singing boys could not furnish him with so much as a cold, not a 
regular creditable cold 6

Bailton, " scryvayn," for trespass. The venue was laid in Cambridgeshire, so the

appointed her husband, her sister Anne, and William Bayldon to be her executors. 
The latter was charged with the following highly interesting commission : — 

And as concerning two pilgrimages not yet performed by me, the one setting out 
from the manor of Hobury to the Image of Blessed Mary at Walsyngham [Norfolk], 
and thence to the tomb of Saint Richard, sometime Vicar of Castre [Caistor] in the 
County of Norfolk ; and the other setting out from Hobury aforesaid to the tomb of 
Saint Thomas the Martyr at Canterbury ; the which pilgrimages I have vowed faith- 
fully to perform — I desire that William Bayldon shall undertake and perform them 
in my name, as soon as possible, to the honour of Almighty God, Blessed Mary the 
Virgin, and Saint Thomas the Martyr, in case I shall happen to die before I complete 
the same, at my proper costs, there to make oblations and to pray for my estate in the 
most devout and best way he can. 2

struck Carter with a knife ; Carter fled and Baildon chased him, always striking and 
wounding him with the knife, as far as a wall, beyond which Carter could not go ; 
Carter then drew his knife, perceiving that he was in danger of death, and to save 
his life he struck Baildon a single blow in the left eye. which penetrated to the brain, 
whereof he soon died ; this was done without malice aforethought and in self defence 
and Carter could not otherwise have escaped alive. On this verdict Carter was sent

ADDENDA TO VOL. I. 



Mr. Louis Ambler, F.S.A., F.R.I.B.A., Author of "The Old 
Halls and Manor Houses of Yorkshire," and " The Ambler Family," 
writes as follows : — 

Vol. I. pp. 39, 45 and frontispiece. 

Re Baildon Hall. I think the conjectural restoration showing an additional wing at 
the north end was entirely wrong, as I feel sure that there never was any such wing, 
the stonework and the projecting chimney breast on the north front being the original 
work and never altered, except that a sash window has been substituted for the stone 
mullion window on the first floor as in most of the rest of the house, although the 
original mullion window remains on the ground floor, this being now blocked up, 
but it previously lighted the passage which was said to lead to nowhere, but I am of 
opinion that the supposed passage was either a store room or else part of the north- 
east room, as the plan was quite complete of a typical Hall or Manor House of the 
period, without any additional north wing, and it would be more than the average 
size of such buildings. The Chancery Proceedings in 1564 probably referred to 
some other building, perhaps detached, the present low one-story lean-to addition 
on the north-west being obviously modern and of very inferior construction and 
materials. I believe I satisf.ed your brother (the author) that he had made a mistake 
about this imaginary north wing and also about the date of another Baildon house, 
viz., Brackenhall, which he described as " clearly late seventeenth century " (v. p. 45) 
whereas I am quite convinced that it is early seventeenth century, as it has all the 
characteristics of that period, viz., the semi-circular headed doorway and the five- 
light wide and three-light wide stone mullion windows, with double splayed heads and 
jambs, whereas the late seventeenth century houses of that locality invariably had 
either depressed arched or square headed doorways and windows were never more 
than two-light wide, as at Trench House, (v. p. 56) built in 1697, where the windows 
have no mouldings nor splays, but are quite flat. Moreover, I have further evidence 
that Brackenhall was built between 1615 and 1630 (probably nearer the former date) 
by my ancestor Richard Ambler, who in 1615 inherited certain property in Baildon 
under the will of Edward Bynnes of Brackenhall, Baildon, and went from Clayton, 
near Bradford, where he was a yeoman, to live at Brackenhall, where he was assessed 
in goods £3 I s - °--'- m tne Lay subsidy 1621, when William Baildon of Baildon Hall 
w.-.s assessed in land ("4 $s. 4./. Richard Ambler died in 1630 and is described in his 
will, dated 17th August, 1630, as of Brackenhall, Baildon, clothier, i.e., Cloth maker 
(as most farmers of that date and locality combined the two), probate being granted 
at York, 19th, December, 1630, to Thomas and Lawrence Ambler, sons and executors, 
and he left the house he lived in (which clearly belonged to him or he could not have 

devised it) to his wife Mary, then to his son Thomas Thomas Ambler, yeoman, 

remained at Brackcnhali and appears as the lessee in 1635, and was assessed at is. $d. 
for 13 acres in 1645. 

Mr. Louis Ambler has with much difficulty read some of the entries in the 
damaged Baildon Parish Registers, 1622 to 1694, and gives the following as additions 
to those in the text, pp. 46, 47, relating to Brackenhall : — 



flt- 



174 BAILDON AND 

1630, August 19. — Richard Ambler, buried. 

1634. — Mary, widow of Richard Ambler, buried. 

1635. — Thomas Ambler, married Jennet Beauland. 

1636, June 12. — Thomas, son of Thomas Ambler of Brackenhall, baptised. 

1638, May 13. — Richard, son of Thomas Ambler, baptised. 

1670, '.larch. — John, son of Richard Ambler of Brackenhall and his wife Ann, 
baptised. 
Later entries are : — 

1705, July 14. — Anne, daughter of John and Mary Ambler of Brackenhall, 
baptised. 

1719, June 27.— Richard and Robert (twins) sons of John and Mary Ambler 
of Brackenhall, baptised. 

1741, May 7. — William Ambler married Mary Mortimer. 

1743-4, January 1. — Mary, daughter of William and Mary, baptised. 

1746, December 7th. — Thomas, son of John Ambler (third son of John Ambler 
of Brackenhall and Air. Louis Ambler's great-great-great-grandfather), baptised. 

Four generations of the Amblers lived at Brackenhall from 1615 to 1740 and 
there are still represenatives of the family in or near Baildon, descendants of Richard 
Ambler, who went there from Clayton in 16 15. 

A fairly complete pedigree of these Amblers for the last 600 years is given in Mr. 
Louis Ambler's book on " The Ambler Family " published in 1924.

At Blayshaw Gill, near Middlesmoor, about 6 miles north-west of Patcley Bridge, 
are a number of shallow pits of various sizes, formerly said to be ancient pit-dwellings, 
but now proved to have been made for getting ironstone. Close beside these pits 
are many large heaps of slag, called " baal-hills.'' 1 

PLACE NAMES OF SOUTH-WEST YORKSHIRE. 
Vol. I. p. 78. 

Beldon, Bell Greave, Bell Hagg, Bell House, Bell Scout, Baildon. 

In Kirkburton we find Beldon Brook ; in v . Jon Hill ; in Fulstone, 

Bell Greave; in Erringden, Bellhouse Moo.- and Bell Scout; in Hallam, Bell Hagg; 
and in Shelmanthorpe, Baildon Dike. 

Bellhouse, Erringden, W.C.R. 1307 Bellehus, W.C.R. 1308. Bcllehomc comes 
from O.E. belle, a bell, and hits, a house. The name could be applied to other struc- 
tures as well as to the belfries of churches. 

Beldon is to be found at least three limes in Yorkshire. The terminal represents 
OE dun, a hill, and it is noteworthy that quite a considerable number of Yorkshire 
hill-names have as their first element the word Bel-, as, for examples, Bella, Beldi, 
Beldoo, Beldow, Bellow, Bell Hill, and Bell Howe, all in the North Riding. Two 
of these, Beldoo and Beldow, appear to have a Celtic terminal representing Welsh 
du, black, dark, and it Seems very probable the first element also is Celtic. Note in 
this connection 111 Bell in Westmorland. 2

YORKSHIRE SURVEYS AND OTHER ELEVENTH CENTURY DOCU- 
MENTS IN THE YORK GOSPELS. 

By W. H. Stevenson. 

p. 2. MS. of Latin Gospels belonging to Dean and Chapter of York — in a very- 
early nth century hand. Bound up at end are several pages of parchment containing 
the nth century entries. 

p. 3. Three documents, to which I have given the name of surveys, cf the 
archbishop's estates at Sherburn-in-Elnet, Otley and Ripon . . . They commence 
upon the verso of the last leaf of the gospel of St. John. (fo. 149 verso-150). 

p. 13. A termini r< n is supplied by Cnut's charter [fo. 152, r^cto and 

verso] which cannot be later than 102 1. It is to be presumed that so important a 
document would be entered into this register within u few years of its promulgation. 
The issue of this charter of liberties after the war and disturbances that preceded 
Cnut's accession to the throne might well induce the archbishop of York to overhaul 
his estates, which must have been slowly recovering from the ravages of the prolonged 
struggle. 

p. 16. To Ortanlcage [Otley pertain) four ploughlands, and in Bogeltune 
[Baildon] two, and in Hafeces-weorde [Hawksworth] two, in the second Hafeces- 
weorde [Hawksworth] two, in Dentunc [Denton] two, in Timbcl [Timble] one

Yorkshire or the north generally that have come down to us . . . They contain the 
earhest account of any of the great sokes so characteristic of the Danish parts of 
England, and they afford the earliest clear instance of the use of " socn " as a descrip-

exercised. 1

Vol. I, pp. 330-332. 

MARRIAGE OF SIR NICHOLAS DE STAPLETON 
Subsequent to the printing of Vol. 1, the author found a useful connrmaiion of 
the statement that Isabel was the daughter of John de Richmond. When Sir Miles 
de Staplcton (son of Nicholas and Isabel) was going abroad in the French wars, he on 
four occasions appointed Peter de Richmond as one his attorneys during his absence, 
viz: on September 25, 1342, June 21, 1345, May 18 and June 21, 1345, September 6, 
1347. Peter was a son of Thomas de Richmond and I presume Isabel's first cousin. 1

In Pax, No. 50, (1917), is a review of Archdeacon Pearce's book The Monks of 
Westminster. The writer states (p. 345) that " the practice at Westminster as else- 
where was to change the surname to the name of the birth-place., while retaining the 
christian name." The statement follows an account of one of the monks, William 
Surreys or Southeron, which, the writer remarks, " looks like a family name," and 
the only illustration he gives of the alleged practice is the case of Edward Tudor, uncle 
of Henry VII, alleged on the authority of Camden " u who died in 1623] to have \ 
monk at Westminster, and to be identified by Archdeacon Pearce with an Edward 
Eridgewater, who said his first mass in 1467-9. '

1592. Nov. 3. — Grant by William Steade of Baildon to Christopher Mawde of 
Thwaytes in co. York, gent., and John Midgley of Headley in Bradford Dale, yeoman 
(in performance of certain covenants contained in certain indentures dated the first 
day of November last past before the date of this present writing made between 
Robert Baildon of Baildon, gent., of the one part and the said William Steade and 
Nicholas Steade son and heir apparent of the said William Steade) of all and singular 
his messuages, houses, edifices, gardens, lands, etc., rents in Baildon, Shipley and 
Priestthorpe in the co. of York. (Deed of Feoffment in pursuance of Marriage 
articles).

William Baildon of Baildon, gent. 

1595, Easter Term. — Jervase Fitz Williams complained of William Bayldon of 
Baildon, gent., John Illingworth of Baildon, yeoman, John Smyth of Baildon, labourer, 
Edward Bynns of Baildon, husbandman, John Wood of Baildon, labourer, and Francis 
Mitton of Baildon, labourer, for breaking his close at Baildon on 20 September 35 
Eliza., and felling and carrying away 10 oaks, 20 birches [betulas], 10 ashes and 10 
beeches and taking 40 cartloads of underwood, to the value of £40. He claimed £40 
damages. 

The defendants said that the close where the trespass was supposed to be done 
was 2 acres of wood in Baildon, called March Wood, which then and now were the 
soil and free tenement of William [Baildon], where he in his own right and the other 
defendants as his servants had the right to cut trees and underwood. 

The plaintiff said that the place was 50 acres of wood in Baildon lying between 
lands of Jervase and lands of William Stead, William Whitacres, Robert Bayldon, 
Nicholas Crabtre [blank] Tayler, widow, and Nicholas Tayler, towards the north, 
and lands of Robert Bayldon, John Popley and said Jervase on the south, and abutting 
on a parcell of common called the Banck on the east and a place callad Blaykebroke 
Banck on the west. 

The defendants admit taking 2 cartloads of underwood in the said 50 acres, and 
they say that William Bayldon was seised of a messuage, a toft and a croft, containing 
61 acres of land and meadow, in respect of which he had estovers, viz : to cut wood 
in the 50 acres for repairs to the house and for hedgebote and fuel and he therefore 
took one cartload of underwood to repair the hedges and one for fuel. 

The plaintiff repeats the allegation of felling trees, and denies the alleged right 
to estovers. 

1600, Easter Term. — John Dickeson complained of Thomas Armitage of Bayldon, 
yeoman, Frances Wade of Bayldon and Jenett Wade of Baildon, spinsters, for entering 
40 acres of wood in Bayldon (which William Bayldon demised to the plaintiff for a 
term not yet ended), and ejecting him. On January 14 Anno 42, by an Indenture 
(produced) William Bayldon demised to the plaintiff the said 40 acres for a term of 
s years, and he was possessed thereof until the defendants ejected him; he claimed 
£40 damages. Armitage came and defended the force and injury and had leave to 
imparl to Cras. Trinity. 1 

1 601, Easter Term. — Jervase Knype sued William Baiidon of Baildon, gent., 
£5 10s. debt. 2 

1601, Easter Term. — William Bayldon complained of William Kendall of Bayl- 
don, clerk, for breaking his close at Bayldon and for damaging and consuming his 
corn and grass there to the value of £10, by depasturing catde therein.' 1

ADDENDA TO VOL. III. 

Vol. III. p. 144. 

I am indebted to Mr. F. W. Cudlip of the Bishopgate Institute, London, for the 

following note : — 

" The history of handwriting in England, using the word in its democratic sense as 
a popular rather than an ecclesiastical or legal accomplishment, seems to begin nearly 
half a century later-than in Italy. In the early Middle Ages, English scribes earned a 
European reputation for the beauty of their calligraphy ; and until about the middle of 
the fifteenth century, education was both soundly and widely promoted by the monastic 
schools. But this healthy condition was followed by a period of decline ; and it was 
not until the third quarter of the sixteenth century that the revival of learning had 
become sufficiently general for the profession of writing-master to be possible, depen- 
dent, as it had to be, on the support of the people at large. 

Thus, while we find that in Italy the popular demand for writing copies was S3 
great that eighteen editions of Tagliente's work alone were called for between 1524 
arid 1565, in addition to the productions of Palatino and other masters, it was not until 
1571 that any book of this nature made its appearance in England. 

The earliest writing book printed in this country appears to be ' A Booke con- 
taining divers sortes of hands,' ' Set forth by John de Beau Chesne, P. and M. John 
Baildon,' and ' Imprinted at London by Thomas Vautrouillier, dwelling in the blacke 
frieres, 1571." [The preface is dated 1569/ This is printed, in the manner of the 
early Continental calligraphic books, from type-blocks ; and contains specimens, 
somewhat unequal in merit, of the more common styles in use abroad, as well of the 
characteristic English secretarial and legal hands. Two of the plates, perhaps de- 
signedly, but more probably by accident, are reversed. 

This 1571 edition, from which we take our first illustration (Fig. 1), does not seem 
to have been known to the early writers on English calligraphy ; they only refer to a 
reprint by Richard Field, in 1602. It is very probable that only a few copies were 
issued, more as specimens of the printer's craft than for general circulation ; although 
the fact that the majority of examples are in English shows that it was specially prepared 
for this country, and is far more than a reprint of the French publication of Jehan de 
Beau Chesne, who had printed his first work, ' Le Thresor d'Escripture,' at Paris in 
1550. He is said to have come to London, and settled near St. Bartholomew's Hospital. 

In this place a reference may fitly be made to a manuscript book of calligraphy, 
prepared with great care and elaboration, perhaps from the above-mentioned book as 
model. This volume consists of thirty-one folios — several of them being illuminated 
in colours— and measures 9J by ~'_ inches. It was made for presentation to Queen 
Elizabeth ; bui as notes , n the fly-leaf show it to have remained in ihe master's family 
for several generations, the presentation probably never took place. The title is a copy 
of De Beau Chesne and Baildon's book, with the substitution, for their names and 
imprint, of the words, ' Set forth by Wyllyam Teshe of the Citye of yorke, gentleman, 
anno 1580.' (Brit. Mus., Sloane MS., 1832). 

Similar exercises of skill are occasionally met with : and it is evident that by this 
time the new profession of writing-master was in a fair way to become duly established. 
Vve can, therefore, now pass to the consideration of the best known of the later English 
calligraphists — Peter Bales, the pioneer of shorthand, and the man who is generally 
stated to have been also the first of his profession to issue a printed book of instruction 
in England, though this, as we have seen, is not the case. But the p<<rt taken by

INDEX 

to VOLS. L II & III. 



PRELIMINARY NOTE TO INDEX 

by THE AUTHOR 

To index a largo number of persons of the same surname in such a 
way that the reader can easily pick out any individual he may be in search 
of, is not an easy problem to solve. The names John and William occur 
frequently in most branches of the Baildon family; obviously to put all 
the Johns and Williams under one heading would be of little use. To 
add the particular branch to which they belong would help to some 
extent, but might actually be misleading. For instance, my father, 
Joseph Baildon, was of the Mirfield and Dewsbury branch, but never 
lived at either place. He was born at Coventry, and lived successively 
at Sheffield, Newcastle-under-Lyme and Southport where he died; How 
is he to be indexed so that he can be readily picked out from among the 
numerous other Josephs? It seems to me that the only possible way is 
to index him under all these places. To place them all together, thus — 

Joseph (Coventry, Sheffield, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Southport), 
would involve a search through all the Josephs to find, say, Joseph 
of Sheffield. 

After numerous experiments I decided on the following plan: 

In the case of single Christian names, each individual is indexed with 
the name of a place in brackets ; if he was born, lived and died in the 
same place, there will be only one entry ; but if he moved about, there 
will be separate entries giving the places of birth, residence and burial. 
In many cases this involves two or more entries for the same person 
{e.g. my father is entered four times), but the advantage to the reader is 
clear, and a considerable majority of persons occur under one place only. 
The place of baptism is taken as the place of birth in the absence of 
information to the contrary. 

In the case of more than one Christian name the necessity for 
distinguishing individuals dees not arise unless the particular combina- 
tion of names occurs more than once; Francis Joseph Baildon of 
Southport must be differentiated from Francis Joseph Bayldou of 
Sydney; but where the combination occurs once only (e.g. my own), no 
such mark of distinction is necessary, and therefore is not given. 

It is also useful to make a distinction in the case of wives, who are 
Baildons only by marriage; these names are printed in italics, with the 
pro-marriage surname, when known, in brackcis. Where a Baildon 
married a widow whose maiden name is known, the maiden name is 
given as well as that of her first husband [otherwise the name at the 
time of the marriage]. Where the pre-marriage name is not known, 
a is added in brackets, thus: Jane ( ). 

Mr. F. W. Cudlip, Assistant Librarian, Bishopsgate Institute, London, 
E.C.l, is responsible for completing and editing the index.
